;;[nm t="京介"]“出たよ、うさんくせえ発言が……”[np]
;;A word that's used several times to describe Tsubaki's super honest attitude. It's close to meaning shady or suspicious, as in, it's hard to trust it(meant to indicate that it seems ‘too good to be true') but I could never think of a good word for it. None of those examples really clicked in English for me. I think "obscure" takes the award for most "what?" translation of it so far though. If you do think of a good equivalent though, using it in those past instances couldn't hurt either, keeping the consistency rolling between both versions is a good thing when it's possible.
;;couldn't do it v.v - pondr
;;yeah, probably needs to be changed. It's not that you really think it's an act or anything, or even come close to that, given the delivery. it's just... an adjective to describe it... hard to explain. I mean I know it's phrased here as kind of a joke but... it's not really the direction the joke should go... I mean, er... Anyway, if you can't come up with a good way to put it, it would be better to shift the focus of the line to that of ‘Whelp, Tsubaki's spouting her patented shit again' rather than describing the nature of that patented shit.

The next call came when we'd gone downtown, thinking of eating at a Western restaurant.[np]
;;次の着信は、ようかんでも食おうかと、下町に繰り出していったときだった。[np]
;;original is thinking of eating some youkan but inconsequential, just pointing out. While I'm at it, I noticed Central District is translated as downtown in this project. Which I find kind of weird since the game divides the city into 5 districts and the Central District isn't referred to by its name while all the other districts are. The occurrence of downtown here though is a regular use of downtown(not Central District) which kind of hit me with the fact that calling a proper area simply by the name of "downtown" might have some weird ramifications.
;;Using downtown is because we can't get around "central street/boulevard" because it's in katakana, but saying central street in the central district sounds like shit. And I can't think of another word for central district besides downtown. - pondr

Wandering through the Central District until nightfall, I brought Tsubaki to my apartment.[np]

*page248|
She had originally wanted to go home, but obediently agreed to stay after I asked her.[np]
