Chapter 258: Antithese

Mokuren:
...oh yeah---
There's one more thing that disgusts me about you.
"I'll protect Hime"?
It's a nauseating, hateful phrase.
Do you have the brains of a maggot?


Pg 6

Mokuren:
Kurei had also said, it's just for your self-satisfaction.
In the end, humans believe themselves to be the most pitiful.
[From the saintly prince and down, all are exactly the same!!]
Everyone can do "anything" for themselves!!


Pg 7

Mokuren:
Do you really believe your words?
Can you face Sakoshita Yanagi with such vanity?
With such narcissism?
You're a hypocrite!
I'm different...
I admit I'm the most important person.
I live true to my own feelings.


Pg 8
Pg 9

Kuukai:
O-oh!!

Mokuren:
...ku-ku...ku-ha-ha...
The dragons of fire...has no effect---!!!


Pg 10

Recca:
Buah...
!
Your back, Pops!!!


Pg 11

Mokuren:
No, yours.

Recca:
Shi...

Kuukai:
Recca-ah---!!


Pg 12

Mokuren:
ku-ku-ku...
You can't use your mighty flame dragons within water?
ku-hya-hya-hya-hya!!

Kuukai:
Rec...


Pg 13

Kuukai:
Mokuren...

Mokuren:
He'll be a drowned body soon enough.
It's truly the end of that guy.
It shows you must live only for yourself.

Kuukai:
...you're wrong...
He is...Recca is...
We came here because there is a guy like him!!


Pg 14

Kuukai:
...Within Recca is a savior!
Recca changes people!
While fighting, bonds are created---
Everyone becomes a part of his power, and so we came here!!!
The selfish one is you!!
You're the one to be pitied, Mokuren!!

Mokuren:
I don't get it.
In other words---all of you are hypocrites, and are fine with it.
Anyway, your precious Recca is dead.
You're next.


Pg 15

Kuukai:
Recca...
...!
Warm...? No...hot!?
The water is...
The water is being heated...!!
This is!!?

Mokuren:
Gubu...


Pg 16

Mokuren:
Ha-go-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah!!
H, h, h, h, hot!!
How!?
In water...how could...he do anything!!?

Kuukai:
I don't understand...!
The flame dragons shouldn't be able to hurt Mokuren within water!!
What's happening...!?


Pg 17

Kuukai:
!!
Could it be...
Could it be!!
Ha!!!


Pg 18
Pg 19
Pg 20

Kuukai:
Of course...Homura
As the whip flame, Homura can enter inside the body of the tree and burn the innards!!
Within Mokuren's body, it would experience minimal effect from the water!!

Mokuren:
Gi-i-i-ya-ah-ah-ah!!

Recca:
Back alive!!!


Pg 21

Chapter 259: Mokuren's Life

Pg 22

Mokuren:
Gu-ga-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah!!!


Pg 23

Kuukai:
The tree dragon has been shredded...!
Even being held under water wasn't able to extinguish him
Knowing that the inside of the body would burn up---
Hanabishi Recca is fearsome!!

Mokuren:
Gufu...!!


Pg 24

Recca:
...Mokuren.

Mokuren:
You...you bastard, get down!!!

Recca:
Earlier, you called me a "hypocrite".
I don't really understand.
I'm not fighting for some grand, righteous cause.
For instance---even if someone told me "A meterorite is going to crash into Earth, so we need to send you in a rocket to break it, [I wouldn't definitely say no.]
[I wouldn't want to do it.]


Pg 25

Recca:
I live true to my feelings.
[I can do things I shouldn't be able to!!]
I love Hime's laughing face!
It's the most important thing in the world, and I think I act so I can see it!
Even if she doesn't want to laugh, I'd force her to!
The reason, "To see it"!!
I'm no hypocrite!!

Mokuren:
Then don't say you're protecting a life!!
You certainly hold yourself to be the most important!!!


Pg 26

Recca:
You can deny that human life is special?
Everyone in the world who thinks like you is absolutely wrong.


Pg 27

Recca:
In people, I...
Huh?
Hu-uh?

Kuukai:
State of oxygen depravation, huh---
That's the only reason you shouldn't try to live in water.
Good fight...Recca!
Truly, from you...comes a marvelous spirit!


Pg 28

Kamui:
Hey---!!

Kuukai: !

Kamui:
Hurry and escape, you guys---!!
This dome is going to blow soon!!

Kuukai:
What's...this? Who...?

Kamui:
A self-destruct code was entered from Hell or Heaven!!
Since I've been in this dome, I read the program!!
I can't stop it!
In less than three minutes, there'll be a huge explosion!!!

Kuukai:
Three minutes...[what else to do].


Pg 29

Mokuren:
You...slipped up, Recca...still...

Mikoto:
It's over, Mokuren...


Pg 30

Mikoto:
In the end, he won't lose.
Sucks to be you...

Mokuren:
What are you saying!? I can still!!
This isn't the end!!
Next time, I'll do it. At that time...

Mikoto:
You called this "the final battle"...

Mokuren:
...Your eyes no longer...

Mikoto:
Un, I can't see a thing...
Mokuren...I...
Was happy.
I'm glad I met you.


Pg 31

Mokuren:
...shi...
Are you stupid!? Wasn't it I who stabbed you!?
Is this vanity?
Simply self-satisfaction!?

Mikoto:
I think you're wrong...
Probably---
I became one with you.


Pg 33

Mokuren:
One?

Mikoto:
Un. What happens to Mokuren, happens to me, too...
What Mokuren wants...I do it---
We became one with our hearts.

Mokuren:
...shi...
Because I listened to your stupid story, there isn't time to run!
What do you want, bitch!!

Mikoto:
Fu-fu-fu...to be Mokuren's most important thing...


Pg 33

Kamui:
It's happening---!!

Kuukai:
Hurry!! Just a little more!!

Mikoto:
...neh...Mokuren...


Pg 34

Mikoto:
It's...okay to sleep...
You are probably tired...?
It's enough...sleep...
I'm...tired...


Pg 35

Mokuren:
ku...ku-ku-ku...! ku-ku-ku-ku-ku-ku-ku-ku-ku-ku!!!
HANABISHI RECCA!!!!
Next time!!
The next time we fight...you'll be the next one to die!!!
Until I beat you, it's not over!!!


Pg 36

Mokuren:
Hya-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha!!!


Pg 37

Narration:
Nagai Mokuren
[Betrayed the forth level Uruha to go to Uru Uraha]
His favorite madougu is the tree attribute "Kodama"


Pg 38

Narration:
All things are composed of the five elements
Plant, fire, earth, metal, and water are called "the five lines"
[Could it have been a simple accident that four people within the Hokage have these madougu]
And there's only one among the enemy who is a plant man
All people possess five important things: virtue, righteousness, courtesy, wisdom, and faith. These are called the "five natures"
Plant controls virtue, fire courtesy, earth faith, metal righteousness, and water wisdom
[Of the true "five lines," the plant spirit becomes "virtue-less"]
The man without virtue, Mokuren the Kodama
Right now on the verge of yelling with the conviction of a devil
[He won't be unable to a second time]
