        Dialogue Notes

        04:47(TV ONLY) Sayaka: “If your Soul Gem has a surplus, you’ll be able to use magic that you’d otherwise be unwilling to, without wasting anything.”
        This is a line that originally confused us when translating, it was worded in a way that would imply “If you have an excess number of Soul Gems, …” but that made absolutely no sense at all. We ended up interpreting it like this, but the surrounding lines, and even the latter part of this line, weren’t exactly clear to us. It ended up just being a recording error, and was fixed in the BD version – “Soul Gem” should be “Grief Seed,” which makes the correct TL: “If you have an overabundance of Grief Seeds, it enables you to use magic that you’d be otherwise unwilling to by squandering them.”

        We’ll leave our original TL in the TV scripts just in case someone actually watches TV, but it is a recording error which resulted in an obvious mis-TL. People who just watch the BD shouldn’t care, the recording and TL are fine there.
        21:05 Kyouko: Why, you… such a thing…
        テメェ(temee – you) has no real English equivalent. It’s just a very disrespectful way to refer to somebody. By the way, 貴様(kisama) has the same feeling as テメェ(temee). We go with a literal TL of “you”, but even if it’s literal it doesn’t capture the full meaning, as English does not have “formal” and “informal” ways to refer to people like this. So we also put it in italics, but now you know.

        Illustrated Witch Reference Book

        Inu Daruma Brothers
        Type: Mascots of the Popular Game

        Inu Daruma Brothers。 Mascot characters of the wildly popular “Dog Drug Reinforcement” dancing game。 Formerly, as masked wrestlers from South America, their energetic matches were so intense that in the moments that they struck the mat, their beat could be felt on the other side of the world, and when that beat was guided to arrival in Japan, the dancing scene plunged into it。 Or something。 By the way, they aren’t witches, and they have absolutely no connection to witches。

        This entry is an easter egg on the official site’s majo zukan, their picture is invisible in the left menubar.

        End Card

        Illustrator: ウエダハジメ (Ueda Hajime)

        ウエダハジメさん is the mangaka behind the フリクリ(FLCL) manga adaption, and he also did the ED animation for 化物語(Bakemonogatari). By the way, if you flip this illustration horizontally, the girls line up to create the character 死(shi – death).
