I AM CURRENTLY NOT TAKING FANFIC PROMPTS! THANK YOU. Also, please don't send me asks about Alice or Elliot from PH. I honestly don't like either one and would prefer to not discuss their characters all that much. Thank you.

I realized this needed to be updated. So, I am a 24 year old cis-white-female and I currently work in Japan. I am teaching English to Japanese youth and am currently located in Toyama. I like a variety of things, and every once in a while fanfics and translations will pop up! I try to tag for spoilers as well as I can, but do be weary of them.

Hey! : ) Here are Part One and Part Two. Part Three is under the Read More due to spoilers and lengths. It is rather short, because I decided to make Part Four very long, with Part Five being fairly short as well. I didn’t include pictures this time (they were too hard to take and ripping the pages out was a bit too problematic this time for me), but when RAWs/Chinese scans pop up I will include them. For now, please enjoy the translation! :D

So I’m back at episode 1 of Free! ES and I wanted to highlight this exchange that not many people seem to remember:

(This is when Haru and Rin are about to race next to each other.)

Rin: Since we can’t race in a relay today, this showdown is between you and me.

Haru: I don’t care about my time.

Rin: Are you still saying stuff like that? *pause* Even if you don’t care about winning or times, you think no one can beat you in water, don’t you?

Haru doesn’t deny this, and the surprise that flickers in his eyes right before his face hardens implies that Rin is spot on. We also see during and after the race that Haru does, indeed, care very much about beating Rin. And that dialogue, for me, sums up the crux of Haru’s feelings towards swimming. He says he doesn’t care about winning or times, but he is very competitive - and has always been so, ever since he was young - because he believes he is the best in the water that he loves so much. He has always loved the thrill of racing and winning and being the best. Thus his decision to go pro is not a 180 degree personality change, nor shitty and fanservicing character development. The only disputable issue is the speed at which he came to this realization - it probably would’ve been better had KyoAni placed the declaration of Haru’s new dream in the next episode. But then again, we don’t know what’s in store in the last episode of the season - so let’s wait and see!

One thing I really love about Rin and his Australian parents is how they give Haruka his space before dinner. They don’t sit him down and drill him with questions (Lori and Russell probably understand his personality from all the things Rin told them over the years) but instead let him de-stress by getting to know Winnie the dog first.  Rin is probably inside catching up with his Australian parents, but they seemed to let Haruka alone to get used to the surroundings first.

Haruka was clearly (and understandably) very nervous about visiting with people that spoke English (since English is his worst subject) but when they all sit down to dinner together, Lori and Russell were so gentle when speaking to Haruka, even re-phrasing questions so that Haruka would understand better on his own.

And Lori used some Japanese (and mackerel) to make Haruka feel more comfortable at the table. Even though it was one Japanese word, I think the familiarity of “saba” was enough for him to feel a little more part of the conversation.

They never rushed him to understand what they were saying, or made any comments on his accent or the amount of Japanese he knew, instead they just patiently communicated with him, and I think that probably helped make him feel more at ease, and possibly in a small way helped raise his self-esteem later on in the episode.

I’m also really glad that Rin didn’t enable Haruka by translating everything, but trusted his Australian parents to communicate in a way Haruka could understand.

Though there were also times they allowed Rin to translate to let Rin filter how much of his crush for Haruka would show.

This homestay part was really important to me because I’ve been to quite a few homestay dinners over the years (both in Japanese and Spanish-speaking households) and I’ve encountered many different types of hosts and the ones I’ve always felt more comfortable with and learned the most from are the ones that acted exactly the way Lori and Russell did. Bless Rin and his Australian parents.

This is funny. Someone in Japan booked the hotel room that Rin and Haru stayed at in Australia!  It seems like the hotel staff watched the episode. 
It would be awesome if in the future they decorated the room with Haru and Rin stuff.

This isn’t right. You’re supposed to be with me!

The actual definition of what some guys think when the girl says “no”.

"OMG I did this and that for YOU, you must date me!"

Hell no. If I don’t like you, I won’t date you.

This movie is fucking golden.

YES CAN WE TALK ABOUT THIS MOVIE

Megamind has the ultimate example of a “nice guy”, Hal, who liked Roxanne - and he was clear about it. He “complimented” several things to her in the beginning, which guess what - were not flattering at all, but downright creepy, so really, it was no wonder Roxanne didn’t like him.

But after he gets his superpowers, he expects her to - he expects to be rewarded for being the “good guy”, despite the fact that he hasn’t really done anything for her. When she rejects him and later finds out that she had dated Megamind for a time, he’s furious that she would date the “bad guy” when he is the “good guy”.

Yet despite Megamind being “bad” and Hal being “good”, it’s Megamind who respects what she wants - when she told him to back off, he backed off, and then later apologized, while Hal was legit going to kill her for rejecting him. So really, who is the good guy?

I have seriously never seen a more frightening movie villain than Hal.

Hal is basically what every single MRA and ‘Nice Guy’ in the world would be like if they ever got superpowers…

Here’s Part Two! Part One can be found here. I can’t take pictures this time and I don’t think any full set of RAWs are out yet (when they do pop up online though, I will edit in links for all my Retrace 98 translation posts), but in the meantime please enjoy the translation! It can be found under the Read More due to spoilers and length.

I googled “Australian sex slang” and I’m still not 100% positive if what I wrote actually has any meaning. except for willy. i know willy

Hey everyone! Here is the first part of the Retrace 98 translation! Sorry for taking so long to get it up. Yesterday I ended up being exhausted, but I just got about 9 hours of sleep, so I should be awesome and fine for the rest of today.

Sadly, I can’t do pictures this time. I tried and I ended up ripping one of the pages badly! >< (It’s okay though, because I’ll buy the volume when it comes out, but still…) Also, since this chapter is the first one in the anthology (because it has a color page splash) it’s harder to take pictures of the pages on right side. So yeah, no pictures this time, I’m sorry!

Regardless of all that, I hope you enjoy this translation! : D It can be found under the Read More due to spoilers and length.
