I have an announcement to make regarding the future of this site and I’m sure for some of you it won’t really come as a big surprise.
This fan blog has always been something very personal. I never tried being “professional”, as there are other sites doing a better job at that. I would have failed anyway. I’m a very emotional person when it comes to things I love and I can’t hold back with my personal opinions. So I simply shared what I loved, enjoyed reblogging the works of others who love the same thing and threw tantrums whenever I felt like it. But this happened more and more frequently.
Frankly, I’m disgusted at the direction this series is heading towards since Y5. The way the western fans get treated (which isn’t new, but that only makes it worse). The ignorance. What they did to Majima (in my eyes). It was a slow, but constant process. What was supposed to be fun, made me bitter, cynical, disappointed over and over again. And I’m not the kind of person who can simply ignore these facts for the sake of the aspects I still love.
Some time ago I started playing other games again, something I hadn’t been able to do for a long time, because I was so focused on rgg. It made me realize that the series hadn’t been fun for me anymore in ages, how much I had missed out on. That something was going very, very wrong. How exhausted I had become.
I cannot detach myself from this feeling, take it lightly and continue running this blog like nothing had happened, just so my followers will be entertained. I’m not pro enough for that, just some random, passionate fan.
As of now, I’m not even angry or disappointed anymore. I simply stopped caring altogether. I got all I need, which is Majima in my imagination and memories. A safe place Team RGG and SEGA can’t touch or conquer.
So what does this exactly mean for this blog?
I’m not going to close it. I think it’s a great archive for all rgg and Majima fans. And I’m still gonna answer questions, publish submissions and reblog posts from time to time. But I won’t put any work into it anymore and come up with my own content, follow the news closely, hunt for hours and hours for new material like I used to do.
I hope at least some of you will understand.
Thank you so much for your support!
