Pg 149

Narration:
It was noted how everyone passed his or her three days before the final battle---
Also...Recca went once again to "his world" to meet the leader of the eight dragons, Resshin


Pg 150

Chapter 226: Resshin (part one)
---The Meeting---


Pg 151

Recca:
Within here...
Within here...is Resshin!!
!


Pg 152

Chibi:
Thank you for coming!!
Hokage Ninja, seventh generation, Hanabishi Recca!!!
...


Pg 153

Recca:
What's with this!!
He is...He is Resshin's human form!!
An exception!!
Of course, I though the guy would be dignified...
[And the others have odd forms for flame dragons as well!]
[It's not about appearance!!]
Hey, Resshin!!
About that talk...
!?

Chibi:
At this time...you will be tested here.
Within this mansion is a meeting room.
I will guide you there and you will follow.
If this candle burns out before you get there...
You are not worthy enough to talk to.


Pg 154

Chibi:
Very well.

Recca:
Hey, wait!!
Why follow...
...
Nyaro!!
Nu!?
There are two entrances!!
Right!!!


Pg 155

Recca:
O-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-oh!
(Chibi:) If the candle burns out before you get there...
I get it...
That's what he meant!!
It's burning up.
There's no time to play!!


Pg 156

Recca:
...
No...trap.
The entrance is...


Pg 157

Chibi:
My!
Not bad!

Recca:
Will you wait, you---!!


Pg 158

Chibi:
What!!?
Rui's Genen!!

Recca:
Correct.


Pg 159

Chibi:
[...I've been thinking!]
He truly is surprising!
The seventh generation!!
His sheer desire to protect his friends made him strong...

Recca:
Come out, you---

Chibi:
Even still...


Pg 160

Chibi:
He excels at ninja movements! Probably capable!!
A person with Hokage blood running through him...could he be a good leader!!!

Recca:
What?
Is the game of tag over?

Chibi:
He's disturbing with...one breath!
He's strong!!
In the heart and in strength!!
The candle as well...
It's not even halfway burned.
Umu.


Pg 161

Chibi:
You've passed, Recca!!
Within there, Resshin is waiting!!
It was a pleasant time!

Recca:
He...
Wasn't Resshin after all...
This time, his here---
...I'm coming...
Resshin!!!


Pg 162
Pg 163
Pg 164

Recca:
What's...this...
Oppression!!

Resshin:
...Long time...should I say...


Pg 165

Resshin:
I'm pleased you came.
Recca!!!
As a reward---I'll show you my human form!!

Narration:
...The flame dragons
Remember they are the souls of flame masters
Who became flame incarnations due to the Hokage curse
And then
This person as well...that man is


Pg 166
Pg 167
Pg 168
Pg 169

Chapter 227: Resshin (part two)
---Ouka---


Pg 170

Recca:
You're...no---
You are...

Ouka:
Hokage Ninja, sixth generation leader, Ouka.
Your and Kurei's father.


Pg 171

Ouka:
...And now I exist within you.
Through the source of flame, I exist as the leader of the eight flame dragons.
"Resshin"...that is my current name.

Recca: ...

Ouka:
n?
You're still confused about the situation?
What the hell...
It's been a long time since I've met with my son!
Come here! Recca!!
Come into your father's arms!!

Arrow:
[Nothing there]


Pg 172

Ouka:
Foolish---!!
[This isn't the time for you open your heart!]
That's negligence! Negligence is death!!
[In normal times, you can let me in your heart!!]
Wah-ah-ah-ah-ah!!

Recca:
...
...heh-heh!
You're kind of like Oyaji (Shigeo)!
Got rid of the tension, too!!


Pg 173

Recca:
I'm your kid. Nice to meet ya!

Ouka:
O-oh!? You've got guts!!

Kokuu:
My, my.
This is far from open tears of a father and son...

Recca:
Ah, Gramps!!!
You're out agai---n!!

Kokuu:
...
[You only wanted to meet with your son, Resshin.]
No...Ouka-dono.
[Just at this moment, didn't you have the face of a father?]

Ouka:
No.
When I saw him as a baby, I thought he'd be normal...
This is awkward!
[Yet, it's so happy!]
[Also, I al--ways see his stupidity inside!!]
[Be kinder to your father's face!!]

Recca:
[Then watch what you say, you---!!]

Kokuu:
This isn't even a bit sentimental...


Pg 174

Recca:
...
By the way...Oyaji!
...I'm fine.
Now, there's someone else for you to see.
[She's quiet about it.]
But...

Ouka:
Kagerou?

Recca:
So! When will you meet with her!!
You, the first time you came out from me, you knew Kaachan was there!?

Ouka:
A-ah.

Recca:
Then...

Ouka:
I can't meet her.


Pg 175

Recca:
Why!?

Ouka:
Unlike Kokuu, I can't easily leave you.
More so---
I'm no longer human...
I could be called a ghost...some kind of monster.
You think I can meet Kagerou in this form?
I can't embrace her with these hands...
It would just cause her pain.


Pg 176

Ouka:
Anyway, what would make me happy is if she forgot me. I wish she would get together with another man.
Like that Shigeo-dono! He's a great individual!!
[I will do anything to relieve her of her curse, just as you want!]
Understand, Recca!?
...The problem is...
Kurei.

Kokuu:
O-oh! He is also your child, Ouka-dono.
He just walks on a different path than Recca...
What's there to worry about?


Pg 177

Ouka:
Everything!!

Kokuu:
Uh...
A slip of the tongue! Forgive me...!

Ouka:
...No...it is fine...
...Recca also should---
He...I think he has truly had it hard...
...Long ago, it was a disaster...
To Kurei...!


Pg 178

Reina:
Wha...!
What are you saying, Elder-dono!! You can't say Kurei is a misfortune!!

Signs:
Third year of Tenshou (1575)
Hokage Village

Elder:
Since Kurei was born, [???]
I have had my feelings about that boy.
He has an evil heart---
His flame is cursed!!


Pg 179

Elder:
Endure, Ouka...
[With two children of the flame, that risks a situation of war.]
This unlucky phenomenon may destroy Hokage...
There is no other option!!
As a father, it will be difficult...But---
As a leader, endure...!!

Reina:
Hi-i...
No...
Kurei hasn't done anything...!!

Kagerou:
Please, wait!!
Killing children isn't the ninja's way!!


Pg 180

Kagerou:
For me, I beg of you...
Save Kurei's life...

Ouka:
Kagerou...

Narration:
But
[His face when he was about to be killed]
[Was just as the expression on his face when his life was saved...Kurei was emotionless]

Boys:
Get out of this village!!
Cursed boy, Kurei!
Die!!

Ouka:
Hey!! What are you doing!!

Boys:
Wah-ah, it's Ouka-sama!
Run!!


Pg 181

Ouka:
...
Is it hard...Kurei?
Sorry...
I'm your and Recca's father, as well as leader of Hokage...
[Even as a part of the family, I can't help you...]
Sorry...sorry...
...And then---
When Kurei was imprisoned for cutting you...
I had to treat him as a criminal.
[It is possible that it was just because of Kurei's cursed flame!!]
[His heart became evil!!]


Pg 182

Ouka:
Since he was born---
Kurei had a cursed childhood, and I continued to treat him as the "Hokage Leader"!
I tried to save him as a "Father"!
He was raised by "Mori Kouran"!
"Fate" has twisted Kurei!!

Kokuu:
Circumstances change a person...
[I also didn't believe him evil.]

Ouka:
The first time "Resshin" appeared in front of you...I could see Kurei's destroyed heart.
At that time, I gave him a warning blow.
...Of course, the power that could have killed didn't keep him down.
Speaking of which, you were going to get murdered!
At that time, you were rea---lly weak!!

Recca:
Nugu...

Ouka:
...
It pained me to see brothers fighting each other...
[I though you could team together.]


Pg 183

Recca:
B---u---t!!
I'm fine without him, anyway...he's an octopus!!

Kokuu:
Father and sons, three stubborn people.

Recca & Ouka:
I'm different!!!

Kokuu:
Point made.

Recca:
Anyway...What's this "cursed flame," Oyaji!
I was listening well but,
How do I and that guy have different flames!?

Ouka:
...You heard of the power of his flame from that woman Neon?
It holds a dead person's spirit within a flame!
In other words...it's different than your flame in that the flame dragons are souls of us flame masters that died---
His flame turns dead people into a part of his flame forever!!
The flame masters are different forms of flame...
The natural form of Kurei's flame is---


Pg 184

Ouka:
The Phoenix!!
