I don't know if you have discussed this before on your tumblr but what is you absolute favorite Dir en grey song?
I thought about this for several days after receiving this message, and I’m still not sure what the right answer is. “The Final” was my favorite for a long time, but now… I think I have to say “The Blossoming Beelzebub.” I like the dynamic changes and the way it grows and shrinks as it tells its story about transformation.
Can I just tell you how grateful I am that you take the time to upload all these scans and translations? Really, it makes me so so happy to be able to read them! Thank you very much for your hard work! Keep it up, please :).
Aw, thanks! Sometimes it’s hard to find the time, so I appreciate your patience.
Hello ^^ I just wanted to ask, do you intend to finish Jigyaku? I would deeply appreciate even just transcriptions of the Japanese poems atm, I find that book so hard to navigate! Sorry if you've already answered this question previously. :)
I do indeed intend to finish Jigyaku. Since there is only one poem left in the book, it shouldn’t have taken me this long. I’ll move it up in my queue of things to work on.
I miss your translations and still look forward to them. I am eager to read any from the Massive vol. 3, so I hope you have not given up on that!
I haven’t given up translations, I’ve just lost all my time and a lot of my computer access. Massive vol. 3 is still on the back burner, but I’m looking at the interviews in the back of Greed right now. They’re just simpler than the Massive interview is.
