I say we slap him, see how he likes it. My vote is for confront him directly.

Confront him and possibly get bitch-slapped.

Re: Let's Play! Utena for the Sega Saturn!

I'm torn... The first option is a lot like the option we chose earlier in the game, and when there are two similar options, I often worry that one of them is a trap. However, as we learned learned with her Kimi Miki joke, D-ko does stupid things when we give her an unspecific command.

I withhold my vote.

What, you didn't think Kimi Miki was the paragon of Japanese humour and wit? Outrageous! emot-rolleyes

I'd agree with your reasoning about the first option, though. As a famous Mon Calamari once said, "IT'S A TRAP!"

Re: Let's Play! Utena for the Sega Saturn!

"Confront him" wins by one vote. See, Razara, this is why it's important for everyone to participate in a free and democratic society! school-eng101

D-ko:
It's probably best if I just play fair,
and confront him head-on.
I'll just take off my mask, and... okay!

Hey, stop that!

http://ohtori.nu/gallery/var/resizes/Game/Screenshots/Game_Cap_030.jpg?m=1380882736

Saionji:
Hmm? That voice....

D-ko:
What's so fun about picking on people weaker than you?

Saionji:
God, you again. You, the monkey...
why are there always insects getting in my way?

D-ko:
I'm not an insect!
I have a name, you know. It's Kageno D-ko.

Saionji:
Hmmph. Well, I'm Student Council Vice President,
captain of the kendo team,
and hero of the campus,
Saionji Kyouichi...
so what's with this rude attitude?
Women should act modestly... like Anthy, for instance.

D-ko:
...but it seemed like Anthy hated you.

Saionji:
This is exactly why laymen are so troublesome.
That was simply the shyness of a modest woman.

D-ko:
...really?

http://img26.imageshack.us/img26/5943/00000070l.png

Female Guest:
Aaah!

D-ko:
Ah!

http://img119.imageshack.us/img119/6109/00000076.png

D-ko:
It... didn't fall?
I thought it fell towards me, but...
A hand?
Someone caught the candlestick.
That hand... it can't be...?


http://img240.imageshack.us/img240/2605/00000068.png

D-ko:
Uh... thank you.

Saionji:
It's no big deal.

D-ko:
Hey, your hand... isn't it burned?
You should go chill it quickly!

Saionji:
I said it was no big deal!
More importantly, you should discipline that monkey more harshly.

[scene break]

D-ko:
I'm in trouble...
I thought those two would totally stand out,
but I don't see them anywhere!
Ah, there's Anthy!
...but where's she going?
Anyway, now that I've found her, I should chase after her!


Guy:
Hey, you. Wanna chat a bit over there?

D-ko:
Huh? Who are these guys?

Guy:
The wind feels really nice up on the balcony.
What happened to your mask? Did you lose it?

D-ko:
What's this... is he trying to pick me up?
I thought balls like this were for gentlemen and ladies.
...darn, I lost track of Anthy!

Excuse me, please let me through.

Guy:
Aww, don't say that!
C'mon, let's go!

D-ko:
Man, he's obstinate!

http://ohtori.nu/gallery/var/resizes/Game/Screenshots/Game_Cap_031.jpg?m=1380882737

Juri:
Move it!

D-ko:
Look at those long curls!
But it totally suits her.
She has a good figure,
but she's also handsome.
(It's like straight out of the ancient nobility!)
She has kind of a severe feeling about her,
but I guess she's also a member of the Student Council?


Guy:
[quietly, to others] Hey, this is bad. It's Arisugawa Juri...

Other Guy:
Let's get out of here.

D-ko:
Ah, free at last!
...but I still lost sight of Anthy.

Ah, thank you very much!
My name is Kageno D-ko.

Juri:
Kageno?
Then you're the new resident of the East Dorm.

D-ko:
That's right!
But how did you...

Juri:
You're quite famous among the members of the Student Council.

D-ko:
...famous? What do you mean?

Juri:
You'll understand sooner or later.

D-ko:
What should I do, I've got to talk about something!
A topic... a topic...


D-ko:
Umm, Arisugawa-sempai,
you're really strong and cool, aren't you?
I want to become just like you!

Hah, bet you thought we'd have a choice there, didn't you? Well, clearly, fawning over Juri is the only possible choice.

Juri:
I'm... not that strong.

D-ko:
Huh? But...

Juri:
I'm always thinking that I want to become strong, but...

D-ko:
Sempai, why do you look sad?
She's clasping something by her chest.
A pendant? No a locket...


Juri:
If you'd like, please come visit the Fencing Hall.
Becoming physically strong helps one gain confidence.

D-ko:
Uh, sure! Thank you very much.

(she leaves)

D-ko:
Arisugawa Juri-san, huh?
As a fellow woman, (_________)

Okay, look. I'm trying to translate this thing as quickly and casually as possible, in order to maintain good posting momentum and keep this game fun for everyone involved (including me). However, I'm really not sure how I'm supposed to interpret this line. Therefore, please select your own preferred meaning from the following options.

"As a fellow woman..."
A "...I really admire her!"
B "...I aspire to be her!"
C "...I shouldn't let myself be attracted to her."
D "...I totally want to jump her bones!"

The line we're looking at is 同じ女として憧れちゃうな, in case anyone wants to help me out. Then again, perhaps you'd prefer to savor the ambiguity.

D-ko:
She's strong, beautiful, cool...
But, I'm a little bit concerned about that locket by her chest.
It's the kind that has a lover's picture in it, right?


http://img106.imageshack.us/img106/1034/00000071.png

In related news, we just got a point with Juri, but I'm not clear whether it's because of any of our previous choices (rejecting Touga, confronting Saionji), or whether it's just because we're a cute, earnest schoolgirl with purple hair.

(sound of fawning girls)

Voice:
Young lady... would you kindly dance with me?

http://img115.imageshack.us/img115/3641/00000069.png

D-ko:
Huh? Isn't this the person I met at the Fencing Hall ?

Chigusa:
Come.

http://ohtori.nu/gallery/var/resizes/Game/Screenshots/Game_Cap_033.jpg?m=1380882737

Chigusa:
Hey, you.
Do you know about the Rose Bride?

D-ko:
Huh?

Chigusa:
To obtain her is to obtain the Power to Revolutionize the World.

D-ko:
...and what does that mean?

http://img119.imageshack.us/img119/7947/00000075.png

D-ko:
...that ring!
Are you... a member of the Student Council?

Chigusa:
Duelists aren't limited to members of the Student Council.
The current victor, Tenjou Utena, isn't one either.

D-ko:
Ah...

Chigusa:
But... she'll only be engaged to the Rose Bride for a little longer.

D-ko:
What do you mean? Surely you're not...

Chigusa:
Soon, I will duel Tenjou Utena. And she'll lose.
And then...

D-ko:
This person's eyes... they're somehow really scary!
...why...?


Chigusa:
...you will dissapear.

D-ko:
What?

http://img119.imageshack.us/img119/6109/00000076.png
(The lights go out. Cue girlish screams, panic, a little crashing.)

Utena:
Are you okay?

D-ko:
...yes. Thank you.

Juri:
...but surely nobody would have the nerve to obstruct one of the Student Council's dances.

Miki:
(I have to disagree with you, Juri-san!)
This is a clear act of opposition to the Student Council.

Touga:
Not so fast, Miki. We haven't determined that yet.

Saionji:
Hey, transfer student. What's that stuck to your back?

D-ko:
Huh?

http://img26.imageshack.us/img26/7692/00000078.png
http://img119.imageshack.us/img119/9755/00000079.png
TO THE ONE ENGAGED:
I WILL BE WAITING IN THE DUELING AREA ON THE 25TH.

http://img26.imageshack.us/img26/1986/00000082.png

And it's an eyecatch, albeit an ominously silent one! Now, unfortunately, although this isn't a choice juncture, I'm going to have to stop here for now, because I don't have time to continue. I'll resume translation work in a few days. Don't let that stop you from commenting, though! This was an exciting section, and I'm curious to hear people's thoughts.

I'm a neophyte at this stuff, but looks to me like it's literally "(I) totally will do and yearn for the same woman," or figuratively "I'm going to be just like her," so I vote B.  emot-wink  In context the -chau bit seems like it's taking on its positive sense, so I don't think it's C, and it seems like 同じ女 would be a weird phrasing if it were Juri herself we were yearning for. emot-smile

Well, of course. What possible reason could you have for not? ;) I could see a possible case for cowering in fear, maybe.

D "...I totally want to jump her bones!"

Considering our heroine's name, this is the only obvious choice.

Miki:

This is a clear act of opposition to the Student Council.

Are you a conspiracy theorist on the side, Miki? Nothing is "clear" about lights going out. Could've been a power failure or someone in the back accidentally hitting a switch. You're just lucky that you're right in this case, blue boy. emot-tongue

So naive... I may not have had any influence over what she did with Saionji, but why do you think that D-ko is acting like Shiori to the point of using the same words that Shiori used to describe Juri in episode 17?

It was all my doing! With D-ko acting just like Shiori, Juri will continue to weaken, and before long, the option to "Put it in" will appear. school-devil
