This blog will soon close.

Due that I have not updated so far, I might be closing soon because of lack of sources on the Disney side, The lack of interest on the current Kamen Rider series, as well as not many people have clicked the ads so far and I haven't got any money from this blog recently, from both Google and Play-Asia.

So by next year, I might close and stop updating on both things, as I am now leaving the blog by next year. Sorry, but it's time for me to move on and find another way of making money or doing something fun. Until then...
