Chapter 24: Friends
!!! page 02
Parcel: But you see,

FX: Chomp

Parcel: That new guy came.
He's a got a bad expression.

What's he called, Harvest or something?

FX: Crunch crunch

Parcel: Contractors usually have bad expressions, but he's sick.

FX: Bonk

Parcel: Are you listening, Champ?

If you're listening, respond somehow.

I know you can't do anything beyond your programming,

But since you're not a robot, just a bit…

FX: Scrutinize

Parcel: I'm going home for today.

FX: Hopping down
!!! page 03
Parcel: Later,


FX: Clunk

Parcel: ……

…That sound…

Was that you?

Champ: ……

FX: Whirring

FX: Clunk Clunk

FX: Beep beep

FX: Unlocking

Parcel: ……

FX: Footsteps
!!! page 04
FX: Whirring

FX: Whirring

FX: Creaking

Parcel: ……You…

FX: Softly

FX: Whirring

Parcel: You can do it.

Champ: Response is permitted.

Parcel: Response?

What's that?

Well, whatever.

Hee hee hee.

FX: Ka-thump
!!! page 05
Parcel: Right! We're friends,

Champ: Fri…ends…

Parcel: That's right.

Friends absolutely won't betray each other.

They won't abandon each other.

Even if it's not rational, that's the rules.
If you follow the rules, you can be friends…

When you're in a pinch, I'll definitely save you.

So you too…
!!! page 06
FX: Machine gun firing

Champ: Aah--

FX: Rat a rata rata

Champ: You…


Soldiers: His chest is virtually empty.

FX: Bang bang

Soldiers: Shoot at his chest!

FX: Gunfire

FX: Whining

FX: Gunfire

FX: Bang bang

Parcel: Thank you, Champ.
We really are friends.
!!! page 07
Parcel: ……And since we're friends,

FX: Welling up

FX: Dripping

Parcel: I won't abandon you either.

FX: Bang

Soldiers: !?

Our night vision suddenly stopped…

Parcel: Do it, Champ.

Soldiers: What the hell is this?

Parcel: Do it!

Champ: Ha

Only the Gate can recover things that have been lost.

…That's what they say.

We at Pandora, the closest to the gate, obtained it.

And now

The time to pay the price for that has come.

FX: Winking out

General: A falling star…

Another contractor is dead.

Vectrof: ……
!!! page 09
General: Since the Gate made its appearance and the false starry sky covered the world,
Almost every day many starts fall.

Now then.

Whose star is it that fell just now?

Vectrof: ……

Asuka: Mf mf mf…



!!! page 10
Asuka: Mm………!!

Pilot: Keep quiet, missy.

If you do that you won't die pointlessly.

All right?

Asuka: ……!

Vectrof: Why haven't you killed me,


General: ……

You're an excellent scientist.

Vectrof: Excellent?
Then why did you kill Mina-kun?

She was younger, and brilliant, and had more possibility than me.
!!! page 11
General: She knew too much about the black dandelion.
And she wasn't military.

Since she left Pandora quietly she antagonized us over important things.
And besides, she colluded with BK-201.

Vectrof: The one who did that was me.

General: Hmf.
I know that.

But it's obvious that you, having a certain status within the Syndicate, would be treated differently from that girl.

There are voices saying to kill you, that they don't want to make waves, as well.

Vectrof: Is that the difference that can divide life and death?

General: You ought to know it well, Sergei Vectrof.

Death is always an unreasonable thing.

Soldier: General!

FX: Slap

General: What is it?
!!! page 12
Soldier: Whispering


General: ……


Soldier: Whispering

Vectrof: ?

FX: Crackle

General: There's not much time.

Before we leave here

FX: Unsnap

General: There's one last thing I want to make sure of.
Sergei Vectrof.

Vectrof: ……
!!! page 13
General: What?

It's a simple choice.

FX: Clack

General: As a scientist, you should have no doubt.

Soldier: Vice-commander!

FX: Shaking


Soldier: Vice-commander Cain!

Cain: Nrgh……

He broke my arm……shit!

Where are the rest of the guys?

What about that huge guy?
What happened to the mission?
!!! page 14-15
Cain: He…

FX: Emptiness

Cain: Is he dead…?

Soldier: Yeah, he's dead.

He suddenly stopped moving during the battle.

He was burned or hemorraghed to death.

Cain: …It certainly does smell like grilled meat.

Soldier: There are two more dead over here.

The other survivor went ahead to inform the general…

…And we found a female doll standing and hiding in the bathroom.
Since there's no time, we took you, vice-commander, first…

FX: Sudden
!!! page 16
FX: Soft footsteps

Soldier: !?

Cain: What the hell is she…

Yin: …

Cain: She just showed up here nonchalantly.
!!! page 17
FX: Creak

FX: Whispering

Cain: …A doll, huh? I have a bad feeling about this.
I don't care. Shoot her.

Soldier: Understood.

Yin: ……

It's impossible.

Cain: What?

Yin: For you guys.
!!! page 18-19

FX: Thwack
!!! page 20
FX: Thud


FX: Gasping

Hei: Yin!

Yin: Hei.

Hei: Yin…

FX: Squeeze
!!! page 21
Yin: ……


FX: Grip

Hei: Sorry I'm late……

…Is Champ dead?

Yin: Nod

Hei: …There's no one but Mina below.
Where's Parcel?

!!! page 22
Soldiers: I brought this.

FX: Tossing

FX: Thud

Parcel: Ugh.

FX: Crash

Vectrof; Parcel!

General: Ha ha ha.
!!! page 23
General: …So the star that fell earlier wasn't his?
……But his wounds are very serious.

My guess is his star will fall very soon.

Vectrof: Quickly, treatment--!

General: Don't panic, Sergei.

There's five seconds left until the explosion.

Vectrof: What? ……

FX: Thundering

FX: Rumbling

Vectrof: !?

General: Even if you don't worry, the wind tower itself won't shake.

It'll just fill up the interior with sea water.

FX: Rushing waves

Hei: !! …

FX: Rushing

Hei: Hold on, Yin!
!!! page 24
Hei: Shi--

FX: Cough cough

FX: Water bubbling

General: The entrance is shut.

FX: Rumbling

General: It will be difficult for even BK-201 to get out alive.

…I didn't think he'd do for that Barry, but…

FX: Rumbling

General: We'll collect the remains of the subordinates after six hours.

…And now for you, Sergei.

As I thought, it's not so easy to forgive a traitor.

You can work to return to the Syndicate and for the human race.

FX: Flip

FX: Click

General: This is your last chance.

Vectrof: ……!!

General: Blow this kid's head open.

Yay, new chapter! I love this translation, with the FX added in.
Ah, Vectrof's moral ambiguity is being put to the test. And Champ and Parcel are adorable, as use. Plus Yin! I am so excited to read this together with the images. Did you say you had raw scans?
