EDIT 17/08: Entirely Translated
EDIT: Seriously? Back when I translated Dandelion, even after translating half a chapter Novel Updates didn’t accept it, but here, I just did 15% and someone tossed it on NU without precising it was just one part and it’s accepted? How does NU works?
Hi! So, it’s been a week since the last post, and I translated 15% of the chapter. Yeah, I just can’t bring myself to translate and waste my time, I’m too self-centered to be translator.
Anyway, when you think about the fact I started because I wanted money, I still did 7 chapters without receiving anything, so I guess I can be considered generous in a way.
My only regret is that I don’t like going back on my words, and even if I didn’t promise anything, I did say I would translate until chapter 5. That why, even if I say I’m stopping the translation, in truth I’ll just do it at a pace so slow that I don’t know when the chapters will be up. Like this, I’m keeping my words to translate until chapter 5.
And now, back to Isekai Tensei Mono. As much as I have mixed feelings about it, it’s still entertaining and have really good moments, even if the rest of the time it isn’t as interesting. I’m at chapter 296 (319 in Narou’s number), so I’ve a little less than 100 chapters to read. After that, I guess I’ll try to translate a little more of chapter 4 before doing something else.
the 15% of the chapter I translated with the illustration.
Chapter 4 – Pretty
「Haahaa… I, I made it through something terrible…」
After somehow shaking off his pursuers, the boy lied down in a 『大』 shape, breathing roughly.
Having that group of Machos who shone with a black luster chase after him was a nightmare.He didn’t think he had experienced such a fright even when he encountered a group of Giant Worms or Giant Sand Wolves.
Looking up while lying down, the sky started to slowly grow brighter.
The visit of the morning was nearing, and the small and early-to-rise birds started to sing.
In the end, he still had no clue about Kisaragi’s whereabouts.
This truth weighed heavily on his tired body and mind.
「Please wait, Kisaragi」
He couldn’t rest like this forever. Slapping his body, the boy slowly stood up and looked around.
He didn’t know his exact location, but after having been chased it seemed he ended up leaving the town area and reached a plaza in the outskirts.
Looking around slowly, in the pale darkness, the shadow of a standing person entered the corner of his field of vision.
The boy jumped up in panic and grasped the hilt of the katana on his waist.
However, he immediately relaxed his fighting stance, and his hand swung loosely in the air.
The boy murmured, engrossed with the thing that was reflected in his field of vision.
It was a girl.
Long silver hair as if the trails of shooting stars had been tied up together. White porcelain skin. Deep blue eyes. A blue dress with gold thread embroidery, and a lapis lazuli embed on her chest. (TL: First, sorry, I mistranslated that her hair was tied up in the first chapter. I fixed it. Second, help with the last sentence. By the way, for those who don’t know, a Lapis Lazuli is a small semi-precious stone. You can see it in the illustration, between her two mountains)
It was different from the Nobles. So far, he had never seen a figure so noble.
While the boy was fascinated for a moment, the girl was looking up at the sky, as if searching for something inside the dawn.
Suddenly, the girl turned towards the boy and their eyes met.
Flustered, the boy cast down his eyes and corrected his posture.
The girl smiled pleasantly and walked towards the boy.
「Do you have some business with me?」
「Ah, no, so-sorry. It was rude of me to stare. I was curious about what you were looking at」
The girl unintentionally smiled seeing the flustered boy.
「I was searching for a star」
「Yes, a star. A particulary big red star which appears at dawn. The country where I was born is in the direction of this star」
It was understandable from the beginning but, as expected, the girl wasn’t someone from this country.
「Even after seeing me, you aren’t surprised?」
She calmly came to talk to the boy. Because she didn’t know.
The boy felt like he was deceiving her for not telling her he was a scorned existence. He thought it wasn’t fair.
Therefore, unconsciously, such words came from his mouth.
The girl looked at the boy with a blank expression.
「Because, coming from the outside of this Fortress City, my appearance is different from the Nobles…」
「I’m sorry. I don’t really see the difference」
To the boy’s ears, the girl didn’t mind who he was. That was what he hoped he heard. Somewhere, a small light was lit. That sort of feeling.
If it was her, he thought he could ask about Kisaragi.
「What are you doing in this place?」
「I am searching for my little sister」
「Your little sister?」
「Yes, her name is Kisaragi and she is 12. Do you know her?」
「I’m sorry. I don’t know her」
「No, please don’t wo-『Found him!』」
Just when the boy became flustered by the apologetic look of the girl, he heard a familiar voice coming from the entrance of the park.
In the center of the crowd of black lustrous muscles, a portable shrine was shouldered, and a head with dumplings was gallantly standing on it while throwing out her chest. Needless to say, it was the Count of Saratoga, Mio. (TL: Portable shrine: http://cdn.c.photoshelter.com/img-get/I00007PqQwVf8yZk/s/750/750/20110315-DSC2628a.jpg)
By the way, Kirie was lying down in the rear of the portable shrine, as if having pleasantly fallen asleep.
「It’s a lie…」
The boy dropped his shoulders with a dejected look.
「Ah, Mio-dono. Good morning」
He was surprised by the friendly greeting of the girl standing next to him to dumplings head.
「Oh, I was wondering who it was, but isn’t it Lord Seldis? Right on time. This man is a degenerate. Could you help a little?」
「I am not a degenerate!」
「No, no, just before, didn’t you ask 『Guhehe, little miss, right now, what kind of panties are you wearing?』 while thrusting a blade at me?」
「I didn’t ask that! Please, don’t make things up」
「You said such a thing?」
The girl made one step back.
「I didn’t say it!」
「The color of my panties is?」
The broadly smiling Mio, the boy noticing his own verbal slip, and the girl surprised by the boy’s statement.
A momentary unpleasant silence. A single sweat drop streamed down the boy’s cheek.
「Fuhahahahaha! Caught you, degenerate」
Mio broke the silence with a lound laugh.
「No, that, that’s wrong!」
The boy panicked.
Using his panic as a chance, the girl pressed her index finger on the boy’s forehead and muttered softly:
「Sleep in the abyss (Sonno Morto)」 (TL: In this novel, Magic Spells are in Italian. The normal text is in Japanese, and between the () is the Furigana)
Like this, the boy lost his words, and he suddenly felt his eyelids become heavier. Sleepy. Inside the illusion that his whole body was bound by chains, he was attacked by an irresistible sleepiness.
「It’s all right… But I think it would be better if the misunderstanding was solved」
Inside his receding consciousness, the boy heard the girl’s voice.
Similar to the sound of a bell. While feeling comforted by the girl’s voice, the boy fell towards her.
「I’ll ask her not to do anything cruel, so please, don’t worry」
Just before his eyes closed completely, the girl who was looking at his face with an affectionate expression said:
