Title: Lesson 647
Beyond the Dream
Author: Sorachi Hideaki
Someone: Staff officer-dono,
please come in.
Takechi: Shoukaku-dono!! What is the situation over there?
Here, there's still no one...
Shou: We found yer general.
Shou: We found him,
Taka: Is that you, Takechi?
Taka: Both you and I lived, it looks like, eh? I guess it's true what they say about the worse a guy you are the longer you live...
Take: I always believed you would survive! How injured are you...?!
Taka: Hearing you worrying about me is just gonna get me depressed.
No problems here. More importantly, I need you to take care of Matako.
She's not like you or me. She's not a villain at heart, so she can't rely in the devil's luck.
Regardless of the result, the Kiheitai was born because of her.
If something were to happen to her... Bansai would never let me hear the end of it.
Taka: There's no time. Go on ahead of us.
I'm counting on you.
Shou: Takasugi, you...
Taka: There's no need to tell them.
Or any need for them to know at all.
go dropping dead just yet.
I need to stand up.
I have to keep on being
the Takasugi Shinsuke they believed in.
Shou: There's no need to tell them?
Don't tell them that the man
that changed battlefields just by standing there
just barely escaped death and can't even stand up anymore?
No need for them to know?
Know that the man that still nevertheless is trying to stand up
is really no hero,
but just an ordinary human like the rest of them?
Shou: You kept standing back up as heroes
for your comrades that believed in those heroes.
You had to keep standing up.
you know better than anyone
are no real heroes.
That the idea of such things
is nothing more than an illusion.
Shou: And that someday,
that dream must be awakened from.
everyone besides you has woken up long ago.
Shou: The reason your comrades followed you
was not because of some illusion called a "hero".
Shou: It was because despite being just an ordinary human,
you kept standing in front of them in dramatic fashion
as just Takasugi Shinsuke.
Shou: You don't
need heroes anymore.
Utsuro: The fire
has started to fade.
It would seem that they blundered.
But there is nothing to worry about.
Utsuro: That little fire of yours will not go to waste.
My flame that will swallow everything still burns.
