One line weapon/armor/item descriptions
« on: September 12, 2011, 07:35:24 pm »
The most context I can give is that these are short weapon, armor, or other item descriptions. A few that I'm not sure about. Any ideas?

1. 長さ当しゃひ1、5倍!!

2 これさえあれば無敵無敵無敵![NEWL]
As long as I have this I'm invincible invincible invincible![NEWL]
でもザコにだけプッシュン。
But small fry only (???).

3. 1/4で金しばる。 (Also same thing but 1/2: 1/2で金しばる。)

4. 毒、猛毒はぜ~んぶペィッ!
Poison, deadly poison completely pe -(???)!

5. やったやったやったやった~~~~い。
Did it (yay?) did it did it did it (want to do it???).

6. パンパカパ~ン![NEWL]
(Da-da-dah???)!
特殊攻撃完全回避の盾で~い。
A shield that will completely avoid special attacks.

1. No idea. Something about increasing something by 1.5x.

2. All you need to be invincible, unbeatable, indefatigable! But little guys can still smack you down.
(NOTE: プッシュン is the sound of pressurized gas being released)

3. Not sure. 金縛る can apparently mean "to be bound or paralyzed", or also "to be tied down by money". What does this item do?

4. Takes deadly poison and goes PTOOIE!
(NOTE: ペ is the sound of spitting something out)

5. I did it I did it I did it I DID IT!
(NOTE: The い at the end is only emphatic. "Want to do" would be やたい)

6. DAH duh duh duh DAH duh dah DAAAAAAH!
This shield lets you totally avoid special attacks!
(NOTE: パンパカパ~ン is the sound of a fanfare)

HTH
Sign THIS!

Thanks a bunch Paul! Your grasp of the language never fails to amaze me.

As for that first one I'm thinking maybe 当社 which looks from space alc like it's used as "us" or "we" sometimes. Maybe "We increase our length by 1.5 times!". Argh, sounds like male enhancement spam. :P

金縛る basically means sleep paralysis. Although it can also mean "tied down by money", the meaning is a little different than being to poor to do anything, but more that one worries about the cost of things to such a ridiculous extent that they are held back. Like not not watching TV because you are too worried about the power bill, or not going out with friends because you don't want to spend money at the bar, on a taxi ect. Although when used in that way, the passive form of the verb is typically used  金に縛られる

Technically this is saying that whatever it is that is long (sword maybe?) is 1.5x longer than the second longest sword they have. It sounds a little goofy, something you would expect to see on a TV commercial for some budget department store or something. Like, when someone is trying to sell you a sword, they might tell you how sharp it is, or how it was forged and tempered by some master blacksmith, but with this they are like "Check out this sword its...ahh... longer than our other swords!".

Thanks as well to you geishaboy. With this the script for Aretha II should be 100%.
