Talk:Splatune (Splatoon Original Soundtrack)

From Inkipedia, the Splatoon wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search


Splatune's booklet shows some music's lyrics, シオカラ節(Calamari Inkantation), ハイカラシンカ(Inkopolis Sinker), and キミ色に染めて (Ink Me Up). should them be in this page? what I mean, the lyrics are, written in nonsense Hiragana pronounced the sound. I wonder if is it necessary or interesting information? And more, the booklet tells that they use "Mollusk Era" instead of A.D. For example, "Squid Squad's debut was in M.E. 2014 with Splattack!" "The Squid Squad drum member's name is MURASAKI, base is IKKAN, guitar is ICHIYA, Syn is NAMIDA." Do you think, this "Japanese information" are adapted for all region of Splatoon universe? --Azoth (talk) 22:55, 22 November 2015 (UTC)

Oh cool! About the lyrics, I'd say add them as a sub page of Music, like Music/Song Lyrics. Something straightforward like that. Or you could put them on the main page as a collapsible. Whichever makes more sense.
And unless English information is released, it's probably fine to use the Japanese stuff. Maybe put a little note about the fact that their English names and stuff aren't known at this point.
Also, the urchin's dark purple and they name him.... Murasaki. Heh.

Well, Squid Squad members' "Japanese" name can be in the Squid Squad's page with caption "Japanese name", right?--Azoth (talk) 23:12, 22 November 2015 (UTC)
Yeah that sounds good. --Bzeep! talk 23:14, 22 November 2015 (UTC)
P.S. Their names are referencing to Sushi or sea food. For example, NAMIDA(Tear) means Wasabi for Sushi chef. MURASAKI(dark violet) means Shoyu(Soy sauce). Is that a superfluity?--Azoth (talk) 23:18, 22 November 2015 (UTC)
Ohhh yeah, add that too. Even as someone who sort of knows Japanese, that went over my head. 😰
Japanese Splatoon sure has a lot of references to... eating characters.
--Bzeep! talk 23:26, 22 November 2015 (UTC)
I added their names come from in trivia. and then conversation about their names will be in their page's discussion.--Azoth (talk) 23:56, 22 November 2015 (UTC)

Interview and Translations?

If you look at the page, you can see references to 'interviews' that I put in, bt I don't exactly know how to describe them. I don't think their interviews, but that the best way I could describe them. Also, I'll working on their transcription, but I can't translate them. Jed1ndy (talk) 04:25, 27 November 2015 (UTC)

Nah, it's probably fine to just call them interviews. That is what they are, right? And I'll uh... give the translations a go sometime. Wish me luuuuuuuuck --Bzeep! talk 04:37, 27 November 2015 (UTC)
perhaps I could help something about Japanese if you need. my mother tongue. also I have the CD. --Azoth (talk) 04:39, 27 November 2015 (UTC)
there are 3 Interviews, Squid Squad, Squid Sisters, OCTOTOOL & DJ Octavio. I'll write out the Squid Sisters' section, may I? --Azoth (talk) 04:45, 27 November 2015 (UTC)
Of course you can! Any help is appreciated. Jed1ndy (talk) 05:12, 27 November 2015 (UTC)
Oh my gooooooood DJ Octavio interview
praise the lord
But yeah put the Squid Sisters one, I'm interested to see that too. :0 --Bzeep! talk 04:54, 27 November 2015 (UTC)
To be more correctly, these sentences are music criticism by fictitious person.--Azoth (talk) 05:05, 27 November 2015 (UTC)
Oh. Um. Crap. Well now I understand why Jed was wondering what to call them... --Bzeep! talk 05:30, 27 November 2015 (UTC)
I replaced any references of interviews to articles for now, since we don't really know what to call them. I guess once we know what they say, we can properly label them. Jed1ndy (talk) 22:29, 28 November 2015 (UTC)

double-byte character

How do we do for this? We Japanese sometimes use the double-byte character for Arabic numerals and Alphabets for printings. the reason is for printing character set. We Japanese have no special meaning in that. For internet, single byte characters are suitable, We think. --Azoth (talk) 07:11, 27 November 2015 (UTC)

I can think of a couple options. We could fill out commit to either one; but the alphabet might start to look a little "strange" with double-byte characters, and single byte characters don't seem to really fit in with the rest of Japanese. I personally use double-byte characters for all a character except for the alphabet and maybe some punctuation. Of course, we could also have it where all digits and letters are single-byte and everything else is double-byte. Jed1ndy (talk) 08:26, 27 November 2015 (UTC)
As a Japanese sense, We use !, ? and & in only Japanese sentences. In the case of English sentences, we still use !, ?, and &. No double-byte Arabic numerals and Alphabets. Even if we use single byte Arabic numerals and Alphabets instead of double-byte, Usually nothing is missing in Japanese sentences. (As a Japanese person's opinion.) Basically, Inkipedia is for English speakers. Double-byte Arabic numerals and Alphabets are the worst legacy of typewriter and movable type age in Japan. --Azoth (talk) 08:46, 27 November 2015 (UTC)


I've done translations of the Articles as I can. But I know, it's unnatural and might be something wrong with these. Yes, these are really tough works. But, I need some help. I want them brushed up by English speakers. I made these translations literally from Japanese sentences as I can. But, I made several points deliberately according to splatfest. For example, "till all are one", from Transformers. (Not so different meaning from original sentence, I think.) The original sentence has"Boke and Tsukkomi" and "Singing, Dancing", from Japan Splatfest and EU/OC Splatfest. So I added something from NA Splatfest. It's totally just only my thought. these are referencing to the themes. I want to these translations get better. --Azoth (talk) 14:33, 8 December 2015 (UTC)

Okay, I'll take a peek. Thanks for putting em in. ✨ --Bzeep! talk 22:45, 8 December 2015 (UTC)
Thanks so much. I'm always helped by you. I can tell Japanese slang's meaning. A few of slang words and confusing words are being in the original sentences. Please ask me when you find some unfamiliar words. --Azoth (talk) 23:36, 8 December 2015 (UTC)
I'll try to help as well, if I'm not too late. Jed1ndy (talk) 12:13, 10 December 2015 (UTC)
Thanks! My taught is basically "Natural sentences for English speakers". I don't think it's so important that sentences are translated literally without any missing meanings. Unless so different. In this case, I think it should be like "music commentator's sentences". That's out of my skill, unfortunately. Feel free to edit, if you think your edit is better. My work was totally less than a half of all. You can't be late, can make them better anytime. --Azoth (talk) 00:59, 13 December 2015 (UTC)
Sorry that I haven't had the time to work on them! I'll probably go and fix them up over the weekend. --Jed1ndy (talk) 17:45, 17 December 2015 (UTC)
Some of the wording in the translations could use a little cleaning up, I think. I'll try to take some time to work on this as I have the time. Thanks for your hard work getting what you have so far. --KingStarscream (talk) 23:42, 19 January 2016 (UTC)

Turquoise October Article Collapse

Forgive me if I'm being a bit stupid here, but the article at the bottom of the page about Turquoise October and DJ Octavio doesn't seem to want to collapse properly like the other ones, and I can't seem to figure out why. Can anyone else fix this? I suspect this may be my problem - if so, I'm sorry! GloverMist (talk) 10:50, 20 February 2019 (UTC)

I don't think it's your problem—it's not working on my end either. It's just showing the actual code instead of doing what the code is telling it to do. I have no idea why this is happening; I checked the code and nothing that I know of is wrong with it. --SundaeSquidS Weapon Main Octobrush.pngTalk 12:55, 20 February 2019 (UTC)
I didn't know what went wrong, but I ended up copying and pasting an above section, and re inserting the text, and it did the trick. I then removed the music links, as it's a quote and links shouldn't be there, when I realised TntMatthew had already fixed the error.  KA467 🗩 🖿   13:40, 20 February 2019 (UTC)
Well, thanks for your help, guys, it's really useful! I knew it had to be something minor like that. GloverMist (talk) 14:14, 20 February 2019 (UTC)
