PRESENT: Hyoubu Akito (兵部 明斗)
PAST: Bandou Keijirou (阪堂 蛍次朗)
Let us go around and around, until the day we love (meet) again…
The one you met when you were reborn was the beloved of your “previous life”…
This is a love story about two sets of memories—
Thank you to anonymous for the commission! R18 warning. It’s been a long time coming, but I’m back with one of my favorite series ever! Fingers are itching to go ahead and do volume 2 too just to have a full collection, haha.
CV: Tamaru Atsushi (田丸 篤志)
The older brother of the “right firefly”, his glowing left eye is covered by an eyepatch. He has a cynical personality, doesn’t open his heart to anyone, is cold to them, and has an air of disinterest. It’s said he knows all sorts of secrets about the castle.
Here is the third volume in the series. Thank you to anonymous for commissioning the CD booklet translation. For the main CD, please refer to mikorin’s translation here. Please, please, listen to this series in order because everything builds on top of each other. WARNING: Macabre depictions.
Once upon a time, in a land that produced exceptional tea, a splendid mansion and new lord arrived.
This lord, who ended and drove away the previous lord that only did horrible things, was adored by the majority of the people in the land.
However, this lord had a little secret.
His large and sturdy body, which could be seen from very far distances, was always covered in a deep hood; his face was the only thing that was never shown.
“It’s said the new lord’s beard is blue and he must surely be embarrassed and doesn’t want it to be shown.”
“Elegant and mysterious, this gentleman is vastly different from the previous lord.”
Rumors such as these were whispered throughout the land and today was another calm day where nothing would happen.
Except for a certain house…
And thus, this little secret became a secret between two people only.
Big thanks to Tuo-san for the commission! R18 warning and bestiality (if you thought knotting was HM you might not want to know what a lion has…). It’s also available on JP DLsite.
Kaidou Osamu (皆藤 修)
Kaidou Reiji (皆藤 玲二)
Your relationship with the two men has continued on and on.
On that day too, you were loved the same as usual… no, even more intensely.
What was left on your pale skin were the other sides’ marks of possession, which darkened every day.
The heat of the lips that touched you made it hard to choose either one.
However, that moment suddenly arrived.
There was a life resting in you.
The one you choose as the father is…
Thank you to Yunfa for the commission! R18 warning and light incest. I am tackling the entire compilation, which is made up of three volumes, and you can grab this on ENG DLsite or JP DLsite. I realized I miscounted because there’s two endings for the men, so I’ll be making two more posts after this!
Tsuduki Kuon (都築 久遠)
You returned to the town, Kousaka, which you had lived in for ten years until your high school years. However, right after this, you started to have terribly obscene dreams every night.
Your days were troubled by the vestiges of this raw pleasure even for a dream and, when you woke, your body was left with a strong fatigue.
During this time, you reunited with your highschool classmate, Tsuduki Kuon. Kuon, who became an exorcist, told you that the cause of your obscene dreams was because you were possessed by a devil.
To save your soul, which had already been deeply corroded into, there was no other choice than to be given pleasure greater than the devil by the exorcist Kuon—.
Thanks to Lux for the commission! R18 warning but this is a fluffy CD so not much to say here. Except, uh… maybe Bible references if that bothers anyone to see it mixed with smut?
Seo Takaaki (瀬尾 貴明)
The heroine was hired by a certain cabaret club due to being the preference of a VIP customer, Seo.
She met Seo, who had an advertising company, in a VIP room on her first day of hire.
The heroine chose to have a physical relationship with Seo after being presented with the terms of several months worth of bonuses which would let her repay her student loans, and then she started to make plans for her future.
Seo enjoyed his clear-cut relationship with the heroine, but gradually he began to have feelings of love for her—
Thank you to Madame for another fun commission! R18 warning. Holy moly, this was such an intense drama CD and I wrote another intense thread LOL it was pretty much like one of those crazy dramas you’d see on TV or something. If Rouge et Noir is a Hollywood movie then this is definitely one of those melodramatic love dramas.
Hidaka Suguru (日高 英)
Mihashi Kazumi (水橋 和己)
Sometimes I’m used as “security for a loan”.
It all started when his best friend, Mihashi Kazumi, questioned me for loitering in front of a high-interest loan firm.
My freelancing lithographer boyfriend, Hidaka Suguru, takes breaks from his part-time job whenever he’s immersed in his creative work. During this time, I have a contract that says Kazumi is free to do as he wishes with me in exchange for financial support. But this is just “wordplay” and in actuality it’s nothing more than doing housework. There wasn’t any “doing as he wished with me”.
However, that balance collapsed.
Cerberus, who was made in my image, seemed to be the hound of the underworld.
This dog, which Suguru drew, had three heads and stood on a frozen river.
And then it asked me, “What is your decision?”.
I was overjoyed to nestle close and obey that man.
I felt at ease with the words given to me by another man.
I think being needed is the reason for my existence.
Right now, which man needs me more?
Great big thank you to Madame for the commission! R18 warning and this involves 3P, bondage, and anal toys. I feel like I should say something more here, but I don’t really have anything to say LOL. Uh, I guess I was somewhat livetweeting this while I was translating it and had some thoughts only for the CD to laugh in my face at the end. You can also grab it on JP DLsite.
Arlen Clive (アーレン クライヴ)
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.
Saijou Hikaru (西条 光)
Surprise! Here’s a freebie translation for the 300 DL cast talk reward, since I covered the rest of Hikaru’s DL rewards. It’s always fun to see what the seiyuu has to say about their role and character.
Saijou Hikaru (西条 光)
Big thank you again to ~DEFINITELY-NOT-EMBARRASSED~ for the commission because they also asked for the DL rewards, which all of the ones for Hikaru have been reached. R18 content warning.
Saijou Hikaru (西条 光)
Kuse Kazuma (久世 一真)
The photographed loss of virginity memento is the door to misfortune—
The heroine, who served as the vice-president of the student council at the private Yamana Academy, was engaged to her childhood friend, Saijou Hikaru, the son of the president of the Saijou Group.
Unremarkable compared to her beautiful older sister, she was under the impression that she was chosen because of the relationship between their families and out of compassion…
However, after Hikaru went abroad for heart surgery, she decided to dissolve the engagement after ending up with mutual feelings for Kuse Kazuma, her one other childhood friend who has secretly had feelings for her all this time.
As one of the three childhood friends who have always been close to each other, Hikaru would also support them— was what she thought.
When the student council room, which should have been a symbol of happiness, is stained with desire, the bond of childhood friends collapses.
Shout out to ~DEFINITELY-NOT-EMBARRASSED~ for the commission! Everyone probably knows this by now but we’re here with Touji’s only son, Hikaru, and the third volume in the series. You can pick it up on the English DLsite or the Japanese DLsite. On a side note, I’ve also increased my diaries for this entire series to two parts now LOL so if anyone’s curious there’s Part One and Part Two. At this rate I’m going to end up with three moments.
R18 content warning and dubcon, exhibitionism (one part), and dark themes though I just keep thinking about how Hikaru is a good boy and he DOES get a happy end so… LOL.
Saijou Hikaru (西条 光)
Hikaru: Heheh… hahaHAHAH!! Did you notice just now!? That, starting today, you are my wife! Now, come! I, as your diligent husband, will give you the most supreme pleasure! You can no longer… escape to anywhere.
Saijou Hikaru (西条 光)
Hikaru: *phone rings* Hello? Eh? Really!? Haha, thank you, father! I’m grateful to you! Ah, she hasn’t noticed yet. Hehe, I bet she’ll be shocked tomorrow… oh, sorry, I’ll talk to you later. *ends call; heroine comes over*
H: Welcome back. Did you finish the teacher’s task? I see, then it looks like you can go home early today, huh. Tomorrow’s going to be a busy day, so you should get some rest. Eh? For what, you ask? There’s going to be a lot of things… delightful things, you see.
