Reiji: My sister… She never had the slightest intention of running!! / She was always planning on defeating the Angel, so that we could all be free!
Reiji: That’s right… So why did it take me… / so long to figure that out?
Reiji: My sister has never / disappointed me, not even once…
Reiji: I have… to stop her…
Reiji: It’s all my fault… / There’s no value in protecting someone as horrible as I…
[title]: Chapter 28: Siblings
Ishigami: You’re going to lose control over the angel soon!! / Galatea!!
Princess: At this rate, she will die.
Ishigami: I don’t care! That idiot actually thinks she can win!
Ishigami: Her chances are one-in-a-million! She would throw away both Reiji and this organization’s honor! / There’s nothing we can gain from this fight!
Princess: You think there’s nothing… to gain here?
Ishigami: What are you thinking—of course not! / At any rate, our deal’s off! So release the Angel already!
Princess: That is unacceptable. To let her die would be to break my promise.
Ishigami: They’ve already broken the contract!
Princess: And I’m trying to tell you, I won’t sit back and watch her die.
Ishigami: Out of my way!
Princess: Ryuu…! / Are you…?!
Natsuhi: What was that? It felt like something changed…
Reiji: Nee-san! I’m begging you, please run away!
Reiji: I want… I want you to… / to please just forget about me!!!!
Ayaka: Huh? / It’s starting to move faster…?!
Ayaka: This is impossible…!! / I can’t slip under its guard…?!
Reiji: Wait, what? You’re quitting gymnastics? / Why? You’re so good!
Ayaka: Well, it’s not like I plan on turning pro; / I’m no match for people with true talent.
Ayaka: And this means I’ll get home earlier, / so we’ll always be able to eat dinner together at home, Reiji.
Reiji: Nee-san had a perfect poker face when she said that, but… / I knew… It was just an inkling, but I knew the true reason she quit gymnastics…
Reiji: It was so she could get home before me and prepare dinner. / But… I didn’t stop her… / I was so happy that my sister would be at home waiting for me, and her food was so warm and loving…
Reiji: I was always like that… / pretending to not have seen my sister’s sacrifices.
Reiji: Ha… haha…. / Hehheh… Hehhehheh…
Reiji: Wait for me, Nee-san… / I’ll be right there to save you.
Natsuhi: Don’t go, Reiji!! / If you do, you’ll die!! / You’ll be throwing away your life for nothing!
Ishigami: How pathetic… You really made a fool out of me, / you little Psychopath…I
Ishigami: Right up until the end, she continued the farce of fighting for her brother’s sake. It never occurred to me… / that a Psychopath could maintain that hypocrisy…
Princess: Do you still not understand, Ryuu?
Princess: You lost / to those children.
Reiji: Let go, Natsuhi! If we don’t go save her, Nee-san will die!
Natsuhi: Get a hold of yourself! She’s already…
Natsuhi: R-reiji… / L-look… over there…
Reiji: Didn’t she… / get nailed in the head?
Spectators: Hey, look! / She stood back up!
Ishigami: But… but how?
Ishigami: How are you still alive, / Tachibana Ayaka?
Reiji: Please, wait!!!
Reiji: Please, stop this already!
Reiji: President Ishigami, / I’m begging you!!
Reiji: Please, save my sister! It might not be too late! / I’ll do whatever you ask; please, just save my sister!!!
Ishigami: Please calm down, Reiji-kun. / There seems to have been a bit of an accident…
Ishigami: However, this is still within the scope of my plan.
Reiji: But that means…
Ishigami: That’s right.
Ishigami: Giving her a head wound was a tool we had prepared… That certainly must have rendered quite the shock onto you, but it was Ayaka-kun who earlier didn’t act according to plan. / In order to satisfy the Takers gathered here and save your sister, emergency measures were necessary…
Ishigami: But there is no need to worry. Your sister will quickly recover. / Now she will retreat according to the original scenario, and everything will be all OK.
Reiji: But… how is she…
Reiji: How is she supposed to escape in that condition?! / She’s been hit in the head, and is barely aware!
Ishigami: We will find out for ourselves soon enough.
Ishigami: Now that her consciousness has left her, the girl will certainly act according to instinct! / And her instincts are that of a Psychopath!
Ishigami: What are her genes telling here? / That family and friends are meaningless before a hopeless battle!!
Ishigami: Take a good, hard look, Reiji-kun! / Ayaka-kun is right about to start making her move!!
Reiji: Do you really think…
Reiji: that this is a joke?! / You piece of shit!
Reiji: She’s barely standing, she’s barely breathing, so enough with your bullshit! / Stop this! If you don’t, she’ll die!
Ishigami: Shut up! Do you still not get it?!
Ishigami: The only way she can live is by running away! Now, while we’re restraining the Angel! It’s now or never for her! / She should flee pitifully, as her instincts as a Psychopath demand!
Ishigami: Ultimately, you lot would have ended up as Tachibana Ayaka’s prey, and nothing else! She would have betrayed you!! / Why won’t you understand that?!
Ishigami: If you want to survive, you have to accept reality as it is! / A Psychopath will never act for the benefit of others!! So accept that already! Accept Tachibana Ayaka’s true nature!!!
Natsuhi: Is she… / still going to fight?
Spectators: Hey, is she… is she still moving? / You’re right…
Spectators: Does that mean… that she still intends to fight?
Spectators: The idiot… She nearly got her head blown clean off.
Ayaka: Rei… ji…
Ayaka: Let’s… go home… / To…ge…ther...
Reiji: I’m coming, Nee-san!!
Ishigami: Tachibana Reiji!!!
Reiji: I couldn’t trust… / my own sister!
Reiji: Just throw away your Sorcery Device, Nee-san!!
Reiji: Aren’t you just using “protecting me” as an excuse / to justify murder?
Reiji: You idiot!! What does Psychopath even mean, anyways?! / Just that someone has a strong ego!!
Reiji: But the one with the biggest ego, who was the most selfish, who was always so naïve… / was none other than myself…!!
Reiji: My sister suffered so much for me… / I was the one who was always focused on what I wanted.
Reiji: She’s not the real Psychopath… I am!! / AYAKA-NEE-SANNNNNNNNNN!!!!!
Ishigami: Right… At this rate, it’s best if… / Tachibana Ayaka dies here and now…
Spectator: What the?!
Spectator: Wh-what’s happening all of a sudden?! / Did a door open?!
Ishigami: Galatea… / What did you do?!
Spectator: It’s—it’s an Angel! / Ahhh! I’ve never seen one that big!
Ishigami: Did the Life Galatea released draw them / to the inside of the doorway?
Spectator: Everyone, form up! / Start by surrounding the smaller ones and taking them out!!
Spectator: Dammit!! There’s too many of them!!
Natsuhi: Hurry up… / If we don’t get out of here now, we’ll…
Reiji: The princess?
Reiji: Please… save her…
Reiji: If you can just save my sister… / I’ll give you my soul, or whatever else you want…
Natsuhi: I’m sorry I wasn’t able to keep my promise. / Ayaka’s actions went… beyond what I was able to predict…
Princess: Don’t be afraid… let me control your bodies…
Princess: This space is connected to a safe place. / No Taker will be able to follow you there…
Reiji: Princess… are you…?!
Princess: Look at them… Look at this pathetic spectacle they have wrought… They sacrifice others, looking out only for themselves… / This is a world where the only source of happiness is one’s own personal survival.
Princess: That is why… we must depart.
Princess: We must depart from this world filled with people who love only themselves
Princess: so that the light of your souls, which drive you to so selflessly give of yourselves for the sake of others,
Princess: will never be extinguished.
Princess: Let us go.
Reiji: Ishigami… / Ryuusuke!!!
