Hi there guys. Major announcement (obviously).
Firstly, I’m really sorry, I was out of commission for about a week or so. It’s my bad, and I feel absolutely terrible about it. Let me explain what happened.
I’ll start by reiterating that I really do love spreading the joy of lightening up someone’s day with a new chapter from an awesome series.
But due to a certain situation on my side (I’m not sure if I’m allowed to reveal it yet or not), I am going to have to give up this site, because I can no longer do anything that might become a legal liability. This past week was me trying really hard to make it work, and then me being depressed when nothing worked. The only way I would be able to continue is if the authors gave me permission, but upon contacting them, all of them said their contracts with their Japanese publishers included all the rights for foreign translations (even Secret Org, whose publication isn’t even publicly announced yet), so they couldn’t say yes.
Rejection after rejection after rejection. Boy was I depressed.
It makes it worse that I’d only just recently started the new series, started looking into the Twitch, started Discord, started Patreon. It kinda felt like this is where things are going to take off or something, and then BAM.
I kept thinking that I’ll tell you guys tomorrow, tomorrow, tomorrow, until somewhere along the way it became that I have to apologize for being MIA, and the guilt just made me more and more fearful. I couldn’t even bring myself to read those @’s that you guys were awesome enough to send me on Discord (I am really touched for them, but I’m so sorry). But you wonderful people have a right to closure, and I really don’t want to ghost on you guys (again), so I’ve gathered myself back together, and here we are.
So, this is what’s going to happen from here on.
I’m going to do 1 more chapter of OreMegane and MotoKimama, just to get them to a nice, round 10 chapters total. I’ll also do just 1 more chapter of Secret Org to finish off the prologue.
Releases will be today, tomorrow, then day after. 10am GMT+8, as usual.
After that, I welcome anyone to pick up any of the projects I was working on. That includes Shadows. (Though hold off on that until I confirm that I’m dropping it first. I’ll update y’all when I know for sure. Send me an email if you want to pick any of them up.)
Of course, I will also be shutting down my Patreon (gotta make sure to do it before the next billing). Send me an email if you want a refund, I’ll understand.
Thank you guys for being on this wonderful ride together. We might see each other again at a later date, depending on how the situation on my side turns out. Until then, stay in the shadows. All hail!
