Sakura Taisen 5: Saraba Itoshiki Hito Yo Walkthrough

Also known as Sakura Wars 5, the next instalment of the long-running Sakura Taisen series, Assume the role of Shinjirou Taiga, a Japanese navy officer as you travel to New York during 1927, where you and your team of mechs must battle monsters. Sakura Taisen translates to "Great War Among the Cherry Blossoms." first seen on the Sega Saturn in 1996. Scoring an 8.9 on gamestats richter scale.

Definitely one for game importers as there is no mention of a US release date any decade soon. And where would you find a game importer? well by scrolling down the lefthand sidebar of a certain gnome. The Elderly gamer, bringing you walkthroughs for games you'll probably never play.

I would never say "Saraba Itoshiki Hito Yo" to anybody I know... I think.

Gamer C. said...

Why, what does it mean?

gnome said...

No idea whatsoever... It just sounds nasty, doesn't it?

The Elderly said...

literal translation

"Cherry tree great war V - good-bye it comes dearly, the person"

stab in the dark translation

Great Cherry Tree War five, it really hurts to say goodbye

r

if five cherry trees fell on you it would hurt alot before you passed out.


However you would need to be standing some distance away were you to utter "Saraba Itoshiki Hito Yo" to a complete stranger. I agree it does sound harsh...

gnome said...

See? My japanese intuition sense did just fine...well, almost.

Oh, and that's quite an impressive bit of translation Mr. Elderly!

LoL too...

The Elderly said...

your japanese intuition is indeed....very....japanese, so much so that one would ponder the possibility of an oriental influence in the Gnome bloodline, so one would, would one.

wouldn't one? for else of course one would be wrong and I should maybe try a nine wood.

gnome said...

I can do nothing but bow in front of your eloquent greatness Mr. Elderly.

Then, one would, exactly as I shall, go check whether anyone in my family had intercourse (of any sort) in Japan. But who would? And why? Was it the costumes? The cosplay perhaps? Who would be able to know such things?

Gamer C. said...

So it means that? Huh, and I though Mr. Gnome was making up something to fool my feeble, gulliable mind.

Oh, that reminds me. I need to go plant those magical beans.

Great translation Elderly.

The Elderly said...

gnome i'm perturbed that such a discourse could upset a finely tuned domestic equilibrium, even to broach the subject over desert (an optimum bonding time) could I fear give rise to the use of the heimlich manoeuvre........somethings are best left a mystery.

(bows from the waist) thank you gamer c, the planting of magical beans is a commendable action, I concur that gnome leaves us dumbfounded from time to time, an inherant trait found in the gnome species, according to wikipedia a survival technique once used effectively against ogres, but now redundant.

It's those cursed late night, drunk comments. I guess I'll try to avoid them...

The Elderly said...

no....some of your best comments are made under the influence......come to think of it.....so are mine. I'm sober now..

gnome said...

I'm not... Still got Tequilla in my blood! Lot's of it!

The Elderly said...

I know who to ask for a transfusion then....

gnome said...

:)

I'm afraid of needles though.

The Elderly said...

damn and I thought i'd just hit on a great way of recycling tequila.......oh well thank heavens theres no shortage....

gnome said...

Amen to that!

The Elderly said...

fraid of needles myself, well not afraid really...petrified would be a better description...

gnome said...

not pertified, paralyzed actually

The Elderly said...

pertified is better, they can't get the needle in........paralyzed they have too much lee way.......famous needle moment, was grabbing a dentist by the tie when he attempted to re-anesthetise my gum...oh the shame.......nice tie though.

gnome said...

A precious memory I'm sure!

:)

Dentists, pah...

The Elderly said...

precious indeed and an adequate warning to would be piercing people to restrain me first...or at least let me hold the teddy bear
