Bokke-san Chapter 1

Huge thanks to Momodaisuki for the corrections.

Sorry for the late release. It wouldn have been much earlier except I had about 3
pages left and if I left any later I would have been late to work and get scolded.

Here is the first chapter of Bokke-san. I'll be translating this for the next few
chapters until January at least. Please enjoy Nishi Yoshiyuki-sensei's new series.

To scanlators, a / marks a merged bubble. Anyone is free to use this translation.

Page 17

-Huhuhu, now I'll be taking your allowances.
-Needing me to do this to cover her weak points. / It's the worst.

-Everyday and to everyone you never say a word.
-I'll give that away to everyone in class~~
-Supernatural power boy <3
-It's the lowest
-Just kidding. It's a secret between us two <3

Page 19

-But I understand that "supernatural power"
-It's amazingly tempered
-*gorogoro* (TN-rolling sound)
-No way
-*Kon*(TN-hitting sound)
-But it's different

Page 20

-I don't understand it well but
-The blood in my body
-Can only be called "different"
-Even though
-such a thing is good
-Okay, okay, then... / there is a 30 pin difference which means
-9,000 yen~~
-(handwritten)so pathetic
-Hey, hey Hino.
-You get ha-

Page 21

-(handwritten)Lets go
-I can't be a normal guy

Page 22

-(handwritten)Right / Left
-Kira kira
-I thought if I did this I would find him.
-(handwritten)What is that person doing?

-(handwritten)Aren't you glad it was just egg, Ihihihi
-So noisy~ who were those guys.
-Hino is a mouthless character they say?

Page 25

-You don't have to be a mouthless character, umm, oh yeah.
-Hooka said it, you're a guy with a la-la lifes..tyle.
-Uwaa, you laughed. How rare!
(handwritten)English average 13 marks
-Let me take a photo
-Mama, I'm scared
-A murder!?
-I still don't understand.

Page 26

-The time of death was most likely at 11.45.
-Death was due to being severed in half and blood loss. (TN-I think it more to do with being severed in half than the blood loss but it said blood loss in the japanese so...)
-What the hell...!! How was this done.
-It seems like she was torn.

Page 27

-Inspector Yano, please excuse us for being late.
-Why are they revealing that...!?
-Your opponents were a highschool boy and girl, however you lost.
-That's all there is, the other evidence has been erased.
-Nothing else.
-What...are you saying...?

Page 28

-Could it be...!!
-No / we are confused as well.
-There are only the scars on the victims.
-One of the criminal's fingerprints. Some dust.
-No evidence of a struggle.
-N..no, no, impossible!! There should definitely be something revealed!!
-The method used to kill doesn't seem to obey the laws of physics. / What kind of weapon could they have used to do this...
-A person...
-A human...
-It looks like they've been wrung out like a wet rag...thats... / just not possible.
-What if it wasn't a human?

Page 29

-What is this person talking about...
-Ah... / a bear...you mean?
-An artful kill / just like...the work of the gods.
-Wa...!! What are you saying Yano-san!?
-It was the work of a "Bokke".

Page 30

-Deep in the forest that covers Matsuroba Town
-Until the Edo period there lived member's of the god's family / "Bokke".
-One theory is that the many ninjutsu of ninja,
-probably come from the Bokke of folklore.
-Hee...Kani-san, why do you know that
-Daibutsu...you should love your town more.
-I say that but, even the elderly of this neighbourhood don't know about something that fishy.
-Don't say something to ruin Yano-san's fantasy or it will cause a scene.
-This town is cursed...
-What is he talking about again...

Page 31

-What's with my foot...

Page 32

-She's still alive!!!
-Bring the first aid quickly!!
-That's impossible / even though there was no pulse
-Move quietly.
-What are you saying?

Page 33

-don't let
-get her...
-Wh / what was that...?
-She clearly... / said "Bokke"
-Do you know who the daughter's nursery is?
-Uh, / yes.
-We'll contact them right now.
-She didn't arrive today...

Page 34

-At 2.24pm there was a kidnapping incident!! / The criminal took off with a small girl.
-I can sense that after a long sleep,
-This town has been cursed.

Page 35

-It's fine, it's fine.
-You can't wait until you have reached your own home to wash your head.
-Grandma, I've brought Hino-kun.
-Oh my, Oh my, who's this you've brought!!
-Kamekichi-kun from Six Fish
-No, someone else.
-The third son of the leading acadmic Yuuzou-kun
-She must have forgot.
-Aah~~ Hino-kun isn't it? Even though you're so much smaller when you were younger.

Page 36

-It was a joke Hino-kun. / I understand you've grown.
-I won't ever forget you!!
-You are a hero for saving the life of Sayu.
-I've still got that mask you had as a decoration.
-It's a precious treasure <3
-There's no need to talk about such old things. Go wash your head.

Page 37

-It's already been 8 years since that time.
-8 years ago Matsuroba Fairground
-Don't move, hold on
-My hands hurt~~Uuh
-Sayu-chan, don't move from there.

Hi Lingwe, thanks for the work! I read through your translation & I really like the series so I hope you don't mind me pointing out some mistakes:

Page 6
-Working for your family? A university student? A salaryman? / An unemployed bum?

家事手伝い would be more "a housekeeper". And ppl complain how TLs can be literal so you might want to change salaryman to business man :)

Page 7
-Chira (TN- Hino, the main character, hardly speaks at all in the chapter. Most of the things he says are random sounds so I've left them untranslated)
-My old man bought me a game yesterday~
-Seriously!? Show it to me.

lol I agree Nishi always has a lot of random sounds. But here, chira is a SFX for *glance*

昨日親父にゲーム没収された --> My old man took my game away yesterday
マジで?!暴れちゃえ!--> Seriously?! Go show him you're pissed (literally more like "throw a tantrum")

Page 9
-Stop it~~ Hino-kun looks cute.

やめなよぉ〜、火野くんかわいそう --> Stop teasing Hino-kun (literally "stop it, the poor guy")

Page 10
-Oy? Oy? Did he speak? Did he speak?

Did he speak --> Is he gonna speak?

Page 12

-Your silent lifestyle and / an endowment from heaven, say that's not like...
-And that well appointed face with eye's like Hitomi(TN-probably an idol)

君のそのサイレンスなライフスタイルと天の授かり物としか言いようがない・・・--> Your silent lifestyle / And what I can only call a gift the heavens have given you... (a bit literal)

そして整った顔立ちに潤んだ瞳ぃ --> And your well-formed facial features and moist eyes (
literal and could probably be just put as e.g. "beautiful eyes")

Well I don't wanna overdo it suddenly so let me know if you need help or more pointers! ;)

PD: In the page 14 I encounter something strange in the girl's name, when I see the raw, the name in the raw is Ojiro Sayu
