See, the question is not one of people being willing to pay. The question is one of how much people are willing to pay. As I recall, several attempts have been made to organize people into paying for a translator, and I believe Vextor was even willing to be the one to do it. However, the efforts have all fallen apart due to bad organization. This has left me with the belief that one only has a couple of solutions. A) One can pay for a translator BY ONESELF or with a few VERY close friends. This would ensure that all the money was accounted for and the stuff subsequently got translated. B) One can translate Suikogaiden personally or with a few close friends. At any rate, this has the advantages that it is free and that it's your own fault if it doesn't get done. And I believe that that covers the viable options. Personally, I lean toward plan B. However, waiting on me would be a very bad plan due to the fact that soon I am going to drop off of the face of the planet for 2 years. Eventually, however, I do intend to translate it myself and a little help from my friends if it isn't done by then.
All life begins with Nu and ends with Nu. This is my belief. At least for now.
