The SoulTaker (2001) s01e13 Episode Script

The Last Inferno

State the past, analyze the
present and predict the future
I was afraid to be born.
That's how I felt in
my mother's womb.
And I knew more clearly
than anything
that my brother shared
my feelings.
One day I would be killed
by my own mother.
Both my brother and I
foresaw that fate.
Yes. We are twins.
Our fates are intertwined.
We are one and the same.
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
Kyosuke, wake up!
It's morning already.
We'll be late for school!
Wake up, Kyosuke!
Oh, hi Runa
Good morning.
Get your act together!
We go through this every morning.
What do you think I am, anyway?
My alarm clock.
I am not!
Good morning Dad.
Morning Mom.
Good morning, son.
Good morning, Kyosuke.
Mom! Dad!
Kyosuke's so mean to me!
He said I was his alarm clock!
I bet if I sued him for slander
I'd win the case!
I suppose you'll ask your
mother and I to be witnesses?
Then I suppose I should
be a witness for Kyosuke.
Thanks for breakfast, Mom.
Runa, if you withdraw
your accusations
I'll take you to school.
Yeah? You will?!
Accusation withdrawn!
Apology accepted!
Bye, Mom! Dad!
Those two get along so well.
They're almost like lovers.
Twins share a special bond
Kyosuke, do you know
how much I love you?
What about you? Do you love me?
Come on, say it.
Don't ask questions
if you already know.
I can't believe it.
That Maya Misaki would jump out
onto the road like that.
Nothing was supposed to
spoil our happiness.
That was my point in
creating this world.
It happened because
it's what I wished for.
Thought so.
Maya's dead.
So the fact that she appeared
is proof that this place isn't real.
I don't understand why
you created mom and dad.
I did it for you.
I thought it'd make you happy.
But seeing them made me sick.
What's Kyosuke talking
to Runa about?
What are the devils saying
to each other?
Maybe they're plotting
to destroy the earth
I wish you wouldn't say that.
Kyosuke wouldn't do
such an evil thing.
There are only two choices left.
Either he accepts Runa
and lets mankind be destroyed
or he protects mankind
by killing Runa.
It has to be one way or the other.
Which path will Kyosuke choose?
Oh, man.
Then why don't you
do something about it?
Kyosuke might end up dead, too.
I don't care.
"The dead can never
be resurrected," he says.
Imagine, me getting a lecture
from the kid.
Were those the words of a human
or a parting shot from the devil?
This battle is between you and I
as well, Kyosuke.
What road will you walk on?
It's time to give your answer,
Either you love me, accept me
and choose to live in the world
I created for you
I'd better get going.
I have to stop the Applicon Busters
you sent hurtling toward Earth.
You want to save the
human beings?!
I need you, Kyosuke!
But I don't need you.
You're heavy.
Can you get off of me?
Decision's made.
You tried to kill me
didn't you?!
You killed Yui Kirihara
and the alien.
No matter who or what they were
a human being has no right
to take a life.
Don't you understand anything?
You and I aren't human beings.
We suffer like this because
we're not human!
Even the aliens can suffer
Everything began with
the alien's ambitions.
But human interference
caused the most damage.
Yui Kirihara, grandfather, father
They were all so self-centered.
They used me like a lab rat.
They tried to kill me.
My own mother even tried to!
Please don't hurt me Mommy!
I didn't do anything bad!
I love you, Mommy!
I'm sorry, Runa.
Forgive me!
The woman was the devil.
She may have given birth to me
but she killed me when
I became a nuisance to her.
I'll never forgive her
for what she did!
She tried to kill you, too?
You've been tormented
by that your entire life!
So, why do you want
to protect the humans?!
Is he really an alien?
Everything's become
perfectly clear now.
You and I are aliens and
the humans are the devils.
Unless we get rid of those devils,
we won't be able to live on earth.
That's all there is to it.
I am not an alien.
What are you talking about now?
From what I can see,
you're a total alien.
You're very pretty
when you laugh, Runa.
You must be exhausted.
I'm sure you've suffered a lot.
But all that is about to end, Runa.
No! Look out, Kyosuke!
Shiro. Komugi.
Hurry up and get away from here.
No way!
I'm not leaving you here
with that monster!
I'm not going anywhere, either.
I'm staying right to the bitter end.
This is my last warning, Kyosuke.
You must accept me.
I can't do that
You will then be destroyed
with the humans.
Kyosuke Date!
Look at this!
What is it? What's going on?!
Yui Kirihara
and Megumi
My mother Mio.
This space was created
from our sorrows
of you and I,
Shiro and the others.
With alien powers, creating
something like this is nothing.
That's right.
You and I are both aliens!
Don't you realize that
that's not true?!
We're human!
We're human!
It's all your fault that I'm like this.
If only you hadn't awakened
I could have faced a lonely death,
waiting for the end
as I continued to wallow
in fear and hopelessness.
It was too painful to live alone.
But you awakened.
As an alien, just like me.
I saw a hope in you.
I realized that we were twin aliens,
the only two remaining in space.
For me, it was your mere existence
that kept my hopes up.
By becoming as one with you
I believed that my soul
would be healed
and that I would be freed
of this loneliness.
And yet, you betrayed me!
Runa, you are completely wrong!
Aliens and humans are the same!
What's the difference
between aliens and humans?
Appearance, intelligence,
and fighting ability
That's about all!
You're a human!
The reason you reject mankind
is not because you're an alien.
It's because your human spirit
has been dwelling in despair!
Shut up.
Shut up! Shut up! Shut up!
You saying that I'm a human?!
How despicable!
I am an alien, plain and simple!
I don't know about that!
The fragments of your soul, those
Flickers, were really nice girls.
They all had human spirits.
How did you get in here?
Don't be silly.
You created this place with
our sorrows
so, of course our spirits
can enter it.
Right, Kyosuke?
I finally figured this out.
You've got human qualities
like hate and loneliness and all.
You're just some rebellious kid
who resents her mother.
How dare you!
Whatever physical form
or whatever power we may have
we're humans.
The fact that I have continued to
live in this way is proof of that!
I don't believe your nonsense.
Mother tried to kill me!
She tried to kill her own daughter!
Humans are all devils!
Yeah! Get her!
Why is it?!
Why would the world I created
turn on me
Our sorrows belong to ourselves.
I'll accept that you're human!
But if you kill your sister,
you're no better!
A devil!
You said you were going to
save Runa.
Let's see you carry that through,
I will save Runa.
Even if it means having to kill her.
Are you going to kill me?
I am not guilty for being born.
Remember what mother,
a human, did to me!
Try to understand my pain.
No, feel it!
And take pity on me,
Kyosuke Date!
I won't let you die at the hands
of the Hospital.
This is the end, sweetie.
Mommy, don't!
Please don't Mommy!
I love you, Mommy!
I'm sorry, Kyosuke!
Forgive me!
That can't be!
Why didn't you create Flickers
and run away while you could?
You could have done that!
I understood what
mom was feeling.
She wasn't trying to kill you.
She stabbed you so that
you could live.
The Hospital was about to kill her.
She couldn't protect you.
Knowing that, our mother
gave you a traumatic blow
to give you a power that would
allow you to protect yourself.
I don't believe it.
That's why you've been able
to survive this long.
That's a lie That's a lie
Both my mothers thought
the same thing.
I was stabbed by my mother Mio
but I know that my mother
Tsubaki wanted her to do it.
I feel sorry for both of my mothers
It's all a lie!
I don't believe it.
I can't believe that!
You're going to kill me.
Please, no
I don't want to die!
I don't want to die!
That won't work with me.
I'll save you!
Why is it that I was born?
What for?
Why do I have to live such
a sad and lonely life?
Let's think about it.
Maybe we can find the answers.
Let's leave the past behind
and face the present
and have hope for the future.
Until we know how to do that,
you shall live within me.
You're so warm
He did it
Kyosuke, is that your answer?
You killed her to let her live.
Just like your two mothers did.
Thank you, Shiro. Komugi.
Kyosuke thanked us.
He just thanked me.
Wait! Kyosuke!
Kyosuke! Where are you going?!
Come back!
You've won the battle.
You, the hunter of
wandering souls.
The SoulTaker.
Maya, it's all over now.
Let's go home, Kyosuke.
Everyone looks so happy!
What about you? Are you happy?
Yeah, whatever.
But what's with the getup?
Am I supposed to be some patient
on a day pass with a nurse?
Gimme a break.
I just got fired from the hospital
five minutes ago.
For playing darts with syringes.
That figures.
So, Shiro.
What are you going to do now?
Going to travel?
Go and find Kyosuke?
I happen to like travelling alone.
Same here!
I love travelling alone!
Well, how alike we are.
Then, you want
to travel alone together?
Yeah! Let's go! Let's go!
Another beautiful day!
Shall I open the window, Mom?
