上空で爆発炎上した飛鯱丸は、鬼燈城の中庭からも望むことができた。
Even from the courtyard of Houzuijyou, they could see the Tobichachimaru in the sky as it burned from the explosion.
「おい、やベェことになってるぜ!」空を指さしながら、収監者たちが口々に叫んだ。「このまま、落っこちてくるんじゃねェか?」
“Oi! This is getting bad!” While pointing at the sky, the prisoners shouted several times. “At this rate, isn’t it going to fall (out of the sky)?”
それは、シカマルにも、ちゃんと見えていた。
Shikamaru saw (the situation) exactly like that as well.
数分前に、突如、鬼燈城の上空で落下傘がいくつも開いたのだった。
A few minutes beforehand, several parachutes suddenly opened in the skies above the Houzukijyou.
カカシが搭乗客を首尾よく逃がしたのだと判断したシカマルは、落下してくる人たちを救助すべく、リーとサイを天守閣の屋根に配し、サクラ、チョウジを引き連れて、収監者でごったがえす中庭へと走り出た。
Shikamaru concluded that Kakashi had successfully freed the passengers. In order to rescue the people who were falling, he had stationed Lee and Sai on the roof of the castle tower. Taking along Sakura and Chouji, he ran out and into the courtyard, which was in a commotion because of the prisoners.
飛鯱丸が閃光に包まれたのは、シカマルが落下傘を二十一まで数えたときだった。
The Tobishachimaru was engulfed in a flash of light. Meanwhile, Shikamaru counted up to twenty-one parachutes.
火はすぐに消し止められたようだが、そのあと飛鯱丸から落ちた者たちの落下傘は、けっきょく開かずじまいだった。
However, the fire seemed to have been immediately extinguished. Afterwards, the people who were falling from the Tobishachimaru were eventually not opening their parachutes.
そして、コントロールを失った飛鯱丸が、少しずつ小さくなっているのは、見間違えようがなかった。
And so, the Tobichachimaru lost control. Little by little, it was becoming smaller. There was no mistaking it.
上空の風向きを考えると……シカマルは計算した。飛鯱丸が鬼燈城へ突っ込んでくる可能性は、限りなく低い。だが。。。
Considering the direction of the wind in the sky….Shikamaru calculated. The likelihood of the Tobishachimaru plunging into the Houzukijyou was endlessly low.
「やベェぞ、ありゃ……」
“This is bad, so they…”
チョウジの視線を感じながらも、シカマルは飛鯱丸から眼を離さなかった。
Although he sensed Chouji’s glance, Shikamaru did not release his eyes from the Tobishachimaru.
「ゴンドラが落ちやがった。いまのあの船は、重石を失ったようなもんだ……どんどん上昇していくぞ」
“The gondola fell. As for the ship, it’s as if it lost weight now…it keeps gradually rising”
チョウジがゴクリと固唾を呑んだ。「どういうこと、シカマル・・・・?」
Chouji gulped and swallowed his saliva during the tense situation. “What are you talking about, Shikamaru….?”
「上空一万九千メートルあたりで、血液の沸点は体温と同じになっちまう」シカマルが言った。「船に残ったやつら、死んじまうぞ」
“When you reach 19,000 metres (in altitude), the boiling point of blood will be at the same temperature as the body.” Shikamaru said. “The remaining guys on the ship will die.”
「!」
「!」
「どうするの……」サクラが色をなした。「まだカカシ先生が中にいるのよ!?」
“What should we do….?” Sakura’s countenance changed. “Isn’t Kakashi-sensei still aboard!?”
「あんなに上がってしまってちゃ、もうサイにだってどうしようもねェ……」シカマルが苦しそうに言った。「とにかく、オレらはオレらにできることをやるぞ」
“If it rises to that extent, even Sai won’t be able to do anything anymore…” Shikamaru painfully said. “Anyway, we have to do what we can”
「落下傘が降りてくるわよ!」見張り櫓の上で、テンテンが叫んだ。
“Parachutes are descending!” Tenten yelled from atop the watch-tower.
「天守閣のほう!」雨雲にさえぎられた淡い陽光を背に受けて、最初の落下傘がゆらゆらと天守閣のほうへ 流れていく。
” From the side of the castle tower!” The faint sunlight that was being obstructed by the rain-clouds was shining upon their backs. The first parachutes were slowly swaying and streaming towards the side of the castle tower.

シカマルが見上げると、天守閣の上でリーがうなずいた。
When Shikamaru looked upwards, Lee nodded from atop the castle tower.
横風が吹き、落下傘が流される。
A crosswind was blowing. The parachutes were blowing away.
落下傘と人を繋ぐ紐。。。吊索がもつれ、そのせいで人の体が振り子のように、右に左に大きく揺れた。天守閣の上で待ち構えるリーたちの手をすり抜け、そのまま監房棟へと落下してゆく。
A cord was fastened from the parachute to the person….but the hanging cord was getting tangled. Because of that, the person’s body was swinging like a pendulum: swaying greatly from right to left. Lee and his comrades were laying in wait on top of the castle tower. However, they slipped through (the shinobi’s) hands. At this rate, they would continue to fall towards the cell buildings.
「あっちにはキバとシノが待機して。。。」
“ Kiba and Shino, standby in that direction…”
着地点がカッと白熱し、シカマルの残りの言葉を、爆音が吹き飛ばした。
The landing point suddenly became incandescent. Shikamaru’s remaining words were blown away by the sound of the explosion.
ドオオオオオンッ!
Doooon! (Boom!)
「!?」
「!?」
監房棟が白煙に包まれ、すぐに火の手があがった。
The cell building was enveloped in white smoke. Immediately, a fire broke out.
「な、なんだぁ…?」
“Wha- What…?”
「シカマル!」立ち尽くすシカマルの耳を、いのの金切り声が打った。「落下傘のベストに青火粉が仕込まれてる!」
“Shikamaru!” While he was standing motionlessly, Ino’s shrill voice hit his ear. “There is Aobiko stocked in the vests of the parachutes!”
「……はあ?」
“…Huh?”
「カカシ先生から連絡があった!」天守閣の窓から顔を突き出して、いのは声をふり絞っ た。「すぐに敵襲があるわよ!」
“I was in contact with Kakashi-sensei!” She projected her face from the window of the castle tower. She shouted at the top of her voice. “There will be an immediate enemy attack!”
「マジかよ…」
“Are you serious…”
次の落下傘は、城門のすぐ外に落ちた。
The next parachute fell immediately outside the castle gates.
耳をつんざく爆音が轟ぎ、爆風が城門を吹き飛ばす。
The ear-splitting sound of an explosion roared. The blast blew away the caste gates.
収監者たちは、顔を見合わせた。なにが起こっているのかは分からなかったが、次の爆発で塀が崩れ落ちると、まるで夢から覚めたかのように、歓声をあげて走りだした。
The prisoners looked at one another. They did not understand what had happened. However, with the next explosion, the wall crumbled down. As if they had woken up from a dream, they all cheered and starting running.
「ひゃっほーい! やっとこんなくそ溜めからおさらばできるぜ!」
“Whee! At last, I can say good-bye to such a shitty cesspool! “
「もっと降ってこい、落下傘!こんなところ、徹底的にぶっ壊しちまえ!」
“Keep falling down, parachutes! Completely destroy this place!”
混乱はそれだけでは、収まらない。
That wasn’t the only chaos. (The commotion) wasn’t settling down.
「我龍様!」
”Garyo-sama!”
黒装束を着た忍たちが城内へなだれ込んできて、 大音声で呼ばわった。
There were shinobi in black clothes. They came rushing into the castle, yelling in loud voices.
「どこにおられます、我龍様!」
“Where are you, Garyo-sama!”
「チィ……めんどくせーことになったぜ」
“Urgh…. This became troublesome…”
シカマルは、手のつけられない混乱のさなかにあって、地面に落ちた落下傘の影を狙って、術を繰り出した。
In the midst of the unmanageable chaos, he aimed at the shadows of the falling parachutes (that were heading) towards the ground. Shikamaru unleashed a jutsu.
「影首縛りの術!」
” Kagekubishibari no Jutsu!” (Shadow-Neck Binding Technique)

シカマルの影がグンッとのび出し、落下傘の影を捉える。その影が支えとなって、落下傘の本体が空中でピタッと静止した。
Shikamaru’s shadow started to elongate with a ‘gunn’ sound. It grasped onto the shadow of a parachute. That shadow became a support. The body of the parachute suddenly stood still in the sky.
「テンテン!ベストを傷つけずに、留め具だけ壊せ!」
“Tenten! Without damaging the vests, only destroy the clasps!
見張り櫓から跳んだテンテンが、いっせいに忍具を飛ばす。宙吊りになっている男のべストの留め具が破壊されると、男の体が落下傘からするりと抜け落ちた。
Tenten leapt from the guard tower. Simultaneously, she was hurling ninja weapons. She destroyed the clasp on the vest of a man, who was suspended in mid-air. The man’s body then smoothly escaped from the parachute.
「うわああああ!」
“Uwaaaah!”
「ふんぬ!」落ちてきた男を、 チョウジがガッシと抱き止める。「どっせい!」
“Urgh!” Chouji caught the falling man with a ‘gasshi’ sound. “Yeah!”
空っぽのベストをつけたまま、落下傘が風に吹き流されていった。
Still attached to the empty vest, the parachute was blown away by the wind.
息つく暇もない。
There was still no time to catch a breath.
人間爆弾は、次から次に、空から降ってくる。
One after another, the human bombs were descending from the sky.
「影寄せの術!」
“Kageyose no Jutsu!” (Shadow Gathering Techinique!)
実体を持ったシカマルの影が、たちまち無数の触手となって、一度に十人を空中で釘づけにする。本来は影を使って物質を手元に引き寄せる術だが、その物質を…つまり落下 傘を、元の場所にとどめておくこともできるのだ。
With the form of his shadow, Shikamaru suddenly (created) a countless number of tentacles. All at once, he nailed down ten people from the air. By nature, the usual jutsu was used to draw something towards himself with the shadow. However, the substances (that he was pulling)….was ultimately the parachutes. In other words, he was able stop (the falling people) in their original location (/right where they were).
天守閣のほうで、爆音が轟いた。
In the direction of the castle tower, the sound of an explosion roared.
「我龍が逃げていくわよ!」ベストの留め具を壊しながら、テンテンが叫んだ。「どうするの、シカマル!?」
“Garyo is going to escape!” Tenten shouted as she was breaking the clasp from a vest. “What should we do, Shikamaru!?”
どうするったって……術を発動しているシカマルは、動けない。黒装束の忍たちに守られた我龍が逃げていくのを、眼の端で追いかけることしかできなかった。いったいどうすりゃいいってんだよ!?
‘What should we do…’ Shikamaru (thought). He could not move because he was using a jutsu. From the side of his eye, (he could see that) Garyo was escaping. He’s being guarded by shinobi in black clothing. He could not pursue him. ‘What the heck should I do?!’
落下してくる人たちを、サイの鴻がさっと空中でかっさらっていく。
Sai continued to quickly snatch the falling people in the air with his large bird.
上空では、シノの寄壊蟲が黒い雲となって、落下傘に群がっていた。蟲たちにベストの留め具を食い破られた男たちが落下してくると、リーが跳び上が って空中で受け止めた。
In the sky, Shino’s Kikaichuu (Parasitic Destruction Insects) formed a black cloud. They swarmed towards the passengers. The insects were eating away at the clasps of the vests that were attached to the men as they fell. Meanwhile, Lee leapt upwards and caught them in the air.
キバとチョウジ、そして暗部たちは、逃げ出した収監者たちを追った。 牙通牙と肉弾戦車が同時に発動され、収監者たちをなぎ倒していく。
Kiba, Chouji, and the ANBU chased after the prisoners who had escaped. Simultaneously unleashing Gatsuuga (Fang Passing Fang) and Nikudan Sensha (Human Bullet Tank), they mow down the prisoners.
混乱の渦の中で、シカマルは空を見上げた。
In the midst of the swirl of chaos, Shikamaru looked up at the sky.
残る落下傘は、あと四つ。
There were four more parachutes remaining.
「シノ!」シカマルは叫んだ。「落下傘のほうは、まかせていいか!?」
“Shino!” Shikamaru shouted. “Can I entrust you with the rest of the parachutes!?”
「ああ」蟲を操りながら、シノがうなずいた。「お前は、我龍を追え」
“Yeah” While manipulating the insects, Shino nodded. “You (should) pursue Garyo”
シカマルの眼が、人だかりの先にある、黒装束の一団を捉える。色づいた楓の葉が舞い落ちるそのむこう側で、我龍は忍たちに守られていた。
In Shikamaru’s eyes, he perceived that the gang in black clothes was in the group of people ahead. There were fluttering and falling maple leaves that were changing colours. On the other side of them, (he could see that) Garyo was being protected by shinobi.
「待てっ!」
“Wait up!”

数人がこちらに向き直り、さっとクナイを飛ばしてくる。
Several people turned around (to face Shikamaru). They quickly hurled out kunai.
「どけェ!」シカマルはクナイを避け、駆けながら印を結んだ。
“Move!” As Shikamaru avoided the kunai, he made seals while running.
「影縫いの術!」
“Kagenui no Jutsu!” (Shadow Sewing Technique)
鋭利な針と化したシカマルの影が、敵の足をいっぺんに刺し貫く。
Shikamaru’s shadow became sharp needles. They pierced the legs of the enemy, at one at a time.
足から血を流しながら、敵の忍たちがバタバタと倒れた。
While bleeding from their legs, the enemy shinobi noisily collapsed.
シカマルはそのまま我龍を追ったが、数歩も行かないうちに、足が止まった。
He continued to pursue Garyo. However, before he could take several more steps, his gait stopped.
「……?」
「……?」
なんと、面妖なことに、相手のほうがこちらへ向かって走ってくるではないか!
What? This is weird. Why is the enemy facing us and running towards this way?!
「ど、どうなされました、我龍様!?」面食らっているのは、 黒装束の忍たちも同じだった。
“Wha- What are you doing, Garyo-sama?!” The shinobi in black clothing were also similarly confused.
「さあ、早くまいりましょう! 」
“Alright, quickly come (over here!)
「どいてよ!」忍たちをふり切ると、我龍はこちらに向かって大きく手をふった。 「シカマル!」
“Move!” Brushing off the shinobi, Garyo faced (towards Shikamaru), grandly waving his hand.
「なんだぁ…?」
“What…?”
シカマルは眉間にしわを寄せた。我龍のやつ、あんなオカマっぽい声だったっけ?小脇を締め、まるで少女のように走ってくる我龍に、シカマルは身構えた。「止まれ!」
Shikamaru wrinkled the middle of his forehead and furrowed his brows. That guy Garyo, he has such an effeminate voice? Garyo was running completely as if he was a young lady, tightening his arms under his armpits. Shikamaru put himself on guard. “Stop!”
「もう、なに言ってんのょ……我龍はあたしが捕まえてるから、あんたはチョウジたちと逃げた収監者を追って!」
“What are you even saying? Because I seized Garyo…. You, Chouji, and his comrades (should go and) pursue the prisoners who have escaped!”
「…… 」
「……」
「なにボーッとしてんのよ……あたしよ、あたし!」
“(I’m saying this as their) boss….It’s me, it’s me!”
「ああ……いのか?」
“Ahh….Ino?”
どうやら、いのが心転身の術で、 我龍の中に入り込んでいるようだった。
It seemed like with Ino’s Shintenshin no Jutsu (Mind Body Switch Technique), she had infiltrated into Garyo’s mind.
「いい、あんたたち!」いのは。。。我龍の姿をしたいのは、敵の忍に向き合った。「あたしに指一本でも触れたら、 あんたたちのボスを殺しちゃうからね!」
“It’s fine you guys!” Ino…in the form of Garyo…faced towards the enemy shinobi. “If you guys touch me with even a finger, we’ll murder your boss!”
忍たちが、あとずさりした。
The shinobi stepped back.
「なにやってんのよ、シカマル……さっさと行きなさいよ!」
“What are you doing, Shikamaru?… Go quickly!”
「ああ……分かった」
“Ahh…I know”
なぜ、そんなことをしたのか、自分でも分からない。気がつけば、シカマルはいのの……我龍の尻をさっと撫でていた。
He did not understand why he was doing something like this himself. When he realized (what he was doing), Shikamaru had quickly and gently brushed the buttocks of Garyo……and Ino.
「キャッ」我龍が……我龍の姿をした、いのがぴょんっと跳び上がった。「なにすんのよ!?」
“Kyaa!” Garyo…and Ino (who was in Garyo’s body) sprung up with a ‘pyon’ sound. “What the heck are you doing!?”
「ずっと気になってたんだが……そんななりをしてても、やっぱ『キャッ』て言っちゃうんだな」
“I was always interested (/curious) about it…Whether or not (you would) even do such a thing (while you’re in the body of someone else). However, as I thought, you would still say『Kyaa 』, eh?”
シカマルの頭に、 いのの……我龍の拳骨を借りた、 いののパンチが,炸裂した。
Ino…borrowed Garyo’s fist. Ino’s punch exploded into Shikamaru’s head.
大混乱の鬼燈城のはるか西を流れる三つの星に気づいた者は、まだいなかった。
Still, no one had noticed three flowing objects to the far West that were emitting light, due to the chaos at Houzukijyou.
どこからどう見ても流れ星なのだが、普通の流れ星と違うのは、この三つの光る物体は空から落下してくるのではなく、逆にグングン上昇していることだった。
No matter how they viewed it, it looked like a shooting star from somewhere. However, they were different than ordinary shooting stars. Those three shining objects were not falling from the sky. On the contrary, they were steadily ascending.

[T/N]

Shikamaru just copped a feel on Ino/Garyo….for science!? Eh……[email protected][email protected]’;;;~~~I read this like three times to make sure I wasn’t going crazy when I first read this section OTL~ This is really strange for comic relief…
