Bokke-san 6

Masked Hiro

+ posted by Elkin as translation on Feb 13, 2009 00:33 | Go to Bokke-san

-> RTS Page for Bokke-san 6

It's a miracle! A manga with decent English?! What's the world come to?

Disclaimer: this was done running on 4 hours sleep, in a 6 hour marathon (I did do other stuff in between). So expect mistakes.


Blue for areas that require assistance
Black Japanese text means uncertainty.

* Hino

Bubble 11: It'z definitely ze fault of the Bokke, right...?! ^

Bubble 12: Geez...! ^
Sub-bubble: I hate it. I juz don't understand at all. ^
^ Meke

SFX: ooooo

Bubble 13: ---Juz what are we---
Sub-bubble: Juz what are the Bokke?!

Bubble 14: All righ', all righ'.

Bubble 15: No need to translate...
Sub-bubble: Let me show you something good.

SFX: kasshi... (stride...)

Apron: Ma[blocked]ba Library

[Page 08]

Bubble 1: Here we go.
Sub-bubble 1: First off, this petite frog's real form
Sub-bubble 2: Is the Yorozute-kawasu

Scroll: Yorozute-kawasu

SFX: para (flip)

Bubble 2: The pervert of the Bokke world

Bubble 3: ... Perv...?!

Bubble 4: Oh my~~

Bubble 5: A Bokke which can enter any mirror or mimicking image.
Sub-bubble: Uses his power for his own ends.
T/N: not quite sure 'duplicated image' is the right word. The meaning is more 'virtual image', or an image that mimics something, e.g. a photo.

Bubble 5: Own...!!

Bubble 6: Nice one~~

Bubble 7: But, but

Bubble 8: Why is it that you know my true form when I haven't shown my 'power'...?

Bubble 9: Your hand.

Bubble 10: Ah.

Sub-bubble: That's scary... Don't tell me... that's...?!

Bubble 4: Yes

Bubble 5: It's a Bokke...!! A guy who lose control over his 'power' and couldn't revert...!!

Text 1: ...!!

Text 2: Couldn't control his 'power'...?! And became a monster like this...?!

Text 3: ... No way...!!

Text 4: Like this...?! If I end up like this, I'd rather not use this so-called 'power'---

[Page 10]

Bubble 1: ----So I say, but here in Matsuroba

Bubble 2: You can't not use your 'power' and just cut yourself free with just that.

Bubble 3: Bokkes are one species of the '800,000 Gods', and the closest to youkai.

Bubble 4: They have a particularly troublesome characteristic

Bubble 5: And that is

Bubble 6: Their natural form is a 'human'...!!

Bubble 7: So having said that, 'whaaa're you trying to say?' you ask...
T/N: :/ he sure is long-winded

Bubble 8: Bokke can plough through the human trash

Bubble 9: If they feel like it, they can---

SFX: Zuzu... (Creep...)

Bubble 1: Make sudden attack on humans...!!

Apron: Marr[blocked]

Bubble 2: -------!!

Bubble 3: The most recent incidents

Bubble 4: Have made this clear, have they not?
T/N: Lit: 'have told you plenty about this', but it's a little too long to typeset :/

SFX: shin (point)

Bubble 5: Just think about what monsters will go on rampages from here on...?
T/N: liberal translation, because it sounds plain bad otherwise :/

Text 1: Those guys are going to start moving, won't they--...

Text 2: ---... Can't be...

SFX: gyu... (grip...)

Text 3: Then...!! No matter what we do, we'll get involved...?!

Text 4: But then that'll...!!

Bubble 6: But there's no need to worry, since it's Hino.
Sub-bubble: If it's someone like Nanpa, he'll finish them off---

[Page 12]

SFX: Pashan...!! (Shatter...!!)

Bubble 1: ?

Bubble 2: ...Wait.

Bubble 3: Why?

SFX: ooo

Bubble 4: suuu... (retract)

Bubble 5: biki (crackle)

SFX: oo

Bubble 6: Why'd you know about Nanpa?

Bubble 7: A week ago, he fought with Hiro.

Bubble 8: !

Bubble 9: He was together with a guy called Ring. Hiro defeated them.

Bubble 10: Bo- Bo-... Bokke...

Bubble 5: gyara (dangle?)

Bubble 6: Of course
Sub-bubble: You are the lowest class of Bokke

Bubble 7: rin (ring)

Bubble 8: ---In that case, I, too
Sub-bubble: Am just a low-class Bokke, not much different from you

Bubble 9: But Nanpa and Ring are

SFX: goo

Bubble 10: Top class, you know...!!

Bubble 11: ...Then, why
Sub-bubble: Are you even alive...?

SFX: oo

[Page 14]

Bubble 1: ... If...

Bubble 2: If zey'z such monsterz, zen why were zose two---?!

Text 1: .......

Bubble 3: I don't know either.

Bubble 4: Then, that Hanko might also be dangerous too---

Bubble 5: pipi

SFX: taa (flip)

Bubble 7: Oh yeah, look at this.

Bubble 8: You see, I went to a place like this with Hiro.

Bubble 9: What's this??

Bubble 10: A lot happened there, see~~

Bubble 11: Underground, there was this structure that seemed rather old-fashioned.

Bubble 12: The Hakon Bokke we met near the end? That kind of feel.

Text 2: Gee-- It's all so broken-down

Bubble 13: Oi!!

Bubble 14: !

Text 1: ---Honestly

Bubble 7: ...And it should be that place, but I don't know much about it.

Text 2: They actually went there, huh...

Bubble 8: Just, well, it seems kind of 'the Bokke's concealed hideout'-ish. I'll investigate it too...

Bubble 9: 'Ka--y
Sub-bubble: Thanks, Abel

Text 3: They're really something, them..!!

Bubble 10: Hey, Hino.

Bubble 11: !

Text 4: --Can't help it

Side-text: This Bokke... Smoke? Steam? This is bad!! Claws don't seem effective here!!

...The 6th Monster

Translator's notes:

Bokkes and their names' meanings:

A quick Google search suggests that the Bokke aren't directly lifted off mythology, unlike in Nurarihyon. It may be based on existing youkai/ninjutsu forms, but I'm no expert in either field.

Nekogami: Slumbering Fox God (Pronunciation can also mean Cat God)
Shouldn't be 'Cat God', given the fox-like mask and the kanji 'fox'.

Yorozute-kawasu: 10000-handed Frog


Meke: he adds a lot of 'su's at the end of his sentences, so I tried to carry that over. Sorry if the English ends up looking pretty darn weird. I suppose you could say it's a Dracula accent *l* Without the 'v's or the formality.

Abel: speaks with a foreign accent, but it's hard to convey it in English. We don't even know if he's from the US or UK, so I can't spice up his language much.
