How do you burn in space?

And the 'infinite' was refering to the dimensional-space.

Yeah, like whose translation is truely accurate?

So far we have about three different takes on what that first line actually said, all of them would have used about the same words but in different ways to get different meanings...

Anybody can blow a horn or something? We need all the members of the "Council of Moonspeakers" to sit down and come to a conclusion...

If multi million dollar movies can be that stupid I don't see why not MSLN.
And also, it can always be taken as a metaphor for "destroyed"

In any case, I was hoping to summon a bunch of moonspeakers to settle the translation once and for all...

Do I need a goat or something?

Well, technically, an accurate translation can't be done without pinning-down what original sentences are saying...
And that's where we're stuck, the sentences can be interpleted in many ways that we can't define what's accurate or not

Any chance you can just switch out the japanese words with english in it's exact position? In other words, laying it out raw and unrefine...


(P.S - Though off the record, what's your take on what the first line actually says?)

Aren't wings usually representative of flight? Perhaps these wings are a method of transport to Al-Hazard. Same thing Precia was seeking, which could tie in Scaglietti to her.

I'm thinking it could be some sort of super warship... (Not the first time we've seen those )

Because base on the next two lines, whatever "wing" is, it's going be big enough to cause some serious damage.

Going along the same lines as I was before...

the dead shall dance - Precia? because of a method of transport to Al-Hazard?

"Under the deceased king" - maybe it just means the site of where someone important dies? Maybe this person died a long time ago, too. : /

Dance could also simply mean that the 'dead' were making their moves...

There are three different translation for that part of the line...

1, "The dead/dying King's"

2, "Under the deceased king"

3, "a king shall fall"


As you can see, all of them represent a different meaning... So how do we know which one to follow?

Hmm... I'll try, but me being without proper gramatical knowledges, I don't know how should I "transport" letters like "が", so I'll leave them as they're.
"の" is replaced with "of", but I know that does't apply in all cases, so watch out for many "of"s in where (I think) it's not supposed to be.

From "Ancient Crystal" and "Infinite Desire", I imagined of Jewel Seed too... and "Place" being Al Hazard.
However, that does not include the factors that "supposed to be" important in StS, like Relic or Numbers, so I kinda denied what I once thought... maybe I'm stone-minded.
However, 2nd line also mentions about the "Holy Land", so now I kinda feel like I'm trying to avoid an inevitable conclusion...
That's where I decided to holp up from further consideration and just wait for upcoming EPs and accept the fact when it's given out.

Anyway, yes, I imagined of Jewel Seed and Al Hazard just like many people in here, that's for sure.

Edit:
Unedited... never mind, it's not of big difference anyway

Edit2:
It's 2 a.m here, I'm going to bed... so I can't see your complaints about how eyebleeding these broken sentences are

THis stuff can really be complicated. Just too many meanings just for a single line, then when you put down how each line could be translated it's pretty complex.

Wings...suppose you could go with some sort of transportation, flight. Wings are essential for birds that fly in order to survive. Doubt it's some sort of essential life function. At least it means something would be brought back from this 'Holy Land' which is probably Al-Hazard. So some kind of technology, maybe some power that would carry the one bringing it back to some destiny?

King thing can be a pretty big mess. Either the King is already dead or is going to die. Simply I can take prophecies, not to mention ones that are being translated from another language which just adds to the confusion.

Most likely it'll be some crazy result that no one will see coming. Though with the amount of theories coming out a combination of people may end up being right.

Okay, now that a full translation is available, it's time to once again... BREAK. IT. DOWN!

Spoiler for Analyzing the Translations:


Okay so that's my thoughts. But what could this mean for the OC Thread's RAF?

Not true, we don't really know how much talent she had but she almost certainly had potential. After all, Fate is a clone of Alicia so if Alicia was powerless Fate wouldn't be the black devil she is today. The Tome incident was a dream, Fate even said so, because Fate wouldn't have been born if Alicia hadn't died. Thus, there would be no problem with Alicia being reborn or with her being powerful, if the creators chose to go down that path. Also, the reason dream Alicia was significantly weaker than Fate was because Fate had longed to be loved and praised by Precia and not seen as inferior to Alicia.
Anyway, that's just the "revived wings", which may also mean the revival of some great power long dormant, like if Alhazred were found...
There's some spots that I don't think I've seen any speculation on as well. I think this is what was said in the prophecy(in Japanese), so what does it mean?
Spoiler for The Prophecy:
I think we can rule out "the dead will dance" as referring to Precia(I think someone suggested that), since the "dead" is plural here.

Much of this seems to speak of something ancient. Perhaps "from the dead king" as in coming from some dead royal line. Similarly the "dance of the dead" could refer to the people of some land that's been destroyed. Perhaps it says "In the Middle(or lost?) land where the dead shall dance, the Tower of Law shall burn and fall in vain." I'm wondering about a few things though: What's the "eternal/infinite desire"? Who, or what, is "sakigake", I believe it means pioneer, and what sea is it that the vessel that gets smashed is protecting?
Finally, it doesn't just say "Tsubasa(wings)", it says "Ka no Tsubasa". So what does the "ka" mean? I think I've heard "ka" can mean fire, so is this the "Wings of Flame"?

@Seiryuu

NO no~

It's canon information that Alica HAS NONE of her mother's magic talent. It's From the Novel. Fate was that one the has her mother's potential through the luck of the genetic draw.

I repeat. ALICA. IS. POWERLESS.

Everybody who knows her knows she's powerless. Nobody knows what goes on in AL Hazard or even if she'll make it. NO reason to bring back someone they believe is powerless and can't help them!

Hope this helps somewhat .
oh interesting...this whole "prophecy" garbage had me thinking about the 2nd pokemon movie for a while

heres my 2 cents ~

1) its so obvious that its talking about Al Hazred and the ancient powers it holds...

2) i actually suspect that there is another device that is the polar opposite to hayate's tome...this could finally be a challanged for the unrivaled princess if it proves to be true...i can imagine someone gaining the powers of the death king (or whatever)...maybe spaghetti has more of a role that i thought...

3) and 4) points directly to the downfall of the TSAB...seeing how corrupt some commanders are i wouldnt be surprised if their incompetence will be their downfall to an attack ~ the dead would mean the unliving...or the puppets which points to the clones/relic fighters...the law of the universe is going down it seems...

This second line is the answer to whatever that is going to happen... Unfortunately, it all depens on how the words describing the "King" is used, and we have 3 of them

When I read the first translation posted here, it was "a king shall fall" followed by "the wings will be revived from the holy lands".

Base on the previous statments from the villians side, I concluded the "King" would be Vivio and that she would be the material for a summoning/calling fore.

But now with the other two possible meanings... *Shrugged*

So Dr Pervert is going to access El Hazard and activiate the Eye of God. Using the Eye of God, he will demolish Midchilda and the TSBA.
