Wait, they're doing it at Anime Expo?  I'm actually at AX right now and I didn't know that...I'll have to check the schedule.

Likely information on:

- ToX2
- ToS 1 and 2 "HD" dual-audio
- ToV PS3 (haaha)
- PSN classics

And probably one or either of the first two, especially if this is a NA/EU event as opposed to a Japanese one.

Don't laugh at my dreams of playing Tales of Vesparia in English on the PS3 without having to wait for the fan translation patch that is taking forever! It will be announced! I believe it will happen. :( :p

Tales of fans man. They're almost as crazy as FF fans.
In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.

Naw, it's because it "seems" like it world be an easy sell and fans were teased about it a number of times for nothing to happen.  The issue is more bitter feelings because it was "solved" in an ugly manner.

Surpri---!!!  ....Nope, not really.  Maybe it's just the attachment and nostalgic love I had for ToS, but I preferred the English cast anyways.  But yay, weeabos should be thrilled.

The only problem I see with this is if future titles don't have dual audio fans will be like 'WHY NOT THEY DID IT BEFORE"

I personally am not......okay yes I am. I'm just not waiting on an official release, that was just me joking. I've got a Japanese copy and a CFW PS3 and I am just waiting on the fan translation patch.....which is taking freaking forever. >.>

At this point you might as well just learn Japanese.

Fan translations are a cruel thing almost.  God bless 'em for doing the hard work they do for free, but man, the amount of time they take (since it's done in free time and as unpaid work) makes me sadly finicky about it.

They're also not usually all that good for how much time is put into them. Mind you it's not as bad as a machine translation or something, but it seems like most amateur translators have a great grasp of Japanese > English translation, but not so much a grasp on English grammar.

No matter; Dejap's Tales of Phantasia translation is *totally* the superior fan translation even compared to the official one. x)

fo sure
Some people argue that they took too many liberties with the script, but sometimes, between a terrible well translated joke or a new joke with liberties that's actually funny... you're better with the later.

-----

Heck, I'm actually going to go deeper in my argument here.
Having done translation once, I can fully understand what went through their minds.

Take this example: http://www.flickr.com/photos/14011431@N04/2705889296/in/set-72157603569309062
The original text was about 2 JAPANESE books with different styles that are in JAPANESE only and the only reason JAPANESE people read these books is that most school make students read them.

I could have translated this faithfully... but that would just be a big wtfnofunny.
So I took liberties. I considered that I am reaching to an English speaking audience around the world who's only common point is that they played Persona 3. From there, I valued that the most common trait would be to play jRPGs. Among jRPGs, most people know at least a bit about FFVIII and FFX. So, instead of Japanese books, it's now about FFVIII and FFX.

The raw essence of the joke is about the same, but now people can actually A) understand it B) think it's slightly funny.

On the other hand... this one I'm ashamed of: http://www.flickr.com/photos/14011431@N04/1480093758/in/set-72157603569309062

That one is just impossible to localize well and it just sucks... I ended up putting an explanation page after explaining who that guy is and that he does flower arrangement. Not funny at all.

-----

And then there's this one: http://www.flickr.com/photos/14011431@N04/2584684870/in/set-72157603569309062
That's another one that was untranslatable and I just went f-it... I'm making a Tsukihime joke here because it just fits so well.
It has nothing at all to do with the initial joke, but this one at least can potentially be pretty funny.

So, ahoy to Arche and nuptial tiger-like behaviours.

Yeah, Phantasia is kind of bland. The problem I have with that line though is that it's Claus, who's 29, talking about a 17 year old. Adds some creepy, doesn't it?
