Question for any Japanese r/w'ers out there: What is the kanji/kata/hiro for 'Boku Satchii!' I want to use it as my user title =)
I don't really know if it's Sacchii or Saacchii, but anyway, it should be written somehow like:
僕サアッチイ、宜しくね!
(boku Sacchii, yoroshiku ne!)

Hmmm... yeah but, why using katanaka in "boku" when it's japanese?

I think that's because

a. In normal Japanese they can use katakana for personal pronouns (is that the word? Stuff like atashi, boku, kimi) - especially for emphasis

b. Satchii's not human and katakana is frequently used to indicate "dead" speaking (robotic voices, sometimes used for sarcasm)

Or well, that's as far as I understand but then I'm not a translator or anything like that.

And it's definitely サッチー, you could find that out even from the official site I think...

Apparently I missed a page.. didn't see RebootEDC's reply when I made mine, sorry.
I checked the source material specifically to check how they we're writing boku.
Here's the pages on Sacchi in the first DVD booklet:

http://picasaweb.google.com/shiroban...61154098766834
I've only taken the odd sample shots from the conte booklets and I don't appear to have captured the line in question (if I'd thought I'd've taken a snap when I had the DVDs out earlier)

however the whining, the pleading the...i dunno how to describe it, the helplessness and ignorant innocences of Okonogi really wants me to pick her up, shake her abnout and dash her head against a wall or something.


i just don't understand WHY she makes me so anger. it's irrational. but she does.

so if i have to rate this series it has to be at leases a 7 or 8.

Remove Okonogi-san then it will be a 9, even a 10 i suppose.

Poor Okonogi I do like her (Yuuko) ~~ even if she was a little bit annoying at times, I think her presence really showed how cool some of the other people were as well.

So it's been some time since I've been keeping up with Dennou Coil news, but I heard Iso Mitsuo attended a SF seminar in Japan recently to talk about Dennou Coil (more like an interview) and there were some interesting things being said.

All I've read is this one long report by a 2channer who went for the seminar, but damn I wish I could've gone just to hear him actually talk about stuff.

Anyway, here's a very very rough... excuse of a translation of the report - don't take it literally, it's second-hand information processed sloppily so... don't base your opinion on Iso entirely on this!

Spoiler for length - no spoilers for the show:

Wow! Fastest translation I've ever done for anything this length -_-

EDIT: Additional stuff from a blog post, forgive me if I've missed out anything, my eyes will die if I read any more for today. It is much more detailed but focuses mainly on the SF stuff, not Coil: ttp://d.hatena.ne.jp/lain06/20080504 Again, really rough.

Spoiler for length:



And I think I vaguely remember there being a Coil special in February's Animage or something and it included an interview, but that's so long ago I don't have any way of getting it and... well... bleah, my fault for not keeping up
I ended up not translating the few other Coil materials I have, and I haven't been able to get the DVDs since the second one dammit, I'm sure by the time I can the limited ed ones would be totally sold out... some fan I am I want to see more storyboards, whimper.

Hmm the whole science fiction aspect interested me. I personally think Dennou Coil can be considered science fiction. The genre is a lot more broad than a lot of people might assume. And the idea behind the Dennou world could possibly be seen in the future. I always felt science fiction was fictional but in the realm of being possible. Whether that possibility is closer to now or an unknown future should not be an issue.

But if someone doesn't like the term science fiction than how about speculative fiction? Which basically tells stories of "what if?"

I happened to be browsing the latest installment of ratings from Siegel Clyne and came across this surprising tidbit:

*3.3% (**.*%) 05/24 (Sat) *6:25pm-*6:50pm NHK-ETV Dennou Coil (Rerun)

Dennou Coil is garnering a 3.3 rating in reruns! That puts it well ahead of most new shows in Siegel Clyne's list. Is this a prime timeslot for anime programs that might attract a broader family audience?

Sadly Seirei no Moribito is floundering around under two in its rerun showing on Sunday mornings.

DVD sales for Dennou Coil don't seem reflective of the ratings. The DVD sales thread reports sales figures in the 2-3,000 range per disc. That's again a lot better than poor Seirei, but still on the low end of the sales spectrum compared to other series in that thread.

That's great news! I can't clearly remember the ratings it got during its initial airing, but I think it's doing better in the reruns... that's really nice to know. Well, it might be a very long shot but one can hope it follows the example of the original Gundam and Eva that got popular only during reruns (what am I saying, it won't end up that popular...)

I think 6:25-6:50pm is quite a good timeslot though - if I'm not wrong earlier it aired at 6:30-7:00pm with the very popular MAJOR before it from 6:00-6:30pm (I think - too lazy to check) And it's on NHK Educational which airs all over Japan unlike NHK BS2, a satellite channel which Moribito is airing on.

Apparently people say that you shouldn't expect NHK shows to sell that many dvds though - because a greater amount of the viewers are casual, non-otaku types who are not likely to buy anime DVDs especially if it's a recent show that they just watched and is likely to get rerun. Apparently.

Epic bump of justice!

Some days back (...more than a week by now?) there was a 4-hour Coil Night event (EDIT: I think ti's the same one as mentioned by manuloz up there) held where Iso and a bunch of the other staff came and talked (they showed a bit of ep 10 too). According to the blog of Tadashi Hiramatsu (the guy responsible for the OP and ep 10), there was a 10-year-old kid and a deaf-mute, all sorts of people (have you ever really thought about deaf-mute anime fans?)

There was Iso, Inoue, Nomura, Hiramatsu and the special guest was none other than Gisaburou Sugii (best known for the animated Night on the Galactic Railroad movie?).

To be honest I kind of forgot about it entirely after reading about it on Hiramatsu's blog, but today I kinda remembered about it again so unless some kind soul would like to do it faster and better than me, wait for it. I think there's little about it in English yet...

My real reason for posting here however is that...

They're making what sounds like a real Dennou Coil artbook!!11!1one
Dennou Coil Visual Collection.
Amazon link.
The Animage site (currently) has this announcement of it: It features a genga collection, handpicked by Toshiyuki Inoue, and will reveal most of the designs and materials drawn by Iso himself. Usually you can't trust anime magazines when they say it will be a "ve~ry thick book", but here's the details...
Size: A4 (!)
Pages: expected to be 288 (!!... of course, how much is actual content remains to be seen)
Price: 3500 yen (hello everybody, my birthday is next Tuesday*)

Animage says it's expected to go on sale 30th June (oh wow, that's just six days aft- *ahem* sorry) but Amazon says 11 July. Which one to believe? The official site is as unhelpful as ever, doesn't have a peep on this topic.


* - this is actually true.

I failed to find it on Yes Asia, but they do have a Roman Album I was unaware of (protip: if you switch to the beta site you can search using kanji). Otaku have more pictures of it, but also do not have this new "visual collection" book.

Yeah, that one came out sometime back and focused a bit more on the 2nd half of teh series as opposed to the first book that came out halfway through the show.

Right, now for some Kwality translation work from yours truly:

Dennou Coil Night

Spoiler for prelude/description of event:


The event was in 3 parts:
Part 1a - Iso, Inoue, Hiramatsu do a live audio commentary of the last episode
Part 1b - After the commentary, the even'ts special guest, veteran director Gisaburo Sugii (Kanashimi no Belladonna AD, Night on the Galactic Railroad, Touch director) talks to Iso

Part 2 - Professional critic and university professor (among other things) Hiroki Azuma and Hiroshi Yamaguchi talk to Iso about Dennou Coil.

Part 3 - Rest of the staff joined in, with some commentary on Hiramatsu's episode 10 + OP and other things. (casual izakaya atmosphere)


Spoiler for Part 1a:


Spoiler for Part 1b (Sugii):


23/06: Coil Night part two.

God, I'm pooped from flipping between a bunch of blog entries to write all that, so forgive the awful rambling writing style as usual... I may have made some gross errors in part 1b because it's SO long and I don't think I really know what they're saying sometimes (different blogs say different things).

I added some lousy headings, hope it helps. But that's it for now, I'll translate part 2 (which was not very popular among most event-goers, most say it felt like they were talking about stuff not all that related to Dennou Coil) and 3 (which has more anecdotes) some other time. You can attempt to trudge through this in the meantime.

Suggestions, comments, corrections and clarifications are HIGHLY welcome

Almost all information taken from the blog entries listed here (major super ultimate props to the people who wrote these reports and compiled them!): http://d.hatena.ne.jp/cure/20080617/p1

As always, wao, that was absolutely fascinating, and thank you for going to such efforts to translate all of that for the rest of us.

To be honest, I sometimes read interviews with animators where they don't really have anything particularly interesting to say, but as Dennou Coil was a project so close to Iso I think it's unsurprising that the interview turned out so intriguing.

Spoiler for To save space on the page, I've put this in a spoiler box:

I'm greatly impressed and appreciative,. I've not finished reading everything but I need to make a couple of comments before I get lost in all the text and forget them.

They really should have done this earlier, then they could have recorded it and included it on the DVDs.
