(Title) Period 323 – The Paru-sama’s Back!

[2]
(Anya) Wha, What’s this wind all of a sudden!

[2]
(Konoka) Ahh – ! What’s going on – ?!
(Chisame) Everyone, grab on to something!

[3]
(Ako) Ah…!

[5]
(Negi) Everyone…!

[2]
(Negi) Kuh…

[3]
(Fate) I certainly hadn’t expected that we would be connected to the other side of the Gate.

[4]
(Fate) But even that doesn’t matter right now.

[5]
(Fate) However it goes, the fate of both worlds will be decided by this battle!
(Negi) Ugh…

[1]
(Fate) Right here and now –

[2]
(Fate) This battle is everything!!

[4]
(Negi) Uwooh – !

[5]
(Haruna?) Whoooa – !

[6]
(Haruna) Ugh – Negi-kun and Fate-kun really aren’t holding back – ! [No really, she calls him Fate-kun.]
(Haruna) How’s it going, Chachamaru-san?!

[7]
(Chachamaru) It’s no good. The spirit furnace is malfunctioning. We’ve lost steerage.
(Haruna) From a tornado like this?!
(Chachamaru) This is not simply a tornado. It is turbulent mana.

[1]
(Haruna) Blargh?!

[2]
(Chachamaru) Floating rocks, regardless of size, are also being thrown about due to the turbulence.
(Haruna) Say that sooner – ! (offset) We’ll die – !

[3]
(Haruna) And gaaah – ! We’re getting sucked in – !
(Chachamaru) To make a conjecture, this turbulence is likely a phenomenon born from the difference in mana concentration between the two worlds.
(Chachamaru) Incidentally, at this rate, there is a 76.2% risk of our entire ship being crushed the instant we cross the boundary of the spirit world…
(Haruna) Don’t just calmly analyse this – !

[4]
(Nodoka) Haruna – !

[5]
(Haruna) Damn – the retrorockets aren’t doing anything, even at full power!
(Haruna) Fire anchors 1 to 3!!

[2]
(Haruna) Wha,
(Chachamaru) Ah…

[3]
(Girls) Aahhhh – !

[4]
(Haruna) Allllright! Oh, here we go!
(Haruna) Now this really is the Great Paru-sama’s biggest pinch!
(Chachamaru) Wha,
(Haruna) This is what you call a climax!

[5]
(Haruna) Decrease engine pressure! Disengage propulsion!!
(Haruna) We’ll follow the flow and descend(?) !

[6]
(Chachamaru) Captain, giant rocks are approaching from both sides!!
(Haruna) Whe~?!

[7]
(Haruna) Kuh –
(Haruna) Adeat!

(Haruna) 「Imperium Graphices」
(Haruna) Infernal Aniki DX, Double Impact!!!

[2]
(Chachamaru) As expected from Captain Paru!
(Chachamaru) Ah –

[3]
(Chachamaru) Another giant rock directly ahead!
(Haruna) We won’t make it! Open all gunports still operational! Fire all barrels!!

[4]
(Haruna) Demonition Torpedoes, Fire 1 and 2!
(Chachamaru) Impact confirmed! Spirit Cannon, standby!
(Haruna) Fire main cannon – !!
(Chachamaru) Firing!

[7]
(Chachamaru) We’ve broken through! Approaching spirit world boundary!
(Haruna) Ugh, but this…!


Page 7

[1]
(Haruna) This…. this is bad. The pressure’s insane…!!
(Haruna) At this rate, the ship’s…

[2]
(Haruna) Uwooooh – !

[6]
(Kaoru) Mm?

[7]
(Kaoru) What’s that?


Page 8

[1]
(Kaoru?) Holy – ?!

[2]
(Natsume) N-N-Now the sky’s dropping rocks – ?!
(Kaoru) Hold it, this can’t be right! Ain’t people gonna die from this?!

[3]
(Gandolfini) This isn’t good!!

[4]
(Gandolfini) Are those floating rocks from the Magic World side?! Everyone, move! Deal with those falling rocks!!
(Gandolfini) Forget the summoned demons! It’ll be fine if we leave it to our students!

[5]
(Kataragi) Understood!

[7]
(Kataragi) Mm…

[8]
(Kataragi) That’s…

[9]
(Haruna) Whooa – !

[1]
(Fuuka) Whe?
(Sakurako) What is it?
(Fuuka) Ah…

[4]
(Sakurako) Huh…?

[5]
(Sakurako) It’s Paru!
(Fuuka) Wha,
(Sakurako) Paru was on it! (offset) The UFO…
(Fuuka) She was?


Page 10

[1]
(Ayaka) ?!
(Ayaka-phone) Riiiing.
(Fumika) Something fell!
(Madoka) What the?

[2]
(Ayaka) Hello? Fuuka-san? What?
(Ayaka) What did you say? Paru on a UFO? Please calm down!

[3]
(Fumika) We’ll go take a look – !
(Ayaka) Ah, wait! (offset) It’s dangerous!
(Misa-aside) What’s going on~?

[4]
(Fumika) Whaah?
(Madoka) Whoa… What is this – ? (offset) A fish?

[5]
(Haruna) Gah – what the –
(Haruna) The door’s bent…
(Girls) ?!

[6]
(Haruna-sound) Hmph!
(Fumika) Wha…

[7]
(Haruna) Hey, it’s Mahora! Oh Wings, that is the Light of Mahora – !
(Haruna) What the, half the wings are gone!!
(Haruna) Ahh! My beloved lower vertical tail wing and port main wing – !

[『翼よ!あれが巴里の灯だ』 (lit. Oh Wings! That is the Light of Paris) is the Japanese title for the 1957 film The Spirit of St. Louis.]

[1]
(Haruna) Whew –
(Haruna) Man – it’s been too long –

[2]
(Haruna) Mm?

[3]
(Fumika) Pa…
(Madoka) Paru…

[4]
(Haruna) Oh…
(Haruna) Oooh…

[5]
(Haruna) Ev,
(Haruna) Everyone – !

[6]
(Fuuka) Hey! It’s Haruna – ♪
(Haruna) Bweh – ?!

[7]
(Haruna) Bwebahgehbahbeh –

[8]
(Haruna) What in the frick was that?!
(Fuuka) Hey Paru, what is that? An escape pod from the mothership?
(Fuuka) Did you just barely escape from the aliens with your life?
(Haruna) The hell?


Page 12

[1]
(Madoka) Here, gimme your hand! You’re all beat up, huh Saotome?
(Madoka) Where did you disappear off to? Everyone was worried about you.

[2]
(Haruna) Oh.

[3]
(Haruna) …

[4]
(Madoka) Wha…

[6]
(Madoka) Huh?

[7]
(Sakurako) Oooh ♡

[8]
(Madoka) Wha –


Page 13

[1]
(Madoka) Hold it… Saotome?!
(Madoka) Wha… what is it?

[2]
(Girls) What’s this all of a sudden?!
(Sakurako-aside) What kind of pairing is this?
(Fumika) Wah – !

[3]
(Haruna) Maaaaan~
(Madoka) Hng,

[4]
(Haruna) It’s really been just tooo looong~!
(Madoka-sound) Creak creak [creaking bones]
(Madoka) Gaaaaah – ?!!

[5]
(Haruna) Ahahah, m’bad, m’bad! I just missed this so much – even someone like Paru-sama would tear up!

[6]
(Haruna) This is great! Great!! What a normal-looking face! Just a regular person, without any horns or cat ears growing out!
(Haruna) I’m back!! Back!
(Haruna) I can’t believe I’m feeling this being-backness from Kugimi’s normal-looking face!!


Page 14

[1]
(Madoka) I just know you’re making fun of me somehow.
(Madoka-aside) Don’t call me Kugimin.
(Haruna) No, I mean it, that really got to me, Kugimin.

[2]
(Hakase) It’s been a while, Haruna-san!
(Haruna) Oh, hey, Hakase!

[2]
(Hakase) I picked up an emergency signal from Chachamaru!

[3]
(Haruna) Ooh, that’s right! She’s at the cockpit. Go on in.

[4]
(Hakase) Chachamaru!
(Hakase) Chachamaruu – !

[5]
(Chachamaru) Hakase…

[6]
(Hakase) Chachamaru!

[7]
(Hakase) Wha – this is horrible!
(Hakase) Just what were you up to on the other side?! (offset) Though I’ve anticipated about this much –

[8]
(Hakase) Especially the damage to your chest! If it was off by just 3 centimetres, you main engine would be totally gone. All functions would have been suspended…


Page 14

[1]
(Chachamaru) It’s all right, Hakase.

[2]
(Chachamaru) Even if this frame is destroyed, as long as the recorded memories are safe, I won’t die.
(Chachamaru) More importantly…
(Chachamaru) As long as I can be of help to Negi-sensei and the others…

[3]
(Hakase) Hmm, I see…
(Hakase) Well, that’s true. If you think about it that way…

[4]
(Hakase) No, still incorrect!
(Chachamaru) Hakase – ?!

[5]
(Hakase) You might not be able to maintain a soul with just memories, you know?
(Hakase) Good grief. The significance of this makes you a valuable sample. You need to properly realise this yourself…
(Chachamaru) Wha…

[6]
(Chachamaru) Hakase…
(Chachamaru) Mmfh –

[7]
(Chachamaru) Haka…se?

[8]
(Hakase) Good grief… you’re just a little girl…
(Hakase) And you’re this beat up because you tried so hard…


Page 16

[1]
(Hakase) You did your best, Chachamaru.
(Hakase) I’ll get you back to as lovely as you were before, right away.

[2]
(Chachamaru) Thank you…
(Chachamaru) Hakase…

[3]
(Hakase) By the way, what is this costume?
(Chachamaru) This is…. actually, I… with Negi-sensei…
(Hakase) Huh?! You mean,

[4]
(Ayaka) Haruna-san,

[5]
(Ayaka) Please explain this to me fully.
(Text) Is it now time to know the truth…?!!
