About: Mermaid Panic is a series of four light novels written by the famous manga author, Marie Koizumi. This series is also noteworthy because its illustrations were done by the series creator of Sailor Moon, Naoko Takeuchi. The story is a re-imagining of Hans Christian Anderson’s The Little Mermaid.
Challenges: This project’s challenge is its sheer size. There are over 800 pages of text, and each page is fairly dense. The translator must be adept in translating terminology related to the field of marine biology.
Results: This is a commission by one of our regular customers, and he has been so pleased with our work that he has paid us to continue all four volumes in this franchise.
