Unlimited Translation Works

Check it out, guys

kusion vectored something for me that I found on one of the ~boorus some time back and have been using as my avatar ever since, and I had a print shop put it on a shirt. It’s awesome. Photo after the break.
That reminds me. This is going to be my godly weeaboo shirt (I’ll stoically refuse to translate the runes if I ever wear it elsewhere, it’d creep people out to no end) for Connichi. I’ve never been to an anime convention before, but I felt this would be a good opportunity to meet up with some other fansubbers. Daiz will be there. You know, the guy who is trying to kill anime. Other attendees will include, well, mostly harmless Commie peons to be honest (Kokawa & yaffi). Card is coming from America! If that ain’t something.
I’m given to understand cardslash02 is going to run some kind of potentially live blog about it just like she will about AX, so expect stuff. Photos & Videos both a maybe.
…I have to admit I only wanted to parade my shirt, the convention thing was just an excuse to make the post seem like it actually had content relevant to public interests. Still, if you happen to plan on being there for Connichi, I suppose it interests me somewhat.
Now, shirt glory (now with working image, no thanks to imgur):

It says ?????????? ~ “I’d die for Saya”.

  7. justinefremlouw on June 1, 2011 at 10:53 pm said:

    yep, it says something like “I could die for ___”
    can’t figure out the first two kanji characters for the name of (probably) some animu char

    Awesome shirt.

  9. blank on June 1, 2011 at 11:06 pm said:

    The name is Saya, the “heroine” of Saya no Uta. It’s a Nitroplus+ horror VN.

  10. Romdeau on June 1, 2011 at 11:24 pm said:

    Overrated VN is overrated.

  11. Break on June 1, 2011 at 11:40 pm said:

    first: saya shirt is awesome. second: ill probably be on the connichi, i think tis awesome that soemone from UBW is gonna come! i didnt know you were german, or are you just coming over because of the other subbers/the fact that always soemone from GAINAx is there?

  12. Rawr on June 1, 2011 at 11:43 pm said:

    I shall look for someone wearing that shirt during AX.

  13. a707 on June 1, 2011 at 11:45 pm said:

    Fucking Urobuchi. Why didn’t you give Saya a true happy end?

  14. Kyhz on June 1, 2011 at 11:50 pm said:

    >happy ending
    There’s no way Saya could have ended well. Considering the tone of it, one of the endings was actually pretty happy. Relatively.

  15. TomoyaX on June 1, 2011 at 11:57 pm said:

    I’ve never heard of this VN, but today I browsed vndb a little, saw this one and decided to play it.
    And then, I went here for some random reason.

  16. derpes on June 2, 2011 at 12:16 am said:

    gimme that ;_;

  17. spoot on June 2, 2011 at 1:16 am said:

    I want that shirt.

  18. Name on June 2, 2011 at 1:36 am said:

    What’s the reference behind Daiz + CrunchyRoll/MX Media?

  19. SnU FTW on June 2, 2011 at 3:02 am said:

    I want it~ Saya is love~

  20. Leon-Gun on June 2, 2011 at 3:55 am said:

    Daiz is the guys from Underwater I believe. He’s just been in the middle of a lot of e-drama it seems. I tend to ignore that crap so I have no other info, besides the fact he’s very rude to anyone that holds a different opinion or points out one of his mistakes.

  21. amen665 on June 2, 2011 at 4:26 am said:

    Daiz is a legend.
    btw…… nice shirt, but where’s the face? lol… it’s cool. i would totally not wear that in public. ^^

  22. Oh, nice vector. I myself have yet to make a successful vector ahaha. I personally would totally wear that in public.

  23. Stilzkin on June 2, 2011 at 6:56 am said:

    hmm.. that’s not realy far away, i might join the convention. i’ll look for someone with that shirt

  24. Matteas on June 2, 2011 at 7:30 am said:

    That’s a really nice vector job. Saya is so lovely.

  25. Soul on June 2, 2011 at 7:30 am said:

    Oh nice t-shirt. Haven’t played saya yet though.

  26. Sorry but Connichi is the Convention of fucking Kodex(code) sympathizer….
    German isn’t that good at fansubbing, they just steal from Eng Fansubgroups,
    and when the anime is out in germany(worst case), they’ll stop releasing it…
    And that’s their Kodex(code)…
    Trust me I’m german, I hate my fansub scene. English is much better.

  27. ??^5 on June 2, 2011 at 9:01 am said:

    Oh wow, daiz going? I might attend myself.

  28. Gaku on June 2, 2011 at 9:07 am said:

    @Skyleo: most nonenglish groups do that. Besides, it’s not like anyone could stop them from using someone else’s softsubs (hint: HorribleSubs rip at Funi issue among other thing – cough, Tormaid, cough, being asshurt when he has to crop commercials from gg’s rels).
    And there is nothing wrong with stopping releases when the title is officially avaible in your country, just stop being a neet. It’s just their choice and they aren’t the only ones that do that (a.f.k. being one of the classic examples).

  29. CaptainKing on June 2, 2011 at 9:07 am said:

    Daiz is the guy who accused elitistfags of delaying a totally voluntary release that costs them thousands in equipment costs to acquire for a bit cash, which they did, and Doki for supplying the cash out of donations, which they didn’t-Jecht, a guy who just happens to release under Doki, paid out of his own pocket for “madlols” and basically just to piss of guys like Daiz. Daiz then proceeded to whine like such a little bitch about it that EF up an quit-for everyone but gg I believe, thus no more super quick transport streams.
    Also, nice shirt.

  30. @CaptainKing
    Please do not spread false rumours. That’s not how any of it went down. Also Daiz is one of our team so please do not slander him with false accusations, it’s not cool at all. The only thing he is responsible for was bring up the fact that Doki were sabotaging other groups. Everything else gg did on their own accord. They already owned the equipment prior to manufacturing ElitistFags and the whole quitting was part of their masterplan. Everything was a “manufactured troll”.

    Can you share this vector image?

  32. captainKing on June 2, 2011 at 12:46 pm said:

    Sorry ar, didn’t mean to insult that much, looks like I’ve gone and gotten the wrong end of the stick. Know however I very much appreciate you posting that without just having my post deleted right off the bat. Very rare on these internets, that kind of behaviour.

  33. boingman on June 2, 2011 at 1:49 pm said:

    Does that mean that you’re german, fnord? Why else would you go to Connichi or is it that big of a convention?

  34. fnord on June 2, 2011 at 2:01 pm said:

    I’m German.

  35. Bobby on June 2, 2011 at 2:04 pm said:

    Shouldn’t it be “tame ni” instead of “tame nara”?
    fnord: Nope.

  36. SayaismyWaifu on June 2, 2011 at 2:26 pm said:

    You glorious bastard this just got saved into my Saya folder.

  37. anonymous on June 2, 2011 at 3:44 pm said:

    >mx media dropping honorifics
    i see that part as an improvement really.
    of course there’ll be 10+ faggots who will start going with their usual “english honorifics not conveying same feelings etc etc” mantras, for which nobody but a small vocal minority cares anyway.

  38. Soul on June 2, 2011 at 4:57 pm said:

    @ar You know well it was Daiz fault that they ragequitted. GG are jerks, but they guy’s a dick.
    Didn’t know he was part of UTW, that’s kinda dissapointing..

  39. @Soul
    You are kidding right? They didn’t ragequit lol, they stopped on their own accord because they got sick of the troll and felt it was time to end it.

  40. Lootskin on June 2, 2011 at 6:36 pm said:

    Saya no Uta was great, really. I downloaded the soundtrack right after finishing all the routes. I’m going to use it on my Cthulhu-roleplaying nights.
    Hopefully no-one will find out where it’s from >_> Not that it can get any nerdier than roleplaying tho <_<

  41. Break on June 2, 2011 at 6:37 pm said:

    @fnord is your friend who did the shirt also german? if he is, could you maybe give me his business adress or something, i would like something similar, too; am willing to pay

  42. fnord on June 2, 2011 at 7:38 pm said:

    The image is public and taken from danbooru. kusion made it nice. The print shop who put it on the shirt is just some normal print shop.

  43. enigami on June 2, 2011 at 10:31 pm said:

    i want that shirt, you should make it publicly available 😛

  44. yaku on June 2, 2011 at 11:02 pm said:

    i’ll remember that shirt. >D coz i’ll be attending connichi together with a friend and we’re going to have a table at the doujinshi market. so if you happen to pass by our table, i’ll make sure you buy something. XD

  45. Break on June 3, 2011 at 2:52 am said:

    @fnord ah, okay; thanks for the info. as much a si love the vn, i never really looked for artwork of it online…

  46. Furuba-tan on June 3, 2011 at 1:02 pm said:

    you will get raped at the con~

  47. UnLucky on June 4, 2011 at 1:16 am said:

    Oh so that’s what your avatar was
    and I love Daiz, I want to meet him some day

  48. EDICT and Nelson both have these for core meanings:
    ? = Sand
    ? = ? (literally, a question mark)
    Now how the hell are you going to explain to
    anybody why you would die for the benefit of ‘SAND?’
    ??? ?? ????

  49. kidlat020 on June 6, 2011 at 8:20 pm said:

    Aside from om-reading and kun-reading of kanji, there’s actually a 3rd reading for kanji, called “name reading” or something.
    anyway, those 2 kanji is read as Saya. Though I’ll probably never understand why.

  50. Geshtar on June 7, 2011 at 12:29 am said:

    Nice, if you want to meet other (mostly german) fansubbers, just be in time at the traditional fansubber photo meeting at noon, saturday, just at the big stairs in front of the city hall!
    We’ll be the guys with the purikura machines on our shirts 😀 Cya there!

  51. @kidlat020: just pulling somebody’s chain 😉 A diehard otaku at Connichi may pick out ?? as nanori (actually jinmeiyou) for ‘Saya’ but who else in the real world would? “You’d die for SAND then you question why you’d die for it?” they might say (if they learned the characters).
    if interested see -> http://www.20000-names.com/female_japanese_names.htm for the current list of female Japanese names
    ??? ?? ????

  52. Oh.My.God. I want this shirt! So jealous ;w;
