  3. Sweet Sorrow
  4.  
  5. Ao
  6. Uu...I wonder...if I broke...the camera...
  7.  
  8. =====1=====
  9.  
  10. Ao
  11. (At the very least, I must break that camera...!)
  12.  
  13. Ryou
  14. (Can I make it in time...I have to make it...! I have to use my bazooka at point-blank range...!)
  15.  
  16. Ao
  17. YAAAAAAA!
  18.  
  19. Ryou
  20. BRING IT OOOON!
  21.  
  22. -Flashback-
  23.  
  24. Sakurako
  25. | Yes, we talked about volunteering, and Sensei talked to me about life. |
  26.  
  27. Hinano
  28. About life?
  29.  
  30. Sakurako
  31. | It gave me a reason to think about my life, and the way I live it. |
  32.  
  33. Hinano
  34. And did Sakurako come up with an answer?
  35.  
  36. Sakurako
  37. | Yes, my answer was that I want to leave a mark behind. |
  38. | One that will be left behind in everyone's hearts. |
  39.  
  40. Ryou
  41. .....
  42.  
  43. Sakurako
  44. | Ryou, were you listening just now? |
  45.  
  46. Ryou
  47. [I'm sure I didn't hear what Sakurako said, but now that I think about it, I can somehow remember what she was saying.]
  48. [I've taken so many photos and written so many articles, but I've always felt as if something was missing. I thought maybe this time I could finally take a picture I'd be proud of showing off.]
  49. [This will be the last mark that Midori-san will leave behind.]
  50. [But I am sorry, Makino-chan. I have to give up on Yumi's photo.]
  51.  
  52. -End-
  53.  
  54. Ikumi
  55. Ryou-chan!
  56. [Ryou-chan...? Ryou-chan...!]
  57. [.....Eh.]
  58. [No...you can't...why...]
  59. [Where... Where is Ryou-chan's soul gem...!?]
  60.  
  61. Iroha
  62. っ...Haa...haa...haa...no way...
  63.  
  64. Yachiyo
  65. Who did this...
  66.  
  67. Yuna
  68. It was my third sister...
  69.  
  70. Yachiyo
  71. っ...
  72.  
  73. Yuna
  74. Huhu.
  75.  
  76. Ui
  77. Haa...huu...Onee...chan...
  78.  
  79. Iroha
  80. Ui...we...didn't make it in time...
  81.  
  82. Sana
  83. Midori-san...
  84.  
  85. Felicia
  86. What is this...the hell is going on!!
  87.  
  88. Momoko
  89. Huu...haa... Did that...really just...
  90.  
  91. Kaede
  92. ...Ryou...san. Is she really dead...?
  93.  
  94. Sakuya
  95. I can tell just by looking at her. There's no sign of life anywhere.
  96.  
  97. Rena
  98. Don't screw with me! How can you say that so easily!?
  99.  
  100. Sakuya
  101. That's the kind of fighting we're used to.
  102.  
  103. Rena
  104. You're the...you're the ones that started all of this!
  105.  
  106. Ranka
  107. But wasn't it Kamihama that started it?
  108. Thanks to you, we've witnessed this scene many times.
  109.  
  110. Rena
  111. ――っ!?
  112.  
  113. Ao
  114. Huu...huu...っ...
  115.  
  116. Hikaru
  117. Ao-san.
  118.  
  119. Ao
  120. Hikaru... Is she...really dead...?
  121.  
  122. Hikaru
  123. When we lose our soul gem, us mahou shoujo die...
  124.  
  125. Ao
  126. ...I didn't mean to kill her,
  127. I just wanted to break her camera...
  128. That's...all I was thinking about...
  129.  
  130. Hikaru
  131. That won't change the results.
  132. Besides, we woulda had to bother with her later anyway.
  133. It's better you got to take her out here.
  134. What, why're your hands shaking?
  135.  
  136. Ao
  137. The sensation of the blade hitting her soul gem, the feel of it strongly resonating in my hands...
  138. It won't leave...
  139.  
  140. Hikaru
  141. Does that mean, Ao-san...that was the first time you've killed someone...?
  142.  
  143. Ikumi's Voice
  144. AAAAaaAAAHHHH!!
  145.  
  146. Ao
  147. ――っ!?
  148.  
  149. Ikumi
  150. [Weren't we going to free all mahou shoujo...? I thought the people of the east would finally be free of all the irrational things happening to them, that we finally wouldn't have to go through twice as much suffering...!]
  151. [Why...]
  152.  
  153. Hinano
  154. Calm down, Ikumi! Everything is my fault!
  155. If only I had listened to Yachiyo's and everyone's advice...
  156.  
  157. Kanagi
  158. ...At least...we got the evidence she risked her life for.
  159.  
  160. [*Smash! Smash!*]
  161.  
  162. Kanagi
  163. ――ッ!?
  164.  
  165. Yuna
  166. And now the camera has been crushed.
  167. Now no evidence is left behind, and the mahou shoujo that found it has vanished.
  168. This is the price she has paid for her underhanded actions...
  169.  
  170. Kanagi
  171. You bastard...!
  172.  
  173. [*Slap*]
  174.  
  175. Yuna
  176. っ!
  177.  
  178. Mifuyu
  179. We have also struggled through conflicts between mahou shoujo...
  180. If you have been through the same as us...
  181. Then please do not walk all over the soul of someone that died...!
  182.  
  183. Mitama
  184. This is no different than when the east and west fought...
  185.  
  186. Kanagi
  187. We haven't grown at all...have we...
  188.  
  189. Ikumi
  190. [Ryou-chan...]
  191. [Ryou-chan...Ryou-chan...]
  192.  
  193. -In Battle-
  194.  
  195. Ikumi
  196. [AAaAAAH!!]
  197.  
  198. Yuna
  199. That sorrow is only a fraction of what we've felt.
  200.  
  201. -End Battle-
  202.  
  203. =====2=====
  204.  
  205. Ikumi
  206. っ...Uu...Ku...
  207.  
  208. Urara
  209. っ...My arm got caught...
  210.  
  211. Sakuya
  212. That looks like it hurts. I'll treat it later...
  213.  
  214. Ranka
  215. We can't deal with her if she's lost all reasoning like this...
  216.  
  217. Ao
  218. .....
  219.  
  220. Hikaru
  221. This wasn't Ao-san's fault. What happened was bounda happen.
  222.  
  223. Juri
  224. For sure.
  225. This is because of the seeds that Union has sown.
  226.  
  227. Yuna
  228. Curse yourselves for moving your pieces behind our backs.
  229. Now that the evidence has been erased, we have no business here.
  230. With that, goodbye.
  231.  
  232. Kanagi
  233. You think you can just take your leave after saying a few words?
  234.  
  235. Momoko
  236. Things are bad after this accident, but we can't let everything get even worse.
  237.  
  238. Rena
  239. Rena also wants to settle this and listen to everyone's circumstances...
  240.  
  241. Felicia
  242. But they're all fine just standin' over there!
  243.  
  244. Yachiyo
  245. We've fallen into the last situation we'd ever want to be in.
  246.  
  247. Iroha
  248. Everyone was supposed to join hands, but it became the exact opposite...
  249.  
  250. Tsuruno
  251. Our last gamble ended up failing...
  252.  
  253. Iroha
  254. Yeah...
  255.  
  256. Ikumi
  257. .....
  258.  
  259. Hinano
  260. Ikumi...?
  261.  
  262. Ikumi
  263. I can hear something...!
  264.  
  265. Ui
  266. Me too...
  267.  
  268. Juri
  269. What crap are you talking about now...
  270. Nee-san, we need to get the hell out of here. It's gonna get dangerous if we stick around.
  271.  
  272. Yuna
  273. Yes, I know.
  274. This is...!
  275.  
  276. Hikaru
  277. A Kimochi barrier...
  278. Then this thing's what they were hearin'...!
  279.  
  280. Ui
  281. A Kimochi's voice...?
  282.  
  283. Hinano
  284. Do you know what it's saying...?
  285.  
  286. Ikumi
  287. Yeah...
  288. .....
  289. [I can't help but cry, I can't help but tremble. Everyone was together as one, but they have all disappeared, and I am left all alone.]
  290.  
  291. Ui
  292. [I won't move until every gets here. I hide and hold my breath. Even after strangers shout out to me while searching about, clawing everyone they go, I will not come out. I am all alone and not needed, anyway...]
  293.  
  294. Ikumi
  295. [If you deny this, then bring everyone to the northeast where I wait.]
  296.  
  297. Ui
  298. [If that is not possible, then I will not move from here unless I experience sorrow greater than I have ever known.]
  299.  
  300. Kimochi
  301. ∵ゥゥ_ゥ―アァアアッ_!!
  302.  
  303. Ui
  304. I couldn't find this Kimochi
  305. because it was looking for intense sorrow...?
  306.  
  307. Ikumi
  308. .....
  309.  
  310. Hinano
  311. Then, you're saying it appeared because it was drawn to Ikumi's sorrow...?
  312.  
  313. Ui
  314. It might be...
  315.  
  316. Hikaru
  317. Hikaru doesn't care much for your theories... This thing's magic is overwhelmin'...
  318.  
  319. Ao
  320. To cause so much sadness, I had to do something I can't ever take back...?
  321.  
  322. Hikaru
  323. Ahh damn! Ao-san, get it together!
  324.  
  325. Juri
  326. Horse, you can't rely on Sister right now. You're hunting with Juri-sama here.
  327.  
  328. Ranka
  329. Before we make our escape, I want to bring home a souvenir.
  330.  
  331. Juri
  332. Read my mind.
  333.  
  334. Sakuya
  335. But, if we attack it together with Union, we might be able to defeat it...
  336. I'm breaking out in a terrible cold sweat...
  337.  
  338. Yuna
  339. Either way Union is going to challenge us, so let's snatch it...
  340.  
  341. Mifuyu
  342. Why did the Kimochi of sorrow have to have the strongest magic power?
  343.  
  344. Kanagi
  345. Maybe this is the way we appear to live in Kamihama.
  346.  
  347. Mitama
  348. You may not be wrong about that.
  349.  
  350. -In Battle-
  351.  
  352. Rena
  353. No matter what...we can't let Promised Blood take it...!
  354.  
  355. Momoko
  356. Kaede, can you make it...!?
  357.  
  358. Kaede
  359. Yeah....sniffle...
  360. We can't let them take the Kimochi stone...I feel so sorry for Ryou-chan...!
  361.  
  362. Iroha
  363. Ikumi-san...
  364.  
  365. Ikumi
  366. I'm sorry, Iroha-chan...
  367. If we had just stopped Ryou-chan you could have kept the negotiations...
  368. And...her life...
  369.  
  370. Iroha
  371. Please don't apologize...
  372. Instead, Ikumi-san, please be the one to defeat this Kimochi...!
  373.  
  374. Ikumi
  375. Me...?
  376.  
  377. Iroha
  378. Because this is what Midori-san called out with her life.
  379.  
  380. Ikumi
  381. Yeah...okay...
  382.  
  383. -End Battle-
  384.  
  385. Kimochi
  386. ∵ヒッ_ウゥ ̄ァァ―アン!!
  387.  
  388. Hikaru
  389. っ, guuu!
  390. Gu...cough-...
  391.  
  392. Kimochi
  393. ∵グスッ_フゥ―!!
  394.  
  395. Yuna
  396. Hikaru!
  397. That wound isn't too deep.
  398.  
  399. Hikaru
  400. Even though the horse is the one that should be supportin' Yuna-san, Hikaru's too weak...
  401.  
  402. Yuna
  403. No...this one's power is much greater than the others...
  404.  
  405. Mitama
  406. Kanagi, I made some temporary adjustments!
  407. Strike the Kimochi, then connect to Ikumi-san!
  408.  
  409. Kanagi
  410. You're a savior, Yakumo.
  411. My discipline is quite strict...
  412. HaaAAH!
  413.  
  414. Kimochi
  415. ∵ァア―!?!?
  416. ∵ウァア_―ッン!
  417.  
  418. Kanagi
  419. Na, this is a surprise.
  420. I was aiming for your soft side, but there's no reaction.
  421.  
  422. Momoko
  423. Kanagi-san, we're gonna keep hittin' the same place as you!!
  424.  
  425. Kanagi
  426. Togame? I'll leave it to you!
  427.  
  428. Momoko
  429. Concentrate on its side and hit it!
  430.  
  431. Rena
  432. You don't have to tell Rena!
  433.  
  434. Kaede
  435. Please, fall dooown!
  436.  
  437. Kimochi
  438. ∵ヒッ_ァ ̄ァ…!?
  439.  
  440. Kaede
  441. We did it...!
  442. Ah...
  443.  
  444. Mifuyu
  445. Do not give up! There is still a chance to connect!
  446. I will let you dream a little!
  447.  
  448. Kaede
  449. Mifuyu-san!
  450.  
  451. Kimochi
  452. ∵ゥゥ_ウ…アゥ―
  453.  
  454. Mifuyu
  455. No way... It recovered from the hallucination so quickly...!
  456.  
  457. Kimochi
  458. ∵グゥ_ゥ ̄ォォ―!!
  459.  
  460. Kaede
  461. Mifuyu-san...!
  462.  
  463. Mifuyu
  464. u...my apologies. All I could do was...shield you...
  465.  
  466. Momoko
  467. Kuu...just that one attack was too much... Rena, are you okay...?
  468.  
  469. Rena
  470. Crap... Rena's shoulder almost got dislocated...
  471.  
  472. Momoko
  473. Seriously...?
  474. Sorry, Yachiyo-san... We couldn't connect to Ikumi-san...!
  475. It's pretty bad over here.
  476.  
  477. Kimochi
  478. ∵グッ_ウウ―!!
  479.  
  480. Momoko
  481. That was...!
  482.  
  483. Yachiyo
  484. ~ I'm sorry, Momoko. It went after me before I could get out of the way. ~
  485.  
  486. Felicia
  487. ~ Up 'til now these things were as strong as trash... ~
  488.  
  489. Sana
  490. ~ Promised Blood is also struggling... ~
  491.  
  492. Tsuruno
  493. ~ At this rate, gu...cough...are we going to be wiped out...? ~
  494.  
  495. Iroha
  496. (We're being attacked by the sorrow of dead mahou shoujo that fill Kamihama...)
  497. (We're still in the middle of trying to be free...)
  498. (I have to keep fighting until the light of possibility goes out...)
  499. [I will never give up!]
  500. Eh...
  501.  
  502. =====3=====
  503.  
  504. Iroha
  505. Eh...
  506. This is...
  507.  
  508. Kimochi
  509. ∵ハッ ̄アハッ―フフフッ!!
  510.  
  511. Iroha
  512. It's you again...?
  513. What's wrong? I'm not wasting my magic power this time...?
  514. Ah, but, your companion...maybe it's because that Kimochi is being defeated...
  515.  
  516. Kimochi
  517. ∵いヒッ_ふふッ?
  518.  
  519. Iroha
  520. Yeah, it's frustrating... I feel so worthess...
  521. I said I wanted to join hands, but this is the result,
  522. so now I want Ikumi-san to defeat that Kimochi...
  523.  
  524. Kimochi
  525. ∵ひフフッ― ̄ニッヒ…
  526.  
  527. Iroha
  528. It's true that Midori-san and her group moved on their own, but...
  529. But, that's just it. It's because all of my words and ideas
  530. just don't hold any persuasion...
  531. It's not that I keep Union together all on my own,
  532. but if I could have just been stronger and had a better mindset...
  533. っ...u...
  534. Midori-san...you didn't...have to die...
  535.  
  536. Kimochi
  537. ∵アッハ ̄うふふっ…
  538.  
  539. Iroha
  540. Yeah, right... That's why I want to at least get it...
  541. It's all that she left behind... So I have to get it...!
  542. That Kimochi isn't trying to hurt Ikumi-san at all, right...?
  543. But even then, we couldn't get her the chance she needed...
  544.  
  545. Kimochi
  546. ∵ふっ、アハッ―_
  547.  
  548. Iroha
  549. You're going to help me again?
  550.  
  551. Kimochi
  552. ∵イッヒ_にフフッ―
  553.  
  554. Iroha
  555. Thank you.
  556. Your friend...if that Kimochi is okay with Ikumi-san,
  557. then I will let her defeat it...
  558.  
  559. Ui
  560. Onee-chan...? What's with this sudden change...
  561.  
  562. Sana
  563. And that incredible magic power... What is going on...
  564.  
  565. Tsuruno
  566. Could it be, her Kimochi...?
  567.  
  568. Yachiyo
  569. She borrowed its power...?
  570.  
  571. Iroha
  572. Yes, the Kimochi in my bracelet is lending me its power.
  573. Now, I'm sure I won't be defeated by the Kimochi of sorrow.
  574.  
  575. -In Battle-
  576.  
  577. Yuna
  578. Union's guard is down...
  579. If Ranka and Sakuya attack the legs, can you knock the Kimochi off balance?
  580. When it falls down, Juri and I can go over to the side that Union was focusing on.
  581.  
  582. Ranka
  583. Okay, don't you miss, Track Club.
  584.  
  585. Sakuya
  586. You're the one that'll be sorry for being too slow.
  587.  
  588. Juri
  589. Aight then, Promised Blood. Let's hit it with an all-out attack?
  590. Wha...
  591.  
  592. Iroha
  593. I'll connect to Ikumi before Promised Blood!
  594.  
  595. Ikumi
  596. Iroha-chan...!?
  597.  
  598. Iroha
  599. I'll explain later! For now, get ready to follow-up!
  600.  
  601. Ikumi
  602. Okay...!
  603. (This sorrow is mine and mine alone... So, I will definitely finish it myself...)
  604.  
  605. -End Battle-
  606.  
  607. Ikumi
  608. っ, huu... I got it...Ryou-chan...
  609.  
  610. Iroha
  611. .....
  612.  
  613. Yuna
  614. I never thought you could draw out the Kimochi's power in a fight...
  615. ...Now that all eight stones have been gathered, all that's left is fighting for them...
  616.  
  617. Hinano
  618. That's it...?
  619. Someone just died, and that's all you have to say...?
  620.  
  621. Juri
  622. We don't need to hear it from someone that tried to trap us.
  623. This is the end of the fight that you wanted.
  624.  
  625. Ikumi
  626. .....
  627.  
  628. Kanagi
  629. Miyako, I understand how you feel, but this isn't a fight where we can pass the blame...
  630.  
  631. Mitama
  632. Kanagi, to say it like that...
  633.  
  634. Hinano
  635. No, it's all right, Mitama. Kanagi is right...
  636.  
  637. Mifuyu
  638. But, this is not how we wanted things to end up...
  639.  
  640. Iroha
  641. We're going to have to move how Kyubey expected us to...
  642.  
  643. Tsuruno
  644. We have to hurt each other, let our doppels out, and be guinea pigs to make food for the universe...
  645.  
  646. Yachiyo
  647. But we will fight with everything we have to avoid a worst-case scenario.
  648.  
  649. Yuna
  650. Then it's the same as us. We're not going to hold back as long as we're competing.
  651.  
  652. Ui
  653. Then, we can only fight now...
  654.  
  655. Yuna
  656. And now, I'm going to make it definitive for you.
  657.  
  658. Ui
  659. Defin...itive...?
  660.  
  661. =====4=====
  662.  
  663. Yachiyo
  664. But we will fight with everything we have to avoid a worst-case scenario.
  665.  
  666. Yuna
  667. Then it's the same as us. We're not going to hold back as long as we're competing.
  668.  
  669. Ui
  670. Then, we can only fight now...
  671.  
  672. Yuna
  673. And now, I'm going to make it definitive for you.
  674.  
  675. Ui
  676. Defin...itive...?
  677.  
  678. Yuna
  679. As Nanami Yachiyo said, we don't want Kamihama to become united.
  680. So to start, why don't I show you how we intend to thin out Union members,
  681. since one has conveniently died alone anyway...?
  682. Besides, it's about time for our preparations to be complete.
  683.  
  684. Felicia
  685. What do you mean by thin out...? What are you plannin' on doing...!?
  686.  
  687. Tsuruno
  688. You're going to show us...right now...?
  689. Don't tell me, Sakuya-chan!
  690.  
  691. Sakuya
  692. As I would expect from Yui-san. You already know since you're so smart.
  693.  
  694. Iroha
  695. Tsuruno-chan, what did she mean?
  696.  
  697. Sana
  698. What is Promised Blood going to do...?
  699.  
  700. Yachiyo
  701. Rather, it's more what have they already done...
  702.  
  703. Tsuruno
  704. Where all the mahou shoujo in Kamihama live and what they do every day...
  705.  
  706. Kanagi
  707. That information is already available in the east, so that means you can assassinate us any time?
  708.  
  709. Mitama
  710. They were doing something like that...
  711.  
  712. Iroha
  713. Sakuya-san, you said you wouldn't let them kill anyone.
  714.  
  715. Sakuya
  716. There's been a misunderstanding, Tamaki-san.
  717. I only said I didn't want anyone killed that I know.
  718. I don't recall ever mentioning anything about strangers.
  719.  
  720. Iroha
  721. っ...
  722.  
  723. Kaede
  724. We have to hurry and let everyone know, Iroha-chan!
  725.  
  726. Rena
  727. That's right, don't just stand there, message everyone!
  728.  
  729. Momoko
  730. If that would be enough to avoid this, we wouldn't even have to break the news...
  731.  
  732. Yuna
  733. That's right.
  734.  
  735. Juri
  736. So sorry, but Juri-sama's side is gonna be contacting everyone first.
  737.  
  738. Momoko
  739. That smartphone...
  740.  
  741. Juri
  742. One send button, and it's goodbye.
  743. Even if you contact them all, some won't even notice.
  744. Though, how many are even gonna survive such a quick attack?
  745.  
  746. Iroha
  747. STOP IT!
  748.  
  749. Yuna
  750. We were going to stop once the negotiations were over.
  751.  
  752. Juri
  753. And sent.
  754.  
  755. ---
  756.  
  757. Shizuku
  758. Everyone is rushing to get to the prison...
  759. Please, let me make it in time...
  760. Ryou-san...!
  761. Who...!?
  762. This is...a barrier...? I thought I saw someone, but...
  763.  
  764. -In Battle-
  765.  
  766. Shizuku
  767. Now that I can see it closely, it looks a little different from a witch's barrier...
  768. It's like what I felt just now was a mahou shoujo's magic power...
  769.  
  770. -End Battle-
  771.  
  772. Iroha
  773. A Kimochi's barrier...?
  774.  
  775. Yachiyo
  776. But all of the stones have been collected. Could there be another Kimochi...?
  777.  
  778. Felicia
  779. Then, you're sayin' that Kyubey was lyin'!?
  780.  
  781. Sana
  782. He said there were exactly eight...
  783.  
  784. Tsuruno
  785. But, I have a feeling that Kyubey wouldn't lie about that though...
  786.  
  787. Little Kyubey
  788. Mokyuu...
  789.  
  790. Iroha
  791. Little Kyubey?
  792.  
  793. Ui
  794. I think I'm feeling what Little Kyubey is feeling...
  795.  
  796. Iroha
  797. What are you feeling...?
  798.  
  799. Ui
  800. Various reactions from Kimochi...
  801. I can feel the magical power of every Kimochi in this barrier...
  802.  
  803. Yuna
  804. .....
  805. If what Tamaki Ui says is true, does this mean the Kimochi are coming out?
  806.  
  807. Ao
  808. ...Maybe something happened once we collected all eight.
  809.  
  810. Hikaru
  811. Ao-san, you alright...?
  812.  
  813. Ao
  814. I don't know...
  815.  
  816. Juri
  817. Your mind's a mess, you gotta be tired.
  818.  
  819. Ui
  820. Kyaa...!!
  821.  
  822. Momoko
  823. These gems, are these the Kimochi stones...?
  824.  
  825. Rena
  826. You mean collecting them all is seriously making them come back...?
  827.  
  828. _― ̄ ̄___―_
  829. ――_ ̄__ ̄ ̄―
  830.  
  831. Kaede
  832. Fuyu...there's so many different voices blending together... It's creeping me out...
  833.  
  834. Mitama
  835. Ui-chan, Little Kyubey, you understand what they're saying, right?
  836.  
  837. Kanagi
  838. We wouldn't be able to understand what Little Kyubey is saying anyway.
  839. Ui-kun, can you translate?
  840.  
  841. Ui
  842. Y-yeah...
  843. Hey, all of you Kimochi! Calm down!
  844. If you just tell me what to say, I'll tell everyone!
  845.  
  846. …_―――― ̄ ̄ ̄_
  847.  
  848. Ui
  849. Yeah...take your time...
  850. .....
  851.  
  852. ___ ̄ ̄ ̄―――__…
  853.  
  854. Ui
  855. [Just like how you mahou shoujo defeat the Kimochi to have us accompany you, we Kimochi also choose our mahou shoujo and decide who accompany us.]
  856. [However, now you mahou shoujo are grouped together by purpose, and not as individuals. Furthermore, until now you had been searching for us, but we have forseen that there would be conflict.]
  857. [Therefore, in order to determine who we accept, we have narrowed down and chosen those who will join the contest.]
  858. [Those who are present now, and the mahou shoujo that will hear us elsewhere may continue to fight. We will judge and choose who will be admitted based on the results.]
  859. [If those who our rules do not apply to try to fight or take actions against this matter, we will take measures to separate them into another barrier.]
  860.  
  861. Ui
  862. It waits for our return. It is also where we want to return to.
  863. This is Eve's judgement...
  864. They're gone...
  865.  
  866. Yachiyo
  867. You mean they were balancing out our capabilities...?
  868.  
  869. Tsuruno
  870. Now I really feel like we're being toyed with, but I think we might be saved now.
  871.  
  872. Yuna
  873. ...You...are really lucky.
  874.  
  875. Juri
  876. Just as we got all of that set up, and I get contacted that everyone's been swallowed by that barrier.
  877.  
  878. Ranka
  879. Seriously, what was the point of us wasting all that time transferring schools...?
  880.  
  881. Sakuya
  882. All of that preparation just for our killing move to backfire. What a waste of effort and money.
  883.  
  884. Iroha
  885. Everyone is safe...
  886.  
  887. Juri
  888. How sickening...
  889.  
  890. Yuna
  891. Second sister, calm yourself...
  892. The first thing we must do is find out who was chosen.
  893.  
  894. Juri
  895. ...So we're done today?
  896.  
  897. Sakuya
  898. Then, I will take Hikaru and the third sister to the traveling adjuster
  899. so we can heal any injuries we can.
  900.  
  901. Ikumi
  902. Wait...!
  903.  
  904. Ao
  905. っ...
  906.  
  907. Kanagi
  908. You can't...Makino-kun...
  909.  
  910. Juri
  911. Lemme show you how it's done.
  912.  
  913. Ikumi
  914. .....
  915.  
  916. Juri
  917. If you go over to their side, you're gonna find yourself like her sooner than ya think.
  918. Juri-sama's mahou shoujo ride the thin line between life and death.
  919.  
  920. Ikumi
  921. That's because you're from Futatsugi... You can't die...so easily...!
  922.  
  923. Ranka
  924. It's only natural for friends to become enemies in Futatsugi...
  925. If you don't come at me with the intent to kill, then I'll kill you.
  926.  
  927. -Flashback-
  928.  
  929. Ranka
  930. If possible, it would be safer to work together with other mahou shoujo...
  931.  
  932. Momoko
  933. In that case, if you ever find yourself in trouble, give us a call.
  934. We'll help ya.
  935.  
  936. Ranka
  937. You're a lifesaver.
  938.  
  939. Rena
  940. Ah, why don't you come join "Kamihama Magia Union," Ranka?
  941.  
  942. -End Flashback-

  948.  
  949. Mifuyu
  950. It seems that Promised Blood has completely withdrawn...
  951.  
  952. Hinano
  953. Choosing who gets to fight, huh...
  954. Wonder if the results would've been different had we gotten here earlier...
  955.  
  956. Ikumi
  957. No, Ryou-chan is so kind that she would have been chosen for sticking her neck out anyways.
  958. I don't think anything would have changed. Don't you think so too, Mifuyu-san?
  959.  
  960. Mifuyu
  961. That's right.
  962. When she was a part of the Wings of Magius, she was quite the radical,
  963. but she also helped Ikumi-san and Shizuku-san escape...
  964.  
  965. Ikumi
  966. Yeah, that was how she was.
  967. Sniffle...Kanagi-san...
  968.  
  969. Kanagi
  970. Mm, I understand what you want to say.
  971.  
  972. Ikumi
  973. Ryou-chan...was a child of the east...so please take care of her...
  974.  
  975. Kanagi
  976. I will... It's been a long time since I've had to perform my duty...
  977.  
  978. Iroha
  979. .....
  980.  
  981. Ui
  982. .....
  983.  
  984. Kanagi
  985. Tamaki?
  986.  
  987. Iroha
  988. It would be a pity to have her go home with injuries, so...
  989.  
  990. Ui
  991. Yeah...
  992.  
  993. Felicia
  994. Hu, uu...
  995.  
  996. Sana
  997. Felicia-san...
  998.  
  999. Felicia
  1000. I don't get it, but...she just died all of a sudden...
  1001. I...couldn't save her in time... I feel...terrible...
  1002.  
  1003. Sana
  1004. Yeah...sob...
  1005.  
  1006. Tsuruno
  1007. .....
  1008.  
  1009. Yachiyo
  1010. It's been some time since we've had to do this...
  1011.  
  1012. Momoko
  1013. I can't ever get used to it...
  1014.  
  1015. Mitama
  1016. Yachiyo-san.
  1017.  
  1018. Yachiyo
  1019. It's about time to take Midori-san back, right?
  1020.  
  1021. Mitama
  1022. Yes, but before that, there's something I didn't tell you before...
  1023. I was going to tell you the last time you came to the adjuster shop, but...
  1024.  
  1025. Yachiyo
  1026. It's something serious?
  1027.  
  1028. Mitama
  1029. If we're not careful...
  1030.  
  1031. Yachiyo
  1032. Let's hear it.
  1033.  
  1034. Mitama
  1035. Recently, rumors have been spreading in the east that could divide the west and east again...
  1036.  
  1037. Yachiyo
  1038. How so...?
  1039.  
  1040. Mitama
  1041. First, the reason we couldn't find Promised Blood's base
  1042. is because there's talks that the mahou shoujo of the east are colluding.
  1043.  
  1044. Yachiyo
  1045. If you compared it to our current situation, you'd know that is a lie, though...
  1046.  
  1047. Mitama
  1048. But, there's now talks that a mahou shoujo from the west is the one spreading these rumors.
  1049.  
  1050. Yachiyo
  1051. Eh...?
  1052.  
  1053. Mitama
  1054. There's a rumor that the west is looking down on the east, and trying to take over the entirety of Kamihama.
  1055.  
  1056. Momoko
  1057. Sorry to butt in, but that to be some other group.
  1058.  
  1059. Tsuruno
  1060. Yeah, I think so too. The source of these rumors can't be from a Kamihama girl.
  1061.  
  1062. Mitama
  1063. Yes...I didn't think so either, so that's why I never brought it up.
  1064.  
  1065. Momoko
  1066. So you're thinkin' it's different now...?
  1067.  
  1068. Yachiyo
  1069. Well...the situation has certainly changed...
  1070.  
  1071. Tsuruno
  1072. Because Ryou-chan is...
  1073.  
  1074. Mitama
  1075. Until now, Kanagi has been secretly putting out fires,
  1076. but if one person dies, the whole situation may change.
  1077.  
  1078. Yachiyo
  1079. っ, a negative chain reaction... We do need to be careful, then...
  1080.  
  1081. Iroha
  1082. .....Ah.
  1083. I need to contact Shizuka-chan's group and let them know we don't need them here anymore...
  1084. ...sniffle.

  1098.  
  1099. Shizuka
  1100. Even if you're a diviner, she won't be back to how she was!
  1101. Recovering consumes magic power, so add the soul of an evil spirit!
  1102.  
  1103. Livia
  1104. Are you tryin'a say grief seed!?
  1105. If that's what ya mean, then give her all ya want!
  1106. The effects of lettin' out doppels has already been proven by Hiiragi Nemu!
  1107. Honestly, I just finished all my business, and this mess happens...
  1108.  
  1109. Yozuru
  1110. Sudachi, adjust the remaining people outside that have minor injuries.

  1116. Shizuka...chan...
  1117.  
  1118. Shizuka
  1119. You're okay, Charu.
  1120. When I found you in the village, you were falling apart, weren't you?
  1121. You're still recovering, so you'll have to endure it overnight.
  1122.  
  1123. Asahi
  1124. If you want to, it's possible for mahou shoujo to block out the pain.
  1125.  
  1126. Chiharu
  1127. Gu, it's...fine...

  1141. Shizuka, you've been getting messages for some time now.
  1142.  
  1143. Shizuka
  1144. But, at a time when Charu's like this...
  1145.  
  1146. Sunao
  1147. It may be something important. Besides, Livia-san is here too...
  1148.  
  1149. Shizuka
  1150. Okay...
  1151. .....
  1152. It can't be...
  1153.  
  1154. Sunao
  1155. What's wrong...?
  1156.  
  1157. Shizuka
  1158. Union's Midori Ryou...was killed by Promised Blood...
  1159.  
  1160. Sunao
  1161. Eh...
  1162.  
  1163. Livia
  1164. .....
  1165.  
  1166. Chiharu
  1167. Sorry...it's because of me...that we couldn't go help, so...
  1168.  
  1169. Shizuka
  1170. Don't be sorry, Chiharu. This was something that couldn't be helped...
  1171.  
  1172. Asahi
  1173. Honestly, even if they had asked us to help, it would've been impossible given the circumstances.
  1174.  
  1175. Chiharu
  1176. I should...have gone...
  1177.  
  1178. Asahi
  1179. With Chiharu-dono being severely injured and in this state, if you had chosen to go to Union...
  1180. You would have lost all trust with the head family, even if you're with the branch family...
  1181.  
  1182. Chiharu
  1183. But...
  1184.  
  1185. Shizuka
  1186. It's all right.
  1187. I made the decision in the village that I would put Tokime first in my mind.
  1188. Besides, we haven't been going forward with dissolving our alliance with Union...
  1189. So now was a good opportunity...

  1191. Sunao
  1192. Shizuka...
  1193.  
  1194. Shizuka
  1195. So even if we were able to go at that time, it was better that we did not.
  1196.

  1199. -Flashback (Container Terminal)-
  1200.  
  1201. Shizuka
  1202. I would like to go aid Union,
  1203. so if you have business with me, make it quick.
  1204.  
  1205. Himena
  1206. It'll only take a second.
  1207.  
  1208. Shizuka
  1209. You mean right away? Then I don't mind a little.
  1210.  
  1211. Himena
  1212. Thankies★
  1213.  
  1214. Shizuka
  1215. (Thankies...?)
  1216. So, what's your story?
  1217.  
  1218. Himena
  1219. How about Neo Magius and the Tokime clan come join forces together?
  1220. This cutie thinks Tokime is in a similar one chance situation as us.
  1221.  
  1222. Shizuka
  1223. I don't know how you came to that conclusion,
  1224. but no mahou shoujo other than Tokime carry our pride.
  1225.  
  1226. Himena
  1227. It's not about pride, it's about the bf's way of thinking.
  1228.  
  1229. Shizuka
  1230. Way of thinking...?
  1231.  
  1232. Himena
  1233. Tokime's people think mahou shoujo are special, right?
  1234. It's the same as us cuties. We believe we're better than people.
  1235. Doesn't that make loads of sense?
  1236.  
  1237. Shizuka
  1238. ...If that is true,
  1239. are you willing to protect others using that great power?
  1240.  
  1241. Himena
  1242. Mm? What do you mean protect?
  1243. Us cuties hold on to the ideal of mahou shoujo supremacy.
  1244. We just want everyone to admit that mahou shoujo are superior
  1245. and be able to exist without anyone objecting to us.
  1246.  
  1247. Shizuka
  1248. Then I don't want to talk...
  1249.  
  1250. Himena
  1251. Is that so? I was thinking you could be my memb.
  1252.  
  1253. Shizuka
  1254. The reason you want the stones is to rule over people, then...?
  1255.  
  1256. Himena
  1257. It's to fulfill our cuties' wishes and not lose everything★
  1258.  
  1259. Shizuka
  1260. I'm sorry...that just sounds completely childish to me.
  1261. Besides, the Tokime clan can't side with such a selfish goal.
  1262. What is the meaning of all of this anyway...?
  1263.  
  1264. Himena
  1265. In this cutie's case, I want to protect my love for my boyfriend,
  1266. and I don't my bf to be made a fool of.
  1267.  
  1268. Shizuka
  1269. Boyfriend...?
  1270.  
  1271. Himena
  1272. My sweetheart.
  1273.  
  1274. Shizuka
  1275. ...The issue with the diviners and the Kimochi stones is a much greater story.
  1276. And just why is it difficult for you to fall in love with your boyfriend...?
  1277.  
  1278. Himena
  1279. It's because he's only here.
  1280.  
  1281. Shizuka
  1282. Here?
  1283.  
  1284. Himena
  1285. In this cutie's head.
  1286.  
  1287. Shizuka
  1288. Do you take me for an idiot...?
  1289. Don't jest with me, I don't have time to waste.
  1290. Everyone, we're going.
  1291.  
  1292. Himena
  1293. It's because of people saying things like this that I need to get to the top...
  1294. Hey, if us cuties are going to enjoy our love together, we're going to have obstacles in our way after all...
  1295. Besides, the Tokime clan ended up being no good, so we have no choice but to steal...
  1296.  
  1297. Shizuka
  1298. What...?
  1299.  
  1300. Shigure
  1301. Princess, what are you going to do...?
  1302.  
  1303. Hagumu
  1304. Um, maybe, she meant we're fighting the Tokime clan here...?
  1305.  
  1306. Himena
  1307. If we can't come to an understanding, then really, what can ya do about it.
  1308. Back to the original plan. 'Kay, Sasha.
  1309.  
  1310. Alexandra
  1311. Now that most of the stones are gathered, there's no choice but to contest.
  1312. Uhuhu♪
  1313.  
  1314. Shizuka
  1315. っ...
  1316.  
  1317. Sunao
  1318. There will be no negotations, we can't ever come to understand that ideology.
  1319.  
  1320. Chiharu
  1321. People ruling over others is just pure arrogance.
  1322.  
  1323. Shigure
  1324. You're wrong, we're better than people...!
  1325.  
  1326. Alexandra
  1327. This is why we need to take control♪
  1328.  
  1329. Himena
  1330. It's because everyone doesn't understand
  1331. what to laugh at, and what not to laugh at.
  1332.  
  1333. Shizuka
  1334. My head is spinning...
  1335. We don't have time to deal with you, let's go!
  1336.  
  1337. Sunao
  1338. They're all Neo Magius...?
  1339.  
  1340. Chiharu
  1341. But it was said they were defeated and disbanded...!
  1342.  
  1343. Himena
  1344. If they disband, all you have to do is gather them up again.
  1345. Kyaha★
  1346.  
  1347. Shizuka
  1348. We're surrounded...
  1349.  
  1350. Himena
  1351. The leader will be too much trouble, so catch the small one.
  1352.  
  1353. Chiharu
  1354. Uo!
  1355.  
  1356. ???
  1357. So, Princess wants this bracelet, right?
  1358.  
  1359. ???
  1360. San-sama, San-sama, what are you going to do with her?
  1361.  
  1362. ???
  1363. We have no choice but to kill her or take her arm off to get it, right?
  1364.  
  1365. ???
  1366. Ahh, how cruel!
  1367. Miyu is...Miyu is...so nervous, it's unbearable.
  1368.  
  1369. -In Battle-
  1370.  
  1371. Shizuka
  1372. っ, another new trick...!?
  1373.  
  1374. Asahi
  1375. Compared to the old feathers, they seem capable.
  1376.  
  1377. ???
  1378. That is that is, only natural!
  1379. This person here's a former educator of feathers from Fendthope:
  1380. Instructor "Kagura San (神楽燦)"...!
  1381.  
  1382. Chiharu
  1383. We don't need the self-introduction!
  1384. I'm not someone who can be taken down so easily either!
  1385.  
  1386. ???
  1387. HeeEEee...!
  1388.  
  1389. [*Shatter*]
  1390.  
  1391. San
  1392. And she is "Yukari Miyuri (遊狩ミユリ)."
  1393. She gets extremely nervous quite easily, and when she loses consciousness, she becomes my doll.
  1394. My right-hand woman, if you will.
  1395.  
  1396. Miyuri
  1397. .....
  1398.  
  1399. -End Battle-
  1400.  
  1401. Chiharu
  1402. I've been completely separated from Shizuka-chan and everyone...
  1403.  
  1404. Miyuri
  1405. .....
  1406.  
  1407. Chiharu
  1408. Those roller blades aren't just for moving fast...
  1409. They're a weapon too...!
  1410.  
  1411. Shizuka
  1412. Ku, let me get to Charu!
  1413.  
  1414. Himena
  1415. Kyaha★
  1416. Don't think you're going to be able to diss this cutie's bf.
  1417.  
  1418. Shizuka
  1419. っ, Sunao!
  1420.  
  1421. Sunao
  1422. I'm sorry, Shizuka! There's too many on me here too!
  1423.  
  1424. Tokime Girl
  1425. SUNAO-SAN, WE'LL HOLD THE GROUND HERE!
  1426.  
  1427. Neo Magius Girl
  1428. っ...
  1429.  
  1430. Sunao
  1431. Everyone, thank you so much!
  1432.  
  1433. Alexandra
  1434. Uhuhu♪
  1435. Then I will let the timbre of my playing calm you down♪
  1436.  
  1437. Shizuka
  1438. Our fighting spirit will not falter. We will endure, Tokime clan!!
  1439.  
  1440. Chiharu
  1441. Gu...Uu...
  1442.  
  1443. Miyuri
  1444. .....
  1445.  
  1446. Sunao
  1447. I'll be over there right away! Just hold on a little longer!
  1448. ――っ!?
  1449.  
  1450. San
  1451. Until Miyu steals that bracelet, I'll be your opponent.
  1452.  
  1453. Asahi
  1454. No, I will be your opponent here.
  1455.  
  1456. San
  1457. A bayonet against my gatling gun, is it.
  1458. I'm being underestimated.
  1459.  
  1460. Asahi
  1461. A barrage of bullets isn't enough to stop someone like me.
  1462. I'm used to close quarters hunting, letting my prey die in a bloodbath.
  1463.  
  1464. San
  1465. In that case, I'll fill you full of holes, Bayonet-chan.
  1466. However, it looks like it's already the end for Jutte-chan over there. ¹
  1467.  
  1468. Asahi
  1469. ――っ!?
  1470.  
  1471. San
  1472. Miyu!
  1473.  
  1474. Chiharu
  1475. Gu...
  1476.  
  1477. San's Voice
  1478. RUN OVER HER ARM!
  1479.  
  1480. Miyuri
  1481. Yes, with pleasure.
  1482.  
  1483. Sunao
  1484. CHARU!
  1485.  
  1486. Chiharu

  1498. Himena
  1499. Well, consider this our greeting.
  1500. It seems the Kimochi of fear is better off with this cutie, kyaha★
  1501. Let's chat again sometime.
  1502. You and this little cutie are going to become the bestest of friends.

  1533. | Kagome should go home, too. Touka and Nemu are not here. |
  1534.  
  1535. Kagome
  1536. But, Sakurako-chan, you don't look okay...
  1537.  
  1538. Sakurako
  1539. | Ryou was able to properly leave a mark of her existence behind, so it's okay... |
  1540. | I will never forget her... |
  1541. | It's strange...even though she is not one of the four...I still feel like this... |
  1542.  
  1543. Kagome
  1544. Maybe it's because Ryou-chan and others helped raise you.
  1545.  
  1546. Sakurako
  1547. | Yes... |
  1548. | Is Kagome okay? |
  1549.  
  1550. Kagome
  1551. No, I'm not okay...
  1552. I thought I "understood" that mahou shoujo fighting was dangerous...
  1553. Now that I've experienced this danger more closely, I feel like I'm so naive...
  1554. I regret it so much...
  1555. And you know, now that I think about it, I've made such a fool of myself...
  1556. I thought this would be so simple, and I've written such fluffy entries
  1557. that never built up to anything special, that I feel like I'm no closer to understanding life...
  1558.  
  1559. Sakurako
  1560. | There is a saying that being aware of oneself is good, right? |
  1561.  
  1562. Kagome
  1563. Yeah...
  1564. But I... I can't stand myself for what I felt after Ryou-san died...hate myself...
  1565.  
  1566. Kagome's Diary
  1567. As I put all the things I heard together one by one, looking back on it all is finally bringing me to tears as I write this.
  1568. It was a chaotic night where many mahou shoujo's feelings became mixed together...
  1569. While looking over my unorganized feelings, I'm in deep reflection about how poorly I've written up until now.
  1570. I never intended to play around. I think I've just been a child that never truly understood the reality of being a mahou shoujo.
  1571. As I've become aware of this, I feel like everything, from my head to deep within my chest, my very core, has stabilized.
  1572. With this realization, my vision has become a little more clear. With new awareness, my mind has become bright and clear.
  1573. But, I'm not the only one that has changed. Now that the Kimochi stones are gathered, I think Iroha-san and her friends have changed a lot as well.
  1574.

  1578. We're home...
  1579.  
  1580. Tsuruno
  1581. Is it okay if I stay with you today...? I don't want to leave...
  1582.  
  1583. Sana
  1584. I understand...what it's like to be afraid of being separated from someone...
  1585.  
  1586. Felicia
  1587. What the hell is this...
  1588.  
  1589. Iroha
  1590. It feels strange, doesn't it...
  1591. Someone was just hurt, someone that we all loved.
  1592.  
  1593. Yachiyo
  1594. This is...
  1595.  
  1596. Tsuruno
  1597. Some mail?
  1598.  
  1599. Yachiyo
  1600. ...A declaration of war from Neo Magius...
  1601. They know where Mikazuki Manor is, so they can attack us any time...
  1602.  
  1603. Tsuruno
  1604. And after what Ooba Juri said, we won't be able to sleep peacefully...
  1605.  
  1606. Touka
  1607. I thought something like this would happen, so I made preparations.
  1608.  
  1609. Nemu
  1610. It's less preparations, and more using what we have.
  1611.  
  1612. Ui
  1613. Touka-chan, Nemu-chan.
  1614.  
  1615. Nemu
  1616. We heard the situation, so we understand.
  1617.  
  1618. Touka
  1619. However, instead of going on and on about regrets, right now we need to secure the base.
  1620.  
  1621. Nemu
  1622. As long as the other groups haven't secured it first.
  1623.  
  1624. Yachiyo
  1625. But, your preparation...
  1626.  
  1627. Touka
  1628. Don't underestimate the world-class Satomi Group, okay.
  1629.

  1631.  
  1632. -Satomi Shelter-
  1633.  
  1634. Iroha
  1635. Was there always a hideout like this around here...?
  1636.  
  1637. Felicia
  1638. Crazy, this is like a movie...
  1639.  
  1640. Tsuruno
  1641. This facility doesn't happen to be just for mahou shoujo, right...?
  1642.  
  1643. Touka
  1644. It's a hideout in case you need to hide in an emergency.
  1645. So if there's ever a time you're in danger, you hide in this shelter.
  1646.  
  1647. Tsuruno
  1648. Huoo, I knew it...
  1649.  
  1650. Touka
  1651. The Satomi Group and other important people prepared it for hiding away.
  1652. It was also designed for therapy, so there's a medical room, too.
  1653. There's even a supercomputer that manages the facility,
  1654. so it's possible for me to transfer my system here.
  1655.  
  1656. Nemu
  1657. And there's above-ground homes built for living in,
  1658. so there shouldn't be any particular inconvenience here.
  1659.  
  1660. Sana
  1661. But, is it okay to use it without permission...?
  1662.  
  1663. Yachiyo
  1664. There's a public expense, I'm assuming...?
  1665.  
  1666. Touka
  1667. Papa-sama will take care of it, so it's fiiine!
  1668.  
  1669. Iroha
  1670. Hmm, I'm worried about this...
  1671.  
  1672. Ui
  1673. He won't get angry?
  1674.  
  1675. Touka
  1676. But, with the way things are heading, Mikazuki Manor will be burned down, riiight?
  1677.  
  1678. Yachiyo
  1679. We can't solve problems without some sacrifice... We can't bring a life back...
  1680. I don't care if he gets angry and we're in the news,
  1681. but I would definitely lose my job, though...
  1682.  
  1683. Felicia
  1684. Eh, what do we do 'bout food...
  1685.  
  1686. Touka
  1687. Also, I'm going to be doing an experiment with Satori Kagome here.
  1688.  
  1689. Tsuruno
  1690. Something about spreading the word about mahou shoujo, right?
  1691.  
  1692. Touka
  1693. Right, this is also connected to the radio telescope, so we can do eeeverything from here.
  1694.  
  1695. Nemu
  1696. Also, we're going to need to get help from Touka's cousin.
  1697.  
  1698. Touka
  1699. Because Oji-sama's way with words is going to be one of the keys to this, nyaa...
  1700. It's hard for me to talk to Nayuta, but...
  1701. [Since we weren't able to join hands using our lives, eliminating the grief of all mahou shoujo across the world will become the best option for us to atone.]
