THEN WHY THE FUCK DIDN'T YOU FUCKING TRANSLATE IT AS GHOST?
>>
>>116641552
Or 'spector'
>>
>>116641552
Are you really not familiar with youkai by now?
How new are you?
>>
>>116641552
Because it's kawaii to throw in the occasional Japanese word.

>"Kawaii" means "cute" in the Japanese language.
>>
>>116641612
>sucking jap cock
fuck off
>>
It doesn't mean ghost.
>>
Because using just ghost or specter is not properly translation, considering there are many different kinda of youkai that don't fit that bill. Also your complaining to the wrong people on the wrong board, go whine about it in /vg/
>>
Youkai means a lot of different shit.

There's no English word that would encompass all the shit that can be called youkai
>>
We are Japanese goblin.
>>
Youkai aren't just ghosts or specters.
They can be demons, and other shit from Japanese folklore.
>>
Just call it a demon
>>
>>116641552
Because Yokais aren't just ghosts and the translation is attempting to put it slightly into perspective for you.

Relax OP. You haven't seen shit yet.
>>
>>116641819
monster?
>>
>>116641671
I actually laughed out loud. Good job.
>>
>>116641552
Youkai not ghost. Translator is retard.
>>
Because youkai doesn't have an end-all-be-all translation. Like virtually every other word and phrase in Moon, it has various meanings.
>>
>>116641552
That's like saying Shinigami is equivalent to a grim reaper, so why didn't they translate it as grim reaper.

Eh, monster is pretty close, but it has a kind of physical implication like Frankenstein or the wolf-man.

Maybe Paranormal Entity?
>>
>>116641892
Now this is just straight up maho.
>>
>>116641612
>missing the point

it must suck to be autistic.
>>
>>116642000
Why can't I find good subs like those anymore?
>>
>>116642006
That loses the Japanese folklore implication. Just leave it as yokai.
>>
>>116641552
Which VN is this?

Nothing from Google (I guess because you just took the screenshot)...
>>
>>116642006
>Maybe Paranormal Entity?
Yeah that's probably a pretty good term for it.

Youkai is fine though because it refers to a whole bunch of Japanese specific monsters.
You know that when they say youkai they're talking about shit like kappas and tengus, not unicorns or trolls.
>>
>>116642089
Clannad
>>
What kind of shit release are you using?
>>
>>116642089
Fuck off, seriously.

If you don't recognize that character art, why are you even posting here?

Don't give me any bullshit excuses either.
>>
>>116642089

How can you not recognize this based on the hair and uniform?
>>
>>116641552
Why isn't her name translated?
>>
>>116642051
Spirit may be close, but it might overlap with Gods when applied to Japanese.

What about Fey? Fey is mainly used to refer to fairies now, but it's pretty general actually.

He probably thinks it looks too old to have watched.
>>
>>116642194
>implying you can translate a pronoun into a noun
Back to elementary school with you.
>>
Thankfully Clannad (VN) is getting re-translated soon, and by actual professionals.
>>
>>116641552
Keikaku means plan.

Are you telling me Him cannot be a name?
>>
>>116642602
Can you read? Can you not tell what I was trying to say from my non-ambigous words?
>>
>YOUKAI COULD MEAN ANYTHING OP
>meanwhile the translators note says it means ghost
there is a severe disconnect in your brains f/a/gs

>are you inhabiting the school?
Demons and monsters don't fucking "inhabit" schools--they just teach there, you tards. But Clannaids takes one look at you and assumes you're fucking haunting the place.

You know what "haunts" in western folklore? What makes people go "yup, that shit's haunted" with a single glance? Ghosts. Ghosts haunt shit.

Pick something that makes a lick of sense if you wanna go full commie on the VN.

HIM stands for His Infernal Majesty, try again.
>>
>>116642818
Because that translation is totally infallible.
