After getting back to the hotel, Giulio and I don’t have any energy or strength or will to report back to Bernardo…

Bernardo seems to understand our situation and doesn’t say anything piss-annoying.  All he does is say,


Bernardo: Don’t worry.

…to us.  Nothing more, nothing less.


After refusing Bernardo’s offer to call a doc, I take nothing but a first aid kit and hole up in my room.  Giulio…

I haven’t said a word, but he goes to another room, probably one that’d been prepared for him by Bernardo.  I…

giandaivanu4-3-2 Gian: …Shit…  The fuck am I getting relaxed for.  Fucking restless, stupid…!

I curse myself and throw the unwearable clothes and shoes across the floor.  I’ve got to get rid of them later…

bg00     bg0


I get in the bath and soak myself under the shower…

giandaivann4-2-2 Gian: …!  Ow…!

The pain that’d been lying dormant up until now wakes up hale and hearty under the bath water.  I wash off the dirt and blood clinging to the thin scratches, check the problem spots that’d gotten a hit or two…

There’s some marks on my face from when I’d gotten pushed into something, too.  Looks like the kind of cut that’d fester if I stick a bandage to it.  Like I’d gotten on the bad end of a razor.  I wash it…

And I wash the place where Giulio attacked.  A spike of pain…  Even after washing it, it throbs.  No blood’s coming out, but it feels really, really weird there…

giandaivann4-1-2 Gian: …Giulio…  That stupid idiot…

Surrounded by water and steam, I swear.  I wash up.  Long after the dirt’s stopped getting washed down the drain…

…I stay under the shower and the bombarding water.

bg00     bg62

berndaivan2-2-2 Bernardo: But … amazing job on returning safely.  I’m sorry…  To think you’d actually attack…

Bernardo pours some whiskey into the coffee cup in front of me, and … looking like he’s reminiscing on something, continues.

berndaivan4-7-2 Bernardo: To think, that you would truly annihilate the GD’s advance troops.  You two … really are something.  The Lucky Dog and Mad Dog … hm…
giandaivanu1-5-2 Gian: …I did practically nothing.  Giulio’s … the one who did it all.  D’you go … and take scout the place out?
berndaivan4-4-2 Bernardo: Yeah.  With that, it would indeed be impossible to clean it up.  By the time my men were heading down, police and firefighters were already flooding into the Bronx.
berndaivan2-2-2 Bernardo: …It looks like the front page for every morning paper will be the same tomorrow.
giandaivanu3-13-2 Gian: Probably…  We did whack that many…  It’s about impossible for the coppers to turn a blind eye to this one.  …They’ve got an arrest warrant out on us?

Bernardo buries his face in between his interlaced fingers and gives a horribly fatigued moan before saying,


Bernardo: I’ve said this earlier, but … you don’t have to worry about that.  The one who ordered the attack … was me.  I will never sell you out to the police.

giandaivanu2-9-2 Gian: Seriously, I’m counting on you…  But, even if it’s the Bronx … with all those bodies, even the old Bondone’s not gonna be able to cover that one up.

Bernardo: I agree, too.  On top of that, the old geezer … sig. Executive of the Board of Direttores isn’t picking up the phone.  Either he’s working himself into a flurry or he’s planning something…


…Phone…  Something about the word catches in the back of my throat.  …What was it…

berndaivan4-2-2 Bernardo: That’s why we’ll be taking care of the Bronx wildfire.  …Don’t worry.  I won’t let you or Giulio make it to the morning papers.
giandaivanu2-9-2 Gian: R-Right…  Phone…  Phone…!
berndaivan2-2-1 Bernardo: Hm?


I practically fly straight off the seat.  I dash back to the room and look for the memo from yesterday – the memo that’d been on that Max GD person.

…There it is!  Thank the Lord I’d left it on the desk before going to sleep last night.  I’d been hoping to look into it when I had the time.

If I’d brought it with me today, it would’ve gotten soaked and turned to mush…  I open the memo…

giandaivanu4-2-2 Gian: …3, 4 … 7, 6…  This’s it…!

The numbers I’m staring at on the corner of the memo right now and the numbers I’d seen the GD gangster ring up on the phone I’d blasted apart with the shotgun match up in my head.

…No question about it.  The two are the same number.

I don’t know if this is a number to the GD HQ or the one they use to call for reinforcements.

But, Bernardo might know something…

bg00     bg62

I turn the memo over to Bernardo and I explain what I’d seen today…  Bernardo’s eyes narrow and he takes in the numbers on the note.  Silence.



Bernardo: A GD Executive was calling this number?

Bernardo returns the question, a rarity itself.  I nod back in reply.

giandaivanu4-4-2 Gian: Yeah.  No question ‘bout it.  I thought … maybe it’s a direct line to the GD headquarters.  If so, then maybe we can use it for something?

Just as I’m starting to get a little pumped up…


Bernardo shuts the note and looks off into the distance before giving a clear-cut answer.

berndaivan4-8-1 Bernardo: Unfortunately, this is not the number for the GD headquarters.  It’s also not any number I’ve flagged…
giandaivanu3-2-2b Gian: Oh…  Is that so…  …Wait, you know the number for the GD HQ?!
berndaivan4-1-1 Bernardo: Well, because there’s an address, I also know the number.  Although, what I have is nothing more than the number for their surface headquarters.
berndaivan4-3-1 Bernardo: Besides … the number on this memo isn’t Rockwell’s, where the GD headquarters is located.  …This is a local number, from inside Daivan.
giandaivanu3-6-1 Gian: Daivan’s?!  Why’re they…?  Where were they calling inside Daivan?
berndaivan2-3-1 Bernardo: I suppose I’ll look into whose number this is…

Bernardo smirks and, with memo in hand, stands.


Bernardo: I’ll be returning to my room.  Gian, today … you’ve done well.  You can rest yourself easy for the rest of today.

giandaivanu2-9-2 Gian: …I’ll take you up on that.  Oh right, where’s Giulio…?


Bernardo: He just went into the new room for him earlier…  I haven’t seen him since.  …Has something happened today?

Bernardo’s worried voice.  But … there’s no way I can talk … about that…

giandaivanu1-11-2 Gian: No … it’s … nothing important.  It’s, how d’you put it… I just got off on the wrong foot with him today.  That’s all.

Bernardo doesn’t question any further.  Wordlessly, he gives my shoulder a few pats before returning to his room.  I…

giandaivanu1-6-2 Gian: …Shit, I’m still fucking shaking…

There’s no cold, but my hands and body are shivering.  I can’t put strength into them.  They tremble like I’m suffering from some kind of cold or something.


…Now that I think about it, I didn’t have anything for lunch today.  Still, I’m not in the mood to go out or order room service.

…I don’t think I can even put water into my stomach today…

I roll over on the bed…  Suddenly…

giandaivanu1-11-2 Gian: …

I look over at the bed next to mine.  …I wonder if Giulio’s gonna come back here…?  …I…  …Will I let him…?

giandaivanu1-6-2 Gian: …That idiot…

Giulio attacked me…  Rather, fucked.  Raped.  Wrecked.

I’m still working up a rage over it, but…

If I had to say, it wasn’t just getting done in by Giulio.  It was more seeing Giulio … The Giulio – that silent, cold, fighting machine, ruthless as a road roller – like that…

…like a dejected puppy, tail between legs, that can’t even look me straight in the face…  That pisses me off much, much more.  If anything…

giandaivanu4-3-2 Gian: …That’s … that’s not you, right…?!

My thoughts take shape as words and leave my mouth, but … there’s no one in the room but me.  …I can’t even get up the will to down some booze…

giandaivanu1-6-2 Gian: …Shit…

      …I’m pretty sure the rest of the Japanese population agrees with you, lol. I haven’t really figured out why he’s #1 on many polls (other than Gian), but I do think he’s very intriguing.

        Feb 12, 2013 @ 21:28:04

        Maybe the japanese people have a thing for yandere characters. I don’t know. But for all his yandereness, Giulio is very intriguing.

          Feb 13, 2013 @ 00:21:10

          I think more than the yandere-ness, it’s that he’s quiet / proper and pretty… Judging from the rankings, most of the otome-fave charas that ranked high were like that (with the exception of #1), and the same goes for many of the BL-fave charas. The more mature ones or the quieter / more proper ones.

          Either way, Giulio has a very unique state of mind that I don’t see handled properly in many BL, so I was very happy to find a character like him. Even if he … may do things like in 10-4… ._.

    I love you! Guilio is so sexy and I’ve been waiting for you to translate this particular scene since the very begining! This might sound bad, but I’m a huge rape fan in yaoi. I thought this one was very well done. Giulio’s character is absolutely fascinating and makes you wonder how he got to that point psychologically.

    He might have an extreme case of bi polar personality disorder. One minute, he’s beating Gian up, pointing a knife at him and digging his face in the dirty ground while raping him. The next, he’s apologizing and pleading like a helpless child. How is he so twisted and bloodthirtsy yet innocent? So complex…keeps me so entranced by him. I also have been wondering if Giulio has his way with corpses. Although I’ve heard he was technically a virgin till Gian. (Also hott!)

    One final concern….why was Gian blushing when it didn’t even feel all that good at all? lol



    • terracannon876
      Feb 13, 2013 @ 01:00:15

      …Did I upload a wrong image. I’ll check it tomorrow. I don’t recall any blushing…

      Unless you’re talking about the larger images? In which case I can do nothing about XD



    • terracannon876
      Feb 13, 2013 @ 01:02:11

      As for the first part… To each his err…her own. I will say that what I particularly liked about this scene was that it was NOT a typical “raep = better!” …Waaay too many of that in drama CDs.

      I also give points to Gian for not spazzing out about it afterwards where there’s so many more important things to worry about. Like the police. And running. *hugs*

      Bipolar personality disorder doesn’t mean what you think it means, I assume. 🙂 Formerly known as “manic depression” patients exhibit alternating episodes of mania and depression to the extreme. Giulio appears to have neither, as far as we’ve seen of him. He’s neither been in a super-elated mood nor was he ever incapable of getting up in the morning.
      Is it possible you either meant Borderline Personality Disorder or Dissociative Identity Disorder (formerly “multiple personality disorder”)?
      The former would explain extreme mood swings, but not much else. Also, I would say Giulio clearly isn’t experiencing a mood swing here, he has trouble even recognizing Gian in the beginning.
      The latter is still debated to even exist at all and not be better explained as a multitude of other disorders forming a clusterfuck of i’d-rather-have-the-measles-please. In any case I’d strongly oppose this assumption.
      In my opinion, without giving away anything the readers can’t know yet, Giulio is best explained to have psychotic episodes. Combined with his terribly violent job this is bound to escalate into equally horrifying manifestations. Such as playing with corpses. His unhealthy obsession with Gian comes into play and – well, let’s say he can be really glad for the effort Giulio to not just go to his happy place where what he’s doing is fun. He wouldn’t have survived it.

        I was referring to the last chapter. I and I wasn’t completely serious about Giulio having that particular psychological disorder. I was running my mouth, speculating. I would assume you arent a professional either so thanks for the advice but im still going to question what you say and still look into it myself. my sister is going to school for paycology. And i wouldn’t take this so seriously because it isn’t like anyone could accurately diagnose him since no one knows what’s really going on in the complexity of his brain. Giulio doesn’t say much and nobody’s knows what he’s thinking often enough to make an educated deduction of what disorder he has exactly



      • Britches
        Feb 13, 2013 @ 09:43:19

        Good! Always question what people put out there, especially on the internet. 🙂 When you ask your sister for advise, I’d appreciate it if you could drop another comment here afterwards, I’m really interested in what she’d suggest.
        I’m not taking it that seriously and apologize if I seemed aggressive, I didn’t mean to be.
        Also I must admit to “cheating” a bit, because there is a collection of official short stories written from the other four CR:5 members’ perspective, and with Giulio… you get a good insight into how weird his mind works. That doesn’t mean that I’d presume myself qualified to make an educated deduction, naturally.
        In any case, I was merely trying to start up a debate. So again, if you find anything else that could fit, please do tell. I like this sorta stuff. 🙂

    well giulio is a yandere i think but gosh i knw his past and i found a certain part cute. (tbh some yandere charas are famous for example from a otome game Amnesia, Toma is a yandere (wont say how) and i think he is very popular) but when i read parts like ‘tears in giulios eyes’ i couldnt help but go d’awwwww despite how he is~ he does care~ o(^3^)o



    • terracannon876
      Feb 13, 2013 @ 11:09:48

      That’s one of the main things that shows he’s not “just” yandere. Something’s up, and this route is about finding out just what that is.

      On another note, I personally wouldn’t even categorize as a yandere – or at least, not the way most yanderes are yandere (I used that word way too many times in that sentence…). Glad you’re actually reading into the writing that much =)



      • LilGamerGirl
        Feb 13, 2013 @ 11:25:36

        Well im one of those people who enjoy reading,commenting and voicing my opinion thats why I like reading detailed info. All I can say right now is giulio…GOOD LUCK~ and to be honest now that u mention it he isn’t quite yandere (unlike a certain character who put the main character into a dog cage ;P) its probably his past that is affecting him. Or something really bad happened… (I also found a cute amv of giulio and gian. I was like (0///0))

    OMG this. THIS. I am spazzing out, completely mind-blown right now. The NSFW at last! Really glad that the whole Youtube business hasn’t gotten you *too* down =/

    Giulio is the first true yandere I’ve met in my BL career and although there was an immense amount of squick in the previous chapter my heart just went out to him at that line – “It looks like he’d never expected, not in a million years, for me to come back, or for me to reach out again…” OH GOSH -glomps- It just seemed that he doesn’t have as much control over himself as he would like, and he knows himself that what he’s doing is wrong and yet…. well. Shit happens.

    Gian *has* to forgive him (because this is the best route~!) and I can’t wait to see how they’re going to resolve this. I felt so sorry for both of them through the whole NSFW last chapter, even though NSFW normally makes me pervhappy~ =3= There was just so much pain on both sides… =( But like you said I think it’s good that it breaks BL convention of raep=good because it obviously isn’t true in most cases in reality. Gian has risen even higher in my respect for him as a BL hero (he was already the highest to begin with, he just keep raising the bar O.o) on how he handled the whole thing, particularly because he was big-hearted enough to go back and drag Giulio home. I can definitely remember characters becoming major b!tches after pervscenes even if they were consensual. Kudos to Gian! -cheers-

    I’m expecting the next few chapters to be lots of plot from the GD phone number and a significant dollop of nice sweet Gian/Giulio making up. Waiting eagerly for your next update! (Next week? Please? =D)

    P.S. He *was* blushing at several moments in the game. ^^; Probably just to make the CGs a little prettier and less painful-looking…



    • Ohnogirl~
      Feb 13, 2013 @ 11:05:30

      See the thing is during that NSFW scene giulio was constantly apologizing and begging to gian to forgive and dont leave him. Now that left me like \(°^°)/ ohhh~. Im guessing he didn’t have control over himself and was totally aware at what he was doing. (This has nothing to do with this but im simply stating) now that made me love giulio even more, but gian has to forgive him (although it might take awhile) cause there route us epic!



    • terracannon876
      Feb 13, 2013 @ 11:23:33

      I’d call that “biological reaction” rather than “make it less painful” ^^;;

      I looked and it looks like you’re just talking about the CG scenes and not the portraits…? If it were portraits, I was afraid that I’d uploaded something wrong, but… =)

      Big-hearted … yes, that is a way to describe Gian. It’s what I liked most about him. If Gian had been a major biatch in this situation, then Giulio really probably would’ve been arrested and shiznit would’ve been worse than it already was. I’m just glad he had his head on straight even after the ordeal. Not that the attack wasn’t … important enough to warrant a biatchfest, but still. Life vs. death.

      …Hm. Well, waiting is good for the soul. You’ll have to wait a while to get what you want to see, lol. But I will tell you that the next scenes are my favorite in the route … other than one of Giulio’s bad endings ^^;;;



      • LilGamerGirl
        Feb 13, 2013 @ 11:30:25

        O no curiousiry want to know what the bad end is but I might regret it (;-;) haha ands I think everyone might of heard this.| ‘patience is a virtue.’ (^U^)/ if I can wait for manga chapters in english then ill wait for this too~

        Feb 14, 2013 @ 08:10:56

        Ohnoes are they gonna take ages to make up? AND the next update consists of a bad!end?! (°^°) Well I guess that having to wait is for the best since I kind of have midterms next week…. >.<||

        -huggles Gian- He's just amazing. I really hope there isn't too much suffering for both him and Giulio in the bad end…. -flails- My heart can only take so much…

        I don't think you uploaded the small pics wrong, just the larger CG images do show a slight blush. And, well, yeah. Biological. =.=

      Feb 13, 2013 @ 11:04:01

      Haha… My psych professor once said that, after everyone in the class took a depression test, about half of us could be diagnosed with major depression, and about 10% with clinical. And yet almost no one was seeing anything for it. Diagnosing for yourself or with characters, with test or not, is … interesting ^^;

No harm done, and thanks for being so civil in contradicting me. °u° Few people are these days, unfortunately. Looking forward to hearing your sis’ thoughts. c:

    Wow… and this is what happens in the best route? ;_; Poor Gian… But nevertheless everybody still thinks Giulio is somewhat adorable? I just feel for the both of them, really..
    On a side note though, today’s Giulio’s birthday! (15 Feb)

    Happy Birthday, Giulio!

    Thanks so much for the translations~ *bows before thy awesomeness*



    • terracannon876
      Feb 15, 2013 @ 22:39:43

      The main difference between best and not-best routes is mainly the ending. The stuff in the middle is all the same other than a few scenes where you make different choices.

      Ooh. I missed that. Happy birthday you crazy Giulio!!!

    I love that your doing this, its amazing!<3 BUT when are you going to update!!!!?????? it just ended?!?!! plz, plz pleeaaasseeeee update soon!!! Is there a way that I can be notified when a new chapter comes out?



    • terracannon876
      Feb 18, 2013 @ 18:43:00

      Updates come anywhere from 2 weeks to monthly, depending on my schedule. You can … follow the blog (it’s a tab to the bottom right, I think), but this only notifies you when there are new posts. It will usually be enough, as I make new posts when I update chapters. Otherwise, you’re stuck with checking in periodically. I think there might be some sort of RSS feed thing, too, but I have no idea how that works or if that’s even related, or rather I have no idea what I’m saying so I’ll shush now.

    Gian actually takes the whole thing rather… well. He realizes that Guilio’s got some serious sanity-slippage issues. I’m glad they show that yes, Guilio deeply regrets what he did, and yes, Gian’s actually a bit mentally traumatized by the incident. Still, it’s nice to see Gian still concerned for Guilio…
