[Bureau of the Occult]

...

Sola1
And that about sums it up.
Mikado1

It's like the silver lining on a dark cloud, I suppose.
Anyway, Sola here helped you out after you died.
She prevented the loss of your soul by using her own spirit essence.

Mikado6
But!

You sucked up more energy than she expected.
Thanks to you, she only has a small amount of her original spirit essence left.

Mikado4
You can see for yourself. That's why she's gotten so short...
Sola2
Hey! I'm just as short as I've ever been.
Sola5
I, I mean... I'm not that short in the first place!
Mikado1
Sure, sure.

Anyway, because you met the qualifications, you were able to become a spirit agent.
Now, just like me and other agents, you can use your spirit essence to command daemons.

(Sounds like something out of a video game...)
Mikado2
It's actually quite an incredible power to have.

You can even defeat big, bad monsters like that demon we just saw.
The only catch is that now without her powers, Sola's like a dried up old sponge.

Mikado1
Hey, kid. Join us in the Bureau of the Occult and serve under me.

A typical day on the job usually involves fighting spirits who threaten world peace.

Mikado2
So you're basically a superhero.
Mikado1

Normal people can't see spirits, though.

To them, we look like crazy people, babbling to ourselves and running around after nothing.

Mikado9
Ugh, some idiot policemen even tried to arrest me the other day...
Sola6
They tried to arrest you because you were trashing the town during your fight!
Mikado3
Was I now? Well, these things happen now and then.
So, are you in?
(How does she expect me to answer a question like that all of a sudden!)
Mikado6

So you're not sure?

How bout if I just tell you to take care of Sola's duties for her since you took her power?

(!!!)
Sola5

Anyway, don't mind me.

I'll be just fine!

(...)
Mikado6

So, you're alright accepting her help earlier, then doing to pay her back?

If she tells you it's okay, then you'll just walk away like nothing ever happened?

Mikado1

I don't know how you handled situations like this in the past...

But this time, you should decide for yourself instead of using someone else's words as an excuse.

(...)

I'll do it. Filled with determination, I nod my head furiously.

Mikado1
Don't take this the wrong way, but it really doesn't take much to change your mind.
This time I shake my head no.

My decision had nothing to do with what Mikado told me.

I just thought that I should do whatever I could to pay Sola back.

Sola5
Are... are you sure it's really okay...?
Mikado3
You act hesitant, but that grin on your face tells another story!
Sola5
H-hey! It's not like that! I'm not lonely in the slightest!
Sola1
This is a serious matter and I am acting like a complete professional!
Mikado1
Sure, sure.
Anyway, I'm glad that thing worked out like this naturally.
Mikado2
Otherwise I was going to have to force you to work for me.
Sola6
Whaaat?!
Mikado6

Well, there wouldn't have been any other choice, would there?

Not with this kid still sucking out all your power.

That's the first I've heard of that. You didn't think to mention it earlier?
Mikado6

Early or late, Sola's spirit essence isn't recovering on its own.

I need your powers, Sola, no matter who's in control of them.

Mikado2

From here on out, you two are a pair! Inseparable!

You'll do everything together—work, life, everything!

Mikado3
You might even try bathing together to deepen the bonds of friendship...?
Sola2
...Alright.
Mikado5
Whoa, you really will?!
Sola2

Of course not!

Just the "walking one path together" bit!

Sola1
I'll have you know I'll make a proper contract with <insert name here> and act professionally at all times.
Mikado2

Sounds good to me.

You can get a rundown of the situation from Sola.

Mikado1

The incident with the spirits in Shinjuku, that is.

It hasn't been taken care of yet, so I want you two to go there on the double.

Sola1
Yes ma'am!
Sola4

I know it seemed like it was all over, but there's still a bit more work to do.

So let's get going!
C'mon, master!
