Translation - Chapter 147
Kaiba: This… this person on the mural is…?! / Game 147 The Lost
Kaiba: How is that possible?! / The so
called ancient Egypt artifacts, why would Yugi be in the picture? / Isis: I
don’t know this person called Yugi… / But…
Isis: I always thing that
this three thousand years old pharaoh on the engraved stamp… / From then to now,
always look as if he is alive…
Game 147 The Lost Card!
Isis: My mother country Egypt was a glorious kingdom that
lasted for more than three thousands years…
Isis: In this tablet is a
pharaoh from the 18th dynasty!
Seto: Pharaoh… / Isis: Yes…
In this ellipse, originally was the name of the pharaoh…
someone carved away the pharaoh’s name, / and no only on this tablet but also in
the palace and in the tomb. That is why there are no records of the pharaoh, /
in other words, this pharaoh has been completely erased from the history of
Isis: The anonymous pharaoh from three thousands years ago…
Seto: What pharaoh? / Enough of your
foolish talks! / The person on the tablet is Yugi! / How can he be a pharaoh
from three thousands years ago?
Seto: You can’t even prove that this
tablet is three thousands years old! / Any DNA from the people who carved out
these tablets would be long gone! You cannot use carbon dating on these rocks!
Isis: Mr. Kaiba… / There is no need for you to be this emotional, if you
calm down and have a look at the tablet, you may realize that this tablet also
Seto: Hm… / Argu…
Isis: The young
high priest who faced the pharaoh / was summoning what looks like a dragon. He
looks a bit like…
Seto: SHUT UP!
Seto: Shut up!!
Shut up!! Shut up!! / This is not scientific!!
Seto: Duel monster cards
existing three thousands years ago is totally ridiculous!
Europe, Antoine Court de Gebelin created the popular tarot cards from Ancient
Egyptian hieroglyphics. / Pegasus J. Crawford only followed his fate and created
the Duel Monster cards.
Isis: That is why,
perhaps fate would also lead the pharaoh and the high priest on the tablet… / to
the present, three thousands years later…
Seto: Isis… / As
the minister of Egyptian archaeology, if you invited me here just to talk about
magic, and fantasies, then you are wasting your time! / I am busy and I can be
using this time to work on my holographic machines!
Isis: I understand…
/ Seto: Then cut to your point!
Isis: Mister… / Do you know that Pegasus
left a legendary Duel Monster card?
Seto: What?! / A legendary Duel
Isis: Please look at this!
Isis: Above the pharaoh and the high priest, pictures of three stone
tablets were carved.
Isis: The pictures of the three “God” monsters were
drawn around a picture of the millennium puzzle.
Seto: Three “God”
Isis: Pegasus J. Crawford created three cards based on the
three monsters on this tablet.
Isis: The monsters those
pictures of stone tablets are…
Isis: The God Obelisk!
Isis: The Dragon God of Osiris!
Isis: The Sun God Ra!
Isis: These three God monsters each symbolize two extremes in the
universe. / Obelisk symbolizes light and darkness. / Osiris symbolizes good and
evil. / Ra symbolizes the sky and earth.
Isis: Anyone who can come into
possession of these three cards,
Isis: Can become unbeatable, / he can
defeat all duellists, / he can even acquire the name “King of Games”.
Seto: King of Games…
Seto: Who has the three cards now?
Isis: To prevent that I need to borrow your power… / Seto: ?!
Isis: Pegasus once said that creating the three God cards was his life’s
biggest mistake… / Because these three cards contain the power God, they contain
Seto: Immense power!!
Isis: The one who obtain
the three cards can use them to do much good, but he can also use them for evil…
/ If these cards are controlled by an evil heart, they can even take away lives…
in a game, they can become the ultimate weapons!
weapons!! / Can it be… these duel monster cards, have the power to do direct
damage to the opponent, and possesses special power as said in the legends?
Isis: Pegasus originally wanted to destroyed these cards
himself, unfortunately he failed, / that is why he allowed these three cards to
sleep in their homeland, deep under ground in the Valley of the Kings…
Isis: Pegasus entrusted the cards to the ministry of Egyptian
Archaeology, they were placed separately in three different places in the Valley
of the Kings. / However…
Isis: Someone stole them…
Seto: Even Pegasus was scared of their power, there shouldn’t be that
many people who know of their existences, / so who stole them?
Ghouls… / Mr. Kaiba, I trust you have heard of them…
Ghouls… / an organization that exist all over the world, an active organization
that focus on stealing Duel Monster Cards! / They stole them?
Stealing cards and then selling them in the underground market, thus making
large profits… / I heard they even secretly create fake cards and sell them for
Seto: Ghouls in Muslim folklore are demons that rob graves and
feed on the flesh of the dead… / They are seriously a real-life version of those
Seto: They stole the three God cards… / I cannot forgive them…
Isis: Mr. Kaiba… I need your power!
Isis: For the sovereignty of
the Egyptian government and the last wishes of Pegasus J. Crawford, I wish to
regain the stolen cards!
Isis: We opened
the Ancient Egyptian exhibition in this city because we wish the world to know
of the true origin of Duel Monster Cards. / We believe that this tablet hold the
power to summon duellists together!
Seto: So you are implying that you
wish me to change this city into a duelling stage?
Seto: I see, the
Ghouls would find out, they would want the rare cards the duellists have… / For
example my “Blue Eyes White Dragon”…
Isis: That is why…
will give you this card…
Seto: That… That is…
Seto: The God of Obelisk!
Seto: This is one of the three God
cards!! / Why is the God of Obelisk here?
Isis: Only two of the three
cards were stolen, / to acquire the two stolen cards, I am willing to lend you
“The God of Obelisk”…
Seto: Using this card as bait…
/ Isis, you trust me?
Seto: What if, after I acquire the other two
cards, I refuse to give them back, then what will you do?
Isis: I trust you with all my heart…
Pak! / Pak!
Seto: The three God cards….
The Domino Hospital
Yugi: Today I can leave this
Yugi: Joey and the gang went to school in the morning but they
are going to play with me in the afternoon! / Nurse: That kid has been talking
to himself for a long time.
Yami: I have to thank you… / Yugi: ! / Ah?
Yami: In that fire you put your life in danger trying to put the puzzle
Yugi: … / The one who saved us was Joey…
Yami: You are right! We have the best friends in the world… / Yugi: Yes.
Yugi: The other me… / Yami: !
Yugi: Bakura’s other self said to
me, / that who ever solve the millennium puzzle has the duty to awaken the lost
memories of the pharaoh…
Yami: My name… or
even where I am from… / I don’t know…
Yami: All I know is
this, I know that I exist because you put the millennium puzzle together…
Yami: In the Valley of the Kings, / Is a sarcophagus that holds the
puzzle and the other six millennium items… / There… My…
Yugi: Stop it!!
/ Let’s stop talking about this!
Yugi: Let’s go! / It’s time to leave
the hospital! / Let’s go find Joey and the gang!
Yami: I want to be with you forever, / even if I cannot recall my
memories it does not matter…
Yugi: I also… / want to
Yugi: I will… give you all my memories…
Yami: Look! Our friends! / Yugi: !
Yo everyone! You haven’t seen any translation by me for a while. I said I would
translate the second part of Isis and Seto conversation soon in the last chapter
but school was really busy and I had too many tests and projects to translate,
but I promise I will pick up my pace in the summer.
This chapter is so
wordy! I spend a long time to translate this chapter because I find some wording
sort of weird. Another reason is that there are a few places that require some
researches (Imagine trying to translate Antoine Court de Gebelin without the
Here is the full origin and definition of a ghoul,
I think it is pretty interesting so I am going to put that here:
folklore, the ghoul is a demon of the desert that is able to assume the shape of
an animal. It is an evil spirit that robs graves and feeds on the flesh of the
dead or on young children. They inhabit lonely places, especially graveyards.
They also lure travelers into the desert, sometimes beguiling those travelers by
prostituting themselves, and then devouring them. The Arabic ghoul of the
wasteland seems to be a personification of the terror of the desert.
any case I hope you enjoy the chapter.
