I feel like it has been quite a while since I was making and revising the story for the tankoubon. Actually, it’s been only 4 months, though. So, I seriously felt that that was some super busy time.

…Hm, oh no!
That’s just the way of life of a normal mangaka. Even after the serialization has ended, there’s no time to seriously talk about such thing, right!?
I’ll do my best! I will continue to give it my all!!

>Mid R Frame
You! You dare to spout such words when you were the one who attacked us first!?

>Mid L Frame
Perry-dono, our country absolutely does not wish to get involved with foreign countries
I must ask you to give up

>Bottom R Frame
--R Bubble
Ooh… What a cold response
--L Bubble
However…, I desire this country!

014
>Top L Frame
So you are saying you have let Zero escape again…?

>Bottom R Frame (upper)
You…

>Bottom L Frame (lower)
Utter fool!

015
>Mid R Frame
How many times does this make!?

>Mid L Frame
And the Britannia trading companies that are dominating the Japanese market, do you know how many times those companies have been robbed!!?

>Bottom Frame
They even dare to steal knightmares recently!

016
>Top R Frame
This just shows how useless the Japanese people are

>Bottom R Frame (upper)
What’s with that rebellious glare!?

>Bottom R Frame (lower)
You barbaric Japanese!!

>Bottom L Frame (upper)
Muguh!!

>Bottom L Frame (lower)
--R Bubble
Muguh
Ugh
--Mid Bubble
Ughhhhhh
--L Bubble
Are you alright, Suzaku?

017
>Top Frame
Lelouch…

>Mid Frame
--R Bubble
Geez, that’s some cruel treatment
Here, I’ll give you a hand
--Mid Bubble
I’m fine, really
--L Bubble
Wait…

>Bottom Frame
--R Bubble
You…do you have any idea who I am!?
--L Bubble
I am the special inspection officer Jeremia…

018
>Top R Frame
--R Bubble
I am honored to meet you
--L Bubble
I am the commander of the Shinsengumi, Lelouch Lamperouge

>Top L Frame
--R Text
The Shinsengumi---
--L Text
---He’s from that military organization…

--Text Outside Frame
A military organization/ special police force formed during the period of Bakumatsu, particularly in Kyoto. Its purpose is to fight against the anti-bakufu/shogunate

>Mid R Frame
Our side also needs to hear a few things from him
So, I’ll be borrowing Suzaku

>Mid L Frame
Wait!
We haven’t done talking…

>Bottom R Frame
You would turn your eyes away from your own mistakes and then push them onto your subordinate, I take it?

>Bottom L Frame
What did you say!? Even if you’re Shinsengumi’s commander, that’s still considered rude!!!

019
>Top L Frame
The fact that Suzaku has let Zero escape is indeed true…

>Mid R Frame
--R Bubble
However, the security measures information that was leaked beforehand…,
Furthermore, letting the criminals slipped through the blockade…
--L Bubble
Jeremia-dono…

>Mid L Frame
--R Text
Those are-
--L Text
your responsibility!!

>Bottom Frame
--R Bubble
I’m afraid your information management is just too ill-prepared
--L Bubble
Let’s go, Suzaku

020
>Top Frame
So, has Zero made his appearance again?

>Bottom R Frame
But you don’t have to worry about him; Zero never hurts people, after all

>Bottom Mid Frame
Well, Onii-sama always worries about me that he wouldn’t tell me the truth

>Bottom L Frame
It’s true, Zero is indeed a thief but he definitely won’t hurt people

021
>Top R Frame
--R Bubble
Guess he’s what we call “chivalrous thief”
--L Bubble
chivalrous thief…,is it?

>Top L Frame
Well, from the public’s point of view, he is one

>Mid R Frame
Excuse me
I’m from the pizza shop
It’s a delivery

>Mid L Frame
Well then, Suzaku-san, please take your time

>Bottom R Frame
--R Bubble
Nunnally, will you be okay by yourself?
--L Bubble
I’ll be okay, even though I’m like this, I still can do many things by myself

>Bottom L Frame
I see, please take care

022
>Top Frame
--R Bubble
About Zero’s case, it was unfortunate
--L Bubble
Aah, how about your investigation on the “Black Restoration Order”? Got any lead yet?

>Mid R Frame
--R Bubble
Whether it’s a force coming from the mainland or a collaboration from the imperial capital---
--L Bubble
I’ve already given up on this matter

>Mid L Frame
We already have our hands full protecting the Britannians from the previous surprise attack

>Bottom R Frame
Is that so…

>Bottom L Frame
But,
the situation just might change for the Zero’s case

023
>Top R Frame
Change? What do you mean?

>Top L Frame
It appears that Britannia is getting serious about it…

>Mid Frame
I’ve heard a rumor about the deployment of the newest knightmare from the Peace Preservation Task Force,
The knightmare is called “Lancelot”

>Bottom R Frame
With this, we should be able to fight back against that “Gawain”

024
>Bottom Frame
They have mobilized the security along the shore a few days ago, so our movement on the land will be tight.
However, there’s absolutely no security on the open sea

025
>Top Frame
Lancelot is being carried by a blackship called “Avalon” which is anchored in Koubekou 2nd pier

>Bottom Frame
They must be thinking that we, the Black Restoration Order, have never carried out our operation on the sea

026
>Top R Frame
--R Bubble
But commander, we don’t even have a single boat, you know
--L Bubble
Ah, you’re not telling us to swim or something, are you?

>Top L Frame
I’ve taken care of that matter

>Mid L Frame
--R Bubble
An air-filled ship made of a material called rubber
--L Bubble
We’ll sneak into Avalon with this

>Bottom Frame
--Mid Bubble
First unit leader, Kouzuki Karen
I’ll have you carry out the diversion task using Guren Nishiki
--L Bubble
Understood

027
>Top Frame
--R Bubble
Well then, Black Restoration Order,
--L Bubble
Move out!!

>Bottom L Frame
For our Japan!

028
>Top Frame
So, this the black ship “Avalon”

>Bottom R Frame
--Upper Bubble
You over there! Be on guard!
--Lower Bubble
I-I’m sorry!

>Bottom L Frame
Did you forget about what this Avalon is carrying!!?
If the Black Restoration Order managed to get their hand on this thing, I’ll…

029
>Top Frame
--R Bubble
Gu-Guren Nishiki!?
--L Bubble
It’s the Black Restoration Order!!!

>Bottom R Frame
You coward! There’s no way we can win against a knightmare

>Bottom L Frame
But, at this rate, we’ll be…

030
>Top R Frame
I won’t let you!

>Bottom Frame
--R Bubble
You again!
--L Bubble
You’re just a single human! Don’t get too conceited!!

031
>Top Frame
Eat this!

>Mid Frame
It appears that Karen has carried her task very well

>Bottom L Frame
Good, let us proceed

032
>Top Frame
You damn pest!! Stop moving around!!

>Mid Frame
How can you fight against a knightmare!?

>Bottom Frame
--Big Text
Suzaku, you bastard!!
--Thin Text
Aaah geez, so irritating!!!

033
>Top R Frame
Jeremia-sama! Please get the reinforcement quickly!!

>Top L Frame
What are you doing!? Seize them now!!

>Mid Frame
--R Bubble
Show me that you redeem yourself from your previous failure the other day!!
--L Bubble
…Hm?

>Bottom R Frame
--R Bubble
Wha… Gawain!?
--L Bubble
It can’t be!?

>Bottom L Frame
Zero!!!

034
>Top R Frame
The most cutting-edge knightmare Lancelot,
We, the Black Restoration Order, shall put it to good use

>Bottom R Frame
We are truly grateful for your immensely wonderful gift

035
>Top Frame
You will not do such thing!

>Bottom R Frame (upper)
Hoo, what a pleasant surprise…

>Bottom R Frame (lower)
Kururugi Suzaku!

>Bottom L Frame
This is the startup key of Lancelot

036
>Top Frame
You will mobilize Lancelot and put a stop to Zero

>Bottom R Frame
Tsk, that princess, what an unnecessary thing to do!!

>Bottom L Frame
--R Bubble
Hurry up, C.C.!!
--L Bubble
I’m doing it!

037
>Top R Frame
However, I thought only Britannians have the right to ride on a knightmare…?

>Top L Frame
--R Bubble
This is not the time to meddle on such matter
--L Bubble
Do you think it is fine for them to steal Lancelot just like that!?

>Mid R Frame
You will put a stop to them

>Mid L Frame
Kururugi Suzaku

>Bottom L Frame
Not good!!
Guren! Stop him!!

038
>Top Frame
Understood!!

>Bottom R Frame
Don’t think you will keep dodging-

>Bottom L Frame
My attack!!

039
>Top R Frame
Eh? Huh!?

>Top L Frame
Tsk

040
>Top Frame
Damn it! The wires!!

>Bottom R Frame
However, if it falls from this height, not even the most cutting-edge knightmare will…

041
>Top R Frame
Kuh

>Top L Frame (lower)
Please make it!

>Bottom R Frame
Lancelot, startup!!!

042
>Top Frame
I have received Lancelot back,

>Bottom Frame
Zero!!!

NOTE
Naming:
Lelouch Lamperouge’s name, 琉々朱 欄縁待 (ruruushu ranperuuji) is made of the first kanji from 琉璃 (ruri = lapis lazuli/beryl), 朱(cinnabar, vermillion, red), 欄(column of text/field), 縁 (fate/relationship/family ties) and 待(waiting).

Zero’s name is written as 零 (rei/zero) which means…zero (durrrr)

Knightmare (騎士銘亜/naitomea), the first two characters mean “knight”, I’m not sure whether the rest are supposed to have a meaning or not

Gawain, 我勝, depending on how you see it, the name could mean “my/our victory”, I think?

Nunnally’s kanji, 那奈離(nanarii), I don’t have the slightest idea about the name’s meaning. Heck, I don’t think it supposed to have any.

Lancelot (蘭須露斗/ransurotto), I don’t think it’s supposed to have a meaning either. 蘭=orchid/the Netherlands, 須 don’t have any meaning by itself (I guess?), 露=exposed/scanty/naked/public/open, 斗=measure of volume/square bearing block/Chinese “Dipper” constellation

Perry:
When Perry’s speaking, try to imagine stereotype Japanese-speaking gaijin. In this manga, Perry’s lines are mishmash of katakana, hiragana and kanji to show the way stereotype Japanese-speaking foreigner talk.

Bakumatsu era, closing days of the Tokugawa shogunate/ end of Edo era
