I cant believe you actually went home to change into that stupid outfit.
Its for your sake, man! Come here, take a look at what I brought you!
What the hell!? An anime hug pillow!?
Yes! You are a sad and lonely man that was raised by a terrible family, so y-
Go die with your pillow! I dont need not stinking nerd shit!
Ow! Come on, anime will fill your life with happiness!
NO IT WONT!
Thats what everyone said! Here, I will show you With my 2D waifu!
Accept the embrace of my waifu... With my permission! Feel her warm and softness that your family denied you!
HOW!? HOW CAN A PILLOW HIT WITH SO MUCH FORCE!?
STOP SPINNING ME!
PILLOW-CHAN LOVE LOVE SPIN!
NOOOO! OUR FINAL BATTLE CANT BE THIS STUPID!
Oh, thats a good name for a light novel!
SHUT UP! SHUUUT THE HELL UP!
NO MORE ANIME! FIGHT ME LIKE A MAN!
But you like anime!
NO I DON-
ANIME IS LIFE!
ANIME IS LOVE!
ANIME IS KAWAII!
The opponent is just a human! Hahaha, so embarrassing!
Hahahaha! Laugh at me; laugh until your belly hurts! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
All hail anime, Uguu~
It is a victory for the Japanese animation.
He died a happy man. R.I.P.
Now to catch up with my 3D waifu.
What was I thinking!? My mother-in-law is in there! I cant go in like this!
This should do. Dress up with similar fashion as the queen should be well received.
I hope she likes golf.
O-oh god. We are wearing the exact same outfit!
However, NIRO is an opponent that must be defeated. Our main objective now should be to focus on them.
Maybe so But! If this keeps on, the street will become less than what it is!
This will be too awkward! I need to change into something else!
Be assured, we have no plan to alter the beauty of this street.
Much better. A classy gentleman fashion shall win her favor in no time!
A street isnt just a bunch of roads and buildings or location on a map. It becomes a street when people who gathers and live in it This is what I learned from the time I spent here. It wont be the same Akiba without the same people inhabiting it. Even if there is another place with similar building structure, but the atmosphere will be different with different people. To be able to say the things I like As if a feeling that will never fade away, to live with excitement And, to love this place with all my heart. Everyone risking their lives to gathers here to protects it from danger Because of them, this place is-!
O-oh no I just realized
The sun is barely up and there arent a lot of people. You and the people you gathered are the only one thats involved in this affair.
I am wearing Sejimas attire! The clothing her mortal enemy!
Its not like that. Its not like that, mother!
I am an adorable and tough bear! PLEASE LIKE ME!
If this battle goes on, this place will be changed. This Akibahara is a street formed by miracle. The balance could be destroyed by it Even so, this street still managed to keep itself together till now-
It is the result of all the efforts from people who love and respect it!
I am running out of time! What am I suppose to wear for this occasion!? I am having a WARDROBE MALFUNCTION! !
However, they wont be able to hold on to it anymore if something bigger were to occur.
Please, mother. Dont let this place become a battlefield Dont let harm come to this place for our own benefits
I understand. You are saying that since you like the people here, its fine for us to die?
NIRO is focusing their fire power on us. Aside from their vampirization, they also obtained stripping techniques that could effectively wipe us out. Its just a matter of time before they become more proficient at these techniques and completely eliminate all of us Which is why theres no time to hesitate. As they are increasing their battle strength, so will we. In other world, this is our last best chance to fight back. Dont you think that we would be doomed if we retreat now?
That, that isnt
GASMASK IS COOL! DEAD BROTHER-IN-LAW CLOTH IS BADASS! WHAT AM I DOING!?
No. I cant do that.
Its fine. We can maintain this street that you love so much I have a good idea.
To do it, we must eliminate NIRO. Its a plan that can only be realized with their complete annihilation.
what is it?
All we need to do is to vampirize everyone local citizen and its tourist.
what is it?
Its understandable that you dont know since theres barely anyone who had taken our blood. It can vampirize the body physically But it can also gradually change the persons thinking person and instinct to become similar to ours.
Wh-what are you saying?
I gave up. This is my final form.
What do you mean, queen?
The vampirization of the brain What is the behavioral different between us and human?
The answer is simple. Our way of forming a group is different. In other word, you have special feeling for Rui, right?
Thats because she have the capacity to become the queen.
W-what do you mean!
Are you saying Kanta became my partner because of vampirization!?
Something like that !
You cant deny it as nonsense. Think about it. We are monster in the eyes of human. Its logical that they are afraid of dying from having their blood drained.
Rui. You really think human will treat you like their own kind?
They dont know of your true self. Thats why they dont have animosity and fear toward you. On the other hand, if they are all vampirized, they would surely like you as their own kind.
Kanta.. Its not like that, right? We can coexist even if I am different, right ? Kanta?
Are you alright, Rui!?
Hm. I am fine, Kanta.
That means my brother is
Yuu is dead. What a shame. That kid is just the vampire portrayed in the literature. He wasnt very bright, but he is so adorable. You sure have done something terrible, Kanta.
But, I wont mind. No one would be sadden for Yuu Because we are different from human. So, dont feel bad about it. You are our own after all Temporarily. I can tell from the way you interacted with Rui.
What are you trying to say?
His vampirization is extremely strong, surely his brain have been greatly altered
So that He can protect you, Rui. Kanta have special feeling for you. Good will, respect, and the urges to protect you.
He only follows you out of instinct because he can sense your quality as a queen.
Wrong! Kanta didnt become my friend for such reason!
Rui Do you really think that human will falls in love with monster and treat us well?
Kanta.. Its not like that, right?
Please let me have your daughter.
H-hey.. EH!? What are you saying all of a sudden, Kanta!?
Fufu. Silly child. Rui wont become yours, but you will become hers.
1) What do you mean.
2) Works for me.
Works for me.
Why would you say something like that? Because you have feelings for her? Because you love her?
Thats what Ruis blood inside you are make you think.
Your brain become similiar to ours through the vampirization process. You instinctively recognized Rui as the queen, which makes you obey her Along with some good will of your own.
Rui, could it be You really think human will have feelings for monster?
Kanta.. Its not like that, right?
1) This has nothing to do with race. I love you.
2) Its love at first sight. Ever since I was a human.
3) Whatever, lets unite our body.
Note: 1 & 2 have the same reply.
This has nothing to do with race. I love you.
In other word, its because you like me A lot.
Language is such a convenient thing. It can express it as pretty as you want.
Dont you see, Rui? We can do whatever we want by forcing our blood into others.
That would be pointless!
I love this street. But that doesnt mean I want to turn it into my plaything! I just want to live together with everyone Happily. In fact, we dont have the power to dominate minds Right, Kanta?
I want to believe that as well, but human arent decent creatures that you thought. They are despicable monkey with low level of social structure. You will understand it someday. Thats why, before you become hurt-
You always say this. You never cease bad-mouthing human for as long as I lived with you, mother. Uncle said you werent like this until I was born.
Whatever, lets unite our body.
What Do you mean?
1) To make babies
2) TO UNITE
3) You understand, right?
To make babies
Eh, ah, ehh ?
In another word That You like me a lot?
Very, special kind of like?
1) You can say that I love you
You can say that I love you
Kanta . Yes. Hm. Its a bit Sudden, but I am surprisingly Happy?
Its the working of the blood.
I want to, live with Kanta together too. This is what you mean by unite, right?
If you mean the forming of a collective group, then isnt it the same as the instinct of the vampire?
You understand, right?
Its too deep for me. Please elaborate.
1) I want to *Beep*
2) I want to *Beeeep*
3) I want to *Beeeeeeeeeep*
I want to *Beeeeeeeeeep*
I appreciate your thoughts and it makes me happy to hear that But I would be happier if you use a better terminology Probably.
Its a byproduct feeling from the urges to revere the queen.
Is this how you greet in your family, Rui? I think I saw it in an OVA once.
Please get behind us, mom!
We will take care of this.
Thats right, Rui and that human better stand down now!
No, Mana. You two stand down.
Why? We are here to protect mom
Rui must be here to kill mom, right!?
Its not like that! I just want to persuade mother! I wont do something like that!
Really? Not enough a single thought of it?
Even so, it is fine. That is the proper way to think like a vampire.
I didnt expect your family to be this messed up, Rui. But I have seen worst in manga.
Its difficult for human to go that far. To kill her own mother who raised her.
No, I am really here to persuade mother !
What is that shaking!?
*Building Shakes- BOOOOOOOOOM*
Is this what its like to become a member of this family, Rui? Do we have insurance?
NIRO really done it this time. They would blow up the windows.
We dont have much time since they are here. Go on ahead, Sena, Mana, they are invading.
Yuu is dead. We will all be defeated if you dont return to your post. You cant protect me if we are surrounded. Understand?
Yuu was How could
Please dont look over here, please dont look over here
Understood. Lets go, Mana.
Are you disobeying mothers order?
B-but ! Yuus death must be caused by them!
Yes, how dare those NIRO kill my future-brother-in-law!
Dont say emotional things like a human would.
Mother, please call for us if you are in danger. We will be here in no time.
Understood. Sena. *Retreat*
You two are next, after we defeated NIRO! *Retreat*
My father is human, right?
Yes. Only Yuu was born from a vampire underling while you both are born from a human parent.
Is this the reason you have a low opinion with human? Normally, the queen will find a new partner after mating But why do I still have some vague memories of my father?
RUI, YOU ARENT GOING TO MATE WITH SEVERAL MEN AFTER ME, RIGHT!?
Thats just a dream of yours.
Liar. That memory cant be a dream. The kind and tall person who raised me with care. He holds me gently in his embrace It cant be a dream
Enough, Rui. Speak of your father no more.
Enough I dont want to remember the past.
PLEASE DONT BECOME LIKE YOUR MOTHER, RUI!
It seem we wont be able to continue our conversation. Moreover, we dont have the time to chitchat I had enough. I really wanted you to come back, but it doesnt seem that I can sway you.
To think we have to partway in such fashion
Kanta, although you are following your instinct, but its impossible to save you with that level of fanaticism. Its time you bear the responsibility.
Rui Defeat me, and you can do whatever you want as the new leader. Come at me if you think you can do it. After that, you can call back everyone to end the fight, but do understand that it is impossible to achievement your dream of coexistence if we dont destroy NIRO now. They will chase you to the abyss of hell and you will live a life of escapee. It would be better to sacrifice this place now, but thats your choice later Do you understand, Rui?
Make up you mind soon... I am coming.
I know this is a final battle, but its a bit silly to watch them two fights with umbrellas. I mean, look at me, I brought my hero sword replica.
Am I supposed to help? This is a leadership succession battle, right? Will I become the next leader if I defeat the queen?
Only one way to find out. ROYALTY BACKSTAB!
Shes tough, and good at dodging blows.
But I trapped her in a cubicle and unleashed all my sword techniques on her.
Its awkward to strip your mother-in-law.
Guh, phew... It would be bad if this is outdoor.
We won. Can we call back all the vampires now?
More importantly, listen to me. This world doesnt have a place for us. You will understand this someday, Rui. Even though we are accepted by a bunch of weirdo, we are hated and reviled by the world as a whole. The fact that we are monster will never ever change. Indeed Its a plan to teach you that.
You mean the Reclusivelization plan?
Did I chosen the wrong place ? Or maybe its because you are born from a human that I loved ?
I see, it sounds interesting But pardon my intrusion.
How fortunate to be able to catch both queen at the same time.
Queen. Sometime I wonder, could Ruis father be Kitada?
There are also some who wanted me to change to their family name too.
Too bad. I could take away his wealth with her daughter as hostage. I suppose its too childish to think it would be that easy.
Saving that old man with your blood would be wasteful too . So let me confiscate it, dear queen!
Hm!? So you have become
*Cough, cough* Now what is flowing in my whole body is
