Has anyone out there in CVLand transcribed/translated the Nocturne voice actor soundbytes? 

We got a pretty big win when SotN localization nixed those in favor of a music test, but I'd still like to know what those folks were yammering about. 

(BTW Hekiru Shiina was the faerie and Blue Bomber in some other series and Norio Wakamoto was Dracula and is the Nate Dogg of Japanse voice acting.)

They probably don't say much of consequence but *looks at Nagumo and Shiroi Koumori*.

Shiroi translated these a couple of years ago. I found them in a document that I use to save CV translations.

Hi, I am the voice actor for Alucard, who looks like an 18-year-old but is actually 400 years old. My name is Okyayu Ryoutarou. He is a very cool - how shall I say - pretty character? And his lines are cool/tasteful/refined(?) (laughs) Not very compatible with Mr Yanada. (laughs). Better let him say it himself. This voice acting work was very interesting. Yes, everyone let’s have fun shall we? 
 
マリア役の横山智佐です。今朝トイレに時計を落としました、誰か拾ってください。うそです、自分で拾いました。
"I am Yokoyama Chisa, the voice-actress for Maria. This morning, I accidentally dropped my watch into the toilet bowl. Can someone help me get it? Just kidding, I picked it up myself."

"I am Fukami Rika, the voice actress for Succubus. I talked so much, I’m so hungry now. Someone treat me to a meal please." 
 
"I am Satou Masaharu. It’s great that the game is over! Is it over already? Let’s meet somewhere next time!"
Wakamoto Norio: "Sigh, it’s so tiring to do the dialogue for action games! "   
 
リヒター役の梁田清之です。君!ゲームばっかりやってないでたまには体を鍛えようね。充実した一生を過ごせますように… では。
"I am Yanada Kyoyuki, the voice actor of Richter. You! Don’t keep playing video games. Get some exercise so that you can live a more fulfilling life."   

Imp: “Ah, my name is Yanami Jouji. I am no longer young. I have been doing this for a long time. Basically I’ve always been playing silly roles, but the weather’s especially warm this year, it’s killing me.  I have to think of a way to get through this, but, I’m an old man already. I can’t take it anymore, the heat is making me so exhausted. Sigh, someone save me please. Soon, when September comes, I think it should get a little better. At any rate , I’m old already. Perhaps I really can’t take it anymore. Hmm, that’s all I have to say. Bye.”

Fairy: "Hi, I’m Shiina Hekiru. Congrats on clearing the game. Hmm, It’s been a long journey. Did you take your meals while you were playing? I’m guessing you must have been playing through the night and missing out on sleep, playing continuously for a several hours, hmm, you probably lost around three kilograms. But it would be interesting to challenge this in a different way.  All in all, thank you very much. Lastly, let’s shout ‘Konami’. ‘One, two, three, Konami!’"

They sound like a rather goofy bunch of voice actors.

Succubus has all the chill: "Recording video games is rough work. Someone buy me a goddamn pizza pls".
How not to be a dark lord: the answer to that is a terribly interesting answer that involves an almost Jedi-like adherence to keeping oneself under control and finding ways to be true to yourself in a way that doesn't encourage the worst parts of you to become dangerously exaggerated and instead feeds your better nature. Also, protip: don't fuck with Alchemy or strike up any deals with ancient Japanese Shinigami gods no matter how tempting the deal or how suavely dressed the Shinigami is.

I dislike Norio Wakamoto as Dracula. Not as "villain character" but specifically as Dracula.

I needed to listen to him say "Dark Inferno!" only once to think someone else would do a better Dracula.
The mastermind behind the "Umbra of Sorrow" project. But not the only one.

He has the best death scream, though.

Aren't most if not all VAs are goofy? I've seen a lot of behind the scenes videos and interviews for some of my fave animes and they just goof around. Same thing happens on the twitter feeds and interviews of Western VAs.

I can't unhear the Norio Wakamoto Dracula.  I don't even remember how Portrait of Ruin's Drac sounded.  Gimme some names, who else could've made a good JPNZ Drac in '97?  (The Rondo one's voice doesn't match the Nocturne look, IMHO.)
