Outbreak! A Day of Battle in Shinjuku!
Prologue
Chapter 1 Background

A large outbreak of evil energy was detected in Shinjuku. Both Mikhael and an unknown dark spirit have been confirmed to be at the heart of it all. Joan of Arc discovered that Michael was taken over by evil energy, but she couldn't convince the archangel to back down, and lost her own powers as a result. Shinjuku was thrown into further chaos by the spirit of a bow known for being pure evil, the spirit of a Buddist statue bent on destroying works of art, and a ghost that could create brutes out of evil energy. What is Mikhael trying to achieve in all of this? And who is the mysterious dark spirit?

Joan of Arc
Joan Noire Story Render
You took my blow?
Joan Noire
Joan of Arc Story Render
It should be no surprise. We are the same Joan, aren't we?
Joan of Arc
Joan Noire Story Render
The same? What of me is the same as you?

Someone like you, who continues to deceive herself, will never be able to defeat me!

Joan Noire
*CHOOOM*
Joan of Arc Story Render
Ghk... I've never felt such hatred...

But I cannot lose...! Hrrahhhh!

Joan of Arc
*CLANG*
Joan Noire Story Render
You... you knocked me down?!
Joan Noire
Joan of Arc Story Render
If you wish to compare the strength of our wills, feel free to come at me.

Someone like you, who cannot control herself, will never be able to defeat me.

Joan of Arc
Joan Noire Story Render
Why you... you... RRAAAGHHH!
Joan Noire
*Rumble-umble-umble-UMBLE-UMBLE*
Sola8
What immense power... The very heavens tremble!
Sola
Gilles de Rais Story Render
...Joan. Are you alright?
Gilles de Rais
Joan of Arc Story Render
No. I cannot do this alone.
Joan of Arc
Gilles de Rais Story Render
Hey. Don't tell me you're losing your nerve.
Gilles de Rais
Joan of Arc Story Render
I'm not losing anything. So long as I'm with all of you.
Joan of Arc
Gilles de Rais Story Render
...Geez, you're gonna make me blush. How can you even say things like that with a straight face?
Gilles de Rais
Mikhael Story Render
I will help you, Joan. May the strength of the archangel Mikhael aid in thy victory.
Mikhael
Joan of Arc Story Render
Archangel, Gilles, thank you. And you as well, Ms. Shott, Ms. Ami, Sola and you, kind agent.

This will be the final showdown with my dark side.
Please... Lend me your strength!

Joan of Arc
Everyone
Got it!

Joan Noire Story Render
Why...? I mean, you know as well as I.

Humans are hideous beasts. To hold such contempt for the saint who would help them...! They are not worthy of living with their emotions so steeped in sin!
Men will always hold darkness in their hearts... That is why the only path to their salvation is their utter destruction... And you agree! I know you do!

Joan Noire
Joan of Arc Story Render
It is true. There is no way to prevent darkness from men's hearts. None other than destruction.
Joan of Arc
Joan Noire Story Render
Then why?!
Joan Noire
Joan of Arc Story Render
Because removing that darkness is not necessary.

While humans cannot eliminate their darkness, they can surpass it. Even as they embrace anger and hatred, they can show others kindness.
That is what makes men precious... I... we, love those people.
I know you feel the same, Joan of Arc.

Joan of Arc
Joan Noire Story Render
Love...
Joan Noire
Joan of Arc Story Render
Shall we go forward, together? There is much to do to save the people we love.
Joan of Arc
Joan Noire Story Render
...

... You really are too—good.
But... I suppose it is... acceptable...

Joan Noire
Sola3
Oh... Noire's body is glowing...
Sola
Joan of Arc Story Render
...
Joan of Arc
Scarlett Shott Story Render
She merged with Joan...
Scarlett Shott
Joan of Arc Story Render
...It is done. My darkness... my missing piece has returned to where it was meant to be.
Joan of Arc
Amitabha Tathagata Story Render
In other words... This is finally all over?
Amitabha Tathagata
Gilles de Rais Story Render
Not just yet.
Gilles de Rais
Sola3
What now?
Sola
Mikhael Story Render
Ohhh...OooOOOohhhhhh...
Doppelganger
Scarlett Shott Story Render
The last of Mikhael's doppelgangers...
Scarlett Shott
Amitabha Tathagata Story Render
Is she absorbing the pillar of evil energy?!
Amitabha Tathagata
*RUMBLE RUMBLE RUMBLE*
Mikhael Story Render
The evil energy of the whole town is in there.

Foolish... That power will not last much longer.

Mikhael
Mikhael Story Render
Why... Why dost thou not understand... Joan...

Now I cannot... save thee... Thou hast suffered for so long...

Doppelganger
Joan of Arc Story Render
Archangel...

I do not need saving.
It does not matter to me if I am injured or if I must suffer, if it means I can keep those dear to me safe.
That is what I desire more than anything.

Joan of Arc
Mikhael Story Render
No... Why canst thou see... Joan... Joan...!

I... shall save thee! Absorb thee...! Take thee to a world where thou will never be hurt!

Doppelganger
Joan of Arc Story Render
I'm sorry, I refuse.

This is the world I live in. Be it harsh, or cruel, no matter the strain...
I will remain here, creating happiness with my friends!
This will bring all to a true end.
Now that archangel's doppelganger has absorbed the evil energy of the town, she will be a fearsome enemy.
Dear agent. Would you help me?

Joan of Arc
Mikhael Story Render
Why... Why dost thou not understand... Joan...

Now I cannot... save thee... Thou hast suffered for so long...

Doppelganger
Sola1
Of course! We've got her back, right, Master?
Sola
Mikhael Story Render
Why... Why dost thou not understand... Joan...

Now I cannot... save thee... Thou hast suffered for so long...

Doppelganger
<insert name here>
This matter has tangled up enough people's hearts. Lets finish this.
Post-Battle 200
Mikhael Story Render
Joan... Save...thee...
Doppelganger
Joan of Arc Story Render
Archangel Mikhael... Doppelganger or no, I must say this to you.

Thank you for trying to save me. But now your work is done.

Joan of Arc
Sola2
Now's our chance, Master! Cleanse her!
Sola
Mikhael's doppelganger had absorbed evil energy from all over town. But with everyone's help, we'd been able to whittle that down.
<insert name here>
Now I can cleanse everything!
Mikhael Story Render
Ohhh...OooOOOohhhhhh...
Doppelganger
The light becomes blinding.
<insert name here>
When I open my eyes again, the doppelgangers are all gone.
Mikhael Story Render
...Thank you for the hard work. My doppelgangers have successfully been destroyed.
Mikhael
Scarlett Shott Story Render
Um... Everything's really over this time, right?
Scarlett Shott
Mikhael Story Render
Yes. The thick miasma that choked this city will soon clear.
Mikhael
Amitabha Tathagata Story Render
Well! We really did it... I mean, as if victory was anything less than assured with me on hand!
Amitabha Tathagata
Joan of Arc Story Render
Of course. Then, I will be taking my leave.
Joan of Arc
Gilles de Rais Story Render
Huh? Where're you going?
Gilles de Rais
Joan of Arc Story Render
To assist the townsfolk. Even if the evil energy has been dispelled, the problems it caused will not disappear so easily.

I am the cause for everything that happened. Helping out is the least I can do.

Joan of Arc
Gilles de Rais Story Render
You're awful peppy for having just dealt with all this mess.

...'Course, if you weren't, you wouldn't be you.

Gilles de Rais
Mikhael Story Render
Yes. Such is the soul Joan is.
Mikhael
Gilles de Rais Story Render
Huh?
Gilles de Rais
Mikhael Story Render
Would thee mind if I participated in your rescue operations as well?
Mikhael
Joan of Arc Story Render
I appreciate it. We can always use more hands.
Joan of Arc
Mikhael Story Render
Excellent. Then, shall we go?
Mikhael
Gilles de Rais Story Render
Waaait a minute. What's this tripping off all cozy-like, eh, Boss Angel?
Gilles de Rais
Mikhael Story Render
Why, is there some sort of problem?
Mikhael
Gilles de Rais Story Render
Where do I start? How about where there's no way in hell I'm letting a leecher like you run off alone with my Joan?
Gilles de Rais
Mikhael Story Render
I beg your pardon! I am no philanderer! My attentions are solely for Joan.
Mikhael
Joan of Arc Story Render
Er... thank you... Ahem.
Joan of Arc
Gilles de Rais Story Render
And what the hell are you blushing for?!

Damn... I'm going, too. That's not a problem, right, Joan?

Gilles de Rais
Joan of Arc Story Render
Hm? Of course it's fine.
Joan of Arc
Mikhael Story Render
Tsk.
Mikhael
Gilles de Rais Story Render
Sorry to rain on your parade, Ms. Boss Angel!
Gilles de Rais
Mikhael Story Render
Come, Joan. We should distance ourselves from... barbarians.
Mikhael
Gilles de Rais Story Render
I'll have those stupid wings for dinner!
Gilles de Rais
Joan of Arc Story Render
Please calm down, you two!
Joan of Arc
Sola4
Ahaha...
Sola
Sola1
We solved one big problem, but now another one's popped up...
Sola
<insert name here>
Still, Joan looks really happy.
Sola1
...Yeah, she does.

Joan is really an amazing person. I hope I can be like her someday.
Alright, let's tag along with them, Master! We're gonna help out at least 100 people!

Sola
<insert name here>
I take Sola's hand in my arm, and we walk back into town.

With the darkness cleared away, the sky was a brilliant blue, and wide and open as Joan's heart...
