Watch the Explosion
Anyway, it started with Muppy.
I can learn it, but fixing my ship will take quite some time No, wait.
I dont have to do it myself. I can have these people fix it for me.
Yes, conquer this school. Thats it But first, I must learn the geography.
Heheheh Ive got it. This school is already within my grasp
He asked for a tour of campus.
Yes. I want to learn everything.
I dont mind but Whyd you ask me?
(You look easiest to manipulate )
Ooh ooh! If youre gonna play with Muppy, I wanna come, too!
Im going, also!
You too, Nikki?
Someone needs to watch your back in case he does anything wrong.
Hey! I heard that!
Cmon Nikki, lets go!
You too, Muppy. We cant start without you.
That thing Im so gonna find out what you are!
We started out by showing him the Athanor.
Its an Athanor. An alchemy forge.
A great amount of energy
It automatically regains fuel and continues to work forever or something
Its a complicated mechanism.
Hm very well! Muppy Scan, begin!
Hes started doing something, again
Dont bother him. He seems so serious right now.
How does his face ever look anything close to serious.
(Thats a lot of fuel I can destroy 18% of this planet )
(Splendid. When the day comes for my success Heh heh heh )
Oh my god! Did you just see that really evil look in his eyes!?
Im so glad hes enjoying this. Its worth showing him around.
Hes not enjoying anything!
But as always, its so hot in here Huh? Muppy?
Is it just me, or did your body shrink a little?
G-gah, no! The heat is melting my Noooohhhh!!
Well, at least it looks like he wont be using this place to do any evil.
Then we showed him the Campus Grounds.
Yeah. We can go to
Whats that statue!?
He was referring to a statue of Uroborus in the center.
Oh, that? Its an Uroborus.
Uroborus You say ?
Its supposed to look like a snake thats eating its own tail.
Its a symbol of alchemy that depicts the beginning and end, space and matter.
Well, you can call it a form of god, I guess.
God, huh Right, it couldnt have been.
Did something bother you?
No Its just, the back of this statue looked so similar to my fathers
He didnt finish his story, I kind of wonder what he was going to say. Anyway, we went to the Music Room next.
Music? What does that have to do with alchemy?
Um Im not sure, either.
You see, instruments that play beautiful sounds are made by good alchemists.
So any professional musician is also a professional alchemist.
Do you play any musical instruments?
I dont do instruments.
I bet you cant even beat on the drums right.
When my band broke up, I tossed my guitar. Ill never play again
Wha Guitar? Band?
It was a painful past. Staying here makes me remember it. Lets go
Thats the first time Ive seen Muppy so sad
Maybe it was his past we shouldnt have touched
Theres no way he did any of those things.
At that point we headed down to the Cafeteria.
Yes, thank you.
Yay for you, Muppy.
Hmph, I guess you were pretty calm today.
(Unaware of danger, this place shall be easy to rule. The one problem )
(This catgirl who suspects me I will have to rid of her some time soon )
Ehh, a chill just went down my back
(Heh heh heh, enjoy your blooming world while you still can.)
(But, alchemy, hmm It may not be a bad idea for me to learn some more )
Hey, um, Muppy.
And thats when things took an unexpected turn.
Ah! No! The pompon on my head!
Wow, its amazing! Its so soft!
Ooh! Let me, let me.
Oh, youre right. Its so squishy
Stop it! Stop it!
Haha, this is so much fun!
No, no more Ahhh!
???: Detected danger to life. 20 seconds until defense mechanism activates.
Oh no! No one can stop it now!
I-isnt this kinda bad?
Lets run! Hurry!
Yeah, and thats when Muppy blew up the Cafeteria.
Needless to say, we ran away, because we dont need to get blamed for destroying a major school building.
What an amazing finale Ill never forget you.
Unh *sob * Muppy
Dont be sad. You must overcome his sacrifice and move on Now, lets go!
Unfortunately we didnt manage to get away with it, though at least Muppy turned out to be okay.
I heard a loud noise and wondered what it could be. But alas, it was you
N-no! We didnt do anything
This student belongs to your workshop, no?
Hes alright. Im glad
It flew in through my office window. Every time
But no, he just exploded on his own!
What kind of person explodes on his own!
Hes right there! I mean, its doubtful if hes even human in the first place!
Anyway, you will clean the cafeteria as punishment! Do not leave until done!
*sigh * Oh well
The pompon It was so soft
Dont touch it anymore!
So yeah, thats how we almost got exploded again. I dont know what the deal with Muppys pompon is, but were not going to touch it again

Watch the Training
Anna and I did our practice in the Mana Ruins today. We had a bit of a problem.
Are you alright, Anna?
Yes Can you move over just a little ?
Hold on, its tight in here Oh, I think I can turn the light on.
Phew It seems like were both okay.
Yes, barely. But
Hmm How should we get out?
See, Anna got a bit enthusiastic.
I dont mind But do you really know your way around in here?
No. The key here is to step into an unknown area.
Lets not go in, then. It could be dangerous.
You can only become stronger by overcoming danger. Now, come.
Once she starts, she wont listen. Huh? Anna?
Anna!? Where the ? Anna Whawhaaaaa !
And we fell into a big hole.
No, its alright. I didnt see it, either What should we do?
No one would come by at this time. Well have to patiently wait for help
Yeah. Dont worry, someone at the workshop will notice eventually.
*sigh * How miserable. Because of my negligence, Ive endangered Vayne
If no one comes to rescue us, Ill be alone with him forever
*gasp * A-alone!? Alone with a man In a place with nowhere to run
No, Vayne would never. If he had the guts, by now, he wouldve already
But, he is a young man, after all. What if ?
Oh no. What if he cant stand the darkness, and turns his fangs on me.
What if he does this and that, and even..!
No, what are you thinking? To an innocent girl who hasnt been wed yet !!
Im not sure why, but Anna got really insistent that we needed to get out of the pit right then.
Wh-what are you doing ?
Lets get out of here! Right this minute! Out!
But, you said we should wait for help
The situation has changed! Now, hurry!
Well find some clues. Come on, dont sit still!
We found a cracked wall that seemed pretty hollow.
What is it?
This wall sounds different when I knock on it. Maybe its thinner.
Which means, if we break this wall Please stand back.
N-no stop! If you swing your sword in such a tight place
Well deal with it later.
No! Ill do it!
I think, if I just hit it a few times Just stay back a little bit.
It opened Good, it looks like it leads to another path.
Great Does it look like we can get out?
Im not sure what its like ahead What do you want to do?
Of course were going! If we stay here. Ill never be able to get married.
M-married? I dont get it but, be careful.
We fought our way through the monsters in our way, but ended up at another dead end.
Wait. Up there I can see the sky.
Oh, youre right. If we yell, do you think people will be able to hear?
Im not sure Unless theres people nearby, I think thats kinda hard.
Then Ill climb it. Vayne, please help me.
But, its dangerous. It is pretty high
that wont work, this wont work. Then what do you think will!?
Hmm, lets see Sulpher, do you think you can climb that?
Sure. No problem.
Alright. Then can you go get us some help?
Alright. Just wait patiently.
Sulpher climbed up and reached the hole, leaving us to wait.
Nothing Just thinking about how handy you are.
Handy ? Is that a compliment or what ?
Of course it is. If it were me alone, I couldnt have gotten out of here
Dont be so depressed No one can do everything by themselves.
Well, that may be true, but
When in doubt, just have someone help you. I might not be as reliable, but
Thats not true! Youre very handy!
I dont understand why you emphasize that so much
Luckily for us, Sulpher managed to get Flay and Jess back to the hole.
Its them! Great! We can get out of here.
Arent you happy?
Thats not it Vayne, I truly thank you.
Huh? Oh, you dont have to thank me
Of course I do! I will make sure to repay this debt to you!
Um, I mean
I will repay it!
Well, if you insist.
Oh, there you are. Hahaa! Look at you two.
Are you alright?
Flay! Jess! Dont just laugh, help us!
Just wait a minute. Ill send down the Flay Rope.
Geesh Come on, lets go Anna.
Well, at least it was good training
