Say "I Love You" Trailer Dialogue

Discussion in '日本語 (Japanese)' started by Marisa113, Apr 22, 2014.

  1. Hello, I have been learning Japanese (on my own online) and watch a little anime. I saw that the anime Say "I Love You" is being made into a movie that will be coming out on July 12. Very interested (having read most of the manga and all of the anime), I watched the trailer, however since I only know a little Japanese, I was only able to get a little bit of it.

    So, I was wondering if someone could translate it for me including the romaji as well as the English translation.

    I tried to translate as much as possible but they were speaking too fast for me to pick up. I tried my best with what I could, though there's a lot that I wasn't able to catch. Of course, please correct me if my translations were wrong.

    Who is that?
    Tachibana Mei
    Mei Tachibana

    I was able to get bits and pieces of the other dialogue but not enough to fully understand what they were saying.

    To see the original article I found about the movie, search Tender "Say 'I Love You' Trailer Boasts One Direction Soundtrack." It was on Yahoo News.

    Since I'm a new forum member and cannot create links, please just type in the following to access the trailer on YouTube...

    * My notepad programs applies an auto spell check that messes around with my text no matter which language I write in, so I hope it hasn't sneaked some erroneous modification. Generally it should be okay.
    * I did a quick transcription of the trailer.
    * I'm glad mangas, even shojo mangas, have gotten people interested in Japan and/or the Japanese language.
    * Looking at the trailer, it reminded me of Genji monogatari, the jealousy of the court life (here, the school), etc.

    (Until now) I've always thought I didn't need any friends or lovers.

    Also check out Genji monogatari if you like this kind of story ; )
