**This translation is for OC Scans Group use only. Thanks :)
Just as a note, I'm trying to figure out how to format things so it's easiest to read and scan, so I made some additions to the TL:
*Anything in italics is when a character is thinking.
*Anything in [brackets] corresponds to the written text outside of the bubble. Written text within the bubble is divided by a // (I think...)
*The -- divides the frames, mostly so scanlators can figure out which phrase corresponds to which frame/bubble better.
*Anything in <these things> is for written text that isn't spoken, but it points to something.
I hope I'm not making things more confusing this way! If I am, please let me know via a comment or something! Thanks :)
Ao no Exorcist
Chapter 2: Brothers
Mefist: Wow…such a nice day! // It’s perfect weather to embark on a new journey!
R: I’m hoping everything will be okay if I go along with you… // even though you’re dressed like a clown…
R: WOAH! That scared me!
R: That’s a crazy car…! It’s long! [And it’s pink!!]
I am leaving Rin up to you, thank you very much Faust-san.
M: Leave it up to me. // We will help you with the finances of the charter school as well, so don’t you worry.
R: Huh? Wasn’t your name “Mefist”?
M: [It is Mefist] // Actually, my official name is “Yohan Faust V” // and I am the chairman at the prestigious private school, Seijyuji Academy.
R: Seijyuji Academy…that’s Yukio’s… // [huh?]
Yukio: Good morning!
Y: Sorry I’m late. // I was shocked to hear it too,
Y: That the chairman is going to become our guardian. // Father had asked him, in case anything happened to him…
Y: I never thought we would attend the same school!
R: Wait… // WHAAAAAAAT!!
R: I said I wanted to become one of you guys! / I never said I wanted to go to school!!
M: Shhh…they will hear you.
M: If you “want to become an exorcist” / then // you must first become educated!
M: All students are required to live in this dorm. / You may not leave without permission, once you enter. // You won’t be able to return to the charter school for a while.
M: Are you done saying goodbye to the place you grew up in?
R: The place where Yukio and I…
R: Grew up in for 15 years…
R: Yukio and I have barely spoken to each other since yesterday’s funeral. // Yukio won’t even ask me anything…
R: About what happened when the old man died…about me…what am I supposed to say… // I don’t think I can tell him properly!
Y: Why do you have such a scary look on your face…?
R: It’s / it’s nothing…!
M: Hey guys // You can see the Academy outside.
M: The Academy has various academic facilities for you to use. / It is in the center of Seijyuji Academy Town. // Welcome to Seijyuji Academy!
M: The enrollment ceremony will begin right away. / Follow the others to the main auditorium.
Y: Thank you very much.
M: Oops / Okumura-kun, we forgot about your uniform.
M: Please change in the car.
R: Why are you telling me this now…
M: I will come pick you up after the ceremony. // Then we will talk.
M: The sakura is very pretty…
M: You are very good at tying that tie.
R: He sounds like a fake to me…! // Tsk!
Y: Nii-san // It looks like we can check everything besides our valuables over there.
R: This school better not turn out to be for exorcists-in-training or something…
Y: I’m getting nervous… [sigh…]
R: why? // it’s just an enrollment ceremony, right?
Announcement: Freshman representative // Okumura Yukio
Students: I heard the freshman representative… / scored the highest on the entrance exam // woah!
R: Geez, that’s amazing…just how smart is he…?
Student: Isn’t he kind of cute?
Students: Really? He’s a little dull. // Let’s try talking to him later!
R: That Yukio…?
R: What are you doing!
R: You okay…?
Y: Sorry… / sob sob / cough cough
R: You… // want to be a doctor when you grow up?
Paper: My dream: A doctor
Y: Oh! // Uh… uh… uh…
R: That’s cool! / You are smart! // You can do it, I’m sure!!!
Y: You think so?
R: Of course!!
R: That Yukio that was weak and bullied and a cry baby; // who couldn’t even voice his own dreams…
Y: Freshman representative // Okumura Yukio
R: He IS going to be a doctor
R: And a fun school life awaits you here.
Girls: Hey, Okumura-kun, which major are you?
Y: huh? / um / special honors…
R: He will never be pulled into that other world.
Girls: Oh I knew it! // You’re so tall!
R: That is my problem.
M: Sorry to have kept you waiting.
R: [There you are, clown…]
R: How do I become an exorcist?
M: I’m glad you’re all pumped up about it, // but there are steps one must take to do anything.
M: To begin // I will have you attend a cram school.
R: Cram school!?
M: It’s for exorcists. / You will learn exorcism as a “page” there.
M: Your regular classes here begin tomorrow // but cram school begins today. / Let me show you where it is.
M: But I have one warning!
M: The fact that you are the illegitimate son of Satan must be kept secret.
M: You might be able to hide your tail / and bluff about the ears and teeth. // But the flame is no joke…/ Please practice self-control.
R: I’ll try my best.
M: but… / I am still worried so I will observe the class today. // Eins... / Zwei... / Drei!
M: Let’s go!
R: Exorcists can transform too!?
M: Of course now, I am special.
M: Ah yes / Here is the key to the cram school.
R: Key…? [You’re cute…]
M: It’s a convenient key // that allows you to enter the cram school through any door. [of course I am]
M: Try it out by opening a random door and see for yourself.
M: Freshmen have classes in room 1106
M: Here it is.
R: I’m getting nervous…
R: It’s dirty… // [An abandoned classroom?]
R: 1 // 2 // 3 // 4// 5 // 6 // 7 // So few…! [Eminem…?]
M: There has always been a shortage of exorcists since the beginning of time. [This is actually a larger bunch than usual]
Teacher: Okay, settle down!
M: Here comes the teacher.
Y: Please take a seat! // We will begin our class now.
Y: Nice to meet you. // I am Okumura Yukio and I will be teaching Anti-Demon Pharmacology.
R: YUKIO?? [is that you!?]
Y: Yes, I am Yukio
Y: Is something the matter?
R: Wha… / something is the matter! // What’s the matter with you!?
Y: There is nothing the matter with me. // Please be quiet now so we can begin.
R: Mefist! What’s going on? / What is he…
M: Now now
M: You shouldn’t be addressing me without a honorific title. I am, in fact, your superior. // [so rude…]
R: What is this dog saying…!! // While sitting on my knees…
R: What’s going on, Yukio…!
Y: As you have noticed, // I am a new teacher and am the same age as you all.
Y: However, I am 2 years ahead of you in terms of my exorcism studies… // Therefore, please call me “sensei” when we are in this classroom.
Y: First, / how many of you have been subject to mashou*? // Raise your hands.
*mashou: Something that disturbs the Buddhist training, mentally and psychologically
Y: 3 people. // Let’s begin our first lesson by learning about the “Masshou rituals.”
R: Mashou… // what is that?? [I do like girls that are mashou*]
M: It’s a sickness or wound inflicted by a demon. [What a nice coincidence, I like them too!]
M: If you are subjected to “mashou” even once, you will be able to see demons from then on. // It’s a ritual that every exorcist must go through…
M: Of course, it is unnecessary for you. [since you are a demon]
M: But Okumura-sensei, // he is the youngest in history to have earned his exorcism certificate at his age. // He is an anti-demon pharmacology expert.
R: I had no idea…
R: I have absolutely no idea…
Y: To tell you the truth, / this classroom is usually not in use. // It is a nest for demons of the goblin tribe.
Student: What!? / are we okay to be in here…?
Y: We’re fine. / Goblins generally do not show their presence in bright places where humans are.
Y: They are low ranking demons that only have the power to do minor mischief… // so they are easy for us to handle.
Y: However, when they smell the stench of rotten animal blood, // they become excited and ferocious.
Y: I have prepared the Goblins’ favorite food, milk, mixed with blood… / It has been diluted to 1/10 and I will use one drop to lure in some Goblins… // [It’s a good opportunity to view the ecology of Goblins…] // And have them help us with the ritual.
Y: Please wait while I prepare this.
Y: Can I help you?
R: Explain this…!
Y: We’re in the middle of class. / Please take a seat.
R: STOP MESSING AROUND!
Y: I mentioned it before but… // I became an exorcist 2 years ago and have been training since I was 7. // I was subject to the mashou from you, nii-san… // so I have been able to see demons since I was just a child.
Y: I knew this whole time… // you’re the only one that didn’t. // Can you move aside from there?
R: Then… // WHY DIDN’T YOU TELL ME!!!!
R: WOAH / it stinks!? // what is this smell…! HUH!?
Students: Demon! // huh? // where!? // there!!
Y: Everyone evacuate outside!
Goblins: GRRR // GRR // GRR
Y: They’re weak but there’s too many of them, / plus, they’ve turned ferocious. // I’m sorry, this is my fault. I am still a new teacher… // I apologize, but please stay outside while I exterminate them. / You too Okumura-kun…
R: I’M NOT DONE TALKING TO YOU!!!
R: And it’s not your fault! // It’s mine!! / I’m sorry!
Y: I don’t have any more to say to you…
Y: Anyway, I’m a little busy right now so can we talk later?
R: Our matter is more important than this!
Y: Uh… you’re getting bitten by a whole lot of them
R: We haven’t spoken that much… // after the old man died… // and if you knew all along… / what did you think of me this entire time! Huh!?
Y: What did I think…?
Y: It should be obvious…As long as you are a demon, // I think of you as a potential threat
Y: You’re a fool, nii-san // why did you say you wanted to become an exorcist?
Y: Revenge? // Or is it your atonement to Father’s death…?
Y: It’s too late…
Y: Even if that’s what you’re hoping to do…
Y: You should just report to the Cavaliers or… // please, just die.
R: What… // You…! Do you think the old man died… // because of me!?
Y: Are you saying it’s not? // Father always protected you…!
Y: I watched him protect you this whole time. // Father was… // the single man in the entire world who could possibly go up against Satan’s powers to contain it // so his body was always targeted by Satan! / But he was able to block it for 15 years using his massive willpower and mind! // Father was the ultimate exorcist…!
Y: But… // there was no way he would have allowed Satan to take over his body like that, // unless he faced some sort of fatal psychological damage
Flashback: R: Don’t act like you’re my real father!!
Y: You must have said something, didn’t you?
Y: If it’s one weakness that Father had…
Y: It was you.
Y: Killed Father
R: I… / am stupid just like you say… / so say what you want…! // But…
R: You shouldn’t point your gun at your older brother…! // We’re brothers!!
R: Listen… / I didn’t kill the old man! // I know that / you can’t forgive me… / but is there any meaning in pointing that gun at me? / Tell me! // If it’s going to make you feel better to shoot me, then shoot me!! // SHOOT!!!!
M: Ohh <was here the whole time>
R: Don’t look down on me, // but I won’t fight my own brother!
Y: What were… // Father’s last moments…like?
R: He was…very cool
R: He died protecting me. // My reason for wanting to become an exorcist is not for revenge or anything complicated like that. // I just // want to become stronger. // I don’t want anyone dying because of me anymore!!
Y: Then, / you are the same as me.
Y: I became an exorcist because I wanted to become stronger…
R: Then… // I guess the two of us, we’re just foolish brothers…!
Y: Don’t think of me as the same as you in that sense.
Students: Sensei! Are you okay?
Y: Fine. // Everything except the classroom is fine.
R: WOAH!? / when did this happen…?
Y: You are dangerous after all…
R: I’ll / learn / to control it!!
Y: From now on, / as you strive to become an exorcist, // the words I said to you earlier will always follow you.
Please, just die.
Y: You should be prepared / to have that said to you or thought about you // all the time. // I’m sorry everyone, / we must continue our class in another classroom. / You too, Okumura-kun!
R: That’s no problem… // I’m used to being hated! // Yes, sensei!
Y: What did you think?
M: You need to be a little more laid back but, // you were pretty good considering it was the first lesson!
Y: No…, not about me
M: Hmm // That power was effective against the demons, / we can use it. // He’s still unstable and too easily influenced by his emotions but, / he’s got potential. // Once he can fully control it // he will become the Seijyuji Cavaliers’ ultimate unique and powerful weapon.
M: But we need to keep out eye on him… / We don’t want the Cavalier superiors to find out about him before he is fully utilizable. // But it’s really only a matter of time…
Y: I know…
Y: I’m scared… / I don’t want to see scary things anymore…
Father: Yukio… // Your brother will see something even scarier in 10 years…
Y: What do you mean…? / Nii-san isn’t normal?
F: Yukio…won’t you fight alongside your father?
F: Wouldn’t you rather protect your brother and other people // rather than // living in fear of the darkness…?
Y: I’m going to protect my brother…?
Y: I… // am going to… // protect my brother in place of Father from now on. // I never want to // live in fear of the darkness again.
Dial tone, beep
M: Sheesh // You’re putting too much of a burden on yourself, sensei…you should enjoy life more. // Plus, the Cavaliers are not the only enemy to face
M: Satan should start making his move soon too.
R: 602 / Is this room 602? / No one’s here yet…? // !?
Y: Hey / did I scare you?
R: Uh…m? Why are you here?
Y: Freshmen have to live in 4 people rooms, but I asked for a favor to have a 2 person room.
Y: You’re a threat / and need to be watched.
Y: I asked for it
R: Is this a cage!?
Y: [haha, you’re funny] // yes, I am the guard!
Y: Don’t you want to be an exorcist? / Then you’ll have to bear some inconveniences along the way.
R: Heheheheh…you… // bring it on!
Y: That’s the spirit! / Then…let’s first take care of our homework, shall we?
R: Huh!? Homework…? / we have some?
