GH spoiler translation, but I happened to read this section and couldn't help laughing. ^^; If you don't know the final spoilers for GH (which you won't if you're only following the anime) proceed to the cut at your own risk. This deals a bit with Naru's family (attitude towards family?) if you will... ^^; S=Masako; M=Mai

(From Akumu ga Sumu Ie--White Heart Books)



Naru: "After going through all that difficulty to find his body, not only couldn't you distinguish his features, he was so badly decomposed that he was little more than a waxy mummy. Not only couldn't the body be used to determine the cause of death, it was unusable for certain special examination either. And on top of that, an autopsy was impossible."

Hirota grit his teeth.

N: "Wasn't the Japanese law enforcement supposed to be the best in the world? At least if the missing persons report were immediately accepted and his body found quickly, an autopsy could've been done!"

"Now, now," Takigawa cut in between the two.

T: "There's no point saying that now, right? If you had an autopsy done and discovered the cause of death, then what? It's not like you're likely to get any strong leads to discover who'd......"

N: "That's not what I'm talking about!"

Takigawa swallowed the words he was about to say when he was glared at so murderously.

T: "O-okay......"

N: "Gene was a genuine psychic. What part about him saw spirits? What part of him could hear them? If a thorough autopsy were done, it might've been possible to find a clue about it. And these guys completely destroyed that one and only chance!"

Everyone there could only think that this was what it meant to be struck speechless.

"Umm......" Takigawa scratched his head. He looked awkwardly at the doorway. "I think I'll go look in on Lin-san and see how he's doing."

He was all too aware that he wasn't being very natural, but he couldn't think of anything else to say, so it couldn't be helped.

"Back to work, back to work..." Mai said following Bou-san with a fake smile on her face. And Masako followed her.

T: "You're right."

S: "Me too."

The three of them hurriedly left the room as though to escape and went down the hall towards the base.

"......What did you think... of that?" Mai asked the other two quietly.

(T:) An amazed voice replied, "In other words, he's that--a mad scientist."

S: "......From the bottom of my heart, I'm very glad that I'm not part of Naru's family."

T: "I feel the same way......"

M: "Me too."

Any way they looked at it, it wasn't very pleasant to think of family watching vigilantly for their chance to dissect them.

Coming all the way to Japan to search for his brother who'd disappeared. Opening an office, nominally working and searching various places throughout the country and finally finding the body after 1.5 years. Here they'd been impressed that he'd felt so strongly about his family to go to that extent.

T: "--Hey? If by chance we were to collapse and end up dying on a case, what do you think he'd do?"

M: "He'd do it, wouldn't he?"

T: "He'd probably do it......"

S: "I think so......"

The three of them sighed.

S: "The one place I don't want to die is in front of Naru."

M: "Likewise."

T: "Me too."



I agree with the others. I'm very happy I'm not related to Naru. ^^; (Not to mention not being psychic helps.) :P

I still have to write up the scene about Yasuhara-san and tea. :P

Naru and Mayuri Kurostuchi would have so *much* to talk about!

Let's hope they never meet.

Nope. Sadly, there's presumably nothing about an S2 for GH. >.>

I LOVE IT! That's so funny. No wonder Gene called Noll an idiot scientist at the end of the Evil Spirits novels. I think it adds a wonderful dimension to his personality. A wonderfully warped dimension. :D

Thank you for the write up! I still want to read about Yasuhara and the tea.

And maybe could you glance at draft five of the essay? Hopefully I'll need to post it in a few days because the sub will be out. :D I think I've got the draft mostly settled now thanks to your changes although I'm still not sure I got the section on how Lin ended up going to Japan correct.

GH - Nevermind

Y'know, I start to try to actually like Naru, and then he goes and does something like this. *shakes head*

TEA! *pleeeeze face*

*laughs* He's a silly one all right. ^^;; BTW, fair warning, what you got out to me yesterday will hopefully be bouncing back to you some time today. :P (I had to laugh at some of those "ewwww"'s. ^^;;)

Tea, please! (in a different sense). It's too early to be up; especially without any caffeine made yet. >.<;

I'll try writing that one up today/night. ^o^

Okay, then I'll continue with timing and do all 3 at once. Yeah, this is extra creepy without the visual - I have a vivid imagination. O_o

*pours tea*

Shall I traumatise you with the fact that I've got up, got dressed, gone to work, and returned home already? If not for the fact that I haven't e-mailed the notes yet, I'd be completely done for the day.

*blink* *blink!* Almost done for the day?! *envy* *envy* *envy* Oh, wait. Was today one of those horrific 6AM days?

*poke* *poke* screencaps? *pleads* *pokes*

Tea! ^o^

First, thanks for the translation. ^_^

It is somewhat funny and at the same time very disturbing. I'm not at all surprised that he did say that. Oh, well.

*complete love and worship* For translating this, our only chance of finding out what didn't happen in the anime, (and those many, many, many other things you've translated thus far from Saiunkoku and beyond), I *adore* you!

I kind of like Naru in his evil scientist mode. ;) I do wonder what else the guy is thinking though. I mean, the best defense for a psychic, at least as Naru seems to be demonstrating, is to be as unsympathetic to everything as possible, literally cut off any emotional ties that can be cut. I hardly think (based on previous translations) he doesn't feel anything. It's more like he prefers not to. The sarcasm and the extreme logic is there to make up for a deficiency in something else. In his funny way, I wonder if finding his twin's body isn't closure as well? Or do the books do something with that too?
