is there any sort of translate feature for this on twitter or would copy and pasting into google translate be the only way to go about reading what this says?

I really enoyed the first Q&A session. Mamare is a cool guy.
Too bad I had to be at work when this one was held.

Also, he didn't acknowledge that plans for a second season are currently ongoing.

From the transcript, with some translation:

Quote:
How can us fans overseas show support and future demand for more seasons of Log Horizon? Are blu-ray sales the most important factor?

Sales is the most important, of course, but it's not simply very important alone. Comments and views on Crunchyroll are also important, as is fan mail.


Interesting to see that Crunchyroll views affect such decisions.

Second season or not this series has defiantly gotten more successful than it was initially tough it would have been and the rate of success is still growing so there is defiantly real potential for this series to have more future seasons to be adapted. Also i wouldn't be surprised it would get and English adaption release of the LN in the future you will see.

For those curious about the author's answers for this round of Q&A (there have been others) this pastebin link has the responses from the author translated from Japanese to English (though if he answered in English it was left alone)

In particular I found his comment about Tomino's critique to be quite enlightening to how a creator in Japan could take such remarks.

So basically, all those people who say Crunchyroll doesn't help anyone are full of shit?

Pretty much.

He acknowledges CR's help.

He also mentions, in a more general way, that CR has opened the door for the timely and legal distribution of anime, and seems pleased by this; I am, too.

I have never attempted to read a 4-chan post before, can anyone offer me some advice on how to make heads or tails of that thread? For one, how do I distinguish Mamare Touno's posts from everyone else's?

Mamare Touno's posts are the ones from "Mamare !5bXzwvtu.E"
