|Episode 1 2/3|
Keep singing, elder sister. Make a wish. Your singing will inspire the people of Cephiro.That same white haired guy that talked to Emeraude in the beginning is saying this, and then suddenly gets attacked by Lantis.
Stop this. What's the point?
Are you telling me to end Cephiro? It was my sister Emeraude's wish... that the people of Cephiro would love her. I'd like to make her wish come true. That's all.
And now do you plan to kill me?
I envy you. Only for you has nothing changed.
This is the end for you.Lantis decides to leave without killing him...
It's too late. It's already begun.
So apparently these relationships are a bit different too... Originally Lantis was Emeraude's brother. Now it seems that this white-haired guy is Emeraude's brother and Lantis wants to stop him.
Ascot is approaching Tokyo Tower, intending to kill Clef, and Ferio shows up and stops him.
Give me one good reason why I can't kill Clef!
We've come here to take the divine test. There's only the three to deal with.
Gee wiz, you ruin everything.
We'll leave Alcyone to deal with Clef.
Hikaru, Fuu, and Umi notice that everyone in Tokyo besides them are disappearing... Hikaru thinks it might be because of the wish she made... Mokona even disappears as well. They aren't sure what to do, and then suddenly they see a flying creature and follow it to find Clef laying on the ground. Hikaru recognizes him from earlier, and as soon as he wakes up, he instantly recognizes Hikaru.
Tell me! Has the Ovum gem been glowing since you received it?
I don't know. Nothing makes sense. All I know is that the three of us wished that we wouldn't separate. And now all this is happening!
I see. Then they're still being tested.
Clef and the girls introduce themselves, and Clef says he's from another world and is about to explain further, but then they get interrupted by Alcyone.
The gem is useless. Why have these girls been chosen? Still, only one of them has received the Ovum.
They'll do just fine. I'll kill them.
Run for it! Hurry! Get in the building!
Priest! Why do you protect those girls?
Clef somehow continues talking to them as they flee from Alcyone's attacks.
What kind of cat is that?
It's Alcyone's Spirit Beast! It has the power to manipulate ice.
But why is it after us?
The divine test might depend on those of us from Cephiro.
But what's it got to do with us?
Fuu falls down some crumbling stairs, and Hikaru and Umi are busy saving her. Clef thinks to himself:
They're so close to each other. A miracle could still occur.
Then Alcyone confronts them again as soon as they exit out onto the roof of a building.
Alcyone. Why do you hurt such powerless people?
Well, you're one to talk. Have you forgotten about the Princess' wish?
I'm here because of her wish! A world will be destroyed! How can you let it depend on those who cannot take the divine test?!
Are you saying that you've killed everybody?
Don't make me laugh. There's no one on this wretched planet that can be entrusted with the glowing Ovum gem!
And another thing, little girls.
Do you have any idea what Clef has done to your families and fellow earthlings?
All of them have been imprisoned. In a time warp, that is.
Apparently Clef had to do that so that the world could be saved... Hikaru thinks this is all her fault for failing the test, or something... I'm not sure. This dialog is really confusing and vague...
Alcyone knows that Clef can block all of her spells, so she calls on her cat diety to fight them instead.
Spirit Beast with whom I have a pact! Reveal your true form, my emissary... and answer my summons!Clef and the others escape on a flying beast while the creature's true form destroys the building they were on... The diety's true form is like a Rune-God. At this point I probably shouldn't assume that anything in the original series is accurate to this version of the story.
An evil deity! A fusion of Spirit Beast and human. It possess all the power of the heavens. I can't possibly fight against this evil deity.
Alcyone's diety shoots at Clef's flying beast, and Hikaru falls off and plunges to the ground... This is I think where she passes the "divine test" and activates her Ovum gem.
I'm sorry, Umi. Sorry Fu. You're all in this awful mess... just because you're my friends. I've caused you such pain. Forgive me. I wasn't the only one who was hurting.
Rayearth suddenly appears before her.
You have begun to discover the answer.
Are you a deity?
I must ask you. Why did you make a wish? Why do you have dreams?
I don't know. When my wish does come true, another bad thing happens. But if I give up now... my wish will make everybody disappear.
Good. Assist me. To make your wish come true...
Oh shit... So Hikaru and Rayearth are going to become "A fusion of Spirit Beast and human" just like that thing that Alcyone has.
Very confusing infodumps going on in the middle of this first episode... I'm starting to see where this is going though.
