Princess,
*SU———...*

P05
Princess Ame.
What matter have you come to meet for?

P06
It is in concerns of Himeko’s prediction.
Himeko’s...
*PICHO—...*
Ah~~~~~~...
Himeko - 175 ~ 248, Queen of Yamato.

P07
Tomorrow’s afternoon at 4:44 on Edo’s (Present Tokyo) land~~~~~~
The revengeful ghost of a samurai from the Bakumatsu* will appear~~!!! TN : final years of the Edo period when the Tokugawa shogunate ended.
Himeko’s precognition predictive value is of 100%.
Revengeful ghosts bring about disasters on the people,
As such effecting the requiem of souls is the duty that befalls the Princess of the Temple of the Ancient Times.
Dooooon’t
Fuck with me, Zeami!!!
*BOOM*

P08
Since we’ve entered this month, it’s already been the tenth occurrence!!!
No matter how you look at it, too many revengeful ghosts are appearing!!!
*BOOM*
*BOOM*
It is in no way my fault,
Tell this to the revengeful ghosts.
Idiot, you big idiot,
As if they’d listen!!
Zeami - 1363 ~ 1443. Perfected his talent together with his Father Kan’Ami.
What’s with you saying do 「the requiem of souls 」as if it were an easy thing to do!
Anyway, do you even understand how difficult this really is!?
*ZUKA ZUKA*

P09
Stop it, Sarutahiko.
Indeed recently, revengeful ghosts have been extremely numerous but, this isn’t a valid reason to not do anything.
Most of all, people are worried.
Shall we do it?
Being helpful to everyone is after all what brings Ame the most happiness.

P10
It hasn’t been a long time since spirits have been able to come forth in the Temple of the Ancient Times.
This all became possible due to a special and miraculous virtue of this land.
TIPS ① Spirits
Revengeful ghosts bring about disasters on the people, as such their hatred must be quelled, so that the current beneficial circumstances the people have can be kept.
Don’t worry, don’t worry. Ame-sama will dispose of it straight away.
We’d like to be of some help too, but if we were to ever leave here, we wouldn’t be able to maintain our shape.
Sarutahiko,
Because you are her childhood friend, so the duty to protect Ame-sama will be yours alone.
Idiots, of course I’ll protect her.
Though it’s only because if she were not in this city anymore, it’d suck big time!!

P11
*KOKE*
A~~ah.
Aah!!!
*DOBO*
Guhaa!!
He’s so gentle...
Cu~tee ♥︎
Cu~tee ♥
He’s so gentle.
Jeez...
What a boisterous man.
Zeami.
C’mon, let’s get going!!!
*PESHI*
Ye~es
However, it’s just like Sarutahiko said,
Usually, around 2 to 3 revengeful ghosts at most come forth in a span of ten years...
Is it possible that...

P12
Edo (Tokyo).
*DOZAAAAA*
*PIKA*
*ZU GORO GORO GORO*
Uwaaaah!!!
Once again, it’s a guerrilla downpour!!!
The flowers I was bringing my girlfriend as her birthday present are all spoilt now!!
*BISHI BISHI*
Shibou Furao (22)
Huh?
*ZAAAAAA*

P13
*AAAAA*
Uggh...
Now of all times, for such a suspicious person...
*KON KON*
I’ll just ignore and pass right over...
*YURAA*
Eh?
Wait...
Stop...
*SUNUU*

P14
*KA*
I!!
In the Bakumatsu, Satake Kou was the servant of I, Okabe Kikugai!!!

P15
TIPS ② Okabe Kikugai
During the Bakumatsu, killed eighty-one people just so as to test his blade. It seems he liked killing people thrice as much more than food.
The blade is a warrior’s soul,
*LICK*
But, with a new weapon, if I don’t kill at the very least seven people then I just can’t get its true sharpness...
*SUU*
Are...
Are you...
A human?
*WHOOSH*
It must be a lie...
Right!!?

P16
Look ouuuuuut!!!
*BOOM*
*ZAKU*
*SUTA*
*GORO GORO*

P17
Revengeful ghost!!!
We shall be your opponents!!!
*SHURU*
It hurts...
Mr. Revengeful ghost!!
Don’t use violence!!!
I, Ame of the Temple of the Ancient Times!
Order you to stop what you are trying to carry out at once!!!
What?
——Wha?
A kid and a beautiful girl!!!
What are you doing, run away kids!!
This guy is trouble!!
*BA*

P18
*ZASHI*
*BUSHU——*
*PASA*

P19
———You idiot!!!
*GRAB*
*GAKUU*
Aaah...!!!
Sarutahiko, you take care of the revengeful ghost!!!
Before it becomes too late, Ame shall return him from Hell!!
*ZAAAAA*
*STEP*
You don’t even need to say it...

P20
Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha!!!
*SUUU*
*UUU...*
Hey, don’t run on me!!!
Killing in order to test a new sword, how pleasant that is!!!
*PO PO*
I just can’t get enough of it~~~~~~!!!

P21
Still, I observe an inviolable rule when doing this sort of killing,
*SAAA*
*AAA*
That is, not to start fights with troublesome people.
—Dammit!!!
If I were to not want to kill anymore, I shall come once more.
As an revengeful ghost, for me time is infinite.
Heh!
Rather than once more, can’t you appear right away!

P22
The Life (World of Human Beings)
The Boundary
The AfterLife (World of the Spirits)
——People die and then their soul sinks into the Afterlife.

P23
People who died having few lingering affections sink rapidly once they get there...
Usually, one month passes by, then they reach a settlement in the Afterlife by merging into the soup of spirits.

P24
When the foam of this soup of spirits bursts open,
*POMU*
The created splash crosses over the Boundary by flying...
Then lodges itself inside a pregnant woman thus becoming a new soul.
However, the difficulty resides with the people who died while possessing strong lingering affections.
Hm~ph
Their attachment towards life prevents them from letting go of the Boundary and they continuously go against its magnetism.
And thus「revengeful ghosts」are created.
Revengeful ghosts can sometimes unexpectedly make their way through to the Life.

P25
In the Life, revengeful ghosts see their hatred incarnated.
With their paranormal old powers, their very existence brings about disasters on the people.
We not only have to make the requiem of the revengeful ghosts,
But also equally important to what we do... No, even more important,
We have to make the return from Hell of the people that have passed away while getting dragged into our business.
*SU*
I’m going to take a little look at your license,
If I didn’t know your name, even if I were to use the power of language to souls* , I wouldn’t be able determine your soul’s location. TN : Kotodama
...Shibou Furao-sama.

P26
*SU*
*JIWA*
Shibou Furao-sama.
Shibou-sama.
——Is it an angel?
Welcomed back,
You will not be transforming into a revengeful ghost.

P27
*PICHO——N*
Even so you passed away before,
Instead of sinking even deeper, if you’d like I could execute the return from Hell for you right now.
The return from Hell...?
If you welcome this proposition...
*ZUBU*
Then, please grab onto these hands.
*GRAB*

P28
*ZA*
*AAA*

P29
*HYURA—*
*SUUU*
*OPEN*
Wha!!!
*GABA!!*
*GUI*
I returned from Hell!!!

P30
Who...
Who the hell are...
*FAINTS*
Ah!!
*BYUN*
*GRAB*
Ah! You are the br... Boy from before!!
What the hell was that just now?
This revengeful ghost... That looked like a suspicious person, where has he gone off to!?
Also, why did he kill me...
*SU*

P31
*STEP STEP STEP*
H...hey!!
*STEP STEP*
I’m telling you to wait!!!
I was killed by him!
*GRAB*
You are obliged to explain to me what...
*GLARE*
—Ugh!!

P32
Let me tell you one thing,
Why do you think influential people and politicians have long lives in this World?
It’s all due to the blessing of the Return from Hell「POWER」 the Princess of the Temple of Ancient Times has received in her body.
As such, the Princess’ power is the most important for this World.
This World wouldn’t exist if she were not to get involved with easy going people like you!!!
Eeh...!?
At any rate, you’re lucky your life was Returned from Hell. You should be satisfied with that only.
B...but,
Err... Even if she is unconscious will she really alright?

P33
There is no way she’d be fine!!!
*SHOCK*
When she uses her POWER Return from Hell,
Ame’s soul gets scraped off a little and her body ages,
Yet, despite her knowing all of that, she still saved you.
How old...
How old does Ame appear to you now?
Eh...
I’d say around 17 years old?
She’s 11.

P34
Eh...
11 years old!?
Even as we’re speaking, Ame’s remaining years are getting even shorter.
Even while she perfectly knows of all the consequences, she still insists on devotes her life to the people.
Do you understand now?
If you think that she is even just a little valuable,
Then don’t poke your nose in what we do anymore!!!

P35
U~~~~~~~~~mm!! I’m recovered!!!
*SHA*
*SHA*
So, Sarutahiko let’s search for this revengeful ghost from before!!!
*SHA SHA SHA*
Saying「Time is infinite」—— or something, those people are so short-tempered!!!
Fool!!
It’s a pain in the ass, so I won’t do it!!!
Here, all done!!
*PAT*
The place the revengeful ghost comes forth has it’s 「space」warped making it likely for a disaster to happen.
For example, when the weather went bad, and a tornado came.
Now that you now of this, we have to search for him quickly!!

P36
Several Hours Later, Along the Sumida River
*PO PO*
*ZAAA*
*AAA*
*NUUU*
Uwaah, what’s with this sudden heavy rain!!
Let’s hurry~
*HYUN*

P37
*BYUU*
One!
*HYURUN RUN RUN*
*BON*
Found you!!
*GU GU*

P38
Your head is mine.
*SHU*
Two!!
Three!!!
Four!!!!
*BI BISHI BI*
You guys, don’t really have to appear just because of your lingering affections,
If only you didn’t appear...
Ame wouldn’t end up having to use her POWER!!!
*GU GU...*
This rope...
Is it made to tie spirits up!?

P39
This is one of the Ten Sacred Treasures with the Heavenly Seal. TN : Amatsu Shirushino Mizutakara Tokusa.
It’s not only「 Orochi no Hirei」 entwining you, but also there an enclosing rope*. TN : Shimenawa, lengths of laid rice straw rope used for ritual purification in the Shinto religion. A space bound by Shimenawa often indicates a sacred or pure space, such as that of a Shinto shrine. Shimenawa are believed to act as a ward against evil spirits.
TIPS ③
The Ten Sacred Treasures with the Heavenly Seal
In the Japanese legends, Nigihayahino Mikoto was awarded with what are believed to be these ten treasures when the Heavenly God descended to Earth.
Ame-chan! Ame-chan!
Isn’t there anything I could help with!?
You know, something...
Sorry.
Everything is fine, please leave it to us,
It’s dangerous so you please step back for about 10 meters.
*SMILE*

P40
Five!
Six,
Seven,
Eight!
*SHURU*
*SHURU*
Only two points left!! TN : a bit like the cardinal points
*TA TA TA *
There is a set sequence to observe for the requiem of souls,
Firstly, using the Orochi no Hirei, I seal the moves of the revengeful ghost by entwining him from ten points... TN: Snake’s Fillet.
You’re a really tenacious person...
*NYU~~~~~~~~~~~~*
*~~~~~~~~~UU*

P41
I already do not care anymore about testing the sharpness of my blade...
You see~~~~~~e!!!
*SHU*
Guoh!!!
Kill!!
Kill,
Kill,
Kill,
Kill,
Kill!!
Kill!!
Kill.

P42
Heh!
So at last, here it is, the true nature of the revengeful ghosts!!
*GABU*

P43
Uwaa...
——Eh, his arm...
It doesn’t even hurt,
For a long time now, in order to fight you guys half of my body has only been mechanical.
Nine!!!
*BISHI*
*JA*
*JA JA JA*

P44
*BYU*
*PI...*
*GA*
*BI*
*GABU*
*GU*
Sarutahiko!!!

P45
*BODO*
*GUI*
Ten!!!!!
*GIN*

P46
Ame, do it!!!
—Yes!!
POWER—
*GUA*
*DON*

P47
*JA JA JA JA*
Shine through!!!
*DON*
Uoooooo...
*DROP DROP*
O...
O...

P48
*SHUUUUU*
*UUU*
*U...*
*KORO KORO*
*SU*
Okabe-san,
Your hatred has been sealed inside this ball.
It’s fine now,
As you are now, you can become a 「Spirit」.

P49
Spi... Spirit?
You’ll be guided to the Temple of the Ancient Times Sacred Grounds,
You’ll pass time there until your heart dies away then if you consent you’ll be able to enter Heaven.
Sarutahiko...
——What is it?

P50
*DROP DROP*
I told you, it doesn’t even hurt!
I’ll be able to have it mended right away when we get back to the Temple of the Ancient Times!!
I know,
I know but I can’t help it,
*SOB SOB*
It’s always making Ame cry.
Idiot,
Idiot.
You idiot.

P51
Hmph... A spirit, huh?
I see.
*ZUKIRI*
The feeling of wanting to kill to test my blade has settled.
However...
I really wonder what was that woman that pull be from the Afterlife when I was a revengeful ghost?
Details!!!
*KUA*
Uwaah, what’s with you people!!
Well,
I, as a revengeful ghost was firmly holding onto my lingering affections when I was in Afterlife,
*KOAAAA*
Then, out of the blue, I was called.
Okabe~~
Okabe Kikugai~~

P52
How about it?
Being there, how many hundred years do you think it’ll take for those unpleasant thoughts of yours to disappear ~~?
Do you want to take hold of this hand~~?
*GOBO*
Here, if you act even a little violently, you’ll become a revengeful ghost right away~~
You should know~~
It makes me the happiest to help others being regarded as revengeful ghosts~~
*GA*

P53
Some see · Some island.

P54
Haa!
It’s been a long time since it disappeared~~.
U~nn
She must have scrape off a little of her life to make the Return from Hell of Okabe Kikugai~~
Takemi Kajichi,
What time is it right now?
Wata...
Time and the like are meaningless, you know.

P55
No~~~~~~
*PERAN*
I don’t think that time is really such an absurd thing~~
Time is long between the times when people come to live and the time when they die,
It is inside people’s memories, inside their history and even inside the Afterlife.
Indeed.
No~~w, next
Will be a name~~
A name~~
If she doesn’t know the name, then even the power of language to souls’ 「POWER」cannot be activated~~
And in the end, she wouldn’t be able to execute the Return from Hell for revengeful ghosts~~ you see.
People to become Revengeful Ghosts, the list.
They’ve probably found out by now~~
I’ll have you executing the Return from Hell over and over~~!!

P56
——I get it,
You mean to say the recent consecutive revengeful ghosts disturbances all have a ringleader behind them.
Yeah,
Somewhere, someone is executing the Return from Hell for revengeful ghosts.
As for their intentions,
Probably to target the people!!!
We’ll have to stop the person behind such unforgivable actions at any cost, Sarutahiko!!
——At any cost, huh?
Jeez, she’s way too straightforward,
That’s why I...

P57
I won’t do it!
Let’s do our best!
I told you I really won’t do it.
And I’ll keep repeating it, let’s do our best.
They are...

P58-59
Now then,
Which revengeful ghost should I help?
The two girls able to execute the Return from Hell for the souls of people,
Ame and Wata.
Ame’s life
Is to be used to be helpful to everyone!!!
Involving the Afterlife and the Boundary, their battle is now——
Starting!!!
Fate... Has untied the perused time!
First Chapter END / Next issue, second chapter extended to 31 Pages! And the feelings explode on the Boundary!!
The Tale of the Afterlife.
