B1: Nico…

B2: Stand up, Nico…

B3: Nico Miles!

B4: …Dad..?

P2

B1: See? I told you it’s still impossible for your body to handle a long sword, Nico

B2: To begin with, it’s still too early for you to learn swordsmanship, Nico

B3: No, it’s better to train him as early as possible, just like trades

B4: Besides…
Nico has the potential inside him like me

B5: So make sure to protect your big sister, alright?

B6: Nico

H: Nee… chan…

P3

Sfx: Throb

B1: Thank God

Sfx: Rattle Rattle Rattle

B2: Are you awake now?

B3: Here, drink some water…

H: Thank God… Nee-chan is…

Sfx: Rattle

B4: I see… So those…

B5: …Were just a dream…

P4

Sfx: Rattle Rattle

B1: Tch!

B2: Really, what a pain in the ass…
Picking up a random brat like that…

Sfx: Rattle Rattle

B3: You can’t blame her, you know? If her son was still alive, he would have been around that kid’s age after all…

B4: Snore

Sfx: Rattle Rattle

B5: What are you implying?

B6: Anyways, we’ll leave him at the next town’s church, you hear me?

P5

B1: What a terrifying devil’s luck

B2: To think that he got picked up by a good merchant…
After he collapsed on the road at that time…

B3: Well, not like you’re a normal person either as you watch over that kid’s fate even now…

B4: What can I say, it’ll weigh on my conscience if that brat died by the road side just because he chased us

B5: However…
This is tiring…

B6: What are you talking about? You spend half the time on my back anyways

B7: But I do walk the other half of the time, no?

P6

H: Blade of Judgment

P7

B1: I believe it’s about time you reached your limit, yes?

Sfx: Clack

B2: To think that brat followed us for a whole 2 days without giving up…

B3-4: Sniff

B5: So you can already act like a proper animal now, huh…
Come on, sit down

Sfx: Pull

Sfx: Rattle

B6: But I guess we can finally resume our search for a proper duelist again now…

B7: Stab

B8: I wonder about that

Sfx: Rattle Rattle

B9: Because that carriage is getting attacked right now

P8

Sfx: Gallop

Sfx: Rattle Rattle

Sfx: Gallop Gallop

Sfx: Bam!

B1: Wha!?

Sfx: Crash

Sfx: Rumble Rumble

B2: Eh!?

Sfx: Rumble

P9

Sfx: Crash

B1: Nee-chan? What happened..?

Sfx: Stab

P10

B1: Swish

B2: Neigh!

B3: Please stop!

B4: Splat

B5: Where are the girls?

B6: Only an old hag here!

B7: I told you to not kill the horses, you moron!!

B8: Wha..!?

P11

B1: A crested sword?

B2: And a shoulder plate with ornaments?

B3: Hurry up and open their cargo!

B4: Check what’s inside!!

B5: However…

B6: Ugh, what is this smell!? Damn, isn’t all these manure!?

B7: Impossible! So you’re telling me that these guys are carrying all of these shit like it’s something important!?

B8: Dammit!! There is only shit here too!

B9: Hey, what does this mean?

B10: No, wait… I’m pretty sure they have a pretty sum of money with them!! They must have done something..!

B11: Shit!!

B12: These guys are… Bandits..!!

P12

B1: Oh right… I was following those two, and…
Nee-chan is…

B2: …

B3: Get a grip, me!

B4: This is the reality! I have to run away..!

B5: I have to run away or they’ll kill me!!

B6: Hurry up and run!!

B7: !

B8: Just run away from here!!

Sfx: Creak

B9: Huh? Who is this bitch talking to!?

B10: You dirty bitch!!

P13

B1: Tell us!!

Sfx: Smack Smack

B2: Now!!

H: Could it be, that woman…

H: Covered me with this cloth so they wouldn’t see me..?

H: So the water that time too…

H: Was also that woman’s doing..?

B3: That woman…

B4: To a stranger like me…

B5: Glare

Sfx: Flip

Sfx: Dash

B6: Grit

B7: To a stranger like me..!

P14

B1: She saved my life!!

Sfx: Thud!

B2: Guha!

Sfx: Shrakkk

B3: What!? A child!?

B4: Why aren’t you running away!?

Sfx: Inhale…

P15

B1: Hear me!!

Sfx: Bam!

B2: I have the determination to prove the truth behind your barbaric deeds in a flesh to flesh duel!!

B3: Huh?

B4: What’s that?
Barbaric?

B5: Is he looking down on us?

B6: Please… Take the bait

Sfx: Step

B7: Take the bait..!

Sfx: Slap!

P16

B1: Hey, brat… Are you seriously challenging me to a Judicial Duel?

Sfx: Ooooh
Ooooh

Sfx: Clack

B2: Even after seeing what I am capable of?

B3: As I thought… This guy is different from the others

B4: It’s a bit dirty, but he has valuable equipment with him…

B5: There’s no doubt… This guy is a former knight!!

Sfx: Rumble Rumble

P17

B1: I’m astonished. To think that he threw his glove like that…
Seems like he brought up a Judicial Duel in the middle of such a chaotic situation

B2: He has devil’s luck with him, plus a not bad bluff ability and insight to boot
That brat sure is talented as a con artist

B3: Every knight dreams of ending his life in a duel after all

B4: Furthermore…

Sfx: Roll

B5: That bandit…

P18

B1: Looking at his arm, there’s no doubt that guy had his fill of bitter experiences with Judicial Duels in the past
Of course he would be baited with such provocation

Sfx: Fwish

Sfx: Swish

B2: What worthless pride…

B3: It sure is…

B4: Hey, take away that rock over there!

B5: You over there! You didn’t connect the line properly!

B6: Alright! I guess this is good enough

B7: Scratch

B8: Scratch scratch

P19

B1: Brat, you know the rules right? This battle won’t be over until one of us dies…
Or if one of us leaves this circle

B2: It’s the purifying water. Drink it or dash it over yourself

B3: Sigh, Boss’ duel lover bad habit kicked in again…

Sfx: Blub Blub

B3: Sigh, how troublesome…

Sfx: Chatter

B4: Now… Normally, we would need an eyewitness for a duel, but…

B5: Hmm?

P20

Sfx: Rustle

B1: !!

B2: Wha!?

B3: It’s a wolf!!!

B4: Shit, did it come over because it sniffed the blood!?

Sfx: Dash

B5: Hey, stupid brat!!

B6: Are you looking for death!? It’s a wolf for fuck sake!!

B7: ..!? The wolf… it’s not attacking him..!?

Sfx: Chatter

B8: What the hell!?

B9: They are bandits!!

B10: Don’t act like a wuss, brat!

P21

B1: You were the one who challenged him into a duel, weren’t you?

Sfx: Glare

Sfx: Badump

B2: I… I know…

Sfx: Stare

B3: …

B4: However…

B5: I’ll give you an advice to honor that overindulged justice side of yours

B6: That brat… He’s talking with a wolf..!?

Sfx: Murmur

B7: Don’t tell me..! Hey, bring over the muskets! Let’s shoot it to death!!

Sfx: Fwip

B8: Wait! Seems like he’s decided to continue our duel

P22

Sfx: Fwip

B1: Seems like you have steeled your resolve

B2: Then let’s start

B3: You sure you’re going to face me with that puny short sword of yours?

B4: Roll

B5: If I win, the defendant will apologize for their barbaric deeds…

B6: Leave the stolen goods here and depart from this area at once!

B7: Huh? Stolen goods?
You mean these shit? We don’t need them, moron

B8: Tch!

B9: So in other words, to spare your lives, huh…

P23

B1: Then if I win, it means that you accused us with a false charge!!

B2: And will be punished in the name of God as a criminal!!

Sfx: Twitch

B3: Criminal…

B4: I originally didn’t have any plans to kill this woman, but…

Sfx: Pull

B5: Thanks to you, brat, she’s going to be dead because you involved her!!

B6: So we’re going to be innocent after a single duel?

Sfx: Bwahahahahaha

B7: Then I thank you for bringing us this offer, boy!!

B8: And thanks to you too, God!! Bwahahahaha!

B9: I dragged that woman in this duel..!?

B10: No, he’s just bluffing! Because either way, she’s going to be…

B11: But…

P24

B1: Nico Miles!!

B2: Gasp!

Sfx: Twitch

B3: Fight!!

Sfx: Ooooooh!

B4: That’s right! I don’t have time to hesitate!

B5: Shit…

Sfx: Shudder

B6: I almost got baited by his cheap provocation..!

B7: Listen here, boy

B8: No matter how you look at it, he’s not an opponent you could beat by fighting properly

P25

B1: However, as you can see, he suffered defeat in a judicial duel in the past and lost his dominant arm

B2: In that case… There should be an opening you can exploit

B3: So trick him with a feint

B4: Waaaaah!!!

Sfx: Rattle Rattle

B5: In that moment, with the dominant hand he lost in the past…

Sfx: Shwing

B6: He will definitely send that rusted technique over

P26

B1: It’s coming!

Sfx: Fwip

Sfx: Slide

B2: Damn, it didn’t come!

Sfx: Rattle

B3: What’s this? So the only brave part in you is your loud voice, boy?

B4: You’re 100 years too weak, brat!!

B5: What’s that? Were you trying to provoke me?
It’s futile, my boy!!

Sfx: Dash

B6: Anyways, do you have enough now?

B7: Because you won’t be able to save that woman if you keep running away like this, you know?

Sfx: Twitch

P27

H: I can’t..?

H: I can’t save that person..?

H: Again..?

H: Because of me…

H: Nee-chan was…

Sfx: Grit

H: If only…

P28

H: I was

H: A little bit stronger…

H: Make sure to protect your big sister…

H: Nico!

Sfx: Dash

P29

Sfx: Fwip

Sfx: Clang!

H: This brat…

H: His footwork…

H: Is just like in swordsmanship art

H: As I thought, he was probably trained for it

B1: Nice going, boy… Now this is what a real duel should be like!

Sfx: Fwip

P30

B1: !?

Sfx: Clang!

B2: Wha!?

B3: That brat! He dares to throw away his weapon in the middle of the duel!?

H: Was that some sort of plan?

B4: Irritated

H: Or perhaps he’s just a plain fool?

B5: Grit

H: What a bore

H: I have enough

H: Now die

P31

Sfx: Fwip

B1: His unarmed and boorish appearance…

B2: No matter how you look at it…

H: Is specialized for striking!

B3: This is what I’m waiting for!

B4: Scrape

H: Inside the myriad of sword techniques…

H: Striking is a skill that has the least preparation moves. However, if you read the timing perfectly…

P32

H: It’s a straight…

H: And simple sword technique. Furthermore…

H: If you do it properly…

H: The “pulling” movement…

H: Will always bring the opportunity to strike

H: As long as…

H: You aren’t afraid…

H: And match the timing of your “pulling”…

H: The window to strike will definitely appear in front of you

P33

H: Wha..!? That boy…

H: Forget about feeling afraid…

H: He even took a step forward..!?

H: In other words…

H: A counter!

Sfx: Smack!!

P34

Sfx: Thud

Sfx: Ugh

B1: !!

B2: Out of the circle

Sfx: Fwooosh

B3: I..!

Sfx: Badump Badump

B4: I did it! I won!!

B5: As promised…

B6: Release that wo-…

P35

Sfx: Shwing

B1: Huh!?

Sfx: Fwip Fwip

B2: What are you talking about, boy?

Sfx: Clack

SFx: Shwing

B3: Like we care about your pointless duel…

Sfx: Clack

B4: Kill him!!!

B5: Wha..! It’s different from what you promised!!

Sfx: Jump

B6: My sword!

B7: !

Sfx: Swish

P36
(Note to editor: Double page with p37 please merge)

Sfx: Slash

H: A strike of light

P37

H: Flew in front of my eyes

P38

B1: I can’t see it clearly, but…

Sfx: Clack

B2: With his bare hands, even though he doesn’t have any wrists…

Sfx: Twirl

Sfx; Crack

B3: He performed a truly beautiful flash strike right in front of me…

P39

H: So this person…

H: Is also a knight

B1: It’s a monsteeeeeer!!!!

B2: What the hell is it!?

B3: A wolf that walks like a human!?

B4: Don’t tell me… It’s a werewolf!?

Sfx: Dash

B5: Uwaaaah!

Sfx: Panicky

B6: Run for your liveesss!!

Sfx: Totter

B7: W-Werewolf, you say..?

P40

B1: No, that’s wrong…

B2: The mechanism on those hands of his… He must be the same as me… Either a former knight or a former duelist…

B3: And that sword skill…
I wonder how much time he devoted to achieve that level of technique…

B4: Rattle

B5: …

B6: Compared to him, I guess I’m just a rusted duelist now…

B7: To think that I lost to a brat like that…

P41

B1: Hey, brat

Sfx: Throw

B2: It’s your win, Nico Miles

Sfx: Step

P42

Sfx: Clink

Sfx: Step

B1: Why are you hiding there, Ruins?

SFx: Rustle

B2: Do you seriously think that someone without any fighting skills like me…
Can stand at the open air like nothing is happening at a dangerous place like this?

Sfx: Rustle

P43

Sfx: Mumble Mumble

B1: Right…

B2: It’s dangerous…

B3: I should have known. That’s why everyone…
Were always cautious of their surroundings…

B4: Despite that, I…

B5: I shouldn’t have saved you in the first place!!!

Sfx: Shout

B6: I should have let you die by the roadside that time!!

B7: I felt sorry for you because you were collapsed on the road all alone, but…
To think that you have comrades…

Sfx: Pant…
Pant…

B8: And what’s with that monster..!!

P44

B1: Are you a witch!?

B2: Don’t tell me… All of this…

B3: No!! These people are..!

B4: How rude

B5: My name is Ruins, Nico Miles’ guardian
Oh, by the way…

Sfx: Fwip

Sfx: Step

B6: What are you transporting, to make you even going through a dangerous forest like this

Sfx: Rattle

B7: In the middle of the night?

B8: !

Sfx: Twitch

B9: W-What you ask? J-Just manures…

B10: Manures, huh… Come to think of it, I heard an interesting rumor recently…

P45

B1: It seems like there are strange people who want to boil and distil the excretes and soils around toilets, animals’ sheds and pens

B2: I think they’re planning to make the forbidden saltpeter

B3: Or in other words, they’re going to use them to make gunpowder illegally

B4: !

B5: And if by chance, your group is the one who received profits from smuggling that kind of thing…

B6: Then it’s no wonder that there would be people who got wind of that rumor and attacked your group

B7: So if you’re still blaming Nico Miles…
Even after you heard what I just said…

P46

B1: Shall we do another Judicial Duel right here right now?

B2: To prove your own innocence

B3: …

B4: It was all for that kid…

B5: Even though it was all for that kid…

P47

B1: She started smuggling to buy her kid’s medicine, but…
Even after her kid passed away, I guess in the end she can’t let the crime she dipped her toe in go

B2: Besides, the Abbe who we entrusted that women with seems to be quite proper, so you don’t have to worry

B3: …Thanks

B4: In chaotic times like this, where the conflicts between Lords never stops…

B5: Some people throw their weights around as mercenaries or bandits

B6: Even the “innocent” citizens are tainted with crimes in this turbulent time

P48

B1: And the Judicial Duel is the one and only Blade of Judgment in this chaotic world

B2: So carve it inside your memory that it’s not all bad

B3: Now that you know, just go back to your own home already

B4: !

B5: That’s..!

B6: Ah

Sfx: Collapse

P49

B1: Huh? Why are my hips…
Oh right… I collapsed because I got too tired, huh…

B2: But why are those guys just fine after walking this far?

B3: It’s no wonder for the wolf guy, but…

B4: Why is a slender girl like her fine…

B5: Is it because of the difference of our resolves..?

B6: Shoot..!

B7: They’re going to leave me behind..!

B8: Wa…

B9: Wait..!

P50

B1: !

Sfx: Fwip

B2: Eh?

B3: You…
You’re going to carry me!?

B4: Wait wait wait!!

Sfx: Panic Panic

B5: Why did he become so kind all of a sudden..?

B6: But well, if you insist…

Sfx: Stand

B7: Not you

B8: Eh?

P51

B1: …

B2: What?
I’m fine, you know?

B3: …

B3: I told you I’m fine

Sfx: Step

B4: Could it be… Your feet are hurting..?

B5: They are not, you stupid!!
