Vagabond 180

[Seinen] Vagabond 180 by Siedhr

+ posted by Yumi-Chan as translation on Jul 20, 2006 16:13 | Go to Vagabond

-> RTS Page for Vagabond 180

This is the draft translation from French for the first chapter of the 21st volume. Any suggestions will be highly appreciated as my French is a bit rusty.

I had a bit of trouble with the sounds, some I've left untranslated, others I had no idea what they meant. My notes will be in blue.

This is a translation for KO-Scans and therefore it is not free for use.

Vagabond v21 Chapter 180

Page 001 Cover - I think it's the text on page 000c of the Japanese raw

1605, fin de l'an 9 de l'ere de Keicho. Arrive a Kyoto un Musashi metamorphose par rapport a l'annee precedente. Commence alors son combat mortel contre Seijuro Yoshioka, son ennemi juree.
1605, the end of the 9th year of Keicho. Musashi arrives at Kyoto a changed man compared to the year before. And so begins his deadly fight with Yoshioka Seijuro, his sworn enemy.

Page 002

Some stuff that needn't be translated since it's in English in the Japanese raw.

Page 003 for the French scan/ 003 for the Japanese raw

Il neige...
Does it snow…

Tant que cela, a la capitale, chaque annee?
…That much in the capital each year?

Page 004 / 004

Je suis Denshichiro...
I am Denshichiro…

Le fils de Kempo Yoshioka.
The son of Yoshioka Kempo.

Naguere, je me presentais ainsi, pour renforcer ma propre image.
Not long ago, I used to use my father's name to make myself seem stronger. - Not the best phrasing.

Page 004-1 / 005

Aujourd'hui, je me bats pour proteger son nom.
But today I'm fighting to protect his legacy.

Page 005 / 006-007

Page 006 / 008-009

Tous a la capitale
All Roads Lead to Kyoto - The literal translation is "everybody in the capital", which sounds like crap. My translation is a play on words and it reffers to the saying "All roads lead to Rome" - Rome used to be considered the center of the civilised world in ancient times, in the days the great Roman Empire.

Page 007 / 010

Remontons d'une dizaine de jours
Let's go back around ten days ago.

Kyoto, automne de l'an 9 de l'ere de Keicho (1605)

That famous Miyamoto Musashi?

Lequel est le plus fort?
Which is the strongest?

Pourquoi se lancer dans une si terrible action?
Why do something so foolish? - This is not exactly a translation, it's more like my impression of what it says. Any suggestions (zindryr) most welcome.

C'est le destin pour quelqu'un ne dans cette fameuse maison
It's the destiny of one born in that famous family.

Bah... ce Miyamoto a beaux etre fort, il va regretter de s'en etre pris aux Yoshioka.
Bah… this Miyamoto better be strong, otherwise he will regret tangling with /taking on the Yoshioka.

C'est vrai que de se voir nomme ainsi en adversaire... de ce gens.
It's true, though, that to see oneself considered a worthy opponent by these people…

On doit se sentir bien aise.
Would make one feel flattered.

Tais-toi donc!

You'll get yourself killed. - I'm not sure of this line. Help!

Forcement, si j'abats Denshichiro, l'aine interviendra?

Aaah, toujours le meme!
Aaah, you're still the same!

On parle de vous en maints endroits aujourd'hui, mais...
There's talk of you in many places today/everywhere, but…

Page 011-1 / 019

C'est n'est pas en vous prenant aux Yoshioka que votre reputation sortira grandie
Your reputation will not grow by taking on the Yoshioka. / It's not by taking on the Yoshioka that your reputation will grow.


Don't know what this is, it's the sound the sake makes in Seijuro's flask.

Continuer comme ca jusqu'au dernier...
And to keep going until the last…

Ca fait de vous la meilleure lame du pays, non?
Makes of you the best sword of the country, right?

Page 013-1 / 023

... !!

Ha la la!
Oh, wow!

Je n'en reviens pas
I can't believe it! - Dattebayo, couldn't help the Naruto joke.

Hm... vous etiez un peu plus raisonnable il y a un an
Hm… you were a bit more reasonable a year ago.

Page 014 / 024


Sound of ink being poured into the wooden case.

Je connais bien peu le monde, mais ne vivre que pour la sabre m'a fait comprendre...
