Chapter 11

A Bright Future

If Ivan Affection > 10, Luck > 95, Omerta < 24, then view best ending.  Otherwise view normal ending.


…Shit … the world turned black all of a sudden.

Ivan: …?  H-Hey! Gian…?!

…It’s kinda warm…  …I feel like drifting off, just like this…

Slap!  Slap!

Gian: …Ow!  Ow, fuck that hurt…  Shit…!  I’m a patient here!  Don’t you know you don’t slap patients?!
Ivan: Shut up!  …Y-You weren’t breathing just now!!

Oh … no wonder it’s warm…  Ivan’s holding me in his arms…

Gian: But, you know … I’m kinda sleepy, so…
Ivan: Don’t fall asleep here!!  …You hurting anywhere?  Any pain…?

…Hahaha…  The idiot…  Why’s he looking like he’s about to cry…?

Giulio: Signor Gian…?!
Luchino: H-Hey, are you all right?  Your face is sheet-white…!
Bernardo: That’s enough, Gian.  Rest up.  We’ll handle the rest.

Before I realize it, all of the other captains – Bernardo, Giulio and even Luchino – have surrounded us.

Hahaha … everyone’s looking so worried…

Bernardo: …It looks like he’s pushed himself too hard…  Wait there.  I’ll call for a doctor and a stretcher…
Ivan: Don’t need ‘em…!  …’cause I’ll be carrying him!

Ivan waves his hand about like he’s trying to shoo the others away before he picks up my limp body.

Gian: Ow!  That hurts…!  My ribs hurt, so don’t hold there!
Ivan: O-OK…

Ivan tries to hold me up by the shoulders.  He supports me as we slowly trudge to the elevator, one step at a time, with me wobbling and crutch in hand all the while.

Gian: …Gh…!
Giulio: Signor Gian!  Don’t—

Just as Giulio tries to help, Luchino’s large hand falls on his shoulder, halting him.

Luchino: Those two…  They’ll be fine.
Bernardo: You’re right…

The three captains left behind watch closely over the two men trudging away, inch by inch.

Behind them…

Alessandro: And that is famiglia.

He appeared at some point in time.

Bernardo: B-Boss?  Are you already finished with the directors?
Alessandro: I’ll be at a dinner with them from tonight ‘til tomorrow morning.  …Not all of them are enemies.  Don’t threaten them too much, Bernardo.
Bernardo: Y-Yes…
Luchino: …But is that all right, Boss?  If you take Gian off the line as the next boss, I feel like they’ll start quarreling to find a new candidate.
Alessandro: Hm?  I did only say ‘temporarily stasis.’  When the time comes…  Everyone, even they, will understand…
Alessandro: …why I chose him.
Bernardo: You believe you know why, though?
Alessandro: Hehe, who knows.  …Oh well.  I’m tired, and I’m thirsty.  It’s been a while, so accompany me.
Luchino: With pleasure.  I’ll ready the car.
Alessandro: No, that seat there’s fine.  Call a bellboy over.

Even though he’s not all that tall, the man – the Boss – standing among the captains appears larger than life, as though he’s radiating light.  The captains all surround him as they walk forward.

Giulio: …

Giulio’s feet halt.  Ivan and Gian disappear behind its doors just as he turns to look back at the elevator.


Gian: …Whoa, the elevator’s floating…  …Ow, feel like I just got kicked in the balls…
Ivan: Be grateful.  That just means you’ve still got ‘em.

In the elevator, I stay leaned up against Ivan…  …His body is kinda warm…

Ivan: …Jeezus, you keep doing crazy shit.
Gian: …Which time you talking about now?  There’s too many I remember…
Ivan: Stupid idiot…  …Don’t you dare die from something like this!  And if you die before me, I’m gonna fucking kill you!
Gian: Hahaha, the hell’s tha—  … …Ow.  Guess I can’t laugh.  My ribs feel like they’re stabbing me…
Ivan: Guess you’re stuck in bed and reading the bible for a while.
Gian: I think I’ll die of boredom before my injuries even come close…  …Oh, right.
Ivan: What…?
Gian: I can’t have sex for a while, so if you find your libido going outta control … I grant you permission to take a stroll down Tramp’s Lane, ‘K?
Ivan: I-I’m not stupid!  I can jerk myself off if I have to!!
Gian: Don’t be so proud of it, doofus.
Ivan: Sh-Shut up…!  Th-Then … you know…!
Gian: …Hm?

The gauge on the elevator approaches the floor my sickroom’s on.  Ivan glares around him, like he’s pissed off at something, before…

Ivan Best Ending Image appears here.  As per agreement with tennenouji, it will not be displayed.

Gian: …Mm?  …Mmgh, nnh, mrgh … you…

Ivan: …I’ll settle for this…  Nn…

Ivan’s lips cover mine, practically swooping in from above.  I throw all of the little strength I have in my body forward…

Gian: …Nn … mmh…

…And we stay like this until the elevator stops.

…And when the elevator stops, a jolt runs through me…

Gian: …Fucking owwwwwwwwwwww!!

    Lol!! Only Gian would give permission for his lover to go find escorts to take care of his problem.
    “I can’t have sex for a while, so if you find your libido going outta control … I grant you permission to take a stroll down Tramp’s Lane, ‘K?”

    He is the most unique character I’ve ran into. You just have to love his personality.

    The ‘why’ is left out. I feel it doesn’t fit. Unless you try to say: ‘… that’s why it’s warm…’

    I love Ivan to death, and think this couples really cute in it’s way (the lots of swearing kind of cute)
    But when Giulio stopped and looked back at them, my heart broke a little. He is and always will be my favorite. I love him. So much.

    I can’t wait until you start his route! Thank you so much for doing this! Your my hero!

      I’m glad you enjoyed reading =)

      Don’t worry. Giulio will probably be happy no matter whose route you’re on. That’s just the way he is. In fact, it’s surprising his heart doesn’t just burst from happiness when you’re on his route ^^;

      Mm. I’m going to edit that post to remove the image, sorry. (People can find it themselves anyways…)

      According to agreement with tennenouji, I can’t show the final CG or the 100% CG.

    Escuse me terra-san sorry for annoying question..i’m following your guide exactly like this best route walktrough but just in this section i don’t get this (“a bright future”) ending..but got “Just another day” (normal ending) i don’t know what i pass or where do i did wrong???huwee..i got 3 star and 100% i must got another ending of ivan first???bad and normal ending???@_@…??

      ohhhh…after i finish the bad ending (sob so frustating to finish bad ending route..T__T poor Ivan)…..then i come back again to
      Create Save File 02
      Prisoner (囚人)
      Ivan (イヴァン)
      Watch until end of Day 6, load Save File 02
      Ivan (イヴァン)
      Guards (看守)
      Ivan (イヴァン)
      Guards (看守)
      ..this i load again save file 2…then finally i got the best ending

      Firstly i don’t follow the walktrough but the translation (happily playing this game with your amazing translation)…When i follow the Translation Best route i follow the next next chapter so i don’t load again to load save 2 so the route is like > Day 6>prisoner>ivan>day 7>ivan>guard…..then i get “Just Another Day” except “A bright Future”…..when not doing it my first score is:
      prison > lucky:90%,Omerta:30%
      escape > lucky:80%, omerta: 10%

      Then i finish bad ending and doing what i write first…i look at walktrough to see what did i do?why don’t i get the best ending? then i load again save file 2 then i got score:
      prison > lucky:85%, Omerta:25%
      escape> lucky:75%, Omerta:5%
      The lucky and omerta is lower then the first time..but instead of it i don’t get option “….Like I can stop now.” which lead me to the Best Ending “A bright Future”

      I don’t understand this…did the order of translation wrong or i misunderstood the translation order (because my bad english) or maybe we must finish the bad ending first..

      i’m so Sorry for my rude and crappy english huhuhu…maybe that my comment can give more information if somebody trough same condition and asking you why they can’t get the best ending scene

      Thankyou so much much much much XD

        I think you made the most common mistake for those following the walkthrough – the part where I go into alternate scenes. I need to fix the formatting there. You’re not the only one who’s tripped up there (about 10% have, maybe). (There’s a warning at the bottom of the day 6, I think, about how doing one thing vs another WILL change which route you get.)

        But thank you for being so specific in your analysis! It’s a great help =)

        I’m glad you could find the best route in the end. And it looks like you enjoyed Ivan’s route a lot =)

    Wow…you replay me in instant @__@…working hard on Guilio part??Ganbatte!!!!!!!!!!…
    Yes.. hehe i remember there’s some warning that i read again and again but my poorly English brain maybe too slow to catch it hahaha.. *like Ivan speak Italian*..

    I played lucky dog 1 first time in 2011..i really want to play it when it outs and get attracted to Ivan (i don’t know i have loud,tsundere,or loud big guy like Honda from Kichiku Megane, or Kiryu from Omerta fetish) but thanks to my slow internet (i come from Indonesia ^^) i don’t really have high hope to play BL games hehe just looking at the CG (and get nosebleeding)…then in 2011 my game online friend share same hobbies too (fujoshi hehehe) give me lots of BL game (sank on nosebleeding sea)..i played it with AGTH and don’t understand Japanese =_= so i just using my poorly brain to estimate what happened from the CG, voice actor and AGTH crappy translate (still can produce sea of nosebleed)…Then of course i just random choosing the option haha when there is Ivan name i choose Ivan lol…..then in Wednesday i want to play some BL game then installing my Lucky dog 1 again then googling some walktrough..then Sweet Jesus Have Mercy i found your blog….with Ivan route @__@..completed…i love youuuu…with your translate now i can really understand what really happened (not just my poorly brain fantasy) and it’s so Cool (i can laugh and cry..even fantasize if i’m in Gian position =_= *cough cough,)…in 2011 i don’t even get best route =_= (too happy with normal ending then playing another game)..

    Seriously thankyou Terra-san for your hardwork…..i don’t really know what your through but i ever write a blog and helping someone attach some translating in 10 minute video…just 10 minute video it took many times @_@ i can’t imagine your hardwork…you even still work on translate other 3 route…may fangirl spirit be with u…Thankyou thankyou thankyou..sorry for spamming your every comment haha
    *oh my God since when i write this long paragraph..i’m sorry for took your time..and sorry for my crappy grammar…omg and sorry for many sorry…

      I understand how hard it is to write in a language that isn’t your own (*looks at own emails to tennenouji… GOD ><)

      I'm glad everything with the routes is resolved =) And I don't think I ever told you this, but thank you for reading and commenting everywhere! It always makes me warm inside to read comments, especially on past parts XD

    Hi terra 🙂

    For some reason, I’m not able to get this scene: a bright future.
    Instead, I always get the normal route ending, which results in the normal ending credits. I still got the sex scene (time limit), but I can’t get the best route ending.. I don’t know what I’m doing wrong 😦
    Also, I’m a bit confused about the alternate choice back in the prison. I did the regular choice and completed the normal route. Then, I went back to do the alternate choice and went along the best route path, but still got the normal ending?

    Also, I didn’t get this part of your walkthrough:

    “Create Save File 02

    Prisoner (囚人)
    Ivan (イヴァン)
    Watch until end of Day 6, load Save File 02

    Ivan (イヴァン)
    Guards (看守)
    Ivan (イヴァン)
    Guards (看守)”

    What do you mean, “Watch until end of Day 6, load Save File 02”
    I don’t quite understand that part either.

    Hope that makes sense, and I’d really appreciate the help^^



    • terracannon876
      May 21, 2013 @ 22:13:22

      That … would be why you didn’t get the Best Ending, lol. This is the part where, depending on the order / what you do, decides between Normal vs. Best route.

      Basically, Create a save file. Let’s call it 02. Play Prisoner => Ivan. Watch until end of Ivan’s scene, and then restart your game. Load from your save file 02.

      Then, from your restarted game from save file 02, choose Ivan => Guards, etc.

      Day 6 refers to that ingame day. Remember that at the start of each chapter, there’s a Day 1! Day 2! Day 3! etc.? I’m referring to that. Watch until the Day 7 chapter marker comes on, basically.

      If you’re still having trouble getting the Best Ending, ONLY DO Ivan => Guards => Ivan => Guards. Do NOT do Prisoner => Ivan.

      I hope this helps.

    OHH I see! Oops I can’t believe I didn’t realize my mistake haha.
    Anyways, thanks so much for helping me there! Finally got his best ending^^

    It was great! I just wished the route ended after the elevator scene (which was super adorable btw!) I didn’t like how they added that short little scene where Ivan was on his death bed 😦 It kind of ruined the happy ending for me. I don’t quite understand why the creators added that scene, since I don’t see the point of it? Well, was touching and I’m glad they spent many years together 🙂 But still.. 😛



    • terracannon876
      May 21, 2013 @ 23:27:39

      The creators thought up Ivan from his death scene, and worked backwards. They are also very not afraid of addressing the issue of death — seen not only in the bad endings, but also in their latest short story series. They make it very clear that, yes, these characters are alive during the 1930s. No, they are not alive in our present time.

      …But of course, in my headcanon, Gian is alive forever and ever XD

      Did I make you depressed??? XD



  12. Jelena
    May 22, 2013 @ 12:03:34

    I don’t get how they thought of him from his death scene and worked backwards? The death scene seems a bit choppy/disconnected lol.
    And aww I already know these characters wouldn’t be alive today, but I didn’t want to see that.. haha I guess I’m a little depressed now xD

    i play this again…..Y___Y got so much laugh and tears in the end…amazing ending for the next part…. just find in here when Ivan said “if you die before me, I’m gonna fucking kill you!” how ironic…this is so sad…T__T but great at the same time…thx terra…

    I have no idea how I’m supposed to get the best ending here. I don’t understand the directions all that well. I played through the Best Ending walk through and got the normal ending but I don’t understand how creating the second save file and restarting would affect the ending??



    • terracannon876
      Mar 03, 2014 @ 22:26:21

      Basically, every choice you make affects the Omerta or Luck meters or Ivan’s Affection level. Because the choices are different in the Best Ending vs. Normal Ending routes, the choices are tailored towards getting the requirements for those endings. That’s why the save files are important. You start up before a certain choice and you play down through the game with that choice instead.

      Out of curiosity, did you use the Walkthrough in addition to the translation? The Walkthrough format might be easier to understand.



  15. Lisa
    Mar 03, 2014 @ 22:37:15

    I followed the translations and did the whole pirsoner -> Ivan alternate scene thing and got my luck up but I didn’t restart I just played through like that and I still got the normal ending.



    • terracannon876
      Mar 03, 2014 @ 22:39:15

      That’s because going through with the alternate scene will get you the normal ending, especially if you follow the rest of the walkthrough. You have to go through with the non-alternate scene and choice.

      Also, Best ending isn’t gotten with higher Luck. Every ending has its requirements, but it’s not always high luck.



  16. Lisa
    Mar 03, 2014 @ 22:40:30

    Okey doke. I just wasn’t sure what I was supposed to be doing. So if I go through without the alternate scenes that should do it?



    • terracannon876
      Mar 03, 2014 @ 22:41:34

      Yeah. If you don’t go through with the alternate scene, you should be able to reach the Best Ending. It’s the top mistake players using this translation make, so you’re not the only one 🙂

    Mar 03, 2014 @ 22:43:25

    Ah okay! Sorry about the confusion and thank you for the clarification!

    Hey there! Just wanted to thank you very much for translating all these! Reread them pretty much every once in a while when I had the time – Ivan’s route cracks me up every time, that little closeted tsundere him. Still love the way you’ve written these translations, must’ve been quite a ride to write them in the way it should be – funny, energetic and definitely fluid in all that cursing! Ah, I do love me some foul mouthed humor, such wonderfully colorful words, oh and the part where he does about his rackets and proceeds to act out those painfully embarrassing lines to the girls at the brothel? Lovely work.

    It’s been a few years, and I just wanted to say thank you for your hard work, and I hope to see more in the future! No matter how long it’ll take, cause I’ll be a silent cheerleader that creepily stalks your website time and time again to cheer you on – silently. So, keep up the good work, and hope that the real world treats you good as well!
