Anoop-Gantayat_IGNIf you’re at all interested in the Japanese side of gaming, you probably read—or have at some time read—Andriasang.

Sadly, site administrator Anoop Gantayat announced today that he will be ceasing daily updates immediately.

Gantayat, at the time a correspondent for IGN, started Andriasang in 2008. Current, daily updates and new content quickly made Andriasang a major news source for Japanese gaming fans.

Gantayat said in this most recent post that he’ll continue to update the site’s backend, and that the archive and comments will stay online. Reading the site’s About and Technology pages quickly reveals that the site was as much a pet coding project as it was a journalistic endeavor, so it isn’t surprising that Gantayat will continue to work on the technology itself.

While he didn’t go into exactly what he’ll be doing, Gantayat says he has taken on a new opportunity that he expects to take up a majority of his time.

Both Anoop and his daily updates will be missed. We wish Anoop luck in wherever this new opportunity takes him.
