;;This is where the hot-blooded thing originally comes into play(the one you put in on line 292).

;;Original is more like the protrusion which reigns at the center of my breast.

Each password that Kyousuke says ends the same way 首, kubi.(except for wannabe, still ends in bi. Wannabe can be used in Japanese to indicate people who are enthusiastic fans of something so considered the "Yeah!" in response probably  meant to reflect enthusiasm, I'm guessing that's how it's used here.

;;Actually I've only recently learned that ソープに沈め(literally sink in soup) is slang for something akin to selling into prostitution X_X soap comes from the soap in soapland. It might seem to have less impact than killing her, but since Gonzou loves money, and doing that is much more economical, it does fit his personality more. I would prefer the more accurate version(to his character as well) but will leave the change to the editor because I can't think of an exquisite metaphor to use :(

;;Ah, I see. When people see "out of" they typically think of "from." Like, "out of the goodness of my heart" and stuff. But born out of wedlock literally means born outside of wedlock. It is kind of a counterintuitive phrase given the typical reader's mental programming.
