IMMEDIATE THINGS TO NOTE!
=========================

I realize there is already a script FAQ for this game at GameFAQS, but the
script in that FAQ is the script created by Sonic Team; immediate typos and
grammatical problems are noticeable. This script faq encompasses the US version
of this game. (I personally think the other script is much too vertical.)
Anyway, in short,

I DID NOT USE THE OTHER FAQ AS A REFERENCE AS THE SCRIPTS ARE COMPLETELY
DIFFERENT!

Read more about the different versions in the Information->Reading section
below.


===========
Information
===========
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
General:

I created this FAQ for the purpose of spreading the humour and interest of Puyo
Puyo, or Puyo Pop. This is a rather old game, three years about, but it's still
fresh in the sense of its dialogue. Perhaps this FAQ will most likely be too
discreet for its own good, but if I worried about that I wouldn't be doing
this. Anyway, this is definitely one of the funnier dialogues I've read in the
Puyo series. Puyo Fever doesn't have much going for it in terms of dialogue,
even though it was made by the same team three years after. So that's why I
decided the older game over the newer one. This FAQ is meant for people who
like to remember the funny parts or for new people who just randomly stumbled
here. So, without further ado, have fun laughing your butt off, and try to buy
the game!

Reading:

The dialogue here is the US version of the game. Sure, the Japanese version has
English as well, but it's often grammatically incorrect and riddled with a few
spelling errors. Generally, the US version of the game is better because even
though both versions have Japanese and English, the US version has better
English. If you somehow have the Japanese version, this FAQ will pretty much be
useless. The English isn't butchered at all by the way, if you bothered to
read, you'll notice it's actually quite humorous.

A small note, I'm pretty meticulous, so everything here is word for word,
letter for letter, ellipses for ellipses, lengthened tone for lengthened tone,
straight from the game.

----------------------------------------------------------
FOR PEOPLE WHO DON'T WANT TO READ THE PREVIOUS PARAGRAPHS:
----------------------------------------------------------
Dialogue = US version.
Purpose of FAQ = Spread the funny and Puyo interest.


===============
Version History
===============

09/28/2004: Initial release, and probably final. There's nothing more to add,
1.00        unless it's to fix a small error or two.

Index
=====

This FAQ is very straightforward and doesn't require a real detailed index.
To find what you want, it's most easily located by pressing CTRL+F and typing
in the area you wish, because chances are, if you're looking for something, 
you most likely know which area the conversation took place in.
The area names area as follows:

[Hajimari Forest] ...actually, just scroll down a few centimetres.
[Goldtown]
[Gachinko Dungeon]
[Magical Tower]
[Dark P. Castle]

If you wish for specific character's conversation, I have provided codes to
CTRL+F as well. For each character, just open up the find window and copy in
one of the corresponding shortcuts:

(You'd put "vs. Schezo" in your CTRL+F window, the number of conversations is
 just extra information)

vs. Skeleton T      2 conversations
vs. Incubus         2 conversations
vs. Seriri          1 conversation

TOTAL:              26 conversations

As for character descriptions, just read one of the conversations and you'll
get more than enough out of it :).

There's a Japanese section for script comparisons, it's quite interesting. To

Personal Favourite Scenario in Hajimari Forest: They're all really funny to me.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Intro:
One fine day, Arle was playing with Carbuncle as usual when...

Arle: Oh no! Carbuncle!! What did I tell you about eating stuff on the ground!?
      Say Ah! Ahhh!!
Carbuncle: Aaah...
Arle: I can't take you anywhere...
      Huh? What's this? (holding a golden rune) Hmm... Huh? (gate appears)
      Did that gate just materialize out of thin air? Or am I dreaming?
Carbuncle: Gugaa!
Arle: Hey! Carbuncle!! Where do you think you're going! Wait for me!!
Carbuncle: Gugaa! Gugaaaaa!

And so begins another strange adventure for our dear little Arle.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Stage One, vs. Skeleton T
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Arle: Hey, hey you... A strange-looking gate appeared at the forest entrance.
      I was just wondering if you knew anything about it.
Skeleton T: Don't worry about it.
            Just rest your bones and have some tea with me.
Arle: Uh, thanks. (Gulp-gulp...)
Skeleton T: MWAHAHAHAHA! You've fallen straight into my trap!
Arle: What?! Is... is the tea poisoned?!
Skeleton T: No, I made this tea with... USED TEA BAGS!!! MWAHAHAHA!!!
Arle: Noooooo!! ...But, hey. It's actually not that bad.
Skeleton T: What?! If you can drink tea that's been brewed from a used bag...
            You are either a tea connoisseur or you have no tastebuds at all!
Arle: Like you should talk! You don't even have a tongue to begin with!
Skeleton T: What?! How dare you! That's it! I challenge you to Puyo Pop!
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Stage Two, vs. Incubus
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Incubus: Hey, baby. Come here often?
Arle: ...
      Go away.
Incubus: Hey! I just want to get to know you! What's your sign, baby?
Arle: Octagon. As in "stop."
Incubus: Oooh, I like a girl with a sense of humor!
         Let's make jokes together...
Arle: That does it.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Stage Three, vs. Seriri
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Seriri: Uh... H-hello...
Arle: Oh, hello there.
Seriri: Did you come here to play with me?
Arle: No, not really. I was actually just...
Seriri: I knew it! You're here to eat me because I'm a mermaid, right?!
Arle: No, not really. I was actually just...
Seriri: The story about never aging if you eat a mermaid isn't true!
Arle: Really? If you eat a mermaid you won't age? I didn't know that!
Seriri: Ah! Darn it! I let another secret slip out!
        I won't give up without a fight!

[After Puyo Match Win # 1, when receiving rune]

Seriri: I guess this means I am done for. Goodbye, cruel world...
        It was a short, but wonderful life...
Arle: Um... Hello? I wasn't planning on eating you...
Seriri: Y-you weren't?
Arle: I just wanted to ask you for directions.
Seriri: Oh, was that all? I guess I got my fins crossed for nothing...
Arle: Well... don't worry. It's no big deal.
Seriri: Sorry about that. Let me make it up to you. Here take this...
ARLE received the MERCHANT RUNE! You can now go to GOLDTOWN!
(Or a card, etc. if it's the second+ time thru)

[After Puyo Match Win # 2, when delivering item]

Seriri: I guess this means I am done for. Goodbye, cruel world...
        It was a short, but wonderful life...
Arle: Um... Hello? I just came here to bring this to you...
ARLE takes out the SCALE PENDANT.
Seriri: Oh! Thank you so much!
        I lost it a while back and I've been looking for it ever since!
Arle: Well, I'm glad I could help you.
Seriri: Thank you so very much. Take this as a token of my appreciation.
ARLE received the GODDESS RUNE!
You can now go to the TRIAL LABYRINTH!
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Yes, Arle says "No, not really..." twice. It's not a mistake. I checked.

Personal Favourite Scenario in Goldtown: vs. Suketoudara


Stage One, vs. Kikimora
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Kikimora: Welcome, welcome. Are you new here?
Arle: Yes I am but... why do you ask?
Kikimora: Because the rules are a bit different here.
          You'll have to deal with Block Puyo called "Point Puyo."
Arle: Point Puyo?
Kikimora: If you clear a POINT PUYO, you can...
          ...send Point Puyo to your opponent!
Arle: Now those sound like handy little puyo.
Kikimora: But, your opponent can do the same thing to you, so be careful.
Arle: Hmm... Good point. Watch out for counterattacks, right?
Kikimora: That's right.
          First, try practicing here to get the hang of it.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Stage Two, vs. Suketoudara
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Arle: I'm getting so hungry. My stomach is starting to rumble.
      What shall I have... Something refreshing and light...
      Hmm...
Suketoudara: Hey! Watch me dance! I'm more graceful than a fish out of water!
Arle: I know! I'll have sushi!
Suketoudara: ...Huh?
Arle: I don't know why, but I got a sudden craving for sushi!
Suketoudara: ......
Arle: Hm? Where'd you come from?
Suketoudara: Don't turn me into sushi, please...
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Stage Three, vs. Harpy 
(Just pretend ¶ is a music note)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Arle: Hey, hey, you over there.
Harpy: Yes?¶ What is it I can do for you?¶
Arle: Can I ask a favor of you?
Harpy: What?¶ You'd like to hear me sing? Gladly!¶
       Okay! Get ready to be moved to tears!¶ Here I go!¶
Arle: Huh?
Harpy: La ta ta ta!¶ La da di da!¶

Stage Four, vs. Minotaur
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Arle: Hey! It's you!
Minotaur: Moo.
Arle: Why aren't you with Rulue today?
Minotaur: I'm just out buying groceries to cook for tonight's dinner.
Arle: Oh, I see. Hey, there's something I've been wanting to ask you...
Minotaur: Moo?
Arle: Don't you find it hard being with Rulue all the time?
Minotaur: What do you mean?
Arle: Well, Rulue is a bit selfish at times, don't you think?
      You should tell her how you feel sometimes.
Minotaur: Mooo! I won't have you badmouthing my Rulue!
          I shall avenge Rulue's honor by defeating you! Mooo!
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Stage Five, vs. Nohoho
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Nohoho: Nohoho! See anything you like?
Arle: Sorry... I didn't come here to shop.
Nohoho: Regardless, you still have to buy something. Store policy.
Arle: Well, I don't need to shop. But I do need some directions...
Nohoho: Okay then... let's play Puyo Pop!
Arle: Huh?

[After Puyo Match Win # 1, when receiving rune]

Nohoho: Nohoho! I can't believe I lost!
Arle: Well... since I won fair and square, you have to give me directions.
Nohoho: Well okay then... Here take this.
Arle: No, I said I didn't come here to shop...?? Huh? What's this?
ARLE received the WARRIOR RUNE! You can now go to GACHINKO DUNGEON!

Arle: What are the magic words?
Nohoho: I give up. You win...
        Here! I'll give you this! Just give me back my rucksack!

Personal Favourite Scenario in Gachinko Dungeon: Stage Five, vs. Draco


Stage One, vs. Kikimora
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Kikimora: Oh, welcome!
Arle: Huh? Oh, it's you again.
      I've guess you've got some wacky new rule for me to learn, huh?
Kikimora: You guessed it. There's a new Block Puyo called "Hard Puyo." 
Arle: Hard Puyo?
Kikimora: They are pesky little Puyo who don't disappear in one move.
Arle: Man, they sound like a real pain.
Kikimora: They are! Here, I'll show you! Let's practice!
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Stage Two, vs. Harpy 
(Just pretend ¶ is a music note)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Harpy: Why, hello there¶
Arle: Oh, no... It's you again.
Harpy: What are you up to this time?¶
Arle: Uh, well... Not really anything in particular.
Harpy: Oh, really?¶ So you're just killing time, huh?¶
Arle: Uh oh...
Harpy: Then why don't you stay and listen to my new song?¶
       La-ta-ta-la¶ La-di-da-da¶
Arle: Geez! You're just as bad as last time! Haven't you practiced at all??
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Stage Three, vs. Zoh-Daimaoh
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Zoh-Daimaoh: None shall pass!
Arle: Why not?
Zoh-Daimaoh: Well, um... because I said so! 
             No one may pass unless you beat me in Puyo Pop!
Arle: Forget it, then. I'm going home.
Zoh-Daimaoh: What?! Y, you can't!
Arle: Why not?!
Zoh-Daimaoh: Since you're here, we have to play Puyo Pop!
Arle: I don't understand your logic, but okay... I'll play.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Stage Four, vs. Rulue
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Rulue: Well, if it isn't Arle. What ever are you doing here?
Arle: Rulue! Perfect timing.
      Actually, I got lost and I was wondering if you could tell me...
Rulue: Silence!!
       I know what you're up to! You're going to see the Dark Prince!
Arle: Dark Prince? What? Well, that wasn't what I was doing. I was...
Rulue: Hah! All lies! I know you all too well, Arle!
       I'll defeat you and be the one to see the Dark Prince!
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Stage Five, vs. Draco
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Draco: Arle!
Arle: Oh, it's you, Draco...
Draco: If you want to get by, then you have to beat me in a contest!
Arle: A contest? What... another beauty contest?
Draco: Heh... a beauty contest?
       You seriously think that I would challenge you to a beauty contest??
Arle: What?! You mean to say that you're really going to challenge me to...?
Draco: Beauty queens are soooo passe. 
       Girls with big horns are the big thing now.
Arle: ...Right. Now go back to bed and let me bring you your medicine.
Draco: Poor Arle... It must be frustrating feeling so behind the times.
       But don't worry! I'm here to put you out of your misery!

[After Puyo Match Win # 1, when receiving rune]

Arle: Haha! You're not even in my league, Draco!
Draco: I can't believe it! I lost again!
       But that's the way the cookie crumbles. Here's your prize.
ARLE received the CONJURER RUNE!
You can now go to MAGICAL TOWER!
(Or a card, etc. if it's the second time+ thru)

[After Puyo Match Win # 2, when delivering item]

Arle: Haha! Try as many times as you like! You'll never beat me, Draco!
Draco: I can't believe it! I lost again!
       Wait... Arle! Is this what I think it is?
Arle: What? This thing?
ARLE takes out the FLAME EXPANDER!
Draco: That's it! That's the ever-popular FLAME EXPANDER!
       I ordered one three years ago and it never came!
Arle: Really? Here. You can have mine.
Draco: Really really really?? Everyone should have a friend like you!
Arle: Alright, now. Don't get all mushy on me.
Draco: Oh, I almost forgot! Take this as a token of my appreciation.
ARLE received the NOHOHO RUCKSACK!

Kikimora: Oh, hello.
Arle:You again. Alright, lay the rules on me.
Kikomora: Hey now... you could at least pretend like you are excited to see me.
          Maybe I shouldn't tell you. That oughta teach you a thing or two.
Arle: Oh, come on! Just get on with it! Tell me!
Kikomora: Well, I guess you seem enthusiastic enough. Okay, I'll tell you.
Arle: I didn't realize you could be so annoying.
Kikomora: Here, there will be black puto on the field from the start.
Arle: From the get-go? So I should probably erase them first, huh?
Kikomora: That might work but... It's smarter to use them to your advantage.
          And if you can make chains on top of them, you'll do great!
Arle: Hmm... it all sounds a little difficult...
Kikomora: Well, you know what they say! "Practice makes perfect!"
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Stage Two, vs. Suketoudara
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Arle: Uh oh, I've got a case of the munchies again. What should I eat...
Suketoudara: Hey! Watch me dance! I'm more graceful than a fish out of water!
Arle: I know! I'll have some grilled fish!
Suketoudara: ...Huh?
Arle: Fish is so healthy. It's low in fat AND it tastes great!
Suketoudara: ......
Arle: Huh? You again?
Suketoudara: You! You're doing that on purpose!!
Arle: Huh? Doing what on purpose?
Suketoudara: Don't give me that! You won't get me without a fight!!!

Incubus: Hey, baby... Fancy seeing you here!
Arle: Great... You again.
Incubus: Couldn't get enough of me, eh? I know, I know. I'm hard to resist.
         But wait... can you hear that? I think it's destiny calling!
         It's fate baby! There's no fighting it! We belong together!
Arle: Don't you EVER give up?
      Maybe this time, if I beat you, you'll never bother me again!
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Stage Four, vs. Schezo

Schezo: Arle!
Arle: ...
Schezo: After today, your power will belong to me!!
Arle: ......
Schezo: You can't just ignore me, Arle! I have come to take your powers!!
Arle: ......
Schezo: Why?! Why is it that you always manage to make a fool out of me?!?
Arle: That's it. I give up. You're hopeless.
Schezo: I see you are coming to accept your fate! Arle! Hear me now! I am...
Arle: Oh! Did you think I was actually paying attention to you?
Schezo: What did you say!!
Arle: For the people of this world! For every man, woman, and child!

Witch: Rats... but you know what? There's something I wanted to ask you...
Arle: What's that?
Witch: I happened to see that book you're carrying with you...
Arle: What, this old thing?
ARLE takes out the DUBIOUS BOOK!
Witch: That's it! I knew it!! I thought I recognized it!
       Uh, Arle... I've got a little preposition for you...
Arle: Fine. Take it.
Witch: Huh?
Arle: You want this book? You can have it. I don't need it anyway.
Witch: Yes, I'll take it! And don't ask for it back. It's mine now.
Arle: You could at least say thank you.
Witch: But, wait... Come to think of it, a little while back...
       ...a TV shopping show sent me the wrong thing.
       It's not much of a trade, but here... I don't need it, so you have it.

Lagnus: I am Lagnus the Brave!
        Fair damsel! Who knows what danger lurks in yon castle!
        It is too perilous for you to go forth alone! I shall protect you!
Arle: Um, right. Sorry but...
      I don't have time to play house with a little kid like you!
Lagnus: What?! How dare you call me a little kid!
        En garde! Though I may be little, I am fierce!
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Stage Two, vs. Zoh-Daimaoh
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Zoh-Daimaoh: None shall pass!
Arle: I know, I know. "None shall pass unless we play Puyo Pop," right?
Zoh-Daimaoh: Hmph... I hate when people steal my lines!!
             I'll teach you not to try and upstage me!
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Stage Three, vs. Minotaur
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Minotaur: Mooo!!
Arle: Whoa!! Warn me before you do that! You scared the life out of me!
Minotaur: Arle... I bear no hatred for you but...
          I must detain you until Rulue arrives! It is my duty!
Arle: Rulue again?! Doesn't she ever give up?!
Minotaur: Prepare for battle!
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Stage Four, vs. Skeleton T
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Skeleton T: It's "T" time!!
Arle: Whoa!! You almost scared the pants off me! ...Wait a minute.
      What are you doing out here? Aren't you way out of your league?
Skeleton T: Hahaha! If you think you can easily beat me this time, guess again!
Arle: Hm. He looks like dead serious. He may be tougher than I hoped.
Skeleton T: Now, have I got a bone to pick with you!
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Stage Five, vs. Schezo
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Schezo: Arle! Surrender your magic powers to me now!
Arle: Oh, Schezo! Perfect timing!
Schezo: ???
Arle: I just saw a girl who said she likes you!
      She was carrying a love letter and went that way.
Schezo: Wh, what?! Are you serious, Arle?
Arle: Nope. I was kidding.
Schezo: How could you do this to me? I'm the one who should be teasing you!
        I'm gonna make you regret making fun of me like that!!
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Stage Six, vs. Rulue
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Rulue: So, Arle, you've made it this far.
       Now, just quietly hand over that "rune" and be on your merry way.
       Then maybe I'll pretend I didn't see you.
Arle: Huh? Why do I need to give it to you?
Rulue: Don't stall! Just let me have it!
Arle: Why should I?! Do you even have a clue what this is, Rulue?
Rulue: Don't play dumb with me! But if that's the way you're going to be...
       I'll just have to beat it out of you!
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Stage Seven, vs. Dark Prince
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dark Prince: A-ha-ha!! You were lucky to make it this far, Arle!
Arle: Dark Prince! I should've known you'd be behind all this!!
Dark Prince: Huh? Behind what? What are you talking about?
Arle: Hmm... I really don't know. Forget I mentioned it.
      But, whenever I see you, I can't help but think you're up to no good.
      Maybe it's the horns and wings. They make you look so eeeevil.
Dark Prince: Blasted fool! You've caught on to my plans!
Arle: What!! Oh, no, not again!!
Dark Prince: I will tell you my secret plans! But first, you must fight me!
Arle: I thought we were going to fight anyway? Oh well...

[After win]

Dark Prince: Heh... You are as strong as ever, Arle!
             You... have defeated me. Perhaps it was destiny that interfered...
Arle: Trying to be cool, Dark Prince? You usually have a fit when I beat you.
      Regardless, you promised to tell me your evil plans if I beat you!
Dark Prince: Arle... You didn't happen to find five runes on the way here?
Arle: Runes? Maybe that's why Rulue wanted these things so badly...
      What are they anyway?
Dark Prince: Turn them over and line them up. Then all will be revealed...
Arle: Turn all of them over?
      !! What's this...
Dark Prince: A ticket for twos night at the Love Springs with Dark Prince!
Arle: Gimme a break! Who in their right minds would want this??
Dark Prince: Hmph, hmph... You're blushing.
             Of course, we can take Carbuncle with us!
Arle: I can't believe this! I know what I'll do! I'll throw it away!
Dark Prince: Nooo! How could you?!
             Do you know how long it took me to make that?!
Arle: Let's go, Carbuncle.
Carbuncle: Guu gaa!!
Arle: Huh? Carbuncle? What's that thing you've got in your mouth?

ARLE received the DARK PRINCE MASK!
You can play as Dark Prince in DOUBLE PUYO POP!
(Or the DUBIOUS BOOK which you trade to the Witch if it's the second time
 you beat Dark Prince, and cards and such for each other time you beat him)

Arle: See you around, Your Darkness.
Carbuncle: Guu Gaa!!
Dark Prince: Don't leave me...
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The end animation is a cute short little thing showing Arle cooking Curry,
giving it to Carbuncle, and Carbuncle walking away with it then tripping, thus
dropping the load of food on Dark Prince's head who's under a pile of Puyo
from the previous battle.


===================
-[Trial Labyrinth]-
===================

Stage One, vs. Lagnus
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Arle: Where is this place? It doesn't look like Dark Prince's maze...
Lagnus: That's right, m'lady!
        This labyrinth was built for those seeking to level up!
Arle: Hey! I remember you! You're Lagnus!
Lagnus: All the enemies that appear here are mere illusions...
        But be warned, they are much more powerful than in real life!
        I, too, am but an illusion.
Arle: Wha?
Lagnus: I, Lagnus the Brave, challenge you!
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I have to agree with Arle here. "Wha?"

Carbuncle: Guuuuuu.
Arle: ?? 
      What's up, Carbuncle?
Carbuncle: Gugraaa.
Arle: Carbuncle!
Carbuncle:Gugaagaaagaaa!!!
Arle: What are you doing?! Aaaack!

[After Win]

Arle: Carbuncle! Are you okay?
Carbuncle: Guu!
Arle: Whew, that's good to hear.
Carbuncle: Guu. Guu.
Arle: Oh! I almost forgot about the chest! Let's see what's inside...
Arle opened the treasure chest...
Arle received the DINNER BELL!
You can use Carbuncle in DOUBLE PUYO POP!
Arle: Alright, let's go home, Carbuncle!
Carbuncle: Guuu!
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
THE END!! ....or not.

I can read a bit of Japanese, but I'm still studying. But that's not too much
of a problem here because I can read well enough to understand the bulk of this
game. Anyway, this next section isn't going to be too long. It's just pointing
out significant differences in the Japanese and English scripts.
Don't blame me if my Japanese sucks too. I'm fifteen for crying out loud.

By the way, Dark Prince is called Satan in the Japanese version.
Carbuncle is called Kaa-kun, a shortened nickname.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hajimari Forest (for the record, Hajimari means "Beginning")
---------------
Intro is the same, roughly. 
Arle doesn't mention the tongue in Skeleton T's conversation, but the rest is
the same. That line is placed with "Shut up! Leave me alone!"

Scenario with Incubus is quite different. Full translation:
Incubus: Hey baby, where are you going?
Arle: Geh! Looks like I ran into an unwelcome jerk.
Incubus: Oh honey, even your troubled face is cute.
Arle: Uu.. I just got a chill...
Incubus: Aww, let me warm you up~
Arle: Stoooop~

It appears it's quite different from the Sonic Team English translation as
well as the US translation.
(That "Octagon. As in stop." line is still a masterpiece, I think! Haha.)

Seriri's conversation has two points to note:
"Fu~n, I thought I heard something like that elsewhere, but I see now."
replaces "Really? If you eat a mermaid you won't age? I didn't know that!"
And, "I won't give up without a fight!" is replaced with, "Since you found
out, prepare yourself!"

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Goldtown
--------
Explanation with Kikimora... well, it's an explanation so nothing's changed.

Suketoudara still has the same problem, except it's not sushi. I don't know
what it is, though. I can't read the Kanji.

With Harpy, it works around a word that means to listen and to ask. Therefore,
Arle wants to "ask" something, so Harpy misinteprets it as listen. To her song.
It's interesting how the English translation was able to be worded perfectly.

Nothing changed with Minotaur.

Nohoho's is a bit different, different enough to garner a full translation.
Short note: The "Excuse me~" is said when coming into someone's house or
            a shop like this. I suppose. I say this because here, you don't
            really say "Excuse me" when you enter a shop.

Nonoho: Noho, Welcome!
Arle: Excuse me~... wait, I didn't come to buy anything.
Nohoho: Well, since you came, you still have to buy something.
Arle: Hmm... if it's something then I want some directions.
Nohoho: Yossha Hoijaa, let's play Puyo Puyo!
Arle: Why~~?!
Don't ask what Yossha Hoijaa is. I don't know myself. It's one of those
meaningless sayings, I'm guessing.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Gachinko Dungeon
----------------

Kikimora and Harpy's are unchanged.
 
The "I don't understand your logic" with Zoh-Daimaoh is
changed to, "This is what I wanted to do in the first place anyway..."

"Hah! All lies! I know you all too well, Arle!" with Rulue conversation is
replaced with, "Don't play dumb!"

This is where I become useless.
Draco: Beauty queens are soooo passe. 
       Girls with big horns are the big thing now.
Arle: ...Right. Now go back to bed and let me bring you your medicine.
Draco: Poor Arle... It must be frustrating feeling so behind the times.
       But don't worry! I'm here to put you out of your misery!
These lines are all different. The only one I can read is Arle saying "Haa?"
instead of the line above. Sorry, too much Kanji! But catching what I can
read, I do notice that it is considerably different. If I ever learn more,
or if someone helps me out, I'll one day update this tiny footnote, haha.
And since the after win conversation carries on from the previous, I can't
translate that too.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Magical Tower
-------------

Kikimora's is... guess!

Suketoudara's is the same also... and this time, it's actually the same:
grilled fish. Maybe last time's was some sort of sushi? It wasn't the Kanji for
sushi.

For Incubus, in Japan, they have a thing called "Red String of Fate" or
something like so. So that's what he mentioned, Arle and him must be attached.
"Don't you EVER give up? Maybe this time, if I beat you, you'll never bother me
again!" is replaced with "Ahh! Shut up! I'll beat you once more so that we'll
never meet again!" It's not really too different. The English translation
just changed the wording so it'd make more sense.
(I find it sort of creepy how they both use "Boku" and "Kimi". Maybe it IS the
red string of fate! Well, it's different when males and females use it.. sorry,
too troublesome to explain for you other people.)

Schezo... hilarious guy. 

"That's it. I give up. You're hopeless." is replaced with.. well, it's
essentially the same save for "You're hopeless." I think they should've taken
that out to make Schezo's next line more clear. 

Speaking of his line, "I see you are coming to accept your fate! Arle! Hear
me now! I am..." is replaced with, "It'd be easier for you if you were obedient
from the beginning." ...Wasn't she? What a dork.

"Oh! Did you think I was actually paying attention to you?" is replaced with,
"Who'd listen to you?!" which is much less harsh.

"For the people of this world! For every man, woman, and child! I will shut you
up once and for all! En garde, Schezo!" is replaced with, "For the world! For
the people! And above all else, for my sake! I will beat you! Prepare yourself,
Schezo!" The English works easier but I like the Japanese because of the "for
my sake" part. Schezo = Biggest dork ever.

Witch. Yo is Oissu. It's that thing you hear her say. Oissu. Yeah. Oissu!
Same meaning just about. Just a Japanese "Yo." Do it with me now, Oissu!
Get her card (#11) if you want to hear her say it over and over.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

G-Satan Castle
--------------

I've no idea what that G is doing there. But it's there, in the game.

For Lagnus, "Sorry, but... I don't have time to play house with a little kid
like you!" is replaced with,  "I don't really get it but... Now isn't the time
to be playing "Hero" with a little kid."
"En garde! Though I may be little, I am fierce!" is replaced with, "Fine...
little boy or whatever, it's alright with me if you see for yourself!"

Zoh-Daimaoh: "I'll teach you not to try and upstage me!" is "I'll show you my
blow of anger!" or something around there.

Minotaur: "Warn me before you do that!" is "Whoa, so sudden!",
"Doesn't she ever give up!" is "Give me a break!", "Prepare for battle!" is
"Then, here I go!"

Skeleton T deserves full translation.

Skeleton T: Teaaaa~~~~!!
Arle: Whoa! You scared me! ...Huh?
      Don't you think you're mistaken being out here?
Skeleton T: Hapapapa! You still think I'm the same old me!
Arle: Uu... this seems pretty tough.
Skeleton T: Now, let's have our usual fight!!

Basically, there aren't any puns.

Enter Schezo, the dork.
"How could you do this to me? I'm the one who should be teasing you! I'm gonna
make you regret making fun of me like that!!" is now "Kuu... Arle! No matter
where it is you manage to get me!" (or something) and then followed by another
different line with a word that doesn't seem to appear in the dictionary.
If I remember correctly, Schezo uses a lot of old/medieval Japanese or
something like that, so it's a bit difficult. I'm assuming it's something like
"I'm gonna beat you to a pulp!"

With Rulue, it's the same, except Arle sounds more girly. I should mention that
she sounds much like a different person in Japanese than in English. She
stretches her words a lot. You know, "Eeeeeeh?!"

Satan deserves a full translation.
Sorry, Arle tends to stretch a lot of her words but most of those stretched
words don't work in English, so I have to stretch some that do.
Also, there's a word for hot-spring in Japanese "Onsen" but for some reason it
just says steamy waters, so I'm sticking with that. I think it's supposed to be
more erotic or something.
I translated one line as "Fufufu... You don't have to be too excited."
but the truth is, I ran into an unfamiliar verb "teru" which apparently means
to shine. It didn't really make sense when he said "You don't have to shine
too much." So yeah.

Satan: Fuhahahahaha! Well done in coming this far, Arle!
Arle: Satan! I kne~~~~~~ew you were the one behind all this!
Satan: Huh? What did I do?
Arle: Hmm... now that I think about it, you didn't you anything huh.
      Iyaa~~ When I see your face, I just suddenly get the feeling that your
      planning something boring again...
Satan: Just as expected of you Arle! You noticed well!
Arle: Wha~~~at!? Then you we~~~re planning something! 
Satan: I'll tell you my plans! That is, if you can beat me...
Arle: Just what I wanted to do!

[after win]

Satan: Fufufufufu, I'd expect n-nothing more than such from you!
       W-well done in defeating me!
Arle: That line doesn't suit your state at all, eh Satan?
      [He's blobbed by a gigantic pile of puyo, remember?]
      Now, properly explain what you were planning!
Satan: Arle... You didn't happen to find five runes on your way here?
Arle: Runes? Speaking of them, Rulue seemed to want these.
      What in the world are these things?
Satan: Fu... You'll see if you turn them around and line them up...
Arle: Turn them around...? Ha! This is...!
      A ticket for a date with Satan-sama for two nights and three days at the
      Love-Love Steamy Waters?!
      What the heck is up with this~?
Satan: Fufufu... You don't have to be too excited.
       Of course, Kaa-kun will can come together too!
Arle: I don't need this. (Poi!) [She threw it on his head.]
Satan: Ah~~~! That's so cruel~~~!!
Arle: Let's go Kaa-kun.
Carbuncle: Guu!
Arle: Hm? What's that Carbuncle?
[you get cards, etc., whatever]
Arle: Later Satan.
Carbuncle: Guguuguu~!!
Satan: This can't be happening...

This is actually my first time translating stuff. I find it really difficult to
pick which words work in English, because most of these sayings don't work in
both languages.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
THE END! ...Really!
