[?]: Hurry! Escape through here!
[?]: Forget the luggage, let’s go!
[?]: The road is blocked this way!
[?]: What do we do, elder?
(“alley leader…”, something like an elected person-in-charge of residents of a specific alley)
[?]: Oh, rumor has it there’s a secret passage through the City of Kings…
[?]: Stop crowding!
[?]: Stop crowding!
chapter 27 Engulfing Lü Bu
[Wen Chou]: Unbelievable.
[WC]: Do you recall what I said, my Lord?
[Yuan Shao]: That even if there are ten Lü Bu, you’ll devour them all.
[WC]: Should’ve said ten pretty ladies had I known this would happen.
[?]: So this is Wen Chou of Hebei!
[?]: Then the man with Liu Bian must be Yuan Shao.
[WC]: I heard that Lü Bu barged into one-eyed Liu Zong’s camp and killed him single-handedly.
[WC]: It boggled my mind how he was able to achieve that, but now I see how he did it.
[WC]: “Lü Bu” wasn’t just one man. So no wonder he was that powerful.
[?]: Do you all agree with my plan…?
[?]: Captain, our duty is to chase Yuan Shao into the City of Kings. This move might…
[?]: The goal is to eliminate Yuan Shao, right? Besides…
[?]: couldn’t Lü Bu’s ten commanding officers take on one measly Wen Chou?
[?]: This is our best chance to score top merit!
[?]: We’re supposed to be General-in-Chiefs, but our resemblance to Lü Bu turned us into idle body doubles.
[?]: I say we flex our muscles now and make a name for ourselves.
[?]: That makes sense!
[?]: Wen Chou dies first, then Yuan Shao!
[WC]: Lü Bu dies first.
[?]: One… one hit… and down he went…
[?]: Not with a blade, but the backside of an axe…
[?]: The horse’s feces came gushing out too. What power…
[?]: So even its internal organs couldn’t handle the force…
[YS]: What an ugly way to die.
[?]: The captain was killed in one hit. Deputy captain, what…
[WC]: If this is Lü Bu…
[WC]: then even a hundred of them,
(“don’t say ten… even if a hundred”)
GO DOWN EASY!
[?]: You once said,
(“I once heard you say”)
[?]: you wanted to be the governor of Luoyang after foster father unites the world.
(footnote says the same, simplified)
[?]: Sadly you fell in the line of duty.
[Lü Bu]: So, oath brother Xu Lin,
[LB]: I’ll burn Luoyang in your honor.
[LB]: Before you accept this offering, however… I’ve brought you your killers.
[?]: Release them.
(“push them out”)
[?]: Get over there!
[?]: You heard me?
[Meng]: First master.
[Guo Ang]: Deputy Chief Wang!
[Wang Gang]: Damn it. How many Lü Bu are there?
[Sima Lang]: Xiao Meng!
[Zhang Lei]: That’s right. He fell for Lü Bu’s trickery and revealed your whereabouts.
[M]: First master… I…
[SML]: That’s not what I’m saying…
[SML]: I was going to say, you’re so beautiful!
[SML]: So we’ve all witnessed Lü Bu’s true strength today.
[SML]: This man is full of brains and brawn, a solid second adviser to Dong Zhuo. I knew we’ve lost the moment I was captured.
[SML]: the Triad of Clear Wind suffers because of us.
[WG]: Had you not warned us to escape the burning of Luoyang,
[WG]: our Triad would’ve perished in the fire!
[WG]: We sacrificed a few dozen to save hundreds of our brothers. I wouldn’t call that suffering.
[SML]: Actually, it’s all my fault.
[SML]: If you didn’t have to save me…
[GA]: What are we, chopped livers?
[ZL]: Handicapped Warriors never miss the mark!
[ZL]: Besides, you don’t know what our crazy leader is up to.
[SML]: So it’s not over yet?
[WG]: Yes! As long as he’s around, we’re not afraid!
[ZL]: First Master is feeling better.
[ZL]: This is the only thing we could do now!
[LB]: Excellent. I’m itching for some action.
[ZL]: Yes. A little exercise will help.
Who knew we would be the first to take on Lü Bu!
