Anime Blips closes

Anime Blips, the DailyRadar anime aggregator, has closed. Though it was not without its detractors – Zaitcev decried it as no better than a spam site – other blogs (among them RabbitPoets and ZoneOtaku) welcomed the attention it offered.

Visitors to Anime Blips were greeted with a short message:

Thank you for your interest, but the website you are trying to visit is no longer being supported.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank our bloggers, visitors, and advertisers who have supported our sites.

As of press time, the AnimeBlips twitter account was still active, though a slew of its sister sites had not fared so well.

  1. No indication as to why? Huh.

  2. That’s a shame. Some of my visits come from that site. Oh well, as long as Anime Nano is still around…

  3. A loss of Blips is a win for Anime Nano. They likely had someone who lost interest or wasn’t satisfied.

  4. Ouch, I had made an account there, but never posted any content. I mainly rely on Animenano. Sad to see such a large site go down though..

  5. I JUST found out about that site a couple months ago. ;_; I was getting a ton of hits from there for my Black Rock Shooter Review.

  6. Looks like Future Publishing decided to abandon the Blips niche aggregator platform and API. If anyone is looking for an alternative outside of Nano and the Antenna, Anime Shinbun is worth a look.
