I basically translated this from scratch, but I've read passages of Rei's translation, so I can't rule out that I might have been influenced at some points, so I give her credit.
The reason why I stopped translating is mostly, that Carlos' translations have gotten pretty good. And I had less time, because I took my final school exams.
Now I'm studying aerospace engineering, so you can guess how much time that leaves me.
I translated this one mostly because I wanted to show you guys, that I'm still there, after I wasn't asked for a comment in the yearbook (that kind of hit me, but on the other hand some greater translators weren't asked either).
How do you like the avatar I made?Typesetters, please read this carefully
Big thanks to Ewino for helping me get rid of all the typos!

Thought Bubble in the lower left corner: That guy just said he'd be "supervising" you!!!
Night 137: The Orphan and the Clown
<I noticed, that Rei translates this as "Foundling child and Pierrot". This is essentialy what is said in Japanese, but my philosophy is that a translation is a separate artwork, so style takes priority over matching exactly what is said. Also, "Pierrot" is used as a word for clown in Japanese>Lenalee:
Where's my brother?Reever:
Hold on, LenaleeLenalee:
2: A guard from central is following Allen around. What does that mean?Ruberie:
1: Well well
