|"Dah!? Don't say a word about the past, Motosumi! Don't tell me you're making your high school debut!"
"I understand. I promise not to tell you, Licho. Well, you……It's like I'm saying it right now. Hahaha!"
The delinquent-sounding duo attend the infamously powerful Umamichi Academy. Licho is trying to adjust to the school environment, and Motosumi teaches him how to speak in a way that won't be taken lightly. Despite his crude words, Licho smiled as he locked arms with Motosumi. On one hand, the half-human, half-tiger youth is trying to find his own path as a beast after the commotion at the cultural festival. On the other hand, the half-monk, half-layman youth half-dips into Shugendo, which practices the secrets of the Origin Pillar. They enjoy their one and only youth together in the same school, and eventually walk down the "path" that each of them has chosen. It is said that "All who live in this world should know the boundaries of true enlightenment and follow their own path with their heart." The Thunder Gate in Asakusa and the school that stands beside it simply see each of them off.
