While I mostly help build and maintain the Yatta-Tachi website, I also contribute to editing duties and occasionally write an article or two. I’m a self-proclaimed geek in many different ways, and am happy I can bring that devotion to this website!

Assistant Editor

Astra Wijaya (Detrop)

Yatta-Tachi Detrop

I am a Chocobo mug who loves puns and is driven by the thirst for nostalgia. You will usually find me writing about days past like an old person. Other than that, I usually gawk at different visual arts or exercising my fingers on games. Or napping in the kitchen cabinet.
