Oh, over there!
Shion Chisato
What's is it?
Narumi Arisa
Over there...perhaps...
Narumi Arisa
Isn't it a bakery?
Shion Chisato
...You're right.
Narumi Arisa
Something like that - I got a little hungry...
Shion Chisato
...Haa~ Should we take a detour?
Narumi Arisa
Ooh!
Shion Chisato
Well...
Narumi Arisa
Aren't you hungry too, Chisato?
Shion Chisato
Eh...
Shion Chisato
...
Shion Chisato
Well, uh, just a bit...
Narumi Arisa
It's decided!
Shion Chisato
You~
Narumi Arisa
I'll treat you!
Shion Chisato
Huh ...
Shion Chisato
...
Shion Chisato
Well then, I suppose...
Narumi Arisa
What about a creme, Chisato?
Shion Chisato
...Anko...
Narumi Arisa
Okay! Well then, I'll buy it!
Shion Chisato
...Yeah, yeah...
Shion Chisato
(We've immediately gotten off track...)
Shion Chisato

- Shion Chisato -
Yes...
We came to this city

Narumi Arisa
Yo, I'm waiting!
Shion Chisato
Oh, ah...thanks.
Narumi Arisa
Okay, let's have it!
Narumi Arisa

Shion Chisato
... Really, it is delicious.
Narumi Arisa
When it becomes like this, you will also want to try other flavours!
Shion Chisato
True... Perhaps that chocolate one...
Shion Chisato
...
Shion Chisato
No, that's not it!
Narumi Arisa
Now, Chisato...
Shion Chisato
Hey!
Narumi Arisa

Amano Suzune
I am Suzune. Pleasure to meet you!
Awane Kokoro
Yeah!
Amano Suzune
So then...
Awane Kokoro
Mm?
Amano Suzune
Goodbye...

Amano Suzune
...
Amano Suzune

Amano Suzune
not...hitting?
Awane Kokoro
I, now...me?
Awane Kokoro
I mean...I...did I evade...?
Amano Suzune
...Next is...
Awane Kokoro
Wait, what do you mean...?
Amano Suzune
Be quiet.
Awane Kokoro
What... what are you trying to do to me...?
Amano Suzune
...
Awane Kokoro
Uwah!
Awane Kokoro
(I, now...this person's sword...was aiming at my neck...?)
Awane Kokoro
Wait a moment, please!
Awane Kokoro
You...me...
Awane Kokoro
... Are you trying to kill me?
Amano Suzune
...
Awane Kokoro
...Is...is that really so?...
Awane Kokoro
...Why!? Why am I...??
Amano Suzune
...
Amano Suzune
... Ha!
Awane Kokoro
Uwaa!
Awane Kokoro
(This is pretty ...!)
Awane Kokoro
(bad situation ...!)
???
Kokoro, fight back and then run away.
Awane Kokoro
... Ah ...!
Awane Kokoro
(This voice ...)
Awane Kokoro
All right!
Awane Kokoro
Haa!
Amano Suzune
... It's useless.
Awane Kokoro
(I was repelled!)
Amano Suzune
Goodbye...
Amano Suzune
...Guu!
Awane Kokoro
It works ...?
???
Right now ... hurry up!
Awane Kokoro
Ye...yeah!

Amano Suzune

Awane Kokoro

Awane Kokoro
...It seems to be okay...
Awane Kokoro
... Haa, I was saved!
Awane Kokoro
... Masara!

Kagami Masara
I heard that you found the barrier ...
Kagami Masara
How come you were attacked by a magical girl?
Awane Kokoro
I don't know! It was so sudden for me too... ...
Awane Kokoro
... Oh, but ... I heard her name...
Kagami Masara
Her name? What is it?
Awane Kokoro
It's Suzune...
Kagami Masara
Suzune...
Awane Kokoro
I wonder if she's a girl from Kamihama ...
Kagami Masara
I don't know... But anyway...
Kagami Masara
She's a dangerous girl...

Section 4

13:25


- Shion Chisato -
I came to Kamihama city to look for a picture book
That picture book was one my father painted...
- Shion Chisato -
My father WAS a picture book author once...
I mean he WAS...
- Shion Chisato -
...Because I changed my father magically ...
- Shion Chisato -
My father had been drawing attention with his style
as a picture book writer
But gradually the interest in him diminished
The copies of each new work had been decreasing
and the people crowding around him have also disappeared
- Shion Chisato -
My father gradually drowned in drinking and started to find fault with my mother
daily
My mother desperately endured, and worked to support the household
but eventually wore out her body ...
- Shion Chisato -
My mother died ...
- Shion Chisato -
Since my mother died, the brunt of my father's frustration was on me
I have endured it for a long time...
I have endured but...
One day I felt I could not bear it anymore.
- Shion Chisato -
At that time, there...
- Shion Chisato -
Kyuubey came
- Shion Chisato -
I hoped...
I want my father... Reborn
to a gentle and respectable ideal father...

- Shion Chisato -
And I became a "Magical Girl" who fights witches...
- Shion Chisato -
It was as if I had become
a character of a picture book...
- Shion Chisato -
But it was a guilty feeling
My father no longer draws picture books
and behaves as an ideal father
By doing that, he magically became an ideal father...
- Shion Chisato -
When I said those words to Arisa
my heart got a little lighter

Narumi Arisa
Because nothing is wrong with Chisato.
- Narumi Arisa -
I don't think...your mom would have wanted him to draw picture books
to the point of hurting his child.

Shion Chisato
(I was really happy to that...)
Shion Chisato
(So, is that why you said you would go out with me today too, Arisa ...)
Shion Chisato
...
Narumi Arisa
...What is it?
Shion Chisato
Why did you come with me today?
Narumi Arisa
Well...because I was free?
Shion Chisato
... I see.
Narumi Arisa
...
Narumi Arisa
...then...it came to me?
Narumi Arisa
I'm looking... for the picture book that Chisato's dad drew ...
Shion Chisato
... I see.
Shion Chisato
That's what I said, isn't it, Arisa ...
- Shion Chisato -
The start of the story was a few days ago...
- Shion Chisato -
That photo I saw was the beginning...

Awane Kokoro
I, Awane Kokoro!

Amano Suzune
(Magical girls of Kamihama ...)
Amano Suzune
(Certainly...seem to vary...)
Amano Suzune
...Kyuubey

Kyuubey
That's right...
Kyuubey
Well then, are you going to continue in the next town?
Kyuubey
The job of "assassin" hunting magical girls...
- Amano Suzune -
In the town where I lived, I hunted magical girls
and finally killed them all...
- Amano Suzune -
I was already finished transferring to the Akagasaki Junior High School
with Hozuki City as my next target.
- Amano Suzune -
At that time, I heard a story from Kyuubey...
Kyuubey
Actually, it's just recently, but,
Kyuubey
There is a town where we can no longer monitor.
Amano Suzune
What do you mean...?
Kyuubey
Since such a time...inside that town
Kyuubey
It's been impossible for us to know everything going on inside.
- Amano Suzune -
Kyuubey said that
little by little,
magical girls are gathering in that town.
- Amano Suzune -
...Knowing what I am doing
and giving that kind of information to me...
- Amano Suzune -
...such an incubator ...
- Amano Suzune -
It is probably waiting for
me to get fought back
in that town
- Amano Suzune -
As usual...
Dry...logical...
Amano Suzune
That's right.
Amano Suzune
Thank you. I heard good things.
Amano Suzune
Tell me the name of that town?
Kyuubey
All right.
Kyuubey
The name of the town is...

Amano Suzune
Kamihama City...
Amano Suzune
(This town...I'll find out more ...)
Amano Suzune
(... and upon finding it ...)
Amano Suzune
...
Amano Suzune
...Beyond this, it cannot go any further...
Amano Suzune
Magical girls...a negative chain reaction...!

Chapter 2

Section 6

14:22


- Amano Suzune -
I heard information from Kyuubey that
there are many magical girls in Kamihama City
I actually headed to Kamihama city and conducted an investigation
- Amano Suzune -
In the process I encountered a magical girl named Awane Kokoro
but I failed to kill her
- Amano Suzune -
But there are many magical girls in the city of Kamihama surely...
I understood that
and decided to further investigate
- Amano Suzune -
However...
Amano Suzune
...Ha!
Б懊無*エб壹!
∝、ァ螳エбl
Amano Suzune
(No one has come yet ...)
- Amano Suzune -
Where there are witches and familiars
magical girls will come.
- Amano Suzune -
I happened to find a barrier and opened it
but surprisingly, the attack of the familiar was strong
Amano Suzune
(If it's like this ... I can't wait long)...
Amano Suzune
...What!
縺ォ繧ゅжl
Amano Suzune
...Hm?
ф繧後ф繧!
Amano Suzune
...From here too?
Amano Suzune
...This is bad!
貞ョ医後!
p*螳エб壹!
Amano Suzune
...It looks like they can't be dealt with easily.
Amano Suzune
Then ... I'll sweep them away!
舌キ斬翫後!?!?
縺ォ繧ゅжl!!
Amano Suzune
...

Amano Suzune
(I was careless...)
Amano Suzune
(and got hurt unnecessarily...)
Amano Suzune
(I have to heal with magic...)
- ??? -
Ah! Are you okay!?
Amano Suzune
What...?
Shinobu Akira
Your arms are injured!?

Section 7

Several Days Ago


- Shion Chisato -
Things began with an absurd conversation in the classroom
Hey hey, Chisato!
Shion Chisato
Hm?
Is this Chisato's father's book?
Shion Chisato
...Eh?
- Shion Chisato -
The book my classmate showed me
was a picture book uploaded to SNS
It's indeed drawn by my father
Just look at the author and it's obvious
- Shion Chisato -
Of course, my classmate
knows nothing about my wish
So, she was not malicious
Shion Chisato
...Ah, yeah, it is...
As expected!
I heard that he used to be a picture book author, and that's true!
He's awesome~!
Shion Chisato
Uh, yeah...
The one who uploaded it said he found it in Kamihama by chance
Shion Chisato
Kamihama...
This, when was it published?
Shion Chisato
Um~mm...
Fairly long ago, right? Right?
...And here is another comment which goes...
It is a fairly rare picture book-- It's that true?
Shion Chisato
Rare...?
- Shion Chisato -
Frankly speaking, because of my father's peculiar style
there might be some kind of values
in his works
- Shion Chisato -
But...
Shion Chisato
I'm sorry, but I... don't know it well.
Huh, why?
Shion Chisato
...
- Shion Chisato -
In the past, my father was full of hope
- Shion Chisato -
He drew, strongly motivated by
an idea of drawing stories
which granted kids dreams
- Shion Chisato -
But that idea was crushed and distorted
by his surroundings and himself
- Shion Chisato -
I, who know both sides of things
unconsciously kept a distant
from my father's work
- Shion Chisato -
As a result, really, I didn't know
the value of that book...
This one? I'll send you the address...
Shion Chisato
Ah, oh, okay...
By the way, you don't have this book at home?
Shion Chisato
...Eh?
Shouldn't the picture book author own many copies?
Aren't they... treasures?
Shion Chisato
...Nope...
Then...
Then, what do you want?
...Ah...
Narumi Arisa
Want Chisato to sell one to you?
(Narumi Arisa...!)
Narumi Arisa
Or... pay me for providing some information?
No, no. I don't mean that.
I'm just talking about something I found on the internet.
... See you!
Narumi Arisa
Really... So mean~
Shion Chisato
... Huh
Shion Chisato
Thank you, Arisa.
Narumi Arisa
Treat that kind of people more casually
Narumi Arisa
If it were me I'd smack...
Shion Chisato
Don't do that! ...You shouldn't
Narumi Arisa
... Okay okay...
- Shion Chisato -
Arisa is a magical girl like me...
- Shion Chisato -
She wished for the power to
make anyone yield
Soon she abused that power
and then... was abused as well
- Shion Chisato -
At that time, we met
- Shion Chisato -
Arisa used to be contrary to me
but she gradually opened her mind
and became my friend
- Shion Chisato -
Since then, Kanade Haruka senpai
- Shion Chisato -
and younger Hinata Matsuri
- Shion Chisato -
... with the two magical girls, we are a team of 4 people altogether

Shion Chisato
...
Narumi Arisa
...
Narumi Arisa
...Does it come to your mind? Chisato's father.
Shion Chisato
...Please stop. He's not dead anyway.
Narumi Arisa
The past, I mean.
Shion Chisato
...
Shion Chisato
Probably, ye...
Narumi Arisa
Stop then. Isn't that a bad memory?
Narumi Arisa
It only depresses you.
Shion Chisato
Probably, that's true...
- Shion Chisato -
As Arisa said...
- Shion Chisato -
...
- Shion Chisato -
... Oh...?
... But...
Narumi Arisa
Stooop, theeeen! Okay, forget about that! Right!
Shion Chisato
...
Shion Chisato
... Wait... That's not...
Narumi Arisa
... That's not? What's not?
- Shion Chisato -
... The picture book...
- Shion Chisato -
I...

Section 8

Several Days Ago ~ 13:36


Shion Chisato
... Wait... That's not...
Narumi Arisa
... That's not? What's not?
Shion Chisato
... The picture book...
Shion Chisato
I...
Shion Chisato
used to... love the book very much
Narumi Arisa
You, Chisato?
Shion Chisato
Yes...
Shion Chisato
When my home was peace before my father freaked out
Shion Chisato
... Since some point, I have tried to avoid reading my father's book...
Shion Chisato
So, I barely know anything about that, for real.
Narumi Arisa
... I see...
Shion Chisato
But, somehow, I find the book... quite familiar...!
Narumi Arisa
...Hm~? This one...
Narumi Arisa
entitled O-Dango-Kun's Adventure?
Narumi Arisa
... Then, what is it about?
Shion Chisato
Ummm...
Shion Chisato
...
Shion Chisato
I don't remember what it is.
Narumi Arisa
Haa?
Shion Chisato
Not even the title...
Shion Chisato
But, somehow... I miss it as I see the cover...
Shion Chisato
and feel I know this picture book...
Narumi Arisa
O~h...
Narumi Arisa
Then, it was published fairly long ago... right?
Shion Chisato
Probably...
Narumi Arisa
You don't have one at home?
Shion Chisato
... All the picture books are gone.
Shion Chisato
Since my father stopped drawing...
Narumi Arisa
Ah...
Narumi Arisa
Sorry...
Shion Chisato
... Never mind... It's okay.
Shion Chisato
...
Shion Chisato
... I began to care about it, the picture book...
- Shion Chisato -
O-Dango-Kun's Adventure...
Why do I care so much...
- Shion Chisato -
Have I ever felt like this
ever before
for my father's picture book?
- Shion Chisato -
Since a point, my father's picture books
has been equal to
"The past to be forgotten"
Yet...
- Shion Chisato -
... Then, I decided

Shion Chisato
... The photo on SNS features Kamihama...
Narumi Arisa
It was written so...
Shion Chisato
I... want to go and search for it now
Narumi Arisa
No. You don't have to search for it on purpose...
Shion Chisato
I've searched on auction sites but...
Narumi Arisa
...They don't have any?
Shion Chisato
No...
Shion Chisato
But I'm really curious about the book...
Narumi Arisa
... But going to Kamihama does not guarantee...
Narumi Arisa
... That's it... In the first place, did that person buy it?
Shion Chisato
According to what he posted on SNS, he didn't.
Shion Chisato
He said... unfortunately he didn't have enough money in hand.
Narumi Arisa
What about the shop? Where is it placed?
Shion Chisato
I don't know
Narumi Arisa
Try asking the author of the post...
Shion Chisato
I sent a message to him but didn't receive any reply
Shion Chisato
Recently, he is not updating, so I suppose it is possibly an alt account...
Narumi Arisa
Then it becomes a dead end!
Shion Chisato
Anyway I want to go!
Shion Chisato
How can I say that... I need refreshing...
Narumi Arisa
That feel when...
Narumi Arisa
... You become care about that and start to fidget...
Shion Chisato
... Yeah, that kind of feeling.
Narumi Arisa
... Then, when to go?
Shion Chisato
Eh? ... Hm~... The next holiday probably,
Narumi Arisa
Hmph...
Narumi Arisa
Alright! I'll go too!
Shion Chisato
...
Shion Chisato
...Eh~!?
Narumi Arisa
What do you mean by "Eh~!?"?
Narumi Arisa
It's just I became curious about that too...
Narumi Arisa
Anyway... I am free!

- Shion Chisato -
... Despite that...

Narumi Arisa
Wow! The cakes here looks delicious...
Narumi Arisa
... Hey, Chisato...
Shion Chisato
Noo way!
Shion Chisato
Didn't you eat taiyaki just now? Don't eat too many sweet foods!
Shion Chisato
And I won't allow you to take detours anymore!
Narumi Arisa
...Ye~s...
Narumi Arisa
...So, the second-hand bookstore called "Natsume Bookstore", is it here?
Shion Chisato
Looks so...
Narumi Arisa
The big one over there?
Shion Chisato
No, it seems not that big...
Shion Chisato
It's like a famous shop in Kamihama with collections of all kinds of particular things
Narumi Arisa
O~h. I see.
Shion Chisato
So, let's start searching here...!
Narumi Arisa
... In spite of that...
Narumi Arisa
We haven't gotten there yet...
Shion Chisato
...
Shion Chisato
... According to the address on the map, it should be near here tho...
Narumi Arisa
... I don't think we have gone around and around though...
Shion Chisato
...
Narumi Arisa
Or... Are we lost?
Shion Chisato
...
Shion Chisato
... Excuse me! Do you know Natsume Bookstore nearby...
Narumi Arisa
(...Eh~ ... She got away regardlessly?)
Natsume Bookstore...? Ah, well...
Hmm?
Ah, wait!
Akira-chan!
Shinobu Akira
Hmm? ...What's up?

Section 9

Shinobu Akira
Your arms are injured!?
Amano Suzune
Eh...?
Amano Suzune
Ah... Ahhh, this...
Shinobu Akira
... What... happened?
Amano Suzune
... Nothing in particular, just got scratched.
Amano Suzune
When I stumbled alongside the wall and knocked it.
Shinobu Akira
Uwaa, I see...
Shinobu Akira
Well...
Shinobu Akira
That's it! Bandage for now!
Amano Suzune
...Th-thanks...
Shinobu Akira
Remember to get a new one after disinfection.
Amano Suzune
O, Okay...
Shinobu Akira
...You mentioned stumbling just now... Are you suffering from anemia?
Amano Suzune
Ah, yes, that kind of feeling...
Shinobu Akira
Then, you'd better take a rest for a while.
Shinobu Akira
There are places where you can sit nearby...
Amano Suzune
...No, I'm fine...
Shinobu Akira
Okay...! Sorry for the abrupt suggestion.
Shinobu Akira
You'd better sit here and don't move until you feel relaxed.
Shinobu Akira
Wanna call anyone? Or do you have a phone?
Amano Suzune
Yes...
Shinobu Akira
Then, I have to go. Take care...!
Amano Suzune
...
Amano Suzune
(... Is she a local...?)
Amano Suzune
(I want some information about Kamihama... Try to approach her...)
Amano Suzune
Ex, excuse me...!
Shinobu Akira
Eh? What? Are you okay?
Amano Suzune
I'm sorry...
Amano Suzune
But I feel like I need to take a rest where I can...
Shinobu Akira
... Where you can or not, that sounds a little bit...
Shinobu Akira
Okay, I see! Anyway I'll lead you!
Shinobu Akira
(... I thought there was a reaction of a witch or familiars but it disappeared suddenly...)
Shinobu Akira
(Did she get involved in that...)
Shinobu Akira
(Anyway, it's good for her to follow)
Shinobu Akira
(And I can take care of her further as well...)

Chapter 3

Section 10

- Amano Suzune -
Because of my injury
I met a girl
- Amano Suzune -
I was led to a place to have a rest
and that was a shopping district
- Amano Suzune -
... 's street
At a simple street vendor
Shinobu Akira
Here it is! Okay, take a seat!
Amano Suzune
... Thanks!
Amano Suzune
... But, here is...
Shinobu Akira
Ah, just borrow a seat here for a while...
Amano Suzune
Borrow...?
Shinobu Akira
...Hm~, in short, some kind of social contribution or services..
Shinobu Akira
... like a consultation desk...
Amano Suzune
I see...
Shinobu Akira
... Ah, but I'm not the one giving consultations!
Shinobu Akira
Someone else is doing that...
Amano Suzune
Someone else...?
Shinobu Akira
She hasn't arrived yet tho
Shinobu Akira
Ah, however! It doesn't mean I have nothing to do with that!
Shinobu Akira
I offer some help...
Amano Suzune
Well...
Shinobu Akira
Hm?
Amano Suzune
I... Amano Suzune... Thanks... Again.
Shinobu Akira
Ah, now that you mention that, we haven't exchanged names.
Shinobu Akira
I am Shinobu Akira!
Amano Suzune
Miss Shinobu...
Shinobu Akira
Nah~, that shocked me.
Shinobu Akira
I happened to pass by and saw your arms bleeding...
Shinobu Akira
... Ah, that's it! Must disinfect now!
Shinobu Akira
Actually, there was a pharmacy where you got some stuff like giveaways...
Amano Suzune
... Sorry...
Shinobu Akira
Well...
Shinobu Akira
(... Yes...)
Shinobu Akira
(... She is not behaving oddly for now...)
Shinobu Akira
(Great... Looks well...)
- Amano Suzune -
After that, I received her help
Then, I took a short rest
and made my mind to hear some information from her

Section 11

13:43


Ah, wait!
Akira-chan!
Shinobu Akira
Hmm? ...What's up?
You pass by just at the right moment, Akira-chan.
Kako-chan in Natsume Bookstore is Akira-chan's friend, right?
Shinobu Akira
Yeah, she is though...
They want to go to Natsume Bookstore.
Shinobu Akira
Ah, I see.
I am old and not good at directing the way. So Akira-chan, please do me a favor!
Shinobu Akira
Eh?
Shinobu Akira
... Directing the way to Natsume Bookstore...
Shinobu Akira
... Then, I'll lead you there.
Shion Chisato
No, you don't have to...!
Shinobu Akira
I don't have anything to do in particular...
Shinobu Akira
Emiri seems busy and her advice booth is shut today too...
Shinobu Akira
It's completely okay since I have time!
As expected, Akira is helpful whenever you turn to her!
Shinobu Akira
... Come on-- Stop saying that...
Shion Chisato
Well... Just tell us the route and...
Shinobu Akira
Are you customers of Natsume Bookstore?
Shinobu Akira
It's not good for Kako if I don't lead you there properly.
Maa, you are nice!
Shinobu Akira
Then, since it's not that far from here, let's go!
Shion Chisato
... But...
Narumi Arisa
Isn't that good! She is leading us!
Narumi Arisa
Please take us there!
Shion Chisato
Wait! Arisa!
Shinobu Akira
Okaaay! Please follow me!
Shion Chisato
... So-sorry...
- Shion Chisato -
Thus, we were led by Akira-san,
a warmhearted person, to Natsume Bookstore

- Shion Chisato -
Led by Akira-san
We arrived at Natsume Bookstore...
Shinobu Akira
Hello-
Natsume Kako
Yes-
Natsume Kako
Ah! Akira-san!
Natsume Kako
What's up?
Shinobu Akira
Well, I led your customers here.
Narumi Arisa
Thanks.
Natsume Kako
Sorry to trouble you...
Natsume Kako
But thank you so much! For bringing customers here!
Shinobu Akira
Then, Kako, See you later.
Natsume Kako
Eh, are you leaving so soon?
Shinobu Akira
I have my things to do. Come, treat your customers!
Shinobu Akira
I'll go! See you!
Shion Chisato
Um, thank you very much!
Shion Chisato
...Come, Alisa, you too!
Narumi Arisa
Ah, ye...
Narumi Arisa
Thank you very much!
Shion Chisato
You're welcome!
Shion Chisato
Take your time~!
Natsume Kako
Thank you very much!
Natsume Kako
... Then... What can I do for you?
Shion Chisato
Ye, well... We're looking for a picture book
Natsume Kako
A picture book?
Shion Chisato
Entitled O-Dango-Kun's Adventure...
Natsume Kako
O-Dango-Kun's Adventure, right...
Natsume Kako
Just a minute, I'll check the record of the stocking.
Natsume Kako
It won't take long, would you please wait patiently?
Shion Chisato
Ah, Okay, of course! Thank you!
Natsume Kako
...Fhe~ So many books...
Natsume Kako
Ah, yes!
Natsume Kako
Do you want to search on the bookshelves too?
Natsume Kako
Despite the record, it might miss some books...
Natsume Kako
Ahaha... Sorry about that...
Shion Chisato
Come on, you don't have to!
Shion Chisato
Then, we'll search for it
Natsume Kako
This way, please!
- Shion Chisato -
Finally the actual
search for the picture book began...
- Shion Chisato -
... only if it did...
Narumi Arisa
... This...
Shion Chisato
... What!? What did you find!?
Narumi Arisa
... Chisato, look...

- Shion Chisato -
We arrived at Natsume Bookstore
and finally the actual
search for the picture book began...
- Shion Chisato -
... only if it did...
Narumi Arisa
... This...
Shion Chisato
... What!? You found it!?
Narumi Arisa
... Chisato, look...
Narumi Arisa
Do you know... this book?
Shion Chisato
Eh...?
Shion Chisato
... What...
Shion Chisato
It's not O-Dango-Kun's Adventure, is it...
Narumi Arisa
... Sorry sorry...
Shion Chisato
Detour even here~?
Narumi Arisa
However, look...
Shion Chisato
Eh~?
Narumi Arisa
Take a look!
Shion Chisato
... Enough~...
Shion Chisato
... Well...
- Shion Chisato -
Once upon a time
there was a small village
- Shion Chisato -
One time, the village
came a wolf in human’s clothing
- Shion Chisato -
As the night fell
every day, the wolf attacked
people in the village
- Shion Chisato -
A warmhearted witch living in the forest
sympathized the villagers
and bated the wolf with magics
- Shion Chisato -
The village became peaceful
but the villagers, who feared being suspected as the attacker
planted all those things on the witch
and banished her from the village
Shion Chisato
...
Narumi Arisa
...
Shion Chisato
... That's a sad story.
Narumi Arisa
... Ye it is...
Shion Chisato
But...
Shion Chisato
The word "witch" may deceive you
Shion Chisato
as a magical girl.
Narumi Arisa
... Well, it does tho...
Narumi Arisa
I guess being alone... Yeah.
Shion Chisato
... Alisa...
Shion Chisato
(Is she comparing that to her in the past...)
Narumi Arisa
... This book seems to have a sequel tho...)
Shion Chisato
... Hey, stop there! Do that next time!
Shion Chisato
Aren't you coming for the search with me?
Narumi Arisa
...
Narumi Arisa
... Oh yeah! Ahaha... Unintentionally.
Narumi Arisa
Alright, I'll do it seriously.
Shion Chisato
If only you did in the first place...!

- Shion Chisato -
Despite that since then
we searched every corner in Natsume Bookstore...
Narumi Arisa
No way...
Shion Chisato
It's not here...
Natsume Kako
Well~...
Shion Chisato
Ah, what's the result?
Natsume Kako
It's...

Section 14

14:55


- Amano Suzune -
I got injured in the battle against familiars
A girl called Shinobu Akira happened to pass by
and dressed my wound
- Amano Suzune -
I took this as a chance
and made up my mind to
talk to her for some information about Kamihama
- Amano Suzune -
However...
Amano Suzune
Well... Miss Shinobu.
Shinobu Akira
Miss Shinobu is kinda...
Amano Suzune
Eh?
Shinobu Akira
That sounds somewhat weird and embarrassing to me...
Amano Suzune
Ah, then...
Amano Suzune
Akira-san.
Shinobu Akira
Yes. This is how people called me.
Amano Suzune
Then, please call me Suzune...
Shinobu Akira
Suzune-san!
Amano Suzune
Ye, yes!
Shinobu Akira
Is Suzune-san a middle school student?
Amano Suzune
Ye...
Shinobu Akira
Same as me!
Shinobu Akira
Your school? Mine is Sankyouin!
Amano Suzune
My school is... Akanegasaki Middle School
Amano Suzune
(Technically, the one I am about to enter, though.)
Shinobu Akira
He~ Where is Akanegasaki?
Amano Suzune
In Hozuki City.
Shinobu Akira
Ah... Then you came from outside this city!
Amano Suzune
Ye... I have some things to do here.
Shinobu Akira
Is it Hozuki City! Oh~ ye!
- Amano Suzune -
I wanted to ask something but
it turned out that I was asked in reverse...
- Amano Suzune -
Moreover...
Shinobu Akira
A girl called Emily gives consultations here...
Amano Suzune
Emily...?
Shinobu Akira
Yes! How can I describe...
Shinobu Akira
Gyaru... Right!
Amano Suzune
Gyaru...
Shinobu Akira
But, she is an interesting girl~ Even before this...
- Amano Suzune -
Akira-san talked enthusiastically
about a friend of hers...
- Amano Suzune -
I can't recall anymore that
how long it has been
since I had such a period of time
Shinobu Akira
... She said something like that!
Amano Suzune
Ahaha...!
- Amano Suzune -
To get me in tune with her
I laughed courtesy...
- Amano Suzune -
Presumably
I was somewhat interested in that
- Amano Suzune -
The conversation lasted for a long time, fairly
- Amano Suzune -
But...
- Amano Suzune -
It ended abruptly...
Shinobu Akira
... Huh?
Tokiwa Nanaka
Excuse me.
Shinobu Akira
Nanaka!
Tokiwa Nanaka
Ah, Akira-san. You came.
Shinobu Akira
What's up? You rarely come here.
Tokiwa Nanaka
Nope. I had some things to do nearby and felt like visiting here...
Tokiwa Nanaka
Like I gave in to temptation... I guess...
Tokiwa Nanaka
...
Tokiwa Nanaka
Who is her...?
Shinobu Akira
Ah, Amano Suzune-san.
Amano Suzune
Hi...
Tokiwa Nanaka
For real...
Shinobu Akira
...Ah, well, my friend's...
Tokiwa Nanaka
I am Tokiwa Nanaka.
- Amano Suzune -
As I saw her smile...
I put myself on guard unconsciously...
- Amano Suzune -
The reason was that I also...
- Amano Suzune -
Pretended to smile
as that person did...

Chapter 4

Section 15

15:27


Tokiwa Nanaka
I am Tokiwa Nanaka.
- Amano Suzune -
The person named Tokiwa Nanaka
who pretended to smile the same way I did...
- Amano Suzune -
Made me put myself on guard instinctively...
Tokiwa Nanaka
So... How did you know each other?
Shinobu Akira
Suzune-san got injured nearby.
Shinobu Akira
Look, her arms.
Tokiwa Nanaka
Maa... Looks pitiful... But how?
Shinobu Akira
She was dizzy and hurt her arms by rubbing against the wall... Right?
Amano Suzune
Yes...
Tokiwa Nanaka
Isn't Akira-san accompanying her?
Shinobu Akira
I passed by there. And then I thought "Jeez! She's injured!"
Shinobu Akira
Since she was still dizzy and needed some treatment and rest, we moved here... Something like that.
Tokiwa Nanaka
I see...
Tokiwa Nanaka
However...
Tokiwa Nanaka
Suzune-san, where did you come from?
Amano Suzune
... Eh?
Tokiwa Nanaka
Oh, I think your uniform is unfamiliar to...
Shinobu Akira
Nanaka...?
Shinobu Akira
...She said from Hozuki City...
Tokiwa Nanaka
Then, the uniform is?
Amano Suzune
Akanegasaki Middle School's...
Tokiwa Nanaka
Came from outside this city to Kamihama...
Tokiwa Nanaka
What on earth were you coming for?
Shinobu Akira
... Wait, Nanaka
Amano Suzune
...
Tokiwa Nanaka
... Sorry for the rudeness. I was too blunt to a person meeting for the first time.
Tokiwa Nanaka
But, I'm just curious...
Amano Suzune
...
Amano Suzune
... My friend lives here and I came to meet her
Tokiwa Nanaka
... I see...
Tokiwa Nanaka
Then, your friend...
Shinobu Akira
What are you asking for, Nanaka!
Amano Suzune
Well...!
Amano Suzune
I'm fine now, so I'm leaving now.
Amano Suzune
Thank you... Akira-san...
Shinobu Akira
Ah, wait!
Shinobu Akira
... Honestly! What were you attempting to do!
Shinobu Akira
Asking so unreservedly...! Didn't you find yourself rude!
Tokiwa Nanaka
... Akira-san...
Shinobu Akira
What the heck, enough!
Tokiwa Nanaka
... I was relieved you are safe...
Shinobu Akira
... Me? I mean, I am not injured...!
Tokiwa Nanaka
I detoured here probably because of a sense of foreboding...
Shinobu Akira
...What? Sense...?
Tokiwa Nanaka
Well, Suzune-san is...
Tokiwa Nanaka
an enemy... of ours...!

- Shion Chisato -
To find the picture book
we searched the bookshelves in Natsume Bookstore
from corner to corner
- Shion Chisato -
However, we didn't see it...
- Shion Chisato -
And then...
Natsume Kako
Well~...
Shion Chisato
Ah, what's the result?
Natsume Kako
It's...
Natsume Kako
more than likely that it's not recorded in our store either...
Shion Chisato
... Is that so
Narumi Arisa
... Pity
Natsume Kako
... I'm sorry
Natsume Kako
... Well... You don't have to answer this question but...
Shion Chisato
... What?
Natsume Kako
Is that picture book... worth searching for... so much?
Shion Chisato
...
Shion Chisato
... I think so.
Shion Chisato
... That's something I want to make sure.
Natsume Kako
... Something to make sure...?
Shion Chisato
I don't know what it is...
Shion Chisato
But anyway I want to have a look at the real thing.
Natsume Kako
... I see.
Natsume Kako
I'll search with you!
Narumi Arisa
Heh?
Shion Chisato
Eh, no, that's...
Natsume Kako
Well! I, the daughter in the second-hand bookstore, love books very much anyway...!
Natsume Kako
So... If anyone wants a book that much...
Natsume Kako
I mean if I see anyone like that, I'd like to offer some help anyway!
Natsume Kako
How about this? If I'm not disturbing...!
Shion Chisato
No way... How can we bother a person working in a store...
Narumi Arisa
...
Narumi Arisa
... Chisato, I'll accept her
Shion Chisato
No, but...
Narumi Arisa
She's a local of Kamihama and knows books well!
Narumi Arisa
Isn't that quite reassuring?
Shion Chisato
... Despite that...
Narumi Arisa
Ask her! Okay?
Natsume Kako
Yes. Don't worry about that!
Shion Chisato
Eh~?
Shion Chisato
...
Shion Chisato
... Then...
Shion Chisato
Excuse me. Please help us...!
Natsume Kako
You're welcome!
Natsume Kako
My name is Natsume Kako!
Shion Chisato
I am Shion Chisato...
Narumi Arisa
I'm Narumi Arisa.
- Shion Chisato -
Hence Natsume Kako joined up with
our search of the picture book

Amano Suzune
...
Amano Suzune
(Tokiwa Nanaka... That person...)
- Amano Suzune -
Was staring at me...
- Amano Suzune -
The eyes attempting to confirm something...
were apparently suspecting me
- Amano Suzune -
I don't know the reason...
However, her way to put forward questions
suggested that I was watched cautiously more or less
Amano Suzune
(Why was I watched cautiously...)
Amano Suzune
(Because I am an unknown person?)
Amano Suzune
(… That's all…?)
Amano Suzune
(Sharp intuition...)
Amano Suzune
(If so, what kind of intuition did she have...?)
Amano Suzune
...
Amano Suzune
(... That person is also a magical girl...)
Amano Suzune
(This is the most convincing answer...)
Amano Suzune
(It's no more than an inference though...)
Amano Suzune
...
Amano Suzune
(... That's it, I won't change my manner)
Amano Suzune
(Magical girls pursue witches...)
Amano Suzune
(I'll spread a net there...)
Amano Suzune
(And if the person's coming, that means my inference is correct...)
Amano Suzune
(... But, just this...)
Amano Suzune
...
Amano Suzune
(It's closed...)
Amano Suzune
(In a labyrinth, it may turn out as what happened just now, so I'll stay outside...)
???
Ah-!
Amano Suzune
... Who!?
Awane Kokoro
Th-the same as that time...!
Awane Kokoro
(As I thought you came...!)
Amano Suzune
... This is...
Amano Suzune
(not an expected encounter though...)
Awane Kokoro
Wh-who are you anyway...!?
Amano Suzune
...
Awane Kokoro
Uwaa!
Awane Kokoro
... Can't you talk...
Awane Kokoro
Haa!
Amano Suzune
... Gu!
Awane Kokoro
If it's the case, who are you...
Awane Kokoro
I'll make you say even by force!

Chapter 5

Awane Kokoro
If it's the case, who are you...
Awane Kokoro
I'll make you say even by force!
Awane Kokoro
Take that!
Amano Suzune
...
Awane Kokoro
I won't be the same as that time...!
Amano Suzune
...
Amano Suzune
... Look so.
Awane Kokoro
... Waa!
Amano Suzune
... You won't escape this time
Awane Kokoro
... What... What are you doing, you!
Amano Suzune
...
Amano Suzune
I've heard your name...
Amano Suzune
So, I have nothing else to talk about...
Awane Kokoro
Kuu...!
Awane Kokoro
As, as for me...
Awane Kokoro
I insist that you say it out!
???
I'm curious about that too.
Awane Kokoro
... Eh!?
Amano Suzune
...
Amano Suzune
I thought so...
Amano Suzune
I guess I was right...
Tokiwa Nanaka
Yeah, me too...
Awane Kokoro
Who comes this time...?
Tokiwa Nanaka
I am Tokiwa Nanaka
Awane Kokoro
Magical... girl...?
Tokiwa Nanaka
True.
Tokiwa Nanaka
The same to you, I was chasing the reaction...
Tokiwa Nanaka
So I witnessed this scene here.
Tokiwa Nanaka
What's the situation?
Awane Kokoro
... I was attacked by that person.
Awane Kokoro
So I want to hear about the reason...
Tokiwa Nanaka
You were searching for her?
Awane Kokoro
... Yeah, kinda...
Tokiwa Nanaka
...
Tokiwa Nanaka
... I see...
Tokiwa Nanaka
... it seems.
Tokiwa Nanaka
Akira-san...
Amano Suzune
... Eh!?
Amano Suzune
... Really?...
Shinobu Akira
...
Amano Suzune
... You too...
Shinobu Akira
... Suzune-san... What happened?

- Shion Chisato -
Natsume Kako joined up with
our search of the picture book
Natsume Kako
Then...
Natsume Kako
I'll call my father's acquaintance who runs a second-hand bookstore
Natsume Kako
Then, we'll see if the picture book you are searching for is in stock.
Shion Chisato
Thank you for the trouble...
Natsume Kako
Please wait for a while. It'll take about 1 hour...
Narumi Arisa
Then, what to do during that time?
Narumi Arisa
... Ah, the sequel of the book I read just now...
Shion Chisato
Hold on, Arisa!
Shion Chisato
You make Kako-san work alone while doing nothing...!
Narumi Arisa
Nah, I was joking...
Shion Chisato
...
Shion Chisato
... Let's, search it again in the town.
Shion Chisato
It's not good to stay here doing nothing... We will be back in 1 hour.
Natsume Kako
No. Not at all. You don't have to...
Shion Chisato
Alright. Sorry, for real...
Shion Chisato
Let's go, Arisa...
Narumi Arisa
... Ah... Okay...
Natsume Kako
... Then, see you 1 hour later!
Narumi Arisa
Wait a moment...
Narumi Arisa
You... Aren't you walking too fast?
Shion Chisato
...
Shion Chisato
... You know that!…
Shion Chisato
What's wrong with your tone just now!?
Narumi Arisa
... I said it was a joke...
Shion Chisato
You need an appropriate time and occasion!
Shion Chisato
Arisa, you're always out of turn in that kind of situations...!
Narumi Arisa
...
Shion Chisato
And, you troubled Kako-san without any refraining...
Shion Chisato
You have to consider other people's feeling and...!
Narumi Arisa
... Enough! I knew that already!
Shion Chisato
Arisa...!
Narumi Arisa
... Can't you stop your nagging-!
Narumi Arisa
Then, I have something to say too...
Narumi Arisa
If you really want to search for it, that's not the occasion to refrain, right!
Narumi Arisa
When someone offering help, isn't it better to receive obediently!
Shion Chisato
... That's...!
Narumi Arisa
In that kind of situations, you are always considering weirdly...
Narumi Arisa
I too was using my brain!
Narumi Arisa
Since you, Chisato, said you want to find the picture book...!
Shion Chisato
... Arisa...
Narumi Arisa
...
Narumi Arisa
... I'll go back.
Narumi Arisa
... I'd rather read the book's sequel while waiting for Kako-san...
Shion Chisato
...
Shion Chisato
... I see...
Shion Chisato
I'll search outside...
Narumi Arisa
Oh...
Narumi Arisa
Bye, then...
Shion Chisato
... Ah...
Shion Chisato
(... Arisa...)

Shinobu Akira

Amano Suzune
...
Shinobu Akira
Are you... Attacking magical girls?
Amano Suzune
...
Shinobu Akira
That wound was...?
Amano Suzune
...
Shinobu Akira
Suzune-san!
Amano Suzune
...
Awane Kokoro
She says nothing no matter who's asking...!
Amano Suzune
(1 versus 3...)
Amano Suzune
(... No...)
Amano Suzune
(... Anyway, am I at disadvantage now...)
Amano Suzune
... Heat Haze.
Awane Kokoro
Eh!?
Shinobu Akira
Na...!
Tokiwa Nanaka
...
Awane Kokoro
... Sh-she'n not here...!
Tokiwa Nanaka
She escaped...
Shinobu Akira
...
Tokiwa Nanaka
...
Tokiwa Nanaka
... I guessed it right.
Shinobu Akira
... Yeah...
Tokiwa Nanaka
... First of all, let's calm down and think about the situation.
Shinobu Akira
... Yeah...
Shinobu Akira
But, I need some more time...
Shinobu Akira
Suzune-san, I met her just now though...
Shinobu Akira
... For that's a shock to me...
Tokiwa Nanaka
... I understood.
Tokiwa Nanaka
Then... What about you
Awane Kokoro
Ah, yes...!
Tokiwa Nanaka
What's your name?
Awane Kokoro
I'm Awane Kokoro...
Tokiwa Nanaka
Then...
Tokiwa Nanaka
What about the other one...?
Awane Kokoro
Eh...!?
Tokiwa Nanaka
... Just now, you saw someone, right?
Tokiwa Nanaka
What was the situation?
Awane Kokoro
... I was attacked by that one.
Awane Kokoro
As I asked her the reason...
Tokiwa Nanaka
Are you searching for her?
Awane Kokoro
... Yeah, well...
Tokiwa Nanaka
...
Awane Kokoro
... Ah...
Tokiwa Nanaka
She went to hide herself?
- ??? -
... No. I was waiting for the right timing
to catch the person just now...
Kagami Masara
... At last, we let her go though...
Tokiwa Nanaka
... Hello, nice to meet you.
Kagami Masara
You are Tokiwa Nanaka... If I recall correctly.
Tokiwa Nanaka
... Yeah...
Kagami Masara
I am Kagami Masara...

Amano Suzune
... Huh...
Amano Suzune
(... For the time being, I kept a distance...)
Amano Suzune
...

- Amano Suzune -
- Amano Suzune -
She did have an insight
into me
- Amano Suzune -
... Her intuition is incredibly sharp...
But it cannot explain it...
I'm afraid that it's her magic
That's a properer consideration
- Amano Suzune -
To what extent was she perceiving me...
Seems like a troublesome opponent...

Amano Suzune
(... Moreover...)

- Amano Suzune -
Awane Kokoro...
For twice I didn't manage to do away with her...

Amano Suzune
(... At that time...)

Awane Kokoro
Haa!
Amano Suzune
... It's useless.
Awane Kokoro
(I was repelled!)
Amano Suzune
Goodbye...
Amano Suzune
...Guu!
Awane Kokoro
It works ...?

Amano Suzune
(... Something was weird...)
Amano Suzune
(... Even if you see the situation of that girl, there was no doubt...)
Amano Suzune
(... It's possible...)
Amano Suzune
(Anyway, at the next time we meet... I'll definitely...)
Amano Suzune
...
Amano Suzune
(And then...)
- Amano Suzune -
Akira-san...
is a magical girl too...
Amano Suzune
(... What a pity...)
Amano Suzune
(... Despite the pity...)
Amano Suzune
(I have to...)

Amano Suzune
I'll continue this... Yet you don't stop me?
Kyuubey
Although I cannot understand your action, I won't stop you either.
Amano Suzune
... Are you waiting for the time when I get killed by someone else?
Kyuubey
I won't deny that either.

Amano Suzune
(I can't stop doing that...)
Amano Suzune
(According to Kyuubey...)
Amano Suzune
(No... According to Incubators!)
Amano Suzune
(To break the nightmarish chain that involved all of us...)
Amano Suzune
(I must end of all of them...!)
Amano Suzune
(Witches... Familiars...)
Amano Suzune
(And... those who will finally become witches...)
Amano Suzune
(... Magical girls!)
Amano Suzune
(Akira-san, I'm sorry, but...)

Shion Chisato
...
Shion Chisato
... I see...
Shion Chisato
I'll search outside...
Narumi Arisa
Oh...
Narumi Arisa
Bye, then...

- Narumi Arisa -

I finally flared up too...
- Narumi Arisa -
Although I was not planning
to do so...
- Narumi Arisa -
Anyway I
went back to Natsume Bookstore...
Narumi Arisa
...
Natsume Kako
What? Isn't it too early now?
Natsume Kako
1 hour hasn't passed yet...
Narumi Arisa
... We have just... gone separately.
Natsume Kako
Is that so...
Natsume Kako
Ah, that's it! That one!
Natsume Kako
Let me cut to the chase, I got some good news...!
Narumi Arisa

Natsume Kako
... Here it is...
Narumi Arisa

Natsume Kako
... Well~...
Narumi Arisa
... Ah, sorry...
Narumi Arisa
What's wrong...?
Natsume Kako
... Ng~...
Natsume Kako
... What's up?
Narumi Arisa
... Eh?
Narumi Arisa

Narumi Arisa

(is that because I got anxious after entering an unknown town... I...)
Shion Chisato
...
- Shion Chisato -
Come to think of it, it was because of I
that we came to Kamihama...
- Shion Chisato -
Arisa went with me...
Shion Chisato
Today, why coming with me?
Narumi Arisa
Well... Because I am free?
Shion Chisato
... Oh.
Narumi Arisa
...
Narumi Arisa
... What's more... Because I got curious?
Narumi Arisa
About the picture book... you are searching for... which was drawn by Chisato's father...

Shion Chisato
...
Shion Chisato
(... Although she said she was free)
Shion Chisato
(She was searching carefully...)
Shion Chisato
(Arisa...)

Narumi Arisa
I too was using my brain!
Narumi Arisa
Since you, Chisato, said you want to find the picture book...!

Shion Chisato
...
Shion Chisato
(... Yes, I did said too harshly...)
Shion Chisato
... I was so stupid! For real...!
Uwaa!
Shion Chisato
... Ah!
... Kinda scared me...
Shion Chisato
So-sorry...
Hah, hahh...
(... Scary...)
Shion Chisato
...
Shion Chisato
(... Anyway...)
Shion Chisato
(... Things shouldn't be like this...)

Chun Meiyui
... Is that so...
Chun Meiyui
I have gotten a general understanding of the circumstance.
Chun Meiyui
Awane Kokoro and...
Chun Meiyui
Kagami Masara, right...
Tokiwa Nanaka
You must be Chun...
Chun Meiyui
Meiyui, right.
Awane Kokoro
Ah, well... Nice to meet you...
Kagami Masara
Thanks...
Chun Meiyui
Nanaka, you saw through it well.
Chun Meiyui
The attempt of that magical girl, whose name is Suzune.
Tokiwa Nanaka
... That's the power of my magic.
Chun Meiyui
... What is that about?
Chun Meiyui
Nanaka's magic, I guess it is discovering the target of revenge. Isn't it?
Tokiwa Nanaka
It is...
Tokiwa Nanaka
However, I can fell some issues concerning them too.
Tokiwa Nanaka
Which means, things about my revenge... and obstacles on the way are also included.
Chun Meiyui
... Haha... 'Cos they might finally border you... Right...
Tokiwa Nanaka
...
Awane Kokoro
Revenge...?
Chun Meiyui
... Ah, don't you know? Well, let's talk about it later...
Chun Meiyui
By the way...
Chun Meiyui
Was she really wanting to kill?
Awane Kokoro
... I don't think it can be wrong...
Awane Kokoro
Each attack was really fierce and was aiming at the opponent's throat...
Kagami Masara
I also approached her, planning to make myself invisible and attack her blind side...
Kagami Masara
But I didn't have any extra effort left after following Kokoro...
Awane Kokoro
Besides... I guess I felt... a quite horrible... determination or something...
Awane Kokoro
That's sort of... bloodlust, right...
Shinobu Akira
...
Chun Meiyui
... without knowing the reason?
Awane Kokoro
Yeah...
Awane Kokoro
So, together with Masara, we two supposed we should go to ask for the reason...
Tokiwa Nanaka
Then you went again to chase the witch's reaction.
Kagami Masara
I didn't think we have other options...
Tokiwa Nanaka
But, after hearing this, I think I worked out the correct answer.
Tokiwa Nanaka
To kill magical girls who chased the witches...
Tokiwa Nanaka
That's apparently Suzune-san's basic aim.
Shinobu Akira
Nanaka... What are you going to do?
Tokiwa Nanaka
...
Shinobu Akira
You called for Meiyui for that reason, right?
Tokiwa Nanaka
... That's true.
Tokiwa Nanaka
Although we don't know her reason for setting her sight on magical girl...
Tokiwa Nanaka
Obviously, she is an extremely dangerous opponent of us.
Chun Meiyui
Certainly so.
Chun Meiyui
I understood that just by listening to your talk. That person is someone like the bane.
Shinobu Akira
...
Tokiwa Nanaka
The obstacle needs to be taken down.
Tokiwa Nanaka
If not, we will take the damage undoubtedly.
Tokiwa Nanaka
In a sense, Suzune-san is...
Tokiwa Nanaka
... an equivalent to "disaster"...
Shinobu Akira
... It means... an equivalent to witches...
Tokiwa Nanaka
Yes...
Kagami Masara
... Possibly...
Awane Kokoro
Yeah...
Shinobu Akira
...
Shinobu Akira
Huhh...
Shinobu Akira
... I want to try another talk with Suzune-san...
Tokiwa Nanaka
... Akira-san, permit me to give my idea...
Tokiwa Nanaka
I don't think she is the type of people to whom you can have a discussion easily.
Tokiwa Nanaka
She hid an incredibly powerful preparedness in her eyes.
Tokiwa Nanaka
Just a little bit of carelessness on our side would lead to...
Shinobu Akira
I understand.
Shinobu Akira
If there were a short period of time... when I could ask her...
Shinobu Akira
And I wish I could have a talk... to some extent...
Tokiwa Nanaka
... When the dialogue runs into a brick wall...?
Shinobu Akira
... I'll fight with all my strength.
Tokiwa Nanaka
... I see.
Tokiwa Nanaka
... Kokoro-san and Masara-san, how do you think?
Tokiwa Nanaka
Do you two want to know the reason of being attacked too?
Awane Kokoro
...
Kagami Masara
... Let's stop, Kokoro.
Awane Kokoro
... Yeah.
Awane Kokoro
If we don't protect ourselves in the first place...
Awane Kokoro
... that will be really dangerous...
Kagami Masara
... Okay? Kokoro...
Awane Kokoro
... Ye-yes...! I have to pull myself together...!
Kagami Masara
...
Kagami Masara
So then... Any idea...?
Tokiwa Nanaka
Yes... I got one.
Tokiwa Nanaka
My plan to let Suzune-san's appearance be widespread...
Tokiwa Nanaka
Kokoro-san
Tokiwa Nanaka
Akira-san
Tokiwa Nanaka
and I
Tokiwa Nanaka
and finally, Meiyui-san's powers are necessary for this.
Chun Meiyui
Okay.
Tokiwa Nanaka
And then...
Tokiwa Nanaka
Masara-san too...
Kagami Masara
... What should I do?
Tokiwa Nanaka
That is...

- Narumi Arisa -
I had an argument
with Chisato over some trifles...
- Narumi Arisa -
Dragging on that thing
I went back to Natsume Bookstore

Natsume Kako
... What's up?
Narumi Arisa
... Eh?
Narumi Arisa
...
Narumi Arisa
... My face betrays me...
Natsume Kako
... Yes...
Narumi Arisa
... Just a bit...
Narumi Arisa
... Well, sometimes it does! Never mind!
Natsume Kako
...
Natsume Kako
... No...
Natsume Kako
I mind that!

- Narumi Arisa -
Kako-san hit the mark and saw right through it...
- Narumi Arisa -
... Well, I was also having an apparent look
on my face though...
- Narumi Arisa -
Anyway, although it was embarrassing
I told it to Kako-san...
- Narumi Arisa -
... Possibly because I wanted to talk to someone...
Natsume Kako
... Is that so? That kind of quarrel...
Narumi Arisa
Things like... it can't be helped!
Narumi Arisa
Things have been like this by far... for us...
Narumi Arisa
We had a fight when first met too...
Natsume Kako
... Eh?
Narumi Arisa
... Ah, we-well. Let's put that aside...
Narumi Arisa
... Anyway, kind of like tit for tat...
Natsume Kako
...
Natsume Kako
... But, Arisa-san. I could feel that you...
Natsume Kako
Arisa-san, was searching carefully too...
Natsume Kako
for the picture book Chisato-san was searching for...!
Narumi Arisa
...
Natsume Kako
Weren't you?
Narumi Arisa
... We-well...
Narumi Arisa
... because we came to search for the book!
Narumi Arisa
The picture book Chisato was so curious about...
Natsume Kako
... Yes...! So then...!
Narumi Arisa
... Ah...
Natsume Kako
... Eh?
Natsume Kako
Ah! Chisato-san!
Shion Chisato
... Hi...

Amano Suzune
...
Amano Suzune
... Hello.
Shinobu Akira
... You came as I expected.
Amano Suzune
I didn't know there was anyone here, but I had to have a look at here.
Shinobu Akira
Because I am possibly here?
Amano Suzune
... Or Tokiwa Nanaka.
Shinobu Akira
When you find anyone... What are you gonna do?
Amano Suzune
Assault when she is alone.
Amano Suzune
For I prefer fighting individually.
Shinobu Akira
... You are aiming at us, right...
Amano Suzune
...
Amano Suzune
Not only you.
Amano Suzune
But also magical girls, all...
Shinobu Akira
Kill... them all?
Amano Suzune
...
Shinobu Akira
... For what? Why are you doing that!?
Shinobu Akira
Tell me the reason!
Amano Suzune
... Reason...
Amano Suzune
Such a thing, you're better not knowing.
Shinobu Akira
... Dammit!
Shinobu Akira
... You are unwilling to say anything, really...
Amano Suzune
...
Shinobu Akira
Right...
Shinobu Akira
If that's the case... We don't have things to talk about anymore...
Shinobu Akira
Sorry but... I
Shinobu Akira
am not broad-minded enough to be killed without knowing the reason!
Amano Suzune
... Do it here?
Amano Suzune
I don't mind in particular though.
Shinobu Akira
... Go there.
Shinobu Akira
Where I met you...

Amano Suzune
... Then...
Amano Suzune
I'll end it...
Shinobu Akira
You'll end it...?
Shinobu Akira
But I will end what you're doing!

- Tokiwa Nanaka -
So...
Tokiwa Nanaka
it began...

Narumi Arisa
... Ah...
Natsume Kako
... Eh?
Natsume Kako
Ah! Chisato-san!
Shion Chisato
... Hi...
Narumi Arisa
...
Shion Chisato
...
Natsume Kako
...
Natsume Kako
(... Okay!)
Natsume Kako
Well, Chisato-san!
Shion Chisato
Ye-yes...!?
Natsume Kako
Arisa-san is serious!
Shion Chisato
Eh...?
Narumi Arisa
Wa-wait! Kako-san!
Natsume Kako
About that... Arisa-san's behavior made Chisato-san angry...
Shion Chisato
... Eh, ah... You heard... about that...
Natsume Kako
Yes, from Arisa.
Narumi Arisa
...Nah, welp...
Natsume Kako
First of all, I don't mind it at all!
Natsume Kako
Instead, I am happy! For I have the opportunity to take part!
Shion Chisato
Kako-san...
Narumi Arisa
...
Natsume Kako
And then, I talked with Arisa-san and felt that...
Natsume Kako
Arisa-san was searching for the picture book genuinely too...!
Shion Chisato
... We-well...
Natsume Kako
... Yes?
Shion Chisato
... Kako-san, thank you.
Shion Chisato
I calmed down... and understood it too.
Shion Chisato
Well... Arisa...
Shion Chisato
I'm sorry... I speak too harshly...
Narumi Arisa
Chisato...
Shion Chisato
together...
Shion Chisato
You came here to search together with me, right...
Narumi Arisa
...
Narumi Arisa
... I am also...
Narumi Arisa
... somewhat...
Narumi Arisa
... sorry...
Shion Chisato
Arisa...
Natsume Kako
... That's...
Natsume Kako
... great! …You made up with each other!
Shion Chisato
Ah... Well...
Shion Chisato
... Yeah...
Narumi Arisa
... Welp... Right...!
Natsume Kako
That's good...
Natsume Kako
The book enhances your relationship!... Right!
Shion Chisato
...It... does...
Narumi Arisa
... Let's just suppose so...!
Shion Chisato
... Ye!
Natsume Kako
... Ha~... Then it's all settled...
Natsume Kako
...
Natsume Kako
... Not yet! That's it, that's it!
Natsume Kako
Well! I got some information!
Shion Chisato
Information...!?

Amano Suzune
... Then...
Amano Suzune
I'll end it...
Shinobu Akira
You'll end it...?
Shinobu Akira
But I will end what you're doing!
Amano Suzune
... Ku...
Amano Suzune
(So fast...)
Shinobu Akira
That's iiiiit!
Amano Suzune
... This is...!
Amano Suzune
(The opponent has too many moves... Having close combat is disadvantageous...)
Amano Suzune
(In that case...)
Shinobu Akira
(Swords... That many!?)
Amano Suzune
... Flame Dance!
Shinobu Akira
... Seaa!
Shinobu Akira
... Huh~...
Amano Suzune
...
Amano Suzune
(... All were shot down...)
Amano Suzune
(... Formidable)
Shinobu Akira
In return!
Amano Suzune
...!
Tokiwa Nanaka
...
Chun Meiyui
How is the battle going on?
Tokiwa Nanaka
... Even match.
Chun Meiyui
... First, we expected that she would come here following the thread of Akira.
Chun Meiyui
That one hit exactly.
Tokiwa Nanaka
Because Suzune-san doesn't have too many clues.
Tokiwa Nanaka
If she aims at us again, that is the right thread...
Chun Meiyui
... And as a result, we let Akira fight...?
Tokiwa Nanaka
... We respected her intention though.
Chun Meiyui
...
Chun Meiyui
…Well it's fine.
Tokiwa Nanaka
...
Chun Meiyui
Then the timing has not yet come?
Tokiwa Nanaka
Not yet.
Tokiwa Nanaka
Until Akira-san exhaust herself...

Natsume Kako
Well! I got some information!
Shion Chisato
Information...!?
Natsume Kako
Yes, that's right!
Natsume Kako
I'll call my father's acquaintance...
Natsume Kako
And heard this from him...

A man in a secondhand bookstore
Picture book...?
A man in a secondhand bookstore
We are not dealing with any in particular though...
A man in a secondhand bookstore
...
A man in a secondhand bookstore
Ah-... But, about the picture books...
A man in a secondhand bookstore
Oh no, I saw some before...

Shion Chisato
... Recycle shop?
Natsume Kako
Yes!
Narumi Arisa
There we can find... that picture book?
Natsume Kako
No... The title is yet to...
Natsume Kako
However! It seems that the nearby recycle shop...
Natsume Kako
is selling a huge amount of picture books!
Natsume Kako
He said that it was originally a secondhand bookstore too...
Natsume Kako
but its business deteriorated, and it changed into a recycle shop...
Natsume Kako
There, a bunch of overstocks is on sale all at once!
Shion Chisato
Is that so...!
Narumi Arisa
I see... I only thought about secondhand bookstores…
Narumi Arisa
And didn't notice that there is another pattern like that...!
Natsume Kako
What's more, as a former secondhand bookstore, both its goods and prices are pretty good...
Natsume Kako
That being the case, it's... possible...!
Shion Chisato
Kako-san... Thank you...!
Narumi Arisa
You help us a lot...!
Natsume Kako
... But we have yet to find...
Natsume Kako
Anyway, let's go there. To that store!
Narumi Arisa
O-kay!
Shion Chisato
Yeah!

Awane Kokoro
Ha!
Amano Suzune
... One more over here?
Awane Kokoro
This is the third time... Amano Suzune!
Amano Suzune
You are allying with Tokiwa Nanaka.
Tokiwa Nanaka
That's true.
Tokiwa Nanaka
Would you please resign? Suzune-san.
Amano Suzune
(... There is not much magic power left...)
Amano Suzune
(I'm reluctant but... I have to retreat again here...)
Shinobu Akira
... Not yet...
Tokiwa Nanaka
... Akira-san?
Shinobu Akira
It hasn't ended yet!
Amano Suzune

Shinobu Akira
Uwaaaa!
Tokiwa Nanaka
That's unreasonable! Akira-san!

Following information Kako got
We headed for the recycle shop...!
Natsume Kako
Well...
Natsume Kako
I see! This way!
Shion Chisato
... Then...
Shion Chisato
... Excuse me!
Storekeeper
Yes yes~
Shion Chisato
We are searching for a picture book...
Storekeeper
A picture book. Picture books are...
Storekeeper
Yes, over here.
Storekeeper
Right now, we are selling all stock with variety.
Shion Chisato
Thank you very much...!
Natsume Kako
Really... So many...
Narumi Arisa
Okay...
Narumi Arisa
Let's begin the search!

- Shion Chisato -
In the mountain-high pile of picture books
we checked on after another...
Shion Chisato
... Not this one...
... Neither this one...
Natsume Kako
This is a fair amount of them...
Narumi Arisa
... Beauty diet 365 Days...?
Narumi Arisa
There are books other than picture books too...!
- Shion Chisato -
... Then...
Narumi Arisa
... Hm?
Narumi Arisa
... There are a few books sandwiched in the gap between the bookshelves...?
Shion Chisato
... Ah! There are...!
Narumi Arisa
Let's... pull...
Narumi Arisa
... Got it out!
Narumi Arisa
... Hmm let me...
Shion Chisato
... Ah!
Narumi Arisa
Ah!
Natsume Kako
Ah!
Shion Chisato
Here it is...!

- Shion Chisato -
We finally
found the picture book we were looking for
Shion Chisato
Here it is...!
- Shion Chisato -
O-Dango-Kun's Adventure
out
- Shion Chisato -
In no time I
bought the picture book...!
- Shion Chisato -
Although at its corresponding price…
- Shion Chisato -
I got it anyway
Narumi Arisa
Okay! Let's read it straight off!
Shion Chisato
Yeah!
Shion Chisato
... Ah, but
Storekeeper
... Are you looking for anything else?
Shion Chisato
But here is...
Natsume Kako
Then, let's go back to my store!

- Shion Chisato -
Therefore...
- Shion Chisato -
We agreed with Kako-san's proposal
and decided to confirm it in Natsume Bookstore...!
Shion Chisato
Finally, I found it...
Narumi Arisa
Good for you, Chisato!
Shion Chisato
Yeah...
Shion Chisato
Thanks! Arisa...!
Narumi Arisa
... Welp-, you can express your appreciation in some other way~
Shion Chisato
Haha... Alright!
Shion Chisato
The next time I'll treat you with Taiyaki!
Narumi Arisa
O! Good! Then, that's a deal!
Shion Chisato
Yes yes, leave it to me!
Shion Chisato
... Then... Kako-san
Shion Chisato
Thank you... for helping us so much...!
Natsume Kako
That's great... Really...
Natsume Kako
When you want to read a book and make your best effort to search for it...
Natsume Kako
And you got it somewhere! ... Kinda like that...
Natsume Kako
As a book lover, I'm glad that I witnessed the cool scene...
Natsume Kako
Likewise, I am thankful!
Shion Chisato
You don't have to...
Narumi Arisa
... Thank you for helping us.
Narumi Arisa
And moreover... lending me an ear.
Natsume Kako
Arisa-san...
Natsume Kako
... You're welcome.
Narumi Arisa
... So...! Haha...!
Natsume Kako
Okay, let's read the picture book!
Shion Chisato
That's it...!
Shion Chisato
Then...!
- Shion Chisato -
I read the picture book
as if I was seeking my own memory.
- Shion Chisato -
... I read...
- Shion Chisato -
And then...
I finished reading...
- Shion Chisato -
... But...
Shion Chisato
...
Narumi Arisa
... How is it?
Shion Chisato
...
Shion Chisato
... How can I say that...
Shion Chisato
...
Shion Chisato
... A weird picture book...
Narumi Arisa
...
Narumi Arisa
Hah~!?
Natsume Kako
No more... comment?
Shion Chisato
... Even if I read it...
Shion Chisato
Even if I read it I couldn't recall anything anymore...
Narumi Arisa
No, no, wait!
Narumi Arisa
... Ah, that's it! What is the story about?
Shion Chisato
... Like... At first, there is Dango-kun...
Shion Chisato
who escapes from a Japanese confectionery store and starts his adventure...
Shion Chisato
Dango-kun meets Kusa Dango-kun and Sakura Dango-kun halfway...
[Note] Kusa means grass in Japanese.
Shion Chisato
They become Tricolor Dango-kun, and, are eaten finally...
Narumi Arisa
...
Narumi Arisa
... What does that story mean!?
Shion Chisato
It's weird... How can the picture book be that...
Natsume Kako
Let, let's read it once again!
Narumi Arisa
Ah! What about reading reversely?
Shion Chisato
... Is that, meaningful...
Narumi Arisa
A-nyway let's try anything!
Shion Chisato
... Ye, that's true!
Shion Chisato
Well, then, from the last page...
Shion Chisato
...
Shion Chisato
... Ah-!
Narumi Arisa
What's wrong!?
Shion Chisato
... Is that the case...!

Amano Suzune
The magic of invisibility... right?
Amano Suzune
... Despite that, I felt some weak magic power.
Kagami Masara

Amano Suzune
And... It's because I use similar magic that I understood this...
Kagami Masara
What are...!
Amano Suzune
Heat Haze...
Kagami Masara
The magic at that moment...?
Amano Suzune
What's your... name?
Kagami Masara

took place in an inconspicuous place

Right after that, I...

Amano Suzune

Amano Suzune
(... Most of the magic power was used up...)
Amano Suzune
(After the recovery, what should I do...)
Amano Suzune
(What...?)
Whoops... Gosh... I turned on the flashlight...
Hey, she is looking at here...
Amano Suzune
...
Amano Suzune
... Why are you taking my photos?
... Haha...
Well... Are you running away from home?
Amano Suzune
Running away from home...?
Ah-... Look, this.
Amano Suzune
(... SNS?)
This is a Kamihama local community...
Here it is written, right? Which says "Searching for the missing person".
All the characteristics written here match yours.
Like your uniform, your hairstyle...
Amano Suzune
... Eh!?
Amano Suzune
(... That's true...)
So! I thought "Wow, really, she is here!"...
And took photos without hesitation...
But didn't I say it's not good to shoot abruptly?
Ah, shame on you! It was I who noticed her first!
Amano Suzune
(What is going on...!?)
Amano Suzune
(... Anyway...)
Amano Suzune
... Those photos, delete them.
Eh? ... No, but...
Amano Suzune
Delete them
Amano Suzune
... Now.
Ah, yes~...
... Okay, see? All were deleted.
Amano Suzune
... Don't seek me anymore.
Amano Suzune
Bye...
... Dreadful~
Her stare was terribly sharp...
Oh, no~ That's awful...
... Let's post something.
You...
Because she was an awful girl, I wanted to sound a warning.
"Her stare was very awful!" ... That's it!

Amano Suzune
...
...
...
Amano Suzune
(Are they looking at here...?)
Amano Suzune
...
Amano Suzune
(Nah, am I being over-conscious...)
Amano Suzune
(... But...)
Wait!
Amano Suzune
Eh!?
Excuse me, well~...
Amano Suzune
...!
Ah!
... I was just going to ask the way...
Amano Suzune
Hah... Hah...
Amano Suzune
...
Amano Suzune
(What... is happening...?)
Amano Suzune
(Who is in search of me...?)
Amano Suzune
(... Who set all these up)
Amano Suzune
...

- Amano Suzune -
... Tokiwa Nanaka...
Probably, I am afraid...
If so, is that for finding me out...?
- Amano Suzune -
... No. Such an open approach to searching
is likely to give rise to more troubles in the future...
- Amano Suzune -
For some other purpose...?
- Amano Suzune -
...
... Or perhaps...
- Amano Suzune -
From Kamihama I will be...

Amano Suzune
...
Amano Suzune
(... If she was such an opponent to take such a method...)
Amano Suzune
(... Then the hollowness of the battle just now was also...)
Amano Suzune
...
Amano Suzune
... Should I turn back...
Amano Suzune
...
- Amano Suzune -
... Anyhow, things became more troublesome...
- Amano Suzune -
Although it was a local community
there is a risk that it might spread out
If such a thing happens, it'll be more troublesome...
Amano Suzune
...
Amano Suzune
I'll leave Kamihama...

- Shion Chisato -
Finally, I found it
O-Dango-Kun's Adventure...!
- Shion Chisato -
But, I couldn't remember anything about it anymore...
- Shion Chisato -
However... On Airisa's advice
We tried reading reversely...
- Shion Chisato -
I realized the reason
why I found this picture book so appealing...!
Shion Chisato
... Ah-!
Narumi Arisa
What's up!?
Shion Chisato
... Is that so...!
Natsume Kako
Did you recall anything!?
Shion Chisato
... Here...
Natsume Kako
... Here?
Natsume Kako
Ah, it's the imprint...
Narumi Arisa
Imprint...?
Natsume Kako
The last page of the book where the author and the publisher are credited...
Narumi Arisa
Ah-, that page
Natsume Kako
That imprint's...
Natsume Kako
... Ah!
Narumi Arisa
Anything wrote there!?
Narumi Arisa
... This...!
Narumi Arisa
"SHION CHISATO"...
Narumi Arisa
... which means Chisato, you!?
Shion Chisato
... I remembered that…
Shion Chisato
This O-Dango-Kun...
Shion Chisato
was drawn by me...
Narumi Arisa
... Eh!
Natsume Kako
Is, is that so!?
- Shion Chisato -
Yes... The character is scribbled by me when I was little.
- Shion Chisato -
Technically, it was my father who turned that scribble
into a character in the picture book...
Narumi Arisa
Then...
Narumi Arisa
He drew the character basing on Chisato's scribble...
Natsume Kako
Then how was the plot weaved...?
Shion Chisato
Maybe I said something...
Shion Chisato
Although I can't recall that clearly...
Shion Chisato
About the drawing, I remembered it clearly...
Narumi Arisa
So a mere cover attracted you...
Shion Chisato
Why... dad...?
Natsume Kako
...
Natsume Kako
... Isn't that because your father loved you, Chisato-san, very much?
Shion Chisato
... Love me very much...?
Narumi Arisa
... Yeah, that's right...
Narumi Arisa
Didn't he want to draw a picture book with you?
Shion Chisato
With me...
Natsume Kako
Chisato-san's father was known for a fanciful style, right?...
Shion Chisato
Yes...
Natsume Kako
It's possible that Chisato-san's drawing or words struck his heartstring...
Natsume Kako
so he drew this picture book...
Natsume Kako
But, as for Chisato-san's name credited on the imprint...
Natsume Kako
I guess it was supposed to mean... like "This is a parent-child creation".
Shion Chisato
Parent-child...
Narumi Arisa
I share the same feeling...
Narumi Arisa
... Ah...
Narumi Arisa
(... Is that so...)
Narumi Arisa
(... Actually, I share the same feeling, but...)
Narumi Arisa
(With her wish, Chisato...)
Shion Chisato
...
Natsume Kako
Chisato-san...
Natsume Kako
(... She's weeping...)
- Shion Chisato -
This picture book is a record of the past of
my father, a picture book author who drew in the hope of the future
and I, the daughter of him
- Shion Chisato -
... Thinking so
my heart was filled with
guilty again...
- Shion Chisato -
And
unconsciously, my tears ran down...
Shion Chisato
... Dad...
Shion Chisato
(I... I...!)
Natsume Kako
.. Ahh...
Narumi Arisa
...
Narumi Arisa
... It was good for you, Chisato.
Shion Chisato
... Go...od...?
Narumi Arisa
Yeah... Good, Chisato.
Shion Chisato
Arisa... I...!
Narumi Arisa
It left you some wonderful memories...
Narumi Arisa
They won't disappear... then...
Shion Chisato
... Won't... Disappear...
Narumi Arisa
... Chisato...
Narumi Arisa
... That's your treasure, the picture book.
When my heart was about to crumble
It was Arisa's tenderness that supported me...
- Shion Chisato -
... In, that instant.
Shion Chisato
Arisa...
Shion Chisato
Arisa...!
Narumi Arisa
Wai...! Ouch!
- Shion Chisato -
Holding Arisa tightly
I continued to shed tears
- Shion Chisato -
Thus, our search for the picture book
came to an end...

Amano Suzune
Tell me, your name...
Kagami Masara
...
Kagami Masara
Kagami... Masara...
Amano Suzune
So...
Amano Suzune
Goodbye... Kagami Masara...
Kagami Masara
... Ah... Ku...
Amano Suzune
...
Amano Suzune
... With this, by now...
Amano Suzune
All...
Amano Suzune
... Okay.
Amano Suzune
Soul gems are all broken too...
Amano Suzune
... Goodbye, Everyone...

- Chun Meiyui -
...
- Chun Meiyui -
... Huh...
- Chun Meiyui -
... Seems that she's gone
Chun Meiyui
It was undoubtedly successful.
Chun Meiyui
... Nanaka.
Tokiwa Nanaka
Seems so.
Shinobu Akira
...
Awane Kokoro
Awesome...
Kagami Masara
Is that your magic...
Chun Meiyui
Yeah, it is.
Chun Meiyui
The magic to "disguise facts"...
Tokiwa Nanaka
Sounds very convenient to do anything from the perspective of Meiyui-san.
Chun Meiyui
... What the meaning?
Awane Kokoro
However... Is that really alright?
Chun Meiyui
... All things, peoples and so on about the disguise should be nearby though.
Chun Meiyui
That's the premise of this magic. It's troublesome, but very effective.
Chun Meiyui
What is engraved is not illusion, but only "facts".
Tokiwa Nanaka
Besides...
Tokiwa Nanaka
She notice the presence of Masara-san as expected.
Kagami Masara
... That's so...
Tokiwa Nanaka
Rather than 3 people, there were 4 including Masara-san.
Tokiwa Nanaka
Which dissolved her doubts and contributed to the authenticity, I guess.
Tokiwa Nanaka
The battle with Akira-chan too, consumed her magic power...
Shinobu Akira
...
Tokiwa Nanaka
In that inadequate condition, her mind might be narrow too.
Tokiwa Nanaka
... Meiyui-san, how is your preparation?
Chun Meiyui
... Yeah, look.
Awane Kokoro
... Kamihama's SNS?
Tokiwa Nanaka
Assisted by Meiyui-san's friends...
Chun Meiyui
That's Soukai Gang.
Tokiwa Nanaka
... Assisted by everybody in Soukai Gang for assistance, we keep her record.
Kagami Masara
... In order to corner Amano Suzune?
Tokiwa Nanaka
Just the opposite.
Tokiwa Nanaka
We want everybody in Soukai Gang to search for her.
Tokiwa Nanaka
But, just in a rough‐and‐ready manner...
Kagami Masara
Rough-and-ready...?
Tokiwa Nanaka
We cast the net slowly and leave her some leeway to escape.
Awane Kokoro
Escape... That means...
Tokiwa Nanaka
... If we start something with that one, someone is going to die.
Tokiwa Nanaka
... How did you feel? Akira-san. About the battle.
Shinobu Akira
... Too awful.
Shinobu Akira
She was really awful, and... not sparing any effort during her attacks...
Shinobu Akira
I got that very quickly...
Shinobu Akira
She was attempting to kill me... That's to say.
Tokiwa Nanaka
...
Tokiwa Nanaka
... Casualties on our side should be avoided by any mean
Tokiwa Nanaka
In spite of that..
Tokiwa Nanaka
Starting anything with that person should be avoided by any means too...
Shinobu Akira
Nanaka...
Awane Kokoro
When it comes to emergency! ... That's not reasonable either, right...
Awane Kokoro
To kill... anyone...
Kagami Masara
...
Chun Meiyui
Thus, that is to say... letting her out is the best.
Tokiwa Nanaka
Yes.
Tokiwa Nanaka
... Akira-san, I was sorry.
Tokiwa Nanaka
As a result, I took advantage of your feeling toward Suzune-san.
Shinobu Akira
... Nah, that's okay.
Shinobu Akira
We had just talk a little and I was somewhat too confidence,
Shinobu Akira
not realizing that Suzune-san was such a person...
Shinobu Akira
... But, I was wrong.
Shinobu Akira
If I keep being trapped in my prejudices...
Shinobu Akira
someday things may become irretrievable...
Shinobu Akira
... You didn't call Kako in order to protect her?
Tokiwa Nanaka
... Because it's better for us to expose less faces of ours to her.
Shinobu Akira
... Nanaka is calm, always... Unlike me, you have a general view...
Shinobu Akira
I'm... good at nothing...
Tokiwa Nanaka
Akira-san, that's...
Kagami Masara
It does no good to compare to anyone else and humiliate yourself, right?
Shinobu Akira
Eh...?
Kagami Masara
Because you are who you are.
Kagami Masara
You don't need to think about... what if you could be like someone else.
Kagami Masara
Focus at the result and think about what should you do as yourself... That's all.
Shinobu Akira
…………
Awane Kokoro
... Ah,well... That sounds like comforting...
Chun Meiyui
... That's quite cool gentleness.
Kagami Masara
... The result came with you...
Kagami Masara
was the battle in which you won... just now.
Kagami Masara
Consequently, Kokoro was saved too... Thanks.
Awane Kokoro
... Right! Thanks!
Shinobu Akira
... Masara-san, Kokoro-san...
Tokiwa Nanaka
That's right, Akira-san.
Tokiwa Nanaka
... Besides...
Tokiwa Nanaka
It doesn't mean all are concluded, about the person...
Tokiwa Nanaka
From now on, we should be on our guard against her too.
Shinobu Akira
... Right.
Kagami Masara
It's... only a stopgap?...
Awane Kokoro
... Hum...
Chun Meiyui
... By the way, Nanaka, I am concerned about something.
Tokiwa Nanaka
Concerned about something...?

Chapter 11

Section 37

18:52 / 19:53 ⇒


Chun Meiyui
... By the way, Nanaka, I am concerned about something.
Tokiwa Nanaka
Concerned about something...?
Chun Meiyui
... Ye...
Chun Meiyui
That girl, when killing each one, was carefully aiming.
Tokiwa Nanaka
... At what?
Chun Meiyui
At... soul gems...
Tokiwa Nanaka
Soul gems...
Chun Meiyui
My magic, for it puts someone under a delusion, it basically progresses in accordance with the will of the person.
Chun Meiyui
Although the result is oriented by my side, the process is dominated by the side receiving the magic.
Chun Meiyui
I am sure that during that, she aimed at soul gems.
Tokiwa Nanaka
... Is that so...
Chun Meiyui
... Welp, that's probably just because of her carefulness...
Chun Meiyui
Since soul gems, proofs of magical girls, are also the source of magic power...
Tokiwa Nanaka
...
Chun Meiyui
And, one more thing.
Chun Meiyui
... Although this is something baseless...
Chun Meiyui
I guess someone already tampered the girl's memory, possibly...
Tokiwa Nanaka
... That's...!
Chun Meiyui
But! That's no more than my perception...
Chun Meiyui
I just kinda felt that I received such a noise...
Chun Meiyui
Anyway, I decided to inform you, Nanaka...
Tokiwa Nanaka
... Thank you very much...
Tokiwa Nanaka
... I also... need you, Meiyui-san...
Tokiwa Nanaka
to do me another favor.
Chun Meiyui
... What?

Narumi Arisa
Uwa-... It's already night.
Shion Chisato
I'm sorry, for making you going with me so late...
Narumi Arisa
It doesn't matter.
Narumi Arisa
Since you'll treat me with taiyaki~
Shion Chisato
Haha...Feel free to have as many as you want!
Narumi Arisa
Ah~, that's what you said~...
Narumi Arisa
Then... 100!
Shion Chisato
... Wa-wait! Shouldn't you have a limit!
Narumi Arisa
Because, you said I can have as many as I want, right!
Shion Chisato
I was just blurting or...
Shion Chisato
In the first place! How can you eat 100 up!
Shion Chisato
Arisa, if you keep saying things that bluntly, you'll...!
Narumi Arisa
Preaching again~?
Shion Chisato
Ah!... No...
Shion Chisato
Anyway!
Narumi Arisa
Ah- that's enough. Okay. Go back, go back!
Narumi Arisa
Whoosh from Kamihama City to Hozuki City!
???
... Hozuki City...
Shion Chisato
We are not gonna go by plane but by train...
Shion Chisato
In that case shouldn't it sounds like... chooga chooga or something...
Narumi Arisa
... Stuffy...
Narumi Arisa
I can barely image that the original author of O-Dango-Kun is that stuffy minded...
Shion Chisato
... Alright, alright! Okay, let's go!

??
... Just now, who mention that...
???
Hozuki City...
Amano Suzune
...
Amano Suzune
(... True... Hozuki City...)
Amano Suzune
(... My original destination...)
Amano Suzune
(Although seduced by Kyuubey, I took a too long detour...)
Amano Suzune
(Now, let me wait until the affair blows over anyway...)
Amano Suzune
(However... Tokiwa Nanaka...)
Amano Suzune
...
Amano Suzune
What took place here... I won't forget...

Tokiwa Nanaka
... I also... need you, Meiyui-san...
Tokiwa Nanaka
to do me another favor.
Chun Meiyui
... What?
Tokiwa Nanaka
To spread another rumor.
Chun Meiyui
Rumor...
Tokiwa Nanaka
Suzune-san...
Tokiwa Nanaka
She'll attack other magical girls as well...
Tokiwa Nanaka
Although we made it through anyway...
Tokiwa Nanaka
I want to raise the alarm to other magical girls.
Chun Meiyui
I guess so...
Tokiwa Nanaka
But the number of magical girls we know is a drop in the bucket...
Tokiwa Nanaka
and, moreover, limited in Kamihama...
Tokiwa Nanaka
So at least we need to make up a rumor and spread it out.
Tokiwa Nanaka
Once anything happens, combined with the rumor...
Tokiwa Nanaka
it may at least set off an alarm bell for other magical girls...
Chun Meiyui
... Yeah...
Chun Meiyui
... If we do nothing, no information can be spread out.
Chun Meiyui
However...
Chun Meiyui
"There is a magical girl aiming at magical girls!"
Chun Meiyui
... sounds too weird to be spoken out.
Chun Meiyui
... I will try as much as I can.
Chun Meiyui
Then, what kind of rumor?
Tokiwa Nanaka
I guess...
Tokiwa Nanaka
A rumor that stirs up fear...
Tokiwa Nanaka
It might leave a deeper impression on people...
Tokiwa Nanaka
... Does this feel right?
Tokiwa Nanaka
...
Tokiwa Nanaka
... A girl who cuts girls' throats... Or whatever...
As the rumor spread on the internet
it derived many different stories
and they circulated gradually
Before long, the rumor changed its form
It turned into an urban legend of Hozuki City and became widespread
As an urban legend of "Miss RIPPER"...
But that was... something happened later...
