After Kanon got in the cab, I finally let out a breath.[np]

Goddammit... I can't stand this anymore.[np]

My headaches are getting more frequent, too.[np]

...Uh... why did I come to Central Boulevard, again?[np]

[nm t="京介"]“......”[np]

Right, I had a therapy appointment with Dr. Akimoto.[np]

[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7037]“Ah, so it's not an issue of insomnia. Nothing to worry about, then.”[np]

[nm t="京介"]“Sure...”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“はあ……”[np]

I went along with it, rather uninterested. Dr. Akimoto leaned toward me.[np]

[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7039]“Great, now where did we leave off last time?”[np]
;;[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7039]“さて、前回はどこまで話したっけ?”[np]

[nm t="京介"]“Can we avoid that subject?”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“いいですよ、その話は”[np]

I turned my face away.[np]

Sweat coated my hands, and I tightly gripped the glass that he passed to me.[np]

[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7042]“Samejima Kyousuke-kun.”[np]
;;[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7042]“鮫島京介くん”[np]

[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7043]“Please don't glare at me like that.”[np]
;;[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7043]“にらまないでくれよ”[np]

I hate that joking attitude of his.[np]

[nm t="京介"]“I'm trying not to think about that anymore. I wouldn't be able to go on otherwise.”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“いいですか? おれはもう、そのことは考えないようにしてるんです。そうしなければ、やっていられないからです”[np]

[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7044]“That's true.”[np]

[nm t="京介"]“What do you mean, ‘That's true!?’”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“だろうねって……!”[np]

My lips were quivering.[np]

[nm t="京介"]“Are you really a famous doctor!? Can you seriously treat patients with this provocative attitude!?”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“あなたそれでも高名な医者なんですか!? 患者を挑発するような真似をしていいんですか!?”[np]

Yet Akimoto was very calm.[np]

[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7045]“But you're not a serious patient, are you? Aren't you only here to get a doctor's note for school?”[np]
;;[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7045]“だって、君はちゃんとした患者さんじゃないんでしょ? 学園をさぼる口実を作るためにここに通ってるわけでしょ?”[np]

...This fucker...[np]

[nm t="京介"]“You're absolutely right. So, why don't we give this up and just chat?”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“そのとおりです。だから、てきとうに雑談でもしませんか?”[np]

[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7046]“You hate attention, don't you?”[np]
;;[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7046]“君は目立つのが大嫌いだろう?”[np]

[nm t="京介"]“...What makes you bring that up?”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“……なんですか、いきなり”[np]

[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7047]“I'd say that you suffered a great deal of attention when you were younger, so it's not surprising that you've come to hate standing out...”[np]
;;[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7047]“さんざん世間の注目を浴びたわけだからね。そうか、人の目が怖いか……”[np]
;;adding it just occurred to me as buffer padding in a sentence for something that didn't just occur to him. Mmm... Ok I'll let it go but if you want to go for padding try something more neutral!

I finally realized that he completely had the upper hand in the conversation.[np]

[nm t="京介"]“Look, I know next to nothing about my father. I don't [ font italic="true" ]want[ resetfont ] to know.”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“とにかく、もう父のことはよく知りません。知りたいとも思わない”[np]

[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7048]“You never went to see him? Not even once?”[np]
;;[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7048]“面会にも行ってないのかい?”[np]

In my ears, these words were Dr. Akimoto reprimanding me.[np]

In my heart, I heard his screams calling me an unfilial son――![np]

[nm t="京介"]“...Not even once.”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“……一度も”[np]

My heart was beating too fast to support life.[np]

[nm t="京介"]“No, I did go once, with Mother... when I was a child. But I didn't say anything.”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“いや、一度だけ、母さんといっしょに……子供のころ……しかし、おれは、なにもしゃべらなかった……”[np]

[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7049]“Have you ever wanted to ask why your father did what he did?”[np]
;;[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7049]“お父さんに、なぜ、あんなことをしたのか、聞いてみたいとは思わなかったのかい?”[np]

I was silent.[np]

[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7050]“Kyousuke-kun?”[np]
;;[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7050]“京介くん?”[np]

I stopped talking, and made an effort to freeze my heart.[np]

My mind wandered back to the beautiful snow dancing beyond the window of that dilapidated home my mother and I once lived in together.[np]

I lingered there until the cold in my memory had numbed my heart entirely.[np]

And then――[np]

[nm t="京介"]“There'd be no point in asking.”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“聞く意味がありませんから”[np]

[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7051]“...Hmm?”[np]
;;[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7051]“……む?”[np]

[nm t="京介"]“Why would I need to know what drove my father to kill four people?”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“なぜ、四人も殺したのか。理解してどうなるというんです?”[np]

[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7052]“...Kyousuke-kun?”[np]
;;[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7052]“……京介くん?”[np]

For the first time, Akimoto's loose expression broke.[np]

Because... I was smiling.[np]
;;He snapped makes it sound like he was angry or something.

[nm t="京介"]“However, I don't need to ask him to know the answer. I understand why he did it. No, I'm the only one who truly understands. If I didn't, his actions would have been in vain.”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“しかし、父が人を殺めた真意は、おれにはわかる。いや、おれだけは、わかっている。わかってやらねば、父が報われない”[np]

Akimoto furrowed his brow.[np]

[nm t="京介"]“There were people who needed to die, and he just followed through.”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“殺されて当然の人間を、当然に殺したまでのことだ”[np]

[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7053]“Kyousuke-kun, it's very wrong of you to think like that...”[np]
;;[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7053]“京介くん、それは違う……”[np]

[nm t="京介"]“No, you and your ilk are the ones who're wrong. But I won't say anything more. Trying to explain my father's innocence to you all would accomplish nothing. I'll show you firsthand. All you have to do is watch.”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“違うのはお前らだ。が、多くは語らん。お前らに父の潔白を説いても無駄だからだ。おれはやる。お前らは身を持って知ればいい”[np]

Akimoto suddenly stood up.[np]

There was a clear shade of confusion in his eyes.[np]

[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7054]“Let's stop here for today.”[np]
;;[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7054]“今日は、ここまでにしよう”[np]

[nm t="京介"]“Oh? But we aren't even twenty minutes into the session.”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“おや? まだ二十分もたっていませんが?”[np]

[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7055]“I'll give you a discount.”[np]
;;[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7055]“診察料は特別に割引してあげよう”[np]

[nm t="京介"]“That's great to hear.”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“それはよかった”[np]

I waved my hand and casually walked away.[np]

 There was a beautiful feeling in the air, like a revolution was about to begin.[wvl]
;; 革命が始まる予感があった。[wvl]
 The devil ‘Mephistopheles’ was sitting at a bar in a secluded alley along Central Boulevard, waiting for ‘Maou’ to call.[wvl]
;; "[ruby text="メフィスト "]悪[ruby text="  フェレス"]魔"は セントラル街の奥まった路地にあるバーのカウンターで、"魔王"からの入電を待っていた。[wvl]
;;Why does it have to be changed to ‘near' Central Boulevard. It's already hard enough to sell the fact that ‘boulevard' is supposed to refer to like, a fucking entire area and not just one street, saying something is ‘near' it instead of located in it doesn't help matters.
 The clock's hands pointed to eight exactly.[l] ‘Mephistopheles’ put the battery into the cell phone.[l] The time had been arranged by ‘Maou’.[l] He had explicitly told ‘Mephistopheles’ to get into the habit of taking batteries out of phones.[l] It's much more difficult to be tracked if one does so.[wvl]
;; 腕時計の針が午後八時ちょうどを差した。[l]"悪魔"は、携帯電話のバッテリーを入れた。[l]"魔王"の指示だった。[l]普段からバッテリーを外す癖をつけておくべきだと。[l]そうすれば、そう簡単に居場所を追跡されることはない。[wvl]
 The devil at the bar had recieved ‘Maou's’ letter three days earlier.[np]
;; "魔王"から手紙が届いたのは、三日前のことだった。[np]
;;Note that the very first instance of Demon uses Mephistopheles in furigana above it. I don't know if you want to implement that somehow or whatever.(It might sound cooler than just using Demon)
;;yeah I just now noticed that. Hmm... you know what, it's total redo time. Maou calls him mephistopheles in the letter, and the furigana decide how something's supposed to be read. gogo TLC power! - pondr
;;Though I tell you what, such a long word gets annoying. Oh well, just another small annoyance at editing. It's all in the name of accuracy and coolness factor. - pondr
;;"It's much more difficult to be tracked if one does so." [citation needed] 

 ‘Mephistopheles’ was a representative of the Great Japan Revolutionary School, and had put the office address on the website, making it public without concern.[wvl]
;; "悪魔"は、大日本革新義塾の代表として、事務所の住所を堂々とウェブサイトに公開していた。[wvl]
;;Without concern kind of sounded weird in the sentence without clarifying why it might entail any concern.
;;what happened here with the page getting deleted and turned into a >_>
 The first words of the letter read, ‘I want you to kill a certain person.’[l] Even a date and time had been specified, along with a meticulously detailed plan for murder.[wvl]
;; 書き出しは、ある人間を殺して欲しい、とあった。[l]それは、時間と場所の指定まである詳細で緻密な殺人計画だった。[wvl]
 At first, he believed it to be nothing more than a prank or trap set by the communists.[l] But after reading further about ‘Maou's’ advocacy――reprimanding corrupt politicians and the fourth estate――his interest was piqued.[l] Even though the punctuation was carelessly atrocious, and the writer seemed uncultured, the letter's passion had touched ‘Mephistopheles’.[wvl]
;; 初めはよくある悪戯か共産党の罠かと思われた。[l]しかし、その後に続く"魔王"の主張――堕落した政治家や第四権力への批判――を読み進めるうちに、並々ならぬ興味を覚えた。[l]句読点の打ち方が妙であったり単語の誤用が見られたりするところから学識はなさそうだったが、その激情は"悪魔"の胸を打った。[wvl]
 And through last night's phone call, he had confirmed that they were indeed comrades.[np]
;; そして、昨日の深夜に交わした電話のやりとりで、彼が同志であると確信にいたった。[np]
;;There were some places in this script where the translation took the liberty of using group or we or something implying the group he belongs to when there was no such indication in the original. I left it alone at first since I thought it wouldn't matter, but apparently not X_X I think there were only the few here but if you see any inner monologues or something that makes it seem like he's referring to his group as if there's more than one person, mark it for me so I can take a look.

 He called himself Azai,[l] but had added, "Just call me ‘Maou’." [wvl]
;; 彼は浅井と名乗った。[l]"魔王"と呼んでくれ、とも。[wvl]
 ‘Maou’ announced that he had killed a man.[l] He'd pushed him down a staircase.[l] He'd hidden himself in an obscure place, waited for him to come back home, and shoved the man when he wasn't looking.[l] Even though the methods weren't complex, as long as there weren't any witnesses, it would be hard to place it as anything but an accident.[wvl]
;; "魔王"は、電話のなかで、一人の男を殺したと告げた。[l]マンションの階段から突き落とした。[l]物陰に隠れて被害者の帰宅を待ち、不意をついて背中を押した。[l]単純だが、目撃者さえいなければ事故との区別は難しいという。[wvl]
 ‘Mephistopheles’ asked him why that man had been marked for death.[l] He liked the answer.[wvl]
;; "悪魔"は、なぜ殺したと聞いた。[l]その答えが気に入った。[wvl]
 ‘Because he was a homosexual.’[wvl]
 ‘Mephistopheles’ shared that belief.[l] Great Japan has no need for such weaklings.[np]
;; それは、"悪魔"の主張と共鳴していた。[l]偉大なる日本に同性愛者のような弱者は不要である。[np]
;;edit back fool "refuse" sounds sweet in that line! - pondr
;;Ok, so lines that help clarify and shape someone's personality should be changed in favor of sounding sweet. Alright man I will keep that in mind.
;;Last time around I figured it was pretty clear that the guy was a radical, but hey, if you thought it was important enough to TLC last time, I should've realized better. Thanks for the reality check. - pondr
;;You realize that he's a radical yes, but you don't realize the specifics of his radicalness. Before it sounds like he's just a prejudiced gay hater, but his hate behind gays actually has a form of logic behind it, because the gay culture is generally emasculate AND SAIJOU IS A GIANT BALL OF MANLINESS

 Upon asking, he discovered that the victim had been a clothing designer.[l] Supposedly, he publicly announced that he was a homosexual and had received widespread media attention because of it.[l] He was definitely a man that deserved to die.[wvl]
;; 聞けば被害者は、服飾を専門とするデザイナーで、ゲイであることをカミングアウトしたことで、マスコミの注目を集めていたのだという。[l]たしかに、死んで当然の人間ではないか。[wvl]
 ‘Mephistopheles’ saw ‘Maou’ as a man with decisive feelings and the courage to act on them.[l] He was happy to find another individual who worried for the future of the nation.[wvl]
;; 行動力のある男だと思った。[l]国を憂う同志が増えたことは喜ばしい。[wvl]

 He seems to be an intelligent man.[l] His will also seems to be strong; there's even a hint of insanity in his cold words.[l] The problem lies with ‘Maou's’ background.[l] In other words, if he has such a bold plan, why does he still need me...?[wvl]

[nm t="魔王" s=mao_1159]“After this person is dead, I intend to stand up and criticize those corrupted Japanese. Only, I'm alone.

She's got a point. If her quad jump fails, then it'll lead to trouble. It's easier to guarantee a high score if she just does a good triple.[np]

;;[nm t="花音" s=kan_7207]“あれれ? 兄さん知らないの? のんちゃんは、ジャンプはジュニアのときからほとんど転んだことないんだよ?”[np]
;;Original is since she was a junior, likely referring to skating (novice, junior, etc). Come to think of it, it was used a few scripts ago in 24.ks I think and was just translated as junior. People reading junior there are probably going to automatically think of junior in high school so might want to clarify it somehow.
