  10. Senya: Your head doesn't hurt?
  11.  
  12. Junko: No.
  13. Junko: All thanks to you.
  14. Senya: Eh heh heh.
  15.  
  16. Margin: The battle is over.
  17.  
  18. 02
  19.  
  20. Senya: Man, I'm glad that worked.
  21. Senya: If it hadn't, you'd be collapsed in a pool of blood.
  22. Junko(image): Gwaaaahh
  23. Junko: That could have happened!?
  24.  
  25. Junko: I-I'm glad it worked too.
  26. Senya: Right?
  27.  
  28. Junko: Sogiita-san.
  29. Junko: I have never seen anyone so unconventional.
  30.  
  31. Junko: Those were real...
  32. Junko: "super powers".
  33. SFX: Clench
  34. Junko: I am so far from that level!
  35.  
  36. 03
  37.  
  38. Junko: I lost utterly.
  39.  
  40. Senya: Did you, though?
  41.  
  42. Senya: You managed to keep up with Gunha-chan's craziness.
  43. Senya: And you can keep going, can't you?
  44. SFX: Twirl twirl
  45. Junko: That is true.
  46.  
  47. Senya: Hm?
  48.  
  49. Junko: After seeing him...
  50. Junko: I feel like I finally understand the nature of my powers.
  51.  
  52. Junko: My inner destructive urges...
  53. Junko: are not to be suppressed.
  54.  
  55. Junko: But instead of losing control...
  56. Junko: I must use them as the key to reaching the next stage.
  57.  
  58. 04
  59.  
  60. Junko: It was like I was throwing out my own crucial Personality Reality this whole time.
  61. SFX: Squeeze
  62.  
  63. Junko: Of course I failed to grow.
  64.  
  65. Junko: You and Sogiita-san taught me that.
  66. Junko: Thank you so much.
  67. Senya: Eh heh heh.
  68.  
  69. Senya: Ah.
  70.  
  71. Senya: Tah, dah!
  72. Senya: Look, Junko-chan! Remember me now?
  73. SFX: Bam
  74. Junko: Yes.
  75.  
  76. Senya: Wait, "yes"?
  77. Senya(small): That's all?
  78. Junko: I had plenty of hints.
  79. Junko(outside): Although I only caught on a bit ago.
  80.  
  81. Junko: It was a surprise.
  82. Junko: A big one.
  83. Junko: But...
  84.  
  85. 05
  86.  
  87. Junko: Yes.
  88. Junko: I can accept it.
  89.  
  90. Kuroko: So you...
  91. Kuroko: thought Hokaze-san was the leader of a criminal organization?
  92. Gunha: Yes, I did.
  93. Gunha(outside): I wouldn't hit a girl for no reason.
  94. Misaki: But of course she isn't a criminal.
  95.  
  96. Misaki: So what did you base that "thought" on?
  97.  
  98. SFFX: Wind...
  99.  
  100. 06
  101.  
  102. Gunha: I dunno.
  103.  
  104. Misaki: A-are you serious?
  105. Misaki(outside): You even made me do that cliche reaction.
  106.  
  107. Misaki: Keep joking around and this Judgment girl will unleash her arresting ability on you.
  108. Kuroko: Arresting him sounds like a nightmare.
  109.  
  110. Gunha: No, it's not that.
  111. Gunha: I'm just not sure how to put it to words.
  112. Gunha: She was still herself, you see.
  113.  
  114. 07
  115.  
  116. Misaki: You don't have to put it to words.
  117.  
  118. Senya: The next thing I knew, I was watching you.
  119. Senya: But I was a weak presence...
  120. Senya: that couldn't do anything.
  121.  
  122. Senya: But, but. I saw eeeeverything! Even that thing and that other thing!
  123. Senya: And how you grew all those curves❤
  124. SFX: Shake shake
  125. Senya: Deh heh heh. Junko, I know everything about you!
  126.  
  127. Senya: Hey, Junko?
  128. SFX: Phase
  129.  
  130. 08
  131.  
  132. Senya: Eh?
  133.  
  134. SFX: Pass through
  135.  
  136. 09
  137.  
  138. Senya: Yeah.
  139. Senya: I guess there's no hiding it.
  140.  
  141. Senya: It's true.
  142. Senya: I was there too...
  143. Senya: when that happened.
  144.  
  145. Senya: I couldn't get you to notice me, though.
  146.  
  147. Junko: I'm...
  148. Junko: sorry.
  149.  
  150. Senya: Why are you apologizing?
  151.  
  152. 10
  153.  
  154. SFX: Hug
  155. Senya: Misaki-chan?
  156.  
  157. Senya: Where are the others?
  158. Misaki: I had them leave.
  159. Misaki(outside): Shirai-san said she would handle everything.
  160.  
  161. Misaki: Didn't I tell you not to...
  162. Misaki: do everything yourself?
  163.  
  164. 11
  165.  
  166. Junko: I can't forgive myself.
  167.  
  168. Junko: If I had been stronger...
  169. Junko: maybe none of them would have gotten hurt.
  170.  
  171. Junko: I didn't want to hurt them...
  172. Junko: so I suppressed my destructive urges...
  173.  
  174. SFX: Squeeze
  175.  
  176. 12
  177.  
  178. Junko: But that only...
  179. Junko: kept me from the power to protect them!
  180.  
  181. Misaki: Back then...
  182. Misaki: you lacked the strength ability to endure your powers.
  183. Misaki: That too is true.
  184.  
  185. 13
  186.  
  187. Junko: I see.
  188. Junko: Thinking back, I said some awful things to Iruka-san.
  189. SFX: Sob
  190. Junko: I thought she might be working for Clone Dolly...
  191. Junko: even though I knew she wasn't a bad person.
  192.  
  193. Senya: But it's also true that you screwed up, Misaki-chan!
  194. Misaki: You be quiet.
  195.  
  196. Junko: I thought the past was attacking...
  197. Junko: and trying to take someone from me...
  198. Junko: yet again.
  199.  
  200. Junko: It scared me how powerless I was.
  201.  
  202. 14
  203.  
  204. Misaki: Wishing you had more power...
  205. Misaki: is only an illusion.
  206.  
  207. Misaki: But everyone clings to...
  208. Misaki: those what ifs.
  209. Misaki: We all do.
  210.  
  211. Misaki: We are all weak.
  212.  
  213. 15
  214.  
  215. Misaki: I finally got to hear...
  216. Misaki: what is bothering you.
  217. Misaki(outside): It took a long time.
  218.  
  219. Misaki: Deep down, you must have no trust ability in me.
  220. SFX: Sob
  221. Misaki(outside): How sad.
  222. Junko: Th-that is not true!
  223.  
  224. Misaki: Reallyyy?
  225. Junko: Really!
  226. SFX: Whisper
  227. Senya: You might actually be right.
  228. Senya(small): No matter what she says.
  229. Junko: D-don't you join in!
  230.  
  231. Misaki: You think so too? She sure is suspicious.
  232. Senya: Yes, she really is.
  233. SFX: Whisper whisper
  234. Junko: Why are you so in sync!?
  235. SFX: Eek
  236.  
  237. 16
  238.  
  239. Misaki: Trauma has to be overcome on your own.
  240. Misaki: If someone else forces you, it will only break something else.
  241.  
  242. Misaki: But.
  243. Misaki: There might be something else I can help you with.
  244.  
  245. Misaki: Worry about me if you like...
  246. Misaki: but if you don't tell me anything...
  247. Misaki: I'll be lonely.
  248. Junko: Okay.
  249.  
  250. Senya: That's right.
  251. Senya: Rely on her all you want.
  252.  
  253. 17
  254.  
  255. Senya: After all, Misaki-chan...
  256. Senya: acts all cool and says you're just pawns, but she actually loves all of you.
  257. Misaki: You. Be. Quiet.
  258. Text: Pretending she can't hear
  259.  
  260. Senya: Oh, c'moooon. It's nothing to be ashamed of. You're adorable.
  261. Senya: And everyone already knows.
  262. Senya(outside): We don't need to read minds.
  263. SFX: Beep beep beep beep
  264. Misaki: Be that as it may!
  265. Misaki: Wait, no, I mean...
  266. Misaki: Argh, you are a master of trouble ability!!!
  267. SFX: Hee hee
  268.  
  269. 18
  270.  
  271. Junko: I will help you keep up appearances...
  272. Junko: by only relying on you in secret,
  273. Junko: my Queen.
  274.  
  275. SFX: Grin grin
  276.  
  277. Misaki: Fine.
  278. Misaki: Bring it on.
  279.  
  280. SFX: Inhale
  281.  
  282. Junko: Okay.
  283.  
  284. Junko: I feel bad being the only one...
  285. Junko: crying.
  286. Junko: Those memories could not have been pleasant for you either.
  287.  
  288. Junko: I could learn a thing or two...
  289. Junko: from you.
  290.  
  291. 19
  292.  
  293. Senya: Yeah.
  294. Senya: I made a promise...
  295. Senya: at the very end there.
  296.  
  297. Misaki: Most likely...
  298. Misaki: anyone you have used your control ability on can see you from that point on.
  299. Misaki: And talk with you too.
  300.  
  301. 20
  302.  
  303. Senya: Oh! Then Iruka-chan too?
  304. Misaki: If you controlled her, then yes.
  305.  
  306. Misaki: Maybe it's like connecting to some kind of channel...
  307. Misaki(small): Or however it actually works.
  308. Misaki: and that gives them the power to see you.
  309. Senya(image): You can't see me?
  310. Senya(image): Yahoo!
  311. Misaki(image): Who's there!?
  312. Senya: Really?
  313. Misaki: It's a support power, isn't it?
  314.  
  315. Misaki: But.
  316.  
  317. Misaki: That seems beyond what you could do with a single power.
  318. Misaki(By Gunha): THAT is an exception.
  319. Misaki: There are a few examples of multiple espers' powers combining...
  320. Misaki: but if that is the case here...
  321. Misaki: there must be some kind of system out there.
  322.  
  323. 21
  324.  
  325. Junko: What do you want to do once you're back?
  326.  
  327. Junko: Back in your body, I mean.
  328.  
  329. Junko: Your power still exists...
  330. Junko: so you must be alive out there somewhere.
  331. Junko: Right?
  332. Senya: Oh.
  333. Misaki: I suppose so.
  334.  
  335. Junko: Didn't you want...
  336. Junko: clothes?
  337.  
  338. Senya: You remembered.
  339.  
  340. Senya: But right now, Junko-chan...
  341. Senya: I'm most worried about your boobs situation.
  342. Senya(small): Your bra is too small.
  343. Junko: Eh!?
  344. Misaki: Good point.
  345. Misaki(outside): I know what you mean.
  346. Junko: Ehh!!?
  347.  
  348. Junko: My...
  349. Junko: boobs?
  350. SFX: Back away
  351.  
  352. 22
  353.  
  354. Misaki: Bras are important.
  355. Junko: Don't peek up from below!!
  356. Senya: Right?
  357. Senya: You need to choose underwear that fits.
  358. SFX: Crackle
  359.  
  360. SFX: Rumble
  361. Text: What is this interrupting their three-way flirting!?
  362. Box: To be continued next issue. The December Issue goes on sale Saturday, October 26!!
