For those who haven't gone into the Share Your Voice Thread, I tossed around an idea to do a TM audio play. To my surprise, there actually seemed to be some interest. Eventually it was decided to start with Tsukihime. So far, the people interested in doing a voice are as follows:

* Me
* dakidukno
* Five_X
* I3uster
* Spinach
* Dantalion (possible, but thinks his English is bad)
* mewarmo990
* Brynhilde (asked for Akiha)
* EXiku
* DarkMAN (possible)
* Tusia
* Ivan The Mouse
* KENTA (Changed his mind)

I3uster had an idea for casting which I though was good:
As for the "casting", we could make everyone record a sample line of the character they want to voice, and then make a public poll in the poll section with the samples.
Would ensure a fair casting and we would most likely end up with the best fits for the respective characters.Anyone else agree?

Next on the list (as far as I can tell) is deciding what route to go with. I have no preference myself, so I set up a poll.

For anyone who wants to look over the various routes and lines character's have, here's a link to the Tsukihime Let's Play (http://lparchive.org/Tsukihime/).


80%




Shiki:

Casual:
"Really? Well, my family is a strict one, so I'm used to these kinds of things. More importantly, Senpai, didn't you have something you wanted to talk to me about?"

Nanaya:
"So you want to kill me, monster? Fine. Let’s fight to the death, Nrvnqsr Chaos"

Fighting:
"...... You don't know of the illusion that the whole world could perish in an instant.
----That is what it means to see death.
These eyes, this power isn't something you can boast about like you did."

Talking to Arihiko:
"Why are you only mean to me, Tohno? You're like a saint to everyone else. It's not fair."
"What, you just figured that out? Life's not fair."

Comforting Ciel:
“So I want you to live. Please...... please don't say your wish is to die.”

Roa:
Calm:
"What's this? How mean of you, Shiki.
You've been looking for me for so long and when I come out, you don't remember me?"

Going crazy:
"Man, there never was a pleasure greater than that time!
Piercing your chest with this hand and feeling your heart as you coughed up blood. I thought I was born again!
It felt so wonderful, I stood there wanting to play with your dying body even longer, but I was pushing my luck.
While I was eagerly trying to rip out your heart, someone informed the old man.
That bastard, he rushed over and killed me! Me, his real son! Shit. I guess cruel fathers do exist. A father like that can't complain when he's killed by his own son, right, Shiki!?
Well in the end--I felt pretty good."

Batshit:
"Don't be silent......! You're me. I am SHIKI, and you are Shiki.
We are the same type of being. It doesn't matter if that bastard Roa existed or not.
...... I was originally a creature eating human flesh. As a child, I had this urge to eat human flesh. Even though that has changed to drinking blood, if Roa hadn't entered my body, I would've certainly become a human eating monster."

Nero:

Calm:
"Your familiar? But, how unfortunate. Those who enter my domain will be recognized and attacked by one of us even if I do not notice. There can be no surprise attacks against me."

Angry:
"This body is immortal.
I have surpassed death long ago----!"

SHIKI (calm): http://soundcloud.com/careph/shiki1

SHIKI (going crazy): http://soundcloud.com/careph/shiki2

SHIKI (batshit insane): http://soundcloud.com/careph/shiki3

I tried to voice SHIKI with a little higher pitch and lots of playfulness (madness is merry), my Roa would be a little deeper and more arrogant.

A few samples:

Roa (about to fight against Arcueid): http://soundcloud.com/careph/roa2

Roa (rambling away about his superiority): http://soundcloud.com/careph/roa1

I found this long part particularly hard to voice. This is probably my weakest recording, and it shows my limits.

Roa (suggesting an alliance with Shiki): http://soundcloud.com/careph/roa3

Roa (about to fight against Shiki): http://soundcloud.com/careph/roa4-eyes


Arcueid:
Casual:
"I guess I can finally introduce myself now.
I'm Arcueid---hmm... my last name is really long, so just Arcueid is fine for now.“
Combat:
"For someone like you---these claws will be enough, Nrvnqsr Chaos"
Bloodlust:
“Shi---ki”
Sad:
"Doesn't it go without saying? It's just that I'm a vampire and you're a human, Shiki. I didn't have any right to recieve help from you."

Ciel:
Casual:
"Yes, that's it. I managed to wake up before seven this morning and...... wait a minute, what are you making me say, Tohno-kun!?"
Sad:
"...... Tohno-kun, you're an idiot.
I, I'm not the person you think I am, so how can you be so nice?"
Executor:
"That's why---when SHIKI's body was destroyed, Roa didn't need to reincarnate. He still had a place to run to: you."


Hisui:
Formal:
"Your uniform is folded and awaits you over there. Please come to the sitting room after you have changed"
Embarrassed:
"...I am not used to being touched. Please forgive me."


Akiha:
Tsun:
"Please, don't be ridiculous, I can hardly look any more leniently upon Nii-san's manners than I do already."
“Dizzy”:
"Akiha, you're really acting strangely. You should lie down."
"---No, it's alright. It's not as bad as yours, but I get easily dizzy too. ...... I was just thinking about the accident eight years ago. Your wound was so deep, and there was so much blood coming out of it---that's why I felt so bad."
Explaining:
"Yes, you only feel that way towards abnormal people like me and SHIKI.
But, that's why you were like death to us.
...... Even though the people of Nanaya have stopped their work, I think it was still a threat just to have their blood around."
Dere:
"Nii-san---you're my only Nii-san......! I've watched you since I was just a little girl......!"
Crazy:
"It's over, Nii-san. Isn't it going to be fun? You're going to be killed by me without leaving a trace---!"


Kohaku:
Cheerful:
“Hehehehe… Akiha-sama, you are really strict with Shiki-sany, are you not?"
Sad:
"Akiha-sama knows this.
She knows that sucking blood is making her less human, but she doesn't stop.
...... She's only doing it to keep you alive. So---even though she knows it's transforming her into a blood sucking demon, she continues it for your sake."
Angry:
"No, you do not understand anything! You don't know how much Akiha-sama was looking forward to this while waiting for you up until now."
“Doll”:
"No, not at all. If I think it doesn't hurt, then it won't hurt. If I think this isn't my finger, and that it's just the finger of some doll, then I won't feel pain, right?"

Cookie Monster voice for Shiki? CAN I EDIT HIS LINES OH PRETTY PLEASE

But yes I would like to try Shiki. Gimme lines to sample!
If not then Arihiko. Who definitely gets the Cookie Monster treatment.

Are we voicing narration? That's usually not a thing.

Also, if we do voice narration it has some nice "THIS CHAIR!" action.

Ciel route, it's like Arc route, but better!

Also, if we do voice narration it has some nice "THIS CHAIR!" action.
This raises an interesting question: how will this be done? Will it literally be folks reading the text aloud from the game? Or - more likely - will it be like a radio play.

For some good examples of how to do this, look at JesuOtaku's Fruit's Basket (http://thatguywiththeglasses.com/videolinks/ir/jo/fruits-basket-radio-drama) radio plays. Great stuff, well directed and acted.

What type of time commitment will this require? I'd be half tempted to voice someone, but I'm not really able to commit to something after mid January (LOL, Grad School!)


i voted for the Ciel rote, as I found myself having an inordinate liking for the character, despite the routes flawed writing. I'd imagine the THIS CHAIR scene would be perfectly hammy for our actors to chew on, as would Arcueid going full True Ancestor.

Any ideas for who'll run Roa?

Spinach
December 14th, 2011, 01:20 PM
Truthfully, I don't want to be cast if this becomes a commitment of sorts. I was just thinking we'd choose some fun scenes and play around with it. Not fandub the whole route.

I was thinking, whoever's casted can record their lines at their own pace, and once they're finished they can send them to me and I can edit everything together. I'll accept any other ideas, though.

Also, here's a link to the Tsukihime Let's Play (http://lparchive.org/Tsukihime/) for anyone who needs it. I'll also put this up in the first post.

O ye gods, voicing Shiki would be hilarious. I wonder what voice he could get... I can do a good "nerd" voice.

Yeah, selected scenes sounds like a fun idea but I wouldn't want to sit around and listen to an entire route lol.

I3uster
December 14th, 2011, 01:44 PM
As for sample lines, anyone got suggestions?
Everyone should record the same set of lines, so that side-by-side comparison is easier.

So, for Shiki, the whole "let me show you what it means"-speech, some Arihiko interaction, some Akiha teasing and some crying Ciel comforting I'd say. That would be a decent range.

Wow color me surprised, the poll's results threw me off-guard. I probably have an accent, but my English is decent. I can do a female role, though I guess I should probably check the Voice Thread first. Time to broaden my horizons on BL instead of always hermiting in the Fate/Extra and select fanclub threads...

December 14th, 2011, 04:09 PM
I actually prefer Akiha route even if Ciel is probably my favorite TYPE-MOON character...

That said I'm liking the idea of voicing selected scenes more, it opens up more variety too. Some people are better with a certain kind of dramatic tone, and everyone could give a go to voice their favorite scenes? I know I'd love to hear this scene (http://lparchive.org/Tsukihime/Update%2051/) voice acted (heck I'm half wondering if I can pull it off. I can speak French fluently despite my Chinese accent). CTRL+F to "I raise my head".

On Akiha route I'd love to hear the part when Shiki comes home and Akiha just tends to his wounds instead of forcing him to tell her what happened for him to get wounded. Or when Hisui begs for Shiki to get out of his room in her route... There's a lot of good material, please disregard the fact that I seem to be singling all the sad/bittersweet scenes out. Just choosing one route would be limiting, IMO.

KENTA
December 14th, 2011, 04:10 PM
I'm not, I merely reposted it. Creative is the real creator. And I'm a huge Ciel mark, but I like Akiha's route more. Has SHIKI and lacks Arc.

I3uster
December 14th, 2011, 04:30 PM
My favorite route is Hisui, but it isn't as fun to voice I'd imagine.
Except if we get a perfect Kohaku. Then it's going to be a nightmare.

Kurai D
December 14th, 2011, 04:34 PM
Think of how plastic Ciel's voice will be if someone has to do the scene right before she fights Shiki! Also her own narration of her backstory is just going to be downright depressing.

Can I vote for the Tohno Family Con Game in KT, I think everyone would win there.

I agree that voicing a whole route right of the start might be too much. So selected scenes or maybe those shorter stories form KT?

The plan of actions should be like this:
1. We decide what we are voicing.
2. Make a list of characters and some of their lines.
3. People send recordings of those lines.
4. We decide from those samples who voices who.

Is what I suggest.

Lines I'll be using for Nrvnqsr when I get back from doing shit

"Feed"


"Of course. His ideals differ from ours. He is a vampire, but he does not hold to the meaning of being a vampire. Consequently, we do not accept him as one of us."


"----But, we are old friends. I believe I understand him more than the other Dead Apostles."


"Wrong. Heresy is isolated, therefore it is heresy. Just because we are both seperated from the flock doesn't mean we comprehend one another."


"Do not be ridiculous. You are the capricious one. Your purpose is to execute the Dea Apostles, so why do you persistantly pursue the serpant of Akasha. The Serpent's poison is not something the Princess of teh True Ancestors should be persistant about"

Sorry, I got a little side-tracked. Anyway, I'm now caught up. There are a lot of good voices here. I'm somewhat impressed, actually. I'm actually going to record a few things myself now, but I like what I've heard so far.

While I was driving to work earlier a thought occurred to me. Now, I know this is thinking waaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyy ahead (and probably not all that likely we'll actually get far enough, but who knows) but I'm curious if it would be possible to patch in our voices into the game? Even if we only end up doing select scenes. Like I said, thinking ahead. But I figure it doesn't hurt to ask.

mewarmo990
December 15th, 2011, 01:53 AM
The ease of integrating voices into the actual game will depend on the engine. As I recall the doujin circle used a free game engine to make Tsukihime.
I don't even remember there being sound effects in Tsukihime so I doubt it will have that capability built-in.

Though that could just be my bad memory.

Dantalion
December 15th, 2011, 01:56 AM
If the game engine doesn't allow integrating voices into it, I think a hard way could be to manually play the voices as BGM. But... Still need to get the engine to read like a few hundred BGM files for all the different scenes.

Spooky
December 15th, 2011, 02:11 AM
Alright, I recorded a couple things. First of all, Shiki.


I know I'd love to hear this scene (http://lparchive.org/Tsukihime/Update%2051/) voice acted (heck I'm half wondering if I can pull it off. I can speak French fluently despite my Chinese accent). CTRL+F to "I raise my head".

I did the start of this scene, until they get to Ciel's room. (http://tindeck.com/listen/uswk)


If it's going to be Akiha after all, every Shiki candidate must record this immortal line:
"Akiha......? You don't want to do it with your brother after all?"
Yeah, that's right. I did this line. (http://tindeck.com/listen/vgvh)

Aside from Shiki, I also recorded Nrvnqsr's intro scene. (http://tindeck.com/listen/qxgl) I tried to go deeper then normal, but I'm not sure I succeeded all that well. Meh.

I'll probably do some more later on. Any other requests for lines? I think it was DarkMAN who suggested having everyone who wanted a part read the same lines, what do you all think of that? And if we do that, what casting lines should we use?

It might or might not have influence on the final vote, but they should.

Just saying.
I was quite fond of my Satsuki to be honest...and I tried to make Akiha sound as stiff/curt as possible. Ciel, I probably dropped in quality because I kept redoing her lines without realising my phone wasn't recording :/

I'm going to go through the Let's Play and see if I can find a suitable bunch of 3-4 lines/passages (we should go for a range here) to suggest as staple 'Audition Lines'...and then I'll re-record, but if anyone else can find a good few...

As for how to do this...Should each participant create separate polls with their clips for each character and then anyone who has popular votes for the same character should have a poll between the two?

Or is that too insane?

Also...I can't help but feel things are getting pretty serious around here hehe...

I3uster
December 15th, 2011, 07:59 AM
Nah, we should create a poll for each character, not participant.

But before that we have to agree on the respective lines.

A minor issue, but I thought I'd bring it up. Are bit characters going to be doubled, or will there be separate people for them?
Some people will probably want to play Arihiko exclusively, and I seem to remember at least two characters (Arima Keiko, Shiki's foster mother, and Shiki's teacher) say a couple of lines at some point.

It'll be better to pick 2/3 lines of every character we need, guys get guys, girls - girls

Bloble
December 15th, 2011, 11:58 AM
I agree with everyone saying the same lines. This way the only variable will be the the voices of the people themselves, and the lines will have no effect. I also agree with having different moods for each character like Cold Killer Shiki and Ordinary High School Student Shiki.

Instead of parroting the Visual Novels, why not, y'know, ADAPT the scripts to be more in line with a radio play?

It's not as if the accompanying narration in the text really sounds natural when read aloud. Why not adapt a few key scenes into a brief segment from a radio play, and then have the actors try out different lines.

If we do adapt the Vn into radio play, I'd suggest we try and make Shiki a narrator, since a lot of the Ciel route's most engaging moments come from his subjective experiences getting all warped to hell and back. (The unsettling: "Wait...was there ever really a journal to begin with?" Or, the classic: "This chair is an eyesore.") Having him narrate his expereinces, and then have the other characters speak back to him would be the best method of attack.


I also think we should come up with some test lines for different moods for everyone to try out. It's just more organized that way. (and also closer to how professionals choose parts.)

YES. Do this. Try this out and then assign the actors to different roles.


For some old radio plays, try some of these (http://davidszondy.com/Radio.htm). They'll give a general idea of how to go about doing stuff like this.

I3uster

I3uster
December 15th, 2011, 03:19 PM
So, these are the lines I picked. Any suggestions for more or different ones?
Roas lines are longer than the rest, because he loves to ramble.

Shiki:

Casual:
"Really? Well, my family is a strict one, so I'm used to these kinds of things. More importantly, Senpai, didn't you have something you wanted to talk to me about?"

Nanaya:
"So you want to kill me, monster? Fine. Let’s fight to the death, Nrvnqsr Chaos"

Fighting:
"...... You don't know of the illusion that the whole world could perish in an instant.
----That is what it means to see death.
These eyes, this power isn't something you can boast about like you did."

Talking to Arihiko:
"Why are you only mean to me, Tohno? You're like a saint to everyone else. It's not fair."
"What, you just figured that out? Life's not fair."

Comforting Ciel:
“So I want you to live. Please...... please don't say your wish is to die.”

Roa:
Calm:
"What's this? How mean of you, Shiki.
You've been looking for me for so long and when I come out, you don't remember me?"

Going crazy:
"Man, there never was a pleasure greater than that time!
Piercing your chest with this hand and feeling your heart as you coughed up blood. I thought I was born again!
It felt so wonderful, I stood there wanting to play with your dying body even longer, but I was pushing my luck.
While I was eagerly trying to rip out your heart, someone informed the old man.
That bastard, he rushed over and killed me! Me, his real son! Shit. I guess cruel fathers do exist. A father like that can't complain when he's killed by his own son, right, Shiki!?
Well in the end--I felt pretty good."

Batshit:
"Don't be silent......! You're me. I am SHIKI, and you are Shiki.
We are the same type of being. It doesn't matter if that bastard Roa existed or not.
...... I was originally a creature eating human flesh. As a child, I had this urge to eat human flesh. Even though that has changed to drinking blood, if Roa hadn't entered my body, I would've certainly become a human eating monster."

Nero:

Calm:
"Your familiar? But, how unfortunate. Those who enter my domain will be recognized and attacked by one of us even if I do not notice. There can be no surprise attacks against me."

Angry:
"This body is immortal.
I have surpassed death long ago----!"

Alright, here are the 5 heroines.
As before, open to suggestions. Especially concerning Hisui and Ciel, since I kinda could not come up with anything more significant than those:

Arcueid:
Casual:
"I guess I can finally introduce myself now.
I'm Arcueid---hmm... my last name is really long, so just Arcueid is fine for now.“
Combat:
"For someone like you---these claws will be enough, Nrvnqsr Chaos"
Bloodlust:
“Shi---ki”
Sad:
"Doesn't it go without saying? It's just that I'm a vampire and you're a human, Shiki. I didn't have any right to recieve help from you."

Ciel:
Casual:
"Yes, that's it. I managed to wake up before seven this morning and...... wait a minute, what are you making me say, Tohno-kun!?"
Sad:
"...... Tohno-kun, you're an idiot.
I, I'm not the person you think I am, so how can you be so nice?"
Executor:
"That's why---when SHIKI's body was destroyed, Roa didn't need to reincarnate. He still had a place to run to: you."


Hisui:
Formal:
"Your uniform is folded and awaits you over there. Please come to the sitting room after you have changed"
Embarrassed:
"...I am not used to being touched. Please forgive me."


Akiha:
Tsun:
"Please, don't be ridiculous, I can hardly look any more leniently upon Nii-san's manners than I do already."
“Dizzy”:
"Akiha, you're really acting strangely. You should lie down."
"---No, it's alright. It's not as bad as yours, but I get easily dizzy too. ...... I was just thinking about the accident eight years ago. Your wound was so deep, and there was so much blood coming out of it---that's why I felt so bad."
Explaining:
"Yes, you only feel that way towards abnormal people like me and SHIKI.
But, that's why you were like death to us.
...... Even though the people of Nanaya have stopped their work, I think it was still a threat just to have their blood around."
Dere:
"Nii-san---you're my only Nii-san......! I've watched you since I was just a little girl......!"
Crazy:
"It's over, Nii-san. Isn't it going to be fun? You're going to be killed by me without leaving a trace---!"


Kohaku:
Cheerful:
“Hehehehe… Akiha-sama, you are really strict with Shiki-sany, are you not?"
Sad:
"Akiha-sama knows this.
She knows that sucking blood is making her less human, but she doesn't stop.
...... She's only doing it to keep you alive. So---even though she knows it's transforming her into a blood sucking demon, she continues it for your sake."
Angry:
"No, you do not understand anything! You don't know how much Akiha-sama was looking forward to this while waiting for you up until now."
“Doll”:
"No, not at all. If I think it doesn't hurt, then it won't hurt. If I think this isn't my finger, and that it's just the finger of some doll, then I won't feel pain, right?"

Kurai D
December 15th, 2011, 06:27 PM
Bwuh I probably sound the same in every case, but I tried. Might do Akiha later, I need to head out soon, but I don't think I can pull Hisui.

Bloble your Nero is awesome and I think you fit him REALLY well, but you need a bit more energy in the angry one. Remember, that was the moment where he went 999th Beast Modo and got totally furious.
For Shiki, your voice is a bit too deep, yeah.
And your Roa is awesome too, though I like your Nero more.

In the end it's up to the voters.

Thanks. And I tried the angry Nero one 3 or 4 times, but I couldn't actually yell because it would overload my microphone. I was whispering the entire time. Y'know what, I'll try that one a few more times:

Lots of great voices in this thread! I love checking back after a few days and

I agree, Lianru does a good Akiha. As for Ciel... well, you're gonna have to fight to the death for that role!

EXiku, I think your second version of Arcueid trying to suppress her bloodlust was spot on.

Although, from a language standpoint, hearing "Nii-san" in English is really irritating me, it's totally unnecessary.

I've been thinking about that too, but wasn't sure about bringing up the subject of keeping honorifics and -ism's ('Nii-san', which could simply be rendered 'Brother') like that.

Personally, stuff like that grates my nerves to the point where I instantly drop English-language fanfiction at the first instance of random Japanese...I understand what the words mean, but I hate seeing it. And since these were just audition lines...I rolled with it...

How do you think this should be addressed? Or is it something to be left as is...since catering to one preference will be irritating another :/

And as for the Nii-san, I mean, we're already going Tohno-kun and Senpai and Shiki-sama so why not just keep the Nii-san? I don't really care either way, though.

How do you think this should be addressed? Or is it something to be left as is...since catering to one preference will be irritating another :/
It's something I have to deal with a lot. I work in commercial video game translation so it's a common discussion between translators (usually native Japanese speakers) and editors (professional writers) on how best to convey that meaning without throwing in foreign words that would be out of place.

Generally, you have to be sensible about it, and be aware of the source and target audience's cultures.

In East Asian culture, filial piety (respect for elders) is an ingrained concept down to the language. So where English siblings would just address each other by their first names regardless of station, younger siblings in Japan say "nii-san" or "nee-san" because it's a title. Granted, the intent is not necessarily formal, but it's just a result of many centuries of that influence. Of course in Akiha's case, she's somewhat of an aristocrat so it would make sense for her to address Shiki as "Brother." Just like you might read in some novels with well-off families.

But this Akiha line from the old Tsuki translation, for instance, could be easily fixed with some common sense.


"Nii-san---you're my only Nii-san......! I've watched you since I was just a little girl......!"
Look at that. That's just lazy.


"Shiki... you're my only brother! I've watched you since I was just a little girl!"
None of the intent was lost, yet obviously we don't need to throw in random Japanese words to satisfy some ignorant weeaboos.

------

Yet, there are always instances when things just get lost in translation.

"Senpai" is a good example. It literally means "upperclassman/senior" but is a form of address with student or working relationships of different seniority. There is no direct equivalent in English, so I can understand when it gets left in even if it's ugly. Sometimes we try to solve this with familiar nicknames or forms of address.

For example, in a certain recent game release, Toby hangs out with Johnny, who he really looks up to. In the Japanese version, he always calls him Senpai. But in a localization, we can't have that, especially because the game has a Western setting and characters. In the end, we went with "Chief", since it's both a friendly form of address with a connotation of respect.

As for honorifics, that works some of the time. The best policy is generally to avoid honorifics (-san, -sama, -dono-, -shi, etc) in English, replacing them when possible with titles like Mr., Miss, Lord, Master, etc. that would be roughly equivalent. But there are times where it still doesn't match the original meaning exactly.


In short, I think most of the stupid cases can be avoided with common sense. When that doesn't work, then you have to have a discussion.

--------

Anyway, for our little pet project here, it probably doesn't hurt to stick with how it was originally. I was just complaining.

I agree with all of that because that's how I'd probably handle translation if I was in that position...I'm kind of helping out on a certain scanlation as well and got into a heated debate/argument with the lead QC simply because he didn't set out clear rules for me to work by and I was kind of doing what I thought was right - the results of some of his QC'ing was quite confusing English and all I wanted to do was edit it a little to make it more understandable while retaining the essential meaning.

As for the Japanese usage of Nii-san/Nee-san etc. ...my understanding of the Japanese language kind of stems from the rules of my second language (Hindi) and how we use it in my family/house. It's pretty similar (a few different ways to say Sister/Brother etc. plus the usage of nicknames) so I don't get half as much in a twist over it :p

But I do think people over-complicate matters when it comes to translation, sure you'll find something tricky, but it's not as hard/rigid as most make it sound.

And...I keep saying this, but uber respect and admiration at you having such a cool job :3

End of the day though, it's just personal preference and I'm happy to stick to whatever convention/rules that are decided upon.

I used to help with some scanlation too. It can get annoying when everything is so disorganized and each release reads way differently because of different people working on it, incompetent editors, etc.

Well, translation is a complicated affair. But good practice is to lay down clear ground rules for a project beforehand. Like a common terms list, to avoid needless headaches when you go back and realize you used seven different words for one thing.

Ja! I know - I kept saying that setting out rules for me to work by would have been the best thing to do (despite pontificating that the group is pretty relaxed and takes the opinions of everybody involved on board, only to snap whenever I suggested something without giving me an adequate reason why...) But the result of that dispute, with the mediation of the person who did the actual translating, was for the QC to abandon the project altogether and only focus on the new chapters being released (I'm working on the older unscanlated chapters) so it's just me (who can read no Japanese unless it's romanised) and the translator who takes the time to translate both old (not a priority) and new chapters...

Ah well...let's just say it's slow-going on my end on the project...I trust the translator and I'll just spruce up where I think I can and refer to him for clarification...

And uh thanks about my second Arcueid Bloodlust take...something just didn't sit right with me about the first take and so I went and read that part again to understand the context :)

NEXTCHARACTER: sample 1, 2, 3...

and then for the poll votes make it CHARACTER 1, CHARACTER 2, NEXTCHARACTER 1, NEXTCHARACTER 2...

The only problem I see with this is that some people might get chosen for multiple characters.

"No matter how much of the occult you study, no matter how long-lived you are, you cannot experience death.
You all gain so much power by resisting death, but at the same time it is the source of your weakness.
You run away from death whereas I accept it. That is the difference in nature between you, Arcueid Brunestud, and I, Michael Roa Valdamjong."
