Mononoke Soushi 2

The Whale-God

en
+ posted by fevrier as translation on Dec 3, 2009 23:42 | Go to Mononoke Soushi

-> RTS Page for Mononoke Soushi 2

for this chapter, all lines go to our heroine, so it was easier to just omit speaking credits. Page numbers are continuous with the first chapter.

chapter 2: The Whale God

[20]
あっしは”手の目”だ
先見や千里眼で旦那方の酒の席を取り持つ芸人だ。
I am the "Hand's eye"
I am a performer with the gift of clairvoyance and foresight who travels between the sake houses of my noble patrons.

[21]
親なし家なしの浮草家業。
旅も随分しましたさ。
It's the job of a floating reed who has no parents nor family.
I've made many journeys.

何そんな洒落たもンじゃねえ。
その地に居られなくなったから他へ逃げなきゃ仕様がねえ。
It's nothing glamorous.
When I could no longer stay in one place all I could do was flee elsewhere.

ただ その繰り返しを続けたら
いつの間にかの旅鳥
However, as I continued this cycle,
before I knew it I had become a migrating bird.

ある時浜へでたと思いねえ
One time, I was at the beach...

[22]
あー
勇魚(鯨)だ
Ah-
It's a whale.

勇魚てえのは不細工な野郎でね。
間違って浜に上がっちまうともう どうにもならねえ。
Now you see, Whales are rather ugly fellows.
It had made a mistake, coming up on the beach. There was no way to help it.

てめえの重さで息が出来なくなって死んじゃうのさ
Because of its weight, it couldn't breathe anymore. It was going to die.


[23]
難儀な奴だねおまえも
You're suffering, aren't you.

あたしひとりじゃ沖へも戻してやれない。
漁師を呼んでもここでさばかれて食われちまうばかりだ。
Well, I can't return you to the open sea all by myself.
And if I call the fishermen here, they'll just decide to eat you.

なんでえ泣いてるのかい
でかい図体して情けねえ。
Why are you crying?
With such a huge frame, it's just pitiful.

いいよ 寂しけりゃあたしが居てやる
It's okay. If you're lonely, I'll be here.

[24]
こうしてついて居てやるよ
I'll be right here, like this.

ほら、空は青いよ
まるで頭の上に海があるみたいだねえ
Look, the sky is so blue.
It looks like there's an ocean above your head.

[25]
あたしは 勇魚が息をしなくなるまで色々話してやってから。
人がくる前にそこを離れたよ。
I stayed with the whale until it could no longer breathe, telling it all kinds of stories.
Before any other people came, we parted.


Ah.

[26]
何か飛んでくると思ったら。
Somehow, I felt like something was flying behind me.

おまえだったのかい
So it was you.

[27]
あいよわかったよ
もう空にお帰り。
You like me, I get it.
Go back home to the sky.

ついてけるじゃないよ!
くるなってば!
Don't follow me!
I said not to come!

[29]
こら いいかげんにしろ!
Cut it out already!

変なもんに懐かれちまった
それでもこのごろは見なくなって
The strange creature had somehow become attached to me.
What's more, these days I haven't been able to see him.

やれやれ成仏してくれたかひとあんしん
そう思っていたのにさ。
I'm relieved. I think he's finally gone to heaven.

そもそも旦那もいけねえや
芸人に手を出すもんじゃねえ
Now, this is no good, sir.
You can't lay a hand on a storyteller.

[30]
なあに あたしもこんなのはなれっこさ。
酒の上の戯れごとはいつものことさ。
What? I'm used to this sort of thing.
A little wantonness after sake happens all the time.

酔っぱらいのひとりぐらい
笑ってあしらえるってのに。
It's just one drunkard.
I can just smile and deal with him.

[31]
どすん!
SFX: THUD!!

[32]
あ~~~~あ~~~
余計なことしやがって。
Oh dear.
That was a little overkill.

あたしを助けたつもりかい?
大きなお世話だってんだよ。
Did you mean to save me?
You've certainly done a lot to take care of me, but...

笑ってごまかすなあ!!
It's not something you can laugh at!!

(grin)

[34]
さて、困った。
残ったのはぺしゃんこ旦那とあたしだけ
Well, now I'm in trouble.
All that's left is me and my flattened patron.

この始末どうしてくれようか
Why did you give me this to deal with?
