:luv KARIN :luv
Hello everyone, and welcome to this"who cares how many it's been"th translation of ES21~ You know, it's kinda impressive, I've been translating for a year and a half now, and I'm only now picking up a new weekly project... But well, it has nice art and I like the main female character, so this was a given. So if you've got some free time, please check [i]Dogashikaden![/i]
, I can't say it's quite original, but I found it a fun read nonetheless (enough for me to translate it anyway).
And this is just for the record, but... I have serious troubles keeping myself from inserting lame Skywalker jokes/references whenever Taka is speaking/jumping. Being a translator can be hard on the most expected things :XD
And Persona3 (PS2 RPG) is fucking awesome! :shakefist
Enjoy~Eyeshield 21 chapter 284
Announcer : It... It’s been only 30 seconds since the start of the Christmas Bowl!
Announcer : With a touchdown born from the cooperation between Taka-kun and Yamato-kun,
Top left : First strike by the strong king!!
Board : Teikoku Alexanders - Deimon Devilbats
Announcer : The first points are for
Announcer : the Teikoku Alexanders!!
284th Down : Bloodline of sky riders
Public : Nice, Takaaa!!
Public : Yamatooo!
Riko : Ever since the Christmas Bowl’s history began
Riko : Teikoku won all the tournaments!
Riko : They’re showing how different to the core they are with the debuting Deimon
Riko : By making this shocking start...!!
Yamato : Sena-kun... Right now
Yamato : In that showdown between you and me
Yamato : You thought this.
Yamato : Even if it’s only speed
Yamato : Then I’m a little bit faster!
Yamato : Right?
Sena : Eeeh??
Sena : N-n-no, something like that, so full of self-confidence...
Sena : I may have thought that, I may not have thought that, I mean, I’m sorry, I mean...
3bros : You said that clearly yourself, you know.
Sena : Shin-san and I are definitely faster!
Suzuna : He’s acting so suspiciously...
Yamato : Haha! It’s alright.
Yamato : Rather than that...
Yamato : It’d be a problem
Yamato : If you couldn’t face me at least on speed.
Yamato : Oh yeah
Yamato : Everyone from Deimon
Yamato : Here is my “Absolute Prediction”
Yamato : In this match
Yamato : We won’t let you score a single point.
Yamato : The Teikoku Alexanders
Yamato : Will have the complete supremacy.
Toganou : Ha?
Juumonji : Haa!?
Kuroki : Haaaaa!!?
Hera : Daaahahaha!
Hera : So nicely said, Yamato!
Taka : But
Taka : It’s the truth.
Yamato : Haha!
Yamato : That’s because it seems Deimon is always catching up from behind.
Yamato : I want them to be 100% on fire quickly, you know?
Karin : They seem to be burning like that already...
Taki : Ahaha~ he certainly likes to bluff
Taki : Just like monsieur Hiruma, huh?
Hiruma : ... that’s not bluff.
Hiruma : It’s self confidence.
Hiruma : in the “Absolute Power”
Hiruma : Of himself and....
Hiruma : Honjou
Hiruma : Taka.
Hiruma : That aerial battle with the fucking monkey just now
Hiruma : It’s unbelievable
Hiruma : That distance
Hiruma : It’s not something a human can jump...
Monta : I’ll manage somehow!!
Monta : I will
Monta : surpass Honjou-san...!
Monta : He isn’t
Monta : looking at me.
Monta : I will defeat
Monta : Honjou Taka!
Monta : Even if I die... I’ll do it somehow.
Monta : Somehow...!!
Yamato : Isn’t that nice?
Yamato : Such a hot-blooded challenger.
Yamato : Shouldn’t you answer him, Taka?
Hera : Daahahahahaaa!
Karin : Are you serious?
Karin : Yamato-kun
Yamato : Haha!
Yamato : Battles shouldn’t be put off, don’t you think?
Taka : If Yamato wants to do that
Taka : I don’t mind, but...
Taka : Monta-kun... was his name, I think
Taka : Somehow
Taka : It seems my father... wants me to succeed his strength
Taka : by making my competitive spirit burn, but you know...
Taka : I’m not really
Taka : interested
Taka : by that guy.
Hera : Well... Quickly taking them down to a peg
Hera : isn’t bad either...!
Sena : This
Sena : kick...
Page 08-09 (spread)
Announcer : Th... This is!
Announcer : this daring short kick
Announcer : At the kick-off right after scoring points
Announcer : That big gamble for taking control of the ball once again...
Announcer : It’s an onside kick!!
Juumonji : Like we’d let you do that!
Kurita : Hurry up and get the ball, everyone!
Kuroki : Don’t make fun of us!
Yamato : Well
Yamato : It’s a shame but this is also an “Absolute Prediction”
Yamato : This ball
Yamato : Teikoku will get it!
Kurita : Hyaaaa, they’re here already!
Aki : Are you guys stupid or what?!
Aki : In a speed contest to get to the ball
Aki : Then there’s no way you can match
Aki : All the members of Teikoku that are fast sprinters!
Sena : Speed
Sena : contest...
Sena : If it’s speed...
Sena : Only
Sena : speed...!
Yamato : Fast!!
Hera : He’s not going for the ball...
Monta : Nice block
Monta : MAX!
Someone : The ball is
Someone : bouncing wildly!
Yamato : Using your speed of light to block me
Yamato : In order for the catching expert Monta-kun
Yamato : to go for the madly bouncing ball... huh?
Monta : My trump card
Monta : Devil Backfire!!!
Yamato : Sena-kun and Monta-kun’s
Yamato : famous combo!
Yamato : I’m surprised.
Yamato : That you were thinking
Yamato : the same thing as us...
Millennium Falcon flying~
Monta : A Devil Backfire
Monta : With the Japanese record at jumping
Monta : it’s like
Monta : you’re lightly laughing
Monta : at the result of my
Monta : ten years of catching...
Monta : Honjou
Monta : -san...
Millennium Falcon catching~
Referee : Teikoku
Referee : ball!
Announcer : The one who caught it is
Announcer : the Birdman
Announcer : Honjou Taka!
Monta : Wooooh!
Monta : Even though he wanted to deny it was desperate
Monta : His ten years of effort made him realize.
Monta : That intuition
Monta : For the first time he had
Monta : that painful intuition
Monta : I’m no match...
Mizumachi : nha!
Mizumachi : Next is Teikoku’s offense, so that means...
Yamabushi : It’s finally time!
Riko : The only girl in the tournament
Riko : And the ace quarterback of Teikoku
Riko : Koizumi
Riko : Karin!!
Karin? : Fuhihi, it’s finally my turn.
Karin? : My personality change on the field, you know.
Karin? : You bastards are worse than worms.
Karin? : I’ll tear your guts apart, so ready yourselves...!!
Left : An ominous aura... she doesn’t have that, but her true strength is frightening!!?
Hera : My turn.
Hera : You bastards [...] worms.
Karin : I wouldn’t say anything like that!
Karin (small text) : And what is that “fuhihi”?!
