Most of the lines are said by Nakigitsune's fox.
Well, well, this is the Uchigatana crafted by Sahyoenojo Fujiwara Kuniyoshi from Awataguchi School. This particular sword is called Nakigitsune. The peculiarity lies in the fact the name is carved on the different side!
If you compare Nakigitsune's sword with others, with the signature facing the same way, his blade appears upside-down.
Fox: Well, well, this is none other than the Kamakura-period uchigatana, he who is named Nakigitsune. I am his companion fox! Nakigitsune: ......Please take care of me.
C'mon, c'mon, stop by right here and take a look around!
This line is something a vendor at a bazaar or street stall would shout to attract customers.
Touken Ranbu, let us begin without further delay.
Nakigitsune: .......Today, too, please take care of me.
Nakigitsune is not good with socializing, so I help him communicate with others.
As long as the other person has 'fox' in his name, even though they have no relation or connection, Nagikitsune will become sympathetic towards him. It's quite troublesome.
Fox: This is not ventriloquism! I'm nothing but a representative for Nakigitsune. Nakigitsune: That's right. Are you surprised?
Master~, Master. Just where have you run off to?
This will not do, master! Does seeing this helpless form of Nakigitsune not move your heart?
Line removed as of Feb. 18, 2015
Sorry, master. Nakigitsune is currently sleeping......
Citadel (Kiwame sendoff)
Well well well, that one's gone on a journey to obtain new power! How moving!
Hoho, master has great taste.
Certainly! I will support Nakigitsune in leading the corps.
Aa~ah, thank you for your generosity.
Hm hm, are you telling us to use this?
With this, Nakigitsune's strength is that of 10 people...... no, 100!
It will be lonely, but we will come back as soon as we can. Please don't forget me and Nagikitsune!
Expedition Completed (Leader of Expedition Party)
Now, now, please look at the fruit of our labors!
Expedition Completed (Leader of Primary Party)
Ooh, an expedition corps has come back just now.
A new comrade, we're getting stronger.
Well, master! Please accept this!
Repairs (minor injury)
Well then, let us begin grooming my fur! ...Huh? That's not why we're here?
Repairs (medium/severe injury)
Yes, yes, leave the job of nursing Nakigitsune to me!
Ooh, this swelling spiritual power.....! My fur is puffing up too.
Master~ it seems a mission has been completed.
Ooh~ This is master's record?
Understood, Master! My silver tongue will surely make any potential negotiations go in our favour, huh?
Front Lines & Battles
Come, we're heading for the front!
Oh~ This is an unexpected discovery.
Everyone, please report what you see.
Well, well, it is I, the companion fox of Nakigitsune. Participating now!
Though this is not a real battle, there's no reason for us not to show off our true strength, is there!
Now, Nakigitsune, use all your might for this one blow!
Might also mean: "This is a blow with all of Nakigitsune's might!"
This line will suit the fox's personality more -- since he is somewhat salesman-ish, and this alternate translation is something like showing the extent to which the object you are trying to sell can do -- but I am still uncertain.
Nakigitsune? Nakigitsune, are you okay!?
Fox: Nakigitsune, since they have done this much to you, there's no reason to keep silent, right? Nakigitsune: That's right. I'll return the favor now.
Now then, the number one most dramatic turn-around is about to begin. Watch closely!
Oo~h, this bloodthirsty aura, even one as humble as I can feel it.
Please look at this, master. Nakigitsune's accomplishment.
Nakigitsune: I've gotten stronger. Fox: Oh! At a time like this, it seems even the reticent Nakigitsune cannot help but let his thoughts flow freely! This is so touching!
Nakigitsune! Please open your eyes, please breathe, please stand up......! Ah, is it not working......
Internal Affairs Please go here for special Internal Affairs interactions
(Whimper)...... I don't get along well with other animals......
I did nothing, but Nakigitsune worked hard!
It'd be nice if I could help, but I'm only a humble fox who can't hold tools, after all.
I can hardly wait for the harvesting season!
Well, please go easy on us!
Wow, that was some good sweat shed! Not by me, but by Nakigitsune.
New Year's Greeting
