Batoto! Announces Its Site Closure


 
Manga scanlation hosting site Batoto! has announced that it will be closing its site up permanently by the end of the month. Site owner RawR has made a lengthy post on their site forums as the reasons for the closure and what is to become of all the content that is currently on the site. Not having the will to keep up with maintaining the site serves as the key deciding factor for the closure but RawR states that this wasn't a decision that was decided just on the fly.

RawR has stated that this decision was something that has been on his mind for a couple of years now but finally decided to put his decision into action. From its creation back in 2011, Batoto has had a decline in users over the recent years and that 35% of the traffic to the site right now is mostly due to bots. Multiple factors have also been stated as to why this decision has been made. Site content is currently being backed up by its administrators as they've been notified of this way in advance than the public. RawR does state it is up to the current site staff if they decide if they want to make a new Batoto or something simpler but overall he will not be returning Batoto as it is now.

Batoto is site servers will start to be affected on January 18th as their servers expires although content on their site may still be accessed by its members. It won't be till the Jan 25th where the site will no longer be functional but RawR states that people should treat the 18th as the official final day of Batoto. 
 
You can read more about this on their forums: BATOTO FORUMS

From us at Anime Toshokan Inc., we wish RawR the best of luck on his future endeavours.

Shoryuken.com Announces Forums Closure


 
This afternoon, it has been announced that staple fighting game community website, Shoryuken.com, will be closing the doors to its community forums at the end of January 2018. Shoryuken's forums has been the "go-to" place for all things fighting game related from information from community members, gameplay strategies, terminology, & a slew of other information vital to those who play fightin games religiously.
 
The Shoryuken forums has served the fighting game community since its creation back in 2000 but its closure has been announced due to decreased use by the community in the wake of social media websites like Facebook, Twitter, Reddit, etc.. Tom Cannon, cofounder of the biggest fighting tournament "Evolution", offer these words as a send off to the SRK forums:

"Shoryuken.com launched back in 2000 with the title “Your competitive edge.” Back then, it was pretty tough to get accurate information about mysterious fighting techniques like the “kara cancel.” The goal of this site was to allow hard-core fighting game players to connect, both to share strategies and meet up IRL to play.
Nearly 20 years later, the way we as fighting game fans consume information has exploded. We’re lucky to have a wealth of content out there now, from YouTube, Twitch, Twitter, reddit, and more. In a world of highly-connected players, the need for a centralized info hub is greatly diminished. So, it’s time to say goodbye to the SRK forums.
It’s been an epic ride, and I’m glad that we were able to provide a discussion venue for all aspects of the FGC, from tournament strategies, player meetups, stick-building resources, etc. Thanks to everyone out there who spent time on the site."
 
To help facilitate the transition of content from the forum section to other locations, we’re leaving the forum site open until the end of the month. Front page news and editorial content will continue as normal. We appreciate your readership, and encourage you to look forward to new content from Shoryuken throughout 2018.

:: About Anime Toshokan Inc. ::




Anime Toshokan Inc. is a fan driven community website with the goal of helping spread all things dealing with Japanese anime, gaming, & pop culture that has been online for over 18 years (under various other names during transitions).


:: History of Anime Toshokan Inc. ::

Anime Toshokan Inc. started out as a personal anime fansite years ago in 1998 by it's creator Michael Anderson (Mikuru//X) during his junior year of high school. Back then, the site was titled "Katsuhiko Jinnai's Humble Anime Home"; back which the site was mostly focused on all things related to the anime series El-Hazard: The Magnificent World. Around that time, the site and it's various pages were hosted on multiple free web hosting sites such as Homestead, Geocities, Tripod, Xoom, & Talkcity (back in them days, they all had free homepage services but are now either gone or made into paid web hosting services). With an ambition to make a site where fans can come together and bring content to other fans, the site continued to grow until it eventually incorperated 2 anime titles under which it will be a fan site for - Battle Athletes & Tenchi Muyo.All 3 anime titles were from the anime company AIC (Anime International Company). In early 2000, Michael left for the military and the site was abandoned before anymore updates and changes could be made until the Summer of the same year. Upon returning from the US ARMY basic training, new ideas were formed and the site name was changed to "AIC World".

With advancements in web designing since the site hiatus, more content & services were added to AIC World such as streaming music (thanks to services like Live365 which has also gone to being a full paid service). After the events of 9/11/2001, Michael was deployed overseas and the site went on hiatus again for 9 months. During that time and with limited internet access, plans to reconstruct the site began and with the thought of talking about all things anime and bringing in things related to video games, the site went through another name change and that name stays with the site to this day - Anime Toshokan Inc..

As part of Michael's A.G.E.S. Project (Anime & Games Entertainment Service), new staff was brought on due to interest in such things as Japanese doujin games & Stepmania. At that time, Anime Toshokan have done things which can't be changed in its past such as illegal downloads of game software & anime fansubbing to some positive things such as Stepmania simfile & theme creations, it brought us an audience that was rather diverse at best but nontheless, a good one. In 2010 after all the buzz over Dance Dance Revolution & Stepmania have long died out, it was decided that Anime Toshokan would cease all illegal activities and focus more on trying to build a community that educates and inspires people to be creative in in things such as manga drawing, 3D art, game development, & many more.

Because of the drastic changes, it has made our community leave and site still stands to this day with only its founder and a handful of admins (in chat) still at the helm.
