History

Early 2014 – Late 2014: Founding and incorporation

In collaboration with pinetreegator (who brought the channel name), #/jp/shows was established on January 10, 2014 by Gerardos as a request by several users from #/tv/shows who were not happy about having 2 tv streams (the american and the japanese stream) running on one channel at the same time because "it creates confusion in the chat, no one knows if the person is talking about one stream or the other". The channel was later registered by the same user.

2015 – present: Development and management

Blabla yaddayadda.
