I’ve been translating a lot of databook requests lately, and while I was at it I noticed that there are some characters I care about that don’t have a translation yet (or at least that’s what Narutoversity says).

So, from the series “I can’t believe nobody translated it yet”, Konohamaru’s fourth databook entry. For myself~

NOTE: A couple of times, you will read ‘older brother and leader’: that’s how translated the word 兄貴分 anikibun, which means 'leader among peers’ but it has also the word aniki, older brother, in it. I used both words because Konohamaru calls Naruto his 'boss’, but he also refers to him as “Naruto no niichan” (older brother Naruto).

170518 Cultwo Show

eyewitness account: “around last november, near my house where the children play, this tall and handsome young man in a simple hoodie outfit, read books with the children, peeled mandarins, and played well with them - and it was VIXX’s Leo. I was surprised when I realized. It seemed like he really likes children. Is that somewhere you go often? It was pretty to see (you) laughing and playing with the children.

dj: was there a nephew you knew there? peeling mandarins for them isn’t something easy 
leo: that… at a orphanage… went to play (with them)
dj: you went?
leo: yes yes
dj: ohhhhh 
dj: do you go there often?
leo: yes when time allows

For @momomomochi23 and @fudayk. These are translations of some of the Izaya and Mikado conversation from the videos of the Durarara!! PS Vita game.

Video 1:

Mikado Ryuuamine: What’s wrong, Izaya-san? Your breathing is off.
Izaya Orihara: I just carelessly ran into a monster wearing a bartender uniform. I was almost in a pinch just now.
Mikado Ryuuamine : You’re amazing, Izaya-san. To be able to fight equally with that Shizuo-san.
Izaya Orihara: I don’t grapple with him up front though. But if it comes to that I have a knife.
Mikado Ryuuamine : That’s dangerous. Knives.
Izaya Orihara: This knife is to keep him in check. His violence is much more dangerous.
If I can protect myself from major injuries with just this one knife, don’t you think it’s useful?
Mikado Ryuuamine : I……guess so……


Video 2:

Izaya Orihara: It’s pretty rare to get a call from you that you want to see me. Did something happen?
Mikado Ryuugamine: Actually……in earnest, I wanted some advice.
Izaya: From me? What’s with this, being on ceremony?
Mikado Ryuugamine: yes. In order to face the underground of Ikebukuro, I’ve recently been thinking: That I can’t keep going on like how things are right now. That……I have to get stronger.
Izaya Orihara: ……Hmm. And?
Mikado Ryuugamine: And so what I mean by advice……I thought you could teach me how to throw a knife.
Izaya Orihara: (What kind of turn is this!?)
Mikado Ryuugamine: You can get the better of Shizuo-san with your knife throwing, right? I think if I can throw a knife I could change the world!
Izaya Orihara: You know, Mikado-kun. This is not something you master within a day, and knives are dangerous for an amateur……..
Mikado Ryuugamine: I understand. That’s why I want to learn about it from you! Yesterday I bought introductory throwing knives at the juggling store! Please!
Izaya Orihara: Wait no, this isn’t an exhibition. And at that point, Mikado-kun, if this is about the dispute between the Dollars and Yellow Scarves…….
Mikado Ryuugamine: Ah, if it’s that I’ll cope once I can throw a knife. If we have our knife throwing we can settle any disputes in Ikebukuro!
Izaya Orihara: (Why am I dragged into it!?)


Video 3:

Izaya Orihara: Mikado-kun, how is your knife training?
Mikado Ryuugamine: I gave up already.
Izaya Orihara: Already? That was pretty fast.
Mikado Ryuugamine: For a period of time I thought knives were good, but……I think with just that it won’t solve the problems with the Dollars.
Izaya Orihara: That’s wise. But if that’s the case what are you going to do? Didn’t you want strength?
Mikado Ryuugamine: Yes. I thought about it, but…….I thought of trying to wear a black coat like yours.
Izaya Orihara: ……You went into an unexpected direction again.
Mikado Ryuugamine: They say the first thing of anything is to start with the looks. If I wear it I’ll be able to run away splendidly like you can, right!?
Izaya Orihara: Well,no, this isn’t some power suit or anything.


Soraru & Mafumafu Youtube videos with English captions

Lately I’ve been using Youtube’s translation features to sub certain Soramafu vids on their official channels. I always announce when I finish one on Twitter, but I thought it’d be handy to compile them for a Tumblr post just in case anyone hasn’t seen these yet and would be interested in watching them. Enable captions on the YT player and switch to English to see the subs~ Enjoy! :D

Pedals trivia from Watanabe-sensei’s sign event (17 April)

This is a quick translation of some trivia answered by Sensei at today’s event that I’ve seen going around on twitter. There’s probably a lot more I’m missing, so I might add to this post if something else crosses my twitter feed. For now, here we go:


  • If Imaizumi were to go pro, he would go abroad, but which country or team is undecided. Sensei said, “wherever he got his contract”.
  • Teshima has had one-on-one practice with Makishima in the past, and tried desperately to make conversation as they rode, but because Makishima is so bad at carrying a conversation, he only gave answers like, “Huh,” and “Really,” and Teshima was at a loss.
  • Makishima only replies to one of every ten messages Toudou sends him, and none of his letters.
  • Makishima won’t go back to England immediately after this summer’s IH is over, but will stay a short while.

Hakone Gakuen

  • Toudou pierced his ear.
  • Toudou only takes his headband off when he’s going to get in the bath at the end of the day.
  • As a child, Toudou was taught mainly penmanship and traditional Japanese dance.
  • Kuroda is an older brother (he has a younger sister).
  • The new HakoGaku third years are all in different classes.
  • Q: “It feels like Arakita is a lot more relaxed at Yonan.” A: “I think it’s like he was able to let go of something.” (Sensei literally says, “as if he was released from something”, but it’s positive).
  • Toudou is working part-time at an izakaya (Japanese tavern/bar). This trivia is exploding on twitter, but somebody reported that Sensei said “Toudou is working as a home tutor” to somebody else, so it might be something he came up with in that moment.
  • Shinkai Hayato works part-time at a café.
  • Yuuto’s image colors are yellow & black (hornet colors).
  • Yuuto can cook. His specialty is pasta. (This is so cute. When the poster asked Sensei what Yuuto’s best dish was, Sensei replied, “Hold on, I need to do a search inside my head” and thought about it while drawing their request before replying that it’s pasta.)
  • Ashikiba is hard for Sensei to draw, but he likes drawing him.

Kyoto Fushimi

  • Mizuta’s birthday is on January 3rd. (Sensei seemed to come up with it on the spot, according to the poster)


  • The Spare Bike volumes that are planned for the future are, in order: Tadokoro, Kanzaki Tooji, Machimiya, Hiroshima, Fukutomi.
  • Q: “Do you draw races already knowing who is going to win?” A: “Yes, for the most part, I draw the race with that outcome in mind, but in the end, sometimes someone tries very very hard and ends up winning instead.”
When Translating

If, for whatever reason, you want to have things in another language but don’t have access to someone who knows that language, here are some ways to be less likely to get it wrong:

If it’s a word or phrase, looking it up on Wikipedia. If there is a Wikipedia article in English (or your native language) for it, go to the left-hand side of the article and try to find the language you want to translate into. If there is one, go to the page for that language. You’ll want to translate the page to make sure it matches up, but the word on there is probably correct. (Advice from one of my Japanese professors)

If it’s a common phrase or greeting, look up “greetings in x language” or “hello in x language” or whatever you’re looking for in Google. There will be tourism/language blogs that give different versions, usually with some context or nuance, so you can pick what you looking for.

Same with slang/swearing/insults.

For diminutives/pet names, sometimes you can do the same thing. Other times, there may be forum questions on it.

If possible, read about formality in that language. I see this a lot with Japanese, particularly when people use Google translate–they get the formality entirely wrong. It’s not always possible to figure out what level of formality your characters would be using, and different languages deal with this very differently, but you can end up with it reading very wrong if you just use an unadulterated Google Translate answer.

Look up what words, if any, are commonly left out. Google Translate tends to have the long form of any given translation, so you can end up with a lot of extraneous words that people in the language wouldn’t actually use. This is true for pronouns in particular. A lot of different languages have different standards in regards to what pronouns they use or leave out. (I didn’t actually know the pronouns for he or she in Japanese until my second year of learning the language, because we never used them, and I don’t think I’ve used them since.)

If all else fails, use Google Translate. It’s probably correct.
