Ballroom e Youkoso 1

Welcome to Ogasawara Dance Studio

+ posted by Eru13 as translation on Feb 13, 2013 01:40 | Go to Ballroom e Youkoso

-> RTS Page for Ballroom e Youkoso 1

This translation is free for anyone to use, the only conditions are to PM me before using it and to give me the proper credit while releasing. Just be prepared, this series has a lot of redraws...
Ballroom e Youkoso 1
//You might want to read this FAQ about my translations before using this.
//The title literally means "Welcome to the Ballroom", the subtitle for this series (maybe the official title in english) is "Sweep Over the Dance hall", alt. romanization for the japanese title is "Ballroom he youkoso"
//This translation was done using tankoubon raws
//If you wonder why I am translating this, well, long story made short, I love ballroom dancing and was searching for a manga about that, about a month after I started my search I saw the nominees for the Manga Taisho 2013 and well, a manga with Ballroom on its name can't be about anything else, so I felt fate calling for me and started searching frantically for raws.
//Finding raws proved quite difficult but I finally found them and I've got to say this looks good, I've yet to check out the later chapters but it should be good to be nominated for an award. I hope some good scanlation group picks this soon, it deserves some love.

Teacher: Don't get troubled choosing a school!
Thought: I want something
Thought: It can be just one thing...Something that gives me confidence,
Thought: "Something I like".

Teacher: For now just aim for a public school,
Teacher: It's not like you're going to start job hunting.
Thought: Something that I can proudly say I "like" it...
Teacher: Isn't there anything?
Teacher: Your dream for the future or something you want to do?
Teacher: Hm?
Tatara: ...Nah.
Thought: If there was then I could change.

Tatara(thinks): I think...
Teacher: Are you really thinking about your future!?
Tatara(thinks): ...?
Teacher: With your grades you could go to a good school in the city,
Teacher: You should choose something more reliable...

Tamaki: But Shizuku-chan is already better than some cheap pros around there,
Tamaki: When she turns 18 she can turn pro.
Tamaki: It seems she's going to study abroad next year though.
Kaname: Jeez, she's so cheeky.
Tatara(thinks): Eh?
Kaname: I mean, she's tense today...
Kaname: Is it her period?
Tamaki's sd: Hey
Tamaki: Don't say that!
Tatara(thinks): Study abroad...?

Kaname's sd: Haha...
Kaname: He might go home.
Tamaki: !?
Kaname: Since he's a beginner at most in 20 minutes.
Tamaki: Sengoku-kun!
Tamaki: What are you doing to our first new student in a while...?
Kaname: Shuddup.
Tamaki: Wha...
Kaname: Jeez, he said it too easily
Kaname: That after watching me dance he wants to be like me...
Kaname: Do I look that cheap?
SFX: crack
Tamaki: ...
Kaname(thinks): I've been taken too lightly.

Kaname(thinks): I can't laugh when a brat says he'll be a pro half in fun!
Tatara(thinks): A bigger
Tatara(thinks): Step...
Tatara: !
Tatara(thinks): Aaah
Tatara(thinks): ...
Tatara(thinks): Those movements are impossible for me...
Tatara(thinks): I'm tired.
Kaname: Then, you'll go home?
Tatara(thinks): I'm not tired, I'm not tired.
Tatara(thinks): Look, Sengoku-san did it so smoothly
Tatara(thinks): Like a pendulum...
Tatara's sd: Smoooooothly...

Tatara(thinks): The way he used his legs wasn't ordinary
Tatara(thinks): ---Or so it seemed...
Tatara(thinks): He lowered his hips
Tatara(thinks): Like this...
Tatara(thinks): !!
Tatara(thinks): This is an air chair!
SFX: step
Tatara(thinks): The start of a pendulum is low!
Tatara(thinks): While facing the body to the side
Tatara(thinks): You head to the peak of the pendulum---

Shizuku: Upsie daisy...
SFX: squeeze
SFX: tap
Shizuku(thinks): Hmm? I hear someone dancing...
Shizuku(thinks): Is it Sengoku-san...?
Shizuku: Good mor...

p65 //no dialog

Shizuku(thinks): Box...?
Shizuku(thinks): One of waltz' basic figures
Shizuku(thinks): "Three Step Natural Turn" //The japanese actually says "Three of natural turn", which makes little sense, my guess it's that it should be a three step followed by a natural turn
Shizuku(thinks): "Right"
Shizuku(thinks): "Left"
Shizuku(thinks): ---You make the left your axis like that...
Shizuku(thinks): And from the tiptoes
Shizuku(thinks): You rise
Tatara(thinks): Alright,
Tatara(thinks): That's the feeling!
Tatara(thinks): After stretching-
SFX: creak
SFX: creak
Shizuku(thinks): ---You lower.

Tatara: !!
Tatara: Hanaoka-sa...
Shizuku: Did Sengoku-san teach you
Shizuku: "Swing"?
Tatara: Sw...
Kaname: Hmmmm
Clock: Beep beep
Clock: Beep beep
Tatara: Swi...?
Shizuku: I think it's good that you make big movements.
Shizuku: But your rise and lower are...
Shizuku: Ah,
Shizuku: Stay like that.
Tatara: !

Shizuku: I'll do it together with you.
SFX: Thump
Shizuku: The way your swing is right now you suddenly lower your knees
SFX: shake
Text: Lower
SFX: bounce
Text: Rise
SFX: Shake
Text: Lower
Shizuku: So the difference with your rise makes your head bounce,
Shizuku: That's why...
Shizuku: !
Shizuku: Hey
Shizuku: Why is your hold loosing!?
Tatara: But...
Shizuku: Your back is bending!
Shizuku: Your waist is closing!
Tatara: She kicked me!!
Tatara: She just kicked me, right!?
Kaname: Yawn...
Kaname: Oh, Shizuku,
Kaname: You came...
Tatara: Hi, Sengoku-san!

Kaname: Wha...You.
Tatara: How am I? Is my box well done?
Kaname: Why are you here?
Kaname: Go home,
Kaname: Don't come.
Tatara: Eh
Kaname: !?
SFX: Whoosh
Kaname: Yo...
Tatara's sd: Oh
Kaname: The floor is slippery...
Kaname: Wait, what are you spreading around!?
Tatara: S-Sweat,
Tatara: Maybe...
Kaname: Sweat!?
Tatara: Ouch
Tatara: ...?

Kaname?: That's disgusting!
Kaname: This isn't the dimension of just imitating!!
SFX: Peel
Tatara: Ah, the shoes broke (cd: I'm sorry...)
Kaname: ...It can't be that you were doing the box all night...
Kaname: Look at those bags...
Tatara: Eh?
Tatara: Ah...

Tatara: Ah...
Tatara: It's already morning.
Kaname: You can tell with a glance, idiot!!
Tatara: Good m...
Kaname: Go home!
Kaname: Jeez, this meaningless muscle training...
Kaname: Stop, stop!!
Kaname: This is stupid!!
Tatara: !
Kaname: When I tell you "stop".
Tatara: That
Tatara: Means...
Tatara: Uh
Tatara: Puh

Kaname: ...
Kaname: That
Kaname: Was
Kaname: Cloooooose.
Kaname: I mean, the floor is...
Kaname: You've done it now!!
SFX: Yuuuck //vomit
Tatara: Haha...
Tatara: I'm sorry.
SFX: cough
Kaname(thinks): Jeez, what's with him?
Kaname(thinks): Did he really do it all this time until now...?
Kaname(thinks): Moreover, I saw him do a nice "swing" just now...
Kaname(thinks): I didn't teach him anything!
Kaname(thinks): This guy...
Shizuku: Puh...
Shizuku: Fufu...
Shizuku: All night? What's with that?
Shizuku: Box!?
Shizuku: Are you stupid?

Shizuku: Aaaaah,
Shizuku: So fun...
Shizuku: You threw up, Fujita-kun.
Tatara(thinks): "Fujita-kun"...
Kaname: ?
Tatara: Wh-
Tatara: What should I do next...
Kaname: Like I know!
Tatara(thinks): ---I
Tatara(thinks): Think I can change---
Kaname: You're really annoying!

For those curious about Jive, you can check out this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2zwREQvI4NU&list=PLKp3L8sDQMx-Ber44le-FeRt-07OrI3yF&index=1
around minute 40, the Jive block starts there, that's an international dancesport competition so I guess it should be illustrative for the readers of this manga XD

I will continue translating it, but I'm waiting for the group that will potentially scanlate this series to get HQ raws...

Those are the ones I used to make my TL (and read the whole series XD), unfortunately, it seems that the quality is too low, and since the series has a lot of redraws, unless you have better ones it's pretty impossible...
