i some questions Stranger Ataru:
1 Why do you translate some Kinnikuman chapters that seem to be random (i know they aren't)? i mean, why didn't you translate the first Akuma Chojin, Buffaloman's arc, it's not that i wanted translations of the arc, i saw the anime, but why this "special translation order"?
2 Also, are you planning to translate any Nisei chapter or any Nisei Time Travel Chojin Tag chapter?
*cheers on your translation, gambare!*
2. I'm not sure whether or not I'll be doing Nisei at this time. Depends on what's going on by then out there.
Hey, I'm your biggest fan! (I think.) I got a couple of questions here.
1. Was it hard learning japanese? (I plan to learn japanese and I really want to know if it's damn hard.)
2. Will you translate anymore mangas? (I have a couple of recommendations like Chobits by CLAMP or Undead by Kazurou Inoue, the guy who made Ai Kora. If you need any Raws for both, last time I checked, MH has some.)
Didn't know Inoue did that "Undead" series. To tell the truth, I mostly picked up Ai Kora at the suggestion of someone else and it just exploded from there. Could consider it as like an extra Ai Kora volume if I do it after that's over but I'll see.Quote:
Thing is that currently I sort of want to either stick with shonen or maybe venture into seinen after I finish with a couple of the things I've been doing. I have a few ideas in my head, mostly some older series (Jump mostly) that I want to actually do but I'm still open to anything if it draws me in. (sort of like Ai Kora...though that I sort of liked anyway after reading bits and pieces when it was running) A few series I'm contemplating currently though include:
-Hell Teacher Nube (a personal favorite from when I got into manga and one that needs to just be out there)
-Wingman (early Masakazu Katsura and looks really neat)
-Ring Ni Kakero (another early Jump series, this time by Masami Kurumada pre-Saint Seiya)
-Go! Tenba Cheerleaders (sort of stumbled on this...somehow it gave me vibes of "what could have been" with one of my favorite Negima girls...before Akamatsu ruined it)
So you mostly like older mangas? To tell you the truth, I really don't like older mangas, the art style doesn't look that attractive. But that's just my opinion. I really hope you could translate some of the mangas like Undead, or Toradora, but it's fine if you don't. Oh, and one more question, are you going to be translating any new Ai Kora chapters soon? If you do, I'll be sure to scanlate all of 'em!
As for Ai Kora...I probably won't be back until after I finish Jii-chan G vol. 3. I sort of go back and forth between the two series lately. (while doing Kinnikuman in the midst)
Don't contemplate on doing "Go! Tenba Cheerleaders." The manga looks neat, although I didn't like how the main character was designed. Seriously, he looks like a monkey. If you translate it, maybe I can scanlate some of the chapters from time to time since I currently have nothing to translate, and I'm pretty much bored out of my mind right now. So yeah.
Well come to think of it, the female lead does look kinda like Sakurako Shiina. But w/e, I really don't like Negima that much. To tell you the truth, I liked Love Hina more. The only thing that was keeping me from reading Negima is Evangeline since she pretty much has the same personality as my favorite female anime character.
As for fav girls: Chisame is and will always be #1, but it's shocking how Sakurako became #2...also like Sayo, Ako, Akira, Chachamaru, Ku Fei, Konoka (though moreso anything without Setsuna), Chizuru, Nodoka (another "sort of", considering I don't like some of her crap), Ayaka & Zazie.
I really liked the first half volumes of Love Hina. But when it got to the last volume, it got shitty. Akamatsu's putting too much fan-service in his works imo and its become repetitive. As for Chisame, she looks like Naru from Love Hina in my point of view. And so do Nodoka, Ku Fei, Kaede, and Setsuna. All of the previously mentioned characters were designed from the characters from Love Hina, and led me to the conclusion that Akamatsu lost his originality. If you compare Akamatsu's work to Inoue's, I think Inoue's would be better. Ai Kora gave me the lulz, and its kinda addicting. And you're pretty much right on Negima's progress. They aren't really improving well atm.
As for my fav girls; Eva, Konoka, Haruna, Zazie, Setsuna, Ayaka, and Sayo. Well, I think that's pretty much it.
The problem is that Akamatsu wants to think he's a big-deal shonen writer...when he's not. Heck it's not even parody. It's...I don't even know. And BTW, I know that the characters essentially are similar to Love Hina's designs, but in some cases I don't mind (Chisame, Kaede) and others......(wants to go back and stop the concept of Setsuna from being used)
Oh, forgot to add Kaede in my list earlier...and maybe Misa, mostly cause she's crazy too. (no Sakurako but she has her charm)
Actually, I don't like Kaede and Ku Fei. The words they always use to end their sentences practically pisses me off. Don't get me started on Chao. Chisame really looked cute with her cosplay costume, and I got interested about her after seeing that. But then, her pactio ability..... It sucks..... I mean come one, hacking? Can't Akamatsu give her a better ability than that? Well now that I think about it, most of the characters have suckish pactio ability, like Setsuna and Nodoka. The only pactio ability that I liked was Asuna's and Negi's 4th pactio with the lightning spear (was it his 4th?). I don't think Akamatsu gave anymore damn about the others'.
I like Kaeda a bit more than Ku, Kaede is just a nice, serious character with silly moments...and Ku is just a weird nikuman-brain
Exactly, its specifically tied to the internet. But for the most part, I like Chisame. Cute cosplay costume, tsundere personality, etc. I read the whole series and only a few moments made me lol. Akamatsu's spamming the series with a hell lotta fan-service and its become a bad habit for him and its pretty much annoying for me. I like Kaede better than Ku too. I don't know why, but maybe its because of the fact that she has big breasts. Lolno.
