Not much to say, my name's Daniel Lofthouse, I'm 18 years old and living in Australia. I love the Light Novel style of pictures and plotline rather than cloggy page-long descriptions, and I'll read anything so long as it has some elements of super-natural/magic and romance.
I'm a native English speaker, and somewhat proficient in Greek and Japanese (Close to finishing Japanese Certificate I). I've spent some of my spare time anonymously proof-reading and quality checking manga, but I decided to stop because of too many websites hosting/stealing scanlated manga (most of them ignoring waiting periods) and generating massive ad revenue. Since then, I've returned to editing/reading Light Novels.
I fix punctuation, misspelt words, present tense, and grammatical errors. If there's a difficult edit that requires reference to the original Japanese text, then I'll leave a post about it on the discussion page.
When I'm not partaking in otaku-related activities, I can be found playing Dueling Network and Mario Kart Wii. My account on Dueling Network is Lofthouse and my skype is loftyz47. I also run a non-monetized Youtube gaming channel under the same name.

In the future, I plan to edit/read High School DxD, Campione, and Sakurasou when the translation reaches around Volume 5.5.
