If been pondering about this one for a while and seen some of them pop up. How far are we allowed to go with questions that don't directly affect an anime but a more Regular like question about anime such as:

Will you ever "grow out" of anime? — other example on site

I know questions like;

What is your favourite anime soundtrack? — other Example on site

are not appreciated


Questions about anime in general are allowed, and encouraged. We don't need in-universe questions only.

Look at the FAQ for example:

Anime and Manga - Stack Exchange is a Q&A site for enthusiastic anime and manga fans. This includes questions about:

  • Plot, character, or setting explanations
  • Historical or societal context of an anime or manga
  • Anime and manga identification
  • Franchise/series reading or viewing order
  • Anime and manga production
  • Tropes, terminology and other general anime and manga related information.

Not all of these are directly on specific anime.

The second example you gave is a list question, we've had a chat discussion over it and defined rules about questions whose answer is a list. You can read it here: What is the status of list questions on this site?

  • That answers it thanks allot ^^
