Lower right: Chapter 6: The Gate to the Eternal Realm
I, Tachibana Tsukumo, am the girl in whom dwells the power to bestow eternal life, / the Maiden of the Tokijiku.
Yao is the boy who received eternal life from the Maiden of the Tokijiku, / the Shield of the Tokijiku.
And the two of us have resolved / to once again become human.
Therefore, in order to meet with the Holy Tree of the Tokijiku, / we must first go to the land of the gods, the Eternal Realm.
The gate to that realm, / the Gate to the Eternal Realm…
is apparently contained within my school.
Yao: I have no surname. Just call me Yao.
Yao: Nice to meet you.
Girls: He has no surname? What’s that supposed to mean? / But isn’t he kind of cute?
Tsukumo: …….. / Everything feels so different.
Chii-chan: Hey, Yao-kun, are you really living at Tsukumo’s house? / What’s your relationship?
Tsukumo: Chii-chan, how do you know that?!
Tsukumo: I— / I mean, our relationship is, well…
Chii-chan: Are you cousins, or relatives, or…
Chii-chan: Or have you already starting hitting on him?
Tsukumo: Chii-chan, don’t ask that so bluntly!!!!
Yao: Hit him? / ?
Yao: We have, yeah.
Tsukumo: We have not!!!
Chii-chan: Ahaha, sorry. / But Tsukumo,
Boys: Tell us all about it.
Chii-chan: I’m glad you’ve found someone you like.
Tsukumo: Someone I like?
Yao: Tsukumo, / let’s split up and search for the Gate to the Eternal Realm. / The gate exists as a pair. We need to find them both.
Aria: Yao / doesn’t like you at all!
Aria: Yao has thought of only one person: Murasaki!!
Yao: Hey, are you listening?
Yao: Tsukumo! / What is it?
Thought bubble: He’s only thought of Murasaki for the last 800 years
Tsukumo: Ah. / Mm…
Yao: Look, I’ve set up a barrier inside the school. / It should stop any Tsukumo-gami from getting in, freeing us to split up.
Tsukumo: Huh? Yeah. / Split up…
Tsukumo: See ya!
Tsukumo: No. I can’t look at Yao’s face right now.
Tsukumo: Murasaki was the first Maiden of the Tokijiku, right? / If she was the first one, she must have had something special to her. / Actually, wait.
Tsukumo: Who, exactly, / was Murasaki?
Tsukumo: Do I love him? / I don’t think that’s quite right, Chii-chan.
(?): Mnngh!! / Mn!
Sign: Principal’s Office
Tsukumo: You stupid brat!
Aria: Aria wanted to go to school together with Yao!!
Tsukumo: And what’s with that uniform?
Aria: My cover is that I’m a high school girl who skipped lots of grades!
Tsukumo: Hey, Aria? / Do you know anything about Murasaki?
Tsukumo: Please, tell me about Murasaki and Yao…
Aria: You’re jealous.
Animal thing: Squeal!
Aria: Long, long ago, like super long ago, / there was a super-poor village. / In it, there were two childhood friends, a boy and a girl.
Aria: The two were always together. / They were super-duper in love.
Aria: But a god fell in love with the girl at first sight and made her his bride. / So the two were separated.
Aria: So his love was stolen by a god, given power, and returned to the village. / The poor village became more and more prosperous, and the girl became the divine guardian of the village. / And then,
Aria: the girl gave the boy immortality. / And they all lived happily ever after.
Tsukumo: Wait—then Murasaki was the one who made Yao immortal? / Why?
Aria: I dunno. Aria doesn’t know more than that.
Tsukumo: But Yao / never wished for immortality.
Yao: Kill me.
Tsukumo: That’s just…
Girls: Nooo! / Eeeeekk!!!
Monster: To… / Toki…jiku.
Aria: A Tsukumogami!! / <aside: Yuck! >
Tsukumo: Aria, / you have to go tell Yao!
Aria: You can just die, Tsukumo! <3
Aria: Good luck, stupid!
Tsukumo: That wasn’t what I meant!!
Tsukumo: Dammit! / Now we’re stuck on the roof!
Tsukumo: What do I do? Now I’ve gotten my whole school involved…
Yao: It’s aiming for you! / So don’t cover people, stupid!!
Tsukumo: Don’t yell at me… / You said you had set up a barrier!
Tsukumo: I saved you last time, and the time before that. / You’re really weak, aren’t you!
Yao: Tsukumo, / what are you saying? / What’s going on with you today?
Flashback: the girl gave the boy immortality. / And they all lived happily ever after.
Tsukumo: Why… / Why / would Murasaki—
Yao: I can’t break free!!
Tsukumo: Why did Murasaki make Yao immortal? / And why, after what she did, does he continue to think of her?
Tsukumo: When Yao’s in pain,
Tsukumo: I’m in pain, too.
Tsukumo: So this is what pain feels like…
Girls: That was so disgusting!!! / What was it?!!
Tsukumo: Are you OK? Are you hurt?
Yao: Aria, / did you destroy the barrier?!
Aria: Yao, you meanie! / Aria: Aria doesn’t know anything about the barrier!
Girls: Hee hee. / So that was a barrier.
Girls: You’re a super good girl, Tokijiku-chan! <3 / We think we’ve grown fond of you.
Tsukumo: Huh? Umm…
Yao: Oh, / so it’s you.
Girls: We’re the Tsukumo-gami of the Gate to the Eternal Realm.
