Yeah, I just thought I’d post this for posterity. I forgot to do one last year, but I was never really one to celebrate holidays anyway. I hope you continue to enjoy our releases.
Not much has changed over the last two years, although our work has streamlined a bit. I’m still the sole translator of all of our current series, and I’m translating even more than I used to. Translating has taken up basically a third of my life, and I don’t see that lifestyle changing any day soon.
I want to put out a (long belated) shout to DankDoggo for designing this new site for us. I’m sorry that I never gave you the credit that’s clearly due, but you appeared and disappeared like the wind, without a trace. I never asked for such a wonderful gift, but you gave it to me. You never asked for anything in return. Had it not been for you, our site would still be the same clunky, generic-skinned site it used to be back in the day. So thank you, really. I’ll never forget you.
In any case, I’m proud with how far this group has come. We’re one of oldest groups that’s still active in the scene. The name “Kirei Cake” was never meant to be permanent back when I created the group; it was just the first two words that came to mind. I ended up sticking with it anyway, and here we are.
