Arkhangelsk's Webpage

OK. One day, I decided I needed a webpage (actually, I needed to upload a picture and it was the other choice to using "ImageShack" or equivalent). So I found one that promised a lot of space, some 150MB, and applied. Shortly after, I realized that I have ridiculously little to add to it and no traffic to speak of. To make some use out of that space, I've decided it'll be a repository for Magical Girls Lyrical Nanoha stuff.

Magical Lyrical Nanoha StrikerS "Magical Dictionary" (魔法辞書) Translation and Commentary

Disclaimer: Of course, the translator does not own MGLN. 7Arcs and King Studios does. If the translator actually had some control, StrikerS would have gone quite differently. The author believes that it is Fair Use to translate the Magical Dictionary into English as a public service, and far from damaging the commercial interests of 7Arcs and/or King Studios, will only promote it.
Following are my own crude translations from the DVD Booklets' Magical Dictionary. I think someone else on AnimeSuki are working on these as well, but that effort seemed to have limped off somewhere. So while some requested terms are translated, more than half of the items still lack translations. Instead of waiting for them, I think I'll just translate them myself. The translation may seem a bit stiff because 1) I'm inexperienced and thus I favor keeping the meaning even if the translation comes out a bit stiff.

The translator passed the JLPT Level 2 last year. Despite the boisterous claims of the JLPT organizers, I feel nowhere close to comfortable in making daily conversations with Japanese. However, it would seem that at some point, I've actually learnt enough Japanese that I can start to enjoy stuff written in that language.

Please propose corrections / refinements at the Nanoha Animesuki forum.
