    Most users ever online was 3,773, December 30th, 2003

    We even have the refugees from rightstuf and if there's 10 people online at the same time it's a good day.

    What happened?
    Release Cyborg 009 TV series from 1979 on DVD in U.S.A. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Anime in the US was perhaps at its most popular around that time so that could be one reason. Toonami was really big in the early 2000's which got tons of people into anime. DVD sales which also very high around this time so AnimeNation probably had its biggest sales during this time.

    The forum just faded since then, many moved on.

        If I recall correctly, over 3500+ of the logins at that time were all guests which I always thought was odd.

          Since it got tons of people into anime, some of them are bound to still be into anime, Sure there are always followers of various fads, those people will fade away. But still, since this is one of the last anime forums every person from other anime forums that goes down should in time be here. This is the last bastion!

          How can you move on from anime? If you like anime you will stay with it, anime is that awesome. So the only place they could have moved to is FB and Twitter. That is a problem, even companies neglect there websites to update there FB page.

            There's many who would watch Toonami in the early 2000's that no longer have interest in anime. Anime overall has never really been mainstream but if there ever was a time when anime came the closest to mainstream it was in the early 2000's. From Toonami to other network kids anime(Pokemon, Digimon, etc.). Started to get traction in the late 90's and hit the peak in the early 2000's before declining.

              For some people it's simply entertainment and nothing more. For others, the interest is still there, but real life just gets in the way (career, spouse, kids, other hobbies, whatever). There's only so much time in one day.

                The introduction of new forms of mainstream social media in the mid 2000s might also be a contributing factor. Facebook, Reditt, YouTube and Tumblr provide a more diverse pool of users to interact with than a typical forum. Users on forums like this are also more tight-knit, which might detract new members from jumping into the fray.

                    Pretty much this. The anime boom caused a surge in popularity of anime, but a lot of people have seemingly moved on. I got into anime during that time, but I guess I'm a lifer at this point

                          A lot of those are probably bots of some sort.

                              I think that one factor could be the sheer volume of media content that is available in this day and age; anime, or otherwise. There is sooo much; between DVD and Blu-ray, online shopping and brick & mortar, streaming and cable, manga and graphic novels, console and online gaming, cell phones and social media… the list goes on. Who has time for a forum when consuming so much media? Many people don't pick and choose either. They attempt to keep up with all of it. I have no idea how they do it, or how they afford it.

                              There was recently an interesting article at ANN comparing the current media and anime "bubbles": Answerman - Is The Anime Glut And The American TV Glut The Same Thing?

                              Quite hopeful for the our beloved anime. I love anime.
