Megalomania 2

Distorted Justice

+ posted by Plain Archetype as translation on Mar 31, 2009 14:05 | Go to Megalomania

-> RTS Page for Megalomania 2

Single slash denotes connected bubbles, double slash denotes completely new bubbles. Equal signs ( =Like this= ) denote thoughts outside of word bubbles. Double arrows ( <<Like this>> ) denote thoughts inside thought bubbles. Squiggly lines (~Like this~) denote words or SFX outside of word bubbles, usually above a character's head or something. Let me know if there are any mistakes.

Open to anyone for scanlation purposes as long as proper credit is given.

There are several pages that have writing on the left or right edges; these are ads for other comics, so I didn't think their was any point to translating them. If someone really wants to know, then I can.

I only translated sound effects that weren't too obvious/I thought were important to know. If someone asks, I'll probably translate them all next time. If not, I'll do that same thing.

Enjoy!

Megalomania Introduction

Right text:
Police action in another world!

Merri:
This is Merri // I was forced to give this explanation / It's rather annoying... // There is a race called “Ajin” in our world // They look like this / They have a history of being oppressed by humans // These are the people I have become indebted to / First, Canon

Canon:
~Tight...~

Merri:
She is an officer of the Police Force's Special Second Branch // She is the child of a human and an Ajin, it seems. // When she gets mad, horns grow out of her head and her face looks like a melon / It's a little creepy... // This is Bachenbell-san / He is an officer in the same branch // For some reason, he's nice to Ajin / But his sunglasses are scary... / I hate them...

Box:
What is the Special Second Branch?

Merri:
A police...force...established...to deal...with Ajin...crime...

Card:
Notes

Merri:
...it seems. // I don't get it. / ~Too hard...~ // Umm...how about that? // Is it okay?

Canon:
Very good!

Bachenbell:
Why are you making her do this?

Canon:
At this rate, she'll become completely anti-social / I'm doing it in order to get her people skills up...

Bachenbell:
Hah // That's harsh...

Bottom left text:
(black box) The story so far
(the rest) In a world where a created race called Ajin live...discrimination against Ajin by humans continues. Canon and Bachenbell, members of the Police Force's Special Second Division, rescued Merri, one of a rare breed of Ajin, from captivity and disrupted a mafia that participated in the slave trade...

Bottom text:
The story continues on the next page!


:::PAGE 2:::
voice:
At the height of the golden age of genetic engineering... // Humans created something that resembled them

Right text (panel 1):
The profound musings of a people created by humans!

Voice:
We who are called Ajin... // at some point began to question why we serve humans...why we toil for them


:::PAGE 3:::
Voice:
A long time passed // It is true that slavery was abolished // But the fact that humans are on top did not change

Wrapped face:
First, the sense of inferiority must be erased // The principle of equality was established after the East-South war // The day will come when that principle becomes reality

Pointy ears:
I understand, Earl Little (TN: Fun fact! That was Malcom X's father's name. The author is playing up the racial clash by drawing on the history of African American rights) / But nothing will change if all we do is wait


:::PAGE 4:::
Little:
Kuku... / Only morons // like the forceful tactics you use // I don't think it'll work // Well, go ahead...I won't stop you // It'll be good if you rage to your heart's content // Good for the rights of Ajin // As well as their honor


:::PAGE 5:::
Top text:
A huge sensation! The second chapter in a new series of police action in another world!

Right text:
Were humans the ones who distorted the world?

Megalomania
Chapter 2: Distorted Justice


:::PAGE 6:::
Lady:
So, Officer / We wanted to go to the Retro Museum // But we got lost on the way...

Canon:
The museum... / Let's see... // Just turn at that corner...

Guy:
Did you know, Elizabeth / That at the museum, there are displays / relating to the history of the oppression of Ajin and the East-South War / Actually, Ajin originally...

Elizabeth:
Wow, Jon, you know so much!

Canon:
=Ah...= // =This isn't the place to be cuddling...=


:::PAGE 7:::
Canon:
Wha... / Sempai! / Please do not fabricate people's thoughts!

Bachenbell:
Ah, you got me // But really // That was it // You were thinking something like that, right? / Canon

Canon:
Umm...

Bachenbell:
You're a sad girl / There isn't someone? // A guy like that for you


:::PAGE 8:::
Canon:
Well... / That is... // Whaat? // ~Taiyaki?~ (TN: Taiyaki is a fish-shaped cake made out of waffle batter that usually has red bean paste inside, although it can be found with other fillings)

Bachenbell:
Eat up // I got a good bargain

Canon:
Haah... / whatever // Thank you

SFX:
(panel 5) Chew chew chew // (panel 6) chew...

Canon:
Umm... // What is in this?

Bachenbell:
Uhh, it is...


:::PAGE 9:::
Bachenbell:
Sea urchin! // I wasn't able to conceal my suprise at the unexpected contents

Canon:
I cannot conceal mine either...really...

Merri:
Ah // Welcome back

Bachenbell:
Hey // Want some? // What's up wit that?

Canon:
It appears that she was traumatized by the watermelon last time

Bachenbell:
Well... // This is all well and good, but...


:::PAGE 10:::
Bachenbell:
This has turned into her lair

Canon:
When Carol comes back, she will be surprised for sure // Ah, by the way, I haven't seen Rebecca-san lately // Did something happen?

Bachenbell:
Like I know

Merri:
Carol? // Rebecca?

Canon:
Well...Carol-san is on sick leave right now / Due to some horrible food poisoning...

Bachenbell:
Hey! // Don't talk like it was my fault!


:::PAGE 11:::
Canon:
Please stop buying such weird things and bringing them here! // ~What in the world is this?~ // More and more junk continues to pile up...

Bachenbell:
Shut it / Don't make fun of people's hobbies! // Things like this have lots of uses...

Coolridge:
Hey


:::PAGE 12:::
Coolridge:
If you're so free, go patrol or... // They're not listening...

Bachenbell:
Uwaaah // Cold! // I don't want to go patrolling in this blasted weather / Carol needs to hurry up and come back...

Canon:
It sounds like you would force her to do all your work...

Bachenbell:
Oh yeah // Mind if we duck in the bank for a sec?


:::PAGE 13:::
Bachenbell:
Oh? // Hey, hey // What's up?

Canon:
Senpai.... / I... // feel... // crappy... / urp... // Bwuaaaaaharrrff (or whatever noise throwing up makes)

Voice:
Gyaaaaaa!

Long ears:
It's me // It's about time // Are you ready?

Box:
Bank of East Side, Twenty First Street Branch

Bank guy:
Ka...Kate-san // W-would you want to get dinner later...? / I made a reservation...

Kate:
I'm a bit busy at the moment // Can we talk later?

Bank guy:
Ah // Yeah... // It's hopeless // There's no way she'll go out with me...


:::PAGE 15:::
Bachenbell:
Ahhh / Why'd you do that? // There's no way I can wear this

Canon:
Please forgi- / ubuu // This / is probably due to the taiyaki...

Bachenbell:
Hmm?

Bank guys:
Who are you guys? / Is she okay?

Bachenbell:
Ah / Don't worry, she's just feeling a little off

Canon:
Uhu...uuuu...nice to meet you, father...

Bachenbell:
No... // She's totally out of it...


:::PAGE 16:::
Teller:
I'm extremely sorry sir, but would you please // get in line...

SFX:

Bank guy:
H-hey / What's going on?

Bachenbell:
That's a good question... // ~Hmm...~

Ajin:
You can't beat an Ajin in a fistfight! // Ah?! // Wha...!?


:::PAGE 24:::
Bachenbell:
Pfff // I know that

Bank guy:
Hey / Who are you?

Bachenbell:
I didn't say? // I'm a cop


:::PAGE 25:::
Voice:
This man appears to be the leader // His name is Morris Green / A member of the “Ajin Liberation Front”, an extremist groups that seeks to do away with Ajin discrimination

Moustachioed inspector:
The beast ain't helpin' his cause // So / what do they want?

Suit guy:
I have them on the line // Here

Morris:
Who do I have the honor of addressing?

Voice:
Pierre / Police Chief Pierre

Morris:
Oh, a hot shot / We'll try not to get too nervous


:::PAGE 26:::
Morris:
I'll cut to the chase // We request that you release our comrades being held in prison

Pierre:
So... // you're not after the money

Bachenbell:
I don't want to, but there's no choice // Sheesh / I have the worst luck // Oh yeah // I want you to do something for me... // Take this whistle // Climb into the air ducts... / Like a snake...

Bank guy:
Why do I have to... / What if they find me?

Bachenbell:
You work here, right? / Don't you want to help your friends?

Bank guy:
Uuh...

Kate:
~Thank you, Johnny-san!~

Johnny:
O-okay, I'll do it!

Bachenbell:
Okay / Canon, you stay here

People:
~scary...~

Coolridge:
And Bachenbell-kun is going to...?

Canon:
Yes... / I am sorry // I // cannot do anything at such a critical time... // Sempai... / I hope he does not overexert himself


:::PAGE 29:::
Ajin:
Muh?!

Bachenbell:
Ah

Coolridge:
It'll be all right // I don't know the details about why he transferred to the Second Branch // He may not look it, but he was an elite member of the First Branch


:::PAGE 30:::
Coolridge:
They won't get him that easily

Ajin:
Uoo!? // Che!

Unfortunately I was demoted and now work for a peaceful division // But you really are stupid // You should have taken the money and run


:::PAGE 40:::
Morris:
Don't get confused! // We're fighting for the rights of Ajin

Bachenbell:
For Ajin, huh / That' a good one // If that's so, don't come to a bank // that just makes you // a petty thief, right?


:::PAGE 41:::
Morris:
Ajin have always been exploited! // We deserve that money!


:::PAGE 42:::
(TN: the whole page is filled with whistle sounds)


:::PAGE 43:::
Morris:
Gwaa // aa // ahaaa // aa // what... / is // this noise...


:::PAGE 44:::
Morris:
Gah


:::PAGE 45:::
Bachenbell:
What you're doing just worsens the prejudice against Ajin // You're pushing too hard // Terrorism doesn't accomplish anything


:::PAGE 46:::
Johnny:
~Whaaat?!~

Bachenbell:
Assh, I'm beat / My back hurts again // Today couldn't get any worse

Canon:
That noise... // what was it?

Bachenbell:
Canon, you're alright?

Canon:
I can...manage to walk...

Bachenbell:
I wouldn't call that walking...

The First Branch...

Canon:
Sempai... // but.. // he said...!!


:::PAGE 55:::
Scar:
You look well, Bachenbell // I see you haven't thrown away that naïvety of yours

Bachenbell:
You haven't changed either // Hans // Is this...really something the police should do..?!


:::PAGE 56:::
Hans:
You should know // Bachenbell // That it is the right thing // And why we are necessary // You who ran away from the First Branch // You should know


:::PAGE 57:::
Coolridge:
Even though I don't look it, I'm a coward // The brawl with the Campaneros and today's mishap...I can't take it anymore

Canon:
Ah...I see // Sempai...seems down about something // I wonder if he will be okay...

Coolridge:
From my perspective, it was a bigger shock to you...

Canon:
Well...that... // It was strange // That...

Box:
I'll kill you next // Half-breeds...


:::PAGE 58:::
Canon:
Halfbreed...huh... // I thought I would be able to do something because of that // But...I really am powerless... // Come to think of it... // It seemed like Sempai knew that guy // I don't know anything about Sempai's past // Absolutely nothing... // huh...

this looks really well done, and a lot of effort placed into this, good work, but it seems like no-name is going to handle this series so I'll leave it alone.
