Finally starting to feel better. With any luck the next translation will be on time (though I suspect the illustrations may be missing at first, as my scanner is acting up).

ngl this one's a bit rushed. I'm going to be out of town this Wednesday, so I wanted to have the next translation up before I left. WE'LL FIX IT IN POST.

Scrapped Princess | Canzonetta of the Unforgiven | The Transgressor | Part 3/4 )

A note about Galil's and Zephy's speech patterns: they both use archaic pronouns, conjugations, phrasings, etc., but not exclusively. So I don't use strict verb agreement with the archaic pronouns in English (which was apparently accepted in the familiar form, at least).

I dunno. I'm not a linguist, and even if I were, I don't think I'd want to load the text with -eths and -ests anyway, just for the sake of flow. So I'm going by ear and sprinkling just enough archaisms to mimic the flavor. Obviously I could change my mind about this in a month or two, aha.

ON AN ENTIRELY UNRELATED NOTE: I just now realized that Chris uses a trick weapon, which is kind of funny seeing as he doesn't even have his halberd in this section.

I've compiled content notes for all the previous translations and will continue to add notes from now on. They're listed on a separate post so that people who wish to read the translations unspoiled may do so. I'll also provide a link to them at the beginning of every translation post, outside the cut, so people can read the notes without needing to click through the main text.

Also uploaded a couple of relevant Super Guide scans I missed the first time around, here and here. Will try to get better scans once I find the box that's got my X-ACTO knife in it.

Scrapped Princess | Canzonetta of the Unforgiven | The SpecOps Combat Technician, Once Again | Part 3/3 )

Wait, wait. I get it now. Chris is a redeemable version of Johan Liebert.

That said, Chris really ought to be wearing a smile, rather than that overtly menacing frown. Oh, well.

Scrapped Princess | Canzonetta of the Unforgiven | The Songstress | Part 2/5 )

One tricky thing is that the narration tends to make these general sort of observations, and they often blend into story-specific ones. Like in this chapter, talk about high roads segues into an explanation of the specific high road that leads to Taurus. I keep going back and forth about whether to keep those bits in present tense (as though Dustvin, Manurhin, Taurus, etc. were real places, or as though magic actually existed) or to switch them to past tense like the rest of the story-specific narration.
