Masterpost: Yana Toboso’s blog/twitter post translations
People who visit my blog on PC probably know that there’s already amasterpost of all my past blog/twitter post translations, but the majority of people seems to use the mobile version of tumblr and therefore have no access to it (?), so here’s a masterpost that is hopefully accessible to everyone! Also, I’d appreciate it if you could check this masterpost *first* before asking me “Has Yana ever talked about XX on her blog?” xD
Disclaimer: I’m not a professional translator but just a
normal Japanese Kuro fan with intermediate English skills, and I
primarily translate all these Kuro related posts for myself, namely to
improve my English! All posts marked with * are proofread by my
precious, lovely friend minacchin though (thank you for your help<3), so you can expect a flawless English translation :)
Tips:If you don’t know where to start reading, here are some tips. The posts in bold are the ones that got over 1000 notes. And the ones in italic are my personal faves that I found funny/interesting and definitely recommend you to read! :)
And finally, thank you to all those people who read and liked my translations and sent me lovely, encouraging messages in the past 2.5 years! ♡♡
well i really looooveeee seeing these two together!!! nishii yukito is super cute while mario is so gentle. sadly this is the last episode and i can’t wait for the new season! i also read the manga so more episodes mean more tairakau x nao moments yeah! i would love to make their moments gifs later if i get the hq files :3
Below the cut are 215+ faceclaims of colour who are, or could pass as, teenagers that you could use to make your high school roleplays more diverse! Organised by ethnicity, gender and age, with their specific ethnicity listed.
If you have any more suggestions feel free to send me an ask!
To be honest, I couldn’t get this song out of my head. And this is my first time doing subtitles too…So if I made a mistake anywhere I am sorry (although I did spend a couple of hours+ writing down the script and translating it word-for-word). I screen recorded the ending and encoded the subs, so the quality is not great. So yeah… I hope you all like it! :D
I was thinking about sharing this or not, but I decided this time I’m going to share the “FIVE” Gakuen Tengoku - Men’s 5 with T.M. CD with you. I bought the limited edition but I’m only giving you the tracks, so don’t ask for the video. Actually, this is the only thing about FIVE I’m going to share, so don’t ask me for the DVD either (not in the near future at least).
When I decided to share things, I didn’t think too much about rules, but since there are people who don’t respect something basic like don’t upload the files to streaming sites, I’m adding a few things before give you the link.
The other day, I went out for a meal with the one whom everyone loves, Sato Ryuji, and the one whom everyone admires, Ogoe Yuuki, and before I knew it, it was going at quite a good pace.
I also realised one other thing. Ryuji, you are way too unskillful at peeling a hard-boiled egg. All that was left was just the yolk!
Over a year has passed since Kitazono Ryo’s Tweet and it’s nice to know that some things haven’t changed. LOL! But, Ryuji, seriously, for someone who can cook as well as you do, how can you be that bad at peeling hard-boiled eggs?! xDDDDD
Weiss Kreuz live - Dream Cast. Because I could, that's why.
Right. Since I finished rewatching Weiss Kreuz recently (oh gods, I first saw the series over 10 years ago. GODS.) - I got that idea and it really didn’t want to let me go. I think that WK, after a few adjustments, would actually make a pretty good drama series, soooo I decided to write down my ideas for the cast - for both Weiss and Schwarz.
Fujimiya Aya - Shiraishi Shunya
Why: I know Shunya can play the stoic type very well, he has a fitting body type, and something in his face reminds me of Koyasu Takehito himself. I’m not sure if he’d pull off that “TAKATORIIIII SHIINEEEEE” scream, but then again - there is only one person who can do this perfectly, and that’s Koyasu himself XD So Shunya is my type for Aya.
Hidaka Ken - Sano Gaku
Why: Again - I think Sano can play a character like Ken. They both have that… kind-boy-next-door look, and they’re both athletic guys. And if I remember correctly, Gaku was also good at football. Sano it is then.
Kudou Youji - Hosogai Kei / Mizushima Hiro
Why: While my first choice would be Kei - he has the right look and voice in my opinion, Mizushima also has that vibe, so he’d be my second choice XD
Tsukiyono Omi - Nishii Yukito
Why: Omi, especially in the manga, looks younger than he is. Nishii has that trait, and in my opinion his boyish baby face fits Omi just right. He’d also be the smallest of the team.
I have to admit, finding actors for playing Schwarz was hard for me. Mainly because ¾ of them are supposed to be foreigners in Japan, being American, German and Irish, and I honestly have no idea if there’re any white actors in the Japanese show-business industry that’d suit the roles “XD But at the same time, I think that in the live adaptation they’d use either Japanese actors or actors with mixed heritage anyway, so I just went that way too.
Brad Crawford - Shirota Yuu
Why: Something in his face makes me think it’d be actually a good choice, though I have to admit, I’m not that sure. Then again, no one else comes to my mind, Shirota has the very right height, and I think he could do well in that role.
Schuldig - Aoki Tsunenori
Why: While Tsune doesn’t even have a mixed heritage, I think his smirk would fit Schuldig’s personality, and I know he can play a manipulative bastard just fine XD
Naoe Nagi - Takasugi Mahiro / Mizuishi Atom
Why: Both boys are unfortunately a bit too tall (and maybe even a bit too old already - I mean Nagi was 15 in the series, while both Mahi and Atom are already 18) but in my opinion they have the right look, and they both played a similar character before. (And we know Mahi looks good in a suit XD)
Farfarello - Inoue Masahiro
Why: Inoue’s nasal voice, lanky body and full lips reminds me of Farfarello traits, plus, Inoue probably also can play a mad man XD
Youji - Mizushima Hiro
Nagi - Mizuishi Atom
There, I let it go! I hope it was at least a bit enjoyable!
Any thoughts? XD
(No picture is mine, thank you all kind people who posted them!)
Hi everyone! I was planning to have out Episodes 5 and 6 but, I haven’t finished episode 6 yet due to me stressing as usual and getting a lack of sleep. I will be on mid-semester break after my final class that I have this morning for 2 weeks. So then I will be able to finish the rest of the episodes during that time!
As usual, the link to the softsubs are in the masterpost –> HERE
If wanting the HardSub, please send me an ASK! (NO MESSAGES)
No re-uploading the subs! (and Hardsubs) And the other rules for the SoftSub are in the Masterpost. Rules for the HardSub will be given when asked for.
