Celebrating 8th Anniversary!

Posted on Updated on

EDIT: The winning numbers are 387 and 134. leohikarusora was closest to the first one with 379 and waterinegirl with 143. Thank you to everyone who participated and I loved seeing all the stories people have been reading. Funnily enough, or maybe not since we’re all here on an otome blog, I’ve actually seen quite a few of those titles!

Ha ha! This time I’ve scheduled this post ahead of time so I don’t forget it like I did last year (and had to do an embarrassing backdate). I never know what to say in these things, but here’s a HUGE thank you to everyone who has supported my blog up until now and a WARM WELCOME to all the newcomers that joined this year! I’ve always done what I do on this blog for myself, but it’s nice to connect with other people who share the same interests!

Looking back over the year, and comparing this post to my last anniversary post, it looks like I finally finished my Light Beyond translation (and then immediately started up another LN translation LOL). I’ve also opened up commissions and the interest in people for that exceeded my expectations a thousand times, so thank you all so much (๑→‿←๑).

Regarding the future of this blog, I still plan on continuing with it and heading wherever my interests take me (as long as it’s otome-related)! I’m trying hard to make my way back to otome games and am in the middle of endless Pio Fiore, which… just got localized. AKSYS STOP TARGETING ME LIKE THIS. Honest to gods, every single game I want to play they nab for localization. And you’d think I’d be like “Okay, I won’t blog about it then…” but I blog about these games for my own memory and practice!!

The main reason for my slow playing speed is because I’ve got other personal projects going on. It’s my goal to finish writing my WIP novel by the end of next year, so I’ve been stretching my time between that, this blog, and my full-time job. I also finished my part in a game project that I was working on with some friends, so woohoo!

Anyway, thanks again to everyone who has left a comment on this blog, dropped by for a view, or are just a long-standing lurker. I hope next year brings more games onto this blog LOL. Incidentally, I’ll be hosting a giveaway this year since I’m much more prepared.
