YES AHH I’M SO GLAD I PLAYED THIS GAME;w; were the other fe games similar to this as well? or is it just the pair up system that’s different? And yea they did, I’m currently trying to unlock support convos, and there’s really a lotXD I never thought I’d enjoy this game as much as I am- it’s probably my favourite 3ds title now>w>

Yes we will~! Let’s meet up friday yea! (Man I heard from yq that you bought the slushy maker already and I bought one too orz- I’ll just keep it for myself then haha)

It’s really addictive! And sure! I’ll send you a message :D
So, update on life so far- currently, I’m a week into my approximately one month+ long holiday and pretty much glued to fire emblem awakening (except when i go out), really love the gameplay+story+graphics+animation+style+pairings— basically everything about it. It’s my first time playing a game like this and in my opinion it’s worth every cent i spent. Right now I’m on my second save file playing classic hard mode trying to right the things i didn’t do well in my first playthrough. I’m not ready to play lunatic yet since i would rather not reset all day or play frederick emblem- but hard is already… hard enough for me (god bless bonus box teams).
The turn based tactical strategy gameplay really reminds me of the good old days i use to spend playing chinese chess, and the number of support conversations are so overwhelmingly abundant, the game has no lack of content. I’m even considering to buy the dlc packs now, and i don’t recall ever being so keen to spend on a game. I guess i don’t really have anyone I’m super obsessively fond over in the game, but i find lon’qu/lissa to be really cute, and having lucina as fem mu’s daughter feels very endearing to me. Almost cried a few times, but didn’t since my eyes were too dry from marathoning the game in 3 days…
In conclusion, fire emblem awakening has taken over my life at the moment. Hopefully will return to being productive after this playthrough.
Answer this with ten random facts about yourself and then pass it on to your ten favorite followers! (if you want to) ^q^❞
lol okay I’m gonna be random thenXDD But I’m not gonna pass it on I think (not really a chain mail kinda person) Some you probably already know considering we already know each other for 3 years or more?XD And plus I rant about most on twitter already:P
1: Currently, I have 2 life philosophies I try my best to live by, shaped by my own experiences so I try to keep to them whenever I can. They are, “everything in moderation.” (which is self explanatory) and “Take care of yourself before you take care of others”— because I want to remember that even though I really enjoy helping others- I can’t keep others from falling if I myself do not have a stable footing. Or another analogy being I can’t save someone from drowning if I myself am too. It’s either self destructive (eventually) due to pent up frustration or I might accidentally lash out at innocent parties- harming them and making matters worse. Thought I’ll share this since I think it’s good advice in general haha (it helped me so yea)
2:I just had like a really long chat with my mom (and my dad partially listening) for like 3 hours. It felt good because none of us lost our temper even though we had clashing opinions sometimes, and that I finally have some time to spare to actually socialize with my family- so I’m glad. That resulted in me drinking a whole bottle of water after.
3; MY. EXAMS. ARE. DONE. I’M. DONE. FOR. THE. SEMESTER. (almost, since I still have a plant diversity biology project but in any case EXAMS ARE DONE YAYY)
4: I’m currently working on a parody MAD lol, I hope I don’t lose motivation halfway through again. I have so many things I wanna do over the course of this holiday haha (many of them are also parodies).
5: Of course they are all Digimon related because my mind is all Digimon mush.
6: I’m currently participating in a Digimon OCT tournament on DeviantArt, known as DXT2- it’s my first time doing stuff like this and so far I’m really having a lot of fun with it even though I always have no time for it lol orz. It’s a really challenging and enriching experience, and the people are really nice :3c
7: I have a ton of games I bought but haven’t even touched. That includes my pokemon Y (though i completed X lol yea I bought both), Fire Emblem Awakening, Persona 3, ANB mostly untouched, Layton (miracle mask) mostly untouched, my legit copy of twewy (though I played it till quite far in my game cart version) and the copy of virtue’s last reward I borrowed from my friend Miharu. I also suspect my room in acnl to be infested with cockroaches by now since I haven’t touched it since August. Haven’t played them mostly due to lack of time and the overwhelming sense of guilt from playing when school work hasn’t been cleared.
8: I just completed my pokemon XY puzzle on puzzle swap today yessss.
9: I really love Soichirou Hoshi’s voice (Masaru’s Japanese VA), but at the same time I’m really picky about the kinda voice he uses. Because Hoshi’s a very talented and versatile VA who can do a huge variety of voices and ranges- but I’m only really fond of one type. Of course, it’s the Masaru type of voice quality where he sounds kinda rough/manly/husky and hotheaded/serious- other examples of characters with such voices I know of within Hoshi’s works are the voices he used for Kasamatsu Yukio, Sanada Yukimura, and to a certain degree Tendou Jin. Probably the guy from Higurashi too but I’m not ready to watch that show, possibly never ready.
10: On a more depressing note, I nearly broke down like 3 to 4 times this semester. Due to workload and stress and all that, the usual student fare. I’m kinda angry and confused since I tried to put in consistent work and yet everything still feels overwhelming, and last minute work still has to be done. It feels like the effort I put in were for naught- but oh well. Hopefully I’ll recover my brainpower after the (approximately) month long holiday, and face the new challenges with a more ready mind and soul.
11: One more because I just recalled another haha (and I can never say no to 11), even though it was a stressful semester- it was also a semester where I had 2 life changing field trips because of my biology course. One was from my Bintan trip, where I went snorkeling, and explored the rich marine life of what’s underwater. The other was a beach seining trip to Changi beach from my country Singapore. We had to reel up some marine life for the sake of hands on learning. And while the teacher was teaching us about certain fishes, the others entangled by the net were slowly dying due to being out of water. Some were also injured. It really made me think more about the nature of Biology, where many times— the knowledge accumulated from this field of study was resulted from the piles of dead organisms that have been used in the name of Science. It really made me question if our knowledge was really worth sacrificing their lives for, even though at the same time I’m aware of it’s benefits. It’s just, morally draining for me. I guess I can only ever be a biologist on paper.

*whispers* I actually want all of them /shot/ But I was worried that it’ll be too much trouble for you so I only asked for Hikari>w> But if it’s not too much trouble I would love to see the other transcripts as well;w;
(deep breath) Here we go!
Again, I invite people to point out any mistranslations, of which there are probably quite a few, so I can correct them!
lol I kinda wanna translate iori’s a bit more, the translation is mostly right, actually- but I think some parts can be changed a bit for the conversation to flow better:) Hope I’m not being too nitpicky orz.
quirkiilogical replied to your post “Digimon Adventure Character File post-epilogue dialogue (02 kids)”
Ahhh precious babies!! Haha stingmon fanboying over ken, what an oddly fitting mental imagexD sorry but, is it possible to have a transcript for some of these as well (especially hikari/shot)? a photo will do if typing out is too troublesome qwq
It’s not a problem at all! I had to type it up in the process of translation, so all I have to do is just copy and paste it.
It’s funny you ask for Hikari’s because there’s a certain line in there I actually had the most trouble with in all of them, I’m still curious if I got it right haha uvu
Hikari’s is below, so if you want the others just let me know~
Ah, sorry for reblogging- was contemplating between reblogging or sending a mail so that I can keep track of what I typed for the translation (so I can look out for mistakes in my own words lol) Below is what I think can be added/modified to the translation, some of it is just minor stuff that I think more or less doesn’t change much of the meaning- but just adding them in since I saw them, lol.
another comic because i have a bajillion different headcanons for post series ikuto
cool looks like you had a great time! :> i’m so jelly of the autograph lol. volume 15 was my first pokemon adventures book so it’s pretty special to me too, haha.
Yea I did! ;w; (mostly about the autograph session because I grin every time I start thinking about it/see it) Vol 15 wasn’t my first (vol 10 was), but it was the introduction to my ever favorite arc and character in pokemon adventures, so I guess it’s special to me too^^ If you like, if I ever know of another session like that (possibly won’t be in a few years but), I’ll just send you an ask or something informing you? You can then decide whether you want to go on your own:) I never thought having autographs and drawings by the authors on your book is such a great feeling until I actually experienced it for myself. It feels really great;w;
Photo summary of today! Pictures 1 to 3, I was attending Hidenori Kusaka & Satoshi Yamamoto’s autograph session, where satoshi yamamoto sensei signed and drew me a Ruby, and hidenori kusaka sensei took a photo with me:D My friend Miharu requested for a Red, so I took a photo of hers as well:D
Here’s my recording of satoshi yamamoto’s ruby drawing ^^ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cPcmMa6jup0
This is really the greatest thing that happened to me today, hahaXD Haven’t been so happy since the bintan field trip when I went snorkeling for the first time. Initially when Miharu dragged me along I wasn’t really that enthusiastic, kinda felt like I was just keeping her company than really going because I wanted to- but that became totally nullified when I actually went to get the autograph, and realized that I CAN ACTUALLY REQUEST DRAWINGS OF ANY OF THE POKESPE CHARACTERS- I went over the moon in a matter of seconds, and of course- I chose Ruby because ahhh I love Ruby. Though at one point I thought Yamamoto was giving ruby a black eye until I realized he was drawing his glasses- made me horrified then relieved lol. Also felt that japanese signatures are really interesting, like for the case of Satoshi Yamamoto’s, you can actually tell from his strokes that his signature is a mesh up of his name Yamamoto, written in a really interesting way. Hidenori Kusaka’s signature is so cute hahaXD Really appreciated the photo taking opportunity, as well as handshake. That expression is priceless lolXD
I feel like I really got to thank my lucky stars for allowing me and Miharu to get the signatures, because we literally are the last 2 people who are allowed to, as after ours are done Beelzebub’s author supposed to conduct another signing session- I think Miku’s illustrator, Kei- is there to conduct one too. Initially, we should have, by rights, not be able to get our books signed, because we actually arrived a tad too late, just right after the “queue ends here” sign’s established. We were told that the queue line ends there and the people from me and miharu onward can still continue to queue, but not guaranteed a chance to get the autographs. We considered going then and there but decided to stay.
Then a miracle happened, the venue the signing was held at, kinokuniya, was, possibly. short on staff- so short in fact, that they asked me and miharu- supposed consumers to help them hold the “queue ends here” sign for them. We agreed to help, and did so while making little jokes about free labor to each other while we held the sign up. It was quite tiring to keep having the sign raised straight up so others could see, and apparently the staff felt bad enough for using us that they decided to extend the end of queue to us instead, making us the last 2 to get our books signed.
I felt really sorry for everyone behind us though, especially the one right behind us. He was just right behind, yet the difference between him and us is that we got our books signed, and he waited till the end for an opportunity that eventually never came. Thinking back, I felt like I should have lied to the staff and told them he was my friend or something, so that I could drag him along to get the manga signed, even though I don’t know him at all. There was another case of a girl, who suddenly went behind us even though no one was supposed to be at that point, and was later ushered out by the staff even though her dad pleaded with them, because it was actually the girl’s birthday and they came here specially for the signing today. Even though I agree with the staff (internally) that it has to be done, for the sake of fairness to all the others who are still queuing in the hopes that they’ll get a chance, it was still, really sad. Seeing the guy who was just behind us, hopefully waiting till the last moment, was also really sad. Really wished the signing could have been longer than a little over an hour, but I understand that doing that would be of inconvenience to the next mangaka as well.
That being so, I am very grateful for the privilege that was granted to us. I will treasure my vol 15 even more from now on. Speaking of which, satoshi yamamoto, upon receiving my book for him to sign and draw, commented "すごいね、この本”, most likely due to my yellowing book with worn out edges, which I had since primary school (I’m in university now). Whether he meant it positively or negatively, I do not know- but I did know that the state of my book was a result of many years, as well as a lot of reading and re reading over the years- so I won’t feel ashamed no matter what the connotation means.
After the signing session we proceeded to AFA, reaching at around 3pm. It’s for the most part, pretty uneventful and hard to enjoy since the crowd was so big that we were like particles within a semi solid and liquid state (bad metaphor, but what I mean is it’s really packed and hard to move); so big that after a while it became hard to breathe and it was hard to walk in general. Did take some pictures here and there. There was a wall near the colossal titan balloon, where you can pretend to be a colossal titan yourself, but I chickened out in the end because I was too shy about climbing to a higher place to take a picture. Oh well.
Also saw a chihayafuru illustration being displayed, as well as a Taichi and Chihaya cosplayer. Couldn’t resist taking photos of those because Chihayafuru stuff IS REALLY FRIGGIN RARE. I wished I had a “Caruta” shirt so I could have fangirled along with fellow chihayafuru fans.
Lastly, after the event, I am now ONE FRIGGIN PUZZLE away from completing my XY puzzle. SO FRIGGIN CLOSE YET IT WASN’T MEANT TO BE. Miharu managed to complete hers though, we tested around a bit and I suspect that my 3ds just happened to have a really weak streetpass signal receptor. Because people walk past the both of us and yet only miharu’s catches the signal.
And then after we had dinner we went to zepy games and I bought a TCP cover (so I don’t have to keep unzipping my pouch to know if I got a streetpass.) There were hiccups here and there but it definitely was a memorable and enjoyable day:)
I apologize for any typos or grammatical mistakes in advance for I am now really tired.
