Hello! I'm Sparrow. I've been self-learning in Japanese since around 2008, and visited the country twice - once for 2 and a half months from 2008-2009, another time for 3 months in 2011. I'm a fan of visual kei and other Japanese rock artists: first and foremost Kagrra, and Isshi's solo project, shiki∞project~志鬼陰謀~. I also adore THE VELVET, Satsuki, asobius, Plastic Tree, A(エース), Psycho le Cému, sukekiyo, and many more!

I've been translating Kagrra's lyrics and Isshi's blog since 2009 on Livejournal. After Isshi's passing in 2011, I made a website to host all of my translations pertaining to him and his work. I'm not an expert webmaster and not at all a graphic designer, but translating and maintaining my website dedicated to Isshi are two of my favourite hobbies and I've always been delighted to share my efforts with people who also continue to be interested in Isshi's writings.

Maintaining the site is a lot of work - as is the translating, of course! - and, as always, I'm thankful for the people who read what I post with every update because your continued presence encourages me to keep doing what I do. Seriously, you guys rock!

I decided to make a Patreon page to kind of put feelers out for people to support me in this hobby as I'm considering making a sister website to Demon Passion, where I'll branch out from Isshi-related translations into translations of other Japanese bands - mostly lyrics, but other relevant content as well! That project is in the works, but I'd like to buy my domain before that happens, and with your help I'll hopefully be able to get there! Thank you SO much to anyone who is willing to support me in this journey on Patreon, your contributions will help a lot!

My website content will always be free to view, but in return for supporting me on Patreon, my lovely Patrons will get to vote for what kind of content they'd like to see next and even request translations from me (no, it doesn't have to be Isshi or Kagrra related! though I do ask that you provide the material you're requesting me to translate)! Please check out the Rewards levels on the right and see if anything appeals to you!

And thank you, thank you, thank you!!!! to each and every one of you who reads my translations and keeps me going.

I love you all!
