Today is Valentine’s Day, and in the grand AniTAY tradition I am reviving the Cafe once again to give everyone a chance to give shout-outs to other members of the community. Here are mine:
Raitzeno: Hah I surprised you by putting you up first. You totally didn’t see this coming. I feel like this is obvious, but I think it needs to be said that I really appreciate your work with the Discord channel. Ever since you made it, you’ve always been very responsive to fixing issues/adding things and monitoring the chat and I’m not sure if anyone has outright said it but thanks.
Cheroro, Morie, Nan and Shade: This also may seem like a weird grouping, but lately my Japanese language studies have been a very central part of my life and you have all been encouraging in different ways.
Gugsy: You’ve really taken up the mantle with projects such as the seasonal collab recently, and for better or worse have become a big part of the heart of the community. I feel like you care a lot about the community and have definitely picked up the slack from some of us this past year.
Matt, Dilkokoro, and the rest of the Taykobon staff: Thanks for your work this past year. Although our involvement in the project has more-or-less come to an end, it was a really fantastic time that was only made possible by all of you. And to Matt, thanks again for lunch back in August.
Nomadic Dec: k pop
And now it’s your turn! Let’s thank some people in the comments!
For those of you visiting for the first time (or not, I don’t know) and wondering just what exactly you’re looking at right now, here’s a document explaining our blog and wonderful community:
And be sure to check out the latest episode of our podcast, which will be posted as soon as we finish the magical spell to summon it from the depths of being accidentally deleted (no podcast for a little while, sorry folks).
