This is a YouTube mini drama series released by Yurin Yurin ahead of the release of A Kiss For The Petals - Maidens of Michael. It is formatted similarly to the Reo/Mai Diaries and Hanahiranime! No scheduling details have been released at this time, but presumably it will be completed before the release of the visual novel it is promoting.

About "Strawberry milk".
Risa's one is like this ↓.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Strawberry_milk

Usually it contains 1 or 2% of real strawberry juice. (For reference, "イチゴ牛乳 strawberry milk" is not allowed as product name in Japan, because it's not 100% of strawberry and milk. Now, their product names are changed such as "Ichigo au lait" or something.)

Proposal:

>イチゴ牛乳よ。まさか、知らないの?
>It's strawberry milk. You can't tell me you don't know? "strawberry milk"

-> some popular strawberry drink name...?

>牛乳とイチゴをジューサーにかけたものとは、また違う味ねえ。

I took the liberty of correcting k01's timings from the .ASS file he uploaded as well as creating a Japanese subtitle stream. For the English stream, I deliberately used Times New Roman and Arial for the text for those who wish to translate into other languages and included the .ASS files in the archive for that purpose. The font used for the title and credits is Gosmick Sans Bold.

Don't know if this is a problem with MPC alone: randomly skipping to a specific time point in the video will result in text disapprearing, or text appearing but the character's name doesn't.

The issues of subtitle rendering are due to limitations with the subtitle filter. Text overflows because the aspect ratio of the display changes, and the name subtitles are not repeated with continued lines from the same character. These are non-issues with normal movies, but the special way I write the subtitles depends on the player window's aspect ratio remaining unchanged.

I agree that we should wait until our terms are consistent with the rest of the series. I'll begin on episodes two and three in the meantime.

I've had a chance to finish reviewing episode one.
I have a few other comments (I figured I would post them here for discussion rather than just change the translation on the wiki page without saying anything).

あーら、そう。じゃあ学校の授業よりもすごいお勉強をしているのかしら?
Oh ho, so that's the case. Then I wonder if what you are doing with such amaaazing diligence is more important than school?

There may be an acceptable level of liberty taken with this line, but I interpreted it as pointed question as to whether Miya studies more outside of class than she would in class.
Oh, I see. So then you’re studying waaay harder than you would in class, huh?

Regarding Yoshida Shoin and his school, there seem to be already commonly used romanizations for these names slightly different from the ones provided by K01.

Yoshida Shoin (founder)
Shoka Sonjuku (school)
Takasugi Shinsaku, Irie Kuichi, Yoshida Toshimaro, and Kusaka Gensui (The "Big Four.")
My references: http://red-bird.org/meiji/irie.htm
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yoshida_Sh%C5%8Din

高山右近の像がある海外の都市は?
In which foreign city does the statue of Takayama Ukon currently reside?
Should this be "A statue" instead of "The statue"? Saying "The" implies that there is only one statue of him.

新撰組の隊士には天然理心流をはじめ、さまざまな流派の剣士がいました。
The Shinsengumi's squad members, such as Ten'nen Rishin-ryu, comprised of many swordmen from different styles.

I will admit that this sentence gave me some trouble, but what it's saying is that the Shinsengumi was formed by swordsmen from various styles of fighting, one of which was Ten'nen Rishin-ryu style.
The way this is phrased, it sounds as though Ten'nen Rishin-ryu was a person who was a member of the Shinsengumi, rather than a style of fighting.
Here is how I translated it:
The members of the Shinsengumi were comprised of swordsmen from varios schools of training, including the Ten’nen Rishin-ryu.

大河ドラマでも、そこまでの詳しいことは……。
That's too obscure even for a Taiga drama (famous TV drama series)…
I presume this is referring specifically to the NHK series "Shinsengumi!"
This makes it sound like it's refering to TV dramas in general, rather than a specific series.

I translated it as:
Even the TV show didn’t go into that much detail...

そんなの反則よお。これだから天才は……。
That's foul play! It's just because you're a genius…
Wouldn't "Because you're a genius" be 天才だから?

I interpreted this sentence as:
So this is why they call you a genius...

Thanks Ralen.

I agree with these points:

>Oh, I see. So then you’re studying waaay harder than you would in class, huh?
>"A statue" instead of "The statue"
>So this is why they call you a genius...
>Kusaka Masao
>Ten'nen Rishin-ryu [stupid mistake from me, I reworded this sentence as well as the one right after it]

The Shinsengumi comprised of many swordsmen from various styles, such as the Ten’nen Rishin-ryu.
Among them, there was another swordman from Hokushin Ittou-ryu, the same style as that of Sakamoto Ryouma's.

As for the remaining 2 points:

>Regarding Yoshida Shoin and his school, there seem to be already commonly used romanizations for these names

I think I'd prefer to keep these names in wapuro romaji like now.

>I presume this is referring specifically to the NHK series "Shinsengumi!" This makes it sound like it's refering to TV dramas in general, rather than a specific series.

I know Risa wasn't refering to any specific series. She used Taiga as a synonym for "historical dramas". However, normal historical dramas can't illust exactly how insignificant the info on Toudou Heisuke's style is, that's why Taiga was mentioned as a point of comparison (these dramas are famous and cover many historical details). So I'd keep this information in.

Wasn't Shinsengumi! a taiga drama though? I'll admit I don't know anything about the series, but the fact that there was a taiga drama called Shinsengumi!, and the fact that she references taiga drama when talking about the actual Shinsengumi seemed like too much of a coincidence. I figured she had to be referring to that specific taiga drama.

Leaving the names in wapuro romaji is okay, but I still think Shoukason-juku should at least be changed to Shouka Sonjuku, since that's where most romanizations I've found online seem to put the break in the word.

I also found one other issue.
だから、授業を受けなくていい、とでも言いたいの? 美夜さん。
You really like saying you don't need lessons, don't you, Miya-san?

In this case 言いたい isn't "Like to say" but more like "Want to say" or "Trying to say."
So are you trying to tell me you don’t need to go to class, Miya-san?

I took the liberty of writing up my own translation of episode 1. I've posted comments in this thread on all the significant differences I noticed between my translation and what was on the wiki page; the rest is mainly just differences in wording.
I've uploaded my translation to mediafire (I hope everyone can view .rtf files), which you can download below, in case anyone would like to use it for their own personal review or comparison to the translation on the wiki page.
http://www.mediafire.com/file/ey7v9bc8m417hif/Risa-Miya_Theater_01.rtf

If you happen to see anything in my version that you like though, please feel free to incorporate it into the translation on the wiki page (You may credit me if you like, AXYPB). I just didn't want to be so presumptuous as to arbitrarily start applying my changes since many of them are simply a matter of phrasing.

I will say though, that I don't like seeing laughter translated as Ufufu. When read in English it sounds like Oo-foo-foo which doesn't sound like any kind of laugh I've ever heard.

I will begin reviewing Episode 2 some time today or tomorrow.

>> No.5315  

Thank you all and I didn't check common romanization, and "Kusaka Mao", these are my mistake.

吉田松陰
I checked some books, common expression is Shōin, not Shoin (Shōin = Shooin or Shoh'in). Wiki also.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yoshida_Sh%C5%8Din
Indeed, real pronunciation is so.
But I feel Shouin is better because of English characters and pronunciation, and straight wapuro(^^) typing.

"Taiga drama" is clearly refer to "Shinsengumi!", I agree to Ralen.
And it is clear for readers.

>In this case 言いたい isn't "Like to say" but more like "Want to say" or "Trying to say."

Episode 2.

My listening comprehension isn't very good (which is why these transcriptions from K01 are invaluable; thanks again), but I did happen to notice a few slight discrepancies in the Japanese script for this episode.
それより美夜さん、そんなにたくさん、んーと、ええっ!
There seems to be a こそ missing here.
それより美夜さんこそ、そんなにたくさん、んーと、ええっ!

初めてよ。少し飲んでみてもいいかしら?
Should be
初めて見たわ。少し飲んでみてもいいかしら?

Here are my notes on the translation itself. Some of these are just conjecture on my part if I didn't understand something well myself, so anyone please feel free to correct me if I've made any incorrect assumptions.

午前の授業をサボったと思ったら、また中庭にいたのね。
Maybe she stayed in the courtyard and skipped class this morning again.

My interpretation of this is:
I suspected she’d skipped morning classes, only to find her in the courtyard again.
It seems to be more of an assertion than conjecture. Like saying "I suspected as much."

完全に、計画的犯行ね。
This is a scheme, no matter how you look at it.

Calling it a "scheme" makes it sound like it's got some ulterior motive.
I interpreted it as just pointing out that Miya intentionally planned the whole thing in advance (as evidenced by her bringing her lunch with her).
So this must have been her plan all along.

注意しなくちゃ。
I have to take caution.

In this case, wouldn't this be more like "I have to give her a warning"?
I’d better give her a talking to, is how I translated it.

誰も友達がいないから、きっといつもそうなのね。
I'm sure she doesn't have any real friend.
Is more like "Because she has no friends, I'm sure she's always like this."
She doesn’t have any friends, so I’ll bet she always eats alone.

私なんて、パン二つとイチゴ牛乳だけなのに。
Compared to that, I only have two kinds of bread and a strawberry milk.

Should that be "Two kinds" or just "Two pieces"?
All I’ve got is a couple of pieces of bread and a strawberry milk.

そんなガツガツ食べていないのに。
And yet you didn't gobble food up fiercely or anything.

I'm not certain of this one. At first, I also thought she was referring to Miya, but based on something Risa says near the end, I now think she's referring to herself, saying she's not eating as fast as Miya.
I’m not anywhere near that fast.

こういうときは、わたくしが箸で、あーんとかして、食べさせた方がいいのかしら?
I only have one pair of chopsticks. I wonder if I should lend it, or I had better feed you myself?

Should be more like:
It’s just that, in these situations, shouldn’t you hold your mouth open so I can feed you from my chopsticks?

>>5247
I think it's well enough understood by English speaking audiences that "Strawberry Milk" is just strawberry-flavored, and doesn't actually contain strawberries.

牛乳とイチゴをジューサーにかけたものとは、また違う味ねえ。
It tastes different from putting milk and strawberry juice together.

Only a slight change:
It tastes completely different from putting milk and strawberries into a juicer.

今日はそれでも遅い方だったわ、璃紗さんと一緒だったから。
Today has been slow ever since I was together with Risa-san.

I'm not certain I understand this sentence correctly, but it sounds as though Miya is saying she slowed herself down (once again) to come down to Risa's level.
I even slowed down my eating today since I was with you, Risa-san.

私も早く食べて、午後の授業の準備でもしようかしら。
I should eat quickly too. Is there anything I should prepare for classes this afternoon?

This doesn't seem like a question, but just a volitional statement.
I should hurry up and finish too, so I can get ready for this afternoon’s classes.

ん? そういえば、このパンとイチゴ牛乳、さっきまで美夜さんが……
こ、これって、もしかして、あの、間接キス?
べ、別にそんなの気にするほどでもないことよね。
なんでもないわ。 うくっ(食べる)
Mm? Come to think of it, this bread and strawberry milk, just now with Miya-san…
Th-That was… Could that be, by any chance, an indirect… kiss?
I-I am not going to worry about something like that.
*It was nothing. *Omph**

This looks mostly fine, but I included the whole paragraph since Saluki had a request to check it.

The way this is currently phrased makes it sound like Risa is thinking of an indirect kiss that may have already occurred when Miya ate off her food and drank from her milk.
But the way I interpret it is that she's concerned about the indirect kiss that's about to take place once she finishes the bread and milk Miya just had her mouth on a moment ago.
Huh? Now that I think about it, Miya-san just had her mouth on this bread and strawberry milk...
Is- Is this what they call an... an indirect kiss?
W- Well it’s nothing worth getting myself worked up about.
It doesn’t really matter.

Once again, I have included my complete translation as a separate file for anyone's personal use or for additional comparison if anybody would like.
As before, I have only pointed out the significant differences in my comments above.

I saw the video again. You are right, my mistakes.

注意しなくちゃ。
"I have to give her a warning" / "I have to watch her more carefully"
From Japanese sentence and Risa's acting, both meanings are possible.
I think , because of story flow,

> I’d better give her a talking to

is better.

私なんて、パン二つとイチゴ牛乳だけなのに。

>Should that be "Two kinds" or just "Two pieces"?
>All I’ve got is a couple of pieces of bread and a strawberry milk.

Japanese meaning is just "Two pieces".

Umm, here is simply Risa's feeling from Miya eating. My opinion, here will be as is.

Thank you once again KumaIchigo.

Just to confirm, do you you agree with:

>今日はそれでも遅い方だったわ、璃紗さんと一緒だったから。
>I even slowed down my eating today since I was with you, Risa-san.

In other words, Miya is saying she has slowed herself (again) for Risa's sake?
That's the only other part I wasn't sure about.

Also,

>そんなガツガツ食べていないのに。
>And yet you didn't gobble food up fiercely or anything.

The reason I thought this might be Risa referring to herself is because at the end, Risa says
だからって、そんなスピードじゃ食べられないわよ。
The だからって sounds to me like she is trying to repeat herself from earlier. So I thought both places were her talking about herself being unable to eat so quickly.

>Besides I want to know Is there a certain style of translating "あーん" ? :-)

I would usually translate it as
Say "Ahh."
or
Open wide and say "Ahh."

I may take a look at episode 3 later today.

>> No.5345  

Here is my translation of episode 3.
http://www.mediafire.com/file/j56gw3sgygbkalk/Risa-Miya_Theater_03.rtf

I put # marks next to a few lines I wasn't sure about.

First is this line.
The transcript has it as:
あ、でも美夜は友達とか、そういうのじゃなかったわ。そういうのは、なし、なし!
But it sounded to me like:
あ、でも美夜は友達とか、そういうのじゃなかったわ。今は、なし、なし!

Either way, I'm not sure of the meaning. Risa is trying to convince herself that she and Miya aren't friends, I understand that much, but I don't quite get the nuance.
This is one of the lines I marked in the script as questionable.
#Although it’s not like Miya is a friend exactly. She’s not, really!

ミカ女一の優等生はわたくしの方が相応しくないかしら。
#You don’t think I’d be good enough for the top student at St. Michael’s?

Again, I get the basic meaning, but I'm not sure I understand the nuance.
Is she irritated because Risa doesn't seem to think she would stand a chance with Yuuna?

たしかに美夜さんは天才かもしれないわ。でも、生活態度は最低でしょう?
#I never know what’s going to come out of your mouth next.

Is this just a general observation about Miya's impolite speaking habits, or is it in direct reference to what Miya just said?

The last was another issue with the transcript.
It has this:
それ、前にも聞いたわね。でも、それ、おうちでやりなさいよね。学校は勉強するところよ。
But it sounded to me like this:
それ、前にも聞いたわね。でも、おうちでやりなさいよね。学校は勉強するところよ。

Those are the only points I had questions or comments on.
Of course it's completely possible I made mistakes elsewhere, so please feel free to point out anything you think is questionable or may be in error.

>> No.5350  

>>5345

About transcribe errors, thank you for your correction. XD

>#Although it’s not like Miya is a friend exactly. She’s not, really!

It is Miya's "Tsun" and exactly "Risa is trying to convince herself".
I feel this is good.

>#You don’t think I’d be good enough for the top student at St. Michael’s?
>Again, I get the basic meaning, but I'm not sure I understand the nuance.
>Is she irritated because Risa doesn't seem to think she would stand a chance with Yuuna?

Miya's background is not clear now. and there is a possibility that is the reason why Miya think Yuuna is 3rd year, I feel.
Anyway, now (= still ep3), this sentence should be straight translation.

>何を言い出すのかと思ったら。
>たしかに美夜さんは天才かもしれないわ。でも、生活態度は最低でしょう?
>#I never know what’s going to come out of your mouth next.
>You may be a genius, Miya-san, but you’ve got a lot to learn about manners.
>
>Is this just a general observation about Miya's impolite speaking habits, or is it in direct reference to what Miya just said?

I feel "生活態度は最低" indicates mainly Miya's skipping classes.
(Miya's speaking is too polite, it is to say 慇懃無礼.)
It seems teachers allow Miya and only Risa is chasing Miya, that is a mystery and I feel the reason of Miya is irritated. These points are probably solved in the game. There is something here but we can't know it now.
Then here also should be straight translation, I think.

from rtf file

>教室に行かなければ済むだけのことでしょう?
>If I don’t go to class, that would put a stop to it.

Miya doesn't care the rumors stop or not. "済む" means just "It's fine". it is not "rumor is end".
Test:
If I don't go to class, I could be asked nothing.
or simply
If I don't go to class, it is fine at all.

>It is Miya's "Tsun" and exactly "Risa is trying to convince herself".

Why is it first そういうのじゃなかった (past)

>I feel "生活態度は最低" indicates mainly Miya's skipping classes.

Maybe this would be better then:
You may be a genius, Miya-san, but you need a serious attitude adjustment.

>(Miya's speaking is too polite, it is to say 慇懃無礼.)

That's interesting to know, I didn't realize there was a word for that.
In English we might call that "Passive aggressive" (similar meaning, but not quite the same).

>教室に行かなければ済むだけのことでしょう?
>Miya doesn't care the rumors stop or not. "済む" means just "It's fine". it is not "rumor is end".

I should have marked that sentence as well.

I think, then:
They can’t bother me if I don’t go to class.

>> No.5372

>Why is it first そういうのじゃなかった (past)

>Is there supposed to be some sort of contrast there?

Umm, it is difficult question... I'm not sure but I try to explain.
Japanese does not have the past perfect tense clearly. It is usually written in past form. (Perhaps English is special at this point in the world)

I remember (I found / I force me to think) Miya has not been my friend (yet). Now she is not (my friend) really!
(Risa hides "yet" to herself) ... It's only my feeling.

>You may be a genius, Miya-san, but you need a serious attitude adjustment.

I agree.

>"Passive aggressive"

I think I understand.
"Miya and I haven't really been friends (before now) and are still not (even now)."

I think the original translation is fine to keep though.

>教室に行かなければ済むだけのことでしょう?

Does 「だけのこと」 apply to the entire phrase 「教室に行かなければ済む」?
Or does it only apply to 済む?

Either way, it seems to be enough to realize that Miya doesn't plan to go to class, so she won't be bothered by her classmate's reactions or rumors.

Okay, I finally signed up for an account at the wiki page so I can make changes myself.

I mostly just made a handful of additional tweaks based on things discussed in this thread that seemed to have been missed. My apologies if they went unchanged intentionally.

Here's a brief outline:

Miya's speech is very polite, so I think she should sound more refined.
I think words like "Yeah" should be avoided, such as in:
Yeah, I skipped.

Also, (and this is just my personal opinion), I think vocal actions should use onomatopoeia instead of being written out.
So rather than seeing Giggle or Sigh it would be better to see Heeheehee or Haaah.

Speaking of giggles, I noticed most of the Fufufu changed to Hehehe but there was still one that read Fufu. I modified that one to be consistent as well.

There were also still some issues with the romanization of the Japanese names.
Yoshida rather than Youshida,
Kusaka rather than Kuzaka,
and Shoin should either be Shōin, or Shouin, based on KumaIchigo's notes in >>5315.

That's all I have left to say about Episode 1.
Now that I've got an account on the wiki, I'll go ahead and upload my translation of Episode 3, along with the changes I made to it based on KumaIchigo's help.

>Can you make different expression between Watashi and Watakushi?

I don't know of a very good way to make these sound different in English.

In my experience, it's better to try to capture the overall feeling of someone's speech when translating, rather than trying to come up with an equivalent for each individual word or phrase.

Sometimes this may mean losing some of the nuance of the original Japanese in certain places where it doesn't translate well, but it can also mean taking liberties in other places where it would sound more natural or appropriate in order to maintain the overall tone.

Do you suppose it's one whole cake? Or many slices of cake?

>お好みのようね。

I translated this as "Take your pick," but if it's one whole cake it may be more like "Help yourself."
Although I originally translated it as "Make yourself at home," but I don't think that's quite the same meaning.
"Make yourself at home" = お楽にしてください。

>> No.5443

I asked my friends about the "otoriyose sweets" site.
That is not so popular and they thought "it just refer to mailorder sweets in general".
The site may be just only model of Risa saying.

>This/These
>Do you suppose it's one whole cake? Or many slices of cake?

Fumm... I imaged whole cake from Miya's character.

>お好みのようね。

Here is just "I guess it is your favorite".
(If it is "Take your pick" or something, "お好みでどうぞ" or "お好みのように(little bit strange)".

Another sentences

>それにもう、物真似はこりごりよ?
>Besides, I’ve had my fill of doing impressions for you.

Japanese meaning is
"I already done plenty of mimic." or "I won't mimic someone again."
Same feeling, but is it ok?

>バウムクーヘンの周りのアイシング、ぱりっとしていておいしいわ。
>Da ishing on dis baumkuchen ish sho crunshy an’ delicioush!

The word "baumkuchen" had become a common Japanese word. Please don't ask me why, I don't know.

When she said 「お好みのようね」 I thought it was the same as 「おこのみのようにして」 (with 「にして」 left out as being implied).

>それにもう、物真似はこりごりよ?

"I've had my fill" means the same thing in English.

I only had one question this time.

>ま、まさか、本当に寂しいの? 冗談よね。
>D- Don’t tell me you’re really going to miss me? You’re kidding.

Normally I would interpret 冗談よね as "I'm joking" but in this context it seems more like "You're joking." Did I understand correctly here?

Aside from that, I didn't really have any questions, but please feel free to proof read (anybody) and make notes or comments as you feel are necessary.

While translating this episode, I believe I finally understood something I had a question about from episode 3.

>>5345

>ミカ女一の優等生はわたくしの方が相応しくないかしら。
>I suppose I’m not good enough for the top student at St. Michael’s.

I originally interpreted this as Miya feeling somewhat dejected that Risa doesn't think she's suitable enough to be with Yuuna (the top student at St. Michael's).
But based on an exchange from episode 5, I now think it's her feeling dejected that Risa doesn't seem to think she suitable enough to be the top student at St. Michael's herself.

That also makes sense with what Risa said next, about Miya being smart enough, but her attitude needing adjustment.
I've amended the translation on the wiki page (although the difference is subtle).

Sorry! I missed this sentence when you talk about.
わたくしの方がふさわしくないかしら。= わたくしの方が、(優菜よりも、)[ふさわしい、のでは、ないかしら。/ふさわしく、ありませんか?]
Then meaning is simply,

Is ゼミナーる the same as 塾?
The word "Seminar" makes me think of 専門家会議. That's why I referred to it as an "event."

>'だから、なんだっていうのよ!'='Then, what is that?!'
>I think the feeling is "What is a matter I'm with Miya-san?! It is not related to seminar!"

Generally "seminar(Germany)" means cramming event, I thought. And Japanese 「セミナー/ゼミナール/ゼミ」 means so.
From E-J dictionary, ((米))専門家会議 だそうです。
(Is it a specialist group? like a task force? Is it major meaning in US?)
Except for local(??) meaning, (大学、大学院の)研究科・研究室、集中講義 from e-progressive E-J dictionary.
And in case of 外来語(imported words) sometimes it is strange. 「ゼミナール(from German pronunciation)」 is a little different from 「セミナー(from English)」, just like "sister" and "seour" Oneesama. :-)
Especially 「大東京ゼミナール」 probably refer to famous real 塾(cramming school) 「代々木ゼミナール Yoyogi Seminar」.

>Is this more like a regular school that takes place during the summer?

Yes. To prepare to entering exam. Silly learning system.

>Seminar

I think this is my deficiency.

I always pictured a seminar as a large group of people in an auditorium or other large space, listening to a lecturer in a passive way (listening only, no discussion).
専門家は教えて、生徒は聞くだけと思った。

But the English dictionary defines a seminar as the opposite of that.
"A small group of students, as in a university, engaged in advanced study and original research under a member of the faculty and meeting regularly to exchange information and hold discussions."

So it seems to have the same meaning of 集中講義. I just misunderstood the English meaning.

>You are a genius and my lover, but you are also one student.

Why "one student"?
Is it different from
"You are a student"?

I understand that Risa is separating Miya as her lover from Miya as a student.

>Sure you make my heart flutter, and you may make me happy, but I can’t allow this!
>This is a major problem for a student to have!

>日本人はほんとに夏休み中にそんなに勉強する?
>アメリカ学生の中には夏休み宿題が不当と考えている。

するんです。
I think one reason is because of Japanese school year starting from April.
Students must be belong to some school's some year even during summer holiday.
Another reason, it is said Japanese universities/colleges are very difficult to enter, easy to graduate.
High school students study hard to prepare to entering exam even in summer.
Then, many gags are made from the situation that 夏休みの最後の日になんにも宿題ができてない。助けてドラえもん!!

Thank you very much for your work. Saluki, I would like to ask again for your input on the edited scripts so I can prepare translated versions of the videos.

Your first pass was helpful, KumaIchigo.

I thought I heard one place where the transcription didn't match the audio though:
At 3:36
それなら二つ作らなくていいでしょ => それなら二つ作らなくて済むでしょ?

Also, one part I understand how to translate, but don't understand Miya's meaning:

>普段がまじめな優等生キャラだから、料理とか、できないと思ってたわ。

How come Miya expects まじめな優等生は料理できない? Shouldn't an upstanding student be able to cook as well?

>I'm still thinking how to treat Risa's 「もうもう、もーう」

もう can be translated lots of different ways.
Geeze.
Sheesh.
Honestly.
Good grief.
Come on.
Any exclamation of exasperation will do.
In episode 6 I even translated 「もうもうもう~!」 as "No, no, no!"
Sometimes I also leave it untranslated and just try to show the exasperation in some other way.

ん? haven't you played Maidens of Michael yet?
In the VN, the selected 5 couples become a group like "event executive committee" and they are called 「ベストカップル/Best Couple(s)」.
It is their group name then "best couple" does not mean top one of the couple.
They are gathering almost everyday for their task, it's called 「ベストカップルの会合/a meeting of "Best Couple(s)"」.

>It is their group name then "best couple" does not mean top one of the couple.

I was afraid that was the case. I'll have to review the previous episodes to change the translations then. I always thought "Best Couple" meant the best couple in the school. Not an assembly of multiple couples.

What do they do at these meetings? Plan world domination through yuri?

One other thing I'm curious about (kind of unrelated). In the character descriptions on Yurin Yurin's website, it says Risa is heir to a foreign company. 「外資系企業令嬢」. But in Risa Miya Theater, it always sounds like Miya is the rich girl while Risa is the commoner.

>> No.5830  

>>5828

>What do they do at these meetings? Plan world domination through yuri?

According to the synopsis of Maidens of Michael, this committee plans school events such as those seen therein. As Kuma Ichigo noted, they were selected for their prominence within the school and their combined influence within their respective student bodies, but the details as to how that came to be will have to be explained by him.

Incidentally, I'm not sure if this is relevant, but in the bonus track of the drama CD Kaede-chan Super Mode, Sara says 「百合は世界を救うのです!」 which can be loosely interpreted as "yuri saving the world" or "yuri making the world go round". This was the same line used to promote Music Box of Memories. It appears that this line has been elevated to a motto of sorts as a result of the success of this series since the drama CD's release in 2009.

Even though I translated that synopsis, I never really got that until now.

>it seemed they would have to stick it out through the coming holidays of Christmas and Valentine’s Day along with four other couples as the committee members for various events.

I never made the connection that all five couples were members of the same "Best Couple's" committee, but rather I assumed Risa and Miya were the sole "Best Couple," while the other four couples were members of various other committees.

That is not mentioned in the VN. It is usual the initial settings are ignored...www
Another case 「外資『系』企業」is usually "the company which foreign capital contributed" and the top is the employed president. Then, 「令嬢」is not always here.

>What do they do at these meetings? Plan world domination through yuri?

I think it's almost correct. ... anyway,
As AXYPB said, they've been planing Christmas, St. Valentain's day and many school events.

>they were selected for their prominence within the school and their combined influence within their respective student bodies

Horaisen Rena-sensei made it school official event and they are selected by students' votes.
And they are officially appointed "the Best Couples" school event executive committee.
They hold additional post. Yuuna and Nanami are environmental management committee and Yuuna is the de facto president of student government. Risa, Kaede, Shizuku are class representative. But they did the both task, they became very busy.

You are helpful. Although I felt the need to revise nearly all the sentences to make them sound more natural in English, your first pass was very helpful in places where I misinterpreted a sentence, or where I had difficulty understanding the meaning of something.

What fortuitous timing. After weeks of inactivity I just happened to check this thread by chance today.

I think the video is fine, but I would put the title in title case ("Chasing Day by Day" instead of "Chasing day by day").

Also, and this is more of an observation really, is that it was a little distracting at first seeing different fonts in the video from what I've become accustomed to in the English patches of the games.

The word wrapping is a bit inconsistent, sometimes sentences go to the end of the frame, sometimes they break in the middle of it, in some instances it's both (like the first frame).

Thank you for the release.

Font:
Original game is using MS Mincho for speaker, MS Gothic (not MS UI Gothic) for text, probably.
I think MS Gothic is more clear and same feeling as original.
(Japanese MS UI Gothic is useful <9pt small, I think)

Word wrap: (Basic rules)
・Originally, the Japanese, there is no concept of word wrap. Line ends are aligned right. You can usually ignore the continuous of word or sentence.
・However, there are illegal characters that should not be at the line beginning.

>、。ゃゅょっ」...

・「」 brackets should be new line. (Usually, after the brackets is also new line, but it is not so severe rule.)
・If European word or numeric characters are in sentence, then the word is wrapping.
Aegisub is not adopted for the Japanese line beginning illegal chalacters.

MS Gothic was more problematic for me when I first inserted the Japanese text; it would not wrap automatically at all. I selected MS UI Gothic as it allowed me to insert more text per line.

Using these rules, I can change the Japanese subtitles to use MS Gothic, but all of the text will have to be broken manually, and thus it will take longer to process. Will this be an acceptable compromise?

At first, set the wrap style = no wrap, or insert "(\q2)" to each line. Then \n or \N force line break. (When I tested, right margin is not enough to formatting)
I guess it is not standard method, I'll study Aegisub.

I've encoded episode 4, which introduces minor changes to the subtitle format. In previous encodes, seeking the video will cause the name plate to be lost until the speaking character changes. I've corrected this by duplicating the name subtitles for every line instead of every group of lines. I also changed the fade for the episode title and credits subtitles to properly match the fades to and from black. As this is a minor stylistic update, I plan on updating the previous three episode downloads when I finish subtitling all episodes and release a torrent of them.

Rika-chama and I went through and QCed the first five episodes of this series. Updates include typesetting fixes (better transforms, positioning, etc.), timing fixes (lots of lines had no lead-in, line splits added where applicable), phrasing improvements (editan'), and error fixes (missing names, typos, YP link, etc.). Here's a link to the updated scripts:

If anyone with the right skill set wants to try to help out, let us know.

>> No.6988  

>>6972
I think a lot of the phrasing changes are mostly trivial.

I also disagree with many of the changes to Miya's dialogue, since wording which I used specifically to make her sound more formal and polite has now been altered to more casual speech ("Yes" changed to "Yeah" and the like.)

One change in particular I did like was in Episode 4 though.
"How did I let myself get carried away into having tea" -> "How did I let myself get roped into having tea."

Other notes:

>{"bears" repeating... stuffed bear.... icwutudidther}

Who said it was a stuffed bear? It's just identified as a stuffed animal.

>{V123: neither of these things seem like proper nouns to me} (Last Ticket prize and Second Best Lottery)

Maybe Last Ticket prize doesn't need to be capitalized, but Second Best Lottery is a specific reference to Banpresto's Ichiban Kuji ("Best Lottery" or "No. 1 Lottery").

>{baumkuchen is German, no real reason not to TL, literal is "tree cake," but for meaning "layer cake" is better}

I disagree with this on the grounds that baumkuchen is a specific kind of dessert, and not just generic cake.

You wouldn't translate "crème brûlée" to "pudding" just because the name is French.

In summary, although I appreciate the effort and welcome you to point out and correct any errors you happen to find in the translation scripts, I feel that these revisions (to the dialogue at least, I can't speak to the timing changes) were at best insignificant, and at worst actually changed the feeling I was trying to convey or preserve with the characters' dialogue.

>> No.6990  
>I think a lot of the phrasing changes are mostly trivial.

Editing is all about tweaking things to flow smoother. They may seem inconsequential to some, but imho it helps a lot. There was also a bunch of incorrect grammar across the vids — like comma splices — that was fixed.

>I also disagree with many of the changes to Miya's dialogue, since wording which I used specifically to make her sound more formal and polite has now been altered to more casual speech ("Yes" changed to "Yeah" and the like.)

Changed her one "yeah" line in script 4 back to "yes." I usually default to a bit casual for students, but I know that some of the SH girls speak very formally.

>Maybe Last Ticket prize doesn't need to be capitalized, but Second Best Lottery is a specific reference to Banpresto's Ichiban Kuji ("Best Lottery" or "No. 1 Lottery").

That's pretty much what I needed to know. Capitalized it again since it references a specific lottery and isn't just saying it's second best in a generic way.

>I disagree with this on the grounds that baumkuchen is a specific kind of dessert, and not just generic cake.

I know that translating foods is always a point of contention. I still stand by this since as far as I know, unlike crème brûlée, baumkuchen is not a well-known dessert in the English-speaking audience. Needing to open google up just to know what they're talking about is a distraction, so I think it's a good idea to keep this change.

Thanks for the feedback, Ralen. I'm not trying to interfere with anyone's work; just trying to use my years of fansubbing experience to make these releases as polished as possible. Also, if you give me your email here or on irc I can add you to the dropbox folder where I've been keeping the scripts and vids.

I'm not English native speaker and I can't feel the nuances, my role is rough translator in this series.

But I disagree that,

> I usually default to a bit casual for students, but I know that some of the SH girls speak very formally.

Some Sonohana girls speak too much formally speaking, that IS Sonohana. In original Japanese sentences, even if subject or object is omitted, readers can recognize who is speaking or mentioned.
I can't feel exactly the best balance of polite and casual, but I hope, readers should know who is speaking only from the text.
Original Japanese text is so.
(I know sonohana is not a literature masterpiece, so 'I hope')

About baumkuchen and some special words, we already discussed in this board. They have each special meanings but it is no meaning for non-Japanese readers. I can't decide which is better. That is also a issue of balance.
If I were Yurinyurin's producer, I'd take baumkuchen. :-)

I and probably Ralen also take effort to keep original atmosphere ... tendency. I can't judge the best balance but I hope Risa and Miya are clearly different at speaking.

Virus123 doesn't do any TLC, he needs it to check the quality of the subs, i.e. if the lead-in/lead-out is correct, if the subtitles are saying something different than what is actually being said, etc. This is typical for Editing and QC in fansubs.

What anon said. I'm not a TL; I'm everything else. The words are only one element of the final release. If the words aren't timed well or don't match the voices well as far as length and inflection, the final release falls flat regardless of how great the translation is. Also, checking the typesetting for each vid is important. So far, I've had to change the transform timings for the end credits on each script, and the positioning wasn't the same for vid 6.

tl;dr: To qc properly, you need something close to the final product to work with.

Again, I have to say I find most of the alterations to the dialogue are either trivial, or they negatively impact the tone or meaning being conveyed by the translation (primarily in changes to Miya's dialogue from refined sounding speech to more standard or casual sounding speech).

>Ever the upstanding class representative.

to

>You're always the upstanding class representative, aren't you?

for example, or

>I have a reason far more important than that.

to

>I have a far more important reason than that.

Other changes I feel actually alter the meaning somewhat, such as

>Couples are always causing trouble for one another, aren't they?

to

>Couples are always bothering each other, aren't they?

or

>As long as that's true, it's not like I can say you need to study harder.

to

>Well, If that's true, it's not like I can say you need to study harder.

One change I did like, however, was the change from

>There you go making random assertions again.

to

>There you go making blanket statements again.

Also

>be more tsun, I dare you

Don't you mean "be more tsun, I dere you"?

>> No.7214  
>Ever the upstanding class representative.
>You're always the upstanding class representative, aren't you?

This is a stock translation. The modification has the same meaning but is phrased in a way that people actually speak in English.

>Couples are always causing trouble for one another, aren't they?
>Nobody is bothered by it{skipping class}. Nobody but you, that is.
>So you don't mind bothering me?!
>Couples are always bothering each other, aren't they?

Again, this is a 'way that people speak' issue. People are annoyed or bothered by things, not troubled by them. The words aren't the same, but the meaning remains in this context.

>Oh, I know! It bothers the teachers.
>That isn't true. I'm at the top of all my classes.
>As long as that's true, it's not like I can say you need to study harder.
>Well, If that's true, it's not like I can say you need to study harder.

I get what you're saying here. I think the original is too conditional, though. Makes it sound like she might stop being top of her class at any point, which doesn't seem likely. Also, hurr typo. I'm thinking "Well, since that's true, it's not like I can say you need to study harder." Using "since" adds in that conditional context by saying it's true Risa can't complain about Miya's study habits but if her top-of-the-class status were to change, she could bother her about studying again.

They mean the exact same thing to me, and I had to re-read the first one a couple of times before I got what she was trying to say. the 2nd one is more clear.

>Ever the upstanding class representative.
>This is a stock translation.

This is not a stock translation. Granted, I don't know many people who talk this way in real life, but this sort of phrasing is very common in (American) writing.
("Ever the gentleman, isn't he?" "Ever the optimist, aren't you?" and so on.)

>Couples are always bothering each other, aren't they?
>Again, this is a 'way that people speak' issue. People are annoyed or bothered by things, not troubled by them.

First of all, the translation was "causing trouble for" not "troubled by."
Second of all, in keeping with Miya's refined speech, it wouldn't be at all out of place for her to say she was "troubled by" something.
Finally, I think there's a very big difference in the nuance and tone between
"Couples are always bothering one another"
and
"Couples are always causing trouble for one another."

>>7214
>>7215

>As long as that's true
>If that's true

The first one is a statement of fact.
It's already established that she's getting good grades, and "as long as" that continues to be the case, she doesn't need to study more.

The second one is a supposition.
It's unclear as to whether or not she's getting good grades, but "if" that happens to be the case, she doesn't need to study more.

>I think the original is too conditional, though.

I'm open to suggestions on how to make it sound better, but the original dialogue was conditional.
その事実がある限り -> "For as long as that's true" (or to put it another way, "Until that is no longer true.")

This is why it's not a good idea to rewrite a translation without knowing what the original says.

>("Ever the gentleman, isn't he?" "Ever the optimist, aren't you?" and so on.)

This IS a stock translation phrase. It's the same as "It can't be helped" or "It's just like <name>". Just because people WRITE that way, doesn't mean the SPEAK that way. You could make an argument for formality, but with THAT particular phrase, it's like gg fansubs trolling on their subtitles. Just don't do it.

>Couples are always bothering each other, aren't they?
>Couples are always causing trouble for one another, aren't they?

I'm sorry, I've been speaking/writing english for a long time now. I'm also native as I was born here in America and have a business degree, so I'm fairly familiar with talking and writing. These 2 phrases, when they're said about people mean the SAME thing. Now, that said, it shouldn't be a big deal b/c I've heard both said about the same amount of time. Now, if you were going with the "trouble" line, I would make it:
"Couples are always causing trouble for each other, aren't they?"
but either is fine.

>The first one is a statement of fact.
>It's already established that she's getting good grades, and "as long as" that continues to be the case, she doesn't need to study more.The second one is a supposition.

I'm sorry, I don't want to make a big argument out of this, but I honestly can't believe anyone would think "Ever the (noun), aren't you?" is a stock translation. I can't even imagine what you might be thinking this a stock translation of.
It's not like "It can't be helped" (which is obviously shouganai) or "As expected of" (which is obviously sasuga ni).
This is a very, very, very common English expression. Just google the phrase "ever the * aren't you" with the quotations and asterisk and you'll see numerous examples.
Hell, just google "Ever the upstanding" and you'll still get more than 10 pages worth of results.

In the interest of timely releases for this and future episodes, I must ask all parties involved to come to a compromise regarding semantics. I sympathize with the desire to polish the releases as much as possible, but I feel that actual releases are being unnecessarily delayed because of it. Presenting English language credentials to argue one translation choice over another has caused issues here in the past. If you must advocate a particular wording, please find a more objective reason to support it.

I've reviewed the current version in Dropbox and made some changes to it. However, until all members give their support, I cannot publish it with a clear conscience. Again, please find a compromise for word choices as soon as possible.

Please make an effort to avoid debates of this nature in the future. Again, while I want to ensure that the translations are optimal, I don't feel that the amount of effort exerted in the above replies is worth the resulting delay.

>> No.7308  

As far as I'm concerned, the scripts for the remaining episodes are complete, and the only revisions that should be made at this stage are to correct inaccuracies in the translations, or grammatical or typographical errors.

Don't misinterpret this as an ego thing; I'm fully willing to listen to criticism on technical points, but at this late stage in the game nothing is accomplished by having people rewrite the scripts to suit their own personal tastes.

Please realize that English is my first language, and the dialogue I wrote sounded natural to me when I wrote it. If I used a particular word choice, I more than likely had a reason for it.
I'm not trying to say "I'm a native speaker so I'm right and you're wrong," I just want everyone to give me the benefit of the doubt that I have a strong comprehension of what written and spoken English look and sound like.
That said, even within American English, there are regional and dialectical variations, so what sounds natural to me may not sound natural to someone else, and vice-versa.

I don't plan to argue any more points for any of the remaining episodes. As I said, I'm more than willing to discuss technical issues, but the time for arguing semantics has passed. I also don't like the way arguments like these affect me, since I usually can't help but get worked up and stressed about them (in particular responding to posts like >>7266) and I don't like the way that makes me feel.
I already discussed my intentions with AXYPB, and had not planned to visit this thread again, but he said I should at least explain myself here, so there it is.

Miya is emphasizing that her catered lunches are just something that gets delivered to her house, and don't have any kind of personal touch.

Originally:
All I’m bringing with me is something that gets delivered each day.

I've encoded episode 8: http://youtu.be/INSn549guu0

I made changes to references to Best Couple to imply that it is a collective rather than a single couple chosen by popular vote per >>5827. Please advise if these changes were adequate.

For the most part I think the modifications are fine, but here are some suggestions for slight alterations I think might sound better.

At 2:39
How did we even get chosen as one of St. Michael's Best Couples anyway?

At 3:14
when compared to others who have been chosen as a Best Couple.

And also, just as a note in advance of the inevitable revisions that are going to be posted, I intentionally had Risa saying the actual words "Boo-hoo-hoo" at 6:57. The reason is that in the Japanese audio she doesn't just make sobbing sounds, she actually says the onomatopoeia for sobbing, "shiku-shiku-shiku."

As a side note unrelated to the translation, I noticed in recent episodes you started offsetting the end credits so that they no longer obscure the original credits. I think this is fine, although in this episode it becomes a little crowded and difficult to read. I honestly don't have an alternative suggestion though, other than going back to the old method of obscuring the credits again.

At 5:16, I think there was an error in the original translated script.

Due to potential timing issues with episode 10, I've chosen not to encode it until Virus123 examines the timings. Particularly, the first segment has unusually long lead-ins for each line due to four characters being on-screen, and kissing sounds are in the translated scripts, but commented out in the current version of the subtitle file. The credits also need to be re-typeset. Regardless, I've uploaded it here for those who want to review it: http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?688h55eoxwa33az

Due to the heavily misaligned timings in the first segment in this episode, I've elected to reconstruct it manually. While examining the timings to determine how to address this issue, Virus123 has edited the first six lines of dialogue.

I must also note that I plan to make similar corrections for previous episodes before the batch release. For instance, episode 7 does not fade in from black, and I'd like to fix this before the final release.

In terms of the subtitles themselves (as opposed to the timings) I have no additional comments for this episode.

Big props to AXYPB on this one for taking the extra time to fix the terribly timed transitions in the vid.

When this is all done I'm going to create and seed a torrent of all these, so we'll have the direct downloads on Petalsgarden as well as a torrent. ^__^

Kuma Ichigo, some lines for kissing sounds were missing in the Japanese translation for episode 10. Please review the Japanese subtitle script and fill in the missing lines, consisting of "{}". I will release the episode when it is finished.

Man can't someone translate just the Eris-Shizuku route, simply script translation on wiki would be enough. From my limited japanese understanding I could figure that Maidens of Michael have a heartwarming Eris-Shizuku storyline.
