N, Nadare was---defeated!!
As the character says...she vanished!
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!!
With the ability to use that madougu...so young!
...and even remain conscious---
...no, that's not right!
I understand. The master's body---
I guessed it...
Why do you have to be the only one who understands!
What makes it so rare?
[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.
Even cakes and dolls?
Even buildings? Mountains, too!?
Even Yanagi's breasts?
There's nothing there to disappear!!
They're small, but still there...
Finally, the master's brain becomes like miso.
'Vanish' you say...
Truly, could you explain better.
There's nothing vague about vanishing!
It's like erasing God's picture with a gum eraser---
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...
Hey, hey, hey!!
This isn't a joke!!!
[This just isn't good]
The fire blade disappeared.
What a madougu!!
Kokuu. Everything vanishes, you say?
Can the eight dragons disappear as well?
...only those things without form can be excluded.
And illnesses cannot disappear!
We (the eight dragons) can vanish!!
Rasen won't disappear.
Neither will the eight dragons---
Not Recca himself.
You get how unfair this is?
...um...that...is it okay to say that, 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
[To make other things vanish, one's most important things
For me, my voice...
My mother have all disappeared.
...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.
When is the final---
Slash of the sword.
It made your mother vanish!?
Why aren't you sad!!!
...my emotions have also disappeared...
Aren't you furious!!
Made your mother...your soul disappear!!
...the curse has also taken my voice...
Why do you still have that thing, asshole!!!
What's, this power...
This man...in this crisis---
Chapter 197: Crime and Punishment
The battle situation has changed.
Earlier, I had an 'ah, shit' feeling.
But now there's a 'winning' pace.
[Whenever he uses that madougu, something of his own
He said his own mother vanished.
And yet he continues to use that madougu.
I don't think he's sane...
Yo!! I made it---!!?
Have you been well, Domo---n!!!
We--ll, everyone, it's been a while! Hey!!
It looks like everyone is here!!
(Kirin:) Her spirit will become warped.
(Kirin:) The cheery Fuuko you know won't return...
That's the Fuuko I know!!
Welcome back, Fuuko-sama!!!
Once Recca beats Rasen---
(Oyaji:) What is it, Recca!
(Oyaji:) Get in another fight?
(Recca:) Why isn't my mother here?
(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
No yet, not yet---!!!
(Mother:) Oh, welcome, Recca!
(Recca:) Yo, lady!!
(Mother:) How nice--can I enter in?
(Recca:) Yeah! Join us, join us!!
(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.
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
Even without a mother, I don't think he was off too bad!
He's had Oyaji!!
['See Shige-chan's dance,' he says!]
He...compares with Rasen-san.
(Kagerou:) I am---
(Kagerou:) [unable to die]
(Kagerou:) [It's my fate to continue to live into the
(Kagerou:) Your mother---
(Kagerou:) You've gotten so big...Recca...
He has purpose in protecting Yanagi and ending Kagerou's
He doesn't think about himself as he tries to ease his
mother's suffering, so I believe.
And so he can't comprehend.
Why Rasen holds the madougu that made his mother
He's fighting Rasen's ---
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
Please tell me Recca's feelings as you read Rasen's
I can fight due to my protective emotions
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.
...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.
...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]
If this was to be...
Shouldn't I win...
I have no emotions...
There's this feeling...
I have lost
I have found what I was searching for----
