Episode 1: The Unknown
Amenonuhoko: Hmmm... That's not right... That's not right either...
Amenonuhoko: Hm? Oh, Commander, it's you. How long have you been standing there?
Amenonuhoko: For a few minutes? I didn't notice at all.
Amenonuhoko: Hm? What was I doing? Here, I was painting a picture.
Amenonuhoko: What did you need to see me for? Are we heading out to battle?
Amenonuhoko: Oh... That's a relief. I'm glad we don't need to fight right now.
Amenonuhoko: I don't like fighting.
Amenonuhoko: I would much rather paint my pictures. I prefer creating things. Not destroying them.
Amenonuhoko: This picture? What did I paint, you ask? Well...
Amenonuhoko: I'm not sure.
Amenonuhoko: To be honest, I'm not really sure what I want to paint.
Amenonuhoko: I do know I want this fighting to end as soon as possible. I'd like to be able to paint a peaceful world.
Amenonuhoko: But I can't.
Amenonuhoko: See, it didn't come out right at all. Actually, I can't even tell what it is, let alone if I painted it well or not.
Amenonuhoko: What do you think, Commander?
The commander was confused. If the one who painted it couldn't tell what it was, who could know?
But she was so sweet-natured the commander couldn't tell her that.
Episode 2: World-Making
As she faced her canvas, the commander asked her if she had finished her painting.
Amenonuhoko: Zzz... ...Huh?
Her commander was shocked to realize she was asleep!
Amenonuhoko: Oh, Commander, it's you. How long have you been standing there? I didn't notice at all.
The commander thought inside, "That's because you were asleep."
Amenonuhoko: Oh, this picture? No, I wasn't painting.
Amenonuhoko: I was just trying to figure out why I haven't been able to paint recently.
Her commander didn't have the heart to say what came to mind first, which was, "Really? It looked like you were just sleeping."
Amenonuhoko: I heard once that this land and all the stars we see were created by a huge explosion.
Amenonuhoko: I used to think that all creations started with an idea.
Amenonuhoko: But perhaps creation starts with destruction.
Amenonuhoko: If tht's true, then I don't think painting is right for me.
Amenonuhoko: I'm more suited for making things, not breaking things. Fighting only breeds destruction.
Amenonuhoko: But right now this world is filled with ruin.
Amenonuhoko: Maybe I'm not right for this world at all.
Amenonuhoko looked down sullenly.
"But you've saved me time and again."
"We all need you around, Amenonuhoko."
"You can make something new here."
Amenonuhoko: Yes, good idea.
She was gentle and had the soul of an artist, but right now she was struggling with her own identity.
The commander was shocked to find she had fallen asleep again.
Amenonuhoko: Oh, Commander, it's you. What were we talking about?
Amenonuhoko: What's wrong? Why are you shaking your head?
The commander never knew what to expect with her.
Episode 2: Spiral of Truth
Several days later, the commander went to check on Amenonuhoko again.
Amenonuhoko: *Slurp* Ahh, that hits the spot.
She was drinking tea! Not painting anymore! The commander was surprised by the scene at hand.
Amenonuhoko: Oh, Commander! Come over here! Would you like a cup of tea?
Amenonuhoko: My paintings? I've given up on that.
The commander was startled to hear such news.
Amenonuhoko: Like I mentioned before, I don't think I was suited to painting.
Amenonuhoko: I was fretting over what to paint so much, I ended up stressing myself even more.
"Have you really given it up?"
Amenonuhoko: Yes! I quit cold turkey!
"That's a shame."
Amenonuhoko: Don't worry! I'll find something else to do!
"This world could use more beauty in it."
Amenonuhoko: I'll find something else that's more fitting for this world.
Amenonuhoko: I realized something. The world continues to spin even as these days of war rage on.
Amenonuhoko: If that is true, then surely a day will come when there is no more war.
Amenonuhoko: So, all I have to do is wait. I know a peaceful age will come around again.
Amenonuhoko: I will wait patiently for that day...
Amenonuhoko: Spinning... Spin...
There was a brilliant flash of light and then Amenonuhoko began painting furiously.
Amenonuhoko: Days go by and this world continues to spin. Endlessly spinning! That is the way of things! That is the meaning of the universe!
Amenonuhoko: I finished the picture I've been wanting to paint!
Amenonuhoko: It is like a star and an eye at the same time.
Amenonuhoko: Like eyes that see the truth of this world. That is what I painted!
Amenonuhoko: Commander, I've seen it!
Amenonuhoko: After destruction come rebirth! If i Believe in rebirth, then I cannot wait. I must fight!
Amenonuhoko: Let this brush become my lance!
Amenonuhoko: A new skill, "Spiral of Truth," has been painted into my heart!
It was at that moment she discovered a new skill.
Amenonuhoko: Heeheehee... I did it. I can finally see the picture I couldn't see before. And now my heart is bared for all to see.
Amenonuhoko: Hm? Oh... When I spin around like this... Everything becomes a blur.
Her eyes spinning dizzily, she fell over.
The commander caught her before she hit the ground.
Amenonuhoko: Uh...Commander? Wh-Where are you?
She struggled to find her feet though she was completely off balance. The commander couldn't help smiling at how cute it was.
