Part 30: 7 Days Left: Sensible/Senseless7 Days Left: Sensible/Senseless
: it really ends. ...... Shikis out. They made her my entry fee. Joshua, too. Took the bullet for me. Rhymes gone. Noise got her. And Beat left to join the Reapers.
: Im the only one of us left--the only hope we have. The mission!
: 104 again? Theyre not very creative... I need a partner--otherwise thisll be a very short Game. Better check Hachiko. Somebody there must have what it takes.
: Naw, I just...dont feel like working.
: I hear that. Hey, how bout a game, then? Games make work fun!
: Im not too keen on games right about now. I mean, can you BELIEVE this week?
: Consider it a loophole. The grey area juuust short of black.
: This is ridiculous! The Game Master is Ms. Konishi. How am I supposed to make a good impression?
: On the Iron Maiden? Heh. Well, youre right about the Game being borked. Three weeks in a row? Thats a first, even for me. You gotta wonder what the Composer has goin.
: I just want my job to be...whats the word... Rewarding! Thats it. I want my job to be rewarding.
: Then put your heart into it. You reap what you sow.
: Very funny. And not all that convincing coming from you. ...But all right.
: Atta girl. Now lets just hope we get to the scene while theres still a Player to harry.
: Anybody!? Huh? Where are all the Players? My phone? Another mail...
: What!? Im the only one? Then I cant make a pact! I cant fight the Noise! ......
: Rrgh... How could I be so stupid? Shades played me.
: Dammit! But... I cant just give up. Think, think... I could try running for the next seven days. Wait, no... If just one mission says to take a Noise out...
: Oh, just perfect. Im gonna have to run!
They enforce this by making all of your pins inoperable. The only way the Reapers could win is by disabling Blue Blood Burns Blue. Clever punks.
Battle Video: Let's Bounce Some More
And I couldn't get Neku's dash started which sucks. This Game is not going to end well.
: Crap... Im surrounded!
: Now, how about a little countdown until the ball drops? 10!
: Its all over.
: 9! Kariya! You owe me ramen for this. 8!
: Yes, maam. Just pay attention. This isnt done yet.
: Buh-bye! Muah.
: Shiki... Joshua... Im sorry.
: What are you doing here?
: Its him!
: You cant have a Game with jus one Player! Maybe the Composers down widdat, but I aint him!
: Who invited you, Freshmeat? ...Youre not thinking of betraying us?
: First you gimme some lame special op and make me snipe my friends, and now you gonna take down a defenseless Player? Aint you Reapers got any honor? Now you got me all kinds a pissed! Yall goin down, yo!
: Yeah. I mean, what kind of IDIOT chooses the Players over the Reapers?
: Ha! Youre the idiots, yo. I aint treadin on thin ice!
: Yo, Phones!
: Let's do it!
Video: Beat's Pact
: Aight, les lay em flat, yo!
Battle Video: Orchefrogs
Orchefrogs are the next step in frogs, and they bring Orchesprog, which not only slow Neku down like Bigbansprog, but slowly drain his health.
: Heh, served! You got nothin on us, yo!
: Snotty little worm! The gloves are off! TAKE THIS!
: We gotta bounce, now! This way!
: You little... You dare run? Come BACK HEEERE!
: Whoooa, Uzuki! Stop, stop.
: Why should I!?
: We gotta report to the brass. You know how this works.
: But, but--
: Youll enjoy punishing them more if you take it slow.
: ...... Yeah...Good point.
: We have an emergency. A Reaper--
: Hoo boy... Now the real party starts.
: Huff...huff... So...for now...huff...were safe?
: Yo, enough wid the huff, man! Thas weak! Dont you start blubberin on me now.
: ...Please. Whos blubbering? So... Why exactly did you make a pact with me?
: Cause you was hung out to dry, man. I wasnt about to leave your sorry ass to die.
: Right... My hero.
: Thas right!
: I owed you. Thas all.
: For what?
: Rhymes pendant.
: Big deal. It was yours, so I returned it.
: Wait... Thats the only reason you helped me? Geez, man! Youre a Reaper! Theyll kill you for partnering with a Player.
: Leas you still alive.
: ...... Hey, your wings are gone!
: Huh? ...... Oh yeah. Guess they are.
: You dont care?
: I was getting sick a how they ran things. The good guys suit me better. But forget me, man. Why you in the Game again? What happened to the prissy kid you was with?
: ...... Well...
Like last week, a ~flashback~ to the end of the previous week, at the incredibly bright room...
: The Game ended!? When? How? Joshua! Wheres Joshua?
: You play the Game well. Let me take a moment to congratulate you--and to thank you for your assistance.
: Assist you? I dont think so.
: Ah, but did you not rid us of Sho Minamimoto, the rebel?
: Rebel? He wasnt on your side? Then that last mission--
: Was issued by me.
: You used us! What did you do to Joshua?
: Joshua is no more.
: Nuked to oblivion, no doubt.
: Then he died...protecting me? Why would he do that?
: He must have had some affection for you as a partner.
: He was a fool, though. No partner merits that kind of sacrifice.
: ...I did this. I blamed him. Hes gone because of me. I accused him of shooting me, but he was innocent! I made him feel like he owed me something. I didnt... I didnt trust him. My partner. I didnt even apologize. Im the worst... I never told Joshua Im sorry.
: I can see youre taking this hard. But you neednt blame yourself. Technically, he never entered the Game. He didnt actually exist in the UG. How could he disappear...
: Thats not funny!
: And, we mustnt overlook his grave transgressions. Meddling with the UG from the outside? Breaking into the Game? The living are not eligible to play.
: With erasure.
: But lucky for you, we repay our debts. The Composer has generously decided to enter you in one final Game with a penalty. You may not refuse.
: Another Game? But what about Shiki? What happens to her!?
: Nothing. The last Game is null and void. Your entry fee will be carried over.
: Thats... Thats the penalty?
: You will not be allowed to play again...again.
: This is my last shot?
: Now, I must collect your entry fee.
: I...I already paid!
: For your last entry, yes. But one entry fee is required for each Game. Composers rules. Im afraid I cant bend them.
So ends the ~flashback~.
: Takin all the Players as an entry fee!
: Doesnt matter. I was forced into this either way.
: Just one: win.
: Aight, then. Come on.
: You comin with me, Phones.
: Cause I got someplace to go.
: Um, I said I have to clear these missio--
: To the station underpass, yo! Book it!
: H-hey, wait! Listen to what Im telling you!!!
If I don't cut it here I'm not sure I can fit all of W3D1 in a single update. How did I get so much content from a D1?
