Founder and Owner
The Front Line Anime Network is an umbrella title incorporating the pillars of the Coterie Network and Front Line Anime. Here you can find more information on our Network's history, purpose, operations, and more. For more details, please see our Business Constitution -- also our Terms of Service.
We, the Front Line Anime Network, are an organization founded on the inspiration to help bring and promote the circulation of Japan's Akiba-kei with those who share a passion for our more animated side of life – the Otaku coterie! No, we don't publish anime directly, instead, we try to patchwork an interconnecting consortium of Japanese Galas and Comicon conventions and expos to better bring you anime clips and episodes; cosplay performances, panels, and interviews; Japan news and event reviews; live expo feeds, and more.
History & Startup
Refined since its humble inception in 2004 as a past-time website featuring a rudiment collection of anime wallpapers operating on a budget of $40 a year by our founding Principal Director in high school, the Front Line Anime Network has grown to become a dominant actor among anime and Japan related conventions in the Midwest, spending $40,000 in equipment upgrades in 2019 with a budget of $400,000. In our early history as Front Line Anime, the website began to become a more ambitious project known as Front Line Anime & Gaming in 2006 when it featured both anime and gaming content, along with smaller segments on movies and other small categories and ran until 2010 before officially shutting down. However, this venture would return to reinstate itself again under our Principal Director in 2016 as just Front Line Anime and with the goal of expanding its original founding infrastructure and objective.
A Growing Profession
In 2017, Front Line Anime became an official business that adopted the Network locution as we began associations with other businesses and venues and tested our live platform. 2018 saw physical and limited office openings in Japan and America and the officiating of multiple media rights among conventions in the Midwest. To contrast the distinguishing aspect between our anime and live platforms, the Coterie Network was identified in 2020 as the division for live media while Front Line Anime (FLAnime) remained the platform for anime-themed content. Together, they are the two pillars that stand to define what is known as the Front Line Anime Network. While the Coterie has been closed through the COVID pandemic, 2021 has introduced FLAnime into the efforts of anime remastering.
It's more than just a few words! We post full point-of-view articles up to five document pages long to give some of the best insight into the events that we attend. Additionally, we conduct vendor and guest interviews to draft metrics to help give various levels of feedback to improve continuance and satisfaction for both the event and guest.

Our camera rig enables us to capture content at up to 400mbps 5K for the clearest playback into any event. Together, with our 108 megapixels cinema-themed stills, we aim to capture that special vibe in a way that 1,000 words couldn't, from the cosplay and competitions, celebrity panels, guest interviews, to the event ambiance in itself.
||| Equipment ||| Process ||| Rendering |||
We envisage ultra-high-definition as the new trend for media. Beyond UHD coverage by the Coterie Network, Front Line Anime utilizes professional tools to reimagine original high-definition content into Ultra HD 4K and 8K for openings, endings, and trailers.

Anime HUB Pages
We are working to consolidate anime HUB pages where viewers can find information on a specific title. We plan to offer custom storyboard slide presentations, social-media connections, sourced episodic content, actor information, and details on manga and game variants.

The Coterie Network badge is designed to represent the weaving of American and Japanese culture. The badge shows Japanese elements over a Rising Sun which sets above an outline of the United States with Japan on the east coast. The badge has a red tint on the east to represent a rising sun and the eastern culture of japan that contrasts a blue tent to represent the setting sun and western culture of America. A weaving texture represents the interconnection of both cultures.
The //FLAnime// badge is designed to honor the traditional foundation and mission of our Coterie - Akihabara. Juxtapositioned to the right of our name is the word Akiba which is shorthand for Akihabara. Akiba gives identity to the city district covered in foreign characters with people walking the streets. At the foot of the walking path is the script for Akiba-Kei meaning Akihabara style. The blue background is designed to reflect the westernization of this culture.
