The Rose Colored Days was a short story written for the volume 3 special edition by Japanese writer Koujou Yutaka. It was originally translated by drug-holic on LiveJournal over eight years ago. Unfortunately, the original translator has disappeared from the internet and I have been unable to track them down.
While working on my archiving project, I stumbled upon this translation again and have decided to publish it. I’ve done a bit of editing for clarity and grammar’s sake, but haven’t changed much.
This is a story about Soubi between Seimei’s death and meeting Ritsuka. The story is written in a very blunt, short way and the translator notes that the language used by Soubi (the narrator) is very simple due to him being extremely depressed at the time. The translator also notes that he also ‘doesn’t care about life’.
Below is the text for it, but the document with my notes and the translator’s original notes can also be viewed here on my archiving drive.
