>Well, I tried searching on the 07thExpansion website for 'English translation' (the Japanese words of course) and found a post Ryukishi07 wrote about people contacting him about an English release. He said he's gotten a lot of such requests, but because his English is too poor, he can't trust making a written contract, so he has to refer them to the Japanese publisher, which ends up being too difficult and expensive so talks break down there. He feels bad about it always going that way, but doesn't know what to do about it as a doujinshi writer.

This actually surprised me.
