I know what you’re thinking, but Dante is a nice man.. so gie the !oor
guy a chance lol. Don’t go "or him be"ore #iberta though, since
$%& o" #iberta’s eents are re'uired to unlock Dante’s.
(he )*ecutie +ead and leader o" the intelligence diision, ,$ years old.
Dante was a !irate in the -editerranean .ea, but currently he’s
the most reliable man in the "amily. )en though he’s well/
known as a man with a strong sense o" righteousness, Dante is
actually 'uite laid/back and loes humor more than anything
else. +e o"ten creates arious kinds o" 0okes to entertain eeryone
around him, and he usually adds 1ダーンテな23 at the end o" his
gags. +is trademark is the small beard on his chin. +e’s like a
"ather "igure to #iberta. +is wea!on is a ba4ooka.
On A!ril 5, Felicita comes to 0oin the intelligence diision "or work.
.he’s welcomed by Ortho and 6ino at the !ort, but since 6ino
attracts bad luck and Ortho is allergic to women.. they end u!
asking Felicita to delier a cigar "or Dante. (he moment she
enters the ca!tain’s room in .. Arcana, Dante greets her with his
trademark gag and 1ダーンテな！3 lol. (o show his gratitude,
Dante then inites Felicita to hae lunch in a "ie/star restaurant
at +otel Il -are the ne*t day. 7olly thinks Dante must be !lotting
something, but Dante only cheer"ully talks about how good
#iberta is at catching "ishes when they 0um! out o" the water. At
least until an old "riend o" his, 8raun, a!!ears to greet them.
Dante introduces 8raun as the "ormer ambassador o" Regalo, but 8raun
doesn’t seem to hae a good im!ression o" Felicita. +e thinks an
ine*!erienced little girl like her won’t be able to lead 1.words3
!ro!erly, let alone become -ondo’s successor. (he reason behind
8raun’s hostility is actually because he lost to a young girl
named Daisy in the elections, and Daisy only kee!s 1!laying
around3 eer since she became the o""icial ambassador 9 buying
dresses, throwing !arties, and !roducing limoncello. +oweer,
Felicita !oints out that Daisy is doing her 0ob with her own way.
.he im!orts dresses to !roide high/'uality silk "or Regalo,
!roducing limoncello because it’s Regalo’s s!ecialty, and she
holds !arties to maintain their connection with "oreign countries.
Dante tells 8raun they might not be able to understand Daisy’s
methods, but young !eo!le like Felicita sure do.
Reali4ing his mistake, 8raun a!ologi4ed "or insulting Felicita earlier. +e
asks i" he can 0oin them "or lunch, and they hae a good time
together until it gets dark outside. A"ter they return home, Dante
reeals that he inited Felicita today so she can meet 8raun
directly. .o 7olly was right, he did hae a !lan in mind lol. 8raun
has been s!reading bad rumors about Daisy, and Felicita went
beyond Dante’s e*!ectations by clearing Daisy’s name "rom
those accusations. +e then thanks Felicita "or today, saying he’ll
inite her "or lunch again sometime.. and ne*t time there won’t
be any hidden !lans inoled.
(wo days later, Felicita receies an initation to 0oin the intelligence
diision’s inshore !atrol on A!ril :;. #iberta is e*cited, but sadly
he’s going to stay back and guard the island instead #O#.
Recently there’s a rumor about a mysterious masked man
s!reading around, and een though #iberta thinks the man must
be a hero in disguise, a lot o" !eo!le are scared. On the day o" the
!atrol, Dante leads his crews and Felicita as they leae the !ort
on .. Arcana. (his is the "irst time Felicita eer rides a shi!, but
Dante thinks she suits the intelligence diision because she
doesn’t get seasick at all. Dante then asks 6ino to e*!lain things
to Felicita and goes to talk to his crews. <n"ortunately, 6ino’s
bad luck then causes a "reaking =+A#) to ram itsel" into their
shi! > ? @ ﾟ ﾟ ..and Felicita "alls into the sea. Dante 'uickly
saes her and Felicita stays calm the whole time, but Dante "eels
bad "or !utting her into danger.
A"ter taking the unconscious Felicita back to her room, Dante
a!ologi4ed to #uca and gies his !endant 9 Inberti Falco 9 to
Felicita. It’s a !endant o" a "alcon holding a "lame/red stone, and
it’s belieed to !rotect the holder’s 1li"e "lame3 "rom burning
out. Dante is about to leae when Felicita suddenly wakes u! and
tells him not to "eel guilty. It was only an accident, and Felicita
belieed that Dante will come to sae her earlier. Dante
reluctantly asks Felicita not to hate the sea because o" this
incident, though he’s relieed when she smiles saying she doesn’t
hate it. Dante then tells Felicita to get a lot o" rest, and he leaes
the room a"ter saying good night.
On A!ril A,, Felicita isits Dante to return his !endant. 8e"ore she
leaes, Dante tells her that he needs her hel! again today. +e
takes Felicita to a restaurant near the !ort, where they "ind
Federica and two re!resentaties "rom the sho!!ing district 9
(heodore and .abine. (ourism is an im!ortant as!ect "or
Regalo, and so they hae meetings eery now and then to discuss
ways to im!roe tourist satis"action. .abine makes the best !esce
scor"ano >scor!ion "ish@ a'ua !a44a in her restaurant, but they
hae no idea how to !romote it to the tourists. .ince it’s a dish
!eo!le can only en0oy in Regalo, Felicita suggests !rinting out a
1menu to en0oy Regalo Island3 "or the tourists. (hey can include
.abine’s restaurant and dish in the menu, and !eo!le can hae
"un "ollowing the guide when they isit Regalo. .omething like a
.ince Federica knows a talented designer, eeryone eentually decides to
!rint a guidebook which is designed like a menu 9 1Buida
Regalo3. =hen they walk out o" the restaurant, Dante says
Felicita did a s!lendid 0ob today. )er since Felicita became the
leader o" 1.words3 and started working with the intelligence
diision, she has taught him a lot o" things he neer knew be"ore.
7ust like how 8raun handed his !osition to Daisy, Dante thinks
he should !re!are to !ass the baton to the 1ne*t generation3 too.
-eanwhile, a man is watching them "rom the dark alley. +e
wonders what Dante is !lanning to do ne*t, and he decides to get
On A!ril AC, Felicita receies a letter "rom Dante, saying he wants to
talk in !riate at the !ort. Felicita goes to the !ort looking "or
him, but a!!arently the letter was a "ake written by the man
"rom be"ore. +e introduced himsel" as Dlaude, a "reelance
re!orter, and he a!ologi4ed "or the "ake letter. +e only wants to
interiew Felicita, but he didn’t know any other way to meet her
directly. Dlaude says he knew Dante eer since the latter’s !irate
days, but it’s obiously only a coer to trick her. =hen Felicita
re"uses the interiew saying she’s not allowed to talk about the
"amily, Dlaude suddenly knocks her out and kidna!s her onto a
shi!. +e knows about their Arcana !ower, and he’s !lanning to
hand it to his country 9 6ord. It’s a !ayment "or Dante’s
1betrayal3. +oweer, the masked man soon a!!ears to sae
Felicita.. though Dlaude knows it must be Dante behind the
mask. Dante a!ologi4ed to the unconscious Felicita and tells her
not to get inoled with him anymore. Or else she’ll get
consumed by the darkness too.
=hen Felicita o!ens her eyes, she "inds hersel" on Dante’s back. .he
showed him the letter written by Dlaude, and Dante only
e*!lains that Dlaude has been lurking around him "or a long
time. +e admits there’s a reason behind this, but it’s not
something he can tell Felicita easily. +e !romises that something
like this won’t ha!!en again, so she should "orget about this
incident. +ere Felicita tries reading Dante’s heart, but she can’t
see anything inside.. other than endless darkness. Dante notices
this, and he tells Felicita 1i" you really care about me, !lease
don’t get inoled with this case3. Felicita nods and smiles at him
be"ore going home, which sur!rises him that she can still smile
a"ter what ha!!ened. .adly they’re not done dealing with Dlaude
yet, because he’s !lanning to get reenge on Dante "or
1betraying3 their home country.
6oticing that both Felicita and .umire trust Dante a lot, -ondo decides
to gie him a !unishment out o" !ure 0ealousy lol. 7olly gies
them , suggestionsE >:@ gie Felicita and .umire a sur!rise hug
a"ter his oerseas tri! >A@ stri!, wear only his trench coat.. and
become a "lasher in "ront o" Felicita and .umire ﾌﾟｯ
>※థ F థ@ .G. >,@ coer Felicita and .umire’s eyes "rom behind ∵ ∵
and say 1guess whoH it’s DanteI23 -ondo doesn’t want his wi"e
and daughter to take any damage though, so in the end he asks
Dante to collect 1healing words "or -ondo3 "rom them. .oon he
returns with letters written by Felicita and .umire, and 7olly
drags him out so -ondo can en0oy reading his 1loe letters3. 6ot
too long a"ter they leae the room, -ondo’s scream o" horror is
heard "rom inside. 7olly chuckles since eerything went
according to !lan, while Dante is only staring at him in disbelie"
9 saying 1what a terri"ying man..3 *D
On -ay 5, Felicita isits Federica’s sho! with 6ino and Ortho. (he "irst
issue o" 1Buida Regalo3 has been !rinted out success"ully, and to
show their gratitude, they make a dinner reseration "or Felicita
and Dante in +otel Il -are. .ince Felicita hasn’t got the chance
to wear the beauti"ul dress she got "rom Federica, now is a good
time to do so. Dante is already waiting when she comes to the
hotel, and he orders sea"ood "or their dinner. )en though
they’re here to rela* tonight, Dante has a re!ort "or Felicita. +e
already told Daisy about Dlaude and his abduction attem!t on
Felicita, and Daisy did her best to send Dlaude out o" Regalo.
8raun was also there to watch Daisy at work, and he can "inally
a!!roe her skills as an ambassador thanks to this. 6ow that
Dlaude is out o" the way, eerything should be alright. For now.
(he ne*t day, the "irst edition o" 1Buida Regalo3 is "inally !ublished
and distributed. )eryone’s im!ressed by the contents, but Pace
!oints out that the su!!ly o" !esce scor"ano is running low
thanks to the high demand. At noon, Felicita 0oins Dante and his
crews again "or another inshore !atrol. Dante then hands his
!endant back to Felicita, saying it will !rotect her when he’s not
around. O" course Felicita doesn’t want to get in danger on
!ur!ose, but Dante says danger is always lurking around as long
as she’s in the "amily. A"ter checking the area around them,
Dante lets his crew go "ishing to !ass time. (his reminds Felicita
o" what Pace said, and so Dante asks #iberta to catch as many
!esce scor"ano as he can. It’s not a common "ish, but Dante will
introduce him to a great blacksmith who can take care o"
.!eran4a as the reward.
8y the end o" their !atrol, #iberta has caught a #O( o" !esce scor"ano.
(hey inite Felicita to eat .abine’s a'ua !a44a together, but she
chooses to go home and consere the "ish su!!ly. 7ust then
someone throws a letter at her, and she "inds a message "rom
Dlaude insideE 1Dante is in danger. I’ll gie you in"ormation as
an a!ology "or last time. Dome to the !ort on -ay A; at $ P-,
and don’t tell anyone about this.3 .ince Felicita is a bad liar,
Dante 'uickly "inds out about this message. <!on reading the
letter, Dante laughs and says it’s all nonsense. +e tells Felicita
not to worry, because he’s going to take care o" this case.
On -ay A%, Felicita isits Dante at the ca!tain’s room on .. Arcana.
=hile he "eels ha!!y that #iberta’s Arcana !ower has im!roed
so much >a"ter their duel on the :Cth@, Dante admits he "eels a
little lonely. +e knows that -ondo !robably "eels the same too as
he watches Felicita growing u!. Dante then e*!lains to Felicita
that 1Dasa 8ianca3, the "acility #iberta burnt down, was located
in 6ord. (he area was always surrounded by a snowstorm, and
so nobody eer "ind out what was going on inside. Peo!le thought
it’s a "acility "or or!hans, while in reality the sta"" kidna!!ed any
or!hans they can "ind in Regalo 9 using them as guinea !igs "or
(arocco research.. and who was behind the whole thingH =ho
else other than 7olly. ＼>JoJ@／ 8ack then Dante "ought him
saying it’s un"orgiable to sacri"ice kids "or research, but 7olly
only said -ondo’s li"e is much more !recious than all o" the kids
combined together. (hat, and the kids will die i" they release
them anyway. (hey can’t !ossibly surie out there.
Fukurota’s hoot brings Dante’s mind back to the !resent. +e then tells
Felicita that he’s worried about them. #iberta, 6oa and her are
the "uture o" the "amily, but the com!ensation taken by their
Arcana will surely gie them hardshi!s in the "uture. +oweer,
Dante is sur!rised when Felicita answers with 1I will choose my
own !ath.3 Des!ite the burden brought by her Arcana, Felicita’s
determination and dedication "or the "amily will neer change.
Dante is im!ressed and says Felicita is really strong. +e might
not need to worry about her, but he still wants Felicita to
remember those words. .o that one day, when she leads the
"amily with #iberta and 6oa, they can look back and say 1there
was a man who said this once..3
On -ay A;, Felicita "inds #iberta behaing all sus!icious with 6ino and
Ortho in Dante’s o""ice. (hey 'uickly e*!lain it’s not that they’re
u! to no good, but "or some reason.. Dante suddenly gies them a
day o"" today. +e said he will be away "or the whole day, warning
them 6O( to search "or him no matter what. (his reminds
Felicita o" Dlaude’s message, though she can’t tell them anything
since she was asked to kee! 'uiet. Following Ortho and 6ino’s
adice, Felicita and #iberta then searches "or Dante’s logbook in
the shi!. (hey "ind an address written on a torn !age, which
turns out to be the address o" 8raun’s illa in town. On their way
there, they meet a worried 8raun who was on his way to see
Felicita too. It turns out that Dante isited his illa earlier, and
een though Dante re"used to say anything, 8raun can tell that
Dante was !re!ared "or something to ha!!en.
8e"ore they can "igure out what’s going on, suddenly a loud e*!losion is
heard "rom the !ort 9 "oreign shi!s are attacking Regalo2 From
the !ort they can see a light destroying the shi!s "rom a"ar, and
it’s obious that someone is "ighting the enemies alone. .omeone
who holds a -a0or Arcana, that is. At "irst #uca thought it’s
7olly, but the "act that 7olly 0oins them in the !ort makes it
im!ossible to ha!!en. .oon 7olly take oer the command and
orders 6oa and Pace to ca!ture any intruders in town. +e also
tells #iberta to lead the intelligence diision to !ursue the
esca!ing enemies, while #uca will be staying in the !ort "or
backu!. As "or Felicita.. 7olly wants her to "ind that certain "ool
who’s currently "ighting alone 9 1(he )m!eror3 9 and drag
him back here.
-eanwhile, Dante >in his masked out"it@ is running out o" energy a"ter
using his Arcana "or so long. .oon Dlaude a!!ears to attack him,
but Felicita arries 0ust in time to sae Dante. =hen Dlaude
lunges to attack her, Dante 0um!s in to !rotect her.. and his mask
breaks into two u!on taking the hit. Dlaude then runs away
laughing since his ob0ectie was to reeal the masked man’s true
identity to Felicita, but instead o" being shocked and bombarding
him with all sorts o" 'uestions, she only asks why Dante ke!t
hiding beneath the mask all this time. +e answers it was his way
to atone "or his 1sin3, because he was actually a s!y sent by 6ord
to collect in"ormation regarding (arocco.
=hen Dante was young, a big war broke out around this area. Regalo
was inoled as well, but one day Regalo suddenly announced
inde!endence a"ter wi!ing out the "oreign troo!s in the island.
Dlaude "ound out that the ruler o" Regalo, Arcana Famiglia, has
a s!ecial wea!on, and Dante was sent to gather in"ormation "or
6ord. Dante then disguised himsel" as a !irate and lurked
around the mansion, but "ate brought him to meet -ondo one
day. Obiously Dante had no chance against -ondo and 1(he
=orld3, but something une*!ected occured at the end o" their
"ight 9 1(he )m!eror3 suddenly absorbed Dante’s blood and
chose him as its holder. Des!ite Dante’s origins, -ondo warmly
welcomed him into Arcana Famiglia. +e told Dante that as "ellow
Arcana holders, they’re a "amily "rom now on. Dante was
touched by the kindness o" eeryone in Regalo, and in the end he
chose Regalo oer 6ord. Dante ke!t sending "alse in"ormation to
his home country a"ter that, but eentually Dlaude "ound out
about his betrayal.
6ow that his 1sin3 is reealed, Dante is !lanning to return to 6ord with
Dlaude. +e’s going to let them use his body "or research, as a
!roo" that (arocco’s !ower isn’t necessarily destructie at all.
Dante wants to stay until the end o" 1Arcana Duello3 though,
because he wants to see Felicita’s growth u! until the end.
+oweer, Felicita then hugs him saying she’ll sto! him "rom
leaing. A"ter a short silence, Dante "inally !ats her head and
laughs. .he’s right. It won’t be right "or him 0ust to 1watch3 her
growth, because he’s going to "ight her too in the tournament.
Felicita is going to do her best, and Dante knows he should do
(wo days later, Felicita goes to the beach and wonders about Dante’s
home country beyond the sea. .he was !racticing alone when
Dante comes to 0oin her, and they start s!arring until Dante
laughs 9 im!ressed at how much !rogress she has made. .oon
Fukurota a!!roaches them "rom the sky, and Dante remembers
when he "irst gae the owl to Felicita. 8ack then she was still
liing with .umire and #uca in the small house, and Dante can
only come eery once in a while because o" his 0ob.. so he gae
her Fukurota to kee! her com!any. (here are a lot o" rumors
regarding owls, but Dante told Felicita to raise Fukurota
howeer she likes. 8oth o" them hae grown a lot eer since that
day. Felicita says Dante has changed too, and he says it’s because
he’s got nothing to hide anymore. .he can read through his
heart, so there’s no need "or him to act like a 1good adult3 in
"ront o" her anymore.
(he ne*t day, Felicita asks Dante to let her shoot the cannons on ..
Arcana. >KLﾟ M ﾟ｀@ENG.’ENﾌﾞｯ =hen Dante brings her onto the
shi!, Felicita notices that Regalo looks so small and beauti"ul
"rom a"ar. It’s the island Dante tried to !rotect with all his might,
and he still treasures Regalo u! until now. A"ter checking the
su!!lies, Dante teaches Felicita how to light the cannon and aim
it at the target. +e’s im!ressed since Felicita has a really nice
aim, and both o" them hae "un shooting cannonballs until it gets
dark lol. 6ino will !robably get angry at him "or using u! their
cannonball su!!lies, but Dante tells Felicita not to worry. .eeing
her smile is totally worth enduring his crews’ wrath. *D
On -ay ,%, Dante inites Felicita to 0oin their oyage again. +e’s going
to sail the sea "or work today, and -ondo asked him to take
Felicita along. Dante also tells her that his crews didn’t get angry
about the cannons, since they’re willing to do anything "or
Felicita’s smile lol. .ince she seems curious about the scenery
"rom the shi!’s bow, Dante then li"ts her u! and makes her sit on
his shoulder. (his way he won’t be worried about her "alling into
the sea, and she can "ully en0oy the scenery 9 C.; "eet aboe the
shi!. =hen Felicita asks i" she’s not heay, he says she’s as light
as a mouse. -/mouse..2H O>；∀； lll@ Dante then laughs and tells
Felicita to sto! !unching her head, she should burn this scenery
into her mind instead 9 the scenery o" the island they loe.
On the night o" -ay ,:, Felicita "inds Dante outside the mansion. +e
admits that "or someone who’s about to reach 5% in age, he still
has a lot o" doubts and worries. +oweer, he’s going to throw
them all away and en0oy Arcana Duello tomorrow. Dante tells
Felicita to "ight with all her !ower, because he’s going to do the
same until they meet each other in the match. It’s his way o"
swearing his loyalty to her.
Arcana Duello "inally starts on 7une :, and Dante has to "ace .umire in
the "irst round. =hile it seems awkward since they hae been
good "riends "or a long time, both o" them are en0oying their
battle. Pnowing he can’t win with regular attacks >since his
ba4ooka takes time to charge be"ore attacking@, Dante swings his
ba4ooka around to hurl wind towards .umire. All .umire wants
to see is Dante’s determination, so she asks what he’s going to do
a"ter the tournament ends.. and Dante gies her a clear answerE
1I will choose my own !ath23 It’s something that he learned "rom
Felicita, and he’s going to su!!ort her i" -ondo is really retiring.
Dante launches "lames "rom his ba4ooka a"ter that, winning the
match as .umire takes the multi!e hits. As he hel!s .umire to
stand u!, she asks him to take care o" her daughter.
=hen he meets Felicita in the "inal, Dante admits that he used to think
negatiely about Arcana !ower and (arocco. 8ut right now, he
"eels thank"ul to "ate "or leading them all the way here. Dante
also admits it’s een harder "or him to "ight Felicita com!ared to
his !reious match with .umire, but it doesn’t mean he’ll go easy
on her. .ince wea!ons won’t work on Felicita, Dante then dro!s
his ba4ooka and attacks with his "ists instead. Felicita dodges his
attacks with her agile ste!s, and eentually she wins the match
by throwing her knies at him. As he colla!ses to the ground,
Dante smiles and says nobody in the "amily can sur!ass her
Felicita receies the to! seat and becomes the new head o" the "amily,
and she also decides to marry Dante in the near "uture. It was
-ondo’s idea "or her to get married, but he e*!resses his
0ealousy by giing mountains o" work "or !oor Dante. ﾌﾟｯ
>※థ F థ@ .G. Dante wonders i" Felicita is really okay with the ∵ ∵
huge age ga! between them, but Felicita doesn’t mind at all. .he
kee!s coming to .. Arcana and sticks to Dante like a glue,
snuggling into his arms when he’s writing his trael logs. Dante
then tells Felicita that he has to go on another oerseas tri! soon,
but she doesn’t need to worry since he will always return to her
side. A"ter all, Felicita is his 8eatrice.. and they’re going to write
their 1li"e logbook3 together "rom now on.
(he "amily holds a meeting a"ter Felicita’s ictory, but nobody !ays
attention lol. #iberta totally "alls aslee!, 6oa is busy staring at
.umire, #uca cries a rier o" tears as usual, Debito can’t stand
the sight o" a デレデレおっさん that is Dante, Pace’s head is
"ull o" lasagna, and 7olly only says 1how nasty3 lol. (hat, and
6oa is ready to com"ort #iberta about his 1"ather3Qs u!coming
wedding to Felicita. *D Dante tries to get them to listen, but
eeryone only goes > ಠR ಠ @ since he couldn’t conceal his ha!!iness
lol. A"ter they le"t the room, Dante gloomily tells Felicita that
eeryone’s trust in him dro!!ed because o" her "irst order as the
new head o" the "amily 9 "or Dante to marry her. 8ack on the
night o" her ictory, Dante took Felicita’s hands and asked 1Are
you really the holder o" Q(he #oers’ and Q=heel o" Fortune’..
Felicita lost the match a"ter Dante uses 1(he )m!eror3 to cause an
e*!losion. A"ter his ictory, Dante tells Felicita that his only wish
is to stay in Regalo a"ter all. +e decides to receie the to! seat to
lead the "amily, and een though Dante is reluctant, Felicita
agrees to marry him. #ater on, Dante brings Felicita to ..
Arcana and tells her he neer thought o" marriage be"ore. +e
was !lanning to disa!!ear a"ter reealing his 1sin3 to eeryone,
so he didn’t think he has any right to hae a wi"e. 7ust then their
"riends interru!t and tell Dante to hae more con"idence. It turns
out that they went on board by using brute "orce, and the
embarrassed Dante can only res!ond with 1／>JoJ@＼ﾀﾞﾝﾃｺｯﾀ
At "irst I thought it would take a lot o" will!ower to !low
through Dante’s route, but it was light and easy.. sur!risingly lol.
=hile it’s hard to imagine romance between him and Felicita, I
hae to admit the endings are really cute. >GL SG@ (hings would ∀
be so much better i" Dante still has his hair though, since he
looks !retty good during the "lashback DBs T scenes. +e didn’t
hae his trademark beard too when -ondo !ro!osed to .umire,
and you hae no idea how much I wish "or him to look like that
in the entire route. >ノ?S@・゜・。+e’s also a noice when it
comes to loe, so he’s actually adorable i" you can get !ast his
bald head lol.
