Part 47: Jin: Story 03
We finally meet again..."Brother". Just as I thought... You WERE "Ragna the Bloodedge".
Jin! Why are you here...?
"Why"? Heh, I thought that was obvious... I came to see you, Ragna.
Go away! I didn't come here for you, asshole.
Why...Why not? You're not happy to see me? Hehehe.
What are you talking about...?
Did you forget? About our past? You know what I'm talking about... Where all three of us used to--
Shut the hell up, Jin. I'll deal with you some other day.
Don't be so cold...Brother.
The house where we lived...
Hey... Brother... I just killed a girl who looked exactly like her...
Huh!? What do you mean...?
But I'm so happy...I get to...I get to "kill" you again!
Let's take a look at some professional Jinmanship.
I talked about this match way back at the beginning of the LP, and it's still pretty much the same. Jin has a lot more options than Ragna does, better reach, and projectiles. Jin can also punish Ragna's pressure with his DP moves, which is something Ragna has to keep aware of. I usually play this match by zoning and keeping Ranga at mid-range if possible.
Now, Jin gets some interesting endings when losing some of his story fights. So we're going to say we lost this one and see what happens.
Ugh. You just had to get in my way... Say your good-byes...for now.
No...I'm the one who's supposed to kill you. Only I...can kill you! No one else can kill you!
I'll decide my own future! You have no right to butt in.
I'll listen to your crap later. I have a lot to ask you myself, but I have something I need to take care of first.
Without thinking, I grab his hand.
A chill runs down my spine.
I know that I can't let him fight...something...
Damn it! Stop getting in my way, Jin! Don't make me beat the shit out of you! Now, get off me!
No... Brother... You can't fight that... You can't! Ragna! Ragna...
The chill pushes its icy fingers out from my spine and through the rest of my body. I feel myself lose consciousness...
Thank you for holding my luggage, Jin.
It's quite all right... I'm used to this kind of thing.
Huh? Wait...you don't mean...
I think you have the wrong idea, Tsubaki... I was talking about all the errands I run for the student council.
Oh... I see. Of course. You know... I want to be on the student council and earn my stripes on day just like you, Jin.
I don't think you need to worry about that... You're intelligent and responsible. I can see you becoming the next student council president.
Oh, Jin! Good morning! Good morning, Tsubaki!
Guys! No running in the hallways! But you already knew that, right? Just be more careful.
Yes... My apologies.
What's wrong, Noel? Are you sick?
N-No... It's not that...
Jin..you too... What's wrong?
I-It's nothing...! I just remembered something...Tsubaki, I'm sorry but I need to give this back to you.
Sure. Thank you for helping me. Are you really sure you're OK, Jin?
I appreciate the concern, but...I'm quite all right. I'll see you later.
Makoto is so fucking pumped for Jin.
Jin is so dreamy... Tsubaki, you're so lucky he actually calls you by your name!
Well, we are related. It's not that strange. We've known each other since we were kids... Makoto, stop shaking your tail like that.
I'm so jealous... I don't think he'll ever take us seriously, eh? Noel?
Hey, Noel, are you listening?
You're not listening at all...
What was that vision? Who was that girl!?
Well, that was interesting. Let's see what happens if we actually win that fight.
Ahahahaha! Fun...! Isn't this so fun!? I've been dreaming of this day...the day I get to kill you again!
Ahahahaha... Good-bye, Brother. I wish it didn't have to end here...
Huh!? This is!?
Watch this video to see how real this shit just got.
Target confirmed... Obstructing directive.
Who the hell...is this...?
...Jin...back off! She's not your enemy!
Who...is this? My...
Something is flowing into me from Yukianesa.
Gah...What is this? AAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHH--
It all comes down to a single point.
Every time I see it, my emotions take over.
And the point, the one that all of my memories lead to.
Here it is...right in front of me.
I see... I get it... So that's how it is...
Subject determined to be hostile... Now beginning termination.
Unlimited Jin is a cool guy. In Unlimited mode all of his special moves freeze the opponent, and some of his D moves gain second and third attacks. His specials also hit harder, firing twice instead of just once.
And you know what, we're going to lose this match too.
...Why? Why won't you die!?
No matter how many times I stab her, or how many times I freeze her...
The girl keeps getting up...
...Impossible. YOu cannot kill me...
...What did you say!?
A bolt of light erupts from her body and slams into me.
GAAAAAAAAH! Damn it, my feet! You bitch!
Am I going to die here...?
The girl walks toward me...and keeps going...
Ragna... Finally the hindrance is gone. We're together, at last!
She reaches for my brother...
Stop it... I...
Finally...we can be one...
Stop it! Brother, BROTHER--!
I scream and scream, but still my body refuses to move.
I can only watch as that girl leaps into the Cauldron, brother in her arms.
They melt together, my brother and that girl.
They turn into something else...
Brother...I'm just not good with other people...
All I can hear is static. It forces its way in through my ears and drills into my brain.
Everything is cold. Everything, at least, except for my right hand.
I'm tired...in so many ways...
Hm... What's this...?
Uh...um...excuse me. That's mine. Sorry for the trouble.
A girl chases after a piece of paper fluttering in the wind...
Hmph... How rare for someone to actually come here...don't worry. I caught your paper.
S-Sorry. Thank you. I was writing something, but the wind suddenly blew it away...
Hahaha...It can get really windy around here, so you should be caref--
Huh!? ...You're Tsubaki's friend--Miss Noel Vermillion, was it?
...Huh? Y-Yes, that's right... Ah! Cadet Kisaragi...! M-My apologies.
I've heard a lot about you from Tsubaki. During your entrance exam, you had amazing synchronization rates with the Armagus, right? The highest record ever, I was told.
Uh...um...yes...but, I wasn't able to use it well...I'm not that great academically or physically... Not like you.
You never know what can happen...you should have more confidence in yourself.
I-I'll do my best... Thank you.
Well, if you'll excuse me... Oh, and your paper...
I'm sorry. Thank you again.
It's nothing... I'll see you around.
Who is that girl? Is that...? No...it can't be. She...she looks identical. What was that hallucination? Brother...
Damn it...what is all this...?
Well that's certainly a thing. I think one more update ought to do it.
