Pocket Monsters: The Animation - Table of Contents

Hey there! Here on this blog, I plan to provide translations of the obscure "Pocket Monsters: The Animation" novels, written by Takeshi Shudo, head writer of the original Pokémon TV series. Updates may likely be infrequent as I'll post them "whenever they're ready" and this is a side project to my current major translation project. Anyway, I hope you please enjoy these novels and feel free to provide feedback in the comments sections.

Wow, did you meet Rica? That's wonderful! *-* I'm an huge fan of her, I wish I will be able to meet her too someday xD Anyway congratulations for your life changes! Don't worry and take your time for the translation of the novels! =)
I would like to ask you something else, i'm a member of the staff of an italian site called "satoshipedia", it is all about Ash and contains some information about the novels too (thanks to your work we will update it soon with new information); we put many efforts on it and the main goal of the site is to spread true and verified information about Ash and the Pokémon anime, to disprove most of the rumors and insults concerning him, as the one of his age.
We have also created an english version of the site but, during a conversation with the founder, we thought that it could be a good idea to create also a japanese version of it. The fact is that actually we don't know anyone who is able to translate into japanese and we were searching someone. I was wondering if you could be interested in becoming a member of the staff and help us by translating the articles in japanese. We are not in a rush so don't worry if you don't have too much time to spend on it at the moment, for now it would be great to just find someone who can do that. If you are interested feel free to ask anything, and if you want i can give you a contact with the founder of the site, so you can have a chat with her, she is a really nice person =) thanks for your time and sorry if I made some mistakes in this message, i'm still improving my english xD
