Another silly error, another compile... >.<; GH Snippet

And since I have free stare time with no computer, I figured I can at least try writing up the scene between Lin and Mai from the manga. (The one where Lin laughs.) ^^;;

Yes, it has a very different feel from what Del Rey did. I haven't figured out what they're doing to get their translations yet. :/



Starting from pg 126 of the manga (Vol. 6; same in the English version)

...Uaah, its' only Lin-san here.

He's not exactly great for being alone with--...


M: Um
Lin-san,
I've finished dinner, so shall I take your place?

*polite smile*

M: Although being with him is better than having a ghost appear

L: No thank you.

M: Ummmm...
Where are Naru and the others?

L: Naru's with Oohashi-san
Yasuhara-san and Brown-san are checking to see how Professor Igarashi is doing.

M: Eh? Then you were here on your own? That's dangerous.
Naru'd said we weren't supposed to be alone, too.

*****

L: It's because I'd be fine.

M: Mrf
He's strong

What's he mean and how come he'd be fine?


...Uhh
which reminds me, so you're Chinese, eh?

L: ......What about it?

M: By... "what about it"
Um, I didn't mean anything...
by it...

Jeez,
You really are so surly--...

Sheesh

L: I hate Japanese people.

*****

M: ...Wh-
Why...?

L: Do you not know what the Japanese did in China in the past?
Not only do I hate Japanese people, but having to live surrounded by them is unpleasant.

*****

M: ...But
there were the Mongol Invasions from China too...
or rather, world history's filled with countries invading or being invaded!

L: So what Japan did should be considered acceptable?

M: That's not it.
I didn't say that.

...My heart's really pounding.

My throat's all tight

It's like when I'm really, really upset,

but this is different.


M: I don't mean that...

*****

It's sad

M: ---
...It's true

Japan did some awful things,
and I think it's important that we remember that.

Wrong is wrong after all.

But hanging onto past grudges like that... something doesn't seem right about it.

*****

If you do that, then the entire world would have to resent one another for all eternity.
That's just weird and I don't like that.

If you say that you h-hate me, then I can't help that,

but I don't want to be hated because I'm Japanese, a girl, or an orphan--

those sorts of things that I can't do anything about.

*****

*chuckles*

D-did I say something funny...?

L: ...You say the same thing, eh.

M: Huh...?

L: There's someone who told me the same thing in the past.

*****

Lin-san's laughing......

Whoa


L: I just remembered that.

M: Would that be... Naru?

L: As if.
When I told Naru, he only said, "Well, that's pretty stupid."

*Understands*

M: That guy would say that.

L: --Indeed,
I don't hate you.

However, it's difficult to get rid of automatic responses.
I do think it's foolish bringing problems between nations into personal relations,

*****

but you should learn that there are problems where you still can't do anything despite that.

M: ...Yeah.
I'll think about it.

L: I spoke rudely. I apologise.

M: No! Likewise, I'm sorry.



I wonder if I can do emails or try to do edits while the thing's compiling... I don't like doing anything too major because the system is a bit nasty. *sigh*
