Welcome back to Translation Time! Today, we'll be looking at Vanguard Bandits, or Epica Stella as it's known in Japan. This is a Working Designs translation, so you can be that there'll be a lot of changes here. However, unlike Plus Alpha's mutilation of the Dragon Quest games they localized, a lot of these were for the better, IMHO. First, we'll be looking at the characters.

Pharastia Kingdom:
Bastion - ランディ - RANDI - Randy
Milea - マイル - MAIRU - Mairu
Puck - ルータ - RU-TA - Ruta
Kamorge - カモーシュ - KAMO-SHU - Kamoush

Junaris Empire:
Faulkner - フォークナー - FO-KUNA- - Faulkner
Duyere - デュウル - DYUURU - Duerre

Shares the somewhat uncommon デュ combo with his father and his country.

Sadira - シャロン - SHARON - Sharon
Most likely changed because "Sharon" isn't a very princess-y name.

Cecilia - マスカット - MASUKATTO - Muscat
Franco - フランコ - FURANKO - Franco
Halak - ハルカ - HARUKA - Haruka
Zakov - ザコフ - ZAKOFU - Zakov

Emperor Degalle - デュレイオル皇帝 - DYUREIORU koutei - Emperor Dureyol

Shares the somewhat uncommon デュ combo with his son and his country.

The Japanese name is pronounced with a silent T.

Reyna - レジーナ - REJI-NA - Regina
Kaidul - リシャール - RISHA-RU - Rishal


Nordilain Forest:
Logan - バルゼ - BARUZE - Barzé
Claire - エリファス - ERIFASU - Eliphas

It could be Shion, but that's usually a girl's name.
