Shining the Holy Ark
USA Version Script
Far East Village
Script typed up by: Rune
Young Woman (red):
You have returned after acquiring the Sacred Sword from the shrine, haven't you? Now, by drawing it from it's sheath, Enrich's magic seals can be destroyed.
Young Man (green):
Everyone is talking about how you solved the mystery of the shrine and acquired the Sacred Sword. I knew you weren't just ordinary mercenaries, but I didn't think you would beat me to the Sword... Someday, I will challenge you.
Girl:
Have you seen Akane? She was looking for you. I thought you might have ran into her.
Young Woman (white):
Since Rodi left the village on his mission and Panzer became a rogue Ninja, this village has become pretty quiet. Panzer was adopted by the Lord and raised like his own son, but now he has left the village and no one knows where he is.
Man:
There are a few types of rogue Ninja. I understand some of them just want their freedom and some desire to sharpen their techniques. However, there are some who want to use the techniques secret to the Ninja to rule over others. That's very dangerous and we can't let it happen. I hope there is no one like that...
Woman:
A Ninja is one who shuns the public eye, hides in the darkness, and is soft and yet firm at the same time. Their lack of destructive power is offset by their extreme skill and speed. This is their destiny as Shinobi.
Boy:
You found the treaure in the shrine, haven't you? That's great. Everybody is so surprised.
Lord's House
Satsuki:
You have found the sacred treasure, haven't you? I thought you would, young Lord. So... this is just the beginning of everything, isn't it?
Ukon:
I don't know whether or not I should tell you this, since you have just ended your task of acquiring the Sword but, well, it's about... It's about the rogue Ninja, Panzer. I heard that he has been spotted in Enrich... I'm concerned because the timing is so strange... Since there is such a strong rivalry between him and the young master, I wonder if this might be a problem?
Sae:
You have accomplished your mission here, haven't you? Our Lord is waiting for you so that he can see you before you return to Enrich.
Amuro:
Although people denigrate Panzer because he is abrasive and because he is a rogue Ninja, I wonder if they would say the same things if they knew more about the circumstances that he lives with... He is misjudged by people just because he accepts his situation and he is courageous. Akane understands this and waits for Panzer. She shares his grief. Poor Akane...
Lord:
You have found the Sacred Sword! Good work! However, Rilix must already know that you have the sword... There is no time to waste.
Lord:
I had Doyle check out Enrich Castle, and the castle gates are sealed. It looks like the witch is not going to let you in.
Lord:
But don't worry. We have resources. Doyle, come here!
Doyle appears and drops to the floor.
Lord:
Doyle, what has happened!?
Doyle throws a dagger across the room where it is blocked by something and falls to the ground. Panzer suddenly appears there.
Lord:
What! Panzer!
Lord:
You did this to Doyle, didn't you? You've joined Rilix... This is how you repay me for bringing you up!
Panzer:
I have done enough for you already. I have done everything according to the village law. And I have mastered all of your techniques well enough to do this.
Panzer:
What was there for me after that? I have endured hard training and privations to learn, but now... there is nothing left... Nothing!
Panzer:
After I left the village, I learned just how much better Ninjas are than others! We can do anything with these techniques. I wanted to ask you, Lord. Why do you not utilize these techniques? Why don't you let the world know who their betters are?
Lord:
You just do not understand, do you, Panzer? If we challenge the world with our might, we may be able to defeat the King and form a land of our own. However, with land comes the responsibility to protect the lives and well being of its residents. We cannot do that with our fighting skills alone.
Panzer:
Lord, you haven't changed... But if you don't change your mind, I will be forced to make you my enemy. I won't pull any punches.
Panzer:
You and... Rodi, have done well, but now you must give me the Sacred Sword. If you use it, it will be your downfall. I do not know all of its powers, but you're better off getting rid of it.
Lord:
You haven't learned anything, Panzer... Or maybe it is because of what you really are...
Panzer:
Whay did you say?!? Do you think its the blood that runs through my veins that makes me do this? No matter what you say or what you think, I can't... go back now!
Panzer:
I have wasted enough time talking. I can't wait any longer. Your time is up now! Give me that sword!
Panzer begins to gather his energy and readies for a magical attack.
Akane:
I can't let you do that!
Akane appears and Panzer stops his attack.
Panzer:
Akane...
Akane:
Panzer...
Panzer:
I thought you left the village on a secret mission...
Akane:
Why, Panzer, why? I can't believe that you sided with the Vandals and are doing this... I just can't.
Panzer:
My eyes were finally opened... I realized that... there was a path I had to follow. I can't go back now.
Akane:
If you are my father's enemy, then you are now my enemy too. I'll be your first opponent.
Panzer:
Do you think you have a chance against me? Are you really serious? I guess you are!
Panzer:
This is not the time, but our day will come. I don't want to fight you, Akane. I'll leave this for another time!
Panzer vanishes.
Doyle:
Ouch! Damn! Panzer, you've really hacked me off now!
Doyle:
Panzer has gotten much stronger. He... He surprised me with his superior strength!
Akane:
Are you OK... Doyle? I'm sorry... I couldn't...
Doyle:
I'll be fine. I know how you feel, Akane... Panzer, that fool!
Lord:
It must be difficult for you, Akane, but you have done well. And your mission? Did things go well? Then, the route from the well to the throne room is still open? Excellent. As you just heard, there is a route to the King through the underground waterways. Enter the hidden route from the well and proceed along the waterway in a northeast direction until you get to the wooden pier...
Akane:
Father, please let me go too... I believe it will be harder for Panzer to attack us if I am part of the group.
Lord:
Well... You are correct.
Lord:
As you see, I give my permission for her to go. She is an excellent Kunoichi. You don't have to worry about her. Take her with you.
Narrator:
Akane, the Kunoichi, has joined the group.
Akane:
I'll tell you about the hidden route when we get to the underground waterway. We must hurry to Enrich Castle.
Doyle disappears.
Lord:
Well then, good luck. We're counting on you.
Lord:
To get to the hidden path to the throne room, use the waterway of Enrich. Follow Akane's directions from there.
