NDRV3 Demo Rough Translations – Introduction

My Japanese is not very good, but I will be attempting to translate the NDRV3 demo. Please take my translations with a grain of salt and note they may be incorrect at times. Do not use my translations for subtitling without permission.

(The game begins by telling you can start by exploring the school or starting from the class trial. It is strongly recommended you play from the beginning. It gives you two options: the top is “start from the beginning” and the bottom is “start from the class trial”.)

Kaede: (As expected… I should start by introducing myself.)
Kaede: (My name is, Kaede Akamatsu.)
Kaede: (It’s not as though the cause was said to be my fiery passions as red hot as maple leaves [kaede], although…)
Kaede: (This name was supposedly really popular.)
Kaede: (… huh? Speaking of which, who was I talking to?)
Kaede: (If I’m not mistaken, I was supposed to have been on the path I always took to school but…)
Kaede: (What the…? I’m… falling into a pitch black sleep.)
Kaede: ……
Kaede: ……….
Kaede: …………..
Kaede: … nn?

(Kaede wakes up at a desk in a classroom.)

Kaede: ………..
Kaede: H…uh…?
Kaede: Where is this…? A… classroom?
Kaede: (Yes, this was a classroom. But… it was a classroom that I hadn’t remembered seeing at all.)
Kaede: I… why was I sleeping in a place like this?
???: … you woke up? Good morning, Akamatsu-san.
Kaede: Eh? Who? Why do you know my name?
Kaede: You… have we met before? Although I don’t remember seeing you…
???: Ah, sorry if I surprised you. First I’ll give a simple introduction of myself.
Makoto: My name is Makoto Naegi. I’m the SHSL Lucky Student.

(Whoosh, introduction panel.)

Kaede: SHSL… Lucky Student?
Makoto: I’m a student at this academy.
Makoto: Every year here, they randomly select one person from high school students all over the country…
Makoto: And that student is allowed to enter the academy as the “SHSL Lucky Student”.
Kaede: They only choose one person out of all the high school students in the country?! That’s amazing! You really are fortunate!
Kaede: (Huh… so there are also these types of SHSL’s. I didn’t know.)
Makoto: For the time being here… I’ll be serving as your upperclassman [senpai], I guess.
Makoto: It’s nice to meet you formally, “SHSL Pianist” Akamatsu-san.
Kaede: Eh? U-Upperclassman?!
Kaede: No… you are our upperclassman, aren’t you? I’m sorry, I’m sure…
Makoto: Don’t worry about it. It’s also fine if you don’t use honorifics.
Kaede: Oh, speaking of which… I haven’t introduced myself yet…
Kaede: How did you know I was the SHSL Pianist?

(Whoosh, Kaede’s introduction panel.)

Makoto: Ah… information on the new students was on some documents, so it’s just because I looked at those before coming here.
Kaede: N-New students?
Kaede: But… I was already going to school a long time ago…
Kaede: Hey, Naegi-san… what is all this? This academy… what in the world’s going on with it?
Makoto: In order to explain that… First, why don’t you try investigating your desk for me?
Kaede: (… investigating?)

(The game gives you an explanation on the controls used to look around the room and sets you loose to investigate the classroom. Take advantage of the hand shooting mechanic to send furniture flying all over the room.)


Kaede: (The outside of the windows are wrapped in wire…? Besides that… isn’t this barbed wire?)
Kaede: (The windows are covered in barbed wire… what’s the meaning of this?)


Kaede: (It’s a locker with nothing unusual about it…)
Kaede: (It’s weird to anticipate that there would be something surprising about it…)


Kaede: (Could this be called a monitor, I wonder? Although it isn’t showing anything right now…)
Kaede: (I have a feeling that their atmosphere doesn’t make them seem as though they were originally left behind in the academy…)


Kaede: (I wonder if this is a blackboard?)
Kaede: (This is a school after all, so having one isn’t weird, but…)
Kaede: (Was it made into an LCD display? It’s a modified blackboard, it looks like.)


[Kaede asks him again what’s going on with the academy. He just repeats the last few lines telling you to investigate the desk.]


Kaede: (The desk I was lying on until now… beneath it, there were clearly marks left on it.)
Kaede: (I guess no one cleaned it afterwards. And, on top of the desk was…)
Kaede: … a letter?

Kaede: “Please come to the gymnasium. If you do not come to the gymnasium for me, you will not be able to progress.”
Kaede: “But please be careful. The group in this place are loitering around the area.”
Kaede: “If you address them and listen to their introductions, you might find yourself in a bind.”
Kaede: “It’s a progression where you might see something! Déjà vu! It isn’t a scenario where you should say something.” [?]
Kaede: “In any case, please come to the gymnasium. Seriously, please.”

Kaede: What is this… it’s asking me?

Kaede: (I could only think of it as a joke, but…)
Kaede: (I wonder what’s in the gym. Besides, what did it mean by the group in this place?)
Kaede: (The path it spoke of… I tried searching the desk again for it, but… things had become unnecessarily chaotic.)

Kaede: Hey, Naegi-san… are there others in this academy aside from us?
Makoto: Yeah, you aren’t the only new student. I think everyone is somewhere in this academy.
Makoto: It’s a precious opportunity, so before you go to the gym you should probably walk around and greet everyone.
Makoto: Of course, going to the gym right away would also be fine… I’ll leave it to you, Akamatsu-san.
Kaede: A-Alright… I got it.

Kaede: (Is that what I should say… saying I’m a new student and all – what’s really going on here?)
Kaede: (Ah, why did this type of thing happen? Just what is this academy?)

(The game then tells you how to leave the room.)

Starting from here, if there’s enough of a desire for it, I’ll be moving to each of the character introductions. I’ll likely publish them in sets of two or three, depending on where they are in the academy.

Ah, and if I do enough of the others, I’ll make a masterlist post. 

Thank you for reading.


For those that were asking about yokai reference books / handbooks yesterday, these are two that I’d recommend. The top one is Yokai Attack!: The Japanese Monster Survival Guide and the second is Matthew Meyer’s The Night Parade of One Hundred Demons: A Field Guide to Japanese Yokai.

The second one is my favourite of the two, but it’s a little more expensive at $40 instead of $15. You can get it on kindle for around $4 though which is what I own currently.

winchester67x  asked:

I missed out on reading some really good books though out high school. So I was wondering what are some book that everyone should read at least once? You know the MUST HAVE read books

I missed out on some of those in high school, too… and I haven’t caught up with all of them in the (many) years since high school. Yesterday I mentioned my Top 10 recommended books, but I wouldn’t say all of those are MUST READ books. (I mean, I think they are, but it would be a little short-sighted to categorize all my favorite books as “must reads.”) I think books everyone should read are those that are widely discussed and can help you connect with other readers; books that are consistently referred to in other books. So I’ll give you a list of 10 I think are must reads, but I really hope my followers will chime in and add to this list. 

In no particular order (off the top of my head): 

The Great Gatsby - F. Scott Fitzgerald
Jane Eyre - Charlotte Brontë
Don Quixote - Miguel de Cervantes
Hamlet - William Shakespeare
Their Eyes Were Watching God - Zora Neale Hurston
To Kill a Mockingbird - Harper Lee
Anna Karenina - Leo Tolstoy
Of Mice and Men - John Steinbeck
The God of Small Things - Arundhati Roy
1984 - George Orwell

Ugh, so hard to keep this list at 10. Help me out here, followers! 

My Drama Year!

It had been some time since I had wifi, so I ventured to the library to download K-Dramas for entertainment purposes. This is My Year in K-Dramas. The last two are recent and I have watched them with wifi because I am in a better place. Yay!!

     1. Oh My Venus

      This drama started out being really sad to me, then it became rather weird, but then I thought it was cute. It is one of those dramas that I would definitely say I enjoyed. Without wifi and cable, it was also hard to watch a second or third time. By the third time, I just went through my favorite episodes/moments. Would still recommend! 4.5 STARS!


           2. Cheese in the Trap 

                Now this one I was actually kind of bored with until about the fifth episode. Sorry, but true. I had a hard time understanding why it was popular. Of course, though, I did enjoy watching it after getting into it. After some time, it had me hooked and trying to figure things out as it went and the male lead had me all confused and stuff! Kekeke Would I recommend? Yes. 4 STARS!

            3. Liar Game

                This one I stumbled upon by chance. I looked it up on Google and decided the synopsis made the show seem very intriguing. So I downloaded it and enjoyed every second of this mystery thriller!! From beginning to end I was hooked, like a fish on a line!! I could not get enough of the show and even checked to see if there was another season. I still need another one. TOTALLY DAEBAK!!! 5 STARS


            4. Descendants of the Sun

                 THIS ONE!! Yes, this one. This drama I kept in my files for a long time, even after I moved TWICE(!!!!). I love this drama from beginning to end and may have watched it about ten times… Without skipping episodes. I love it so much, I had the poster as my phone’s background and had ringtones. I am not ashamed!! Song-Song couple is love, dude!! This one breaks the record. WAY PAST 5 STARS!!!


             5. W: Two Worlds

                  Now tell me why Lee Jong Suk said he wants to play a more masculine type of character when he did such a cool, manly job playing as his character Kang Chul?! He is the definition of perfection and I love him so much. I started feeling rather odd when I wanted him to catch me in a bathroom. Like, I volunteer to be scared like that!! All semi-joking aside, the drama is freaking awesome and the story line was well thought out. I would like to meet the writer and get some tips. 5 STARS!!!

             6. Goblin

                 So many favorite scenes, so much bromance. Is it bad of me to say I loved this drama from beginning to end, too? I hope not. Although, for some reason, I wasn’t too into the beginning scene of the first episode. I shrug when I think about it because I have no idea why I’m not pleased with it. Gong Yoo did amazing acting out the battle and the movements were great and everything, but eh. ANYWAY! This drama had me swooning over anything and everything and even made me feel lonely af. I super love love it, though and totally watched it again and again!! Another one that broke the scale!!


            7. Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo

                 I just recently finished this one, so fresh out of the mind reaction. Here goes. NAM JOO HYUK, STOP STEALING MY HEART!!!!!! The story was great and the acting was even greater!! I love that it’s not the typical thin boy loves thin girl. Noooope, nope, nope. I am so in love with the story, I may go watch it again. With each episode, I had to make sure I was breathing because Nam Joo Hyuk kept me from breathing correctly. The love scenes were so cute and well thought out and that’s what really had me feeling like a high school teenager again. Oh, those feelings of blissful love. Sigh. I would definitely recommend this drama that peoples ears would fall off. I’m so in love with it. ANOTHER SCALE BREAKER!!!!!

    Thank you so much for reading!! (If you did) I know it was super long and not well typed, but I was afraid of mentioning any spoilers. Please keep in mind that I really did enjoy each and every one of these dramas. No harm, no foul.

    Got a drama you want to recommend I watch and review? Leave me a comment/message! Thank you!! Heartu!

    livinginthelopsidedworld  asked:

    hello! i got into Wicked + The Divine This Month and i already read everything, could you point me out the coolest blogs about the comic?

    Oh hey people ! Say hello to our new fellow hostage victim fan ! Welcome !

    So here’s a bunch of recommendations off the top of my head :

    - @twatd publishes nice analysis pieces and conversations every other month. @myfirstsearchengine and @enigmatic-wankery are fandom veterans and post a lot of different things.

    - If you’re more into the lulz and brain-twisting theories @otto-von-stirlitz, @zucchiniegg and @extraknees are our resident powerpuff cuties.

    - @wicdivstyleblog is the official inspiration blog, run by Mckelvie if i’m not mistaken. You can of course follow Mckelvie himself even though he doesn’t post much. @wicdivcosplay is a fan-run central for the cosplays.

    - and of course since i’m biased you can find older material (since she’s on semi-hiatus) on my friend’s blog @damnationisdelightful. Also check reactions + questionable fancomics at my loveable stalker @thewickedandthehufflepuff

    - oh and you might wanna check out that weird account that pops up in the fandom from time to time. We don’t really know what it wants from us but it might be friendly so we’re keeping an eye on it just in case. It’s called @kierongillen. Approach with caution.

    Can you recommend me any other dark themed yaoi's? Other the warehouse

    • Acid Town (it’s actually really sad)

    • Bastard (lmao Killing Stalking pales to this - not Yaoi though but a really good manhwa)

    • Caste Heaven (to me it’s kind of dark, like what the fuck man)

    • Choco Strawberry Vanilla (psychological!)

    • Let Dai ( :/ )

    That’s all the mangas I can give you on the top of my head that I thought was dark. I’m looking for dark webtoons right now c:

    anonymous asked:

    Do you guys have any gay book recommendations for a single lesbian book nerd?

    hey there! sorry this took a while— it got lost in the drafts.

    off the top of my head i would say dare me by megan abbott was really interesting— it’s dark and has some death (not of the girls though!) and it’s about queer cheerleader best friends.

    i’ve heard fingersmith by sarah waters is really good! (i believe it may be an adult book tho so i wouldn’t read it unless you’re emotionally mature enough b/c i think there’s some sex and violence and dark stuff) but it’s the book that the handmaiden was based off of! sarah waters in general has a lot of good lesbian books.

    ash by malinda lo is a retelling of cinderella but with a lesbian twist! malinda lo has a lot of books featuring sapphic characters and women of color; she’s one of my favorite authors <3

    beauty queens by libba bray is about a bunch of beauty pageant contestants that get stranded on an island. it’s not a romance but it features many women on the lgbt spectrum (including a trans girl!) and it’s super funny and diverse and i liked it a lot! 

    that’s all i can think of rn but i have a lot of posts about diverse books on my personal blog if you wanna check out the tag here!

    darlingqueer  asked:

    anonymous asked:

    Do you have a post with all your fics organized in it?

    Yes! Though it isn’t updated. I would recommend going to my fic page on the sidebar located HERE. There are still a handful of fics missing from that page, but you can find those ones pretty much at the top of my ‘myfic’ tag HERE. Have fun! I’ll be posting an updated master list shortly before ACOWAR comes out. :)

    anonymous asked:

    Fic authors self rec! When you get this, reply with your favorite five fics that you've written, then pass on to at least five other writers (◠‿◠✿)

    Yes good, pls give me the chance to tell you all about my fave fics (even though they might not be anyone else’s faves). <3

    1)  And You Understand Now Why They Lost Their Minds and Fought the Wars

    My Sense8 AU. I have written a lot since then but I haven’t managed to top that (at least in my head). In any case, it’s my sincere recommendation.


    Because you know how much I love soulmates AU and this is basically a soulmate AU with multiple people because platonic friendships are my fave, ok? (Bellarke totally bang, tho)

    2)  Kept Going, Kept Rolling with Nowhere to Go

    Spain, sangria, angst & Bellarke. Need I say more?

    3)  What We Do to Each Other

    “ A Bellarke AU in which Bellamy and Clarke are childhood best friends, separated by life and trying to relearn each other again.”


    4)  Like Maybe You Are Magic

    I invented a new genre with this one and I’m really a huge sucker for urban fantasy.

    “A Bellarke urban fantasy social activism AU.”

    See what I mean? And no, Bellamy isn’t a literal dragon ffs. 

    5)  Magnetized

    A soulmate AU with compasses! Also childhood best friends to lovers! Feels! (my personal fave out of all my soulmate fics)

    Thanks for this opportunity to remind me of how much I liked writing these! Have an amazing day! <3

    azraphele  asked:

    Hey are there any Samifer blogs you could recommend?

    Hmmm… well, I’ll give you a few off the top of my head that I follow and love, though none are really solely samifer, but their content is still aces: 


    This is just a quick list of the little Legion we have, fighting the good fight, and all that - I’m sure I’m missing a ton of really fantastic blogs, so, hey sinners, feel free to add! I hope you find some of what you’re looking for. 😈

    anonymous asked:

    I think part of my... idk... issue with Cassandra is that she seems to think she knows Rapunzel for years and that Eugene hasn't done shit for her. When in reality, she's known Rapunzel for about the same amount of time as him. And on top of that, he's literally already died for her so. I want to like Cassandra but the pilot did her no favors.

    I think the pilot did do the plot of the series favors, though, in that it clearly highlighted that we’re not starting the show with a bunch of perfect people who have nothing to learn and don’t need to change or grow.

    My recommendation is that you don’t write her off just yet. Let her become who she’s going to be instead of who she’s starting as. We don’t actually know much about her, beyond her being the Captain’s daughter, Rapunzel’s friend, and a fan of weapons. We don’t even know anything about her relationship with Owl, except that she apparently didn’t feel the need to name him.

    Since the episode titled “Cassandra v. Eugene” is coming up on April 21st, maybe we’ll get a much better insight into her character.

    anonymous asked:

    Hi Millie! This is weird but you seemed like the person to ask. Do you have any book/movie recommendations featuring female protagonists and murder/death? Mostly anything subtle, like "Heavenly Creatures," "The Virgin Suicides," or "Picnic at Hanging Rock." I'd really appreciate any recommendations you have! <3 (And keep being just a darling human being as well.)

    ohh gosh uummm off the top of my head it seems like u might enjoy the silenced, cracks, do not deliver us from evil (finally watched this and really loved), the book we have always lived in the castle, and the thirteenth tale book or film (the book is 1000x better though) ♡ hope u can find something good!!!
