[TSUBASA enters]

TSUBASA:
Gentlemen, gentlemen!
I trust everything is okay?

FANBOY2:
Did you get the merchandise?

TSUBASA:
Oh, yes, of course! Limited edition promotions!

FANBOY3:
Limited to every store in town.

TSUBASA:
Ah... joke! Good joke! Very funny! Yes!
Magazines have said I run the best promotions
This side of MegaTokyo. In fact, my -

[pounding on door]

FANBOY1:
Oh-Em-Gee Double-yew-Tee-Eff?!?!

TSUBASA:
I-i-it must be the Cubesoft Guy!
The Cubesoft Guy! I just thought
He was supposed to come tomorrow.
[going to door]
Come in, come in!

[JUNPEI and LARGO burst in]

LARGO:
Where is the Champion of this Arena?
[everyone backs off]
I asked: Where is the Ar3n4 Ch4mp10n?

TSUBASA:
Uh... I-I am in charge here.

LARGO:
We listened for the commotion of battle
As we arrived, but heard none.

TSUBASA:
N-n-no big events this afternoon, sir.
L-later in the evening there's one...

[LARGO motions to JUNPEI]

JUNPEI [climbing on a desk]:
Capable Adventurers and Esteemed Merchants,
L33t-M4ster Don Largo request store
Service and chance to prove ability
In Side Quests of town.

LARGO [to TSUBASA]:
Well? Are there trainers and merchants
Here open for my use?

TSUBASA:
O-o-of course, sir! The promotions here
Are open for everyone.

SERAPHIM [to TSUBASA]:
He's a violent gamer!

TSUBASA [to SERAPHIM]:
Gamers are people too.
[to LARGO] Uh, sir 'leet' Largo,
You said you need to make purchases?

LARGO:
Yes, not all of my equipment is L33t.

TSUBASA:
Yes, well, we, uh, have many things
For you to choose from. Let me get some
Recent additions for you.
[TSUBASA and JUNPEI leave]

LARGO [to those around]:
NPCs, if there are any quests that you
Find yourself unable to complete, you
May ask for my services, and it will
Be done. Whether it is a band of robbers
Or an evil Necromancer, or even a -

[ERIKA enters]

LARGO:
The fair Princess!

ERIKA:
Not another one...

LARGO:
Is it really you? Have I
At last truly found you?
Please, speak your name
So I may be sure.

ERIKA:
Erika.

LARGO:
You joke, surely?

ERIKA:
No, not Shirley, Erika.

LARGO:
Your servant? Perhaps your
Disguise to confuse the 3v1l?

ERIKA:
My name is Erika now leave me be!

LARGO:
Ah, it is a test! You must be
Sure that I am not a spy of 3v1l
Sent to harm you! You are wise,
But I am no minion. But for you...

[singing]

You stand here before me,
But I must know that it's you
And not just some foul trickery.
Let me touch you and see,
That you're not in another
Arena but that you are free!

Nanashiko... Nanashiko...
It is you that I have
Searched for, Nanashiko!
But now I'm here and there's
Nothing you need to fear,
Nanashiko... Nanashiko...

I have traveled this land,
Fighting evil and undead
But all the while seeking your face.
Won't you please take my hand,
Let me lift you and lead you
Away from this dangerous place?

Nanashiko... Nanashiko...
Far too long I've fought to
Find you, Nanashiko!
And should you be taken
I won't rest 'till you're found,
Nanashiko... Nanashiko...

[TSUBASA and JUNPEI enter with box]

[spoken]

TSUBASA:
Ah, sir! I have found some
Things for you to look at.
There is more in the back as well.

[TSUBASA, JUNPEI, LARGO leave with box]

[FANBOY sneaks up behind ERIKA]

[singing in imitation of LARGO]

FANBOY:
Nanashiko... Nanashiko...

FANBOYS:
It is you that we have
Searched for, Nanashiko!
But now we're here and there's
Nothing you need to fear,
Nanashiko... Nanashiko...

Nanashiko... Nanashiko...
Far too long we've fought to
Find you, Nanashiko!
And should you be taken
We won't rest 'till you're found,
Nanashiko... Nanashiko...

[The Prison]

[spoken]

LAGRANDE:
That how I found my Princess.
What could I do without her?
A L33t 0n3 without a Princess
To save is like an AMD Processor
That isn't overclocked! Who
Else's capture would spur his
Conquests and his achievements?
How else would he become a hero?
I'm Only Trying to Help

[The prison]
[spoken]

LAGRANDE:
And what of those left behind; the
Friends of Largo? His surrogate daughter
who idolizes him (but is upset over his
leaving her) and his rival of many years
(who is worried at what may result from
the rampage) seek the advice of Largo's
Long-time friend, the local artist. And
Soon, there enters a man of cunning and
Professionalism, whose concern about the
Implications on his mission outweigh the rest.

[A store]
[singing]

PING:
I'm only trying to help,
I'm only trying to help,
Whatever things may come to pass,
I'm only trying to help.

But my program, it was made,
So my systems are for aid,
I'm only hoping that I can try to help him.

I've been told that he has run off
Seeking zombies and undead,
And I fear that if he finds them
Something might cut off his head!

Oh I love my Largo-sama,
But he has rejected me,
And I'd like to (with a street pole)
Split his skull for all to see!

But if I do, but if he dies,
I'll remind you that my mantra still applies:

PING: / PIRO:
I'm only trying to help, / I know you are, my friend.
I'm only trying to help, / It is okay, my friend.
I'm only hoping that / It will
I can try to help him. / Work out.

MIHO:
I'm only trying to help,
I'm only trying to help,
Whatever things may come to pass,
I'm only trying to help.

Oh, my morals are, you see,
Pure as one could hope to be,
I'm only hoping that I can try to help him.

Oh, I fear that he's spent too long
Playing all those action games,
And should he be found there might be
Certain people who he maims.

For I hear he seeks an evil
He will vanquish in a fight,
Should he think that it may be me
He might kill me in the night!

But if he does, but should he try,
I will try to show him reason as I cry:

MIHO: / PIRO: / PING:
I'm only trying to help, / I know you are, my friend. / Woe, woe, woe!
I'm only trying to help, / It is okay, my friend. / Woe, woe, woe!
I'm only hoping that / It will / Woe, woe!
I can try to help him. / Work out. / Woe, woe!

MIHO:
Woe!

PING:
Woe!

PIRO: / MIHO,PING:
They're only trying to help, / Woe, woe, woe!
They're only trying to help, / Woe, woe, woe!
How sweetly does their friendship hold, / Woe, woe, woe!
They're only trying to help. / Woe, woe, woe!

It is telling, to be sure, / Woe, woe, woe!
That his friends have thoughts so pure, / Woe, woe, woe!
That they are hoping that / Woe, woe!
They can try to help him. / Woe, woe!
