Question What Happened to DIVINE AYU?

I had just went to go visit this website recently, and I noticed that this website hasn't been updated since 2013.

I'm quite sad that this website hasn't been updated, especially since it was moderated by someone who was quite clearly a fan of Ayu.

What happened to this site, and is there a way to contact this person and ask what's going on?

^I noticed that too. Divine Ayu is the source where I look at Ayu's lyrics, but it's not updated for quite a long time already. I was wondering if the person got tired of updating? I didn't see where we could leave a message or email to the person though. >_<

I found this email linked to the owner of the site (in the paypal thing where you can donate): divinefang@yahoo.com < maybe you can try to contact him/her here

I was wondering what happened to the owner as well, seeing as how they didn't have the Colours album lyrics up. I always go to them for when I want translations or I just wanna sing along to an Ayu song correctly, lol. If anything, the owner probably just lost motivation to continue the site.

Divinefang's fandom has been gradually slowing down over the years... one section would lose frequent updates, then another, then another... pretty soon it was only news & lyrics being updated.

I'm honestly shocked the site has continued updates as long as it has, I remember it launching when I was in high school (I graduated in 2002!! lol)

Yeah it's pretty sad, i go in the lyrics section very often, this is very useful because everything is there, but yeah the person hasn't updated since LOVE again. This is really sad to see people's fandom for ayu going away.

This thread got me thinking into creating a tumblr just for her lyrics translations! I'll try to make it happen if i have the time c:

That's a brilliant idea!

I always wish there was a (proper) Twitter account for translations of her lyrics to. There did used to be a pretty good one but I can't find any active ones anymore.

Misa's translations are at lettersfromayu.wordpress.com (her lyrics section links to the ayu lyrics at her other blog, Misa's J-Pop Blog).

I'm translating her lyrics too (It's been a MASSIVE project but hey, ohsixthirty is a fan lol), but I'm uploading them one at a time over the course of the year for my song-a-day blog project, there's not any sort of lookup thing for them yet.

Eneabba is such a sad story.

Oh so much nostalgia on these sites! I was at junior middle school around 2003 when I check lyrics, screen caps, and cd scans so often!

Yeah it was nostalgic! It's my favorite site along with Eneabba when I first jumped into Ayu's bandwagon. I still visit the lyrics section quite often though. I remembered I'd take times to load the CD scans due to slow internet and I saved every CD scans

That’s sad, I used to be a frequent checker there when I first got into ayu.
