Okay, now we're on to volume 5. Lots of stuff happens in this one. And as you can see by the table of contents, this is the last fucking huge chapter. With the possible exception of chapter 22, which should be the final chapter but it hasn't come out in Haruta yet. But all the other chapters are 32-48 pages long, so they should be less strenuous than this. And I've read them all and I think they are.

Bundles of Wood and Firearms
Narration: The end of October 1315 A.D.
The Alps. St. Gotthard Pass.
The conflict between the barrier established by the ruling Hapsburgs, "The Wolf's Maw",
and the rebels of the Eternal Alliance of the Three Forest Cantons that are trying to recapture it
was finally reaching its finale.

Narration: With the Eternal Alliance on the South side divided and forced into a war of attrition, in order to improve their position,

Narration: But at the same time, the members of the Eternal Alliance outside the territory launched an attack on the South Gate.
Using new weapons, they first felled the drawbridge.
Then, of the two layers of grating
they opened a hole in the outer grate.
Narration: The barrier dropped the floor
in an attempt to halt the rebelling warriors
but the warriors' tenacity paid off
and they broke through the second grate as well.
The barrier had finally been breached.
The only remaining defense in the South Gate
was the water chamber under the dropped floor.
Now, in order to make use of this opening and attack the inside of the barrier, the rebel warriors still needed to cross this water chamber.
The next focal point of this battle
will be at this narrow water chamber.
Now, finally, the rebels' blade of revenge
was closing in
on their sworn enemy, the barrier Magistrate, Wolfram.
Guy: A hole in the South Gate?!
Narration: Inside the North Gate's grate
Guys: The South Gate was broken?!
What in the world is going on?!
Did the allies on the South Side set something up?!
The soldiers are in the way, I can't see.
Narration: Barrier South Gate
Soldiers: Enemy attack!
There is an an insurgent attack on the South Gate as well!
and drive them back!
SFX: DOSU DOSU DOSU DOSU
Suicide corps, go!
Guy: They're carrying bundles of wood?!
Are they trying to fill up the water chamber?!
Don't let them get close!
Turn them to ashes with Greek Fire!
These brave heroes are dying.
Wolf: What are they trying to do,
the water chamber with corpses?!
Wolf: This is no laughing matter.
stop the insurgents from jumping in!
Wolf: What are you just standing around watching for?!
Shoot them, quickly!
Guy: Out of the way,
I'll do it!

Guys: Long, long ago, the armies of Rome
used their command of civil engineering technology
to win wars.
It's said that they heaped earth onto towering castle walls
As we are now, we don't have the time for that
we will pile up bundles of wood and corpses
to create our footholds.
Leader: Shield group,
Guys: Don't you bastards
dare let any more into the gate!
Guy: Dense formation!
SFX: GAH SHIIH
What is that?!
Guy: The Greek Fire...
Guy: So leather soaked in vinegar and piss really does block Greek Fire.
Thank goodness the stories were true.
Guy: All right!
We got there!
Up against the grate!
This is bad.
Fire and don't stop!
SFX: DA DA DA DA
SFX: DO DO DO DO DO
Guy: Return fire!
SFX: DA DA DA DAN
Guys: Go in!

Guy: I'm sorry.
I'm so sorry, everyone.
Guys: You bastards.

SFX: GUWAAA GAKIH
Keep going, don't stop!
Wolf: Block them!
Guy: Buy time
for the ones behind us!
Come get us,
you goddamn dogs!
There's no end to them.
Bruk: The enemy is growing because you've been dawdling
you useless fools.
Wolf: I'm sorry it's been so busy,
I have one more request.
Bruk: Yes, sir.
At your service.
Guys: Everyone, go at him together!
SFX: DO GO BA KIH
Guys: This guy is
the gatekeeper knight, huh?
Like hell you're going to push us back!
We finally got our opening.
We exchanged the lives of our comrades to open a path.
We can't relinquish it.
Bruk: I see.
As the enemy increases when you dawdle
they need to be cleaned up quickly.
Guy: Surround him!
what insolent tactics.
Bruk: There really is
no end to them.
Bruk: Lord Wolfram.
It seems that preserving the South Gate will be somewhat difficult.
Where is Lord Wolfram?!
Where is the Lord Magistrate!
Guy: Could it be he...
Guys: Hey, hey, open up!
SFX: DON DON
SFX: GASHI GASHI
Guys: Help us, Lord Magistrate!
as it has come to this, we have no choice but to wipe them out.
one of our allies from the North Side, isn't it?
You mean the Allies within the territory?!
Get a hold of yourself!
SFX: PAN PAN
Keep moving up here!
The insurgents have long-handled spear,s too.....
Bruk: The North Gate?!
Guys: Kill hiiim!
Bruk: Do not mock me, you weaklings!
SFX: GU RA RA RA
Why couldn't you just die?!
Bruk: Hurry and
SFX: ZAH ZAH ZAH ZA
Walter: Grab him!
Guy: That's it!
Keep him held!
Guys: You rampaging bear,
SFX: ZAKU ZAKU
Guys: Finish hiiim!
Guys: Hoist it up!
Help us out!
Raise the grate!
What're you doing at a place like that?!
Guy: Carry stones from outside the caslte!
The bigger the better!
Walk: We're glad you made it.
I hope you appreciate all this.
Hilde: Hey, Walter.
What about Kurt?
Guy: It's no good.
But thanks to him, we defeated the Knight of the Gate.
We couldn't be happier
that we had such a hero inside the territory.
please give us our orders.
Wlater: Break down that door and head through it.
We're going to capture Wolfram
and execute him.
Wolf: Well, anyhow
I managed to escape safely
again thanks to Brukto's devotion.
My, oh my.
The garden for exposing covert travelers is now jammed full of covert travelers.
they have now all gathered in one place
we can round them all up at once.
Guy: Shield group!
SFX: ZU GO GON
Guy: What the hell's that?!
just fry 'em anyway!
Guys: Yes, sir!
Wolf: Good gracious.
Yet more odd tactics......
Are you all right?!
Walter: Lugano Leader.
Leader: Ooh, Walter
I'm so glad you're all right!
I'll be using this to destroy the door.
Walter, you lead the allies to raid the inside.
Walt: What is that?!
Leader: A new weapon.
I'm leaving the rest to you, Walter.
Make sure you take Wolfram's head.
Leader: Light it!
[That seemed completely unnecessary.]
Walter: Head iiin!
Are we going to get stopped at an entrance like this?!
Hilde: All right!
Hilde: Don't let your guard down!
Past here, there'll be enemies waiting to ambush us all over!
Put your shield in front of you.
Let's keep the damage from when we meet them to the minimum.
Guy: Ooh, this is an army all right.
We've got our choice of weapons.
we'll kill them
with their own weapons.
Guy: Elaborate winch tools.
We can pull tightly-drawn bows with these easily.
He really is Wilhelm Tell's son.
let's move forward.
Guy: It's over, Lord Magistrate!
Before everyone's killed!
Wolf: I see.
that is one possible tactic.
Please, get up here
and let's discuss it.
see all those people over there?
Wolf: Please observe the threatening attitude of the insurgents.
If we were to do such a thing as surrender now
we could not possible hope for anyone to live.
The East building has fallen to the hands of the insurgents.
The West building is still out castle.
Bar all passages.
Please focus on guarding the West building.
All those that complain
will be seen as traitors
and will be executed upon discovery.
Keep that in mind.
