    Hey guys!

    We're on the lookout for the next Ainushian superstar and that person could be YOU! If you've never heard about us before, we are primarily a Japanese - English translations group that endeavors to bring you more access to interesting light novels.

    Some of our more popular projects include:
    1. Loner and Juliet
    2. Ossan Idol
    3. Mob... Sore mo waki Mob (because it's BL, of course!)
    We also collaborate with other groups to introduce novels like:
    1. B1G1F (with Orange Translations)
    2. GG (with Orange Translations)
    3. Maou no Utsuwa (with Zmunjali x Infinite Novel Translations)

    This is what we're looking for this month (April):
    1. Translators
      Can you do J-E translations? Has your love for reading given you the thirst made you learn Japanese to devour more books? Are you interested to bring more unorthodox novels to the table? If you're a JLPT N4 or N3, eager to learn and improve yourself, hungry to be a part of a nurturing loving team, join us! We'll always be interested in you! Our schedules are flexible with a minimum commitment of one release per week. If this is something up your alley, come get in touch with me.

    2. TLC
      You are a grammar nazi and have often wondered, Why the deuce are people mistranslating? You have a keen eye to spot when a wrong tense is used or when some words are actually phrases translated literally. It's hard work like a translator but you're eager to impart your expertise because you know that Japanese is a tough language and everything is a learning process. If this sounds like you, come join us! We're desperately in need of people dedicate to TLC. ;o;)/

    3. Marketing/Public Relations/SNS Lead
      Have a flair for writing and a passion to lead a brand to success? A superstar at capitalising social media, you have a knack of coming up with creative ideas to spark conversations. We're looking for someone who can take charge of promoting us via Facebook, Twitter and other social media sites. If you've always wanted to help a translation group but unsure of what to bring, come help be our PR superstar lead!

    Just a head's up, Januva has announced that he will be dropping Ossan Idol.

    Is there anyone keen to pick this project up? We would love if there's anyone in the community who would like to keep this project running through us. Again, we have no fixed schedules as long as there's a minimum commitment of one chapter release per week. Minimum N4-N3 Japanese.

    Guys, new bump! We're looking for the following to assist us on a manga project soon. Note that this is likely to be a bi-weekly or monthly release for the manga project.
    1. Cleaners
    2. Redrawers
    3. Typesetters
    Also, still on the lookout for Translators and TLCs. Specifically looking for anyone interested to do more yaoi projects for us. (Because the fujoshi in me needs this). PM me for more details. Expected quota is one chapter per week.

    Edit: Filled positions have been struck off.

    Hey guys,

    It's me on another recruitment drive again.

    Our editors are back but we can seriously use another two more translators to give them some work to do.

    Looking for Chinese or Japanese translators keen to touch BL.

    Yes, BL. I'm seriously in need of some extra color on our site. (And personally to satisfy my own BL cravings).

    For Chinese, I've a bunch of projects courtesy of all the #danmei threads. HOHO~ So if you like any of those and keen to give it ago, join us! :D

    Perks: Editors, TLC-ers, *insert every other cookie jar and flexibility (min posting is once a week. More if you can manage it)*

    //is bored
    Bumping this up b/c why not, ah.

    I want to ask for certain areas of people to join here, but probably a bad idea considering this is for krizzy and I don't exactly look like I'm part of her group, haha.

    But yeah, we could really use some more helpers. If you're a CN Translator and looking for somewhere, well, don't worry about not having any resources at all just because Ainushi is a mostly Japanese group; we do have some decent CN TLs around (that's not me, I just exist).

    I did my part. If I'm still bored later, I may be back later.

    Upvoting.

    We currently have a danmei translator working on a project and could use a decent TLC-er.
    Our current TLC-er is swamped with IRL stuffs so if you can help us out on a permanent basis (or for the next two weeks), please PM me for details.

    Thanks.

    So I heard there was sort of public outcry about Ainushi losing their identity as the last vanilla battalion?

    Well, never fear. We'll still be vanilla all the way. (Our host projects aren't though).

    We're currently looking for the following:
    • JP Translator (To work on a shoujo project)
    • CN Translator (2 slots available - Shoujo romance only. Slots for danmei closed for now)
    If you're interested, please contact me via PM so that we can discuss further.

    Both JP and CN projects are super diabetic fluff sorts. So if you love a good fluffy happy ending straight romance, come join us! :D

    Hi guys, poking again for the above ^^^.

    I'll also like to add that @Agni is looking for a translator to collaborate with her on Loner and Juliet so that we can get the releases out faster.

    If you're a huge fan of the project and would love to help out, do get in touch with us.

    Thanks!
