I would like to propose a toast.

To my dear friend, August, the King of Ev.

Welcome to the Festival of the Beast.

Where masks symbolize unknown terror.

And we celebrate the day that I vanquished that terror from our land.

But when the two moons become one, The Beast Forever will return, and it will be worse than ever before.

And it will obliterate everything in its wake.

But if you build us weapons, with our expert knowledge, your technological prowess...

[glass shattering]

We can... we will defeat it.

You say you have "expert knowledge."

Tell me, what expert knowledge would this be?

Anna?

We know that this beast will come from the sky.

Where not even the giants can reach.

It will have a heart and it will think, and it will feel, and because of that, it can be killed.

You disagree?

We both read the signs differently.

But one reading must be right, and the other must be wrong.

Are you the dumb one, then?

Langwidere...

So she's the dumb one?

Child, show some respect.
