Title: Chapter 5: Aria’s Scorn
Aria: let’s do something that feels good together. <3
(left side): Life flickers in the wintery, desolate sky.
Sign: Tachibana Kendojo
Tsukumo: My father’s probably training…
Yao: He should have already been contacted by the main house. It’s fine.
Tsukumo: What—wait! It’s not fine at all!
Father: Maiden of the Tokijiku, / congratulations on your ascent to divinity.
Tsukumo: He never even came to visit me while I was in the hospital… / He didn’t call or e-mail me, either… / And moreover,
Tsukumo: I’ve lost my sense of taste.
Tsukumo: Ever since I was able to use that power, / I’ve truly become less and less human…
Tsukumo: I haven’t told Yao yet. / At times like this, there’s only two people I really want to talk with…
Yao: What happened to your usual bold self? / You can worry after we’ve seen them.
Tsukumo: Yeah. / They’re just my parents.
Tsukumo: I’m sure they’ll greet me the same way they always do. / I’m home!!
Parents: Mmmm! / Mmmng!!!!
Tsukumo: <Wingdings>!! / <Wingdings>…….!!
Yao: Tsukumo, step aside.
Tsukumo: Huh? What? What’s going on?!
Yao: Show yourself, / Aria.
Aria: Tee hee. / You figured it out.
Aria: I super, duper / missed you!
Tsukumo: A / girl?
SFX bubble: Beep
Yao: Don’t you dare lay a hand on Tsukumo, / Aria!!
Aria: No! I wanna!
Aria: Does it hurt? Does it?
Aria: I’ll make it hurt even more!
Aria: And the final touch!
Aria: Oh, Yao. / You’ve been drinking amazake, haven’t you? <3
Aria: There you go.
Aria: Those are special handcuffs with thorny insides. / Doesn’t it feel like your wrists are about to come off? / And you can’t use Kotodama, either. / You can’t escape.
Aria: Oh, people look so sexy / as they near death.
Aria: And you look great, Yao! <3
Tsukumo: Who the hell are you?!!
Aria: I am the Tsukumo-gami Aria. / I’ve had a hot and painful relationship with Yao for the last 200 years.
Tsukumo: You’re a Tsukumo-gami?
Aria: I super-duper-ultra hate you, Tokijiku, / for getting in our way!
Aria: With men you wound the body, but with women you wound the heart.
Aria: I want to hear your gasp in ecstasy.
Tsukumo: Mn! / Ah! / Stop
(Panel 4, sfx on the bottom): Ahhh hah hah aheh aheh
Tsukumo: She’s happy?!!
Tsukumo: Enough of this!! / Let everyone down right now!!
Aria: Then, / let’s play a game.
Aria: We’ll play tag. / If you win, I’ll listen to you.
Aria: And of course…
Yao: Mn! / Mngh!!
Aria: Aria’s It!
Aria: If I catch you, I’m gonna kill you!!!!
Parents: Mnnngh!! / Mnnnnn!!
Tsukumo: She won’t listen to me. / What do I do? I need to find a weapon…
Tsukumo: What… / What is this?!!
Tsukumo: She must have done this. / Don’t tell me my room is like this, too?
Aria: Well? Well?! / Do you like it? / Doesn’t the interior design trigger your endorphins? <3
Tsukumo: I can feel the norepinephrine flowing through me.
Box: Norepinephine is a substance inside your brain which awakens fighting instincts.
Below the box: Brain Expert / Shirako.
Tsukumo: You stupid / kid!!!!
Tsukumo: I have to hurry and save everyone! / Why would you do such a horrible thing to them?
Aria: Why? / Oh! / I never told you, did I?
Aria: is the Tsukumo-gami of an Iron Maiden.
Aria: I’ll make you give me a hug / and play with me.
Aria: So many people used to play with me some four hundred years ago. / But no one comes to play anymore.
Aria: But with Yao around, / I’m not lonely anymore. / Even if I stab him with needles and his blood flows out, he gives me more and more hugs.
Aria: Yao’s ragged breath, / his contorted face, / his dying gasps...
Aria: I love / Yao!
Tsukumo: But that’s… / Well, what about Yao’s feelings?
Tsukumo: Yao has been in pain forever. / I want to free him from that. / So,
Tsukumo: the two of us are going to become human again.
Aria: Huh? / What?
Aria: Yao has to be immortal! / I won’t let you do that!
Aria: Die, Tokijiku!!!
Aria: It’s / empty?!
Aria: You’re wide open!!!!
Aria: Cough / cough / It hurts! / It hurrrts!
Aria: No! / Stop!!! / Quit it!!!
Tsukumo: With men you wound the body, / but with women you wound the heart.
Aria: Wahhhhhhhhhhh!!!! / Don’t actually write on me, stupid!!!!!!
Tsukumo: Are you all right, Yao?
Yao: Ah, yeah.
Aria: Yao, I’m sorry, I’m sorry!
Tsukumo: Hey! Do you want me to tease you again?
Yao: Sorry. She won’t attack you anymore, Tsukumo. / She doesn’t really bear any ill will against—
Aria: — Yes I do.
Yao: At any rate,
Yao: we’re sort of… / inseparable, I guess.
SFX: Smack Smack Kiss Kiss Lick Lick
Tsukumo: Huh? / Yao, / you let her / do that to you?
Aria: Don’t flatter yourself, Tokijiku. / Yao doesn’t like you at all!!!
Aria: For the last 800 years, / Yao has thought of only one person: Murasaki!!
Aria: Don’t get full of yourself, you foolish fool!
Tsukumo: Wasn’t Murasaki the first Maiden of the Tokijiku? / And if he thinks of her constantly, does that mean he liked her?
Tsukumo: So Yao has someone / he likes, too.
Tsukumo: How has Yao lived / for the 800 years before I met him?
Tsukumo: Well, I mean, it’s not like I really care. It doesn’t matter to me!!
Father: Tsukumo. / …my lady.
Father: My humblest apologies, Lady Tsukumo. / Again you have had danger thrust upon you…
Tsukumo: Stop it… / Don’t talk to me so formally, / Father…
Tsukumo: Bahahahaha!!!! Ahahahahaha!!!! / How can I take you two seriously when you look like that?!
Parents: Well, / I mean… / Tsukumo…
Tsukumo: I’m home.
Parents: The two of you are going to return to being human?! / Tsukumo, you…
Aria <aside>: Don’t do it!
Tsukumo: You explain, Yao.
Yao: In order to erase the power of the Tokijiku within Tsukumo and myself, I suspect…
Yao: we will need to meet with the god who first gave that power to the Maiden of the Tokijiku.
Yao: That deity lives in the land of the gods, / in the Eternal Realm.
Yao: First, we will need to open the gate to the Eternal Realm. / However, it hasn’t opened once these past 800 years.
Yao: However, we know where it is.
Yao: It’s on top of a hill just outside of town,
Yao: in the high school Tsukumo attends.
