A CITY FOR HONESTS AND HERETICS #6

tl by molokidan

164)
{Female High School Soldier}

165)
1: In order to survive, we have to abandon "humanity."
2: But unless we later return to "humanity," there will be no point to survival.
3: This zone is under the control of our army.
4: Therefore it is forbidden to move to another zone without permission.
5: Anyone who does something suspicious will be shot without warning.
6: I repeat

168)
1: You really like doing that, First Lieutenant Takigawa.
2: Looking at the sun through your hand.
3(2b): Female high school soldiers' hands are transparent down to the blood vessels, so it looks like glasswork.
4: You mean you were absorbed by its beauty?
5: Nah.
6: I don't really think it's beautiful.
7: Don't take photographs. We're confiscating that film.
8: But the panties...

169)
1: To think I'd come back home on a mission...
2: Who knows, this might be my final farewell...
3: Murakami ran away from the front lines of his squad and destroyed this place, where he was also from.
4: And so we, the other members of her squad, came to clean up his mess.
5(2b): This is horrible, though. I'm sure a lot of the people I know died in this...
6: First Lieutenant Takigawa, look!
7: There's a survivor!
8: The Captain is interrogating her...

170)
1: Mieko...
2: I can't believe it...she's alive?
3: Eh? Your ex-girlfriend?
4: No, just an old friend.
5: She didn't answer her phone, so I was worried.
6: heeeeey!
7: Miekoooo, it's meeeee!

171)
1(2b): Dammit, the helicopter's making too much noise...Miekooooo!
2: Heeeeey!
3: ...Mieko...
4: I had no way of knowing that Mieko's family was killed by her old friend, Murakami...
5: Murakami apparently escaped to the western desert.
6: wow. He probably went through Kouenji and then got on Oume Highway then...

172)
1: His goal is to get to Tokorozawa, Captain.
2: How do you know that?!
3: Don't just say whatever just because you want to!
4: There's a school he used to go to in Tokorozawa.
5: So what?
6: All the places that have been destroyed in this town are places that had some sort of connection with Murakami's upbringing.
7: Where his elementary school was, where his family lived, his apartment, the cheap hotels he brought girls to...
8: He's probably...
9: trying to destroy all the places he has memories of...

173)
1: You're from the same town as him, aren't you?
2: Tch!
3: Yes. I went to high school with the last three survivors...
4: They were people with whom I seriously promised "eternal friendship"...
5: He probably knows his way around this area...want to put him in charge?
6: Yeah.
7: Dammit...now I'm gonna get more work.
8: I was secretly planning to come back home ahead of Murakami and propose to Mieko.
9: Mufufufu
10: Mufu
11: In other words, that "eternal friendship" we all pledged together was total bullshit.
12: First Lieutenant, we're leaving now!

174)
1: That afternoon, we of the Female High School Soldier Squadron took a combat helicopter
2: across the western desert, searching for Tokorozawa.
3: No needless chit-chat, OK?
4: Shut uuuuup!
5: I don't want to walk all the way there.
6: Stop being so selfish!
7: It was an old model, so the air conditioner didn't even work right.
8: Old Female High School Soldier Model Type-B
9: And it looked so stupid.
(small):
the hair looks like an old lady's lol
too much perfume
what the hell is that
skirt is too long
it's scary!
pic by First Lieutenant Takigawa lol
slip-ons?!
10: I have a question, First Lieutenant Takigawa!
11: Why did you stop calling out to that girl earlier?!

175)
1: Because if I reached her, it would show my emotion and nostalgia.
2: Which is a very dangerous thing to do on the battlefield.
3(2b): Unless we become one with these female high school weapons, we will not survive.
4: Yes...we have to unify ourselves...
5: Until the war ends...
6: we cannot revert to "humanity."
7: Keh
8(2b): Murakami...thought the saaame way.
9: I read a letter in his room.
10: He wrote it just before he escaped...I'll forward it in a mail to you.

176)
(the whole joke with the letter is that it's written with lingo and emoticons that are used by high school girls)
letter: Ummmm, so today I was really depressed, and some old guy was like "You're gross, Murakami (>_<) I was like WTF? It hurts...Mika is just being herself...trying to be cute! (lol) eheheh! SOOOO I decided to run away for a little bit. You know, get my thoughts together..I'm a little embarrassed, ahaha. this is so fun. So anyway, I know they're gonna get really mad at me when I return (cut off)
1: This is gross...
2: He's always been a little crazy.
3: He was a pervert who put on mascara in the cockpit, after all...
4: That's not true.
5: He was just trying to become one with the female high school soldier.
6: Eh?
7: No...he may have been trying to become a FHSS himself.

177)
1(2b): And so the "human" Murakami was in the way. He denied his own existence.
2: He went to destroy all the "traces" that he had lived.
3: So that's why he destroyed the town...
4: Hahaha! So he really is a nut!
5: Therefore, if Murakami wants to erase all things connected to him,
6: then we, who've shared the same meals with him for years,
7: should be his targets as well...

178)
no page?

179)
1: This may be a trap.
2: ....eh?
3: He may have just acted like he was going to Tokorozawa to draw us out here...
4: Hie
5: The scout helicopter is back.
6: Dammit, that scared me...
7: Make contact with the helicopter and scout the surroundings.
8: Roger!
9: I'll do a call to the old man for the time being.

180)
1: d
2: Disperse!
3: Disperrrrse!

181)
1: Our radar is being jammed! We can't find out where he is!
2: hyu
3: CQB Mode!
4: Tahara!

182)
1: Don't lose him!
2: What is the general doing? Mow him down!
3: Move!
4: He went behind the building on the right!

183)
1: Ah...
2: Captain Tsunefusa...
3: Behind you, Kurayamaaa!

185)
1: Murakamiiii!

186)
1: Ohhhh
2: grip
3: F...First Lieutenant!
4: H...hurry...
5: Help me...

187)
1: Hiieee...

188)
1: ...Murakami.

189)
1(2b): Are you my old ally? Er, ex-old ally?
2: Like?
3: You deciding whether or not to slap me?
4: Are you like, totally clueless?
5: Like, seriously?
6: Woah, that's like, so funny.
7: Like, hello? Everyone else is dead!
8: Why don't you die already?
9: He's lost his mind...
10: Since I'm an old friend of yours...
11: I'd like to capture you alive...
12: But it's too late now, I can see!
13: We've both changed too much. Things aren't the same as before.
14: You don't even have a scrap of your humanity left.
15: You've been possessed by a Female High School Soldier.
16: That's, like, my line?
17(2b): Y'know? Sorta?

190)
1: What? What? A mail?
2: That's YOU!
3: If you don't put it on manner mode you'll be sent to the detention barracks!
4: Hold on, let me check my messages.

191)
1: Murakamiiiiii
2: Ah
3: woah, like...

193)
1: Why did you let your guard down, Murakami?
2: Being careless on the battlefield can mean your life.

194)
1: The message
2: was from Mieko.
text: How are you? It's been a while since I heard from you. I've decided to accept the proposal you made to me before you went out on your job. I can only pray that you haven't changed your mind.
I love you.
-Mieko
3: ....eternal friendship my ass. That bitch...
4: Dammit...
5: Maybe receiving a message from the woman he thought he killed shook him up too much.
6: Too late.
7: If that's the case, then it means there was still a piece of his humanity left inside him...

195)
1: In any case, one year later,
2: the war ended.
3(2b): After coming home, I told Mieko that Murakami "died in battle." She never heard anything, so I left her in the dark.
4: A little bit later, I married a different woman and left my hometown.
5: If I said that I had no lingering affection for Mieko, that would be a lie.
6: But once you have a child,
7: mysteriously enough, those sort of feelings thin out.

196)
1(2b): Hey, look at my hand! It's transparent right down to the blood vessels.
2: It looks like glasswork...
3: Beautiful, huh?
4: Father.
5: She turns 16 this year. As the days go by, I think she starts to look more and more like me.
