Andriasang shuts down

You have to get your Japanese coverage from somewhere else.

Posted By | On 11th, Sep. 2012

This is one of the terrible news that makes my heart bleed. Andriasang will be shut down soon. The site was a popular hub for Japanese news and information, run by one man, Anoop Gantayat–who also worked for IGN before.

There is a lack of Japanese coverage in the mainstream gaming media, so such a closing hurts the Japanese industry a lot more than whatever else. It reduces visibility to western public as well. Andriasang was a pretty popular site among gamers and this is really sad to hear.

“I’ve decided to take up a new opportunity that will hopefully keep me really busy, so I will be ceasing daily updates. I may do some database-driven stuff and technology tests (look closely, and you may see the site’s backend code base change from PHP to node.js!), but I won’t be doing articles or updates. The site’s archive and comments will remain in place, so you can still consult old content,” wrote Anoop Gantayat.

“Thanks for reading all these years, and a special thanks to everyone who registered and posted comments — even the punk asses I banned.”
