@broccoliforest awesome sites, thanks. I just went with what Google gave me, but these seem good.

I don't know if they're filtering traffic or what, but the cached version seems to work. Try that.

comment What does (ry mean?
@Ringil blocked? Are you in China or something? You should be able to glean the meaning from my post alone, but I'll try beefing up any parts that might be weak.

comment Could someone please check my translation of these lyrics?
Proofreading questions are off-topic unless a specific source of concern in the text is clearly identified. See this meta post. (this was never truly finalized, but hey, if you agree..)

I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it's basically proofreading which to me is a glorified translation request

comment Is でござる used in Modern Society?
@regularslasher I'm not a native speaker so I can't speak for the precise level of unusualness it would evoke, but my presumption would be that if でござる were used on its own, in plain form, without any sort of humorous intention it would sound strange, and I think strangeness is sort of inherently off putting, but I guess that's up to your own interpretation. Ultimately it depends on the context in which it's used.

I had a class with twins in it, and when they weren't addressed by first name they were addressed by full name.

comment ~くする or ~にする versus ~くなる or ~になる
I'm not quite sure why the motor is important. In either situation the machine is still operated by a person and I'd say the same rules apply to each situation.

That rule doesn't necessarily apply in this situation. You can use 帰ってくる in situations where you have merely returned home.
