Voltage JP to Permanently Terminate All Services for the Japanese Version of 10DWMD and Gossip Girl Novel Type

As if what they did for the past three months wasn’t enough, last Friday they announced (bad news again) that they will terminate all services, including the stories, for 10DWMD and Gossip Girl Japanese paid version. That means you can’t read the stories you bought in those two apps anymore, including the prologue, starting from July 29 Japan time.

Note that before the announcement, those two apps were already removed from the store, but if you already downloaded and purchased the stories before removed, you still can redownload and play the apps.

So for those who already bought the stories from those two apps, I suggest you to do something with your purchases before the apps will be terminated forever.

Honestly it’s really disheartening, knowing that all the purchases by fans for those two apps will be gone forever without compensation. It hasn’t happened to the English version yet, but I’m curious if the previous survey about e-book version in English OTBS app might be connected to this or not, in case they wanted to delete some apps. Nevertheless, I posted this as a friendly reminder to you that all apps might not be safe from termination.

Serena: I may have overreacted about how you portrayed me in the book.

Dan: Thank you so much. You know I have to admit it’s been kind of hard. My dad and Nate and Blair still won’t talk to me.

Serena: Well things are looking up then. One down, three to go.

Dan: Never thought you’d be the first.

Serena: I am full of surprises. You know that.

So, in like february I bought all 12 Gossip Girl books and I decided to start readin them now.I’m in love. I’m finishing the second book now and honestly it’s amazing. I do have some things to comment on (tipical), but I’ll only comment based on what I read on the FIRST book because it’s the only one I finished (tada).
It’s so weird god fkskkf. Chuck has a brother and a mother, he doesn’t go to St. Jude’s and he’s a total pig. Serena is more self absorbed, but at the same is totally ignored by everyone at school after she came back, also Erik is older and apparently not gay or suicidal and Mr. Van der Woodsen exists and him and Lily aren’t divorced so Lily isn’t the crazy marrying woman. Nate is Nate, but he’s baked all the time lol, he mannages to piss me off on the novel as well. Blair is bitchier(?) but at the same time more humble idk, she also has a brother and a cat! Dan is even weirder and boring, I get a hipster vibe out of him on the novel and Jenny is so not the tv show Jenny. Vanessa omg I LOVE her (I love Vanessa Abrams how’s that even possible?), she’s amazing on the books and she goes to Constance and guys fkskfksk.
The whole thing is so different from the tv show! The Pilot is the equivelent of the first book and everything goes on so differently but at end everything that happened on the novel happened on the series. I don’t have words to describe how different everything is but is also so perfect and amazing! I’m honestly in love. I thought I would hate it, for a lot of reasons but mostly because there’s no Chair, but I’m loving it.
The key differences though. They all smoke, like all the time. Dan doesn’t go to St. Jude’s either and him, Jenny & Rufus don’t live in loft in Brooklyn. Vanessa is not that pain in the ass, pathetic person with no personality that is Dan’s best friend. The novel Chuck is so Chuck, like the Chuck they showed us on the beginning of the show, he’s dirty, mean, has no shame or boundries, but I can’t not love him (influenced by the tv show Chuck of course). There is no Queen Bee, at least not until now and what happened to the MET steps??? Not having Lily as a Bass is weird. Gossip Girl herself isn’t relevant at all what the fuck?!! EVERYTHING IS A MESS BUT I LOVE IT 💕💕 The question remains though, how are the tv show and the novel the same thing? They’re nothing alike. Both amazing, but completely different.
Anyway, I wanted to share lol. Loving it though and eagerly reading the second book. That’s it bye
