About

Welcome to Manlyflower Translations.

As you might’ve guessed, I’m Manlyflower, an American living in Tokyo. This website is where I put my public Japanese -> English translation projects.

For the most part, I work with Japanese fiction. I like almost everything—from old-fashioned literary fiction all the way to genres like science fiction and horror, even the occasional light romance. When it comes to light novels, I tend to prefer a relaxing low-stakes mystery.

You may have seen some of my work on Baka-Tsuki, but this is my official website. You can find almost all of what I translate here.

If there’s anything you want me to translate or you simply want to have a nice talk, send me a message through the Contact Me page and I’ll try and get back to you as soon as possible. If you absolutely want/need something translated, please send me a request after referring to the Commissions page.

Thanks for visiting, and happy reading.
