RN Arlen ~ Official Data File: Prologue ~

Rouge et Noir OFFICIAL DATA FILE

Everyone gets short stories that are set just before their CD’s events. Most of them talk about the guys’ past actually, but Arlen gets this really fun one where it explains just how he knew the MC was an undercover agent. It also shows that the MC wasn’t just an inexperienced rookie, and it’s just unfortunate she went up against Arlen.

Rouge et Noir OFFICIAL DATA FILE

There’s three special stories in the Data File that talks about everyone’s pasts: Makabe and Kurusu are paired, then Suou and Sena, and then Arlen alone. I translated Arlen’s story here because it is so well written and critical to his character (gets me like no tomorrow too). Please enjoy!

Rouge et Noir ~ Double Down ~

Rouge et Noir ~ Double Down ~

The Narcotics Control Division of the Port and Harbour Ministry of Welfare continued to be pressed for a response to the new drug, Rouge et Noir.

You were assigned to the Special Criminal Investigations Department (also known as SCID) in this urgent race against time and, because of your excellent grades hammered out through a training program and that you were one of the few female narcotics officers, you were given an extremely unusual mission as a newcomer.

It was to make contact with Arlen Clive, an executive leader of “House” the criminal syndicate which was distributing Rouge et Noir, and infiltrate House alone.

In the bar that Arlen frequented, according to eyewitness information, you caught his interest and you ended up constantly nestled close to him as his lover.

However, as you spend time together, you were gradually drawn to the mysterious and gentlemanly Arlen—.

R18 content warning. Finally caught up with the old releases too, so now I can work on the actual commission. Thank you everyone for your patience (and enduring my obsessive complex that made me want to translate all the previous ones for my collection).

Here is a timeline for those confused since I’ve jumped around the series: Under the Gun > Check in the Dark > Double Down > Eye in the Sky > Pure Bluff > Second Barrel > Implied Odds > Maximum Bet > All In. Jacks or Better occurs somewhere after Double Down and before Maximum Bet. Makabe’s VR edition is also a side story.

Double Down seems to be something more done in blackjack than poker, but basically you double your bet in exchange for receiving only just one more card and then you’re forced to play it or show your hand. So, it’s a big gamble for big rewards.

SNB Toyotomi ~ 光盟 Chapter 3.1 ~

Chapter 3: Will

A scream echoed on the battlefield. When they ran towards the location of the voice there they found Toshiie heavily injured by Mouri Motonari. Despite trying to use her blood to heal Toshiie’s wound though…

Chapter 3.1

I ran towards Hideyoshi-san and the others and the sight I saw was a collapsed Toshiie, covered in blood.

[YUZUKI]: “Toshiie-san, please hold on…!”

[MITSUNARI]: “He’s still breathing! At any rate, we must stop the bleeding…!”

[HANBEE]: “I have cloth here! Mitsunari, press down over there.”

[KANBEE]: “It’s quite a serious wound. If we do not treat him immediately—“

[HIDEYOSHI]: “… To think he’d aim at Toshiie.”

Chapter 3.5

[KANETSUGU]: “Haaaaagh!”

The yakuma that was slashed didn’t collapse and continued to attack.

[YUZUKI]: (Even though everyone’s attacks are hitting it’s unperturbed…)

[RANMARU]: “I’d like to… avoid wasting energy like this…”

Chapter 3.4

Pursuing the light of the sacred treasure, the place we arrived at was—

[YUZUKI]: “A large stone slab…?”

When I took a single step the light released by the sacred treasure suddenly disappeared.

[RANMARU]: “For the light of the sacred treasure to disappear here means that lithograph is what we’re searching for… right?”

[KOJUUROU]: “It’s too much to think of it as a coincidence.”

[HANBEE]: “Hey, it looks like there’s some sort of letters carved there. Let’s go a little closer to examine it.”

Rouge et Noir ~ Check in the Dark ~

Rouge et Noir ~ Check in the Dark ~

Due to the flood of a new type of drug, Rouge et Noir, the Narcotics Control Division of the Port and Harbour Ministry of Welfare was pressed to deal with that every day.

The Special Criminal Investigations Department (also known as SCID), which was suffering from a serious shortage of hands, requested the forensic officer, Kurusu Rei, who belonged to the Forensic Department, to assist temporarily with the investigation. You, a new narcotics officer, were selected out of many people to persuade Kurusu, who had expressed his disapproval.

Kurusu was interested in how you were partnered with Makabe Ryo, a narcotics officer belonging to the SCID, and agreed to assist with the investigation on the condition that he would have a date with you. Somehow, you began the investigation while being toyed with by Kurusu, who didn’t show his true feelings.

However, due to Kurusu’s meeting with a “certain someone”, the situation began to move in an unexpected direction—.

R18 content warning.

Here is a timeline for those confused since I’ve jumped around the series: Under the Gun > Check in the Dark > Double Down > Eye in the Sky > Pure Bluff > Second Barrel > Implied Odds > Maximum Bet > All In. Jacks or Better occurs somewhere after Double Down and before Maximum Bet. Makabe’s VR edition is also a side story.

Check in the dark is a lot like betting in the dark (mentioned below) but with a check. Basically, it means that before the cards for the next round are dealt you will have announced to everyone that you’re going to check without looking at them. Checking means to pass the action to the next person without making a bet. You can only check if no bets have been made.

Chapter 3.3

We met up with Takenaka Hanbee of the Toyotomi army and Katakura Kojuurou of the Date army before trespassing into Mouri territory.

[KOJUUROU]: “… That sacred treasure continues to shine.”

[YUZUKI]: “Ah… yes, although I don’t know the reason.”

[KOJUUROU]: “Incidentally, what is your position in the Oda army? You don’t appear to be able to fight.”

Chapter 3.1

[NAGAHIDE]: “The Mouri army has withdrawn!?”

Having taken command of the main camp, Nagahide-san’s voice was rough at the facts told to him from a messenger.

[YUZUKI]: “That means Nobunaga-san and the others have driven the Mouri army into a disadvantage… right?”

[NAGAHIDE]: “No, it’s hard to think that from the reports I just received. What in the world—“

[RANMARU]: “Hurry! Over here quickly!”

[YUZUKI]: “Ah, Ranmaru-kun! Is everyone saf—!?”

Chapter 2: The Tip of the Blade

The war began at last with the dawning of the night. The commanders of each army attacked Motonari and the others one after another.

In order to fight fire with fire, Motonari and the others unsheathed their swords…

Chapter 2.5

Even after everyone in the Mouri army leapt onto the battlefield, I hid together with Imari-kun and Motonari-san in the forest.

[MOTONARI]: “… It appears that Takamoto and Terumoto have returned. Now then, I should depart—“

[YUZUKI]: “Huh…”

[MOTONARI]: “I also have something I must do, you see. Have no worries, I will be entrusting you to the two of them, princess.”

[MOTONARI]: “I will return immediately, so wait here.”

Chapter 2.4

On a hectically changing battlefield, Takamoto and Terumoto fought with Kirigakure Saizou of the Sanada army.

[SAIZOU]: “Heh, you two have no fortune. Of all people, you met a genius like me…”

[SAIZOU]: “It’s clear the loss will be with you. Just regret your bad luck.”

[TAKAMOTO]: “… Certainly, it is regrettable to have met you because I do not like to fight much…”
