Yatta-Tachi’s 3rd Year Anniversary – Reflecting Back

Another year has flown by... let's take a look back.

Wow. Three years~! It’s honestly weird to think about it. We’ve come a long way from where we started back in 2015. A lot of things have changed in the past year and I think we’ve finally found our place in the community.

A Little Recap

In a year’s time, we’ve conducted several interviews, covered several conventions (even one internationally!), had a few giveaways, created a podcast network, and are now working with more than 25 contributors from all over the world. Just like the year before, we broke our record on the highest number of views yet again, and are on track to doubling our yearly traffic as well! We wouldn’t be here without the help of the many amazing people who volunteer their time and effort to help us get where we are today.

As I mentioned last year, it brings me such great pleasure to promote their works and I couldn’t be any more proud of them. We continue to stand out from the crowd because of them and for that, I’m truly thankful.

A Few Thank you’s from the Yatta-Tachi Staff:

Yay! Yatta-Tachi is now a three-year-old kid! We have grown from baby talks to walking and asking “Why?” countless times. Yatta-Tachi is an ever-curious, ever-learning, and ever-growing team and community. I, personally, thank all of you who have been following us and here is to many more years to come!” – detrop
