Fujimori Midori no Let's Tarot
Anata mo Kyou kara Uranaishi

which roughly translates to:

Midori Fujimori's: Let's Learn the Tarot
[Starting today] You too can become a master of tarot cards!

This game came out in 2007, and has yet to see a release in the west. I'd like to translate it.

OFFICIAL WEBSITE: http://ds.fujimido.jp/

VIDEOS:

http://ds.fujimido.jp/asx/game003.asx
http://ds.fujimido.jp/asx/game002.asx

The actual game comes with a set of Major Arcana cards and Midori Fujimori (a Japanese tarotist) walks you through on how to read the cards. Anyone who has their own deck of Tarot cards though can also learn along in real life.

When you complete a lesson, Fujimori-sensei will give you presents. You can dress her up in different outfits, she'll even do a reading for you if you want. The game is packed with alot of quizes...and there is ALOT of written dialogue in the game. (Believe me, I know, I unpacked it and took a look through the entire thing.)

I can handle translation as well as assist with graphic editing if there is anyone who wants to help me get this game done. It'd be nice if you were a Tarot enthusiast as well, but its not required if you've got a sincere interest.

Background About Me:

Okay, so I'm a translator, and I'm also good with graphic editing and video editing, but I haven't really done much tile work. (Editing images in Photoshop within a certain palette range would be very easy for me though, I do graphic design work.)

I've studied Japanese for 5 years, worked only for Japanese employers and companies, and I even live with a Japanese roommate...

I'm not trying to brag, but I do want to let it be known that I don't need any help when it comes to translating a game. Infact, I usually just play games in Japanese without the need for a walkthrough or guide.

That being said...why do I want to translate games if I can already play them without needing to know English?

Well, to be honest, I want to give something to the community. I just started learning about tarot cards, and I really would like to see this game translated into English for other Tarot enthusiasts.

I'm on a mac, and it's becoming too difficult for me to take up this project entirely on my own.

So I'd like to ask for some assistance with this game.

Thanks~!

Omg, those cards look adorably cute. I'll be cheering you on from the shadows! If I weren't so damn busy with other stuff I'd totally love to help out with anything except hacking, but I can barely keep up with my own stuff right now, so.. just cheering for now.. ;_;

I hope you'll find some ppl who have the spare time to help you with this!

I totally love the original deck that is sent with the game.

...its a shame that its only Major Arcana...the deck would have been lovely if it was a full deck.

...but then the other part of me is happy that I don't have to translate so many different options for the cards in the game...there is already alot.

I'm happy we atleast have a cheerleader!

hmmm, as far as image files in the game...i didn't search deep enough to find the cards.

the resolution is not the best, but the cards are all posted up on the official website.

if you want the cards, you should buy the game!

If it was in English I would, I love cards ( I found and printed all the Cardcaptor Sakura ones) but since it's not I wont because It would be possible to hack the rom (or the save in some cases) in order to change stuff.

Thx for the images... Is it easy to get the back or it's non-existand?

im not quite sure what youre asking...?

is it easy to aquire the game?

...i dont have a tangible copy myself...but i intend to aquire one as soon as i start working again. (ive been unemployed for a couple of months...i cant afford anything!)

theres some stores on ebay selling it for really ridiculous prices...but...im sure you can find some Japanese sellers and import them through a 3rd party.

while im at it, i got to get spirit tracks in japanese...oh and maybe the new ARASHI calendar for 2010...mwahahahaha >:3

(yey for importing stuff and destroying the american economy!!)

How come I haven't noticed this thread yet...? Yay for the new Translation Index.

I like Tarot, but unfortunately I'm unable to help you with this.
This game looks promising and with my small Tarot book I couldn't learn how to interpret the cards.

I'll be cheering on you, too.
That is, if you're still working on the project.

Anyway, thread saved from oblivion.
Hope I didn't provoke the Thread-Shinigami's wrath.

So exactly what type of help are you looking for? Yes, be presice...
I will dump images insert, extract.
If i have time i will see if I can help with anything else. Note I don't really program hack, but whatever I can do to help...
Aside from this What are your goals for this project?
Menu translation, partial, full?
The font is easy to find,
nice load of text in images to edit but not to heavy...
seems like the text to edit is actually very easy to get to Most actaully is in .txt files
Do you have japanese language support for your system (if not get it)
I can very easily dump most of the text (may even leave it the origianl text files)
So, get back to me on this. post and pm me please

Can't let my step-sister see this or I'll never see my Acekard 2i again. She loves tarot, I do some tarot as well, but I haven't done it in years so I don't know that much (but I do have a couple of decks). What exactly do you need in ways of help?
