Chapter 15: Joystigmata
Emishi: This is bad! / I have to do something!
SFX Bubble: Taptap!
SFX: Thump thump thump thump thump
(?): Hey, hey!! / What was that sound?!!
(?): What happened to this guy? / Did someone hit him that hard?!
Guys: Taiju-san / got blown away…
Yamato: Maybe… / I used too much power in that one attack…
SFX: Slash / Slash
SFX Bubble: Beep beep!
Guys: The hell? / That’s one weird birthmark.
Kokuhaku: What have you been doing?! / If you don’t want me to slice you, you better give me a good explanation, caw!
Emishi: Do any of you…! / Do any of you / know how scary it is when no one else can hear the sound of your voice?!
Emishi: Back home, I was known as Emishi the Wimp. / Ooki Taiju and his friends would force me to do whatever they said!
Emishi: If I didn’t obey, they would hit me. / If I talked back to them, they would hit me.
Emishi: Everyone I tried to talk to / was afraid of getting involved, / so no one listened to me!
Yamato: Is that what triggered your Divine Gift over silence?
Emishi: I DIDN’T CARE WHAT WAS GOING TO HAPPEN TO ME ANYMORE!
Emishi: Thinking that, / I decided to risk my own life and punched Ooki.
Emishi: Enraged, Ooki chased after me. / He awoke then to his own Divine Gift, and silenced my voice before I could call for help.
Emishi: And I awoke to my Divine Gift at the same time!
Emishi: When I punch someone in the face, a controller appears on my arm! / I can then control that person however I will! / That is the power of Joystigmata!
Kokuhaku: So you’re not the user of the silence technique, caw?!
Emishi: Then Kikuchi appeared before us. / He brought us here, to Takamagahara!
Emishi: But the punks here / tried to control me using violence and made me their tool!
Emishi: Joystigmata can control the body, but it cannot control the head or mouth. / However, it can control the individual’s Divine Gift!
Emishi: Therefore, I used Ooki’s ability to make him silence himself/ and took over this class!
Guys: Emishi, you bastard! You were controlling Taiju? / So, that means you were controlling this class from the shadows?
Emishi: He had stolen my voice, / so I stole his!
SFX: Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha
Emishi: It’s not Game Over just yet!
Emishi: The Joystigmata has two controllers!
SFX: Whoosh / Screeeech
Izumo: I can’t control my body!
Izumo: Yamato-chan, / get out of the way!
Kokuhaku: The battle is still on! / I care not for his life, / but I must prevent things which would happen were he defeated!
Emishi: Damn! / Do you really think a sword can defeat a gun?!
SFX Bubble: TapTapTapTapTapTapTapTap
SFX: Right side: Bang Bang Bang / Bang Bang Bang
Left side: Ding Ding Ding / Ding Ding Ding
Bubbles: Musa / Musa / Musa / Musa / Musa / Musa
Emishi: You blocked all the bullets at point-blank range?!
Kokuhaku: Even if one cannot dodge the fired bullets, / if one watches the trigger and listens for gunshots, he can block them! / Being at point-blank range changes nothing!
Izumo: Whew. / Nice going, Yatagarasu.
Kuzumo: I know your Divine Gift can do far more than this, / Magatama.
Emishi: Shit! / 16-shot Rapid Fire! / Open Fire!
SFX: Click Click Click
Bubbles: Musa! / Musa! / Musa!
Emishi: What the hell?! / Why won’t it fire??
Izumo: Since you told me so much about your own Divine Gift, / I figure it’s only fair for me to tell you about mine.
Izumo: My “Magatama” ability allows me to turn the blood of animals into bullets. / So once I’ve emptied my clip, the animal runs out of blood and I can’t shoot anymore.
Izumo: And these are nutrients for him.
SFX: chomp chomp chomp chomp chomp
Emishi: I haven’t planned for that!!
Guys: One of them is out of bullets, and the other can’t even move! / Let’s jump him together!
Guys: What sort of orders have you been giving, you bastard?! / You’ve got balls, trying to trick us! / You know what’s gonna happen next, right?!
Guys: Kick his ass! / Bury him!
Emishi: Ah! / Ahhhhh!
SFX: Bam Bam Bam
Emishi: Taiju-kun? / Why would you…
Yamato: I guess you couldn’t hear / what he was saying.
Yamato: When you hit me with his Divine Gift, / I could make out within that wall of sound what he was saying:
Taiju: I’m sorry, Emishi
Taiju: I’m sorry, / Emishi.
Taiju: Here at Takamagahara, / my body was controlled by your Divine Gift, / and my voice was silenced by my own.
Taiju: At first, I wanted to scream at you with rage, / but eventually I understood.
Taiju: Back home, / I had done the same thing to you.
Taiju: I finally understood how you felt / when I made you obey me / and nobody would listen to your troubles.
Taiju: Ever since, / I’ve wanted you to hear me apologize from my own lips. / Please, forgive me, / Emishi.
Emishi: Thank you… / I’m sorry, too…
Guys: *Sniff* / What a good story….. / If Taiju says so, I guess we’ve gotta forgive him, too… / Though I’m still pissed off over having to shave my hair and draw a line in it.
Yamato: Well, / isn’t that great! / Everything’s worked out peacefully.
Yamato: So that was an indirect attack, / an attack I cannot see with my own eyes.
Yamato: It seems overwhelmingly strong compared to abilities like that cutter guy’s and the body stiffening guy’s, whose abilities only allow them to come straight at me…
Emishi: But Taiju-kun, / after taking that blow, are you still all right?
Taiju: Yeah. / Probably thanks to that man’s Divine Gift…
Taiju: We of Class 2 pledge ourselves to your service, / Yamato-san!
Yamato: Hey, hey! / Let’s not be so stiff over who’s in charge. / Comrades! / Yeah, let’s just think of each other as comrades!
Guy: He has such a wide heart! / He must have been a pretty famous boss back home!
Izumo: So, what about the Chouran?
Yamato: Yeah, the Chouran! / Give us the Chouran!
Emishi: Chouran? You mean Takamagahara’s special Chouran?
Yamato: Yeah, that’s the one. / Give it here.
Emishi: We don’t have it.
Yamato: What?! / Then who does?
Emishi: I don’t know if you’ve noticed, / but if you saw the Takeru School from above, it’s clear that it’s divided into four towers.
Emishi: The special Chouran / is held by one of the bosses who control those four towers. / No one knows which one has it.
Yamato: What?! / But that means--!
Sidebar: The battles continue!!
Kikuchi: But of course! / Did you really think you could conquer the Taker School so easily? / It boasts students with some of the most powerful attacks in all of Takamagahara!
