Well, let me see. I'm a community college student (not because of lack of money or ability, just because I don't want to move onto full college yet), I currently have no major but will probably major in linguistics when I transfer, with a possible double major or something in foreign language... Yes, I like languages, they're really easy to learn (...for me at least, people always think I'm weird when I tell them how easily I learned Japanese...), as well as really fun. ^^ I'm not fluent in Japanese, but I am very good at the language. I have yet to take the JLPT, but I plan to take the level 2 test this year, I just need to read over the material to make sure I'm ready. I also know a decent amount of Latin, as well as small amounts of Spanish, French, and Italian. If you need help with any Japanese translation or anything, just leave me a message on my talk page (or contact me any of the places I listed below), I'll get back to you as soon as I can. ^^
In my free time, I enjoy studying languages (yes, I'm obsessed, I know. XD), reading, and playing video games. In the past I read a lot of novels, but I've recently moved on to reading manga instead, to practice my Japanese. Currently, I read One Piece (obviously), 鋼の錬金術師 (Hagane no Renkinjutsushi, Fullmetal Alchemist), and DOGS/Bullets and Carnage. I've also been planning on reading 銀魂 (Gin Tama), D. Gray-man, and Death Note, but I've never gotten around to it... ^^;; I do watch anime, but I prefer reading most of the time, so I do that a lot more often. ^^ As far as games go, I mostly play the "Tales of" RPG series. It's really good, I suggest it if you like RPG's and need a new game to play. ^^ The English versions are even pretty good, as long as you don't get Tales of Destiny, Tales of Destiny II, or Tales of Phantasia... XD I've currently got... well, I'd list 'em, but it's too many to list here, so I'll just say that I've got almost all of the games. XD
I am a fansubber; I still am the translator for Gerusama, but since the group is mostly dead, I've moved onto other things for the moment. I've joined a new group, Vegapunk Fansubs, that started on [[Arlong Park (site)|AP]] recently. It seems to be rather popular, lots of people seem to enjoy being able to do soft subs for some reason. So, I'll be with them a while. ^^ I've also done some stuff solo; I've posted it to YouTube, my username is listed below. I'm going to be subbing the Tales of Symphonia OVA along with some members of a "Tales of" forum I'm on, but as there's no release date yet, I don't know when that will be.
Projects[edit | edit source]
- Grand Times- Translating currently. Once I'm done it'll be posted to the [[Talk:Grand Line Times|talk page]], so someone else can work the info into the article.
- Editing- Well, someone has to do it. I'm going to go through all of the pages created (yes, all of them), and make sure they all have proper spelling and grammar. I'm also making sure they're all categorized correctly and have appropriate links, as well as classifying any and all stubs as such. I don't know how long this'll take me; I've currently gotten up through the "G" articles.
- Chapters- After I'm done with the first two, this'll be my next project. Since I've got all the tankoubon released in Japanese, I'll be going through and doing all the chapter pages. It's a big project, but I think it'll be kinda fun. ^^
Where else you can find me[edit | edit source]
- Wikipedia- Murasaki Seiko (I mostly hang out on the CP page, although I also am the one who created the Galley-La page, I've contributed a few pics here and there, and I edit the other One Piece pages occasionally)
- LiveJournal- Murasaki_Seiko (Not on too often, but that's still my username. XD I mostly stick to the One Piece community and the Tales of the Abyss community, although I do read some others as well.)
- AIM- Murasaki Seiko (I'm on sometimes to talk to friends, but not all that often)
- Tales of Mana- Murasaki (this is my Tales of forum I mentioned above, it's not that big, but I'm the root admin, if you're interested in the series just come on by. ^^)
- Kaizoku-Fansubs- Kyasarin (I used to be Murasaki, but my account got deleted for mentioning other fansub groups. -_- I'm not too active, but I do post occasionally)
- Arlong Park- Murasaki (Not super active, but people seem to know me, which is cool. Mostly I answer people's questions in the Gerusama forum, but I've also posted chapter and spoiler translations in the past, as well as helping people in the video and music request topics when I can. I don't participate in many discussions, though, because they're either A.) started by idiots and are stupid to post in, or B.) started by intelligent people and are, therefore, much more interesting for me to read than actually participate in.)
- MapleStory- Kyasarin (4* Cleric, Scania), Asshurin (1* I/L, Scania)
- E-mail- if you really need to email me, you can contact me at either eeveenorton AT yahoo DOT com or murasakiseiko AT gmail DOT com (obviously, removing the spaces and adding in the appropriate symbols). Make sure you put something like "One Piece Wiki" in the subject line, or I might not even read it. ^^;;
- YouTube- jyaburadaisuki (I try to keep this secret, 'cuz it's funny to see people try to figure out who I am, so please don't mention this off of here. XD I also have an LJ account to match. This is the account I've used to release the Mugiwara Theater shorts, as well as episode 286.)
And... that's about it. XD
