Introductions. How do I begin?
I go by the nick of zgmfx09a.
Currently in university.
Started this site probably as a hobby.
What to expect from this site? I'll mainly be doing English translations from Light Novels that has been translated into Chinese.
This means that whatever you are reading undergoes two translations. Things may be lost in translation here. If you are particularly anal about it, close this window/tab now.
If you expect excellent grammar, then close this window/tab now too.
My aim is to ultimately share light novels that I find interesting to the English community. While I won't go to the stage of posting gibberish for people to read, ultimately, as long as the plot/idea gets across to the audience, I am done.
Currently, two of my friends are helping me with the grammar and stuff which I am weaker at. Alice and Drkmerc. I'll leave it up to them if they wanna introduce themselves or something. But yeah, this is not really a one-man-show now.
I am studying Japanese as my elective currently, but it is not proficient to the stage where I can read or translate. I can only work out simple sentences. So yeah. Chinese is my mother-tongue, which is the reason why this site exists.
You may ask why didn't I use Baka-Tsuki instead. I like my freedom here. Also, not sure if they will accept double translations, so whatever. However, they do offer better publicity, so I am not too sure how this will work out.
As for the frequency and speed of update, it all depends on how busy I am.
I may also use this blog to just do brief reviews on novels I've read (lots of incest stuff...), maybe some brief summary on titles I've no plans to translate alone (like Oreimo novels and stuff).
Just for the records, C.E. stands for Chinese->English. Also a small play on the Cosmic Era of Gundam SEED, because if you haven't realise, I am a Gundam fan.
Favourite light novels currently? Legend of Legendary Heroes and the Monogatari series.
So there. Hopefully you'll enjoy the stuff here.
