Well, another CLAMP manga finished! It's very fitting that I'm finishing this up in Kyoto, since I started translating it in Kyoto three years ago. A huge thank-you, as always, to readers and commenters and raw providers, and an especial thank you to those who helped me provide raws internationally for a brief stint in 2008. <3

FX: Breath of air

Sayaka: …!

What's wrong, Fujimoto-kun!?

Fujimoto: …I don't know…

But,
just now--

Was it just the three of us
Here?

Okiura: Kiyokazu-chan?

Sayaka: We agreed yesterday that just the three of us would discuss this.

Fujimoto: …Yeah, that's
Right.

!!! page 02-03
Fujimoto: But

I…
Now…

…I feel like I've lost something.

Something…

Text: The Final Chapter

Fujimoto: …terribly precious…
----------------
!!! page 04-05

!!! page 06
Kobato: …I've

Finally made it

Here!

FX: Flap flipping up

Ioryogi: After sixteen years,
That is.

Kobato: No matter how many years later, I've come.
----------------
!!! page 07
Kobato: It's thanks to you, Ioryogi-san, and Suishou-san doing your best.

Ioryogi: In the end, didn't you die
After all?

Kobato: Because
I originally was told that I had three more months,
Of course I was sad,
But

That I was able to stay in this town
For even that little while, sixteen years ago,

Was my treasure.

Ioryogi: …Geez.
----------------
!!! page 08
Ioryogi: I didn't think you'd be reborn with the memories of your previous life.

Kobato: Ioryogi-san!!

!!!

I knew immediately that you
Were Ioryogi-san.

ioryogi: It was difficult to hear you saying that you'd take me home while you were crying.

Kobato: That was the first time we met,
But I'd always felt, from when I was even smaller,

That someone was watching over me.
----------------
!!! page 09
Kobato: Not my parents,
But the emotions of someone
Very kind.

It was you who were looking out for me since I was born,
Ioryogi-san.

FX: Squeeze

Ioryogi: …

It's not the last time around, but I wouldn't say you're all right yet.

FX: Climbing up

Kobato: But,

That I'm alive,
Ad that I can think that there's something after this--

I truly am happy.
----------------
!!! page 10
Ioryogi: …Really.

Kobato: I was always thinking about them.

We had a connection;
If the Yomogi Kindergarten was still around,
If I could finally get there--

Back then,
The warmth I got from everyone--

I wanted to return it.

Ioryogi: This is certainly the Yomogi Kindergarten that's run by the husband-and-wife team, Okiura Kazuto and Sayaka.

Genko looked into it, and there's no interference from Okiura's father, either.
It's peaceful.

Kobato: I really…

Am glad about that.
----------------
!!! page 11
Ioryogi: But,
Kobato,

The Okiuras here won't remember you.

And Fujimoto won't…either.

Kobato: I know that.
But my wish

Was "to go to where the people I love are."
----------------
!!! page 12
Kobato: That's why,

Even if Fujimoto-san has forgotten, my wish will be granted properly.

Ioryogi: Kobato…

Kobato: Now!

FX: Pointing

Kobato: It says that Yomogi Kindergarten is looking for part-time help!
I have to get an interview and be allowed to help out!

FX: Excitement

I, Kobato, will do my best!
----------------
!!! page 13
FX: Wham

Kobato: Augh!!

Ioryogi: Sheesh, this is the same as sixteen years ago!
Hey!

Kobato: I'm sorry~

FX: Footstep

FX: Patting [her face]

Fujimoto: Is something…
----------------
!!! page 14-15
----------------
!!! page 16
Fujimoto: Do you have business at this kindergarten?

Kobato: So you did become a lawyer!

Fujimoto: Huh…?

FX: Shaking head

Ioryogi: …
----------------
!!! page 17
Kobato: I'm Hanato Kobato.
I heard that they were looking for part-time help here.

Fujimoto: That uniform--you're a high school student, right?

Kobato: Yes!

Since it said that they were looking for help in the evenings, I came to inquire directly on my way home from school!

Fujimoto: I--
No, I've just come here on business,

So you'll have to ask the principal for the details.

[TN: He switches from 'ore' to 'boku' in this sentence; has an older to younger sort of feeling.]

FX: Clench

Ioryogi: ……

FX: Light

Ioryogi: Why is Ushagi-san

Here now…!
----------------
!!! page 20
Fujimoto: …You're late.

Kobato: Huh…

Fujimoto: The person I love
Has finally come back.

I can finally say it.

FX: Dropping
----------------
!!! page 21
Fujimoto: I love you.
----------------
!!! page 22-23
Fujimoto: …Kobato.

FX: Landing

Ioryogi: What the hell is going on here…

FX: Whirling around

Ioryogi: !!

!!! page 25
Genko: Kobato-chan said
She'd go today.

Bird: To Yomogi Kindergarten, yeah.

FX: Crinkling

Genko: I wonder whether she'll get an interview.

Bird: Helping out here, she's been a good kid, but she's clumsy.

Genko: Yeah~

True--

I wondered what we'd do with her when Iorogi first brought her,
She was so small, but--

Well, since she had her previous memories, there wasn't anything that surprised her.

Bird: That's true!
And she got used to things right away!

Genko: If she meets that Fujimoto today, we'll finally see the ending.

FX: Rummaging

Ginsei: Of my prayer to your god?
----------------
!!! page 25
Genko: "When Miss Kobato and Fujimoto can meet once more,
I want Fujimoto's vanished memories to return"?
I never thought you'd wish for that kind of thing for the sake of a girl.

Even to the point of taking that form!

FX: Ta-daa!

FX: Wriggling

FX: Griping

Ginsei: …Hmph.

Genko: It's not just Iorogi.
You feel the emotions from the time you've spent here with her.

FX: Shocked

FX: Death glare

Ginsei: Shut up!
Shut up!
----------------
!!! page 26
Genko: Even if you've put on that form,
Your personality is hopeless!

FX: Chuckling

FX: Dying of laughter

FX: Sudden

Ginsei: Bastard!

Genko: And furthermore, that form is really clumsy…

FX: Mangled

FX: Shaking

FX: Whipping out (like swords)

FX: Battle-cry

Bird: Sheesh--

Please get back to work--
----------------
!!! page 28
Iorogi: He…

FX: Light

Iorogi: Suishou

Suishou: That I'm still inside Kobato-chan is restraining her illness,

But if she gets through this entire life, in the next she'll be born completely healthy.

----------------
!!! page 29
Suishou: Enough that she won't need me.

And then
Will you come to get me?


Iorogi: I won't say no.
And then I'll be in my original form.


Suishou: It'd be wonderful enough if you were as you are now.

Iorogi: Don't say foolish things, silly angel.

I'll wait.

You're mine,
And I'm yours.

Suishou: …Yes.
----------------
!!! page 30-31
Kobato: We were finally able to tell each other properly.

That Fujimoto-san…and I love each other.
