>> fine stage

Natsume: Master.

Wataru: Oh, Natsume-kun — so you came to support me! That pleases me indeed~! You are a good boy! Theeere, there, there ♪

Natsume: Stop patting me on the head like a DOG. ... you seem to be taking it rather EASY, Master.

Could it be that there's a chance for you to defeat those rotten fiends of FINE?

Wataru: Is that what it looks like? I have practiced quite a lot for this, but seeing as I do not have the script with me this time, I have gone through very slight hardships!

Even on the very day of the performance, I've become a suspicious person loitering around while constantly checking over my lines over and over again!

A grand stage like this is quite rare, so I cannot afford to fail!

Natsume: You are always SUSPICIOUS, Master. But you're RIGHT — their shows are always like THIS... but this time, it feels like they needlessly spent even more money for this STAGE.

What is this, a WEDDING? HEAVEN?

Wataru: Fufu, fine has likened themselves to angels, after all!

As angels play their trumpets and the ground turns to scorched earth, the final judgement will begin! That is the end — the finale to this story... ☆

But no matter what happens, my duty remains the same! Please watch over Hibiki Wataru's only loss in his lifetime... ☆

Natsume: So it's just as Rei-niisan SAID? You really do plan on LOSING, Master?

Wataru: Hm. I would like it if you called me "nii-san" as you do with the other Oddballs.

Why am I the only one you call "Master"? I have taught you nothing.

Natsume: Even if it wasn't your INTENTION, I learned from you of my own VOLITION. Not magic tricks for CHILDREN, nor scams that make people UNHAPPY...

But true MAGIC, that has survived up to this AGE.

Wataru: No, you did not learn a thing. This entire time, you have simply just been under an evil spell, playing in the underworld after being kidnapped by ghosts.

You are a normal, good child.

So please, put that envelope you brought with you away.

Natsume: ... you are always so SHARP-SIGHTED. If Master can only dance according to a SCRIPT, then all we need to do is prepare a scenario where the Five Oddballs will win against FINE.

I worked really hard coming up with THIS. I even bowed my head to people I HATED, and to people I've looked down on all this TIME...

I ran around EVERYWHERE, and stayed up for so many NIGHTS, desperate...

I looked for the possibility of us reaching a happy ENDING. Don't we, the Five ODDBALLS... don't we have the right to be happy TOO?

Wataru: There is happiness even for "villains". You simply do not understand, as you are still young...

Everything you desperately prepared is a pipe dream that cannot influence this reality.

If we trample upon countless others for the sake of our own happiness... we really will become monsters.

Isn't that right, Rei?

Rei: Ooh, you noticed me. You seriously do have good eyes, Wataru.

Wataru: You simply just stand out — as an actor, it is quite enviable.

I have heard it has gotten rather tumultuous overseas. Are you sure you should be loafing around in a place like this?

Rei: Hey now, Wataru... Who do ya think I am? It's me.

Wataru: That does not give me any explanation, but indeed. You are Sakuma Rei.

Our demon king, and a monster overflowing with more humanity than everybody else in this entire world... I must be a very lucky person to be attended by you.

Rei: As for me, I actually just really wanted to give Natsume a vote here.

Why don't 'cha go and try consider your junior's feelings a lil' more? Even a classy guy like him worked so hard his eyes got all swollen.

Wataru: Yes. With that fact alone, I will be able to quietly accept every single hardship that I have and will face.

Thank you, Natsume-kun. Thank you, Rei. I loved you all.

The days I spent with you, my youth... They sparkled brightly as if... Ah, I am poor at speaking with my own words ♪

Rei: It's cool. I get it, Wataru.

We all get it. Everything.

Wataru: ..... ♪

Rei: C'mon, Natsume. You're just gonna get in the way if you keep standin' there — let's head to the audience seats.

I called Shuu and Kanata too, so I know they'll come to support if they feel like it. It's gonna be the first gathering with all of us in a while ♪

We're gonna watch the end of us Five Oddballs from the special seats.

Natsume: Uhyaa!? Wha— don't just go and carry me away in your ARMS, Rei-niisan! You're always treating me like a CHILD! I'm not finished talking YET!

Rei: Ha ha ha ☆ Thrashin' 'round like that's just pointless~! You can't run from the Demon King!

Wataru: ... fufufu. Even during this kind of ending, everybody is still as rambunctious as always.

And that is how us Five Oddballs, my lifetime brethren, should be. I really did love you all, and that is not a lie.

However... as sad as it is, it is time for a brief parting.

Oh friends of mine, oh the beautiful days of my youth... Farewell. Until we meet again.

when rei calls natsume "classy", the original word here is 洒落者 (sharemono) which is somebody who really takes care of their appearance
