100translateNotes:

  • The joke in Japanese revolved around two idioms. Both idioms relate to weather, and also contain the word “fox” (kitsune) within them.
  • The first is 狐日和 (kitsune biyuri) which literally translates to “fox weather,” and is used to refer to fickle weather that is unpredictable (like a fox).
  • The second (both the title and punchline) is 狐の嫁入り (kitsune no yomeiri) which literally translates to a “a fox’s wedding.” It is used to refer to sun showers. Kaden is about to remark that its called such, but then springs to hug Selkie not wanting her to go get wed!
  • To convey this joke best I could (as English lacks a fox/weather equivalent) without also having to explain or change the entire joke, I simply opted to show the reader that the Kitsune refer to the weather with these phrases, (with Kaden saying “we call this” or “we refer to it as”). Even if the reader speaks no Japanese, they would hopefully accept that this is what these strange Kitsune do! Conversely, that helps emphasize Keaton’s point in the end, too.

Notes:

  • In Japanese, Keaton said お礼参りに来たぜ! which can mean “We’ve come to settle the score!” to which Kaden corrects him saying, 恩返しね (“repay a favor”). The joke carried well in English, as settle the score has more negative connotations (usually someone seeking revenge), which is why Corrin was nervously confused.
  • An alternative meaning is Keaton saying, “We’ve come on a pilgrimage to give thanks!” (the above line can mean that too), which Corrin would still be notably confused by, but the above flowed better in English.

  • 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.
