STOP USING ANIMEONLINE.NET! READ BELOW TO KNOW WHY!
Just read some disturbing things about our benevolent 'new owners'.
They are the same people who run the website "Mangafox", otherwise known as the most popular online Manga reader on the net, rumored to rake in $3,200 a day in Ad revenue.
And then Trunks linked me a thread posting from Baka-Updates: Baka-Updates Manga - Viewing Topic - A Tale of Two Manga Readers
The GODaddy registrar information has since been set to private, to hide who the owners are, and the WHOIS for animeonline.net has as well (In the case of Mangahere and Animeonline, the changes were a mere week or so apart, and coincide with the current changes taking place here on AO).

Judging from the unscrupulous tactics employed by NOEZ on Mangafox and Mangahere, what happened to the websites mentioned by Asa, I cannot let this stand.

By using it you are giving Ad revenue to the charlatans who run this site.
Animeonline once was a site ran for the Anime Community for the Anime Community. This is no longer the case.
But you do have an Alternative: In February I started a new community called Otakuzen.com.
Otaku Zen is run in the same manner as AnimeOnline used to be run before it was bought by NOEZ. The staff who currently run AO are the Same staff who run OZ. If you go there, you will be greeted by exactly as you would here. But there is a Difference.
You would be using a website run by someone who actually cares about Anime, not some no-faced Chinese media firm.
Please, I emplore you, stop using Animeonline.net. By doing so you are supporting a company that is exploiting free work from its staff for monetary gain.
Please follow the link in my signature to Otakuzen.com, and Discover your Inner Otaku!
