Administrators
Karasu

Karasu joined Maplemation in 2011 for the “Maple,” and has since then congregated with individuals who joined for the “mation.” For the longest time, nobody knew he was a moderator because people rarely find this staff page. Now it is too late. He is the current owner of the “Maple” and the “mation.”

Aquila

Aquila started animating Touhou sprites in late 2010 and enjoyed it. Upon joining her first animating community in early 2014 she quickly grasped Maple animating and came to love it. Before a year even passed she was accepted into the Animation Team Jury. She has a soft spot for animation synced to music.

Delacroix

Delacroix hailed from several different sprite animation communities before finally setting his foot firmly in the Maple Community, and has acquired unique insight on animation because of his exposure to a wide variety of content. Despite his current focus being set to improving his artistic abilities, the experience and knowledge he has gained over the years is still remarkable.

We will always love and support him with loyalty and blood.

Design & Art Team Leader
Kenny

He also likes traps.
