Mahou Sensei Negima!
Period 232: Episode 1: "Rakan Sets Out~!♡ III"
[insert text: Nagi is here to save the princess! ...And thus the legend of Ala Rubra begins!!]
[Text: Twenty years ago, "Noctis Labyrinthus"]
Nagi: Hey - I'm here for you! // Princess.
Arika: You're late, Sir Knight.

[Text: The western coast of Tharsis; Ala Rubra hideout on Olympus Mons]
[Map:]
Top-right: Phoenicis
[TN: Okay, I'm trying to match up the place names to the names of actual nearby Martian areas where I can, since that seems to be where they're almost all coming from. Katakana for this particular one are "foenikusu", suggesting "Phoenicus", but there's a lake nearby called "Phoenicis", so I'll go with that :p]
Top-middle: Noctis Labyrinthus
Middle-right: Olympus Mons
Continent: Tharsis conti.
Bottom left: Tempe
Above that: Tempe Terra
Bottom-right: Tantalus
[/Map]
HellasPrincess: Oh, so this is the secret base of the rumoured "Ala Rubra", is it?! // I was wondering what it might be like... / ...but it's just a battered old shack!
Rakan: We're on the run, you know. What exactly were you expecting, brat?
HellasPrincess: What was that?! You filthy-mouthed cur!
Rakan: Oh, I'm so~~ sorry. I'm afraid I don't like dealing with the Hellas royalty any more than I have to.
HellasPrincess: What?! Who exactly are you, swine?!
Eishun: And that worryingly-energetic girl is...
Imma: Yes, that's the Third Princess of the Hellas Empire. / [aside]she was on her way to meet Princess Arika to commence negotiations, and ended up captured by the enemy organisation alongside her.[/aside]
Nagi: No~w then, Princess. / We've rescued you, and that's all well and good, but this is where things really get tough. // We have no allies in the Confederation or the Empire... not even in your own country.
Gatou: Yes, I am afraid that much is undeniable. Indeed, Your Highness, your own capital of Ostia is in a similar situation. / Recent reports suggest that chances are high that the higher-ups in Ostia are heavily corrupted by the enemy.

3
Arika: I suspected as much... // My Knight.
Nagi: I told you already to stop calling me a freaking Knight, Princess! / [aside]heck, if we're talking classes, I'm a mage, not a knight![/aside] // [aside]it's so embarrassing![/aside]
Arika: You are no longer a soldier of the Confederation, correct? Then naturally, you are under my own service.
Nagi: Wha -
Arika: The Confederation, the Empire... / ...and my very own Ostia.
[Map:]
Above Arika's head: Bosporus
Behind Arika's head: Leading Power of the Mesembrina Confederation /Megalomesembria
By Arika's bubble: Tantalus
Behind Arika's arm: Tempe Terra // Tempe
Behind Arika's body: Klytamnestra
Middle (top to bottom): Eos // Tristan // Orestes
Right of Hellas continent: Vulcan
Left of that: Nyandoma
Above that: Hellas Empire
Bottom middle: Mesembrina Confederation
Above and to the left of that: Royal Capital of Ostia
Above that: Kingdom of Vespertatia
Below "Confederatio": Al Jamila
Left of Ostia: Elfanhaft
Left of Nagi's hair: Antigone
Below left bubble: Elysium conti.
Left of left bubble (top to bottom): Ariadne, Sirenum, Granicus, Brontopolis
[/Map]
Arika: It would seem the entire world is against us. // However... / You and your "Ala Rubra" are invincible, are you not?
[Label: Third Princess]
Rakan: [aside]Hm? Invincible?[/aside]
Arika: Struggling against the entire world... a fine proposal. // On our side, we have a mere seven people, but they are the greatest seven one could wish for.

4-5
Arika: So let us save this world! // Nagi, my Knight... be my shield! // Be my sword!
Nagi: ...Heh. // [aside]I told you, I'm a freakin' mage...[/aside] // Well, damn... // I sure can't accuse you of being a docile princess. // Fine, then. // My staff and my wings... / ...are yours to command.

[TN: Okay, this map is really getting old now ~_~ For the most part, it's the same as the one back on page 3, it's just zoomed out a bit, so I'll just mention the extra ones ~~]
[Map:]
Top: Argyre // Great Argyre Plains
Left of Nyandoma: Noachis
Below "Imperium": Imperial Capital of Hellas
etc. etc. ~_~
[/Map]
Narration!Rakan: (So... the counterattack began!! // Not that we knew who was really on our side and who was an enemy... It'd actually've been easier if the whole world WAS our enemy; then we could've just beaten 'em ALL up! // So how did we sort that out... hmmmm... ehhh... ah, screw it, it's too much of a pain! // The brainy bunch handled the working out who we actually had to fight! // And thanks to the Princess, we had at least got ourselves a few more allies. // So all us fighting types had to do was go beat up whoever turned out to be an enemy! // Getting more allies, beating up enemies an' chucking them in the enemy moat... it's simple stuff. // Most of our enemies were in the whole war thing for the profit - mafia, arms traders, officials playing the system in their own favour.

7
Rakan: But though they may have been in with Kosmo Entelecheia, those types were still just small fry. // Our real enemies were that snobby asshole and his pals!! // Yeah, we sure went through a lot!! // But finally, after a thrilling series of battles that would take a whole trilogy of movies or about 14 volumes to actually illustrate... // ...we closed in on the enemy's base of operations!! // And that base... // ...was smack bang in the middle of Royal Palace of the world's most ancient capital, Ostia! Its name... the "Gravekeepers' Palace"!!! // Now that's what I call a final dungeon!!

8
Nagi: ...They're so damn quiet, it's almost creepy.
Rakan: They'll be underestimating us. That's what evil organisations do.
[Label: The Hellas Princess gave him a haircut]
[Label: The Principal of Ariadne Academy, in her younger days]
Principal: Nagi-dono! // The Empire/Confederation Ariadne Combined Force are ready for action!
Nagi: Good. // You guys just have to deal with the automata and summons on the outside; then we'll be able to get through to the inner citadel. // We're counting on you.
Principal: Yes, sir. / Oh, and, ah... Nagi-dono...
Nagi: Hm?
Principal: C - C - Could I possibly have your autograph?
Nagi: Oh? Yeah, sure, if you like.
Principal: I - I truly admire you!

9
Gatou: We're not going to get the Confederation army on our side in time... and I daresay the same goes for Takamichi-kun and the Princess in the Empire. // Is there not some way to delay this final battle?
Imma: I'm afraid not. We'll just have to make do with what we have.
Eishun: The time limit is upon us.
Imma: Indeed... the enemy has already begun the "Ceremony to Return the World to Nothing". // The Twilight Imperial Princess, key to the world, is in their hands.
Nagi: Yeah. // (You just hang in there, lil' Princess-chan!!) // All right, men! // Let's move!!

10
Fate?: So we meet again, Man of a Thousand Spells. // How many times has it been now? // You have done a fair job reducing our numbers over these past six months. // Let's put an end to it right here.

11
Nagi: Yahhh!
Eishun: Hmmnh!

12
Enemy: You're... / Filius?!
Eishun: Rai... // ...KOUKEN!!
Kid: Hmph.
Rakan: Heh.

13
Nagi: Haaahhh!
Fate?: Nguaaaahhh!

14
Nagi: *pant* // *pant* // *pant*
Fate?: Magnificent... your strength is truly ludicrous...
Nagi: The Twilight Imperial Princess... where is she? Answer me that before you die.
Fate?: Heh... Heheheh... Don't tell me you are still under the foolish impression that I am the one behind all of this?
Nagi: Wh... What?

15
Imma: ?!
Eishun: Na - // NAGI!!!
Rakan: Who the...?! // ?!
Kid: Not good! // Kratiste Aigis!!

16-17
Rakan: NGHHHHH! // Ngh... // Impossible...!
Imma: Don't tell me... that's...

18
Narration!Rakan: And that... // ...was when the real mastermind - the final boss - took the stage!! // That was the first and last time in my life I ever thought "I can't win this". // It wasn't even about a gap in power... the second I saw that figure before me, I just knew I couldn't possibly defeat that. // I couldn't, but...
Nagi: Heh.
Sayo/Nodoka: [aside]his hands...![/aside]
Negi: [aside]F - F - Father...[/aside]

the little boy we see fighting with CW vs Fate(?)'s gang in 1 on 1 battle
according to cnet's translation, s/he seems to be hellas-princess.

No, that was just me having a temporary braindeath. Fixed now. Please feel free to slap me with a rubber chicken. ~~ Please slap any scanlators with a rubber chicken as well, in hope of preventing the silly mistake from making its way into any scanlations.

(The Hellas Princess is off in the Empire with Takamichi. Getting paired with a shota rather than becoming one. One wonders which is preferable :p)

Incidentally, all the princesses are now getting damn confusing ~~ We now have three separate Japanese words, for three separate characters, all being translated as "Princess". ~_~ Asuna, the "Tasogare no Himemiko" ("Twilight Imperial Princess", where "Imperial Princess" is a standard English translation for "Himemiko", but one wonders how appropriate it is here since I'm pretty sure it's not the Empire she's the Princess of... or is it...? >_<), Arika, an "Oujo" ("Princess", where the "Ou" means "King", so it's specifically the Princess of a Kingdom), and now this new Hellas princess, who's a "Koujo" (like "Oujo", but substitute "Emperor" for "King"... ie. literally an "Imperial Princess" ~_~) Agh.

lolz, thanks for clarifying it...
side question to everyone: abt the shota, in page 12, the panel where the enemy said "Anatawa Filius.." seems to pair with the panel where the shota reply "fun"... could we assume that his name is Filius?

cnet, if you don't mind, I just find out some minor thing...
Page 6, you say:
Quote:
And thanks to the Princess, we had at least got ourselves a few more allies.
implying only 1 princess (and I thought it was Arika)
But, in the raw, it is said "hime-tachi", i.e. "the princesses" implying both Hellas-princess and Arika...
just minor, as I said ^___^

Posted on Nov 15, 2008
Well, to be honest, I'm not entirely sure whether the "Hime-san" in that passage is referring just to Arika or the Hellas princess as well. I think "Hime-san-tachi" could be interpreted as "the Princesses" or "the Princess et al."; I was going for the latter interpretation (leaving out the "et al." part because it sounded too clumsy in English ~~), but now you mention it, the former seems rather plausible as well... Hm. ~~
