Who is our translator?
Hi, I’m hikaslap. I do all the posts on this website at the time of this writing. However, if you look at our “About” page, you’ll find that I’m not the translator. I’m merely his editor. But there’s more — I don’t know who the translator is. I don’t think anyone does. He generally updates weekly, which shows that he’s responsible, but I get little else from him besides feedback for my edits. And NanoDesu’s investigations into his affairs turn up irritatingly empty handed, as do my own personal investigations.
Somehow, I was assigned to this enigma of a creature. And even more befuddling, he has trusted me to be his mouthpiece! However, he (it?) is not one of many words, so most anything you read here will be mine, rather than his. Team Grimgal, (myself and castor212), properly also includes this translator, but how to credit him?
In my mind, I dub him the Translator of Mystery. TOM for short.
Gradually I swear I will uncover more about this mythical beast. And I will share my findings and speculations with all you dear readers. He thinks I can’t touch him. He simply allows me to do as I wish, believing in my inferiority.
As you see, he underestimates my integrity, and the determination of the human spirit. You’ll see, TOM. I’ll catch you yet, and you’ll regret letting me have my way.
