Charanko, LearningEdit

Audio Part 1

Audio Part 2

Translated the One Punch Man Maji Drama CD Vol. 4, titled ‘Charanko, Learning’. The event is presumed to be taking place sometime after Garou began his hero hunt, but before Garou fought Tank Top Vegetarian.

Sound of punches and kicks

Garou: Huff…huff…damn you geezer!

BANG: You’re no longer welcome at my dojo, Garou

Sound of punch

CHARANKO: It’s been 6 months since that incident

BANG: Water Stream Rock Smashing Fist

SITCH: wow

CHARANKO: As one would expect from Master Bang!

CHARANKO: My name is Charanko

CHARANKO: I am Master Bang’s top disciple in this dojo

CHARANKO: Where he teaches Water Stream Rock Smashing Fist

CHARANKO: Today we are having guests from the Hero Association, which almost never happens

CHARANKO: First, an officer from the Association, a man named Sitch

SITCH: Wonderful, even as a layman

SITCH: I can understand the efficiency of your movements, and appreciate their beauty

SITCH: You’re amazing, Silver Fang! Right you guys?

GUY A: Oh really?

GUY B: Well, I guess it’s cool if you’re into gymnastics

GUY C: Looks slow as molasses, if you could defeat monsters with this we wouldn’t need to train so hard

CHARANKO: …and then there are these jerkoffs, who are Tank Top Master’s lackeys

BANG: Oh? You brought some real pompous kids here, right Sitch?

SITCH: How dare you guys!

SITCH: The S-Class hero is demonstrating his moves just for you, show some gratitude and give your best efforts to learn!

SITCH: Why do you think we’re here at Silver Fang’s Dojo in the first place!

GUY A: Tank Top Master is our only master.

GUY B: That’s right, here’s the bottom line: no tank top, no dice.

GUY C: Mm, we’ll become stronger as long as we focus on developing physiques and exercises that are compatible with tank tops

GUY C: That’s what Tank Top Master told us, and he is never wrong

SITCH: Tank Top Master is the reason why I brought you guy here

SITCH: He wanted you to experience martial arts as well

SITCH: Are you going to say something, Tank Top Master?

TTM: You lot, that was very rude to Silver Fang

TTM: Treat seniors with some respect

TTM: How can you call yourselves Tank Toppers while acting like this?

CHARANKO: This is Tank Top Master

CHARANKO: His behavior would indicate that he’s somewhat of a special case

BANG: It’s okay, don’t sweat it. We all take different paths towards greater strength.

BANG: What about you, Metal Bat?

METAL BAT: This metal bat is all I need

METAL BAT: I’m not interested in stuff like martial arts.

METAL BAT: I only promised Sitch that I’d come to see what’s up so he would stop nagging me

CHARANKO: This kid who looks like he belongs in a biker gang appears to be a hero called Metal Bat

CHARANKO: Is this what heroes look like?

SITCH: That’s because you’re only 17 years old and have exceptional athletic abilities

SITCH: You’re wasting away your potentials if you keep swinging your bat like a brawler in every fight

SITCH: I wanted to bring you here so you could learn to use your body to its maximum potential

METAL BAT: I really can’t be bothered, plus I’ve never lost, that’s good enough isn’t it?

METAL BAT: Hey, what if I beat Silver Fang right here, will you acknowledge my abilities?

BANG: Oh, now that sounds interesting, want to give it a go?

SITCH: Eh…wait a second you two! There’s no need to get serious!

BANG: Worry not, I won’t hurt him

METAL BAT: You should worry about yourself, old man. Even though I never said I was serious…

BANG: That’s okay, just use your bat, make sure you aim straight, don’t miss

METAL BAT: Hmph, is this part of the martial arts experience, Sitch?

SITCH: Don’t tell me I didn’t try to stop this, Silver Fang

BANG: Alright, bring it on, kiddo!

METAL BAT: Hyaaa!

  • Sound of metal bat swinging*

BANG: What’s the matter? Where’s your aim?

METAL BAT: Arrghh!

  • More grunting/swinging sounds from Metal Bat*

SITCH: Un…unbelievable! They’re all near misses

CHARANKO: Duh! Attacks like that will never touch Master Bang!

METAL BAT: Running is the same as losing! Haaa!

  • Loud explosion*

PEOPLE IN DOJO: WOW

BANG: Oh, I only deflected half the power in that hit and it still blew away the wall, that’s quite a powerful attack!

METAL BAT: Wha…what was that just now?!

METAL BAT: One more time! Let me try again!

BANG: Fine by me, do your best!

GUY ?: Th...this is incredible! I’ve never seen people fly before!

GUY ?: No question about that, I thought only Tank Top Master could do something like this

CHARANKO: Hehehehe, what a bunch of fools, just look at the surprise on their faces

TTM: I see…so that’s the principle behind Silver Fang’s style

GUY ?: Eh? No way, Master, have you seen through that move!?

TTM: Ah, undoubtedly so, Silver Fang must be…

GUY ?: gulp

TTM: …wearing a tank top underneath!

CHARANKO: wh…what?!

GUY ?: Is that so!

GUY ?: That’s what I thought!

CHARANKO: Don’t just accept that as fact!

SITCH: Looks like bringing the Tank Top army here was a complete waste of time

SITCH: Well, this will be a good learning experience for Metal Bat at least, which reminds me…

SITCH: This is such a rare opportunity, and you’d rather sleep in the corner than watch the action…are you sure about that, Watchdog Man?

CHARANKO: ….ah that’s right, there’s one last hero I forgot to mention. He hasn’t said a single word so far…

CHARANKO: I guess that’s Watchdog Man

WATCHDOG MAN: Eh…that was really loud, our time is almost up, I’m going home

SITCH: Hold on a minute, you haven’t done anything

WATCHDOG MAN: Walks have time limits

  • Sound of Watchdog Man running away*

CHARANKO: There are so many weirdos…

METAL BAT: Huff…huff…damn it, again!

BANG: That’s fine by me, but your phone has been vibrating for a while

METAL BAT: What!? Argh, you’re right! So you noticed it even though I put it on vibration! Not bad, old man!

METAL BAT: crap! It’s from my sister! This is bad, it’s almost time to pick her up from her piano lesson!

BANG: So…shall we call this a draw?

METAL BAT: Pfft, what an annoying old man, I’ll come for my revenge, bank on it!

TTM: Oh, are we dismissed, Sitch?

SITCH: Looks like it, not like I have a choice

SITCH: I expected a lot more out of this

BANG: Hey Sitch, don’t forget our terms

SITCH: I know, in exchange for training at your dojo, Silver Fang’s disciple gets to learn from S-Class heroes

SITCH: Of course, I have received permission from the Hero Association, but Watchdog Man is gone, and Metal Bat seems to have some rather important matters to attend to

BANG: Hey, are you listening, Charanko?

CHARANKO: Yes! I’m right here!

BANG: Follow those three S-Class heroes to the scenes of their activities and see what you can learn from them

BANG: You’re not a hero…and you’ve probably never witnessed them in battle against monsters where they put their lives on the line

CHARANKO: Putting their lives on the line…that’s right!

BANG: Watchdog Man is the guardian of Q-City, keep going down that street, you should run into him

TTM: As far as we’re concerned, you will be very welcome at our Tank Top gathering

BANG: That’s it, now go along with Metal Bat, Charanko

CHARANKO: Eh…yes!

CHARANKO: Mr. Metal Bat, pleased to meet…

METAL BAT: Huh? Is that so? So Sitch added this extra condition?

METAL BAT: Whatever, I’m about to start running, keep up!

CHARANKO: Eh? No trains or taxis?

METAL BAT: Huh? Of course not!

CHARANKO: Eh…sorry I asked

CHARANKO: I’ve never had the experience of being scolded by someone younger than I am

METAL BAT: Let’s go! Haaaaa!

CHARANKO: Wait for me!

  • Running sound*

CHARANKO: Huff…huff…Sitch wasn’t kidding with the athletic abilities, I’m falling far behind, but there are no emergencies right now, isn’t he just going to pick up his sister?

CHARANKO: Ah…at this rate, I’m not going to learn anything…

MONSTER: Muhahahaha

MONSTER: I’m a monster that’s just passing by, Cannon Fodder (やられ役)!

CHARANKO: It’s a monster!

CHARANKO: Great! I’m going to observe his battle with the monster carefully and try to learn as much as I can.

MONSTER: Get ready to die Metal Bat, you bastard! Once I beat you, I’ll be promoted to the main cast…

METAL BAT: OUTTA MY WAY!! AH!

  • Sound of impact*

CHARANKO: Insta…kill! I didn’t see anything! If it keeps going like this, I’ll…

CHARANKO: Wait, please wait!

METAL BAT: Huh?

CHARANKO: Pant…pant…just now…the monster…how did you…

METAL BAT: What? Didn’t you see what I did?

CHARANKO: I was kinda far away and… it was over in an instant

METAL BAT: well, first I was like PEW, and then I was like BANG

CHARANKO: Eh…I’m sorry, about that, could you maybe elaborate…

METAL BAT: As I was saying, the monster was right there, and I was like PEW, and then BANG, and then JIU, and then GONG, got it?

CHARANKO: Argh this guy, I can’t even…I’m just wasting my time

METAL BAT: Whoa, look at the time! Crap! I’m so late!

  • Sound of explosion*

CHARANKO: This can’t be helped, I should go check out Watchdog Man. Didn’t they say I’ll see him in Q-City?

  • Sound of train*

CHARANKO: So this is Q-City, I heard there’s a plaza in his name near the train station

CHARANKO: Look, there it is!

CHARANKO: Argh, I tripped on something…

CHARANKO: Eh? What is this liquid!? And what’s with all these chunks of flesh-looking stuff scattered about?

WOMAN: Excuse me sir, do you mind stepping aside? I need to clean this up.

CHARANKO: eh? Ah…yes.

  • Sound of vacuum*

CHARANKO: Em, what’s this stuff that you’re cleaning?

WOMAN: monster body parts

CHARANKO: Right…what? Monsters!? The monsters are here?

WOMAN: That’s right, Watchdog Man tears them apart, their body parts end up falling everywhere, so we come to clean them up.

WOMAN: What’s the matter? This happens all the time.

WOMAN: See all those people gathered over there across the street? On top of that tall platform, that’s where you’ll find Watchdog Man. He’s always there, protecting our city.

CHARANKO: Is…that so, looks like I missed the action

WOMAN: There’re lots of monsters lately, if you stay near the plaza, you might be able to catch Watchdog Man move a little

WOMAN: That said, it usually lasts only a few seconds

WOMAN: The monsters are usually scattered everywhere before we could even realize what’s happening

CHARANKO: I see…Master Bang, S-Class heroes can’t be used as reference at all!

CHARANKO: Eh…I think I’m at the right place, this should where the Tank Top army holds their meetings

  • Sound of knocks on a door*

GUY: Hm? Someone is here

CHARANKO: Hi, nice to meet you, I’m Charanko, I’m here to experience a hero’s battle first hand

GUY: Master, we have someone who wishes to partake in the Tank Top experience!

TTM: You’re finally here, Charanko

TTM: First of all, put on this tank top. Your master Silver Fang should be wearing one too

TTM: This one is made by me, and it’s being sold by the Hero’s Association as part of the official merchandise lineup.

CHARANKO: I don’t really think he’s wearing one but… there, I put it on

TTM: We occasionally hold Tank Top meetings like this to discuss how we can improve ourselves and become more deserving of our tank tops

CHARANKO: ah, is that so

Sound of siren

ANNOUNCER: Emergency shelter alert, Disaster Level: Demon

TTM: Looks like a monster occurrence. Everybody, let’s go!

Tank Topper Army: Roger!

CHARANKO: Great! This time I’ll finally learn something!

GUY: Found it! Looks like the monster is over there!

TTM: Good, let’s take it out!

Battle sound

TTM: What do you think, Charanko, do you get it now?

CHARANKO: I guess…muscles + numbers = combat prowess?

TTM: No, that’s not it! It’s tank top equals strength! That’s what I’m talking about

TTM: Especially for someone like me, who is able to unleash the power of tank tops to the extreme

TTM: I possess more tank top power than the rest of my group combined

CHARANKO: Is…is that so…

TTM: Have you learned anything from this experience?

CHARANKO: To be honest, not really. But I feel I can rely on you guys. Regardless of personality quirks, the heroes I’ve met today are all ridiculously powerful

CHARANKO: As long as you are around, we won’t have to fear any monster

CHARANKO: Even that scary senpai is nothing compared to S-Class heroes

TTM: Scary senpai? Aren’t you Silver Fang’s only disciple?

CHARANKO: Eh…well, it’s complicated

FLASHBACK BEGINS

Garou: Come here, now you’re my sparring partner

CHARANKO: Nnnnnno way! I’m only a white belt!

Garou: Huh? What’s belt color got to do with battles? Come at me

CHARANKO: Senpai, gimme a break! Plus this is just practice, we’re not fighting for real

CHARANKO: I like to take it easy during training, that’s why I’m a bit of a noob

Garou: Aren’t you older than I am? Aren’t you ashamed of being looked down upon? Huh?

CHARANKO: *screams*

Sound of punch

CHARANKO: Don’t pull your punch right before it lands! That’s scary!

Garou: You’re weak as hell. You don’t even qualify as a punching bag

Garou: Do you really want to be strong? Say, what are you gonna do if I were a monster?

CHARANKO: I’ll cry and beg and do everything I can so you’d let me go!

CHARANKO: I only started doing martial arts to become popular

Garou: Tsk, get out of my sight

FLASHBACK ENDS

CHARANKO: Thanks to him, I’m even less motivated nowadays

CHARANKO: Well, even though he’s been gone for 6 months

CHARANKO: I just triggered a lot of unhappy memories

TTM: What’s with the long face?

CHARANKO: Oh it’s nothing

TTM: So, I’m giving you this tank top as a souvenir

TTM: Try to become the man who deserve it

CHARANKO: eh…

CHARANKO: Sigh, it’s night already?

CHARANKO: Let’s phone Master Bang and call it a day

CHARANKO: The way those heroes operate…I don’t think it’s meant for me

CHARANKO: I just need to push my Water Stream Rock Smashing Fist to the limit and become popular…

Garou: Hey

CHARANKO: Heh?

Garou: You’re in my way, stop daydreaming in the middle of the road

CHARANKO: Can’t you just walk around me?

Garou: You, what’s that in your hand?

CHARANKO: Huh? You mean this tank top?

Garou: There’s a Hero’s Association logo on it

CHARANKO: Ah this, Tank Top Master gave me this

CHARANKO: You can have it if you’re a fan. Do you want it?

CHARANKO: By the way, you sound familiar. Have we met?

CHARANKO: It’s too dark, I can’t see your face

Garou: Tsk, so you’re not a hero, I’ll let you live

CHARANKO: What do you mean by…

SAITAMA: Aaah, that’s why I said no in the first place

CHARANKO: Hah! That voice!

SAITAMA: There’s no way I can finish the jumbo pot sticker in 30 minutes

GENOS: You think so? I believe it’s quite doable

SAITAMA: You just stuff it all in and let the machine take care the rest

SAITAMA: I’ve got a real digestive system you know

SAITAMA: Did you see the size of that pot sticker? It’s as big as a kid’s t-shirt!

SAITAMA: (BLARGH) I’m too full

GENOS: Sensei, barfing at this moment would be dangerous

GENOS: There’s the distinct possibility that you will involve nearby pedestrians

CHARANKO: Eh, what are you guys doing over there!

GENOS: Heh, so it’s just Silver Fang’s disciple, barf all you want, Sensei

CHARANKO: What do you mean by that!

CHARANKO: Not to mention there’re other people around too!

CHARANKO: See he’s right behind…eh? He’s not there anymore

SAITAMA: Eh? So you know this guy, Genos?

CHARANKO: How dare you…we met at the Dojo!

CHARANKO: What are you two doing here?

GENOS: Returning home after our patrol. Saitama sensei forgot his wallet again and was battling his hunger, so he took on the jumbo pot sticker challenge, because success would mean free food plus rewards.

GENOS: Unfortunately, he failed

GENOS: The restaurant demanded 5000 yen in fees, and we’re rushing home to get it

CHARANKO: What the hell was that?

CHARANKO: I’ve heard a lot of useless advice today, but you two take the cake

CHARANKO: How can you even call yourselves heroes?

GENOS: I don’t care about being a hero, power is the only thing I’m after

CHARANKO: Wh…what on earth does power have to do with eating competitions!?

SAITAMA: What, you want to become a hero?

SAITAMA: Then take the initiative and start helping others

CHARANKO: Huh, why is he getting serious all of a sudden

CHARANKO: No way! Are you telling me the true hero who’s finally making an appearance…

CHARANKO: The one who’s going to leave a real impression is…this dude!?

SAITAMA: Therefore… can you lend me 5000 yen?

CHARANKO: Like hell I’m falling for that!


Metal Bat says he doesn’t need martial arts as long as he’s got his bat Bang challenged him and Metal Bat can’t touch him once

Watchdog man wasn’t interested in the fight anyway So he left after taking a nap in the dojo. Watchdog man thinks Bang’s martial arts skills are boring to watch

TTM also thinks Bang’s secret is having a tank top under his black shirt lol

Also Watchdog man’s monument is near the station and a woman cleans the blood of monsters every day

the tank top crew can defeat a demon level altogether
