English version of 90s Japanese message board Ayashii-World

Ayashii-World was the first Japanese message board released in 1995 it was ran by a guy who went by the name Shiba until it was shutdown around 1998 and after that it just became a collection of clone websites.

Ayashii-World is the grandfather of chan culture and one of the grandfathers of internet culture in general. Without sites like Ayashii-World Amezou and 2channel we wouldn’t have a lot of the internet culture we have today.

Below is a new English version of Ayashii-World that has been created check it out.

Embed looks like Japanese to me
