An Article I Wrote About Scanlation

Kind of random for this blog, but I had to write an article about a "serious topic" for class so I decided to write about the Licensed Manga VS Scanlation issue. The Japanese might not be perfect, because even though the teacher edited and corrected our rough drafts I noticed some mistakes during the revision stage that even she missed. So, presumably there are more than we both missed. Anyways, in case you were curious about how good (or rather, how bad) my Japanese is, here is the article: Link Here! And yes, I'll be updating with LSL Raws in a few hours, now that my final paper of the semester is DONE <3

  2. Just found this blog recently and haven't thanked you properly. You've got great collections (LSL). I usually read the raw from other site.

    ああ、ところで、素晴らしい記事だった。たった今読みました。私もスキャンレーションの翻訳者だった。英語に訳するのは時間がかかるけど、楽しかった。英語は私の第三の文語なんですから。^^いつも素晴らしいスキャンを次々とインタネットに配信するご苦労様でした。一応お礼を言いたかたのです。^^

    2. どういたしまして。^^母語は中国語とインドネシア語。どっちが先なら、中国語です。説明すると複雑なんですよ。この文語しか五歳まで知らないから。あなたもなかなか日本語が上手ね。^^

  4. Icarusの論文面白かったです(^^)やっぱり、英語版が出るまで時間がかかることが嫌な読者が多いから問題が生じますね。今年発売の大人気ゲーム(ファイナルファンタジー、ポケモン)は、日本語版も英語版もほぼ同時に出るそうです。これは初めてのことらしいので、どうなるかが気になります('v')もしうまくいったら、漫画業界にも見習って欲しいですね。
