RN Gilles ~ Official Data File: Fan Q&A ~

Posted on Updated on

Rouge et Noir OFFICIAL DATA FILE

LOOK, I’m just excited I can finally translate things from the Official Data File because, again, I finished translating all of Gilles’ volumes, ohohoho. The only reason I haven’t done it for the other men is because I want to spoil Arlen first, but every time I look at Arlen I burst into tears so I can’t get anywhere LOL.

Anyway, when they were preparing this ODF, they asked the fans to send questions and they picked a few of them to answer in the ODF. Surprisingly, Gilles was so popular that even though we knew nothing about him at the time (the ODF was released just after the first season) he still got a section. Even Mikado is touched at how Gilles, who started off as a nobody with just a name in Arlen’s Double Down CD, ended up becoming a whole character.

Well, let’s see what our watchdog has to say!

FAN Q&A

Q: Tell us about Arlen’s chauffeur!

A: You’re referring to me, I see. I’m Gilles. My full name is Gilles Lagrene. I have just a little French blood in me. So far as it goes, I’ve become Arlen’s aide but you can think of me as a jack of all trades and I do anything from chauffeuring to being a bodyguard to miscellaneous tasks.

Q: Is there any part of the boss you’d like him to fix that you can’t say to him?

A: On rare occasions, he heads out alone without a bodyguard and I would appreciate it if he stopped that. I’ll be in trouble if that person dies.

Q: I want to know what Gilles likes! For example, your favorite food or your favorite movie. Anything is fine, I just want to know!

A: If we’re talking about Japanese food then I like sushi. Arlen dislikes raw fish so, unfortunately, there aren’t many opportunities for me to go and eat that. For movies, I prefer action ones I can enjoy without having to think about anything.

Q: I know Arlen is, to Gilles, your superior but were there any times you wanted to be cut some slack, even if it was Arlen’s orders? Please continue to do your best and not lose to your boss, who asks for unreasonable things!

A: That person’s orders to withdraw from a location are always rushed. Even when we decided to abandon the high-rise apartment building, the extension of time I was given to destroy evidence and remove all the data was only around 6 hours. Then, like that, I had to secure a helicopter for escape and carry that injured person… that was pretty rough even for me.

      Haha, I wonder too and that’d be so nice! I’d love to see everyone after the mystery of the 1st season and stuff cleared up. COUGH COUGH MORE SOFT ARLEN PLEASE. But I also wouldn’t mind getting to know more about Gilles too! Maybe we can get an American spinoff with him.

    <<<Rouge et Noir ~ Maximum Bet ~ is memorable and leaves a good impression on me

    Gilles was so popular that even though we knew nothing about him at the time
    <<<do these guys have a ranking system who is popular. like most otome guys do.

      There was a character voting contest for Stella’s Osaka branch. I believe Arlen Clive won that one, Ryo Makabe 2nd, Rei Kurusu 3rd, Gilles Lagrene 4th, Eiji Suou 5th, and Senna Kashiwagi 6th. Not an official ranking popularity contest, but kind of shows who is popular and fan favorite.

      Maximum Bet is my favorite too, but his Double Down one is a close second :’)) just because it really sets up the intensity of his drive and emotions for his goal. Then combine that with his stories and I just… crumble to the ground. HE’S SUCH A TRAGIC MAN.

      snhgml has the right rankings down there. But this poll came out like one or two weeks before Gilles’ CD was released, so I don’t know what the ranking was like when the ODF was coming out (they never did a poll). Feels like most characters are beloved though, except maybe Senna who consistently seems to be given the least attention by fan artists and stuff.
