A thread for anything and everything concerning the anthropomorphic (or otherwise in some cases) personifications of boards on 4chan and possibly other chan based websites.

I guess I'm the one doing this since no one else has bothered to make a thread for them here on the new /coc/ board yet.
If there is ever a 4chanime, I think I know how to get about it.
Season 1: Focus on the main cast being /a/, /co/, /tg/, /x/, and /v/. There will be appearances with /d/ and other boards that were the main focus from the 4chanhouse site. Season 1 will be mostly the season on goofing off. Most likely this is where the initial pairings take place. The time is pre-2010. The villain depicted is /b/.
Season 2: It's not anything new to have boards be deleted. This is the plot for season 2 that introduces special appearances from sites outside of 4chan.
Season 3: 4chan 2012. /r9k/ and /pol/ (/new/) returns. The main villain is /pol/. The plot goes through clashes with reality vs. internet. At this point, outside sites have made regular appearances with the 4chan boards.
Season 4: TBA.
OVAs: Pretty much fanfiction material that covers the Winterball, 4chan cup, and various activities with 4chan users, including creations of the /co/verse, /tg/verse, etc.
/aco/ had a very heated and prolonged argument over who /aco/-tan should be. They have yet to resolve the issue and are now trying to ignore it because of how much shitposting happens when it gets brought up.
Meanwhile, I've seen a ghost and a marble statue proposed for /his/-tan. An opossum furry rolling around in garbage for /trash/-tan seems to be generally agreed upon already. And I haven't seen anything for the /news/ board yet, though I haven't been looking. I hope it's not another /pol/, that design has already been used for both /new/ and /pol/ in the past.
The /new/ design was used for /pol/ because of the /new/ redirect. It was one of the reasons /pol/ users couldn't settle on the design of their board tan. They literally had two different userbases on the board.
>>51847 The latest is J/aco/lyn is the /aco/tan with /Aco/rn as her sidekick a la /co/lette. The other potential tans are now residents and costumers of a brothel including Madam Peacock. So a nice expanded universe already. This agreement seems to make the most people satisfied. The BrokenLynx style seems to be the most accepted.
Writefaggotry is /aco/ is the old West of 4chan, J/aco/lyn is a Lone Ranger type hero with her largely mute sidekick deputy /aco/rn. They rustle up /d/eviants and eastern hentai that have wandered into /aco/ territory. Maybe /d/tan is a villain here. The daring duo owe money to Peacock and stay/work at her brothel.
