Welcome to the Akayuki Archives. This is a restoration project for Akayuki, our former gaming blog and the predecessor to Dreamflask/ManaJournal.
Akayuki was an independent video game website operated by Dreamflask staff way back in 2007-2009. It was a simple blog dedicated to the latest in gaming news, soundtracks, trailers, concept art and more.
We’ve decided to preserve the legacy of Akayuki by compiling old articles and content here at Dreamflask. If nothing else, it should offer a glimpse into a bygone era of gaming.
We would like to thank the following staff members for their contributions to the now-defunct website(s):
- Byakuya (aliases: Shiron, Suzaku, Squall) – Former webmaster at Akayuki and FFWorldwide
- Soul – Former author at Akayuki and webmaster at Forever-Fantasy.net
- Jak – Former author at Akayuki
- Nemo – Former author at Akayuki
- Duane – Former author at Akayuki
- Trevor – Former author at Akayuki
For privacy reasons we do not share any information about Akayuki staff members, but if you have any questions related to the website or its content you can send us a DM on Twitter.
So far we’ve restored 551 news articles from Akayuki, but we’re not stopping there. Keep an eye on the archives for new (old?) additions in the future.
As a bonus we’ve included a handful of articles from FFWorldwide. This was a short-lived 2006 era website dedicated to the Final Fantasy series. These articles will be marked with the #FFWorldwide tag.
