Carley Garcia

Carley has been a professional Japanese > English translator for over a decade, working largely in the pop culture sphere. In May 2020, she joined the team at OTAQUEST, specializing in lesser-known aspects of Japanese pop culture, rambling about retro games, forgotten anime series, and Tokyo’s indie musicians in her first official paid gig as a staff writer. She continues to share her love for gaming by contributing hundreds of articles to sites such as Siliconera and VGKAMI.


Carley spends her free time gaming with her husband, scoping out breweries and wineries, and writing self-indulgent fanfiction. She prefers lore-heavy RPGs and walking sims and has only played Dragon Age: Inquisition 13 times. Her favorite Final Fantasy game is all of them.
