Something to the effect of "previously a game publishing company; starting with 2008, a freelance illustrator."

I suppose it doesn't necessarily mean that we'll never see her in IIDX again, since F-FLY left Konami a while back but still has done stuff as recently as Empress.

pour one on the curb for my xepher homies who will no doubt take this hard anyway

Well, there goes some art IIDX.

I'm inclined to agree with the sentiment that she's probably still going to do stuff for Konami, but is no longer exclusively employed by them.
IIDX definitely needs MAYA.

Edit: Come to think of it, after making the video to Turii, she was probably all "F- this Konami BS, I could be bankin' the big yen by going freelance"
It makes sense.

Oh, so the MAYA animes with Tatsh's music will be coming soon?

This is what happens when IIDX artists learn how to animate. It really sucks though...MAYA was getting really good, and she better still do a few songs a style.

Hehe, your comment amused me, but I will definitely miss her stuff. Now I'm starting to regret not buying the IIDX GOLD SE with the MAYA puzzle. =/

I hope she continues doing bgas for IIDX because I love her work. Well, maybe she will start something bigger now? who knows.

I'm really glad that I bought Gold SEC.
