Panzers und /ak/ und garupans. Also movie spoilers probably.
Maho, always Maho, something about onee-sans that are so wonderful.
I'd prefer going even deeper into hell
I guess I've already been over this stuff but here it is anyway.
>real "strength" isn't only about winning in the match.
Was "strength" quoted in the original? Having it in quotes doesn't really add anything, it's just sorta distracting. Also
>winning in the match.
Should probably just be "winning the match." Having the "in" makes it sound like he's saying "you should be winning in the match, but you should also be winning outside of the match," which would be a weird thing for him to be saying.
>go to a new stage
"stage" just as in a place? A new arena? Or "stage" like a new stage of her development? If it's a new stage in her development, then the verb choice "go to" is not very good, but it's probably a new place. In which case the choice of the word "stage" is kinda iffy. Just "go to a new place" or "go somewhere new" would probably be better. Or if the intent is more specifically about conflict or challenge or something then even "go to a new battlefield" could work.
>Wherever I'll go, I won't lose!!
"Wherever I go, I won't lose!!"
It looks like your cleanup didn't quite get the background to white on this page. The background is still pretty grey so your erasures are really evident.
"ensuring" is definitely the wrong word. Probably "reassuring" but "encouraging" would also work.
Looks like a stray period here.
Same as above.
Same issue with the background.
>10 new members vs 10 old members,
If it's not too cramped I'd recommend spelling all this stuff out, it's just more stylistically correct and looks nicer.
"Ten new members versus ten old members,"
>Does that mean she's a first year?
There's a dot below the "e" in "mean" that appears to be from the original kana. It's pretty inconsequential, but wanted to mention it anyway.
>we will go with the second team.
Not really sure which team this refers to. The second team that she speaks about in the preceding dialog is the more experienced team, apparently. But I would think that by giving a handicap she would mean that they (whoever "we" refers to) would be going with the newcomers to help them out, because presumably they (probably the girl speaking and some kind of administrative team?) are of the "old members" group. Maybe this was confusing in the original.
Background is back to normal.
>What do they take my command for!?
So the idiom at play here is "What do they take me for!?" Putting "my command" in there kinda breaks the idiom, it's not really idiomatic anymore. Also I'm not sure it's necessary. Just
"What do they take me for!?"
gets the same point across. But if the "my command" part is totally necessary then the idiom should be abandoned. Something like:
"They don't think I can command!?"
"They don't respect my command!?"
>SFX; White flag sound, smoke
This is a semicolon when it should probably be a colon.
>on the senpai's side...
I'm not sure if this needs to be possessive at all. And I also don't think it needs to be pluralized with an "s" either, seeing as it's a romanization of a Japanese word or whatever. Isn't that how it works? So just
"on the senpai side..."
I think? It's like saying on the senpai team. Like on the red team. Saying "on the senpai's side" makes it sound like she's referring to a particular senpai. It's a real weird situation actually, but I think "on the senpai side..." is the least confusing option, while still seeming totally correct, at least to me.
>SFX; White flag sound, ominous wind
Semicolon again. The middle one on the page is a colon, so I'm assuming it's definitely a mistake, possibly copied and pasted.
>Only 1 tank was
Again, I'd recommend spelling out "one"
>Earlier match was amazing
"The match earlier was amazing"
>Be quiet for awhile!!
"Be quiet for a while!!"
Interesting note, "awhile" is actually an adverb whose meaning is basically "for a while," meaning this sentence read as "Be quiet for for a while!" So "Be quiet awhile!!" would also be correct, but sorta unnatural.
Interesting to me anyway...
I don't really know what this means.
I think that's all the Erika's Pride from Gangsta Cromwell so far. Let me see if the rest of the TL script is still up...
All of this is just super awkward. These are all attempts to make it less awkward.
>Could you possibly have a match with me now?
"Could we possibly have another match?"
"Could we possibly have a rematch?"
>Haven't we already?
"Haven't we done that?"
>Please let me do it one more time!
"Please let me try one more time!"
"Please, let's do it one more time!"
>She can be a good friend to Miho-san from before.
I think the intent is:
"She could be a good friend for Miho-san from before."
But I'm really not sure what she's talking about. I'm assuming that this is implying that they just met Miho, and she's saying that Erika might make a good friend for Miho.
>I'll accompany you once more.
"accompany" seems like an odd choice, but I'm not really sure what to do with it. Maybe she's just being magnanimous and poetic or something. I guess it's fitting with her character.
>This time I'm thoroughly prepared about rules!
Is she saying that she has read up on the rules and knows them now? Is she supposed to be like deluding herself into thinking that was the problem last time, that she didn't know the rules? Or maybe it's about the format, like she wasn't used to a 10v10 battle? I suspect these are questions we'll never have any answers to, but for now this is more correct:
"This time I'm thoroughly prepared for the rules!"
>Let's do 5 vs 5 now.
I'd recommend "Let's do five on five now."
>If you have no questions, get serious.
Is she saying something like "if you're ready to go, better get your game face on"? Because that almost comes across. Maybe:
"If you have no more questions, then prepare yourself."
>I'm pretty fond of such straightforward personality.
"I'm pretty fond of such a straightforward personality."
>I even changed changed the rules
"I even changed the rules" obviously.
>can be so
"could be so"
>too much until now.
"too much before now."
>To laugh at someone
"Laughing at someone"
>is thousand times
"is a thousand times"
>I never thought
"I've never thought"
>searching the truth.
"searching for the truth."
>has that, she's so strong?
"has that, that she's so strong?"
>I'm not even in the first class.
It seems like this should be "I'm not even in her class."
That's all the pages.
Reading this stuff now:
And I'm fuckin' confused. Maho is clearly the one suggesting 5v5, but later Erika thinks to herself "I even changed the rules thinking I could win." Maybe Erika knew Maho was going to make it 5v5? Maybe that's something in the rules? Like because she suggested a "match" or something? You could change her line from:
>This time I'm thoroughly prepared about rules!
>If I understand the rules, this means she's going to...
Like she's using the rules to force Maho's hand to her perceived advantage. Does any of this make sense?
OKAY, now it's time for Kurogane: pukapuka-tai #39. Should go a little smoother, anyway.
>in such situation
"in such a situation"
The lack of punctuation in this thing is discomforting to me.
Holy shit, exclamation points. How are there exclamation points here, but now when she's yelling "Advance" ?
o shit dat bitch ded
>bridge took fire
Do things "take" fire? Is this a European thing? A Navy thing? If not, then "bridge caught fire"
Well that was easy.
>that one anon existentially tormented by those doujins due to them being made by the actual Upotte!! guy
I feel bad for them.
Unlike the GuP doujins, there are no memes and movie references to be had.
Aren't those same doujins in the Japanese Teacher's room? The ones Ichiroku seemed intent on finding the first time the visited, and that FNC so kindly arranged later?
>tormented by those doujins
Not that anon, but that particular anon go as far as to mention "if that's the kind of nonsense the author will do might as well end Upotte!! while we're at it".
Still don't know how to feel when my country went from the AUG to the M4A1.
What country do you live in that did that? The AUG is a great rifle, but as a lefty I'm somewhat biased against bullpups.
Also worth noting that in the pic I posted >>136197784 here, the ejection port for the AUG is on the wrong side. If she shoots like that, brass will be all up in her face.
Still impossible for me to post anythiing over a few kb's. Oh well.
I'll try something tonight (GMT+1 time).
I was trying out macros.
Back to manual fine-tuning I guess.
And FINALLY (I think), Comic Anthology 1 Chapter 1
>Thanks to this "Virtual Battlefield Machine" I borrowed from a certain place--
Literally what the fuck. Also any double dashes like this should obviously be em dashes.
>wrecked British tank brigade
"wrecked a British tank brigade" I assume.
>British army have just started
"The British army have just started" or
"The British soldiers have just started"
>It's like those guys thought that they've won already.
"It's like those guys think that they've won already." Or I guess in this wacky scenario possibly:
"It's like those guys thought they'd won already." Either could work...
>role of British army?
"role of the British army?"
>just what you'd expect Nishizumi-dono!
"just what you'd expect from Nishizumi-dono!"
>Panzer IV is no match for it!
"A/The Panzer IV is no match for it!"
"full brake!" I assume. Apply the brakes at full, right?
>The half-track is done with!
Does she mean it's destroyed because they just shot it? If so, I'd recommend "The half-track is finished!"
>in front of M3
"in front of an/the M3"
>Tank being destroyed image is also created by Battlefield Machine.
"The image of the tank being destroyed is also created by the Battlefield Machine."
>It's because M3 stuart if stronger than type 89...
I don't get it, are these articles being omitted intentionally?
"It's because the M3 Stuart is stronger than the Type 89..."
>What do they take my command for!
I would even ditch the line and say "What opinion do they have of my 1337 commandin skilz?!!one!", but the might be overorrecting a bit, even igf it gets the meaning perfectly across.
Fuck, I forgot my Oryou.
And that's it apparently. I don't THINK there was anything else I missed, but point it out to me if there was.
As always, huge thanks to Gangsta Cromwell, g_z and that anon who somehow or another got translations for the Anthology chapters?
Man, you've just got nothing but problems. How's the hand? (or was it a wrist?)
The tank in >>136196638 should provide a clue. It is a very complicated story that involved being on the burning end of deals, corruption on all ends, issues with manufacturing (our AUGs are considered the worst among the license-manufactured ones), not being allowed to get the AUG A3, and Colt offering to set up an assembly line for the M4A1 over here.
However, the boots on the ground kind of loved the M4A1 more. Had a reservist that worked at my place and he said he liked it a lot more.
I had a chuckle when I saw that post.
Some people really can't stand their girls being raped by faceless old men.
>Maho is clearly the one suggesting 5v5
By the drawing. Yet clearly it's Erika by the conversation flow (continues from her "well" in previous panel). I'm under the impresion that the artist made a continuity mistake.
That, or Maho's mad second guessing skillz (remember, it's canon: she second-guessed EVERYTHING Miho threw at her) made her know Erika wanted a 5vs5 and quickdraw-offered it too her.
I'm sticking to option B to cover for option A
Feel free to rewrite the line completly if you find a way to fix the SNAFU. Otherwise, I'll faithfully leave it "as is"
Yeah, I'd just as soon leave it. Like you say, something is broken one way or another. If we give the reader the translation as is, then at least they have all the same information that we do with which to try and puzzle it out. Also I'm pretty burnt out after all that.
That's it, thread's over, everybody go home.
This narrows it down to Malaysia, judging by tank and environment.
Not sure how the AUG would fare in that kind of environment, but it can't be worse than the original M16s in Vietnam. I guess M4s are just cheaper, and AUGs are not cheap guns.
>That's it, thread's over, everybody go home.
>Man, you've just got nothing but problems. How's the hand? (or was it a wrist?)
You should have seen the time I had to take a five-months hiatus because of blogshitTwo years ago, I was typesetting so fast that I overtook Momo when he posted CA chapter 3. Compare and contrast with my 4 to 8 pages a day now. That's why I'm not taking other series, and why I don't complain when other typesetters take on chapters. RR, Maginot, and antology chapters have my hands full, and I won't take new projects once (and if) the three end.
Basically, I'm not exactly a youngster (I'm actually pushing
DELETED), and shit keeps piling up. My right hand is a mess, and my sight is a mess. It all affects the time I can work. If this was a job instead of a fan project, I'd be in trouble.
I'd pluck her string, if you know what I mean.
It is if you still are interested in relationship dynamics and who "wins" when the author is tired of pretending.
You will never have your own radio show to be heard across Europe
Like there's a europe to sing to anymore
Showing off your skills to show the world to fear the tank.
Sometimes I just love the nips.
Not too surprised that this is what gets passed around, but let's make this clear.
The point was that the doujins have progressively become less and less about nice sidestories and some fanservice -> full nudity -> outright porn.
Even up till the nude doujins it could be accepted as being canon as it didn't really conflict with the storylines. With the gangbangs... it's been hard to tell without translations whether or not it was.
And that's where >>136197469 >>136197765 and you messed up. These porn doujins make it silly to care about G3 showing her bra, HK33 fawning over FAL or FNC getting all panicked in >>136198315 about losing her first kiss to Sako before being registered. It just becomes pointless if the school is less of a retirement home and more of a whorehouse.
That's the context of letting the series end. I put aside being a guns loving guns fag for that point.
>Do things "take" fire?
yeah, since it's MG fire and not, well, fire fire
also catching fire is only for Kitakubu
Upotte ends as whorehouse. The fuck mate.
>Not sure how the AUG would fare in that kind of environment, but it can't be worse than the original M16s in Vietnam. I guess M4s are just cheaper, and AUGs are not cheap guns.
They did fine, problem is operating budgets kind of get constrained by the need to increase the living standards of everyone.
Some of the opposition go as far as to say "why even have a military it is not the way to do it, we use diplomacy to win over everyone!" Unfortunately countries like everyone all over SEA and China doesn't think that way. It's kind of funny how the opposition tried to claim they want the country to be like Singapore yet forget they spent quite a lot on defense.
What the... No.
That's what the Upotte VN project and other people who like straight stuff would want.
I mean letting the obvious thing play out in the story. Teacher pulls some bullshit out that wins the fight against Red Steel. FNC ends up with teacher.
Fast forward some 40 years and teacher is dead of old age and Sig is there waiting for her at the school.
Does she even age?
Also 40 years. Come on anon if her and SIG is going to happen it will be way before then.
Armourfagging aside, comparing modern day tanks is fucking retarded considering the only thing they'll be fighting is 70's and 80's slavshit. Yeah you could go on about how "Leopard 2 has the best mobility of modern MBTs" or "Challenger 2 has the best armour with ERA" but this doesn't really matter when their targets were made obsolete decades ago.
>the only thing they'll be fighting is 70's and 80's slavshit
And then people have things like the M8 AGS which is perfect for the job until some armchair general thinks that the M1128 MGS is better.
All 2D Finns and wannabe Finns are good.
Fuck, I'm dumb.
I still think it's sorta ambiguous, though, for two reasons:
1. "To take fire" can actually be used to mean the same thing as "to catch fire"
2. "Taking fire" in the military context of being "under fire" is almost always used in the form "taking fire" in media, it seems less idiomatic when changed to past tense.
Anyway, I've got some simple solutions which will absolutely clear up any confusion that simpletons like me might run into (because I seriously thought that fuckin' boat was on fire):
"took enemy fire" or
"Took enemy fire" is probably better because it's still the same in all ways except that specifying "enemy" fire is probably totally unnecessary in this context. It's totally clear in its meaning and nobody reading it will even think twice about it.
Damn, this Upotte shit sounds pretty involved. I always thought it was some short and dumb gag manga about girls who are guns for some reason.
So should I pick this thing up or not at this point?
Doesn't seem like they age.
It's not like I don't want her and Sig to be together. But there have been plenty of series where the lesbian loses. The teacher could have been written out at many points but lately it's all been ramping up to make him more important.
I'd prepared myself for the eventuality that he would end up winning FNC.
But by going by others in the series. Thompson and FG42 are "roommates" and M14 has been waiting for FAL to notice she has feelings for her for decades.
Sig has rescued the teacher and helped him even though she could have gotten him tossed out of the school much earlier. Sig would respect FNC's decision and would meet up with FNC again after he was out of the picture.
Do you keep your Erika on a leash?
And remember to keep her indoors when she's in heat. She gets very eager.
>Just "go to a new place"
We went full fucking circle. The original translation had "go to new places" I think. Then it was changed to "stage". Then you say change it back to "place" which it was in the first place.
I thought they wear something like pic related. You know, the warm and comfy kind (wikipedia says it's "polar fleece" in English)
>keeping her outside
That's how they get into trouble, friend.
I want the Russian one.
Sheds too much fur, would you really like that inside?
I want the Pepperoni one
You have to take care of her coat, stroke her and rub her down every day. And of course feed her well.
How else you going to let her sleep on your bed?
I have a feeling this is your first Erika.
Oh man, dat Maho. Would marry/10.
Preferably in a bikini, boots and with googles.
Miho is to kind hearted for that.
That's doesn't mean anything when it comes to play time.
The bed is too small for 3. I bet Erika tosses around too much in bed
>shared a sleeping bag.
Jesus, I need space anon. And how are you going to get some sleep with another human being 37 degrees sticking so close to you. Might as well sleep with an airpot
Its the people's hat. The people is just taking it back
I don't know, but I want to find out.
No idea. It's just canon that all garupans are Japanese and all schools are in Japan. Darjeeling is a prime example of that since even the 4koma makes jokes about her nationality.
also someone started translating pic related on danbooru
what the fuck
Daily reminder that Darjeeling is an idiot, her puns suck and other girls treat her like a complete utter dumbass.
Why is Yuzu so damn fucking perfect?
She has been mai waifu since the anime.
Momo is for bullying and breeding.
lol yeah experienced crews that know their machines are at a lose against amateurs that lack uniformity or familiarity
>St Glo damage control, Darjeeling on suicide watch
So many comfy images in this thread, I don't know which one to keep and to fap!
m8 I think we're venturing a little too far comparing St Glo v Oorai to bloody Vietnam.
Let's just agree the girls are kawaii as fuck, ok?
Would you a Mako?
All girls are cute, but some girls are cuter than the others!
Even when she's asleep!
Getting femdomed by someone who's bad at talking dirty and constantly apologizes for being rough would be cute as hell.
I would superman punch her in the face not being able to move is so scary shit.
what did they mean by this?
I posted it in the waifu thread and the drawthread. No one has delivered but it would feel very rude to keep requesting until someone does.
I can wait, we only truly need it when Arsenal's season implode.
>be on top
Such is the Arsenal life.
>Not really sure which team this refers to. The second team
They have like a hundred members in their Senshado club. So they probably have people who participate in tournaments and just backup members (second team) who aren't as skilled.
>"accompany" seems like an odd choice
She says " hang out" in the original I think.
"This time I thoroughly came with rules". Try to rework it into English.
>tormented by doujins
>In Outer Heaven, girls become guns
I won't even fell super tall next to some of these girls.
Asian and 185cm tall.
So any word on this? It's been out for months and months.
Only during sex. Would never abuse though. Self-propelled girls are sweet and precious.
Replacing the pepperoni on her pizza with Thai chilli is not funny, Carpacchio.
>older guy who used to be great at his job
>now only does a few projects
>still an asset, not a liability
So basically /ak/'s version of pic related. We can live with it.
"Taking fire" is OK, Anon. Short and to the point - which is how you report something tking fire in middle of a battle.
Same as the "Angels" instead of "thousands of feet" of a few threads ago.
Not that guy, but I could not take being hot and lying in an uncomfortable position so badly, than I went to sleep in a separate bed every time after having sex. Being introverted is hard.
Don't think suicide watch will be needed. I'd say that Darj would have been at first all "WHAT? I BLOODY FUCKING ALMOST LOST TO GODDAMN BLASTED AMATEURS" in the most British
sailorway. But watching those "amateurs" win battle after battle likely reasured her confidence o being, after all, the only one to ever defeat Oarai. Watching all of Miho's battles was likely therapeutic for her. Well, also, raging lesbo ogling Miho's legs.
we still got g_z, AP Shells, TS Anon, Lardagus, the original typesetter Anon should he reappear, maybe /u/ typesetter if there's enough lewd... if there's a transcript, someone will.
You don't like cuddling together with the girl after you've fucked her?
Just so we're clear I'm not a normalfag, Every woman I've been with was a prostitute and we always cuddled a lot afterwards.
Because he does with his characters whatever the fuck he wants to? (pun unintended but welcome)
What are you, a 12-old butthurt with JK Rowling because your favourite Harry Potter pairing didn't happen? Fie, gentleman, fie! You're much better than that, Anon.
I don't think I can feel genuine affection at all. Maybe I just didn't like her specifically. In any case, cuddling is one thing, not being able to fall asleep because I'm not lying in one of the specific positions and suffocating from heat is another.
Good. About Juusensha then. This character is named "hayousu" if I remember correctly. Is that a reference to something German? How do you write it in English?
Raita is obligated under contract not make Valkyria Chronicles doujins because Sega don't want him to damage the brand with his skeleton porn.
Eggplant-san does whatever he wants since he's self published.
I'll protect Nina from the bullies.
Cenzorship on Uszka's skirt was really forced in this chapter.
also because of how caring Miho has been in the main series, I was pissed when after the match Jajka just burst into laughter instead of checking if Uszka or her others tankers are ok.

That's like saying "tanks can't love tanks"
Or you know, they aren't cannon which means they don't have to be in character. If another author did it would you have the same complaints? If not, there's a double standards. I just find it funny one actually get affected by them. I mean there are other series that have "official" doujins (done by original author) that are full of rape etc. Guess I need to do a write-up on how it's not following the trends in the original. Seems you just have a hard time separating things in your mind. Until things from those doujins actually transfer it doesn't matter.
Eventually she stays alone and due to her issue's, eats up the school budget making them send her to a museum when she is chained to a display case for future generations to see. Could be worse though.

>dat glorious debut of the Subaru Impreza in rallying
>those explosions from the exhaust
I pitty the deaf.
Surprisingly this is how they're supposed to look like.
It was used alongside heavier Tiger so it was classified as such. But actual weight was almost as heavy as IS-2, more importantly it failed to replace Panzer IV (main combat force) for various reasons, primarily numbers, therefore it failed as a medium tank.
No prototype built, not legal.
>cancel all tonks except Maus and Ratte

Apparently Rommel and Guderian were present when Hitler presented his maus idea. they were later asked to leave for being too critical.
I'd love to see two of the most important people in the history of armored warfare calling Hitlers tankfu a shit.
>IS-3s raping the shit out of everything
