So, recently I decided to start playing Harvest Moon in Japanese, hoping to be able to get some use out of this, to practice my grammar, pick up some new words, and have some fun. I thought I would share the experience with you guys, and hopefully get some help, because I know I’m walking in over my head, and maybe you guys can give me some help now and then when I get completely lost, or explain things to me, or whatever. It will (hopefully) be a good study tool for all of us!
Since I’m not very advanced yet, the progress might be slow, so bear with me, I’ll build up a wonderful farm soon enough!
I got to pick my name, my birthday, the name of the farm, and the name of my dog, in that order, here are my answers. I named the person after me, the farm after the site, and my dog a random name my roommate picked.
I was looking around when I got accosted by this gentleman in a red suit, he told me that this farm belongs to his? grandfather that had passed away the other day.
He yelled at us for entering this place arbitrarily(I think?)
after we explained, he asked if we were acquaintances with his grandfather
And asked if we had not heard that he had passed away
In truth, he had died half a year ago.
This one gave me a lot of trouble, but I think he said that he was sorting through some of his grandfather’s bookshelves, and he had found a will. I think I got it right, but it took a lot of searching to find the kanji, and I’m not exactly sure I got any of it right, if someone could give me a hand, that would be wonderful.
The document said that it entrusted this piece of land to someone named Arc
This was another rough one, could someone explain it? I got out of it that he can entrust the land to the person in the will, but I have no idea why it means what it means, or if I’m correct for that matter.
Our character spoke again, and this he was asking if we were really Arc.
I think he was asking if the grandfather had taught us how the farm works, but I’m not sure on this one either.
And we hit a flashback, and I had too much of a headache to put in the work for this one, so I don’t know what it says yet.
That’s as far as I got this time, Any help clarifying any of the panels would be helpful, and any suggestions/things you want me to do, just let me know. I’m excited to get into this, and hopefully I start getting better from it.
