Chapter 196: Koukaigyoku


Pg 152

Recca:
Ah...huh?

Domon:
N, Nadare was---defeated!!

Kokuu:
Wrong!!


Pg 153

Kokuu:
As the character says...she vanished!
Koukaigyoku!!

Recca:
?
Koukaigyoku?

Kokuu:
Of the many madougu, there are rare special ones.
[Long ago, among the Hokage people, someone would appear, able to handle it.]
A most terrible madougu!!


Pg 154

Kokuu:
now...
With the ability to use that madougu...so young!
...and even remain conscious---
...no, that's not right!
I understand.  The master's body---

Kirin:
Stop it!!
...stop!

Kokuu:
I guessed it...

Recca:
Hey, Gramps!!
Why do you have to be the only one who understands!
What makes it so rare?

Kokuu:
Umu---


Pg 155

Kokuu:
[Koukaigyoku...its meaning is not the questioner of the true value of the artist.]
Shadows are created from the Eikaikyoku, and there is a madougu of the opposite effect---
Everything of this world disappears.

Recca:
Everything---disappears?


Pg 156

Yanagi:
Even cakes and dolls?

Kokuu:
Yep.

Kaoru:
Even buildings?  Mountains, too!?

Kokuu:
Yep.

Domon:
Even Yanagi's breasts?

Kokuu:
There's nothing there to disappear!!

Yanagi:
They're small, but still there...

Kokuu:
Finally, the master's brain becomes like miso.

Mikagami:
Kokuu.
'Vanish' you say...
Truly, could you explain better.

Kokuu:
There's nothing vague about vanishing!
It's like erasing God's picture with a gum eraser---


Pg 157

Kokuu:
Nothing is broken, it's not destruction...
People aren't killed, souls aren't pulled.
[Similar to Magensha's power with the separate world, things just float!]
Things just vanish...

Recca:
Hey, hey, hey!!
This isn't a joke!!!


Pg 158

Recca:
[This just isn't good]
!!
Agn!!


Pg 159

Domon:
The fire blade disappeared.
[That's cheating!!]
What a madougu!!

Recca:
Sh...shit...!!

Mikagami:
Kokuu.  Everything vanishes, you say?
Can the eight dragons disappear as well?


Pg 160

Kokuu:
...only those things without form can be excluded.
Only memories---
And illnesses cannot disappear!
Concluding!
We (the eight dragons) can vanish!!

Domon:
He's invincible

Kirin:
But---


Pg 161

Kirin:
Rasen won't disappear.
Neither will the eight dragons---
Not Recca himself.

Domon:
Hoh!!
You get how unfair this is?

Kirin/Rasen:
Wrong.

Kirin:
...um...that...is it okay to say that, Rasen...?
Got it...

Kirin/Rasen:
[He has no hesitation for things to disappear]
And so...there must be a cause
This is not the only true fear of the Koukaigyoku.
For anything he wants to vanish, the artist must give up parts of himself---
That reaction is the true fear


Pg 162

Kirin/Rasen:
[To make other things vanish, one's most important things disappear]
For me, my voice...
My emotions...
Also---


Pg 163

Kirin/Rasen:
My mother have all disappeared.


Pg 164

Kirin/Rasen:
...Have you noticed my face?
The cut Recca gave me earlier.
The blood has stopped flowing.
There is no bleeding
To make Nadare and Saiha disappear, I compensated with an amount of my own blood.
For what I want to vanish, there is a ratio...
I must give up something suitable.


Pg 165

Kirin/Rasen:
When is the final---
Slash of the sword.

Recca:
...
...Why...
Why, Rasen...!?


Pg 166

Recca:
It made your mother vanish!?
Why aren't you sad!!!

Kirin/Rasen:
...
...my emotions have also disappeared...

Recca:
Aren't you furious!!
That madougu---
Made your mother...your soul disappear!!


Pg 167

Kirin/Rasen:
...the curse has also taken my voice...

Recca:
Why...
Why...!!
Why do you still have that thing, asshole!!!


Pg 168

Rasen:
What's, this power...
This man...in this crisis---

Recca:
Stand up.


Pg 169

Chapter 197: Crime and Punishment


Pg 170

Recca:
Stand up.


Pg 171

Rasen:
...Why...
This power...why?


Pg 172

Domon:
Hey...
The battle situation has changed.
Earlier, I had an 'ah, shit' feeling.
But now there's a 'winning' pace.

Yanagi:
Um...Recca-kun---is angry.

Kaoru:
[Whenever he uses that madougu, something of his own disappears...]

Mikagami:
He said his own mother vanished.
And yet he continues to use that madougu.


Pg 173

Domon:
I don't think he's sane...

Fuuko:
Yo!!  I made it---!!?
Cheese

Kaoru:
Fu...

Yanagi:
Fuuko-chan!!

Domon:
Fuuko!!

Kokuu:
Fuuko-chaaaaaaaaaaaaaan!!


Pg 174

Fuuko:
Have you been well, Domo---n!!!
We--ll, everyone, it's been a while! Hey!!
It looks like everyone is here!!

Domon:
...Fuuko is...
(Kirin:) Her spirit will become warped.
(Kirin:) The cheery Fuuko you know won't return...
Wrong!!


Pg 175

Domon:
That's the Fuuko I know!!

Welcome back, Fuuko-sama!!!

Fuuko:
...For later---
Once Recca beats Rasen---


Pg 176

Recca:
(Oyaji:) What is it, Recca!
(Oyaji:) Get in another fight?
(Recca:) Dad
(Oyaji:) N?
(Recca:) Why isn't my mother here?


Pg 177

Recca:
(Oyaji:) Did you eat lunch, yet!
(Recca:) Are you going to remarry?
(Recca:) Aren't you sad!?
(Oyaji:) I'm not sad
(Oyaji:) Cause you're here!
(Recca:)...don't be smoking while making fireworks.
(Oyaji:) Hey, were you just embarrassed, embarrassed were you!?


Pg 178

Recca:
No yet, not yet---!!!

Fuuko:
(Mother:) Oh, welcome, Recca!
(Recca:) Yo, lady!!
(Mother:) Trump?
(Mother:) How nice--can I enter in?
(Recca:) Yeah!  Join us, join us!!
(Fuuko:) No!


Pg 179

Fuuko:
(Fuuko:) We're playing!
(Fuuko:) Mama will just get in the way!!
(Mother:) Okay, okay.  Well, I have shopping to do.
(Recca:) Don't say anything about her getting in the way!
(Recca:) Mothers are very important.

...After that, we always got in big fights.
How nostalgic.


Pg 180

Fuuko:
That guy...for a time, he didn't have a mother.
He'd see others with mothers saying, 'how nice,'
And yet not be jealous.
[Even without her near, he had feelings for that important person.]

Domon:
Even without a mother, I don't think he was off too bad!
He's had Oyaji!!

Kaoru:
Um, interesting!
['See Shige-chan's dance,' he says!]

Yanagi:
...Recca-kun---
He...compares with Rasen-san.


Pg 181

(Kagerou:) I am---
(Kagerou:) [unable to die]
(Kagerou:) [It's my fate to continue to live into the distance future[
(Kagerou:) Your mother---
(Kagerou:) You've gotten so big...Recca...

Fuuko:
Not really.
He has purpose in protecting Yanagi and ending Kagerou's curse.
He doesn't think about himself as he tries to ease his mother's suffering, so I believe.


Pg 182

Fuuko:
And so he can't comprehend.
Why Rasen holds the madougu that made his mother disappear---
He's fighting Rasen's ---

Rasen:
Why...until now, I could fight!?
Is there no limits to his power!?
Is he a monster...!!?
It was the same at that time---
Those two...even while that fought on...they stood up
They continued to fight
Why...
Why!?


Pg 183

Raiha:
Please tell me Recca's feelings as you read Rasen's thoughts.
Kirin---

Kirin:
...Raiha...

Kirin/Recca:
I can fight due to my protective emotions
That Kurei...
Even he had Hokage pride for his dead mother!
If I protect people, I don't have to apologize later...And so I can endure to fight.


Pg 184

Recca:
...I can't say you're clever, but
I don't wish you to fight with that madougu.
Surely, your mother would say so.
Another's feeling are very important.


Pg 185

Kirin/Rasen:
...How you and Kurei stood up, I know...
I understand it's your spirit.
It's a burden.
I had said that there is one thing I was searching for.
I was looking for the time of my disappearance.
The crime of making my mother disappear in a fight...
I should receive the punishment of vanishing myself.
No half disappearance. I requested extinction.
No exceptions to my wish...I searched for a place where a walking dead man could vanish.
[I...carried that burden]


Pg 186

Kirin/Rasen:
If this was to be...
Shouldn't I win...

Rasen:
I have no emotions...
But---
There's this feeling...
Kirin...

Kirin/Rasen:
I have lost

Rasen:
I have found what I was searching for----
