-> RTS Page for Enigma 56
Ok, so, this came out first in December. Then the volume came out last month (Almost 2 months now). It got delayed because it's long as hell so I put it off a while.
I'm gonna be basing this translation off the volume, since it's been out for a while now. They're the same, but the volume also has an epilogue. The popularity poll results were only in the Jump NEXT issue, so I'll put that in as well.
The volumes had lots of the little sketches with a little gag of what the characters did between chapters like the one I have on page 2. They also had profiles and little 2-3 page extras at the ends. In case anybody wants to scanlate those so the series is done in high quality, Enigma had 7 volumes, let me know and I'll translate the extras, I have all the books (But you'll have to scan them if you want to do them. I have copies of all the issues' color pages as well, I'll send you those if you want). After this they also have a one-shot that Kenji-sensei did in 2006 that used a few concepts that eventually became part of enigma.

Suuki: I suppose sometimes you can celebrate without being cursed.
Arrow: 2nd [Arrow pointing to Suuki]
Arrow: 3nd [Arrow pointing to Kurisu]
Kurisu: What an honor. How about a toast?
Kirio: The third wish was
"For everyone's memories
Kirio: A cold autumn rain and a gloomy wind------
Among this darkness, his memories lay buried-----
Maid: Welcome to the Yuuyami Festival!
Kirio: -----That's odd.
Kurisu: There's a thunderstorm warning for after noon, huh......?
Matsurigi: Move the refreshment booth to the hallway.
Yumikawa: How unfortunate that it would be raining today.
Hasekura: Yoshida-sensei, we were gonna have a baseball club event, and----
Kijima: Hey, why such a sullen face?
You finally made it to the school festival. Enjoy yourself.
Father is coming, too. We can meet up later!
Kijima: Hey, make sure you add a "sensei" to that when we're in school!
Ah, well I guess you are my little brother after all, Kirio.
Kirio: ------Don't touch me, prissy!
Just call me Imizuka like before!
Kijima: Before...? What're you talking about?
Kirio: -----It seems they really were all lost.
Everyone except me lost their memories of that side...! ["That side" in italics.]
He wished that once he escaped from the other side, for their memories to disappear.
But the result... was I alone was left without my memories erased.
Why...? Based on the memories I have, the wish should have been efective.
Was there some condition...?
Suuki: Shit... And the seven wonders display is still only half-done...
Where'd Haiba Sumio go...?
SFX: BUH BUH...
Kirio: Yes...... The other unsolved mystery is
I don't know where he is.
I've got a bad feeling about it... Why would he not be here just today, the day I came?
Maybe this is another condition for returning our memories?
Kirio: I'm taking on destiny "alone".......
Like how I was trapped in that cold darkness long ago----
-----Fine, then. In the end, he listened to my wish.
This time it's my turn---- He chose me as a guide to the memories.
I'll take everything back.
Sumi, the memories, everything...!!
...I'm meeting someone. Don't come with me.
Kijima: Oh! A friend?
Kirio: ...No, shut up.
SFX: KONO KONO
Takemaru: Whadda you want? What is this...
Matsurigi: The student council has work to do... Is this urgent?
Kurisu: Is he... um, a friend of yours?
Hiina: Eh... no....
SFX: ZAWA ZAWA (Talking)
Kirio: So, I've assembled all of the people from that day together...
They're they key to regaining the memories... but
----So them seeing each others faces doesn't do it either?
Are these the bonds you all talk so much about?
The relationship you formed on that side confronting life and death,
you even forgot the man that was in the core of it all...?
Kurisu: ...? Who is that?
Suuki: ...Haiba Sumio is a friend of mine since childhood, but... Who're you...?
Kirio: ------A friend of his from middle school.
Suuki: ...You liar. I've never met you.
Matsurigi: ...? Is he lying?
Kirio: ...As I thought, they won't just blindly accept it.
And on top of that, these people hate me... I suppose it's to be expected.
...So after all that, you were just pretending to be good friends?
Takemaru: You bastard... Would you shut up and listen to us?
Kirio: Relax... As soon as my business is over, I'll disappear.
Because I cannot be in a place like this. ["Cannot be in a place like this" in italics.]
He is everything.
For his sake, remember your "bonds"!!
Takemaru: ...I don't get this guy.
Aru: Sorry... It's getting late.
...Are you okay? You seem kind of upset.
Shigeru: I don't really understand what's going on, but cheer up.
I'll do anything I can to help!
Shigeru: -----For some reason, I can't just leave you here.
I feel like if I went away from you, I'd regret it again------- ["Again" in italics.]
Kirio: Come here!
People: Hey, are you okay?
A freakin' pipe fell from the ceiling...
SFX: ZAWA ZAWA (Talking)
SFX: GATA GATA
Shigeru: Kushi... Zashi...
The dining hall...
Shigeru: Help... me...
Kirio: Shigeru... Could it be...?!
Shigeru: Ki... Kirio!!
Shigeru: H... How could I do something like this...!
To forget who you are, Kirio... How could that ever happen?!
Shigeru: Hey, where's Sumio...?
Why isn't Sumio here?!
Kirio: ...Calm down, Shigeru.
There is a hint in the restoration of your memories... What happened?
Shigeru: ...The e-test... When that pipe fell, I saw the time from when we were going after the 6th password.
In the dining hall covered with spears, Sumio and I were stabbed...
Kirio: The one you all worked together in to clear?
But that should have been a success... Nothing happened to you...
I think I've... heard this before...?!
Kirio...! Come with me.
Kirio: -----It's odd. All that's back is Shigeru,
but I feel like the darkness has thinned somewhat----
SFX: ZAWA ZAWA
Kirio: The 1st rumor... "The Stabbed Students"...
Shigeru: Sorry, um----
Dad: Look, Shimei! It's those seven wonders!
Shimei: Woah... These really take me back Haiba.
Kidou: Evidence tying into Yuuyami City's historical background, eh...? Truly interesting!
Suuki: Thanks... Professor...
Gidou: I like you , Suuki. If you're interested, feel free to stop by my laboratory.
You can be my assistant instead of these guys.
Shimeui: How could you be so cruel, sensei!
Dad: Quit while you're ahead, Suuki-kun. Or you'll be made into Gidou-sensei's servent...
Kirio: ...What're you old idiots doing?
Gidou: Oh, there's Kiri!
Gidou: Daddy's been looking for ya. Where's Yuu?
Shimei (handwritten): So you're Kiri-bou, huh?
Suuki: Geh... You're such a liar.
Kirio: Hey bearded giant. Where's your son?
Dad: Sumio...? I haven't seen him since he left the house, but...
Shigeru: Hey, Suuki-kun, please...!
Tell us about this school's seven wonders!
Suuki: Huh...? Aren't you the one from before...?
Are you interested in them, miss?
Yuuyami High School's Seven Wonders... There are seven place within the school where seven ghosts will appear before you.
There's a rumor that if you meet those seven people, "something forgotten" will come back to you in the gymnasium.
But this is unconfirmed, no one's been able to clarify it... I suppose it's because if someone did meet a ghost, there'd be quite a bit of confusion.
Kirio: "Something forgotten" will
Shigeru: Um... Are there any rumors that one of those places is the cafeteria?!
What do you say, Suuki?
Suuki: ...There is. The first rumor "The Stabbed Students".
As the story goes, there were two students eating lunch when iron pipes fell from the ceiling, killing them...
Shigeru: Stabbed... Two students...
Was what I saw before... a ghost Sumio and me...?! ["ghost" in italics.]
Kirio: The ghosts of the seven wonders are the Shigeru and the others of the other side----- If we take this as fact,
if we uncover the other seven wonders, we should restore everyone's memories!
Shigeru: Su... Suuki-kun, please help us!
We need you to show us around other Seven Wonders!
I... have something important I forgot!
I want to see Sumio!
Shimei: Doing field work is integral, Kei-bou.
Suuki: ...All right.
I've got a bone to pick with that loafer as well...!
I'll tell you the seven wonders!
----The 2nd Rumor "The Drowned Body of the Shower Room"
When a female student was bathing, a pipe broke and she drowned----
Mao: Hey, Hiina. Who was that guy in the gakuran before?
Hiina: It seems he had mistook me for someone else. I wonder if he's all right...
Mao: Who cares! You can't give boys an inch.
It was probably just an excuse to invite you there. The first year brats have lurking around this afternoon.
Hiina: First year students...?
Mao: Hey, hey, it's all right. Mao-chan is here to protect you!
SFX: GYUH BASHA
Mao: Ah... Sorry!
Hiina: It's okay. Could you go back ahead of me?
Sign: Shower Room
First year boys, huh...?
SFX: GOBO GOBO
Where is that person going...?!
SFX: GOBO GOBOH
Hiina: No... Someone-----
SFX: PICHON HAH
Hiina: I... Imizuka...
Shigeru: Hiina-senpai! You remembered, didn't you?!
Kirio: ...It's the stage of the second password. As I thought, you guys are on that side...!
Shigeru: Senpai... I met my own ghost as well!
Hiina: That's probably why I got my memories back from that side!
At the end of the seven wonders, "something forgotten" comes back...!
If all of us remember, we may get to see the actual Sumio along with our memories of him!
Suuki-san... the next rumor.
Suuki: ...Are you okay?
Hiina: ...I'm fine.
More importantly, Haiba-san...!!
Suuki: ...Okay. The Third rumor, "The Disappearing Student".
At the mirror in the boy's bathroom of the club building, he saw the version of himself reflected in the mirror disappear without a trace...
Guy: Wh... What is this...?
It... It's disappearing...?!
Guy: Wh-Wh... What's going...
Guy: ...He is no longer here... ["He" in italics]
I hate it... I want to disappear-----
Moto: ...This is
This is a talent!
Hiina: Are you all right, Hasekura-san?!
Moto: I-Imizuka...? Kujouin-san...?!
That's right... You remembered?!
Kirio: Fraidy cat... Don't forget people who heavily relied on you.
Hasekura: You're right... How could I...!!
Sumio... Where's Sumio?!
Sign: Incineration Room
Kurisu: Matsurigi...! I'm really apprehensive.
Matsurigi: You, too, Kurisu...?! It's what that boy was saying before, right?
Kurisu... I've been feeling a sense of unease every day for a while now!
Kurisu: I know what you mean...!
Even though it's a festival today... For some reason I can't enjoy myself at all...!
Moto: -----So? What's the 4th rumor?!
Suuki: The 4th rumor... "The Incinerator Student". While being bullied, a certain student was locked in the incinerator and burned to death...
Suuki: And the 5th rumor... "The Disappeared Murderer". The person who burned the student to death disappeared from inside the school-----
Matsurigi: That bastard
he deserted me...!!
SFX: GERA GERA GERA (Crackling)
Kurisu: ...Heh. What a disgrace!
Kurisu: If he were here...
nothing like this would have ever happened to us...!!
SFX: GERA GERA
Sumio: President, Kurisu-----
Get yourselves together!!
Moto: Matsurigi-san! Kurisu-san!!
Are you okay?!
Kurisu: Kirio... You, too...?!
Kirio: It would seem... you've remembered. Little honor students.
Matsurigi: ...Sorry, Imizuka.
Senpai... Let's go!!
Kurisu: Yeah... We've got to find Sumio!
Suuki: ----The 6th rumor. "The Dismembered Corpse on the Roof". It's the story of a student whose arms and legs were ripped off as a resulting of the impact from a fall----
SFX: BASHA BASHA
SFX: BASHA BASHA
Who's that, in all this rain...?
Kijima: What's wrong? You're getting wet... Do you know that student?
Aru: I... I don't know...
Aru: But... For some reason...
M... My body isn't moving properly-----
SFX: GASH GASHI GASHIH
Aru: ...He is down there.
If you go right from here you can meet him right away...
Aru: No... No...!
It's thanks to that person that I got spirited... I got this healthy and spirited...!
Aru: I want to see you...
Kijima: Watch out, Mizusawa!!
Aru: Ki... Kijima-sensei...!!
Kijima: Eh... Huh...? Why do I know your name...?
People: Mizusawa, are you all right?!!
Aru: G... Guys...?!
Kirio: So you stopped him...? Pretty good, Kijima...
Just one more...!
Just one more until Sumi!
Kurisu: All that's left is Takemaru-kun!
Matsurigi: Sudou... That means---
Aru: Kijima-sensei! Is Take-kun in the former school building?!
Are you friends with Sudou? I think he's probably fooling around there, but-----
Suuki: The former school building...!!
Takemaru: ------Hey, wait!
Who is that guy...?!
It's like he's been hanging around all the places I am!
Takemaru: that guy...
Where is he...?
SFX: Zu... Zuru...
Takemaru: Where's the exit...?! I have a feeling that something like this happened before.
We were looking for the exit and----- ...We?!
Sumio: It's here...
Don't try to run away!!
Suuki: The last rumor... "The Maze of the Former School Building"
It's a story about a male student who couldn't get out of the former school building and went mad...
Takemaru: Imizuka... You guys...
Aru: You remembered! You contrarian...!
Shigeru: We did it, Kirio!
SFX: ZAWA ZAWA
Kirio: Astounding... All of them got back those days for Sumi's sake.
So these are their bonds...?!
-----Now we've done all seven!
We've uncovered the seven wonders.
SFX: GARA GARA FUH
People: ---Attention all students. There has been a blackout due to a bolt of lightening.
Please follow the instructions of the teachers and gather in the entrance hall.
Kijima: These memories...?!
SFX: GARA GARA
Suuki: Haiba Sumio...!!
Gidou: ----This is
Shimei: Ah.. Aah...
Shimei: W... What have I done...
To Sensei and Haiba... and to those kids...!
Dad: You're wrong, Shimei... It wasn't your fault, it was ours!
Shimei: Sensei.. Haiba...!!
Gidou: ...Well, it looks like we're a pretty hopeless bunch of adults.
But rest easy. I'll tell you how to solve everything!
Gidou: We apologize to them!
Come, my assistants!!
Kirio: Sumi... All that's left is you.
Now hurry and get out here!!
Takemaru: Dammit. It's so dark I can't see anything.
Hiina: He's not replying, does that mean that...?!
Shigeru: No.. That can't be...!!
Sumio: ......The rain stopped.
I've been waiting...!!
Sumio: Yo, everybody!!
What's with you guys?
Sumio: Heeey. Why so cold?
Do you still not remember who I am?
SFX: PON PON
You came back!!
Takemaru: What the hell were you doing?!
Suuki: You got everyone worked all up... I'm gonna curse you...!
Sumio: W-Wait, I'm sorry!
I just went around to the seven wonders alone-----
in order to get back "something I'd forgotten"!
What do you mean?
Sumio: ...Ever since I met Kiri on that embankment
I've been investigating strange senses in this world...
And today---- I witnessed an accident that almost befell Shigeru.
I also saw my own ghost, and my memories came back to me.
Shigeru: ----That time?! Well I do remember there being a ghost of Sumio, too, but...
Matsurigi: Before we completed the seven wonders, you received the memories you had lost?!
Moto: Then... Why didn't you show up along the way?!
Sumio: ...I wanted to meet with all of you guys... But I thought it was my duty to just believe and wait.
This is his test... He had to get it back on his own. ["Him" in italics.]
The one who had always had "something forgotten" was him...! ["Him" in italics.]
Isn't that right,
Kijima: Imizuka...? But he already had his memories-----
Sumio: ....He forgot one thing.
Kiri, after this, don't disappear from this city.
Sumio: Here, Kiri is a maverick that had his memories from the beginning.
Sumio: An example of that is the seven wonders. You sensed your mission, and tried to bear the whole burden so no one else would get mixed up in it.
That very thought is proof that you forgot your promise!
You really shouldn't do that!
That's what I forgot...?
Sumio: You uncovered the seven wonders... So you should be able to remember now.
Remember, a long time ago, when said that when we became high school students we were going to meet again here again----
Kijima: Imizuka... Are you going?!
Gidou: Daddy and Yuu won't allow it!
Hiina: You can't Imizuka-san!
Moto: I mean... It was thanks to you that all of us...!
Aru: Don't go, Kiri-kun!
Takemaru: Hmph... Don't run away.
Suuki: Yeah. That'd be no excuse...
Matsurigi: A lot happened to you, but...
Kurisu: We'd like to say something first.
Shigeru: We're fine with it!
This is the place you belong!
[No text here]
Bottom:  True End (End)
Mom: Ah, there you are!
Guy: Sorry we're late, Kijima-san!
Kijima: Oh, Matarai-kun!
Sumio: You came, old lady!
Gidou: It's been quite a while, miss Mina.
Shimei: You're as beautiful as ever. Man, I wanna get married soon...
Sumio: Hm? You know them?
Mina (Handwritten): Oh, come now...
Dad: Of course. We all met when I was a student here.
Shimei: We were in that position, too.
How'd you meet?
Mina: Oh, Sumio, do you want to know?
Mina: It was the school festival of our third year...
Sign: Occult Research Club
Shimei: Big trouble, Haiba!
Shimei: A girl's in a tussle with a delinquent... What do we do?!
Dad: Huh? That's pretty tame, actually.
Gidou: Hey, servents! Are you abandoning your post?
Dad: Gidou-sensei! Folklore has to do with people, doesn't it?!
Gidou: ...! It is an odd story...
Why would a delinquent get violent...? Was it caused by his living environment...? Or perhaps he is possessed by an evil spirit that lives here.
Gidou: All right assistants, time for field work!
Both: Yes, Sensei!
Mina: And so they all saved me.
Sumio: Just what I'd expect of my old man!
Kirio: That's just stupid. I can hardly listen.
Mina: And that was our fated meeting.
Shimei: Eh? Huh? What's wrong, Haiba?
Dad: And so, we headed to a small church.
Shimei: Ah, hey!
Dad: Father, we'd like to take marriage vows!
Sumio: Awesome, old man...!
Dad: I... I guess so...
Gidou: But it was the most interesting wedding I'd ever been to.
There were only four people there, but everyone truly wished them well from the bottom of their hearts.
Dad: It caused a bunch of problems, but I don't regret it.
Mina: Love is the best!
Shigeru: How beautiful!
Sumio: I see...
I've gotta find somebody soon, too!
Do you not remember from before you got your memories back?
To me, Sumio, you----
Hiina: Hey, Haiba-san...
Someone: We were talking about how whoever loses this game has to treat everyone to something from the food cart...
Kurisu: And then Kirio-kun...
SFX: ZAWA ZAWA (Talking)
Kirio: How about the king (and pig) game?
Takemaru: No way I'm doin' that!
Suuki: That so dull... We're playing curse shiritori, of course.
Moto: Why is you're so scary?!
Kirio: What's so bad about it? We used to do it to kill time in my cell, right?
Kijima: You always played the king roll!
Aru: Sounds fun. Tell me how it goes, Sensei!
Sumio: Uh, how about not, okay, Aru?!
Shimei: Things sure got exciting with Sumi-bou here.
Gidou: ...I see.
-----He's a bit slow. Could I borrow your son to go for a little walk?
Gidou: Hey, Haiba 2. Come with me for a bit.
Kirio: What do you think you're doing, you stupid old man?!
Sumio: -----This is
Sumio: Ah... Is this where you're lodging?
Gidou: There's a graveyard on the hill behind it. We're going there.
Kirio: Graveyard? You're going to visit a grave?
SFX: KOH KOH
Gidou: Haiba 2... On the other side, I failed to deal with the skull. ["the other side" italics]
To take responsibility for that, I am taking care of this grave.
Below this stone is the final secret room----
I am protecting a lovely lady's paradise.
Grave: (Unreadable) Family Grave
Kirio: Paradise? Whose grave are you saying it is?
Shigeru: And this place... is similar to a place I saw in a prediction.
Gidou: This place should ring a bell with you, Haiba 2.
On that side you met that person. ["that side" in italics.]
Sumio: ......So that person
Gidou: It was a peaceful death.
With his beloved wife.
When I was a child, I met those two when they were alive.
During their lifetime as well as after their death, they walked harmoniously together.
Well, as long as the two are together, there's nothing bad.
Sumio: ...I see.
Gidou: So, Haiba 2? Why do you think the skull chose you as the person to end it?
Kirio: Do you know, old man?
Gidou: No one knows for sure, but we can make an educated guess.
Gidou: Someone charming like you who doesn't know the other person's history very well,
is also an idiot can still have passion for them.
----On the other hand, the skull is a tool that can be used to grant any wish.
It symbolizes the desires of this world.
It is something that Tyrants that cause others unhappiness and go only after their own happiness----
and even cause wars where is blood to be shed to obtain.
threw that away.
Passion stronger than desire.
There is no more magnificent idiot than this.
Gidou: They probably thought that you would be able
to get back the passion that they lost.
Sumio: I'm nothing like that.
Where'd you go?!
Sumio: Yes. It's thanks to everyone
that I was able to make it here.
Mina: We're about to head home!
Sumi, Kiri, let's go!
Sumio: See you later.
