Ninja Kamui – Episode 8 | Transcript

The CEO of AUZA dreams of taking total control of the country's energy infrastructure using Yamaji's ninja organization. Emma makes it her personal goal to stop them with Higan's help. Meanwhile, Jason and Mike are still on the run.
Ninja Kamui - Episode 8

Original air date : March 31, 2024 [Adult Swim (Toonami)]

Yamaji and the organization leave the city to hasten their plans. Aska tells Higan that AUZA’s endgame is to seize all energy infrastructure and assume control of each country from within, all the while using the clan as their muscle. Higan and Aska launch an electromagnetic pulse to disable the entire electrical network of AUZA City and escape the barrier. The two of them head to an AUZA power plant to steal portal energy tanks for their suits, with foresight that a lieutenant might be present. Aska enters the plant and is confronted by Big D in his armored suit. Higan arrives in the Kamui and the two brawl it out while Aska disables the plant’s charger by blowing it up. Higan saves Aska as the floor collapses and Big D allows them to leave due to his honor code. Back on the road, they discover Aska’s car computer is being used and suspect it’s Mike. They track him and Jason down to a motel and Aska confesses her true identity to Mike, much to his frustration for her not allowing him to help knowing the truth. Now on the same page, the group turn their attention towards the organization.

The AUZA Reactor…

It produces 2.2 million kilowatts per second.

That’s high power, the equivalent of one and a half nuclear power plants.

Our newly-discovered fuel source, cuborium, can produce unlimited heat via fusion reaction.

It’s clean and low-cost.

The price of energy in AUZA City is unprecedented.

Our customers pay 80% less than anywhere else in the world.

Reinventing the world of tomorrow the AUZA Reactor.

So what do you think, Mr. Secretary?

It goes without saying, but we could build even more power plants with the backing of the Department of Energy.

We can’t fast-track this.

There are fisheries and environmental groups strongly opposed to any facilities being built along the coast.

So even if the department were to grant approval…

I wish you wouldn’t sell us so short.

We at AUZA actually formed an advisory committee just the other day, and the fine folks who agreed to join it are everyone listed here.

What? That’s impossible.

Animosity is really just another form of keen interest, so people getting to reverse their positions is easier than you think.

There’s no way these people would ever agree to this.

Whoopsie-daisy.

Just how much did you bite them off for?

Buy-off.

Rushing development like this will always lead to failure.

We would never resort to such a childish game.

Like I said earlier, don’t sell us so short.

Part of Yamaji’s plan is letting AUZA use his forces as their muscle.

They plan on seizing all energy infrastructure and then assume control of each country from the inside.

After I became one of their lieutenants, I learned that the organization was no more than AUZA’s puppet.

He and the others no longer had honor or respect for the ninja way.

That’s why I feel this was my destiny.

All the time I spent observing them was so that I could ultimately assist you.

Why’d you have to go and tell me all that stuff?

I mean, ninjas? Doesn’t get more dangerous than that.

Aw, hell, dude, we’re gonna be so screwed.

We don’t have time for your freak-out, man.

This place isn’t safe. They could attack us at any…

And whose fault is that? You got me into this mess.

Listen, do you really think you’d have been any safer hacking away alone in your nerd cave?

Huh?

That’s what happens when you start snooping around and messing with these guys.

And once you stuck your neck out, then all you can do is keep pressing on.

[Scoffs]

So dig deep.

Remember your grudge and help me bring him down.

Okay. I’m in. But are you going to protect me?

Of course I’ll protect you.

But there’s something we’re going to need first.

I need a computer, dude.

Hey, there was a name you recognized on that list, right?

Who is that Emma person?

[Sighs]

[Horns honking]

Ah, geez. We got to go through all this crap because of some damn terrorist?

Mobilize the drones.

We can’t.

The entire system is down.

[Bird cries]

Where’s Yamaji now?

I don’t know, but I’m positive

that he must be putting his plans into motion.

Our actions have left him with no other choice.

We should make our next move as soon as possible.

We’ll head for this unfinished power plant

and use the energy there to supercharge your gusoku gear.

There should be some portable energy tanks that we can take.

Operational test?

Yeah.

It’s planned for tomorrow.

My intel says that their lieutenants will be there

to make sure that the gear will react properly.

That’s great. I can force them to cough up Yamaji’s location.

You were in ideal form during that last battle.

Remember the sensation you felt then?

The less distracted you are,

the smoother the gusoku gear will operate.

You must tame your rage.

My rage is not… something that I can suppress easily.

[Insects chirping]

Be as cold as fire and as hot as ice.

Mari used to tell me her dream for you was to… live on.

The gusoku gears’ performance in battle

results from his heart and willpower.

But nevertheless.

I will be the one to protect him.

Interesting. The warrior type, huh?

I’ve always wanted to bust it up with an adversary like you.

And in the face of a true warrior,

I would neither run nor hide in the shadows like a rat.

So let’s settle this fair and square.

I know exactly what you’re after.

You want to know where the boss is.

I will tell you if you can defeat me.

This is no game. I’m just a beautiful human being

who doesn’t want to stain his reputation

with any spite born out of battle.

Sounds like a trap to me.

It doesn’t matter.

The fact remains we can’t win unless we face him head-on.

Come, now.

Let’s make this a graceful battle.

The system is down now. That cuts off our energy supply.

All I need to do is call my crew,

and you two would be dead meat.

But I don’t play like that when I’m in battle

against a true warrior.

The next time we meet,

let there be no interruptions, only elegance.

I’d like to ask you something.

What do you want to know?

Why do you go out of your way to protect me?

I know you said you wanted to uphold Mari’s wish, but

it’s not as if she asked you to, right?

Yes. You’re right. I’m just being selfish.

It’s part of a promise that I made with myself,

to follow through with everything, no matter what.

That’s what my heart settled on after Mari died.

I don’t expect you to understand,

because it’s something personal

that I have to accomplish for myself.

Mari used to tell me her dream for you was to

live on.

Accomplish for yourself, huh?

[Beeping]

It’s my computer.

Someone’s booted it up.

Is it the organization?

That would be the most natural conclusion.

Or maybe…

Thank God we were able to take it without any hassle.

Gotta hand it to you. That FBI badge is hell a useful.

It can be.

How long do you think you can keep using it?

You can’t go back there, right?

Being with the FBI isn’t important.

Huh?

When I’m all said and done,

protecting innocent citizens is a job I gave myself.

No luck. I can’t crack this.

The encryption is just way too strong.

Come on. Don’t you geeks love this kind of stuff?

Yeah, but tech skills at this level,

only a genius could pull this stuff off.

It’s a red flag, dude.

This Emma person must be some kind of big-shot.

You might be right.

Hey, man. Come on, you gotta watch the road.

Hey, rookie, can you guess why I asked you here?

To chew you out, obviously.

You got to stop acting on your own so damn much.

I know you’re eager about the job,

but you’ve been pulling this crap ever since training.

I act on my own because I’m a professional.

Huh?

I know there are times when a delay in judgment

can lead to costly mistakes.

That’s not the point here.

What I’m trying to say is that you lack faith in your friends.

That is so not true.

Hmm? Shit.

It’s nothing.

We’re not family, though. You’re a colleague.

You jackass!

Huh?

It’s you? Goddamn it.

I see how it is.

To think you were a ninja the whole damn time.

Are you in cahoots with the FBI?

No.

Not a single person at the FBI knows the truth.

I was simply just following orders.

So you’re a ninja and a spy, then?

What I did was inexcusable, and an apology won’t help that now.

You make it sound like you don’t even want to say you’re sorry.

That sounds about right.

Well, good for you,

but that sure as hell doesn’t sit right with me.

You put me on this guy’s trail just to lead me further

from the truth, isn’t that right?

This is worse than just stabbing me in the back.

What you did, it goes against…

Sorry. I need some time alone. I gotta process all this shit.

I’m sorry for keeping the truth from you.

It was a duty you swore to uphold until the end, right?

What’s this?

This is my sworn duty.

My daughter died in an accident, and I couldn’t save her.

Those are the words she left behind.

It’s something that nags at me, like a curse I can’t break.

I’m always thinking, “I got to do this.

I got to see it through.”

My heart feels bound to it.

And if experience has taught me anything,

it’s that all humans are like this.

Everybody goes through life burdened by some curse.

Now I know the same is true of you.

Besides, I wasn’t pissed off

by the fact that you were hiding things from me.

I told you before. Come on, let me have your back.

[Chuckles]

This is a lovely drawing.

It may seem like a curse to you now,

but there might come a time down the road

when it proves to be useful.

Care for a drink, just like old times?

[Chuckles]

[Chuckles]

Aah! Ah, shit!

[Birds chirping]

AUZA is building more and more of these power plants in a bid

to take control of this country’s energy infrastructure.

And the ninjas are the force they use to accomplish that,

huh?

No way.

When the hell did they develop this kind of technology?

It’s totally unbelievable.

This footage here, it would never pass as evidence.

It would quickly be passed off as fake.

However, we cannot afford to just sit around here

and twiddle our thumbs. Letting their plans

come to fruition will mean the end of this country.

Ah, those frigging bastards.

In any case, we’d like you to either cover up this incident

or make a public announcement

that will put the minds of our citizens at ease.

Okay, okay. It’s not a problem.

The trust you have placed in us

can endure a small hiccup like this.
