[00:10] ---
    Hey...
[00:14] ---
    Come on in.
[00:15] ---
    You know what?
[00:17] ---
    What is this about?
[00:23] ---
    I heard about something incredibly shocking...
[02:01] ---
    The Gray Witch
[02:44] ---
    The venue is on the other side of that waterway.
[02:47] ---
    Oh, yeah?
[02:49] ---
    What's over there?
[02:51] ---
    A library.
[02:53] ---
    And over there,
[02:54] ---
    there's no worry of running into
    the house mother out on patrol.
[03:33] ---
    To all of you students representing d'Autriche,
[03:36] ---
    I am grateful you accepted the invitation
[03:38] ---
    from
    St. Friedeswiede and are here with us this evening.
[03:42] ---
    The feeling is mutual.
[03:46] ---
    Thank you for inviting us.
[03:51] ---
    Well then, everyone, raise a glass.
[03:54] ---
    We shall now hold the unofficial closing
    party for the Luna Lumiere tournament!
[04:00] ---
    Alcohol...?
[04:01] ---
    How indecent.
[04:02] ---
    It's juice, of course.
[04:06] ---
    It's good.
[04:13] ---
    All of you new students,
[04:15] ---
    even more so than the storied social
    gathering hosted by the academy,
[04:19] ---
    this unofficial closing party that we
    ourselves put on is worth your while.
[04:25] ---
    Take it all in and see for yourselves.
[04:27] ---
    Keira is just lovely!
[04:30] ---
    Much like the official gathering,
    with its long-standing history,
[04:34] ---
    this night party is also a traditional event,
[04:36] ---
    that has been continuously handed
    down by our seniors at the school.
[04:41] ---
    Shenfa is once again looking
    even more beautiful tonight.
[04:58] ---
    I had no idea.
[04:59] ---
    Never imagined that there was
    an unofficial closing party...
[05:02] ---
    Secrets make my heart race with excitement, you know?
[05:09] ---
    You enjoying yourselves?
[05:13] ---
    The two Miss Angels.
[05:22] ---
    You know, my victory this time wasn't a
    show of praise for my actual ability.
[05:26] ---
    I can't call it a true victory.
[05:29] ---
    Next time, I will sear into all of your minds a result that is
[05:33] ---
    clear as day for any who witness it.
[05:36] ---
    I-I see.
[05:38] ---
    With all due respect, Keira...
[05:40] ---
    Speaking as a lover of numerous novels,
[05:44] ---
    talking with so much confidence about a
    match that is still in the distant future
[05:50] ---
    is something one should be most careful about.
[05:53] ---
    Is that so?
[05:55] ---
    Well, when one makes a declaration of their own victory,
[05:57] ---
    it livens things up all the more, right?
[06:05] ---
    That Keira isn't the type to belie expectations, you know?
[06:09] ---
    I wonder how things will turn out next year...
[06:11] ---
    No matter what situation we find ourselves in,
    I'll do a great job of supporting you, Lita.
[06:20] ---
    Thank you, Elli!
[06:30] ---
    It's no use thinking about next year at this time.
[06:34] ---
    Right now, it's okay to just kick
    up your heels for the moment.
[06:38] ---
    You do have a point.
[06:45] ---
    What do you wanna do for fun?
[06:47] ---
    Cards?
[06:48] ---
    A pillow fight would also be a standard way to go.
[06:52] ---
    After all, I'd be too embarrassed to
    do that back inside a dorm room.
[06:54] ---
    Ahem! Shouldn't we be a bit more ladylike?
[07:00] ---
    As far as what's done at times like this,
[07:03] ---
    the answer is... talking about our love lives.
[07:06] ---
    Huh?
[07:07] ---
    "Love"?
[07:08] ---
    Alright, you go first, Melida.
[07:10] ---
    U-uh, well...
[07:13] ---
    A partner like that is something...
[07:15] ---
    I've never had so far.
[07:27] ---
    "So far"...
[07:30] ---
    Uh, what about yourself Mule?
[07:32] ---
    Naturally, I'm in the same boat as you.
[07:35] ---
    And you, Sala?
[07:37] ---
    I'm shy around people I don't know well,
    so romantic love is a bridge too far...
[07:43] ---
    I guess things aren't about to get exciting, after all.
[07:45] ---
    Why aren't you asking me?
[07:48] ---
    Let me see...
[07:49] ---
    Then, let's talk about one of the other standard topics:
[07:52] ---
    Scary stories.
[07:54] ---
    Uh, my "little sister" isn't good with that kind of stuff.
[07:59] ---
    Relax.
[08:00] ---
    While what I have in mind is a scary story,
    it's also a sorrowful love story, you see.
[08:08] ---
    This story is famous in
    Aquarimus Heavenly-Mirror District,
[08:11] ---
    which is renowned as the city of water.
[08:16] ---
    Oh, that story...
[08:20] ---
    A long time ago,
[08:21] ---
    there was a husband and wife who moved
    to Aquarimus Heavenly-Mirror District.
[08:26] ---
    Fleeing the land of eternal night,
    they came to Flandore seeking a fresh start.
[08:31] ---
    However, due to groundless prejudice,
    the people of Flandore repeatedly attacked them.
[08:37] ---
    The husband, who was unable to find adequate employment
[08:39] ---
    and was driven into a corner day after day,
[08:42] ---
    ultimately came to treat his wife harshly.
[08:46] ---
    Even so, the wife endured it all with selfless devotion.
[08:50] ---
    However, one particular day...
[08:52] ---
    the husband, who had at last lost his mind,
[08:55] ---
    slashed his wife to death with a knife,
[08:57] ---
    and proceeded to cut out her heart!
[09:01] ---
    Having by now calmed down,
[09:03] ---
    the husband became terrified of what he had done,
[09:05] ---
    and he ran off with the heart he had dug out.
[09:09] ---
    However, while he was on his way he stumbled
    and ended up dropping his wife's heart.
[09:16] ---
    At that moment, a voice said, "My dear, are you hurt?"
[09:20] ---
    Believe it or not, the heart had spoken to the man!
[09:23] ---
    The man finally came to his senses.
[09:26] ---
    It was then that he understood...
[09:28] ---
    just how very much his wife had loved him...
[09:32] ---
    and just how much he had done
    something that can't be undone.
[09:37] ---
    The man embraced his wife's heart,
[09:40] ---
    and he then proceeded to throw himself into the water.
[09:44] ---
    Then, it is said, the two of them departed this life.
[09:49] ---
    That's a pretty sad story...
[09:51] ---
    That's your very best scary story?
[09:54] ---
    No...
[09:55] ---
    As a matter of fact,
[09:58] ---
    there is a second half to this tale.
[10:02] ---
    It was okay up till the man and his
    wife's heart had set off for heaven,
[10:08] ---
    but the body of the wife,
    who had lost her heart and been abandoned,
[10:12] ---
    harbored a deep-seated grudge
    and began to move around.
[10:16] ---
    The woman...
[10:17] ---
    Who was only wandering around
    the city to look for her own heart,
[10:21] ---
    at some point came to be called the "Gray Witch."
[10:25] ---
    "The Gray Witch"...
[10:29] ---
    It's said that night after night she roams about,
[10:31] ---
    attacking pretty young women and
    then cutting their hearts out.
[10:38] ---
    Even now...
[10:39] ---
    and always!
[10:44] ---
    G-get a hold of yourself, Elli!
[10:47] ---
    Don't leave me all on my own!
    By the looks of how much you enjoyed it,
[10:49] ---
    it seems telling the story was worthwhile.
[10:52] ---
    B-b-but, it's nothing more than a made-up story, right?!
[10:55] ---
    I can't believe a heart could actually talk...
[10:58] ---
    Is that what you think? To tell the truth...
[11:01] ---
    All around Flandore there's been a string of appalling
[11:05] ---
    murders where the victims had their hearts dug out.
[11:08] ---
    Are they simply crimes committed for kicks by
    someone who was inspired by the tale?
[11:12] ---
    Or...
[11:18] ---
    What the...?
[11:23] ---
    I wonder if there's some wind blowing in from outside.
[11:25] ---
    Pina, bring me some matches.
[11:28] ---
    Pina!
[11:29] ---
    Pina is nowhere to be seen.
[11:30] ---
    She's vanished!
[11:32] ---
    "Vanished"?
[11:33] ---
    That can't-
[11:38] ---
    Who are you?!
[11:39] ---
    And how did you get inside here?
[11:50] ---
    The Gray Witch...?
[12:02] ---
    Th-the Gray Witch!
[12:04] ---
    She's come to cut out all of our hearts!
[12:14] ---
    Everyone, flee for safety!
[12:16] ---
    I'll buy some time!
[12:33] ---
    Oh, that's right!
[12:34] ---
    Not all weapons are things made of steel.
[12:37] ---
    Isn't that right, Instructor?!
[12:39] ---
    Everyone, use the shawls!
[12:44] ---
    Now! Run for it!
[13:08] ---
    It seems she's not chasing after us.
[13:10] ---
    Do you think everyone's alright?
[13:13] ---
    In any case, let's head back to our dorm.
[13:15] ---
    Good idea.
[13:23] ---
    Could it really be that the woman with
    the pointy hat is the Gray Witch?
[13:28] ---
    I don't know.
[13:30] ---
    But, Keira got defeated quite easily.
[13:33] ---
    So what's clear is that it was no ordinary person.
[13:36] ---
    For heaven's sake!
[13:38] ---
    "Witches" are pure fiction.
[13:41] ---
    So there's no way one actually exists, right?
[13:45] ---
    If we talk to Instructor Kufa,
[13:47] ---
    he of all people will know what we're dealing with...
[13:55] ---
    Wh-what's wrong, Melida?!
[13:57] ---
    I-I stepped on something.
[14:00] ---
    Something fell from above... and it's squishy.
[14:02] ---
    What is it?!
[14:03] ---
    I-I don't know.
[14:05] ---
    It's soft, cold, and springy...
[14:09] ---
    Human skin?
[14:10] ---
    Er, is it perhaps actually...
[14:14] ---
    entrails...
[14:17] ---
    or the like?
[14:23] ---
    Let's get out of here ASAP! Hurry!
[14:31] ---
    Oh no! I-I stepped on something!
[14:33] ---
    I-I did, too!
[14:35] ---
    Lita, I can't go on any longer.
[14:36] ---
    Elli, get a grip!
[14:39] ---
    My feet feel slimy!
[14:40] ---
    There's more and more of it!
    My feet feel slimy!
[14:41] ---
    There's more and more of it!
    Elli, pull it together!
[15:04] ---
    The waterway...
[15:05] ---
    If we can just make it out the end of the waterway...
[15:17] ---
    If my instructor sees me looking like this...
[15:23] ---
    How embarrassing!
[15:25] ---
    Nope! Nope! Nope! Nope!
[15:38] ---
    I can't be bothered with this anymore.
    I'm taking it off!
[15:41] ---
    Elli, don't do anything rash!
[15:44] ---
    Ah, right in my cleavage...
[15:46] ---
    Oh my, you're in a real fix now, huh, Sala?
[15:49] ---
    I'll help you out.
[15:51] ---
    I will, too.
[15:53] ---
    The fruit of betrayal... peach hunting.
[15:56] ---
    That can't be any fun, right?
[15:58] ---
    I'll get it all off without leaving a single shred,
[16:01] ---
    so come on and move your
    hands out of the way already.
[16:04] ---
    You're all scaring me!
[16:19] ---
    Th-the Gray Witch...
[16:22] ---
    Don't tell me... the older girls...
[16:25] ---
    got wiped out.
[16:28] ---
    I won't let you meddle with any of them!
[16:44] ---
    Sala!
[16:48] ---
    Elli?
[16:49] ---
    Live a good, strong life for me, Lita.
[16:52] ---
    What are you saying, Elli?!
[16:55] ---
    Don't resign yourself to losing.
[16:56] ---
    I'm going to fight alongside you.
[16:59] ---
    Lita...
[17:06] ---
    Phantom-Blade Flash...
[17:08] ---
    Wind Fang!
[17:14] ---
    She's powerful.
[17:15] ---
    She's really powerful.
[17:17] ---
    Run!
[17:18] ---
    Everybody, hurry and get out of here!
[17:34] ---
    If we can make it out of this waterway...
[17:43] ---
    Just a bit farther...
[17:44] ---
    A bit farther...
[17:45] ---
    Almost there.
[17:46] ---
    If we head to the dorm, my instructor will save us.
[18:06] ---
    She won't pursue us out here?
[18:08] ---
    Instructor Kufa...
[18:11] ---
    Instructor?
[18:13] ---
    Hello there, young ladies.
[18:16] ---
    Instructor, we're in some serious trouble!
[18:18] ---
    Something terrible has happened!
[18:19] ---
    I won't say bad things about you anymore,
    so please save us!
[18:22] ---
    Please, Instructor Kufa!
[18:23] ---
    When this is over, I'll serve you as much as you like!
[18:27] ---
    I'm actually in a bind myself right now.
[18:30] ---
    Will you help me search for something?
[18:34] ---
    "Search for something"?
[18:36] ---
    Yes. I am...
[18:39] ---
    looking for my ripped-out heart.
[18:56] ---
    Have you reflected on your conduct, young ladies?
[19:00] ---
    Is that...?
[19:01] ---
    It's tomato sauce.
[19:05] ---
    I can't believe all of the instructors found
    out about the unofficial closing party.
[19:13] ---
    I heard about something incredibly shocking...
[19:16] ---
    Word is it takes place after the
    housemother finishes her patrols.
[19:21] ---
    What does?
[19:23] ---
    They say that students from Friedeswiede and d'Autriche
[19:26] ---
    gather together and hold some
    kind of unofficial closing party.
[19:30] ---
    And... why are you telling me this?
[19:33] ---
    Now that you've heard about it,
    you can't just ignore it, right?
[19:37] ---
    Well, right she was.
[19:38] ---
    After all, it is the role of a private tutor to see that you young ladies
[19:42] ---
    maintain order in the academy.
[19:44] ---
    Uh, well... So then, who was the
    Gray Witch who appeared in the corridor?
[19:49] ---
    I had a hunch...
[19:51] ---
    That was Rosetti.
[19:54] ---
    She disguised herself and even used face paint.
[19:57] ---
    In a sense, perhaps she's the one who
    most enjoyed the disturbance tonight.
[20:01] ---
    What were those weird squishy
    things that fell into the waterway?
[20:08] ---
    That was pixie-gem.
[20:10] ---
    Do you know what that is?
[20:12] ---
    "Pixie-gem"?
[20:14] ---
    It's a toy, you see.
[20:16] ---
    S-so then...
[20:18] ---
    You're the one who made it rain down
    from the ceiling like that, Instructor?
[20:22] ---
    Ah, um... I'm sorry about that.
[20:25] ---
    I never thought it would end up causing such a panic.
[20:40] ---
    Instructor, you're dirty-minded!
[20:42] ---
    Doing such a thing to innocent female students...
    How distasteful!
[20:44] ---
    I can't believe you saw me like that...
[20:47] ---
    Perv, lecher, brute!
[20:49] ---
    I'm going to tell on you to Instructor Rose!
[20:50] ---
    Ahem! Which one of us do
    you suppose would get scolded?
[20:54] ---
    You are all now free to return to your rooms.
[21:12] ---
    M-my legs...
[21:14] ---
    I can't stand up.
[21:19] ---
    Excess excitement and fear, as well as tension...
[21:22] ---
    Your legs are numb after sitting on
    your heels for a long time, huh?
[21:26] ---
    What a predicament.
[21:28] ---
    Jeez, don't you get the picture?
[21:30] ---
    You're going to take responsibility for this, aren't you?
[21:33] ---
    Instructor...
[21:55] ---
    Instructor...
[22:00] ---
    Looks like I'll be staying up all night.
[23:36] ---
