Why does that photo give me a thrill? Is it thinking of the staff eating lunch on that open top floor? Is it voyeurism? Is it the fact that human beings can sit in such an ordinary building and produce such great stuff? Or is it just the stupid enjoyment I get from seeing everyday life in Japan? In any case, thanks very much for the moment.

I get the same depressed feeling when I realize how few people, comparatively, are able to see through the pre-flight kiss and the sibyllae's outfits to the great human story. But I actually don't mind the nether-region marketing, as long as the higher-level aspects get included, too, as they are to some extent in the pages we've seen from Megami. Whatever works.

I think it's both -- my theory is that Daikuuriku is an abandoned space colony like the world in Mai-Otome, but they were abandoned so long ago that they've forgotten their origins. It's clearly not Earth, because it's in a binary star system, and the moon is larger and has a different pattern of craters and maria.

I come to think of Daikuuriku to be an artificially-made moon product of humanity's lost science and technology.

Much like Prestale is from Last Exile.

Simoun episode 14

Episode 14 deals with the nature of the simoun; whether is a holy object or just a machine. Wapourif has to make a tough decision. Here's my quick summary. I'll add more detail tomorrow.

How do they do it? Another great, deep, emotional episode. Very little happened, you might say, but what did went straight to my heart. wrex's summary is right on.
Spoiler for ep14:
Oh, wait. I guess a lot did happen after all. Have I mentioned before how wonderful I think this show is?

EDIT:
Spoiler for some comments from 2channel:

Yes, I have to agree.
14 was another great episode.
How can they cover our reality to such a deep level on the basis of that unrealistic setting and stuff?

Spoiler:


Well, It seems we got to have many things to know from now on...

Simoun is surprising me so far. Someone recommended it and I downloaded it on a whim, and almost threw it out when I saw that not only was it mecha it was yuri mecha; two genres which more often than not, produce shows that really fucking suck. Since the subs are pretty far behind the raws, I can only hope it stays as good and doesn't degenerate into something that was plainly created just to feature cute girls kissing.

How hard it must be for the fansubbers, translating all those irregular words. Thanks Doremi.

Wapourif is a gal ^_~ and she may not have been able to see what Dominuura had seen because she was not a sibylla; in other words, only priestesses can see that which is sacred.

No, Wapourif is a guy. The "-f" always indicates masculinity, and there was on-screen dialogue back in episode 3 establishing that he had chosen to be male when he went to the Spring two years ago. He only went two years ago, however, and whatever process turns people male hasn't had time to fully complete yet for him, which is why his breasts haven't been completely reabsorbed. (They must have been quite large to begin with.)

No, that girl is not Wapourif, its a different person (forget her name now), but I don't think she's (now he) featured any longer. Whereas Wapourif the maintenance manager has been around for some time.

And Dominura certainly knows a hell of a LOT more than other peeps on Chor Tempest, even the squadron leaders, so I don't know if anything she does or notices is actually 'revelation'....not gotten to ep14 yet by the way, so I may still be ignorant.

the girl is erif (ep02) but warpourif did explain to morinas that he had gone to spring 2yrs ago (and become male) in the ep where morinas arrived and join the fleet.

The difficulty is all on the viewers, unfortunately; being subjected to inconsistent translations and all. I'm inclined to believe that the terminology established outside our releases is more accurate, but I don't mind either way.

Doremi's Sim05 will be out soon; things should pick up due to our recent resource allocation.

It's actually not hard -- the technical jargon sticks out of the dialogue like a sore thumb. And coming up with the correct translation for the jargon itself is easier than you'd think, because it's mostly Latin, with a smattering of Greek and French. On top of that, there's a lot of supplementary information available out there: the official website, the staff blog, the Wikipedia article, this forum, and other places. Trying to approach this series like any other fansub, just by listening to the dialogue, would be difficult, but fortunately, we don't have to do that.

Once you understand what all of the jargon means and how it fits together, it's logically self-consistent, and easy to use. In our sub, we're trying to do as good a job as we can of explaining all this to the viewer through the dialogue, and we hope that after a few episodes, it'll seem logical to the viewers, too.
