Megamission translation
« on: November 15, 2008, 06:11:24 PM »
Also using google's magic, I found this a few weeks ago:

http://asadori.blogspot.com/search/label/Megamission%201

The translation was done by "Asadori", the card where X (Ikusu) is introduced is missing and it doesn't seem to be that good of a translation. Still, along with Rockman Tanjou's translation of the manga, it helps with the understanding of Megamission.

Because the above site suffers from occasional automatic redirects, I'm quoting the translation here:

A note on "Ikusu". They use these very same katakanas to name X's EX Armor and Zero's EX Armor.

So I guess you could chalk it up to him being named "EX" before "Return X" anyway.

Far as I remember he comes back toting himself as "Return X", which I've seen many times shortened to "RX". Probably because he wants to be as cool as a child of the sun. Give it up, you freakin' pallete swap.

Aww, but I liked RX! He wasn't just a pallete swap, he was the Forte of the RMX series. I think he should have been given an actual part. Terra's forever-unfinished comic, at www.stardroids.net, put a much-needed spin on the character.

Excuse the necropost. I had a brain fart when I noticed this topic about ten minutes after finding Asadori's site on google :P

Anyways, I'm trying to get whatever I can out of the MegaMissions cards. Namely armor names, weapons, and such. Have you found anything else, Zan?

Also, on the subject of Return X, who I adore, how is the X pronounced on his revived form? Still the same as Ikusu?

A note on "Ikusu". They use these very same katakanas to name X's EX Armor and Zero's EX Armor.

So I guess you could chalk it up to him being named "EX" before "Return X" anyway.
Ikusu Armor?

The have the katakanas for "IKUSU" instead of "EKKUSU" in his Return X form too (リターン イクス), yes.
Quote
Ikusu Armor?
You see, even if it's the very same katakana the way they romanize X's-evil-Limited-clone in the toy manuals is... "X". Exactly that. Quotes included. To differ between "EX" and X proper, they always call X "Rockman X" then. But why they're romanizing the same katakana differently, don't ask me.

Also, does that mean I've also been saying the All X (Ekkusu) armor wrong, too? (All Ikusu Armor)

But what about the actual cards?
When "Ikusu"'s name is romanized in the cards, it also says X. But then they have the katakanas together. So you basically have "X -エックス- vs. X - イクス-" as the name of one of the cards even.

Quote

I don't think it's wrong since it's what they romanized it as. But I really don't know why they're riding with "イクス" most of the times standing for X, and others for "EX".

At least as fr as names are concerned there are some errors in these summaries - EX Armors appear only in Mega Mission 3 (and upon closer inspection in the back of the cards proper they're called X Armors and they apparently are derived from RX as well), in MM2 the armor has 3 different armor names, the final being Giga when the armor's transferred to X.

iX, Ikksu, Irregular X, al = "X" with different writing. Ikksu, =/= Ekksu (Rockman X)
hence his name is actually also X. to the english reader there is no difference. to the japanese reader, they clearly see the difference, as if I spelled Flame as Fleym.
also, RX is Return Ikksu. cuz he's, well, Ikksu returned. >_>;
...When Larry the reploid accountant goes maverick of his own accord, he's certainly formidable during tax season, but he isn't going to provide X the challenge needed to make him grow as a warrior and reach his potential.

Fer serious? Yowza. Good thing nothing remotely close to that was said in the thread!

Point was that the toys romanized イクス as EX for the armors.

Yeah, well since there is that whole X-X thing, he is often called iX. cuz well, thats technically how we the english reader should pronounce his name. we pronounce X as ekks, and he is Ekksu and if X is ikksu, we should pronounce it ikks. hence, iX (though its also to differentiate the names. It is often misassumed that the i means "irregular" X, which is not the case.) , almost always. the armor kits did similar and said EX. Some of them also say "All X armor", no? that means All Ikksu armor. I assume they wanted to avoid confusion
