Translation[edit]

Shouldn't this be a "Heaven Dragon" type? That's the connotation we normally see, isn't it?KrytenKoro06 17:06, 19 October 2009 (UTC)

Does look like it.--Daisuke Motomiya 22:01, 21 October 2009 (UTC)
True. But since "天" is one of those kanji that has multiple meanings, both "Sky" and "Heavenly" are valid translations. Actually, I believe that the first is a better choice in this case, for the latter might imply a holy connotation that Wingdramon does not have.
Incidentally, there is something that I would like to point out: the last sentences (さらにウイングドラモンは高速移動するだけで速度が音速を超えてしまうため、『ウイングブラスト』と呼ばれる衝撃波が発生してしまう。そのため、ウイングドラモンの必殺技をかわしたとしても無傷ではいられない。) were translated as:

"Furthermore, because Wingdramon only breaks the sound barrier when it moves at high speeds, it generates a shock wave called "Wing Blast". For that reason, you aren't uninjured even if you parry Wingdramon's Special Moves.".

Although it is not wrong per say, they are phrased in a strange way. Also "dodge" is a more accurate reading of "かわした" than "parry". So, I suggest changing these sentences to:

"Furthermore, Wingdramon's velocity breaks the speed of sound and creates a shock wave called "Wing Blast" just by him performing high-speed movement. Thus, you won't be unhurt even if you dodge Wingdramon's Special Moves". --Libra00 11:24, 28 November 2009 (UTC)

"Uninjured" has a more visceral connotation, which I think works better here. "Parry" or "deflect" works better for the context, here, since if you could actually dodge the attacks, you should avoid the shockwave as well. However, if you only parried it, there's still all that force in the air itself to hit you.KrytenKoro06 17:28, 30 November 2009 (UTC)
Not necessarily. I will compromise on the "uninjured" part, but I believe that the message that the text is trying to pass here is that even if you dodge Wingdramon's frontal attack, the shockwave that follows it will still hit you. We see this kind of things a lot in animes and shounen manga: that the hero barely manages to dodge the attack of the enemy but still receives a small cut from the air-pressure created by its passage.--Libra00 05:19, 3 December 2009 (UTC)
