Shi: Uwwoaahh!! What the hell!?
Shi: The wind's going in reverse now!! We're going to get sucked in!!
H: That's the technique of the "Void".
Shi: Void!? What do you mean Void!?
Shi: Does it have something to do with the Tribe of the Void?
H: It's got nothing to do with them!!
H: Heck! Even I don't really get what it's about!!
Shi: What do you mean you don't get it!!
H: Senya will come up with something!! Pray that he does!!
S: What is this place... It's a bit like the spiritual world but at the same time not really...
S: Like it's empty or something...
J: The tails of the five elements... The tails of wind and thunder... The tails of light and darkness.
J: So this is the tail that comes after. The last one, the tail of nothingness...
S: Erm... So what kind of technique is it?
J: It's nothing.
J: It turns everything into nothing. That's the sort of nature this tail has.
S: That doesn't really clear things up...
J: While it is a part of me, it's still not so easy for me to explain it...
J: The tail of vanishment...? Idleness...?
S: Vanishment? So it made me vanish?
S: Then what am I doing here?
J: It's because you were in contact with me as I activated the technique.
J: So we managed to avoid getting erased... However...
J: However, that might just be a matter of time too. Eventually the both of us could get absorbed into this nothingness...
J: That is... if this space even has a concept of time to it.
S: Can't you release the technique?
J: I did. This place is probably inside the hole that the technique opened up in the world... or at least, that's what it seems to be. Not the technique itself but what remains of it.
S: And the way to get out...
J: Sorry. I don't have any ideas either...
S: If it's a hole then we just have to fill it up, they said.
J: Huh? Who said...
S: My buddies inside of me.
S: Give me a hand
S: We'll fill this nothingness up with our spirit power.
S: It'll be easy with the two us.
J: Yes. Of course.
J: I do owe you one.
S: You owe me?
J: You brought my sister to me.
J: That saved me.
S: In that case I probably owe you one too.
S: I got to meet Shinsuke thanks to you.
S: I was saved too.
S: I'd say it's even
S: For everyone.
Hak: The battle between the Thousand Tailed Demon Fox and Thousand Demon Devil has now come to a close meow.
Hak: Their lives
Hak: will continue on meow
J: Sorry about everything. You even gave me some clothes to wear.
S: It's fine. Let's meet again.
J: Yes, let's.
S: Keep in good health.
Title: Chapter 97 Filling the Nothingness
Shi: The battle has ended. And we went back to our village.
Shi: Take care of yourselves. Jinka. Tama.
Sha: You take care now.
Sha: You too Shaku.
Shi: I was going to have Jinka and Tama remain here with the other demons in the village, but,
Shi: The two of them said they were going to go back to their home in the mountains.
Ta: ...The color of your hair didn't go back to how it used be. Is that proof of you being a demon?
J: I suppose so. I even have ears up there now.
J: I guess that I means I've completely become a demon.
Ta: They suit you.
S: We'll be heading off now ourselves Shinsuke.
Shi: Right. Take all the time you need. See ya Nau.
N: Thanks for having me.
T: I think we'll be back in about a month...
Shi: Senya and Tsukiko left on a trip
Shi: to take Nau back to where he is meant to be.
Sha: The village is going to be quiet for a while...
Shi: ...Sorry Shaku.
Shi: I still have one bit of business that I need to take care of myself.
Shi: And I also...
Shi: ...I'll definitely come back so take care of the village for me till then.
H: Where are you off to?
Shi: To none of your business.
H: Sorry, but I'll be going with whether you like it or not. Can't have you going off and dying somewhere my eyes won't reach. I have a reservation for your soul after all.
Shi: Do what you like, but put something on if you're coming with me.
Shi: ...by the way, what happened with Kokugetsusai?
H: He's gone.
H: He went without even giving Jinka a greeting.
H: He rented my body without my consent and skipped out on the payment.
Shi: That old geezer seriously doesn't miss a beat.
Tak: I am very sorry for my long absence form home. Mother.
M: My goodness. You are supposed to be the head of the Yamato
M: Just where on earth did you wander off to till now...
Tak: I went to take a peek at the world my younger brother lived in.
Tak: Shines on brilliant and bright in the world of darkness. Mother.
M: ...I see...
M: So Kokugetsusai-sama raised him splendidly for us then...
J: Sister, this is...
Ta: Ooyamamitsuchihime's mountain.
T: We have business to take care of before we return back to our own mountain.
N: We'll be there soon nau.
T: This place...
S: It's where we first met Nau...
S: Near where Tsukiko's village was...
N: ...that's right. I kept quiet about it all this time nau.
N: I am... an offshoot of the the mad god that Senya took down. Before that I governed the pond in the forest up ahead, but...
N: The shock from the defeat of the land god's main body
N: made me lose my memories nau.
Shi: Our journey left us with
Y: What brings you here?
Shi: A foolish question.
Shi: our own things to settle
Shi: once and for all
