Shining Force Manga Translations

Postby TheUnknownMarine » Thu Jul 29 2010 7:33am

Our very own O'Neil has been so kind as to translate the crappy scans I sent him of the SF Manga. I'm posting it here for those that also have the manga, or are just curious to get a taste of how wacky it gets. If anyone has access to the manga and has a better scanner than I do, it'd be higher appreciated if you can produce high definition scans. As you can see below, mine resulted in many unintelligible sections.

So without further ado...


-------
Either way, here's what I have so far. I matched the page numbers as
best I could to the official pagination, but it seems a little off.
According to the table of contents, Chapter 1 should start at 7, but
counting back from 14 (the first time we get pagination), it ends up
as 9. I dunno. Anything I had to guess on is enclosed in +plus marks+,
and +...+ denotes parts I had to skip entirely. Notes are in
parentheses.

Shining Force
~Advent of the Gods~

Tanuma Yuuichirou (He's probably best known as a hentai artist. XD)
Story Planner: Mutou Masahiro (This guy, I can't find anything on,
aside from this manga. Googling brings up credits for Zero Woman, but
I think that may be someone else with the same name. Not sure,
though.)

p.09
====

Panel 2, Bubble 1: How is it?
Panel 2, Bubble 2: Ahh, no good.

Panel 3, Bubble 1: Weird, huh? It ain't like +we drifted off-course+.
Let's try one more time.
Panel 3, Bubble 2: Man, I'd even be willing to +haul in+ the fish we
usually throw back.

Panel 4, Bubble 1: I mean, the festival for the fifth anniversary of
Anri-sama's coronation starts tomorrow morning.
Panel 4, Bubble 2: If we don't pull in even a little something, we
won't get to +...+

====
p.10
====

Panel 3: Hey . . . ? Did you hear something just now?

Panel 4: What's wrong?!

Panel 5, Bubble 1: Ah . . .
Panel 5, Bubble 2: Ju . . . just now, the ocean--!

Panel 6: The ocean . . . ?

====
p.11
====

Panel 2, Bubble 1: He . . . hey?! Let's hurry up and pull the net in!!
Panel 2, Bubble 2: Ye--yeah . . . Come to think of it, this place is . . .

Panel 5, Bubble 1: Hm. As you'd expect, an elaborate seal has been cast.

====
p.12
====

Panel 1, Bubble 1: Oh? That'll be impossible even for Gin Mei.
Panel 1, Bubble 2: It seems our month-long journey has taken quite a toll.

Panel 2, Bubble 1: Quiet, Kon Gai. If only we had the time, it
wouldn't be impossible.
Panel 2, Bubble 2: Besides, it would cost us in the long run if I
alone were to be worn out. I'll let you two assist me.

Panel 3, Bubble 1: Save the idle chatter for later. We don't have time for that.
Panel 3, Bubble 2: Ah. Sorry, Ju Mah.

Panel 4: Ah . . . ?!

====
p.13
====

Panel 1, Bubble 1: Before that . . . that wooden leaf floating on the
surface of the water is in the way.
Panel 1, Bubble 2: Yes. We don't want to be found out just yet.

Panel 2, Bubble 1: He . . . hey!
Panel 2, Bubble 2: Hu--hurry up and get the boat . . .

Panel 3, Bubble 1: Ha--have mer . . . !!

Panel 4: A vast continent ruled by swords and spells. Rune . . . Our
story begins off the coast of Tenev Bay, in Guardiana. A story of the
battle between light and darkness . . .

====
p.14
====

Panel 3: Budge!

Panel 5: Buuuudge!!

Panel 6: If we don't hurry up and go, we're gonna get yelled at by
Commander Luke again!!

====
p.15
====

Panel 1: All right!! (Not yelling back, but talking to himself.)

Panel 2: Preparations complete!!

Panel 3: Whoops!! (This is a tricky phrasing to translate. It's
something you say when pulling yourself up short because you forgot
something.)

Panel 4, Bubble 1: Father . . .
Panel 4, Bubble 2: Today I shall once again carry out my duties to the
best of my ability!!

Panel 5: Here we go!!

Panel 7, Bubble 1: I'm going on ahead!!
Panel 7, Bubble 2: Eh?

====
p.16
====

Panel 1, Bubble 1: Heheh~♥
Panel 1, Bubble 2: Sean, move your ass, we're cutting it close!!
Panel 1, Bubble 3: Wait up, Budge!!

Panel 2, Bubble 1: Ah, sorry.
Panel 2, Bubble 2: Ah, excuse me.

Panel 3: Bu~udge.

Panel 4: Hey, now!! I said move your ass. I'll leave you behind--

====
p.17
====

Panel 1: Buh?!

Panel 2: Budge?

Panel 3: HEEEEEY!! Watch where you're goin--

Panel 5, Bubble 1: Sa . . . SA . . .
Panel 5, Bubble 2: Sa--samurai!!

====
p.18
====

Panel 1: Brat!!

Panel 2, Bubble 1: So--
Panel 2, Bubble 2: Sorry!! (He's shoving Budge's head down to make him bow.)
Panel 2, Bubble 3: Wah?

Panel 3, Bubble 1: The--The hell are you doing?! That hurts!!
Panel 3, Bubble 2: Idiot!! Don't you know? If you piss off a samurai,
he'll cut your head off without wasting his breath arguing!!

Panel 4, Bubble 1: Wha~at?!
Panel 4, Bubble 2: What do we do?! Hey, what do we do?!

Panel 5, Bubble 1: We are truly sorry!!
Panel 5, Bubble 2: Pfft . . .

Panel 6: WAHAHAHAHAHAHA . . .

====
P.19
====

Panel 1, Bubble 1: Ah, sorry, sorry!!
Panel 1, Bubble 2: At any rate, there's been a huge misunderstanding.

Panel 2: I can't say I'm that sort of full-fledged samurai.
(Sean says something here, but I can't make it out.)

Panel 3: More importantly . . . this works out perfectly.

Panel 4, Bubble 1: Could I get you to show me around for a bit?
Panel 4, Bubble 2: You look like you've got ties to the castle, little
swordsman!!

Panel 5: Huh?

====
p.21
====

Panel 1, Bubble 1: What's the matter, Selena? You seem to be out of
temper about something.
Panel 1, Bubble 2: Ah . . .
Panel 1, Bubble 3: Father . . . No, not particularly . . .

Panel 2: Don't lie. Now, +tell me all about it+.

Panel 3, Bubble 1: You're thinking about your betrothal to Alterone's
prince, Hauser-dono, aren't you?
Panel 3, Bubble 2: . . . yes.

Panel 4, Bubble 1: I hear that he possesses a brilliant mind and
excels in both the literary and military arts, and he is dearly loved
by the people of Alterone. +...+, but all the same, I don't think that
sounds so bad.
Panel 4, Bubble 2: Yes, I know . . . but whatever I do, I can't bring
myself to like that man.

Panel 5: There's something . . . about that man that frightens me.


Edit: When more is done, I'm going to go through and add descriptions so those without can know what the heck is going on.

Edit 2:> Uhhhhhhh, on Page 21, Selena doesn't say "Father"--she says "Elder
> Sister." This is what I get for watching something while translating.
> XD; So yeah, Selena is Anri's little sister.

Awesome work. I look forward to reading this. :thumbsup:

EDIT: Damn it, I thought I had the scans somewhere, but apparently not. :damnit:

Panel 1: . . . that's how it is. At least, that's how I heard it.

Panel 2: Hmmmm . . .

Panel 3, Bubble 1: Don't you "Hmmmm" me.
Panel 3, Bubble 2: Wh--what the hell?

Panel 4, Bubble 1: I know all about it, Budge-kun.
Panel 4, Bubble 2: You bought a bromide
[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bromide_(Japanese_culture)] in town a
while ago, didn't you? Of our princess, that is.

Panel 5, Bubble 1: Ah, no . . . That was, I mean . . .
Panel 5, Bubble 2: Noooooo, I understand!! I completely understand
your pain. It's only natural that +our hearts have been stolen away by
the princess+.

Panel 7, Bubble 1: What the hell are you little bastards doing?!
Panel 7, Bubble 2: Get your acts together!!

Panel 8, Bubble 1: Owwwww . . .
Panel 8, Bubble 2: Commander Luke really went all out.

====
p.23
====

Panel 2: *giggle*

Panel 3: *heartthrob*

Panel 4, Bubble 1: Pl--Please wait! Someone--Someone please stop that man--
Panel 4, Bubble 2: What's going on?

Panel 4, Bubble 1: Ah, so you two are here as well!!
Panel 4, Bubble 2: I'm truly grateful for your help earlier!!

Panel 5, Bubble 1: Ah! You're the samurai from this morning!
Panel 5, Handwritten Dialog: Oh, they're really going at it.
Panel 5, Bubble 2: This isn't good! Coming all the way here . . . The
only people allowed past the castle gates and into the courtyard are
+...+. (I can't make this out at all, but it's probably along the
lines of authorized personnel.)

====
p.24
====

Panel 1, Bubble 1: Man, you don't know the first thing about etiquette.
Panel 1, Bubble 2: Are you sure you're a samurai?
Panel 1, Bubble 3: It's been quite a long time, Musashi . . . but
thank you for coming.

Panel 2, Bubble 1: Oh, Anri-dono!! You've become quite the beauty!!
Panel 2, Bubble 2: Ehhhh?!
Panel 2, Bubble 3: Th--This old guy is THE Musashi?!

Panel 4, Bubble 1: . . . but, Musashi, your coming here to our country
can't have been +by chance+, can it?
Panel 4, Bubble 2: Did you have some reason you felt you had to come, or . . . ?

Panel 5, Bubble 1: Well . . . there is that, but . . .
Panel 5, Bubble 2: And now the final match of the tournament will begin!!

====
p.25
====

Panel 1: The Warrior Hort, of Guardiana's +Royal Warrior Corps
(there's more to this, but I can't make it out)+!!

Panel 2: Versus . . .

Panel 3, Bubble 1: His Highness, Calnus Von De Hauser, Prince of the
+Kingdom of+ Alterone.
Panel 3, Bubble 2: However, by order of Her Majesty The Queen, social
status has no bearing on one's ranking in this tournament.

Panel 4, Bubble 1: Hmph!!
Panel 4, Bubble 2: That prince looks skilled, but he gives me a bad
feeling . . .
Panel 4, Bubble 3: Musashi?

Panel 5: Begin!!

Panel 6: Heh . . .

====
p.26
====

Panel 3: Huh . . . ?!

Panel 4: UWAAH--?!

====
p.27
====

Panel 5: That was brutal . . . !!

Panel 6, Bubble 1: Hort . . . ?
Panel 6, Bubble 2: Co . . . Commander Luke . . .
Panel 6, (Thought) Bubble 3: His clavicle's been shattered!!

Panel 7, Bubble 1: Th--The +championship+ goes to His Highness,
Hauser, Prince of Alterone!!
Panel 7, Bubble 2: Hmph . . .

Panel 8, Bubble 1: A moment please, Your Highness!!
Panel 8, Bubble 1: Someone possessing Your Highness's +skill with a
sword+ should already have known +...+!!

Panel 9, Bubble 1: Even if, for example, your opponent drops his blade
during a match--
Panel 9, Bubble 2: Sorry . . . He came after me far too seriously, so
I mistakenly allowed myself to become serious too. Forgive me . . .

Panel 10, (Thought) Bubble 1: Hmph . . . !!
Panel 10, (Thought) Bubble 2: A low-born warrior +...+, raising your
blade against ME--You got what you deserved.

====
p.28
====

Panel 1, Bubble 1: . . . your skill is quite admirable, Hauser-dono.
Panel 1, Bubble 2: Not at all, I'm still just a novice.
Panel 1, Bubble 3: Well then, your reward--

Panel 2: I don't like it.

Panel 3, Bubble 1: Musashi--!!
Panel 3, Bubble 2: Yeah, I just don't like it.

Panel 4, Bubble 1: You there, you aren't a citizen of this country, are you?
Panel 4, Bubble 2: Looking at you, I would presume you to be the
celebrated samurai of the East, Musashi-dono.
Panel 4, Bubble 3: You got it. I'm that Musashi.

Panel 7, Bubble 1: It appears there are personages here who find my
presence displeasing, so I'll excuse myself from +the awards
ceremony+. In return, may I make one trifling +request+?
Panel 7, Bubble 2: Oh, honestly, Musashi!
Panel 7, Bubble 3: P--Please . . . You needn't hold back. Won't you
please tell us?

Panel 8, Bubble 1: Well, then!! Will you grant me an official date
Panel 8, Bubble 2: with Your Majesty's younger sister, +to whom I am engaged+?

====
p.29
====

Panel 1, (Thought) Bubble 1: +Whoa+! I was careless. So that's what he
was up to!!
Panel 1, (Thought) Bubble 2: If she refuses, it will be a grave insult
to the prince.

Panel 2, (Thought) Bubble 1: Not only Anri-dono but all of Guardiana
will have its reputation tarnished!!
Panel 2, (Thought) Bubble 2: Hauser, just what are you scheming?!

Panel 3, Bubble 1: . . . very well.
Panel 3, Bubble 2: Pr--Princess Selena?!

Panel 4, Bubble 1: However, I can't feel at ease with just the level
of martial prowess you showed.
Panel 4, Bubble 2: I'm worried that you won't be able to protect me
while we're on our date!!
Panel 4, Bubble 3: Therefore, if you are able to fight and win against
one of my attendants, then I will consider your request!!

Panel 5, Bubble 1: Heh . . .
Panel 5, Bubble 2: Splendid!! And just who is this attendant?
