I've been curious about this for a while. NB and *** have the same layout and overall forum setup. *** also has a prominent link to NB on the main forum page. What is their relationship? Are they owned by the same person? If so, what's the point of having separate sites? A more general "animebase" type site would likely be more popular and longer lasting (for example, this site will probably become a lot less active once Naruto ends). Why split the community into two groups?
