Hello, I’m Motokare, of ‘Anata no Motokare.’ I named my translation site as a joke because I like BL and was looking to translate lots and thought the idea that my readers are reading something translated by their “ex” funny/punny… It ended up I didn’t translate a lot of BL, but the name stuck.
I post mostly about the FAN translations of manga and the occasional KPOP rant. In the future, I hope to be able to try my hands at translating essays or novels as well to challenge my translating skills.
The main reason I enjoy translating manga is because I love that I’m able to inhabit various characters when I’m translating. This is also why my translations spread across a lot of genres, though some do point out most of them still have the same underlying themes…(I get why people say that, but I don’t think so!) Also, for me, translating from one language into another is a kind of finesse, and I’m all about the finer points of it. Being able to keep doing it is really helping me learn the craft.
All that said, if you enjoyed what I’m doing here, please consider subscribing to my website.
