Since most of the front page was taken up by translation projects, I figured it would be best to make a master list sticky post instead of having each of the translation posts be a sticky. Here’s the projects I’ve worked on and their status:

This is the sixth and final piece in a series where I’ve translated the interviews with the staff in the Sound! Euphonium official fanbook. This has been a very enjoyable experience to translated the words from many people we don’t often hear from in anime production. I hope this has given you as a reader more insight into the various aspects of production of one anime series. This final piece has comments regarding production from various staff members from the backgrounds to the music production. Please enjoy this one last time. Continue reading
This is a surprising 5th entry in the series of interviews I’m translating from the Sound! Euphonium official fanbook published last week by Takarajimasha. It’s surprising because my original goal was to only complete the previous 4 entries, but the story felt unfulfilled. To that end, I decided to translate the final two pieces to complete the tale. Here is the interview with the person who oversaw all the episodes as animation director and designed the characters for the anime. Continue reading
This is the fourth in a series of posts where I’ve translated the various staff interviews about Sound! Euphonium from the official guidebook published by Takarajimasha last week.

It’s rare to hear from this side of production, so I hope you enjoy reading these comments from the people who make everything happen via arranging things together. Continue reading

In 1998, Shoji Gatou’s second novel series Full Metal Panic! began serializing in Fujimi Shobo’s Dragon Magazine before being published in their Fantasy Bunko label. This work became popular and so Kadokawa Shoten’s producer Atsushi Ito began work to have it made into an animated series. He was able to get two more adaptations created following the first series’s conclusion before the main novel series ended in 2011. In October 2013, Kadokawa celebrated the 15th anniversary of the novels by publishing a special Blu-ray Box that contained all 3 anime adaptations of the series. I’ll be reviewing that box while commenting on some of the previous releases. Continue reading
