Temple of the Ancient Times Sacred Grounds,
This prediction of Himiko has,
100% chance of become reality.
Base yourself on this,
Please have a look.
Zeami, what is this...?
Made using a brand new technology,
This picture is the result given from the conversion of Himiko’s brain waves during her prediction this morning.
What... Did you say!?
Children are getting attacked by the revengeful spirit!!
Tomorrow, the revengeful ghost of Kishino Homaro, a farmer from the Nara Period will appear in the Fukuoka Prefecture.
So they’re still appearing, huh!!!
I don’t even need to say it but, revengeful ghosts must not cross ways with normal humans,
If we were to leave it alone, it could kill as much humans as it wants, be it several hundred or several thousands!!!
Hell if I care!!
Even if it’s not right away, let’s go and do it, Sarutahiko,
Only you and I can protect the people from revengeful ghosts!!!
I’m absolutely not going,
Go by yourself, fool!!
Fukuoka - 4:00 P.M.
I’m sure of it!
Let’s keep guard here until the revengeful ghost appears tomorrow.
The beings that bring calamity on the people, ——— the revengeful ghosts,
People that died while possessing strong lingerings affection are unable to go to Heaven and become revengeful ghosts drifting in the Afterlife.* author note : World of the Spirits
Usually, when left alone for several hundred years, this lingering affection eventually dies down and they descend to merge into the Soup of Spirits,
It seems like we have an 「enemy」that Returns from Hell these revengeful ghosts in the Life*. Author note : World of the Living.
The Return from Hell 「POWER」engraved in the body the Temple of the Ancient Times’ Princess can only be used by her.
It’s been confirmed that this 「enemy」most likely used it too.
On tag : Enemy
Heh Heh (not insert)
The... The story of this farmer from the Nara period...
On book : Miraculous Stories from the Japanese Buddhist Tradition.*
It’s filled with too much brutality, I can’t bear it anymore~!
Kishino Homaro, farmer during the Nara Period;
“Protector*” that went to Chikushi (Kyuushuu Area) from the country of Musashi (Tokyo vicinity).
TIPS ④ Protectors. - After the defeat at 「the Battle of Baekgang」in the year 663, in order to defend against the Tang Dynasty (China), the farmers were forced to to take military service. This lasted for more than 3 years. (by the Yoro Code*.)
He left his wife in Tokyo and only brought along his mother.
On tag : Mother, Kusakabeno Matoji.
Aah, I really want to meet with my wife,
That’s it, I thought of something good.
If Mother were to die, instead of serving in the army I could probably get back to Tokyo to do my mourning.
Hi Hi Hi.
The son was a real idiot.
Kneel over here!!
As such—— This very contemptible son attempted to decapitate his virtuous mother in an instant!!!
But suddenly, the Earth split opened and the son died.
*RUMBLE RUMBLE RUMBLE*
What’s with the Earth splitting open suddenly...
As if it could really happen!!
The feelings of love for his wife that made him be so contemptible have their worth!!
Even so, it seems it was only my delusion to think it would be a story filled of BL between men in their Protectors Army life——]
*MON MON MON*
I’m getting a nosebleed——!!!
Qui...quickly, I need to send this character design for the Summer Comiket at once!!
I’ll expose all of my feelings in it, this is the most logical thing to do...
Once again, instead of getting your refill of Iron... You’re getting your refill of History?
How is it going?
Have you found a revengeful ghost you want to Return from Hell?
TIPS ⑤ - Iron
The source of energy of every rail buff.
Box : Takemi Kajichi, Wata’s Servant.
Of course, Ha Ha!!
I’ve decided on Kishino Homaro, farmer from the Nara Period, Heh Heh Heh!!!
I look forward to it,
Of when people die again because a revengeful ghost has appeared.
It doesn’t matter to me~~,
With this, if all the revengeful ghosts are cleared of suspicion, this would make me really happy~~.
Have absolutely no interest in the people that die!!
The next day, Evening in Fukuoka
Let’s go, Sarutahiko!!
These are the kids that will be targeted!!!
*RUN RUN RUN RUN*
Let’s get back back home then let’s go hunting!!
They’re on their way back from school?
Are they siblings?
At first glance, I’d say they must be around ten or eleven years old,
Around the same age as Ame.
Do you want to go to school?
No, it’s fine.
As far as studying goes, Zeami and others teach me everything that I have to know,
More importantly, Ame has a duty to be useful to the people.
I was thinking of something else, I was remembering...
My dead big sister.
Anyhow, for now we have to help these kids!
*RUN RUN RUN RUN RUN RUN RUN*
Excuse me, you two!!
Pl... Please wait a moment!!
Soon, you’ll be attacked by a revengeful ghost so...
On pendant : Crime Prevention Buzzer
*BEEP BEEP BEEP*
It’s a suspicious person, please help us!!
The suspicious is this old hag with huge breasts!!
Let’s run away, Takeru!!
Wait, Yamato siblings!!
Jeez, what the hell is she doing?
You have to be careful~~
Let’s make our arrival through the sky of Chikushi!!!
Is Kishino Homaro there?
Hah Hah Hah,
So it seems you really turned into a revengeful ghost~~
This happens every time~~
That too was only a delusion it seems,
Your face is completely different~~
*STEP STEP STEP STEP*
*GI GI GI GI GI*
The enemy has effected the Return from Hell of the revengeful ghost from the skies!!
I lost sight of the airship in the storm!!!
It’s a guerilla downpour——
The kids are!!
Kids, kids, I am going to kill you kids!!!
I’m going to kill you weaklings!!! Kneel over there~~~~~~!!!
Kids, move out of the way!!!
It’s dangerous so go over there!!
S... Sis, what is this? What is it?
It’s a revengeful ghost.
What’s with this?
Why are you
Why, why, why, why, why
Sis, Big bro was... Did he get eaten!?
It’ll... It’ll be fine......!
Sarutahiko’s body is all machinery except for his head and heart,
It’ll be a cinch victory.
Alright, cordoning off the ten points using Orochi no Hire, complete!!
Ame!! Quickly, you need to effect the requiem of souls with your 「POWER」!!!
Suppress this malevolent soul!!!
You’re not hurt, are you?
We, we were really scared!!!
I’m really sorry for activating the buzzer before!!!
I’m really sorry for saying you were an old hag with huge breasts!!!
Don’t worry about that anymore!
We might not know your age but...
Look out, Ame!!!
How daaare you do that to my cute revengeful ghost...!!!
*BON BON BON*
I only want to make an 「Afterlife Era」!!!
