Again with another fun chapter of Inugami! Looks like I'll continue this monthly after all! But first, let me answer a question messaged to me, and I'd like to address my answer to all who also want to get my translations. The question was about the sudden change of Inugami Chapter 1 from free to scanlate to reserved. I did that because it'll be a waste of effort for many other groups to separately do a single chapter with the same translation. I'd understand if it's for an international scanlator, though. Anyways, enough of that, here's the Cursed Princess and his fateful (?) servant!
Inugamihime no Shimobe
2nd Mystery: The Word in the T-Shirt is "Servant"
#the 2nd chapter of the master and servant story that has become quickly popular!
[Inuzuka Taroumaru, 15 years old, 1st year high schooler.]
[due to some reasons, he came to Inugami Castle,]
[and became Tatari...no, Inugami-hime's servant.]
[*he is hung upside down.*]
Hime: *bring down Taroumaru this instant, Sazen!*
*he's my servant, you know!*
INUGAMIHIME NO SHIMOBE
2nd Mystery: The Word in the T-Shirt is "Servant"
Sazen: no, Princess. this fellow is a good-for-nothing. \\ he hurts my eyes, so I'm gonna send him away.
[why did it turn out like this?] \\ [at first, it was about fried rice...]
Hime: what is this cuisine?
Inuzuka: -don't talk like an old man!-
it's called fried rice. what did you think I just cooked?
Hime: I thought it was red snapper wrapped in konbu...
^konbu=a kind of kelp
Inuzuka: I don't know that kind of cooking...
Inuzuka: how does it taste?
[she looks natural when she eats...]
Inuzuka: /she's Inugami-hime, the one that will wreak havoc upon the village.../
/see her? doesn't look like an old one.../
/she looks more like a 16-year old to me.../
/everyone around here use the story of the "scary Inugami-hime" to scare off kids.../
/I know it's a stupid town superstition, but hey, it does exist.../
[she looks more of a human though...]
Hime: well, \\ it's so-so...
Hime: this low-life cooking is not for my palate.
Inuzuka: *here, Inui-san, you can eat it!*
Hime: *what are you doing, you low-life!*
Inuzuka: hey, wait!
Hime: *it's mine! it's my fried rice!*
Inuzuka: *curse mode?*
*hold up, I'm gonna make more!* \\ *I'll make you some anytime, so calm down!*
Inuzuka: ah, sure...
Hime: tomorrow and the next day? even during day and night?
/ever since I came to this castle and became her servant.../
/I've been...almost alone with this curse--err...g...girl 24/7.../
[huh? wait, if that's the case, then this is a dangerous situation...]
Hime: Sazen! welcome back!
Inuzuka: *eh? who?*
Sazen: *Head Retainer of the Tsukumo House, Oukouchi Sazen.*
*I am the Princess' Guardian.*
Inuzuka: -uhmm, so...-
Sazen: I am like a parent to the present head of the tsukumo House, Aya-sama...
Hime: because of him, I'm over-protected...
Sazen: Princess, let me ask you one thing...
*that thing stuck on that brat's head,* \\ *what is that!?*
Hime: *it's the White-Feathered Arrow!* \\ *it's proof that he's my servant!*
Inuzuka: what's with the proud face?
Sazen: *I know it's been 20 years since the last Ceremony of the White-Feathered Arrow, but...* \\ *didn't you made a promise with me that time!?*
(!on Inuzuka's rope) neglected
Hime: dunno. \\ I just felt that I got to have a servant since I'm already 16!
Sazen: ...!! \\ then, you brat over there!
did you really want to become her servant?
Inuzuka: no. that's stupid, you know?
Hime: you're free to go home if you want...
(!on Inuzuka) -waaah!-
Inuzuka: *it's a joke! I wanna be her servant!*
are you scared of Inugami-hime's curse? I don't know if you're interested, but...
if you get close to her with half-hearted feelings, \\ as her guardian, I won't ignore that.
Sazen: it's been set for Inugami-hime not to go outside, \\ because humans surround the outside world.
*will you devote yourself to the Princess?* \\ *have you prepared yourself to do that?*
Inuzuka: ... \\ I haven't...
but she wants to have friends. \\ isn't it the fault of that rule that it isn't happening?
Inuzuka: I haven't prepared myself, \\ but I agreed to do it because I want her to make some friends.
because well, she's...a bit lonely.
Hime: *Sazen, it's also of my free will that--*
Sazen: taken care of.
Sazen: you are the current head. \\ I won't dare disagree with what you do.
Sazen: *but, Taroumaru!*
*a servant is a servant. don't be confused.* \\ *I won't be decieved with how you look down on the Princess earler.*
*do that again and I'm gonna smash that head of yours into the floor!*
Hime: now that you're getting along well, \\ let's eat some sweets in Taroumaru's room!
Inuzuka: eh, my room?
Sazen: *living with your servant under one roof is a disgrace! outside's plenty room for him.*
Inuzuka: /what am I, a dog?/
Sazen: "a dog house is good enough for you!" \\ ...is what I want to say, but I'm not that evil.
Sazen: *it's your own castle just a walk away from the main hall!*
Inuzuka: it's a haunted house...
Sazen: *that's right! happy?*
it just needs a little sweep, and it's gonna be perfect for you!
Inuzuka: sweeping? \\ just how many days it'll take even for three people?
Sazen: see you tomorrow! come there at 8 AM sharp!
Hime: see you, Taroumaru!
Inuzuka: /you demons!/
(!flashback) ... \\ ...
Inuzuka: /onii-chan has to go to the castle.../
/and get killed by the scary Inugami-hime./
/it's okay, Nene./
/the castle is a great place, right?/
/and, I'm gonna sleep in a luxourious room.../
/and eat a lot of delicious food!/
Hime: it's already 8, so I'm calling you out.
so, who's Nene?
Inuzuka: eh? my sister.
Inuzuka: my parent's aren't around, \\ so I work for our living expenses.
Inuzuka: hey, \\ wait, \\ *what are you wearing!?*
Hime: it's a haori inside Taroumaru's luggage...is it wierd?
^haori is the formal Japanese coat. I.E. the ones the Bleach captains use.
Inuzuka: -am I hallucinating?-
Hime: is it okay that I used this?
it's okay, right? since my servant's stuff is mine as well...
Inuzuka: *stop it! stop in so many aspects!*
but wait, my luggage?
Hime: last night, Sazen took them here.
Inuzuka: eh, Sazen did that?
he's a surprisingly good guy... \\ doesn'tlook...like it though...
Hime: *ah! give me that too!*
Inuzuka: but you,
*to hit me at the back of my head with your body...*
Hime: is it wrong?
Hime: *hey, is that Kuma-chan?*
Hime: *what a nice sun hat!*
Inuzuka: /this girl is nuts!/
(!letter) from the Kajiwara grandfather
Inuzuka: a letter...from the grandpa there.
Ojii: /"Dear Taroumaru-kun,
good job! sorry for putting your life on the line for our village.
it's your stuff, plus a bit of money and food as well. take care of yourself, okay?
don't worry about Nene, because she's we're taking good care of her here at the shrine."/
/the grandpa at Kajiwara./
/P.S. from the Priestess:/
/*you have nowhere else to go. go die there!*/
Inuzuka: /you hag!/
Hime: so Taroumaru, when will you take me to some friends?
Hime: friends! did you forget?
Inuzuka: ah, yeah...
/crap, I forgot!/
taking you out would be really hard, \\ but first, we go down the village.
Inuzuka: ... \\ /oh yeah, going out there is a no-go for her...but.../
Hime: is it okay for me to put on this thick haori?
Inuzuka: it's a uniform's blazer...leave it there.
Hime: a uniform?
Inuzuka: yeah, for school...
Inuzuka: /it's...impossible for her.../
Sazen: *going late on the first day, huh?*
*you got guts, bastard!*
*didn't I tell you to go there at 8?*
Inuzuka: *I'm zo soreee...*
^it's kinda mispronounced, so...
Sazen: *there's a lot of odd jobs at the castle,* \\ *but then you're here playing around!*
Sazen: *making her dress up like that!?*
*you have to be punished! wanna see what's like underground?* \\ *let's do it at the back!*
Hime: this is so fashionable, Sazen!
wash your face and change clothes already!
Inuzuka: eh? this is...
Sazen: it's a gift for your employment.
Sazen: *Princess, please change your clothes now!*
Hime: but why?
Inuzuka: do you hate me that much?
Sazen: *get back here, Taroumaru!* \\ *clean the garden with a dust cloth!*
#already with a sign of great troubles to come...
