Too Little Information

This should be a new tag in this thread, I swear...

Give us the lines before and after or a scene, or explain the scenario and then we may be able to give you the contextually correct English translation.

Re tag:

I agree and sympathize with the poster. Most "Westerners" are just honestly unaware of the particular stipulations involved in translating most Asian languages

Don't worry. Most "Easterners" are oblivious as well. When Japanese people ask for English translations they generally don't include all the necessary context (such as subjects) either.

Like the others said, can't give a translation that I'm 100% sure is correct without context but the meaning is mostly likely:
"When I'm with him/her I can't be honest with myself".

I read it as "Even though I can be honest when I'm not in front of him/her..."

前 does not literally mean "in front" in this case. It's closer to "around" or "with". Other than that the meaning is the same. I just switched the negatives around to try and emphasize that the speaker is blaming him/herself and not the person he/she is referring to.

Thanks Avatar. My thoughts were along the same lines as you translated. But I wasn't sure. And...

*sigh What can you expect when I am typing at 2:00 AM ?

Translating sure is a tough job

Can someone please translate this manga panels please?

The context is: it's the manga ending of Gundam 00 movie. It's a little conversation between Setsuna (male) and Marina (female) who haven't met for decades since Setsuna went to the faraway galaxy and turned into superhuman-alien-being (and a little more text at the end).

Spoiler for manga ending pics:

Your help will be greatly appreciated (not just by me, but also some others ).

Going from right to left:

Page 1: "Marina. Ismairu (Ismail?) definitely a name
"...this voice..."
"...yes....it's been such a long time..."
Page 2: "It's because we just kept passing by each other."

Page 3: We were both seeking the same thing.
There's no mistake.

Page 4: You...were right. And so were you...
Page 5: We...
We...
Last page: were able to understand one another...

In the italic text, is a monologue. Both boy and girl are talking so that's why some words are repeated.

You're welcome! One of my hobbies is translating manga but I haven't done it in a while.

I know....I wish they had just made it so you can pos-rep people. Giving the option for neg-repping was a huge mistake. Sigh.

・18.8cm×26.3cm(B5サイズの上下左右に+3mm)

This is the size of the canvas of a drawing I'm doing for a doujin, what I don't get is the 3mm thing, it is supposed to be a margin in all the sides of the canvas, right?
But do I add it to the "18.8cm×26.3cm" or is it already added??

Also, I was wondering If someone could translate from english to japanese a very short atogaki(後書き) I have to write for the doujinshi, I would post it here, but it would be kinda... embarassing lol

Thank you very much! And sorry for the trouble!

that is the full message.. The rest is an errorcode: [Errorcode: 165-9001-1302]

The software is installed on a windows "emulator" (I'm use a mac with parallels desktop running Windows XP SP3).. maybe that's the problem? That would be kind of weird..

Hrrmm...well I think someone familiar with emulators would be more helpful then. You could try googling the error code maybe. It is an emulator error though, since it says virtual machine followed by the code

B5 paper size is 257mm x 182mm so the dimensions listed are what you get when you add 3mm to each side. Considering that it is artwork, it is mostly likely a margin.

"Capture protection failed to initialize. Execution inside virtual machine is forbidden."

Are you trying to run some sort of DRM software for protecting against screen captures? Or perhaps the software you're running has some sort of DRM included.
