Dakini Vol. 1

Chapter 1
Summer Once Again

4)
1: In the forest, he died. The three pierced his heart and limbs, allowing for no escape.

6)
Dakini (1)

7)
1: Where... was this?

10)
1: Again...
2: This is a dream. I'm dreaming again.
3: Who is he? I know him...
4: I know him...

11)
1: Dakini...
2: Dakini...

SFX: hop
1: Good morning, Aoi.
2: Natsuki...
3: Did you have another nightmare?
4: So you did hear me... Sorry.
5: Of course I did.

16)
1: I'm sick and tired of this!
2: What's wrong with me?!
3: Good morning, aunt and uncle! Sorry for scaring you so early in the morning again...
4: It's OK, Natsuki. Are you OK now?
5: Yeah...
6: I've really been seeing my share of bad dreams.
7: Natsuki... It's only been two years
8: since your parents died in that fire.

17)
1: You think that's what's causing this?
2: I'm not dreaming about them, though.
3: Then what are you dreaming about?
4: It seems like you've been tossing and turning to the same nightmare, over and over,
5: yet you've never told us anything about it.
6: What kind
7: of a dream is it?

18)
1: You probably wouldn't understand even if I did tell you. I don't understand it myself!
2: Fine, fine.
3: More importantly, don't you need to get going?
4: You'll be late.
5: Oh!

21)
1: Hey,
2: big bro...
3: Stop calling me that already. We aren't siblings! Just call me Aoi.
4: Umm...
5: About my dream...

22)
1: Every time I see it,
2: I feel like I've lost something so important.
3: My parents died two years ago,
4: when the house caught fire while I was out...
5: But I feel like this dream is something different.
6: Maybe I've lost something
7: even more important.
8: Big bro...
9: Dakini...

23)
1: Dakini...

25)
1: For some reason I can smell blood.
2: That dream was so vivid...

26)
1: Who is that? Who? What have I forgotten?
2: What could it be?
SFX: BOUNCE...
3: Thank you.

27)
SFX: BOUNCE
1: Hey, you!
2: Yeah!
3: You!!
4: Huh?
5: Umm...
6: This may sound strange, but... You shouldn't walk on that.
7: On that side of the flower bed...

28)
1: Ahh... Sorry. I shouldn't have said that.
2: I know that there'd be no end
3: if I started worrying about stuff like that...

29)

2: Hey!
3: What are you doing? Grab the ball!

33)
1: Shinobu!
2: I'll be right there.

34)
1: Seems like there are more of them around lately.
2: What?
3: Those things in the darkness.
3: Huh?
4: Or, I guess it's the opposite.
5: There's just more darkness
6: for them to lurk in.
7: Don't ask, don't ask.
8: He says weird stuff like that sometimes.

35)
1: For some reason... It feels like the balance has been collapsing...
2: for two years now.
3: It's spreading out...
4: Overwhelming the power of the afternoon sunlight...

36)
1: Big bro...
2: You're
3: still awake?
4: Can't get to sleep?

37)
1: Here.
2: You're the one who's having trouble sleeping.
3: You're too on edge.
4: So what if it's scary? It's just a dream.
5: Don't worry about it.
6: Dreams always disappear eventually.
7: As long as you don't worry about them,
8: they'll cease to be anything at all.

38)
1: Yeah.
2: You might be right.
3: I'll try not to worry about it.
4: Thanks, big bro...
5: Aoi.
SFX: tok tok tok...

39)
1: It'll disappear...
2: Eventually.
SFX: FSSH
3: All of it.
4: Sugaru...
5: It's futile, Sugaru. Natsuki will never notice you no matter what kind of dream you show her.

40)
1: Now stop calling to her, and go back to sleep.
2: Just keep dreaming
3: your own dreams.

41)
1: Mmmm...
2: Nnngh...
3: Oooh...
4: Dakini...
5: Ahh!
6: Dakini...

42)
1: Dakini...
2: Natsuki...
3: Natsuki!
4: Wake up!
5: Natsuki!

43)
1: Who are you?
2: Be quiet.
3: Get out of this house.
4: You can't stay here anymore.
5: You need to come with us. You need to find Sugaru!
6: You're the only one who can find him!
7: Hurry! You need to get out of here!
8: It took so long for me to get an opportunity to come to you like this!
9: No...

44)
1: Stop it!
2: Get out.
3: Right now!

45)
1: It's just as I heard...
2: You really have forgotten everything.
3: We're out of time!
4: I need to make you remember,
5: even if I have to do it by force!
6: You need to remember
7: what you truly are!

46)
1: Huh?
2: Ahh...
3: Ahh... Ahh...

3: I can't see you.
4: Where did you go?
5: My Shiva...
6: Natsuki!!
7: I let my guard down...

57)
1: Was it them? Did they come to you?
2: They've got some nerve!
3: After all the work I did to make you forget...
4: You just need to stay with me... then you'll be safe!

58)
1: Things will never go back to the way they used to be...
2: But Natsuki...
3: I'm never going to hand you over to them!
4: Natsuki...
5: You haven't completely awakened yet. I don't want you seeing that dream anymore.
6: You can control it. They still don't know about the dreams you're seeing.

59)
1: OK?
2: Don't ever dream
3: about him again.
4: Once you wake up, I want you to use your power to find out where that girl lives,
5: and tell me.

60)
1-2: Dakini...

61)
1: I...
2: I know your name.
3: I'm about to remember it.

1: Sugaru...

65)
SFX: THUD
1: What are you doing? Was I annoying you or something?
2: Just go on ahead.
3: Uhh, Shinobu...
4: Just go!
5: Geez...
6: He makes no sense!
7: I can't believe I'm still friends with him...
SFX: fwissh

66)
1: Heeey!
2: What are you doing over there?
3: Are you OK?
4: I'm fine.

67)
1: I just found one of my friends. Dead.

68)
1: Ahh...
2: You don't need to panic.
3: She isn't human.
4: She'll disappear soon.

69)
1: What a killjoy.
SFX: lick
2: It isn't real blood, after all.
3: This girl...
4: Is she the girl from yesterday?
SFX: shoooo...
SFX: shooo
SFX: shooooo...

70)
1: I wouldn't go out of my way
2: to notice them if I were you.
3: I don't really like
4: people like that.
sfx: kee x4
sfx: kee kee...

71)
1: I can hear a faraway voice... In my ears, deep in my heart...
2: I'm here. I'm right here.
3: Ahh... Who is that? Who in the world is it?

72)
SFX: GWEEEEEE
SFX: kee x4

SFX: shooo

SFX: fsssh

74)
1: She disappeared!
2: Hey!!

75)
1: Wait!
2: What's going on here?!
3: I don't know.
4: I don't know what that was,
5: or why it was dead.
SFX: snicker...
6: Who cares,
7: anyway?
8: Be careful.

76)
1: Huh?
SFX: snicker...
2: Not you.
3: I was talking to the ones around you.
4: He can
5: see
SFX: float
6: you...

77)
SFX: drag
1: Wahh...
SFX: kee x2
2: Oh no!
3: I need to exorcise them...
SFX: wham
4: with that spell!
5: How did it go again?

78)
1: Dammit...
2: Kashima!

79)
1: Hey! Good morning!
SFX: pat
2: Don't touch me!

80)
1: Tengenji...
2: What's wrong with you?
3: You're as pale as a sheet.
4: Surprisingly, really. Nothing ever seems to faze you much.
5: Is there something behind that wall?
6: No...
7: There's nothing.
8: Nothing at all.
9: Aoiii!

81)
1: Sorry, but excuse me. I'm being called.
2: Tengenji!
3: Do you know that girl?
4: Yeah.
5: She's my cousin. My family has been taking care of her since she lost her parents in a fire two years ago.

82)
1: Why, does she interest you? If you like her, I'll let you know.
2: That's not what I meant, idiot!
3: Her name's Kamishiro Natsuki.
4: Kamishiro
5: Natsuki...

83)
1: What should we do?
2: Dakini has been summoned inside her...
3: But she still hasn't remembered Sugaru.
4: Perhaps only Dakini's power has been revived.
5: And Tengenji won't leave her side... It'll be harder and harder for us to get close to her now.

84)
1: I guess we have no choice...
2: Let's keep our eyes on her
3: and wait for the right chance.

85)
1: Suicide?!
2: Eww... Really?
3: Tagawa from the next class over?!

86)
1: I heard it happened right after school ended yesterday.
2: Tagawa jumped off the roof...
3: and the janitor found her.

87)
1: But why would she kill herself?
2: Who knows... Apparently they haven't found any clues.
3: Natsuki!
4: Good morning.
5: There's nothing good about it! Did you hear what happened?
6: Well, sort of...

88)
1: I overheard.
SFX: tok
2: You... seem really calm...
3: A single death isn't enough to surprise me.
4: We're all going to die eventually, you know.
5: What?
6: Hey...
7: Are you really
8: Natsuki?

89)
1: Yes, I'm me. Why do you ask?
2: Because...
3: You seem...
4: different.
5: I can't really place it,
6: but there's something different about you.
7: You think so?
8: Umm, you'll have to excuse me. I have something to do in the library.
9: OK...

91)
1: Something different...
2: about me...

92)
1: Have I... really changed?
SIGN: Library
2: I can sort of feel it myself... That I'm different from how I was yesterday.
3: But I don't now why. I couldn't see those creatures yesterday, but...
4: It all feels so natural... and comfortable.

93)
1: I feel like this is the real me.
2: Dakini... Dakini... That's my other name...
3: from before I was born.
4: What am I? Why do I feel like I'm still missing something?
5: What could it be...

94)
1: Dakini...
2: A deva...
3: A female imp that exists in Hindu legends.
4: She has special powers and can foresee people's deaths...
5: Then, when they die...
6: She takes their hearts and eats them.
7: Got it? You'd better keep your mouth shut!

95)
1: As long as you keep quiet,
2: no one will ever find out that we were bullying Tagawa.
3: I don't want everyone thinking that we're the reason she killed herself!
4: She's the one who decided to commit suicide!
5: Right?!
SFX: WHAM
6: Wahh!
7: Alright...

96)
1: I understand!
2: Just let me...
SFX: flip
SFX: skritch x2
SFX: flip

97)
1: Hey.
2: What are you doing here?
2: Class has already started.
3: Yeah.
4: I'll go back to class once I finish copying this. Now stop interrupting me.
5: So you were eavesdropping on us, huh?
6: I said leave me alone.
7: C'mere!
SFX: YANK

98)
SFX: WHAM
SFX: THUD
SFX: FWAP
1: Aahhh...

99)
1: You're the first.
2: You're the second,
3: and you're
4: the last.
5: What are you talking about?
6: I was just letting you know.
7: You're the next ones who'll die.
8: In that order.

100)
1: What?!
2: Hey! What's that supposed to mean?!
3: Tagawa killed herself,
4: but you people
5: seem to want to think that you had nothing to do with it.
6: Seems like Tagawa didn't feel the same way, though.
7: You really did something stupid, I must say.
8: You're going to die in only a few days now, just because of something like that.
SFX: snicker x3

101)
SFX: rattle
1: Hey!
2: What are you doing in here?!
3: Get back to the classroom!
4: Class is in session! Hurry up and get back!

102)
1: Excuse me!

103)
1: Takejo, Umejo...
2: It's me.
3: Uuu... Carrying these on my back has really worn me out.
SFX: OOF
4: Ohhh...
5: Shinobu, is that you?
6: Come inside.
SFX: rattle

104)
SFX: rattle
1: Long time no see.
2: What gives? No need to be polite, come inside.
3: Err...
4: I'm not trying to be polite...
5: Hmph! How many visits will it take for you to feel comfortable here?!
SFX: kyakyakyakya
6: You never come enough, that's the problem!

105)
1: I don't think I'll ever get used to
2: coming here.
3: I brought your favorite... Free range chicken tenders.
SFX: yank
4: Thank you!
5: Shinobu...
6: Stand there for a moment.
7: How could you let such a low-level creature catch you?!
8: For shame!
9: Your previous lives will be crying for you!
10: Please don't say that.
11: I'm living in the now. I don't care if I was Abe no whatever in my past life! It has nothing to do with me!

106)
1: Who put
2: that creature on you?
3: You say it has nothing to do with you...
4: But then why are you here?
5: You
6: ran into a female creature, didn't you?
7: A frightening one, who possesses great power.
8: I...
9: just felt like
10: thinking about this.

107)
1: I didn't want to get involved with them.
2: Ever since I was born, I've been able to see things squirming in the darkness that normal people can't.
3: I acted like they didn't exist... And it's not like I had to interact with them.
4: But then
5: I met her.
6: They were following her. And behind her,
7: I could see darkness.

108)
1: I want to know what she is.
2: Takejo, Ukejo...
3: And I want think... about why those things exist in the darkness.
4: And why I can see them.
5: I...

110)
1: She drowned?!
2: I just found her!
3: She must have slipped on the edge of the pool!
4: Don't be ridiculous! This must be some kind of joke!
5: Go and see for yourself, then!
6: What should we do, Yumi?
7: She's really dead!!

111)
1: She died!
2: Just like that weird girl in the library said!
3: And next... is me?!
4: Cut that out!!
5: It's just a coincidence...
6: You think we're going to die because Tagawa committed suicide?
7: There's no way...
8: Let's go...
9: Kiyomi?

112)
1: Let's go to that girl in the library.
2: Let's ask her. Maybe there's way to save ourselves!
3: Kiyomi!!
4: Get a hold of yourself!
5: You're losing it!!

113)
1: The girl with the long hair who was in the library yesterday morning?
2: Hey... Does anyone know who that is?
3: Maybe Natsuki?
4: Natsuki...
5: Huh?! She was just here a moment ago...

115)
SFX: snicker...
1: This way.
2: Hey...
3: Kiyomi...

116)
1: Tagawa?!
2: Hey...
3: Come with me.
4: To the place where I jumped off...
5: This way...

117)
1: Mr. Mishima! Mr. Mishima!
2: Hey...
3: Wait up!
4: Tengenji? What do you want?

118)
1: I know what's going on.
2: Lately, you've all gotten better at hiding yourselves from me
3: and getting closer to her.
4: You're also the one who's responsible for introducing those three girls
5: to Natsuki.

Ayuko's Free Talk

I love cherry blossoms. So for me, spring is the season when I'm in the best mood. The river near my house is lined with cherry blossom trees, and when they bloom, it's nothing but white and pink flowers dancing in the sky. I love viewing them at night, too. There was a Kadokawa film that came out last year (Tenkawa Densetsu Satsujin Jiken), and the catchphrase was 'cherry blossoms go wild at night.' In a way I know what they mean. Cherry blossoms at night are beautiful, but they're also kind of creepy.

The other day I went to see 'Gansaku - Sakura no Mori no Mankai no Shita' (Beneath a Cherry Blossom Forest in Full Bloom). The scattering cherry blossoms during the climax had an amazing effect. The demonic Yonaga-hime was also cute and scary.

Last year, I went on a trip to Nagano to view the cherry blossoms there, but unfortunately it was still only early spring, and I wasn't able to see any. I was carpooling with some female college students, and while were driving, they said: 'Wooow! Look at all the cherry blossoms! They're so pretty!' But they were actually plum blossoms...

120)
1: There's the second one.
2: Another girl died!
3: What's going on here? Why did two people die in two days?

121)
1: Yeah... But Tagawa killed herself, so I guess people just keep having accidents. I don't care if it's a coincidence! We need to talk to the teachers!
2: You think it's a coincidence?!
3: Really?
SFX: tap x2
4: Natsuki...
5: Done talking? Let's walk home together.
6: Where have you been? Someone just came looking for you.
7: Oh,
8: really?

122)
SFX: shiver...
1: Hey, how about we forget about that and go to the usual place. I'll treat you.
2: Are you kidding? I'm not in the mood for that!
3: Why not?
4: Go by yourself!
5: But she said she'd treat you.
6: Huh?
7: Oops, I forgot my wallet in the classroom. I'll go get it.
8: We'll go on ahead of you!

123)
1: Hey... Does she know that another girl died?
2: Who knows. She should, though!
3: Don't you kinda feel... like she's changed a little?
4: Yeah, since yesterday. I thought the same thing.

124)
SFX: rattle
1: Huh?

125)
1: Aoi...
2: What is he doing in the first-years' wing?
3: Wait.
4: Dakini...
5: It's you, isn't it?

126)
1: Who are you?
2: I'm right here.
3: I'm
4: right here.
5: Seems like you aren't an evil spirit or a monster.
6: What do you want with me?
7: Come
8: here...
9: I'm going to disappear soon.

127)
1: Fine...
2: If that's what you want.
SFX: crackle
3: Wow! A barrier.
4: Who could have done this?
5: ...You can't get in?
6: Sure I can.

128)
SFX: bwap

129)
1: Dakini...
1: Oh...
2: It's just Mr. Mishima.
3: Looks like you're about to die.
4: I saw someone die like that before, you know.
5: I am...
6: of...'s...
7: clan.
8: What?
9: of...'s...
10: clan.

130)
1: What clan? I can't hear you.
2: You can't?
3: It seems that my master's name
4: can't reach you right now.
5: But Dakini...
6: Listen carefully.
7: You've already awakened.
8: Due to
9: the power you possess,
10: you will be involved with many human deaths.
11: That is what it means to be Dakini.

131)
1: Extinguish human souls as you wish
2: Gather their blood and hearts, as you did when you were a deva.
3: As you do this,
4: you will surely remember...
5: The name of my master...
6: And where he is. You must find him...
7: or you will never survive.

132)
1: For a severed head, you sure talk a lot.
2: Hurry up and die already! I don't have the slightest idea what you're...
3: Hahahaha!
4: It's too late now...
SFX: gloop
5: It's too late. No matter how hard Tengenji Aoi tries to get you to forget him...
6: It's too late!

133)
1: What?
2: What
3: did he just say?

134)
SFX: THUD

135)
1: Aoi?

137)
SFX: fssh
1: What?
2: Huh?
3: You keep staring at me.
4: What do you want?
5: Nothing really.
6: Then go to bed already.
7: Yeah... I guess I should. Good night, Aoi.
8: Good night.

138)
1: Yeah...
2: I don't think I should ask him after all. If I told him about seeing Mr. Mishima's severed head, I doubt he'd even believe me.
3: All it did was spout rubbish, anyway.
4: Natsuki...
5: I have a question for you.
6: Was there a group of three girls who were giving you problems?
7: Apparently two of them died over the past two days.
8: I'd steer clear of the last one, if I were you.

139)
SFX: snicker...
1: Guess they aren't much of a group anymore,
2: seeing how there's only one left.
