AKB48 Wallpaper

If it seems a little slow these days, here’s why

Summer is over. Back to real life!  Let me explain.

Yuki has gone back to school.

Reika has also gone back to school.

I (Jerry) have found a new job after being unemployed for five months.  I’m already sad because I won’t be able to watch the Janken Tournament live (T-T)

Summer was fun, and we had lots of free time.  Things change.  If it seems relatively quiet around the site these days, now you know why.

The site will still be updated, but perhaps just not at the pace that is has usually been.

So, cheers for now.  Despite the semester starting, Yuki tells me that he’s been stepping up his translating game, so maybe we’ll have more from him.

I’ll end this post by sharing our favorite summer song:

Are your summers coming to an end as well?

Sometimes editor. Sometimes translator. Mostly a proofreader. I like Japan and things.

    You know, I just feel lucky and blessed that you guys post anything at all on here. Your site I check every single day, sometimes two times a day, and I’m always impressed with the content you find to put on here. Thank you so much for ANY post you decide to put up in the future, and for all the stuff you’ve given me in the past. You’ve allowed me to grow my AKB fandom exponentially. Also, take your time, post when you want, and for those of you going back to school, GANBATTE! And for those of you going to work, Kawaiso! Lol.
    Love you all.

    • Thanks! And, I don’t feel kawaiso, but thanks for the sentiment 😀 I’m becoming a productive member of society again!

    My summer ended one month ago, so yeah, I know that feel bro.

    Anyways, I’m always grateful and I admire what you guys have done in this site, I really appreciate it.
    Even though I’m studying japanese, there is a lot of stuff that I just can not understand, so akbzine is a big plus for me.

    Of course that I would like to read new stuff daily xD but I understand the situation. This site is the most important of the less important things, so it’s okay, keep it up… you guys will see me here even though the updates don’t come too frequently =D

    Cheers from a mexican fan!!

    • Good luck with your Japanese studies! It’s my favorite language 😀 And thanks always for stopping by!
