An announcement regarding the future of the blog

Some of you already know this, but in 1 week I'm going to be moving to Japan and starting a new job. While it's exciting, the unfortunate reality is that I'm going to have to cut back on the time I dedicate to Symphogear.

Having significantly less free time and a completely different schedule means that I won't be able to post as frequently and keep you guys updated as much as I have. It also means that the manga translation project is...delayed indefinitely. I haven't even bought volume 3 yet and I won't have access to a scanner in Japan unless I buy one (which I have to work into my budget). Of course, I will keep watching the episodes and trying to post things when I can. Being in Japan means I will have access to new magazines and merchandise quicker than before, which is awesome. I will continue to work on the keyword translations, especially the new ones from G, and will continue to work on the SymphoSubs project (though I doubt I will be able to release them as quick as I did this week).

To be honest I really won't know how much this move will impact my activities until I'm actually there and settled in, which may take awhile. Just know that my vigor and passion for Symphogear hasn't died and at some point I will return full force. But for the foreseeable future things will slow down and you might not hear from me as much. If you'd like to make a contribution to the blog in my absence, feel free to send me an email at and I will post it up.

Otherwise I highly recommend you follow the pheonixgear tumblr and the megadethparty tumblr, as they are some of the more dedicated and resourceful fans I know.

Thanks for all your support up until now, and your continued support in the future.


  1. You will be missed.

  2. I wish you luck with everything in Japan and would like to thank you for everything you've done and still doing.
