Resident Evil: Marhawa Desire

Videogame-based manga Resident Evil: Marhawa Desire‘s first volume is hitting the shelves this month around the world, and thanks to my favorite translation company Daruma I was in charge of the Spanish translation. The Spanish publisher is EDT (formerly known as Glénat).

This translation was a new experience for Daruma because, while we usually translate from trade paperbacks, there was none of those back then. So we translated every episode, some of them before even being published on Japanese magazine Shonen Champion, where they can be read before being put together in the trade paperbacks.

I love both videogames and manga, so I’m very happy to help make this available to Spanish readers. And the comic itself was a great surprise. I hope Resident Evil fans will like it. I think the Hollywood thriller mood the series is known for can be found in this manga.

During this year’s Barcelona Manga Fair, Planeta de Agostini launched its Spanish edition for Record of Lodoss Wars: La Bruja Gris, a manga adaptation for the pioneering Japanese heroic fantasy novel.

Translation was ordered to Daruma, and I was in charge of the first draft. I translated every balloon and onomatopoeia, and I think it’s thanks to Marc Bernabé’s revision and Daruma’s logistics that the result came out to be quite good.

I think this fantasy manga can be enjoyed by anyone older than, say, 12 years old, as long as they have any interest for in the fantasy genre.

It was a very good experience, as I read a lot of manga but I had never had a chance to help with manga publishing. I’m very interested in deepening communication and understanding between Spain and Japan, and I think with this kind of work I’m getting nearer to this aim.
