Correct me if I'm wrong, but I've always seen kanji as chinese integrated into japanese language. Maybe 80% of the time japanese kanji has the same meaning as chinese characters so I could maybe help out with that?

That'd be really awesome if you will become a translator for us. But of course, we need to get more staff for another manga, but you can definetly help out. Smile

It'll be difficult to collaborate on such a thing, but you can try.

I believe Both Chinese and Japanese Kanji are the same, but both have different meanings. I think o.o

Well, lets just say that both traditional Chinese and Kanji are based on the same original language... though Kanji is older. Their meanings are the same for the characters, its just that the pronunciation is different(I'm stating the obvious :l).

Wait....what? How is kanji before traditional chinese if kanji is BASED on traditional chinese...? And though the pronounciation is different(yes obviously...haha) usually(again not always but most of the time) the meanings end up being the same between kanji and traditional chinese.

No, I'm not stating that Kanji is BASED on Traditional Chinese, I'm saying that Kanji is based on a language that Traditional Chinese is based on, its just that Traditional Chinese is further down the line. I.e A->Kanji, A->B->C->Traditional Chinese. Thats just an example though, idk how far away Traditional Chinese is away from the language that Kanji was based on.

Wooooaaah after searching it up, i think you're right. I'm actually legitimately surprised that kanji came before traditional chinese. Then again trad. chinese is just a new way of expressing that "original language" i guess i should call it. I was just mixed up as to what the original language actually was. Whoops... What i found was
traditional chinese: 1946 with mao zedong
Kanji: 57 AD from china
I take back what i said. Chinese is just too broad of a language. You should just call chinese as a set of languages rather than a single language. Sure trad chinese is newer but many forms of chinese go back to the oldest forms of writing styles there is.

Oh. Traditional Chinese is that new? I though that the one that Mao Zedong came out with was Simplified Chinese o_O...
