[Side text] With Souji slashed and Karasumori appearing, Yoshimori's power explodes!
 The scale and strength of this are incomparable to those of the kekkai required to stop that huge gear... / Even though that kid did this, this unnatural power...
 its source / is probably Karasumori.
 On top of that--
 It's growing, little by little... / He doesn't have the power under control...!
 It's running amok!
[Inset] This power - the greatest yet seen, its source unknown, and uncontrollable---
[Title] Chapter 277: White Zekkai
 It's alright, / I was inside something just like this when we went to Kokubourou. / This thing that looks like a white zekkai doesn't harm anyone but enemies, so it's not that dangerous.
 You... / sure...?
 Yeah. After all, it appeared fundamentally out of a desire to protect. / Nevertheless, I think Yoshimori is in a higher state of consciousness right now.
 It might take a lot, but we should be able to wake him and return him to normal, / but it has to be done carefully.
 GUTSU* / Yeah.
 ZU... / BOTA* / Wha- / You idiot!! / Don't move!!
* rise / drip
 Are you stupid!? / If you move with those wounds... / You'll die!
 Yeah... / Everything's alright. / Right now, / Yoshimori's protecting us.
 Huh? / Wait a minute, something's not right.
 The circumstances for activation are different / from that time in Kokubourou...
 Yoshimori. / Wake up. / Release this kekkai.
 That time in Kokubourou it was me, / this time it's Hiura. / Yoshimori's the kind of guy who's extremely afraid of humans other than himself getting hurt, / so the conditions for him to come unhinged are present,
 but the timing is different.
 Yoshimori! / Wake up!!
 In my case it was just before I was going to be wounded, / for Hiura it was just afterwards
 To go out of control after he was wounded... / That's different from a desire to protect, isn't it?
 GASHI* / Yoshi...
 Come back to us, Yoshimori...!
 It vanished!
 Ah / thank goodness. / He's back to normal...
 Eh? / DOCHATSU*
 Yes. / That's correct, we're currently at the Sumimura residence.
 In short, / the attackers were successfully repelled, / and then were finished off by Ougi Shichirou, who suddenly appeared.
 Ah, and Shuu found a kid who seems to be one of their group, / but he appears to have been brainwashed / so it's unclear whether he'll be able to give us any leads.
 The Yukimuras and the head of the Sumimuras, and anyone else who can still move, / are taking care of the school. / Shichirou really made a mess of it.
 Also, Hiura got caught up in it and got a serious wound from Shichirou... / Makio-san arranged for a rescue squad and so treatment was administered right away, / but he's still in a precarious state.
 He doesn't have any serious injuries / but he's so depressed about Hiura / that I can't bear to look at him, it's dangerous to my emotional health.
 Uh... Yoshimori made that white zekkai-looking thing from that time in Kokubourou again. / On a much bigger scale, though.
 And so I finally realized / just what it is. / It's... / not something that appears out of a desire to protect.
 This is a little rude of me to say, but... / it's in a completely different dimension from a zekkai... / though their roots are similar.
 He's wilful, / he always has been.
 And so what that is / is his "perfect world"...
 Whatever he doesn't like, / people, things, circumstances, / it's a world which rejects them all.
 That guy...
 if he doesn't like it, even the dead won't die, but come back to life...!
 I'm... kind of scared.
 That's something you could call / the power of a god... / isn't it?
 Please, / come quickly.
 Chief...!! / I'll hurry over.
[3 Kanji] Entry prohibited
 I'll give you further instructions once I check on the situation. / TATSU* / Standby here for orders. / Roger.
 And Hiura-kun...? / Yeah... / It's still unclear whether he'll make it.
 Ah, Chief. / After I rest a little more / I'll be assisting with the treatment as well...
 Oh? Chief, you're wounded too. / Shall we treat you? / I'm fine. Don't strain yourself.
 What about Yoshimori?
 I'm / fine.
 HYO* / Ah- / Ah!
 Ah, Sen. / There you are. / Chief! / A moment, please...
 What is it? / What're we gonna do? At the kitchen door... / Well, um, / he actually asked for Yoshimori, but...
 Again, what is it? / This is bad! / Ou.. / Ougi Shichirou is...
 Ougi Shichirou is what?
 Chief, / why aren't you stopping him!? / Bad, this is bad! / ZATSU ZATSU*
* shff shff
[Inset] Continues in issue 45.
