 Kanon had always been cold to her mother, Ikuko.[wvl]
;; 花音は母親の郁子に冷めていた。[wvl]
 She had no idea when she began to feel such discontent concerning her mother.[l] For all Kanon knew, her heart had been dead since she entered adulthood.[l] For whatever reason, her mother simply seemed abnormal to her childish mind.[l] She was just too beautiful, and obsessed with keeping up appearances.[np]
;; いつごろから、憮然とした態度を取るようになってしまったのか、花音にはわからない。[l]物心がついたときには、もう、心が凍りついていたかもしれない。[l]子供心に、普通の人ではないと思った。[l]母はあまりにも美しすぎた。[l]外見と外面を美しく見せることに執着していた。[np]

[nm t="花音" s=kan_7508]“Mom, where's Papa?”[wvl]
;;[nm t="花音" s=kan_7508]“お母さん、パパは?”[wvl]
 ‘Non-chan’ was not supposed to know.[np]
;; それは、"のんちゃん"の知るところではなかった。[np]

[nm t="郁子" s=yuu_7043]“Non-chan, do you like skating? It's fun, right? Lots and lots of people are really happy when you skate. I'm happy when you skate, too. So Non-chan just needs to devote herself to skating, and not worry about anything else.”[wvl]
;;[nm t="郁子" s=yuu_7043]“のんちゃん、スケートは楽しい? 楽しいでしょう? 大勢の人が喜んでくれるものね。お母さんもとってもうれしいわ。だから、のんちゃんはスケートのことだけを考えてればいいの”[wvl]
[nm t="花音" s=kan_7509]“Okay, but... everyone else has a Papa.”[wvl]
;;[nm t="花音" s=kan_7509]“うん……でも、みんなパパがおうちにいるよ?”[wvl]
[nm t="郁子" s=yuu_7044]“Non-chan is different from everyone else. She's special. Look, can anyone jump on the ice like you?”[wvl]
;;[nm t="郁子" s=yuu_7044]“のんちゃんは、みんなとは違うの。特別な子なの。だって見てごらんなさい。のんちゃんのお友達は、氷の上で跳んだりできる?”[wvl]
[nm t="花音" s=kan_7510]“No.”[np]
;;[nm t="花音" s=kan_7510]“できない”[np]

 Children are sensitive to lies, and Kanon was a particularly sensitive girl.[l] Thus, even at that age, she understood that her mother was hiding something from her.[l] Her mother's surname was Kanesaki, so why was her surname Azai?[l] However, though their names may have been different, Ikuko had doted on Kanon far too strongly for Kanon to see her as a complete stranger.[wvl]
;; 子供は嘘に敏感で、花音は鋭い少女だった。[l]だから、母親が事実を隠していることはなんとなくわかっていた。[l]母親の名前が金崎なのに、なぜ自分は浅井なのか。[l]けれど、苗字が違うという理由だけで、郁子を他人だと思うには、彼女は花音に甘すぎた。[wvl]
 Ikuko gave Kanon everything she ever wanted.[l] From lovely dolls, to the latest video games, to adorable clothes which any of Kanon's friends would envy.[wvl]
;; 欲しいものはなんでも調達してきてくれた。[l]愛らしい人形に最新のテレビゲーム、友達の誰もがうらやむかわいらしい洋服。[wvl]
[nm t="郁子" s=yuu_7045]“I'll do anything for you, Kanon-chan. We can always make more money. It was the same for me.”[np]
;;[nm t="郁子" s=yuu_7045]“花音ちゃんのためならなんでもしてあげる。お金なんてあとからついてくるのよ。私もそうだったから”[np]
;;The line お金なんてあとからついてくるのよ implies that the money she spends on her will simply come right back/follow due to Kanon earning it through her talent or whatnot. I don't know if that comes clear with this sentence, but yeah.
;;Hopefully that's a little more clear now.

 Kanon quickly grew tired of it all.[l] After winning various competitions as a child, she soon discovered a fundamental truth about human nature: that getting what you want isn't as satisfying unless you earned it yourself.[wvl]
;; すぐに飽きた。[l]幼いころから大小さまざまな競技会を連覇していた花音は、欲しいものは自分の力で手に入れなければ満足できないという理を、肌で悟っていた。[wvl]
 Her wish for a father was finally realized after receiving――and while she was still in grade school, no less――a special invitation to compete in the Japan Championships on a Senior level.[l] Until that point, she had been competing in the Novice A lists; not even at the Junior level.[l] Despite being unable to bring home the title, her Papa had stroked her head kindly at their first encounter.[np]
;; 念願のパパが手に入ったのは、特別推薦を受けて小学生にして、ノービスAからシニアの全国大会に参戦したときだった。[l]タイトルの獲得にはいたらなかったが、初めて出会ったパパは、そのごつい腕で花音の頭をていねいに撫でてくれた。[np]
;;but we know from a ch. 3 script that Kanon did at one point compete in the junior levels, presumably thereafter. - pondr
;;Yes, it specifically says a special invitation to the senior level Japanese Championship. Not that she was graduated to that level. If you want to clarify the Japan Championship part then that's up to you(it mentions that she couldn't win the title so I think it's probably for the best)

[nm t="浅井権三" s=gon_7298]“I'll be taking care of you from now on. You can have anything you want. If you don't like your mother, I'll get you a new one.”[wvl]
;;[nm t="浅井権三" s=gon_7298]“これからは俺が面倒をみてやる。なんでも言え。母親がいやなら替えてやる”[wvl]
 Although Kanon did not understand her father's words, she was relieved to know that she, too, had a father.[l] For the first time, she felt glad she started skating.[np]
;; 言葉の意味はわからなかったが、自分にもパパがいたという安堵に、花音はそのときになって初めて、スケートをやっていて良かったと涙した。[np]

[nm t="花音" s=kan_7511]“Mom, I met Papa! Papa came!”[wvl]
;;[nm t="花音" s=kan_7511]“お母さん、パパ、パパ、いたよ!”[wvl]
[nm t="郁子" s=yuu_7046]“Oh really?”[wvl]
;;[nm t="郁子" s=yuu_7046]“そう”[wvl]
[nm t="花音" s=kan_7512]“He said I did good!”[wvl]
;;[nm t="花音" s=kan_7512]“褒めてくれたの!”[wvl]
[nm t="郁子" s=yuu_7047]“Did he now?”[wvl]
;;[nm t="郁子" s=yuu_7047]“そう”[wvl]
 As she watched Kanon laugh and dance, Ikuko bathed in discontent.[l] ‘Go fuck yourself...’ she muttered under her breath.[l] Hearing her, Kanon's heart froze once again.[np]
;; 満面の笑みを浮かべてはしゃぎまわる花音に、郁子はどこか不満げだった。[l]そして、ぼそりとつぶやいた一言。[l]死ねばいいのに……。花音はまた、心を凍りつかせた。[np]

 Kanon's day-to-day life of skating rolled ever-forward.[l] Ikuko was extremely kind.[l] She detested coaches who swore at their athletes, and cared for Kanon as well as she could.[l] It had reached the point where Kanon had started to consider Ikuko's instruction to be nothing more than flattery.[wvl]
;; スケートに没頭する毎日が続いた。[l]郁子は異常なほど優しかった。[l]怒鳴り声をあげて選手を一喝するよそのコーチを尻目に、いつも上目づかいで花音におうかがいを立てていた。[l]花音はいつしか、郁子の指導を、ただの媚にしか感じられなくなっていた。[wvl]
 But even still, for the sake of victory, Kanon was expected to give many more times the effort than anyone else.[l] In order to maintain her weight, her lifestyle was harshly controlled.[l] She would stay awake the whole night beside the sleeping Ikuko watching recordings of her performances.[l] When her first menstrual cycle came, she gained weight and had trouble managing it.[l] It was only after seeking help from a sports medicine expert at a prestigious university that she was able to rebuild her physical condition from the ground up.[l] Behind all this torturous training, though, Kanon maintained her smile for the media, taking time out of her schedule regularly to mold her image as the ‘genius skating girl’.[np]
;; それでも勝つためには他人の何倍もの努力を要求された。[l]減量を中心とした体調管理を徹底した。[l]郁子が寝ている横で、自分の試合のビデオテープを朝まで見続けた。[l]初潮を迎え、体が丸みを帯びてきた時期は大変につらかったが、さる有名大学でスポーツ科学を研究する教授の門をたたき、一から筋肉を整えた。[l]過酷な修練の裏で、天才スケート少女としてマスコミにも笑顔を見せた。[np]
;;note that the line about getting back in shape also has a part about how she basically had to rebuild her body from the ground up, which helps strengthen the image of just how much work she went through

[nm t="郁子" s=yuu_7048]“Well, Kanon-chan, it looks like your mother has nothing more to teach you.”[wvl]
;;[nm t="郁子" s=yuu_7048]“もう、お母さんが教えられることなんてほとんどないわね”[wvl]
 Ikuko eventually retired from the ice.[l] She stood beside the rink as a stranger, occasionally pointing out small mistakes.[wvl]
;; いつしか郁子がリンクに立つことはなくなっていた。[l]リンクの外側からまるで部外者のようにときおり声を出し、細かなミスを指摘するだけだった。[wvl]
 Officials from the International Skating Union wanted to separate Kanon and Ikuko.[l] However, a change of coaches was never enforced, due in part to ‘Kanon's strong opposition to it’.[l] And yet Kanon had no memory of ever opposing such a thing...[wvl]
;; 見かねたフィギュアスケート連合の指導者たちが、花音と郁子を引き離そうとした。[l]しかし、花音の強い希望でコーチが代替わりすることはなかった。[l]花音は、強い希望など出した覚えはないのに……。[wvl]
 In the end, Kanon's full potential remained underutilized until the famous coach George Hilton confronted the International Skating Union on her behalf.[l] She may have gotten by in the Novice and Junior lists using only her natural talent, but the Senior level, with its many great, experienced skaters, was more competitive than Kanon could have dreamed.[np]
;; 結果、名コーチとして名高いジョージ・ヒルトンが世界連合に働きかけるまで、花音の才能はずっと七分咲きのような状態だった。[l]天賦の才能だけで勝ち上がってきたノービス、ジュニア時代はともかく、強豪の集うシニアの場では、思うように成績が伸びなかった。[np]

 All responsibility fell onto Ikuko.[l] After last year's fiasco, Ikuko's coaching ability was called into question.[wvl]
;; 世間の目はコーチとしての郁子に向けられていた。[l]昨年の故障にいたっては、郁子のコーチとしての管理能力が激しく糾弾された。[wvl]
[nm t="郁子" s=yuu_7049]“I'm sorry, Kanon-chan. It's my fault. I'm sorry for being so inefficient.”[wvl]
;;[nm t="郁子" s=yuu_7049]“花音ちゃん、ごめんね。私で、ごめんね”[wvl]
 The mother would often apologize to her daughter.[np]
;; 母親はよく、娘に頭を下げるようになった。[np]

 [nm t="郁子" s=yuu_7050]“It's all my fault. You did nothing wrong, Kanon-chan.”[wvl]
;;[nm t="郁子" s=yuu_7050]“私が、ぜんぶ悪いのよ。花音ちゃんはなにも悪くないからね”[wvl]
 Officials and sponsors from the event, reporters, agents, school teachers... she beseeched various people in various fields.[l] Ikuko's position as Kanon's mother was a small one to begin with, but she had been demoted even further to the level of just ‘a coach.’[l] Yet at the same time, Kanon's arrogance continued to swell.[l] Kanon knew she was being arrogant, but could do nothing about it.[l] Like a rebellious child who wants to kill his parents but knows he can't actually do it, a tiny ‘devil’ was planted within Kanon's heart.[np]
;; 大会の役員、エージェント、スポンサー、スポーツ記者、学園の教員……ありとあらゆる方面に拝み倒した。[l]もともと小さかった母が、より小さいただのコーチに成り下がった。[l]そうして花音の傲慢さを加速していった。[l]花音は自分が傲慢であることを知りながら、どうにもならなかった。[l]まるで、親を殺したいと思うのだが、実際に殺せるはずもなく自分を持て余す思春期の少年のように、ささくれ立った"悪魔"を心の奥深くで養っていった。[np]

 And as it grew, that ‘Maou’ of the ice closed the doors to her heart with hatred, endlessly repeating her mother's words.[wvl]
;; 氷の上の"魔王"は、憎悪に心を閉ざし、ただ母の教えを復唱する。[wvl]
[nm t="花音" s=kan_7513]“Non-chan did nothing wrong.”[wvl]
;;[nm t="花音" s=kan_7513]“のんちゃんは、悪くない”[wvl]
 That's right.[wvl]
;; そう。[wvl]
 After all, who'd ever want to submit to anyone...?[np]
;; 誰が、頭を下げるものか……。[np]


 At last, Kanon fell to the plotting demon.[np]
;; そして、計算高い悪魔に、花音はついに足をすくわれた。[np]

 Time stopped.[wvl]
;; 時が凍りついた。[wvl]
 There was no pain, no fear.[wvl]
;; 痛みも動揺もなかった。[wvl]
 A triple lutz, then a triple toe loop.[l] Her double-triple was a surefire way to score well.[l] Yet it was not the outside edge of Kanon's right skate that collided with the ice, but her back, which hadn't come crashing down since her collision last year.[np]
;; トリプルルッツ、トリプルトゥループのジャンプ。[l]三回転+三回転のコンビネーションは上位に入るためには必須の要素だった。[l]しかし、固い氷の地面に落ちたのは、右足のアウトサイドエッジではなく、この一年間、競技会では一度も打ちつけたことのない背中だった。[np]

 ‘Strange,’ Kanon thought.[wvl]
;; おかしい、花音はようやく思った。[wvl]
 ‘Why is there no applause?[l] Why am I in such a position?[l] Why is the music leaving me behind without my permission?’[wvl]
;; なぜ、拍手がないのか。[l]なぜ、こんな体勢で演技をしているのか。[l]なぜ、かかっている曲が自分を置いて勝手に進んでいくのか。[wvl]
 The lutz is considered a particularly difficult counter-rotated jump.[l] That was exactly why Kanon had practiced so hard on it during training.[l] She'd trained until the height-distance ratio of her jump was perfected.[l] She'd continued training until the audience connected Azai Kanon herself with the triple lutz.[l] That very jump, which should have been the celebratory champagne for her glorious victory, betrayed Kanon in the eleventh hour, a mere fifteen seconds into the free skate.[np]
;; ルッツジャンプは後ろ向きに踏み切るジャンプのなかでは、最も難しいとされている。[l]だからこそ、絶対の練習を積んだ。[l]高さと飛距離を両立させた芸術に昇華させるまで。[l]観客が浅井花音といえばルッツだと騒ぐまで。[l]勝利と栄光の象徴とでもいうべきルッツが、この土壇場、フリースケーティングの開始十五秒で花音を裏切った。[np]

 ――‘I can't win.’[wvl]
;; ――勝てない。[wvl]
 ‘I'll lose.’[l] She fell on the ice and interrupted her performance.[l] She'd already lost many points.[l] With programs as precise as a machine, a single loose screw could cause total collapse.[wvl]
;; 負ける。[l]転倒に加え、演技を中断した。[l]大幅な減点。[l]機械のように精密なプログラムは、ネジが一本なくなっただけで簡単に崩壊する。[wvl]

 Feelings buried in Kanon's heart bared their fangs.[wvl]

I flipped open tonight's newspaper.[np]

They too made Kanon's disappointing performance out to be the scoop of the century.[np]

I couldn't tear myself away from the television or internet that night.[np]

If Kanon had merely fallen down, it wouldn't have been an issue, but she stopped and stared at the ice for a whole twelve seconds.[np]

Even I'm wondering why Kanon failed to stand up again.[np]

It's not rare for a skater to fall down during a competition.[np]

They make an adjustment and continue their program, no matter who they are.[np]

Hell, if they only fall down once, they still have a shot at the gold.[np]

However, Kanon continued beyond the regulated free skate duration, and skated overtime. She caused quite a ruckus amongst the spectators, and not in a good way.[np]

Cold eyes poured on Kanon from every direction.[np]

I understood the reason after listening to a television interview.[np]

At the end she covered the camera with her hand and cut the picture.[np]

...This is bad.[np]

‘Maou’ didn't make a move today.[np]

The conflict between the Sonoyama Group and the Shin'ei Group ended this morning. I felt a streak of good fortune coming on, but I guess I jumped the gun a bit with that analysis.[np]

The image of Kanon on the screen changed to something else.[np]

It was the winner of this year's Grand Prix of Figure Skating, Seta Makiko.[np]
;;Before you bitch about Prix, that's the English word for this competition. Deal with it. - pondr back in the chinese tl days

She took a moment to cry, overcome with emotion.[np]

Seta gave a solid performance today, and jumped from her fourth place spot after the short program to first place.[np]

[nm t="瀬田" s=set_7002]“‘I'm really, really thankful for everything today... that's all I want to say...’”[np]
;;[nm t="瀬田" s=set_7002]“『今日は本当に、ありがとうございました。それだけです……』”[np]

She showed no sign of acting solely for the television.[np]

She gave off nothing but a brave and hard-working aura.[np]

The contrast between these two girls will be great for the media.[np]

Kanon's coach, Hilton, refused to comment on her performance today.[np]

Why, then, did Ikuko come out and speak shamelessly?[np]

;;[nm t="郁子" s=yuu_7052]“『はい。花音にかわって、皆さんにお詫び申し上げます』”[np]

She bowed down her head and apologized to everyone honestly. It's what she's gotten used to doing.[np]

But the fact that she added, ‘on Kanon's behalf,’ annoyed me... because I knew the truth.[np]

And since she lost the Grand Prix, she would have to beat the second place skater by a large point margin to feel secure in her position.[np]

If she doesn't compete in the World Championships, she'll be ineligible come the next Winter Olympics.[np]

Kanon has already reached her prime skating years, so the upcoming Japan Championships will decide her whole career.[np]

I appeased her with a shake of my head.[np]

That skating star on the ice had vanished.[np]

[nm t="花音" s=kan_7529]“That was why I fell...”[np]

Only a desperate, love-starved girl stood before me.[np]

Like a robot doll with a loose screw, she talked more and more slowly.[np]

[nm t="花音" s=kan_7538]“......P-pl-...”[np]
;;[nm t="花音" s=kan_7538]“…………さ、い……”[np]

She spoke in a soulless, broken manner, but I understood her.[np]

‘Please save me...’[np]

‘Surely there's some gentle person out there, someone who can warm my heart.’[np]

I saw my past self in her.[np]

When I was frozen, in a broken house far in the north, I had wished for the same.[np]

I know. My emotions for Kanon are more pity than love.[np]

And pitiful it is.[np]

I'm among those godless fiends who use Kanon.[np]

But in the end, Kanon has no choice but to rely on us heretics.[np]

And devils can save people, too.[np]

Just like that snowy night, when Gonzou saved me.[np]

There are people out there who can't wait for providence to extend a holy savior's hand.[np]

I thought over what I was about to do.[np]

...Even heretics have some pride.[np]

Very well. I've decided to take responsibility.[np]

I answered Kanon's request by reaching for her cold skin.[np]
