B3: Met with a travelling Judge and her wolf…
B3b: And I ended up traveling together with them
B1: However, I never dreamt, that in a transit town which we passed in the middle of our journey…
B2: Another Judicial Duel will be waiting right in front of me
H: Chapter 3: Man, Woman, and Man
H: A woman’s corpse, with a knife in her chest…
Sfx: Rain sound
H: Lays under the drizzling rain…
H: But no one knows…
The reason for the tears that flow from her eyes
B1: So hard… Why is this bread so hard?
B2: Just how many days ago did they make this bread?
B3: It’s still so hard, even after I dip it into my oatmeal…
B4: Or rather, I feel like it’s becoming harder now…
B5: I doubt that it’s as hard as the back of your feet though, Ruins
B6: Furthermore, we have no choice but to stay in such cheap inn… Sigh, I never thought that Ducat Gold Coin is worthless here…
B7: I heard that the French influence is rather strong in this area…
B8: But it never crossed my mind that the money changer would extort us with such ludicrous rate…
B1: Wait, can you even use that in my town?
B2: And this disgusting soup just confirms it further…
B2b: What a boondock this place is
B3: I can eat it for you if you don’t want it
B4: Nobody said that I don’t want it
Sfx: Crang Crang
B2: That hurts, you know…
B3: That’s not even comparable to what you did to my wife!!
B4: You dirty bastard!!
B1: It’s all your fault… …
B2: That my wife took her own life at that rainy night..!!
B3: Even if she’s just one of the women you have a fling with…
B4: But to me, she’s my one and only wife, you fucker!!
B5: And you…
B5b: And you..!
B6: Hey Otto…
B7: We went through all of this back at the church, didn’t we?
B1: And they decided that…
B1b: Neither mine nor your testimony was enough to process this matter
B2: And neither does Martha’s dead body
B3: Or what? Are you saying that you have some proof from inside Martha’s body?
B4: That I…
B5: Did “something” to her..?
B1: I challenge you on a Judicial Duel, you bastard!!
B5: He said it!!
B7: Nicely done, Otto!
B1: Hey, guys!! Otto and Kyle will do a judicial duel!!
B2: Ruins! They’re going to do a judicial duel!!
B3: Looks like it
B4: We have to stop them!
B6: Why!? People could die at this rate!!
B7: Seems like you misunderstood something, boy
B8: The Pope only gave us, Travelling Judges, power to see through…
B9: Whether there is any cheating conducts in Judicial Duels
B1: But we don’t have any right to stop people from doing Judicial Duel itself
Sfx: Drip Drip
B2: No matter whether if it’s because of a broken love affair or just a personal grudge… As long as it’s a proper Judicial Duel, then I have no reason to stop it
Sfx: Drip Drip
B4b: You should be the one who understands it best, that Judicial Duel… isn’t something that can be stopped easily…
B5: By any outsiders who doesn’t even know the real situation behind it carelessly, right…
B3: …He smiled
B5: Just now… When the other guy challenged him into a Judicial Duel, that slender guy…
B6: He smiled…
B7: That large build man will be killed!
B8: That’s what my gut is telling me
B1: That’s why… I’m going to try to know both of those guys first before I give them a piece of my mind!
B3: Did you really listen to what I just said!?
B4: But you can stop it if it’s a problematic Judicial Duel, can’t you, Ruins?
B6: Sigh, whatever… I don’t care anymore
B6b: Shall we leave this boondock now?
B1: Now, let’s get it on boys!!
Sfx: Rattle Rattle
B2: How much will you bet!?
Sfx: Rattle Rattle
B5: How do you think this will end?
B6: Who knows
B7: But if it’s just a fight between amateurs…
B8: Then I’m 80% sure that the large build man will win
B9: 80%, huh…
B9b: I really want you to be 90% sure though…
B11: I can let this gold coin go
B1: I get it, I get it
B2: Now that this matter has become this big
B2b: I won’t try to stop it anymore
Sfx: Chatter Chatter
B3: Right now, in this place we witnessed that there are two contrasting statements here
B4: So unfortunately, one of you must be lying!!
B4b: Let the God judge which one of you is the liar in a Judicial Duel!!
B5: Both parties! Both of you are prohibited to interfere with each other until the Judicial Duel tomorrow!!
B1: Good grief
B2: Then, both of you, throw this glove
B2b: Into the Duel Arena first
B3: Oh, so the judicial duel is regulated by the church here
B4: And it looks like… that Priest doesn’t do any injustice while doing it
BC: He seems to be the kind of person who finds extra work troublesome anyways
B5: Those two said that it’s their first Judicial Duel…
B6: So… I doubt that priest has anything to do with this case…
B7: Excuse me… Can I ask you something about the Defendant, Kyle?
B9: Wait, you don’t know him? He’s famous for making moves to not only Otto’s wife
B9b: But also most of the women in this transit town, you know?
B10: Sigh, what did Martha see in someone like that anyways?
B1: Well, everyone knows that he would end up like this sooner or later
B2: So he just reaped what he sowed
B3: So he’s not well received here, huh…
B4: But then again, he’s a good fighter, right?
B5: What? Fighter!?
B5b: Are you blind? Look at his frail arms!!
B6: I bet my money that he can’t even win against a dog!!
B6b: Moreover, his opponent is that Otto! He won’t stand a chance against him!!
B7: Then, why…
H: did he smile…
H: At that time..?
B8: Did he believe he can win?
B8b: Or perhaps, will he resort to cheating…
B9: To prove his innocence?
B2: Please! Listen to me!
B3: Something bad will definitely happen in tomorrow’s Judicial Duel!!
B4: Go away!!
B5: At this rate, not only your wife, but your own life would also be-…
B4: Calm down!!
B5: Calm down and listen to me, Uncle!!
Sfx: Fwish Fwish
B1: Hey Uncle…
B2: Are you trying to kill me here..?
B5: Just leave me alone…
B1: I’m surprised that a human who can grate someone else’s nerves that much really exists
B3: What a frightening thick skinned boy
B4: Did you follow me?
B5: Don’t flatter yourself
B5b: I’m just on my way back from the church
B6: So, did you find something that can convince me to stop the Judicial Duel?
B7: Hurry up if you still want to stop it
B8: …Wait..? Didn’t she say that she doesn’t have any more money?
B9: Before this town gets engulfed in a festival mood completely
Sfx: Bam Bam
Sfx: Rattle Rattle
Sfx: Hey Hey
B1: They think it’s an amusement…
Sfx: Come on!
B2: Just like at that time…
B2b: I guess… People just love to watch other people suffer…
B3: If you hate watching other people get hurt in a Judicial Duel that much…
B4: Why don’t you join them as a Duelist’s Representative yourself?
B5: That way, you won’t have to watch other people get hurt in vain, don’t you agree?
B6: Duelist’s Representative..?
B8: That’s right
B8b: If both the Defendant and the Plaintiff agree to it, it’s possible to choose another duelist to fight for them in Judicial Duel
B1: And that is the Duelist’s Representative!?
B2: Well, considering how much you pissed off Mr. Otto back there…
B3: I doubt he will let you fight for him though
B5: Then why did you suggest that…
B6: I’m just telling you to stop your futile struggle, that’s all
Sfx: Gloom Gloom
B9: Duelist’s Representative, huh…
B10: But, it’s really obvious who we should bet for in this duel, isn’t it?
B11: I mean, there’s no fricking way that Kyle can win against Otto
B1: I just can’t understand why he accepted this duel in the first place… Doesn’t he hold his life dear?
B2b: Perhaps he really doesn’t?
H: Maybe the guilt is killing him?
B4: I don’t know, maybe he was full of sorrow when he saw Martha’s body
B4b: So perhaps he’s trying to atone for his sin with that?
B5: That’s why he deliberately provoked Otto back then
B5b: So that he can die in the Judicial Duel
B6: Well, it doesn’t have anything to do with us though
H: Are you telling me that…
H: That guy deliberately baited a Judicial Duel…
H: Just because…
H: The guilt is unbearable to him!?
B1: There he is!!
B2: Wait, isn’t this where the suicide took place..!?
B3: Just what is he doing he-…
B5: Don’t tell me..!?
B6: He’s really going to throw his life away in the duel..!?
B7: Stop!! This is wrong!!
B8: Just admit your sin and everything will be over!
B9: Throwing your life in a Duel is just wrong!!
B1: In the first place, there’s no real need to hold the Judicial Duel after all!!
H: This guy…
H: Doesn’t have any intention to die in tomorrow’s duel..!!
B5: Don’t do anything stupid, brat
B3: I was surprised when you came back with a swollen cheek last night
B3b: To think that you returned to Otto’s place after everything that I’ve said…
B4: I don’t know if you’re tenacious or just a plain idiot
B5: I know that Kyle guy is trying to win this duel by cheating somehow…
B6: As long as you don’t have any proof, you’re just barking at the moon
B7: If there’s nothing else, just sit and watch…
B8: How the God’s judgment works
B1: Well then!!
B1b: Kyle, Otto, because both of your testimonies are still contrasting each other even now
B1c: It’s obvious that one of you must be lying before our Holy God!!
B2: So prove it, with your own bodies…
B3: The real undeniable truth!!
B1: It’s starting!!
B2: It’s all your fault, that she…
B3: That Martha is…
B4: That guy… He’s slowly retreating…
Sfx: Clang Clang Clang
H: Hey, put up some fight, will you!!
B5: As I thought… He doesn’t have any chance to win this…
B5b: However… I’m really certain he has something up his sleeve…
B2: What’s that!? A grip!? Wait, a knife!?
B3: Don’t tell me, no one checked the arena before the duel!?
B4: Ruins, look at that! It’s a knife!!
B5: Come to think of it, that guy offered flowers to her, didn’t he…
B6: Listen to me!!
B7: Perhaps he blamed himself for driving her to suicide…
B7b: Or maybe he just did it to appeal to other people
B1: Either way, no matter what sin he is feeling guilty for, as long as he wins this duel, he will be declared innocent
B2: That’s what Judicial Duel is
B3: Are you telling me that…
B4: He’s fighting to justify his guilt..?
B5: Who knows?
B5: Normally, it’s not wrong to think that way, but…
B7: It was raining at the place where the suicide took place
H: The time of death is not long after sun was out
H: Her body was found with a knife stabbed to her chest
H: Even though her clothes were a little disarranged, it was concluded that it was all because of the rain…
B8: In other words…
B1: There is also a possibility that this is a murder, isn’t it?
B2: Wha..!? Then Ruins, are you…
B3: It’s in Human’s nature to lie
B4: That’s why we have Judicial Duel
Sfx: Clang Clang
B6: He dropped his sword!
B7: Why… Why did she have to like…
B7b: Someone like you!!
B2: What was good about that woman anyway?
B3: She was clumsy
B6: Furthermore, she wasn’t as curvy as the other women in this town
Sfx: Tremble Tremble
B3: Oh right…
B1: It was because she will never say anything…
B2: No matter how much you beat her, was it?
B3: Gaha..! This… knife..!
B5: You punched her, kicked her, every single fucking day…
B6: And you beat her in places other than her face, so other people won’t even notice it
B1: Even an idiot won’t be surprised if she cheated on you
B2b: Shut up…
B3: That “thing” is mine!!
B3b: You lot… especially a filthy thief like you…
B4: Doesn’t have any right to tell me how I should treat her!!
Sfx: Grit Grit
B5: She is MY WIFE!!!
B6: That is not love, you know…
B1: It’s just domination
B2: You drove Martha into a corner just because of your paranoid doubt…
B3: And the rumor that she cheated with me, even though I didn’t sleep with her!!
Sfx: Tremble Tremble
B4: Stop… it…
Sfx: Push Push
B5: Tell me, did you stop when Martha told you those words…
B1: At that rainy day?
Sfx: Rain sounds
B3: Dea… r…
B2: Hey… that pose Otto is in…
B3: Isn’t it really similar to Martha’s..?
B4: Then… Otto really killed his own wife?
B5: But is this alright? I mean, he did hide a weapon in the arena…
B6: Of course it’s not alright!!
B5b: It’s against the rules to smuggle a weapon in a sacred Judicial Duel!!
B6: Defendant Kyle!
B6b: This is clearly an insult toward our Lord in heaven!!
Sfx: Run Run
B7: Rope him in!!
B1: I wonder about that
B3: The only fault I see here is your careless investigation and the fact that you didn’t check the sacred Duel Arena before the fight
B4: Am I right, Priest?
B5: That scale..!
B6: Release that man at once
B1: In the end…
B1b: Kyle deliberately provoked Otto to a Judicial Duel to avenge Martha, right?
B2: Well, someone who was seen to be in an adulterous relationship with the victim can’t just challenge the husband to a Judicial Duel, can he?
B3: So you knew everything from the start huh, Ruins…
B4: I told you, we outsiders will never know the real situation behind it completely
B4b: But well…
B5: A travelling judge like me
B5b: Is allowed to enter the Church freely and read some of the crime documents
B6: So of course I’m closer to the truth than a mere random brat
B7: Well, even then, why is a playboy who flirts with all the women in this town
B8: Paying so much attention to someone’s wife…
B1: It’s still a mystery to me though
B3: Outsiders, huh…
B4: I heard that the two of them… weren’t actually born in this village… So maybe…
B5: They feel connected as fellow outsiders..?
B6: I see
B1: As I thought, I still can’t understand it
B3: These lottery tickets are invalid?
B1: Yes. Kyle cheated and brought an illegal weapon to the sacred Judicial Duel after all
Even though that Otto turned to be the killer in the end
B2: But that was because the Church did their job sloppily!
H: I mean…
B3: Then it’s all more the reason to override this bet
B4: I already gave your money back, so can it
B6: But I traded my gold coin in such a ludicrous rate just to bet in this!!
B7: Even if you give it back now, I will still..!
B8: Well, that’s your problem
B9: Eh, wait, Ruins!? Did you bet your money in that fight!?
B10: You’re a travelling judge! What were you thinking!?
B11: Oh, shut up!! This is a super legal way to get more money, you know!!
B1: Really… If I knew that this duel would be invalid in the end, I would have went to the next town yesterday, you know…
B2: To see the rumored Duelist’s Representative who settled the dispute
B3: I even heard he and the Fief Lord there got some sweet fat rewards from it
H: The Duelist’s Representative they’re going to meet… is really skillful!?
(Note to pr and editor: side text)
B4: So? Is that Duelist’s Representative really strong?
B5: Yeah… He’s the undefeated champion after all
H: Next time, what kind of truth will Nico Miles see right before his eyes at the Fortress city..?
