    You minimalistic being. Just because the main functionality where you see novels get updated exist you lazily conclude that both are the same. Well in a sense they do since they're both NU.

    Weird seeing Konjiki no Moji Tsukai. I remember checking the sites directly every day to see if there was an update. I think rise of the shield hero was close to finishing before konjiki was at that point.

    Your sister is still Tony's favorite child. Even though it's almost @NUF's birthday, NU is still taking the spotlight. (இ﹏இ`。) *pats @NUF 2nd Anniversary*

    good old time. no drama, f5 sect glory days, no trash content. tho I'm not here at the time since I only lurk on sky's, yorai's and baka tsuki. the only problem at that time was only yen press, now there's a lot of the translation gone and a new one comes.

    How come the oldest release on the old NU is from 2015 and in the current version it's from 2001? Did NU travel back in time?:aww:

    Back then i was used to scavenge for novels.
    It was fun hoping from one website to another.
    Ah! Good old days. I stopped after I starred using NU...
    I found NU loong before i registered but didn't bother to sign up. Didn't appeal to me much at first.:blobpeek::blobpeek::blobpeek:
    Sowwy.

    A small step for Tony, but a giant leap for loners.
