I translate various things from Japanese to English; manga, lyrics, band tweets, etc. I try to stay as faithful to the original text as possible, while at the same time translating the text into natural English. My aim is to create a translation that is the English echo of its Japanese counterpart.
I would love to be able to translate Japanese visual-kei magazines into English and bring said magazines into a more international market for fans who can’t read or understand Japanese.
Outside of translation and various aspects of Japanese pop culture, my interests include reading, music, guitar, sports, coffee, etc.
Some bands I like/follow:
★ the GazettE
☆ TRA TRA TRA
★ 弾丸 NO LIMIT
☆ DELUHI (disbanded)
★ Pay money To my Pain (disbanded)
☆ EAT YOU ALIVE (disbanded)
★ Black Klaxon
I’m always looking for new bands, so feel free to suggest any!
