quote:

Princess Syalis is the beloved Princess of the human world's kingdom of Goodereste. Kidnapped by a demon lord, she spends her time in relative comfort in her holding cell awaiting rescue by the kingdom's Hero Akatsuki. With nothing else to do, she decides to while away her time sleeping, but her bedding is found wanting. So, she decides to take matters into her own hands to find the most restful sleep possible.

Goodnight at Demon Castle (魔王城でおやすみ) a.k.a. Sleepy Princess in the Demon Castle is a comedy written by Kagiji Kumanomata and originally appearing in Weekly Shounen Sunday. While the manga is still ongoing (currently up to 16 volumes), a 12-episode anime adaptation by studio Doga Kobo (Himouto! Umaru-chan, YuruYuri, How Heavy Are the Dumbells You Lift?) is currently underway, and it kicks all kinds of rear end.

I love a story that can take an absurdly mundane premise and keep it entertaining. After five episodes about a low-key psychopathic princess cannibalizing her captors for bedding material, I'm still giggling like an idiot pretty much every scene. My vote for anime-of-the-season.

Suyaaaaa~~

this is also my favorite show this season. it's pretty much a pure gag comedy though so i don't really have any grand insight on it. it's funny. also the ED owns.

If she's going on an adventure elsewhere, she's not brutally murdering them for bedding material. Let her go on her way, and stay well clear .

So, thread, do you guys think that funimation is gonna go with bussy (what viz did) or uh...succyan? whatever someone in the autumn thread told me the fanscan's went with.

I think they mean the thing she says when she falls asleep at the end of each of her... adventures.

Personally I'd say it'd be better to just not fall in the trap of blind translation and go with something like a serenely-spoken "Good-niiight". Same general intent and syllable count, and actually parses with english-speaking audiences.

I don't know anything about the manga but they should definitely have the character say bussy

The sub I'm watching just uses "Zzzzz..." which I think is a perfectly good translation.

For the dub, I think it would be more natural to just go with a long sigh/exhale.

Lol, sorry, should have been clearer....

In the op during the group dance scene just behind syalis there's the tire demon (whom we just met) and 3 demons we havent met yet.

In the autumn thread I'd commented that the second one is a succubus that viz called "bussy" but the fan scans went with "sakkyun", so they must be going like at least 6 volumes into the currently released manga.

And yeah like...the funimation sub just goes with ZZZ when she, and others, have done the sya~ noise.

I come to bury the vuvuzela, not praise it. The trumpet of South African cultural exceptionalism has died a plaintive death in the decade since it irritated billions of Fifa World Cup viewers. And now, in the age of Covid-19-infused fomites, the vuvuzela’s only legally and morally defensible purpose is to measure out a 2m gap.

The vuvuzela was billed as a celebration of South African attitude and spirit, providing the jubilant soundtrack of “Philip is here”. But in reality it was what is known in Yiddish as a meshuga – a weird, stubborn madness. Because let’s be honest here, nobody in their right minds actually likes the din of a vuvuzela in one’s ear – except the vuvuzealot who happens to be blowing one.

just because vuvuzelas make a horrible noise while spreading death and disease is no reason to stop using them.

A quick google says the manga started in 2016, so it's just an outdated gag I think.

That's the point, though. The South Africa Wolrd Cup was in 2010. Six years is forever for topical humor like that.

That entire time with Harpy in the Princess' cell was just harrowing. You know it's gonna be bad for the poor girl once Sya realizes she can make a feather comforter, it was just a matter of seeing how how she'd get them .

I do love that the demons have gotten to the point of traumatized indifference to Sya's escapades though.

Imma be mad if Demon Scissor Princess Machine doesn't make a comeback. Also, apparently, the ice golem captain was revived, but she still had access to the tire golem suit. >_>

Also, powerful life lesson this episode.

Presumably Great Red found out about the igloo and made her return the body of ice golem, but didnt find the...pile of tires. I wonder if like...they showed the rubber demon being the...gas demon? if he just needs to re-inhabit a new pile of tires.

Oh, there's a thread for this series! I caught up last week and it's pretty good. Definitely a sleeper (har har) hit of the season.

I wish they translated the opening because it seems to be very in character. There's probably a fan translation somewhere around the internet though

They generally do eventually for most shows. From what I understand/half-remember it's a licensing snafu of some kind that can delay OP/ED lyrics getting subtitles.

I was fully expecting the most recent episode to end with Hades emotionally broken from the Princess' antics and getting to a point of "Look; just loving take her back already .
