A semi-translator joins the ranks!
« on: October 05, 2011, 04:14:13 am »
And when I say semi-translator, I mean I'm contributing to the Idolmaster SP project, currently working on Yukiho's path. I started a couple years ago, quickly dropped it due to school, and started on it again recently due to finishing school. Figured it was about time I make my presence known on the forum >_<

Personal Info:

Real Name: Jen, but if we go by producer names, call me AkiP, lol
Sex: Female
Country of Origin: USA
Age (upon joining): 3 days shy of 25
Hobbies: singing (of course), sewing (mostly cosplay), reading, cross-stitch embroidery, and JRPGs (mainly the "Tales of" series)

=Q&A=

Q: How did you come across this site?
A: Through working on the Idolmaster SP translation project.

Q: Why did you join this site?
A: The ability to discuss translation quirks and queries with others working on the project, and also to read about im@s stuff with other fans.

Q: Do you play it?
A: Haven't yet, but now that school is done and I have *slightly* more free time (and the possibility of getting a better paying job at some point), I do plan on at least getting one of the SP games, and hopefully Idolmaster 2 for PS3.

Q: Do you wish you could play it? (Ignore this part if above answer is "Yes")
A: Of course! If all goes well, I will soon ^_^

Q: Who is your fave idol?
A: Used to be Yukiho, because I was a lot like her. Then I went to college. Now my favorite is Ritsuko... because I am a lot like her. XP (I even wear glasses!)

Q: Why is your username "AkinaSumora"?
A: That's my username on a lot of sites. I kinda entered it out of habit when I registered here, but then again, it's my name on the Idolmaster SP translation wiki page, so that way I will be known as the same person.

Q: What are you in to right now?
A: Writing, or I would be if I had time to write. More like making up stories in my head that I don't have time to write down physically. Lots of things inspire me...

Q: What is your motto?
A: If you really want something, first decide if you need it. Then, keep trying until you get it.

Q: Who's your favorite singer(s) right now?
A: It's a tie between Kalafina and Ali Project.

Q: What are you up to right now?
A: Listening to some random im@s mashups while trying to convince myself I should go to bed in the next 10 minutes, or else I'll be up for another 2 hours searching for im@s stuff and then I will be cranky at work tomorrow morning. T_T

Q: Do you have any expectations from this site?
A: Only that I enjoy myself while reading and posting about something I like a lot. (And hope that no one bashes any im@s cosplay I might post in the future...)

=== Other Stuff ===

My younger sister is also a fan of Idolmaster. Her favorite idol is Miki and she likes to brag to me that she's memorized more of the game songs than I have. Maybe I would have too, if I had gotten into the games BEFORE I finished high school. You know, when they weren't invented yet. Wow I feel old...

Anyway, nice to meet you all, yoroshiku onegaishimasu and all the other stuff the idols say to their new producers!

Yeah, keeping up your Japanese is kinda hard when you can't, well... go to Japan, isn't it? I guess that's what video games, anime, and manga are for... ^_^

Speaking of which, maybe I should go back to the manga collection and finish translating something myself.

Welcome AkiP!

Your producer name sounds familiar...maybe I'm just thinking of someone else!

You are really too perfect for your favorite idol, Ritsuko.

@PinoyCruger: Arigatou! >_< Too perfect? How so? *is SO not perfect at anything*

@animagic4u: Maybe an actual producer of im@s MADs has the name AkiP or something. I like it because it's short for Akina, and it also means fall, which is when my birthday is.

@Cael K: I would very much like to go to Japan (and buy awesome merch I can't get here without paying twice as much). Also, what manga are you working on?

@Mind M@ster: I have a sister? (well I do IRL lol) yay~

Did Neue Green vol. 1 a long time ago (text only, I don't like spending the time to doctor images), so I was thinking that I should finish that series, at least. This week I'm a bit busy, so we'll see.

Hope you find translating Yukiho's scenario enjoyable! Maybe I'll peek in to see what's happening there every so often.

Hello. Welcome to P-iM@S!

Where's Aria? She's found her sister.

You called?

Welcome to the forums AkinaSumora!  I believe I was called your sister because i'm also an Ritsuko fan and because I act like her.  I have no need for glasses but I do own the official pair of Ritsuko's glasses and two extra pairs that are very alike and wear those(glasses look very nice to wear).

ANYWAYS, welcome to the forums and enjoy your stay here.  Watch out for Scotty.

Ah, fellow Ritsuko fan. That makes sense. Also lol glasses, that's awesome. I'm overdue for a new pair, maybe I'll try to get frames that look similar ^_^

Yay, thank you~

Better not anger the mod, in that case. I promise to keep my producing enthusiasm to a minimum!
