Halloween Comeback! Super Ghouls'n Pumpkins - The Seed of Adventure
A：Elisabeth: —We've finally made it here, me. Are you ready for this?
A：Elisabeth: Also, is my makeup on right?
B：Elisabeth: ...Of course, me. We'll defeat the witch and take back Castle Csejte!
B：Elisabeth: And of course my makeup's perfect! It's me we're talking about!
A：Elisabeth: Yup! By the way... Why are there two of us?
B：Elisabeth: Well, it doesn't really matter,
B：Elisabeth: If you ask me, by splitting into two, our idol coefficient's gone up several thousand times.
B：Elisabeth: Even my idol frenemy got a bride costume so...
B：Elisabeth: That's right! If there are two of her, there should be two of me!
A：Elisabeth: Exactly! Smart thinking, me! And now, the most important thing, without a doubt, is...
A：Elisabeth: ...my new performance...
A：Elisabeth: “Heartbreak★Castle Csejte Heaven and Hell Dual Concert - Sweet Bloody Halloween Special: What The... It's So Sweet!”
A：Elisabeth: ...is about to begin!
A：Elisabeth: Ticket sales are projected to completely sell out! I had to reserve some tickets for Chaldea!
A：Elisabeth: As such, I can't let the schedule get messed up, now, can I?
B：Elisabeth: ...Which is why I need to take back the castle, me!
A：Elisabeth: Okay, let's go! Ready, set, go!
Both: Excuse me!
???: Who's making all that noise? It's the middle of the night! Why can't you be quiet?
???: ...Hmm. Why, if it isn't two ugly little girls!
???: Oooh... You little shrimp aren't very fashionable at all. What a sin it is to be like you!
???: And I am disgusted. Disgusted! You cling to the glories of the past...
???: You're so focused on something that you fail to see the bigger picture!
???: Yet I will accept that my glory must have blinded you. So sorry!
A：Elisabeth: Huh? Oh, uh, no. But thank you.
???: Humph! Don't get the wrong idea. It's not like I was trying to be considerate or anything when I said that!
???: Now get back to your dank little caves, you scrawny lizards!
???: Because, as you're quite well aware, staying out late is very bad for the skin!
A：Elisabeth: Tch... She gives off such a powerful aura just by standing there...! Her idol coefficient is really high like always!
B：Elisabeth: Jeez! I understand why I would shake in the presence of a powerful enemy, but for now, just concentrate!
A：Elisabeth: I-I know that! Now get ready, witch!
???: You make me laugh! I've never gotten myself ready for anything! Because—
???: Because my heart is free as a feather! I have no worries about anything!
A：Elisabeth: Ugh... this self-confidence and boastful attitude... She reminds me of someone...!
A：Elisabeth: She's like a woman I see every single morning... when I'm checking myself in the mirror...!
???: And, obviously, the word “witch” is inappropriate for me.
???: “Witch” in this region refers not to an embodiment of beauty such as me, but rather to that Halloween girl next to you, right?
B：Elisabeth: This is just a stage outfit based on the concept of a witch! I'm the mistress of this castle!
???: Hahaha! Hahahahahahaha!
???: You may not look that great, but you've got a real sense of humor! It's tasteless, low-class, and ridiculous!
Both: WHAT DID YOU SAY!?
???: Hahaha. If you're telling me that the job of a castle mistress entails wearing a ridiculous outfit like that, even I can't help but laugh.
???: Actually, I'm tired from laughing so much. I'm going to bed.
???: I'm the owner of this castle now. Naturally, I am also assuming direct control of these lands as well.
???: Being a ruler is much too difficult for tryhard lizards like the two of you! Now be good little commoners and quietly take your leave!
???: Hahaha! But I don't know if freeloading nobles like you can handle the life of a commoner!
B：Elisabeth: What did you say!?
???: Don't scream at me. It's like listening to surround sound.
A：Elisabeth: Shut up! You took my Castle Csejte without asking!
A：Elisabeth: You're not even from the right culture anyway!
A：Elisabeth: You don't match Castle Csejte at all!
???: ...? Are you so excited that you haven't even bothered to look outside?
???: Hahaha. It's too late. Behold the snake that foretells the end!
Both: Something weird's sticking out!?
???: Oh, you're back! Good evening! You do know I'm actually really busy?
A：Elisabeth: What is that!? Why is my castle a pyramid!?
A：Elisabeth: Actually, why is the pyramid upside down!?
B：Elisabeth: The castle's all smooshed! All you did was stack it on top! Talk about cutting corners!
???: Hahaha, you've got me there, little lizards! But I'll tell you one thing:
???: This is remodeling!
???: Farewell to that nasty, disgusting prison castle! What this era wants is simplicity!
???: The golden ratio is the basis of beauty in this world! That's right! Just like me! Exactly like me!
B：Elisabeth: No, it looks really out of place. I mean, this is Europe... Besides, how is that “remodeling”!?
???: Avant-garde! Hakone! Art park! Museum!
???: Anyway, this castle is under my control! But I understand beauty. I'm not a monster.
???: If you insist on holding a concert, out of respect for the former owners, I will offer you a place.
???: Yes... I know exactly where! How about that stable?
???: That's rock n' roll style right there! You can jam in the same kind of place that holy man was born in!
???: Hahaha! It's fine, it's fine. No need to thank me with words! Just bow down before me in gratitude!
Both: Hell no!!
???: Humph. So negotiations failed, huh? ...How disappointing.
???: I guess I have no choice then. Behold my power!
???: ...Is what I'd like to say, but fighting directly isn't elegant. It's bad for my skin, too.
???: So I'll leave that to my stand-in. Fierce, ugly knight of steel, come forth!
Tristan: Tristan the Tragic has arrived.
Lancelot: As has Lancelot the Sorrowful.
B：Elisabeth: No way...!
???: Now then, I have to get back to my book. Finish them by the time I'm done, you losers!
???: Of course, if you fail, you're banished. I have no use for men whose only redeeming quality is their beauty.
Tristan: How sad... You're underestimating our power, aren't you?
Lancelot: I agree with Tristan. We'll have this finished before you can read the next sentence.
Lancelot: Now then. It's time for you to go.
A：Elisabeth: H-Hey, time out!
A：Elisabeth: We're here to fight with that nasty woman over there!
???: A truly good mistress has talented retainers. Heh... I'm so perfect.
???: Oh, I'll give you one last bit of advice.
???: Remember this face, for it is my consolation to you.
???: After all, they say seeing beautiful things makes you more beautiful, right?
B：Elisabeth: Why, you...! Let's do this, me!
Tristan: Now go. We weren't told to take your lives.
Lancelot: You cannot beat us, let alone our mistress.
Lancelot: You need to grow at least 10 years older, cute little girls.
B：Elisabeth: Waah! We lost to a couple of literal homewreckers!
A：Elisabeth: W-We'll get you for this! You COUGAR LOVER!
A：Elisabeth: We'll be back! Real soon!
Lancelot: Hahaha. I look forward to it. Now let's go, Lord Tristan.
Lancelot: (He's genuinely shocked that she called him that!)
B：Elisabeth: (Panting) W-We made it out okay, somehow, but...
A：Elisabeth: What do we do, me!? We can't hold our concert at this rate...
B：Elisabeth: I hate to say it, but we can't handle this on our own.
A：Elisabeth: ...Uncle Vlad is away on business...
A：Elisabeth: And Tamamo Cat said, “Woof! I'm leaving on a journey for paws unknown!” and quit her job.
A：Elisabeth: By the way, do you think she was lying about why she quit? Were we tricked?
B：Elisabeth: It doesn't matter. No, I mean, it does matter, but...
A：Elisabeth: Waah! If only my [♂ Puppy /♀ Deerlet] were here!
B：Elisabeth: No sense in complaining about what we can't have.
B：Elisabeth: Ugh! I'm so pathetic, relying on others and whatnot!
A：Elisabeth: Humph. S-So what, me!? Do you have any good ideas?
B：Elisabeth: N-No, but...
A：Elisabeth: Then stop complaining!
B：Elisabeth: Wh-What!? You don't have any ideas either, do you?
B：Elisabeth: You're stupid, so just shut up!
A：Elisabeth: Argh! You're me, so you're stupid too!
B：Elisabeth: I'm a Caster, which makes me one rank higher than you in intelligence!
A：Elisabeth: There is no such stat!
A：Elisabeth: ...And you know what? I'm not sure it's a good idea for Caster me to be one rank lower in MP either!
B：Elisabeth: Gah! You know that's a sore spot for me!
A：Elisabeth: What, you wanna fight!?
B：Elisabeth: Huh? What's this light?
A：Elisabeth: Huh? Huh? What!?
Both: ((Wait! What happened!?))
Both: WHAT IS THIS!?
Section 1: "The Power of Friendship"
Dr. Roman: Okay, let's start the briefing!
Mash: Doctor, you seem more excited than usual. Did something good happen?
Dr. Roman: ...
Dr. Roman: ...Anyway, let's start the briefing!
Fujimaru 1: What's the matter, Roman?
Dr. Roman: What? Aren't I always like this? Haha, or maybe it's because I've been staying up late lately.
Mash: Doctor, sorry I haven't been able to help you out even though we're in such a tense situation.
Fujimaru 2: ...That's suspicious...
Dr. Roman: Oh, what's wrong, Fujimaru? You're looking at me strange.
Dr. Roman: Hahaha, maybe you're tired? Still, this is all to save the world, so I want you to do your best!
Mash: Now Fou's looking at the doctor suspiciously.
Mash: ...Is there something you're hiding from us?
Mash: Actually, why is the staff surrounding us right now?
Dr. Roman: ...Well, a minor Singularity has been detected, see...
Dr. Roman: Obviously we can't just leave it there. I would like you to investigate and correct it.
Fujimaru 1: ...So like what we always do?
Mash: Y-Yes. Master and I are all ready to go.
Mash: Now I don't think anything will hinder this mission, but...
Fujimaru 2: Are you hiding something?
Dr. Roman: ...
Dr. Roman: ...All right. In any event, please enter the Coffins! Get ready to Rayshift!
Dr. Roman: The briefing's over, so you need to head over there now!
Mash: Wait, Doctor! You still haven't told us where we're Rayshifting to!
Dr. Roman: ...Oh, someone dropped some documents here. This won't do at all.
Dr. Roman: Um, your Rayshift destination... Um, how do you read this again? Uh... I think it was...
Dr. Roman: Castle Csejte.
Dr. Roman: Yeah that's it! Got it? Time to head out!
Mash: Doctor! Did you just mention that one castle name we can never just let slide!?
Fujimaru 1: ...The nightmare returns...
Mash: Oh that's right! It's almost Halloween!
Mash: It was supposed to be a cordial gathering, but last year's Death Concert is still haunting us!
Mash: Senpai, it's too dangerous! That music will destroy your psyche if you continuously listen to it!
Fujimaru 2: All right, Mash! Dismissed!
Mash: I have only a bad feeling about this, so I'm going to take a voluntary leave of absence!
Dr. Roman: That's not going to work! All staff, scrum!
Dr. Roman: Once we save the world, I'll personally review your current salary!
Dr. Roman: It's time to show them the muscle you've gained from training with Leonidas!
Mash: Th-That's not fair, Doctor!
Dr. Roman: Let's do it! Crouch! Bind! Set!
Dr. Roman: Force them in!
Fujimaru 1: Why you...! We'll come and haunt you!
Dr. Roman: Fine! When you do, I'll welcome you with some pumpkin dishes!
Fujimaru 2: So the Doctor is the final boss!?
Dr. Roman: Hey! Don't go starting rumors about me!
Dr. Roman: In any event, head out!
Dr. Roman: Go, uh, keep Elisabeth company again this year!
Dr. Roman: ...Meaning, just go to her concert, okay? Nothing makes an idol like her sadder than an empty venue! And you shouldn't make idols cry!
Dr. Roman: Here, I'll even give you some of my glow sticks! Now then, commence forced Rayshift!
Fujimaru 1: We're here...
Mash: Yes, the Rayshift succeeded. Looks like Fou is here too.
Fujimaru 2: Now I'm depressed...
Mash: I didn't think we would come here again...
Mash: ...Communications seem fine. Doctor, the Rayshift succeeded.
Mash: However, we won't let this slide.
Dr. Roman: I kind of hope that you will... Anyway, how are things looking over there?
Mash: It looks like...a graveyard.
Mash: We can get back at the doctor later. Let's keep moving for now.
Mash: Sorry, Master.
Mash: If I remember correctly, last year when we came here, there were ghosts all over the forest.
Mash: We're in a graveyard, but I don't see any ghosts. I wonder what's going on.
Dr. Roman: Hmm. I'm getting a reaction of some kind. It's very close to you.
Mash: Hmm... Bugs.
Mash: Completely unrelated to Halloween, but a nuisance nonetheless.
Mash: Let's take them out!
Mash: Phew. The battle is over. Everything has been annihilated, so it should safe.
Mash: Shall we head into town, Master? Although I'm pretty sure Servants are going to show up and get in our way...
Fujimaru 1: So our reward is box seats at the concert...
Mash: Master, don't be discouraged.
Mash: It'll be fine. I'll be with you! We are one as Master and Servant!
Fujimaru 2: This sucks.
Mash: Up until now you were so optimistic about everything!
Mash: It'll be fine. When we get back... Yes, when we get back we'll have Amadeus play us some music!
Mash: We can request some really soothing music to listen to...
Mash: Looks like you're remotivated to continue the mission. Thank goodness...
Mash: Now, let's head towards town!
Mash: Fou, what's wrong? ...Could it be...
Fujimaru 1: Don't look behind you.
Mash: Th-That's right! What you don't see can't hurt you.
Fujimaru 2: Run!
Mash: W-We're just going to start running!? Wait, Master! Master!
???: ...Heh. It looks like my stealth Rayshifting worked. Hehehe... Be afraid! Be very afraid!
???: ...It's so cold. I didn't know the mountains in the West were this cold... That's a problem... I guess I'm dressed a bit too light...?
Section 2: "Hero Elly Gathers Allies"
Mash: ...That's strange. The town doesn't feel like Halloween at all.
Mash: ...Still, it doesn't seem like it was attacked or anything either.
Mash: And all the house lights are on, but I don't see any townspeople walking around...
Fujimaru 1: Actually, Mash...
Mash: Yes? ...Hmm? Up in the sky?
Mash: Um... What!?
Fujimaru 2: The castle...!
Mash: Huh? What is it, Master? What about the castle?
Mash: Castle Csejte...! What a mess!
Mash: And on top there's a pyramid...and it's upside down!!
Mash: It's just sitting there, Senpai! Like, boom!
Dr. Roman: I checked it out. The pyramid and the castle are from different epochs.
Dr. Roman: The former is obviously older. And the fact that it's crushing the castle like that means...
Fujimaru 1: It's not her?
Dr. Roman: Right. I've never heard of her having anything to do with pyramids.
Fujimaru 2: So no concert!?
Dr. Roman: Fujimaru, you sound way too excited. Anyway, that pyramid must be the source of the Singularity.
Mash: What should we do, Master? Head up there?
Fujimaru 1: Let's gather intel first.
Mash: Yes, but it might be difficult to ask the townsfolk for information...
Mash: ...Hmm? A tavern, you say? ...I see.
Mash: Neither of us can have alcohol, but let's go.
Fujimaru 2: We should head for a tavern.
Mash: I see...
Mash: People let their guard down when there's alcohol around. They're more likely to talk... even with newcomers like us.
Mash: All right! Let's go!
Mata Hari: Welcome♪
Mata Hari: My my, such young customers. Welcome to Mata Hari's tavern!
Mata Hari: Your one-stop shop for bittersweet meetings and farewells!
Mata Hari: Are you seeking traveling companions?
Mash: C-Companions? No, we're fine.
Mata Hari: Oh, is that so.
Mata Hari: Then perhaps that cute [♂ guy /♀ girl] with you came to find some other kind of companionship?
Mata Hari: I wouldn't mind spending the night with you, you know...
Mash: No, we're fine! Right, Senpai!? Right!?
Fujimaru 1: R-Right.
Mata Hari: That's too bad.
Mash: Actually, we'd like to ask about that pyramid...
Mata Hari: Oh yes, the pyramid. It fell from the sky one day. It really was sudden.
Mata Hari: Inside it you'll find a queen and the loyal knights who serve her.
Mata Hari: They banned Halloween. Can you believe it?
Mash: Banned... Halloween!?
Mata Hari: There was a notice from the queen.
Mata Hari: “If you object to the way I rule, if you're a reckless savage that dreams of getting rich fast, come and challenge this pyramid.”
Mata Hari: ...So she has declared.
Mata Hari: And so this town is searching for heroes to do just that–to take on Pyramid Csejte.
Warrior: I'll do it! I'm going to get rich off the pyramid's treasure!
Knight: Leave the defending to me, you guys!
Monk: We need a mage! I'm a priest that only knows how to heal using mundane means!
Thief: Heh, leave any doors and chests to me!
Mash: So many people from so many different lands... I see. No wonder it's so lively.
Sign: “Please take me home!”
Fujimaru 1: Act like you don't... notice...
Fujimaru 2: We're going to leave nice and quiet.
???: (Starry eyed)
Mash: Master, it's too late. She's noticed us. She's positively glowing!
???: [♂ Puppy /♀ Deerlet]! Hey there! Heeeeeey!
Mash: L-Let's make a run for it, Master!
???: Wait! Hey, waaaaaiiit!
Mash: She's chasing after us! Also, I think I just saw a familiar face!
Mash: Maybe that was just my imagination! But we don't have time for that!
Mash: Master! Master!
Mash: It was basic survival instinct that made us flee, but maybe we should at least listen to what she has to say!?
Dr. Roman: Y-Yeah! It's bound to be one of the causes of this Singularity, after all!
Fujimaru 1: Sorry, I just couldn't help it...!
Mash: Last year's Halloween must be a great source of trauma for you, Master...
Fujimaru 2: Mash is right, but...!
Mash: No, I get it. Our feet just started moving of their own accord!
???: You made me fall over! That hurt! Don't leave me behiiiiiiind!
Mash: Master... I hear crying... from behind us...
Fujimaru 1: Goodbye, eardrums...
Fujimaru 2: Hello, Halloween...
Mash: Okay... Let's head back.
Fou: Fou! Fou, fou!
???: What do you want? I have a broken heart, you know... Oh, [♂ Puppy /♀ Deerlet]!
???: Oh, come on! So you did hear me!
???: I'm not happy about this at all!
???: You made me so worried! You should be punished!
Mash: ...Is that you, Elisabeth...?
???: Have you forgotten!?
???: It's me, the celebrated diva, praised as a talent that only comes once every thousand years, an unbridled genius!
Elisabeth: Elisabeth the Crimson Hero!
Fujimaru 1: Where's Lancerbeth and Casteli?
Elisabeth: Why the nicknames!?
Elisabeth: ...They're not around anymore. They're alive in my heart.
Elisabeth: To be more specific, we fused together.
Mash: Fou seems to be shocked at how far removed from a Servant she's become.
Fujimaru 2: A swimsuit? At this time of year?
Mash: That's right. The swimsuit event is over, Elisabeth.
Elisabeth: What? Wait, you had a swimsuit event without me!? Where was my invite!?
Elisabeth: That's not fair! That's not fair at all!
Mash: ...Well, let's forget about that for now.
Elisabeth: Let's not!
Elisabeth: I want to know precisely why no one called me!
Mash: I see. So dual Elisabeths were driven out of Castle Csejte by this queen.
Elisabeth: Yeah, exactly. Now do you understand?
Elisabeth: The LanCas duo couldn't finish what they started. So now there's something I must do... For their sake.
Mash: In other words, once more–
Elisabeth: That's right!
Elisabeth: That cursed pyramid has destroyed my concert hall!
Elisabeth: I'm going to take it out and overthrow the queen within! That is the mission of the Crimson Hero Elisabeth!
Fujimaru 1: So that's what's going to happen this time...
Mash: Yes. I see. That's why there are tons of adventurers in the tavern.
Fujimaru 2: Crimson Hero...
Mash: Fou's trying to say something, but it's best not to translate it.
???: There she is! Surround her!
Dr. Roman: Oh? What's going on? This is...
Mash: Elisabeth, who are these people?
Elisabeth: The queen's lackeys! Be careful! They're all pretty strong!
Queen's Knight: We are knights in the queen's service. We fight to purge Halloween.
Queen's Knight: Those who speak of or desire to bring back Halloween shall be exiled or sentenced to hard labor, without exception!
Mash: That's terrible...!
Queen's Knight: And we also received a complaint that this girl over here... is, um... not wearing appropriate attire in public...
Elisabeth: That's not true! I'm quite obviously dressed as a hero! ...Wait, I am, right!?
Queen's Knight: (Ahem)
Queen's Knight: In any event, it's exile or hard labor. You're going to have to pick one!
Elisabeth: I don't have to be afraid of you any longer! Come, [♂ Puppy /♀ Deerlet]! We're going to fight!
Mash: Can you at least tell us why Halloween was banned?
Queen's Knight: Because, uh... Because the queen ordered it!
Mash: Then we'd like to ask the queen why.
Queen's Knight: The world's most lovely queen will not hold an audience with the likes of you!
Queen's Knight: Sorry, but we're going to restrain you!
Elisabeth: Like hell you are!
Elisabeth: If you're going to stand in the way of my concerts and everything I stand for...
Elisabeth: ...I don't care who you are. I'll use every ounce of my strength to defeat you!
Mash: Looks like there's no way around it. Let's go, Master!
Mash: By the way... Do you keep seeing someone lurking around here?
Queen's Knight: W-We've failed...! Retreat! Retreat!
Mash: We sent them running, but... they were all quite skilled.
Mash: A queen adored by knights of such caliber... I wonder what she's like.
Dr. Roman: We'll probably need to meet her if we're going to repair the Singularity.
Elisabeth: Now, [♂ Puppy /♀ Deerlet], you're going to help me, right!?
Fujimaru 1: Fujimaru has joined the party!
Elisabeth: ...Th-Thank goodness...
Elisabeth: Thank you... I'm so moved, I want to dance and sing right at this moment.
Mash: Not necessary, let's move!
Elisabeth: Eh!? Fast much!?
Elisabeth: ...Whatever. Anyway...!
Elisabeth: The legend of the Crimson Hero Elisabeth is going to start right here! That witch needs to brace herself!
Narration: Crimson Hero Elisabeth's Adventure has begun!
Mash: So why were you in the tavern with that sign?
Elisabeth: Oh, that? All I did was say this to the owner lady:
Elisabeth: “Now then! I'm looking for some strong, radiant companions! Ones who will put me in the spotlight and worship me!”
Elisabeth: “I'll be on vocals. I've never been in a band before. Looking for pros on guitar, bass, and drums.”
Elisabeth: When I did, she smiled and just handed the sign to me! Isn't that mean!?
Mash: I guess it serves you right...
Lancelot: Your Majesty, we have confirmed visitors from Chaldea. It seems they were caught in the Bounded Field that was put up.
???: Ha! Oh, I am so perfect, I predicted all of this! I of course have countermeasures in place!
???: With the ultimate gatekeeper on watch, my superiority cannot be challenged... Oh, it's too beautiful...
???: I rule this land appropriately, with tolerance and ruthlessness.
Queen's Knight: I-If I may, Your Majesty... Will Halloween continue to be banned?
???: Dunce! How about going to a salon and cleaning up your dull look first!
???: It's too soon for the common fools to celebrate Halloween!
???: Holding such a lighthearted festival when the world is in such an unstable state? Pure idiocy!
???: Endure with patience, and keep love within your heart! Follow in my footsteps!
Queen's Knight: ...But everyone was looking forward to Halloween... My children, too...
???: Blasphemy! Backtalk is punishable by death! But, for the sake of your children, I shall give you a day off. With remuneration!
???: Lay down your sword and return to your pitiful family at once! That is, if you value your life!
Queen's Knight: Er, Your Majesty? I, uh, I don't quite follow...
Lancelot: Just go home. It means you have tomorrow off.
Queen's Knight: ...Understood. Then with all due respect, I shall receive your punishment of...paid leave.
Lancelot: Now then, my queen. What would you have us do?
Lancelot: Shall we take them on now so we don't have to worry about them later?
???: Ho, ho, ho, ho, ho! You fool!
???: If we did that, it'd be like I was afraid of them for some reason!
???: I'm sending the knights into town. It'll prevent the citizens from becoming restless.
???: As for you two... Well, there's no need for you to be deployed.
???: I know you're planning on hitting on the local girls the second I send you there. Sorry, but things don't always go your way!
Lancelot: ...No, that's not what I...
Tristan: Unbelievable... She sees through our very way of life...
Lancelot: No, Lord Tristan. I really just care about the safety of the town.
Tristan: ...I hear there's a girl with a broken heart at one of the taverns. Apparently her man left her after losing his entire fortune on a bet the other day.
Lancelot: Which tavern is that? You mean that cute girl from Ash Tree Tavern on 3rd?
???: Ohoho. Maybe you would like to wait in prison instead of your own rooms?
Lancelot: Excuse us. We will remain on standby, Your Majesty.
Lancelot: Then we shall take our leave. Please get some rest, my queen.
???: I will, of course. Now leave immediately!
Lancelot: Yes, Your Majesty. ...Tristan?
Tristan: ... (Snoring)
Tristan: ...How sad. This intense pain is making me sad.
Lancelot: You know, in a way, that was quite impressive...
Section 3: "May King"
Elisabeth: First things first. We should get more people!
Mash: Are we not enough on our own...?
Elisabeth: No, that's not it! Mash, [♂ Puppy /♀ Deerlet], I'm always depending on you!
Elisabeth: But we're up against famous knights. Just the three of us isn't enough!
Elisabeth: Also, I'm a fantasy hero. They always have a wide variety of party members to support them!
Elisabeth: When I was an idol, I had someone on drums and taiko, woodwind, and more, all to back me up!
Fujimaru 1: That's a lot of percussion.
Elisabeth: Yes, we played to the primal beats! You could really feel it!
Fujimaru 2: We need more cowbell...
Elisabeth: I know... But I think there's an even more pressing issue at hand...
Mash: Umm... So you'd like a Caster as well?
Elisabeth: Yep, yep! And a cleric type would be good too. One who can use their cure magic for healing!
Mash: Healing, huh...
Nurse: ...Now then, let's begin the treatment.
Nurse: This is to save you. You will have to endure one or two broken bones, and maybe the loss of an arm or two. Or three.
Nurse: Okay, here I go!
Monk: Hm? Healing? You don't need that yet. We can self-heal through adrenaline and endorphins alone!
Monk: Come now, don't cry. Pull yourself together. You're a hero, right!?
Serial Killer: Hmm... I don't really know what I'm doing, so I'm going to take you apart. I'll do my best!
Elisabeth: ...Let's handle the healing ourselves!
Fujimaru 1: Good idea!
Mash: Finding the right person for the job is harder than I thought... Is there anyone else who can heal?
Fujimaru 2: Is there no one else who could do it?
Mash: Others who could... Perhaps Sanson?
Sanson: There, I healed you.
Sanson: To think that I would be healing people, when I used to execute people. Hehe, how ironic...
Sanson: Yes, I have sinned...
Sanson: Oh, Marie... Marie... Will I ever be able to forgive myself?
Mash: He'd be too burdened with guilt to even do his job...
Mash: It's no use. Nobody comes to mind.
Mash: How about we head back to the tavern and ask there?
Elisabeth: Uh, I'm not sure about the tavern...
Mash: ...I suppose you're right. In that case, Doctor...
Dr. Roman: ... (Yawn)
Fujimaru 1: Hey!
Dr. Roman: Yikes! Talk about an ominous voice!
Dr. Roman: I had a rare occasion to relax, and I couldn't resist...
Dr. Roman: Don't worry, I've confirmed your location. What's going on?
Mash: We want to find a Servant that can join us, so we'd like you to widen the search range as much as possible.
Dr. Roman: Okay, roger that. ...It's weak, but there's a signature near you.
Mash: What!? Near us!?
Mash: Master, be careful! Someone might be here to ambush us!
Elisabeth: Huh? What? Is someone here?
Elisabeth: Show yourself!
Mash: ...It's quiet. Doctor, are you sure...?
Dr. Roman: Of course I am! I'm doing my job! I really am!
Dr. Roman: But if it's that close and you can't tell, then that means—
Mash: An Assassin, I imagine.
Dr. Roman: They haven't moved at all, so I'm guessing they don't mean you any harm.
Mash: Master, that scream...!
G：Elisabeth: Who set this trap here!? M-My leg's stuck and I can't move...!
G：Elisabeth: Something weird's coming! I can't move! Save me, [♂ Puppy /♀ Deerlet]!
Fujimaru 1: Let's go save her!
G：Elisabeth: [♂ Puppy /♀ Deerlet]! My leg! It's stuck! I can't move!
G：Elisabeth: Save meeeee!
Mash: It's okay! We're coming! Master, give me your orders!
G：Elisabeth: Save me before you do that!
Fujimaru 1: Sorry, in a second!
Mash: The battle is over.
Dr. Roman: Good work. I'm not seeing any more enemies in the surrounding area.
Dr. Roman: Except for the KO'd demi-dragon in front of you, I mean.
Mash: Okay, Doctor. So...
Mash: The constant flailing must've made all her blood rush to her head and knocked her out. I suppose we should get her down.
Elisabeth: That was mean! You just left me there!
Mash: Sorry, we had to prioritize the situation...
Elisabeth: In any event, there isn't anyone here! I'll turn you into a pincushion for lying to me!
Dr. Roman: That's strange. Looks like they just won't come out.
Dr. Roman: It's almost like they're saying, “I want nothing to do with this zero who's mistaken herself for a hero! I'm going to stay in my room!”
Mash: We'll just have to bring them out somehow...
Fujimaru 1: Oh...
Mash: Master, you look like you just saw the world ending or something!
Dr. Roman: Your spiritual essence is also wavering! Are you okay, Fujimaru!?
Elisabeth: Wh-What's wrong, [♂ Puppy /♀ Deerlet]? You don't look so well.
Elisabeth: Do you want to hear a song? Will you feel better if you hear me sing?
Mash: Elisabeth, that's—
Fujimaru 1: I...just might.
Both: WHAT DID YOU SAY!?
Dr. Roman: That... That can't be! Fujimaru, this is all my fault!
Dr. Roman: You must've been carrying around a heavy mental burden all this time!
Dr. Roman: I'll Rayshift you back, and we can try this Singularity again later...
Mash: Master, pull yourself together! Um, well... You can do it! You can do it!
Fou: Fou, fou, fou!
Elisabeth: [♂ Puppy /♀ Deerlet]... You've finally become captivated by my songs...!
Elisabeth: Very well. This will double as my daily voice training. I'll sing my heart out for you!
Elisabeth: Consider yourself lucky.
Elisabeth: You're going to be the first ones who get to hear my songs after becoming a hero.
Dr. Roman: I wonder if a flock of wyverns will randomly come to attack!?
Dr. Roman: If not, Roman soldiers will suffice. Honestly, anything's fine... Whoops! Guess not!
Mash: It's...too late...!
Hold it riiiight there!
Fujimaru 1: Thank goodness...!
Elisabeth: Huh? Uh... It's the green... You know...
Mash: Robin Hood!
Elisabeth: Yeah, that's it!
Robin Hood: D-Dammit! I accidentally released my No Face May King!
Robin Hood: Fujimaru... You're reckless.
Elisabeth: Huh? Huh? Wait, what's going on?
Mash: Master risked it all to bring the hidden Servant out...!
Elisabeth: ...I don't really get it, but this is all thanks to my song, right?
Elisabeth: I'm just glad I was able to help [♂ Puppy /♀ Deerlet].
Fujimaru 1: Yeah...
Robin Hood: If it's going to weigh on your conscience later, then don't bother doing it at all...
Elisabeth: I get it! That trap that got me a moment ago!
Elisabeth: That was your doing, wasn't it!?
Robin Hood: What a pain. You have surprisingly good intuition. Yeah, yeah, sorry about that.
Robin Hood: The outskirts of town have been dangerous lately. Pests and werebeasts have been lurking about.
Robin Hood: Probably because it's almost Halloween. The monsters are getting all excited, too.
Robin Hood: As a guy who roosts around these parts, I can't sleep at night without setting up some traps. I get all anxious.
Elisabeth: Are you sure that's the werebeasts' fault? Is it not just that you need traps around to feel at ease?
Robin Hood: The latter, of course. A free safe haven doesn't feel right. Safety is maintained through hard work and money.
Fujimaru 1: You're pretty cautious.
Robin Hood: Yep, I'm a cautious guy. Only the humble survive in the forest.
Robin Hood: I'm naturally a coward. I'm scared to see my enemy's face straight on.
Elisabeth: Is that why you take them down from the shadows? You're actually an Assassin, aren't you?
Fujimaru 2: Werebeasts...
Robin Hood: Yeah, beasts typically don't go near human territory. They're careful, after all.
Robin Hood: But they've gotten so close. We're in a perilous situation here.
Mash: It does seem that it is unusually dangerous here. I bet that pyramid is the main culprit.
Elisabeth: That's right, Mash! Nicely done!
Elisabeth: That pyramid is the cause of everything! I'm sure something can be done if we travel there!
Robin Hood: You think so?
Robin Hood: To be honest, the werebeasts started showing up way before the pyramid—
Robin Hood: Hey, looks like someone else got caught in the trap.
Robin Hood: If you're going to take on the pyramid, I don't mind lending a hand. That queen's brazen attitude is just too much for me.
Robin Hood: I was just thinking that she could use a little punishment.
Mash: Thank you very much! Elisabeth, we got ourselves a scout!
Elisabeth: Scout? You mean someone who looks for potential idols!?
Elisabeth: ...But I don't feel like joining an agency yet...
Elisabeth: What should I do...?
Robin Hood: Considering you're a ruler, I really think you should stop daydreaming like that, you know?
Elisabeth: Sh-Shut up. Anyway, let's take out those werebeasts!
Elisabeth: [♂ Puppy /♀ Deerlet], Mash, Robin... Follow me!
Elisabeth: I can't have dirty werebeasts attacking my town!
Robin Hood: ...
Mash: Robin, what's wrong?
Robin Hood: Oh, nothing. Just thinking about how the apple doesn't fall far from the tree, so to speak...
Robin Hood: That dragon girl has no other plan but to rush in. We'll just have to support her, won't we?
Elisabeth: There you are! Hahaha. Something really did get caught!
Elisabeth: You look stupid hanging upside down like that!
Mash: Elisabeth! You should think about what happened to you a few minutes ago!
Elisabeth: I decided to stay positive, and keep anything that happened in the past locked away in my heart!
Robin Hood: Well how about you examine some of those things tucked away in your heart, huh?
Elisabeth: Yeah, I couldn't forget them even if I wanted to!
Elisabeth: Anyway, Green! You're joining us once we take them out!
Robin Hood: Sure. Once we get rid of all of them, there's no reason for me to stay in this forest anyway.
Robin Hood: This is totally going to be a pain, but I guess I have to. I'll join you on your Death Tour!
Elisabeth: It's not a “Death Tour”! It's a curing, shiny concert tour!
Elisabeth: Alright, the scout will now scout for us! You're going to keep your promise, right?
Robin Hood: Fine. So what do we do? Barge into the pyramid now?
Elisabeth: No, I want one more person, I think.
Fujimaru 1: A four-person party is pretty standard.
Mash: I-Is it? I thought it was six...
Elisabeth: Anyway, [♂ Puppy /♀ Deerlet], I want a mage!
Fujimaru 2: A mage!
Elisabeth: That's right, [♂ Puppy /♀ Deerlet]!
Robin Hood: Huh. You're going to go scout a mage, huh... Well, that's fine.
Robin Hood: I do know someone, but... um...
Mash: Is there a problem?
Mash: Is it because they have gone insane, or that they build miniature gardens, or that they're fighting between AC and DC, or that they summon a flying saucer...?
Robin Hood: ...Well, those would be problems, yeah... It's just, she's a lot like someone we know.
Dr. Roman: A lot like who?
Robin Hood: (Points silently)
???: (Gasp!) I just had a feeling of impending disaster!
???: But he who runs in the face of the enemy does not deserve the mantle of “pharaoh.”
???: No matter what disaster it may be, I shall humbly fight it off!
Section 4: "PHAAARAAAOHHH"
Elisabeth: ...Hey, are we there yet?
Robin Hood: Sure, just wait a little longer.
Mash: Robin, Robin.
Mash: Um... Who is this mage you're talking about, and how is she like Elisabeth?
Robin Hood: They're practically one and the same. She's just a bit more intelligent.
Robin Hood: She's a bright one, but she's narrow-minded. Arrogant. Bossy. Fairly serious, but with a low boiling point.
Robin Hood: She jumps to conclusions and goes out of control, leading to disastrous consequences. It's all very painful to watch.
Elisabeth: What? That's not like me at all.
Both: It's just like you.
Robin Hood: She's a pharaoh, and a queen, as well as a self-proclaimed god of the sky and the underworld.
Elisabeth: What? Don't you think that's too much description? Only idols of little talent have that many traits.
Mash: Noblewoman, vampire, serial killer, bat wings, dragon horns, idol, dragon girl. Isn't that too much too?
Elisabeth: Wait, how come all my traits sound negative!?
Dr. Roman: Hey, hold it. I'm detecting a powerful response...
C：???: Who's intruding in my territory this late without an appointment? Begone, impudent ones!
Mash: S-So sudden!
Robin Hood: Calm down! It's an illusion. An illusion!
Robin Hood: Hey there, Your Majesty.
C：???: May King, you must be mad to bring them here.
C：???: We made a pact to protect one another's territory.
Robin Hood: Firstly, stop calling me that. It's embarrassing.
Robin Hood: And secondly, what's your deal? Bringing out a scary illusion to intimidate us and whatnot?
C：???: Well, what did you expect?
C：???: I don't know about you and the shield girl, but that woman there has a nasty aura.
Elisabeth: Eh? Me?
C：???: Indeed. Tell me your name, impudent one.
C：???: You're... I don't know...um, like... The fact that I feel a subtle kinship with you is ticking me off!
C：???: This may sound sudden, but I hereby declare you my eternal rival! Got it!?
Elisabeth: Fine by me!
Elisabeth: For some reason, when I'm talking to you, my head starts to hurt and it's ticking me off!
C：???: I see. So it looks like our opinions align.
Elisabeth: Right. That's good.
Both: TELL ME YOUR NAME!
Mash: When these two start talking, I get the feeling it will never end, Master!
Fujimaru 1: Introduce yourselves! Both of you!
C：???: Huh? Oh, r-right.
Fujimaru 2: My name is !
Elisabeth: Huh? Name? Oh, right. Name. Yes, name.
Nitocris: My name is Nitocris. I am a pharaoh from a distant land.
Nitocris: The god of the underworld, and the incarnation of the sky god Horus.
Nitocris: And now, I study magecraft while I frolic with my phantoms in a deep cave.
Elisabeth: My name is Elisabeth Báthory. As you can see, I'm an idol.
Elisabeth: My specialty is idol pop, I suppose. An since I have draconic blood, naturally I also have a breath attack!
Elisabeth: And I'm also a distinguished noble. And these wings and horns? Cute, aren't they? Anything else?
Nitocris: I see. Now we understand each other well.
Elisabeth: That's right. I think so too.
We'll never get along!!
Robin Hood: No, I think you two are getting along just fine.
Nitocris: How!? She's a typical spoiled Western noble girl!
Nitocris: She's the type of woman I hate the most in this world! She needs to suffer more!
Elisabeth: Th-That's my line! I hate that “Oh, look at me, I'm a queen” attitude! It makes me want to throw up! Especially since you're an old hag!
Mash: (Master, is she talking about Carmilla?)
Fujimaru 1: Probably...
Mash: (It's very sad, isn't it...?)
Fujimaru 2: They're denying each other, so yeah...
Robin Hood: She's lived a complicated life, too, huh?
Elisabeth: I can't take this anymore! It's time to duel! I'll smash your face in with my holy sword!
Nitocris: Fine! I'll teach you and your 80s style who's really the boss!
Nitocris: That armor is just old! I can't say exactly what's old about it, but it's very old!
Elisabeth: What? You don't even know that retro style is the new trend!? What a dummy!
Nitocris: The only thing retro we need around here is Egypt! You moron!
Mash: Master, I don't understand what's going on. Fou's cries are easier to follow!
Elisabeth: What are you doing? Let's go, [♂ Puppy /♀ Deerlet]! Crimson Hero Elisabeth is going to take down the evil mage!
Elisabeth: Follow meeeeee!
Mash: Hey! Please don't take Master away!
Robin Hood: Argh! Damn it! We've got no choice but to follow them!
Nitocris: First, let's have you fight my pretty, pretty phantoms!
Elisabeth: Bring it on! Come on, [♂ Puppy /♀ Deerlet]!
Fujimaru 1: I got it, so let go of my hand!
Elisabeth: We're through! Let's keep going!
Elisabeth: My throat's all warmed up now!
Nitocris: Tch, I can hear those evil sound waves all the way here.
Nitocris: It's like the wails of the dead from the underworld! Honestly, it's a genre I like!
Nitocris: Idol pop... I guess I can't take it lightly!
Elisabeth: What do you mean by wails of the dead!?
Elisabeth: The motto of idol pop is “Cute, Cuter, Cutest,” you know!
Nitocris: But I'm not done yet! ...Sphinx! Come on out!
Fujimaru 1: What!?
Nitocris: Heheh. It costs a lot to rent, but this sphinx is the true guardian of my cavern.
Nitocris: Pharaoh Ozymandias may not look it, but he runs a very honest business...
Nitocris: “Oh, you want to borrow my army of holy beasts? Then the rental fee is three scarabs a week.”
Nitocris: “If you want a Marika Sphinx, add in 10 chains. Also, make sure its stomach is full when you bring it back.”
Nitocris: He gave me those very reasonable terms! Now, get them!
Elisabeth: Tch! Even I can tell... That thing is really powerful!
Elisabeth: But don't worry, [♂ Puppy /♀ Deerlet]. I will win. You know why?
Fujimaru 1: Not a clue...
Elisabeth: Heheh, so even my little [♂ Puppy /♀ Deerlet] doesn't know? Then I'll tell you.
Fujimaru 2: Because you're strong?
Elisabeth: Close. But might doesn't always make right.
Elisabeth: It's because I'm a hero. In other words, the good guy always wins!
Elisabeth: Now do you get it, [♂ Puppy /♀ Deerlet]?
Nitocris: ...That's strange. My pharaoh-vision shows your original alignment as Chaotic-Evil...
Elisabeth: Sh-Sh-Shut up! Bring it, you hag!
Elisabeth: ...That was surprisingly easy!
Nitocris: Th-That's strange! There's no way my guardian sphinx is this weak!
Fujimaru 1: Maybe it's not in its natural habitat?
Nitocris: That's it! How foolish! I should've brought a heater!
Fujimaru 2: It seemed tired.
Nitocris: (GASP!) It must have been tired from its long journey from Egypt...!
Nitocris: And it probably couldn't adapt to the environment either! How foolish of me!
Elisabeth: Now we finally meet!
Nitocris: So you made it through all my challenges, and now here you are at last.
Nitocris: I shall praise you for that! But this is the end of the line!
Nitocris: Why? Because I'm splendidly strong! I've been cooped up in my room perfecting my magecraft!
Elisabeth: ...Unbelievable. She's bragging about being a shut-in!
Elisabeth: Wait, are you okay? I really hate dark and cramped places.
Nitocris: Me too! But this is the underworld right now! If I want to enhance my dark pharaoh power, this is the only place!
Nitocris: To be honest, the Western underworld is just too damaging.
Nitocris: The Egyptian underworld is vast, comfortable, and dry... Why do you people view death as a negative thing?
Nitocris: Rather, why do you have to punish souls who have already lost their bodies? Does your god actually hate humans?
Elisabeth: ...Listen to you. You're pretty cynical. You look pretty sporty, but you're actually just another bookworm.
Nitocris: Book...worm? No, I study curses, see...
Nitocris: I wrote messages as a pharaoh, but most of what I wrote were spells and curses...
Elisabeth: So you're a bass player!
Elisabeth: The person that works hard to set the tone of the band from behind the scenes and carve an oppressive sound into the audience!
Elisabeth: But the sound is usually hidden under the melody of the guitar. The guitar plays the melody, the bass lays down the rhythm...
Elisabeth: Oh, it's so sad! The bassist is lonely, but their job is the most rock n' roll of them all! That's what I think!
Elisabeth: You must've endured a lot, despite your demeanor!
Nitocris: I don't really know what you mean by bassist, but I appreciate your noticing that!
Nitocris: And I can see you struggle a lot, too! Just look at how hard the people around you struggle!
Elisabeth: Yes, of course! Wait... Was that a compliment?
Fujimaru 1: Of course.
Elisabeth: Right!? Zebra stripes says some good things, despite being our enemy!
Fujimaru 2: That's Nitocris for you... She's just a little off...
Dr. Roman: Yeah. She has the insight to understand a situation in a single moment, but her conclusions always seem to miss the mark...
Elisabeth: I accept it. That woman is a tough foe! That's why I won't use any tricks. I'll fight her head-on!
Nitocris: Haha, bring it on. If it weren't for this situation, I'm sure we'd—
Elisabeth: Yes, I'm sure we could've been friends...! But that future will never happen.
Nitocris: It's sad to say it, but you're right. Now let's fight...!
Fujimaru 1: Are you sure you guys aren't actually getting along...?
Both: 100% SURE!
Nitocris: Heh... Not bad... I've run out of my hardworking phantoms...
Elisabeth: You're not so bad yourself. Those were some amazing moves... Also, those phantoms are cute.
Elisabeth: Especially the ones with the sheets on their heads. The ones that go in circles.
Elisabeth: I feel like they could give me some useful ideas for my concert!
Nitocris: So you noticed my Medjeds... I guess you're not just a harmful beast after all.
Nitocris: Your songs really were wonderful... The phantoms were all applauding...
Nitocris: And so was I... It felt so good that I was inspired spiritually.
Fujimaru 1: Huh?
Fujimaru 2: Huh?
Nitocris: It's true that the pyramid has been in the back of my mind. As pharaoh, I figured I needed to “say hello”...
Nitocris: But I didn't think it was right to take them on alone, so I stayed here in my little abode.
Nitocris: ...Very well, Crimson Hero Elisabeth. I will help you with your concert.
Elisabeth: Thank you. I have a feeling we will become good friends.
Mash: (Panting) We've finally caught up... Huh?
Robin Hood: A-A handshake? Not a fight?
Mash: Um... Master? What happened?
Fujimaru 1: I knew they'd be friends.
Robin Hood: ...But if two troublemakers become friends, that just means an exponential increase in problems for us...
Both: WHAT DID YOU SAY!?
Elisabeth: Anyway, let's get going! Our goal is to reach Pyramid Csejte!
Elisabeth: Our next stop takes us through the Glacier Zone!
Elisabeth: ...Now that I think about it, yes, it's weird to have something like that on the way to a castle...
Dr. Roman: I think it's a staple for these type of adventures.
Dr. Roman: ...Hm? I'm seeing one, two, three, four... five Servant responses...
Dr. Roman: There's one too many of you!
Ibaraki-Douji: ...Humph. There's an un-candy lack of candy around here... And no, that wasn't meant to be a joke.
Ibaraki-Douji: What's going on, Fujimaru? You didn't lie to me, did you!?
Ibaraki-Douji: I thought Halloween was supposed to be this wonderful festival where you can eat all the candy you want!
Fujimaru 1: What are you doing here?
Ibaraki-Douji: Idiot! I've been here the whole time! You just failed to notice me!
Fujimaru 2: How long have you been here?
Ibaraki-Douji: Fwahahaha! I Rayshifted here with you!
Mash: So I wasn't seeing things...! Thank goodness!
Elisabeth: Huh? Who are you? I don't want a Jester joining my party!
Ibaraki-Douji: Who are you calling a Jester!? I'm not some drunk Kyoto commoner!
Mash: Looks like the next episode will still be chaotic!
F：???: Hahahaha! What a boring book this is! Though it is killing time, I guess...
F：???: You there! The sleeping pig!
Tristan: Yes ma'am. Sleeping pig Tristan, at your service.
F：???: I don't like that music. Play something else.
Tristan: Then what about this?
F：???: Stop it, you're driving me crazy! I can't read my book in peace!
Tristan: I thought a more upbeat tune would be better...
F：???: There are limits to how far you can go! Limits!
F：???: And night has fallen. Loud noises are unrefined.
F：???: And actually, how did you play that sound with a harp?
Lancelot: Excuse me, my queen.
F：???: What do you want? I'm going to bed. If you have something to report, tell me tomorrow—
Lancelot: Pharaoh-You-Know-Who has joined the party from Chaldea.
WHAT DID YOU SAY!?
F：???: The pharaoh aligned herself with that stupid, foolish girl who lacks even a shred of intelligence!?
Tristan: How sad! Our queen's face is twisted in sorrow...
Tristan: ...but even then it is still radiantly beautiful...
F：???: With her involved, they will even break through the Lava Zone, not to mention the Glacier Zone...
Lancelot: What shall we do, my queen?
F：???: It seems an idiot can exceed one's expectations.
F：???: This is difficult... Humph...
Tristan: The worried look on Your Majesty's face is beautiful too—
F：???: I'm trying to think, and there you are getting in the way. Go jump out a window.
Tristan: Oh... I can fly...!
Lancelot: He really jumped...!
Lancelot: He's using sound waves to fly...
F：???: Of course he can fly! Haven't you heard of the Tristan thrush? Anyway, Sir Lances-A-Lot-Of-Married-Women...
Lancelot: Yes, Your Majesty... I mean, what!?
F：???: I'm deploying those girls to the Lava Zone. Hold them back no matter the cost.
Lancelot: Wh-What...? But those girls are far too dangerous.
Lancelot: They might get out of control. No, I mean they will! I'm sure of it!
F：???: Hahahaha! It'll be fine! Why? Because it's me doing it!
Lancelot: (That worries me...)
Section 5: "It's Frozen, So Let It Go"
Ibaraki-Douji: There's no need to introduce myself! That's right, it's me, Ibaraki!
Fujimaru 1: You were in the corner hiding.
Ibaraki-Douji: If you noticed me there, you should've said something! Or are you teasing me!?
Fujimaru 2: I didn't notice you.
Mash: Sorry. I thought you were some child trying to stalk us for some sweets!
Ibaraki-Douji: You thought I would hang around just for some sweets!? They were good, yes, but still...!
Ibaraki-Douji: Argh! You're all a bunch of imbeciles! Don't you know who I am!?
Ibaraki-Douji: I'm the leader of the oni, as well as a skilled thief notorious in the capital!
Ibaraki-Douji: I am Ibaraki-Douji, a thief so great that I was able to build the great Ibuki Shuten Palace on Mt. Ooe!
Dr. Roman: A thief... Right, I suppose that's accurate... There are records of you stealing treasures from the nobility...
Ibaraki-Douji: Hahahaha, that's right!
Ibaraki-Douji: “Princess Kaguya” is such a joke! If I had been around in that period, those five treasures would've easily been mine!
Ibaraki-Douji: So, do you fear me now!? Do you respect me!? Will you praise me!? Will you give me some sweets!?
Ibaraki-Douji: I am an evil monster, an oni... Ah-choo!
Ibaraki-Douji: Sniff... It's cold... I hate being cold... Mother always told me to wear a belly warmer...
Ibaraki-Douji: ...Um, wait. Uh, where was I in my story?
Fujimaru 1: I think we've heard enough.
Ibaraki-Douji: Enough, eh? I see, I see. Then you're quick to understand. That's not a bad thing.
Ibaraki-Douji: But Mash. You look as cold as me. Aren't you uncomfortable? Do you not have a belly warmer?
Mash: No, I'm fine... But it's true that the temperature is low in this area.
Mash: Senpai, as long as you're in your Chaldea uniform, you should be fine. It's resistant to both the cold and the heat.
Mash: What about you, Elisabeth? Um, since you're exposing yourself more than usual...
Elisabeth: ...I'm cold...
Fujimaru 1: Well, I mean, your outfit...
Elisabeth: I-I'm a hero, so it shouldn't be a problem! Heroes don't catch colds!
Mash: I don't think she's okay... Let's get through here as quick as we can.
Nitocris: Y-Yes, good idea...
Nitocris: From a pharaoh point of view, I think it's best we just run right through.
Nitocris: My garments don't cover much either!
Robin Hood: Got it. Then let's go for a little run!
Elisabeth: Waaah, it's cold!
Nitocris: My lovely phantoms normally cool me down, but in this weather, they're kind of annoying!
Robin Hood: Yeah... Even I'm cold. And I'm one of the more properly dressed ones.
Mash: By the way, Ibaraki! Why did you come here!?
Ibaraki-Douji: (Talking with mouth full of something) Oh, no special reason. I just felt like it.
Mash: ...Oh. You just felt like it...
Mash: And it's not for extremely selfish reasons, correct?
Fujimaru 1: Trick?
Fujimaru 2: Treat?
Ibaraki-Douji: I don't understand. Is that a password? But that tart thing was delicious.
Ibaraki-Douji: And this “candy” stuff is exceptional as well! But it's so sweet, I'm afraid my fangs will melt!
Ibaraki-Douji: ...Sheesh. Back in the day, a single piece of konpeitou was enough to make me swing between joy and sorrow...
Ibaraki-Douji: I wish Mother were here, because then I could give her some... But anyway, mmm, I'm very curious about those pound cake things too...
Mash: You've developed quite the sweet tooth...
Mash: No wonder Shuten treats you like a child...
Ibaraki-Douji: What are you talking about? This is not my intention!
Ibaraki-Douji: Humans are the ones who offer me sweets to save their lives!
Ibaraki-Douji: Meat is a better choice than sweets when you get hungry. Then again, after becoming a Servant, I am never hungry!
Ibaraki-Douji: So I'll let them live in exchange for this unsubstantial offering of sweets, but just this once. Welp, I feel like I'm going to melt!
Dr. Roman: I see. Intentions aside, your true feelings are totally showing.
Ibaraki-Douji: But once you step out of town, what the heck is going on!? Treat! Treat! Treeeaaat!
Ibaraki-Douji: I keep yelling the password, but no one shows up! Ah! Oh no! I'm getting sugar withdrawal symptoms...!
Ibaraki-Douji: I need something to munch on! Something sugary! Something tough!
Ibaraki-Douji: But if you don't have anything like that, one of those Evil Bones you always have stocked up will do!
Fujimaru 1: Oh hell no! Anything but an Evil Bone!
Ibaraki-Douji: Then candy! Marshmallows would be fine, too!
Ibaraki-Douji: Come to think of it, running around in the cold is making me crave something with calories in it!
Fujimaru 1: What about Mash!?
Ibaraki-Douji: Mmm, she looks soft but not sweet! Rejected!
Fujimaru 2: I don't have any more!
Dr. Roman: Hahaha. That's because we used a lot on Caster Elisabeth.
Ibaraki-Douji: What...did you just say!?
So... no more sweets? All gone?
Ibaraki-Douji: But I still haven't had my favorite–this thing you call “chocolate”!
Mash: That's the way the cookie crumbles...
Ibaraki-Douji: Grrr, grrr, hahahaha! ...I'm going home...
Ibaraki-Douji: I'm going back to the mountain!
Mash: P-Please, wait, Ibaraki! I'll give you sweets when we get back to Chaldea!
Mash: Our meeting up here must be fate. Please, won't you help us?
Ibaraki-Douji: Nonsense. A human seeking help from an oni is the height of absurdity!
Mash: You're right, but...
Robin Hood: ... (Rustle, rustle)
Ibaraki-Douji: In the first place, I only came here for fun. I am what you could call a visitor from out of town, and yet you ask for my help to–Mmmpph!
Robin Hood: Whoops, silly me, throwing chocolate around like that! I was saving that for the kids in town...
Robin Hood: Although I suppose this works in a Japanese sense. Don't people there yell “Oni out, luck in!” while throwing food?
This is... choco... chocolate...! It's sweet as hell... and sweet as hell to boot!
Dr. Roman: This oni here isn't good at expressing herself.
Ibaraki-Douji: But it won't work. Just a measly piece of chocolate won't work on me at all! It won't work...!
Nitocris: She's gritting her teeth through a torrent of tears... Her lament is making me choke up...
Ibaraki-Douji: Yaaa! What's wrong, good man in green!? Aren't you going to attack me more!? Come on, come on!
Ibaraki-Douji: Like the time at Rashomon! Just like at Rashomon!
Robin Hood: Well, I wish I could give you more, but...
Robin Hood: Uh-oh, something's coming. This is no time to be throwing chocolate around.
Hahahahaha, this infuriates me even more! Scum! Get out of here. I'll rip you from limb to limb!
Mash: M-Moving to battle formation! Whenever you're ready, Master!
Ibaraki-Douji: Green man! Green good tidings, green pilgrim, green hermit, green geezer!
Ibaraki-Douji: As you can see, the pests are gone! So come on! Pretend it's Setsubun and throw me some sweets!
Robin Hood: All right, all right. I suppose you deserve it. But call me a geezer again and you can kiss chocolate goodbye.
Ibaraki-Douji: Mmm. Understood. I'm clever in that area. But... Mmm. Mmm-mmm-mmm.
Ibaraki-Douji: We got rid of those enemies as quickly as the chocolates melting in my mouth.
Ibaraki-Douji: Even this delicious chocolate isn't enough to keep me here. This place isn't worthy anymore! You heard me!
Ibaraki-Douji: Farewell! Farewell!
Robin Hood: Oh really? I was going to say... If you can defeat the queen living in that pyramid, you'll have all the sweets you can eat. Too bad.
Ibaraki-Douji: I knew that pyramid was trouble. When do we leave?
Fujimaru 1: Ibaraki...
Dr. Roman: Hmm. She's an unexpected addition to our party, but Ibaraki-Douji's strength is the real deal. Besides...
Mash: Besides what, Doctor?
Dr. Roman: I think it's a good thing she's showing an interest in human culture.
Dr. Roman: Even if her underlying aggression towards humans can't be changed, having a favorite food in common with us is a positive thing.
Mash: Yes, certainly. I think that leads to mutual understanding.
Dr. Roman: Yeah. So, Fujimaru, I know it'll be tough, but please look after her.
Fujimaru 1: Sure, I'll do my best!
Fujimaru 2: She's perfectly tame now.
Ibaraki-Douji: So where do we go from here?
Elisabeth: Next is... the Lava Zone! ...But why is there lava...?
Mash: L-Let's just go. We won't know until we see it for ourselves...!
IT'S SO HOT!
Section 6: "Mother's Love and Lover's Passion Are as Barren as a Lava Plain"
Elisabeth: It's hot! So hooooooot!
Elisabeth: Yow! Magma! Magma splashed on me! Hot!
Mash: A-Are you okay!?
Mash: Behind my shield!? U-Understood!
Mash: You too, Master! It's dangerous here, so please hide behind my shield!
Nitocris: S-Sorry, but me too, please! With my thighs exposed like this...!
Mash: W-We're like sardines in a can!
Fujimaru 1: Robin, you too! Over here!
Robin Hood: Thanks for the offer. Your consideration is all I need. I've got this hood to protect me, so I'll make it through.
Robin Hood: When you're on an adventurous journey, countermeasures against heat are a must. Though I have to say lava was unexpected.
Fujimaru 2: Baki, you too! Over here!
Ibaraki-Douji: Hahaha, unnecessary! It'll take more than this kind of heat to injure an oni's skin!
Ibaraki-Douji: I'm fine here. Use the space to protect your weak bodies instead.
Elisabeth: Argh, this... Move over a little, Nitocris!
Nitocris: No way! If my body pokes out any more, my thigh will... My thigh will...!
It's so hoooooooot!
Robin Hood: This is bad. Hey, we've got some enemies.
Elisabeth: Enemies? There are enemies here...?
Elisabeth: What's that queen thinking!? Here! In the Lava Zone! Why!? Why would she put enemies here!?
Elisabeth: This is the only path that leads to the pyramid! Why is there lava here anyway!?
Elisabeth: Do they use this path themselves to get to town!? Are they stupid? Are they morons!?
Dr. Roman: ...It seems the excessive stress has... temporarily enhanced her intelligence...
Mash: I understand your frustration, but now's not the time! Get ready to fight!
Elisabeth: I'll kill whoever thought of this map!
Elisabeth: (Panting) I-I did it... I sure did it...
Mash: N-Now then, let's keep moving!
Fujimaru 1: ...
Mash: What's wrong, Master? You're not looking too well...
Nitocris: Not too well? More like you look ghastly. Though honestly, it's my type of color.
Robin Hood: You may be ill. Maybe your body's out of whack coming from the freezing cold into the scorching heat.
Fujimaru 1: No... I'm getting chills for no reason...
Dr. Roman: Fujimaru!? Your brain waves are getting highly unstable!
Dr. Roman: Is there something abnormal in the area? Maybe there's a statue or book that affects your mental state with just a glance!?
Mash: This is the Lava Zone! Nothing like that can be found here!
Elisabeth: It's okay, [♂ Puppy /♀ Deerlet]. With the five of us, it won't matter who we're facing.
Elisabeth: Mash is the drum-defense, Nitocris the bass-support. Green is a manager-backup, while Ibaraki and I will be the leads.
Mash: I agree... I think it's a good, well-balanced team.
Dr. Roman: That's the spirit!
Dr. Roman: There seem to be some Servants waiting, but I'm sure it will be okay with this party.
Elisabeth: C'mon, we're almost at the end of this Lava Zone! There's nothing left to fear!
Minamoto-no-Raikou: ...Oh my.
Fujimaru 1: I'm going home!
Dr. Roman: The three Servants who Fujimaru keeps calling a “danger beyond all dangers”!
Mash: ...Also known as the Always-Sneaking-Into-Master's-Bed Trio!
Robin Hood: Nah, let's face it. They're monsters.
Minamoto-no-Raikou: Oh? Oh my, my, my?
Minamoto-no-Raikou: Everyone, did you hear that child's voice just now?
Ibaraki-Douji: Oh crap, Minamoto-no-Raikou!?
Serenity: Indeed I did. I think I just heard “I love you!”
Kiyohime: Yes, I'm sure that was towards me.
Serenity: ... (Giggle)
Kiyohime: ...Hee hee.
Robin Hood: (...G-Got my No Face May King out in the nick of time...)
Mash: (Master...! S-Senpai, are you okay? Deep breaths, deep breaths. We're fine. They haven't found us.)
Elisabeth: (Hey, why do we need to hide? We have to defeat them to get through, right?)
Nitocris: (Shh! Just keep silent, Elisabeth. I can spiritually feel it.)
Nitocris: (You may be the root of all negative energy for mankind, but those three are the root of all negative energy for the entire universe...)
Nitocris: (In other words, they are like black holes...!)
Ibaraki-Douji: (That is correct... You've got a pretty sharp eye there... Minamoto-no-Raikou is especially bad. That woman doesn't have a hitbox!)
Kiyohime: Hmm... How odd. I can smell Fujimaru after all.
Robin Hood: (Smell? What's up with that Servant...!?)
Kiyohime: (Sniff, sniff) Yooooo-hooooo! Fujimaru, are you heeeeeere?
Fujimaru 1: Eeeeek!
Mash: (It's okay, it's okay! Calm down, Master!)
Robin Hood: (How traumatized are you...!?)
Fujimaru 2: (Trembling)
Ibaraki-Douji: (You there, are you all right? You've started shaking like jelly...)
Mash: (This may take a while, but let's keep still... They'll eventually leave...)
Elisabeth: (But we're still in the Lava Zone, so it's unbearably hot!)
Mash: (Would you rather fight those three!?)
Elisabeth: (...Well... that's...)
Kiyohime: Hmmm... Around here somewhere... Fujimaru, where aaaaare yoooouuu?
Minamoto-no-Raikou: Playing hide-and-seek, are you? Do you two know a surefire way to win?
Minamoto-no-Raikou: “Vengeful Lightning of the Ox-King”!
Mash: (What the...!?)
Minamoto-no-Raikou: You just go and incinerate places that look like good hiding spots.
Both: I seeee.
Robin Hood: (...Why on earth are you contracted to someone like that?)
Nitocris: (...Fujimaru, this may sound obtrusive, but now may be the time to make up your mind.)
Fujimaru 1: Let's fight...!
Mash: (Y-Yes! Understood, Master!)
Fujimaru 2: Let's do our best...!
Nitocris: (I can tell you are mustering up all the courage you have... Now that's what I call an ally!)
Serenity: ...Found you...
Elisabeth: Sorry, but we need to get past. And no, we're not letting you have [♂ Puppy /♀ Deerlet]!
Minamoto-no-Raikou: We will let you through if you just hand over the child though...
Elisabeth: ...! I said no!
Robin Hood: I saw her hesitate...
Fujimaru 1: Elly!?
Elisabeth: It's okay, [♂ Puppy /♀ Deerlet]! Don't worry!
Ibaraki-Douji: ...Hey, you foreigner.
Nitocris: Um, me?
Ibaraki-Douji: Mm-hmm. There's something I want you to do with your skills...
Minamoto-no-Raikou: Then we have no choice. Let us squash the gypsy moth and take back our beloved child.
Elisabeth: Gypsy moth? Who are you talking about?
Mash: ...Probably you...
Elisabeth: Hmm, I see. ...Did you just call me a moth!?
Minamoto-no-Raikou: Yes, a moth. See, you have antennae.
Minamoto-no-Raikou: Plus you're an eyesore. All those unnecessarily bright colors.
Elisabeth: Hehehehe. Hahahaha.
Elisabeth: All right, you're dead. I was never afraid of thunder to begin with. Don't you underestimate the thunder of János Hill!
Kiyohime: Hehehehe. I'm usually a very lenient person, but...
Kiyohime: But with this “Elly” individual I feel... some sort of destined rivalry.
Serenity: ...Um, I would be happy if I could just sneak into Master's bed...
Mash: That's a no! Rejected!
Elisabeth: Don't worry, [♂ Puppy /♀ Deerlet]!
Elisabeth: Crimson Hero Elisabeth shall protect you from this sinister, good-for-nothing trio!
All Three: ...
Ibaraki-Douji: ...Is she a genius at rubbing people the wrong way?
Nitocris: She is an innate airhead...
Elisabeth: Now, bring it on!
Elisabeth: Hey, whoa! Why are they so persistent!?
Elisabeth: They come back no matter how many times we defeat them! They're like zombies... It's scary!
Kiyohime: Who are you calling a zombie? Only one thing keeps this body moving, and that's love!
Minamoto-no-Raikou: There's nothing stronger than a mother's love. Nothing in this whole world!
Serenity: ...As I said before, I only want Master to touch me a little.
Serenity: Like, my head or cheek...
Mash: We can't keep this up...
Ibaraki-Douji: Alright, now!
Ibaraki-Douji: Go, Sogen-bi! “Great Grudge of Rashomon”!
Minamoto-no-Raikou: Cursed pest...!
Kiyohime: Flailing about is useless!
Kiyohime: To the three of us who are used to being around lava, your attack was like a gust of refreshing wind!
Kiyohime: ...Wait, h-huh? Master...? Where did Master go?
Minamoto-no-Raikou: There, over there. ...Oh no, don't go that way!
Minamoto-no-Raikou: That's hot lava! Wait right there, Mother is coming to save you!
Kiyohime: Oh! I shall not fall behind!
Kiyohime: Please wait for me, Master!
Serenity: Huh? Oh, um...
Serenity: Then me too—
Ibaraki-Douji: Okay, now's our chance!
Mash: Ibaraki-Douji, what did you do?
Ibaraki-Douji: Ah, I asked Nitocris to make a Master decoy doll using her magecraft.
Nitocris: I had the mummies make it while we fought, but I didn't think it would work...
Ibaraki-Douji: They do say love is blind. Heh heh! I can't believe Raikou actually fell for it!
Ibaraki-Douji: Keheh, foolish fools! They'll fall into the hot lava and—
Dr. Roman: Think again! All three of them are alive and swimming merrily through it! Let's run while we can!
Ibaraki-Douji: No way!?
Fujimaru 1: Run for your life!!
Mash: Y-Yes! Everyone, let's hurry!!
Ibaraki-Douji: They're not even oni! How can they jump into boiling lava and still survive!?
Mash: It's probably the power of love!
Ibaraki-Douji: Love? Love is scary!
Section 7: "One More Chance"
Elisabeth: We've finally made it here...
Elisabeth: Come on, everyone, let's take out that witch in her pyramid!
Fujimaru 1: Yeah!
Elisabeth: Good answer, my little [♂ Puppy /♀ Deerlet]!
Fujimaru 2: We'll do our best.
Elisabeth: That's what the nobility say when they don't actually want to do something!
Dr. Roman: I'm seeing something ahead that looks like a Servant, so be careful.
Elisabeth: I'm not scared, no matter who it is!
Elisabeth: The journey of the Heroic Idol Elly won't end until I defeat that queen!
Elisabeth: Now everybody, charge!
Ibaraki-Douji: You've got fighting spirit, but not much else... I'm tired. I can't go full power all day like Shuten.
Ibaraki-Douji: Green man, give me some caloric fuel. I want another chocolate.
Robin Hood: Right, right. Take that, oni.
Ibaraki-Douji: Fwahaha! Your pitiful attacks cannot harm me! I am invincible! (Chomp chomp)
Nitocris: Anyway, I'm feeling dirty from all this running around.
Nitocris: Fujimaru, you're a Master, can't you conjure up a bathing area or two with your magecraft?
Mash: I don't think that's possible... Oh, I do have towels, though.
Nitocris: Alright, I'll take one. ...Hmm. It's a little rough to the touch.
Nitocris: Hand me an Egyptian silk one instead. What? You don't have any?
Nitocris: Very well. Prepare one in the castle as soon as this battle is over.
Nitocris: Of course, a place to bathe as well.
YOU GUYS AREN'T TAKING THIS SERIOUSLY AT ALL!
Elisabeth: Come on, guys! Can't you get a little more excited?
Elisabeth: Come on, shout in unison with me, the hero!
Robin Hood: Sure. After we win.
ARGH! Fine! Forget it!
Elisabeth: Come on, who's our next opponent!? Someone else from the Round Table? Bring it!
Mash: Huh? Uncle... Vlad III!?
Mash: Huh? But he seems a little different than the person I know...
Vlad III: Of course I am.
Vlad III: A Servant is summoned by extracting a single aspect of a hero.
Vlad III: I am not here as King Vlad III. I am here as the warrior who punishes all evil.
Elisabeth: Um, Uncle Vlad? ...Why are you glaring at me... Is something the matter?
Vlad III: Elisabeth Báthory! I have come to judge you for your sins!
Elisabeth: H-Huh!? You have!?
Vlad III: Save your breath!
Vlad III: Your existence is sinful... And now you shall be punished for your immorality and wickedness!
Dr. Roman: Jeez... Count Vlad normally only gets mad when people call him a vampire, but look at him now!
Dr. Roman: ...Oh, never mind. This is the warrior Vlad–no wonder his anger threshold is so low!
Dr. Roman: A-Anyway, prepare for combat!
Mash: Elisabeth! Let's just fight for now!
Elisabeth: Um, okay... Y-Yeah, you're right! We have to fight...!
Mash: Got him... No! We didn't! Master, we're continuing the battle!
Vlad III: —No, we're done. As I thought, thou does not understand.
Vlad III: ...Start over from the beginning once more. Otherwise, thou shall never be able to stand before that Queen.
Vlad III: If thy wish to call thyself a hero and wear that armor, thy must first understand!
Elisabeth: Understand what—Huh?
???: I'm sorry... I'm sorry this is so sudden...
Mash: Um... Uh...What!?
???: I'm really sorry, but...
???: I regret to make you do this after all the battles you've fought, but—
???: I want you to start over from the graveyard.
???: This isn't some kind of system issue. There's a reason for it...
???: Fujimaru, I want you to consider as a trial...
???: Alright— I'm sorry, but I'm going to teleport you.
Section 8: "New Game Plus"
Elisabeth: ...We've come back...
Mash: Ignoring the fact that there's a giant Siegfried floating in the night sky...
Mash: What could it be that Elisabeth doesn't understand?
Ibaraki-Douji: Green man, you seem to have some idea.
Robin Hood: Huh?
Ibaraki-Douji: Haha. Don't play dumb.
Ibaraki-Douji: You were the only one who had a knowing look on your face.
Robin Hood: Oh, yeah... Probably.
Elisabeth: What? What is it!? What don't I understand?
Robin Hood: ...Didn't you notice something about the town?
Elisabeth: The town...? Hmm... Oh, now that you mention it...
Elisabeth: Nobody was preparing for Halloween. Everyone was locked up in their houses.
Mash: Isn't that because the queen in that pyramid banned all the festivities?
Robin Hood: No.
Robin Hood: The lack of activity was apparent long before she even came.
Robin Hood: Let me fill you in.
Robin Hood: You were so busy getting excited for Halloween that you left all your administrative duties in the lurch!
Robin Hood: Don't “Oh” me!
Robin Hood: And because you were doing nothing as leader, the townspeople didn't know if it was okay to get ready for the festival or not!
Robin Hood: Neither did your soldiers! They couldn't decide whether to go forward with the preparations or whether to stop them!
Robin Hood: You were the only one who was getting excited for Halloween, basically!
Nitocris: Th-That's really bad...
Elisabeth: ...That's... So that's it...
Ibaraki-Douji: So you alone got so swept up in Halloween fever that you forgot to order preparations to begin?
Ibaraki-Douji: I'm in shock. How can you be a ruler if you don't care for your people?
Ibaraki-Douji: A ruler must first ensure that their subordinates' bellies are full. Only then can the ruler eat. (Chomp chomp)
Elisabeth: B-But I was really busy preparing for the concert...
Mash: ...There's really no excuse for what you've done...
Elisabeth: Ugh... Wh-What should I do, [♂ Puppy /♀ Deerlet]? Uncle Vlad was really mad!
Fujimaru 1: Let's go get another scolding.
Mash: Elisabeth, I understand how you feel, but...
Mash: We need to go back towards that gate to see the queen anyway...
Elisabeth: But Uncle Vlad's going to get mad again...
Nitocris: We can't do anything about that. But there's one way to apologize...
Nitocris: You need to make the festival a success.
Fujimaru 2: Let's make it the best Halloween ever.
Elisabeth: The best ever...? But how?
Robin Hood: ...Well, all you have to do is tell the townspeople that Halloween's begun.
Mash: That's right, Elisabeth! Let's start Halloween properly!
Elisabeth: Y-You're right! But how...?
Robin Hood: Hand out pumpkins, throw sweets, and have the little brats get their costumes ready.
Robin Hood: And then get rid of the wandering ghosts drawn to the festivities.
Elisabeth: ...G-Got it!
Ibaraki-Douji: Humph. Then make the announcement.
Ibaraki-Douji: Make the announcement. Tell everyone that the festival you promised them, the one with overflowing sweets, is set to begin.
Ibaraki-Douji: As a leader, you must be capable of such a proclamation. Especially given how loud you are usually.
Elisabeth: ...You're right. I can't just lip-synch along with some recording through a mic. My pride won't allow it.
Elisabeth: ...Here I go!
Elisabeth: This is Elisabeth Báthory, the ruler of Castle Csejte!
Elisabeth: I'm sorry I'm laaaaaate! But I have an announcement!
Elisabeth: ...Let the Halloween festivities commence!
Dr. Roman: Be careful! Elisabeth's proclamation made the dead burst from the ground!
Ibaraki-Douji: Haha! As I expected, your words made the dead scream in terror!
Ibaraki-Douji: It's time for this Halloween thing to begin! Come, Master!
Nitocris: I'm seeing lots of pumpkinheads! Let's smash them all!
Elisabeth: Master! I'll do my best!
Elisabeth: This time, I will do Halloween right!
Mash: We got a lot of pumpkins...
Nitocris: Let's give them to the people. This should get Halloween off to a good start.
Elisabeth: That's right. You gotta start with a strong opening act!
Section 9: "Halloween Declaration"
Mash: The townspeople still aren't celebrating Halloween. I'm not sure, but they don't seem very happy.
Elisabeth: Then let's start by making the place Halloween central! Right, [♂ Puppy /♀ Deerlet]?
Fujimaru 1: How?
Elisabeth: Huh!? Well, um...
Elisabeth: ...Once I decide something, shouldn't it just kind of happen?
Robin Hood: No, it shouldn't! Do you think you're some kind of spoiled princess?
Nitocris: We can't do it alone. Let's ask the townspeople for help.
Fujimaru 2: Let's all do it!
Robin Hood: Yeah. I'm with you.
Robin Hood: We won't get anywhere unless we ask the townspeople.
Elisabeth: ...R-Right! Time to order the pigs around!
Robin Hood: Nobody likes being called a pig. Explain to them what's going on properly. Come on, you're the ruler.
Elisabeth: What? But my fans love it!
Elisabeth: Even that Cock Robin chirped with joy! As its owner, that means you'd love it if I called you a pig too, right?
Robin Hood: I've got nothing to do with that fat thing! It just follows me everywhere!
Nitocris: Elisabeth, you mustn't assume all humans are the same.
Nitocris: If you want to make Halloween fun, then you must ask properly.
Robin Hood: Okay, let's split up and ask everyone we come across.
Robin Hood: We can hand out the pumpkins at the same time.
Nitocris: You're right. Let's reconvene here in two hours.
Robin Hood: Okay, see you then!
Elisabeth: Huh? Wait, where do I go?
Fujimaru 1: Follow me.
Mash: Elisabeth, come with us.
Mash: (We wouldn't want her to say things in a weird way and cause trouble...)
Ibaraki-Douji: Alright, I'll sit this one out. I'll be waiting here! (Chomp chomp)
Mash: Looks like we're all here.
Mash: We didn't have any luck... Master, this is depressing...
Nitocris: You too? ...Robin Hood, what about you?
Robin Hood: No good. Zilch.
Robin Hood: Still, people did seem to be looking forward to the festivities.
Mash: Oh, yes. I agree.
Mash: I don't think they were against Halloween per se, but they were not particularly open about any support either.
Elisabeth: Grrr... Unforgivable! Halloween's a festival kids and adults can both enjoy, and yet...
Nitocris: It seems that Elisabeth does not have enough respect as a ruler.
Nitocris: Add that to the fact that the queen in the pyramid banned Halloween and it's no wonder they're not on board.
Nitocris: ...Sheesh. What kind of queen would do that to a pyramid, anyway?
Elisabeth: Hey, what is it about me that's wrong?
H：All: The outfit (probably).
BUT I AM A HERO!
Queen's Knight: Halloween has been banned by— Oh, not you people again!?
Elisabeth: Oh, I know! Hey, you there!
Elisabeth: What do you think when you look at me?
Queen's Knight: What do I think?
Queen's Knight: You should hold back on showing your skin. It'll hurt if you get slashed.
Elisabeth: Zero fashion sense!
Mash: ...That sound... Oh no!
Ibaraki-Douji: Hmm? More commotion? Well, it has nothing to do with me.
Ibaraki-Douji: I've got this chocolate cake that the townspeople gave me to consume instead!
Ibaraki-Douji: Heh, heheheh... It feels like a waste to even eat it... Where should my first bite be?
Ibaraki-Douji: Gee... It looks good no matter where you begin... Aww... Heheh. You adorable little thing...
Ibaraki-Douji: I think I should take little nibbles from the side and—
Ibaraki-Douji: HEY! WHAT GIVES!?
???: Oh, how sad...
???: It saddens me that the queen does not wish to see the town stained in the orange of Halloween...
Robin Hood: Huh? What's with this pretty boy?
Tristan: I am Tristan... Former Knight of the Round Table. Currently a Queen's Knight.
Tristan: Call me Tristan the Tragic... Or perhaps Tristan Who Sighs And Looks Out Upon the Setting Sun...
Robin Hood: Way too long!
???: You're an Archer. You needn't go out ahead—
Mash: Here's one more!
Mash: What the... Where's he going!?
Elisabeth: Huh? What was that?
Tristan: Wait! Where are you—
Mysterious Black Knight: ...AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHH!
Mash: New enemy approaching, for sure this time!
Tristan: What's wrong, Lanc—
Mysterious Black Knight: SHUUUTTTTTT UPPPPPPPP!!!
Tristan: Eh...!? Why the sudden sleeper hold!?
Tristan: I give up! I give up! I give up! I'm tapping out! I'm tapping out!
Mash: They've started fighting each other! Master, let's take them out now!
Mash: ...Um, I don't really understand why...
Mash: ...but my body is telling me that black knight needs to get mashed up...
Mash: ...just like Gawain's potato dishes!
Fujimaru 1: Get him, Masherker!
Mash: Right! Prepare to die!
Fujimaru 2: D-Deep breaths!
Mash: R-Right! Mash Kyrielight, taking deep breaths!
Mash: In... Out... In... Out... In... Out... In... Out...
Mash: ...Okay, ready to crush him!
Elisabeth: She's too pumped up!
Tristan: It's the enemy! Th-The enemy's here! The enemy!
Mysterious Black Knight: ENEMYYYYYYYYY!
Mysterious Black Knight: LOSERRRRRRRRRRRRR!!
Tristan: We lost... How sad...
Queen's Knight: Sir Tristan and Sir Lan– I mean, the Mysterious Black Knight have been defeated!
Elisabeth: Anyway! This town is going to celebrate Halloween! I won't allow any complaints!
Elisabeth: That goes for you guys too. Here, wear these and go celebrate!
Queen's Knight: A jack-o'-lantern? Uh, wait, let me at least remove my helm—
Elisabeth: Save it.
Nitocris: Those knights ran away crying...
Robin Hood: Probably because you cursed those pumpkins with your Egyptian magecraft or what have you. They'll never come off now.
Elisabeth: Thank you, Nitocris!
Nitocris: ...Well, it is Halloween after all. Anyway, Elisabeth.
Nitocris: Now the townspeople can prepare for the festivities without having to be afraid of the queen.
Elisabeth: That's true! Okay, everyone! We drove all the knights away!
Elisabeth: Feel safe to openly celebrate Halloween!
Mysterious Black Knight: GOOOOOOOOOD...
Tristan: You seem quite happy, considering we lost...
Tristan: Still, I'm glad too.
Tristan: She matures fast... I was so sure it would've taken at least ten years...
Mysterious Black Knight: QUEEEEEEEEEEEN!
Tristan: Yes. Now she has won the right to face the queen.
Tristan: Now it's a question of whether or not she can surpass her. This is something we must see with our own eyes.
Mysterious Black Knight: ESCAAAAAAAAAAAPE!
Tristan: Yes, let's take flight. Quietly now.
Robin Hood: Hey, they're fleeing!
Nitocris: How rude...!
Nitocris: The vanquished should hang their heads and await punishment!
Nitocris: Surround them, Medjed!
Tristan: How sad... But naturally, a knight never gives up! Not until he draws his last breath!
Tristan: The game is not over until the whistle blows...!
Mysterious Black Knight: WINNERRRRRRRRRRR!
Tristan: Now, let us escape!
Ibaraki-Douji: ...So, it was you.
Tristan: Step aside, young one. You're clearly not one of us.
Tristan: As you can see, I am the embodiment of chivalrous ideals, dreams, and realities. I would never lay a hand on a woman.
Tristan: That holds true even for non-humans like you. In fact, if you were a decade or so older, I would have liked to have dinner with you.
Tristan: ...However, given the murderous look on your face, I shall use an Evade skill on myself. Just to be safe.
Ibaraki-Douji: That wind-cutting bow of yours... So you're the scumbag responsible!
Ibaraki-Douji: “Great Grudge of Rashomon”!
Tristan: Oh my...! A Noble Phantasm that removes buffs... How awful!
Ibaraki-Douji: Here's another one for you!
Ibaraki-Douji: Go, Sogen-bi! You're going to pay for what you did to my cake!
Ibaraki-Douji: “Great Grudge of Rashomon”! Raaarrrrgh!
Tristan: Two in a row! How... agile...
Mysterious Black Knight: STUUUUUPIIIIIIIID!!
Ibaraki-Douji: Hm, not good. I should have sent them flying the opposite way.
Nitocris: They went flying towards the pyramid. ...It's like we set them free ourselves.
Ibaraki-Douji: Th-Things like that happen in battle, you know. It's not my fault!
Fujimaru 1: (In Shuten's ASMR voice) Oh, but it is.
Ibaraki-Douji: Eeeeeek! Shuten!? Shuten, I–Why yooou...!!
Mash: Amazing, Master. That impression was not good at all, but it had an intensity to it.
Fujimaru 2: (In Shuten's ASMR voice) All your fault, Ibaraki. How sad...
Ibaraki-Douji: Nyafu!? ...Huh, Shuten? No? Where'd she go?
Ibaraki-Douji: ...Why you...! What trickery is this!?
Mash: There, there, Ibaraki. Calm down.
Elisabeth: Anyway, this town has been liberated!
Elisabeth: Even if the queen tries to stop the festivities, there's no way they ever will!
Elisabeth: Ahh, the world is filled with the happiness of Halloween...! It makes me want to burst out singing!
Robin Hood: Let's not do that. We'll just get sent back to the starting point again.
Elisabeth: Why's that!?
Mash: ...Oh? The children...
H：Child: Yayyy, trick or treat!
Mash: Oh, m-me!? I'm sorry... I don't have any candy...
H：Child: Then trick it is!
Fujimaru 1: Yes, trick!
Mash: Master, you too!?
Mash: Fou just gave them the sesame buns that the doctor was hiding!
H：Child: Yay, sweets!
Mash: ...Phew. You saved me, Fou.
Fou: Fou fou.
Ibaraki-Douji: Hrmm, hrmm. (Om nom nom)
Ibaraki-Douji: Hey, it's not enough. And I'm tired of this flavor already.
Ibaraki-Douji: I want something a little more like confectionery!
Mash: Oh, I'm sorry. How about these macarons then...?
Ibaraki-Douji: What are these? They look great! Such vibrant colors!
Ibaraki-Douji: And this texture... They're soft, but solid enough to be broken apart... Ah! They're all mushy inside!
Ibaraki-Douji: Oh, wait. What's this? They have different flavors and colors!? Matcha! Chestnut! Strawberry! Pistachio!
Ibaraki-Douji: It's like a kaleidoscope of sweets!
Dr. Roman: Yeah, kids love macarons... No wonder they hit the spot for Ibaraki-Douji...
H：Child: Halloween's so fun!
H：Mother: Yes it is, very fun.
H：Father: Look, it's a pumpkin monster!
Mash: It's finally starting to feel like Halloween. Right, Master?
Fujimaru 1: This is how it should be.
Nitocris: To properly hold and run a festival is also the job of a pharaoh.
Nitocris: I hope that child begins to understand that soon.
Fujimaru 2: Halloween sure is fun.
Robin Hood: Well, people need to take breaks at times. Although as a person coming from the forest, I hate rowdy places.
Ibaraki-Douji: You say that, but I know you're secretly handing out candy to the kids.
Robin Hood: What!? But I never sensed your eyes on me!
Ibaraki-Douji: Kahahaha, I disguised myself as a child and received some too!
Robin Hood: Have you no shame...?
Ibaraki-Douji: Humph, call me clever, you spineless candyman. I just have a different sense of pride, that is all.
Elisabeth: Now let's go pay the queen a visit! My concert will—No, never mind. The concert is also important, but...
Elisabeth: But most of all, in order for everyone to enjoy Halloween, we need to take her out!
Mash: I kind of understand what you're trying to say, Fou.
Mash: Even as a Heroic Spirit stopped in time, one can still understand and learn something new.
Nitocris: ...That is true.
Nitocris: Even if it is like a single night's dream, the experience will not have been in vain.
Nitocris: Mash Kyrielight.
Nitocris: ...I'm sorry, it's nothing. It doesn't seem like you need my words of advice.
Nitocris: Now, let us go. And let us face that gatekeeper once more.
Elisabeth: ...By the way, maybe one song wouldn't hurt before we go...?
H：All: ABSOLUTELY NOT!
Section 10: "Pumpkin Harvest! Part 1"
Elisabeth: There's another pumpkin here! It's harvesting time!
Mash: Can you really call it harvesting if it's just taking pumpkins off their heads?
Section 11: "Pumpkin Harvest! Part 2"
Nitocris: There's even pumpkins in my cave...! Let's slay them right away.
Nitocris: My apologies, Elisabeth, but this cave does not need any Halloween decorations!
Nitocris: The reason is... Yes, the reason is...
Nitocris: ...jack-o'-lanterns have too much overlap with the Medjed design!
Elisabeth: All right, that'll do for today. We'll harvest more pumpkins tomorrow!
Section 12: "Pumpkin Harvest! Part 3"
Elisabeth: It's freezing, so run through as fast you can!
Ibaraki-Douji: Right. I love the feeling of a cold piece of chocolate melting in my mouth, but it's so cold my teeth will break over it!
Section 13: "Pumpkin Harvest! Part 4"
Mash: ...It seems those three aren't here.
Fujimaru 1: Let's hurry!
Ibaraki-Douji: R-Right. I don't know what they'll do now that they figured out they were tricked, and I don't want to know!
Section 14: "Let's Sing a Song"
Elisabeth: ...Um, uh... Trick or treat, Uncle Vlad!
Vlad III: I can hear the festival... Did you yourself realize why I was angry, or did someone bring it to your attention?
Vlad III: If the former, then you show some promise.
Vlad III: If the latter, then they showed you sympathy.
Vlad III: The verdict looks only at the results. If the people were satisfied, then you have the right to proceed.
Elisabeth: Uncle Vlad!
Vlad III: However, in this form I am especially strict with you.
Vlad III: You have committed many sins...
Vlad III: One of which I, having become a Heroic Spirit, simply cannot ignore.
Vlad III: ...I won't say to atone for it with death. For there is no way to atone.
Vlad III: As a king, I demonstrate magnanimity while I suffer within. But as a warrior, I shall never show mercy toward wickedness.
Vlad III: You... Evil killer who committed depraved acts, toyed with the citizens, and thought it only natural to be ignorant...
Vlad III: Your sins are a nightmare from which no one can wake, even after 100 years. What you have done is committed a crime engraved in history.
Vlad III: It is time you return to the darkness where no one can venture. I shall slaughter every last one of you.
Vlad III: ...I would have never thought my skill with a lance would come up short against a fictional creature–a vampire.
Vlad III: I must be the one who is unworthy.
Elisabeth: U-Um... Uncle Vlad?
Vlad III: You have no right to call me that. You should refer to me as “uncle” when I'm summoned as king.
Vlad III: I told you before. Each different aspect of a particular hero manifests as its own distinct Servant.
Vlad III: Like what has happened with me here, now.
Elisabeth: But, but even so... you're still Uncle Vlad.
Elisabeth: ...Even though you may hate me.
Elisabeth: Even though I may have done things that are unforgivable.
Vlad III: You have indeed. You committed a sin... though the world may not consider it that way.
Vlad III: That sin is not even engraved upon your Spirit Origin. After all, that world has been forgotten.
Vlad III: ...But I shall never forget.
Vlad III: You denied the final integrity of my light, my wife, my love.
Vlad III: For her sake, I will not forgive you. Even if she herself may have...
Robin Hood: ...I see. I somewhat recall it too. Man, humanity being in a state of flux is a nuisance.
Robin Hood: That Vlad III and Elisabeth had a bit of a history together.
Robin Hood: This isn't about who's right and who's wrong.
Robin Hood: The World isn't concerned by human values like virtue. It will just adopt whatever means are useful to guarantee the continuation of its existence.
Robin Hood: Whether it's a young lady who tries to atone for her grave sins, even if she knows no shame...
Robin Hood: ...or the conviction of a gentleman who won't accept any kind of atonement, but just seeks to punish every evil act... The World considers them equally sinful.
Dr. Roman: ...Right. They're the same, so it will choose the one that's more effective–even someone evil, if it means preserving humanity.
Dr. Roman: If humanity's preservation isn't wished for, they won't be allowed to be summoned as a Heroic Spirit. Even if they stand for righteousness.
Dr. Roman: But if that's the case, it means even Vlad III wishes for the preservation of humanity.
Dr. Roman: After all, he was summoned as a Servant this time.
Ibaraki-Douji: ...I think you're right. I hate humans. I don't like them and I don't trust them.
Ibaraki-Douji: That being said, I have no intention of destroying their world. After all, humans are useful for a number of things.
Ibaraki-Douji: I exist because humans, my enemies, exist. In a world without humans, neither Shuten nor I would be summoned.
Ibaraki-Douji: Isn't that true, Red Horns? No matter how many sins you've committed...
Ibaraki-Douji: No one can reject your being here right now. As long as you don't wish for “nothingness,” you'll be a Heroic Spirit like the rest of us.
Ibaraki-Douji: Of course, as an Anti-Hero... A sacrifice whose role is to lose to the Heroic Spirits.
Elisabeth: ...You're right. Thanks, Ibaraki. I'm grateful.
Elisabeth: Now then... Sorry for making you wait, [♂ Puppy /♀ Deerlet]. Come! To the final battle with the queen!
Fujimaru 1: Yeah, let's go!
Elisabeth: Nice reaction! Thank you, Fujimaru!
Elisabeth: After we take the castle back, I'll let you help me prepare for my concert!
Mash: Ah, Master's face suddenly went pale.
Fujimaru 2: I'll follow you anywhere, Elly!
Elisabeth: Heh... It makes my heart flutter to be called a pet name by a fan...!
Elisabeth: All right, I'll specially reserve a front-row seat for you at my concert!
Dr. Roman: What's wrong!?
Dr. Roman: Fujimaru is displaying signs of being in an incredibly agitated mental state...!
???: Mmmm, don't tell me they really made it!? Were my countermeasures too flimsy!?
???: No, no, calm down. Calm down. Everyone makes mistakes. I'm no exception.
???: Rather, a beautiful queen is the only one allowed to make careless mistakes. Paradoxically, those mistakes are what make her a queen in the first place!
???: Yes, that's right. That proves I'm not at fault here. Therefore...
???: Rise, you useless loser knights! Next up is an all-out war.
???: The time has come to make it clear who's best suited to rule this land!
???: I too... have a wish, and to make it come true, I shall continue being the queen!
???: That is the agreement I made with that person!
Section 15: "Trick or Treat!"
Tristan: Welcome. Thank you for coming.
Elisabeth: Hey, it's the knights that ran away.
Tristan: That depends on how you look at it. Things must be observed from up high...
Tristan: This is called a “bird's-eye view.” It looked like I was about to lose, so I, Tristan the Sad, threw the match.
Tristan: In other words, by giving up on winning, I avoided defeat. I am a quick-witted man almost to the point of sadness...
Mash: That is certainly sad, in every sense of the word...
Mysterious Black Knight: FWWWWUUUUUUUUUU...
Mash: Master, I have a strange feeling about that black knight. Trying to whistle but not quite getting it and whatnot.
Mash: We should focus on taking them out right here... Or perhaps we could just have a nice, long chat...
Fujimaru 1: W-Will you be okay?
Mash: ...Yes. Either way, that black knight is our enemy.
Fujimaru 2: Mash, relax.
Mash: I'm fine. I'm calm right now! Now, let's fight!
Tristan: (Oh, how terrible... That seemingly gentle girl has the menacing look of an executioner.)
Tristan: (What did you do to make her hate you so much?)
Mysterious Black Knight: (I'm sorry... But I don't remember. I think it's some sort of misunderstanding. She'll calm down soon enough.)
Tristan: (Really...? So it's not dangerous? As in something that would end up involving me?)
Mysterious Black Knight: (N-No, it's nothing, probably.)
Tristan: Good to know. Ahem. Her Majesty awaits. This way, please.
Elisabeth: We finally get to see her... [♂ Puppy /♀ Deerlet], get psyched.
Elisabeth: Don't get fooled by her unorthodox attitude and appearance.
Elisabeth: Inside there's a nastiness boiling up like a poisonous stew!
Nitocris: Do you know her True Name?
Elisabeth: Nope, not at all!
Nitocris: ...Well, given that there's a pyramid, it must be someone who has something to do with me.
Nitocris: ...Let me double-check. She really is a queen, right?
Nitocris: Because I'll be forced to surrender if it turns out to be some extravagant man with eyes like the sun and a beautiful voice...
Elisabeth: Don't worry. She's a woman for sure. Just her true nature is different.
Elisabeth: I may be a dragon, but she's a snake–a fiercely venomous one at that!
C：???: I see you haven't learned anything from your two defeats. How dare you come here, you little lizard!
C：???: I fail to understand how you are so pathetic, but I shall praise you for surviving this hell twice!
C：???: But you are still merely a girl crazy about Halloween! To someone tempered by the hot desert sand like myself, you—
C：???: ...Am I seeing things? Is there one less of you? ...Wait. You look stronger than before!
Elisabeth: Heh, for you to notice that... That's some observation you got there.
Elisabeth: Yes, I was born once more through a Palingenesis-like process from the humiliation of having everything taken from me, and my own self-denial...
Elisabeth: I am the muscle-based idol that has become a Saber-class Servant, Elisabeth Báthory (Brave)!
Fujimaru 1: Oh I get it now...! (At last)
Robin Hood: That's right. Everyone just kept quiet.
Nitocris: Really? I honestly thought she was a salamander Heroic Spirit...
Elisabeth: I'm not a fire lizard! I'm a female hero! A noble heroine blessed by a dragon! Someone who never sings out of tune!
Fujimaru 2: You just came up with that on the spot, didn't you?
Elisabeth: ...Hehe. I've actually been thinking about it for a while, just didn't have a chance to say it.
C：???: Are you done yet? Eyes back on me!
C：???: Ahem. Anyway, you've done well to make your way here, heroes! I shall praise you for your spirit!
Fujimaru 1: So beautiful...!
C：???: Heh. I'm tired of hearing that, but thank you! It's good to be honest!
Fujimaru 2: ...!
C：???: Indeed. A beauty so great you would lose your words. That is I!
C：???: If you understand, then bow to the ground until you bang your head! I'll also allow you to take photos of me, this time only!
Tristan: Bow before Her Majesty. You're not going to listen to me anyway, but...
C：???: Don't just tell them without even meaning it, you dumb dodo! You do nothing but fail!
C：???: It's your own incompetence that has allowed them to come this far! As punishment, do a handstand over there!
C：???: But don't stop playing the harp!
Tristan: So sad... So backbreaking. But if Her Majesty commands it, I must obey.
Elisabeth: You can actually do it!?
Mysterious Black Knight: ...
C：???: It seems that the current situation is punishment enough for Sir Anonymous here. Very well, I will let him off the hook.
Mash: No, I think it's only fair that he gets punished too. Specifically, he has to take off his helmet or show us his face.
Mysterious Black Knight: ...!!!
Elisabeth: Umm... Mash...? You're acting kinda scary...
Mash: Sorry... When I look at that indecisive black knight, my heart becomes as jagged as a Saint Quartz...
C：???: So you get irritated. That was a nice way to put it.
C：???: I completely understand how you feel, but have your fight elsewhere.
C：???: It's a drag, but first I have my duty as a ruler.
C：???: Elisabeth Báthory, the fact that you've made it here means you finally understand, yes?
Elisabeth: I got too excited over the Halloween concert and neglected my duties as ruler.
Elisabeth: ...I was too immature to rule over the common pigs.
C：???: Yes, it is pure stupidity for those who stand on top to seek something other than being at the top!
C：???: To be served you need a reason to be served. Or you need fervor!
C：???: That reason may be that you're as beautiful as the heavens. It could be that you wield power, even though you're hideous.
Elisabeth: Oh, that stings... I'm as beautiful as the heavens, but I chose the life of an idol...
C：???: No, I'm the beautiful one. You're the powerful one.
C：???: You said it yourself just a second ago. You're the muscle-based idol, Lowland Gorilla Báthory.
Elisabeth: I didn't say that! Only the Báthory part is right!
C：???: Now that you mention it, you're right, but who cares about the small things! We're having an important discussion right now!
Elisabeth: That's my line! I've never had so much trouble talking to someone before!
Elisabeth: Just who are you?!
Elisabeth: You act like some sort of model, but what Heroic Spirit are you?!
C：???: Isn't it obvious? A queen who rules with beauty! Whose name is synonymous with beauty!
C：???: If you asked a hundred people who that queen is, they would all tell you my name!
C：???: Yes, my name! My beautiful name is...!
Fujimaru 1: Well, that'd be Cleopatra.
Fujimaru 2: Obviously, Cleopatra.
Elisabeth: Seriously?! You mean that Paris Fashion Week girl is Queen Cleopatra...!?
Cleopatra: Ohohohoho. Even a girl with the bare minimum of nobility like you knows my name.
Cleopatra: Then I shall ask again. Can you compete against my beauty?
Elisabeth: ...This is bad. When it comes to whose Heroic Spirit is more beautiful, she has the upper hand...
Elisabeth: No matter how you look at it, my style is more modern, but I can't beat her brand reputation...
Fujimaru 1: Modern?
Fujimaru 2: Style?
Elisabeth: What, are you saying my bikini armor is old-school!? It's totally modern! Right!?
Nitocris: Yes, I think that outfit is good. It would make perfect sense in Ancient Egypt.
Elisabeth: I know, right? Finally somebody from Egypt gets me!
Robin Hood: To me you both look the sa—No, never mind.
Robin Hood: But, well, in terms of looking dignified, the queen over there is on a different level. Her self-confidence has no limits.
Ibaraki-Douji: I don't know what to say. My standards of beauty are different from humans' to begin with.
Ibaraki-Douji: That being said... Hahahahaha!
Ibaraki-Douji: Master! Master! She has an ulterior motive, and a malicious one at that.
Ibaraki-Douji: Like she'll bite you or tear you up if you get close. Well, I guess for a demon, that's pretty beautiful!
Cleopatra: Hmm... You're not human, huh? Then it makes sense you can't understand me.
Cleopatra: And also...
Nitocris: Quiet, Cleopatra. I simply ended up on this side by chance this time.
Nitocris: I am just a normal Caster, a mage. You just need to live up to your beliefs without wavering.
Cleopatra: So, Elisabeth, let me ask you again. Do you intend to compete with my beauty?
Cleopatra: Ha...hahahaha! Ohohoho! No way, that would be impossible! That's not even a contest!
Cleopatra: If you're a woman, then you know there's nothing more terrifying than being judged based on your beauty!
Cleopatra: I am the world-renowned Cleopatra! That contest would only make you lose face...
Elisabeth: Huh? I can compete.
Cleopatra: ...What was that?
Elisabeth: It's true that if we're just talking how our bodies look, my physical age might put me at a very slight disadvantage...
Elisabeth: In any event, diversification is in right now. There are more standards of beauty now than there were in the past. Espeeeeecially...
Elisabeth: Yes! What about cuteness? I sing, dance, and smile for my pig fans!
Elisabeth: That's something only an idol like me can do! And something a queen, who is served on every day, cannot!
Cleopatra: In other words, you're not someone that rules over others...
Elisabeth: That's right! Your Majesty, I challenge you to a duel! As an idol!
Elisabeth: Oh, and of course I'll take up the reins of government. An idol can rule just fine.
Cleopatra: How dare you... How dare you... You have no idea how mad your proposal makes me...!
Cleopatra: Beauty is born from intelligence. Thus, ruling is carried out through beauty...!
Cleopatra: Ruling over the masses merely because you're “cute”... As a queen, I won't allow such happy-go-lucky attitudes!
Mash: (I kind of get why Cleopatra is mad...)
Robin Hood: (No, Elisabeth is just that selfish. After all, she's an Anti-Hero...someone who's been making mistakes her whole life.)
Elisabeth: I'm an idol, and the mistress of Castle Csejte!
Elisabeth: Servants get summoned as Lancers, Casters, and so on, right?
Elisabeth: Just like Uncle Vlad accepted me for who I am and didn't forgive me—
Elisabeth: I'm greedy, prideful, and selfish. That's why both versions of me are important!
Elisabeth: I won't give up on either one!
Cleopatra: So you're not going to give up...on either of you? This is why regional rulers are so annoying...!
Cleopatra: Very well, we'll see just how long you can keep that attitude. I'll test you!
Cleopatra: ...At the end of the day, you're just spouting nonsense! Drown in the beauty of Cleopatra...and die!
Tristan: ...Splendid. This is different than before. A complete defeat...
Tristan: Ha... Excellent. Truly excellent. A splended defeat is quite exhilarating.
Mysterious Black Knight: (I'm not sure about that... I feel like we fought for nothing...!)
Cleopatra: ...I can't believe it. I didn't think I would lose...
Elisabeth: The match is over! You're going to give me back Castle Csejte!
Elisabeth: And do something about this pyramid! Actually, don't bring this kind of stuff in here!
Cleopatra: ...That's... kind of difficult...
Cleopatra: ...Well, I'm not the one who brought this pyramid here.
Elisabeth: Then who dropped this annoying thing on my castle?!
G：???: IT WAS ME!
Elisabeth: Who are you!?
Nitocris: Th-That voice...!?
Nitocris: It can't be?! It couldn't, could it!?
Ozymandias: If you want to know who I am, I shall answer. I am Ozymandias, the king who rules the sun!!
Ozymandias: Hahahaha! Cleopatra! They've completely crushed you!
Cleopatra: H-How embarrassing! As someone who holds the name of pharaoh, I have fallen hard...!
Cleopatra: I cannot bear any additional embarrassment. Please sever my head!
Elisabeth: I don't want you making a bloody mess here! We're going to decorate for Halloween!
Ozymandias: Yes. Just as that thin girl over there says. We need to decorate this castle now.
Ozymandias: Your blood would ruin the festival. Your punishment will be to sit there and take your shame!
Cleopatra: Yes, Your Majesty!
Dr. Roman: Ozymandias... In other words, Ramesses II! To think someone so important would show up in this weird Singularity...!
Dr. Roman: It's like an adult showing up to a kid's event, you know!?
Ozymandias: Adults have fun, too. Grown-ups enjoy this kind of levity!
Ozymandias: But that's why you should not worry. I will not fight.
Ozymandias: Cleopatra was ruling over this pyramid, and was defeated by you.
Nitocris: I would have never thought Your Majesty... If you had given me word... I wouldn't have joined their side...
Ozymandias: Heh. Don't say that, Nitocris. I told Cleopatra to keep her mouth shut.
Nitocris: I-I'm not displeased at all! My apologies for slipping my tongue!
Elisabeth: ...Umm, I'm not really following what you guys are saying. Why are people from Egypt here?
Both: HOW DISRESPECTFUL!
Elisabeth: I can't help it! I don't know if I'm being disrespectful! I don't know what's going on!
Robin Hood: That's right. You guys really have no connection to this place whatsoever, so why are you here?
Ozymandias: Umph, No Face King of the Forest.
Ozymandias: ...Very well. It's no fun just seeing you all rack your brains.
Ozymandias: Then I shall ask you. Does anyone know the final moments of this woman, Cleopatra?
Mash: They say she committed suicide after her husband Antonius, general of the Roman army...
Mash: ...lost to Augustus in the naval battle of Actium and later died.
Ozymandias: That's right. The Ptolemaic Kingdom quickly collapsed and the country disappeared.
Ozymandias: Leaving her as the last pharaoh.
Ozymandias: And thus, she has avoided wishing for anything, and refused to be summoned as a Servant until now.
Mash: ...What do you mean?
Ozymandias: She has a personal desire.
Ozymandias: And it's something that won't come true unless she participates in a Holy Grail War as a Servant.
Ozymandias: But it's not a wish as a pharaoh. It's a selfish desire you could find anywhere on the streets.
Ozymandias: She feels so responsible for the destruction of her country that she has locked it away in her heart.
Ozymandias: Thinking that someone that has done what she did should not be allowed to have a wish!
Ozymandias: But I don't think it's something to be suffering over for a thousand or so years, so I gave her an opportunity.
Ozymandias: To rule this upside-down pyramid as queen...
Ozymandias: ...Until Halloween ends.
Ozymandias: And had she done that, I would have granted her wish with the Holy Grail I was given.
Mash: A Holy Grail...!?
Ozymandias: And then you lost. You have no objections. Right, Cleopatra?
Cleopatra: I realized that it's wrong for someone like me to hope for something.
Ozymandias: I see, and so you're going to suppress that wish and turn your back on it for the rest of eternity, then!?
Cleopatra: That is the least I can do to atone for destroying my country.
Ozymandias: Hahahahaha! Hahahahahahaha!! That's your answer!?
Ozymandias: Ridiculous! Anubis would be holding his belly laughing, I imagine! Did you hear that, thin girl?!
Elisabeth: I told you to call me Elisabeth! Or if you want to be more friendly, Elly is also good!
Ozymandias: Huh. I see. In that case, Elly, or whatever, if you have something to say, you should say it now!
Ozymandias: I appreciate that ridiculous arrogance of yours!
Mash: Did you just say Elly!?
Elisabeth: Then I'll say it.
Elisabeth: Umm... You know, Cleopatra... You're an...
Elisabeth: Aren't you?
Elisabeth: Didn't I tell you? That I would be both an idol and a ruler!?
Elisabeth: You can be a pha... pharaoh? and have a personal desire at the same time!
Elisabeth: Take part in a bunch of Holy Grail Wars, and do your best to get it granted!
Elisabeth: Why can't you do the things that I can do?
Elisabeth: You can do it right? I bet you could do it while you dance gracefully even.
Elisabeth: I don't want to say this, but...
Elisabeth: I got all excited about being an idol, I forgot about Halloween, so you might have ruled a bit... better, maybe.
Elisabeth: You can have your own personal desires!
Cleopatra: ...Are you sure... I don't know if I can—
Elisabeth: It's fine! You think so too, right [♂ Puppy /♀ Deerlet]?
Ozymandias: Humanity's final Master, Fujimaru! You look like you want to say something.
Ozymandias: It's fine! Finish her off! Don't hold back and tell her!
Fujimaru 1: You can be selfish.
Cleopatra: ...You're right. I've wanted to be, this entire time.
Fujimaru 2: You do you, Cleopatra.
Cleopatra: Be...myself... You're right.
Cleopatra: That's what I've been trying to be this whole time, but...
Cleopatra: At some point, all I could think about was being a pharaoh...
Cleopatra: Sun King, Ozymandias. Incarnation of Horus, Queen Nitocris.
Cleopatra: Please forgive me. From this day forth, I will accept myself for who I am, and not just be a pharaoh.
Nitocris: I forgive you. Become the strength needed for those that follow you. Act like the name you have carved into history.
Ozymandias: I too grant forgiveness. Have the name of Cleopatra shine brightly, arrogantly, and proudly!
Cleopatra: My name is Cleopatra VII. A former pharaoh.
Cleopatra: From this day forward, I will answer the summons as a Heroic Spirit and protect human history.
Cleopatra: When that happens, I will use this beautiful face, this voice, this body to be an Assassin class Servant.
Cleopatra: In other words... My glory is wasted on you. Give it up and resign yourself to it!
Fujimaru 1: I'd welcome you any time!
Cleopatra: Th-That was a good answer, Fujimaru! You've been wonderful this far. Now you just need to rest!
Elisabeth: All right. Everything's good now!
Ibaraki-Douji: Mhh. So is everything done here? (Crunch, crunch)
Mash: Ibaraki-Douji... Slow down when you eat. There will be plenty of candy once Halloween begins.
Ibaraki-Douji: I'm not eating. I'm not eating any candy.
Elisabeth: ...So what was that selfish wish, anyway?
Nitocris: I've never heard of your wish. Would you tell us, if you don't mind?
Cleopatra: Yes, if that's what you want, Your Majesty. My wish... Well, I have several, but...
Cleopatra: I'd like to see the man I loved one more time. I don't really want to get back together with him, but...
Cleopatra: I still remember...
Cleopatra: The day he whispered sweet nothings into my ear while holding me in his slender but strong arms...
Cleopatra: His chiseled features, his cheek bones ever so tempting... And he was so sincere...
Cleopatra: Yes... I'd like to see my Caesar again...!
Robin Hood: ...
Mysterious Black Knight: ...
Ibaraki-Douji: What happened? Has the last boss made their appearance?
Fujimaru 1: Everyone, emergency huddle.
Elisabeth: This is bad. She's talking about THAT Caesar, right?
Mash: Yes, Caesar, one of the three least trustworthy Servants in Chaldea, and almost always the mastermind behind everything.
Dr. Roman: ...By the way, this is what Chaldea's Caesar looks like.
Mash: ...They both passed out.
Mash: Oh no. It looks like King Ozymandias is holding his stomach and trying to hold back his laughter...
Robin Hood: Yeah, it's quite a shock to see Caesar for the first time...
Fujimaru 1: Should we tell her the truth?
Mash: ...I don't think we should... We would be destroying her dream...
Elisabeth: ...But we should tell her someday.
Tristan: How sad... People change... They say aging isn't ugly, but...
Tristan: ...This goes beyond aging... Please forget this song...
Tristan: This is definitely a severe case of stress eating... Oh, how sad...
Tristan: I have only seen this level of stress in Agravain...
Cleopatra: You look like you're having fun over there! Let me join in too!
Cleopatra: And why are the great pharaohs collapsed on the floor like they had a sudden stomach ache or something!?
Mash: H-Hold on a second!
Dr. Roman: Huh? What's wrong? Did you call me? Want me to answer?
Dr. Roman: W-Wait. Hold on! Don't just Rayshift without my permi—
Mash: Doctor? Doctor...!?
Mash: H-He really did Rayshift...!
Elisabeth: This is bad! That means...!
Cleopatra: ...! This voice...!
Mash: Oh... He really did come...
Cleopatra: My Caesar...!? To think I can meet you again at last!
Cleopatra: I-I need a mirror. Does anyone have a mirror!?
Cleopatra: Is my makeup running? We were just fighting after all! Is it okay? Is it okay!?
???: Now all I have to do is show myself!
Cleopatra: My Cae—
Caesar: IT IS I!
Caesar: Hahaha. It's been a while, Cleopatra. Hmm? I guess this is the first time meeting each other as Servants.
Cleopatra: ... (THUD)
Mash: Yeah, I thought so...
Ibaraki-Douji: I guess she couldn't accept reality and escaped it by fainting...
Ibaraki-Douji: Humans are frail beings. They should just be positive as long as they have something to strive for.
Mash: Oh, a Holy Grail fragment came out. I'm going to collect it.
Cleopatra: ...Uuugh... Round... I saw something round... Rolling... Rolling around... Uuuugh...
Elisabeth: ...I can't tell her to leave with the pyramid right now...
Elisabeth: Let's have her rest here until her emotional scars heal.
Mash: Once Halloween starts, she might calm down a little bit too.
Mash: Yes, let's all have a very fun Halloween for her sake too!
Caesar: Very well! So who should I trick—I mean, persuade?
Caesar: I haven't made much of an appearance lately! My wit is so sharp right now, it's on par with a Lancer!
Mash: You should stay away until Cleopatra's emotional scars heal...
