Ignis hasn’t quite finished the trainwreck that is animating the typesetting of the train trivia (the animations don’t really differ from week to week, so it’s mostly just switching the text at least) yet, so bear with another pastebin. Or don’t; I’m not your mother.
Feel free to take a look at the pastebin above, which includes the translations for the ED’s train trivia. We’re planning to typeset this monstrosity, but it will take some more time and it’s not worth hanging up the rest of the episode.
Speaking of translation, there’s a joke here already that we went full Nossan with: after they introduce themselves as ToQGers, the monster replies “I don’t care if you’re Donkougers or ToQGers.” This is clever you see, as the ToQGers take their name from tokkyū or limited express train. Donkou is the slowest kind of train, one that stops at every single station. Translating the fake name in the gag renders it a non sequitur rather than comedy, so the options were either translate the show name along with it (for a one off gag, this is absurd) or do what we did. So now you know.
EDIT: Re: “Right”: We went with this for the following reasons:
- In a trivia segment at the end of the episode (not included in the raw), the character asks the viewers if his name is Right or Left.
- There was a dumb rumor that their names are light in multiple languages the same way the villains are black in multiple languages, but nobody ever gets beyond Hikari (indisputable) and Raito (potential). Finding that there is a Tokachi class train (it’s even blue) suggested that the theme was more obvious, but we couldn’t pin down all five, even with our resident train otaku around.
Since it’s the start of a new show, I’ve decided to take pity on
myselfyou and include a shiny copy of the newest xdelta3.exe in the patch. If you aren’t running Windows it’s not useful to you (neither is the bat that is always there), but for the people that are and haven’t yet grabbed a copy, now you have one. Don’t expect them weekly; the program doesn’t really change much so there’s no point in me uploading or you downloading the extra bits repeatedly.

Traingers are a go. No ETA atm because it was literally just decided thirty minutes ago and some of the people involved are already asleep.
Raw’s gonna take a while though.
p.s the whole point of this post is to spread this pic around, because it is awesome
