[Translation Tuesday] – The Songs of Kiseki – Sora no Kiseki and Hoshi no Arika


This week’s Translation Tuesday is a small offering, as I’m trying to build up some time ahead to get a major thing completed for an upcoming entry.

As such, we welcome a translation from Yotaka in my stead. For this week’s Translation Tuesday, not only has Yotaka translated the opening and ending themes for Trails in the Sky, but he has also provided subtitled videos of them, as well.

Below, you will find the videos, as well as the lyrics for these songs translated, romanized, and in their original kanji.

[Translation…. Wednesday??] Bonus! Ring of Judgment Complete Download


Not really a full Translation Tuesday, and it’s even an off week today. The next Translation Tuesday goes live next Tuesday!

Instead, as requested, since the entire run of Ring of Judgment is complete, I’ve compiled all the chapters into a single .rar file, complete with the two bonus pages.

This is especially appropriate with Trails of Cold Steel II coming out in less than two weeks now, since you get to see Toval as a main character in this short manga story!

You can find and download the whole set below!

Happy reading!

[Translation Tuesday] Ys Timeline – The Ancient Civilization and Related Events Part 2 – Errata


This week’s Translation Tuesday is a continuation of the timeline that was posted on 7/21/2016. This includes various side bits of information from the same book, as well as an additional timeline from the Ys Global Guidebook, another interesting material book, that was published in 1989, and focused entirely on the settings for Ys I and II.

The Ys Global Guidebook will likely be used in a future Translation Tuesday, as well.

As before, I am the primary translator behind this post, but I’ve had assistance in translation from Yotaka, as well as proofreading help from both Yotaka and S_Tiger.
