I was a big fan of the original series but some time after that finished up I sort of lost interest in specifically hunting down anime to be entertained. I still enjoy it as a medium but am less likely to trend towards fanatacism at this stage. Being busy with school and eventually work also were factors in my diminished activity on LJ and this community.
I no longer have the time to hang out heavily on LJ and to be frank I've been putting this off for a while. I'm going to close all further membership and give folks some time to archive the messages they want to keep, however I'm probably going to delete the community for good by the end of May.
