PLEASE GIVE DUE CREDITS!! THANKS!!
(at the village of elves, some soldiers are chatting.)
Soldier: Man, I'm thirsty.
Soldier2: Live with it.
The well is poisoned.
Those fucking long ears
threw shit into it.
Soldier 3: Hell,
why don't we just kill them all and----
(a shadow sneaks up behind him.)
Splash: TO CLAIM
WHAT HAS BEEN LOST---
TO CLAIM LIVES!Huge additional printing confirmed for comics volume 1!!DRIFTERSChapter 15 - Monky Magic
[T.N.: Actually, "Monkey Magic", another title of a song.]
Soldier (waking up): What?
(an arrow pierces his throat. There is a shower of arrows.)
Soldier: What's going on!!?
It's coming from the east part of the village!!
(the soldiers dash.)
Soldiers: Is it an attack of those long ears!?
Have no idea!!
(They freeze at the sight of Toyohisa holding a human head.)
Time to flee!!
(Toyohisa stars running.)
Don't let them escape!!
Commander: So, there was
a drifter behind all this, as expected.
Get him, no matter what!!
(the soldiers start running.)
(at the outskirts of the village, Nobunaga is gathered with several elves.)
It has begun.
(the elves look at the map showing the battle tactics.)
Top part of the map: Big Fishing Party of the Elven Village
Right circle of the map: Toyo [T.N.: Toyohisa]
Text below left circle: Bait (for fools)
Left circle of the map: Nobu [T.N.: Nobunaga]
Text below left circle: Oda Nobunaga, master of ambushes
Speed is everything.
Move exactly as I told you.
(The elves brace themselves.)
Nobunaga: Hey, don't worry.
The worst thing that can happen is your death.
(The elves start dashing. Nobunaga is on a carriage with a lot of wood planks.)
Feh, to think that I used to command a huge army of 200 thousand men.
And now, look what I've become.
Heh heh heh heh.
I must admit that this world is really a lot of fun.
And I'm lovin' it.[T.N.: Feel free to change this obvious reference, if you want to XD]
(in another part of the village, Toyohisa beheads another soldier and run away.)
Soldiers: After him!!
Don't let him escape!!
Commander: Why are you taking so long!?
Our target is just one single man!!
Surround him and bring him to me!!
Soldiers: He's laughing!!
What the hell?!
Who the fuck is he!?
(Elves and Nobunaga's carriage enter the village.)
(an arrow pierces his throat.)
Nobunaga: Where's the guide?!
Elf: There it is!!
It's that cart!!
We are in front of my house!!
Nobunaga: Stop right beside it!!
Free the horse!!
Nobunaga: Hurry up!!
Come on, hurry up!!
You will die!! Everyone will die if you don't hurry up!!Hurry up!!
[T.N.: somehow, this scene reminds me of Alucard, in Hellsing.]
(The elves build a kind of a barricade.)
Nobunaga: Shoot the fire arrows!!
This is your farewell to this village!!
Steel your resolve!!
This is your farewell to this village that bound you!!
And this is your farewell to the life you had as serfs!!
(several fire arrows are shot.)
(The buildings are quickly on fire.)
Commander: What!? What's going on!?
(The whole village is engulfed in flames. Nobunaga grins.)
Nobunaga: The soldiers of my country Owari were really weak. [T.N.: Owari is now Aichi Prefecture.]
And that gave me a lot of headaches.
So, I had to think all the time
about ways to cover this weakness up.
But who'd think I would use a strategy from that monkey Hideyoshi? [T.N.: Toyotomi Hideyoshi.]
Hah hah hah!
Lo and behold, this is my Sunomata castle! [T.N.: Sunomata castle was a castle that Hideyoshi built up in just a few hours.]
