Drifters 1


+ posted by serizawa as translation on Apr 28, 2009 03:39 | Go to Drifters

-> RTS Page for Drifters 1

Upper note: "Drifters", Kohta Hirano

Shimazu Yoshihiro: Toyohisa!!

Side note: New series, starting with color pages!

Box: Year 1600, Sekigahara, Utouzaka

A battle to retreat,
opening a way amidst enemy forces!!
"The retreat of the Shimazu"---

Upper splash: Shimazu Toyohisa,
the strong men of the Sengoku era!!
What is the "path" that lies
beyond death...?!

Lower splash: A new epic series is born!!
Kohta Hirano

[T.N.: Shimazu Toyohisa and Shimazu Yoshihiro are both real people, as is this famous battle at Utouzaka during the Sekigahara war.]

Toyohisa: Please retreat!! My uncle!!
Please retreat!
Leave this to me---
--- leave this to this Otoyo here!!
[T.N.: Shimazu Yoshihiro was indeed Toyohisa's uncle in real life. Yoshihiro was an elder brother to Iehisa, Toyohisa's father. "Otoyo" is the way Toyohisa calls himself.]

Yoshihiro: You will go back to Satsuma as well!
You have to go back!!
[T.N.: Nowadays, Satsuma is Kagoshima Prefecture.]

Toyohisa: I would love to go back.
If I were to die, I would rather die in Satsuma.
[T.N.: Toyohisa is speaking in Satsuma dialect here and in the next pages.]

Toyohisa: Uncle, if you reach Satsuma...
... even if I and all the soldiers die here...
... we, the Shimazu, will have won this battle.
Cock your guns and prepare to shoot!!
The time to die---
--- has arrived!!
Our enemy is the Red Devil of the Ii branch of the Tokugawa!!
The strongest and the best enemies we could ever have!!
The time to throw away our lives---
--- is now!!

Ii Naomasa: To let them go back to Satsuma alive---
--- will be a shame to the Ii branch of the Tokugawa!!!
[T.N.: Ii Naomasa is a real person as well, one of the four strongest generals at Tokugawa Ieyasu's service and nicknamed "Red Devil". It is said that he indeed fought with Toyohisa at Sekigahara.]

Toyohisa: We will gain time! Every single second gained is gold!
We will stop our enemies! Every single enemy slain is gold!

Yoshihiro: I will be waiting for you, Tohohisa!!
I will be waiting for you in Satsuma!!
I will be waiting!!
You are not allowed to die here!!

Toyohisa: He is a good uncle.
Toyohisa is very happy.
Well then!! Time to do some work as a warrior now.

Soldiers: Fire!!

Ii Naomasa: I salute you!!
That was splendid!!

Toyohisa: Shimazu Nakatsukasa Shouyuu Toyohisa!!
Here I go!!
[T.N.: "Nakatsukasa Shouyuu" is a degree of honor.]

Ii Naomasa: You are dead, soldier!!
Your forces have already been defeated!!
Give me your head, so that I will be praised!!

Toyohisa: Shut your fucking mouth, senile idiot!!
You won't have my head!!
I will have your head!!

Ii Naomasa: You fool!!

Soldiers: Lord Naomasa!!
Protect our Lord!
Let's go!!

Soldiers: Yea!!

Toyohisa: Fine!

Ii Naomasa: T...
This man...!!

Ii Naomasa: Idiot!!

Toyohisa: You are the idiot!
Ii Jijuu Naomasa!!
[T.N.: "Jijuu" means a chamberlain, a high rank officer, which was the degree of honor Naomasa had.]

Toyohisa: Hah!
I did it!

Naomasa: Oooh!

Soldiers: Lord Naomasa!
Lord! Lord!!

Soldier: Retreat!!
Let us retreat!!

Toyohisa: Wait!!
Are you trying to mock me?!
Come back here!!
Leave your head here!!
Leave your head here with me!!
