[00:10] Puck
[00:17] Betel
    My brain trembles...
[00:20] Subaru
[00:21] Puck
    Be quiet, Subaru.
[00:23] ---
    I don't care what you...
[00:30] Betel
    Complacency! Negligence! That is sloth!
[00:33] Betel
    You should have killed me right away!
[00:37] Betel
    Even with the power you have,
[00:39] ---
    you failed to do what you needed to do!
[00:42] Puck
[00:46] Puck
    If you truly want to kill me...
[00:52] Puck
    Then grow a thousand shadows,
    half of what Satella could.
[02:31] Subaru
    Are you... Puck?
[02:35] Puck
    Can't you tell?
[02:37] Puck
    Maybe it's cruel of me to ask that.
[02:41] Betel
[02:43] Betel
    This is unbelievable!
[02:45] ---
    It cannot be!
[02:47] Betel
    A mere spirit...
[02:48] Betel
    My faith...
[02:50] ---
    Everything I've devoted my love to...
[02:52] Betel
    At the hands of a mere spirit?!
[02:53] Puck
    A human who's only lived a few decades
    shouldn't talk to a spirit about time.
[02:58] Betel
    Time has nothing to do with
    the depth of one's faith!
[03:02] Betel
    I wish you wouldn't liken me
[03:04] Betel
    to a fool like you, a being
    that lives for eternity,
[03:08] Betel
    but wastes most of it in idleness!
[03:10] Betel
    Ah, my brain is tremblinglinglingling...
[03:14] Puck
    Death isn't even a punishment.
[03:16] Puck
    This is why I hate all of you.
[03:19] Betel
    The Ordeal has been completed.
[03:22] Betel
    Even if my body dies,
[03:24] ---
    my wishes will be called to
    the exalted witch's side.
[03:26] ---
    And I'll receive her love!
[03:28] Betel
    I look forward to our reunion!
[03:32] Puck
    He quit while he was ahead.
[03:37] Puck
    Now, shall we have a little talk?
[03:40] Puck
    Subaru, you have committed three sins.
[03:44] Puck
    First, you broke your promise to Lia.
[03:48] Puck
    You don't seem to understand
    how important a promise is
[03:53] Puck
    to a spirit arts user.
[03:56] Puck
    Second, you ignored Lia's
    wishes and came back here.
[04:00] Puck
    And third...
[04:04] Puck
    You let Lia die.
[04:08] Puck
    In accordance with my contract,
[04:09] Puck
    I will now destroy the world.
[04:12] Subaru
[04:14] Puck
    Lia is...
[04:16] Puck
    Emilia is my entire reason for existing.
[04:20] Puck
    There's no reason for me to
    exist in a world without her.
[04:24] Puck
    The fog is coming closer.
[04:26] Puck
    It looks like a troublesome
    one has been drawn here.
[04:30] Puck
[04:32] Puck
    Oh, I suppose they call
    it the White Whale now.
[04:35] Puck
    You called it here, let Lia die,
[04:37] Puck
    and now, you die yourself...
[04:41] Puck
    You really are useless.
[04:46] Subaru
    I've heard this laugh before.
[04:49] Subaru
    The voice of a man I hated to death.
[04:53] Subaru
    No... It's me.
[04:56] Subaru
    I'm laughing at myself.
[04:58] Subaru
    I let Rem die, killed Emilia,
[05:01] Subaru
    and now, I'm going to die in vain.
[05:04] Subaru
    I really am so...
[05:07] Puck
    You truly are slothful, Subaru.
[05:21] Rem
[05:22] Rem
    What's the matter?
[05:25] Subaru
[05:26] Rem
    Yes, I'm your Rem.
[05:33] Rem
    I'm sorry I didn't notice...
[05:35] Rem
    This crowd is making you tired, isn't it?
[05:38] Subaru
[05:40] ---
    Yeah, that's right.
[05:43] Subaru
    I'm out of energy, worn down...
[05:45] Subaru
    I'm tired.
[06:03] Rem
[06:11] Subaru
    Sorry about that.
[06:13] Subaru
    I was feeling kind of stressed,
[06:16] Subaru
    so I skipped out on explaining.
[06:18] ---
[06:19] Rem
    Really, you mustn't do that.
[06:21] Rem
    I realize that you're giving a great
    deal of thought to our situation.
[06:26] Rem
    I don't dislike it when
    you're so forceful, though.
[06:29] Subaru
    Sorry I worried you.
[06:31] ---
    I'm fine now.
[06:32] Subaru
    I guess you've only seen me being pathetic,
    getting depressed all the time...
[06:37] Subaru
    But I get it now.
[06:39] Rem
    You get it now?
[06:42] Subaru
    I've bothered a lot of people
[06:44] ---
    with all my contemplating and agonizing,
[06:47] Subaru
    but I finally figured out how
    to take care of everything.
[06:50] Subaru
    Or, when I really think about it,
[06:53] Subaru
    I was told what to do from the very start...
[06:56] Subaru
    But I just don't know when to give up.
[06:58] Rem
    But I think that is what's
    so wonderful about you.
[07:04] Subaru
    Things I've realized and
    been forced to realize...
[07:07] Subaru
    All kinds of experiences have brought me here,
[07:11] Subaru
    but I've actually had the
    answer for a long time.
[07:16] Subaru
    I've decided, Rem.
[07:19] Rem
[07:23] Subaru
    Run away with me.
[07:26] ---
    As far as we can go.
[07:33] Rem
[07:34] Subaru
    I'm going to leave the
    capital and head far west,
[07:37] ---
    or maybe north.
[07:38] Rem
[07:39] Subaru
    I heard no one can enter
    the kingdom to the south,
[07:41] ---
    so one of those two.
[07:43] Subaru
    I don't like cold weather,
[07:44] ---
    so I'd personally recommend west.
[07:46] Rem
    Ah, um...
[07:47] Subaru
    Honestly, it could be a long journey,
[07:50] ---
    and I know this is a snap decision,
[07:52] Subaru
    so it won't be easy...
[07:53] Rem
    P-Please wait!
[07:55] Rem
    The way you said that makes it sound as if
[07:59] Rem
    you plan to go to some other
    country that isn't Lugunica...
[08:03] Rem
[08:04] Rem
    Knowing you, it must be because
    you've had another great idea!
[08:09] Rem
    Something that will help Emilia-sama
    and Roswaal-sama!
[08:12] Subaru
    That's not what this is, Rem.
[08:16] Subaru
    There's nothing I can do in the capital,
[08:18] Subaru
    but I'd be just as powerless if
    I went back to the mansion.
[08:23] Subaru
    That's what I figured out.
[08:26] Subaru
    So run away with me, Rem.
[08:29] Subaru
    We can't stay here.
[08:32] Subaru
    That's what everyone has been telling me.
[08:34] Subaru
    I didn't want to believe it,
[08:36] ---
    so I've denied it with all my might, but...
[08:39] Subaru
    Yeah, they're right.
[08:41] Subaru
    No one ever needed me.
[08:43] Rem
    That's not—
[08:44] Subaru
    It is true!
[08:46] Subaru
    It's been plainly spelled out
    for me, over and over.
[08:50] Subaru
    That's why I've decided to just disappear.
[08:53] Subaru
    It's for the best.
[08:54] ---
    Anything I do will just lead to a dead body...
[08:58] Subaru
    Or maybe more, depending on what happens.
[09:02] Subaru
    I've had enough.
[09:05] Subaru
    Let's run, Rem.
[09:06] ---
    You and I can't stay here.
[09:09] Subaru
    We shouldn't be in this country!
[09:12] Rem
    But this is so sudden...
[09:15] Subaru
    We don't have time!
[09:17] Subaru
    I'm sorry it's sudden, I really am.
[09:19] Subaru
    I really, really am.
[09:23] Subaru
    But you have to choose.
[09:25] Rem
[09:27] Subaru
    Me, or someone else?
[09:29] Subaru
[09:32] Subaru
    Let's get a dragon-drawn
    carriage and head west.
[09:35] Subaru
    We'll leave Lugunica and go far
    west to... Kararagi, was it?
[09:39] Subaru
    We'll buy a little house
    and live there together.
[09:43] Subaru
    Even if bad things happen,
[09:44] ---
    I can keep going if you're there.
[09:47] Subaru
    Just having someone waiting at
    home for me with a smile...
[09:50] Subaru
    No matter how tired I am,
[09:51] ---
    if I know you're waiting for me, I know...
[09:56] Subaru
    Please choose me!
[09:59] Subaru
    If you choose me, I'll
    give you all that I have!
[10:03] Subaru
    So please...
[10:05] ---
    Run away with me.
[10:06] Subaru
    Live with me!
[10:16] Rem
[10:18] Rem
    I can't run away with you.
[10:22] Rem
    We're supposed to laugh together
[10:25] ---
    as we talk about the future, remember?
[10:29] Subaru
    Maybe we can't laugh now, but...
[10:33] ---
    You know, once we actually get moving,
[10:36] ---
    I bet we can—
[10:36] Rem
    I've thought about it, too.
[10:42] Rem
    We would arrive in Kararagi,
[10:44] ---
    and rent a place to stay.
[10:46] Rem
    As long as we had a home and work,
[10:49] ---
    we would get by somehow.
[10:51] Rem
    Fortunately, thanks to Roswaal-sama,
    I've received an education,
[10:56] Rem
    so I think I could easily find
    work, even in Kararagi.
[11:00] Rem
    You might have to either
    look for manual labor
[11:03] Rem
    or take care of things around me.
[11:08] Rem
    Once we had a stable income,
[11:10] ---
    we could look for a better place to live.
[11:13] Rem
    You could study in the meantime,
[11:15] ---
    for perhaps a year, so that you can find
[11:18] Rem
    a decent job, until you can actually work.
[11:22] Rem
    We would work together,
[11:24] ---
    and once we had enough money,
    perhaps we could buy a house.
[11:29] Rem
    Maybe we could even open a shop.
[11:32] Rem
    Kararagi is a thriving
    commercial area, after all.
[11:34] Rem
    I'm sure we could earn a living
    on one of your fanciful ideas.
[11:38] Rem
    And once our jobs were on track...
[11:40] Rem
    Um, it's embarrassing to say, but...
[11:43] ---
    we could have a child...
[11:45] Rem
    It would be half-demon and half-human,
[11:47] ---
    so I'm sure it would be feisty.
[11:49] Rem
    Whether we have a boy or a girl,
[11:51] Rem
    twins or even triplets,
[11:53] ---
    I know they would be adorable.
[11:56] Rem
    I'm sure it wouldn't be all fun times,
[11:59] Rem
    and not everything would
    work out as I imagined it.
[12:03] Rem
    We might have only daughters and no sons,
[12:07] Rem
    so you might not feel very
    proud of your family.
[12:11] Subaru
[12:12] Rem
    But, but... Even when the children grow up
[12:15] Rem
    and reach the age where they
    start to treat you coldly,
[12:18] Rem
    I'll still be on your side.
[12:20] Rem
    We'll be famous in the neighborhood
    as a couple of old lovebirds,
[12:25] Rem
    as we take our time spending life
    together and growing old...
[12:32] Subaru
[12:33] Rem
    I would feel bad for doing it to you,
[12:35] Rem
    but I would prefer to die
    before you, if possible.
[12:38] Rem
    I want to die quietly,
[12:39] ---
    lying on our bed, with your hand in mine,
[12:42] Rem
    surrounded by our children and their children,
[12:45] Rem
    and say, "I was so happy,"
[12:49] ---
    as you all look on.
[12:52] Rem
    I could end my life happily, so happily.
[12:58] Subaru
    If you...
[12:59] Subaru
    If you want it that badly, then...
[13:04] Rem
    If you could wish for that
    future with a smile,
[13:08] Rem
    I would be truly happy to die that way.
[13:14] Rem
    As long as I could live with you...
[13:16] Rem
    Just knowing that you want me
    with you when you run away
[13:22] Rem
    makes me happy from the bottom of my heart.
[13:25] Rem
    But I can't.
[13:28] Rem
    Because I know
[13:29] ---
    that if we run away together now,
[13:32] Rem
    I would be leaving behind the
    Subaru-kun that I love most.
[13:38] Rem
[13:40] ---
    please tell me what happened.
[13:43] Rem
    If you can't, please trust me.
[13:46] Rem
    I swear I'll do something to make it right.
[13:50] Rem
    But for now, at least, we should go back.
[13:53] Rem
    If we take our time and
    consider things calmly,
[13:56] Rem
    maybe we'll find a different answer.
[13:59] Subaru
    I've already agonized over this.
[14:01] Subaru
    I've thought about it.
[14:02] ---
    I've suffered.
[14:04] Subaru
    That's why I gave up.
[14:09] Rem
    It's easy to give up, but...
[14:14] Subaru
    It's easy to give up?
[14:17] Rem
[14:18] Subaru
    Don't give me that!
[14:20] Subaru
    There's nothing easy about giving up!
[14:24] Subaru
    You think I'm just doing nothing,
[14:25] ---
    thinking about nothing,
[14:27] Subaru
    cutting myself off from everything,
[14:28] ---
    and throwing everything away,
[14:31] Subaru
    and that's all it took to give up?!
[14:36] Subaru
    It was not easy to give up!
[14:39] Subaru
    It was so much easier for me to think
[14:42] ---
    there was something I could do!
[14:45] Subaru
    But there's nothing I can do!
[14:47] Subaru
    There's no way out!
[14:49] Subaru
    The only path everything
    leads to is giving up!
[14:52] Subaru
    If I could do something,
[14:54] Subaru
    I would... I would...
[15:01] Rem
[15:04] Rem
    It is easy to give up.
[15:07] Rem
    But it doesn't suit you.
[15:12] Rem
    I don't know what painful things
    you've been through,
[15:15] Rem
    or what you've done that makes you suffer so.
[15:21] Rem
    And I know it would be wrong of me
[15:23] ---
    to thoughtlessly say I understand.
[15:26] Rem
    But even so...
[15:29] Rem
    There is something that I do know.
[15:33] Rem
    I know that you're someone who can't
    give up on something halfway through.
[15:39] Rem
    I know that you're someone who can smile
[15:44] Rem
    when you talk about your
    wishes for the future.
[15:48] Rem
    I know.
[15:50] Rem
    I know that you're someone who
    can't give up on the future.
[15:54] Subaru
    You're wrong.
[15:55] ---
    I'm not that kind of—
[15:58] Rem
    I'm not wrong.
[15:59] Rem
    You haven't given up on anyone...
[16:01] Rem
    Not Emilia-sama, or Sister,
[16:04] ---
    or Roswaal-sama, or Beatrice-sama,
    or anyone else.
[16:10] Subaru
    I have... I have given up!
[16:12] Subaru
    Carrying it all was impossible from the start!
[16:16] Subaru
    My hands are so small
[16:17] ---
    that it all slipped through my
    fingers, leaving nothing.
[16:21] Rem
    No, that's not true. You have—
[16:24] Subaru
    What do you know?!
[16:27] Subaru
    What do you know about me?!
[16:30] Subaru
    This is the kind of man I am!
[16:33] Subaru
    I have no strength, but I want it all.
[16:35] Subaru
    I have no knowledge, but all I do is dream.
[16:37] Subaru
    There's nothing I can do,
    but I struggle in vain!
[16:42] Subaru
    I... I...
[16:44] Subaru
    I hate myself!
[16:47] Subaru
    All I do is talk a big game,
[16:50] Subaru
    and make myself sound like a big shot,
    when I can't do anything!
[16:52] Subaru
    I never do anything,
[16:54] ---
    yet I can complain like a pro!
[16:57] Subaru
    Who do I think I am?!
[16:59] Subaru
    It's amazing that I can live like
    this and not feel ashamed!
[17:03] Subaru
[17:05] Subaru
    I'm empty!
[17:07] ---
    There's nothing in me at all!
[17:09] Subaru
    I know that...
[17:11] Subaru
    Yeah, that's obvious.
[17:13] Subaru
    I know it's obvious.
[17:15] Subaru
    Before I came here...
[17:17] Subaru
    Before I got into the situation
    that led me to all of you,
[17:20] Subaru
    do you have any idea what I did?
[17:23] Subaru
    I did nothing.
[17:25] Subaru
    I've never done a single thing!
[17:28] Subaru
    I had all that time, all that freedom...
[17:32] Subaru
    I could have done anything,
[17:34] Subaru
    but I never did a thing!
[17:35] Subaru
    And this is the result!
    What I am now is the result!
[17:39] Subaru
    All of my powerlessness,
    all of my incompetence,
[17:42] Subaru
    is the product of my rotten character.
[17:46] Subaru
    Wanting to accomplish something
    when I've never done anything
[17:50] Subaru
    goes beyond the limits of arrogance!
[17:53] Subaru
    The cost of my laziness and all
    the wasteful habits in my life
[17:57] Subaru
    just ends up killing both you and me!
[18:01] Subaru
    That's right.
[18:03] ---
    I have no character.
[18:04] Subaru
    Even when I thought I could go on
    living here, nothing changed.
[18:10] Subaru
    That old man saw that part of me perfectly.
[18:14] ---
[18:15] Subaru
    I wasn't trying to get stronger,
[18:17] Subaru
    or trying to make things better.
[18:20] Subaru
    I was just striking an obvious
    pose to justify myself,
[18:23] Subaru
    to say that I was trying, that it wasn't
    like I wasn't doing anything.
[18:30] Subaru
    I wanted to say I couldn't help it.
[18:31] Subaru
    I wanted to be told that
    it couldn't be helped!
[18:34] Subaru
    I was only pretending to push my body to
    the limits so that would be possible!
[18:40] Subaru
    Even when I had you help me study,
[18:42] Subaru
    I was just posing to cover up
    how embarrassed I felt!
[18:46] Subaru
    At heart,
[18:48] ---
    I'm just a small, cowardly,
    filthy piece of trash
[18:52] Subaru
    who's always worried about how
    others see me, and nothing...
[18:56] Subaru
    Nothing about me has changed!
[19:04] Subaru
    I knew it all along.
[19:07] Subaru
    That all of it was my fault...
[19:10] Subaru
    I'm the lowest of the low.
[19:12] Subaru
    I absolutely hate myself.
[19:20] Rem
    I know...
[19:22] Rem
    that no matter how deeply
    you've fallen into darkness,
[19:26] Rem
    you still have the courage
    to reach out your hand.
[19:31] Rem
    I love it when you stroke my hair.
[19:34] Rem
    I feel as if we can understand each other
[19:36] ---
    through the contact between
    your hand and my hair.
[19:40] Rem
    I love your voice.
[19:43] Rem
    Just hearing you say one word
[19:44] ---
    makes my heart feel warmer.
[19:47] Rem
    I love your eyes.
[19:50] Rem
    Normally, they look stern,
[19:52] Rem
    but when you're being kind to someone,
[19:54] Rem
    I love the way they soften.
[19:58] Rem
    I love your fingers.
[20:00] Rem
    For a boy, you have such lovely fingers.
[20:03] Rem
    But when they clutch mine,
    I know they are the strong,
[20:07] ---
    slender fingers of a man.
[20:10] Rem
    I love the way you walk.
[20:12] Rem
    When we walk together,
[20:14] Rem
    I love the way you occasionally
    turn to make sure I'm keeping up.
[20:20] Subaru
[20:21] Rem
    I love the way you look when you sleep.
[20:24] Rem
    You look unguarded, like an infant,
[20:26] Rem
    and your eyelashes are on the long side.
[20:28] Rem
    When I touch your cheek, you calm down...
[20:31] Rem
    And when I playfully touch your
    lips, you don't even notice...
[20:34] Rem
    And it makes my heart ache terribly.
[20:37] Rem
    I love you.
[20:39] Subaru
[20:41] Rem
    When you said that you hate yourself,
[20:45] Rem
    it made me want to tell you
[20:48] ---
    all the wonderful things I know about you.
[20:51] Subaru
    That was all phony!
[20:53] ---
    You just don't know me!
[20:55] Subaru
    I know myself better than anyone!
[20:59] Rem
    All you know is yourself!
[21:02] Rem
    How much do you know about
    the Subaru-kun that I see?!
[21:09] Subaru
    Why... do you like me so much?
[21:13] Subaru
[21:14] Subaru
    I'm weak and small.
[21:17] ---
    I'm running away.
[21:18] Subaru
    Just like I ran away last time!
[21:20] Subaru
    So why?
[21:23] Rem
    Because you are my hero, Subaru-kun!
[21:30] Rem
    In that dark forest,
[21:32] ---
    when I didn't even know who I was anymore
[21:34] Rem
    and couldn't think of anything
    but violently lashing out,
[21:37] Rem
    you saved me.
[21:40] Rem
    When I woke up unable to move,
[21:42] Rem
    and Sister was exhausted after
    using too much magic,
[21:44] Rem
    you faced the mabeasts as a
    diversion so we could escape.
[21:48] Rem
    There was no way you could win,
[21:50] ---
    and your life was in real danger.
[21:52] Rem
    But you still stayed,
[21:54] Rem
    and came back to my arms, still warm.
[21:59] Rem
    When you woke up, you smiled,
[22:01] Rem
    and said the words I wanted to hear most,
[22:03] Rem
    when I wanted to hear them most,
[22:05] ---
    from the one I wanted most to hear them from.
[22:08] Rem
    My time has been stopped for so long.
[22:12] Rem
    Ever since that fiery night,
[22:14] Rem
    the night I lost everything except my sister,
[22:18] Rem
    my time has been stopped.
[22:22] Rem
    It was you who melted my frozen heart,
[22:25] Rem
    and kindly made my stopped time
    begin to move forward again.
[22:31] Rem
    I'm sure you have no idea how you saved me,
[22:36] Rem
    or how happy I was at that
    moment, on that morning.
[22:41] Rem
    That's why I believe.
[22:45] Rem
    No matter what painful things happen,
[22:47] Rem
    even when it looks like you'll lose...
[22:50] Rem
    When no one else in the world believes in you,
[22:54] Rem
    when you don't even believe in yourself...
[22:57] Rem
    I will believe...
[23:06] Rem
    that the Subaru-kun who saved me
[23:09] Rem
    is a true hero.
[23:25] Subaru
    No matter how hard I tried,
[23:28] ---
    I couldn't save anyone.
[23:30] Rem
    I'm here.
[23:32] Rem
    The Rem you saved is right here.
[23:36] Subaru
    I've never done anything. I'm empty.
[23:40] Subaru
    No one will even listen to me.
[23:42] Rem
    I'm here.
[23:44] Rem
    I'll listen to anything you have to say.
[23:47] Rem
    I want to.
[23:49] Subaru
    No one expects anything of me.
[23:52] Subaru
    No one believes in me.
[23:55] Subaru
    I hate myself.
[24:00] Rem
    Well, I love you, Subaru-kun.
[24:08] Subaru
    You really don't mind that it's me?
[24:12] Rem
    I want it to be you.
[24:15] Rem
    I wouldn't want for it to be anyone else.
[24:19] Rem
    If you can't forgive yourself
[24:22] ---
    for being empty and having nothing,
[24:24] Rem
    then let's start from here, right now.
[24:27] Subaru
    Start what?
[24:29] Rem
    Just like you started my time for me
    when it was stopped,
[24:34] Rem
    we'll make the time that
    you feel is stopped for you
[24:37] ---
    begin to move again.
[24:39] Rem
    Let's start here,
[24:43] Rem
    from square one.
[24:45] Rem
[24:47] Rem
    From zero!
[24:53] Rem
    If it's too hard for you to walk alone,
[24:55] ---
    I'll hold you up.
[24:57] Rem
    We'll share the burden and
    support each other as we walk.
[25:01] Rem
    Isn't that what you said to me that morning?
[25:05] Rem
    Show me how awesome you can be, Subaru-kun.
[25:11] Subaru
[25:13] Rem
[25:17] Subaru
    I love Emilia.
[25:22] Rem
[25:24] Subaru
    I want to see Emilia smile.
[25:26] Subaru
    I want to be of help to Emilia's future.
[25:29] Subaru
    Even if she says I'm in the way,
[25:31] ---
    even if she tells me to stay away...
[25:35] Subaru
    I want to be next to her.
[25:38] Subaru
    Using my feelings for her as an excuse
[25:41] Subaru
    to get her to understand everything
[25:44] Subaru
    was arrogant of me, huh?
[25:47] Subaru
    It's okay if she doesn't understand.
[25:50] ---
    I just want to save her.
[25:52] Subaru
    If there's a bleak,
    painful future waiting for her,
[25:55] Subaru
    I want to take her away to a future
    where we can all laugh together.
[26:02] Subaru
    Will you help me?
[26:05] Subaru
    I can't do anything alone.
[26:07] ---
    I lack in everything.
[26:09] Subaru
    I'm not confident that I can
    even keep walking straight.
[26:12] Subaru
    I'm weak, fragile, and small.
[26:15] Subaru
    So, to make sure I keep walking straight,
[26:18] Subaru
    to help me realize when I'm wrong...
[26:21] Subaru
    Will you help me?
[26:26] Rem
    You are a cruel man, Subaru-kun.
[26:28] Rem
    You ask all this of someone you just rejected?
[26:32] Subaru
    Hey, it's also hard for me to ask
    this of the one who rejected
[26:36] ---
    my once-in-a-lifetime proposal.
[26:49] Rem
    I humbly accept.
[26:52] Rem
    If it will help you,
[26:55] Rem
    my hero,
[26:57] ---
    greet the future with a smile, then yes.
[27:01] Subaru
    Yeah, just watch.
[27:03] Subaru
    You get a front row seat...
[27:10] Subaru
    to see the man you fell for
[27:12] ---
    become the most awesome hero ever!
[27:26] Subaru
    I'm watching you.
[27:29] Subaru
    You're watching me.
[27:32] Subaru
    So I won't look downward.
[27:34] Subaru
    Natsuki Subaru's story will begin
    right here, from zero.
[27:42] Subaru
    My life in another world
    starts here, from zero!
SIGN    From Zero
[27:55] Crusch
[27:56] Subaru
    Okay, I'll say it again.
[27:58] Subaru
    An alliance between the Emilia and
    Crusch camps, on equal terms.
[28:03] Subaru
    The information I'll offer
    for that purpose is the time
[28:06] Subaru
    and location of the
    White Whale's appearance.
[28:08] Subaru
    That's the one card I can play.
[28:15] Wilhelm
    The White Whale?
[28:25] Wilhelm
    Please forgive my indiscretion.
[28:28] Wilhelm
    I suppose I still have much to learn.
[28:31] Crusch
    And? It is rather sudden of you
    to bring up the White Whale.
[28:36] Subaru
    Not at all.
[28:37] Subaru
    When we began this negotiation,
[28:39] Subaru
    I mentioned the magic stones found
    in Elior Forest in Roswaal's domain.
[28:44] Subaru
    If sharing the mining rights is insufficient,
[28:47] Subaru
    I need to offer an additional push.
[28:51] Subaru
    Crusch-san, I'm certain that
    my information will aid
[28:55] ---
    in your plan to subjugate the White Whale.
[28:58] Crusch
    Let me ask one thing, Natsuki Subaru.
[29:01] Crusch
    What gave you that idea?
[29:04] Crusch
    That remark was not one you could
    pass off as a baseless accusation.
[29:07] Subaru
    For these past few days,
[29:08] ---
    some things have bothered me.
[29:10] Subaru
    First, the increase in traffic
    to and from your mansion.
[29:13] Subaru
    It's been just a bit excessive.
[29:16] Subaru
    Also, I heard in the capital that you've
    been buying up weapons and armor.
[29:20] Subaru
[29:21] Russell
    If Crusch-sama's goal should be attained,
[29:25] Russell
    I'm sure it would suit your
    desires, Wilhelm-dono.
[29:28] Subaru
    It seemed as if you were
    planning something big.
[29:32] Subaru
    Of course, I can't prove that.
[29:34] Subaru
    Maybe I only made the connection
[29:36] ---
    because I know the White Whale
    will be appearing soon.
[29:40] Crusch
    I have another question, Natsuki Subaru.
[29:43] Crusch
    On what grounds do you know
    that the White Whale will appear?
[29:48] Subaru
[29:50] Crusch
    What in the world is this?
[29:53] Subaru
    The moment before that happened...
[30:00] Subaru
    It's what you'd call a metia.
[30:03] Subaru
    It tells me when and where
    the White Whale will appear.
[30:07] Crusch
    I find this a bit hard to believe...
[30:12] Crusch
    But I see that you aren't lying.
[30:14] Subaru
    I appreciate that, but are you sure
    you want to believe me so easily?
[30:19] Felix
    Lies will get you nyowhere with Crusch-sama.
[30:21] Felix
    She has the divine protection of wind-reading.
[30:23] Subaru
    Uh, say what?
[30:25] Crusch
    When a person lies, a telling
    wind blows around them.
[30:30] Crusch
    I can see that wind.
[30:32] Crusch
    You did not have that.
[30:34] Subaru
    Does that mean you'll agree to an alliance
[30:36] ---
    in exchange for my information
    on the White Whale?
[30:38] Crusch
    You're getting ahead of
    yourself, Natsuki Subaru.
[30:41] Crusch
    Whether or not I agree to the alliance
[30:43] ---
    and whether or not I believe
    you are separate matters.
[30:47] Crusch
    My decision will determine
[30:48] ---
    the outcome of the royal selection,
    if not the very future of the kingdom.
[30:52] Crusch
    It cannot be made lightly.
[30:55] Anastasia
    Mind if I listen in on this li'l chat, too?
[31:00] Russel
    Pardon us.
[31:02] Crusch
    Anastasia Hoshin...
[31:04] Crusch
    Russell Fellow?
[31:07] Anastasia
    Well, y'all asked us to
    come, and here you are,
[31:09] Anastasia
    startin' without us.
[31:12] ---
    That's hardly fair.
[31:14] Anastasia
    Let us in on this.
[31:18] Crusch
    Was it Natsuki Subaru who
    asked you to come here?
[31:22] Anastasia
    Well, to be exact, it was
    this gal he keeps with him.
[31:24] Anastasia
    I only heard the gist of it,
[31:28] Anastasia
    but if you're really plannin' to subjugate
    the White Whale, I look forward to it!
[31:29] Anastasia
    For us business folk,
[31:32] Anastasia
    whether the White Whale's around
     or not is a life-or-death matter.
[31:35] Anastasia
    Of course, our mercenary team will help y'all.
[31:38] Russell
    In addition to the White Whale,
    I'm interested
[31:40] Russell
    in the concession proposed
[31:44] ---
    by Natsuki-dono of mining
    rights to the magic stones.
[31:46] Russell
    If the alliance is formed,
    magic stones from veins
[31:48] ---
    previously untouched will be distributed
    to the capital through Crusch-sama.
[31:52] Russell
    As the merchant guild's representative,
    I cannot let this offer go unheard.
[31:55] Crusch
    Natsuki Subaru called you, as well?
[31:58] Subaru
    I'll say it once more.
[32:00] Subaru
    What I offer in return for this alliance is
[32:02] Subaru
    a share in the magic stone mining rights and
[32:05] Subaru
    information on when and where
    the White Whale will appear.
[32:07] Subaru
    In other words, the fuel needed
    to subjugate the mabeast
[32:12] ---
    that's terrorized the world for so long!
[32:15] Subaru
    If what I say makes no sense
    to you, forget I said it.
[32:20] Subaru
    But if your goal and my wish align,
[32:24] Subaru
    then let's defeat the White Whale.
[32:28] Subaru
    Let's go on a hunt!
[32:40] Crusch
    I still have several questions,
[32:42] Crusch
    but it was brilliant of you
    to uncover my plans.
[32:46] Subaru
[32:47] Crusch
    I have questions, as well as doubts.
[32:50] Crusch
    Many things you say are unclear to me,
[32:51] Crusch
    so I have difficulty agreeing immediately.
[32:54] Crusch
[32:55] Crusch
    I will choose to trust your eyes
[32:57] Crusch
    and the spirit that led you
    to create this situation.
[33:02] Russell
    Then the deal is made.
[33:07] Russell
    There were a few touch-and-go moments,
[33:10] Russell
    but I'm glad it worked out, Natsuki-dono.
[33:12] Russell
    I trust the promise we made prior
    to the negotiation still stands.
[33:14] Subaru
    Yeah, you were a big help, Russell-san.
[33:17] Subaru
    Once the subjugation is complete,
    I'll give you the metia.
[33:21] Crusch
    So you did lay some groundwork
    before coming here.
[33:24] Crusch
    And you were waiting outside the
    door for your moment to enter?
[33:27] Anastasia
    It was up to us when we'd interrupt, though.
[33:30] Anastasia
    Well, as far as negotiations go,
    I guess that barely gets a passin' mark?
[33:34] Subaru
    Took you long enough!
[33:35] ---
    I thought you were never gonna come in!
[33:38] Anastasia
    When negotiatin', there's always
    a time to make your move.
[33:42] Anastasia
    Well, as you're gettin' ready
    for the subjugation and such,
[33:45] Anastasia
    don't forget to patronize the Hoshin Company.
[33:48] Crusch
    You paved the way before negotiations began?
[33:53] Crusch
    You are surprisingly shrewd, Natsuki Subaru.
[33:56] Subaru
    My preparation and review
    paid off, that's all.
[33:59] Subaru
    To be honest, I couldn't be more relieved.
[34:01] Felix
    Well, that's plain to see.
[34:07] Subaru
    We managed to save face for staying
    in the capital. Right, Rem?
[34:11] Rem
    Yes. You are truly wonderful, Subaru-kun.
[34:16] Rem
    The Witch's Cult?
[34:18] Subaru
    Yeah. They're on the move and after Emilia.
[34:22] Rem
    Roswaal-sama feared that
    might happen, as well.
[34:26] Subaru
    I want to stop them,
[34:28] ---
    but I don't have the fighting strength.
[34:30] Subaru
    I have to start negotiating
    now to pull some together.
[34:34] Subaru
    Will you help me?
[34:42] Wilhelm
[34:45] Wilhelm
    I thank you.
[34:48] Subaru
[34:49] Wilhelm
    I offer you gratitude
[34:50] Wilhelm
    equal to that which I offer to my
    lady, Duchess Crusch Karsten.
[34:55] Subaru
    E-Er, that's, um...
[34:57] Wilhelm
    As perceptive as you are,
[34:59] Wilhelm
    I am sure you're aware, but if
    I may introduce myself...
[35:03] Wilhelm
    My family name is Astrea.
[35:05] Wilhelm
    I took the previous Master Swordsman,
    Theresia van Astrea, as my wife,
[35:09] Wilhelm
    giving me the honor of the
    lowest seat in the bloodline.
[35:13] Wilhelm
    That is who I, Wilhelm van Astrea, am.
[35:18] Wilhelm
    I thank you for so kindly
    granting this old man
[35:21] Wilhelm
    the opportunity to slay the loathsome
    mabeast that took my wife.
[35:26] Subaru
    S-Sure! Of course I knew that!
[35:30] Subaru
    I figured Crusch-san would accept
    my offer with that in mind—
[35:33] Crusch
    Natsuki Subaru.
[35:35] Crusch
    The wind of untruth is blowing from you.
[35:49] Subaru
    I get it...
[35:51] Subaru
    You bought all the dragon-drawn
    carriages for this,
[35:53] Subaru
    and that's why I had trouble getting
    a ride back to the mansion.
[35:56] Felix
    You're still awake?
[35:58] Subaru
    As if I could sleep.
[36:00] Subaru
    Everyone else is working through the night.
[36:02] Felix
    They have nyo choice.
    We don't have much time.
[36:05] Subaru
    Yeah, the White Whale will
    appear tomorrow night,
[36:08] Subaru
    in the area around Flügel's Tree.
[36:10] Felix
    So, given the travel time,
    we'll just barely make it.
[36:13] Felix
    Besides, can't you see it
    in nyall of their faces?
[36:19] Felix
    Nyot a single one of them
    is preparing unwillingly.
[36:23] Felix
    Everyone wants to be rid of the White Whale,
[36:26] Felix
    especially Old Man Wil.
[36:30] Subaru
    He said it took his wife...
[36:33] Felix
[36:34] Felix
    He's been chasing after the
    White Whale all this time...
[36:38] Felix
    Ever since it killed the previous
    Master Swordsman, his wife.
[36:44] Subaru
    The previous Master Swordsman...
[36:46] Felix
    Well, now you know,
[36:48] Felix
    so you should stop worrying and get to sleep.
[36:51] Felix
    There's nyothing you can do to help
[36:53] ---
    with supply distribution
    or organization, anyway.
[36:56] Subaru
    That may be true,
[36:57] ---
    but you didn't have to say it!
[37:10] Subaru
    I'm supposed to pick whichever one I want?
[37:13] Felix
    What is it nyow? You don't like them?
[37:16] Subaru
    It's not that!
[37:17] ---
    I'm glad you're letting me borrow one,
[37:19] Subaru
    but I can't tell anything about their quality!
[37:22] Subaru
    Do I look like a veteran who's studied nothing
    but ground dragons for decades... Wait...
[37:31] Subaru
    Are you that one from...
[37:39] Subaru
    Looks like this is the one.
[37:42] Rem
    I'm surprised.
[37:44] Rem
    This ground dragon is a type
    known for being extremely proud.
[37:49] Subaru
    Felis, I'll take this one.
[37:50] ---
    It's love at first sight!
[37:52] Felix
    Sure thing.
[37:53] Felix
    But don't say "love at first sight."
[37:54] ---
    You're making Rem-chan pout.
[37:56] Rem
    I'm not pouting!
[37:58] ---
    I'll be nice to it! I can do it!
[38:13] Subaru
SIGN    My lady was tellin' me about you.
SIGN    You're the star of this little show, aren't ya?
SIGN    Ho
[38:20] Subaru
    That logo, and a Kararagi accent
    from a demihuman...
[38:24] Subaru
    So you're with Anastasia?
SIGN    What, ya knew?
SIGN    I'm Ricardo, head of her mercenary team.
SIGN    Nice to meet you, too, li'l lady!
[38:33] Subaru
    Keep it down! Also, you're huge!
[38:35] ---
    You'll snap my neck!
SIGN    Hey! My lady!
[38:38] Subaru
[38:40] Subaru
[38:42] Crusch
    So that is the pride of Anastasia and
    the Hoshins, the Iron Fang...
[38:46] Crusch
    I see. They all look quite strong.
[38:50] Crusch
    Did you rest well last night?
[38:51] Subaru
    I nearly died a second ago...
[38:54] Subaru
    Oh, so I guess you're fighting too, then?
[38:56] Crusch
    Do you think I'm capable
[38:58] ---
    of just sitting in a chair and
    waiting for good news?
[39:01] Crusch
    I'm more surprised that you're participating.
[39:05] Crusch
    Can you fight?
[39:06] Subaru
    Nope, I can't.
[39:07] Subaru
    But even if I can't fight,
[39:10] Subaru
    I think this human here will be pretty
    useful against the White Whale.
[39:14] Crusch
    I must ask: on what grounds?
[39:17] Subaru
    I'm not all that happy about it myself,
[39:20] Subaru
    but I seem to be the type of
    guy that attracts mabeasts.
[39:24] Crusch
[39:26] Rem
    It's true.
[39:28] Rem
    Subaru-kun has saved my life
    before, thanks to that.
[39:32] Subaru
    So I'll run around under
[39:33] Subaru
    the White Whale's nose on my borrowed
    ground dragon and draw its attention,
[39:37] Subaru
    while you guys launch an all-out attack!
[39:40] Subaru
    That's the tactic I'd recommend, anyway.
[39:43] Crusch
    Under the White Whale's... nose?
[39:48] Crusch
    Shockingly, I sense no lies in that statement.
[39:51] Crusch
    I never thought
[39:53] Crusch
    I'd doubt my divine protection as
    often as I have in the past half day.
[40:02] Crusch
    They're here.
[40:07] Conwood
    Crusch-sama, we have arrived.
[40:12] Conwood
    Is this boy...
[40:14] Crusch
    Yes, he is.
[40:18] Conwood
    Thank you, young man.
[40:20] Subaru
[40:21] Conwood
    Thanks to you, our wish may come true.
[40:24] Conwood
    We could not be happier.
[40:26] Conwood
    Thank you.
[40:35] Rem
    It seems they're all people who have
    a history with the White Whale.
[40:39] Subaru
    So they're like Wilhelm-san, then?
[40:43] Crusch
    Yes, many are men who have
    retired from the front lines.
[40:47] Crusch
    They've joined our subjugation
    force at Wilhelm's invitation.
[40:52] Crusch
    Their morale and experience
[40:53] Crusch
    is comparable to those of the
    capital's active knights.
[40:56] Felix
    Crusch-sama, it's time.
[40:58] Crusch
[41:05] Crusch
    Four hundred years.
[41:07] Crusch
    Since the White Whale
    created by the Jealous Witch
[41:10] ---
    made the world its hunting ground,
[41:12] Crusch
    trampling the weak and dominating
    the land as if it were its owner,
[41:15] Crusch
    four hundred years have passed.
[41:18] Crusch
    Countless lives have been lost in that time.
[41:22] Crusch
    Given, as well, the unscrupulous
    nature of its fog,
[41:25] Crusch
    the number of graves we cannot even
    inscribe with names will only rise.
[41:30] Crusch
    But those days of sitting idle end today!
[41:34] Crusch
    Those of us here today will end it!
[41:37] Crusch
    We will strike down the White Whale
    and stop further tragedy from arising!
[41:41] Crusch
    We will give the sorrow that
    fell short of true sorrow
[41:44] ---
    a chance to shed overdue tears!
[41:48] Crusch
    We move out!
[41:50] Crusch
    Our destination is Flügel's Tree,
    on the Lifaus Highway.
[41:53] Crusch
    Tonight, we will slay the White
    Whale with our own hands!
[42:06] Mimi
    I'm Mimi! Glad to know ya!
[42:09] Hetaro
    My name's Hetaro. Nice to meet you.
[42:11] Subaru
    Yep, nice to meet you.
[42:13] Subaru
    Anyway, not that I doubted it, but...
[42:16] Subaru
    You really are the second-in-command, huh?
[42:19] Mimi
    Huh? Have we met somewhere before?
[42:22] Mimi
    Hmm... I totally can't remember at all!
[42:26] Hetaro
    C-Come on, Sister,
    you have to sit up properly.
[42:27] Mimi
    Totally can't...
[42:30] Subaru
    Don't worry about it.
    Just talking to myself.
[42:33] Subaru
    I'm Natsuki Subaru.
[42:34] ---
    So you two are brother and sister, huh?
[42:36] Hetaro
    Yes, my big sister and I will do our—
[42:38] Mimi
    When Mimi and Hetaro are together,
    we're the strongest!
[42:41] Mimi
    And the captain's here too,
    so we're the super strongest!
[42:44] Hetaro
    Uh, my sister and the
    captain tend to be hasty,
[42:44] Mimi
    Strongest! Strongest! Super strongest!
[42:49] Hetaro
    so I usually give the orders.
[42:51] Subaru
    I see...
[42:52] ---
    Must be rough...
SIGN    What'sa matter, bro? Ya look awful gloomy!
[42:57] Subaru
    Whose fault is that?
[42:58] Subaru
    A captain shouldn't make trouble for his men.
SIGN    Hey, that's a nice ground dragon ya got there.
[43:03] Subaru
[43:05] Subaru
    Is it?
[43:07] ---
    I borrowed this one because
    it seemed to like me, but...
[43:10] Subaru
    Come to think of it,
[43:12] ---
    the ones you guys are
    riding look kinda different.
SIGN    They're called rigers.
SIGN    Ya don't see 'em too often in these parts, though.
SIGN    They ain't as strong as ground dragons,
[43:20] ---
    but they're much more agile.
SIGN    If it comes to a brawl against the Whale,
SIGN    that's where they really shine, so watch close.
[43:28] Subaru
    Shouldn't you have had ground
    dragons pull the cargo, then?
SIGN    We've gotta manage our luggage on our own.
SIGN    If ya think the White Whale's our only enemy,
SIGN    you'll get the rug pulled out from under ya.
SIGN    Ain't no guarantee we won't run into thieves on the road, after all.
[43:46] Subaru
    If anyone's got the guts to take on
    a fully armed group like this,
[43:50] Subaru
    they wouldn't settle for being thieves.
SIGN    Good point!
[44:00] Rem
    It looks like Ricardo-sama is trying
    to ease everyone's nerves.
[44:06] Rem
[44:10] Subaru
    I thought I'd prepared myself for this...
[44:13] Subaru
    You can tell the hero inside to awaken,
[44:16] Subaru
    but it really isn't as easy as it sounds.
[44:33] Subaru
    It's huge!
[44:36] Rem
    You sound happy, Subaru-kun.
[44:43] Subaru
    Oh, looks like people have carved
    their names into the trunk.
[44:46] Subaru
    We're not on some field trip.
[44:48] ---
    That's just bad manners.
[44:50] Subaru
    Rem, get me a chisel!
[44:52] Rem
    Even you should know that will
    get you in trouble, Subaru-kun.
[44:56] Rem
    With me, for starters.
[44:58] Rem
    So the White Whale is coming here?
[45:01] Rem
    Honestly, I'm opposed to
[45:03] ---
    using the witch's scent to draw
    the White Whale here.
[45:07] Rem
    It's too dangerous.
[45:08] Subaru
    I'll use whatever I can.
[45:11] Subaru
    If it gives us even a slightly better
    chance of winning, it's worth it.
[45:16] Subaru
    For a guy who's lacking in every way,
[45:18] Subaru
    this is the only way I can compensate.
[45:21] Rem
    You are wonderful, Subaru-kun.
[45:27] Rem
    That metia will tell you when
    the White Whale is coming?
[45:32] Subaru
    Yeah. I set it to make noise when it's time.
[45:35] Subaru
    To be honest, without this—
[45:37] Rem
    That's a lie.
[45:40] Subaru
    Wh-What are ya saying?
[45:42] Suabru
    If it's a lie, then how'm I gonna...
[45:44] Rem
    You're speaking in something
    like the Kararagi dialect.
[45:47] Rem
    It doesn't suit you at all.
[45:49] Subaru
    No, no, no! I mean, there's
    no way I could be lying!
[45:52] Subaru
    Even Crusch-san said—
[45:53] Rem
    It's all right, Subaru-kun.
[45:55] Rem
    I can always tell when you're lying.
[46:00] Rem
    I also know that you can't
    tell me why you're lying.
[46:04] Rem
    So there's no need to try to convince me,
[46:07] ---
    or wrap everything in lies,
[46:09] Rem
    or try to take the blame
    upon yourself like that.
[46:15] Rem
    Because I have complete
    faith in you, Subaru-kun.
[46:27] Subaru
    Man! Looking up at this huge tree
    really gets you fired up, huh?
[46:32] Rem
    Yes, it does.
[46:35] Subaru
    I can't relax if I don't look at it for a long time!
[46:38] Subaru
    I won't be able to look down for a while!
[46:41] Rem
    Yes, you're right.
[46:47] Subaru
    I should say "thank you" instead
    of "sorry" right now, huh?
[46:52] Rem
    You're welcome.
[46:55] Rem
    Besides, I'm far more grateful
    to you, Subaru-kun.
[47:01] Rem
    So we're even.
[47:14] Subaru
    Uh... Wilhelm-san?
[47:18] Subaru
    I heard a bit of the story from Felis.
[47:21] Subaru
    That you've been seeking revenge on the
    White Whale ever since it took your wife.
[47:26] Wilhelm
    Please forget that.
[47:28] Wilhelm
    It was all time idly spent in
    an old man's delusions.
[47:32] Rem
    You truly love your wife, don't you?
[47:36] Wilhelm
    Yes. I love my wife.
[47:40] Wilhelm
    More than anyone,
[47:41] ---
    and no matter how much time passes.
[47:45] Wilhelm
    My wife was a woman who
    loved to look at flowers.
[47:50] Wilhelm
    She never wished to wield a sword,
[47:53] Wilhelm
    but the sword loved her more than anyone.
[47:56] Wilhelm
    With no choice but to live for the sword,
[47:59] Wilhelm
    my wife accepted her fate.
[48:04] Wilhelm
    I took the sword from her
    and forced her to abandon
[48:06] Wilhelm
    the title of "Master Swordsman"
    when I married her.
[48:10] Wilhelm
    But the sword would not allow her to do that.
[48:17] Wilhelm
    Subaru-dono, I thank you again.
[48:20] Wilhelm
    In this battle, I can find answers
    in my own sword.
[48:26] Wilhelm
    And perhaps I will finally be
    able to visit my wife's grave.
[48:32] Wilhelm
    At last, I can go and see her.
[48:39] Subaru
    Let's work together to beat the
    hell out of that damn whale.
[48:43] Subaru
    I'll help with everything I've got, too.
[49:07] Crusch
    Only a short time remains.
[49:35] Crusch
    Troops, be on guard!
[49:45] Guy
    I don't see it...
[49:57] Crusch
    It's not coming?
[50:00] Guy
    Is that...
[50:37] Crusch
[50:37] Subaru
    Let him have it!
[50:39] Rem
    Al Huma!
[50:57] Crusch
    Troops! Follow those two fools!
