PLEASE GIVE DUE CREDITS!! THANKS!!
[Sounds of horses galloping can be heard]
What is that?
What is that sound?
[An elf is immediately pierced by a spearlike weapon]
Side note: The first lines of the Black Lord's army approach --- the clash is imminent!!
DriftersChapter 21 - Chaos Diver
[T.N.: a song by the Japanese rock band, The Back Horn.]
Splash: Jeanne d'Arc...
Until this world

Jeanne (grinning): There they are! There they are!
I can feel their stench!
The stench of Drifters!!
[Jeanne sets everything on fire]
Jeanne: Come to me, my dear Drifters!!
Let me burn you to ashes!!
[The fire spreads]
Voice: You use a fancy trick.
Is it sorcery?
Toyohisa: Do all of you use those kinds of
cute little tricks?
Jeanne: And there he is!!
[The elves are running desperately for a safe haven]
Nobunaga: Shara, gather the men.
Don't forget the bows.
Make sure women and children are safe in the woods.
Shara: Yes, sir!
Nobunaga: I will crush them horseriders.
Yoichi: You sure you can handle this?
Nobunaga: You have no means to know,
but were there a contest of cavalry crushing,
I would be the best in the whole universe.[T.N. A slight reference to the famous battle of Nagashino, where Nobunaga defeated the cavalry of the Takeda clan, thought to be invincible.]
Yoichi: In this case, I leave them to you.
Looks like I have an appointment
with that gentleman.
[Gilles de Rais, a man in chains and gauntlets and wielding a spear, just stares]
Jeanne (grinning): Gilles de Rais, kill that shemale!!
I will burn this Drifter to cinders!!
Gilles de Rais: Jeanne.
[Gilles poises himself and launches his attack]
[A whole stone wall is sliced apart]
Yoichi: Didn't expect you to slice the stone wall of this castle.
What a strength!
You look like Musashibou! [T.N.: Musashibou Benkei, a warrior monk who served Minamoto no Yoshitsune. Famous by his sheer strength.]
The puny obstacle for the world annihilation plans laid by the Black Lord!!
All Drifters will be roasted to death!!
Toyohisa: So, you are one of those guys...
How did that woman in glasses call you?
Was it "Offscourings"? Or was it "TRASH" ?
She said you were a bunch of crazy idiots.
But tell me.
Are you a woman?Or are you actually a man?
[Jeanne bursts in a fit of rage]
[Jeanne attacks mercilessly with her flames]
Jeanne: You are nimble, singe jaune!
[T.N.: "yellow monkey", in French.]But you've got nowhere to run now!
What are you going to do?!
Jeanne: WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO!?
YOU ARE THE TRASH HERE!!
[Suddenly, two walls rise behind Toyohisa and block the flames]
[Olmine jumps from behind Toyohisa and throws a piece of paper, which touches the ground and makes a wall rise in front of them]
[The wall protects them from Jeanne's flames]
Olmine: I'm from the Octobrist Organization...!!
And our duty is...
to protect the Drifters!!
Side note: They can make fun of her breasts, but they can't make fun of her magic!!TO BE CONTINUED

- Is it just me, or there is some resemblance with Fate/Stay Night in this chapter? :P Jeanne being Ilya, Gilles being Berserker and Yoichi being... well, Archer? :P
- And Olmine's magic reminds me of Fullmetal Alchemist/Hagaren... :P
- Anyway, now the battle begins. Let's see how the fights will unfold. How will Toyohisa fight against Jeanne? How will Yoichi handle Gilles? And how will Nobunaga handle the cavalry without firearms? Stay tuned!
