‘Sup, wassup, it’s pushing 5 A.M. here. I super hate sleeping through the night on my weekends, as that’s the best time for me to work out of the entire week, but here we are. Anyhow, I spend a chunk of the afternoon chattin’ it up with Esper. After we talked about how freaky it is that there are, like, 120 more episodes of Naruto than there are the Simpson’s, we threw some updates at one another.
Jeepers. This was something I accidentally forgot about in my drafts. It’s a month late but some of the news is still relevant.
In the meantime, esperknight gave me permission to post a tasty surprise first!!
Okay, okay, last update for the day. Isn’t it nice that there are so many vocal tracks in this game? This will wrap the lyrics up for Linda Cubed.
Niconico 【高山みなみ】Linda3 「トライアゲイン」【PCE版】
I didn’t actually know that Linda’s VA herself sang this song (I damn well should have though). It’s really lovely, and I like it leagues more than Linda’s Theme. I’ve yet to figure out how to properly get those niconico embeds to work, but if you can follow the link and get an account, you can hear the song. Anyhow, here are its lyrics.
Thought I’d translate another FMV from the game. It starts at about 12:50 in the video, but it’s the frequently mentioned bathroom scene from Linda Cubed Again. I’ve been tackling the story in my spare time (which has slowed down Napple Tale’s progress significantly, but esper’s been gracious enough to build another test copy for me to search and destroy any other lines, then there are menus to dick around with and eventually I have to actually look Straynap’s awful handwriting square in the eye and finish the other 40-sumthin poems. A first-world problem worth running from, I’d say, haha.
Linda – Takayama Minami, Ken – Yao Kazuki, Character Design – Cannabis (Tatsuyuki Tanaka)

Linda: Hey! Hey, Ken! Look at this! See? It’s a really pretty star!
Ken: What？Isn’t that Earth？
Linda: I decided that that’s where I’ll go for my honeymoon!
Ken: That’s stupid! Who else would go with someone like you on a honeymoon?! And didn’t the teacher tell you？The coordinates to that star were lost in an accident ages ago!
Linda: Well, Ken, we’ll just have to keep looking. Right ’till we’re all grown up!
Ken: Huh？L-look for what?
Linda: It’s a deal！
Ken: Hey, wait a minute！
Linda: And when we find it, I’m gonna be your bride！
Ken: HUH？……Don’t talk nonsense……
