What’s Been Going On?

Dear Readers,

In mid-May, Anime Hajime began an unexpected and unannounced hiatus. As of this posting, we have gone silent for the better part of a month. As Editor-in-Chief, let me make one thing clear:

Anime Hajime has NOT gone offline. We are still very much here. 

But I know that is not good enough. A proper explanation is long overdue.

Let me begin by setting the record straight. When I use the word “we,” what I really mean is “I.” Currently, I run Anime Hajime by myself. Therefore, the site is affected when things get complicated in my personal life. Since 2015, I have managed to mitigate particularly busy stretches and delivered anime content consistently. 

Recently, though, I have been facing an unprecedented challenge: Fatherhood. 

I am proud to say I have been blessed with a beautiful, healthy baby boy, and I thought I had insulated the site well enough to manage parenting and content creation. 

I grossly miscalculated. 

It became abundantly clear that I would be unable to juggle both my responsibilities to my son and continue releasing posts for the site. Thus, I chose to halt all current series and cancel what I had hoped to be a new direction for Anime Hajime. 

Fortunately, Anime Hajime will return. Unfortunately, I don’t know when it will return to full force. 

I expect to release content occasionally, but returning to something more regular will take time. Until then, I can only ask for your understanding.

Anime Hajime has grown to become much larger than I ever expected, and I want to see how far it can go. 

Thank you all so much for your support, and I will be back soon.

Sincerely and with love,
