    hi. Thanks to everyone who says thanks and gives advice it makes doing this job worthwhile. Without my express permission I do not permit my trans to be used in scanlations. Unsure areas are underlinned.

    As always, pointing out mistakes, typos, or things you just don`t like (or that dont sound good) will help me to come up with a better trans next time. smile-big



    Page 1
    TEXT: What is the "best possible move" that Shikamaru worked out?!
    H: Guuu
    SFX sliding sounds

    K: that Kagemane jutsu...Is it that the opponent is forced into doing the same moves?


    Page 2
    325: There won't be an after

    TEXT Shikamaru forces Hidan!!

    H: He's worked out the trick!
    K: What are you going to do?
    S: Drive that guy out of the weird circle drawn on the ground.
    S: If I do his jutus...his curse will be broken.


    Page 3
    K: What do you mean?
    S: That guy's huge weapon...
    S: ...has three scythes attached to it
    S: From the configuration, rather than being a weapon designed to inflict grave damage on a opponent, it's intended to widen his attack range.
    S: Anyway, it's designed just to hit the opponent and make, whether it be large or small, some kind of external wound.
    K: ?
    S: In other words, if it can cause one hit...
    S: Just by doing that, it contains some kind of jutsu which can finish off the enemy.
    K: The "curse"?
    K: But, how are the wound and the curse related?


    Page 4.
    S: By blood.
    S: In order to link yourself with an opponent you wish to curse
    S: that opponent's blood...You need to get that blood inside your own body.
    K: I saw him lick the blood!
    K: So that's it! Cause your opponent an injury
    K: And if even a little blood adheres to the scythe...
    K: Then you can "curse" your opponent.
    A: ....
    (I see)

    Page 5
    S: His body changed color after he licked the blood.
    S: But that's not all, there is one more simple condition in order for the "curse" to begin.
    K: One more...?
    Ka: impressive little brat.
    S: Just earlier that guy ignored Cpt. Asuma's Katon and just took the full force of the impact.
    S: While doing that he hurried back into the circle drawn on the floor, right?
    S: then said "the ceremony begins"
    S: Then shouted "the preparation is complete"
    S: I'm able to speculate that the he finally completed the "curse" jutsu when he got back into the circle.

    Page 6.
    H: This brat...
    S: You know what? You shout far too much.
    K: I never thought shikamaru was this capable.

    Page 7.
    H: YOOOOUUUUU LIIITTTTLE SHIIIIITTTT!
    H: You bastard, after this I'm gonna cut you up, rip you into piece, tear you apart!
    S: There won't be an after.
    H: Uh!
    S: He's out!
    A: Right!
    A: let's check and see if the jutsu really is broken.

    Page 8.
    S: Alright!


    Page 9.
    H: Bastard
    H:ugh!
    H: I can't move.


    Page 10:
    S: Pant pant pant
    S: This is my limit! I can't hold him any longer.
    A: Good job... shimkaru.


    Page 11.
    H: Kakazu, give me a hand.
    H: OY! GET A FUCKING MOVE ON!(is this only a UK expression?-BL)
    K: See, I told you not to let your guard down.

    Page 12. 13

    Page 14.
    S: Phew
    K: You did it!

    Page 15.
    A: We did it...
    K: Still one left.
    Ka: If you wanted help, you should have asked for it sooner.

    Page 16..
    H: Ask for it sooner!? You were too fucking slow Kakuzu.
    H: You did that on purpose, didn't you?

    Ka: Who was it who said "don't interfere" right at the start, huh?
    Ka: And whatsmore, are you really in a position to be shouting and pushing your luck?
    A:....
    H: ha ha ha, you've got a point. Sure it was me who said not to interfere from the start
    H: But that don't mean I want you taking the piss or getting all smug.
    K:....

    page 17:
    H: Kakuzu...
    My body....
    You couldn't go and pick it up for me, could you?

    H: OY KAKUZU! MY BODY! I TOLD YOU TO PICK UP MY FRIKKIN BODY!
    K: This way's lighter.

    TEXT Grotesque fearful humour.This is the man who "can't be killed"

    Hahah! Shikamaru didn't do a single thing that hadn't been predicted already! Save for analyzing the weapon range thingy. The rest people saw from a mile away! Well, save for the talking head. Which is pretty hilarious. XD *imagines Hidan's head being placed in a glass bowl and getting fed occasionally*

    Wow. Clearly, everyone who predicted "if he leaves the damn magic circle, the spell won't work" is a super-genius with an IQ over 200.

    The humor in this chapter was priceless. I love it.

    @Brucelee - Get a move on* is used in the States, too. 'Take the piss' is veddy british tho (I know what it means and use it sometimes but then I listen to bbc radio every day so..), it's not used in the states (but it's clear what it means from the context).

    lol im soo happy with the end few pages :D not that im that kind of guy, but after hidan getting his head chopped off and still being alive, well i guessed that :D im sure many others did too, it was pretty easy to spot really, i mean if kakazu cant kill hidan its not cause he wouldnt have tried to decapitate him. im sure kakazu tried just about everything he could and yet hidan still lived, so thats why i said any kind of conventional killing ie stabbing, decapitation, burn alive etc etc etc would not work. but i said we could see another shiki fuuin soon :p lmao if kishi wants asuma to know the jutsu that his dad used to fight off oro :D

    Humor is hard totranslate though.

    2 parts i need help with.

    1.taking the piss.

    Is this UK only? Would would Americans say? What would a tough guy say? I need a "voice" for Hidan.

    "stop ragging on me?" "stop making fun of me?" any ideas?

    2. Get a move on.

    Same problem. how does a US speaker compel a person to act more quickly? A person like hidan "hurry the fuck up!" "move your ass" etc?

    Hidan should sound rude, cocky and too proud to ask for help.

    So you hit the nail right on! :amuse good job!

    Yeah, beating him was actually quite obvious. This now makes me think everyone in Konoha has an iq of 2. But thanks for the fast translate.

    "Get a move on" is perfect. It translates well for US-english too, means the same thing over here, so that's great as is. Taking the piss for a tough guy voice you could do a lot of ways. Maybe 'yanking my chain' 'f*cking around' (or dicking around),something like that. Or just keep with something like 'taking the piss' and let the US audience broaden their vocabulary a little, nothing wrong with that =)

    And yeah I love your trans of 'this ways lighter', priceless.

    Yeah, this translation style is perfect. If you used super tough guy words, it'd probably sound too aggressive at this point. The "voices" you are using now suit the situation perfectly - they're both partners in Akatsuki that have probably spent a lot of time travelling and killing together, so there's a lot of friendly insulting between them as their bond, and a particular casual feel when they fight, especially given their confidence, skill and indestructibility.

    Maybe in the next chapter or two they'll get more serious and you'll need to use stronger words, but at this stage it fits perfectly.
