Oh, he shared his email! I was going to ask him about the omitted description of lip peninsula. Do y’all have any other questions for a translator?

He is also active on Twitter:

I’m guessing Emily is an old name, and he still uses it for professional purposes. I’m not going to ask though, that feels squarely under “prying.” I did notice that he lists the name Tristan Felix on Twitter.

Eh, he talks openly about this:

Can you tell us about yourself?

I’m Tristan, a nonbinary trans guy (he/him) from Wisconsin currently living in Tokyo; I’m in the process of coming out this year and transitioning. So I still honestly don’t really know what I’m doing, but the idea right now is to continue publishing under my birth name, Emily.

Anyway, I’m looking forward for his explanation about lip peninsula :stuck_out_tongue: I wonder if he’ll even remember something so specific :grin:
Nice contact you got there ^^

Ah, and happy birthday~ :birthday:

Perfect. Asking is different than finding the info in his own words!
And thanks. For birthday wishes! I’m trying not to notice that my new age is a very unlucky number in Japanese culture! Oops, I just noticed it again.
