There’s a lot of cleaning up to do around here, so please bear with the mess as things are straightened out and updated. I got so used to counting down to the release of Shichinin that I’d feel odd not changing a number at the bottom of the post here every day, so here’s the next subject of my merciless reverse enumeration:
Comiket 68 Countdown: SIX DAYS
I’ll be filling in on missed scoops as I gather the requisite items and info; expect a fairly high level of posting activity for the next few days as things get sorted out. I’ll also be trying to post a lot more in the forums, hint hint. Ah, it’s good to be back.
