I’ve always considered this site to be a place for fans to share their Yakuza love. We used to be able to quickly reblog things through tumblr but now that fan promotion is a little harder to do. Luckily we’ve got a fantastic community that are still just as passionate as ever about seeing this series succeed in the west. We’re all separated around the globe but interacting through twitter, facebook and discord I’d consider all of you friends.
Yakuza fan Jack (@CreamyElephant) has been a loyal reader, and backer, for a while now and asked if it would be ok to share his thoughts on something that he finds the Yakuza series does almost completely uniquely for a video game series.
Make sure you get in touch and let Jack know what you think or please leave a comment.read more
