[00:08] ---
    So, these are the basement stacks...
[00:10] ---
    I-24...
[00:12] ---
    I-24...
[00:14] ---
    I-...
[00:16] ---
    Found it!
SIGN    MAP OF THE HEAVENS
[00:24] ---
    "Map of the Heavens."
[00:26] ---
    That's it!
[00:28] ---
    Did you figure something out?
[00:29] ---
    These are Tailed Beasts!
[00:32] ---
    It looks like we're gradually getting closer
[00:34] ---
    to the Ultra Particles.
[00:36] ---
    Yeah.
[00:37] ---
    But we still don't know how the information
[00:39] ---
    from the Map of the Heavens
    is connected to
[00:41] ---
    "the part of the sky that fell to earth,"
[00:42] ---
    where the Ultra Particles are located.
[00:44] ---
    Are there any other suspicious
    places we haven't checked?
[00:48] ---
    Zansul's room apparently has a cellar.
[00:50] ---
    The director's room has one?
[00:53] ---
    It's only a rumor, but it could exist.
[00:56] ---
    But his room is heavily guarded.
[00:59] ---
    We need to think of some way
    to get around that.
[01:05] ---
    Yes, that would be the perfect opportunity!
[01:08] ---
    Tomorrow, the Prime Minister's messenger
[01:10] ---
    will be arriving from the capital
    to meet with Zansul.
[01:12] ---
    I see.
[01:13] ---
    We can take advantage of that.
[01:15] ---
    If I disguise myself as the messenger
[01:16] ---
    and meet with Zansul,
[01:18] ---
    we should get a chance
    to slip into the cellar.

    The Secret in the Cellar*
[03:15] ---
    Oh, looks like I got it right again!
[03:27] ---
    Gah! Are you kidding me?
[03:31] ---
    I won!
[03:34] ---
    Man, how do you always know when
    Meno's gonna come by our cell?
[03:40] ---
    I understand animals pretty well.
[03:43] ---
    My girlfriend was into horseback riding,
[03:45] ---
    so I've learned a bunch from her.
[03:48] ---
    Ganno, could you lend me
    that branch for a bit?
[03:51] ---
    Huh? What are ya gonna do
    with that thing?
[03:58] ---
    What are you doing?
[03:59] ---
    That's dangerous!
[04:00] ---
    It's all right.
[04:02] ---
    Meno won't attack
    unless a rule's being broken.
[04:07] ---
    Hey, come here!
[04:15] ---
    It really came over!
[04:17] ---
    What?! How?!
[04:19] ---
    This guy's usually curled up
    under the almond tree, right?
[04:23] ---
    It doesn't even eat almonds,
[04:26] ---
    so I think it just likes the scent.
[04:28] ---
    That makes sense.
[04:30] ---
    You can touch it right now!
[04:32] ---
    Nope, nope, nope!
[04:33] ---
    Absolutely not!
[04:36] ---
    What about you, Sasuke?
[04:39] ---
    I don't want to lose my right arm.
[04:41] ---
    You guys are no fun.
[04:44] ---
    You really suppose it's all right?
[04:46] ---
    Oh, Ganno!
[04:47] ---
    Just what I'd expect from our elder!
[04:53] ---
    Nice and easy, okay?
[04:58] ---
    Oh!
[05:04] ---
    Maybe I'll give it a shot too.
[05:07] ---
    Oh, sure thing.
[05:09] ---
    Go on.
[05:20] ---
    Get back!
[05:32] ---
    Why did it do that out of the blue?!
[05:34] ---
    It was so tame right up to that point.
[05:36] ---
    It was your foot.
[05:37] ---
    When you approached the iron bars,
[05:40] ---
    your toes slipped outside of our cell.
[05:42] ---
    What?!
[05:43] ---
    Hands are okay, but feet aren't?
[05:45] ---
    As far as Meno's concerned,
[05:47] ---
    a foot on the ground counts as
    leaving the cell, I guess?
[05:51] ---
    We ended up wasting what
    precious little oil we had left...
[05:57] ---
    It wasn't exactly my fault!
[05:59] ---
    You're the one who kicked it!
[06:01] ---
    What's all the fuss?!
[06:03] ---
    Did you all do something?
[06:05] ---
    No, those two were just fighting.
[06:09] ---
    Sorry for the ruckus!
[06:11] ---
    Damn it, if you make another fuss,
    you're gonna get it.
[06:15] ---
    Yes, sir. I'll keep them in line!
[06:29] ---
    Please come in.
[06:31] ---
    I'll come to meet you.
[06:39] ---
    Welcome. Thank you for coming.
[06:43] ---
    Mr. Zansul has asked me
    to escort you to his office.
[06:50] ---
    Is something wrong?
[06:51] ---
    Oh, no!
[06:53] ---
    I just expected I'd be greeted by
    a fearsome-looking man!
[06:56] ---
    One would expect that here.
[06:58] ---
    Please, this way.
[07:00] ---
    Of course.
[07:03] ---
    I apologize for the delay.
[07:05] ---
    I am a government official
    sent by the Prime Minister
[07:08] ---
    to deliver a message to Mr. Zansul.
[07:10] ---
    My name is Fandal.
[07:12] ---
    Thank you for coming all this way.
[07:14] ---
    Over here, please.
[07:19] ---
    So... what does the Prime Minister want?
[07:23] ---
    The thing is, even I'm not
    sure of the specifics.
[07:26] ---
    The Prime Minister just told me
    to inquire about the "progress"...
[07:31] ---
    Progress?
[07:32] ---
    Relating to what?
[07:34] ---
    I don't know.
[07:35] ---
    I was told he would know what that means...
[07:38] ---
    I guess the messenger
    wouldn't know the details.

[07:42] ---
    Is this your first time meeting Mr. Zansul?
[07:45] ---
    Yes, formally.
[07:46] ---
    I've seen him countless times
    when he's visited the palace.
[07:51] ---
    I see...
[07:53] ---
    And when was it again that Mr. Zansul
[07:55] ---
    last visited the Prime Minister?
[07:57] ---
    I believe it was last summer.
[08:00] ---
    My wife is an attendant at the palace
[08:03] ---
    and was assigned to tend to
    Director Zansul then.
[08:09] ---
    Here we are.
[08:12] ---
    Please go on in.
[08:13] ---
    All right.
[08:26] ---
    Did it go well?
[08:27] ---
    Yeah.
[08:28] ---
    When he wakes up,
    he won't remember a thing.
[08:31] ---
    As we planned yesterday,
[08:34] ---
    I'll pretend to be this man,
[08:36] ---
    meet with Zansul,
    and try to buy you some time.
[08:38] ---
    I leave it to you.
[08:39] ---
    Meanwhile, I'll sneak into
    the cellar in his room
[08:43] ---
    and find a clue to the Ultra Particles.
[08:45] ---
    Come to think of it,
    about Zansul's artificial eye...
[08:49] ---
    After looking through the documents
    in the infirmary,
[08:51] ---
    I found out that he has a weakness.
[08:54] ---
    A weakness?
[08:55] ---
    The artificial vision tech of
    the Nation of Redaku
[08:57] ---
    employs a jutsu
    that transplants the visual powers
[08:59] ---
    of a different person into an artificial eye.
[09:01] ---
    That's why he isn't affected
    by things like genjutsu,
[09:04] ---
    but he can still see things.
[09:06] ---
    But the artificial eye
    has a structural problem.
[09:09] ---
    It has a narrow field of vision
    at higher angles.
[09:16] ---
    And that's his blind spot, huh?
[09:18] ---
    That's right.
[09:20] ---
    But be careful.
[09:21] ---
    It may differ for each person.
[09:23] ---
    Understood.
[09:25] ---
    Now, onto business.
[09:36] ---
    I've brought the messenger.
[09:38] ---
    Enter.
[09:41] ---
    Please excuse me.
[09:42] ---
    My apologies, I got lost.
[09:46] ---
    It's fine.
[09:47] ---
    How good of you
    to make the long journey here.
[09:52] ---
    Nice to meet you.
[09:53] ---
    I am Fandal.
[09:55] ---
    Please, have a seat.
[09:56] ---
    Yes, thank you.
[10:01] ---
    Does the Prime Minister fare well?
[10:04] ---
    It's been over half a year since we last met.
[10:10] ---
    He's doing well.
[10:12] ---
    I'm glad to hear that.
[10:17] ---
    So that's the entrance to the cellar.
[10:20] ---
    Has Queen Manari gotten used to
    her official duties by now?
[10:24] ---
    Yes, she has...
[10:28] ---
    Look at that.
[10:29] ---
    It's started raining.
[10:35] ---
    Now!
[10:40] ---
    It's not raining at all.
[10:45] ---
    Oh no!
[10:58] ---
    You must have imagined it...
[11:00] ---
    He didn't see him...
[11:03] ---
    I must still be exhausted
    from my long journey.
[11:06] ---
    I can't blame you.
[11:08] ---
    We are far from the capital city, after all.
[11:11] ---
    By the way, Mr. Fandal,
[11:13] ---
    what happened to your cane?
[11:18] ---
    My cane?
[11:19] ---
    You had it when you entered this room.
[11:22] ---
    I don't see it anywhere.
[11:24] ---
    O-Oh, that?
[11:27] ---
    My cane's right here.
[11:28] ---
    Oh, so that's where it was.
[11:31] ---
    Pardon me.
[11:33] ---
    It's all right.
[11:35] ---
    That was close!
[11:37] ---
    By the way,
[11:38] ---
    I heard that the water shortage
    in the capital city is quite dire...
[11:41] ---
    Yes, it is.
[11:42] ---
    Though it hasn't hit home yet,
[11:44] ---
    since the palace is first in line
    to receive food and water.
[11:55] ---
    I see...
[11:59] ---
    Sasuke! You're being too bold!
[12:04] ---
    I need to draw Zansul's attention,
    so he doesn't notice him...

[12:09] ---
    To tell you the truth...
[12:11] ---
    I've seen you before last summer,
    Mr. Zansul...
[12:16] ---
    You did?
[12:17] ---
    Pardon me for not noticing.
[12:21] ---
    Speaking of last summer,
[12:23] ---
    that was right after
    the late king passed away.
[12:31] ---
    Queen Manari is still so young.
[12:34] ---
    I suppose the Prime Minister
    must be quite busy.
[12:37] ---
    Yes.
[12:39] ---
    Sasuke, hurry!
[12:42] ---
    I'll map out the keyhole with chakra...
[12:46] ---
    and construct a key with Earth Style.
[12:51] ---
    Mr. Fandal...
[12:54] ---
    Uh, yes?
[12:56] ---
    Perhaps it's time you told me
    what the Prime Minister wants.
[13:00] ---
    Y-Yes, understood.
[13:03] ---
    What's the matter?
[13:05] ---
    Oh, nothing...
[13:08] ---
    Has something in this room
    caught your attention?
[13:11] ---
    I just remembered!
[13:14] ---
    The attendant who was assigned
    to you during your visit
[13:19] ---
    just happened to be my wife!
[13:31] ---
    All right!
[13:36] ---
    Mr. Fandal...
[13:37] ---
    The message...
[13:39] ---
    R-Right, of course.
[13:44] ---
    It's quite strange,
[13:46] ---
    but it consists of a single question.
[13:49] ---
    "How is the progress?"
[13:52] ---
    How very typical of the Prime Minister.
[13:55] ---
    Progress is good.
[13:57] ---
    Please tell him that
    I already intend to send the assets
[14:01] ---
    to the capital city.
[14:03] ---
    Understood.
[14:05] ---
    By the way, these "assets",
    how many are we talking about?
[14:09] ---
    Mr. Fandal...
[14:15] ---
    You're just the messenger.
[14:18] ---
    I cannot risk giving specific numbers.
[14:22] ---
    There's no need to worry.
[14:24] ---
    The Prime Minister will understand.
[14:35] ---
    Forgive me!
[14:37] ---
    I apologize for
    overstepping my boundaries!
[14:41] ---
    Oh, it's all right,
    as long as you understand.
[15:01] ---
    I hope I can successfully find
    any clues to the Ultra Particles...

[15:16] ---
    The sound of wings?
[15:37] ---
    What is this place?
[15:47] ---
    A large amount of chickens...
[15:49] ---
    and fossils...
[15:56] ---
    This is—!
[16:01] ---
    Thank you very much for today.
[16:03] ---
    Please send the Prime Minister my regards.
[16:07] ---
    Understood.
[16:09] ---
    If you will excuse me...
[16:15] ---
    Sasuke, I hope you escape safely.
[16:31] ---
    I see it was connected to
    the back of the main building.

[16:36] ---
    I didn't find clues to the Ultra Particles,
[16:39] ---
    but I solved one mystery.
[16:43] ---
    The things stored in Zansul's cellar...
[16:46] ---
    The large amount of fossils
    that he made the inmates dig up...

[16:51] ---
    The large amount of chickens...
[16:54] ---
    And...
[16:56] ---
    That suspicious altar...
[17:00] ---
    In short, what he's been doing in there is...
[17:04] ---
    Reanimation!
[17:09] ---
    Meno?!
[17:29] ---
    Reanimation...
[17:33] ---
    a Forbidden Jutsu that brings
    a person back from the dead

[17:36] ---
    by using their DNA and a sacrifice.
[17:40] ---
    The reason why there are
    dragon beasts in this land...

[17:44] ---
    is because of Reanimation!
[17:48] ---
    The passageway is how all of you
    are released outside.

[17:59] ---
    The wound hasn't healed?
[18:11] ---
    And it doesn't have a Paper Tag!
[18:15] ---
    In order to control the person
    brought back to life by Reanimation,

[18:20] ---
    a Paper Tag needs to be embedded
    into their head.

[18:23] ---
    But it's clear that
    it's taking orders from Zansul.

[18:35] ---
    Strictly speaking,
    even if it's not Reanimation,

[18:39] ---
    the basic premise should be the same.
[18:42] ---
    Which means forcefully overwriting the jutsu
[18:45] ---
    to make it obey me should be possible!
[18:55] ---
    That rage...
[18:57] ---
    Is it because your wound hurts?
[19:17] ---
    Don't worry.
[19:19] ---
    I just created a form of
    supercooled Mist Style...
[19:24] ---
    to apply cold to your wound.
[19:33] ---
    Meno, listen to what I have to say.
[19:41] ---
    It's understandable that you're angry.
[19:44] ---
    You were forcefully awakened
    after resting peacefully
[19:47] ---
    for hundreds of millions of years, after all.
[19:50] ---
    Don't you want to go back
    to the place where you were?
[19:54] ---
    I can get you back.
[19:56] ---
    But in order to do that,
[19:57] ---
    I need your help.
[20:07] ---
    Now!
[20:10] ---
    I'm going to infuse my chakra
[20:12] ---
    directly through its tongue membrane!
[20:29] ---
    Did I overwrite the genjutsu?
[20:41] ---
    Meno!
[20:54] ---
    Okay, I got it, Meno!
[20:57] ---
    Go home and rest for today.
[21:37] ---
    Ah!
[21:40] ---
    Soon...
[21:41] ---
    I'll obtain it very soon.
[21:45] ---
    Once I do,
    my army of dragon beasts will be...
[21:50] ---
    unstoppable!
[23:25] ---
    It actually looks like a star filled
    sky right on the earth's surface.
[23:28] ---
    I doubt there's a more perfect match for
[23:30] ---
    "the sky that fell to the earth."
[23:32] ---
    Yeah.
[23:33] ---
    Sakura, I've never once worried
    about us when we've been apart.
[23:38] ---
    Sasuke...
[23:39] ---
    But... if it will give you
    some peace of mind...
