Noel La Neige


The end of the 19th Century France… // Christmas // The whole city was festive and everyone celebrated the happiest day with their loved ones…


Bang / Bam!



??: Owww… // That’s why I hate entering through the chimney!!


??: You’re right. Our clothes get so dirty…

??: That’s not the point!


Boy: Hey you!!


??: Huh?


Boy: Who the hell are you guys!? // What are you doing in my house!!?


Boy: Get out!

??: He’s angry.

Boy: Are you listening to me!?

??: Ugh, what a pain…


??: You know…


??: If we came in through the chimney on Christmas day… // we can only be… you know? You know!


Boy: Yeah… burglars?

??: Santa Claus!!


Noel: I’m Noel Christenbell, a government employee of the North Pole, Santa Claus Number 29.

Rudolph: I’m Rudolph, Noel’s reindeer partner. I’m in my human form right now… // [Nice to meet you.]

Boy: Santa Claus… // and a reindeer!? // Are you guys stupid? // There’s no way Santa Claus exists!! // Plus, if he did exist, he’d be a nice old man!


Noel: That’s an image that all of you humans created in your minds. // In actuality, there are many Santas / and our job is to deliver presents to the children we’re assigned.


Noel: Why do I have to explain all of this to this kid?! [What a pain!]

Rudolph: [Ahhh…]

Boy: Liar…


Noel: Are you listening to me?


Boy: Santa wouldn’t come to give me a gift… // Because I… // I’m not a good kid…


Noel: Dean Falmint, 12 years old, born in France, Alsace.


Noel: Your name was on my list so we came here. // I don’t care what kind of a kid you are. Just tell me what you want! / I want to get my job done as quickly as I can!


Dean: I… // lost the most important thing in the world // so… I don’t… // want anything…


Noel: Okay.


Noel: Let’s go.

Rudolph: Are we done here?

Noel: He says he doesn’t want anything, so there’s no need to force anything upon him.


Noel: I hate gloomy kids like him that don’t have any dreams.


Dean: Kanon…


Rudolph: Noel…


Rudolph: You’re Santa Claus… You should be nicer to children…


Rudolph: It seemed like there was something up with that last one…

Noel: Shut up! I hate kids!!


Noel: Especially that one. He reminds me of my old self… // and it pisses me off.


Rudolph: But, we’re still hanging outside his house and haven’t moved on to our next job yet...

Noel: Did ya say something?

Rudolph: No… Nothing.


<Gates open>


Noel: Why’d he come to the church? [Haha…] // He rejected a present from Santa Claus but he’s going to pray to God?


Noel: This feeling!! // Dean!


Noel: Get away from there!!!




Dean: NOEL!?

Noel: Geez… You’ve caused so much trouble.


Noel: Rudolph!!


Monster: Gyeeeee!!


Rudolph: Leave this up to me! // Take Dean somewhere safe!!


Noel: Okay, thanks!!


Rudolph: So… // you’ll be // fighting me for now.


Noel: Sheesh…


Noel: I’m the one that gets in trouble if one of the kids on my list dies!!

<pant / pant>

Dean: Uh… Um…

Noel: WHAT!?



Dean: What was that monster!?


Dean: Why did it come after me?


Noel: It’s a Jack O’ Lantern… He used to be a human but when he was alive, he made a contract with the devil, so now he can’t go to heaven or hell after he died… // He uses the coal the devil gave him as fuel and continues to wander aimlessly with no where to go. He’s a ghost of despair.


The Jack O’ Lantern usually lurks in the world of afterlife… But he senses children’s sadness, suffering and desperation… / A child that strongly feels despair within themselves can bring forth the Jack O’ Lantern. // Then, he uses his burning hook to take the child’s soul to eat.


Deal: Eat… the soul…?


Noel: Yeah. // The soul of a child in despair is the Jack O’ Lantern’s favorite dish…


Noel: And… // his dinner for tonight, is you!


Dean: What?


Noel: Your soul is in despair… // and has brought forth the Jack O’ Lantern into our world.


Noel: Rudolph!!


Rudolph: Tsk!


Noel: Rudolph! // Are you alright!?


Noel: Did you finish him?

<pant / pant>

Rudolph: No…


Rudolph: No matter how many times I cut him… // He keeps standing up…


Noel: It’s as I thought… // The Jack O’ Lantern was brought forth by Dean’s soul in despair… // So unless Dean can be rid of his despair, // the Jack O’ Lantern can’t be defeated by any weapon!


Noel: Rudolph!


Rudolph: Are you two okay? Noel? Dean?


Noel: You’re the one that doesn’t look okay! You’re wounded everywhere!

Rudolph: Aww, it’s just a scratch.

Noel: You’re bleeding everywhere!

Rudolph: [This is nothing…]


Rudolph: Noel, don’t forget… // The meaning of my existence… // Even if it destroys me and I cease to exist because of it… // I will protect you and Dean with all of my strength. // That is the responsibility of the reindeer…


Dean: Are you stupid?


Dean: Why would you do all this to protect me? // I… didn’t even ask you to save me. // I…


Noel: What!?

Dean: I… // killed my own little sister! // Don’t I deserve to die!?


Dean: Kanon, I’m home!! // I got paid today so I bought you your favorite walnut bread!

Kanon: Welcome home, oniichan!

We lost our parents in an accident so my sister and I were the only family we had left…


Dean: You’re reading again? You’re such a bookworm.

Kanon: Hehe.


Kanon was always weak… So I always worked until late at night… // In order to protect this innocent smile…


Kanon: You can’t come home until the day after tomorrow?


Dean: Yeah, I need to help with a shipment that’s coming in from the East. // But I’ll make a whole lot after this job is done!! Then I can buy you a new book!


Kanon: I see…


Dean: Are you okay!? Maybe I shouldn’t go to work afterall…

Kanon: You’re so dramatic! It’s just a cold so don’t worry about it.


Kanon: Good luck // oniichan!

Dean: Okay… // See you later…


Dean: It’s so late… // But I have a new book for Kanon at least. // Kanon, I’m home…


Dean: Kanon!!?


Kanon had a high fever unlike any she’d ever had… // and the next evening, she died…


Dean: It’s my fault. // If only I hadn’t left her alone. // Someone like me… // someone that let their sister die has no right to live…


Noel: That’s enough!! // Stop whining about if you should die // or if you should live, you dumb brat!!


Noel: Do you think Kanon would be happy if you died!?


Noel: If you still care about your sister, // you should see more of the world // and feel more things // and live her life through yours!!


Noel: Isn’t that what you should do as the older brother?


Noel: Dean!!


Noel: Rudolph!!


Dean: Ow… I’m cold… This is… death… // Yes… // Kanon had been fighting against “death” for so long… // But why was I trying to go towards it…?


Dean: No… // I’m scared… // No…

I don’t want to die… I want to live!


Noel: The flaming hook is disappearing… // which means… // Dean’s soul is…!!


Noel: The Jack O’ Lanter didn’t get a hold of Dean’s desperate soul, // so it’s no longer immortal… // I can take him on now! // Concentrate! // Entering battle mode!


Noel: Freeze!! // You beings of the darkness! // Crystal Neige!



Dean: There’s snow… // inside the church… // snow… // It’s snowing!? // [Why?] // And it’s piling up so much!


Noel: You sound like you’re all better.

Dean: Noel! Rudolph! And a snowman!!?


Dean: What happened to my wound…?

Noel: I healed it for you… with magic.


Noel: But… If I hadn’t taken care of it as quickly as I did you would have gone to the other side. It was a close one.

Dean: Ah…


Noel: Anyway, I have work to finish… Bye! [Let’s go, Rudolph.]

Dean: Wait!!


Noel: You still need something…?

Dean: Uh…


Dean: Is it too late to ask you for my Christmas present? // I just thought of something…


Rudolph: Noel…

Noel: What?

Rudolph: Are we allowed to do this?


Noel: Why not?

Rudolph: Because… Presents are supposed to be for themselves…

Noel: It’s fine…


Noel: It’s the one thing he wanted the most…

Thanks so much for the translation xD I hope you don't mind me using them in an . . err . . . semi-scanlation. Hehe~

By the way, I noticed the page 14 was doubled, so the page order got affected. Ehehe . .

You begins of the darkness! <-- and that's a typo right? Supposed to be "beings"? ^^;

thanks for pointing out the typo! btw, can you ask soethrealis if you can use the translation? they asked me to do it, so i'm reserving it for them.

I didn't see the reservation note yesterday o_o;;;

I'm so sorry . . .

but it's not exactly a scanlation (more of an impressions/review post) so . . maybe it's okay? *nervous*

yeah, it's my bad. i didn't put the note yesterday. it's not problem on my end, i just don't want groups getting mad at me (or each other) so it'd be cool if you can just run it by them :)
