๐ŸŽ† HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! ๐ŸŽ†

 

All the best for 2017! I hope you all enjoyed New Year’s Eve!

Thank you very much for continuing to read my blog- whether you started three years ago or three days ago.

I apologise for the delay in my various posts, including this one! For those who don’t follow me on Twitter and didn’t know, my main Internet went down for about 11 days so I wasn’t able to do anything beyond Twitter or simple browsing (via my mobile Internet). Naturally, this means I’m quite behind on everything– My January 2017 otome games post, 2016 digest post, “what’s in store for 2017”-type post, 2016 year-end reviews… What a start to 2017, ‘ey? ๐Ÿ˜ฃ

But enough complaining! I’ve decided to combine Issue #46 and #47 into one post. For updates pertaining to #46’s reporting period, they’ll be in the usual dark blue. For the latest updates- Issue #47- they’ll be in purple… So if you’re not interested in older news, just read the parts with purple headings!

  1. Happy belated New Year!!!! Thanks for a great year of Sunday posts!!! Since basically all the sites I’d normally get my news at are all blocked here (thanks, China…) and the internet is slow af your blog is the only way to stay updated ๐Ÿ˜‰ and it’s way more convenient anyways hehe

    Not much else to comment on other than it’s always exciting to see release dates announced. I still probably won’t get Period Cube because of the reviews from a couple of my friends but regardless, hooray for some progress lol! And of course, not at all surprised to see that Taisho x Alice localization got moved to March 2017.

    Anyways thanks as always for all your hard work!! Cheers to another great year \(^0^)/

  2. Don’t worry at all, Laramie! The wait just makes it so much better haha.
    I have no idea how you manage to do this all the time with so much information. So much respect.

Don't be shy, leave a reply!
