Episode 21: D X
[Di- E-kusu Bi-!!]
"I... I've arrived!", shouts Shun, "This Temple...?
I should be at the Paradise of Hope. But where is the enemy who governs
Again, Shun is wearing his ultimate battle gear! He
[Kibou no Shinraku]
Shun turns to look behind him, "MUH!" He sees a
Goddess wearing a Kamui!
"You... You are the Olympus God who governs this
"Yes. I am the Moon Goddess, Artemis! This Paradise
of Hope that I govern, only those who have lived their lives never
giving up on themselves, always trusting in God for the future, and
after passing the Purging of Purgatory, gaining Divine Grace can enter..."
Artemis looks carefully at Shun's body. Shun is
likened to be naked. His Cloth does not exist.
"I was about to praise you, Andromeda, for
being able to come here with that wounded body but already, you can't fight
anymore... If it wasn't Hades's Brain that got destroyed you would be dead
"Brain...? You talking about the Brain of the Soul,
the Arayashiki of Hades?"
"Yes... When Hades possessed you, his soul entered
your body and his Brain suppressed yours."
"You mean that time when Athena used her blood to
exorcise the spirit of the Underworld King, she actually invoked my
Brain to push Hades out!"
"Yes... Hades always used such techniques to fight
with Athena. The Specters are the same. The 108 Evil Stars are actually
"Unlike Sion, the Warriors of Hades are not dead,
they are born on the Earth like you Saints but they have inside themselves
2 Brains and 1 Heart, one of the Brain is actually dormant. When the Evil
Stars enter those humans, the Brain of the Specter
awakes and suppresses the one that was active before..."
It finally occurs to Shun how Seiya survived the
fight with Hades, "After the fight with the Underworld King, Seiya looked
like he was dead but in fact, it was only his Brain that was sealed, but
his Heart of the Soul was still functioning..."
"Yes... Now you understand Shun... You of all the
Saints hate fighting so, don't make me destroy your Heart too..."
"NO! EVEN IF MY BODY AND SOUL IS DESTROYED, I WILL
FIGHT! COME! ARTEMIS!!"
"INTERESTING...", says the Goddess of the Moon coldly,
and she raises her right hand, concentrating a Cosmo Blast
there, "THEN DIE JUST LIKE YOU SAID!!"
The blast of Cosmo is released but right then, Artemis's
hand is hit by something! The Cosmo blast does not hit its target! The
Olympus God looks at the thing that interfered with her hand!
"WH... WHAT IS THIS CHAIN!?", shouts Artemis but
right when she was studying the Circle Chain, a weird sound can
[NA... NANDA KONO CHE-N WA!?]
[En no Kusari]
be heard and Shun is surrounded by flames!
"DON'T FORGET! MY CLOTH RECIEVED THE BLOOD OF ATHENA...
THE BLOOD OF A GODDESS!!"
[MEGAMI NO CHI!!]
"THAT IS ANDROMEDA'S GOD CLOTH!!"
[ARE WA ANDOROMEDA NO SHIN SEI
"LET'S GO, ARTEMIS!! NEBULA CHAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
[IKUZO ARUTEMISU!! NEBYURA CHE------------N!!]
The Square Chain flies toward Artemis and in an
instant, her headpiece is blown away, falling to the grass!!
[Kaku no Kusari]
"Impossible!!", shouts the shocked Artemis, "Just
wearing his God Cloth, his power has raised to such a level!"
Shun retracts his chain ready for the next attack.
"As expected, we can't underestimate Athena's Saints..."
"WHAT!?", shouts the shocked Shun! He is not shouting
for the burning Cosmo of Artemis, nor is he shouting for the Cosmo that
seems to cover all of Heaven! Shun is shouting because he can see all around
him in this Paradise of Hope, darkness is starting to blanket the sky!!
The once shining sky is no more and Shun can see
stars and space above! But what's more important is in the center, right
above Artemis, there is a Moon! A RED MOON!! Artemis shouts, "DARK
[DA-KU MU-N HEBUN-------------!!]
"UWAHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!", screams Shun as the
Red Light from the Dark Moon comes to hit him! The crimson light blows
Shun's body cracking his God Cloth and blood sprays from his body! Shun
falls to the grass and stops breathing!
Artemis walks pass Shun's dead body and climbs the
steps of her Temple. She was about to enter the temple when the Andromeda
Chains on the ground start to move by themselves!!
"WHAT!?", shouts the Olympus God! The chains wiggle
to form 3 letters:
D X V
"D X V!?",
wonders Artemis, "What does that mean!?"
[Di- E-kusu Bi-!?]
"WHAT IS THIS!!" comes a voice! Shun has actually
"IMPOSSIBLE!!", shouts Artemis, "HOW CAN YOU BE
"My chains protected me! And they gave me a shock
to wake me up again! But what is this!!"
Studying the chains, Shun wonders, "My chains are
telling us a crisis is coming! TO US ALL!!"
"A crisis?", wonders the Olympus Goddess, suddenly
it occurs to Artemis!
"CAN IT BE!! CAN IT BE!! ...Finally, I understand
that weird feeling I had when the 12 Kamui came together! This can only
The chains starts to wiggle and the letters disappear
as the chains return to Shun! Artemis finally calms down and says, "Andromeda...
I'm not sure but either way I don't believe it!"
"For that to happen it is too soon..."
Shun is silent. He just doesn't understand.
"Either way... Rather that is true or not, it's
not important, what matters is, will the Earth be saved...?"
"AH!?", reacts Shun, "THEN YOU WILL HELP US STOP
"No!", shakes the head of the Moon Goddess, "I didn't
say that... But I will tell you a way to save the Earth... But it requires..."
End of Episode 21.
Episode 22: The Ultimate Sacrifice!!
[Saikou no Gisei!!]
"It requires your death..." continues Artemis.
"FULL MOON MYSTERY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
"My death...?", questions Shun.
"Before this War started, I spoke with Zeus... He
told me if there was One who was pure enough that was willing to die for
[Kiyoraka na Hito]
the Earth. He will stop this war and he will return the Comet to its
"One? You mean someone like me!"
"Yes. Andromeda. I know you always hated to fight.
I know you want all the hostilities to stop. So, let you be the vessel
for the Symbol of Peace. Come... Andromeda..."
[Heiwa no Shouchou]
Suddenly behind Artemis, an image starts to rise,
it is a Round Moon shining a blue light, reflecting the light of the sun!
[FU-RU MU-N MISUTERI----------------!!]
Bathed in that awesome blue light, Shun's taken
away from the Paradise of Hope and he's returned to the Earth. But the
sight of the Land shocks Shun. Everything is frozen! All life is trapped
in ice! Nothing is living!
"Andromeda..." comes a voice from the sky, "You
don't want this to continue, do you...? Protect the Earth with your death!
Die for this Earth!! PLEASE SHUN!!!!"
Right then, from the dark sky, a giant orb of Cosmo
is coming, heading for Shun! Shun can dodge it but he doesn't. He lets
it come, "If my death can save the Earth, I'm glad to give it... Brother,
[Ni San Wakatte kure]
The orb hits Shun and his body and soul is both
destroyed totally. Immediately, the ice starts to melt. Grass is growing
again. Flowers are blooming again. All kinds of life is alive again...
"Thank you Andromeda...", smiles the Goddess of the
Moon. She starts to walk away from her Paradise and starts to head for Zeus Temple
to report what just happened.
"KYAHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!" screams Artemis who just got
hit by the Square Chain traveling in a zigzag motion!
Artemis is let fly, crashing to the grass! She looks
up and sees Shun appear back in her Paradise, "ANDROMEDA!!"
"This kind of Skill won't work on me anymore!",
"Why, Andromeda!? Why won't you die? I didn't lie
to you, if you were willing to sacrifice yourself for the Earth, everything
"I can't do that anymore! Yes... Once in the Hades
War, I was willing to sacrifice myself so Hades could be destroyed, so
I asked my Big Brother to kill me... But, now I know... THAT WAS WRONG!!"
"How could I be so cruel to ask my Brother to take
my life! It was inconsiderate of me and unbecoming for a Saint! Artemis!
I'll tell you now!
"IF I AM TO SACRIFICE MYSELF, IT IS TO DIE WHILE
FIGHTING ZEUS! THAT IS THE REAL SACRIFICE! THAT IS THE ULTIMATE SACRIFICE
I CAN MAKE FOR THE EARTH!!
Again, the Square Chain flies in a zigzag motion
towards Artemis but suddenly, a blinding yellow light shines!
"WHAT!?", shouts Shun as the yellow light destroys
the Square Chain completely! Artemis stands back up and finally Shun can
identify the source of the yellow light! IT IS FROM A BOW!!
"AH!", reacts Shun, the Bow shines again! But this time,
million lines of yellow light is released!
shouts Shun and his Circle Chain starts surrounding his body to protect
him! But in
an instant, his Circle Chain is shattered and the lights bombard his
"UAHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!", this time it is Shun's
turn to crash on the grass!
"Andromeda...", says Artemis coldly, holding a bow
with her left hand, "If it allows, I don't want to use this Bow but..."
Suddenly Artemis realizes there is movement in the
air around her, "This Air Current!!"
[Kono kiryuu wa!!]
"NE... NEBULA STREAM....",
says Shun though filled with pain, he stands back up, using his Cosmo to
[NE... NEBYURA SUTORI-MU...]
skill, "I, too, don't want to use this!! Artemis! If you come with
me to stop Zeus, I'll..."
"Don't get cocky just yet. I'm not going to rebel
against Zeus if that's what you're asking me! Zeus is a very tender God,
for him to take this action, there must a big reason...
"Yes. It's a shame that all life on Earth will be
destroyed but I can see a New Heaven and a New Earth will come because
of Zeus's actions. And, even if the DXV is true, I'm sure we would be stronger
and more united if all the evil on the Earth is flushed out!"
Suddenly from Artemis's right hand, an Arrow appears!
"If D. M. H.
is a Cosmo attack, and if F. M.
M. is a mental attack, this Arrow attack I am about
[Fu-ru Mu-n Misuteri]
to launch is a combination of those two attacks! I'm sure you will die when this arrow hits your body but can you
defeat me before that?"
"Like I said, I'm not the man I used to be. I will
fight to the end! Athena has already told us about the Nine Sense and finally
I understand her true meaning!"
Artemis is silent.
"All of us Saints have Guardian Stars that protect
us. If we do not have enough power to fight, we will make up for it by
Guardian Stars, and we call this, the Grace of God. My Constellation
is the Andromeda and in the past I have accessed
power from my constellation to fight, but now I understand that the
Grace of God is to awaken the Nine Sense!
"The real Grace is if I reach the Nine Sense and
thereby reach the Big Will in my Constellation! If I awake my Nine Sense
fully, I can access that power from that section of the universe fully!!"
Artemis still has nothing to say instead she positions
her arrow in her bow and makes aim for Shun. Shun says to himself, "This
Air Current will convert into a Storm!!"
"KILLING BLOW! ANDROMEDA!!", shouts Artemis as a
image of a yellow Crescent Moon appears!
[TODOME DA! ANDOROMEDA!!]
"RECIEVE THIS! ARTEMIS!!", shouts Shun as the image
of Stars of the Andromeda Constellation shines!
[UKE YO! ARUTEMISU!!]
[KURESHINTO MU-N A-RO-----------------!!]
THE MOONLIGHT ARROW FIRES!!!!!!!!!!!
THE AIR CURRENT EXPLODES!!!!!!!!!!!!
"UWAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!", both scream as the arrow hits
Shun's chest and the storm explodes in front of Artemis! Both get blown
away and fall down dead!
But wait, Artemis has still enough life to take
a glance at Shun! Grinning, she says, "An... dromeda... Like I said, you
can't go fight..."
The Goddess was about to take her last breath but
suddenly, Shun slowly rises up!
"Kuhhh....", groans the Andromeda Saint, as he raises
his right hand and pulls the arrow out of his chest!! Artemis can't believe
what just happened and finally falls dead for real. Shun throws away the
arrow, and with trembling feet, he starts walking away.

Cloths is revealed!!
