Talk:Seirei Tsukai no Blade Dance:Volume3 Chapter2
Hi, I would like to ask about 2 parts in Part 1.
First, "Sorry, the short sword is more of my specialty", is there a mistake here because I thought that Kamito is more used to using the long sword, I could be wrong though.
Second, "Fianna was suspended in midair as she writhed, but she was helpless spirit opponent. " Maybe there are some words missing here? The sentence's flow is not smooth.
Thanks for the translation again :D. Zakashi 10:38, 6 July 2012 (CDT)
It's correct, probably something relating to his assassination training/skills. Or, should I use the word dagger?
I'm pretty certain about the line, anyway, my mistake was that I missed out some words for 2nd.
Well, in my opinion if I interpret it as Chinese, it would be "short sword" and definitely not "dagger", but in Japanese it could have a broader range of meaning. In chinese, dagger would more likely be translated as "匕首".
Edit: I just checked the chinese translation (never went there before to spoil myself, I prefer reading light novels in english), the translation gave it as a short sword, "短剑", well it could be a case of the chinese translator just taking it literally, it's up to you. :DZakashi 05:17, 7 July 2012 (CDT)
Just a note, if we change "short sword" here, we may have to change it in the previous chapter in Volume 1 (Chapter 6), whereby when Kamito initially summoned Est, it was "a short sword" Zakashi 05:41, 7 July 2012 (CDT)
I think I'm sticking to short sword, it's good enough, since "The term short sword or shortsword has been used refer to a number of weapons intermediate between the sword and the dagger"(from wiki), and that it's the literal meaning. --KuroiHikari (Talk | ) 07:56, 7 July 2012 (CDT)
I know that, but this is just a noun, not a sentence, not an expression. So, if I can get a 1-1 noun, that's the best. Dirk seems more of a type of dagger. In this kind of uncertainty, I'm not going to make any assumptions and use a 1-1 noun. --KuroiHikari (Talk | ) 11:00, 7 July 2012 (CDT)
Dirk fall in both the dagger and short sword categories. But anyways I already said if you want to do it that way then fine. So when will the rest of the chapter be uploaded? I'm itching to help by editing. Zero2001 - Talk - 15:10, 7 July 2012 (CDT)
Seems to me like elementary should mean something like a first year student/freshman yes? Do you think that would be a better substitute? Because elementary student gives the impression of small kids going to school, if you know what I mean haha. -- Royaloyalz (talk) 19:52, 3 March 2013 (CST)
There was no one, who could release this as an elementary student.
