My name's Loren, and I'm a 26-year-old fangirl with a bachelor's degree and about 13 years of Japanese experience under my belt. I've loved manga, anime, games, and Japanese culture since I was quite young, fandom is my biggest hobby by far, and I'm looking forward to hopefully getting together with some of you guys and doing some great work to bring more manga to the masses here
As a translator I pride myself on doing natural-sounding work, because I really hate reading manga where the phrasing of dialogue sounds nothing like how people actually speak, so I hope potential editors will help work with me to produce stuff that sounds very real
. My main fannish genres are not yaoi or BL -- I'm mostly into shounen/shoujo series, with my current favorites being Pandora Hearts and Ao no Exorcist, past ones including D.Gray-man, Gakuen Alice, Code Geass, Uraboku, etc. -- but I do very much consider myself a fujoshi. I like to read all sorts of stuff and I'm looking forward to working on a wide variety of titles!
Note that I have not taken the lettering or editing tests, so I am not available to also be a group's Letterer or Editor, but I have experience at both these tasks so if needed I could do a bit of spot work to help the main Editor/Letterer out. I am considering taking the editing test in the future.
If you'd like to get in touch with me, feel free to email me at atsurou (at) gmail
, MSN at same, AIM at FujiMephi
, or PMs here on the board. I look forward to hearing from you!!
Sorry but I am no longer looking for a group right now! I'll edit this signature if that changes. Since, uh, I can't edit my post... -6/3/2011
