Quotes from the children (Zelda: Majora's Mask)

Post by Iyionaku » Wed 10 Jan 2018, 16:16

As there have not been many translation challenges in last time, I thought I'd revive the section a little. In the computer game Zelda: Majora's Mask, there are some pretty interesting quotes from some "children" in the end of the game that I thought would be nice as a challenge.

:eng: English

All: Heh heh... Thanks... You're nice. Umm... Can I ask... a question?

Odolwa: Your friends... What kind of... people are they? I wonder... Do those people... think of you... as a friend?

Goht: You... What makes you...happy? I wonder... What makes you happy... Does it make...others happy, too?

Gyorg: The right thing... What is it? I wonder... If you do the right thing... Does it really make... everybody...happy?

Twinmold: Your true face... What kind of... face is it? I wonder... The face under the mask... Is that... your true face?

Majora: Do you want to play with me? OK, let's play good guys against bad guys... I'll be the good guy, and you'll be the bad guy, and when you're the bad guy, you just run.

[Feel free to skip the ellipsis points if they bother you!]
Heaven and Earth, but I feel the color of the cake when you keep the Victoria.
I had a mantra on the moss and I had to go to bed.

Oh, and there is a [ɕ] in my name!
