An Important Announcement

As of February 4th, http://daiyamanga.wordpress.com/ will no longer redirect to https://daiyamanga.com/.

Many of you were so kind to follow me in my first two years, when I was hosted by WordPress.com. After I switched to being self-hosted (i.e. a WordPress.org site), I purchased the site redirection feature to automatically send visitors from http://daiyamanga.wordpress.com/ to the new site’s URL (https://daiyamanga.com). But I have chosen not to renew.

At the time Daiyamanga v2 launched, I did follow instructions to import all my dear followers, but I know many of you can attest to issues with WordPress’ Reader randomly deleting or hiding blogs.

If you would like to continue to follow Daiyamanga on WordPress, please check your followed sites list. If you want to manage your followed sites, please go here for instructions, which also shows the method for adding any site manually. Feel free to delete http://daiyamanga.wordpress.com/ from your list, but I hope that you re-follow! Otherwise, please use the Follow me on WordPress link to the right (on desktop) or at the bottom of the page (on mobile).

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask. This post will remain stickied to the top of my homepage for approximately two weeks.

As always, thank you for following and supporting Daiyamanga!

Living Nervously

Sailor Moon Kanzenban 1

So, anybody remember this announcement?

Sailor Moon Kodansha 1“Hooray!” the anime community cheered. “A major title that didn’t even use the characters’ real names is being rescued! I can retire my old Americanized, error-filled Tokyopop versions!”

Yes, one of the features Kodansha Comics USA touted when they rescued the Sailor Moon manga was “an entirely new, incredibly accurate translation”. Awesome, right?

Well…
