Part 240: Mission 60 - Epilogue - 2nd Half
Location: Suruga Bay
: (Marins group should be setting off right about now...)
: (Hang in there, bro Im rooting for you.)
: Ah! There you are, Kouzuki!
: Kept you waiting, eh, Kappei? Well, today we settle everything between us!
: Youve got some stones picking a fight with the awesome Kappei Jin of ZEUTH!
: Psh, what are ya talking about? ZEUTHs disbanded and both the Zambot and King Beal are back underwater, right?
: But the SOUL of ZEUTH is still inside me!
: Those two dont know when to stop, do they ?
: Still, this is as important as a real battle in Kappeis eyes.
: Speaking of real battles I wonder where Banjou ran off to?
: From what Toppo said, it looks like they were going to Mars for a bit.
: Hmm, I see Banjous own battle isnt finished yet.
: Indeed his journey will continue until hes put a definitive end to his personal struggle.
: What about you, Sandman? Has your journey reached its end?
: Im not certain. Should the day come where darkness once again threaten to engulf this beautiful world, Ill stand ready to face it.
: Alongside all the beautiful, courageous warriors of Earth.
: (Eiji someday, Ill take off this mask and tell you the whole truth.)
: Ya better win this, Kappei! Show him the power of ZEUTHs soul!
: Hey, Eiji. Why dont we join in on their competition?
: Hey, hey! Touga! This is super serious business between us, Ill have ya know!
: What? This little game of yours?
: Its a game, yes, but its a SERIOUS game! So, keep out!
: Yes, sir. Hang in there, Kappei.
: Just make sure you dont get hurt.
: Lets do this, Kappei!
: Bring it on!
: Good luck to you both!
: And theres lunch ready for when youve wrapped this up. We made some rice balls.
: Ooh, I like the sound of that! OK, new plan: well eat these and THEN we fight!
: Oh, Kappei
: Ah, its all right. If they can work out their differences over some food, all the better.
: Heheh well see. Alright, lets dig in!
: Easy, Kappei! We want some too!
: We aint joining in on the brawl but were gonna have our share of these!
: Indeed, warriors. Savor the fruits of this hard-earned peace to your hearts content.
: (Yeah Ill never forget sharing rice balls with everyone on that day )
Glomar Living Room
: So, in the end, this is what we chose
: Yeah. I guess Ive taken a fancy to this world and all its quirks.
: Thats your way of saying that this world has a much bigger variety of girls to choose from, isnt it?
: You got it! is what I would say but Mimsy and the baby inside her have my full attention now.
: Wow, look at you taking responsibility.
: That goes both ways, mister. You better start calling me father-in-law, Olson.
*People come over.*
: Master Kei! What are you and Master Olson doing here?
: Preparations are underway to open the Market. Please lend a hand, you two.
: Aye, aye. You got it.
: Youd best hurry unless you want to incur Mimsys wrath.
: Roger that! Alright off we go to tackle our new battles!
Location: DEAVA Element School
: Looking at the sky again?
: Staring at the sun, it just feels like Apollo and my brother are going to fly right out of it and back to us
: The Dimensional Repair was a success the worlds been stabilized but
: But Apollo, Sirius and even Commander Fudou havent returned
: Theyve all sacrificed themselves to keep the world together
: Still, that doesnt mean theyre dead. I just know theyre alive, somewhere.
: Will I really need to wait 12000 years in order to see them again ?
: I wonder
: Time and distance are but mere illusions created by hesitating hearts.
: Thats what the commander said, no?
: Illusions created by hesitating hearts
: Yes I understand, Rena. I I wont hesitate any more.
: Ill have faith that Apollo and my brother will surmount those 12000 years and come back home.
: Thats a fine attitude.
: When did you get here?!
: Just now. And I wasnt the only one.
*People come over.*
: Sorry for the delay, my friends Silvia
: Hey, Im hungry as all hell. Lets go grab something to eat, Silvia.
: Aah, you havent changed one bit!
Location: Paradigm City Rogers Mansion
: The phone, Roger.
: Ive a feeling its our first job following our absence. Looks like things will be busy around here.
: Thats good, though.
: Indeed. Whatever changes occur with the world, Ill continue to lead my life the same way.
: Ill keep on performing this much needed job in Paradigm City.
: I can see that but how about you pick up the phone first?
: Hey, Grandpa.
: Have our Mama and Papa come back yet...?
: Are they
: Not coming back?
: Im sure they will. Thats why Holland left you three in my care.
: My familys all left this town before my son, Diane but Im certain that Renton will come back. Moreover, I now have three great-grandchildren to look after
: Alright how about we go and grab a Big Burg?
: A what?
: A huge hamburger thats Rentons favorite food. Eating those is something of a Thurston family tradition for strengthening our familial ties.
*People come over.*
: Got room for two more, grandpa?
: Wed like to go with you.
: You !
: Hey, grandpa. Im finally back... Bellforest, where my dear family is waiting.
: Were home
: (Im back here, Rand this city may as boring as can be but it also means so much to me )
Location: Town of Vicinity Heim Mine
: Are you really sure about this, Loran? I mean, burying the White Doll?
: Ive given it plenty of thought and this seemed like the best option.
: Because of the danger of the Moonlight Butterfly?
: No, no. Its just that its mission is now fulfilled, so it should get some rest.
: Well cover it in stone again and then Vicinity will have its guardian deity back.
: I also think thats the best for the White Doll.
: But, more importantly, are you alright, Sochie? I heard you turned down Gavanes proposal.
: I didnt do that.
: Really? Then you two are getting married?!
: I withheld my answer for the time being. I just didnt want to decide my future one way or another just yet.
: Now thats a relief. I guess this means I still have a shot, eh?
: What, werent you going for Sara?
: I just kinda had to accept defeat on that front.
: She went with Jamil to work as part of the rebuilt New Earth Federation government.
: Yeah, that
: Hey chin up, man. It aint like you to stay down like that.
: You were always such a wordsmith Either way, I suppose I should now give you and Tonya the many years of happiness line.
: Oh, come now, Roybea.
: D-Dumbass! This aint the place to talk about that!
: Jamil and crew have all found a new path to follow, huh?
: Yeah. Hes left the Freeden with us, so now our struggles will just be to make a living.
: What I do know, though, is that Tifa and Ill be together, not matter what happens.
: Be careful in your travels, crew of the Freeden.
: Are you certain about living your life as an Earthling, your majesty?
: Indeed, and Im enjoying it thoroughly, thanks to Lady Kihel accepting to return to the moon as my replacement.
: Im sure it was no problem, Lady Diana. Kihel wanted to go to the moon herself, you know.
: And with Cpt. Harry watching over here, theres nothing to worry about.
: In the meantime, Ill take the opportunity to learn more about Earth.
: Its my intent to use this knowledge to execute the Moon Races homecoming in a peaceful measure.
: Lancerows now the boss of the Revolutionary Army. I'm sure he and Jamil'll help things go smoothly.
: The solutions to most problems are found in the time it takes for someone to drink a cup of coffee. The issue is whether or not said solutions can be put into practice.
: Humanity has now overcome so many trials. I believe that, whatever difficulties arise, well be capable of finding a way to surmount them.
: Ill see you around, Loran. And thanks for all the help.
: Thank you, Garrod. Lets meet again someday.
: You can count on it, what with the multi-dimensional world continuing on. Same goes for our battles.
: Is this good enough, Gainer?
: Yes many thanks to the Iron Gear for bringing us all the way here.
: Ah, it was nothing. We were hired to help with the Exodus in the first place, werent we?
: To think that would turn into a huge, world-wide adventure...
: I certainly didnt expect any of this when we were starting the Exodus.
: Still, this doesnt mean the end to our fighting.
: The planets been stabilized with all those different worlds bunched together. Its very likely new problems will pop up eventually.
: Still, this chaotic world is how we all preferred it.
: Yeah, things wouldve have settled down like this without everyone else thinking that way.
: Well now begin our new lives as part of the Wulgusk people.
: Are you gonna keep working as a teacher, Adette?
: Yeah. Though, really, dealing with kids is more stressful than any battle
: You say that but I reckon being a teacher suits you.
: Thanks. And what about you? Back to working as couriers in Zora?
: We thought about it a lot but, yes, were just going back to our original work.
: So, were going back to being broke
: If thats what gonna happen, I wouldve been better off joining Maria and Birin as Arthurs helper
: Chil please remember us, even after your return to Zora.
: Of course! You and our lynxes be good, alright? And come over to Zora sometime for us to play!
: Absolutely. If my father allows it, Ill head there as soon as possible.
: Alright, guys, lets get going.
: Um, Jiron can I ask you a favor?
: I can tell what it is Gain, right?
: Alright, if I bump into the guy, Ill let him know how mad you were over him leaving without saying anything.
: N-no, thats not it
: Just tell him that I have yet to fully repay him for everything.
: Got it, Gainer. Lets hang out again sometime!
: Of course!
: (Gain Rand, Mel I have faith were going to see each other again someday )
Location: Lunar Surface - Lutetium Base
: Is everything finished, Camille?
: Yes. The Zeta and our other MSs have been brought in as well.
: Now that the Titans have been brought to justice, the AEUG will be incorporated into the Federations command structure.
: Thats to be expected, considering the AEUG/Titan conflict originally started as an internal dispute in the old Federation.
: Still, it feels a bit strange to me were all going to be members of the Federation now
: Honestly Im not 100% sure about joining the military.
: Youll have plenty of time to think this through. Thats an answer only you can find.
: Youre right
: Im sure that, right about now, Shinn and the others are also deciding what they want to do in their future.
: Just as Lt. Quattro did.
: Hm. Hell keep on fighting as Quattro Bajeena, instead of Char Aznable.
: Didnt he want you to take part in the government as well? Is it alright for you to stay here?
: Being a regular pilot is what Im best suited for, so thats what Ill do.
: If there comes a time where Im needed like that, Ill think about it. Just as he did.
: Alright !
: Hm? Wheres Setsuko ?
: Shes in the hangar with them.
Location: Lunar Surface - Lutetium Base, Hangar
: Chief we wont be going back to our world, will we ?
: The Repair went and made the dimensional walls rock solid, so there arent any more warps going on.
: Well, we bought into Asakims story and attacked this worlds Virgola think us being stuck here is karma at work?
: Dont whine. At least were free to do whatever we want, so well just have to make our living in this world.
: Make our living doing what?
: Thats the question, hm ?
*Someone comes over.*
: Youre !
: Your voice youre the pilot of that winged Virgola, arent you?
: Id like to ask would you two be interested in forming a team with me?
: A team ?
: Yes the team that gave me my pride that gave meaning to my life
: Therell be new battles to be fought in this world, so would you lend me your strength?
: Your pride, you say
: Yes Its name is Glory Star.
: This is in the middle of nowhere. You sure this is OK, repairman?
: Yeah. Thanks for the lift, Holland.
: Im still amazed at what a tough son of a gun you are. No sooner we see you getting taken by the Dimensional Repairs warp, we find you without a single scratch.
: Well, we all know that being toughs one of my stronger suits.
: Still, that dont mean everything came out aces.
: Hm, Mels still missing. Youre off to go look for her, yeah?
: Right. The wandering repairmans back on the job.
: Well keep an eye out for her and will let you know if anything comes up. Take care, Rand.
: You, too, Gain. Lets go grab that drink when we meet again.
: My kid oughta be born by then, so youll have to come see it first.
: You got it heh, I can already picture you spoiling that kid. You do your best, man.
: Can you drop me just a bit farther to the east, Holland?
: Sure. Now were just cruising around the world, searching for nice Trapar waves.
: See ya around, Rand.
: Hang in there, THE HEAT.
*Holland and co fly off with the Gekko*
: Alright, Gunleon where should we look for clues first?
: Um are you a Mr. THE HEAT?
: Hey, youre the guy who sold that camera to Mel!
: Sold, he says ! You sent me packing and took the damn thing!
: Ooh right, right. Sorry about that. Here, lemme pay ya.
: Nah, its fine. I reckon that camera helped you a bunch.
: But, hey could I interest you in this other authentic Siberian item I got here?
: Ehh? And does the brand say Civelia now?
: I see you're the same as ever
: Y-you Mel?!
: Eheheh I think the Sphere came off my body during the Dimensional Repair and that made me age these past four years in one go.
: B bu
: But you haven't changed at all! Its only your hair that got longer!
: Still, do you remember your promise, Darling? You said wed get married once my hair grew down to my shoulders.
: (Urgh, out of the frying pan and into the fire ! What am I gonna do ?!)
: Come on, Darling!
: Aah I reckon things will work out, somehow in fact, Ill make em work out.
: Thats how THE HEAT rolls, after all!
Normally, I wouldnt show the credits but theyve cool CGs and, more importantly, one of my favorite JAM Project songs.
Now, a couple of things concerning whats next: we will not be covering the restore to original state ending because, in truth, there isnt a lot of difference. The lines that mention how the multi-dimensional world is still going strong change to something like the worlds went back to their pre-Break the World state but 99% of the scenes remain unchanged (same background, same lines, etc).
Furthermore, we wont be covering the normal ending because its just the perfect stable ending with a handful of bits cut Apollo, Sirius, Renton and Eureka dont return and Aki remains in cryo- sleep. The scenes simply skip the parts where they wouldve shown up, so there isnt anything lost.
What we WILL be covering however are the endings you can get when youve under 6 Ending Points well tackle those alongside summaries for the Zaft route differences.
Once all thats done, its straight into the Special Disk for the side stories and, then, well wrap it all up with SRW Zs epilogue missions.
See you all soon!
