Tribal 12 Chapter 3
Text: #3 Hometown
Monroe: I will now brief you two
Monroe: On your first mission!
Monroe: Eh… Ko… As for you…
Ko: Yes ma’am! At your service, ma’am!
Monroe: Go home.
Ko (big text): Whaa?!
Ko (small text): I’m already being excluded?
Monroe: Let me finish.
Monroe: What’s with that expression anyway?
Monroe: From the map, analyses of the Ancients’ movements have shown that…
Monroe: … All the activity seems to originate from a single source, what you could call the ‘Nest’.
Ko: No way… That location is…
Monroe: That’s right!
Page 3-4 double spread
Monroe: Your hometown,
Monroe: The East Sea’s port city, ‘Sardo’.
Oz: We’re finally here!
Oz: It’s a really large and pretty city!
Oz: Ohh! There’re castles too!
Kaguya: After the Ancient’s Great March here nine years ago,
Kaguya: They have managed to rebuild to such an extent…
Oz: Eh? This city…
Oz: Was also attacked by Ancients before?
Ko: Although it’s my hometown,
Ko: All that remains are painful memories.
Ko: The scale was unprecedented, the largest march, the Great March…
Ko: It swallowed the city, destroyed houses
Ko: And stole my family from me…
Ko: It was then that I decided,
Ko: To join 12 and save the world!
Word in 10th panel between Ko and Oz: Puke
Ko/Oz: Urgh… I’m seasick…
Kaguya: What are you two doing?
Ko: This brings back memories…
Ko: Nothing has changed.
Ko: There’s a fountain
Ko: Around this corner…
Ko: What is…
Ko: This rock?
Jinga: It really is Ko!
Ko: Aren’t you Crybaby Jinga?
Jinga: I haven’t seen you in a long time! When did you get back?
Jinga: I was so worried about you!
Ko: I just got back.
Ko: Is everyone alright?
Ko: Oh yes,
Ko: This rock is…?
Jinga: Ah… That?
Jinga: That’s an Ancient!
Words in first panel: Anna! Marcus!
Ko: You are worshipping the souls of the Ancients?
Words in first panel: Hannah! Marcus!
Jinga: We pray like this every night!
Small text in same bubble: You join in to, Ko!
Ko: I’ll pass…
Jinga: Your friend seems to be having a lot of fun!
Ko and Kaguya: Who asked you to join?!
Ko: Jinga, you are worshipping Ancients…
Ko: Have you forgotten what they did to us?
Jinga: Of course not.
Jinga: That tragedy from nine years ago…
Jinga: Everybody lost a loved one…
Jinga: Hit by despair,
Jinga: It took years before there were the first signs of reconstruction.
Jinga: But one day, a group of people appeared.
Jinga: What that man said,
Jinga: Changed us.
Ko: That man?
Jinga: ‘This is holy land!’
Jinga: Light returned to our hearts…
Jinga: We rebuilt the city with our faith in Petros.*
Jinga: I’m the leader of the youth division!
Jinga: Ko… you…
Jinga: What did you do after you left the hometown?
*Translator note: The faith literally means Big Wheel Rock, but I chose the Greek word for Rock, Petros, because that’s cooler. When a Jap translator gets their hands on the raw, please help double check.
Oz: We’re 12!
Oz: Specialized in beating up Ancients!
Oz: Even though Ko’s just a subordinate…
Oz: He’s in charge of me.
Ko: Subordinate!? I’m here to train you!
Ko: I’ll an official member soon enough!
Oz: What’s the matter?
Big Man: So…
Big Man: 12 has finally come to this place.
Jinga: Priest Ivaroc’s predictions were right.
Ivaroc (I think): These Ancients…
Ivaroc: Are a warning for the excessive evolution of humans!
Ivaroc: They are the anger of the land!
Ivaroc: Burnt and destroyed by the gods,
Ivaroc: Only now can the city become clean and holy!
Ivaroc: As long as you worship the Ancients,
Ivaroc: And found a country with the kindness of your heart,
Ivaroc: Ancients will not appear again!
T/N: He is spouting utter bullcrap, so that’s why it doesn’t really make sense.
Kaguya: It’s hard for normal people to understand this…
Kaguya: Ancients have no will of their own.
Kaguya: The reason why they form…
Kaguya: Is the collective thoughts of the ancient people collected within relics and stone… The remnants of those thoughts…
Someone: You are saying that thoughts will become reality and pointlessly destroy cities?
Someone: I think your words are the laughable ones.
Kaguya: This is all because of the Metaphysic particles.
Kaguya: The powerful thoughts of mankind merged with the Metaphysic particles floating in the air and materialized.
Kaguya: Those are Ancients!
Kaguya: And 12 has the special power, VISIONS
Kaguya: Ancients suck in humungous amounts of Metaphysic particles as they destroy the world…
Kaguya: That is why we need stronger VISIONS to eradicate them.
Kaguya: That is our mission!
Ivaroc: What will mutual destruction bring?
Ivaroc: We don’t need 12! The gods will have mercy on us!
People: That’s right!
People: Priest Ivaroc is right!
Kaguya: They are not gods, merely will-less rocks!
Ivaroc: It’s really nice, the way you put it…
Small text in same bubble: Will-less rocks…
Ivaroc: However, those who make a fool of the gods…
Page 13-14 double page
Text: Will incur their wrath!
People: T-They really appeared!
Ivaroc: You see!
Ivaroc: This is the wrath of the gods!
Kaguya: …No way…
Kaguya: How can this…
Oz: Got it!
Oz: Let’s gooo!
Ko: You’re pretty good, Oz!
Oz: Hehe, leave it to me!
Kaguya: Good work, but it wasn’t very touching…
Ko: Take a good look!
Ko: Your objects of worship have attacked you!
Ko: Ancients aren’t any form of gods!
Oz: But you guys don’t have to worry!
Oz: We 12 will completely annihilate them!
People: This is a disaster…
People: The Ancients have appeared again…
People: This should never… have happened again…
People: Nightmares have appeared in this holy land…
People: It’s that brat……
People: 12 angered the gods.
People: If it’s like this, tragedy will occur once more…
People: This is a disaster!
People: Priest Ivaroc…
People: What should we do?
People: Lead us please!
Ivaroc: There is only one way to soothe the land.
Ivaroc: That is to present their foolish bodies to the gods.
Ivaroc: As sacrifices…
Ivaroc: Hitobashira [T/N: Hitobashira is this traditional Japanese thing where you bury humans alive in the structures of a building, use to ensure stability and protection.]
Oz: Trouble! Stop them!
Oz: Trouble disappeared, what are we to do now?
Ko: I know…
Ko: There’s something not quite right with this city…
Kaguya: The density of Metaphysic particles has decreased…
Kaguya: This way, we can’t use VISIONS.
Kaguya: 12 who cannot use VISIONS… Are merely ordinary humans.
Ko: Ugh… Jinga, don’t be fooled…
Ko: Hurry… Wake up!
Jinga: Who asked you to bring 12 here?
Kaguya: It’s too coincidental, Ancients appearing…
Kaguya: Metaphysic particles disappearing…
Kaguya: Don’t tell me…
People: You are sacrifices.
People: Be sacrifices!
Jinga: Priest Ivaroc…
Jinga: This… Should be enough, right?
Jinga: The city will be saved, right?
Ivaroc: Of course.
Lackey: Priest Ivaroc.
Lackey: The preparations are complete.
Ivaroc: Before the ceremony…
Ivaroc: Could I bother you to help me carry some things to the boat?
Jina: What’s in these?
Ivaroc: Hm? All books!
Small text in that same bubble: My masterpieces.
Ivaroc: Idiot! Pick that up now!
Lackey: R-Right away, sir!
Jinga: Just a moment, Priest Ivaroc… What is all this?
Ivaroc: I am leaving, Jinga.
Ivaroc: 12 is already here.
Ivaroc: This city is already dry.
Ivaroc: I will take the tokens of generosity away with me.
Ivaroc: Cities devastated by the Ancients are ten a penny.
Ivaroc: All I have to do is cry and move the public and I will be their religious leader.
Ivaroc: I’m done, Nitol.
Ivaroc: I’ll make my move to the next city first.
Ivaroc: I’ll leave the rest to you.
Jinga: Was it all…a lie?
Jinga: Lying to the people of this city…
Ivaroc: Ancients are manifestations of the earth’s anger?
Ivaroc: How can that be?
Ivaroc: Idiots who cannot discern fake tears from real ones.
Ivaroc: Come and chase me if you’re unhappy! Hahaha!
Jinga: No way…
Jinga: What…have I done?
Jinga: I’m sorry… Ko.
Ko: It’s okay.
Lackey: What’s this rope doing here?
Sfx: Slap Slap Slap
Page 24-25 double spread
Lackey: There’s something following us?
Small text in same bubble: It’s a funny man.
Jinga: That is…
Ko: Sound travels 4 times faster in water than in air!
Ko: I heard everything you said!
Small text: At 4 times the speed!
Ko: I will not forgive you!
Lackey: Ah! That…guy!
Lackey: Not 12!
Lackey: Yeah! That’s the guy with them!
Ko: I’m a member of 12!
Small text: The more you say, the more unforgivable you are!
Jinga: I wronged you…I…
Ko: It’s okay, Jinga!
Ko: You were trying to protect the city.
Ko: In all that chaos, you let me fall to the sea…
Ko: But you hoped that I would survive and flee, right?
Ko: Crybaby Jinga!
Ko: Your tears are not lies.
Ko: We 12 are well aware of who the enemies are!
Ivaroc: That guy smells suspicious!
Ivaroc: Kill him immediately!
Ko: Academically, physically, tactically the best… As the special candidate…
Ko: The possible ways to leap from here to the boat…
Ko: By my calculations,
Ko: Are 57.
Sfx: Pull back
Ko: As long as we’re out of the city…
Ko: I can use VISIONS!
Sfx: Splash Splash
Sfx: Bang Bang
Text: With you people…
Text: I will use the most brutal method!
Ko: Crocodile tears cannot fool me.
Page 30-31 double spread
Ko: Don’t look down on 12!
Ivaroc: Defeated by someone…not part of 12…
Ko: Deceiving the public with lies,
Ko: Return our hometown to us, fake priest.
Ko: First mission…
Ko: And… I *am* a member of 12.
Small text: After so long, I still have to say it.
Ko: Now… To rescue Oz and Kaguya.
Nitol: It is time.
Nitol: The brainwashed city that made a liar their leader…
Nitol: And the evil intent of the people…
Nitol: Will grow only stronger from fear.
Nitol: I summoned the Ancients to fool 12 into coming…
Nitol: Everything is proceeding according to plan.
Nitol: Let us begin!
Nitol: In the name of PROJECT BABEL……
Nitol: The Battle to Annihilate 12!
Sfx: Rumble Rumble Rumble
