I have drafted this journal several times before but never had the courage to actually post it, but now I think it's high time I did this.
This is a very difficult thing for me. I have had this on my mind for quite some time now and I have no doubt that it will be a very unpopular decision, but I think it's time I finally lay Super Mario Bros Z to rest. I have been fooling myself into thinking I would continue the series because part of me really wanted to see it finished. But the fact is, it is a time consuming process and I have grown tired of working on it. Sprite animation no longer has the same appeal to me as it did several years ago. What was once a fun hobby of mine has now turned into a chore from the constant demand, which clearly shows from the lack of updates since episode 8 was released. I could blame my lack of motivation on my monotonous job and the impatient fans. (Not saying all my fans are impatient, of course. I'm only referring to the vocal minority). I have been keeping the series on life-support this long, hoping that some day my creative spark would return to me. Unfortunately it never did.
In any case, I would like to thank everyone who stuck by the series this long. It really pains me to do this to all of you after years of false promises, but it's high time I gave myself a reality check.
With that said, this old account has no real purpose anymore since my furry artwork has migrated to my new account . I may leave this one inactive or just outright deactivate it. I haven't made my decision yet. I would greatly appreciate that you only watch my new account if you like the subject matter. I will not tolerate anything related to SMBZ being posted on it, or else you will be removed.
Thanks again for all the support (or hatred) you have given me throughout the years. Peace.
