The iDOLM@STER – 08

The iDOLM@STER - 08

I want Makoto to hold me in her arms and tell me that everything will be all right. Having Makoto’s firm arms around me would make me feel like a completely safe and content little girl. I want Makoto to get in a fight to defend my honor. I want Makoto to pick me up and carry me over the threshold. I wish to be Makoto’s wife. Makoto would treat me right. When I see Makoto, I feel like a maiden in love for the first time.

The iDOLM@STER – 06

The iDOLM@STER - 06

I hear this episode had epic TS. So epic we had two TSers working together for several hours on it all.

But anyway, this episode has a couple things that were too complicated to fit into TL notes, so I decided to write an essay explaining them completely for the newspost. (There’s a much abbreviated TL note in the subtitles, so people who don’t read the blog still get an explanation, just not a complete one.)

Now, on the origin of Ryuuguu Komachi’s name. It’s a pretty convoluted and complex reference. “Ryuuguu” is the “Palace of the Dragon King” out of the fable of Urashima Tarou. It is the home of the dragon god of the sea, Ryuujin. The name “Ryuuguu Komachi” literally means “The Beauties of the Palace of the Dragon King”. However, that is only the first part of the reference. You see, there is a Chinese character somehow relating to water in the family names of each of the Ryuuguu Komachi members: The “mi” in Futami (Ami) is the character for “sea” (which can also be read “umi”). The “Mina” in “Minase” (Iori) is the character for “water” (which can also be read “mizu”). The “ura” in “Miura” (Azusa) is the character for “bay”. As to Haruka’s later comment, the “mi” in “Amami” is also the character for “sea”, just like Futami’s “mi”.

Second, to anyone complaining that “the insert song doesn’t make sense!”: in Japanese, the song lyrics are rife with word plays, aphorisms, parodies of aphorisms, and stream of consciousness. So it’s fairly nonsensical in Japanese, and made much more so in English by numerous things that are impossible to translate.

Tomorrow sees the release of Mayo Chiki. Blood-C did not air this week. – Holo

The iDOLM@STER – 06 (Extended Web Preview)

The iDOLM@STER - 06 Pre

Did anyone else play “Guess which one is narrating the preview” last week? I did, for the purpose of having something for the actor field on the script, and my guess turned out to be correct.

In other news, does anyone really want to see the episodes 2 and 3 extended web previews that we missed? Because those are pending.
