xxxHOLiC 175 translation


HOLiC 175
FX: Ding-dong

Watanuki: Good evening, this is Watanuki.

Woman: It's the same no matter how many times you come.

Watanuki: Um,
Would you let me talk for a little bit?

Woman: .....

Watanuki: I made rice balls today too.
Since I brought them over here...
Woman: Hmph.

FX: Rustle

Watanuki: You going home?

Doumeki: Yeah.
Doumeki: How long you going to continue?

Watanuki: Until that person eats what I made,
Or until she eats what she's made herself.

Doumeki: What will you do if that doesn't happen no matter how long passes?

Watanuki: I won't do anything.

I'll just continue until that happens.
Watanuki: Since I can't do things like Yuuko-san,
I'll do what I can.

Doumeki: ...Has Yuuko-san still not appeared?

Watanuki: ...Yeah.
For the time being, in exchange for house-sitting, I'm staying over at the store, but

It's already nearly two weeks since I've seen Yuuko-san.
Or Mokona, or Maru, or Moro.
Watanuki: Well, it's fine as long as the sake doesn't decrease.

Speaking of which,
What's with that bag?

If you have somewhere to go...

Doumeki: I have somewhere to go, but--

Watanuki: Then, you don't have to keep me company.

Doumeki: Anyhow, our destination is together. [T/N: "Destination" may be a pun on "future."]

Watanuki: Huh?
Watanuki: Geez,
Why are you staying over at the store!

Doumeki: The sake's not decreasing, is it?

Watanuki: Who told you

FX: Stamp

To please decrease the sake!!!
Doumeki: So,
What's for dinner?

Watanuki: Since I thought I'd be alone,
I haven't prepared anything!

Doumeki: I'm hungry.
Make food.

FX: Ta-da

Watanuki: You, is that your arrogance, initial equipment!? 
Improper deletion!?

FX: Poke

FX: Snorting

Watanuki: Augh--! Just how is it that he grew up like this! Next time I'm talking to Haruka-san, absolutely!!

FX: Slam-slide

Doumeki: Bring liquor, too.

FX: Thump thump

Doumeki: Japanese liquor.
Watanuki: If Yuuko-san gets mad at you, slide and throw yourself at her feet! 

FX: Slam

FX: Rummage

Doumeki: ...Does this mean

That the time to use this is near?
FX: Diiing-dooong, diiing-dooong

Himawari: She still won't see you?
The cooking lesson person.

Watanuki: Yeah, well.

Himawari: ...But you're going, huh.
Today too.

Bringing rice-balls.

Watanuki: Yeah.
Tanpopo: Cheep

FX: Hop

Himawari: Here.

Watanuki: This...

Himawari: I made it.
I don't have any confidence for cooking yet, so it's just cookies, but if you like, eat them.

Watanuki: You did, Himawari-chan?

Himawari: Yeah.

Watanuki: Thank you!
Himawari: Don't worry.
I'm sure your feelings will reach, Watanuki-kun.

Watanuki: ...Yeah.

Watanuki: Chef-Stalker for great justice!

He looks older lately. Also, I love how all the characters have grown and changed.

thanks so much for translating this, I was really curious about how long Yuuko has been missing. Maybe the shop became a regular house now...

Thanks for adding the side note about the pun with Destination and future. <3

nah, one of these days they'll wake up to find they're sleeping in an empty lot with the storeroom in it. :-)

No prob, it's my job.

thanks!!! you are a sunshine!!

Thanks so much - I don't really want xxxHolic to end but I do as I just want to see Watanuki safe and sound. :)

Thank you for the translation!

Himawari cooked! That's so cute! *-*

I won't comment on the rest since I'm with everyone else, I want to see the end of the egg and Doumeki's cheekiness is LOL, just inviting himself over and draining the sake xD

Thanks for translating! It's true, everyone has changed so much, not just Watanuki.

When Himawari baked cookies for Watanuki I felt so happy and giddy inside and teared up a little! XD Shows you that everyone has changed with happy results. Hope he gets through to that woman.

Nice of you to point out that bit with Doumeki. Looks like he really made up his mind to protect Watanuki to the end. Which would be sweet if, you know, there wasn't so much bitching and screaming? XD
