I'm Pepsiman, a freelance Japanese-English translator and founder of Tanpenshuu Translations. Sometimes I do it for fun and other times I do it to make my bank account slightly larger and be able to keep the lights on! If you're interested in hiring me for translation work, click on the "My Translations" link, which will take you to my portfolio that also details all the ways you can reach me! 「短篇集トランスレーションズ」という独立翻訳グループを設立したフリーの和英翻訳者です。お仕事にお雇いになりたいとお思いになっていらっしゃる方は以下の「コンタクト」か「和英翻訳集」というセクションで書いてあるアドレスでいつでもご遠慮なく是非ご連絡なさって下さい!


And here’s the complete and final version of the interview I’ve been translating with Persona series director Katsura Hashino about Persona 5, Persona 4: Dancing All Night, Persona 4: The Ultimax Ultra Suplex Hold, and Persona Q, now with all of the pages compiled into one place. As stated before, I apologize for not translating the last two pages until tonight; apparently I had an incomplete source for the original magazine scans, which has since been rectified. The Persona 5 interview has also seen some light corrections, mostly to remove any references to Famitsu upon being told by multiple kind readers that it was the official Persona magazine that actually conducted this interview.

Once again, huge thanks to Naotolan for stepping up to the plate and volunteering to handle the image editing work for the last two pages. It was an extremely huge relief to be able to just focus on translating and typesetting and I’m in your debt, duder. Seriously.

Should there be more illuminating interviews like this in the future that are published, I think it’d be reasonable to expect that I’ll scanlate those as well, but until then, this should be the last of my work you see on this one specifically unless it turns out I wrote everything in Al Bhed or something. Hope you have as much fun reading it as I did translating it. It’s been a crazy ride seeing this all blow up on Tumblr and elsewhere!
