Today marks exactly one year since I created this blog and posted my very first translation! It’s been an amazing year and I can’t even begin to express how happy it’s made me to see this blog grow and know people really enjoy what I do. I never dreamed I’d get such a large, positive response so I’m really, truly grateful to you all! Looking back it’s hard to believe that it’s gone from just 25 views in my first month to well over ten thousand this past month. Even if you’ve never commented or requested a song, just knowing you visited and read something means a lot to me, so thank you!
Writing this blog has had such a positive impact on my Japanese and I feel like I’ve progressed to a whole different level than I was when I first started, which is great because it means I can do more, better quality translations for everyone. I’d wanted to make a blog like this for a long time, so finally being able to take initiative and fill what I felt was a void in the community and help share the awesomeness of the many less well-known and underrepresented bands out there has made me very happy! (^_^)
Also, special thanks to yukki for providing the impetus to create this blog and giving such helpful guidance with my early translations, as well as adenade and soltama for choosing my work to make such beautiful subbed videos. As always your efforts are greatly appreciated!
