Site Launch Date 23 May 2016

Description: Sakuga City is a forum for fans of anime, video games, comics, cartoons and other elements of geek culture. We love it all! We are dedicated to being a safe and welcoming online community and hold ourselves to a worksafe PG13 standard. We have expanded on the initial forum to include an AMS system for articles, reviews and community podcasts.

The site is being ran by the former volunteer admins and moderators of a once popular 14 year old, 120k member, anime forum. We have the experience behind us in running successful and fun communities. The old site was sold and now no longer exists, so we (the volunteer staff) had no choice but to start over and create a new space for our old community.

Our site is 100% community owned and funded. It was set up with the intention of being a non-profit, forever home for all members, old and new. It belongs to our members and will never be sold. All of our admins, moderators and AMS writing and editing staff are volunteers. We are always open to new writers/podcasters who would like to join our contributor team.

Community Customisation

Our style was made by Audentio and customised by our tech admin, Shi. Logo designed by Shannon Apple.

We are currently using the AMS article system by Bob, which can be found here: http://www.sakugacity.com/index.php?ams/

We have added Vault Wiki to the site so that our members can create their own pages. Our site has its own brand of humour, so we want to embrace that and give members an outlet.

Latest reviews

Pros: Xenforo
Clean Theme
Quick loading
Professional Design and Staff
Cons: Chat takes you away from site
Should have static home page that shows both forum and articles
When first visiting the website I was caught off guard. The theme is very nice on the eye and makes you want to join it. No lack of images on the home page or for the articles. Part of the appeal of the site was how clean it was. I'm not big into this niche, so if it made me want to join, think of how it would with someone who enjoys the niche!

Looks to be well ran and hosted. I didn't encounter any errors or slow loading pages. Aside from it being somewhat new the forums are getting attention. Slowly but surely. I dug up some metrics on this site and see that it is doing fairly well on traffic. Which means SEO is being used and that the articles are unique content.

Overall a great website. It sticks to the niche it is and looks good. Best of luck to the owner!
