The words below mark the first steps that the Impostor is taking to make amends.
To the fans of Sailor Moon
I have to give you my most sincere and needed apology. What I have done is probably unforgivable to most, but to those of you willing to accept my request for forgiveness I would be so happy. I have annoyed and distressed a lot of you, and questioning and doubting the actresses’ relationships with their fans. And for this, I am truly sorry. I want you to know that I am not a bad person. I have done some bad things which I vow to never do such things again. My interest in Sailor Moon is gone and I will be walking away from this community that has given me so many laughs in the past few years. I cannot begin to say just how sorry I am. Words can not describe my inner thoughts. I know a lot of people will hate me, and will never forgive me, which I completely understand and respect.
Some of the best people I’ve met online have been you Sailor Moon Fans, and I have definitely betrayed you. You certainly are a dedicated group of people, to which I owe a great and blue apology. This letter is probably very, very bad, but I really am sorry. I cannot be anymore sorry. If I could turn back time, and be rid of this whole mess I would, you have no idea how fast I would take that opportunity. I just want this entire thing to go away, to be gone, to make things right, This is what I have to do to fix this. You fantastic people deserve to have an apology, even the apology of a scumbag like me. I do not want you to feel any sympathy for me, I know you don’t. But, just to be clear, I know I do not deserve any ounce of sympathy from you, from anyone. I should be giving you sympathy.
Yes, it’s true. I have been asked to write this apology, but that wouldn’t have stopped me from making an apology to you anyway. I am extremely sincere, legit. I’ve never been more so.
I need all of you to know that I am also sorry for something I did quite some time ago. The rumour that ‘Sailor Moon was returning’ was, which most people know, did not happen. I created the ‘sucky’ rumour it was back. But only because I wanted the Television guides to have more exposure. I did initially think it was returning, but then I realised it wasn’t. Moon Chase did an incredible job looking in to the rumour, seeing if it was actually returning. I am extremely sorry, again, for this.
People always make mistakes. Life didn’t come with instructions. But I can honestly say I have learned a lot from mine, I will not be doing anything like this again, and you can be sure! I just hope you can forgive me. The guilt has been rising up inside me, it may sound crazy but I cannot express just how sorry I am. I know it’s just words but I am so, so, so, so, serious about how apologetic I am it’s unreal.
Understand how sorry I am. I know I am going to get a lot of hate. Hate I deserve. I don’t want anyone to think I don’t care. I really do care about what I’ve done to a lot of people. I am incredibly sorry. I hope you know just how sorry I am.
Please forgive me.
