Drifters 20


+ posted by serizawa as translation on Mar 1, 2011 00:14 | Go to Drifters

-> RTS Page for Drifters 20


Upper note: [Drifters] Kohta Hirano

Side note: The elven people rose after reading Nobunaga's manifesto... what will be the next step!?

[Olmine and the elves are surprised at Nobunaga's actions.]

Elves: What on earth are they doing?
What are they doing with the bathroom soil?
Have no idea.

[Nobunaga grins in satisfaction.]

Nobunaga: Take care.
Or else you'll be blown up.
Hey, Shara, go to the guys from the other villages.
Tell them to bring all the soil they can get from bathrooms, stables, pigpens and alike.

Shara: Why do you want so much shit?

Chapter 20 - Searchlight [T.N.: not clear what song this is. Probably, "Searchlight" from King-show, or Kinniku Shoujo-tai.]

Shara: Nobu, sir.

Nobunaga: So, how was it?

Shara (carrying a firearm - an arquebus?): I asked the blacksmiths of every village.
All of them said that this is a too complex equipment to copy.

Nobunaga: I see.
Now I realize how amazing the Sakai and Kunitomo guys were. [T.N.: Sakai and Kunitomo, along with Negoro and Saiga, were major places and groups known for manufacturing firearms.]
And who can manufacture this?

Shara: ... probably dwarves.
Their blacksmiths are the only decent thing they have.

Nobunaga: "Dwarves"?
I see.

Yoichi: Hullo, I am the archery instructor for you elves!
I am Nasu no Suketaka Yoichi!
I will put all of you through the wringer!
You'll be so exausted that you won't be able even to laugh or cry!
Whenever you speak something, say "Genji, hooray!".

Elves: "Genzi"...?
W... what's that?

Yoichi: I don't want an accuracy of 100%, I demand 1000%!
This is the goal!
So, be prepared for the training!

Elves: Impossible, "Genji hooray!".
That man is normally a comic relief, but when he gets angry,
he is hauntingly fearsome and beautiful.
It's a pity that he's a "short ears".

Yoichi: What are you talking about?
I am the youngest of my eleven brothers from the Nasu family.
And I am the ugliest of them all.
The beauty of my brothers was flabbergasting.
(You'd be dead if you looked at them)
Each step they took, flowers blossomed on the ground, the sea stood still and gold petals fell from the sky.
That's what true beauty is about.

Elves: Impossible, "Genji hooray!".

[Elsewhere, Toyohisa is showing his sword skills.]

Toyohisa: YA

[Toyohisa slashes a tree in half.]

Toyohisa: This is Satsuma's swordfight.
Think of nothing else but putting everything into the first strike.

Elves: Uh... uhm...
If the first strike doesn't connect...
or if the enemy evades, what should we do?

Toyohisa: Die gracefully.
You'll be the first ones to walk the path of death.
And this is quite an honor.

[Night falls. At the castle ruins, the drifters are talking.]

Toyohisa: It's useless to teach my sword skills to the elves.
They have no aptitude for it.

Nobunaga: Hmm...

Yoichi: On the other hand, they are amazing with a bow.
Their shooting skills seem to be innate.

Nobunaga: The blacksmiths of the villages said that...

Yoichi: ... what is this awful feeling?

Olmine: What?

Toyohisa: What's coming?
This feeling...
No, not soldiers from Orte.
Something else
is coming.
This is the same "smell" of Sekigahara.
The nauseating smell of a disgusting war.

[The moon is surrounded by something that looks like an eye]


[A small legion of knighs are riding the plains at full speed.]

Jeanne: Allons, Gilles de Rais!!
I can feel the smell!!
The smell of Drifters!!

Black Lord: KILL.

[Jeanne d'Arc and her minions are galloping at lightspeed.]


Foot note: Drifters 20 end
Continues on the next issue (on sale March 30th).


Translator's ramblings:

- So, now we have Lord of the Rings, or so it seems. Kinda like the Eye of Sauron guiding the Nazgûl - I mean, Jeanne d'Arc and her men - to the Fellowship of the Drifters.
- I had thought the Offscourings minions were just like Drifters - that is, a bunch of different guys from different place and time. But as Gilles de Rais made an appearance in this chapter, it seems that they are somewhat more organized. Will Hijikata's troop feature Okita Souji as well?
- My current take is that the Drifters are chosen among those whose death is only presumed, while the Offscourings are chosen among those who died in a very negative psychological condition - frustration, anger, suffering and so on. Who knows?
