Ah… I really love Ais and this scene the best from the whole manga.


Mile chapter 73: Earl vs Master

ED: Lowe

◎ Talesu Town – stadium

This time, Mil… Evening Dress Mask is the one who attacks.

It is high-speed combat.
Mile got her sword ready and quickly dashed to attack the Earl’s left flank.
And the Earl who receive it with his sword bounces back.
Mile swings the sword again to attack the Earl.

After that, intense sword clash continued.

Because the Earl has a dignified straight-ahead match as a knight, so rather than moving around like the battle with Guren, Mile had changed to more suitable power to face the Earl.
There was not much movement, a fierce battle that continued between attack and defends using swords.
It seemed to be a disadvantage for a hunter with a small build, but it had nothing to do with Mile.

Originally, her sword skill as a hunter was also poor, so it didn’t matter much how she fought.
Speed ​​and power. It was only what Mile pursuit.

On other hands, the Earl began to feel impatient.
It was because the skill of the opponent was very poor.

Usually, a swordsman who has decent sword skill can’t win against a very skillful swordsman. He can overcome by technique, exceeding speed, exceeding judgment and reading the movements of the opponent beforehand.

However, amateurs make unexpected movements. You can’t read their movementsAlthough amateur is inferior in technique and speed, there’s a high chance they can land an unexpected blow on you.

And his opponent has amateur sword skill but she swings the sword with speed and power exceeding the expert.

It was dangerous. It was a terribly dangerous opponent.

A moment of carelessness will become a fatal injury, a powerful high-speed consecutive blow that he can’t read the movement ahead at all.

The Earl had to keep concentrating, which forced him to exhaust abnormally.

If it is a normal amateur, he just needs to bait his opponent to attack and quickly counter blow to defeat them.

However, the small girl in front of him blocked all his attacks. Why? how can she react to all his attacks when her skill is poor.

The battle continues and the end can’t be seen.

The Earl gradually suffered from fatigue, and the impatience began to rise.

 

(In this way, equal… no, for real?
How can this little girl really be all right with all this?
She kept attacking with ridiculous speed and power for a long time but neither her speed or power decrease.
Besides, there are no fragments of fatigue and impatience.
Well, no doubt, she was playing with me…
Impossible, there can’t be such a thing!)  (Earl’s inner thought)

 

Impatience and fatigue create disturbances and a gap in his defense.

 

*Ga~cha~ri* (SFX)

“U~u …”  (Earl)

 

The part near the handle of the blade was struck and the Earl dropped his sword.
The Earl wasn’t careless.
He was beaten with speed and heavy blow and his hands are numbed to the point he dropped the sword.
His sword was dropped on the ground.

Cheers are rising up from the audience.
As a knight, what a blunder.
What a humiliation.
He can’t stop the flushing of his face or the trembling of his arms.

 

“Please, pick up as soon as possible”  (Mile)

“What …”  (Earl)

(She already won even without a victory declaration and it doesn’t seem like she makes fun of me.
If it is normal, I will hold my stupid pride, kick the practice sword and leave, but this time I didn’t go.
This battle is an important factor for my beloved daughter.
I can’t allow her to keep doing dangerous hunter operations as she is.
Definitely.
I don’t doubt my son’s victory.
And even if it is one thousandth, I can not ignore the possibility of exposing my daughter’s life to danger.
No matter how much hopeless this battle is, no matter how much I will be shame in public and show an unsightly figure, I can’t abandon this match) (Earl’s inner thought)

 

The Earl picked up the sword and set it up again.

And after 30 minutes.
There was a figure of Earl Austin with both hands and knees on the ground.
It was already his limit.
He has neither the power to stand up nor the power to grip the sword.

Complete defeat.
There was no other word to express.

 

“Is it okay that I win?”  (Mile)

 

With Mile’s confirmation question, the Earl silently nodded.

And big applause and cheers were raised for Mile who returns to the standby place and the Earl which borrowed a shoulder from one subordinate and returned to the standby place on the other side.

There is no one laughing at the Earl in this place.

The Earl was strong.

He was strong enough to win B rank, no even A rank hunter.

However, the other party was bad. That’s it.

Even everyone applause, but the Earl was distorted.

There is no anger or hate to his opponent.

On the contrary, he admired that girl’s strength.

For a hunter that young with poor technique but to have that strength and speed.

It’s self-taught, she put all effort and just continued with self-discipline.

Exactly, she deserves praise.

The wrath of the Earl was against his own dishonesty, and it was a self – hatred for not being able to secure his daughter’s safety with his own hands.

The Earl who finally returned to the waiting place, telling his trusting son.

 

“… Absolutely win, never give up.”  (Earl)

“…Yes!”  (Weiln)

 

And Austin’s eldest son, Weiln von Austin.  (ウェイルン: Ueirun)

To bring back his beloved sister, he turns his heart into a demon, heads towards his sister’s fight.

Weiln regrets.

After three boys, Austin family finally got the first daughter, Maevis.

Parents and grandparents, as well as the three older brothers, were loving her.

As a princess of the Austin family, Maevis was brought up without any inconvenience. After watching all three elder brothers training with sword and she said she also wants to try it herself.

The three brothers don’t agree to it, but they’re afraid to be hated by Maevis. So they secretly tried to help her practice only some form and unexpectedly Maevis was quite talented, the three brothers were surprised.

And since they don’t want their cute little sister to be attacked by a man. They taught her the necessary self-defense skills.

And when Weiln was alone, he can’t resist Maevis who came to ask “Ani-sama, I want to practice sword with you”, and he trained her variously with the eldest son’s privilege.

After that, he found out that Maevis had also gone to other brothers and she was doing 3 times the amount of training he was thinking.

And in their knight ceremony, their adorable little sister is staring at the ceremony with shining eyes. For their cute little sister to admire them, made them many times happier becoming knights.

At first, they thought Maevis was only admiring them, they didn’t realize that she is yearning to become knight herself. Furthermore, they failed to stop their little sister to run away from home, chasing her dream to become a knight.

 

(…Failure.
If I noticed it earlier, maybe I still can’t change Maevis interests.
But at least I could have stopped her from running away from home.
It was a great failure.
However, I will not fail this time.
I will take Maevis home.
In the name of the eldest son of Austin) (Weiln’s inner thought)

“Had you been well, Eldest Ani-sama?” (Maevis)

 

Brother and sister face each other in the center of the stadium.

 

“It’s about eight months.
We’ve been missing you a lot…
However, I will not be able to hold back today.
I will be careful to my utmost not to injure you, but it may hurt a little bit.” (Weiln)

 

Maevis smiles bitterly with the words of Weiln.

 

“Eldest Ani-sama.
I will not be a child forever.
I’m now a leader of a C-ranked hunter party 『Red Oath』
And I will show you what I’ve become!” (Maevis)

 

When saying so, Maevis pulls practice sword.

Weiln also pulls out the sword.

 

“Let’s fight” (Maevis + Weiln)

  3. Thanks for the chapter!

    As someone who has trained in medieval fencing I feel the Earl’s pain… You train for so many hours to stop attack A with Parry B that when an amateur uses attacks with random angles (45 degree are the sharpest, or to be clearer perpendicular to the surface attacked, is what you expect) your brain gets in the way of your reflexes from picking the right parry.

    When he talks about baiting with a false opening then counter attacking, it’s the best solution, force him/her to overextend and strike when out of balance, it’s safer that way then fighting normally.

  4. Thanks 4 the chapter!

    Mile relies on her “average” strength and “average” speed to make up for her mediocre sword skills. The Earl hasn’t approached, or surpassed “average”, of course he lost.

    Like

    • Her sword skill is also “average”, except this time it’s the average of all humanoid races. And it turns out a lot of humanoid commoners suck at sword techniques 😦

  5. I tried editing the whole chapter once (first time doing something like editing…) but as I’m not a native speaker, I may not really be the cream of the crop. If your interested, I can send you the edited chapter as a pdf (I’ll need an email though). I put lot’s of EDN (Editor Notes) inside, especially if I perceived a phrase as confusing or I thought I may have changed too much. I’d be happy about a reply and if you are fine with it, I’d edit one or two chapter a week until september (university starts again, though I’m also going on holidays at the start of August). Well, that’s about it. Thanks for your hard work, I really appreciate it.

    PS: I can also post a link to a drive folder if you’d prefere not to give away your E-Mail…

  9. Greetings and thanks for the chapter. I have commented a few times before about but I was wondering if you’re interrested in me doing all the corrections in a comment for you daily as you after you upload the chapter ? I am not perfect myself but I notice quite a few small errors either in grammar or in the flow of the text.

      • Allright, I will try to keep track of when you upload tomorrow and if I have time I will see if I can go through some of the previous chapters. Thanks for your hard work on the series, really was dead for a while so it’s pleasant that it’s being attended to again.

  10. “There are no one laugh at the Earl in this place.

    The Count was strong.”

    You probably mean the same person in both cases, so I’m guessing ‘Count’ was supposed to be ‘Earl’?

    It’s an easy error, since the definition of ‘Earl’ is basically, ‘A Count of Britain or Ireland.’ They both translate はくしゃく
