[Side text] The Commander of the Urakai - Oumi Nichinaga. Is everything in the palm of this little monster's hand...?
[Title] Chapter 280: Awakening
 Hiura...! Thank goodness...!!
 What a relief... / MUKURI*
* sitting up
 H... Hey! / Is it okay to just be getting up like that!? / AWAWAWA*
 Good... morning... / Eh? / Ah, good morning.
 GOSHI GOSHI*
* rub rub
 Breakfast... time? / No, that's not it...
 GOSHI GOSHI GOSHI*
* rub rub rub
 My arm...
 BATSU* / Yagyou's relief team fixed you up.
 These aren't my clothes... / Yeah... they're like... healing clothes... or something.
 ZUON* / Hey, are you alright!?
 I... apolo... gize... / SAAA* / You!! / It's fine, so go back to bed!!
 Sorry. / In the end, I wasn't paying any attention to my surroundings. / I shouldn't have taken my eyes off you.
 But why did you go after Shichirou? / You were already wounded, / and it's obvious he's strong.
 You could've just left it to me...
 But... / I had to... / keep my word...
 I guess so. / You always try to keep your word, don't you...
 I'm trying hard too. / The people around me, Karasumori, the school, all the students, the town, the townspeople / I intended to protect them all... / but protecting everything is hard.
** T/N: The verb for 'to keep' (as in a promise) and 'to protect' are the same in Japanese
 When push comes to shove / I think it's necessary to choose one over the others, after all.
 In your case, all your promises are to other people, right?
 I've made you promise some things too... / but I think it's better if you choose for yourself what you want to protect.
 Choose... / for myself...?
 Yeah, / You should think about what you want to do, and choose for yourself.
 It's okay if you don't listen to anyone else / not other people's orders nor anything I say.
 After all / I hardly listen to anything anyone else says! / NITSU*
 People like my older brother are always so bossy, after all. / Ahahaha
 Well, there's no need to hurry. / Rest up, for now.
 TAN* / Who're you?
 NU* / How do you do? I'm Sazananmi, head of Yagyou's intelligence squad.
 Is there something you want from me? / Hiura's awake, right?
 We're going to interrogate him.
 What're you talking about? / It's now certain / that he's connected to both the shinyuuchi hunting and the plot to destroy the Urakai.
 Excuse me. / SU* / Wait! His wounds are still...
 Time is short. / The chief asked me to hurry, as well.
 To be honest, we could've done it behind your back / but the chief said it'd become a problem later on / so he told us not to do it that way.
 Sen, don't let anyone get close to this room. / Understood. / Hey!!
 Wait... / The one manipulating Hiura is the Commander of the Urakai.
 With the power he gained from the shinyuuchi hunting, / the Commander intends to destroy the Urakai.
 Use the blank state and calm yourself.
 Wait! / GASHI*
 Listen up... / I'm telling you...
 I know that he himself isn't a bad guy.
 But we / have our lives on the line...!
 What do you intend to do now? / Master
 I can't use Number Three for a while because of the Shinigami. / I'll have to change my plan a little.
 Is that why you cut ties with the Ougi clan?
 Well... / that's not the only reason.
 PATA PATA*
* flap flap
 You look bored. / Not really.
 The elimination of Tsukihisa only brings us halfway.
 My vengeance will only be complete / once I destroy everything he built and erase every last trace of his existence.
 It's just... / This power gained from the Shinyuuchi hunting is immense.
 I kind of wish... / there were still an opponent who could put up a fight for a while longer.
 The person behind it all... is the Commander!? / ZAWAZAWA*
 That's right. / Yumeji-san was killed right before my eyes by one of the Commander's subordinates.
 Your speech lacks manners / bringing the Commander's name into it like that... / How rude... / Why is he the only one unharmed, anyway...?
 It's fine / if you don't believe my report.
 Well, those who know...
 have probably more or less guessed the truth...
 But though I'm going to all this trouble to hint as how to stay alive, if you want to die in vain / you're free to do so.
 Watch your tone, brat!!
 Now, now. / There're only eight of us left. / This is no time for infighting.
 We don't have time to renew our numbers. / The task of settling this incident and rebuilding the Urakai falls to us.
 Aren't we already scattered? / With Yumeji-dono gone, who'll unite us?
 Well, if we do it by rank...
 It'd be Kidouin-dono.
 BOSO* / No... / I think that...
 Ah, / so annoying!!
 That's one / out.
[1 inset] Meeting of the Twelve / Former Third Member / Tatsuki
 Meian, / why don't you do it / You've been raring to go at it from the start / I'll excuse myself now.
 Wait! / This is irresponsible!! / ZA* / I just don't want to hang out with you, that's all.
 Show off as much as you like, boys. / Later <3
 ZAWA ZAWA ZAWA* / Such a selfish... / What kind of person is she / Anyway, to get things back on topic...
 It's just seven of us now. / FUU* / Fewer people will be easier to bring to consensus.
 Well then, as Tatsuki-dono said... / Would it be acceptable for me to lead us, for the time being?
 Well, it would be appropriate... / But the laboratory Meian-dono was in charge of advising has already been destroyed. / We don't know how many men he has left that he can use...
 So there are no objections? / BIKU*
 Very well, I will make the final decisions for us all. / With the future of the Urakai on the line / I will lead with all my strength.
[Inset] Meeting of the Twelve / Fourth Member / Meian
 Meian is surprisingly diehard, so he won't be able to take the necessary measures. / I don't know how he'll fail, but I guess it's better than just plodding along...
 This is sudden, but...
 I'm old. / I want an aide who can move quickly.
 Sumimura-kun. / Can I entrust you with this special duty? / ZAWA*
 Special duty!? / You're giving him more authority!? / ZAWAZAWAZAWA*
 I'll reconsider if there's anyone else who particularly wants to do it instead.
 Well then, it's fine, isn't it? / HISO HISO* / After all, the special duty just entails things like running errands.
 What do you think, Sumimura-kun? / It'll become much easier for you to act now.
 In order to get closer to the truth without considering the dangers... / I'd like to borrow the strength of a courageous youth.
 If I'm / satisfactory
[Inset] Masamori, his status elevated, initiates the counterattack on the Commander!
