Otome’s Way

Otome’s Way

Audio recording complete!

Recording 01

Popping in to let you guys know that we’ve finally finished recording all of the dialogue and bits of audio accompaniment that’ll be included in A Fujoshi’s Guide to Japanese! Woohoo! We’re one step closer to being ready to release this first of hopefully many volumes now!

We managed to snag a few sneaky shots from inside the fabulous recording studio in trendy Daikanyama, and according to TPTB, the finished product is ‘amaaaaaazing’. Psyched to hear this bad-boy? Same here! Now that recording is finished, the next step is to finish editing everything to perfection and getting it prepped for launch! The wait’s almost over everyone!

Recording 02

On the left here, you can see the wonderful Azuma-san, the man behind Otome’s Way (yes, man!!) who’s looking on to make sure everything goes well (as well as lending his substantial vocal talents to the production…!). We’ll be introducing him to everyone in the near future, so we hope you stay tuned!

Until we meet again…!

A little audio to whet the appetite…

We let you know yesterday that the wait was nearly over to get your grubby hands on A Fujoshi’s Guide to Japanese, as our esteemed voice actors wrapped up their recording for Volume 1–and we’re here now to give you just a little taste of the fun headed your way!

Get your first introduction to Alexis and Shou right here! Enjoy the short audio clip (Japanese-only, of course!), as Alexis expresses worry about being asked by his father to rendezvous in Japan–as he doesn’t know any Japanese!

Transcript:
Alexis: “って!ぼく日本語とかなにもわからないよ!”
Shou: “では・・・日本にいくまえに すこしおべんきょうを しておきましょうか”

Translation:
Alexis: “W–wait, I don’t understand a WORD of Japanese!”
Shou: “Then, shall we study a bit of the language before embarking?”

This is but a smidgen, a mere taste of the content that’ll be included in Volume 1 of A Fujoshi’s Guide to Japanese–you’ll get pages of dialogue between our intrepid pair of protagonists along with dozens of vocabulary words as well as pronunciation support for our kana charts. You can’t go wrong with this guide!

Almost time!

We’re finalizing the English interface for our store and hope to be able to introduce everyone to the first titles from OW in the next couple of days, but just to make the wait a little sweeter, we’re releasing even more audio teasers for A Fujoshi’s Guide to Japanese!

Transcript:
Shou: アレクシス様。
Alexis: ん?
Shou: そのえがおは どこへ いっても かわいいですよ。
Alexis: え・・・あ・・・ありがとう。

Translation:
Shou: You know, Master Alexis…
Alexis: Hm?
Shou: That smile of yours is endearing, no matter where you go.
Alexis: Well…Ah… ありがとう.

We’ll also be sharing a word from OW’s head, Azuma-san shortly, so look for his message soon!

Meet Azuma-san!

The time has come…for everyone to meet the man behind Otome’s Way! Azuma Heyta-san, our head and representative of Otome’s Way, put together a short introduction video while he was recording lines for A Fujoshi’s Guide to Japanese (yep, that’s right! He’s a voice actor as well and will appear in the book’s audio!). We’ve added helpful subtitles to aid him in sharing his vision of OW’s future with our supporters, so give it a view!
