Translation: Script: <Nahato's Darkness>
« on: March 16, 2015, 07:12:24 PM »
*Disclaimer: This post contains SPOILERS. Please tread with caution. I will not take responsibility for any spoilers that you encounter in this post.*
Hey, all! Here are my translations of the <Nahato's Darkness> script from scratch, one that's literal and 'Aoi-like' and another that I interpreted more for smoother reading and for the patch. If you have any comments or suggestions for the script, feel free to post them! :)

A Quick Note:
Anything that is put in hard brackets [] means that whatever is in there is not yet set in stone and is subject to change. Any suggestions for changes are welcome.

Another Long Note:
You'll notice that I have included two translations. One that is sloppy but somewhat literal and another that is interpereted in the way that I would translate the game. This is because the Japanese language is different from English in thought, feeling, concept, and grammar/syntax, and literally translating Japanese in a way that makes sense is impossible. Please read both to understand roughly the concept from the original Japanese version and the way I would translate the game.

Also:
Small, half-width pointed brackets like these <> will represent a block of text.
These usually require the A or B button to continue, and the text will clear from the screen after the end of each block.

About [Pause]:
These [Pause] tags often indicate a brief moment when the game will stop before continuing with the dialog or Klonoa's narration. These tags also act as a trigger for certain actions characters will make during cutscenes such as jumping or changing expressions, so, for the sake of the romhacker, I decided to include these in my translation post.


Below are the dumps/transcriptions of the Japanese text. The translation will be after this post.

      <After that....>
      <Pango returned home to the family he loves.
      With the power of the Hikari Sakura,
      his child's Sleeping Sickness was cleared/removed,
      and is now completely the mischevious kid he once was.>
      <Before the summer festival, Pango
      did his utmost for the fireworks job.>
      <The picture that was sent, Pango
      somehow looks like he is even more lively than
      the time he was adventuring.>
      <I'm looking forward to meeting him
      at the summer festival!>
      <Guntz faded his form unnoticed.
      He probably went off into a aimless/carefree trip again.>
      <He said that he got his father's revenge,
      so it doesn't seem like he lost
      his meaning of going on adventure.>
      <In the end, I never got to hear
      what he would do with the money he earned.
      Well, in the meantime, there might be (a time/chance)
      we will meet again!>
      <And I....>
      [Wind Village, Sakura Mountain Pass]
      <Chipple: Anikiii!!>
      <Klonoa: Fuaaaaah.... What the heck,
         and I was having a good dream.
      Chipple: A nap in a place like thiiis?>
      <Chipple: You still haven't shown me
         your Hero Medal.
      Klonoa: Really?>
      <Klonoa: Hehen, I wonder what I should do....
      Chipple: Don't tease me, I want you to show me!>
      <Klonoa: Alright. Theeeeen! Ta-daaaaaa!!
         ........................Huh?>
      <Klonoa: Blank... Medal....?>
      <Chipple: What's wrong/happened?
         Aniki, I'm sure you said it became
         a Gold Medal or something
         or a Star Medal or something...>
      <Klonoa: Huuuuh...? That's odd...>
      <Klonoa: ........................>
      <Klonoa: .............. Well, whatever.
      Chipple: Eeeeh!?>
      <Klonoa: There are things like those too. Besides that,
         I found a nice secret place!
         Amazing I will take you there well!>
      <Chipple: Eh, really? Ah, wait a little.
         I am going tooo!!>
      <I wonder if it was because I was playing around too much....
      The Medal returned to the beginning state
      unnoticed.>
      <But it's nothing to panic over.
      It's more simple!
      It's just if I go out on an adventure again,
      it'll be fine!>
      <The power to continue forward for a step.>
      <With just that,>
