Site Revival Update: The site is being rebuilt from scratch. I'm currently getting the main system in place and then I'll start restoring all of the old wallpapers. Also trying to raise the funds for some plugins I need. It's taking longer than I'd like, but there should be a usable site up soon.
Since there is apparently a lot of interest, Anime Themes will be making a triumphant return to the internet. It will take a few days to get it up and running, and then start adding new wallpapers and themes. I will also be setting up a way for users to donate to server costs, so the site can stay online this time. Stay tuned!
After 12 long years, Anime Themes is shutting down. It's getting lots of visits, but mostly from bots and spammers. There has been no user interaction or commenting, or even uploads, in such a long time. In the last 3 months, it has made $0.46 from ads. This site is funded solely out-of-pocket, by me, and I simply have no more money. Well, hosting is due, and I'm broke, so the site will be shutting down in the next 24 hours, It will not be returning, as it has in the post. Th...ank you to those few people who have stuck around and used the site. There are a billion other sites out there for with anime wallpapers. Not nearly as nice as mine, but still, you'll find what you want with a quick Google search. I will likely still be doing plenty online, with an upcoming blog, and a camera on the way to get back into photography, so you can check me out on ZhonoMedia.com when I get it back up and running. See you, people.
P.S. A few people have asked if I will sell the site, and the answer is simple; yes. Make an offer via Facebook comments or private message. Sale will include the entire Anime Themes site and all of it's content. It will NOT include vbulletin(which was never used anyway, and has no content). What you will receive is located at http://anime-asylum.com/themes/
We're expanding! Keep a lookout in the coming weeks and you'll see many changes to the site. New forums, social networking features, more stuff for members to do on the site, possibly chatrooms(remember chatrooms? They're still a thing!), and much more. Since the day I started the site in 2002, I've never stopped working on it, and I won't be stopping any time soon. So keep watching!

So as you may or may not know, Anime Themes is part of the Zhono Media Network. Every site I've ever run has been part of that network, as Zhono Media is the name I use for my "business", if you can call it a business. Well soon Zhono Media will have a new main site for the network itself, including an actual social network component. I haven't nailed down exactly WHAT this site will be yet, but it will (hopefully) be BIG. Very big. Social network, large forum, giant image galleries, and news articles on topics from anime/manga, to scifi shows and movies, to web design. Areas for artists to display, discuss and promote their work, maybe even sell their stuff. I'm envisioning future art contests, with cool prizes, judged by users. And many other things, too numerous to list. I'm still in early development, but keep watching here for news.
Registering with your Facebook account has been disable, as it was causing many users trouble. If you registered with Facebook, don't worry. Your username and password are still the same, and will work just fine. You can also still like and share images on Facebook. Just no more auto-login.
Many new features are coming soon! Stay tuned.
Anime-Themes.Net is back up and ready for action! No data has been lost. Hopefully this time I can keep the site up. May have to setup a donation system to help pay for server costs. Starting tomorrow I will be working on adding a user forum and several other new features, so keep checking back often, and tell your friends.
The new host was crap and went down. Site is being uploaded to the new host now. There's a LOT of data, so it'll take a few hours before the site comes back online. Thanks for your patience.
