Translation: “Ao no Exorcist” Chapter 91 Translation Summary (SPOILERS!!)
So here is a rough translation summary of Chapter 91. This chapter…wow, shit really hit the fan. It’s been a long time coming, but there’s really no going back now, I think. Anyway, please forgive any typos or mistakes. And spoilers, of course.
Ao no Exorcist 91
This chapter is entitled “Longevity (or Felicitations) - Late Night to Early Morning”
Preparations for the wedding are underway. Sugaro recites a sutra and then helps his father get ready. His father comments that it’s been a long time since they had a wedding there and that he would hold onto the day ‘tightly’. He tells Suguro that he has the appearance of an ‘unsheathed sword’ since he became Lightning’s apprentice. Sugaro is surprised he knew, but Tatsuma says he learned it from Shima’s son (we see a little graphic of the Shimas going crazy over finding out). Sugaro starts to bring up something about Shirou Fujimoto, but thinks better of it and says “nevermind”…just at that moment, Yukio comes in and says that the landlady is calling for him. He starts to say that he’s with his father right now, but then Gouzou says he’ll take over for Sugaro. Tatsuma thanks Gouzou and Gouzou says after the ceremony is over, he would return back to work and mentions the “matter just now”. Tatsuma asks him if they were able to capture something after that, but he replies no, and that they are investigating the underground library at the Endo branch HQ but that they haven’t found a way to forcibly summon Karura when it possesses a person. He says that Karura can adapt to a body, and concludes that they may not be able to exorcise Karura when the time comes. Tatsuma asks him to continue looking into it.
Sugaro joins everyone in the main hall and sits down next to Yukio. Yukio asks him where everyone else is and he replies that he doesn’t know. Yukio replies that he was told to sit there, and Sugaro says that’s because he is their teacher. Suddenly Yukio asks Sugaro what he knows about their father and what Lightning is investigating.
It skips over to Bucharest, Romania, where a man is getting into a car. He hears “Happy New Year, Dr. Dragresk” just as Lightning punches him in the face. He knows who Lightning is by his reaction, and Lightning says “I was waiting for you to go to work alone, you’re the type of person who goes to work early on New Year’s…so am I”. Lightning says he’s connected with the Illuminati. Dragresk asks him if he’s serious, but Lightning replies “You’re going to keep up that act?” Dragresk tries to deny it further, asking Lightning how he could be connected to the Illuminati. Lightning says “if I can figure that mystery out, it’ll be perfect…and anyway, you are very close to the image of the traitor that I had in my mind.” Lightning continues, “There’s no doubt that a person who keeps killing people for more than ten years would continue such a job.” Lightning then starts attacking Dragresk, and asks him “Do you know my other popular name? ‘Head Torturer’…” Dragresk screams “Stop!!” and then we see that there’s a mark across Dragresk’s neck. Lightning says “I knew it, it’s just like I thought.” Then he says “I’m going home, I accomplished my mission”. Dragresk is stunned that Lightning would do something like that and then stop. He yells that he will report him to the top brass, and that Lightning is in danger. Lightning says “Then I’d better hurry, I’ll report you, as well.”
Back at the wedding, Yukio is explaining that an old man named Misumi died immediately after Lightning came to visit the monastery. He asks Sugaro if there’s any connection, and Sugaro says he can’t talk about it. Suddenly Yukio looks normal again and says “I’m sorry for trying to get you to talk against your will. It’s obvious that you can’t talk about the contents of a secretive investigation at a moment’s notice.” Just then Rin and the others arrive and the ceremony begins. We see the wedding and then get to the party afterwards. Suddenly Sugaro gets a call so he takes it outside while Yukio looks at him suspiciously. It’s from Lightning, and he wants Sugaro to come back the next morning.
Suddenly Yukio comes up from behind Sugaro and points a gun at his chin. He says “Excuse me, please tell me about the birth of my brother and me.” Sugaro is shocked, and Yukio asks him what he knows and to ‘please’ tell him (the most unsettling part is how polite he’s being here, honestly). Sugaro thinks “What kind of face is that?” and asks Yukio “Are you going to shoot me…!?” Yukio looks shocked, then looks a bit crazy. He says “What am I doing…” and then says “I’m sorry, I made a mistake…it might be the alcohol. Please forget it” and walks off. Sugaro grabs him from behind and starts yelling at him (I mean, who wouldn’t?). Yukio says “I’m sorry” again, but Sugaro isn’t having any of it. Then Yukio says (with a creepy smile) “I’m your superior, please let me go.” Sugaro does, but he still looks shocked. Yukio keeps walking until Renzou stops him and says “You need to cut this out.” He then tells Yukio to discuss it. Yukio asks “Discuss…with whom? Sugaro? You? My brother? PUHA HA!” “Discussing it won’t lead to a resolution. Because I’m different from everyone.”
Yukio gets a call from Shura, telling him and the ex-wires to come back immediately, and to turn on the tv. Renzou asks him what’s going on, and they join everyone watching something on the tv (btw, Rin gives Yukio a very knowing look when he walks in here). On tv, there’s a cyclops attacking a train station.
That’s it for this month.
