GUDAGUDA Mystery of the Imperial Capital's Holy Grail
Final Section: Alter
Demon King of the Sixth Heaven - Oda Nobunaga: ...I thought it might go this way. In the end, it's down to you and me.
Demon King of the Sixth Heaven - Oda Nobunaga: Not that you have any fight left in you now.
Okita Souji: Why, Nobbu...!?
Okita Souji: No... Oda Nobunaga, Demon King of the Sixth Heaven!!!
Demon King of the Sixth Heaven - Oda Nobunaga: Hmph. You could never understand what I fight for.
Okita Souji: Answer me! Why did you do it...!?
Okita Souji: Why did you lay your hands on Master!?
Demon King of the Sixth Heaven - Oda Nobunaga: Because [♂ he /♀ she] was in the way.
Okita Souji: Wha...!?
Demon King of the Sixth Heaven - Oda Nobunaga: ...All who stand in my way must be destroyed.
Demon King of the Sixth Heaven - Oda Nobunaga: No one can stop me.
Demon King of the Sixth Heaven - Oda Nobunaga: Once I vanquish you and use this Maxwell Reactor, I will defy history itself to make everything my domain!
Okita Souji: Your domain...? That's...THAT'S why Chacha, Mr. Hijikata...
Okita Souji: ...and Master all had to die!?
Demon King of the Sixth Heaven - Oda Nobunaga: Enough talk. My flames will consume you soon.
Okita Souji: ...Chacha... ...Mr. Hijikata...
Okita Souji: ...Master...
Okita Souji: I... I...
Okita Souji: ...!?
Okita Souji: Wh-what is this...!?
Okita Souji: This light... I can feel everyone's hopes and dreams within it...!!!
Demon King of the Sixth Heaven - Oda Nobunaga: What!? You...!
C：???: I am the true Okita Souji...the strongest Okita Souji.
C：???: I am Okita Souji Alter!
Nobbu: ...That's how Alters are SUPPOSED to happen, right?
Nobbu: So how did this happen!?
Nobbu: You, what, just woke up one morning and were suddenly an Alter? That's silly and I'm not buying it!
Okita Alter?: ...
Well!? Say something, Okita!
Nobbu: And what's with that color palette, anyway!?
Nobbu: You look like a tryhard noob!
A：Oda Nobunaga: Huh? You got a tan because you just randomly fell asleep with the lights on? Come on! I've heard of sensitive skin but that's nuts!
Chacha: So this is Auntie losing it...
Chacha: Chacha remembers His Imperial Highness once said that she threw a pair of zori at him for no reason!
Chacha: So, Okita...Alter, was it?
Chacha: Your skin looks so much healthier now. Chacha approves of your new look.
Chacha: Oh, would you like some tea? It's Chacha's special matcha!
Nobbu: Stop that! This is no time for TEA!
Nobbu: Right, Fujimaru? You agree with me, don't you!?
Fujimaru 1: I am so confused...
Okita Alter?: ...
Okita Alter?: ...I see.
Fujimaru 2: Hey, wait! You killed me, Nobbu!?
Nobbu: Huh? I did?
Nobbu: Well, given the subject, I guess it can't be helped, right?
Chacha: So what about the original Okita? Is there anything left of her?
Okita Alter?: ...
Okita Alter?: So these...
Okita Alter?: ...are your memories, Master...
Okita Alter?: ...Fujimaru.
Okita Alter?: ...Thank you.
Okita Alter?: ...I'm glad I got to see your Chaldea in the end.
Section 1: Imperial Capital
Fujimaru 1: Huh? What is this place?
Fujimaru 2: ...Am I dreaming again?
D：Citizen: ...Hey! What're you standing around for!?
D：Citizen: Can't you hear the alarm!? You've gotta get as far away from here as you can!
Fujimaru 1: Excuse me, can you tell me where we are?
D：Citizen: Huh? What're you talking about!? This is the Imperial Capital, Tokyo! Obviously!
Fujimaru 2: Alarm?
D：Citizen: Hurry up, before you get caught in their cross fire!
D：Citizen: Fine, then! If you and your weird outfit are so eager to die, then stay there!
C：Mini Nobu: Nobbuuu!
Aaaaaahhh!!! I'm too late!
Fujimaru 1: Oh, it's just a Mini Nobu.
Fujimaru 2: NOW what's Nobbu up to?
Mini Nobu?: Nobbu!
D：Citizen: ...Wh-why? I'm a good...imperial citizen...
Mini Nobu?: Nobbuuu!
Fujimaru 1: ...Huh?
Fujimaru 2: ...I've gotta get out of here!
Mini Nobu?: Nobu nobuuu!
E：Citizen: P-please, h-help...!
Mini Nobu?: Nobu nobu!
Fujimaru 1: ...!
Fujimaru 2: I've just gotta find a way out!
Oda Nobunaga: ...
Fujimaru 1: Nobbu! Oh, great timing!
Fujimaru 2: Nobbu...?
Fujimaru 1: ...!?
Fujimaru 2: (Oof, that hurt!)
Oda Nobunaga: How dare you talk to me like that. Who do you think I am?
Oda Nobunaga: I'm Oda Nobunaga, the Demon King of the Sixth Heaven. Don't you forget it.
Fujimaru 1: What's going on...?
Fujimaru 2: I'm passing out...
Oda Nobunaga: Hmm, so you're an outsider. And here I thought you were one of Caster's people...
Oda Nobunaga: Seems I was worried over nothing.
Oda Nobunaga: ...Die.
Oda Nobunaga: ...And who are you?
Fujimaru 1: Aren't you...?
Fujimaru 2: ...Okita?
Oda Nobunaga: ...If that oversized sword you carry is anything to go by, I take it you are a Saber?
Oda Nobunaga: And on top of that, you're that little [♂ boy's /♀ girl's] Servant?
Oda Nobunaga: To think there was a Servant here still bound to a Master...
Oda Nobunaga: Interesting... I don't know where you came from, but no one comes strolling into my territory and gets away with it.
Oda Nobunaga: You Sabers are supposed to be the most powerful of the classes, right? Then let's see what you've got!
Oda Nobunaga: Is that all...?
Oda Nobunaga: Is that the best a member of the vaunted Saber class can do? I may as well be fighting a child.
Fujimaru 1: ...Are you okay?
Fujimaru 2: ...I've gotta do something!
Oda Nobunaga: What is it? ...Are you a mute?
Oda Nobunaga: Hmph, what a letdown... I guess this is going to be yet another dull battle.
Oda Nobunaga: I've had enough of you. Begone.
C：???: Fwahahaha, sorry to keep you waiting, weakling.
Fujimaru 1: ...Huh? You deflected the bullet?
Fujimaru 2: ...What is even happening right now?
Oda Nobunaga: You...deflected my shot?
C：???: As if your bullets would ever work on me. Idiot.
C：???: Hey, human, are you still alive? If not, would it be all right to eat you?
D：???: Hey, stop that. [♂ He's /♀ She's] an important guest, after all.
D：???: Oh, yes, hello there. Pleasure to make your acquaintance, Archer. Or, would you prefer...
D：???: ...Lady Oda Nobunaga.
Oda Nobunaga: ...Who are you?
C：???: What should we do, Boss? Do we kill her? ...Please?
D：???: No, let's fall back for now; I'm worried about [♂ his /♀ her] wound. Would you like to come with us too?
A：???: ...So these are words. I know them now.
Oda Nobunaga: What? You can talk after all?
Oda Nobunaga: ...No, wait. You LEARNED how to talk?
Oda Nobunaga: Hmph. Well, no matter. Did you really think I would let you escape just because this rabble showed up?
C：???: Don't bother. Not gonna work, remember?
C：???: ...So anyway, you want me to carry the [♂ guy /♀ girl]?
D：???: Yes, please. As gently as possible, if you don't mind. And you, Servant, I take it you can still move?
A：???: ...Yes, I'm okay.
D：???: Good. This way, Oryou!
Oda Nobunaga: Oh, no you don't... All of you, get after them!
Mini Nobu?: Nobu nobuuu!
D：???: Now, let's take a look at your wound.
D：???: Hmm... You're still bleeding quite a lot, but at least the bullet didn't hit anything vital.
C：???: You can die if you would like. Don't worry. You will make a delicious dinner if you do. For me, yes.
D：???: What have I told you about saying things like that, Oryou?
Fujimaru 1: Who are you two?
Fujimaru 2: ...Thank you for helping me, but who...?
D：???: Ah yes, I haven't introduced myself yet, have I?
D：???: My name is Sakamoto Ryouma, a Rider. And this place...
Sakamoto Ryouma: ...is the Imperial Capital, Tokyo.
Section 2: Pulsation
Narration: ...Meanwhile, somewhere in the city...
Officer: ...I'm here to make my regular report, General Amami.
Officer: Earlier this morning, June ●, 1945, during the ■th Holy Grail War...
Officer: ...we confirmed territory boundary conflicts with three Servants.
Major General Amami: ...Hmm. Earlier than usual.
Officer: Given the total number of Servants materialized, this falls within an acceptable margin of error.
Officer: We have also confirmed that their classes are Archer, Saber, and Lancer.
Officer: Each one established their own territory and started to fight.
Officer: Given the other classes' traits, and the fact that they're currently competing with each other...
Officer: ...we have not yet apprehended them or defined them.
Major General Amami: I see. Things got a little out of hand last time, so do make sure things go off without a hitch this time around.
Officer: Yes, sir.
Major General Amami: Three Knight classes, then? Tell me what we're dealing with here.
Officer: The Saber was a modern-day swordmaster.
Officer: The Lancer was an old-fashioned samurai warrior wielding a spear.
Officer: And the Archer... Well, I have her True Name right here.
Officer: ...Is this right!?
Major General Amami: What is it?
Officer: M-my apologies, sir. It seems the Archer is...
Officer: ...THE Oda Nobunaga.
Major General Amami: ...What!? Did you say...Oda Nobunaga?
Officer: Yes, sir. That's what our scouts are telling us.
Major General Amami: ...
Major General Amami: ...Heh.
Officer: ...Are you all right, sir?
Major General Amami: ...Yes, I'm fine. What's the latest on our Heroic Spirit Soldier deployment?
Officer: We've deployed two garrisons at key points in the Imperial Capital.
Officer: They're currently focused on maintaining the peace and conducting force reconnaissance.
Major General Amami: I see. Continue to monitor those three Servants. The survival of our Imperial Capital may depend upon it.
Officer: Yes, sir!
Major General Amami: ...You're dismissed.
Officer: Understood, sir.
Major General Amami: ...Hehe.
Major General Amami: ...Hehahahahaha!
Major General Amami: Haaahahahahahahahaha!
Major General Amami: At last...!
Major General Amami: At last, you have returned...!
Major General Amami: Lady Nobunaga!
D：???: Aww, [♂ he's /♀ she's] still alive.
C：???: Get away from [♂ him /♀ her].
D：???: ...Hmph. Another chance to eat [♂ him /♀ her] wasted.
C：???: ...Are you all right, Master?
Fujimaru 1: ...What is this place?
Sakamoto Ryouma: Well, it looks like you're all right now. Looks like your saliva worked, Oryou.
D：???: Hehe, there's nothing Oryou's saliva can't cure. Too bad. If [♂ he'd /♀ she'd] died, I could've eaten [♂ him /♀ her].
Fujimaru 2: Thanks for saving me.
Sakamoto Ryouma: It would seem you're all right now. She never left your side this whole time, you know.
D：???: She never gave me a chance to eat you. Stupid Saber.
Sakamoto Ryouma: To your question, we are in my humble detective agency, tucked away in a corner of Tokyo.
Sakamoto Ryouma: And this is my assistant, Oryou. My apologies for not introducing her sooner.
Sakamoto Ryouma: She's not a Servant, but she's just as capable as one.
Fujimaru 1: You sure she's not stronger than most Servants?
Fujimaru 2: I saw her deflect that bullet like it was nothing.
Oryou: That is a super-classified Oryou trade secret. Still, you're really durable, for a human.
Sakamoto Ryouma: And I'm Sakamoto Ryouma, a Rider. Maybe you've heard of me, if you know any Japanese history?
Fujimaru 1: I read about you in a textbook. You're a Meiji Restoration hero!
Sakamoto Ryouma: Haha... I'm honored. I never imagined I would end up in the history books someday!
Oryou: Yaaay. This calls for sekihan for dinner.
Fujimaru 2: Umm... You're from Tosa and were active during the Bakumatsu era...
Oryou: You are very knowledgeable. Maybe even more than Oryou.
Sakamoto Ryouma: A Meiji Restoration hero, huh...
Sakamoto Ryouma: I see. So your name is Fujimaru, and you're the Master of Chaldea.
Fujimaru 1: You know about Chaldea?
Sakamoto Ryouma: Nope. Not at all. Far as I can tell, you look to be a visitor from elsewhere.
Fujimaru 2: That's me. Master extraordinaire.
Sakamoto Ryouma: I know some of them are backups, but to command that many Servants...
Sakamoto Ryouma: Truly impressive.
Sakamoto Ryouma: ...As for that Servant who seems quite concerned about your well-being...
Sakamoto Ryouma: ...maybe it's time she introduced herself as well?
C：???: I'm...a Servant...I think.
C：???: ...Was I Okita? Do you know me, Master?
Fujimaru 1: You do look like Okita, but...
Sakamoto Ryouma: So...you're THE Okita? Or maybe, a different aspect of her?
Sakamoto Ryouma: No, I shouldn't be surprised. Anything could happen here.
Fujimaru 2: Have you ever heard of Alters?
Sakamoto Ryouma: Short for “alternative,” right? When a different side of a Heroic Spirit manifests, if I'm not mistaken.
Okita Alter: ...Okita. Is that my name? If you say it is, Master, then it must be.
Sakamoto Ryouma: So this is an Alter...
Sakamoto Ryouma: Still, I didn't think this was a particularly common occurrence.
Sakamoto Ryouma: Tell me, do you happen to know any other Altered Heroic Spirits?
Fujimaru 1: ...Uh...yeah, you could say I know...a few...
Fujimaru 2: I think another one just showed up recently.
Sakamoto Ryouma: That IS a surprise. You really know that many, do you?
Sakamoto Ryouma: You are not just any Master, it would seem.
Okita Alter: ...
Sakamoto Ryouma: Right, then. Why don't I explain what is happening here.
Sakamoto Ryouma: Oryou, would you make some tea for our guests?
Sakamoto Ryouma: ...Oryou?
Oryou: ...Huh!? Tea? Right, tea.
Oryou: Certainly, Boss. Oryou'll even throw in some saliva, too. Oryou's saliva can cure anything, after all.
Fujimaru 1: ...A Holy Grail War?
Fujimaru 2: ...So there's a Holy Grail War here too, huh.
Sakamoto Ryouma: That's right. I'm glad I won't have to waste any time explaining Holy Grail Wars, then.
Sakamoto Ryouma: ...As you know, a typical Holy Grail War is a battle between seven Servants for the Grail itself.
Sakamoto Ryouma: We are in a sort of variation of that. There are no Masters here, just a...LOT of Servants.
Sakamoto Ryouma: Many of these Servants are forced to fight tooth and nail just to secure one of the seven classes for themselves.
Fujimaru 1: Wait. Servants are fighting each other for classes?
Sakamoto Ryouma: Sort of. Defective Servants are killing each other in an attempt to secure a proper class.
Sakamoto Ryouma: Think of it as a sort of...selections stage preceding the actual battle itself.
Fujimaru 2: ...So it's a Holy Grail War with no Masters?
Sakamoto Ryouma: There have been rare cases of Rogue Servants, yes, but nothing like this.
Sakamoto Ryouma: Here, every Servant is acting on their own, without a single Master among them.
Sakamoto Ryouma: In fact, you're the very first Master I've ever seen.
Okita Alter: ...Then, does that mean I'm one of those Servants?
Sakamoto Ryouma: I'm afraid I can't speak to that...
Sakamoto Ryouma: All I know is that you're the only Servant I've seen here with a Master.
Sakamoto Ryouma: What are you doing here with [♂ him /♀ her], anyway?
Okita Alter: ...All I know is...when I came to, Master was there.
Okita Alter: I feel like I have to stay with [♂ him /♀ her], no matter what.
Oryou: Hey Ryouma, maybe she imprinted on [♂ him /♀ her]?
Oryou: You know, like when a baby bird thinks the first creature it sees is its mother?
Sakamoto Ryouma: Come now. Just because YOU did that doesn't mean–
Da Vinci: ...And that's my cue!
Mash: Senpai! Are you all right!?
Fujimaru 1: Da Vinci!
Fujimaru 2: Mash!
Oryou: What the hell? That scared Oryou.
Oryou: Hey, what kind of monster are you? A whatmon?
Sakamoto Ryouma: It looks like some of Master Fujimaru's friends have joined us. I'm impressed they managed to slip through the Imperial Capital's quarantine...
Da Vinci: Quarantine... Exactly!
Da Vinci: We're still figuring out how it happened, but what we do know...
Da Vinci: ...is that Fujimaru got trapped there during a Rayshift.
Da Vinci: Normally, we don't have any issue tracking [♂ him /♀ her], but for some reason, it was tricky this time.
Da Vinci: But being the unparalleled genius that I am, I was able to brute-force my way to reestablishing comms!
Mash: I'm just glad you're all right, Senpa–Wait, what happened to your stomach!?
Fujimaru 1: I'm okay. It looks worse than it is.
Mash: I-I see...
Fujimaru 2: I got...shot. Just a little though.
Mash: Are you sure you're all right!?
Oryou: Relax. A little spit and [♂ he'll /♀ she'll] be good as new.
Mash: Spit...!? Um, Senpai, can I ask who you are with?
Oryou: Oryou's Oryou. Just who the hell are you?
Sakamoto Ryouma: Yes, yes, just wait your turn, Oryou...
Sakamoto Ryouma: Let's try that again. It's a pleasure to make your acquaintance. I'm Sakamoto Ryouma, a Rider.
Sakamoto Ryouma: I take it you're Master Fujimaru's friends? You're affiliated with this Chaldea place [♂ he /♀ she] spoke of?
Da Vinci: So you're the ones who helped Fujimaru out. Thanks for that.
Da Vinci: You seem like the sort of Servant with a good head on his shoulders.
Da Vinci: How about it, Fujimaru? Has that been your experience so far?
Fujimaru 1: He and Oryou did save me...
Fujimaru 2: I definitely don't think he's a bad person.
Da Vinci: Got it. If that's what you think, I'm willing to give them a chance.
Da Vinci: But I do want to make sure of one thing first. What are you hoping to get out of all this, Rider?
Sakamoto Ryouma: I suppose I should've seen that question coming.
Sakamoto Ryouma: ...Hmm. There's no sense lying about this, so I'll just be direct.
Sakamoto Ryouma: I want to either retrieve or destroy the Holy Grail. I'd even be happy to let Master Fujimaru have it if [♂ he /♀ she] wants.
Da Vinci: Hmm, and why is that? I don't see how an arrangement like that could possibly benefit you.
Sakamoto Ryouma: You've got me there... Someone else said something real similar to me a long time ago.
Sakamoto Ryouma: All right, let me put it this way. The Holy Grail is the cause of a lot of suffering for the people here.
Sakamoto Ryouma: I want to help them and put a stop to it. That's all.
Da Vinci: You want to help them? That's it? You're really just going to say it flat out like that, in that lovely baritone voice of yours?
Da Vinci: Heh... Hahahahaha! You really got me good! Talk about an emergency!
Fujimaru 1: You don't have to laugh that much.
Fujimaru 2: Come on Da Vinci, be nice.
Da Vinci: Oh come on, you have to admit it's funny. I mean, this guy couldn't be more suspicious if he tried!
Da Vinci: Still... Hmm, I suppose I will take you at your word. I do know Sakamoto Ryouma to be a Heroic Spirit who is certainly worthy of trust.
Mash: Huh? Why is that, Acting Director Da Vinci?
Da Vinci: Oh, I took a gander at his file, and everything he's saying right now lines up with how he was in life.
Da Vinci: He's a very greedy person. He always sought wider recognition more than individual gratitude.
Da Vinci: People like that might talk a good game, but they don't lie. Don't you agree, Fujimaru?
Fujimaru 1: Yeah, you may be right.
Fujimaru 2: I do think he's a good person.
Mash: I, uh, I see...
Da Vinci: All right then, Rider, I'm counting on you to take good care of Fujimaru.
Da Vinci: As for us, we're Chaldea, the Security Organization dedicated to the Preservation of Humanity.
Da Vinci: You can think of us as Fujimaru's backup team, [♂ his /♀ her] operational support, if you like.
Da Vinci: I am Leonardo da Vinci. Most people just call me Da Vinci, though!
Mash: And I'm Mash...Mash Kyrielight. I'm one of Senpai's Servants.
Okita Alter: ...Hm.
Mash: So, you're...Sakamoto Ryouma.
Mash: Even though you're a master of the Hokushin Ittouryu, your greatest achievement did not involve drawing your sword...
Mash: ...but in helping to negotiate the Satchou Alliance in an effort to restore imperial rule to Japan. You were a hero of the Meiji Restoration.
Oryou: Wow, Ryouma. Oryou didn't know you were so famous. Yaaay. Now we can have sekihan tomorrow too.
Sakamoto Ryouma: Mmm. How kind of you.
Sakamoto Ryouma: Let's see, Da Vinci, was it?
Sakamoto Ryouma: It seems you've already gotten a good look at what's going on here in Tokyo, yes?
Da Vinci: Righto. Honestly, this sorta stuff happens all the time, so it's not really anything new for us. But let me fill you in just in case.
Da Vinci: That place you're in now? Tokyo is the only thing that exists there. Basically a self-contained island.
Fujimaru 1: Only Tokyo?
Fujimaru 2: What do you mean?
Da Vinci: It's shut in by a series of invisible walls, which makes it impossible to get in or out using conventional means.
Da Vinci: It's a bit like a Singularity in that it's quite separate from regular human history.
Fujimaru 1: Then, nobody can escape from here?
Fujimaru 2: Does that mean you can't intervene from the outside?
Sakamoto Ryouma: A Singularity, huh... Yeah, that sounds about right.
Sakamoto Ryouma: ...You're spot-on.
Sakamoto Ryouma: Nobody, whether human or Servant, is able to set one foot outside the Imperial Capital's limits.
Sakamoto Ryouma: It's completely isolated, even from history itself.
Mash: Then, how is Senpai supposed to get back?
Da Vinci: Oh, don't you worry about that, Mash.
Da Vinci: The fact that we're able to communicate like this means there should also be a way to Rayshift [♂ him /♀ her] out of there.
Da Vinci: Though we'll need a lot more information and a much more stable connection to improve our odds of success.
Da Vinci: Fortunately, since I'm such an amazing genius, I've already mapped out the Singularity's structure.
Da Vinci: Near as I can tell, it's erecting a Bounded Field around several different points to maintain the whole area's integrity.
Da Vinci: I've narrowed down a few points that seem like likely candidates, but I can't say anything for sure without seeing them for myself...
Sakamoto Ryouma: Not to worry. What you've said has been a big help, believe it or not.
Sakamoto Ryouma: I already planned to investigate this place myself anyway.
Da Vinci: Sorry, the simulation we're using to observe you there just went kinda haywire.
Da Vinci: It looks like somebody's jamming our signal. Whoever it is, they must have some kinda jerkwad engineer working for them.
Da Vinci: It's going to take us a while to sort all this out, and we'll have to disconnect while we do it.
Da Vinci: I'm afraid this is all we can do for now. Let me send you the points to investigate before we go.
Da Vinci: ...All right, Fujimaru.
Da Vinci: We'll keep an eye on things from here as best we can, but make sure you watch your own back too.
Mash: Yes, please be careful, Senpai!
Mash: B-by the way, is that Okita there with you? She seems...kind of different...
Da Vinci: I was too busy with my analysis to pay much attention, but now that you mention it, she DOES have a different air about her, doesn't she.
Mash: It's not just the air. Her whole color palette is–
Okita Alter: Who was that...?
Fujimaru 1: Uh, that was Mash?
Fujimaru 2: That was my really helpful kouhai.
Okita Alter: ...Hm.
Okita Alter: ...I see.
Oryou: What's wrong? You hungry or something?
Sakamoto Ryouma: ...You're more than a little clueless about some things, aren't you, Oryou.
Sakamoto Ryouma: Anyway, we don't have any time to waste. I need to find out what the other Servants are up to.
Sakamoto Ryouma: Since your wound still needs time to heal, can I ask you to stay here and watch the place while I'm gone?
Oryou: He means weaklings should stay put. Sit... Stay! Good small fry.
Fujimaru 1: Understood.
Fujimaru 2: Small fry...?
Okita Alter: ...I'll keep Master safe.
Sakamoto Ryouma: Yes, please do. That will be a big help.
Sakamoto Ryouma: Say, I have an idea. If you have the time, maybe you'd like to help me a bit with my work?
Sakamoto Ryouma: Things have kind of piled up while I've been away from the office, you see.
Sakamoto Ryouma: I'll be happy to pay you, of course, and you wouldn't have to go far out of your way. Just handle whatever you're comfortable with. That should be fine.
Sakamoto Ryouma: Since this area is a good ways away from the three Servants' territories, it should be pretty safe.
Fujimaru 1: Territories?
Sakamoto Ryouma: Ah, yes. It's a sort of additional rule specific to this Holy Grail War.
Sakamoto Ryouma: As long as a Servant with an official class is inside their own territory...
Sakamoto Ryouma: ...they receive special support from the Holy Grail.
Okita Alter: ...I don't have any support.
Sakamoto Ryouma: That's why I specified they have to have an official class.
Sakamoto Ryouma: Only once a Servant has won a battle for a class, and then been registered as that class...
Sakamoto Ryouma: ...will the Holy Grail begin to support them.
Sakamoto Ryouma: You can't compete with other Servants over territory until you've done that much.
Fujimaru 1: Reminds me of that ink shooter that Archer and Hokusai play...
Fujimaru 2: It reminds me of Risk or something.
Sakamoto Ryouma: Essentially. All of the contestants are competing for territory.
Sakamoto Ryouma: Incidentally, since I'm a Rider, I have some leeway to ignore the other Servants' territories and go where I please.
Sakamoto Ryouma: Luckily for me, that's a handy thing to be able to do when you're conducting an investigation.
Fujimaru 1: I see.
Sakamoto Ryouma: I'm glad you catch on so quickly. I've never been part of a Holy Grail War quite like this either.
Sakamoto Ryouma: There are still a lot of things I'm unsure about, and the only way to find out more is to do the legwork.
Fujimaru 2: Does that go for the Mini Nobus too?
Sakamoto Ryouma: You mean those strange creatures the Archer was commanding? It seems so, yes.
Sakamoto Ryouma: The effect seems to differ depending on the Heroic Spirit and class, so in the end, it still comes down to investigating matters directly.
Sakamoto Ryouma: All right then, I'm going out for a while. Thanks for keeping an eye on my office in the meantime.
Oryou: Oryou will bring you back a frog.
Fujimaru 1: Be careful out there.
Fujimaru 2: Um, I'm not really fond of frogs...
Sakamoto Ryouma: See you soon.
Oryou: Hey, Ryouma. Are you sure about them?
Sakamoto Ryouma: You mean the Master? I think we'll be fine. [♂ He /♀ She] seems like a perfectly nice person.
Sakamoto Ryouma: I do consider myself a decent judge of character, you know. Plus, it seems like [♂ his /♀ her] friends are rather capable as well.
Oryou: No, Oryou meant to ask if those weaklings will be okay watching your office alone.
Sakamoto Ryouma: ...I'm shocked. I never thought you would ever worry about a human.
Sakamoto Ryouma: Have you taken a liking to [♂ him /♀ her]?
Oryou: Yes. [♂ He /♀ She] looks yummy.
Sakamoto Ryouma: Ah, I see...
Sakamoto Ryouma: Don't worry, they'll be fine. If I'm right, then that Servant is...
Oryou: What? Does your stomach hurt?
Sakamoto Ryouma: No, no, I'm fine.
A：Sakamoto Ryouma: Anyway, this certainly isn't the first time, but...
A：Sakamoto Ryouma: ...it looks like this Holy Grail War is going to be quite a pain in the neck.
Section 3: Man-Slayer
Rogue Servant: ...!?
G：Man in Black Coat: Hmph. I don't know if you were some big, tough Saber in your day, but you're nothing to me.
G：Man in Black Coat: You got some nerve, thinking you could take me on as weak as you are.
Rogue Servant: ...!
G：Man in Black Coat: Oho... So you're trying to use the closest thing you have to a Noble Phantasm.
G：Man in Black Coat: Too bad.
Rogue Servant: ...!
G：Man in Black Coat: ...I've already learned your technique.
Radio Announcement: This just in. Early this morning, the Army's 4th Magecraft Unit announced...
Radio Announcement: ...that a Holy Grail War has begun in the Imperial Capital, Tokyo.
Radio Announcement: We repeat: a Holy Grail War has begun in Tokyo.
Okita Alter: ...
Fujimaru 1: Huh, it's on the news?
Okita Alter: ...Oh, normally it isn't? ...I see.
Fujimaru 2: Do you like listening to the radio?
Okita Alter: ...Yes. ...It's also good for learning words.
Okita Alter: ...For some reason, there are many things I don't know.
Okita Alter: Servants should have memories of their lives, but I do not.
Okita Alter: Okita Souji... Is that who I am?
Okita Alter: And why am I missing the knowledge of this era that the Grail should have given me when I materialized?
Okita Alter: I couldn't even speak until a little while ago...
Okita Alter: ...What am I?
Fujimaru 1: Alter...
Okita Alter: ...
Okita Alter: I don't even know if I'm a Saber. I think I'm too weak for that.
Fujimaru 2: At least you learned quickly, right?
Okita Alter: ...Hm? Yes, I guess that's true.
Okita Alter: Maybe...I'm actually smart?
Okita Alter: By the way, Master, are you sure you're okay making a contract with a strange Servant like me?
Okita Alter: I'm not even sure if we sealed our contract properly...
Fujimaru 1: I'm sure I can count on you.
Fujimaru 2: I'm glad I met you.
Okita Alter: ...!
Okita Alter: ...I see. I'm glad I met you, too.
Okita Alter: ...Hold it.
Okita Alter: ...Someone's here.
Fujimaru 1: Maybe it's a customer?
Fujimaru 2: Maybe it's Sakamoto?
Man in Black Coat: ...Pardon me. Is this the Sakamoto residence?
Fujimaru 1: ...Uh, yes, that's right.
Fujimaru 2: ...I'm afraid Sakamoto isn't here right now.
Man in Black Coat: I see. Just what I wanted to hear.
Man in Black Coat: ...I am going to kill you now.
Okita Alter: What do you think you're doing?
Man in Black Coat: What's this? Who are you? Why are you getting in my way?
Man in Black Coat: Ah, the sword... I take it you are a Saber?
Fujimaru 1: An enemy Servant!?
Fujimaru 2: Alter! Are you okay!?
Man in Black Coat: What nonsense.
Man in Black Coat: Servants killing each other is the point of a Holy Grail War. Of course I'd start by getting rid of the weaker ones.
Man in Black Coat: And you ARE weak, aren't you, Saber? I could tell the moment we crossed blades.
Man in Black Coat: Honestly, I can hardly believe you're a Saber with such pitiful skills.
Okita Alter: ...
Man in Black Coat: Haha!
Man in Black Coat: So THIS is the Saber? One of the three strongest classes? That's hysterical!
Man in Black Coat: Talk about a lucky break, getting you as my first opponent.
Man in Black Coat: NOW DIE!
Okita Alter: ...Hmm. I should have known.
Okita Alter: Other Servants are much harder to fight than those weaker enemies.
Man in Black Coat: What are you? Are you sure you're a Saber?
Man in Black Coat: Your swordplay is a bad joke. Your form is BEYOND amateurish. Are you carrying that enormous blade around just for show?
Okita Alter: ...I'm sorry, Master, I can't beat him. I guess I really am weak.
Fujimaru 1: Let's get out of here!
Fujimaru 2: You don't have to win. We just have to survive.
Okita Alter: ...Okay. Let's run for it.
Okita Alter: Hold on tight. Don't let go.
Man in Black Coat: Fools! Do you really think I'd let you escape!?
Okita Alter: ...I'm sorry I'm such a useless Servant, Master.
Okita Alter: You must be very disappointed in me.
Fujimaru 1: Not at all, Alter.
Fujimaru 2: Can we maybe talk about this later?
Man in Black Coat: ...Don't bother running away. I can tell exactly what you're going to do.
Man in Black Coat: It is too little, too late, but I suppose I can at least commend your quick getaway attempt.
Okita Alter: ...Did you hear that, Master? He said my getaway attempt was quick.
Okita Alter: Maybe I'm not useless after all!
Man in Black Coat: ...Are you mocking me?
Okita Alter: Am I, Master?
Fujimaru 1: Never mind that! Let's just run for it!
Fujimaru 2: I...don't think that's what's going on here.
Man in Black Coat: Nobody mocks me and gets away with it!
Oryou: You sure about that, little Assassin?
Man in Black Coat: ...You!?
Sakamoto Ryouma: Are you all right, Fujimaru?
Sakamoto Ryouma: Well if it isn't Izo. As I live and breathe! Haven't seen you around here in a dog's age.
Fujimaru 1: Sakamoto!
Sakamoto Ryouma: Oh, sorry, guess that's the country in me slipping out. Anyway! Sorry I was gone so long!
Fujimaru 2: You sound...different.
Sakamoto Ryouma: Oh, sorry. I usually try to keep the country under control, but sometimes it just slips out.
D：Izo: ...Ryooouma! You've got a lot of nerve showing your face here, traitor!
Oryou: Calm down, little Assassin. All that anger just makes you seem even smaller.
D：Izo: Shut it, ya bitch!
D：Izo: Ryouma! First you sell us out, then you show up like nothing happened!?
D：Izo: And now you're claiming to be a hero of the Meiji Restoration!? Is there no end to your mockery!?
D：Izo: You got me beheaded, you piece of shit!
D：Izo: I'll NEVER forgive you!
Sakamoto Ryouma: I'm sorry.
Sakamoto Ryouma: I really do feel bad about that.
Sakamoto Ryouma: But we also really don't have time for this right now. There's a seriously dangerous Servant right behind us!
Okita Souji: You're not getting away from me, Rider.
Okita Souji: If you thought you could enter my territory and leave alive, you were sorely mistaken.
Fujimaru 1: Okita!?
Fujimaru 2: Huh? She seems different somehow...
Okita Alter: ...Okita?
Okita Souji: Hm? An Assassin, and... What!?
Okita Souji: Is that...me?
Okita Alter: ...You're my–
Sakamoto Ryouma: Now! Oryou, jump!
Sakamoto Ryouma: Take these two and Izo with you!
Oryou: You mean Oryou's gotta take the little Assassin too? Ughhh...
Oryou: Fine, since you asked. But just today.
D：Izo: This isn't over, Ryouma! Hey! Let go of me, you brute!
Oryou: D-don't call me a brute. Oryou's not a brute; you're a brute. Hey, are you sure we can't just leave this annoying bug behind?
Sakamoto Ryouma: No, sorry. Try not to let him provoke you for a bit... Anyway, Okita, we'll be saying bye for now.
Okita Souji: You're not going any–Urk...!?
Okita Souji: I didn't even realize I'd strayed out of my territory...
Okita Souji: I guess going after Riders on foot isn't the best idea...
Okita Souji: ...Still, that Servant...
Okita Souji: She looked just like me...
Section 4: Battle Front
Fujimaru 1: Um... Do you guys know each other or something?
Fujimaru 2: ...Is it just me, or is it kind of cold in here?
Oryou: Why did we bring this dumb little bug with us? He's ugly. We should have left him behind.
Ryouma: Well, Izo and I go way back.
Ryouma: Okada Izo of Tosa was pretty famous in Kyoto back when the Tokugawa shogunate was on its last legs.
Okita Alter: So, you know each other?
D：Izo: KNOW each other!? This coward betrayed us!
Ryouma: ...And I said I was sorry about that.
D：Izo: Sorry!? You think just saying sorry makes up for what you did!?
D：Izo: How about I cut you to ribbons right here, and then we'll see how sorry you are?
Ryouma: ...I see. I didn't realize you hated me that much.
Ryouma: ...All right. If that's what it takes to make you feel better, go ahead.
Ryouma: Kill me.
Oryou: Huh? No. That doesn't work for Oryou.
Ryouma: It's all right, Oryou. Please, stay out of this.
D：Izo: I'm serious about this, Ryouma!
D：Izo: I'm a man of my word! If I say I'll do something, I will damn well do it!
Fujimaru 1: Huh!?
Fujimaru 2: Is this really happening!?
Izo: Wh-why didn't you dodge, Ryouma!?
Oryou: Ryouma! That's a serious wound!
Ryouma: ...What, this? It's nothing. If it helps Izo feel better, I can deal with it.
Ryouma: Besides, if he'd really meant to kill me, I'd be dead.
Ryouma: ...Isn't that right?
Izo: Wha... I-I knew you were a coward, but I didn't think you were an idiot, too! I swear, as long as we've known each other...!
Izo: Dammit! Just go ahead and die for all I care!
Ryouma: Haha... Well, that should help keep the peace around here, right?
Ryouma: ...Oh, would someone mind grabbing those bandages for me?
Ryouma: ...Phew. Thanks, Oryou.
Ryouma: Oh, and I'm good on saliva, thanks. Besides, it's...pretty sticky.
Oryou: Shut up. If you die, Oryou dies too, you know. Be careful.
Izo: This doesn't mean I've forgiven you!
Izo: I, uh... I just don't feel like killing you now, that's all!
Ryouma: I know. Thanks, Izo. Holding back for now is more than enough.
Izo: Why you... Do you EVER shut up...!?
Ryouma: Now, getting back to our previous discussion...
Ryouma: I've managed a bit of investigating. Between that and the data Chaldea gave us, I think I've more or less sorted out how things work here.
Ryouma: There are anchors made from fragments of the Holy Grail located at several points around the city...
Ryouma: ...and each of them commands its own Servant.
Ryouma: Every Servant with an official class has their territory set around their anchor.
Ryouma: The rules of this Holy Grail War are simple: fight the other Servants, gain their territories, and become the sole victor.
Da Vinci: ...Exactly!
Da Vinci: Damn, I wanted to be the one to explain all that.
Fujimaru 1: Da Vinci!
Da Vinci: That's right! Geniuses are the best at dramatic entrances! Even if that wasn't quite what I was aiming for this time.
Fujimaru 2: Mash!
Mash: Thank goodness you're all right, Senpai!
Mash: Thanks to Da Vinci's analysis, we've figured out a way to bring you back.
Da Vinci: ...So!
Da Vinci: Since the anchors holding that place together are made from Holy Grail fragments...
Da Vinci: ...all you have to do is destroy them, and that world's foundations should come crumbling down, taking the Singularity with them.
Da Vinci: Even better, once that's done, the signals jamming our observations should disappear too...
Da Vinci: ...which will make Rayshifting Fujimaru back to Chaldea pretty simple.
Da Vinci: Still... We have a goal, but actually making it happen is a bit more difficult.
Da Vinci: And then there's the whole twisting a Holy Grail War into some sort of Servant war game thing...
Da Vinci: Why would anyone go to the trouble of setting up this Singularity to run on a system that is such a complete pain in the ass?
B：Sakamoto Ryouma: ...
Da Vinci: We'll keep an eye on that as we investigate.
Da Vinci: For now, Fujimaru, I'd like you to focus mainly on destroying the anchors.
Da Vinci: Aw crap, are we out of time already? Okay, one last quick thing.
Da Vinci: You know the Servants' territories? Well, they look like they're linked to the anchors too.
Da Vinci: The more you whittle down enemy Servants' territories the less assistance they'll get from the Grail.
Da Vinci: All right, looks like we're out of time, so, later!
Mash: Oh, Senpai, about the tan Okita next to–
Okita Alter: ...She seems a little too friendly with you.
Fujimaru 1: You think?
Okita Alter: ...Yes.
Fujimaru 2: Mash and I have been through a lot together.
Okita Alter: ...I see. A lot, huh.
Ryouma: At any rate, now we know what our goal is.
Ryouma: We need to whittle down each Servant's territory and sever their connection to the Grail. Yeah, that's a lot more clear-cut.
Ryouma: Which means this is where we get serious. If we all work together, I'm sure we can pull it off.
Fujimaru 1: Got it! ...Uh, by the way...
Fujimaru 2: Er... What about you, Assassin? What are you going to do?
Ryouma: You will help us, right, Izo?
Izo: Are ya insane!?
Izo: Why would I ever help YOU lot!?
Izo: I'm ONE of the Servants in this Holy Grail War, you know!
Ryouma: I don't expect you to help for nothing, Izo.
Ryouma: Sure, you're a genius with the sword. But even you can't take them all on alone, can you?
Izo: Don't bother buttering me up! All you ever do is trick me into going along with you!
Ryouma: ...Izo. You saw that enemy Saber for yourself, remember?
Ryouma: She's tough. Really tough.
Izo: ...You mean the one in the haori?
Izo: I'd recognize that detestable blue haori anywhere... Ryouma, does that mean–
Ryouma: That's right. She's part of the strongest group of master swordsmen of the late Tokugawa shogunate...
Ryouma: ...the group you and I have a long history with...
Rogue Servant: ...!?
Hijikata: Hey, you...
Rogue Servant: ...!?
Hijikata: Are you with Satsuma, or Choushu?
Rogue Servant: ...!?!?
Hijikata: Well, I guess it doesn't matter. Get in my way...
Hijikata: ...and I'll cut you down where you stand!
Rogue Servant: ...!?!?!?
Hijikata: Not yet... I'm not done yet...!
Hijikata: Cut them up...!
Hijikata: CUT THEM UP...!
Hijikata: This is...
Hijikata: ...the Shinsengumi!!!
Section 5: Competence
Oda Nobunaga: ...Hmm. The Rider and the Assassin, eh.
Scout Mini Nobu: Nobbu!
Oda Nobunaga: Hmph. Well, it doesn't matter how many weaklings band together. They have no chance against me.
Oda Nobunaga: In the meantime, continue gathering all the information you can.
Scout Mini Nobu: Nobu!
E：???: Lady Nobunaga...
Oda Nobunaga: ...What is it?
E：???: There is a messenger here, on the Caster's behalf.
Oda Nobunaga: Oh? The Caster, eh... I can't imagine they're serious about wanting to team up...
Oda Nobunaga: Well, no matter. Go and hear what it is they have to say, Nobukatsu.
Oda Nobukatsu: Yes, Lady Nobunaga! Consider it done, Sister.
Rogue Servant: [[File:berserkervoice1.png50px]]!!!
Izo: Outta my way, moron!
Rogue Servant: !?
Izo: Hmph... Weakling. Come on, the path's clear now.
Fujimaru 1: You're not much for diplomacy, are you...?
Fujimaru 2: Do you have to be so...you know...
Izo: What? Ya got a problem with how I deal with things?
Izo: If I hadn't cut that thing down, you'd be breathing through your neck right now.
Izo: Or would you have preferred to die so we could spare its feelings?
Fujimaru 1: I-I guess you're right...
Fujimaru 2: I can't argue with that...
Izo: Hmph. Well, your Servant IS quite weak.
Izo: This would have been a much longer fight if I hadn't been here.
Okita Alter: ...That may be true, but it's still mean of you to say. Anyway, are you sure about this, Master?
Okita Alter: This Servant tried to kill Master.
Ryouma: It's okay. Izo at least takes his job seriously. I know he'll do great, just like he did for Mr. Katsu.
Izo: It's not JUST my job I take seriously!
Izo: Relax. I'm a man of my word.
Izo: ...Unlike that lying Ryouma.
Fujimaru 1: How do you know Sakamoto, anyway?
Izo: ...We grew up in the same town. We used to play and go fishing together all the time.
Fujimaru 2: You're nicer than I thought.
Izo: Huh? Are you as thickheaded as he is? I'm only helping you out for the time being!
Izo: Anyway, once this is over, I'm just going to kill you all at once.
Izo: ...This is it.
Fujimaru 1: So this is the Lancer's hideout...
Fujimaru 2: How did you know where it was?
Izo: I'm an Assassin. This is kind of my thing, kid.
Izo: Once I set my sights on someone, they don't get away.
Okita Alter: I see. So that's how you found us.
Izo: Something's not right... I can't sense the Lancer's presence anymore.
Fujimaru 1: Are you sure?
Izo: Lancer was here just a moment ago, I'm sure of it...
Fujimaru 2: Did you maybe make a mistake?
Izo: I'm divine punishment incarnate! I don't MAKE mistakes!
Izo: ...Aha. That explains it.
Izo: It looks like someone got here before us.
Izo: ...Come on. They're inside.
Li Shuwen: ...Welcome, friend. Or, at least, welcome, visitor from the Far East.
Li Shuwen: Then again, I only just got here myself, so maybe greetings aren't necessary.
Izo: ...Did you kill the Lancer?
Li Shuwen: Kakaka, easy there!
Li Shuwen: This Holy Grail War has been rather dull, what with so few worthwhile opponents to fight.
Li Shuwen: I was hoping these official Servants would be more of a challenge in their own territory, but as you can see, I was sadly mistaken.
Li Shuwen: I was told that Holy Grail Wars were a fearsome clash between heroes old and new.
Li Shuwen: So naturally, I was curious to pit my own skills against these great heroes.
Li Shuwen: However, it seems that my reputation for killing in a single strike still rings true.
Li Shuwen: What an incredible letdown it was when the battle really was over with a single strike.
Fujimaru 1: You killed the Lancer here with one hit!?
Fujimaru 2: Izo, this Lancer's
Izo: ...Shut it.
Izo: Hmph, I bet you're one of those dilettantes who only practices martial arts in the safety of their dojo. Awfully smut for a glorified athlete.
Izo: I hate to bring you down while you are clearly riding high on your victories over so many weaklings...
Izo: ...but I'm afraid now that I've found you, your luck's run out.
Izo: Prepare to be cut down where you stand!
Li Shuwen: Good, good. That's the sort of absurd boasting I had been hoping for. Now I need not hold back.
Li Shuwen: So, which of you would like to face me first? Or I can also take you all on at once if you prefer.
Izo: Huh? These two are only here to watch.
Izo: I can handle a little spear-wielder like you without breaking a sweat.
Izo: ...Now DIE!
Li Shuwen: Kaka, that's more like it!
Li Shuwen: I look forward to seeing what challenge, if any, your swordsmanship offers.
Ryouma: ...This is awful. All these beautiful flowers, snuffed out in their prime.
Ryouma: Even for a Berserker, this is horrific.
Ryouma: This park is supposed to be for everyone.
Oryou: It looks like he just went around killing anyone who happened to be close by. Even Oryou wouldn't make this much of a mess.
Ryouma: I don't know about that. You can get awfully messy. Anyway...how do we find the Berserker in question...
Hijikata: ...Hey, you.
Oryou: Ah. Ryouma, behind you.
Hijikata: Hey, you... Are you with Satsuma, or Choushu?
Ryouma: Oh, well then... It seems the Berserker found us.
Ryouma: Huh? Wait a moment... I know there's something wildly different about you, but aren't you...
Ryouma: ...Well, well. It looks like Izo isn't the only blast from my past here.
Hijikata: Answer me... Are you with Satsuma, or Choushu?
Hijikata: If you refuse to answer...
Hijikata: ...that will itself be answer enough...!
Ryouma: I never thought I'd run into the Demon Vice Commander of the Shinsengumi having a drink among the cherry blossoms here of all places.
Ryouma: Looks like you won't need to hold back, Oryou!
Hijikata: So you are my enemies. Just as I thought.
Hijikata: ...This area belongs to the Shinsengumi. Nobody sets foot here and leaves alive!
Izo: H-how can I be losing!?
Li Shuwen: ...How boring. You really are all bark and no bite.
Li Shuwen: I can see where this is going. The best you can hope for is to die honorably now.
Li Shuwen: Go ahead, come at me one more time. I can at least give you a quick death.
Izo: ...This can't be happening!
Izo: My...my sword is invincible!
Izo: ...W-wait, of course! The territory!
Izo: You changed places with that Lancer you defeated, didn't you!
Izo: You can't fool me! I know how you Three Knight Classes get way more support from the Holy Grail than the rest of us!
Izo: Y-you're a coward, using cheap tricks like that!
Fujimaru 1: Izo, it's...really not that in this case.
Fujimaru 2: This particular Lancer is just, well...
Okita Alter: ...He's not using anything. ...He's just strong, plain and simple.
Li Shuwen: ...What a shame. If only you didn't have such a short temper.
Li Shuwen: You have enough natural talent that, with training, you could have really been something.
Izo: C-COULD have been!?
Izo: My sword has never failed me!
Izo: Nobody could beat me! I could make any other style my own just be seeing it in action once!
Izo: I...I am a genius with the sword!
Li Shuwen: I know. You clearly have a gift for observation. You even surpass me in raw talent.
Li Shuwen: But that's all you have. A true martial artist must be skilled in many disciplines. Training only in one discipline is no path to supremacy.
Li Shuwen: You should have disposed with such foolish notions while you were still young. Unfortunately, it seems fate was not kind to you.
Li Shuwen: I can tell you must have died while you were still young and foolish. What a waste.
Izo: What did you say...?
Li Shuwen: Enough talk now. I have sworn to take no more than one life per battle.
Li Shuwen: This is as far as you go, Assassin, but I'm willing to let the [♂ boy /♀ girl] live for now.
Li Shuwen: After all, if I were to kill everyone every time, I'd soon run out of prey with which to make my living.
Fujimaru 1: I don't think so.
Fujimaru 2: Stand back, Izo. Let's do this, Alter!
Okita Alter: ...Got it.
Izo: Are you mad!? How many times have I told you!? Even I was no match for him!
Izo: There's no way such a pathetically weak Servant as her could last more than a second!
Okita Alter: ...
Li Shuwen: ...I see. So you will be my true opponent.
Li Shuwen: Very well then, yours will be the life I take in this battle.
Okita Alter: ...Master, this Servant is very strong.
Okita Alter: But I won't let him kill you. I promise.
Fujimaru 1: I'm counting on you, Alter!
Fujimaru 2: I know you won't.
Li Shuwen: Trust born from loyalty, hmm? Very well then. It's been some time since I killed a human!
Okita Alter: ...Guh!
Fujimaru 1: Alter!
Li Shuwen: Hahahaha! This was quite an exciting match!
Li Shuwen: You were doomed from the start, but still you blocked my attacks no fewer than three times!
Li Shuwen: Pathetic swordsmanship indeed. You seem to lack confidence in your skills...but that is obviously not because you had it once and then lost it.
Li Shuwen: No, I believe there is nothing wrong with you as you are now.
Okita Alter: ...!
Li Shuwen: That is why your last push was so powerful.
Li Shuwen: ...The gods can be quite cruel. You have lost your destiny, and so remain ignorant. Yet from that ignorance came a flawless, techniqueless decisive blow.
Li Shuwen: Your conviction was a sight to behold. You must care about that [♂ boy /♀ girl] a great deal.
Okita Alter: ...Lancer.
Li Shuwen: ...Still, I may not have lost if I hadn't relaxed my guard. I suppose I'm in no position to lecture.
Li Shuwen: You there, subservient Assassin. I would say that my spear and your sword were a hairsbreadth apart.
Li Shuwen: But even a hairsbreadth can be a world of distance.
Izo: ...Why are you helping me?
Li Shuwen: You remind me of myself. I went around causing no end of trouble when I was young, too.
Li Shuwen: Take it from this old man. If you want to progress, it's not too late to–Ah, perhaps it is too late, since Servants don't grow or change?
Li Shuwen: Well, no matter. Even if what I tell you helps only in this conflict, it will still be of significance.
Li Shuwen: Take this as a chance to work on your swordplay. Rebuild your skills from the ground up.
Li Shuwen: Stop wasting time telling your opponents how much better than them you are. Instead simply demonstrate your superior strength and skill.
Li Shuwen: The task is the same, of course. But changing your approach will change how you feel about it.
Li Shuwen: Besides... It's fun to surpass one's own limits.
Fujimaru 1: ...You actually beat him.
Okita Alter: Yes... His skill with a spear was incredible. I'm still not quite sure how I did it.
Fujimaru 2: Alter... You seem a lot stronger now.
Okita Alter: ...Am I? It's hard for me to tell.
Okita Alter: ...Now that I think of it, I feel like I'm moving better after seeing that Saber fight.
Izo: ...Hey. This is as far as we go together.
Fujimaru 1: ...Izo.
Fujimaru 2: ...But
Okita Alter: ...Wait. I hate to say it...
Okita Alter: ...but your battle with that Lancer helped to weaken him.
Izo: ...Shut up. We're not friends, or allies, or even friendly acquaintances.
Izo: I had a job to do, and now it's done. We meet next as enemies, and I won't show you any mercy.
Okita Alter: ...
Section 6: Agreement
Major General Amami: ...So, the Lancer's territory is gone. That's a surprise.
Major General Amami: Do we know who took them out?
Officer: I'm afraid we can't say for certain, since it's enemy territory, but it seems the Assassin was involved.
Officer: Our last report said the Assassin suffered an injury before disappearing, and his whereabouts are currently unknown.
Major General Amami: Assassin... He must have ambushed the Lancer. A fitting tactic for an insignificant coward.
Major General Amami: Forget about him. An injured Assassin won't last long here.
Officer: Yes, sir!
Major General Amami: All right, I think it's time I made my own move.
Major General Amami: ...Rest assured, Lady Nobunaga, I've arranged things to be certain you have a grand old time.
Okita Alter: ...We're back.
Fujimaru 1: We're home.
Fujimaru 2: So...tired...
Ryouma: ...Hey there. Thanks for all the hard work.
Ryouma: Looks like your job went off without a hitch.
Okita Alter: What happened to you? You look beat up.
Oryou: Our job was pretty difficult. Not for Oryou, though.
Ryouma: I know, I know. I'm sorry I wasn't any help.
Ryouma: We ended up running into the Berserker, you see.
Ryouma: It wasn't easy, but we made it back here at least.
Da Vinci: Congrats on a job well done, Fujimaru. I'm glad to see everything's fine.
Da Vinci: We've also got confirmation that the Lancer's anchor is gone.
Fujimaru 1: Just the Lancer? What about the Berserker?
Ryouma: Sorry, he turned out to be kind of, uh, tough.
Ryouma: By the end, I was so beat up I couldn't make it to the anchor.
Ryouma: We'll go back there and get to it tomorrow.
Oryou: We spent the whole night at that park...
Oryou: Hmph. Oryou didn't even have time to catch any frogs, dammit.
Fujimaru 1: Thanks for taking care of that.
Fujimaru 2: It's fine. Don't worry about the frogs. Really.
Da Vinci: At any rate, the more anchors you get rid of, the easier it'll be for us.
Da Vinci: Destroying that anchor seems to have stabilized our connection, so keep it up and get rid of the rest of them.
Da Vinci: Well, so much for that stable connection...
Mash: Senpai, let me get right to the point! What is the nature of your relationship with that Oki–
Oryou: She wasn't kidding. That connection wasn't stable at all.
Ryouma: By the way, I don't see Izo around. Will he be back soon?
Fujimaru 1: Well...
Fujimaru 2: Actually...
Ryouma: ...I see. So that's what happened with your group.
Ryouma: Still, I'm glad he's not dead.
Ryouma: Izo's a lot more sensitive than you might think. It's best if we give him some space for now.
Oryou: If you have energy to worry about that, spend it worrying about Oryou instead.
Ryouma: Yes, yes, yes... I'm always worried about you, Oryou.
Oryou: Good. That's what Oryou likes to hear.
Okita Alter: ...You want him to worry?
Oda Nobunaga: ...So you're the Caster's messenger, huh.
Soldier: Thank you for seeing me. These are Caster's terms for cooperation.
Oda Nobunaga: ...Nobukatsu, read it.
Oda Nobukatsu: Yes, Sister!
Oda Nobunaga: Hey, I told you to call me “Lady Nobunaga” here. How many times have we been over this?
Oda Nobukatsu: Oh, r-right! I'm so sorry, Sis–Uh, Lady Nobunaga!
Oda Nobukatsu: Now, let's see what we've got...
Oda Nobukatsu: “We agree to refrain from attacking each other until all other Servants have been defeated.”
Oda Nobunaga: Hmph, I expected as much.
Oda Nobukatsu: It also says... Huh!?
Oda Nobunaga: What is it? Does he want me to hand over my gun or something?
Oda Nobukatsu: N-no, nothing like that...
Oda Nobukatsu: He says he'll let us have the Holy Grail once all the other Servants have been defeated.
Oda Nobunaga: ...What?
Oda Nobunaga: Does that mean Caster's forfeiting this war?
Soldier: Yes, ma'am... That's what I've been told.
Oda Nobukatsu: Sister... Something doesn't add up.
Oda Nobukatsu: Why's Caster even taking part in the Holy Grail War at all then?
Oda Nobunaga: I told you, call me Lady Nobunaga.
Oda Nobunaga: ...Hmm.
Oda Nobunaga: ...Tell Caster that I understand and accept his terms.
Soldier: Yes, ma'am! I'll be on my way then!
Oda Nobunaga: ...Hmph. It doesn't matter what he's thinking if I'm just going to kill him anyway.
Oda Nobukatsu: ...That's a good point. Boy, Sister, you don't play around when it comes to evil!
Oda Nobunaga: ...If you call me that again, it will be the last thing you ever say.
Ryouma: Okay, why don't we go over our next moves?
Ryouma: Now that the Lancer and Berserker are gone, that just leaves the Saber, Archer, and Caster.
Ryouma: I have a good idea where the Saber and Archer are thanks to Chaldea's data and my own investigation.
Ryouma: The Caster has built up and expanded his territory as well, though I still don't know where his base is.
Ryouma: And since members of that class are especially good at holing up in their own strongholds...
Ryouma: ...I don't think there's much we can do about him until he makes a move.
Oryou: So we're back to the Saber and Archer again.
Oryou: Which do you two want to deal with? Of course, Oryou can take both if you're afraid.
Okita Alter: ...The Saber.
Fujimaru 1: Alter...
Fujimaru 2: Okita's gonna be a tough opponent.
Okita Alter: I feel like I NEED to see that Saber again, Master.
Okita Alter: I don't know why, but I can't shake the feeling.
Ryouma: Good point...
Ryouma: If you really are another aspect of Okita, then you should see her again.
Ryouma: But, be careful.
Ryouma: Okita Souji was said to be the strongest of all the Shinsengumi...
Ryouma: ...the group of swordsmen so fearsome that they had all of Kyoto quaking during the Tokugawa's final days.
Fujimaru 1: Yeah, I, uh...I know them.
Fujimaru 2: I've met swordsmen as amazing as Okita before...
Ryouma: I was always wary of the Shinsengumi whenever I was in Kyoto. Just a hint of their pale blue haori was enough to make me turn around and go the other way.
Oryou: So Oryou just has to murder the Archer then.
Ryouma: That's a rather crude way to put it, but, yes, I suppose so.
Okita Alter: You two should be careful too. That Archer was frighteningly strong.
Oryou: Her? That dumb Archer's bullets aren't enough to even scratch Oryou.
Oryou: Just relax and let Oryou take care of her. This time, Oryou will even bring you back a frog.
Fujimaru 1: Let's all look out for each other.
Fujimaru 2: You really like frogs, don't you?
Oryou: All right, let's do this thing. Wanna light a signal fire to mark the occasion?
Ryouma: No, no. No need for that.
Ryouma: All right, good luck, you two.
Ryouma: ...And be warned, Okita really is strong.
Fujimaru 1: Let's get going, Alter!
Fujimaru 2: Let's go pay Okita a visit.
Okita Alter: ...Yes, Master.
Okita Alter: Let's go see this other me.
Section 7: Memory
Fujimaru 1: At least we didn't have any trouble getting here.
Fujimaru 2: ...It's pretty quiet, huh.
Okita Souji: So, you've come...
Okita Souji: Then let's get started.
Fujimaru 1: J-just like that!?
Fujimaru 2: You ARE Okita, aren't you?
Okita Souji: For an enemy, you're awfully familiar with me.
Okita Souji: But even if you do know who I am, this is a Holy Grail War.
Okita Souji: It'd be absurd to think the Okita Souji you know and the one standing before you are the same.
Okita Alter: ...I want to ask you something. ...Am I you?
Okita Souji: That's hard to say.
Okita Souji: I certainly never had a sword quite that...huge.
Okita Souji: ...But, as I said, this is a Holy Grail War. Maybe these sorts of things just happen.
Okita Souji: ... That's strange...
Okita Souji: I'm not usually so chatty before a duel.
Okita Alter: I get the same feeling.
Okita Alter: ...So let's just find out in battle.
Okita Souji: Very well...
Okita Souji: ...There is no right or wrong on the battlefield. There is only kill, or be killed.
Okita Alter: ...Let's do this!
Oda Nobunaga: Rider, huh... I'm impressed you plowed through my army so easily.
Sakamoto Ryouma: Nothing easy about it. Those weird little things are surprisingly tough.
Sakamoto Ryouma: Is it your territory that lets you make them?
Sakamoto Ryouma: ...Lady Oda Nobunaga. The Demon King of the Sixth Heaven.
Sakamoto Ryouma: Facing you in person, I can see exactly why you dominated the Warring States period.
Oda Nobunaga: Hmph. Spare me your hollow flattery.
Oda Nobunaga: What is it you want, Rider?
Oda Nobunaga: Depending on what it is, it may not be necessary for us to fight.
Sakamoto Ryouma: If only that were the case.
Sakamoto Ryouma: But I'm afraid what I want is your head, Lady Nobunaga. Figuratively speaking.
Oda Nobunaga: My head?
Sakamoto Ryouma: That's right. I've been investigating for a while, and everything I've found points to you being the key to this Holy Grail War.
Oda Nobunaga: Hmm... Does this mean you're forfeiting the war too, Rider?
Oda Nobunaga: Are you giving up on your wish for the Holy Grail?
Sakamoto Ryouma: Well, as it turns out...the real Rider is long gone by now.
Oryou: Oryou got rid of him.
Oda Nobunaga: ...What?
Sakamoto Ryouma: I was never truly part of this Holy Grail War to begin with.
Sakamoto Ryouma: ...I'm only here because the world itself called to me.
Oda Nobunaga: What? Then, you mean you're part of the Counter Force...?
Oda Nobunaga: Wahahahaha! This is great! I've made an enemy of the world itself!
Sakamoto Ryouma: Anyway, that's where things stand.
Oda Nobunaga: Then I suppose we do have to fight.
Oda Nobunaga: Fine then. Once I defeat you, I'll be able to widen my sphere of influence even further.
Sakamoto Ryouma: ...Let's do this, Oryou! I'm going to use my Noble Phantasm!
Oryou: Don't worry. Oryou will snap a little twig like this in no time.
Oda Nobunaga: So, you've chosen to go on the offensive right out of the gate.
Sakamoto Ryouma: Orochi of the earth, sealed by the Amasakahoko...
Oda Nobunaga: Oho. I knew it. That woman's your Noble Phantasm!
Sakamoto Ryouma: Here I come, Demon King of the Sixth Heaven!
Sakamoto Ryouma: Like a Dragon Soaring Through the Heavens... Amakakeru Ryu ga Gotoku!
Oda Nobunaga: Ha! A dragon, eh. Fascinating!
Oda Nobunaga: But nothing can withstand my Three Line Formation!
Okita Souji: A swordsman's blade must be swift and sharp!
Okita Alter: ...Wha!?
Okita Souji: ...Too slow!
Okita Souji: Don't just step in with your feet!
Okita Souji: You need to call upon all your own strength to face your opponent!
Okita Alter: ...What the?
F：???: ...There's nothing that can be done for this baby. She was probably born too prematurely.
F：???: Her skin's dirt brown, and she's barely even breathing.
G：???: Please... Isn't there anything you can do?
F：???: Forget her, Mitsu. She'll be lucky if she lasts even a day or two.
F：???: At this point, all you can do is pray to the Buddha.
Okita Souji: You're swinging your sword from your wrist! The power should come from your waist!
Okita Alter: ...Ghh! I...!
Mitsu: ...Please, Buddha! I beg of you. Please, save Soujirou.
Okita Alter: ...
Mitsu: Please... I beg you. I just know they'll grow up to do good as long as there's a chance...
Mitsu: Please, save Soujirou.
Okita Alter: ...Very well.
Okita Alter: At one point in that child's life...
Okita Alter: ...she will form a pact with me, just once.
Okita Alter: When she does, I shall take her body from the world.
Okita Souji: ...Are you an idiot or something!?
Okita Souji: Our swords may look different, but they're supposed to be used identically!
Okita Alter: I know that! Just a little more, and I'll catch up!
Okita Alter: ...Now I see. I'm a manifestation of the Counter Force that was brought here to repay this debt...
Okita Souji: ...What!? How are you matching my speed with such a huge blade!?
Okita Alter: ...There. I caught up.
Okita Alter: ...And I remember now. I was right. I am you.
Okita Souji: ...It's too soon to say that for sure. This duel isn't over yet.
Fujimaru 1: You've been fighting for a while...
Fujimaru 2: Endurance matches aren't your strong suit, Okita!
Okita Souji: I don't know what you're expecting, but if you're waiting for my magical energy to run out, don't bother.
Okita Souji: As long as I'm in my territory, that will never happen.
Okita Souji: Not even the cursed disease that plagues my body can slow me down here.
Okita Souji: That...is the power my territory gives me.
Fujimaru 1: R-really...!?
Fujimaru 2: Then, that would make you Perfect Okita!
Okita Alter: Good. That is how it should be. I need to reclaim my identity!
Okita Alter: Come on! I'll end this with my next strike!
Okita Souji: All right... In that case, I'll fight you with everything I've got.
C：Okita Souji: I am Okita Souji, Captain of the Shinsengumi's First Unit!
C：Okita Souji: ...Prepare to face the power of my secret technique!
Okita Souji: ...
Okita Souji: Good grief. It's so strange, having another me around.
Okita Alter: ...You could have cut me down at any time. Why didn't you?
Fujimaru 1: Okita... Were you...
Fujimaru 2: Were you trying to train Alter?
Okita Souji: I don't know what you're talking about.
Okita Souji: I'm just a man-slayer summoned by the Holy Grail. All I've done here is kill people left and right.
Okita Souji: Nothing has changed. I cut down my enemies when I was alive, and I've done the same as a Servant. It was enough to make me forget why I was alive at all.
Okita Souji: ...That's why I ended up pawning my debt off onto you.
Okita Alter: ...
Okita Souji: ...Here. Take this with you.
C：Okita Alter: This is...your Noble Phantasm...?
D：Okita Souji: You have someone of your own to protect.
D：Okita Souji: I failed to do that when I was still alive. Maybe I should have found a way, but I didn't.
C：Okita Alter: ...
D：Okita Souji: You're the person I should have been. Now, it's time for me to say goodbye.
D：Okita Souji: And, please...apologize to the Buddha for me. Tell him I'm sorry I ended up living only for myself.
D：Okita Souji: ...As for you.
D：Okita Souji: I hope you can watch over this other me...at least until her time comes.
Fujimaru 1: Okita...
Fujimaru 2: Alter... What was Okita talking about...?
C：Okita Alter: ...I remember now what it is I must do, Master.
C：Okita Alter: Let's go back. The time is nearly at hand.
C：Okita Alter: ...It's time...for all this to end.
Section 8: Tenkai
Oda Nobunaga: ...I never thought I'd have to unleash my killer demon like this.
Oda Nobunaga: Your Noble Phantasm really is like a dragon soaring through the heavens...
Oda Nobunaga: But...that's also why it won't work on me.
Ryouma: I can't believe it... I never imagined you would be this far gone.
Ryouma: Oda Nobunaga, Demon King of the Sixth Heaven...
Oryou: ...Oryou's sorry, Ryouma.
Oryou: Oryou failed to keep you safe again...
Ryouma: Thank you, Oryou.
Ryouma: You should have ascended to the heavens without worrying about me...
Oda Nobunaga: ...Have you finished your goodbyes? ...Then it looks like this is it, Hero of the Meiji Restoration.
Oda Nobunaga: I'm going to destroy this world, and move on to the next.
Ryouma: ...Well, I don't know about that. Now that I've faced you directly, there's one thing I know for sure.
Ryouma: ...As I suspected, you aren't yourself, Lady Nobunaga.
Oda Nobunaga: What was that? What do you mean, Rider?
B：Ryouma: ...So now, my work here is done. From here on, someone else will have to...handle this...
Oda Nobunaga: I'm...not myself...?
Major General Amami: Well done, Lady Nobunaga. I knew you would stand head and shoulders above the rest of this rabble of Heroic Spirits.
Oda Nobunaga: ...Who are you?
Major General Amami: Who am I? What a cruel thing to say. We just signed a treaty mere hours ago, remember?
Oda Nobunaga: So you're the Caster. Now I see. With Rider dead, and the tide of this war turning in my favor...
Oda Nobunaga: ...you realized you were nearly out of time to ambush me, and hurried here before missing your opportunity.
Major General Amami: Yes, I am a Caster. My True Name is Nankoubou Tenkai. It was my idea to build this Imperial Capital with the goal of keeping the Tokugawa dynasty safe.
Oda Nobunaga: So you're Takechiyo's man...? Hmph, never heard of you.
Oda Nobunaga: Well, no matter. This saves me the trouble of hunting you down.
E：Nankoubou Tenkai: Now, now, Lady Nobunaga, are you quite certain you don't remember me? Perhaps it would help if I took off these sunglasses.
Oda Nobunaga: ...You!?
Nankoubou Tenkai: It's been a long time, my lord...Lady Oda Kazusa-no-Suke Nobunaga!
Oda Nobunaga: ...What's the meaning of this? What are you even doing here!?
Oda Nobunaga: ...!?
Oda Nobunaga: What the...!?
Oda Nobunaga: ...I can't move!
Nankoubou Tenkai: I already have you in the palm of my hand, Lady Nobunaga. Just like back at Honnoji!
Oda Nobunaga: ...Ah, now I see. “Nankoubou Tenkai” was just a cover... And you rule this land...?
Nankoubou Tenkai: I knew you would catch on quickly, Lady Nobunaga. Indeed, this entire Imperial Capital is my territory.
Nankoubou Tenkai: Compared to the power I have amassed, the fights among you other Servants have just been little scuffles and brawls.
Nankoubou Tenkai: With each Holy Grail War, my territory collects new Spirit Origins...
Nankoubou Tenkai: This is my territory...
Nankoubou Tenkai: ...The Imperial Capital of the gods!
Oda Nobunaga: ...So this entire Imperial Capital is your territory, huh!?
Nankoubou Tenkai: I have waited a long time for this day. A very...very long time.
Nankoubou Tenkai: This is why I fled from that man, curried favor with the Tokugawa family, and have been biding my time for three centuries.
Nankoubou Tenkai: Now, at last, the true Lady Nobunaga will return!
Oda Nobunaga: ...Mitsuhideee! You bastard!
Nankoubou Tenkai: ...Good. Take her away.
Soldier: Yes, sir!
Nankoubou Tenkai: Now, I have the Holy Grail, Lady Nobunaga's Spirit Origin, and the souls of the countless Heroic Spirits that have come to this land.
Nankoubou Tenkai: At last, my wish will be granted!
Nankoubou Tenkai: Hehehe... Hahahahahaha...!
Nankoubou Tenkai: Haaahahahahahahahahaha!
Oda Nobukatsu: ...
Fujimaru 1: We're back.
Fujimaru 2: I hope Sakamoto's okay.
Oda Nobukatsu: Ah, there you are, Fujimaru.
Fujimaru 1: Huh?
Fujimaru 2: Nobukatsu...!?
D：Oda Nobukatsu: Come on, Sister, don't just pop up out of nowhere like that. You're scaring them.
Oda Nobukatsu?: Right, right, sorry. It's just that your body is so suffocating it's hard to get comfortable in here.
D：Oda Nobukatsu: Well, what do you expect? We're two different people sharing the same Spirit Origin.
Fujimaru 1: What are you... WHAT?
Fujimaru 2: So, you're Nobukatsu and Nobbu?
Okita Alter: ...What is this person, Master?
D：Oda Nobukatsu: Long time no see! You're my sister's–
D：Oda Nobukatsu?: Shut it, Nobukatsu. I'll do the talking.
D：Oda Nobukatsu?: Oh, hey Okita, I didn't know you were here too. You look different though... Did you do something with your hair?
D：Oda Nobukatsu?: ...And your...skin?
Fujimaru 1: Nobbu? Is that you?
Fujimaru 2: Yeeeah... Now it feels like GUDAGUDA...
D：Oda Nobukatsu?: Well, you could say that, and you could also NOT say that.
D：Oda Nobukatsu?: Look, just hear me out.
Oda Nobukatsu (with Nobbu): Basically, Fujimaru...
Oda Nobukatsu (with Nobbu): ...the Holy Grail summoned both me and you here at the same time.
Oda Nobukatsu (with Nobbu): Well, more like it tied me down to it, really.
Fujimaru 1: Tied you down to it?
Fujimaru 2: Then, did that happen to Okita too?
Oda Nobukatsu (with Nobbu): Yep. Normally, my Spirit Origin would've been made into the Holy Grail's Servant...
Oda Nobukatsu (with Nobbu): ...and I would've been forced to do its bidding.
Oda Nobukatsu (with Nobbu): But right before I was Servantized, I cut off a bit of my Spirit Origin to prevent that.
Fujimaru 1: I didn't know that was a thing you could do.
Fujimaru 2: Yikes...
Oda Nobukatsu (with Nobbu): Usually that sort of thing would be impossible.
Oda Nobukatsu (with Nobbu): But after everything that transpired last time, Nobukatsu happened to be inscribed near my own Spirit Origin.
Oda Nobukatsu (with Nobbu): I therefore rented out a bit of space in his Spirit Origin so I could manifest, too!
D：Oda Nobukatsu: Usually, my Spirit Origin would be too weak to materialize at all...
D：Oda Nobukatsu: ...but I managed to pull it off after adding Sister's to my own.
Oda Nobukatsu (with Nobbu): Still, this was an all-star team technique. It only worked because Nobukatsu and I are actual siblings.
Oda Nobukatsu (with Nobbu): That said, this Spirit Origin is a little small for me, so it's kind of cramped in here. Can't do anything about that, though!
Oda Nobukatsu (with Nobbu): Anyway, I've been here biding my time seeing how things would play out ever since.
Da Vinci: Are you kidding me? What kind of plot twist is that?
Mash: Long time no see, Senpai!
Mash: So, about that Okita who isn't like Oki–
Da Vinci: Sorry Mash, but this is urgent.
Da Vinci: I am intrigued by the idea of housing two personalities in one Spirit Origin...but, yes, this is definitely more important.
Da Vinci: I figured out the structure of that Singularity...or rather, why it was made in the first place.
Da Vinci: Listen closely. That entire area is designed to collect Servants and produce pure Spirit Origins.
Da Vinci: It's more like a magical circuit used for magecraft rituals than anything else.
Fujimaru 1: It collects Servants?
Fujimaru 2: Pure Spirit Origins?
Oda Nobukatsu (with Nobbu): Now I see... It's a kodoku.
D：Oda Nobukatsu: You know about it, Sister!?
Da Vinci: Hmm, interesting. A kodoku is old Eastern magecraft that involves filling a pot with venomous snakes or insects and having them kill each other.
Da Vinci: The mage then uses the fluids of the one creature that survived to cast a curse. What an excellent analogy.
Oda Nobukatsu (with Nobbu): Basically, whoever's behind this is having Servants kill each other to get their hands on extremely pure Spirit Origins.
Oda Nobukatsu (with Nobbu): That's why they needed a Holy Grail War with so many different Servants fighting each other.
Da Vinci: And if that wasn't bad enough, from what we've observed, they've actually conducted a great many Holy Grail Wars there.
Fujimaru 1: How many is a great many?
Fujimaru 2: For a long time now?
Da Vinci: I can't say for sure, but I'm pretty sure that since the whole place was carved out of history...
Da Vinci: ...it's been host to Holy Grail War after Holy Grail War in order to keep collecting Spirit Origins.
Da Vinci: Even if he IS taking advantage of the Holy Grail's power...
Da Vinci: ...the sheer planning, preparation, and time it would take to pull that off is insane.
Oda Nobukatsu (with Nobbu): ...Maybe, but I wouldn't put it past that kumquat.
Fujimaru 1: Kumquat?
Fujimaru 2: Isn't that your
Da Vinci: Now that he's come this far, that Caster must be planning something pretty outrageous.
Ryouma: ...Now I see. So that's how we ended up out here.
Okita Alter: ...Rider. I see you're all right.
Ryouma: Yup! Thanks to Lady Nobunaga's...kid brother?
Fujimaru 1: What a relief...
Fujimaru 2: Where's Oryou?
Oryou: Sorry. Oryou's still trying to live the whole thing down.
Ryouma: Oryou's actually my Noble Phantasm, you see. Once I was back up to snuff, she was able to maintain her form again.
Ryouma: Things don't usually go this well, but it looks like these are special circumstances.
Oryou: All that posturing you did when we said goodbye, and now look at us. This is so embarrassing. Oryou wishes she could just crawl into a water hole and die.
Oda Nobukatsu (with Nobbu): Well, I can't exactly take advantage of my power in Nobukatsu's body anyway. Rider may be an especially weak Heroic Spirit, but he's better than nothing.
Ryouma: Haha, you've got me there.
Ryouma: Still, I'm hardly the only one. Compared to you, Lady Nobunaga, almost every Heroic Spirit here is third-rate at best.
Da Vinci: All the same, we still have to do something about the Caster's plot...
Da Vinci: ...or Fujimaru will never be able to get back home.
Oda Nobukatsu (with Nobbu): Then there's only one thing to do.
Oda Nobukatsu (with Nobbu): We grind that kumquat–I mean, Caster's plans into the dirt...
Oda Nobukatsu (with Nobbu): ...and go back to Chaldea like the badasses we are.
Okita Alter: True. If we can stop him, then Master can go home.
Fujimaru 1: Then what are we waiting for!
Fujimaru 2: We can do this if we all work together!
Izo: ...Hey. I'm coming too.
Fujimaru 1: Izo? Is that you?
Fujimaru 2: Do I know you?
Ryouma: Izo... That's the outfit you wore during–
Izo: I'm not doing this for you. I just don't like being anyone's pawn.
Izo: I don't know who this Caster thinks he is, but nobody pulls my strings and gets away with it.
Oryou: Come on, Ryouma, we don't need him, do we?
Ryouma: ...We can absolutely use him. Izo is worth a hundred ordinary soldiers.
Izo: ...Hmph. So, do you know where this Caster is?
Oda Nobukatsu (with Nobbu): I've got a decent idea, but I don't have his exact whereabouts just yet. But you can fix that, can't you, Assassin?
Izo: You bet. If there's a Servant in their territory, I can find them no problem.
Okita Alter: ...Let's go, Master. I have a feeling this is why I'm here.
Fujimaru 1: All right, let's go!
Fujimaru 2: Alter...
Mash: Please take good care of Senpai, Alter!
Mash: ...Phew! I finally got to say it.
Okita Alter: ...
Okita Alter: ...Mash, right?
Mash: Yes! I'm Mash Kyrielight! Uh... Your name is Alter, right?
Okita Alter: Yes. Don't worry. I'll make sure to protect Master in your stead.
Mash: Thank you so much!
Ryouma: All right then, it looks like all the players are in place.
Oda Nobukatsu (with Nobbu): Talk about a motley crew.
Oda Nobukatsu (with Nobbu): ...But, at least things are finally getting interesting!
Oda Nobukatsu (with Nobbu): Don't you think, Fujimaru!?
Section 9: Rushing In
Alarm: Intruder alert, intruder alert.
Alarm: Enemy Servants detected. All Heroic Spirit Soldiers to your positions.
Izo: Out of my waaay!
Officer: Our guns aren't working on them! Get the Heroic Spirit Soldiers! Overwhelm them with sheer numbers!
C：Nobukatsu (with Nobbu): How can there be this many of them!? It's too narrow here for so many! This is just like Okehazama!
C：Nobukatsu (with Nobbu): And what the hell are Heroic Spirit Soldiers, anyway!?
Ryouma: They're artificial soldiers made from the Spirit Origins they've collected from Heroic Spirits.
Ryouma: In Western terms, they're basically golems.
Ryouma: Of course, they can't hold a candle to Servants individually, but there are enough of them that they don't really need to.
Oda Nobukatsu (with Nobbu): Grr, if I only had my own body, I could wipe these things out in an instant! Argh, this is so frustrating!
Okita Alter: ...We'll never get anywhere like this.
Ryouma: Looks like we'll have to handle this ourselves. The rest of you, go on ahead.
Fujimaru 1: But, Sakamoto...
Fujimaru 2: I know we've got to do something, but...
Ryouma: Don't worry about me. My wounds are all healed, and I've got Oryou AND Izo with me.
Ryouma: How about it, Izo? Would you mind helping me out again?
Izo: I never agreed to that! I'm only here to cut down that Caster!
Izo: If you're just stalling for time, Ryouma, then do it yourself!
Oryou: You're only good for taking out weaklings anyway. Trim their numbers before you die so Oryou can finish the job.
Izo: What was that? You want to die first, snake-woman?
Ryouma: Ahahaha... Please, Izo? I could really use your help.
Izo: Tch, fine! Just go stand in a corner or something so you don't get in my way!
Oda Nobukatsu (with Nobbu): Let's go, Fujimaru!
Oda Nobukatsu (with Nobbu): Rider's Noble Phantasm is no joke. Having an ordinary human like you around'll just make it harder for him!
Fujimaru 1: ...All right!
Fujimaru 2: ...Be careful!
Okita Alter: I'm sorry to leave this all up to you, Rider. ...Thank you.
Oda Nobukatsu (with Nobbu): ...Sorry to leave you like this, Rider.
Ryouma: ...So they saw right through us, huh? I wonder if [♂ he /♀ she] noticed as well?
Izo: Hey, Oryou... You can barely move at all anymore, can you?
Oryou: Boo. Oryou can't believe the stupid weak Assassin saw through us. That is going to be a painful memory for the rest of Oryou's life.
Ryouma: Well, I have been pushing too hard for a while now... Guess it's about time for me to hang up my hat.
Izo: Ryouma!!! Don't you even start with that nonsense!
Izo: What happened to the man who left us behind at Tosa!?
Ryouma: Haha... You really got me there.
Oryou: Oryou still doesn't like you, but Oryou will forgive you this once.
Oryou: Oryou is as kind as the Inland Sea.
Officer: Go after the ones who ran off ahead! We can take care of these fools lat–
Izo: Don't ignore me, fool. I've killed everyone who's ever tried.
Izo: ...My name is Izo, the man-slayer of Tosa! ALL of you will die here!
Oryou: Well, what do you know. Guess Izo isn't worthless after all.
Ryouma: Of course not. After all...
Ryouma: ...he's a genius swordsman!
Fujimaru 1: What is that...!?
Fujimaru 2: Is that the Holy Grail?
Nankoubou Tenkai: Hm? What are you lot doing here? I don't see Rider with you...
Okita Alter: So you're the Caster.
Nankoubou Tenkai: ...How odd. The Three Knight Class Servants are all down, and both Rider and Assassin will be soon.
Nankoubou Tenkai: Who are you...?
Okita Alter: ...
Nankoubou Tenkai: Well, it doesn't matter. You're too late.
Nankoubou Tenkai: Take a look. This is the mass of Heroic Spirits I have accumulated over countless years.
Nankoubou Tenkai: This is Lady Nobunaga's Spirit Origin, and the Holy Grail, now both within my grasp!
Nankoubou Tenkai: At last...the true Lady Oda Kazusa-no-Suke Nobunaga will be reborn!
Fujimaru 1: What does that mean?
Fujimaru 2: Didn't you kill Nobunaga yourself?
Nankoubou Tenkai: ...Yes, of course I did. But I had no other choice.
Nankoubou Tenkai: He is the one who stopped Lady Nobunaga from truly being Lady Nobunaga...
Fujimaru 1: You lost me...
Fujimaru 2: ...“He”?
Nankoubou Tenkai: That's right! It was all that ape's fault!
Nankoubou Tenkai: Lady Nobunaga stopped being Lady Nobunaga right after he showed up!
Nankoubou Tenkai: Lady Nobunaga was MY light! MY salvation! She was everything to me!
Nankoubou Tenkai: I gave everything I had to her! Everything!
Nankoubou Tenkai: I even offered up my own mother to her without a second thought! And yet, she only smiled at him, never at me! Why!?
Okita Alter: ...
Nankoubou Tenkai: Lady Nobunaga was mine and mine alone... I was the only one who ever understood her!
Nankoubou Tenkai: I had to be the only one who understood her!
Nankoubou Tenkai: She had no right to go around sharing her dreams of world domination with anyone but me!
Okita Alter: ...This man...
Akechi Mitsuhide: ...So I killed her.
Fujimaru 1: ...How could you do that?
Fujimaru 2: ...You're mad.
Akechi Mitsuhide: I had no other choice, Lady Nobunaga. Everything I did, I did for you!
Akechi Mitsuhide: That ape could never hope to rule all of Japan!
Akechi Mitsuhide: That's why he failed so miserably! That's why he lost everything before dying a pitiful death!
Akechi Mitsuhide: But worry not! None but Lady Nobunaga can ever rule Japan!
Akechi Mitsuhide: Yes! Lady Nobunaga! MY Lady Nobunaga! Now, hear me, Holy Grail! Hear me, Heroic Spirits!
Akechi Mitsuhide: Bring forth Lady Nobunaga...MY Lady Nobunaga...!
C：Oda Nobunaga: Ugh... How dull.
Akechi Mitsuhide: ...Huh?
C：Oda Nobunaga: You bore me, Kumquat...
Akechi Mitsuhide: Who are you...?
C：Oda Nobunaga: Don't get me wrong, your scheme isn't terrible. It gets full marks for scale, and I actually like the whole mood you've got going here.
Akechi Mitsuhide: What are you–Wait. You're...
C：Oda Nobunaga: But why do you have to bring me into it?
Akechi Mitsuhide: It can't be... Lady Nobunaga?
C：Oda Nobunaga: If you're going to do this, you might as well finish it yourself. That's always been your worst flaw.
Akechi Mitsuhide: ...Wh-what are you saying?
C：Oda Nobunaga: ...I can see right through you, Kumquat. You were terrified of a world without me, weren't you?
Akechi Mitsuhide: ...What?
C：Oda Nobunaga: Even though you killed me yourself, just the thought of going on without me petrified you.
C：Oda Nobunaga: ...That's the difference between you and Monkey.
Akechi Mitsuhide: ...Difference?
C：Oda Nobunaga: When I died, he didn't waste his time thinking about a world without me. He thought only of a world in which he was dominant.
Akechi Mitsuhide: Shut up...
C：Oda Nobunaga: You didn't lose to him.
C：Oda Nobunaga: You lost to your own fears.
Akechi Mitsuhide: Shut up...!
Akechi Mitsuhide: What would you know of Lady Nobunaga!?
C：Oda Nobukatsu: Um, can I say something too, Sister?
C：Oda Nobukatsu: Honestly, after hearing all that, I'm kind of ticked off!
C：Oda Nobukatsu: I don't know who this guy is...
C：Oda Nobukatsu: ...but no one understands you better than I do!
Fujimaru 1: Uh...
Fujimaru 2: Should've seen that coming.
C：Oda Nobunaga: Don't interrupt me, you idiot!
C：Oda Nobunaga: At any rate, you don't get to use my body. It's time for you to give it back, Mitsuhide.
Akechi Mitsuhide: ...Never mind. I don't care who you are anymore.
Akechi Mitsuhide: Not when my own Lady Nobunaga is about to be born!
Akechi Mitsuhide: Heroic Spirit Soldiers! Eliminate these fools!
G：Heroic Spirit Soldier: ...!
C：Oda Nobunaga: Hmm, it seems I went on a little too long.
C：Oda Nobunaga: I only meant to scope the scene out, but Kumquat's little speech pissed me off so much, I just had to say something.
Okita Alter: ...We should have attacked while he was talking. I think that's what that Saber would have done.
Fujimaru 1: We'll just have to take these Heroic Spirit Soldiers out!
Fujimaru 2: Oh, yeah, good point.
Okita Alter: ...Okay, Master, let's go!
Izo: ...Well? Still alive?
Ryouma: ...How about you, Izo? You're looking pretty sliced up from where I stand.
Izo: I'm still doing better than you, idiot.
Izo: I was in a really foul mood today, so all this bloodshed is exactly what I needed to let off some steam.
Izo: This worked out great for me.
Oryou: Hey, Izo, do you see any frogs anywhere? Oryou can't move anymore.
Officer: ...Even if they are just delaying the inevitable, I can't believe how many Heroic Spirit Soldiers these three defeated...
Izo: Dammit, this ALWAYS happens whenever I let you sweet talk me into something! I KNEW I should've gone and killed the Caster myself.
Ryouma: Haha... Sorry, Izo.
Officer: ...Kill them.
Heroic Spirit Soldier: ...!
Izo: ...I can't even lift my arms anymore. Hey, Oryou, hurry up and turn into a dragon or something.
Oryou: Shut up, Izo, or Oryou will have you for a snack.
Izo: Hmph. Guess this is it.
Ryouma: ...Nope. Perfect timing, as always.
Officer: Wh-what was that!? What's going on!?
H：???: ...Hey, you.
H：???: ...Are you with Satsuma, or Choushu?
Section 10: Advent
Heroic Spirit Soldier: ...!?
Okita Alter: (...Huff, huff) That's all of them.
Mitsuhide: ...Hmm. You are powerful, but you don't seem to be any of the normal Servant classes.
Mitsuhide: Who are you?
Okita Alter: ...I am another aspect of Okita Souji. I am her Alter Ego.
Okita Alter: And I have come here to defeat you.
Mitsuhide: An Alter Ego...? What is that? That class doesn't exist in Holy Grail Wars.
Mitsuhide: Hmm... At first I thought he might have sent you, but that seems extremely unlikely now.
Mitsuhide: Well, no matter. You'll die as easily as the rest of the rabble.
Heroic Spirit Soldier: ...!
Nobunaga: ...Well this sucks. I didn't expect you to be this weak. Are you sure you're Okita's Alter?
Nobunaga: I'm fairly sure the real Okita would've done at least a little better than this.
Fujimaru 1: Yes, she's really Okita's Alter!
Fujimaru 2: Even Okita herself said she was!
Mitsuhide: ...Kill them.
Nobunaga: Hmm. This could be the tightest spot I've been in since the Nobunaga Siege.
Okita Alter: ...
Hijikata: ...Hmm, so this is the place.
Fujimaru 1: Hijikata...?
Fujimaru 2: Vice Commander...!
Hijikata: ...What is it, Fujimaru? Why are you staring at me like that?
Okita Alter: You're...
Hijikata: ...Oh, Okita.
Hijikata: That form... I see.
Mitsuhide: ...The Berserker!?
Ryouma: Hey guys. Glad to see you're all okay.
Fujimaru 1: You too, Sakamoto!
Oryou: Yaaay. Oryou's here too.
Fujimaru 2: You too, Oryou!
Ryouma: Yup, we're fine. All thanks to the Demon Vice Commander here.
Okita Alter: What's going on? I thought you'd defeated the Berserker.
Ryouma: Hm? Is that what I said?
Oryou: What's with this guy? His fighting style's all over the place, but he's very strong. Oryou's shocked.
Ryouma: ...Well this sucks. We'll never be able to show our faces to Okita if this Berserker kills us now.
Hijikata: ...Hm? Hey, you. Did you just say “Okita”?
Ryouma: ...I did! Specifically, Okita Souji, Captain of the Shinsengumi's First Unit.
Hijikata: ...Let me ask you something. Don't worry, I won't kill you before you answer.
Ryouma: ...Wait a second. Does this mean you're not under the Holy Grail's control?
Hijikata: ...Only I give me orders. Now shut up and answer my question!
Ryouma: Well now, this is a surprise... I'm impressed.
Ryouma: Not even a Holy Grail can sway the Demon Vice Commander of the Shinsengumi. Who would have thought.
Ryouma: I don't think I've ever seen any Heroic Spirit with such incredible willpower. No wonder you're the Berserker of the Shogunate's end.
Ryouma: ...There you have it. We ended up calling a temporary truce.
Fujimaru 1: Why didn't you just tell us?
Oryou: For the record, Oryou was against that truce.
Fujimaru 2: Not cool, sitting on this up till now...
Ryouma: Haha, I used to get that a lot when I was still alive.
Okita Alter: Berserker... You can tell that I'm Okita?
Hijikata: What're you babbling on about, Okita!?
Hijikata: Swords are meant for stabbing and slicing! Quit wasting time dwelling on pointless concerns!
Hijikata: Cut them up! Advance!
Mitsuhide: ...The Berserker and the Rider? What's going on? Why are all the losers from the Grail War gathering here?
Ryouma: Oh, putting together ragtag groups has always been a skill of mine. You'd be surprised how well people of differing philosophies can come together.
Ryouma: Hmm, the Satchou Alliance was last year's news. How about we call ourselves... the OdaShinsengumiTosa Alliance?
Oryou: No. Too long.
Mitsuhide: What do you think you're doing!? Get these idiots!
Izo: ...Divine punishment.
Izo: You shouldn't have forgotten about me, Caster...
Mitsuhide: You're...the Assassin!?
Izo: Hmph, easiest job I ever did in my life.
Mitsuhide: You... You're just a simple man-slayer!!!
B：Nobukatsu: ...Sister! Now's your chance!
Nobunaga: I know that! Come on, can't this body of yours run any faster!?
B：Nobukatsu: ...We did it! We got your body back, Sister!
Nobunaga: ...Hey, that's me! You're over here, right!?
Nobukatsu: Really? Are you sure?
Nobunaga: Just get out of here already!
Nobunaga (True Nobbu): ...Phew. Feels good to be me again.
Nobunaga (True Nobbu): Mitsuhide... You've sure caused me a lot of trouble.
Mitsuhide: L-Lady Nobunaga...
Mitsuhide: ...What's going on? Why is everyone meddling in my plans!? This is exactly what happened back then!
Mitsuhide: Instead of listening to MY plans for absolute domination, a bunch of fools were deceived by a greater fool who was nothing but talk, preventing me from completing my plans!
Mitsuhide: Why!? Why won't anyone listen to me!?
F：Nobunaga: ...I don't know if you'll ever understand, Mitsuhide.
F：Nobunaga: ...No matter. It's time to bring this to an end.
Mitsuhide: ...I see. So even you have turned your back on me, Lady Nobunaga.
Mitsuhide: Hehe... Hahahahaha!
Mitsuhide: Very well then! If you too refuse to accept my vision of Lady Nobunaga, how I imagined her...
Mitsuhide: ...then I shall become the true Lady Nobunaga myself!
Fujimaru 1: What the...!?
Fujimaru 2: The Holy Grail...!?
Ryouma: When did he get his hands on that...!?
Mitsuhide: Yes... Yes! I am the only one fit to be Lady Nobunaga...!
Mitsuhide: I am the only one who understands her...who can kill her...who can save her!
Izo: Hey! What is that sludge!?
Ryouma: Izo, get back! Don't go getting any of that stuff on you!
Mitsuhide: Lady Nobunaga is my light...my guide...my everything!
Mitsuhide: Hehehe... Hahaha... HAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
Hijikata: Oh no you don't!!!
Hijikata: ...What's that thing made of!?
Demon King of the Sixth Heaven - Akechi Mitsuhide: MWAHAHAHAHAHA! Yes, yes! I am the one, the true, Lady Nobunaga...!
Demon King of the Sixth Heaven - Akechi Mitsuhide: I am the god who will grant mankind salvation... I am Oda Nobunaga, Demon King of the Sixth Heaven! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!
F：Nobunaga: Grr... What is this!? How're you going to act more like me than me!? There's only one me, Kumquat!
B：Nobukatsu: Uh, Sister, I don't think that's our most pressing concern right–Aaah! The mud is at my feet now!
Ryouma: This is bad... Just how many Servants' Spirit Origins did Caster fill the Holy Grail with?
Ryouma: ...He's going to end up becoming something on par with a Divine Spirit!
Fujimaru 1: We've gotta do something!
Fujimaru 2: We've gotta find a way to stop him!
Izo: It's no good. Nothing's working on him, Ryouma!
Ryouma: Well this is a pretty pickle. I don't suppose you've got any tricks up your sleeve, do you, Lady Nobunaga?
Nobunaga: If I hadn't had to fight you first, I could've wiped the floor with this idiot!
Nobunaga: But I can only pull out my killer demon so many times. What about that dragon of yours? Can't she do something?
Oryou: Oryou's wiped. Just between us, it's a miracle Oryou's still here after turning into a dragon.
Hijikata: ...Don't you go wimping out now. This battle's not over while any of the Shinsengumi still live!
Demon King of the Sixth Heaven - Akechi Mitsuhide: MWAHAHAHAHAHA! I knew it! I knew you were a fake! I'M the real Lady Nobunaga!
Demon King of the Sixth Heaven - Akechi Mitsuhide: Now, bow down before me! Kneel before the true Demon King of the Sixth Heaven!
Fujimaru 1: Isn't there anything we can do!?
Fujimaru 2: ...There must be SOME way to win!
Okita Alter: Try to do something about the Holy Grail in his chest.
Okita Alter: ...I'll handle the rest.
Izo: You? Don't be ridiculous! All of us working together couldn't hold a candle to him!
Izo: What could you possibly do all by yourself!?
Ryouma: All right. I wish I could have helped you out myself... Oryou, can I ask you to fight one more time?
Oryou: Hmph, lucky for you Oryou still had one last secret frog. Oryou can go at least one more time with this.
Izo: Are you ALL idiots!?
Hijikata: We don't need your whining. If you're not going to help, then get out of the way. Okita, you'd better live up to all that talk.
Okita Alter: ...Hijikata. I remember now. You're Hijikata Toshizo. And, the Shinsengumi was my...
Fujimaru 1: Alter...?
Fujimaru 2: Okita...?
Hijikata: Nobunaga! I'll pin him down! You do something about the Holy Grail!
Nobunaga: Hey! No mere vice commander of some little wannabe man-slayers club gets to order ME around!
Nobunaga: ...But I guess I've got no choice this time. Don't come whining to me if you all end up roasted to death!
Hijikata: Izo! You take the right, I'll take the left!
Izo: Grr, shut up before I cut both your mitts off, you filthy Wolf of Mibu!
Demon King of the Sixth Heaven - Akechi Mitsuhide: It's useless! My Lady Nobunaga is now mankind's one true savior! Its one true god!!!
Nobunaga: ...Listen, Mitsuhide.
Nobunaga: I never wanted to become a god. This is exactly why you never understood...
Nobunaga: No, maybe I was the one who never understood...
A：Nobunaga: Let's do this, Rider!
A：Nobunaga: ...I shall burn the world and its gods to ash...
Ryouma: ...Orochi of the earth, sealed by Amasakahoko...
A：Nobunaga: ...I am the true Demon King of the Sixth Heaven...
Nobunaga & Ryouma: Oda Nobunaga! & Ryu ga Gotoku!
Section 11: Suppression
Hijikata: Okita's sister once told me that Okita nearly died at birth.
Ryouma: ...I see. So she lived all her life on borrowed time...
Ryouma: I might've been a great fool myself, but at least I got to make my foolish decisions on my own. She never even had the chance to decide for herself.
Hijikata: Then maybe she's been summoned here to repay that debt...
Ryouma: Yeah. Her Spirit Origin has been tuned to be used up all at once for the Counter Force...
Ryouma: She's like a bomb just waiting to go off.
Ryouma: She's on a completely different level than me, in every possible sense.
Ryouma: Once she goes off, there won't be a speck of her Spirit Origin left.
Hijikata: ...I see.
Hijikata: ...We're done talking.
Hijikata: Whatever Okita's debts are, they're hers to settle. It's none of our business one way or the other.
Ryouma: Yeah, I know. It's just hard sometimes, realizing there's some things in life you just can't change.
Hijikata: But still, we might be at fault for the way Okita ended up living her life.
Hijikata: If she does have debts to settle, we can at least lend her a hand.
Ryouma: ...Well now, this is a surprise. Back when I lived in Kyoto, I heard the Demon Vice Commander had neither blood nor tears to shed.
Ryouma: ...Of course, that may have been helped along by things like you forcing subordinates to commit seppuku if they went around using the Shinsengumi's name to raise money.
Hijikata: ...Shut up.
Hijikata: I AM! THE! SHINSENGUMIII!!!
Izo: All right! Gotcha!
Demon King of the Sixth Heaven - Akechi Mitsuhide: ...You're wasting your time. I only needed the Holy Grail to begin things.
Demon King of the Sixth Heaven - Akechi Mitsuhide: Now that I'm both Oda Nobunaga and a god, your pathetic Noble Phantasms are useless against me!
Izo: Ryouma! Now what do we do!? This guy's a monster!
Izo: ...Hey, Ryouma?
Ryouma: ...Sorry, looks like this is it for me. Guess I asked a little too much of Oryou.
Oryou: Oh well. Could be worse. At least Oryou gets to go out with Ryouma. Bye, Izo. Don't forget to brush your teeth.
Ryouma: ...I'm sorry, Izo.
Ryouma: But don't worry. She'll handle the rest.
Izo: ...Ryouma, wait! I said wait, dammit!
Izo: Ryouma... There you go again...!
Nobunaga: Hey, Okita! I got the Holy Grail out, but I'm not gonna last much longer!
Okita Alter: Thank you, everyone. You did great.
Okita Alter: ...I'll take it from here.
Demon King of the Sixth Heaven - Akechi Mitsuhide: Have you lost your mind...?
Demon King of the Sixth Heaven - Akechi Mitsuhide: Not even Lady Nobunaga herself could stop me. How could a Servant with such a pitifully weak Spirit Origin possibly hope to defeat me?
Demon King of the Sixth Heaven - Akechi Mitsuhide: Preposterous...!
Fujimaru 1: What's that light...?
Fujimaru 2: The Holy Grail...!
Hijikata: ...All right, Okita. This is your problem to deal with now.
Nobunaga: I'm sorry. I don't think I can bring Mitsuhide back.
Nobunaga: All I can ask now is that you put him out of his misery.
Okita Alter: ...Yes. The version of me that you have all known for so long...
Okita Alter: ...and the version of me standing here now, who's been by Master's side all this time...
Okita Alter: ...both of them are me.
Okita Alter: This moment is why I'm here.
Demon King of the Sixth Heaven - Akechi Mitsuhide: ...What is that light?
Okita Alter: Come with me to infinity...
Demon King of the Sixth Heaven - Akechi Mitsuhide: Wha...what the!? What's going on!?
Fujimaru 1: What is this place...?
Fujimaru 2: Alter, that outfit...
Okita Alter: I...
Okita Alter: ...am a Guardian sent by the Counter Force.
Demon King of the Sixth Heaven - Akechi Mitsuhide: The Counter Force...? A Guardian!? No...impossible! This Imperial Capital is completely cut off from time and history!
Demon King of the Sixth Heaven - Akechi Mitsuhide: The Counter Force shouldn't be able to intervene at all!
Okita Alter: ...This is a place of endless nothingness.
Okita Alter: There is nothing beyond or before this point. So it is with you.
Okita Alter: This is the endless abyss into which you will fall.
Demon King of the Sixth Heaven - Akechi Mitsuhide: The Counter Force...!? Don't give me that!
Demon King of the Sixth Heaven - Akechi Mitsuhide: Does that mean not only Lady Nobunaga rejected me...but the entire world as well!?
Demon King of the Sixth Heaven - Akechi Mitsuhide: Why? Why!? Why, why, why why why why why why!?
Demon King of the Sixth Heaven - Akechi Mitsuhide: Why why why why why why why why why why!? Why why why why why why why why why why!?
Demon King of the Sixth Heaven - Akechi Mitsuhide: Why does nobody...nobody...accept meeeeee!?
Okita Alter: I'm sorry, Master. I wanted to defeat him on my own. I didn't mean to drag you into it.
Fujimaru 1: I'm with you to the end, Alter.
Fujimaru 2: Hey, Okita asked me to help you too y'know.
Okita Alter: ...Master.
Okita Alter: I'm so glad I met you, Master.
Okita Alter: All right, Caster! No...you false, transient god!
Okita Alter: I am the one who rips demons asunder, destroys gods, and collects mankind's prayers.
A：Majin Okita Souji: ...I am Majin Okita Souji!
Section 12: Reminiscence
Demon King of the Sixth Heaven - Akechi Mitsuhide: ...This can't be right. If all my hard work...just ends like this...then it was for nothing...
Demon King of the Sixth Heaven - Akechi Mitsuhide: Back when...I killed you...and fell to him...
Demon King of the Sixth Heaven - Akechi Mitsuhide: Lady Nobunaga... Please, tell me...
Demon King of the Sixth Heaven - Akechi Mitsuhide: I did all of this for you, Lady Nobunaga... I consumed a tainted Holy Grail...
Demon King of the Sixth Heaven - Akechi Mitsuhide: I spent years on end planning your salvation...
Demon King of the Sixth Heaven - Akechi Mitsuhide: What was different...? Why did you choose him over me...?
Okita Alter: Now I see...
Okita Alter: You sought forgiveness.
Akechi Mitsuhide: ...Forgiveness?
Akechi Mitsuhide: Is that what I wanted?
Akechi Mitsuhide: Forgiveness for killing Lady Nobunaga...?
Akechi Mitsuhide: ...
Akechi Mitsuhide: I see...
Akechi Mitsuhide: I... I...
Fujimaru 1: We won...!?
Fujimaru 2: Alter...!?
Okita Alter: ...Yes. It's all over now.
Fujimaru 1: Alter, your body...
Fujimaru 2: ...
Okita Alter: ...I'm afraid this is goodbye, Master.
Okita Alter: This is the pact I made with the world.
Okita Alter: I became a Guardian of the Counter Force, just once, to atone for changing my fate so I could live.
Fujimaru 1: So...you really have to go away...?
Fujimaru 2: Just once...?
Okita Alter: Sorry for all the trouble I caused you, Master. I'm grateful to you for guiding me when I knew nothing.
Okita Alter: You said you are from Chaldea?
Okita Alter: I would have liked very much to see it for myself. But it just is not to be.
Okita Alter: I'm only a manifestation of the Counter Force. Now that my job is done, the only thing for me to do is disappear.
Fujimaru 1: No... No, I don't want you to go!
Fujimaru 2: I don't want you to leave...!
Okita Alter: Neither do I!!!
Okita Alter: I want to spend so much more time with you!
Okita Alter: I want to see so much more of the world!
Okita Alter: I want to live so much more...!
Okita Alter: I don't want to just disappear...!
Fujimaru 1: Alter...
Fujimaru 2: Then come with me! Let's go back, together!
Okita Alter: ...I can't.
Okita Alter: This is as far as I can go, as far as the life I borrowed from the world will take me.
Okita Alter: Once it's gone...there won't be anything left.
Fujimaru 1: I don't care! Come on, Alter!
Fujimaru 2: You can't just give up!
Okita Alter: ...Master.
Okita Alter: Thank you for getting angry on my behalf...
Okita Alter: ...
Okita Alter: Before I go, I have one last request.
Okita Alter: Please, let me touch your face... Be with me... Here, by my side...
Fujimaru 1: Like this?
Fujimaru 2: Alter, your hand...
Okita Alter: ...
Okita Alter: ...There. I can feel it.
Okita Alter: I can feel your memories flowing into me.
Okita Alter: I have so few memories from after I was born, so...
Okita Alter: ...I'm glad...I got to see your memories of Chaldea.
Okita Alter: ...These memories will be the only proof that I ever lived.
Okita Alter: ...Thank you, Master...
Okita Alter: ...Thank you for everything.
Nobukatsu: Uh, S-Sister!? This place isn't gonna last much longer! We've gotta get out of here!
Nobunaga: Shut it, Nobukatsu! This is nothing compared to Honnoji!
Nobunaga: Hell, heat this mild just makes me want to break out my Atsumori dance moves.
Hijikata: Hey, man-slayer. You sure about this? The way things are going, you're going to end up buried alive.
Izo: Nobody gives me orders, especially not an overgrown wolf... Besides, I still have a job to do.
Izo: And I never leave a job unfinished.
Hijikata: ...Hmph. Suit yourself.
Fujimaru 1: You guys...
Fujimaru 2: Alter...
Nobunaga: There you are, Fujimaru. Where's Okita? ...I see. So she managed to free Mitsuhide.
Nobunaga: ...I'm sorry for making you two clean up my mess.
Izo: Go on. Ryouma entrusted me with making sure you all get out of here safely.
Izo: If I let you die now, I'll never hear the end of it.
Nobukatsu: Hey! I'm the one who was saying we need to hurry and get outta here!
Da Vinci: There, we're finally back online! Are you all okay!?
Da Vinci: Looking at how much clearer our picture is, I'm guessing the situation is pretty well handled!
Mash: That entire area is deteriorating! I'm also seeing space-time bubbles bursting at the Imperial Capital's outer edges!
Mash: You need to get out of there right now! Are you all right, Senpai!?
Fujimaru 1: Yeah, I'm okay.
Fujimaru 2: ...Uh-huh.
Mash: ...? Um, I don't see Sakamoto or Okita anywhere...
Da Vinci: We can ask about that later. Right now, we need to get Fujimaru out of there!
Izo: Looks like your ride is here. That's my job done, then.
Hijikata: Hmph. Izo of Tosa, eh? The next time we meet, I will kill you.
Izo: Right back at you, Shinsengumi.
Fujimaru 1: Come with us, Izo!
Fujimaru 2: ...Isn't there anything we can do?
Izo: Forget it. I'm not like the rest of you; the Holy Grail summoned me here.
Izo: I'm not gonna last much longer no matter what, so just hurry up and get out of here.
Fujimaru 1: Izo... Thank you for helping us!
Fujimaru 2: ...Thank you, Izo! Take care!
Izo: ...Idiot. Is that way you say to a guy about to disappear?
Izo: Once an idiot, always an idiot.
Izo: ...Well, Ryouma? You happy now?
Ryouma: Damn, so you figured out I was still around. Well that takes the wind out of my sails.
Izo: I knew you were probably faking your death just in case something else came up. I swear, can't take my eyes off you for a second.
Ryouma: She and I have a lot in common, so I thought better safe than sorry. But, it looks like I didn't have to worry.
Izo: Hmph... That's just like you.
Izo: But, I guess it's kind of nice getting to talk to you like this, here at the end.
Ryouma: True. I wonder how long it's been since we last talked, just the two of us.
Oryou: Hey, Oryou is right here.
Ryouma: Right, right. Just the three of us, then.
Izo: Hmph... You always were a great fool.
Izo: That much never changed...
Epilogue: A Nice Day for GUDAGUDA
Nobunaga: ...All in all, things were pretty rough.
Okita: ...It sure sounds like it.
Okita: Wait, back up! Did I seriously get killed off in the second act!?
Okita: How could that happen when I was just taking a nap...?
Nobunaga: Relax, it wasn't YOU you. The Holy Grail summoned a DIFFERENT Okita there, right?
Okita: I mean, yes, I know it wasn't ME me, but I still don't like it!
Okita: Besides...another aspect of me? I had no idea about any of that.
Hijikata: ...Hmph. What are you worried about?
Hijikata: This other you repaid your debt to the world. You should be grateful to her for saving you the trouble.
Hijikata: You basically got a “get out of debt free” card from all this. What more could you want?
Okita: I know that sort of thing is hardly unusual for Servants, but it still doesn't feel right.
Okita: ...You said she was my Alter, right? What was she like, Master?
Fujimaru 1: Your Alter was–
Fujimaru 2: ...Okita, she
Okita Alter: ...So this is Master's Chaldea.
Fujimaru 1: Say whaaaaaat!?
Fujimaru 2: Wh-wh-what are you doing here!?
Okita Alter: Master! I missed you! (Glomp)
Okita Alter: When I came to, I found myself here.
Okita Alter: Is this the power of love that Oryou was always talking about?
Okita: Hey! You! Palette Swap! What are you talking about!? Get away from my Master!
Fujimaru 1: Okita! Alter! Both of you, please calm down!
Okita Alter: Hmph... No fair, Master.
Okita Alter: Why does she get to be Okita, and I just have to be Alter?
B：Okita: What, why would you be Okita instead of me?
Okita: Hah! Shows what you know, Palette Swap! Master and I go waaay back! You? You just showed up outta nowhere!
Okita Alter: ...All right, I've decided. From now on, Master, I want you to call me “Little Okita.”
Okita Alter: Yes, I like that. My name is Little Okita now. It's much cuter than just “Okita.”
B：Okita: EXCUSE ME!? Just what the hell is THIS!?
Fujimaru 1: You seem...different, Alter.
Fujimaru 2: Is that what you're actually like, Alter?
A：Little Okita: What did I just say? My name is Little Okita now.
Fujimaru 1: Oh, uh, right.
Mash: Excuse me, Senpai, you have a visito–
Mash: Huh? Two Okitas...? And why are they performing a naming ceremony with you, Senpai!?
Hijikata: ...What's the meaning of this?
Nobunaga: ...Hmm. Maybe it's the original Okita's Spirit Origin rubbing off on her? Like when my Spirit Origin temporarily materialized Nobukatsu.
Nobukatsu: I knew you'd know what's up, Sister!
Nobunaga: I know, right? Wait...
Nobunaga: You're here too!?
Nobukatsu: Technically, yeah, though I might disappear at any moment.
Nobukatsu: But, since I'm here for now, I thought I might as well take advantage of it!
Nobukatsu: So, where's YOUR room, Sister?
Nobunaga: I didn't invite you here! Get lost, fool!
Mash: (Sigh...) I don't even know what to say anymore.
Fujimaru 1: By the way, Mash, you were saying something about a visitor?
Fujimaru 2: So, what did you want to talk to me about?
Mash: Oh, right, I completely forgot! Your visitors are–
Ryouma: ...Hey there. Sorry for barging in like this.
Fujimaru 1: Sakamoto!?
Fujimaru 2: What are you doing here!?
Oryou: Yaaay. Oryou's here too.
Ryouma: I can't really explain it, but we were hurtled here after everything ended.
Ryouma: And since we don't have anywhere else to go, I was hoping you wouldn't mind if we stayed awhile.
Fujimaru 1: Sure! We've got rooms to spare!
Ryouma: Wonderful, thanks. I think I'll be very comfortable here.
Fujimaru 2: That should be fine, right, Mash?
Mash: Yes, of course! You saved Senpai's life. Please, feel free to stay and enjoy yourself as long as you like.
Ryouma: Thank you for this. What say we get settled in, Oryou?
Oryou: Lucky you, Ryouma. Now you get to be the freeloader you always wanted to be. Oh, also, Oryou has an important question: Are there any frogs here?
Mash: I, uh, think we're fresh out of frogs...
G：Ryouma: (So she's here too... A manifestation of the Counter Force...)
G：Ryouma: (It looks like Izo went back to the Throne... So why am I still here...?)
G：Ryouma: (...I guess this means my work may not be done yet after all.)
Oryou: What's wrong, Ryouma?
Ryouma: Oh, nothing.
Ryouma: ...I was just thinking how this looks like it's going to be the most fun job I've had in a long time.
A：???: Hey! Why's everyone in such a good mood!? What happened while Chacha was out getting ice cream!?
A：???: That Little Okita girl seems really crafty too. Is she trying to steal Chacha's thunder? Wait, I guess not!
A：???: Anyway, they're up to something... Like that old tanuki Tokugawa always was. And there's no way Chacha's letting them get away with it!
A：???: They've left Chacha no choice but to go full Lady Yodo Alter Avenger!
A：???: Hear my call, all you proud warriors of the Toyotomi who I found randomly in the cafeteria! Assemble before me!
A：???: Chacha... No, Lady Yodo will show them what a REAL Imperial Capital looks like!
Isolated Realm of the Far East CHACHA
Fujimaru 1: Nobbu...!?
Fujimaru 2: ...She's dead!?
Okita Alter: Master, let's go have some oden in the cafeteria.
Okita Alter: ...Hm? What's wrong with her?
Okita: Oh come on, this isn't anywhere close to oden season. Wait, what happened to you, Nobbu!?
Okita: Well, I guess if someone had to die, it might as well have been someone nobody will miss.
Okita: If any Japanese historians come asking about you, that's what I'll tell them.
Nobbu: I'm not dead, you fools!
Okita Alter: Oh, good for you. Being alive is much better than being dead.
Okita Alter: ...So, Master? What do you say to that oden?
Nobbu: You care more about oden than me?
Okita: Tch... Fine, what is it?
Nobbu: W-well, you see... No, wait. Sit back and let me spin you a tale of–
Okita: Just tell us.
Nobbu: Hm hm hmm, gotta use the bathroom! That's what I get for drinking too much of that coffee milk David sells.
Nobbu: But it's so sweet and yummy! If only it played nicer with my tummy...
Nobbu: Huh? Beautiful Warring State maidens don't ever use the bathroom? Don't be ridiculous, of course they do. How do you think the Dragon of Echigo died?
Nobbu: 'Course, I really don't know if the Dragon of Echigo was a beauty or not, but... Hm?
Nobbu: What's this? Is someone in the Command Room?
D：???: ...How dare you! How dare you all go on this crazy adventure while Chacha was out getting ice cream!
D：???: If His Imperial Highness knew Chacha only had a teensy cameo at the beginning, he'd be so angry, he'd be getting all Odawara on your Sanada Maru asses!
D：???: This is no time to be holding a tactical briefing! Also, “Little Okita”? What's up with that?
D：???: Beams!? Chacha wants to shoot beams too! Huh? Chacha can already shoot lasers from Chacha's hands?
D：???: Those aren't beams, you idiot! Those are the cursed flames that consume Chacha from the inside!
D：???: Huh? What do you mean that's a real downer of a background story...?
D：???: Look, the point is, Auntie may be okay with this, but His Imperial Highness won't be!
D：???: Now that things have come to this, I'll take control of Castellas and... Hehehehehe...!
Nobbu: Uh, it's actually Chaldeas, not Castellas...
Chacha: ...Yooou saaaw meee!
Nobbu: C-crap! I mean, I was just going to the bathroom!
Nobbu: Hey! Stop that, Chacha! Aaaaaahhh!
Nobbu: And there you have it...
Okita: Chacha did that!?
Okita: I mean, I didn't get the spotlight in this story, but I suppose she did get even less stage time...
Da Vinci: We've got an emergency! When I woke up, I saw that Trismegistus's simulator had gone haywire! It's opened up a portal to some strange place!
Da Vinci: It's probably just the data from the analysis we ran during the last major incident acting up...
Da Vinci: Anyway, I'm sleepy. I was up all night working, so this one's all you.
Mash: Senpai! Da Vinci told me what's going on!
Mash: We need to Rayshift to the problem area right away!
Fujimaru 1: Are you sure this is worth a Rayshift?
Fujimaru 2: I thought GUDAGUDA was over...
Okita Alter: Are you off to have some fun, Master? I'll go with you, then.
Okita: Wait, why am I mixing my name with yours? I'm the original here.
Nobbu: W-wait, Okita Alter... Lemme see that badass sword of yours.
Okita Alter: My sword?
Nobbu: Yes. I'm afraid we're heading into the fiercest battle in the history of GUDAGUDA.
Nobbu: And since my tummy hurts from drinking all of that coffee milk earlier, I can't go help. Sooo, I'm going to infuse your badass sword with my awesome power!
Okita Alter: ...What is this!?
Nobbu: Heh... I just poured a little over half of my magical energy into your sword!
Nobbu: It's no ordinary blade anymore: now it's a demonic godslayer, imbued with the power of the Demon King of the Sixth Heaven...
D：Nobbu: I call it Rengokuken... The Sword of Purgatory!
Okita: Yikes... Uh, Nobbu, the Warring States period called? It wants its bad taste in names back.
Okita Alter: Purgatory... From now on, you are Rengokuken.
Okita: Whaaa!? You like it!? And wait, can you seriously use a sword with Nobbu's power?
Okita: Don't you have, like, your own secret Okita power you can draw on or something...?
Fujimaru 1: Okay, that's enough. See you all later.
Fujimaru 2: This is going to get out of hand quickly...
Mash: P-please be careful, Senpai!
We the Imperial Capital Seven Spears
Chacha: Thank you for coming, my Toyotomi elites who happened to see the flyers Chacha put up around the cafeteria!
B：???: No, I'm just here to find out where those weird posters I saw came from.
C：???: I thought we would be making dioramas of Japanese castles... And where's Mr. Blue Spandex who's always hanging out here, anyway?
D：???: The blue one said he would let me handle this and wandered to parts unknown. I'm unsure what he meant.
C：???: That damn flower shopkeep must've made a run for it...! And wait, is it just me, or are there even more people I don't recognize here now?
E：???: At last, I've finally risen to the rank of mid-boss... Huh? I'm not actually gonna get to fight? Aww.
F：???: It seems yet another Saber has been born... Huh? She's an Alter Ego? Don't care! If she's got the face, she's a guilty disgrace!
G：???: This Imperial Capital Chick Custard Dark Matter Schwarzschild Whipped Maxwell Tall Gestalt A La Mode...
G：???: ...really hits the spot.
C：???: I thought I'd made a clean getaway this time...
Chacha: ANYWAY! Nobody throws a fun, awesome event without Chacha and gets away with it!
Chacha: Chacha is so FURIOUS, even Chacha's Berserker Spirit Origin might not be able to contain Chacha's rage!
Chacha: That's right. Chacha's desire for revenge burns so hot that Chacha has become Princess Toyotomi Avenger Yodo!
B：???: There's what she's saying...and then there's how she's saying it. The dissonance is unsettling.
A：Avenger Yodo: Go, my Seven Spears of the Imperial Capital, sworn to Toyotomi! Drive this world into the depths of despair!
A：Avenger Yodo: Huh? Some of you use bows and laser swords instead of spears?
A：Avenger Yodo: CHACHA DOESN'T SWEAT THE SMALL STUFF. Just go with it!
A：Avenger Yodo: Chacha will also give you some of the special soldiers Chacha stole from Auntie's Spirit Origin when she wasn't looking!
A：Avenger Yodo: Hey, is it just Chacha, or has Chacha's voice changed somehow? Is Chacha leveling up? Or can Servants go through puberty?
A：Avenger Yodo: Well, whatever. Just go already!!!
Seven Spears of the Imperial Capital: Yes, ma'am!
Seven Spears of the Imperial Capital: ...Wow, we really didn't think this group shot through, did we?
Coffee Milk after Bathtime
???: So, you've finally made it all the way here...
???: I am one of the Seven Spears: Wakizaka Katsuharu, the rightful heir to the Oda estate...Oda Nobukatsu!
Nobunaga: You know, Nobukatsu, I've been thinking...
Nobunaga: You really bring up this “rightful heir to the Oda family” stuff a lot, don't you?
Nobunaga: Weren't you just talking about how you'd always be there for me? What're you trying to pull?
Wakizaka Katsuharu: Gah! Sister!? What are you doing here!?
Wakizaka Katsuharu: I thought you were cooped up in the bathroom after drinking too much coffee milk!
Nobunaga: I was, until Fujimaru came and begged me for help..
Nobunaga: ...after [♂ he /♀ she] found out that Okita Alter doesn't do very well against Sabers.
Nobunaga: So, I took some antacid and here I am!
Okita Alter: I'm hurt, Master. Do you really have so little faith in me?
Fujimaru 1: No, no. She just showed up on her own.
Fujimaru 2: Yeah, no. That is not how it went.
Nobunaga: Wha!? Et tu, Fujimaru!?
Nobunaga: I might've been one of the early game Servants, but I'll have you know I am still in the meta when you are fighting against Divine enemies!!!
Okita: Yes, yes, we know. Since we're all here now, let's just take care of this and be done with it.
Wakizaka Katsuharu: Why you...! I'll show you how unstoppable Sister and I were in Owari once we teamed up!
Wakizaka Katsuharu: Come forth, my Super Mecha Nobbu Mk. II that I made from a bunch of scraps...in a cave!
Super Mecha Nobbu Mk. II: No-No-No...Nobbu!
Nobunaga: What the hell is that? It's nowhere near October, dummy.
Nobunaga: Huh? Why are you looking at me like that?
Okita Alter: ...I swear on my Rengokuken, I will vanquish the Demon King!
Nobunaga: Did I miss something!?
A：???: Good of you to come, Master of Chaldea. I am Fukushima Eminori, one of the Seven Spears!
Fujimaru 1: Cafeteria Guy!
Fukushima Eminori: Uh, could you just pretend that's someone else for now? Not that I'm even okay with the whole “Cafeteria Guy” tag to begin with, but you know...
Fujimaru 2: No weird mask this time, I see.
Fukushima Eminori: Of course not. I may change my hairstyle at times, but I will not rely on cheap gimmicks.
Fukushima Eminori: ...Though I'll admit, I may have missed the proverbial boat when it comes to worrying about my standing.
Fukushima Eminori: Still, I understand Chacha's frustration with being left out, so here I am.
Fukushima Eminori: Now come on! I might make a lot of different weapons...
Fukushima Eminori: ...but none of them hold up well against Servants who have mastered only one!
Okita Alter: This feeling... I don't suppose you're my Guardian senpa–
Fukushima Eminori: Let's not go there.
It's Not Like Nothing Can't Not Be Done Without a Spear
A：???: ...So, you've come.
A：???: Would you like some tea before we... No, that's probably a bad idea.
A：???: I am Katou Shuwen, one of the Seven Spears of the Imperial Capital!
Fujimaru 1: ...This guy's strong!
Fujimaru 2: ...Even his name's badass!
Katou Shuwen: Kakakaka, easy there! I'm not here for work this time! I responded to this call for personal reasons.
Katou Shuwen: As long as I get to put my spear to use, I'm happy.
Katou Shuwen: Besides, there's something about that Servant with the enormous longsword that gets my blood pumping.
Okita Alter: That's the Lancer we saw back then...and he's even stronger now, Master.
Okita: This is clearly no place for comic relief...
Okita: Keep your guard up! I wouldn't put it past this Lancer to cheat and use his bare fists or something!
Okita Alter: ...That's all right, though. I'm stronger now than I was back then, too. Let's do this, Lancer!
Katou Shuwen: Indeed! Let us see just how close you have come to achieving true mastery!
Katou Shuwen: My Baji needs no second strike. ...Hrn!
Katou Shuwen: Bleed from all seven orifices of your skull...as you die!!!
The Voice of a Mini Nobu...!?
A：???: I am Katou Medeaki, one of the Seven Spears! Make sure you don't confuse me with Katou Kiyomasa!
Katou Medeaki: Wait, what kind of introduction is THAT!? I don't even know what it means!
Fujimaru 1: Thanks for doing this.
Katou Medeaki: Huh? I should actually be playing Kiyomasa? Because he was great at building castles, and I'm good at making models?
Katou Medeaki: So what!? This isn't a trivia game! Why should Japanese history matter to me!?
Fujimaru 2: Maybe Katou Yoshiaki then?They were known as calm and collected.
Katou Medeaki: Huh? What is this, some kind of trivia game? Did I not make it clear I don't care about Far East history!?
C：Ryouma: ...I take it you asked for my help because your opponent is a Caster?
Oryou: When Oryou and Ryouma work together...there is nothing Oryou can't handle. Yaaay.
Fujimaru 1: Everyone knows Riders beat Casters, right? Help me out here!
Fujimaru 2: Watch out for her Rapid Words technique, Hundred Flying Daggers!
Katou Medeaki: ...This guy has my Untrustworthy Hot Man Radar screaming at me. You there! Are you sure he's being totally honest with you!?
Oryou: Huh? Have you been tricking Oryou all this time, Ryouma?
C：Ryouma: Don't be silly, of course I haven't. How long have we known each other now?
Katou Medeaki: ...Hmph. Handsome men like you always say that sort of thing. I used to fall for it, too...
Oryou: Yeah, you're right. There's no way you'd lie to Oryou.
C：Ryouma: Come to think of it, why don't we go on another trip sometime soon? Being in Chaldea has given us a little more free time, after all.
Katou Medeaki: ...
Oryou: Hey, good idea. We haven't done that in a long time. Maybe we could visit Takachiho again or something.
C：Ryouma: Boy, that brings back memories.
Fujimaru 1: Um, Medeaki?
Fujimaru 2: Uh-oh...
Katou Medeaki: That does it! I am a tolerant woman, but I CANNOT STAND PDA! If you're going to act like swine, then I'll use Circe's Loser Fist to turn you into swine!
???: (Sigh...) I really thought I'd managed to avoid this for once...
A：???: Oh, uh, right. I guess I'm Katagiri Medumoto? There's something about the Seven Spears in there, too.
Fujimaru 1: You know...that outfit's something else, isn't it.
Katagiri Medumoto: I don't know why I keep getting caught up in these things...
Fujimaru 2: I guess this gives you the GUDAGUDA hat trick.
Katagiri Medumoto: Yes, yes. Let's not think about that.
Katagiri Medumoto: Anyway, I'm gonna come at you with everything I've got, so just hurry up and beat me already. Please.
Okita Alter: Are you sure about this? You don't really seem up for it.
Fujimaru 1: So you're not gonna change outfits this time?
Katagiri Medumoto: I'd heard there were talks about that, but apparently they were scrapped because of deadline issues.
Katagiri Medumoto: I'm not sure what that was about, but honestly, it came as a relief.
Okita Alter: I wouldn't mind a new outfit myself...
Fujimaru 2: I can't wait for the theatrical release!
Katagiri Medumoto: I'm afraid I don't know what you're talking about, but I can say that I highly, highly recommend it.
Katagiri Medumoto: So please make sure to check it out! (Winning smile)
Okita Alter: A theatrical release... I guess I learned something new today.
Katagiri Medumoto: Anyway, I still have a lot of reading I'd like to do, so let's get this over with and then I can go back to my room. And my books.
Katagiri Medumoto: Come on! Oh! And don't forget! I'm weak to Assassins, so make sure to put some on your team to make this faster!
Katagiri Medumoto: Also Alter Egos!
Legend of the Mightiest of the Bakumatsu, IZO
Mysterious Seven Spear - Kasuya Heroine X: Hey! That was a super cheap shot, you know!
Mysterious Seven Spear - Kasuya Heroine X: I wouldn't ever have seen it coming if I wasn't Mysterious Seven Spear Kasuya Heroine X!
Mysterious Seven Spear - Kasuya Heroine X: I can also tell from the way you wield your blade, you're no Saber!
Man-slayer Izo: ...Indeed, I'm neither Saber nor Assassin.
Man-slayer Izo: I'm...a man-slayer!
Fujimaru 1: So, this is already happening, then...
Fujimaru 2: Wait... Izo?
Ryouma: Huh? You're here too, Izo?
Ryouma: Wow, I haven't seen that getup of yours in a long time. That takes me back to our Kyoto days.
Man-slayer Izo: Ryouma! I hear you're living it up in Chaldea now, after you left me behind for dead!
Man-slayer Izo: I KNEW you would trick me!
Ryouma: I-I wouldn't say “trick” exactly... It's just, one thing led to another, and...
Oryou: What a waste of a satisfying climax.
Mysterious Seven Spear - Kasuya Heroine X: As I am the one true Saber, I cannot allow a stupid Assassin to go around acting like a Saber! It's wrong! Wrong I tell you!
Mysterious Seven Spear - Kasuya Heroine X: You all hate Saberfaces too, right? So let's take this faux Saber down like the punk he is!
Fujimaru 1: Okay...
Fujimaru 2: Uh, X, you know you're an Assass
Mysterious Seven Spear - Kasuya Heroine X: Heroine X's Saber Power can save the Imperial Capital! Have faith!
Mysterious Seven Spear - Kasuya Heroine X: Cool? Cool! Thanks for joining my Heroine Alliance, guys!
Mysterious Seven Spear - Kasuya Heroine X: Oh, and as for you, Alter Ego?
Mysterious Seven Spear - Kasuya Heroine X: We need to have a little chat about that face of yours. Meet me behind the gym after school gets out!
Short Soy Terrible Milky Light Straight...
A：???: Welcome. It's so good of you all to come. I'm Hirano Ex, one of the Seven Spears of the Imperial Capital.
Hirano Ex: I'm also the manager of Dark Rounds, the hot new sweets café that's sweeping the galaxy.
Fujimaru 1: Sweets...?
Fujimaru 2: Can't believe that menace sunk its claws into the capital too...!
Hirano Ex: This is a wonderful place.
Hirano Ex: I've never seen such perfect blends of Eastern bean pastries and classic Western sweets.
Hirano Ex: It was just begging to expand on a galactic level! Franchises in every solar system!
Okita Alter: You really do have a lot of delicious-looking sweets... I think I may buy some myself...
Okita Alter: ...Yes. I'll take one of these, please.
A：Ex (Manager): The Dark Rounds Bean Sponge Cake? Of course. That'll be two dollars, please. However, if you want it to go, I'll have to ask you to wait a little longer.
Okita Alter: Not a problem. I'll just have it here with Master.
A：Ex (Manager): Oh, all right. In that case, you may go ahead and have a seat at one of the tables in our dine-in area. Anyway, as I was saying...
A：Ex (Manager): ...Unfortunately, Manager Ex's joy was short-lived when she realized something terrible.
Fujimaru 1: Something terrible?
Fujimaru 2: Can I please have one of your Galaxy Chick Sweet Custard Buns?
Hirano Ex: I...I just realized... Since I am the manager...I'll never get to eat any of these sweets myself...!
Hirano Ex: The only thing I can do now is defeat you, and make you take over as manager!
Hirano Ex: So, on that note...get ready for a fight. When fine sweets are on the line, you'd better believe Ex is gonna give it to you!
Goodbye GUDAGUDA, Until We Meet Again
Okita: ...So this is the throne room.
Okita: What was the deal with all those weird Mini Nobus, anyway? Is it just me, or did they sound broken?
Avenger Yodo: ...So, you've finally made it this far, evil servants of Tokugawa.
Avenger Yodo: I'm impressed you managed to defeat my Seven Spears...
Fujimaru 1: Can we just go now? It's dinnertime and I'm hungry.
Avenger Yodo: Really? Chacha wants curry! With a little flag in it! Oh, and lots of honey and apples!
Fujimaru 2: Uh, I'm pretty sure none of us are with Tokugawa?
Avenger Yodo: Don't argue with Chacha's backstory!
Avenger Yodo: When you get right down to it, this whole Imperial Capital thing was Tokugawa's idea in the first place!
Avenger Yodo: Hey! Don't try to change the subject!
Avenger Yodo: Chacha is no longer Chacha! Chacha is Avenger Yodo, the empress of Toyotomi who burns with fiery vengeance!
Okita Alter: ...Master, I know this situation seems like a joke that's gone too far, but she is seriously powerful! I think she may have reached a point where the Counter Force needs to get involved.
Okita Alter: ...Then, wait... Does that mean that the whole reason I am here is for this moment!?
Fujimaru 1: Yeah, I reeeally don't think so.
Fujimaru 2: I think the Counter Force is better than that.
Okita Alter: Yes, I suppose you're right. If that were the case, I'd have to disappear all over again.
Okita Alter: Thank you, slightly-stronger-than-average person.
Avenger Yodo: Why does Cha–Avenger Yodo get the feeling you're not taking me seriously!?
Avenger Yodo: All right, that does it. Now that it's come to this, I'll show you just how powerful I've become.
Avenger Yodo: Taste the power I gained from the unyielding fury that turned me into an Avenger when I learned that you had finished the WHOLE event without me!
Okita Alter: Wha...!? I thought I'd destroyed that!
Okita: Why is there a Holy Grail in Chacha!?
Avenger Yodo: Heh... I found it lying around when I got here!
Avenger Yodo: After I'd finished eating ice cream out of it, I felt incredible power surging through me...power to change the whole world! Or...something...
Avenger Yodo: Now, nobody can stop me! Soon, Tokugawa's infernal city will be little more than dust!
Okita: Dammit! I guess we have to fight! Come on, Alter Me!
Okita Alter: Got it, Normal Me! If two Okitas join forces, we can unleash limitless Okita Power. Now...
Double Okita: ...witness the power of Double Okita!
Chacha: ...Nghhh, Auntie, that's Chacha's coffee... ...Yaaawn... (Zzz)
Okita Alter: Hehe... She's sleepy. She looks so peaceful.
Fujimaru 1: That was a hell of a fight, huh?
Fujimaru 2: That Double Sandanzuki was pretty sweet.
Okita Alter: Indeed. I could never have won without your Command Spells and Normalkita laying down her own life.
Okita Alter: From now on, I'll need to work hard enough for the both of us in order to support you, Master...
Fujimaru 1: Alter...
Fujimaru 2: If only Okita hadn't pushed herself so hard...
Okita: Whoa, whoa, whoa! I'm not dead! I just fainted a little! That's all!
Okita: Don't go getting all weepy on me now!
Okita Alter: You certainly have it hard, don't you, Normalkita? I can't imagine what it's like myself.
Okita: Huh!? But not even the Holy Grail can cure this curse!? Why do you get off scot-free when we're both Okita!?
Chacha: What's Chacha doing here...? Oh, hi, Master. Hi, Okita. Hi, Okita. What's going on?
Fujimaru 1: We were all just about to go home together.
Fujimaru 2: It...uh, it's a long story.
Chacha: I see... Chacha didn't know Chacha did that... Chacha's sorry for all the trouble, Okita, um, Alter, right?
Okita Alter: Don't worry about it.
Okita Alter: Besides, I was born just a short while ago. All of this stuff is very exciting to me.
Okita Alter: It's a wonderful feeling, being alive.
Chacha: Born recently... Is that so... Hmm... Maybe I did get a little carried away.
Chacha: Maybe we can start over? It's nice meeting you, Alterwhatsit.
Okita Alter: ...How strange. Hearing someone as small as you call me that is...oddly calming.
Chacha: Hehe, is that so? Well, you can think of Chacha as your mother! Ask me for anything!
Chacha: And make sure you bring Chacha ice cream on Mother's Day!
Mash: There, I finally got through! Are you all right, Senpai!?
Fujimaru 1: Yeah, more or less.
Fujimaru 2: Can we just have dinner now, please?
Nobbu: Good, it looks like Chacha's back to normal. Well done, Master.
Nobbu: Now hurry back before supper gets cold.
Nobbu: I really must say, though...this pudding I found in the fridge while you were out sure is tasty! (Smacking lips)
Mash: Ah! Nobunaga, that's Chacha's–
Chacha: ...Pudding you found in the fridge?
Nobbu: Mm! The oden we're having for supper is especially tasty, too! (Munch munch) I always did love strong flavors! Wahahaha! I can't put it down!
Nobbu: What? Is this all we had? Oh, sorry. I guess I ate it all for a snack while I was waiting for you guys.
Okita Alter: ...Oden?
Fujimaru 1: I'll buy more oden and pudding, okay!?
Fujimaru 2: Oh no...
B：Avenger Yodo: DEATH TO AUNTIE! NO MERCY!
Okita Alter: This...is the power of the Counter Force...!
Nobbu: ...Huh? What's the matter with you two? Doesn't this seem weird to anyone else?
Okita: (Sigh) Here we go again...
Fujimaru 1: Yep, that's GUDAGUDA...
Nobbu: W-wait! It couldn't be heeelped!
