Japanese Script with Furigana and English Translation

無理むりだ…。みずから*メスをてるような人間にんげんに…ふたたしゅじゅつしつかくなどない…。もう…おれしんじるのはやめてくれ…。」「いやです!失望しつぼうしたくありません。先生せんせい永大えいだい先生せんせいたちとはちがう…。そうおもったから ぼく先生せんせいしんじました。本当ほんとう患者かんじゃさんのことかんがえてるんだとおもったから…。これが現実げんじつなら…ぼくしゃになんかなりたくない…。先生せんせいまで患者かんじゃさんをてるなら…ぼくしゃになんてなりたくない!」「がっことばかりうな。いくら患者かんじゃのためとはいえ…」

“Impossible… A surgeon who’d choose to toss the scalpel aside… has no right to set foot in the OR… Please… stop relying on me.” “I won’t. I don’t want to be disappointed. You’re not like the doctors at Eiroku… That’s why I trusted you. Because I thought you put the patient first… But if this is what it’s like, then I don’t want to be a doctor. If someone like you can abandon a patient, then I don’t want to be a doctor. If someone like you can abandon a patient, then I don’t want to be a doctor!” “Stop being so selfish… even if it is all about the patient…”

One Point Lesson: Japanese Expression

「みずから」 is a formal word and means “I” and “myself.” This can indicate your voluntary will.

 

患者かんじゃのため…?そうだ…このおとこ患者かんじゃのためにうごいている…がっなのは…おれほうだ。)

(The patient? That’s right… He’s doing all this for his patient. The selfish one here… is ME.)

斉藤さいとう先生せんせいおれはまだメスをてると本当ほんとうしんじていいんだな…?だがな、いくらアンタがおれ信用しんようしても…心臓しんぞうってやつは*しゃうらることもあるんだぜ。」

“Dr. Saito… Are you sure you want to believe I can pick up the scalpel again? Still, no matter how much you trust in me… The human heart has double-crossed many a surgeon.”

One Point Lesson: Japanese Expression

The difference between 「心臓しんぞうってやつは」 and 「心臓しんぞうは」 is almost nothing in terms of the meaning. However, by describing a human heart like animated things, you can emphasize how uncertain it is.  

 

斉藤さいとう先生せんせいわたしだってきた先生せんせいふたたびメスを姿すがたたい。だが…りょうはギャンブルじゃない。まんいちがあったら、わたし絶対ぜったいゆるさないよ…。」

“Dr. Saito. I’d like to see Dr. Kita in the OR, too. But… medicine isn’t a game of chance. If anything happened, I’d never forgive you.”

「これでオレはねむっちまって…そのまましゅじゅつだいにのせられるワケだな…。ありがとう、先生せんせい…オレのわがままにってくれてよ…。*かんがえてみりゃよ…オレとおなびょうひとは、ほんじゅうなんびゃく万人まんにんっているんだろ?そのうち何人なんにんぶん信頼しんらいできるしゃ出会であえるのかな…?いいしゃえるかどうか…それですべてがまっちまうんだな…。」

“So now it’s off to dreamland… where I’ll stay while I’m on the table. Thanks, Doc. Thanks for putting up with my selfishness. When you think about it… There must be millions of people with this condition throughout Japan. How many of them were lucky enough to find a doctor they can trust? Yep, finding a good doctor… Everything hinges on that, doesn’t it.”

One Point Lesson: Japanese Expression

This is an expression technique. The sentence should have been like this 「オレのわがままにってくれてありがとう」. By making the order opposite, he emphasizes his appreciation.

信頼しんらいできないしゃがいることたい問題もんだいなんです…。」「オレはもう満足まんぞくだよ。たとえしゅじゅつ失敗しっぱいしたとしたって…オレはアンタに出会であえたんだからな…。」「ちがう…きなきゃ意味いみなんかないんだ…。」「またえるよな…?先生せんせい…。」「当然とうぜんです…。」

“The existence of untrust-worthy doctors is a problem in itself.” “Ah, I’m satisfied. Even if the surgery is a failure… I’m just glad I met you.” “No… You have to live, or all this means nothing.” “See you later, Doc?” “Of course…”

ひさしぶりだな…。またよろしくたのむよ…。」「しゅじゅつをはじめます…。」

“Long time no see… Ready to do this? ” “Let’s begin.”

おのれに…て…。心臓しんぞうしゅじゅつのオペしつ…ここはなにこるかからないしょ…。

(Control yourself… The cardiac OR: What happens inside is a mystery.)
