;D ;D ;D

wait which one was judgement again?

The crappy fighting game featuring character art by the guy from Deathnote because the series with goth warriors fighting the Prince of Darkness some how needed to be more edgy.
Plus some stuff for the lolicons.
I dunno, man.
Metroid Dread seems pretty on point, tho I only played the demo.
I can't say I'm bothered by these cross overs.

On the other hand I feel like I'll finish my own Castlevania fan remake before the next true installment of the series is released.

In the mean time I've kept my addiction at bay by replaying the old games, trying out every romhack I can find, and searching out similarly flavored indie titles.

Heya! I have one for you guys.

Rather than a simple translation, I'm asking for a bit of a lesson.

十字架を胸に (Jūjika wo Mune, lit. "Cross at Chest")

I was updating the track list for Konami Game Music Collection Vol. 1 over on the Castlevania Wiki and for the sake of posterity and practice I re-translated the whole Haunted Castle soundtrack. I was primarily focused on literal translations and this track caught my attention because I'm not sure I'm understanding the original Japanese wording correctly.

I think I get the use of を as a particle that signifies a location.
I feel like I'm missing the context of the wording I need to be able to actually get the meaning across in a translation.

It seems to have two main interpretations as either "making the sign of the cross over your chest" as in "Cross Your Heart", and the other being the literal one I used of "a cross located your chest". I dunno, I feel like I'm missing something.

There's also the context of this being the theme for the game's first and it being set in a graveyard.

I have a similar doubt about the final stage theme:

夜まで待てない (Yorumade Matenai, lit. "Not Waiting Until Night")

Which I've seen translated as "I Can't Wait until Night" and more commonly as "Don't Wait until Night".
The first one sounds more like it conveys excitement where as the other is more like a warning.
Given that the actual stage appears to take place during the day, I'm thinking it should be something more like "No Waiting for the Night".

Any insight on these would be most appreciated.
A lot of current anime have weird/useless collaborations in Japan and that's fine by me. It satiates the fans and give stuff for the hard core ones to do (like collecting those coasters/ whatever that they give out in collaboration cafes).
If the vania collabs brings in the money, I just hope Konami puts it in developing something new.

Empty collaborations reek of a PachinKonami sacrificing their once beloved franchise harder than Griffith sacrificed the original Band of the Hawk/ Falcon… 🏹 🦅💥🩸
