Title: Lesson 663 Wounds
Someone: Wait, that's...
Utsuro's body is...
Utsuro: My regeneration ability...
has diminished drastically...
Is there an abnormality in the Altana flowing through my body....?
The Altana reaction in the area
has been cut off.
Utsu: The dragon vein has
It couldn't have been...
Utsu: The Inugami...!!
It's still going...?!!
That wild rampage...
it stopped it all on its own...!!
Shin: We've finally caught you.
your bonus time has run out.
The Dragon Veins have been sealed off from this area.
You can't replenish your immortal energy anymore.
Those countless swords that you broke
brought us here.
Now we've gathered up all that broken steel
and turned it into fangs
that will bite apart your immortality.
We won't break anymore.
Utsu: It would seem the fighting spirit has
been restored in the eyes of these soldiers.
By their nature, dogs and children are not beings to have any concern over.
To think they could change the tide of this battle...
But the dragon
is not dead yet.
SFX: MEKI MEKI
Utsu: The dragon is still within me.
Utsu: Even without the Dragon Veins, I still have Altana remaining inside my body.
Utsu: It it plain to see that before that supply runs out,
he will run out of strength.
It was quite incredible that a single creature blocked off the Dragon Vein.
But alone, the limit of what he can hope to do is temporarily put a cap on it with his spirit pressure.
Once his power runs dry, the Dragon Veins will once again start to run wild.
those fangs are already
starting to disappear.
Utsu: Or perhaps even before that
will erase them.
Regardless of how,
it will be more than in time to meet them.
Utsu: will bring the end.
SF:X DO KUN (BA DUMP)
SFX: DO KUN (BA DUMP)
SFX: DO KUN
Utsu: This irregularity...
is not only because of the Dragon Veins.
Utsu: This is...!!
Kagu: Have you still not noticed?
You are no longer any kind of dragon.
You are just a tiny poisonous snake.
And also an insane one that has bitten its own tail, spreading poison through its veins.
Kagura: If you want an end so bad, then end on your oooown!!
SFX: POTA POTA
Utsu: Just like one of those good-for-nothings...
an imperfect regeneration.
A poisonous snake...
Is that so...?
Looks like your wound-healing has seen better days.
Gin: You better savor the feeling.
Those wounds were left by the ones the ones that risked their lives to inflict and were killed by you.
I won't let a single scratch
go to waste.
Utsu: ...The fragments of the crystal blade.
When you threw the broken piece of the crystal blade at me back then,
it wasn't to take away my eyesight.
were meant to make use of my regenerative ability so I would absorb them into my body.
Gin: Despite being tiny fragments,
if the crystals are kept inside the body for a prolonged period of time, the Altana will be encroached on and an immortal's regenerative ability will start to go amiss.
And with the Dragon Veins sealed, leaving me unable to replenish it...
As long as the proof that they fought
remains on your body.
We won't let a single one go to waste.
The meaning, thoughts, regret, hope,
everything we fought with,
will be carved into your body.
Insert: With that swing...!!
