  3. =========================================================
  4.  
  5. Countdown to Breakdown
  6.  
  7. Ryou
  8. The cooperation route, huh... Midori-san's thinking we should try something else.
  9.  
  10. =====1=====
  11.  
  12. Kagome's Diary
  13. There was a single thread that connected to Promised Blood. The thread that Iroha-san and her friends spun little by little had snapped for unknown reasons.
  14. The cause was because the mahou shoujo of the south and Alina-san's group, who were acting independently, both became deeply involved, driving Kureha-san into a fury...
  15. As I unravel the actions that these girls took during that time, I have begun to piece together the events that drew my attention and eased my doubts.
  16. This was eight days before Iroha-san's group tried to negotiate. From Union's discussions...
  17. After they had decided to follow the route to cooperation, Iroha-san and her friends continued to talk about the Mirrors...
  18.  
  19. <8 Days Before Negotiations>
  20.  
  21. Kanagi
  22. I think it's a bad move, but the east can try to see a miracle one more time.
  23. However, our opponents say we are no different than Kyubey,
  24. so I think suitable compensation and agreements are required.
  25.  
  26. Iroha
  27. I understand.
  28.  
  29. Yachiyo
  30. For now, I think we need to negotiate with Promised Blood.
  31.  
  32. Kanagi
  33. This is our last opportunity. Making it work out would be great.
  34.  
  35. Yachiyo
  36. Yeah...
  37.  
  38. Hinano
  39. So that's the plan for now.
  40. The rest of our discussion is now about the Endless Mirrors.
  41.  
  42. Yachiyo
  43. Right, I believe everyone was sent a message before coming here,
  44. but I fear that Promised blood may be using them
  45. as a shortcut between Kamihama and Futatsugi.
  46.  
  47. Hinano
  48. Sounds like it's something that's happened before.
  49.  
  50. Yachiyo
  51. Yeah, Mitama used to deal with the Mirrors,
  52. but now the Mirror's familiars have grown,
  53. and they seem to have some special properties.
  54.  
  55. Kanagi
  56. Speaking of, Yakumo had told me
  57. that the barriers of the "offshoot witch" and the original witch are connected,
  58. and that the structure of their barriers are complex and strange...
  59.  
  60. Ikumi
  61. But, how does that tie in with the shortcut?
  62.  
  63. Yachiyo
  64. When these barriers are connected, the distance between their bodies is ignored.
  65.  
  66. Ikumi
  67. Then...that means...?
  68.  
  69. Yachiyo
  70. Even if the witches are 100km apart, if their barriers are connected, it becomes zero.
  71.  
  72. Ikumi
  73. Like...a warp...!?
  74.  
  75. Yachiyo
  76. Something like that.
  77. Furthermore, the offshoot witches that are making this possible are increasing.
  78.  
  79. Tsuruno
  80. I checked with the Tokime clan, too,
  81. and they seem to also be using a Mirrors route to get to Kamihama.
  82.  
  83. Hinano
  84. Then they're multiplying everywhere without us even knowing...
  85.  
  86. Ryou
  87. While we were trying to take out the witch, they've just been growing...
  88.  
  89. Ikumi
  90. Maybe Eve's impurities are also affecting them...?
  91.  
  92. Yachiyo
  93. As long as they're scattered, there's a possibilty that they're being absorbed...
  94.  
  95. Iroha
  96. ...Then we need a countermeasure against the Mirrors as soon as possible.
  97.  
  98. Yachiyo
  99. If we can't cut them off at the source, then we at least need to remove these routes.
  100. That would prove fatal against Promised Blood.
  101.  
  102. Ryou
  103. Would that be good enough?
  104. Satomi-san from Magius asked me to keep a close watch in the east.
  105. Would you take a look at this photo?
  106.  
  107. Iroha
  108. This is...of Daito...?
  109.  
  110. Yachiyo
  111. It's a fake street...
  112.  
  113. Iroha
  114. You were over there?
  115.  
  116. Yachiyo
  117. This is the place where we first identified the offshoot Mirrors.
  118.  
  119. Ryou
  120. This smells like scoop material to me.
  121.  
  122. Ikumi
  123. Geez, Ryou-chan, do you have to make such a bad face?
  124.  
  125. Kanagi
  126. However, I do believe this is sufficiently newsworthy.
  127. A witch like Mirrors isn't that difficult to find.
  128.  
  129. Ryou
  130. This means that we can hit Promised Blood's weakpoint.
  131.  
  132. Ikumi
  133. This is great, Ryou-chan! This will be a scoop~
  134.  
  135. Tsuruno
  136. But, now isn't the time to be doing something like that. You might affect our negotiations...
  137.  
  138. Hinano
  139. That could make us have to give up the Kimochi...
  140.  
  141. Ryou
  142. .....
  143.  
  144. Hinano
  145. Ryou?
  146.  
  147. Ryou
  148. Mm? It's nothing.
  149.  
  150. Iroha
  151. Now all that's left is what to do about the original witch...
  152.  
  153. Mifuyu
  154. Haa...huu...
  155. As for that...haa...may I start?
  156.  
  157. Yachiyo
  158. Oh, I didn't think you would make it today...
  159.  
  160. Mifuyu
  161. I finished...my homework from Touka...
  162. But that is not why I'm here. I have information about the Mirrors.
  163. No, it may be more appropriate to say that it is about Alina.
  164.  
  165. Yachiyo
  166. Alina...? Is she related to the Mirrors...?
  167.  
  168. Mifuyu
  169. It seems that she lost her memories within the Mirrors.
  170.  
  171. Tsuruno
  172. Eh, ehh? Alina's memories? What are you talking about...?
  173.  
  174. Mifuyu
  175. I don't understand, either.
  176. But, she has been seeing herself in the Mirrors every time she dreams,
  177. and the further she goes in, the more of a reaction she feels...
  178. All of those paintings she made, they were maps to finding it.
  179.  
  180. Yachiyo
  181. A map of the Mirrors... Then maybe...
  182.  
  183. Mifuyu
  184. Yes, if Alina's recovering memories and the witch's location are linked,
  185. we may be able to reach the innermost area of the barrier through what she sees.
  186.  
  187. Kanagi
  188. Will I finally get what I've sought after all this time...
  189. When the time is right, we need to form an investigation team.
  190.  
  191. Tsuruno
  192. That's right, hm hm!
  193. If we can defeat the original witch, the other groups can't come through,
  194. and Kamihama will be safe and secure!
  195.  
  196. Iroha
  197. We're in a situation where we can plan against Promised Blood,
  198. so once negotiations with them are over, then we can start moving.
  199. Also, Mifuyu-san.
  200.  
  201. Mifuyu
  202. Yes?
  203.  
  204. Iroha
  205. How is Karin-chan since last time...?
  206.  
  207. Mifuyu
  208. She's already been discharged from the hospital. It seems her injuries have already healed.
  209.  
  210. Iroha
  211. Thank goodness...
  212.  
  213. Mifuyu
  214. Ah, and Alina was discharged at the same time
  215. because there wasn't anything for her to do.
  216.  
  217. Tsuruno
  218. That's...going to make it harder to monitor her...
  219.  
  220. Ryou
  221. .....
  222.  
  223. Hinano
  224. (What's with Ryou... She's thinking something weird...)
  225.

  229.  
  230. -Science Room-
  231.  
  232. Hinano
  233. How strange...
  234.  
  235. Sakurako
  236. | What's wrong? |
  237.  
  238. Hinano
  239. Nothing, it's just there's no cardboard even though it's recycling day.
  240. Or at least I thought it was today...
  241.  
  242. Sakurako
  243. | Are you going to make an animal house? |
  244. | Isn't Felicia constructing a home for Mokyu? |
  245.  
  246. Hinano
  247. Nah, I'm prepping some teaching material for the children's chemistry expirement class.
  248.  
  249. Sakurako
  250. | I see, it's that drug that makes Hinano taller. |
  251.  
  252. Hinano
  253. Hahaha, yeah, yeah.
  254. It'll make the kids grow up really quick and~ wait, you're wrong!
  255. First of all, that's not something you can do with cardboard!
  256.  
  257. Sakurako
  258. | ..... |
  259. | I was yelled at... |
  260.  
  261. Hinano
  262. I was just going along with the tsukkomi joke, but I suppose that's hard for Sakurako...
  263. That's my bad...
  264. By the way, Sakurako, why haven't you gone to the newspaper club?
  265.  
  266. Sakurako
  267. | Because Ryou went out to find a scoop. |
  268.  
  269. Hinano
  270. A scoop...?
  271.  
  272. Sakurako
  273. | She said she wanted to narrow it down because it's useless as it is now. |
  274. | But what she meant isn't something I understand. |
  275.  
  276. Hinano
  277. Ahh...
  278.  
  279. -Flashback-
  280.  
  281. Ryou
  282. .....
  283.  
  284. Hinano
  285. Ryou?
  286.  
  287. Ryou
  288. Mm? It's nothing.
  289.  
  290. -End Flashback-
  291.  
  292. Hinano
  293. She seemed pretty unhappy...
  294. (It's true that incomplete evidence can't be used effectively.)
  295. (If you're going to deal the finishing blow to someone, you have to go one step further.)
  296. Although, that's not allowed now...
  297. Sakurako, I think I'm going to be leaving school early today, too.
  298.  
  299. Sakurako
  300. | Then I will also go home. It would be boring without Hinano. |
  301.  
  302. Hinano
  303. Go ahead.
  304. (I should probably contact Ikumi... She'll listen to her more than me...)
  305.  
  306. =====2=====
  307.  
  308. -Hospital-
  309.  
  310. Mifuyu
  311. First of all, congratulations on being discharged.
  312.  
  313. Alina
  314. Alina was discharged once before though.
  315.  
  316. Mifuyu
  317. And this is for Karin-san.
  318.  
  319. Karin
  320. Thanks a lot!
  321. I'm feeling so much better, I think I can draw the best manga ever now!
  322.  
  323. Alina
  324. Don't think that will happen until your drawing improves though.
  325.  
  326. Karin
  327. Uu...
  328.  
  329. Mifuyu
  330. Is your family coming to get you today?
  331.  
  332. Karin
  333. Yeah, Obaa-chan and everyone said they'll be here!
  334. She said she needed me to do various things for her? Or something.
  335.  
  336. Mifuyu
  337. And Alina?
  338.  
  339. Alina
  340. Alina is furii, therefore Alina is leaving on her own.
  341.  
  342. Karin
  343. Alina-senpai!
  344.  
  345. Alina
  346. Wattsu?
  347.  
  348. Karin
  349. Don't ever forget about the Magical Kirin you read in the hospital!
  350. Especially the one about the phantom thief girl
  351. stopping a researcher from destroying the earth by giving her words of affection;
  352. that one is for Alina-senpai!
  353. Right now Alina-senpai's heart should be full of sweetness!
  354. That's why you're supposed to be rehabilitated- nyu!
  355.  
  356. [*Bunyu bunyu bunyu bunyu!*] ¹
  357.  
  358. Karin
  359. Stahp pijig mah jeeks!
  360.  
  361. Alina
  362. Alina is sick of being called daatii, ya know...
  363. Besides, since we go to the same school,
  364. eventually we'll encounter each other and talk again.
  365. Alina's not going to forget, ya know.
  366.  
  367. Karin
  368. Alina-senpai, will you be going to club activities?
  369.  
  370. Alina
  371. That may cause Alina's memorii to return, yes.
  372.  
  373. Karin
  374. That's great!
  375.  
  376. Momoko
  377. Karin-chan, your mother and family came to get you.
  378.  
  379. Rena
  380. Why don't you show them just how great you're feeling?
  381.  
  382. Karin
  383. Ah, okay.
  384.  
  385. Alina
  386. .....
  387. Mifuyu.
  388.  
  389. Mifuyu
  390. Yes?
  391.  
  392. Alina
  393. It's true Union is also going to chekku the Mirrors?
  394.  
  395. Mifuyu
  396. It is just as I told you the other day.
  397. There is a lot of suspicious things surrounding the Mirrors,
  398. so they are talking about forming an investigation team.
  399.  
  400. Alina
  401. Hmm...
  402. Then tell Alina when we take akushon, okay.
  403. We have to dive diipu,
  404. because otherwise Alina's memorii may never come back.
  405.  
  406. Mifuyu
  407. I understand...
  408.  
  409. Karin's Voice
  410. Alina-senpaaii!
  411.  
  412. Karin
  413. I'll see you school yeah!
  414.  
  415. Alina
  416. We're in a hosupitaru, but she's so noiji, isn't she.
  417. Fuuru Gaaru...
  418.  
  419. Mifuyu
  420. Is Alina going to go home?
  421.  
  422. Alina
  423. Alina is going to the fake street.
  424.  
  425. Mifuyu
  426. Hold on, right now we cannot move and risk the negotiations...
  427. Besides that, Alina is still a Magius you know...?
  428.  
  429. Alina
  430. Notto mataa.
  431. Because Alina has nothing to do with Union, Alina does what she wants, ya know.
  432.  
  433. Mifuyu
  434. Please wait a minute!
  435.  
  436. -Under Bridge / Highway-
  437.  
  438. Ryou
  439. Hinano-san, Makino-chan... You guys didn't have to follow me...
  440.  
  441. Hinano
  442. If this is really a weakpoint for Promised Blood,
  443. then if you're found out the negotiations will be all for nothing.
  444.  
  445. Ikumi
  446. She's right, Ryou-chan,
  447. it's especially not a good idea to go alone~
  448. Besides, you said you would take pictures at my next volleyball game,
  449. and you promised we would talk about what pictures to take, didn't you~
  450.  
  451. Ryou
  452. Just like Makino-chan, Midori-san is gettin' pretty popular these days.
  453. But, sorry I forgot...
  454.  
  455. Ikumi
  456. Geez!
  457.  
  458. Hinano
  459. Oi, don't change the subject.
  460.  
  461. Ryou
  462. Mm, what...?
  463.  
  464. Hinano
  465. Come on, you can't wiggle your way out of this...
  466.  
  467. Ryou
  468. No, isn't that...Alina-san over there...?
  469.  
  470. Hinano
  471. Don't be ridiculous.
  472.  
  473. Alina
  474. So there's no reaction around here in particular...
  475.  
  476. Mifuyu
  477. Hey, Alina, this is really dangerous, so we need to keep it down.
  478. Denjaa, Denjaa.
  479.  
  480. Alina
  481. Sharap. Mifuyu can go home alone ya know.
  482.  
  483. Mifuyu
  484. Geez, Alina, what will you do if something were to happen to you!?
  485. You know you are making me angry now?
  486.  
  487. Hinano
  488. That fool! Even Mifuyu-san!?
  489.  
  490. Ryou
  491. See, I was right...?
  492.  
  493. ---
  494.  
  495. Hinano
  496. I see...
  497.  
  498. Alina
  499. It's been said already, but Alina has nothing to do with Union.
  500. It's fine if you want the akushon to sutoppu,
  501. but Alina wants you to stop forcing me, ya know.
  502.  
  503. Mifuyu
  504. Is there a reason why Alina is forcing me to go along with this?
  505.  
  506. Hinano
  507. Alina wanted to investigate, and Mifuyu wanted her to stop,
  508. so you guys were having a dispute.
  509.  
  510. Ikumi
  511. Then it's the same as us.
  512.  
  513. Ryou
  514. You're right, but...
  515.  
  516. Alina
  517. Haa... Do you even understand Alina in the first place?
  518. What it feels like to have your memorii rosuto.
  519.  
  520. Mifuyu
  521. ――っ!?
  522.  
  523. Alina
  524. This baddo fiiringu of standing in a world where you understand nothing...
  525.  
  526. Mifuyu
  527. That's...
  528.  
  529. Alina
  530. Besides, Alina has encountered a mahou shoujo that is risaachingu the Mirrors,
  531. so Alina has no reason to go suruu with this anymore.
  532.  
  533. Ryou
  534. Are you talkin' about Midori-san?
  535.  
  536. Alina
  537. ofukousu.
  538. Except for the mappu dorouingu of the original Mirrors from Alina's point of view,
  539. Alina is notto niido, yeah?
  540. That's why Alina wants to see and chekku the offshoot Mirrors,
  541. because no dorouingu is required to find the offshoot's magical reaction.
  542.  
  543. Hinano
  544. Sorry, but I can't let you take Ryou.
  545. It would be really bad if they found out she's a part of Union...
  546.  
  547. Ryou
  548. Hinano-san...
  549.  
  550. Ikumi
  551. Kumi really understands how Ryou-chan feels,
  552. but Kumi thinks it's better to follow what Hinano-san said and stay back for now.
  553.  
  554. Ryou
  555. ...At any rate, it doesn't seem like we'd catch anything given the current situation...
  556.  
  557. Mifuyu
  558. Just to confirm again, what is the current situation?
  559.  
  560. Ryou
  561. To give a rough summary, we've been looking for this offshoot Mirrors,
  562. there's the offshoot Mirrors that Yakumo-san took care of,
  563. and eyewitness reports of concentrations of Promised Blood in the east.
  564. Also, Midori-san snapped a picture of Ooba Juri.
  565. When you add it all up, this whole place smells fishy.
  566.  
  567. Hinano
  568. But, you've reached a dead end here.
  569.  
  570. Ryou
  571. There's no magical reaction here to clue me in,
  572. so my ability to never miss a photo opportunity won't kick in.
  573. That's why it seems like Midori-san has to give up.
  574.  
  575. Mifuyu
  576. Then, if you would please, just refrain from doing anything for now.
  577.  
  578. Ryou
  579. Azusa-san, are you really okay with that?
  580. As it is, you know we won't have a weakpoint to exploit in case there's an emergency, right?
  581.  
  582. Mifuyu
  583. Right now our top priority should be negotiating successfully.
  584. If there is an emergency, then we can rely on your ability.
  585.  
  586. Ryou
  587. So that's it, huh. Azusa-san's also going for convenience.
  588.  
  589. Mifuyu
  590. Apologies.
  591. Alina, you should go home for today as well and wait a little while.
  592. Since there are no clues to follow, we will just be exposed to tricks.
  593.  
  594. Alina
  595. Haa, okay...
  596. Besides, it seems like what looks like Alina's mazaa is at the hosupitaru...
  597.  
  598. Mifuyu
  599. Did you not say she was not coming to get you earlier!?
  600.  
  601. Alina
  602. Maybe Alina didn't hear properly, so the puran was actually to come get me?
  603. Really...
  604. Everyone is so vague, it's all baddonesu...
  605.

  608. <1 Day Before Negotiations>
  609.  
  610. Alina
  611. .....
  612.  
  613. Karin
  614. That painting of the Mirrors that you did at the hospital,
  615. aren't you going to continue working on it?
  616.  
  617. Alina
  618. .....
  619.  
  620. Karin
  621. She came all the way to the club, but she's sleeping...
  622.  
  623. -Dream of Mirrors-
  624.  
  625. Alina
  626. These hideous barriers keep spreading in my dreams.
  627.  
  628. ――――
  629.  
  630. Alina
  631. There's a woman's voice very far away,
  632. and Alina's own reaction is somewhere deep within...
  633. That is exactly where Alina's memorii is...
  634. [The more Alina dives in and chases that voice, the closer the memorii becomes,]
  635. [but suddenly Alina can't move forward; it feels like a deddorokku...]
  636.  
  637. ――――
  638.  
  639. Alina
  640. [Yet that woman's voice still calls out, telling Alina to get to the diipu end.]
  641. [But that must mean Alina needs to dive into the Mirrors, if it's impossible to go deeper within the doriimu.]
  642. [That's why Alina wants to proceed with the mappu meikingu, but there's still one puroburemu...that this is an offshoot of the Mirrors...]
  643. [The magical pataan has to be grasped, otherwise Alina will have to continue doroingu useless mappu...]
  644.  
  645. ――――
  646.  
  647. Alina
  648. Tch, VAAAAH!
  649. So, if you want Alina to come to you, where is this offshoot Mirrors?
  650. Alina wants you to say it clear as day now!
  651. Alina doesn't give a damn what part of Alina you are!
  652. However, the way things are going, don't you think YOU are going to be in trouble too!?
  653. .....
  654. Once again, Alina is going to Daito...
  655. so if you fiiru anything, let Alina know, okay.
  656.  
  657. -End Dream-
  658.  
  659. Alina
  660. Ha...
  661.  
  662. Karin
  663. Senpai's finally up!
  664. I want you to tell me how the name of the manga I drew in the hospital was.
  665.  
  666. Alina
  667. Hold it, Alina is going to Minaminagi.
  668.  
  669. Karin
  670. Heh...?
  671.  
  672. Alina
  673. Midori Ryou...that mahou shoujo should still be interested, yes...
  674.  
  675. Karin
  676. Eh, eh...!?
  677. .....
  678. Alina-senpai! Wait up!
  679.

  681.  
  682. -Science Room-
  683.  
  684. Hinano
  685. From the look of things, you haven't been to Daito yet.
  686.  
  687. Ryou
  688. Well, yeah, after I got talked to like that.
  689.  
  690. Hinano
  691. Well, I'm just glad you listened to what I had to say,
  692. but why can't you work on your newspaper in your own clubroom?
  693.  
  694. Ryou
  695. Because, isn't our member Sakurako-san moving around as she pleases?
  696. She's always wandering about and stopping by the chemistry room,
  697. so Midori-san thought it would be fine to be here, too.
  698.  
  699. Hinano
  700. She does always seem to have free time.
  701.  
  702. Ryou
  703. But she has things to keep her busy, doesn't she?
  704.  
  705. Sakurako
  706. | Hinano. |
  707.  
  708. Ryou
  709. And there she is.
  710.  
  711. Hinano
  712. There's no Hinano, go help Ryou with her newspaper club.
  713.  
  714. Ryou
  715. It's fine, don't worry about it. Was today another free day for you?
  716.  
  717. Sakurako
  718. | Today Sensei had a little interesting story to tell me. |
  719.  
  720. Hinano
  721. Huh, that's unusual. What did she talk about?
  722.  
  723. Sakurako
  724. | The story of the disaster in Kamihama. |
  725.  
  726. Ryou
  727. ――っ!?
  728. ~ .....Alina-san? ~
  729.  
  730. Alina
  731. ~ You don't have to ask, Alina believes we met at the fake street. ~
  732.  
  733. Ryou
  734. ~ No, you're right... ~
  735. ~ And I know I'm a former white feather and Alina-san is a Magius... ~
  736. ~ So, what can I do for you...? ~
  737.  
  738. Alina
  739. ~ Tomorrow, we're going to Daito again. ~
  740.  
  741. Ryou
  742. ~ ... ~
  743.  
  744. Alina
  745. ~ You were also interested in the offshoot Mirrors, yes? ~
  746. ~ Alina will be uetingu at the fake street, ~
  747. ~ so if you're interested, you're coming too, yeah. ~
  748. ~ Aha... ~
  749.  
  750. Ryou
  751. .....
  752.  
  753. Alina
  754. .....
  755.  
  756. Sakurako
  757. | Ryou, were you listening just now? |
  758.  
  759. Ryou
  760. Eh?
  761.  
  762. Hinano
  763. Your head isn't here, huh...
  764. Sakurako was telling you what Sensei told her.
  765. Were you thinking about the Endless Mirrors?
  766.  
  767. Sakurako
  768. | Mirrors? |
  769.  
  770. Hinano
  771. Ryou's worried about Promised Blood's secret.
  772.  
  773. Ryou
  774. .....
  775. Well, it made me curious, but
  776. if Union isn't going to spring into action, then I won't keep investigating it.
  777. Although right now I'm thinking about what Satori-chan told me.
  778.  
  779. Hinano
  780. You mean spreading the story of mahou shoujo around using Ryou's photos?
  781.  
  782. Ryou
  783. Yeah yeah, that's it.
  784. I was enthusiastic looking for shots, but I got nothin' decent.
  785. I never thought I'd be chasin' mahou shoujo for photos,
  786. but isn't it better than dirtying my lens with a teacher's love gossip?
  787.  
  788. Hinano
  789. That's pretty admirable, isn't it?
  790.  
  791. Ryou
  792. Then, Midori-san is gonna look for some scoop material.
  793.  
  794. Hinano
  795. Oi, didn't you just unfold that paper?
  796.  
  797. Ryou
  798. I'm not running from my work, but I can do this another time.
  799.  
  800. Hinano
  801. ...Just don't get caught up in trouble.
  802.  
  803. Sakurako
  804. | It appears that she is running away. |
  805.  
  806. Hinano
  807. Agreed.
  808.

  810.  
  811. -Hozumi Coffeehouse-
  812.  
  813. Ryou
  814. Yo, Hozumi-chan.
  815.  
  816. Shizuku
  817. Ryou-san, would you like the usual today?
  818.  
  819. Ryou
  820. If by the usual, you mean the cheapest blend ya got?
  821.  
  822. Shizuku
  823. Huhu, that it is.
  824. It's rare for you to be here so early.
  825.  
  826. Ryou
  827. I heard Union and Promised Blood were gonna have their negotiations here.
  828.  
  829. Shizuku
  830. It seems they are. Were you also participating?
  831.  
  832. Ryou
  833. Nah, I just came to scope the situation a little before it starts.
  834. .....
  835. Hozumi-chan, do you think the negotiations will go well...?
  836.  
  837. Shizuku
  838. ...I wonder.
  839. Unlike Ryou-san and Ikumi-san, I'm not in the middle of all of this...
  840. But I did hear that if this fails, there could be an all-out war...
  841.  
  842. Ryou
  843. I see...
  844. There's a mahou shoujo nearby...?
  845.  
  846. Shizuku
  847. It's been a few days, but I feel a reaction that I don't know of.
  848.  
  849. Ryou
  850. ...Maybe they weren't planning to talk from the very beginning.
  851.  
  852. Shizuku
  853. Eh?
  854.  
  855. Ryou
  856. It's nothing. Well, Midori-san is off.
  857. Sorry, I'm just killing time. I'll be back for a drink later.
  858.  
  859. Shizuku
  860. We're a coffeehouse, but Ryou-san makes it sound like we serve alcohol.
  861.  
  862. Ryou
  863. Maybe I should take Alina-san's invitation...
  864.  
  865. =====4=====
  866.  
  867. <The Day of Negotiations>
  868.  
  869. Ryou
  870. I'm here.
  871.  
  872. Alina
  873. Okay, you didn't bring anyone else?
  874.  
  875. Ryou
  876. Not with how this situation is.
  877. So, even though we couldn't sense anything last time,
  878. you think we can find the offshoot Mirrors today?
  879.  
  880. Alina
  881. If you use your hiaringu, you'll surely understand ya know.
  882. And when Alina's gaido is over,
  883. next is your taan
  884. to show off your abiriti.
  885.  
  886. Ryou
  887. I get it.
  888.  
  889. Alina
  890. Then, Alina wants you to ueito a little.
  891. .....
  892.  
  893. Ryou
  894. (She's sleeping...?)
  895.  
  896. Alina
  897. .....
  898.  
  899. -Dream Mirrors-
  900.  
  901. Alina
  902.  
  903. So we've arrived at the place where the offshoot Mirrors was in Daito before.
  904. If Alina can figure out this offshoot's magical pataan, there will be no need for any useless mappu.
  905. So hurry up and tell me.
  906. ――っ!?
  907. Alina wasn't the one sensing just now...
  908. It was you that is inside Alina...you sensed it and told Alina...?
  909. Whether you're the former Alina, or someone else entirely, is unknown to me.
  910. Well, thank you for now.
  911. [Alina will find you one day, so keep waiting.]
  912.  
  913. -Dream End-
  914.  
  915. Alina
  916. Faundo...
  917.  
  918. Ryou
  919. You found it, huh.
  920.  
  921. Hinano
  922. AND WE FOUND YOU TOO!
  923.  
  924. Ryou
  925. ――っ!?
  926. Hinano-san...
  927.  
  928. Hinano
  929. What's with you and not staying back, dumbass!? You're going too far!
  930.  
  931. Karin
  932. Alina-senpai, too. It's terrible that you haven't stopped!
  933.  
  934. Alina
  935. Alina is going.
  936.  
  937. Ryou
  938. Hinano-san,
  939. it's possible that Promised Blood knows where all the Kamihama mahou shoujo live.
  940.  
  941. Hinano
  942. Haa?
  943.  
  944. Ryou
  945. The negotiations might have already broken down, and they're gonna kill everyone before there's time to react.
  946. If it's happening today, then we're out of time.
  947. We have to hit their weakpoint right now, while we still can.
  948.  
  949. Ikumi
  950. You're really serious...?
  951.  
  952. Ryou
  953. I'm convinced that they're hiding around Hozumi-chan's shop.
  954.  
  955. Ikumi
  956. Ryou-chan...
  957.  
  958. Hinano
  959. You're really going through with this...?
  960.  
  961. Ryou
  962. I'm going with Alina-san. From here on it's Midori-san's turn.
  963.  
  964. Hinano
  965. I understand... I'll go with you, then...
  966. I can't just leave you alone.
  967.  
  968. Ryou
  969. You're just gonna get in the way.
  970.  
  971. Hinano
  972. I can't believe you...
  973.  
  974. Ryou
  975. Alina-san, where's this place at?
  976.  
  977. Karin
  978. If Alina-senpai is going, then I'm going too!
  979.  
  980. Alina
  981. ...Do whatever you want?
  982. By the way, the place is near the border of Daito and Minaminagi, yes.
  983. Looking at this mappu, Alina thinks it's around here.
  984.  
  985. Ryou
  986. This is...
  987.  
  988. Alina
  989. Yuuno?
  990.  
  991. Ryou
  992. ...I'm sure this is in Kamihama Prison.
  993.  
  994. ---
  995.  
  996. -Kamihama Prison-
  997.  
  998. Alina
  999. This is a purizun?
  1000.  
  1001. Karin
  1002. It's scary even during the day... Ghosts might even show up...
  1003.  
  1004. Hinano
  1005. Oi, aren't you supposed to be the mahou shoujo born of Halloween...?
  1006.  
  1007. Ryou
  1008. Midori-san never found any ghosts when entering on a dare before.
  1009. So, you're positive this is where the magical reactions are?
  1010.  
  1011. Alina
  1012. It seems they're coming from andaguraundo.
  1013. But beyond that, Alina doesn't know where.
  1014.  
  1015. Ikumi
  1016. Huh, you're not looking for magical power, though.
  1017.  
  1018. Alina
  1019. Alina is just following what she was told.
  1020.  
  1021. Ikumi
  1022. There's someone inside Alina...?
  1023.  
  1024. Alina
  1025. Zattsuraito.
  1026.  
  1027. Ryou
  1028. Alright, it's time for Midori-san's ability to come into play here.
  1029.  
  1030. Hinano
  1031. You mean you're going to find a scoop underground?
  1032.  
  1033. Ryou
  1034. Yep, we're gonna find the secret by snapping it through my viewfinder.
  1035.  
  1036. Ikumi
  1037. But, Ryou-chan... Is there even a way to get underground...?
  1038.  
  1039. Ryou
  1040. It sounds complicated, but if nothing's changed since I did my dare here, there won't be any problems.
  1041.  
  1042. Hinano
  1043. Then, we'll hide ourselves until Ryou gets back.
  1044.  
  1045. Karin
  1046. Ah, things would get really bad if Promised Blood found us...
  1047.  
  1048. Hinano
  1049. That's what I thought.
  1050.  
  1051. Ryou
  1052. Even if enemies show up, just leave us alone, Hinano-san.
  1053. I wouldn't want you getting involved in that.
  1054.  
  1055. =====5=====
  1056.  
  1057. Kagome's Diary
  1058. At this point, Miyako-san and her group had arrived at Kamihama Prison, unable to stop Ryou-san.
  1059. She wouldn't admit it herself, but she seemed to give up on the idea of stopping Ryou-san since Alina-san was going either way...
  1060. So I think everyone really just wanted to blame Alina-san.
  1061. However, they would not do that because they knew Alina-san is not in Union, and that she wouldn't understand anyway...
  1062. The day that Iroha-san and her friends began negotiations... I wonder if even Kureha-san was a little shaken, with no way to control her emotions...
  1063. No matter what miracle was close to happening, one wrong step would ruin everything...
  1064.  
  1065. -Kamihama Prison-
  1066.  
  1067. Ao
  1068. I guess it was better to be late meeting up with the eldest sister~
  1069. Magius' Alina and the mahou shoujo from the south are here...
  1070.  
  1071. Urara
  1072. It'll be fine, third sister.
  1073. Even if they break into the prison, they won't find the entrance to the barrier.
  1074.  
  1075. Ao
  1076. No, all it'll take is that Midori Ryou's ability to find it...
  1077.  
  1078. Urara
  1079. Eh...!
  1080.  
  1081. Ao
  1082. It's alert level max. What members are here...?
  1083.  
  1084. Urara
  1085. Including myself and the third sister, there's eight of us.
  1086.  
  1087. Ao
  1088. As long as Alina is here, it's not an easy game,
  1089. but aside from Midori Ryou, there's four enemies here, so we need to hold them off.
  1090. But before that, I need to contact the eldest sister.
  1091.  
  1092. -Ai's Barrier-
  1093.  
  1094. PB Girl
  1095. Haa, haa, Yuna-san...
  1096.  
  1097. Yuna
  1098. You...came from outside...?
  1099. I appreciate the concern, but we're waiting for an opportunity, so we don't need reinforcements.
  1100.  
  1101. PB Girl
  1102. Ah, haa, that's not it, I was contacted and came to tell you...
  1103.  
  1104. Yuna
  1105. Contacted? Wonder if it's Sakuya...
  1106. (If negotiations break down, we'll have to proceed with preparing the "mechanism...")
  1107. (But, can it even be done...?)
  1108.  
  1109. -Flashback in the Catacombs-
  1110.  
  1111. Sana
  1112. All of the Futatsugi mahou shoujo are resting here...
  1113.  
  1114. Tsuruno
  1115. Yeah...
  1116. We're not the kind of people that would ruin the resting place of the dead...
  1117.  
  1118. Yuna
  1119. .....
  1120. So...you're thinking...about these girls...
  1121.  
  1122. -End Flashback-
  1123.  
  1124. Yuna
  1125. ...Tell me.
  1126.  
  1127. PB Girl
  1128. That is...if what I've been told is correct...
  1129.  
  1130. Yuna
  1131. .....
  1132.  
  1133. PB Girl
  1134. It seems that Union has just appeared at the front of the prison.
  1135. Also, I was told that Midori Ryou is amongst them...
  1136. The third sister believes they're going to cut off our lifeline...
  1137.  
  1138. Yuna
  1139. Everything you just told me is the truth, yes...?
  1140.  
  1141. PB Girl
  1142. Yes...!
  1143.  
  1144. Yuna
  1145. Then tell Sakuya immediately...
  1146. that negotiations have been broken off.
  1147. Even if they send reinforcements, keep them out of the prison!
  1148.  
  1149. PB Girl
  1150. I-I understand!
  1151.  
  1152. Yuna
  1153. So this is what the people of Kamihama do.
  1154. You must have prepared plenty of sweet-talk to invite us
  1155. for an opportunity to have a discussion...
  1156.  
  1157. -Mall-
  1158.  
  1159. [*Snip...*]
  1160.  
  1161. Iroha
  1162. Okay, I think that shouldn't come off for a while.
  1163.  
  1164. Hikaru
  1165. Thanks to you, Tamaki-san.
  1166.  
  1167. Iroha
  1168. No, this was something simple.

  1172. Sakuya
  1173. Ah, sorry, it's them, it must be their answer to what talked about earlier.
  1174.  
  1175. Yachiyo
  1176. Well... I wonder how this will go...
  1177.  
  1178. Iroha
  1179. .....
  1180.  
  1181. Tsuruno
  1182. I'm really nervous...
  1183.  
  1184. Sakuya
  1185. Hello, it's me...
  1186. .....Yeah.
  1187. .....Eh?
  1188. W-wait a minute! Did I hear you correctly...!?
  1189. The conditions Union gave us are huge!
  1190. .....Yeah.
  1191. What's going on over there...?
  1192. What...no way...you mean that...?
  1193. Yeah...I don't think the third sister would lie...
  1194. ...I understand, and I'll move right away.
  1195.  
  1196. Hikaru
  1197. That sounded really serious...
  1198.  
  1199. Iroha
  1200. It did...
  1201.  
  1202. Sakuya
  1203. Unfortunately, Tamaki-san, things aren't going to work out.
  1204. Let's go, Hikaru.
  1205.  
  1206. Hikaru
  1207. Wai- whattaya talking about!? Those two even said they'd give up their lives!
  1208.  
  1209. Sakuya
  1210. I'll explain the reason on the way.
  1211.  
  1212. Yachiyo
  1213. Wait! We want to hear why too!
  1214.  
  1215. Sakuya
  1216. If you ask your heart, you'll already have the answer!
  1217.  
  1218. Hikaru
  1219. Eh, um, Tamaki-san...
  1220.  
  1221. Iroha
  1222. I don't understand either...!
  1223.  
  1224. Hikaru
  1225. っ...!
  1226.  
  1227. Tsuruno
  1228. Do they really want to kill all of us that badly...
  1229. I hate to say it, but we need to talk about mobilizing every member of Union...
  1230.  
  1231. Iroha
  1232. And talk about Promised Blood's shortcut, too...
  1233.  
  1234. Yachiyo
  1235. Right...I'll go ask Miyako-san to get to work...
  1236.  
  1237. ---
  1238.  
  1239. -Phone Call-
  1240.  
  1241. Hinano
  1242. Yachiyo-san, is this about the negotiations...?
  1243.  
  1244. Yachiyo
  1245. Yes...they broke down spectacularly... And I don't know the reason why...
  1246.  
  1247. Hinano
  1248. I see, so it couldn't work out...
  1249.  
  1250. Yachiyo
  1251. I need to ask something of you, though.
  1252.  
  1253. Hinano
  1254. What is it?
  1255.  
  1256. Yachiyo
  1257. Midori-san took a picture of Ooba Juri over there, right?
  1258. Using that, I would like to find Promised Blood's shortcut
  1259. and strike at their weakpoint before this conflict worsens.
  1260.  
  1261. Hinano
  1262. I thought about stopping her, but I suppose that isn't necessary...
  1263.  
  1264. Yachiyo
  1265. Eh?
  1266.  
  1267. Hinano
  1268. That Ryou, I was trying to tell her to stop, but she went on ahead
  1269. in case something were to go wrong, like right now.
  1270.  
  1271. Yachiyo
  1272. So that's what happened. That helps.
  1273. .....
  1274. Wait, you mean she was moving on her own until now...?
  1275.  
  1276. Hinano
  1277. I'm sorry, I couldn't stop her...
  1278.  
  1279. Yachiyo
  1280. Were there any Promised Blood magical reactions nearby...?
  1281.  
  1282. Hinano
  1283. No, we haven't sensed anything, but what's going on...?
  1284.  
  1285. Yachiyo
  1286. I think the negotiations broke because they caught you guys moving.
  1287.  
  1288. Hinano
  1289. Wha...
  1290.  
  1291. Yachiyo
  1292. If you were caught at this time, from their point of view...
  1293. We're sweet-talking them at the table, but trying to cut their lifeline behind their backs.
  1294.  
  1295. Hinano
  1296. This is my fault, Yachiyo-san... I should have stopped her forcibly...
  1297.  
  1298. Yachiyo
  1299. I'm not so sure about that, though...
  1300. More importantly, if my assumption is correct, their anger
  1301. is more evidence that there is a shortcut nearby.
  1302.  
  1303. Hinano
  1304. Tch, now that we've broken the rules, we have to find it...
  1305.  
  1306. Yachiyo
  1307. I'm asking you...
  1308.  
  1309. -End Phone Call-
  1310.  
  1311. Yachiyo
  1312. Haa...
  1313.  
  1314. Tsuruno
  1315. Yachiyo...?
  1316.  
  1317. Yachiyo
  1318. The south was looking for Promised Blood's shortcut.
  1319.  
  1320. Iroha
  1321. Um, then are Hinano-san and her friends in danger...!?
  1322. Promised Blood may start attacking everyone...!
  1323.  
  1324. Tsuruno
  1325. I'll ask Kanagi for backup!
  1326.  
  1327. Iroha
  1328. Me too, I'll ask Momoko-san's team to go join them!
  1329. (If things don't go well, Hinano-san's team is only three people.)
  1330. (If Kureha-san starts moving people, though...)
  1331. [Even though the container terminal is in Minaminagi Ward, it's near Daito and where Hinano-san's team is...]
  1332. [Even if Kanagi-san's team makes it in time, they won't stand a chance...]
  1333.  
  1334. -Sakura Uwasa Area-
  1335.  
  1336. Kagome
  1337. Eh...Hinano-san's group, and Promised Blood...?
  1338.  
  1339. Touka
  1340. It sounds exactly like what Onee-sama was saying.
  1341. It's interesting that Alina is also there. Kuhuhu.
  1342.  
  1343. Nemu
  1344. Our resolution and Onee-san's hope have both been wasted.
  1345. And since we're the cause of all of this, I have no optimism.
  1346.  
  1347. Sakurako
  1348. | Is Ryou okay...? |
  1349.  
  1350. Nemu
  1351. There's no doubt that she's Promised Blood's target.
  1352. But now that negotiations are broken, we must get that evidence.
  1353.  
  1354. Touka
  1355. The time has finally come when eeeveryone is going to be involved in a battle...
  1356.  
  1357. Sakurako
  1358. | ..... |
  1359.  
  1360. Touka
  1361. For now, all we can do is wait for Ryou to come here.
  1362. Satori Kagome has gathered us to spread everything about mahou shoujo,
  1363. so we can't fight anyway.
  1364.  
  1365. Kagome
  1366. .....Yeah.
  1367.  
  1368. =====6=====
  1369.  
  1370. -Kamihama Prison-
  1371.  
  1372. Ao
  1373. It's pointless trying to hide.
  1374.  
  1375. Karin
  1376. We were found...
  1377.  
  1378. Hinano
  1379. Since we give off magical reactions, it was only a matter of time.
  1380.  
  1381. Ao
  1382. Huh~? Aren't we missing one more?
  1383.  
  1384. Hinano
  1385. Mm? Now that you mention it, I wonder where she went.
  1386.  
  1387. Ao
  1388. So now we know what each other knows?
  1389.  
  1390. Hinano
  1391. Hu, you're diggin' your grave. It's like you just declared you're in a pinch,
  1392. because the more hostile you get, the more of a sense of doom you seem to give off.
  1393.  
  1394. Ao
  1395. Can you be so sure about that~?
  1396.  
  1397. Urara
  1398. If we're going to chase after her, we'd be better off finishing this quickly.
  1399.  
  1400. Ao
  1401. Yeah, you're right.
  1402.  
  1403. Alina
  1404. Haa...
  1405. Alina just wants to get her memorii back though...
  1406.  
  1407. Karin
  1408. You can't just say that and expect them to let us pass...
  1409. We're in big trouble...
  1410.  
  1411. Ikumi
  1412. It's alright, Karin-chan,
  1413. I sent for help from Kanagi-san...
  1414.  
  1415. Hinano
  1416. (Just asking her alone won't be enough...)
  1417.  
  1418. -Prison Interior-
  1419.  
  1420. Ryou
  1421. This is troubling... I'm completely lost...
  1422. I said I've been past the entrance before, but I may have underestimated this...
  1423.

  1425.  
  1426. -Flashback at Hozumi Coffeehouse-
  1427.  
  1428. Shizuku
  1429. Ryou-san, did you write some coverage article today?
  1430.  
  1431. Ikumi
  1432. An article about taking a dare to go in Kamihama Prison. It's so scary~
  1433.  
  1434. Shizuku
  1435. Heeh...there's another prison in the basement of a place like that.
  1436.  
  1437. Ryou
  1438. Yep, it may sound like an urban legend, but it's all true.
  1439. And it looks like it was built just for a single criminal,
  1440. so the passage is grid-like with no lighting.
  1441.  
  1442. Ikumi
  1443. That's more like a dungeon or a labyrinth.
  1444.  
  1445. Ryou
  1446. Plus it's pitch black.
  1447.  
  1448. Shizuku
  1449. The only light is in the prison built somewhere within...
  1450.  
  1451. Ikumi
  1452. Yaan, Kumi's scared.
  1453. Ah, but with Kumi's power to win everyone's hearts,
  1454. the dungeon might light up with a sparkle.
  1455.  
  1456. Shizuku
  1457. ...When you get there, you'll become the helpless maid.
  1458.  
  1459. Ryou
  1460. She'd lose her signal there.
  1461.  
  1462. Ikumi
  1463. Hueeh, you think so...
  1464.  
  1465. -End Flashback-
  1466.  
  1467. Ryou
  1468. If Makino-chan was capable of such a thing,
  1469. I would have loved for her to do this.
  1470. (But there's no way I could drag her into here.)
  1471. (I wonder if should leave evidence behind so I can find my way back...)
  1472. Evidence...
  1473. (If Promised Blood also comes through here,)
  1474. (then they'd be making the shortest route...)
  1475. (There's no magic left behind...?)
  1476. For now I have no choice but to keep steadily exploring while protecting myself...
  1477.  
  1478. =====7=====
  1479.  
  1480. Ryou
  1481. There's no sign of magical power, nor any landmarks...
  1482. In that case, I'm gonna have to risk using my ability to find any scoop...
  1483.  
  1484. -Outside-
  1485.  
  1486. Hinano
  1487. Damn, that Ryou, hasn't she gotten her evidence yet...!?
  1488.  
  1489. Ao
  1490. If she entered that way, the entire basement is a labyrinth,
  1491. so it's in your best interest to withdraw before she gets cornered~
  1492.  
  1493. Hinano
  1494. If you're so worried about Ryou, why the hell would we withdraw!?
  1495.  
  1496. Urara
  1497. Then we have no choice but to finish you one by one.
  1498.  
  1499. Hinano
  1500. っ!
  1501.  
  1502. Ikumi
  1503. Hinano-san!
  1504.  
  1505. Urara
  1506. There, now you're all wrapped up!
  1507. Third sister, let's take care of them all at once!
  1508.  
  1509. Ao
  1510. Yeah! No more hesitating...!
  1511.  
  1512. Karin
  1513. That's not happening!
  1514.  
  1515. -Flashback of well-done Karin-

  1518. Aah...Uoo...

  1527. Easy mode... Easy game...!
  1528.  
  1529. Hinano
  1530. The restraints are off...nice save!
  1531.  
  1532. Karin
  1533. Hm, there is no evil deed that my scythe cannot cut!
  1534. But more importantly... Alina-senpai, help us out!
  1535.  
  1536. Alina
  1537. Alina is only interested in the Mirrors
  1538. and has nothing to do with Union, so if you want to fight, do it yourself.
  1539.  
  1540. Karin
  1541. How could you...!
  1542.  
  1543. Ao
  1544. Hey, if this were an FPS, looking away would give me a free headshot you know~?
  1545.  
  1546. Karin
  1547. Ah!
  1548.  
  1549. Ao
  1550. Ah, who!?
  1551.  
  1552. Kanagi
  1553. Izumi Kanagi.
  1554.  
  1555. Mitama
  1556. And Yakumo Mitama here.
  1557.  
  1558. Kanagi
  1559. Artist, are you all right?
  1560.  
  1561. Karin
  1562. Nagitan! Thanks yeah!
  1563.  
  1564. Kanagi
  1565. So it's true. Negotiations really did break down.
  1566.  
  1567. Hinano
  1568. Sorry... I didn't take stopping Ryou serious enough.
  1569.  
  1570. Kanagi
  1571. No, it seems our opponents here were already searching for the homes of mahou shoujo.
  1572. Either way, the negotiations would have broken down or become increasingly more difficult.
  1573.  
  1574. Mitama
  1575. However, that doesn't mean we intended to kill them either.
  1576.  
  1577. Kanagi
  1578. I don't want this grudge to swirl around like how the east and west used to.
  1579.  
  1580. Urara
  1581. ...Besides the Magius that doesn't want to fight, this makes five opponents.
  1582.  
  1583. Ao
  1584. They were able to close the gap a little, but there's still a chance to win here~
  1585.  
  1586. Mitama
  1587. You know it's only a matter of time before more Union reinforcements come, riight?
  1588.  
  1589. Ao
  1590. Kusu.
  1591. And you know my sister's on her way too, right~?
  1592.  
  1593. Hinano
  1594. Tch, Mitama... She's right about that...
  1595. The mahou shoujo we asked for help are getting caught up trying to get here.
  1596.  
  1597. Mitama
  1598. How could they...
  1599.  
  1600. -Rooftop-
  1601.  
  1602. Momoko
  1603. Damn, how'd they know we were comin'?
  1604.  
  1605. Rena
  1606. Hey you, you're in our way, so could you move it?
  1607.  
  1608. Hikaru
  1609. You're the one in our way.
  1610. And we've already heard the story. You can't play the victim card here.
  1611.  
  1612. Rena
  1613. Haa!?
  1614.  
  1615. Hikaru
  1616. It's cowardly to be moving behind our backs while whispering sweet nothings.
  1617.  
  1618. Sakuya
  1619. I even started to have faith in you guys.
  1620.  
  1621. Kaede
  1622. Um, you know, you're wrong. It was kind of an accident...
  1623.  
  1624. Sakuya
  1625. You expect us to trust your group when you have people causing accidents?
  1626.  
  1627. Kaede
  1628. M-maybe...but...
  1629.  
  1630. Hikaru
  1631. We don't need your excuses.
  1632.  
  1633. -In Battle-
  1634.  
  1635. Momoko
  1636. We may be blocked, but it'll be okay.
  1637. Someone will find a way to get to Kamihama Prison.
  1638.  
  1639. Hikaru
  1640. If you're talking 'bout Tamaki-san's group, you'd be better off giving up on 'em.
  1641.  
  1642. Momoko
  1643. So you've already arranged for them...

  1662. Promised Blood doesn't want everyone to get to the prison...

  1664. Yachiyo
  1665. At least we should be able to...
  1666.  
  1667. Yuna
  1668. We can't go any further, and neither can you...
  1669.  
  1670. Iroha
  1671. Kureha-san...
  1672.  
  1673. Yuna
  1674. The only one capable of getting evidence from the prison is that Midori Ryou.
  1675. Sorry, but she'll definitely be erased.
  1676.  
  1677. Iroha
  1678. You're wrong, it was a misunderstanding!
  1679.  
  1680. Tsuruno
  1681. That's right, she just happened to find it by chance while looking around.
  1682.  
  1683. Yuna
  1684. You closed the door to negotiations yourself, so let's stop with the pathetic excuses...?
  1685.  
  1686. Yachiyo
  1687. ...If we were to compromise, what would you have done?
  1688.  
  1689. Yuna
  1690. Instead of ceasing the slaughter of all mahou shoujo in Kamihama,
  1691. I was going to put them under Futatsugi and work them to death.
  1692.  
  1693. Iroha
  1694. .....
  1695.  
  1696. Tsuruno
  1697. The kind Kureha Yuna that Iroha-chan felt
  1698. doesn't have the capacity to love all mahou shoujo.
  1699.  
  1700. Yuna
  1701. Didn't I tell you that we're going to hell?
  1702. If not, then I'll show you how to live a life of damnation...
  1703. A way that's different from killing.

  1710. (Then, where does Promised Blood come and go from...)
  1711. .....
  1712. ――っ!?
  1713. Could it be this door...? It's relatively new...

  1730. From what I heard, I thought the former feathers were supposed to be weak...
  1731.  
  1732. Ikumi
  1733. We've changed a little since we were feathers...
  1734.  
  1735. PB Girl
  1736. Tch, this has become annoying now that the east has joined...
  1737.  
  1738. Kanagi
  1739. We may not be equal in number, but our true ability more than makes up for it.
  1740.  
  1741. -Street-
  1742.  
  1743. Ranka
  1744. How long does it take for the third sister to destroy a single wall?
  1745.  
  1746. Juri
  1747. We slipped by those Neo Magius guys,
  1748. so what the hell are they doing...
  1749.  
  1750. Ranka
  1751. Why don't we just sneak into the prison and pursue our target?
  1752.  
  1753. Juri
  1754. For sure, while they still haven't seen us.
  1755. Tch...this is bad timing...
  1756. Looks like they followed us from where the Kimochi was.
  1757.  
  1758. Sana
  1759. Haa...huu...we heard that...
  1760. Promised Blood is going after the people from the south, right...?
  1761.  
  1762. Ui
  1763. They think Union was doing something,
  1764. but I'm sure they're mistaken...
  1765.  
  1766. Ranka
  1767. Even if there was a mistake, we need to move, understand?
  1768.  
  1769. Sana
  1770. Then you are not going anywhere... We are going to stop you from getting to the prison...
  1771.  
  1772. Felicia
  1773. Forget that, we're gonna smash the hell outta these guys!
  1774.  
  1775. Ranka
  1776. Vicious animal. Don't take those words back now, okay?
  1777.  
  1778. Juri
  1779. Juri-sama loves makin' strong people well-done.
  1780.  
  1781. Felicia
  1782. Nuu...
  1783.  
  1784. Juri
  1785. What the hell, we don't have time to be playin' with you riiight noooow!
  1786.  
  1787. Felicia
  1788. What? Don't you run away from me!
  1789.  
  1790. Juri's Voice
  1791. This isn't the place to be getting fired up over a match, dumbass!
  1792.  
  1793. Felicia
  1794. Wha, I'm not a dumbass! I gotta 60 in Japanese the other day!
  1795.  
  1796. Sana
  1797. Calm down, Felicia-san! We need to chase afer them...!
  1798.  
  1799. Ranka
  1800. We have to protect our lifeline as a group,
  1801. so only the second sister is going.
  1802.  
  1803. Juri
  1804. HEY, THIRD SISTER!!
  1805. DON'T BE A WEAKLING WHEN WE NEED YOU!!
  1806.  
  1807. -Kamihama Prison (Outside)-

  1809. Juri's Voice
  1810. DON'T BE A WEAKLING!!

  1812. Ao
  1813. Nee-chan...
  1814. (This isn't the time for hesitation.)
  1815. (If we waste time, more help is going to come for them...)
  1816. As the third daughter, I've made my resolve. I will break through and create an opening...!
  1817.  
  1818. Ikumi
  1819. Kya!
  1820.  
  1821. Hinano
  1822. Ikumi!
  1823.  
  1824. Ikumi
  1825. I couldn't stop her from getting through...
  1826.  
  1827. Karin
  1828. This is where I make my stand!
  1829.  
  1830. Ao
  1831. That thing's too big, the delay is too long!
  1832.  
  1833. Karin
  1834. Uo!
  1835.  
  1836. Ao
  1837. See ya~
  1838.  
  1839. Karin
  1840. At this rate, they're going to get through...
  1841.  
  1842. Alina
  1843. Alina thinks you should just let them go.
  1844.  
  1845. Karin
  1846. Alina-senpai!
  1847.  
  1848. Alina
  1849. It's an emaajenshii as expected. We should make our esukeepu.
  1850.  
  1851. Karin
  1852. I can't! I!
  1853.  
  1854. Alina
  1855. The only one that can damage Alina's work is Alina ya know.
  1856.  
  1857. Karin
  1858. Au...
  1859.  
  1860. Ikumi
  1861. Karin-chan!
  1862.  
  1863. Hinano
  1864. Oi, Alina, you bastard!
  1865.  
  1866. Alina
  1867. As for the Mirrors, we'll come back and search for it another time.
  1868. Bai baai.
  1869.  
  1870. Hinano
  1871. Damn you!!
  1872.  
  1873. Ao
  1874. (Alright, just a little further.)
  1875. Ah...
  1876.  
  1877. Kanagi
  1878. Your subordinates have been taken care of, now it's your turn to yield!
  1879.  
  1880. Mitama
  1881. If you come any closer, I'll mess with your entire being.
  1882.  
  1883. Kanagi
  1884. Mu...!?
  1885.  
  1886. Urara
  1887. Ao-san, go on ahead!
  1888.  
  1889. Kanagi
  1890. Another one was still here!?
  1891.  
  1892. Ao
  1893. Thank you!
  1894. A little further...!
  1895.  
  1896. Ryou
  1897. Haa, finally out of there... Now to just get this thing developed...
  1898.  
  1899. Ao
  1900. She's already made it out...!
  1901.  
  1902. Ikumi's Voice
  1903. Ryou-chan, run!
  1904.  
  1905. Ryou
  1906. Eh, Makino-chan!?
  1907.  
  1908. Ao
  1909. That camera, and your life...! I'll cut them both down!
  1910.  
  1911. Juri
  1912. Third sister, let's crush her together!
  1913.  
  1914. Mifuyu
  1915. That...huu...will not happen...!
  1916.  
  1917. Juri
  1918. Shit, more backup...!? Why isn't Nee-san stopping them!?
  1919.  
  1920. Mifuyu
  1921. I heard about it...haa...so I had to take quite a detour...!
  1922.  
  1923. -In Battle-
  1924.  
  1925. Ao
  1926. (Now, I'm the only one who can stop Midori Ryou...!)
  1927. (I'm not letting you take that evidence home.)
  1928. (At the very least, I must break that camera...!)
  1929.  
  1930. Ryou
  1931. (A battle axe is a really dangerous weapon, but she swings it so fast!)
  1932. (If she keeps coming at me like this, I'm not going to be able to save it...!)
  1933. (Can I make it in time...I have to make it...! I have to use my bazooka at point-blank range...!)
  1934.  
  1935. Ao
  1936. YAAAAAAA!
  1937.  
  1938. Ryou
  1939. BRING IT OOOON!

  1944.  
  1945. Shizuku
  1946. (Ryou-san, you said you would be back again later.)
  1947. (Maybe she'll be here soon for an interview or something.)
  1948. (A lot of cats have shown up around here...)
  1949. It's time for today's cat diary...
  1950. Maybe I'll go take some pictures too...
  1951. .....
  1952. (Why do I...feel so uncertain...)
  1953. Ah, welcome. Are you with a group...!?
  1954.  
  1955. Shizuku's Voice
  1956. Otou-san, could you help me here?
  1957.  
  1958. [*Ring♪*]
  1959. [I have a request for everyone in Union.]
  1960. [Currently, the mahou shoujo of the south are being cornered by Promised Blood. If anyone sees this message, please help them.]
  1961. [Recently, we had talks of pooling all of our efforts together, and I know it's much earlier than expected, but I will be grateful for any help you can offer.]
  1962. [Thank you for your work.]
  1963.  
  1964. -Apartments-
  1965.  
  1966. Tsuruno
  1967. Haa...huu...
  1968. We managed to get away from Kureha Yuna, but are we going to make it in time...!?
  1969.  
  1970. Yachiyo
  1971. We have to believe...
  1972. And we need to be careful because she could still be right behind us!
  1973.  
  1974. Tsuruno
  1975. Iroha-chan, were you able to get in touch with the Tokime clan?
  1976.  
  1977. Iroha
  1978. Not at all.
  1979. Sana-chan told me she was able to contact Neo Magius,
  1980. but something may have happened over there...
  1981.  
  1982. Yachiyo
  1983. They may also be caught in a dangerous situation...
  1984.  
  1985. -Sakura Uwasa Area-
  1986.  
  1987. Nemu
  1988. Things are not going well at Kamihama Prison...
  1989.  
  1990. Touka
  1991. Thus, since we can't fight in their stupid battles,
  1992. Satori Kagome's decision to gather us here deserves a gold star.
  1993.  
  1994. Nemu
  1995. Yeah.
  1996. If we can make mahou shoujo known throughout the world, countless eyes will be on them.
  1997.  
  1998. Kagome
  1999. I think because the world of mahou shoujo is cut off from the rest of the world,
  2000. we have to make decisions using our own common sense
  2001. and fight without worrying about our surroundings.
  2002. But, if we're connected to the rest of the world, they will see that this situation is abnormal.
  2003.  
  2004. Nemu
  2005. But unless your words carry persuasiveness, you'll be rejected for speaking nonsense.
  2006.  
  2007. Touka
  2008. Persuasiveness...
  2009. Hmm...
  2010.  
  2011. Nemu
  2012. What's with you?
  2013.  
  2014. Touka
  2015. I'm wondering if I should invite someone.
  2016.  
  2017. Nemu
  2018. Are you acquainted with someone that fits that criteria?
  2019.  
  2020. Touka
  2021. She really hates me though, so I don't know if she would come.
  2022.  
  2023. Nemu
  2024. If Touka thinks we need someone, I think you should at least ask.
  2025. Personality aside, Touka's brain is something else.
  2026.  
  2027. Touka
  2028. Shut your meowth.
  2029. So, Ryou is coming here today, right? Assuming she survives.
  2030.  
  2031. Nemu
  2032. That's what I was trying to tell you. We're in trouble if she can't make it.
  2033.  
  2034. -Interview Recording-
  2035. Makino Ikumi
  2036.  
  2037. Ikumi
  2038. "Hawawa, Kumi is surprised that you came to see me~"
  2039. "Eh? Ah, so after this you're going to Hinano-san and Ryou-chan."
  2040. "So, this is about what I desire in the future, right?"
  2041. "Then, Kumi has already decided! It's to make boys and girls of all ages around the world go crazy over Kumi and make them kyun kyun!"
  2042. "Every time Kumi strikes a cute pose with a pop, or winks with a snap and a heart flies out, and every time Kumi sings with all my heart with a mic in hand, everyone will cheer up from Kumi's bubbly~ healing aura."
  2043. "Of course the stage won't just be at a maid cafe; Kumi wants a great big dome~"
  2044. "And then there's Yumi, the girl that exchanged dreams with Kumi as a customer~ And the stage effects will be handled by Hinano-san~ And Kumi's exclusive photographer will be Ryou-chan."
  2045. "I've...never really done much as a mahou shoujo, have I?"
  2046. "And in my personal life, Ryou-chan, who's four years younger than me, has always been more reliable. Even in the Wings of Magius, the Ryou-chan back then was a higher rank white feather."
  2047. "That's why, at least once, I want to be the best I can be in front of everyone, you know?"
  2048.  
  2049.
