Katori's waifu is so faithful. :3

Oh, and kudos to Anon M for going to the trouble of merging these double page spreads for me.

Baccano! 1933 - THE SLASH - Bloody to Fair: Color Pages and Connecting Chapter

I must apologize in advance for the rather dismal quality of Claire and Maria's color pages. I've pretty much ripped them as is from my artbook scans and blown them up, so that's why they look so dodgy.

The color page here with Miria and Isaac is one of my favorite parts of this arc (out of many favorite parts, granted), and it's not even related to the story proper. Hahaha. Enjoy.

Baccano! 1933 - THE SLASH - Cloudy to Rainy: Connecting Chapter

I'll refrain from giving my own thoughts on the book until I'm done with The Slash in its entirety, but I just wanted to say that I wouldn't normally use the word "slash" so much, but seeing as how it's the theme running through this arc, I included the word more than usual to, uhh, bolster that. Would that the arc had been named "The Cut" instead.

Enjoy, and remember! The story's not over; The Slash is composed of two books!

Next volume's raws've got pretty questionable quality as well, so yeah. They'll probably take a while too. But that's that, and this is this. Enjoy.

Baccano! 1933 - THE SLASH - Cloudy to Rainy: Chapter 2

The kid in Jacuzzi's gang who goes "Hyaha!" all the time is named Chiny (Chiney? Chini? Whatever it is, it's probably a nickname), and according to the wiki she's a girl. She expresses every one of her emotions with "Hyaha," from distress to good humor to anger. You can see her in episode 15 of the anime, about eight minutes in, where she pops up out of the blue and says "Hyaha." Everything else about her is apparently mentioned in one of the gaiden novels that shipped with the DVDs, which I haven't had the chance to read. So yeah, that's that.

Yes, Donny does talk like a caveman. Fang doesn't talk like a stereotypical Chinese person, but he does have an accent.

The connecting chapter is only about twenty pages long, so that should be out soon enough too, and then we'll be on to book 7. Enjoy.

I included a note in the chapter itself, but I thought I'd say it here too. Page 178 was missing in the raws I had, but it wasn't a very important page (it was there for pacing purposes) so I just went ahead and released anyway. Not like I can keep stalling just for the sake of a transition page. Enjoy.

Sorry this took so long, but my schedule is clear and I have no more deadlines to meet for the foreseeable future (read: next four days or so) so the next one shouldn't take quite as long in coming. Enjoy.

And so the Dolce arc is winding down... But there's still a little surprise in store before it ends. Keep an eye out for the next couple of chapters, coming... someday soon, I guess. Enjoy.

Baccano! 1933 - THE SLASH - Cloudy to Rainy: Chapter 1

I don't think the repeal of the American Prohibition worked quite how it's written here, but eh. I'm not entirely comfortable with rewriting exposition from the author like that.

I did take some liberties in translating Isaac and Miria's dialog, though; somehow I don't think expressions like gyafun and watarinifune would work very well in English.

Oh, and in case you didn't notice, I've scanned the Baccano artbook, which you can find here. Just a heads up.

Enjoy.

Important Announcement!

In case you haven't guessed already, April Fools.

Certain fans have told me that they prefer absolute accuracy even at the expense of a little readability; after careful deliberation, I have come to agree with them, and subsequently have decided to present my translations in a manner that is entirely legible in English while still providing maximum accuracy.

I've included a preview to let you know how things are going to be from now on! Expect the full chapter in a day or two!
