Disclaimer: I've done this a couple of times before so for those who are familiar with me translating VK chapters from Chinese, you know the drill. The translation will inevitably be wrong in certain spots. Other areas, the dialogue could probably be worded a bit better but I want to keep everything as direct translations where-ever possible. Brackets contains my interpretations of the dodgy areas.
Also, whenever one character is speaking across several panels, I put them in separate lines.
EDIT: Underlines signify japanese translation of dodgy areas. See Narumi Maruru's comment on LJ for the details.
Titlepage: The Seventy-fifth Night: Puppet
Byline: Vampire Hunter’s Fight and – Loneliness
Zero: Kaname Kuran, hasn’t he already decided to kill out all the pureblood?
In that case, there’s no reason to stop him, in my opinion.
Back at the school
Yuuki: Where’s Aidou-senpai?
Rima: He’s taking over your duties and have ducked out for awhile
Because I cannot freely leave this place
Yuuki: Ah... but what if he does something strange and deliberately annoys the Hunter Association?
Rima: Who knows?
[Next panel, still Rima, glancing over at Sara]: Ah, Class President, for this reason, he’ll be temporarily absent.
Sara: Ah... it’s like that...
Yuuki: Please don’t let the Association carelessly aggravate Aidou-senpai
Kaito: What arrogance...
[Glancing over at Zero] Although, we already know roughly where that rascal has gone to. Oi, Zero, you saw too, right?
Zero: They’re here
Yagari: Sorry for the wait
Zero: What happened? To deliberately drag us here to the corner of the school ground?
Yagari: Because there’s something that we need to say that cannot be heard within the walls of the Association’s headquarters.
[Yuuki stands in front of Zero]
Yuuki: What are you planning to do to Zero?
Zero [Pushes Yuuki aside]: You weren’t called here. Go.
"Don't act like you own me"
Yuuki: That type of speech
That tone of disgust... it’s just like before
Yagari: It’s okay, Zero. Maybe it’s a good thing to let her hear it. We just don’t want the President to hear this.
Yagori: We don’t share the President’s viewpoints. We hope Kaname Kuran can continue what he’s doing.
Therefore... we feel, this time, his individual actions will only get in the way.
Kaname, blocking the sword: What a strange thing to ask...
You of all people here have the most experience dealing with vampires. You should know very clearly.
Kaien: I, Kaname, have thought that you’ve decided
Kaien: to walk down the path together with Yuuki.
There would come a day... when you will reveal to me the responsibilities you’ve carried on your shoulders.
When Yuuki grows up, there’s no way she can maintain her “human” self.
When that time comes, I think this time... this time it will be my turn to change Yuuki into a “human”
Kaien: Your plans from back then have not transpired. To tell you the truth, I breathed out a sigh of relief.
Because Juuri-san, they would not have wanted this type of ending... But –
After having changed your mind, is this really the path you’re going to choose?
Yuuki, somewhere deep inside, still believes in you
Kaname: That’s so like Yuuki...
Please tell Yuuki – if you tell her this, maybe she’ll realize – tell her I killed Ouri-san. Next one will be Sara Shirabuki.
Ruka looks on from the side. She glances up and notices Isaya watching from the window.
Hanabusa: Lost track of him...
Where did he go... President of the Association?
I saw the heavy expression on the President’s face as he headed off somewhere.
Due to my excellent quick-thinking (Basically, Aidou's praising himself here), I sneakily followed him here
Hanabusa: The President must have found out Kaname-sama’s whereabouts
Therefore... Kaname-sama could be somewhere close by...
[Panel, super furious Hanabusa] Feel it! My Kaname-sama sensor! (Basically, Hanabusa thinks he should be able to sense Kaname’s whereabouts)
[Panel, calm Hanabusa] That sort of thing... I would have done that sort of thing in the past... I was so naive back then...
Hanabusa: What? There’s a party nearby?
Akatsuki, looking on...
Lady with the tablets: Thank you so much
Guy handing out the pills: It’s nothing really
Akatsuki grabs the tablets as the lady walks by him
Lady: Ah! What are you doing? Give it back to me.
Hey! Give it back!
Akatsuki, with the bottle high above his head: What’s in the bottle?
Guy, setting down another jar: If it’s okay, you can take this one.
Guys runs away and bumps into Hanabusa: Ah, sorry
Hanabusa: Was there a ball or a meeting somewhere here?
Akatsuki: ... Hanabusa ...
Aidou: Eh... you...
Where have you been, I can never get ahold of you!
(Can also be interpreted as “I can’t make contact with you”)
Aidou, stepping and pausing: Huh?
Akatsuki: Sorry, Hanabusa.
Please escort this collapsed lady to the Association. Her behaviour was very strange.
Akatsuki: Also take that jar of medicine rolling around on the ground with you.
Hanabusa: Hey, wait a second.
Wait, where are you going?
Akatsuki, setting a line of fire between him and Hanabusa: Back... back to Kaname-sama’s side
Vampire girl: Hey, do you know what type these new blood tablets are?
(Not sure if she’s asking about "What do you think about these tablets" or if she's asking what blood type it is or what. The chinese characters were a bit ambiguous)
Rima: I don’t know
Girl: But... my grandmother did recommend this
Rima: To push out a new drug at such times of unrest?
Girl: I think it was under Sara-sama’s orders. It came out through Ichijou’s pharmaceutical company.
Rima: But... how is a good enough reason to take those pills?
Rima: Because it’s too quick. Did they spend enough time thoroughly testing their effects?
Rima: Us vampires are totally submerged into the human society and their politics.
But humans can kill vampires with no legal consequence. And to casually push out a relatively unknown new blood tablet.
We might have a lifespan that’s so much longer than a human’s and much stronger powers. But apart from the reputation of nobles, we really have nothing to protect ourselves. If only the Senate had better used their powers...
The reason for my bitter thoughts...
(Image of Kaname's back) is because the king of the purebloods have already betrayed us vampires...
(I have a feeling the first bit "So troubling" is wrong, but I can't figure out he's trying to get at here)
Kaname: Please... do not stop me
"you expect me to let you attack Isaya-kun's house and watch doing nothing?"
Stop joking, I haven’t yet asked you.
What are your reasons for doing this?
Kaname: It’s so simple, there’s no need to say it out loud –
"my objective has been the same all along, I just changed the road to reach it"
Kaname: As the President of the Vampire Hunter Association, you should have no problems with my actions, Kaien Cross.
Kaien: Huh, I have no wish to see the destruction of the purebloods.
(Kaname collapses into a horde of bats)
Touma: So cruel... I’ve been seriously used...
Kaien: You... you’re from the pureblood Touma clan, aren’t you?
He was controlled?
Touma: Say... how about giving me one last blow? OR In a way, it’s like giving me one final blow.
(Hard to decide what he was saying. One way of interpreting it is he wants Kaien to finish him off. But it can also be interpreted as a reference back to Chapter 61, when Kaname said “I won’t do more to you than this one last hit” as in this was Kaname’s final hit to him as punishment for what he did to Yuuki. Maybe the Japanese translation will be a lot more clearer than this.)
Kaname is serious about deciding to exterminate all the purebloods.
The man, to whom Yuuki meant everything...
(Translation may be completely off with this line)
Yuuki: Ah... In a little while, it will be morning.
Kaito: So calm... have you taken in what they’ve said?
Yuuki: If that’s a way to tell me to “go and tell your adoptive father”, it won’t work, Kaito-sensei
Kaito: Whatever. If Kaname Kuran was to destroy the purebloods, then our wishes would be fulfilled.
Chairman... If he was to know about this, he would be very saddened.
Kaito (con’t): You, also, don’t try to interfere. Although I’m saying this, in reality, you can’t do anything but stay here.
Don’t know what that rascal’s aims are. And we also don’t know much about the anti-vampire weapon he’s wielding. But it’s clear that no matter what, you will be spared.
To spare a pureblood who’s sympathetic to humankind is not a bad thing. As long as it’s just one person.
Yuuki: Just like your sensei, you should just let all those ruthless words off your chest. If there’s just me living for eternity, all the problems of the existence of purebloods will cease to exist.
Zero: I’m clearly aware of that. It’s so clear I want to forget it all.
Kaito sighs: I’m going to sleep. I’ll pass the responsibility of escorting her back to you, Zero.
Yuuki: Zero... I can’t make any promises. Because I’ve already decided, no matter what, to stop Kaname...
Yuuki: But the important people in the Hunter Association all want the purebloods to all disappear
Zero: Yes, eventually
Yuuki: Does Zero also wish for “all”?
[Panel, Yuuki’s thought] All...
Yuuki (Grabbing Zero): Is there any shade around here?
The morning rays are so painful
Zero: If you are done talking, I’ll be going
Yuuki: Sorry, I...
Yuuki: Sorry... I... I know... Just then, [flashback to when Zero was pushing her away] you were just...
Yuuki: In front of a horde of vampire hunters with killing auras, you protected me
The pair looked at each other
Yuuki: To eliminate all the purebloods, you never believed in that.
Zero is more gentle than anyone else
Therefore, your heart has not been broken.
Zero puts gun to her temple.
Yuuki: It’s okay. If I am wrong, then pull the trigger.
Besides, sooner or later, I’ll be dealt with by the Hunter Association.
(Literal translation: I’ll be picked off by the Hunter Association. As in, the vampire hunters will pick off the purebloods one at a time)
Sara walks in: Ah... what a dangerous game...
Sara walks into the scene
Yuuki: What is it?
Sara: What an attitude, am I not trusted?
What have I ever done to you?
Yuuki: Ah... nothing
Sara: I see... Even if I were to tell you secrets, it would be a waste of time.
Sara: Did you think I would carelessly reveal things to those who do not trust me?
You two... please continue whatever it was you were doing...
Takuma knocking on the door: Shiki, are you asleep?
Shiki, opening the door: What is it, Ichijou?
Takuma, smiling, holding up those tablets: I’ve got something to give you.
There's bound to be mistakes So apologies in advance
