Thomas Edison

Can I Do It?

Mash: Senpai, have some tea.

Fujimaru 1: Thanks.

Mash: It's a rare day off. Please relax.

Fou: Foou...

Mash: It seems Fou is happy to take it easy as well. I'll pat his stomach.

Fou: Foouuuuu.

Fujimaru 1: What a peaceful day.

Mash: Yes. If only these days went on forever...

Mash: ...Hmm. I guess this is what you'd call “Murphy's law.”

Edison: Another failure! Hmph, something's missing!

Edison: Electric power, or raw materials. Or maybe something else. ROAR, I wonder.

Mash: W-What's wrong, Edison!?

Edison: Good morning, Mash, Master! Oh, just trying to slightly improve my Noble Phantasm.

Edison: While tinkering here and there, it suddenly exploded with a “boom!”

Edison: Hahahahaha! Failures are not good, but I expect nothing less from my Noble Phantasm. Even when it activates accidentally it packs a punch!

Mash: Your constant thirst for knowledge is impressive, Mr. President.

Mash: But, there are other Servants here as well. Please avoid creating a scene, especially in the hallway.

Edison: But my room is so cramped. Experiments require space, you see.

Mash: Even Tesla respects the rules here, you know?

Edison: ROAR, don't compare me with that dimwit! Sorry, miss. Next time I'll start with the “mute” function.

Edison: But it doesn't hurt to try, right? With upcoming battles in mind, strengthening a Noble Phantasm is essential.

Edison: But seeing how I'm failing to make progress, I may need to change my way of thinking...

Mash: Change one's way of thinking...

Mash: If I recall correctly, turning inventions or unimaginable discoveries into something more polished...

Mash: That was the greatest triumph for Thomas Edison...

Mash: Why don't you try improving your Noble Phantasm with the same mindset?

Edison: Hmm, I suppose you're right.

Edison: However, I find myself at a loss when thinking only about my own Noble Phantasm.

Edison: Perhaps if I use the Noble Phantasms of other Servants as reference...

Mash: O-Other Servants... You say?

Edison: Very well then!

Edison: Let's start making contact with other Servants in Chaldea right away!

Mash: But are you sure that's okay? A Noble Phantasm is the embodiment of a Servant's pride...

Mash: To be so openly investigative about their abilities is somewhat...

Edison: Who cares if it's okay or not! For the time being, we need to try!

Fujimaru 1: Right, for the time being!

Fujimaru 2: Right, we need to try!

Mash: Senpai, it all comes down to the same thing!

Edison: So, that being said, here's what I came up with!

Cú Chulainn: ...Hey, Master! So why'd you call me here?

Cú Chulainn: I have a bad feeling about this, and I'm also not a huge fan of that witch over there.

Edison: Don't worry, Cú Chulainn. This will be for your own good as well.

Medea: ...Umm, maybe I don't look like it, but I'm kind of busy.

Medea: As a Caster I give lectures to other mages and make adjustments to the backyard...

Medea: I also have to make sure that my former self doesn't say anything outrageous.

Edison: Of course, my fair lady. What I have to say shall also be of use to you as well.

Medea: ...I see. I guess I'll at least hear what you have to say.

Cú Chulainn: A “lady.” (Scoff)

Medea: I don't know what you're scoffing at, but for now I'll kill you! Rule Breaker!

Cú Chulainn: You still have a short temper, don't you!? Also you unleash your Noble Phantasm way too fast–!

Mash: P-Please calm down, Medea!

Edison: That's it! I've got it!

G:Everyone: Huh?

Edison: I've been thinking about it for some time.

Edison: Cú Chulainn's Gáe Bolg can overturn fate, piercing its target no matter what course it takes.

Edison: On the other hand, Lady Medea's Rule Breaker not only destroys all magical support...

Edison:'s also an Anti-Magecraft Noble Phantasm even capable of severing a Servant's contract!

Edison: So that's when I came up with my idea!

Cú Chulainn: ...What exactly can a lion come up with?

Edison: This powerful body is not that of a lion, but the manifestation of a beast of wild intellect!

Medea: So you do agree that you're a beast.

Edison: Of course, I wake up an hour early every morning to brush my fur and... Wait, I'm getting sidetracked.

Edison: Just listen to me! I'm going to weld together Cú Chulainn's Gáe Bolg and Medea's Rule Breaker!

Edison: No matter who the Servant may be, this revolutionary Noble Phantasm will overturn one's fate and sever any contract!

Edison: I shall name it “Edison-type Bolg Breaker!”

Fou: Fou, foou.

Cú Chulainn: Hey, Master! Can I go back now?

Medea: ...Please tell me more.

Cú Chulainn: Witch!? I mean, uh, Medea?

Medea: Actually, the thought has occurred to me before.

Medea: Approaching enemies for each Rule Breaker isn't really a Caster's job, right?

Medea: It's tiresome, dangerous, you get splashed with blood, and you almost trip stepping on the hem of your robe.

Medea: So, if you could quickly activate a Noble Phantasm with that lance of yours, that'd be perfect.

Medea: I mean, I didn't obtain my Noble Phantasm from my adventures. It's a materialization of my legend of treachery.

Medea: So, I'm not too attached to it. I almost wouldn't mind forcing it on someone else.

Edison: As always, Caster, your logical thinking is so elegant.

Cú Chulainn: You muscleheads, no, mageheads! Just because it's convenient doesn't mean it's good!

Cú Chulainn: I love my Scarlet Lance! It's totally a part of my identity!

Mash: Y-Yes, I see.

Mash: Cú Chulainn acquired the legendary Gáe Bolg only after harsh training and discipline.

Mash: It would be wrong to carelessly tinker with it–

Medea: Who cares if we lose a spear or two? Should I call Scáthach to give us spares?

Medea: Or maybe I should say.

Medea: “Your pupil is such a stingy warrior that he won't even let go of a single spear.”

Cú Chulainn: Damn you. You hit a sore spot... This is exactly why I can't stand witches... Fine, here.

Edison: Thanks for your assistance! Noble Phantasm modification... Here I go!

Edison: All right, it's done! The “Edison-type Bolg Breaker!”

Edison: Fuhahaha! Behold its elegant design!

Edison: Oh, a patent! I must get a patent! No matter what, patents come first!

Cú Chulainn: Oh, my Gáe Bolg... My perfectly efficient crimson spear... It looks so fancy!

Edison: Now now, Cú Chulainn. We must experiment first.

Edison: Fortunately, there's a Servant who would gladly volunteer for this experiment.

Cú Chulainn: Well, isn't that convenient!? How nice that such a weird Servant just popped up like that!

Emiya: Hmph. To think you'd modify your Noble Phantasm. And here I was thinking you were a savage.

Emiya: I know Edison's a modern man, but for someone born in the Age of the Gods, that's quite a flexible way of thinking.


Medea: Of course. Not only is this playboy of a mage calling himself Archer, he's also a repeat offender of Noble Phantasm theft and illegal modification!

Emiya: That's not very nice, Caster. But you know there's a saying...

Emiya: My Noble Phantasm is my Noble Phantasm. Your Noble Phantasm is still mine after I copy it.

Mash: E-Even this Noble Phantasm that I'm holding on to!?

Cú Chulainn: There isn't a saying like that! You know other Servants will kill you if they hear you say that, right!?

Emiya: Of course, I choose my opponents. To the ones that are like “I really don't like mine copied,” I will do it in secrecy.

Emiya: But the ones that are like “Why don't you try it punk,” I will project their Noble Phantasms right in their faces.

Emiya: Difficulty level is a factor as well. I can't easily project a Noble Phantasm like Gáe Bolg.

Emiya: Similarly, Mash's Noble Phantasm is also something I can't easily imitate.

Mash: T-Thank you very much. I'm glad, Master!

Fujimaru 1: Mash, you are my one and only!

Mash: Y-Yes! Master, I'll devote myself to my training!

Medea: Youth, huh... How touching...

Emiya: Well, let's try projecting one. Are you ready, Edison!?

Edison: Yes! Cú Chulainn!

Edison: Give it a shot! I'm here to back you up!

Edison: Assuming there would be actual combat, I prepared a random enemy for you!

Cú Chulainn: Ugh, enough already! This one strike, accept it as your farewell gift!

Mash: Commencing battle!


Medea: Time to finish this. Archer has started chanting.

Edison: Okay, perfect timing! Cú Chulainn, now!

Cú Chulainn: I got this! Once the fight starts, I won't hold back!

Cú Chulainn: “Bolg Breaker,” here we go!

Edison: It's “Edison-type Bolg Breaker!” Don't forget!

Cú Chulainn: Yeah, yeah. “Edison-type Bolg Breaker!”

Emiya: It's been a while, but here I go! Rho Aias!

Mash: Whaaat!?

Mash: Emiya-senpai, you possess a shield-type Noble Phantasm!?

Mash: I-I'll make sure I take notes!

Edison: Let's see which one will come out on top!

Edison: Of course, I'm confident that my “Edison-type Bolg Breaker” will win!

Edison: A blade that could cut through all forms of Magecraft would surely pierce that shield-type Noble Phantasm!

Medea: Huh? That's impossible you know?

Medea: I mean, my Noble Phantasm works against Servants, but not against other Noble Phantasms.

Medea: It would be especially tough when the target's a shield created precisely to ward off attacks.

Edison: What!? Was I mistaken on such a fundamental concept!?

Edison: Which means, in this case–

Cú Chulainn: It broke!?

Mash: The welded Rule Breaker bounced off!

Cú Chulainn: Ah.

Cú Chulainn: Ah—!?

Mash: The Rule Breaker rebounded on... on Cú Chulainn's head!?

Mash: I-I've seen this somewhere before!

Fujimaru 1: Altrium!

Fujimaru 2: AHOGE!

Mash: That's it!

Edison: Ugh, I didn't weld it on hard enough!

Edison: I thought that Rule Breaker could easily pierce Emiya's shield!

Edison: But I guess if you charge it head-on...the great Rho Aias still comes out on top!

Edison: The experiment...has failed!

Cú Chulainn: Who cares! Could you take this off already!?

Medea: Yeah, sure. Here you go.

Cú Chulainn: Ugh... Now I have a headache. I can't even bust through a shield...

Cú Chulainn: I've thought I would resent someone's low ranking Luck as much as this...

Mash: Umm, I don't think Luck has anything to do with it this time. It's simple a reckless experiment.

Edison: Perhaps it was a bit reckless trying to modify someone's Noble Phantasm...

Edison: Even though Fujimaru summoned me, at this rate I'll remain useless...

Mash: Edison...

Emiya: Mr. Edison, don't you think you're giving up a little too fast?

Emiya: The idea itself isn't a bad one. Rule Breaker is a broken item that could sever any contract.

Emiya: If you could land a direct hit, any Servant would be liberated from the bonds of its contract.

Emiya: ...So. For example, why not try matching it with Hrunting?

Emiya: That Noble Phantasm pursues the enemy it sniffs out. A different type of Noble Phantasm from reversing cause and effect.

Edison: Oh, Emiya, you understand me!

Emiya: Of course. You see, weapon modification and improvement are my forte.

Mash: For some reason, Emiya-senpai sounds different than usual!

Fujimaru 1: Extremely suspicious!

Fujimaru 2: Don't you think he sounds more natural now?

Medea: Of course, that boy... I mean, snob, used to be a well-mannered person to start with.

Medea: But a lot happened and now he's a bit twisted.

Emiya: Don't badmouth people to their face!

Edison: Oh... It's just as Emiya says! I can't give up after only one failure!

Edison: Once we're back in Chaldea, let's revisit what we just talked about and discuss our next plan!

Mash: ...Master, I have a feeling we shouldn't bring the two of them together.

Fujimaru 1: Let's head back, eat, and hit the sack!

Mash: Senpai is trying to escape reality, too! Please get your act together!

Fujimaru 2: Let's pretend we didn't see any of this!

Mash: You can't run away, Master! We're responsible for this disaster!

Mash: Anyway, Master, prepare yourself. I'm pretty sure Edison will, most definitely...

Mash: Come up with another crazy plan!

Edison: All right, then how about this!? Adding transformations and combining mechanisms would surely make it exciting!

Emiya: You are a genius! But wouldn't forcing the joints like that make the connecting parts more fragile?

Edison: Silly, that's our chance to make it look even cooler! Add in bolts and armor plates to give it more volume...

Edison: ...and it will be twice as large after combining! I have a feeling this thing will sell as a toy!

Emiya: Always looking at the positive side of things! I'd expect no less from the King of Inventions!

Emiya: Yes, this is wonderful! Well then, how about doing this?

Medea: ...Oh, shut up.

Medea: This is why I can't stand men who pursue their dreams and adventures. They're all good-for-nothings.

Medea: A grown-up who's a bit mellow, and calm in his judgment. That's my ideal man.

Cú Chulainn: Who cares? Anyway, could someone hurry up and heal me?

Mash: Sorry, I forgot!

Mash: Oh... Senpai!

Mash: Speaking of forgetting things, what happened to strengthening Edison's Noble Phantasm!?

Fujimaru 1: I forgot!

Fou: Fou foou.

Mash: I think that Fou said, “It's hopeless!” He's given up too!

Fujimaru 1: On to the next one!
