Came across this website in the beggining of this year and have really been enjoying it, so I think it's time for a little signature.
It's really great to find one of these personalised webpages (that are active) nowadays, and the sheer creativity and effort of making each little subpage different boggles my mind. It's a rare gem now when everyone and everything has moved onto some sort of social media feed.
Apropos feed, I really appreciate the use of RSS/Atom, not many pages use it and it's much more easy to keep in touch with things that don't update daily. I've enjoyed your little anime reviews.
Godspeed, Archen.

I actually forgot to ask. Do you work with what? The design with the website is incredible and so nostalgic.
Archen Said:
I just use a text editor (currently Vim, previously Notepad+) and an image editor (currently Krita, previously Paint Shop Pro 5, and sometimes Photoshop)

Hello Archen, first I apologize for my poor English, I hope you understand. I am Brazilian and I found your site through wiby.me, a search engine that filters old sites. I am happy for your commitment to the site, whenever I can I will visit your site. Have a nice day.

Man, you're awesome for keeping this page going. It's a couple years older than me, lol. And there is so much content!

Going back to browsing the pages. That stuff is inspiring. Maybe I'll fill out my page, https://prem.moe with some more content.
Archen Said:
Never too late to start on your own website.

Wait, .moe is a top level domain? That's hilarious.

Fave Manga: Beelzebub
.Welp, my last entry was from 2018. How are things going? With the corona and all.

My anime list seems to be getting stagnant. Just currently watching one piece. :(

How are you coping with the lockdown? Wish you good luck! See you next year! :)
Archen Said:
Things are going surprisingly well for me actually. I've been lagging watching anime myself lately. I think I'm getting a bit tired of so many shows never concluding, but I'll probably get back into it more this summer. Hope things go well for you too.

Hey Archen, hope all is well. Happy New Year! I see you've still been making reviews, they're very nice to read. I saw a few others recommending Tsukihime, I'd recommend that as well. A remake of it was just recently announced. Here's hoping this year's better than the last.

Dropping by to let you know I really love the amount of dedication and effort invested into your website, especially how every page has its own unique design, it's wonderful and I've never seen something similar to it on the web before.

I also recommend playing Tsukihime visual novel like what the user Arcueid said. It's not very long, definitely much shorter than fate/stay night VN, each route can be completed in around a day or so (5 routes in total), but it would totally be worth your time. I'm actually jealous you own physical copy of it, lol. Well anyhows best of luck dude, and MERRY BELATED CHRISTMAS x---D

Hey Archen! Just stopping by to see what's new? Been a crazy year! 2020: when everyone was stuck inside or fighting for toilet paper.
Archen Said:
There certainly hasn't been a better year to sit at home and watch anime to forget about things, that's for sure. That said, my year has been kinda great actually. Lemonade out of lemons I guess :)

I can’t believe this site will be 25 soon. Every few years I remember to come back and get nostalgic then feel OLD. Almost makes me want to make one. I miss my pathetic geocities/angelfire websites. I miss rambling in strange places on the inter webs
Archen Said:
Angelfire is still around! Get started on your ramblings today :p

Weird to think, that among all those early free services like Geocities, Tripod, Webring, etc; that it would be Angelfire surviving the longest. Then again I'd never imagine my site would outlast the Anime Web Turnpike.

I would definitely love to see you try your hand at some visual novel reviews! Especially a thorough review of the Fate series proper. I think it's a shame that a lot of people get into the series through the flawed anime or the sequel/prequel animes rather than the original entry into the series (which I personally believe to be by far and wide the BEST entry). As always, love the site.

P.S. - looks like the link to 'Mahou Tsukai Tai!' on the Archen's corner of the site directs to an empty page.
Archen Said:
I'll have to see how it pans out time wise for other reviews.

I actually had a Mahou Tsukai Tai review a long time ago, but never re-wrote it when I re-tooled my review section. It's one of my favorite shows (still) and every time I try writing a review, I feel I don't do it justice so I never finished it. Didn't think anyone would notice, but I guess after decades that was bound to happen. O_o

Fave Manga:
Great site design. Crazy to think this has been worked on before I was even born. Love the reviews and unique taste in shows/manga. I've seen your fate page which is cool, and some other visual novel images like Muv-Luv and Tsukihime. Maybe you've just seen the adaptations, but It would be awesome to see reviews on the games themselves if you've played them. I'd recommend playing some Ryukishi07 titles like Higurashi and Umineko if you wanna get deeper into the genre. Anyway, thanks for maintaining the site and hope to see more stuff soon!
Archen Said:
I actually have a physical copy of Tsukihime (which I guess is rare), but I keep forgetting to play it. I thought about game reviews, but that would be pretty time consuming, and I couldn't do enough to really justify a section on it that people would want to visit. Hoping to have time for more visual novel stuff. I haven't played one since Doki Doki Literature Club.
