Alright, dearies, it is time for the Gorey Games!
Seeing as how we've reached 25 of these, I may make an extra-special wincard for the winner. Who knows? Ahuhuhu~!
Regardless, I shall take 36 of you.
The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland
>I could rail some of that sweet Litchi ass if I wanted, butlerboy.
>At closer inspection, it's going less reading and more flipping through the pages before sucking the texts into his body.
>A small bug crawls out one of the mask's eyes and into one of the others in a small arc. Apparently insects aren't too picky when it comes to building codes.
Truth is mine! Knowledge is mine! AZURE IS MINE! MINE MINE MINE MINE! Girl...take azure? Consume! Devour azure, return to me!
The Masked One
>Baki lays along the grass, and ponders his eyes towards the skies above.
You do need to make up for today. I'd suggest you lay off the cup noodles; that shit has sodium levels beyond what I've witnessed from your expression/performance today.
If someone arrives late feel free to ask a swap with this filler
When I got family around.
Alright, what's got your panties in a twist?
It's a joke.
Youkai, 'monsters', a lot of them are man-eaters because we taste so good. Dime a dozen back home.
>Rika shivers a bit, before more or less reflexively assuming a defensive posture.
Do I LOOK like I've got anything blue on me?
Uh. Kid. I don't think arm wrestling's gonna help.
Oh, quite whining. This way you'll just get used to the discomfort, too.
Alright, dearies. Let's say, oh, five to seven minutes for any swaps or corrections.
I am ready to fight... At court
Yo I just got home. C-can I have a swap?
It... Of all the people that had to be in my district, it had to be HIM. Whatever. Go ahead when you're ready, fr-- Miss.
I, Reigen Arataka, accept this challenge.
I might've been gone a while but that doesn't mean I'm any worse an officer. Let's go!
Time to perform some dirty deeds done dirt cheap.
>Not even fifth best girl, go have gross vore tentacle sex with her, see if I care.
>Hibiki listens to the warning signals in his head and jumps back away from the blob.
What kind of monster can do such a thing?!
>He seems pretty protective of his little black book now.
Arakune must be one of those then, he's definitely not human. At least not anymore.
This is cool I'm liking this already. Yeah, I visioned this already:
A fellow martial artist steps boldly into the Arena with out question, we pardon our greetings and depart into the cornucopia. Our actions do the talking. Our fists of fury fling among the rank of warriors before us, here WE GOOOO, LET'S FIGHT!
Alright, Monster Kid for the monkey, and the pitifully slow human for the dark and brooding human.
With that, we shall begin shortly.
>He's so far gone he probably doesn't even know what "blue" is. However, by sheer luck, he pulls his sentence through.
No...Girl, azure weak. Little connection...alternate...cross, intersect, event horizon is now, arriving at combination!
>Ready when you are.
>*Filthy Acts Done at a Reasonable Price
>The only ass you're ever getting is Kagura's when he says to wipe it. Seriously though, Makoto is one of the best.
>It seems to enjoy absorbing the books, as he makes several content noises as he devours them and their knowledge.
Finally, closer, reaching, AZURE! True azure fades, but has arrived! Soon, will devour!
Alright, that's goo-
Wait a second... You're a monster girl!
I lost a bet and now I have to act 'nice' for three days. I'm sure you of all people know how torturous this is.
I'm whatever I want to be.
Yeah yeah whatever. I just underestimated Shen, for a clumsy muscle head he was smart... I hate this. But I'm sooo glad you are enjoying my misfortune.
It seems as though immediately, we run into marital difficulties and suntan lotion complaints. You are all still better off than those who never reached the park at all, however. Ahuhuhu~!
...Yes, dearie, what of it?
NO. No you shouldn't, that's a demon you're thinking of, you idiot.
>A goddamn ghost pops in out of thin air, the water splashing against it's face harmlessly.
>She floats a good three feet away anyhow.
Speak slower! How can anyone understand you like this, huh?
Oooh, you poor bastard. Bet with who?
>Arakune from BlazBlue.
>He whips out a cheeky grin across his face, as he failed to mention what he did.
I already did actually. Prior to my arrival I ran several marathons across Tokyo, so I can get here.
There's definitely no morals, but It's obviously able of thought.
>Hibiki seems a little disappointed that he wasn't able to kill the blob and sits on the grass.
>The sad truth, Hibiki is one of the best boys though, too bad he's never going to get anything.
>He rests his head on his chin and thinks for a minute.
Is it waiting for Noel to show up? I doubt that'd happen.
I think we were just too young, y'know? And then our parents got involved. Her dad got a black eye due to my mom and my dad ended up paralyzed. That was frickin' crazy!
I'm packing meat and I'm still getting heat. Crap. Oh well.
It seems as though one of the happiest tributes does not seem so. How odd. Regardless, several of you are quite stingy with your money today. That does not bode well for you, ahuhuhu~!
...Also that is quite the terrifying stuffed...animal?
N-No? Dearie, I have never been out of the Underground.
Something's wrong with my oil tank. How did it get all out?
I can't believe I've sunken so low that I get enjoyment by driving someone's face into a cake. I'm a grown man, I had "children", and I ruled the Seven Seas...
...On my part, that was bloody hilarious, and you had it coming! HAH!
Do not fear, my fellow patriots! I have merely escaped from this most dissatisfactory gauntlet. Nobody will stop me.
>Arakune, Blazblue. Science man turned into a crazy black puddle because he fucked with the Boundary.
>He lets her float, less out of disinterest this time and more being caught in his own ramblings.
Understanding...unnecessary, not required, only azure! Azure brings reality, brings truth, brings end! End of crossroad! Converging on now!
>Hibiki needs to get some. He deserves it, maybe Kagura can hook him up for some shenanigans. He's also fun to play.
>It cocks its "head" at her name.
Vermilion? Vermillion! AZURE! Azure through crossroad has tread! Soon knowledge is mine! Salvation!
>Arakune doll! Comes with miniature tartar.
>It could not care less about Go's torn jacket. What a prick this blob is.
That is...quite the power outage. Oh my...
...Dearie, all monsters are located in the Underground. I do wish to know more about this island, however.
Of all the ways I could've died, it had to be like this. I could've sworn I was wearing my restraints, but it bloody seems not--
...Ahem. Life is good.
Rational thought, I mean.... And why not just attack it anyhow? It clearly doesn't have any reason not to be exterminated.
No, I mean she's an actual demon.
>"The species, that is...."
I call him "Bakebake".
>There's a loud series of pops as more and more appear in the air, forming a wall of ghosts.
Crossroads. Crossroads of what?
Go. Like, the ancient strategy game that newcomers don't stand a chance in?
After the last ride, I think I had enough. I want food!
Or, the game you play in the bushes with someone. Now that's something always interesting to be part of.
But it's not time for Trick A Tree. WAIT! Are those actual ghosts?!
After that unearthly chaos, I do suppose it is only fair things do quiet down for the night, though someone does attempt to break park rules.
...Under the surface, dearie.
Of course they are!
>One of them sticks it's tongue out.
>Hibiki catches it after it had already left a mark on his face, he returns it after the ride is over.
This is yours Miss.
>I wouldn't mind Hibiki paired with Makoto, she likes cute boys so it'd make sense.
>The creatures stare gives him goosebumps.
What kind of nonsense is this thing saying..? I've only heard of Makoto and Rachel being here so I wouldn't get my hopes up.
>Hibiki tries to use his crows to land softly.
>Does this kill me?
As much as I hate to waste the opportunity.. I've been ordered to not kill it. This comes from several ranks higher than me.
>Yotsuba stares in disbelief for a few seconds
The Feast already? Goodness sake, dearies.
Relax, I'll get it in a minute.
>She leaves for a moment, to come back with an ice cream cone
I thought demons were supposed to be ugly or something..?
>He lets out a rough sigh and stops.
Alright that's enough for now Miss, heh, unless you still want to sit on me.
You took the bait.
I would regale the body count, however it may send some of you into a crying fit.
>The blob impales the girl, and takes her to the bushes for...
>He's lost it now. He's gone all the way.
CROSSROAD! AZURE PATH LEADS TO SINGULARITY! TAKE AZURE, DESTROY PATH, END END END END! STUDY ALWAYS!
>Salmon is top tier.
>Weight is 1-1000 kg, age is unknown, birthday is (get this) April Fools Day. The more you know.
>Yesss. It would be great to watch Hibiki weigh his options as Makoto punches Kagura in the head for being Kagura.
>It continues its incoherent rambling, as if it would stop for any reason.
Sankisankisankisankishin Tsukyomigigigi, azure looms, weave threads! Protect, but destroy, soon, freedom!
>Fun fact: Anime Girls are high in trans fat. Watch what you eat, kids.
And if I tried to put it down?
Well? What's the verdict?
>"The residents of Makai always look...basically human."
Helps them blend in with humans better. Besides, they look nicer this way, I guess.
>The demon slips off quickly, before turning around and picking up the bricks off him without any apparent trouble.
Do you even play, like, chess?
You just want to destroy everything, huh?
>He offers the stuffed animal that resembles a blue fish with an eyepatch to the operator to help comfort.
I guess I'm not going to end up with this after all.
What are you shouting at me for? These puns aren't THAT crappie. I'd even go as far to say that they're TOAD-ally awesome!
And there goes another of of you, dearies.
That... was satisfying.
You sure are crabby tonight. I don’t quite sea what all the hostility's for.
>He isn't listening anymore, not that he was listening very closely in the first place, but now it's not even slightly paying attention.
FOREVER! PEACE, TRANQUIL, AZURE SILENCE! UNINTERRUPTED ETERNALLY! YES YES YES YES!
>No. Did you say and I just missed it?
>There it was again. It hadn't payed much heed to it the first time, but the name appeared again.
>As of then, only anger flowed through its body.
Damn it! Nothing, nothing nothing nothing! Beast, worthless! Azure, proof! Proof! End of singularity, begin of study!
Thus, more well-deserved rest.
Could you please stand beside the nearest doorway?
>Sorry missed it.
I'm from a world called Eos, it's riddled with monsters, some of which are taller than most buildings.
>He smirks and starts letting the bricks fall from his back.
Hell of a lot of fun to take down.
Looks or no, she's definitely the nicer of you two.
>He stays still letting the woman take the bricks off.
You must be her handler or something if she listens to you.
Two quite terrifying events for two tributes.
I suppose the human leader shall find himself a new wife by the end of the day.
Please, young man. I assure you it is for a just cause.
Who'd you get the orders from?
Or stone, or marble, or metal, crystal, gold, silver, ivory....
>After a long moment, she slinks away, glaring at it.
That's Makai demons, polite to a fault.
>The demon sets the bricks down carefully.
>"My, ah...master, as it were, sir. Lady Rika was the one who summoned me, and...."
We have a history.
Gee, I didn't think it'd be that scary.
>Her literal wall of ghosts dissipates, the individual ones floating off in random directions.
...Or not, I suppose.
Also, dearie, how do you wave with no hands?
Do you have a point, or are you just trying to be a smarta- err I mean yes those work too I suppose!
>Really? Yee, I pulled it off.
>Hibiki, sensing the beasts anger, falls back into a defensive stance.
If I fight you I will bring you back to her and she'll definitely contain you!
Professor Kokonoe, or should I say they're officially from Lord Kagura.
But I assure you, as long as it's an order it would be me giving my life to protect that creatures.
>He waves with his tail. It's quite a sight for his friend. He's basically swishing his hind-end back and forth!
Especially not now.
...I can't explain why I'm doing this. It has to be the human wizard from earlier. Dude put a curse on me!
>He peaks from the floor, with his eyes star struck.
T-T-Taller than most buildings, that sounds cool as hell. We're talking about bigger than most dinosaurs too right? the closest prehistoric thing we've got running in our world is killer caveman named pickle.
Regardless... my father would love to hunt one of those suckers down with his bare hands. This give me plenty of reason to train, if he can take down a monstrous elephant that survived artillery fire.
Ah, a rather gory death to bring us down to three.
I don't find "smartass" to be a harmful word. I mean, you went in there totally unprepared. Did you expect you'd win?
...I can have a lot spookier than ghosts, too.
Ko..ko...noe. Huh. I think that I've heard that name a few times before.
But, say...if you were incapacitated...?
I’m feeling really tanked, I can't lie to you. If we say the wrong things, we might get schooled. We'll be in hot water soon if we keep this up.
The human leader got his revenge, I suppose.
>After the last brick is gone he stands up and takes off his jacket to dust it off.
I have a feeling you don't just have one in you employ. I'm surprised though, this place is filled with nice looking demons and monsters.
Yup, one's so big when they walk they cause earthquakes. There's a turtle that's actually a mountain even, thing's gigantic!
>It continues its rambling as it absorbs more textbooks. The librarian is going to be pissed, I'll tell you that much.
>Are you Kastelle? I really have no idea.
>It writhes with anger. Disturbed insects crawl in and out of its disgusting flesh.
NGHYAHAHA! NOT...NOT KOKONOE! NO! REFUSE! RESEARCH IS MINE! TRUTH IS MINE!
>Pushing foreigners aside to assure your victory
Perhaps you are more a patriot than I initially believed...
Don't play koi with me, I know you knew what we were getting into. Sounds like you’re a bit tongue-tide.
How uneventful a finale. Regardless, I do believe we have our winner!
...The human's leader, Donald Trump. Congratulations, dearie!
Placements will be posted momentarily.
He won? He won. Urgh. Congratulations to him, and thank you dearly for hosting, fr-- Miss.
Thanks for hosting, Muffet. I was so close!
And thus, let us see how you all fared.
I’m surprised you know of such current affairs. It a-piers you have no earthly idea what's going to happen soon.
>WE ARE GOING TO BUILD A WALL
>AND MAKE THE BEASTKIN PAY FOR IT
>Congrats, and thanks for hosting Gorey.
Hell you must be a million times stronger than me, if you can take down creatures that tall.
It sounds like you're trying to make a loophole, but I assume you, if you try anything I am obligated to fight you.
>Nice, but no, anyway though back to best girls.
You should definitely calm down before it comes to use fighting, I assure you I won't lose.
>Hibiki definitely seems ready to strike at the slightest movement.
Hey, all I did was summon some ghosts, it's not like I actually DID anything, did I?
Demons? Nah, just her. Few other youkai, though, excluding my creations.
Pft. What do you mean "nice-looking"?
>She reaches in to her satchel, and pulls out a small book, examining it, and casting an inconsequential little spell on it, before whistling sharply in Arakune's direction.
Alright, alright, fine.
Congrats, I guess. And thanks for the show, Muffet.
They're all gone anyhow, you know.
Listen, guy. I like humans. I AM human. But the way he's wording it, it sounds like he's not against ending reality for the sake of knowledge.
>Yes. Best girls like Squirreltits.
>Maybe because it forgot why it was raving, or maybe because of a rare shot of clarity, the monster calms itself.
Silence...deep, unending, forever, azure abyss. Let me fall. Forever drifting.
>With a sickening noise, the creature bends over backwards towards the whistle.
Shrill, annoying. Weak azure, weak soul, weak memory. No knowledge, no path, only sustenance.
I don't do it alone, I have three frien-.. Brothers that I fight with. But my father trained the king how to fight and in turn I taught the prince to fight.
Youkai? Anyway, yeah, nice looking, ya'know? Beauty wise.
>He crosses his bulky arms a little awkward at having to explain it.
What did you mean by creations as well though?
Shen who? And what kind of genius DOESN'T take a challenge seriously?
>Experimentally, she waves the now-ensorcelled book at him.
Calling my soul weak...hmpf....
You mean "looking sorta human-like", huh? Normal enough where I live.
>She snaps her fingers, a trio of small, ghost-like things, and a winged, floating eye appears in the air around her with a series of POPs. The angel flinches a bit.
They're not that bad, really. They're not even as scary as me.
Even still, I am willing to put my life on the line for the orders of my superior. I know how that sounds but, I am just a tool, trained and honed my whole life until the day I started serving Lord Kagura.
>Second best? Probably Lambda or Trinity for me.
Let you fall? It almost sounds like you're asking for death.
>He relaxes from his own stance, he definitely looks a little confused.
I don't know how much simpler I can put it. I don't care about you enough to be an ally or enemy.
>He turns toward the book.
Azure...is all! Insignificant. Grimoire...azure gate!
>The blob slithers over to sample the book.
>I'm not sure whether or not that was a hint, but they are pretty cute too.
>It continues its absurd speech.
Silent...silent...haven! Azure gives salvation! Azure gives knowledge! Knowledge will set free!
>Patience growing thin..
Well, yeah, but so do I. So could you please get off my leg?
>Before he even realizes what he's doing, he has his weapon out and about to swing at the floating creatures, he stops himself just in time, barely.
Wha.. This things are definitely monsters! The only people that use these are an enemy nation if ours!
Well, I don't really use it much, I'm a big sword kind of guy.
It's only three days. Surely no one is going to take advantage of that. As soon as it's up I can be myself again.
No, I'm an assassin, if you hadn't called out and alerted that creature I would have incapacitated it with a binding Ars.
>It wasn't, if I gave you a hint it'd be obvious.
>Hibiki seems less than pleased with his job of observing this creature.
For something that claims to know a lot this thing makes no sense.
Th-Thanks for the nice first experience guys
I'll have to come back with another lad next time
>She quickly tosses it off in a direction, slowly moving to the sides.
What, Bakebakes and Evil Eyes? They're a dime a dozen.
>The group forms a line, and she holds a hand out, a beam of energy the size of her torso erupting from her palm and engulfing the monsters, which all explode with another POP.
You're awfully quick on the draw, you know that?
Aren't I, like, the MOST likely person to exploit it?
I just told you they're gone.
It doesn't even seem to give a crap. Besides, it wasn't paying too much attention to you.
>Have a good one.
It's fine. It's just that I think it's time for me to leave.
Big sword kind of guy? Cool.
>He smiles and reveals his scarred palms.
You can already tell by the condition of these hands that I'm a seasoned fighter, granted I'm interested in where ever you're from if you've got beasts roaming about. You mentioned a prince of some sort?
>Like a dog to a stick, it chases after the book and devours it.
>Only to hurl it back out, the text covered in black slime.
False! False! Lead not to truth, only lies! Farther from azure! Worthless worthless worthless!
>Alright. This is a little abrupt, but I'm going to head off soon, it's nearly 3 am.
>It writhes some more, equally dissatisfied, probably with its empty...stomach?
>Done with the rant, it slithers away towards a vent, and climbs inside before vanishing.
>He stands there for a minute before accepting the situation as being safe enough.
... I'm just use to having to swing at nearly everything that isn't human, well at least that doesn't look human..
>The huge hunk of metal that is his sword busts into small balls of light and fades away.
Haha, the monsters wouldn't even feel punches through their thick hides. Even guns barely do the job.
W-what.. I don't understand what you were trying to mean with that.
Your dad's smart. Sometimes people aren't worth making friends over
>The demon behind him can be heard sighing in relief, and saying "goodness me..." under her breath.
Hehehehe. When you get raised by an evil spirit, you develop a tolerance to nonhumans. Besides, it's more fun to swap a bit of banter before you smack the crap outta things.
Not THOSE ghosts. They're not really normal ones.
Do you think it would've mattered, in that situation? Besides, I distracted him easy enough.
Figured there's a limit to what I can expend. I'm built for what I'm conditioned to. Nice knowing you've got literal dinosaurs roaming about. Hey the name's Baki Hanma by the way.
>He extends his hands for a manly handshake.
I don't have an incredibly large amount of free time tonight, there are a few things fermenting back at the lab that will need my attention in the next few hours, but for now I've decided there's no reason not to go part hunting.
Does anyone have anything they're not using? Has anyone need a corpse removed?
...Can you repeat the question, dearie?
Me, as I have a nation to back me up. The rest are claims.
...I'll break my silence just to get this deal done. Twenty corpses, and Oliver hasn't lifted a finger in order to bring them to you. I'm dreadfully sorry for the long wait, and I'm sure that it wasn't the weather's fault this time.
Would you be happy if I were to tell you I have them here right now?
But you said swords after you said shield.. Let's be serious though, the big sword I use is more for crushing than cutting.
>Guts, the fuck kind of one-sided fight is that?
Don't get me wrong, I can live with 'em but.. Only if they don't constantly try to kill me, but having a nice look to them helps to.
>He turns and gives the demon a little wink and turns back laughing a bit.
>The two bulky hands meet, the handshake is one of legends, like between God and zeus.
Baki huh? I'm Gladiolus Amicitia, but you can call me Gladio. After a certain point of strength though the monsters are nothing, even the metal ones that come out at night.
I'm not saying for the fact that someone here might squeal.
Hello Ms. Madaraki. I was waiting for you to tell you I freed my schedule up.
My daddy is the smartest! He is always right and never wrong. Like today he taught me toast is best with jam.
Twenty? Well, I would be pleasantly surprised, at least. Luckily I managed to find enough to hold us over in this place, but I'm still pretty dangerously low, so if you have them I'll be willing to make the transaction here and now.
Are they entire corpses or are there pieces missing?
Oh, that's great news. When can I bring you in?
Are you saying what because you didn't hear me and want me to repeat myself or because you're just surprised at something I said?
Hmmm, what kind of jam? If he says anything other than strawberry, well then I have some bad news for you.
...I'd much rather prefer to keep all of my body parts, thank you dearie.
Are you sure? I can remove them and even fiddle with your eyes a bit to make them see normally if you'd be at a loss without the extra eyes. I can even give you prosthetics.
Eyeballs don't come often, you know.
Well, now that the monster is gone I must now excuse myself.
I have forgotten to give you my name last time though, it is Hibiki Kohaku, captain in the Novus Orbis Librarium.
Please have a good night Miss, I feel we shall meet again.
Anytime these next two weeks. Now back to sleep with me.
...Please don't come any closer than you already are. I do not feel comfortable whatsoever.
What if they just look like ghosts?
>The demon smiles nervously, offering a curtsy accentuated by the wings.
You're just a regular old pervert. And melee? Come on, now. Honestly, I doubt you'd even taste good.
Oh, so you're saying I'm untrustworthy?
The answer was "no" then and it's "no" now! What the HELL makes you think I'd agree to that?
Rika, Rika Asakura. Later.
I can't make any excuses. I've finally got them all ready, and I'm happy to say that they're here with me now. You said twenty corpses when we made the deal, remember? My memory may not be the greatest, but I never, ever break a promise.
Entire corpses; ten male, ten female. What Oliver does with them, I'll never know. Did you want specific ones?
Why don't you just sleep in my lab? I see no reason not to get started right away. The address is easy to find and I leave the front door unlocked. Just ask for Veronica and she'll know I sent you.
I wasn't planning on it, but that's still a shame. It looks like you've already gotten an augmentation or two, so an operation wouldn't be too different to that.
The advancement of science, ideally.
Even though it seems like that doesn't matter to people anymore.
I'd almost forgotten, actually. Between new patients and looking for new parts our deal had completely slipped my mind, I didn't even bring anyone to help carry them.
Male and female parts are relatively the same, they're interchangeable. The only differences between the male and female body are things like fats and body mass, the organs themselves work the same.
How much do I owe you again?
>They both emanate an incredible feat strength, putting the gods to shame with this very man shake. He parts his hands and bows like an ordinary Japanese man.
Gladio. Hell. That's one hell of a handshake, you've put others around here to shame. Shit.... remind me to call you whenever there's a colossal attacking.
No uh, sorry, I heard you loud and clear you're just... well um.... you've just came straight out of Frankenstein or something?
Mister, you ask a question like that and everyone will claim themself as the best.
The only way to solve it is with a game, now why don't you host one and we'l find out the answer to your question.
Jumping to conclusions aren't we? No, but people can over hear.
...Dearie, what do you mean I have already had an augmentation?
Isn't that a folktale? I hadn't heard of it before coming here, but I guess it does describe me pretty decently, so, sure. You can consider me sort of like that, I suppose.
>Fran jots down an address on a small slip of paper and hands it over.
Here. Veronica will probably watch you pretty closely, so try not to be uncomfortable.
Then it's a good thing I remembered for you. I was pulling my hair out every time I came here because I knew that my end of the deal would be obsolete if I didn't get it done soon.
Good. If I learnt that I had to give you something specific, I'd have to spend a few more weeks looking for bodies to give you. Then again, I suppose I can ask China for help...
Did you owe me anything? I can't say I remember that end of the bargain, unfortunately. I think I did it for free because the order was forgotten when I initially received it...?
You've had someone put spider pheromones inside of you, right? It's pretty obvious. I just wasn't sure if the eyes, teeth, skin tone, and that sort of thing came with the internal augmentations overtime or if someone completely overhauled your appearance, too.
I don't work with arachnids often. That's a pretty untouched archive for me so far.
No, no, I can't accept that. The rates for these things are so ridiculously high that it would make me feel too slimey to do a deal for free.
How's 100,000 yen sound?
Then your mother or even grandmother were augmented and passed it down genetically. It's the same thing, really.
Does the name "Professor Madaraki" mean anything to you?
But you must. I forgot the order initially, so I just had to do it for free. It's in a gentleman's nature to do things for others.
...How much is 100,000 yen in British pounds? It might be good, but I'll have to check just in case.
Hey, don't try and guilt trip me in to it, science and magic just don't mingle like that, okay?
Older'n me. Melee's just outdated.
And sure, most of them would probably at least try if they thought they could get away with it. Rika, Rika Asakura.
>Matenshi slowly floats over to Rika, maintaining a few feet of distance.
Oh, come on, it's just a coin flip at best, you know?
