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.

Novo projeto Valkyria a ser revelado no dia 20 de Novembro

Por meio de sua conta no Twitter, a SEGA revelou que uma novo título será introduzido à franquia Valkyria.
De acordo com o tweet, o teaser site estará sendo alterado gradativamente dia após dia e enfim tudo virá a público para o mundo todo no dia 20 de Novembro ao meio-dia (Japan Standard Time). O teaser site oferece as opções de idioma Chinês, Coreano, Francês, Italiano, Alemão e Espanhol, assim se torna evidente que se trata de um lançamento abrangendo o público no Ocidente.
 
 
Atualmente o estúdio Media.Vision, responsável pelos títulos anteriores da franquia Valkyria, está envolvido no desenvolvimento do jogo Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth Hacker's Memory, com data de lançamento para 14 de Dezembro. Desta forma, é muito cedo para se afirmar que um novo Valkyria está sendo desenvolvido neste exato momento.
Valkyria Chronicles 3 ainda não foi localizado no Ocidente, então esta possibilidade não está sendo descartada. Um remake envolvendo o segundo e terceiro títulos para as mais diversas plataformas a este ponto também é possível.

About this blog

This is just a small blog I keep for myself and will hopefully try to keep up with. If not, I do apologize.

Entries in this blog

Mikuru//X

So I start my first life blog post at the end of the year huh? Really shows where my priorities have gone when I can make a life blog post but can't keep this site going to save me.

2016 has been a spiral of good times and bad for me; some of which I somehow wish I could redo over or regret. Some of it are accomplishments (to me) that I'm proud of and hope to build up upon in the next year. The thing about me is that I'm never happy with my current state of life....always wanting something better but I feel that because of where I live, that hinders me from wanting to progress so I end up staying where I am, never to move beyond what I'm doing....always dreaming of what could be, I suppose. I think that's mostly about my current state at my current employer. I want to progress but things that are out of my hands are keeping me from doing so. Because of this, I feel like I want a career change but something not in logistics & manufacturing. Doing this for over 10 years is wearing me out and honestly, I'm bored of it because I'm doing it out of necessity to keep my current state of life, not because I enjoy it.

 

In my gaming career, I think I'm pretty much done with Street Fighter. In all honesty, I've been sick of it for a long time now because it's all people play in my hometown, with the exception of a handful of people I know that plays other things. I love Koihime Enbu, I love Blade Arcus, I love Nitro+ Blasterz, I love Guilty Gear Xrd, I love Urban Legend in Limbo, I love Aquapazza, I love Arcana Heart, and much more for they make me feel like I'm having fun when playing them because it's something I don't see ALL THE DAMN TIME. Yeah, I play lots of fighting games but I also love MMORPGs and others....but I really don't play sports games (with a few exception....one being 3 on 3 Freestyle Basketball Online). Speaking of MMORPGs, I've officially ended my life in Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn. I felt like I wasn't progressing fast enough and that I was being left behind everyone and even those in my Free Company "Viva Eorzea". Since then, I've been spending a good deal of my MMORPG life in Black Desert Online.....partially because it's Pay-2-Play with no subscription and because it's more action based & life simulation. I play as I want and I'm not too far behind anyone in my guild "Haki". All in good fun, I'll say. Anime Weekend Atlanta in September has come and gone and that - I can say - was one of the biggest accomplishments in my life. Never have I worked with a 3rd party gaming publisher to help promote their games and have them attend the convention to help us. Last year, I did get support from Arc System Works with promoting Arcana Heart 3 Love Max but that was only on a promotional level and they did not attend but this year I worked with Degica Games to have them promote their games with us at the convention. It was really fun to have them there and I really want to thank Nick from Degica for giving us a chance to show off some of their games to the con goers. Hopefully, we can have them back again next year to show even more.

 

In life, I've gone on a month and half long diet which has done me some good but now I feel as though I'm gaining that weight back so I really should get back to my exercising routine again. This was mostly due to my high blood pressure and weight (I was 219lbs and gone down to 206lbs). Other than that, nothing else eventful has happened. Well, with 2017 knocking on our door in just a few hours, I hope for next year, things will go in a different direction for me but for the better. I hope we all don't burn in hell here in North America with the POS we're going to have as president. We are so screwed.....

 

 

From everyone and myself at Anime Toshokan, Happy New Year everyone!
