Persona O.A. All Conversations

Decided to move these to a separate post since they were taking up a lot of space.

Thanks to the power of unencrypted dialogue scripts, these are complete! …For now, at least. Currently only Morgana/Ryuji/Ann/Yusuke/Futaba are available in the game.
(Titles are not in the scripts and will be added as I unlock them.)

[Translation] FFXIV Yoshida Uncensored 2 – #48

Whoa! I didn’t realize that it’d been over a week since the last one. Whoops.

This time it’s about detective novels. For the record, Yoshi-P is totally writing whatever he wants at this point, and it’s going to be a while before it gets back to FFXIV. Is it even OK to categorize this post under Games? 🤔

Persona O.A. Reference Guide

Mobage are evil but this one has no in-app purchases so it gets a pass. Except no because the loading times are god awful… Why does such a small app take 50-60 seconds to start up? Why is the calendar so buggy? Why does clicking the comment icon on the calendar freeze the app?

But it’s OK. I play this game so that you don’t have to put up with it!

…Where are my Joker events???!??!

[Translation] FFXIV Yoshida Uncensored 2 – #47

Networking 101 continued.

I suspected the columns were getting longer, but originally chalked it up to the font being bigger in this book (or my writing just getting more wordy)… but no, this column was a full 5 pages in the original book. I guess poor Kikuchi-san doesn’t get apologies anymore w

[Translation] FFXIV Yoshida Uncensored 2 – Preface & #45

Probably going to be messing with the formatting for the next few posts, but let’s get this started. As you would expect from Yoshi-P, the first column in this book has nothing to do with FFXIV or game development :v

TL note: I completely localized the first paragraph of #45. The JP term is nekama, an abbreviation of “(inter)net” and “okama” (drag queen).

[Translation] FFXIV – Yoshida Uncensored 1


This is the first compilation of Yoshi-P’s biweekly column in Famitsu.

Translating the entire book before posting was giving me anxiety for some reason, so for #2 I guess I’ll post individual stories as I go…

Idk what else to write so I’ll just copy paste my TL note here:

The Japanese title of this book translates to “Yoshida’s Everyday Candid [Stories]”, which is why you will see the word “candid” a lot. I put the title as “Yoshida Uncensored” because that was the English translation shown on Live Letter presentations, making it at least slightly official. Aside from that, this will be a fairly literal translation because of the nature of the subject matter. Some parts have been slightly modified to match Western terminologies (for example, we often refer to the re-release of FFXIV as just “2.0” or “ARR”. Also, Yoshi-P often flips between first-person and third-person, but I changed it to consistently be first-person. Anything not marked with “TL Note” is present in the original book. This book was published in 2016, so there are a few statements that are now out of date.

[Spoilers] Persona 5 Maniacus – Party Members

The cover says Maniacus in English so I guess it’s Maniacus… Anyway I think the character sections and the interview section would have the most new information; not sure if I’ll do the others yet.

Needless to say this post spoils pretty much everything; DO NOT click in if you haven’t FINISHED the game, etc. Don’t even think about it. Especially if you haven’t played it but are planning on watching the upcoming anime. Seriously, the spoilers are real. (Also I dunno what any of the quotes are in the English version so don’t expect them to match up exactly)

Also I don’t have a scanner so… apologies in advance for the bad pictures. And I know the formatting sucks ;_;

P.S. Of course the bookmark gacha gave me my least favourite party member; I’d ask to trade but anyone that owns this book probably isn’t reading this
