Namja Town Theme Park: Story and Character Bios

Hi all! It’s been a few months since I’ve posted to the blog (sorry, sorry…), but things are going really well with Napple Tale! I have a lot I’d like to share soon, but please hang tight just a little longer! ❤ Today’s post will be a bit big and not (totally) related to video games, but I hope you get a kick out of it.

See, I didn’t mention this on the blog much, if at all, but I went to Japan in November! It was my first time, but hopefully not my last. There was so much we got to explore, but one thing that pleasantly surprised me and stuck with me was Namja Town. See, Namja Town is a small theme park located on the second floor inside Sunshine City(a large mall in Ikebukuro, Tokyo), just below J-World!

Anyway, Namja Town is an old-timey little town(mostly Showa era/1950s in theme) and home to a variety of interesting denizens. You mostly have cat people, but also birds and ghosts! There are also lots of collaboration events, attractions restaurants inside. They make lots of adorable desserts and are mostly known for their gyoza. Unfortunately, a lot else beyond the food and the sight-seeing is cut off from foreign visitors due to the high language gap. I thought I’d take the time and translate at least the basic introductions of the town and characters from the official website right here!

Shaman King: Funbari Spirits Story LP Translation (17/17) (BBQ EVENT)

It’s cute that they let Yoh and the rest in on the Mountain Training sausagefest from the manga. Regardless of the circumstances in the manga, I thought it was interesting and a little sad that Yoh didn’t spend crazy amounts of time with his dad, since they both seem to have a mutual love/trust/respect for one another.

Also, this is it for the Funbari Spirits story translations I’ll be done. It doesn’t mean I won’t take the time to translate the Battle Mode endings here and there, but for now, I’m satisfied with the little break this gave me, and I hope it entertained you SK fans as well!
