Hello there, Popfan here.
It’s been quite a while since the last blog post, hasn’t it? I don’t blame you for thinking I abandoned the blog in favor of Twitter. Since this blog is exclusively for major announcements, of which there haven’t been any in a long while (in no small part due to my struggles with mental health), there just wasn’t much reason to use it.
As you may or may not have been aware of, Team Gaijin Alex has dwindled down to just me. Last February, I contacted both Spaztique and FullHitPoints, and both agreed that they hadn’t had any noteworthy involvement or association with the team for years now. Nevertheless, I’m still thankful to them for what they did to help me grow as a person and develop my skills, and I wish them all the best.
Now, for the main reason why I’m writing this blog post… I want to talk about MajiKana. The last update regarding the game dates back all the way to May 2016, where Michirin announced that its release would be delayed until further notice. While that still holds true, the truth of the matter is that development has been put on hold entirely. Michirin still has plans to revive and release the game sometime in the future, but she will be taking on the project by herself, without the help of any members of Team Gaijin Alex, current or former. A console port is no longer in the cards, either, as Super Fighter Team has pulled out of the publishing business as of November 2019.
That said, do consider giving Michirin your support. Check out her YouTube channel here, her itch.io page here, and her Bandcamp page here.
As for my personal projects… the second entry to the Mukai Project is still in the works, but due to a combination of mental health problems, college, and being stuck waiting for the latest GMS2 update to come out of its beta phase, I haven’t really been able to make any progress on it whatsoever. I do, however, have a new music album in the works, which I hope to release sometime this year, but the sooner I can, the better. I’m going to make it my full-time focus after exams are done and over with, but it’ll still be out when it’s out.
I hope you’ll look forward to it! In the meantime, if you want to support me, do please consider purchasing my other album, Proto-Unreality Replication ~Len’en Kai Mugenri~. Though if you’ve already purchased it before, then thank you very much for your patronage. Please be responsible with your money and don’t actually buy it twice.
That about wraps it up. Thank you for your patience and support!
