Translation: Densetsu no Yuusha Da Garn, episode 41

In this episode, Seiji's dad is back, and he's awesome -- though not quite at maximum awesome overload just yet. There's still more to see, oh yes, so much more to see.


[Opening Theme]
Just as the wind rushes for the sky
I'm gonna take to the air, some day
I know I can, I believe in it
There's a power out there that the grown-ups have lost
And I'm gonna take it back, right now
I think that you can do it, too
Hey, I'm not very strong all by myself, either
But maybe, if we helped each other out...
We can fly! The Earth is our great ship!
Say, "Da Garn, stand tall!"
And head for the light of our endless future

SEIJI: My name's Takasugi Seiji, and I'm in 6th grade! I'm the commander of the Brave Fighters who protect the Earth!

SEIJI: It turns out Ohboss was really after the Power of Legend hidden here on Earth! Our only clue is something about 'make our feelings one with the planet'. That legend was passed down on Yanchar's home planet, but what exactly does it mean? Just thinking about it gives me a headache!

SEIJI: A bunch of crazy stuff happened, and we found the second Reservoir! Then, the GDO Army arrived! They found a Reservoir in Australia and now they want to work with us!

TITLE: Planet Ohboss Approaches

GENERAL: Planet Ohboss has started moving again. It's on a course directly for Earth. I think it's fair to say that there's no way our forces can destroy Planet Ohboss on their own.

TAKASUGI: I understand that. That is why I intend to arrange the full cooperation of the Da Garn robots with our army.

GENERAL: I'm counting on you, Colonel. You seem to have the greatest rapport with them, after all.

TAKASUGI: I believe there is no way we can make it through this crisis without their aid.

HIKARU: I never thought we'd be going all the way to Australia with our moving stuff in tow.

SEIJI: Me either! I can't believe dad called to ask for our full cooperation!

YANCHAR: And I never thought I'd be coming with you like this!

BUTCHO: Me either! I never thought there'd be a little kid inside Seven Changer, or that th' Pest I've been searching for all this time would turn out t' be you!

BUTCHO: I'm just th' lowest of the low.

SEIJI: A superhero can't let his identity out that easily!

BUTCHO: I know that! But if I'd only realized that you were th' kid eating lunch with me and stopping by to visit all the time, maybe I'd never have been split up this way.

HIKARU: No use crying over spilled milk. Learning that the amazing hero who saved me over and over would turn out to be Seiji... I'm not sure whether to laugh or cry.

SEIJI: What's that supposed to mean?

HIKARU: I wonder if your mom and dad have know about it.

SEIJI: Of course they don't. I haven't told them.

SEIJI: Speaking of which, my identity is top secret. Do NOT tell ANYONE.

HIKARU: Sure, if the next meal's on you.

HOTARU: The sky is... so red...

HIKARU: It really is. It's not even evening, it looks creepy...

SEIJI: I hope it's not a bad omen...

YANCHAR: Maybe it's because Planet Ohboss is drawing near.

HIKARU: Look! What is that?

SEIJI: What's that thing? Big Lander, do you know?

BIG: I'm still analyzing, boss. Huh? What the... it's a swarm of butterflies, boss!

SEIJI: Butterflies?

SEIJI: Woah!

HIKARU: I've read about this... there are some butterflies that migrate in large numbers.

YANCHAR: So where do the butterflies go?

SEIJI: How should I know?

HIKARU: It's almost like they're running from something.

YANCHAR: Look at this! Now it's a big swarm of fish!

SEIJI: Those are dolphins. But there sure are a lot of them.

HIKARU: It's like the animals are detecting some catastrophic event.

BUTCHO: What's going to become of us?

HOTARU: I don't know.

HIKARU: I wonder how mom and dad are doing.

MISUZU: Have you tried contacting the GDO Army?

NEMOTO: Of course I have! Not just the army, but the police in every jurisdiction around the country! But no one's seen any sign of them.

TSUKUSHI: Could the childrens' kidnapper be hiding them somewhere nearby?

HARUO: And what are they after?

MAID: My Lady's humble servant prays only for their safe return.

TSUKUSHI: I will answer it!


TSUKUSHI: Hikaru? Hikaru, you're okay!? Where are you? What? Australia? What store is that? Are you locked in? What? You're in the real Austrlia!?

MISUZU: Are Seiji and Yanchar there?

MAID: My Lady... is My Lady there!?

TSUKUSHI: Hello? What? Seiji, Yanchar, and Sakurakouji are there with you? Hello! Hikaru? Hello!?

HIKARU: Are you sure I should have cut her off?

SEIJI: It's fine! If we stayed on too long, we'd give away too much. They know we're okay, that should be enough to calm 'em down.

YANCHAR: You're pretty good at this weaselly stuff.

SEIJI: If I want your opinion, I'll ask for it!

BUTCHO: Excuse me m'dear, would you like to run away with me? There's no way we can fight against Ohboss.

HOTARU: Where?

HOTARU: No matter where we go, our fate will be the same.

BUTCHO: As simple as that, huh?

SEIJI: What are you scheming back there? I'll throw you off!

BUTCHO: Nothing! Weren't doing nothing!

TAKASUGI: General, look at that.

YANCHAR: Seiji, they came to meet us. Your dad might be in that helicopter.

SEIJI: Yanchar, this is the GDO. We absolutely can't let them know who we are.

YANCHAR: I see. Your dad doesn't know yet either.

BUTCHO: What do I do? I used t' be the enemy, after all.

SEIJI: Could you stay hidden? We can't afford the distraction.

BUTCHO: I'll do as you ask...

BUTCHO: But why are we going t' that big rock?

SEIJI: The army thinks they found a Reservoir near Ayer's Rock. They want me to investigate it.

BUTCHO: A Reservoir here!?

YANCHAR: The guy in the middle is your dad, right?

SEIJI: Yeah. He looks like he's doing good.

YANCHAR: He's pretty impressive. I hope you show him the proper respect.

SEIJI: That's none of your business!

YANCHAR: Just introduce him to me right.

SEIJI: I will!

TAKASUGI: It's been a while, commander. I'm grateful that you answered our request.

YANCHAR: I apologize for the trouble my vassal has caused you. Thank you for attending to him.

SEIJI: This is my partner, Colonel Takasugi. He controls Seven Changer here.

TAKASUGI: Ah, it's nice to have more allies we can count on.

TAKASUGI: Hikaru! What are you doing here!?

HIKARU: Oh, um, hello!

SEIJI: Ah, she's in protective custody! We saved her from rampaging aliens!

HIKARU: That's right! He took me under his protection.

TAKASUGI: Your parents in Japan are worried about you. Let me send you back to them.

HIKARU: Oh that's okay, Da Garn's commander already called my house and told them he'd be bringing me back, so...

TAKASUGI: Oh, that's good. Be careful on your way back.

HIKARU: Yes, sir!

SEIJI: Whew, that's one explanation down.

SEIJI: So we use this tunnel to get to the Reservoir?

TAKASUGI: We want to hide it from the enemy as much as possible.

YANCHAR: It doesn't matter what you do, Ohboss is going to find it!

TAKASUGI: You're saying this is all for nothing?

SEIJI: Yanchar is the last survivor of a planet destroyed by Ohboss.

TAKASUGI: Destroyed by Ohboss?

BUTCHO: Hey, m'dear. Let's run away, just you and me. Having a Reservoir here is gonna get us in big trouble. There's no way Ohboss won't come.

BUTCHO: He's going to come attack us! Let's run away while we still can!

HOTARU: I told you, our fate will be the same no matter where we go.

BUTCHO: That's ridiculous! Why d'you keep saying that!? It's dangerous t'stay here!

HIKARU: Then why don't run off yourself, then?

BUTCHO: Hey! That's cold!

HIKARU: Some man you are!

BUTCHO: I've got nothing more to say here!

SEIJI: Colonel, the enemy sent these things to Earth to look for Reservoirs. It's definitely picking up a heat signature.

TAKASUGI: So you're saying, this is a Reservoir -- one of the Earth's vital points.

SEIJI: Yeah. If they tap it, it'll open a huge fissure, breaking the Australian continent in two!

YANCHAR: That means Ohboss will definitely be coming after this place.

TAKASUGI: So we must protect this place at all costs.


YANCHAR: What is with these birds!?

SEIJI: They're not birds! They're bats!

TAKASUGI: This has never happened before...

YANCHAR: Yuck, get them off!

SEIJI: Is this more evidence of some big catastrophe drawing near?!


TAKASUGI: Did I earn your wris-spect?

GENERAL: I see. You're the last survivor of a planet destroyed by Ohboss? And the Ohboss planet is this one right here?

YANCHAR: Yeah, no mistake, that's the one. It showed up and started attacking our planet.

MAN: So you're saying that if we're not careful, our planet may end up the same way?

TAKASUGI: That's why we are asking for your full cooperation. Please help us. We want to work together to oppose Ohboss.

YANCHAR: I don't mind, but... I don't know if it'll work.

SEIJI: What do you mean, you don't know if it'll work?

YANCHAR: I like the thought of joining together to oppose him, but we still might not beat Ohboss even so.

MAN: Are you saying that even with the Da Garn robots' power, there might be no hope for the Earth?

YANCHAR: I'm not saying that, exactly...

SEIJI: You're thinking about the Power of Legend?

TAKASUGI: What is this Power of Legend?

SEIJI: It's a mysterious power hidden inside planets like Earth. If we can activate it, we might...

MAN: ... be able to defeat Ohboss?

SEIJI: Basically.

MAN: It's hard to believe. Have you any proof of this?

SEIJI: We have the words of the legend that were passed down. "Those who share your planet's fate. Make your feelings as one with the planet."

HOTARU: "Make your wishes as one with the planet. Let the golden light be gathered, that a new path shall open."

GENERAL: Hmm... "those who share your planet's fate," eh?

TAKASUGI: That means your planet probably had that Power of Legend too, didn't it? In that case, how was it destroyed?

YANCHAR: It was destroyed before we could activate it.

TAKASUGI: Before you could activate it?

SEIJI: Would you believe me if I said that Ohboss also wants to get his hands on that power?

GENERAL: Ohboss does?

MAN: He's getting away! Grab him!

MAN: Hey! Stop or I'll shoot!

BUTCHO: Stop it! Lemme alone!

SEIJI: Butcho!

MAN: Get them!

BUTCHO: I hate dogs! Help me!

BUTCHO: I'll teach you to underestimate me!

SEIJI: Wait a minute! Just wait a minute!

YANCHAR: You let the air out, too!

BUTCHO: You think I'm a balloon or something?

SEIJI: Were you trying to run away?

BUTCHO: What's the problem with that?

MAN: Please hand that man over to us.

SEIJI: Butcho?

MAN: That man has previously fought against us as an enemy. We can't let him run freely around the base.

BUTCHO: But I swear! I wasn't doing anything!

MAN: One more time. Hand that man over to us.

HOTARU: You can't!

HOTARU: Please, don't hand him over to them.

BUTCHO: Oh Hotaru dear, you're so kind t' me!

SEIJI: If Hotaru insists, that's how it'll be.

SEIJI: Sorry!

MAN: That was not a request. It was an order! If you don't hand him over, we'll take him by force!

SEIJI: What did you say!? We're not soldiers! You can't order us around!

YANCHAR: If that's how you're gonna act, maybe we won't help you at all!

GENERAL: Why won't you hand that man over to us? I was under the impression that he was our common enemy.

SEIJI: But the enemy's after him, now!

GENERAL: That's all the more reason to give him to us. This is our best chance to learn more about the enemy. We only just agreed to pool our resources to stand against Ohboss.

SEIJI: Yeah, we did.

GENERAL: Then we need to be able to speak honestly with each other.

GENERAL: I was hoping you'd take those helmets off and let us see what you really look like.

SEIJI: Oh, I can't! We told Da Garn we'd never reveal our true identities.

GENERAL: Why not?

SEIJI: Because the enemy's after us.

GENERAL: But we're your allies. Are you saying you can't even show your faces to your allies?

SEIJI: I don't think that matters.

YANCHAR: Yeah. We promised, so no!

GENERAL: The commanders won't show their faces. They won't hand over a former enemy. You're making a mockery of the GDO Army.

YANCHAR: Well we don't have to work with you at all, then.

SEIJI: Yeah, doesn't matter to me.

TAKASUGI: Wait a minute! What does that matter when the life of this planet is at stake? Do you really think this is behavior befitting your situation!?

TAKASUGI: The same goes for you, General. If they say they can't reveal their secret identities, why can't we simply accept that?

GENERAL: Colonel. You don't think a lack of trust between our parties will affect the course of our plans?

TAKASUGI: It won't affect the plan I'm thinking of.

GENERAL: What? Just what kind of plan is that?

TAKASUGI: Peace talks.

MAN: Peace talks!?

GENERAL: Doesn't that mean assuming our defeat!?

TAKASUGI: No. But if this comes down to all-out war, regardless of the final outcome, it will be ruinous to our planet. I want to convince the enemy to withdraw before that happens. And I want you two to see that fighting is not the only way to protecting this planet.

MAN: I wonder who you intend to send on these 'peace talks'?

TAKASUGI: If you will allow it, sir, I would like to go.


MAN: Are you that confident of success?

TAKASUGI: I won't know until I try. I just want to try everything I can before it comes to an all-out war. The first duty of an army is to PREVENT a fight!

SEIJI: The first duty of an army is to prevent a fight? Man, my dad is so amazing!

MAN: Look at that! It's Planet Ohboss!

MAN: Planet Ohboss is here!

BUTCHO: Oh no, oh no... he's finally here!

MAN: It's the enemy!

SEIJI: Yanchar! Hurry!

SEIJI: Da Garn! Shoot down that saucer!

DAGARN: Yes sir! G Cannon! G Vulcan!

SEIJI: Big Lander! Take care of the others!

BIG: Got it, boss! I'll take them to safety!

TAKASUGI: You men get to the shelter.

GENERAL: What about you, Colonel?

TAKASUGI: I'll meet up with you later.

SEIJI: Da Garn! They're after my dad!

DAGARN: Colonel! Take shelter inside of me.

DAGARN: Who are you?

CYAN: I am Cyan. Lord Ohboss has ordered me to escort you to him.

DAGARN: What!?

SEIJI: Da Garn, what's going on!?

DAGARN: One of Ohboss's subordinates is attempting to abscond with me.

SEIJI: What!? Colonel, get out of here while you can!

SEIJI: Seven Changer!

TAKASUGI: This is my chance to speak with Ohboss. Let me be taken to him along with Da Garn.

SEIJI: Colonel...

TAKASUGI: But there's no reason to put you in danger, too. You should get out of here.

SEIJI: No way! Da Garn, don't fight him! Let him take us back to Planet Ohboss!

DAGARN: Yes, sir!

SEVEN: Da Garn! I'll save you!

SEVEN: Blast it...

[Ending Theme]
Walking barefoot through the jungle
I flipped a switch
And all the giraffes and pretty girls
Linked arms in a dance routine
All the rules and manners my mother taught me...
Wah ha ha, blown away!
This is a paradise of the heart, not the head
Tomorrow will surely be 'hallelujah!'
So you've got to keep on winning
The sky and the sea are 'papaya!'
And I'll always love you

SEIJI: We're finally breaking into the enemy base! Ohboss is somewhere inside this huge planet. But dad's being a huge flake as usual! These peace talks are never gonna work! Hey! Where's this gross laughter coming from!? Are you saying... THIS is Ohboss!?

SEIJI: Next time, on Brave Fighter of Legend, Da Garn! Emerge, Power of Legend! I'm the commander, here!


  1. hey, appreciate the translated da garn scripts! When are the last few coming out?

  2. Kou~~! Gunlord here, just wanted to let you know I've pre-timed 42-45 for you. I'll be done with 46 soon too. :D
