Nagareboshi is a localization services company focusing on videogames, animation, TV, comics and popular culture in general. Our main objective is to provide the entertainment industry with the highest quality language and content support available.
Nagareboshi is lead by Luis Alis, one of the earliest Spanish experts in Japanese manga, anime and videogame culture. Luis felt the impulse to study Japanese when he was 16 and started his career contributing chiefly to MangaZone, one of the first anime and manga magazines ever created in Spain. He then joined Canal Satélite Digital and started a 3 year period of national satellite broadcast TV production, eventually becoming the director of Spain’s seminal DOF6 videogame program. He also singlehandedly created and produced Bakuchiku, the first ever Spanish TV magazine on anime and manga culture. After finishing his BA in English Studies at University of Valencia, he worked briefly as specialist and interpreter for Sony Computer Entertainment before joining Japanese gaming giant Namco as a member of its London office. Shortly after a merger with Bandai ensued, Luis moved to Japan for a total of 7 years working as Localization Producer for Bandai Namco Games. Luis has led or contributed chiefly to dozens of Bandai Namco localization projects.
Joining Luis and the Nagareboshi venture is Senior Production Manager Lidia Núñez. She started learning Japanese in her late teens, while she was studying a BA on Translation and Interpreting at University of Malaga. She then moved to the UK to study Illustration and Design at the University of Sunderland while contributing to Japanese culture magazine Minami, topping it with an invaluable contribution to the European Captioning Institute in London as in-house translator and subtitle specialist. After moving to Japan, she has worked first as videogame translator and then cemented her management skills as Localization Coordinator in Tokyo for companies such as Intac and Torindo. She is also putting the experience of many years to service the cause of making Nagareboshi an outstanding localization and contents creator.
