Original Translation Notes
.SHIKO SHIKO PYU PYU Masturbation noises. (FAP FAP SPRAY SPRAY)
.ANMAR TAMUNOE KIBUTONDO KIBUSHINUKIBUSANU NADASOSO Lyrics from an Okinawan folk song called Chinnuku Juushii - Taro With Rice.

Translation: Mother, the firewood is smoking. The smoke is smokey and my eyes are watering.

.KUFUCHI UMUNU NITONDO Lyrics from the same song as the above, but from the second verse.

Translation: Boiling the floured taro. (Explanation: 芋("nmu") normally means potato, but the characters
that make up the word taro (里芋, "chin'nuku") literally mean village potato.)

.UMI NU CHINBORRAE GWA Lyrics from another Okinawan folk song called Umi no Chinbōraa - The Sea Shell.

Translation: The sea shell...

.GOHARA NANNAN DAYO TEMEE WA YO! Translation: Who the hell do you think you are, Gohara?!
.ANNA NANGI SHITE TSUKKUTTA NONI Translation: That's what I was thinking when I made it.
.YAA YA GUNDA BIKU SHICHI DUNATE SHIKUTINME YO~~ HYA
.WATTA NINTORAN BADOYA!
.DUNER TAR BIKE MOKIRA SHICHI - BONUS KIRE HYA~
Translation:

You've only given yourself a break for about 50 hours ... Agh!
We haven't slept at all!
But, I've been arranged for only 2 hours - Give me a bonus! Agh!
