Ryan のブロッぐへようこそ!

Welcome to Ryan’s Blog!

People in the cyber world call me Ryan~
Female. Architect.
Loves Arashi and ONE OK ROCK

(and a bunch of other musicians, but they're too many to mention :p)

I do translations from Japanese to English. I used to do Arashi Discovery (Ohno's radio) on regular basis, but not anymore ^^ Now I just translate randomly whatever that attracts me. I write fanfictions. I'm self-taught in Japanese, and English is not my native language, so you know what to expect from my translations.

I love making new friends. So if anyone interested to add me, please feel free to do so, and you can leave a comment here so that I can add you back

I'm more active in wordpress (for personal blog) these days, but I no longer contribute anything to any fandom, hahaha...

Other things that I like:

Kanjani 8, other Johnny’s, Architecture-related stuff, Tadao Ando-san, Japanese language & culture, Linkin Park, Larc~en~ciel, BENI, FT Island, and a lot more, any good music, sketching people’s face (actually I’m tempted to sketch Arashi members but somehow I can’t find the courage to start it XD), good food, good stories, in short: anything good XD

A little bit more about myself, for those who's interested...

Hi! Since I've been reading your recent Arashi Discovery translations, I was wondering if I could friend you?

So, you were Nino baited, eh? Technically I was Jun baited, but I refused to have anything to do with his silly boyband until I watched Stand Up. Then, I had to check them out because that geek *cough*Nino*cough* surely couldn't be in a boyband?? Which makes me technically a Nino bait!

TMI, I'm sure, but anyway, even if we don't become friends, thank you so much for sharing your translations! ♥

hello inuhariko!
thanks for adding me~ I'm adding you back, too~ hehe...

really, Nino in stand up... never thought he would be in a boyband... moreover, never thought he's YamaPi senpai, and that he's older than YamaPi~ cuz on the age of 20 (as well as for now) he still looks like a highschool boy LOL

yoroshiku ne!

I was Ohno baited but I also like seeing Nino too (especially when there's Ohmiya moments XD)

I really hope I can be friend you since I love making friend with Arashi fans (because Arashi is the best thing that happened in my life... LOL XD)

My name is Eve ^_^ Yoroshiku ^_^

Hi, I enjoy reading your translations. Is it ok if I friend you? A little something about me, I was Jun's bait from Hana Yori dango and Gokusen, but now my ichiban is Ohno, although he's my ichiban, I still like all of Arashi. Yoroshiku.
~咲くRyan~ryan87ogawa on April 16th, 2009 02:35 am (UTC)
hello, tonari123~
sure, it's okay to add me ^o^
thanks for reading my translations, glad you enjoy it :)

Got here from your last post with so many translations *_* thank you, I'll make sure to comment when I read them. Thank you~<3
Hope you don't mind me adding you, I also love Arashi.

So you were baited with Stand Up? :D
I'm like most of the people.. HYD-baited, and then Nino caught my attention with his acting. Then I discovered Sho <3 But at the same time I always loved Ohno. Not to mention how much my love for Aiba grew while discovering him more.. so I feel the same as you.. I love them all the same in the end ^__^

thanks for leaving a message here :D

I'm adding you back, by the way, I hope u don't mind~
let's spread the Arashi love!!! XDD

hello ryan~
My name is Am, from Thailand.
I want to translate some of your english translation to Thai language for Thai fans. We've got many of Arashi fans here but quite alot of them don't understand Japanese nor English. If you allow me to do so, we'll appreciate so much! If you think I'm asking too much, please let me know :)
My Thai version will be on Multiply.
If I got your permission and once I'm done, I'll show you a link to my blog.
Oh credit is surely given and this is non-profit project!!!
~咲くRyan~ryan87ogawa on June 1st, 2009 01:51 am (UTC)
Hello Am~
sure you can!! Thank you for letting me know :D it makes me happppyyy~ &hearts
you can use any of my translations and you don't have to wait for my permission in the future ^_^
but please be aware that I'm not fluent in Japanese so there might be mistakes in my translations ^_^

anyway, I have a Multiply account, too, it's ryan87ogawa.multiply.com~ :D
I usually post my ramblings in Indonesian and mixed English there LOL

hi there ^^

i've been following your translations every week and i was wondering if it's alright if i add you as a friend? sorry if i sounded so stalker-like, lol, but i just love reading Ohno's radio talks <3

i see that you were Nino-baited too.. lol. i first noticed him from watching Yamada Taro Monogatari and after stalking him on youtube (and was also pleasantly surprised to know that his classmate in the drama, our Mr Sho Sakurai, was also in the same group Arashi), i saw the amazing Riida and fell in love with him <33

anyway, thank you so much for sharing your translations! really appreciate it ^^
~咲くRyan~ryan87ogawa on August 20th, 2009 02:33 am (UTC)

Where is your homeland? XD *just curious, though* hee~hee~

Hi! I saw..someone..posted that you had translations and stuff so I came and visited. I saw that you're such a big ARASHI fan and I was hoping I could add you as a friend as a fellow Arashi fan. Thanks for the translations too! I don't understand any Japanese and I live in the US so it's hard to get access to this stuff. Thanks so much again!!!

Arashi Discovery translations
I wanted to thank you for the Arashi Discovery pieces. I've been using them in combination with the Youtube posting of the weekly programs to expand my understanding of spoken Japanese. I really appreciate your efforts for us non-speakers and those of us learning! Doumo arigatou!

Re: Arashi Discovery translations
you're welcome!!
thank you for leaving a message :D
I am truly happy that my translation can be a bit help~!
A few years ago when I didn't understand Japanese at all, this kind of translations that people share were what helped me to improve. So now I want to do the same thing, even just a bit.
Translating stuff really makes me learn new stuff, too, and there are always kind people willing to correct and explain things to me when I make mistakes :)
