This page is supposed to be the first page of this chapter and not the last page of the previous one, because I suck. Enjoy.
Hello Abyss - 32 - "End of a Fierce Fight"
Everyone... is being eaten...
"Riko! Are you safe!?"
"Are both of you okay?"
"I'm accustomed to the fifth layer's burden... you won't lose consciousness if you can see the force field-"
"...This is a bit bent, I'll fix it later."
"Reg, how's your wound?"
"...Not painful anymore, it's almost scary."
"The blood's solidified, like metal..."
"That pain is also reproduced, then..."
"What is it?"
"I feel it on the missing fingers..."
"The phantom pain, huh..."
"That arm... anyway, we need to retrieve it."
"And then... we need to have [whoever] made Reg reattach it..."
"And for that, we can't afford to just twiddle our thumbs."
"Now both of you, we need to prepare our strategy."
"Wait, Nanachi... they are already..."
"Let's go, immediately."
"The white whistle, Bondrewd... just how powerful is he..."
That guy's bad news.
"Around 10 years ago, a series of things previously unheard of was accomplished."
"A route into the inviolable was pioneered."
"A base that works even deep within the Abyss was secured."
"Those two things pushed beyond the stagnated delving techniques of the time."
"Right, there was also the incident where the flying insects filled up the hole, wasn't there."
"Bondrewd was the one who took care of it."
"He sounds like a good person..."
"Which part of him is bad?"
"His methods are also previously unheard of."
"He put relics and information of the Abyss through illegal channels..."
"It seems like he received huge foreign funding with the chemicals he produced through human experimentation."
"He performs his developments based on that."
"He poisoned every water source that he knew the insects were coming from."
"He burned every wildlife that disrupts the securing of the route, regardless of who might still be around."
"They would just get eradicated along with the surrounding environment."
Sit back and relax.
"He brought dawn to the entirety of accepted traditions and pride of the delvers, trampling over them."
"Truly, the [Lord of Dawn]."
"Why does he look like he's having fun."
"He's a white whistle enthusiast, after all..."
Come to think of it, he seems to be wanted overseas for an unclear criminal offense.
There were some who aimed for his bounty,
But every single one end up disappearing.
Now nobody would approach him, out of fear.
"I've seen some incredibly astonishing native wildlife,"
"I've also met delvers who has touched insanity.
But Bondrewd gave a different impression than all of them when I met him."
There is something strange about his character.
He feels like he's something that's merely masquerading, imitating humans.
If monsters truly do exist within the Abyss,
things like him would qualify as one.
Thank you TL Anon for bringing the highlight of the day!
"What did he do!?"
This is one that I can't seem to translate the kanji into a phrase that makes sense, back from the last volume.
"The one that cut your arm off... and burned through the immortal Mitty's eye. That's his weapon."
"Where did it came from? The machine on his elbow...?"
"That should be it."
"I totally thought it came out from his mask..."
"Come to think of it, Reg, when you were done in, there were only his henchmen weren't there..."
"Were they holding on to it...? Or are there multiples of it..."
"What could be the problem, hiding in such a place."
"Feel free to show your faces."
"Damn... so he can also read the flow of consciousness...!"
"He probably can't."
"I'm confident we can confront him directly."
"Bondrewd has been... somewhat tricked with, by myself."
"Possibly, via what he and the Praying Hands did."
"Their peeping, their sight of us."
"So, you're saying that you've been hiding things from their observation..."
"Nnaa- this is my eyes we're talking about, after all."
"The vital things are..."
You are interested in those children, aren't you.
This Praying Hand is one that you can trust.
He will protect you while you're outside.
Prushka, you already are a lady.
Please confirm of the situation with your own eyes and ears.
"What should I do..."
"You were right on top of the insects' nest."
"So I was planning to warn you not to provoke them, but..."
"To think that you showed me that you "knew"."
"As if you saw through it."
"I wonder if you can afford"
"To put on airs for what's next!"
"A light-stone bomb..."
"Making use of your sturdiness to commit into a suicide-bombing."
"You truly are a boy."
"We're not done yet...!"
"You aimed at the gaps of my armor, didn't you."
"Do you recognize it?"
"Those are Kuongatari larvae. They were just loitering around inside the head anyway. Go ahead and get devoured."
Take advantage of what he could only see during his peeping.
Surprise him with the items we have prepared.
Shower him with completely different things than what he'd know.
"Wait a minute! It'll be bad if he's read our lips."
"Don't worry about that."
"He couldn't tell that much, as to know what we say."
"He only saw my actions I... he also probably only peeped over momentarily."
"Currently, he's without with his [cartridge]... an equipment to deter the curse of the Abyss.
This is a good opportunity, but... we also have little on our hands."
"We can only fight him until his reinforcements come."
"It will be a short, decisive battle."
"Such a phenomenal destructive power..."
"I'm not done yet!!"
We have no idea how many of the [Sparagmos] exists...
So the only thing we can do is make sure he [doesn't fire it].
Its weakness is
A massive amount of water.
If a heat that is enough to burn the air is released underwater,
The water would vaporize and create a huge explosion.
"I see, how surprising..."
"In this situation, Sparagmos cannot be fired."
"Did you think of this?"
>"I'm confident we can confront him directly."
After meeting him I can confirm it affirmatively
>"Bondrewd has been... somewhat tricked with, by myself."
Bondrewd has been... somewhat deployed some trick on me
>"Their peeping, their sight of us."
"They peep into my vision."
>>"So, you're saying that you've been hiding things from their observation..."
"So,back then when you said you didn't found any things that shows they were observing us..."
Just below the water level of the Forward Operating Base
is the sixth layer, that allows no return.
You should be able to make him have a taste of it.
"How dare you did that to Mitty..."
"If you love experimenting that much,"
"Try it out yourself...!"
I knew I fucked that page royally, thanks a lot anon. I'm pretty sure I've fucked up the dialogues where Nanachi talks about that, so I'd be glad for any fix.
>He's just standing there saying Subarashi over and over
This is not gonna end well, isn't it?
"I'm letting you"
"Take your final breath...!"
"That whistle... blow it..."
"We'll go... beyond here..."
>Prushka, you already are a lady.
Prushka, you are about the age to become a lady
>>"As if you saw through it."
"So you already knew it..."
>They were just loitering around inside the head anyway. Go ahead and get devoured."
"There are nothing good inside your head anyway, Go ahead and let it get devoured."
>Surprise him with the items we have prepared.
Strengthen the his impression with the items we have prepared.
Hold back my emotions...!
"I forced you to do this unpleasant role..."
"Please, reply to me..."
Thank you very, very much anon.
Why are you saying that...
Why are you saying that!!!
"Don't leave me..."
"Papa's here, Prushka."
"I won't go anywhere."
"As long as I have your love."
"I am immortal."
"Don't mess around! What the hell are you!"
except she already had the context of "papa"'s goons trying to tear reg apart and even looking to put her in the vivisection chair.
this is, of course, all according to his plans for her. make her not think clearly about being stuffed into a box so he can keep harassing her friends.
"That reminds me."
"I haven't introduced myself"
"I am Bondrewd."
"Delver of the Abyss."
"The [Lord of Dawn] ------ as some people call me."
"You truly are wonderful."
"You've brought about a level of tribulation that we could not reach,"
"And paved the way for Prushka's completion."
"Tribulations deepen love. Wouldn't you agree, Nanachi?"
"Aah, how courageous and cute."
"I certainly desire"
"Everyone of you."
"Those are [Shakers(Curse Needles)], carrying the burden of the third layer."
"Please do not be alarmed, they will only slightly turn your viscera."
"You bastard... what's going on..."
"Why are there two of you..."
"Every single one of the [Umbra Hand(Praying Hand)] is but myself."
"Let us go, together."
"Why... why me..."
"The Abyss does not merely grants [curses]."
"There exists an effect that turns someone invisible to too strong a burden.
For convenience's sake,"
"I've called this phenomenon a [blessing]."
Cute, blessed child...
"You are deeply, spiritually tied to Mitty..."
"By love, so to speak."
"You are the sole successful instance"
"Where the body only received the [blessing of the Abyss]."
"Prushka almost woke up."
"I apologize, but I must take my leave."
"Feel free to come anytime."
"I shall welcome you."
"Please dispose of anything marked in crimson."
Do not doubt our technopriest lord of dawn and his prayers to bring dawn to the abyss. His fashion power is immeasurable to other white whistles, allowing him to appear as fashionable as he chooses.
"Want to see... the dawn..."
"Let us witness the dawn, together."
"Together will be nice..."
"On an adventure..."
"We shall be together, forever more."
Is there even any point of animating this series without reaching Bondrewd? I wish they could do 15 episodes or something so they don't have to rush into this arc.
And with this page, the chapter and therefore the volume comes to an end. Join us next time for the latest released complete volume, Volume 5, as the arc enters its climax.
Thank you for bearing with my horrible mistranslations, see you on the next chapter.
Native Zoological Danger Level Index
"Haven't showed up"
Although the Danger Level [Unprecedented] is originally made up as a joke,
the appearance of dangerous creatures exceeding imagination ended up making it an official classification.
Curse Needle (Shaker)
A processed relic product cut from the [Curse Steel] relic. Unknown grade.
[Curse Steel] is capable of inducing the burden of climbing upwards to those who come in contact with it,
a horrifying weapon concealed by Bondrewd.
And thank you very much, anon.
Next vol Nanachi will explain what a cartridge is. She mentioned he's vulnerable to the curse because he doesn't have his cartridge. Take a guess what they are based on knowledge of Nanachi.
>there are vermin who will defend bondrude after seeing him essentially admit to raising prushka entirely so he could chop her up and shove her in a box to take the curse for him so he can chase MOAR POWAR
>and seeing him get to work on cutting her up
even ozen's horrorface cannot encapsulate my hatred and disgust.
>implying I don't love him BECAUSE he's a complete asshole

How can anyone believe Bondrew is /ourguy/, when Ozen is clearly /ourmom/?
I'm still here faggots. MIA is too good to ignore it. I've just been busy. It's time to let new blood try their hand with this. Chapter 17 and 18 are being worked on.
I've also been looking at the HQ scans and the script of the first 4 chapters and I'll be redoing them soon™
I already miss Ozen. These kinds of women are rare in manga. There are some other series with semi-creepy girls but the authors are always trying too hard reducing them to that one hijink, Ozen was weird but aside from that she seemed to be an actual adult woman.
Ozen is the strongest white whistle, she could decapitate Bonedruid with a single slap.
Woah, that was an amazing chapter.
Thank you again, good anon.
Also, I've been reading the battles with this theme on background and it fits great. My hopes are high for the music of the anime.
To live is to die. It's better to die with purpose experiencing the full breadth of wonder life has to offer. There is no better place to see all of life in its pain and gifts than in the Abyss.
I didnt realize it until this, and I dont know if it was like this earlier, but its never shown his tail until >>156328799
the entire time it was obvious that it wasnt him
page five of chapter 18
Let me know if anything looks wrong
there were a couple things that sounded out of place so I changed them a bit
I also changed the monster's noise from a "vororo" to a "roar"
I left it on page three but I got some replies telling me to change it
It doesn't make too much of a difference to me but if people want one or the other I'll do that
I feel like the bubble with "Reg! it's that snake" and "the one you blasted" looks a little awkward, but let me know you see anything.
1st panel, 1st bubble
>be able to
That change in text width is too sudden and can be avoided, more or less:
2nd panel, 1se bubble
Put the "ones." in its own separate line. I think the text will look nicer, but I'm not sure. Judge for yourself if it does improve or not.
Most of the text is centered well enough. The text from the 3rd bubble form the 3rd panel could be moved a bit to the left.
>it's not a murrican monster
What the fuck are you talking about? WHat kind of sound is "vororo"? At least with "roar" you know it's a... you guessed it, a roar.
I'm kind of imagining it like a bit of a screeching sound, but that might just be me
anyway here's page 5 again
maybe change the bubble so that "it's that snake" is a little higher than "the one you blasted", since the natural direction of reading is generally top-to-bottom it would feel better. dunno how it looks though and you'd have to move the text from the center of each bubble
Damn right it does. "Reg! it's that snake!" has no problem. The problem lies with the line breaks of the 2nd part of that bubble. Now you could try fixing the line breaks or you could simply treat that split bubble as a single bubble. I'd take the lazy route myself.
panel 1, bubble 1
I'd put the punctuation in its own line.
panel 1, bubble 2
>nests itself on
Try to linebreak it like this:
on the third
Put the punctuation in its own line.
panel 4, bubble 2
The text is not centered. Use "all right" instead of "alright" and type it like this:
It is. My problem is that the reader might not understand what kind of sound that is.
>If the text is a balloon, it's the sound it makes
Stop making your own rules. Sfx and onomatopoeias are quite "unregulated" from what I've seen. Helck's author, for example, puts sfx for "jump", "dash" and other such things in bubbles, except when he doesn't. I remember that example quite clearly because I used to typeset that mango before starting with mia.
>No creature makes a roar that sound like "roar"
Yeah, welcome to the onomatopoeia world.
>they actually explained where all the fucking money is coming in for Bondrewd's high scale operations instead of just handwaving it as "I'm a white whistle, I ain't gotta explain shit"
I love that kind of attention to detail. So he's not only a brilliant scientist, an erudite scholar, a complete fucking badass warrior, a dedicated father, and a holder of one of the most prestigious titles in the world, but is also an internationally wanted criminal, smuggler, and black market dealer of extremely dubious technologies and materials? Holy shit this fucking guy.
I tried putting the ellipsis on its own line, but if that doesn't look good I'll take the lazy route
Well done. That looks good to me.
As for the first panel, please fix the 2nd bubble. And as for the first bubble, I told you to put the punctuation in its own line because it was overlapping with the borders, but now you've put "back" and "then" in the same line. Put them in their own lines.
>Well you're in luck then, Reg's cock is about that exactly. Do you like them phimotic? That'll be a bonus.
no. he puts on an act of being a good father for the purposes of fooling a child into caring about him so he can chop them up and shove them in a little box and suffer the curse for him.
So... you think Riko peeled his foreskin back when she was examining him way back when?
She probably also stroked him off good and hard to test if his reproductive systems were fully functional, probably played with his balls a bit too. She might have forced several ejaculations out of his virgin penis while he was unconscious just to be sure. P-purely for scientific reasons, of course.
Just what happens to a guy when someone threatens to torture and kill his girlfriend(s).
Apparently he was surged with an unbelievable amount of electricity and it made him go complete blind rage Guts mode. Don't know the exact details though or how it happened.
In the second to last panel I feel like I should maybe split the "opponent" with a hyphen
Also the "incin- era- tor" looks kinda weird in my opinion, but that was the best way I could think of besides just having it go way outside the bubble.
Let me know what else you see
It's fine. Maybe put the punctuation in its own line, maybe not. I don't know.
panel 4, bubble 2, part 1
The line breaks here are bad. Try to fix it by hyphenating words. "You" and "fell" should not be in their own line since they are too narrow compared with the rest of the text. Try to pay more attention to the text's shape, anon. You sometimes have to hyphenate it manually and add the line breaks manually in order to improve the text shape and readability.
You should also add an "and" at the end of this block of text and the word "after" should be "afterwards".
panel 4, bubble 2, part 3
I try avoid putting the "I" after a comma and at the end of a line because it hurts the flow of the text. Try splitting the text like this and see how it goes:
wake you up
panel 7, bubble 1, part 1
Hyphenate the word opponent.
And finally, if a sentence is split across multiple bubbles, keep the punctuation as it should be. Don't capitalize the first word of the bubble if it's not the start of a sentence. The first panel contains a single sentence, so the word "not" from the second bubble should not be capitalized. The same thing goes for the third and the last panels.
the translation was "That's... Riko's doing!!"
but that just sounds weird
I have to stop for a bit, but I looked ahead and there are a few more pages in this chapter with barely any text so I'll probably do those before going to sleep
I should be able to get finish this chapter by tomorrow
no promises though
I think I hit everything you mentioned
let me know though
That's one General Grievous lookin motherfucker.
Maybe future chapters shouldn't be posted on the MEGA if retards are going to post it on Batoto, though that's what always happens anyway when you post a public DDL link for "work in progress" scanlations.
I don't know if I love the blahblahblah font for the shout so I might go back and change that
here's page 12
thread seems pretty dead
I left the monster noise as Gyugi here
I might change it later, but this is it for now
>Maruruk rubbing ointment on Reg
I should make a crop of Reg from this page. Makes the perfect
I indeed would not have by myself but you guys give me hope
Glad to hear that. I'm swamped with work right now so it'd be a very slow process, but rather it be slow than not at all.
I thought nobody else was doing it though. If the typesetters end up dropping it I'll pick it up.
I think we got three typesetters at the moment. The reason the chapters are not on the usual sites is because they're not finished (redraws, lack of HQ raws) but the anon that did most of the typeset mentionned being tired of waitng for his redrawers and starting putting the chapters out after he finishes 5 and 6 completely
Okay now this has been bugging me a bit for a time, but I really have to ask, what is the Orphanage Director's connection to Ozen? There's too many similarities to be coincidence. Both are pale as hell and have black eyes, clad in dark flowing garments, both have a mentor role but are subtly creepy and inspire fear in children, but the two things that catch my eye specifically is that they both have the same exact impossible hair (though styled differently) and that they both punish their kids very sexually, usually in the extremely specific method of naked hanging. They even use the exact same rope knots and such. Might one be the mother of the other? Sisters perhaps?
I like it because it brings up the mental image of little Ozen before becoming a giantess white whistle being hanged naked as punishment. I mean, she clearly learned it from somewhere.
Redraw of chapter 5 almost end, i will finish this tomorrow
Meh. At first, seeing random pages, I thought it was edgy too, but now with the translations I realize very little of the violence is gratuitous. It'all'makes sense within its context.
It's true the series is very dark but I wouldn't call it edgy
The first couple chapters made it seem like her and Leader were going to become major characters, but now we're probably never going to see them again.
That's one thing I hate about this manga - once a character leaves the story, there's little chance of them ever coming back because of how the Abyss works.
I think it's necessary and if the story continues after they reach the bottom which it probably will as they shift gears into dealing with the next [OCCURANCE] of the abyss at the 2000 year mark then the author will have a lot of stories to tell.
I love the manga, but I still find it weird that Riko is supposed to get to the bottom of the abyss when she's just a 12 year old kid. Yeah, she has Reg, but we had that whole introduction with different ranks of the whistles and it all makes her look even weaker.
I don't actually anyone expects her to survive, only Lyza the absolute madman wanted her to have this Lovecraftian adventure and egged Ozen to prepare her for it.
Ozen mentioned some interesting things when she infodumped the main cast: The way to overcome the Sea (currently ongoing), the spooky ring of the seventh layer, and the Gatekeepers on the path to the very bottom.
I bet the Altar, the Ring, and the Gatekeepers are somehow related with one another.
Is Ozen the only white whistle that isn't completely fucking insane regarding the Abyss? She seems like the only one that doesn't give much of a fuck about the whole 2000 years cycle crap so far and more into comfy bullying underage people.
Not necessarily. She is pretty withdrawn right now but does conduct some research (as evidenced by her team of scouts) and does missions, too, like she did with Lyza.
But yeah she isn't as far gone as Bondrewd.
Maruruk using "boku" to refer as himself, his voice, his gait ... It's far easier to distinguish a man from a woman IRL than in chibi mangas.
Plus, he didn't exactly figure it out, he asked a question, and Maruruk's reaction told him everything.
Maybe sisters and Ozen just didn't age. The other one seems to be around the right age if Ozen was 15-20 when she descended, making the possible sister ~65 years old or something. Remember that she could be Ozen's little sister so she might be a bit younger.
Or she really is the mother and descended as well, which is why she's only ~60 now and not 80+ and it would explain the awkward hair.
Who is Mio by the way?
I totally agree but I also read too many manga to know that character usually lose much of their aura and charm once they join the protags or appear too often. The only thing I am really hoping for are a few extra chapters or flashbacks that'll tell us more about Ozen and her past or what she's currently doing maybe. Just like the few short scenes from the orphanage after Riko's descent.
Read the other ones so you can get hype with us and follow the chapters as they're posted live. It's fun.
Especially since good luck finding discussion threads after the last chapter has been translated.
I thought the same thing
I wanted to read as I typeset it but I just changed my mind and went on to 19
I wasn't ready
If dwelling in the third layer made Ozen into a reclusive molester and the fifth layer caused Bondrewd to go completely batshit psycho like he did, just fucking imagine where the plague doctor and the other whistle we know literally nothing about must be.
Sorry for the long-ass delay, such and such happened. Here's chapter 33 for you guys.
33 - "True Nature of the Mask"
34 - "Counterattack"
35 - "Disordered Memory"
36 - "Miniature Garden of Dawn"
37 - "Flower of Dawn"
38 - "Challengers"
Hello Abyss - 33 - "Nature of the Mask"
"Then Riko, you'd be the Lord of Children."
"I prefer something a little bit cooler."
"Then, the Lord of Forehead-Glasses!"
"Once you're a white whistle, what will you do?"
"You know, I thought that I want to meet my mother, who's become a white whistle."
"I wonder if that's actually the case..."
"My mother could just as well be not the one waiting. I know that, but"
"That just makes me even more and more excited..."
Waiting at the bottom
The left bubble of the top panel of page 5 read:
"Who exactly wrote the letter..."
"Why the curse exists..."
"Who made Reg, and for what purpose... I mean, even his penis can grow, you know?"
"The things I want to see, and the things I want to know just keeps piling on..."
"What's a penis?"
"Usually, it looks like this..."
"If Reg sees boobs or rubs Nanachi..."
"Ah! You mean like [Papa's rod]!"
"My wanting to meet mother, somehow... feels like its become just an excuse..."
"And a white whistle..."
"Can only be activated with a white whistle that's come from within."
"Now, I just want to have one, so that we can go down to the sixth layer..."
"But you know..."
"There's one thing that hasn't changed..."
"That I, together with them,"
"Want to always go on an adventure."
"This is a secret, though."
"I mean, this just sounds like I have no goal in mind."
So she's not even going to ask about the Papa's Rod comment? I get that it's not unusual for a daughter to see her dad's dick while bathing or whatever, but still.
"Riko sure is amazing."
"Even though you always look like you never think about anything."
"Wait, have you been making fun of me this whole time?"
"Riko, you're not going just because you want to meet your mother."
"You want to meet your mother, and also to go on an adventure together."
"Your real intention has crossed over your excuse, hasn't it."
"Is that so...!"
"So my desire to meet her hasn't stopped yet!"
"Actually, it's just started!"
>rubbing Nanachi gives Reg a boner
"You're cheerful again now."
"I want to to meet and talk to them both, as soon as possible!"
"Then, let's go! We have to find them quickly!"
"Just like before,"
"Smell the scent with the inside of your nose."
"Even without our sensations..."
"We can still follow Meinya's [zig-zagging]."
"Slowly, go towards it."
That second line is quoting Bondrewd from an earlier chapter.
"Riko... I think that you can actually become a white whistle."
"Getting hurt that badly deep inside the Abyss... afflicted by the curse as well. It should slowly change your body."
"Look, when I caught the fifth layer's curse..."
"My hair got wrapped around, and it wouldn't return."
"Can't hear anymore, huh."
"Slowly... slowly push forward."
"Just like that."
"Have always wanted..."
"A friend like you..."
"That's right, slowly..."
"That kid, Reg,"
"Is far more amazing than Papa's special grade* relic, right?"
"Be the first white whistle armed with a [Treasure of the Abyss]."
*Was this called a Greater Relic in another translation previously? I forgot.
"Don't look back."
A [flower of dawn] whithers when noon comes
"No matter how dark the Abyss becomes."
"It'll be fine. You're very bright, after all..."
"Want to go on an adventure, together!"
I don't mean the treasure, I mean the relic.
>"You want to meet your mother, and also to go on an adventure together."
"You want to become like your mother, and also to go on an adventure together."
>"So my desire to meet her hasn't stopped yet!"
"So it isn't the end after I meet her"
>"Actually, it's just started!"
"Actually, it's just the beginning!"
"Riko... they've left..."
"You mustn't move...! Your organs are hurting."
...From here onward
...What should we do...
Nanachi is in no state to think...
She's just been crying silently...
What was that monster...
His movements after he's moved to that body was just too much to handle...
"He... wants all of us... This is already..."
"We can't give up just yet...!"
"Something... There has to be something..."
"The Lord of Dawn..."
"Swapped his head..."
"Something... in the relic catalog..."
"If we can figure out the relic..."
"We can probably figure out the weakness too..."
I fear the day when I post a chapter and no other anons like you are present, thank you.
Seedbed of Heads
** Cold Phantom Genie? Any guesses on the romanization?
*** Shiny Smam? Any guesses too?
having a disconnect due to reading it as an unlabelled script. the second of those lines isn't being said by the person saying the first line, but rather is them remembering another's words, specifically riko recalling bondrude's comment about the gate to proceed deeper into the abyss.
"What's happened to Riko..."
"Riko has memorized almost the entire [relic catalog]... The relic catalog is... uhhh..."
"It lists plenty of relics that's been sold... It also updates each year..."
"Look at that."
"His remains... the head is all bunched up there..."
"Only the mask was taken."
"The head wasn't replaced...!? Could it be..."
"A relic that enables you to plant yourself within another person... enabling you to increase your own self...!"
"However, as the consciousness of themselves increases and mixes, the hosts grow insane... The original owner is passed around, repeatedly."
"Finally, it was removed from the catalog 15 years ago..."
"It was categorized as a [special grade relic]."
"White whistles are supposed to only have up to [first grade] relics, but Prushka brought it up."
"That kid, Reg, is far more amazing than Papa's special grade relic, right?"
"So that's the true nature of the mask...!"
"The [Zoaholic(Soul-Slave Machine)] is shaped like a bottom that's at least the size of a huge room..."
"Am I wrong..."
"Nnaa... that ass-like relic... could it unexpectedly be related to him?"
"There's something that I'm curious about."
"...Do you guys remember what that Praying Hand said in the Garden of the Flowers of Persistence...?"
>"White whistles are supposed to only have up to [first grade] relics, but Prushka brought it up."
Uh, then who gets them? What's the point of being a WW if you can't have the best relics legally.
governments, most likely. you should know by now that rulers keep the best of everything for themselves. you think the Unheard Bell that stops time was given to charity? the treasures of the abyss literally shift the balance of power in the world.
elite soldiers are still soldiers i.e order-following grunts in the bigger picture. it's just that the way this world is set up they have a much easier time not giving a shit and doing their own thing regardless
That person is currently unavailable.
The method to cross layers is rather prone to troubles.
"Doesn't it... mean that he can transfer his consciousness even without his mask,"
"But it will go awry if he jumps over the force field, does it?"
It could be
That the mask is merely a symbol
Of the [Lord of Dawn]
[Bondrewd the Novel]...
Then, it would serve to
[imprint the presence of a father]
to that sheltered girl, Prushka...
"So why that bunch who was roughing Reg up was strangely dumb is...
No... there's also the possibility of them swimming.
Well anyway, [Zoaholic(Soul-Slave Machine)] wasn't it?"
"That thing's suspicious... it's certainly something that fiend would like."
"As expected of Nanachi! You're the brain of our team!"
"But... it could also be wrong though?"
"But! It's worth checking out!"
You guys just won't give up
If I just break inside,
then I won't be able to face Mitty.
"Yeah, that's right."
"The [Zoaholic(Soul-Slave Machine)]... something that huge can only be hidden in that one place."
"If you can break it open, it should be blown away by the shock..."
That thing should be backwards. Soul-Slave Machine is the name and Zoaholic is the other name, just like Treasure of the Abyss and Aubade.
"Reg's energy source is electricity!"
"You were knocked out, but the electricity was able to revive you. However, it took a massive amount of electrical power..."
"After checking things out, not only the orphanage, but most of Orth was out of power..."
"Isn't that the town on the surface!? You're crazy..."
"You'd be a good match for Bondrewd..."
Good thing you only needed to write that you seriously reflected on it.
"But... it might be that Reg's missing memories was because of it..."
"If Reg forgets about us..."
"The incinerator is absolutely necessary against him."
"The last time I fired it, I passed out about 10 minutes after... The fight will be decided with how much shots can hit him."
Alright anon, will do from now on.
I don't know if I get it. So the mask he uses isn't actually the relic and the real relic is hidden inside the base?
If that's the case then what the hell is the mask and why does it work like the relic?
>>No... there's also the possibility of them swimming.
"No... there's also the possibility of him just letting them do whatever they want"
There maybe a better way to translate 泳がされる
"And it's alright, Riko."
"I won't ever forget about you."
"The Forward Operating Base gets its electricity from the unstoppable whirlpool, which rotates itself."
"The generated power is less than that of the town on the surface."
"However... a sizable amount of recovery should be possible..."
"I peeped. You won't get the method to steal the electricity without words and gestures."
"Riko, write it down and double-check with Reg."
"This is it, both of you. This sort of place won't be the end..."
"We're taking back our adventure."
She's talking about another reason that can possibly explain why they were basically retards, so it has to make sense in that context. Yours can work, I think, but are there other ways to translate 泳がされる?
Bunny Cunny gives me all the strength I need.
Except for accuracy and proper English, that's another matter entirely.
