So, during my latest sojourn to Japan, I managed to duck in to a Book-Off for a few minutes. I quickly bought four volumes of manga: Bleach 1 and 2, and two not-quite-randomly chosen volumes of Dragonball (actually, they were the ones with my two favourite moments from the series – Goku turning SSJ versus Frieza, and Gohan beating Cell).
Now all I have to do is decide which of these four I will use as my volume to translate. No, I have no intention of contributing to the scanslation community; I am nowhere near confident enough in my skills to do so, and besides, I would like to have a reference to check my results, so to speak.
I can’t imagine this will be too big an undertaking; after all, I’ve translated songs in the past, as well as having read the series X/1999 in its original Japanese some time ago. This is more about stretching those muscles than developing them in any serious way. It should be fun. 20 months ago
