While you're waiting for signups to open, why not tell us what's awesome about your fandom?

Leave a comment here with reasons we should check it out, places to get the canon, links to ship manifestos/picspams/resources, or just plain old squee.

With multiple media to offer/request and a whole continent of awesome things to nominate, it's never too early to start pimping your fandoms. What are you guys thinking of asking for this year? What do you wish somebody else would ask for? (Where do its fans hang out? Can we advertise there?)

Pimp early, pimp often! :D

Nominations are now over. Please check the previous post to make sure I've got yours down correctly. And now on to fandom promotion!

It's great to see people already bonding over rare fandom love in the nominations post, but obscure fandoms can always use a boost. Tell us why your fandom is so awesome we just have to check it out before signups. Link us to your AMVs and picspams, chapter summaries and subtitle downloads. Tell us how long your canon is, what languages it's available in, and where we can find it.

From Japan, we have tons of anime and manga, but also lots of games, dramas, movies, and other media. Japanese sources make up over 80% of our fandom list, so I'd like to take a moment to highlight these other fandoms for those of us looking to branch out or pick up something new.
