There is a problem with Tokimeki Sugar's translation portion.

http://www.animelyrics.com/anime/kons2/tokimekisugar.htm

Every time the line
"If you want a taste, just say so, okay?
You've got some on your cheek!" Shows up, it should be replaced with

"If you want a taste, just say so, okay?
Your cheeks will fall off!"

Why? Because "Your cheeks will fall off" is a Japanese saying for "It's to die for" when it comes to food.

The lyric is "Hoppe ga ochiru yo". If it WAS "You've got some on your cheek!" it would originally be "Hoppe ni tsuiteru yo!"

...actually, writing the translation of the Japanese saying would make it more confusing, since we don't use that sort of expression in English.

How's about "Once you pop, you can't s- oh wait this isn't about Pringles

True, but if you put it in the notes... I think the saying makes sense, even when I didn't know it was Japanese. And besides, "There's some on your cheek!" is not even close to the meaning. Maybe...
"It tastes so good your cheeks will drop!" or something. I mean, yeah, you don't have to put in the cheeks, but there's an English saying that means the same thing... Grrr, what was it...

The closest English equivalent I can think of is "It'll melt in your mouth."
But I'll leave it to you guys to reach a decision/compromise. =D

XDDD Yeah, I think Melts in your mouth works really well, but that's just my opinion.

Geez, I tried PMing and emailing the original t/ler but she hasn't responded at all. It's only a small line, so I don't think they'll mind one replaced line, anyone can come up with suggestions on this one?

I gave my take already lol ("it'll melt in your mouth").
The consensus will be reached between Azure-san and mewpudding101 =)

I think replacing one line is fine.
