Tales of Zestiria Fan-TL Blogging: Shepherds and Angels and Others

In case any of this gets out of context, I feel I should be clear for some reason that I’m not a Tales translator and this has nothing to do with the (god allowing) English release of Tales of Zestiria. I’ve just been translating promo material on my own time because I am hopeless. The only reason these words are on the internet is because I wanted to write them down and put them somewhere.

Let’s Bring a Storm to Let’s Play! Super Robot Wars Z3

Some joker‘s got a Z3 LP going on already. I have no idea how popular or well-referenced it is, but it’s pretty bad. Well, a ridiculous amount of the dialogue is skipped (to an even greater extent than my summaries of Z2), but on the flip side, the guy translates a few lines, and they’re atrocious.

1360529739340So if this is right, Fish Girl’s real name is Matsuri Hyou. Current speculations involve “hyou” meaning ice (because she’s the Maiden of Winter, you see) and/or the “nun” Phoenician character looking like a “water” (冫) radical that’s part of hyou/ice, and which can itself be called hyou. Maybe it’s all of them and we’re being trolled again! The actual character nun stands for “fish,” hence “Fish Girl.”

More on this as it develops.
