ZOMG! Some of the other Mac comics are quite...

...perverted! Anyway, keep up the good work!

*thinks*

Wow...I've been posting a lot! And to think I found out about the OS-tans in May 2006!

rdhdtwns

Pitkin!!

I got it translated.

MAC祭ã,Šã¾ãŸä¸ç™º
爆弾ã,,不発

The Mac matsuri is again a misfire.
The bomb is also a misfire.

不発 = misfire.. that was the only translation i could find in the dictionary. .-.;;
So cute it\'s deadly!

Keh!  You ain't seen the half of it!  ^__^'
[or maybe you have, which is why you said that.... -v-]

Anyway, now you see why I'd love to bring the Mac Manga to the masses!  ^v^

YAY!  It's Codi-san!  ^V^

That's from one of the pics at the gallery, right?

Translation sounds about right (poor Mac-chans can't get their festival.  ^^')

And in case anyone is interested,...

MAC祭ã,Šã¾ãŸä¸ç™º  

Likely sounds like this:

MAC matsuri mata fuhatsu

Anyway, this is the last bit of work I can invest in the Mac Manga until about a week later.

Page 1 is not only full of kana/kanji, but the artist's handwriting seems less than average.  ^^;
Before we can even begin to translate, we have to know what's being WRITTEN first.  

I tried my best annotating the text, but without proper recognition of complicated kanji and with this dismal handwriting, I could only go so far.  My Xubuntu machine has some really good Japanese language apps that were of big help (especially KanjiPad), but again would've definitely helped if the writing were legible.  ^^;

Here goes nothing....  -___-

C-Chan added the following  5 minutes after last message :

Gist of it is that Toshiaki is asking to draw Sonata-san, she agrees if its done in the nude, and begins rambling on about either a) how beautiful she'd look or b) how much of an expert she is with nude modelling, or c) all of the above.
Before wondering how gorgeous the painting would look like, she seems to realize that Toshiaki isn't saying anything.  Realizing he's being a pervert again, she beats the crap out of him and storms off muttering in disgust.

NewYinzer

You know, this reminds me of...

*represses urge to compare everything to Love Hina*

...a certain scene from...

*tries really hard not to compare everything ecchi to Love Hina*

...a very funny Anime show I was watching...

*resolve begins to weaken*

...I can't quite remember the name...

*starts shaking*

...but it was ecchi, and was called...

*resolve breaks down*

...Mahoromatic! Bet ya didn't see that one coming!

*starts laughing*

Do you see the picture of Steve Wozniak in the background?

C-Chan

BWAHAHAHA!!  Kinda figured that was him, but wasn't too sure.  ^__^

Is that his face on this portrait too....?


Aurora Borealis

No, that one is Steve Jobs

C-Chan

Takes a Mac fan to know a Mac fan.... -v-'

XD AHAHAHA~! ThAt's why I love the 4koma! Best OStan 4koma ever! (on obvious reasons!)  ;010


QuoteQuote from : C-Chan

Yep, definitely stagnant.  ^^'

Oh well, when you want something done right, you've got to do it yourself.  -v-

Probably getting ahead of myself since I'll be drop-dead busy for the next week or so.  But I definitely want to start now, at least with the Mac Manga title page:



After the 20th, I'll try to give page 1 a shot....



Wish granted to give a shot at Waka... http://wakachan.org/os/src/1163409738207.jpg

thanks for this a lot!  ;010

I didn't know you can upload pics w/o registration on Waka :(

Pitkin

The comic at hand right now looks pretty difficult, but I'll take a look at it, in case I could get something out of it; seeing C-Chan's good summary of the main idea, though, I believe my potential translation will only awkwardness into the spoken lines. ^^;

*squints*  Dear GAWDS!  @o@
So OS9-kun looks innocent and a good boy and stuff, but is, in actuality, a Mafioso!  ^v^

QuoteXD AHAHAHA~! ThAt's why I love the 4koma! Best OStan 4koma ever! (on obvious reasons!)  


Hehe,... well I'm no Mac user, but also consider them to have the best 4Koma.  Well drawn and outrageously funny, and also perverted enough to cater to the perverts.  ^___^'
Love the character designs for OS9 and OSx-tan.

Huh, you didn't know that?
Eons ago, I was inches away from uploading my first Amiga pic (without registering), but thanks to I-forget-which-pic, I saw first hand how easily their "Toshiakis" slaughtered pics that weren't to their liking.  So that (and a few other incidents since then) is what turned me off from their board completely, but as I clarified before on Topicless, feel free to put stuff their if you want to.

I don't care if they make fun of my translation, since I know it's bad.  But promise me you'll kick their butts if they start making fun of how I drew in the words....  `v'

No problem and thank you Pitkin.  ^__^
However, if it really is hard, we can always forget about it and switch to Page 2 which is simpler.  -v-

Japanese lessons are going, so I might be able to provide passable reinforcement when I return.  ^__^

It looks like the Mac Manga is going well. This crazy thread which I founded has finally lived up to my original vision, even though I did not do any translating. The admins seemed to have cleaned up the forums, which I find is a good thing. I'm currently trying to get through the last pile of work before the end of the trimester. Expect posting to pick up around thanksgiving.

NewYinzer Out.

Bwahaha!  ^v^
If not for the super-ultra-kawaii DR-DOS AVI that Kildall-san would approve and I will worship you for, I could almost swear all this flying around makes you look like James Bond....  Or Di Caprio in that aviator movie... thingie.... Ã,¬ï¼¿Ã,¬  

But yeah, I guess I accidentally got involved in this thread quite a bit.  Translating manga is good practice for Japanese learning -- I've see the kanji for "watashi"ãâ,¬â,¬Ã¯Â¼Ë†Ã§Â§ÂÃ¯Â¼â€°
and "nan" (何) so often now that they're becoming second-hand.  -v-'

Before I restarted work on the Mac Manga, I figured a little warm-up after a one-week hiatus was in order.  Check out them apples... or should I say, 'them Windows'....



Should look familiar if you've been at Waka or Niijura lately....  -v-

Not that I can verify if this is an honest-to-goodness translation, but that's what Pitkin-san and Codi-san are here for.  ^__^

The original for comparison is at Waka or Niijura -- I'd direct link, but not sure if it'll work.  -v-

NewYinzer

I have seen that comic before! It was on Waka a few days ago. Anyway, good job translating!

Thank yinz.  ^__^
Posted it up on Wak as well, just to make sure know one here assumes I'm trying to bar them from posting there.  -v-

Doubt anything will come of it, though, but oh well at least I did my part.... -v-

QuoteLM: hit computer with hamemr
Yeah, I wish those particular types did that more often.  ^^;
