Murasaki: Who are you?
Usui: I am...
Text: Another child who looks just like Murasaki!?
Usui: My name is Suzakujin Usui.
Ginko: I'm shocked.
Ginko: I didn't expect to make contact with the Four Western Gate families so quickly.
Shinkurou: The Four Western Gate families?
Tamaki: Now this is amazing.
Tamaki: It's like she's standing in front of a mirror.
Yamie: If you mixed them up, it would be impossible to tell them apart.
Koto: Oh, c'mon now.
Koto: I can tell them apart.
Koto: After all, our young master is a bit cuter.
Murasaki: I am Murasaki.
Ginko: W-wait, Murasaki-chan!!
Ginko: Don't name yourse-
Murasaki: I am Kuhouin Murasaki!!
Usui: So you are Murasaki-sama.
Murasaki: That's right!
Murasaki: And that is my honey, Shinkurou!
Murasaki: And they are Tamaki, Yamie, and David.
Murasaki: I didn't know you came with us.
Usui: Excuse me, but...
Usui: That cat belongs to a guest of my house.
Usui: Perhaps she is a friend of yours.

Kirihiko: Until then, feel free to have your wounds treated at my house.
Koto: What!? Why do we need to do that for her!?
Usui: Let us go, Koto.
Koto: Ehh? Really!?
Kirihiko: It's too hot...
Shinkurou: Wh-what an amazing house...
Koto: Young master...
Koto: Should we really be...
Koto: inviting in these unknown people...
Koto: during this time of such dispute?
Usui: We are the ones that were unnecessarily suspicious of these guests and treated them violently.
Usui: We cannot be so rude as to...
Usui: merely part ways once our business with them is over.
Koto: Young master is cute even while angry!
Koto: What are you standing there for?
Koto: Our young master invited you in...
Koto: so, please, do not refrain from entering.
Koto: we must insist that you obey the rules of the West.
Ginko: You must not mention...
Ginko: that you are connected to the <Houzuki> family.
Shinkurou: Wh-why not!?
Shinkurou: And what is all this about the rules of the west and the Four Western Gate families?
Ginko: is a special place.
Shinkurou: A special place?
Ginko: It is the only place in this country...
Ginko: where the outer and inner thirteen families have no power.
Ginko: Four families rule both the outer and inner portions of Kyoto.
Ginko: They are known as the Four Western Gate families.
Ginko: They are the <Seiryuujin>, <Byakkojin>, <Genbujin>,
Ginko: and <Suzakujin> families.
Ginko: They are said to be the descendants of the military nobles who were appointed as the defenders of Kyoto in ancient times.
Ginko: With both "outer" assets and "inner" supernatural powers, they set up a powerful barrier around Kyoto without anyone noticing.
Ginko: After a long history of resistance, they finally succeeded in eliminating the outer and inner influence of the other families.
Ginko: Do you understand now...
Ginko: just how dangerous it is for a Houzuki and a Kuhouin to be within that barrier?
Ginko: So do not speak the name <Houzuki>.
Ginko: And of course make sure to attentively protect Murasaki-chan.
Tamaki: That really was a surprise.
Tamaki: I can't believe how similar you two look.
Yamie: Heh heh. It appears the girl is upset.
Murasaki: Of course I am!!
Murasaki: I can't believe...
Murasaki: Shinkurou would mistake someone else for me...
Usui: I-I am very sorry about that.
Koto: Why are you apologizing, young master?
Tamaki: Hey, hey!
Tamaki: Then how about this?
Yamie: Don't play around too much, Tamaki.
Shinkurou: Murasaki and the others sure are taking their time.
Shinkurou: Hey, Ginko.
Shinkurou: Was the reason you came to Kyoto...
Shinkurou: to meet with the Four Western Gate families?
Shinkurou: Is there a connection between them and Ginji-san?
Tamaki: Sorry about the wait!!
Tamaki: Now, Shinkurou-kun.
Tamaki: Which one is Murasaki-chan!?
Shinkurou: Why are you just playing around, Tamaki-san!?
Tamaki: So you can't tell?
Shinkurou: If they're wearing the same clothes...
Shinkurou: they look exactly the same...
Shinkurou: This one.
Tamaki: Wow, that's right!!
Murasaki: So you really are my Shinkurou!!
Tamaki: That's amazing, Shinkurou-kun. This must be love!
Tamaki: Seeing those two is enough to bring out my passion even during the day!
Shinkurou: Ha ha...
Shinkurou: I definitely can't tell them I just chose the one that looked like she was about to attack me.
Tamaki: But that really is amazing, Usui-kun.
Tamaki: You really do look like a girl.
Shinkurou: What are you talking about?
Shinkurou: Usui-chan IS a gir-
Koto: Young master.
Shinkurou: You're a boy!!?
Usui: The custom of my family...
Usui: is to dress up like a girl while we are young to ward off misfortune.
Shinkurou: But you're so cute...
Tamaki: He really is a boy.
Tamaki: I made sure to check back there.
Shinkurou: Don't check that kind of thing!!
Shinkurou: So I guess I should...
Shinkurou: call you Usui-"kun".
Text: Hee hee
Usui: If you wish, Shinkurou-sama.
Shinkurou: He looks exactly like a girl.
SFX: Smile smile
Murasaki: What are you blushing about?
Ginko: You aren't...
Ginko: feeling conflicted about something, are you?
Shinkurou: N-no, no!!
Shinkurou: Not at all!!
Murasaki: Are you sure?
Ginko: Are you sure?
Woman: Excuse me.
Usui: is she here?
Usui: She disappeared?
Woman: She suddenly vanished after getting out of the bath.
Yamie: Is this the person you say was looking for David?
SFX: Step forward
Usui: She was a girl...
Usui: just a bit younger than Shinkurou-sama and Ginko-sama...
Usui: and she had a large scarf wrapped around her neck.
Ginko: A large scarf?
Shinkurou: Hey, Murasaki!!
Shinkurou: Could it really have been Kirihiko-chan!?
Shinkurou: But why would she be here?
Ginko: What are you doing!?
Ginko: Head after Murasaki-chan!!
SFX: Pant pant
Shinkurou: Where did Murasaki get off to?
Shinkurou: I have to find Kirihiko-chan, too.
Shinkurou: Come to think of it, Kirihiko-chan is from the <Kirishima> family of the inner thirteen families.
Shinkurou: As Ginko said...
Shinkurou: this place is dangerous for us.
SFX: Jump back
Bottom: To be continued in the November Issue
