*Diiiing doooong*
*diiiing doooong*
Karino: There's... someone in... there... alright./Just... as I... thought... That Observer...

005
Karino: really is... the master... of half-baked jobs.//How...//PATHETIC!

006
Towada: *crunch crunch*/*munch...*//How strange. I'm pretty sure the door was locked properly.
Karino: Sorry to... disturb you... during your meal/but get out of... this body... please... If you comply I'll allow you... to escape... with your life.

007
Towada: UUUH?! Who the hell do you think you are?!//After all he trouble I went through to track that delicious smell and get my hands on this body?/And whatever plans you have for her, the girl's bound to get hurt either way, right?

008
Karino: Why... do they all have... to come up... with the same threats...?/I... just

009
Karino: can't stand... you primitive... fools...
Towada: ?!

010
Towada: !!//Hmpgh!
Karino: ... I really... hate it.../when someone... tries to hurt... my students...

011
Towada: Wha... The Hell! LOOK WHO'S TALKING!
Karino: You... have been... warned... Now... you die...
Towada: Wai... wait!/Wait a minute please!!

012
Karino: Mm-hmm... What... is it?/Are you... willing... to get out... of Towada-san?
Towada: Gimme a break. I can't do that!/I'm dead meat if I don't get inside someone!!
Karino: .........//...You... want to live? In that... case/...you'll have... to become one... of my students too...

013
Towada: ...Uh?//Hic
Karino: ...Protect... her.//Stay hidden... in the dark corners... of her consciousness... Towada... Sayoko..../is your... reliquary... Live to... protect her...

014
Karino: Do so... and...//I won't... eliminate... you.
Towada: Got... I got it! I understand!
Karino: You... promise...?
Towada: I... I do!!
Karino: ... Good.

015
Karino: Very well... Be sure to... run a clean... establishment... then. Should you... ever "devour"... Towada-san.../I'd remove you.... the next... second.//Well... I'm off
Towada: ........//...What the hell's wrong with that one...?/She outclasses me completely... power-wise![tn: The Japanese expression "Yakusha ga ue" could translate as “her game is [one step] above my own."]

016
Gengo: Hey there!/I told you so, didn't I? Karino-sensei's not our enemy. There's nothing to worry about.
Ishtar: Worm...!//What could you.../...possibly know..........?

017
Gengo: (It seems like my teacher could understand everything about that girl./It's like she could actually read her like an open book.//Teacher. Who in the world are you...?)

018
Gengo: (Gotta admit... She's steaming hot. Boorish and violent, yes./But she can be really, really cute...)//!//(My... my body...!/Acting of it's own accord...?!)

019
Gengo: (He... Hey!//Heeeey?!//This is the end... My life is over.../She'll strike me with lightning. Burn me to a crisp.)//!

020
Gengo: (...Eh?//...This girl...//She's the woman I saw... in Mutsume's memories?!)

021
Ishtar: ?/: Aah. A bird? It's a raven.
Gengo: ... Now that's funny.
Ishtar: How so?/(It's a raven, period.)
Gengo: Well, it's just that... I thought birds usually had trouble seeing stuff at night... y' know?
Ishtar: !

022
Ishtar: Hell... That's yet another one!!
Gengo: Oooooow./Boooo-hooo.
Ishtar: Just how many of them.../are there lurking in this town...?

023
Shades: Oh my. I've been found out, I have.//Dang it... It's really crowded in here, for such a small town./If it's a coincidence, it's a fairly huge one.//Welcome back!//...You!

024
Shades: You are a bad boy. You've failed, haven't you?!//...Is my position compromised? No........./There's no way the Observer's picked it up......... is there?//Did my little guy get busted by someone who's not even an Observer...?/Shoot... Guess I shouldn't have burned him down.

025
Shades: No smell... Still, a lot of people have a very good nose.//And a lot of folks got me high on their hit list, too.//... Better yet. They only dispatched that one Observer for surveillance...? It's not like the Headquarters actually know where to look, is it?//Something's cooking on this planet.../No... In this town. What on Earth is it?

026
Shades: ...Anyway... Time to get some cleaning up done.
Gal: Unh. No./We can't do that here.
Boy: Come on. Just a kiss. Nothing more than a little kiss.
Gal: Alright, alright. Guess there's no way around it.

027
Shades: And that's where I say "Stop"!
Couple: !
Shades: Hahahaha. Youth is such a beautiful thing./Sorry for spoiling your fun.//But bear with me for a minute!
Boy: What the hell do you want?!
Shades: Easy, pal, easy. Let us dispense with the small talk, shall we?//For now... Uh-huh? Aren't you a weak one./You don't look all that useful to me.

028
Shades: So goodbye!
Gal: Aaaaaaaaaah!
Shades: Shhhhhhhh! I'll show you a magic trick. Care to watch?[tn: What? No pencil?]//Look. There was something in there./1. 2. 3!

029
Shades: Your boyfriend ought to be fine. Eh, miss?/HAHAHA.
Gal: Eh./Maa-kun! Maa-kun! Are you alright?!
Boy: Unh.... Nh... Uh? Why am I... Uh? What are you... doing here?
Gal: Uh?//He can't remember all the dates we've been on...? Just what the heck's going...//...Uh?/Where'd he go...?

030
Karino: ........... Who was... that man?//(Oh no.)/Oops... Oh no... I'm... blushing...//Karino Yuuko... would have... liked... him.../I... like 'em more... Like... Yes... Like Kurosaka-kun... It's... easier to... poke fun at... them.//No... I'd do better to... look around./Find out... more about... that man...

031
Karino: That... way...

032
Karino: (That's... where Kurosaka-kun... lives...//Just... what in the world... does he...)

033
Karino: !//(I'm... spotted! What a... pain...)
Shades: Woops!//Are you okay?

034
Shades: Pleased to meet you, miss./How about we go have a drink to this encounter?
Karino: Who... are you.../exactly...?
Narrator: Elsewhere.
Towada: What the hell?!/Smells like vegetables.[/end

035
8th Battle

036
Karino: (He's... strong...!!/I can't... possibly... fight on par... with him!//I need to... look out for an... opening... and run away.)
Shades: You don't want to do that.

037
Shades: Your body is not meant for such things.
Karino: !//When... did you...?!
Shades: I don't want to fight you. I have no intention.../to pick off a beautiful flower like you.[tn: The Japanese word used here involves killing, but is specific to vegetation. It can also translate as "to let dry".]
Karino: ......!!

038
Shades: Sorry for the wait.//How about some red wine?

039
Karino: I have... no idea. I never... drank alcohol... before.*cheerful*
Shades: I see! 'Tis your first time, then! I'll try my hardest to be a proper host!//Cheese and small plums!/They fit unexpectedly well with the wine!
Karino: ..........
Shades: It isn't poisoned, you know.♥ Come on, have a sip.♥

040
Karino: ! It's... good...
Shades: Yes it is! I'm glad you like it.
Karino: ........//I... I didn't come here... in order to... drink... alcohol./You have... something... to tell me... yes?
Shades: ...Well, yeah. Let's get to business./First, I wanna ask you this...

041
Shades: Why did you chose to land on this specific region of the planet?/I'd like to know.
Karino: Uh...?
Shades: Our brethren descended upon this planet in times long past./Their displays of power became the stuff of various mythologies and legends everywhere.//But recently... I've gathered something strange from the statistics/They used to show up at places far between in the past.

042
Shades: I don't know what their individual goals are, but they've been congregating towards this area./Too much of them for it to be a coincidence. No sense of territory, nothing.
Karino: They're gathering... because... someone wishes it... so.../I'd more... or less come... to the same... conclusion, I did...
Shades: I see./Perhaps they've been manipulated while they were unconscious./You, especially. You were pretty much a "speechless eater" until you obtained your body, right?

043
Shades: But months passed, and then years, and you evolved to the point of elaborate thought./A plant upon which magnificent flowers blossom.//Such is your true identity, isn't it?

044
Karino: Hyaaaa!/~~~
Shades: ..........
Karino: Wh Who... who are... you?
Shades: Me? My true self is nothing to write home about.//I can be a worthy ally, if you so desire.../For now, I'm just a lowly, former Observer.

045
Shades: There, there, don't panic. The key word here is "former". I have no intention to harm you./Have your drink and take it easy.
Karino: (This man... is driving Ryuuko... crazy...)/...So. Mister Former Observer... What do you... have to say... next?
Shades: ...Yes. Let's get back to business./The real problem is whoever's been assembling us in this place. I'm investigating the reason why they'd do that.

046
Karino: Have you... reached... a conclusion?
Shades: Not one I'm particularly fond of./Did you know there was an incantation like that?//To pull off the spell, you prepare a box/and you put various kinds of poisonous critters inside.//Bury it underground for a little while and when you retrieve it//the poisonous beasts will have devoured one another... And the last one standing will be possessed of powerful venom.

047
Shades: The caster may then use that to perform his curse./Replace the poisonous animals with ourselves, and it all becomes clear.//The power to absorb a consumed opponent's abilities and add them to our own comes standard for all of us./Just like a poisonous beast's venom grows even more potent with every such animal it devours.//...Whoever these people are, they're planning to devour us all in order to become even more powerful./Just like the critters inside the box.

048
Karino: These... people.../You mean... there are... several of them?
Shades: Yep.//This is just a step, not their goal proper./But the way it's all being carried out suggests an organization is at work.
Karino: Certainly... the Observers... aren't going to... let that slide...?
Shades: ........../They're doing something alright.

049
Shades: They're covering up./That's what they do.
Karino: !
Shades: You'll find corrupt people everywhere./No surprise here.

050
Shades: Organizations rotten from within are fairly commonplace. And their goal is.../a coup d'etat, in order to seize effective power back on our homeworld.//And the results of my investigations so far.../is that our being gathered here is part of a plan to that end.
Karino: What... proof do you have...?
Shades: ...Nothing I can actually submit yet./Even if it's indeed accurate, it's not going to make much of a difference. That's about it.

051
Shades: It just so happens that I don't like them./So they're going down.//I just wanna live a peaceful life./The same goes for you, right?
Karino: ... And... that's why... you want me... to fight for... you?
Shades: I'd like you to work with me./I need your strength.

052
Karino: Wai.../Wait... a... minute...//?!//(Crap... I'm having trouble... moving... freely.../Must be... the alcohol...)

053
Shades: What will it be...?/Are you with me or not?
Karino: What if... I... refuse...?/Will you... devour...me?
Shades: That depends on you.

054
Karino: (What... should I... do?//Can I... really... trust him...?//I don't have... enough ground... to base a decision upon... yet.)
Shades: ...What's your answer?/I suggest you make up your mind, quickly.
Karino: !

055
Karino: (...N... No...)/Ah.../Ah.../(I don't... want to... die.)
Shades: ........
Karino: (I don't... want that.../No!)

056
Karino: !//Mhhhhhhh?!!/Mmnnuuuuuh?!

057
Karino: Wha... What the?!/What... are you...
Shades: What do you mean, "what"? I thought if you wouldn't come out and say yes, I might as well try to gain your acceptance with a more personal approach.
Karino: (Wai... wait up./What the heck.)/Uh... Uuuuh?
Shades: ...Hey, come on. You employ sexual reproduction too, right? Just wondering if it wasn't about time for pollination.
Karino: (Pollination...)//(Stamen meets Pistil)//GULP

058
*WHAM*
Shades: Ow Ooow... oooouch.//As absurdly strong as hellfire.........../(Oww...)//Guess she's completely new at this./This is gonna take some careful teaching.*smack/Go awaaay*
Shades: "Karino Yuuko"-chan.

059
Shades: ...And sooner or later.../She'll get to understand what I mean...
Karino: Haah/Hah/Haah/Haah//Haah/Haah.

060
Karino(the bubble at the bottom right first): Haah/Haa.../Oh... no... I drank... too much.../Now running... makes me... sick... I'm... gonna... throw up...*hah*
Karino: ........ This is... Kurosaka-kun's...
Ishtar: Give up already.*stare*
Gengo: Not happening!*stare*

061
Ishtar: I'm hungry. And I get riled up when I'm hungry. So let me have a bite while I'm still feeling nice./Failing that, I might get carried away AND OFF YOU.*Ooooooooooooooh*
Gengo: Da Heeeell!!//What about me? It hurts, you know!!/Just give me a break, BCG-Girl![tn: BCG, like the vaccine.]
Ishtar: Then force is the only solution!!/Prepare yourself!!

062
Ishtar: Aren't you a crafty one...!!
Gengo: Clam it! That really hurst like hell!!
Gengo&Ishtar: ?!

063
Gengo: Te... Teacher? >Is there a problem?<
Karino: Can... I... borrow... your... toilets...?
Gengo: Uh... There. On the right from this door...//(Smells like booze...)*BWAAAAAAAARF*
*BWAAAAAAARF*
Gengo: Oh.

064
*BWWWAAAAAARF* *AAAAAAAAAAAAARGH*
Secretary: This is a report from the Personnel Department.

065
Secretary: About our business partnership, things are proceeding favorably./There's a little point of contention regarding balance issues, but nothing particularly noteworthy for the moment, as far as trouble goes./Now, then. Concerning that thing you're worrying about.//The parasite that had entered the girl named Akagi Maya has been eliminated, it seems.//...I believe a reasonably skilled Observer has come along.
Boss: I see.

066
Boss: So I take it things are starting to move according to plan.../One step at a time.
Secretary: Yes sir.
Boss: The time has come at last for our prodigal son to become a useful pawn of mine./Hu... Huhuhu...[/end

9th Battle

068
Karino: Mh...
Ishtar: Zzzzzz/Zzzzz
Gengo: (...Two blessings at once, eh? I get to wake up surrounded by beautiful girls...[tn: "A flower in each hand" is an expression that translates as "two blessings at once", but also means "being flanked by beautiful women". Making Gengo's following sentence rather redundant in the original text.]/This ought to be pure bliss...)

069
Gengo: (But actually I feel more like a rabbit sleeping with a couple of lions...)*sob sob* *So scary*
Ishtar: Uuh...mnhh...
*rises abruptly*
Gengo: !
*sluggish*
Gengo: !
Karino: ............
Ishtar: !

070
*UGH...*
Gengo: ?Ugh?//Te... Teacher. Are you okay? Do you remember what happened last night?
Karino: Uuuuurgh
Gengo: (No vomiting here, please)
Karino: I'b... veeling... zsickg//It's okay.../I can... remember.//Sorry... I even... had... to borrow... your clothes./So I cooked... this... to say... thanks*hot food*
Gengo: Nah, no problem. More importantly, are you alright? What was the alcohol thing about...?
Karino: Never... mind... that. Go ahead... Help yourself... while it's still... hot...
Gengo: Yes ma'am!/I'll take great care to do your meal justice!

071
Gengo: Oh! That's good!! You're a great cook, teacher.
Karino: I'm glad... you... like it...
Ishtar: .........
Karino: What about... the Observer...? She doesn't know... about food... or the like...?
Gengo: ...No, probably not.
Karino: For someone... who wishes... to learn... you seem... to lack... motivation.../If you don't... feel inclined... to handle them like... cattle... You ought to... pay more attention... to their needs...
Ishtar: ...What...?!

072
Karino: Ever... since... I came here... I've learned... how to cook... What do these... life forms... eat... How they... eat it... It's part of... their identity.../I've learned... about cooking... to get to know... Karino Yuuko... To get to know... "myself".[tn: I should have mentioned this earlier, but the name "Yuuko" could be read as "kindly woman", which explains a lot.]//So as far as... fitting in... on this planet goes... we "parasites"... as you call us... do better.../And by a... large... margin, too. Don't you... think?
Ishtar: Pah........!

073
Gengo: (There's no morning like one starting with an explosive situation...)/Well, for now, let's chow down.)
Karino: Kurosaka...-kun.
Gengo: Ye-YEEEEEES?
Karino: When you're... done eating... go to... school. I told them... I wouldn't be... coming to work... today./I need...//to have... a little conversation.../with... that one...

074
Ishtar: Conversation?
Karino: You haven't.../noticed... anything... have you...?
Ishtar: ........!/What are you talking about!!
Gengo: !

075
Gengo: Guess I'd do better to cut through the park. Be faster that way.//I'm freaking out...//That girl and my teacher face to face. Things like that shouldn't happen. When I'm back, my apartment will be vaporized.//...But uh... Man, the park's really quiet today./Like there's not a single soul around. Weird./This is unusual.

076
Shades: It's not unusual at all. Impossible would be more like it.
Gengo: !
Shades: Strange, don't you think? Nobody around, at this time of day!
Gengo: .......Who are you...?/(A jogger?)/What do you mean, about no one being around...
Shades: Well

077
Shades: "Devoured". What do you think of that?
Gengo: !//The hell are you...?!
Shades: Nice face, there./Looks appetizing.

078
Gengo: You.../asshole...!!
Shades: Uuh...?!

079
Shades: Too bad!
Gengo: So... HOW ABOUT THIS!

080
Shades: Uuumm... You still got a long way to go.
Gengo: (Damn it...! I... I don't wanna be someone else's lunch!!

081
Shades: Oh?

082
Gengo: (What am I doing...?/My body's acting on its own...!//It's gotta be Mutsume/he's the one directing my movements...!!)
Shades: Fog!

083
Shades: Trying to hinder my field of vision, are we?//But that's not nearly enou... !//Crap!/That's gotta be the oldest one in the book!

084
Shades: Create a cloud for better conductivity... What a showy move... I'm not quite sure if he's powerful or just a weakling./And... that smell... could he possibly...//This is gonna sound awkward, but.../are you a human being?
Gengo: Uh.//OF COURSE I AAAAAAAAM*buzzzz**baaaawl*
Gengo: NO MATTER HOW YOU LOOK AT IT, I'M HUMAAAAAAAAAAN

085
Shades: Wo... Wow. I'm mega-sorry! My mistake!
Gengo: Do-do-do do you think you can settle this with a simple apology, Mister Error-Prone?![tn: The original text says "kanchi-guy", which is a pun on "kanchigai" (mistake) and the English word guy".]//Also, you said you "ate" those people!!
Shades: Oooh, wait! I haven't hurt anybody./You merely fell for my little trick. Take a look that way.//I bent space a little, in order to attract the "not-quite-human, is all./My real prey is more along he lines of guys like that one.

086
Man: Ah... Hem... For some reason I can't seem to find my way out of this park...
Shades: Yeah, I guess so.//That's because/I've been waiting for you.
Man: Uh?
Shades: There's the smell of a young woman about you. Is that your wife? But that's where it gets odd./How come on top of her hair and her skin I can smell her blood and her bones too?

087
Man: Wha... What kind of nonsense is that...? Who are you exactly...?
Shades: You ate somebody yesterday./Why did you do that?//Taking some of her life energy would have been enough./So why go all the way?
Gengo: ........
Man: ......... Shall let you know, then?

088
Man: The answer's a simple one. It's like the taste of a Forbidden Fruit./Simply delicious.
Shades: Hey boy. Watch closely.
Gengo: !
Shades: There's a charade playing out in this town./Pay close attention!

089
Man: Woo-HEEHEEHEEHEEHEEHEEheeheehee/And you think you can kill me with that thing?!
Gengo: Gulp. What's that?
Shades: If that's what you think, you won't mind trying it out.//Though must warn you: we don't take care of customer complaints.

090
Man: ! Gh... ARGH?!//WARGH
Shades: You thought I'd be using ordinary bullets?
Man: Bworgh... Garl... Agh...
Shades: See, I'm not too fond of showy confrontations.
Man: Auugh... Ugh.../I can't... breathe... Uuuungh. Aaaaaaaah.

091
*fshhhhhh*
Shades: Maaaan. Nothing left but his clothes. Now that's crazy./So. Where is it?
Card: KIZAKI Corporation./Nakayama Koutarou.
Shades : "Kizaki Corporation" it is, then. I've heard about them a lot, lately.../(I'll be taking that purse.♪/Looting, highwayman-style.♫)/That calls for an investigation.
Gengo: Hey... Wait a minute!
Shades: Mh? What is it?/(Do you want the purse?)
Gengo: (No, thank you!!)/Don't "what is it" me! The hell! Just who in the world are you...?!

092
Shades: Easy, there. Never mind my identity./More importantly, you're a student, right? Do you know about "Karino Yuuko-chan"? She's a teacher.
Gengo: (UUUH?)/Yuuko...-CHAN?"
Shades: I could some of her smell about you./(Could you be a rival?)
Gengo: (Ryuuko-chan, he said...)[tn: In Japan, you don't call people by their first name until you get to be really intimate. Even people who are dating won't do that right away. The "chan" suffix makes it sound even more intrusive, which explains Gengo's reaction.]
Shades: Don't tell me you guys are all like lovey-dovey.
Gengo: ...A snowball's chance in Hell. That ain't happening... >She's too scary for that<
Shades: (Aaaaah./What a relief!)
Gengo: (He's an acquaintance of Karino-sensei's? Maybe...
Shades: Oh really?! I think we're gonna be good friends, you and I!!
Gengo: !!

093
Shades: Feel free to address me as "Big bro"!![tn: In Japan, depending on how much older they are, you may address a complete stranger as "(big) brother", "(big) sister", "auntie", grandpa" and the like as a mark of respect. "Aniki", translated here as "big bro" would qualify as casual, but respectful.]
Gengo: Le-Let goooooo! I don't SWING THAT WAY, you hear me!
Karino: When you... cook... You need to... respect... the proportions... carefully... if you... want your meal.. to be... edible.
Ishtar: Uh-huh.

094
Karino: If you... want to absorb... Kurosaka-kun's... life energy... you should... take care of him... properly... don't you think?//I am... his teacher.../And as such... I'm concerned about... his well-being... Because he's... one of... my students... and under my... protection.//You should... get to know... more... about them.../Stop... looking at them... through a tainted... glass... Get to... understand them... Try to fit... in...

095
Karino: And looking... upon those... very things... with a prejudiced eye.../Is what has... allowed you... to brand us as... parasites...
Ishtar: ......I
Karino: Think... about it.../Think about... what you... wanna do... You'll get to... reach a... conclusion... eventually...
Ishtar: Eh?

096
Karino: ...Until... then... I propose a... little truce......../Let's... shake hands.......
Ishtar: Got it.
Towada: Morning, Akagi-chan.

097
Akagi: Ah. Good morning!
Towada: You've braided your hair, today? It looks good on you!
*blush*
Akagi: You think? Thank God. It's been so hot, these days...
Towada: ? What's going on? People seem to be crowding together.
Akagi: True!*chatter*
Gals: This a campaign for our new article!/An eau-de-cologne that doubles as deodorant!

098
Towada: Humm. Shall we get ourselves some?//Yeah, let's do that! It's free, after all!/(Can I have some, please?)
Gals: Yes. Go ahead.
Towada: Pretty color... Smells nice, too./Who made that?//"KI...ZA...KI". Kizaki Corporation...[tn: She's reading Western characters here, not Kanji. Hence the hesitation.]
Akagi: Uh-huh...[/end

10th Battle

100
Bald: Yo!//You look a bit down, Gen-chan. Something wrong?
Gengo: ...Ki... Kinda... It's only morning, and things are already going south...
Towada: Morning! You awake?!
Gengo: Ah. Morning.

101
Towada: So early in the morning and you're already down! Spirits up, young one!
Akagi: Ah yeah. You should try this, why don't you? They were distributing those cologne samples this morning. It smells good, so it might improve your mood as well?
Gengo: Cologne, eh... Thanks but no thanks. I appreciate the gesture, though.
Teacher: Alright, guys. Sit down! For the first class, Japanese it is. You're on your own.
Class: Uuuuuuuh?!
Teacher: I understand Karino-sensei is feeling sick./Hey there! Come on, sit down!!

102
Baddie: Hello... Yes.//Yes. We're about to get started./It's alright. Of course a kekkai has been cast.[tn: Kekkai=Mystical barrier.]//Very well.//A "kekkai"... is it? A piece of wisdom from the Relics, eh.

103
Baddie: Well, now./To the Relics' "glorious sense of imagination".//Cheers!

104
Board: Self-Study.
Gengo: !//(What's... going on? It's not like... something's actually happening.//Something doesn't feel right.........)

105
Gengo: (!/What's with that smell?!)//Ah......//(I.../I got a feeling something mighty bad is about to happen...!!)

Girl: Ah... AAAAAAAAAAAAAAH

107
Girl: AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH
Akagi: Hic!
Gengo: !

108
Akagi: Wha... What's this? What's all this?!!
Gengo: (Akagi and Towada. They're the only one still normal around?!)/What's going on?!
Akagi: Gu... Guys. What's happening... to you?!
Towada: Ah... Aaah...
Gengo: Hey!//Akagi! Towada!//We're running away! Come!!

109
Towada: Kurosaka! What's this all about?!!
Gengo: Your guess is as good as mine!!/For now, we get the hell outta here!!
Akagi: Wha... what can we do about everyone else?!!/At this rate...//!

110
Akagi: AAAAAAAAAAAAAH
Gengo: Akagi!
Towada: Akagi-chan!
Akagi: ~~~Hh!

111
Akagi: Le- Let me goooooo!

114
Towada: A... Aka... Akagi-san?![tn: The shift from "chan" to "san" indicates a drop in familiarity. Towada isn't quite sure the person she's talking to is still the Akagi she knows.]
Akagi: Aaaaaaah. What are these things?!
Gengo: Hey! Are you still in there? Are you still yourself?!
Akagi: I... I'm still myself alright. But I don't want these!!
Towada: First things first, guys. Get the hell out of this classroom!
Gengo: She's right. We'll talk later! For now, let's go!/(C'mon. While everyone's still busy freakin' out.)
Akagi: (No way)
Towada: Yi... Yikes!
Akagi: Uh?

115
Towada: The... the monsters in here aren't the only ones./The folks in the other classrooms have been affected too............!
Gengo: ... I don't like the idea one bit... but we're gonna have to... kick their butts...
Bald: Ku... Kurosaka........
Gengo: !
Bald: A... are you... alright? There's... something weird going on.../I'm... hurting... like hell...

116
Gengo: Da.../God... damn it...
Towada: Why did... everyone become like this in the first place...?
Shades: Allow me to explain.~~~♪//It's all about the nose, actually. The sense of smell./And there aren't many ways to deal with this.

117
Shades: Only one!
Bald: Ugh...
Akagi: !
Towada: W...! What?!
Shades: Fear not, milady./No real harm has befallen that monster.

118
Shades: I came here in the hopes of meeting my precious little Yuuko-chan. But judging by the situation... is she alright?
Gengo: Uh... Yeah.//Anyway... Thanks... Eeeer/... ~~Big bro.
Shades: Hah hah ha. "Big bro"'s got such a nice ring to it!!/HAHAHA
Gengo: Let me gooooo./You're crazy, man! You've got to be!!

119
Towada: Kurosaka... You never cared to tell me you were into THAT. Who's the guy?
Gengo: Some weirdo I met this morning in the park!!
Shades: Hah hah ha. A good day to you, pretty ladies.//...You've been able to maintain your sense of self in such a situation.(You're really pretty girls.)/Am I to understand you are "resistant" somehow?
Akagi: ?
Towada: ?
Shades: Oh, well.//If you wanna do something about the situation here, you need to attack those who have turned into monsters physically. Somewhere other than the head, though, cuz the brain won't grow back./The shock should make them turn back, like it did the other guy. Lightning will burn everything including the actual bodies though, so you should refrain from using that.//Well. That's about it. You can figure out the rest on your own./I'll be taking my leave.

120
Gengo: Wha... Aren't you going to help out?!
*plain and clear, bitch*
Shades: 'Course not! I was here to see Yuuko-chan! I got better things to do than serving as a crutch for you guys!/But if I must, let me tell you something.//Whoever's started this mess gotta be somewhere around here./Find them and knock their teeth in. That should allow everyone to return to normal, including the girl with the glasses.
Gengo: Ho... How do we go about it?!
Shades: You figure that out on your own. How you gonna use your power? You get to try it out! Adieeeeeuuu!![tn: "Adieu" is French for "farewell".]

121
Gengo: Hey. Wait the hell up! Adieu, my ass!!/Ah. Idiot. This is fragile. He's falling off now.//No... No pondering to be done there.../We're completely surrounded...!

122
Akagi: Wha... What can we do, Kurosaka-kun...?!
Gengo: What... we can do.......
Towada: Akagi-chan! Settle down!/Kurosaka! You can fight 'em, right? The way you did before!
Gengo: I... I guess so...
Towada: ...I hate to admit it, but I won't be of much use to you in a fight...//Please. You've got to save everyone!
Gengo: ...Yeah. Of course I do!

123
Gengo: Akagi and I will open the way!/You stick close to us, Towada!
Akagi: Me... I can't do that...
Towada: You'll be fine! Just move those arms of yours around, you should manage something!/We need to make it outside, so let's get to the stairs...
Gengo: Let's go!

124
Gengo: Gh
Akagi: Aaaaaaaah

125
Gengo: I see 'em! Over there!/Hold steady!!

127
Gengo: ...To...//Towadaaa!!

128
Gengo: Towada! Towada!!
Akagi: Sayo-chan, wake up!!
Gengo: Damn it. Damn it!!
Akagi: Please!! Wake up!
Flashback!Karino: Towada... Sayoko..../is your... reliquary...

129
Flashack!Karino: Do so... and...//I won't... eliminate... you!!
Gengo: Towada!!
Akagi: Thank goodness... You okay?!
Towada: ... Dang...

130
Towada: Never mind that teacher woman or the guy from earlier.../Can I find anyone on this planet who ain't some damn monster?!!
Gengo: He... Hey?/Towada...?[/end

131
11th Battle

132
Gengo: To... Towada...?!
Towada: .......... No need to freak out, pal.

133
Towada: The reason the gal here was able to remain herself is because I was in there./The bespectacled chick's been a host at some point I take it...?//She's still sane, but her body's turned just like it did for the other folks.
Gengo: Wa... Wait a minute! Tha... That means you're a para...
Towada: What's so surprising? Same goes for you, doesn't it?
Gengo: Don't be silly!! I'm human!
Towada: Hummm... Okay, never mind. Gotta do something about this mess.

134
Towada&Gengo: !
Akagi: Sta... stay awayaaay!!

135
Towada: Quit whining, will ya!! This is reality. Deal!/You don't wanna die, do you!//Go!
Gengo: !

136
Towada: S' okay. Its real body is still unharmed. I just flung some ice at it.
Gengo: ...A... Awesome...
Towada: Nothing to write home about. You can do a lot better than that...
Gengo: ...Uh?
Towada: Guys like you tend to pack a lot of punch. Just let your "power" take care of things./Just do it. I think the rest will come naturally.
Gengo: ...My.../"power"...?

137
Towada: Here they come!
Gengo: (Power?//What the heck...//does he mean by that...?)

138
Gengo: ! Akagi./Towa...//(Power!)[tn: Uuuuunlmiteeed!! POOOOOOWEEEEEER!!]

139
Towada: Ooowwwwwww... Hey! You okay, Glasses-chick?!!
Akagi: Duuuh./Ye... Yeaaaaah...
Gengo: Step out of the way, girls. Let me handle this.
Towada: What?//!

142
Akagi: ...Awesome...
Towada: ...Damn./(...The man's a real freak in his own right...)//Hey?
Gengo: Wha... What was that? Man, I'm washed out.../Oowww
Akagi: You okay?
Towada: So uncool. That said... I'd bet my right arm this is all because of that smell. We should track it down to its source.
Gengo: Well...//The rooftop, probably. That's what my gut tells me.

143
Akagi: The weather's... so nice.//...The school hardly looks any different from usual when you look at it from here...
Gengo: ...Indeed. Right you are...
Baddie: Uh. How did human beings make it here...?/Well no...

144
Baddie: You guys aren't human... Are you?
Gengo: We're human, we are. So what?!/Are you responsible for this massive clusterfuck?!
Baddie: Human... Are we, now...?/Then, what do you call "human"?
Gengo: ...Huh?
Baddie: How do you define the word? Is human flesh really enough to qualify as a human being?

145
Baddie: Or do "heart" and "soul" a human make?[tn: The odd sentence construction is deliberate.]/What do you think?
Gengo: Wh... what do you... mea...
Akagi: Ha... have you ever heard about the word "inhuman"?/Wearing the skin of Man and commiting atrocities certainly doesn't make you human! Your "soul". That's what really counts!!
Baddie: What a nice answer. Lovely. Just lovely.

146
Gengo: Akagi! Towada! Step back!
Baddie: Oh-ho.../So you can estimate power discrepancies. Interesting.//Then I shall return the favor./And fight to the fullest extent of my "capacity".

147
Gengo: ...Hah...?!/Ah...?
Baddie: Ever heard about ultrasonic waves?/You can destroy even stone with them. This is but a portion of it. But powerful all the same.
Gengo: Uh......../Ah....?

148
Gengo: !!
Baddie: I'm going to disassemble you. One cell at a time.
Akagi: Kurosaka-kun!
Baddie: As for the girls.../I'll be taking them home. They shall prove extremely "useful".
Gengo: (Th... This is really bad!/My body... My body!!)

149
Gengo: (No! I don't wanna die!! I don't wanna die!!/I don't wanna die!!//I don't wanna die!!//No!//No!//I...)

150
Gengo: (I don't!)

151
Gengo: ...Uh.../Ah...//Ah... Ah... Aaah...//I... I killed him...
Shades: Splendid!! Simply outstanding!

152
Shades: Now the other students can go back to normal too. All thanks to you.
Gengo: You.. You were watching...?
Shades: HAHAHA/You wouldn't have been of much use to me if you'd died over such a picayune incident.//Ah yeah. The girls' memories are gone. The other pupils shouldn't remember much of what happened today either.
Gengo: .........Kh...!

153
Shades: Come on, don't be mad. I'm gonna tell you about something really important./HAHAHA
Gengo: Something important...?
Shades: That's right.//It's about what the dudes from earlier have been trying to do.
Gengo: You... You know about them?
Shades: I do.♪/And that's why

154
Shades: I'll ask you to become mine, if you please.
Gengo: Wow.//SO... SORRY BUT I DON'T SWING THAT WAY./Hiiiiiic
Shades: (Hey there. Where d'you think you're going?)/Do you think now is the right time for that kind of joke?//I want you to become an ally. You will abide by my orders.
Gengo: Hell no!/Not a chance!!

155
Shades: That was fast. Sign now, and you get half a year's worth of soap?
Gengo: No means no!! Don't ask me why, but I don't like your methods!!
Shades: Do you think you can afford to be picky?
Gengo: Hell yeah!! I don't feel like obeying a guy I can't even trust!!
Shades: I see...
Gengo: !
Shades: Very well, then./I shall submit you through strength of arms.

156
Gengo: !//(Wha... What's going on?!//Thi... this guy... he's bad news!!/Scares the hell outta me!)
Shades: I forgot to tell you. Once I eliminate you./I intend to let your cute little classmates here follow you in death.

157
Gengo: Asshole... You dirty coward!
Shades: HAHAHA/I'll do just about anything to fulfill my goals. Anything.//(Nevertheless...//I'm gonna have trouble persuading a guy like him with my ordinary methods.../I don't really intend to kill anyone, but... Let's tease him a little.)//Here we go!

158
Gengo: Gh...
Shades: Hey there. Have you forgotten? You already tried lightning this morning. That didn't work out so well, now, did it?//Learn your lesson, young man. By the way, these are the branches I picked earlier./Touch them and die.

159
Shades: Come on, boy./Let's get cracking.
Karino: Will... you... stop that?!

160
Karino: I came... because of... the lightning!!/What... is... the meaning of... this?!!
Gengo: Te... Teacher...
Shades: YUUKO-CHAN
Karino: Akagi...-san... Towada...-san.../Even Kurosaka-kun... are all... beaten up...//You did that... didn't you... You... raised your hand... against... my students.../You... made a mess... out of this... school!
Gengo: ........
Shades: Cripes!!

161
Gengo: We're... saved...?
Karino: Kurosaka...-kun!
Shades: Boooo-hoooo.
Karino: Go... God in... Heaven...!!//If I'd... known... it would... come to this... I wouldn't have... taken the day... off...!/I'm... sorry.......
Gengo: Oh... This is an unexpected perk...
Karino: So... I hope... you're ready... to throw down... Mister Root of... All Evil...
Shades: I... It's not what it looks like!! Yuuko-chan!!

162
Karino: Is that... so?
Shades: Boooooooh. Ayayayayae.
Gengo: (Should I accuse him? Cuz that sounds like a very tempting idea right now...)/Ye... yeah. Mostly...
Karino: I'm gonna need... an explanation... What... happened... here?
Shades: I'll explain. I'll explain. Everything you wanna hear!!//...But before we get there...
Karino: !
Shades: Looks like our real "guest" has arrived.[/end

163
12th Battle

164
Someone: The real... guest?
Tux: Humph. A real gathering of outsiders. What impudence.

165
Gengo: Outsiders...?! What's wrong with that one? Smartass.
Tux: Not "smartass". "Smart".//But I have to admit, I'm impressed to see so many survivors./Ishtar... has really been neglecting her duties.//Whatever area you go to, you need to make sure to clean up the place.
Karino: You're... another... Observer?/And... you seem to have... a lot of trouble... holding your tongue.
Tux: I think there's a little mistake, here.

166
Tux: You are nothing, bitch. You have no rights. Not even the right to live!//I will remedy to that by blowing you to pieces/and make sure not a single trace remains!

167
Ishtar: That's enough.

168
Tux: You finally show yourself, Ishtar, and what do you do? You oppose your superiors.
Ishtar: This place is under my jurisdiction... Am I right?!
Tux: Do you think that matters? The important thing here/is that you're acting against your betters.
Tux: Insubordination is severely punished, you know?//You aren't actually dealing with those you ought to eliminate.
Gengo&Ishtar: ...Ah...

169
Tux: You don't have the right to tell me anything at all./Get your hands off me.//Do it, and I will show consideration. There's also what happened to your sister, after all.//Good girl.

170
Tux: Now... where were we...?//Well, I intended to raze this building either way, so.../You're going down.
Karino: Hh... Wha!//Oh no... you don't...!!
Gengo: Teacher!!

172
Karino: Aaaah...!/What... are you... doing?

173
Karino: ..........Hh...!!
Shades: Calm down, Yuuko-chan. You need to know how the enemy acts./...or things could get dangerous.//You're distorting space with sudden bursts of pressure./Not like it's all that difficult. However

174
Shades: You have gone too far.
Tux: Humph. Hey. Ishtar.//You take care of it.
Ishtar: Wha...//Wai... wait!! Never mind them. What about the human beings inside this buildings?/They are... We're supposed to be protecting them!!
Tux: What nonsense.

175
Tux: You don't feel affection for cattle, do you?/Relics are but one element among many to ensure our own survival.//And our goal is a noble, superior one.//One of the steps to that end necessitates the dispatching of the kine who populate this region./Now listen. This is an order.//Kill them!

176
Ishtar: ...If it's...//an order...

177
Ishtar: Ack...!

178
Ishtar: Uugh... Hc...
Tux: What a fool you are. I'm your superior for a reason. I am more powerful than you.
Ishtar: Hell...
*clap clap clap*
Shades: Myyyy. This is getting better and better.
Karino: E... enough already... Let me... go...
Shades: But still kinda lame!

179
Tux: ...What?
Shades: If that's all you've got, you couldn't even defeat the young man, here.
Gengo: DUH?!
Karino: A... are you trying... to start... something?!
Gengo: YOU'VE DONE NOTHING BUT PLAYING ME FOR A FOOL
Shades: He's weaker that you.♪ Give it a try!!/Yuuko-chan, you take care of Glasses-girl and her friend.♥//This is a challenge young boy. No more no less./Try not to die.

180
Tux: What a load of bunk... Me!!/You dare call me lame?!//Do you really think a head of cattle/has a hope to win against me?

181
Shades: Oh. He's in serious mode, now./(The joke is falling flat♪)
Karino: Wha...!//The... There's gotta be... something wrong... with you...!!
Shades: He'll be fine.//He's not gonna lose./Not that one.
Tux: Humph. Know your place./Kine!
Gengo: Hell...

182
Tux: Die!
Gengo: ?!
Six: (Create something out of nothing.)

183
Six: This system allows such a power to exist. I may like it or I may be afraid, but it's there.
Sister: ...Nervous?
Six: I wouldn't be surprised if they decided to put that to military use.
Sister: ...I see.

184
Sister: But you should do fine.
Six: And Observers like yourself

185
Six: will probably use it to do the right thing.
Gengo: ?!

186
Gengo: ...Ah.
Tux: Die!!//That won't do you any good.

187
Tux: Wha?//...What the...//hell...?

188
Shades: You alright?
Gengo: Yeah... I expanded the area of counterpoising power.
Shades: ...What?
Gengo: Uh? What.../What am I talking about...?
Shades: Interesting./You are really fascinating, my boy.
Tux: Uh... Uuuh.

189
Tux: !
Ishtar: A... Ah.......!/Ju...//Ju... Just what it the meaning of this?!!
Shades: Do you wish to know?
Ishtar: Tell me! Please!!
Shades: ...Thing is, I can't trust you just yet.

190
Ishtar: Bu... But... I can't....!!
Shades: That's the only way//Or you're hardly any different from the others.
Gengo: Wha... What the heck...?
Shades: You go home.
Gengo: Uh?
Shades: Come on.//I'll clean up here./You just go.[/end

192
DESTROYING THE EARTH.

Book: High school literature.
Gengo: Teacheeeer.
Karino: Uh... What... is it?
Gengo: Today's weeding day for me the the other students in my year. Can I have the key to the janitor's closet?/(Must be a scythe or a fork in there.)
Karino: Well.../Weeding... is it...?
Towada: ...Uh. What? Karino-sensei barricaded herself in the janitor's closet, and she was crying the whole time? ...How come?
Bald: Teacheeeer. Teacheeer. Yoo-hoo!
Door: Janitor's closet.
Karino: Boo-hoo.
Gengo: I think I messed up in my choice of words... >As in, murdering her extended family, I guess...<

Note: *Personality change at work.

Akagi: So cool, Sayo-chan...
