It is with mixed emotions today that I announce we will be winding down activity.
I think many of you saw this coming and to be honest, so did I. I mentioned a few months ago I was falling disillusioned with fansubbing but wanted to persevere through these feelings and get back to the hobby I dedicated hours of my time to over the past four years of my life. I started to wonder if I was ever gonna get the spark I needed to work on fansubs again. Unfortunately, I just don’t see that spark returning anytime soon, so I’m calling it quits.
On top of that, it’s no secret that our projects were not managed well and that is totally on me. I have learned through my hiatus that I’m just not cut out for this kind of thing, and that’s okay. Sorry if this sounds like I’m self-loathing. I don’t really mean for it to. I just want to publicly own up to it and admit where I went wrong and apologize for being stubborn about not being wrong.
Anyways, due to it being close to completion and it being managed by a different person, Gunma-chan releases will continue under the NovaWorks tag until Season 1 is complete. All other series have been dropped as of today and most group activity will effectively cease following Gunma-chan’s completion. This website, our Public Discord, and all of our releases will remain available for the foreseeable future.
I’m using the word “effectively” here because I wouldn’t rule out a potential NovaWorks resurrection. After all, I can’t see far into the future and for all I know, there may come a time where I’m interested enough to come back. But as I see it currently, I highly doubt it’ll happen. Not with me behind it, at least.
Regardless, I’d like to thank the many people who spent hours upon hours working with me on releases and subs for sticking with me and contributing, and I’d like to thank followers for their support. Please look forward to the last couple releases of Gunma-chan.
