Hello, I'm here to submit lyrics I've translated in my free time. I enjoy translation, but I am very poor at it and am sure I will have to ask for your help.

I've studied Japanese for about six years but only two years were college study. I lived alone in Japan from 2009-2010. I hope to be an artist. I study filmmaking and media arts.
Please take care of me.

Ossu.

Welcome to AnimeForum.com - It's always nice to have another translator on board, so we hope you enjoy your stay here. [

We have other translators that will be able to help you, they should be around here somewhere.

Thank you.
Pardon my stiff writing. It's an attempt to bring discipline back into my language use, which has become very lazy and largely incorrect.

Welcome to AF,
I like your choice of username lol.

Hope to be a artist?
You should show off some of your work in the Dazzle us and Fan Art sections of the forum.

It's quite alright, I have those moments here and there as well.

Actually, I'd like to ask you personally if you could translate a song to be put on here, since it's very scarce on the internet. ;o_o

Let me know the song information. I may not be able to find the kanji lyrics to work from or put together an accurate translation. But I can give it a shot.

Thanks Daken. I don't have any fanart to share, but I've linked my deviantart page (http://eyestrain.deviantart.com) in my profile if anyone is curious.

" Power " by " Pocket Biscuits ". I've listened to the song over and over, but I've yet to figure out what they're singing about.

I can give you the opening chorus now:
South wind, carry my overflowing feelings to that person.

The rest might take a little while. I'll do my best.

PS- Not to "Double Post", but I submitted a reply several hours ago and it still hasn't appeared. This has happened with a few other posts I've made.
Is such a long processing time usual? Are my comments being moderated because I'm new?

PPS- Wow, this comment went through without any moderation at all.
Maybe because the other comment had Japanese in it?

Thanks to you both.

I've noticed something about this forum. The forums and groups I visited seemed fairly inactive. Where is everyone?

"Yoroshiku Onegai itashimasu"
Yoroshiku Onegaishimasu is a phrase which means, "Please think favorably of me" or "Please be good to me", even "please take care of things". But it's almost always used when meeting someone for the first time as a kind of "nice to meet you".

The 'katakana' you ran into is actually kanji, a chinese character with set meaning (rather than a sound-only symbol with no meaning). 願い is a request, desire, wish, or favor.

Itashimasu is the keigo, or most polite form, of "shimasu". So instead of Yoroshiku Onegaishimasu, I used Yoroshiku Onegai itashimasu to express my respect for this forum and its members and my own humility.

Thank you for your welcome and keep studying! You don't need to know anything about keigo right away, but spend a little time with kanji (the 'alphabet' of chinese characters).
