A Word Before We Get Down To The Real Talk:
-------------------------------------------
  This F.A.Q. is only for the Endings and so. So if anybody have anything to
add, please do so. Otherwise... do not bother.

======================================================

-----
Name: Kaede
-----

-------
Ending:
-------
Kagami: Foolish human. You'll destroy yourselves! O, to lose to you! But in
defeating me, you shame my existence! I rot with my plan. And return to the
abyss! Again... my art will return!

  Kagami disappears...

Blue Dragon: Awaken! Successor to the Blue Dragon! You will be my strength...
do not be afraid. The following ages... will give new power! Come. Do not fear
my power!
Kaede: The blue dragon's power... the power within me... when using this
power... I am no longer myself. I feel like i'm... gyah. O, merciful heaves!

Yuki: Buck up... Kaede!
Kaede: Yuki!

Okina: What's wrong? Your master cries...
Kaede: Granpa!

Moriya: Hmph, you punk.
Kaede: Moriya!

  Then...

Kaede:  Hah, that's it. Destiny moves. Don't fear... a new era... A new
destiny... I'll take it all on! With this power!

======================================================

-----
Name: Minakata Moriya
-----

-------
Ending:
-------
Kagami: Foolish human. You'll destroy yourselves! O, to lose to you! But in
defeating me, you shame my existence! I rot with my plan. And return to the
abyss! Again... my art will return!

  Kagami disappears...

Moriya: Master! Pull yourself together!
Gaisei: Oh... Moriya... listen to me... well... don't even think of avenging
me... you'll...

Moriya: ......
Gaisei: He's too strong! Kaede, Yuki... you, too.. ooohaaah... gyah!

Moriya: Master!
Gaisei: Ooh! Don't cry for me... this, too, is destiny. All living things
die... thanks to you three, I've had a good life...

Moriya: M, master? Master!!!

=======================================================

-----
Name: Yuki
-----

-------
Ending:
-------

Kagami: Foolish human. You'll destroy yourselves! Why? Love is impotent. Why?
Why do you grow so strong?
Yuki: You don't understand. People can become as strong as they please. Yes...
to protect those they love...

Kagami: Heh, heh, heh. Love? Loved ones? Only fools speak of such. Very well.
The love you speak of... will disappear with  my ambition! So long, ya sap!

======================================================

-----
Name: Kanzaki Juzo
-----

-------
Ending:
-------
Kagami: Foolish human. You'll destroy yourselves! O, to lose to you! But in
defeating me, you shame my existence! I rot with my plan. And return to the
abyss! Again... my art will return!

  Kagami disappears...

Juzoh: Whew! Over at last!
Akari: Juuu... zoooh!

Juzoh: Aaah! Akari?!
Akari: You left me behiiind! Waaiiiit!

Juzoh: Have pity!

======================================================

-----
Name: Ichijo Akari
-----

-------
Ending:
-------
Kagami: Foolish human. You'll destroy yourselves! O, to lose to you! But in
defeating me, you shame my existence! I rot with my plan. And return to the
abyss! Again... my art will return!

  Kagami disappears...

Four ELs.: You did well, daughter of the Ichijo! If you did not help, Hades'
power would've won. But I stay uneasy... our strength will be given to a
suitable one!

  And so it came to pass. Akari's exploits continued into the era of meiji and
continued on! Akari Ichijo. Force of order... for her, that realization... has
not yet... sunk in.

======================================================

-----
Name: Lee Rekka
-----

-------
Ending:
-------
Kagami: Foolish human. You'll destroy yourselves! O, to lose to you! But in
defeating me, you shame my existence! I rot with my plan. And return to the
abyss! Again... my art will return!

  Kagami disappears...

  At last it's over... but is it really? I believe in justice... and have
battled evil. But I ask myself this: Is violence the only answer? That guy said
it, "We'll destroy ourselves..." I have only enforced "justice" through
violence. I'm also a foolish human... what is "justice"? What is the truth? I
must find truth. Until I find "justice", I cannot return to the temple.
                     Please forgive me. I'm a selfish little disciple!
                                     Lee

======================================================

-----
Name: Naoe Shigen
-----

-------
Ending:
-------
Kagami: Hoo, hoo, hoo.
Shigen: Hmph.

Kagami: From hate, you become a demon. You're no better than a human! I give
up.
Shigen: What?

Kagami: You must be destroyed. and your corpse... will be the base of a new
age!
Shigen: Kagami! I... become a wild demon! But... the White Tiger... the duty of
the guardians... must not be forgotten!

Kagami: Hmph!

======================================================

-----
Name: Shikyo
-----

-------
Ending:
-------
Kagami: Foolish human. You'll destroy yourselves! O, to lose to you! But in
defeating me, you shame my existence! I rot with my plan. And return to the
abyss! Again... my art will return!

  Kagami disappears...

Shikyoh: What? What the? W, WAAAAAAH!


  And so the battle of Hades' gate ended. Several months later, the damage was
fixed. And life... returned to normal. And in the normalcy... the one who saved
the world. Disappeared in the fog of the complacency of peace.

======================================================

-----
Name: Washizuka Keiichiro
-----

-------
Ending:
-------
Kagami: Foolish human. You'll destroy yourselves! O, to lose to you! But in
defeating me, you shame my existence! I rot with my plan. And return to the
abyss! Again... my art will return!

  Kagami disappears...

Washizuka: A fearful enemy!
Soldier: Washizuka? Your next mission. You must crush the rebellion. A band of
samurai and the Choshu clan. They have formed a pact, and plan to seize power.

Washizuka: I understand. I'll investigate it post haste! I got a bad feeling
about this! But whatever may happen, they will not succeed!

======================================================

-----
Name: Zantetsu
-----

-------
Ending:
-------
Kagami: Foolish human. You'll destroy yourselves! O, to lose to you! But in
defeating me, you shame my existence! I rot with my plan. And return to the
abyss! Again... my art will return!

  Kagami disappears...

Zantetsu: The demon... was not what was rumored. Hades' power was nothing.
Those who slay the weak, are slain someday themselves. My technique... is the
essence of battle. To slay all brutes, until I achieve perfection. Until I die,
I must cut!

  Thus the way of "ninja" passed through generations and was passed to
successors of the afterlife. In every age... to fuel the powerful... (Eiji's
picture shows up)

======================================================

-----
Name: Genbu no Okina
-----

-------
Ending:
-------
Kagami: Our master... quite impressive...

Okina: Why? why try  to open hades' gate?

Kagami: Hmph. Old man, has your vision faded such? What is our mission? We four
Gods? To protect the pathetic, self-interested human trash? Not!!! We four Gods
exist to maintain order! These foolish humans, are destined for destruction.
Now! Now is the new age! Now is the time... to build a new order!

Okina: Wait! Kagami! You're wrong! Wait! Wah! Fool! His heart was too pure.
Kagami! Look! We remaining three... will build a new era of hope!

======================================================

Name: Amano Hyo

-------
Ending:
-------
Kagami: Foolish human. You'll destroy yourselves! O, to lose to you! But in
defeating me, you shame my existence! I rot with my plan. And return to the
abyss! Again... my art will return!

  A few days later...

Amano: Wow! I feel good! Whew! Drinking with you is one of life's pleasures.
Good booze.  Pretty blossoms. I can't get enough of this! Whoa! I almost
forgot. What about it, you? One more shot? Huh, what's wrong? Drinking this
sake alone is a waste!  Don't you think? By the way... are you a man or woman?
Man... press A  Woman... press B

  When you press A button...

Amano: I thought so! Built like a ox, you are. Great cherry blossoms, huh? It's
all on account of you. This is really great. All these babes too. Shall we?
Here's to you!

  When you press B button...

Amano: Oh, yeah! Heh, heh, heh. You sure got great... equipment. You look
tough, too. We could become a beautiful pair... how about it? A toast to our
meeting! Here's looking at ya! Cheers.

  If you do not answer...

Amano: What? No answer? Well, I don't rush it. I'm not asking the world. Heh,
heh... just being with you is enough. Well then, here's to you!

Kagami: Foolish human. You'll destroy yourselves! O, to lose to you! But in

abyss! Again... my art will return!

  Kagami disappears...

Musashi: Pathetic man. A new age... is not far off! With Hades' gate closed,
only my body is lost. It was a good battle!

  The puppet... slays the puppeteer.

Kagami: Hmph. Very well. There is no denying it: The human fools will perish!
Now, more than ever... a new age is dawning!
