    Dear all -

    I am happy to let you know that the directors of boards.ie Ltd., owners of boards.jp, have kindly agreed to release the content of our site back to the community, and we are reopening the site at our original address of www.mangatoanime.com - reverting the site name to Manga to Anime (M2A).

    I hope that you will be interested in joining us again at Manga to Anime.

    I have tried to import as much old content as possible. We have also imported all of our old album images, blog posts, and podcasts into the Manga to Anime forums. We have lost some few posts when we operated briefly last year, but these will be archived as HTML files later.

    In parallel with our reopening, I plan to run a series of banner ads soliciting donations to a Japan disaster recover fund. I will send more details of this later.

    For now, I hope we will see you on the site soon. Invariably, there will be some bugs, but we are making a list of things to fix. Thanks for your attention, and chat to you on M2A!

    Good to see that the old romping ground is back! So many memories from high school, good memories and some learning experiences from here too. I'll pass on the word that M2A is back.

    I think good old Cave Johnson said it best.

    ...Perhaps the implications are dubious at best.

    STILL!

    Who wouldn't agree that the world is a better place thanks to explosive lemons, and the relaunch of M2A. It's kinda like putting on an old, comfy sweater that's been tucked away for far too long.

    Cheers, ladies and gentlemen.

    Oh, I like this guy.
    BURN HIS HOUSE DOWN!
    Burning people! He says what we're all thinking!


    On a more serious note, great to be back. That's right, you're all stuck with my administration once again! :)

    Oh no.

    I think Dante Alighieri wrote about a level of hell involving Matt as an administrator. Fortune save us! I repent! I repent!!

    "We are souls who posted in ignorance,
    all trollers to our final hour, in which
    the lamp of Bakamatt shed its radiance

    into our hearts. Thus from the brink of death,
    repenting all our trolls, forgiving those
    who trolled against us, with our final breath

    we offered up our accounts at peace with Him
    who saddens us with longing to behold
    His glory on the throne of M2A."

    Purgatorio, Canto V (5), lines 52-60:

    Hey buddy. I'm inclined to agree. It's like a ghost town in here.
