Transcript

Sakura: "Phew...almost five o'clock...At least this is the last room I have to check. Huh? What's this?

Sakura: A knife?! What's a knife doing in here?! And what is it doing on the floor?

If "Tell a teacher" was chosen:

Sakura: No way I'm touching that! I gotta go tell a teacher!

Ayano Aishi: Heh. Right where I left it. I'll take that~ Hehe~

If "Pick it up" was chosen:

Sakura: I should probably take it and bring it to a teacher or something. Hmm...I mean, it looks so fancy...Isn't this supposed to be in this creepy skull? That's kind of a shame. It looks really cool--huh? T-there's blood on the other side of it!! What the?! I-It even looks fresh...

If "Get a teacher. Now" was chosen:

Ayano: H-Huh? Where'd it go?! Ugh...guess I have to lay low for a while...

If "Stick it in the Skull" was chosen:

Sakura: I-I mean, no one will see the blood, if it's in the skull, r-right? There. H-HUH?! AHH!!!! Ughh...where am I? Gahh!! Who--What-- huh.! Monsters!

Flame Demon: A mortal? Here? How curious.

Sakura: H-Huh? WHOA!!! Who is he? Why is his head on fire??...and why do I feel Iike seriously making out with him?

Flame Demon: Why have you come here, I wonder? Do you have a fascination with the occult? Or have you come here seeking power?

If "I seek power." was chosen:

Flame Demon: Ha ha ha. You are not worthy. Return when you have proven that you can wield my power.

If "I'm interested in you" was chosen:

Flame Demon: Oh, are you? What a pity; I am not interested in you at all. Humans are mundane, boring creatures. Tell me, why should I consider you to be worthy of my time?

If "You don't Understand, I'm INTERESTED in you" was chosen:

Flame Demon: I...what? What do you mean?

If "You're hot" or "You're sexy" was chosen:

Flame Demon: Wh...what...?... Watch your tongue mortal! Do you have ANY idea who you are speaking to?!

If "Some Sort of Fiend Demon" was chosen:

Flame Demon: What? That is not my name! You are unworthy to hear my true name, but you address me as the FLAME demon! Do I have fiends in my hands? Do I have a fiend for a head? No! I have flames! I am the FLAME demon! Get it right!

Sakura: I'm sorry!! I'm sorry!!

Flame Demon: Rrr, what a vexing human...you've caused me to lose my composure...

Sakura: Let me make it up to you with a date.

Flame Demon: And why exactly would I desire to do such a thing?

Sakura: Because you'll have a great time!

Flame Demon: I have no reason to believe in your words.

Sakura: I'll make a deal with you. If you go on a date with me, and you don't have any fun, I'll give you my soul.

Flame Demon: Foolish human! You do not grasp the consequences of your proposal! Do you truly wish to wager your eternal soul?

If "Yes" was chosen:

Sakura: I can't get over this feeling inside...I need to date this demon. Please oh please say yes...

Flame Demon: ...is...this human....serious...?... So be it, foolish mortal! I agree to your terms! There is no backing out of this bargain now! I will go on a...'date'...with you! And, if I do not enjoy myself...I will CONSUME YOUR SOUL.

Sakura: Yes! He said yes! This is going to be so much fun!

Flame Demon: ...so...um...where are we going...?...

If "Park", "Dinner", or "Beach" was chosen:

Flame Demon: Very well! We will now commence our date! Do not disappoint me, human! Hmm. This location is...pleasant.

Sakura: It's a nice place; perfect for a date!

Flame Demon: Bah! Do not think you have won, human! I am not yet enjoying myself! Proceed with your attempts to woo me. DO YOUR WORST.

If "Why is Your Head on Fire?" was chosen:

Flame Demon: When a human becomes a demon, they are reborn into a more appropriate form. This form was the most appropriate one for me, considering the circumstances of my ascension to demonhood.

If "That's a good look on you" was chosen:

Flame Demon: W-What?! That's a ridiculous statement!!

Sakura: It's true though!

Flame Demon: Hmph. How bothersome.

Sakura: I got him a little flustered. Good. Let's keep at it!

If "Who were you before you were a demon?" was chosen:

Flame Demon: The year that I first drew breath was 1431. I was born into a wealthy family. I enjoyed a life of privilege and luxury. Local peasants, unsatisfied with their lot in life, grew envious of my family's wealth. Eventually, their envy turned to rage. One day, a mob of peasants marched into my family's manor, intent on stealing our valuables. My mother and father attempted to resist, but they were no match for dozens of armed peasants.

The peasants beat my parents savagely. When my mother and father were at the brink of death, the peasants burned them alive. Afterwards, the peasants raided the manor, taking everything of value. When they were finished, they burned the manor to the ground. I hid during the peasant's assault, and so I escaped without injury. However, I witnessed my parents beaten and burned to death.

If "I'm so sorry" is chosen:

Flame Demon: For what?

Sakura: For what you had to go through...it's so sad.

Flame Demon: Hmph. Well, I was able to obtain my revenge in the end. My desire to take vengeance on the peasants was so strong that I performed a demonic ritual to commune with a demon. The demon took an interest in me. We struck a deal, and I performed a sacrifice, the demon granted me the power to control fire. I was reborn into the form that you see before you.

I took my vengeance. The peasants experienced everything that they subjected my parents to...and more. I had become a being that was no longer welcome in the human world. And so, once my vengeance was complete, I left the human world for the demon realm.

If "Where do demons come from?" was chosen:

Flame Demon: You truly are an ignorant human...to think that you made it this far without knowing such a thing...

If "At least I can learn from a cool demon like you" was chosen:

Flame Demon: H-Huh?! I-I mean...Yes! You are given a great privilege to learn from a demon like me.

Sakura: Hehe, playing up on his pride. Great strategy. Go me!

Flame Demon: A demon is a human that has discarded their humanity in exchange for great power. A very specific set of circumstances are required in order for a human to become a demon.

First, a human must somehow commune with a demon. The human must express their desire to forsake humanity and embrace demonhood. If the demon decided that the human is worthy, the demon will offer a deal. The human must perform a great sacrifice. After the sacrifice has been performed, the demon will grant the human the power that they desire. It's extremely uncommon for a demon to judge a human to be worthy of demonhood.

If "Why did I only see three demons when I entered the demon realm?" was chosen:

Flame Demon: There were actually dozens of other demons present, but only three chose to make themselves visible to you.

If "What do you do all day in the demon realm?" was chosen:

Flame Demon: There are very few activities avaliable within the demon realm. From the demon realm, one can gaze upon any person or location in the human world. It is quite amusing. It is much like your human invention, the television.

If "Have you ever taken an interest to a human?" was chosen:

Flame Demon: Why would I do that?

Sakura: I don't know. I mean, it would be more fun than just watching them, don't you think?

Flame Demon: I've never been interested in humans like that. I am only interested in their souls.

Sakura: Their souls??

Flame Demon: A demon's power and lifespan are determined by the number of human souls that the demon has consumed. When my power wanes, I strike a bargain with a human in order to acquire their souls so that I may continue living.

Some demons prefer to make their lives more interesting by gambling their souls amongst one another. Gambling with a foolish or gullible demon is an excellent way to quickly acquire a few human souls. Some demons are agreeable, and fraternizing with them can be enjoyable. However, most demons...do not make good company.

If "How many other demons are in the demon realm?" was chosen:

Flame Demon: I have never bothered to count the exact number, but I know that there are over one hundred of us.

If "Are any as amazing as you?" was chosen:

Flame Demon: W-Where is this coming from?!

Sakura: I'm just curious! You're so interesting and stuff. I doubt any other demon is like you...

Flame Demon: Bah!

Sakura: Haha! he is so adorable when he's flustered!

If "Who are the other two demons that I saw with you?" was chosen:

Flame Demon: Are you asking for their names? A demon's true name is a closely guarded secret. To know a demon's human birth name is to have power over that demon. I will not give you such power.

When a human achieves demonhood, they are granted a title that reflects their nature. I am the Flame Demon. The two demons who accompanied me when you entered the demon realm are known as the Pain Demon and the Lust Demon.

If "So, are you enjoying yourself yet?" was chosen:

Flame Demon: ...I...well...speaking to a human in this manner...being asked questions...providing answers...talking about myself...I...it's not...disagreeable...but make no mistake! You are not wooing me.
