Pg 127

Kirito:
[Wait a moment before going.] Shiguma.
I'll tell you my story.
I don't know my real age.


Pg 128

Chapter 286
---Final Battle---
Third Fight/Koganei Joker versus Kirito
(2) Ageless Woman


Pg 129

Kirito:
The bracelet on my left hand---
Madougu "Rinne" (Note: Rinne ~ cycles of life)

Joker:
You're kidding...


Pg 130

Kirito:
The madougu's power---
It changes the age of the wearer's body!!!
Surprised, youngsters!!?
Uhya-hya-hya-hya-hya-hya!!!

Kaoru:
...Joker!
While she's a different age, that is also a different person! Did she switch?

Joker:
It's the same person! I didn't see her move!!

Kaoru:
I can't believe it!!

Kirito:
While convenient during my spy activities...there's a side effect.


Pg 131

Kirito:
There's a reaction to me forcefully changing my body.
Using my abilities brings the effect of changing my mental age along with my body's age.
23 years old---
14 years old---
65 years old---
And now...
Only 9 years old.
With my 9 year old body, it is me at nine--- with my granny body, it is me as a old woman---
I don't have a single consciousness at all. You could say I'm a person of changing personalities.


Pg 132

Joker:
...multiple personalities?
In that case, there aren't memories of the times as a different personality. So this seems a bit different.
The saying goes that the clothes can change a person's behavior, and perhaps this is true in a more complete sense.

Kirito:
At times...by accident--- I begin to wonder.
Am I about 26?
"Huh?" "Well then..."
"Which me is the real me?"
With that question, I became aware of my reality.
"I've forgotten my original self."


Pg 133

Kirito:
The memories from before I used Rinne are gone.
I thought about various things. The real me is what kind of person? What is my real age?
With my level of knowledge about mathematics, it seems I'm not in elementary school. Perhaps I'm some tottering old woman.
Every time I forcefully change myself, I believe that this time "I am the real me."
But I don't know.
I want to know.
Perhaps if I break the Rinne, there would be an answer. But---
With my curiosity, bear is born. Fear of knowing my true self.


Pg 134

Kirito:
But isn't that obvious?
What if I look in the mirror and it's an old woman! Even if I wanted to be the younger me, I couldn't without Rinne! I wouldn't be able to bear it.
Also, I don't only fear what form I would take, but I don't know what else could happen.
For instance, I like the feeling of being a girl witch.

Joker:
...hmph.
A surprising madougu.
Anyway
Question (3)
Among all those personalities, is there a kind natured age we can talk to?


Pg 135

Kirito:
I think there isn't one.
Would the play loving 14 year old make you happy enough?

Kaoru:
Abuha~~~!! I don't understand any more~~~!!

Joker:
Eh---i!! Try thinking more, Koganei-kun!!
I thought you had a better brain than Recca-san. Did I overestimate you!!?

Kirito:
The bracelet on my right hand---
Madougu "Nehan". (Note: Nehan ~ Nirvana)
It's power---


Pg 136

Kirito:
To control Shiguma!!


Pg 137

Kirito:
"Kill the Hokage ninja, and then I'll tell you who you really are." That's what Mori-sama told me.
There's no risk in learning about the real me that way, so this is the best option.


Pg 138

Kaoru:
Don't say idiotic things!!!
Neechan, don't you know what kind of person Mori is!!?
He's a man who doesn't act except for his own desires!!
No...
He's not even human!!
Hisui---


Pg 139

Kaoru:
And Kurei...!!!
With ill will, he throes them away!!
Surely, Neechan will be thrown aside as well!!!

Kirito:
Question (4)
So, can you tell me who the real me is?

Kaoru:
Well...
That is...


Pg 140

Kaoru:
Nowah---!!!

Joker:
Koganei-kun!!

Kaoru:
Bugya!!!


Pg 141

Kaoru:
Shit...
Third form...


Pg 142

Kirito:
Question (5)...
What could these be?


Pg 143

Kirito:
Question (5).
What could these be?

Kaoru:
Eggs?

Joker:
Food?

Kirito:
The answer---


Pg 144
Pg 145

Chapter 287
---Final Battle---
Third Fight/Koganei Joker versus Kirito
(3) Vow of a Rematch


Pg 146

Kaoru:
Nowah!?


Pg 147

Kirito:
Aha-ha-ha-ha-ha
Scared you?
Aha-ha-ha!!

Hiruko:
...More...
More blood...
!!?


Pg 148

Hiruko:
Th...these waves...
Shiguma!?

= Same moment Route C =


Pg 149

Fuuko:
Enough...
No more...

= Same moment Route E =

= Same moment Route A =

Mikagami:
What is that sound...?

= Same moment Route G =


Pg 150

Recca:
Hey, hey, hey!!
Again with that light!!!
Who is...fighting over there?

= Same moment Route F =


Pg 151

Kirito:
Aha-ha-ha-ha...
Huh?

Radio: ...

Kirito:
Understood.
The people in management are pretty upset! Shiguma---.
Let's follow the order to lower the power output---!?


Pg 153

Kirito:
Enough!!!
Hurry and charge for the next Madan!

Joker:
That's surprising...
It's a strong one, Koganei-kun! Can you beat?

Kaoru:
It's impossible now!

Joker:
Why?

Kaoru:
On that monster---
Kougon Anki is stuck!!


Pg 153

Joker:
Are you an imbecile!? No!! You aren't a different idiot that Recca-san!!!

Kaoru:
[???]

Joker:
That doesn't matter, fool!!!

Kaoru:
I wanted to hold onto it, but I could hold on!!

Joker:
@#&%*$# !!

Kaoru:
$@%#!!

Joker:
Because of that, we can't start!
Counter plan! Your target is to get it back!
However, you can't get Shiguma from below. You most likely couldn't reach!

Kaoru:
But Joker wouldn't be able to reach either, right!?

Joker:
Also, if you used that spider web...
You could get caught and you'd be munchies.

Kaoru:
So, what should we do!!


Pg 154

Joker:
Have you forgotten my power?
How about leaving Shiguma to me!
You can distract that woman barehanded, and stop her from doing anything!


Pg 155

Joker:
Don't forget.
You and I have one more fight!! Don't get yourself killed here!!

Kirito:
Fu...
Afterall, Shiguma likes in this form the best.
Now...once more, shall I call for Madan!!


Pg 156

Joker:
We can't screw up the timing! Otherwise...

Kaoru:
n!!
Let's go, Demon Witch---!!!

Kirito:
Hya-hya!!
Up to this point, you have been a kid that has depended on his madougu. Without it---
What can you do!?


Pg 157

Kaoru:
It's up to you
Joker!!!

Joker:
ku...
Tai...
Shaku...
Kai...
Ten!!!


Pg 158

Joker:
Juuryou Kekkai (Plus)!! (Note: Juuryou Kekkai ~ Earth's Gravity)
