Hi! Whenever you have the time, could you let me know if Torafusa said "demon" or "demons" in the latest chapter when he saw Natsu and Gajeel in their dual-element modes? Mangastream has him say, "They're friggin' demons!" while Mangapanda translates his line as, "A demon..." Or maybe he's not saying "demon" at all, but something else! Thank you!
I only have a partial transcript from a Japanese reader to go by for now, and according to that Torafusa said 悪魔 (akuma).
悪魔 (akuma) = demon or demons
悪魔たち (akumatachi) = demons
Nouns in Japanese don’t usually have a plural form. You can add たち (tachi) to nouns that describe living things to make it plural, but it’s not a necessity.
The difference in MS and MP’s translation is the result of the different translator’s interpretation of that line. I personally think that Torafusa is referring to both Natsu and Gajeel as demons, since Gajeel and Natsu were getting pretty equal panel time once they started fighting and it doesn’t look as though one of them is getting singled out or anything.
I’d like to see CR’s take on this!
How to access the Fairy Tail Brave Guild game
Fairy Tail Brave Guild is a web-based game. There is no game-specific app. You can access the game from here using (1) your cellphone and (2) a Japan proxy. Google for a Japan proxy if you don’t already have one, and set up your phone accordingly.
You can also access the game using the QR code below:
If you’re not accessing the site using a Japan proxy, you’ll get an error message like this:
Sorry, this game is unavailable in your region
And if you’re trying to access it using the browser on your computer instead of that on your cellphone, you’ll get an error message like this:
This app cannot be installed on your device.
An alternate way of accessing the game is through the Gree app, which is available in both Apple’s app store and the Google play store. You can download the app from your country’s app store if it has it; if not, you’ll have to get it though the Japan app store. Set up your account on the app as how you would normally.
You’ll probably notice that you can’t find Fairy Tail Brave Guild or any other Japanese games in the “Games” section. To make the game appear, go to Settings>Profile>Living in. Change the country to Japan, and the area to anything that’s in the list. (If you do not see the option for Japan, activate your proxy and go back to the same page. The option should appear now.) You should then be able to see all the Japan-only games. Look for フェアリーテイル-ブレイブギルド- under “Role Playing” to enter the game.
If you’re accessing the game through your phone’s browser, you’ll have to activate your proxy every time you want to get into the game. You can, however, switch if off once you get in.
You don’t need to activate the proxy if you’re accessing the game via the Gree app.
Remember that the game is entirely in Japanese, so you’ll just have to guess your way around if you can’t read Japanese.
From 『FAIRY TV 妖精の尻尾情報局』 #1
When asked how the atmosphere is like during the recording of the anime, Kakihara actually drew the sitting positions of the cast while they’re doing the voice recording for the show. How this is relevant to the question I don’t know, but since he bothered to draw it out, here’s how it looks like.
Mirajane’s voice actor either sits at Carla’s or Ichiya’s side (he can’t remember), while Arcadios’ voice actor usually waits outside the studio until it’s his turn to record.
