    Write your story and post them on the forum, and they might get chosen and be posted here!

    The first story of the reboot is:

    World of Sword and Sorcery

    This is a story written by @Takita-chan , with 2 long chapters. It is amazingly interesting, The main character's sensations are well described, along with the scenario's details.
    The last line goes like this:​
    "With a trembling hand, Takita reached out to close the UI bubble. The dark text burned into her mind, petrifying her. It just couldn’t be true."

    I really enjoyed reading it.
    Be sure to check it out!​

    Takita-chan's Interview:

    Who are you? Tell us a bit about you!
    ---------------

    How and when did you Join AoA?
    I joined AoA around 2013 when one of my friend linked the site to me, this was around the time where we both just watched Sword Art Online and felt some sort of hype torwards the series. In the begining of my time in the forum, I was extremly shy and rarely talked to people I didn't know. But with time this changed and I became more active on the site as i'm still here today.

    What is the origin of your username?
    I used to use Fuyuki until two of my close friends gave me the nickname Takita since Fuyuki is a masculine Japanese given name which is occasionally used as a surname and means snowy winter. It's nothing fancy but still a nice story to tell ^^''

    What's your top 3 Anime?
    Oh dear uh. Well.
    > Sword of the stranger (Anime movie, really good. Watch it)
    > Donten ni warau
    > Re:zero (I couldn't really pick a 3rd so I went with one of my favourites from this years spring season) ^^''


    What are your plans for the future?
    I'm actually planing on studying abroad for University.

    What's your favourite hobby?
    Hmm. I wouldn't say that it's a hobby but i really do enjoy reading ^^''
    I also have a thing for watching food videos. It calms me down.


    Is there anything else you want to say?
    If I would summon up my time on AoA, I would say that it has given me great memories. But also two great relationships that I would never regret. Besides the best thing this site have done for me is the friends i've gotten through my 3 years on here. And honestly, I would never want to change anything that's happened, good or bad. Because even at the end of the dark tunnel, there is light.



    Neritou's Interview:


    Who are you? Tell us a bit about you!
    I'm Neritou, a 17 year old weeaboo britbong. There is not much else to say.

    How and when did you Join AoA?
    I joined AoA in around late Feb 2014 (I'd tell you the exact date, but the first forums are kill). I got obsessed with game design and anime at the same time, which lead me to Sword Art Online then discovered AoA. I only come here when Noz makes me now.

    What is the origin of your username?
    Contrary to popular belief, my name does not actually originate from Naruto. I don't even remember why I wanted this- I must have just wanted some weeb name and spat this out. I'll have you know I go by Chalk now, but Xeno won't change my name. 8)

    What's your top 3 Anime?
    There's so many to choose from, but if I had to narrow it down:
    Serial Experiments Lain
    Neon Genesis Evangelion
    Berserk​


    What are your plans for the future?
    Not end up homeless hopefully. If I manage to not fail college HEH.

    What's your favourite hobby?
    I like to create stuff in my spare time. Art, music, websites etc. I like to pretend that I'm being creative to make up for the large amount of time I spend procrastinating. Most of the things I make are products of procrastination. I'm ashamed of myself.

    Is there anything else you want to say?
    Am I getting paid for this?
    (Comment by Leo:
    No. But you will pay me 420 AoA Cash)



    Jinkou's Interview:

    Who are you? Tell us a bit about you!
    Uhh.. I am Jake I like science animals and video games.

    How and when did you Join AoA?
    I first found out about AoA from the facebook/streams back in Feb 2014? I made an account back in May 2014.

    What is the origin of your username?
    My username is self created, AoA was the first place I used it. I spent 30 minutes coming up with it ;p.

    What's your top 3 Anime?
    My favourite 3 animes are HunterxHunter, Code geass and Clannad.


    What are your plans for the future?
    In the future..
    I would like to do something in science/research or with animals, but if I had a choice it would be doing something involving video games.



    Nozomi's Interview:

    Who are you? Tell us a bit about you!
    I'm Nozomi. I like cursing and WW2-era fighter planes.

    How and when did you Join AoA?
    I don't really remember how I found AoA. I joined December 2013.

    Who are your favourite AoA members?
    Ohh boy.
    Everyone in SnP and ISA.
    also naruto

    What are you doing professionally?
    I'm currently a student. That's pretty much it.

    What's your top 3 Anime?
    Zankyou no Terror
    Drifters (manga, but it's going to get an anime adaption later this year)

    I feel bad for putting such little effort into my interview. I was a little drunk and getting rekt on league, all meanwhile having to deal with Willy over discord.

    Thanks again for picking me! @Kasegawa @Nozomi @Takita-chan @Neritou SUCH GOOD CHOICES :doki:
