Yea I've been hanging around here for years too. Did you have a different name, I see you said something about that in your first post, what was it? You could start any project up ya want, plenty of people kicking around here.
I have been around since 2005, did take some breaks.
Animelover was my Sig, since then the Sig was taken/hacked.
The anime we were going to do was space opera.
It morphed into a battle where a bunch of brave warrior were summoned to save a station.
Everyone thought this was a great original idea.
Until I pointed it that it was the Seven Samurai in space.
I think Samurai 7 came out as the same time of the thread, I am not sure if the entire thread was there to yank our chains.
May of 2005 I left board for three years when I was not able to watch the Anime network.
Only one I can remember about was going to be space opera.
Entirely possible that the thread happened after I left.
