Notes and Explanations :

I consider Valkyrie Profile one of the greatest games ever created, and I'm sure there are people
out there who agree with me. Now, to cut a long story short, if you want to know why I'm 
bothering to write a FAQ like this for a game that ALREADY has an English translation, simply
read the beginning of my Valkyrie Profile FAQ - it explains things pretty concretely.

Basically, I want to give English game players a chance to experience the true beauty of the 
game's original language, hence this FAQ. There are a few things you should remember when reading
this :

1) This will get very technical at times...after all, in attempting to explain fully the depth
of the original dialogue, I will have to go a bit deeper into the linguistic basics behind some
of the words/expressions. Feel free to skip the technical bits - they are there for completeness's
sake and those hardcore few who want to read them.

2) It's incomplete. Some times, I will be unable to translate certain sections because I can't
hear properly what they're saying, or because my friend (whose saves I'm using) hasn't completed
a certain character yet.

3) I don't completely hate the English translation. In some respects, it's even better than mine
(yes, I'm a big man, I can admit it) in that it reads better. But still, I think people deserve
to hear the original lines rendered in a truer fashion - hence this FAQ. I will elaborate more
on this point and give clearer examples in a later version.

That's about it so far. Please read and enjoy.

(This stuff is copied from my full Valkyrie Profile FAQ...actually, this FAQ is also going to be
replicated there.)

A lot of battle quotes (most specifically the ones used by gods and samurai) tend to have 
weird-sounding translations more often that not. That's because I'd prefer to do the line 
literally and get more meaning out of it than try to convert to totally into English and risk the
essence getting lost...however, for most of them where this is not intergral to the understanding
of the line/s, I will abandon the original sense of the quote instead and give you a nicer 
English translation. Here are examples :

1. "Sono mi ni kizare!" could also be rendered as "I will obliterate you!" but I've chosen my 
version since it keeps the original wording, which I feel important in this case.

2. However, for something like "Mada yaru ki ka?" translates literally to "Still got the 
inclination to do it?" while "Up for more, eh?" is shorter, more succint and gets the meaning 
across better. At least I happen to think so.

Anyway, I hope you get what I'm trying to say here. ^_^

Seriously, though, most Finishers tend to have a Biblical\religious feel about them, which 
accounts for how the lines sound. Try to appreciate them for what they are and not wonder too
much about how they sound in English.

Key :

*indicates nature of quote - fighting, winning etc* The () next to it indicates which block it is
on the screen - helpful for cross-referencing English to Japanese and vice versa.

"quote"

("translation")

? I missed a word or two.

??? Either I don't have all of the quote or I'm not too sure of my 
translation or both. 

(Notes about the quote. Very technical stuff, ignore if you want.)

***Comparison with the English quote. Again, it's technical and you don't need to read it. I will
only be doing these for quotes in which I think understanding the difference between both quotes
is integral.***

I'm not doing any quote which is a sound ("Arrgggh, Hyaa! and Oof!" come to mind) but I will 
indicate how many attack\evade ones there are. All quotes will be listed from the left to right 
in the order they appear in the voice collection screen.

Also, if you didn't know, netting all the quotes for a single character will let you view a 
full-screen picture of him\her by pressing the Square button.

Mini-Glossary :

Shingi - Literally, "Divine Technique". Special war skills used only by the
gods.

Ougi - Literally, "Secret Skill". Denotes either a powerful (often hidden) skill of a particular 
fighting style\school (or one self-created) or the "succession technique" of said school - a move 
which, when learnt, proves that the person using it has mastered his\her fighting style 
completely. Most Ougi in this game take the first definition, though. 

Hissatsu - Literally, "Sure-Kill Technique." It more or less means "Special Move" but to clear 
things up I've included this definition.

Kami - God, god, gods or spirit. I've rendered it as "God" most times, but you should know there 
are various interpretations. Hope I haven't offended anyone...

Einferias - Einherjar in English. Since I have no knowledge of the original Norse/Celtic, I can't
tell whether this was a better or worse translation.

VALKYRIE :

*begin fight* (1)

"Shi no, saki wo yuku mono-tachi yo!" ("Those who have embraced the arms of death!")

(The juxtaposition of various particles here implies that Valkyrie is calling upon them to do
something...my original translation read as "To me, those who have embraced the arms of death!"
but it was less correct than this one. Still, I hope you get my meaning.)

*against strong opponent* (2)

"Ware to tomo ni ikiru wa reigen-naru yusha...ide yo!" ("Ye grim champions who journey by my side
...come forth!")

("Ikiru" in this case literally means "live" (this ties in with a lot of the original dialogue
in the game...the reference is lost in English) but I've chosen to render it as "journey" here.
Also, both the "ware" and "reigen-naru" are archaic forms of Japanese - to preserve the original
meaning, I translated the sentence into medieval English.)

*against Blood Bane* (3) and (4)

? "Tamashii wo boutoku shita tsumi wa omoi...sou wa sho no moto ni messei yo!" ("Thy sin of 
blasphemy against souls is great...I will return you to the source of all!)

(I could also have chosen to render "tsumi wa omoi" as "bears heavily upon you" but I prefer
the translation I used. The second part of the translation is admittedly fudged...this is because
this quote is the single hardest line to translate in the entire game. I won't bore you with the
details, but basically 

sou - this

no moto ni - to the source of 

sho - crazy word that has absolutely no English equivalent. It's used in magical chants to 
indicate the presence of a higher force. I really have no idea how to render this

messe yo - to be destroyed, annihilated

If I were to break it down literally, you'd get a very weird-sounding translation...get my 
problem here? Wow, this was a long explanation...)

*when the fight begins against Arli* (5) to (7)

"Minna watashi no tame ni...dou ka shiranai...onegai!" ("All of you, for my sake...however this
might end...please!"

(Remember that the above is said in a tone halfway between questioning and uncertainty...it's
really tough to do, but I've done my best.)

*Finisher* (8) to (10)

"Sono mi ni kizare...Shingi! Niberun Baresuti!" ("I annihilate thy form...Divine Technique! 
Nibelung Valesti!")

(This is a good example of what I mean by literal as opposed to figurative translation.)

***The English translation is off here. The imperative form of "engrave" is "kizame" not "kizare"
If you'll remember one of my earlier translations, I made the same mistake.***

*after Finisher* (11) to (14)

"Owatta no ka... ("It's over...")

"Kimi ni tsukui no michi nado nai." ("There is no way to save one such as you.")

"Aruki-beki basho ni kaere!" ("Return from whence you came!")

"Kore ga unmei." ("This is fate.")

*not dead after Finisher* (15) to (18)

"Mada iki ga aru no ka?" ("Still breathing?")

(Literally "still has breath left?")

***I have to admit that the English translation of "You still breathe?" is probably better here...
one of my few errors.***

"Kore ijou wa muimi da to wakaranai no ka?" ("Don't you know it's useless past this point?")

"Kurushimu dake da to iu no ni." ("To say that this is but pain...")

(Yes, this is an accurate translation. She actually says that.)

"Naruhodo...kono gurai de wa shinenai no ka." ("I see...looks like you won't die from this.")

*winning* (19) to (21)

"Reikyu-nakimono wa tada messuru no mi!" ("The fate of restless spirits shall be nothing more 
than annihilation itself!")

"Tamashii no sokubaku wa tsueta...kono ba ni todomari kotobari wa mou nai." ("The bindings of
these souls have been released...we have no reason to remain.")

"Yoku yatta...Einferia-tachi yo." ("Done well, Einferias.")

*attack and defense sounds* (22) to (26)

*evading* (23) to (25)

"Mikitta!" ("Saw that!")

(To "mikitta" is literally to "see and cut" - it refers to a samurai's ability to instantly 
recognize a move and prepare a defense.)

"Tsujiru mono ka?" ("Think that will get past me?")

"Sono teido ka?" ("That's the best you can do?")

(Literally "this ability?" I.e, she's asking whether this is the extent of the enemies' ability.)

*upon death* (26) to (28)

"So...sonna..." ("It, it can't be...")

"Augggh!"

"Hyaaauggh!"



---

FREY/FREYA :

*begin fight*

"Maa, sukoshi wa dekiru mitai dakedo...sore dake deshou?" ("It would seem that they're somewhat
strong...but only somewhat, hmm?")

"Teihen de haizuru mono wo miteoku mono...tama ni wa ne?"

"Kekkai de tatakau to mo hontou ni hisashiburi." ("It has been long indeed since I have fought on
Midgard.")

*Finisher* (5) to (7)

"Jouka wo shite ageru wa...Shingi! Eeteru Sutoraiku!" (I shall cleanse thee...Divine Technique! 
Ether Strike!")

***Better than the English translation, as the latter has "prepare to be cleansed"...wrong, as
the "shite ageru wa" means that Frey will "give" the enemy something, which I render using the
"shall cleanse thee."***

*after Finisher* (8) and (9)

"Watashi ni kiba wo muta mukui yo!" ("Thy deservest thus for baring fangs at me!")

"Kegarawashii." ("Filthy.")

(An alternate translation could be "What filth...")

"Nani mo nokoranai dake...gomi    ne!" ("

"Waga na wa Furei! Raisei no seichi demo oboete okinasai!" ("Mine name be Frei! Remember it well
even in the holy grounds of the afterlife!")

"Sono mama taoretereba ii no ni." ("Being defeated would have been a blessing.")

"Jougen no shinri wa kawaranai no yo." ("The extent of truth will never change.")

"Damatte soko ni nasai! Mou ichido ageru kara." ("Stand and be silent, for once more will be
all it takes.")

"Jibun wa muryoku datte kizukenai hodo orokana no?" ("Are you so foolish as to not realize the
extent of your powerlessness?")

"Maa, konna kanji yo ne?" ("It feels like this, I suppose.")

"Touzen no kekka da wa." ("The expected result.")

"Kore ni taerareru?" ("Can you withstand this?")

"Koukai sasete ageru wa!" ("I shall make you regret this!")

"Iya, iyaaaa!" ("No, nooooo!")

"Sonna...kono hazu wa!" ("What...how could this be!")




AMY/AELIA

"Tama ni wa...maji ni itte miru?"

"Chodo ii kanji na no mono ja nai no kai?"

"Choitto udedamashi shite yarou ja nai ka?"

"Are ga aite? Kore ja ijime ja nai?"

"Karada ga atsue...chikara ga mezameru! Ougi : Doragon Doreddo!" ("My body burns...the power 
awakens! Secret Skill : Dragon Dread!")

"Atashi wo honki ni saseta omae no warui no sa." ("It's your fault you got me all riled up.")

"Aite ga warukatta na." 

'Atashi mo, kekkou yaru darou?" 

"Ahahahahaha...kaikan!" ("Ahahahahaha...this feels good.")

(Depending on how colloquial you consider Amy to be, you could also say "what a rush" but I
chose to go with the more used one.)

"Uso..." ("No way...")

"Taoshita to omotta no ni..." ("I thought that would kill...")

"Kekkou...tegowai." ("Actually...quite strong.")

"Koitsu...dekiru." ("This one's...good.")

"Mamono wa kekkou heta aiteru wa." ("Monsters aren't exactly skilled opponents.")

JERAD/JELANDA

understandably difficult to translate in certain instances, hence this note.)
