Happy New Year everyone! I’m proud to report that the Winter Festival was a big success! Not that there weren’t areas for improvement, but I am so happy with each team’s dedication over the 17-day event. Wrapping up this festival, we’ve recorded a special edition of The Monthly Terra featuring representatives from three of the four Winter Festival teams and organiser Hardscope! We then go over all of the events that took place in the festival in a laid-back radio show. I promise the audio levels are better this time, I even bought a mic stand! For those who missed the festival, this video should be a fun way to peek into everything that came of it. Or if you don’t wanna listen to a 2-hour talk show, The General Hub Topic lists everything that happened as well!
From me to everyone who particiapted, thank you for making Kazamatsuri’s first Winter Festival such a success. I’ve already started planning for next year’s festival, but if you’d like to be part of the organisation team for that event, just let me know and I’ll get back to you! I want this to be an event driven by community members, so don’t be shy about applying.
With that done, the Little Busters Bookclub can resume! As outlined here, we are currently preparing for the After-Refrain Podcast which will be taking place either next weekend or the one after. But after that we’ll be jumping straight into Saya Route! As of now the forum focus is currently spread between the "Bokura" no Asa topic, the Kud topic, the LB Spoilers General topic, and the Saya topic. There’s a lot of broad content we’ll be covering in the After-Refrain Podcast, but if you just wanna focus on the routes, feel free to focus your efforts on posting in the Saya topic.
We’ve also announced the return of our Sharing Circles, with new sessions happening this weekend! This time we’re focusing on the topic of ‘relationships’; how they effect you, what you want from relationships, stuff like that. If it’s something you’d like to be a part of, to get to know your fellow Kaza members in a more personal setting, be sure to vote on the times you’re available and I’ll slot you into the groups! Should be a really valuable experience for some of us.
Other than that, please look forward to many more Bookclubs and community events to come in the future! It’s the start of a new dawn for the Kazamatsuri community, and I couldn’t be prouder of you all. Let’s make 2019 our best year yet!
