Hi, FNG here (well, 4/12/15 9:18pm GMT+8 is this acct's BDay so I'm gonna start counting my years here as a registered member)

What I am?[edit]

I am a avid unregistered reader waaaaay back the last decade. amateur (Or should I say, wannabe?) translator (Currently self-studying Japanese at the moment) I am fluent in English (well, in written forms actually, I'm not so good at oral communication) I know my translation have flaws, many flaws, but you can help in correcting them. PLEASE CORRECT THEM. It will be a great help to me and to every reader of this stupid works of mine.

Why do I came here:[edit]

WARNING: TLDR

TBH i like "amateur" translations most coz they don't change the context much, well, with the exception of language and culture barriers of course. When I bought the official English Publication of a Novel I want I was disappointed. it feels the same way like I was reading my math books. The mood was turned off and the excitement that I felt when reading the official was lost and my hopes crushed. I have even abstained myself from reading the novel translated here just to feel the excitement again just like the first time I read it (Honestly I have read the amateur translations to the point of memorizing it) but as I compare the novel "here" and "there" there is a very big difference between the two. So much to my disappointment, I tried to "learn" the language and culture of the Japanese itself. But still, I doubt my translations would please the readers because I'm new to the Japanese language so please feel free to edit my works. In fact I would appreciate it gladly if you proofread it because I might change the whole meaning or a part of a story.--Arsl31 (talk) 03:34, 15 April 2015 (CDT)

Resuming Translations for a bit. I don't know how long will I be vacant, but I should say I'm stil alive and translating--Arsl31 (talk) 12:03, 23 August 2015 (UTC)

Currently on semestral break. This means I'll be translating IN FULL TIME from now on till New Year or so~--Arsl31 (talk) 20:53, 22 October 2015 (UTC)

Too busy IRL, will resume translations after Post Xmas...--Arsl31 (talk) 01:38, 23 December 2015 (UTC)

My college thesis SNAFU. Don't know whether I will graduate or not, and its been hindering my time for the translations. I apologize for the long hiatus. Will resume translations on March, whether I will graduate or not.--Arsl31 (talk) 09:04, 15 February 2016 (UTC)

Grad-waiting. A little bit of papers here and there but I can manage my translations from now on. Thank you for your patience--Arsl31 (talk) 02:17, 8 March 2016 (UTC)

ACTIVE. Currently translating Chapter 3 of Volume 6 of Shinmai, I'm not really sure of the quality. Will re-translate that Volume 3's garbage translation of mine if I have time (due to many complaints). That thing really needs a massive overhaul. I apologize for this translator's incompetence.--Arsl31 (talk) 08:58, 14 April 2016 (UTC)

Finished translating Volume 6 chapter 3. Now that I've graduated (and in debt) I'll be looking for work and secure my foothold before I start translating again. Wish me luck! --Arsl31 (talk) 09:58, 2 May 2016 (UTC)
