Talk:Spice & Wolf
Horo's closer to 600 years old, not 200. :l
I say Horo's 1000years old.
...then again I have nothing to back it up, but then neither do you.
So until some body shows me some solid evidence (i.e. written sentence), this point is moot.

"Possible errors in the Japanese text publish will be expected to be higher, due to the unavailability of a human Japanese RAWS -> Japanese Text -> English translator."

- I think he means the OCR is not made by someone who's proficient in Japanese, so there may be errors in the process. Seven Eleven 06:58, 9 February 2008 (PST)
- I think there may have been some miscommunication between Onizuka and me. We have raws, I'll be proofing the Chapter 1 raws as I translate, but I'm not that skilled in Japanese or translating yet, so there are going to be errors. That's pretty much how the project is going to go, until more skilled translators join in. Meantime, I'd like to invite anyone who know knows Japanese well to critique my draft in the Discussion Page; I'm hoping this can be a learning project for me. Thanks.

Just like to give a big thank you to all that's involved with this. I'm not much help but I'll be snooping around to give everyone a big hug for this project. 8>
Hello! Piroko here. After watching Spice & Wolf, as well as hearing that there were light novels that it was based on here, I had to come and check it out. Therefore, I would like to contribute with editing the chapters for S&W novels. I'm aiming to be a dedicated project-wide editor, so here's my start! At least now my English skills won't go to waste. :P -Piroko 18:27, 16 April 2008 (PST)
Trying to do my part
I fell in love with this series after watching the anime, and decided to read the light novels too! Needless to say, I will try and do my part by editing the English translations.
