As always I like to inform my readers about any anime or manga events that are happening in my neighborhood.
The Japan Society will be hosting an event: Manga in America: How English Editions are born.
I was invited and I am totally attending. If you are near the NY area you should stop by as well. Hope to see you there.
Join us this May to learn how manga are transformed during their journey from Japan to the U.S. at Manga in America: How English Editions are Born.
At this panel discussion, editors from top manga publishers Kodansha Comics (The Ghost in the Shell, Sailor Moon), Vertical, Inc. (Nichijou, Chi’s Sweet Home) and Yen Press (Black Butler, Akame ga Kill!) illuminate the creative process of localizing Japanese content for the American reader. The talk will also include a live demonstration of the translation, editing and lettering process.
The talk takes place Wednesday, May 17, 6:30 pm at Japan Society and is followed by a reception.
