The Girl in the Howling Shoals.
Somewhat better now, but there are still some points left that are rather unclear. Any kind of help would be appreciated.
The Book of Fantasia. Fairy Island Chapter. The Girl in the Howling Shoals.
Caption: Whatever dwells on this strange, solitary island?
Boy: ...A./A Sea God?
Isma: Sea God or not, it sinks ships and devours people./Which makes for a dreadful, abominable god.
Isidro: ...He/Hehe../That makes it all the more interesting, doesn't it?//Now I'm dying to know!!
Isma: Ah. Wait.
Isidro: I'm gonna look into that, I am!!
Puck: Camera to the front.
Sign: Insert water.
Isidro: Let's find out if there's any truth to that legend!!
Isma: You're gonna get yourself cursed.
Isidro: How do you wanna explore/if you're scared of some curse?!!
Puck's helmet: Fujioka Hiroshi-style.[tn: Japanese action-movies actor (1946- 20--). You can replace with "Chuck Norris-style" to better get the point across.]
Isma: Watch your step.
Isidro: *I'm bleeding from the heaaaad.*/THERE'S SOMETHING IN THERE./*We're in trouble big time.*
Isma: ... Dang it. Really hopeless.//Come./My place is not far. I'll treat you there.
Guy: This is uncanny. Somewhat fascinating, though.
Ponytail: This statue is quite unusual.
Shierke: This is the very old statue.../of a god from ancient times.
Guts: An ancient god.
Shierke: As your religious doctrine spread across the world, it was forgotten/and disappeared deep into the realm of the dead. But on the Fairy Island, the old traditions have been passed along.
Curls: A god, eh?/*Smells like fish.*/Compared to our God and His angels, it falls a league short in the grace and splendor department.
Iva: Octopus. It's an octopus-god.
Shierke: ........//I'm going to walk around this island for a little bit. You folks go ahead. Carry on to the inn.
Farnese (if memory serves): Master.//Isn't it dangerous to stay on your own?/There might be something on this island...
Shierke: That's precisely what I'm looking for.
Ponytail: Let one of our officers escort you then...
Shierke: You don't have to worry about me.
Shierke: Fear not. I am much safer here/than I'll ever be in town.
Ponytail: Is that alright? Letting a child run around on her own, I mean. [tn: Alternatives: "Is that alright? Letting that Boaz kid run around on his\her own, I mean." or "Is that alright? Nevermind the boy, can we let a kid run around on her own?" Pick whichever sounds likely and don't hesitate to modify it for greater coherence. By the time I get up to date with the manga and able to correct this myself, the next chapter will already be out, lol.]
Blond: I'm more worried about us having less fighting power at hand should anything happen.
Dude: What do you mean, anything? You saying we still haven't seen the end of it?!
Isidro: Pheeew. So warm./I'm mighty grateful.//That's some weird firewood. What is it?
Isma: Peat bog.//It's made out of grass that decays in the mud because of the cold./The kind of trees that'd be suitable for firewood doesn't grow on this island.
Puck: That's kinda spooky.
Isma: Come on. Let me see your wound.
Isidro: I'm fine. 'Tis nuthin' to worry about.
Puck: Treat it properly, or you'll end up with barnacles inside you.*shake*[tn: I don't vouch for the accuracy of that sentence.]
Isma: Wow. That's a pretty deep cut.//Stay put./*I can handle this. Just leave it to me.*
Puck: Stop one place from bleeding. Watch the blood gush from two other spots.
Isma: It's a salve made out of cooked seaweed. Pretty effective.
Isidro: Ah.//Thank you.
Puck: I'm Puck.
Isidro: Um. The name's Isidro.
Isma: I'm Isma./Nice to meet you.//Say. You guys gonna have to get going right away?
Isidro: 'S alright. We're leaving tomorrow...
Isma: Ri...! Right, then! You can stay for dinner!//And after that I wanna hear your stories! About your travels!/What it's like out there!
Isidro: That's fine by me...
Isma: COOL!!//Alright! You can start right now...! ...I mean, don't./Wait up! I'll go prepare the meal.../...So where's that pan again? There it is!
Isidro: That's one hasty, busy girl.
Puck: She kinda reminds me of someone.
Dude: Oh, God. Finally we can enjoy a good meal in peace. I couldn't get enough of anything down on that ship.//...That said
Dude: It's the only tavern-inn in the village so we don't have much of a choice, but it's still outlandish, and in fairly bad taste... And it smells like fish, too.
Ponytail: I like it. It's as if we were at the bottom of the sea. It's amusing, don't you think?
Bartender: Gentlemen. I'm sorry, but could you go inside, fetch some ingredients for me?
Guts: It's fine. I'll go.
Dude: Hey! To think we actually considered staying here for the night! The service stinks.
Shierke: Looks like the disruptive Od that conceals this island is centered around here.
Iva: Hey. Do you plan on getting in there? Wet and clammy doesn't sit well with me...
Shierke: Feel free to wait for me outside, Ivarella.
Iva: Alright! Let's get going! I'll be your lookout... !/Shierke. Over here...!
Shierke: This is...
Iva: Monkey's dagger...![tn: Or "Smartass' dagger...!" I can't do better than that without proper context.]
Shierke: Don't tell me... Isidro-san...!//?!
Shierke: That thing.../It was around the ghost ship.......!!//...Is it me or is it shrinking? It's still as creepy as ever, though.//But there's no mistaking it. It's the same kind of monster as the one we've met.
Iva: No way. Could they have been eaten by that thing?
Isma: THAT'S AAWWESOME!! And what, then?!/What happened?!!
Isidro: A-as I was saying...//I took advantage of the opening created when the arrow was shot to lunge at its chest! On top of which I slipped past its ax as it swung it down/and WHAM. I struck it on the side.
Puck: Your eyes are out of focus.
Isidro: I turned around to finish it with my magic dagger. One hit to the flank!/One massive Boss Troll, dead!
Isma: Wooooow. That's amazing.../...Hey. Was that for real...?
Isidro: Alright! Since you're doubting me!/I guess it's about time to let you see some proof!//...WHAT THE HELL?! I only got the scabbard?!/Oh, crap. Did I drop the thing somewhere?!//Wai-wait a minute!/I wasn't just boasting...!
Puck: Just embellished things a little bit.
Isma: I believe you.//You have a fairy following you! So it's not weird at all to imagine you've had all these adventures!/I believe you! It's really an awesome world, out there.
Shierke: Is this what you're looking for?
Puck: What kind of seaweed are you?
Shierke: This is a rare item you ought to take care of. Don't go misplacing it.
Isidro: Yes ma'am.//AAARGH. I'M BURNING.//Wh-what's going on? What happened?/You've always been scary, but now it's much worse!!
Puck: It's all his fault!
Shierke: I've had a very bad time, thanks to somebody I won't name!
Iva: That's right! We've been through hell because of some boobies I won't name![tn: Originally it's supposed to be a pun on the words "unpleasant experience" and "erotic sight". They sound kinda similar in Japanese.]
Shierke: AH/Oh no.
Isma: You're friends of Isidro's, right?/Judging from your appearance, you've been showered by the waves, like him?/Come warm yourselves up. I don't mind at all!
Shierke: (So that was it!)/...Thanks a lot.
Iva: Wait a minute. What's going on? We're on land now, yet you look like a fish from the deeps!
Caption: Just what is that Od Shierke perceives around Isma?
Shierke: She is...
