-Stay tuned to my website as I search for the truth from every angle!
-Don't miss it!!
-Wow, you made this awesome website?
-tehe! ...I sure did!
-It's the tale of one gorgeous camera-woman's quest for the truth!!
-I call it, "Kuroda Miu's thrill-vision"!!
-I chase after the events that happen all around town
-and only upload information I've confirmed with my own eyes and ears!
-Naturally, I'll be reporting on Spray King's identity too!
-We're rootin' for ya! Good luck!
-Club members can't leave without the chief editor's approval!!
-Ayame, I need you to design me a better layout and illustrations!
-Since your art isn't up to par, you're on PR, Tora! (t/n - public relations, like information gathering etc)
-That includes the minor things like shopping for supplies...
-...Well, I could use the practice drawing, so I don't mind
-I-I think I'll pass...
-HEY! Don't you run from me!!
-You're the head of PR! It's a great position!
-Great or not, I'll be the one to decide!
-LOOK WHAT YOU JUST DID, TORA!!!
-W-what??? I-I didn't...!!
-I've had enough of your complaints!!
(on this page are bubbles with a grey sound fx. all say "zun"...could be boom(?) loud music sfx)
-...wake the whole neighborhood, why don't ya?
-I'm in the ZONE today!
-HA!! You ain't heard me out!
-I hear you ran into King, eh?
-You know the kid's mine, rai?
sfx: zun zun
-I even got the green light, see?
-You don't stand a chance against him *(t/n - this is a pun/foreshadowing of what the chapter's about. in japanese, you say かませ犬, or "a dog poised to attack" to indicate someone who acts tough but can't win)
-HA!! Don't be bitter!
-I've got tons o' pawns, unlike you! I'll take 'im out in the blink of an eye!
-Just you watch, bro!!
-Keep it down
very small box that looks like a sign: The next day
-why do I have to buy a computer!?!
-To protect my freedom of speech! Just do what I tell you!
-...you could have at least spent YOUR money
-What's the matter?
-We're working to give abandoned dogs a place to live!
-We appreciate your kindness and support!!
(yet again, this panel has a tribute to mashima's team)
-Help lend a loving paw
-And give us a contribution today!
-TORA!! Hurry up and give a donation!!
-What the heck!?! I have no more money!!
-Kuroda? Kuroda, that you?
-Do you remember me? I was in your elementary school class! It's me, Manabu!
-MANABU?! What're you doing here?
-Well, taking donations like you see!
-Collecting donations, huh? Yeah, that's just like you
-Would you mind helping out? Any amount is appreciated!
-Okay, let's see...
-here ya go!
-aaaah!! MY ENTIRE SAVINGS!!
-You're such a winer, you know that?
-I'm totally sure! Helping contribute to abandoned animals
-makes good source material for my site, too!
-Mm-hm! I'm studying to get into a veterinary program
-That's right, you always loved animals
-Since I don't have a license to work, I thought I'd collect donations
-I want to do everything I can for them right now
-I even collect abandoned dogs and give them a home
-Oh, remember Koro? He's doing great!
-But you know, it's very rare that we find owners for these guys
-And we face bigger problems than just that...
-There's pups like this little guy who get into traffic accidents, and end up handicapped for life...
-And there's also pups handicapped with birth defects, which was a result of mass-breeding by vendors trying to capitalize on the pet boom
-Not to mention the countless dogs made ill from being raised in unsuitable environments
-Or the dogs put to sleep because their owners don't want them anymore
-It's all part of the cruel reality you don't see in everyday life
-...my gosh, I had no idea
small sfx - chomp
-I can't ignore the tens of thousands of dogs that die to causes like these!
-That's why I'm doing everything in my power
-to save pet's lives!
-By the way, do you mind if I do a report
-on exactly how my money is going to be spent?
-you mean MY money!
-Okay, but I better turn you over to someone more knowledgeable
-Since I'm also in school full time
-The only thing I have time for is doing this donation work
-Come with me!
-This is our group's supervisor, Sakata-san!
-Nice to meet you!
-Ever since our inauguration, our relief group has become the city's largest!
-Behind the scenes, not only have we tackled issues related to pets, but also societal and political issues, such as...
-Uwah!! Here comes a long story!!
-All righty, I'm going back to work!
-Ah!! Manabu-kun, just a moment. Will you join us for tonight's meeting?
-I have the time...but why invite me?
-Our organization's leader wishes to meet with you personally!!
-R-really?! He'll really meet with me!?
-Certainly! It's already been half a year since you've offered your help
-I'm sure he highly values your efforts!
-Why, thank you so much!!
-What's the big deal?
-Is this boss of yours such a big shot?
-Of course! He's the person who created this entire relief effort!
-They say he's a very benevolent person
-Oh, I can't wait to meet him for myself!
(the name of the place is "Good Company / relief centers")
car: chiii (screech?)
-This is the headquarters?
-It's not much different from our other branch offices
18 (this comic just went rated R)
-I'm Jack, the head honcho here!
-N-nice to meet you, I'm Manabu!!
-H-here's the record of our last fund drive!!
-Hahaha! Relax, relax! We'll get to that later
-I had...no idea you were into things like this, sir
-I'm not very good...with these kinds of places
-HA!! You got learn to party, let loose once n' a while, yeah?
-No! ...I mean, I'd rather be putting animals first! Do you have any work I can do?
-If you insist,
-I've got just the thing for you!
-A-aren't these the animals we were working to raise funds with!?
-Why are they in a place like this!?
-We should have more than enough money to treat them...!
-These fleabags aren't useful anymore!
sfx - dosa x2 (?)
-Hop to it!
-Separate out the weak ones we can't use no more!
-If they've got any life in them, they're great for the donation drives
-The ones that're too sick to stand won't raise us any more dough
-T-this is unforgivable!!
-We're a RELIEF organization!!
-Don't give us lip! Work!
-We ain't a charity here!
-Tons of these lame animals kept coming up
-So we had no choice but to use donation drives
-W-wait...don't tell me...
-You were just breeding animals for money!?
-Way to go, einstein
-You can breed 'em and sell 'em for cash
-And even if they're lame, you can still make cash!
-Hah, this business is GREAT
-There ain't nothin' better then passing your work off as humanitarian!
-You can throw the wildest raves off'a people's charity!!
-You used the donations for that!? What the hell---!?
-HA!! There ain't nothin' as stupid as pure and ignorant asses...
-M-manabu!! Are you okay?!
-Kuroda!? Why're you here?!
-I knew something was wrong with this group, but to find dirt like this--!!
-Get away, Kuroda!! These guys are insane!
-You're about to have a little taste of insane, too!
-H-hey!! LET GO!!
-Stop it!! Now!!
-It's like these people are under mind control or something!
-I only wanted to save animals' lives!!
-But I couldn't save any!!
-Even worse, I supported these evil creeps
-And tricked people openly!
-This...this wasn't supposed to happen!!
-Who the hell're you!?
grey sfx bubs are "zun" again
-Been a while, bro!
-It's about time you stop driving people insane
-Insane? Oh please...
-All I do is help people let lose the impulses inside 'em!
-C'mon now, you didn't forget? That's what we're all about!
-So kick it...and let's get this party STARTED!
-Let your body feel the beat
-and shake it side to side!
-'cuz it's his turn to DIE!
-HAHA!! Louder!! Pump it UP!
-The rumors were true
-He takes the "greed" we've set loose and seals it
-Can't say much for a human's "greed" set free
-These guy's "greed" to live is powerful...
-and when I set 'em free
-They become my loyal lil' pawns!!
-HAHA! You can't keep up with the wild animal instinct!
-Let alone once it's been ramped up!
-HAHA!! What's wrong?
-You an animal lover or sumtin'?
-I knew you wouldn't have it in ya!
-He's sucking...something(!?) out of himself...!?
-No way!! He removed his scent and attached it to his jacket?!
-Damnit!! Now I gotta take care of this personally!!
-You rely way too much on your pawns. You're wide open!
-YOUR "COLOR" IS MINE!!
-I'm gonna get a killer "tag" outta this! (t/n - this is clearly a tagline of his. In order to make this uniform, from now on, this is what it is. I went back and altered the ch1 script to be in harmony)
-I'm gonna...take you...down!! I have to...take you...down!
-Tough, ain't you?
-No duh...I can't...let the other bros laugh at me!
-They're always callin' me a loser...
-So I have to...prove to them...I'm capable too...!
smalled - HAA x2
-H-HUH?! Where am I?!
-H-hey Kuroda!! Wake up!! You okay?!
-That's awesome grafitti!!
-The two-headed guardian that expels anything that trespasses on his territory
-Nobody you need to know
-What's wrong with those people!?
-Having been sucked clean of their "greed", they're in a state of shock (t/n - lit. "complete exhaustion")
-...I had no clue
-I was deceiving people along with them
-What should I do from here on?
-You even need to ask?
-Are you gonna leave these pups here to their own?
-N-not at all!! Don't be ridiculous!
-If you can't do anything BY yourself
-Then start over FROM yourself
-And this time, do it while your other "self" keeps watch
-so you never lose what you stand for ever again!
-The next day
-...and once again,
-All I got was a picture of Spray King's grafitti
-...so what happened to Manabu?
-...well, the relief organization was disbanded
-but he said he'd still keep collecting donations
-And then, thanks to all his hard work a lonely pup found a new home!
-Meet the newest foster parent!
-Seeing how Spray King keeps showing up wherever I go
-It just goes to show how accurate my "vision" is! (t/n - remember this is from ch1, she calls it vision, but it's more like intuition)
-...yeah but you still didn't get him on film
-Shut up!! People who ran away have no right to complain!
-Where the heck did you go anyway, leaving me alone!?
-I was able to find out a big secret!!
-Yep!! A secret about Spray King's grafitti!!
vertical left: Is she narrowing in on King!? Don't miss our next issue!
