I’ve been kind of busy and distracted recently, but I’m back to translating now. Luca’s Cosmosphere level 6 is nearly ready, pending my usual quick proofreading/sanity check, but for now, here’s a tasty excerpt to nibble on. Though maybe I should avoid food metaphors, considering it’s Luca….
Spoilers follow. Of course.
Croix(3) :20:20: JP::未完了…? EN::Incomplete wills...? NEW:Imperfections...? Luca(0) :21:21: JP::そう｡私の心には､自己否定をする嫌な自分が沢山いるの｡ 失敗すると後悔したり､人との付き合いで臆病になったり… EN::Yes. My heart is made up with a lot of personalities that are rejecting myself. Self rejecting me, regretful me... NEW:Right. In my heart are a lot of parts of myself I don't like and deny as part of me. Messing up and having regrets, getting timid when dealing with people.... Luca(0) :22:22: JP::自分の言いたいことが言えなくて､後で自分を責めたり､ 嫌なことから逃げて悔やんだり｡ EN::Me who is holding back, me who runs away from everything... NEW:Not being able to say what I want and beating myself up about it later, running away from unpleasant things and regretting it. Luca(0) :23:23: JP::その感情は､全部ここに溜まってくる｡ そしてそれは､溶岩の海となってこの世界にあふれ出すの｡ EN::All those stresses come and stay here, and all that energy turns into lava and pours into this world. NEW:Those feelings all collect here. And they turn into a sea of lava and overflow into this world.
These aren’t personalities that are rejecting herself, these are aspects of herself she wants to get rid of. Here, they’re specifically habitual behavior that she’s dissatisfied with. The descriptions of these traits are fairly off, and trying to personify them with “~ me” and “me who ~” is both awkward and unnecessary. She’s listing examples of things she does.
