Okay, so I realized it might be beneficial to explain some of the names in this series like I did last time so that we’re all clear and there are no misunderstandings.

  • Ril/Mel: It’s fucking Ril and Mel, which anyone could know if only they took five minutes to do their research and read the promotional material.
  • Nanashi: Literally “no name”. Or “74”, if you like crazy ideas.
  • Mama: Mama. We all understand this is English, right?
  • Guzu/Guzuko: Slow [girl].
  • Onee-san: Refers to a girl, generally teenage to young twenties, who is not necessarily related to oneself. I know it’s confusing because it also means older sister, but this specific form (with the “O” prefix and “san” suffix) is the one used for strangers. Think of it as an extension of the Japanese collectivist culture or something.
  • Hambur/Ketch/etc: These are foods.
  • Ferma/Descart/etc: Short for Fermat, Descartes, and so on.
  • Cunning: Wasei-eigo for cheating.
  • Ganbatte/Ganba: All right, this is the hardest thing we had to pick, and sorry if it sounds awkward. Ganbaru is the generic “do your best” or “work hard” phrase, and it’s not as if ganba is some mystical crazy never-used word or anything, but we wanted to make it very clear that it’s a shortening. After much deliberation, we went with “go all in” for the long version and “all in” for the short version.
  • ドーナ/あーや: Haven’t decided how to write these in English yet.
  • Kiyoi: Pure garment, or more accurately, best girl.
