Do any of you guys have or know where I can find a list of the names of all the monsters in Trade & Battle: Card Hero? I know they're all listed on the official site, but I can't read Japanese, so that's pretty useless to me. I've searched all over for an English fansite or something, but so far I've found nothing.
I see the monster names are almost entirely written in katakana, so it's actually not that hard to "read" them. First, you can simply let the list translate by Google or Excite, such as this one. The translations might not reflect the actual names, though, but it's at least a start. The safest way is to analyse the name vowel by vowel. I use Wikipedia's table of katakana in such cases.
I spelled them this way since I don't know any official romanisations. I looked up some of the names at Google, but there were no useful results, so there is apparently no English fansite that would list them, sadly. Anyway, there are some names that are likely to be spelled this way in English, also judging by the monsters' appearance: Uōta --> Wata | Wairudā --> Wilder | Rūju --> Rouge | Gantā --> Gunter | Dogantā --> Dogunter | Surai --> Sly (maybe)
EDIT: There is an image of the first monster at Nintendo.co.jp that has the file name "manatot.jpg", so this could be the official spelling.
Now, for High-Speed Card Battle: Card hero, the website has been done in Flash. Short of screenprinting every card and saving them to NinDB (which I'm not going to do until the pages get encyclopadia'd), I'm just going to list them.
High-Speed Card Battle: Card Hero (Set 1) - World of Quest
The DS game has a much more serious style... with Yu-Gi-Oh like designs. Even the ones that made it into both games have largely been redesigned into generic anime card monsters. "Beyond", for example, went from being a weird springy clown to a cat with rings on its tail.
Nester the Lark: Also, I know YL isn't into speedruns, but he might be interested to know that RPG Limit Break is having a Gust marathon all weekend, including several Atelier games.

nocturnal YL: Ah… Bad timing. I didn't read this until now, when it's almost over.

Nester the Lark: Well, if you're still interested, they'll be uploading the replays to their YouTube channel later this week.

Shrikeswind: I like that Mayles put her back in her kneepads. What's the last game they were in? One of the Kongas? It was a good look for her, albeit very 90's.

Shrikeswind: The jokes call to me, their siren song a temptation I can hardly bear, yet I must stay my tongue. Confound my dirty sense of humor.

Nester the Lark: The replies I see to anything Nintendo posts on Twitter are probably an indication as to why they abandoned Miiverse and decided that social media should be someone else's responsibility.

nocturnal YL: As mentioned in Twitter, I'm currently playing Atelier Meruru DX. I'm thinking about writing reviews for the Arland series afterwards, as well as making a second Nintendo Switch review video after I finish either this or my next game.

Nester the Lark: ^ I would be interested in seeing your reviews of the Arland games.

Nester the Lark: So, there's been Hyrule Warriors and Fire Emblem Warriors. But guys, how about this: Punch-out Warriors! It's like Punch-out, but you fight all of your opponents at once!

Shrikeswind: Sounds punchy, but unless it's a real knock-out I don't think it'd be a hit.
