I'm lucathia, the current head translator here at PR!
My favorite Yu Wo series is Legend of Sun Knight, followed by Kill No More and GOD. I'm very fond of fantasy stories. The first Yu Wo series I read was 1/2 Prince, which I started reading because I was looking for genderbenders. I really like the humor in Yu Wo's series. I'm excited about Illusions, Lies, Truth and Dominion's End and can't wait to see what Yu Wo is planning for them.
When I'm not translating, I like to write fanfic. :)
I'm raylight, also known as Ray. I'm one of the translators here at PR!. You may see me around rather often, since I'm also one of the facebook admins and post on the staff blog rather regularly. I have been in PR for about 5 years now (How time flies!) and currently focusing my attention on finishing up The Legend of Sun Knight, helping to translate No Hero and Illusions, Lies, Truth, and doing some random other stuff.
I'm also running a Q&A thread along with a FAQ in the General Site section, so feel free to ask questions there too.

Hi all, I'm Doe!
I'm just a random reader who has been following this site for a few years. My favorite Yu Wo series is...um...most of them? I love Legend of the Sun Knight, Kill No More, 1/2 Prince, No Hero, and Gong Hua. Currently, I've been translating a Spanish epic fantasy novel as a hobby in my spare time, but I'm sure I'll run out of steam in a couple weeks. I'm really into languages and have basic conversation/writing skills in both Spanish and Japanese. I once tried to help translate a chapter of Ark on Japtem, but it took me way too long to do even one section, so I gave up.
I'm a reader as well as translator. To make it more clear I'm translating Yu Wo from english into my own. Had been doing it for... 3 years? Wow! Even I'm surprised! Basically all PR! translators are like gods to me! No less then God of Light himself!
I first came to know about Yu Wo novels (and light novels in general) when I lost patience after finishing the manga adaptation of 1/2 Prince. My favorite one is Legend of the Sun Knight followed by No Hero. I'm looking forward to Illusion, Lies, Truth and Dominions End since I have a hunch that I'll definitely like those as well.

I am The Book Girl. Greetings from the dark side!! (Whoever said we haIve cookies lied. We ran out a long time ago.)
I, as I suspect many other loyal readers have done, started with OddSquad stuffs, though I admit I've only read the HP manhua. I've been reading PR stuff for longer than I can remember. I know it's been years, but it feels both like it's been forever and like it's been no time at all.
A few basic things about me I feel necessary to share: 1. I tend to be long-winded. I have had friends on DA stop comment chains because they didn't want to respond to everything I had written. 2. I love reading, writing, drawing... and I do a lot of it myself. I'm very open about the stuff I read, write and draw, and I like finding new stuff. -hint- -hint- 3. I'm kinda shy... I get nervous about posting stuff sometimes, but it's not like I'm unfamiliar with the people here. I try to read the comments and... well, I try to read everything posted to PR, but it doesn't always work out. Please note that above all, I am always loyal to LSK and NH, reading the chapters as soon as I know the translations are up.
(Well, I did say that I'm long-winded...)
Some people say that love is the universal language. I think books are far more "universal." Many times, your feelings are only known to select few, but literature transcends even language boundaries. One love can be known to few, but one book can unite hundreds, if not thousands--and on some occasions, even millions. Reading is a road to understanding, and it can pave a path to meeting new and wonderful people. That is why I read.
Hello hello I'm Kyuutan ~ Like a lot of people I guess I got to know Yu Wo's work with 1/2 Prince and Legend of the sun knight hehehe ~ I recently started No Hero, I can't wait to know what happens next >v< And I'm pretty curious about Illusion, Lies, Truth, the gorgeous covers really caught my eye *v* And I like drawing btw, I might post some doodles related to Yu Wo's novels someday /o/
Hello i'm mocha, nice to meet you ^^ I love reading and learning new languange.. I get to know 1/2 prince from 'surprise' button when searching for manga, so I guess its fate~ My favourite is The Legend of Sun Knight (sun cunningness really hooked me ><) Right now I'm really interested in Dominion's end..
Hello everyone! I am dinoj, and I am a master procrastinator ! HA HA HA My favorite is also The Legend of the Sun Knight, but I really like all of Yu Wo's other works too, really like her humor ^-^ I am a frequent stalker of this site and some other LN translating sites. Oh, and I ended up here because I got impatient waiting for the manhwa for LSK heh I have the utmost respect for the translators and proofreaders because I tried and it's so hard D: and plenty time consuming x.x So, thank you to everyone who does this tedious work! I can't thank you all enough, really! I also have many interests, I like starting short stories but never finishing them. I once got called a cat because all I do is eat and sleep. But that's not true! I watch a lot of shows and read a lot too! My hobby is probably eating and sleeping though.. Let's get along
Hey, I'm Nimue, a moderator XP, it's amazing. Just, yeah, I'm currently a high school student, expert at procrastination, decent at cooking, abysmal at drawing, I have a job, woo independence! And I'm in utter adoration of Ray, praise the Goddess of the Church of Light Raylight! XP And no, I will never stop calling you that RayRay! Also. Lucathia. I am a total and utter fangirl of you. I have exams at the moment and so, cannot be on too much, only once a day and not long. I'm female, my favorite of Yu Wo's works is LSK, and second by the slimmest margin is 1/2 Prince and I'm looking forward to reading her other works and doubtlessly fangirling over them.
I'm free to chat, I don't bite, poke me with a stick if I don't reply and I'm on various other sites...um. Yeah, I'm likely the youngest on the PR! team and I'm like, overjoyed to be on it. Like, don't even start with my apparently 'enthusiastic' application. ...I feel embarrassed but so happy at the same time really, I'm happy to chat, as a moderator I'm fairly happy to just chitchat, whenever I can.
I'm happiest when I'm me. I might not be sugar and spice and everything nice but I promise I'm here to stay. Other girls who are sugar and spice and everything nice are lucky. I'm all sarcasm and wine and not everything's fine. But I'm here to stay okay?

Hello! I am the one and only Cherry Chimchim.
The Legend of the Sun Knight was my first love, and continues to be my favourite series, possibly by far. I was introduced to it by a friend, and I am ever so glad I started reading it because it is just a beautiful ray of sunshine in my life. I'm just a person who tries to be funny, though I'm not actually very funny, and someone who likes writing but would very much like to finish writing something for once (The most I have ever written for something was 17,000 words).
I hold all the PR! translators and everyone else on the team in my highest regard. I love languages and translating them. Unfortunately, my Chinese is not good enough to translate with, but I hope that one day (hopefully very soon) I would know enough Chinese characters to translate a chapter of The Legend of the Sun Knight. I already have the Chinese versions of LSK sitting in my house, so I intend to start from the very beginning and learn. It is my dream and I hope it will come true.
Everybody wants happiness, nobody wants pain. But you can't have a rainbow without a little rain.
I started reading Half Prince after a recommendation, caught onto the other series, and have been reading them up to date for at least 2 years I think? Personality-wise, I think i'm strange (but aren't we all haha) and I like manga and anime ("like" might be an understatement).
Aside from introductions, I'd also like to give a massive thank you to the PR! translators and everyone involved with the translations. It's made life a lot more interesting ^^
I first discovered Yu Wo through the LSK manhua (at the time, I was writing a story based on knights and wanted to see what was already out there) but didn't fall in love with the series until I discovered PR. Never have I laughed so hard and adored so many characters at once! It got to the point where I became inspired by Lucathia (as I bet many others have) and her incredible stories to post something of my own. Since then, I have not been able to read other stories with the same level of affection I have for LSK.
