Today’s Goals and Jobs – 4/15/2016

Here are my goals and the jobs I’m working on for 4/15/2016. To everyone who has contributed, thanks for all the help! Remember to follow me on Twitter to get more updates.

What’s Going On:

For some reason, there’s some sort of weird bug I’m dealing with where the post won’t show up when I edit it, so I only got to edit one translation yesterday in the Changelog. Other than that though, six more supports and another Skinship done! I’m hoping I can ramp up even more than that soon, but we’ll see. We hit a milestone! 1% of all of the massive amount of support conversations are done! I imagine we’ll be hitting percentage points faster now, since I’m essentially doing about 2 full sets a day and the pace should only get quicker.

Ignis x Siegbert C

Ignis x Siegbert B

Ignis x Siegbert A

Eponine x Setsuna C

Foleo x Soleil A

Foleo x Soleil S

Ignis Skinship Lines

Today’s Goals

  • 5+ supports with Skinship and hopefully some main story stuff.
  • Continue to incorporate feedback into editing the translations for better English fluency.
  • Get started on Fawful Friday stuff early so that I can manage the big workload I have.

Possible Complications: Got a rather big work project I need to work on a lot if I’m going to get it done by the deadline.

How you can help out: Please help proofread my translations and let me know if anything’s wrong. All you need to understand is English! Also vote or provide feedback in the feedback posts!

Jobs I Need Done

  • I still some opinions on whether the approach I used in Kamui (M) x Sakura is a good way to handle writing in the personality/politeness types before I continue doing other translations.

As always, there’s a page to discuss matter with others or contact me about how they’d like to help out with the Fire Emblem Fates project. It’s been updated to a new page for April. You can use that page for April to discuss things with other members in a more general nature. Thank you for all the people who contacted me or contributed so far! Much love and respect! As well, don’t forget there’s also a page for you to request any kind of Japanese information you need, regardless of whether it’s about Fire Emblem Fates or not. This page has also been updated for April.

Fire Emblem Fates Support Conversation: Foleo x Soleil S

Please Note: The following material obviously spoils some of the story of Fire Emblem Fates. Please read responsibly at your own risk and remember pink eye comes from McDonalds play pens.

Here’s the support conversation between Foleo x Soleil for the S 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:

Foleo: Soleil … / フォレオ: ソレイユ…

Soleil: What’s up with you, Foleo? / ソレイユ: どうしたの、フォレオ?
YOU calling MY name. Will wonders never cease. / フォレオから声をかけてくれるなんて。珍しいこともあるんだね。
Foleo: ………… / フォレオ: …………
Do you … err … like girls? / あの…その… ソレイユは…女の子が好きなんですよね?
Soleil: Ahaha. You have to ask? / ソレイユ: あはは。今更、そんなことを聞くの?
Of course! I love cute girls! / もちろん!あたしは可愛い女の子が大好きだよ!
Foleo: So you’re not interested in boys? I mean … romantically interested … / フォレオ: 男の子じゃダメなんですか?その…恋愛対象として…
Soleil: I wouldn’t say I’m not interested in them … but I definitely like girls better. / ソレイユ: ダメってわけじゃないけど…女の子の方が断然、好きだよ。
I mean, look there’s no grace with guys, right? So I don’t get worked up when I look at them. / ほら、男の子って華がないでしょ?だから、見てても盛り上がらないんだよね。
Foleo: Oh, I did think so … / フォレオ: やっぱりそうなんですか…
Soleil: But I love you! / ソレイユ: でも、フォレオのことは好きだよ。
My heart gets going when I look at you and I just want to squeeze you oh so tight! / 見ててきゅんきゅんするし、ぎゅーって抱きしめたくなっちゃう。
Foleo: Really? You really think that of me? / フォレオ: 本当ですか?本当にそう思ってくれているのですか?
You’ve never thought it was creepy … that I’m a boy, but I look like this? / 僕は男なのにこんな見た目で…気持ち悪いと思ったことはないんですか?
Soleil: How could I ever think such a thing!! Foleo, you’re so lovely! / ソレイユ: そんなこと思うわけないよ!!フォレオはとっても素敵だもん。
Why would I chase you around so much if you weren’t? / そうじゃなきゃ、あんなに追いかけ回したりしないでしょ?
If somebody’s picking on you, I’ll give ’em what for with my fists! / フォレオを悪く言う奴がいたら、あたしがぶっとばしてやるんだから!
Foleo: Soleil … / フォレオ: ソレイユ…
………… / …………
If that’s true … then would you consider a courtship with me? / それなら…僕とお付き合いしてくれませんか?
Soleil: Eh!? / ソレイユ: へ!?
C-courtship … you mean … like romantically and all? / つ、付き合うって…その…恋愛的な意味でってこと?
Foleo: Yes. Because I love you. / フォレオ: はい。僕はソレイユのことが好きなんです。
Soleil: Y-you love me? / ソレイユ: フォ、フォレオがあたしを好き!?
Foleo: … Am I perhaps upsetting you? / フォレオ: …ご迷惑だったでしょうか?
Soleil: N-no way. No no, it’s an honor … / ソレイユ: ま、まさかそんな。いやー、光栄だなあ…
I feel like I’m heaven, getting a love confession from a cute thing like you … / フォレオみたいな可愛い子に告白されて、あたし、天にも昇るような気分で…
Foleo: Soleil! / フォレオ: ソレイユ!
Soleil: Yeeesss? / ソレイユ: はいっ!?
Foleo: I’m serious, I am. Please answer me seriously … / フォレオ: 僕は真剣なんです。真剣に返事をして下さい…
Soleil: You’re right … sorry. But, I … just don’t know. / ソレイユ: そ、そうだよね…ごめん。でも、あたし…わかんないよ。
I haven’t done anything to make you love me. / あたしフォレオに好かれるようなことなんにもしてないし。
I’ve just been chasing you around … / いつも追いかけ回してただけなのに…
Foleo: … That’s just it. / フォレオ: …だからですよ。
Without worrying about whether I’m a boy or a girl … / ソレイユは僕が男とか女とか、そんなこと関係なく…
You said you loved me, straight and without confusion. / 真っ直ぐに、好きだと言ってくれました。
There’s no other lady like that around. That’s why … I love you … / こんな女性は他にはいません。僕は…あなたが好きなんです…
Soleil: Oo-oooh … / ソレイユ: う、うう…
Foleo: I would have you give me your answer, Soleil. / フォレオ: 返事を聞かせてください、ソレイユ。
Soleil: D-Don’t be so mean, Foleo … I’m the one who’s supposed be seducing you … / ソレイユ: ず、ずるいよフォレオ…いつもはあたしが口説く方だったのに…
But … I … / でも…あたしも…
I love you too … as a woman loves a man. / フォレオが好きだよ…一人の男性として。
Foleo: Really? Soleil … that makes my day! / フォレオ: 本当ですか!嬉しいです…ソレイユ!
That means we’re a couple now! / これで僕たちは恋人同士ですね!
Soleil: Aiiie! Wait … don’t hug me, Foleo! / ソレイユ: ひゃっ!?\nちょっと…抱きしめないでよフォレオ。
Foleo: Why? You’re always hugging me. / フォレオ: どうしてですか?いつもはソレイユから抱きしめてくるのに。
Soleil: Being hugged is different from hugging! / ソレイユ: するのとされるのじゃ違うんだよ!
This is … kind of embarrassing … / こんなの…は、恥ずかしいよ…
Foleo: Well that’s because you’re so cute and I can’t help it. / フォレオ: ソレイユが可愛いのがいけないんですよ。
Also, lying about what you feel is more embarrassing … / それに、自分の気持ちに嘘をつく方が恥ずかしいって…
Isn’t that you said, Soleil? / ソレイユ、言ってませんでしたっけ?
Soleil: Now you’re teasing me, Foleo … / ソレイユ: フォレオのいじわる…
Foleo: Ehehe. You can handle a little teasing. It’s not as if I’m trying to embarrass you in front of everyone. / フォレオ: うふふ。いじわるでいいですよ。恥さらしにはなりたくありませんから。
I’m going to treasure you from now on … just as much as you used to chase me around. / 今まで追いかけ回された分…これからは僕があなたを可愛がっちゃいますからね。
I won’t let you get away, my cute little Soleil. / 逃がしませんよ、僕の可愛いソレイユ。
Soleil: Oooh … I don’t know about this … / ソレイユ: ううう…なんか、悔しい…

Translation end!

Translation notes: In some places, I needed to add some of the context missing from a straight translation of the Japanese. For instance なんか悔しい (nanka kuyashii) doesn’t just mean I feel somewhat regretful about this. It’s an expression used when you don’t know if you’ve made the right choice about a decision. Like say, if you’re out with your friends and you were getting something to eat at the ice cream shop and they chose chocolate chip cookie dough, but you went with your favorite mint chocolate chip. You saw them saying how delicious their flavor was, if you’re saying nanka kuyashii, what you’re really saying is “I don’t know if I should have chosen this flavor,” not “c’est la vie, regret for me!”

Similarly, you’ll hear many Japanese say 嬉しい (ureshii) just by itself. It just means happy, but has a lot of different applications. Much like how in English there can be something of a large difference between “I’m good,” “That’s good,” and something like “It’s all good.” Here it’s very, very close to a meaning like “It makes my day” or expressing some sort of gratitude for a nice compliment, such as the classic “That’s the nicest thing anyone’s ever said to me.”

Now it is a little tricky to figure out sometimes which of the expressions the writers meant for, but if you’re native, you’re well aware that expressions like these don’t just mean “happy” or “regret.” So contrary to popular belief, that is actually the more direction translation.

Not that it matters in this case, since Nintendo just completely ripped out this entire conversation and replaced with meaningless hair styling tips. In any event, if there’s something you feel could be done about the English here, let me know in the comments below.

If you want to see how Nintendo this confession with Friday night sleepover talk about hair and removed the romantic aspect, the Fire Emblem fans at Serene’s Forest have transcribed the official translation of this support here.

Fire Emblem Fates Support Conversation: Foleo x Soleil A

Please Note: The following material obviously spoils some of the story of Fire Emblem Fates. Please read responsibly at your own risk and I am the Clorox, I speak for the pools.

Here’s the support conversation between Foleo x Soleil 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:

Soleil: ………… / ソレイユ:  …………

Foleo: S-Soleil? You’re not chasing me around today … / フォレオ: そ、ソレイユ?今日は追いかけてこないんですね…

Soleil: Foleo, you really … are a boy … / ソレイユ: フォレオってさ…本当に男の子だったんだね…

Foleo: What? / フォレオ: えっ?

Soleil: When I asked everyone … they all said you were a boy … / ソレイユ: 仲間たちに確認したら…みんな、フォレオは男の子だって言うから…

Foleo: T-That’s right! I really am a boy! / フォレオ: そ、そうです!僕は本当に男の子です!

You’ve finally come to understand. Thank the gods. / やっとわかってくれたんですね。安心しました。

Soleil: *sigh* … This is such a shame … / ソレイユ: はぁ…残念すぎるよ…

Foleo: Hehehe. You might say that, but there’s nothing you can do about it. / フォレオ: ふふふ。そう言われてもどうにもなりませんからね。

Soleil: But look at yourself closely. / ソレイユ: だって、自分の姿をよく見てよ。

You’ve got big, cute, wide eyes … a delicate body that makes me want to squeeze you … / ぱっちりした可愛い目に…抱きしめたくなるような華奢な体つき…

No matter how you look at it … you look like a girl, don’t you think? / どこからどう見ても…女の子にしか見えないでしょ?

Foleo: I can’t help it if others think like that … but I really am a boy after all is said and done. / フォレオ: そう思われるのは構いませんけど…それでもやっぱり僕は男の子なんです。

Soleil: Yeah, I guess so … You are a boy, no matter what I do … / ソレイユ: そうなんだよね…何がどうなっても男の子なんだもんね…

That means I can’t seduce you … and there’s no reason to chase after you anymore … / それじゃあ、口説けないし…追いかける必要もないってことだからね…

Foleo: Let’s just be friends, boy and girl. Let’s have a normal relationship from now on. / フォレオ: これからは普通のお付き合いをしましょうね。男女の友だちとしてです。

Soleil: Yeah … sorry, Foleo. / ソレイユ: うん…ごめんね、フォレオ。

For misunderstanding you and chasing you around like you were a girl. / 女の子と間違えた上に今まで追いかけ回しちゃって。

Foleo: It’s quite all right. We have solved the misunderstanding after all. / フォレオ: いいんですよ。誤解は解けたわけですから。

Oh … this means I’ll finally get to talk to you normally, Soleil. / ああ…これでやっと、普通にソレイユとお話しできますね。

… That makes me happy. / …僕、嬉しいです。

Soleil: You’re happy to talk to me? / ソレイユ: あたしと話せてうれしいの?

Foleo: Ahaha, of course. / フォレオ: うふふ、もちろんですよ。

Soleil: ………… / ソレイユ: …………

Foleo: … Soleil? / フォレオ: …ソレイユ?

Soleil: Urg … ! / ソレイユ: うっ…!

Foleo: W-what’s the matter? Are you injured? / フォレオ: ど、どうしたんですか?どこか苦しいんですか!?

Soleil: I knew it … cute, you’re cute … / ソレイユ: やっぱり…可愛い……

Foleo: Huh? / フォレオ: へ?

Soleil: Even though I now know you’re a boy, you’re still cute … I mean that last smile’s so cute it’s practically against the rules/ ソレイユ: 男だってわかってても可愛いよ…さっきの笑顔なんて反則だもん。

… That’s it! / …もういい!

You may be a boy, but that’s no problem! Feelings don’t lie and they’re telling me you’re cute! / 男の子でも問題ない!可愛いって気持ちに嘘はつけないよ!

Foleo: O-oh my gods, not this … / フォレオ: ま、まさかこの展開は…

Soleil: Yeah, that’s it … no problem … no problem at all … / ソレイユ: そうだよ…問題ないよ…全く、問題ない…

Mwa ha ha … mwa ha ha ha ha ha … / ふふ…ふふふふふ…

Foleo: T-There is a problem! A big problem!! / フォレオ: も、問題あります!とても問題ありますよ!!

Think about it. / よく考えてください。

Among girls is one thing … but a girl chasing boys around … / 女同士ならいざ知らず…男の子を追いかけ回し、

Rubbing her cheeks against him, do you think of the kind of embarrassment you’re setting me up for!? / ましてや頬ずりする女の子なんて、とんだ恥さらしですよ!?

Soleil: Oh, it’s much more embarrassing to lie about your feelings, don’t you think? / ソレイユ: 自分の気持ちに嘘をつく方が恥ずかしいと思いませんか!

Foleo: No, not this time … oh, that’s it! / フォレオ: 今回ばかりは思いません……そ、そうだ!

I just remember I have something I need to do. Please excuse me, but I need to get going … / 僕用事を思い出しました。すみませんがこれで…

Soleil: Ah! / ソレイユ: あっ!

Don’t run away Foleo! Look, I’m going to make you my cute little pet! / 逃げないでよフォレオ!ほら、いっぱい可愛がってあげるから!

Foleo: Why must things be like this? Soleeeeieeieil! / フォレオ: どうしてこうなっちゃうんですか!ソレイユーーーーー!

Translation end!

Translation notes: There are a couple of areas where I had to get a little creative to express the meaning in Japanese, so I’m not sure if they come across well in English. Do remember Foleo is a little more restrained and formal in his speech, so some of the awkwardness is intentional, but by all means if something is crossing the line into just straight weird, let me know about that or other criticisms you have in the comments below!

Today’s Goals and Jobs – 4/11/2016

Here are my goals and the jobs I’m working on for 4/11/2016. Thanks for all your help and support! Remember to follow me on Twitter to get more updates.

What’s Going On:

I met my goal, here are the translations and Fawful Friday articles:

Kisaragi x Velour C

Foleo x Soleil C

Foleo  x Soleil  B

Deere x Joker C

Deere x Joker B

Deere x Joker A

Kisaragi Skinship Lines

Translation: Interview with Keiko Erikawa

Translation: Games are Poison for Children?

Marx/Marks Character Name Poll

Elfie/Elfy/Elfi Character Name Poll

Today’s Goals

  • Translate as much as I can even if I can’t upload it.

Possible Complications: Holy moley! It took me about 20 tries of reloading to get this “add new post window” to finally appear and who knows how many times it will take until it actually posts it. Something in my area seems to be interfering with my internet connection, because I feel like I’m some modem computer scientists used in the 80s or something. I don’t know if it’ll get better today, but if it doesn’t, I’ll be translating in the background, so that I can upload them all in a batch once it gets better.

How you can help out: Err, pray for my internet connection? Or if you’re irreligious, vaguely hope in its direction?

Jobs I Need Done

  • I will always and forever need people to comment on my translations as much they can.
  • Vote! It’s spoiler free. If you’re waiting for the translation patch, these polls aren’t going to ruin anything for you.
  • I’m going to continue to request help for the method of doing in-page links, because nothing I’ve tried so far is working!

As always, there’s a page to discuss matter with others or contact me about how they’d like to help out with the Fire Emblem Fates project. It’s been updated to a new page for April. You can use that page for April to discuss things with other members in a more general nature. Thank you for all the people who contacted me or contributed so far! Much love and respect! As well, don’t forget there’s also a page for you to request any kind of Japanese information you need, regardless of whether it’s about Fire Emblem Fates or not. This page has also been updated for April.

Fire Emblem Fates Support Conversation: Foleo x Soleil B

Please Note: The following material obviously spoils some of the story of Fire Emblem Fates. Please read responsibly at your own risk and help me protect the sneezing trees.

Here’s the support conversation between Foleo x Soleil for the B 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:

Soleil: Wait! Foleo! / ソレイユ: 待ってよー!フォレオー!

Foleo: I won’t w-wait … Please, let me go … / フォレオ: ま、待ちません…お願いですから放っておいてください…

Soleil: I could never let you get away from me! / ソレイユ: 可愛いフォレオを放っておけるわけないよ!

I’m not going to do anything scary. Trust me and leave your body in my hands. / 何も怖いことはしないからさ。あたしを信じて身を任せてよ。

Foleo: I know that’s a pack of lies … / フォレオ: そ、そんなのウソです…

You have that look in your eye, the look of a ferocious beast when it finds its prey … / 猛獣が獲物を見るときの目つきになってますから…

Soleil: Well there’s no helping the way things are. It’s your fault for being so cute, Foleo. / ソレイユ: それは仕方ないよ。フォレオが可愛いのがいけないんだから。

Foleo: Oooooh … / フォレオ: ううう…

Soleil: I really love cute girls like you Foleo. / ソレイユ: あたし、フォレオみたいな可愛い女の子が大好きなんだよね。

Foleo: I don’t know how many times I’m going to have say this, but … I AM A BOY! / フォレオ: 何度も言いますけど…僕は男の子ですよ!

Soleil: Again with that. I told you, there’s no way that such a cute boy could exist. / ソレイユ: またまたぁ。こんなに可愛い男の子がいるわけないって。

Foleo: It’s true! I really am a boy, I’m telling you! / フォレオ: 本当なんです!本当に僕は男の子なんです!

So I can’t respond to your overtures, Soleil. Please, I’m begging you, give it up! / だから、ソレイユの期待には応えられません。お願いですから、あきらめてください。

Soleil: … Fine. / ソレイユ: …わかったよ。

Foleo: What!? Y-you finally understand me? / フォレオ: え!?わ、わかってくれたんですか!?

Soleil: If you’re a boy, then I will give up on my feelings. / ソレイユ: フォレオが男の子なら、あたしのこの思いは諦めるよ。

So … prove it. / だから…証明して。

Foleo: When you say, “prove it,” … how? / フォレオ: 証明って…何をですか?

Soleil: Give me some sort of proof that you’re a boy. If you do that for me, I’ll relent. / ソレイユ: フォレオが男の子だっていう証明だよ。それをしてくれたら諦める。

Foleo: You keep saying prove it … but I don’t know how I would do that … / フォレオ: 証明と言われても…どうすればいいかわかりません…

Soleil: Well then, I have a great idea. And if you do it, you’ll have proved it to me. / ソレイユ: なら、あたしにいい考えがあるんだよね。それをすればちゃんと証明できるはず。

Foleo: Wh-what do I have to do? / フォレオ: な、何をすればいいんですか?

Soleil: Take a bath with me. / ソレイユ: あたしと一緒にお風呂に入るの。

Foleo: Wh-whaaaaat! That’s totally out of the question and you know it! / フォレオ: え、ええええ!?そんなの無理に決まってます!

Soleil: I don’t care. There’s nothing to be embarrassed about. / ソレイユ: あたしはかまわないよ。何も恥ずかしくないし。

Foleo: I-I would be embarrassed! That’s completely out of the question! / フォレオ: ぼ、僕は恥ずかしいです!絶対に無理ですよ!

Soleil: Hehehe … Washing your cute little back … / ソレイユ: ふふふ…可愛いフォレオと背中の流しっこ…

Foleo: H-hell no … I just can’t listen to you anymore … / フォレオ: だ、ダメですね…もう、何も聞こえてません…

Soleil: Come now, let’s go bathe together! As two friendly girls! / ソレイユ: さ、一緒にお風呂に入ろう!女の子同士、仲良くさ!

Foleo: Oooh … and in the end, nothing changes …/ フォレオ: ううう…結局、何も変わらないんですね…

Translation end!

Translation notes: Though Soleil is using the normal word for cute, the way she says the whole sentence in Japanese comes across like “cute widdle baby” type of talk, you can see this a little by the way she attaches っこ (kko) to some of her words or adding ん (n) near the end of sentences, so that’s why I translate like that. Have any comments or constructive criticism? Let me know in the comments below, and like the last conversation, I really think you ought to check out just how different the official translation is.

If you want to see how Nintendo didn’t just apply a liberal translation, but completely changed the entire conversation to something else, the Fire Emblem fans at Serene’s Forest have transcribed the official translation of this support here.

Soleil: Foleo, I found yoooouuu! / ソレイユ: フォレオ、見つけたーっ!

Foleo: Aiiieeee! / フォレオ: きゃ、きゃあああああ!

Soleil: Oooh! Foleo, you’re so cute! / ソレイユ: ああん!なんて可愛いのフォレオ!

You hit the sweet spot right where my type is! The second I saw you, I was done for! / もう、あたしの好みど真ん中すぎ!一目見ただけでやられちゃったよ!

Foleo: P-please … don’t hurt me … / フォレオ: お、お願いです…\n乱暴しないでください…

Soleil: I could never hurt such a cute girl. / ソレイユ: こんなに可愛い女の子にあたしが乱暴するわけないよ。

So, come on, come here … I’ll pet you like my own little baby … / だから、ほら、こっちにきて…いいこいいこしてあげるから…

Foleo: E-eeek! I-I’m a boy! / フォレオ: ひ、ひぃぃ!ぼ、僕は男の子です!

Soleil: What kind of idiotic nonsense are you rambling on about … there’s no way a boy could ever be this cute. / ソレイユ: 何をバカなことを…こんなに可愛い男の子がいるわけないよ。

Oh it’s just no good … I can’t contain myself … ohohohohoho … / もうダメ…我慢できない…ふふふふふふ…

Foleo: I-I’ve got to escape … aaaauuugh! / フォレオ: に、逃げなきゃ…\nうわあああああああ!

Soleil: Oh wait, Foleo! I’ll never let you get away from me! / ソレイユ: あ、待ってよ、フォレオ!\n絶対に逃がさないからねー!

Translation end!

Joker x Sakura B

Joker x Sakura A

Fuuga Skinship Lines

Still haven’t gotten those polls up. Gotta do that!

Foleo: I wanted everyone to say, “I don’t know” and then see their surprised faces when told them who it really was … / フォレオ: みんなに「わからない」と言わせて、\n正解を言ったときの驚く顔が見たかったのに…

Shigure: R-right … but hey … / シグレ: そ、そうですね…でもまぁ…

Well in the end, it’s not like they insulted us either, so it’s all good, right? / 結果的に悪い気はしなかったから、いいじゃないですか。

Foleo: I guess so … Everyone said it, Shigure, / フォレオ: そうですね… シグレはみんなから、

“We knew it was him, anyone would, because you drew him so well.” / 「こんな上手にフォレオの顔を描いているのだから、誰でもわかる」って、

That means they were really praising your skill with art. / 言われてましたよね。それってつまり、絵の上手さを褒められたわけですからね。

Shigure: They said much the same of you, Foleo. / シグレ: フォレオだってこう言われてましたよ。

“The only one in the army, man or woman, with this kind of beauty is me,” / 「こんな美人は軍の中において男女問わず、フォレオしかいない」って。

Is this not the ultimate compliment for you? / それこそフォレオに対する最上級の賛辞じゃないですか。

Foleo: Ohoho … makes me blush a little. The prank may have ended in failure, but / フォレオ: うふふ…ちょっと照れちゃいます。悪戯は失敗に終わりましたが、

both of us were praised everyone, so let’s call it even. / 二人ともみんなに褒められたということで、今回は良しとしましょう。

Shigure: That’s right … it was really fun. / シグレ: そうですね…とても楽しかったです。

Foleo: … Shigure. The prank failed, but / フォレオ: …シグレ。悪戯は失敗しちゃいましたけど、

Do you mind if we continue our discussions about all the facets of art and culture? / これからも美術や芸術について色々とお話してもいいですか?

Shigure: Yes, of course. Let’s converse to our heart’s content! / シグレ: はい、もちろんです。二人で語り合いましょう。

Foleo: Thank you! Here’s to you, Shigure. / フォレオ: ありがとうございます!これからもよろしくお願いしますね、シグレ。

Shigure: And to you, Foleo. / シグレ: こちらこそ、フォレオ。

Translation end!

Translation notes: In the part where Shigure says, “Let’s converse to our heart’s content,” the “to our heart’s content” isn’t explicitly written, but the expression used often tends to have that kind of meaning in English in the context its often used. It’s like an invitation to open up and talk as much as one wants and to joyously engage in conversation. You often see it said at the beginning of conferences or seminars where a lot of people’s opinions are invited and they want to talk about something in depth. In any case, is there anything I should change? Let me have your constructive criticism and feedback in the comments below.

Fire Emblem Fates Support Conversation: Foleo x Shigure B

Please Note: The following material obviously spoils some of the story of Fire Emblem Fates. Please read responsibly at your own risk and a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down.

Here’s the support conversation between Foleo x Shigure for the B 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:

Foleo: Shigure, we’ve finally finished it! / フォレオ: ついに完成しましたね!\nシグレ!

Shigure: Yes, not bad if I do say so myself. / シグレ: はい、我ながらよくできました。

Shall we call it … the portrait of Foleo as a noble lady? / フォレオの貴婦人画…と言ってもいいんでしょうか?

Hehehe … / ふふふっ…

Foleo: Of course. / フォレオ: もちろんです。

After all, I went through the trouble of wearing the dress of a true lady to be your model for this painting. / だってこの絵のモデルになるために、僕はわざわざ貴婦人の衣装を着たんですから。

Without revealing that it was me, / これを僕のことは明かさず、

When I ask my friends, “Try and guess who this is,” … / 「誰を描いたものか当ててみて」と仲間たちに言ってみたとき…

I wonder who will be able to answer correctly … ? Hehehe, it’s going to be good. / 誰が正解を答えられるでしょうか…?うふふ、楽しみです。

Shigure: I don’t think ANYONE will be to get it, do you? / シグレ: きっと誰もわからないんじゃないでしょうか?

This picture looks like a woman no matter what angle you view it from and your clothes here are so different from what you usually wear, Foleo. / だって普段のフォレオとは衣装も違うし、どこからどう見ても女性ですよ、この絵は。

Foleo: Yes, I think so as well! / フォレオ: はい、僕もそう思います!

Shigure: That said, this kind of large-scale prank … it’s the first time I’ve ever done something like it! / シグレ: それにしても、こんな大がかりな悪戯…生まれて初めてですね。

I feel like we’ve gone back to our childhood, it’s quite stimulating. / なんだか子供の頃に戻ったみたいで、すごく楽しみです。

Foleo: Well then, let’s get a move on and go and show everyone! / フォレオ: じゃあ早速今から、みんなに見せに行きましょう!

Shigure: Ah! Foleo! Wait a second! / シグレ: あっ! ちょっと待ってください。フォレオ!

Shouldn’t you be hiding in the shadows? / あなたは物陰に隠れていないと!

If both of us go and ask, “Who’s the subject of this picture?” / あなたと二人一緒に出て行って、「この絵は誰を描いたもの?」

We’d be letting the cat out of the bag immediately. / なんて聞いたら、すぐにバレちゃいますよ。

Foleo: Ooh, you’re right … ! No good that, no good at all … / フォレオ: ああっ、そうでした…!いけない、いけない…

Shigure: Phew … okay, shall we go? / シグレ: ふぅ…では行きましょうか。

You should leisurely walk behind me at a distance so they don’t come on to you, Foleo.  / フォレオは気づかれないよう、俺から離れてゆっくり歩いてきて下さいね。

Foleo: Yes, surely! / フォレオ: はい、わかりました!

Translation end!

Translation notes: As I said in the other dialogue, Foleo and Shigure both speak like proper nobles, so I have translated them that way. When Foleo says いけない、いけない (ikenai) this is a more normal type of expression that you say when you’re not supposed to be doing something, but I did try to give it a more noble flare because of the context of their speech. I’m not sure “no good, no good at all” fits, but it’s all I can think of is that. Do I need to correct that or something else? Let me in the comments below.

Today’s Goals and Jobs – 4/8/2016

We’re heading for the weekend! Here are my goals and the jobs I’m working on for 4/8/2016. Thanks for all your help, guys! Remember to follow me on Twitter to get more updates.

What’s Going On

I did meet met my goal of getting at least five support conversations a day done, but sadly no Skinship. So another day of rather mediocre results. The conversations are as below:

Foleo x Shigure C

Deere x Ophelia C

Kagero x Setsuna C

Orochi x Takumi C

Eponine x Shinonome C

Today’s Goals

  • Keep on chugging, 5+ supports and as much Skinship as I can
  • Those name polls for Marx and Elfy, I need to get to them.

Possible Complications: Gotta keep that real-life workflow flowing.

How you can help out: Feedback, criticism and votes, as always! You can see updates for all the changes I’m making in the Changelog.

Jobs I Need Done

  • If you see a translation page with no comments on it, why not take a brief look? If you see something to fix, tell me about it. If not, say, “This looks good. Didn’t find any problems,” or something to that extent. I do wait a while before I correct and edit translations just to make sure I don’t ignore anyone who comes along to comment, but I do get around to them!
  • Vote! Come on guys, it’s not that hard to click on a straw poll and choose an option! There are no spoilers.
  • I’m going to continue to request help for the method of doing in-page links, because nothing I’ve tried so far is working!

As always, there’s a page to discuss matter with others or contact me about how they’d like to help out with the Fire Emblem Fates project. It’s been updated to a new page for April. You can use that page for April to discuss things with other members in a more general nature. Thank you for all the people who contacted me or contributed so far! Much love and respect! As well, don’t forget there’s also a page for you to request any kind of Japanese information you need, regardless of whether it’s about Fire Emblem Fates or not. This page has also been updated for April.
