Aaand we're done with Volume 1. Now we can finally get some scanlations done I guess. Sorry that took so long. I've got way too much shit to do. Anyhow, V2 comes out in like 3 weeks. I'll try to do it a bit sooner after it comes out then. I'm liking this story. It gets better as the characters develop. This volume is really only a sort of "opening act" to grab reader's attention.
[Innocent 8 Translation by Kewl0210]
Title: n°8 The Innocent Scaffold
Narration: When the Titan, Atlas, was defeated in his battle with Zeus,
he was condemned to hold up the heavens at the edge of the world.
Title: n°8 The Innocent Scaffold
Narration: The first cervical vertebra that supports the skull
was named Atlas, after the Titan-----
Sign: Paris Government Office Building
Place de Gr蔬e
Danielson: Hm. This room gives us quite a good view.
You can see the scaffold quite well from here, De Chartois.
Chartois: Thank you very much.
You weren't able to enjoy the party at my house a few days ago quite enough, so please enjoy today to your heart's content.
Danielson: ----...But this is your son, isn't it? ......Are you all right with this?
Chartois: Peh. He was born in the slums after all.
I'm not even sure if he's really my son......
I just took him in because I thought he might be useful to our army as he could speak English.
But it seems his true worth was foiling that makeshift trick of those Navy men.
His little sister that has now almost reached the age of 12 is arranged to be wed to Earl Blanc Vie.
They threatened to break it off if I said anything unnecessary, so I stayed quiet in court as well.
Someone: He's here!
You blasphemous heretic!!
We will send you to hell through Sanson's Sword!!
[He's not as pretty as I remember him.]
Guy: Please lower your hands, sir.
Lord Sanson, we've just finished preparing the scaffold.
just think of them as dolls, things-----
AMD: This brings back such memories...
My son Batist
would practice on this doll I made quite a bit.
Now, Charles, the real thing will be tomorrow.
Give it a try.
CJB: Sweep Atlas off his feet.
Atlas---- In other words, unless you slice below the flat ant loosely connected spot at the bottom of the first cervical vertebra, the criminal will undergo unneeded suffering.
AMD: Are you listening, Charles?!!
Honestly, this is deplorable!!
AMD: Do you not understand?
Chartois knows you're a youngster that has never set foot on a scaffold, he's making fun of you.
And now that your father is not in the best of health,
if you, as the next head of the family, act in a feckless manner, then the entire Sanson Family of 50 people will be turned adrift!!
But there is no need to worry.
Your objective is a noble. He will not struggle against an honorable decapitation.
As if dancing the waltz step,
you need only cut the neck that is presented to you.
AMD: Do not think anything.
Shut your mind.
Guys: Hey, don't push!!!
Hey, candy vendor!
Could I have one for a child?!
No, I'm sorry. The second floor is fool. Try somewhere else.
[You can tell a lot of these are copies and pasted.]
Charles: They're all things.
Things do not feel pain or suffering-----...
Jean: My treasure,
my little sister, Mary.
She'll be a duchess soon.
I only wish for her happiness...
Bottom: Innocent (1) (End)
[I guess the statue thing means he missed by a bit?]
[Something in French. Uh... "To Be Continued in The Volume 2" I guess. Just leave it.]
[See you in September.]
[Credits. Used a book for reference.]
