txt: A small discussion before
setting out to make the storm regalia...
And the stuff they're discussing is some highly classified information...!!
#: There's just one thing... I need to ask you in advance.
#: Ringo-kun... I mean, "thorn queen",
//: about that A-T you're wearing...
#: I received a report saying that it's not the original... and that it's a fake...
#: ...We call it the "pseudo-regalia" in sleeping forest.
#: It's a replica of the original regalia
//: made under the same concept and using the same materials.
//: it's ability is a far match from the real thing.
//: Inside it... it doesn't have what makes a regalia, a regalia...
#: It doesn't have a "core".
#: who has the original right now?
#: I don't know.
#: You don't know...? What's that meant to mean...?
#: I am certain that... Rika-nee...
//: the previous thorn queen, possessed the Thorn Regalia.
#: But... somewhere in the battle between Kilik-san and Takeuhi Sora that happened soon after,
#: it disappeared...
#: ...but... wasn't it Kilik-san and the others... who attacked Rika-san back then?
//: Are you sure that guy didn't just hide it somewhere?
#: ...I did ask him once before...
//: I don't have it.
#: While he won't explain every detail to you,
#: he is someone who'll answer you seriously when you ask...
#: So I guess... he really...
#: So that means... right now,
#: just looking at the facts, the seat of the "Thorn Queen" is vacant.
//: did you ask me that?
#: Does the name
//: ring any bells with you?
#: ...I've heard of it.
//: But I've never met him.
TL Note - I'm assuming 'Gazelle' is male... the text in this chapter doesn't say.
#: He was... the original owner of the thorn regalia.
#: The first generation "thorn king"
//: Together with Kilik-san and the others... he was a "first generation" gravity child.
#: We've arrived.
//: This is the lowest level of this ship. Let's go.
#: The conclusion we reached from our own investigation says that
#: when this gravity child: "Gazelle's" A-T was released out to the civilians,
//: it was also start of when people started calling themselves "kings".
small: I see...
#: Now that I think back... "back then"...
#: when Kilik-san was reminiscing with us...
#: I think... he said something like at...
flashback: The "thorn queen"?
flashback: Yeah, I finally found her.
//: It's a really cute girl, and she seems to be a little famous too.
flashback: When we left the tower,
//: we released the A-T Gazelle wore to the normal riders,
flashback: and before we knew it, people started talking about the "thorn regalia" and the "proof of a king's status".
#: Noyamano Rika, the successor of the "first regalia"
//: and living together with her would be
#: "crazy apple" Noyamano Ringo,
#: "princess spinner" Noyamano Ume,
//: "gale road" Noyamano Mikan,
//: and "Storm King" Minami Ikki...
#: No one
//: thinks this was a mere coincidence.
#: Stop beating around the bush!!
//: Just what are you trying to say!?
#: The truth is still...
//: hidden deep inside some shadows as complicated as forest of thorns.
#: But finally... bit by bit...
#: even I
//: am beginning to see it...
#: That this "thorn" is really
#: the "key person" that connects everything...
#: I wonder if
//: idiots really can't see it...
#: when they're about to die in one minute.
#: What about you? Are those big eyes of yours made of glass?
#: This is a real gun, you know?
#: I could flatten you just like a piece of paper right now, but...
//: I still have 55 seconds left.
#: That idiot!
#: He was so calm so I expected to have some kind of "plan", but...!!
#: If I use my "fang"... it'll get absorbed.
#: And if I get in close, there this "wall".
#: Shit!! What should I do...!?
#: I'm out of "options"...!
#: Your face looks like a girl.
//: But you really do have something down there. <3
//: you said something strange, didn't you?
#: I'm intrigued as to what it was.
#: Say it.
#: (just rub out the 'ツ')
#: To be the leader of the G-Men at your age...
//: Surely you have some special "power", right?
#: Weren't you acting all big and then you said something like "Who do you think I am"?
#: Gehh... Eghh!
//: ...jeez, you're so dirty...
small: ...This is why old men are such...
#: Wanijima Kaito
#: Your real name is
#: "Gazelle"... am I right?
