Okay I’m going to… try my hand at translating Lambda’s Ougon Cross dialogue! LET’S SEE HOW FAR I GET. I’m doing this in the same style that akatokuro did for Will’s dialogue (and if you haven’t seen her fabulous translations yet, you should definitely check them out over here!). I’ve been going through these fairly swiftly and done minimal proofreading, so if you notice any glaring errors, just let me know. Special thanks goes to akatokuro for going through the game and sending me the caps for the scenes I was having trouble getting—she’s a real sweetheart and it’s thanks to her I was able to finish this tonight!
Lambda to Will
"That forelock! I’ll dye it pink for you! It’ll be real popular with the ladies, I bet!"
"Wizard hunter, huh…? Seems like this will be a little fun! Don’t break right away!"
"Do you really think you can push back Lambdadelta-sama with something as trifling as the Van Dine?"
Will to Lambda
"Make it clear whether you’re an enemy or an ally. …Or is it that anything’s fine as long as it’s fun, huh."
"A real lively person… Are all witches like this…?"
"No way around it. It’ll be just this once. I’ll play along with a witch’s game."
Will: “Impressive. Looks like the title of Witch of Certainty isn’t just for show.”
Lambda: “Certain willpower weaves a certain fate. It’s a position only I who understand that can reach!”
Will: “I haven’t got the slightest clue as to what goes on in your head.”
Lambda: “I’m worrying every day, you know? About what sort of snack I should have with my afternoon tea, stuff like that!”
Lambda: “What do you think? Aren’t I lovely? Are you rendered totally giddy by the magnificent Lambda-sama’s abundant charm?!”
Will: “Give me a break. My strike zone isn’t so low that I’d fall for a kid.”
Lambda: “Wow, wow! Clap clap clap! You’re really strong!”
Will: “Don’t just sit in the grandstands. You are technically partnering up with me, you know…”
Lambda: “H~mm, you’re not bad! I’ll acknowledge your strength, just a bit!”
Will: “Gee, thanks. And when you’re tired of popcorn, maybe you can back me up a little bit, too.”
Will: “What are you glaring for? …We won, look a little happier.”
Lambda: “Grrr! And here Lambda-chan-sama was aiming for a magnificent finish!”
Will loses to Lambda
Lambda: “And to think I went out of my way to save you from that Fragment… Have you already forgotten your debt?”
Will: “…Tch! You can make me into your plaything if you want… But in exchange, don’t lay a finger on him!”
Will: “So this is the true strength of the great witch, Lambdadelta… …Practically a monster…”
Lambda: “Say that and you’ll hurt Auau’s feelings. And hey, you shouldn’t call a girl a monster anyway!”
Lambda: “When a hunk loses, what kind of line does he throw at you? Let me hear, let me hear!”
Will: “…Isn’t that obvious? …He’s got nothing to say.”
Lambda loses to Will
Lambda: “Not bad! Impressive that you could win against Lady Lambdadelta, even if it was a fluke!”
Will: “It might not go that way next time, right? I’ve got to win while I can.”
Will: “Are you sure it’s alright if I win? Well, if that’s what you want, I don’t mind…”
Lambda: “Take your victory. It’s my reward to you for putting up a splendid fight.”
Lambda: “Hmph, I’ll let you win for today! But it’s just for today, okay?! Just for today!”
Will: “I’ll take those words at face value. …I’m not confident I could beat you a second time.”
