Well...not that I have one at the moment...but in your opinion, what makes for a better translation - a native English speaker with fair/good Japanese skills, or native Japanese speaker with fair/good English skills?

For older tokusatsu the latter works best... 'Jidaigeki' is quite challenging, even for a seasoned native translator... The first example would be good for the kiddie shows sans the Ultra's which are/can be difficult... Demon Hunter gave our old translator fits of rage... that was a period piece... albeit a made up one...

Interesting. Thanks for the insight. I've got friends in Chiba who are big fans of Showa-era tokusatsu. If I can land a translator, I'll let you know.
