About Me

I read manga for fun, and adapt it to put a roof over my head (also fun, which is a plus!). I use my full name for credits, but “Ysabet Reinhardt MacFarlane” is quite the mouthful, so more often than not I drop most of it when I’m not wearing my professional hat. I’m the adapter on various manga series for VIZ Media and Seven Seas, adapted multiple series for TOKYOPOP, and adapted manga-related fanbooks for both TOKYOPOP and Del Rey Manga. A full list of my adaptation credits can be seen here. I also reviewed manga at MangaLife.com for two years, and links to those reviews can be found throughout this blog.

My training is in academic theatre (primarily playwriting and dramaturgy), with forays into studying screenwriting and Japanese religious traditions.

I did not, alas, have an actual cat named Segue once; I can’t even take credit for the phrase, which mysteriously entered my social circle’s vocabulary a couple years back. Still working on tracking its origin down.
