Chapter 214: Time of Action


Pg 110

Girls:
....6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1...
0!!!

Girl A: ...

Girl B:
Te...hu-hu-huh?
Recca isn't coming?


Pg 111

Girl A:
Very strange!!! Did you have a fight!? Yanagi!!

Yanagi:
No, not really...
Nothing...

Girl B:
Ah-ah!? She's boiling over!!!

Girl A:
What could've happened!?

Yanagi:
[What'd I do...What'd I do...]
Was I too impulsive
Was it the atmosphere
Also, from me...
Recca-kun, are you upset...


Pg 112

Yanagi:
Ah.
Not him...

Kagura-san.

Girls:
Ne, ne, Kagura-san!
You're in class E, right?
What's with Recca!?


Pg 113:

Fuuko:
...Really.
He's rather stiff, this guy.

Domon:
[???]
Get a hold of yourself, idiot!!

Recca:
What was that for, octopus!!
Want a fight!!

Domon:
O-oh

Recca:
I'll kill...

Fuuko & Domon:
This is serious.


Pg 114

Aoi:
--and that's it...
He's odd. Hanabishi.

Yanagi:
I knew it
It looks like I gave him a shock~~~.
U-uh~~~! It's going to be strange for a while~~~.

Girl A:
Suspicious!

Girl B:
Suspicious!!

Aoi:
giggle, giggle...Both of you are strange today.
...oh right, Yanagi-chan!
Is it okay to steal a moment?
I have a favor to ask of you


Pg 115

Aoi:
Yanagi-cha---n!


Pg 116

Recca:
(Yanagi:) Recca-kun...I love you...

Sign:
Still dazed and can't do anything

Kaoru:
Hey, hey, Recca-niichan!
It's Sunday, but how long are you going to sleep!
[We have to air out the mattress, so move!]

Recca:
You're wrong, Koganei~~~!
I wanted to sleep, but I couldn't sleep!!!
Don't you understand how I'm suffering!!!?

Kaoru:
I don't!
You've slept until 1 in the afternoon!!

Ojisan:
Recca---, A guest---!!


Pg 117

Recca:
Huh? What's up Mi--bou!

Mikagami:
We have to talk.
There could be a danger.

Recca: !

Yanagi:
Here.
This is the park!


Pg 118

Aoi:
Nice place.
Sorry. I hate to trouble you to show me around.

Yanagi:
No prob, no prob.
Kagura-san, you just moved here, so you don't know the area!

Aoi:
What's wrong, Yanagi-chan?

Yanagi:
Huh? Oh.
Well, this place...is a very important---
place in my memories.


Pg 119

Yanagi:
(Recca:) Here to assist you!!

...This is the place---
where I first talked to Recca-kun...
(Yanagi:) He's okay, look
(Recca:) Respecting his master, a ninja serves with his life!!
(Recca:) Hanabishi Recca is now your ninja!!
(Yanagi:) I'm not Hime, it's Yanagi

Aoi:
What a nice story.
I'm interested. I would like to hear more.


Pg 120

Mikagami:
...got it?
Right now the calmness inside me is mixed with something else!
Kagura Aoi---
We passed each other in the hallway.
At that time...I was overcome by an unpleasant sensation.
The first time I ran into her...some girl that I didn't know---
I felt there was something I had forgotten.

Recca:
Mu. Speaking of which, I had that initial feeling as well.

Kaoru:
Ne---, ne---.
Who's Kagura?

Mikagami:
Listen to this.


Pg 121

Phone:
[...that number is presently disconnected...]

Recca: ?

Mikagami:
This is the number to Kagura's house.

Recca: !?

Mikagami:
From the school, I checked out her address and decided to walk there.
There was nothing there.
As if she disappeared from the city.

Recca:
You're kidding...did she transfer again?
I haven't heard anything about it!

Mikagami:
From transferring before...the school she transferred from seems to have no data on her.
It sounds unusual..don't you think so?
...Also---


Pg 122

Mikagami:
Don't you think she could be working for Mori Kouran?

Recca:
...not...possible...
"Yanagi-san is playing with a friend today"
That's what her steward told me.
With who? I heard from Yanagi's good female friends.
(Girls:) That's right. On Sunday, Yanagi was going out with...
(Girls:) Hu...h?
(Girls:) With whom?
(Girls:) Who invited her to go
(Girls:) Strange...I can't remember...

Mikagami:
Perhaps...there is a madougu that can wipe a person's memory.
She could be an enemy that we have met before, boldly entering our school.
A classmate thus one not to be cautious of, she had the time to act!
One piece of proof remains!!


Pg 123

Mikagami:
A declaration. She is an enemy!!!


Pg 124

Recca:
Hime is...in danger!!

We have to find her!!

Aoi:
heh---...
This is a place of your memories, too?


Pg 125

Yanagi:
Yep.
Here we watched fireworks, and other various things happened.
(Yanagi:) Since we traded our secrets....we're friends
(Kagerou:) I wish to die. That's what I desire of you...
(Recca:) Don't call me Hanabishi-kun!
(Recca:) It's too indifferent!
(Recca:) Recca is fine


Pg 126

Aoi:
Yanagi-chan...

Yanagi: Eh?


Pg 127

Aoi:
Neh, Yanagi-chan---

Yanagi: Eh?


Pg 128

Chapter 215: A Mistake


Pg 129

Pg 130

Pg 131

Yanagi:
Eh...Ah...Ah-ah...


Pg 132

Aoi:
Sorry, Yanagi-chan...
I am Aoi---
Ura Uruha member, a person of the four gods of death.
Mori Kouran-sama's agent.
In other words---
Your enemy
giggle, giggle
Again, pleased to meet you

Yanagi:
No...no...


Pg 133

Yanagi:
Kagura-san...aren't we students at the same school...
Aren't you...an ordinary girl...
Didn't we become friends...!!
I don't believe it!!
Isn't it a lie!?
You're probably lying, Kagura-san!!

Aoi:
Don't shout at me. Got it?
...It was fun.
As for me. It was the first time I went to school.
I had al--ways wanted to.
I think it was mostly amusing.


Pg 134

Aoi:
But that's all over with.
Too bad...
From the bottom of my heart, I'm envious of you people.
A normal birth...A normal childhood...
At a fixed time, everyone becomes "a student".
At place called "school" where anyone can visit.
Isn't it nice?
It isn't necessarily the most important time in a person's life but...
[For an intolerable person like me having a desire to see it, it was foolish.]
I cannot obtain satisfaction...nor happiness.
I regret not being human.


Pg 135

Yanagi:
After all...I don't want to believe it...
That you are related to those people...
Please...
Become a normal girl...go to school with me...?
We...
Didn't we become friends...
Didn't we...

Aoi:
...it's no use...You and I are different.
How do you think I was born?


Pg 136

Pg 137

Pg 138

Aoi:
I was made by Mori Kouran-sama and Genjourou---
A clone of Kurei and Kurenai.


Pg 139

Yanagi:
A clone...
(Renge:) Renge---Papa's child---
(Renge:) Even though I'm really born from Kurei and Kurenai...

Then...

Aoi:
Right...I'm the same as her (Renge).
But...since she has more power, thus called a "success", she is Mori-sama's pet.
As for me...
(Doctors:) 0005, Aoi unfortunately cannot produce a flame
(Doctors:) Also, she is lacking in many "human" qualities
(Doctors:) She is unworthy
(Doctors:) She is dangerous...
(Mori:) A mistake?...


Pg 140

Aoi:
Ah-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha!!

Lacking, they said!!
Unworthy!!

Dangerous!!
He called me a mistake!!
Don't you think that was cruel?
After making me...giving birth to me...
[I wish it could have been different]
I wasn't completely a mistake...
Many...many clones were made which were imperfect, thus died.
Made of human form, and abandoned
Only I and Renge were made...
Isn't it a splendid existence to choose?


Pg 141

Aoi:
[I wonder what can that infant Renge do.]
[Why am I a mistake.]
[Why doesn't Mori-sama see that.]
[School, as well, required patience...]
[To kill people...]
Then...

Yanagi:
Re...
Recca-kun!!!


Pg 142

Recca: !?

Kaoru:
What's wrong, Recca-niichan!?

Recca:
...a scream...
I don't know how...
But I clearly heard it!!


Pg 143

Recca:
It came from...
There---
Wait for me, Hime!!!


Pg 144

Aoi:
Truly...
I also believe..."This isn't without circumstance".
But for an instant did we seem like classmates.
Thus---
With at least those feelings,
I won't take you by force.


Pg 145

Aoi:
I will make you "want to come with me".
With my power

Yanagi:
!!
...What?
What is seeping into my head...!?
This is...


Pg 146

Kaoru:
...is she really here?

Recca:
Yes!!
Let's go in!!

Hiruko:
Stop...
Pleased to see you...But---
Fate cannot be changed.
