Hiero? Halo? High Low?
« on: August 19, 2007, 03:35:47 PM »
Hello everyone... Ryuusoul from Revolve Translations here...

I'm in the middle of translating all the picture files for MBAC. Since all the movelists are picture files, there's quite a bit of them.

Ciel has a move called ハイロゥ.

When I translated the manual before, I think I just used a translation of the term I saw earlier, which was "Hiero". But looking back at it, it doesn't really make much sense to me. If anything, ハイロゥ in Japanese is commonly romanized as "Halo". Some people say it's "High Low" because there's a high and low movement in there...

Does anyone know where this term came from? Any thoughts?

Oops. Later on, there's also a move called "Angel ハイロゥ", which leads me to believe it may be "Angel Halo", so maybe it is Halo after all.

Of course, this may be one of those bad Nasu puns.

Thoughts are still welcome, of course.

Well, all the help I can give you is, if it's romanized to Halo, its probably pronounced Hay-row or something of the sort. Can't help you much though =/
what the fuck is this game

Hey Ryuusoul! I'd probably vote for Halo, if only because Ciel is a Burial Agent and the angel allusions would fit her character design.

By the way, good luck with Kouma's move names. Holy hell I had no idea what the hell they could translate into.

While I agree with Arileth on the angel allusions bit, it doesn't seem to give justice to what the move actually does. Either that or I just find Hiero to sound more badass or something. :P

Also, maybe this thread could help: http://www.meltybread.com/forums/index.php?topic=73.0

Halo sounds good to me. 
<Xenozip> actually i think miyako was intuitive for linalys
<Xenozip> simple because his playstyle is.. well..

Maximum Spider ROLF...

I'll go with Halo.... It makes sense because of Ciel's background.

I wanted to vote for Hiero simply because of this line: "Hiero was the brother of Gelo and tyrant of Syracuse" but Halo, as everyone else has already stated, makes more sense.

Thanks everyone. I went ahead and used "Halo".
