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:

Sophie: … What’s this? Aiiiieee! / ゾフィー:…あれ?\nあわわわわ!?

Ignis: Sophie … Why, are you dancing here? / イグニス: ゾフィー…なぜ、こんなところで踊っている?

Sophie: I’m not dancing at all! / ゾフィー: 踊ってるんじゃないよ!
There’s some sort of bug thing … crawling somewhere on my back! /背中からなんか…虫みたいのが入っちゃったの!
Ignis: A b-bug? / イグニス: む、虫だと!?
Sophie: Ignis! Get it! Get it! / ゾフィー: イグニス!取って取って!
Ignis: Err … I … / イグニス: いや…俺は…
Sophie: Get it away get it away get it away! Quickly, quickly! / ゾフィー: 取って取って取ってー!早く早く!
I can’t get because it’s on my back! Please, I’m begging you! / 背中だから自分じゃ無理!お、お願いだから!
Ignis: Er, eh, don’t panic. First, c-c-calm down./ イグニス: あ、あわ、慌てるな。まずはお、お、お、落ち着け。
Sophie: Why are you putting distance between us? Get it quickly! / ゾフィー: なんで遠ざかっていくの!?早く取ってよー!
Ignis: D-don’t come here. I’m begging you … / イグニス: こ、こっちに来るな。頼むから…!
G-good … Now let’s call someone … / よ、よし…誰か人を呼んでこよう…
Sophie: Whaaaaat!? I can’t wait that long … ! / ゾフィー: えーーー!?そんなの待てないよ…!
… Ah. The bug, looks like it went away. /…あっ。虫、どっかいったみたい。
Ignis: … oh really? That’s … good, really good. / イグニス: …そうか。それは…本当に良かった。
Sophie: Yes it is. It really is a good thing. / ゾフィー: うんうん。ほんとに良かったよー。
… No it isn’t! /…じゃなくて!
You’re horrible Ignis! Why on earth didn’t you help me out!? / 酷いよイグニス!なんで助けてくれなかったのーーー!?
Ignis: … One who would be a soldier, should not touch women recklessly. / イグニス: …戦士たるもの、無闇に女性に触れるものではないからな。
Sophie: Oh, is that it? You’re surprisingly gentlemanly. / ゾフィー: あ、そっか。意外と紳士なんだね。
… But, is that really the only reason? You’ve been crushing that protective charm in your hand … /…でも、ほんとにそれだけが理由?さっきからお守りを握り締めてるけど…
Ignis: T-That’s because … I’m … a soldier. / イグニス: そ、それも…俺が…戦士だからだ。
I was praying, since I couldn’t recklessly touch a woman, perhaps the bug would go somewhere else quickly … / 無闇に女性に触れられないぶん、せめて虫が早くどこかに行くようにと…
Sophie: Hmmm. I don’t really get it, but … well, next time, step up and help me. / ゾフィー: ふーん。よくわからないけど…じゃあ、次はちゃんと助けてよね。
Ignis: … All right. … I shall strive to do the upright thing. / イグニス: …ああ。…最善を尽くそう。

Translation end!

Translation notes:  最善を尽くす(saizen wo tsukusu) or the expression in that last line is something like a promise and the word saizen literally means “the greatest good,” tsukusu is like putting in an effort or working so hard to the best of your abilities. I translated it like that, but I wonder if there’s another way? Let me know if you found anything else or have an opinion on that in the comments below.
