Chapter 285: The Final Night
Yoshimori's mother returns home… out of the blue.
Are your father and everyone else inside?
They’re here but…
Side text: His mother, whom he has not seen for years, has come home. Or should I say, returned
Why did you come back now of all times?!
You were the one who brought the dragon to Karasumori, weren't you?
That time, you disappeared without even showing your face!!
How many years have you been away from this house?!
Many things have happened since then, Karasumori was attacked, a full war was declared on the Urakai, and many people were killed!! A big deal!!
Why of all time…?
Side text: The son can't help being angry…
Does it have to be now?
Things have been moving fast around here---
Managed to master the Blank state, didn’t you?
How did you know…?
Show it to me now?
You are such a prodigal son!!
Where have you wandered around all these years?!
Better properly apologize to Shuuji-san!
I did that a while ago.
And don’t forget the kids too…
the essays I've written, the handicrafts and also tests…
There’s sure a lot of them.
There, the teacher praised me on this essay!
Aah, Toshimori is just like your grandfather.
Sumiko--, can you help me out in the kitchen?
Eh— mom, you don’t have to go.
Father has been doing that alone…
Well, why doesn’t Toshimori help out as well?
Ah, father, how about a second?
Please let Sumiko handle that.
By the way,
We went to the Mushiki pond for our school trip.
Sumiko, are you sure you have enough rice?
HW: there’s still a lot more
I thought I would arrive late, so I had something on the way…
Anyway, we do have a kid here in this house that’s at his prime.
Ah, how is Masamori?
What’s your purpose coming back now?
I told Yoshimori about it…
I’m here to meet
Of course, the one in Karasumori.
Are you saying that you want to move Otono-sama’s soul to another being?!
Do you know what you’re saying?
Otono-sama is alive.
He has been trapped in the spirit world on this land for 400 years.
This family business known as Kekkaishi,
Was started when our founder Hazama Tokimori served the Karasumori family, who had high spirit energy which attracted ayakashis.
Even after the Karasumori family was overthrown, their souls were enshrined in this “Land which all gathered” and were worshipped till this day…
That legend is most probably crap.
But the bit about the Karasumori family being able to sense the supernatural is true,
At the very best, they could see it. It wasn't any great skill.
There was one exception.
Tokimori-sama used all his strength,
To seal that person into the land when no one was around.
I am here to meet that person.
Otono-sama is still alive?
He’ll never die.
Don’t tell me that is your responsibility?
I’ll leave tomorrow morning with Otono-sama.
And another thing,
I’ll be taking Yoshimori with me.
Eh? But Yoshimori still has to attend school!
There's nothing I can do about it.
Yoshimori is the most compatible person,
With Otono-sama, it’ll be a set of 2 people.
Stop being so inconsiderate.
Have you ever considered the children’s feelings?
Don’t throw away the prime of his life,
You’ve made him lonely enough as it is.
Are you going to just do what's convenient for you again?!
It’s alright, Dad.
I’ll go with mom.
It’s not my place to say no…
This is horrible!!
Always get to have it your way!
It’s alright if you don’t go.
Is this really alright for you…?
That land is…
Already a lost cause.
That’s why we should finish the preparation as soon as possible.
We’ll seal it completely in the next land.
Then, that’s more
Reason why I have to go.
He still seems distraught after Souji-kun disappeared…
We’re going to see Otono-sama now.
Please convey that message..
What is this all about… Yoshimori?
Will be the last night for the land of Karasumori---
The night is drawing to an end. Has the need to fulfill the prophecy arrived…? A surprise in the next chapter!
