This place is where I put all my translation attempts that I do for fun. It is also a place to tell a select number of people about my life (and it is up to them to read or ignore) because I lock almost all of my non-translation posts.
My interest in Japanese music and entertainment industry is very wide, but I would watch more for AKIHIDE, 嵐, and ACIDMAN related things. I also love Kato Shigeaki from NEWS for his writing and his duet with Koyama Keiichirou - they make excellent combi. I also like One OK Rock, Amazarashi, and 凛として時雨 and would sometimes translate songs from them, if I come across a lyric that cannot go out of my head; and for the no-so-commercial part, I LOVE LOVE LOVE to listen to utaite through NND. My favorite utaite are 蛇足 and ｋoma'n.
Outside the Japanese entertainment industry, I listen more to metal bands like Helloween, Edguy, Avantasia, Angra, Nightwish, Blind Guardian, and many others. I am also a fan of Stephan Eicher, Placebo, and God is an Astronaut.
As I've mentioned before, this is also my personal journal. So I'd rather not share it with too many people. I might not add you back. It's not that I hate you. But it's for your own safety because I tend to ramble about so many things that are totally not related to Japanese fandom.
More about me?
My first language is Indonesian, but I always feel weird translating to Indonesian... I guess I will only translate to English, even if Japanese is sometimes easier to translate into Indonesian. My Japanese is only on conversational level, and I don't really read kanji, so dictionary and rikai-chan are always overused during translation. English is not really my forte, even though I always say that it is my second language. Bear with typos and grammatical errors. I will be happy if you correct me.
