Just what the heck is an “Animation Revelation,” anyway?
An animation forum that started small and eventually expanded its horizons into the illustrious world of cartoon reviews and informative/humorous articles.
How often do you update?
Whenever we can. We all have jobs and/or school and none of us make any money off of AR, so we don’t always get the chance to write for it as much as we want to/should. There’s usually at least one or two new posts each week, though. Sometimes more.
So, who writes for you guys?
Dr. Insomniac Bloody Marquis, Avaitor, Foggle, and DaemonCorps comprise the chief writing staff (with the latter being the review crew captain). They produce the most content and know their shit well. DaemonCorps also made our forum’s banner and the logos for the website’s index. +Rep for him!
Desensitized Spark Of Spirit, and SNES Chalmers Comeau occasionally produce pieces for the blog, as well.
Do you accept guest submissions? Can I send you something?
Sure! Just PM one of the aforementioned people on the forum, and they’ll get you set up. You can also email Foggle, if you’d rather.
How’d you guys get started?
It was a beautiful day in 2008. July 29, to be exact. It was on this day that a bunch of friends from TV.com and toonzone banded together to create their own animation forum. With blackjack. And hookers. Originally Avaitor’s idea, it has since been under his command with help from Foggle and Ensatsu-ken. Reviews (via Blogger) were first implemented in August 2008, with Features added in July of the following year. Most of the forum posts from the first two years were, unfortunately, lost due to some faulty SQL servers. Since September 2011, AR has had legitimate, paid hosting(!) and a .com domain(!!) to accompany it. In January 2012, we upgraded to hosting that didn’t suck total ass. September 9, 2012 saw the beginning of our Thaumatropy podcast, while day 30 of the following month kicked off our hosting of The Ooo Travel Guide.
…Who the hell is Mr. Horse?
A very disturbed Czech Warmblood with a PhD in interspecies sexual relations. He’s something of a mascot for AR. Mr. Horse occasionally posts on Twitter when he gets extremely horny and sometimes screws around with the website’s layout on April Fools’ Day. He once described his childhood as “similar to My Little Pony, but with more genital mutilation.” It is worth noting that his taste in cartoons is generally considered to be awful.
Foggle is such an asshole!
That’s not a question. He’s basically given up that schtick, though.
The Umineko visual novel is so much better than the anime! Have you read it?
It’s good metafiction. I didn’t really like it much, but it is so much better than the anime.
Why do you hate Clannad?
I think you know.
