Pg 5

Mikagami:
I can sense the weakening in Master's body.
If he had his true power, even though I have the longer sword, thus wouldn't have been a match.
What is the purpose of fighting with me?
He's hiding the truth!!
…now
I'll bring him peace

Chapter 300:
---Final Battle---
Seventh Fight / Mikagami versus Meguri Kyouza
(3) Truth


Pg 8
Pg 9

<Mikagami starts his ice snake attack>

Meguri:
Are you going to use the rest of the sword to form "the snake"?
Have you decided on a final, single blow, Mikagami!!


Pg10

Mikagami:
Hyounaru Hebi!!!

Guy:
Wh…What is that!!?
A snake…
An ice snake!!?


Pg 11

<Meguri smirks and blocks the large ice snake>


Pg 12

Meguri:
Ho-ho! What a heavy snake! It works this old body's heart.
Such is the nature of the metal you hold, Mikagami!
However---
!?

<The ice snake twists to wrap itself around Meguri and his arm>

Meguri:
My arm is trapped!?
Impossible…

Mikagami:
At the end of Kai's life or death battle with me, he took his own life.


Pg 13

Mikagami:
(Kai) Don't die…
With his own weapon.

<Mikagami shows the Ensui, a dagger of blood>

Mikagami:
After a short time, I could tell.

Meguri:
A blade of blood

Mikagami:
That I can end this fight with one blow.

Meguri:
With that trump card…!!!

Hyoumaen:
Blood!!! Give me blood!!
Blood to this Hyoumaen! Mikagami's blood!!!

Mikagami:
Drink up.


Pg 14

<Mikagami stabs the madougu's kaku, shattering the weapon>


Pg 15

Guy:
Of course!!
With the weapon destroyed, the swordsman…!!

Mikagami:
Master…Meguri Kyouza.
It's "Game Over".

<Meguri smiles>

Meguri:
You have a nice face with a smile.
You have changed, Mikagami.


Pg 16

<Mikagami looks on in shock as Meguri coughs up blood and drops to his knees>

Mikagami:
Master!?

Meguri:
Don't worry… I knew my time of death was near. Would have within three days…
You came in time.
Finally I can tell you of my crime against Mifuyu…
And then…
I can discard this disgusting name.


Pg 17

Meguri:
I'll tell the whole truth…
To my grandson Tokiya---

<Mikagami's eyes open wide in surprise>

Meguri:
Eight years ago…

<Flashback to Meguri's place>

Mifuyu:
I can't allow that!!!


Pg 18

Mifuyu:
Tokiya is just nine years old!!!
After losing our parents, I can't allow the young boy to do this!!

Meguri:
I will teach Tokiya Hyoumonken.
Up to this point, the man I've taught has died, thus I must teach his son.

Mifuyu:
Don't say such selfish things, Grandfather!!
You didn't even come to Dad and Mom's funeral!!!
Your own child died…sword…sword…don't you feel any sadness?
Anyhow, Tokiya…doesn't even know of your existence…

Meguri:
Hyoumonken is a necessary tradition.


Pg 19

Meguri:
Whenever things begin to happen, the inheritors of the Hokage ninja will fight in the struggle for the madougu!!
Hyoumaen and Ensui have been passed down our family to protect them. Our ancestors were born to Hyoumonken! The next generation must inherit these two madougu.
It may be hard on young Tokiya, but it is the law of this family.
[You may take him, but I will teach him!!]

Mifuyu:
[To receive the protection from Dad…]
[Because of that thing…]
[…if you say by all costs…]
I'll take the responsibility from him.


Pg 20

Mifuyu:
I will become "Meguri Kyouza".
Just leave the boy alone…

<End flashback>

Meguri:
"Kyouza revolves" {Note: "Kyouza" is literally "throne of madness" while "Meguri" does mean "revolve"}
Meguri Kyouza isn't a person's name. It's placed on the inheritor of the Hyoumonken title.

Mikagami:
Nee…san…{Note: remember, neesan is sister}


Pg 21

Mikagami:
Neesan…
For my sake, as my replacement
Hyoumonken…!!?

Meguri:
While raising you, for a year Mifuyu learned the sword---
Then that day came.

<Another flashback begins as Meguri finishes beheaded someone>

Large Man:
Fuhn.
Unmistakably, it's a madougu!
You probably won't obediently hand it over.

Meguri:
Who are you?


Pg 22

Jishou:
I'm Jishou.
We have orders. To gather the large number of madougu. For instance, to get the Ensui and Hyoumaen!

Meguri:
He knows of the Ensui!!?
Impossible!!!

<Two men enter the room where Mifuyu and Mikagami are hiding>


Pg 23

<Mifuyu eyes the sink, dripping with water>

Mifuyu:
Water…
With Ensui…!!
I have to protect Tokiya…!!!

<A shorthaired man attacks>

Mifuyu:
Watch out!!!
Tokiya!!


Pg 24

<Mifuyu is stabbed in the back>
<End flashback>

Meguri:
The two that directly killed Mifuyu…were minions under Mori Kouran---
They were people of a unit that was the origin of the current Ura Uruha.


Pg 25

<Flashback of Mifuyu being killed>

Mikagami:
Oneechan!!!
Mifuyu oneechaaaaaan!!!

Mifuyu:
To…ki…

Mikagami:
Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah!!

Shorthaired Guy:
What should we do with that kid?

Longhaired Guy:
Kill 'im.
Afterwards, we can look for that "Ensui".


Pg 26

<The two men are suddenly struck with fear>

Mikagami:
Those two…
Oneechan…!
Oneechan!!!

Shorthaired Guy:
Hey…!!
What's …with that evil killing spirit!? From that kid!?

Longhaired Guy:
It can't be!!!
Something…
is coming here!!!


Pg 27

Longhaired Guy:
Something is wrong!!!
The Ensui comes later!! Let's get out of here!!!

Mifuyu:
Pro…tect this…
This is…for Tokiya…to protect…
Tokiya…
protect…

Mikagami:
Oneechaan


Pg 28

<End of flashback>

Meguri:
…Now that I think about it, it's strange.
At that time, Mifuyu wouldn't let you, her little brother, concern yourself with Hyoumonken…
Why did she pass the Ensui to you.
Perhaps it flows in the family's blood to pass on Hyoumonken…
Or perhaps she wished it to be like your father's keepsake…Whichever---
She said you must "protect it".

<Flashback, the two men are running through the forest>

Shorthaired Guy:
Uh!!!


Pg 29

<They see an angry Meguri up ahead>

Chapter 301:
---Final Battle---
Seventh Fight / Mikagami versus Meguri Kyouza
(4) Revenge by Death


 Pg 30

<Longhaired Guy is sliced into bloody bits>

Shorthaired Guy:
Uwa!! Uwa-ah-ah!!!
Hya-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah!!!
!!


Pg 31

Shorthaired Guy:
Jishou-san? Sa, save me!!
That old man is after us…
Why are you silent…
Hi…
Hya-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah!!!

<Shorthaired Guy also becomes doggy treats>


Pg 32

Jishou:
So there is one called Meguri…Kyouza…
I truly apologize for this…
While they and I have the same master…their ways really disgusted me.
Doing that…to a female child that couldn't fight…
However…Because she held the madougu, it was necessary…

Meguri:
Mifuyu…

Jishou:
…Actually, this time my master has different intentions. That man's son is forming a new "Uruha". I am a member of it!
He is but a boy…I know he'll be something in the future!!


Pg 33

Jishou:
Give me your hand and stand!! I am to take you to meet Kurei-san!! If you become a member, it won't be necessary to take your madougu!!
Make this the final sadness!!!
Come, Meguri Kyouza!!

Meguri:
The death of Mifuyu…
Wasn't because of those people
The killer
Was me with…
The title of Meguri Kyouza!!!

Pg 34

Meguri:
You had within you a strong swordsman
I taught you to kill people
To hold onto that revenge

<End flashback, Meguri coughs up more blood>

Mikagami:
Master!!?

Meguri:
…Tokiya, I…taught everything about the sword to my son…to my grandson…!


Pg 35

Meguri:
[At least you wanted the power.]
[You thought to take revenge.]

Mikagami:
You…in order to protect me…
Joined Uruha…!!

Meguri:
When seven years of training ended, you left the mountain---
The swordsman named Kai appeared.
I planned to "make a message board of this man". I used him, told Kai unjust words.
Once Tokiya had beaten that man, I thought our time to fight would come.


Pg 36

Meguri:
I wanted you to take revenge against the so-called Meguri Kyouza.
After that, in order to oppose Hokage (including you) and Uruha--
Knowing that I was without the Ensui, Mori Kouran came back to my place.
I entrusted myself to Mori with simply one condition.

<Flashback to Meguri imprisonment>

Aoi:
Ne, Meguri-san, news update
Your master Kurei fell into the sea and died
From now on…will you work as Ura Uruha?

Meguri:
It makes no difference…


Pg 37

Meguri:
The fight with Mikagami Tokiya must come…
The time is here…

<End flashback, Meguri is lying down with Mikagami kneeling near him>

Meguri:
Tokiya…
Kill me.
Take your sister's revenge…

<Mikagami touches Meguri's hand, to the old man's surprise>


Pg 38

Mikagami:
I won't take revenge on you.
More than my master---
You're family.
Before coming here, I met with my sister.
She was smiling.
I don't know if she was an illusion. But…surely she forgives you.
It's enough, you shouldn't blame yourself…!!


Pg 39

<Meguri is surprised, and then smiles>

Meguri:
After all…you…have changed, Tokiya!
Your cold ways…have warmed…
Tell me…
Leaving the mountain---what did you see? What did you learn? What melted your ice?

Mikagami:
Kai…he told me various things.
To me as a loner---he made me realize I wasn't alone.

Meguri:
Is that…so…he did…

Mikagami:
I've never been alone.


Pg 40

Mikagami:
My many friends---
helped change me.


Pg 41

<Meguri dies peacefully, and Mikagami remembers the good times>


Pg 42

Mikagami:
I'm sorry.
Take care of him.

Guy:
I'm not doing this for you!!
I'm this old man's caretaker! Since the least I can do is bury him!
I didn't hate him…the old guy/ He talked a lot.

Mikagami:
Master…

Guy:
About your story.

Mikagami:
Grandfather…
I won't inherit the Meguri Kyouza name
That name isn't necessary anymore
The entire fight ends
Kyouza won't revolve again
