I ended up staying just as late again... but to be fair, this one was a lengthy one.

Start of the 2nd case here!

Gotdam, it's been a while. I forgot all that pain I suffered long ago and really underestimated how long investigation sections would last. But it was fun. It's always fun in the end.

Pfft, that IS a lot! Daily updates of this size would be crazy!

Quote:
In JP, it’s the show about “Bojack Warrior - Nanisaman”, the superhero who annoys his enemies’ so much that they turn up their noses… or maybe it’s because he stinks? (Japanese pun.) Maybe both.

Ngl, for a moment there I thought this was some prophetic reference to Bojack Horseman, but it’s more likely a reference to Bo Jackson, the American baseball legend. “Nanisama” means “someone of importance”.


Bojack Bujin comes from, err bojakubujin (傍若無人), 'outrageous', 'insolent' etc. 'Nanisama' is usually used as in a negative way お前何様なんだ?/ who the hell are you!'. 鼻につく is an expression meaning 'getting fed up with something' or 'getting tired of something' so the idea is that Bojak Warrior Nanisama is a character who's like the cocky annoying version of a normal hero character.

Quote:
Incidentally, the “saman” may be a reference to Samantabhadra, one Bodhisattva of the fundamental trinity in Buddhism who is associated with Buddhist practice and meditation. Also, they gave him sparky-zappy powers because “電動” (dendou), electric, and “伝道” (dendou), missionary work, are homophones.


I don't think it's a reference to Samantabhadra actually: the joke is much simpler Dendo Dendo Shi Saman Saman. It's a name that repeats itself.

Quote:
<Phoenix>
ラベルを張り替えてあるんだ。
みぬきには、ナイショだよ。
I switched the labels. Don’t
tell Trucy, ‘kay?

<Apollo>
(そこまでして飲みたいのか‥‥)
(What can I say, the man
loves his grape juice.)


Reminds me of that blog article by Takumi where he confessed he'd pour some kind of liquor in another bottle so he could drink it at the office...

Quote:
究極の“みそ”を求めて
‥‥1年と3ケ月!
The secret’s in the soup! I’ve
been searching for the perfect
soup for a year 'n’ a half.

As I said above, his secret ingredient is miso. Why they had to change this in the localization, I dunno. Most Americans are familiar with miso, even if they don’t use it, since it’s a word that has long melded into the English language. Perhaps they wanted to make this noodle shop a bit more vaguely Asian rather than strictly Japanese? Then again, many Asian noodle shops can also include miso…


The 'miso' used here isn't the ingredient 'miso', but the other meaning of miso (it's a pun). Kinda hard to give it a single translation, but 'miso' is often used in sentences like 'the good thing about that thing is..' or 'the beauty of it' 'the secret behind it is...' etc. That's 'miso' too.

Quote:
In JP, the doggo’s name is Renge, which is the Japanese word for those Chinese-style soup spoons you’d see in restaurants sometimes. (Like the Chinese, the Japanese also distinguish between these kinds of spoons vs the usual Western silverware.) It can also mean “lotus flower”, since a lot of these kinds of spoons are decorated with lotus flowers. All in all a cute and fitting name.


Etymology of that word derives from the fact those spoons look like petals of a lotus flower.

Quote:
On a more serious note, I’m surprised he’d even react in the original script too. It’s not that uncommon for food stall vendors to start early and end early, whether you’re in Japan or anywhere else. Being a small biz owner leaves you vulnerable, more or less, and in a city in Japanifornia, I’d be surprised anyone would want to be outside at night, what with all the murders going around.


These kind of food stalls usually start late though in Japan. They usually have licenses to stand at certain places between certain times, and these types of stalls especially usually serve the late night market. Fukuoka has the largest population of yatai and most of them only start at late, so you usually see them (hired workers) start pulling them around town later afternoon. And depending on how big a stall is, it also takes time to actually prepare and boil the soup. I've seen restaurants close for a day because they had somehow ruined their day stock of soup that morning, meaning they couldn't even open...

Quote:
Wait a second. It just hit me now. This game was released a mere couple years after Ryu Ga Gotoku released in Japan and was a huge hit. Same goes for its sequel the next year. And then this game came along and so happened to feature a case involving the Yakuza… OH MY GOD.

SEGA, CAPCOM, YOU COWARDS! Give us the crossover we’ve all been waiting for, dammit! It’s been 13 YEARS since this game!!

Did you play Project X Zone 2? :3

Ash, whenever I see you respond to my thread, I get excited that I'm getting feedback and anxious that I got a bunch of things wrong. For once I'm relieved I only got a few things wrong, relatively speaking.

I've watched a playthrough of PXZ2, though not all the way, so I only know the general story beats. But needless to say, the "Like a Dragon" chapter was still one of my favorite moments out of the whole game, only second to the chaotic court scene at Orihime's palace. Also, it's great some of the lines that we get from Nick responding to the rest of the cast.

But tbh I would be willing to forgive Sega or Capcom if either of them somehow bring Kiryu or Nick to Smash. I mean, I don't play Smash because I suck at it, but I'm still addicted to Smash content.

Noooo, I love and appreciate you, Ash! Your work and input are foundational to mine, I'm not worthy~~

Every so often I let everyone know that they can expect a few mistakes here and there since I've never actually lived in Japan and have only cursory experiences with the local Japanese American community. If anything, I've just got grit when I work on something I have passion for. Unfortunately, not taking Japanese classes in school means I don't have too many study buddies. Most of my online friends had barely started with Duolingo while that was still a meme, so it wasn't fair that I could flex on them all...

A quick one for the road. Now excuse me, I'm rushing to get in the next part up to make up for my absence yet again lately.

Oh, but it IS the same university. Heck, both Naruhodou's started off with different majors before they went into law. Must run in the family. :)

Technically, the one in DGS is the Yumei Imperial Capital University, while its modern-day variant is "just" Yumei University. Reflects how the real former imperial universities (like Tokyo U, Kyoto U and Kyushu U) aren't called imperial universities anymore.

Not sure if I ever mentioned this, but I have played none of these games in English after T&T, so I'm seeing the English localized text for this game for the first time. Which is why I enjoy reading these posts, because otherwise I'd honestly have no reason to ever come across the English localized version.

Quote:
“Oh. From here on, you’ll greet him with a 'Good Morning, senpai’, okay?”
“…By the way, this is a talent agency, isn’t it?”


Seniority is supposed to be an important deal with actual talent/entertainment agencies in Japan, especially the offices with a legacy, which is why Trucy's so strict on addressing Charley with 'sempai' as well as the 'good morning' greeting. I believe it's custom in the talent industry, but also the backstage television/entertainment industry in Japan to always greet with 'good morning', no matter the actual time of the day (so they'll even say 'good morning' if they come in for a midnight radio show or something like that)

Quote:
Case in point: “karute” from Karte, which is German for “map”. The transition isn’t perfect, of course.


Karte doesn't just mean 'map', it's also a chart or card (same etymology as karte, obviously). So it's used in the sense of chart here. Plenty of examples where imported words change meaning in Japanese (usually by either taking on a broader, or a more specific meaning), but this one is closer to the original word than going from "map" to "medical chart" (though of course it's a more specific word now, as Karte always refers to a medical chart in Japanese).

Quote:
Originally, he refers to him as “kuranke”, which is from the German word "Kranke", which means “sick”

You didn't mention it, so not sure whether you found it in the dictionary, but in Japanese, Kranke means 'patient'.

No worries, I always got you in mind when I share things from the EN script. ;) There are some golden nuggets hidden here and there that a lot of people may not find when they played through too, so I try to share stuff even when I don't have much to add. Though, I try not to flood my posts too much with little things like when the localization can come up with some creative ways to "translate" stuff like "めんどうくさい人だな…"

Thanks for the note about workplace formalities. I was a little unsure of how better to translate that last line, but I get it now.

Haha, I had to use Google Translate for the German because I don't know a lick of it. I hoped it would have been enough since German seems to be a relatively easier language for GT to translate, given more similarities between it and English than with others, but I should've known it wasn't too reliable.

Start of Episode 3!

Please excuse the off-schedule update. I ran into technical difficulties with tumblr last night and threw a fit. Will get to work on the next part and scheduled postings should resume.

Next part. Hm, I would have expected a reply from Ash at some point. Surely, I haven't become such a God at Japanese yet to warrant no corrections or additional details? Maybe he's just busy...

Aw, doodie. I messed up pretty big by missing out on so many entries from the last episode's day 2 investigation, so I've corrected it. Was gonna try to upload the next part of Episode 3, but that will have to wait until tomorrow or so.
