Arakure Chp 47 Translation

Here’s Arakure Chp 47.  At the expense of his own feelings, Azuma finally “mans-up” in order to push Sachie and Rakuto together.  Unfortunately, it’s gonna take a few chapters for Sachie to sort out her feelings.  I think this chapter is okay, though, I don’t understand why the mangaka acts as though Rakuto has never told Azuma how he feels about Sachie.  It came up when Azuma found the New Years card and Rakuto told Azuma that if he confessed to Sachie, then he “wouldn’t be able to stop.”  It also seemed weird that Azuma is shocked by the appearance … Continue reading Arakure Chp 47 Translation

Arakure Chp 46 Translation’s Arakure chapter 46. Link to Arakure Chp 46 So … I don’t want to give away what happens, but there’s significance in Japanese culture about what name you call a person by and it comes into play in this chapter.  People are called by their first name only by family and really close friends.  It is basically a sign of intimacy.   Therefore, when the person you like calls you by your first name, it’s a big deal and escalates the relationship.  In the Viz version of the manga, Sachie calls Igarashi “Rakuto” from the start, whereas in the … Continue reading Arakure Chp 46 Translation

Arakure Chp 45 Translation

Here is “Arakure” Chp 45.  This concludes the story arc about Rakuto and his father.  I think this chapter, although good,  is unnecessarily long … but I guess, the mangaka had to come up with 30-pages of something.  Anyhow, here’s the link: Link to Arakure Chp 45 The next chapter begins a new story arc.  Rakuto finally uses his “Anything” coupon and Azuma stumbles onto Rakuto’s secret connection to Sachie … look forward to it!

Arakure Chp 44 Translation

Here’s “Arakure” Chp 44.  I have to apologize now for the poor translation.  The Head Chef speaks in thick colloquialisms and uses lots of contracted words, so I had to take a guess with the words I could figure out as to what he could be saying.  I searched the Internet for clues, but ultimately, I decided that I wouldn’t find anything definitive in the amount of time I was willing to devote to the search.  Hopefully, I was able to reasonably infer his dialog.  It’ll be interested to see the Viz translation for comparison.  Anyhow, there’s a nice two … Continue reading Arakure Chp 44 Translation

Arakure Chp 43 Translation is chapter 43.  In this chapter we learn a little more about Rakuto’s past and Sachie begins to show more of her feelings towards Igarashi.  It’s an important chapter and from looking at the chapters ahead, I think this may be climax of the story.  Yep, we’re coming to the end, but it’s a drawn out ending over the next 14 chapters, so don’t get sad it’s ending yet. Link to Arakure 43 As for what’s next … well, there are a couple of Ouran side stories from Lala DX that haven’t been translated yet, so I’m thinking of … Continue reading Arakure Chp 43 Translation
