The Nyanko Chronicle Special Report:
A Time for Sudden Changes...

Minna-sama,

I'm here writing this report to inform you that I've come down with a sudden decision since May 1st. Thought things through since the sudden events that unfolded in mid-February has greatly affected my life. It is with all regret to inform that I've decided to renounce my anime life for good. A permanent retirement.

I've had my many reasons for thing this sudden action...

Lately, I've lost great interest on watching new anime shows or trying to keep up with the old ones. However, I still love a couple of anime series such as Cardcaptor Sakura or Tsubasa. Also, when I went to MegaCon on March 1st, I felt that I've lost my enthusiasm to enjoy an anime convention. I didn't even bought a single thing at the Dealer's Room. Not sure if I want to go to JACON at the end of this month, even though it's the final year they're hosting the con. Anyway, it's been decided without any thought back that once the manga series of Tsubasa and xxxHOLiC comes to a complete end... that's where my anime life comes to an end.

The same thing goes with the online life. I've been spending less time and also lost great interest in talking in there.

I know that some of you are shocked to read this report, but the thing is that I've been growing up. I've decided to settle my life and to move forward. I still like anime and love being an otaku, but there are times that some of these things must come to an end and I believe my time will come once TRC and HOLiC is finished. This might be my final year being as an otaku.

One more thing... there's a high possibility that I'm closing down "The Nyanko Chronicles" - for good.

This doesn't mean that I will leave all of you just because you're still in like of anime or manga. I really care for most of you as friends outside of the anime world. We share many other things in life besides anime and I know that some of you are really busy with your school duites or work. It's all right. I enjoyed my time being an otaku.

Thank you for your understanding, minna-sama.

"With all love and hope, always!"

Wow. Well, hey, don't delete your LJ. You might want it again someday. And if nothing else, it might be nice to come back to for the memories.

Will definitely see you around, though~

Hey there,

I feel sorry that you are leaving the anime fandom after TRC and xxxholic ends, but it's your decision and I will respect it. I truly hope that you did not fall into deep depression after "that", but as one of the symptoms of depression is losing something you truly loved, I am worried for you, as I have always been.

Best wishes and good luck in the future. Believe in me who believes in you.^^

I'm sorry for what has happened to you, and though I'm sad to see you leave (we haven't talked that much, but I still regard you as a friend, anyway), I hope you will come back one day and still keep in touch with us the way you used to be.

Yeah, and I agree - don't delete your LJ. You might want to come back to it one day, and maybe at that time we'll still be here. You're welcome to drop by any time you want to. :D

It won't be the end of the world - keep on believing, as you always do. :D As Sakura has said, "It'll definitely be alright."

eh... so desu ne...

Well, I don't really know what happened but I respect your decision to leave the anime fandom. ^_^ Though I also felt that before. When I was busy with stuff I wasn't able to watch any new anime and I also stopped buying anime stuff, because I thought that some things are more important than anime. And then... I dunno. I just found out I can't really get it away from my system. It had been a part of me. I eventually came back to the fandom, and now I enjoy watching new titles, too.

So I agree with them... don't delete your journal. ^_^

Well, good luck with your life and take care. Have fun! That's the most important thing. ^_^

I am not aware of whatever it is that happened to you lately in real life, but I can't help being sad hearing about your definitive retirement :(
I'm quite aware that RL comes first, always and definitely, and that if your liking for anime/manga has gone down, it's not like you can force yourself to keep on following something you've lost interest for...but I have to confess I have a hard time understanding, and I'm not talking about your particular case, but about all the fans I've seen retiring up until now: watching an anime on your PC is the same and as time consuming as watching series or whatever other program on your TV, and reading chapters scans is the same as any other people would read whatever book or comics too. This is part of 'real life' too!
Furthermore, you are not very active in the sens, as far as I know, that you don't take care of some groups or communities, you don't really make any digital works either nor do mass sharing of scans that would cost time and money to do...etc...: to pu it simply you aren't really spending your nights and days here ^^;; Will cutting off this little link you still have with friends online really drastically change anything for you in Real Life? Internet is now part of almost everyone's everyday lives, it's not like you are going to thrown away your PC and cut off your internet connection...so I will agree with everyone else and tell you not to erase your LJ, you might surprisingly want to come back some day.

I know I *complained* a lot above but this is your choice, and I'm sure this is not something you did without thinking it throughly before, so you have my best wishes and good continuation to you with your life from now on ^____^
I hope our paths will cross again in the future and be sure to come back anytime you want!
