Guidelines For Using My Translations

[TN: For a while now, I've been granting Binktopia semi-exclusivity for my OP translations (with the sole exception of the weeks when Mangastream provided me with early RAWs). However, in recent weeks Binktopia have been releasing days later than other scanlators (and Mangastream have been ignoring me as well, for whatever reason...) so I really can't see where the advantage lies for me in keeping up this whole thing any more. So I'll just be going back to fully public translations until someone gives me an excellent reason to do otherwise ~_~]

3
Pirates: EVERYONE STOP AKAINU~~~~~~~!!!
People: !!! // FIRE~~~~~~!!!!

4
People: !!!
Pirated: It's no good... there's no stopping this guy!!
Akainu: It would appear that you have life in you yet...
Ace: !!!
Luffy: STOP~~~~~!!!
Jimbei: I will allow no more of this...!!!

5
People: !!!
Pirates: Jimbei!!!
Mr3: Aahhhh~~~~~~!! This is a relief... I thought I was going to...
Marco: Just get these handcuffs off!! Now!!
Jimbei: Unghh......
Akainu: I suggest you put an end to your attempts to buy time, Jimbei. / As a former Shichibukai, you should be all too familiar with the power I wield...
Jimbei: If by tearing this body apart... // ...I can delay you in the slightest, then I am content!!! / I never intended to place value on my own life from the outset!!!

6
Marines: Vice-Admiral Garp!!! What are you doing?!!!
Sengoku: What do you mean to do, Garp?!!!
People: !!!
Garp: *pant*......!! You'd better... keep me held down here tight, Sengoku!!! / ......!!! Because if you don't......... you can be damned sure... // ...I'm going to murder... that Sakazuki!!!
Sengoku: .........!!! You fool...!!!
Someone: It would seem that a little punishment for this traitor is in order!!!
Someone: Jimbei, get down!!!
Jimbei: .....................!!!

7
Akainu: ?!!!
People: Commander Vista!! Commander Marco!!!
Akainu: Ngh...!! Ahhhh, this is getting irritating.........!! // Haki users now...? // Can you not see that it is too late for Fire Fist?
Vista: For a moment's neglect, I feel boundless regret...!!
Marco: How could we let this happen...?!!

8
Luffy: !
Pirates: Ace......!!!
Ace: .........!! I'm sorry......... // .........Luffy...
Luffy: ...............!! // Ace!!! ...We've gotta hurry and treat your -
Ace: I'm sorry I couldn't let you save me properly.........!!! / *pant* // Forgive me......!!! // *pant*

9
Luffy: What are you talking about?!! Don't say stupid things like that!!! / *pant* // Somebody deal with his wounds!!! Somebody save Ace!!!
Pirates: Hurry over here, Doctor!! He needs emergency treatment!!!
Doctor: Coming!
Ace: It's no good!!! ...*pant*... / ...I can tell when my own end has come...!!! / *pant*

10
Luffy: You told me, didn't you, Ace...?!!! // You said you wouldn't die~~~~~~~!!! / Uunnhhh...
Ace: ...Yeah... you know... if it weren't for the Sabo thing... and having a little brother like you to look out for... // ...I would never have... even... wanted to live...
[TN: I hate you, Oda. Okay, DISCLAIMER: I have no idea what "sabo no ken" refers to. "~no ken" is pretty much the vaguest structure ever, and I don't know whether "sabo" is a person's name, the name of a thing, or anything else that it could feasibly refer to (edict suggests that the word can be an abbreviation of "sabotage", or a type of shoes, and to be honest, I can't rule either of those out either).]
Flashback!People: If Gold Roger'd had a kid~? // Then he oughtta be executed!!!
Ace: Nobody else wanted me to, after all... // ...so it's only natural.........!
Flashback!People: Oh, I've got a good one! How about sticking one needle in his body... // ...for every person in the world with a grudge against Roger! // No, he should be burned at the stake...!! That way the whole world... / ...could watch and laugh as he went to his death!! // They'd all be saying the same thing, you know?! / "Serves you right!" Gyahahaha!

11
Flashback!People: I know what his last words should be, as well! / "I'm sorry for being born, piece of trash that I am!" // Ah, well. Not like he really exists. // .........
Flashback!Dadan: Ace!!! You've been causing trouble in the town again!!!
Flashback!Ace: Shut up!! If I was stronger, I would've killed the lot of them!!
Flashback!Dadan: What did you say~~?!!
Ace: ......... // ......Oh, yeah... if you ever... happen to run across Dadan... / Could you tell him goodbye from me...? It's weird...
Luffy: ..................
Ace: Now that I'm about to die... I even feel like I miss that idiot...
Luffy: ...............!!!
Ace: I have just...... one regret... / That I won't be able to see... your dream come to pass...... / *pant* // ...But I know you. / You'll pull it off for sure......!!! // You're my brother, after all......!!!

12-13
Ace: ...Just like... we promised back then... / I have no regrets... about how I lived my life...!!
Luffy: .........No!! You're lying!!
Ace: *pant*... *pant*... No, it's true......!! // ...It looks like what I really wanted in the end... // ...wasn't fame or renown at all... // ...It was an answer to the question...
Luffy: !
Ace: ...of whether I should have... been born. // ......*pant*... My voice... is getting too quiet... / ......Luffy, I want you to listen to what I say now...... / ...and tell it to the guys... afterwards...
Luffy: ......
Ace: .........!! Old man.........!!! // All you guys......!!! // And... // ...Luffy......
Luffy: !
Flashback!Ace: Get out here! I'm here to take the head... / ...of Whitebeard!!
Whitebeard: ...............!!
Ace: Even though I've been good for nothing my whole life...
Marco: *pant*...... *pant*...
Ace: Even though I carry the blood of a demon within me......!!
Flashback!People: Ace~~~~~! We're gonna save you, no matter what! // Don't you dare give up~~~~~!!

14-15
Ace: You guys still loved me... // ...Thank you so much...!!!
Pirates: !!! // Ace......!!
Luffy: !

16
Flashback!Ace: Gramps... do you think...
Luffy: Ace......?
Flashback!Ace: ...I should really... // ...have been born...?
Flashback!Ace: What, did you think I was dead?

17
Flashback!Luffy: I......!!
Flashback!Ace: What're you crying for?!! / Don't act like people are dead when they're not, dummy!! // I'm not gonna die, no matter what!! That's a promise!! / Like hell I could die and leave my weak little brother all on his own!
Flashback!Rouge: If it's a boy... "Ace"... // Gol D Ace... the name of our child...

Based on 2ch, the "sabo" thing seems to be something new, a foreshadowing. So don't worry about it, your translation's probably right.

And mangastream's been ignoring me, too. Dunno what's up with that...

Thanks cnet. I'd say great translation as usual, but I think you know that. :)

...Does Luffy's look at the end of the chapter freak anyone else out? Considering there's no screaming SFX, I take it he's silent....either way he's creepy with that vacant look in his eyes...

Thanks CNet, awesome translation as always. :D

Just a little detail:

In Garp's speech of page 6, the word would be held not help, I suppose, so that the sentence make sence. Right?

Like:

Garp: *pant*......!! You'd better... keep me held down here tight, Sengoku!!! / ......!!! Because if you don't......... you can be damned sure... // ...I'm going to murder... that Sakazuki!!!

"sabo no ken". the direct translation of sa-bo is "sand protection" ("defense against earth") or "sand guard". and no ken, as you know can refer to "blade" or "sword".

now the MOST logical translation would be "sand blade". this makes sense as ace was ready to die BUT CROCODILE saved him with those sand blades hitting the executioners. hope that helps. also ace doesnt know crocodiles moves so saying "sand blade thingy" - which is what hes basically saying makes sense.

alse here:
14-15
Ace: You guys still loved me... // ...Thank you so much...!!!
Marines: !!! // Ace......!!
Luffy: !

isnt it the pirates saying "ace" not the marines??

No offense, but you clearly don't have a clue what you're talking about. Apart from anything, the "no ken" you're talking about uses a completely different kanji. The "sabo" you're talking about is actually "sabou", and wouldn't be written in katakana either way.

Good catch with the Marines instead of Pirates, though =p
