In memory of Anastasia Moreno

Posted on: July 13th, 2015 by Shannon Fay No Comments

I just learned that Anastasia Moreno has passed away. Anastasia was a translator for Seven Seas Entertainment, the same manga publishing company that I do freelance work for. We’d worked together on several titles, including Girlfriends as well as Kisses, Sighs and Cherry Blossom Kisses. Out of all the manga I’ve edited, those two are two of my favourites. Part of that was working with Anastasia. Her translations were always clear but still full of character, and she was always quick and willing to clarify anything in the script. I know that several of the series she worked on were best-sellers, and I know for sure that they’ve brought a lot of joy to a lot of people.

When I heard that Anastasia was sick I thought of sending her an e-mail to say she was in my thoughts, but I didn’t. I thought it might be weird as we didn’t really have much contact with each other besides a few short work related e-mails. I really regret not doing so. If there is someone in your life who you are thinking of reaching out to, for whatever reason, please do so.
