Page #1:

The memories residing in the sword

Title – Chapter 259: Still the Stick

Page #2:

Kojiro: ……!

Ogawa: Huh?

Ogawa: The smell of the tides…

Ogawa: The smell of my home…

Page #3:

Ogawa (thinking): It’s just my imagination. This is Kyoto. I’m far away from Okura…this is the Honami’s garden…all I did was come to Kyoto with my master…

Ogawa (thinking): …so what the hell am I doing?

Ogawa (thinking): I have, in front of me, the well-known and spoken of Ganryuu…

Page #4:

Ogawa (thinking): …Sasaki Kojiro.

Ogawa (thinking): A good man who seems totally relaxed.

Page #5:

Ogawa (thinking): I’m not mad…

Ogawa (thinking): I’m calm…

Ogawa: You probably can’t hear me…but my name is Ogawa Ienao.

Page #6:

Ogawa: I’ve given most of my life to the sword.

Ogawa: Those days were all for this meeting and this match.

Ogawa: I’m glad.

Ogawa: Assuming everyone has that moment of moments in their lifetime, how many of them realize it during that moment? Most would look back on their days when old and realize it…

Page #7:

Ogawa: I’m glad I understand that moment.

Page #8:

Ogawa: …?

Page #9:
Ogawa (thinking): Still the stick…?

Kojiro: Aa…uooo…

Page #10:

Ogawa: ….

Ogawa (thinking): Is that right?

Ogawa (thinking): If that is your decision then it is of no matter to me.

Ogawa (thinking): No matter what your sword may be…

Page #11:

Ogawa: I will strike with MY sword.

Page #12:

Bully #1: THAT guy is your “teacher”…just what have you even learned from him?

Kid: ……

Bully #1: In a war, someone who cuts down 70 men would be a hero.

Bully #1: But during peace time, he’d be a beast--a demon who stepped into the world of man.

Page #13:

Bully #1: Unlike in war, Musashi’s fight with the Yoshioka was just for his own benefit. Isn’t that right?

Bully #1: “He who would kill 70 for his own ego is less than an animal.” That’s what Oshou-sama said.

Kid: …I won’t forgive you…

Kid: Talking like you know it all…just what you monks understand?

Bully #1: Whoa, you’re gonna draw your sword on us? Even though we’re unarmed?

Bully #1: I guess the demon’s student really is a demon too.

Kid: …..

Bully #1: Now! Get him!

Page #14:

Kid: You assholes…!

Bully #1: We got him!

Bully #2: You little demon child!

Otsuu: Huh?

Otsuu: Hey you, cut that out!

Otsuu: What are you doing?

Kid: I won’t forgive you. Talking ill of my teacher!

Bully #1: Shut up, you wild animal!

Otsuu: I said, cut it out!

Otsuu: Fighting is bad!

Page #15:

Bully #1: Shut up, ugly!

Kid: ARRG!

Otsuu: I said cut that out, you little shits!

Bully #2: Uwaaaaa, it’s the demon lady. Run!

Otsuu: Whoever wants a beating come on forward!!

Page #16:

Kid: They were insulting my teacher…saying he was a beast or a demon…

Otsuu: Wild animal…evil demon…his nicknames haven’t changed much since we were kids…

Otsuu: Demon child…Evil-zou (*A play on his name, Takezou), wolf…

Otsuu: Does he not ever want to be more loved by the world…? I wouldn’t be able to stand that.

Page #17:

Otsuu: What is that sweet smell?

Page #18:

Kid: The master can’t use a sword anymore so he’s gonna live with you from now on right, Otsuu?

Otsuu (thinking): I want to live with him…the two of us…

Page #19:

Otsuu (thinking): …happily.

Otsuu: Of course, Takeshan and my happiness are different and I don’t want to get in his way…

Otsuu: So what do I want to do? I don’t know.

Otsuu: I want to do something to help Takeshan be happy.

Ueda: Ah happiness…

Page #20:

Ueda: He will live on carrying the suffering of over 70 people with him. Happiness is definitely, definitely not…

Otsuu: …!?
