Japanese “Squid” vs “Octopus” Sushi Splatfest Dialogue Translation

Someone emailed me the following:

If you don’t mind, can you translate this? I want to know exactly what they’re saying, seeing how it’s Kura Sushi and all, and they don’t seem to have any issues with eating squid and octopus.

They attached a series of shots that had the dialogue in question, so I took a look and added a translation below! Raw text can be found after the image itself. Thanks for providing the dialogue, and wow I guess they really don’t have any issue with eating their own kind. xD

All these requested translations are done on my free time and can be time consuming. It is certainly a lot of work, and I am unemployed… so please consider donating if you like the work I do. Any amount (no matter how small) is much appreciated and helps me keep going on a daily basis.

Note: Japanese food names have been translated as best as I could for one who may not be familiar with them (such as Takoyaki or Tako-oden becoming Fried Octopus and Octo Mixed Dish)

  1. Thanks again for translating it for me.

    However, I think Marie isn’t talking about takousa. She seems to be saying takoWAsa, a dish that consists of octopus and wasabi. It’s also the name of the final boss.

    Just an observation, that’s all.

    • You’re welcome! Gah! Thought I caught that on my editing run and fixed it, but that must’ve been another ワ I read as ウ (their font is so unfriendly on those screenshots xD)

      Fixed it up in both the image and transcript! Sorry about that! And thanks for pointing it out : )
