Happy New Year!

Posted: January 1, 2017

I wish you all a happy new year! Akemashite omedetou gozaimasu!, or simply Akeome! if you want to sound more trendy.

According to the Chinese zodiac last year was the year of a monkey. For us, this meant a year of progress, learning and evolving. I think we learned a great deal about the manga translation industry and got many valuable lessons about how to advance even further with our translation and lettering quality. We processed a record number of pages in 2016 and scaling up our processes felt like a great challenge, but thanks to our great team and our warm spirit, we did great! Big thanks to everyone who made this possible!

I wonder what 2017, the “rooster year” has in store for us… A lot of yakitori, I hope!
