Chapter 24 + lovely color

warning: awesome chapter ahead. don’t read below and just jump to the chapter, don’t waste ur time.

either way, there’s a phrase in there that goes ‘恋焦がれる色【こいこがれるいろ】’. and i was like ‘wut’s dat O_O’. yeah, actually the chapter had a lot of those moments xD but anyway, that’s the one that the more… interesting. and the only one i couldn’t really solve. Koigareru iro.

Koigareru is: to yearn for; to be deeply in love with.

and iro is: color.

but ‘a color that i yearn for’ made little sense in there… ok, maybe it did fit, but it seemed to be some sort of expression so i had to ask google sensei xD such expression seems to be used only for ‘black’ and ‘white’,  apparently because they are a color which is ‘purely that color’? maybe xD anyway, that’s what i wrote. if someone knows the correct answer, i’ll draw a smiley face in your forehead and give you a candy! :D not hugs, cause i’m allergic to those. who would want contact with another human being, anyway… you’d better not comment on that. the original sentence is: 自分の恋焦がれる色に染まれるのだ, where jibun probably refers to ‘him/his’.

going to use the chance that i’m using my computer to fix some things around~ have a nice beauty sleep~

  1. Just when I declared I wouldn’t read 23 until the next one came…. THE NEXT ONE CAME!!!!! yayayyayayayayayayayayayay!!! Thanks so much for all your hard work!!! Also there’s this thing in japanese where lovers yearn to be “dyed in his/her color” it’s probably from the manyoushu or something. Lots of weird things like that are from famous ancient Japanese poetry.

    Hmm, I don’t know if it’s connected… but “Apology” doesn’t always means that you’re sorry and regret your previous doings.

    It used to mean “a speech in one’s own defence”.

    Also, Japanese “Iro” that’s literally translated as colour can also be interpreted as “mood” or “atmosphere”. If you want a catch-all it’s closer to “something that dyes or permeate” whether the one being permeated is fabric or atmosphere or person. Um, it’s badly put, but that’s how it is.

    “Being dyed in someone’s colour” probably means to be totally consumed by them.

    Since I do not know the context of the words, I reckon 恋焦がれる色 is probably either the atmosphere of being totally in love. Or behaviour that indicates being totally in love. Maybe.

      I didn’t know that about ‘apology’ :0
      So she basically wants to be dyed in his lovestruck color? XD that could also be put as enveloped in his love struck mood… does that last one sound better in English? Although the part about her wanting to be immersed into the black of his eyes that is implied would he lost….

        Maa, that’s difficult, I went and looked at the raw and then your translation. My Japanese is lower than kindergarten level, though, so what I caught from that paragraph is that she’s lamenting that it would be easy to drown in the captain’s black eyes, to be drunk in his lovestruck obsession of her. How wonderful would that be.

        Well, don’t take my word for it. I’m a total amateur, I read ahead by 2 mtl and njstar warpro :D and relying on what I pick up off my little sister.

          I think rather than “How wonderful would that be” It’s probably more correct to say “It would have been so wonderful (regretful tone)”

          Oh, Vito, Vito, Vito… If only you know….

    KILL ME PLEASE. OMG THIS IS HEART FAILURE I CAN’T. I feel so burnt out from all the squeals and squirming and hugging my pillow! Captain’s reaction overwhelms me, I feel so weak and powerless… (T///^///T) Darn it, Captain! This is all your fault from dropping such a bomb, I feel like I can kill you from all the love! I’ll cross dimensions for you, you know?! Ahaha. i feel satisfied, there’s so much moe overload, I’m going to digest this all week. Mhm.

    Thanks for the chapter and making my heart stop Ninish-san! This is so bad for me ugh. I feel like Captain just got his switch flipped, he’s going to be a carnivor all of a sudden or something and kill us all with his moves. ;_;

    Thanks for this great chapter :)!

    This freaking guy. Holy s…t hes hilarious :D. And reactions of our cute little lass about his shenanigans only maked it better. Im also little suprised… I mean all of them about Vito being Dragon, they take it quite good? Well there wasnt any screaming or storm of questions. And yet again reaction the Captain presented us… In a long time I didnt saw something so funny and heartwarming.

      That’s probably cause they reacted while she was slaughtering the neighbors :3 then she went and licked the captain… in the meantime they were probably gossiping like high school girls xD

  11. Ah, Captain is too adorbs! He is definitely gonna stick to Vito like a shadow when they get back to the castle.
    Oh, and I think the weird “i’m such a lass”line that had to do with the puss thing? I think it’s something like “wearing a cat”, a japanese idiom meaning pretending to be innocent as in her pretending not to be a dragon. Maybe. Japan has A LOT of cat idioms :P
    Thanks for the chapter!

    Ermm, I just noticed something people :) .Well Vito and Captain were doing this lovey-dovey couple act… on the battlefield. Battlefield, where just moments ago Vito was biting people heads off, burning them to crisp, trampling and crushing them into bloody mess. Battlefield which literally is sprayed with blood and filled with corpses and burned grounds. When you think about adding this knowledge its even more hilarious. I think its adding something more to this scene. Hell, this entire series have some really moe gap moments :D
