Let’s Play Hatoful Boyfriend: Holiday Star! – Fallen Angel Chronicles – Absolute Zero Part 4

 

Today we’re getting into some stuff you won’t appreciate much if you haven’t read all of Hatoful Boyfriend, including BBL.

043

ryuuji

So you got another proposal accepted, huh?
The Second Division sure is impressive!

tohri5

Hoho, naturally! We are talking about me, here, after all.
I feel terrible for all the biologists here– having to work under an empty-headed bird like you.

044

souma1

…I can’t see any reason why the biologists here would need any pity from you.

tohri5

What’s that?
Who is he? One of yours?

ryuuji

Oh, is this the first time you two have met? This is our newest friend, Isa Souma!
Come on Isa, say hello to Nishikikouji.

souma1


I am Isa.

tohri5

A useless leaders, and researchers who don’t even know how to greet their betters!
The future of the biology division is the bleakest thing I have ever seen.

ryuuji

What are you talking about? Isa’s great!
He’ll probably be the department head someday. I bet you two will get along just fine!

souma1

002

tohri6

Again?!
My results cannot be inferior to his… this is a dream!
Just a bad dream!

Isa Souma.
I can never claim the spotlight as long as he is here.
But I must be the best! I have already decided I must!

I was worried about that feral, but he was no trouble.
Our spheres of research never overlapped…

Nothing good has come of Isa’s taking over the division!
My beautiful, glorious Second Optical Weapons Division… how can its name be so trod into the ground?!

…Isa’s origins are a mystery.
Something is definitely not right here! The value they place in him must be mistaken!

Only his proposals ever get accepted.
My talents will rot in his shadow… this tragedy reeks of deceit and intrigue!

I have no wish for depravity and decay.
I shall gladly leave.

045

The next day…

Today is Mister Nishikikouji’s silly Destroy Saint Pigeonation’s with a Giant Laser Day!

hiyoko

We have to protect our school!

There’s the staticky blip of a radio.

Oh! It’s Yuuya!

Yuuya

Salut, mon amie.
This is Sakazaki. I’m in front of the Golden Weekly HQ.
Over.

hiyoko

Report situation.

Yuuya

Everything’s as you predicted.
There’s a giant laser inside the building.

It’s installed on the roof, and I think they’re adjusting the aim.
Take a look with a telescope.

They’re preparing already!?
Where’d I put the telescope…

sakuya2

Failure to act with speed in such a situation is…
Here, use this.

hiyoko

Thank you!
You’re always so well-prepared, Sakuya!

Let’s see, the building should be over…

046

hiyoko

Waaah! I-it’s huge!

sakuya2

It appears to be charging up.
What is wrong with Japan’s public security forces? Why is he able to have a weapon like that?

My thoughts exactly.

hiyoko

Given the size…

047

I knew it!
He’s got even more otaku hooked up than the two I saw yesterday!

This is too much.
If he turns the fantasies and delusions of that many otaku into power for a weapon… it might just be unstoppable!

045

hiyoko

We could be obliterated at any moment. What are situations like this called again?
‘Attention or die’?

sakuya2

‘Emergencies’?

hiyoko

Yes! Those!

sakuya2

Can’t you even remember basic English terminology?
Humans, I swear…

Anyway, we need to prepare.
Aren’t you on defence? Leave observation to me and return to your station.

hiyoko

Yes, sir!

That’s right, I have the extremely important job of defending from whatever attack comes our way.

This is a real battle. If we fail, the school burns!
My blood is boiling already!

story45

nanaki2

Ah, Tosaka… we were waiting for you.

ryouta3

Hurry, we need to get ready!

hiyoko

Sorry to keep you waiting!

anghel10

The hour of judgement draws near!
We must disrupt the Light of Dark Judgement with Arcane Waves!

Anghel, Ryouta, Mister Nanaki and I are on defence.
Time for Operation Pretty Coore Shield!

Fight fire with fire, and hallucinogenic Fillipino dove powers with hallucinogenic Fillipino dove powers! If Mister Nishikikouji can power his weapon with Anghel’s abilities, we can fight him off with those same abilities!

If we try hard enough and believe in each other… Anghel’s powers can make us all into magical girls!

ryouta3

Ryouta is Coore Grey!

nanaki2

Mister Nanaki is Coore Light Grey!

hiyoko

I’m Coore Dark Grey!

anghel10

And Anghel is the faerie who granted the Pretty Coore girls their mighty powers, Haricot!

With the four of us together, we can raise a Pretty Coore Barrier to protect the school from Mister Nishikikouji’s nefarious plans!

ryouta3

Are we really going to save the school with a joke like this…?

hiyoko

This isn’t a joke!
This! Is! PRETTY COORE!

nanaki2

I’m not sure, Tosaka…
Would a Pretty Coore shout like that?

anghel10

I shall invoke the defensive right of old… Shining Pretty Coore Field!

hiyoko

Anghel’s giving it his all!
We just have to believe in each other, okay?
We can do this!

048

tohri7

Aah… an excellent day!
Hardly a cloud obscures Japan’s lovely face, and every corner and recess of Littledove City is bared before me!

The ghosts of the past, which have pained me these long years… that damnable partridge, who was always in my way!
And the institution that let my genius wither!

It is time to say farewell to them all!
I shall wash them clean away, and then it will be time to step into a brand new world of imagination!
As the sun rises above, a new–

A phone rings.

Editor

Chief Editor, sir. Should we set the deadline for this year’s new face award to the end of March, like last year?

The “New Face Award” is something that a lot of manga magazines put up to discover new art and storytelling talent. Young manga-ka to be send in a chapter or so they’ve written and drawn on their own and get published, catching attentions of publishers. Many manga artists got their start this way, including Masashi Kishimoto, creator of Naruto.

tohri7

Oh. Um. Yes.
Also, we’ve got Takakishi Pou doing the announcement cut, so make sure to follow up with him.

Editor

Got it. Thanks, sir!

tohri7

…where was I, again?

Umm… anyway!

This is not only revenge! This is… a ceremony which I must undergo to usher in my new self!

Tremble, philistines!
Be awed by the artistry of my beautiful creation!

049

tohri7

I’ll expect an apology in the next world, Isa Soumaaaaa!!!

We fade to white.

hiyoko

It’s starting! It’s starting!
Come on, Anghel!

050

I just yelped.

anghel11

Light of Magic and Hope that twists throughout this world! Grant the Chosen Ones the power to defend this land!

Pretty Coore! Open My Hato!

051

ryouta5

A single flower blooming in the asphalt road!
Coore Grey!!

052

nanaki5

A single flower swaying in the exhaust fumes!
Coore Light Grey!!

I’m so weak to cute birds… in drawn-on outfits…

054

hiyoko

A single flower…
…shredded by the BB gun’s rage!
Coore Dark Grey!!

ryouta5

We want to become seniors here, and graduate!
We won’t let you destroy our school!

nanaki5

I just finished grading the proficiency tests, and it was a lot of work.
Couldn’t you at least wait until after I’ve returned them?

hiyoko

Umm… I don’t really want to think about how I did on my proficiency tests so I guess even if the school got destroyed it wouldn’t be all that–

anghel12

You must not let your heart waver, Edel Blau!

hiyoko

R-right!
I’m scared about my tests… but it would be worse to let our school be blown away!

Mister Nishikikouji!
Your plot ends here!

055

Pretty Coore Barrieeeeeerrr!!!

hiyoko

It’s holding! We can do it!

ryouta6

We can… save the school!

048

tohri7

Hmm…? Ah, I see.
You recover remarkably quickly, Higure Anghel.
Or perhaps you remain able to manifest delusions even when weakened.

But did you really think I didn’t have a backup plan?

black

tohri7

Prepare to trigger the fangirls!

story20

Sakuya

Something’s happening, Tosaka!

hiyoko

What is it?!

Sakuya

He’s adding power!
The second attack will come soon!

056

God help me.

fujoshi1

Tsundere racing dove uke moe~

fujoshi2

Seme pink pelican moe~

I’m going to guess that what they translated as “fangirls” is probably actually “fujoshi“. Putting it like this you might think moa is being rude, but no more than she is by talking about Otaku. Although they are often pejorative terms, the fact remains that these people are real and easy to stereotype, like western nerds.

tohri7

The first wave was just a ranging shot. I’ve got more than just moe-loving pigs, after all.

I have heard that the fantasies of fangirls far surpass those of any fanboy!
Watch, and be destroyed!

049

hiyoko

Hurry! We need to block it!

055

ryouta6

Aaagh…! It’s too much, Coore Dark Grey…!

nanaki6

We do seem to be getting squeezed…

anghel13

So my evil half… truly does have the power to destroy this world…?

hiyoko

We can’t give up!
We have to defend the school! We’re the only ones… who can…!

057

okosan3

Cooooo!
(Everything’s all sparkly! Oh no!)

mirukaku2

Merry Christmas…

Merry Christmas!
(We can’t give up yet!)

okosan3

Coo, coooooo!
(We cannot!)

058

This song is incredible, and making me feel a lot of feelings.

mirukaku2

Merry! Christmas!
(We have to help the Pretty Coores with our Miracle Pigeon Light!)

okosan3

Cooooooo!
(You can do it, Pretty Coores!)

059

Don’t give up!

060

You can do it!

061

You are Pretty Coore!

hiyoko

I can hear everyone… cheering us on…!

ryouta5

Pretty Coores are warriors of love! Their kindness makes us stronger!

nanaki5

It’s very reassuring, isn’t it?

049

tohri8

Hmph… you still resist?
Pitiful.

Allow me to end it for you.
Remove all limiters! Output to maximum!

fujoshi1

He’s tsundere and noble, so he must be the uke?
You dumb newbie! Everybirdie knows racing dove x tree sparrow is practically canon!

fujoshi2

But butlers are so hot!
Black-winged stilt x pink pelican is the best!

tohri8

…what is this?
Why is the energy converter becoming so unstable?!

055

anghel13

Your time of judgement has come, you who would have used the blood of the Crimson Angel of Judecca to sate your greed–Golden Winged Messenger!

Pure spirits of light, gather and strike the golden hue!
Shining Pretty Coore Burst!

white

Tohri

AAaaaaaaaaaaaaaargggghhhhh!!!

story20

hiyoko

We did it! We did it, Anghel!
We deflected the otaku laser!
Look, the Golden Weekly building is practically destroyed!

anghel10

Yes… that abominable evil has been checked.

nanaki2

Hmm… they probably won’t be back in business for a little while.

ryouta3

I wasn’t sure we could do it…
I’m so glad the school’s okay!

anghel10

This… was my sin.
I should have realized sooner that he meant to harvest my blood for evil… forgive me.

hiyoko

Don’t worry about it, Anghel!
All’s well that ends well!

ryouta3

It was Mister Nishikikouji’s fault, anyway.
It’s wrong for an adult to go around tricking high school students like that!

nanaki2

Try not to get tricked by any more bad grown-ups, okay?

anghel10

Yes… I shall carve this lesson into my crimson chest, Sage of Nightmares.

062

tohri9

…I did not account for this in my calculations.

My creation was perfect!
It was the materials that failed me.

Those fangirls’ fantasies were dreadful!
No one told me their energies would be so unharmonious!
It wouldn’t have broken down if it weren’t for those fangirls…!

-pant-… -pant-…

Hmph. Oh well.
No doubt he saw the power of my artistry. This was a declaration of war…

A phone rings.

tohri9

Golden Weekly chief editor Nishikikouji Tohri speaking.

hiyoko

Ah, Mister Nishikikouji!
This was very childish and irresponsible of you, understand?
I want you to think about what you’ve done!

tohri9

Shut up!
This isn’t over yet!

story20

hiyoko

Wow! Even his closing line sounded like something a movie villain would say after his evil organization was destroyed and he has no chance of winning!

ryouta3

When did you get him to give you his number?!

Anyway, it looks like he’ll probably retreat for now.
Hopefully we won’t see him again anytime soon!

hiyoko

I guess this means your manga is back to square one, Anghel…
But don’t worry! I know you can do it!

anghel10

Be not afraid, Edel Blau. The star that shines within my soul has not yet lost its luster!

hiyoko

You always try your best, so I’m sure you’ll debut someday!
And I’ll be there when you do!

Now then–

There’s a radio buzz.

Yuuya

Salut, mon amie. Good work!

hiyoko

Yuuya! How do things look over there? I hope no one’s killed?

Yuuya

Don’t worry. The building is badly damaged, but we’ve aready extracted everyone who was kidnapped from the Big Sight. We’ve got it from here.

hiyoko

Good work! Thanks, Yuuya!

sakuya3

Hmph. So even that mongrel can make himself useful once in a while.

hiyoko

He has all sorts of shady connections, so he’s really nice to have around in situations like this!

Looks like everything’s settled!

black

…actually, who was Mister Nishikikouji trying to get revenge on?

Maybe I’ll call him up and ask later.

???

Achoo.

063

shuu1

Oh, dear. Am I letting myself catch cold?
Perhaps I should have brought an extra sweater.

064
