Re: Confessions of a beginner translator

This 'c' word is not something you call a peek-up-ing male [...] Well, yeah, neither is 'chicken' in English. 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...

Re: Confessions of a beginner translator

There is another one which is daunting me as a translator right now: the question of 'saving'. This one word is used in english in the comic, as all-encompassing homonym of (helping someone, rescuing someone, delivering someone from peril, writing the game state to disk)... it is essential to this c...

Re: Confessions of a beginner translator

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... This 'c' word is not something you call a peek-up-ing male - its usage in polish is more akin (and historically so) to a 'liar'. There...

Re: [1537] an answer

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...

Confessions of a beginner translator

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)...

Has anyone shipped Yaku and Junpei yet? Aside from the age difference/ pre-existing romantic interest in Yaku's parental unit. ...how old is Junpei anyways...? I'd quote you panel 4 of 858 :) for my initial thoughts... But on the other hand, Junpei was deemed young enough to be able to beat anyone ...

Re: [1536] Catching your breath

Iffy, you've confused Miho and Kimiko. It's Kimiko who can act so well that she loses herself But if they are linked like that then perhaps they can call upon each other's abilities? o_O MInd you, if they're that strongly linked then the odds are good that they may have problems with keeping themse...

Re: [1536] Catching your breath

@DS, all top notch but it was Junpei who carried Miho over to the ninja compound, other than everything checks out. Junpei took Miho to the ninja compound initially. She was taken to the Foxhole by a squad of ninja, that she beat up, then jumped back to the ninja compound. Oh fsck... I stand correc...

It is entirely possible, still, that what Miho actually feels and her activity level, is/was influenced by Piro's emotions, not Kimiko's. Kimi may be playing the part of the girl she ...

It makes me wonder if she has unleashed her full power yet or is she still holding something back. Maybe her fighting spirit will rise up and take ...

Miho's clothing in frame two seems to have adapted to female action hero mode, it's falling off. And is that a sleepy Ninja in the crook of a tree in that frame, just above the hilt of the sword to the left of Miho? Looks like it, there is a 'sleeping' human figure hung in half on the branch :) The...

In the Twitch stream Fred made an Altered Carbon reference. Obaa-sama Shinobi leans close to Miho who whispers, "That's....fucking....enough"

Miho would of course survive :D
