 The hand of insanity draws near to Black*Star---...!!
 What is the "power" you seek?
 You bastard...... So you intend to draw Black*Star into insanity as well...
 "Power"... / That which I seek...
 The "power" I seek---...!?
[Title] Chapter 78: Salvage (Part 7)
 What the hell... such a boring question you're asking / This is why I hate books
 I don't care what "power" is... / I just don't want to lose to anyone, that's all...
 No matter who the opponent is, I'll mow him down / I don't need any boring explanations of what "power" is
 The "power" I want is "power".
 Doesn't matter if my opponent's a god!! / GOBA*
 Hyaha!! / BOSU* / I'll take 'em all out!!
 Hmph... What a simpleton...
 Haven't you heard the expression "Simple is Big"?
 It's "Best"! / DOTSU*
 But it doesn't matter whether it's big or best now / After all, everything will be reduced to a "nothingness" of boundless symmetry
 Huh!? / What...?
 And you call me simple... / Everything reduced to nothingness!? / That ain't so different from me
 Don't lump me together with you!!
* fwoom (x5)
 I have "order"... It's not so crude as your "power"
 If the outcome's the same, the means don't matter
 Wrong!! / I'm not wrong
 Death God Martial Arts "Insane Sin" Stance
 There's no way the "power" to reduce all to nothing is the same as you
 "Symmetry", "Symmetry"... I always thought you were a loudmouth and now it's "Nothingness", "Nothingness"... / But though I think "Symmetry" is alright, I don't like "Nothingness"...
 With the power of "nothingness" you can reduce your enemy to "nothing"... / Don't you feel anything? Is that the emotion of "nothingness" too?
 That's right...
 So you have no feelings about opponents you've overcome / Yeah, I definitely don't like it...
 BABO* / Stop joking around!!
 So then you're saying you're going to erase Liz and Patty as well!!?
 Is that the ultimate "power" you came up with!!!?
 It's the ravings of the ultimate "moron"!!
* blub blub blub
 *cough* / *cough*
 *cough* / *cough*
 So then what is it you want to do once you have your ultimate "power" to lay waste to your opponents in your hands... / Once you have it... what's left to you...?
 Shut up, like I know...? / I'll think about that once I've become the strongest
 But I'll say this one thing... / Right now you're not at a god's level...
 I'm a shinigami / What do I need with a level or whatever shit you're talking...
 Ahh! That's right... right now you're just a regular god...
 What!? What are you trying to say...?
 You can to lower yourself to being just a regular god, and you can also become just another useless person... / That's what was so great about you
[4 inset panels] Well then, kill me!! You're a shinigami, aren't you!!? / DOGON*
 I was joking around and said I wanted you to kill me... / But you punched me the hell out and left me alive...
 I didn't punch you out / I used my heel / That's right... That's the sort of precise guy Kid is
 Lord Shinigami said this... That shinigami govern the "death" and "life" of all living things
 By talking so big about the "nothingness" of symmetry / you're just giving up on balance because it's annoying to manage and saying it's okay to leave it a blank slate
 That's not ultimate, or anything
 Chapter 7: Greed
 Black*Star... We're leaving Kid to you...
 Wait, you!! / We looked down on you because you were girls, but now we're gonna give you everything we've got!
 *huff* / *huff* / Run for it, Patty! If they catch us, they're not gonna let us off easy!
 New York
 Ungh... / Ahh... ahh... / We didn't hear anything about the Brooklyn Devils having back up like this... / Ungh...
 We're saved
 You two are beautiful!! / I'm going to be creating a perfect world, and I'd like you two to become my left and right hands...
 Sis! He says we're beautiful!! / Sh... Shut up... / We're used to hearing that, don't be so happy
 I'm a shinigami / I came from Death City after hearing about your infamy and beauty
 If he's a shinigami, he's gotta have LOTS of money... / A richie-rich like that came here to make use of us!?
 If we go to the shinigami's house, I can get Patty some cute dresses to wear / (handwritten) Sis / I can let her eat delicious things to her heart's content every day / and after a soothing bath, put her to bed in a fluffy futon
 Well, how about it? / Will you come with me? / Sis, say something / Patty!! Cinderella!! We're Cinderellas!
 Come along
 Yeah!! Finally our luck has changed!! Keh!! You shitty brat, I bet you never had a hardship in your whole life... I'm just gonna squeeze you and squeeze you til you're dry...
 I hate the mother who abandoned Patty and me... / But I guess since she was the most beautiful whore in town... I should thank her for bearing two pretty girls...
 What're you doing? Hurry along, now / Yeah / Sorry
 Patty, behave yourself for a while
 Got it
 Shinigami? Whatever... Moron... You spoiled little kid, blessed by birth... / Now it's our turn. Money, power, we'll take hold of it all
 Huh... / Patty's laughing like this too...
 Has she been laughing like this all along......?
 I thought that as long as the two of us were together, we could have fun living our lives... / We didn't need anyone else... We were so angry we wanted to erase everything besides ourselves...
 Mm / The frame which was crooked before now has an unimaginable beauty
 That day, Patty / laughed like she was making up for lost time
 Have we... / been killed by this shinigami?
 This may be the chapter of greed, but who cares... / I don't need money... / All I want is for Kid and Black*Star to come back safe... I don't need anything else
 Liz-chan... are you alright? / Sis...
 Everyone here feels the same... / We're all waiting for those two to come back...
 I... / haven't... thanked him yet...
 I might be using the power of insanity to become the strongest... / But I'm not gonna lose to it / being the strongest but losing everything to insanity is a joke...
 I figured it out... / What I want to do once I get ultimate power in my hands...
 As though I'd listen / to your piddling definitions of "power"
