This community is completely dedicated to translations and transcriptions of fanbooks/artbooks from different anime and manga series. I've found that I've collected quite a few fanbooks from different series, though they're all in either Japanese or Chinese. Having all the information in one place would be nice, no? Hence this community. ;) Please note that my translations aren't the best. I'm doing this partially as practice~. Expect translations to come from a variety of series.

Posting access is restricted. Please leave a comment at the volunteer post if you wish to gain posting access. I encourage others to share translations here! In fact, it would be much appreciated.

Only posts containing translations of fanbooks/artbooks or transcribed information from fanbooks may be posted. If you have questions about what's appropriate to post, please ask here.
Posting format:

Please place all translations under lj-cuts, separating each page that's been translated from the original either by a separate post or by a separate lj-cut. Please tag all entries appropriately by series.
Anyone is free to join/watch this community. If you wish to help (translating, donating scans, transcribing, etc.), please leave a reply at this post.
Regarding reposting information from this community elsewhere:
Information found in this community is not to be reposted elsewhere unless the translator/transcriber of that particular portion gives permission. So please ask for permission first and it may be granted. Credit must be given.
Fanbooks that might possibly be translated:
Here's a list of fanbooks that I personally have (so I might eventually get around to translating parts of these. Only parts!!). Anything help with translating is appreciated. :) If you know whether any of these have been translated or released in English, do let me know.
