You Dumbass!
Regarding the Hiatus
So, I'm sorry guys for the pretty much unannounced two-year hiatus! o_x If you want to hear an interesting story about the release of Tafel Anatomie, me having been deathly ill, and the irony of "Phantom pain", then hit me up. Ahah.

I should be posting some new translations soon here at d_info! As mentioned, I've been recovering from a freak illness/injury/prophetic symbolism(?) recently, so there hasn't been much time for translation. Thankfully, there were a bunch of lyrics and interviews I had started back in `06 that were left in various states of completeness, so at least I have something to work from.

I do have other responsibilities now, but I promise will try to find time to finish some more translations!

Requests & Affiliations
Anyway, needless to say, Requests will be closed for a while. I do have a rather large list of items I'm working on right now, so it's just not practical for me to be accepting requests. If it's just a paragraph or so though, I will consider it, depending on how important it would be for the community.

And I am now starting to accept affiliation requests! Please stop by the Affiliation Page for more info and to apply.

Just a note - I am not looking for people to maintain D Info with me. This is a place where I post my own translations (and a select few others that I can't seem to figure out who authored), so needless to say this is a personal venture and I am not in need of another translator. Thank you!

Now that announcements are out of the way, here is what's new:
What is to come very shortly:
  • LYRICS: Phantom pain
  • LYRICS: Shuushuuka (The Collector)

I know! I was VERY pleasantly surprised in happening to find that article, and a friend has been kicking my ass to finish it up. XD So hopefully it won't be long until I find some free time!
(I definitely want to find more of his Cure Personal Corner articles from long, long ago...)

And thank you~ I'm going to try my best to finish and post at least one item per month!

I looked back through my old issues of Cure and found Personal Corner articles from Ruiza (vol. 28 and 33) and Tsunehito (vol. 35), but alas, no Asagi. If you're interested in these ones, though, I'll be glad to scan them for you. ^_^ (... and I'll scour my friend's stash next time I'm at her place. *grin*)
