Translation checks
« on: February 28, 2016, 11:33:53 am »
This is a Baby Baron monster that's blocking the entrance to a hedge maze.

<Speaker>!: SFX1 - check on screen.<end>

Have not encountered this.
//<Speaker>「べろべろ ばあ けけけけ<line>
//あばばばあ うけけけっ<end>
<Speaker>!: SFX2 - check on screen.<end>

Not sure what's going on with this one. There doesn't seem to be anything in the text that might be a follow-up. I've had full health when I've talked to the guy, and at this point in the game you don't have any party members that use SP (which, I'm assuming, is the game's equivalent of MP.)

But first, stamina!<line>
Replenish your stamina!<end>

とにかく 体力だ! should translate to something like "What's important is stamina!"

*Snip snip*
*Snip snip*

(ちょっきん is the sound of snipping with scissors, so maybe the monster is carrying scissors or has pincers or something?)

//<Speaker>「べろべろ ばあ けけけけ<line>
//あばばばあ うけけけっ<end>
<Speaker>!: SFX2 - check on screen.<end>

Pffft! Neener neener boo boo!

(This is basically a taunt. The speaker is sticking their tongue out and laughing at someone or something.)

//<Speaker>「いいことを おしえてやろう!<line>
//とにかく 体力だ!<line>
//体力を まんたんにしとけ!<end>

Psst! I'll tell you a secret!
HP is what's important!
Build up as much HP as you can!

(I'm guessing that 体力 is used to describe Hit Points in the game. "Health" or "stamina" would work, too.)
Soon the super karate monkey death car would park in my space. But Jimmy has fancy plans... and pants to match. The monkey clown horrible karate round and yummy like cute small baby chick would beat the donkey.

Thanks! That last one makes perfect sense; this guy shows up before several literal torture chambers you're forced to go through. Thanks!
