Title: Introductions not required? Oh well, here's mine, anyway!
Post by: Zelkiiro on April 08, 2016, 03:37:37 AM
Greetings, everyone! I am Zelkiiro! A very scant few of you might remember me from Anime Academy before it mysteriously fell off the face of the earth! I'm not sure why I waited this long to finally sign up here and get yet another chance to contribute my (always correct) opinions on anything and everything, but here I am!

SHOWER ME WITH LOVE AND PRAISES!!

Welcome!

Forgive my ignorance, I'd never even heard of anime academy before today. Could I know a bit more about you? Favorite anime?

No worries. If you're unfamiliar with the old Anime Academy, the Internet Wayback Machine allows you to view most of it! (https://web.archive.org/web/20131020122841/http://www.animeacademy.com/) Also, my blog site in my signature will let you know most of the basics about me--my favorite anime include popular titles such as Fate/Zero and Gurren Lagann, but also a few more under-the-radar titles like Now and Then Here and There and Fantastic Children. As far as anime films, my favorites are Millennium Actress and Lupin III: Castle of Cagliostro.

Hope that helps! :'D

Many new faces (including me) to refresh the scene down here lately. It's good. Oh and no need to pay attention to me:D I'm just the decorative palm tree in this community. Pretty to look but all in all just a tree in the backgrond. (What i mean is glad to have you on board captain):3

I guess, since I don't remember the name 'sevenzig'! Did you go by another name back then, or is my memory just failing hard? :V

W-wait. I know I am a phantom member who binge posts in this forum, but what is Anime Academy? I hailed from Seventh Style, yeah, one of the most notorious anime sites during its heyday. A wallflower is who I am today, and I am mostly in the sidelines like Equilibrium. Expect me to post on relatively obscure shows. lol

My greetings, Zelkiro-dono!

Anime Academy was the site NHRV branched from. Think of it of a site with a similar writing standard and approach to anime as this one...but without the blackjack, or hookers.

Anime Academy is the school TIF got expelled from because he's too cool for school :X

Post by: samui on September 12, 2016, 09:10:12 PM
Oh. I thought NHRV is the original site. I see. Thanks.

So, AA was when TIF is in his delinquent days? Jk. (Kidding TIF)

I remember being quite saddened when Anime Academy just suddenly vanished. Lots of content I still wanted to read >_>

AA was fun.  One of the few places I could go to seriously discuss anime and have episodic breakdowns and beatdowns of shows and have a ton of people participate.

Honestly, the only difference between AA and NHRV is the population size.  The community that existed over there was one for the ages, and I was really sad I got banned there.  I still remember what it was that became the final straw on the camel's back, and I still won't apologize for it (**** EMO KIDS AND YOUR SHITTY AS **** CULTURE!), but it wasn't like I didn't deserve it.  I was a jackass.  I still AM a jackass, but I think I've mellowed out a lot over the years.

Every so often an old AAer shows up at NHRV to remind us they still exist, and then just disappear.  No matter how hard I try, I just can't quite recreate the community here that existed there.  Don't get me wrong, y'all are great, but the volume just isn't there.  Another ten or twenty regular active folks would be awesome.

Of everyone I made friends with back in the AA days and still know today, only one person still watches anime. One out of a group of nine of us! I'd watch more anime if I didn't have such slow backwards internet. Who still even has dsl anymore!?! THIS GAL.

I could always give shows to you by mouth to mouth sohryu.  That's an established way to stream videos, isn't it?
Title: Re: Introductions not required? Oh well, here's mine, anyway!
Post by: sohryu on September 13, 2016, 02:23:47 PM
That is the preferred old school way to do it! :O~

Also I forgot Ritalin and Yuri are on Facebook so that makes one out of 11 people I know that still watches. YIKES

We all grow up and change.  Real life gets in the way of a lot of things.

Which is weird, because anime is arguably even more accessible now than it was back then.

AA was where I spammed my way to 1000 posts so I could change the title under my user name.

Seriously weird. I figured once I was an "adult", I'd totally be up to date. I'm lucky if I remember to read the latest chapter of something. Not that I've gotten behind on Tokyo Ghoul:re again >_>

Yo!  So, I just started getting back into anime recently and for nostalgia's sake I thought I'd stop back by the old stomping grounds, even if it is kind of dead around here.  If you don't know and/or remember me it's probably because I haven't been around in the last decade or so.  I tried to recover my old account, but it was made with an email acct I no longer have access to so I decided to change my name slightly to make it work (brownie points for anyone who can guess my old name).  Anyways, I'm kind of bummed there aren't more people still around from the old days.  I've browsed around a bit and the only names I really recognize are the Typical Idiot and Major Ground to Tom Control.  A few of the other names look familiar but I'm not sure if we ever really talked much (and if we did, forgive me.  It was ten years and a LOT of dead brain cells ago).   I was hoping maybe Pheld, Tama, or Zirilan might still be around, but it doesn't look like it. 

Holy shit!  Do you have to do that stupid verification bs for every post you make?  No wonder these forums are so dead.  That shit is cancer. 

Ooh!  I just noticed GS posted in this thread not... too... long... ah shit, it's been almost a year.  Anyway, it'd be cool to get reacquainted with some people again, though I have to warn you I've turned into an anti-social cynical narcissist over the last few years and those are just my good qualities.

I was wondering if you were DarkKanti or if you were just a really good copycat troll.  I don't have Zah Powah to get you your old account back, but occasionally Sorrow-kun drags his sorry backside in here to weep at the condition of the website and forum, and if he sees this maybe he can help you.

As for the place, I don't know what I should say or even what I can say about the status of NHRV.  The word "grim" comes to mind, though.

Man that would be one sad individual.  I mean, if you're going to copy someone you could do a whole lot better than me.   +1 brownie points for you by the way.

Eh, that's okay.  I'm not that attached to the name anymore.  I barely use it, and only tried to use it over here again for nostalgic purposes. And besides I think my admin privileges were either rescinded or expired at some point.

Yeah, it's a little disappointing tbh.  I remember putting in a lot of time and effort formatting all this stuff to wordpress and transferring all the reviews from the old site to this one.  I really thought it was going to grow into something cool, but it seems to have just stagnated a bit.   :(  Oh well, I guess real life beats the internet.  I'll try and stop by every few days or so and post in whatever threads I feel like posting in, all the while hoping for more traffic from other former Alcoholics Anonymo... I mean Anime Academy forum goers.

That's fair.  I have died and come back to life afterall.  And I'm pale enough that you can practically see through me.   :P

How you been AC?  I enjoyed your Descending Stories review and put it in my CR que to watch later.  I'm always looking for more good anime to watch so let me know if you have any suggestions.  I've become a lot more picky about what I waste my time on nowadays though, but I figure a 10 out of 10 should be a pretty good waste of my time.

Nobody reads anymore.  Everybody just skips to the end to look at the number rating. :P

Seriously though, that's probably the main reason places like AA died and MAL is still going strong.   :-\

Speaking of reviews, why aren't my new reviews being published...?

I was going to ask 'what's going on?'  The main page hasn't been updated in nearly 5 months.  I thought you guys were just being lazy.
