Memory Records Of Bastard Magic Instructor 2 (Short Stories)

Translations are…translations. Duh.

For stuff we want to hack apart into English. (Until an official release happens or something. Whenever that is. ._.)

Also, this is a side gig. DO NOT expect constant updates for this sort of thing. We’re not a translation site.

We do this for fun. And if we’re free. 🥖


DISCLAIMER

The following short stories are NOT chapters from the Memory Records light novels.

These are just the illustrated shorts with a short story attached to it.

You can literally read them for free over at Bookwalker. (See the link below.)


Author’s Note

Interestingly, all 3 of these short stories are like ‘linked’ with one another. Granted, they can also be very standalone, but it’s interesting that reading through them in order creates a kind of convenient connection based on what each story is talking about. We’d recommend giving all 3 stories a go in ascending order to see what we mean. (☞゚ヮ゚)☞

Also, they’re also somewhat related to the cover page of this volume, you can check it out over at the wiki here.

Volume 2/Short Story 1

Translation

The time spent together flows calmly today.

On their usual way back from the Academy, Sistine, Rumia and Re=L were casually visiting one shop after another…

“While I’m doing this, it reminds me of…”

A sudden whisper came out naturally.

What comes to her heart is the scene of when she first met Glenn in the classroom.

She still remembered that event.

“So, today’s class will be a self-study period.” (Note: This is THE EXACT SAME LINE from the anime.)

That said, Glenn fell asleep after declaring his first class on the first day of his job a self-study period.

The duel and quarrels that followed. An intense person like Glenn will never appear before Sistine again in their first encounter.

But, it wasn’t all that bad…

“…at first, he’s not good but…now that I think about it…everyone’s more familiar with magic…I’m having wonderful classes…and actually, everyone is more passionate.”

Then, Sistine glanced next to her, where Rumia and Re=L were.

Of course, it’s Glenn…that brought about such a normal daily life.

“Fate is strange with people.”

Sistine smiled before her irreplaceable friends in her daily life.


Transcript

今日も三人で過ごす、穏やかな時間が流れる。

学院からの帰り道。いつものとうに、システィーナがルミア、リィエルと一緒に色んな店そ回って楽しく遊び歩いていると。。。。。。

“こうしていると、なんだか思い出しちゃぅわね。。。。。。”

ふと、そんな呟きが、自然とロを突いて出た。

その胸に去来するは、まだグレンと出会ったばかりの頃の教室の情景だ。

あの時のことは、未だに忘れもしない。

“えー、本日の一限目の授業は自習にしまーす。”

そう言って、講師着任初日の授業を、本当に自習にして、居眠りを始ぬてしまったグレン。

その後に続いた決闘騷動。大暄曄。初対面でグレンほど強烈に印象に焼き付くとうな人物は、システィーナの人生にはもう二度と現れないだろう。

だが、それは悪いことばかりだったわけでは決してなくて—

“。。。。。。一見、ロクでなしだけど。。。。。。本当は誰とりも魔術に詳しくて。。。。。。素晴らしい授業ができて。。。。。。冷ぬたひねくれ者かと思えば。。。。。。本当は誰とりも熱くて。”

それて、システィーナはちらりと隣を見ると、そこには、ルミアとリィエルが当たり前のとうにいる。

こんな当たり前の日常をもたらしてくれたのも。。。。。。やっぱり、グレンなのだ。

“人の縁って不思議なものね。”

かけがえのない友人達の、なんでもない日常の姿を前に、システィーナはくすりと微笑むのであった。


Volume 2/Short Story 2

Translation

Rumia casually looks ahead…

“Ah jeez Re=L…ah right, would you like to eat some ice cream too?”

“…Mmm, eat….cold.”

The appearance of her close friends, Sistine and Re=L.

“I ended up forgetting.”

Then, in Rumia’s mind, the first time she met Re=L…the scene of the Magic Competition, came to her.

There were many things about her mother, Re=L, the Researchers of Divine Wisdom and so on. It was also dangerous.

However, even so…

“…it was fun after all.”

For Rumia, that was the case.

They all worked together towards a common goal…with that sense of irreplaceable unity.  

Closing her eyes to look back at that time…she could still feel the passion from those days return to her body.

“…all thanks to the Professor.”

Having all students of the class participate in the Magic Competition.

Which led her to worry about her mother.

Even then, she put her life at stake while being protected.

Now, it remains an irreplaceable lifelong memory.

“Rumia! What’s wrong? If you don’t come soon we’ll leave without you!”

“…ah, wait up Sisti.”

Rumia smilingly followed Sistine, pulling back the consciousness that had drifted into the past…

ルミアが、ふと前そ見れば。。。。。。

“あはは、もうリィエルったら。。。。。。。あ、そうだ、貴女もこのアイス食べてみる?。”

“。。。。。。ん、食べる。。。。。。。冷たい。”

そこには仲睦もじいシスティーナとリィエルの姿。

“なんだか思い出しちゃうな。”

すると、ルミアの脳裏に、リィエルと初めて会った時のこと。。。。。。魔術競技祭の情景が浮かんだ。

母親のこと、リィエルのこと、天の智慧研究会のこと、色んなことがあった。危ないこともあった。

だけど。それでも。。。。。。

“。。。。。。やっぱり、楽しかったな。”

ルミアにとって、それだけは間違いなかった。

一つの目標に向かって、皆で一丸となって、立ち向かう。。。。。。あの一体感は、かけがえのないものだ。

ほんの少し目をつむって、当時そ振り返るだけで。。。。。。あの頃の熱が、この身体に蘇ってくるとうだ。

“。。。。。。先生のおかげだね。”

クラスの生徒全員を、競技に参加させてくれたこと。

母親のことで悩む私を、導いてくれたこと。

そして—命がけで、守ってくれたこと。

今となってはかけがえのない、一生の思い出だ。

“ルミア—つ!どうしたの?早く来ないと置いて行っちゃうわよ—っ!”

“。。。。。。あ、待ってと、システィ。”

過去そ漂っていた意識を、現在に引き戻し、ルミアは笑いながら、システィーナ達の後を追う。。。。。。


Volume 2/Short Story 3

Translation

At the end of the day, the three girls went to their usual cafe.

“Fu…I’m a little tired.”

“Fufu…hey, Re=L. What if you got cream on your cheeks?”

Re=L made a vague expression, while Rumia gently wipes the edge of her mouth with a handkerchief.

“…what’s wrong, Re=L?”

Re=L stared silently at Sistine and Rumia, as Sistine tilted her head.

“Hmm…nothing.”

It’s the events of the Field Study Expedition that came to Re=L’s tiny chest. During that affair, she did something terrible to Sistine and Rumia, so it’s not strange for these two people to dislike it.

Yet, the two remained by her side.

Which made Re=L very happy.

“…thank you, Glenn.”

A mutter of gratitude slipped out for the person who brought her back to this bright world.

“Re=L?”

“Nothing. That aside…do you both want…a strawberry tart?”

“What, what happened? You suddenly…”

“Re=L wants to share a strawberry tart…”

“…separately. Somehow.”

Re=L muttered such a thing with her usual sleepy emotionless expression.

今日の終わりに、三人娘達はいつものカフェへ。

“ふぅ。。。。。。ちょっと疲れちゃったわね。”

“ふふっ。。。。。。ほら、リィエル。ほっぺにクリームがついてると?”

リィエルは、ぼ~っとした表情で、ハンカチで口の端をそっと拭ってくれるルミアのされるがままだ。

“。。。。。。どうしたの?リィエル。”

システィーナとルミアの二人をじっと無言で見つめるリィエルに、システィーナが小首を傾げる。

“ん。。。。。。なんでもない。”

そんなリィエルの小さな胸に去来するのは、いつかの遠征学修での出来事だ。あの一件で、自分はシスティーナとルミアに、酷いことをしてしもった。ニ人に嫌われていても、まったくおかしくない。

なのに—ニ人はこうして、自分の傍にいてくれる。

それが、リィエルにはとても嬉しかった。

“。。。。。。ありがとう、グレン。”

こんな自分そ日向の世界に手を引いて連れ戻してくれた人へ、ぽつりと感謝の呟きが思わず漏れる。

“リィエル?”

“なんでもない。それより。。。。。。ニ人とも。。。。。。苺タルトいる?”

“ど、どうしたの?突然。。。。。。”

“リィエルが苺タルトを分けてくれるなんて。。。。。。”

“。。。。。。別に。なんとなく。”

ぼそりと、いつものように眠たげな無表情で、そんなことを呟くリィエルであった。

End Transmission.


Afterword

Thanks for checking out the translations. Also a few things to note.

The Translations may not be 100% accurate. We’re using a lot of improvisation to get the gist of what the paragraph’s trying to convey. As such, the transcript’s free for folks to pickup and double check if they want to.

Again. DO NOT expect regular updates for this. We’re busy with other stuff. D:


Also. Check out the following places for more on this series.

And the other volumes translated here too. :0
