Spoiler pictures from Hyuuaya-san's blog.
Kapitel 88: Landkarte
[The day when we still believe in the invisible bond-.]
Vertrag: Oh, you've woken up. Here is Barsburg Great Church.
Vertrag: Nice to meet you. I'm Vertrag.
Profe: Oh my! // This time's Ea is such a cute child.
Profe: I'm Profe. Pleased to meet you.
Relict: I'm Relict. Pleased to meet you.
Relict: ...However, you sure are young... // Are you sure you'll be fine managing the Book of Hades?
Zehel : Kids are energetic, I'm sure he'll be fine.
Zehel: I'm Zehel.
Profe: Too close too close. *He's scared of you*
Landkarte: Poor him, and he's so young.... Was he poisoned?
Zehel: You're also a brat!
Fest: So it was the successor conflict inside the Barsburg House...
Fest: Forgive me. It's not something you want to talk about right.
Fest: I'm Fest. // By the way, my cause of death is poisoned. Pleased to meet you.
Profe: Landkarte. // You're the closest one to him in age so I'm sure it's easy to talk to him.
Profe: Please teach Ea various things okay.
Landkarte: I'm Landkarte. // My hobby is trying the food at various places.
Landkarte: My favorite word is *Meikyo-shisui. // My cause of death is drowning. Pleased to meet you. ♪
TN: Meikyo-shisui is a Japanese expression to know how our mind should be. Simply, it means clear and serene.
[My first impression of him was,]
Ea: ......... Ea.
Ea: My cause of death is, as you've already guessed, poisoned.
[Someone who lived his life enjoyably, the type of person that I'm not good with.]
[And he truly did become the type of person that I'm not really good dealing with.]
Landkarte: Ea! Ea!
Landkarte: Show me the Book of Hades please ♪
Ea: Get out you loafer! I'm not in the mood today.
*Do not sit on top of that*
*Do not follow me*
Landkarte: But, if you don't show the Book of Hades,
*And here I am bringing you a present properly*
Landkarte: you'll end up with an unfortunate ending by fostering this loafer.
Ea: Hey! // I just wrote it up there. Do not step on it!
Landkarte: Eeh!? It'll vanish!?
Ea: It will feels like it's being stepped, it's not pleasant.
Landkarte: I see, pardon me.
[it's too late. With this, my son will get an upper hand in his promotion...!!!]
Landkarte: Ea... You made eyes like you'll kill someone just now.
Landkarte: Was the person there the one who poisoned you?
SFX: cough cough
[He said, "I know by just looking at your eyes."]
Ea: ...It has nothing to do with you.
Ea: Furthermore, it's already...
Ea: For me who already died once,
Ea: it's not of my concern.
Ea: A shinigami, // dragging along his past life will only interfere with his work.
Landkarte: It's okay to be dragging it.
Landkarte: It's a natural feeling for a human. // The other reapers, each one of them was holding troubles and was purified too after all.
Landkarte: If you forcibly put a lid on the hatred,
Landkarte: It will never be able to be purified and will be left deep inside you. If that so, it's better to...
Landkarte: fully open the lid and spit it out until you're satisfied.
Ea: As if I can do that!!
Landkarte: It's okay, just as the light tower's guard is sleeping.
Landkarte: Relaxation is important.
Ea: ...I wonder why did I become a reaper.
Ea: I naturally inherited the ability and the knowledge to use it when I was reincarnated but,
Ea: my foundation didn't change at all.
Ea: I intently watched the romance play from the narrow corner in fortress, // and for all my life, I only know of that world.
Ea: I was only a human who lived desperately there.
Landkarte: You don't have the qualification to be a reaper with such hatred.
Landkarte: And yet...
Landkarte: Isn't that because you're much more sensitive than anyone else to human's pain...
Landkarte: that you were chosen to be God's servant to manage the destination of the people as a reaper who guides human?
Landkarte: Under these lights, the humans are attached to something, // and are desperately living for the sake of feeling secured that they are superior to the others.
Landkarte: But once they're dead, // there are plenty of people who regrets thinking, "Ah, I should have treasured something different more."
Landkarte: Even though it was too late to realize that after they were dead...
Ea: Humans are fools.
*My ears hurt*
Landkarte: I called the cause who made the humans into such a foolish being, // "impurities."
Landkarte: Attachment, vanity, // hatred... emotions other than love and hate.
Landkarte: I'm persuading lots of people to throw away such feelings.
Landkarte: No matter how much impurities are overflowing in this world, // I'm thinking that someday,
Landkarte: I want to make a pure world without hatred, just like you.
[Even though I've become a reaper, it's not like my heart has become stronger.]
Ea: ...You really are optimistic.
Landkarte: Fufu. // But I'm powerless alone myself. I need your power.
[It's just, for the first time, I've recognized an existence called comrade.]
Wolfram: ...Everyone, please take Millea with you and leave this place.
Wolfram: I've broken my promise with the warmonger not to tell others about this. // I'm sure I'll pay for this once he comes.
Kal: ...Rather, this is a good opportunity. I've been chasing after him for many years.
Kal: In order to destroy him.
[That black shadow,]
[was also the one who stood behind the pope...]
[And, the one at the ball before...]
Teito: Kal, you said that he is your brother...
Teito: He can't be... the remaining ghost...
Kal: He's Landkarte.
Teito: Landkarte... // He was supposed to be the one who helped bring me and Father to the God Houses...
Teito: Why did he...
Kal: Ten years ago...
Kal: After he took you and Vertrag away from the floating island H-8, // the remaining ghosts returned to the church once...
Relict: Zehel isn't here. He already went back?
Fest: From the beginning, he had Landkarte sent him home.
Ea: As usual, what a busy guy.
Fest: He has lots of underlings after all. // He must have it hard doing both the reaper and the sky pirate.
*I guess I'll be staying up all night...*
Profe: Ea... Do you have some time?
Profe: The incident where the Pope tried to open the Pandora's Box which led to the war this time...
Profe: This might be the longest stretch for you.
Ea: ...? You mean, it can't be solved immediately...?
Profe: There's something... I need to check up a bit...
Profe: Hey Relict, can you help me trace back the pope's past once more? // Back to about 2 years before the betrayal.
Relict: Wasn't the incident was the pope's individual act...?
Profr: He did commit the crime by himself but, // ...but some chance, there could be someone who had been instigating him for long time before.
Profe: Repeatingly whispering behind him like a shadow...
Profe: Eventually, it made him believed that he thought all of it by himself...
Profe: Somehow, I have that kind of image...
Relict: It takes a lot to see everything during those 2 years. Let's see in fast forward mode.
Profe: ...! Stop!
Relict: Here? // ...I don't see anything besides the pope though...
Profe: No... There is...!!
Pope: I'm powerless...
Shadow: No, pope... // As long as you have Verloren's power, you'll be furnished with the wisdom of the world.
Shadow: Once you have that, you can save a lot of people with it.
Relict: Black shadow...? Wars...?
Ea: No... that was...
Relict: This is bad!! We have to let Vertrag know immediately...!!
Landkarte: Too bad I was found out.
Landkarte: Seems like you are the only one I failed to kill.
Landkarte: Where are you?
Ea: Didn't you wish for peace so much...!!
Landkarte: Fufufu... Yes...I did wish for this plan to run smoothly.
Landkarte: I want to swept away all impurities from this world.
Landkarte: At first, // I wanted to make a pure world filled only with love.
Landkarte: I just couldn't do it.
Landkarte: Love and hatred were just emotions from two sides of the same coin, but the humans couldn't cut them loose from themselves. // This world continues to be defiled with this foolish play of love and hate.
Landkarte: ...Even the Verloren couldn't escape from the play of love and hate...
Landkard: And so,
Landkarte: I reached upon one conclusion.
Landkarte: If I can't erase either love or hate,
Landkarte: I'll just erase both of them.
Landkarte: By doing do, // I'm sure peace will be brought upon this world.
Landkarte: Just like,
Landkarte: welcoming death at the eternal bottom of sea where lights will never // reach upon...
Ea: What a ridiculous idealistic thought.
Landkarte: No, it's possible for me if I have Verloren's power.
Landkarte: Because, unlike Verloren, I don't have love or hate inside me.
Landkarte: I can paint this world with pure darkness.
Ea: Don't mess with me...
Landkarte: Ea... // I have taken quite a liking to you.
Landkarte: Not to mention, your power, holding the Book of Hades is quite fascinating.
Landkarte: So, what do you think?
Landkarte: If you agree to work with me, I'll help you.
Landkarte: Did he escape?
Landkarte: It can't be helped.
Landkarte: But, no matter how far you run...
Landkarte: As long as I know your soul number,
Landkarte: You can never escape from my teleportation power.
[What's going on?]
[This number is definitely Ea's...!!]
[It can't be...]
[Did he overwrite his own soul number in the Book of Hades...!?]
Landkarte: DAMN YOU... EA!!!
Konatsu: The water is overflowing you know?
Konatsu: It's unusual for you to be absentminded.
SFX: drip drip
Katsuragi: Forgive me. I was thinking about something...
Konatsu: Ayanami-sama is calling. // Wait for him at the Chief's room.
Katsuragi: I heard that the one who's targeting the Pandora's Box appeared at the ball. // Can you tell me what kind of person he was?
Katsuragi: I wasn't at the scene after all.
Konatsu: I don't know the details but...
Konatsu: He looked like something like a black shadow.
Konatsu: He might be one of the remaining ghost, Landkarte, and // he probably was trying to get his hand on the Pandora's Box all by himself after falling out with his comrades.
Konatsu: We're still searching for him but currently, we have lost his track.
Katsuragi: One of the ghost huh. It's troublesome.
Katsuragi: Then, how about Chief Ayanami?
Konatsu: After talking indifferently about this matter with Lieutenant as usual, // he left his seat...
Konatsu: He doesn't show up since then.
Katsuragi: ...Seems like the Chief has his own thinking.
Ayanami: That black shadow knew that there was only one key left to the Pandora's Box.
Hyuuga: Really? // Aya-tan talked about the key to the Black Hawk only right?
Ayanami: That's right.
Ayanami: There's a traitor inside Black hawk.
katsuragi: By the way, is Teito-kun inside the maintenance room?
Konatsu: Yes, because Zehel made a contact with Teito-kun, // he was sent there for a check up to see if there is malfunction with the brainwash.
Katsuragi: Aah, he was the one who dropped the chandelier right.
Katsuragi : Currently, there are 5 ghosts exist... // Fest and Profe are inside the prison... Zehel is also kept inside the barrier so,
Katsuragi: the one left is Landkarte and...
Katsuragi: the last one...
Katsuragi: I wonder where Ea is.
Konatsu: Err... Colonel...
Konatsu: The chandelier was dropped by Zehel...
Konatsu: You wasn't at the hall, how did you now that...?
[It can't be, the traitor is...!?]
Did you enjoy this chapter? So what do you think? Well, we all know Ea is Karu from the last chapter so, who wants to bet on Katsuragi being Landkarte??
