Kekkaishi chp 167
-> RTS Page for Kekkaishi 167
Another kks fan was so kind as to offer to upload the Chinese RAWs for me, so when he does so, I shall join Sai on Vol.8 so we don’t get spoiled XD. Until them, I’ll complete 168 and 169, featuring “Sen”!!
Sensei: Did you really not test it out on anyone?
Sensei: Well, even if you lied about it, I can understand.
Sensei: Forget it--- What’s more important,
-Is that you still can’t control your reactions.
-You’ve got to learn to reveal a lot less on your face.
Sensei: How about the rest of the Urakai…
-You didn’t arouse their suspicion, did you?
Sen: About that, definitely not!
-definitely did not practice psychic reading anywhere the Urakai might appear!
Sensei: Hey, I already ordered you to tone down your expression.
Sensei: Yes, just a reminder for your own good.
Sensei: What those guys think is your ability to read breathing patterns, and your deep emotional sensitivity
-is the same as my known abilities at hypnosis and brainwashing.
-It’s an excellent disguise.
-Especially in the case of unexpected situations, these can serve as your excuse.
Sensei: If you do that, then no one will ever realize,
-already possess the ability to read a person’s soul.
Text: IN REALITY, THE SECRET THAT ONLY URAKAI’S NO. 3 **** AND ***SEN KNOW IS----
YELLOW TANABE CHAPTER 167 SOUL READING
Sensei: Well then, who have you tested it on.
Sen: Just some random passerbys on the street, nobody we know…
Sensei: Could you read them easily?
Sen: Only the surface…
-But even if I couldn’t read a special part, I could figure out their feelings from their expressions,
-the images come in bits and pieces…
Sensei: That’s why I said you’ve got to tone down your own emotions.
-Abandon all but the essentials.
-Knowing how to separate the wheat from the chaff is very important in information collection.
Sensei: The crucial factor,
-Is not about finishing your reading of your subject,
-but how, when faced with incomplete information, you can use your mind to see the full picture.
-What luck, somebody’s here.
-She looks like someone about to commit suicide by jumping into the river…
Sensei: Is that clear.
-Our subject is that woman staring into the lake with a face full of doubt.
-I’d like to see the results of your training.
Sensei: Well then.
Sensei: My maximum reach is 10 m.
-so I’ve got to get a little closer to the target.
-What’s your maximum reach at this stage?
Sen: I’m training at a distance of 50m
-But I’m sure I could still extend it if I tried.
-If the subject’s an ayakashi with powerful spiritual energy, I can go further.
-But its more difficult with a human being…
Sensei: Not bad,
-Not bad at all.
-I’m going first.
-You stay here and try using your method.
Sen: It’s been ages since I’ve worked with *** Sensei’s technique…
Sen: It’s started!
Sen: Got her…
-Sensei’s aura is as tight as before, completely without any excess…
Sen: Wah, they’re rushing in.
-I’ve got to read them quickly, this is…
Sen: ** Sensei!
Sensei: Sen, how far could you read?
Sen: Pork chops and…sweet and sour pork…?
Sen: That lady…
-Must’ve been worrying about what to make for dinner, I guess…?
Sensei: Yes. That’s correct.
Sensei: What else?
-An image of a middle aged man…
Sensei: The relationship between her and the man is?
-No, probably husband and wife.
-But I felt some kind of distance…
Sensei: Are you referring to the physical distance?
-Or the emotional distance?
-But she seems to like him a lot.
Sensei: Do you know why that woman is so stressed out?
Sen: I don’t know…
-The image of the pork chops is stronger…
Sensei: That’s why I told you to use your mind to filter the information…
Sen: Even though the pork chops were burnt, she felt positive towards it,
-As for the sweet and sour pork, they were beautifully made, but she kind of hates it.
-Okay, that’s fine.
Sensei: That woman---
Sensei: Is expecting her husband to return from an overseas trip.
-she has started to worry about how to make her husband’s favorite food.
-That’s because she’s
Sensei: JUST TOO PATHETIC,
That is, referring to her cooking skills.
Sensei: So far, pork chops has been her most successful dish.
-While the sweet and sour pork is from the local take-out.
Sensei: So, which should she pick for husband dearest…
-That’s what’s she so stressed out about!
-Our subject was just an ordinary person.
-You need more practice.
Sensei: But remember, don’t ever use this technique in the vicinity of Taicho.
-You’d definately be exposed.
Sensei: Kekkaishi are a special breed. They are extremely attuned to abnormal spiritual currents in their vicinity.
-Up until now, apart from adepts from my school,
-He’s the only one I’ve met who is fully aware of soul reading.
Sen: Would Yoshimori have the same abilities…?
-Being his younger brother…
Sen: Even though he does look like a retard,
-The role he plays is a powerful one…
-Since then, rumor has it that he has defeated a few giant ayakashi…
-And I even told him about my ability to read ayakashi spiritual energy, and lots more stuff!?
-Oh man, could he have already seen through my secret…
Sensei: Hey you,
-I know you hate restraining your every move.
-The reason I’m still alive now is thanks to my extreme caution, isn’t it?
Sensei: Precisely because I cautiously cover my tracks, over and over.
Sensei: If our secret ability is leaked, we’re finished.
Sensei: The kind of person who reveals his soul for the sake of friendship,
-makes the most undependable friend.
- If we are missing one person, we will be too weak.
-Do you understand?
Sen: Then **-sensei. Why did you,
-Leak out Urakai’s secrets?
-So you know.
-Whose soul did you read it from?
Sen: I didn’t read it…
-I’ve being training at our HQ…
-I overhead a rumor circulating among the leaders…
-You belong to the department of intelligence.
-Why were you taking combat classes at HQ?
Sen: Its because,
-When **-sensei returned,
-I wanted to give you a hard kick…
-You wanted to execute me.
Sensei: Lucky for me, I’ve got other contacts,
-This is really where I belong!
-With such a gullible Taicho and teenagers.
-You guys are the cutest.
-A poor traitor like me has not choice but be exiled into freedom.
Sensei: Sigh---shame about my abilities…
Sen: Do you intend to retire from Urakai!?
-Would you like to join me?
Sensei: If you come with me, there’ll be more opportunities to use your abilities.
Sen: My abilities…
-But **-sensei, you’re already the No.3 in Urakai…
-What could you possibly be unhappy about…?
Sensei: Its not that, I…
-really don’t care about name and rank.
-I just have an uncomfortable feeling.
Sen: Urakai, makes you feel uncomfortable…?
Sensei: Ah~ah. Just a little…
Sensei: To have a guy that I completely cannot read giving me orders…
-Whichever angle I look at it, its just…very uncomfortable.
Masamori: Its **-san.
Please come in.
Sensei: Sorry for disturbing…
