    Welcome to the 9th rebirth of the Anime Thread!
    This is your returning procrastinating host Yolky and I'll be with you for another 99 pages worth of shenanigans if our thread doesn't melt the servers.

    Upon returning I had to think deeply on the theme I was going to go with AT#9. To further this thread into Japanese corruption, I have decided to go with a chibi Touhou to enlighten the rest of the forum of it's greatness
    You might see something a bit different this time around beside aesthetics. Leading with a battalion of drama titles behind her, Roxy will be sharing duties as co-host. The 'A' in AT not only stands for Anime but also Asian going forth. I'll still be managing the anime section (among others) while Rox handles all other Asian material such as the Drama and Manga. So make sure to check out all sections of the new AT to take advantage of the new offerings.

    Anime Newbie? Love all things Asian? Don't worry, you'll fit right in.
    Here in the AT we are a happy family (Rona is the pet penguin that provides us with an endless supply of ice for our drinks ), so feel free to ask anything ^^

    What is Anime?
    In the simplist terms, Japanese animation. TheOtaku.com defines it as "A new type/style of drama in Japan which uses fictional, 2-D characters instead of real people, and has many different genres (Fantasy, Sci-Fi, Adventure, Comedy, Romance etc) and each Anime has is own suited, mostly not targeted age groups because of the varying elements of maturity within the different shows themselves."

    Sign me up! Where do I start?
    A good introduction of yourself and you anime experience is a good way to begin. Once you have been logged into the registry, the vastness of this thread will start to envelop you. If you need suggestions of something new, just give a shout. Everyone here has their own tastes and will gladly help you. Whether your are looking for a calm romantic slice-of-life or Q's Eyestabby gallery of horror, we've got the goods to satisfy your cravings :mh:

    Here are the predecessors of this thread. The evolution of the the glamorous AT minus a good chunk due to the Great Rewinds. Ask us about it one of these days, but make sure you have lots of time to lend. Only #3 and #7 survived, the others remain lost but active in hopes they may return to life one day.

    The Anime Thread #1, The Anime Thread #2, The Anime Thread #3, The Anime Thread #4, The Anime Thread #5, The Anime Thread #6, The Anime Thread #7, The Anime Thread #8

    Why do we exist? Why does any of this exist?

    • To expose the rest of the forum, friends and family to the wonders of anime
    • To have a place to discuss anything anime/manga/asian related
    • To create a close knit "Family" to bombard with facepalms
    • To apply our gained knowledge from anime to real life situations

    To make sure all our residents and guests have the most comfortable stay, we ask that you follow these simple rules and regulations while you are here. First and foremost, stay on topic... :indiff: I'm just messing with you If you go off topic when replying to someone that's alright. It happens. We have replying formats to help direct those unwanted topics to the proper person. Here are the few rules that we make no exceptions on:

    • Respect Everyone
    • No Hentai
    • No Derogatory Slang
    • No Flame Wars. Please take issues with other people to Private Topics.
    • Don't Worry, Be Happy

    Replying Format


    When you write it in your window, it should look something like this:
    Remember it. Use the reply method, copy the code from a previous post. Unless you are replying to someone above you or use a specific quote. What most people do wrong is making the colon bold or colored. Colon is outside and not colored. Look at the code above. Also, to ensure general readability and understandability of your posts, you should use full sentences. Instead of ‘Well that sucks.’ In reply of a topic that is already 3 pages gone, you should write something along the lines of ‘Well that sucks we don't have spoiler tags cause Nikki just spoiled another plot point for herself.’ If you’re replying to a post just one or two above yours though, you can use whatever broken sentences fragment you like because we ourselves are broken and fragmented human beings. To the Bat Cave!
    To add another thing to the Reply Format: As I said, you can use quote tags, but please keep them to a minimum and don’t quote the quote of a quote of another quote. They may be useful for replying to something a few pages ago, but we’re the AT and not a ladder factory employing penguins.

    Spoiler Format
    Where there’s talking, there’s spoilers. Since we do not want to ruin everything for the people who haven’t seen the anime yet, we use Spoiler Tags and since this forum doesn’t have that function, we just created a workaround.

    Always use purple color tags as spoiler tags. See how hard it is to read?
    "Anime/Manga" Spoilers
    Your paragraph...

    This is how it will look in your window:
     "Anime/Manga Chapter" Spoilers
    Your paragraph...
    Stylish CSS
    Due to past odd color schemes I've had to adjust the colors to be easier to read. It also helps with keeping our spoiler tags relevant until we decide to go with the new default in the event the CSS style is changed. To use this code, download Stylish for Firefox. (If you don't use Firefox, any CSS editor should work). In your status bar there should be a 'S' icon. Right click and write new style for forums.ubi.com and paste in the code.

    Every person, animal, object and alien will be tagged upon entry into this thread. Any additions will be made under my authority in this totalitarian state
    If you want to become a Resident post frequently and contribute to the thread, but don't spam. Small off topic posts are fine. Just remember that the main subject is anything Anime or Asian related.

    Residents: Physically live here. No really, they breathe anime.
    Neighbors: People who like to drop by and chat about anime every once in a while.
    Travelers: Previous Residents and Neighbors who moved away but come back for major holidays. But usually unannounced.
    Ghosts: People who have fallen off The Grid. Some rumors say Rona is keeping them cryogenically frozen in his penguin fortress of solitude.
    ?: Mystery title(s) can be created at any time based on what happens here. Mostly used for humiliation and for the punishment game

    Icons are the little pictures beside some members’ names. With these you can mark your favorite anime. They’ll be placed next to the animes you like in the Anime List further down. This all happens on request, so make sure your icon is 16x16 pixels to qualify.

    We decided the new Anime Thread to also include a list of mangas because in some cases the anime is really bad and not reading the manga would be a real pitty. Of course there are also mangas that don't have an anime yet, or if they do they ended it before the manga was finished, so the more reasons to make a Manga List! I will also include korean mangas in the list because there are a few good ones, so here we go: ^^

    anyway, dave, add me to the following:

    soul eater
    love hina
    FMA and FMA: brotherhood
    The Familiar of Zero (needs to be added to the list)

    oh, and btw, Air Gear falls under mature. i just checked the dvd cover.

    I My Me Strawberry Eggs
    My Bride is a Mermaid (i might add this one when i finish... good stuff)
    <STRIKE>La Blue Girl</STRIKE>

    as for that mio voting thing... i'd be highly surprised if she didn't win. that girl bleeds moe... especiallly when it looks like she creamed the other girl the first time.
