Hi, I'm Becky.
I'm primarily a cleaner, redrawer, and typesetter (To which my typography teacher would be glad I finally used his lessons for something.), but part of the reason I joined was also to improve my translation skills. (Haven't brushed up on my Japanese in a couple of years.) I love oldschool shonen manga, some of my favourites being Ashita no Joe and Saint Seiya.
In my spare time I'd love to improve my language skills and take a crack at getting a group together to translate and release Masami Kurumada's Ring ni Kakero.
I'm really jazzed to meet all of you, and if anyone needs help, I'm always willing to offer advice and help with projects!
Welcome to mh - glad to have you here.
Check out the Forum: Manga WorksSection - it may have some usual things for you.
Also has the staff and projects section there - the perfect place to see if you can get someone to help you fill up them group spots.
Welcome on MH.
I have seen that you read old-school manga, but there are also others that you're reading right now?

Have you read anything else from Urasawa besides Monster?

We have a beautiful friendship.
I actually read a chunk of Pluto. The only thing stopping me from continuing is how bad it creeps me out. Self-aware robots, how about no! The Matrix kind of scared me so bad it ruined me for that concept. It's still really interesting, though. I need to finish it.

Try 20th Century Boys then...the plot is more expansive than Monster, and more complex too, however the thriller dose is not the same...it's still great!
I'd also suggest Eden: It's an Endless World, by Endo Hiroki...same complexity, deep story, and a bit more mature than Urasawa's works....but it simply blew my mind
What I liked about all these titles is that the story goes on for decades, capturing the characters in different times of their lives...

I love stories like that. It's just great to watch the characters grow and change.
Berserk forum if you like to discuss the chapters and various stuff about Berserk...
Great!! I'm glad you like it....there is a sequel too after you finish it 21th century...a short sequel and not as good, but it's still a good readQuote:
