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...


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...


On the Way to a Smile Novel Translation Complete

And so, what is the moral of all those short stories or rather, what was the message Nojima was trying to get across...? It's probably along the lines of, "If you stay positive you will live a healthy life and be able to overcome anything - It will get you on the way to a smile." Actually, things are more easily said than done ^^; Hope you enjoy...


Case of Yuffie Translation Completed, Site Revamp and Thoughts

In "Case of Yuffie", Yuffie makes her way back to Wutai after separating with the others and was very excited about the welcoming party she was expecting to receive. However, things don't quite turn out that way as she learns the damage the Lifestream has caused around her home and is warned to keep what she has been involved in a secret...


Case of Nanaki Translation Completed, Thoughts

You can now read my translation of Case of Nanaki up on my other website FFVII Novels. Before anyone criticises my translations, I'd just like to point out that I'm simply sticking to as close to the original text as possible. Despite it's been almost 4 years since Kazushige Nojima wrote the last two stories of On the Way to a Smile, his...


A Peek Inside the FFVII On the Way to a Smile and Beast Player Erin Novels

Looks like I didn't have to wait long for my novels after all... Look what the postman dropped off this morning. EMS is expensive but you have to admit it really is quick - Quicker than air mail. Dispatched from HMV Japan and arrives in the UK the next day. I knew FFVII On the Way to a Smile is in hardback but, I didn't know the Beast Player Erin...


FFVII On the Way to a Smile Novel Out of Stock

Decided to put in an order for the Beast Player Erin and FFVII On the Way to a Smile novels since I couldn't get them while I was in HK but, it looks like I'm going to have to wait a while because Square-Enix is currently out of print so I will probably get a second batch copy like I did with Makoto Shinkai's 5cm novel. Oh well, at least HMV Japan...


7th Heaven Spotted in Town

Phew! It's been so hot and sunny the past few days here, almost rivalling that of HK! But look what I came across while I was wandering around town - "Seventh Heaven". Never noticed it before because I hardly pass by this part of town but I immediately thought of FFVII when I saw the sign. I doubt we'll find Cloud or Tifa here though because...


FFVII Advent Children Complete Postcard Book

On the back of each postcard, you'll find the wolf emblem for sticking an 80 yen stamp and a quote of the featured character in English. The postcard with Tifa in her Avalanche clothing was pretty amusing. The quote is, "Not until... He gets a lecture." I didn't know she meant that kind of lecture! Ouch! Then again, I think she changed her...
