Hiuri - Chapter 7
Hiuri / Kogenta Arc
1: [A long, long time ago...
2: [A mystical creature known as Hiuri came down from the heavens.
3: [Was it a servant of Buddha, or a god itself?
4: [Sometimes, it would use its powers to bring abundance, and other times, it would cause storms and drought. All aspects of nature were at its disposal, and the people feared and revered it.
1: [It also, on occasion, would choose certain humans
2: [and give them some of its powers.
3: [They used the powers of the heavens, the sky, and the earth to stand above others.
4: [They were the chosen children of Huiri.
5: [Countless people have spent months and years searching for Hiuri in order to receive such powers,
6: [But no one has ever been able to catch it, and no one has ever gained such powers by force.
7: [And so...
1: We're rioting!
3: We can't take it any longer!
4: Give me back my child!
5: Give me back my mother!
6-8: We'll kill you!
9: Hey, look at that!
10: Is that Hiuri?!
12: It's Hiuri!
13: It's coming to save us!
14: Hiuri! Give us strength!!
2: Please, stop!
3: I thought you were a servant of the Buddha!
4: Why are you hurting us?!
5: If you're a devil, then take me as your sacrifice!
6: Use me to satiate yourself!
1: /Hiuri! What are you? A god,
2: /or a devil...?
1: What is it?
2: A letter! From the leader!
3: I wanted a detailed report on how the Hiuri search is going!
4: Then he starts complaining about us not bringing him any results.
5: Gimme that!
6: He said he's going to cut our allowance unless we do better?! That old scrooge!
7: He knows what he's doing.
8: This isn't funny! It's true that there haven't been any new developments,
9: but we're doing our best!
10: We've been conquering our rivals,
11: and we desperately fight back all enemies who dare to stand in our way!
12: We've been engaging in nothing but furious duels to the death!
1: We've fought with frenetic foes...
2: I think you mean ferocious...
3: Shut up!!
4: I was just trying to help you!
5: Anyway, he isn't here, so he has no idea what's actually going on!
6: Good point! Alright, I'll say that when I reply to him.
7: This is a tale of brutal, cutthroat deathmatches! There is always shadow wherever there is light! Despite all those battles, however, we've gained absolutely no information on Hiuri! I'll put in your sad love story here as a commercial, Gen.
8: Gen, where are you going?
9: Out for a walk.
10: We really need to do something, though. Maybe you should write the reply, Hime.
11: P.S. Stop watching movies and work on the manuscript for once.
1: /Tch! I don't believe it...
2: /We're risking our lives out here, and all he does is complain to us!
3: Just you watch!
4: I'm going to catch Hiuri and...
6: /Something's going on in the forest...
1: /The animals are getting excited too.
2: /What happened?!
5: Owww... I'm such a klutz!
6: I did it again!
7: /What is that...?
1: /Is something there?
3: What the...
5: /This is...!
1: /Hey, this is...
2: /Could it be...?!
3: Don't tell me this is Hiuri...?
4: Looks just like it, doesn't it?
5: It's Hiuri's child!!
6: Hold on... can Hiuri even reproduce?
7: I thought there was only one?
8: Who knows? But who cares about that now?
9: The important thing is, as long as we have this guy...
1: We can probably use it to summon Hiuri!
2: We've found the perfect tool!
3: I see... now this actually sounds like a plan...
4: Alright! We'll use this to catch Hiuri, then!
6: I can't believe you actually found this!
7: His wings are broken and he can't fly, it looks like.
8: We need to nurse him, then. He's our precious hostage now!
1: Well look at him! He's just a little runt, yet he thinks he can scare us!
2: No... he's scared.
3: Now, now...
4: It's alright. Come here.
5: I'm going to fix you...
8: Settle down!
9: Oww! You little jerk!
SFX: WHAM BAM
10: Haa, haa... geez.
11: That took a while...
12: Now I have even more little scrapes to deal with.
13: /He's kinda soft... and warm.
14: /He's alive... he isn't a god.
15: /He's an animal!
2: How are we going to catch Hiuri, anyway?
3: If he gets angry, we're done for. We need to keep him calm.
4: Gen, how are the little one's wounds?
5: Not too bad. He'll get better soon!
6: We're going to have to tie him up so that he can't run away.
7: Y... yeah.
8: He's crying! Maybe he's calling for his friends.
9: That's so sad!
1: How about this?
2: Maybe some of this?
3: Geez... what have you been living on up until now? I dunno what to do...
4: He doesn't look like he's starved, though.
5: But he won't drink any water either!
6: Maybe he lives off sucking up human energy! You might turn into a mummy soon!
7: Shut up!!
8: Can't he take a joke?
9: Any sign of any powers like Hiuri?
10: Nothing. Can we really catch Hiuri with this net?
11: This is a special net.
12: Normally, we wouldn't be able to,
13: but we're going to use a little trick. That is, as long as Hazuki uses the right ingredients this time...
1: You really think it'll come?
3: The parent Hiuri!
4: It's been a week already!
5: Maybe it just doesn't know where its child is?
6: The baby's been calling for it every night. How could Hiuri not notice?
7: I bet there really is just one Hiuri. It must die and resurrect itself like the phoenix or something.
8: That's why it's so small now! Yeah!
9: No way!
10: That is a possibility, though.
11: Perhaps we should just take the baby back to Heiga...
13: What is that?
14: It's really been getting along well with Gen lately. When he's gone, it gets lonely and calls for him.
1: And Gen is always so nice to it... (takin' care of it and stuff...
2: Maybe we should put a lid on this, Hime.
3: You know, before he gets too attached to it... it is Gen we're talking about, after all.
4: If we're going to do it, now 's our chance.
5: Down boy, down!
6: Aha! I know, I know! I won't leave you alone again!
7: Are you lonely?
8: You want your mommy, don't you...
9: I'm really a coward, aren't I...
1: Hey, what's your mommy like?
2: I bet she's really nice to you.
3: Wanna hear about my mom?
5: don't have one.
6: They say they found me crying on the battlefield.
7: Then the leader started taking care of me.
8: My mom was probably a farmer... who was killed by a samurai.
9: Same with my dad...
10: Don't worry! I promise I'll take you back...
11: to your mommy! OK?
1: /A scout's returned.
2: /Apparently, the Heiga ninjas have found a baby Hiuri.
3: I see...
4: Steal it at once... do anything you need to.
5: /Yes, sire.
6: I've given this a lot of thought, and... I think we need to do something.
7: We need to be more active with our plan here.
8: Active, huh...
9: For example...
10: We hang him off that cliff and make him shout for help.
2: Don't be so loud. We have to go that far, or we won't get any results!
4: What? What's the problem?
5: N-nothing... it's just...
6: But he gets lonely so easy, and he's a scaredy-cat...
7: If we leave him all alone there...
8: That's the whole point! Then Hiuri will come for sure!
10: Alright, it's decided! We need to hurry and put it into action at once!
1: Hey, wait! Hold on a minute!
2: What is your problem?!
3: You brought him to us so that we could use him as bait, right?!
4: Well, yeah, but...
5: Then just shut up and watch!
6: N... no!
2: What are you doing?
3: Come on...
4: This is cowardly!
5: There's no honor in this plan!
6: Are you kidding me...
7: Honor and cowardice don't exist among ninja!
8: Doing anything you can to achieve your goal is what it means to be a ninja.
9: Have you forgotten, Gen?! We came here to catch Hiuri!
1: I agree with Hime.
2: If we're going to get attached to every little piece of bait we find, then we'll never get anywhere.
4: Got it, Gen?
5: If you do... then hand him over.
8: Stop being unreasonable.
9: Hand him over!
1: I see...
2: Fine then.
4: ...if you can beat me, then you may do as you please.
1: H... Hime! You're kidding, right?!
2: Stooop, Hime!!
1: Everyone, be careful! It's the Shinma!
2: Tch! They never learn, do they?!
1: They must be after the baby Hiuri!
2: Gen, take it and run! Right now!
2: Stop wasting time, you idiot!
1: Thanks, Shijima!
1: A... are you alright?!
2: Are you hurt...?
2: Okay! Here!
3: Take him!
2: Let's get outta here!
1: ...let's go.
4: You said no, didn't you? I know that you don't change your mind once you've decided on something.
5: You've always been like that...
7: Forget about it.
8: I knew things would end up like this anyway...
10: You get wound up so easily!
2: It seems that the Heiga children have succeeded in taming the baby Hiuri.
3: The Shinma tried to steal it and failed... what should we do?
4: Lord Kiriga...
6: We'll take it. At all costs.
7: The Kiriba clan will be the ones to claim it!
