In Japan, an otome The King of Fighters game is available for mobile devices. To celebrate the first New Year’s with the app, B’s Log has shared new year’s messages from Kyo Kusanagi, Iori Yagami, Terry Bogard, Maxima, Nagi, and Robert Garcia. Each one speaks to the manager, the role the player takes in the game.
Here are the translations of the New Year’s messages from six of the guys from The King of Fighters for Girls.
First, there’s a message from Kyo, who is voiced by Tomoaki Maeno in the game. It refers to
I have a manager this year, and I’m going to be in the dojo too.
Huh? Cleaning the dojo?
Well, I can’t just leave it to you.
Let’s finish it quickly, then let’s go for the first shrine visit.
The end of Kyo’s message is referring to hatsumode, a Japanese tradition where people visit a temple for the first shrine visit of the new year.
The second message is from Iori, who is voiced by Takanori Hoshino.
Huh, New Year’s Eve? There’s a live countdown performance.
Woman… even if you didn’t have such a plain face, there’d be a seat for you.
I’ll be back as soon as the live is over.
That cat has the same face as you.
The “live” portion refers to the fact that Iori is a part of a band.
After that, Terry had a message. He’s voiced by Takashi Kondo in The King of Fighters for Girls.
Andy and Joe are going to see the first sunrise in Japan.
I was thinking of going to a bar for New Year’s eve, but… if you’re going, that’s a different story.
You want to say “Happy New Year’s” to an important person first?
As a reminder, the Andy and Joe here refer to his brother Andy and Joe Higashi. The three tend to appear on the same team, which has been known as both the Italy Team and Fatal Fury Team.
The next message comes from Maxima. His voice actor is Katsuyuki.
I tell a fortune with an orange on the kotatsu, New Year’s Eve soba, and hatsumode…
… What is too sticky?
Haha. If I can, I want to spend New Year’s Eve peacefully.
If it’s not too much to ask, it would be nice if you could be there… how about it?
Like Kyo, Maxima brings up the traditional first shrine visit of the new year. He also brings up the winter tradition of sitting around the kotatsu, a table with a heater built into it, and eating soba for New Year’s.
The second to last The King of Fighters for Girls New Year’s message comes from Nagi. He’s voiced by Daisuke Hirakawa.
I like the air on New Year’s Day.
A day of new hopes and resolutions are in the hearts of everyone for the new year.
A day full of clear thoughts… That’s it.
I’m going to hatsumode with Yomi and Hime this year, and I’ll make a wish.
Nagi is a new character created for The King of Fighters for Girls, as is Yomi. The two are on an original team called Shinsekai. It seems like here’s referring to the player as a “princess” in his message.
Finally, Robert has the last message. He’s voiced by Kazuhiro Okamoto.
Is it the end of the year? Let’s celebrate.
I’ll take you wherever you want to go.
What do you want to do? Just say it now.
For me, being with a young lady is the most luxurious thing.
The King of Fighters for Girls is available for Android and Apple iOS devices in Japan.
