After seeing Kanon off the next morning, I head to my desk.[np]
;;翌朝、花音を送り出してから、おれは机に向かっていた。[np]

*page4|
It's nearly the end of the year, and I've been neglecting my Azai Corporation work recently.[np]

There are only two days left before the tournament.[np]

*page8|
I bought a magazine this morning after seeing Kanon's name on the cover.[np]
;;朝方買ってきた週刊誌に、花音の記事があった。[np]

*page8b|
The article's title:[np]

*page9|
‘Azai Kanon's Connections to Underworld Crime Syndicates Revealed!!!’[np]
;;『浅井花音と暴力団の関係に迫る!!!』[np]
;;Might consider making this more flashy. To reflect american headlines

*page10|
The public has always kept its knowledge about Kanon and the Sonoyama Group on a somewhat tacit level.[np]
;;たしかに、花音が園山組組長の娘であることは暗黙の了解となっている風潮があった。[np]

*page11|
They can never prove anything, of course, but rumors have run rampant all through the press, both online and in hard copy formats.[np]
;;決して公になることはないが、週刊誌やインターネット上では周知の事実として噂されていることだった。[np]
;;this is supposed to be elaborating on the previous sentence. It's never made official, but rumors assuming it as established truth would appear in weekly magazines and on the internet. Also, until now in the previous line should probably be cut. Since this article is about her connection through Kyousuke, and page 10 is specifically speaking about her connection as a daughter of the leader.

*page12|
All it takes is the slightest show of weakness or vulnerability. Any opening whatsoever, and the media will jump on it.[np]
;;やはり、弱みを見せれば食いついてくる。[np]

*page13|
One of the pages showcased a picture of Kanon leaving my apartment with a man who looked like me.[np]
;;誌面には、花音がおれらしき男と、このマンションから出てくる姿が掲載されていた。[np]

*page14|
The article's twist implied that she was engaging in illicit affairs; right before a major competition, no less.[np]
;;大会を前にしてさも男遊びに興じる女のような書かれ方だった。[np]

*page15|
An anonymous liaison identified me as a goon involved in an organized crime syndicate.[np]
;;関係者Aとかいう事情通が、おれを暴力団の手先と評している。[np]
;;yay Japanese news/magazine terms that I don't know how to translate because I have practically no experience with the news of my own country. 関係者(I put Party A) is more literally, "the party involved A" but that's a mouthful and awkward so I squashed it down. 事情通 is the term given to the interviewee who has knowledge on the subject at hand. Expert goes a little too far technically but, eh that's why I tried to counterbalance with quotes to make it seem ironic. If editor has any better ideas feel free to use them.

*page16|
Goddammit... I didn't even realize my picture had been taken.[np]
;;まったく、いつ写真を撮られたのかもわからなかった。[np]

*page17|
I violently threw the magazine into the rubbish bin and began to brainstorm a damage control plan.[np]
;;週刊誌を投げ捨てて、今後の対策を考えた。[np]

Last time, he barged into the editors' office and gave them a good thrashing. But this time he's just sitting on the sidelines.[np]

*page21|
I had planned to utilize my connections with the publisher to pressure them into changing their story, but that would be useless. Every editor in Japan is conspiring against Kanon, trying to make her into the next big scoop.[np]
;;出版社のつてを使って圧力をかけたり、別の話題を持ち上げるよう画策したが、現場の編集者たちが一致団結して花音をスクープすると決めているらしい。[np]

*page22|
Every last one of them has turned their backs on her.[np]
;;もはや、大きなうねりとなって花音を敵視している。[np]

*page23|
It wouldn't be all that big of a stretch to say the whole country is rejecting Kanon.[np]
;;いま、日本中が、花音を拒絶しているといっても過言ではなかった。[np]
;;that far of a stretch used in place of exaggeration. Note for good measure.

*page24|
Instead of getting worked up over her popularity, she needs to buckle down and produce some results.[np]
;;あれこれと風体を気にするより、もう結果を出すしかない。[np]

*page25|
But in Kanon's state...[np]
;;ただ、花音本人があんな状態では……。[np]

;;[nm t="花音" s=kan_7639]“だって、あの子、いままでずっとわたしにへこへこしてたもん”[np]
;;へこへこ is usually used to mean butter up or make yourself seem lower than someone, usually used on your superiors at a job(or someone who's superior to you in your field or something) I think she's implying that up until now she only acted nice with her because Kanon was ‘better than her’ because Kanon was always better at jumps. I'm just saying it for the sake of saying since your version arguably flows the conversation along better regardless of the original.
;;Line is kinda long in Japanese for short english line... voices won't match. I'm not too attached either way, but putting it in is more like to get noticed than just making a note, so take your pick. - pondr

I finally realized Kanon wasn't as confident as she let on.[np]

And because she lacks confidence, she's taking it out on me.[np]

Only Japanese athletes will be participating in the Japan Championships. Thus, it's likely to become a one-on-one match between Seta and Kanon.[np]
;;今度の全国大会は日本選手だけの戦いだから、おそらく花音と瀬田の一騎打ちになる。[np]

Kanon never saw Seta as a threat, so it must have been quite a shock to her pride to be beaten by her.[np]

 A ‘devil’ had been nesting in Kanon's heart.[l] It occasionally bore its sharp fangs at Seta, and made Kyousuke wince more than once.[l] It had been getting out of hand lately.[np]

 Who cares about the Olympics...?[wvl]
 ――This damn woman.[wvl]
;; ――こいつか。[wvl]
;;TLC plox.
;;This is technically answering the question she presents in page 246.
 Kanon wonders why she's spent half her life in flashy costumes on the cold ice, and glares at the individual before her.[wvl]
;;花音は自分がなぜ、人生の半分以上の時間を、派手な衣装を着て、冷たい氷の上にいるのかを考え、目の前の人物を凝視した。[wvl]
 In Kanon's eyes, Ikuko is an abomination.[l] No matter how many hostile gazes Kanon hurls upon her, she never breaks her smile.[l] Kanon's eyes turn toward the woman, only to find her watching Kanon, her face plump like a rice cake.[l] Ikuko didn't even seem to care that Kanon had stopped calling her ‘Mom’.[np]
;;Noting abomination used here instead of monster. Apparently, the term has been used before, so if appropriate, please change it's other instances
;;Surely you don't mean "To the Monster and my beloved Hero"? I don't remember the word being used for Ikuko...
;;Also, what's up with the fifty different ways that the lines are indented? I just made them all the tabs.
;;Three comments for good measure. Why does everyone say Ikuko is fat?! She sure as hell ain't drawn that way. I think her sprite is hot.
;;Regarding ‘monster', it's a theme created at this point. Ikuko is referred to as 怪物 here, also page 282 of this script, page 90 of script k08, and page 178 of script k09. If you want to centralize that, be my guest. I'm pretty sure abomination is used twice but a combination of beast/monster is used elsewhere.
;;郁子は、花音にとって怪物だった。[l]どれだけ敵意込めた視線を投げても、まるでゼリーを指で押したかのように笑顔を崩さない。[l]餅みたいにふっくらとした顔で、花音の世話を焼こうとする。[l]お母さん、と呼ばなくなったところで、意に介した様子がない。[np]

 She said so with her eyes wide open, her voice imbued with conviction.[l] Kanon felt disgusted with her mother.[l] She was acting like she understood Kanon.[wvl]
;; 目をかっと見開き、力を込めて言った。[l]理解者然として立ち振る舞う母親が、不気味でしかたなかった。[wvl]
 Kanon has never heard a single positive opinion about her mother.[l] Everyone scorns her and scoffs at her.[l] They call her inflexible, overly self-conscious, and greedy, and say her arrogance knows no bounds.[l] Ikuko brags that she does all that for the purpose of taking on the role of an antagonist, all for the sake of acting as a filter to draw negative attention away from Kanon.[wvl]
;;Could we use narcissistic in place of overly self soncious? Or am I on the wrong line of thought.
;;Narcissism is self-love. Being overly self-conscious is simply being too concerned with oneself, it doesn't imply you have positive feelings. In fact, the connotation (though not in this context) is often that one has negative feelings about oneself.
;;ON ANOTHER NOTE: Um, the last sentence has no subject. Who's saying that?
;;花音は、母親のいい噂など聞いたこともなかった。[l]誰もが軽蔑し、嘲るようなささやき声を響かせる。[l]融通が利かず、自意識に貪欲で、横柄さは底を知らない。[l]それを、郁子は、自ら汚れ役を買って出て、花音のフィルターとして機能するためだとうそぶいた。[wvl]
