A Look at the Uniqlo Official Evangelion 2.0 Movie T-shirts ::

Went ahead and ordered a few official Uniqlo Evangelion 2.0 t-shirts from London's Uniqlo store which offers a one off, flat rate postage and packaging fee so if you're ordering, it's best if you ordered more than one item. Although most online stores offer free postage, Uniqlo doesn't but arrived the next day after dispatch. I was...


FFVII The Maiden Who Travels The Planet Audiobook

Just a quick note to let the FFVII fans among you know that Joseph Purdy and the community of members from Thelifestream.net has finished one of their fan project audiobook recordings, "The Maiden Who Travels The Planet". It's one of the official stories that I translated a number of years ago and takes place after the PS2 RPG but before...


A New 5 Centimetres Per Second Site, Novel English Translation

I'm sure regular visitors amongst you will know how much of a fan I am of Makoto Shinkai's 5 Centimetres Per Second by now. After looking through how much information I've gathered about the movie, I thought this blog wasn't giving it enough space to organise so I've decided to create a sub-site for it to have all the content accessible in...


Wasp in the House ::

It's early summer which means it's the time you see plenty of bees and wasps busily buzzing around when you're out and about. Usually I avoid killing insects if I can just let them out the house but over the past day, a single wasp has been flying in and out of the window and hovering around the same spot... Curious to know if it was up to...


Public Transport Culture ::

Ken wrote a short post about the differences of public transport usage between Australia and Japan. I ended up writing a long comment so I thought I would write down my own thoughts and experiences here too ^^; He mentions no one tends to queue for the bus in Australia whereas in Japan, there are always orderly queues. In Scotland here, no...


Final Fantasy VII On the Way to a Smile Audiobook Project

I had a listen to the previews myself and the voice work, sound effects and music mastering are quite well done at this early stage. Not to mention it's collaborated over the internet which means more effort is needed to deal with the varying recording quality. I'm not part of the project but it's still exciting to hear my translations...


Chemistry - Our Story, Once Again ::

I didn't really like this song which happens to be the theme song for Valkyria Chronicles 2 but somehow it managed to grow on me even though I didn't listen to it repeatedly... Maybe it's because of the slow beat. It only comes on JPOP group, Chemistry's "Regeneration" album though (DFCL-1605-6) and not the official game OST. Lyrics...


A Lost Duck? ::

Here's something you don't see everyday. Since when did ducks perch on roofs or bushes instead of swimming in ponds or wandering on the ground? Must have been lost or something. Never paid much attention about ducks but this one got me curious whether they can get lost or not so I did a little reading. It looks like it could be a "Rouen Duck...


Picking Earphones and Speakers, A Guide to Better Audio

I've read, experimented and learned a lot about audio since upgrading my home speaker setup to a surround sound one and switching my pre-packaged earphones to better quality ones. So, I thought I would share the information I've gathered so that more people can enjoy their favourite music (and perhaps movies too) at its best. Ive...
