Sengoku Horizon

Look towards the Horizon

The Warring States Period: Fierce warlords fought for control of Japan, and many would perish. When a warrior falls, where does the passion they once held go? Possibly into something dear such as a favorite weapon or heirloom. These heirlooms have been labeled as “relics”, and those that carry them are labeled as “Scions." Recently more and more of these special relics have been activating, signaling the start of a great change as ancient power meets the modern world!

Now For The Local News, 06/01/2018 The Chinese delegation have now arrived at the city of Edo. Making friends and learning about Edo Culture is their current aim! In other news it is also time for the school dance event! Please bring your characters along!

Even for the diplomatically minded Shinuske it was getting a little difficult to remain polite and proper in the face of veiled insults. Though he spoke nothing directly it seemed clear by his tone he didn't have high expectations for Japan. Shinsuke just barely managed to avoid dropping his facade in the face of that attitude, though hints of a frown were evident. This was neither the place nor the time for picking a fight with someone, even if it were just a battle of words. Thankfully the bodyguard was a bit more levelheaded than the teenage boys were liable to be and broke things up.

"I do hope we can prove capable by the lofty standards such distinguished visitors must hold," Shinsuke spoke a bit more forcefully than usual as the pair walked away. Almost immediately he turned to Nobuyori and shook his head, "Well, that went well.."

Inori, who'd managed to contain herself to this point, jumped in quietly, "Lotta nerve he's got actin' like that to people who came to welcome 'em all. Maybe I can show him just what a Japanese warrior can do!"

Shinsuke looked to his sister, back to his friend, and then sighed, "Just.. please don't do anything too drastic, okay? That's all I ask."

Kumori, meanwhile, was having a lot more success in speaking to another member of the visiting delegation. This was a far more enjoyable endeavor than any of the battles she'd been through in the past year. That trip to Nara had done wonders for her mind and spirit, and it showed in her serene expression. Some of the Chinese visitors were quite proud as Scions (or Inheritors, depending on the term) could be, based on the lineage of their relics. This young man at least was quite polite and pleasant to speak with.

"It will be my privilege to present the ceremony for everyone who wants to come," Kumori remarked as she took her phone out to make a memo of the need for special preparations. The status of the visitors demanded a proper level of professionalism. Moments later she had the young man's contact information, the first new addition to that since.. well, it'd been a while, that was for sure.

Eventually everyone ended up heading to a nearby cafe for breakfast and caffeinated beverages. Shinsuke stuck with his Azai friend just in case any further sparks flew over the morning meal. Not just to make amends for unfortunate word choices, but also to jump to the defense of the Azai boy and Japan in general. Meanwhile Inori was kind of hovering around the periphery with a pair of overly sweet looking strawberry pastries and a cup of black coffee. The drink choice was the influence of her aunt Suzume on her; the Todo clan's most outspoken warrior refused to allow anything but the beans themselves to be put into the drink. Though it was a bit bitter Inori had grown accustomed to the taste. It'd make her strong like her aunt! Strength was also on her mind as she watched the Inheritor of Lu Bu from a distance. That girl sure didn't look super strong but that probably just meant she was really strong. That alone was enough to keep Inori leaning over her plate as she observed the girl's every movement.

"Lu Bu.. that's pretty darn cool.." she remarked with all the tone of a fan girl in the making.

Kumori, meanwhile, took up a seat near the teachers. She was quite heavily invested in this idea of a tea ceremony now and wanted to review a few things. Not the least of which were the stores of tea itself that she had access to, and whether or not she'd need to go shopping for more.

The day had proven to be....interesting to say the least. Hoshi had once again overslept and rushed about getting dressed, apparently people from China were coming over for a visit. She was rather curious about what kind of people would they be? Hoshi geared up, strapping her naginata across her back and with a liberal usage of Blinkstep raced to the harbor and watched from a nearby fisherman's stall. Thankfully, there were no crows nearby and the seagulls seemed more interested in things not nearby. At first, it looked like things were going going well, but she must've missed something because one of the boys from Bugei looked like he went for a swim and his body language indicated a foul mood.

Hoshi waited for a couple seconds as the people started walking away before following at a discrete distance. Her small body sliding between people and flowing through crowds until they reached a cafe. Now she had a dilemma. Would she join the group with the gaijin? Or sit by herself somewhere else? She wanted to practice her stealth skills, so going into the cafe where she would most likely be spotted by the Chinese was not the best option. She opted for a place with an outdoor eating area that served gellato. "Itakadimasu." She could barely speak above a loud whisper without hurting her throat.

She started spooning the custard goodness into her mouth. The smooth, cool treat made the near constant pain fade as she smiled brightly. She today was certainly going to be interesting indeed.

As the Chinese leader acknowledged her observation, she noticed on of the students had taken an interest in both her and her comrade. Naturally, warmth rushes through in her in sweet genuineness. Of course, she didn't mean to frighten her teachers with the bold acclamation- but as anyone else could probably imagine, she said the words no one else was brave enough to say.

Smiling, she had motives to address everyone personally out of courtesy, but instead her attention averted completely to Makoto. Humming in wise observation, she knew exactly why she'd captured his attention, if only for a moment. They were both spear-women, and very powerful ones at that. With that she threw a smug glance to the Chinese scion, seeming to know all in those few moments.

Despite the brief exchange, the Chinese had managed to woo her if not for all the wrong reasons, she didn't mean to eavesdrop on the conversation, she was simply going to discuss the boy's interest if that was really what he wanted. Yet she couldn't hold back to chuckle as she made her way over there.

Something about a red head wanting to fight three warrior clans, either all at once or one and one. It was 'laughable' at best- her determination at least. As a Sanada herself, the idea sounded wonderful-on paper.

She knew it was important to the reputation of her school to not indulge her like that. At least not right away. Her main focus at the moment was mingling within the group as much as she could, slowly and methodologically, she imagined it'd be great to make a lasting and, by every Deity, positive impression on the foreigners.

The trip to the cafe was as explorative for the foreigners as it was for Hana herself. Her life hadn't revolved around such frivolity, exploring parts of Japan, not only for recreation but for anything at all, was something of a childhood memory- blurred out and pressed into a diary like a wilting flower.


Kept in mind, she was actually excited to have come to this otherwise, quaint little cafe. Unlike the outside, inside was cheery and bright. With rich and colorful scents wafting through the air from every direction. As the doors swung open to let the band of students and teachers in, what little patrons kept silent for a few rushing moments, just before returning to their own private conversations.

With so much food around her, it was overwhelming to order anything at all, but eventually she'd settled on a few crepes, filled with strawberries and peaches as well as a more traditional style she was used to. With both Nabeyaki Udon and natto, rice and fried egg, it was something she considered very light in terms of the-sometimes- over 6 course meals she'd gotten accustomed to from home. Once she had what she wanted, she made her way back to the two that had caught her eye from earlier.

"Chao Guang, Fai Cheng," She called out, hoping she'd gotten their names right and in the correct order Though she wanted to talk with Fai- she understood that Chao Guang was his superior. Being as polite as she could, the last thing she wanted was for them to have a bitter taste when it came to her. "Would you mind if I joined you for breakfast?"

Sen-Gen: Ripley had heard of the band before, and though they hadn’t extensively listened to their music it was popular enough nowadays that it was hard not to have heard of them. Ripley didn’t mind what they’d heard of their songs and when they took the headphones to listen for a moment they found themselves tapping a foot along with it. “Heard of ‘em and been meaning to listen to more of their stuff. They’ve got good beats, I’ll tell you that.” Ripley said, returning the headphones. “Any songs you'd suggest to a Sen-Gen newb?”

Ripley whistled. French cafe, and paid for? Sweet. This would be a prime opportunity to order something extravagant without worrying about the cost.

“How long you guys gonna be in Edo?” Ripley asked Fangyuan as they walked to the cafe.

The cafe was a nice place. It was fairly spacious for a cafe, but the decor was good and the smell was even better. They ordered a strong latte and some kind of breakfast crepe - they didn't exactly know what it was but it sounded fancy and was expensive compared to most of the other things on the menu - and joined Fangyuan’s table. “You into any other Japanese bands or just Sen-Gen?”
---------------------------------
Mirai cleared her throat. The question was about the clean-up and that at least was something Mirai could talk about a little - she'd been involved with parts of it after all, and it wasn't something she felt any particular turmoil over.“Everyone worked hard to fix things. I think that's why it seems so normal.”

Edo Bugei seemed to have done all they could to try to make the Chinese students feel welcome - they were taking care of the luggage, inviting them into the dorms with the other students, and now they were even offering an all-expenses paid breakfast. It was nice of the school to offer to do that.

The smell hit her as soon as she walked in. Oh boy, this was going to be delicious. Mirai ordered black coffee and simple lemon and sugar crepes. She decided to try talking to another of the Chinese students, simply to meet more of them than just the one. She headed towards Zihao and Yiting’s large table. “Is it OK if I sit here?”

As Everyone left for the restaurant Nobuyori wasn't extremely quick to follow. After all he really didn't feel connected to any of the foreign students in particular as of yet. To compound things he was also from a clan with a strong naval presence. In light of that he couldn't help but want to spend as much time as possible looking at the foreign vessel.

He had seen vessels like this in paintings, and online, but he had never seen one this large and this close before. It was clearly different from the brunes that the samurai used, and with it's four giant sails meant to catch the wind instead of relying on rowing strength, it could likely cute across the ocean at truly great speeds. The problem, however, was that the sails seemed to be most of it's power. If it lost the sails, or worse yet lost the favor of the wind, the vessel would likely be stuck and could easily be destroyed by cannons, fire arrows, or even worse, enemy scions.

Regardless of how he looked at it, it was clearly a travel vessel made for scouting and quick travel, and not for war. Though with seven scions aboard, the ship never had to have firepower of it's own. It's deep haul also could likely fit a large group of soldiers, or in a more positive scenario could fit quite a lot of trade goods. With his quick analysis of the ship complete he looked off into the distance to see the direction the group was going and decided it best to follow.

Arriving at the cafe he looked around and saw everyone having a good time. Well, aside from a familiar face. Kire seemed rather beat up, but didn't appear in the mood to talk at the moment as Nobuyori sat with the Todo siblings after ordering a green tea latte.

NPC POST

(Last round of posting!)

On the way to the cafe Makot made a simple request.
"You know, if we do fight, I think it only fair you tell me about your style, since you can clearly see what I favor." at this the Chinese girl couldn't help but laugh and smile. After all she was the inheritor of Lu Bu and would gladly explain all of her power.
"I use a Chinese Halberd. with blades on both side. I also use, raw strength." she said with a wicked grin. In her heart she was sad that they couldn't simply fight in the street, but she knew neither China nor Japan would allow such a thing.
"I look forward to the fight." she said in perfect Japanese. She had clearly practiced the phrase many times before arriving in Edo and the smile on her face was pure, and large. It was clear that Makoto had actively signed herself up for one hell of a battle later on. Meanwhile Roshi loudly explained about the battle for Edo, something that seemed to catch the ear of all of the Chinese students. After al, the entire group had heard about the battle and felt curious to hear about it first hand from a participant. After Roshi's explanation a few quick words would be exchanged between the group, mostly that sounds like agreement on facts. Suishoku also backed up Roshi's words.

Meanwhile Ripley chatted with Fangyuan.
“How long you guys gonna be in Edo?” they asked as Fangyuan looked to her Head Teacher and the others before answering Ripley.
"We will be here for a few months." she said in very polite Japanese. It was vague but the best Fangyuan could think to say. After all even she wasn't sure. It depends on quite a lot of factors at the moment. Though as the conversation shifted back to her much adored Sen-Gen she smiled.
"Bodies" she said as she suggested a song. It was a rather dark song and she didn't look as though she would enjoy death metal, but it was what it was.
“You into any other Japanese bands or just Sen-Gen?” Ripley asked but Fangyuan shook her head a bit.
"not really, no. sorry." and with that they had arrived at the cafe.

At the cafe everyone seemed to be getting seated. The first was Mika, sitting near Zihao. The nobleman looked at her and smiled, politely nodding as she took as eat. It was clear she didn't wish much for conversation and he had no intention of forcing her into such at thing. Rin also seemed to sit at what was quickly seeming like the quiet table. Mirai seemed the only one who bothered to speak.
“Is it OK if I sit here?” she asked Zihao who looked up a bit surprised by someone actually talking.
"Huh? Sure." he said before returning to his food. It had been a bit since either he or his bodyguard had eaten food this unique and he was quite excited.

Meanwhile Suishoku sat with Jiao
" “Looks good,” she complimented as Jiao smiled.
"Thank you." Jiao's face seemed to have a genuine smile over the quality of the food. All of the Chinese students seemed to be rather happy with what they had ordered and reasonably surprised at the quality of the meal. Even their leader nodded to Headmaster Hosokawa.
"This is quite delicious." he said. The Headmaster simply laughed a bit.
"Well now, I can't take you to a bad place when you just arrived can I?" it was clear he was in a great mood at the happenings of the morning, now that the chaos from the dock had settled down.

Jugemu seemed to be trying to adjust to her new position with the staff, fortunately Kumori seemed to sit near by her as Kire slipped out and came back looking rather beat up. More than likely he had just deeply offended someone and as both he and the teacher got dark black coffee, neither seemed particularly interested in talking at the moment. Sitting near Kire would be a pair of siblings, the Kotan siblings, who gossiped and not so quietly watched the Chinese students with curious expression. The cafe was quite packed and surprisingly lively this morning. Even outside the cafe a student named Hoshi sat looking inside at the students.

Near the window Jinn sat, the tiny strategist of the Chinese students, Fangyuan gazed over at him peacefully.
"You are quite daring." she said softly as she took a sip of her drink. Even if she thought Jinn was absolutely foolish, to deny his clearly massive level of guts and bravado would have been foolish. So she gave him the best compliment she could, considering the situation that had taken place.

Over at the Azai/Todo table Inori would catch a smile and look from the inheritor of Lu-Bu, somehow seeming to catch her words as she laughed.
"Of course I am great!" she proudly declared to the entire cafe as Fangyuan shot her a glare and Xiahou Dun's inheritor simply sighed a bit. At the same time Hana walked over to two of the chinese students.
"Would you mind if I joined you for breakfast?" she asked Chao Guang and Fai Cheng. The two looked up and smiled as Chao swept his arm a bit.
"Please be seated." he said with a smile.
"Thank you for joining us." Fai said, practicing his Japanese.

"Of course I am great!" The Chinese girl's shout rang also in the ears of Youri inside the Cafe.

"Tsk, what a boor kiddo." He growled in his gritted teeth. That was the last drop which flooded the vase.

"Youri, stop it..!" Kayoko whispered back sharply at the edge of her toleration too.

It became hard even to enjoy this peaceful meeting, with the situation getting more and more tense as the situation kept to remain for him on a razor's edge.
Not wanting to cause any mess in the public place, he finished his cup of tea in few sips, he cleaned his mouth on the napkin and stood up while tossing it on the table indecorously, which immediately alarmed the young girl in front of him.

"And now where are you going? Don't do anything silly--!"

"I need to get out from here, sister, this place is making me sick." He lastly said to her before he actually left the place to chill outside under a different ambient. He felt like lift from his tensions that were only growing in a dangerous way in his body.
Finally a breath of air. He thought as he slipped his hands in his pockets and rested his back on a wall of the building.
The words exchanged inside were of no importance for him now, he'll just wait for the "meeting" to end and to return in the Academy with his sister.

Kayoko remained alone in the end, with her half empty cup held in her hands mid-air and her worried expression pointed in the direction of the exit door. Whatever he saw or felt, it wasn't good, that was for sure.

Huh, guess we'll need to talk later. I can't see him like that again. She thought as her head returned low on the cup with a thoughtful frown, staring at her own reflection over the infused water and wondering how she could handle this situation as well.

Everyone in the cafe could hear the Lu Bu Inheritor's laugh and proclamation, and the Todos reacted differently. Shinsuke was embarrassed that his sister's comment had triggered the outburst and blushed at the whole situation. A glance to Inori with a bit of a disappointed look in his eyes said the entire story. Really it was a mix of disappointment at both girls' outbursts and annoyance that his sister had attracted attention the way she had. This was meant to be a nice relaxing breakfast for them all and now it'd gotten a bit more awkward. It was all right to be proud of yourself, but not to the point that this girl was.

"Well, this is going to be an interesting experience for everyone," he remarked, glancing to Nobuyori to check how his friend was doing in the still heated environment.

"She seems neat to me," Inori remarked as she sipped her drink.

Inori meanwhile was pretty satisfied that the strong Chinese girl had actually heard her speaking. She'd always had a lot of interest in really strong girls, and this one was an excellent example of one. Maybe even more powerful than her aunt Suzume with some extensive training! It wasn't clear how much training the Chinese students had undergone to this point, so Inori couldn't say for sure how technically skilled she was. What she could say was that given the girl's relic she probably possessed some raw power if nothing else. While others were reacting in annoyance or anger, Inori grinned at Lu Bu's Inheritor and gave a thumbs-up. Clearly the girl had at least one fan.

Kumori, meanwhile, just watched everyone as they interacted over breakfast. Having only just met all of the visitors she wasn't completely certain which of them would be problems or if any of them would. That one girl seemed like trouble, but then again you couldn't tell just from first impressions. Or at least you should reserve judgement a little bit. Regardless she was at least satisfied that nobody was going to try and disrupt the peace with anything more than words for now. That was enough to allow her to continue mentally planning for a proper tea ceremony.. while humming one of the songs she'd written in her net idol days.

Jugemu smiled and answered when she was addressed but she did not volunteer herself to conversation. It was far more interesting to see these foreign students interact with the local students. There appeared to be some friction, some possible friendships, and quite a lot of potential. Jugemu felt quite sure that the Chinese delegation had chosen some of their best students, or maybe just the most powerful ones. There was a difference after all. Regardless, she would not want to fight them in a fair contest.

Her dessert arrived and she examined it with glee. What a lovely little tart. She reached into her apron pockets and pulled out a small paper package which she tore and sprinkled onto the dish. Nothing like a little special addition to make the flavors explode. She took the first bite and chewed slowly, examining all the flavors. A habit that could save a life, or steal a recipe, she'd be quite happy with either.

Kire was not enjoying his offering. The dishwater sat in front of him like the dark cloud over his head. He stared at it and resigned himself to suffering. With little recourse, he pulled out his phone and decided to try the translation software again. It was crowded and he was closer but it seemed that Japanese was the current language exclusively. Well, that was fine, if unhelpful. But nothing seemed to be helpful today.

He frowned when he heard one of the foreign girls boasting. Well, maybe she was, maybe she wasn't. But greatness with artifacts alone was hardly great at all. It took somebody with real skill to become great. But he wouldn't speak up, he was being diplomatic. They ought to give him another medal. Maybe he could collect enough to make them into something that mattered.

Kire pushed the glass away from him. Well maybe he could meet one of them in the dorms and get a look at the kinds of weapons that they made for students in China. Imports just simply were not indicative. Maybe he could show off some of his own work, broaden the market, have his name spread internationally. That would be pretty neat.

Jinn snapped out of his day dream like state when someone suddenly talked to him. Jinn wasn't expecting anyone to talk to him let stand give him a compliment? He looked at her with his lazy yet tired looking eyes but there was something more in his eyes though. Like a small fire that was burning deep inside of him if someone looked deep enough in his eyes.

"Thanks. You know, you have quite beautiful eyes." Jinn said in a calm yet friendly tone towards her. He smiled a bit towards her before he started looking outside again.

Jinn maybe had lots of guts although he had a brain with it which he didn't show allot unless he needed to. It was funny to him no one really saw it because of his attitude towards everything.

So, things were doing rather well in the cafe. Good times, for both the locals and their foreign visitors. Makoto was, at this time, thinking about what Jiao had told her. Since the Chinese girl had decided to divulge a bit of info, she was just using this moment to consider that. After all, nobody seemed intent to speak with her, for the moment.

So, she and I may have similar styles... The only real difference is that her weapon has blades on both ends, and I can have effectively two weapons in MY hands.

Makoto actually wondered - She'd never actually tried this - if her yari would reassemble from the two halves back together backwards, as in with the two blades facing away from each other. Probably not, though. They might not line up properly. Still, this was useful to her. Now...they had a basic idea of what to expect from each other, and they both had - most likely - a few secrets that could only be revealed through battle, such as the way her weapon divided itself down the shaft and blade.

Suddenly, someone plunked down into the seat next to her. She was startled, but then calmed down a bit when she saw it was a smiling Roshi Bento.

"I see you're still being yourself, even around foreigners. Though, why were you...? Why did it look like you were threatening them?"

"Oh, I wasn't, really. It was more of...'This isn't where you want to pick a fight'. You know, just in case. I mean, the hat guy was a foreigner. I don't want any bad foreigners getting any ideas from him."

"This was the 'Kill Everyone' guy, right?"

"Yeah."

"Okay, I can see that, but ummm..."

She began to chuckle.

"I may have made you out to be some kind of secret badass to them. Spooky, scary artist, hiding behind a friendly mask!"

Indeed? Roshi Bento, hiding something beneath his goofy facade? Huh...

"I've attracted some attention myself, though."

"Oh? Like what? A date?"

"A fight."

"Why're you picking a fight?"

"I didn't! She did, because she likes battling strong people."

Well, there were people like that, all over, but Roshi found it strange that anyone would travel to other countries in the world - without being an enemy to the people they meet - just to fight. Oh well... They weren't going to be trouble. They actually seemed quite nice...for the most part.

So they did know a bit of Japanese, impressive. It made her happy to know at least they were nice enough to try and learn some aspect of the country they were visit. It made the whole experience more...worthwhile.

Unfortunately, whether or not Hana could speak Chinese to them was a mystery. It would've been plausible, as Chinese was the language of the Imperial Court for a period of time- but whatever she knew was basically textbook regardless.

With her request accepted however, she took the seat directly in front of the too, her own hands being careful not to spill any aspect of her breakfast, or raise her hands higher than they should've been. It frustrated her to know end, but that didn't mean she could show it. She wanted to be cultural- she wanted to be fashion forward too, so naturally she'd suffer for it.

"谢谢你让我。"

She said to Fai, hoping it sounded as good as it did in her own mind, she shouldn't have pushed herself to remember things such as that- especially when it didn't matter now, but the situation found it reasonable and she didn't want to seem like she just didn't care or anything.

"So, how have you been liking Japan so far? Have you seen anything interesting that you'd like to explore later?"

She grew mildly inquisitive, seeing as they'd only just arrived. However, the later of her sentence was a hopeful one, if so be the case, then she'd be seeing a good amount of Japan without an escort or family member for the first time.

"Chocolate banana with extra cinnamon. What kind you get?"

Sugar in the morning felt wonderful and vital that it was a shame that there wasn't a coffee ice cream styled crepe. Suishoku pondered if the shop took recommendations on combinations but that would be a bit rude. Her eyes looked up from her snack to ponder what the girl in the red Chinese dress had. "There any place you would like to see later on in Edo? My friend and I know a few places but we're not sure what would interest the group," she thought to chat a bit and probe for any guidelines. The tour idea was just a spur of the moment offer thanks to the change in scenery of the boat.

She looked around the somewhat full cafe and marveled at how busy it looked. Teacher and students like this with a few transfer students even. These students must be lucky if not the luckiest to have their first day to hit off at a french cafe than go straight to the school. "It must have been pretty cool sailing on a ship like that."

Mika nodded and ate with mild acceptance that these two were oddly tolerable people unlike the strange looks that one girl gave her. Thankfully that person sat off at a different table as she dined with what looks to be the one with the highest social class of the lot. The person with them a guard of some kind. This reminded her that she still would like to acquire one somehow than turn around getting some nanny from her family. She bit into her meal with a small nod of approval in the fusion of a lunch and a breakfast wrap, an intriguing thing about these westerner fashions, when a girl she had not seen in awhile arrived to the table.

It was...someone that frankly looked familiar but the name was gone. Her name could have been an easy name to remember but after a few attempts to bring it up properly, however, Mika only nodded and returned to her meal as they tried to make light talk with the main Chinese student at the table. There hasn't been many opportunities to talk with them or at all and as frail of a memory that encounter was, Mika began to think that's all it was. Another frail thing with people. She took a bite of her tuna salad crepe and avoided further eye contact.

Mirai bowed her head before she sat. “Thank you.” She smiled at Mika as she took her seat. It had been awhile since she’d seen the other girl, too long actually; she made a mental note that they ought to hang out more sometime.

She dug into her crepes and they were the best she had ever tasted. The perfect texture, the perfect level of sweetness - it was fantastic, and Mirai could see why they chose it as a place to introduce the Chinese students to Edo. It must be such a nice treat for them. “It’s so good,” she said after swallowing the first bite.

So they’d be here a few months? That was pretty cool. It was better than just a few weeks certainly. “Exciting. You’ll have a real chance to experience the country. In my opinion you need more than a couple of weeks somewhere to really get the full experience out of it.” They paused. “Say, everything must be pretty different here. Must be a lot to work out on your own. Hell, I know it was when I first moved here from Osaka. If you’d like I’m happy to show you around Edo properly. Might make things a bit easier for you.”

Bodies, huh? Sounded suitably gory. “I’ll have to give it a listen.”

She didn't know any other Japanese bands, though. Ripley supposed she’d be more knowledgeable about Chinese bands. Oh well. "Ah, well. Makes sense that you wouldn't. Maybe you'll find more after being here, ey?"

There was a guy at the table who Ripley could have sworn they recognised - their lips curled into as smile as they remembered with appearance from the water and that whole debacle. Fangyuan complimented his daring and Ripley nodded. “ 'Twas indeed. Not sure why you did it but you livened up the day, that’s for sure.”

Hoshi watched the group from her bench. The Chinese Scions seemed to be more at ease after whatever had happened at the docks. She casually walked towards the cage, looking in the windows of the buildings as she got closer.

She entered the cafe and sat not too far from from the group and enjoyed a sandwich, listening in. Since it was all out of context, some of it sounded either really morbid, as in the case where someone simply said 'Bodies' Do I really want to know what that's about? Or bizarre, so people from China fight others that they're interested in? She would probably never understand what the flippity flip flap was going on. Still, she glanced at some of the Chinese Scions, handsome, pretty, pretty, handsome, handsome. They certainly looked like what a scion should in the propaganda works. Strong, confident, Hoshi couldn't help feeling a bit jealous.
