I kinda miss the Anime Stock Exchange though I didn’t really follow it that closely. craydaq-asx.blogspot.com

It’s been about 3 1/2 years since the Anime Stock Exchange has updated and though I don’t have the drive to revive Crayotic Rockwell’s concept of writing short weekly reviews of shows and crafting stock quotes for each, I think it would neat if the idea came back somehow. I guess the Anime Power Rankings is a current method to gauging the pulse of a select anime watching community but it feels more like a magazine poll you’d see in Newtype or Animage.
I used to play on the Hollywood Stock Exchange years ago so I’m fond of the idea of creating stock symbols for media properties.
Here are some ticker symbols I thought of for currently airing shows, trying to keep each within 6 characters:
Dog Days’ – DGDYS2
Horizon in the Middle of Nowhere 2 – HRZN2
Humanity Has Declined (Jinrui wa Suitai Shimashita) – JINRUI
Hunter x Hunter – HXH / HUNTER
Joshiraku – JOSHI
Koi to Senkyo to Chocolate – KCHOCO
Kokoro Connect – KKCNCT
Moyashimon Returns – MOYSH2
NakaImo – IMOUTO
Natsuyuki Rendezvous – NTREND
Polar Bear Cafe – NBEARS (#nichibears) / PBCAFE
Poyopoyo – POYO
Space Brothers – SPBROS
Yuruyuri♪♪ – YURU2
and some from the fall schedule:
Hidamari Sketch x Honeycomb – HSXHC
Psycho-Pass – PSYPSS
Robotics;Notes – RNOTES
Feel free to chime in with your own symbols for series past, present and future.
