Anime Web Turnpike Closes

It’s the end of an era, folks. Just shy of 20 years, it seems that The Anime Web Turnpike has finally closed it’s doors, meaning the site (and the mirror of the “classic” site they kept up purely for nostalgia’s sake) is now offline.

For those of you who might be too young to remember, Anipike was THE website for anime fans back in the day. Before Google & Wikipedia, Jay Fubler Harvey started Anipike as a simple link directory for all the anime & manga related websites he could find—and it quickly grew to the place anime fans would go to to find fansites, image galleries, and news. You can read about Anipike’s timeline up until 2006, when the site tried to undergo a makeover under new ownership, here.

Goodbye, Anipike. Thanks for the memories!
