P.3
MAN (Ferio)
Who are you guys?

P.4
UMI
Is he an enemy?

FUU
...... well, he looks human, but then there was that old lady a while
back, so we should be on guard.

[ALCIONE: o...old lady....]

HIKARU
Oh !

P.5
[MOKONA: Puu Puu]

MAN (Ferio)
Wh... what is this thing...?

[HIKARU, UMI, FUU: Awestruck]

UMI
Hikaru's sword...

<glow>

P.6
<whoosh>

FUU
It seems to have returned to the crystal in her hand.

UMI
Hikaru!!

FUU
I see.  Since Hikaru-san lost her "will" to fight, the sword disappeared.

UMI
What do you mean, lost her "will" to fight...Wait!  We still don't know
whether he's an ally or an enemy!

HIKARU
It's okay.  Look at Mokona... it looks so happy to see him.

P.7
[MOKONA: Puu]

HIKARU
Thanks for helping us.

MAN (Ferio)
Who... are you guys?

HIKARU
I'm Hikaru Shidou.  I'm from Tokyo.

MAN (Ferio)
.... Tokyo?  What is that?

HIKARU
We were summoned by Princess Emerau...
[mumble mumble]
[mumble]

Umi-cha... why did you...?

FUU
We do not know if that man is a good or a bad person yet.

P.8
FUU 
If that person is affiliated with the so-called Zagato... and if he found
out that we are from Another World, summoned to Cephiro by Princess
Emeraude...
We probably would be killed right here.

HIKARU
But Mokona....

UMI
Mokona might be like that all the time.

HIKARU
But... he helped us...

FUU
We can still figure out if he helped us out of kindness.

P.9
FUU
I am Fuu Hououji.  And this is...

UMI
...Umi Ryuzaki.

FUU
If you don't mind, could you please tell us your name...?

MAN (Ferio)
I'm Ferio.
Why are you guys wandering around the Forest of Silence?

P.10
FERIO
You cannot use Magic or Spells here.  Not even Magic Stocks (scrolls) or
Magic Items.  The only things you can use are your Wits and your Body.
You can't get out alive unless you're skilled with your sword.

UMI
And why are you here?

FERIO
I'm on my way to Eterna.

P.11
HIKARU, UMI, FUU
To Eterna!?

UMI
Why are you going to Eterna?

P.12-13
FERIO
To get the Legendary Mineral Eskudo.

P.14
HIKARU, UMI, FUU
EH!?

UMI (whisper)
Wait a sec.  Eskudo was the mineral we were supposed to get so Presea
could make our weapons, right?

HIKARU (whisper)
Y... yeah.
<nod>

UMI (whisper)
Then does that mean that that guy Ferio is our rival?

HIKARU (whisper)
Eh!?

UMI
Do you think they have a lot of Eskudo!?  Our share won't be gone, right!?

[HIKARU: I don't know]

P.15
FERIO
You guys are sure dressed funny.  It looks like you have guards on, at
least.

FUU
You were... Ferio, right?

FERIO
Yeah.

FUU
You were heading towards Eterna, correct?

FERIO
Yeah.

FUU
Do you know the way to get to Eterna?
<Smile>

p.16
FERIO
As I told you earlier, you can't use any form of magic in this Forest of
Silence.  Of course, Magic Compasses do no good.
I know that you have to go through here to get to Eterna, but I have to
find the Exit to the Forest by myself.  So it's no use to ask me for
directions.

FUU
I know where the Exit is.

FERIO
What!?

P.17
UMI
F... Fuu?

[FUU: <smile>]

FERIO
You say you know where the Exit is?  Start talking in your sleep AFTER you
fall asleep!
<Sigh>

FUU
Oh?  Was anyone asleep?

FERIO
Then it's true that you know where the Exit is...?

P.18
FUU
Yes, it's true.  But that's the end of the story if you choose not to
believe me.

FERIO
.... Where is the Exit?

FUU
Do you want to know?

FERIO
If you guys know.

FUU
I guess I could tell you.

HIKARU
I wonder what Fuu-chan is going to do...

UMI
I think I know what she's up to.

FUU
But I have a favor to ask.

P.19
FERIO
A favor?

FUU
Take us to the Exit with you.

[UMI: fu
 HIKARU: Meow!?]

HIKARU
Fuu-chan!?

UMI
Very clever, Fuu.
<Grin>

P.20
FUU
Since there seems to be a lot of monsters in this forest, it seems to be
very difficult for us to escape from this forest without any help.
So, if you are willing to help us fend off the enemies in this Forest, we
will guide you to the Exit.

FERIO
... What if I say no?

FUU
It's no use to follow us.  It looks like we won't be able to get out of
this forest alive if we can't find any help.

P.21
FUU
...and I'm sure that you would get lost.

[UMI: <grin>
 HIKARU: Fuu-chan, you're so cool!]

FERIO
[Mmmmm.......]
....so I would be your bodyguard.

FUU
Everything works as a "give-and-take" situation.

FERIO
What's that?

FUU
A proverb of our native land.

FERIO
Native... then are you travelers?

P.22
FERIO
Where are you from?
[FUU: <smile>]
You're not easy to bite...

FUU
I don't want to be too tempting of a morsel.

FERIO
Okay.
[UMI: Yay!!
 Hikaru: doesn't understand what's going on, but going with the flow.]

<rustle>
<whoosh>

P.23
<rustle>

FERIO
Another one!?

<slash>

P.24
<crash>

UMI
He looks like he'll be a good bodyguard.

FUU
It would be difficult for us to get out of this Forest by ourselves.  But,
his help increases the chances of us escaping safely.

P.25
UMI
But I wonder if Mokona really knows the way to Eterna...
<glance>

[MOKONA: Puu puu
 UMI: maybe not...]

HIKARU
You're amazing!
It's so amazing that you can use such a big sword with one arm!  Did you
practice a lot!?
<Fond look>

FERIO
[going along with Hikaru] Yeah...

P.26
FERIO
For Princess Emeraude...

[HIKARU, UMI, FUU: Eh?]

<gya gya...>

We have to start moving, it's useless to keep killing monsters here!
Which way do we go!?

[HIKARU, UMI, FUU: <stare>
 MOKONA: Puu]

<glow>

P.27
HIKARU
The jewel on Mokona's forehead...!

UMI
It's glowing.

<flash>

P.28
FUU
The direction that the light from Mokona's forehead is pointing
to...That's where the Exit is.

HIKARU
It's a monster!!

<rustle>

FERIO
Run!

P.29
UMI
Why aren't you fighting that one!?

FERIO
Swords are no good against that monster.... you guys are wandering around
here, and you don't even know that?
You said you were travelers... but what are you really?  If you're not
soldiers or knights, why do you have weapons....?

<rumble>

P.30
<rumble>
<flash>
<slash>

P.31
<boom>

FERIO
You guys aren't too bad...

P.32
<flap>
[MONSTER: Geeeeeeennn]

FERIO
It caught up with us!

HIKARU
Uugghh!

<thud>

P.33
<hiss>

HIKARU
Its wounds healed...!?

FERIO
That's why I said that swords are no good!

UMI
Wa... wait!  That thing is awfully powerful!

P.34
FUU
Arrows don't work either?

FERIO
You can't kill it with weapons.

UMI
In a forest where you can't use Magic, how are you supposed to kill it
without using weapons!?

FERIO
... You use your head.

[MONSTER: Kueeeeeeeee]

P.35
<rustle>

HIKARU
Look out!

UMI
You're the one in danger, Hikaru!

HIKARU
But it's dangerous for Ferio to be by himself!

FUU
He... has something up his sleeve.

HIKARU
Ferio!!

<rustle>

P.36
<hop>
<thud>
[MONSTER: Gee!?]
<wobble>
[MONSTER: GEEEEEeeeeeeeee]

P.37
<hiss>

HIKARU
You did it!!

UMI
[My, he's strong.  Very strong.]
...I'm glad we scouted Ferio.

<roar>

P.38
FERIO
You idiot!  Why are you just standing there!!?

<clink>

HIKARU
Fuu-chan!!

UMI
Fuu!!

P.39
HIKARU
Fuu-chan...

FUU
.... thank you.  You saved me...
<Ferio sighs>
But... that was the first time that anyone has called me an idiot.

FERIO
You... you can make a cute smile.

P.40
FERIO
You looked kinda malicious a while back, but that was really cute.
<Blood rises to Fuu's head>

UMI 
Are you all right?

HIKARU
Fuu-chan!!

FUU
I'm all right.

P.41
[FERIO: Did that monster die for real?
 MOKONA: Puu puu]

HIKARU
Eh!?

<flash>

The Exit!!

P.42
UMI
Yay!!

FUU
Let's hurry.

UMI
Now I can be the magical girl I always wanted to be!!

[MOKONA: PPPUUUUUUUUU!!!!!!!]

P.43
HIKARU
Mokona?

ALCIONE
<grin>
<<Araia>>!!
{Ice rush shoot}

<roar>

UMI
Kyyaaaaaaa!!

P.44
FUU
Umi-san!!

P.45
HIKARU
Umi-chan!!

P.46
HIKARU
Umi-chan!!
Umi-chan!!

ALCIONE
Hohoho, I got tired of waiting for you...The Magic Knight to-bes from
Another World.

FERIO
Another World!?

P.47
HIKARU
Umi-chan!
Umi-chan!!

FUU
... It's a deep wound...
We have to get her to a doctor soon...

<Hikaru grits her teeth>

P.48
<rustle>

ALCIONE
Since I couldn't use magic in the Forest of Silence, I decided to wait
here... for you to find the exit and come out of the forest unharmed.
So I can pay you back for what you did to me earlier!

P.49
HIKARU
Fuu-chan... please look after Umi-chan...

FUU
Hikaru-san!

HIKARU
How dare you...Umi-chan...

ALCIONE
You seem to be able to use magic.  But can you defeat me, Alcione, a
student of Guru Clef and one of the sorcerers serving Princess Emeraude?

P.50
HIKARU
Of Princess Emeraude!?

FUU
... a student of Clef-san...

HIKARU
Why are you trying to get in our way if you're one of the Princess's
sorcerers?  Haven't you heard from Clef that Cephiro is in danger!?

ALCIONE
Of course I know.
But what does that have to do with anything?

P.51
HIKARU
Princess Emeraude is the Pillar that supports Cephiro, right!?
And she was kidnapped by Sol Zagato, and....

FERIO
So it is true.

ALCIONE
And I work for that Zagato.

HIKARU
Why do you work for him!?

P.52
ALCIONE
Because I love him.
<<Arailu>>!!
{Ice, spear, throw, shoot}

<flash>

FUU
Hikaru-san!! Look out!!

P.53
<thud>
<hop>
<tumble>

ALCIONE
My, how nimble.
But it won't work this time.

P.54
ALCIONE
I will cover you in blood like the young lady over there.

HIKARU
You hurt Umi-chan....

P.55
<roar>

HIKARU
Umi-chan, Fuu-chan, and I are fighting together to save Cephiro.  They are
my dearest Comrades and you...

P.56
FUU
Hikaru-san...

<roar of flames>

P.57 
HIKARU
<<Blazing Arrow>>!!

<whoosh>

P.58-59
<WHOOSH>

P.60
ALCIONE
<<Cresta>>!!
{Shell, circle, defense, remove}

<screech>

[dammit.]
... Her magical power has increased since the last time...

P.61
FUU
The strength of her Will...
Hikaru-san was angered by the injury of Umi-san; the resulting strength of
her Will has caused a "power-up" in her magic.

$(CLEF)
$Magic is used by the Heart.
$The power of the Will determines the strength/weakness, the
$success/failure of all Magic.

P.62
<hiss>

ALCIONE
To be able to increase the magical powers so much in such a short amount
of time...  You really are a Magic Knight.
But you still are not at a level with which you can defeat me.

<roar>

P.63
ALCIONE
<<Astora>>!!
(Ice, flow, cut, blade)

<flash>

P.64
FERIO
That sorcerer... she's serious this time.
You, and that little one... neither of you are asking me for help.

FUU
I have made you promise to come with us to the exit from the Forest of
Silence.  It would be selfish of us to ask for any more than that.

P.65
FUU
This is... our battle.

P.66
UMI
.... Ummm....

FUU
Umi-san!  Are you all right!?

UMI
... Hikaru... is she...

FUU
She is fighting that black-clad old lady right now.

P.67
<roar>

P.68
UMI
... It's too dangerous for Hikaru to fight by herself...

FUU
Don't move!  If you move now, your wounds...!!

UMI
... but... Hikaru....
I have to help Hikaru...!

FUU
Umi-san...

[MOKONA: Puu]

UMI
Mokona... are you worried about us...?

P.69
[MOKONA:  Puu PUU]

UMI
Your real master... that conceited magician...
I wish I had properly learned Magic from him...
Then.... I would have been able to save Hikaru...
Magic to save Hikaru...
I want Magic...
I want.... Magic!!

<glow>

P.70
FUU
The jewel on Mokona-san's forehead....!

<glow>

FERIO
It was red a moment ago, and now it's blue!

P.71
FUU
Umi-san!!

FERIO
What!?

CLEF
%.... Umi....
%Can you hear me, Umi....?

UMI
... Clef...?

CLEF
%Yes.
%I am talking directly to your heart through Mokona.
%Can you hear me?

UMI
I hear you.

P.72
CLEF
%You wished to help Hikaru.
%You wished to have Magic to help Hikaru.

UMI
I want to help...
I want Magic to be able to help Hikaru!!

<glow>

CLEF
%Can you feel it?
%That Power in you...

P.73
CLEF
%...is a Power different from before...?

UMI
I feel it...
Something is burning in my heart...
A Phrase...
A Phrase comes to mind...

P.74
CLEF
%That is your Magic.

ALCIONE 
<<Arailu>>!!

P.75
UMI
<<Water dragon>>!!

<Rushing of water>

P.76
<roar>

ALCIONE
Kyyaaaaaaaa!!!

P.78
<hisssss>
<clang>

FUU
Umi-san!!!

HIKARU
Umi-chan!!
Umi-chan!
Umi-chan!!

UMI
... Hikaru... are you all right?

HIKARU
Yup!  Because you helped me!  I'm all right because you helped me with
your Magic!

UMI
I'm glad...
<grin>
I just couldn't leave you alone, Hikaru... you're cute like a little
sister... and so determined...

P.79
UMI
Fuu... are you okay, too...?

FUU
Yes.  Your magic defeated the enemy, Umi-san.

UMI
I'm glad...  I don't know what is going to happen to us... but we got
called here to Cephiro together, and...

HIKARU
Umi-chan!
Umi-chan!

FUU
... Umi-san has helped us.  She has used Magic... to help us.
Now it is my turn...
Light came out of Mokona-san's forehead, and Umi-san became able to use
magic...

P.80
FUU
Mokona-san... please give me Magic.  I want to help Umi-san.  Please give
me Magic so I can help her!!

HIKARU
Fuu-chan!!

FERIO
This time, the jewel turned green!

CLEF
%.... Fuu...

FUU
... Are you Clef...?

CLEF
%Yes.

FUU
....Please teach me the Magic.

P.81
CLEF
%You already have the Magic within you.

FUU
I see a Phrase coming from the bottom of my heart...

CLEF
%Yes, that is your Magic.  You three acquired Magic through the Heart
%that cared about your comrades.
%Do not forget that here in Cephiro, the Power of the Will is the
%strongest.
%The Heart which Believes becomes true Power in Cephiro.

P.82
FUU
<<Healing wind>>

<breeze>

P.83
HIKARU
Umi-chan!!!

FUU
The Heart which Believes... becomes true Power...

P.84
HIKARU
Umi-chan!
Thank God... I'm so glad!  It doesn't hurt anymore?  Are your wounds fine
now?

UMI
I'm all right, Hikaru.
Thanks, Fuu.

FUU
Oh no, if we didn't have your magic, Umi-san, we all might have been
killed by that old lady.
Thank you, Umi-san.

P.85
FUU
Thank you too, Hikaru-san... for fighting against that old lady.

<Hikaru shakes her head>

HIKARU
We are comrades.  Although we just met, we are all alone in Cephiro.  We
are the dearest of comrades.  If I was summoned to Cephiro by myself, I
might have been lonely.. but I can try my best with you because you guys
-- Umi-chan and Fuu-chan -- have been with mme.

P.86
HIKARU
Just the thought that I have comrades makes me full of Power.

<gasp>

P.87
HIKARU
...maybe I'm the only that feels that way...
Maybe you're annoyed that I thought you were comrades...
<blush>
I mean, I haven't asked either of you, and I just assumed that we were...

[UMI, FUU: <chuckle>]

UMI
Hikaru, you're a "good girl" -- we don't see many like you these days.

FUU
Really.  I am happy that I have such a cute comrade.

P.88
[HIKARU: Meow]

UMI
When I thought about helping you, Hikaru, I was full of power.  When I was
thinking that I had to save an important comrade from the evil hands of
that old lady, courage just welled up and those Words came out of my mouth
naturally.

HIKARU
Umi-chan...

UMI 
I don't know what's what, and it's unjust that the three of us have to go
through all of this, but...

P.89
UMI
Let's do our best to go back to Tokyo, where we came from.  I give my best
regards for our future, Hikaru.

FUU
I give you my best regards also.

HIKARU
... Fuu-chan...

P.90
FERIO
I thought something was funny about you.

HIKARU
Ferio...

FERIO
You guys were those Legendary Magic Knights.

HIKARU
We didn't mean to trick you...

FERIO
You were cautious because you didn't know if I was an ally or an enemy.

FUU
... I'm sorry.

P.91
FERIO
You were wise in doing so.

HIKARU, UMI, FUU
EH?!

FERIO
Listening to your conversation from a while ago, it looks as though you
guys have decided to save Princess Emeraude by joining forces.

HIKARU
Fuu-chan, Umi-chan.  I want to tell Ferio the truth.
We came from Tokyo.

P.92
HIKARU
The floor of the Tokyo Tower gave way suddenly, and when we came to, we
were in Cephiro.
And...We met a sorcerer named Clef, and he told us to save this
World... Cephiro.

FERIO
You met Guru Clef, the top sorcerer in Cephiro?

UMI
That old man was a celebrity.

FUU
It seems that way.

[CLEF: Who's the old man!?]

FERIO
Then, the one that summoned Hikaru's party...

P.93
HIKARU
Clef said it was Princess Emeraude.

FERIO
You were saying earlier that the one that kidnapped Princess Emeraude was
Sol Zagato.

HIKARU
Clef told us that too.

FERIO
This finally makes sense.  Why there are monsters roaming about Cephiro, a
world that is supposed to be peaceful.  Why there have been strange
phenomena in a world where the weather is supposed to be eternal spring.

P.94 
UMI
Now it's your turn.  We told you who we are.  Who are you?

FERIO
... an acquaintance of Princess Emeraude.
So the Legend was true...

FUU
What is this Legend?  I noticed that both Clef-san and Presea-san
mentioned it, but I had not gotten around to asking what it was.

FERIO
It's old folklore...  a Legend that doesn't have a correct way of
retelling and is told by word of mouth.

P.95
FERIO
When something happens to the Pillar of Cephiro, those who are summoned
from Another World become the Legendary Magic Knights and fight using the
Power of the Mashin.

P.96
HIKARU
That reminds me.  Clef also said that we had to revive the Mashin to
become the Magic Knights.

UMI
But... why do the Legendary Magic Knights have to be those from Another
World?
Aren't there a lot of strong people like you here in Cephiro?

FERIO
That was what I didn't understand either.
So I was going to get Eskudo at Eterna to see if I could become the
Legendary Knight.

P.97
FUU
By the way, Clef-san said that many sorcerers and fighters fought to save
Princess Emeraude.

FERIO
Quite understandable if the enemy is Sol Zagato.  There's no way you can
win.

UMI
I... is...is he that powerful?

FERIO
Tremendously powerful.

<wobble>

UMI
I can sense an earthquake shattering our determination...

FUU
But if he is that powerful, wouldn't it be worse off to be from Another
World?  Since we don't understand what is common sense in Cephiro...  I
mean, monsters do not roam around the streets in the world that we come
from.  Although in games, the players are always the Heroes.

UMI
Yeah, the story of the Legendary Magic Knights would only exist inside
games.

FERIO
I don't know about that, either.  But it seems as though the Legend is
starting to become reality.

P.98
FERIO
Princess Emeraude, the Pillar of Cephiro, has been abducted by Sol
Zagato.  The current condition of the Princess is unknown right now, but
the Pillar-less Cephiro sees monsters even in the residential districts,
and earthquakes and storms follow one after another.  The Monsters of this
world are the materializations of the Fears of the populace.  The Pillar
supports everything about this World with the Power of her Will.

P.99
FERIO
Princess Emeraude's Heart, which prays for a Cephiro where it is always
peaceful and easy for people to live in, kept Cephiro as a bountiful,
beautiful world free of abnormal weather.
But now... the Princess's Heart seems to be in a condition where she
cannot pray for the welfare of Cephiro.  That is why the sky is stormy,
and the land cries out. 
And so, the populace become enveloped in fear and terror, and that
Negative power of the Heart creates those Monsters.

P.100
HIKARU
Then those monsters...

FERIO
... are all manifestations of the Heart.

$(Clef)
$Willpower is stronger than anything else in this world.

HIKARU
... The Heart...The Heart full of fear and terror...... manifest as those
Monsters....

P.101
FUU
The Mental Powers of humans create Peace, yet those same Powers also bring
Destruction...

UMI
Cephiro... a truly mysterious place.

FERIO
The people are scared.Many sorcerers, knights, and fighters believed that
the reason for this abnormality was that something happened to Princess
Emeraude... and all tried to get to Princess's Castle to save her... but
none came back.

HIKARU
Castle...?

FUU
Then those sorcerers also went into battle to seek a way to become the
Legendary Magic Knights... like you?

FERIO
No...

P.102
FERIO
The only ones that know about the Legendary Magic Knights are only those
who are close to Princess Emeraude, the Pillar of Cephiro.

FUU
Eh?  Then... you are...

FERIO
[Ahahaha--]
But the fact that Princess Emeraude summoned the Legendary Magic Knights
from Another World implies that only those from Another World can become
the Legendary Magic Knights.
[Hmmmmm.....]

<glow>

HIKARU
The jewel on Mokona's forehead...

UMI
...is glowing red, like usual.

P.103
<flash>
[MOKONA: Puu puu]

HIKARU
....it's showing us the way to the Legendary Spring of Eterna.
Ferio!

FERIO
My gift to you.

FUU
But I don't have anything to give you...

P.105 
<Fuu blushes>
[UMI: WHAT---!!?]

FERIO
I got my reward.
We shall meet again soon.

P.106
FERIO
The Legendary Magic Knights.

UMI
Who was he?  He looked so dignified... like a prince...
[What a surprise.]
...um, Fuu!
What's wrong... Fuu!

<Fuu comes out of stupor>

P.107
FUU
N..n..n..n..n.. nothing's wrong.

UMI
You're all red, Fuu.

FUU
E.. e... eh...!?

UMI
Fuu... you...
<grin>

[MOKONA: Puu puu]

HIKARU
Mokona's telling us to get going.

FUU
L.. let's go, Hikaru-san, Umi-san.

<uneasy>

HIKARU
Fuu-chan, we're not going that way.
[This way.]

ALCIONE
Zagato... my lord...

I... I am... sorry...
I did not realize that the Magic Knights had so much power...  but it was
because I was unprepared for such an attack... This time...

ALCIONE
Zagato...
My beloved Zagato...

ZAGATO
Get out of my sight.

ALCIONE
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

P.110
ALCIONE
Help!  Zagato.... Please help!

MINIONS
So shameful...Yes, to lose to children like that...As the Legend goes, the
Magic Knights fight to save Cephiro.

Hey, Zagato.
Let me go.  I want to play with those ladies.

ZAGATO

Mokona says it's right up ahead!

<rustle>

P.114
UMI
Wait... Where in this place is there a Spring?

FUU
... I do not see any bodies of water in the area.

[MOKONA: Puu
 Mokona is feeling that he has done something really good.]

UMI
MOKONA---!!!

<Mokona has a proud air about it.>

P.115
UMI
You DID help me when we fought that old lady.  If Mokona wasn't there,
Clef wouldn't have been able to teach us Magic.  But, this is different
from that!  We are now determined to fight!  So we want to get to the
Legendary Spring of Eterna!  Who told you to guide us to a meadow!?  To a
place where you feel like having a picnic...
[Ooooohhhhh!!]

<A meadow spreads out before them>
<slap slap>

FUU
My, this is a good place to have lunch.

[MOKONA: Puu puu]

UMI
There isn't a Spring here!

HIKARU
... Wait.

P.116
FUU
What is the matter, Hikaru-san?

HIKARU
What is that Line?

UMI
Line?

[A Line, no matter how you look at it.]

FUU
It is a Line.
[Unmistakably, a Line.]

UMI
What is this?

FUU
...I do not understand this... there is only a Line...

P.117
[MOKONA: Puu puu]

HIKARU 
Ah!  Wait, Mokona!

UMI
Why is there a Line in a place like this?

FUU
Well, Cephiro is a strange place.

UMI
Strange is okay, but where is the Legendary Spring of Eterna!?

HIKARU
AAAAAAAHHHHHH!!!!!

UMI
What's wrong, Hikaru

HIKARU
Umi-chan, Fuu-chan... Look!

<umph, umph>

P.118-119
UMI
AAAAAAAAAAAAA!
A Spring!?
This is the Legendary Spring of Eterna!?

P.120
UMI
But there wasn't anything there before...!

HIKARU
It's that Line.

UMI
What?

HIKARU
This Spring looks like a Line unless you look at it from above it.

FUU
I see.  It is two-dimensional... in other words, a flat Spring.

P.121
[MOKONA: Puu puu]

UMI
... So.  Where in this Spring is this Eskudo stuff?  I see the Spring,
but I don't see anything that looks like a metal ore.

HIKARU
... I think it's in here...

UMI
EH!?

P.122
<Umi feels dizzy.>

UMI
How absurd...

FUU
Really... Cephiro is a place full of marvelous things.

UMI
Marvelous just doesn't cut it!  We have to go get the legendary mineral
Eskudo from this weird spring Eterna!  From this spring that has no depth!

FUU
It's not the Weird Spring.  It is the Legendary Spring.

UMI
A spring that looks like a line when you look at it from the side --
calling it the Weird Spring of Eterna is sufficient!
That's it!  From now on, you are the Weird Spring of Eterna!

P.123
FUU
Umi-san... there might be a problem in the future if we change the name
that Cephiro's people have gotten accustomed to...

HIKARU
Waaaa

UMI
What!?  Hikaru!

FUU
Hikaru-san!

HIKARU
Mokona!?
Mokona!!

P.124
UMI
He disappeared...

HIKARU
Mokona!
[Aaaarrrrggghhhhh]
Mokona!

<silence>

FUU
... It looks as though the spring is in here.

UMI
But we don't know how deep it is... how are we going to breathe under
water?

[HIKARU: Waaaa waaaa]

FUU
I don't know...
I guess we'll find out when we go in.

[UMI: So the thread of bad luck continues...]

HIKARU
I'm going in.

UMI
Hikaru...

HIKARU
I think Mokona is telling us that Eskudo, the Legendary Mineral, is in
here.  I decided to become a Magic Knight, so I have to go get Eskudo.

P.125
UMI
... I guess so.

FUU
Let's go.  It's useless to be standing here.

HIKARU
I don't know what's going to happen.  But I'm sure that the three of us
together can do whatever any of us alone can't do!
Let's keep at it!

UMI

Princess Emeraude...?

EMERAUDE
%I am... Emeraude of Cephiro...
%Magic Knights, you must not let sorrow control your heart.

P.150
HIKARU
Princess Emeraude!  Where are you!?

EMERAUDE
%Girls from Another World... Hold your hearts strong... and think...
%Are the things before you something Valuable to you?

HIKARU
He's my best friend!  He was always beside me when I was crying!  He
worried about my wounds when I fell over!  He can't speak human language,
but we understand each other by our Hearts -- he's a valuable friend!!

UMI
They're my parents!  Of course they're important to me!  When I grow up
and start working, I am going to work hard and return everything that Dad
and Mom used to raise me to adulthood!  A child is like a parent's piggy
bank!

P.151
UMI
I plan to remember and store in my heart all the love that my parents gave
me, as well as all the money they spent on my education and nutrition, and
return them the favor little by little!  I can't possibly fight with Dad
or Mom when I haven't even started paying them back!!

FUU
I value myself.  If something happened to me, I would make Father, Mother,
Sister... everyone who loves me very unhappy.  I am still a child, and
thus cannot do anything to all the people that love me.  So being happy is
the one thing that I can do well for all of those people.  So I am
important to me.

EMERAUDE
%Then think.
%Would that Valuable Thing ever hurt you?

P.152
<gasp>

EMERAUDE
%Would your Valuable Things wish to see you wounded, in pain?
%Please think hard...
%And the Legendary Mineral of Eskudo...

UMI
She disappeared...

P.153
HIKARU
It's not him... Hikari wouldn't do this... Hikari is always kind, and
always protected me.  This is not Hikari!!

UMI
Dad or Mom... wouldn't shoot shockwaves at me!

FUU
I will heal these wounds with a healing spell later.

HIKARU
You dared to attack in the shape of Hikari!

UMI
Don't try to screw up a happy family!

If something happened to me, my family would get worried!

Don't worry.

HIKARU
Presea!!

UMI
Why are you here?

FUU
It's nice to be happy about our reunion, but...
if we don't do something fast, we will fall into the Weird Spring of
Eterna, as Umi-san named it.

[Wa wa wa wa...]

PRESEA
You're fine.
<The girls stop moving>
The fact that you can stand on top of Eterna means that you found Eskudo. 

P.164
HIKARU
<gasp>

Oh yeah!  Where did the Eskudo go!?

PRESEA
Look above you.

<shimmer>

Come down, Legendary Magic Knights.  I, Presea, the supreme Pharle of
Cephiro, will make you the ultimate weapons with that Eskudo.

P.165
PRESEA
... A weapon suitable for the Magic Knights.

<chink>

HIKARU
P.. Presea!?

P.167

HIKARU
Presea... it's so beautiful...

UMI
So this is how they make weapons...

FUU
It is an intriguing sight.

P.168
<whoosh>

HIKARU, UMI, FUU
These swords are...

P.169
PRESEA
Those are... the weapons of the Magic Knights.

<glow>

P.171
PRESEA
Made for you, usable only by you... one-of-a-kind weapons.

P.172
<glow>
<whoosh>

HIKARU
The weapons that we borrowed from Presea...

UMI
They left by themselves.

PRESEA
It's because those weapons made with Eskudo are more suitable for you.

P.173
HIKARU
Presea!!
Presea!  Are you okay!?

PRESEA
I... am... fine...  I just used... a little too much of my Heart...

HIKARU
Are you sure!?  Are you really okay!?

P.174
UMI 
Thank you, Presea, for making such wonderful weapons.

FUU
Thank you very much.

PRESEA
You... those guards...

UMI
<gasp>
That's right!  This armor suddenly changed!

FUU
When we got Eskudo in Eterna, the armor started shining, and changed to
this shape.

HIKARU
You too, Fuu-chan!?

UMI
Hikaru -- you too!?

PRESEA
Those guards... are from Guru Clef?

<nod>

P.175
PRESEA
... Guru Clef equipped you with Evolutionary Guards -- like your
Evolutionary Weapons, they will change as you grow.

HIKARU
Grow...

UMI
That reminds me.  You said that Eskudo was the only mineral that makes
Evolutionary Weapons in Cephiro...

PRESEA
Yes.
Weapons made with Eskudo grow based on the strength of the Heart of the
weapon's owner.  Those are not the Final Forms of your weapons either.

HIKARU
This isn't what the real sword looks like...?

PRESEA
Yes.  The strength of your Hearts will allow them to Grow.

P.176-177
PRESEA
The Heart determines everything in Cephiro.
The quality of the weapons, the success of magic spells, and.......
even the Future.

P.178
PRESEA
I made each of you a suitable weapon... because I have grown to like you.
I want you to stay strong... so I made those weapons with that Heart.

HIKARU
Presea... Thank you.

PRESEA
Hikaru.

HIKARU
What?

PRESEA
Umi, Fuu.
Don't... die.

P.179
HIKARU, UMI, FUU
Okay!

[MOKONA: Puu]
<flash>
<roar>

P.180
HIKARU
Waaaaaa!!

[MOKONA: Puu puu] 

UMI
I wonder if he wants us on that thing...

FUU
Oh, Umi-san, you understand what Mokona-san is saying.
[How terrific!]

UMI
If he is telling us to eat this, even an even-tempered person like myself
would get slightly excited.

[MOKONA: Puu puu!!]

HIKARU
He's telling us to get on!

PRESEA
Go, Magic Knights.
To become Magic Knights, you must revive the Mashin.  And, the weapons
that you hold are also Keys to reviving the Mashin.

P.181
HIKARU
A Key... to revive the Mashin...

FUU
I wonder what these Mashin are...

PRESEA
Mokona will lead you to the place where the Mashin are kept.

UMI
This thing's our navigator... again?

[MOKONA: Puu puu
         Leave it to me!]
<Mokona looks proud>
<whoosh>

P.182
HIKARU
It disappeared into the ornament again...

FUU
It's convenient that we don't have to carry it around.

UMI
Such a thing would be convenient at school... to be able to put your bag,
your PE clothes, and everything else in here...

FUU
But we have to get back to Tokyo before we start going to school again.

PRESEA
Be on your way, Hikaru, Umi, Fuu.

HIKARU
But I'm still worried about you, Presea.

PRESEA
I'm fine.  Now, be on your way.

HIKARU
But...!

PRESEA
The food that you gave me, Hikaru, was delicious!

HIKARU
Really!?

P.183
[HIKARU: I think I had one more around here...]

PRESEA
I want another one when you come back.

HIKARU
Okay!  We'll come back no matter what!  We'll come back with the weapons
you made us all grown up.

PRESEA
I'll be waiting.

P.184
<flap>

HIKARU
Presea, Thank you!

UMI
Thank you, Presea.

FUU
Thank you very much.

UMI
When I get back, I'll bake you a cake.  I'm good at it.

PRESEA
What's a cake?

UMI
It's food.

FUU
Would there be ingredients to make cake in Cephiro?

UMI
I'll do something with my Heart!

PRESEA
I'll be looking forward to it.

HIKARU
Presea, thank you very, VERY much!

P.185
PRESEA
Mokona, take care of those three!

[MOKONA: Puuuuuuuu!]

%Princess Emeraude... please continue to protect those girls from another

P.186
PRESEA
%Hikaru... Umi... Fuu... Please return...

UMI
Well, where are we going now, Mokona?

[MOKONA: Puu puu]

MOKONA---!!!

[MOKONA: Puu puu]

No more "Puu puu"s!  Where are we going now!?

[Mokona has blank facial expression]

You---!!

FUU
Umi-san, your blood pressure will rise if you get too excited.  Mokona-san
knew the way to the Forest of Silence, and this vehicle came out of the
jewel on Mokona-san's forehead, and we were able to talk to Clef-san
through Mokona-san.

P.187
FUU
So Mokona-san must be thinking about a lot of things too.

UMI
This thing... thinking about things...?  What part of this face looks like
it's thinking!?

FUU
Oh?  It has an expression of deep thought.

[MOKONA: Puu puu
 UMI: <sigh>]

HIKARU
Oh!

UMI
What, Hikaru?

HIKARU
This scenery...

FUU
What about the scenery? 

HIKARU
Look carefully.  This is the same thing we saw when we first came to
Cephiro.  The Ocean.  The mountain that floats in the sky.    And...
a volcano.

P.188
UMI
I don't remember clearly because of the surprise from when the floor of
the Tokyo Tower gave way... but it is the same scenery.

HIKARU
This is Cephiro... It's beautiful.

<Mechanical sound>

UMI
What!?

<falling sound>

HIKARU
Waaaaaaaaa

UMI
It's falling!  It's falling at a tremendous speed!

FUU
At this rate, it looks like we'll be crashing on the surface of the
ocean.

UMI
Mokona--!  Do something!

[MOKONA: Puu puu]

SD Umi
Did you all like Magic Knight RayEarth volume 2?

SD Fuu
Umi-san had trouble, being attacked by that "weird old lady" in the
beginning...

[Hikaru: fuming]

SD Umi
Well, when you're Young, you have a lot of hardships.
[See, we're young, right?]

SD Fuu
I guess so.  I wonder if this is also an obstacle to overcome to become
the Magic Knight.
[We are still learning.]

SD Hikaru
I wonder how many enemies like that old lady there are left...

P.199
SD Hikaru
But it wasn't all enemies!  We also met reliable allies!!

SD Umi
[Fuu?  You're blushing.]
I wonder who that Ferio guy was... his flamboyance matched him -- he
seemed like a prince.

SD Hikaru
The new enemy-ish kid Ascot...  I wonder what's going to happen to us now?

[If you aren't following along in Nakayoshi, look forward to vol. 3.]

CLAMP is pleased to have created the designs for an anime-only character,
Inova.  Please check it out on your TV!

SD Ookawa
Hikaru, Umi, and Fuu, as drawn by Ishida Atsuko, are very cute!

SD Nekoi
By the way, is everyone familiar with "computer communication" {e-mail}?

[SD Fuu: Yes, I know.]

SD Satsuki
"Computer communication" is a system where one uses a personal computer or
a word-processing typewriter and a modem to trade various information over
the phone lines

P.201
SD Satsuki
CLAMP also does "computer communication".
[All of us have ID's, too.]

SD Nekoi
One of those is called Nifty-Serve.

SD Ookawa
There is a forum for Kodansha, called KSHOP, on Nifty-Serve.

SD Mokona Apapa
This is an electronic store, where you can find information on various
books printed by Kodansha, as well as buy books over the Net.

SD Ookawa
One corner of KSHOP is called "Hideki no oheya" {Hideki's Room}.  This is
the corner of Yamanouchi-san, who is the editor in charge of RayEarth.

SD Mokona Apapa
If you are on Nifty-Serve, please look at it sometime!

SD Hikaru, Umi, Fuu
WE are the main characters of Magic Knight RayEarth!  Out, out!!

Cephiro reflects exactly what is going on within the Princess's Heart.

Although younger than Clef, she is pretty old.  Nevertheless, the Princess

a child, but is 745 years old.  He is the supreme Yil (i.e. Guru), but he
seems to have a short temper.

        A Pharle's job is to create weapons for all uses -- for battles
and for ceremonies.  Presea is the supreme Pharle, and she is the only one
that can create weapons from the Legendary Mineral Eskudo.  But, sometimes
she does not listen to what others say well, and plays with her own
imagination... that's the troubling thing about her.

        A mysterious shounen that appears at the Forest of
Silence. (Although the actual age may be different from how old they
appear to be in Cephiro.)  He seems to be quite a swordsman, but there are
many secrets about him as of now.  He uses a sword that is about as big as
his own height.

Q.2 -- What are Hikaru, Umi, and Fuu doing about food in Cephiro?

P.1
UMI
Oh? What's wrong, Hikaru?

HIKARU
I'm hungry...

<stomach growls>
[out of energy]

FUU
Come to think of it... we haven't eaten anything since this morning.

UMI
If only we had ingredients...
But then, I can only make confectioneries.

HIKARU
Confectioneries!?  Umi-chan, can you make ice cream, too!?
[I love ice cream!]

<Hikaru wags tail>

P.2
FUU
How do you do taste tests for confectioneries if you yourself do not like
sweet food, Umi-san?

UMI
I get my parents or my classmates to eat them, and ask them later what
they thought.

[HIKARU: I'm so hungry, I'm sad.]

HIKARU, FUU
%...does that mean, a guinea pig?

FUU
If I could go back to Tokyo now, I would like to eat "tessa".

UMI
What's "tessa"?

FUU
The sashimi of fugu {blowfish}.

UMI
Fuu... you have old-fashioned tastes.

FUU
yes?
[I also like ika-no-shiokara {salt-pickled squid} and mozuku {?}.]

UMI
That reminds me... what does Mokona like?

P. 3
UMI
What does Mokona eat?  I haven't seen him eat anything.

FUU
Maybe he is eating when we don't realize it.
While we're not looking...
Like this...

<Mokona opens mouth>
<Mokona swallows>

Eating like this...
[fufufu
 HIKARU: no...]

UMI
Scary.  It's too scary.
<brrrrr>

HIKARU
Let's ask Clef!!

[Mokona: What--?]

<glow>

CLEF
What?  Food?
Your share will come out of the jewel on Mokona's forehead.  What?  Food
for Mokona?

P.4
CLEF
Mokona doesn't eat anything.

[HIKARU, UMI, FUU: Eehhhh!?]
<glow>
[MOKONA: Puu puu]
<pop pop>

UMI
<sob sob>
So pitiful!  Not being able to eat is like not knowing half of life's
pleasures!!!

<hughughug>

HIKARU
Thanks, Mokona.  It's really good.

FUU
Thank you very much.

[But, Mokona is really happy because he's getting a hug.]
