[Sidebar] News of the attack on Arashizaki Temple reaches the Urakai Central HQ---
[Title] Chapter 310: Attack on Central Headquarters
 Sorry for gathering you so early
[4 inset] Supreme Council of the Urakai / The Group of Twelve
 Well then... / Let's begin
 Meian-dono... / We don't appear to have a quorum
 About three days ago, I received... / a letter from Number Six, Shiromi-dono, conveying his intent to resign and his membership token
 How irresponsible! / ZAWA* / It couldn't be... Kidouin-dono, as well...?
 I managed to convince Kidouin-dono not to leave, and he withdrew his resignation... / But he refused to come to the meetings
 I don't think he intends to come today, either
 ZAWA* / So we're down to 5... / To think! The main house of the Ougi clan was attacked last night! / The Central Headquarters is next... / ZAWA* / We haven't a moment to spare...
* murmur / murmur
[Sidebar] The strength that the Group of Twelve has shown since ancient times is flickering out...
 Quiet, please
 To put it briefly, many have been destroyed, and now the Central Headquarters is the Urakai's last fortress... / and of the 12 leaders, only 5 of us remain who can participate
 If we pillars fail to function, and this place falls... / The Urakai will die
 We won't die off... / so easily...
 The Commander is a relic of the past... / We are the present...
 And fighting is our specialty / Isn't that right, everyone?
 I'd like to evaluate our war potential today / I'm sure most of you are already aware, but... / I'd like to have Sumimura-kun, who was assigned to surveillance, to report on the situation at the Ougi clan main house last night
 We're under attack
 PIKI PIKI KI* / Maybe I should put a little spin to 'em
 Eat this
 Impossible... / It hasn't been even a few hours since the Ougi clan main house was attacked!! / ZA* / The kekkai I erected around the Central Headquarters are taking fire
 It's only the kekkai around the lower level, but a few have already been destroyed!
 I've gotta get through a few more or it's all for nothing, eh? / These are unexpectedly sturdy
 Hey, hey... / I haven't cleared up the kekkai yet
 Men are appearing in the sky... / This is insane... / From their appearance, they seem like Ougi's men, no?
 It appears the time has come
 Well... / This is nothing to flinch at / We've already deployed combatants to fortify our defenses around the lower and middle levels
 I'd like to leave the defense of this upper level to you all / if that's alright
 So it's our turn at last / ZATSU* / I suppose there's no choice at this point / Fufu... / We're the cornerstones of the Urakai now, after all
 Is this any time to be fronting like some last boss...?
 Meian-san, where are you going!?
 What...? / I'm off to pull out one last trick I held in reserve
 ZA* / Wait-
 The boss is looking impatient / (Handwritten) Yeah / If he does this, my attacks're gonna hit our men, too...
 Kiddo... / Release the kekkai / What!? / We can't attack like this
 People can come and go / If you want to fight, please do it outside the kekkai
 Don't you dare give me orders
 The principle behind my spells is to act in concert with the Dragon's Pulse in the land, and use that power / They're meaningless if I cut myself off from the land!
[1 inset] Group of Twelve, Number Twelve / Juuhou**
** T/N: Lit. "Spell Treasure"
 Now, now / Juuhou-san... / GUNYA GUNYA* / It's not as though these kekkai will last long anyway
* wriggle wriggle
 If they're destroyed, I can just erect them again / Hmph... / Your worth lies in the speed of your techniques, after all
 With your powers, you can't even prepare a proper army, can you / Once your kekkai are broken, why don't you just quietly go guard the treasure room or something? / BITSU*
 You're already aware / of the Commander's powers, aren't you? / It's important to quarantine ourselves from it in order not to be taken in by it
 And how, exactly, is that a fight?
 This broad-range attack... / means the enemy is underestimating us. This is our best chance
 There... / FU* / This should be fine
 Now then, let's spin this sucker... / GYURU...*
 And now, to pick something to aim at... / so it doesn't hit anything unnecessary---
 SU* / Hm, another one's been destroyed / It's just a matter of time for this place, as well
 I should make ready
 KURU* / JUKU...
* fwish / vrmm
 BO (x many)* / I'll begin my attack at the moment the kekkai here falls
 (Handwritten) Fufu... / I guess we can leave the big guns to Juuhou-dono after all
 Just you watch
 BO (x many)*
 From the nearest Dragon Pit--
 It's been repelled...
 Hmph... / If it's on this piece of land, I can fire as many energy pillars as I like / YURA* / I'm just getting started...
 ZA* / Meian-sama!
 Can... we release that thing? / Yes, of course!
 DOKUN* / It's matured quite enough. It's a work we can be proud of
[4 inset] Meian's secret weapon! What lies within this sinister ball of flesh!?
