  • Mood:


We had an unexpected detour after work today. Someone on the translators' mailing list we subscribe to works for FUNimation, and she posted to the list saying they're looking for translators. So of course we had to go apply. At first, I thought I'd just keep this to ourselves, because we're so used to confidentiality, and because we don't like telling people our plans when we don't know if they'll succeed, but then we thought it might be better to let other people know about it. So if anyone reading this is interested in translating for FUNimation, here's the link to apply! Good luck!

As for us, we think we have a pretty good shot, but you never know. Fortunately, we're busy enough right now that we probably won't notice if they don't email us back.

But speaking of our resume, we realized...maybe like a week ago...that sometime around now, or maybe like a week or a month ago, we hit our ten year anniversary as official manga translators! Woohoo! We should probably do something to celebrate, but who has the time to come up with ways to do that? Hmm...maybe I could actually celebrate and save time by reposting the posts we wrote up when we celebrated our 100th translation for TokyoPop, and maybe add some thoughts where applicable. Then we could continue the series and post about all the series we've translated since then. ...Some of them might be too far back to write anything substantial about them, but I guess we'll see.

Unless nobody's interested, in which case, we probably won't see, because we won't go to the effort of trying.

In other news, Disney continues to destroy everything we love. ...Okay, so we might be exaggerating a little, but arrrrrrgh. We refer to the character designs for the recent series of Mickey Mouse cartoons. Since when was it okay for Mickey & Friends to look like Ren & Stimpy? Ew.

Today I'm thankful for the chance to apply to work for FUNimation, having plans to resume our Doctor Who viewing, making good progress on work today, probably having time to play Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days, and ThinkGeek shipping confirmation emails.
