NDK 2015 - Day 1

Hi everyone! The first day of Nan Desu Kan 2015 has come and gone, and it has been a great day.  The new hotel seems to be working out great so far, and the new, larger Artist's Alley is filled with all sorts of cool artists.  I went to Opening Ceremonies, since it tends to be a good opportunity to meet the guests, and get a better idea of what they look like in person.

Later, I went to Jan Scott-Frazier's panel on Translating Anime and Manga.  Jan has 14 years of experience in the animation industry including as an animator, writer, and translator.  She discussed some of the basic concerns that any translator has when they approach a work, whether it is Beowulf or Lupin the Third.  Then, she discussed some of the particularities of translating Japanese works into English.  Overall, the panel was informative and entertaining.

 And Steven!
