Same moment

=Route A =
<Kagerou walks down a hallway>


Pg 7

Box: Kagerou (Hokage Ninja)

Kagerou:
Again
Again I'm being watched
Several times since I've entered SODOM have I felt someone's eyes on me
It's strange
This presence doesn't feel like an enemy…or an assassin
Rather…

<Kagerou opens a door>


Pg 8

<Kagerou is surprised to see a man lying on the floor, perhaps dead. She then sees a young woman>

Kagerou: !!?


Pg 9

Kirin:
He's Ryuu Kowaru of Ura Uruha.
He was originally a coworker. But since he got bothersome, I put him to bed.

Kagerou: …

Kirin:
You're Kagerou-san, right? Of course---
I'm Kirin-chan!!
Nice to meet you

Box: Kirin (Originally Ura Uruha)


Pg 10

Kagerou:
Coworker…? Then you're also Ura…
!

<Door swings open and Rasen enters>

Box: Rasen (Originally Uruha/originally Ura Uruha)


Pg 11

Kagerou:
---Those eyes watching me!!
Those that I have felt many times…
Who is he?
An enemy!?

Kirin:
He is Rasen.
As you say, it was he that was watching you…such is Recca-kun's Mama!!

Kagerou:
I see.
I've heard about you from Recca and his friends. It's you two, right?
"The girl who reads the heart" (Kirin) and "The one who makes everything disappear" (Rasen)!!


Pg 12

Kirin:
Yep.
Rasen can make anything disappear. Water, iron, and even humans!
He can probably even make your curse of eternal life disappear.


Pg 13

<Kirin puts on her Houkishin madougu>

Kirin:
However!
If I can kill you! That won't be necessary, would it?
I'll give it a try, Kagerou-san!!
Houkishin!!!


Pg 14

<Kagerou dodges the attack>

Kirin:
Come!!
Kagerou!!!

<In the past…>

Rasen:
I have the feeling I've found what I've been searching for, Kirin.


Pg 15

Rasen:
I will…
Make the curse of Hanabishi Recca's mother disappear.

Kirin:
What are you saying, Rasen!!?
Have you forgotten the power of the Koukaigyoku? To make large things disappear, a proportional… You also lose something equal to it!!
To make such a powerful curse disappear, you yourself…
!!

Rasen:
I have found "the time I can die."


Pg 16

<Present time, Kagerou counterattacks>

Kirin:
She is strong!!!
She's closed her heart, so I can't read her moves!!
This is the real power of a female ninja!!
Even so, I'll kill her!!


Pg 17

<Back to the past>

Kirin:
Why!!!
Why save Recca-kun's Mama!?

Rasen:
He also suffers because of his mother. He carries that burden when he fights…
An enemy like me, who had thrown away his burden…He scolded me for it with his bottomless heart.
That simply…gave me a feeling like joy.
With my own power, I made my mother disappear, and she will never return again.

Kirin:
…the emotionless Rasen…?
Until now…

Rasen:
Therefore, except for him… Isn't it probable that I couldn't have set myself free from this pain?


Pg 18

Rasen:
To help a heart similar to mine, even if it makes me disappear, it's my wish.
I'm leaving to meet Kagerou.

Kirin:
…true…
But…Kagerou's curse is "immortality"…then doesn't she "wish for death"?
Before you use the Koukaigyoku, can't I try?
If I can kill Kagerou---
Rasen won't disappear?
Can't I be with Rasen always!?


Pg 19

<Present time, the women are still at it>

Kirin:
I!!!
Love Rasen!!
Really love him!!
I don't have anything against you!!
Your son Recca-kun wants to save you!
But…

Kagerou: !?

Kirin:
Don't take Rasen from me!!!


Pg 20

<Kagerou notices the fox cub>

Kagerou:
Don't come!!!

<Kirin fires her madougu, and Kagerou is wounded while protecting the cub>


Pg 21

Kagerou:
…you followed me all this way?
You hopeless thing…
You'll be in danger getting beneath us.


Pg 22

<Spikes fall from Kagerou's back and her wounds heal>


Pg 23

Kagerou:
I'm a woman without death.
I cannot die…

Kirin:
Im…possible!
Those spikes were wetted with poison…!!

Kagerou:
There's pain…suffering as well. But---
It's meaningless.

Kirin:
Ku…
Even so, no matter how many times, no matter!!!
I will try my hardest to kill you!!!


Pg 24

<Kirin halts her attack when Rasen walks in front of Kagerou>


Pg 25

Kagerou:
The poison is still
I can't move…

<The cub gets riled up>

Rasen:
…when you saved the fox cub---
You seemed like "mother", Kagerou…


Pg 26

Rasen:
I…
Since that day, I haven't seen again…
The kind form of a mother.


Pg 27

Rasen:
Truly…I am envious…
of Hanabishi Recca.

Kagerou: !?

Kirin:
Wait!!! Rasen!!!!
Just a little more…Give me just a little more time!!!

Rasen:
I believe I'm saving a person who at least feels like my mother.
…For thing up until now, thank you…
Kirin…

<Kirin bursts into tears>


Pg 28

Chapter 291
---Final Battle---
Fifth Fight / Kagerou versus Rasen
Kirin
(2) Woman with Death

<Rasen activates his madougu>

Rasen:
I'll make the immortal curse spoiling your body disappear!
Kagerou!!!


Pg 29

Rasen:
Hanabishi Recca!
That day I fought with you…through Kirin's link, I felt your terrible power…
The desire to save the healing girl…
The thought of saving your mother!!
You can't save your mother!!!


Pg 30

<Something appears above Kagerou, and then Rasen collapses>


Pg 31

Rasen:
Sorry…
Kirin…
At this rate…
I'll disappear like mother…


Pg 32

<Rasen's eyes go wide as the spirit of his mother appears over him>

Rasen's mother:
It'll be okay…


Pg 33

Rasen:
I can see…Mom…
She's smiling…
How?
I made her disappear!!
How…is this…!!?

<Kirin hugs Rasen>


Pg 34

Kirin:
Ueeeeen. Eeeeeeen.

Rasen:
Why…didn't I disappear?

<The Koukaigyoku lies broken on the ground>

Kagerou:
Although the Koukaigyoku is powerful, the immortality curse is beyond its limits.
The madougu itself was broken by the power of the curse.
The evil that has taken so much from you, is dead.
…You mother…surely forgave you from the beginning.
As a mother, I can say that.


Pg 35

Kagerou:
You mother came to save you so you wouldn't disappear, too.
Rasen-kun.

<Rasen begins to cry>


Pg 36

Kagerou:
He still has many emotions that he hasn't lost.
It was because of his feelings of guilt that he hardened his heart and shut it tight.
But, it'll certainly be all right.
Since he's able to forgive himself.


Pg 37

<A tail wagging pup draws Kagerou's attention>

Kagerou:
My.

<He jumps onto her>

Kagerou:
You can't, you~~~ How many times do I have to tell you to return to the forest…
Ow!
This is what happens when you get excited…

<Kagerou looks at her scratched hand>

Kagerou:
…It's not healing…

<She cries looking at her hand>


Pg 38

Kagerou:
…Recca…
I have to tell Recca…
