|Amazing! Now, I am not frightening, I am not frightening, you know~ Won't you please entrust yourself to me~?
You are a newborn that has only just came into this world! Both prudence and reason--cast them aside! Entrust everything unto your senses~
Please gaze at this five yen coin! You are getting veeeery sleepy….
Let us slowly remember, the time when you were a slumbering child within the safety of your mother's embrace! No, the time when you were yet unborn, that`s right, that`s right......♪
|I-I am...... I am a baby, gugu gaga......♪|
|That’s right, just like that, yes~? Amazing... ♪|
|...... What have you been doing all this time, Wataru?
Tori and Yuzuru are preparing for the tea party, so I'd ask you to be done with your prank by the time they finish.
On occasion, your behavior is a negative influence on those children.
|Oh dear, please do not interfere, Eichi. I am at an important part; kindly wait a minute. Until I have properly hypnotized him, I must concentrate...♪|
|Hypnosis? You`re quite versatile aren`t you, you seem as though you could even use magic.|
|Hypnosis is a respectable medicine; my versatility is my selling point, after all!
This, too, is but one of my special skills, which number as many as my worldly desires… Well, I seldom use it, I suppose?
Those who have truly discovered themselves--nay, the students of Yumenosaki Academy of strong character-- My meddling does not very much reach them.
However, this child seems altogether quite simple and honest, or, shall I say, simply simple~♪
Curiously, he seems quite vulnerable to hypnosis. As he is, he is a fascinating subject to work with, so shall I call forth memories of a past life, or such......? ☆
|Don’t play with humans like toys; that boy belongs to another 『unit.』 If something were to happen, surely it won’t end with mere bloodshed?|
| Well, for coming here with his sword drawn to strike at you, such is his punishment. Though even I will not touch upon the depths of his heart--I have no right to such a thing.
Not I, nor anyone... ♪
|Well, I suppose that’s fine; please keep it in moderation. Even if you don't use hypnotism, I can guess the reason that he came to attack me.
Although I wouldn't call it a waste of time to confirm it.
|Fufufu! Your attitude is that of one who has everything in the palm of his hand, as one would expect of His Majesty, the Emperor...☆|
|I only wish to save time and effort. As I happen to have neither one on hand.|
|You need not be so humble. At any rate, humans cannot live for two hundred years. It is acceptable to at least fully enjoy a this mere fleeting, ephemeral dream to your heart's content.
Be that as it may. There, he is hypnotized, and now this child shall answer to any question.
Naturally, he is blended in with lies or misunderstandings that he has set his heart on, and his validity shall be splintered.
|Hypnosis is like that, isn`t it; I’ve read about it in a book. ...Um, Kanzaki-kun, is it? I just have one thing I want to check with you.
Did you attack us of your own volition? Or, perhaps, were you ordered to, by Keito?
The tyrant tormenting Hasumi-dono… Eichi Tenshouin, I must punish...
I absolutely cannot accept the dissolution of 『Akatsuki』. I… I will protect 『Akatsuki』.
|Hmm. That’s about what I expected. Is it simply that this boy just recklessly ran here on his own......?
How boring, if only Keito really was seriously targeting me it would have been nice...
|Hasumi-dono is a just and upright gentleman, who holds no desire for bloodshed, or anything of the sort. It was wholly myself, acting on my own authority.
Furthermore, I somewhat wanted to try cutting up an actual person with a Japanese sword...♪
|I`ll disregard the latter part. Hmm, that’s enough. Wataru, can you snap him out of it?
I can’t talk with him like this; if I don’t convince him, how many more times will I have to be attacked?
|I suppose it can’t be helped, although it was quite fun… Un, deux, trois, and you will return to your true heart.... There you go ☆|
|......Haa, what did I..?! Y-You! What did you do to me~?!|
|Please calm down. Although I envy how straightforward you are, you should broaden your outlook.
Even if you attack or assassinate me, do you think that will make Keito happy?
Relax, let's have a short talk. Even if you challenge me a hundred times over, with all your strength, Wataru and Yuzuru will stop you in your tracks. When all members of 『fine』 are gathered, nobody in this world will cause us harm.
| Do not worry, Your Majesty, the Emperor! I have a duty to bind this insurgent up tightly, not even Hiki* Tenkou will be able to escape!
Aah, I wish to master that technique as well...☆
|What are you aiming for, by learning only skills unnecessary for an idol...?
Well, that’s fine, I suppose, your freedom is what makes you who you are. Please enjoy your life to your heart`s content; I envy you.
Now, then. Kanzaki-kun, the tea is almost ready. While we’re drinking it, let us relax and chat.
Once you understand my purpose, perhaps we may become friends as well.
|Ggh! Claiming you are aiding me in order to gain power! Speak your intentions frankly!
Until I hear a convincing explanation as to why you must disband us, 『Akatsuki』, I shall aim for you over and over again…!
|You’re rather rough, hmm? How antiquated...
Of course, your 『Akatsuki』 is No. 2 in Yumenosaki Academy, right after our 『fine』. If you were to disband, that would benefit neither I nor anyone else.
Despite you having suffered several embarrassing defeats to the likes of 『Trickstar』......
Fundamentally, you have made many significant accomplishments, and have a considerable fanbase. Being No.2 isn`t just for show, you have value.
However. For these very reasons, I do not understand.
For what reason, I wonder, is 『Akatsuki』 is contented with being No.2...?
The day I could pour all my strength into a blood-soaked quarrel with Keito….Ever since I was a small child, I`ve been eagerly waiting for this for a long time”.
If Keito still believes me to be ‘A delicate, sickly young master, incapable of doing anything’. If he’s holding back, if he’s doing this out of consideration for me..
I won't forgive Keito, even if I die.
This time, "that sort of thing" is the situation. I want to become a friend on equal terms with Keito.
