  • There seems to be a few people who are confused with the panel on the right’s punchline. It is not a reference lost completely in translation, as the joke exists within his English profile, which states, “the youngest old man” at the end of it.
  • What is lost in translation is why his English profile says that, where you can read an excellent post on several different blogs, this one for example among others.
  • Considering it existed in the English profile, I did not feel too much a need to make a note of it, as I assumed readers would think of what his profile said.

Notes:

  • As you may have guessed, the left panel was slightly different in Japanese. It revolves around the joke of the word for “flower” and “nose” being said the same way in Japanese. Elise said “flower” (花 hana), then, realizing her mistake, fixed it by saying to Izana “My nose is held high!” (鼻が高い hana ga takai), which is a literal translation of an idiom that refers to being proud, so she is essentially saying “I’m quite proud of it!” “It” being her ability to calculate the total so quickly. She follows it up with “If I do say so myself” using boastful language (我ながら warenagara).
  • I went through many different possible ways to convey this joke. Flowers had to be kept as it was crucial that she kept her moonlighting as a flower vendor secret. So I cut her off at “flo” first, which could lead to the punchline at the end. I am well aware that the “flo” in flower and the word “flow” are said differently, meaning she would have said “flaaow” the first time, and “flouw” the second time. To compensate, while struggling to fix her mistake, she says “Um…I mean flow…” The reader can assume she meant the second pronunciation this time. It’s reinforced by Izana saying “Uh…flow?” Which then leads to the last part. Originally, Izana had said “Flower?” (asking for clarification) there, so the original content was not changed too much either.

Fire Emblem if/Fates: Gender-bend Fanart Translations

Today I fulfilled a reader’s request who wanted to see these few (nicely drawn!) genderbend pictures of the two royal families from Fire Emblem Fates.

It was a minor request (not too much text) so I was able to do it pretty quickly.

The original pictures can be found on this artist’s page on pixiv!

(I guess the guys are having a harder time adapting to the female character design in the game than the other way around? xD)

Feel free to send in any other silly requests like the above. : )

  • The “Hey! Get your own big sis!” line was actually more like “Is Camilla your big sis or mine?!” with a tone of hostility, so would translate to a similar meaning, while this helped it sound more childish too.
  • The final line by Silas is meant to be able to be taken both ways in Japanese, and so I sought to reflect that in English as well. It has (and likely is) both innocent and not so much depending on how one looks as it. It can be two siblings that simply napped/fell asleep together, heating their bodies up, or, it can be a more perverted meaning, which the girls on the left likely took it as. The set up of the previous line of a jealous Corrin likely hints at it being the innocent meaning.

080translateNotes:

  • For those curious, the word on the right panel for “Funny” was “おもしろい <omoshiroi>” Beginners may learn it simply to mean “interesting,” but it bears a connotation for “strangely amusing” which is not necessarily positive, either. I had to reword some things differently as a result to get the joke across.
  • The joke revolved around Beruka’s deadpan likely taking the word literally. She was originally conveying “They saw this picture and couldn’t make any sense of it, but thought it looked “interesting”” to which Kagerou took it to mean the “strange” meaning. So to do that with the word funny, Beruka delivers “they thought it looked hilarious” and that it was “Something funny” as a deadpan delivery to arrive at the same reaction for Kagero.
  • In the left panel, “pickling-rice” refers to nukadoko, a type of rice bran used for pickling things, rather than the pickles themselves. This was the most straightforward way to convey it.
