Gintama 397

Samurai's country.

+ posted by Bomber D Rufi as translation on Apr 18, 2012 22:11 | Go to Gintama

-> RTS Page for Gintama 397

Considering the lesson title is what everyone in the series has gone on and on about from the very first page of this manga back in 2003, I think we're sorta achieving some kind of full circle effect here.

Hi wa mata noboru only.

(Side text- Overlapping memories...)

Shoyou: Our comrades...


Shoyou: And everyone....

Please protect them for me, okay?

Let's make it...

A promise.


(Side text- A vow until the end...)
Lesson 397: Samurai's country.

Gintoki: Yeah...

It's a promise.


{His right hand still....!!}


(Sfx- Gahh Grab)



(TN- Yup, they're really going at it.)


(TN- Ooh pretty SFX to translate.)

(Sfx- Gahh grabb)

(Sfx- Hyan fwffft)

(Sfx- Gahh grab)

(Sfx- Doohh shink)

Oboro: You would do better to return to hell...

(Sfx- Bushiii bliiiish)



(Sfx- Gopaaaaah BOOM)

(Sfx- Kah sft)

(Sfx- Gashiiin Shfft)

(Sfx- Mishimishi grndgrnd)


Gintoki: Oooh so sorry.

I just remembered I have a previous engagement.

(Sfx- Mishiih grnnnd)

Gintoki: I think a room in hell has already been booked for you..

So you go on first and wait there for me.


Oboro: You...


Gintoki: Say what's up...

To Sensei for me.





(Sfx- Dogoooh thuumpthump)
(Sfx- Gogaaaaaah crsssssh)

(Sfx- Gogogogogogo rmmmmmble)

(TN- He's dead Jim.)


Gintoki: Heh...

A pinky promise....

Ain't something to sneeze at.


Tsukuyo(?): Tendoshuu....

Nobume: How cute. They were scared their cute little doll Sadasada was in trouble, and came in force to save him.

Sadasada: Heheheh...


Sadasada: Too bad you mongrel of the Hitotsubashi....

For now you will take your last breath.

Those arms...

Have reached into heaven.

I told you before didn't I? No one can judge me.

The ones who will be judged are you all.

You'll do well to remember this...

What happens to those who are foolish enough to rebel against heaven.

Tendoushuu: Lord Sadasada...

It seems you're being punished quite severely.


Tendoushuu: I presume there is a reason for all of this...?

A reason for these circumstances....why the politics of the whole world have spilled out of the place and become a huge incident.

It would be prudent for both sides to discuss this.

You, woman....and the mimwarigumi....I'm sure you have something to say as well..

But there is no need. We will take this into our hands.

More important than the politics behind it, what is important is to bring this conflict under control.

The randomness of human nature and anxiety has wavered and lead to this.

We will take Lord Sadasada with us for a little while.

We will do a thorough investigation, and then act accordingly.

To ensure that this is dealt with fairly and to stop this incident before it goes any further...

We will need to deal with you as well of course.

???: There is no need.


(Sfx- Gaah Sfft)

Shigeshige: I thank you for all of your diligent work until now through the good and bad...

But this is a problem in our country and as such we will be the ones to solve it.

Sadasada: Shi—Shigeshige?

Tendoshuu: Oh, if it isn't the Shogun-dono....how are you?

Cleaning up after yourself I take it?

But are you sure about that? I realize you propose to take care of this yourself...

I implore you to leave this to your uncle...after all such dirty work shouldn't be placed on the shoulders of someone as gentle as you.

Or are you going to actually judge the beloved vassals who pointed a sword at their lord?

Shigeshige: They did not...

Point a sword at their lord.

Shigeshige: Even if they are scorned as traitors to the country...

Even if everyone in this land were to become their enemy...

I know full well their struggles to protect what is important.

What drives them are not the laws created by statesmen...

Nor is it an empty sense of duty to serve and protect the shogun as his retainers.

The law known as their beliefs....

And the lord that is their souls...

Are the reasons why they fight.

No matter how much dishonor they have to wear...

Those hearts and souls will never be defiled.

If I have to judge them...

Based on their sins and fates...


(Sfx- Gachaaan clacck)

(Sfx- Zugogogo rmmmble)

(Sfx- Gagooon clank)

(Sfx- Gagooon clang)


Shigeshige: Then all of the swords I have foolishly had my forces point at you..

Are to share the same guilt.

If you are to judge an entire country...

It would fall into ruin would it not?

Sadasada: Shi--


Shigeshige: All of them have committed a crime..
And as their lord I have to answer for all of them...no the shogun family will.


You won't be able to stop me....I have already prepared myself to take responsibility.


(Letter- Official notice of resignation.)

Shigeshige: We shall go together...

To the depths of hell.

Sadasada: Shi—Shigeshige!!

You intend to resign as Shogu---

Shigeshige: Leave.

This is...

Samurai's country.

(Side text- An unchanging soul still remains there...!!)
