Chiharu
Ng... Ngg...
Chiharu
Hah...
Chiharu
... Where am I!?
Shizuka
Charu, you woke up?
Chiharu
Shizuka-chan! Great, you are all safe!
Shizuka
Now that you said so, I guess they were real.
Shizuka
Both sinking to the bottom of the water and being purified by Charu...
Pinch
Chiharu
Is it painful?
Shizuka
Pae~in...
Chiharu
Then, it is real, given that rule.
Shizuka
Seems so.
Chiharu
But, where am I...?
Shizuka
I don't know either. I am sure that we are alive though...
Chiharu
A girl's room?
Shizuka
Or maybe the Heaven that looks like one?
Chiharu
Ehhhh, no way! See it as we are alive.
Sunao
You are both alive.
Shizuka
Sunao.
Chiharu
It's Sunao-chan!
Sunao
And this is my home.
Chiharu
So, Sunao helped us.
Sunao
Right, I did...
Chiharu
Thank you.
Shizuka
I would like to express my gratitude too. Thank you, Sunao.
Sunao
Ye...
Shizuka
Anything wrong with you, Sunao...
Sunao
The same question to Shizuka and Charu. Like, being drifted away.
Shizuka
If you put it that way...
Sunao
............
Sunao
Sorry. I didn't. I wasn't trying to help you...
Sunao
Instead, I attempted to kill you...
Shizuka
Huh? What are you talking about...?
Sunao
Anyway, take it easy, okay?
Sunao
I have a lot to say and a lot to ask about.
Sunao
And I prepared breakfast too.
Shizuka
I don't feel like eating anything...
Chiharu
... Sunao-chan was going to...?

Chiharu
Sunao-chan...
Chiharu
The things you said just now, are they true...?
Sunao
Yes...
Sunao
It's true that I attempted to kill you both.
Chiharu
But why... I don't understand...
Sunao
I play a role that eliminates anyone who goes against the village's will...
Sunao
Therefore, I was attempting to kill you. Mainly... Charu...
Chiharu
Me...
Sunao
If Charu wavered over the contract or said she wanted to go back...
Sunao
Or tried to eliminate the Holy Wavering Deity...
Sunao
Went deep into the sanctuary of the shrine...
Chiharu
――!?
Sunao
Being drifted away in the river with Shizuka was out of my expectation.
Sunao
The conditions put forward by Mikoshiba-sama was satisfied for several times.
Sunao
But Charu narrowly escaped from those moments.
Sunao
Because of Shizuka's intervention...
Shizuka
In short, Sunao is Mikoshiba's puppet...
Shizuka
An assassin that executes those who disagree with her.
Shizuka
So Charu who went beyond her expectation, and I who wanted to guard her, were targeted.
Sunao
Yes...
Shizuka
I can't believe that you are her puppet...
Sunao
But, it is the truth...
Sunao
I didn't want to do it either.
Sunao
I treated you two as my friends, so I didn't want to hurt you.
Sunao
But the unexpected thing happened...
Sunao
Charu became sensitive to weird atmospheres,
Sunao
and Shizuka wanted to guard Charu, which raised Mikoshiba-sama's vigilance...
Chiharu
But you didn't kill us.
Sunao
............
Chiharu
You didn't. Sunao-chan helped us.
Shizuka
Why is that...?
Sunao
I heard what Shizuka said besides the river, and that stopped me from doing so...
Shizuka
What did I say...?
Sunao
You said... "I will also become a dead body at the bottom of the water."


All 9

Shizuka
What did I say...?
Sunao
You said... "I will also become a dead body at the bottom of the water."
Shizuka
How did that very sentence stop you, Sunao...?
Sunao
... As you said, I am a puppet.
Sunao
What I know about myself is confined to my usefulness to the Land of the Rising Sun
Sunao
and my duty to deal with situations that threaten the village.
Sunao
I didn't know what would happen when I no longer fight as a diviner...
Sunao
Or not exactly, I didn't dare to think even if I was doubtful...
Chiharu
Doubtful...?
Sunao
Yes...
Sunao
I did know that a diviner will go out someday.
Sunao
But, even if I live outside the village... In the nearest village,
Sunao
I have never seen any other diviner...
Shizuka
At that point, my words...
Sunao
Yes, an awful scene suddenly flashed through my mind…
Sunao
Could all of those who went out... became the dead body at the bottom of the water...
Shizuka
That's the reason you helped us...
Sunao
Yes, to ask you about what happened...
Shizuka
Then, it's my turn to talk... About what I heard during the coming-of-age ceremony.
Chiharu
In other words, from the person that I witnessed...
Shizuka
Yeah, Mikoshiba said these shamelessly to me...

Mikoshiba
Let me tell thou the truth before thou departest.
Shizuka
The truth, right?
Mikoshiba
Exactly. The truth about ye diviners.
Shizuka
... Please tell me.
Mikoshiba
Diviners are existences that shatter devils,
Shizuka
Yes.
Mikoshiba
and the existences that will become devils in the future as well.
Shizuka
――!?
Shizuka
Eh, that means...
Mikoshiba
That literally means ye will become devils in the future.
Shizuka
No way, is it a joke...?
Shizuka
If that's true, why did you withhold such an important thing.
Mikoshiba
Such a harsh thing shouldn't be let out easily.
Shizuka
... Does my mother or anyone in the village know that?
Shizuka
And knowing so, you still turn us into diviners?
Mikoshiba
People who know are limited to us priestesses and dancers.
Shizuka
I don't understand...
Shizuka
If we who shatter devils are going to become devils,
Shizuka
isn't that a vicious circle? It's meaningless for us to become diviners.
Mikoshiba
That said, the wishes made in order to save the Land of the Rising Sun do come true.
Shizuka
――!?
Shizuka
Then, after that, we are...!?
Mikoshiba
Used up.
Shizuka
............ It's too cruel...
Shizuka
Didn't we just literally sacrificed our souls...!
Mikoshiba
Exactly.
Shizuka
............
Shizuka
Yeah... No... It's not time to cry...!
Shizuka
If I literally sacrificed my soul to the Land of the Rising Sun...
Shizuka
my honor can be maintained...!
Shizuka
Even if I become a devil, what I have achieved won't be wasted.
Shizuka
Proud of that, I can fight till I eventually fall...!
Shizuka
I see, the last ceremony was about acknowledging this truth and enduring till the end...
Mikoshiba
No.
Shizuka
――!?
Shizuka
Then why should you tell the truth!
Mikoshiba
Thou art becoming a devil before long.
Mikoshiba
The reason? Because it happeneth when thy jewel loseth its shine.
Shizuka
............ Wait...
Shizuka
What is the ceremony of coming of age about...?
Mikoshiba
Discarding the diviner that hath made the wish fulfilled and protected the village, and turning her into a devil.
Mikoshiba
No diviner ever goeth out of the village.
Shizuka
-!!
Shizuka
Mikoshibaーーーーーー!!
- Mikoshiba -
"Sorry..."
Pluff!
Shizuka
Ah...
Mikoshiba
Be drown in the waterfall basin... Be stifled and agonized... And become the game of the next diviner...

All 10

Sunao
............
Shizuka
These are all that I heard...
Shizuka
I have told you what you want to know, Sunao.
Shizuka
As you have worried, no one ever goes out or anything.
Shizuka
Everyone was trapped at the bottom of the water and never made it...
Shizuka
Now that you heard it... Are you gonna kill me?
Sunao
... I don't want to kill.
Sunao
Neither do I enjoy being a puppet from whom everything is concealed...
Shizuka
Then, please be with us.
Sunao
But my dad and mom may be killed by Mikoshiba!
Shizuka
What... You mean you were threatened that way...?
Sunao
Yep...
Sunao
So I had to choose who to kill...
Sunao
Shizuka and Charu... Or my dad and mom...
Sunao
I dwelled in Mikoshiba's home, tried searching it, attempting to find a vital point to hold over her...
Sunao
I tried to find things like documentation, passbooks,
Sunao
or anything that could be utilized to threaten her in turn...
Sunao
But I found nothing...
Shizuka
I know I won't be killed... I know Sunao is kind...
Shizuka
Actually, you are not going to kill, and I don't know what's behind it.
Chiharu
What I know is just the kind Sunao!
Sunao
Sorry, Shizuka... Charu...
Chiharu
And even when left unattended, a diviner will be killed anyway, right!?
Chiharu
If so, let's launch a preemptive strike!
Sunao
Charu?
Chiharu
The old woman doesn't know I and Shizuka are well, right?
Chiharu
If so, let's go back and scold her secretly!
Chiharu
Then pump her for all the secrets!
Chiharu
About diviners and devils, the reason to sink diviners,
Chiharu
and about Sunao-chan, everything!
Chiharu
It'll be great if everyone can be saved that way!
Sunao
... Quite straightforward. But what if we keep unfound...
Shizuka
Wait, I agree to punish her,
Shizuka
but this time, I think the picture may be a bit more complex.
Chiharu
In what way...?
Shizuka
Charu and I fought against some followers, right...?
Chiharu
Yeah, those without a labyrinth?
Sunao
Without a labyrinth...?
Shizuka
Yeah, I thought so when I fought before too,
Shizuka
but now I think the case might just be the opposite, which means it actually had a labyrinth.
Chiharu
It didn't have, but it had...
Chiharu
... Ah.

- Todoriki (Chiharu) -
Because the so-called truth
may be lying in the very unexpected vicinity.

Chiharu
In, the vicinity...
Chiharu
Shizuka-chan... You mean the village is a labyrinth...?
Sunao
How can that be...!!
Shizuka
It could, as Charu said.
Shizuka
At some point, a devil swallowed the whole Tokime's Village,
Shizuka
and under Mikoshiba's manipulation, it is eroding us diviners' power...
Shizuka
If so, the picture that we will be killed eventually,
Shizuka
the villainy of threatening Sunao and eliminating the undesirable,
Shizuka
the presence of followers without a labyrinth can all be explained.
Sunao
... Indeed they can be explained.
Sunao
However, if that's the case, everything should have been circulating inside...
Sunao
Luring people unfamiliar with the conventions like me and Charu in
Sunao
could only cause unexpected things like what's happening now.
Shizuka
That could be owed to the devil's stupidity
Shizuka
or impatience for something.
Shizuka
These are no more than some guesswork though...
Chiharu
However, this is probably the evidence that the village is a labyrinth.
Shizuka
What is that plate?
Chiharu
A smartphone.
Shizuka
The rumored telephone...
Chiharu
This is a map, but Tokime's Village is missing in the image.
Sunao
In that case, the village really already fell into the hand of a devil...?
Chiharu
Yeah, there must be an enemy to defeat!
Shizuka
Though I don't know about the smartphone, I believe so as long as you believe.
Shizuka
Let's hurry up...!
Shizuka
Sunao, okay?
Sunao
Sure...!
Sunao
You don't know what will happen if it detects your power and knows you are alive...
Chiharu
Before everyone is involved in, let's defeat the village's devil!
Shizuka
Right, let's hurry to the village.
Sunao
I should tell my dad and mom to escape soon too.

All 11

Chiharu
Shizuka-chan, Sunao-chan, the devil's reaction is getting stronger...
Sunao
Shizuka's reasoning may be correct...
Sunao
Is everyone fine...
Chiharu
My mother and the man in the village...
Shizuka
And my mother...
Sunao
Devils are existences that consume humans by nature. Since things have gone beyond expectation...
Shizuka
We should first confirm the village's situation...
Sunao
True...
Shizuka
............

Shizuka
No sign of human...
Chiharu
Yeah...
Shizuka
Everyone in the village is wiped out.
Shizuka
Even before things about the village is leaked to the outside...?
Chiharu
But considering the devil is still here, it might not be the case that it has already done so...!
Sunao
I agree.
Sunao
This place would have been useless if it had finished feeding itself.
Sunao
Let's stop thinking pessimistically.
Chiharu
Besides, can it be that it is waiting for us?
Sunao
... Thinking from the devil's perspective,
Sunao
since a diviners meal is more appealing for a devil,
Sunao
it might want to entomb us here and reset the situation...
Chiharu
Yeah, it already anticipated our return...!
Shizuka
The devil would be alright with some people involved absent...
Shizuka
If so, it's meaningful to keep the village and spare the villagers' lives...
Chiharu
However, you can't get the answer by just thinking...
Shizuka
Unfortunately, the only fact that we know is that
Shizuka
the devil is still alive, and the villagers' situation remains unknown...
Sunao
............
Shizuka
What's wrong, Sunao?
Sunao
Nah, I just have some ill feelings.

All 12

Sunao
(I am probably just anxious because of the contingency...)
Sunao
(I thought too much...)
Shizuka
This is...!
Sunao
Shizuka felt it too!?
Shizuka
Yeah, I did... But from where...
Shizuka
What about you, Chiharu?
Chiharu
I have absolutely no idea... But it surely lies somewhere nearby!
Sunao
Nearby...
Chiharu
Nearby...
Shizuka
Nearby...
Shizuka
—!?
Shizuka
Charu!!
Chiharu
What?
Shizuka
Behind you!
...!!
Chiharu
Aaaah!!
Shizuka
Charu—!
Chiharu
............
Shizuka
Other followers also emerge from the shadow...
Shizuka
Sunao, that way Charu might later be—!
Sunao
............
Shizuka
Sunao!
Sunao
............
Shizuka
Sunao!
- Sunao -
I should have known this, but why...

BAD END (5)

All 13

Sunao
(It reminds me about that, Mikoshiba...)

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.

Sunao
—!?
Sunao
Shizuka, Charu! Your shadows!
Shizuka
Charu, behind you!!
...!!
Chiharu
Su Riaa!
............
Chiharu
It evaded my hit...!!
Sunao
Hit it soon!
...!?
Chiharu
Sorry, Sunao-chan, but I can't believe that they just evaded...
Sunao
I didn't recall it until just now either.
Shizuka
But you realized that they came from the shadows anyway.
Sunao
Mikoshiba's word came to my mind.
Sunao
She said the shadow would devour Charu...
Chiharu
Exactly, they are the same kind of followers that Shizuka fought...!
Shizuka
It was at night, so it shouldn't be related to shadows...
Shizuka
However, Mikoshiba knew that, which means...
Sunao
Everything, including the center of the clan, is apparently under manipulation...
Chiharu
More importantly, we have to anyhow make it before the nightfall, right?
Shizuka
Yeah, but we don't even know the location of the devil at this point...
Shizuka
So, let's go to check if everyone is safe.
Shizuka
Maybe we can feel the power of the devil during our action.
Chiharu
Hmm, that's it!
Sunao
Then, I am going to Mikoshiba's home...
Chiharu
Won't that be dangerous...?
Sunao
There is possibly some information I can collect.
Sunao
As the center of the village, her home may be where the devil hides too.
Shizuka
... Please don't force yourself.
Sunao
Okay.
Shizuka
Then, Charu,
Shizuka
this may be dangerous, but let's go separately.
Shizuka
Time before the sunset is precious.
Chiharu
I agree!
Shizuka
Then, let me teach you how to use telepathy.
Shizuka
That's the technique that we diviners can use to transmit what we think.
Chiharu
Ah.
Chiharu
(That's the same thing to the voice I heard under the waterfall.

Chiharu 11

Chiharu
(Did everyone escape...)
Chiharu
(or are they killed by the devil...?)
Chiharu
(If so, my mom would be in big trouble too!)
Chiharu
Nah—! No way no way no way!
Chiharu
(Because it somehow feels weird...)
Chiharu
(If a devil is an existence that hurts people, and if it manipulates the village,)
Chiharu
(then the narrative of "wishing for the Land of the Rising Sun" sounds weird.)
Chiharu
(Yeah, it feels contradictory.)
Chiharu
(Plus, if it wants to consume diviners, why not do so straightforward?)
Chiharu
(Instead, it formulates the trivial rules like the coming-of-age ceremony...)
Chiharu
(And made a phone call to my home...)
Chiharu
Hmn——...Hmnnn?
Chiharu
The phone call was made by the old woman...
Chiharu
Ah, that's enough! They messed up my mind.
Chiharu
How would Todoriki Kouichi think in this situation...

- Todoriki (Chiharu) -
You need to accept weird truths.

Chiharu
That's the triumphal line after the case is closed. How is that supposed to help the current situation...
Chiharu
(However, with weirdness intermingled...)
Chiharu
(Designating the scope, that's what matters...!)
Chiharu
............
Chiharu
Huh... Is it even meaningful to keep searching this way?
Chiharu
I already searched everywhere that I know. It must have escaped. Yeah.
Chiharu
(This... is not a follower of the devil...)
Chiharu
(The smell of the strange case from the shrine's direction...?)
Chiharu
(It seems stronger...)
Chiharu
............
Chiharu
Ah, I can't, I can't do that!
Chiharu
It's not time to be distracted by other things.
Chiharu
Hm!
Chiharu
... The next would be the devil's followers!?
............!!
Chiharu
Bring them on!
Chiharu
I am going to impose punishment on y'all!

Chiharu 12

............
Chiharu
A chink in the armor!
...!!
Chiharu's voice
Execution!
............!?!?
Chiharu
Good, good, it feels great.
Plump
Chiharu
Hmn?
Dancer
............
Chiharu
Uwawa... Are, are you okay...!?
Chiharu
Well, this person, yeah, is the person who danced!
Dancer
............
Chiharu
(Did she just fall off as the devil's follower was defeated...?)
Chiharu
(Not that, but Shizuka-chan's mother said that a devil manipulates people...)
Chiharu
Or something...
Chiharu
(A person being manipulated...)
Chiharu
Correct, there is a devil's imprint on her.
Dancer
............
Chiharu
Sorry, but I have to go...
Dancer
............
Chiharu
Hmn—? No, there isn't, seemingly...?
Chiharu
(Is she actually someone escaping?)
Chiharu
(I thought there should be nobody by then, yet there are people who escaped slower...)
Chiharu
(Again...!?)
Gasagasa...
Chiharu
............
Pa...
Chiharu
Go to hell!
Shizuka's mother
Come here, Ms. Hiroe! An open field is a better place for fighting!
Chiharu's mother
The place is better for fighting, but Ms. Tokime, this sword isn't, right!
Shizuka's mother
We have no choice but to do it ourselves anyway!
Chiharu
Mom and Shizuka's mom!
Chiharu's mother
Chiharu!?
Shizuka's mother
Chiharu-chan!?
...!!
Shizuka's mother
Before that...
Shizuka's mother
Tokime Isshin Style... Meter-Leap Decapitation!!
Chiharu
Meter-Leap Decapitation—!?
............
Shizuka's mother
Ah, the sword...
............!!!
Chiharu
Aah, it's okay! I'll defeat it!!
Chiharu
After that, we should contact Shizuka's mother and Sunao-chan!!

Chiharu 13

...!?
Chiharu
Is mom okay!? What about Shizuka's mother?
Chiharu's mother
Yeah, I am fine. Thanks, Chiharu...
Shizuka's mother
You are such a diviner... There's an untraversable gap between us.
Chiharu
No, you did an awesome job just now!
Shizuka's mother
Ha, thanks.
Chiharu
Haven't you both escaped?
Chiharu
I searched over and over but found no one.
Chiharu's mother
Of course, we evacuated with others...
Chiharu's mother
However, monsters emerges from shadows on our way,
Chiharu's mother
and then we were left behind.
Shizuka's mother
Why did they target us, I don't understand at all...
Chiharu's mother
Anyway, Chiharu
Chiharu
Hmn?
Chiharu's mother
I am not requiring your "hmn"! Where did you go!!
Chiharu
Whew!
Chiharu's mother
You just suddenly disappeared, and never came back.
Chiharu's mother
Even monsters like that emerged, do you know how concerned I was...!
Chiharu
Ah... I'm sorry...
Chiharu
I was worried about the coming-of-age ceremony, so I went to see.
Chiharu
Then I fell into the waterfall basin with Shizuka...
Chiharu's mother
Into the waterfall basin...!?
Chiharu's mother
Who did so...!? Is your body alright...!?
Chiharu
As for the body, it's as healthy as you see, and I can even fight with it quite well...
Shizuka's mother
Well, you said you fell into the waterfall basin during the ceremony...?
Chiharu
... Yeah
Chiharu
It's like, the coming-of-age ceremony is akin to a ceremony that kills diviners...
Chiharu
During which we are turned into devils...
Shizuka's mother
It's a bit beyond my comprehension. Is Shizuka alright?
Shizuka's mother
She said she would contact me...
Chiharu
Yeah, we came together.
Shizuka's mother
... Just leave the details untill we evacuate to home.
Chiharu
Then we should also take the dancer I met just now.
Shizuka's mother
Dancer?
Chiharu
Yeah, a dancer that fell off just now...
Shizuka's mother
But there is nobody...?
Chiharu
What...?
Chiharu
That's true...
Chiharu's mother
Was there actually anyone...?
Chiharu
Sure!
Shizuka's mother
Disappeared all in a sudden...
Shizuka's mother
Though it's incredible, there is yet another incredible thing...
Chiharu
............
...!!
Chiharu
Why they always follow and target us?
Shizuka's mother
That's what I am talking about.
Shizuka
But, from now on, we have to spare no effort.
Sunao
Okay, let's go inside.
Shizuka's mother
Shizuka...
Shizuka
I'm back, mom. I'll talk about the situation later.
Shizuka's mother
We are talking precisely about that.

Shizuka 3

Shizuka
A devil is lurking in my hometown.
Shizuka
(I am trying to explain it myself, yet I find it growingly confusing...)
Shizuka
(The customs that we have observed so far, as wells as the wishes made for the Land of the Rising Sun,)
Shizuka
(I don't know if they are still trustworthy, just because of the devil's lurking in ...)
Shizuka
(Even our becoming devils, was because it wants to kill us in a nefarious manner...?)
Shizuka
(It was kept secret from us because of that...?)
Shizuka
(Nah, that thing itself might be made-up...)
Shizuka
............
Shizuka
(The hometown)
Shizuka
(The hometown that I have always love, now seems completely fake...)
Shizuka
(I was fettered by the diviner-consuming rule in the fake world...)
Shizuka
............
Shizuka
(No, I can't... I can't think negatively...)
Shizuka
(Even if I was born in a fake world...)
Shizuka
The existence of my mom is real...
Shizuka
So other people... can't be fake either!
Shizuka
—!?
Shizuka
That house... is illuminated...!

Shizuka 4

Shizuka
Anyone there!?
Ooh! Hooray, everyone!
Our diviner is back!
"Uwa—!!"
Welcome back, Shizuka-chan!
Thanks, you are back...!
I wondered if you won't come back after the ceremony.
Shizuka
Well...
Shizuka
I was worried if any contingency would happen, so I came back with Charu and Sunao.
All three of you.
Then we will soon be saved.
Shizuka
But why are you all gathering here?
Mikoshiba-sama suddenly came,
saying that monsters were emerging, and ordered us to hide before things would cool down.
Shizuka
(Noticing that we were back and then ordered the villagers to evacuate...?)
Shizuka
(As expected, she was trying to wipe us out and revert to the original condition...)
Shizuka
............
Shizuka-chan, what's up...?
Shizuka
(However, everyone is possibly forged... just like the followers...)
Shizuka
... Is everyone real...?
Real...?
Shizuka
... So—sorry...!
Shizuka
It's the first time that the village becomes like this, so I became anxious.
It's fine, because Shizuka has always been protecting us.
That's it. We also know that you became restless after getting injured.
I believe in you all, so please rest assures.
Shizuka
(They are probably real... I'm justified to think so...)
Shizuka
It will be fine, thanks, madam.

`

Shizuka 5

Shizuka
Okay! After getting rid of the anxiety, I am fine now!
Shizuka
I am gonna defeat the devil!
Sorry for counting fully on you at this point, but please do your best!
Shizuka
Course I will.
Shizuka
We diviners are born for this moment!
Shizuka
By the way, have all the villagers gathered here?
Shizuka
Since this is an emergency, has anyone evacuated to the Great Sanctuary?
No, everyone should have been here.
Shizuka
... Then even if any contingency happens, it should be fine with my mother here...
Indeed, with the head family here, we feel much more relieved.
Shizuka
Can anyone call my mother?
Nah, wait... I haven't seen the head family's people.
Shizuka
Eh... Nobody saw them...!?
I haven't...
Shizuka
It can't be true...
Shizuka
And also, yeah... Where's Chiharu's mother!?
The one who works as a nurse?
Shizuka
Yeah, she gave treatment to me!
Sorry, I didn't...
Shizuka
But, what about when she is evacuating!?
We should have been together till then.
Yeah, we witnessed that too.
But I don't think I ever saw her since evacuated to this house...
Shizuka
... I'll search!

Shizuka
How can that be, only my mother and Chiharu's mother aren't evacuating...
Shizuka
The only explanation I can come up with is they got targeted...
Shizuka
(But, why...?)

Sunao
... Thinking from the devil's perspective,
Sunao
since a diviners meal is more appealing for a devil,
Sunao
it might want to entomb us here and reset the situation...

Shizuka
Killing all relatives involved...?
Shizuka
—!?
Shizuka
Telepathy... From Sunao...?

Sunao 4

Sunao
............
Sunao
(Making the situation so complicated, it's probably all my bad...)
Sunao
(Because I became a diviner without Mikoshiba's permission...)
Sunao
(And I was punished by bearing the role of a murderer...)

Mikoshiba
What, she already became a diviner!?
Sunao's father
But Sunao did nothing wrong!
Sunao's father
It's our negligence that we didn't tell her about the diviner...!
Mikoshiba
It's a grave crime...
Mikoshiba
Have ye forgotten that ye are born in the branch family of Tokime Clan!
Sunao's father
We are fully aware of that...!
Mikoshiba
If so, things shouldn't have become like this.
Mikoshiba
Though ye are too naive, with a daughter entering the age of menarche,
Mikoshiba
for what reason ye dare not telling her about that...
Sunao's mother
............
Sunao's mother
We wanted to make her interested in that, about diviners...
Mikoshiba
Ye fool!
Sunao
No!
Sunao
Papa and mama did nothing wrong either!
Sunao
It's me, it's me who willfully made a wish and became a magical girl.
Mikoshiba
Were they called like that in the modern world?
Mikoshiba
Then, what did thou wish for?
Sunao
... For my papa and mama.
Mikoshiba
Trivial... Wasteful...
Sunao
How is that trivial...!?
Sunao
Is it so bad to make a wish for important people!?
Mikoshiba
Thou under the bloodline of Tokime, let me tell thou what's after that wish.
Mikoshiba
... Come and listen
Sunao
Wha-what...
- Mikoshiba -
"Thou wouldst have to
redeem thy parents' crime with thy own behavior."
- Mikoshiba -
"Even if thou hast become a diviner wastefully
There are mountains of things thou canst do in the village."
- Mikoshiba -
"If anyone going against my intension appeareth,
Thou shalt kill that person. "
- Mikoshiba -
"Thou cannot refuse to do so."
- Mikoshiba -
"Kill others to redeem your crime
or thy parents die to redeem your crime
thou shalt choose one between the two."

Sunao
(Still, quite scary...)
Sunao
(But if I dealt with the devil faster, maybe I can help my parents too...)
Sunao
............
Sunao
Ensure Mikoshiba there if she is alive, and question her after the devil is defeated...
Sunao
When returned to sanity, ask her about what she thought before that...
............!!
Sunao
I'm coming in! I got things to do!

Sunao 5

Creak...
Sunao
Mikoshiba-sama...
Sunao
............
Sunao
She really evacuated with other villagers...?
Sunao
(Or, maybe, became a puppet of the devil...)
Sunao
............
Sunao
Not here...
Sunao
(Take this chance to search the shelves that I couldn't when Mikoshiba is here...)
Sunao
(... A gap in the wardrobe.)
Sunao
—!?
Sunao
(Something is leaking out faint light...)
Sunao
............
Sunao
... This is an old computer...
Sunao
(This absolutely shouldn't be found in this village...)
Sunao
............
Sunao
It is usable...
Sunao
Password...
Sunao
............
Sunao
Oh gosh!
............
Sunao
There are many followers in this room... and outside too...
Sunao
which shouldn't be surprising since this is Mikoshiba's home...
Sunao
It's like the followers don't come out until they gather in groups...
Sunao
(Anyway, I'm contacting Shizuka for help when fighting...)
Sunao
And I must defend the computer to the last.

Sunao 6

Sunao
Disappear from here!
............!?!?
Sunao
Hah... Hah...
Sunao
Though I messed pretty much everything up...
Sunao
The computer... seems... intact...
Sunao
Huh...
Sunao
(Password...)
Sunao
............
Sunao
(1234...)
Sunao
(Of course it isn't...)
Sunao
(But I guess at such an age, what she can remember is limited...)
Sunao
(The common sense when people used computers this old should be pretty outdated too...)
Sunao
(Somehow I don't think it should be that complex...)
Sunao
............
Sunao
(Information that I have collected for revenging someday...)
Sunao
(Seemingly complex things that I have remembered somewhere, like words... numbers...)
Sunao
(The number of the safe box...)
Sunao
—!?
Sunao
It logs me in...!
Sunao
(There aren't many files...)
Click, click click...
Sunao
(It's connected to the internet...)
Sunao
(Mail...)
Click...
Sunao
(Nothing... Neither any in the recycle bin...)
Sunao
............
Click
Sunao
(But there isn't much free space left...)
Sunao
(Commonly accessed folders)
Click
Sunao
Ah...
Sunao
(A lot of audio files...)
Click
Sunao
............ It's muted?
Sunao
Ah, earphones...
Sunao
............
Sunao
This is...

Shizuka
I'm sorry, Sunao! There are many followers on my way too!
Sunao
It's okay. Take it easy. I already defeated them here...
Shizuka
... But, you don't sound well?
Sunao
Because I underwent a struggle.
Shizuka
You got hurt...?
Sunao
I'm fine.
Sunao
(Is it something that I can say out easily...?)
Sunao
............
Shizuka
Can you help me with my searching later...?
Sunao
Searching?
Shizuka
Yeah.
Shizuka
My mom and Charu's mom went missing...
Sunao
How coincidental that they are you two's...
Sunao
That aside, do you have any idea about where to search...?
Shizuka
That's exactly what I want to know...
Shizuka
—!?
Shizuka
Wait, I got telepathy from Charu...
Sunao
(May as well... carry it to the grave ...)

Next: Sunao 7 (Unlocked after clearing All 22)

All 14

Chiharu's mother
............ Hah
Shizuka's mother
Ms. Hiroe...
Chiharu's mother
The existence of both diviners and Tokime Clan... I haven't settled for them till just now.
Shizuka's mother
... I understand your feeling.
Shizuka's mother
It's hard for me to imagine that the whole village lies inside a labyrinth...
Chiharu
I'm sorry for the abrupt comment...
Chiharu's mother
You don't have to, Chiharu. We are just a bit surprised.
Chiharu's mother
As your mother, I already prepared for the worst the time when you became a diviner.
Chiharu's mother
It's okay for me to challenge my common sense to accept them.
Shizuka's mother
Plus, it is harsher for you diviners...
Shizuka
However, we still have no idea about how real they are...
Shizuka
Though I know it clear that I was almost killed my Mikoshiba,
Shizuka
that Sunao was threatened by Mikoshiba to become an assassin,
Shizuka
and, that followers suddenly emerge from nowhere in the village...
Sunao
What about that we may... someday become devils...
Shizuka
Just read it as that Mikoshiba was fooling us and attempting to kill us in a nefarious manner...
Shizuka
It makes sense to think so, so I don't think it is the fact.
Shizuka
............
Shizuka's mother
What's wrong, Shizuka...?
Shizuka
... Just now, I became worried after some consideration.
Shizuka
If, I mean if the village really is a labyrinth of the devil,
Shizuka
The sceneries and people that I have seen might be no more than phantoms...
Chiharu
I and my mother came from outside, I can guarantee we are real!
Chiharu
And Shizuka-chan's mother was also attacked by followers,
Chiharu
so she can't be fake either!
Shizuka
Charu...
Shizuka's mother
Then from whose womb were you born?
Shizuka
That's...
Sunao
Don't think too much about the weird stuff, just focus on the here and now.
Shizuka
Yeah, sorry.
Chiharu
Anyway, there is a devil, make no mistake.
Chiharu
Let's punish it hard and find out the old woman!
Chiharu
Or we may lose the chance to question her.
Shizuka
If manipulated by the devil, she might lose her memories.
Sunao
Ah, that's...
Shizuka's mother
... You all should go now.
Chiharu
It's evening already...!
Chiharu
If we don't defeat it before the sunset, it will turn out the way that night did!
Shizuka
Right, when darkness falls, it enables the devil to do whatever it wants...
Chiharu
But, is it okay to leave behind our mothers?!?
Shizuka's mother
If it just comes the devil's followers, I am fully capable of dealing with them.
Chiharu
Even when the sword is broken!?
Shizuka's mother
So I want you to do me a favor before leaving
Chiharu
What...?
Bang!!
Chiharu
—!?
Chiharu
A lot of swords... In the wardrobe...
Shizuka's mother
Can you infuse the power of diviners into these swords?
Shizuka
I see.
Chiharu
What does it mean?
Shizuka
The power of diviners can be infused to different items.
Shizuka
If you infuse the power to weapons like these,
Shizuka
they become weapons that can be used to fight against the devil.
Chiharu
Ama—zing!
Shizuka's mother
So please come and infuse your power before leaving
Shizuka's mother
We have techniques, but not your power.
Chiharu
I see! We'll put it all in!
Shizuka
Sunao, you can come and help too!
Sunao
O—okay!
Shizuka
The only question left is where is the devil...
Sunao
Well, there is one sword left though.
Shizuka's mother
It's the treasure, so I guess we should leave it there?
Shizuka
It was infused the power of generations of Tokime's diviners.
Sunao
I see. It's an important thing.
Shizuka's mother
But the further story of the sword
Shizuka's mother
shall be told to Shizuka when she comes back.
Shizuka
What is that feeling of being "halfway" there...
Shizuka's mother
Be cautious.
Shizuka
... Okay, I understand.

All 15

Shizuka
So, got any idea after you both patrolled around the village...?
Chiharu
Nothing at all here...
Chiharu
Still, I feel the shrine smells wrong.
Sunao
I went to Mikoshiba's home and find nothing in particular either...
Shizuka
The same to me, actually.
Shizuka
I checked if it was safe and patrolled there, but found nothing worth mentioning...
Shizuka
Do all of us really feel nothing...?
Sunao
I did feel the atmosphere of the devil.
Sunao
But, how can I put it properly... I think it's flat or even...
Sunao
It has some weeny changes, but the intensity of the reaction remains the same...
Chiharu
I guess feel the same.
Chiharu
Just feel "it doesn't quite change" and meanwhile search for everybody.
Chiharu
What about Shizuka-chan?
Shizuka
Unfortunately, the same...
Shizuka
Even an idea about whether it is approaching or leaving would be good...
Chiharu
Yet the distance remains the same even when we are moving...
Sunao
It doesn't make sense with three of us all feel so...
Chiharu
Hmn, right...
Sunao
It has some weeny changes because it is hiding somewhere...
Chiharu
Hiding... Hiding... Hmm, it somehow feels right.
Sunao
............?
Chiharu
It is time to ask Todoriki Kouichi
Shizuka
Who?
Sunao
Ah, a character in a drama?
Chiharu
Sunao-chan knows him!?
Sunao
Just the name and nothing else.
Chiharu
I see...
Shizuka
So, what can that Mr. Todoriki do?
Chiharu
Become Mr. Todoriki who solves cases in my mind and then ask him.
Chiharu
Hmnーーー
Chiharu
Mr. Todoriki, the reaction remains the same however I move,
Chiharu
what should I do at this point!?

- Todoriki (Chiharu) -
The culprit is lurking around you
That's for sure
You can try removing the map in your mind
- Todoriki (Chiharu) -
The world perceived as a flat plain
actually comprises three-dimensional structures like mountains and the sky
You should know that
- Todoriki (Chiharu) -
Try considering based on that
- Todoriki (Chiharu) -
In this world
the so-called truth
may be lying in the very unexpected vicinity

Chiharu
Huh... That's what Todoriki told me.
Shizuka
You said "told"... But it's all your self-performance...
Chiharu
I feel impersonating make my mind smarter.
Sunao
But I do believe that there are some perspectives that we have so far missed out...
Sunao
Considering the differences between two- and three-dimension...
Shizuka
Got any idea...?
Sunao
Yeah...
Sunao
To be frank, I think it's underground.
Shizuka
Underground...?
Sunao
If you think about it from a two-dimensional perspective,
Sunao
your distance to the devil should have been approaching zero meters sooner or later,
Sunao
yet, if it is somewhere 200 meters below the ground,
Sunao
The difference of the reaction as you move, if any, won't feel quite significant.
Chiharu
With nothing in the sky, so it must be underground.
Shizuka
But, under the ground of the village...
Shizuka
——!?
Sunao
Do you know that...?
Shizuka
Yeah... Just one...!

Shizuka
By the way, have all the villagers gathered here?
Shizuka
Since this is an emergency, has anyone evacuated to the Great Sanctuary?
No, everyone should have been here.

Shizuka
The Great Sanctuary...
Chiharu
Where is that?
Shizuka
Deep inside the Holy Music Stage that Charu entered, that's where the ancient sanctuary locates...
Chiharu
The place that smells awful...!
Shizuka
Charu probably felt something at the very beginning...
Shizuka
The so-called truth may be lying in the very unexpected vicinity
Chiharu
Exactly!
Sunao
Then, let's go.
Shizuka
Okay, we are running out of time. Hurry to the Great Sanctuary.

All 16

Chiharu
It smells stronger just as expected...
Shizuka
Is the smell Charu talked about exactly a case-related feeling?
Shizuka
For example, feeling the power from a devil, is it relevant?
Chiharu
Well... Not something that should be called power.
Chiharu
It's a feeling that awful things are going to happen, and the unpleasant feeling nauseates my chest.
Shizuka
You have always felt it from here, right...
Sunao
We can't know what it really is until we go inside...
Chiharu
Yeah...
Chiharu
By the way, what is the Great Sanctuary Shizuka talked about...?
Shizuka
The Great Sanctuary is a place to worship the god,
Shizuka
like Cubey who realizes wishes
Shizuka
and diviners that have fought for the Land of the Rising Sun.
Sunao
Have you Shizuka entered it?
Shizuka
Nope...
Shizuka
People who became dancers have been summoned in,
Shizuka
but I don't think most people have been there.
Shizuka
Though it was designated as an emergency shelter, the emergency has never happened until today...
Sunao
I see...

Shizuka
We've arrived. Go into the sanctuary and we should be able to go downstairs.
Chiharu
...
Shizuka
Charu?
Chiharu
Ue... It sucks...
Sunao
Wait, are you okay!?
Chiharu
Sorry... But I think I will be able to get used to it a bit later...
Chiharu
I don't understand... What is this... ...It's malice, probably.
Sunao
Malice?
Chiharu
You feel disgusted when seeing a person who does bad things, right?
Chiharu
I guess, it feels just like that...
Shizuka
If there's no reaction from the devil, can that be someone to arrest...
Sunao
Not only the devil, but also Mikoshiba might be there...
Chiharu
... I am well now. I've calmed down
Sunao
Then, let's start descending...?
Chiharu
Okay...
Shizuka
The reaction can be felt right in front of the staircases.
Chiharu
We did it. This is the right place...

Katsu, katsum katsu
Pata, pata, pata
Don, don, don
Sunao
How far should we go down...
Shizuka
I don't know... It's the first time for me to go in too...
Sunao
There are a lot of things that Tokime Clan's head family don't know either...
Shizuka
Rather, nobody but Mikoshiba know them all...
Chiharu
Maybe because the old woman is manipulated.
Chiharu
It will be a formidable enemy.
Sunao
True, we must be prepared...
Shizuka
If we die, everything will be buried into darkness...
Shizuka
It's our duty to go back alive and expose everything under the sun.
Chiharu
... I can see the light.
Sunao
Huh...
Chiharu
... Formidable malice and
Shizuka
... formidable... power of the devil...

Chiharu
............ What is this place...
Shizuka
Such a magnificent place... built without anyone knowing...
Shizuka
Mikoshiba...
Mikoshiba
Little girls... Ye actually know it's here...
Shizuka
Charu has long felt the smell.
Mikoshiba
Troublesome, it's troublesome.
Mikoshiba
I should have killed thou earlier.
Shizuka
Don't ever talk about killing at ease.
Shizuka
Tell us, everything so far, no one less!
Mikoshiba
Even if thou never askest, I shall tell thou at thy last breath.
Mikoshiba
Well, why not come and play with the devil to decorate the conversation?
Sunao
The devil!
Sunao
Shizuka, Charu! Behind Mikoshiba!
衆倒令專 方界諸聞 若持後佛
Mikoshiba
Oh, the devil, bury them for me...
Mikoshiba
And then it will be their parents' turn.

All 17

Chiharu
The old woman is manipulating the devil...!?
Sunao
It looks so, and it turns out to be a trick of manipulating devils...
Shizuka
Our enemy is Tokime's priestess.
Shizuka
This isn't too weird considering that even diviners can exist.
Chiharu
But... It's possible that she is actually being manipulated.
Mikoshiba
Go, crush them!
出佛爲應!!
Shizuka
Ough...! This is really the devil overwhelming the whole village...
Shizuka
However!
衆大因非!?!?
Shizuka
I hit it...
得是喜德
Shizuka
Not a critical hit...
Mikoshiba
Ho ho!
Mikoshiba
Ye little girls are generations behind
Mikoshiba
the devils trained for so many years. Go and melt them altogether...
沮名量趣 當南紫一!
Sunao
What is that water...!
Shizuka
Sunao, step back!
者肩金等 其興方利 出一故藐
Chiharu
It's still spraying like crazy!
Chiharu
If we can ascend...!
Shizuka
Alongside the wall...
Sunao
Kick the walls and hit the devil outright...
Shizuka
If so, we will touch its water at the moment we fall.
Mikoshiba
The crying voices of the little girls are pleasing and really good.
歡光吼生
Shizuka
Ku!
喜汝諸勒
Shizuka
Here, I can stop it with my power...
Shizuka
Stop there!!
Sunao
The water flow stop...!
Shizuka
Sunao! Escape to its top now!
Sunao
But Shizuka, you can't move, can you!
Shizuka
Escape to its top when it stops!
Chiharu's voice
Shizuka-chan! Sunao-chan!
Shizuka
Na, the body is wrapped by ropes...
Sunao
A jitte at its end...
Chiharu
I'm pullingーーーー!!
Chiharu
Liaーーーーーー!!
Shizuka
Uwa!
Sunao
Kya!
Chiharu
Success!
Shizuka
Thanks, we are saved.
Sunao
There is such a way of making a difference.
Chiharu
Eh hey hey.
Mikoshiba
Petty tricks...
Chiharu
The stage where we fight is here!
Chiharu
If we occupy the top of the sanctuary, the pouring water won't be threatening!
Sunao
Right. Let's attack it here!
Shizuka
We just narrowly escaped from death.
Mikoshiba
It's useless to escape around.
Mikoshiba
Oh, devil,
Mikoshiba
collapsing the sanctuary isn't a matter. Be sure to exterminate them all.
顛不十敎 德威生舍 土空當佛!

All 18

Chiharu
Suffer yourself to be bound!
佛當舌斯!?
Shizuka
I bound it successfully...
Shizuka
Thanks, Charu!
Shizuka
Septuple Swords, finish the devil up!
願合者愍!?!?
Shizuka's voice
Finally, it's your turn, Sunao!
Sunao
If you want to melt us, we will in turn purge you!
Sunao
With this light!
得十佛下!?!?
Mikoshiba
Ough... Nu...
Mikoshiba
What, can't thou move! Art thou a devil like that and no more!
Mikoshiba
Let me see thy potential power!!
............!!
Chiharu
Getting so angry will blow up your head's blood vessels......
Mikoshiba
Dammit... Hiroe's fxxking daughter...
Shizuka
............
Shizuka
Old woman... Wake up.
Shizuka
You probably didn't manipulate the devil. Instead, you were actually manipulated.
Shizuka
If so, you are just killing meaninglessly...
Mikoshiba
Stop talking nonsense, Tokime's daughter.
Mikoshiba
Can I ever be manipulated?
Mikoshiba
All I have done is to follow the Shaman Deity's rules.
Mikoshiba
Everything is real,
Mikoshiba
my manipulating the devil, and the fact that ye will become devils,
Mikoshiba
and in addition,
Mikoshiba
that those who go out shall be abandoned; that those come from outside shall be killed...
Mikoshiba
For they are necessary for the village... Nothing more and nothing less.
Mikoshiba
For the sake of the shadow of the Land of the Rising Sun, all these are necessary.
Shizuka
If so, that thing is too...?
Shizuka
Is it also the village's convention that we became useless after having our wishes granted
Shizuka
and will be killed after being used up?
Mikoshiba
Precisely.
Mikoshiba
For that reason, ye should be buried
Mikoshiba
so as to make sure that the existence of Tokime is never exposed under broad daylight!
生是目謗 授弗達長 往法當輩!
Chiharu
Whatever you say to the old woman, it's useless now...
Shizuka
Yeah... But I still hold the hope
Shizuka
that she will return to normal after the devil is eliminated...
Shizuka
Though Mikoshiba is an annoying old woman, there were times when she was kind...
Sunao
Halt, Shizuka...
Sunao
Don't hold that kind of hope on Mikoshiba.
Shizuka
... It's really just a faint hope.
Mikoshiba
Oh, devil. This is thy last chance. Don't fail it this time...
忍行實相 稱光三汝 生受門須
Shizuka
Sunao, Charu, let's give it the coup de grâce.

All 19

佛色佛諸 應故至貧 以諸靡乃
彼地如國 意聞淨佛 如甚修覆
Chiharu
We—we defeated it... Victory...
Sunao
Though we consumed much energy...
Sunao
It dropped its ghost, so I think it's fine...
Shizuka
What about Mikoshiba...
Mikoshiba
Ough... Nu...u...
Mikoshiba
............
Shizuka
No way...
Chiharu
Is the old woman fine...?
Shizuka
It would be a big trouble if she dies here.
Sunao
Yes, leaving mountains of questions that we want to ask unanswered...
Mikoshiba
............
Shizuka
... Apparently she has just fainted.
Shizuka
Mom!
Chiharu
Mother!
Chiharu's mother
——!?
Chiharu's mother
Chiharu! Shizuka-chan!

Sunao-chan!

Shizuka's mother
The devil was defeated, right?
Shizuka's mother
I suppose so because the followers suddenly vanished.
Chiharu
It was pretty tough, but we three endeavored and defeated it!
Sunao
It was nice teamwork.
Shizuka
Yeah. What about mothers...?
Shizuka's mother
As you can see, exhausted...
Shizuka's mother
Only one sword survives. Another second, and everything would have been over...
Shizuka
Fortunately, we made it in time...
Shizuka's mother
So, did you see Mikoshiba-sama with the devil...?
Sunao
She was manipulating the devil...
Shizuka's mother
In other words, they are collusive...?
Chiharu
That is still unknown.
Chiharu
It looked so, but it's possible that she was actually manipulated.
Shizuka
Chiharu, we will talk about that later.
Shizuka
Just ask Mikoshiba after she wakes up.
Chiharu
Okay...
Chiharu's mother
Then, let's go back to my home for now...
Shizuka's mother
May I also go to the house Ms. Hiroe rented?
Chiharu's mother
Ms. Tokime's home was almost devastated after all...
Shizuka
What...

Mikoshiba
Mu... uu...
Shizuka
Finally she woke up...
Chiharu
Old woman, are you fine...?
Mikoshiba
............
Mikoshiba
... Ye are diviners'—
Chiharu's mother
Though there is no injury in particular, do you feel unwell?
Shizuka's mother
Ms. Hiroe, you don't have to take care of her too much.
Mikoshiba
Tokime's and Hiroe's...
Mikoshiba
Was that like, I got injured and then fell asleep?
Chiharu
... Don't you remember anything?
Mikoshiba
Sorry... My recent memories are blur...
Chiharu
Huh... Can it be...?
Shizuka
It's possible for one who got a devil's cursing seals to have things forgotten...
Mikoshiba
Thou mean'st, I, by the devil...?
Sunao
... But, rather, it looked like you were manipulating the devil...
Mikoshiba
I can't remember that... Sorry...
Mikoshiba
But it's true that ye saved me, right?
Mikoshiba
I have to express my gratitude to ye three diviners. Thank ye.
Shizuka
Anyway... We have things to ask from you...
Mikoshiba
... What
Shizuka
Whether your memory is blurred or not, I just want you to let us know.
Shizuka
About us diviners...

All 20

Mikoshiba
... They are all that I have said, correct...?
Shizuka
Yeah, you said so.
Shizuka
At the coming-of-age ceremony, you said a diviner eventually becomes a devil.
Shizuka
You also said that as the shadow of the Land of the Rising Sun, a diviner can never go out...
Mikoshiba
They are all things I don't know...
Mikoshiba
But I don't think thou art a dishonest girl...
Mikoshiba
So please allow me to make an apology.
Shizuka
Is that so...
Chiharu
The old woman is lying...
Mikoshiba
That's troublesome...
Mikoshiba
Considering what I have done, it's natural for thou to say so...
Chiharu
It smells wrong... Still...
Sunao
............
Sunao
It's no longer possible. I can't tolerate anymore...
Mikoshiba
Toki's daughter...
Sunao
I thought you might admit all of them, but now it seems impossible...
Sunao
To protect Shizuka and Charu from being hurt by the truths, I had held back from telling about them...
Sunao
I thought if Mikoshiba would be punished, may as well bring them to the grave.
Sunao
But, but no longer!
Mikoshiba
What—what arr thou talking about...
Shizuka
What are those things that you held back from telling us...
Sunao
...!
Sunao
I, I went to Mikoshiba's home, right?
Sunao
At that point, of course, I didn't find Mikoshiba there.
Mikoshiba
If so, where was I...
Sunao
At the Great Sanctuary...
Mikoshiba
You fool, you mean I was there...!? At the holy place, with the devil!?
Sunao
Don't avoid the topic!
Sunao
You don't remember threatening to kill my parents, do you?
Mikoshiba
Sorry...
Chiharu's mother
Then, you shouldn't remember asking me to come and threatening me either...
Mikoshiba
That's... true...
Sunao
Since when...? Since when did your memories become blurred?
Mikoshiba
............
Mikoshiba
I see... Since Sunao's case, I guess.
Mikoshiba
One year... Or maybe... as long as two years if not less...
Sunao
If so, at least you should remember one case as normal...
Mikoshiba
Which... one...?
Chiharu
Sunao-chan... What are you talking about...?

All 21

Sunao
I went to Mikoshiba's home, and found something...
Mikoshiba
............
Sunao
A computer, which shouldn't be here in this village...
Mikoshiba
............
Sunao
I entered the same number to the number of the safe box and logged in it.
Sunao
Then, I found some audio files...
Mikoshiba
... So what?
Sunao
The files were at least 2 years old...
Mikoshiba
... Thou listenedst to them?
Sunao
Yes... Clearly with my ears...
Mikoshiba
............
Mikoshiba
So... So... Thou listenedst to them...
Sunao
What are they... Tell me...!!
Mikoshiba
Thou'd better not to know.
Mikoshiba
Ignorance is bliss.
Sunao
Are you trying to bluff it out!
Mikoshiba
... Yeah, I shouldn't have allowed people from outside in...
Mikoshiba
Let me tell ye, there is no written documentation,
Mikoshiba
so no villager would be able to read about them.
Sunao
Mikoshiba...!
Creak...
Sunao
Eh...
Mikoshiba
Ough...
Sunao
Mikoshiba...!?
Chiharu
Old woman!
Shizuka
Wait, what's up...!?
Chiharu
Mom!
Chiharu's mother
Leave this house!
Chiharu
The old woman, is dead, really...?
Shizuka's mother
Yeah...
Shizuka's mother
Poison was put between her back teeth.
Shizuka's mother
Perhaps she attempted to escape to Hades.
Chiharu
Even if she didn't...
Chiharu's mother
Charu...
Sunao
That means she admitted them... Her wrongdoings...
Chiharu
But... but... He said any bad guy can be reformed...
Chiharu
Mr. Todoriki said so...
Shizuka
It's quite possible that people who can't exist...
Chiharu
............
Sunao
I can't forgive that...
Sunao
Doing malicious things at her will, and even burying them in the darkness when dying...!
Sunao
Sorry... I shouldn't have said like that...
Sunao
I should have... ask more from Mikoshiba before saying that...!
Shizuka's mother
Sunao-chan, calm down...
Shizuka
Probably, I would have interrogated even if Sunao wouldn't...
Shizuka
Because the dead bodies I saw underwater weren't accumulated within just a couple of years.
Shizuka
She had always... always...
Shizuka
been simply killing diviners, regardless of devils...
Shizuka
...Son Sunao, what did your heard about...?
Sunao
... I don't even want to talk about that.
Shizuka
Something to do with me and Chiharu, right...
Shizuka
Just let me know...
Sunao
Don't. You will regret it!
Shizuka
But it's about us, right?
Shizuka
It's unfair if you carry it to the grave.
Chiharu
Yeah, Sunao-chan
Chiharu
We want to know about our things, so let us bear it too.
Sunao
............
Sunao
What I heard... what I heard was
Sunao
...!
Sunao
The pricing of lives...

All 22

Chiharu
The pricing of lives...?
Shizuka
Which means, the pricing of my and Chiharu's lives...?
Sunao
... Exactly.
Sunao
A conversation with an unknown man was recorded...
Sunao
Though it was hard to understand at the beginning,
Sunao
the topic gradually shifted to about the wish made when becoming a diviner...
Chiharu
Who is on the other side...?
Sunao
I heard only his voice in the file at that moment. As for his name...
Sunao
Anyway, he must be a celebrity...
Sunao
She talked about the pricing of the wish... and the trend of the time... with that person...
Shizuka
In short, our wishes... Our lives were sold out...
Shizuka
Hah...
Shizuka
Sorry for telling you straightforward... You are more tolerant than I expected...
Chiharu
............
Sunao
... Uh...
Chiharu
We didn't wish for the Land of the Rising Sun...?
Sunao
... That fact doesn't change.
Chiharu
But, the old woman received money and asked us to make the wishes...
Chiharu
I...
Chiharu
I didn't sacrifice my life to the god...
Chiharu
My life was just sold to an unknown man...
Chiharu
... My wish... What did I wish for...
Shizuka
Indeed, it was probably sold. Even so... Even so, Charu...
Shizuka
Your wish was indeed realized, and foiled the evil nesting within justice...
Chiharu
Shizuka-chan...
Shizuka
So, it was meaningful... It was... Charu...!
Chiharu
Yeah...
Chiharu
By the way, Sunao-chan... How much was I...?
Chiharu's mother
Wait, Charu... You don't have to ask about that...
Sunao
Yeah, it's not about price.
Chiharu
This liar...
Sunao
We are friends, and that's priceless.
Sunao
Charu and Shizuka have always been the greatest people.
Sunao
How much are they... I don't know...
Chiharu
Sunao-chaan...
Shizuka
Thank you...
Shizuka
Sorry for making you bear that... You are the greatest person too...
Sunao
Even if I attempted to kill you...?
Shizuka
Of course.

Shizuka
............
Shizuka
It turned out that Mikoshiba knew everything and manipulated the devil too...
Shizuka
And this village has long been selling lives since ancient times...
Shizuka's mother
Shizuka, not exactly...
Shizuka's mother
This is Tokime's village. It knows nothing about how things were before Mikoshiba came...
Shizuka's mother
Even if you want to ask, the dead men tell no tales...
Chiharu
............
Chiharu
Jeez...

Chiharu
If that's the case... If that's the case, just do it till the very end...!
Chiharu's mother
Charu, what are you doing! Stop!
Shizuka's mother
As my mom said, however bad she was, a dead person is dead!
Chiharu
Not that...
Chiharu
It still smells wrong, didn't I say that just now!
Chiharu
The old woman still smells like a bad person even when she is dead!
Chiharu's mother
So what can you do?
Chiharu
The so-called truth may be lying in the very unexpected vicinity.
Chiharu
If it could lie in the computer Sunao-chan found
Chiharu
the real important things may be carried with her, right?
Chiharu's mother
I see... Let me search...
Mikoshiba
............
Chiharu's mother
... I'm sorry.
Chiharu's mother
............
Chiharu
Is there... nothing...?
Chiharu's mother
Something inside the pocket...
Chiharu
Here it is...
Chiharu's mother
... This is
Shizuka
a book...? What... what is the weird script...
Sunao
I don't know...
Shizuka's mother
Nothing can be done if it is unreadable...
Chiharu
This is...

Chiharu's mother
A brain is essential to becoming Mr. Todoriki.
Chiharu's mother
You promised that you will study and learn the classics now.
Chiharu
H'm. Why the classics?
Chiharu's mother
You have to, it is the Hiroe family's tradition.
Chiharu
I'll change this from my generation...

Chiharu
Mom!!
Chiharu's mother
We... can read it...!
Shizuka
You're kidding...
Chiharu
Our family has the rule of remembering this script...
Chiharu's mother
But we never expected it to appear in such case...
Shizuka
It can be... deciphered?
Chiharu
Quite possibly...!
Shizuka's mother
Then I'll leave the deciphering to you. We are going to summon other people.
Shizuka's mother
Other villagers are still in shelters.
Shizuka's mother
Anyhow, Mikoshiba should be carried home too...
Sunao
Okay...
Shizuka
Then, Charu... Please...
Chiharu
Okay. I'll try. Mom, try reading this.
Chiharu's mother
Yeah. We probably have to stay overnight.

Ah, earphones...
Sunao

Sunao
This is...
- Mikoshiba -
"It's me."
'About the person to realize the wonder realized
is she prepared yet?'
- Mikoshiba -
"Please wait a bit longer,
I can guarantee that will be done within several days."
'Things will be screwed up if you don't hurry up.
If it goes well, it will be
an incident that could change the political situation.'
- Mikoshiba -
"I know thy circumstances.
Dost thou know how many times I have traded with people like thee?
It's not the first time for thee to ask us for help"
'I got your contact information from my teacher,
but whether I will trust you
depends on how this case turns out.'
- Mikoshiba -
"Thy political rival hath come to contact me too,
but the price thou suggest is much more favourable"
'Please don't be late
I already paid for the wish'
- Mikoshiba -
"Let me tell thee, it will be just several days' wait"
- Mikoshiba -
"When that moment cometh
the wish thou paid for will be granted
and thou shalt be thankful to thy teacher too"
'Thanks. I'm counting on you'
- Mikoshiba -
"Besides, thou shouldst know
that our conversations are all recorded as evidence
and will become each other's Achilles' heels"
- Mikoshiba -
"Thou shalt never forget that
for thy political career may end because of it."
'Of course I won't'

Sunao branch ends. The story continues on the main route (See All 15)

All 23

Shizuka
Thanks for your hard work, Charu.
Sunao
Thanks.
Chiharu
It's my first time to stay overnight...
Sunao
The same to us.
Chiharu
Was it much harder for you to deal with?
Sunao
It's because Mikoshiba died...
Shizuka
And on top of that, the dancers died too, creating a fuss...
Chiharu
That's the reason why people were gathering...
Shizuka
Perhaps only people linked to diviners knew the fact...
Shizuka
The dancers were said to be adopted as Mikoshiba's successors.
Sunao
Then, what about Charu's side?
Chiharu
Here is it: though we didn't dig into every detail, it's comprehensible overall.
Chiharu's mother
Though almost all read by your mother.
Chiharu
Ur... I will learn it hard...
Sunao
But why should we come here?
Chiharu
This shrine is the root of Tokime, a good place to start things,
Chiharu
except it isn't — The Wavering Deity is nearby.
Shizuka
Why the Wavering Deity?
Chiharu
Just listen to it and you will understand.
Shizuka's mother
So can we listen to it now?
Shizuka's mother
Don't just give us cliffhangers and make us impatient.
Chiharu's mother
Okay, the story is divided into two chapters.
Chiharu
One is Mikoshiba's story, another Tokime's.

- Chiharu -
Let me begin with Mikoshiba's story
She used to be a warrior dispatched to protect Tokime
who managed to come into power
when there happened to be no diviners in the village
- Chiharu -
Since then Mikoshiba altered many rules
creating rituals like
Nation's Guard's Holy Music, the ceremony of diviners, and the coming-of-age ceremony
- Chiharu -
By having the village's girls have their wishes granted
she obtained the ability to manipulate devils
- Chiharu -
Then
she hid the village in a labyrinth
- Chiharu -
Which is to say, Mikoshiba
hid the village in which diviners are created for money in a labyrinth
killing diviners in order to monopolize it
so that no information would be leaked out

Shizuka
What Mikoshiba had done on me...
Chiharu
seems to have been long followed...
Shizuka
Then, we might one day become devils...
Chiharu
Seems to be true too...
Shizuka
How can that be...
Shizuka
... What followings that!
Chiharu
Okay, go on.

- Chiharu -
The following writes about
the Wavering Deity
- Chiharu -
It is a devil formed by the dumped diviners
who could neither go out
nor return to the village
hence becoming a drifting existence
- Chiharu -
The Wavering Deity
would return to the village
as soon as Mikoshiba and the labyrinth of the devil are eliminated
- Chiharu -
Ultimately, it will devour the village
and erase all evidence of the diviners — That's all it writes

Chiharu's mother
It feels like an obsession that she would never surrender Tokime to anyone else...
Shizuka
Oh, wait...
Shizuka
Since there is already no labyrinth covering the village...!
Chiharu
Yeah, the Wavering Deity must be returning...
Chiharu
At that time, we must defeat it.
Sunao
We'll attacking our ancestors head-on...
Chiharu
Not exactly...
Chiharu
We are going to liberate the diviners who have always suffered...
Chiharu
By us the rules Mikoshiba had set up will be smashed...!
Shizuka
But, since our ancestors have grown for so many years,
Shizuka
are we three capable of defeating them...?
Shizuka
Though we know a battle is inevitable.
Shizuka
Wow!
Chiharu
This reaction... It's the Wavering Deity...
Shizuka
Now I understand the reason to get all the trouble to take up positions here.
Shizuka
We will attack it head-on here, right?
Shizuka's mother
I know it's a bad timing, but can you all return to my home...?
Shizuka
Mom!?
Shizuka's mother
I'll tell you about the sword I talked about last night while walking.
Shizuka's mother
Whew, it still raise my pulse despite my life experience.

All 24

Shizuka
So what are you gonna inform me?
Shizuka's mother
Firstly, Hiroe family is the descendant of Mikoshiba, make no mistake.
Chiharu
Huh... By Mikoshiba, you mean the old woman?
Shizuka's mother
Exactly.
Chiharu
But why!?
Shizuka's mother
Only Mikoshiba's people can read that kind of script.
Chiharu
Though I heard from my mom that we came out from Tokime's Village
Chiharu's mother
I never expected that to be Mikoshiba...
Chiharu
It's complicated...
Shizuka's mother
Don't say so,
Shizuka's mother
because we Tokime's family have been waiting for you
Chiharu
You know we didn't come for that, right?
Shizuka's mother
Even I wasn't aware of that until last night.
Shizuka's mother
But finally, I understood the meaning of the story that has been passed down by Tokime's...
Shizuka's mother
When the ones who can read Mikoshiba's script appear, Mikoshiba will collapse.
Shizuka's mother
Before the collapse, diviners should sharpen a sword.
Shizuka's mother
There is a legend goes like this in Tokime's family.
Shizuka
............

Shizuka
This time we decided to decipher the book after witnessing the situation of the village.
Shizuka
Actually, could we read the book in the first place, we would be able to see the big picture of the plan...
Shizuka
And to annihilate the plan, we will battle against the Wavering Deity...
Sunao
Maybe Shizuka's and Charu's families used to cooperate with each other?
Sunao
And the plan was leaked, so one was banished and lived outside as Hiroe family...
Shizuka
My family has been sharpening the knife...
Chiharu
My family has been passing down Mikoshiba's script...
Shizuka's mother
Shizuka! Accept this!
Shizuka's mother
This is the treasured sword to which Tokime's diviners' power has infused.
Shizuka's mother
Use the power incorporated during the 100 years, 200 years, or even 300 years,
Shizuka's mother
and liberate the Wavering Deity.
Shizuka
I'll use it properly.

Sunao
This will be the final battle
Chiharu
Those who infused their emotions into the sword must be wandering as the Wavering Deity.
Shizuka
Go and welcome them back, as well as the bright feeling they once had.
Chiharu
At the end of the centuries-long time!

All 25

Chiharu
The Wavering Deity is pretty close...
Sunao
No, it's still far away...
Chiharu
Will it become excited when seeing the village?
Shizuka
After hundreds of years of wandering, it will finally see its hometown...
Shizuka
Though they are no longer humans they used to be, but just a devil.
Shizuka
Still, seeing the place where it beloned
Shizuka
should make it happy, right?
- Chiharu -
-Chiharu-
However, even if it wants to return happily
it is just a venomous devil now
- Sunao -
-Sunao-
We can't allow Tokime's village surrendered to it
as its living space
Shizuka
That's why we should liberate it with our hands, right!
Chiharu
Yeah, exactly!
Chiharu
Their real destination is the Heaven.
→→→→!!!
Chiharu
O—kay!
Chiharu
The first shot — nah, the first jitte is mine!
→↑↓↑←!?!?
→→→⇒!!
Shizuka
Let us go your boss' place!
←↓←↑!?!?
→⇒→⇒!!!
Sunao
Go inward at one fling!
↓↓↓→...!?!?
Chiharu
Huh... Huh... Hey, Shizuka-chan!
Shizuka
What's up, Charu?
Chiharu
What's next after liberating the Wavering Deity!
Sunao
Too early to ask.
Shizuka
Though we don't know, I guess we will have to rebuild the village first,
Shizuka
then explain things that have happened so far.
Shizuka
Everyone will definitely be shocked just like what happened yesterday.
Chiharu
Not that—!
Shizuka
What!?
Chiharu
I mean what should we do as diviners!
Shizuka
Well, what should we do...?
Shizuka
We won't know until we defeat it.
Shizuka
You see, finish up what's right in front of you first!
Shizuka
We are entering the deepest part.
Chiharu
Okay.
壷*rカ蟶縺ォ螳ー縺Ы※!!
Sunao
--!?
Chiharu
The devil's power feels overwhelming...
Shizuka
It's existence per se... seems oppressive...
Sunao
...
Chiharu
Sunao-chan!
Sunao
Sorry, the strong power suddenly feels...
Chiharu
Really, my head... feels dizzy now...
Shizuka
Even the followers are bluffing...?It's hard to even stand up, why...
繧ゅ@ク縺ェ縺??ェ峨?∫ァ√
Shizuka
AAaaah!!

All 26

We kill people after becoming a devil
We didn't become the existence that saved the Land of the Rising Sun
We want to tell others, but we can no longer do anything
Shizuka
Hah...
Shizuka
What, is that voice...!
- ??? -
Though 'twas a diviner's body, as a devil, becometh tantamount to death
Even if I save one person tomorrow
may kill a hundred the day after
Shizuka
(The devil...?)
貞ョ医溽ゥ「繧後◆肴オ!!
Shizuka
Don't look at me...
- ??? -
Tainted, stained, we became unclean
Shizuka
Stop... Don't say that...!
- ??? -
'Tis a body for price evaluation
Shizuka
(This is...)
- ??? -
One silver coin, two silver coins, forty grammes, eighty grammes, price label'd, display'd in shops
Shizuka
(From within my body...!)
- Shizuka -
My life isn't mine
I was kept, sold, then became a devil, staining this hateful mortal world
Shizuka
Ye... Yeah... I don't know about what's next.
Shizuka
Because we are existences that will become devils...
Shizuka
We didn't fight for the Land of the Rising Sun, so we are designed to be killed.
Shizuka
Even pricing lives...
Shizuka
Even what Mikoshiba had done might be right.
Shizuka
And that's why we have been living within the confine of these conventions...
Shizuka
I really don't want to consider about what's next after defeating it.
Shizuka
Because, isn't it too horrible!
蝨*溷慍‡繧[]貞ョ医l!!
Shizuka
............
Sunao
Ough...!
Sunao
Pricing lives is wrong...!
Sunao
As you Shizuka said to me, I am the best person,
Sunao
there is no difference between lives!
Sunao
Wouldn't Shizuka be admirable if she maintains her honor, never surrendering it, and always does her best?
Sunao
Even if we become devils someday,
Sunao
won't it be good if we fight for the Land of the Rising Sun till the very end!
Sunao
Meanwhile, we may be able to find out...
Sunao
a new path for us, right!
Sunao
Let's find it out together, Shizuka!
Sunao
To compensate your forgiveness for me,
Sunao
I will heal your heart, always...!
Shizuka
Sunao...
薙Зァ縲∫嚀俶純Лオ縺ヲ!?
Sunao&Shizuka
Ouuuugh! Aaah!
Chiharu
Cough cough...
Chiharu
I am too weak to be the cushion...
Shizuka
Chiharu...
Sunao
Sorry...
Chiharu
Hey, listen to me...
Chiharu
I didn't finish Tokime's story in the book, did I?
Shizuka
--!?

- Chiharu -
Before Mikoshiba came...
Tokime's people think about national affairs on their own
They made their wishes on their own mind too
- Chiharu -
Though when the war became fierce and nobody was trustwrothy
and also when there were no diviners left
they became under Mikoshiba's control
- Chiharu -
Those who became coming-of-age
seemed to really have departed and gone out
- Chiharu -
After that, they knew their relationship with devils
However, here's how Tokime's people thought
- Chiharu -
"Honor can be maintained as long as souls were sacrificed to the Land of the Rising Sun"
- Chiharu -
"Even if I become a devil, what I have achieved won't be wasted"

Shizuka
Which means...

Shizuka
If I literally sacrificed my soul to the Land of the Rising Sun...
Shizuka
my honor can be maintained...!
Shizuka
Even if I become a devil, what I have achieved won't be wasted.
Shizuka
Proud of that, I can fight till I eventually fall...!

Shizuka
That's what I said to Mikoshiba...
Chiharu
You did say so...
Chiharu
So, here's what I think:
Chiharu
there is no place for Mikoshiba inside Shizuka-chan's soul, which has always been Tokeme's.
Chiharu
Thus, as Sunao-chan said, let's find it out together!
Sunao
Shizuka!
Shizuka
Sorry...
Shizuka
I was the one who was beaten by the devil...
Shizuka
But I have woken up...!
蟆剰ウ「励>滉Ч偵Щ九↑!
Shizuka
Let us three keep some distance!
Chiharu
Okay!

Shizuka
Fortunately, we are a trio.
Shizuka
I want us three to win together and find our new future!
Shizuka
So!
菫wp*斬翫Лq!!
Shizuka
Let's watch over where our ancestors will be liberated!
Shizuka
Huh...
Shizuka
Oh, Tokime's sword...
Shizuka
Open a future for us...!!

All 27

- Chiharu -
Time elapsed hurriedly
after the Wavering Deity was liberated
- Chiharu -
That's because we had to tell everyone
the history of Tokime and Mikoshiba
- Chiharu -
As well as to search Mikoshiba's home
and investigate into her background so far
Chiharu
Is your family fine, Sunao-chan?
Sunao
Yeah, perfectly.
Sunao
Papa and mama also apologized more than before.
Shizuka
I'm glad that everything returned to normal.
Shizuka
Now we have broken free from Mikoshiba's curse.
Sunao
Yes.
Chiharu
And we will be together from now on too, right?
Sunao
Of course. Why not?
Shizuka's mother
Ah—, I'm tired; I'm tired...
Chiharu's mother
It is a feeling of done and dusted though.
Shizuka's mother
Actually, everyone is so unfamiliar with modern society.
Shizuka's mother
Without you, Ms. Hiroe, we couldn't have made clear anything.
Chiharu
Welcome back, mom.
Shizuka
You must be tired.
Shizuka's mother
On the case of Mikoshiba, everything finally fell into place.
Chiharu
--!?
Chiharu
How was that!?
Shizuka's mother
Let Ms. Hiroe tell that.
Chiharu's mother
Eh, ah, okay...

- Chiharu's mother -
The root of this incident was indeed the village's convention
but it seems that what triggered it
was the Mikoshiba's debt
- Chiharu's mother -
After a huge investment failed
she seemed in trouble of cash flow
Therefore, she took advantages from diviners hurrily

Chiharu's mother
Regardless of reasons, she used others' kids...
Chiharu's mother
I can't forgive that, not even if I am dead...
Chiharu
Mom...
Chiharu's mother
I don't want to say like that before my daughter, but it's such a feeling of holding a grudge until the doomsday.
Chiharu's mother
Definitely...
Shizuka's mother
That being said, Ms. Hiroe, the doomsday hasn't come yet, right?
Chiharu's mother
... Don't carp at me pointlessly.
Sunao
Then, the reason she reached out to me and Chiharu was...
Chiharu's mother
Sunao-chan's becoming a diviner should be out of Mikoshiba's expectation.
Chiharu's mother
So she turned to us, triggering an unexpected chain of incidents.
Sunao
If so, had I never become a diviner, Charu wouldn't have to bear all of these.
Chiharu
There is no such thing!
Chiharu
We already decided to be together. Don't dither over such thing!
Sunao
O—okay, I know that.
Shizuka
By the way, what about other villagers? It seems that they never calm down...
Shizuka's mother
Eventually, the village has been blessed by diviners.
Shizuka's mother
In the past, people could grow their own crops and live good lives.
Shizuka's mother
In other words, adults become worried when losing their financial support.
Shizuka's mother
Of course, I am no exception.
Shizuka
Please don't say that indifferently...
Shizuka's mother
What Mikoshiba worried about included the funding of the village too.
Shizuka's mother
We have to take it into consideration.
Shizuka
... The same way we also worry everything about the future of diviners...
Shizuka
People in the village have their things to worry about in the future too.
Shizuka's mother
That's true.
Shizuka
Didn't you find anything else?
Shizuka's mother
Hmm, if you mean something interesting, I found something like Tokime's family tree.
Shizuka's mother
Actually, Tokime's bloodline seems to have scattered all around.
Shizuka's mother
It looks like our blood relatives live in other mountains and seaside areas too.
Shizuka
Hueh—
Chiharu's mother
On top of that, what will you do? That's what I concerned about.
Chiharu
We have a clear answer in our minds.
Chiharu
We already knew what we would fight for in our hearts and what we would aim at!
Shizuka's mother
Oh, you became pretty reliable.
Shizuka's mother
Then, what's your first step?
Chiharu
Firstly, we will have a conversation with Cubey-sama!
Shizuka's mother
With Cubey-sama?
Sunao
Yes, about any method for us to avoid becoming devils,
Sunao
we want to know if he knows anything about that.
Shizuka
Then, we will plan our future living according to the answer.
Chiharu's mother
Anyhow, we three will be together from now on.
Chiharu
Yeah!
Chiharu
Because we must change us diviners' fate!


All 28

Sunao
Can we summon it out without dancers?
Shizuka
It is the god, but we are not the priestess. I'm afraid we can't.
Chiharu
We won't know unless we try!
Shizuka
Yeah.
Chiharu
Then, let's try shouting loudly!
Shizuka
Okay.
Chiharu
One, two,
- Three people -
"Kyu———be————sama————"
Shizuka
............
Sunao
............
Chiharu
............
Shizuka
It doesn't work?
Kyubey
Hey, it's you who called me out, right?
Chiharu
He came!
Shizuka
Then what's the meaning of the dance...?
Sunao
Probably a performance to make it felt solemn...
Kyubey
Did you summoned me for no reason?
Shizuka
Ah, no! We have things to ask you!
Kyubey
I'll answer anything I can.
Kyubey
Then, Shizuka, what do you want to ask from me?
Shizuka
Well, we know that we will become devils...
Shizuka
Do you know any method to avoid that?
Shizuka
The means that we can keep living as diviners.
Shizuka
Because we fight for the Land of the Rising Sun and don't want others to suffer!
Kyubey
I'm sorry, but I cannot satisfy your expectation.
Chiharu
You don't know any...?
Kyubey
True.
Kyubey
At least I don't know any method to avoid it.
Kyubey
There haven't been many successful cases so far.
Chiharu
--!?
Chiharu
Did you just say "many"!?
Chiharu
Then it means it's just Cubey-sama doesn't know,
Chiharu
but the method exists, right!?
Sunao
Yet, Cubey-sama doesn't know, right...?
Kyubey
True. It's hard for me to tell you by myself.
Kyubey
But you can see how it works and obtain it.
Sunao
Obtain...?
Kyubey
Do you know a place called Kamihama City or not?
Chiharu
I don't...
Shizuka
Neither I...
Sunao
Ah, I once heard about it!
Kyubey
There is an automatic purification system in Kamihama City.
Kyubey
Thus, if you manage to obtain it,
Kyubey
I think you will be able to avoid becoming devils.
Kyubey
Of course, I cannot say I am sure about that.
Shizuka
That trivial thing doesn't matter...! I suddenly feel the overwhelming hope...!
Shizuka
Let's go! To Kamihama City!
Sunao
Yeah, I'll guide you using a map!
Chiharu
I will explain everything about modern society to Shizuka-chan!
Shizuka
That—that's not quite necessary.
Chiharu
Can you use an IC card...?
Shizuka
... Haven't even heard the name.
Chiharu
It's decided!
Kyubey
If you feel like to go to Kamihama, I have several things to explain.
Chiharu
Explain...?
Kyubey
First, there are dozens of girls like you in Kamihama City.
Kyubey
You'd better keep that in mind.
Kyubey
Second, they have some different terminology.
Chiharu
Huh...?
Kyubey
For example, except around Tokime's territory, girls like you
Kyubey
aren't known as diviners.
Shizuka
Then, how they call us?
Kyubey
You are called magical girls.

Epilogue

Sunao
Diviner.
Shizuka
Magical girl!
Sunao
Devil.
Shizuka
Witch!
Sunao
Devil's ghost.
Chiharu
Well! Grief seed!
Sunao
Jewel.
Shizuka
Soul gem!
Sunao
I lose the game!
Chiharu
While I remembered it well.
Shizuka
I am too familiar with the old names.
Shizuka
It's pretty hard to switch away...
Sunao
That's because of your long experience.
Shizuka
Speaking of which, Charu hasn't since felt the village's awful smell?
Chiharu
No. It's completely away. Now I breathe more freely.
Sunao
Eh, was that a real smell?
Chiharu
Actually not. It was like something from intuition?
Shizuka
It doesn't seem to have anything to do with witches, but is really like a power specialized for any case.
Chiharu
Yeah, I might have felt malice at that time.
Sunao
It somehow sounds like a power that may be useful in the future too.
Chiharu
I'll do my best for that!
Shizuka
That's reassuring.
Chiharu
But it still feels incredible.
Chiharu
It hasn't been long since I met with Shizuka-chan and Sunao-chan,
Chiharu
but we three are actually departing together.
Sunao
Looking back, I couldn't imagine it at all.
Chiharu
It's so exciting!
Shizuka
It's been just a couple of days since Charu became a magical girl.
Shizuka
But for me, it was quite a radical change?
Sunao
Shizuka is more like confused.
Shizuka
Nah, actually not quite.
Sunao
Really?
Shizuka
I don't really understand it, but I think something finally started,
Shizuka
and that's my life.

-Chiharu-
We will obtain it someday
The means for not becoming witches!
-Sunao-
And we will keep fighting
for the Land of the Rising Sun till death
-Shizuka-
That's us
Tokime Clan's long-maintained honor
-Chiharu-
To do so, first, we have to?
-Shizuka-
I already got the answer
-Chiharu-
Great, Shizuka-chan!
-Sunao-
Then, what's the answer?
-Shizuka-
We should read the family tree remained in Mikoshiba's home
and get into contact with people from Tokime clan and its branches
-Shizuka-
We will recruit people who are willing to join us
and found a group of Tokime clan
-Chiharu-
Oooooh!
-Shizuka-
When prepared
let's go to the other side of this landscape!
-Sunao-
Exactly
over the mountains to the place beyond them
-Three people-
To Kamihama City!
