[Translation Tuesday] The Legend of Heroes Zero no Kiseki Pre-Story: The Ring of Judgment – Chapter 02

trans-tues

With this week’s Translation Tuesday, we’re back at the Ring of Judgment manga. In fact, the third chapter will also be the next one after this. These are quick edits for me, and I will have company over starting this week, but I don’t want you all to miss out on stuff here.

RoJ02-Toval

These come from the scanslation work that I did with Eidenyaku, and still maintain Shram’s translations- despite some re-edits and tweaks here and there to make the English flow a little better in the text. The fonts are also much more clear and readable, in my opinion. Eventually, as I finish these, we will come across the epilogue chapter that was added to the book release of the manga, as well as a pair of bonus pages that were also released then- but not until we’re finished with it.

Something else to note is that this manga does take place after SC. While it hasn’t come across much of the spoilers for SC, the fourth chapter absolutely will. So if you’re following this, you may want to finish the game before I get to that particular chapter.

You may also notice some interesting ‘issues’ with the pages as they were scanned. That is because these scans came from the run of the manga while it was in the magazine Dengeki Maoh. Though it is printed on lower quality quality paper, the pages are also larger in size than the published book, which allows for higher quality scans in the end.

If you haven’t read the earlier chapters, you can find them below:

[Translation Tuesday] The Legend of Heroes Zero no Kiseki Pre-Story: The Ring of Judgment – Chapter 01

Though it may be straight forward for most, please remember that this is a Japanese manga and it hasn’t been flipped. As a result, remember to read from right to left!

[Sniffslation (??) Tuesday] – A Tale of Buttery Waffles and Plot Twists

sniffslation-tuesday

We have had a temporary staff change for this week’s Translation Sniffslation Tuesday.

I’m so sorry you must experience the power of Sniff the Raven in such a deliciously glorious way.

On technical information, I want to add that this is the first video I’ve captured with my Elgato, so it is in beautiful 1080p, at 60FPS. Any other future videos captured from any of the games will be in this kind of formatting, hopefully.

Early Script Prep: Gu4n, omgfloofy
Translation (???): Sniff the Raven
Video Capture and Timing: omgfloofy
Editing: …who are we kidding, someone edited this??

oh, by the way. happy belated april fool’s day!

Chara-Ani Does April Fool’s Again: The 3rd Evolution Website is a Reminder of the Geocities Days

3rdevo-april fools

Chara-Ani re-launched the Sora no Kiseki the 3rd Evolution website with some pretty big cosmetic changes. They call back to a date of early websites, when people used IE and Netscape and had a (greater) penchant for animated gifs all over the place.

Chara-Ani has done an April Fool’s page for the Evolution games in the past, but it’s been nothing like this.

In fact, they’re currently running a kiriban contest on twitter. If you get one of the numbers on the list, screenshot it and tweet it at the official account.

I have also made an archive of the site so that once it’s gone, you can still experience the beauty that is their April Fool’s re-launch. It’s too good to not archive.
