Since the release of the stage play YoRHa Ver.1.0 on DVD this past February, I had worked on translating the insert booklet that came with it shortly after it was released… but apparently forgot all about it. ^^; So, let this post rectify that oversight.
The inside of the two-page booklet covers information on all 16 of the YoRHa androids, including rank, position, individual specs, and their unique “false memories”. Enjoy!
14th Machine War
“Anti-Living Machine Android Soldiers: YoRHa” Mission Report
Planned Date for the Mission: December 8, 11941
126th Descent Mission – [YR-0] Overview of the Mission Units
Sword Soldier: Great Sword
Through extensive examinations, she was the only model to remain in the top grade. With superior output and mobility, she is the only Attacker that can be equipped with a Great Sword. Her designation for this mission is Commander.
False Memory: Experienced politician of great success
Although she is rather unstable with strategy and emotion, her survival rate during mock battle experiments was above 80%. It is assumed that she can adapt to plan B should No1 be destroyed.
False Memory: Girl who lived happily with her grandmother
Spear Soldier: Double-handed Spear
She achieved the greatest number of kills in the mock battle experiments. At the same time, she has the highest rate of destruction to her own frame. Because she lacks the sense of cooperation, until deployment into battle it is necessary to maintain her through simple hypnosis.
False Memory: Bloodthirsty serial killer
Android with average individual performance. In mock battles, it is thought that because of her ability to work well with other androids, whichever group she belongs to seems to have a high probability of success.
False Memory: Typical high school girl
Sword Soldier: Dual Blades
She has increased speed and mobility due to reducing the quantity of body armor as much as possible. Since her defence is her greatest weakness, she is often paired with a Gunner. She achieved the best results in combination with No.16.
False Memory: Ancient-style Kenpo martial artist
Spear Soldier: Double-handed Spear
Model android equipped with a special suspended animation function. She has a special covering around her Brain Unit that will protect it against extreme temperature and pressure. Since she appears to lack adequate communication skills, it is preferable to pair her with a Recon model.
False Memory: Firefighter who died on the job
Sword Soldier: Single-handed Sword
Model with heightened knowledge of operating vehicles. She managed to commandeer a single Living Machine. Since her contamination control affects an extensive area, limiting her strategy data, she is unsuitable for the front ranks.
False memory: Chef
Sword Soldier: Short Sword
E-Model experimental type. Detailed functions of this unit is top secret. Authorization higher than General required to unlock this information.
False Memory: Access denied.
Short-range soldier with an assault rifle. Equipped with a large, removable bayonet, she is able to use it to attack as both a sword and gun at the same time. This model is also equipped with more armor, trading speed for superior defence and attack power.
False Memory: Typical 21st century housewife
Sniper specializing in long-distance attacks. She has the highest hit-rate accuracy among the other gunners. Equipped with specalized firearms, including a contaminated warhead, her mobility speed is considerably slow.
False Memory: Dentist
No13 is a model capable of two types of short-range attacks, both in marksmanship and the use of a bayonet sword-gun. She was selected as a “normal model” with average abilities. Sparing some additional memory storage space, updates can be installed on site.
False Memory: Hunter
Assault Soldier: Handgun
Her style of combat involves switching between multiple handguns. She is also capable of other types of attacks besides shooting, including copying the special attacks of another.
False Memory: Cheerleader
An all-purpose model equipped with an assault rifle. More importance was given to her firing accuracy over mobility. She’s slightly introverted and has difficulty communicating.
False Memory: Flower arrangement teacher
An all-purpose model equipped with an assault rifle. More importance was given to her mobility over firing accuracy. Due to her hot-headed speech, she has difficulty communicating.
False Memory: Steelmaking Engineer
Radar analysis, treatment of contaminants; a supporting soldier in charge of war-time, situational analysis. She has an extremely high score in analysis. It’s quite rare for an android as calm and collected as she is to also be extremely emotional.
False Memory: Weaver
A supporting soldier in charge of counter-hacking measures against the Living Machines. Her processing speed is very fast. She also has high defence against environmental contaminants. Unfortunately, she is a pathological liar, which causes the reliability of her recognisance information to plummet remarkably.
False Memory: Con Artist
Note: There are multiple allusions to various battles during the WWII. Here’s just a quick look at a few of them.
