Due to EvoSpace shutting down his website Akihabara Channel (http://www.akiba-ch.com/) as well as the forums on it, the MangaGamer official forums have now been moved to a new site. The forums were migrated over from the original forums, so all posts and users were retained. Bug reports and technical help questions were moved into their own sub-forum as a part of this move.


Comments can be tracked using the RSS 2.0 feed.

You can respond, or trackback from your own site.

    It seems pretty unprofessional of them to use a free hosting service. Why couldn’t they just host it on their own server?

    Wait, what? Why would Evo shut down his blog? It was a good source of info for the latest Japanese events, releases, etc. and he’s actually been reviewing Visual Novels that are lesser known in the English community.

    This is what EvoSpace wrote on his blog before shutting it down:
    “I’m sorry it’s so sudden, but as of today, I will end the update of Akibahabara Channel. To put it bluntly, I no longer have the willpower to continue on. Thanks for everyone who were following this strange blog with rather poor quality text and photos since 2007…
    When I first came to Japan, there were so many things to see, but as time went on, everything seemed to be repeating itself, with similar releases all the time. It’s not that any of these contents are boring (actually they are all wonderful in their own way), but it became rather tiring to follow everything. Since I’m only going to write about something I am interested in, it would be too much (and embarrassing, lol) to continue a website of this size alone.
    As for now, this url will be left as it is until the server contract runs out. After that, I might be posting something even more useless somewhere else at a much smaller scale. You are free to take whatever contents this website holds in the mean time. As for the forums, I will prepare a new location and post about it.
    When I have more time, I would like to continue on with my doujin project as well. But right now in my free time, I’m just proofreading away on MangaGamer.com’s new releases, hoping for the improvement in translation quality of commercial visual novels/bishojo games.
    But the best thing I got out of this is making new friends all over the world. But it’s not like I’m going anywhere. You can still find me on MSN or my old Beast’s Lair message board. Please let me know if you are stopping by Japan! I am always up for Melty blood and Lycee matches. =P

    Well… that’s really too bad. I wish he could have left it up for archiving purposes even if he doesn’t have the time/interest to write any more. He had a bunch of interesting posts.
