<In her daydream, Aoi looks out from her "tube">

Lab People:
0005, Aoi has no natural flame.
[However, for the rest she is in many ways more that "human".]
It's not enough.
It's dangerous.

Mori:
A failure


Pg 78

Chapter 304
---Final Battle---
Ninth Fight / Recca versus Aoi
(1) Conflicts


Pg 79

<Men fire guns down the hall, only to get knocked out themselves>
<Another guy sneaks behind Recca>

Genshin:
You've come!
These guys were unsatisfying, right?
Geshin-sama of the elite Kakutou clan will kill you with the "Kankeiten" madougu!!


Pg 80

<Recca smashes the guy's head into a wall>

Recca:
Where is Hime?
If you don't tell the truth, I'll slam you again!


Pg 81

<Genshin points weakly down the hall>
<Recca shakes the guy's hand>

Recca:
Thank you!
Wait for me, Hime!!
Just a little more!
In just a little bit, I'll save you!!!


Pg 82

Recca:
Is it here!

<Recca destroys the door with Nadare>


Pg 83

Recca:
Top form!

Aoi:
The door was open.
However, a monkey does destroy the peel so it can eat the banana…


Pg 84

Aoi:
It's been since we separated at school.
Recca-san

Recca:
You're Kagura…
No.
Aoi!

Aoi:
Fu-fu Looks like you've collected all of your memories.
[???]
[In others I've mentally manipulated, they don't regain the gaps.]

Recca:
[What I want to hear!!]
Hime…

Aoi:
She's alive.


Pg 85

Aoi:
But she isn't here.

Recca:
He lied.

Intercom:
…Route B…
…The game has ended!!
Kirito…lost the fight!!
Shiguma has been destroyed!! The living Kadotsu also died at the same time.
This is Route C!! Hiruko was defeated!!! The Hokage here want on ahead! Appears to have been Ishijima…
Route A!!! Ryuu Komaru got it! The opponents…Rasen and Kirin!! They are in contact with Kagerou!!
This is Route E!! Raiha killed Orochi!! Kirisawa defeated Raiha! Ishijima appeared---


Pg 86

Intercom:
Route G! Meguri Kyouza is dead!! Mikagami is going to the upper floor!!

Recca:
Everyone
Just like them!!!

Aoi:
Amazing.
Hokage is truly fearful.
The prediction that everyone would survive seems to be true.

Recca:
Of course, idiot!!!
[They're like cockroaches!!!]

Aoi:
…But the game hasn't completely evolved.


Pg 87

Aoi:
Maybe I should add another stimulus.
For instance, a dead leader

Recca:
I have nothing against you, fool. Where's Hime!?

Aoi:
Ku-su, ku-su.
This card key…
Is necessary for the door to the elevator to open. With this and the password you people obtained--- it'll take you to the room with Yanagi.


Pg 88

<Aoi starts bending the card>

Aoi:
In other words…

Recca:
Stop…
Stop it, Aoi!!!

<Aoi stops>

Aoi:
Aha-ha-ha-ha
Just joking, Recca-san! Don't get excited about it.
It's Game Start.

<Aoi places the card in her shirt>


Pg 89

<Recca eyes Aoi>


Pg 89

<He puts three fingers up>

Aoi:
?

Recca:
Is it okay to ask three things?
First!
Has Hime joined with Mori yet?

Aoi:
…She's still alive. However, very soon. Yanagi-chan and Mori-sama will become one!

Recca:
Second. What do you think about that?

<Aoi is shocked by the question and thinks a moment>

Aoi:
(Yanagi) If someone dies, surely others would be sad


Pg 91

Aoi:
(Yanagi) There's no such thing as a worthless person
(Yanagi) That's taking away your rights
(Mori) Failure
I…don't think about it.
I don't want to think about it!!

Recca:
Third! Are you---


Pg 92

Recca:
Man? Woman?
Your body…is it male.

Aoi:
Since I wore a skirt at school, didn't you know?

Recca:
Oh, right.
Then I won't hesitate!!

<Recca punches Aoi…guess she is technically a he?>


Pg 93

Aoi:
Fu-fu

<Aoi produces a blade from an arm madougu>

Aoi:
Now…release it
Let me see you release the flame


Pg 94/94

<Recca calls on Saiha, the fire blade>

Chapter 305
---Final Battle---
Ninth Fight / Recca versus Aoi
(2) World of the Deep Sea Fish


Pg 96

<Aoi stares at the fire blade>

Aoi:
Beautiful…


Pg 97

Aoi:
…I also…
wanted that.
I wanted that power.

<Aoi and Recca clash sword to "blade">


Pg 98

<Aoi knees Recca when his attack is blocked>


Pg 99

Recca:
Tsu…!!!
Gu-uh…

Aoi:
If I had that---
If I was partially like Renge…I wouldn't be called a failure.
[That "I can't compare as a human"---]
They wouldn't have said that…

Recca:
What are you talking about, Aoi!?

Aoi:
Recca-san---


Pg 100/101

Aoi:
Look at this aquarium, please.
At these disfigured species---
All of them are deep-sea fish.

Recca:
Deep-sea fish…
Don't they live in really deep parts of the ocean.

Aoi:
Yes. Normally, you can't see them.
In the sea, there are large water temperature layers, with the upper most layer and the lowest called the deep sea.
For every one meter, there's a one atmospheric pressure increase. Only the most special species can survive.
A dark world, void of light--- They would be at a loss of what to do in other than that world.
They can't survive except for there.
I am the same.


Pg 102

Aoi:
Is school enjoyable, Recca-san? I bet you have lots of friends.
What TV shows…actors do you like? Have you had that thing called love?
…You people are the fish that swim freely in the upper layer.
The world I live in---though plankton exist there, to survive I eat the corpses of other fish.
Through they want to go up into the upper world, the deep-sea fish can't…
But.
They (the fish in the aquarium)…aren't they here? Can't they swim here despite the light…and the pressure?
Why do you think that is?


Pg 103

Aoi:
With Mori-sama's cells. We made an improved breed.
Zombie deep sea fish.
…It's Mori-sama's dream world…
To return from the dark world sea to the upper sea!!
Normal creatures wouldn't be able to survive---
A world only for the deep-sea fish!!!


Pg 104

<Aoi shoots a gun, purposely missing Recca just barely with the bullet>

Aoi:
I want Mori-sama to create it.
Then I can also live in that world.


Pg 105

Aoi:
But…Something was necessary for it.
I had to prove that I was necessary for that world.
You see, Recca-san…I'm called "a failure" since I can't produce a flame like you and Renge---
Since I have an unstable mental state, I'm despised as a "dysfunctional product". No one ever gives me praise.
What could I do?
It was simple!
I want to exist in praise!!
Therefore…
I'll kill you people!!!


Pg 106

Aoi:
It was necessary to offer Yanagi-chan!!!

<Recca calls on Nadare>

Recca:
You...little…


Pg 107

Recca:
Stupid bitch---!!!

<The fireballs hit all around Aoi, not connecting>

Aoi:
The fireball of "Nadare"…
I also wanted this…
!
Not there?

<The smoke had clear, and Recca is gone>


Pg 108

<He appears behind Aoi, who had the gun still raised>

Recca:
Look you,
No matter what it takes, we'll definitely stop you. This isn't the world we want.
We swim in freedom!!!


Pg 109

<Recca punches Aoi>

Aoi:
Freedom…huh…
I also wanted that…
But
It's no longer possible
For a fish that forgot how to swim
Enough---


Pg 110

<Elsewhere, a door opens and two robed people (assuming "priests") lead Yanagi forward>

Priests:
We'll guide you…
To the Tendoujigoku…
Back to the Tendoujigoku…
