Profile

Appearance

Katsuragi Concepts (Headshots)

Katsuragi has long, soft blonde hair worn with a blue headband that has a ribbon on each side of the head. Her bright eyes match, and she is usually depicted with perverted expressions.

Her turnover outfit is simplistic; composed of her usual white Hanzō school uniform, unbuttoned, revealing most of her torso underneath; particularly her breasts. Along with a blue plaid skirt, she wears long socks and her signature black and gold metal boots adorned with small blue tassels on either side, serving as her combat weapon of choice.

Personality

Katsuragi was defined by losing her parents; she vowed to become a stronger shinobi and gained an extremely vivacious personality and often hides her sorrow behind her mask of perversion. She takes almost every possible opportunity to grope her fellow shinobi with intense glee. She enjoys the thrill of battle and competition, leading her to often face-off against the stoic Hikage, whom she wishes would enjoy a fight with her.

Story

Spark!

Chapter 1
It's the first day of Ninja studies at Hanzō Academy. Both Katsuragi and Ikaruga introduced themselves to their new teacher, Kiriya while he did the same back to them. Kiriya then ordered the two to prepare themselves for training in a bit. As they prepared, Katsuragi attempted to properly introduce herself to Ikaruga. However, Ikaruga responded with a cold shoulder. A little annoyed, Katsuragi put up with it with a smile.

On the school rooftop, Kiriya explained to them how as soon as they entered Hanzō Academy, they became a shinobi. They must get rid of their school mentality. Both Katsuragi and Ikaruga understood and Kiriya told them to show him what they can do by sparring with one another. Quickly, Katsuragi went towards Ikaruga with an attack, but Ikaruga countered by taking Katsuragi's arm and launching her up in the air. Kiriya has seen enough and stopped the spar.

Inside the bathroom, Katsuragi relaxed in the bathtub while feeling frustrated. Annoyed about her defeat by Ikaruga, she decided to just shrug it off and forget about it. Right as she got up and started to head out of the bathroom, she noticed Ikaruga coming in. With all of her strength, Katsuragi held in her anger and let out a small smile. Ikaruga simply walked past Katsuragi and started to clean herself nice and slow while Katsuragi continued to leave the bathroom, disgusted with Ikaruga's attitude.

Days went by and the training slowly became more and more challenging while Katsuragi only became more and more frustrated with Ikaruga with the thought of Ikaruga looking down on her. After so many cold shoulders from Ikaruga, Katsuragi transformed into her shinobi wardrobe, catching Ikaruga off guard. She decided that instead of trying to talk to Ikaruga, she should use force. Ikaruga understood and transformed herself. Katsuragi realized how the atmosphere changed as soon as Ikaruga lifted her sword in the air. She then asked her if she hates her that much. Ikaruga deny that and stated how she just doesn't want to get involved with Katsuragi. With nothing else to say, the two prepare themselves and quickly attempted to strike one another with full force.

Chapter 2
Both Katsuragi and Ikaruga struck one another at the same time. However, only Ikaruga was able to inflict some damage as Katsuragi's shirt was undone by Ikaruga's Hien. Ikaruga declared herself a winner and walked up, leaving Katsuragi alone with a grin on her face.

The next day, Katsuragi decided to sit next to Ikaruga as she worked. Bothered by it, Ikaruga suggested Katsuragi to go back to her seat while wondering why her desk is fine but the others aren't. Katsuragi wanted Ikaruga to tolerate her a bit, but no improvement yet. With another plan in mind, Katsuragi quickly lifted Ikaruga's shirt up as she admired her figure. Ikaruga then stated how annoying Katsuragi have been for a while now while Katsuragi raised her guard up. Katsuragi mentioned how she won't lose in a fight again. Ikaruga paused for a bit and then suggested that the two of them should go back to their seats and wait for Kiriya to arrive. Suddenly, Katsuragi tapped Ikaruga's right breast, which angered Ikaruga as she started attacking Katsuragi. As she did so, Kiriya walked into the classroom and noticed the two. He awkwardly ignored what was happened and began explaining lesson for today. Afterwards, he ordered both Katsuragi and Ikaruga to clean up the classroom, which the two understood.

Outside on the Training Field, both Katsuragi and Ikaruga were competing on who can counter the most arrows without getting hit. So far, it was a tie, but as Katsuragi stopped paying attention, Ikaruga saved her quickly, resulting in Ikaruga becoming victorious. Once again, Katsuragi was frustrated for losing. As the two prepare to report to Kiriya, Katsuragi thanked Ikaruga for saving her, but Ikaruga didn't respond. The two jumped from tree branch to tree branch as Katsuragi questioned why Ikaruga why she didn't say "you're welcome."

Back in the classroom, Kiriya explained to the two about the final test, how it's a special one this time around, The objective is to obtain a scroll from a specific student in Hanzō Academy before 24 hours is up. Ikaruga questioned if this student is an ordinary citizen or a shinobi. Kiriya replied by saying that the person is a shinobi and how their aim is to observe the target. With that said, both Katsuragi and Ikaruga left and began to hunt down the shinobi.

On the school rooftop, Katsuragi was searching left and right when suddenly, she heard a voice talking to her from somewhere around the area. The voice mentioned how she won't reveal herself. Katsuragi spotted the shinobi as the shinobi decided to show proof through fighting. As Katsuragi prepared herself, the shinobi swiftly appeared behind her. Katsuragi quickly noticed how fast she was and attempted to attack the person with a powerful kick. The shinobi blocked the attack with just her left fingers. The shinobi stated how she's full of openings and that now is the time for Katsuragi to strike.

Suddenly, Ikaruga appeared behind the shinobi and attempted to strike her with Hien, but she quickly grabbed Hien and countered Ikaruga with Hien itself. Ikaruga was surprised by the amount of power the shinobi has. Katsuragi quickly went after the shinobi again and attempted to attack her, only to be countered again and thrown to the ground. Ikaruga attempted the same method and was thrown to the ground as well. The shinobi states how the core values of the ninja class has fallen. Both Katsuragi and Ikaruga slowly got up from the ground and Katsuragi asked the person who she is and how she never heard of anyone as strong as her.

Slowly, the shinobi transformed into her shinobi wardrobe. In the far distance, Kiriya was watching the battle. He questions how both Katsuragi and Ikaruga can get past the wall, which is the strongest shinobi in Hanzō Academy. The shinobi introduced herself as Daidouji as she demanded Katsuragi and Ikaruga to fight her to their fullest, otherwise she will end them right now.

Hanzō National Academy

Chapter 1
Section 1: Combat Practice
It’s a new day at the Hanzō National Academy. Inside the ninja room from within the school, Asuka is sleeping while her teacher, Kiriya, is teaching. Kiriya notices Asuka sleeping and tries to wake her up. After a couple of attempts, Asuka finally wakes up from her dream. Kiriya mocks Asuka by asking her if she finally found her path of the shinobi. Feeling surprised, Asuka asks Kiriya how he knows about that. Another student, Katsuragi, intervenes in the conversation and explains to Asuka how she talks in her sleep while also making suggestive noises. Asuka didn’t understand while the rest of her classmates, Ikaruga, Yagyū, and Hibari, either sigh or chuckle to themselves. Kiriya then tells Asuka to try and stay awake and to read up on Secret Ninja Arts to the class. Asuka nods as she begins reading.

As she reads out loud, Kiriya helps elaborate by reminding everyone what guardian they have. He then explains how to use Secret Ninja Arts, which can only be done by wielding the secret ninja arts scroll at all times. Katsuragi states how she keeps her secret ninja arts scroll under her skirt while Asuka keeps hers in her cleavage. Surprised to hear that, Katsuragi sexually harasses Asuka about wanting to check out her cleavage. However, Kiriya tells Katsuragi to not sexually harass others during class. With that said, Kiriya tells Asuka to continue reading out loud to the class.

As Asuka reads about the Super-Secret Ninja Art, she becomes confused about the fact that the description is short. However, Kiriya questions Asuka why that’s the case while saying that there’s a reason behind that. The reason being is because the Super-Secret Ninja Art Scroll is the school’s pride and joy and its content must be kept an absolute secret. Asuka begins to wonder what’s inside the scroll, but as she does so, the school bell rings. Kiriya tells the class that it’s time for basic martial arts instruction and that all students must meet him on the school’s rooftop. With that said, the students did as they were told and went to the school’s rooftop.

On the school’s rooftop, Kiriya begins explaining about how there are shinobi out there known as “evil shinobi”. The class nods while Asuka states that as good shinobi, they must work to uphold justice. Kiriya then states to the class that from the moment they set foot on Hanzō National Academy, they were shinobi and that he would like for all five of them to set aside their instincts as students. With that said, Kiriya believes that he worked the student hard enough for them to be prepared to face what awaits them.

The class nods as Kiriya begins explaining about the shinobi barrier. It is a shinobi dueling space that blockades off a space of a fixed size, impenetrable to the average person. While it can be useful to covert activities, the downside of using a shinobi barrier is since shinobi can sense its activation, you’ll give away your position.

The class nods again while Kiriya tells them that it’s time to begin practical combat training. He then explains to them that they’ll be fighting dummies he made himself. Since there’s no regular students around, he’s allowing all five of them to give it everything they got. With that said, Kiriya begins the training and disappears into thin air and the students begins their training.

Section 3: Street Sweeping
Later on in class, Ikaruga sees the other students all huddle up arguing about something. They didn’t respond but Ikaruga begins to get annoyed as she states how she would like to know what’s wrong. Still being ignored, Ikaruga raises her voice and tells everyone to be quiet and listen to her. Asuka notices Ikaruga and apologizes. With everyone finally giving Ikaruga their attention, Ikaruga asks again what’s the problem. Asuka explains how it wasn’t a big deal at first as they were wondering what to eat when they get home. No one was agreeing with one another and because of that, things escalated. Ikaruga understands as she asks Asuka what everyone wishes to eat. Asuka replies with her saying how she wants sushi rolls, Katsuragi wants ramen, Yagyū wants dried squid, and Hibari wants sweets. Ikaruga realizes how this situation is problematic, but as class rep, she decides to help find a way to resolve this predicament. With that said, Ikaruga went out to find the solution.

In the ninja room after Ikaruga gathered the food and put together something, Ikaruga shows Asuka and the other her creation, which she calls “Sweet Squid Ramen Roll”. Ikaruga explains how friends should partake be happy to partake of the same foods together. However, Asuka begins to wonder how she should say what she wants say regarding Ikaruga’s creation in a delicate way. However, Asuka realizes that Ikaruga worked hard to gather everything for everyone, so she decides to give the Sweet Squid Ramen Roll a try. As she eats it, she begins to feel sick for a second, but then she begins to like it. Ikaruga was happy to hear it, but Asuka tells Ikaruga that she was in the mood for just a plain old sushi roll.

Section 4: Get Back the Purse
Inside the ninja room after Asuka meets the boy, the entire morning passes with a daze with Asuka thinking about that boy from earlier and how he confessed to her. Since no one has ever confessed to her before, Asuka doesn’t know how to react to that. Hibari notices Asuka not eating her lunch as she asks her what’s wrong. Asuka replies as she shakes her head and explains to her what happened to her earlier. Everyone is the room becomes stunned with the news as they begin asking Asuka for the details. Asuka begins telling everyone everything that happened.

Afterwards, Ikaruga wants to confirm to Asuka that this boy she encountered earlier was a baseball player from another school. Asuka nods and Katsuragi becomes impressed about the fact that Asuka was able get a nice catch. Hibari then asks Ikaruga about baseball in general while Ikaruga explains to her how pro baseball players are in par with any shinobi. Ikaruga turns to Asuka asking her what she’s going to do about this. However, Yagyū quietly reminds everyone that they are shinobi and that they mustn’t forget that. The ninja room went from being active to complete silence. Asuka states that she already knows and how she just wants to be a shinobi. She doesn’t even know how a date works to begin with or who that boy really is. With her mood now improved, Asuka begins to eat her lunch.

On the next day inside the ninja room, the morning classes’ ends and the ninja room’s door flies open with the sushi chef coming in with a burst of laughter. Asuka realizes that the chef was none other than his grandfather, Hanzō. Asuka was happy to see him while Kiriya bows his head to him. However, Hanzō tells Kiriya to stops since he’s now retired. Beforehand, Hanzō was a legendary shinobi that a lot of people respected. There has been rumors saying that Hanzō National Academy was named after him to honor him. However, no civilians know anything about him or his activities. With that said, Asuka asks Hanzō what he’s doing here at Hanzō National Academy while Hanzō explains how he figures he should make some lunch for her and her friends.

As everyone quickly gathers around Hanzō, he gives Asuka a bucket of sushi rolls he made himself and tells Asuka to pass them out to everyone. Everyone begins to eat the sushi rolls with smiles on their faces. Hanzō watches the students while smiling and then asks Asuka to come over for a minute.

Section 5: Punish the Harasser
Inside the hallways, Katsuragi notices Asuka apologizing to woman. She begins to feel that Asuka is being a pushover to whoever she’s dealing with. The woman begins to check out her thighs, which has Asuka feeling uncomfortable. Katsuragi starts sighing as she watches since she wishes for Asuka to fight back when being pushed around, even though they have to keep their strengths as a shinobi hidden from the average person. She then steps up and tells the person to lay off of Asuka. Asuka was surprised to see Katsuragi while Katsuragi states how she likes copping a good feeling herself, but she hates seeing sexual harassment being done by others, so she decides to go and teach the person a lesson.

Afterwards, Asuka begins to explain to Katsuragi that the person she just beat up was in fact a member of the Public Morals Committee. Katsuragi becomes confused while Asuka continues by saying how she was telling her to lengthen her skirt. Katsuragi begins to apologize for what she has done while also laughing it out since she feels that it was just an accident. However, Asuka realizes that Katsuragi was faking her laugh.

Section 7: Hibari's Tutoring
In the ninja room, Hibari is apologizing to Kiriya while Kiriya explains to Hibari how difficult it is to take the particular class without a kunai, which Hibari forgot her own back at home. As he sighs, Kiriya tell Hibari that she’ll have to take supplemental lessons after school, which shocks Hibari since she was planning on eating banana crepes with everyone after school. Suddenly, Asuka intervenes and states that she and the other students are going to take those lessons as well. Kiriya asks her why and Asuka responds by saying how they’re all in this together since that’s what friends do. Kiriya understands and tell the students that the lessons will take place outside in the yard and whoever scores lowest will be remanded for additional lessons. With that said, the students went out and beings the lesson.

Afterwards, Hibari was surprised to see that she won while Asuka was in last place. However, both Kiriya and Hibari realizes that Asuka lost on purpose. Asuka tries to hide the fact, but it only makes Hibari feel even worst. She begins to sincerely apologize as she states how hard it is being the shield for your friends. However, Hibari understands what Asuka was trying to do for her, which she appreciates. With that said, the two prepare for their extra lessons.

Katsuragi Chapter 1 CG (SKB)

Section 8: Hebijo Assassin
Inside Katsuragi’s dorm, Katsuragi wakes up from a dream with her beating up people that can’t put up a good fight and challenge. The time was now 4 AM. Katsuragi realizes that she’s been having the same adrenaline-rushed dream almost every night for the past few years before waking up. She feels that it’s unsatisfying and unrewarding with just the rush she gets.

Katsuragi then decides to get up from her bed, get changed, and jumped out of the dorm’s window as she dashes off into the mountains. As she does her usual training, she wonders when she’ll be able to fight someone formidable since all she’s been doing is fighting dummies at school. After breaking a sweat, she finally notices the sun slowly rising up from the far distance. She always admires the early morning hours.

As she finishes up her training and starts heading back to the dorm, she begins to feel a small presence behind her. She slowly turns around but there was no one there. Without even thinking, Katsuragi calls out to her pet pedigree Pomeranian, Choco. She then begins to remember the times when she was with him before disappearing on her for some reason. Because of that, whenever she feels a small, faint presence near her, she begin to think it’s him. However, Katsuragi got back to her senses and begins to think that the small presence couldn’t have been Choco. However, she hasn’t given up hope that one day, she’ll reunite with him. She then begins to remember how her own parents disappeared as well along with Choco. She always wondered why her parents disappeared on her like that, but deep down, she think she knows the answer, which is why Katsuragi wants to be as strong as she can be.

As she entered the ninja room, Katsuragi forces herself from being mopey to cheery as she prepares her breakfast at the sushi counter. She fixes herself up a bowl of ramen. As she’s about to eat, a weird sight suddenly fills her vision. She notices something round that’s moving on the other side of the sliding door.

Katsuragi quickly flings the door open without thinking and sees a soft, fluffy ball floating in the air. She wonders if it’s one of Kiriya’s trap, but instead deducted into thinking that it’s an enemy’s trap. Katsuragi quickly leaps back and kicks the ball, cutting it in two. The ball then disappears into smoke with nothing left behind. Katsuragi scans her surroundings carefully for threats, but she couldn’t see anything. She begins to figure that the ball was used for the enemy to spy on them while also wondering what kind of data were the enemy able to acquire. Because of that, Katsuragi believes that in the future, her and the other students are about to have some unpleasant company.

Suddenly, Katsuragi hears Asuka asking her what’s wrong from the distance. She’s came into the room at some point. Katsuragi turns to Asuka and tells her that there’s nothing wrong. Asuka then points towards the unfinished ramen while telling Katsuragi how she’s late for class and the ramen is unfinished, so she knows something is wrong. Katsuragi gives up and tells Asuka that she’ll explain everything once everyone else arrives.

Once everyone is present, Katsuragi tells them what happened earlier. Hibari suggests that they should let Kiriya know, which Yagyū agrees to, but Ikaruga mentions how Kiriya is out on business at the moment, which everyone nods to as they remembered. Hibari then wonders what they’ll all do once the enemy attacks, but Yagyū quickly comforts Hibari by telling her that they’re not sure if they will attack. Katsuragi nods as she begins to think about how she wants to know how strong she really is and how she wants to fight someone tough. She also figures how the enemy will definitely come at some point due to Kiriya not being present at the moment.

Suddenly, Hibari notices a girl outside on the courtyard. Katsuragi was able to notice the girl’s thirst for blood up in the air. The enemy has finally arrived and the students quickly moved to the courtyard as a group. As they arrived, Katsuragi asks for the black-haired girl’s name. However, the black-haired girl asks them if they are shinobi students as she steps forward. The black-haired girl introduces herself as Homura, a shinobi student from Hebijo Clandestine Academy. Katsuragi recalls of the academy and how notorious it is while also mysterious. Homura asks them if they’re Hanzō students but Ikaruga tries to deny the fact that they are. However, Homura takes out a photograph of Katsuragi about to kick the ball while invoking a shinobi barrier. As Homura grins at the Hanzō students, she states how they’re still around after she invoked a shinobi barrier, clarifying the fact that they’re shinobi. Katsuragi asks Homura what if they are shinobi students while Homura replies by telling them to hand over the Super-Secret Ninja Art Scroll. However, Ikaruga tells her that they have no plans to do so. As Katsuragi grins and asks Homura what would happen if they don’t give it up, Homura laughs and draws a sword while saying how she’ll take by force instead.

Katsuragi’s interests piqued as she prepares for a fight, but Asuka tells her to step aside. Confused about whether Asuka and Homura are already acquainted, Katsuragi steps aside since she knows that shinobi battles are supposed to be one-on-one. However, another girl but with an expressionless look on her face walks up and tells Katsuragi that she’ll fight her instead. Katsuragi asks for the expressionless girl’s name as the girl calls herself Hikage. Quickly, Hikage takes out her knife and slashes at Katsuragi with Katsuragu managing to dodge at the last moment. Katsuragi then asks Hikage if she strong while Hikage replies by saying that she has to be. Katsuragi follows up by asking her why while Hikage tells her that if she’s not strong then she’s not following orders.

Katsuragi begins to smile as she’s finally able to fight a tough opponent. She then tells the rest of the Hanzō students to stand back as both herself and Asuka will handle both Homura and Hikage. The others does so as both Asuka and Katsuragi prepare for their first taste of real combat.

Chapter 2
Section 1: Katsuragi's Training
After the thrashing from Hebijo Clandestine Academy, the ninja room’s atmosphere becomes thick and heavy. Kiriya notices his students’ faces filled with despair. He isn’t surprised since there’s a world of difference between classwork and actual combat. Finally speaking, Kiriya tells his students that the principal told him what happened to them. He stops speaking right there not being able to find the words to continue. He begins to feel conflicted if he should praise them for managing to stay alive, which is noteworthy since what they went through was their first real battle. Suddenly, Asuka calls out to Kiriya with a despair look in his eyes. The looks reminds Kiriya of a former student of his that goes by the name of “Rin”. He then remembers that he’ll never let what happened in the past happen again. Finally, Kiriya was able to find the words to continue speaking by telling all five of them that if it bothers them so much that they’ve been defeated by Hebijo students, then they should all give up on being a shinobi and get out. As he said that, he begins having more flashbacks of Rin.

Kiriya tells his students again that they should just give up and get out if they’re going to let their defeat by the Hebijo student bother them so much. Suddenly, the change in the atmosphere changed in the ninja room. Ikaruga tells Kiriya about what he said sounds a bit harsh while Katsuragi follows up with a nod but with irritation. She then tells Kiriya how it doesn’t matter what he says about her, but how Asuka is still a 2nd year and she took on some serious competition while surviving, which isn’t a small task. Katsuragi then asks Kiriya to at least praise her for that. However, Asuka looks downward with the rims of her eyes becoming red. Kiriya wants to praise her, but she knows a half-hearted praise will only result in more sorrow down the road. Next, Kiriya explains how Hebijo is known for producing shinobi involved in politics and business while also having no qualms about very nasty work. The students remains breathless at Kiriya’s words. Kiriya continues by saying how they cannot be bargained or reasoned with and how they absolutely will not stop until they achieve their goal, which is much like their namesake, the serpent. Ikaruga asks Kiriya with a frown on her face if there’s no way of avoiding the conflict. Kiriya answers by telling her that they don’t negotiate and how they’ll attack. With that said, Katsuragi asks Kiriya what if they go on the offensive themselves. Sadly, Kiriya shakes his head slightly while explaining how even though that’s a nice thought, they don’t have any idea where the Hebijo Headquarters is located. The explanations causes Katsuragi to sink at his words. However, Hibari speaks up to break the tension by saying how Kiriya is now around, so they’ll all be fine while Ikaruga agrees with her. The statement causes relief to flood the students faces while Kiriya realizes that they all rely on him and how it’s true that he can help them, considering the students are still studying as shinobi and how they left their normal lives years ago. It’s only natural for all five of them to feel intimidated at fighting a powerful opponent.

Kiriya tells the students that those who rely on him during the fight with Hebijo should give up on being a shinobi and leave. He knows that if he helps them fight off Hebijo, it wouldn’t help them at all. The Path of a Shinobi is a harsh one. One must continue to fight, even with no help coming. Despite what Kiriya has said, there is one thing that he can do for those who seek to become a part of that world, which is teaching them not to be overcome with emotion. He knows that he can’t let Rin’s fate happen again. With that said, the students’ beings to listen to Kiriya’s words in silence. No one of them decided to move.

Suddenly, Asuka speaks up with her hands raised by telling Kiriya that she needs more training. Katsuragi follows up and does the same. Afterwards, the other students raises their hands as well. Hibari also tells Kiriya to work her hard. Despite what the students said, Kiriya is still feeling a natural doubt, but since their passion was so infectious, he smiles. With that said, Kiriya tells the students that he sees their resolves and then tells them to prepare for training. He knows that he can’t protect them directly, but he will teach them everything he knows since that’s the only way for him to protect them.

As the students prepare for their training, Katsuragi lets out a sigh. Ikaruga caught sight of Katsuragi doing so and asks her if she’s alright. Katsuragi asks her what she meant but Ikaruga tells her how she’s still feeling depressed. To hide her sadness, Katsuragi tells Ikaruga how she’s not bothered by the fact that Hebijo beat them. Ikaruga understands while Katsuragi apologizes while also thanking her for checking up on her. In return, Katsuragi suggest motorboating Ikaruga’s breasts. However, Ikaruga denies the offer, but she tells Katsuragi that if she needs someone to talk to, she can go to her. Afterwards, Ikaruga left with a Katsuragi sighing about the fact that Ikaruga was able to tell that she was depressed quickly. She then remembers the fight she recently had with Hikage and how Hikage told her that she’s weak. Katsuragi begins to wonder if she really is weak considering how Hikage made her look like a complete idiot. However, she decides to not let it get to her that much and decides to go and train as hard as he can to the point that no one can beat her.

After her training session, Katsuragi begins to feel great as she’s slowly becoming stronger. She then starts saying how she’s looking forward to kicking Hikage’s ass next time while also thinking about giving her Katsuragi’s trademark groping hell.

Section 3: Intercept Hebijos
As Ikaruga begins maintaining her sword, Hien, inside the ninja room, Asuka and the others walks inside. They all exchange a friendly “good morning” and then a lively conversation begins. Despite all of the hardship and rigorous training they all go through, Ikaruga is impressed with Asuka the most since despite what happens, she never loses her bright and cheerful expression. She greets everything with a smile. While Ikaruga also goes through the same difficulty to keep her classmates organized as class representative, she begins to wonder if Asuka should lead the team instead of her.

As Ikaruga begins to lose herself in her thought, Kiriya walks into the classroom. He tells the class that he’ll be teaching them genealogy as part of the day’s lessons. Quickly, Katsuragi complains to Kiriya about how they should be focusing on training instead of family trees. However, Kiriya lets out a sigh and explains to her that breaks are a crucial aspect to training. With that said, Hibari questions Kirya what they’ll be doing with genealogy while Kiriya explains to them that they’ll be making a shinobi family tree to see if they have any shinobi ancestors while learning what they might have inherited from them. Suddenly, Asuka raises her hand and asks Kiriya how far back they should go, which Kiriya answers by telling them to start from the earliest shinobi, up to themselves. Asuka nods with enthusiasm as she quickly makes her shinobi family tree, which consists of three generations: her grandfather, her mother, and herself. Asuka then explains how her mother is a shinobi like her grandfather, how her father is a civilian who wasn’t completely happy with Asuka becoming a shinobi. However, Asuka wishes to be a powerful one, just like her grandfather. As Katsuragi and Yagyū writes in silence, Hibari begins to moan about how she has to write down everyone from her long line of shinobi. Suddenly, Kiriya asks Ikaruga what’s wrong as Ikaruga stops writing. Ikaruga apologizes as she notices that she’s almost finished making her family tree. However, when she thinks about her family, she’s reminded of her older brother. He is studying business management, following in the footsteps of their father. In truth, however, he wished to become a shinobi.

Ikaruga finishes her family tree by writing down her own name at the end. Her family tree is simply a straight line, from the head of the family, to herself. However, her brother’s’ name wasn’t included. His name would be where Ikaruga’s name is at if he was a shinobi. With that thought of feeling a burden of what happened in the past, Ikaruga’s eyes begins to well. Asuka notices Ikaruga looking upset and asks her what’s wrong, but she tells her that it’s nothing while forcing a smile.

As time went by, it’s now lunch time. The breeze was nice, so the students decided to eat outside for a change. As they begin to eat, Hibari is bothered by how Yagyū is eating dried squid again. However, Yagyū tells Hibari to not make light of the dried squid. As Ikaruga prepares her multi-course meal, she realizes that she forgot the tea. She tells the others that she’ll be back as she heads back to the ninja room to get the Japanese tea set.

Later on during the day, Asuka begins to feel tired from training all day, but she knows that she can’t complain because of how important it is for her to get stronger. She then begins to wonder why the Hebijo girls have to be so focused on fighting to grow stronger while also wonder if there’s no other way.

Suddenly, a shinobi barrier appeared. Asuka begins sensing a couple of enemies around the area. One of them being Homura as she walks up to Asuka and tells her how no one will be able to interrupt them. Homura tells Asuka to hand over the Super-Secret Ninja Scroll once again while also threatening to slaughter the entire student body. Asuka begins asking her why she would involve innocent people into their quarrel while Homura explains to Asuka how shinobi are awful by nature. Asuka then tells her how that isn’t the Path of the Shinobi. With that said, Homura asks Asuka what the Path of the Shinobi really is from her perspective. However, Asuka tells her that she doesn’t know yet, but she will once she does one day. Homura then tells her that she wouldn’t be able to since she won’t be walking out alive according to her while also telling her how she’s not alone. Asuka begins to wonder what she can do when suddenly, the rest of the Hanzō students steps in to help her. With that said, the group went on to take down the mob.

Afterwards, Homura is impressed with the show the Hanzō students performed as she suggests a one on one match between the Hanzō students and the Hebijo students. Asuka accepts the challenge of fighting Homura one on one while Homura tells her that they should fight in an open space, which is beneficial for Asuka since she won’t have to worry about the other students. As Asuka asks her where, Homura gives her a letter for her to first, which consists of the locations each participating student must go to. With that said, the Hanzō students prepare themselves as they spread out and head for the five specific locations for their one on one matches with the Hebijo students.

Section 5: Katsuragi vs Hikage
At Katsuragi’s location, Katsuragi is waiting all by herself as she wonders who her opponent is. Suddenly, an attack went towards Katsuragi as she quickly dodges it. The attack came from Hikage as she approaches Katsuragi silently. Katsuragi figures that her opponent was Hikage while Hikage acknowledge her. Katsuragi then becomes excited about how she’s going to have a good fight with Hikage. However, Hikage begins to wonder what she meant by a “good fight”. Katsuragi nods as she states whenever she fights a tough opponent, her blood begins to boil. Still not understanding, Hikage asks her why that’s the case. Katsuragi begins to get confused about the way Hikage is acting while telling her how she’s been training for a rematch against her. Hikage nods but then she decides to leave abruptly. Katsuragi becomes surprised about what Hikage just did, but she decides to give chase in order to have another shot at fighting.

After finally catching up, Katsuragi demands Hikage to fight her, but Hikage asks why she should. Katsuragi then states that she wants to know if she really got stronger after the amount of training she went through. Hikage still doesn’t understand as she tells Katsuragi how there’s plenty of people to fight in order to test yourself. Katsuragi then explains how it wouldn’t mean anything otherwise but Hikage asks why. However, Katsuragi tells Hikage that if she doesn’t fight her, she wouldn’t be able to relax. She also acknowledges Hikage’s strength and how she wants to fight her in order to overcome this obstacle. Hikage shrugs as she states how she doesn’t understand Katsuragi’s feelings about this. With that said, Katsuragi decides that instead of explaining it, she might as well use her fists to do the talking instead.

After the fight, Katsuragi yells out how she won the fight, but Hikage didn’t say anything. Katsuragi then thanks Hikage for the fight and tells her that they should shake on it. However, Hikage asks Katsuragi why she should shake her hand while Katsuragi explains to Hikage how the fight is over and that there’s no hard feelings. Hikage doesn’t understand as she then tells Katsuragi how she didn’t really win. Katsuragi figures that Hikage was pissed that she “lost” the fight, but Hikage tells her that she was never “pissed” before. Katsuragi becomes surprised as Hikage explains to her how she doesn’t understand feelings at all because she doesn’t have feelings herself. Katsuragi begins to question her but Hikage doesn’t understand what she’s talking about. Katsuragi then asks if she’s sure and Hikage tells her that she really doesn’t have feelings and how she didn’t really win the fight. She then tells Katsuragi how she’ll see soon enough about what she means by that. With that said, Hikage leaves the area with Katsuragi wondering what’s wrong with her.

Chapter 3
Section 1: Summer Mistake

201109292056

On a train ride to the beach, the Hanzo students are playing a game of cards. As Yagyū chooses the right side instead of left, it reveals the joker instead of the ace of diamonds. Katsuragi looks down at Yagyū triumphantly while Hibari becomes disappointed. It was time for the losers to pay the price according to Katsuragi. As Katsuragi advances forward towards Hibari while laughing evily, Yagyū steps in and tries to convince Katsuragi that she’ll pay the price instead. However, Katsuragi explains that since the card game was a team battle, if one person loses in that team, everyone in the team is responsible. With that said, Katsuragi approaches both Hibari and Yagyū and flicks both of their foreheads as hard as she can. As Hibari complains about the pain she received by Katsuragi, Yagyū looks at the joker card in her hand and slowly starts to crush it. Quickly, Katsuragi grabs Yagyū’s hand and tells her to not destroy the cards and to not be a sore loser.

Suddenly, Ikaruga intervenes and tells them to be quiet to prevent them from disturbing the other passengers. They all took a quick glance around and notice that all of the passengers were staring at them. Katsuragi quickly apologizes and takes her seat. As they settle down, Hibari states how they might have overdid it a little as she sticks out her tongue playfully. Suddenly, they all began to smell the scent of the ocean as the train leaves a tunnel. Asuka peers out of the window and notice the ocean while stating how they should smell the salty air around them. While Katsuragi agrees, she states that she prefers the scent of young women as she begins to press her nose against Asuka’s body. Asuka demands Katsuragi to stop the sexual harassment while feeling embarrassed but Katsuragi insists that she smells nice and how she’ll take three cups instead of two. Suddenly, Hibari decides to join in on smelling Asuka, but then Ikaruga intervenes and tells all of them to be quiet as she raises her voice. The entire car was silent and all eyes were on Ikaruga. Ikaruga quickly apologizes to everyone.

In her mind, Yagyū recalls that they’re not going on a mission but instead, a genuine vacation on the beach. She then recalls how confused everyone was when Kiriya told them to go on a vacation. In a flashback, Yagyū questioned Kiriya why they should go on a vacation given what’s going on with them at the moment, but Kiriya responds by telling them how there’s no better time. Yagyū then figured what Kiriya meant by his statement considering how in the future, the battles will grow more intense, so it would be wise to grow memories as regular students first.

Yagyū then recalls of the day when the Hanzo students went to their designated spots to fight the Hebijo students. Hebijo’s plan was to distract the Hanzo students while keeping Hanzo Academy defenseless in order to obtain the Super-Secret Ninja Art Scroll. However, when both Hibari and Yagyū came back from their fight in a panic, they found dozens of lesser Hebijo shinobi lying defeated in the courtyards. Near them was Asuka, Ikaruga, and Katsuragi. Hibari asked them if they were the ones that took them down, but they all shook their heads. They then reminded them that Kiriya wasn’t participating in the battle between Hanzo and Hebijo. Suddenly, a loud voice appeared saying that the enemy have been vanquished. The Hanzo students looked around but couldn’t find out where the voice is coming from. Asuka then yells out to the voice, telling it to show themselves to allow them to express gratitude. The voice calls themselves Daidouji and how she’s a shinobi of Hanzo. The Hanzo students then gave each other glances and recalled Daidouji being a legendary senior with unusual power. She was ready to take the final exam on her freshman year, but for some reason, she never graduated. Instead, she repeats her senior year endlessly.

As Hibari tries thanking Daidouji while still looking for her, Daidouji states how she’s not affiliated with them, causing Hibari’s faced to be clouded over with anxiety as she asks why she helped them. Daidouji then tells them that she’ll explain why once they all obtain true power. With that said, Daidouji’s voice disappeared.

As the Hanzo students begins to change into their bathing suit in the dressing room on the beach, Katsuragi steps out with enthusiasm and announces the annual swimsuit inspection. The first to come out was Yagyū as she’s wearing a frilly pink-checkered bikini. As Katsuragi examines her, Yagyū starts becoming uncomfortable. Suddenly, Asuka comes out of the dressing room with a towel around her as she tells Katsuragi to stop being a perv. Katsuragi quickly calls foul on Asuka as she approaches her and immediately tears off Asuka’s towel, revealing a multi-colored striped bikini. Katsuragi then examines Asuka and was liking Asuka’s figure to the point of wanting to tear off the bikini as well. Next, Ikaruga steps out of the dressing room, wearing a simple, dark brown bikini as she tells Katsuragi to stop her nonsense. As Katsuragi examines Ikaruga and expresses how much she likes the way Ikaruga looks, Ikaruga ignores Katsuragi and briskly moves to the beach. Lastly, Hibari cheerfully leaves the dressing room, wearing a frilly ruffled pink-polka dots bikini. Katsuragi compliments Hibari as she appears to be on the verge of fainting due to Hibari’s looks. Yagyū was about to lose it, but then she notices how she’s wearing the same color as Hibari, which made her feel a little happy.

Afterwards, Asuka tells the group that they should all go swimming as she runs towards the water. Katsuragi and Hibari follow suit, but Yagyū decides to walk slowly as she’s enjoying the warmth of the and on her feet. She then sits down on the sand as she watches the others play on the surf. She begins to think about the amount of training they would all be doing starting tomorrow, and then they’ll be fighting the Hebijo students once again, but then she feels how good it is to take it easy for a while as regular students. Suddenly, Yagyū notices Hibari waving at her. She asks Yagyū to come and join them and Yagyū nods as she gets up, wipe the sand off her butt, and then went for the ocean.

Later on, Asuka entrusts Hibari with the key to the dressing room while Hibari nods and tells her how she’ll keep the key in a special hiding spot. With that said, the two go back to playing in the water. Meanwhile, Haruka manages to find the key Hibari hid. When they were all finished playing, Asuka asks Hibari for the key. However, Hibari couldn’t find the key anywhere. Asuka notice someone selling their clothes past the beach. Quickly, the group hurried to get their belongings back.

Afterwards, while Hibari was happy they got their belongings back, she feels guilty about losing the key in the first place. She then wonders why no one is angry at her at all. Meanwhile in the distance, Haruka was annoyed about why no one was angry at Hibari for what happened. She then figures that she’s going to have to do something about it herself personally.

Section 3: Infiltrate Hebijo

Waiting on Yagyu's Recovery CG (SKB)

Outside of the emergency room in the hospital, everyone, including Kiriya, is waiting for the doctor to come and give them the update on Yagyū’s condition. Hibari recalls the doctor telling them beforehand that Yagyū was hit by a poison-coated bullet, causing her life to be at risk. As Hibari blames herself for what happened to Yagyū, Asuka mutters to Hibari and reassures her that Yagyū will pull through while Katsuragi agrees. However, Hibari continues to blame herself and wants to take responsibility. She begins to wish for someone to just tell her that it’s her fault, but everyone has been kind and understanding, causing her to feel even more miserable. Suddenly, the group begins to hear footsteps approaching down the hall. As they stand up in unison, a female nurse runs in. Kiriya asks her how Yagyū is and the nurse smiles saying that the operation was a complete success. Everyone is in relief. Due to Yagyū needing to sleep off the anesthetic for the rest of the day, they all decide to leave and come back tomorrow. Before they left, Hibari tells the group that she has an errand to take care of and that they should go on without her. Asuka asks why and Hibari explains that she needs to buy something and that she’ll be back. She then turns around and runs off.

Section 4: Where da Scrolls at?
The next day at Hanzo Academy, Asuka asks Katsuragi if she seen Hibari anywhere. However, Katsuragi didn’t. Asuka then begins to feel that Hibari did blame herself for what happened to Yagyū. Suddenly, Homura approaches them while creating a shinobi barrier and told them to not worry about her. Katsuragi asks Homura what she means by that and Homura explains that Hibari is now a student at Hebijo Academy and how she’s not coming back to Hanzo Academy. Asuka then yells at Homura saying how Hibari would never withdraw from Hanzo Academy and to stop lying. However, Homura states that she’s not lying, but Asuka insists that she is. With that said, Homura tells Asuka to beat the truth out of her if she’s that convinced and Asuka does so.

Section 8: Hibari's Location
Meanwhile, Yagyū has finally arrive at Hebijo Academy. She wonders where Hibari is with frustration. The receiver in her ear emits a small beep. Earlier, she let Mirai go but without her noticing, she planted a little plant called a remora flower onto her back. The remora flower is good for camouflage and it has a tracking device within it. Suddenly, the beeping from Yagyū’s receiver starts beeping rapidly. With Mirai coming closer, Yagyū decides to conceal herself within the shadow of a tree. Shortly after, she notices Mirai with Homura, but there was no sign of Hibari. She waits for them to go away. She recalls seeing Haruka and Hibari together a while back. She could have get her from there but due to her current condition, she wouldn’t have survive. She then pulls away the fabric from her skin while noticing how the area that’s injured is dark red. The fight with Mirai she had earlier caused the wound to reopen. She decides to wait until Hibari is alone before she can rescue her. However, she begins to grind her teeth while feeling disappointed in herself. She begin to regret what she said to the others earlier since she didn’t expect to be in that particular predicament.

After dealing with Mirai, she placed the receiver in her ear. The beeping started becoming fainter as Mirai gets farther away from the shinobi hospital. As she prepared to leave the hospital, the others came in with Asuka telling her that she needs to rest. As Yagyū surveyed their faces, she grew exceedingly angry. She then asked them why they let Hibari go all by herself. Everyone stepped back as they couldn’t respond to that question. Yagyū figured that Hibari would do something so reckless in a situation like what happened before. Yagyū then tells everyone to stand aside. Ikaruga asked Yagyū what she could possibly do in her condition. Yagyū knew that in Ikaruga’s voice, she was concerned, but mostly, she decided to think that it was meddling. Katsuragi then protested telling Yagyū that she can’t find her by just blindly searching. With that said, Asuka states that they should all search for Hibari together since she’s their friend. However, Asuka’s words only annoyed Yagyū. Yagyū then asked all of them that if they’re Hibari’s friend, why did they leave Hibari alone. Asuka had no retort as she simply hung her head. Yagyū then tells them that she doesn’t don’t need friends how they’ll just get in the way, so she decided to push Asuka’s hands away and go and look for Hibari by herself. She heard Asuka calling for her but Yagyū didn’t look back.

Thinking about it now, Yagyū feels that she went too and how the blame wasn’t all of them. She feels that it was also her own fault for being wounded. If Yagyū wasn’t injured, Hibari wouldn’t have done what she did. However, Yagyū knows that she can’t sit back and do nothing. She then bind a strip of fabric tightly around the wound to stop the bleeding as she bites back the scream of pain. Yagyū feels that she can’t be without Hibari as no one could ever replace her. She’s scared of being alone and she was always scared of being in true solitude. The feeling reminds Yagyū of her deceased sister. She loved her so much but she died without warning, which crushed her deeply. There were times where Yagyū would be distracted by thinking about her little sister.

Suddenly, without paying attention, an enemy attacked Yagyū. Yagyū quickly dodges at the nick of time. In front of her was a solidarity lesser shinobi, demanding Yagyū to tell her what she’s doing at Hebijo. The shinobi then whistles, calling forth twenty all circling Yagyū. Yagyū begins to wonder what her choices are due to her current strength. She then begins to pull out grass with anesthetic properties and chews on them, despite being bitter while also taking out her umbrella and got in a stance. If she gets out alive, she wishes she could apologize to everyone about what she said earlier while also wishing she could talk to Hibari one last time. Despite her regrets, she puts them to aside and get ahold of her breathing. Once it was at the right pace, Yagyū begins attacking the shinobi.

Yagyū Attacking Hebijo Shinobi CG (SKB)

One by one, the Hebijo shinobi fall to the ground, but more was still coming towards Yagyū. With how quickly Yagyū is moving, her wound begins reopening. As she loses more blood, Yagyū begins to feel faint. However, despite how she feels, all she could think about was getting to Hibari. However, she finally got to her knees with no strength left. The Hebijo shinobi circile around her. As they prepare to attack, Yagyū closes her eyes, feeling that they will never open again. While doing so, recalls something in her past. She begins imagining Hibari.

She begins imagining Hibari.

Suddenly, Yagyū hear the sound of a sword striking a knife as she opens her eyes. There, she sees Asuka, Ikaruga, and Katsuragi. All of the Hebijo shinobi were neatly dispatched. Asuka turns to Yagyū with an innocent smile and tell her that even though they’re in her way, they decided to follow her anyways. Ikaruga draws closer and begins inspecting Yagyū’s injury. She then apply basic first aid to stop the bleeding. Yagyū then asks all three of them why they followed her. They all gave each other a glance and then Asuka tells Yagyū that they’re friends. That’s why. She recalls how she effectively told them that they’re not her friends anymore, but she couldn’t hold a candle to Asuka. Yagyū realizes that she can’t compete against someone that pure of spirit and thinks that maybe she can save her from her own stubbornness.

Asuka then asks Yagyū to fill them with the information on Hibari and the Super-Secret Ninja Art Scroll. Yagyū told Asuka what she knows and then Asuka decides to go and save Hibari on her own. When it comes to infiltrating the castle keep, it would be wise to infiltrate it alone. As Asuka departs for the keep, Yagyū quietly tells Asuka to please take care of Hibari because you’re her friend, so she can count on you. Asuka looks back and gives Yagyū a thumbs-up.

Chapter 4
Section 1: The Grey Area
Back at the ninja room in Hanzo Academy, Katsuragi tries to cheer up Hibari by being as cheerful as possible, but Hibari’s still down in the dumps. The group have realize that Hibari has been acting strange ever since she got back from Hebijo. Ikaruga then tries cheering her up, but it was no use. With Hibari not acting like her usual self, the mood has dropped. Suddenly, Kiriya walks in as he looks exhausted and sighs. He then tells everyone that he would like to have a moment with Hibari alone. Katsuragi tries to ask Kiriya what they’re going to talk about, but Kiriya didn’t reply. The group left Kiriya and Hibari by themselves as they left the room. Once they were outside, Asuka, Ikaruga, and Yagyū went in separate directions. Katsuragi understands how the others feel, so she decides to be by herself as well.

Katsuragi leaves the campus and begins to wander around. Without noticing the time, Katsuragi notice how the sun is starting to set. Suddenly, something went flying towards her. Katsuragi catches that something and realizes that it was Choco, her pet dog. She then begins hugging him with all of her might while Choco wags her tail like there’s no tomorrow. Tears starts to gush out of Katsuragi’s eyes. Eventually, Katsuragi lets go of Choco and when she does, Choco begins to run off. Katsuragi begins to follow him. As Choco looks back at Katsuragi, Katsuragi begins to realize that Choco is taking her to her parents. Over mountains, through valleys, and across rivers, the two stops at a mountain forest. Choco runs off and as Katsuragi keeps track of Choco from far away, she came across her parents working on a field of crops and plants. She figures that they have been weeding all day. Suddenly, Katsuragi begins to feel a wave of emotions taking over. Tracks begin to form down her cheeks. She doesn’t even bother to wipe her eyes. Choco then comes back and begins running around her feet as if he’s telling her to go and see her parents. However, Katsuragi tells Choco that she can’t see them right now.

Katsuragi begins to understand why her parents left her in the first place. It’s because they failed a mission as shinobi and if you fail a mission, you’re supposed to pay with your life. However, Katsuragi’s parents didn’t do so. Instead, they abandoned their house and ran. Since then, they have been labeled as “renegade shinobi” as they live in the humble village they’re currently living in. Katsuragi now understands that the reason why she was left behind is because her parents didn’t want her to get wrapped up in whatever punishment might come their way, and if she does to leave there now, their sacrifice would be for nothing. Katsuragi then thanks Choco for bringing her to the village by giving him a hug. It was enough for Katsuragi to know that her parents are safe and where they are. Katsuragi begins to wonder if she’ll ever be able to live with them again. She then decides that if she becomes an excellent shinobi and gain some influence, she believes that she can have her parents’ failures and desertion forgiven. With that in mind, Katsuragi knows that she has to get stronger. So strong that no one could stop her from seeing her parents whenever she wants. Katsuragi lets go of Choco and tells him to go back to his parents. Choco gives Katsuragi a puzzled look, but he did as he was told and runs back into the field. Katsuragi decides to leave quickly before her parents notice her as she wipes the tears from her eyes.

When Katsuragi went back to the ninja room, everyone’s standing at the door, looking confused. She’s surprised that Kiriya isn’t finished talking to Hibari. She then begins to strain to hear them. Kiriya asks Hibari that if she feels responsible for what happened, she should try and retrieve the Super-Secret Ninja Art Scroll. However, Hibari didn’t say a word. Katsuragi begins to feel that the conversation has been like that the majority of the time. She then decides to head inside the ninja room, disregarding Kiriya’s wish to speak with Hibari by himself. Kiriya asks Katsuragi who told her to come in but Katsuragi responds by telling him that he’s not getting anywhere. Yagyū then walks in and tells Kiriya that they would like to participate in the discussion while Ikaruga and Asuka walks in as well. Ikaruga then tells Kiriya that if it involves the Super-Secret Ninja Art Scroll, it’s a problem for all of them while Asuka agrees. Beaten down by his own students with words, Kiriya understands and tells them to take their seats. He then stands on the podium, looks out at all of his students, and then tells them that due to the Super-Secret Ninja Art Scroll not being in their possession, all shinobi studies at Hanzo Academy are suspended. The announcement causes all of the students to look pale. This also means that no shinobi school would accept them. Asuka then asks if it means they can’t be shinobi, which Kiriya nods to. Asuka begins to slump but Katsuragi gives Asuka a big slap on her back. Katsuragi then tells the others in a firm voice to cheer up because all they have to do is get the scroll back from Hebijo. Deep inside, Katsuragi knows that she can’t give up on being a shinobi since it’s the only way for her to reunite with her parents. With that said, everyone except for Hibari became motivated to get the scroll back. Katsuragi asks Hibari what the problem was and then Hibari asks Katsuragi how exactly are they supposed to get the Super-Secret Ninja Art Scroll back from Hebijo. Katsuragi replies by saying that they just have to beat them, but then Hibari begins telling them how the students at Hebijo are similar to them since they study just as hard and they look out for one another, meaning they’re not bad people as they thought. Just by saying that, Hibari looks like she threw up something she was holding back for a long while. She looks like she’s about to cry. Hibari then asks what’s the difference between a good shinobi and an evil one and why do they have to fight each other.

The Ninja Room goes quiet as Katsuragi didn’t have anything to say. She never thought of Hebijo as anything other than opponents before. Now that Hibari mentioned that, it all makes sense to Katsuragi that what’s considered good and evil is all a matter of perspective. She then remembers how even though renegade shinobi are “evil”, Katsuragi’s parents aren’t bad people since they did what they felt was right to protect her. She also now understands how Hebijo is the same since they’re doing what they feel is right. Hibari starts to say how she doesn’t know what she’s supposed to do after learning all of that. Suddenly, Asuka broke the silence and asks Kiriya for a favor. Kiriya asks what it was and then Asuka asks Kiriya to let her train. Kiriya wonders what Asuka is thinking while Katsuragi begins to think that Asuka has an idea and wants to show Hibari through training. She also begins to think that overtime, Asuka has turned into a real leader type, so she’ll let Asuka do as she pleases.

Section 5: Katsuragi's Training
In the training area where Katsuragi is at, Katsuragi wonders if she’s strong enough to handle the final battle with Hebijo. However, she feels that she’s not ready yet and the only way to communicate with Hebijo is with her fists. With that said, she knows that she can’t have regrets now as she begins her training.

Afterwards, Katsuragi’s power increases. However, she wonders if her new power will finally help Hikage understand what emotions are. Either way, Katsuragi decides to go with the flow and see what happens when it happens.


Chapter 5
Section 1: Hebijo Battle Plan
Night has fallen completely. Kiriya stands at the entrance of the shinobi village, waiting for his students to come back from their training. Little by little, footsteps are drawing near. Kiriya notices his students are all present and they’re shining more brightly than before. He even notices how Asuka mastered the Yin Scroll and everyone else’s blood boiling from the training they went through. As Kiriya spreads his arms and welcomes them, Asuka, Katsuragi, and Hibari approaches him while Yagyū and Ikaruga stand back, but their facial expressions was filled with joy instead of reserved. Asuka tells Kiriya with confidence that they’ll be going to Hebijo now. However, Kiriya shakes his head and tells them that they have a vacation day tomorrow. The students look at Kiriya confused while Asuka asks him why. Kiriya explains that before a decisive battle, you should spend the day before doing what you like. Right as he said that, the students’ faces become clear and determined. With that said, the students nod to one another and leave simultaneously. As they leave, Kiriya heads to the dressing room.

While arranging the equipment, Kiriya suddenly hears Asuka calling him from behind. He looks back surprised seeing all of his students. He realizes that he couldn’t feel any signs of their presence, to the point where he believes that they’ve become advanced enough to utterly deceive his perceptions. He begins to think about how far they’ve, to the point of showing a wry smile. Asuka tells Kiriya with no uncertain terms to not worry as they’re going to settle the fight with Hebijo Academy. However, Kiriya still feels worried that they all might die. But Asuka tells him that even if they die, they have no regrets since they’ll die as the shinobi they’ve always wanted to become. The others nod in agreement. Suddenly, an image of Rin appear in Kiriya’s mind as he wonders if she was the same in regards to dying as a shinobi. In the end though, Kiriya feels that he’s right back where he started. He still can’t get over Rin’s death. With spirit, Asuka tells Kiriya that they’ll all come back alive and safely. Kiriya looks at all of his students and notices how they’re no longer young girls of students, but adult shinobi. Something within Kiriya’s heart begins to grow lighter. Kiriya begins to understand and decide to trust them. If they come back alive, Kiriya feels that he could finally get over Rin’s death. With all of that talking, Kiriya realizes the morning sun peeking out from over the mountains.

Asuka tells everyone to huddle up. As they did, they all place their hands down in the middle and Asuka tells them to beat Hebijo and come back in one piece. All of their fists lift in the air as the sun climbs high, shining down on them. The curtain for the final battle has risen.

Section 2: First Emotions
At Katsuragi’s location, Hikage has been waiting for her. The feelings was mutual for Katsuragi. Katsuragi tells Hikage that she’s going to lose to her and that feeling of losing will eat her up inside. Her words interests Hikage as she got in a stance. With that said, the two begins their fight.

Afterwards, Katsuragi becomes victorious but she asks Hikage if she’s feeling and frustration after losing. Sadly, Hikage states that she wasn’t feeling any frustration. However, she then states that she feels refreshed and it’s an interesting feeling. Katsuragi nods and then Hikage asks her if she could shake her hand. Katsuragi questions her but then Hikage tells her that it’s for a good fight, with Katsuragi told her about before. Katsuragi understands and so the two shake one another’s hands. Hikage comments on how warm Katsuragi’s hands were. Katsuragi becomes happy to hear the compliment and then tells Hikage that she needs to go ahead, so she told her to rest until the fighting has stopped. Hikage understands while Katsuragi begins leaving. As she left, Hikage mutters to herself how the students at Hebijo lay down their lives if they’re defeated, which is why they carry a poison with them. She then begins to feel disappointed that she won’t be able to talk with Katsuragi some more. With that said, Hikage figures that the emotion she’s feeling at the moment is sadness.

Section 6: At Battle's End
As Ikaruga is cutting through one Hebijo shinobi after another, she’s still thinking about what Yomi told her. She then realizes Hien growling as she uses it while also noticing how Homura is looking down on everything on the castle keep. Having mastered the Super-Secret Ninja Art Scroll, she feels she can look down on the entire world. She realizes that Asuka has yet to arrive and she knows that it’s Asuka’s fate to fight Homura, not hers. Ikaruga decides to see it that her comrades are still safe from the enemies. She also realizes that at some point, Asuka became the heart of the group, meaning Ikaruga’s role as class representative is nothing but a facade. However, Ikaruga is fine with it since the class rep position is selected by seniority. With that said, Ikaruga has decided to make it so Asuka can fight with a clear mind. A good sum of Hebijo shinobi appear in front of him as they kneel, knowing that they’re aware that she defeated Yomi. Suddenly, she notices a black luxury car pulling up at high speed while being surrounded by Hebijo shinobi. Ikaruga tells the car to stop while a man in a suit comes out with a questionable expression. The man states how Ikaruga is a Hanzo student and how Homura is the only Hebijo elite left that hasn’t been defeated. The words filled Ikaruga with relief. The man thinks that it’s pathetic that he poured in a lot of money into the school and the results aren’t in his favor. Right when he said that, Ikaruga begins to feel anger building up within herself.

The man then asks Ikaruga what type of training she went through to become strong. Ikaruga then realizes that the man must be a Hebijo investor while also telling him that the thoughts of friends, schools, master, and families that raised that are what makes them stronger. Ikaruga then clenches onto Hien and tells the guy that even the thoughts of the Hebijo shinobi helped made them stronger. The guy frowns about the fact that no money was involved. As Ikaruga points Hien towards the guy, the guy asks Ikaruga if she’s going to kill him. Ikaruga begins to believe that if she were to kill that particular investor, it might collapse the entire Hebijo organization, thus causing the struggle between good shinobi and evil shinobi to abate. However, Ikaruga lowers Hien and tells the man to leave as it’s a sacred place for shinobi to do battle. The man laughs as he gets back into the car and leaves.

Ikaruga’s mind then drifts back to thinking about Yomi as she now feels that if Hebijo disappeared, the last refuge for people like her would disappear. Katsuragi then shows up and meets with Ikaruga while asking if she’s alright. Ikaruga nods while also pointing out how Katsuragi is alright as well. The two then laugh at one another softly. Suddenly, Katsuragi notices Asuka from the distance as she’s heading for the castle keep. She’s dispatching her foes quickly as she’s heading for Homura directly. However, Asuka has a mountain worth of Hebijo shinobi to deal with before reaching Homura. With that said, both Katsuragi and Ikaruga quickly moved to where Asuka is while they take down the Hebijo shinobi that got in their way. They finally caught up to Asuka as they force themselves in between Asuka and the Hebijo shinobi she’s fight. They begin to fight them as both Katsuragi and Ikaruga tells Asuka to go on ahead. However, Asuka looks troubled as she watches Ikaruga and Katsuragi hold their grounds against the Hebijo shinobi. Ikaruga then realizes that it’s not Asuka’s way to rush in headlong, heedless of those left behind, meaning her heart is set on the exact opposite. Ikaruga then begins to understand that that might be the power of sword and shield. With that in mind, Ikaruga orders Asuka to go on ahead as the class representative while smiling. Asuka smiles back and understands as she tells Ikaruga to leave Homura to her. With that said, both Katsuragi and Ikaruga cut through the wall of Hebijo shinobi while Asuka uses the advantage to get through. Eventually, she reaches the castle keep where she’s now face to face with Homura.

Section 7: Path of the Shinobi
After Asuka defeats Orochi, its body begins to melt away, leaving nothing but its echoing death rattle. A strong wind picks up and the debris shines in the light of the evening sun. All signs of its malice and hatred has disappeared. Asuka stands atop the mountain of rubble, clutching the two Super-Secret Ninja Art Scrolls. Asuka says to herself that everything is over ash she lets out a huge sigh. She begins to feel that all of her energy is leaving her body. As she was about to collapse, she begins to feel warm hands supporting her. One of the hands were Katsuragi as she congratulates Asuka. The other hands were Ikaruga’s, Hibari’s, and Yagyū’s. Feeling overjoyed about seeing her friends in one piece, strength returns to Asuka’s body. Ikaruga anxiously examines Asuka’s body to see if she’s alright, but Asuka insists that she’s alright. However, Katsuragi didn’t buy it and begins to feel up on Asuka. Asuka tells her to stop while Hibari tells Katsuragi to wait until she has more energy before she can sexually harass her, which Yagyū also agrees to. However Asuka states that she rather she didn’t wait until later. With that said, everyone begins to laugh. Despite how messed up everyone looks, they all still smile and laugh.


Hanzo Ending CG (SKB)

Suddenly, they all see similar figures across the mountain of rubble. They couldn’t see clearly due to the morning sun, but they know that the four figures are Homura and the others. Homura and the others looked at them as they then turn around and walk away. Hibari begins to chase after Haruka, but Asuka stops her by grabbing her shoulder and telling her to just let them go, despite Hibari crying in joy. Asuka then tells her that she’s sure she’ll see them again at some point. As they watched Homura and the others get farther away, Ikaruga wonders if it’s okay to let them go, but Asuka states that they’re not the enemy and that when they meet, it’ll be when they’re all shinobi. Ikaruga smiles at Asuka’s statement. Asuka then takes a deep breath and then shouts out to Homura saying that she will continue getting stronger and how they’ll meet again. She then wonders if Homura heard her, but then she saw Homura raising her right hand as a sign of acknowledgement. With that said, Asuka tells the others that it’s time for all of them to go back home to Hanzo Academy which everyone agrees to. They then come together smiling and begin walking. Their bodies feel heavier than lead, but their hearts feel light as feathers. The glare of the sunrise gently warms their backs while their shadows extend out before them to Hanzo Academy as if nothing is blocking their way. As Asuka looks down at those shadows, she begins to wonder if this the Path of the Shinobi.

Portrayal Chapter

Katsuragi CG (SK2)

It is the night of the raid on Hebijo Clandestine Girl Academy to get back the Super-Secret Ninja Scroll. As the Hanzō group started gathering around in the thicket next to the main gate, Asuka is happened to see that all of her comrades have arrived. Katsuragi then jokes around about Asuka leading her to the enemies boobs for groping. However, Ikaruga spoke and told Katsuragi to focus due to the situation at stake at the moment. Then, Katsuragi replied back to Ikaruga, realizing how serious, nervous, and stiff she is. She then suggested to help Ikaruga relax by smoothing out the rough spots, starting with her boobs. As Ikaruga demanded Katsuragi to stop. Hibari states how she's starting to get nervous herself. Yagyu then insists on helping Hibari out instead of Katsuragi for her own sake.

Asuka was happy to see how her own comrades are still the same as always, even though they're about the face their final battles with Homura and co.. Her smile then turned into a frown as Ikaruga asked Asuka what's wrong. Asuka explained that while it's nice to see everyone laughing and enjoying themselves, she's wonders what type of justice is she referring to whenever she says "For justice's sake, I will not abide you," before going into battle. She personally believes that it means fighting to protect everyone's happiness. Ikaruga and Hibari agreed. With that said, Asuka told everyone that it's time to go and get their Super-Secret Ninja Scroll back while showing Homura and co. what a good shinobi can do. She then wished everyone good luck and had everyone promise to come back alive. Afterwards, the team separated and went on their own to their opponents.

At Katsuragi's location, she fought her way through waves of enemies until she came across Hikage. When she did, she was already ready to fight Hikage. Hikage realized how excited Katsuragi is. Katsuragi then states how she always love a good fight while explaining the things she sees during one. However, Hikage comments on how Katsuragi is going to be disappointed by this particular fight. Katsuragi didn't believe it and asked Hikage to fight her with all of her might while she does the same. Hiakge wished she understood Katsuragi's passion while stating how it doesn't matter since she's not capable of caring.

Katsuragi did her best to explain her passion by saying how her own parents are renegades. Hikage was surprised to see how casually Katsuragi said that while stating that in general, people don't talk so casually about serious issues. Katsuragi nodded that it is a serious matter since if her parents are caught, they would be executed. She then states that if she becomes a great shinobi, she'll be able to gain a good amount of respect that would allow her parents to be pardoned.

Katsuragi then asked Hikage if she understood why she can't allow herself to lose to her. Hikage responded with a nod and states that if she was capable of pity, she would have let Katsuragi win. Katsuragi didn't need the pity either way. She then told Katsuragi that she'll help Hikage learn about feelings today by having herself beat her in a fight. Hikage almost started feeling the anticipation as the two began their fight.

During the fight, Katsuragi states how she would like to talk with her fists instead of her mouth. However, Hikage replied that it's impossible to literally do so. Katsuragi insisted that it is possible while explaining how punching is the universal language. Hikage understood but corrected Katsuragi on how she only kicks while also stating that the two of them don't have anything to talk about. She then went on how good's good and evil's evil should be enough. Katsuragi states that it's not all cut and dry in the end.

After the fight, Katsuragi was happy to be victorious while Hikage realized she lost. Katsuragi then asked Hikage if she feels bad about losing, but Hikage didn't feel anything at all. Katsuragi wondered about that, but Hikage then explained how she doesn't feel bad, but her heart is still pounding from the fight. She wondered if that's what emotions are while asking if Katsuragi is going to kill her now. Katsuragi wondered again whike Hikage explained that it's her job as a good shinobi to kill the evil shinobi to finish the job. However, Katsuragi decided that she won't kill Hikage. She then asked if it's possible for good and evil to change depending on your point of view. She hen made an example with her parents by saying how even though her parents are renegades, they're not evil.

Katsuragi believes that there has to be a reason behind why her parents did what they did that caused them to become renegades. Hikage nodded while stating how she wouldn't be at Hebijo if she didn't think she was on the right side. Katsuragi the commented on how the two are just fighting all because they're good and evil respectively. Hikage then states that that's how it works since it's destiny. She then told Katsuragi to go on since Katsuragi won the fight. Katsuragi understood but then told Hikage one other thing; No matter how many times the two fight one another, Katsuragi won't kill Hikage.

As Asuka fight Orochi, Katsuragi and the rest of the Hanzō group encourages her to keep on fighting and protect their happiness, which help gave Asuka the strength to defeat Orochi.

After Homura took down Dogen, Asuka tried to reach for her, but she was blocked off. As the other Hanzō group complimented Asuka on her achievement, Asuka wondered if Homura and the other Hebijo members are okay. Yagyu states how they won't die that easily, but more importantly, they won the battle. Asuka and the others understood that. Asuka then states how it's the path she chose to walk while wondering if she was a good enough sword and shield for everyone.

Hanzo Academy CG (SK2)

After knowing that Homura and co. are okay, Katsuragi and the rest of the Hanzō group called Asuka over. Asuka ran to them as they all embraced one another. She then states that what she wants to protect the most are her dearest friends.

Naraku Chapter

Hanzo Academy CG (SK2) 2

On the train ride to Kyoto, Katsuragi and co. are busy enjoying themselves while playing cards when suddenly, Ikaruga thought she heard voices coming from the rooftop. Katsuragi comments on how it's must be her imagination while stating how even shinobi aren't that insane to ride trains on the roof. However, Asuka thinks that someone like Homura would do something like that. Back on the roof of the train, Homura suddenly sneezed and feels that someone is talking about her behind her back.

Hanzo Academy CG (SK2) 3 (Full)

As the Hanzō group got off the train and started sight seeing, Asuka comments on the fact that their shinobi school gets field trips in general. Kiriya then explains how when it's time to work, they have to work, but when it's time to play, they can play. Variety is imperative according to him. Asuka then states how the Yatsubashi the groups' eating is tasty. They all agreed while Yagyu is also enjoying her senmaizuke. Katsuragi sighed as she states how they should all be appreciating Kyoto a bit more. Ikaruga spoke up as she jokes about Katsuragi "appreciating" by "fondling apprentice geisha." Katsuragi then corrects Ikaruga by saying that she didn't fondled, she groped.

Enter 10 Yoma Generals (SK2)

Ikaruga just shook her head when suddenly, two strangers appeared right in front of the group looking exhausted and badly hurt. The child states that should run anymore as she constantly pants. Quickly, Asuka and Ikaruga asked if the two strangers are alright. Suddenly, Hibari and the others sensed a shinobi barrier nearby. However, Ikaruga doesn't sense any shinobi nearby. Yagyu then started sensing something coming. Suddenly, a group of 10 human-shaped yoma appeared right before them. Quickly, Asuka insisted that they should helped the two strangers from the yoma. However, Kiriya states that they can't fight a yoma without Academy orders. However, Asuka still insists on helping them regardless.

Katsuragi started demanding Kiriya to let them help the two strangers since it's an emergency. Suddenly, the hooded stranger realized that Asuka and co. are good shinobi. Kiriya then asked her how she figured and then asked who she was. The hooded stranger calls herself Naraku, a guardian of the Reincarnation Sphere. Kiriya wondered what the Reincarnation Sphere was while Ikaruga insisted that they should quickly evacuate Naraku and he child as soon as possible while leaving her and Katsuragi behind to take care of the current area. Hibari becomes a little worried about both Katsuragi and Ikaruga fighting yoma. However, Katsuragi reassured that Ikaruga and herself together can take on anyone, even yoma. Ikaruga then plead Kiriya to let her and Katsuragi take care of the area.

Kiriya allowed it as she told the two to be extremely careful since they never fought yoma before. Afterwards, everyone left while Katsuragi and Ikaruga stayed behind to deal with yoma.

As the pair are fighting the yoma, Katsuragi realized how it's been a while since they fought together like this. The last time was during both of their first year. Ikaruga agreed as she realized as well. She then states how the two use to fight one another a bit during that time while Katsuragi agreed as she laughed. Ikaruga feels that Katsuragi is now the best partner she could have while Katsuragi agreed on that as well. She then told Katsuragi that they should show everyone their teamwork.

After the fight, Ikaruga demanded the yoma to state their business and why are they after Naraku and the child. The Yoma didn't say anything as they quickly jumped away. Katsuragi wondered if they're heading after Asuka and the others. Both Ikaruga and Katsuragi then started chasing after them. As they moved, Katsuragi wondered why those yoma had movements similar to something she seen before.

At some point, Katsuragi meets up with Hikage once again. Katsuragi realized how Hikage got more string in her step now. Hikage wonders as she states that since she's isn't tied down to anything now, she's free to do what she wants now. Katsurasgi then asked if it's rough being a renegade now. Hikage nodded while stating that it's the path she chose. Katsuragi started to feel jealous since they're stuck with mission, even the ones she doesn't think is right to do, such as what they're doing now, which capturing both Naraku and the child. Suddenly, Naraku and the chld appeared right before them. The child was happy to see more pawns to help them slay the yoma. Katsuragi didn't understand what she meant by that, but then Hikage ordered both Katsuragi and Hikage to engage the yoma and wipe them out when they arrive while explaining to them that the type they're fighting are called "yoma generals" as they possess power from shinobi.

Hikage thought that dealing with those would be a pain in the ass. However, regardless of what her opponent is, Katsuragi will take on whatever it is no matter what. She then told both Naraku and the child that she has to capture the two of them sadly. Suddenly, Hikae started sensing a strong yoma presence nearby. Afterwards, the Yoma appeared right in front of them. As the two got ready, Katsuragi asked if Hikage was ready for battle. Hikage nodded as the two engaged.

As they are fight, Katsuragi realized that if they defeat them, they don't have a choice but to capture both Naraku and the child. Not paying attention, Hikage states that she never seen the Golden Pavilion before. Katsuragi asked if Hikage was listening to her. However, Hikage then states that she hasn't jumped off the Kiyomizu stage either. Feeling a bit annoyed, Katsuragi responded by saying how Hikage wouldn't be alive if she did. She then began to wonder what up with Hikage as the starts thinking that talking to her makes hersefl feel stupid for worrying. Hikage was glad to hear it while stating how Katsuragi having a worried look doesn't suit her at all.

After the fight, Katsuragi was glad to get a good amount of feedback from the yoma general. Naruka believed that the thrashing was good enough to subdue the yoma general while the child prepared to devour it. Katsuragi tried to stop her but the child insisted that she was just going to finish it off. As the child began to finish the yoma-general off, Katsuragi wonders what kind of child crushes a yoma and laughs about it. Hikage followed up by saying that it's not normal. After the child finished destroying the yoma-general, she began to search for something. Suddenly, she found a red orb from within the corpse. Katsuragi wondered what kind of red orb it is. Hikage then states how those never came out of the other types of yoma. Suddenly, the child began to devour the red orb. While Katsuragi was disgusted by what she just saw, the child was happy as she states that her power is starting to return. Afterwards, Naraku insisted that her and the child must move on to the next red orb. As the two left, Katsuragi tried to stop them, but it was too late.

Kagura Chapter
As both Katsuragi and Ikaruga are looking for Kagura, the name of the child, Katsuragi wondered why they have to go after and kill her. Suddenly, both Yomi and Hikage confronted the two of them. Yomi stated how Homura explained to her and the others about how the Hanzō group were ordered to kill Kagura. Ikaruga nodded while Hikage asked if Kagura did something bad. Katsuragi said no as far as they know. Feeling annoyed, Yomi states how their good shinobi justice is just a bunch of self-serving, self-righteous judgement. Ikaruga tried to reason with Yomi, but Yomi quickly cut her off while saying how she's tired of listening to her. She thought Ikaruga was different from the rest, but she isn't, according to her.

Katsuragi states how the whole group isn't all on board with the plan, but shinobi orders are absolute. Hikage replied how Katsuragi isn't herself at all and how Katsuragi usually follows her conscience, not her orders. Katsuragi states how free she is by how she grabs all the boobs in sight whenever she feels like it. Ikaruga commented on how boobs doesn't equal freedom. Yomi then decided to challenge Ikaruga to a match to help straightened out her warped sense of justice. Ikaruga realized that reasoning with Yomi won't work, so she accepted the challenge, along with Katsuragi.

After the fight, Yomi tells Ikaruga how a good shinobi should act without doubts or regrets while also stating how her conviction is what inspires Yomi and the others to grow stronger themselves. Katsuragi then intervened and stated how they're all still sorting things out on what to do with Kagura. She continued by saying how clashing all-out is a good way to understand one another. By fighting Kagura, they might be able to understand her as well. Yomi questioned if that's what the good shinobi council had in mind besides wanting Kagura dead. Hikage then states again how everyone treats all renegades as evil but Katsuragi knows better while they don't. Katsuragi nodded while Hikage continues by saying how it's the same thing with this situation how Kagura is the evil one according to the council, but in the end, she might not be.

Whike Ikaruga agreed with Hikage's point, they still trust the council's judgement, which is why they're following the orders in the first place. Yomi asked why they trust them so much while Ikaruga quickly responded by asking her why she shouldn't trust and risk her life for an organization she believes in. Sadly, Yomi states how they're at an impasse. Katsuragi then told Ikaruga that it's time to continue searching for Kagura. As the two left, Yomi wonders why the Hanzō executives are scared of Kagura to begin with.

Back at the hotel, the Hanzō group came together and started to report on the mission so far. Hibari states that it's still incomplete while Kiriya told them to continue with the mission until they succeed. Hibari then asked why they were ordered to kill Kagura to begin with. Kiriya realized how Asuka and co. feel guilty about doing it without knowing the reason on why they have to and asked if that's it. Hibari nodded but then Kiriya raised his voice by yelling out how they shouldn't be naive and then asked if they don't know what shinobi missions are. He then explains how shinobi missions weigh deeply on the heart and how that's the nature of their work in the shadows, whether they're good or evil.

He continues to say how the world of shinobi isn't pretty and that they must stain their hands at times since it's part of the world Asuka and co. aspired for. The group nodded while Hibari apologized as she wondered that she must be getting soft and spoiled. Asuka followed up by saying how she talked back to Homura about it and how she honestly had doubts about Kagura. Katsuragi then asked if Hibari is up for a round of training to help toughen up the soft heart of hers and to remind her on the reasons to become a shinobi. Hibari agreed as her and the rest began their training.

Afterwards, Katsuragi commented on how the training must have worked since she can feel her shinobi determination. Hibari then thanked Katsuragi while Ikaruga explained how this isn't going to be the last questionable mission they'll have to face, so they must train in not only strength and technique, but also in spirit. Katsuragi then states how there's a ritual just in case you're feeling unsure, which is getting your boobs groped. Ikaruga, begun to wonder if what Katsuragi meant to become a shinobi was actually just to grope boobs, but Katsuragi believes that it might be a reason as she begun targeting Ikaruga next.

At the hot spring, Katsuragi is just relaxing when suddenly, Hikage appeared, wondering what she's doing there. Katsuragi was surprised to Hikage while also almost getting scared. Hikage then states how Katsuragi's presence is too loud and how she just came in herself. Katsuragi understand and asked Hikage to relax in the bath together. Hikage questioned that but Katsuragi explained how hot springs are neutral zones for all types of shinobi. Hikage understood whike Katsuragi noticed how Hikage has a bottle of strawberry milk on her. However, she wondered why she has it now and if that's suppose to be for after the bath. Hikage then explains how she drinks before getting in. Katsuragi understood and decided that she should get some herself. Sadly, Hikage got the last bottle, which had Katsuragi questioning her, which then lead to a fight.

During the fight, Hikage wondered why Katsuragi is attacking her, even though they're in the neutral zone. Katsuragi stated that it is if it's about good and evil shinobi. However, it isn't when it's about the last strawberry milk. She then states that it'll be hers while Hikage states how she already drank out of it. Katsuragi didn't care about that since it's strawberry milk regardless. Hikage was surprised about the conviction.

After the fight, Hikage admitted defeat, but she still won't allow Katsuragi to have the strawberry milk as she started finishing the rest of it. Katsuragi began to scream as she watched. Hikage commented on how she doesn't like leaving things behind. That caused Katsuragi to go into a slight depression while also screaming about what she's supposed to drink after the bath. Hikage apologized and told her that the only thing left is the Kyoto-exclusive Uji green tea milk. Katsuragi was surprised to hear that as she decided to go ahead and buy a bottle. Hikage tried to tell her that she forgot her clothes, but then she figured that it's not going to make a difference to her.

Deep Crimson Chapter
As Kiriya gathered both Asuka's and Homura's group together at the hotel, he realized how they are the next generation of shinobi that could surpass the old shinobi techniques and traditions while also becoming Hinin, the highest shinobi rank in the records book. He then started explaining to the group the true purpose of the current mission as he believed that the group are more than capable of finding the answer about whether they should eliminate Kagura or not.

He explains how Kagura is a unique being who reincarnates repeatedly, solely to eradicate the yoma. Records goes back as far as 900 years. Past shinobi treated her with fear and with envy, since she disposed yoma so easily. As a unique being compare to human, she has her own way of growing. Kagura is born as a small girl from a device known as the Reincarnation Sphere. She grows by eating red orbs, which contains yoma's life force. After she destroys a certain number of yoma in her awakened state, her body crumbles as she returns to the Reincarnation Sphere. Every 100 years, the cycle repeats itself as long as there's yoma to destroy. However, during the whole cycle, she's not completely alone.

There are people who lived and die protecting her. They are known as the Goshin clan. In her childlike state, she can't utilize her true powers, so a guide that goes by the name of "Naraku" takes on the role as her guardian, until she's full awakened. Naraku's final purpose is to recover the Reincarnation Sphere in the end. The reason why the good shinobi council wants Kagura eliminated is when Kagura returns to the Reincarnation Sphere, it produces an immeasurable amount of heat and levels the surrounding area. In this case, if she returns to the Reincarnation Sphere in Kyoto, it will cause Kyoto to be leveled, wiping it off the map.

After finishing the explanation, Asuka raised her hand and states that she wants to save Kagura and stop her from being forced to return to the Reincarnation Sphere since it's too sad to have her do so. The other nine nod at what Asuka said. Ikaruga wondered how to do so, but Asuka then suggests that they just have to simply stop her from destroying the yoma. Homura then realized that all they have to do is destroy the yoma themselves before Kagura does.

To himself, Kiriya believes how adults are too stubborn as they think hard. Because of that, they had to weigh a young woman's life against the fate of a city. However, his own students are different as they believe that they can save anyone that needs to be saved and they'll risk their entire life to do it. Asuka then realized that what they're about to do will go against the orders of the council however. But Kiriya insists that they can do what they want to do while he takes responsibility, even if it means losing all status as a shinobi.

Suddenly, Hanzō's voice appeared in the room. Everyone noticed him on the sofa relaxing. No one was able to detect his presence until now. Asuka was surprised to see Hanzō in Kyoto, whike Hanzō states that just because he's retired, doesn't mean he's idle. He then told all 10 students that if they want to take care of the yoma in Kyoto, they'll need extra training. He then told Kiriya that he'll be borrowing them for a bit as he'll show them two perfect trainers that he brought for Tokyo to help train them. Just before Hanzō and the 10 students left, he thanked Kiriya for taking care of Asuka.

Outside, Daidouji, one of the two perfect trainers Hanzō brought with him, decided to train both Katsuragi and Ikaruga at the same time after helping Rin, the other perfect trainer, helped out both Asuka and Homura first. Katsuragi and Ikaruga were surprised to see Daidouji while Daidouji asked the two why she decided to train both of them at the same time. As the two thought about it, Daidouji decided that she'll fight them to see what lessons the two retained since their first exam back when they were still in their first year. As the two were confused about what she meant, they both then remembered that particular exam back then when they weren't close. Afterwards, the two prepared for battle against Daidouji.

During the fight, Ikaruga realized that Daidouji wants to see how much both herself and Katsuragi grown since then. Katsuragi nodded while stating how their teamwork is more cleaned than it was before.

After the fight, Daidouji was surprised to see how strong both Katsuragi's and Ikaruga's bond became. While Ikaruga thanked Daidouji, Daidouji began reminiscing about how both Katsuragi and Ikaruga couldn't properly cooperate with one another. Katsuragi realized that it's been two years since then. Afterwards, Daidouji tells the two of them to continue protecting their bonds while explaining how only those who forge bonds on their own can understand them.

After all of the training is finished, the group paired up with one another while Katsuragi paired up with Hikage. Both Katsuragi and Hikage found a yoma-general. Right before they started fighting it, something was bothering Katsuragi. Hikage tried asking her what's wrong, but Katsuragi was only giving out half-assed answers. He then remembered how Hikage told her to follow her conscience and not orders. However, she then realized something. As Hikage tried to figure out what she meant by that, Katsuragi shrugged it off and the two began to fight the yoma-general.

During the fight, Hikage asked Katsuragi again what's bothering her. However, Katsuragi told her that she wouldn't understand if she told her while saying that it's complicated. Hikage then suggests to not think too hard about it. Katsuragi agreed while saying how she just wants to protect the people she cares about. Because of that, she feels that she should kill her emotions. Hikage understands that Katsuragi's worried, but they have to worry about the fight at hand at the moment. Katsuragi agreed as the two continued to fight the yoma-general.

After the fight, she recalled of the last yoma-general dropping a red orb, so they just have to crush it. However, Katsuragi stopped Hikage from crushing it as she told her to give her the orb. Hikage did so, but then Katsuragi took off in a hurry. She then went after her.

After finally catching up, Hikage asked Katsuragi why she did what she did. Katsuragi reiterated what she said earlier that Hikage wouldn't understand, even if she told her. Hikage then suggeseted that the two should fight all out to be able to understand one another better, but Katsuragi continues to stand by what she said. Hikage reminded Katsuragi of someone telling Hikage that two people can understand one another if they clash. Katsuragi realized how Hikage sounded like herself for a second there while. Afterwards to two started the match.

During the fight, Katsuragi explained to Hikage how she wants to save her renegade parents, but it isn't easy because she can't save them if she doesn't follow orders. However, she doesn't want to kill Kagura either. But if does, she can open up the path that could lead her to saving her parents. All of the stress is making her feel conflicted.

After the fight, Hikage understood what Katsuragi is going through. Katsuragi knows that if she breaks the red orb, that's one more step of stopping Kagura. Katsuragi wants to walk her own path of the shinobi without having to follow orders, however, if she goes with the mission and follows orders, this would cause the council to be impress and pardon her parents. Once again, this makes her feel conflicted. Hikage suggests to Katsuragi to choose whichever path she wants and how her personal path and the path of the shinobi are two different things. She then states how she'll support her decision no matter what. Finally understanding, Katsuragi decided that she'll walk her own path while crushing the red orb. Hikage wondered if what Katsuragi did was really the right decision, but Katsuragi insists on not worrying about her while knowing how Hikage knew that Katsuragi would choose to crush the red orb in the end.

Hikage nodded while stating how even though she doesn't have feelings, she can still read Katsuragi's.

Later on, Katsuragi and Hikage continue their search for the yoma. As they're talking to one another, Katsuragi found out something about Hikage when she was fighting her. Hikage asked what, and Katsuragi states that Hikage actually does have feelings. Hikage denied it, but Katsuragi insists that she does while Hikage continues to deny it. However, Katsuragi states that Hikage had a big smile when the two of them did a powerful move together. Hikage started to feel a bit confused, but then she states how it's always fun fighting alongside with Katsuragi. She then questioned Katsuragi if she really did smile. Katsuragi nodded, which then lead to Hikage really wanting to see herself smile. As soon as she said that, the yoma appeared, but Katsuragi began to think of something to help.

During the fight, Katsuragi noticed how Hikage is smiling again. Hikage asked when, but Katsuragi insists that she's doing it right now. Hikage can hear it, but she can't see it. Katsuragi realized that, which then lead to Hikage asking her if she had some kind of mirror. Katsuragi said no while also explaining how she shouldn't find one in the middle of battle. Hikage continued to wonder on what she should do to be able to see herself smile. Suddenly, Katsuragi was able to come up with a good idea.

Hikage Smiling CG (SK2)

After the fight, Hikage felt like she was fighting with someone she knew. Katsuragi then said how she took a picture with her phone of Hikage smiling while fighting. As the two examined it, Hikage states how she just see's her normal expression on the photo. However, Katsuragi insists that she did see her smile in battle. Hikage then realized that she was smiling, but not on her face, in her heart instead. Hikage is happy to be able to fight with Katsuragi, but she's worried about how much time she has left to be with her while stating how she was originally an evil shinobi. Katsuragi understood that while knowing that the next time they fight, they'll be enemies. They both decided that when they do, they'll go all-out on one another.

Out of True Orochi CG (SK2) 1

After both Asuka and Homura defeated True Orochi and Kagura obliterated it, everyone that was taken by it reappeared. Asuka asked everyone if they're okay. They all stated that they were while trying to get the scum off their body. Afterwards, Homura told Asuka how that has to be the end of Dogen completely, but it's not over yet. They both turned and saw Kagura now fully awakened. As Naraku realized that, Kagura asked who she was. Naraku explained, which then caused Kagura to received a headache. She then states that she must go and eliminate all yoma. Little by little, her headache slowly becomes worse. She then remembered who Naraku was and how she won't forget her. She then told her that she'll follow her on the hunt for the yoma. Naraku understood.

DLC

Deep Waist

Hot Spring CG (SK2)

After the long battle, the ten students decided to bring both Naraku and Kagura to the hot spring to relax. Kagura was enjoying herself quite a bit, even though it was her first time. Suddenly, Asuka recalled that one time Kagura appeared in the same bath both Asuka and Homura were in. Homura then stated how Kagura was coming out of the water while moaning like a ghost, which caused both Asuka and Homura to freak out for a minute. Kagura apologized about what happened as she relax some more. Either way, Asuka was happy to see both Naraku and Kagura are enjoying themselves, especially right after that battle. Hikage agreed as she relaxes in the bath as well. However, Ikaruga notices how since there's a lot of people in the bath at the moment, it's hard not to stare at one another.

With that said, Haruka thought it was a good time to finally see how much everyone "grown." As she began tickling Hibari, Yagyu started getting annoyed by it. Haruka then started teasing Yagyu about how she "didn't" poke Hibari's chest just now, which angered Yagyu even more. Suddenly, Naraku started whiffing. Kagura asked her what's wrong but Naraku replied that it was nothing. However, Katsuragi believes that it was definitely something as she laughs. She then guessed that Naraku was devouring Kagura's naked body with her eyes, which caused Naraku to feel embarrassed. Kagura then asked Naraku if she wants to taste her, even though she believes she doesn't taste good.

Naraku quickly denied the offer while stating how it's her first time seeing Kagura baring her maturity. Katsuragi then intervened as she asked Naraku if her appearance enticed her appetite as well. However, Naraku quickly denied Katsuragi's statement. Kagura understood what Naraku really wanted as she allowed her permission to stare at her body as long as she wants. Katsuragi decided to take that offer as well, but Ikaruga pulled her back for her own good. However, Katsuragi tried to reason with Ikaruga that Kagura gave the "OK", but Ikaruga still insists that she should just back off, sit back, and enjoy the hot spring. Katsuragi then asked permission from Kagura if she can stare at her body as well just to make sure. Sadly, Kagura denied her permission due to how insistent Katsuragi was being.

As Haruka chuckled to herself about the fact that Kagura learned the meaning of shame, Katsuragi was shocked about her opportunity disappeared on her. On the bright side though, Katsuragi noticed how hot Kagura can be when she's shameful. Yagyu just sighed about the fact that there's no medication for what wrong with Katsuragi. Kagura then stated how she is interested in seeing more naked bodies since the only one she saw throughout her life was just Naraku's. She continued on by saying how everyone's different. Naraku agreed while saying how everyone is built differently inside and outside. Kagura then complimented on Yomi's body with how soft it is. Yomi was surprised to hear that while Kagura started describing Yomi's body and how she wants to touch her. This caused Yomi to start blushing and feeling embarrassed.

Kagura then turned to Mirai and realized how simple her body is compare to Yomi's. The statement caused Mirai to get angry at Kagura while Kagura continues by describing how Mirai's body doesn't have anything at all. Mirai tried to reason with Kagura by showing her what she has on her body. Kagura couldn't tell where so she asked Naraku for some assistance. However, Naraku couldn't see anything as well. Mirai continues to show off her body by now pointing towards her chest. Kagura then thinks that she does see something now. Naraku suggested that she should cross her eyes to be able to see something come together. Mirai insisted that it's not a Magic Eye Picture while Kagura doesn't understand why Mirai is so irritated.

Suddenly, Homura intervened and told them to leave it at there. She then states how Mirai's working hard to be herself and that they should show a little support for her. Kagura didn't fully understand, but she wished Mirai good luck while telling her that she'll do what she can to help her. Sadly, it only made Mirai more irritated as she denied Kagura's help. Hikage then told Mirai to relax while telling her that Kagura isn't trying to make her feel bad. Haruka agreed but she also agreed about the fact that there's not much on Mirai. However, Yomi tried cheering Mirai up by reminding her about the chant, "Supply and demand," she taught her to calm down and the fact that Mirai has her own set of charms. Still feeling annoyed, Mirai tried chanting "Supply and demand", but it only made her more exhausted as she suggested that she'll get out of the bath now.

Kyoto Feast CG (SK2)

Later on, the 9 students except for Mirai are enjoying their feast. As they were eating, they realized that Mirai, Kagura, and Naraku aren't around. However, they feel that they're most likely alright. With that said, they continued eating. In the distance behind the door, Mirai was watching the others eat while chuckling to herself. She's looking forward to when the effects of the secret ingredient she put in the food starts happening. Suddenly, everyone's body digressed into a chibi form.

As Hikage wondered what they should all do, Haruka suggested that they should stat trying to figure out a way to reverse the effect. However, Katsuragi actually liked her new chibi look. Hikage asked why but Katsuragi responded by saying how she can now get away with groping people now that she's a kid. Hikage now thinks that we now have a bad, dangerous seed in the area. However, Yagyu agreed about the fact that they don't have to find a way to change back. Katsuragi was surprised to see how Yagyu is on her side for once. However, Hibari wondered if it'll be too hard to live the way they are now. But Yagyu didn't mind because of how cute Hibari is and how she'll take care of her regardless. Sadly, that statement only made Hibari feel nervous. As Yagyu began to admire Hibari's cuteness, Haruka only sighed about how predictable that was.

Katsuragi then suggested that the ones that want to change back and go right ahead while the ones that doesn't want to can stay the way they are. Yagyu agreed as she states that she won't let Hibari change back. However, Hikage states that she can't let Katsuragi stay the way she is. Katsuragi asked why but Hikage didn't understand herself, although she states how her soul is screaming to stop her. Hibari tried to reason with Yagyu, but Yagyu denied and just wants a small Yagyu. However, Hibari states how much of a blockhead Yagyu is being right now as she demands the fact that she wants to change back.

Haruka realized that reasoning with both Katsuragi and Yagyu isn't going to work, so she has no choice but to force them to listen. Hibari apologized to Haruka while Yagyu asked Katsuragi to stand by her side for their dreams. Hikage suggested to Haruka that they should team up to take down both Katsuragi and Yagyu. Haruka agreed while Hibari stand back and let the four fight it out.

Changing Back to Normal Size CG (SK2)

After the fight, Yagyu realized something is rising up from within her. She started to puking a little when suddenly, she threw up a Kagura red orb as she transformed back to her regular size. Haruka asked Yagyu if she was alright. Yagyu nodded while Hibari was happy to see Yagyu back to her normal size. Yagyu wondered how as Haruka noticed the Kagura red orb on Yagyu's hand. Hibari wondered why one of the Kagura red orbs came out out Yagyu while Katsuragi, Homura, and Yomi began puking out Kagura red orbs themselves. Homura realized that the Kagura red orbs must have been the cause of the problem, but she wondered how the orb got inside her to begin with. Yomi felt that something was off about this. Meanwhile, Katsuragi was moping about how her ambitions to grope people as a chibi is gone, but then she realized that if she eats the orb again, she could transform back into a chibi.

However, Hikage quickly took the orb away from Katsuragi while Katsuragi began pleading for the orb back. Back on topic, Ikaruga wondered how the orbs got inside their bodies while Asuka thinks that it could be related to Kagura since they haven't seen her in a while. Homura figured that something might have happened to her and Naraku. Yomi then started wondering if Mirai is alright as well.

Mirai's Apology CG (SK2)

After the talk between Mirai and Daidouji, Asuka wonders how she and the rest that are still chibi are going to turn back to normal without having to rely on puking. She knows that Hanzō told her that she'll take care of it, but he hasn't come back yet. Homura suggested what if she tickled her. Asuka questioned her as she began to tickle Asuka. As she begs Homura to stopped, Mirai walked into the room. Yomi was so happy to see tha Mirai was alright. Homura didn't noticed Mirai as she continued to tickle Asuka. However, Asuka told Homura that Mirai came back. Mirai then started to apologize to everyone about how she caused the whole situation. Homura apologized as well since she feels that she's responsible for Mirai. Haruka stated how she'll punish Mirai severely later, but she wants everyone else to forgive her. Both Hikage and Yomi then started to apologize as well for not noticing the problem sooner. Hibari didn't mind since she knows how it feels to just do what you feel is right. Everyone else started to forgive Mirai. Mirai thanked everyone while Katsuragi began to wonder how exactly can the rest change back to normal again.

Suddenly, Hanzō, Kagura, and Naraku appeared and told them not to worry while Mirai apologized to them as well. Narauku had no idea what would have happened if the situation continued, but she accepted Mirai's apology regardless, as did Kagura, but now Mirai owes her some candy. Homura asked again if what they meant by "no worries" mean that they can change the rest back to normal. Hanzō nodded as he told Naraku to show them the way by hiting them on the back to cause them to spit out the Kagura red orbs.

Hipster

Vs Yomi - Hipster (SK2)

As the girls gathered around, reiterates about the fact that the city in grave danger while Ikaruga states how kids are hiding, adults are running around naked, and how the city is going to hell at this rate. Hibari started feeling scared going outside now, but Yagyu suggested that she'll hold her hand to help make her feel more calm. Feeling angry, Katsuragi hated how HEBIJO used Explosive Bust Force for evil, causing the world to go crazy. With that said, Asuka was determined to simply take down HEBIJO regardless, which shocked everyone. She understands the situation but she feels that they have a chance at beating HEBIJO. She then started explaining how professor Hanzō crystallized EBF into a new kind of power supply, called Bustnuda-X, which grants the Hanzō group the ability to fly.

Katsuragi understood and stated how she has to prepare herself now. Asuka questioned Katsuragi while Katsuragi explains how she can't let her underclassmen fly out there on their own. As the group decided that they'll all go together, Yomi showed up and saw how cheap their melodrama was, even cheaper than bean sprouts. She then went on by saying how both rich and poor desire milk and how HEBIJO will provide them with such with their breasts. Hibari believed that that doesn't makes sense while Yagyu helped her calm down by saying how Yomi is just speaking gibberish. Yomi then stated how after their titan breasts, there will be titan sprouts, causing small breasts to be obsolete. Ikaruga denied that while Yomi told them to defeat all five of us to prove themselves right.

With that said, the Hanzō group made their move as they went after HEBIJO, starting with Yomi.

Vs Hikage - Hipster (SK2)

After defeating Yomi, Katsuragi asked the others what they think about HEBIJO's way of thinking about titan bust supremacism. Ikaruga believes that it's an unconscionable ideology while Hibari believes that just because you call something "titan" doesn't mean it's better. However Yagyu doesn't mind a titan Hibari. With that said, Asuka decided that they should all stamp out titan bust supremacism. However, Katsuragi started having a bit of doubt about it. She wondered if HEBIJO is really wrong about their ideology. Ikaruga wondered what she meant by that while Katsuragi explains how she can see the attraction of the size and texture of a titan bust. As the others questioned Katsuragi some more, she then stated that it's complicated to explain. She then started going on about how size is justice and how great it is to be big.

Suddenly, Ikaruga slapped Katsuragi to snap her out of it while explaining how all breasts have their values, so they can't be replaced. Katsuragi just remembered that as she started freaking out. Now, Katsuragi's eyes are finally wide open as she apologized for losing sight of what she believed in. She then asked one of them to grab her boobs to prove that she's okay now. Yagyu passed but Hibari started squeezing them, which then had Yagyu telling her to stop. The groping helped Katsuragi feel energized when suddenly, Hikage appeared right before them.

Hikage asked them which is a better deal, a regular dish or a super dish. Asuka answered with super dish but Katsuragi quickly told Asuka to stop what she's doing by hitting her, causing Asuka to snap out of it. She then tried telling Asuka not to fall for Hikage's trick on converting her to titan bust supremacism. Asuka realized that as she thanked Katsuragi. Hikage then told them not to overthink it and asked again. Ikaruga then asked which choice is the simple one while HIbari and Yagyu states how they're fine with the regular size.

Afterwards, Hikage sighed as she finds fighting annoying, so she told them that she'll be waiting for them in the sky. With that said, the Hanzō group began to go after Hikage.

Vs Mirai - Hipster (SK2)

After taking down Hikage, Ikaruga was in deep thought while Hibari asked her what's wrong. She states how it's nothing, but Yagyu can tell she's thinking about something, so she told her to tell them. Ikaruga then told them about how she's worried about her brother, Murasame. At first Katsuragi didn't think that they would transform him into a giant since he's a guy, but then she asked Ikaruga if she's worried about to give him a titan "private". Quickly, Ikaruga denied that as she then wondered what would happen to him if she dies in battle. Katsuragi understood while Yagyu states how Murasame resents Ikaruga in general, but in actuality, he as a serious sister complex. Ikaruga then stated how he abandoned all hope and is now running around nude as they speak.

They then figured that if Ikaruga isn't around to watch over Murasame, it would be a problem. Katsuragi then figured that the real problem is actually Ikaruga herself while explaining how even though Murasame has a sister complex, Ikaruga have a brother complex as well. Feeling shocked and embarrassed, Ikaruga denied the fact, but then she remembered a few moments where it showed. Yagyu then suggested Ikaruga to go home if she's going to be worried about Mursame throughout the battles, causing her to be a burden to the group. Katsuragi agreed when suddenly, Ikaruga burst into tears while Mirai appeared right before them while hearing about the crying and the big bra crap.

Yagyu told Mirai that she misheard the last part while Mirai stopped caring since it didn't matter anymore. She then went on how they're now in the age of the titan bust, while Yagyu replied by stating how Mirai's cup size didn't even change after becoming huge. Asuka followed up by saying how it's neither titanic nor explosive. Right before Hibari followed up by saying how flat it was, Mirai threatened to kill all of them if they continued saying such things while also saying how her cup size will grow eventually and those that disagrees will die.

Yagyu understood but she decided to retort instead. Mirai dared them to try and do so as the Hanzō group went after her.

Vs Homura - Hipster (SK2)

After defeating Mirai, Yagyu started laughing for some reason. The others asked why while Yagyu started feeling empowered by the Bustnuda-X. She then realized that she has to take care of HEBIJO first and then the world. Those who oppose her and the others would be killed. Ikaruga then began to convince Yagyu to step away from the dark side. Suddenly, Yagyu started getting a massive headache while Asuka starts thinking that maybe Yagyu is losing control of herself. Hibari then wondered what they should do to help Yagyu while Ikaruga wondered if the effect of the Bustnuda-X can happen to the rest of them as well. Suddenly, Yagyu noticed how her right eye is aching black and how her tentacles are telling her to defeat them.

Quickly, Asuka begun to sing about breasts, which helped Yagyu come back to her senses. As Yagyu apologized for what she did, Asuka told her that it was alright since the important this, she came back to them while also saying how music can work wonders to a person's heart. Suddenly, Homura appeared before them while singing about meat. She then noticed the Hanzō group and was happy to finally see them. Asuka was surprised to see how much Homura improved with her sonic attack, but Homura didn't understand what she was talking about while also saying how she was just practicing her singing. She then realized how Asuka just told her how she can't sing well, which Asuka admitted.

The blunt response angered Homura as she prepared to go and kill the Hanzō group while also serenading them. She then demanded all of them to come after her. With that said, the Hanzō group went after Homura.

Vs Haruka - Hipster (SK2)

After taking down Homura, they realized that they have one more opponent to fight, which is the mastermind herself. By defeating her, the world will be saved. Suddenly, Haruka showed up beforehand while stating how what they're going to do isn't going to happen. She then realized how angry the Hanzō group look while also realizing how she might have got carried away. Ikaruga then stated how her getting carried away is unforgivable. Haruka sarcastically started feeling scared while realizing that she can't please everyone. Feeling angry, Katsuragi told Haruka how much pain she caused on the Earth. Haruka asked why she asked that even though she was having fun, which is what they said and how that's all that matters. Despite all that's been said, Hibari doesn't believe that Haruka is a bad person. Yagyu questioned what she meant but Hibari believes there's a truth behind what she's trying to do. Katsuragi started noticing it herself.

Katsuragi then figured that what Haruka is trying to do is make a world where everyone doesn't fight over the size of their boobs. Haruka didn't say a word to that statement but Hibari states how it all makes sense if everybody becomes titan bust. However, if everyone becomes one, everyone will lose their charms. Asuka then states that since everyone is different, everyone has their own charms.

Haruka was impressed with how Hibari and the others figured out her true motive, but she still won't listen to those that oppose titan bust supremacism. She then told them defeat her by force in order to stop her. With that said, the Hanzō group went after Haruka for the final battle.

After the fight, Haruka reverted back to normal size. She stated how they were right about boobs being wonderful because they come in different shapes while also admitting that she was wrong about everything. However, Asuka disagreed while Ikaruga explained how boobs can bring peace and prevent war, so they should foster world peace through mutual appreciattion of boobs. Haruka was happy to hear that, but she states how she can't fly anymore as she starts descending to the ground.

Suddenly, Homura caught Haruka right before she shit the ground while saying how she can't have Haruka die because of how important she is to the HEBIJO group. Haruka thanked Homura for saving her while Homura told Asuka that they won't work together with them. She then explained how they'll come up with a new type of titan. Asuka asked what type, leaving Homura to think for a minute, until she decided on titan beef or titan beef stew. Asuka asked again what Homura is planning exactly, but Homura dodged the question by saying how their rivalry continues. With that said, Homura flew off with Haruka.

With the mission finally completed, the Hanzō group flew off to the Hot Springs to relax and enjoy themselves.
