Drifters 9

Burn my dread

+ posted by serizawa as translation on Dec 26, 2009 23:06 | Go to Drifters

-> RTS Page for Drifters 9

(A parrotlike being flies, screaming)

Parrot: The Imperial March!
The Imperial March!
It's the Imperial March
of the Black King!
The Imperial March! The Imperial March!
The time for the Imperial March has come!
The Imperial March!
The Imperial March!

[T.N.: In Japanese, it's written "Goshinsei". It means an expedition moved by the king for conquest. But as this explanation would be a little bit too much for the baloons, I adopted "Imperial March" as translation, despite the obvious reference to Star Wars. :P]

Side note: The huge war who began in a strange world... What would be its purpose----!?

(The parrot goes on screaming. Heavily armored people and monsters are in stand-by, listening.)

Parrot: Hearken to me, ye who have ears!
Behold, ye who have eyes!
Howl, ye who have mouth!
Spread the word!
The Imperial March!
The Imperial March!
The Imperial March!
'Tis the beginning of the journey to destroy the world!
Gather and join!
Gather and join!

(Parrot keeps screaming, men mounted on dragons listen)

Parrot: All might to the Black King!
All might to the Black King!

Octobrist: The "Black King"....
The Lord of the "Offscourings"...!
It is too late!
He has come!!

Splash: The March of the Black King!!!


Kohta Hirano

Chapter 9 - Burn my dread

Bottom note: Hellsing OVA volume 7 & YK comics Hellsing 10 volumes on sale!!

(The soldiers gathered at the Carneades wall are afraid)

Soldiers: Monsters!
Damn you, monsters!
Look at their sheer numbers...!
Go to your positions!!

Octobrist: How deep is the hate you nourish inside, Black King?
How deep is your hate against "Drifters", the world and everything?

(The Black King points forward.)

Soldiers: There they come!!
Their attack will commence!!
Archers! Get ready!!

Black King: Bring them death.

(A furious attack begins)

Soldiers: F...

(Arrows fly onto the monsters)

Black King: Hijikata.
[T.N.: Hijikata Toshizo, vice-commander of the Shinsengumi.]

(Hijikata presents himself)

Black King: Jeanne d'Arc.

(Jeanne d'Arc grins.)
[T.N.: Saint Joan of Arc (1412?-1431), the maid of Orleans, national heroine of France and a Catholic saint.]

Black King: Anastasia Nikolaevna Romanova.

(Anastasia shows up.)
[T.N.: Grand Duchess Anastasia Nikolaevna of Russia (Анастаси́я Никола́евна Рома́нова) (1901-1918), youngest daughter of Tsar Nicholas II of Russia, the last sovereign of Imperial Russia.]

Black King: Go.

Man: So, it has finally begun.
Do you really intend to bring an end to the world?

Black King: You...
you are free to do whatever you please.

Man: Yeah.
I have always done what I wanted.
So, I will do the same here as well.

Black King: Kurou Hangan Yoshitsune. [T.N.: the famous Japanese warrior, Minamoto no Yoshitsune]
Which side you belong to?
Are you a "drifter" or an "offscouring"?

Yoshitsune: Who knows?
Perhaps I belong to the fancier one.

Soldiers: Fire! Fire!!
Fire at will!!
Don't let them get any closer!!
Fire more arrows!!

(A rain of arrows pours onto the monsters.)

Transmission: To all Flying Dragon Knights, this is Aerial Surveillance Knight.
Begin aerial support!
Deploy aerial combat forces!!

Soldiers: Shit!
They come one after another!
There is no end!

(A dragon shows up and opens her mouth.)

(Dragons attack the soldiers at the wall with their breaths of fire)

Knight: Go!! Go!! Go!!
Begin Operation Drabourne!!

(Several knights begin rappelling from the dragons and get onto the wall.)

Transmission: Descend successful!! Losses minimal!!
Second rappelling group ready!!

Knights: Run!

(Arrows fly onto the ground monsters. Goblins check the map)

Goblin: Pgyah! Pgyuh!
Pgyuh! Pgyuh!
Pgyuh! Pgyeeh!

Transmission: Aerial Knights, this is Aerial Surveillance Knight Agnela 1.
There is a request for support from the 7th Goblin Batallion.
Coordinates are 42-7-12 73-42-8.

Octobrist: This is the end!
We can't hold on any longer!!
But no matter what it takes, the Drifters must be...

(The Octobrist opens his eyes wide.)

(A window opens up in the air. An old fighter aircraft comes out from it.)

Side note: Men and women engulfed by the flow of History appear one after another... Drifters will be the cover for the next number!!
