  11.  
  12. Etzali: What in the world!?
  13.  
  14. Xochitl: My body has...
  15. Xochitl: simply reached its limit.
  16. Xochitl: This must be the result of using a grimoire to make up for the skill I don't have.
  17. Xochitl: I suppose this was a learning experience.
  18.  
  19. Etzali: You don't mean...
  20.  
  21. 02
  22.  
  23. Etzali: YOU READ IT?
  24.  
  25. Xochitl: No.
  26. Xochitl: I DID MORE THAN THAT.
  27.  
  28. Xochitl: As an Aztec magician, you should understand.
  29. Xochitl: That ceremony lets you reach heaven by consuming human flesh.
  30.  
  31. Xochitl: So...
  32. Xochitl: the flesh cut from my body...
  33. Xochitl: is still connected to me by a spell line.
  34.  
  35. 03
  36.  
  37. Etzali: She dries her own flesh and spreads it around as a powder.
  38.  
  39. Etzali: That powder magically remains a part of her body, so she can move it like her own limbs.
  40. Etzali: Same for any weapons that powder touches.
  41.  
  42. Etzali: Is that the true form of the suicide spell?
  43.  
  44. Etzali: A spell that tears apart your own body will fail almost immediately!
  45. Etzali: Surely you understood that, Xochitl!!
  46.  
  47. Xochitl: I do not care.
  48.  
  49. 04
  50.  
  51. Xochitl: I can fulfill the organization's objective as long as I kill you before I run out of time.
  52.  
  53. Etzali: That's crazy!
  54. Etzali: The organization I know was cruel, but not this cruel!
  55.  
  56. Etzali: What happened?
  57. Etzali: This isn't right.
  58. Etzali: I doubt an ordinary spell or spiritual item could cause this.
  59.  
  60. 05
  61.  
  62. SFX: Heartbeat
  63.  
  64. Etzali: Gwwaaahh!
  65.  
  66. Etzali: Ahhhhhh!
  67.  
  68. SFX: Pant pant
  69. Etzali: I...was right.
  70. Etzali: It WAS that.
  71.  
  72. 06
  73.  
  74. Etzali: An original grimoire.
  75.  
  76. SFX: Throb throb
  77. Etzali: Was it a variation on the Calendar Stone?
  78.  
  79. Etzali: She fused with an original that defends against all attacks and prevents anyone from harming her!
  80. Etzali: No, she gained its power by becoming a part of it.
  81.  
  82. Etzali: This is too much for me.
  83. Etzali: Not even that Index can destroy these, so what is a mere magician like me supposed to do?
  84.  
  85. Etzali: I can't save Xochitl.
  86.  
  87. 07
  88.  
  89. Etzali: But still...
  90. Etzali: I won't let...
  91. Etzali: you die!
  92.  
  93. Etzali: If human power isn't enough...
  94. Etzali: I just have to borrow the original's power.
  95.  
  96. 08
  97.  
  98. Etzali: I will take control of that grimoire!!
  99.  
  100. SFX: Unravel
  101.  
  102. Etzali: No.
  103. Etzali: Not yet.
  104.  
  105. 09
  106.  
  107. Etzali: It's said originals search for someone who will spread their knowledge and display their power to them.
  108. Etzali: First, I will heal Xochitl.
  109.  
  110. Etzali: Let her die and I won't take over for her.
  111.

  119.  
  120. Awaki: I think...
  121. Awaki: the AIM Jammer is getting stronger.
  122.  
  123. Tsuchi: They're combining the power of more than one at once.
  124. Tsuchi: Musujime.
  125. Tsuchi: It would be best not to use your power.
  126. Tsuchi: A single mistake could cost you your life.
  127.  
  128. Tsuchi: Stand back and support me.
  129. Tsuchi: As best as you can.
  130. Awaki: You make it sound like I'm useless outside of my power.
  131.  
  132. Tsuchi: Looks like they're up here.
  133. Tsuchi: The special cells for rebels.
  134.  
  135. 12
  136.  
  137. Saku: An attack now?
  138. Saku: So it really is Group.
  139.  
  140. 13
  141.  
  142. Saku: This is a plastic explosive and an electric fuse.
  143.  
  144. Megumi: Saku!!
  145. Saku: No, Teshio.
  146. Saku: We have to use a hostage here.
  147.  
  148. Saku: The blast is directed through the door.
  149. Saku: Because your interference didn't give me time to fine-tune it.
  150. Saku: Who knows what will happen to the kid inside.
  151.  
  152. SFX: Crash crash crash
  153.  
  154. 14
  155.  
  156. Tsuchi: Control yourself, Musujime!
  157.  
  158. Saku: Musujime Awaki.
  159. Saku: You're that Move Point, huh?
  160.  
  161. Saku: Nice.
  162. Saku: That saves some time.
  163. SFX: Grin
  164. Saku: We can negotiate here.
  165.  
  166. Awaki: And if I refuse?
  167.  
  168. Saku: Hey, Group.
  169. Saku: Did you learn nothing from the 0930 Incident?
  170.  
  171. 15
  172.  
  173. Saku: We learned something.
  174.  
  175. Saku: I thought Aleister controlled every last part of this messed-up world...
  176. Saku: but that isn't the case.
  177. Saku: There are ways to escape his control and places outside his control.
  178.  
  179. Saku: We were trapped in Academy City until now, but that's starting to feel silly.
  180. Saku: First 0930 and now the Avignon riots.
  181. Saku: With this chance given to us...
  182. Saku: how could we not act?
  183.  
  184. Awaki: You shouldn't sound so proud of trampling on others to gain a new life.
  185.  
  186. Saku: Oh, really?
  187. Saku: All of humanity hopes to find a paradise beyond their current life.
  188.  
  189. 16
  190.  
  191. Megumi: You shouldn't...
  192. Megumi: take hostages.
  193.  
  194. Saku: Don't be ridiculous, Teshio!
  195. Saku: We're only getting started here!
  196. Megumi: The hostage was only meant to get Move Point to negotiate.
  197. Megumi: Using that bomb will only make her more stubborn.
  198.  
  199. Megumi: I never liked this idea.
  200. Megumi: I only agreed because you said it was a necessary part of the plan.
  201.  
  202. Saku: It is!! We have 38 people to work with, so we have to use this one now!
  203. Saku: Did you work so long in Anti-Skill you started empathizing with those kids!?
  204.  
  205. Saku: Get in my way and I'll kill you!!
  206.  
  207. 17

  209. SFX: Crack
  210.  
  211. Awaki: What are you doing?
  212.  
  213. Megumi: I apologize for him.
  214. SFX: Flutter
  215. Megumi: I won't...
  216. Megumi: use hostages.
  217.  
  218. 18
  219.  
  220. Megumi: But...
  221. Megumi: you will talk.
  222. SFX: Crack
  223. Megumi: After I heart you more directly.
  224.  
  225. 19
  226.  
  227. SFX: Wham
  228.  
  229. Tsuchi: That was...
  230. Tsuchi: an Anti-Skill arrest move?
  231.  
  232. 20
  233.  
  234. Megumi: It's my personal version.
  235. SFX: Slid...
  236. Megumi: Using that...
  237. Megumi: would end up killing kids.
  238.  
  239. SFX: Kick
  240.  
  241. SFX: Wham
  242.  
  243. 21

  245. SFX: Bam
  246.  
  247. Megumi: You don't need strange powers or tricks for...
  248. Megumi: professional work.
  249.  
  250. Megumi: You use...
  251. Megumi: a variety of basic tactics...
  252. Megumi: to crush the enemy.
  253.  
  254. 22
  255.  
  256. Megumi: Ready to tell me how to...
  257. Megumi: get into the Windowless Building?
  258.  
  259. Awaki: Why are you...
  260. Awaki: so intent on killing Aleister?
  261.  
  262. Megumi: I have experienced...
  263. Megumi: a fair amount of tragedy in this city.
  264. Megumi: I just wanted to ask Aleister...
  265. Megumi: if he had played a role in that.
  266.  
  267. 23
  268.  
  269. Megumi: That's all.
  270.  
  271. Awaki: And you'll just accept his answer?
  272.  
  273. Awaki: I was once obsessed with "the truth".
  274. Awaki: But.
  275. Awaki: Pursuing that didn't give me the peace of mind I wanted.
  276.  
  277. Megumi: Maybe so.
  278.  
  279. Awaki: Also, your plan won't take down Aleister.
  280. Awaki: Multiple simultaneous detonations from inside the building?
  281. Awaki: If that was enough, then any teleportation esper could kill him in his sleep.
  282.  
  283. 24
  284.  
  285. Megumi: True.
  286. Megumi: I doubt that will kill Aleister.
  287. Megumi: He is a true monster.
  288.  
  289. Megumi: But what about the life support system supporting him?
  290.  
  291. Megumi: I've heard there is no replacement for those devices.
  292. Awaki: It won't work.
  293.  
  294. Awaki: For one thing, that isn't a "Windowless Building".
  295.  
  296. Megumi: What?
  297.  
  298. Awaki: That's no more than speculation...
  299. Awaki: but I do know...
  300. Awaki: that Aleister's plan goes far beyond anything we are imagining.
  301.  
  302. 25
  303.  
  304. Awaki: He probably sees this entire planet as no more than a disposable tool.
  305.  
  306. Megumi: That's quite something...
  307.  
  308. SFX: Step
  309. Megumi: but it changes nothing for me.
  310.  
  311. Megumi: I will keep at it until I have that info.
  312. Megumi: So what will you do?
  313.  
  314. 26
  315.  
  316. Awaki: I can't use my power properly thanks to the AIM Jammers.
  317. Awaki: I'm not a good shot like Accelerator and I can't do hand-to-hand like Tsuchimikado.
  318.  
  319. Awaki: That's right.
  320.  
  321. 27
  322.  
  323. Awaki: I can never protect anyone if that's how I look at it.
  324.  
  325. SFX: Pop pop
  326.  
  327. Megumi: You're using it.
  328.  
  329. 28

  332. Awaki: Sorry, but I'm using everything I've got.

  379.  
  380. 35
  381.  
  382. Awaki: For now anyway.
  383.  
  384. Accel: You're late.
  385.  
  386. Tsuchi: We managed.
  387. Accel: You really did settle this, right?
  388.  
  389. Tsuchi: Okay, let's bet back.
  390.  
  391. 36
  392.  
  393. Tsuchi: Into the darkness.
  394.  
  395. Margin: They walk back into the darkness. With their teammates.
