(Kai) Your sister's killer is---
(Kai)
Meguri Kyouza!!!
Ku…
Get a hold of yourself!!


Pg 149

Mikagami:
It's been a long time, Master… You haven't changed---

Masked Man:
Is it okay to put I here?

<And he places a sword into the ground>


Pg 150

Mikagami:
That is!!?
Kai's…Hyoumaen!!?

Meguri:
Mikagami…
[Beforehand, I know you are upset over something.]
That being so, would you cut these shackles?

Mikagami:
…I didn't come here wanting to fight with you.
I came to learn about everything!
I have something I want to ask!
My sister…

Meguri:
Mikagami---


Pg 151

Meguri:
Would you cut these shackles.

<Frustrated, Mikagami does cut them>

You've gotten good, Mikagami>

No.
I'll wait a little longer to see.


Pg 153

Meguri:
It's been a long time, let's try crossing swords.

Mikagami:
Please wait!!
There's something I want to hear!!!

Meguri:
It's been a long time,
let's try crossing swords.


Pg 154

Masked Man:
Fuhya-hya-hya!!!
He is truly one stubborn old man!!
Aoi-san told me, "If you don't want to die, treat him politely"! When giving him food and water, he never opened his mouth! Refused to say anything.
You won't hear anything from, colorful guy!

<Meguri wounds Mikagami>


Pg 155

Mikagami:
Gu-uh…!!

Meguri:
Mikagami---
My body is stained red.
With every one strike of the sword… little by little…
I won't tell the truth otherwise.

Mikagami:
(Meguri) You give me one blow by the sword
(Meguri) And then today's lesson's are over


Pg 156

Mikagami:
At that time, I wasn't able to get one in even to the end…\

<Mikagami goes in for an attack>

Meguri:
That's a water puppet.


Pg 157

Meguri:
Over here.

<Meguri slices into a Mikagami, but it turns out to be water>

Masked Man:
Ah!!?

Meguri:
O-oh!

<Mikagami draws blood from Meguri>


Pg 158

Masked Man:
What!?
What'd he do, that longhaired guy!!?

Meguri:
Ho-ho! You've truly gotten good!
Shifting your ki to the puppet! Well done!
For that, I'll tell you one thing. First, your sister's killer---

Mikagami:
(Kai) Your sister's killer is Meguri Kyouza!!!
It's a lie…
It has to be a lie!!!

Meguri:
That is…
Without a doubt, Meguri Kyouza.


Pg 159

Mikagami:
(Meguri) Eat
(Meguri) Is it good?
(Young Mikagami) Awful
(Young Mikagami) Nee-chan's food was delicious
(Meguri) Tokiya


Pg 160

Mikagami:
(Meguri) Do you hate the one who killed your sister?
(Young Mikagami)
I hate him!!!
(Young Mikagami) I'll kill him! I'll kill him!!
(Young Mikagami)
I'll kill him without a doubt!!!
(Meguri) If so, don't forget
(Meguri) To accomplish that, you need to advance and fall into hell
(Meguri) Crawl out of hell with the power of the demons
(Meguri) And then the day you meet with your sister's killer,
(Meguri) Don't forget
(Meguri) [Slay the deception]


Pg 161

Chapter 299
---Final Battle---
Seventh Fight / Mikagami versus Meguri
(2) Master and Pupil

Mikagami:
You're lying…


Pg 162

Mikagami:
I don't believe what you're saying!!!
I saw the murderer at that time!!!
Stop lying to me!!!
Where is the killer…
Since that day, with family, I…
Raising me…Making me stronger…
Weren't you my benefactor.


Pg 163

Meguri:
Come, Mikagami.
There are more interesting things to say.

Mikagami:
Please, tell me a bit more!!
The truth!!!

Meguri:
I told you one truth.
For the next one, you must stain this body with red again.

Mikagami:
What's that sound…
!

<Meguri attacks>


Pg 164

<Mikagami blocks>

Masked Man:
He-eh.
That longhaired guy he called Mikagami. He isn't bad!
He equally matches Meguri Kyouza in swordplay!
(Aoi) That man isn't an ordinary old man, that Meguri Kyouza
(Aoi) He's Uruha Jyusshinshuu's best swordsman


Pg 165

Masked Man:
(Aoi) It you don't keep an eye on him, you'll lose your head
Aoi-san called that Raiha a dangerous element…
But…
Wait…

Mikagami:
…since long ago, once he's decided something, there's no bending him.
Once he closed his mouth, there's no way to open it!
Therefore…


Pg 166

<Mikagami is wounded, but Meguri is as well>

Meguri:
[It's good you've come around, Mikagami.]
I'll tell you a truth.
I am a member of Uruha.
The Uruha wanted madougu---


Pg 167

Mikagami:
(Meguri) …Tokiya, what do you have?
(Meguri) Let me see it
(Young Mikagami) No
(Young Mikagami) I have to protect it
(Young Mikagami) At Nee-chan's last moment, she gave it to me to protect!
(Meguri) Do you…know its true form?
(Meguri) When you dip it in water, it becomes sharpened
(Meguri) What a pathetic blade! You're inexperienced!!
(Meguri) I can't hold onto the water now, and it's a hundred years too early for you to attack your sister's killer!


Pg 168

Mikagami:
(Meguri) Its name is "Ensui"
(Meguri) To bring the guilty one to justice, drop to hell with the Water Blade of Hell
(Meguri) Use that sword with its water power and learn Hyoumonken…
(Meguri) [And then your opponents will fear your devilish nature]
…If so---
If that's the truth--- if you killed my sister to steal the Ensui as "Uruha Meguri Kyouza," you didn't take the Ensui from her!
Afterwards, she placed it in my hand--- There were several opportunities for you to steal it, but it wasn't taken!!
That is also---
A lie!


Pg 169

Meguri:
It's the truth.
Let's continue this death match, Mikagami…

<Meguri coughs up blood>

Mikagami:
Master!!?

Masked Man:
I knew it!! That old man!! It's because he hasn't had anything in ten days!!
Even though he's an Uruha swordsman, his body is in bad shape!!!
Hey!! Mikagami!!!
Despite what you know or don't know, stop this!!


Pg 170

Masked Man:
I don't want to see a tottering old man get killed…
It gives me a bad feeling. Please stop…

Mikagami:
I can't stop this now!!
[I'll pursue this to the Master's death.]
So I say.
I know fully that the Master isn't telling me lies!
His words are truth!!!
However, I know there must be the
real truth within this!!!


Pg 171

Mikagami:
But…
If this fight accelerates, the Master will surely…!!!
(Young Mikagami) It's okay if you don't teach me this stuff
(Young Mikagami) Teach me the sword
(Meguri) You fool
(Meguri) Do you want to devote your entire life only to revenge?
(Meguri) There are literary and military arts
What can I do!!?


Pg 172

<Mikagami remembers being ill as a child and Meguri taking care of him>


Pg 173

Mikagami:
Father and Mother…and Nee-chan are dead!!
As the only one to save me, Meguri Kyouza is
The Master is
Another father


Pg 174

Meguri:
Mikagami… I told you.
[With your sister's killer before you, when you meet him slay at the deception!!!]
Slay me!!
And then you'll know everything!!!

Mikagami:
(Kai) Realize that there's not just death remaining
(Kai) Don't follow my path


Pg 175

Mikagami:
That's right…
Kai!!!
You taught me that…!
There's still---
Something I can do!!!

<The Ensui blade turns into an icicle>


Pg 176

Masked Man:
Hey, you're continuing this!!!
It's enough already---!!
