Tales of Link comic: Link Hot Springs Trip

what order am I doing these in? the order with my favorite characters, ofc--

first up is the onsen comic! working on getting a scanlation set up, so some details will probably change a little when that happens. I don't actually know how Meredy and Velvet speak in localization, oops. :D

Tales of Link, main story: 1.01 - With the Sea Breeze, Start

...my short attention span wins again // I was trying to get Hariyama-san done first, but Link is a lot faster and easier, so, uh, here we are.

General project notes:

  • The main character's name is set as Link. There are several characters who note during the story that his default name isn't Allen, so. /shrug
  • For the story segments, I'll only be doing the chapters unreleased in English, the "Starlight Sinking Into the Blue" arc. There are eight chapters in total, and recordings of (almost) all the scenes can be found here. The longer scenes are hosted elsewhere and I'll put together a directory someday.
  • If I ever have the time, I might try to get these on YouTube with closed caption translations, but that'll be a new thing for me and so may take a while.
  • Romanization is a guessing game, as always. The main one is Clariye, the country where this arc is set. The Japanese is [kurarie], so the final e sound is pronounced. Any alternate spellings that preserve the pronunciation are welcome. I also considered Clarié but generally people don't know how to read accents, so...
  • I didn't play Global Link, so if there are any particular terms they used in translation that I miss, please let me know.

Anyway. Let me know if you have any questions or suggestions. otherwise, onward~

Hariyama-san, Center of the World, volume 2: Interlude 2: Invincible Loser

...I don't really have a good excuse for this. 8D;; hopefully the next story will do a better job of keeping my interest.

Hariyama-san, Center of the World, volume 2: The Tragedy of #37564

Sorry for the wait. The follow-up to this is fairly short and should be up in December.

This story draws on the long tradition of tokusatsu and sentai. I'm not really familiar with them, so there are general notes about names, honorifics, and terms at the end.

Genre: Small-Time Combatman

Tales of Link x IDOLiSH7 collab: Search for Idol Candidates!

okay look, two of my games are doing a collab. I had to do it.

general notes: since Tales doesn't use honorifics, I dropped them for this translation. I don't play Global, though, so unfortunately I don't know what Lippy does there instead of appending -sama to everyone's names. it would look a bit silly using full names for speech labels all the time, so I just used given names. there are a couple links thrown in for your edification if you aren't familiar with i7 or Tales of Xillia. uhh I think that's it??
