Hey there. So, I’m sure you’ve noticed that despite my hiatus announcement 4 months ago saying that I’ll be finishing a few things and then stopping, nothing’s been out yet. The reason for that is simple – Koyomimonogatari. I want to get this guy out before I do anything else. The issue is that the person I had entrusted to completely overhaul the English of the existing scripts, Mashiro, had disappeared. I’d do it myself, but I know well enough that I don’t have the command of English to do it – even though English is my native language, editing is an art and I’m more of a math oriented girl. I’d still love to do Koyomimonogatari, so I’ve decided to ask the public for help. E-mail me at email@example.com if you can do any of the following:
1. Translate is Japanese -> English at high proficiency. The odds of finding someone willing to do this is a million to 1, considering I’ve been unable to even hire people (as in, pay $$$) to do it, but might as well ask.
2. TLC the existing scripts for episodes 2-12.
3. Edit the existing scripts for episodes 7-12. (Note that if you think “edit” means “correct 2-3 typos per script”, don’t bother. I’m expecting something like 90% of the lines needing to be rewritten).
I’m not going to be a stickler over jobs. If I can’t get a TLC but can get an editor, we’ll edit the existing scripts and put those out. Nobody else is ever going to do this properly, so we can only do the best we can so that the archiveable version out there is the best it can be. Also note that this is not a high-stress job, as there’s not really going to be a deadline, but you will be expected to give at least weekly status updates should you choose to work on it.
Mashiro’s back! Thanks for all who offered support, though. Also got somebody interested in TLC, so I’ll be following up with you~
