Guidelines For Using My Translations
[Insert text: I am the star of my own life!! // My future is rosy!! / And my partner... Leon-sama!♡]
[Insert text: Erza, utterly outmatched!! Does her unwavering heart hold a chance of victory?!]
Midnight: Come, Erza. // Show me the best that you can do. // ...Although of course... // ...your attacks will never reach me.
Gérard: (It's true... his Reflector magic will deflect any and all attacks...)
[Chapter 155: Last Man]
Gérard: (She's fast!!!)
Midnight: It matters not how quick your movements are... you cannot penetrate my Reflector.
Midnight: You see?
[Side text: Mashima's Ramblings: Since I was making a TV appearance, I had to get made up. Man, that was embarrassing.]
Erza: Your magic possesses two great weaknesses.
Gérard: (Two weaknesses...? // In this short space of time, she...!)
Erza: The first is that although it can distort all manner of magic and weapons... // ...it is unable to do the same to an actual human body.
Erza: If it could, then you would have targeted my body rather than my armour back then.
Midnight: Hah. // That may be so... but it does not prevent me from strangling you with your own clothing if I so choose.
Erza: And this is the second.
Midnight: Wha - ?! // Guahhh!!!!
Erza: Whilst you were distorting my armour, you avoided
the swords that I sent to attack you.
Erza: Why did you not simply alter their paths?
Erza: Your power can only be focused in a single area at any one time. // Around yourself, or around your enemy, but never both at once. / Whilst you are using your magic upon me, you are unable to use your Reflector to defend yourself.
Gérard: (Her insight... // ...is incredible...)
Erza: Furthermore, this Distant Garment I wear is a hugely flexible form of armour. Your magic is useless against it. // Hm? / I suppose including this armour... // ...that makes a total of three weaknesses.
Midnight: Ugh... // If only I had been quicker...
Erza: This is over.
Midnight: If only I had been a little quicker to kill you... // ...you would not have been subjected to this terror...
Midnight: When midnight comes, my power of distortion reaches its ultimate level!
Gérard: Wha - ?!
Midnight: Don't blame me for anything that happens now! // Haaahhh!!!!!
Erza: Gérard!!!! // Guahh!
Midnight: Dear, dear... don't be so quick to die, now! // The fun is just beginning!
Erza: Aaaahhhhh! // Nghahh!
[no text just owned]
Midnight: Wha - ?
Gérard: ?!! // (Wh... What just happened?! // I was sure my body was penetrated... and Erza...)
Midnight: M... My illusions do not... affect you...?
Gérard: (Illusions?!! // That was...?!!)
Erza: I'm afraid magic that acts upon the eyes will not affect me.
Midnight: Im... Impossible... // I am... the greatest... Greater even than my father... the greatest... of the Six... // The undefeatable... ultimate... mage...!
Erza: One who is able to laugh at the suffering of others... // ...could never hope to achieve such heights.
Midnight: (Unghh... // My prayer... // All I wanted was to sleep... // ...in a quiet place...)
Gérard: (This is... // ...Erza...)
Erza: If you do not wish to be defeated... // ...you should always be aware of your own weaknesses. // And always... // ...be kind.
