Site Update – Important Announcement & Short Hiatus

Taking a short break, but in the meantime, we have something extremely exciting to share with you!

Greetings fellow Yattans!

Starting tomorrow, we will be on hiatus until the 31st of July. Several of our staff will be on vacation (all editors and myself), so we wanted to give ourselves time to recharge. Never fear though! We will be back in the game and rolling out articles starting the 1st of August!

Also, we have a few exciting events coming to Yatta-Tachi in the next couple of weeks that we are beyond excited to be a part of. One of them which you can participate in we can announce RIGHT NOW.

Besides being press for AnimeFest next month, we are in the process of finalizing our interview requests for the Japanese industry guests. Yes, we have a strong chance of being able to interview, among others, none other than the studio staff of YURI!!! ON ICE.
