Hiro of the Blue Flames
-> RTS Page for Examurai 1
I shouldn't be here or doing this 2 days before my A levels but I qualify this with saying I didn't have Mago to translate today... :')
Anyway, I decided to change my translation rendering style this time. Instead of indicating the person speaking I decided to use letters to indicate bubbles, boxes and aori. Mainly because it seems better than going "dude" (or what have you) when I don't know who is speaking or the name of the speaker XD I just hope it doesn't make it too confusing...
b - bubble
a - aori/thoughts (anything not in a bubble or box that isn't sfx)
x - box
s - sfx in bubbles (not translating non-bubble sfx)
JumpSpirit is scanlating thisbut just as with my other translations, you only need to PM me if you are also interested in using it (includes international scanlations). Reserved for Muda Scanlations. International scanlators please PM me before using.

a1: What a bother
b8: You're an adult, d... Don't you have some pride!?
b11: O, oi
b1: What were you thinking, going on a journey without even bringing enough food?
b2a: Now, now, whatever the case
b2b: It really helps that your family runs a restaurant, Yasuke!!
b3: And you're even the master of such a fine establishment at such a young age. Tha--... That's quite a feat
b4: ... Oh... I didn't have a choice since my dad died!!
b5: And to top it all off, this stuff tastes pretty good!!
b6: Th... That's because I pored over my dad's recipes and intensively trained my skills in cooking them...
b7: Speaking of which...
b1: YOU'RE EATING WAY TOO MUCH!!!
b3: I'm so sorry...
b4: You're draining the restaurant of all its stock...
b5: Really? Haha, I haven't eaten a crumb for about half a day
b6: THAT'S PERFECTLY NORMAL!!
b7a: Jeez, it doesn't help that thanks to the recent spate of stray Majinki going on frenzies
b7b: Even lesser foodstuff has been coming in here...
b1a: For about a year
b1b: Majinki have been breaching our "walls" and charging into the city
b2: Everyone's so terrified, they've tightened the security at the gate more than before
b3a: Come to think of it, did you know?
b3b: Up until 500 years ago, there wasn't a single Majinki around
a1: There actually were some good times
b4: Hmm, you sure know a lot
b5: That's because I'm learning about it in school right now
book cover: History 2
b5: 2718 by the Imperial Calendar
x1a: 2718 by the Imperial Calendar
x1b: There was an invasion by "Majinki", which came from space and had bodies that were half beast, half machine
x2a: From that moment forth, the war between "Majinki" and "Humans" began, and continued for the next 10 years.
x2b: It was the outbreak of the so-called "Majin War" (TN: "Ma" from Majinki and "Jin" from the Japanese word for "human", hence "Majinki-Human War")
b1a: In one fell swoop, the world population fell to 30%
b1b: And the earth fell into ruin
b2: And just when everyone thought "this is the end"
x3: They appeared--

x2: The "XILE Tribe"
x3a: Each of them used the power of a mysterious ring
x3b: To drive away the Majinki with the force of a raging storm
x4a: The people said that
x4b: With a single skyward swing of their swords, a blue flame would soar up into the sky
x5: As if instantaneously turning any dark nights of despair into "azure blue skies"
b1: What a pack of lies!!!
b3a: The remains of that war are those stray Majinki, right?
b3b: If all that was true, they shouldn't even have left any behind!!
b1: But hey... This signboard...
b2b: My dad's a fan
board: XILE Restaurant
b3: How stupid, to believe all those urban legends
b4: Urband legends?
b5a: They say the XILE Tribe really are still living on to this day, 500 years later
b5b: And that they're continuing to save everyone from the Majinki
b6a: "That's why I, too, am part of the XILE Tribe in spirit," he said
b6b: As he went to exterminate the stray Majinki...
a1: It's that big pig-like one-eyed Majinki again
a2: As if I could stand idly by watching... As more people fall victim to it!!
b7: --- But he ended up being the last victim
b1a: It's so stupid
b1b: I hate the XILE Tribe
b2: And I ain't gonna believe those urban legends either
b4: ISN'T IT OBVIOUS!!!

a2: Ba ba ba ba ba
b2a: This guy
b2b: What a thing to say...!!!
