This day 2 years ago is when Yuri-ism debuted to the world. We’ve come a long way since then, as we’re now also celebrating the 250th release on this blog as well. Will we make it to release #1000!?!?
I want to personally thank all the readers for helping us get this far. Two years worth of yuri may have passed, but we’re still just as ambitious as we were when we first started. From day one, I have always wanted this group to be for people who truly loved yuri and wanted to give back to the community. Sometimes scanlation can be stressful, but I have never once considered this work, it’s always been fun and entertaining to me. To see others share my vision and support us has been amazing.
How much has Yuri-ism grown? When we first started it was just me (Chansu) and Nandeyanen. We’ve slowly added a few more staff members, but we’ve always stayed a relatively small group. These people have been not only my colleagues but my friends as well. How much has the site grown? Exponentially, if you’re curious to see how the number of page views has grown since the start, you can click here. The reader also receives over a quarter million pageviews a month now as well. Maybe we’re doing something right, or maybe yuri really is just becoming that popular. The months before Yuri-ism started felt like a dark age to me. I actually had planned to start Yuri-ism sooner than we actually did, but we felt there may not be enough yuri to work on to justify a full time blog. The amount of yuri that was scanned 2 to 3 years ago was very minimal. Are we entering the golden age of yuri? Or has the best yet to come?
We did a survey not too awfully long ago, so I won’t do another one so soon. I also won’t do another batch torrent until release #300. But I know people like getting the chance to tell me what’s on their mind, tell me what their favorite release was, or the one they thought was complete shit. Or maybe you just want to ask or say something completely weird. Anyway, you can use this input box to send me any feedback or stuff you want to say to me and the rest of the staff. I’ll respond to the important and funny ones publicly later.
