  • Gender: Masculine pronouns are fine.
  • Location: North America, Eastern Time Zone
  • Native language: American English
  • Japanese language proficiency: Somewhere between negligible and very poor, so please double-check any significant translation-related edits I make, if you happen to be fluent. (Don't worry too much, I try to err on the side of caution...) My knowledge of Japanese grammar is probably at less than a first-year level by now, but I do still know how to look up most unfamiliar vocabulary, aside from slang or archaic words. Comparing results from seven different free online machine translation engines can also be slightly helpful at times, given a rough awareness of their limitations.
