Alucard (thinking): That stance! It’s not how Yomiko Readman used to handle paper. It looks more like…
What’s going on here?
And can I find out before she tears me apart?
Alucard: But if I’m a monster…what are you? You, who ally yourself with murderers and invaders…
Maggie: I don’t want to!
Alucard (thinking): …what?
Maggie: I know they’re bad, but I can’t help it!
I’m very sorry about this, monster-san!
You can’t just leave me hanging there. And when “I’m” supposedly dead, too!
Only a few more chapters to go, right? Hurry it up!
Alucard: I see…you’re just a child. Don’t think that means I’ll go easy on you. You can fight like an adult, you can die like an adult.
Alucard: You’re just now figuring that out?
Alucard: Come out, come out, wherever you–
–hello, what’s this?
Alucard (thinking): She’s tearing up the deck to smother the fire…!
…with a giant origami bear. How appropriate.
Maggie (thinking): He’s going to crash, no matter what I do…! Pull back! Pull back!
Alucard (thinking): Her weapon is paper…and she’s on a boat…which is on fire. This isn’t going to last long.
Alucard (thinking): Come on, little paper user…show me what you’ve got!
Maggie (thinking): You can do this. Just do as he taught you. Strike hard…stay on your toes…and work in lots of dramatic poses!
Maggie (thinking): Don’t worry. Have faith. Paper will protect you.
[POW POW POW]
Maggie: I guess this is it.
I wanted to at least finish the chapter…
Soldier 1: Fire the anti-aircraft guns, and–
Soldier 2: The plane’s going into a nosedive!
Soldier 1: –and take immediate evasive action!
He can’t be planning to crash into the ship! That would be crazy! / He’s moving too fast. There’s no escaping it. Our only hope now is that girl…
Alucard: All this dramatic buildup had better be worth it.
