Re: [1541] Something to say to you

Also is that name just a pun? Combining "moe" with suffix "-ko"? I think it was meant that way when Fred first came up with it. A stereotypical name for a magical girl. Now we know there's a real Moeko, so presumeably her parents actually named her that. I guess it's no weirder than some names that...

Re: Confessions of a beginner translator

I suggest using wwwjdic.com for lists of kanji used for homophones, though you'll have to have a way enter the kana to generate it, as entering Latin characters will result in an attempt to translate English to Japanese. If you're using a Windows computer, you can use the character map accessory to ...

Re: Confessions of a beginner translator

You don't mention this, so I don't want to assume that you didn't take this into account, but I think it's worth pointing out that a large part of the humor there is because the scene itself is about a mistranslation. Junko's "chikan" was described somewhere (I assume forums, not sure now sorry) as...

She's always been capable of heroic feats and now that her heart is "bionic" there's going to be little that can hold her back. Tohya Miho, a girl barely alive. We can rebuild her. We have the technology. We can make her better than she was. Better, cuter, deadlier. The roppyaku man en shoujo? 6 mi...

Re: [1534] I need something sharp

Hm... Miho is simultaneously too young (apparent age ~18) and too old (actual age: over 100?) to be an "obasan" (aunt, or middle aged woman, regardless of relation.)

Yep, that's the deaf kitsune :)

I thought tanukis were the drummers among Japanese mythological beasts.

Re: [1529] The needs of my story

Please don't tell be that all of Megatokyo has been a shaggy-dog story leading to "A city of two tails". It could be much worse... it could lead to the story of one of Junko's clients taking liberties. "The sale of two titties" Then there was the woman with truly impressive... tracts of land, who, ...

Re: [1529] The needs of my story

Have we verified that Head Ninja from 639 is the same as Junpei's grandmother? My old impression was that Head Ninja was male, but looking at it today I see that Head Ninja's gender is hidden under the black robe and hood.

Princess Holy Aura

Not Anime or Manga, but definitely Anime and Manga inspired... Ryk Spoor's new book from Baen Books, Princess Holy Aura, is a magical girl group story with a twist or three. What Would You Give to be a Hero? Stephen Russ never expected to have to answer that question; he went to work, he stayed in h...

Re: And now for something completely different

You mean Ruby, Weiss, Blake and Yang? Never heard of 'em. Sounds like a Grimm tale, though.

Not sure how long I can commit to, as my interests tend to flit around after a while, but I'd be interested.

Didn't read over the whole thing, but note that the twin-tail kit's name is Yakugashi, not Yakugasui. I'm not sure I got all of it. Anyone got a translation available? Here is my shot at transcribing [1490]. Hope it helps. Panel 1: Mugi: <Uwah! It's been a while.> Mugi: <Feels good!> Panel 2: Mugi: ...

Re: [1490] Visiting the Family Shrine [part 1]

Kitsune is the Japanese word for fox, or for a race of shape-shifting, trickster fox-spirits. The spirits are long lived, and the longer they live the more tails they have, and the more tails they have, the stronger their magic is. The strongest and most ancient are the nine-tailed foxes, like great...

Re: [1485] - "no idea what is going to happen"

So what's the translation of Miho's Irish comment? Google Translate fails to translate "dur", ending up with "Dur I am and I hate myself."
