Haha loving the attempts at the first 3 words

I am pretty sure the first 3 words is 'In the music' It could be 'In the movie' but wouldnt that be 'In za moobi'

But yes they are the lyrics to 'By The End' by Berry Roll and I did try listening to it, and the lyrics I came up with were a bit. It's only the first half of the song by the way!
Anyway..
I used a translator thing, and here is what it came up with.

Spoiler for Romnji:


I think some of it is correct, but I cant make much sense of it. I bolded the bits I could hear underneath the original line.
So could someone just give me the once over, and try and 'translate' it please.

Yeah I'm native. Thank you for saying otsukare to me haha
When I saw this katakana flood, I'm confused too. "English sentence should be written in alphabet, not katanata" this is recent trend, so I have never seen such a WTF katakana sentence.

meaning something like uh, "because I'll surpass you even while going easy!" (maybe)

edit: wups missed the structure.

should be "I'll be coming without going easy!"

If anyone could translate that for me I would like that. Google hates me, and I'm to lazy to try anything else.

by kanji-jiten net(http://www.kanjijiten.net/)
prononciation: kan, era-bu, eriwa-keru, tegami, nafuda
meaning: select/choice, letter/mail, nameplate
attribute: wood

my imagination: Origin of this letter is wood plate. It was often used as mail or tag for baggage or nameplate, and this way to use generated the meaning "select".
comment: It's unusual letter in Japan. There are so much Kanji(Chinese character), so certain kanjis are often used, but some of them are not used.

tekagen nuki de iku kara ne!

I think "I'll play without going easy!" is better.
But I don't know all meanings of "come", so maybe your translation is better.

you translate iku as be coming, but when someone fight iku means play.
It is same in English, I guess.
"Let's go Justin!!! Your Chun-Li will be winner!"
Does it means someone order Justin to go somewhere? No, go means play, win, or fight.

yeah, I had a bit of difficulty deciding how to translate the iku in this context but seeing how the situation seems to be a fight (as you said) I decided to use "come" as in "come on, bring it!"

more dramatic I thought xD

I was gonna go with:

"I'm not gonna go easy on you!"
or
"I won't hold back!"

As in, she'll attack with full force or without much mercy, at least that's what my intuition is telling me, especially given that in Japanese iku and kuru are oppisite compared to English's

I'm coming!
Ima, iku wa!

(Yes, yes, take it sexually or not, it's the same phrase, lol)
In that card's case, she's the one gonna make the attack and do so with all her might.

Thus be my 2 pence. ^^

Dear Seitsuki & Mystique

Thank you for explanation!
Very interesting.
Knowledge about basic words like go and come is so usuful for me.

More Dramatic. Hmm, I could not think so, because I don't know the function of "come".
But I imagine now. Yes, Japanese iku and kuru is dynamic. It is maybe same as come and go.


In Japanese school, we learn come=kuru, go=iku first. But it is wrong.
There's no easy word-to-word translation.

Quote:
I'm coming!
Ima, iku wa!
(Yes, yes, take it sexually or not, it's the same phrase, lol)
I know it. I guess many Japanese know it, because teenagers who learn English love sexual words.

I think Mystique meant "my two pennies worth." It is an idiomatic expression, more likely to be found in idiom reference books than any random dictionary.

Sometimes I say "this is my two yen" in anime or other Japanese-related forums.

Actually Doraneko, I didn't even know it was originally a British phase, lol.
Quote:
"My two cents" and its longer version "put my two cents in" is an American idiomatic expression, taken from the original British idiom expression: to put in "my two pennies worth" or "my tuppence worth." It is used to preface the tentative stating of one’s opinion. By deprecating the opinion to follow — suggesting its value is only two cents, a very small amount — the user of the phrase hopes to lessen the impact of a possibly contentious statement, showing politeness and humility. However, it is also sometimes used with irony when expressing a strongly felt opinion. The phrase is also used out of habit to preface uncontentious opinions.
The orignal British idiom (言葉遣い) is:
"My two pennies worth"
Americans often use it as "My two cents"
So me being British changed it and replaced it with 'pence.
"My two pence"
(This is all according to American and UK currency)

The way I said it:
"Thus be my two pence" is a little bit of... slang(ミスティックの俗語) from me.
Normal english, is:
"That is my two pence for you", meaning
"That's my humble opinion for this matter."

I hope that explains it for you
A good dictionary for Western idioms is here.
http://idioms.thefreedictionary.com/
You can type in expressions or read from the list. ^^

Gave mah bois in the Nanoha sub-board 3 days, now I'd like to ask y'all for help.

Anyone know what the titles of these doujins translate to? Or at least what the romanji is?

The first one is... "Ainsu" I guess? Ai for love, no idea what the hiragana "nsu" means.

The second one is "Shigu nee-san jiken desu!" the latter part of which is something like "it's an emergency!"

Got something else to ask about: "しょんなか堂" and "御剱剣". What are the romanji and what do they mean, if applicable?
