Translator's notes
  1. Part of the joke is that Voiceroids are really commonly used among Japanese Let’s Players who don’t want to broadcast their real voice. Yukari pretty much dominates the Minecraft LP scene on Nico Nico Douga. []
  2. The main joke behind this one is that Kotonoha Akane is a Voiceroid product whose main selling point is that she inflects in the Kansai dialect (which has its own stereotypes associated with it, a sort of boisterous slightly country bumpkin type). “se ya na” (translated here as “’kay, yeah”) is a textbook stock Kansai dialect phrase, among with the other things Akane says here. (The standard dialect equivalent of se ya na is “sou da ne”. []
  3. nyurr nyurr” is my attempt at rendering what can be called a guitar onomatopoeia in a way English speakers can recognize (the original is “gyun gyuun”). []
  4. As you can probably see in the video, the original usernames were “Tohoku_imo-to” and “JIKKYOU-KING”. Given the username and icon, Yukari’s sparring partner is presumably Voiceroid and UTAU Tohoku Kiritan, the younger sister of Voiceroid and Vocaloid Tohoku Zunko. []
