xxxHOLiC Rou 213 translation (complete)

I owe many people thanks relating to this manga: [livejournal.com profile] ladydarkmoon and [livejournal.com profile] ashura_sama for scans and translations, which I read when I was first getting into the manga (back when I was just starting to learn Japanese!); [livejournal.com profile] chibiyuuto for encouragement and unflagging CLAMP enthusiasm; [livejournal.com profile] nokiirat for help scanning and for being a champion mod; and [livejournal.com profile] scottishrefugee, for scanning the pages I sent from Japan every week. Thanks as well to everyone who's commented on these translations; your support has meant a lot. Without further ado…

ETA: The raws are missing pages 26 and 27; I'll update the translation when they become available. Missing pages added, with thanks to anonymous!

Once the harvest is in and the animals put away for the winter/To stand at the uncomprehending window cultivating the desert/With salt tears which will never do anyone any good. )

With apologies for the delays to all concerned, and thanks to Fail Manga for the raws. DTB 27, the Gate 7 one-shot, and hopefully HOLiC 211 should be done sometime next week. ETA 3/24/11: Added the last two pages that were inserted at the end of this chapter in volume 19.

There was a key to everything in that oak forest/But a sad one. )

Thanks to Rena-chan for the raws--if you're able, please consider chipping in to help her continue to be able to provide scans! (Thanks also to Anonymous for the camera raws, on which I did the first few pages of this. Sorry I couldn't put it out sooner.)

There was no life you could live out to its end/And no attitude which, in the end, would save you. )

Then everything, in her belief, was to be submerged/And soon. )

Thanks to Rena-chan for the raws. Please consider chipping in here to help her keep buying the magazines if you've got a few bucks to spare.

And in vagrant shadow her mothball truth is eaten./In cool, like-it-or-not shadow the humdrum is consumed. )

Camera raws can be found here thanks to anonymous. Also, this chapter was ridiculously well timed, and in some ways so is my translation. Enjoy the equinox, all! 

If you ever get close to a human, and human behavior... )

Somehow this manga turned into a tragedy when I wasn't looking.

So I translated "pearl" as "butterfly" last time. Whoops.

I've got to run to work right now, so I'll fix that in the relevant chapter and finagle the formatting in this chapter when I get back later tonight. Finished! 

No time for clever cut text! )
