Thanks, I had an idea thats what it said since I can read the individual words but putting it together and having it make sense is another issue.

I don't know if this is asking too much but could someone translate(or maybe even softsub) http://www.gametrailers.com/player/28268.html the speech and those kanji's. I really appreciate it if you even try translating that. Thanks.

@LiberLibri: one thing, would it make more sense if the phrase was ore wa, tamashii yo uta? I had to base my question off what Im hearing and not actually reading it. I think what I heard as no might be yo if that helps any.

It would be better if it is "ore wa tamashii o utau". 俺は魂を歌う; I sing a song of my soul. "X o utau" means to sing a song inspired by X.

"song is my soul"
or 俺は歌の魂 - ore wa uta no tamashii
"I'm the soul of my song"

Actually I finally got the romaji lyrics which is what I needed and the line is ore wa tamashii wo utta

Greetings:

I know this might be a little long but I'd really appreciate a translation FAR better than Google Translation Services can give with this blog report from http://yujibatta.blog118.fc2.com, thank you!

Dee



今日で2008年の6月も終わり。
パワパフZ放送終了から1年です。

1年経っても私はパワパフZの事を好きなままで、
1年経ってもHPは何だかんだで更新していて、
そして1年経っても未だに漫画が終わっていない。


そんな私ですが、何と言うか……放送終了して1年経った、
と言われてもあんまり実感がわかないんですよね。

終了後半年間はDVD出てたし、
その後の半年は個人的な事情でぼーっとする暇が
なかった、っていうのもありますが……

やっぱり大きな理由は、「スタッフの方に会ったから」、かなぁ。


私としては、ファンサイトでスタッフの方の話を持ち出すというのは
あまり良くない事ではないかと思うのですが、
こういう機会なんでちょっとだけ。



前のオフでスタッフの方にお会いした時、強く感じた事というのが、
パワパフZのスタッフ、少なくともあそこにいたお三方の中では、
「パワパフZという作品」は、「終わってはいない」のだな、という事。

あの方たちがパワパフZの話題について喋っている時も、
全然 「終わった作品」の事を話しているように聞こえないんですよ。
現在進行中の作品について語っているようにすら見えるんです。

ただそれは、
第2期が絶対にあるものと盲目的に考えているわけでも、
逆に、第2期を作るのに必死になっているというわけでもなく、

パワパフZという作品に対して、
『自然体』で接してるからこそ、そう見えたのだと思います。


今、自分がやるべき事というのをしっかりとこなし、
その上で、第2期を作るのなら全力で作る。
そういった気概のようなものを、あの方たちからは感じました。

(※これはあくまで私個人の主観です。
 「第2期はあるんだ!」というようには考えないでください。)

そういう面を見ると、
ああ、やはりこの人たちはプロなのだ、と感じると同時に、
自分たち、パワパフZのファンである私たちも、変に気負いせず、
『自然体』で、パワパフZという作品に接していけばいいのだろうな、
と、そう再確認させられました。


私たちは、「今」楽しめる事を全力で楽しめばいいんですよ。
アニメ「出ましたっ! パワパフガールズZ」という作品は、
少なくとも2008年6月30日現在までは、
1年間放送した「あれ」しか存在しないのですから。

Supposedlu Untranslatable

Hi!

This is supposedly "untranslatable" by the users of this anime blog -- unless they're trying to discourage forum participation by "foreigners" like moi!

Please take a crack at it! Thanks!

Dee

それこそ「冗談はみやこさんですよ」
と言いたくなるような話なんですが、

うちのサイト、海外からアクセスして
来てくれる人が結構……いやかなりいます。
(これは本家パワパフ人気の効果でしょうけど)


それでまぁ、どういうワケかあの漫画が好評なようでして、
英語や中国語で翻訳してくれてる人もいるみたいです。
(ホント、冗談みたいなハナシだ……)

で、その辺のフォーラムの人に
「テイルズやってないで漫画描け」(超意訳)
と言われたので……というワケではないのですが、
漫画の56・57ページをアップしました。
いやぁ、ホントこいつら描いてて楽しいわぁ〜。


……もう一つ。
その海外の方から、「バニーの話は描かないの?」
って聞かれる事が結構あるんですが。

……そうですねぇ。描いてみたいですねぇ。

There are 3 terms for 'realm' but the definition for this one, seems to fit best for the meaning of 'realm' in terms of God to me. Other translators may have more historical knowledge on the different terms and offer suggestions

It seems a beautiful translation.

I don't know the subtle nuance of "realm" in English, but my first impression was that it could be translated as "神の領域" (kami no ryouiki); in Japanese, the phrase is often used when something is far beyond the ability of a normal person. For example, Liszt Ferenc's piano was "kami no ryouiki".

@Peanutbutter003

Excerpt:
Quote:
From Saito, in the Contents Management Division of Kadokawa.

We found that the movie you put in Youtube used our contents without authorisation. It constitutes a copyright violation.

However, we think that your intention was not hostile to us; you used our contents in a friendly way. Therefore we decided as followings:

- the movie will be set under our control
- an authorisation mark and ads will be inserted into the movie

No additional work will be imposed on you. We will take the whole process.
Later you will receive an E-mail from Youtube concerning this business. If you want to make a claim, follow the conciliation process thereon.

Thank you.

Would "domain" or "kingdom" or even "province" work?

The nuance of 'realm' to me, is more spiritual and otherworldly, nothing that is usually euqated to mortality or humans per say. In this case since it's God, i thought bout the connotations assoiciated with him and picked the most suitable japanese word to match with it
in terms of ryouki:
領域 【りょういき】 (n) area; domain; territory; field; region; regime; (P) [Ex]
かかわってくる問題は経済学の領域をはるかに越えている。 The questions involved go far beyond economics

-that idea of realm is more to do with 'area' of let's say knowledge and expertise as that example shows. More related with definition #3 as shown below methinks....

General dictionary definition is as follows:
–noun
1. a royal domain; kingdom: the realm of England.
2. the region, sphere, or domain within which anything occurs, prevails, or dominates: the realm of dreams.
3. the special province or field of something or someone: the realm of physics; facts within the realm of political scientists.

So as always, it depends on meaning of 'realm' -karumA- meant when he wanted that translation.

I figure we should make people specify the exact meaning they want first when they want translation from english to japanese, seeing how sensitive japanese is as a language.

Thanks.
I mean, I know the definition of the word, but there should be something delicate that only natives know. For example, you could say "provincial government", but "realm govenment" sounds trange, doesn't it? Likewise, "territorial dispute" is a correct wording while "realm dispute" cannot be accepted. I believe "realm" (or any other words) has its own realm in the semantic continuum. English users hate re-iteration of words and therefore tend to change the terminology even in similar contexts so much that learners like I sometimes have difficulty in discovering the kernel of the concept.

Thanks a lot.
Now I recognise strongly the critical necessity of dual correction in translation.

>Lucky☆Star Script

It reads (from down to below, 1.jpg to 2.jpg):

Tsukasa:T
Yamato:Y
Kagami:K
Izumi:I
Konata:O

K Eh, what did you say?
Y No. Forget it. Now, what's your business?
K Can you spare minutes for me? I want to talk about the school festival.
Y No. I have nothing to do with it.
K Yes, you have something! It involves all members of our class.
Y Then, suppose that I were not the member.
K How dare you say so? You sound quite irresponsible.
Y I have had no responsibility since the beginning. Can we stop chatting now?
K No! Do you think you are privileged?
Y Not really. I think I am just what I am.
K Shut up the nonsense. You are kidding me!
T What's the mess? Stop the quarrel!
K I know I shouldn't, but this girl...
M Calm down please. I heard your conversation. I understand both of your positions. So, please now.
O Ms. Nagamori, I see you dislike the troublesome school festival. But I beg you for your help.

I have a little request, as part of my fanfic background research (as I'm gonna incorporate it into a graduation scene): can anyone translate Mary Schmich's famous "Sunscreen" speech to Japanese romanji?

http://kids.niehs.nih.gov/lyrics/graduation.htm

Here and and a PM would be very helpful. Full credit to the translator in the fanfic I'm working on.

I'm having trouble reading these ( I know they're not that hard, but I'm kind of slow):


Correct me if I'm wrong but is this

執着していないような言動があったが .

shuujaku shiteinai you na gendou ga atta ga?


偽名 - gimei ?

身元 - I'm not sure about this one

黙認していた

数ヶ月後

出版する

You don't have to give the meaning, just the romanization would be nice.
