She's speaking in an ancient dialect of japanese (since she's a bit older, eh?). Very formal and poetic in some ways. Points to the script writers for including that aspect.

Random Curiosity has spoiler review and screencaps up for anyone who is interested. I can't say I'm ecstatic at the animation and anime artwork... but then I'm still Kyoani-damaged. (proceeds to spin in the chair hoping someone has picked it up for subbing).

I'm going to be interested to see how any sub group handles her dialog.... ... okay I'm not certain what time period the story is set in (other than "mid-feudal") so I'm not certain what stylism a subgroup might go for.

Given that the main cast speaks polite-modern japanese mostly.... drop back 250 yrs.... hmmm, almost Middle English if they use modern polite english in the sub????
