  34. Itsuwa: Those are power generators.
  35. Itsuwa: District 22 is located underground, so it does more to generate power than the other districts.
  36.  
  37. Touma: You know your stuff.
  38. Itsuwa(edge): Um
  39. Itsuwa: For this mission.
  40. Touma: District 22 is in walking distance from my dorm, but I haven't been in forever.

  52.  
  53. Index: Wow!!
  54.

  134.  
  135. Mikoto: Tch.
  136. Index: "That idiot" is Touma, isn't it? What happened with him, Itsuwa?
  137. Index: They said on TV there are no coincidences in accidents.
  138.  
  139. 13
  140.  
  141. Mikoto: Do they...
  142. Mikoto: know about his lost memories?
  143.

  166.  
  167. 16
  168.  
  169. Touma: Over there.
  170.  
  171. Itsuwa: You're done bathing?
  172.  
  173. Touma: Yeah, it's pretty boring on your own.
  174.  
  175. Touma: What about you?
  176. Itsuwa: Yes, there was some trouble so we got out early.
  177.  
  178. Touma: Where's Index?
  179. Itsuwa: Checking out the samples in the food court.
  180.  
  181. 17
  182.  
  183. Touma: Then we know she won't wander off.
  184. Touma(small): I'll buy her a late-night snack later.
  185. Itsuwa: Um.
  186. Itsuwa: Could we got for a quick walk?
  187.  
  188. Itsuwa: Acqua of the Back still hasn't attacked.
  189. Itsuwa: That should be a good thing, but still.
  190. Touma: And I doubt we'd be lucky enough for him to be caught by the city's security.
  191.  
  192. 18
  193.  
  194. Touma: Seems weird going to a spa resort when God's Right Seat is after me.
  195. Itsuwa: It's fine.
  196.  
  197. Itsuwa: In fact, you need to continue on like normal at times like this.
  198. Itsuwa: Staying on your guard too much will only exhaust you, so you need to relax when you can.
  199.  
  200. Touma: So where are the other Amakusas?
  201. Touma: Like Tatemiya.
  202.  
  203. Itsuwa: Watching us from a distance I would think.
  204.  
  205. Itsuwa: If only the PRIESTESS could have been here.
  206.  
  207. Touma: You mean Kanzaki?
  208. Touma: Is she really that amazing?
  209. Itsuwa: Of course! She's a Saint!
  210. Itsuwa: She could solve any problem right away!!
  211.  
  212. 19
  213.  
  214. Touma: Oh, yeah. Acqua's a Saint too, isn't he?
  215.  
  216. Touma: So no help from Kanzaki, huh?
  217. Touma: But she's with the Anglicans too, so couldn't you ask for her help?
  218. Itsuwa: Well...
  219.  
  220. Itsuwa: Saints are a lot like nuclear weapons...
  221. Itsuwa: so they can't be sent out of the country for just anything.
  222. Itsuwa: It's a delicate issue.
  223.  
  224. Touma: Hmm.
  225. Touma(outside): Delicate, huh?
  226.  
  227. Touma: I'm not sure how to put this tactfully.
  228. Itsuwa: What is it?
  229.  
  230. 20
  231.  
  232. Touma: Doesn't Kanzaki dress weird?
  233.  
  234. Itsuwa: Um.
  235. Itsuwa: But.
  236. Itsuwa: She.
  237. Itsuwa: Weird how?
  238. Touma: Aren't you Amakusas experts at blending in?
  239. Touma: But the way she dresses is like asking to be seen.
  240. Touma: It's super lewd.
  241.  
  242. Itsuwa: D-don't call it that!!
  243. Itsuwa: That's only because an asymmetric design helps her put together spells...
  244. Itsuwa: so she isn't trying to show off her figure!!
  245.  
  246. Touma: Is your clothing meant to do that too?
  247. Itsuwa: I-it is.
  248. Itsuwa: Do I stand out?
  249. Itsuwa(small): Like her?
  250.  
  251. 21
  252.  
  253. Touma: No, not really.
  254.  
  255. AK: What do you think, Substitute Pontiff?
  256. Tatemiya: Hmm?
  257.  
  258. Tatemiya: Operation Late-Night Date, huh?
  259. Tatemiya: She's set the right mood at least.
  260. AK: I mean about Acqua of the Back.
  261.  
  262. 22
  263.  
  264. Tatemiya: Academy City has told us...
  265. Tatemiya: there's no sign of his arrival yet.
  266. AK: But you don't trust them?
  267.  
  268. Tatemiya: What I don't trust...
  269.  
  270. Tatemiya: is Academy City's security.
  271. Tatemiya: It also feels like they're intentionally hiding some information.
  272. Tatemiya: But which way did you mean?
  273.  
  274. Tatemiya: Besides.
  275. Tatemiya: Academy City, the Anglicans, and the Catholics are all plotting against each other over Kamijou Touma. It's weird.
  276.  
  277. AK: Substitute Pontiff.
  278. Tatemiya: Yeah, I know.
  279.  
  280. 23
  281.  
  282. Tatemiya: His presence has some value to us too.
  283. Tatemiya: He's saved our lives...
  284. Tatemiya: and he's also fought alongside us.
  285.  
  286. Tatemiya: But what is he to this city?
  287.  
  288. Tatemiya: What do the Anglicans...
  289. Tatemiya: and the Catholic God's Right Seat...
  290. Tatemiya: see in Kamijou Touma?
  291. Tatemiya: Is he really worth mobilizing those large organizations?
  292.  
  293. Tatemiya: I feel like there's some key fact that's still hidden from us.
  294.  
  295. 24
  296.  
  297. AK: Substitute Pontiff,
  298. AK: everyone's gone.
  299. Tatemiya: We messed up.
  300.  
  301. Tatemiya: That's a People Clearing Field!
  302.  
  303. 25
  304.  
  305. Touma: It's easy to forget we're underground.
  306. Itsuwa: I know.
  307.  
  308. Itsuwa: I know I can't let my guard down...
  309. Itsuwa: but we're alone.
  310. Itsuwa(edge): Wowww
  311.  
  312. Touma: But the lack of wind gives it away.
  313.  
  314. Itsuwa: When the AMAKUSAS moved to London...
  315. Touma: Hm?
  316.  
  317. Itsuwa: I was a little sad I wouldn't be able to see everyone in Japan right away.
  318. Itsuwa: The Anglicans have treated us well, though.
  319.  
  320. 26
  321.  
  322. Itsuwa: But...
  323. Itsuwa: I've started to think it's better this way.
  324. Itsuwa: It's...
  325.  
  326. Itsuwa: kind of like Orihime and Hikoboshi.
  327.  
  328. Touma: Is it?
  329. Touma(small): Can you see the milky way right now?
  330. Itsuwa: F-forget I said anything! Please!!
  331.  
  332. SFX: Shudder
