Code Geass Lelouch of the Rebellion Sound Episode Newtype Special Translation

The last two highly anticipated first season episodes of Code Geass still seems sometime away. Meanwhile drama CDs are being released with little fillers that take place in between scenes of certain episodes.

The July issue of the Japanese Anime magazine “Newtype” comes with its own Code Geass drama CD special too. Here is my rough translation of the four tracks. Since I posted this on the Animesuki forums, I thought I might as well post it on my little news blog too!

Track 1 – “Code Geass Lelouch of the Rebellion Sound Episode Newtype Special- The Third Reason”

A gunshot is heard and people scream.

Robber
Don’t move!!

Boss
Everyone get down, hands above your heads.

Robber
We’ll kill you on the spot if you don’t do as we say!

Lelouch
“This was the national bank, a cheap looking place for low class citizens. Usually we just turn off the TV when we see it on but this time, we couldn’t. It was because…”

Kallen is grabbed by the robber.

Kallen
Aaahh!

Suzaku
Kallen!

Robber
Try anything weird and I’ll shoot this girl right through the head!

Lelouch
“This was real and we were there.”

Boss
We’re just here to take the money. It’ll be over in no time if you cooperate.

Lelouch
“There were two robbers. The one with the commanding voice was the boss holding a rifle and the stupid looking was holding Kallen hostage with a pistol. With my Geass that gave me the power to command any human being, I could deal with them easily but I would have to use it without Suzaku and Kallen noticing.”

Boss
I’m going inside… Watch the hostages.

Robber
Got it, Boss.

Lelouch
“Maybe I could contact the Black Knights. I’m sure there was an armed unit in the D7 Area but, it will be a reckless move.”

Suzaku
Stop it! Let that girl go!

Kallen
Suzaku…?

Lelouch
“That idiot-!”

Suzaku
I’ll be your hostage! That girl’s not well.

Lelouch
“No… I think she’s actually quite a tough one.”

Suzaku
Don’t you have any shame taking a girl hostage?

Robber
Hmm…? You’re an Eleven! Help us if you’re Japanese! All the money here was taken away from us by the Britannians!

Suzaku
That doesn’t mean you have to resort to robbing!

Robber
Shut up! We have the Black Knights backing us up, you know!

Suzaku
What?

Lelouch
“Oh really? The Black Knights huh…”

Kallen gets all defensive.

Kallen
Stop lying. The Black Knights are different from people like you!

Robber
What?!

Kallen
The Black Knights… Zero… would never take a girl hostage!

Robber
Shut up, you Britannia girl!

He hits Kallen.

Suzaku
Kallen!!

Lelouch
“My my, I guess I have no choice.”

Lelouch gets up.

Suzaku
Lelouch…?

Robber
Hey you… The student over there! Don’t stand up!

Lelouch walks towards the robber.

Lelouch
Silence! I’m the one giving orders around here.

Robber
Stay back! I’ll shoot the girl if you get any closer!

Lelouch continues to walk.

Lelouch
Do you want you please. That girl isn’t my lover or anything.

Kallen is surprised and can’t believe what he said.

Kallen
What…? Lelouch…

Robber
Idiot. Do you know I can shoot you?

Lelouch stops.

Lelouch
There are three reasons why you two are going to fail.

Robber
Oh?

Lelouch
Number 1, you think it’s worthwhile taking that girl as hostage.

Kallen

Lelouch
Number 2, you believe you’re the only ones who possess weapons.

Robber
Ha! Students wouldn’t have weapons on them!

Lelouch
That’s right… But what would you do if we came here for the same reason as you did?

Robber
What?!

Lelouch
Why don’t you try shooting me…? If you want to have a taste of how powerful the C4 plastic explosive in my pocket is, that is.

Robber
You’re bluffing.

Lelouch
Then check my pockets.

Starts walking towards the robber again.

Robber
Sta- Stay back! I’ll shoot her!

Lelouch
I thought I would let you hear the bomb’s timer.

Robber
What!

Lelouch
You should be able to hear it now.

Lelouch activates the Geass.

The sound of the timer counting down… You can hear it, the sound that carves time.

The ticking can be heard.

Robber
It can’t be… I can… I can really hear the bomb!

Kallen
What…? But I can’t hear anything…

Robber
Stop! Stay away from me!!

Lelouch
Come. There’s 10 seconds before it reaches zero.

Robber
Stop! Stop it! I don’t want to die!!

Lelouch
3… 2… 1…

Suzaku slips in and knocks the robber out much to Kallen’s surprise.

Suzaku
Are you alright, Kallen?

Kallen
Ye- Yeah… Suzaku… When did you sneak in behind him?

Suzaku
Lelouch drew his attention away so it was simple. Can you stand?

Kallen
Than-

A gunshot is heard.

Boss
I ordered you not to move.

Lelouch
Oh? You’re pretty fast. You’re returned earlier than I had calculated.

Boss
Shut up! Don’t you see I’m holding a rifle?

Suzaku
Surrender. If you do it now, your punishment can still be lightened.

Kallen
Suzaku, it won’t get through to him.

Suzaku
Don’t worry. Leave it to me.

Suzaku starts walking towards the boss.

Now, throw away your gun!

Boss
Stop right there!

Suzaku
It’s no use to do that.

Boss
Looks like you won’t understand if there aren’t any deaths. Take this!

The boss shoots but Suzaku dodges and rushes in at high speed.

Kallen
He dodged the bullet!

Suzaku knocks down the boss.

Suzaku
I am Suzaku Kururugi, a Warrant Officer of the Britannia. I hereby restrain you for robbery and attempted murder.

Boss
This… This can’t be happening…

Suzaku
I’m not afraid of guns when there are no hostages.

Lelouch
Hmph. The third reason is Suzaku Kururugi is right here.

Sirens are heard.

Kallen
Ummm… Thanks for saving me.

Suzaku
You did well. I can’t believe you spoke back to the robbers…

Lelouch
Even though you’re just a weak young lady.

Kallen
Huh? Oh, I was just… Er, that is…

Suzaku
Kallen, are you alright?

Lelouch
We should be asking if you’re alright. It was too reckless of you going up against people with guns.

Suzaku
You too, Lelouch… Bluffing like that was too dangerous. If I hadn’t sneaked in, what were you going to do?

Kallen
Huh? You two didn’t have it all planned?

Lelouch
Not at all.

Suzaku
Lelouch made his own moves.

Kallen
And you still managed to overcome them…

Lelouch
You were there after all, Suzaku.

Suzaku replies sarcastically.

Suzaku
Thanks for thinking I’m such a reliable person. But you were wrong about the third reason.

Lelouch
I was?

Suzaku
Yes. It wasn’t because I was there. It was because were both there right? Lelouch.

End of Track 1

The other tracks were a little too much so I’ll just post some highlights.

Track 2 – Code Geass YamaYama of the Rebellion Deluxe Special

The two Seiyuus behind Lelouch and Rivalz, Jun Fukuyama and Noriaki Sugiyama are taking part in this special in a recording room. Just as they have making fun of there own characters Lelouch breaks into the recording room. He is not happy about them ruining his image. The two Seiyuus don’t know who he is until they learn he used his left eye… “Uso~! ( ゜ロ゜) ウソォ”. Lelouch uses his Geass, ordering them to go reflect on their “sin” and takes over the show to redeem his image.

Lelouch calls in Rivalz who looks over at the two “sinners” and admires the Sugiyama who plays his role. On the other hand, he doesn’t think too much of Fukuyama.

Lelouch: “Rivalz, hurry up and sit down over here.”

Rivalz: “Ah right.”

Sits down and gets hit by Lelouch.

Rivalz: “Hey! What did you do that for?”

Lelouch: “I don’t know why but… I suddenly got really annoyed.”

Rivalz: “What is wrong with you?”

Lelouch: “Hurry up and put us on air.”

Rivalz: “Why me?”

Lelouch: “I don’t know how to operate a radio show.”

The show begins.

End of Track 2

Track 3 – Code Geass YamaYama of the Rebellion Deluxe Special

And so, the “YamaYama” show begins.

Lelouch: “Wait! What is this “YamaYama”? I don’t understand the reason behind it.”

Rivalz: “Well you see, I think they’re putting the “Yama” in Fukuyama and Sugiyama’s names together to come up with “YamaYama”.

Lelouch: “Then we must change the title. We don’t have the characters “Yama” in either of our names.”

Rivalz: “Then what shall we do with it?”

Lelouch: “Hmmm, yes. We both have a “ru” in our names, the “ru” in Lelouch and the “ru” in your name “Karudemondo” so we’ll call it the “Rebellion of Lulu”.

Rivalz: “Ugh… You don’t have any taste in naming do you?”

The two goes onto introducing themselves and then starts reading out a fan letter that begins with “To the one named Yama”. Lelouch interrupts because he finds the addressing strange. Rivalz explains it’s just a pen name and continues. The letter asks about how to keep a room clean. Rivalz passes the question over to Lelouch since his room is so clean.

Lelouch: “Ah yes, if I have any litter I clean it out immediately. After using anything, I put them back in place otherwise I don’t feel right.”

Rivalz: “So your room is always super clean and tidy?”

Lelouch: “No, my room hasn’t been like that lately really.”

Rivalz: “Huh? Why?”

Lelouch: “There’s a messy someone in my room.”

Rivalz: “Who? Nunnally?”

Lelouch: “No, not Nunnally. This someone messes around with my textbooks, uses stuff without my permission then leaves them lying around. Thanks to this someone I just can’t clean up my room anymore. And, this someone gives me the look as if I should be the one doing the tidying up afterwards! Just thinking about it annoys me…!”

Rivalz talks about a ghost in Area 11 but Lelouch says the someone isn’t as fun as that. The “someone” is just destitute. Just then the phone rings.

Rivalz: “Hey, a call.”

Lelouch picks up his phone.

Lelouch: “It’s me.”

Rivalz: “Hey, we’re in the middle of a programme here you know…”

Lelouch: “C2! You were listening?!”

Rivalz: “Looks like we’ve just had an accident on our live show!”

Lelouch: “Silence! What’s wrong with telling them the truth!”

He hangs up. Rivalz try to ask who it was but Lelouch ignores it and decides to move on.

End of Track 3

Track 4 – Ashford Academy, The Boys Changing Room

Lelouch and Rivalz goes into a corner of the school where students can shout out their secrets and anything that annoys them into a locker. Lelouch thinks it would be a good idea to hide a listening device to gather information. Rivalz stops him.

After releasing all his woes into the locker which including how he doesn’t want to join an event with primary school kids again or be called the “leader of justice”, Lelouch wants to take the locker home. But again Rivalz stops him because it belongs to everyone. Just then, Lelouch’s phone rings again.

Lelouch: “You’re annoying me.”

Rivalz: “Oooo, sounds like a girl’s voice!”

Lelouch: “The shouts have nothing to do with me!”

Rivalz: “Getting pretty emotional aren’t we?”

Lelouch: “Shut up! Go eat your pizza or something!”

He hangs up. Rivalz teases him about picking up the phone all the time during work. Lelouch tells him the call demands that they stop their stupid shouting activity. Rivalz isn’t happy to hear that and is annoyed at the girl who called. He starts pretending to be having a conversation with the “mystery” girl.

Rivalz: “So, why do you have such a rebellious personality? Oh, because you’re a friend of Lelouch’s huh! Ah, I seeeeee now!”

Phone rings but it’s an e-mail for Rivalz.

Rivalz: “Hey, a message for me! Lets see… I will make Rivalz pay for insulting me… What the-!!”

End of Track Four

Track 5 – Ashford Academy

The show ends and the two reminds fans that you can listen to the Code Geass YamaYama DX show every Saturday from 2:30AM on Bunka Radio or Kansai Radio, JOQR.

Don’t get the last little thing that Lelouch is all upset about.

Was pretty entertaining! Maybe I should start buying Newtype magazines again from Forbidden Planet or I could just order them…
