Battle Golfer Yui
« on: December 10, 2017, 10:23:26 am »
Good news! This project is coming along very well.

However, a couple of lines in the intro are bugging me.

During the intro sequence we have a lowly subordinate bringing the results of the computer calculations to the leader of an evil organization. They say "These are the two the computer came up with this time."

It's two people, who have the potential to be "battle golfers", after being unethically modified that is. Incidentally they are our two main characters, the first of whom is named Yui Mizuhara.

;「バトルゴルファーの そたい としては さいてきかと おもわれます」

;「はじめの そたいが ミズハラ ユイです」

The term that's getting me is そたい. I feel like it's being used like "candidate". The only word this seems like it could be is 素体, but that appears to be some mathematical term "finite field/prime field".

This kind of makes sense as finite group of potential battle golfers, but it seems like an odd usage of the word. Especially when it says, "The first そたい is Yui Mizuhara". She's the first finite field? :(

Any ideas?

Take a look at this: https://eow.alc.co.jp/search?q=素体

Seems to be "body".

So, maybe そたい is something like body, object, entity, etc.

EDIT: This guy here: http://www.sega-16.com/forum/showthread.php?32865- translated it as "prime body".

It's thought that they're optimal bodies for battle golfers.
;「はじめの そたいが ミズハラ ユイです」
The first body is Yui Mizuhara.

Well that was easy. :) Domo!

SMALL EDIT: The battle golfers actually have cybernetic bodies. The way it says バトルゴルファー そたい leads me to think that it's closer to:

It's thought that they're ideal for the battle golfer bodies.

For the first body, Yui Mizuhara.

Here's a suggestion for an alternative phrasing:

"They are considered to be ideal for the bodies of battle golfers."
