3rd Touhou M-1 Grand Prix TewiKourin Manzai #1 [English Subs]
December 20, 2009
Hard subbed this time! I figured it out. I'm awesome. Audio's a bit quiet, though. Turn your volume up.
Anyways, thanks to my friends Shiri and Silferras for providing the translation, both by ear and from the Chinese subs respectively. Timing and subtitling was done by me. Video (along with the rest of the 3rd Grand Prix, which we'll get around to subbing eventually!) was provided by Bulz33b.
This is only the first of the 3rd GP TewiKourin videos. They go up against Miko Miko Spark in the finals. Wind Girl has already been translated (search for it), so we'll do Yuyuko and Youmu's manzai next before we do the finals.
Paris Fashion Collection ("pari-kore") and "what's this" (nani kore) are similar in pronunciation.
"Becoming a main character is a big incentive for anyone"- One of the prizes for the Manzai is becoming a main character. SPOILER: This is probably why Miko Miko Spark wins in the end. Protagonist hax, as Shiri calls it.
"It'll be over in 26 stories"- There are 26 chapters of Curiosities in Lotus Asia, the book that Rinnosuke stars in rather than any of the games.
Mon- An old currency in Japan from about 1,336 to 1,870. Tewi is speaking about 'strings of 1,000 coins' or 'kanmon' but we'll leave it as mon for the sake of simplicity.
Pascal's Calculator- Check wikipedia, one of the first calculators ever invented. Makes sense that Rinnosuke would get his hands on it.
"This bust is 83 cm."- Pa- *knife*
Bibiri and Bibibi- Bibiri is the word for shivering, often in fear. There's a "Bibibi" in the old (around the 50's) manga "GeGeGe no Kitaro", curiously popularizing folklore creatures such as Youkai in post-war Japan. Nezumi Otoko is one of the characters, also known as "Rat Man". Crazy pun.
Neko Musume- Cat Girl from GeGeGe no Kitaro.
Riceball/Cash Register/Microwave- Rice ball (onigiri) is heated up in a microwave (renji), sounding much like a cash register (reji).
Pichuu~n- Sound effect for crashing into a bullet curtain. Learn to graze.
Tewi's 'What's- You might notice her 'nani' sometimes sounds more like 'Nanya'. She's imitating Neko Musume and her Kansai dialect.
"Healing Lily"- Futari wa Pretty Cure reference? Or so we wildly guess.
Ching~- Look at Mannosuke's eyes. And then where the register hits him.
