1. Who are Janne Da Arc?
Janne Da Arc is a Japanese Rock Band. It consists of five members: yasu (vocals), you (guitar), ka-yu (bass), kiyo (keyboard), and shuji (drums). 2006 actually marks their 10th anniversary since their formation in Hirakata, a small suburb of Osaka. There's more to say about them than could ever be answered in a short FAQ question, but there's the basics for you. I'm guessing if you're here, though, you already know about them enough to enjoy their music at least a little bit, so good for you. Currently, they are pursuing solo projects. For more information on Janne Da Arc, you may visit their Wikipedia entry, which I laid the framework for; though others have since added more material. Please visit my links section for more Janne Da Arc related webpages, though unfortunately there are not that many informational sites about them available in English.
2. Can I use your translations on my site?
As far as lyrics are concerned, in part, I may consider it (please direct inquiries via email), but please do not reproduce my whole translations. You are welcome to link to this site, and if you do take even partial translations, please be nice and give me credit for them.
3. What is the best way to contact you?
Via email (firstname.lastname@example.org), or via my LiveJournal. If sending email, please be sure to put something relevant in the subject heading (Like "Translations Question", etc.) so that I'll actually read it if it gets trapped in my spam filter. I largely prefer email for questions related to this site, but if for whatever reason Livejournal is the only way you are able to contact me (or you have an account over there), I'm willing to take questions there as well, in moderation.
4. Where else can I find you?
I'm most often roaming around LiveJournal. There's a wonderful Janne Da Arc community there that I moderate here.
5. What other translation projects have you done?
I've worked a little bit with SugizoLOVE.com, I currently have an ongoing translation of kiyo (keyboardist of Janne Da Arc)'s blog posted here, and I recently started an ongoing translation of you (Janne Da Arc's guitarist)'s blog here, as well as shuji's blog here.
6. How do I link you?
Just put a link on your page's links to http://www.papersnow.net/kiku/! Check the Links page of this site for buttons, if you like to use those. Also, drop me an email when you do. I like to see what kind of people are enjoying my work enough to promote it (and it keeps me motivated to do more)!
7. Will you link me?
Generally, if your site has something to do with Janne Da Arc, I will (there just aren't that many sites on them out there!), but any other sites than that, and I suppose those sites, too, fall under my discretion if I want to link them or not. Either way, send your site my way if you think I may want to link to it, and I'll be glad to take a look at it.
8. Will you do a translation for me?
If it's Janne Da Arc related, swing it my way, but know that I do have a method to my madness, so if you ask me to translate something, I probably won't get to it right away as I'm generally busy with a project whenever I have spare time. If you can send me high-quality, readable scans, it's a possibility. After all, I love my work!
9. Why is there no translation, romaji, or kanji for Jesus Christ or MISTAKE on this site?
When Janne Da Arc released their remastered edition of their indies album CHAOS MODE, the lyrics for those two songs were not printed in the lyric liners out of respect for the wishes of yasu and ka-yu, who wrote the lyrics. Though there is kanji available for these songs elsewhere online, you will not see a translation of those two pieces here until Janne Da Arc has officially released the lyrics, for the sake of not only accuracy, but also out of respect for their wishes regarding these lyrics.
10. Where can I find Janne Da Arc bandscores/sheet music?
The site with the most bandscores in stock is HMV, however, sometimes J-xyz also stocks them. Occasionally, sheet music will also be published in magazines like GiGs or Songs, but these usually only include one or two songs per issue, and are fairly rare after the release date of the song in question. There's also bandscores on ebay some of the time, but in my experience these are just as expensive, if not moreso, than just buying them directly.
Any other questions you think I forgot? Send them my way!
