I got the second Persona 5 comic anthology book and there are some pretty funny comic strips so I wanted to translate a few (emphasis on few) of my favorites. Here are a couple to start!

(I cut up the comic strips for better readability and I had to use photos for my raws since I don’t have a scanner so I’m sorry they’re pretty ugly lmao.)

Suzuki Tatsuhisa sings OLDCODEX’s Aching Horns at High Speed Free! Event

The most angelic moment in the history of Free! events - Tatsun sings in middle school Makoto’s voice

Background: Toshi was tasked to sing first, which he did well. Tatsun teased him to do one more song after the first one (even if this wasn’t on the script), and Toshi still complied. Now Toshi took his chance to get revenge as he teased Tatsun to sing on the spot. Bugged by the audience and the cast, Tatsun reluctantly gives in.


My attempt on subtitling.

Full event report here. Full video will not be uploaded.

“If efforts never lied, the one who practices the most would win time after time. But, as of course, no matter how hard a person works, if they can’t win, they can’t win. And conversely, much younger athletes may overtake them forcefully. Therefore, efforts do lie. But that doesn’t mean efforts are in vain. It is precisely because efforts lie that we are prompted to think about how to work hard in a different way, and find the correct direction in which to expend our efforts.” – Yuzuru Hanyu

Free! -Timeless Medley-

The winner of the Second Annual Kyoto Animation Awards honorable mention award, “High Speed” served as the foundation for the TV anime series “Free!”

It was the story of young boys enthusiasm and delicate feelings towards swimming, but it is now being reconstructed into two movies, and will appear on screen along with new scenes added in!

Having once stood at a standstill, Haruka spends an irreplaceable time with his friends Makoto, Nagisa, and Rei in Free! -Timeless Medley- Bonds.

Rin who has decided to keep swimming to pursue his dream, remembers the past with Sousuke in Free! -Timeless Medley- Promise.

and finally, there will be a story where Haruka and the rest will set off towards the future. In the movie Free! -Take Your Marks- they’ll move towards a brand new starting block!

Nanase Haruka, a young boy with a special relationship with water, quit swimming because of a certain circumstance.

Haruka wanted to be free and not tied down to anything, but Makoto was with him no matter what, and he reunited with his underclassman Nagisa at Iwatobi High School, and then he met Rei who reminded him of the importance of friends, and so he begins swimming again.

Then comes his final summer of high school where he wants spend it with the best of friends. Even though Haruka says he wants to swim for his friends in the moment, he couldn’t concentrate to do it.

Haruka couldn’t see himself in a future after this and was lost. This puts him at odds with Makoto and the rest who are worried about him.

This is the story of Haruka being able to form strong ‘bonds’ with his irreplaceable friends, leading him to see a new sight standing on a new starting block.

Matsuoka Rin is a young boy who has decided to pursue his dead father’s dream of swimming competitively on the world stage. Rin, who holds special feelings towards the medley relay that his father also swam in, has a fight with his best friend Sousuke over their difference in opinion after swimming together in a relay. In the end, Rin decides to go find new teammates in order to swim in the best medley relay.

Determined to go to an even higher place Rin heads off for Australia. There he learns the true level of swimming on the world stage, and suffers a bitter setback. After returning home, in order to obtain his true strength at Samezuka Academy, he needs a team.

In the spring of his third year of high school, he is suddenly reunited with Sousuke. Rin is happy to be able to swim on the same team as him again, but Sousuke has a reason he’s decided to spend his final year of high school at Samezuka Academy that he won’t tell anyone…

Rin is swimming straight forward to pursue his dream, but this is the story of him facing his 'promise’ to his one and only best friend.

These two snippets from the YELL FOR Free!ES & HS! pamphlet had me laughing out loud, so naturally I have to share! Thank you @aliasanonyme for getting this for me! <3

IWATOBI INTERVIEW

Makoto: The training camps were really something, both last year’s and this years.

Haruka: And we had a joint training camp with Samezuka this year, so they really kicked it up a notch.

Rei: I wouldn’t describe it as “really something”, it’s more like…

Makoto: It was a disaster… an all-boys school can get pretty wild.

Nagisa: But wasn’t it like super fun!? The King’s game plus pillow fight tournament!

Rei: I didn’t expect it to last through the night. We were told off by Amakata-sensei the next day, who said “staying up late is detrimental to beauty!”

Nagisa: It was really funny~! Especially Sou-chan’s order when he was King~!

Haruka+Makoto: Nagisa!!

Nagisa: Awwww c'mon, it’s no big deal? You guys and Rin-chan looked really cute in the photos, y'know~?

Makoto: Don’t even think about showing them to anyone else!


SAMEZUKA INTERVIEW

Ai: In which case, speaking of traditions, the cultural festival’s…

Rin: Hey! Sto-, stop right there, Ai…!

Momo: Yeah, Ai-senpai! For next month’s cultural festival, I’m totally against the swimming club’s tradition of holding a Maid Cafe from Hell!! I don’t wanna wear a maid uniform-!! I wanna be a butler like the third years-!!

Ai: What are you talking about, Momo-kun? Look at me, it’ll be my second time dressing like that. Besides, Those maid uniforms were designed and redesigned by all our senpais from years past, they are the gems of their labor soaked in their sweat and tears…!

Momo: That makes it even worse-!

Sousuke: So what you mean is, Rin also wore the maid uniform when he was in second year.

Nitori: Oh, would you like to see? Rin-senpai was really amazing last year…!

Rin: Don’t you dare! Anyaway, why would you have those pictures? I’m so sure I’ve deleted all the data…!

Ai: Hehehe, amateur mistake, Rin-senpai. I took some pictures with a film camera as well.

Rin: Film…!? Shit, why didn’t I think of it…

Sousuke: Ai, develop one of those pictures for me,  it sounds like fun.

Nitori: Absolutely, it’d be my pleasure!

Rin: You guys~~~!

Free! Novelize Chapter 6: It’s Meaningless Without You

I cannot impart to you the miracle that happened for me to get this to you. It’s actually been ready for a couple weeks, but I haven’t had the time to type it up. SO before we begin, a couple notes:

-I apologize for the blatant irreverence for verb tense; it switches from present to past and back again. So I tried to leave it as similar as possible so it can drive all of you crazy too I apologize for that in advance.

-Also again with the spacing, practically everything has its own paragraph in the book.

-‘Dice Talk’ is literally what the phonetic vocabulary word is for the dice game in the chapter.

-There are a couple lines it is a bit hard to tell who is talking without seeing their speech pattern, so I added the first letter of their name in a bracket after the line just as an aid.

-And finally, the Japanese language frequently doesn’t believe in periods, causing a lot of run on sentences. I adjusted accordingly, but if anything seems overly long, that’s why.

Now then:

Chapter 6: It’s Meaningless Without You

~Haru’s Point of View~

It’s meaningless without you.

Keep reading

The song Håper du har plass has been played 3 times in this episode (4x8)

First in Savner dere (Miss you), then in Unnskyld (Sorry) and now finally in Håper du har plass (Hope you have room).


In Savner dere Sana is seeing photos of her friends and missing them. The music is sad and only two lines are sung:


Det er ingenting som fenger lenger

Eller føles ut som en ekte følelse


Nothing’s interesting anymore

Or feels like a real feeling


Once again, this is a sad scene. Sana feels like she is no longer a part of the group and seeing these photos is nostalgia. It’s not her life anymore


In Unnskyld we see Sana being distanced from the group. In this clip you cannot hear the lyrics what so ever and the music is really emotional.


In Håper du har plass however you finally get to hear the chorus. This is the lyrics:


Jeg håper du har plass, jeg håper du har plass

Jeg kommer helt alene og ikke med noe lass

Du kan si når jeg må skjerpe meg og sette meg på plass hvis du finner et vindu til meg

Oh, fang meg når jeg faller eller mister meg selv og siste flammen eller gnisten

Jeg skal la deg gråte ferdig for et liv på min bekostning hvis du finner et vindu til meg


I hope you have room, I hope you have room

I come completely alone and without any load

You can tell me when I need to straighten up and put me in place if you find me a window

Oh, catch me when I fall or lose myself and the last flame or spark

I will let you finish crying for a lifetime at my expense if you find me a window


Hideen in this sad song is actually a beautiful message about having your friends’ back and being there for them.


The song you first thought would be sad turned out to be an uplifting song. Julie only shows us this when the group is actually reunited.


Conclusion: Julie is a genius

Here are some letters matched up with Dammek’s writing!!! His penmanship is pretty shitty. If any one else can find some other legible letters to pull, feel free to add on!

[TRANS] non-no Magazine 2017 Aug Issue - BTS Jin

4 QS WITH BTS

Q1: What’s your hobby or something you’re into recently, how do you spend your holiday?

A1: Jungkook decided to learn drums in his free time during the world tour so I started learning guitar too. But he couldn’t bring the drum set along so eventually only I brought the guitar and continued to practice. (laughs) I’m playing our songs like ‘Butterfly’ and ‘Spring Day’. I want to show it on the stage one day.

Q2: Tell us your fashion style or preference!

A2: I like neat and simple fashion. When I go to places where I’ll be seen by many people, I wear clothes I got as gifts from others as much as I can. Because if I were them, I would be happy seeing people I cherish wearing clothes I gave them too.

Q3: Favorite perfume?

A3: I’m using a perfume with soft sweet smell. It feels like the soft texture of cotton candy. It doesn’t mean the smell of cotton candy. (laughs)

Q4: Favorite work among Japanese movies, dramas, mangas?

A4: I like Japanese animes so I used to watch ‘One Piece’ and ‘Bleach’ every week when I was a trainee. Recently I’m into a high school volleyball manga called ‘Haikyuu!!’ so I often read it.

THIS IS ME

[Bright]
[Shining face]
[“Let’s live freely and happily”]

If I were to describe myself with one word, it would be “bright”. I feel happy from small things like when I make someone laugh with my words, or when someone makes me laugh. My charming point is my “shining handsome face”! (laughs) It feels embarrassing saying from my own mouth but I think it’s quite symmetrical. (laughs) And “Let’s live freely and happily” is my motto. It’s something I always engrave in my heart and tell myself whenever something’s not going well and I get anxious.

THIS IS HIM: JIN is..

from RAP MONSTER

“The members’ hyung who went to a cafe together with me before debut, talked with me for a long time and gave me advice. He keeps fooling around with dad jokes recently, but Jin-hyung’s really cool when he’s serious! (laughs)

from JIMIN

“We spend a lot of time together playing games. I still remember we bought each other’s game console about 1 hour before we headed to Japan and played in our free time even after arriving. His skill is… one level above me? (laughs)

Sam Winchester Graphic Challenge | semirahrose vs. hallowedbecastiel 
           ↳ Prompt: Dualities | O r d e r  /  C h a o s 

When I talk about Matsuoka Rin with someone else, the first thing that springs to my mind is his smiling face.
His dazzling smile from when he said “I’ll show you a sight you’ve never seen before.” Even now I still think about it at times. If only at that time… If I hadn’t run into Rin at that railroad crossing during that that first year of middle school winter break. If only I had hurried and crossed when the crossing signal at the light before was flashing. Or stopped at a convenience store and read a magazine. No, or better yet, if I hadn’t thought to go out at all that day. I should have stayed in my room and read a book. Then I wouldn’t have run into Rin, so then I wouldn’t have won and hurt him, and then I wouldn’t have parted from my new middle school friends, and I probably wouldn’t have made the choice to stop swimming either.
Or maybe…
It’s possible that, that day, it was an unavoidable fate that I run into Rin.
It might have been fated that no matter what stops I made, or what detours I took, or even if I never left my house, that we would have been pulled by some invisible force, and in the end we would have met somewhere else besides that railroad crossing…


That Matsuoka Rin has returned.
Holding the trophy we buried 4 years ago, that Makoto, Nagisa, and I had snuck into Iwatobi SC in order to dig up. Matsuoka Rin was there. I believed we would meet again ever since I saw the phrases written on the wall under the sakura tree yesterday at Iwatobi Elementary, but I never imagined it would happen so fast.
If our meeting during the first year of middle school was fate, then our second meeting in the run down Iwatobi SC was also fate. The same Iwatobi SC as his breakdown. Iwatobi SC that is now rundown in the middle of the night. We’re slaves to our fate, bound and shackled to it.
The Matsuoka Rin that returned from Australia wasn’t the Rin from Elementary school who I swam in a medley relay with, nor the Rin who I raced against during the winter break middle school. His whole body was shrouded in a ferocious aura, he seemed like a completely different person from back then.
It would be a lie to say I didn’t have a hunch this would happen. It’s because I felt something that I wore my swimsuit under my clothes. Even though there was no reason for the rundown SC’s pool to be filled with water, and a race against him would have to wait.
But Rin definitely said “Let’s race, Haru.”
It wasn’t the Rin who lost to me and said “I’ll quit swimming” while crying. Nor the one who smiled and said “Let’s swim in a medley relay together!” It wasn’t either of those Rins, and yet all I felt was a little relieved.

Director and Producer interview for Free-Timeless Medley-

In 2013 Free aired on TV
In 2014 Free! Eternal Summer aired on TV
and then in 2015 the movie High Speed! -Free! Starting Days- opened in theaters.

In order to tie these three works together, we are making reconstruction films to put them in chronological order.
The movie ‘Free!-Timeless Medley- Bonds’ will be from the Iwatobi members perspective and
The movie ‘Free!-Timeless Medley- Promise’ will be from the Samezuka member’s perspective. Then, the movie Free!-Take Your Marks- is them proceeding onto the next stage all together.

To show the sparkle of their youth, show their irreplaceable time with friends, and to show them taking off straight from the past to the future, the purpose of this project is tie everything together through these 3 works.
Please watch as they take off from the Iwatobi City stage, to the stage known as the world.

Producer Hata Shinichiro

The Free! series started being aired four years ago. I have been involved with this series since then and ran through their youthful days together. Now, when I think back on it, they are still brightly sparkling irreplaceable memories. We are to remake that “Free!” now, in 2017.

Why do we need Free! now?

Why is this work important today?

Recently there have been a lot of incidents that have made it hard to see the future. We live in a world where you don’t know what to believe in. And in this world, there are young boys and girls who don’t know their own feelings and don’t have self-confidence.

I want to show those boys and girls Haruka and Rin —who face the things they like, believe in, and think are important, and then they work as hard as they can, growing every day. Who, even when they run into troubles, still continue forward with strong feelings— and I want them to feel something. I want them to find what they live for, and what they find important, and maybe just gain some aspirations and self-confidence. I want everyone who sees it to be moved at least a little bit.

It is with that in mind that we are literally “rebooting” this Free! series.

We the creators have grown with them, and they have been running through our minds. I hope that their dreams, growth, and their beautiful bodies come rushing out of the screen in order to cheer people up.

What lies in the future, what’s waiting? Please wait for the complete picture. I’m sure you’ll find the answer.
