Important Update: Please Read

 It really saddens me that it has to come to this, but MIA has been dissolved.

As I explained in the discord server (12), Yoga has refused to negotiate in good faith, and so there is no feasible way to move forward. I also don’t want to continue on with a brand that has a cloud looming over it.

In  the video I uploaded to my channel a few days ago, I announced that I was working on an entirely new version of the MIA website. I’m going to continue this project, but it will be released under a new brand. I’ll unveil the new brand when the new site is released.

MIA Website

I know that many people use the current MIA website as a reference for their language learning. In light of this, I will keep the site in its present state for the foreseeable future.


For the time being, I will be operating as Matt vs. Japan. As you can see, I’ve already converted over the Patreon and Discord and have removed all MIA add-on related content.

Going forward, I’m going to be creating videos and articles to help people succeed in immersion-based language learning. Although I may collaborate with developers in the community to facilitate the creation of new tools, I don’t have any short-term plans to develop proprietary software.

If you would like to support me in these endeavors, please stay subscribed to the Matt vs. Japan Patreon. If not, I completely understand.

If you were subscribed to the Patreon specifically because of tools, please consider subscribing to  Yoga’s new Patreon. It looks like he’s going to be developing some truly useful tools in the near future.


If you have bought MIA merch and would like a refund, please email your receipt to "[email protected]" and I will issue you a refund.


It’s truly unfortunate that things are ending on this note, but running MIA has been a wild and fulfilling ride. I can’t express how grateful I am to everyone who has stuck with me thus far.

I still have years’ worth of video and article ideas left, and I plan on continuing to hone my craft, so I sincerely hope that you’ll help me to help you learn languages!

Seriously, thanks so much guys.
