-> RTS Page for Hoop Men 16

And another one...it's the second to last! Don't have much to say, the series' end is drawing near and you can feel how Kawaguchi had to wrap things up. Nevertheless, this chapter's been amazing!! I enjoyed every little bit and it was real fun translating...for all you my fellow readers, I've scanned a nice page from Hoopmen Vol. 1 - it's a tap on Kawaguchi's back from his mentor Yuusuke Murata ("Congratulations on the tankoubon sale"):



-page 1-
佐藤雄歩
Teacher: Satou Yuuho
YUHO!!!
Lil American: YUHO!!!
UFO!!!
Bully Brat: UFO!!!
学校はどうだ雄
Gramps: How’s school, Yuu
そしてギターのユーホ!!!
Band leader: And Yuuho on the guitar!!!
はじめましてエドワードさん
MMORPG Witch: Nice to meet you, Edward-san
ゆう坊~~大~きゆなったなあ~
Martial arts gramps: Monk Yuu~~ You’ve grown tall, hu~~h
ごめん伊藤くん…わたし 他に好きな子が
Girl: I’m sorry Itou-kun…there’s another kid I like
あ イヤ オレ 佐藤なんですけど
Yuuho: Oh…I see. But my name’s Satou
佐藤……
Bully: Satou……

佐藤雄歩、これまでにたくさんの人とふれあってきました。そして高校へ…。
Satou Yuuho, he met a lot of people up to this point. And when he came to High School…


-page 2-
雄歩!
Friends: Yuuho!
サトー君!!
Koganei: Satou-kun!!
ユーホ!!!
Josh: Yuuho!!!
通訳くん
Atsumu: So you’re interpreter-kun
今サボったべ雄歩ォ~!!
Nakanishi: No dallying, Yuuho~h!!
雄歩 さあ
Atsumu: So you’re Yuuho
14番 オッケ~っす
Souei: Number 14 / That’s okay
ゆ~ほち~んっ!!
Hana: Yuu~ho-chi~n!!
ほくろ
Fujishiro: Mole

-page 3-
…て感じで今まで色んな「名前」で呼ばれてきたけど…今日 おれ 佐…
…feels like I was called by quite number of different "names"…but today, I, Sa…
なあ ほくろ お前なんでほくろあんの なあ 理由を言え
Fujishiro: Hey, mole. Why you got that mole? / Huh? / Tell me why!
あ いや…マジ おれ わかんないんでマジ マジごめんなさいあのー いいっすか すみません マジいいっすか
Yuuho: Ah, no…seriously, I got no idea. Really… / I’m really sorry, um, okay? I’m sorry / It’s enough, okay?

…今日おれ佐藤雄歩はまたあたらしい「名前」をいただきましたーーそれは…
…toay, I, Satou Yuuho received yet another new "name"—and that is…
「ワンポイント シューター」
"One Point Shooter"
野球でいうところの代打のように勝負のポイントになる場面で一本のシュートを決めるために出てくる
Speaking in terms of baseball it’s a pinch hitter who’ll appear in a sink or swim scenario to decide everything with just one shot of his
シュートに特化した選手のこと
It’s a shooting expert type of player

… 何だ それはどういう意味だ 上のほくろが下のほくろの代打という事か
Fujishiro: … / What’s that? What does that mean? / Like, the upper mole’s the lower mole’s pinch hitter!?
あー俺こいつとあんまりしゃべりたくないわ
Yuuho: Ahh~ I really don’t want to talk to that guy this much!

トーナメント Dブロッグ準決勝  YASHIBA高校 対 UKETACHI NISHI 高校
Tournament’s D Block – Semifinal // Yashiba High School vs. Uketachi West High School

-page 4-
第16話 選手
Chapter 16: Player

快進撃を続けたYASHIBAも追いこまれ…!!
Even never seizing to attack Yashiba is stalemated…!!


score board: Yashiba (87) – Uketachi (89)

-page 5-
3点(スリーポイント)で一気に逆転を狙う
Nakanishi: We’re going for a comeback with a threepointer

残り時間4秒2点リードされてYASHIBAボール  手堅く2点とって延長戦に持ち込む選択肢もあったけど  今のYASHIBAは選べなかった
直前のプレーで高さの要 藤代が5ファウル 退場  この試合中はコートに戻れない状況にあったからだ  ――それだけじゃない
Box: 4 seconds left, 2 points behind, ball Yashiba // We also had the choice to take the safe routine and go for 2 points, making it to extra time // But that would not do for Yashiba of that moment // Right before the games’ climax Fujishiro committed his 5th foul and had to leave court / That way he would not return in that game again // But it’s not only that

-page 6-
UKETACHIのエース 6番 中の瀬によってATSUMUの得点が いつもの半分程度にまで抑えられていた  ATSUMUと互角以上に闘ってるやつを初めて見た  そんな相手だ消耗もハンパない  ATSUMUと藤代――主力2人を欠いた状態で延長戦にのぞむなんて あり得ない事はおれにでも わかった
Box: Because of Uketachi’s ace, number 6, Nakanose Atsumu’s scoring was decreased to half as much than usual. // It was the first time I saw a guy who could fight on par with Atsumu and even beat him // Against such an opponent his exhaustion was also not half bad // Atsumu and Fujishiro――In a situation with two members of our main force missing or tarnished going for extra time was out of question, even I understood that

勝つには 3点しかねえ  みんないいか!?
Nakanishi: Only three points will make us win // Alright everybody!?

-page 7-
それしかねーよ そりゃ  ――で誰が うつ?
Yaguchi: No other option, huh // So, who are we going with?
ATSUMU!! 花井!! あと  雄歩!!――出ろ!!
Nakanishi: Atsumu!! / Hanai!! / And / Yuuho!! You guys go!!
えっ
Yuuho: Huh?
3人のうち誰がうつか…ラストパスはジョシュに任せる!!<訳しろ雄歩>
Nakanishi: To whom of those three he’ll play his last pass…it up to Josh!! <Yuuho, translate!>
え あの オレすか?  わっ
Yuuho: Huh? Um, me? // Wah
そーだよ ワンポイント シューターってやつだ!! <はよ 脱ぐ>
Nakanishi: Yeah, you! Our one point shooter!! <hurry up, undress!>

-page 8-
バーカ 誰もお前がラストショット決めっとは思ってねーよダミーだ  UKETACHIも読んでるATSUMUと花井にはキツいマークがつくだろーからな  やつらの守備を迷わせるためのダミー!!ハッタリだ!!
Yaguchi: You idiot. No one thinks you’ll decide this game with the last shot. You’re just a dummy. / Uketachi read the situation as well, they will mark Atsumu and Hanai extremely tight, you know. // So in order to alienate their defense we need a dummy!! It’s a bluff!!
そーそー「オレにマークつけないの?決めちゃうよ!?」って顔してろ!!
Nakanishi: That’s right. C’mon, put on a "They won’t mark me? I have to settle this" sorta face!!
サトー君 この大会中シュート当たってるから相手も気になるよ
Koganei: Satou-kun scored a distance shot during this tournament. The opponent knows this!
ま オレが決めっからどーでもいーんだけど
Atsumu: Ah well, I’ll decide this thing anyway, so do whatever you want!
どう歩いて  コートまでたどりついたのかすら よく わかんなかった
Yuuho: I don’t really know // how I walked or even when finally I reached the court

-page 9-
覚えてんのは
All I remember…

-page 10-
―――魔法のパス  その感覚
オレが才能あるって?
―――is the feeling of that magical pass
Yuuho: I got a talent!?

-page 11-
ナッシュウ!! …そう!! YUUHOは人より柔軟な手首をもっている!!  それがその柔かいシュートタッチを生んでるんだ!! 天性だよ!!いつかスゴいシューターに…
Josh: Nice shot!! / …yeah!! / Your wrists are more flexible than other people’s, Yuuho!! // Thanks to that you can throw these smooth shots!! / It’s a talent you’re born with!! You’ll be one hell of a shooter one day…

in picture Yuuho (3rd panel): Hm~~

それ 花井さんとかにも言われたけど  クソだわ <ごめんだけど>
Yuuho: Hanai-san and the others also said that… / but that’s bullshit <Sorry about that>

-page 12-
…オレ ちょっと前まで…みんなと比べて… 何も才能ねえ自分のことがイヤでイヤでしょーがなかったよ  才能あるヤツにイラついたり嫉妬したりして  そーいう自分の小っこさが またイヤになったり…  でも   練習して…ちょっとずつシュート入るよーになったら  今さら才能とかって言われんのが ちょっとムカっく感じ あんだよね  オレが 自分で「上手くなりたい!!」って思って  どうすれば入るか考えて試して…積み重ねてった○と×(シュートカ)だから…愛着があるっつーか?  「今ごろ出てきて ワシのおかげじゃ的なコト言ってんじゃねー!!神!!」みてーな
Yuuho: …just a little while ago…I was comparing myself with everyone… / I hated not having talent like all the other guys // I was jealous of them / and being jealous made me hate myself even more... // But… // I still kept practicing…and I started getting better bit by bit / And now all of a sudden I hear people saying I have talent, and it kinda pisses me off // I worked to get these skills! / I like having these skills 'cause I thought about how I could get better, and kept on practicing... / I'm like "It’s my time to shine! So God better not come out and go "It's all thanks to me!!""

-page 13-
「待ってろ!!」 「このまま積んでいっておめーを超えてやるぜ!!神!!」
Yuuho: "You just wait!!" // "The way it’s accumulating I’ll surpass you!! God!!"
なんつって あ よっしゃ ○
Yuuho: No matter what it takes! Oh, yeah!! Scored!
はは…
Josh: Haha…

-page 14, 15, 16-
no text

-page 17-
ようっ  ナイス シュート
Nakanose: Hey! // Nice shot!
あ…!!! どーもっス!!   うお…!!UKETACHIの中の瀬…!!!
Yuuho: Ah…!! / Thanks!! // Wo~w…!! It’s Uketachi’s Nakanose…!!
いいシュートだったよ 超キレてた  YASHIBAがキミみたいな選手隠してとは計算外だったよ  決勝 絶対 勝てよ!!
Nakanose: One hell of a shot! Beautiful! // We didn’t expect Yashiba to have a player like you hidden up their sleeve // Make sure to win the finals!!
あ…!!了解っス!!任してくだ…
Yuuho: Oh…!! Understood!! Just leave it to…
いやいや こいつ基本ホケツなんで
Haraguchi: No, no…that guy’s usually just a substitute

-page 18-
「君みたいな選手隠してっとは」…  「選手」…
"hid a player like you"… // "a player"…
もしかしたらいつかーー通訳としてじゃなく  選手としてジョシュとコンビになってたりするかもね
Koganei: Maybe, one day--- you won’t just be the interpreter // and you’ll form a combo together with Josh
…んふっ  君の予言が当たったよ…
Yuuho: …tehe / So your prophecy was fulfilled…
あ?
Someone: Huh?

もうひとつ加わった名前「選手」。その当たり前の言葉がただ嬉しく…。
And yet another name was added: Player. A rather ordinary word can give huge happiness…
