The SoulTaker (2001) s01e07 Episode Script

The Last of a Woman

What lies beyond these
days of sorrow SoulTaker
A voice cries out, awakening
the soul of this cold world
Shedding the loneliness of
yesterday, you rise up to face a new era
What should you believe in now,
hold in your heart and aim for?
The cry of your soul, destroying evil
with your noble roar SoulTaker
A ray of light guiding the world,
clinging to a dream that never fades
A Ceremony to Send off Spirits?
It's an ancient ritual to send the
souls of the dead on their way.
Aren't you knowledgeable, Shiro.
What's your point?
You sure sound like a scion
of the Kirihara now.
Shut up!
You're a Hospital traitor,
let's not forget.
What do you want, old man?
I'm just trying to flatter you.
What do you think, Kyosuke?
You said you could feel the
presence of Flickers here.
It's for Mio
I'm sending off Mio's soul.
You must be Kyosuke?
Is she a Flicker?
She's Tsubaki Tokisaka
my real mother.
I remember it vaguely.
A woman who used
to visit our house.
I was so worried about you.
I'm so sorry.
I don't expect you to forgive me
but I want you to at least
know this.
I didn't want to involve you
so I gave you up
to my dear friend Mio.
The only mother I had
was the one that died.
I suppose.
For you, only Mio
was your real mother.
What's going on with those two?
Who knows.
It's so touching.
Meeting your real mother
like that after so long.
I guess.
What a beautiful moon.
My mother told me I was
born in the moon colony.
That's right.
Did you give birth to me and
my sister for experiments
to develop a perfect mutant?
Who would say such a thing?
The Director of the Hospital.
He said you infected yourself
with the Beta Applicon
to realize the ambitions
of the Tokisaka clan.
That's not true. He's mistaken.
I didn't know I was infected
by the Beta Applicon
when I gave birth
to his children.
Both you and Runa.
If that were true
It is true.
But that doesn't change the fact
that I've put an enormous burden
on the both of you.
Where's Runa?
I was separated from Runa
when we were chased down
by Kirihara.
I've searched everywhere
for her since.
Don't worry, Runa is still alive.
Although it's just
a twin's intuition
..I'm sure of it.
One of the Flickers I met felt
a great hatred for you and Runa.
She said that the Flickers
were created by you as a
decoy in order to hide Runa.
The Flickers are fragments
created directly
as a result of Runa's
defense mechanism.
Defense mechanism?
That's right.
When faced with imminent death
Runa would unconsciously
create a fragment of herself.
What had happened to Runa?
What kind of imminent death?
Please tell me!
Her chest
Her heart was pierced
with a knife.
Who?! Who stabbed Runa?!
I came here to get you!
I'm your real mother and
you are my child!
That's why
My mother is already dead.
You won't get away with this.
We have to take care
of your wound!
I'm fine.
A scratch like this
will heal quickly.
Just leave me alone.
My body is not normal.
I'm so sorry
You've had to fight
such painful battles.
Please forgive me!
There's no need
to blame yourself.
You're a victim of
the Beta Applicon, after all.
When you were a child
you would cry, making it
difficult for me to leave you.
You are my child.
He's nowhere to be found.
Oh, it's just a zombie nurse.
Long time no see.
What happened here?!
Hey! You want to die again?
Good night
It's almost noon,
you sleepy head.
Good morning, Kyosuke.
Just because it's
summer vacation
doesn't mean you can listen
to your radio all night.
Now, go clean yourself up
before you sit down to eat.
All right, Mom!
Well? How is it going?
Extremely well.
Take a look.
It's finally reached
beyond 90,000,000 points.
What about our plan?
Just about set. We need one more.
One more Flicker that'll
be used for the last parts.
You can find Runa Tokisaka
with this?
Of course.
It has an ability beyond
that of Kyosuke Date.
What about the last Flicker?
We're already on to it.
More importantly,
let's not forget our contract.
I will find Runa and
deliver her to you.
In exchange
I know.
The next target is
one hundred million points.
You had a dream?
Yeah, a really weird dream.
I was with some strange man
and a girl as well.
Was she cute?
Well, she was a pretty weird girl.
The three of us were
traveling together.
Looking for something.
Like what?
I can't remember.
It was just a dream, after all.
I see.
Say, Mom
let's go on a trip somewhere?
It is summer, after all.
We'll go somewhere you like.
What're you doing?
Maybe Kirihara knows something
about this Tsubaki Tokisaka.
You think you can hack into
Kirihara's computer with that?
What about mine?
Don't have it.
What do you mean?
You bought two.
This is the second one.
When did I get an injury like this?
The light bulb burnt out.
Could you replace it
for me?
All right.
Thank you.
It's cool and refreshing.
It looks good.
I'll go wash my hands.
Looks like it's going to
rain this evening.
My mother stabbed me
- Hurry up.
- Huh?!
While the watermelon's cold.
Uh, right.
It's been a while, Tsubaki.
Hey, Kyosuke.
Aren't you
He's your father, Kyosuke.
Can I come in?
I'll make some tea.
Oh, don't worry about it.
I brought these.
Kyosuke, you want one?
Got the data.
Got the data.
Wait a minute.
According to Kirihara,
this woman is
This watermelon's pretty ripe.
Have some, Kyosuke.
It's not often our family
gets together like this.
A summer evening.
The family gets together
and shares some watermelon.
One of the simple
pleasures in life.
Isn't that right?
If only Runa were still around.
That's your twin sister.
My sister?
The four of us
There was a time when I dreamed
of a cozy family life like that.
If only it didn't happen.
If only there wasn't
the Beta Applicon disaster.
But you know, Kyosuke
this woman isn't who you think.
Her face and voice are
exactly like those of my wife.
Please, stop.
But this woman is not
Tsubaki Tokisaka.
She's a Flicker.
Please leave.
I want to be left alone with her.
I see.
I heard from my nurses that
you were together with a Flicker.
Thanks to them, I was even able to
play the part of a family man for a bit.
I'm borrowing an umbrella.
Don't tell me that you
manipulated my memory.
Is it true that you're
not Tsubaki Tokisaka?
I'm sorry.
That's right.
I am not your mother.
I am just another Flicker
created by Runa.
What about what
you said yesterday?
No, that was the truth.
I may be a Flicker
but I have Tsubaki's memories
and her love for you.
Please tell me.
Who was the one that
stabbed Runa in the heart?
The real me.
The real Tsubaki Tokisaka.
Y-You're lying
It's not a lie.
That is exactly why I was born.
Runa's desire to have
a loving mother
was what created me.
Why is it that both Runa and I
had to be stabbed by our mother?
Because she loved you.
Please, Kyosuke
Please don't get involved
any further.
I'm going to go and find Runa.
You've already lost the ability
to resonate
with Runa and the Flickers.
Did you take that ability
away from me back there?!
Why would you do that?!
I wanted to free you from a battle
that curses you. That's why.
I don't care what happens to me
but, Kyosuke
At least you must
You must
I guess Flickers are
destined to die.
Come on! Be strong!
I wanted
I wanted
to really feel like
we were mother and son.
I missed them by an inch.
Who the hell are you?
He's not one of those mutants.
Where's Kyosuke?!
Where did he go?!
I have an ominous foreboding.
With this last one that
Kirihara recovered
I feel as though some horrible
force is about to be unleashed.
A guard dog of darkness
that eats up
the lost and wandering souls.
You shall be known
as SoulAnubis.
In order to confront the truth
I decided to go see my father.
A pianoburning patients
The Last Supper
and the SoulAnubis.
How much do you know, Shiro?
Were you the one that
killed my mother Mio?
The SoulTaker.
Mask of Hell.
