Here’s the support conversation between Asama and Nishiki for the A level. (Original Japanese is included for reference and better transparency.)

Comments? Questions? Criticisms? Want to let me if I made a typo or if a better approach would work somewhere? Let me know in the comments below.

Translation start:

Nishiki: Asama … got a minute? / ニシキ:  アサマ…少しいいかい?

Asama: Oh my, Nishiki, is it? / アサマ: おや、ニシキさんですか。

After I put you through all that the other day, you’ve come to be tricked by me again? / 先日あれだけの目に遭っていながら、また私に騙されに来たんですか?

Nishiki: About that … I think, after all, you’re pretty amazing. / ニシキ: そのことだけど…ボクはやっぱり、アサマのことをすごいと思うんだ。

Asama: Whatever do you mean? / アサマ: どういうことですか?

Nishiki: Because the fact that you can read the whether meanings that you really do ascetic training and attain that skill, right? / ニシキ: だって天気が読めたのは、アサマが本当に修行してたから身に付いたものだろう?

If that’s the case, then the fact that you overcame the difficult of your training means that you’re rightfully gaining power. / それならその修行を乗り越えたアサマは、ちゃんと力を得ているということだからね。

Asama: ………… / アサマ: …………

Nishiki: On top of that, it’s true that you actually did tough ascetic stuff like that waterfall raining, right? / ニシキ: それに、滝行みたいな辛い修行をやってきたことは事実なわけだろう?

Asama: Well, yes … / アサマ: ええ、まぁ…

Nishiki: … I knew it. That means you really are amazing! / ニシキ: …うん。それじゃあやっぱり、アサマはすごいよ!

If you’ve done all that hard training, one day you just might hear the voices of the enlightened gentleman. / それだけ修行をしてたら、いつかホントに仏様の声が聞こえるかもしれないね。

And when you actually do, this time I want you teach me! / その時は、今度こそボクに教えて欲しいな!

Asama: … Nishiki. / アサマ: …ニシキさん。

I thought you were a funny target to make fun of, but … / あなたはからかいがいのある面白い人だと思っていましたが…

You just might be the type of person I just don’t mesh with. / 実は私にとって、\n最も苦手な部類の人かもしれません。

Nishiki: What? What are you talking about?/ ニシキ: えっ? どういうことだい?

Asama: Not only does none of my bitter hate get through to you, but you honestly praise me … / アサマ: 私の嫌味も通じず、あまつさえ素直に褒めてくるなんて…

… I find it interferes with my constitution. / …どうも調子が狂います。

Nishiki: Hmm … well then, why not make fun of me more and get rid of your resentment? / ニシキ: んー…それじゃあ、もっとボクをからかって鬱憤を晴らすかい?

Asama: … That might be a good move. / アサマ: …それもいいですね。

I can’t let it end here. Some day soon, I shall beguile you with more ridicule. / このまま終わるなんて面白くない。また近いうちにからかって差し上げましょう。

Nishiki: Ahahah, “beguile you with ridicule,” I’ve never heard anyone talk like that before. / ニシキ: あはは! からかって差し上げるだなんて言い方、聞いたことがないよ。

Asama: You’re only going to be laughing for a little while. / アサマ: そうやって笑っていられるのも今のうちです。

Better prepare yourself, because I’m about to show you the real article. / 今に目にもの見せてあげますから、覚悟していてくださいね?

Nishiki: Yaaay, I can’t wait! / ニシキ: わーい、楽しみだなー。

Translation end!

Translation notes: I liked how at the end of the conversation Nishiki’s propensity to be pure and friendly turns the situation on its head here and I hope I accurately translated how his innocent remark about not hearing anyone talk like Asama reveals the irony of how mean and fake Asama is. Anything I could do better to get across that theme in the dialogue? Let me know in the comments below!

If you want to see how Nintendo tried to take the bite of Asama’s vicious nature and added their own interpretation to the conversation, the Fire Emblem fans at Serene’s Forest have transcribed this conversation here.
