what're you gonna do once this battle's over?
Kon: What do you think?
I don't have any skills besides swinging swords around.
There's nothin' I'd wanna do more than back to Edo
to be in the Shinsengumi with you guys.
Yama: With you guys, huh? Not only am I not good with swords, I'm not really good at anything.
But, some way or another, I managed to chase after the backs of you and the Vice Chief this far.
Or... maybe it's because I never had anything,
that I was able to stick with you guys all this time, not ever thinking of anything else.
Yama: I think in that case, being an empty vessel isn't too bad.
I'm no good at using swords, but I had some skill living as the sword of you and the others, Chief.
no matter what happens from here, please keep swinging your sword.
Even if samurais fall to ruin, or swords fall to ruin,
you'll always have
a sword right here.
will be with you.
Kon: I don't
have any skills besides that.
Kon: I've caught you, Utsuro.
You won't be able to count on your regeneration ability inside this smokescreen.
While I'm certainly impressed you're still standing with a sword pierced through your heart,
but I can see it. The Altana leaking out from inside you.
Just you wait. I'll drag that heart of yours out from inside your body
then rip the rest out until it's all dried up.
Kon: I'll make sure you get a good taste...
of our sword!
SFX: DO DO
Utsuro: I see.
You have a point that not only is my regeneration taking longer than usual,
but it hurts quite a bit.
Certainly using this method, even you could possibly kill me.
Utsu: If you destroy my body
faster than it can regenerate,
then if you crush my eyes,
and stab my heart,
then what comes next?
You'd better hurry,
or the parts you've already destroyed will regenerate one by one.
Utsu: I see.
You've quite impressively cut short my patience.
Utsu: Now that was quite good.
SFX: ZA ZA
Utsu: Destroying my body at that pace, maybe you really could kill me.
But unfortunately, for defeating that me you've been fighting,
your bonus time has already run out.
Guys: Vice Chief!! Captain Okita!!
SFX: DOON DOO
A smokescreen ain't gonna be enough!!
Abuto: Load his body full
'a bullets made of the crystals!!
Utsu: Do you think those bullets will actually connect now?
Bullets that simply fly in a straight line
are easier to dodge than a swaying naked blade.
Kamu: how about an idiot that comes flying straight in?
Utsu: As you can see,
Utsu: that is the easiest of all.
SFX: DO GA GA
Kamu: Is that so?
Kamu: Then try to dodge this...
SFX: MEKI MIKIH
Kamu: idiot bullet.
SFX: GA GAH
Umi: If you won't drop dead even if we cut you into kuai strips or a drill yuou full of holes like a beehive,
then I guess we need to blast away every last cell.
it looks like your inferior gene blaster was a failure.
Umi: It's not oveeeeer!!
Erase that aaarm!!
Even if it's just one arm, he can still...
SFX: MEKI MEKI MEKI
Umi: Will that be enough to do it...?!
If I try to fire it again right away, it could backfire.
I've got no other choice...!!
After this, there...
won't be another chance!!!
Your own hand...!!
Utsu: Is that
the end of your trump cards, then?
...I see, well then, everyone,
Bottom: The pronouncement of the end...!!
