I started reading the Manyoshu, but I'm not very happy with the translation. It was translated 60 years ago and it doesn't seem like the translation was very loyal to the original Japanese. Does anyone know of a better, more recent translation?

Tohoku Pillows | 3 comments There seem to be too few and far between translations of the Manyoushuu in it's entirety, eh! I've made do with smaller collections taken from the whole, such as 100 love poems

Tohoku Pillows | 3 comments ... Pardon me, I'm new to this app! Heh ... such as this collection edition:

I've also had problems finding a complete translation of the shin kokinshuu, given the number of great translators we have popping up everywhere.
