366 days ago, John Sato was born, albeit under a different name. It was an impulsive decision, starting a blog, but also a calculated one. I had those grandiose dreams of becoming an internet celebrity, garnering hundreds of comments every day and becoming a prolific voice in every industry I touched. . .and I knew those were just dreams. I was fully aware of the fact that I would get few-to-no commenters, little exposure, would make posts I'd be less than happy with, and stumble along the way. That being the case, when I started I set myself a few reasonably lofty goals. I wanted to review my favorite anime series like Mushishi and Kin's Journey. I wanted to review my favorite video games, like Jazz Jackrabbit 2. I wanted to articulate my views on why I feel video games are an art form. And finally, I wanted to have discussions about various aspects of games, anime, and as time went on even blogging.
As of today, I've accomplished each of those goals, to an extent I can be satisfied with. In other words, I've completed what I originally set out to do when I started this blog. It's time to go.
