Diary of a Butler Chapter 10: No Hero—translated by dahlys

Dear Father,

My master is a hero. However, I finally understand your admonishment. No matter what kind of person the young master is, my duty has not changed. In the coming days, I will take good care of the young master and be a dutiful butler. Please do not worry.

I helped the young master to his room. The moment he lay on his bed, he fell asleep. As I covered him with a blanket, I thought about what Mr. An Te Qi had said. He mentioned that the young master would be a little absent-minded in the next few days, and that I should cook a lot of high-calorie food for him and let him do nothing but eat and sleep. After a few days, he would slowly recover.

“Charles!” The young master suddenly woke up.

“Yes?”

LSK Characters Deserve English Nicknames Too

posted in: Blog | 14

Ever thought that the characters’ names didn’t translate quite right to English? I mean, here is the default list of nicknames:

太阳骑士(格里西亚) – Grisia Sun
暴风骑士(希欧) – Ceo Storm (死喔 – Deatheo)
绿叶骑士(艾尔梅瑞) – Elmairy Leaf (艾梅 – Elmy, 草莓 – Strawberry)
大地骑士(乔葛) – Georgo Earth
白云骑士(帝摩斯) – Demos Cloud
烈火骑士(奇克斯) – Chikus Blaze (奇怪廝 – Freakus)
审判骑士(雷瑟) – Lesus Judgment
寒冰骑士(伊希岚) – Ecilan Ice (稀爛 – Stelan, 稀巴爛 – Wastelan, 嵐 – Lan)
孤月骑士(维瓦尔) – Vival Moon
刃金骑士(莱卡) – Laica Metal (萊姆 – Lime, 史萊姆 – Slime)
坚石骑士(艾维斯) – Aivis Stone
魔狱骑士(罗兰) – Roland Hell

And most of them sound less than suitable. Well, I finally remembered how I translated the LSK characters’ names before I joined PR, and the list looked something like this:

(note: nicknames are mostly based off how they really sound in Chinese, English names might sound totally off)

Grisia – Girly-sia
Ceo – Chief Executive Officer
Elmairy – I am Mary
Georgo – Choco(late)
Demos – Demons
Chikus – Chickens
Lesus – Laser
Ecilan – Easy lah (means very easy in my country’s slang)
Vival – Wage war
Laica – Like cars
Aivis – Elvis (Presley)
Roland- Matthiola incana [Chinese name for this plant is 紫罗兰(prn. Zi luo lan)]

Other characters deserve nicknames too.

Mike (the Son of the God of War): Mickey (Mouse)
Austin: Aston (Villa) [A football club]
Neo: Nya~
Aldrizzt: I, twister
Adair: You’re tired
Jacques: Jackass
Vidar: (Darth) Vader
Tyler: The loon
Elaro: Ero-kun

and the Grand Winner of All Nicknames

Phil Lucen = Failure Loser

which would make Lesus’s original name Laser Loser.

So, what do you think their nicknames should be?

The Legend of Sun Knight Side Stories 12: “When Teacher Wasn’t Yet Teacher Part One”

The Legend of Sun Knight Side Story: When Teacher Wasn’t Yet Teacher

Original novel in Chinese by: 御 我 (Yu Wo)


“When Teacher Wasn’t Yet Teacher Part One” – translated by dahlys

Chasel heard the sound of hurried footsteps coming toward him. He looked up slightly as he finished fixing his appearance and decided to dress himself first.

Is there a need to be so excited this early in the morning?

He had just slipped on his shirt when the door was slammed open. Chasel started to wonder whether his projected image was a failure or not. Even though he was the Judgment Knight, this wasn’t the first time his door had been kicked open. His comrades did not seem to regard him as they should the imposing Judgment Knight.

However, they had only recently been promoted, and there would be plenty of time in the future for his comrades to get to know him better.

No hurry.

Fahr1 rushed into his room anxiously. He said only two words, “It’s Neo!”

Female Warrior Prologue Volume 1: Light and Shadow

Original novel in Chinese by: 御 我 (Yu Wo)


Prologue: In a Flash – translated by dahlys

If you could return to the day you met, what would the two of you do?

“Ah! Fate is unfathomable like that. Never would anyone be able to guess that such an ordinary encounter could lead to such an extraordinary future. Although our encounter that day contributed to a resplendent future, I sometimes find myself reminiscing about ordinary days. If time could be rewound, would I choose to step foot into that tavern where we met… Ah, no! Even if that tavern had not existed, we would definitely have met anyway, because our encounter was indispensable fate!”

–Bard

“With my blade, I’ll cut the tavern, destiny, and this bastard in half all at the same time.”

–Red Cloak
