Our deepest apology for the past week + 3 days

|This post is written by Saladine|

Have you notice the lack of posting rate for the past week? I should explain. During that time, Albertus and I have a little curriculum called Diplomacy in Practice. Its sort of a UN simulation, a Model of United Nation (MUN), where we become a delegate to represent our countries interest with a designated topic. Since the preparation for the simulation needs a tad research and practicing our speaking English, we have not had the time to continue our blog, since the pressure is rather big with our grade at stake. With that, we hope our dear reader would forgive us for our lack of new threads. After this post, our posting rate would come back to normal, and at Friday my friend Albertus will have a smashing thread to be presented. Look forward to it!

Again, we are terribly sorry for this event to turn out such way. We will maintain our level of productivity after this post.

A Tiny Disaster Out of Nowhere, and A Resignation of Some Sort

|This post is written by Gilimandra|

If you’ve been lurking around the blog in the past two days or so, you’d probably noticed that a number of pictures are missing from some articles. We’ve looked into them and it turned out that pictures that have been uploaded to the authors’ facebook accounts, and are linked straight to the articles, are the ones that are gone. It’d take some time but we’ll definitely fix them as soon as possible.

On an unrelated note, some of you might have noticed that I’ve not written anything in the past two weeks. Well to be honest many real life businesses suddenly need to be taken care of so I decided to be inactive for an unspecified period of time. I might write something again in the future, but for now I simply don’t have the time to do so. Rest assured though, Saladine will cover my part about anime and manga reviews, and he’ll do them satisfyingly as he has always done. Well simply put, it’s goodbye for me folks, see you again sometime!
