The day before the Universal Tag Tournament, featuring the Stray Devil Chojin Combo.
Sunshine, the incarnation of sand, who’s the leader of the Six Devil Knights.
While being good at making full use of his huge body of 3m, he can also take advantage of the characteristics of the material of sand and rearrange the shape of his body in various ways to show dexterous forms during fights.
He was feared as a sand monster, but in the decisive battle with the Justice Chojin, he made a big mistake of losing to Geronimo who wasn’t a chojin at that time but a normal human being...
He suffered a humiliating defeat, but he wasn't dead yet. Immediately after the battle with Geronimo, at the Dream Tag Tournament held after the fierce battle between Kinnikuman and Akuma Shogun, he vowed revenge on the justice chojin with his ally Ashuraman who was the chief of the same six demon knights. The name is also revived as "Stray Devil Chojin Combo"!
So again, it was decided to make one flower bloom as a terrifying devil chojin in the world... Notably, at this time he transformed in various objetcs and achieved a great power-up compared to before.
Its greatest feature is probably the newly acquired Super Special Move: "Curse Roller".
He used to embed key parts that are vital to transformation in the sun mark on his chest, but after that, he secretly changed the position of the key parts. Instead, he had a giant roller embedded in his chest, a new weapon of horror.
But how did Sunshine get such a tremendous amount of equipment and dexterity in this short period of time? Actually, it was related to the fateful encounter he had on his journey to train as a world warrior just before he participated in the tournament!
This story is about the day after Ashuraman and Sunshine, who were the chiefs of the Devil Knights, decided to participate in the Dream tag tournament after leaving Lord Akuma Shogun.
As a preliminary work to participate in the tournament, they curse each of the chojin, secretly capturing their friendship using an arcane technique, and then containing that same friendship power inside a miniature doll.
"Kakakakaka! The teamwork, the source of their power, is now disjointed! The friendship of justice chojin is fragile, hey Sunshine!"
"Oh, Ashuraman! However, you’re the man called the Prince of the Makai. The strategy to stand up is so ugly! Guofofofofo!"
"Huh, that's probably the best compliment for us devils."
A few days after the end of the Chojin War between Justice and Devils, Ashuraman and Sunshine have embarked on an unprecedented tactic in which justice chojin take advantage of the fleeting peaceful skies and curse them to seize the heart of their friendship. And right now, those who succeeded in it were looking down on the ground from far above and having such a conversation.
"Well, in any case, they'll soon break up with each other, and at the next tournament, they'll be tagging and fighting each other. I'm afraid the justice chojin lost their friendship. It is us devil superhumans who will take advantage of the turmoil and win the championship!
"It's true that if you take away the mysterious power of friendship from them, it's a pure battle. You and I are the ones who fought for the strongest position in that elite demon superhuman corps. If we both join hands, I don't feel like losing to those guys. I have full confidence in your ability... but that's it... "
"Hmm, what happens, Sunshine? What's stuck?"
Next to Ashuraman, who was laughing loudly, Sunshine, who had been laughing loudly until then, suddenly turned into a serious look and said:
"Guo ... Ashuraman, let's be honest! I'm fiercely pathetic right now. That's right, I'm afraid of being the strongest devil chojin like you, but I was defeated by just a human being in the previous battle. I lost to Geronimo… To be honest, this humiliation is unbearable."
Sunshine was holding his head with an anguish expression. However, Ashuraman grinned at such a thing and threw a mischievous scolding word.
"Hmm, that's because you were off guard! Kirkkakkakkakka! But regardless of the result, I know best that it's not your ability. Don't worry too much."
However, Sunshine looked like this, was very proud, had a strong sense of responsibility, and above all, was a serious man. You can't be convinced by just one word of comfort.
"Sorry Ashuraman... But I really can't forgive myself! Above all, because of that defeat, the existence of key parts, which is my biggest top secret, was also known. . That's how angry I am... "
"Kakakaka, it's like you're crazy. So what do you want to do?"
"Let's be frank. Will you give me time for the next week? I would like to travel the world alone and redo my warrior training. In that, I will definitely overcome my weaknesses, and regain my confidence as a devil!"
Ashuraman whistled and said with a funny expression:
"Hmm, well, there's no use for you as it is. I don't know if you'll spar with an elephant in Africa or playing with anaconda on Amazon. By next week, be sure to come back to this place in time!"
"I'm grateful, partner! I'm sure it will take just a week..."
"Ke, I'm still sorry for that. So I'll ask you one usual question before you leave. Do you know why I chose you as your partner?"
In fact, Ashuraman and Sunshine were also famous duos who have been tag teaming in hell for a long time. And this was the question Ashuraman asked Sunshine every time before the match. And the answer to how Sunshine would return was also decided.
"Guffofofo, because I'm stronger than you!"
"Kurkkakkakka! Stupid is still wrong today! But don't forget that megalomaniac!"
"Someday I'll defeat you in a single match and prove it, so be prepared! See you in a week, my buddy!"
"Oh, I'll wait without expecting you then, big idiot!"
As it was, Sunshine turned into sand and was blown up by the wind, carried away somewhere. Ashuraman, who saw off the whole story, muttered.
"Ke, do it well. I still trust you, my buddy..."
Ashuraman's eyes staring at the sky. At that time were somewhat gentle light that no one could never see on the ring. However, the only person who knew his eyes was the sun...
A few hours later, Sunshine arrives in the middle of a vast desert under a scorching sun.
This is Saudi Arabia, a country in the Middle East. The wind had carried him to the heart of the Rub al Khali desert in the south of the country.
The desert is so vast that it covers about a third of the Arabian Peninsula, stretching about 1000km from east to west, and is dotted with towns and one of the largest oil fields in the world. However, the central part of the desert is so vast that it is very dangerous to enter, as there is nothing but endless sand dunes. In the middle of the day the temperature rises to nearly 55 degrees Celsius, but late at night it drops to below freezing due to radiative cooling, and there are extreme temperature differences throughout the day.
Why on Earth did Sunshine come all the way to such a place for? Of course, it was to start with his training as a sand chojin all over again.
In the middle of the Rub-Al-Hari Desert, a sand prison created by nature that you can never get out of alive, he has come here to remember the horror of the sand, to rediscover his pride in calling himself the Guardian of the Sand Hell, and to cultivate his skills and new ideas for tormenting his enemies.
"Guffaw, guffaw, guffaw! This is it, this endless emptiness! The fear that would never get out of here, that anyone would die in a heap! The overwhelming sense of intimidation, of feeling something else, something invisible, when there is nothing but sand! To create this feeling through the sand in my body, it is essential that I have the poise of the Rub al Khali desert! This aura is what I've been looking for, what I've been looking for since I was defeated by a mere humans!”
Sunshine shouted, happily blending into the vast desert sand, becoming a dune, dancing in the wind, bursting and spreading again as a tsunami. Like a child bathing in the summer sea, he regained his sandy instincts and frolicked.
But it was just after noon, the hottest time of the day, when the unbearable torment of the scorching heat was soon too hight even for our desert brethren, Sunshine.
Of course, it is easy for Sunshine, who is sand, to endure a little heat. However, there was one element that was unbearable even for him. This was the fact that when he was here, all the moisture was completely absorbed and lost.
Even though Sunshine's entire body is made of sand, he is still a chojin creature, and as long as he is constantly performing some sort of life activity inside his body, he still needs a minimum amount of water. But in this place, it is difficult to keep even a tiny amount of water. After all, there is not even a shade, so there is nowhere to escape. It's sand, not soil, so you can't even dig a hole.
"Oh my God, this is unbearable! Isn't there water somewhere?
But it was a light brown world of sand dunes as far as the eye could see. There really is not a single person, not even a trace of life. I'm really in trouble if this continues.
It was at that moment that Sunshine decided to take to the skies again, hoping that the wind would carry him away from the desert. He had thought that there was not a single person in this desert, but when we looked up from the sky, we saw three figures on the top of a sand dune about seven or eight kilometres from here.
"Are they out of their minds to come here in such a small group? Guffaw!
──To be continued
It would have taken Sunshine only a few minutes to reach the distance of 7-8 km, if he had been able to catch the wind from above. And when he got closer, he was very surprised.
They were neither human nor animal, but rather chojin, just like him. They seemed to be fighting with each other, one against the other.
"I'm not sure what to make of this, but I think it's a good idea to try and find a way to make the most profito f it. “
No wonder Sunshine thought so. First of all, the two men were thug-like chojin, with little to no special features.
The other was a rare type of chojin whose torso has a giant roller. He stood there with a blank expression on his face as he faced the two thugs. He was probably the one being attacked, but Sunshine felt a little uncomfortable because this roller guy seemed strangely calm compared to the two thugs.
The mystery of his discomfort was soon solved.
The first thing that happened was that one of the two goons approached the roller man and tried to grab him by the chest. Suddenly, the huge rollers in the man's chest began to spin wildly, and the thug was grabbed by the head with both hands and pushed head-first into the working rollers in his torso.
"Blody Fluid Dehydration Squeeze!”
With a scream of grief, the thug was quickly caught between the rollers on his torso. As the thug was caught in the rollers, his blood, sweat and other bodily fluids are pouring out from both sides of the rollers. This is the precious "water" in this desert. Sunshine gulped at the sight.
A flaccid, dried-up thug was ejected from the roller man's back. He looked like a squeezed piece of meat that had been deprived of all the water in his body. He was probably completely dead. What an atrocious sight!
And the roller man who committed such an atrocity didn’t seem to be disturbed at all, and seemed to be moistening his throat, slurping up the body fluids of the thug he had taken with a cool, natural look.
"That roller guy, what a man..."
Sunshine was deeply intrigued by his cool-headedness.
Meanwhile, the other thug, who had just watched the whole thing, was so terrified that he turned away and made a mad dash for it! But he was in the middle of the desert, and even at full speed, his legs were trapped and his speed was limited.
The roller man who had started to chase him, on the other hand, lay down on his side and used the roller as a wheel to level the ground as he followed the fleeing man. And how fast he goes!
In no time, the other thug was captured and easily preyed upon by the rollers, who drain the water from his body and kill him.
With a look of righteousness on his face, he begins to gulp down the bodily fluids that he has squeezed out of the second thug.
Sunshine, watching the disturbing scene, was also extremely thirsty. He was interested in the man's fighting style, but he also wanted to simply steal his water.
Sunshine, once again in chojin form, descended from the sky to the ground and stood in front of the roller man with a thud!
"Guffaw, guffaw, my name is Sunshine! I saw your fight, and I liked it! But I'm thirsty at the moment, and I was wondering if I could have some of that water you're drinking?”
But the roller guy's reaction was as cold as ever. Still unmoved, he turned to Sunshine, who had suddenly appeared.
"What's the matter with you? Do you want this water? Why don't you try to get it by force? I don't think you can.”
"You don't know me! Who the hell do you think you're talking to?”
And with those words, Sunshine plunged into the roller guy!
But the roller man was waiting for him, and just as he had done with the thug earlier, he began to spin the roller violently, catching Sunshine's head in his hands and pushing it into the roller of his body!
Sunshine's body plunges into the rollers, but for the first time, the roller man shows his impatience when the water doesn't come out as usual.
But just before Sunshine got caught up in the roller part by part, his body was unbound and transformed into silky sand!
Only a large amount of silky sand was ejected from behind the roller man. The moment all the sand was ejected from behind him, Sunshine reunited with himself and took his original form. He grabs the roller man from behind and throws him far backwards with a German Suplex!
But the ground on which he landed was only soft sand. Before long, the prone Rollerman activates his rollers again, and comes hurtling back towards Sunshine!
Sunshine was ready to see what kind of attack he was going to make this time, but Rollerman jumped up and stood upright in front of him and held out his right fist...
"Drink up, man. You're thirsty, aren't you?"
There was a glass of water in his hand.
Sunshine, who was thirsty, took it without hesitation and gulped it down in one gulp.
"It's good! There's nothing like the life blood of a freshly dead chojin!”
But what kind of wind was that? Wasn't he provoking him to take it by force? As if to answer this question, Rollerman spoke up.
"My name is Rollerman. In the desert of Saudi Arabia, I'm a brutal chojin who finds his prey, squeezes the water out of them like before, and keeps his throat moist with their living blood. By the way, you're Sunshine, from the Six Devil Knights, right?"
"Oh, you know me?”
"I'm not sure what to make of it. I've had a chance to see how good you are, and I have to say, that high-angle German you just dropped from the first floor would have been a destroying move in a proper ring, if you hadn't left it there.
"Guffaw, guffaw, guffaw, I can't tell you how many chojin I've sent to their graves with that move!”
"I'm sure you've heard of it, but I'm not sure if you've seen it. I'm sure you'll be pleased to know that I'm not the only one.”
In addition to the fact that he was in a slightly better mood, he also began to speak frankly with the roller man in front of him.
"In fact, I'm here on a training trip. If you've been following the news lately, you'll know that I was defeated by Geronimo. That's why I've lost all confidence in myself. I've been living in a constant state of obsession since that day. I've come to this desert land to shake it off and get back to my roots.”
“Did you find anything that might help you get out of your slump?”
Sunshine smiled and said: "Yes, I've found it, just now!”
At the same time Sunshine pointed to the huge roller on Rollerman's chest.
"'That's quite a destructive roller you've got there. I'm impressed.”
"What? You mean me?”
"Yes, yes. In fact, since a while ago I've been completely fascinated by that roller. The roller is not just a weapon, it can be used to secure water for survival, or as a wheel to move around on bad ground, and it has all the wisdom of a brutal chojin living in the desert. It's full of identity and pride, isn't it?"
"Well, I'm certainly proud of this roller, hehe!”
"Yes, and it's that sense of pride that I lack. I have a favour to ask of you, Rollerman! Will you teach me the secret of the desert roller, how to use it and how to use it effectively?”
Suddenly, Rollerman was puzzled by the proposal. He looked him in the eyes once more. He doesn't think he's making fun of him or saying things on the spur of the moment. His eyes were pure. He was a devil, but he was a strange one.
"All right! If you're that serious, I'll give you all the roller skills I've got! Prepare yourself!"
"Thank you! I'll start training tomorrow! I don't have time for this.”
But despite this promise, Rollerman was still left with one big question.
"But what about the rollers? You don't have a roller like me built into your chest, do you?”
"Oh, I've got a few ideas there. Yes, I have some ideas about that. I'll have something for you tomorrow, okay?”
And with that, Sunshine turned into a grain of sand and flew up into the sky, disappearing into the eastern sky.
──To be continued
At the same time the next day, Sunshine returned to the same spot where Rollerman was waiting. To Rollerman's surprise, a huge roller had already been attached to his chest.
"What's wrong with that roller? How can you do that in just one day?
"Guffaw, guffaw! Yesterday I flew east to Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates, to get two huge rollers for levelling the ground. They are no match for your rollers in terms of size and intimidation!
In terms of size, they were certainly impressive. But there was a bigger problem.
"Sunshine, is that roller made of steel?”
"Yes, it is. It's a steel roller of terror that will break down any tough body.”
Rollerman, hearing this, suddenly dropped his shoulders in disappointment.
"What's the matter? Did I do something wrong?”
"You're going to use it to get rid of the sweat and blood, aren't you? Then won't it rust easily if it's made of iron?
"Ahhh, I see!"
"In addition to the fact that it's a good idea to know what are you looking for. But that's not the big problem, the big problem is...!"
Not wanting to hear such negativity, Sunshine stubbornly interrupted him.
"Wait a minute! But I don't have time to get a new roller now. This is the only way to go!"
He understood that he was in a great hurry, and decided to show it by practice rather than words.
"I'm not going to do it. I'm not sure if I'm going to be able to do that. I'm sure you'll be able to find something that works for you.”
"Hmm? It's not directly related to rollers, but that's okay. I'm sure you'll be happy to hear that.”
At the moment when Sunshine became a pyramid, there was a loud thumping sound. Sunshine looked down and was shocked. Two huge rollers were tumbling to the ground.
"I'm not sure why I didn't see it coming, but I did.”
"That's what happens. You will have to drop it with a thud every time you transform, and then reattach it when you return to your original form.”
"Oh no! It's not going to work! I thought it was a good idea!”
"No, there's a way.”
"What can I do?”
"I'm sure you'll be able to figure out.”
“You're right. If you can transform yourself into anything, it would be easy for you to just transform a part of your body into a roller.”
"The truth is, in order to stabilize this elaborate transformation of mine, you need a lot of image training. For example, in the case of the hell pyramid, which I tried to show you earlier, I went to Egypt and dived into the pyramids every day for about three months, and studied their structure thoroughly. It was only when I spent time as if I were the pyramid itself, that I became able to transform it into a certain shape all the time. Therefore, although no one can notice it, the inside of my body when I transformed the pyramid, from the secret passage to the room with the coffin, was perfectly reproduced as the pyramid of King Khufu. I'd feel better if I didn't!"
Rollerman wasn’t sure how nervous this Sunshine guy, who seems to be so open-minded, really was.
"You don't have to be so particular about it, it's just... it's too good to be true.”
"'No, no. If you use the word "transformation", then a half-hearted resemblance will tarnish the sign of the transformation craftsman. If you don't know everything perfectly, I'll get weak and undo the transformation right away!
"But despite all that, the transformation of the Arc de Triomphe doesn't seem to have recreated the fine surface carvings of the Arc de Triomphe on the Champs-Elysées in Paris..."
Sunshine's shoulders twitched in anger, but Rollerman didn't miss it, and a torrent of retorts poured out of his mouth!
"'Oh, that was deliberate! If I wanted to, I could have made a perfect Paris Arc de Triomphe, from the statues on the surface to the patterns around the roof! But the reason I don't is because... well, you know, there are all sorts of adult considerations in this world!"
If he didn't agree to this, his life would be in danger. With such a sense of urgency, he decided to end the conversation at once.
I know exactly how you feel," he said. I know how you feel, so why don't we study the structure of the roller, put ourselves in the roller's shoes and try to make the perfect roller? And how long do you think that will take?
"Well, in my experience it would take at least a month, but circumstances have given me only a week. I don't know if I can..."
"No, what are you waiting for? You're a genius at transforming things, aren't you? You're the leader of the Devil Knights, after all. You can do it, you have to do it!”
"Well, you're a roller, aren't you, Rollerman? So, if I know how you feel, I can complete my transformation into a roller?”
"Yes. So, for the next week, you're going to be in my life, you're going to sip the fluids of my prey, you're going to stare at the desert with the same feeling... yes, you're going to be me!”
"Okay, okay! Then, for one week from today, I will be your valet. Guffaw, guffaw, guffaw, guffaw, Rollerman!”
"Well, I'm glad to have a friend in this lonely desert! Nice to meet you!”
For the next week, Sunshine and Rollerman were more than brothers, they were one in the same. They woke up at the same time, fed on the same prey, sipped the same blood, trained at the same time, went to bed at the same time...
Five or six days passed in a blur, and Sunshine began to feel that he was beginning to understand the true nature of Rollerman.
Why would this man, who was supposed to be a brutal chojin with a crooked mind, be so kind to a complete stranger like himself? It must be because he has been living a lonely life in this wide desert for so long.
He has no other choice but to live a cursed life, sipping the living blood of his prey, which he crushes with the roller in his chest. If he went into town, he would be stoned and thrown out. He has lived for decades in the Rub al Khali desert, in the middle of nowhere, alone and unaccepted.
But then, for the first time in his life, there was a man who praises the roller in his chest. That man was him, Sunshine.
"So he's going to teach me all about his lifeline, his greatest secret, the roller technique. Well, he has put all his trust in me, so I'll have to work hard to perfect this secret!”
With this in mind, Sunshine fell asleep in the middle of the desert on a cold night, watching the happy face of Rollerman who had fallen asleep earlier.
Finally, the morning of the seventh and final day arrived. When he woke up, there was no Rollerman, who was always by his side.
"Hmm? Has he gone to the toilet or something?"
Sunshine tried calling out to him, but he didn't respond at all.
"It was the last day of the tour and he had gone..."
But when I looked to the north, I could see a trail of dragged rollers stretching for miles.
"What, has he gone off on his own? But these footprints, using the roller as a wheel, mean that he has gone a long way... no!”
On closer inspection, he realised that these roller tracks were not the result of a self-propelled run, but rather the result of someone forcibly dragging the trail!
"Does this mean he has been kidnapped?”
In the north, Sunshine remembered that there was a settlement of chojin and livestock that Roller Man used to prey on.
"It's also possible that the people there have come for revenge and have taken Lawler Man away to bring him to justice?”
I don't want that! Today is the day that Rollerman must be taught the secret to finish the job... but more importantly, after a week of eating and sleeping together, Rollerman's life could be in serious danger!”
Without a second thought, Sunshine transforms into the rollercoaster shape that Rollerman usually displays, and drives it at full speed towards the north, following the trail of his dragged ruts!
An hour later, we arrived at the northern village. Unfortunately, our bad premonition had come true.
Rollerman was crucified on the execution platform in the middle of the town, surrounded by a group of strong and powerful chojin. The execution was about to take place.
"Hey, Rollerman! Answer me, Rollerman!"
When he spotted it from the gates of the town, Sunshine was completely distraught and shouted in a loud, deafening voice.
Then, shaking his huge body, he made a mad dash for the centre of the town. But in his path stood the town's vigilantes, many of them justice chojin!
"No one will stand in the way of Rollerman's execution!”
"Get out of the way, boys! Through there!”
"Not so fast! He's a felon who's been terrorizing this town for decades! Today is the day he dies in peace!”
The number of enemies in front of you is about 30. You're outnumbered and outgunned, but you have no choice!
"I'm going to kill all of you!”
“Whoa, whoa, whoa!”
There's no guarantee that he'll make it out alive, but he's ready to jump into the ring of the enemies!
──To be continued
"Whoa, whoa, whoa! Let's go for it!”
Sunshine takes the form of a giant frame, spinning at high speed, and immediately sends a few of the people scattered around the area flying into the distance!
"I'm still going! Come on, hell pyramid!”
And then, just as it seemed to break down into many pieces, they all transformed into a small pyramid! The pyramids, with their sharp tips pointing down at the ground, rain down on the enemy army like a hail of bullets!
This pierced the hearts of several more people.
After that, there was the Triumphal Arch of Hell, the Concrete Press, the 40 Sentence Rocket, the Devil's Guillotine Drop, the Giant Swing, the Mexican Stretch, and many more.
Sunshine, like a demon god, has turned into a powder keg of rage, and there's nothing anyone can do to stop him...! At the end of the day, the town's vigilante group of righteous superheroes, of which there were so many, is down to the last one who seems to be its leader.
That man asks the angry giant Sunshine: "What are you...?”
"Why are you risking your life for that hated man? If it weren't for him, everyone in this town would live happily and peacefully, but you're just a stranger passing through, aren't you? Why do you stand in the way of our peace!"
But as he spoke, Sunshine became more and more agitated!
"He has caused you a lot of trouble, I'm sure! But haven't you been the ones who have been driving him crazy and leaving him all alone? Then you're just as guilty as he is, aren't you? You can't understand how lonely he is.”
"Hmm, one of those freaks is worth a lot more than all of us..."
"What? He's alone and you're all here, so can we just execute him by majority vote? Is that what you're saying?”
The vigilante leader, however, was resolute: "Numbers are justice. If one sacrifice makes many happy, so be it.”
This is the first time that Sunshine's patience has been completely snapped!
"I'm not a fan of your kind of justice!”
Sunshine grabbed the man with both hands and opened the door to his chest.
"I can't take it anymore! I can't stand it any longer! I'm not going to be able to hold back any longer! I'm going to use Sunshine's new special move, the Desert Roller Dehydration Squeeze!”
He wasn’t sure what to make of it, but sure it's a good idea.
The man's body is pressed into the roller, and all the moisture oozes out of the sides of the roller!
──To be continued
"Guffaw, guffaw, guffaw! Isn't it perfect? At last I've mastered a new special move!
Just when Sunshine was almost certain of victory, there was a cracking sound and the rollers began to slow down. Just when it seemed to have come to a complete stop, the transformed part of the roller completely collapsed. Sunshine was left with a huge hole in his chest.
The image of the rollers had faded slightly in Sunshine's mind. As a result, the strength of the rollers was weakened.
To make matters worse, as he slipped out of the roller, Sunshine's heart was bared in front of him! And just as he was about to bite down on it, he saw it!
"Sunshine! Take this!"
The man's voice rang out for a moment, and then, with a jerk, a new voice came from behind Sunshine. And then, from behind Sunshine, a new roller was set on his chest! It was the perfect size, and it was even easier to use than before!
"Thank you! Resurrection, dehydration squeezer!”
It happened in the nick of time. This time the man was completely swallowed up by the swell of the new rollers, his entire body drained of fluid, and he died.
"'That was a close one! You're a roller man, and I owe you your support!”
He turned his head towards the voice behind him and shouted: "Gaeea!”
Rollerman was bleeding from his mouth, but he was still trying to get his last words out.
"You were the first person in my life to be kind to me. I've had the best week ever..."
"Hey, don't die on me! Rollerman!”
"Hehe, I can't do it anymore, but... I couldn't do it anyway after my execution. So I'm hoping this roller will live on in you...”
"You’re still alive! We'll live together, roller man!
But ignoring Sunshine's words of comfort, Rollerman continued.
"How do you like my roller? The roller is made of concrete from desert sand. It's made of the same sand as your original material, so it won't separate when it transforms.
"And in the last week you have understood my feelings and the heart of this roller man. It will be easy for you to use this roller...”
"I hope you will use it to unleash your true wrath on the righteous hypocrites of this world. At least in my book, you're righteous... Sunshine!"
And with those last words, Rollerman died.
And in this northern town, there was no one left but Sunshine...
──To be continued
"Rollerman… Your special move, dehydration squeezing.... From now on, I want to call it the "Cursed Roller" and pass it on. We devil chojins will never forgive the half-hearted evildoers who put on the mask of righteousness and rule this world with their own faces. Let's show this rotten world just how pure and noble true evil really is, along with your regretful curse! With my ally, Ashuraman! Guffaw, guffaw, guffaw!"
With that declaration, Sunshine looked up at the still-crucified Rollerman with tears streaming down his cheeks as he laughed loudly, and then he and the other righteous chojin he had defeated dug a grave and buried them in the same pit.
"At least in the afterlife, you won't be alone, Rollerman."
Sunshine then turned back into sand and rode the wind and the jet stream back to the foot of Mount Fuji in Japan, where Ashuraman was waiting.
"Hmm! It looks like you made it back just in time. So, did it work?"
Ashuraman asks with a grin, just a week after Sunshine left Japan.
"Yeah, well... A lot has happened, but don't worry. I got what I went for.”
"Karkarkarkark! You look so glum, I'd have thought you hadn't achieved anything, but your attitude... you've had another one of your stupid dreams, haven't you?”
"No, I'm not! I'm a cold-blooded, ruthless, cold-hearted devil chojin! How could I possibly have any feelings for you?”
"Well, what do you think? I'm also a cold-blooded, ruthless, cold-hearted devil chojin too! You'll be able to get a lot more out of it. You'll have to learn to live with that!”
"Shut up, I don't need to be told. But...”
Sunshine asked Ashraman, a little embarrassed.
"'Do you think, Ashuraman, that there is justice in the devil?”
"Of course they do! For us demons, the only justice is to do evil to the uttermost! We kick the little bastards who are happy with their nonsense, and we beat up the hypocrites! I believe that evil has its own aesthetics, but so what?”
Sunshine looked satisfied and started laughing out loud.
"'Hahahahaha! Ashuraman, you're still my best buddy!”
Ashuraman looked at him suspiciously, but somewhat happily.
"I don't want to get into the details, but I'm glad to see that you've gotten over it! Now let's see what you've been learning in a week, shall we?”
"Oh, sure, mate! Don't sit back and watch!”
The chest opened up and from the back of it two huge pairs of rollers began to whirr and spin wildly. The chest opened and two huge pairs of rollers began to whirr and spin wildly.
"Here we go! This is Sunshine's new special move: the Cursed Roller!”
Ashuraman is delighted by the appearance of this unexpected device!
" That's interesting. Well done, Sunshine!”
"We're going to throw all the hypocrites in the world into this thing and press them all over the place. I'm getting excited, aren't I, mate?”
"Yes, but, Sunshine, why are your eyes watering as you spin that roller?”
As Ashuraman pointed out, a trickle of water was running down his cheek.
"Oh, it's just the Arabian sand in my eyes. Don't worry about it.”
