Beet The Vandel Buster Volume Seven Script:
Ch. 23: The Final Counterattack!!
Hazan: The "Vandel Scholar" Noa!!
Hazan: Here in person...
...To watch the battle.
Shaggi: It appears this event has attracted the interest of even the highest-ranking Vandels.
Shaggi: Now, is he interested in Lord Grineed...
Chapter 23: The Final Counterattack!!
Beet (reflection): Even if it swings wide, it's got incredible power!
There's no way he can attack me freely!
(Beet hits Grineed with the Boltic Axe)
Beet: I did it!!
Kiss: That's amazing!
He's matching Grineed blow for blow!
Kiss: I should have known Beet's unfathomable power would save us again!
Poala: No.. This is bad. If this keeps up, Beet will definently be defeated.
Poala: They're even now. But Beet...
Noa: ...Sadly, he has only the stamina of a human. That's all.
Beet (Reflection): What is he thinking? He won't move!!
Noa: Indeed, that boy's potential is marvelous.
But no matter how hard he strikes with his Saiga, he cannot kill Grineed, who is using his full Dark Power to strengthen his muscles.
Noa: Eventually, his strength for swinging that axe will reach it's limit.
Noa: I can already see...
...The result of this fight.
(Beet strikes Grineed with the Boltic Axe and hits.)
(Grineed regenerates and heals the damage from the blow.)
Grineed: So you begin to understand...
...How reckless your fight is.
Grineed: Here's how it works.
Because I'm strong, I can let you strike me all you want.
Grineed: But if I hit you just once... you're dead.
Beet: *Huff* *Huff*
Grineed: All I have to do is relax...
...And wait for you to tire yourself out.
Beet: You-- You evil--
Kiss (Reflection): No.
Kiss (Reflection): No. No! No!!
Kiss (Reflection): There's nothing we can do to help!
I can't even get near him! And I have no strength left anyway!
Kiss (Reflection): All we can do is sit here... And watch Beet get killed.
Kiss: Is this as far... ... as we go?
Poala: "As far as we go"? Is that what you said?
Kiss: N-no! I'm sorry! But...
Poala (Reflection): It's not! This isn't as far as we can go!
Poala (Reflection): If we let him die... ...Everything will end right here.
Poala (Reflection): I won't... ...Let that happen!
Beet: *Huff* *Huff* *Huff*
Beet (Reflection): E... Even though I'm just swinging it around...
Beet: *Huff* *Huff*
Beet (Reflection): ...It's starting to hurt!
*Grineed charges towards Beet*
*Beet swings the Boltic Axe and Grineed dodges*
Grineed: Ha ha! Do you mean to keep struggling?
Beet: Of course!!!
*Beet begins to swing the axe, but trips*
*As Beet was falling, the Boltic Axe struck Grineed's horn*
Grineed: You whelp!!!
*Grineed attempts to kick Beet, but Beet blocks with the Boltic Axe and then falls to the ground*
Beet (Reflection): I... I got it!
There's one... Just one... spot I can attack!!
Beet (Reflection): Drat... I should've noticed it sooner! Things would have gone a lot differently!
Beet: H--hey! Wait a sec!
Beet: That's reckless!!
*Poala jumps at Grineed, charging a fire Tengeki.*
*Poala attacks Grineed with the Fire Tengeki.*
Beet: P-Poala! You...
*Beet notices Poala's injuries*
Beet: You jumped right into the path of the axe... ...Just like I thought you might!
Poala: Yup! I'm lucky. My hands and feet could have been torn off!
Beet: But you hit that monster.
Beet: I've got to say, you're really reckless...
Poala: It looks like I only stopped him temporarily.
Poala: If only there was a way to strike a fatal blow...
Beet: There is!
Beet: It's his horn! His horn... We've got to break it!
Poala: His horn?
Poala: No way!! Vandels' horns are the hardest parts of their bodies!!
Beet: But... Don't they say the horns control their Dark Power?
Beet: Nothing we do can break through Grineed's muscles. But if we can break his horn, we can damage his skull, and maybe even destroy his ability to control his Dark Power!
Beet: That's... ...The only way!!!
Poala (Reflection): Breaking a Vandel's horn... That's not something you can manage on low power! With the strength Beet has left, what can he use to generate that type of impact?
Poala: You have to... ...Target the horn with your axe!
Beet: Yeah, but the axe is too heavy for me to control. Even before I tired out, I could only hit his body about one in five times.
Beet: The iron ball of the Shield is heavy, but it's easy to swing it in a straight line. Not like the axe.
Poala (Reflection): To swing the axe... ...in a straight line...
Poala: You can aim for his horn... ...with the axe!!
(Poala tells Beet the plan.)
Beet: Whaat!? Geez, how do you come up with these crazy ideas?
Beet: Look... That's pretty tough!! It won't succeed unless all three of us give 200 percent!
Especially you, Poala. You'll be taking on the hardest role... won't you? You realize that?
Poala: I did it. What a warm feeling!
Poala: Until now Beet, you were the one who'd do and say unbelievable things.
Beet (Flashback): Okay!! Let me join you!
Beet (Flashback): Make me one of the Zenon Warriors now!!!
Poala: I always just listened and watched in astonishment.
Poala: I made your jaw drop for the first time... ...Today!
Poala: I'm... different than I was before. Even if it's just bit by bit, I'm getting stronger.
Poala: That's why I'm sure I can do it! I'll prove it to you!
Poala: That's right. We won't end here -- absolutely not!!
Poala: Until the last day of the Dark Age, we'll carry on!!
Poala: Let's keep moving forward... ...Beet!!
Poala: A guy like this? We'll kick his butt with a single blow!!
Beet: Y-yeah... You're right!
Beet: Thanks, Poala.
Beet: I've never felt as sure of myself as you've made me feel today!
*Beet and Poala start moving*
Noa, Hazan, and Shaggi: ...!!?
*Beet puts away the Boltic Axe and starts summoning a different Saiga*
*Grineed finally brushes off Poala's Fire Tengeki and sees Beet.*
Grineed: You... You!!!
Beet (Reflection): I knew it! He's using the same attack!
Beet (Reflection): I'm counting on you...
Beet (Reflection): ...Kiss!!
Kiss: Y-you're kidding, right!? You can't be serious!
Kiss: I... I can't even stand up anymore!!
*Poala takes off her cape and slaps her face*
Kiss: You really... ...mean it, then.
Kiss: This is totally reckless. That'd make three miracles in a row!
Kiss: We can't pull off something like this without even practicing!
Poala: Miracles don't come from just practicing all the time... ...Kiss.
Poala: They're more likely to happen when you make a desperate effort without much rehearsal.
Poala: Don't you think so?
Hazan: The Fierce Wave of Infuriated Steel! The end has come!
Shaggi (Reflection): But... why?
Shaggi (Reflection): The boy must know that his axe is the only weapon that works. Why put it away?
Noa (Reflection): No... It can't be...
Poala: Unless you do your best, this strategy won't work. Make up your mind now -- Do it, or don't.
Poala: I know you can rise to the occasion!
Grineed: Blown... To smithereens!!
Grineed: You scum of the Earth!!!!
Poala: See, you stood! I know you can do this!
Kiss: You're a female Beet!
Kiss: Two peas in a pod...
Kiss: Let me say this while I still can. If I fail... ...I'm sorry!
Poala: Don't say that. If any of us fail, we'll all be annihilated on the spot. But... ...Kiss...
*Grineed begins to launch his attack*
Poala: ...If we succeed...
Poala: ...We'll be a miracle team!!
