Kämpfer Chapter 26
Alive... You mean a messenger like you!?
Well, yeah... It might have fallen asleep midway though.
Because he's like a gramps that passed his 80s.
It's a deep breath. // Guess he's confused because he gets to talk after a long while.
Ah... Ah... Eh... // Ah....
Ah... Where am I...?
Skip the details.
Do you know who I am?
Guess you weren't sleeping just because you weren't speaking.
Okay, tell us. Are you a Moderator?
Then what? The fist messenger?
Something like that.
I won't let you get away with telling us you don't know for what purpose
you're having us transform.
To let you fight...
Why do we have to fight? For what purpose? // It's not an imminent invasion of the world, is it?
I wonder how it feels to get your head or torso removed.
I'll talk. // I'll talk!
If you don't fight, the moderator will be in trouble. I think.
What role have that moderator?
To let the Kämpfers fight.
....Ehm, I get what you're after. // About why they fight, right
The moderator... how should I say...
isn't a humans from this world.
This is about a different world far, far away---
---There two powers are fighting a never ending battle.
Both sides were mourning about the great losses.
Thus a neutral existence, the moderator was created.
The moderator then proposed a way for their twist to be settled---
And that was the duel between representatives.
The rules are simple. The one who wins the duel, also will be declared the winner of that world. // And to ensure fairness, it was decided that the representatives are not of that world.
That's why the moderator looked for inhabitants of a different world--- namely high schoolers of the earth. Splitting them up into red and blue, he lets them fight by having them transform.
Basically, we're fighting out a twist for someone else?
Just doing things as he pleases. // Aren't we totally unrelated?
(Ouch...) Not quite. Only those chosen by the moderator can become Kämpfer.
(Factors like age and other...)
It's quite troubling that he's going on his own. // Actually, because of that I ended up with a female appearance.
About that. You see, in their world it was the women's job to fight. The men just protect the house.
....He fell asleep.
Let's leave it at that for now.
You haven't eaten yet, right Senou-kun.
Yeah, I'm quite hungry.
I'll borrow your kitchen.
Okay, it's done.
The curry Mikoto made turned into Udon...!
What do you think about that story earlier?
We can't... really brush it aside as a joke. // Guess it's the truth?
I don't think so... // Kaede didn't have a part in it.
She must be involved. Burnt Alive Lion is hers after all.
Whenever we transform into Kämpfer, the entrails animals are always by our side.
Hey, hey. Don't tell me you're saying Sakura-san is a Kämpfer.
More like she's the moderator.
There's no doubt that Kaede is involved. // Unexpectedly a story thought up in the past might have taken shape.
I mean, Kaede might be the origin of our fighting.
Wha-- // There's no way that THE righteous Sakura-san would be that...!!
Take some other girl for your imagination, not Kaede.
Stop your jokes.
I feel sorry for Mishima-san or Kondou-san...
And me too...
NA TSU RU // you're here, right.
I'll just come in when you're not saying anything!
...Why is the President in your house!!
(How did she get in this time?)
That's what I should be saying!!
I'm your childhood friend, so it's okay! That's common sense!
I came to make seafood curry for you!
Y- // Yes!!
Huh? You let me in when you already had the President here. // Is that harassment?
You just let in yourself...!
You too, Prez. What's your goal?
Why don't you sit down?
...This is the reason I came here.
....An Entrails Animal?
...That's the reason why we are fighting?
Seems so. Though I think it's not the whole truth...
Mhm, no change.
By the way, Natsuru, // Did you ask the Prez about Ueda-chan?
(Ah, not yet...)
Ueda Makie---- The girl in the miss contest, right.
Mikoto said she was looking similar to the Kämpfer who attacked us at Sakura-san's house...
(Yep // Yep)
And the library girl, Nakao Sayaka too...
(Eh? I didn't hear anything about that!!)
I don't know how many there are in total, but they started showing their faces.
A Kämpfer draws out another Kämpfer. Isn't that the reason?
It's a bit too fast for that. There ought to be a different reason...
I'll go play with Ueda-chan tomorrow.
Oh, you're cunning.
I plan to get a lot of info.
Because Natsuru is useless.
Hey, Natsuru. Why don't you see Ueda-chan tomorrow too?
Why even me... Isn't that too unnatural?
....Maybe I should go.
Y- You will?
I'm not cooperating. It would just surprise Ueda-san, so I'll just watch from the shadows.
You don't really need to...
Then can I came to his house tomorrow to make food in your stead?
Go with me, Prez!
Ah, did you wait long?
No. Not that long...
It's.. our first time alone together.. so I'm uneasy..
But... Let's give our best together...!
O- Okay... ? ?
Let's go to the second floor.
What are we here for again?
Let's see. // They're refilling the asset of our school library.
(Ehm, the dictionary row was...)
For that we'll sort out and order stuff.
I wonder if I'll get anything to do...
I'm sorry. // Are you hurt?
No, it was nothing.
It would be a disaster if by chance anything had happened to you.
You, Senou Natsuru-san are famous after all.
Ah, I haven't told you my name yet. // I'm Yamakawa Ryouka.
A second-year at Seitesu Academy.
I'm also a Kämpfer.
