Alien Soldier feature page 3 inside BEEP Megadrive magazine

(Top sentence in purple box)
そしてこれがステージ1のボス・Xiタイガー!
And here we have the stage 1 boss: Xi tiger!

(Green box text top right)
俺は無敵の暗殺拳、焔虎豪裂拳指南(ほむらとらごうれつけんしなん)、
虎殺狂介(??)だが、真の姿は改造生物、Xiタイガーよ!!
イプシロン、死にに来い。
貴様も可愛いペットの元へ行きたかろう?

I am the invincible assassin fist, the flame tiger tearing fist, the slayer tiger but my real shape is the enhanced life form, Xi Tiger!!
Epsilon, come to die.
You also want to go where the cute pet is right?

(Gray box text center)
実際には、他にもいろんなアクションを見せてくれる!
ステージのボス!あきれるぐらいの巨大さと、恐ろしいくらい速いモーションは、
実際に見るまで信じられまい。
In fact there are other moves that (Xi tiger) will show us! The stage boss! Its astounding huge body size and terrifying speed motion are things you won’t believe until you actually see them.

(Gray box text right)
雷鳴の中にたたずむXiタイガー。ここでは掲載していないが、雷が落ちて
一瞬逆光になるシーンは枠の極至ッス!いっそ BEメガをビデオ媒体(ばいたい)にして見せたいほど、フットワークも
軽やかだ。ああ、静止画像じゃもったいない!
Xi tiger is the one that stands still inside a thunder.
The moment when it flashes back (Note: referring to the scene where xi tiger is hit by a thunder and flashes) is the best of all frames. It makes me want to turn BE mega (Beep megadrive magazine) into a video medium and show it to you, that footwork, that lightness of movement. Ahh, it’s such a shame to show it to you only in a still image!

(Green text above seven force design)
カッコ良すぎる登場シーン!そして軽妙なフットワークを見よ!
Let’s look at the super cool scene when it appears into stage! Also take a look at its light footwork!

セブンフォースカエデ
変形パターンコンテスト
君のアイデアがソフト化される!
(赤い丸テキスト) 使用パーツ

唐突だが「エイリアンソルジャー」に、君がデザインした多関節キャラクターを
登場させてみないか?なんとこのゲームにもセブンフォース(その名もカエデ)が
登場する予定があって、そのうち1つの形態を読者から公募しようという
ワケなんだ。右の例のような人型にこだわらなくていいから、独創性のあるものを頼むぞ!

Seven Force Kaede
Transformation pattern contest.
Your idea will become part of the game!
(Red circle text) Usable parts/pieces
Would you like to have your designed multi-junction character appear in Alien Soldier? It’s planned to have Seven Force (the name is also Kaede) appearance in this game as well, and we will select one of the transformations to be one that comes out of a public contest among our readers. There is no need to design the transformation to be human shaped like in the example shown to the right, I only ask you for something with a lot of personality!

パターン作成時の注意事項
開発者からのお願いかも。
掟(おきて)其の一、パーツは合計25個まで(25個以下でも可)。
掟其の二、本体(D)は核となるパーツなので必ず1個使用する。
1個以上は使用不可。それ以外のパーツには使用回数の制限なし
(ただし掟其の一に準ずる)。
Items to pay attention while crafting the design pattern.
It’s more like a favor asked from the developer.
Rule #1, use no more than 25 pieces (less than 25 pieces is fine as well).
Rule #2, the main body (D) is the core part so make sure to use 1 of it. It’s not possible to use more than 1 piece of it. Besides that piece, for the rest of them there is no limit on the number of times they can be used (just make sure to follow along rule #1).

つまり頭が7個あったり、球のパーツだけで構成されていてもよい。逆に
使わないパーツがあってもOK。また、矢印が記入してあるパーツは
回転可能だ。左右逆向きにしても構わない。
構成図を参考にされたし。
掟其の三、パーツサイズの比率に図に準ずる。要は1つのパーツだけ
巨大化させたり縮小させてはイカンということ。ただ、極端に違わなければ、
厳密に合わせる必要はない。
それから、余裕があったら変形の名称と特徴、攻撃方法も添えてもらえれば
うれしい。
In short, the design can be composed by having only 7 head parts of only ball-shaped pieces. In other sense, it’s also ok to have pieces shown above not used. Also, the pieces that have an arrow can be rotated.
It’s fine to have them facing left/right up or down.
You can look as a reference the completed design above.
Rule #3, follow the size ration given by the image above. The point is not to have a piece being over sized or shrinked when compared to the others. If the pieces are not that far away from each other, there is no need to have them extremely coupled to each other.
If you have some extra time, i’d be happy if you add the name of the transformation, its characteristics and attack patterns.

答え(Konig石田):これを読んでいたら、斬新な次世代ゲーム機の
仕様を思い付いたぞ。さっそく企画書を書こうっと!あっ社長!これ読んで。
「なになに、「最新テクノロジーを利用した携帯ゲーム機!?電話回線で
最大256人まで対戦可能。。。。」だ~~~~没だボツ!こんなもん書いているヒマあったら仕事しろ!」。斬新で面白いのになぁ、この「ポケベルバトラー」。。。。。

Answer (konig ishida): after reading this I came up with an idea about specifications for the innovative next generation game console. I’ll write a project proposal for it!
Ah boss! (company boss), read this.
[What’s this…[a game console that uses the latest technology!? Using the telephone line, it will be possible to have competitions with 256 participants…] this is nonsense, nonsense! If you have the spare time to write this kind of thing do more work!]. But it’s so innovative and interesting this [Pokebell battler]…
