Introducing The Akayuki Archives

Alexis avatar Alexis / 31st August 2018 /

Good news everyone, the Akayuki Archives are now live! In case you didn’t read our announcement on Twitter last month, this is basically a restoration project for our previous gaming website, Akayuki(.com/net). Read more about it below.

Akayuki was an independent and non-biased video game blog operated by ManaJournal staff way back in 2007-2009. Its goal was to keep readers updated on a wide range of gaming related topics by delivering news, rumors, and media as quickly as possible. Here at ManaJournal we have decided to preserve the legacy of Akayuki by restoring and compiling old articles in our archive. Everything we publish has been approved by @Zhaan, former webmaster at Akayuki.
