Welcome to my anime cel and sketch gallery!

A breif history:

Anime Chaos was originally started in about 1994, however; it was under a different name back then. All we did was sell comic books, Star Wars toys, Magic cards, and the like at local comic shows and small conventions in the NW Indiana region.

Around late 1996 we slowly got out of comic books but retained a large growing interest in anime, and my personal interest in animation cel collecting. In about early 1997 we officially changed our name to "Anime Chaos" and started a small Geocites freebie website selling anime cels. It grew, and did so pretty fast.

1999 we finally registered "animechaos.com" on the web and made a whole new website that specialized in the retail of anime cels. Our fist official AC website looked like a urine stain.....it was bad. Hard on the eyes, not to easy to navigate, but it still did very well. We went through a few site redesigns. There was the techy look, and our final cel retail version of the site that used both shown in the old school banners at the bottom of this page.

We sold anime cels primarily until 2002. In december of that year we decided to try out a deputy service. One that could bid on japanese auctions sites and import them for customers. You can import just about anything on Yahoo! Japan Auctions; DVDs, toys, games, clothes, dolls, cards, etc. The "Anime Chaos Deputy Service" as it was known then grew faster than we ever thought. So much so, that we had to break away the deputy service from Anime Chaos into its own brand; Shopping Mall Japan.

Shoppingmalljapan.com was founded in July of 2004 and took the full attention of the AC team. Also, with most new anime being produced with CG and no longer cels, it was getting harder and harder to come up with good new stock for AC's retail cel sales. So about the same time, nearly coinciding with the launch of SMJ, the original AC retail site closed up shop.

At the end of Anime Chaos's retail sales days we're proud to say that many of our customers regarded us as the biggest and best cel shop online. And once again I'd like to thank all our old customers for making us the most popular online cel shop for its time. Even so, many of our old AC customers are still with us bidding and shopping with SMJ.....which is now the biggest and best Japanese shopping service out there...regardless of what others may claim.

After AC was completely dormant from 2004 to 2006, I decided to give some kind of rebirth to it. A retail site we simply don't have the time for, but the one thing we do make time for is watching some anime. Thus we changed AC to an Anime Review site, but sadly it turns out I didn't have time for that either.

Nearly 5 years later I decided to make it my personal anime art gallery. Will do my best to keep it updated regularly as during this entire time, I still continued to collect cels and sketches.
