== A Message from Kayama =================================================
I would like to thank Tsubaki for taking the time to translate this
episode for me, so I could take a break. ^_^  I have primarily only made
editing changes for stylistic consistency with previous episode faqs.  As
for the translation itself, Tsubaki has done the entire episode,
including the translation notes at the bottom; I have only made a couple
corrections in one or two requested lines of dialogue.  I will be
resuming translating starting with the next episode.  Once again, thanks,
Tsu.

== Episode 8 Translation =================================================

Erica: Everyone from the Tokyo Flower Division is so strong!  I'm deeply
   moved.

Glycine: That's true...  Regrettably, I must acknowledge that our force is
   lacking.

Coquelicot: Think about it... if Iris and the others hadn't saved us, we
   would have probably lost again...  I never want to lose again!  Let's
   become strong, Ichiro!

Glycine: We must use beyond our current strength to protect our Paris.

Hanabi: From now on, if we raise our strength one by one, we'll be
   invincible!{1}

Lobelia: Well, if you guys are getting strong, I'll be able to earn some
   cash easily... I'll try doing it for that bonus.

Erica: Mr. Ogami, let's begin special training!  I want to become strong!!
   Like the Tokyo Flower-Division!!

Ogami: I understand everyone's feelings.  I'll inform the manager and plan
   special training!!

Erica: Roger!

Episode Eight
Angel That Can't Fly
~ The Virgin Saint, Erica ~
---------------------------

Ogami: Special .... coaches?

Grand Mere: Yeah, since those girls now have the desire.  I had the
   coaches come especially for them.

Ogami: I see.  Thank you very much, manager.

Grand Mere: It's a good thing.  They should be arriving in Paris already.
   Monsieur, please go to pick them up.

Ogami: Roger!  Could you please tell me their names?

Grand Mere: *Laughter*  ... if you go, you will understand.  They should
   be waiting to meet you at the TERUTORU Plaza water fountain.

Ogami: Huh?  The TERUTORU Plaza water fountain, huh?  Understood.

* * *
Ogami: At the very least, the manager could have told me their names
   instead of keeping them to herself......

   There's no one that appears to be them.  Even though they're
   supposed to be here...  Hmm?  A message from the Kinemetron?

Kinemetron: The special training coaches have lost their way.
   Please find them.

Ogami: They've lost their way?  I've got no choice... I'll try
   looking around the vicinity.

Ogami: I wonder if the coaches have come to a place like this...

Mell: Say, is this the same shampoo that you usually use?

Ci: Yeah, it is.  Why?

Mell: The bubbles aren't disppearing easily... I wonder why....

Ogami: Mell and Ci are taking a shower!?

-- Option 1 - My body's moving by itself toward the shower... --
Ogami: O...oh no... my body's moving by itself toward the shower...

   I need to solve the problem of why the shampoo bubbles don't disappear.

Ci: The shampoo bubbles won't disappear easily, huh.  Why is that?

Ogami: I see... so that's why...

-- Option 1 --
Ogami: Mell, the shampoo's bubbles aren't disappearing because Ci is
   pulling a prank on you.

Mell-: Oh, so that's how it's done.  Thanks so much, Oogami...san?
   *Scream* What are you doing here?!  Get out!!

Oogami: Sorry!

* * *

Ogami: Phew... even though I helped them, I made them mad...

   Huh?  The door is opening again?

Mell: Not "Huh?"!!  To do such a thing as peeping into our shower...

Ci: I'm going to talk to Owner, and have her destroy your salary!!

-- Option 2 - Warn Ci --
Ogami: Ci, I don't think your pranks are nice!

Ci-: If you say that Mr. Ogami, peeping in female showers are not nice!

Mell: Eeh?  Mr. Ogami!?  *Scream*  Leave at once!!

Ogami: S... sorry!!  I'll leave at once!!

* * *
Ogami: Phew... even though I helped them, I made them mad...

Mell: Not "Huh?"!!  To do such a thing as peeping into our shower...

Ci: I'm going to talk to Owner, and have her destroy your salary!!

- Option 3 - Quietly leave --
Ogami: (I'll leave quietly as to not make a sound...)

* * *

Ogami: Phew... I somehow made it out of there...

      Huh?  The door is opening again?

Mell-: Not "Huh?"!!  To do such a thing as peeping into our shower...

Ci-: I'm going to talk to Owner, and have her destroy your salary!!

Ogami: Phew... even though I helped them, I made them mad...

== LIPS 8.2 End ==

Ogami: Eeh?  To do such a thing...

Ci: Prepare to resign!!

Ogami: Hehehe... my salary's going to drop?  I screwed up...

-- Option 2 - Leave --
Ogami: I should leave after all.  Peeping in women's showers can't be forgiven.

-- Time Over --
Mell: Ah... it's you, Ci!!  If you don't cut it out, I'll get angry!

Ci: Sorry Mell.  But... look, they say that you play pranks on those you    like.

Mell: That's what children do.  You're already big, aren't you?

Ci: I'm still a kii~d.  So I can still play pranks on you!

Mell: Oh Ci... No... cut it out I said...

Ogami: (Even in a place like this, they're really buddies... anyway,
   I should leave as to not be discovered.)

~ If Mell and Ci caught you peeping in their shower Start ~

Ci: Ah, the peeping monster has come.

Ogami: Eeh!?  P... peeping monster?  That is mean...

Ci: I'm very disappointed that you would peep at us in the shower!

Ogami: I apologize, Ci.  From now on, I'll be more careful.
   Would you please forgive me?

Ci: Fine... if you answer my question truthfully, then I'll forgive you.

Ogami: Understood!  I'll answer truthfully.  What's the question?

Ci: Between me and Mell... which one of us is prettier?

== LIPS 8.3 Start ==
-- Option 1 - Of course it's you, Ci! --
-- Option 2 - I would have to say Mell... --
-- Time Over --
==
-- Option 1 - Of course it's you, Ci! --
Ogami: Of course it's you, Ci.  I've already decided.

Ci-: Seesh, you're lying.  Mr. Ogami, you really think that Mell's prettier.

Ogami: Eeh!?  Such a thing...

Ci: Because, Mr. Ogami, you're always having fun with Mell,
   just the two of you.

Ogami: Ah... you're... er... sorry.

Ci: But... it's ok.  I'll forgive you just this once.

-- Option 2 - I would have to say Mell... --
Ogami: I would have to say Mell...

Ci: Mr. Ogami, you think so too?

   Everytime you do something wrong, her getting angry is pretty cute.

   I won't forgive you for peeping in on Mell's shower, but
   I'll forgive you just this once.
-- Time Over --
Ogami: Ah... no... how can I say who...

Ci: You're not being straight-forward.  Which one of us!!

Ogami: Ah.. b... both.  Both of you are pretty.

Ci:  Boo... you're being unfair but, I'll forgive you just this once.

== LIPS 8.3 End ==

Ogami: Understood.  I won't peep a second time.

Ci: So then, it's a promise.  Next time you peep, I won't forgive you, ok?

   Anyway, I have work so I'll see you later.

Ogami: Yeah, see you later.  Good luck on your work.

~ If Mell and Ci caught you peeping in their shower End ~

Ogami: Hm?  Ci isn't here.... where did she go?

   I've got no choice... I'll go somewhere else.

==
-- Option 1 - Purchase a bromide --
Ogami: How about a bromide?

Ci: Mr. Ogami, you have all the bromides.  I don't have anything left to sell you.

   Thank you so much for your support!

   Oh yeah, Mr. Ogami!  I'll give you this bromide, especially for you.

Ogami: T... this is... Mell and Ci's bromide?

Ci: Exactly!  We tried making a bromide of me and Mell!!

   We have permission to sell them but, we're making them a special
   service for those who have purchased all the bromides!

Ogami: Thank you, Ci.  Take care.

-- Option 2 - Talk to Ci --
Ci: Oh yeah, Mr. Ogami.  Next time you see Sakura, please tell her "Thanks".

Ogami: "Thanks"... for what?

Ci: She gave me Osenbei as a souvenir from Japan.{2}

   It's chewy, a little bit sweet, and delicious.

   And also, when she gets back to Japan, she'll send over some
   sweets called "Omanjuu".{3}

   "Omanjuu"... that sounds delicious.  I wonder what kind of sweets they are.

== LIPS 8.4 Start ==
-- Option 1 - Sweet and delicious. --
-- Option 2 - Sweets where you use "anko" --
-- Option 3 - I'm scared of them... --
-- Time Over --
==
-- Option 1 - Sweet and delicious. --
Ogami: They're sweet and delicious.  I like them.

Ci+: They're sweet and delicious?  Even though I haven't ever eaten it,
   I can tell it's delicious.

   Ahh... I'll look forward to it.

- Option 2 - Sweets where you use "anko" --
Ogami: Sweets where you use "Anko".  In Japan, if you use those things,
   you can easily eat them.

Ci: "Anko"?  What's that?

Ogami: Something where you use boiled and smash red beans, and then add    
   sugar.  They're sweet and delicious.

Ci: Red beans... is it a cream you make out of beans?  Sounds yummy.

- Option 3 - I'm scared of them... --
Ogami: I'm scared of them.  Hahaha...

Ci: "Omanjuu" are scary things?

   They're not delicious?

Ogami: N...no... there's a comedy story called "Manjuu is scary"

Ci: Hmmmm... if they're scary, then I shouldn't eat them, right?

- Time Over -
Ci: What's wrong?  Don't tell me... Omanjuu aren't very yummy?

Ogami: No, it's just that sweets don't agree with me...

Ci: They don't bother me.  Whenever I eat sweets, I'm in heaven.

== LIPS 8.4 End==

Ci: Anyway, Japanese sweets... they're amazing.  They use things like
   rice and beans, stuff that normally becomes a meal, to make sweets.

   I've become a big fan of Japanese sweets!!

-- Option 3 - Leave --
Ogami: I'll see you later, Ci.  I've gotta go.  Good luck on your work.

Ci: Thanks!  You too!

Ogami: By the way, Mell, what are you so enthusiastic about?

Mell: Um... I'm... er... practicing my signature...

Ogami: Signature?

Mell: Yesterday, after the revue was over, a guest came up and sought out my 
   signature.

   Since I never thought about my own signature, I wrote it normally.

   I'm practicing as an apology to that guest.

Ogami: I see...

Mell+: Wh...what are you saying?  Don't joke around.

Ogami: I'm serious...

Mell: Just as I figured... I can't... it's too embarassing.

-- Option 2 - What kind of signature? --
Ogami: What kind of signature?

Mell: I'm thinking of a simple one but... it would be great if I had a cute 
   one.

   *Laughter*  I still haven't decided what kind of signature I should do.

Ogami: Is that so... would you let me take a look at it?

Mell: M... my signature?  Um... I can't.... it's too embarassing.

-- Option 3 - Should I write my signature too? --
Ogami: Should I write my signature too?  Actually, I was thinking about it 
   before.

Mell: Mr. Ogami, you also have a signature!?

Ogami: Yeah... it's nothing special but...

Mell+: Th.. thanks so much... just what you would expect from Mr. Ogami.

-- Time Over --
Mell-: Seesh, plase say something.  Can't you see it's embarassing?

Ogami: Ah, sorry!

   more.  I haven't settled on one.

-- At 12:15 --

Ogami: Ah, a message from the kinemetron.

Kinemetron: The special coaches are surely at a place where there's a small
   river.

Ogami: Surely at a place where there's a small river... I wonder where that 
   is...  Anyway, I'll try looking around.
{These messages are in random order.  You will get this message but just 
not necessarily at 12:15.}

* * *
~~ At the bridge by the water (水辺の橋) Start ~~
Ogami: Oh... Coquelicot?  You're tossing glass bottles in the river... what 
   are you doing?

Coquelicot: Ah, Ichiro.  Hey, I wrote a letter to Japan.

Ogami: A letter to Japan?  What do you mean?

Coquelicot: I heard about it from Hanabi.  The earth's lands are all 
   connected by the seas.

   The Vietnam that I was born in, Ichiro and Hanabi's Japan, and even 
   France are all connected.

Ogami: That's definitely true.  I arrived in France by riding a boat.

Coquelicot: And you know what?  This flowing river is also connected to the 
   sea.

   So, I stuck a letter inside the glass bottle to be carried off by the 
   river.  Some day, it will arrive in Japan.

Ogami: Ah, I see.

== LIPS 8.7 Start ==
-- Option 1 - It would be great if we received a reply. --
-- Option 2 - What kind of letter did you write? --
-- Option 3 - Why Japan? --
-- Time Over --
==
-- Option 1 - It would be great if we received a reply. --
Ogami: It would be great if we received a reply from friends in Japan.

Coquelicot+: Yeah!  We'll definitely get a reply back!  I was thinking that 
   if my letters could reach the whole world, I could make a lot of friends.

-- Option 2 - What kind of letter did you write? --
Ogami: What kind of letter did you write?  Could you tell me a little about 
   it?

Coquelicot: Umm.. it's about you, Ichiro.  That and about Erica and everyone 
   else.

   About how I made friends with them in France.  That's the type of things
   I wrote about.

-- Option 3 - Why Japan? --
Ogami: Why Japan?  Isn't Vietnam where you were born?

Coquelicot+: That's because it's Ichiro's birthplace...

   Later, I think it would be great if the people from the Tokyo Flower 
   Division got to read it.

-- Time Over --
Coquelicot-: Ichiro, what's wrong?  Wait a sec... don't tell me
   you don't think it will arrive there...

Ogami: No... that's not it.  It would be great if it arrived in Japan.

Coquelicot: Yeah!  It'll definitely arrive!  We'll definitely get a reply 
   back.

== LIPS 8.7 End ==

Coquelicot: Say, Ichiro, when do you think it'll arrive?  I wonder if it'll be by next month.

Ogami: I wonder... even I don't know how long it will take to get there.

Coquelicot: But, it's weird...  even though the world is connected by seas,
   there's a lot of people we've never met.  Ichiro, Erica, Glycine, Lobelia 
   and Hanabi.

   Grand Mer, Mell, Ci... I'm so glad I met you all.  Right Ichiro?

Ogami: Yeah, me too.  I'm really glad I met you, Coquelicot.

Coquelicot: Ehehe, I'm gonna go watch my letter float away.

Ogami: Coquelicot looks like she's enjoying herself.  It would be nice if 
   that letter would arrive in Japan soon...

   Anyway, I need to look for the special coaches.

~~ At the bridge by the water (水辺の橋) End ~~


~~ At Lobelia's room (エレベーターへ->ロベリアの部屋) Start ~~
Ogami: Lobelia... I wonder if you're in your room.

Erica: Miss Lobelia!  Is it ok to throw away this bottle?

Ogami: Hmm?  Erica is already here.  What are those two doing?

Lobelia: Wait a sec... I'm coming over there now.

   T... that's...?!  Erica, what an incredible discovery!

Ogami: What happened!?

* Knock *

Ogami: Lobelia, what's going on?

Lobelia: Commander!?  Come inside.  We just found something great!

   Look, Commander!!  We found 300 year-old brandy!

Ogami: Huh?  What do you mean?

Lobelia: The brandy inside the bottle!  There's enough in this one bottle
   to build a house, isn't there?

Erica: Waa!  That's amazing!  But... what's so great about this alcohol?

Lobelia: Well brandy is... fermented in a barrel of everygreen oak.

   After about 3 years, it ferments, the moisture evaporates, and the 
   substance shrinks to about 2/3.

   This decreased portion is called "The Angel's Portion".

Erica: Hmm? Angels actually drink, huh?

Lobelia: So, one barrel is made up of 60 years of stuff, and you need 700 
   barrels.

Erica: So even though you make one barrel, you still need 700 barrels?  That's amazing.

Lobelia: But see, in the barrel, the alcohol has a limit of 60 years for 
   fermenting.  Any longer and the alcohol will go bad.

   And so, the wonderful thing about this is that, for the remaining 240
   years, it's been preserved not in a barrel, but in a bottle.

   So in order to not let the alcohol go bad, the alcohol will become 
   mild-tasting.  It's the best preservation-state.

Ogami: Lobelia...

==
-- Option 1 - Let's secretly drink it. --
Ogami: Let's secretly drink it.  If it's such amazing alcohol, no doubt 
   it'll be delicious.

Lobelia+: That would be great... They say that "Great alcohol is humanity's 
   friend".

Erica-: Stealing is wrong.  I have to properly inform Grand Mere.

-- Option 2 - Let's inform the manager. --
Ogami: Let's inform the manager.  If you give into selfishness, I won't 
   forgive you.

Erica+: That's right, Miss Lobelia.  Exactly like Mr. Ogami said.

Lobelia-: Your heads are hardened.  I'll inform Grand Mere myself.

-- Option 3 - Let's split this equally among the three of us. --
Ogami: Let's split this equally among the three of us.  Kind of like a 
   special bonus.

Lobelia+: YOu say that easily... It's just like you to say that... I knew 
   you'd say that...

Erica-: Stealing is wrong.  I have to properly inform Grand Mere.

-- Time Over --
Lobelia: You've got nothing to say, huh?  This kind of alcohol is probably a 
   once in a lifetime experience.

Erica: Miss Lobelia, stealing is wrong.  I have to properly inform Grand 
   Mere.

== LIPS 8.8 End ==

Lobelia: Anyway, this lecture's over.  Erica, Commander, thanks for cleaning 
   my room.

   Alright alright, leave.  I've got a bunch of stuff to do.

Erica: Eeh?  She threw us out.  Since it's Miss Lobelia, she'll inform Grand 
   Mere properly.

   Listen Mr Ogami, you said it yourself.  "If you believe in someone, you 
   will be saved."

Ogami: That's true.  Since she's a friend, I'll believe in her...

Erica: Even Lobelia can be of assistance.  I've got to go.

Ogami: Lobelia being of assistance... that's great.  Anyway, I should go.

Ogami: Ah, Hanabi.  Are you looking something up in the library?

Hanabi: Ah, Mr. Ogami.  I'm looking up things about Japan.

Ogami: Do they have a reference for Japanese books at this library?

Hanabi: Yes they do.  They have older books, but.. they don't have much in 
   the way of current books from Japan.

Ogami: So that's why, for some reason, I get this old-fashioned feeling from 
   you.

Hanabi: I'm a little embarassed about it but... you're absolutely right.

   So Mr. Ogami, is there anything different between me and the females in 
   Japan right now?

== LIPS 8.9 Start ==
-- Option 1 - That isn't the case. --
-- Option 2 - You're too... old-fashioned?
-- Option 3 - You're definitely a Yamato Nadeshiko. --
-- Time Over --
==
-- Option 1 - That isn't the case. --
Ogami: That isn't the case.  Don't worry about things like that.

Hanabi+: Really?  I ... was a little uneasy.

   Miss Sakura was what I imagined a Japanese woman to be but Miss Sumire 
   is... um...

-- Option 2 - You're too... old-fashioned.
Ogami: I wonder if you're too... old-fashioned.

Hanabi-: Since they only have books from the Edo period in this library, 
   I'll think about this on my own...

Ogami: Er...

-- Option 3 - You're definitely a Yamato Nadeshiko. --
Ogami: You're definitely a Yamato Nadeshiko.  Don't worry about things like 
   that!

Hanabi+: R... really?  I'm a Yamato Nadeshiko...

   I was thinking that the term "Yamato Nadeshiko" was reserved for someone 
   like Miss Sakura...

-- Time Over --
Hanabi-: Ah... you couldn't give me an answer, so I'm sorry for troubling 
   you...

Ogami: Er... it's not like that...

   Er...

== LIPS 8.9 End ==

Ogami: Everyone's different.  Right now, I think you're great just as you 
   are.

Hanabi: Um... Mr. Ogami.  Next time, would you please tell me the Imperial 
   Theater's address?

Ogami: No problem.  Why?

Hanabi: I was thinking that I would send Miss Sakura a letter...

   That is... so that she could tell me about Japanese females... ppo

Ogami: Ah, sure.

Hanabi: Thanks so much.  Anyway, I must be going.

Ogami: Hanabi and Sakura... it would be great if they became good friends.

   Anyway. I've got to find those special coaches.

~~ At the library (図書館) End ~~


-- At 12:30 --
Ogami: Ah, something on the Kinemetron.

Kinemetron: The special coaches are at a place where people wear uniforms.

Ogami: A place where people wear uniforms...?  Isn't that a school?  Anyway, 
   I'll try investigating.
* * *

~~ At the flower shop (花屋) Start ~~
Hanabi: Ah, Mr. Ogami...  what are you doing at a flower shop?

Ogami: It's not that...  Hanabi, did you come to buy flowers?

Hanabi: I came with Erica to purchase a bouquet to use at the Chattes Noires.

Erica: Hey Hanabi!  What do you think of these flowers?  They're gorgeous!!

Hanabi: But... chrysanthemums aren't the type of flowers you would use when 
   you want to celebrate...

Erica: Is that so?  I thought they were pretty...

   Ok, then how about roses?  They're perfect for Glycine!

Hanabi: That is true.  I think that's a great idea.

Erica: Alright, next is flowers to use on your your stage, Hanabi.

Hanabi: Please choose something that's not very showy...

Erica: Hmm.... this is hard.  Oh I know... Mr. Ogami, what kind of flowers 
   do you think are good?

Ogami: Let's see...

== LIPS 8.10 Start ==
-- Option 1 - How about these cute daisies? --
-- Option 2 - How about the same type of roses as Glycine? --
-- Option 3 - I can't say there are any flowers... --
-- Time Over --

-- Option 1 - How about these cute daisies? --
Ogami: How about these cute dasies?  Since you have a clean image, it suits 
   you.

Hanabi+: Really?  Thank you very much... ppo.

Erica+: Great, then we've decided on the daisies.

-- Option 2 - How about the same type of roses as Glycine? --
Ogami: How about the same type of roses as Glycine's?  These brilliant roses 
   suit you as well.

Hanabi: Really?  I get the feeling they're a bit too flashy.

Erica+: That's ok.  Well then, we'll get roses for you too.

-- Option 3 - I can't say there are any flowers... --
Ogami: I can't say there are any flowers...

Hanabi-: Is that so... you're saying that no flowers suit me.

Erica-: Mr. Ogami, that's terrible!!  I'll decide on the flowers for Hanabi.

   Let's see, how about these daisies?  Look, they're clean and pretty.

Hanabi: Miss Erica, thanks, you've cheered me up.

-- Time Over --
Ogami: I apologize... I don't know much about flowers...

Hanabi: Is that so... I was thinking you would choose for us...

Erica: Hey hey, Hanabi.  How about these white flowers?  Don't you think 
   they're beautiful?

Hanabi: Ah, daisies?  They're really beautiful...

Erica: Ok, we'll use these flowers for Hanabi.

== LIPS 8.10 End ==

Erica: Hey Hanabi, after we buy these flowers, let's return to the shop.

Hanabi: Since I was helped out by Miss Erica, we finished picking flowers 
   quickly.

   *Laughter* If it's with Miss Erica, today is all the more lively.  Well 
   then, I must also take my leave.

Ogami: So Erica was helping out Hanabi....

   Anyway, I've got to go look for those coaches.

~~ At the flower shop (花屋) End ~~


~~ At the marketplace (市場) Start ~~
Erica: Ah, Mr. Ogami.  You've come at the right time.

Ogami: Erica?  What are you doing here?

Erica: I'm shopping for ingredients for everyone's lunch.  That's my duty for today.

Ogami: Ah, so that's it.  So, what's for today's lunch?

Erica: Melons!  Today there's a big discount on melons.

Ogami: Melons?  For lunch?

Erica: That's right.  They're inexpensive and delicious... everyone will be 
   pleased.

Erica+: Really!?  Could it be that I would make a good wife?

Ogami: Ah... I wonder...

Erica: Being a good wife... I feel awkward...  Mr. Ogami, I'd be good at it.

-- Option 2 - Melons for a meal...? --
Ogami: Melons for a meal...?  Aren't they for desert?

Erica: They're for the meal.  Mr. Ogami, is one melon not enough for you?

Ogami: N...no... that's not what I meant...

Erica: Well, it can't be helped, ri~ght?  Just for you, I'll give you two 
   melons.

-- Option 3 - I don't really like melons... --
Ogami: I... don't really like melons.  Sorry.

Erica-: You hate melons, Mr. Ogami?  Really?

Ogami: Even though I just said that...

Erica: You're picky at food.  It'll be ok.  I'll make you eat it until you 
   like it.

-- Time Over --
Ogami: ...

Erica: Mr. Ogami, what's the matter?  You don't seem to be happy.  Are you 
   stressed?

== LIPS 8.11 End ==

Erica: See ya later, Mr. Ogami.  I'm off.

   Please come back to the Chattes Noires for lunch.

Ogami: Today's lunch is melon, huh?  I wonder if everyone's alright with 
   that.

   No matter how much I think about it, it can't be helped.  I've gotta find
   those special coaches.

~~ At the marketplace (市場) End ~~


~~ At the restaurant (レストラン) Start ~~
Ogami: Hey, Glycine.  What are you doing?

Glycine: Um... noth... I have a traditional event called "HAARARU's 
   Holiday/Memorial Day"...

   I'm not good at this, no matter what.  Each year, I futily participate in 
   it but..

Ogami: You don't mean you're gonna sneak away from it?

Glycine: Is... is that wrong?  It has nothing to do with nobility.

Ogami: That may be true but...

-- Option 1 - Well, sometimes it's ok.  --

   name.

Glycine+: Hehe, sometimes it's ok, right?

-- Option 2 - How deliquent your nobility is. --
Ogami: Seesh.. how deliquent your nobility is.  Sneaking away from a family 
   event...

Glycine-: You have no right to say that!  Even you know that!

Ogami: I... I apologize, Glycine.

-- Time Over --
Ogami: ...

Glycine-: If you have something you want to say, say it clearly!

== LIPS 8.12 End ==

Ogami: Oh, by the way.  Why are you sneaking away from "HAARARU's Holiday"?

Glycine: Because of the octopus...  I really hate those squirming octopi!

Ogami: Huh?  Octopi?  The octopi from the sea?

Glycine: My ancestor King HAARARU, in an act of heroism, ate octopus when he 
   was about to starve to death, and was acting in the only way he could in 
   order to save his own life.

   So... to honor HAARARU, we have to eat an entire plate of octopus.

Ogami: I see... so that's how it happened.

Glycine: I will, in a short while, hide myself so even Tarebou won't know.

Ogami: Ah, understood.  Well then, I've got to get going.

~~ At the restaurant (レストラン) End ~~


~~ At the cafe (カフェ) Start ~~
Lobelia: Yo, Commander.  What are you doing in a place like this?

Ogami: The special coaches are coming to the Chattes Noires but... they 
   appear to have lost their way.

Lobelia: So you're stuck picking them up?

   Hmmm, as always, Grand Mere is rude for using people like that...

   But it can't be helped.  Since I've got free time, I'll help you.

Lobelia: Help..!?  You...?

Lobelia: Che, what a cunning person.  Actually...

-- Option 2 - Please do so. --
Ogami: Please do so.  You're finally becoming a part of the Paris Imperial 
   Assault Squad.

Lobelia+: And also... in exchange, I have a favor to ask.

Ogami: A favor?

-- Option 3 - You're not Lobelia!! --
Ogami: You're not Lobelia!!  If you were, she wouldn't say, "Can I help?"!!

Lobelia-: That's terrible!  That's so terrible!

   I was just thinking that I wanted to help you out when you're stressed.

Ogami: I... I see... Well then, please.

Lobelia: I have a favor to ask...

Lobelia: I'll help you, ok?  In exchange, I have a favor to ask...

Lobelia: This time, The Louvre Art Museum is having an jewelry exhibition.

   There, the "Red Maiden's Tear" will be displayed.  Iiiii waaaaant youuuuu 
   to help me steal it.

Ogami: What are you saying!!  No way!!

   I won't forgive a criminal.  If you're stealing, I will definitely try 
   stopping you.

Lobelia: Che, if only I could have used your katana's hilt, I would be able 
   to steal it easily.

   Well, that's fine.  I'll think of another way.  See ya.

Ogami: That Lobelia... she's planning yet another scheme.  That person can't 
   be helped.

   I'll think about this later.  Right now, I've got to find those coaches.

~~ At the cafe (カフェ) End ~~

-- At 12:50 --
Ogami: Hmm, something on the Kinemetron.  What is it, what is it?

Kinemetron: The special coaches are at a place with a lot of artists.

   looking a little more.

~~ At the circus (サーカス) Start ~~
Ogami: Hey Coquelicot.  What are you doing?

Coquelicot: Right now, I'm making medicine for the animals.

Ogami: Eeh?  Coquelicot, you can make medicine yourself?

Coquelicot: Yeah, if it's easy medicine, I can make it from herbs from the 
   forest.

   The animals are adapting to the summer heat.  So I'm making medicine so 
   that they'll become really healthy.

   I need you hold this bottle for me for just a sec.

   You can NOT drink this medicine.  Promise me.

Ogami: Medicine that'll make you really healthy, huh?  I wonder if I should

Ogami: It's because I've been tired recently...

Coquelicot: I made this medicine for the sick elephant.

Ogami: Eeh?  I drank it all...

Coquelicot: Hurry up and drink this water!  If you do so, it'll allow only a 
   little to take effect.

Ogami: *Glugglug*

Coquelicot: I'm going to BUROONYU Forest to get more medicine.  No more 
   pranks!

-- Option 2 - Sip just a little bit. --
Ogami: Medicine that will make you healthy, huh?  I'll try sipping just a 
   little bit.

   Bleh, what is this medicine?

Coquelicot: Thanks for waiting.

Ogami: C...Coquelicot.... wa....water!

Coquelicot-: Don't tell me you drank the medicine.

Ogami: I sipped... just a little bit...

Coquelicot: I made this medicine for the sick elephant.

   That's why I told you not to drink it.  Here, water.

Ogami: Ah, I can live....

Coquelicot: I'm going to BUROONYU Forest to get more medicine.  No more 
   pranks!

-- Time Over --
Ogami: Since Coquelicot told me not to drink it, I'll control myself.

Coquelicot: Thanks for waiting!

+  Ah, you took care of it while I was gone.  Thanks!!

   Since I made this medicine for the sick elephant, if you drank it, it 
   would have knocked you down.

Ogami: M...medicine for the elephant?  I'm so glad I didn't drink it.

Coquelicot: I'm going back to the forest to get herbs.  Bye-bye, Ichiro!

Ambassador: Hey Ogami.  Perfect timing.  Wait just a minute.

Ogami: What's wrong?  Did something happen?

Ambassador: Not that, I've been sorting documents since this morning.  I was 
   looking for a way to escape...

   Ogami, could you please sit in this chair and pretend you're me?  I'm 
   going to get some air at TERUTORU Plaza, and come back soon.

   rely on your kindness!!

   Well, see you in a bit.  Please take care of it.  I'll come back soon.

Ogami: So even Ambassador Sakomizu becomes stressed.  I understand your 
   feelings but...

Ambassador: Who becomes stressed?

Ogami: Ambassador Sakomizu!?  Th... that was quick.

Ambassador: My secretary was waiting there bowing at me... I was caught at 
   once.  Being too efficient can be harmful, too, every once in a while.

   So that's how it happened, Ogami.

Ogami: Ah, ok.  Well, If you'll excuse me.

-- Option 2 - I can't do that. --
Ogami: I can't do that.  Ambassador, please do your job properly.

Ambassador: Th... that's true but... that is that and this is this.

Ogami: I won't let you.

Ambassador: I understand.  I'll do my job properly.

   Tonight, I was thinking of taking you to a great place but..

   I won't bring you there anymore.  Too bad, Ogami.

Ogami: Eeh?  Ambassador Sakomizu, that and this are completely different 
   conversations.

Ambassador: I'm keeping that great place to myself.  Well then, I've got 
   work to do so can you remove yourself from my chair?

-- Time Over --
Ambassador: So what's your answer?  Can you pretend you're me?

Ogami: Ah... understood.

Ambassador: Thank you, Ogami.  Since we're both Japanese, I thought I could

   What was that!?

Komusou: ....

Ogami: A Komusou?  Why is there a komusou in Paris?{4}

Kouran: Long time no see, Mr. Ogami.  You seem to be having fun.

Kanna: Don't be doing that stuff in public.  Commander, have you been eating well?

   our special training?

Kanna: Why are you saying such distant words?  We're the Imperial Floral 
   Assault Squad.

Kouran: Yeah, whenever Mr. Ogami is in trouble, we'll come to help you 
   anytime.  That's a part of being a Flower-Division member.

Maria: Commander, wherever you are, is where we, of the Flower-Division, are
   supposed to be.

Ogami: Everyone.... thank you!!

-- Option 2 - Why komusou? --
Ogami: Why komusou?  It really stands out here in Paris.

Maria: Since we undertook being your coaches, I thought we'd try to watch 
   the members of the Paris Floral Assault Squad.

Kanna: It would have been great if I brought a disguise set from the 
   Imperial Theater, but I only had a komusou outfit.

Kouran: I told them not to do it but Kanna was caught up in it...

-- Option 3 - Who are you again? --
Ogami: Um.... who are you again?  I don't know any komusou...

Kouran: What's that, Mr. Ogami?  Even though not even a half year has 
   passed, you're saying you forgot us?

Kanna: Don't say you don't know us because of the komusou.

Maria: You seem exhausted, Commander.  Are you alright?

-- Time Over --
Kanna: What's wrong, Commander.  Have you forgotten us?

   To be able to meet you all for the first time... I'm deeply touched!!

Kanna: What what is this?  This person all of a sudden...?

Ogami: ... This is Erica.  A member of the Paris Imperial Assault Squad, that
   you will be coaching.

Kouran: Ah, so that's who she is.  You seem to have it pretty tough.

Erica: You guys are supposed to be in Tokyo.  Why have you come to Paris?

Maria: Because... we're your special coaches.

Erica: You are our special coaches!?  In short, you're the people who
   will be coaching us especially?

Kouran: Isn't that phrase longer...?

Maria: Commander... you've really got it tough, huh...

Ogami: Please take care of them... We're relying on you three.

Ogami: This woman is Maria Tachibana.  She will be in charge of your
   fighting strategy training.

Maria: I'm Maria Tachibana.  Pleased to meet you.

Erica: I'm Erica Fontaine.  My regards please!

Maria: M...mine as well.

Ogami: This woman is Kirishima Kanna.  She will be training you in
   battle technique.

Kanna: Nice to meet you everyone.  If you hold your ground and eat your
   meals, you'll be able to do the special training.

Erica: I've eaten my meals!  My regards please!

Kanna: O...ok.

Ogami: Finally, this is Ri Kouran.  She'll be training you in maneuvering
   the Koubu F.

Kouran: Nice ta' meet ya.  If it's regarding machines, leave it to me!

Erica: I'll leave it to you!!  My regards please!

Kouran: M... mine too...

Ogami: Ok, from Japan, let's let the Paris Floral Assault Squad Special 
   Training begin!!  Everyone, prepare yourselves!!

Everyone: Roger!

* * *
Maria: ... An enemy takes a hostage.  In this situation, what should you do?

Erica: I got it!  You pray to God for them.

Maria: Incorrect.  How about Coquelicot?

Coquelicot: You first go and save the hostage!!

Maria: Exactly.  You understand well.

Erica: I guess I got it wrong.

Lobelia: Ahahahahha, isn't it ok to be yourself?

Glycine: Really... this isn't the time to be laughing.

* * *
Kanna: I cover the important real-battle aspects.  Since this is battle
   training, gather up your willpower.

   The rounds are filled with wet paint, so use the paint guns.  If you're
   hit, it will hurt a bit.

Erica: Roger!  It'll hurt when you're hit!!

*PLOP*

   It's true!! It hurts when you're hit!

Lobelia: What's with her... did she hit herself on purpose?

Erica: Kyaa!  Kyaaaaaa!

Kanna: She understands the seriousness of this... but... does she understand
   the meaning of special training?

Erica: Tohoho... I'm deep red...

Hanabi: Miss Erica... this isn't the time to be saying "Tohoho"...

* * *
Kouran: Miss Erica, you're ready right?  Can you push the blue button right 
   in front of your eyes?

Erica: Blue button...?  It's gotta be this one.

   Huh?  Here is another blue button.  Huh?  Another one?

Kouran: Ah... oh no!  If you push so many buttons at once...

*BOOM*

Erica: Ahh... it... it blew up.

Kouran: Aaaa~h... she's all mixed up...

Coquelicot: Erica... since this is special training, you have to do things 
   properly.

Erica: Ehehehe... I completely failed.

* * *
Grand Mere: So how did things go?  How are the girls' results?

Maria: The Paris Floral Assault Squad as a whole, exceeded my expectations 
   in strength, but...

   Only Erica Fontaine has not reached a passing grade.

Kanna: It was just Erica, getting hit by all the paint-guns.

Kouran: Yeah... Erica was the first one I've seen pushing the self-destruct 
   button all of a sudden at the beginning of training.

Ogami: Is that so...  Erica had such results...

Kouran: Say, Mr. Ogami...  I can't criticize her, nor do I think she's just 
   baggage but... how do I say this... I think that spiritual energy 
   strength isn't the only strength of the Flower-division.

Kanna: Not only that, Commander.  No matter what happens, she take things
   easily during those times.  Erica's gift of entertaining people is, 
   despite being good or bad for grades, definitely a marvelous talent.

Kouran: Miss Erica has her own good points.  What do you think, Mr. Ogami?

== LIPS 8.16 Start ==

   about telling you that.

-- Option 2 - Let's not spoil her. --
Ogami: Let's not spoil her.  If it's thinking about Erica's sake, from now 
   on we must be strict.

Kouran: Mr. Ogami... after you came to Paris, you've changed.  If it were the
   old Ogami, he wouldn't say such a thing.

Maria: Commander... kindness and strictness... there are always two sides to 
   an object.  You can't lead with strictness alone.

-- Option 3 - I'll try watching her just a little longer. --
Ogami: I'll try watching her just a little longer.  Maybe I'll draw out
   and find the answer.

Kouran: You're right.  Maybe you will find the answer yourself.

-- Time Over --
Ogami: Kouran...

Kouran: Everyone has their own role... Mr. Ogami, you've found Erica's role.

== LIPS 8.16 End ==

Grand Mere: I think you already know this but, Erica is an important member.
   Monsieur, please take care of her.

Kanna: I'll leave Erica up to you, Commander.  Although I don't think you 
   can cure her clumsiness that easily.

Ogami: Erica's clumsiness certainly springs out, even within the Paris Floral
   Assault Squad.

Maria: I think so too.  If you include her, you'll find a hidden spiritual 
   energy within.

Grand Mere: What do you mean?  Please explain.

Maria: This is my intuition but... I think that Erica's spiritual energy has 
   not fully awakened yet.

   I feel it deep within her.  A power completely enveloping, very gentle.

Grand Mere: Hmmm.  From now on, inform me of your observations of Erica.

Ogami: Understood.  I'll prepare my mind.

Grand Mere: Ok, then, let's disperse.  You all have various things to do.

Ogami: Roger.  Now if you'll excuse me.

* * *
Maria: Ok, Commander.  We have some remaining things we need to do, so we'll
   see you later.

Ogami: Remaining things you need to do?

Maria: Yes.  I wish to see Lobelia's dance, so I'm going to the stage.

Kouran: I'm going to the hangar to adjust the Koubu F a bit.

Kanna: I don't have any place special to go, so I'm going to the kitchen,
   to try some authentic French cooking.

Maria: Well, Comomander.  We'll be going.  If you need anything, please come.

Ogami: Ah, gotcha.

* * *
   Alright, I should return to doing my work.

Erica: U... um... Mr. Ogami.  Do you have a minute?

Ogami: What's wrong Erica? You have such a serious expression.

Erica: My... um... special training scores are really bad...

   Mr. Ogami!  Would you please accompany me for my special training?

   Lobelia's dance... that's on the other side...

Ogami: What are doing?  The two of you have scary faces.

Lobelia: Be quiet.  We're in the middle of a game.

Maria: Game?  Such words could only be heard by your victim.

Ogami: What do you mean?  Please explain, Maria.

Maria: My gun and her knife... we're trying to test who's ability is higher.

Lobelia: The victory conditions are... you can't touch your opponent.

Ogami: I won't forgive such a thing!  What will happen if someone gets
   injured?

Glycine: Oh... a duel?

Ogami: Glycine!?  Please don't encourage them.

Glycine: Why?  This is Lobelia and Maria's formally challenged duel.

   I, Glycine Bleumer, will judge as an impartial bystander.

Ogami: Eeh?  Even Glycine is...

Glycine: The rules are, on my signal, at the same time, shoot an
   apple off of the Commander's head.  Is that ok?

Ogami: Wh...what?!  Aren't I the one in danger!?

Lobelia: Ah, that's cool.  No matter if the Commander is killed or doesn't
   die, I'm cool with it.

Maria: It seems like it's useless to persuade you otherwise.... Commander,
   I will protect you, without fail.

Glycine: So it's all set.  When this coin falls, that's the signal.

   Let's go!!

Ogami: Be...because of tension... somehow my nose is itchy....

Lobelia: Now!!

Maria: Take that!

Ogami: Waaaaaaaa!!

   Maria, thanks.  That was really dangerous.

Maria: That was a thoughtless situation.  More importantly, are
   you ok, Commander?  It doesn't seem like you're hurt.

Lobelia: So who was the one that pierced the apple?

Glycine: Lobelia.  But, this match goes to.... Maria.

Lobelia: Huh!?  What do you mean?

Glycine: Look at this knife.  Maria shot the falling knife that
   would have hit the Commander.

Lobelia: What!?  You said that the bullet hit my knife?

   Geeze... it can't be helped.  My timing was all messed
   up because the Commander sneezed.

+  It can't be helped.  Maria, you're the winner.  Well, it's
   good that we had fun.

== LIPS 8.17 End ==

* * *
Lobelia: Hey you... even though the knife was going to hit you,
   why didn't you move aside?

Ogami: Ah, because if it's Maria, I know that she'll definitely
   shoot it for me.

Maria: Thank you very much.  Since the Commander was calm, I
   could easily aim for the knife.

Glycine: Such a mutual trust...

Lobelia: Che... how boring.  I'm gonna go.

Glycine: Now if you'll excuse me also.

Ogami: Lobelia... Glycine... the two of you are acting a bit strange.

Maria: Commander... you don't get it?

Ogami: Get what?

Maria: *Laugh* If that's so, that's fine.  Well, I also have to go.
   Until next time, Commander.

Ogami: H.. hey Maria!?  ... It can't be helped.  Well, I've got to
   go.

-- Option 2 - See what Kanna is doing. --
Ogami: That's right... let's see what Kanna is doing.

   She definely said that she'd go to the kitchen.

* * *
Ogami: Hey... Kanna and Coquelicot... what are you two doing?

Kanna: Er... that Coquelicot gave me various types of food.

Coquelicot: You've finished eating the apple?  Well here.  This
   time, I'll give you these bananas.

   Ehehe, Miss Kanna... you're totally just like my beloved
   Cleopatra.

Kanna: Cleopatra!?  Isn't that the name of the girl unequaled in beauty?
   Don't waste that comparison on someone like me.

Ogami: The Cleopatra that is like Kanna is...

-- Option 1 - A guest at the circus? --
Ogami: A guest at the circus?  Is she a fan of yours, Coquelicot?

Coquelicot: Mm mm.  That's not it.  Cleo is an animal at the
   circus.  We've done magic together.

-- Option 2 - A worker at the circus? --
Ogami: A worker at the circus?  One that stands with you on stage?

Coquelicot+: Yep.  Unfortunately, not anymore.  Cleo is an animal that
   I used to do magic with.

-- Option 3 - An animal at the circus? --
Ogami: Could it be an animal at the circus?  The person you said
   resembles Kanna?

Kanna: Commander, that can't be it.  No matter how you look at it,
   I'm no animal...

Coquelicot+: How did you know?  Ichiro, you're amazing!!

-- Time Over --
Ogami: Hmmm, what kind of person is that?  Is it a good looking person
   like Kanna said?

Coquelicot: Cleo is a circus animal.  She used to do magic with me.

== LIPS 8.18 End ==
Kanna: But even though you say it's an animal, its name is Cleopatra
   right?  It must be a beautiful animal, right?

Coquelicot: Cleo is a beautiful gorilla.  When she eats, it's totally
   like you, Kanna!!

Kanna: Go...gorilla?!  Me...?

Coquelicot: When I first saw you, I thought, "Kanna is big and nice,
   just like Cleo."!

Ogami: (So...sorry Kanna.  I don't think Coquelicot has any ill-will.)

Kanna: (I can tell.  When she says it with that kind of face, there's
   no way I can become angry.)

   Hohohoho?  Ahahahah!!  Coquelicot, you must really like Cleo.

Coquelicot: Yep!  We've always been together!!  So, I really like you
   too, Kanna!

*Crash*

Ogami: Hmmm?  Hanabi?  What's wrong?  You have such a scared face...

Hanabi: U... um... Miss Kanna is also... Japanese... right?

Kanna: Ah... yeah.  Why?

Hanabi: Miss Kanna is also a Yamato Nadeshiko... right?

   Being a Yamato Nadeshiko is something deep within.

Ogami: Yes.  Hanabi, if you will, Kanna is a Japanese female, so
   she is a Yamato Nadeshiko.

Kanna: I am... who I am.  As for Yamato Nadeshiko, everyone is
   different.

Hanabi: So it's like that?  Um... is it ok if I speak with you
   a little bit more?

Kanna: Ah, that's fine.  But, Commander, what are you going to do?
   Do you have somewhere else to go?

Ogami: That's right.  I'll go somewhere else.

Kanna: Really?  Well, I'll see ya around, Commander.

-- Option 3 - See what Kouran is doing. --
Ogami: That's right.... let's go see what Kouran is doing.

   She definitely said she'd go to the hangar.

* * *

Ogami: Hey Kouran.  What do you think of the hangar?

Kouran: Yo Mr. Ogami.  How do I say this about the Koubu F.... they're
   incredible machines.

   While it seems like I've tinkered with the Koubu Kai everyday
   at the Imperial Capital, I haven't seen such a splendid thing
   until I came here.

Jean: Hehehe, Miss, even though you're young, you've got good eyes.

   Commander, even though an engineer can tighten a bolt,
   he may have not gathered enough training.

Ogami: Ah... so that's how it is...

Jean: Of course!  Technique and tools aren't the only thing needed for
   adjustments.

Kouran: That's right, for adjusting machines, there are two important
   things needed.  Do you know what they are, Mr. Ogami?

Ogami: Important things for adjusting machines?  Let's see...

== LIPS 8.19 Start ==
-- Option 1 - Wisdom and courage! --
-- Option 2 - Love and faith! --
-- Option 3 - Ability and tools! --
-- Time Over --
==
-- Option 1 - Wisdom and courage! --
Ogami: They are wisdom and courage!  Wisdom to adjusting the machines
   and the courage not to get upset when you fail.

Kouran: That's not exactly it...  Wisdom and courage are both important
   but, they're important in a real-battle.

Jean+: The important things are... love and faith.  Sorta like a marriage
   to a machine.

Kouran: Love that considers the people riding, and faith in your own
   abilities... those are important to an engineer.

-- Option 2 - Love and faith! --
Ogami: They are love and faith!  Love toward those riding, and faith in
   one's own abilities.

Kouran: As expected, Mr. Ogami, you understand!!

Jean+: Since you know what we're discussing, you could probably make
   some adjustments to the koubu as well.

-- Option 3 - Ability and tools! --
Ogami: They are ability and tools!  Isn't it obvious?

Kouran: You're great!  You're great at being absent-minded, Mr. Ogami.

   Since I'm right beside you, I'm worried about your absent-mindedness.

Jean: Hey hey... being absent-minded is important for adjustments.

   The important things are, love that considers the people riding, and
   faith in your own abilities.

-- Time Over--
Ogami: The two important things are... hmmm what are they?  I don't really know.

Jean: The important things are love and faith.  Machines seem like they're
   distant objects, but...

Kouran: Love that considers the people riding, and faith in your own
   abilities... those are important to an engineer.

== LIPS 8.19 End ==

Ogami: You two are somehow like the same person.

Kouran: I also feel like I've known this squad leader for a
   long time.

Jean: Hehe, you're saying these happy words.  How about it,
   do you want me to train you as my disciple?

Kouran: That would be great.  Leave it to me!!  I've got a
   few inventions that I've brought too!

Jean: Oi, I'll be teaching Miss Kouran especially.  Hey, you
   guys move it!

Ogami: Kouran and the squad leader are have already left...
   I'll be going as well.

   Just as I thought... an explosion.  I wonder if the
   squad leader and the rest are ok?  They all seem strong..

Maria: Excuse me, Commander... I have a favor to ask...

Ogami: What's the matter?  You're wearing the revue costume?

Kouran: Tomorrow, we're returning to the imperial capital.  We've gone 
   through all this trouble to come to Paris, the City of Flowers.

Kanna: There is something we wanted to try.  Isn't it great, Commander?

* * *
Mell: Tonight we've changed our program to show all of you a special show!

Ci: From far-away Tokyo, the Imperial Drama Group has flown here to our very 
   own, Chattes Noires!

Mell: Maria Tachibana! Kirishima Kanna!  Ri Kouran!!

Ci: Everyone, please enjoy yourselves to your heart's content!!

* * *
Glycine: To commemorate their coming to Paris, they want to stand on stage.
   They truly are stars.

Coquelicot: Thanks to those three, I feel that we've become much stronger
   than before.

Hanabi: They're already leaving.  How very unfortunate.

Lobelia: After the revue, let's throw a farewell party.  Let's make some 
   noise!

Ogami: (Maria, Kanna, Kouran... thank you.  All thanks to you, the Paris 
   Floral Assault Squad has grown again.)

Coquelicot: Huh?  By the way... Erica isn't here.  Where did she go?

* * *
Erica: I... I wonder if I'm just baggage to the rest of them after all...

   Aa~ I don't like this... what should I do...

== Eyecatch 8.1 ==

Hanabi: Excuse me, Mr. Ogami.  This is about Erica but... she said that she
   wanted to be excused for today.

Ogami: ... I see.

Glycine: It's already been 3 days.  I think that cheerful girl probably
   caught a cold...

Coquelicot: What happened...?  Hey Ichiro, do you know anything?

Ogami: Certainly, she has not been here since she took time off.

Lobelia:  We should just leave it alone since she's not a child.  It is said 
   that they'll come back when they're hungry.

Mell: Mr. Ogami, please come!!

Ci: There's a very suspicious person outside of the building!!

Glycine: It couldn't be... the Kaijin have come here to stake out the place?!

Ogami: It would be dangerous if we all went.  Alright...

   away.

Ogami: I'm going!  I'll leave this place in your hands!!

-- Option 1 (After 1/2 time) - I have go to see how things are? are?  Really?
Ogami: I have go to see how things... are?  Really?

Coquelicot-: Since you're the commander, Ichiro, you must get a hold of 
   yourself!!

Lobelia+: Dea~r, good lu~ck!!  I'll wait for you~ *Blows a kiss*

Ogami: U...understood...  I'll go check it out.

-- Option 2 - Consult with everyone. --
Ogami: Alright, I'll consult with everyone!  So, who should go check it out?

Glycine-: ... you of course.  Who else?

Ogami: Ho...how about Lobelia?  Don't you think she'd be good enough?

Lobelia-: Ee~h, no wa~y!  I'm sooo~ scared that I can't do iii~t!!

   Anyway, isn't it a commander's job to not let his squad face danger?!

Ogami: If... if only you'd be nicer at such a time...  understood.... I'll
   go check it out.

-- Option 3 - So what kind of person is it? --
Ogami: So what kind of person is it?  I want as much information as I can.

Mell: I get this feeling that he's strangely hesitant, as if he's looking
   for something here.  I think maybe he's scouting.

Ci: Yes, I think so.  He's been peeping inside the windows.  He's a really
   suspicious male!

Ogami: Understood.  The information I just got is plenty.  Now it's up to me
   to investigate.

Hanabi: Mr. Ogami, please do so... ppo.

-- Time Over--
Ogami: Hmm, isn't it ok to just leave it alone?

Glycine-: What are you saying!!  Do all you can at critical moments!
   This is what they call protecting!!

Lobelia-: When you're around, I thought we'd be safe but my expectations
   were wrong.

Mell: Mr. Ogami, please!  Please investigate the suspicious man!

Ogami: Ah, ok.... understood.  I'm going.

* * *
Ogami: That man over there... he's certainly a hesitant suspicious male...

   Hey you!  Who are you!!  Prepare yourself!!

Man: Ahhhhhhhhhhh!  Som....someone please rescue mee!!

Erica: Mr. Ogami, please stop!!  This person is Father Leno from the convent.

Ogami: Fa...Father Leno?  Please excuse me!  Are you hurt?

Leno: I'm ok.  Since it was so sudden, I was just surprised, yes.

Ogami: By the way, Erica, why are you here?  Weren't you taking time off from
   this place?

Erica: Yeah... um... Mr. Ogami... um... I...

Leno: Excuse me, I'm sorry to interrupt your conversation but, I have
   something that needs your attention, Mr. Ogami, yes.

Ogami: Something... you wish to discuss?  ... understood.  Please come in the
   building.

Leno: I'm sorry for the trouble, yes.  Please take me in.

Erica: Excuse me, Mr. Ogami... I...

Ogami: I'm sorry, Erica.... can we talk about it after I speak with Father 
   Leno?

Erica: Ah, ye.... yes.  Understood...

* * *
Ogami: So, what did you wish to talk about?

Leno: I have a favor to ask!!  There's no one else but you who I can rely 
   on, yes.

   Actually... Erica became cut off from the convent about a half-year ago.

Ogami: Re.... really!?  But, why?

Leno: Erica is a reflection of a sister who enjoys serving the people with a 
   pure heart.

   I didn't want to tell her to resign.  But... I was at my limit, yes.

   At first, she just did cleaning.  I foolishly left her in charge of
   cleaning the sanctuary...

   When I went to check up on her, what I found was the statue of the Virgin
   Mary in pieces.

   When I left her in charge of plucking the grass, the flowers, the trees,
   everything was pulled out and the flower bed was completely bare...

   It was so even with cooking...  Because of the soup that Erica made,
   those misfortunate people became even more sorrowful.

   Because of reasons like this, half a year ago, Erica was asked to
   leave.

Ogami: But isn't Erica living at the convent, even now?

Leno: That is true.  Because I encouraged her, she got the wrong impression.

   Since then, unfortunately Erica became even more enthusiastic. Meanwhile
   her failures have become even worse...

Ogami: So the favor you ask is perhaps...

Leno: That's right.   I want you to tell her "Please do not come back to the
   convent."

Erica: (Just as I thought... it was like that...)

   *Loud Sound* Ah!?

Ogami: E...Erica...!?  This conversation.... where you listening to it?


   *Footsteps*  Erica, wait!

* * *
Erica: Mr. Ogami... farewell...

Ogami: Erica, listen to what I have to say!  Erica!!

* * *
Ogami: Erica!  Please come back!!

Glycine: What's the matter?  Did Erica come here?

Ogami: Yeah... actually...

* * *
Erica: ... Where should I go...?

   I don't like this... it seems like it will rain forever...

* * *
Glycine: Is that so.  You had that kind of conversation with Father Leno...

Coquelicot: That is so horrible!  You should have told her not to resign!!

Hanabi: Anyway, we must find Erica quickly in this rain!

Lobelia: I'll just let you guys go.  We should just leave her alone if
   she wants to go out.

Coquelicot: That's mean, Lobelia!  Isn't Erica our friend?!  I'm going out
   to look for her!!

Glycine: Erica is our precious friend.  I wouldn't think about losing
   her!  I'm going as well!!

Hanabi: I'm going as well.  A Flower-Division without Erica has no meaning!!

Lobelia: I can't keep up playing "friends" along with you.  I'm going to go 
   drink.

Ogami: Everyone...

   I must go look for her.  Erica, where could you be in this rain?

Lobelia: Well... in general.  Aren't you hurting the feelings of those

   I'm off!

Ogami: Ah, Coquelicot... have you found Erica?

Coquelicot: Not yet.  You haven't found her either, huh.

Ogami: Yeah... I've been looking but...

Coquelicot: You know, Ichiro... when I'm with Erica, I have lots of fun.

   Napping together, making sweets, we've done a lot of different things.

   You know, Erica has created a bunch of fun memories for me.

   But even so, I can't stand the thought of Erica not being around!!

Ogami: Coquelicot...

- Option 1 - Let's call it a day. --
Ogami: Coquelicot, let's call it a day.  It's already late-night.  Leave the 
   rest to us.

Coquelicot-: Erica is crying alone out there!  I must go!!

   Erica was always beside me...

   Whenever I cried... whenever I was angry...

   Whenever I wanted someone beside me, it was always Erica who was there.

   So... so, this time I want to be by Erica's side!!

-- Option 2 - Let's keep searching for Erica. --
Ogami: Let's keep searching for Erica.  I think she is definitely waiting 
   for you to come.

Coquelicot+: Yeah... that may be true.  If it's to find Erica, I'll do 
   anything.

   Because... Erica has done so many things for me.

   Helping me clean the animals' cages... making clothes for me...

   So.... so, this time I want to do something for Erica!!

-- Option 3 - Don't cry now. --
Ogami: Don't cry now.  If you cry, Erica will find out.

Coquelicot: Ok... I won't cry.  The person who really wants to cry
   is Erica.

   Anyway, Erica... if I cry, it's because I'm so worried about you.

   So I won't cry for your sake, Erica.  I don't want to make you worry.

-- TIme Over --
Coquelicot: What's wrong Ichiro?  You've stopped talking...

Ogami: It's nothing.  Coquelicot, let's go find Erica.

Coquelicot: Yeah, I'm sure Erica is waiting for us.

   Alone... and drenched in rain... she is waiting for us.

== LIPS 8.22 End ==
Ogami: Coquelicot...

Coquelicot: I'll go look over on the other side.  Ichiro, please look over 
   there.

   If you find Erica, please let me know...  It's a promise!

Ogami: Coquelicot... you're truly worried about Erica.

   I must get a hold of myself for everyone's sake.

Ogami: No... not yet.  It looks like you haven't found her either.

Lobelia: Huh?  What are you saying?  I'm just taking a walk.

Ogami: Even though you're soaked with no umbrella on a rainy day?

Lobelia: Sh... shut up, idiot!!  Taking a walk soaked in the rain
   is great!

   Well then, I'm going to keep walking...

Ogami: Lobelia... if you're woried about Erica, you should just say
   you're worried.

Glycine: Grr!! How did such a thing....

Ogami: Glycine... have you found Erica?

Glycine: I have not yet found her...  Erica, where are you!!

Ogami: Calm down, Glycine.  This isn't like your normal self.

Glycine: Erica is no longer with us!  How can I be calm!!

   Erica entered the Paris Floral Assault Squad at the same
   time as me.  She is an irreplaceable friend.

   If that friend is in trouble, I must do anything I can...

Ogami: Glycine...

Ogami: Think of what you can do for her now, Glycine, about what you
   want to do for her!!

Glycine+: What I can do now... what I want to do for Erica...

Ogami: Glycine, I'm sure you know.

Glycine: That may be true.  When we find her, I will embrace her without
   even thinking.  Like the depths of my heart warming up, I would
   embrace her stronger and stronger.

   And I'd tell her just how much she's made me worry.

-- Option 2 - Stop blaming yourself. --
Ogami: Stop blaming yourself.  You're doing everything in your power.

Glycine: Don't console me... I didn't know Erica's feelings.

   I didn't know the ever-smiling Erica's true feelings.

-- Option 3 - So you like Erica. --
Ogami: So you like Erica.

Glycine: That goes without saying.  Did I ever say that I hated her!?

   It doesn't need to be said.  I would do anything to save Erica.

-- Time Over --
Glycine: You probably don't understand.  I would do anything I can to
   save Erica.

== LIPS 8.23 End ==
Ogami: Glycine...

Glycine: Right now, even one minute is time spent.  I apologize but I must 
   go.  I leave it to you as well.

Ogami: Ah, understood.  We will bring Erica back to the Chattes Noires.

Glycine: Of course.  Because the Chattes Noires is our home.

   I will search this vicinity just a little more.  Please take care of the
   other places.

Ogami: Glycine is this worried about Erica....

   The rain is getting stronger as well.  I must find Erica quickly...

~~ At the library (図書館) Start ~~
Ogami: Ah, Mell... was Erica around this area?

Mell: Ah, Mr. Ogami... it looks as if she hasn't been here.

Ogami: Mell, the color of your face doesn't look very good...
   Are you sick?

Mell: Just a little because of the rain... but I'll be fine for now.

   Even more important than me, we must find Erica...

Ogami: Mell...

== LIPS 8.24 Start ==

-- Option 2 - No way!  Go back indoors at once. --

==
-- Option 1 - Understood.  Let's find Erica. --
Ogami: Understood.  Let's find Erica.  But if you become worse,
   hurry back to the Chattes Noires.

Mell+: Understood.  I want to help find Erica with everyone else.

   "You're great at administration!"...  Erica was the first
   to ever praise me.

   Erica also took me, the one who is always focused on service,
   to other worlds.

   So this time, I want to be of service to Erica...

-- Option 2 - No way!  Go back indoors at once. --
Ogami: No way!  Go back indoors at once.  Otherwise, you'll collapse!!

Mell: I can't do that!  This time, I want to be of service to Erica!

   Erica is always thinking about me.

   She may be a little clumsy but... what about it?

   Isn't it ok?  I love Erica the way she is now.

-- Option 3 - Could it be you have a cold? --
Ogami: Could it be you have a cold?  You've been searching all this time
   in the rain...

Mell: You're mistaken!  I'm ok.  Anyway...

   I believe that if were Erica, she'd place others' needs above
   her own.

   I've wanted to be like Erica for some time now.

-- Time Over --
Ogami: But...

Mell: Mr. Ogami... please don't say anything.

   Right now, for just a little longer, we mustn't let Erica worry.

== LIPS 8.24 End ==
Ogami: I see...

Mell: Well, I must look around this area a little bit more.

Ogami: Mell, if things get worse for you, please return to the Chattes
   Noires and get some rest.

Mell: Understood.  I don't want to worry everyone else.

   Well, Mr. Ogami, I leave things in your hands.

Ogami: Mell... please don't overdo things...

Ogami: Hanabi!  Was Erica here?

Hanabi: Ah, Mr. Ogami... I've been searching for her but haven't yet...

Ogami: I see... you haven't found her yet...

Hanabi: Excuse me, Mr. Ogami, even if find Erica, please don't scold her.

   I think that Erica needs gentle words.

Ogami: Hanabi...

Ogami: Ah, I know.  I knew from the beginning that I wouldn't scold her.

Hanabi+: It seems as if you already know.

   I too... when Phillipe passed away, wanted to run away from everything.

   So I understand Erica's feelings well.

   I received courage from both you, Glycine and the others as well.

   So this time, I want to give courage to Erica.

-- Option 2 - No, I must get upset. --
Ogami: No, I must get upset.  She's made everyone worry this much.

Hanabi-: Is that... so...  If you're worried, you should be gentle...

   When I entered the Paris Floral Assault Squad, I was extremely nervous.
   My hands and feet were shaking.

   At such a time, Erica said something to me.

   "It's ok if you fail.  If the range you obtain is the best you can do,
   one day you'll master it."

   Because of Erica's words, my heart calmed down.

   So this time, I want to calm down Erica's heart.

-- Option 3 - I've come to hate myself... --
Ogami: I've come to hate myself... I didn't know Erica at all.

Hanabi: If even Mr. Ogami feels this way...

Ogami: But... I...

Hanabi: Mr. Ogami.  It's ok not to know her as long as you get to know her.

   In my opinion, it's never too late for people to get to
   know each other.

Ogami: Hanabi...

Hanabi: If Erica were here, I'm sure she'd say the same thing.  Am I wrong,
   Mr. Ogami?

-- Time Over --
Hanabi: Mr. Ogami... Would you promise me?  Don't scold Erica...

Ogami: Ah, understood.  I promise.

Hanabi: Thank you very much... now let's find Erica quickly.

== LIPS 8.25 End ==
Ogami: That's right, Hanabi.

Hanabi: Well, I must look around this area for a little while longer.

Ogami: Ah, understood.  I'll go look somewhere else.

Hanabi: Mr. Ogami, please look after Erica.

{Whoops, I need to investigate the time of this event...}

Ogami: Ah, a message on the Kinemetron.  What is it?  What is it?

Kinemetron: We have information that girl in a red dress is at the bridge.

Ogami: A girl in a red dress... it has to be Erica!  I must go to the bridge
   right away!!

~~ At the bridge ~~
Ogami: Erica is supposed to be here...

   Hmmm the person on top of the bridge... Erica!?

Ogami: Erica... I've found you.

Erica: Mr. Ogami.... I'm really an idiot, right?

   Aaa, not only have I failed at the Paris Floral Assault Squad...
   I'm also cut off from the convent...

   I didn't know at all!  That's why I'm such a failure.  Ahahahaha...

Ogami: Erica, that's enough... Come on, let's go back.  You'll catch a cold.

Erica: Go back... ah, that's right...  I no longer have a place to go back to.

Ogami: Erica... You have the Chattes Noires, right?  Everyone is waiting for
   your return.

Erica: I... don't want to go back there....

Ogami: Erica...

Erica: Because... I don't want to... trouble... them all... any longer...

Ogami: What's wrong, Erica!?  You've got a fever!!

   I've got no choice.  Right now I've got to bring her to my apartment.

* * *
Ogami: Say, your body's freezing, right?  You should warm up by showering.
   As for a change of clothes, how about these?

Erica: Ok...

* Sound of running water *

Ogami: I'll take this time to inform the manager.

* * *
Grand Mere: What is it?  It's you, Monsieur?  So, have you found Erica?

Ogami: Yes.  Right now, I'm looking after her in my apartment.

   Please tell everyone else.  I think they are still searching for her
   in the rain.

Grand Mere: Understood.  Monsieur, take care of Erica.

   Healing a member's wounded heart is also part of a commander's job.
   Remain firm.

Ogami: Roger.

Erica: Were you reporting to the Chattes Noires?

Ogami: Yeah... because everyone is worried.  Now, please sit here.

Erica: Ok.

Ogami: Erica... is your fever ok?

Erica: I still feel cold but, I think I'm ok...

Ogami: Since you were hit by all that rain, you caught a cold.  So please
   hurry and get some rest in bed.

Erica: But if I use the bed, you...

Ogami: Oh..

Ogami: No, I'll sleep on the tatami.  Since you have a cold, rest well in the
   bed.

-- Option 2 - The Japanese sleep on tatami. --
Ogami: The Japanese sleep on tatami.  Since I always sleep on tatami, you don't
   have to worry about me.

Erica+: Really!?  I found yet another secret about Japan!!

Ogami: Hahaha, now that you know, get into bed soon.  Otherwise your body will
   get cold.

-- Option 3 - Well, let's sleep together. --
Ogami: Well, let's sleep together.  Would you sleep together with me?
{As opposed to "Wanna sleep with me?", you pervs!}

Erica+: That's a great idea!!  If it's two people, I'll become that much warmer!!

Ogami: Eeh!!  That's no good after all.  I'l...I'll sleep on the tatami.  Erica,
   you sleep on the bed.

Erica: Huh?  It would have been great if you slept in the bed as well.

Erica: Ok, understood.

Ogami: Erica... have you fallen asleep already?

Erica: No I'm not... somehow, I can't sleep.

   Say, Mr. Ogami... I'm... hated by everyone else aren't I?

Ogami: Why do you think that?

Erica: Because I'm clumsy.  It seemed that even to Father, I'm a bother.

   Even though we've had Maria and the others' special training, only I
   didn't raise my grades.

Ogami: That's not true.  Everyone thinks you're important.

Erica: I've... come to hate my clumsy self.

   So, because I don't want to be hated, whenever I fail, I always make
   fun of it.

   Instead of being a bother to everyone, "I'll be cheerful... I'll be
   lively...", I thought.

Ogami: Erica... so that's why...

Erica: But, this time... so many things have piled up that...

   Laughing... is painful...

Ogami: It's ok not to overdo it... No one thinks you're a bother to them.

Erica: Is that... true?

Ogami: Yes.  Everyone loves you.

Erica: Mr. Ogami... do you also... love me?

Ogami: (A...asking such a thing in these circumstances...)

   Th...this is ... spiritual energy!?  The spiritual energy that
   remained inside her body all this time is now coming out and
   overflowing!?

   That's right... even Maria said that Erica's strength hasn't
   fully awakened yet.

   If Erica becomes aware of her own strength, maybe she will come to
   like herself...

Calmar: So you've come, my faithful servants.  I've got a new role for
   you.

Nadel: Duke Calmar, what is it?  You're in a good mood this evening,

Calmar: Hohahahahaha... I finally know where the location of those
   little brats.

Leon: So, where is that location?  Tell us quickly.

Calmar: "Theater Chattes Noires".  The little brats have a base there...

   Nadel, tear up the Floral Assault Squad brats with your claws.

   Your steam-beast repairs are already finished.  Be on your guard.

Nadel: Understood, Duke Calmar.  I will, without fail,  show you me, making 
   art out of them!

Calmar: Nadel already left, huh?  Corbeau.  I have a job for you as well.

Corbeau: Like the god of the arts, Muse, whatever role you have for me,
   I'll show you how flawlessly I perform.

Calmar: Then I leave you with this.  Look to see if Nadel dies, and
   make sure of the Paris Floral Assault Squad's strength.

Leon: I see... even if she dies, at least Duke Calmer can benefit
   from it.

Calmar: Indeed... every living thing has their own suitable role.
   Right, Corbeau?

Corbeau: For that woman, the only value she has is the extent of her role.

   I who live in darkness, shall depart from you.

   Grand Duke Calmar.  I will enjoy myself to my heart's content on

   beasts!

Coquelicot: But... but... we have no choice but to fight!!

Ogami: Exactly!  No matter what happens to us, we won't lose!

Grand Mere: Hehe... if it's you guys, it will be exactly like you said.

   There's "Good News" to these circumstances.  Please come with me.

Grand Mere: Squad Leader Jean, are you done?  With the remodeling of the 
   Koubu F2?

Jean: For a while now.  We've finished their bodies.

Ogami: Commander, look at this well.  At the Chattes Noires self-confident 
   work, the Koubu F2!!

Ogami: Th...this is the Koubu F2!?

Jean: Supervised by Kouran's plans to upgrade the parts, us engineers 
   remodeled the Koubu F.

   These bodies are a product of two powers come together.  The Imperial 
   Floral Assault Squad and the Paris Floral Assault Squad.  These babies 
   are powerful!

Ogami: Thank you very much, Squad Leader Jean!!

Hanabi: Yes, Maria taught us about the Flower-Division foundation-method
   of fighting as well.

Glycine: Sakura and the others taught us about the importance of teamwork... 
   right Erica?

Erica: Yes!!

Grand Mere: Erica... you've come back.  So how is it?  Have you returned for 
   good?

Erica: Yes!!  I made everyone worry!!

Grand Mere: Now that Erica has returned, it seems as if the Paris Floral 
   Assault Squad has finally become united.

Ogami: That's right!!

Grand Mer: Don't give out a command you will retract, because I believe in 
   you all.  Well then, your orders are to launch!!

??????: Hey hey, that newly summoned item is something that princess over 
   there can't handle.

Ogami: What!?   You are...!!

Corbeau: In this fight right now, my study of your new power has ended...
   Accompanied by your meager sacrifice.

   Ladies and Gentlemen of the Paris Floral Assault Squad...

Ogami: Hanabi, Glycine!  Everyone, stay strong!!

Erica: Why... why won't you move for me!?  Move.... please....

Ogami: Ahhhhh...!!

Erica: Mr. Ogami...!!

Ogami: Erica... even if it's just you... run... away...

Erica: *gasp*

Corbeau: It's over... in my tragedy, no other conclusion exists...
   what's left is terror and despair.

   Dreaming Princess.. miracles only occur within dreams.  They don't
   suit my stage.

   This is your place of memories... look at the Chattes Noires's cruel last
   moment with your own eyes!

Erica: It can't be... it can't end like this...

   I won't let youuuuuuuuuuuuu!

* * *
Corbeau: Ooh.. the darkness of the night... do well to dance on the land of 
   the waves!

Ogami: Grr... you've hidden your form in the darkness!?  How did you...

Mell: Mr. Ogami, in this darkness, it's difficult to catch sight of their 
   forms from the sky.

Ci: Change the Koubu camera mode to "Close Range Mode" and pinpoint those 
   around you!

Ogami: Alright, change camera mode to "Close Range Mode!  Be careful of your 
   surroundings.

Erica: Roger!!

~ If he kills an enemy ~
Erica: What a beautiful fight.


~ If hit by Corbeau ~
Corbeau: Dance of death, raise your tombstones now!  Dye her dress with 
   blood!!  Now dance to my melody!!

Hanabi: Ah.. the steam beasts seem like they're also powered up...

Corbeau: The foolish scorpion that crawled upon the earth fulfilled her role
   by dying.  The new dress is inexperienced yet!!

Hanabi: If you would go so far as to sacrifice your own comrade in order to
   find our weaknesses...

   We will fight with you, under the care of our friends!  We will definitely
   not lose!

-- Corbeau's Turn --
~ When almost dead ~
Corbeau: Why you... you've defiled my stage!

-- Erica's Turn --
Erica: Holy power... dwell in this red armor!

~ If she kills an enemy ~
Erica: You evil creatures, face the wrath of God!

== Battle 8.2 End ==
Corbeau: No...no way... a hawk was defeated by humans?  Did a miracle 
   occur...!?

   God..!!  Are you saying you wished for my death!  If that's so, look!
   Look at my death's radiance!!

* * *
Ogami: It's over.  Erica...

Erica: Really good, Mr. Ogami!!  We did it!

   W...wait a sec...

   Owwwww...

Hanabi: A....are you ok, Miss Erica?

Coquelicot: A~h.. after the battle's over, clumsy Erica comes back.

Erica: That's what it looks like, huh?  Ehehe...

Glycine: Haha... that smile of yours is the best fit for you.  Right Lobelia?

Lobelia: Whatever... that Erica's fine but.... one who's clumsy suits Erica.

Ogami: Everyone... we did our best.

   Now then, to celebrate our victory, let's do what we always do!!

Erica: I've waited for this!  I'm going!!

   Victory...

Everyone:  Pose!!

* * * * *
Erica: This place has become my room?  There's no commuting time!

Ogami: I spoke with the manager, and she let us make you a room out of the
   Chattes Noires attic.

   Because you can't live in my apartment forever, right?

Lobelia: Even though you say that... you sure living together isn't what you 
   want?

Ogami: Don...don't say such foolish things!  Of course not!!

Hanabi: But Mr. Ogami... your face is red.

Glycine: What a loose person... How scornful.

Ogami: This is a misunderstanding!!  Erica, say something!

Erica: Yaaaay!  This is my room!

Coquelicot: Hahahahhaha, Erica's like a little kid!

Ogami: E...Erica...

Glycine: Enough with the jokes.  The room is all cleaned up.

Erica: Yaaaay!  From now on this is my room right?!

Leno: Excuse me, I'm sorry.  This is Rune Leno, yes.

Ogami: Father Leno!?  Why are you here?

Leno: There's something I forgot to say to Erica, yes.

Erica: Yes?  Something you forgot to say?

Leno: I made it known that I wanted you to quit the convent...

   But, me and the sisters in the convent do not hate you.

   But rather, we love your cheerfulness and unprecedented nonsense, yes.

Erica: Father.... thank you very much!

Leno: Miss Erica, please come visit the church anytime.  Everyone is waiting 
   for you, yes.

Erica: I will!!  I will come visit anytime!!

* * * * *
Jean: Alright, that deluxe radar that Miss Kouran made is complete.

Grand Mer: Well then, let's begin testing.

Jean: Ok, power... on!  Steam is spouting!

Grand Mer: With this, we will know the Kaijin's true base, won't we.

Jean: Yeah... Miss Kouran is a genius.  She's even shown me a thing or two 
   about how to use steam.

Mell: The radar's image is on the main monitor!

* * *
Ci: Th...there's a reaction to an incredibly powerful strange force coming 
   from the underground of the island of Cite!

Mell: I believe the enemy kaijin's true base is located on an underground 
	section of the Notre Dame temple.

Grand Mere: Finally, the last decisive battle.  Are you all ready?

Glycine: Our Paris Floral Assault Group is ready, as always!  Right, 
   everyone!?

Coquelicot: Yeah, of course!!  Now that Erica has come back, our teamwork is 
   perfect!

Hanabi: Our Koubu were also strengthened, and we can now go having had 
   plenty of fighting training.

Lobelia: That's not all.  Erica's got an incredible power, isn't that right, 
   Erica?

Erica: Yes!  Bring it on!!

* POW *

   You hit me just a little too hard...

Coquelicot: Ahahahahaha!!  Erica isn't tense at all.

Ogami: Everyone, keep up the smiles!  Manager, Paris Floral Assault Group 
   members, battle preparations are perfect!

Grand Mere: I see... well then, with this meeting, you've gained 
   understanding of the assault operation.

Ogami: Everyone, we'll win and return peace to Paris with our hands!

Everyone: Yeah!!

* * * * *
Erica: I have.... this much power inside of me...

   I'm scared...

=== Special Thanks ===
- First of all, thanks to Kayama who allowed me to assist him in this 
translation project in the first place.  I thank him for giving me this 
opportunity to share my love of the game with you, the fans.  After doing 
this episode myself, I can only say that Kayama deserves much respect for 
the amount of effort, time and patience he's put into these games.  I spent 
probably about 30 hours of actual work doing this 1-episode translation.  
What Kayama does is, as I say, a gaijin's dream but a translator's 
nightmare.  His dedication to the cause, and to you fans, is not something 
to be taken lightly.  Try translating sometime, you'll understand ^_^.
- Thanks also to everyone who's helped me in this endeavor.  Without you, 
this translation could not have been completed, no matter how big or small a 
role you played in this.  I appreciate your assistance, and your willingness 
to help.
