Dragon Ball chapter 197
Translations by James “Iyouboushi” (Iyouboushi(at)gmail.com)
Note about my translations:
I’m a beginner. Some of my translations may not be very accurate.
In any case, I have done my best. These translations were used
for Manga Shouten’s releases (http://mangashouten.wordpress.com)
For now this chapter does not have the Japanese lines above it. I have lost these in the months since I did the translation. Eventually I will go back and retranscribe, but for now it’ll be English only.
PAGE 01 Gokuu: A..a tail!! You..you have a tail!! Raditz: Fu fu fu At last, you finally recognize me Gokuu: Recognize you!? What are you talking about!? PAGE 02 Raditz: Kakarotto! Have you forgotten even that? How..? Hey! Have you ever experienced a blow to the head? Gokuu: And I don't have a weird name like Kaka-whatever! I'm Son Gokuu!!! Raditz: Answer the question!! Did you hit your head as a child!? Gokuu: I did! When I was little I hit my head pretty hard Even now there's still a scar.. Raditz: Damn! I thought so! Gokuuu: But what does that have to do with anything!? Kamesennin: Gokuu..long ago, back before Son Gohan, your grandfather, died, he told me he found a baby in the woods. The baby had a tail, like a monkey, and was too wild to be tamed. But one day the baby accidently fell off a cliff. He hit his head really hard and almost died. But he was really tough and managed to pull through. After that incident his bad behavior disappeared and he became a good little boy. PAGE 03 Raditz: Keh!! Gokuu: Th..that was me!? Kamesennin: Yep! Bulma: So what does this mean? Is there a connection between him and Son-kun? Gokuu: Hey you! Just who are you?? What is it you want? Raditz: You've forgotten everything. What a trouble-maker. All right. I'll help you remember. Because I need your help from now on. PAGE 04: Kuririn: Oof... Ow ow ow Gokuu: Are you okay Kuririn!? Kuririn: Yea..yeah.. Somehow He's not some ordinary guy. His strength is amazing. Gokuu: Yeah I can see that I'm scared just standing opposite of him This has never happened before Raditz: LISTEN UP! FIRST OFF, YOU'RE NOT A HUMAN FROM THIS PLANET! YOU ARE FROM THE PLANET VEJITA. YOU BELONG TO A CLAN OF PROUD AND STRONG WARRIORS, THE BEST IN ALL OF SPACE, THE SAIYA-JIN!! PAGE 05: Kamesennin: Wha..whaa It can't be!! Raditz: And I am YOUR BIG BROTHER RADITZ!!! Kuririn: Go..Go.. Gokuu's brother!? Bulma: A sibling? No way! PAGE 06: Gokuu: NONSENSE!!! THAT'S COMPLETE NONSENSE!! Kuririn: That's right! If Gokuu is an alien then why is he on Earth now? Raditz: Fuu fuu fuu The answer is simple. Kakarotto, you were sent here to wipe out the human race! We Saiya-jin are a race of fighters. We go through the whole universe. If we find a good planet we kill the race that lives there and sell the planet at a high price to aliens who are suitable to live there. That is our job. PAGE 07: Raditz: For planets with residents of strong battle powers we send adult warriors but for low class planets like this we send babies like you. Even though you are by yourself, with all these years you should have destroyed everyone who stood in your way.. You are even lucky that this planet has a moon. Kuririn: If this stuff is really true.. It makes Piccolo seem like a cute angel Gokuu: HEY What does the moon have to do with my luck? Raditz: Stop pretending! When the moon is full we Saiya-jin perform at our best! Bulma+Kamesennin+Kuririn: ....AH..! PAGE 08: Gokuu: WHat are you talking about? Raditz: WHAT!? It couldn't be.. Your tail..what's wrong with your tail? Gokuu: It was cut off a long time ago Raditz: I can't believe what you're saying...!! YOU IDIOT! No wonder you're getting along with everyone on this planet so well Gokuu: That's enough! EVen if I'm from another planet, even if you are my brother, it doesn't matter!!! Like Kuririn said, you people are the worst!!! PAGE 09: Gokuu: I grew up here. My name is Son Gokuu!! Hurry up and leave!! Bulma: That's right!!! Kamesennin: That's right.. no matter what happened in the past, the present Son Gokuu is one of the best living people on the earth Kuririn: Gokuu has even saved this world! Go away! Go home! Raditz: Fu fu fu That is impossible The Saiya-jin are a minority to begin with and the planet Vejita was struck by a meteorite which caused it to explode Nearly all the Saiya-jin have disappeared like space dust PAGE 10: Raditz: Including our mother and father Including you there are only 4 Saiya-jin left Me and one other were saved because we were attacking anotehr planet. The other was fortunate enough to have been sent to a planet like you We just found a planet that looks like it'll sell for an exceptionally high price. We want to attack it, but it'll be a tough fight if it's just the three of us. That's when I remembered you Kakarotto. Though your fighting may not be good enough you'll still be of help to the three of us. PAGE 11: Raditz: Wake up Kakarotto!!! You'll find it thrilling! After all, the blood of the Saiya-jin is in you! Gokuu: More nonsense! I'd rather die than help you! Raditz: Fu... I see I was curious from the start but isn't that your son behind you? Gokuu: NO IT'S NOT! Raditz: There is no point in lying. Why else would he have a tail? It's proof he has Saiya-jin blood in him Gokuu: SO WHAT? PAGE 12: Raditz: As a father you're being rather disobedient Maybe I should borrow your son for a little bit Gokuu: IF YOU TAKE ONE STEP CLOSER I'LL SEND YOU FLYING! PAGE 13: Gokuu: ...Gah..! Uwaahhhhh!! Gohan: DADDY....! Raditz: Got you PAGE 14: Gohan: WAAAAAAAAAHH!! Raditz: Kakarotto! I'll look after the kid.. If you want him back alive you better do what your brother has asked you to Kamesennin: Grrrr graaahhh Kuririn: Go..Gokuu was... taken down in one strike Raditz: I'll give you one day to think about it. Well.. you really have no choice but to join us.. but I want to see that you're fully committed It's nothing complicated By tomorrow just kill 100 of this planet's humans and pile their corpses here. You hear me? I'll be looking forward to tomorrow I don't want to have to kill my brother's son if I don't have to fufufufufu Kuririn: You wouldn't You can't!
