Scout! Coloured Flower Cards, Chapter 1

Writer: Akira

Season:
Summer

Characters:
Souma Kanzaki, Keito Hasumi, Natsume Sakasaki (and Anzu)

Location:
2-A Classroom

T/L notes:
  • Souma and Anzu are playing a card game called 'Koi-Koi' using Hanafuda (wikipedia link)
  • By becoming the 'oya' (parent/dealer), Souma is gaining the 'lead' (winning in terms of the flow of the game)
  • Souma's 'lessons' (keikogoto) refer to the traditional arts such as tea ceremonies, flower arrangements, dance, music etc.
  • The title for the stories are "Asaki Yume Mishi", which is a line in the Iroha poem (wikipedia link). I cut the title short to just 'Superficial Dreaming' but the full meaning is "throughout my life, I've been having superficial dreams" [and continuing with the poem, "thus I shall not be deluded any longer"]

Sub Story: Hiyori Tomoe, Part 1

Writer: Akira

Characters: Hiyori Tomoe and Anzu

Season: Summer

Location: Corridor

Unlock:
During the special campaign introducing Reimei Academy for the upcoming Kiseki story

Links:  

T/L Notes: 
  • When Hiyori refers to Yumenosaki Academy as a “den”, it’s in a very negative light. The word has connotations of housing disreputable people. 
  • Near the end, Hiyori admits that only he can truly understand himself. The word he uses is “koutei” which is synonymous in pronunciation to the Japanese word for “emperor” (re: Eichi). This is only an interesting tidbit depending on how deeply you read into Akira-sensei’s stories.  
T/L notes for Hiyori’s character:
  • Ending almost all sentences with “ne” – ‘ne’ is used for affirmation or confirmation, but Hiyori uses it incessantly to the point that it can be annoying to most people because it no longer feels like he’s asking, and just simply craving approval/acknowledgement (this is reflected in his somewhat hypocritical personality). 
  • His catchphrase, “Yoi Hiyori” & “Warui Hiyori” – literally translated, it’s “Good Hiyori” and “Bad Hiyori”. The word ‘hiyori’ can also refer to the weather forecast. As a pun, I went with “fine Hiyori” and “downcast Hiyori” because he uses this catchphrase to describe his condition (and whatever follows feels like a prediction of his mood). However, I’m open to just leaving it if it’s decided later on to be too troublesome for everyone!
 
Thanks a bunch to Berry (@berryknights) for providing the screenshots because I was too lazy to do it myself; you're the real MVP!! :'D

Sub Story: Souma Kanzaki, "Sword Dance"

Writer: Akira

Characters: Souma Kanzaki and Anzu

Season: Summer

Location: Ground

Unlock: (Way of the Katana) Souma Kanzaki

Links:  

T/L Notes: 
“Chest” is a shout that Samurai back in the day used when engaging in battle with one another. You can think of it as ‘En garde’, ‘Here I come’, ‘Prepare yourself’ etc. It signals that you’re ready to clash and that there’s nothing else on your mind. Previously, I’ve translated this depending on the context Souma uses it in, but since this whole story is about his katana, I decided to leave it as it is here.
“Jigen-Ryu” is a martial arts school focusing mainly on swordsmanship.
“arubaito” means part-time job.
“Sexagenery Cycle” is an old East-Asian calendar for counting time periods. You’ll be more familiar with its use in the Chinese Zodiac. Apparently, even Souma’s choice of hyperbole is archaic. Bless.
I took liberty when translating over “I failed not once, but twice”. The phrase is “abuhachi torazu” where you try to do two things at the same time and end up accomplishing neither. The English equivalent would be “between two stools you fall to the ground”.

Photoshoot! Warm Athletics, Prologue 2

Writer: Yuuki Yoshino

Characters:
Souma Kanzaki, Adonis Otogari and Anzu

Season:
Spring

Location:
Notice board

Summary:
Anzu discusses the job with Souma and Adonis.

Links:
 Enstar Wiki 

T/L Notes: 
  • When Souma mentions how he wants them to participate to “refresh themselves”, the exact word he uses is “hashi yasume”, which literally translates over to “resting your chopsticks” or in the English equivalent, “entremets”. This is a dish that you eat in-between meals as a sort of ‘breather’ or a ‘break’ from the main course. Souma uses these terms and phrases casually because his character enjoys cooking. I only carried over the meaning, but this translation note is for your benefit (the more you know~)

  • The title for the story is “Moe yo Taiga”, literally meaning “burn(ing) up (with enthusiasm) Tiger”. I’ve instead adopted the title “Enter the Tiger” as a cultural allusion to Bruce Lee’s 1973 martial arts film, “Enter the Dragon”. This is Tetora, after all :)
