A.illusions is a webcomic written and illustrated by Columbia Kho. Anime Illusions was a community forum that was created back in 1998. The comic was based on a series of events that occured in 2004.
The series premiered in 2005 but suffered a series of hiatuses after Columbia was given the opportunity to work on Mango Jam: Twilight's Calling. In March 2012, A.illusions will be premiering in Oh No! Manga along with Columbia's other work, Karma.
A peaceful anime community that prides itself with its diverse, international members, Anime Illusions is an electronic BBS (aka forum) run by a group of volunteers from all over the world, keeping the community safe twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week.
However, when mysterious bugs began appearing one after another, suspicions arise that something, or perhaps someone, was actually behind it. Would anyone really care about a pop culture forum enough to want to destroy it? Rei Kuassary, one of only two Global Moderators, certainty didn't think so, but meeting a new member named "Lowlife" is making her think again.
The former administrator of Anime League, Azorite decided to merge his forum with A.I. in order to form a larger, international community. Although appearing to be a happy-go-lucky type of guy, his command is only second to that of Shijirou’s.
Shrouded in mystery, no one dares to speak in his presence, unless they are system executives. He appears to be the Dues ex Machina of the forum, swiftly dealing with any disagreements or misunderstandings.
The youngest administrator of A.I., don’t let her cute appearance fool you; she is known to drop-kick anyone who steps out of line. Deep down, she's actually a sweet girl who bullies people in order to cover up her shyness.
