Here’s the right dialogues from FT Chapter 499

As you all know, a lot of us are pissed off with mangastream’s mistranslations when it comes to Gray’s dialogue when it’s gruvia related. This is not even the first time they did that, so that’s why I’m putting the right dialogues here. Also I want to add in that the translators in mangastream always like to add words when it’s not really necessary -.-

Anyway, left side is the mangastream, while the right side is my own translation. So here’s the cover message:

And I did explain about the meaning of ‘Ju’ and ‘Gu’ in this post. Now here are some Gray’s dialogues:

Also other than serious, he can also mean ‘earnest’ because 真剣 (shinken) means serious/earnest.

Seriously, I don’t know why MS always make Gray’s dialogue a bit far to what it really means in Japanese while they translate Juvia’s dialogues right o.o But anyway, mangastream is just a fan scanlation site so let’s wait for official English scans from crunchyroll or the English Manga release of Fairy Tail.

But I did this post so you guys have an idea what Gray really said. Thanks to @rieriebee for giving me the Japanese transcript and shout out for @chanting-to-u because she also did a post similar to this ^^

160124 ~ BTS 2nd Muster [TRANS]

On Jungkook’s dating simulation video, there is something on the girl’s lips and fans supposed to guess what he’ll do. Out of the given multiple choice, fans choose the number 4 which is “erase it with his lips.” Taehyung was then like "everyone, at that time (the video recording) Jungkook was still a minor keke.”

(Cr.)

I know I’m shouting into the void, here, but I gotta say something. 

It seems like some people don’t seem to realize that there are options beyond blanket-acceptance of everything that a creator does and virulent death threats/pissy fits. It’s okay to disagree with creative choices, it’s okay to dislike certain aspects of a narrative for literally any reason. You can sort of feel uncomfortable with one character or creative choice, or you can feel very uncomfortable with a few things but still be into the overall series, or you can just be done with the whole thing and throw your hands up. Your feelings, your emotions, your opinions are your own and you can do anything that you want with them…

…up unto the point where you begin to interfere with others. Something like a death threat or a piece of hate mail is an inappropriate way to handle your feelings about a series or pretty much anything else. It’s okay if you disagree with the portrayals of certain characters in a series, but please consider keeping it to yourself, or writing about it, untagged, on your personal blog. What should never, never be happening is an attack on the creator of the series, or on other bloggers who don’t share your same opinions. Find another outlet for your negative emotions, but understand that those kinds of reactions aren’t okay. 

Fandom will never be a safe space, but we could sure make it a nicer place by respecting one another and respecting the creator, even when we make not agree with every choice he makes. You can disagree with someone calmly and respectfully, and still recognize that they are a lovely and wonderful person who works very hard and does an incredible amount of good for all of us. We all contain multitudes. 

[Dispatch] “We’re the strongest fandom in space”… 9 years of SuperJunior and ELF

We say that ‘there is no day for the ink on the passport to dry~’ by seeing this, right?

China, Thailand, Japan, Hong Kong…..
They say that there are no countries they’ve not been to.

They say that they run to wherever they are. Who is this with global fandom?

“We’re SuperJunior~” We met SuperJunior’s official fan club, ‘ELF’ on 16th. Members that gathered this day aged in 20’s~30’s. They say that they are fans that went through all sorts of hardships including dogfights. They say they’ve watched only SuperJunior since 2005 until now. How did ‘ELF’ fall into SuperJunior? We will release personalities of each member which only ‘ELF’ knows. The legendary episode which only belongs to the oldest group is a bonus~. We wrote fans’ names in false names for the protection of human rights (?). ◆ Introduction: The day when they fell into SuperJunior This is an official question of ‘★&fan’. How did ‘ELF’ fall into SuperJunior? As like other idol group fans, the answers differed. As like SuperJunior is an original ‘multirole-idol’ the reasons varied.  “Actually, every fandom would have been surprised when SuperJunior debuted. It is because they were totally different from boy groups which SM announced in the meanwhile. SuperJunior acted variously as singer, entertainer, actor, and gagmen…. So how ‘ELF’ fell into them would all vary.” (Park Jung Mul) “She’s right. I like Heechul the most among SuperJunior members. I got interested in him after watching KBS ‘Sharp’ when I was high school senior. I got attracted by him since he was so pretty. I started fan club activities earnestly right after the SAT was over, and I still like them until now.” (Kim Petal) “I fell into him after watching them entertaining. SuperJunior members appeared whenever I turned on the TV. Kang In did the hardest among them. He was unique from other previous idols with his handsome face. I went to a music broadcast after that I got to like him more after seeing him in real.” (Kang In Ah)  “I’m a 4-year-old overseas ‘ELF’. I’m from Hong Kong. I accidentally got to know SuperJunior while I was watching a K-pop program. I knew many of K-pop groups, but their charisma was more intense. I liked both of their song and performance. Maybe Hong Kong fans fell in love with them by seeing images of them on stage.” (Virginia)

◆ Living together: Want to know about SuperJunior more? SuperJunior debuted with 1st regular album ‘Twins’ in 2005. Albums which they released totals 30. They are one of the oldest groups after SHINHWA. ‘ELF’ is also an oldest fan club. Since they lived with SuperJunior together, they knew everything about SuperJunior. First, shall we hear about leader, Leeteuk?

“Leeteuk is like a leader of SuperJunior. He’s a taciturn person compared to other members. He always spoke neutrally among SuperJunior, SM, and fans. But his personality changed after he got discharged from the military service. (Laughs) He tried to do his best to speak and commune with fan more.” (Park Jung Mul)  

“Heechul is always a thankful being to fans. We didn’t know he would act as SuperJunior for a long time like this since he’s a member who has much talent toward acting and entertaining. Also, he was abrasive at the time of the debut… but he’s a member who cares about members the most than anyone.” (Kim Petal)

“Kang In is a member who is the most affectionate towards fans. He once had entertainment program shooting at Paju in winter. I went to see him. He called fans to the car since the weather was so cold. He then turned on the heater. I cannot forget that charge of that time.” (Kang In Ah)

Siwon is born as gentleman. He receives every greeting from fans. He even greets with fans even if there are fans when he comes out of the bathroom. I coincidentally boarded a same plane with him, and I got surprised that he acknowledged me without constraint.” (Kang In Ah)

“Donghae is a member who nags a lot. He gives advices such like, ‘Aren’t you going to marry?’, ‘Live you own lives’, ‘Please study’, and ‘You must study abroad’. Also when we try to give presents, he says, ‘Spend money on your parents’. He’s a member with good personality.” (Kim Petal)

“Shindong has great affection toward SuperJunior. He’s also a member who participate the most whenever there are concerts. He makes cue sheet himself and releases movements on SNS. He always performs the role of counterbalancing fans’ loyalty whenever it is in disorder.” (Kim Petal)

“Eunhyuk is a member who’s not like an entertainer within SuperJunior. He doesn’t bluff. He doesn’t have much difference between image in TV and in reality. He’s bright and vivid. He’s a friend which makes others feel happy when seeing him. He’s a happy virus among SuperJunior members.” (Park Jung Mul)

“Yesung is a member who constantly cares himself. He’s a type of guy who swells up although he eats little. So he always takes care of his visual appearance. Also he’s a devoted son. He launched a café for his parents. And he looks good when he cares his younger sibling so much.” (Kang In Ah)

“Sungmin is even good at caring overseas fans. Actually, there are many overseas fans that remain in Korea. Also, there are fans that wear hijabs (cloth which Indian or Islamic follower wears on their head) on them. Sungmin is a member who approaches overseas fans first by greeting.” (Virginia)

 “Ryeowook was the shyest guy among SuperJunior members. He’s the most boring member among fans. (lol) But I got to know him that he takes care of fans greatly. He’s a member who gives small charge. He has improved in speaking more.” (Kim Petal)

“Kyuhyun appears in MBC ‘Golden Fishery Radio Star’ as little Kim Gu Ra. His real image is opposite from it. He’s like an unchanging friend. He doesn’t show bored expression at any situation. He tries his best to laugh a lot. He’s a genuine in one word.” (Kang In Ah)

◆ Charm: Idols that don’t pretend innocence  SuperJunior’s fandom is really enormous. They show off global fandom from Asia, US, Europe and until South America. What would be the secret of SuperJunior to possess explosive fandom? Fans all say it’s due to their fan service.  

Makeup show of SuperJunior was not over. Every member appeared at the airport entry by wearing hero costumes after finishing South America tour on April, 30th in last year. Their skill was developed. Hair-wigs, beards, and even face printing….. reporters at the airport couldn’t also stop from bursting into laughter.

This was the day which their makeup show reached the peak. SuperJunior performed makeup show again at the airport by celebrating their 8th debut anniversary on November, 6th. They were like experts. They showed off 100% synchronization. Especially, the Matilda makeup which Eunhyuk showed is left as a ‘lifetime memory’.

◆ Reward: The best heated contest of giving tributes in space ‘ELF’s mind for SuperJunior was also enormous. Their scale of giving tributes was enormous. Overseas fans’ large-scale tributes are also making big headlines among ‘ELF’. It is said that there are many happenings that touched SuperJunior which cannot be bought with money.

It was on May 5th, 2010. This is at the Galleria Department Store placed in Gangnam-gu, Seoul. Can you see the Chinese characters and ‘SJ’ on the electric display? Taiwanese fans held the event in order to celebrate the release of SuperJunior’s 4th album. Donghae left a proof-shot himself at the event which was held for about 8 minutes.

Korean ‘ELF’s tributes are unique. The most famous tribute was at the time of accident of Haiti earthquake. ‘ELF’ gathered donation by making a donation bankbook and delivered the donation to the Korean National Red Cross. They also donate blood donor card, Ramen, and handwritten letters to The Beautiful Foundation every year.

Wait a moment here, this is how ‘ELF’ targets ‘SuperJunior’. “SuperJunior has performed longer in overseas than in Korea. Since they hold concerts worldwide, we follow them abroad a lot. We could speak with foreign friends if we speak with real names of members when they shout out ‘oppa’.” (Park Jung Mul)

◆ Quotation: Minute shocking statement  SuperJunior goes by the nickname of ‘humorous idol’ and ‘witty idol’. There is a member who is famous for speaking fluently than any other idols. According to ‘ELF’, people burst into laughter from anywhere at any time due to them. We release SuperJunior’s minute words that fans picked among them!

① “It so exists since Shindong exists”  SuperJunior lives and dies at loyalty. They showed unique performance on the way to KBS ‘Music Bank’ on 12th. They wore group T-shirts. On the T-shirt there was a phrase written, “It so exists since Shindong exists”. It was a customized present for Shindong who had to join the army.

② "Come back after cheating on us” There’s this deep friendship between SuperJunior and ‘ELF’. Since they have lived together for 9 years, there is trust among them. So is it due to that, SuperJunior gives cool jokes like, “Come back after cheating on us for a while”, “Please like BEAST”, and “You’ll comeback anyway”.

③ “Beware of goose bumps~” Now, there’s no need to say long. Sweet comments that were proposed to only ‘ELF’ are released. Everyone of ‘STARCAST’! Please appreciate them by holding both of your hands tight! “ELFs waving balloons looked pretty” Heechul “ELFs are elves so they are pretty in reality too” Yesung “Let’s keep on going with this pretty mind” Eunhyuk “If there’s no ELF, there is no SuperJunior and if there’s no SuperJunior, then there’s no ELF” Shindong “Please always be healthy and happy” Siwon

Meaning: What is SuperJunior to us?  Now, this is the last question of SuperJunior’s '★&fan’. What is SuperJunior to ELF? “They are like ‘Blue marble game’. We moved busily at the dice (album) they threw. Please become everyone’s Blue marble, not just only ours.” (Kang In Ah)
“They are ‘forever friends’ to me. Since we became so familiar with each other, we have more than a singer and fan relationship like best friends that understand each other even by not saying anything. Let’s keep our friendship forever~!” (Park Jung Mul)
“I’m saying truly that SuperJunior is ‘a part of my life’. I’ve been through happy and sad happenings for 9 years. I cannot compare those memories I shared with SuperJunior to any other thing.” (Kim Petal)
