Honoka Lv. Up 1

A Step at the Start of Experience

+ posted by Transfade as translation on Apr 16, 2010 08:40 | Go to Honoka Lv. Up

-> RTS Page for Honoka Lv. Up 1

Reserved for Pure Scans

If it is to be used in a scanlation, credit the translator as Transfade. Bubbles that have no need to be translated are not included. Bubble sequence is in order from rightmost to leftmost in most cases otherwise just figure out the flow of the speech bubbles. Generally I may interchange SFX sounds with their onomatopoeia to go with the flow. I may also leave certain phrases in Japanese because I can’t think of a suitable English equivalent. This translation has yet to be proofread.

Name Mutter: - Means a person says something outside a bubble
SFX: - Sound Effect
Name: Apple Banana(STYLE) Cucumber – Means a particular word has to be done in a specific style
Name(STYLE): - Means the entire sentence is done in the mentioned style.
(Random) – Means a comment only meant for working purposes.
(TN:) – Means this comment is meant to be included in the typesetted version.
(H) means that there's a heart symbol at that point.
(S)- Musical Note

Honoka: Ah, yeah. Tommorow's...
Yuuka: Really?
Yuuka: Actually, a new game is coming out today so think we could, you know?
Yuuka: You're going buy another one? I got it. I got it. Let's just go home quickly.
Box: What exactly
Box: can I do...

Yuuka: Mfuufuu...

Honoka: Mm...
Yuuka: Heeey... You've been hanging your head in the clouds for a while now. If you've got some kind of trouble, feel free to say it out loud!
Honoka: Ye-yes!?
Yuuka: Reserved! You're being too reseeerved~~ What's wrong? This Yuuka-chan will gladly listen if you tell her about it.
Yuuka mutter: Come on. I'll get you some juice.
Honoka: Um... Mmmm... huh
Honoka mutter: Then I'll have some Calpis Water
(Why does my dictionary say KARUPIS could also mean sperm? Wth?)

Yuuka: Even so it's not like this really matters at this point in time, right? I wrote Seishin Junior College for the time being though.
Honoka: ... is that so...
Yuuka: Ahh...
Small text: I see
Yuuka: Come oooon. You're overthinking things here Honoka. Seriously overthinking it.
Yuuka: It's enough to just write something suitable on that piece of paper.
Yuuka: It's not like everything's going to be decided by this. Just take it easy.
Yuuka: Got it?
Honoka: Mm... I see. You're right.
Honoka: That's true

Box: Ecchi/Lech/Pervert... I've been babysitting you since you were a kid you know.
Ryuuichi: Have I mentioned that I've even change your diapers?
Honoka: Old stuff like that should never ever be brought up...
Ryuuichi: Hey
Ryuuichi: This isn't really something you should be so embarassed about you know.
Ryuuichi: It's actually pretty good.
Honoka: Huh
Honoka: Re-really?
Ryuuichi: Just pass that over here for a bit

Page 16
Honoka: It's nothing... I've just been sketching as a hobby...
Ryuuichi: Becoming a picture book auhtor... didn't you mention it before?
Honoka: I wasn't being serious about that though.
Ryuuichi: Didn't you say it just recently?
Honoka: That was back in elementary school... a really long time ago.
Ryuuichi: But your infatuation with scribbles was still around yesterday wasn't it?
(Maybe it's some kind of phrase they use in japan but that's what I can figure from it)
Honoka: Like I said...
Honoka: This is just a hobby
Honoka: To be able to do it for a carreer is...

Page 17
Ryuuichi: Right. Gas refill complete.
Ryuuichi: Honoka, could you make me some coffee please.
Honoka: Ah okay. ...Hmm?
