Rouge et Noir ~ Show Down ~

These days, the Narcotics Control Division of the Port and Harbor Ministry of Welfare continued their busy days in the Port and Harbor City of Kaasa, which had regained its daily routine after the threat of the new drug, Rouge et Noir, disappeared.

Belonging to the Special Criminal Investigations Department (abbreviated as SCID) as a narcotics officer, you stepped into the ruins of a shopping mall inside Kaasa City, which had transformed into a lawless area, due to a joint investigation with the First Investigative Division. With the support of the intelligence agent, Kashiwagi Senna, a large number of drug dealers and drug addicts were exposed all at once and the joint investigation should have closed its curtains as a great success.

However, there was a sudden change in the situation because of a testimony from an arrested drug addict and you became embroiled in a complicated case where there were many swirling motives. In order to unravel the truth of this tangled case, you and Senna go to Kaasa’s newly opened casino, Port Club, which held the key to everything—

Thank you to the anonymous commissioner who pretty much backed half of the entire Rouge et Noir series here! R18 warning and drugs in the bad end. There’s a long timeline here, which I’ve tried to organize by tagging with the volume number but here it is again in numbered order:

  1. Under the Gun
  2. Check in the Dark
  3. Double Down
  4. (Jacks or Better)
  5. Eye in the Sky
  6. Pure Bluff
  7. Second Barrel
  8. Implied Odds
  9. Maximum Bet
  10. All In
  11. (Makabe VR)
  12. Show Down

Jacks or Better happens with another heroine (implied to be a US agent) and happens somewhere after Double Down but before Maximum Bet. Makabe’s VR is like a fluff spin-off but it’s positioned after All In. I actually haven’t listened to it yet (or translated it, oops) so I’m not too clear on its contents yet.

Chapter 3: The Withered Tree Flowers

An abrupt appearance of a commander of the Mouri army. Because of that one man, Kikkawa Motoharu, Kagekatsu sustained a grievous wound. The wound was deep and even with the power of her blood it couldn’t be healed. She wished strongly to save Kagekatsu and in that moment…

Chapter 3.2

The light that stretched towards Mouri lands reminded me about Himemiko-sama.

[YUZUKI]: (There might be a clue on Himemiko-sama in Mouri’s territory.)

[YUZUKI]: (If that’s the case, then wouldn’t this light also mean something…?)

[YUZUKI]: “Kenshin-san, maybe this light is a clue from Himemiko-sama? One to save Kagekatsu-kun…”

Chapter 3.1

Kagekatsu was cut down— such unbelievable information flew in and my mind went blank.

[YUZUKI]: (There must be some sort of mistake…!)

However, a limp Kagekatsu-kun carried into the main camp, without showing any signs of opening his eyes, made that wish in vain.

[KENSHIN]: “Kageie, please treat him.”

[KAGEIE]: “Yes!”

Rouge et Noir ~ Pure Bluff ~

The criminal syndicate, House, which has been distributing the new drug, Rouge et Noir, was gradually losing its momentum after having an important base crushed by the Narcotics Control Division of the Port and Harbour Ministry of Welfare.

During this, as a new narcotics officer, you were appointed by Chief Eiji Suou of the Special Criminal Investigations Department (also known as the SCID), which you belonged in, to be the liaison of the informant Senna Kashiwagi. It was to protect Senna, who had gotten involved in trouble for certain reasons, and to have him continue to cooperate with the SCID’s investigation.

You came and went from the SCID and Senna’s hideout, which was for planning House’s destruction behind-the-scenes, while being pushed around by Senna’s overly whimsical actions but—.

R18 content warning. Enormous thank you to the anonymous commissioner for this and their patience while I did the first three volumes. Senna’s volume concludes the first season of Rouge et Noir, which is also what the ODF contains.

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.

Pure Bluff is a bet that’s made with a weak hand that would, in all probability lose. Basically, you have no grounds on which to stand on but you’re going to bluff to try and get the other person to fold.

[KENSHIN]: (Could this happen to be…)

The moment Kenshin arrived at that possibility it was already too late.

[KAGEIE]: “—KAGEKATSU-SAMA!!”

[KENSHIN]: “!?”

From the distance he heard Kageie’s scream.

Chapter 2.3

The intensity and force of the large scale battle of three armies on three armies increased and, like that was being narrated, messengers took turns coming and leaving to Mitsuhide-san.

[MITSUHIDE]: “I see… However, please ignore that. More importantly, the Takeda army on the right flank will be troublesome in the future.”
