Title translation

Narasu (鳴らす) means "ring." Gjallarhorn means "Yelling Horn" in Old Norse.

"Sounding" does not seem to be the best translation. — Canary

'Ringing' and 'sounding' are synonyms (see Japanese and English). Since in English one rarely uses 'ring' in the context of horns, i chose the other one.
OK, well, i won't say you'd never use it. But it's not something i hear often, and personally when given the phrase '_____ a horn', 'sound' would be in my top three options ('ring' would not).
