I’ll answer any questions you may have below in the comment section, or you can just pop in and say hi ☆⌒(≧▽° )
Can you/will you/are you going to translate *insert CD name*?
Unfortunately, no. Unless it’s displayed in the sidebar, chances are, I will not be translating said CD any time in the near future. I don’t take requests since I’m already on a really tight schedule (I am a full-time student with a part-time job) and have to forcibly make time in order to translate.
Translations are labors of love and I work to provide a steady stream of them at my own expense, so if possible, I’d like you to respect my time.
That said, my commissions are currently open so if there’s something you really wanted translated, that option is available to you.
How did you learn Japanese? Any tips?
I’m sure you’ve heard it before but the simple answer is immersion.
Personally, I’m a person who hates studying, so yeah, I kinda picked up my Japanese along the way over the years from drama CDs, games, visual novels, etc. and going absolute ham with translating (though I would not recommend it for sanity’s sake).
The more you use it, the better you get at it, that’s all I can really say.
