For those interested in how much thought went into such a mundane comic, please check the translation notes! The left comic (Singing Haiku) had to be adjusted slightly to best get the joke across.

093translateNotes:

  • The left comic was a tough one. I felt it could be better. Translating was straightforward, but the main joke would be literally lost in translation. The joke revolved around the fact that, in Japanese, the word for singing and song (歌/歌う) can also be used for classical poetry/reciting poetry.
  • With the above in mind, I tried a lot of different approaches to making it flow naturally, but in English the closest I could get was saying “to sing one’s praises” (often through poetry). But it sounded really awkward to say “I support my allies by singing one’s praises…” or “singing their praises.”
  • The other joke still comes through, however, in that Corrin was rather impressed with the mundane Haiku coming off as potentially “deep” song, when really he just misunderstood the sing vs poetry joke.
  • As a result, I included the brief Translator’s Note, but set out to avoid doing this too often when translating these comics. This one needed one, or else the entire comic would have to be changed.
  • For those interested, the first Haiku was more literally, “Yukimura scolds me/gets scolded when his glasses break”, with the “scolded” a pun on “big round eyes”. So I figured “big round eyes” and “burn into my soul” would combine the two ideas while still adhering to the 5-7-5 structure.
  • The second haiku about the loincloth is more accurate and just reworded slightly, but she is referring to laundry she forgot to hang up.
  • The title is actually “One-Haiku Poem” (or one-verse poem) if it were translated literally, but I changed it to “Singing Haiku” as a way to get the pun idea across better.

FE Fates Localization: Flora Death Quote Comparison (Minor-Major)

Flora

This is another post in my ongoing Fire Emblem Fates localization comparison posts! I discuss anything from major to minor changes here as I play through the game.

Today, I look at Flora’s death quote in English and Japanese. It is a major change (to the quote itself), but a minor change (to the overall game/story). That is why it is labeled as “Minor-Major” for more clarification.

Please note that this post is purely informative and may share some opinion, but this does not mean the change is necessarily good or bad. A change is just a change that is being looked into, and you can be the judge of whether you like it or not!

It is all just for fun and curiosity for me. : )

Today, we look at a scene from Chapter 11 in Conquest. I was curious and was asked to look into it, too. It is really minor, so I decided to do this post today too.

There are plot spoilers, so please be wary as you go forward.
