why does Drake's scenario actually sound good
Regarding score threads: For the time being, I'm not going to be online much; I would suggest that you simply do as you normally do, because I will come back and I will want those threads when I do.

Because it provides a way to make Twilight Spark canon, obviously. :V

Because I like to take canon events and rape them into awesome.
If you hadn't noticed I linked it into the Mima=Yuka thing I did months ago.

The first part of it also sounds familiar to a plot I thought of at work a few months ago and considered writing eventually. Hm, maybe I'll get around to it one day.

You know, going along the spectrum of visible light, red -> yellow (blonde) -> green actually makes sense! :B

So... Eventually Marisa/Mima reaches violet and becomes Yukari!  IT ALL MAKES SENSE NOW!

jesus christ

Once the time loop is broken and the disaster averted Marisa stays as a Mima who doesn't hate humans and such
She continues to live on upholding the Hakurei barrier as a side-effect of the Yin-Yang orbs
Reimu dies and even though her children continue the Hakurei lineage, Marisa is given the task of keeping the Hakurei Barrier alive by Yukari, who slowly dies over the course of a long time
Once Yukari is dead, Marisa uses hax powers to manipulate Gensokyo into creating anew
Marisa dons purple and is now Yukari

stop it guys this is scaring me

I am tempted to look in google for similar symbols to fill out the rest of the cast.

The best part about ZUN's books are the prologue and epilogue (if those are the right words). Same with this one.

Interesting thing is, half the people who read that book really can't read the kanji in it. No one knows to read 役小角 as えんのおづぬ. That particular example has furiganas in the passage, but most others don't. Pretty severe Japanese.

I like Koishi's spellcards, because they have to do with mental philosophy.
For looks, I'd say Eirin's Tenmou Chimou Hochou no Hou(天網蜘網捕蝶の法).
お遊びで見せて貰ったスペルカード。
完全に自由を奪う。何処にいても自由が奪われてしまうとは恐ろしい。
実際は動けないだけで難しくはないが、これでお遊びだというから精神的に負けた気分になる。
あれぐらいマスタースパークが沢山出せればいいんだけどな。
Translation:
A spellcard she showed me for leisure.
It completely steals your freedom. To lose movement no matter where you are is quite frightening.
In actuality, it's just that you can't move, so it's not that hard. However, she says this is just for leisure, so it makes you feel like you lost.
If only I could shoot that many Master Sparks.

I'm so bored, I could translate this whole book. But I'm too bored to do that.

There's a reason why Koishi's my favourite character in the entire series.

Ok MANY reasons.

And if you translate this book, my god we'll love you.

Translations.
How much time do you guys think it will take for HM to be translated? Besides everyone's story modes and the whole menus, there's also the fact that the way HM's programmed is different from all other games. I bet it'll take two months.

lusvik: I don't mind about playing HM in japanese. The language of punching other people is international.

There are other willing people who will get this thing translated one day. I don't have to do it, do I? Besides, I'm not perfect at either language. Like I said before, I can't read half the names on this thing. (Though I researched the origins for all of these names, because I was bored.)

If everyone assumes that someone else will do it, nothing gets accomplished. I'm not saying you have to translate this, but it might be a good idea to at least contribute to a translation effort. For example, that research you did could be useful.

I usually regret contributing because I screw up. Sorry.

If there isn't a thread for a translation of this thing, I can make a thread that translates this little by little. Members can ask for certain characters and I could translate on a first-come first-serve basis, or I can just translate this in order whenever I want to.

If someone's already started a translation, whether it be here or a wiki, I won't bother.

Only problem with my doing this is that I'm not going to finish it. lol

Considering that neither of the previous books have been fully translated yet, along with other stuff, Lucarius, I doubt anyone's likely to complain about you getting a head start -- or any help you can give. (Even if your translation is imperfect, others will have an easier time fixing that up than doing their own from scratch, after all.) Don't feel too pressured, of course. ;D

They haven't? I can read the books in English. There's your translation lol. On second thought, I guess writing it out is much more tedious than to just read it, but it can't take that long, can it? I guess no one likes to finish what they start lol. I usually get bored of the process in the first week or so.

I was thinking of getting the book to try and get my stepsister to translate parts for me. She'd probably at least do a little bit, for fun. If she'll do this, I'll put it on the wiki or something. But she's busy this year, too.

Do it here. It'd be grateful if Arcengal would kindly put this on the first post.
