Straight for the heart. [For society, for people, for you]
-> RTS Page for B.Ichi 1
I got asked to do this by an Italian group for their international release. Not sure if anyone else would want it, but if they do, feel free to use it! ^^
Since the first chapter is 80+ pages long, they told me it was fine to start posting my trans, even if it was only half finished. But don't worry, I'll keep working on it! \o/
[Note: I read somewhere that the name of the manga is a pun- as ‘itchi’ in English is ‘One’ so B.itchi can be read all together as ‘Bone’.]
Straight for the heart.

-Master’s who have transformed
the [way] of human [evolution]…
[Tn: the kanji used for Dokeshi is made up of the words "way" and "evolution"]
-Hey, hey…Have you heard?
-A normal person can only use about 30% of their brainpower…
-The people called “Dokeshi”, right…They can use more than that!
-They can use about 50% – 60% of their brains to do special magic.
-But, ya’know, in exchange…
-If they don’t meet,
-If they can't meet the condition that is relative to their power…
-They will be forced to part with something precious from within themselves…
-For society, for people, for you.
-This is Japon’s capital city,
So this is Chinjuku, huh…
(Tn: pun on the town of Shinjuku in Tokyo)
-It’s so busy and bustling…
-I’ve heard that this place is pretty dangerous and full of tricksters so…
-I guess I’ll just have to be careful to not get ripped off!
-I’m sure it’ll be fun! <3 / Heheheheh….
-I came here because a fortune teller told me too but still… / now that I think about it he was dressed kinda weird…!
Sign: Space fortune telling
-I’ve been traveling around according to fortune teller’s recommendations… / So I was wondering if you could possibly tell me where I should go next…?
-Oh well, I’ve heard there’s a fortune teller in Chinjuku whose predictions are nearly always right…
-…There are so many people here…
-I wonder if…I’ll be able to make any friends?
-Then…I’ll be able to make a ton of commendations!!
Text: The most important thing!
-I, Charisma Justice, cannot overlook your evil deeds! No, I simply cannot!
-You’re dead, dipshit!
-GO CJ! You can’t lose!!
-I can’t see the TV ‘cause you’re standing too close.
-Guess Toykyo has its share of idiots after all.
-Go die in a hole, villan!
-CJ’s gonna do his special move, the “Justice Blade”!
-I know, I know. He always does it.
-It’s been like that forever.
-Man, looks like he’s obsessed…
-C’mon Justice Blade!!
-‘J’ on the left for JUSTICE! Jashun! ‘C’ on the right for Charisma! Karuum!
-Here it comes! My special move!!
-Note to self: avoid idiots like that…
-The idiot flew…
-Hey, you! Are you okay?
-What about his head!?
-We did it!!
-It’s those kids again.
-What are their parents thinking, letting them run wild like this…
-Who cares about parents? / I have you, Shotarou!!
-And I have you, Emine!
-How can you call the person who gave you first aid a ‘monster’!?
Box: She’s the person who hit him.
-I apologise for the rudeness of my actions.
-No, no, same here.
-Still, I’m glad I was carrying this first aid kit around.
-Ooh, the bandages stopped the bleeding!
-Emine is my friend’s name!
-On a journey to find Emine.
-So you’re on a journey to find your friend, / must be hard…
Text: Bird Bone!!
-Hyufufu / Here you go…
-You’re something, mister. In a lot of ways!
-You got that right.
-Hurry up, we’re going!!
-What did I tell you about not talking to those Dokeshi?
-What’s with her attitude?
-You’re…a Dokeshi, right?
-It can’t be helped, though. The number of incidents involving Dokeshi just keep going up.
-Everyone’s being more cautious now.
-But all that aside, you can fly Shotarou-kun!?
-By biting on an animal’s bones I can draw out that animal’s powers.
-And my ‘condition’ is that I have to do ‘one good deed a day’!!
-“One good deed a day”!?
-The more power I take out of dead bones the more I have to give back to the living.
-Oh, so that’s why you got that kid her balloon back.
-Falling on my dick has nothing to do with it, though.
-I know that!!
-Well, whatever. There are good Dokeshi like you, and then there are also the bad types who want to kidnap the Governor.
-Arrrrgh!! / My bike!!
-C-C'mon, Shotarou-kun! / Use your bird powers to catch the thief!
-Uwaaa! / That ants tryin' to carry a butterfly!
-In English, "Ari" is ant!
Note; Ari means ant in Japanese.
-Are you even listening to me!? / You're so useless!!
-Screw you!! / Waaaaaaaaah!!
-It started out as this massive battle between him and I, with a few laughs thrown in. A game of cat-and-mouse. And then, after all that, I can't believe all he did was cry like a little girl...
-Huh? / What happened? You're out of breath.
-Oh, I was just playing around with the locals.
-This place is pretty rough, isn't it...
-...Plus, there's that problem with the Dokeshi too...
-There's a rumour going around that it's Dokeshi responsible for this crime.
Newspaper title: The Governor of TOYkyo has been kidnapped!!
-It's been all over the tv!!
-Oh, I don't watch much TV. Just "Justice".
-It's been in the newspapers too!
-Oh, I just look at the TV guide to see if "Justice" is playing.
-...You watch it so much but you don't even remember what day it comes on?
-I just get so excited / when I see in the paper that "Justice" is playing.
-You do know... / It plays at the same time, so you don't have to check it every week.
-Ooooh! You mean you can predict when it's on!?
-Whooo! / Whooo!! / Whooo!!
-What's all the commotion?
-Charisma Justice has caught the kidnapper!!
-Sorry for making you all worry.
-The Govenor's perfectly safe!!
-What!? Charisma Justice really exists!?
-You didn't know that? / They base the TV show on that guy!
-I'm gonna go look!!
-Man, this crowd is huge...
-Wow! It really is CJ!!
-Who are you!?
-You're a Dokeshi, aren't you!!
-They said something about a Dokeshi...
-Ew, his face is so damn creepy...
-Why haven't they caught him yet?
-It's because of trash like you that the world is like it is.
-I can't stand the sight of you!
-Wait just a goddamn second!
-Since when do you have the right to say that being a Dokeshi makes someone evil?
-Huh, so you're a Dokeshi too?
-They might behave themselves now, but you'll never know when they'll use their powers for evil!
-He's talking about you, moron!!
-Now, now, calm down Missy...
-The Vice Governor feels uneasy about this incident too..
-I don't want to back down but... how do I say it...
-I'm the mature one!
-I'll clean the streets of trash like you!
-You still got somethin' ta say!?
-Well, I got plenty more too!! How do I say it...
-Godammit... / It's because of guys like him Japon is doing so badly...
-I can't believe Justice really exists...
-Why don't you feel fustrated too, Shotarou-kun?
-I'm used to it.
-You shouldn't be used to people saying things like that.
-You mean people telling me "wrong!!"?
-No! Stuff like what that crusty old man was saying!!
-Hey! Listen to me!
-But...you just said not to listen to what people say, right...?
-Oh, shut it! I've had enough!
-Crap! I'm late!
-I'm in a "stop with that obviously fake expression!" competion!
-What the hell is that...?
-TOYkyo Metropolitan Government Building.
Sign: Governor's Room
-So, this is what it feels like to be sitting in the Governor's chair...
-It's pretty damn comfortable!
-The city belong to you now,
-Why thank you, Fake Justice.
-Hey, hey, don't call me a Fake.
Box: Tast Brother (Older)
-We, the Tast Brothers, kidnapped the Governor... / Then transformed outselves into the Governor and Justice to capture the "culprit" we had set up ahead of time.
-It was a breeze with our abilities to transform ourselves with our "water-swelling" powers together with our plan!!
Text, Left - Right: Older Bro Govenor Younger Bro
-"Culprit" was already set up (and has nothing to do with this.)
-Fake Governor (Older Bro)
-Fake CJ (Younger Bro)
-Sorry for making you worry!
-I had nothing to do with it!
-Here, have some dried meat. Our condition is the more we manipulate the water inside our bodies, the more dried food we have to eat.
Box: Tast Brother (Younger)
-By the way, Nii-chan...
-What should we do about the real Govenor?
-Our plan is already complete.
-We can't afford to let him live.
-We still need to kill that Dokeshi-hating Vice Governor.
-So you can then transform into him and it'll be all over.
-It'd be a pleasure to kill that damn Vice Govenor!
-Can we go kill him now?
-How can this be happening...?
-No-one will find out it's us, right?
-Don't worry about that. / Even if we are found out... our "water swelling" powers make us...
-The Government of this city is ours!
-Thanks for all your help!
-Something that big would be heavy for anyone to carry!!
-Hmmph. / That cranky old coot again?
-...I need to talk to you...
-Woo-hoo! I came first again!
-That's another commendation in the bag! / HUH!?
-He's probably dissing Shotarou again!
-That boy's just too damn nice!
-Hey! You better not be teasing Shotarou!
-You're too stubborn for your own good!
-We have to hurry. There's no time! / Both of you, get in!
-Ow! Hey! My scooter! Ow! / Arrrrrgh!
-We'll have it sent later.
