Translations: LUNAR: Walking School Translation Complete!
« on: December 17, 2009, 05:19:56 pm »

Update By: Gideon Zhi

After apparently twelve long years, the combined efforts of Aeon Genesis and Some Good Shit Translations have finally produced a translation of the "lost" LUNAR title: Walking School for the gamegear. The patch now ready and the game can be enjoyed completely in English! Have fun, and don't forget to remind Professor Dadis of who you are every now and again.

Awesome.

Just one question: "Walking School"? I know that's what "Sanposuru Gakuen" translates to, but couldn't you have come up with something that doesn't sound like "a school where they teach you how to walk"? "The Wandering School" would've been an awesome name (yeah, that'd be "Samayoeru Gakuen", but a little artistic license goes a long freakin' way)...

Yah those Japanese, they make great games but they come up with wierd titles. Why is that? Does "Walking School" sound perfectly logical to the Japanese mind, or do they just come up with weird stuff and not care?

It’s weird because it’s weird. The Japanese brand of weirdness translates surprisingly well, because it’s just as weird to the Japanese audience. Japanese humor circles around a lot of weirdness, particularly because dirty jokes have never really been in vogue.
