(Requested by Yellow Apple for this blog’s 3rd Anniversary Giveaway. I wasn’t able to find any other interesting drama CD so I ended up coming back to your first request ;;; I’M SO SORRY FOR HOW LONG IT TOOK. Also, there’s some more background information about these guys and basically everything that is going on in Diabolik Lovers Dark Fate in these three CDs that were translated by Rin from Love-colored Sky).

Diabolik Lovers ~ Sakamaki Shu ~

Posted on Updated on

Sakamaki Shu (逆巻 シュウ)
CV: Toriumi Kousuke (鳥海 浩輔)

Shu is the eldest of the brothers in the Sakamaki family. He comes off as being lethargic and disinterested in everything and anything but, as like all his other brothers, this personality came from an event in his past. He can be surprisingly sadistic and perverted. Also, underneath his lethargy, he can be quite cunning.

(I CAN’T BELIEVE WE DID IT. I finally collected all the vampires and this concludes my Diabolik Lovers journey. I won’t be playing More Blood or Dark Fate. Moreover, can you seriously believe it’s been two years since I started this game? LOL. I’ve finally completed Eva’s request from my blog’s first anniversary though ;;; SERIOUSLY THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR PATIENCE).

Diabolik Lovers ~ Sakamaki Laito ~

Posted on Updated on

Sakamaki Laito (逆巻 ライト)
CV: Hirakawa Daisuke (平川 大輔)

Laito is one of the triplets and comes with a manipulative streak a mile long. He appears to be a flighty and ditsy playboy but that just hides his perceptiveness and cunning. He has this habit of calling Yui by the nickname “Bitch-chan”. He also has a terribly cynical view on love and only seems to believe in lust due to his past with his mother.

((I don’t have anything to say about how long this took me. I’m really sorry! Laito was an interesting character but at the same time he didn’t… excite me. Anyway, I did things a little bit differently with going from Ending 01 to Ending 03 because that’s actually how it works. You start from Maniac and choose the “S” choices rather than “M” ones, which unlocks Ending 03 first and then Ending 02 is the full on “S” Ending)).

Diabolik Lovers ~ Sakamaki Subaru ~

Sakamaki Subaru (逆巻 スバル)
CV: Kondou Takashi (近藤 隆)

Subaru is the youngest of all the brothers in the Sakamaki family. He has a very short temper and tends to destroy everything around him; much to the displeasure of Laito. He talks a lot like a gangster and would probably be swearing every second word in English. He can be surprisingly sensitive and concerned about others though.

(I know a ton of people have been waiting for this route so I hope you enjoy! Also, every time Subaru talks you literally just have to imagine him making those “AH!? WHAT DID YOU SAY?!” noises like yakuza members. No, seriously, I’m not kidding he talks like that all the time).

Diabolik Lovers ~ Sakamaki Reiji ~

Posted on Updated on

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

Reiji is the second oldest of the Sakamaki brothers. He talks very politely and tries to uphold the image of being refined and not falling prey to his vampire instincts. He also acts like a caretaker for his brothers and cleans the house. He has a fondness for tea and his tea cup collection.

(Since so many people were requesting Reiji I decided to do him! I was also convinced by his Versus CD where he just sounds amazing. Can you believe that we’re halfway through the vampires? It’s only taken me like… half a year).

CV: Konishi Katsuyuki (小西 克幸)

(We made it everyone! The last round of the VERSUS series! Everyone who has stuck with me up until now deserves a cookie and hugs… and maybe a blood transfusion, haha. Before you ask, I don’t think I’ll be translating More Blood because I have too many projects going on already ;;; but Doropyan has been doing some!).

Diabolik Lovers ~ Sakamaki Kanato ~

Posted on Updated on

Sakamaki Kanato (逆巻 カナト)
CV: Kaji Yuuki (梶 裕貴)

Kanato is one of the triplets of the Sakamaki family. He’s special… in that he has a teddy bear who he talks to and treats as if it were alive. His hobbies include making dolls, eating sweets, and throwing endless temper tantrums. But in reality, he’s actually quite manipulative.

(I’m following the same format as my Ayato post. The prologue is the same up to the point where she chooses who to suck her blood since there’s added dialogue after completing a character. Also, all ENDS 2/3 requires Yui to make ドS choices instead of ドM choices after Maniac, so keep that in mind).

(Welcome to Round 2 with the audience versus the sadistic vampire brothers! I’m amazed we all haven’t dropped dead yet and, seriously, anyone who’s made it up to this point in this series deserves a cookie. We should all reward ourselves whenever we finish a track. Also, SUPER APOLOGIES FOR THE REALLY LATE TRANSLATION).

Diabolik Lovers ~ Sakamaki Ayato ~

Posted on Updated on

Sakamaki Ayato (逆巻 アヤト)
CV: Midorikawa Hikaru (緑川 光)

Ayato is one of the triplets of the Sakamaki household. He has a very selfish and arrogant personality and thinks himself to be the best at everything. He loves to call the heroine “chichinashi” which means flat-chested. He tends to be very possessive of what is his and very perverted.

(All the choices I make up to the Ending 01 are the M choices because it seems like that leads to the best end. I’ll only summarize briefly what happens if you choose the other choices to get the different endings in their appropriate sections. The Heaven scenarios are like extra special things.)

Sakamaki Shu (逆巻 シュウ)
CV: Toriumi Kousuke (鳥海 浩輔)

(Here’s a treat for you all! I mean, I’m basically the unofficial Diabolik Lovers girl around here now… /)_(\. I figured that since I’ve already translated all 6 volumes and will be playing the game, I might as well just suck it up and translate the Versus CDs as well! You have my OCD to thank for this..

I know that Misty Moon Night on tumblr has been translating the DiaLov Versus series as well, so you can go there to check out her translation too! We have different personal styles so you can check it out~! Don’t expect this to be a perfect translation because some lines were really hard (シ_ _)シ).

Sakamaki Shu (逆巻 シュウ)
CV: Toriumi Kousuke (鳥海 浩輔)

(So.. it’s been a really long journey. Can you believe that it’s been 6 months since I’ve worked on these translations since only one came out every month? When I write it down like this it makes me feel kind of amazed at how quickly the time passed. Sorry for how long it took to get this one out. Life can be blamed as usual.

Anyway, Shu is an interesting character by himself. However in this CD, because of his apathetic nature, Rejet made Yui a super creepy heroine. HOLY CRAP. All of my sympathy for her is gone because of how much she harassed Shu here. At any rate, I felt like I did a good job on this translation and there isn’t much to note since Shu talks normally. Also, I have no idea if I’m going to translate the Versus series, but I have a long time to think about it (・ω\).)

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).

Sakamaki Laito (逆巻 ライト)
CV: Hirakawa Daisuke (平川 大輔)

(From what I heard in his premium corner, I was looking forward to a playful flirt after Kanato but instead what I got was.. well.. this. Laito is insanely abusive. INSANELY. He’s also delusional and even more full of himself than Ayato.. This series is just plummeting into the land of the crazy, especially since this CD is full of dub-con. Reader discretion is advised.

I don’t recommend taking my translation as gospel for what Laito says either, because it’s difficult to get his implications across. Especially the line at 28:40, where he’s talking about how she lives. He’s not saying it in a tone of “the requirement to live here is..” It’s more like he’s pointing out that that’s the way she’s living in their house. Once again implying that she’s a… loose woman).

CV: Kaji Yuuki (梶 裕貴)

(Here’s Kanato.. the psychotically insane screaming satanic demon baby Σ(^∀^;).. while I loved Kaji Yuuki’s voice and range in the CD, I absolutely loathe Kanato’s character. I wish I could have set his teddy bear on fire and kicked it out a window.

Also, I’m sorry for the lower quality of this translation but his long monologues were really difficult to understand Orz. His way of speaking is really difficult to get across as well, it’s like sarcastically polite).
