Saiyuki: His God, My God omake

The guys head for level ground after leaving Yoh's temple, but Gojyo has doubts that the path Sanzo chose is the right one. Was Sanzo's intuition right, or will Gojyo and the others reach level ground first?

[Hoshi]: Extra
(Footsteps. A crow caws)
[Goku]: Sanzo…
(Goku’s stomach gurgles)
[Goku]: I’m hungry…
[Sanzo]: Shut up. Hurry up and walk
[Goku]: We’ve been walking all day! I’m tired
[Sanzo]: We still haven’t reached level ground. If you don’t pick up the pace the sun’ll set
[Hakkai]: Uh, Sanzo…
[Sanzo]: What
[Hakkai]: This path really is the right one, yes?
[Sanzo]: Are you questioning my choice?
[Gojyo]: About that…
[Sanzo]: What?!
[Gojyo]: Back at that fork in the road, you didn’t hesitate when you chose the right-hand path, yeah? And that’s why we’re walking along this path. There’s no sigh of getting out to level ground at all!
[Sanzo]: Not a problem
[Gojyo]: How do you know that? What basis did you chose this path on?
[Sanzo]: … Intuition
[Gojyo]: … Intuition?! You based it on your intuition?! So what’s gonna happen if you’re wong?! Huh?!
[Sanzo]: Quite complaining! Just shut up and follow me!
[Goku]: … Huh?
[Gojyo]: What’s up, Goku?
[Goku]: But, don’t we gotta go down the mountain to reach level ground?
[Hakkai]: And this path slopes up…
[Gojyo]: Hey, look at that Sanzo. I knew this path was wrong!
[Sanzo]: Shut up! I don’t make mistakes
[Gojyo]: Ah, man. I can’t trust you. I’m not going any further on this path!
[Sanzo]: ‘kk. Do what you want
[Hakkai]: Ah, uh, Sanzo!
(Sanzo stomps off)
[Goku]: He left
[Hakkai]: Sanzo’s very stubborn, isn’t he
[Gojyo]: He’ll come back when he can’t go any further. Leave him
[Hakkai]: … Then what should we do? Shall we return to that fork in the road?
[Gojyo]: What a pain…
[Hakkai]: Or we could return to the temple and ask Yoh-san the correct path
[Gojyo]: Even more of a pain…
[Hakkai]: Then what should we do?
[Gojyo]: Hmmm… Oh, that’s right
[Hakkai]: What?
[Gojyo]: Hey, Goku. C’mere
[Goku]: What?
[Gojyo]: Here, you see that rocky mountain over there, yeah?
[Goku]: Yeah. That one going zoom! straight up next to that valley?
[Gojyo]: You go over there and check out the topography around here
[Hakkai]: Ah, so he can check to see if there’s a short cut!
[Gojyo]: Yep
[Goku]: No way! That’s a pain in the ass. You always tell me to do stuff like that
[Gojyo]: Oh come on, don’t say stuff like that. Please, Goku
[Goku]: No way! There’s no way I’m going
[Gojyo]: I’ll buy you meat buns once we reach the town. A huge shop’s worth
[Goku]: I’ll go!
(ZOOM! Goku takes off with the sound of a jet plane)
[Hakkai]: He’s very energetic
[Gojyo]: Good thing he’s a kid
(Goku zooms back)
[Goku]: I checked it out!
[Gojyo]: So, how was it?
[Goku]: There is a short cut
[Hakkai]: Really?
[Gojyo]: All right! If we reach level ground first, that’ll show that self-righteous, stinking monk. Goku! Show us the way
(Rushing water)
[Gojyo]: Wait, this is a river!
[Goku]: Yeah
[Gojyo]: What’re you saying we do?
[Goku]: There’s a small path that leads right to level ground, once we cross this
[Gojyo]: Hey. How the hell do you propose we cross this raging river? It might be fine for a strong idiot like you, but how the hell do you expect us to do it?
[Goku]: It’ll be fine. I can take Hakkai across no problem
[Gojyo]: And what about me?
[Goku]: It shouldn’t be a problem for you, Gojyo. You’re a kappa, after all
[Hakkai]: Oh, I see
[Gojyo]: Are you stupid?
[Goku]: No problem, no problem! See?
(He kicks Gojyo)
[Gojyo]: Whoa, don’t kick me! Whoa, whoa, whoa!
(Gojyo falls in and starts drowning)
[Goku]: Huh? Why’s he getting washed away?
[Hakkai]: Gojyo is only half kappa. He might not be particularly good at swimming
[Goku]: Oh, really?
[Hakkai]: This is what you’d call an “Even a kappa can drown” situation
[Gojyo]: (coughing) Hoo. I thought I was gonna die
[Goku]: You’re so undependable, Gojyo
[Gojyo]: Shut up! I’m not trusting anything you say anymore
[Goku]: You’re so mean! It was your idea Gojyo
[Hakkai]: So, what shall we do?
[Gojyo]: Ah, we’ve got no choice. I guess we should head back to the temple and ask about that right path, since it’s come to this…
[Hakkai]: I guess we should… But doing that will take an awful lot of time
[Gojyo]: We don’t have any other choice
[Hakkai]: It was just a suggestion. But if the road Sanzo took turns out to be the right one… he’ll laugh at us
[Gojyo]: Urg
[Hakkai]: Are you all right with that, Gojyo?
[Gojyo]: ……. Goku
[Goku]: What?
[Gojyo]: Were there any other routes?
[Goku]: Huh? Well, there was one other…
[Gojyo]: All right! Take us to it. I will not be laughed at by Sanzo of all people!
(Birds cry. Something cracks and rocks tumble down)
[Gojyo]: Whoa!
[Hakkai]: Gojyo! Are you all right?
[Gojyo]: Y-yeah
[Goku]: Gojyo, what’re you doing hanging around up there? We’re gonna leave you behind!
[Gojyo]: Shut up! Like anyone could get down an incline this steep… that fast!
[Goku]: But Hakkai’s way faster than you
[Hakkai]: That’s because I choose good footholds when I descend
[Goku]: See? Gojyo, do you have bad coordination?
[Gojyo]: Agh, I’m not a monkey like you!
[Hakkai]: What should we do, Gojyo? Shall we turn around?
[Gojyo]: Not when we’ve come this far!
[Goku]: Oh! Gojyo’s picked up his pace!
[Gojyo]: No matter what, I will not be laughed at by Sanzo…
[Hakkai]: Ah, wait! Gojyo! You shouldn’t push yourself! If you slip at that pace…
[Gojyo]: I’m fine. If you guys could do it, so can … whoa!
(He takes a tumble)
[Hakkai]: Oh, Gojyo fell!
[Goku]: (sigh) He does have bad coordination
[Hakkai]: Goku, this isn’t the time to be making off-handed comments
[Goku]: How come?
[Hakkai]: Look. Gojyo’s body is heading toward you, Goku…
[Goku]: What?!
[Gojyo]: I’m faaaaaaaalliiiiing…!
[Goku]: Woaaaah!
[Hakkai]: Ah, look at that. Those two get along so well
(Goku and Gojyo continue falling)
[Goku]: Why me too?!
[Gojyo]: Quit jabbering! We’ll be the first to level ground!
[Goku]: I don’t wanna!!!
(Boom. Quick pause)
[Hakkai]: We’ve finally made it to level ground
[Goku]: I thought I was gonna die
[Hakkai]: Normally, you would have
[Gojyo]: (chuckles) Ah, but, we got here faster than I thought. Now we can laugh our asses off at that self-righteous monk (laughs)
[Sanzo]: What’s so funny?
[Gojyo]: ‘What’s so fun-‘ Huh?
[Goku, Hakkai]: Sanzo
[Sanzo]: You guys are late
[Goku]: Ah, Sanzo!
[Gojyo]: You – How?!
[Sanzo]: I ran into a descending path to level ground soon after climbing that hill. That was a good short cut. I waited quite a while for you
[Gojyo]: How could this…?
[Sanzo]: Sheesh. If you’d just listened to me. Hn.
[Hakkai]: Gojyo… was laughed at. Through the nose, even
[Gojyo]: … ‘kk …
[Sanzo]: Come on. Let’s go
(He starts walking)
[Goku]: Idiot
[Gojyo]: What’d you say? If you hadn’t found some strange short cuts…!
[Goku] You’re the one who told me to find them, Gojyo! Don’t blame me!
[Gojyo]: I didn’t say to find weird ones! Monkey, can’t do anything right
[Goku]: What’s with that?
(fade out)

Yep, Gojyo does it like me :D
Jan. 10th, 2009 07:42 am (UTC)
I hope you don't meet up with as much trouble as he does though (O.o)
Jan. 10th, 2009 12:47 am (UTC)
Bwahahha! I'm surprised they didn't just leave Gojyo behind. Poor kappa can't swim. >_< I love the metaphors behind this one. Or maybe I'm giving them too much credit...
Jan. 10th, 2009 07:48 am (UTC)
Picking it apart is half the fun!
Jan. 10th, 2009 03:30 am (UTC)
Many thanks again for your sharing !

May I make a request here ? (I don't know how to contact you directly) Could you pleawse check Minekura-sensei's Nitro blog and confirm she is making some changes to the Saiyuki sreies ?
Jan. 10th, 2009 07:53 am (UTC)
There won't be any changes to the series itself. Her office is getting a new head editor, Maruyama-san.
Jan. 10th, 2009 08:06 am (UTC)
Oh, OK, good news, Thanks Very Much !

Jan. 12th, 2009 08:08 am (UTC)
You're welcome
Jan. 10th, 2009 03:56 am (UTC)

Poor Gojyo, and his utter fail at swimming :D

And I can't believe Sanzo actually waited for them -- probably just to gloat and rub it in... Hee -- no wonder Sanzo's the one who's in charge :D

Thanks for translating and sharing!
Jan. 10th, 2009 07:55 am (UTC)
Maybe the guys wouldn't get so lost if they followed Sanzo's intuition instead of the map XD

[Hakkai]: That’s because I choose good footholds when I descend

^ For some reason, this made me laugh until I snorted. :)

Poor Gojyo - he always seems to get the worst of it in these! LOL

Thanks for sharing!
Jan. 10th, 2009 07:57 am (UTC)
Somehow, Hakkai manages to be polite, please with himself, and poking fun at Gojyo all at once. I <3 him (^_^)
Jan. 10th, 2009 01:35 pm (UTC)
Hn. Sanzou is always right, so there. 'Ch...


These two get at each other's throats, no doubt about it! And poor Goku and Hakkai get caught in the middle.

well... actually it's only poor Goku, with Hakkai being the sly sneaky crafty man that he is. :3

well... actually in this case it's poor Gojyo all the way. XD XD XD
Jan. 12th, 2009 08:09 am (UTC)
And we have wet kappa again! Poor Gojyo, he gets such tough love from Minekura-sensei (^_^)
Jan. 10th, 2009 02:27 pm (UTC)
Eheh I love these extras that are somehow connected with the main story. Thank you for this translation as always.
Jan. 12th, 2009 08:10 am (UTC)
This is what the original Journey to the West needed more of!
Jan. 10th, 2009 03:51 pm (UTC)
These things are complete crack, and I can't get enough of them. Thanks so much!
Jan. 12th, 2009 08:11 am (UTC)
Neither can I! I'll be so sad when I don't have any more of these omake tracks to translate (;_;)

I swear this exact scenario happened to my sister and I. I trusted my gut and took us through the snow that was up to our necks and she got stuck BUT EVEN SO I still found us a way out. XD
