Valkyria Chronicles 4 Completed! And Possible Localization Trivia Plans

This is just a milestone post on completing the latest game in one of my favorite series to 100%.

It took about 67 hours!

But for this blog, there was a ton of stuff going on between the original and the localization. From western movie references in the English version to all sorts of memes and trope names here and there (from arrow to the knee to Xanatos Gambit), I’m not actually sure where to begin on writing articles.

For other players who have played the game, though, feel free to leave a request of what interested you in English that you couldn’t help but wonder, “Just what was that in Japanese?”

I’ll bet it was changed quite a bit, as I observed listening in both languages. Still, it should be fun to look into.

I may also consider writing guides, such as a medal guide, or other tidbits people may find useful here and there.

Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon: Evolution? Isn’t that like, maturing quickly? [JPN vs ENG]

Time for another entry in Pokemon Super Mystery Dungeon comparisons. I have looked into some others before, which you can find listed under the comparisons page!

Today, I look at a quick reader request for Pokemon Super Mystery Dungeon:

A friend of mine told me that, in the health class scene in Pokemon Super Mystery Dungeon, the partner in the Japanese version asks the teacher if evolution is similar to sex. In the English localization, they instead compare it to puberty. Could you confirm whether this is true?

They helpfully provided the links to the dialogue in question for both English and Japanese (a big thank you for that!)

So let’s take a look:

Page 44 (9/25) “For Beauty’s Sake”

Note:

The title literally translates to something more like “For Heaven’s Sake,” but I wanted to play with the title a bit. Originally I went with “Because He’s Perfect,” which came from playing with the words that answers Ike’s question at the end. But it was a bit too much of creative liberty/stretch! 頼むから (たのむから /tanomukara) is used as a pleading phrase, but if you take it as 頼む (verb for rely on) から (an indication of reason) you get silly fun with the reason Oliver is here.

Of course, this is not a purposeful pun, and is a stretch because 頼む itself would not be in this form if they were using it to mean reliable in that sense, so it is highly likely it is indeed just the pleading phrase.

So instead looking at “For Heaven’s Sake,” I instead went for a joke that revolves around Oliver.

Also, he originally addressed Oliver in second person (“What are you doing over there?!”), and, while it may be obvious to some, others may be confused who he is posing this question too. So the third person was used.
