I was re-reading parts of the Elfen Lied manga because I was feeling nostalgic and forgot about this entire section that's honestly pretty good.
Bando's the fucking best.

The end of that bit.
Use the thread however you want. I may dump more Bando segments if enough people want me to. I often forget the time he tried to strangle kids at a school when he only had one arm and was blind.

The original translation makes some pretty odd mistakes at times. For example, panel 5 and 6 here are actually Kouta saying "Nah... I didn't see any PANTIES, did I?", which makes Nozomi's reaction a lot more understandable.

I noticed in the chapter where Bando fights Nana the translation was bad too.
Original translation has him saying that .50 AE is a 9mm slug, when he was actually saying .50 AE has more power to it than 9mm.

Here we originally had Nozomi mentioning how her father called her an embarrassment and how he has no need for a coward like her, even though she tried her best to make up for her issues by studying as hard as she could. Makes his dismissive attitude towards her studies at the start of the special chapter all the more infuriating.

Pretty much every single speech bubble is off here.

>I couldn't just ignore it...
>Even though I'm the one who's at fault...
>You saved me, so...
>That's no reason to leap forward into a punch, ya know!
>Nozomi-chan, I guess you're not as clever as I had heard...

On a random note, Yuka randomly switching to an exaggerated country accent on this page was a bit of a meme in Japan.

Yuka certainly has reason to be confused by that last sentence. What Kouta's saying is that she has a weakness that nullifies all the gifts (her voice and smarts) heaven gave her.

What I din't get throughout this story is how the fuck up someone would ever be infatuated with this guy?
He has no redeeming qualities! Plain hobo asshole! Guess it has something to do with the fact that the girl was abused and raped. Still weird though.
