Only for use by Mangatopia.
See? Now it's getting down to the easy barely-needs-to-say-anything of Kokou no Hito.
[Innocent 3 Translation by Kewl0210]
The long sword for use in executions passed down through the Sanson family.
There are three holes located at the pointe (the tip).
If you swing it vertically downwards, it will not sing.
But if the blade is even a bit on its side, the sword will sing as the criminal's screams echo......
Title: n°3 Sword of the People
[You'll just have to imagine it singing.]
Someone: Welcome back, Charles-Henri.
AMD: Is your sword practice progressing well?
Did you know that my younger brother, Chales Sanson the 2nd,
had his first job at age 18?
He got shaken up, and even after swinging down the sword five, six times, he could not cut off the woman convict's head.
That weak spirit became the talk of all of Paris.
Please keep that in mind, Charles...
AMD: A person's head
is surprisingly hard to separate from the torso.
Charles: I no longer have my father
or Father Grisel...
Charles: All I have left to rely on is this sword.
the only way I can live is on my own...
Charles: My father, Chales Sanson's first job was in June of 1699----
Paris was swelteringly hot that day.
When the father confessor on the execution stand started to speak
dark clouds gathered in the sky, thunder rang out, and a light drizzle started to come down.
The unlucky Madame Tyche, a woman that had plotted the murder of her unfaithful husband, was hit by the rain and her clothes stuck to her body
displaying her beautiful curves, and making her appear as if completely nude----
[Oh my god, it's that person.]
[And for some reason there's a guy with a flute in the middle.]
Charles: I'm sorry. I'm sorry...
I'm begging you, don't cry anymore...!!!
[This guy doesn't like to wear a shirt.]
[I fully believe that this scene is here entirely to establish that this character is male.]
Guy: A sad flute...
[There's no gay subtext in this series. It's all text.]
CJB: Very soon it will be Summer Solstice...
And with it, the fire festival of St John's Eve...
CJB: Mother, I've received an official request from Earl Chartois.
Charles will be coming with me for it, as his first job.
