Sara and co. continue to look for leads on the mysterious "Seven Wonders" around the school while Stahn and Leon infiltrate the school as students. Stahn and Leon have become increasingly popular among the student body, and Muzet even comes to join the festival! With Muzet's help, the party manage to find the mysterious "Seven Wonders," but their goal appears to be to cause slight discomfort among the student body. With such a peculiar objective, what could the Seven Wonders really be up to?

|Girl Student|| The Poliwigle-Watching Club's presentation is being held this way!|
Don't miss it!
|Boy Student||Our class has made our legendary Mabo Curry! Make sure to grab a bowl!|
|Sara||Wow, this fair is really hopping, (user)! I've never been to a school festival before.|
|Lippy||It has a very different energy from the municipal festivals we've attended in the past, doesn't it?|
|Lippy||The youthfulness of our hosts gives the event such vitality!|
|Sara||Yeah. I wish we could just walk around and enjoy it, but...|
|Sara||We've got to find Stahn and Leon and see how the "infiltration" is faring.|
|Stahn||This way we can thoroughly investigate the school, inside and out!|
|Stahn||Leon and I will investigate from within, while you guys research the phenomena from the outside.|
|Stahn||We'll each find out all we can, then meet up to compare notes!|
|Lippy||After three weeks of conducting door-to-door interviews...|
|Lippy||...we're still lacking solid leads as to what's going on in this school.|
|Sara||Well, Stahn and Leon have been attending classes for a while now.|
|Sara||I'm sure that when we compare what we've each learned, some of the pieces will start to fit together.|
|Lippy||I do hope so! Let's find them and get started!|
|Sara||All right, this should be the rendezvous spot. I hope they made it.|
|???||Hi there, (user)! Hey Sara, Lippy. Good to see ya.|
|Stahn||Quite a turnout at the fair, huh? Glad you could make it.|
|Sara||Uh, what's that you've got there, Stahn?|
|Stahn||Oh, it's takoyaki. Our class made it for the fair.|
|Stahn||I was working the booth, and when I said I was going out to meet someone, they asked me to advertise it a bit.|
|Stahn|| It's a powerful coupling of fresh octopus and savory okonomiyaki!|
...That's our marketing slogan.
|Stahn||And not only are the ingredients high quality, but my class has developed a new way to cook it!|
|Stahn||That's why we're selling our takoyaki under the name "Flaming Octopus." Try one!|
|Lippy||Your marketing campaign is certainly... aggressive.|
|Student A||Yo, Stahn! Sorry to cut in, bro. But thanks for your help hauling in those materials.|
|Stahn||Ah, no problem, bro! It was no big!|
|Student A||Still, I owe ya one, bro. I'll buy you a mabo curry at the cafeteria next time.|
|Stahn|| No worries, bro. If there's anything else I can
help with, you just hit me up, all right?
|Student B||Hey, Stahn! Thanks for saving me from those bullies the other day. I owe you big.|
|Stahn||You know I got your back, bro! But it wouldn't hurt for you to toughen up a bit, too. Wanna hit the weight room later?|
|Student B||Sure, that'd be great! Thanks!|
|Sara||Wow, you've certainly adapted to school life quickly, Stahn.|
|Stahn||At first I was all about our mission, but all anyone wanted to talk about was this school fair...|
|Stahn||So I helped out whenever some muscle was needed and, well, I guess I made a few friends along the way. Heh heh.|
|???||The amount of time you've wasted on this nonsense is staggering.|
|Lippy||Sir Leon... You don't seem to have enmeshed yourself into school life as thoroughly as Stahn has...|
|Leon||Of course not. I didn't come here to make takoyaki!|
|Leon||If my "partner" was more focused on his mission than living out his schoolboy fantasies, we'd have made more headway!|
|Stahn||Hey, I'm totally focused on the job! The friends I'm making are providing all sorts of great information!|
|Leon||All they've done is repeat the same thin rumors that Elize told us. We've no actionable intel at all.|
|???||As if you're generating any great leads by moping around all day, Leon!|
|Stahn||Hey, Elize! Hi Teepo!|
|Elize||Good day, everyone.|
|Lippy||Well, it appears we're all present. Wonderful. But... is that true, Leon? You've had little success as well?|
|Leon||Undercover operations like these take time. And the student body has been preoccupied with fair preparations.|
|Teepo||I'm sure the way you're being watched constantly isn't helping either.|
|Stahn||What?! What's Teepo talking about? Have you been made?! How? By who?|
|Leon||No. That's not what she means.|
|Elize||In his attempt to be inconspicuous, Leon is apparently refusing to talk to anyone in school.|
|Elize||But his strategy totally backfired. Now everyone in school thinks he's all cool and mysterious.|
|Teepo|| It's all anyone talks about!|
"Did you hear where Leon just went?"
"Did you hear what Leon did yesterday?"
|Teepo||He's got lots of admirers. The students are watching him everywhere he goes.|
|Stahn||Whoa, sounds like you're pretty popular, Leon! Good for you!|
|Leon||There's nothing good about it! All these prying fools...|
|Lippy|| I stand corrected, then. In your own way, you fit in every
bit as well here as Stahn does.
|Elize||My classmates have taken to calling Leon "the Black Rose."|
|Elize||Oh, and everyone calls Stahn "Superjock."|
|Stahn||Whoa, seriously? "Superjock," huh? I like that.|
|Leon||What do I have to do with roses? That's ridiculous.|
|Sara||Hee hee. Just look at you, Elize!|
|Elize||What? Why? Do I have something on my face...?|
|Sara||No! You look great.|
|Sara||You seemed so down the last time we talked. I was really worried about you.|
|Sara||It's nice to see some of the old sparkle back in your eyes.|
|Elize||Oh! Yeah, I guess I have been feeling better.|
|Elize||It's just such a relief having all you guys around.|
|Sara||That's wonderful. And you look adorable in your school uniform, by the way.|
|Sara||I'm almost a little jealous. I wonder how I'd look in one?|
|Leon||All right, stop. We're here to compare information. You can talk about clothes later.|
|Lippy||All right. Let's begin reviewing what we've learned...|
|Lippy||First, what have you able to discover about the school?|
|Leon||As Elize said, there does seem to be something strange about it.|
|Teepo||See? SEE? I TOLD YOU!|
|Elize||But we still haven't been able to find anything concrete about the Seven Wonders. It's all just rumors.|
|Stahn||The rumors are spreading fast, though. At this point, I doubt there's anyone in the school who hasn't heard them.|
|Elize||And the more the rumors spread, the more intense it's becoming.|
|Stahn||I know what she means. I can feel my skin crawling sometimes.|
|Stahn||It really feels like there's something here.|
|Lippy||So the ominous feelings she spoke of three weeks ago are growing stronger...|
|Stahn||Were you guys able to find anything, (user)?|
|Sara||Like you guys, we didn't have any big breakthroughs or anything.|
|Lippy||We spoke to an old man who lives near the school the other day. He told us something that was quite interesting.|
|Sara||Apparently the rumors about the "Seven Wonders" had already begun circulating when he was a child.|
|Teepo||They're really famous stories!|
|Lippy||I imagine the version he knows is the same one that's being told today.|
|Lippy||But we should confirm that's true. For example, can you tell me the "Ravenous Beast" story that you've heard at school?|
|Teepo||It's pretty much just as it sounds!|
|Elize||The school newspaper researched all Seven Wonders for their display at the fair this year.|
|Elize||How did it go? Apparently one day, all of the school's lunches and all of the stored ingredients disappeared.|
|Teepo||When they opened the pantry, not a crumb remained.|
|Stahn||Huh... So no one really knows if it was a beast or not. But there was something that went after all the food.|
|Stahn||Maybe we can lure out that something with our Flaming Octopus? What do you think?|
|Leon||I don't see why it would be any more effective as bait than the rest of the food being sold here.|
|Stahn||That's because you haven't tried it! It is leagues beyond the stuff that the other classes made!|
|Stahn||When we made the sample batch, our teacher was so moved he wept. Like, literally wept!|
|Elize||Stahn? What are you even talking about?|
|Student’s screaming||Our napples! Our napples!!!|
|Sara||What's going on?|
|Elize||Napples... They're a type of food...|
|Elize||Could it be the Ravenous Beast?|
|Stahn||It's coming from the row of food stalls! Let's go!|
|Elize||The scream was coming from this way!|
|Stahn|| Hey, what's wrong?|
Did something happen?
|Student||Man, you're not gonna believe it! Our candied napples, they're...|
|Muzét|| These are so delicious!|
I wonder if I could have one more?
|Student||Isn't she gorgeous? And all she wants is to eat our candied napples! She's like totally obsessed!|
|Student|| I'm so glad we decided to make candied napples for the fair!|
I was so excited I couldn't help but scream!
|Students||NAPPLES ARE THE BEEEESSSTTT!!!|
|Sara||That's what he was screaming about...?|
|Muzét||Hee hee. And I'm certainly glad I had a chance to meet these candied napples!|
|Muzét|| Oh my! If it isn't Elize!|
And... Oh! Give me a moment here...
|Lippy||A Great Spirit attending a school fair?! Whatever are you doing here, Lady Muzét?|
|Muzét|| (user)! And your little friends!|
Why, let's see... what am I doing here?
|Muzét||Oh, right! As a Great Spirit, I've come to study human society!|
|Muzét||There appeared to be some sort of festival here, so I came to experience this most human of rites for myself.|
|Lippy||Ah, I see. Why, I believe Lord Maxwell herself visited the beach earlier for a similar reason.|
|Lippy|| A most admirable pursuit.|
I'd have expected no less from you, Lady Muzét.
|Teepo||And here I thought you just wanted to snatch some candied napples... Silly me!|
|Elize||Let's let her slide on this one, Teepo.|
|Muzét||So what are you all doing here?|
|Muzét|| Huh! Well, if Elize is in trouble, you can count on me to help!|
Any friend of Milla's is a friend of mine!
|Elize||That's very nice of you, Muzét.|
|Teepo||If you're sure you can fit it into your schedule of screwing around while Milla's awa—|
|Lippy|| M-Master Teepo!|
You mustn't say such things to a Great Spirit!
|Stahn||That's right! As a Great Spirit, Muzét, can you sense anything about this school? Anything unusual?|
|Muzét||Hmm. It does seem a little... noisy... But I don't sense anything particularly dangerous.|
|Stahn||Huh... I was hoping you might be able to, you know, point us in the right direction.|
|Muzét||Well... For some reason, strange waves of danger seem to be emanating from that thing you're holding...|
|Muzét||What is that? Is it really even food?|
|Stahn||Witness the power of a Great Spirit! She respects the Flaming Octopus!|
|Stahn|| I worried that our cooking technique might be too dangerous to unleash on this world...|
I may have been right.
|Lippy||What exactly is it that Master Stahn and his classmates have managed to create here...?|
|Student||Um, excuse me?|
Oh! You're the student that was selling the candied napples.
|Student||Yes! And we're very grateful for your business.|
|Muzét|| It was my pleasure.|
They were delicious.
|Student||But, um... the thing is... you haven't paid for them yet...|
|Teepo||Muzét! Are you stealing food again?|
|Muzét||Yes, but... they looked so good!|
|Elize||Well, someone has to pay for them. I guess it'll be me.|
|Teepo||You better pay us back for this, Muzét!|
|Elize||How many do we owe you for?|
|Student||67 candied napples.|
|Elize||She ate that many?!|
|Stahn||Wow. That is impressive...!|
|Leon||Do not interpret that as a challenge.|
|Teepo|| You're such a glutton!|
Do spirits even need to eat?!
|Muzét||Wait, did I really eat that many? I'd say I ate maybe 20, at the most.|
|Student|| Are you sure? That's odd...|
We subtracted how many were left from how many had been there...
|Sara||Wait a minute...|
|Stahn||Could it be?!|
|Stahn||The Ravenous Beast!|
|Leon||Are you suggesting the Seven Wonders are occurring here at the school fair?|
|Sara||It's just like the story! The food disappeared without anyone noticing!|
|Muzét|| The missing candied napples...|
Wasn't it that other boy who ate them?
|Sara||What other boy? Who do you mean?|
|Muzét||He went that way. I'm sure of it.|
|Muzét||Let's follow him!|
|Elize||That path leads back to the school...|
|Lippy||Everyone, follow Muzét!|
|Sara||Well, we checked out the back path...|
|Muzét||We did. And there he is!|
Who are you talking about?
|Elize||There's nobody here, Muzét.|
|Muzét|| Hmm? You can't see them?|
So they're that kind of kid...
|Leon|| "That kind of kid"...?|
Try to communicate coherently!
|Muzét|| You just need to focus!|
They're right there!
|Muzét||If you believe that they're there, you'll see them. Concentrate on it.|
|Sara||If we believe...|
|????||*pant* I did it! 30 napples! I ate them right under their noses!|
|????|| Whoa! That's awesome!|
That'll give 'em something to talk about. All right, now it's my turn!
|Lippy|| What are they...?|
|Muzét|| They're not monsters.|
They're not spirits either, although they're clearly spiritual beings.
|Muzét||They seem to be quite ancient. That one was eating napples just a short distance away from me.|
|Muzét||I guess humans can't usually see them.|
|Muzét||When incorporeal beings spend a long time somewhere, they can absorb some of the region's mana, and acquire special properties.|
|Muzét||I hadn't noticed their unique attributes earlier, but...|
|????||Huh? Who the heck are you?!|
|Sara||Look! They've noticed us!|
|????|| Whoa! We're getting there!|
It's really happening!
|????||All right! It won't be long now.|
|Elize|| What's "really happening"?|
"It won't be long" until what?
|Stahn||I don't know what you guys are talking about, but all the strange stuff that's been happening at the school—that was your doing?|
|Elize|| The missing lunches and stored food...|
The stolen candied napples...
|Seven Wonders||That was all me! The napples were my favorite. That there is why they call me the Ravenous Beast!|
|Seven Wonders||I'm the one who looks like a shining statue at night!|
|Seven Wonders||When you hear music in an empty classroom, that's my handiwork!|
|Sara|| So the Seven Wonders...|
|Leon||What do you hope to achieve with your little pranks? Ah, I don't even care. Just stop.|
|Leon||Your little games are scaring the students.|
|Seven Wonders|| That's the whole point!|
What else would be [sic] doing?
|Stahn||Look, it's not just freaking people out—it's causing serious incidents! Real problems that need to stop!|
|Seven Wonders||If we want to "freak people out," there have to be some real victims. That can't be helped.|
|Seven Wonders||We may have accomplished a lot, but our long-standing goal has yet to come to fruition.|
|Seven Wonders||Until that day comes, we've no choice but to devote ourselves wholly to spreading unease as the Seven Wonders!|
|Teepo||Why do you have to be this way! Just stop! Stop, or I'll get angry!|
|Seven Wonders||We're not gonna stop, and we're not gonna let you stop us, either!|
|Seven Wonders||If you try, we'll make you sorry!|
|Muzét||Tut-tut. Such nasty little children! It looks like auntie Muzét needs to teach you how to behave.|
|Lippy||L-Lady Muzét! There's no need to escalate this situation!|
|Seven Wonders||Heh heh. You seem pretty sure of yourself!|
|Seven Wonders||Maybe you wouldn't be if you knew who you were dealing with!|
|Seven Wonders||I'm Ravenous Beast, the Seventh Wonder. I'll show you what I can do with these fangs!|
|Seven Wonders||[Chomp chomp chomp]|
|Stahn||Whoa! He just shredded that food. That's incredible...|
|Shimmering Statue|| I'm #6, the Shimmering Statue!|
A statue of a school president from generations past.
This is what I do!
|Shimmering Statue||[The statue shimmers brightly.]|
|Stahn||Geez, look at that statue sparkle! That's really pretty.|
|Wandering Musician||I'm Wonder #5, the Wandering Musician! My little friend here can get anyone's heart racing. Wanna hear me play?|
|Wandering Musician||[Rattle rattle rattle]|
|Stahn|| Whoa, feel the beat!|
That gets my blood bumping!
|Sara||(Maracas? Is that really making music...?)|
|Seven Wonders|| [Chomp!]|
Let's do this!
|Sara||Let's... do what, exactly?|
|Seven Wonders|| [Chomp!]|
They're attacking us...?!
|Shimmering Statue||Number 7? Are you okay?!|
|Wandering Musician|| Damn it!|
I can't believe they were able to break through our triangle formation!
|Leon||That was supposed to be a triangle formation? You were just running in circles while eating, shimmering, and waving maracas.|
|Ravenous Beast||But that's our most psychologically devastating attack!|
|Shimmering Statue||Haven't we afflicted you with a creeping sense of unease?|
|Wandering Musician||Aren't you feeling moderate discomfort?|
|Elize|| I mean, it was unusual, I suppose.|
I was... perplexed?
|Ravenous Beast||We're not going to be able to beat them with unease and discomfort alone!|
|Stahn||To be fair, I was getting worried! I very nearly dropped my Flaming Octopus on the ground!|
|Stahn||That would have been big trouble! We dropped a piece once, and the explosion blew Lutz clean out of the classroom and all the way down the hall—|
|Leon||Shut up. Nobody wants to hear your insane takoyaki stories.|
|Teepo||Actually, I've kinda grown to like 'em!|
|Ravenous Beast||Mental damage isn't gonna be enough. We need to physically harm them!|
|Shimmering Statue||They may be able to stop the three of us...|
|Wandering Musician||But the Fourth Wonder is in the schoolyard—he'll fight them for us! He knows how to get physical!|
|Teepo|| Hey! They're getting away!|
|Muzét||They mentioned the schoolyard. We should follow them there.|
|Stahn|| Right. But I still don't get it.|
Why are these guys playing so many pranks on the students?
|Lippy||They've mentioned a desire to instill a sense of unease in the student body.|
|Lippy||But if terrorism was their goal, it seems they could have done far worse things than they've been doing.|
|Stahn||Yeah, we're missing something here.|
|Leon||There's no sense in trying to understand the logic of madmen. Now hurry after them!|
|Sara|| All right, Leon!|
We're right behind you!
|Elize||Well, this is the schoolyard...|
|Muzét||Where'd those kids go?|
|Lippy|| I've only just sensed it!|
A dimensional rift has been established around this entire schoolyard!
|????|| Heh heh heh.|
Now you're inside my ring.
Take a good look around!
|Lippy||What? You're the one who drew this white magical ring? But why...?!|
|Stahn||You're one of the Seven Wonders!|
|White Ring Artist|| Number four, to be exact!|
The White Ring Artist, if you please.
|White Ring Artist||The strange and ominous pattern that has been drawn around the schoolyard— that's my doing!|
What is that kid riding on?
|Lippy||That's a special tool for drawing quicklime lines on the ground.|
|White Ring Artist||It's how I draw my magic rings as quickly and efficiently as possible!|
|Lippy||Not exactly standard practice for this sort of thing...|
|White Ring Artist||My magic ring has turned this schoolyard into a dimensional rift!|
|Ravenous Beast||That's why he's the Fourth Wonder!|
|Shimmering Statue||He's used his rifts to trap students on the way home from school, scaring them and making them miss curfew!|
|Wandering Musician||And look how useful it is in a fight! Number Four's the best!|
|Lippy||Making students miss their curfews...? That is certainly a modest way to use such an impressive power...|
|White Ring Artist||Ha ha ha! No one can enter or leave the rift! You're trapped here until it expires. But don't worry— we'll play with you till then.|
|Elize||Why are you doing this?|
|White Ring Artist||To instill unease! To advance our goal! But I'll tell you no more—if you knew, you'd only try to stop us.|
|Leon|| If this one won't talk either, then our course is clear.|
Cut them down and end this here.
|White Ring Artist|| Easier said than done.|
You have me to contend with now—and the Third Wonder too!
|Stahn||Another one of these guys...?|
|Ghost Musician|| Ha ha ha!|
I am the Third Wonder, the Ghost Musician!
|Ghost Musician|| Care to hear the tune I play?|
Come, my puppets!
|A group of students||Urrrrgggghhh...|
|Sara||Are those students from this school?!|
|Sara||Do you know these kids, Elize?|
|Elize||Yes... I encountered them when I was investigating by myself...|
|Teepo||They're all the kids who got dizzy and fainted after seeing the weird phenomena!|
|Ghost Musician||Indeed they are! The dizziness weakens their psyches, allowing my melody to take root!|
|Ghost Musician||And now, at the school fair, they awaken anew! Come! Rise, my puppets!|
|Lippy||What have you done to them?!|
|Sara||I don't like that look in their eyes... Are they being possessed by a seed?!|
|Student A||Bro, come at meeeee!|
|Student B||We're gonna kick your buuuuutts!|
|Student C||Get outta heeeeeere!|
|Lippy||N-no...they've just become students exhibiting poor behavior!|
|Ghost Musician||Witness my gift! I amplify their natural hostility towards school and society, turning decent kids into delinquents!|
|Lippy||Why would you do such a thing?|
|Ghost Musician||When the male students abruptly become disobedient, it shatters public order, and fills the student body with unease!|
|Ghost Musician||"Why would they do such a thing?" "They used to be such good kids!" Such is the discomfort I sow!|
|Lippy||Why are you trying to so modestly destabilize this school?|
|Ghost Musician||We can't afford to scare everyone away. We just want to make them uneasy... We're threading a delicate needle here!|
|Lippy||Hmmm. I'm not sure that we're really getting anywhere with these questions...|
|Ghost Musician||Normally, the hostility of these students is focused at their school— breaking windows and such. But what if I redirect that anger towards YOU?!|
Bring it ooooooonn!
|Sara||The students are coming right at us!|
|Muzét||So long as we're trapped in this rift, escape does not appear to be an option.|
|Stahn||What are we going to do?!|
|Leon||Defeating the one that controls them appears to be the quickest solution.|
|Lippy||Try not to engage the students, Great Savior! Focus your attacks on the Seven Wonders!|
|Elize||We've stopped the musician!|
|Leon|| One down, one to go.|
Do it, Stahn!
|White Ring Artist||Arrrrggghhh!!!|
|Teepo||The rift has disappeared!|
|Ravenous Beast||They've beaten the Third Wonder?! This can't be happening...!|
|Shimmering Statue||This is bad. We're gonna need to tell the First and Second Wonders...|
|Wandering Musician|| Their powers are unbeatable!|
We can still turn this around!
|Sara|| Unbeatable powers...?|
What could that mean?
|Leon||We can worry about that later.|
|Leon||Let's hang back for now and let them lead us to the remaining Wonders.|
|Teepo||Always the schemer, Leon!|
|Lippy|| Everyone, a moment, please!|
The students we've freed...
There's something not right.
|Sara|| That look in their eyes...|
Are they still being controlled?!
|Lippy||I fear I've miscalculated terribly! Defeating their controller hasn't freed them, it's only enraged them!|
|Stahn||Aw, geez... What do we do now?!|
|Student A|| Rrraaaaaawwwrrr!!!|
I'm the strongest kid in this school!
|Student B||No, I am!|
|Student C||I could take you both!|
|Student D|| You wanna piece of me?!|
Come and get it!
|Student E||Bring it on, then!|
|Lippy||Dear me... This is most unseemly!|
|Ravenous Beast||Ooh! Looks like the ruffian kids are starting to turn against each other!|
|Shimmering Statue||I guess they're picking fights to show how tough they are?|
|Wandering Musician||Wow, they're still hostile even with the Third Wonder down. He really did a number of them! And now they'll make the perfect distraction!|
|Seven Wonders||Let's hurry back to the First Wonder!|
|Stahn||Hey, cut it out! Aww, dang it— now we got a brawl on our hands! What are we gonna do?|
|Lippy||From the way the Wonder powers seem to work, I'd expect the effects to dissipate if they lose consciousness...|
|Leon|| Then let's let them fight.|
Once they knock each other out, the problem will solve itself.
|Stahn||You really think so...?|
|Leon||Let's just stay out of their way and keep pursuing the Wonders.|
|Sara|| I dunno...|
I'm a little worried about them.
|Elize||The fight's getting really rough!|
|Student B||Heeeeeeyaaaaaahhh!!! Heaven-fall Chop!|
|Student C|| You son of a...|
Youthful Purity Kick!!!
|Stahn|| I'm sorry.|
I can't just walk away from this!
|Leon||Stahn? What are you—|
|Stahn||EVERYBODY LISTEN TO MEEEEEE! THIS IS YOUR SUPERJOCK SPEAKING!|
|Stahn||You know why they call me that! So who's the strongest kid here? That'd be the one who can take ME down!|
|Student C|| You think you're so tough?|
You think I can't take you?
|Student D|| The Superjock himself...!|
I'm gonna put you in the GROUND!
|Leon|| What the hell...!|
I said to ignore them!
|Stahn||If we just let them fight, who knows how bad it would get? They could get seriously hurt!|
|Stahn|| Let me handle this mess——|
I'll aim at the pressure points for knockout. Hope that will minimise the damage.
|Stahn|| You guys go on ahead.|
I'll catch up.
|Elize|| There's too many of them!|
Even for you!
|Teepo||But the remaining Seven Wonders may be the greater danger... We need to find them quickly!|
|Leon|| That moron...|
He never considers the consequences!
|Muzét||Go and help your friend, Leon.|
|Muzét||We can handle the Seven Wonders.|
|Leon||Do you think you've read my mind?|
|Leon||Well you're wrong! A fool he may be, but that man is a soldier of Karon. I can't squander a military resource!|
|Teepo||You're such a good friend, Leon!|
|Elize||I'm honestly kind of moved!|
|Student A||Urggh... Ooof...|
|Stahn|| Urggghh... Damn it...|
Beating these guys without hurting them is harder than I thought it'd be...
|Stahn|| Aw, crap!|
I didn't see that one...
|Leon||Pathetic. If you hope to win, you'd best all come at me at once.|
|Leon|| Did you think you could incapacitate this many students so easily?|
You need to learn your limitations.
|Stahn|| Thanks, Leon.|
But are you sure you're up for this? You can't draw your sword against kids!
|Leon|| You think I don't know that?|
Let's just finish this already.
|Stahn||Thanks. I appreciate it.|
|Leon||I'll take the ones to the right.|
|Stahn||Sure. I got the group on the left.|
|Teepo||There! They ran into that classroom!|
|Sara||They said they were going to the First Wonder... That's gotta be their leader...|
|Teepo||If we take out the leader, the school will be saved!|
|Sara|| I guess, but... I dunno.|
Are these kids really that much of a danger?
|Elize||I just wish we knew what they wanted! All their talk about making people uneasy...|
|Teepo||They're causing real problems!|
|Muzét||If their behavior is bringing harm to mankind, we need to make them stop. But I'm sure they have their reasons.|
|Muzét||It wouldn't hurt to hear them out.|
|Sara||Yeah, Muzét. I think you're right.|
|Muzét||Then let's hear what they have to say.|
|[Elize pulls the door open.]|
|Teepo|| All right, Wonder Boss!|
Come out and talk!
|Sara||Why is this classroom so dark? It's still daytime!|
|[The door slams shut.]|
I left the door open...
|Lippy||It's sealed shut!|
|Muzét||Another Wonder. Hello.|
|Classroom of Ruin||Ha ha ha! Feel the chilling unease brought by me, the Classroom of Ruin! Mine is the power to darken classrooms, and hold doors closed!|
|Lippy||More mild unease? I must admit that I was bracing myself for something a little more... exotic.|
|Teepo||Compared to dimensional rifts and mind control, that's pretty lame!|
|Classroom of Ruin||It is the most basic and fundamental of fears. Do not underestimate it!|
|Lippy||I guess that actually makes a certain amount of sense.|
|Ravenous Beast||See! That's what makes the Second Wonder special!|
|Seven Wonders?||A modest power, perhaps, but it can combine with my own to make a significant impact!|
|Shimmering Statue||Show 'em, number 1!|
|Lippy||You're the leader of the Seven Wonders, I presume?|
|Demon's Cradle|| I am indeed the First Wonder...|
None other than...
the Demon's Cradle!
|Demon's Cradle||You may have managed to foil my fellow Wonders, but your meddling ends here.|
|Ravenous Beast||All right, we've come this far. There's only one thing left to do!|
|Shimmering Statue||We'll cheer you on!|
|Seven Wonders|| Hoo-ray, hoo-ray|
Room of Ru-in!
|Seven Wonders|| You can beat them|
You're a shoo-in!
|Seven Wonders|| Hoo-ray, hoo-ray|
|Seven Wonders|| Your heart is mighty|
Your fists are fa-tal!
|Sara|| Guys, I don't like this.|
They're peforming cheers—
this is not villain behavior!
|Demon's Cradle|| Thanks guys! I feel the love!|
Let's do this, Number 2!
|Classroom of Ruin||On it!|
|Demon's Cradle||Together we will shake this school to its foundations! Tremble at the power of our dual Mystic Arte!|
|Elize||What the heck...!|
|[Desks and chairs fly into the air.]|
|Lippy||All the furniture's flying around!|
|Muzét||This one appears to have telekinetic abilities.|
|Demon's Cradle||I can shake up any and all classroom objects at will! That's why they call me... the Demon's Cradle!|
|Demon's Cradle||Trapped in a classroom with moving desks and chairs! Truly, that is the essence of fear and unease!|
|[A disk slides across the floor.]|
|[A chair flies through the air.]|
|Sara|| Watch out!|
Is this happening through the school?!
|Shriek from far away|| Bwaaahhh!|
What the hell is going on?!
All the chairs are flying around!
|Shriek from far away||What the— my desk fell over! Waaah! They're all falling over!|
|Shriek from far away||Kyaaahhh! The anatomical models are moving! They're coming at me! Help me! Somebody help me!|
|Lippy||The entire school appears to be in a state of chaos!|
|Demon's Cradle||Now you see the true might of the Seven Wonders! Do not forget our names in your fear and unease!|
|Elize|| If we don't stop them,|
the school fair will be ruined!
|Sara||Right! First we stop the mystic arte, then we get to the bottom of why the heck they're doing this!|
|Classroom of Ruin||*Gulp* Oh no...|
|Seven Wonders||They beat Classroom and Cradle!|
|Demon's Cradle|| It's all over...|
We're done for...
|Sara||The desks and chairs have stopped.|
|Elize||The doors are no longer sealed!|
|Sara||So all the students who were trapped in other classrooms are free to go?|
|Stahn||Are you guys all right?|
|Lippy|| Master Stahn! Master Leon!|
I am most relieved to see you unharmed.
|Stahn||Yeah, all the ruffians have been subdued. I couldn't have done it without Leon...|
|Stahn||And my Flaming Octopus!|
|Leon||It was a spectacle I'd sooner forget.|
|Sara||I'm sorry, but how exactly was the Flaming Octopus involved...?|
|Lippy||That takoyaki seems to be as powerful and functional a magical artifact as my own divine smartphon...|
|Muzét||We've beaten the Seven Wonders. No longer shall the students here have to endure a mild sense of unease.|
|Sara||Yeah, so that's... good, I guess? This just doesn't feel like much of a victory...|
|Shimmering Statue||Dark times are upon us again!|
|Wandering Musician||*Sniff* It's not fair!|
|Sara||Is anyone else getting the sense that... we're the bad guys here?|
|Elize||But... we were just trying to protect the school! Why were these kids causing so much mischief?|
|Muzét||I think it's time we figured that out.|
|Muzét|| Have you kids calmed down?|
Are you ready to talk?
|Classroom of Ruin|| *sniff*|
We told you already...
|Muzét||Yes, yes, you just wanted to make the students uneasy. But why?|
|Teepo|| What is going on here?|
When did Muzét become so reasonable?!
|Seven Wonders||We are... spiritual beings who have lived here since ancient times.|
|Seven Wonders||We were born from the mana in this region, so we can't ever leave here.|
|Seven Wonders||We used to coexist happily with the people here.|
|Seven Wonders||They would worship us, and that would give us energy. As long as they thought we were real, we were.|
|Lippy||Ah, that makes perfect sense. You're a type of locale spirit.|
|Sara||So that's why Muzét said you'd see them if you believe they're there.|
|Seven Wonders||We lived here for a long, long time. And then one day...|
|Seven Wonders||The people started to construct a building, and kids started assembling here...|
|Seven Wonders||What you call a "school."|
|Seven Wonders||We were scared and confused, but we're a part of the land here.|
|Seven Wonders||So we lived among the students, and a few of them were able to perceive us— that's how the rumors started.|
|Seven Wonders||They'd say they could feel a "weird presence." They started talking about the "Seven Wonders."|
|Seven Wonders||It created a whole new way for us to live!|
|Seven Wonders||Whenever we did weird things, the students would talk about us, and we'd gain energy from that.|
|Seven Wonders||The weird phenomena seemed to make school more interesting for the students, so everyone was happy.|
|Seven Wonders||Even if they weren't worshipping us, they believed we were there, and that was enough to keep us real.|
|Seven Wonders||We stopped minding being called the Seven Wonders, and started to embrace it.|
|Seven Wonders||But then, one day...|
|The principal of the school sealed us away!|
|Seven Wonders||Very few people are able to see spirits. And the ones who can't tend to view us with suspicion.|
|Seven Wonders||The rumors had spread beyond the school, and even though we hadn't hurt anyone, new students were afraid to enroll here.|
|Seven Wonders||The principal at that time was worried about the school's reputation, so she hired a sorcerer to seal us away.|
|Seven Wonders||Students came and went, and each new class believed in us less and less.|
|Seven Wonders||We spent a long time trapped in that dark void.|
|Seven Wonders||But finally, we had an opportunity! Students started researching the old Seven Wonders stories as part of a presentation for the school fair.|
|Seven Wonders||As the students learned about us, and talked about us, they started to believe in us, at least a little...|
|Elize||Oh! That was the Journalism Club!|
|Seven Wonders||And because of that, we were able to regain a little bit of our strength.|
|Seven Wonders||It was enough to manifest ourselves again, and we had to take advantage of the opportunity!|
|Seven Wonders||So bit by bit, we started doing weird tricks again. And the more the rumors spread, the stronger we became!|
|Seven Wonders||Tricks that made the students uneasy tended to have the biggest impact, so we focused on those.|
|Seven Wonders||The sense of unease and fear would linger in their hearts, producing energy for longer periods of time.|
|Seven Wonders||After being sealed away and nearly forgotten, we almost disappeared entirely!|
|Seven Wonders||So we figured that if we could do something at a big event with lots of people, like the student fair— it would really get people talking.|
|Seven Wonders||And then we might have enough energy to free ourselves! We figured it might be our last chance to come back!|
|Seven Wonders||That was our plan. Everything we'd done was building up to this.|
|Sara||That... explains a lot.|
|Seven Wonders||This battle was about breaking our seal and regaining our freedom...|
|Sara||So this was your home. You were here long before the school even existed...|
|Lippy||Since they're bound to the earth here. They need to find a way to coexist with the people at the school...|
|Seven Wonders||We wanted too, but... Maybe there's just no place for locale spirits here anymore.|
|Sara||You poor creatures...|
|Seven Wonders||And now we will disappear for good. I suppose that is our punishment for the unease we've inflicted on the students of this school...|
|Sara||Guys, I... I think...|
|Lippy|| Indeed, Lady Sara.|
I'm certain we all feel the same way.
|Sara||We came here thinking the students were in danger, but... they weren't. We can't ignore the ones who really are in danger.|
|Stahn|| Yeah, I mean...|
They did some kinda bad stuff, but...
|Stahn||I think they're the ones who need our help now!|
|Sara||But what can we do?|
I think I have a pretty good idea.
|Elize||I mean, I'm not sure it would work, but what if we did this...|
|—Day Two of the School Fair—|
|Student B||Hey, did you see the Journalism Club booth? All the stuff about the Seven Wonders changed completely overnight!|
|Student A|| I saw it! It totally blew my mind!|
I can't believe someone finally figured out what was really going on!
|Student B|| I know, right?|
I was always kinda scared of the Seven Wonders. Now I'm not so sure.
|Student A||So the one called the Spring Musician was just trying to play uplifting music when a student seemed down...|
|Student B||And the one called the Shimmering Path lights up the road when students are coming home after dark!|
|Student A||And they're really called the Seven Legends! They're just trying to look after the students here!|
|Elize||If we can get people to spread positive rumors instead, it'll keep bringing energy to the spirits, and the students won't have anything to fear anymore!|
|Teepo|| That's a perfect plan, Elize!|
You're so smart!
|Muzét||I think everything's going to be okay for you.|
|Divine Artiste||It never occurred to us that we could survive this way...|
|Brave Honcho||Not only do we get to live on, but we get a chance to atone for all the harm we've caused...|
|Epicurean Beast||We'll be able to feel the sunlight once more!|
|Sunlit Classroom||Thank you so much!|
|Holy Cradle||From now on, we Seven Wonders will proudly become the Seven Legends! And we'll try to make sure the rumors we inspire are always happy ones!|
|Sara||Good luck, guys!|
|Leon||And now that this matter is resolved, we can finally return to Karon.|
|Stahn|| Yeah, I guess...|
But I'm kinda gonna miss this.
|Stahn||Going to school here was... kinda fun. And I finally got used to wearing the uniform!|
|Stahn||Don't you feel the same way, Leon?|
|Leon|| You're out of your mind.|
I never want to think of this wretched experience again.
|Leon|| That said, I guess...|
It could have been worse.
|Elize|| Thank you so much, guys.|
Here, we made you something.
|Muzét|| Ooh! Candied napples!|
And candied poranges too!
|Elize||My class was making them, too. They're a special recipe that uses herbs.|
|Teepo||You can taste the power of those herbs in every bite!|
|Sara|| Thanks Elize!|
These will be just the thing when we need a boost on our adventures.
|Stahn|| Aw, geez, that's right.|
I gotta get you something too!
|Stahn||I begged you to help with this, and you guys came through big time!|
|Stahn|| I know—Flaming Octopus|
on the house!
|Stahn|| Yep, you deserve it!|
I'm gonna go whip up a batch, so you wait right here, okay?
|Leon||What? No! I failed to stop you the first time, but I will not allow you to make more of something so dangerous! Stahn! STAHN!|
|Lippy||I don't know that I've ever seen Master Leon in such a panic before.|
|Sara||What is the deal with that takoyaki?!|
|And so the dreaded Seven Wonders...|
|...became the beloved Seven Legends.|
|But a new "wonder" had risen...|
|...and few would ever learn the truth about the Flaming Octopus...|
