    New Members: Introduce Yourselves Here

    Hallo! I am an otaku. i am watching anime for almost my entire life. I am in constant hunt for new anime . I watch every genre , myanimelist like to give reviews and make fan arts.
  4. Sorry, I just now saw this. Unfortunately, I don't think I'm going to be able to get it back online this time. It uses an absurdly out of date version of Wordpress that's no longer compatible with the version of PHP I'm running. I can make a backup and then see if updating it works but no promises. Edit: That was easier than expected, seemingly anyway. It's back up at the same URL (and now also in the header!) as before and should be working but let me know if it's not!

    Anime which millenium item is the strongest?

    Actually what i think is that the millenium puzzle is the weakest and strongest. Because if you aren't yugi then what good could a 5,000 year old pharoh that forgot his origin and his past do you and plus if you aren't yugi he won't be that interested to help you win a game of duel monsters. But if you are yugi, yami will be glad to help you win every game in your way and once you will help him remember his past he will be very happy to give you the powers of a supreme pharoh. So if you aren't yugi i don't think the puzzle is for you.

    Hello! That is very admirable to be doing that. I will check it out. I apologize that this place is a lot quieter than it used to be almost 15 years ago or more. TheOtaku, the sister site for these forums actually does have a discord server already if you want to try it out as well. Granted it is more of a replacement of the old chat room that the website used to have than just an official news source or anything. I hope to possibly see you there! http://www.discord.gg/APVeFUY

    Ahah . Yeah I was heavy into DBZ at the time. There definitely might have been some numbers after my name for sure; like Roman numerals or something not quite sure.

    Gaming What Are You Playing?

    Happy New Year everyone. I think I'm at that point where games are being put on the back burner for a bit. I can always find the time to play it's just that a lot of these newer games don't do much to interest me. I will admit that I've become a lot more fickle with what I play. For the most part I will play just about any fighting game if folks are interested in playing, but Street Fighter 3rd Strike is the main fighting game you'll catch me playing. I was playing Street Fighter 5 but had a hard time finding a character to stick with. I've even dabbled into Dragon Ball Fighterz for a little bit as well. Only game I refuse to play is Smash Bros. Don't ask, long story there. (Oh, Tekken 7 is life) In any case, outside of fighting games Nioh has all of my attention. I've never been into the Souls-like games because I hate stamina bars. I come from playing games like Devil May Cry and Ninja Gaiden (Xbox). I hate feeling limited in my options. If it wasn't for Nioh's combat I wouldn't touch this game. If you customize William right, you could essentially turn the game into Ninja Gaiden (at the cost of damage for style). Story-wise, I'll concede that the story is your typical Team Ninja type of silliness so it's not worth looking into, but I'm a sucker for samurai/ninjas and I'm always looking forward to Japanese history. Another thing Souls might have on this game is that Nioh have more of a mission-like structure instead of being open world-like so I can see people being turned off of that. I love this game though because of the combat alone and its customization. Anyway, other games I have but have yet to get to; God of War and Zelda Breath of the Wild And since I've last been here of course I'm waiting on Devil May Cry 5 and Ghost of Tsushima. I'll try to at least check in every weekend.

    I'm pretty sure I remember you if your name had some numbers trailing after it. Either way, I know we had to have crossed paths a few times in the DBZ forums given your name. Obviously... you're a bot.

    Anyone here from 2001-ish?

    This thread has indeed been quite a trip. I was here back in the day as an immature youth in the early 2000's or so; getting banned a few times for being an idiot. I am hoping that 15+ years is enough to wipe that slate clean! If not..well then the trip down memory lane will be pretty brief! Pretty sure I was here as my current name, or something similar along these lines. I remember quite a few of the old members. James for sure! Pretty sure I crossed paths with quite a few of the people posting in this very thread as well. Good times. I spent quite a bit of time on these forums with a good friend of mine back in my high school days, not sure what his forum name was but there was something to do with Master Debater in his signature. that might have been it. I tried signing up for this months ago but for some reason something or the other would never work, could never get past the bot thing? Not sure if any others had that issue but after a winter storm up here and having to use some personal time at work I had the itch to try again, and it worked! Good times. Good see the place still up and running to some degree..and just in case 15 years isn't enough to wipe a slate clean, the path down memory lane here was awesome everyone!

    Discord Community

    I always wanted to be in a community that respected my point of view in anime and that gave me help when i needed it the most. I spent a whole year trying to find the best place where i acn chat with different people around the globe and play my fav games the same time in Discord. After almost a year of seraching I got tired and thought to my self why don't I make my own server have my own rules and have complete controll (with help of friends) over everything that is happening and have a nice built community where people can actually have their own room, chat, place to listen to music and chill and talk with others. So I gathered a group of friends (3) and since we already had a small YT carier we thought it was a good idea to make it a Discord server as well. It has been 3 days now that I made this server and just wanted to reach out to people that have been looking for a server like mine^^. Thank you for your time. Discord URL link: https://discord.gg/XbnpA87 This is not a scam I am just trying to create a cummunity. I would me happy if you joined ^^

    THEY ARE ADORABLE AND THE SWEETEST THINGS EVER. ALSO I WOULD LIKE TO RESPECTFULLY REQUEST AN UPDATE ON THE TINY HUMANS, who must now be 18 months or so?

    I'd actually forgotten about it till I saw this haha. Nice to be remembered all the same.

    Yeah, getting into one new game is like starting in on a new TV series: it's gonna take at least 10 hours and maybe upwards of 100. It's a huge time sink.

    Gaming What Are You Playing?

    My problem is that I buy far more games than I actually play. Growing up, there were always certain games I missed out on, and in some way I feel like I'm "catching up" now. But I don't have time to play them all. Also, it doesn't help that Assassin's Creed Odyssey takes 50-bazillion hours to finish, so it kind of sucks the oxygen out of the room for every other game. :-\

    Gavin's legacy will live on forever through this simple phrase.

    Gaming What Are You Playing?

    Could be that as you get older, social and capitalist pressures make you feel guilty for ever spending large chunks of time idly. Or it could be that the ever-mounting sense of life's precious brevity does the same. There's also the fact that most games are still made to appeal to adolescents, and you're probably just outgrowing their aesthetic appeal and crave something more meaningful or at least artful. And like you sort of alluded to with D&D, most video games don't fill people's needs to build and maintain real friendships (unless it's local multiplayer), and tabletop games do. The new Mario Tennis slaps though.

    Gaming What Are You Playing?

    I haven’t been playing much except myself. Divinity: Original Sin every once in a while. Sometimes I’ll pop in Skyrim or Mass Effecf for some mindless nostalgia. Hmm, might be why I’m posting here... lol I kid, I kid. Actually picked up playing Dungeons and Dragons again around the start of the year with some friends and coworkers. That’s been occupying more and more of my free time. Doesn’t feel as stagnant as any of the Far Cry series or Destiny. Getting back into that just reminds me of all the old text RPGs on here. Reminds me of creativity. Why do games feel so boring nowadays?

    Draft Scene -- Home

    Jason restored—and went immediately alert. For the first time in his life, he could feel nothing about his surroundings. His incoming environmental image made no sense. It wasn’t simply one or two informational oddities, or even a lack of existing data to interpret. The data itself defied interpretation. Which was impossible. A retrograde analysis of his passive sensory log indicated no hostile presence nearby—in fact, it indicated no presence of any kind whatsoever, anywhere in range—so Jason opened his eyes. The addition of visual input provided him little more than he had known already. He was in a … place, he decided to call it. He could see no identifying features through his entire field of vision. It was lit, at least, but there was no discernable light source. Nor were there any shadows, he noted, glancing down the length of his body. He tried to determine the kind of light he was seeing, but that, too defied analysis. The most he could conclude was that it seemed to be somewhere between off-white and a soft yellow, but the exact hue remained elusive. It wasn’t gaseous, he decided, as there were no detectable particulates in the atmosphere. If there even was an atmosphere at all. There was something, he knew, since he was still breathing normally, and all the appropriate chemical reactions were still occurring, but beyond the boundary of his body, any sense of air motion in the Place simply stopped. Annoyed, he abandoned the exercise. Maybe exploration would provide him with something useful. He sat up pitched forward hung down lifted “–augh.” The groan escaped him unbidden. An empty cough followed, threatening to become a gag, and he froze, forcibly controlling his breathing until his stomach stopped attempting somersaults. This was a new sensation. It had overwhelmed him in a fraction of a second, and it was unbearably unpleasant. He examined it for a long moment and realised with surprise that it was nausea. Motion-induced nausea. He was the first Nephilim to experience vertigo. Jason sighed. In keeping with the Place’s ubiquitous lack of everything else, he could detect no gravitational trends at all. He wasn’t weightless; or rather, he still felt heavy. But he couldn’t feel any direction to his weight, and combined with the absence of a fixed point of reference, he had no idea if he was standing, reclining, lying, suspended, inverted, sideways, tipped, twisting, rotating, spinning “Guh.” He turned off his gyro synapse. No more of that. Deciding for the moment to assume he initially had been vertical, Jason straightened and, pacing forwards, attempted an exploration of his surroundings. Almost at once, however, he was tempted to abandon the idea as futile, for the frustratingly ambiguous landscape lay unmarred and uniform in every direction. Only his ability to precisely track his footsteps lent Jason any sense of direction; otherwise he might have wandered the Place aimlessly for hours. This thought led Jason to the discovery of yet another oddity: his internal clock was faulted. It was still running, and a quick battery of diagnostic checksums returned true, but its outputs made even less sense than the Place in which he now found himself. Or, more accurately, it wasn’t outputting anything. It was executing exactly as scripted, but when it incremented, it simply … didn’t. It even registered the increment as successful, but the flagged data target wasn’t there. Jason checked the timestamps on his previous observations and found himself baffled even further. All of the markers passed checksum, but every single one decoded to garbage data. Which was impossible; data couldn’t be junk and still verified true. It was as if reality no longer supported the concept of time. Exasperated, Jason sighed again and tossed his arms. His hands flopped up and back down to smack against his legs, the clap echoing faintly behind him. He stopped. An echo? There had been no echoes before. There had been nothing for the sound to bounce off; he wasn’t even sure there had been an atmosphere to transmit the wave. Quirking his head, he snapped his fingers once. Sure enough, the snap returned: the faintest whisper of a click, barely even a few decibels, but loud against the prevailing silence. And with the time delay, he even had a precise distance. Intrigued, he turned to face it, and was met with…. …a rock. A boulder, judging by size and distance. Jason’s eyebrows scrunched together. That hadn’t been there. He was certain. He had surveyed every direction. Thoroughness was second nature to the Nephilim; even his blinks had been corrected by precisely localised muscle seizures. He had seen everything, everywhere, and his entire sphere of awareness had been uniform in its bewildering blandness. There wasn’t a way possible for him to have overlooked the rock; and yet there it was, defying what little reason this Place had left to it, and at a location that matched his aural calculations. He took a careful step towards it. It appeared to be a careful step closer. He took another step. A step closer again. Jason chewed on his tongue. The rock seemed to be an ordinary rock, and the fact that its adherence to normalcy conflicted so strongly with the inherent abnormality of the Place bothered him tremendously. He refused to let the staggering amount of nonsense get to him and, leaving the unresolved processes to hang in the background, set out for his newfound bastion of sanity. He covered the dozen and a half meters easily—although precisely what ground he was covering remained inscrutable—and, after rapping his knuckles against it, was pleased to find that it was, in fact, a real rock. A little over a meter tall and with a blocky, tri-leveled top, it appeared to have broken off from some larger face and fallen, partially burying itself in the nonexistent ground. A pass of his fingers and a quick data analysis determined the stone to be marble, and suggested it had lain here for a few years, judging by the weathering and assuming wherever it had come from possessed recognisable weather. (Jason decided the best approach was to assume anything real came from somewhere Not Here. The idea was still nonsense, but the degree of nonsense was welcomingly less.) And now that he was standing over it, he could see a second, smaller rock a couple of meters past it, also buried in the … whatever, and similarly weathered. Satisfied and relieved at his discovery, and having nothing better to do, Jason decided to experiment. The boulder had appeared when he wasn’t looking at it, and it had remained relative while his attention was fixed on it. What would happen if he stopped observing it? Ignoring the noise-solutions attempting to submit themselves, he strode around the marble block and past it, walking steadily and directly away from it and snapping his fingers sharply in precise one-second intervals. With each click, he listened for the corresponding report and matched the distance to his distance traveled, marking the rock’s location as he left it behind. He was almost two kilometers away, and the echoes so faint even his ears strained to hear them, when the data failed to sequence properly. His next snap didn’t echo. He turned around. Sure enough, the rock seemed to be gone. He magnified his vision so that it should have been clearly visible, but the result was the same: there was no longer anything in the Place but him. Jason nodded, shoving aside his disappointment at once more being the sole connection to reality. At least it had behaved somewhat reasonably. It was a start. He merely had to take things as they came, and more bits would fall into place. His spirit somewhat bolstered, he turned back to continue on. There was the rock. Not a different rock. The same rock, exactly the same distance away as when he had first seen it, but on the exact opposite side. Jason sucked his teeth.
