Ok, finally on to this one! We now start Part 2! Woo. I'm hoping the scanlation of this volume goes a bit more smoothly than the last one, and it should according to what I've been told. I'm gonna try to get the translations done fairly quickly. Marie-Joseph is best girl. She'll torture you to death whenever ya want.

Back Cover:
They both stand against and carry their own power of the state... With the help of his second sister, Marie-Joseph, Charles was able to avoid a crisis in Damiens' execution. But their grandmother, Mathe has remonstrated Marie for standing on the execution platform by branding her with the family crest. Charles rescued her and said 'The new era belongs to us'-----. The two Sansons are finally drawing close to the Palace of Versailles. We now enter the new chapter, the 'Blood Red Versailles" arc-----!!

Author Flap:
Truth is
not something to be said with a loud voice,
nor is it something to be thrown into an era of social networks...

A glistening instant of truth between two eyes staring at one another is something that can only be ladled out with instinct------.

Heading: Historie jusqu'a present.
(The story leading to the present)
To bring attention to the wretched state the people of France are in where they 'cannot even eat bread', the farmer Damiens has pointed a blade at the king. That fact reached only Charles and his beloved son Jack, and Damiens was executed by Écartèlement for betraying his king. Charles believed along with Damiens that they would someday reach an "ideal" future and sought to execute him with all the mercy in his soul.
Charles is an executioner who performs his duties with the knowledge and experience of a doctor. But due to his uncle Nicolas's expectations, he switched out strong horses for workhorses causing the execution to come to a halt. Nicolas aimed to extend the length of the convict's suffering to display the power of the king. Charles shuddered at Nicolas's assertion. But just as Nicolas said, the crowd went wild with enthusiasm. Charles realized how they were part of a power structure with the king at the top and no way to oppose him. All Charles could do was to try to release the convict from his pain as soon as possible... With the execution not going well, the Sanson family second daughter, Marie-Joseph, looked upon the convict with his limbs being pulled by four horses with sparkles in her eyes. Marie shook off all restraints and stepped on top of the execution platform. With the execution on the verge of catastrophe, Charles took Marie's advice and performed the execution.
Like the execution was an event from a transient dream, the feeling of emptiness from after a big show and an air of questioning floated about the people. The person executed was poor just like us. This was a show for those lofty nobles. A cruel warning... The consciousness of the strain between the powerful and the weak certainly began the bud that day. And Charles could only offer a prayer to his comrade in seeking an "ideal" future-------.
A few days later, having accomplished their task, still had problems remaining. That was what their grandmother Marthe said,'"Punishment" to the 2nd daughter Marie for standing on the execution platform.' Marthe burned the family crest onto Marie's chest. Hearing screams from the torture chamber, Charles came running to save her. Charles, brandishing a sword, declared 'The new era belongs to us.' Charles held Marie tightly and vowed to open a path to the future with their own hands.
And 5 years later, a grown Mary could be seen wielding precise sword techniques...!! Her job is now Executioner of the Versailles Imperial Court, 'Prevote De l'Hotel'... These two members of the Sanson family, the older brother, Charles-Heri and the little sister Marie-Joseph have been drawn to the Versailles palace. This story of revolution now enters a new chapter-------!!!

he has yet to enter the war!!!
Griffin: So he will not listen to the orders of someone of the same rank....?
How could he do such a complacent thing on a battlefield...
this is not Versailles...!!!
Guy: It is regrettable...
If we return to Paris, I doubt I can avoid legal action...
