Renee: Half-Akuma, created by the North American Branch. // As the Third Exorcists, they are to be the newest addition to our military force.
[Insert text: A horrifying team...!!]
186th Night: Illusion
[Side text: An aloof swordsman living in the rift between life and death: Kanda Yuu. What lies reflected in his jet-black eyes...?]
[Box: Black Order / Asian Branch]
[Box: Gate Chamber]
Bak: Aaargh... let me go! I said I'm going, so I'm going...!
Wong: Bak-sama, calm down, I beg of you! / Oww!
Rikei: You can't just charge in and attack Central! / Unghh!
Bak: [aside]hnghhh...![/aside] // Damn you, LeVerrier! Making Renee do a despicable thing like transforming humans into part-Akuma...! / I'm going to stop this if I have to go to the Pope himself! // GET OFF MEEEE~!
Rikei: Don't let him go, Fou-san!
Wong: Ahh, it pains me to see you in such distress, Bak-sama...
Fou: Calm down already, you stupid MORON!!
Bak: I'm not a moron!
Fou: Look... these half-Akuma experiments or whatever have succeeded
already. / It's been proven that they're a valuable fighting force. You really think you can get rid of them that easily?! // That's why Komui Lee isn't raisin' any complaints as well, right?
Bak: But still...
People: Now then, let's get back to work, shall we, Branch Chief~? // Since that Gate was installed, he's been going out far too much and not getting nearly enough work done...
Bak: W - Wait! Get off me~!
Guard: Welcome to the Branch! May I have your identification number?
Bak: ! // K... // Kanda Yuu?!
[Box: Asian Branch, Cafeteria]
People: We're out of vegetables! Hurry it up! // B-set for two!
Fou: Old man Zhu! // Old man Zhu!
Fou: OLD MAN ZHU, KANDA YUU IS HERE!!
Zhu: That's the vegetables nice and finely sliced...
Fou: Gahh! Where's this guy's hearing aid~~~?!
Bak: Oh, I see... Old man Zhu wanted to see you.
Kanda: Yeah, that's the deal. / I'm not a certain Branch Chief, I don't go visiting places for no reason.
[Label: A certain Branch Chief who often visits Headquarters for no reason]
Wong: [aside]ahahah[/aside] // Bak-sama, look here, it's a lucky tea stalk!
Bak: Well... / I guess Mugen is
the greatest work that old man ever made, after all. // [aside]care for some tea?[/aside」
Wong: [aside]you must forgive Bak-sama; he is venting a little stress.[/aside]
Bak: It makes sense that he'd want to check up on its wielder too.
Bak: (So awkward!!)
Wong: (Bak-sama, please, talk as much as you wish!)
Bak: (But his face is scary!)
Kanda: So... / They've started it again, huh...
Kanda: This time they're turning people into half-Akuma so they can feed on other Akuma? // Brilliant, just brilliant.
Bak: !! // (He's talking about the Third Exorcists...) // I knew it... // We have hurt you, haven't we...
Bak: No, no, it is only natural... / I am so sorry, Kanda!
Kanda: Wait, wait -
Bak: We failed to keep the promise we made to you! // Hit me!
Bak: I have no excuses to make! Just hit me, Kanda!! Hit me with all your -
Kanda: I'm not "hurt"!
Kanda: Stop coming up with weird ideas. // You don't have a thing to apologise for. // I don't give a crap what happens to the Order.
Bak: ...You may... / ...feel that way... // But that's not how we... feel about you. // It was our clan... / ...who created you in the Synthetic Disciple Project that Central forced upon us... // ...nine years ago...
Bak: Caught up in our dreams of a group of "Second Exorcists"... // ...it was my clan, the Chan family, and Renee's, the Epstein family, that made that huge mistake...
Flashback!Zhu: Kanda... // Do you still see the flower? // I see... // Let's keep this a secret, just between you and me. // You mustn't dwell on it. // It is just an illusion. // That flower is an illusion.
Rikei: Give us a break already, old man Zhi.........! // Why the heck were you keeping your hearing aid in your underwear?! That's disgusting!
LouFa: You made us waste our whole lunch break~!
Shifu: I don't even feel like eating any more...
Zhu: Perhaps I'm getting old...
Fou: Ya damn well ARE, you stupid old fart!
Zhu: Well, what's so wrong with that? They do say that good things will happen to you if you're kind to old people!
[Box: Manufacturer of Anti-Akuma Weapons / (Also Head Chef of the Asian Branch) / Swordsmith Zhu Mei Chan]
Fou: I'm older than you are, you know?
Rikei/LouFa: Th - th - th - th - that wonderful figure is...!
Zhu: What's all this now?
LouFa: [aside]a good thing happened~~~![/aside] / It's Walker-san~~~~!♥
Rikei: It's Lenalee-chan~~~~~~!♥
Allen: Lou Fa-san! / Thank you for the present you sent me. // [aside]it was delicious!♪[/aside]
LouFa: Y - You ate it then?! My mitarashi dango~!
Rikei: Lenalee-chan, what brings you here? We don't see you very often around these parts!
Lenalee: Oh, well, we got a mission, you see, and...
Link: Walker! This is no time for idle chatter. We must find Kanda Yuu at once.
Allen: Yes, yes...
LouFa: [aside]he's got taller again...!♥[/aside]
Tokusa: We will remain here and await your return.
Tokusa: Be quick about it, if you would, Master Disciple.
Allen: We've got a major mission to attend to in Istanbul, and we're here to find Kanda so he can come with us. / Do you know where he is?
Rikei: I think he's with the Branch Chief at the moment.
LouFa: ...Are those people the half-Akuma "Third Exorcists" we've been hearing about...? // They're kind of creepy... / I can see why they make Chief Bak angry. I'm not too sure about all this myself.
Rikei: But they are
going to be a real boost to our forces...
Rikei: Isn't it kind of unavoidable? It's not like we can control when we find new compatible Innocence users... / Having them around is going to help take some of the burden off Walker and the other Exorcists!
LouFa: But making people into half-Akuma... doesn't that make us hardly any different from the Earl?
Allen: [aside]huh?[/aside] // Um... you two...?
Rikei: It's easy enough to talk idealistic nonsense like that, but that's not going to help us win this war, is it?! / You just don't get it, Lou Fa! If we lose, we're all going to die! How can you...
LouFa: So what?!! // If we won by doing a thing like that... // ...that just wouldn't feel right, would it...?!
Rikei: H... / Hey...?!
Rikei: Ahh! // D - Don't cry............!
Shifu: What do you think you're doing, Rikei?
Allen: I think you'd better apologise, Rikei. // [aside]you can't go around making girls cry.[/aside]
Rikei: I - / I'm sorry!
Lenalee: Don't cry, Lou Fa-san.
Allen: It's all right, Lou Fa-san. // Whatever may happen to the Order... / ...we'll still be us. // As long as we keep moving forward for what we believe in, it will be all right! // ("It will be all right"...) // We'll all end up smiling in the end!
Allen: (I recited those words as though they were some kind of charm.)
LouFa: [aside]I'm sorry![/aside]
Rikei: [aside]what's that for? The argument's over already![/aside]
Allen: The future, huh...
Shifu: [aside]that's right.[/aside]
Zhu: Dear me... this truly does... / ...make one consider one's own sins...
Flashback!Zhu: (Say, Kanda... // Do you still see the flower...?)
