Terumi: Geez, I was trying to get all serious since it was Hakumen...But this was just too weak! Was your bad habit actin' up again, huh, kind ol' Miss Trinity? The Hakumen I know isn't nearly this weak~
Terumi: But yeah, I guess the things you can do are pretty much just at this level, huh. How about knowing your place and staying out of this? Or should I just send you back to the Boundary? ...Hyahayhayaha!
Trinity: .. It's just as Terumi says. In the end.. these are the only things I can do. .. I can't fight on my own.. I always have to have someone to help me.. The only thing someone like I can do.. is to make it easier to have someone stab their knife through your throat.
Terumi: -- Bitch, what are you trying to say?
Trinity: Back then.. I should've done this..For the sake of my dearest, best friend..
Terumi: Tch! What is this, you didn't even say it clearly?! Coming and leaving on her own...Huh? This is.. huh? This isn't within my mind...This is, the real Ikaruga? Shit, what the hell is going on..Why am I here in Ikaruga?!
Hazama/Kazuma: Hello there, can you hear me? Seems like your and my positions have been changed. You -- who were the inner self -- and me -- who was the outer self -- have turned to you as the outer, and me as the inner.
Terumi: Oy, Oy! You've got to be shitting me! If that's the case-- If that's the case.. than that cat's sword can reach me!
Hazama/Kazuma: Yeah, it's kinda a bad thing~ Well then, this is troublesome..
Terumi: That fucking Four-Eyes and shitty vampire --!!
Ragna: Sh*t! I must take care of Izayoi or it will be problems. "Anti Observer Armament"... if that is used on Noel and "something" would happen to her it is all over.
Amane: Hey, you!
Ragna: But what should I do. Tsubaki is for sure chasing after Noel... Should I find Noel first and wait for Tsubaki? Should I be that easygoing...
Amane: Hey, wait!!
Ragna: Okay! First I find Tsubaki and do something about Izayoi. But still, that bitch Kokonoe...
Amane: Hey! There should be a limit to ignore somebody.
Ragna: Whoaa! Don't startle me! What is this suddenly!? Anyway, You're close! Close! Get away!!
Amane: I'm sorry. I didn't mean to startle you.
Ragna: Sure you were! You're full of shit!
Amane: But you were ignoring me when I tried to talk with you, right?
Ragna: ... anyway, who are you?
Amane: Walking so briskly, do you have a something urgent to do?
Ragna: Ignoring what I said... Such a thing have nothing to do with you.
Amane: Oh, how cold of you...
Ragna: Anyway, seriously what do you want, I'm in a hurry.
Amane: Nothing really.
Ragna: Well then.
Amane: Don't get angry. You know? When you see someone as interesting as you one must try to talk with them.
Amane: Hm hm. Ah! So that's how it is!
Ragna: What, stopping looking on ones face, its disgusting.
Amane: Well well, I'm sorry for being disrespectful... but...
Amane: The more closely I look at you the more interesting you get...
Ragna: Are you picking a fight with me!?
Amane: Don't misunderstand me! It isn't "only your face" that is interesting.
Ragna: You are 100% picking a fight with me! Still, there is something familiar with this way of speaking in circle... Well it doesn't matter.
Amane: Well well, when looking closely on the face also...
Ragna: What! What are you talking about! Anyway, don't come any closer, its disgusting.
Amane: Well, wasn't I rude, sorry! But you know, when look at you like this you sure got outstanding talent!
For sure you are appropriate actor to bath in the spotlight. It's dangerous, but... you possess what is needed to be in the center of the stage. You are a human that the world is in need of...
Ragna: I don't understand a single word of what you are talking about!
Amane: Fufu. That's right, you are qualified enough to be an "actor" is all I'm saying.
Amane: That's right, "Actor". So could you show me your dance?
Ragna: Don't fuck around!!!
Amane: Whoa, that was close! Hmm, that's some nice use of the hips.
Ragna: Bastard! Don't say things that can be misunderstood!!
Event: Ragna vs Amane
Ragna: Haa,haa. you are in continuous motion... I cant really aim...
Amane: Well, this is truly interesting. What do you say? Do you want to come to my side?
Ragna: I refuse!!! Even if I would die!
Amane: Even tough you possess things that shine... Well, for now think about it, okay.
Ragna: Bastard! Listen to what people are saying!
Amane: Well then, later!
Ragna: Don't meet me again! And if we meet each other don't try to talk with me!
Anane: So that was "Ragna the Bloodedge". He surely is an interesting "Actor". Fufufu. Ah, more importantly Carl, where is Carl...
Hazama: So how is it going there? "Imperator".
Imperator: No problem. If there is anything it is that your voice is hurting my ears.
Hazama: Oh, how stern of you as always. Even I would feel hurt by those words..
Imperator: My "vessel" was once "broken" by you, It can be helped if there is some rejection toward you.
Hazama: With only that? I only showed her -- "her own Memories". With the exact details. I even "reproduced" all the "senses".
Imperator: You are no good with women... Well, soon this Vessel will completely be my own. Forgive me until then.
Hazama: ...I wont give you my head.
Imperator: So you saw that? What an unpleasant man.
Hazama: Well then, I will go back. The preparation with the "coffin" is complete is seems, and soon the Cauldrons will be done as well. And after that...
Hazama: Did something happen? Well, "Phenomenon Intervention" needs "enormous" energy to use. And not only that, having a conflict with Master Unit so even "Imperator" would likely get tired.
The talk was over anyway. 13, lets return to tuning.
Hazama: After the synchronization of "Sword of Izanami" and Noel Vermilion is over... The "Nemesis Horizon" will be open.
With that done the Master Unit...
Terumi: How many years... How many years... How many years have I been waiting! How many loops!? How many hundreds of Loops!? How many thousands of Loops!? How many ten thousands of Loops!? Hundreds? Thousands? Ten thousands? Billions!? How many times have this worthless comedy looped?
Kukukuku... Only a little more... A little more and my hands will reach... The lost "Embryo"
With that this shitty worthless comedy will be over... Hatred will lead to more Hatred... Conflict will lead to more Conflict. The "party" will change into "Divine Calamity", all "spirits of the dead" will invite the "Day of Destruction".
And so, the true BlazBlue will be given birth...
Amane: When I finally found him. Carl, where did he go I wonder...
Rachel: Wait just there.
Amane: Well, if this isn't a beautiful lady. Do you have any business with me?
Rachel: “Answer me”, who are you?
Amane: Me? I'm Amane Nishiki, I lead a Dance troupe and is travelling around...
Rachel: I'm not asking for such a thing.
Amane: How scary. Don't glare at me with those “eyes”. When asking me who I am, that is all I can answer.
Rachel: Well then, let me change the question. “For what purpose” have you come to this “Ikaruga”?
Amane: Really. What a girl that likes to ask questions. Okay then...
I heard that a famous vigilante with the name of Carl Clover have come here, so I wish to have him join my trope, you see.
Amane: Oh, and one more thing... beautiful “Vampire” lady, “Slave Red” doesn't work on me.
Rachel: Could it be... are you Uzume? Fufu, how interesting. You said that your name was Amane, let me test you a little.
Amane: Uzume? I don't really understand it but... You want to see my dance? If that is so then I will have dance as well.
Rachel: And can you keep up with my Waltz?
Celica: What are you doing?
Ragna: Celica, huh. I was just wondering what that "tower" is.
Celica: Tower? Aa, that thing? You're right, what is that. You can see it from everywhere in Ikaruga. ... But is it only the tower you're thinking about?
Ragna: ... I was only thinking a little.
Celica: About tomorrow?
Ragna: No, I'm not thinking about whats happening tomorrow. To fight is what is happening all the time, I'm hunted by lot of people so the feelings around that part have gone numb.
Celica: Then about what?
Ragna: Before, when I saw Jin and Noel, I remebered what Kagura said. "For what reason are you fighting, for what reason are you throwing around that power"...
Those guys are fighting for "Tsubaki" this time. However, for what reason am I fighting for.
Celica: Isn't it for "Kushinada's Lynchpin"?
Ragna: That is one of the reasons this time. But, not only that... How do I say it, underlying "reason"?
Ragna: I can't really go into details but, I'm currently fighting to "defeat"... That is for no one's sake, but my "own" sake. That was true "strength" I thought.
However, when watching those guys, I started to get worried. Is it really okay to continue on like this?
Therefore I started to rethink... Why did I seek for "power". You know, the responsibility for those who "seek" "power".
Everyone will probably say, what are you saying by now, don't think about things that isn't needed to think about for now. I will probably not even be of any use in tomorrows fight.
Look, the current me is "incompetent". I was just beaten up by Jin as well. It is as Kagura said, the current me won't be able to win against Azrael.
Ragna: I know, I'm not that stupid. The one who seals my "Grimoire of Azure" is Celica, right?
Celica: Yeah, I'm sorry. It's not like I want to be in Ragna's way. But I can't help it, I don't know why it becomes like this.
Ragna: Really, I'm not that bothered. Sure it is a little inconvenience. But, thanks to losing my power I calmed my head down. It gives me time to rethink the thing known as "power". I'm actually thankful.
Lately, whenever something happens I immediately relied on the "Grimoire of Azure"... I relied on "power"... Not my power, "someone else's" power.
Then, what is my "power"? What is it that I can be proud of and call my "power"? The current me, is a useless person that can barely swing a sword. In that part, it's then no different then that from a coward who goes Gyaa Gyaa over having no power.
Celica: That's not true!!!
Ragna: H, Hey. What is it suddenly.
Celica: Ragna isn't a coward. You aren't incompetent! Ragna at that time "protected" me even when you couldn't move your right arm and use your right eye! You fought for your dear life!!
Even towards that "monster" that paralyses your feet with fear, you stood up against it on your own! Ragna is more heroic than anyone else, your strong! Don't say that you are a coward...!!
Ragna: ..."that time"?
Celica: Ah... Ahaha, I'm sorry, for suddenly rising my voice. I was a little confused. Don't mind it.
Ragna: No, I'm sorry as well. Didn't mean to complain. It looks like I'm a depending on you a little.
Celica: No, it okay. I could always listen to you complaining! Please go a head and depend om me more!
Ragna: Eh? No, that's a little rude.
Celica: I know! Ragna, I have a suggestion. From now on you can fight to protect me. ... Hows that? Doesn't that become a "reason" for you?
Ragna: Wha? What's up suddenly? And from what should I "protect" you?
Celica: From what? I don't know. Well it's okay isn't it, don't think so hard on the details. For the time being, from "anything, a lot"!
Ragna: I don't understand what you are trying to say...
Celica: Is it... no good?
Ragna: Uh! Okay. I understand. I can't win against those eyes. For the time being, I don't know from what but I will "protect" you. When that time comes tell me.
Celica: Thank you, Ragna!!
Ragna: Uwaa, I get it, get away from me.
Celica: Fufu. Ragna, could you listen to my for a while?
Ragna: What's the matter suddenly, acting so formal. Well, as thanks for before. Okay, I will listen to you.
Celica: It's... about some acquaintance of mine. Those people, one time won a big battle and became known as "heroes". However other then those "heroes" there was one more. Without no one knowing, he continued to fight alone, and when the fight was over he immediately returned home. Therefore he is an unsung "hero".
But you know. I think that person, was different then that of a "hero".
Ragna: Was it because he went home immediately?
Celica: No. That person wasn't a "hero"(英雄) but a "HERO"(勇者). Because, "hero" is the conclusion, right? When all is over that is what all the people around calls them as praise.
But a HERO is different. A HERO is like how it is written, "A Man with Courage"(勇気ある者). No matter how tough and hard it is, he stands up against that adversity. He who possesses the "true power".
And, he is my "loved" one...
Ragna: ... wait? Haven't I heard this story somewhere else. Well, it doesn't matter. So? Was that HERO your lover or something?
Celica: Eh!? Ah,ahaha, no that's wrong. ... It's one sided, I guess?
Ragna: He seems quite amazing, do you have many rivals? If there is anything I could do, tell me. I will help you since have helped me.
Celica: Really? ... Well then, I will have some anticipation... I guess.
Ragna: Cold... The wind have got a bit cold.
Celica: I guess we should return.
Ragna: Should do so, it would be for nothing if I get a cold and can't fight.
Celica: Yes, lets go back...!?
Ragna: What's the matter?
Celica: It's nothing. It looked like I was about to sneeze.
Ragna: It is cold here... are you okay?
Celica: Fufu. Ragna is really Ragna.
Ragna: Hm? What is it, it's starting to get a little unpleasant.
Celica: It's nothing. Lets go. Ragna should go to sleep, you have a match tomorrow, Good Luck!
Ragna: Alright. And then we get a hold on the Lynch pin. Celica, when we get hold of it... I leave it to you to activate the "Lynch pin"!!
Celica: Yes, leave it to me! It is "for that reason" I came here.
