Chiharu 1

- Chiharu -
I asked about my family on the way
- Chiharu -
Long long ago
Our Hiroe family
seemingly consisted of people who left Tokime Village
- Chiharu -
And females in the Hiroe family had been told
to be wary of the Tokime Clan
- Chiharu -
Because my mom exposed our address
and moreover, because the legend was true
she seemed frightened in front of the phone
- Chiharu -
It does feel incredible
- Chiharu -
Moving out of the village from generations past
I have no idea why we were summoned
- Chiharu -
Nevertheless, we
kind of spontaneously went there
and arrived at a recess in the mountain

Chiharu
Hha—! What a nice place—!
Chiharu
Greenery and insects everywhere, and the air is fresh too. This is wonderful!
Chiharu
Every time I take a breath, it refreshes my chest—
Ahahaha! I'm glad that you praise this place so much.
Chiharu's mother
We're sorry for making you guide us so long...
Never mind.
Mikoshiba ordered me to do this. It's just common courtesy to welcome guests.
Plus, it's dangerous if you two walk here alone.

You must be tired after the long trip.
Here is the house for your stay.
Chiharu
Huh... How ancient is this...
Chiharu's mother
Hey, Chiharu...!
It's natural if this is the first time you've come here.
It's beyond signal's reach, and TV is hardly available either.
Despite the introduction of new technology, the life here remains conventional.
Then, come in please.
Ms. Mikoshiba will be greeting you, and she is waiting.
Chiharu
Who is that...?
The greatest honorable priestess of this village.
Chiharu
Huh?
Then, excuse me but I must be leaving now.
Chiharu's mother
Thank you for helping us.
Chiharu
Thanks for the guidance, sir!
Oh, see you, girl.
Chiharu
............
Chiharu
This village... would be where a case takes place if it was in Todoriki Kouichi's drama...
Chiharu's mother
You fool... Don't say anything inauspicious...

Chiharu's mother
Excuse me.
Chiharu
Excuse me for the disturbanceee.
???
Oh, you arrived?
???
You must be tired after the long journey.
Chiharu
Ah, the old woman is?
Mikoshiba
Ye must have heard from the villagers. I am the priestess, Mikoshiba.
Mikoshiba
Well, ye two must be tired. Please relax your legs and take your seats.
Chiharu's mother
O—okay, thank you.
Mikoshiba
Want some snacks, Chiharu-chan?
Chiharu
Can I!? I want to eat, I want to eat~
Chiharu's mother
Sorry...
Mikoshiba
Feel free. It's I who summoned you after all.
Mikoshiba
How do ye feel?
Mikoshiba
There is hardly anything in this village, but it is a good place, right?
Chiharu
Yes. The air is fresh. I think I'll enjoy this.
Mikoshiba
It's because we have coexisted with the Land of the Rising Sun for tens of thousands of years,
Mikoshiba
because we have sacrificed souls and preserved our tradition
Mikoshiba
that this village remaineth till today.
Chiharu
Sounds great—?
Chiharu's mother
............
Mikoshiba
Amazing, isn't it?
Mikoshiba
The Tokime family hath been like this, unlike Hiroe who left.
Chiharu's mother
—!?
Chiharu's mother
Well, you mean...
Mikoshiba
Thou knowest that, Chiharu's mother. Let me say it frankly.
Chiharu's mother
............
Mikoshiba
Today, ye two
Mikoshiba
well, not exactly, I mean Chiharu was summoned for just one reason.
Chiharu
munching
Chiharu's mother
That is...
- Mikoshiba -
"For the sake of us and the Land of the Rising Sun,
I want thee to sacrifice thy soul."
Chiharu
Hm?
Chiharu's mother
Sacrifice... her soul...? What are you going to do with Chiharu...
Mikoshiba
Ah, sorry. That was probably a bad way to say that.
Mikoshiba
I am not talking about asking thee to die.
Chiharu's mother
But, what you said just now...
Mikoshiba
Sacrificing the soul meaneth swearing an oath.
Mikoshiba
That is to say, I want Chiharu to swear an oath to the god
Mikoshiba
and become a diviner.
Chiharu
A diviner? What is that?
Mikoshiba
It's a great existence that helpeth people—no, the nation.
Chiharu
The great existence that helps people...
Chiharu
That's, a heroine!?
Mikoshiba
Heroine?
Chiharu
A person who can help everyone!
Mikoshiba
Exactly.
Chiharu
Like Todoriki Kouichi!
Chiharu's mother
Chiharu, calm down.
Chiharu's mother
Such things as sacrificing your soul or becoming a diviner,
Chiharu's mother
I will not nod approval as a mother without knowing anything.
Mikoshiba
Of course, that soundeth like what Hiroe's mother would say.
Mikoshiba
Ye don't have to decide so early.
Mikoshiba
I'll send two diviners to you so that ye can ask them.

All 1

Chiharu
I've finished. The meal was good.
Chiharu's mother
My pleasure.
Chiharu's mother
The vegetables we got were really delicious.
Chiharu
The green peppers were bitter though.
Chiharu's mother
Maybe that was what made them nutritious?
knock-knock
- ??? -
"Excuse me—?"
Chiharu
The diviners they mentioned yesterday?
Chiharu's mother
... Yeah, probably.
Chiharu
I'm coming—
???
Oh, you are Chiharu-chan?
Chiharu
Yes. That's me.
Shizuka
Nice to meet you, I am Tokime Shizuka, a diviner of this village.
Chiharu
Nice to meet you, I am Hiroe Chiha... Ah.
Chiharu
Tokime!?
Shizuka
Yeah, the same as the village's name, and I am from the head family of Tokime.
Chiharu
Heh—, that's awesome!
Chiharu
Is that someone—an old lady, who called you?
Shizuka
Hm? The old woman...? Do you perhaps mean Ms. Mikoshiba?
Chiharu
Yeah, that old woman!
Shizuka
Bwah!
Shizuka
Sunao, you heard that? She called Ms. Mikoshiba "the old woman".
???
It's the first time I heard someone call her that.
Chiharu
Wah, another person!
???
Nice to meet you, I am Toki Sunao. Best regards.
Chiharu
Are you a diviner too?
???
Yes. I am a diviner living in Ms. Mikoshiba's home.
???
I come from a village at the mountain's foot, but I belong to Tokime Clan too.
Chiharu's mother
Well, I'm pleased to meet you today...
Chiharu
Mom...
Shizuka
Though we don't know what the old woman said,
Shizuka
please don't be nervous, because we are just here to explain the diviners to you.
Chiharu's mother
Ye, yes.
Chiharu
Don't worry, mom.
Chiharu
We are just going to go for a stroll and chat for a bit.
Shizuka
Let me show you through the village on the way.

Shizuka
Hey, come here and look. This is a fishing spot.
Chiharu
I wanna fi—sh!

Sunao
There is a public meeting place nearby.
Chiharu
Looks like a dojo—!

Shizuka
And, if you climb up this way, you'll see the village's shrine.
Chiharu
Heh, though it is not much, there are still a lot of exciting things!
Sunao
There has been hardly any exchange with the outside world since ancient times, so we really cherish old things.
Sunao
At first I was astounded there weren't any smartphones or computers here.
Chiharu
I was astounded too when I looked at my phone and found it out of the service area.
Shizuka
I haven't even seen the real thing.
Chiharu
Hoeh—

Shizuka
Phew... That's a long walk—.
Sunao
Yeaah.
Chiharu
I enjoyed it very much.
Shizuka
It's my pleasure then.
Shizuka
So, after relaxing,
Shizuka
let's get into the main topic.
Chiharu
Ah, that the old woman said.
Shizuka
Yeah, what the old woman said.
Sunao
Chiharu-san's "old woman"
Sunao
has infected Shizuka.
Shizuka
Sunao said that too, didn't you?
Chiharu
Old woman Mikoshiba.
Shizuka
Sounds good.
Sunao
Haha.
Shizuka
So, can you tell me what the old woman Mikoshiba said?
Chiharu
Let me see... Sacrificing the soul...?
Shizuka
Not that.
Chiharu
............?
Shizuka
It's "we are the existences that help people and the nation."
Chiharu
Ah, she said that. The same as what you said.
Shizuka
Actually, that is not a metaphor but a real thing.
Shizuka
We have the power of granted wishes for the salvation of the Land of the Rising Sun.
Shizuka
After the wishes were granted, we became diviners that can fight against devils.
Chiharu
Wishes...? Devils...?
Sunao
The wishes are mysterious powers that turn something we said real in order to make the Land of the Rising Sun better.
Sunao
And devils, as the word literally means, are evil spirits. They should be defeated for the sake of people's happiness.
Sunao
Though invisible to normal people, if they are ignored, people can become victims.
Chiharu
............
Chiharu
Can you two really use that mysterious power
Chiharu
to fight against something apparently so dangerous...?
Chiharu
Because you see, you are of the same age as me after all...?
Shizuka
Chiharu
Shizuka
It's not whether we can. Indeed, we have already been doing so.
Sunao
And it's something that can only happen at our age.
Chiharu
... That's great, cool!
Chiharu
That being said, frankly speaking, it confuses me...
Sunao
Eh...
Chiharu
Since you already took me here, I want to believe it.
Chiharu
And I look forward to that kind of existence too, you know?
Chiharu
However, I have no idea how can I confirm it...
Sunao
Then...
Shizuka
Yeah, that's it.
Chiharu
—!?
Sunao
Ya!
Shizuka
Hah!!
Chiharu
Eh... eh...?
Shizuka
This is the power gained by praying to the mystery,
Sunao
the power to smash devils.
Chiharu
............
Chiharu
(What should I do... My heart is accelerating...)
Chiharu
(But, I am not afraid... They are the heartbeats of—admiration...!)
Sunao
Gonna become one...?
Chiharu
—!?
Shizuka
The same kind of diviner as us.

All 2

Chiharu
Well...
Chiharu
I have admired them for a long time,
Chiharu
the heroes like the police and detectives.
Shizuka
If so, isn't this the very chance?
Shizuka
We have the power to help the nation and people.
Chiharu
I know that. But...
Sunao
You can't...?
Chiharu
Yeah...
Sunao
But Ms. Mikoshiba has been expecting ...
Chiharu
After all, being said so suddenly, it still feels too surreal...
Chiharu
I'm sorry. Though you have been treating me so well...
Sunao
Is that so...
Chiharu
However, I'm proud to know awesome people like you!
Chiharu
So
- Chiharu -
"Eh..."

BAD END (1)

All 3

- Chiharu -
I have admired them for a long time
- Chiharu -
the heroes like the police and detectives
who can save people...
- Chiharu -
And, right now
the chance is right before my eyes!
- Chiharu -
Probably...
- Chiharu -
Its nature still remains mysterious
and my mother is worried too
However
Both Shizuka-chan and Sunao-chan look like good people
- Chiharu -
Plus, after being shown such amazing power...
Chiharu
............
Shizuka
How is that? Have you decided...?
Chiharu
Well... It's bugging me...
Sunao
You can't...?
Chiharu
Weeeeeeeell...
Shizuka
It's hard to decide at ease...
Sunao
——!?
Sunao
Shizuka, this reaction...!
Shizuka
Yeah, I felt it too.
Chiharu
Eh, what, what's up!?
Shizuka
There is a devil outside the village...
Chiharu
Hweeh!?
Sunao
... Shizuka, the timing is just right.
Sunao
Since it's a good chance, let's show her the bravery of diviners.
Shizuka
But, Sunao, isn't it dangerous?
Sunao
There'll be no problems. Either of us can fight against the devil alone.
Sunao
The devil and Chiharu
Sunao
shall each be taken care of, and that's enough.
Shizuka
... Yeah.
Shizuka
Chiharu, wanna have a look? A look at the way we fight against a devil,
Shizuka
and the power to protect without any tricks.
Chiharu
............
Chiharu
Okay, let me have a look! Shizuka-chan, Sunao-chan!
Shizuka
Then, let's go.

Chiharu
Is there a devil here...?
Shizuka
There is. These guys usually don't show up in front of us.
Shizuka
They attack people secretly like this.
Sunao
Let's go inside.
Chiharu
Okay...!
GI...GAGA...
Chiharu
Heh?
CHIKICHIKICHIKI...KI...
Chiharu
...Uwaaaa!
Chiharu
What's this! It's disgusting!
Shizuka
Chiharu, calm down! We'll defeat that!
Sunao
Yes!
Sunao
Leave the enemy to Shizuka. Chiharu, follow me!!
Chiharu
O—okay!!

Chiharu 2

BO—N BOBO—N BO—N
Shizuka
Huh, this will be your last gasp.
Shizuka
That's useless.
Shizuka
This is the finishing blow!!
GIGI——↑ KICHIKICHI...↓

Shizuka
Huh... Well, this is completely within my capability.
Sunao
As expected from the head family's daughter.
Shizuka
Ehehe.
Shizuka
How is this, Chiharu? This is our power.
Chiharu
............
Shizuka
Chiharu?
Chiharu
............
Sunao
Chiharu-san?
Chiharu
—!?
Chiharu
Ah, hm, it's great...
Chiharu
Normal people can't jump around like that...
Shizuka
It's just normal for diviners. Because it's the power to protect someone.
Chiharu
That's, true.

Chiharu
I'm back—
Chiharu's mother
Chiharu! Welcome back!
Chiharu's mother
I was worried—it's late, you know!?
Chiharu
So—sorry...
Shizuka
I am sorry...
Shizuka
We really intended to just talk for a while,
Shizuka
but we sensed a devil on the way...
Chiharu's mother
A devil...?
Chiharu
I saw it, mom.
Chiharu
When the two diviners fought, I witnessed the moment that they foiled the evil being that hurts humans!
Chiharu's mother
............
Chiharu
............
Chiharu's mother
Chiharu, are you perhaps...
Chiharu
Yeah, going to become a diviner.
Chiharu's mother
Why...!
Chiharu
When I heard it from them, I couldn't believe it either.
Chiharu
However, after seeing the form of diviners and their form in actual combat,
Chiharu
I wanted to help too.
Chiharu
If I am actually qualified to become a diviner. But...
Chiharu's mother
Chiharu... You can't become one just because of admiring...
Shizuka
Perhaps you are still worried over Mikoshiba's words.
Shizuka
But we already became diviners.
Shizuka
And despite sacrificing our souls to the god, we are still healthy.
Shizuka
Therefore, please rest assured.
Chiharu's mother
But, just hearing from the people concerned...
Mikoshiba
Hast thou decided?
Chiharu's mother
—!?
Chiharu
Old woman!
Mikoshiba
Old woman!?
Sunao
Chiharu-san!
Mikoshiba
Haha! This is the first time I heard that title.
Chiharu
Sorry...
Mikoshiba
Never mind. I'm happy with that. Feel free.
Mikoshiba
So, thine answer is
Chiharu
... I will! Become a diviner!
Mikoshiba
Okay. That spirit is good.
Mikoshiba
The ritual is being prepared, so please come to the shrine tomorrow night.
Chiharu
Yeah, I understood.
Sunao
Then, Ms. Mikoshiba... Chiharu-san's wish will be
Mikoshiba
Yeah, this one.
Mikoshiba
Read it carefully and remember it.
Chiharu
............
Flip
To uncover
the evidence concerning the incident by Ministry of Defense officials
concealed by the National Police Agency
Chiharu
This is...

"Today's Parliament is focusing on the case of crimes by Ministry of Defense officials
that have been concealed by the Metropolitan Police Department.
Angry rebukes from both sides continue to escalate in the Houses of Parliament."
Chiharu
It's weird that even though the police are heroes, there are still bad guys.

Mikoshiba
On the dark side of the Land of the Rising Sun,
Mikoshiba
isn't this a wish that should be realized for the sake of protecting our nation and people?
Mikoshiba
... Even among the allies of justice, there are still evildoers that nest inside justice.
Chiharu
That's unforgivable.
Mikoshiba
So please use thy power to direct them in the right direction.
Mikoshiba
See?
Chiharu
Yeah.
Mikoshiba
Then, Shizuka and Sunao, can ye two go to the shrine?
Mikoshiba
The dancers are preparing for tomorrow. Go to help them.
Shizuka
Ah, got it.
Sunao
Yes, madam.
Sunao
Then, Chiharu-san, see you tomorrow.
Shizuka
Chiharu, let's practice during the day tomorrow. I think my mom will help you.
Chiharu
Eh? Ah, yeah.
Mikoshiba
Also, Hiroe's mother, let's talk a little.

Chiharu's mother
I'm back
Chiharu
Ah, welcome back.
Chiharu's mother
............
Chiharu
Mom...?
Chiharu's mother
Chiharu... Are you really going to become a diviner...?
Chiharu's mother
Curiosity kills the cat, Mr. Todoriki said that, right...?
Chiharu
Yeah...
Chiharu
However, he also said there may be weird truths, and they should be accepted.
Chiharu's mother
... True.
Chiharu
Sorry.
Chiharu's mother
It's okay. I already heard it from Ms. Mikoshiba and prepared for the worst...

Chiharu 3

Chiharu's mother
I am Hiroe Chiharu's mother. Thank you for your time today.
Shizuka's mother
Thank you for your politeness. I am Tokime Shizuka's mother.
Shizuka's mother
As a mother of a diviner like you, I look forward to working with you.
Chiharu's mother
Okay...
Shizuka's mother
I know you are worried, but it'll be alright. Because those kids are strong.
Chiharu
I was wondering what the practice would be, and it turns out to be practice of fighting!?
Shizuka
As you saw yesterday, improving your senses is necessary to fight against devils.
Chiharu
But... Why Shizuka's mother?
Shizuka
My mother is a master of Tokime Isshin Style.
[Note] 時女一心流 (Toime-isshin-ryuu). Isshin (lit.: one-hearted) can mean concentrated or devoted here.
Shizuka
Even if men attack in group, she can kick and scatter them away.
Chiharu
Heh—!
Sunao
And when the foundation is solidified, it leads to the improvement of the technique.
Chiharu
Shizuka's mother is awesome...
Shizuka's mother
Well then, let's start with a brief greeting, Hiroe Chiharu.
Chiharu
Ye—yes!
Shizuka's mother
Then, first, try striking freely with this bamboo sword?
Shizuka's mother
Without considering skills, just do it seriously.
- Chiharu -
"Ya!"
- Chiharu -
"Eh—ee!"
- Chiharu -
"N'na————!"
Chiharu
Ha... Ha... Ha... I can't hit it at all.
Shizuka's mother
Exhausted...?
Chiharu
Yeah, I'm tired...
Shizuka's mother
Then, let's do it once again.
Chiharu
Eh!?
Shizuka
Mom is harsh.
Shizuka's mother
Hahaha, just kidding. Rest for a while.
Chiharu
Great...
Sunao
How is Chiharu-san?
Shizuka's mother
Well...
Shizuka's mother
I think the courage of devotion is excellent, but the others not at all.
Chiharu
Not at all...!?
Chiharu
I feel despondent...
Sunao
Don't be downhearted, Chiharu-san. One shining point is enough.
Shizuka
Yeah yeah, I was given "zero points" at the beginning.
Chiharu
Is that so?
Shizuka's mother
Yeah.
Shizuka's mother
Also, courage is important.
Shizuka's mother
Different from force and technique, it is difficult to change your heart.
Chiharu
Is that so...
Shizuka's mother
So, let's start with some basic practice now.
Chiharu
Okay.
Shizuka's mother
First, let's start from adjusting the axis of your body, and meanwhile, reducing redundant movements.

Chiharu
Hah... Hah...
Shizuka's mother
Good job, Chiharu-chan. You made progress within just half a day.
Chiharu
Really!?
Shizuka's mother
Yeah, you won't lose to my daughter.
Shizuka
What a shame to be remarked about in that way...
Shizuka's mother
Haha.
Shizuka's mother
So, please maintain that courage and welcome the ceremony with confidence.
Shizuka's mother
Because the heart of protecting something
Shizuka's mother
will surely lead you to protect the nation and help people.
Chiharu
Yeah, thank you so much!
Ah, girl. You are here.
Chiharu
Ah, the man who led the way for us!
Seems that you were put through the mill by the head family's mother?
Shizuka's mother
Stop using that bad description.
Gahaha, sorry.
Shizuka
What happened?
I came to inform you that the shrine is ready.
That being said, we still have time. Let's have dinner first.
Shizuka
Got it.
Chiharu
............
Chiharu's mother
It's finally coming, Chiharu.
Chiharu
Yeah, it'll be okay. I've gained enough confidence.

Chiharu 4

- Chiharu -
It was a sudden incoming phone call when watching TV
- Chiharu -
Without knowing anything, we arrived at Tokime Village
and I was abruptly asked to sacrifice my soul
Both my mother and I were quite frustrated
- Chiharu -
But now I have already made up my mind
- Chiharu -
Because I met Shizuka-chan and Sunao-chan
asked about who diviners are
and saw how they actually fight
- Chiharu -
I had always yearned to become a heroine
that can help someone else
And I thought it would come true
- Chiharu -
I know I will make a wish
through a mysterious power
- Chiharu -
I'll punish the people whom the police detest,
who force my heroes to do wrong
- Chiharu -
According to what old woman said
by doing so, I'll be able to protect people
and make the nation better too
- Chiharu -
Moerover, I was praised by Shizuka's mother
who told me to be confident since I already have enough courage
So I am going to become a diviner
- Chiharu -
And Todoriki Kouichi said it too
that we should accept weird truths...

Chiharu's mother
It's okay. I already heard it from Ms. Mikoshiba and prepared for the worst...

What should I do? I want it to end soon

I never imagined that
it would make me so nervous

Because, this is...

going to sacrifice my soul to the god...
DUNG DUNG!!
-Chiharu-
——!?
-Chiharu-
............ Something over there...
-???-
I am surprised that Tokime summoned me again
though I feel like I've been called recently too
-???-
Are you perhaps
the girl who wants a wish granted?
-Chiharu-
He is speaking...
Mikoshiba
Cubey-sama, the god's angel
Mikoshiba
is invisible to us.
Mikoshiba
But, thou who is qualified to become a diviner shouldst be able to speak with him.
Mikoshiba
Go to have the wish granted.
-Chiharu-
Are you the god's angel?
-Cubey-
For a long time
Tokime's have called me that
-Cubey-
since there were many wishes to control floods and famines
I don't think it is unreasonable
-Chiharu-
Then can you really
grant my wish and turn me into a diviner...?
-Cubey-
That's it
I can make you a diviner you talk about
-Cubey-
And it seems that you are qualified
to have your wish granted
-Cubey-
Summoning me like this
You must want to become a diviner, right?
-Chiharu-
Ye, yeah
-Cubey-
I will grant you the wish
What wish are you going to make?
-Chiharu-
I...

Sunao
Then, Ms. Mikoshiba... Chiharu-san's wish will be
Mikoshiba
Yeah, this one.
Mikoshiba
Read it carefully and remember it.
Sunao

Mikoshiba

Chiharu
The National Police Agency...
Cubey
Yes.
- Chiharu -
"To uncover
the evidence concerning the incident by Ministry of Defense officials
concealed by the National Police Agency"
Chiharu
Uwa...!
Cubey
Your wish has overcome entropy.
Cubey
And this is your new form for battle.

Chiharu
This is I, who have become a diviner...

Chiharu 6

Chiharu's mother
Chiharu... Is it really alright...?
Chiharu
Yeah, it is really alright.
Chiharu
Rather, I'm better than before.
Shizuka
That's right.
Shizuka
Because now, Chiharu has gained the power to fight against devils.
Sunao
Congratulations. Now we are a trio.
Shizuka
Yep.
Chiharu
Ye, yeah.
Shizuka
... That's a subtle reaction, something strange...?
Chiharu
Eh!? Not at all. I'm very fine! Probably!
Sunao
Then, what's up?
Chiharu
It somehow feels unreal... Was my wish granted...?
Sunao
Is that so?
Shizuka
You'll know that soon, for sure.
Sunao
Yeah.
Chiharu
...?
clomp, clomp clomp
knock-konck
Excuse me—
Chiharu's mother
Oh yeah, this voice
Chiharu
must be from that man!
Chiharu
Good morning!
Good morning, Chiharu.
Chiharu's mother
Good morning.
Good morning.
Chiharu
What happened?
This, Ms. Mikoshiba ask me to show this to you.
It's the morning post of the day.
Chiharu
Newspaper?
Yeah, look at the front page?
Chiharu's mother
—!?
Chiharu's mother
It was really...?
U-Turn in Remark: Internal Information Admitted
Chiharu
Which means, I managed to protect it, right...?
Chiharu
It's me who protected the nation and many people—!
Chiharu
As Shizuka-chan and Sunao-chan said, I knew it very soon!
Chiharu
Moreover, I gained mysterious power! And the power to defeat devils too for sure!
Chiharu
Mother!
Chiharu's mother
Wha, what!?
Chiharu
I'll go to Shizuka's mother to have some exercise!
Chiharu's mother
Wait, Chiharu!
Chiharu's mother
It's too early and you will cause trouble! At least finish your breakfast before that!

Chiharu & Shizuka 1

Shizuka's mother
Charu! Not yet! You count too much on diviner's power.
Chiharu
Nu'nn!
Chiharu
Heck—!
Shizuka's mother
Huh...
Shizuka's mother
See, you move only head-on when losing your cool.
Shizuka's mother
Then even devils can predict your movement.
Chiharu
URYAAA!
Shizuka's mother
Wait!
Shizuka's mother
Don't do it seriously, I can't hold that!
Chiharu
Uwaaa, sorry!

Shizuka's mother
Let's take a break
Chiharu
Hu...
Shizuka's mother
Keep in mind that practice is practice, okay?
Shizuka's mother
I'll die if the opponent is a diviner...
Chiharu
Yes...
Shizuka
However, after a week of thorough training, your movement has become better.
Sunao
And her sense is good in the first place.
Shizuka's mother
That is to say, you three have been playing all the way, haven't you?
Shizuka
Gr...
Chiharu
I was taught how to fish and the names of flowers.
Shizuka
Don't say anything irreverent.
Chiharu
By the way, when talking, I thought
Chiharu
Shizuka-chan knows nothing about things outside the village, right?
Shizuka
Eh, well, because I have never gone out.
Sunao
Shizuka hasn't watched TV, and the outside world is like a fantasy, right?
Shizuka
Yeah, I have seen cars, but I have only seen trains in pictures.
Shizuka
Isn't everyone in the village the same?
Sunao
Well, don't forget that I am special.
Shizuka
Yeah, nobody else comes from outside.
Chiharu
I see. Isn't it inconvenient?
Shizuka
Not at all. They are unnecessary in the village.
Shizuka's mother
It was something very long ago, that not until the exchange with this village stopped
Shizuka's mother
was the gap of civilization widen.
Shizuka
It's the first time I heard this, but when was that?
Shizuka's mother
Who knows? Perhaps hundreds of years ago.
Shizuka
Incredible...
Shizuka's mother
Moreover, modern technology is not nonexistent in the village.
Shizuka's mother
Even I, as a mother, don't know when the dividing line was.
Chiharu
I smell something!
Shizuka
Wait, it's not me, okay!?
Chiharu
Not that. I mean the smell of an incident...!
Shizuka
Eeh...?
Shizuka
Why does Charu say this every day after becoming a diviner?
Chiharu
I am not kidding you. It just feels noisy.
Sunao
Charu's weapon is a jitte. Did she get the power like that of the police or detectives?
[Note] A jitte (十手) is a short metal truncheon used by a policeman in feudal Japan.
Shizuka's mother
That's very well put.
Shizuka's mother
If so, it might be the reaction from a quarrel or something in the village.
Chiharu
Mn—, only if so. Yet I still feel it strange—...
Shizuka's mother
Nah, it doesn't help however you think.
Shizuka's mother
Take a bit more of a break and start practicing again.
Shizuka's mother
Starting tomorrow, you three go outside to have some more practical experience.
Shizuka's mother
I'm sure you will gain something.
Chiharu
Okay, got it!

All 4

Shizuka
Well, today let's go through the routine of finding a devil and defeating it.
Chiharu
Okay—!
Chiharu
The thing defeated by two will be defeated by three today.
Sunao
Right, and Charu should make an effort too.
Chiharu
Of course, I was well-trained by Shizuka's mother.
Chiharu
Well,
Chiharu
Shizuka has always been in the village, right?
Shizuka
Yeah, I was born and brought up in the village.
Chiharu
Will you al—ways fight as a diviner here from now on?
Shizuka
From now on? ... I don't think so.
Chiharu
Why?
Shizuka
Of course, it is my mission to defeat devils around the village,
Shizuka
but the mission of a diviner is to defeat devils in the Land of the Rising Sun in the first place.
Shizuka
So we are still immature if we are still fighting in the village
Shizuka
Someday I will go outside.
Chiharu
Is that so, Shizuka-chan will...
Shizuka
Why do you seem to be worried?
Chiharu
Because you know nothing about the outside.
Sunao
Haha.
Shizuka
Wait, Sunao, don't laugh.
Sunao
Sorry. It is a bit interesting to just imagine it.
Shizuka
Hum... Indeed I know little about the world.
Shizuka
However, Chiharu, Sunao, I'll really go outside.
Shizuka
That's also because there have been much fewer devils recently...
Chiharu
Sunao-chan too?
Sunao
I have my roots in the village, but the ties are not as close.
Sunao
And Charu is the same.
Chiharu
But we managed to get along well, yet we will still be separated apart...
Sunao
It's okay.
Sunao
Even if we are separated, as long as our opponents are devils in the Land of the Rising Sun,
Sunao
we will be able to meet again.
Chiharu
Yeah.
Shizuka
Now the more important thing is whether I can become independent.
Chiharu
That's true. I was just worried about weird things.

All 5

Shizuka
............
Sunao
............
Shizuka
Sunao, this is...
Sunao
Yeah...
Sunao
It is probably better to change a place...
Chiharu
............
Sunao
Charu?
Chiharu
I found it!
Sunao
—!?
Sunao
You felt the existence of a devil?
Chiharu
Yeah, a reaction different from Shizuka-chan's and Sunao-chan's.
Chiharu
I think it is a devil, probably.
Shizuka
Which direction did you feel the reaction is from?
Chiharu
From inside this.
Shizuka
If so, let's give it up this time.
Sunao
Right. Let's go somewhere else to look for devils.
Chiharu
But why!? We worked so hard to find that.
Shizuka
In front of you is the Wavering Deity...
Chiharu
The Wavering Deity...? So it isn't a devil...?
Sunao
It is a devil.
Sunao
However, it is an existence that we cannot step in.
Chiharu
Eh... That's weird...
Shizuka
It is a wandering devil in an old legend,
Shizuka
the only holy existence.
Chiharu
Hmn—...
Shizuka
At least, let's go and have a look. It's good for Charu to know it too.
-Chiharu-
This is...
-Sunao-
Yeah. A mysterious devil that goes nowhere else
but drifts around the village only
-Sunao-
It's also called Tokime's guardian god
-Chiharu-
And yet it is a devil?
-Sunao-
Yeah, so
you cannot step in
-Chiharu-
Hum—

All 6

Chiharu
Although I can't understand...
Chiharu
I think, yeah, I'll stop here...
Chiharu
I don't want to trouble you two for my sake after all
Sunao
Yes, I think it is a wise choice.
Shizuka
Then let's change a place.
Shizuka
Because all devils around here were hunted.
Chiharu
Yeah, I hope I can find one again!
Chiharu
Huh, huh? Is it better not to find any?
Shizuka
Yeah, for real.

Shizuka
Finally we found one.
Sunao
Anyhow, we found it...
Chiharu
I'm tired...
Sunao
Charu, no. It's high time for the battle.
Chiharu
Because we have been walking around on the mountain all— the way...
Shizuka
That's exactly the proof that there is no devil around the village.
Chiharu
It's the proof of peace.
Shizuka
Yeah yeah.
Chiharu
Okay, let's give it our all to make it more peaceful!
Sunao
Keep that spirit.
Shizuka
This is your first battle after becoming a diviner. Are you physically and mentally prepared?
Chiharu
O... Okay!
Shizuka
Well, then, let's dash into the battlefield!
Shizuka
............
Sunao
...Shizuka, our opponent has yet to note here.
Chiharu
That's strange. You mean we'd better not to start out?
Shizuka
Yeah, we would be in trouble if the devil's followers swarm.
Shizuka
Let's go inside all the way at once.
Chiharu
Okay.

All 7

Chiharu
Hmn—
Chiharu
Even if you say so, I can't accept that!
Chiharu
Even if you say it protects the village, a devil is a devil, right?
Shizuka
If you say so...
Sunao
Shizuka, don't yield to her!
Chiharu
I knew...!
Sunao
Charu?
Chiharu
I'll have a look at whether it is really a deified devil!
Shizuka
Wait!
Sunao
Chase after her!

―Chiharu―
The location of the Wavering Deity
is there
―Chiharu―
Then, the entry of the labyrinth...
Chiharu
Should be somewhere around here!
Chiharu
Whether it is like what Sunao-chan and Shizuka-chan said,
Chiharu
I must confirm it.
Chiharu
Who, who are you!?
- Chiharu -
"Uwaaaa!!"

BAD END (2)

Chiharu & Shizuka 2

ZARIZARI…☆…◇…!?!?
Shizuka
Okay, our opponent lost balance.
Shizuka
Charu!
Chiharu
Yeah!
Chiharu
I'll go. Arrest, arrest—!
ZUSHAA★○□▼!?!?
Chiharu
I did it...! Sunao-chan, I bound it!
Chiharu
Finish it while we have time!
Sunao
Yes!
Sunao
Be wrapped in the blaze of the crystal... And get purified!
ZARIZARIZARI…
Sunao
We did it. It was defeated!
Chiharu
Yeah— Perfect—!
Shizuka
Yeah, Charu did really good at binding.
Shizuka
Wasn't it the outcome of practicing with my mother?
Chiharu
I guess!

Shizuka
This is the gift for Charu's first victory. Take it.
Chiharu
This is...?
Shizuka
The ghost of the devil.
Chiharu
I'll get troubled by receiving it...
Shizuka
Not so.
Shizuka
By using the ghost, we can restore our power.
Chiharu
But how?
Sunao
When becoming diviners, you got a jewel,
Sunao
and the power of a diviner is stored there.
Chiharu
............
Chiharu
... Mine is tainted.
Sunao
That is the proof that you used your power, and it needs to be purified.
Shizuka
And that is the time to use the ghost.
Shizuka
It seems that bad things have the nature of gathering in bad places.
Shizuka
By doing so
Chiharu
—!?
Chiharu
It became clear!
Shizuka
That's it.
Shizuka
I guess it can be used once or two more, so you can keep it.
Chiharu
What if it can't be used anymore?
Sunao
Please hand it to Ms. Mikoshiba.
Sunao
She is the priestess, so I guess she will deal with it properly.
Chiharu
Okay, got it!
Chiharu
Thank you, Shizuka-chan, Sunao-chan.
Sunao
You're welcome.
Sunao
Oh? Shizuka's is pretty tainted too.
Sunao
There have been fewer devils too. Is that alright?
Shizuka
Yeah, I think it is alright. Thanks for your concern.
Chiharu
But what willeth happen if it becomes completely tainted?
Shizuka
Hmn?
Chiharu
Nah, I wonder if that will make you unable to fight.
Shizuka
Hmn—…
Shizuka
I think I can only restore by getting a ghost from someone else then.
Shizuka
Has Sunao's ever been tainted completely?
Sunao
No. Mine hasn't either.
Chiharu
Somehow I feel it is a mystery makes me uncomfortable—
Shizuka
Is that something making you that uncomfortable...?
Sunao
Ah, that's it.
Sunao
From today on, I will go back to the village for several days and collect ghosts.
Sunao
Though devils around the village were almost all defeated,
Sunao
I expect that during the time I go down to the village, when I am absent, there will be more devils.
Chiharu
If so, it'll be quite a relief.
Shizuka
But don't take chances, okay?
Sunao
I think so, because you will be the only one left.

Shizuka 1

Chiharu
But what will happen if it becomes completely tainted?
Shizuka
Hmn?
Chiharu
Nah, I wonder if that will make you unable to fight.

Shizuka
(I never cared that much...)
Shizuka
(What if our power is completely tainted...)
Shizuka
(I want to know how to deal with it, so I have to confirm.)

Shizuka
Excuse me—.
Shizuka
............
Yes, who is coming?
Ah, you are the head family's daughter.
Shizuka
Yes, I am Shizuka. And I want to talk to Ms. Mikoshiba.
Please wait a moment.
Shizuka
(Well, it isn't something secret, so I guess it's alright to ask...)
Shizuka
............
Thanks for waiting. Come in please.
Shizuka
Thank you.

Mikoshiba
Oh. What will happen when thy power is completely tainted?
Shizuka
Yes.
Shizuka
Well, you don't have to answer if I shouldn't have asked it.
Mikoshiba
Nah, it is not something that I am hiding.
Mikoshiba
I'll tell thee now.
Shizuka
Thank you very much...
Mikoshiba
Ho, wouldest thou show me thy jewel?
Shizuka
... Yes, please take a look.
Mikoshiba
............ Hum.
Mikoshiba
It is severely tainted.
Shizuka
Because devils around the village is becoming fewer...
Mikoshiba
That is to say, thou art about to become independent
Mikoshiba
and becomest alone.
Shizuka
Eh, independent?
Mikoshiba
Oh, sorry.
Mikoshiba
That meaneth, when the power of thy jewel becometh completely tainted,
Mikoshiba
it meaneth thou art coming of age, becoming an adult as a diviner.
Mikoshiba
In other words, it'll be the time for thee to go outside as a self‐supporting diviner.
Shizuka
... I have heard it from my mother, but I didn't expect it was real.
Mikoshiba
Is it that surprising?
Shizuka
I have known that the time for me will come soon too.
Shizuka
But I didn't know it is so closely related to the jewel.
Mikoshiba
I am sorry for telling thee too late.
Shizuka
No, I am glad that I was told about it.
Shizuka
Then I will be able to help the Land of the Rising Sun as a self-supporting diviner.
Mikoshiba
On an advance celebration,
Mikoshiba
there will be some delicious snakes. Dost thou want some?
Shizuka
Can I?
Mikoshiba
It is just for my killing time. Take it easy.
Mikoshiba
By the way, I want to ask something about Hiroe's daughter too.
Shizuka
I can tell you anything about Charu!

Chiharu 7

- Chiharu -
Sniff sniff sniff
- Chiharu -
Sniff sniff sniff
- Chiharu -
Sniff sniff sniff sniff, sniff sniff
Chiharu
Hum... It does smell...
Chiharu
(Though I no longer talk much about this to Shizuka-chan or others,)
Chiharu
(I do notice the smell of an incident after becoming a diviner...)
Chiharu
Mr. Todoriki, how do you think of it?

- Todoriki (Chiharu) -
Your sense of smell is sharp, Miss Hiroe
- Todoriki (Chiharu) -
I also thought
there must be something in the village
- Todoriki (Chiharu) -
I am happy to have an excellent assistant

Chiharu
Ehehe.
Chiharu
So, since Mr. Todoroki's gave a positive response too,
Chiharu
Hiroe Chiharu is starting to explore.

Chiharu
Hmn?
Chiharu
(Somehow I feel it smells stronger...)
Chiharu
(What is that...)
Chiharu
—!?
Chiharu
(Perhaps there are some awful people like bandits in this village...)
Chiharu
(There was news about that too.)
Chiharu
(Like, a story of people growing grass in mountains getting caught!)
Chiharu
(But is it okay to go inside?)
Chiharu
............
Chiharu
(I am already a diviner...)
Chiharu
(If there are people working for the shrine inside, perhaps I can ask something about the taint too.)
Chiharu
Yeah, that's killing two birds with one stone!
Chiharu
Make an effort to step inside.
Chiharu
...!
Chiharu
Ugh, ueh... Why, does it suddenly feels...
Chiharu
(That's awful. My heart suddenly raised...)
Chiharu
Because I am attempting to go inside...?
Chiharu
Uugh, I guess I'd better go back...

Chiharu & Shizuka 3

- Chiharu -
Go back now or never
- Chiharu -
But, it does make me anxious
- Chiharu -
Things may go wrong if I don't go back quickly
- Chiharu -
But, as a diviner
I have to confirm things that could go wrong
- Chiharu -
It can be very dangerous
- Chiharu -
but, but, but
Chiharu
but, I came anyway...
No!
Chiharu
Uwaaaa! Shi—, Shi— Shi— Shi—, Shizuka-chan!?
Shizuka
I felt Charu, your reaction nearby, and I thought if you were here.
Shizuka
And you really are...
Chiharu
So, I shouldn't...?
Shizuka
You are going to get a good scold if you go in any further.
Chiharu
Oh, I see...
Chiharu
But, but! it smells awful.
Chiharu
From behind the stage, to the degree that gets me sick...
Shizuka
The smell of an incident?
Chiharu
Yeah.
Shizuka
Even so, you can't.
Shizuka
The Sanctuary here isn't open except for at ceremonies or emergency.
Shizuka
When in Rome, do as the Romans do. Follow the village's rules, okay?
Chiharu
... I see.
Shizuka
Okay, great.
Chiharu
But
Shizuka
But what?
Chiharu
I became a diviner here, so I guess I can perhaps know some secrets.
Chiharu
Like what happens when the jewel is completely tainted...
Shizuka
You're concerned about me?
Chiharu
Yeah, just a bit.
Shizuka
Just a bit?…
Shizuka
Haha, but I am happy. Thanks.
Shizuka
However, you don't have to concern about that.
Chiharu
Eh?
Shizuka
I went to asked thoroughly about what will happen.
Chiharu
That would be great. I have one thing less to worry about.

Chiharu 8

Chiharu
Ha... Here I am...
Chiharu
(There is nothing but a structure more worn-out than the stage...)
Chiharu
... Hmn
Chiharu
Though I got used of it,
Chiharu
it still feels bad...
Chiharu
It's supposed to be a sacred place, but its atmosphere is kinda...
Chiharu
(... That structure looks strange)
Chiharu
As though it is cursed...
Chiharu
(If I tell this to Shizuka, she will probably scold that I am damned by the god.)
Chiharu
............
Chiharu
A devil...?
Chiharu
No... Who is that...!?
Chiharu
—!?
Chiharu
This is... An attack...?
Chiharu
I'm sorry. If I did anything wrong, I would stop here!
Chiharu
Uwa!
Chiharu
(At this point, I have to escape...)
Chiharu
Ha... Ha...
Chiharu
(It comes again... I must evade...!)
GA...
Chiharu
Na!
Chiharu
(Why am I stumbled!)
Chiharu
Ah...
- Chiharu -
"Aaaah!!"

BAD END (3)

Chiharu & Shizuka 4

Shizuka
That is to say, a completely tainted jewel symbolizes the coming of age of a diviner.
Shizuka
It means you have done a good job for the village.
Chiharu
But, are you going to graduate from being a diviner without being able to fight...?
Chiharu
Then you cannot defeat devils scattering across the Land of the Rising Sun!
Shizuka
It's true that I won't be able to use my power.
Shizuka
So I will have to obtain ghosts from somewhere else.
Shizuka
Besides, it seems that before departing, the old woman will help purify it.
Chiharu
That would be good.
Chiharu
I was afraid of whether you will die.
Shizuka
That's a groundless fear.
Chiharu
But if you are going outside when coming of age,
Shizuka
............
Chiharu
will we be apart soon?
Shizuka
I somehow blurt it out before, but it seems that that day is indeed close.
Chiharu
... I will feel lonely.
Chiharu
Thoug it hasn't been long, we got along so well.
Shizuka
I am the same too, Charu.
Shizuka
I am glad that I met you. You are bright and cheerful.
Chiharu
Me too.
Shizuka
So don't worry.
Shizuka
The coming-of-age ceremony is a bit later, and I can still fight for a while.
Shizuka
So let's work together before that moment comes, Charu.
Chiharu
Yeah, Shizuka-chan.
Shizuka
Then, I'm this way.
Chiharu
Okay—, see you tomorrow—.
Chiharu
............

Chiharu
(Wah—, it's still early... it's still early, but, I already feel sad...)
Chiharu
(Despite even if Shizuka-chan goes outside, we can still meet someday.)
Chiharu
Why! What's the reason! My eyes became wet.
Chiharu
............
Chiharu
I am happy now...
Chiharu
But I have to change my mood and bid farewell to her...
Chiharu
Yeah.
Chiharu
D, devil...
........................
Chiharu
Huh, it is not in a labyrinth...
............
...
Chiharu
Eh, Eeh...!?
Chiharu
There, and here... In a great number...
Chiharu
Shizuka-chan...Sunao-chan...!
............!
Chiharu
I did well yesterday...
Chiharu
Anyway these are just followers, so I can defeat them!
...!!
Chiharu
Come!?
Chiharu
Ya'aaaa!
............!?
Chiharu
(This is tougher than the one before...)
Chiharu
(But...)
...!!
Chiharu
Even if I am alone, I'll go!
............!?!?
Chiharu
Phew...
Chiharu
It'll be alright... It'll be alright...
Chiharu
This can be true...!?
............!
............!
Chiharu
No way...
Shizuka's voice
Ha'aaaa!!
...!?!?
Chiharu
Shizuka-chan!
Shizuka
It's right for me to come back. I felt something.
Chiharu
Thank you.
Shizuka
More importantly, where is the labyrinth of these thingies...?
Chiharu
I don't know. They just appear all in a sudden!
Chiharu
Shizuka-chan, you see them for the first time too?
Shizuka
Yeah, I haven't even heard about this...

Chiharu & Shizuka 5

............!?!?
Chiharu
Uh... Hu... I'll...
Shizuka
Hold out a bit more!
Chiharu
Okay...!
............!!
Chiharu
Argh.
Shizuka
Charu!
Shizuka
Heck... Enough, give up now!
Shizuka
—!?
Shizuka
Ouch...

Shizuka
Hu, huh, my power...

Chiharu
Shizuka-chan!
...!!
Shizuka
Ah...
Shizuka
Aaah!!
Chiharu
! No——————!!!
............!?!?
Chiharu
Hah... Hah... Hah... Hah...
Chiharu
Shizuka-chan...?
Shizuka
............
Chiharu
Shizuka-chan...!
Shizuka
............
Chiharu
She's bleeding...
Chiharu
Jeez, why... can't it be stopped...
Shizuka
............
Chiharu
Stop it... Stop it...!
Chiharu
Hah... Hah...
Chiharu
If I don't take her back...
Chiharu
She will bleed to death soon...
Chiharu
I take you back, home, now...!
Shizuka
............
Chiharu
Ah.
Bump...
Chiharu
............
Shizuka
............
Chiharu
Uuh...Uuuh...!
Chiharu
Mom————!!

Chiharu's mother
...Chiharu?

Hey, it's from the verge of the village! We need some people!
Ah, Mrs. Hiroe.
Chiharu's mother
Just now, Chiharu's voice...
We are gathering people to go to confirm the situation.
Chiharu's mother
I'll go too...

Chiharu's mother
Hah... Hah... Hah...
Don't move her recklessly!
There is an empty house! Take down a door and make it a stretcher!
Chiharu's mother
Chiharu...
Chiharu
Mom! Shizuka-chan is!
Shizuka's mother
Shizuka!
Chiharu's mother
――!?
Chiharu's mother
............
Chiharu's mother
(An acquaintance of mine's daughter was hurt...)
Chiharu's mother
(Why am I relieved...)

Shizuka 2

- Chiharu -
The rain shows no sign to stop...
- Chiharu -
Pitter-patter
Just like the sound of weeping...
- Chiharu -
Shizuka-chan...
Chiharu
............
Chiharu
(I couldn't fall asleep at all...)
Chiharu
............
Mikoshiba
Thou woke up?
Chiharu
Eh... Old woman...
Mikoshiba
Yea...
Mikoshiba
Thanks for thy mother's taking care.
Chiharu
Yeah... That's because she used to be a nurse...
Chiharu
How is Shizuka-chan?
Mikoshiba
She woke up just not.
Chiharu
Really...? With such serious injury...?
Mikoshiba
What dost thou think a diviner is? Isn't she an existence that fighteth against devils?
Mikoshiba
She wouldst not kick the bucket there.
Chiharu
That's great... That's great~...
Mikoshiba
Oh, oh, don't cry.
Mikoshiba
She just survived. So please smile.
Chiharu
Uh, ugh.
Chiharu
Okay.
Mikoshiba
Then, shall we visit Tokime's head family?
Chiharu
Can I go too? Is she able to meet people now?
Mikoshiba
Ah, it's fine.

Chiharu
Shizuka-chan!!
Shizuka
Charu!
Chiharu
Great. I'm sorry. You protect me and...
Shizuka
Don't blame yourself, Charu.
Shizuka
It's my bad to overstrain myself when my power is so exhausted.
Chiharu
But...
Shizuka
And you see, I can move now.
Shizuka
Ou— ouch...
Shizuka's mother
Hey, don't force yourself... You almost made my blood freeze...
Shizuka's mother
Thank you, Mrs. Hiroe. You gave her careful treatment...
Chiharu's mother
My pleasure. I was just trying to do what I could.
Chiharu's mother
But it surprised me that the injury wasn't as serious as I had imagined.
Shizuka's mother
Because a diviner who fights against devils is strong.
Chiharu
Then, after the recovery several days later,
Chiharu
can we play together again? Can she fight against devils more?
Shizuka
Charu...
Shizuka's mother
............
Chiharu
Wha—, what...?
Mikoshiba
I asked thee to come here for the farewell.
Chiharu
Farewell!?
Shizuka
To recover from the injury, it seems that I consume too much power.
Shizuka
... You'll see if you take a look.
Chiharu
The jewel is almost completely black...
Chiharu
Then, Shizuka-chan... is leaving the village...?
Shizuka
... Yeah.
Shizuka
I'm sorry. I thought I could stay with you a little more...
Shizuka
But it turns out that I can't...
Chiharu
You don't need to apologize, for it's all because of me...!
Mikoshiba
Anyhow, there isn't much time left.
Mikoshiba
I'm sorry that it cometh so early, but the coming-of-age ceremony willeth be held tomorrow.
Chiharu
Shizuka-chan...
Shizuka
It'll be alright. We will be able to meet outside, Charu!
Chiharu
Yeah, promised!
Chiharu
And, you should also bid farewell with Sunao-chan too.
Mikoshiba
I am afraid that she won't be able to meet in time.
Chiharu
No way...
Shizuka
So tell her that let us meet outside, please.
Chiharu
............ I see.

Chiharu 9

Chiharu
............
Chiharu
She was attacked by a devil here...
Chiharu
Blood was washed away by the rain...
Chiharu
............
Chiharu
(At present, Shizuka-chan is having the ceremony of coming-of-age...)
Chiharu
(I bid farewell with a smile, made the last greeting with a smile...)
Chiharu
(But why am I so unhappy...)
Chiharu
Mr. Todoriki... What's with my feeling...

- Todoriki (Chiharu) -
I am not a psychologist
so I cannot answer Miss Hiroe's question

Chiharu
... So useless.
Chiharu
............
Chiharu
... I am sorry...
Chiharu
(However, there must be a reason for a feeling... If that's the case...
Chiharu
............
Chiharu
(My honest feelings tells me that this is unsatisfactory...)
Chiharu
I want to escort Shizuka-chan properly...
Chiharu
Not that...!
Chiharu
Actually...
Chiharu
(I'm resting assured... Because I smell something in this village...)
Chiharu
(Shizuka-chan's power's reaction...)
Chiharu
Just a little... I'll watch from far away, and that's enough......

Chiharu
The other side of the village... It's the side of that shrine...

Chiharu
Please... I have to reach in time...
Chiharu
I want to see her departing safely...
Chiharu
Because I can't rest assured...
Chiharu
Because here is full of the smell, making me cannot rest assure...

Chiharu
Hah... Hah...
Chiharu
I found it...

'Sorry...'
Knock!
Shizuka
Ah...
Pluff...
Chiharu
Shizuka-chan——!
Mikoshiba
——!?
Mikoshiba
Hiroe's...
Chiharu
Why...!
Pluff...

- Chiharu -
It's cold... I cannot breathe...
I am drifted by the strong torrent...
- Chiharu -
What direction am I heading to...
Up? Down? Right? Left?
- Chiharu -
Being crumpled
turned round and round and round and round
what am I doing
- Chiharu -
............
- Chiharu -
I have to help Shizuha-chan!
Chiharu
Where... Shizuka-chan... Where
Chiharu
—!?
Chiharu
This is, a piece of cloth...?
Chiharu
It's soft...
Chiharu
I'm falling...!

Chiharu & Shizuka 6

Plop...

-Chiharu-
(Thank goodness, this is really Shizuka-chan...)
-Shizuka-
(Charu...?)
-Chiharu-
(Shizuka's jewel has become pitch-black...)

Shizuka
This is the gift for Charu's first victory. Take it.

-Chiharu-
(Thank goodness, it's still here...)
-Shizuka-
(Thank you... Chiharu...)
-Shizuka-
—!?
-Chiharu-
(Shizuka-chan...?)
-Chiharu-
(—!?)
-Chiharu-
(What, are these...)
-Shizuka-
(They are... diviners...)
-Chiharu-
(Shizuka-chan's voice just now...)
- Chiharu -
Drifted away again...

Chiharu

Shizuka
............
Sunao
............
Sunao
Don't make me do this...
Sunao
Charu... You acquired a troublesome power...
Sunao
Shizuka, you tried to protect Charu too much...
Sunao
It's just a rumor...
Sunao
But if I don't do so, I will...!
Shizuka
... I will also become a dead body at the bottom of the water.
Sunao
Eh...
Sunao
............

Next: Part 2

Chiharu & Shizuka 7

Plop...
Chiharu
............
Shizuka
............
Sunao
............
Sunao
Charu really stepped in to help...
Chiharu
............
Sunao
Without you, Shizuka should have sunk to the bottom of water...
Sunao
But you helped her...
Sunao
If so, if so, I... I'd have to do so...
Sunao
Don't make me do this...
Shizuka
............
Chiharu
............
Sunao
Charu... You acquired a troublesome power...
Sunao
Shizuka, you tried to protect Charu too much...
Sunao
Thank you for being with me so far...
Sunao
I want to be your friend too...

BAD END (4)

Sunao 1

- Sunao -
I didn't want to do this
I just had to...
- Sunao -
At that time,
without the word from Shizuka
I would have already killed Charu...

Chiharu
I'm sorry. Though you have been treating me so well...
Sunao
Is that so...
Chiharu
However, I'm proud to know awesome people like you.
Chiharu
So
- Chiharu -
"Eh..."
Shizuka
Wait, Sunao!
Sunao
Wha— what's up, Shizuka!
Sunao
This is, a devil...?
Shizuka
The timing is just right.
Shizuka
Since it's a good chance, let's show her the power of diviners.
Shizuka
I know that it can be dangerous.
Sunao
(Indeed, I am deciding too early. It's not time to judge yet...)
Sunao
... But I think it'll be alright.
Sunao
There'll be no problems. Either of us can fight against the devil alone.
Sunao
The devil and Chiharu
Sunao
shall each be taken care of, and that's enough.
Shizuka
Yeah, exactly.
GI...GAGA...
Chiharu
Heh?
CHIKICHIKICHIKI...KI...
Chiharu
...Uwaaaa! What's this! It's disgusting!
Shizuka
Chiharu, calm down! We'll defeat that!
Sunao
Yes!
Sunao
Leave the enemy to Shizuka. Chiharu, follow me!!
Chiharu
O—okay!!

Next: Chiharu 2

Sunao 2

- Sunao -
I didn't want to do this
I just had to...
- Sunao -
At that time,
without Shizuka's using her magic first
I would have already killed Charu...

Chiharu
Whether it is like what Sunao-chan and Shizuka-chan said
Chiharu
that it is a good devil, I must go and see.
Chiharu
Who!?
- Chiharu -
"Phwuuu!"
Shizuka
Stop!
Chiharu
Shizuka-chan!
Shizuka
See? The flashing light feint attack made by the diviner's power!
Chiharu
Yeah... I was shocked...
Shizuka
Sunao, you should have stopped her properly...
Sunao
Sorry, but Charu ran too fast.
Shizuka
So, shall you give it up now?
Chiharu
............
Chiharu
What if I don't give up?
Shizuka
You might be punished harsher than you can imagine.
Chiharu
—!?
Chiharu
Like kneeing on something like a washboard and piling stones onto legs!?
Shizuka
Can you hole those stones?
[Note] An ancient form of torture called stone-holding (石抱).
Chiharu
No way.
Shizuka
Give it up then.
Chiharu
Hmn, got it. I'll give up though I cannot understand why.
Shizuka
Okay, great.
Sunao
Be more patient and try searching for a devil again,
Sunao
though it might be painstaking.
Shizuka
Still it can be a good experience.
Shizuka
Find it diligently, and check the result of your exercise.

Chiharu & Shizuka 8

- Sunao -
I didn't want to do this
I just had to...
- Sunao -
At that time,
without noting Shizuka's figure
I would have already killed Charu...

Chiharu
((It comes again... I must evade...!))
GA...
Chiharu
Na!
Chiharu
(Why am I stumbled!)
Chiharu
Ah...
- Chiharu -
"Aaaah!!"
Chiharu
Wh—, what...? Noting happened, to me?
Shizuka
Well, Charu, isn't it time to retreat?
Chiharu
Shizuka-chan...!?
Shizuka
It was dangerous.
Shizuka
You were suddenly falling down, so I held you at once without hesitation.
Chiharu
It was not anything of such level like falling down!
Shizuka
Hmn?
Chiharu
I was attacked!
Chiharu
Suddenly attacked by someone I don't know!
Shizuka
... From my perspective, you were falling down to all appearances...
Chiharu
Ugh...
Shizuka
... It's not a misunderstanding, right?
Chiharu
Yeah, yeah...
Dancer
Hey!
Chiharu
Jee!
Shizuka
Ah, dammit, it is the dancer...
Dancer
Don't you know that you must not come here except during a festival or emergency !?
Shizuka
Ye, yes, I know!
Shizuka
I'm just taking a kid wandered into here back...
Chiharu
Dancer, don't you know!? I am attacked by someone!
Dancer
Such thing, I don't know...
Dancer
Isn't it retribution rather than an attack?
Dancer
Because you entered without permission...
Chiharu
Muu... Okay...
Chiharu
I am not staying here where it smells terribly...!
Shizuka
Sorry. We are leaving.

Shizuka
Do as the Romans do.
Shizuka
Follow the village's rules from now on, okay?
Chiharu
... I see.
Shizuka
Okay, great.
Chiharu
But
Shizuka
But what?
Chiharu
I became a diviner here, so I guess I can perhaps know some secrets.
Chiharu
Like what happens when the jewel is completely tainted...
Shizuka
You're concerned about me?
Chiharu
Yeah, just a bit.
Shizuka
Just a bit?…
Shizuka
Haha, but I am happy. Thanks.

Sunao 3

Mikoshiba
But I heard from the daughter of the head family.
Mikoshiba
It seemeth that Hiroe's daughter gained a troublesome power...
Sunao
Yes...
Mikoshiba
Tokime's daughter...
Mikoshiba
I am really counting on thee, but thou couldst not help if thou still treatest this emotionally.
Mikoshiba
Thou art just a little girl after all.
Sunao
... But
Sunao
Then, how can I eliminate Hiroe Chiharu...
Mikoshiba
Even if thou just leavest her alone, the shadow will devour her.
Mikoshiba
If the daughter of the head family still steppeth in to protect her,
Mikoshiba
then thou wouldst have to eliminate them both...
