    The Aichi Alex Thread

    Hey guys, what's up.
    Let's see.... I've been translating from Japanese into English for about two years now, mostly brochures, pamphlets, etc... (although I did translate an entire book on 茶道) . I've been learning Japanese for about six years now (I also lived in Japan for two years) but I've only recently started to like manga. My favorite Japanese band is RADWIMPS, (seen them live twice) followed closely by The Blue Hearts, and I guess Ajikan is pretty high up there too... If you want to talk to me about these bands, just drop me a line, I could spend a year talking about RADWIMPS. Anyway, if you have a manga you'd like translated, feel free to drop me a line. So far, I've been charging for all of the translating work I've done, but that's mostly because noone's asked me a to translate a manga that I've liked enough to do for free.

    Anyway, if you have any questions for me, or requests, send me a PM or reply to this thread.

    Oh yeah, and I don't require furigana to translate I've been told that that's a pretty uncommon thing

    Umm.. check here there is a translation AND a scanlation of the first chapter out already...

    I guess I will go with a music question is J-Rock your favourite musical genre? What makes the radwimps stand out so much as being special?

    I'm not the biggest fan, whent it comes to Japanese music I drift towards more jazzy and hiphoppy sounds like Nujabes, Gagle, J.A.M, Kyoto Jazz Massive and many more.I am however a big Happy End and Detroit7 fan (one old one new I guess).

    Nujabes is completely awesome.[/offtopic]

    Welcome to MH, I guess, Aichi Alex.

    Question: what type of manga do you like, and which are you currently enjoying?

    To tell you the truth I have no idea. When I as in 8th grade, I had no idea what anime or manga or ramen even was, but I new that I wanted to study Japanese in high school more than anything else. Maybe it was because my best friends all throughout primary school were two Japanese kids (twin brother and sister) but I dunno, it's something I've been pondering myself

    I started learning in highschool, then in my junior year I moved on to watching middle-school / high-school themed j-drama learning speech patterns and stuff, finally I went to Japan and studied there.

    I've had a few, I think that they're great, but I don't have "yellow fever" if you know what I mean. Right now I've got somebody in Japan waiting for me, but it's quite complicated, so I don't know how that's gonna work out.

    Never heard of it, I only started reading manga about 6 months ago, I used to think it was all bubbly-eyed girls and space-robots but I've found some that I really like, I'd have to say that GTO is my favorite.

    Wow that's a tough question, If you looked at my itunes library, you'd definitely think that J-rock is my favorite musical genre, but I dunno, I don't really have a favorite Genre, I just like good music (lol) some of my favorite non-j-rock bands include Nujabes, Ratatat, Rodrigo Y Gabriella, Reel Big Fish, the list goes on and on....

    I guess the reason I love radwimps the most is that I listened to them with my best friends all throughout my senior year of high-school (which I spent in Japan) and every time I listen to them, it reminds me of the good old days. I'm also a big fan of blink 182 (their old stuff) and radwimps REALLY reminds me of blink.

    So far, I like high-school-themed manga the most. (I have by no means read a lot of manga) Right now I'm actually reading a graphic novel called Preacher, it's pretty fucked up, but really interesting, give it a shot if you've got some free time.

    Hi I represent Fighting Dreamers Scanlations and I am wondering how much you would charge to translate Volume 8 Chapter 43 of Tokyo Underground here is a link http://www.filesend.net/download.php...35233affb70c00
    If you like the series enough maybe you would be interested in doing it for free even. In the meantime please reply or PM me with an estimate.
