    I think the poems that come with each mem cake are super interesting and I wanted to know if they said similar things in the Japanese version. I had a heck of a time trying to find translations for them or even finding them at all. I did eventually find a site with all of the Japanese poems listed and I put them through google translate. A lot of them make little, if any, sense (which I expected from google translate). But some of them are pretty interesting! If anyone is interested I put all of it in a google doc here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1jOR9OlrmvQcaAifDjyHi1hPKPEJrfjh_jNIK4HVXeqQ/edit?usp=sharing

    You can comment if you'd like on the document. I hope you think the poems are interesting too!
    (Also here is where I got the Japanese poems from: https://game8.jp/splatoon-2/216611#hm_1)

    That was really interesting to look through. I thought it was funny how the Japanese poem describes tentakooks as “tsundere”

    Yeah I thought that was funny too! I wish I could put better translations but I've only taken a semester of Japanese T-T. I just knew enough to search "octo expansion poems" in Japanese and get Japanese results. Maybe I could actually translate them in a year or two
