Title: Lesson 700
Gin: Hm. He really brought out my handsome-dude side!
Shin: C'mon, this looks nothing like you! He even has a racket!! They made him way tooooo cool!!!
Middle Insert: 'Shin Prince of Tennis' author Konomi Takeshi-sensei has drawn... Gin-saaaaan?!
Starburst: Win special crossover goods featuring this artwork!! Check the next page!!
Insert: After traveling around the universe, Kagura reached a certain place...
Guy: He's certainly not dead, this one.
But nor is he alive.
He exists in between the two.
Over the course of a fierce battle, this fellow was unable to maintain his existence in this world.
It seems to me that he sealed himself in here in order to keep his body connected to this world.
Though I cannot say I know when those wounds will heal.
It's honestly my first time ever seeing an inugami in this state.
But an inugami
is a keeper of the Dragon Veins that act as the source of a planet's life.
Guy: As long as a planet's life has not run dry, this fellow may very well return as that keeper.
So perhaps it would be best to simply let him rest quietly for now.
Your friend fought hard.
Maybe the best thing you can do is defend the planet he fought so hard to protect in his place?
It would be quite the pity
if this fellow's home is gone when he wakes up, wouldn't you say?
What're you waiting for?! C'mon, this way!
Did Gintoki and the other already make their way to the enemy mother ship?!
We keep cutting these enemies down, but there's no end to them!
Guys: They keep seeping up out of the cracks one after another!
And in the meantime, they're still constantly sucking up the Earth's Altana!
Kon: Keep pressing forward! Don't stop for anything!
Put all your focus on moving forward!
even without you,
I promise we will protect this place.
Nobume: What're you doing? Did you not hear the orders from your chief?
SFX: ZA ZAH
Nobume: Keep moving.
I'll take take care of things here.
I do not plan on allowing the police force that I took over form Isaburou
to end here.
If the director of police is going to personally hold off the enemy, then I don't think this director of police is going to last too long either.
So you'll have to excuse me, Chief.
SFX: KACHIH (CLICK)
Zaki: We'll be ignoring
both the chief and director's orders.
Zaki: It looks like we've got this whole business in front of us now.
You all, go right ahead.
We'll be behind you later. That's a promise.
And she'll be with us.
This time, both the Chief and the Director are going to stay live.
Someone: Just outright disregarding a superior's orders?
I can't believe this organization...
All right, we're all going back together.
And when we do, I'm slashing your salaries.
Guys: ---We promise
we'll protect the home for you to return to.
Utsuro: It's over.
Guy: Disciples of Shouyou,
you cannot stop the revival of Utsuro.
You cannot save Shouyou.
is decided by Utsuro.
It is fate.
SFX: DOU ZAZAA
SFX: GIIN GAKIIN GIIN GAIN
Guy: Did you see it?
The Utsuro inside me?
SFX: DOH ZAN
Guy: Then you should understand.
The likes of you cannot defeat me.
Guys: Utsuro fell to ruin by your hands once before.
But the elements of him had even before then
lived on inside us who inherited his blood.
And they guided us here.
Do you understand?
We are a part of Utsuro.
The revival of Utsuro,
the destruction of you that resist him,
all of it was established by Utsuro.
It is your inescapable
SFX: GA KII
Guy: I see.
Guy: And just what do you tryin' to do exactly?
Taka: Is me, somebody who nobody'd miss if they died, standing here like this
all thanks to Utsuro's guidance, too?
Taka: I don't think so.
I... we aren't here because of anyone.
We're standing here by our own wills.
Taka: What's flowing through this nearly-rotted body
in order to stamp out
every last one of you
ain't Utsuro's immortal blood.
Taka: It's the steel teachings of Shouka Sonjuku
left behind by our master and senior disciple
to keep getting up no matter how many times we fall.
We've clashed with and duked it out with all sorts of people and ended up pretty bent and twisted along the way,
Taka: but that steel is unmistakably still here,
never rusting, never bending.
That blade is here in our souls.
SFX: DO DOOON
Katsu: We're taking this back.
And our master, too.
Someone: Is this destiny as well?
Looks like this is as far as we're gonna be able to escort ya!
SFX: GAKIIIN GIIIN
Hiji: Leave Katsura to us.
Catching idiot Patriots like him is our job.
Kon: Your guy is close... get goin'.
Get too careless and he's gonna slip away from you again!
Oki: You get it, right? This is the last time in this life that we're gonna help you guys.
The next time we meet...
Guys: ...Yeah. We'll make sure to hurl abuse at you
along with that guy.
So please let me say this for the last time in this life,
Guys: thank you.
Gin: This guy...
These guys are really...
Guy: So you've accepted Utsuro's blood,
yet you resist it as well?
Actually it seems that that blood, too, is starting to wilt.
Just how long will that half-connected neck hold out?
SFX: DO N
Just how the hell many Senseis do we need to cut down?
Guys: We are immortals that have undertaken an ample amount of Utsuro's blood.
What's more, we are able to draw power from Utsuro's blood.
Killing us is no simple task.
Taka: Can you see it?
We'll use the core that's on the verge of going berserk thanks to them.
They may regenerate no matter how much damage they take, but the high energy levels in there can even make that immortal blood go up in smoke.
Meaning if we use that Altana, we can wipe them out along with that blood.
What we need to go for is a level where we can get close to the core.
We'll have to bring them there with us, but...
we have immortals on our side, too.
Taka: Use me.
I dunno how long I'll be able to hold out, but I can at least act as a shield.
Taka: Looks like it might've been worth it, getting this screwed up body.
Guys: Have they gone mad?!
Or do they actually think they can escape...?
SFX: DO DOH
SFX: GO GO GO GO GO
Guy: It's useless.
The Utsuro within us cannot be extinguished with such things.
Guy: With that dried up blood of yours,
you cannot keep up with our regeneration.
SFX: DO DO
Guy: We'll drain all of that blood
and see that you rot away completely.
Taka: I see.
Then I guess that means...
it's a race to see whose blood runs dry first.
Your Utsuro blood, or my Shouyou blood?
Guys: What's happening?!!
Did they have to show up now?!!
Guys: Guh, let go...!!
SFX: MEKI MEKI
Taka: Just a little more.
Taka: Just a little more should do it.
Lend me your strength.
Guy: You bastard.
You intend to wipe yourself out along with us?!
SFX: MEKI MEKI
Guy: Death-dodging bastard!
I'll gouge out your heart and spill out the rest of that blood first!!
SFX: DO SHI
Taka: Take it.
But your heart will get skewered, too.
Taka: I didn't plan on
using all the rest of this blood at a place like this, but...
Taka: if this will get us there,
then it's not so bad.
I wonder if the thing that made me start thinking in this way that's so unlike me
was your blood?
not so bad, either.
You couldn't take your comrade sacrificing himself,
so you actually let your chance to defeat us
You will not have another such a chance.
There will not
be another miracle for you.
Now rot away in a pit of despair!
-CHAAAAAAAAN!! [The "san" and "chan" are next to each other under the "GIN"]
Gin: You don't need to yell,
I can hear ya.
I always could.
Guy: Y-You bastaaaaard!!
SFX: GO GO GO GO GO
Bottom: ...Lesson 700
Insert: The other member of the Yorozuya has spilled out---!!
