"I've had the plan of ending SiIvaGunner on September 30th"
―Chaze the Chat[1]

The Channel Ending is the supposed ending of the SiIvaGunner channel on September 30, 2016. During this ending, starting on September 27, many albums and final rips were released. This is (retroactively) the final event of Season 1.

Background Edit

Chaze the Chat had planned since May to end the channel on a high note on September 30, 2016, the 56th anniversary of the first airing of The Flintstones, rather than have the channel continue until it got stale or the contributors got bored, since the channel wouldn't have a satisfying ending that way.

At this point in time, the Halloween and Christmas events were planned to happen, but they were intended to be brief special returns for the holidays. However, due to the delay of the final rips, the Halloween special was pushed back a few days and ended up taking place in November shortly after the finale event, which led to much confusion and anger among SiIvaGunner viewers. Additionally, the Christmas special suffered from various delays and remains uncompleted, which led to this "ending" being redefined as the end of Season 1 so that it would make sense for the channel to continue to upload.

Rips uploaded Edit

On September 27, several new albums started being released (at least one every day), which caused viewers to become suspicious of a channel ending. On September 29, the channel started getting many elaborate medley rips and finale rips. The channel stopped uploading rips in an hourly schedule on after the rip "Planet Wisp: Act 2 - Sonic Generations".

Then, on September 30, SiIvaGunner released 3 more albums, a Curtain Call featuring every contributor to the channel, and "Battle! (Wild Pokémon) (High Quality) - Pokémon Ruby & Sapphire", a remaster of the very first high quality rip. Later that day, SiIvaGunner released "the nutshack theme but the first nutshack is replaced with me ending the channel", a 50-minute long "vlog" made by Chaze, revealing that he was behind the channel and that he had planned to end the channel. He also says in the vlog that two more finale rips would be released after it, but this number was bumped up a number of times for various reasons, and ultimately landed on 7 finale rips.

On Twitter, SiIvaGunner announced that the next two rips were taking longer to rip than expected, so it was decided to release a third rip.[2][3]

The channel description was changed to:

Here you found a selection of mostly Nintendo video game music.

I did not own the rights to any of the music heard in these videos. Ripping and recording game music was quite a time-consuming undertaking for me (especially Wii U and 3DS), but you left soundtrack requests or suggestions via PM or Twitter, and I did what I could.

Banner artwork was from the game "Tengami".
