YoRHa – CD Booklet Translations

YoRHa-CD-0_0005-small

I’ve been meaning to translate the extra pages in the CD booklet about the YoRHa back story… but haven’t had much time to do it yet.  This is only going to be a partial blog entry for right now until I’m able to translate the other bits.  In the meantime, though, here’s the excerpt that I translated from the main Web site and a couple other extra goodies from the booklet:

SToRY
======================================
11,939AD* Outbreak of the 14th Machine Armament War

In the distant future when the world is conquered by Living Machines.

As the remaining humans fled to the Moon (or artificial satellite), they were unable to deal the decisive blow to the Living Machines which found a way to fortify their propagation.

The humans descended from orbit with a fleet of ships, firing all of their torpedos and bombs, but all attempts to destroy the machines were ineffective.

Although a few friendly forces arrived on the surface of the Earth, they were completely annihilated before the overwhelming enemy forces.

As their ice-cold enemies approached, the entire human race was forced to stand on the precipice of extinction.

【ヨルハ】YoRHa
Automatic humanoid soldier androids developed to combat the Living Machines.

  • The date 11939 is an allusion to 1939 and the beginning of WWII when Germany invades Poland.

    ugh i’m so confused now whether Accord is from Nier universe or not…

    • Yeah, I’m pretty skeptical that there’s an intended connection to the character Accord through this. But Yoko Taro *did* work on the story for YoHRa, so who knows! The timeline of DOD is pretty full of infinite possibilities, so I could see is one timeline, it could be a possibility!

        Hi,
        I asked for this time ago, if Accord have some kind of connection with NieR (if she’s a replicant) but he said NO, it’s all original. All It’s a bit more confusing each day passing xD

        • Nice. He’s awesome. <3

          I also don’t think they’re related to Nier but based on something else we may not have been introduced to yet, hence the secrecy. xD I’m still a bit behind with my translations but I’ll try to get more info from the CD and the booklet up soon.
