Foreword I must apologize to the fine folks at #Animenovel. This was my very first interview ever conducted over IRC and you may be able to tell I was feeling nervous and inexperienced. I even privatepaste’d my questions. I should have asked them one by one because they could have led to opportunities for follow-up questions. Yet all in all, it was a pleasure to have spoken to these guys because the team was so extremely easy to talk to.

Interesting Tidbits DarkOwl is also the editor for Tengu Translations and _mayoi hates being asked about lolis.

The Interview

_mayoi, DarkOwl

Interviewees: _mayoi, DarkOwl
<Aaerul> Why do you translate?
<@_mayoi> well, first to improve my translation skills and I find it funny that collaborating with these people is kinda fun too lol no offense, and since I’m a big fan of THAT GAME, It won’t be a bother to localize that game.

<Aaerul> Do you care for fan support? What about fan interaction?
<@_mayoi>Love is always accepted.
<@_mayoi>it’s not like we’re translating this for your sake… lol being a tsundere is moe

<Aaerul> Do you prefer to work alone or work with others?
<@_mayoi> well, being solo makes your outcome worse than the most, so being with a large or small scale of people is not really a bad thing.


<Aaerul> How large of a team are you most comfortable working with?<DarkOwl> any number is fine as long as it is organized.

<@_mayoi> with only me as a translator is ideal, and 2 to 3 editors… since there’s the fact that the flow of the translation will deteriorate..

<DarkOwl> Never exprience that before.
