For the last little while I've been unable to shake off the habit of taking various badass movie lines and envisioning them as delivered by Inazuma. This produces many very amusing mental images (for instance, "You forgot your fortune cookie; it says you're shit outta luck nanodesu"), but I think I may just have run across the one that is destined to be my enduring favorite:
INAZUMA (quietly) One: Don't you ever touch me again. Two: Don't you ever touch me again nanodesu. Now. You have no idea who the hell I am or where I've come from, and I am not about to tell you my whole life story. All I need to be to you and everybody else in this naval base is a fixed. point nanodesu. The last destroyer afloat. I do not need your sympathy or your admiration nanodesu. All I need are your compliance and your fighting skills. And if I can't get those, then you can go back to the breaker's yard I found you rusting in nanodesu. Do I make myself clear?
ŌI nods reluctantly. INAZUMA makes a sarcastic I-can't-hear-you gesture.
ŌI (grudgingly) ... yes, ma'am.
She turns and walks off into the elevator.
