Chapter Nine: Underground World
...but where is Mori and thems?
Hey, Joker! Is the Tendoujigoku really on this mountain.
[This is the right place.]
Just a little more---please wait for the right time.
[We're stuck here, huh.]
Hey, hey, guys---
Look. It's such a pretty flower!
Ah---it really is, Hime---
[I feel like I should take a hike.]
Anyway, we're going to a place with enemies waiting...
Why was Yanagi taken along.
It's going to be dangerous!!
You're wrong, Gorilla.
Mori Kouran is evil, and hasn't forgotten about targeting Yanagi-san.
[Once he gets the Tendoujigoku in his hands, he'll go after Yanagi next.]
With us nearby, we'll be able to protect her from the immediate enemy, Gorilla.
Got it? Gorilla.
You...do you really hate me?
Why are you crying...
Fuuko-san. Could I please borrow the "Kaku" madougu for a second.
N? You steal it, you die.
Open!! Open da dor!!
Why didn't anything come out, you bastard---.
I definitely saw it~~~
Mori-san put a Kaku madougu into the same place on the tree!
It's surely the same time...
[At this time, it made a large opening...]
[There in the cliff---it split open!]
Is it important which madougu is used?
Something like a key madougu.
Is that why we can't enter!!?
Well, well. So you don't know.
In truth, I don't want you to enter, even so I will tell you why.
It's not complete wrong!!
[The use of the Hokage madougu will work.]
Well then, why doesn't it open, Gramps!!
There's one more necessary item needed---"light"...!!
Hey, Domon. Bring the flashlight---!
Idiot! Not that kind of light!!
Wait for the moment...when the light born of the night---
A natural beam will appear!!
See!! It wasn't a lie, was it!!
[There's the proof!!]
S-sorry, Joker. Look, it's because Recca niichan is simple minded...
Since the clouds were covering the moon, it wouldn't open!
Ma, you were able to open the entrance...
Guys. Are we prepared?
What's to prepare?
[It's not like I'm ready to die.]
(Girl A:) That guy was only a pervert. Don't worry about it, Kaoru-kun!
(Girl B:) That's right! Be happy and forget that guy!!
(Girl:) On Sunday, go to the Doubutsu park with everyone!
(Girl:) We'll make lunches!
(Girl:) You'll judge whose is the best, Kaoru-kun!
That's right...this is the first time I've made friends my own age...
I'm "prepared to survive," Fuuko neechan.
No one will carry you away!!
Let's get them!!
...Hitotsu, futatsu, mitsu...yotsu...itsutsu, mutsu persons.
I feel them.
Of course, Hokage has come.
You're happy, aren't you, Rasen.
It's...like an underground world.
[It's wide enough for me to build a house.]
Hee, I'd pass trying to rob that house!
[Well, there may be "treasures"...]
[There are various obstacles, though.]
This isn't friendly.
The Hokage and Princess Yanagi have successfully entered the secret earth barrier.
Currently, they are at a point 30 meters from the opening.
Fighting hard within the traps.
Chapter Ten: The Curse of Tendoujigoku
There doesn't seem to be anymore traps.
A guy could become a missing person here?
Count down! Ichi
Now that you mention it, nobody's seen him?
Maybe---From the beginning, he didn't come it...
The "Tendoujigoku" is what kind of madougu!?
Everyone says it's the most terrible, evil thing, but what is it really?
Doesn't anyone even know what power it holds?
...I don't know either.
That Gramps, since we've gotten here...
What!? A group of zombies!!
Are they monsters protecting the barrier!?
Don't be blocking me!!
What is it? Fuuko...
They aren't enemies---
We were...orginally thieves...
[Right now...we may be horrible looking monsters...]
[But we were humans...]
[What happened to make you like this?]
In the deepest parts of this sealed cave, we've been sleeping with the curse of that madougu...
We haven't died.
[As for the month or day, I don't know...]
[It's been a very long time since we've entered here...]
During the time when we were humans, the ninja clan called "Hokage" existed...
These ninja had possession of mysterious weapons of magic called "Madougu"...
[Then disaster hit the Hokage, being ruined in Odanobunaga---
The madougu were hidden.
[But we knew of the Tendoujigoku called the "strongest" was within the Touzokudan nijyuichi---]
And so we came here searching for it.
One...and still another...died.
It's like the treasure was protected by the divine guard of nature, attacking us.
Only three of us remained alive...
Finally, we found---the Tendoujigoku!!!
The moment we touched it...
(Thief 1:) Guah-ah-ah-ah!?
(Thief 2:) Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah Hot! Hottttt!
(Thief 2:) My body...is burning. Uwah-ah-ah-ah!!
And then we heard in our heads a ringing voice---
(Voice:) Foolish things...you do not qualify for the treasure within my hands!!
(Voice:) You thought to taste the power I possess.
(Voice:) Stupid fools, I'll give you the pains from hell.
(Voice:) You are...cursed...
[...and so, from that time long ago, we have been undead thieves...]
[The opening has been closed, so we have forgotten what light is like...]
We thought we would inevitably die...
There's nothing else we desire than to die...
[Suicide is impossible...We don't have flesh to wound, our souls have disappeared---]
We remain to feel pain...thirst...hunger...
Even so...we are things that can't die...
It's the Tendoujigoku's...fault...
(Kagerou:) For a period of 400 years...I've walked alone in the dark...
(Kagerou:) Kill me...Recca...
I see undead people in hell who...
Zombie A: !
...still...you're in pain...you're suffering...
But...there's nothing...nothing I can give you...
Such terrible people...I...
...you...to feel our pain...to even hug my filthy body...?
For the sake of these monsters...
[Crying so hard...?]
A kind heart...a warm heart...
Ah...it's true...human are nice...
You are in possession of madougu?
With the power of the madougu---
to make us happy...
You aren't old enough yet to understand pain...but---
We wish to experience "death"!!
With the power of the madougu, surely the curse of the madougu can be severed...Please!!
They are suffering...feeling pain...
Even so...even so...
It's not compassion...I can't do it...
There's no excuse to kill people---
[If I do this for them, I wouldn't be the descendent of the ninja...!!]
Don't do it, Mikagami!!
[For a little bit of time, they can forget some pain and rest...]
When we are able to destroy the Tendoujigoku---their curse will most likely end.
Menou's father returned to normal when the "Mugen" was broken!!
...a little more...have only a little more patience...
I promise---to certainly purify your souls...
My chosen one who possesses potential is coming!!
The one who can hold my (Tendoujigoku's) power!!!
