EP 0: Moonlight Hunter

Show/Hide Story Chapter


Dr. Roman
Hmm-hmm♪
La-la-laaa♪

Dr. Roman
Whoa, Fujimaru.
Why are you looking at me like that?

Dr. Roman
Mmm, it's like you're saying “I, myself, don't know, but this must be a form of happiness.”

Dr. Roman
Your expression is like a mixture of spiritual insight,
affection, and a little pity. Has something happened?

  1. No, but, Doctor finally...
  2. Why are you walking around with an empty plate?
  Select: No, but, Doctor finally...
Dr. Roman
What, were you watching me?
Dr. Roman
And what do you mean by “finally?”
I didn't do anything!

  Select: Why are you walking around with an empty plate?
Dr. Roman
Yeah, that's the problem. I keep waiting and waiting, but Mash hasn't come back yet.
Dr. Roman
I asked her to grab something from storage for me,
but I wonder if something happened...

===Branch End===

Da Vinci
Hey, Romani, where are the dumplings?
I'm about to show footage of the moon.

Da Vinci
Let's hurry up and hit the booze.
After all, we've been holding out for this day.

Dr. Roman
...Hmph, yeah right. That's what you say,
but you've already started drinking like a fish, you lout...

Dr. Roman
Wait a little while longer, Da Vinci.
Not all the staff members are here yet.

  1. Alcohol?
  2. Dumplings?
  Select: Alcohol?

  Select: Dumplings?

===Branch End===

Dr. Roman
Huh? Fujimaru, didn't you hear? The outdoor calendar shows it's almost the end of summer.

Dr. Roman
Meaning it's almost time for the Moon Festival.
It's said the harvest moon shall liven up conversations between friends.

Dr. Roman
The date isn't exactly right, but as long as there's a beautiful full moon in the night sky, it's perfect for the Moon Festival.

Dr. Roman
There's not a lot to do for fun in Chaldea, so I prepared this thinking we could use a break, but...

Da Vinci
Mash hasn't come back yet.
She was getting the dumplings from food storage.

Da Vinci
She said, “I'm powerful now that I've become a Demi-Servant, so leave it to me.” Then she took off on her own...

Da Vinci
I have a bad feeling about this.
Fujimaru, go see what's up—

Dr. Roman
The alarm? What's going on?!

Mash
This is serious, Doctor!
Someone has raided our food storage!

Mash
As well as the offerings we prepared for the festival and everything else... Chaldea's food reserves are nearly down to zero!

  1. What?!
  2. That aside, those glasses really look good on you, Mash.
  Select: What?!
Mash
Ah. Good morning.
I'm happy to see you're as healthy as ever.
Dr. Roman
Is this the place for that kind of conversation?
I'm impressed by how much you trust each other.

  Select: That aside, those glasses really look good on you, Mash.
Mash
Ah... Thank you.
My eyes are good so I don't really need them, but...
Da Vinci
Okay, look around you.
This is supposed to be a tense scene.

===Branch End===

Dr. Roman
No, this is not the time to discuss that.
Somebody raided our food storage. Who could it be?!

Mash
The thing is... None of the surveillance cameras picked up anything... They're not broken, but...

Mash
...but it's like all of the recorded footage has been painted over with a heart mark, so we can't see anything.

Mash
The analysis team in the monitor room said...

Mash
“When we watched the footage, we got dizzy and fell unconscious, one right after the other...”

Da Vinci
Hmm...
I see. This is a real pickle.

Dr. Roman
A pickle?!
Leonardo, have you gone bonkers, too?!

Da Vinci
Ah, pardon me. I was just having a bit of fun.
But anyway, Romani, take a look at this Singularity.

Da Vinci
Three minutes ago, someone Rayshifted to France.
That must've been the cause of the alarm.

Mash
Rayshift... With no authorization, and solo?
You're saying the culprit escaped by Rayshifting?

Mash
I can't imagine a Servant capable of something like that...

Dr. Roman
Good point.
Right now, Chaldea doesn't exist in normal dimension.

Dr. Roman
The only ones who can go outside are Master Fujimaru and contracted Servants.

Da Vinci
On the other hand, a Contracted Servant can do evil deeds.

Da Vinci
But only special and extremely powerful Heroic Spirits could bend the rules of time and space.

Mash
...Um, did you make a contract with such a powerful Servant?

Mash
There are no records of it, as far as I know...

Da Vinci
Yes, but the order of cause and effect would be opposite, you see?

Da Vinci
We're talking about a Heroic Spirit that could bend time and space, and stretch the string of possibility for “eventually forming a contract”

Da Vinci
into the “eventual outcome of a contract.”
It would be an incredibly powerful Heroic Spirit.

Dr. Roman
...If it finds the coordinates of Chaldea using nonsensical means like that, that's incredible...

Dr. Roman
But... I see,

Dr. Roman
if the culprit here is a Heroic Spirit who's willing to form a contract with Fujimaru.

Dr. Roman
Then the damage we suffer wouldn't be critical.

Dr. Roman
Because whatever the future, Fujimaru wouldn't form a contract with an outright villain.

Mash
No, Doctor.
The problem is that we don't have any food left.

Mash
At this rate, Senpai's health management and tea time after a Grail expedition can't be guaranteed.

Mash
As the Master's Servant, I propose we take measures quickly.

Dr. Roman
Y-yeah, I guess this is not the time to be thinking, “If we're out of sweet dumplings, we can just have sweet bean paste instead.”

Dr. Roman
Fujimaru.
For the sake of Chaldea's future,

Dr. Roman
and our fun Moon Festival, would you go check out the situation for us?

  1. Yes I'll go, Doctor.
  2. You really like sweet bean paste, huh?
  Select: Yes I'll go, Doctor.
Dr. Roman
I knew I could count on you.
That's why you're the Master of Chaldea.

  Select: You really like sweet bean paste, huh?
Dr. Roman
Well, of course. Sugar is indispensable to someone who works with his brain.
Dr. Roman
Actually, I was more of a pancake guy, but I got addicted to it when I went to Japan. Hahaha.

===Branch End===

Mash
All right, Doctor, please prepare for the Rayshift.
I'll get every last sweet dumpling back!

Da Vinci
(The culprit must be a Divine Spirit-class Servant that can Rayshift by itself...)

Da Vinci
(Well, some things are better left unsaid!)

Mash
Rayshift is complete.
This is—the France we're familiar with, right?

Mash
The one who raided Chaldea's storage is here—?
Huh? I hear something being fired nearby...

Woman
Oh my. What do we have here?

Mash
...Master.
There's a woman in strange clothes...

Mash
She's holding a bow in an improper posture,
firing not so effective arrows, and—

Werebeast
Ghraaaaaa!

Mash
She's fighting a pack of werewolves!
What's going on here?!

  1. I don't know, but let's help her!
  2. For now, let's fight!
  Select: I don't know, but let's help her!

  Select: For now, let's fight!

===Branch End===

Woman
Oh my! Are you here to give me a hand, stranger?
Hehe, aren't you a decisive one?

Woman
I will take up on your kind offer. Let's fight together.

Woman
We can leave the fun conversation for after the battle.
Right now, let's take out these bandits!

--BATTLE--

Mash
Combat complete.
But, I still sense enemies nearby.

Mash
Doctor, let me know the status of the surrounding—
Doctor?

  1. Bad connection?
  2. Think Roman's slacking?
  Select: Bad connection?
Mash
Seems like it... We can perform a Rayshift to return to Chaldea from here, but...

  Select: Think Roman's slacking?
Mash
Huh?
The doctor's being lazy, you think?
Mash
I can assure you that is not the case.
Dr. Roman isn't the type to slack off at his job.

===Branch End===

Mash
The more pressing concern is this woman.

Mash
Um... Excuse me. You're not a normal human, are you?
Are you...a Servant?

Woman
Hmm? Am I a Servant?
Oh, you mean a Heroic Spirit! I know all about them!

Woman
Indeed! I am a Servant!
The splendid hunter forever seen in the night sky—

Woman
My name is Orion! That's me!
Round of applause, please!

Mash
You heard her, Senpai.
What do you think?

  1. Clap, clap, clap.
  2. Wasn't Orion a guy?
  Select: Clap, clap, clap.
Orion
Hehe. Thanks for the applause.
I don't know who you are, but I think we can be friends♡

  Select: Wasn't Orion a guy?
Orion
Truth is stranger than fiction, you know.
Orion
They say that Orion was a fast-talking, no-good skirt-chaser who'd go after any woman he saw,
but—

===Branch End===

???
PGRYU!

Mash
Pgryu?

Orion
Hehehe. Sorry, I think that's my tummy rumbling.
I haven't had anything to eat in so long.

Orion
Anyway, they say all kinds of mean things about Orion in the legend, but he's actually a pure-hearted, wonderful hunter!

Orion
And I've materialized to prove just that...
Well? Do you believe me?

Mash
She's appeared in order to repair her reputation...
In other words, to correct an incorrect history!

Mash
I know how you feel, Miss Orion.
Your skills with a bow—

Mash
I'm really confused as to how you could hit a target effectively with that stance,

Mash
but that was really impressive!
You're as good as the Greek myths say!

Mash
The legendary hero who never misses, who seduced the Goddess Artemis!

Orion
Oh my. Oh dear. Never misses, you say?
Hehehehe.

???
Pgryyyrururur!

  1. Your stomach again?
  2. Huh? Seduced a goddess?
  Select: Your stomach again?
Mash
Aww, that's bad manners, Senpai.
You shouldn't ask a girl about her tummy.

  Select: Huh? Seduced a goddess?
Orion
Oh, that's true. More specifically, he made a goddess fall in love with him♡

===Branch End===

Mash
By the way, Miss Orion.
Have you seen anyone suspicious around here?

Mash
We're looking for someone who stole a large amount of provisions from our base...

Orion
Suspicious people... Maybe that trio I just saw?

Orion
They were running that way carrying something strange.

Orion
But, they were a little out of it.
All the food was falling out all over the place.

Orion
See those wolves gathering?
They're here to get the food that fell out.

Mash
Senpai! That's good information!
Let's hurry and follow them!

Mash
Oh, but we need to get those dumplings back...
Especially those super rare dumplings. I have to defend them at any cost...

  1. Huh... Super rare... What?
  2. Mash, calm down.
  Select: Huh... Super rare... What?
Mash
Oh—that's right.
You don't know about it.
Mash
Mixed with the other dumplings are some special ones,
made by a famous Japanese shop named Nanayabashiya.
Mash
Their taste rivals a 10,000 yen sukiyaki,
and their value rivals a dozen Saint Quartz...
Mash
They're special.
I'm not sure what I'm saying anymore.

  Select: Mash, calm down.
Mash
Oh... Right. Sorry. I panicked.
It's definitely not that I'm hungry.
Mash
Anyway, they're very special dumplings. They're humanity's greatest treasure, and must be defended at all costs.

===Branch End===

Orion
I see! I understand.
Can I help, then?

Orion
I owe you for saving me, and I need to showcase my archery skills, too. You're a Master, aren't you?

Orion
If you saw Orion being useful here,
I'm sure you would want to contract with her, right?

Mash
That would be great.
Thanks for your help, Miss Orion.

  1. Yeah, let's get those dumplings.
  2. Let the hunt begin!
  Select: Yeah, let's get those dumplings.

  Select: Let the hunt begin!

===Branch End===

Mash
Right! We'll pick up the rare dumplings as we chase after the thieves!

Mash
This is a special mission, unlike any we've done before,
but let's do our best!

EP 1: Antoinette and Company

Show/Hide Story Chapter

Mash
I see light ahead... It's a campfire!
We caught up to them, Master!

Mash
But that's—that's—

Marie
Here you go, d'Eon.
Open wide. Say aaah♡

d'Eon
Th-th-thank you, Marie...
Okay... Aaah.

Marie
Delicious, aren't they? They're so plump and chewy, and that sweet, sugary taste...

Marie
And they're so cute, like snowballs.
I'd love to learn how to make them.

Marie
Here, you have some, too.
Aren't sweet dumplings lovely, Sanson?

Sanson
Y-Yes... I accept this gratefully, my Queen.
But is this really okay?

Sanson
It said “Take what you like,” but for us to take all three tons of it...

Marie
My dear Sanson, you need to take what you can, when it's offered to you.

Marie
Your modesty is commendable, but it's not good to be too modest.

Marie
What happened to the bold Sanson who readied the guillotine?

Sanson
No... My queen, I didn't actually like the guillotine.
Quite the opposite...

d'Eon
You complain too much, executioner.
Her Majesty said we're taking them.

d'Eon
So we shall help her do it. That's all there is to it.
Fortunately, we have access to Marie's glass carriage.

d'Eon
Carrying a ton or two of snacks is easy.
We should've taken more.

Marie
Heheh. d'Eon understands a maiden's heart.

Marie
They're so delicious! It's natural for a person to want as much as they can carry.

Marie
Okay, say aah♡

d'Eon
Aaah!

Sanson
Wait, you're eating more?!
That's too much!

Sanson
As a man of medicine, I must advise against consuming any more calories. You'll get fat...

Marie
Really, you don't have to worry, Sanson.
Everything I eat goes right to my breasts.

Marie
The more I eat, the bustier I get.
So there's no way I'll get fat.

Sanson
Wh-what...did you...say?!
I-is that true, Marie?!

Sanson
That's medically impossible!
But if it is true, I...I!

d'Eon
...How crude. Sit down and stop panicking.
But it's true, executioner.

d'Eon
Her Majesty has grown to have one of the finest bodies in France. It's truly amazing.

Sanson
—Tell me more! Give me more details!
This is important for medical science!

Marie
It's not medical at all!
It's something all girls have in common!

d'Eon
(...I don't know...I think it's only you, your Majesty,
who doesn't have any fat go to her belly...)

Sanson
—!
Chevalier!

d'Eon
I know! Get back, your Majesty!

Mash
You're all under arrest!
Surrender peacefully, you dumpling thieves!

Marie
Oh, it's you!

Marie
...You're ...You're...
Who are you again? Sanson, do you know them?

Sanson
Of course not.
If you think you do, you're probably imagining it.

Sanson
They're probably bandits, lured here by the light of our campfire.

d'Eon
Indeed.
For once we agree, executioner.

d'Eon
Take up your swords, brigands!
You'll pay for ruining her Majesty's snack time!

Marie
Hm...
I really do think we've met somewhere, though...

Marie
I can't remember it... This is so strange...
I have this feeling that we'd get along great...

Marie
But, now that it's come to this, we shall fight!
Forgive me for the rough welcome, familiar ones!

Marie
I'm sure you have your reasons, but we're enemies now.
I'm not letting you have these dumplings!

Mash
That's Marie for you.
What a selfish declaration of war!

Mash
Let's go, Senpai!
First, let's jog their memories in battle!

--BATTLE--

Sanson
Gah!

d'Eon
Tch... They bested me!

Marie
Auuuggghhh!

Mash
The battle is over.
Now we can talk—

Orion
Wait, Mash. There's one more back there. This presence... It's the same type of loser, just like my darling!

???
Hahaha...hahahaha...
So you saw me. Impressive...

Mash
S-Senpai!
A really shady-looking pervert came out of the shadows!

???
I'm no pervert.
I am Amadeus Mask. The wandering fairy.

Marie
Oh my! Amadeus Mask!
You were following us in secret again?

d'Eon
You again, pervert?
Go back to Vienna!

Sanson
Heh... I can really count on you, huh?
You showed up in our hour of dire peril...

Amadeus Mask
Hehehe... The one I think I'd get along with dislikes me,
and the one I don't care for finds me reliable... What's going on here?

Amadeus Mask
Well, it doesn't matter. Maria is in trouble. I can swallow my pride and work with you, even if I don't want to.

Amadeus Mask
Unknown travelers, prepare yourselves.

Amadeus Mask
It's obvious that Maria and her friends are in the wrong,
but you know, I don't really care.

Amadeus Mask
Let us begin the symphony!
Whew, I'm getting excited!

Amadeus Mask
Can you beat these three true perverts, now that they're orchestrated by me, the God of Music?!

d'Eon
—Wait a moment.
Did you just include me in your statement?!

--BATTLE--

Amadeus
So yeah. A one-star Servant like me has no chance of winning.

d'Eon
You truly are the worst!
All you did was slow us down!

Mash
Did you see that, Senpai? ...When Amadeus' mask slipped off, it hit Sanson on the back of the head...

Mash
...And instantly knocked him out... Is that level of coordination only possible because they've known each other for years?

Marie
Don't worry about that, Mash.
If Sanson was awake this discussion would take longer.

Mash
Marie, do you remember us now?

Marie
Yes, as we were fighting, somewhat.
There's a lot to talk about, but first, here.

Marie
You can have these wonderful confections back.
We had a small amount. I'm sorry.

d'Eon
(A small amount... A small amount?
N-no, if her Majesty says so, then it's fine...)

Mash
No, as long we have them back, it's okay.
We were going to give these equally to everyone...

Mash
Huh? Um...is this all? You were saying there were three tons worth a moment ago...

Marie
That was at the start.
I did load up the carriage, but...

Marie
We ran into a group of three people passing by,
and gave them most of the dumplings as a sign of friendship.

Mash
What?!
You gave them almost three tons worth?

Marie
Of course. When you think about it, no matter how good they are, you can't eat three tons, can you?

d'Eon
Yes, that's right. I would've preferred you to think about that sooner, though.

Mash
That's a very good point, Marie...
So where did the three strangers go?

Marie
They said they were going to pray near the waters of Marseille. If you hurry, you might catch them.

Mash
Senpai!

  1. Yeah, let's hurry, Mash!
  2. Yeah, let's get the grinding going, Mash!
  Select: Yeah, let's hurry, Mash!

  Select: Yeah, let's get the grinding going, Mash!

===Branch End===

Mash
Marie, I'd love to talk more, but we're in a hurry...

Marie
Yes, I know.
Please be careful, Fujimaru.

Marie
May fortune smile upon your journey!
Vive la France! And whassup!

d'Eon
My queen?! (Turns around in shock)

EP 2: Battle at the Coastline

Show/Hide Story Chapter

Georgios
Hmm...

Martha
...

Georgios
...It's quiet.
Very quiet. Don't you think, St. Martha?

Martha
Indeed. The ocean waves are calm tonight.
By the way, St. Georgios...

Georgios
What is it?
Oh, you want a photo?

Georgios
Unfortunately, my specialty is landscapes, not people.

Martha
No one wants one of your photos.
I'm talking about those.

Georgios
Oh, these?
My apologies. It's about time, yes. Will you go first?

Martha
Oh, my. I'm a little embarrassed.

Martha
But I cannot turn down your offer, St. Georgios.

Martha
Excuse me... Aaah.

Martha
Oh! These smell so good, and its texture on the tongue!
It's super-duper yummy—Ahem.

Martha
It tastes splendid.
The wisdom of the East is not to be dismissed.

Georgios
I'll have some for myself—Ahem.
This is...Oho! It's hot! It's hot, but sweet!

Georgios
It seems simple, but you don't tire of it.
It has a smooth surface, but a complex taste.

Georgios
Simple, yet deep.
How to describe it?

Kojirou
You describe it as tasty, you two.
If you'll excuse me, I'll have one myself.

Kojirou
Hmm... Mm...They're bite-sized, but not so small that it's not enough.

Kojirou
These dumplings are clearly the work of a master.
I am in awe.

Kojirou
Truly, you can find geniuses in any era.

Martha
...

Kojirou
What's wrong, Martha?
Is there something stuck on my face?

Martha
No, I was just wondering what that black,
honey-like sauce was.

Martha
I don't want one for myself.
For one thing, I don't trust you.

Martha
You've been tagging along with us for days.
Why don't you tell us what you're after?

Kojirou
My goal is as I spoke of when we first met.
I seek a duel with you. That is all.

Martha
And I refused.
I preach the folly of battle.

Martha
Besides, why must I fight you?
I'm not the type.

Kojirou
Oh?
Is that really true?

Martha
It's true! You sound like you don't believe me!
Are you making fun of me?

Martha
What is your problem, anyway?
Are you even a real samurai?

Kojirou
Hahaha. You saw right through me.
When I have to act like a samurai, I can.

Kojirou
I am a wanderer, I act differently at different times.

Kojirou
But I'm not the only one.
You seem to be carrying such burden as well.

Kojirou
A particularly big one.
Tarasque, was it?

Martha
Huh!? You're after my Tarasque?
Not me!?

Martha
I don't know how many wyverns you've taken down,
but I doubt you can do anything with that skimpy sword?

Martha
Don't underestimate the scales of the Tarasque.
They were thick enough to withstand one of my punches!

Kojirou
Oh, your punches? How interesting.
I thought your weapon was a staff?

Martha
!!!
Oh, how silly of you. Ahahah.

Martha
Perhaps you're hard of hearing?
I'm a saint. I would never punch anyone.

Georgios
Hahaha. Come to think of it, before “He” gave her the staff, St. Martha was completely empty-handed, I'm told.

Georgios
So before you settled in as a Saint, you were fighting dragons with your bare hands, huh?

Georgios
I find that fascinating. As a fellow dragon slayer,
I would've liked to have caught that with my camera.

Martha
I have not punched any dragons! I don't street-brawl anymore, and I've never fought with my bare hands in my life!

Martha
And Georgios, didn't you say you only photographed landscapes?

Mash
...Another set of three Servants.
I guess you could call these the three dragon slayers...

Mash
We're lucky Siegfried isn't here.
...Let's get ready to head in, Master!

Mash
Enough cooking and eating dumplings!
Surrender peacefully to the ropes!

Martha
Huh? What's this about ropes?

Kojirou
She means to not struggle against her. In old Japan they'd tie up criminal's bodies with ropes before taking them away.

Martha
R-Ropes... Couldn't they just tie our hands...
That's crazy, tying up someone's whole body...

Georgios
Criminals?
I've no idea what you're talking about.

Mash
...Um, I'm sorry, Mr. George.
Those dumplings were stolen from Chaldea.

Mash
So I think you became guilty the moment you ate them.

Mash
But if you just give them back, we can forget all about it...

Georgios
...I see.
Even if we didn't know, how could we do such a thing?

Georgios
We paid for this food, but if it was stolen in the first place...

Georgios
Miss, we've never met before, but you seem to be telling the truth.

Georgios
I'll return this bag of food to you.
That is the least we can do.

Mash
Huh...Oh, right.
That would be a big help, but...

  1. We're not...fighting?
  2. I can't believe you actually listened to us!
  Select: We're not...fighting?

  Select: I can't believe you actually listened to us!

===Branch End===

Martha
Of course.
We're famous saints, you know.

Martha
We admit when we're wrong, and strive to correct it.
Though I do wish I could've had some more.

Martha
And only St. Georgios paid any money.
Since I am not at any loss I don't really mind.

Georgios
That's right. Now, please take them.
And return to this “Chaldea” place of yours.

Kojirou
I'm simply a freeloader, so I have no objection.
Battle solves nothing.

Mash
Everyone...
Senpai, let's go back. The mission is complete!

Orion
Hmm? Wait a second.

Orion
That was very touching, but I think that samurai's hiding a rare dumpling in his pocket.

Kojirou
Hmm? Samurai? Do you mean me?

Orion
And the saint has some behind her back, right?

Martha
Wh-what are you talking about?

Georgios
How disgraceful, you two...
I do apologize.

Georgios
I'll stay here. Feel free to take these criminals back with you.

Orion
And you, the man with long hair, your camera pack is stuffed with hidden dumplings.

Georgios
THOU ART A DRAGON!?

Mash
Mr. George...

Georgios
Huh!? What a sharp-eyed lady...
It seems we have no choice but to fight...

Martha
Indeed. It's not fair to call me a thief,
and I want more dumplings anyway.

Martha
Just this once, I'll abandon my holy vows.
Even though they are weightier than Tarasque.

Mash
Tarasque's pretty light then, huh?

Martha
Kojirou, you fight, as well.
You've eaten plenty of free food up until now.

Kojirou
Yes, I've got nothing to do with this, but fair enough.
You shall taste the wrath of my secret blade.

  1. They're coming, Mash!
  2. That's the problem with saints...
  Select: They're coming, Mash!

  Select: That's the problem with saints...

===Branch End===

Mash
Right! They weren't listening to us at all!

--BATTLE--

Georgios
What have I done...
What got into me?

Georgios
It must be the magical energy of the moon that compelled me to use Ascalon.

Georgios
Please realize, milady...
The true enemy...is close at hand... (ka-thud)

  1. Georgios?!
  2. Mr. George!?
  Select: Georgios?!

  Select: Mr. George!?

===Branch End===

Kojirou
...I never before fought out of greed, and now greed has dulled my blade...

Kojirou
In the moment greed took over, my defeat was assured...
Bean paste buns are scary...

Kojirou
Oh, and I was strangely strong not because I'm on my home ground, but because of my class affinity? (ka-thud)

  1. LEGEND OF SAMURAI?!
  2. Kojirou what's-his-name!?
  Select: LEGEND OF SAMURAI?!

  Select: Kojirou what's-his-name!?

===Branch End===

Mash
Both of them died well... We have the dumplings right here, so I'll get some incense for the funeral.

Martha
They haven't disappeared. They're just pretending to pass out because they're embarrassed.

Martha
Men can be so proud over the silliest things.
Who cares if you lose a fight?

Georgios
A brutal strike! DWAH!

Kojirou
Such merciless truth! KWAH!

  1. ...That one really did knock them out.
  2. ...Is she really a saint?
  Select: ...That one really did knock them out.

  Select: ...Is she really a saint?

===Branch End===

Mash
It's true that men and women may have different views on fighting.

Mash
Statistical data shows that women engage in competition on a daily basis, and don't obsess over a single defeat.

Mash
They'd prefer to use the extra calories obsessing over more constructive things, I hear.

  1. Is that true for you, too?
 
  Select: Is that true for you, too?
Mash
I...I don't know. I haven't fought enough to really find value in the outcome of a fight.

===Branch End===

Orion
Hey, guys, I hate to interrupt, but that scary woman is running straight for the sea.

Martha
Hahahaha! It's too late!
Come forth, Tarasque! Scramble ride!

Martha
I'm outta here, kiddies!
Next time we meet, I'll get you for this!

Mash
Oh! The sea parted, and a dragon came out...
No, a turtle? An extremely tired-looking iron dragon?

Mash
Whatever it is, it's spinning up into the sky!

Mash
It looks just like an unidentified flying object, doesn't it, Senpai?

  1. Yeah, that's what everyone thought.
  2. She just made the morning papers.
  Select: Yeah, that's what everyone thought.

  Select: She just made the morning papers.

===Branch End===

Martha
Oh, but as a way of expressing our gratitude for the dumplings...

Martha
Yes, we did buy them off of a strange group in a glass carriage—

Martha
But later we ran into a fat man calling himself an emperor, and gave him the other half.

Martha
He was very skilled at persuasion...A professional debtor.
The type who never pays back what he owes.

Martha
Be careful!
You'll find him in the wasteland!

Orion
Hmm, after saying all that, she just flew off.

Orion
Looks like we've got more work to do.
I don't mind, though. I'm having fun.

Orion
What will you do, Mash, Fujimaru?
If you're going to give up, now might be the time.

Mash
No, we'll get as many dumplings back as we can.

Mash
Let's go, Master.
That fat man is definitely our next foe!

EP 3: Moon Over the Ruined Castle

Show/Hide Story Chapter

Caesar
Not bad. Not bad at all. I prefer plump, delicious fruit, but this is not bad.

Caesar
Excellent form. Easy to transport. Keeps for days.
And more than anything, easy to eat!

Caesar
Yes, yes, yes, yes!
What is this? I can't stop putting them in my mouth!

Caesar
Once you start, you just can't stop! I've got no choice but to eat all the dumplings in the world!

Caligula
WWAAARRHH! NNEERROOO!

Caesar
Heh, I see you're devouring them, too.
You're not a true Roman emperor unless you love to eat.

Caesar
Though I guess I'm not really an emperor.
I just laid the foundations for an empire.

Caligula
WAAARGGHH! FATSO!

Caesar
I am not fat! I am plump!

Orion
There's a huge pile of dumplings behind them...
We finally reached our main target, I guess.

Orion
What will you do?
Try to talk to them?

  1. I don't think that'll work.
  2. Let's heed Martha's warning.
  Select: I don't think that'll work.

  Select: Let's heed Martha's warning.

===Branch End===

Mash
Y-yes... The tyrant Caligula is a Berserker.
We won't be able to talk to him.

Mash
Caesar is a Saber, so we can communicate with him,
but he's also a little TOO good at talking.

Mash
If we try to talk to him, he might just “round” up the conversation in his favor.

Orion
Yeah...He's really...round.

Mash
For now, let's approach them, Senpai.

Mash
If we attack them from the front then we're in accordance with the laws of chivalry, we won't be cowards.

  1. You seem like you're getting angry.
  2. Chival...ry?
  Select: You seem like you're getting angry.

  Select: Chival...ry?

===Branch End===

Mash
Stop acting like a food processor.

Mash
Those provisions belong to Chaldea, not Rome!

Caligula
...? Not...Rome?
Rome...isn't...a dumpling...

Caligula
But great Caesar is...round...
What is...the meaning...of this?

Caesar
Stop comparing me to things that are round!

Caesar
...Sigh. You interrupted my wonderful snack time...
A mess. This is truly a mess.

Caesar
But I guess you've appeared at last.
You're here for these Moon Festival dumplings, right?

Caesar
I managed to embezzle these from that wicked Rider...

Mash
(Senpai, did he just say “embezzle?”
I'm not hearing that wrong, right?)

Caesar
And I have a just reason for doing so.
Well? Will you listen to me, milady?

Caesar
You will, of course! Everyone listens to me!
My speeches are said to be worth their weight in gold!

Caesar
So allow me to tell you how I made these dumplings mine.

Mash
U-um, that's not necessary...
Let's just fight. Yeah. Fight.

Mash
I'm not really interested in the reason.
Please just give them back...

Caesar
Ahem. I haven't introduced myself.
How could I forget?

Caesar
I am none other than the famous flower of Rome,
the Crimson Swordsman, Red Saber!

Mash
Sorry. You're going to get sued for that.

Caligula
Impossible!

Caesar
Hmm, no good, huh?
I thought I could pull it off.

Caesar
And Caligula, you too?

Caesar
Anyway, allow me to continue. Traveling this bountiful land, I encountered a delicious scent.

Caesar
And then—

  1. You came, you saw, you bought! Right?
  2. ... (Deliberately say nothing)
  Select: You came, you saw, you bought! Right?
Mash
I understand how you feel, but be quiet, Master.

  Select: ... (Deliberately say nothing)
Caesar
...No response, huh?
Sad...How very sad...

===Branch End===

Caesar
Anyway, I sensed a wicked plot was involved. Thinking I should probably take action, I confiscated them.

Caesar
But if they were stolen, I can understand your anger.
A sense of righteousness can create stronger feelings than revenge.

Caesar
I dislike fighting. It's a pain.
So let's do this.

Caesar
First, I will trust you, and give you back these dumplings.

Caesar
You will go around and sell them at three times the price, then come back.

Caesar
I'll take the money, and give you no less than double what they're worth!

Caesar
Well? Your gain, not loss, and I get the satisfaction of having trusted you.

Caesar
How about I give them back to you under these terms?

  1. Ooh...So peaceful!
  2. Ooh...Such a rip-off!
  Select: Ooh...So peaceful!
Orion
Calm down, Fujimaru!
Orion
I'm easily tricked, so I'm not one to talk,
but you're being tricked right now!

  Select: Ooh...Such a rip-off!
Mash
That's right, Master.
Mash
Martha was correct.
Talking to Caesar is a waste of time.

===Branch End===

Caesar
Hmm. It didn't work, huh?
I tried copying Cleopatra...

Caesar
But, very well. Fighting it is.
Caligula, prepare yourself.

Caligula
KWAAAOOOHH!
They're clearly in the right, but WWWRROOAAH!

Caesar
Heh. Come, then!
I'll give you a taste of my Crocea Mors!

--BATTLE--

Caligula
GGGNNOOOAAAH!

Caesar
Hmph, there's limits to what I can do as a Saber?!
If only there were a class where I could win more easily.

Mash
Combat complete. We won, Master.

Mash
We'll take the dumplings back, then.
Now we can return to Chaldea—

Mash
Huh? It's so...heavy?!
I was able to carry it before, but...

???
...Nom nom...nom nom...

Orion
Wait, Mash?!
There's someone in the bag!

Caligula
What?
Wait...I'll look...inside...

Caligula
Glory is given...to the victors...
It is not good...to deny them...that...

???
No need.
These belong to me.

Caligula
Gnuh?!

Altera
Oops. Have I cut the bag, as well?
Forgive me. I do not destroy life. (Nom nom)

  1. Something crazy came out?!
  2. Well, he had to be a good guy at the end...
  Select: Something crazy came out?!
Mash
That's um...Who is that?
It's clearly a top-class Servant, but...

  Select: Well, he had to be a good guy at the end...
Caesar
Indeed. I suppose it's Caligula's destiny to be killed through a cloth...

===Branch End===

Orion
No way...Altera?!
What's she doing here?!

Altera
Why are you surprised, woman?
Wherever there is civilization, I appear.

Caesar
Altera? The Great King of the Western World,
a warrior of the Huns, the avatar of destruction?

Caesar
But how did she get here?
And how exactly did she get inside that bag?!

Altera
I walked here, basically.
Rayshift is civilization, so I do not use it.

Caesar
You walked again?!

Orion
...Mash, Fujimaru.
She looks calm, but don't underestimate that woman.

Orion
She's a natural predator, not just of us,
but of you humans.

Orion
She destroys any buildings she sees, as well as some she doesn't see. She doesn't target anything of nature, but she ends up destroying it too.

Orion
She's a giant pain in the neck, who destroys everything around her just by walking.

Altera
That is a misunderstanding.
I do make distinctions.

Altera
In the end, it comes to feelings.
I've realized there are different types of civilization.

Altera
Nom, mmm.
Basically, there are both good and bad civilizations.

Altera
Dumplings are good civilization.
Moon Festival is bad civilization.

Altera
So I am taking these dumplings, nom, and destroying you for having Moon Festivals, nom.

Altera
If you get in my way, I will show no mercy.

Altera
I will use this War God's sword, I happened to find on the ground, to destroy you.

Orion
What do you mean “happened to find?”
Anything you use turns into that thing!

Caesar
Hmm, this is bad. I'll help you!
I can't let what happened to Rome be repeated!

Mash
Master! The mysterious enemy Servant is coming!
We'll fight her with everything we've got!

--BATTLE--

Altera
...Well, that was not successful.
The dumplings were good, though.

Altera
Oh—When will this dream—When will my Noble Phantasm attain its true power—

Mash
Good...The enemy Servant has vanished.
Now we can finally—

Dr. Roman
Whew! Finally made it through!
Hello? Hello?

Dr. Roman
Are you two okay!? I just detected an incredible vortex of magical energy!

Mash
Doctor, are communications back?
...Did you activate the Rayshift?

Dr. Roman
Yeah, I detected the provisions near you,
and activated the Rayshift.

Dr. Roman
You have nothing else left to do, right?
Then hurry and come back to Chaldea.

Dr. Roman
The Moon Festival party will be waiting for you.

Mash
Yes...That's right.
We did achieve our goals, but...

  1. Huh? Where's Orion?
 
  Select: Huh? Where's Orion?

===Branch End===

Mash
That's right. I don't see her anymore.
I wanted to thank her for her help...

Caesar
Hmph. I'm still here.
Do you have any goodbyes for me?

  1. You were useless against Altera.
  2. Want to join us for the Moon Festival at Chaldea?
  Select: You were useless against Altera.
Caesar
I can't help it. It's my class affinity.
I wouldn't be more useful than that woman Archer.

  Select: Want to join us for the Moon Festival at Chaldea?
Caesar
No, thank you. The offer is enough.
Unknown Master, I hope we meet again someday.

===Branch End===

Mash
Thank you for your help, though.

Mash
Just having you on our side was a big help.

Caesar
Yes, it means one less enemy.
You understand war well.

Caesar
And so I shall give you one final warning.

Caesar
When it comes to food, the first owner and the last owner are different.

Caesar
So who is the true owner of these dumplings?

Caesar
Was it the one who prepared them? No.
The one who cooked them? Even less so.

Caesar
Then who do they belong to?
They belong to the one who is last to eat them.

Caesar
You claimed ownership of the dumplings, but from
“that person's” perspective, that's nothing but a joke.

Caesar
Listen well. If you fail to realize this, the truth will remain forever hidden in darkness.

Mash
Caesar, what do you mean?

Caesar
Hahahaha!
Stay hungry, and you'll find the answer someday!

Caesar
Farewell, farewell to you, girl with a bosom that's soft like a dumpling!

Mash
I-I take back my thank you!
I think Rome is a bad civilization!

Dr. Roman
I was a little worried for a while there, but I'm glad to see you both safe.

Dr. Roman
We're handing out all the dumplings you recovered now.
The Moon Festival party will begin soon.

Dr. Roman
Just rest a little until then.

Dr. Roman
I'd love to know what happened out there, but I'll wait.

Dr. Roman
You can tell all the staff about your adventures.

Mash
Sure, but, um...Doctor.
Did you find the cause of the communications problem?

Dr. Roman
O-Oh, no. I couldn't find it.
All our equipment was working normally.

Dr. Roman
But if there was a cause—

Da Vinci
It wouldn't be on Chaldea's side, but your own.

Da Vinci
Some kind of problem should have shown up during the time you Rayshifted and when the comms came back online...

Da Vinci
Fujimaru, any idea?

  1. ...A little.
  2. ...Pick...Up...
  Select: ...A little.

  Select: ...Pick...Up...

===Branch End===

Da Vinci
Well, if it wasn't a problem, you can forget it.
Good work out there!

Da Vinci
Enjoy the rest of your time at the Moon Festival party!

Mash
...Something doesn't feel right.

Mash
I still feel like...
I want some more rare dumplings.

Mash
We haven't caught the thief, and the greatest question still remains.

Mash
Who was that Orion?

EP 4: Does Moon Goddess Dream of Dumplings?

Show/Hide Story Chapter

Mash
Oh?

  1. Huh?
 
  Select: Huh?

===Branch End===

Mash
These...appear to be the hills of France...

Mash
But what are we doing here?
We were gathering rare dumplings...

???
Hehehe. I'll tell you, Mash.

???
“Thank you for all the work you've done for me and Orion. Good job, you two!”

Orion
Just kidding!
Good evening, Master of Chaldea.

Mash
Miss Orion!

Orion
Hey, how've you been, Mash♡ It's a bit late, but do you need an introduction and explanation?

  1. Yeah, I think we kind of do.
  2. No, I think we're good.
  Select: Yeah, I think we kind of do.
Orion
Hehe. Soft on the outside, and prickly where it counts.
I like it.
Orion
All right, time to explain!
I was the one who attacked Chaldea's food supply!
Orion
Or at least, that was the plan.
But it didn't work.
Orion
Um, I virtually proved the causality of being summoned by you, and managed to get into Chaldea,
Orion
but then it was just one failure after another.
Lots of nasty traps kept me out of the storage.
Orion
All I could do was transport your entire storage into the Singularity.
Orion
And once I'd done that, I jumped to retrieve them, but...
Orion
By an unfortunate coincidence, a passing queen got to them before I could.
Orion
You know the rest.
I chased after the dumplings,
Orion
gathered almost enough rare dumplings for the special Craft Essence, and waited for the time of my full revival!

  Select: No, I think we're good.
Orion
R-Really?
Hmm, you don't need an explanation, huh?
Orion
But, that's fine. It makes this easier.
All that's left to do is fight.

===Branch End===

Mash
So you were the real culprit?
But why?

Orion
For the dumplings, of course.
The dumplings.

Orion
The dumplings are a manifestation of faith, created for the moon... An offering to the moon.

Orion
Do you understand? They're a way to win the favor of the gods and bring them here.

Orion
Even if Chaldea didn't intend for it to happen, doing a ritual like that in a place with a summoning system...

Orion
...was enough for me to awaken.
More specifically, it slapped me awake.

Orion
But when I woke up, I was starving.
I didn't have nearly enough magical energy.

Orion
So I wanted dumplings.
The sacrifices that were created for me.

Orion
They are thoughts, created for me.
A rare source of magical energy that exists to feed me.

Mash
Then—for the last few days Senpai and I have been running around to try and revive you!?

Orion
That's right♡
But please don't treat me as evil or anything.

Orion
I'm on your side...well, I'm not.
But, I'm not your enemy.

Orion
If my darling is on your side, then I'm willing to be, too.

Orion
Anyway, thanks to all the rare dumplings that Fujimaru found, I can join your other Servants.

Orion
All that's left is to wait for you to summon me—
But first, don't you think we need to test your skills?

  1. [(M) Agreed. You'll pay for tricking me./(F) Agreed. You're going to regret this.]
  2. Can we talk instead of fight?
  Select: [(M) Agreed. You'll pay for tricking me./(F) Agreed. You're going to regret this.]
Orion
Hmm... I guess you're right.
I didn't trick you, but it is true that I was having fun...

  Select: Can we talk instead of fight?
Orion
Impossible. I don't like humans to start with.
And I dislike the weak ones the most.
Orion
So I want you to show me that you're strong enough to beat selfish, unreasonable, and inhuman old me.
Orion
Otherwise, you can't handle a Servant like me.

===Branch End===

Mash
Sigh...I figured it would end like this.

Mash
But I was kind of ready for it, so it's fine!

Mash
Mash Kyrielight— Ready to go, Master!

  1. Right! Let's beat this goddess, Mash!
 
  Select: Right! Let's beat this goddess, Mash!

===Branch End===

Orion
That's the spirit!
Let me reintroduce myself then.

Orion
I am the deity of moonlight, the elegant representation of purity, virginity, hunting, and eternity—

Orion
One of the ancient gods of Mt. Olympus!
I, the Moon Goddess Artemis, shall test you!

Orion
I hope you do well. Try and beat me, just like my darling did that day♡

--BATTLE--

Artemis
Kyaaahh!
You! Beat! Me!

Mash
We did it! A perfect victory, Master!
We defeated the Moon Goddess Artemis!

Artemis
(Sob, sob) I told you to fight hard, but you didn't have to hit THAT hard... Oww!

Artemis
Now causality is established.
I don't know when we'll meet again.

Artemis
Maybe when we do, I won't remember Mash, or you, Fujimaru.

Artemis
But I have become a part of you. The Moon Goddess shall flow from Olympus to Chaldea.

Mash
No...
Goddess Artemis is disappearing...

Artemis
Aww, silly.
Next time, just call me Artemis, Mash.

Artemis
This is just a temporary goodbye. I'm sure that before long...we'll see each other again on those familiar seas.

Artemis
Until then, goodbye! It wasn't very long, but I enjoyed our Moon Festival night adventure!

Mash
Artemis...disappeared.

  1. We'll see her again.
  2. I hope we can see her again.
  Select: We'll see her again.
Mash
You're right. Even if none of us remember what happened tonight, I'm sure we'll be able to get along.

  Select: I hope we can see her again.
Mash
We will. She loves humanity so much.
I'm sure we'll see her soon.
Mash
I know she said she didn't like humans, but I'm sure that's just because she can't leave us alone.

===Branch End===

Mash
...The dream is ending.
Our night of adventure is coming to a close.

Mash

Good work this time.
I'll see you when you wake up, Senpai.
