    Drawing is love, drawing is life ouo


    Aceials 's interview:

    Who are you? Tell us a bit about you!
    --Well my name is Andre, I'm 15 years old, I like gaming, playing guitar and I'm a military child so i've been almost everywhere in Europe. Oh, also I'm dyslexic af.

    How and when did you Join AoA?
    --Like most people here, after watching SAO, I searched for a game similar to the anime. Found this commiunity and joined by a different username before it switched to VBulletin. And now I'm here.

    What is the origin of your username?
    --Since my nickname irl is Ace, i wanted to stick to it but made it a little more original. So i added the 4th letter of my middle name, 1nd letter of my first name, 1st letter of my last name, and the last letter of my last name.
    (tl;dr i just took my nickname and added a bunch of desu at the end XD)


    What's your favourite hobby?
    --I started taking up guitar lessons last year. Now I play my guitar whenever i have the time or whenever I'm bored.

    What's your top 3 Anime?
    --I have a lot of favorites but my top 3 would probably be Parasyte, Death Parade, and Guilty Crown.

    What's your favourite game?
    --The Kingdom Hearts franchise are definitely my favorite games. (even though I only had the first game and no memory card save it T-T)

    Is there anything else you want to say?
    --I'm glad to be part of this community and honored to be member of the week. Can't wait to hang out with
    everyone in-game :D



    Anon's interview:


    Who are you? Tell us a bit about you!
    I am Anon I am currently in New York, 16 years old (turning 17 in December \o/). I play a lot of games some of the ones that I currently play are osu, World of Warships, and Neverwinter. I usually like playing assassin type characters.

    How and when did you Join AoA?
    I joined AoA on the previous forms and I was looking for a MMO like SAO (no ranged weapons) and I found this site.

    What is the origin of your username?
    There was a story I once read about a boy who was named Anon by his mother because she liked a poem or something that was written Anonymously. I forgot what the story was called but the name stuck with me.

    What's your favorite hobby?
    Playing games, watching anime, sleeping.

    What's your top 5 Anime?
    In no particular order Dragon Ball Franchise, Bakuman, Hunter x Hunter, Code Geass, and Steins;Gate

    What is the most important thing in your life?
    Spreading the word of the great potato and his teachings. Ever since December 30th 2014 (imagine everyone shouting random anime names with one of the words replaced with Potato in the SB) I have undertaken the mission teach everyone how the Great Potato has brought potatoes in this world to be eaten by mere humans like us so that we may survive in this vast and cruel world. If it wasn't for the mercy of the Great Potato most of us wouldn't even be alive.

    Is there anything else you want to say?

    Kathrall's interview:

    Who are you? Tell us a bit about you!
    My name is Kathrall and I'm the most amazing awesome person in the world!
    ..
    Okay actually, I'm a 19 year old college student who lives just outside of Toronto, Canada. My main hobbies are gaming, hanging out with friends, and as expected of someone in college a lot of partying. I'm also writing a fanfic in my sparetime, but that is meh.



    How and when did you Join AoA?

    I (like 99% of everyone else here) watched Sword Art Online and was instantly hooked on the idea of an MMORPG that could replicate (to an extent) the world of SAO. I stumbled across this little project in June 2014 and have been hooked since.

    What is the origin of your username?

    When I was 13 years old I really really really wanted to play world of warcraft, but I never was able to because my family didn't have the money. I wanted to play it so badly that I even had a friend who played the game give me his gamers manual and read almost every page of it. Afterwards I started reading lots of lore for the actual world of Azeroth and there were two characters that stood out to me, Thrall and Vol'Jin. Eventually I got my own computer and downloaded the trial and since Thrall was a lot easier to twist than Vol'Jin I simply added the "Ka" and my username was born!

    What's your favourite hobby?

    It's gotta be a toss up between gaming, comic books, partying, and basketball.

    What's your top 3 Anime?

    1. Fate/Zero
    2. Fate/Stay Night: Unlimited Blade Works
    3. Naruto


    You've been the leader of a few guilds in AoA so far. Tell us their stories!

    Well originally I joined the New World Knights way back in August 2014 and really reformed it. The leader was insanely inactive as well as every member, so I asked the leader if I could be second in command as to make roster changes, notifications, etc. in his absence. During the period of September 2014 - January 2015 the guild skyrocketed into a 70 member guild. Back when I was running it we had a council of sorts to help maintain such high numbers, but I was still left with a large majority of the work and eventually just wasn't really feeling running it anymore and resigned in March. After that I had a short stint with another guild, but that didn't last long. Then Treyhax and I began talking and we decided to make our own guild which we currently run, Ancraid's Elite.

    Is there anything else you want to say?

    Everybody make sure you do your part to help this project grow! Weather it's a donation, VIP purchase, clicking the website ads, or even just sharing this project with your friends. If you want to see this project come to life, make it come to life!


    (Last interview is coming soon!)

    In my opinion I think the original way of doing the interviews is more pleasant to read, since it's more of an actual interview. The other way seems like a very small biography lol.

    Great job as usual, Leo.
