Site History

Anime-Envoy started in 2005 as an anime info site and in addition to that, had summaries for several shows.
The site slowly evolved into a more multi-purpose one after Webcomic “Anivoy” was added and a couple of downloads appeared.
Eventually, how hard as I like to admit it, Anime-Envoy became a blog site with additional stuff.

In 2006 the site got a visitor boom after the Guild Wars themed webcomic “Requiem for Sanity” went online.
As I posted updates about these on several Guild Wars forums, it started to gain a fanbase.
Unlike Anivoy, Requiem got more lovin’ on the animation department.
However, for continuity reasons and me often being a lazy ass, Requiem updates slowly (Sorry).

Meanwhile, Anivoy had its up and downs and went into hiatus so Requiem could get more attention.
The outcome being that Requiem has caught up with Anivoy’s comic count.

With 2009 came a hosting switch. After the move, I got an extra domain to use.
Anivoy.com was made which turned into my web Portfolio and the new home of Webcomic “Anivoy” T2 (Take 2, doing it right!), which is currently a mix of drawn- and photo comics.
Things didn’t go “just as planned” due myself suddenly being found in Internship where I had to work. At least I got paid..

And with those funds, Anime-Envoy gained the “Anime-Envoy Corner~!”, hosted by Gin-chama (Eventually scrapped, though the figure posts still pop up).
These consisted of monthly posts showing merchandise I had obtained.
The AEC later got me into photography and playing around with comedic scenes for my articulated figures like Revoltech and Figma.
That was the point of no return, where I spend all my money on those Japanese toys.

2010/2011 were horrible with my mother fighting cancer.
She eventually passed away mid-2011. Blog & comics were updated far apart from each other.
I didn’t really feel like drawing, so I swapped to Figure Photo comics for a while (The Legend or Araragi-kun).

2012+ was HIATUS HIATUS HIATUS.
Very messy period.

2014, started to work on a side-project. Very longterm.
Currently named Scéal, it’s a Guild Wars 2 story that unlike Requiem will at least initially not follow the main story at all.
It’ll be split into Mysteries (released through Visual Novels made in Ren’py) and Adventure (Which’ll be either plain text or also VNs, dunno).
Wrote a lot, some sketches, but very rough. But being in this solo, progress is slow.

In 2015 I tried to get back to drawing Requiem – even animated a cool new Opening – only for muscle pains to get in the way (Thanks for that light RSI, Guild Wars!). Holding a pen for about a minute already started to hurt, so went into recovery for a long time.

Late 2016, getting act back together irl, lots of prep work. Then PC died.

Armed with a better, faster, stronger PC, 2017 is planned to bring back the Weekly Comic Schedule. No figure comics though, I just don’t have the space to take good pics right now.
Anivoy.com is now fully the Comic/Portfolio site, while Anime-Envoy.com is the blog for my ranting.
