[translation] April 2012 Sylph – DGS/BroCon Scans and Translation

Happy 34th birthday, Ono Daisuke! Congratulations on 10 years as a seiyuu, as well–I wish you many more years of health and happiness!

In honor of OnoD’s birthday, I’ve uploaded and translated scans from the April issue of Sylph, which contains photos and a summary of HiroC’s seitansai in Okinawa. I can’t wait to listen to DGS tomorrow and find out what craziness Kamiya has cooked up for Ono’s birthday.

Other DGS scans from the magazine include an ad for volumes 3 and 4 of the Hibiki manga, a page from the last chapter of Hibiki,  and the cover of the DGS illustration book that was packaged as a furoku with the issue.

I’m not really interested in Brothers Conflict, but I scanned the pages of the preview book that were relevant to HiroC and OnoD. There’s an interview with OnoD on the third page.

Note: These are scans from my personal copy of the issue. If you want to share them, please provide a link back to this page.

Scans and translation below the cut. Enjoy!

[translation] “30minutes Shootin’ Star” by Kamiya Hiroshi and Ono Daisuke

Let me start with the disclaimer that this song makes very little sense in Japanese and therefore probably even less sense in English. About half of it is written either in katakana or romaji in the original lyrics. Still, that’s not really the point. XD It’s a fun, upbeat song for the ending segment of the radio show; HiroC and OnoD invite the listener to take part in the show as their “co-star” and promise to keep DGS going forever. Plus, you get to hear them sing, “It’s a show time~!” multiple times, so what’s not to like?

[translation] “Say Your Name! ~Dear Girl~” by Kamiya Hiroshi and Ono Daisuke

This song was the first track on the original “Dear Girl ~Stories~” album, and it was recently re-released on the “Stories” album. Somehow, “Say Your Name!” feels like old-school DGS; it’s fun to see how much HiroC and OnoD have changed/grown in the ~5 years they’ve been working on the show together. The lyrics are as sweet as ever, at any rate.

[excerpt translation] DGS4LO Audio Commentary Excerpt: Tsundere Kamiya

In which a classically tsundere Kamiya is a little envious of Ono’s birthday celebrations. I remember hearing Ono once say,「神谷さんのツンデレのデレの部分がもっと出てきますように」(“in order that/I hope that the dere side of Kamiya’s tsundere personality will be evident more often”), with which I wholeheartedly agree. It’s cute. (Poor Kamiya, getting thrown out of his own house on a cold January night so that everybody else could prep for the men’s maid cafe. XD I wonder how he enjoyed his birthday celebration in Okinawa this year.)
