Diabolik Lovers ~ Sakamaki Reiji ~

Sakamaki Reiji (逆巻 レイジ)
CV: Konishi Katsuyuki (小西 克幸)

(PRAISE THE POWERS THAT BE! They actually took a step back from the path this series was going down on and made Reiji so much more lovable. Or maybe I’m just utterly biased towards Konishi’s voice.. Ahh~ but Reiji is such a gentleman that hilariously enough I started to get offended at how much self-control he had. I was actually going “HOW ARE YOU RESISTING THE HEROINE’S MARY SUE POWERS (屮゚Д゚)屮“.

Notes about the translation: His keigo, or way of speech, is bloody hard to translate so just keep in mind that he talks and acts very politely, kind of like a butler! At the beginning he tells the heroine to sit seiza-style, which is why it’s so painful. I translated that part as “kneel” since it sounds weird in English to demand someone to sit seiza-style).

Reiji is alone in the room and talks about the sound of the chinaware, such as the spoon clinking in the cup and how suggestive it sounds. Then he waxes philosophical talk about how life, bound in a mortal coil, is full of danger and despair.

*you enter the room*

[00:40]Reiji: Hm? Why don’t you show yourself, instead of hiding?.. Although, if that’s where you’ve chosen to hide yourself, it’s a poor attempt. *sighs* Good grief, if it had been any of my brothers in this room they would have eaten you. *mutters* It’d be an eyesore.

[01:07]R: Come and kneel here. Yes, that’s right, in front of me and on the floor. Look, do it quickly. *you walk over and do it* Very good. Until I say so, you aren’t allowed to move your feet.. Heh.. I’m not being cruel. It’s a test to give you the perfect posture.

[01:41]R: Well now.. I shall continue my tea time. *chinaware clinking* *he sighs* Is something wrong? Is there something you want to say? Don’t misunderstand, I haven’t granted you permission to speak. Whose permission do you think you need in order to talk to me?

[02:18]R: Good grief.. but when I look at those unhappy eyes of yours, this tea becomes unappetizing. Isn’t that nice? You have permission to speak. Be brief.

[02:36]R: How long should you kneel like that?.. Until I tell you to stop. Who knows how long? Ahahaha.. Oh my, are your legs shaking already? It must be painful. But you have to wait until I’m pleased. There will be no leniency.

[03:10]R: What is it.. are you already crying? It’s exactly because of this.. that makes me dislike women. If you think I’ll end this just because you’re crying, you are mistaken.

[03:28]R: *sighs* How gloomy.. It can’t be helped, I suppose. Very well then, let us partake in some tea. You should consider this a privilege, to have me serving you personally.

*he walks off to pour some tea*

[04:00]R: Mmm.. Do you understand the delicate smell of the tea? Such a thing is wasted on you. It’s like the smell of a flower, isn’t it? Take a sip from it.. slowly.. It’s hot, so please be careful.

[04:26]R: Now, hurry up and cease crying. *mutters* Good grief, such a bothersome person. Well? Are you going to start talking now?.. What do you mean by “what”? Obviously, it’s about the reason that you came here, to this room, at this time.

[04:52]R: Be quick about it. Time is short, so I’ll give you three seconds. Three, two, one.. Hm? What did you say? You had a scary dream?.. *chuckles* I see. My goodness.. *chuckles*

[05:12]R: Ah ha, please don’t be angry. I wasn’t making light of your fear. Actually, I was thinking about how very like you it seemed and how cute that was.

[05:25]He finds it amusing that you’re having nightmares, but then he apologizes for being rude. He doesn’t think that it’s unusual for you to have nightmares, since you’re just an ordinary girl with no special attributes who is in a terrible situation. It’d be strange if you didn’t have nightmares.

At all hours you’re being called on by Ayato and the others and having your blood sucked in addition to being harassed. There really isn’t any time when you’re safe.

[06:15]R: *chuckles* Come now, your tea is getting cold. Please drink more, it’ll ease your feelings. You can’t possibly be refusing the tea I made, right?

[06:32]R: You want to drink it when it’s a bit cooler? No, it’ll be a problem if you don’t drink it right now. The delicious tea will be spoiled if you don’t drink it at the perfect time.

*you immediately drink it*

[06:50]R: *chuckles* That’s right.. please savor it slowly. Well then, I shall pour some for myself as well. *he pours the tea and inhales the smell* Ah~.. It really is a beautiful smell, isn’t it? If you weren’t here, then this would have been a perfect night.

[07:23]R: *sighs* What is it? You’ve been staring at me for a while now. Eh? You want to see me drink tea? You’re such a vocal person.. What is your intention for wanting to see such a thing?

[07:50]R: *clears throat* I like my tea to be slightly cooler. Please leave it alone, this is none of your business. Above all, I dislike having you touch my polished chinaware of the highest quality. I have to stand guard to make sure you won’t break my precious children.

[08:22]R: Cutlery are such wonderful things. For example, please look at this dinner fork. These prongs allow it to easily enter things. And this plate over here.. just thinking about what kind of cuisine it could hold gives me the feeling of action.

[08:42]R: But, the piece I’m most interested in right now is this teacup. Its form and ornaments are so detailed. Is it not more beautiful than any poetry and prose? Drinking blood from the inside of this.. just thinking about slowly sipping it.. *chuckles* Here, come closer. This is something a skilled artisan wouldn’t be able to duplica-.. Ah! You mustn’t touch it- *you break it*.

[09:20]R: *gasps* The teacup has.. Didn’t I tell you not to touch it?! Even still, you carelessly-.. Your finger.. has been cut. You’re starting to bleed, are you not?.. *sighs* It is because of this that getting involved with a human girl is… *sighs again* Let us quickly treat your hand. Now, be quiet and show me your wound.

[10:00]R: I’ll lick it clean.. like this. *kisses the cut* Did you not listen to what I said before? I’ll say it once more. Please be quiet. In summary, I’m warning you against resisting. This is treatment for your hand. If you struggle like that, it’ll only give you pain.

[10:33]R: That’s right.. You’re an understanding woman, aren’t you? I don’t dislike those. *kisses the injury again* *controls his breathing* Here we go. It’s over now. It was painful, wasn’t it? You hid it well. It doesn’t seem to be serious, but the placement of this injury means that you’ll feel it soon.

[11:06]R: In addition.. your blood.. is more delicious than anything I’ve ever tasted.. The reason why the others continue to seek you out.. Well, I can’t say that I don’t understand it. Your blood.. certainly has the power to drive us mad just from sucking it.

[11:34]R: *mocking* Is something wrong? You have such a frightened expression. Ahh~! I know exactly what you’re thinking about. From just a drop of your blood.. you’re thinking that I’ll go mad. You wonder if you should be on guard, am I right? You really are a simple person to understand.

[12:00]R: It could be called naiveté. But in reality, you’re just a fool who does whatever she wants and notices nothing, am I right? Oh my, that was quite rude of me.

[12:15]Then he talks about how they, the vampires in the house, are careful not to go mad. He also points out that beings which have given themselves over to the madness cannot act like gentleman.. especially when they’re in the presence of a woman’s blood. Basically, all they can think about will be wanting to drink her blood.

He tells you that if they were to become crazy for your blood, then you would be helpless. In the end, they’re that kind of creatures and you shouldn’t forget that.

[13:08]R: This is my warning. Yes, that’s right, you should feel privileged to have been given a warning.

*chuckles* He finds it ironic that after giving you this warning, he’s starting to feel his throat burning.

[13:35]R: It appears that treating your hand is the explanation for this. *steps towards you* *hoarse* In truth.. I can’t resist drinking your blood.

*you run away and try to escape*

[13:55]R: Ahahaha! Where are you trying to go? That door is locked already. Your expression reveals that you’re wondering when I had the time to lock it, am I right? To be so oblivious.. that’s why you’re someone who is only concerned with herself.

[14:11]R: Now then.. staying quiet would be for the best. Please relax, I won’t do anything painful. *walks towards you* To be content to stay quiet while looking at a demon.. what a foolish person. This is your mistake.

[14:35]R: Or is it that you understood exactly what you were doing and came to my room because of that? Mm, please enlighten me. *you run away* Oh my, are you going to keep silent? Will you not say anything to me?

[15:00]R: That’s fine. I’m curious to see how long you can bear this. Now then.. where do you prefer to have your blood sucked? Your neck? Your lips? Your wrist?.. Or from a teacup? Look..

[15:32]R: *laughs* It was a joke, just a joke. Your scared expression is really quite lovely. It makes you a target for teasing. Did you actually think that I lost control?

[15:50]Tells you that you’ve been in the presence of his brothers for too long, to have thought that he would lose control. Tells you not to make him laugh because, even though you are pretty and your blood tastes delicious, you aren’t his type.

If you want to drive him crazy, then you have to become a more refined woman. He points out that an ordinary human would have understood this already without him having to explain things, but apparently you still don’t understand. He finds that pitiful.

[16:42]R: Now then, what will make me lose control? What is with that expression? There’s fear, but also unhappiness. Heh.. It’s not unwelcome. In fact, it’s cute. You’re not happy at the thought of that?

*starts chuckling* At first he’s amused at your outspoken words, but then he reveals that he finds it rude or something. To stop you from doing it twice again, or thinking that you can continue doing it, he’s going to train you like an animal.

[17:26]R: That’s right.. The first thing to do is.. *snaps fingers* Ah, I know. *picks up tea cup and spills it* Oh my, the tea was spilled. What will you do now that it’s all over the floor? Hurry up, what are you standing around vacantly for? You understand what you should do, do you not?

[17:54]R: Isn’t it obvious? You should go down on your hands and knees and clean it.

You tell him you weren’t the one who spilled it. He’s surprised that you’d speak up against him like that, but then he sighs and mutters about how he’s disillusioned. Finally, he tells you to just do it and be quick about it. He’s not requesting you to do it, he’s demanding.

In short, he warns you against dallying. He also adds that he wants that spot to be sparkling clean in comparison to the rest.

*you give in and grab a cloth*

[18:30]R: Ah! You noticed that there was a wiping rag there. *you kneel on the floor and start wiping* *he snickers* That’s right, if you had honestly listened to my words in the first place then I wouldn’t have made you do such unpleasant things.

[18:54]R: It’s because your attitude is too terrible. Yes, that’s right, polish the floor from corner to corner. Kneeling on the floor like that doesn’t give you any refinement at all, but it’s fairly pleasing. It’s quite tempting.

[19:28]R: What? I have bad taste?.. Ahaha.. That may be so, but is there a problem with that? Nevertheless, you can stop now. *snaps fingers* Ah yes, next will you please stand? Look, be quick about it.

*you stand up*

[20:00]R: *sighs* As I expected. What kind of posture is that? Your back is bent. How undisciplined. Lift up your chin and stand straight. Oh my, you can’t even stand straight? That’s an extraordinary shame.

[20:28]At any rate, he isn’t disappointed in you, because there is nothing special about you except for your blood’s power. He wasn’t praising you. A loss is a loss, although there is no meaning in that if you don’t see one in it.

[20:58]R: At least you are able to dance, right? You can’t.. dance? *sighs* This is a problem. Honestly, what did your father teach you? I’m disappointed. Then tonight, I shall teach you how to dance. If you can’t do even that then your life has no worth.

[21:42]The thought of being in close quarters with a female gives him a feeling of disgust. But well, he doesn`t want to increase the ignorance around him. So he`ll give you special treatment. *chuckles* Asks what`s wrong and why you have a scared expression. Tells you not to be so reserved since he`s finally awake. And now the lesson begins!

[22:25]R: *claps hands* We’re starting.. is what I want to say, but before that please change into this dress. As my companion, I chose a pure white dress for you. It’s important to have good form.

[22:45]R: Are you pleased with it? This is a color that fits a young woman like you, unsoiled but easily tainted. Now then, go ahead and please change. Oh my, what are you looking for? You can change right here.

[23:18]R: Please relax. Though I might be seeing your body, I would not be feeling it during the dance. Ah.. unless, you want to experience it?.. pressed to me. *chuckles* If you don’t want that, then strip.

[23:45]R: Please pass over that corset. I shall fasten it for you. I’m starting.. *pulls on the strings* Heh.. does it hurt? But you must endure it to wear this beautiful dress. Now then, everything is over.

[24:14]R: Ahh.. this dress compliments you exceedingly. It is said that anybody can look good with the right clothes. It seems that my eyes weren’t mistaken. This expense wasn’t for you, only to appease my own tastes. Do not misunderstand.

[24:37]R: At any rate.. now then, may I have your hand? Oh my, what is the meaning of your hesitation now, after everything? Are you scared of touching me? But no matter what you say it is far too late to backtrack. Hurry up and come over here.

[25:06]R: By the way, you know the steps, right? *sighs* To not know even that much.. how shameful. Here, it’s a simple waltz. One, two, three.. One, two, three. Be more nimble and please follow my lead.

[25:33]R: The next thing is a turn. Now then, let’s try this once more. One, two, three. One, two, three. Oh my, you’re moving quite stiffly. Are you nervous? *whispers in left ear* Learn by imitating me more. Yes, more.

*you accidentally step on his foot*

[26:05]R: To tread on someone’s foot like that.. just how clumsy are you? Take a look. My shoes have been dirtied. What will you do about this? Apologies are meaningless to me. A punishment needs to be doled out to make sure you don’t make an error like this again, doesn’t it?

[26:34]R: Now then, what kind of punishment would be best? Heh.. your expression is extremely uneasy. Please be at ease for I am not like my other brothers who would hurt you or make you cry out. A man should be a gentleman.

[27:01]R: I shall simply kiss.. your small hand.. like this. *kisses* See? Why are your eyes so wide? Could it be that you actually wanted to be hurt? Hehe.. you should be more honest. Oh well.. now then, let us continue our dance.

[27:40]R: Heh.. it seems like your nervousness has disappeared. Yes, if you put your mind to it you can do it. It would have been better if you did this from the start. Well, that and this are two separate things.

[27:58]R: *chuckles* It appears that I am able to have fun from this. But.. because I failed to drink that tea.. my throat is burning. The taste of your blood.. spreading throughout my mouth.. just imagining it.. makes my throat burn.

[28:32]R: If I were to put my fangs to your defenseless neck, I would be able to free myself from this thirst. Ah~ there is no way other than this. *beside your ear* Your blood..!

*you trip*

[28:52]R: *sighs* It appears that you’ve twisted your foot. To be shaking to this extent.. How skillful. I would have liked to dance with you for a while longer, but with this it can’t be helped. I shall take you to a room.

[29:13]R: Since I am the reason for the pain in your foot, my conscience is distressed. That’s why… *lifts you up* This is the best way for me to carry you, I won’t do anything improper.

[29:30]R: Please stay still. If you struggle your foot will hurt. If you do not want that, then let me continue. Of course, if you want to feel pain then please continue struggling. If you do such a thing though, I don’t think you’ll be able to run away from me.

*he laughs* *door closes*


[30:07]R: Well now, please sit quietly on the bed. *drops you on it* Why are you looking at me with those eyes? Ah.. is it because this is my room? A brief comment, I never said that I would take you to your room. You were the one who thought that.

[30:37]He realizes that you really want to glare at him. But he rhetorically asks if you understand how much consideration he’s giving you, who is injured. Especially since he could have thrown you out to drink his tea in peace and quiet, which is what he would have liked to do. And so he’s actually quite reluctant.

[31:12]R: Oh well, this is how the situation is.. with you being here like this right now.. Hm? What are you so surprised about? These are obviously my true feelings.

[31:34]He seems to take offense to the way you’re staring at him with defiance/spirit in your eyes. So he grabs the foot your twisted and puts pressure on it. Then he talks about how you exist only because you’re useful right now. That kind of existence is desirable to him. It makes him pleased to see one.

[31:58]R: *laughs* Oh my, you averted your eyes. As I thought, you are really easy to understand. You have the freedom to look around the room, but do not make a mistake. You are not allowed to touch anything unnecessarily.

[32:22]R: Hm? Are you curious about the small bottles on the shelves? Hahaha.. your eyes are sharp. That is my poison collection.

He starts talking about how poisons are amazing in the way they quietly and slowly affect the victim’s body without them knowing it, until they start acting strange. For example, it can make the wide-eyed nuisance in front of him that is looking around his room feel in pain and make them want to double over and clutch their chest (veiled threat to you). He asks if you don’t find that a wonderful scene.

[33:15]He notes that you’re looking at him with contempt. Oh well, because he doesn’t care about what you think of him. But he doesn’t find you wise at all, since he’s already done something to you.

[33:48]R: *laughs* You still don’t understand? That’s right.. I placed a drop of poison in that tea you drank earlier. Haha.. HAHA! I was joking. I wouldn’t waste my precious poison on a worthless woman like you. And yet you were fooled.. how adorable. Once again I’m thinking that.

[34:33]R: That’s fine, isn’t it? I’m the one who chooses the victims who would experience my poison. “For example, who?”? Good grief, what a silly question. Those who disobey my rules, obviously. Please don’t be so afraid, since there are no problems if you behave.

[35:05]R: *mutters* However.. that good-for-nothing.. just killing him once would be too merciful. He needs to feel pain over and over again.. I want to continue to torment him. I hate him.. that person.

[35:26]R: Well.. what I said doesn’t concern you. Please forget what happened just now. It seems like I spoke a little too much. *sighs* This is a disaster. The reason why I’m so talkative may be because I drank a little bit of your blood.

[35:56]R: As I thought that blood is special. Sweet enough to get drunk on.. like the finest quality tea leaves.. No, above that, it’s something I can’t forget.

[36:27]R: What is it? That miserable look in your eyes. Could it be that you were worried about having made me a slave to your blood? Ah, I see. I was right on the mark.

*he bursts out laughing*

[36:57]R: If that’s the case, then you are treating me too kindly. How many times do I have to tell you, your thoughts are absurd.


[37:10]R: It’s exceedingly unpleasant. You’ve broken my rules by making me feel displeasure. “I didn’t hear that sort of rule”? How much of a fool are you? This rule need scarcely be said. Naturally, it’s obvious.

[37:46]Asks you if you didn’t realize that you’re a being that is inferior to him in intellect and everything else. He realizes that you honestly did think that you were equal to him though. That’s something unforgivable. And so he’s going to shackle you.

[38:15]R: It suits you. *whispers* How does it feel? The way your freedom has been stolen from you. Ahahaha.. Oh my, you’re already scared, aren’t you? Are your tears not running down your face? How sad.

[38:45]R: If you want to be forgiven then conduct yourself with more dignity. Where do you think you’re trying to go with that miserable expression? All that does is tempt me more.

[39:04]R: If you want your freedom then first.. you will need to steal this key from my hand. You can’t do it, can you? You are powerless.

[39:26]R: Ahahaha.. Please don’t glare like that. You should know in the first place that I won’t let you run away so easily. And so any hope is unnecessary.. like this *dangles key*. Oh my, do you want the key that badly? You don’t know when to give up, do you?

[40:05]R: Now, listen carefully. *whispers* You.. have nowhere.. to run. Hehehe.. If you weren’t aware then I shall enlighten you.

Talks about how even if you were to escape this room, there is nowhere to hide or anyone to save you. *whispers* Or it might actually be better if you were to just submit. *you cringe away and he laughs*

[40:53]R: Just like that your face became bright red. *you struggle* Oh my, do you want this key that badly? You don’t know when to give up, do you? At any rate, thanks to your struggling the room has become dusty.

[41:18]R: It’s such a shame, but I’m at the limit of my patience. BE SILENT. That wasn’t too much, was it? Just a little bit of my true strength and you’re shoved to the floor like that.. but well, that unrefined look suits you.

[41:57]R: It was your fault, since you angered me. Just when I was going to be merciful. At any rate.. I’ve given up on waiting to sample your blood. I will now decide on your punishment.

[42:33]R: Yes, that’s right.. the blood that is flowing inside of your body is good. It has value, doesn’t it? Well then, I’ve decided that I shall drink that blood to my heart’s content.

[43:00]R: *laughs* Now, hurry up and stand. Immediately! *you stand up* Hmph.. Good grief, you’re an unsightly thing, aren’t you? Miserable.. pathetic.. deplorable.. pitiful. But you humans are happy in your misery, aren’t you?

*you slap him*

[43:33]R: .. How interesting.. to strike my cheek like that. *chuckles* This is something that must be punished. Well then.. let us start. *whisper* Admit that you are Reiji-sama’s possession and give me your blood.

*you struggle*

[44:05]You both fall onto the bed and he notes how unhappy you look on it. But he points out that he can’t drink your blood if you’re on the floor. Plus, this place is much more preferable than getting his clothes stained. He sees that you still have defiant eyes. It amuses him how you won’t throw away your hope of running away, even when you obviously can’t.

[44:34]R: That look in your eyes.. I don’t mind it. Your hope, your shame, and your self-esteem.. I will erase it all. And after that.. you will have nothing but me.

[44:58]R: When did you start looking at me like that? Hehehe.. it’ll be worth seeing how long you can defy me. It’ll be a measure of your stubbornness. My throat is considerably thirsty now.

[45:21]R: We should get started soon. I am a vampire.. when I’m in front of you.. in front of your blood.. my reason crumbles. *shaky breathing* I’m thirsty. The thirst in my throat is demanding your blood. There’s.. no more need to suppress it, right? This is.. your punishment, after all.

*he bites you* *he starts gasping*

[46:00]R: My body feels dizzy. Your blood.. satisfies my thirst! IT’S WONDERFUL~! AhahahaHAHAHAHAHA!!

[46:22]R: When I was drinking your blood.. what did you feel? Your blood sent jolts through my body and blended with my blood. At that moment, what did you feel?!

[46:50]R: *chuckles* So you won’t say anything, will you? Just from drinking your blood once, you’ve become very quiet. Is that the form of your self-respect? “That’s not true”?

[47:15]R: So you still won’t become honest, will you? What a shame. *whispers* However, I believe that you’ve been disheveled by me. *breathes in and out* I am still.. thirsty. Right now.. I have no intentions.. of releasing you.

*bell rings* *he bites you again*

*he’s panting*

[48:04]R: *laughs* The night is still very long. Now then.. won’t you let your blood.. satisfy my thirst? Hahaha..

      I stumbled across this website and all of these today, thank you so much for going out of your way to translate these ^.^

      Ah, Reiji’s my favourite Sakamaki brother, I don’t know why, I just…O///O. Maybe it’s because of his ‘gentleman’ personality, or that I’m into guys who wear glasess…or have black hair? *Shrugs* Eh, whatever the reason is, I’m still a Reiji fangirl x3

      I’ll be going to fangirl ‘quietly’ now.
      ~Crimson (<— Random nickname I go by. Crimson is a lovely colour…Crimson is the colour of that povely red liquid that we bleed called blood .3.)
      P.S The main thing that I don't like about Yui is her masochism. Then again, I'm not a masochist. I'm more of a sadist. I have a very low pain tolerance and I definitely don't feel pleasure when hurting myself…Unless its very slight amounts of pain…Oh Kami, right, I may have a slight, teensy, tiny masochistic streak. Why am I even talking about this? Ah well….

        Aw, you’re welcome and also welcome to my blog!!

        Haha, you’re not alone in liking Reiji :) he’s still one of my favorites too and it’s especially because of his gentleman-like attitude. The way he always tries to keep his cool and be polite is adorable.

        I’m not sure if I’d call Yui a masochist; at her core she’s someone who decided that she wanted to survive and did anything and everything that she could to make sure she survived her situation. I’m not saying her mind doesn’t get a little twisted during some routes (one of Kanato’s ends comes immediately to mind) but she definitely doesn’t like pain at the start.

        I’m also almost tempted to keep the whole bloodsucking thing (and the pain involved with it) separate from the topic of masochism because of how the act of bloodsucking has been romanticized through our literature. Heck, even BWS had a weird seductive bloodsucking part at the end of Arles’ route, haha.

    Thank you so much for translating this. I love Reiji so much and you satisfied me with all Reiji’s translation! Will you translate Reiji’s More Blood route? I hope you do :)

      You’re welcome <3! I'm always happy to share and spread the Reiji love |D (especially since he's not doing so well in the rankings in Japan //coughs).

      Unfortunately, I don't think I'll be tackling any More Blood translations simply because my interest has been more focused on other games /o\. Right now, my goal is to just finish Diabolik Lovers first and Amnesia Later to clear out my back log, haha.

    Okay, there 3 things I have to say after listening to this:

    1) Really, really impressed with Reiji’s self-control. He is the only one who doesn’t make me think will drink the heroine to dry (almost).

    2) Couldn’t help the goosebumps everytime he laughed and whispered.

    3) I love the ending song. It’s the one played on Diabolik Lovers’s homepage and at first I wondered if it is Reiji’s, it suits him somehow. Now, I heard it from his CD, nearly made me fall out of my bed.

    Finally, THANK YOU for these wonderfull scary bedtime stories (*´∀`*). My drop-dead-gorgeous-boys list is growing quite fast thanks to you (ノ◕ヮ◕).

      Heehee, I’ll reply with 3 things as well:

      1) I completely agree! It’s interesting on how all the brother’s have something that sets them apart from each other and Reiji’s self-control is one of them, although it got me kind of offended for the heroine at how he was so good at restraining himself.

      2) UGH. KONISHI’S VOICE IS TOO GOOD WITH THE DUMMY MIC. The only complaint I have is that his bloodsucking noises are a bit… well… my friends and I keep thinking he’s trying to hack up a hairball and ;;;; I hope I didn’t just ruin any mental images.

      3) Ooh, yeah! The piano background one right? I think all the guys still have their own theme songs if I remember correctly… Reiji also has tons of classical music |D;; like Chopin and Mozart.

      Aww, thank you so much for your comment and words! You’re welcome of course and I’m glad to drag more people into the vampire pit |D!

      I know, right? By the end I was at the edge of my seat thinking “Oh for… JUST LOSE CONTROL LIKE THE REST OF YOUR BROTHERS” |D;; and I actually got offended he wasn’t as tempted by her blood like the rest. You’re welcome too! Thank you for commenting!

    Just found your blog today, thanks for the translations, my japanese is laughable at best so I have a heck of a time understanding much beyond a general grasp of situations most of the time. Your translations are a great way of being able to get more of what’s actually happening! <3's for you!

    I just started playing the game recently, are you planning to do general descriptions of the different playthrough's/ending's? Not pushing, just curious. Either way, thanks again for all the lovely walls of text, reading them has absorbed my life for a few hours now XD

      October 18, 2012 at 19:46

      Awww, thank you so much! I’m glad my translations were able to help you understand it better ヽ(*´ー`*)ノ!

      I’m planning to do entire playthrough summaries like how all my other posts are :3 but since the game seems short they’ll hopefully come out pretty quickly. Oh god ( 。>艸<) I'm so sorry for consuming your life for a few hours fagkljhfds you should treat my walls of texts like bedtime stories www a chapter a day~!

    Thank you very much for the translation!! (´・///ω///・`)

    I’m DYING………
    Konishi Katsuyuki’s voice is kinda echoing inside my inner mind e_e

    As expected, he spoke so politely being Reiji-sama xD

      You’re very welcome ヽ(*´ー`*)ノ!

      Konishi’s voice was perfect for Reiji~ so sophisticated and calm and low. I wish he could have lost some control though ww that way there would have been more bloodsucking scenes.. although I don’t know if I like Konishi’s bloodsucking noises xDD;; the hissing noise scares me!

    Aaah~! Kuri-kun is so sorry! Life, school and general suckiness keeps Kuri from posting~!. Rest assured, Kuri-kun still reads all of them and rejoices in your awesome work~~~~ (*´▽`*)

    Well, what do we have here…? A butl-KONISHI KATSUYUKI.
    …SOLD! (≧∇≦)/

    To be honest, I was -really- looking forward to this one…Which is why it left me hanging, somewhat~ (●´∀`●) I’m relieved they didn’t go down the Raito path, though~ All the teasing and gentleman…ly behavour is actually quite refreshing after all those death threats, wouldn’t you say? (◕‿◕✿) Still, they could’ve gone a bit more…risque~

    Not much to say or, -COUGHS-fangirlover -COUGHS-, that I haven’t said already~ I -love- all the teasing, but Ayato and Subaru still hold a special place in my heart~ *(*´∀`*)☆

    Well! Guess we can really look forward to Shuu now! Wonder how they’ll pull off the entire lethargic deal? Short of making him ignore us through the entire track, I can’t imagine what they’ll come up with~ ⊙△⊙

    As always, please keep up the good work~ Us mortals salute you and encourage you! (´・ω・`)

      No worries ヽ(*´ー`*)ノ! I know how it is when life and school takes priority www I’m still adjusting to my new work schedule and trying to fit my gaming time in there somewhere.

      I was wary of this one ever since the crazy Kanato and Raito ones, but this one was pretty good! I’m a bit disappointed how controlled Reiji was as well, but I agree that his snark and politeness was amazing and refreshing xDD.

      Shuu’s is crazy in the sense that the heroine totally loses all her marbles and becomes like an obsessive stalker/barnacle on him. It’s insane! She frightens me so much in his CD. I’m like 1/5th through the CD so hopefully you’ll get to see what it’s like soon.

      D’aww, thank you so much~! I’m just a pitiful mortal too (๑→‿←๑).

        Inorite? Even though it’s my last year in High School, I’m up to my neck in exams; my roleplaying and/or gaming time has been reduced as well. I’m sure that a work schedule must be 10x harder~ Don’t give up, you have all of Kuri’s support~! ヽ(;▽;)ノ

        Kanato and Raito were waaaay over the line…Superb voice acting, b-but…still~ ;3; And I agree 100%!! Y U NO GO CRAZY, REIJI. I MEAN, I BROKE YOUR TEACUP, SLAPPED YOU AND I SUCK AT DANCING. The others would’ve eaten us alive for much less XDD

        WHUT. So now -she- is the crazy one? D’8 FFFF…I have Shuu’s CD laying in wait for your translation–Too afraid to listen to it without knowing what’s going on! ⊙△⊙ Still, no need to overwork yourself~ <3 <3

        Oh, that reminds me~! Since you mentioned Shukan Soine when we last spoke, I decided to check it out andtotallydragmyfewfriendsintoit.
        All I'm saying is…thanks to you, many girls sleep peacefully at night.~ (´ω`)

        B'aw, no need to be so modest~ Mortals don't make miracles and translate these borderline CDs like you do~ *(*´∀`*)☆

        Ilinox responded:
        June 19, 2012 at 18:10

        No, the game hasn’t been released yet. I don’t think it’s come out with a date either? She meant Raito’s path as in the way his Drama CD unfolded xDD.

    I finally got around and listened to this CD. Thank you so much for translating it, you did a wonderful job again! I had a hard time with his keigo, so your translation really helped me.

    But, while I love Konishi Katsuyuki’s voice, I found Reiji to be a bit, idk, boring? It was a nice break after the trainwrack that was Raito, but a little bit more S would have been nice.
    Then again, I’m one of the few people who loved Kanato, so it’s probably just me. I’m a sucker (no pun intended) for the yandere characters after all.

    I can’t wait for your translation of Shuu’s CD. I already got my hands on it, and listened to the first few minutes. Toriumi Kousuke is just perfect <3

      Ilinox responded:
      May 23, 2012 at 16:04

      “Good grief!” <– this translation of his まったく makes me want hide my face in my hands, but I couldn't think of anything else that would fit how uptight he sounded. I'm glad you find it helpful though!

      I know what you mean xDD while I loved his voice he didn't really do anything.. risque. He was just a snarky guy. His biting noises totally freaked me out though. I wish we could return back to Ayato and Subaru who didn't freak me out but maintained their sexy noises. I'm afraid Kanato and Raito just frightened me to the extreme.

      I'm just getting around to listening to it, but hopefully I can get his translation done soon!

        Oh, I know what you mean. English is not my native language. And while I’m pretty fluent, for some words it’s like… I know what they mean, but I can not translate them the way I want to. It’s so frustrating sometimes.

        Reiji’s CD ended, where the other CDs really started. Then again, it fits his image somehow. We all know that something is going to happen, but he’s too much of a gentleman for doing it in public, or so to speak, haha.

        I’m really looking forward to your translation, but take your time (⌒▽⌒)

    Just because these cds had everything i liked. Cute blonde girl getting deflowered by a bunch of hot crazy vampires. Oh yeah…<3 huehuehue

    When he was telling her to clean the floor. I was all like "oh yeah, so dirty~" lol

        You have nerves of steel, because Kanato and Raito terrified me, haha. I like to think I’m becoming more resistant to them the more I hear them though. I have a feeling that Shuu won’t faze me at all, but apparently he’s supposed to be nicer anyway.

        You’re welcome! I hope you look forward to listening to Shuu.

    Thank you for translating! Since he’s speech is very formal there were some parts that I didn’t get right, but thanks to you now everything makes sense ^^.
    This volume was really surprising. At first I didn’t liked Reiji at all, because I was fooled by him all the time! (hate that ( →_→)ジーーーッ゙) Every time I was like “There! There he goes! Now he goes crazy!” =.=
    But I was listening to this right after Raito, so I guess he still had influenced me a lot. Now I think Reiji is okay, but I still don’t like him that much, just because he seems very stiff.
    I probably should stop listening to Diabolik Lovers considering my health but now I’m even more curious of Subaru~

        I’m not too sure if I got everything right either ww but I tried my best /)_(\! His formal keigo was killing me too.

        LOL I was tricked by that too! I thought he would have freaked out when she broke the teacup or when she stepped on his foot, but nope, perfect gentleman ヽ(゚∀゚)ノ! Reiji is pretty high up on my list compared to his other brothers, because of the way he snarks xD;; it’s just so.. perfect. A little insulting sadistic, but nothing life-threatening.. until the end maybe.

        Yesh~ just one more to go and then we’ll all be out of this series, or at least until the game comes out wwww.

    来ました!Thank you again for your translation !

    I knew I am totally M after listening to Reiji

    He kissed on heroine’s hand not her lips TT

    Konishi-san’s voice is perfect ! but it is not enough about blood sucking and kiss scenes !

    Now I would like to send letter to Rejet who wrote this scenario ! Please bring back my ERO Reiji !!! TT

    But I still look forward to listen Shuu, hoping he will not too gentle like his younger brother

      Ilinox responded:
      May 5, 2012 at 08:30

      It was my pleasure to translate Reiji! He was totally unlike his brothers so I had an easier time with it, since I didn’t have to roll my eyes every 5 seconds (/ω\).

      I think Shuu is going to be even more gentle.. maybe, since he’s “lethargic” but who knows! Toriumi might prove us all wrong and be the ultimate ドS xDD.

    roiyachan said:
    May 4, 2012 at 00:12

    Oh wow hes my favorite now because he doesnt try to kill the heroine like Raito did or Scream like a demon baby at her like Kanato…maybe im getting Stockholm syndrome, l like Reiji because hes less abusive than the others haha.

      Ilinox responded:
      May 4, 2012 at 09:53

      Demon baby… *snrrrk* but yes, I totally agree! Raito and Kanato were the only vampires who made me fear for the poor heroine’s life, while Ayato and Subaru were just big teases. Reiji was menacing, but somehow he didn’t seem too bad because he’s so much of a gentleman.

      I think anyone who has listened up to Vol.5 of this series has been affected by them.. somehow.. we’re all probably corrupted or just deeply masochistic wwwww or morbidly curious. Just one more to go~ I hope Shuu blows everyone out of the water with how great her is!

    :D first off, THANK YOU SOOO MUCH for translating <3

    I have to admit, this was unexpected. After witnessing the behaviour of some of the others, this seemed so unusually… sweet! xD
    The moment the teacup was broken, I felt a chill rush down my spine thinking 'oh crap… I'm in for it aren't I?' and yet he was such a gentleman 8D

    I do feel Reiji is my favourtie now :3 (although that might change with Shuu xD) but it felt like 15 minutes too short, lacking the 'abusive' scenes. (I guess Raito had used up all their creativity :P)

    Thank you once again! :D
    Can't wait for the last (nuuuuuu Q^Q) one

      Ilinox responded:
      May 3, 2012 at 19:20

      You’re welcome~ (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚♥!

      I know right?! I’m kind of glad they took a step back, yet sad that there wasn’t an Ayato or Subaru-level of ero sounds, ahaha. Reiji loves to trick you with how he sounds like he’s going to explode or drink your blood, only to trick you Orz. It really kept me on my toes.

      I think I still love Subaru, my dear violent puppy, ( 。>艸<) although I'm looking forward to Shuu too! They really need to stop teasing us by saying that Shuu is sadistic in a way that is "pleasing to the heroine". What does that mean..

      I think Reiji's might be the shortest of the whole series? Although I believe Ayato's was pretty short too. Haha, once the drama CD series is over then you'll have to look forward to the game xD;;

    I feel like Reiji is a cat and the heroine is a mouse.
    He just enjoys batting her around and playing with her before he goes in for the kill, and with that in mind, this CD actually kept me more on edge than any of the other CDs.
    It didn’t scare me more so than made me feel uneasy though, like that feeling you get when you watch a horror movie and the stupid blonde girl is walking to open a dark room holding only a candle that’s going to flicker off and you’re like NOOOO DON’T DO IT.
    Konishi’s voice only made the whole thing even better.

    Great translation, as usual! c: I cannot thank you enough for your translations. They’ve enticed many a friend into listening to these CDs with me.

      Ilinox responded:
      May 3, 2012 at 19:17

      I still felt more scared during Kanato’s CD than any of the other vampires ;; although Raito’s was scary. I think, while Reiji proved me wrong in many things (I really thought he’d go crazy after the teacup’s destruction and stepping on his foot!), he talks so much about how he’s a gentleman, which prevents him from acting barbaric, that I couldn’t be too frightened of him www.

      That’s so true! It’s like “Why’d you have to touch and break that girl.. WRY?!”. Actually, the better question would be why she went to find him after having a nightmare…

      Thank you~! It makes me really happy to know that they’re useful in corrupting torturing more people with these sadistic vampires (・ω\)!
