Howdy! If you’re here, one of two things happened.
Either you follow me on social media or my blog and found this new post, or you’re an anime fan watching Occultic;Nine, and saw the domain
kirikiribasara.com in episode one and tried typing it into a web browser. That domain — for now — redirects to here.
Here begins the lesson:
If you’re ever using a domain name in a movie, or a tv show, or in a presentation — any form, really — do yourself a favor and make sure you buy the domain before you go live.
It’ll cost you like $12, tops. If your show flops, no big deal. You don’t need to renew it for a subsequent year. But if it takes off — or even if someone pulls up the domain just right after airtime, it’s a great tool to engage your users.
Or, you could not buy it, and some rando on the internet (hi there) can scoop the domain up for $12 on Google Domains. Or cheaper if I wanted to go elsewhere.
Also, if you would like to start your own affiliate blog (like the domain was used for in the anime), I’d suggest building at WordPress.com!
As an aside, I’m not really looking to sell the domain, I just think it’s funny, but if anyone does desperately want the domain to run some sort of fan-forum or if the show’s producers are interested, feel free to drop me a line — the contact form on this site should work, and I’m fairly easy to reach on social media. 🙂

Nice one man, yeah it’s a shame they didn’t grab it before going live with the show.
Props to you bro
was actually hoping for some sort of ARG, but ah well, suppose the developers did not have that in mind
That would have been sweet. Kinda sad it didn’t happen. 😦

I dearly hope somebody takes attoch.net from whichever goblin currently owns it
maybe somebody could make a cool forum like mebious.co.uk or something
just as long as it doesn’t go to that other shitty “atchan” site
