What is a book!? A miserable little pile of thoughts!
But enough talk, thank you!

I searched and nothing so I thought I could ask here if anyone ever made a translation of this manual of Akumajou Densetsu:

I would like to request a translation of the story section from Vampire Killer's manual.

After the move of most Germanen, most of the Old Cities of Europe are destroyed, which allow the Middle Age City of 12th to13th century to build. Transylvania, which was build at the late 10th century, was one of the older City that received many influences from Germanen.

In Transylvania, there was a legend about The Hero Christopher. It says that Hero Christopher sealed away Count Dracula, The Dark Lord that awakened by those with evil hearts once every century.

One hundred years after Count Dracula was sealed away. In an Easter night, lightning strike and brightened the darkness. A signal of the Lord of Vampire is once again resurrected. The cities is again haunted by demons and dark disciples.

To save this crisis, a young man who carries the blood of Hero Christopher Belmont, Simon, is now holding the special whip he received from father, and set foot into the castle that dominated by evil...


It's hard to translate Japanese to English, for their grammar are inside out. My grammar wasn't good enough, but at least they are readable. (I hope)

Thank you very much. There's a translation on the Castlevania Realm that is very vague and nonsensical in certain parts. This makes way more sense.

I searched and nothing so I thought I could ask here if anyone ever made a translation of this manual of Akumajou Densetsu:
http://www.vgmuseum.com/mrp/NewCV/manual-jcv3.htm

There's been a translation of the story section, but nothing else. With my current skill level, it would take a long time to translate everything, but is there a particular section you would like to see translated?

Hi! I was dreaming about getting this original manual fully translated and edited to get the complete experience but this is ask too much :)

I think the history section would be great since the official US translations tend to mess things up. Can you please say to me where I can find the history translation?

Thanks but isn't this from the American manual? You mean it's exact the same as the Japanese one?

Anyway no problem it's not like they will have a crazy revelation in the Japanese one :)

Woops, seems like I couldn't link to it directly. Click on "Media", then scroll down to "Text Documents and Help Files",  look under "Other Files", and then click on "Translated Japanese Manual Story".

wow thanks a lot for the patience to point that out :)

I kind of looked around just fast enough so my eyes could fail me and not locate this :(

Can someone please translate the lyrics of this song?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j5SaiuOBBFE

It's the Japanese rock version of "Cross of Fate" from one of the OSTs. Thanks!

Hello! New here to the forums, but watched it as one of my favorite sites for a long time and came upon this thread. I too wish a translation for this song and for the song 'The Legend of the Moon (Original)' in same soundtrack. If someone can translate it, I've provided a scan of the two songs from the booklet (if allowed) as I do own the Akumajo Dracula Best Music Collections Box and have the booklet of it with a page in said booklet containing the lyrics. I hope this is okay & hope to have helped a bit!

I tried to translate both of them but I have to admit it's too difficult for me. These songs contain a lot of flowerly language so it's a bit hard to grasp the meaning sometimes. The best I can do is provide translations of the lines I'm sure about.

My name is Sara

***

As you probably already noticed, the person who is singing this song is supposed to be Sara. This is I think why the names of various characters make an appearance in this song.  Because her soul is contained within the Vampire Killer she technially met all these people. Also note the order in which the characters are mentioned seems to correspond to the release order of the games. Though there are exceptions here and there.     

Cross of Fate is a whole lot more difficult. However, the impression I get is that the person who sings this song is supposed to be Soma. 

Maybe Shiroi could take a shot at this?

Oh, I so hope so as I've seen Shiroi translate various other things here very nicely! >_<

But, still, thanks so much for this translation as I was trying to pick up the some of the characters names Sara mentions in this song, but failed on many of them! It's interesting to see that characters like the Master Librarian, Ferryman, & the Mysterious Merchant were mentioned giving them a nice recognition as much as the main characters. And I totally agree with you regarding Sara knowing all of them in one way or another with her soul being part of the Vampire Killer and all. With this song, it's like you're seeing/hearing the viewpoint of the 'soul of the whip', which makes it really cool & interesting.

And for Cross of Fate, I also get the impression it's Soma whose singing it, which it would be awesome if it was. I totally love this song!

Once again thanks for this rough translation! I really appreciate it! :)
