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...


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...


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...


A New Layout for 2010 ::

Welcome to my site's humble new layout! So, how many of you managed to get the references I had during maintenance? For those of you that missed it, the message was... The site is currently going under mass operation. Hopefully it'll be back up before the dark hour ends. Everything went fairly smoothly apart from a few hiccups from the...


J-Drama, The Woman Who Never Compromises

Decided to watch some J-drama again for a change so that I don't end up just picking up Anime slang and miss out vocabulary that will actually be useful in everyday life - Should I ever end up in Japan. I think the last show I watched was Densha Otoko which was a long time ago. Anyway, after looking through the lists of shows that were airing...


Final Fantasy VII On the Way to a Smile Audiobook Project

Been about three months since I finally completed my translation of the official Final Fantasy VII On the Way to a Smile novel but, if you've still to read the 264 pages of text, maybe you'll want to check out TheLifestream.net's fan based audiobook project that's underway. I had a listen to the previews myself and the voice work, sound...


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...


Valkyria Chronicles, From PS3 Game to Anime

After watching Valkyria Chronicles, it makes me want to play the first game on the PS3 even more. The PSP sequel was a really enjoyable game. That's also why I got interested in this show partly because of the sequel's excellent presentation and wondered if the VC universe continues on with the story. Good to see that it indeed does and...
