B2: Stand up, Nico…
B3: Nico Miles!
B1: See? I told you it’s still impossible for your body to handle a long sword, Nico
B2: To begin with, it’s still too early for you to learn swordsmanship, Nico
B3: No, it’s better to train him as early as possible, just like trades
Nico has the potential inside him like me
B5: So make sure to protect your big sister, alright?
H: Nee… chan…
B1: Thank God
Sfx: Rattle Rattle Rattle
B2: Are you awake now?
B3: Here, drink some water…
H: Thank God… Nee-chan is…
B4: I see… So those…
B5: …Were just a dream…
Sfx: Rattle Rattle
B2: Really, what a pain in the ass…
Picking up a random brat like that…
Sfx: Rattle Rattle
B3: You can’t blame her, you know? If her son was still alive, he would have been around that kid’s age after all…
Sfx: Rattle Rattle
B5: What are you implying?
B6: Anyways, we’ll leave him at the next town’s church, you hear me?
B1: What a terrifying devil’s luck
B2: To think that he got picked up by a good merchant…
After he collapsed on the road at that time…
B3: Well, not like you’re a normal person either as you watch over that kid’s fate even now…
B4: What can I say, it’ll weigh on my conscience if that brat died by the road side just because he chased us
This is tiring…
B6: What are you talking about? You spend half the time on my back anyways
B7: But I do walk the other half of the time, no?
H: Blade of Judgment
B1: I believe it’s about time you reached your limit, yes?
B2: To think that brat followed us for a whole 2 days without giving up…
B5: So you can already act like a proper animal now, huh…
Come on, sit down
B6: But I guess we can finally resume our search for a proper duelist again now…
B8: I wonder about that
Sfx: Rattle Rattle
B9: Because that carriage is getting attacked right now
Sfx: Rattle Rattle
Sfx: Gallop Gallop
Sfx: Rumble Rumble
B1: Nee-chan? What happened..?
B3: Please stop!
B5: Where are the girls?
B6: Only an old hag here!
B7: I told you to not kill the horses, you moron!!
B1: A crested sword?
B2: And a shoulder plate with ornaments?
B3: Hurry up and open their cargo!
B4: Check what’s inside!!
B6: Ugh, what is this smell!? Damn, isn’t all these manure!?
B7: Impossible! So you’re telling me that these guys are carrying all of these shit like it’s something important!?
B8: Dammit!! There is only shit here too!
B9: Hey, what does this mean?
B10: No, wait… I’m pretty sure they have a pretty sum of money with them!! They must have done something..!
B12: These guys are… Bandits..!!
B1: Oh right… I was following those two, and…
B3: Get a grip, me!
B4: This is the reality! I have to run away..!
B5: I have to run away or they’ll kill me!!
B6: Hurry up and run!!
B8: Just run away from here!!
B9: Huh? Who is this bitch talking to!?
B10: You dirty bitch!!
B1: Tell us!!
Sfx: Smack Smack
H: Could it be, that woman…
H: Covered me with this cloth so they wouldn’t see me..?
H: So the water that time too…
H: Was also that woman’s doing..?
B3: That woman…
B4: To a stranger like me…
B7: To a stranger like me..!
B1: She saved my life!!
B3: What!? A child!?
B4: Why aren’t you running away!?
B1: Hear me!!
B2: I have the determination to prove the truth behind your barbaric deeds in a flesh to flesh duel!!
B4: What’s that?
B5: Is he looking down on us?
B6: Please… Take the bait…
B7: Take the bait..!
B1: Hey, brat… Are you seriously challenging me to a Judicial Duel?
B2: Even after seeing what I am capable of?
B3: As I thought… This guy is different from the others
B4: It’s a bit dirty, but he has valuable equipment with him…
B5: There’s no doubt… This guy is a former knight!!
Sfx: Rumble Rumble
B1: I’m astonished. To think that he threw his glove like that…
Seems like he brought up a Judicial Duel in the middle of such a chaotic situation
B2: He has devil’s luck with him, plus a not bad bluff ability and insight to boot
That brat sure is talented as a con artist
B3: Every knight dreams of ending his life in a duel after all
B5: That bandit…
B1: Looking at his arm, there’s no doubt that guy had his fill of bitter experiences with Judicial Duels in the past
Of course he would be baited with such provocation
B2: What worthless pride…
B3: It sure is…
B4: Hey, take away that rock over there!
B5: You over there! You didn’t connect the line properly!
B6: Alright! I guess this is good enough
B8: Scratch scratch
B1: Brat, you know the rules right? This battle won’t be over until one of us dies…
Or if one of us leaves this circle
B2: It’s the purifying water. Drink it or dash it over yourself
B3: Sigh, Boss’ duel lover bad habit kicked in again…
Sfx: Blub Blub
B3: Sigh, how troublesome…
B4: Now… Normally, we would need an eyewitness for a duel, but…
B3: It’s a wolf!!!
B4: Shit, did it come over because it sniffed the blood!?
B5: Hey, stupid brat!!
B6: Are you looking for death!? It’s a wolf for fuck sake!!
B7: ..!? The wolf… it’s not attacking him..!?
B8: What the hell!?
B9: They are bandits!!
B10: Don’t act like a wuss, brat!
B1: You were the one who challenged him into a duel, weren’t you?
B2: I… I know…
B5: I’ll give you an advice to honor that overindulged justice side of yours
B6: That brat… He’s talking with a wolf..!?
B7: Don’t tell me..! Hey, bring over the muskets! Let’s shoot it to death!!
B8: Wait! Seems like he’s decided to continue our duel
B1: Seems like you have steeled your resolve
B2: Then let’s start
B3: You sure you’re going to face me with that puny short sword of yours?
B5: If I win, the defendant will apologize for their barbaric deeds…
B6: Leave the stolen goods here and depart from this area at once!
B7: Huh? Stolen goods?
You mean these shit? We don’t need them, moron
B9: So in other words, to spare your lives, huh…
B1: Then if I win, it means that you accused us with a false charge!!
B2: And will be punished in the name of God as a criminal!!
B4: I originally didn’t have any plans to kill this woman, but…
B5: Thanks to you, brat, she’s going to be dead because you involved her!!
B6: So we’re going to be innocent after a single duel?
B7: Then I thank you for bringing us this offer, boy!!
B8: And thanks to you too, God!! Bwahahahaha!
B9: I dragged that woman in this duel..!?
B10: No, he’s just bluffing! Because either way, she’s going to be…
B1: Nico Miles!!
B4: That’s right! I don’t have time to hesitate!
B6: I almost got baited by his cheap provocation..!
B7: Listen here, boy
B8: No matter how you look at it, he’s not an opponent you could beat by fighting properly
B1: However, as you can see, he suffered defeat in a judicial duel in the past and lost his dominant arm
B2: In that case… There should be an opening you can exploit
B3: So trick him with a feint
Sfx: Rattle Rattle
B5: In that moment, with the dominant hand he lost in the past…
B6: He will definitely send that rusted technique over
B1: It’s coming!
B2: Damn, it didn’t come!
B3: What’s this? So the only brave part in you is your loud voice, boy?
B4: You’re 100 years too weak, brat!!
B5: What’s that? Were you trying to provoke me?
It’s futile, my boy!!
B6: Anyways, do you have enough now?
B7: Because you won’t be able to save that woman if you keep running away like this, you know?
H: I can’t..?
H: I can’t save that person..?
H: Because of me…
H: Nee-chan was…
H: If only…
H: I was…
H: A little bit stronger…
H: Make sure to protect your big sister…
H: This brat…
H: His footwork…
H: Is just like in swordsmanship art
H: As I thought, he was probably trained for it
B1: Nice going, boy… Now this is what a real duel should be like!
B3: That brat! He dares to throw away his weapon in the middle of the duel!?
H: Was that some sort of plan?
H: Or perhaps he’s just a plain fool?
H: What a bore
H: I have enough
H: Now die
B1: His unarmed and boorish appearance…
B2: No matter how you look at it…
H: Is specialized for striking!
B3: This is what I’m waiting for!
H: Inside the myriad of sword techniques…
H: Striking is a skill that has the least preparation moves. However, if you read the timing perfectly…
H: It’s a straight…
H: And simple sword technique. Furthermore…
H: If you do it properly…
H: The “pulling” movement…
H: Will always bring the opportunity to strike
H: As long as…
H: You aren’t afraid…
H: And match the timing of your “pulling”…
H: The window to strike will definitely appear in front of you
H: Wha..!? That boy…
H: Forget about feeling afraid…
H: He even took a step forward..!?
H: In other words…
H: A counter!
B2: Out of the circle…
Sfx: Badump Badump
B4: I did it! I won!!
B5: As promised…
B6: Release that wo-…
Sfx: Fwip Fwip
B2: What are you talking about, boy?
B3: Like we care about your pointless duel…
B4: Kill him!!!
B5: Wha..! It’s different from what you promised!!
B6: My sword!
(Note to editor: Double page with p37 please merge)
H: A strike of light
H: Flew in front of my eyes
B1: I can’t see it clearly, but…
B2: With his bare hands, even though he doesn’t have any wrists…
B3: He performed a truly beautiful flash strike right in front of me…
H: So this person…
H: Is also a knight
B1: It’s a monsteeeeeer!!!!
B2: What the hell is it!?
B3: A wolf that walks like a human!?
B4: Don’t tell me… It’s a werewolf!?
B6: Run for your liveesss!!
B7: W-Werewolf, you say..?
B1: No, that’s wrong…
B2: The mechanism on those hands of his… He must be the same as me… Either a former knight or a former duelist…
B3: And that sword skill…
I wonder how much time he devoted to achieve that level of technique…
B6: Compared to him, I guess I’m just a rusted duelist now…
B7: To think that I lost to a brat like that…
B1: Hey, brat
B2: It’s your win, Nico Miles
B1: Why are you hiding there, Ruins?
B2: Do you seriously think that someone without any fighting skills like me…
Can stand at the open air like nothing is happening at a dangerous place like this?
Sfx: Mumble Mumble
B2: It’s dangerous…
B3: I should have known. That’s why everyone…
Were always cautious of their surroundings…
B4: Despite that, I…
B5: I shouldn’t have saved you in the first place!!!
B6: I should have let you die by the roadside that time!!
B7: I felt sorry for you because you were collapsed on the road all alone, but…
To think that you have comrades…
B8: And what’s with that monster..!!
B1: Are you a witch!?
B2: Don’t tell me… All of this…
B3: No!! These people are..!
B4: How rude
B5: My name is Ruins, Nico Miles’ guardian
Oh, by the way…
B6: What are you transporting, to make you even going through a dangerous forest like this
B7: In the middle of the night?
B9: W-What you ask? J-Just manures…
B10: Manures, huh… Come to think of it, I heard an interesting rumor recently…
B1: It seems like there are strange people who want to boil and distil the excretes and soils around toilets, animals’ sheds and pens
B2: I think they’re planning to make the forbidden saltpeter
B3: Or in other words, they’re going to use them to make gunpowder illegally
B5: And if by chance, your group is the one who received profits from smuggling that kind of thing…
B6: Then it’s no wonder that there would be people who got wind of that rumor and attacked your group
B7: So if you’re still blaming Nico Miles…
Even after you heard what I just said…
B1: Shall we do another Judicial Duel right here right now?
B2: To prove your own innocence
B4: It was all for that kid…
B5: Even though it was all for that kid…
B1: She started smuggling to buy her kid’s medicine, but…
Even after her kid passed away, I guess in the end she can’t let the crime she dipped her toe in go
B2: Besides, the Abbe who we entrusted that women with seems to be quite proper, so you don’t have to worry
B4: In chaotic times like this, where the conflicts between Lords never stops…
B5: Some people throw their weights around as mercenaries or bandits
B6: Even the “innocent” citizens are tainted with crimes in this turbulent time
B1: And the Judicial Duel is the one and only Blade of Judgment in this chaotic world
B2: So carve it inside your memory that it’s not all bad
B3: Now that you know, just go back to your own home already
B1: Huh? Why are my hips…
Oh right… I collapsed because I got too tired, huh…
B2: But why are those guys just fine after walking this far?
B3: It’s no wonder for the wolf guy, but…
B4: Why is a slender girl like her fine…
B5: Is it because of the difference of our resolves..?
B7: They’re going to leave me behind..!
You’re going to carry me!?
B4: Wait wait wait!!
Sfx: Panic Panic
B5: Why did he become so kind all of a sudden..?
B6: But well, if you insist…
B7: Not you
I’m fine, you know?
B3: I told you I’m fine
B4: Could it be… Your feet are hurting..?
B5: They are not, you stupid!!
