So, I'm translating just the opening sequence to the Game Boy game 'Seikuushi Dainamaittu Arawaru!!' aka the 'Sexy Dynamites' game as I always think of it.
I haven't seen this translated anywhere so I'm assuming it hasn't been done yet- and if it has been translated before, I guess I'll have something to compare it with at least, because I'm having too much fun with it to quit now...! But please let me know if you've seen this translated.
I've never played this game and don't know if it's any good. Ebi-_-

Also... Here is an awesome website, which includes the japanese text of the openings and endings to quite a few Goemon games!!!

http://www.h2.dion.ne.jp/~koga_tj/index.htm

Check for errors, but there has only been one that I have encountered so far in using the opening to 'GGSDA' that I found here. Also, quite a few of the hiragana used in the game were typed up as kanji on the website- making translation quite a bit easier!!! It takes a lot of the guessing out of the equation!

Interesting find. I thought Diehard_Fan said he would try to tackle Seikushi Dynamites next, but there hasn't been any progress.
If you'd like to speak to me over a messenger service, please let me know so I can accept you~

I would like to translate this game, I just haven't had the time to do so. This would be a HUGE help, and I wish you the best. If I do decide to translate the whole game when I have a bit more free time, would you be interested in helping out with that?

It'd be incredible to keep seeing Goemon games translated like GG2, 3 and 4 were. ^_^

Okay, here is my translation of the first half of the intro cutscene.

The format: each image is followed by all the text that scrolls by while that image is on the screen. Later, I'll put it in a nicer format.
Any suggestions or corrections would be greatly appreciated, since my Japanese is light-years away from being perfect. Enjoy!

The Japanese text transcription of this is from: http://www.h2.dion.ne.jp/~koga_tj/gameop/kagyou/goestar.htm
It is still in its original form here, except where I corrected it for accuracy to the game text (very rarely). Also, much of the original hiragana from the game was transcripted by them as kanji, which I didnft change here.
My romanization is not always consistent, for example I will sometimes take the same sound and write it out different each time (for example, tu could also be written tsu, or cho could also be written cyo), usually changing unconsciously to reflect what looks best to me for a particular word. This is because I learned to romanize from several different sources which did not all follow the same standard. My apologies if this is annoying if you are trying to check my work, but it should not affect the meaning or the basic pronunciation of the text.

I DEFINITELY know that all of you regulars know better, but in case some random person drops by here and is feeling greedy, DON'T STEAL. This was a lot of work...
If you want to post this elsewhere, give me credit- but please don't modify it, and at least wait until this translation is pretty much finalized before you post it.

Intro Version 2:

Here we are in Edo [Hagure town]... it's usually a busy town, but today, for a short time, it's quite peaceful.

All things considered, this is how it should be...because the busy presence of the Goemon and Ebisumaru combo is no where to be found...

At this time, Goemon is on a journey through the [southern countries], which ends with him as the champion at koban-throwing.

And Ebisumaru is travelling through the [snow country]. After performing at the {countrywide expert-level speed-eating contest}, his journey also comes to an end.

And Dynamite, sending one messenger after another from his mechanical cat army, begins to conquer every area of Japan!

And in the [southern countries], the [snow country], and such places, this new threat has resulted in the cancellation of their respective tournaments...Causing the anger of Goemon and Ebisumaru to reach its peak...

Goemon {n naro! Ano neko yarou, yurusaneeze!!}

Ebisumaru: {I do NOT want to deal with this, its scary~}

[End of Intro]

FIRST SET OF NOTES:
The name Seikuushi means starry sky samurai, or starry sky gentleman.
I translate Nihon koban coins as being ryo, because it is what I automatically think of Goemon throwing (thanks to the N64 games).
A couple times when Seikuushi speaks, he uses katakana where the usual thing is to use kanji or hiragana, I think this is to emphasize the foreign-ness of his speech. And yes, he does just randomly end a sentence with dynamiiiiiiiiiiite!! Not weird for this series, but I had to point it out because it just looks weird there. And yes, when he laughs, it does draw out for that long. You would probably want to AVOID saying funny things to this guy!
(I am a person of the entire universe, who once again splinters the universe!) In this line, I think the basic meaning is that he is a citizen of the universe, someone who is quite familiar with a great deal of it. And by splinter, I think he means that he is yet again causing a big disturbance in the universe.

NEW NOTES:
Why Goemon and Ebisumaru are out competing in tournaments, I am not sure. Maybe they needed some money, and neither wants to hold down a regular job?
What confuses me here is that it seems to be implied early on that their journeys have ended, and then it is implied later that they are upset that their journeys have been interrupted. Either I am having a fundamental misunderstanding, or they are simply moving from one tournament to another. Maybe I will clear this up later.
When Yae says *so we need all the help we can get*, she does not actually say those words, but I felt it was necessary to make the rest of what she was saying make more sense.
Poor Ebisumaru, getting dragged along on Goemons adventures, even when he would rather not! Ebi:sit

Awesome, I'm glad to see this is coming along nicely! One thing I want to point out, though, Goemon does throw koban, not ryo (I'm pretty sure this is true in all of the games). They're two different things (koban are quite a bit bigger). Fun fact, Impact also shoots koban out of his nose, not ryo.

Oh? I never knew about the Ryo/Koban stuff. That's pretty interesting.

You're doing a great job, Seppukumaru! Can't wait to see the rest. This has always been one of the game intros I've wanted to know, as the game is very similar to it's Snes counterparts.

Keep it up! goe:vict

Ooh, very nice! :D

Just a note, "concluded" would sound better than "terminated" in the sentence about Goemon.
