T/L Notes: 
  • The reason Souma brings up Keito is because the line of ‘pleading for your enemy to show you mercy’ literally refers to the act of offering salt to the Gods as salt was a highly valuable commodity back in the old days, and this display was meant to induce pity and beckon fortune. Keito is from a Buddhist temple, so he would know of this 'practice'.

T/L Notes: 
“Chest” is a shout that Samurai back in the day used when engaging in battle with one another. You can think of it as ‘En garde’, ‘Here I come’, ‘Prepare yourself’ etc. It signals that you’re ready to clash and that there’s nothing else on your mind. Previously, I’ve translated this depending on the context Souma uses it in, but since this whole story is about his katana, I decided to leave it as it is here.
“Jigen-Ryu” is a martial arts school focusing mainly on swordsmanship.
“arubaito” means part-time job.
“Sexagenery Cycle” is an old East-Asian calendar for counting time periods. You’ll be more familiar with its use in the Chinese Zodiac. Apparently, even Souma’s choice of hyperbole is archaic. Bless.
I took liberty when translating over “I failed not once, but twice”. The phrase is “abuhachi torazu” where you try to do two things at the same time and end up accomplishing neither. The English equivalent would be “between two stools you fall to the ground”.

Location: Marine Life clubroom

Summary:
Souma thinks of a way to convince Kanata to participate in the athletics program.

Links: Enstar Wiki 

T/L Notes: 
  • Kanata’s speech is left (somewhat) unpunctuated and all in lowercase to imitate the similar feeling when reading his story in Japanese. He speaks without the use of kanji and very slowly… Reading this can distract the eyes and it ends up taking much longer to get through his lines than you'd think…

T/L Notes: 
  • When Souma mentions how he wants them to participate to “refresh themselves”, the exact word he uses is “hashi yasume”, which literally translates over to “resting your chopsticks” or in the English equivalent, “entremets”. This is a dish that you eat in-between meals as a sort of ‘breather’ or a ‘break’ from the main course. Souma uses these terms and phrases casually because his character enjoys cooking. I only carried over the meaning, but this translation note is for your benefit (the more you know~)
