    Zetman 112,113 and Popcorn Avatar 2

    I'm having trouble with a few lines in these 3 chapters, and I'm hoping someone can help me with these.

    Zetman 112

    p03
    今まで正義へ向かう気持ちが死なずにすんだのは
    キミと言う目標ができたからだ
    Today, my undying journey towards justice ends,
    having reached my goal of becoming like you.

    The above seems contradictory and out of character for the one speaking the dialogue. It seems strange to me that the character would say that his "undying" feelings for justice has ended. The second line also seems odd, because a few pages later, he tells the character he's speaking to that he "wants to catch up to him", which sort of implies that he hasn't reached his goal yet.

    p04
    何も出来ずに混乱するだけの僕を余所に
    I was paralyzed in confusion, trapped in another place.

    The only part I'm having trouble with here is 「余所に」. It sticks out like a sore thumb, and I'm not sure I got this right.

    p09
    フツーオレみてェなバケモノ見たら引くだろ
    Psht- all you get with a monster like me is what you see.

    I don't understand the usage of 「引く」 here.

    Zetman 113

    p08
    そちらも呼びかけが無かったし…
    高雅くんが遮断していたんだよ

    無意識のうちに我々とのコンタクトを拒否してたんだろう
    言っただろそのスーツ君の意識に直結してるんだ

    And I wasn't getting calls from you either so...
    Kouga-kun, you cut us off.
    Eh?
    You rejected contact with us to keep us blind.
    We told you right? That suit is bound to your consciousness.

    Are lines #1, #2 and #3 right? They sound awkward to me.

    p09
    イ〇ポヤロ

    Yes, that's a 丸 between 「イ」 and 「ポ」. It looks like on of those cases where a character makes reference to something in another copyrighted work.... My guess is Ippo, but since the scene had nothing to do with boxing, I'm not sure I'm on the right track.

    p15

    フツーに、暮らすのに、もうなんの支障ないもの。

    Couldn't understand this line at all.

    p22

    たまんねーぜ、アレが!!この内から込み上げるなんつーの?

    Too much slurring, so again, couldn't make heads or tails of the line.

    p28

    ひゅろ!

    No idea what this is supposed to be. Is this some really obscure slang? I'm not finding it in any dictionary.

    p29
    イジめがいのある女だなー!!

    「めがい」 - can't find this in any dictionary.

    here is some break down. ^_^

    「死なずにすんだのは」 the reason why it didnt die
    「キミと言う目標ができたからだ」 because i've found my goal that to become like you.
    「余所に」、よそに= putting aside, leaving behind.
    「フツー」、普通(ふつう)。
    「引く」 is a kind of feeling. when you see something that you think disgusting or gross, you go geez and try to keep yourself away from it. this feeling is 引く.
    「無意識のうちに」= without knowing, unconsciously.
    「イ〇ポヤロ」 インポヤロウ= impotent man.
    「フツーに、暮らすのに、もうなんの支障ないもの。」
    普通に暮らす=Lit, live ordinary life.
    there's already no obstacle of doing daily routine. (may flows better here?)
    「たまんねーぜ、アレが!!」 i can't resist with that!!
    「この内から込み上げる」= Lit, feeling that welling up from inside of this.
    「なんつーの?」=what can i say it?
    「ひゅろ!」 is it a sfx?
    「イジめがい」 いじめる + 甲斐(かい)。 worthwhile bullying.
    hope it helped.
