Dear Vocalist ~ A’ ~

Posted on Updated on

A’ (エーダッシュ)
CV: Kimura Ryouhei (木村 良平)

(A Very Good Boy right here. A’ makes my heart hurt because he’s such a sweet darling but he has such a real issue. I’m sure that if you were to look at the DSM-5 he’d check out on everything for bipolar disorder. Kudos to the heroine and how she supports him because this boy is a roller coaster. HIS SECOND SONG IS SO SAD!!)

Story premise is that these 6 boys have bands that are managed by Climax Records and though they have talent they have… their own problems. One day, the music executive (or executive producer) tells the boys that this is their last song. And so they’re all betting their survival on these last songs. Can you, as their girlfriend, support them? (Each boy has a different girlfriend).

Dear Vocalist ~ Ciel ~

Ciel (シエル)
CV: KENN

(SLAMS HANDS DOWN. HUSBAND IS HERE. I LOVE THIS MAN SO MUCH!!! HE GIVES SUCH GREAT LIFE LESSONS IN HIS CDs BECAUSE HE’S RIDICULOUSLY MATURE, CONSIDERATE, AND PROFESSIONAL. HE’S ALSO A KABEDON MANIAC AND HAS THE PERFECT GROWL-Y VOICE.)

Note: His Animate, Tower Record, and Stellaworth tokutens + sample voices are translated (because what’s the point of translating other than to spoil my biases (ᅌᴗᅌ✿ )… jk jk).

Judah (ジュダ)
CV: Saitou Souma (斉藤 壮馬)

(Um, this guy doesn’t have a great personality either… LOL I PROMISE THEY GET BETTER. MY HUSBAND IS UP NEXT SO!! But, to be honest, Judah is a good boy; he just likes to act strong and bluff. He loves his girlfriend even though, at the same time, he’s conscious of the awful personality he has. Also, please look forward to his second season CD because “I Can’t Say Goodbye” is his love song and it’s so good).

Momochi (モモチ)
CV: Toyonaga Toshiyuki (豊永 利行)

(LEGITIMATELY THE SCARIEST GUY IN DEAR VOCALIST AND I AM SORRY FOR PUTTING YOU GUYS THROUGH THIS DEMON. Toyonaga has a fantastic singing voice though… and please just bear with me and the best husband Ciel will be coming up after one more volume!!)

Re-o-do (レオード)
CV: Masuda Toshiki (増田 俊樹)

(I’m doing this series to keep things fresh >< I promise I’m still working on LN translations in-between these. Anyway, I have three best boys in this series that I wanted to share with everyone but to fully appreciate them… you have to experience the rest of the guys LOL which is why I’ve picked this series up. Also, dammit, Rejet released a 3rd season of these boys!)

Kare to Soine de Shitai Koto Zenbu ~ Nagamine Tamaki ~

Posted on Updated on

Nagamine Tamaki (永峰 環)
CV: Nakazawa Masatomo (中澤 まさとも)

(I’ve decided on a new Valentines tradition. From now on, I’m going to translate my favorite drama CDs :’) especially now that I’ve finally listened to some fantastic ones that have planted themselves at the top of my list for GOLD STAR content. WARNING: This is R18 so proceed with caution.)

EDIT 2017/05/26: Added the animate and stellaworth tokutens. You’re welcome ;).

Period Cube ~ Poyopoyo ~

Posted on Updated on

Poyopoyo (ポヨポヨ)
CV: Toriumi Kousuke (鳥海 浩輔)

(MY FAVORITE ONE IN THE SERIES. It’s not a spoiler because they’ve revealed it in the scans and character page, which is that Poyopoyo’s true form is Kazuha’s brother. Also, this is the first time I’m doing this but TRIGGER WARNING: there is a torture scene in this CD and lots of bloody sound effects. His brotherly affection is on par with Wabisuke from Gekka Ryouran Romance.)

Background: Kazuha wakes up in a dungeon and has this mysterious informant monster thing that floats around and helps her figure out how to play the game. It’s soon revealed that he’s her brother in disguise and he seems to have some knowledge of the things that are going around in World V.

Period Cube ~ Astrum ~

Posted on Updated on

Astrum (アストラム)
CV: Sakurai Takahiro (櫻井 孝宏)

(Say hello to my second favorite character of this entire series and game. I almost wish the main focus of this game wasn’t about the heroine’s search for her brother but this conflict between angels and devils, because Astrum’s CD makes it sound so much more interesting. THE CONFLICT. IT’S SO GOOD. ALSO I GET SO EMOTIONAL OVER HIS LAST LINES.)

Background: Kazuha is the Divine Sword, Amadeus, which is one of the keys needed to clear the final dungeon that will free everyone from this game. However, the catch is that only the race of the party that clears the dungeon is allowed to leave and Astrum is the leader of the angels so… Astrum’s CD is about his loneliness and not being understood; he’s the one who finds Kazuha in this one.

Period Cube ~ Hiroya ~

Posted on Updated on

Hiroya (ヒロヤ)
CV: Okamoto Nobuhiko (岡本 信彦)

(I’m a terrible person who starts too many projects, but Period Cube is coming out in May and I want people to join me in this Sword Art Online-type hell. THERE IS ONLY ONE CD I REALLY WANT TO SHARE WITH YOU GUYS (volume 6) but I might as well do the entire series. My order is going to be Vol1, Vol4, and Vol6 though before filling in the rest because 1) we need backstory and 2) I have clear biases).

Background: The heroine, Kazuha, and her childhood friend, Hiroya, are searching for Kazuha’s brother, who has seemed to disappear. Their only clue is a cryptic message from her brother telling her not to come to this game server. But they do and end up getting trapped inside! Hiroya’s CD is about his relationship with the heroine and his jealousy of her brother.

Diabolik Lovers Versus II ~ Carla vs. Shin ~

Tsukinami Carla (月浪 カルラ)

Tsukinami Shin (月浪 シン)
CV: Morikubo Shoutarou (森久保 祥太郎)

(Requested by Yellow Apple for this blog’s 3rd Anniversary Giveaway. I wasn’t able to find any other interesting drama CD so I ended up coming back to your first request ;;; I’M SO SORRY FOR HOW LONG IT TOOK. Also, there’s some more background information about these guys and basically everything that is going on in Diabolik Lovers Dark Fate in these three CDs that were translated by Rin from Love-colored Sky).

Shinsengumi Wasurenagusa Kekkonroku ~ Kondou Isami ~

Posted on Updated on

Kondou Isami (近藤 勇)
CV: Inoue Kazuhiko (井上 和彦)

(HAPPY BELATED VALENTINES! I ridiculously missed the date but I wanted to share this as a Valentines gift to everyone. Kondou is one of my favorite characters from the Wasurenagusa series and his Kekkonroku track makes me bawl every time I listen to it. It was really surprising how much I liked him in the second series since I didn’t give him much thought in the first series (translated here by saki). Below will be somewhat of a TL;DR as I gush about why I love this guy).

Jooubachi no Kanbinaru Kougou ~ Hakuoh ~

Posted on Updated on

Hakuoh (白鴎)
CV: Hirakawa Daisuke (平川 大輔)

(A translation as requested by the winner of my anniversary giveaway shoujosei! I’m obligated to give a warning that the text underneath this read more is full of R18 situations so… be warned (・ω\) This will follow the format of my Diabolik Lovers translation posts with time stamps and track names!).

Posted on Updated on

Sakamaki Kanato (逆巻 カナト)
CV: Kaji Yuuki (梶 裕貴)

Sakamaki Reiji (逆巻 レイジ)
CV: Konishi Katsuyuki (小西 克幸)

(We made it everyone! The last round of the VERSUS series! Everyone who has stuck with me up until now deserves a cookie and hugs… and maybe a blood transfusion, haha. Before you ask, I don’t think I’ll be translating More Blood because I have too many projects going on already ;;; but Doropyan has been doing some!).

Posted on Updated on

Sakamaki Subaru (逆巻 スバル)
CV: Kondo Takashi (近藤 隆)

Sakamaki Laito (逆巻 ライト)
CV: Hirakawa Daisuke (平川 大輔)

(Welcome to Round 2 with the audience versus the sadistic vampire brothers! I’m amazed we all haven’t dropped dead yet and, seriously, anyone who’s made it up to this point in this series deserves a cookie. We should all reward ourselves whenever we finish a track. Also, SUPER APOLOGIES FOR THE REALLY LATE TRANSLATION).

Posted on Updated on

Sakamaki Ayato (逆巻 アヤト)
CV: Midorikawa Hikaru (緑川 光)

Sakamaki Shu (逆巻 シュウ)
CV: Toriumi Kousuke (鳥海 浩輔)

(Here’s a treat for you all! I mean, I’m basically the unofficial Diabolik Lovers girl around here now… /)_(\. I figured that since I’ve already translated all 6 volumes and will be playing the game, I might as well just suck it up and translate the Versus CDs as well! You have my OCD to thank for this..

I know that Misty Moon Night on tumblr has been translating the DiaLov Versus series as well, so you can go there to check out her translation too! We have different personal styles so you can check it out~! Don’t expect this to be a perfect translation because some lines were really hard (シ_ _)シ).
