Our little backstory…

Wonderland Translations is a project that began on the Wonderland Azumanga Daioh forums.  It started innocently enough with one person saying “hey, I am really excited about reading this manga but I can’t read it in Japanese,” and another person saying, “well I can, and I have the time to translate it.  If I do, you wanna do the graphical part so we can let other people read it, too?” And with that, Wonderland Translations was officially born. The translator already had a project or two he wanted to share, and then more people were roped in to help out after that.

We focus mainly on comedy and 4-koma manga series, but we’re not afraid to stray off that beaten path.  We’re not trying to do this for internet points or ad revenue or anything. We’re not elite scanlation experts, either, nor are we trying to be. This group came together because we just want to share these overlooked manga with an English-speaking audience.  People are enjoying the series we’ve worked on, and we enjoy the fact that people enjoy our work. Your enjoyment is enjoyable to us.  Enjoy!
