HIKARU
Waaa! 

FUU
Kya! 

ASCOT
[Kyahaha]
You are so weak...What was Alcione doing, to lose to such weak girls? 

HIKARU  
Alcione... then you are her ally!?

P.6
ASCOT 
Ally?
[Kyahaha] 
She's not an ally... such an old lady.

Fire magic...

HIKARU
<<Blazing Arrow>>!!

<Flash>

P.8
<gulp>
<monster growing> 

HIKARU
The spell had no effect!? 

FUU
.. The monster might have attributes of fire.

HIKARU
Fire...?

FUU 
Fire magic on a Fire monster is like pouring oil into a fire. 

<roar>

HIKARU
No...!
Fuu-chan... then your magic...

FUU
My magic seems to be affiliated with Wind.... 
If you blow wind into a fire...

HIKARU
It makes things burn more...

P.9
FUU 
What counters a fire is...

<roar> 

HIKARU & FUU
WATER!!

<hop hop> 

ASCOT
Come on, you have to play with my friend!  

HIKARU
... ummmmm.....

UMI 
Hikaru! 
Fuu! 
Hikaru... Fuu... 

P.14 
ASCOT 
Weak... they're weak...  I hate weak people. 
That's why I don't like Alcione... that old hag.
She lost so easily to weak people like you.
That's why Zagato erased her.

UMI 
You hurt Hikaru and Fuu.

P.15
ASCOT
Go!  Get that girl too! 

UMI

[Oh!]

P.21

UMI
Kyaa! 

<whoosh>

ASCOT
You're doing pretty well.  

UMI
%Oh no!  I am getting farther away from Hikaru and Fuu! 

Hikaru!  Fuu!  Answer me!

P.22
UMI
Hikaru! 
Fuu! 

ASCOT
<grin>
Grab those girls!

UMI
Hikaru--!
Fuu--!! 

P.23
ASCOT 
Kyahahaha
These girls are like dolls. 
<grasp>
I think I will have them play with my friends.  

UMI
Stop!! 

SELECE
%Show me thy powers.  Show me the strength of thy Heart that makes thee 
%worthy of becoming a Legendary Magic Knight. 

UMI
The strength of my Heart..... 

P.24 
ASCOT 
Those girls are weird.  They might die soon from their wounds, but they 
used magic to help you. 
<Giggle>
They're stupid. 

UMI
<gritting teeth>
Stupid... you say....? 

ASCOT
They're stupid.  Only stupid people get hurt to protect others.
[Kyahahaha] 

UMI 
.. Apologize. 

<whoosh>

ASCOT
Did you say something? 

UMI
<<Water Dragon>>!! 

P.25

UMI
I said, apologize. 

ASCOT
Ma...

<<Maxima>>!

<Slash>

[WAAAAAA!] 

P.26
UMI 
Apologize! 

ASCOT
Wh, why do I have to apologize!?

UMI
You insulted my friends!

ASCOT
Friends? 

UMI
Yes!  Hikaru and Fuu are my dearest friends and incomparable comrades!  I 
will not allow you to insult them! 

ASCOT
Friends....?

[MONSTER: Grrrrr.....]

P.27
UMI
<<Sapphire Waterspout>>!!

<Roar> 
[MONSTER: Gyaaaaaaa]

ASCOT
AAAAA!!  He was my friend too!  How could you!? 

UMI
Friend?

ASCOT
Yeah!  That creature was my friend! 

<Slap>

UMI
How can you make your friends attack other people!?

P.28
UMI
Is it okay for us to hurt or kill your friends!? 

ASCOT  
It's not okay!! 

UMI
Then, you understand why I get mad when you hurt my friends, right!!? 
Aren't you sad when your friends get hurt!?  You feel like you need to 
help them when they are in trouble, right!? 
Then let go of MY friends!! 

P.29 
UMI
Hikaru!  Fuu!  Are you all right!?
Those creatures are your friends...? 

ASCOT
Yeah.  But everyone says that these guys aren't my friends because they 
look funny... they tell me that I can't be friends with them because they 
are monsters... Nobody realizes that these guys are really kind... nobody 
understands... 
<hic>
<sob>

UMI
I understand. 

ASCOT
Eh...? 

P.30 
UMI
They're worried about you.  Like how I get worried about Hikaru and Fuu, 
they are worried about you. 
Say, what's your name?

ASCOT
<slightly scared>
A... Ascot. 

UMI
<scratches head>
Huh? Muscat? 
[That's a tasty name.]
{muscat grapes are yummy.... :) } 

ASCOT 
Ascot!!

UMI
Okay.  Ascot.  Do you hate us?

ASCOT 
um... uh... I don't hate you... 

UMI
Then why did you attack us?

ASCOT
Because Zagato... 

UMI
Zagato!? 

P.31
ASCOT
He said it would be troublesome if you became Magic Knights... 

UMI
Are you a comrade of Zagato? 

ASCOT
No way.

UMI
Then why!?  Why are you doing what Zagato says!? 

ASCOT
.. a while ago, I got a messenger from the castle, and he said Zagato 
wanted to see me.  Because I'm a Bal, I thought I was called to summon 
something at the castle!  ... but Princess Emeraude's Sol Zagato wanted 
my help. 
{Bal: RE term for a summoner.  "Shoukanshi".}

UMI 
And that's the only reason you're siding with Zagato!? 

ASCOT 
[waaaa----n]
But he said I could be with my friends!  He said I could live in the 
castle as long as I wanted! 

P.32
ASCOT
Everyone said they hated my friends!  They said to get out of their way!  
No matter where I went, they treated me like a nuisance! 

UMI
Have your friends ever caused any trouble to ordinary people?  Like break 
something or hurt someone...?

ASCOT
Never!  They never hurt anyone or anything unless I tell them to! 

UMI
Then be proud of them! 
<Ascot looks with curiosity> 
Your friends have scary appearances but are good creatures, right!?  What 
are you going to do if YOU don't trust them!?  If there's nothing wrong, 
you have to brave through all the nasty things people say, and hold your 
head high! 
If you follow Zagato and make them do bad things, they are really going 
to be bad creatures! 
You're going to turn them into bad creatures!  Do you want that to 
happen!? 

P.33 
ASCOT 
... no.... 

UMI
I only met these two a short while ago, but they are dear friends.  They 
are comrades that I can be proud of.  When I am with them, I can become 
stronger.  I can try harder.  I like myself more and more each minute. 
You have to think about what you can do to make your friends Happy, too. 

ASCOT
.. I'm sorry.

UMI
And I'm sorry for attacking your friends.
<grin> 

P.34

P.35
UMI 
The armor changed again!  And the sword... 
.. a dragon!? 

SELECE
Legendary Magic Knight -- I do approve of the strength of thy Heart, with 
which thou believest in thy friends. 

<glow>

PP.36-37
<roar> 

P.38
UMI
A robot... 

HIKARU
mmmmm.....
[mew? 
 FUU: when did this happen?] 

SELECE
However, thy Heart is not yet ready to Wear me. 
When thou hast awoken to thy true powers as a Magic Knight, I will appear 
before thee again. 

P.39
<glow>
<whoosh>
<hissssss>

UMI
It... disappeared...
[that huge thing....  
 HIKARU & FUU: I saw that...] 

HIKARU 
That... was a dragon...? 

FUU
It looks like Mashin were actually enormous robots. 

UMI
<gasp>
Hikaru!  Fuu!  You guys all right? 

[HIKARU, UMI, FUU: Kya kya]

P.40
ASCOT 
.. um.... 

<Hikaru and Fuu are surprised>

UMI
It's okay, Hikaru, Fuu. 

[HIKARU: mew?]

ASCOT
I... I'm sorry.

<Glow>

ZAGATO
One of the Mashin have revived... 

P.41
<waterfall>

MINION (Caldina)
Ascot is still a child.  I'm not surprised that he couldn't finish 'em 
off.  That means it's my turn... 
<splash> 
..the turn for the super-cute, bodacious Caldina!
[I'll take 'em on!] 

P.42 
<bubble bubble> 

HIKARU 
I hope Ascot is okay... I mean, leaving him under the sea like that... 

UMI
We told him that we would take him back to the surface, but he declined, 
saying that we were probably in a hurry... 

FUU
He was being kind.  It is true that we are in a hurry. 

UMI
If we beat Zagato.... would Ascot and his friends be able to live in 
peace...? 

HIKARU 
Umi-chan... 

<smile>

P.43
UMI
I'll ask Clef, that conceited old guy that looks like a kid, if he knows 
of any place where Ascot can live with his friends.  He should know some 
place!  After all, he's been living for 746 years! 

HIKARU
Yeah! 

FUU
[ohohoho] 
I don't think a magician is a real estate broker. 

<hop>
[MOKONA: puu puu]

UMI
MOKONA--!!!
This time I demand an explanation! 

[MOKONA: puu?] 

Why do you disappear each and every time we get into a battle?  Do you 
enjoy watching us in trouble, by any chance!? 

[FUU: Ohohohoho]

P.44
UMI
What, what's wrong?

[MOKONA: mmmmmmmmmmm]
<Kiss>
<boing boing boing boing {Hikaru and Fuu bounce around}>

MOKONA---!! 

[Mokona: puu puu] 

I'm not letting you get away with it this time!!  I'm going to figure out 
what the insides of that fluffy body of yours are like! 

<Slap>
[HIKARU: awawa...]

P.45
<running around>
[HIKARU, UMI: kyaaa kyaaa kyaaa]

FUU
Oh my, oh my, we are high up.

<The girls stop> 
[UMI: eh....?] 

See, we have climbed to quite a height. 

UMI
[KYAAAA!  When did we get airborne?] 
<wind howls> 

Wait!  We're high up!  We're REALLY high up!! 

<Hikaru, Umi, and Mokona are dizzy> 
[pointer: Mokona thinks that it is a new game that the girls are 
playing.] 
<roar>

FUU
<giggle>
Yes, really.

UMI
Mokona!
This thing better be all right!  It won't be funny if we fall off! 

<Pat> 

FUU
It is all right.

P.46
FUU 
If we fall from this height, we would pass out relatively soon, and we 
would be able to put halos on our heads before we feel any pain. 
[Like this.] 

<Hikaru flaps her wings>
<roar>

HIKARU
Look!

P.47
HIKARU 
It's the floating mountain that we saw when we first came to Cephiro...

<wind>

UMI
Fuu! 
The wind! 

<Wind howls>

HIKARU 
Fuu-chan! 

FUU
This is the Wind Shrine...
There is... a Mashin inside... 

HIKARU
Fuu-chan... 

P.48
<Fuu floats>

HIKARU
Fuu-chan! 

UMI
Fuu---! 

HIKARU
Fuu-chan---!! 

[MOKONA: puu!] 

Mokona!  Are you telling me not to follow her?  Because Fuu-chan has 
something to do? 

[MOKONA: puu] 

P.49
UMI
Is Fuu really all right!?  It looked like she was someone else! 

HIKARU
You were like that too, Umi-chan.  In the shrine under the sea... 

UMI
What are you talking about?

<roar> 

P.50
UMI 
Hyaaaaaaa! 
This mountain is really floating in the sky!  If you do fall off from 
here, you will be in "angel mode" before you know it. 
<shudder>

HIKARU
This is... the Wind Shrine that Fuu-chan was talking about...
There is a Mashin in here... like the Mashin that went inside Umi-chan's 
chest ornament... 

CALDINA 
I wasn't expecting you to come this early! 

HIKARU & UMI
Who is that!? 

CALDINA
My, my...

<flap>

P.51
CALDINA
You're bad girls, to keep such a beautiful and wonderful person waiting 
for so long! 

UMI
Hey, isn't that the Osaka dialect...?

HIKARU 
..mmmmmmmm..... yeah....

UMI
The language structure of Cephiro allows for the Osaka dialect?  Or is 
there an Osaka in Cephiro? 
[You makin' dough? Ya, bit by bit.] 

CALDINA
I'm Caldina.  What are your names, ladies? 

HIKARU
Hi... Hikaru Shidou. 

UMI
I'm Umi Ryuuzaki. 

CALDINA
Hikaru-shidou? 
Umi-ryuuzaki?
Those are some funky names... 

P.52
UMI
[Ooooohhhh!!] 
Well, excuse me!

CALDINA
What's the name of the other lady?

HIKARU
The other....?

UMI
You mean Fuu!
You know where Fuu is!?

CALDINA
So the other lady is Fuu-chan?

HIKARU
You know Fuu-chan!?

CALDINA
Yeah, I know her.

UMI
Where is she!?  Tell us!

CALDINA
<waves hand>
It's okay.  It's okay.  I'll show you where she is soon.

HIKARU
Thank you!

<Umi sighs in relief>

CALDINA
<scratches head>
Well, I don't know what to say when you thank me so sincerely...

P.53
CALDINA
Coz I'm....

<whoosh>

.. working for Zagato.

HIKARU
%Zagato!?

P.54-55
MASHIN (Windam)
Legendary Magic Knight.

<wind>

The one who hath come here, to this Wind Shrine, in order to Wear me.

<wind>

My name is Windam.
I am a legendary Mashin that lies here, waiting for the Magic Knight.

P.56
FUU
.... a bird.....
A bird... that has four wings......

<footsteps>

Hikaru-san.  Umi-san.
The Mashin has spoken to me.  See there...

<slash>
[Kyaaaaaaaa]

P.57
FUU
U.... Umi-san..... why.......

Hikaru-san!?

<slam>

CALDINA
Aaa-hahahahaha
You are good at running away, missy.

Oh wait, I forgot to introduce myself.

P.58
<bells>

CALDINA
I'm Caldina.  My actual profession is a dancer, but I am also a Ral -- a 
person that can control other people or give them hallucinations with my 
dancing.
{Ral: RE term for an illusionist.  "Genwakushi".}

FUU
So you are Caldina, the Ral....

CALDINA
Ooo, a polite missy.  I like ya very much.
Anyway, I'm controlling the two girls over there.  And I told them to 
kill you, missy.

FUU
... then you are also affiliated with Zagato... I assume.

CALDINA
To tell the truth.....
He pays me.

P.59
CALDINA
I'm a professional Dancer and Ral, who works as much as I am paid.
I think it's best for people to work earnestly.

That's enough about explaining the situation.
Let's get on with it.

FUU
Hikaru-san!
Umi-san!

<slam>

P.60
<whoosh>

WINDAM
Girl who came to this world to become a Magic Knight....
Show me the Proof that thou art worthy of Wearing me. 

%Thy Powers......
%Show me the strength of thy Heart, that makes thee worthy of 
%becoming a Legendary Magic Knight. 

FUU
The strength of my Heart....

P.61
FUU
Here, in Cephiro, the Heart determines everything.
The Strength of your Faith.... determines one's Future....

P.63

CALDINA
Well done!  I must say that a girl who's gonna be a Magic Knight sure is 
different!  To be able to use such magic!
I'm really impressed.
Let's get on with my next move, then.
It's kinda sad that I only have one customer, but oh well.

<Caldina taps her feet>
<bells>

FUU
%Wha... what is this....?
%My body.....

P.64
FUU
%My body... is moving by itself....!

CALDINA
[Oh!]
It looks like you fell into my spell rather nicely.

<slash>

P.65
<drip>

FUU
Hikaru-san!

<slash>

Umi-san!!

CALDINA
And like that!
I'm so happy that you're following my directions so well!

P.66
CALDINA
"Legendary Magic Knights" sounds so all-mighty, but they're cute little 
missies... this should take care of 'em.
[Ahahaha]

FUU
%Hikaru-san!  Umi-san!  Please wake up!
%At this rate, I might seriously hurt you....
%No, I might kill you!

WINDAM
Thy Powers......

P.67
WINDAM
Show me the strength of thy Heart that makes thee worthy of 
becoming a Legendary Magic Knight. 

FUU
The strength of my Heart....

CALDINA
Well, let's call it a wrap now.

P.68
CALDINA
If it takes me any more effort, I will have to charge for overtime.
So, I will have you get rid of those two with your hands, miss.

<bells>

Oh yeah.  Since you call yourselves Magic Knights, I'll have you finish 
'em with your Magic!

Make the two girls rest in peace with the magic you learned!

FUU
<<Jade....

<thud>

CALDINA
[WAAAAAAAAAAAA
 how can this---!!]

<hisssssss>

Wh.... why....?

FUU
<smile>
It's a matter of your Heart.

CALDINA
Heart...?

P.70
FUU
You are hired by the person who is known as Sol Zagato.  Correct?

CALDINA
Y.. yeah....

FUU
Do you feel that you can "risk your life" for the person that hired you?

CALDINA
[frankly]
My life is mine alone!

FUU
I....
It seems to me that I am thinking that I can "risk my life" for these 
two.  I had not realized this before, but I am certain of it now...
that "I want to use all my powers to save these two" and that "I want to 
save my dear comrades even if it means risking my life".

CALDINA
Risking... your life....?

FUU
Yes.

P.71
CALDINA
You missies been friends from a long time ago or something?
[you guys hung out with each other for 110 years or something?]

FUU
<shakes head>
No.
I did not know them until we were summoned to Cephiro from Tokyo.

CALDINA
Then why!?
Why do you feel that you can risk your life, after such a short time!?

FUU
In your Heart, Time does not matter.
No matter how short the time that we have spent together was, even if I 
don't know too much about them... that just means that there are lots of 
fun times up ahead as we learn more about each other.
I decided that I will fight with these two in my Heart.

CALDINA
Heart.

P.72
FUU
So...
If you are to harm these two, I will have to fight you now.

CALDINA
Ahahaha

<Fuu has a curious look>

I did get some money from Zagato.  But, how much he paid me wasn't enough 
to give him everything I, the powerful and high-grade Caldina, have.
[on top of that, I'm beautiful, wonderful, and bodacious.]

I did hurt the Magic Knights troop, so I did enough work for what he paid 
me.

P.73
CALDINA
Well, the stuff after that, I don't really care.
<patpat>

Well, I think it's gonna be tough on you from here on, but try your best.

FUU
Is that really all right?  I mean, since you were paid, isn't it your job 
to....

CALDINA
Fuu, right?

FUU
Yes.

CALDINA
I thought you looked awesome.
I can't really say if it's good or bad to have something that you can 
"risk your life" for, but I thought that was awesome.
At least there was something there that struck me more than Zagato did.  
I mean, I don't know why he's trying to raise such a riot.

P.74
FUU
Wasn't Sol Zagato's objective.... total control over Cephiro?

CALDINA
It's no use to control this world... now that Princess Emeraude lost her 
powers of Prayer and the world has become unstable and full of monsters.
I asked him once...
"Considering how Cephiro is falling apart, why don't you have Princess 
Emeraude continue her Prayer and give you full control?"
And that guy laughed and said, "I believe there is something more 
precious than Cephiro".......

P.75
FUU
"Something more precious than Cephiro".......?

<glow>

The armor... changed again....  and the sword....
It got.... longer?  The shape hasn't changed, but it is getting longer.

P.76-77
WINDAM
I approve of the strength of thy Heart with which thou believest in thy 
comrades, Legendary Magic Knight.

<whirrrrrrrrrrr>

Thou still art not worthy of Wearing me yet.
I will change my shape and become a part of thee, and await the day to 
come.

P.78
<flash>
<whoosh>

FUU
I wonder if I am going to pilot a gigantic robot in the future.....

Bonus Stage 3

***** Character Profiles.

Right page top: Emeraude.
	She is the Pillar that supported Cephiro with the power of her 
Prayer.  But, she fell in love with Zagato and summoned the Magic Knights 
to have them kill her.  She looked like a young girl (different from her 
actual age) when she was a Pillar;  she looks "grown up" now that she has 
learned of Zagato's death.

Right page bottom: Zagato. (Shinkan / Sol)
	He was in a position where he would support Emeraude's powers as 
Pillar and protect her so that nothing got in the way of her Prayer.  He 
loved Emeraude, and thus for the sake of his own Heart, positioned 
himself against the Magic Knights.  When he was a Sol, he was a calm, 
considerate person who always helped the Princess.

Left page, clockwise from top right:
	Lafarga. (Kentoushi / Dal)
	Ascot. (Shoukanshi / Bal)
	Alcione. (Madoushi / Yil)
	Caldina. (Genwakushi / Ral)

***** Mokona's Secret.

Q3. -- What are Hikaru, Umi, and Fuu's family structures?

P.1
FUU
I have been wondering for a while... but why do you speak like a boy, 
Hikaru-san?

HIKARU
Is it funny?

[FUU: It's cute.
 UMI: Oh!]

UMI
Hikaru, do you have brothers?

P.2
HIKARU
Yup, I have three older brothers.

UMI
I see.
Hikaru's boyish way of speech is a direct effect of her brothers.

HIKARU
What about you, Umi-chan?

UMI
My family?
It's just me, Mama, and Papa.
What about you, Fuu?

<Umi turns towards Fuu>

FUU
I have a father, mother, and one older sister.

UMI
Then Hikaru has the largest family.
A six-member family....

HIKARU
Nope, only five people.

UMI
Eh!?

P.3
HIKARU
We don't have a Dad.

UMI
I'm sorry...

[FUU: oh!]

HIKARU
No.  My dad's a Kendo professional, and is on a quest to be stronger.  I 
think the last time I saw him was when I was in kindergarten.

UMI
Oh, I see.
Don't tell me like it's some comic book and the reason he left for the 
quest was because he lost to you as a kindergartner......

HIKARU
[BINGO, Umi-chan!!]
How did you figure that out, Umi-chan!?

<Umi slips>

FUU
That makes me wonder... Does Mokona-san have a family?

[MOKONA: Puu]

P.4
HIKARU
[OH!]
Let's ask Clef!!

CLEF
What?  Mokona's family?
Mokona is the only Seijyu in Cephiro.  Of course he has no family.
[don't call me up for such stupid things, girls!!]
{This Seijyu is spelled "Holy beast" instead of the "Spirit beast" that 
Fyula, the griffin, et al. were spelled as.}

HIKARU, UMI, FUU
EEEEHHHH!!

UMI
It's so unfortunate... to be all by itself!!

HIKARU
Okay!  We'll be Mokona's brothers!
[Wait!  Since we're girls, that would be sisters!!]

[MOKONA: Puu?]

FUU
[Hohohohoho]
Mokona-san, I'm glad that you now have such an entertaining family!
