Thanks Facets as always!

I must say that I have grown to like Angel more and more lately. Maybe because I can relate to him - and can't wait for his story! I have always thought of him as important character  to the series - and oh boy if they fight side by side with Rin <3 Like in anime. It was the only good thing of the anime ending. I really can see Arthur actually accept Rin in the future, if Rin doesn't go to the evil side.

Or to beat his a$$.
Hmm... are the hearts in your eyes at the thought?

Really appreciating the translations. I have this book, but my Japanese is so shoddy I can barely read any of it (and kanji is the bane of my existence). I actually got it so I'd have something in Japanese to help me study (and I won't lie, the few color pages are nice), but maybe I should have gone for something easier. ^^;

The exact same thing happened to me when I got the Death Note character book back in high school. Character books are so...dense.

Me: This'll be fun! I'll already know what everything's about so it shouldn't be too hard! : D
Book: *lists all of the Death Note rules in like 8-point font with no furigana*
Me: : (

(I did eventually read the whole thing though, and it taught me a lot, so I don't regret buying it anymore!)

I think I was able to show a bit of his cruel side in the scene where they tortured the spy. This is going to be more relevant later on [...]
Uuuh, I'm curious now!

And thank you for translating!  :)

The character guide book and the Pocket Gallery are available in French! :D

America is behind, as usual.

People I know are working on translating it, but if you want to do the honors. :)

Frankly I'm surprised they brought it overseas at all!

Nah, I'm talking about an official publication.

I'd buy that thing the second I saw it in the shop.

When I think how the French publication is faster than the English one, I get really enthusiastic about learning French.

Je ne compte pas l'acheter, mais je pourrais aussi donner un coup de main pour la traduction de certains passages, si vous voulez (en attendant la traduction officielle ) ;)
(I don't intend to buy it, but I could help as well to translate bits, if you want (until the official translation is released))

Umm I realize my translating skills are not that great, but still. Could be fun XD

Maybe you could go to the questions thread and see if anything in there is in the guidebook?

so, I wrote on tumblr about it already, but I'm planning to scan the AoEx guidebook from cover-to-cover, might make having resources to find certain things easier I figure.

I know there are quite a few translations of things from it floating around (and I’ve read them) but just in case some other stuff that hasn’t been translated that might be important/someone found worth translating, and someone doesn't have access to it to translate it otherwise, I figure it’d be nice for me to help with that if I can.

not sure when I'll actually get around to doing this though, but I'll update once I do.

also because I'm scared of getting into trouble legally, when I do this the link will, unfortunately, have to be given privately ^^; (but I'll give it asap to anyone who needs it, otherwise there's no point in me doing this plus I'm not trying to be exclusive with the link, defeats the purpose of me doing this lol just scared of getting into trouble)
however, I don't care if you post stuff from it or whatnot once the link is given, because that has nothing to do with the link itself.

still find it unfortunate that I feel Viz is unlikely to ever do an official translation of the guidebook.
