This movement was successful; after a year, Chinjufu Channel has become a trusted source of early event intelligence, a page collecting great fanarts and one that reports information on merchandise and events related to Kantai Collection. On 21 June 2016, Chinjufu Channel reached its 10K likes milestone. However, with the retirement of ExudingFate, the main translator, and the growing community, it has become apparent that Chinjufu Channel should take a step forward and join Patreon to provide better services.
With Patreon pledges, Chinjufu Channel will be able to provide a lot more. These are, but not limited to:
- Manga translations, by which capital is needed to obtain and scan raw copies
- Book translations, by which capital is needed to obtain a copy of the official books
- Magazine sharing/review, by which capital is needed to purchase relevant magazines that have developer hints such as Comptiq
- Regular DMM point giveaways, by which capital is needed to maintain
- Improved web services such as a website, wiki or forum, by which capital is needed to pay a web host, domain and other software
