    A lot of care and effort has already been put into making both the front page and forums responsive and very usable on smartphones. If there are issues with the theme on your smartphone I'd much prefer to work with you to help resolve them as opposed to making a separate app. There are ongoing costs with apps. I once experimented with Tapatalk's branded app version and to keep the Apple iOS version going it cost $10 USD a month (Tapatalk) + $99 USD a year (Apple Developer Program) . And with Tapatalk the experience was so different, especially with how topics and user profiles were displayed. I'm not ruling out having an app in future - I would LOVE to have the ability for the same alerts you get here on AF to be sent out as push notifications on your smartphone, which only an app can reliably do. But our community just isn't large enough to warrant it at this time due to the cost and time needed to develop and maintain it. If we ever get an app developed, I would want it to be done right - to maintain many of the features we have here because I know some of you have made your profiles really pretty with the covers and background images.

    Hello everyone, Anime Forums will be undergoing a server migration at: 6 AM, Saturday, November 21, 2015 (Pacific Time) (10 PM, Saturday - Western Australia time) We are doing this move to get more increased storage, as we have almost outgrown our current server due to the increasing size of our lovely anime Galleries and file attachments. Our host will be doing a two-tiered approach: An initial copy will be done approximately four hours before the scheduled migration. At 6 AM, the server will be shutdown, and an updated sync will take place to copy any new posts and content that was made between the initial copy and the server shutdown. During this time, Anime Forums will be offline and not accessible. Assuming all goes well, we will be back online after the migration is complete. I don't have an ETA how long it will be offline for, but it should not take longer than a few hours. Thank you for your advance patience and understanding.

    This may cause me to seem like some sort of grinch. I apologize if that is the case, but this has been kind of bothering me for a while now. The Creative Corner board on this forum is bogged down with threads that serve no purpose beyond advertising Youtube videos, posted in large part by folks who have displayed no interest in the forum beyond that purpose, who in some cases don't even bother with an introductory thread before they begin their advertising spiel. Case in point, taken from the first page: https://animeforums.net/community/threads/check-out-my-youtube-channel-doki-doki.3777/ https://animeforums.net/community/threads/re-anime-podcast-new-episodes-every-friday.3774/ https://animeforums.net/community/threads/need-some-help-please.3767/ https://animeforums.net/community/threads/hi-may-you-check-this-yuri-on-ice-vid-i-did-comment-feedback-very-much-appreciated-3.3765/ https://animeforums.net/community/threads/top-10-anime-quotes-fullmetal-alchemist-brotherhood.3764/ https://animeforums.net/community/threads/may-you-wonderful-people-check-my-new-original-anime-vid-i-posted-the-other-day-3-commentfeedback.3762/ https://animeforums.net/community/threads/animania-tv-recommendation-s01e01.3755/ https://animeforums.net/community/threads/may-you-awesome-people-check-my-new-anime-original-video-about-bleach-fairy-tail-naruto-shippuden.3752/ https://animeforums.net/community/threads/may-you-wonderful-people-check-out-my-new-original-anime-vid-may-you-comment-feedback.3746/ https://animeforums.net/community/threads/may-you-wonderful-people-check-my-new-original-anime-yt-video-i-posted-on-yt-comment-feedback.3742/ https://animeforums.net/community/threads/my-2-videos-i-posted-yesterday-today-may-you-wonderful-people-check-it-out-comment-feedback.3739/ https://animeforums.net/community/threads/my-new-video-i-posted-the-other-day-may-you-awesome-people-check-it-out-comment-feedback.3734/ https://animeforums.net/community/threads/%E2%9C%96-top-10-anime-quotes-death-note.3730/ https://animeforums.net/community/threads/hi-may-you-amazing-people-check-my-new-yt-video-on-my-yt-channel-i-made-an-original-anime-video.3723/ https://animeforums.net/community/threads/%E2%9C%96-top-5-anime-quotes-masamune-kun-no-revenge.3708/ https://animeforums.net/community/threads/%E2%9C%96-top-5-anime-quotes-detective-conan.3686/ https://animeforums.net/community/threads/hi-people-call-me-bell-and-i-love-anime-games-etc.3663/ https://animeforums.net/community/threads/my-new-youtube-video-may-you-give-me-feedback.3678/ https://animeforums.net/community/threads/celestia-community-invite-3.3650/ https://animeforums.net/community/threads/one-punch-man-english-song-cover-kanashimi-tachi-wo-dakishimete-tv-size-version-ft-lollia.2230/ https://animeforums.net/community/threads/my-song-covers.3562/ Twenty one threads - that's half of the front page being taken up by people who have never posted outside of their own advertisement threads and/or their own welcome thread. So --- what's the big deal? This box provides at-a-glance information regarding what people here are talking about. It seems like, more often than not these days, it is taken up in large part by "Check out my thing" threads posted, again, by people who have displayed absolutely zero interest in this community. Instead of having topics that are likely to be of interest to the community and worthy of actual discussion being highlighted at the top of the index page, we instead have nonsense that, frankly - based on the average number of replies these threads get - nobody cares about. In addition to jumbling up the content listed in the New Topics side bar, it also pushes topics that might be of actual interest to folks down amongst a mess of spam threads. Given that this forum often tends to be fairly low activity (which is okay), this means that posts to threads that actually have some degree of substance can take a while - meaning that they can get pushed down far enough that members who don't scroll beyond the first several threads (and could they be blamed, if all of those threads are simply video advertisements?) or beyond the first page of threads won't even see them. With that in mind, I very strongly request something along the lines of these three options be implemented. There may be better courses of action available, however this is what comes immediately to mind. 1: Prevent members who are under X posts (where X is a small and easily reached number) from making threads in the Creative board, while also removing any threads advertising Youtube channels or videos that are created elsewhere in an attempt to sidestep this. 2: Remove threads located in the Creative board from the Recent Topics side panel. 3: Allow people to advertise their channels and videos without restriction, however limit them to one thread and require that any new videos or content they wish to advertise be placed within that thread, something that is most courteously done in the case of this thread. Apologies for the rant, but I rather like this place and want it to do well - as such I strongly urge that any and all actions that can be taken to make it more appealing to people passing through be taken. While the impact of this particular bit may admittedly be limited by itself, there are probably a fair number of other such minor improvements that can be made... and little things do add up. Anyhow, thank you for taking the time to read my ranting.

    Sooooo.... I've been feeling like a bucket of llama cr*p the past few days (although I'm trying my best to not let it get to me) Thus, I decided to help myself feel better by doing the only thing I can do well: worship master @Davis ^ω^ like the loyal evil minion I am Also, I wanna practice drawing on my tablet, which is a real pain since I have zero experience in digital drawing. What does this combination of severe affection towards master and the need to practice gives us? The 'A Day in the Life of Davis' series of illustrations that I'll be posting here from now on. Keep in mind I am a noob and I'm doing this for my own pleasure only, so don't expect to see anything of artistic value. You have been warned (illustrated in Manga Studio)

    Yo, I'm awesomedude20, as you can clearly read next to this post. I'm your anime curator! Technically! Waiting on the Anime tab to get some work done. AAAANYWAYS, being the anime curator, naturally, I know anime stuff. Feel free to ask for recs, I kinda live for that sorta thing, though entirely expect to get Senki Zesshou Symphogear, like you shouldn't even be surprised. But yeah, hope to meet folks around the forum and whatnot!

    I have made some major adjustments to the Anime Episode Discussion section. When browsing the section: The columns have been adjusted to allow more thumbnails The preview text has been hidden Also, to help tie the episode threads together, I will be adding a bar for titles that have at least a few episode threads. This will allow you to jump between episode threads, the anime page (to view the plot and write reviews) as well as the general discussion thread. Some examples of it in action so far: Re:Creators Attack on Titan Season 2 (try jumping between episodes and the general discussion using the bar!) It's a work in progress, and I'm still creating episode discussion threads for the previous season (I'm a little behind). Please feel free to start episode discussion threads of your own and I will also link them together in this way. The end goal is to do this for all anime titles going forward to make it much easier to navigate and boost anime episode discussion.

    aw scrooge gets punished for a silly misunderstanding again~ since it does take quite a while, i think the traitor would probably rethink posting it at all in that amount of time. i was originally going to no vote, but i think thats kind of pointless with this many votes so ill have to vote John Jobs

    RIP Scrooge. Don't do dumb stuff next time. Anyway, here's some circumstantial things to consider: shortly after first round wrapped up, Sekkarou was spending a decent little bit of time engaged in conversation and/or looking at the profiles of various players. It also sounds like he was engaging in a "what do you think would be a good strategy if I were the traitor : D" conversation with Scrooge earlier. :V Kirry's death is potentially a misdirection play meant to paint a target on the most outgoing player in the game - myself. If I had been killed during the night, it'd be clear and evident that I wasn't a traitor, but by taking someone else out, the argument can be made that anyone else playing as a traitor would've killed me first - unless I was, myself, the traitor. With that said, Nectar has been 'laying low' to the point of complete and utter comedy - in fact, if memory serves correctly, Kirry called him out for it. Whether or not he'd take her out as his first act of aggression is in question, however - since, well, she did just call him out. He'd have to be a bit dense to go after her immediately.

    My greatest regret? I think that my greatest regret is not coming out of the closet a little sooner. My mom was hyper-religious (and then she wasn't), so I waited until I was a bit older than most, I think. Kinda detracted from my extra-curricular experiences in college, I think, hahahaha. My greatest joy, other than @zoop? Okay, that's easy. It's writing. That's a little too easy, though, so I'll be more specific. My greatest joy is when I have created hundreds of pages of backstory and I then sit down to create a story in this world. There's just something amazing about the feeling of richness that I get when there's nothing but a world, and I need to start a story... Okays! Normally, I write fiction, but I think that I'll tell you one of Grandma's stories. Back in the 1930s, my grandmother was a little girl, and every once in a while, the whole family would gather together and drive out to this abandoned church on the edge of town. It had the most beautiful apple trees in a fairly neatly maintained garden. Technically, the apples were supposed to be the property of whoever owned the land, but well... No one was ever there. The area was completely abandoned. Since no one was ever there, Grandma's folks decided, this one year, to swing by a little more frequently. After all, it wasn't like anyone cared about the apple trees. They also decided to invite a few folks from the neighborhood as well. It was basically an apple-picking convoy, hahaha. They had like a half-dozen cars and everyone drove out with the plan of picking every single apple. APPLE PIES FOR EVERYONE!!!! Well, they drove to the old church and started picking apples, and they were having a great time! Talking, laughing, tossing apples around. They were about halfway done when someone started playing the organ at the church. It was loud, the sound carried clear through the wall, booming outside the church so loud that it felt like it was right there. It was about that time, the choir started to sing as well. A beautiful hymn, beautiful but fairly old. Sounds of laughter and people talking excitedly started coming from inside the church as well. Grandma and her folks panicked. They went to go into the old church and apologize to the people there, because they had basically been stealing the apples. However, it was the strangest thing in the world. When they opened the door, the music and everything could be heard, but the place was compeltely empty, covered in dust and cobwebs. It was empty, but you could still hear the noises from inside the main hall. Right around that time, these whispers started. "Who are these strangers? Why are they stealing from God's land? Someone get the pastor! We have to do something! Those are OUR apples!" I guess I don't have to say what happened next? After staring for a few moments, just fucking stunned, Grandma was the first one to haul ass. She ran to the cars, grabbing as many apples as she could carry along the way. Everyone else followed, grabbing as much as they could carry, running as fast as they could. They reached the cars, cranked them, and started driving off while people were still jumping on. The last one on was Grandma's youngest brother. She actually had to grab the poor bastard, drag him behind the car, and then pull him into it. Thus, they drove off, dropping apples the entire way and laughing like lunatics. Grandma told me this story ages ago. She said that since I was such a serious kid, there's no way I'd believe her, but it was true! And, the apples were delicious. Frankly speaking, I believed her. My grandma was actually a really serious person. She almost never smiled, rarely hugged, and wasn't the kind to make jokes or tell tall stories. Ummm, anyways, so that's my story. I wouldn't use them, tbh. Godlike powers are a little boring. I'd rather just be normal. >.>

    I have to look pretty far back to experience this...it's been a while since I was a teenager. I still have a lot of the problems I had as a teenager - they're the kind that, unfortunately, will probably never go away - so when I think of what I used to be like, I can still relate to that to a degree. But some of the attitudes I used to have...yeah. I was not a very nice teenager. I don't think I'm particularly nice now, and my worldview is even more bleak and bitter, but at least I don't take that out on others the way I used to. I grew up a little, I suppose? I dunno. I don't honestly think it's worth looking back at who I used to be. What I need to focus on is who I am now, who I want to be in the future, and closing that gap. The less I can empathise with my past self, the better.

    Hello everyone, We are launching a new feature: Articles. This is an evolution of the Blog section - although the written entries were great and easy to get to, they didn't quite look their best as they were just forum posts. You can access the Articles section here on the navigation bar: You will then be presented with the Articles homepage: Articles currently come under four different categories: Episode Reviews Recommendations Comparisons Special All members are welcome to submit an Article! If you're interested in submitting an Article, check out the Article Guidelines on the top of the Articles homepage. When viewing an Article, comments can be posted by clicking on the Discussion tab. This will take you to a forum discussion thread that is linked to that Article. All the old Blog entries were converted to the new Articles system. We decided to maintain using forum threads for the Discussion component to preserve the existing comments that were made on the previous Blog entries, which were in the form of forum threads. To reflect this, the Blogs section on the forum list has been renamed to Articles. This section now houses the Discussion threads for both old and new Articles: Many thanks to the members that tested this feature out prior to launch. We do hope the new Articles section makes Anime Forums more fun to use! And perhaps you may be interested in submitting an article... Any feedback and suggestions to further improve this new feature is welcome. Now on another note... The position title for one of our staff members, @drill has now been updated from Community Manager to Admin. This was done to simplify the title. And also it's a lot easier to refer to, as Community Manager has seven syllables versus Admin which has two syllables. But it was also done to acknowledge the hard work @drill has put into growing Anime Forums - he has been a great help, putting forward lots of new ideas and making significant contributions when Anime Forums was an even smaller community. Thank you @drill. As a reminder to all members, please don't hesitate to approach any of our staff if you need assistance, have any questions, feedback or suggestions. We're happy to help - above all, our highest priority is to provide a friendly, fun and relaxing place for all anime fans from around the world!

    Old Disney movies! The Fox and the Hound, Homeward Bound (I even bought the VHS tape to watch recently) and today I’m going to see the new Lion King Stand by me is also another one that is nostalgic for me for the reasons you’ve listed, along with The Sandlot - I used to play a lot of sandlot baseball as a kid, so the memories are great. I’d recommend watching the movie “The Mid 90s” for all the 90s skaters out there. It was a good time to be a hoodlum

    I honestly have a much different view of people than most do ... In my opinion most of the world is in a very grey area. Seeing as I do not believe in "good" people and have always been more open to criminals, villains and bullies through out literature or film than most others, I do not think anyone who does something bad is automatically a "bad person". I am a very religious person and although most religious people think sinners are evil and wicked I have always said that everyone is wicked. Everyone is evil. If sinning makes you a wicked person then everyone is guilty. However, I do not view "bad guys" the same way most people do. I often times can side with them in some way, or even fully, since I can see their side so clearly. (I am prone to seeing every side of the situation quite easily since I am very open to listening to the "villains" reasoning as well as seeing the hero's side of the story.) Also, people tend to judge everyone quickly based on what they know, but when we do this we actually have nothing to base our opinions on other than what we've been taught, or the little we've got to see of the person. This is why I like to refrain from judging people as good or bad, I also think everyone deserves forgiveness if they are truly repentant.

    Agreed. Anime, around the time I started getting into it, for some reason had this stigma. It was almost something to be embarrassed about enjoying.. However, I believe this is most likely due to the cultural differences. Even though different cultures were accepted during that time period, I'd say for sure that it is not as widely accepted as it is now, if that makes sense. I live in America though. So... I'm in a country full of people who hate other people for no reason. lol Honestly, it was the lack of understanding where it came from and what it was about or why certain things were the way they were.
