Re: [1540] alone?

O.M.G. It's. The. Faeries. Blood. Represented. By. The. Little. GIRL... Or it's Mugi before she let her tails down and ears out. Or it's Miho's conscience. Long time she has not seen her... Plot twist- it's all in Miho's head? Miho's conscience is trapped inside Miho, she can't go out like other fie...

Re: [1538] Mad

Largo has a contract to neutralize placed on him by the TPCD and Meimi working as a subcontractor for the Ninja on that contract. s/has/had ? And Meimi did say she did not decide if she wants to do that yet, too. Meimi invited Erika and Largo over for a dinner party and Masamichi didn't "put his fo...

Re: One WIP Twitch thread to rule them all [SPOILERS]

Looks like flashbacks from near-death situation - you know the one, when your life rewinds before your eyes :) the one thing from the genre that I did not see Fred doing in MT yet ;)

EDIT: looks like by SFS, we're flashing back to the night before Miho got married...

Re: [1539] Please don't

Well,
I thought yesterday, that one thing Fred did not yet do in Megatokyo, as the genre usually has, is a near-death/flashback situation :) and the MC gets to decide whether they want to come back and live, or not.

Re: [1539] Please don't

Before this thread is completely ran over by one-track-mind bear... I shall point out Miho is already floating in first panel, as Yaku resurfaces. Not sure if this is good. Because she's floating face down. I say though, might there be faery blood involved? So not a witch. Does it make a difference?...

How?
Did not strongly argue with Enji on the merit of the old contract, only on execution ?

Re: Confessions of a beginner translator

Uhuh, this is why I wrote above : to translate a work of art is like, being a translator of culture. Luckily, Poland is not that far from the Western influences, so certain contexts translate very nicely. But I can see how translators struggle with Japan and China to West and vice versa.

Re: [1538] Mad

@DS - Junpei's and Miho's eyes met, someone said that somewhere here - Miho is now full banshee mode again, Junpei is now there to stop his parents (the only ones still capable of fighting) from following her (even Enji wants to sit down she's so beat)

He ignores us, doesn’t work on the VN, draws fads and memes, sends paarfi to take his flak, because he’s hoping we will all forget, take the financial loss, and not mention it anymore, quietly happy that we could fund his life for a time.

Re: Confessions of a beginner translator

this context does not fit. I am really not making myself clear here. I apologize for that. I am trying to explain that it doesn't "fit" in the original either. There is no (English-speaking) woman that would call someone trying to peep up her skirt a "chicken". It doesn't fit the context as you say...

Again, that's kind of the point, Largo is confused, but he also doesn't even get how confused he actually ought to be (because he didn't even get that Junko wasn't actually yelling in Engli...

There is another one which is daunting me as a translator right now: the question of 'saving'.

Hi @darrin, welp thanks for doing the research :) but no, 'cygan', where I'm from (and fairly similar in other regions of Poland I think) is not a good match here...

The Sawatari Shrine is I think slightly far away (Himeji, that's in Nagano Area, Google says it is 280 something miles away from Tokyo) although it's not like they are pressed for time to make the journey there and back, but even Miho may have difficulties if she tried to make it there alone with Ya...

Yo. You may think it's weird, that I write this here, in English. Also the comic I refer to is long posted and up and all. Ever since I even started considering the thought of translating ... basically, anything ... I guess the job of a translator of a work of art is, to convey the meaning of what w...

Re: One WIP Twitch thread to rule them all [SPOILERS]

Ok, sorry could not watch yet... Will try to catch up this evening (EU time) but regards to Miho's name, where does Kotone come from ? So much it bugged me so I tried making up a name with 'Cotton' in it...

But it just occurred to me that an anagram of Kotone is... E, Not OK... ?

Re: [1537] an answer

He could also take them back to Megagamers apartment... That would be unexpected by at least the horde, and away from the smashed hospital, and place that Yaku wasn't in before, so the potential author can experience something new (and listen to a story of how Kimi caused my head to stop right here)...
