Here’s the list of translations and editorials that I’ve posted as part of a project that looks at how the anime we love are created and written. If you’re new to it, I recommend starting with my first editorial, where I compared the planning stage of the typical anime production with that of Avatar: The Legend of Korra. A more comprehensive collection of links to behind-the-scenes resources can also be found right here on this blog. I hope you find this project interesting and informative, and that you will join in the discussion on anime production here and elsewhere!
