「…何を見ているんだ?」

「………。」

「…花?……この戦場にまだ花が咲いているとはな」

DEは快楽的に殺戮した先ほどと打って変わってその花を見つめたまま、静かに涙を流した。

地面に根差し懸命に花を咲かせている名もなき花はとても美しいのに、どうしてこの世界は憎しみで満ち溢れているのだろうか?

Elsword Storyline in a Nutshell

(Edited on Jan 3 2016, added Elysion)

Elsword: Aha! I’m 13 years old now, and that means I can do whatever the hell I want! Guess it’s time for me to run around Elrios and beat up random creatures!

Aisha: OMG Elsword stop being such a brat! C’mon, we’ve gotta retrieve the El!

Elsword: Be quiet, flatty. This game is named after me, so that makes me our leader! Therefore, you all have to follow my orders!

Aisha: WHAT DID YOU JUST CALL ME!?

Rena: Stop arguing! I’m getting too old for this. Let’s go find Banthus.

Banthus: Haha you can’t catch me! (runs away with the El)

Lowe: Oh no, he escaped! You guys better go find him!

Elsword: Why can’t you just do that on your own…?

Lowe: Uh.. ‘cause I have things… and stuff… to do… ANYWAYS! GO GET HIM!

Hoffman: Hello there! Oh, you’re looking for Banthus? He’s over there!

(The Elgang beats him up) 

Elsword: Well… that was easy…

Aisha: Yeah, but we still haven’t gotten the El back…

Rena: Looks like Wally has the El now. Let’s go get him!

(The Elgang destroys Wally No. 8) 

Elsword: Wow, that was easy too…

Aisha: Crap! Wally got away!

Rena: He’s taken the El!

Hoffman: I bet Wally’s in Bethma now. Go find him!

Elsword: Ugh, we better get the El soon… This is getting annoying…

Stella: Hey, these Lizardmen are terrorizing the region! Please help us!

Elsword: But we’re looking for the El… Oh well, guess we should help out.

(The Elgang swiftly defeats the Lizardmen and returns them to normal)

Aisha: That was easy… I can’t believe these were the Lizardmen that were giving Bethma such a hard time…

Elsword: Yeah, I’m starting to notice a pattern here…

Rena: Look! Wally’s over there!

Elsword: Raahhhh!! Let’s get the El and end this quest once and for all!

(The Elgang destroys Wally No. 9)

Aisha: Yay, we did it! Oh shit, another ship is attacking us!

(Raven steals the El)

Raven: Muahahaha you’ll never take the El from me!

Elsword: FUCK!!! We have to go through ANOTHER region!?

Elsword: There you are!

Raven: Ah, you found me! No matter… I shall kill you all! Wait a minute… S-Seris??? Is that you!?

(The Elgang defeats Raven)

Elsword: Alright! Good job, Rena! You distracted him with your boobs long enough so we could stop him!

Aisha: (smacks Elsword) You idiot!!! This has nothing to do with her breasts! 

Raven: Hey, can I join you guys?

Elsword: … sure, why not? By the way, where’d the El go?

Raven: Um… I don’t have it anymore…

Elsword: FFFFFUUUUUUUUU-

Adel: Nasods are scary pong! Please destroy them pong!

Elsword: No! I am NOT going on some stupid side quest again!

Adel: They have the El pong!

Elsword: Okay, let’s go!

(After destroying a bunch of Nasods and going through Altera Core…)

Elsword: Well, that was easy… But hey! We finally have the El! Let’s go back to Ruben and return it!

Eve: (wakes up) … YOU MANIACS! YOU BLEW IT UP! AH, DAMN YOU! GOD DAMN YOU ALL TO HELL!

Elsword: I wanna be your friend!

Eve: … okay <3

Raven: Hey, was there a robot version of me or something back there…?

Elsword: I don’t know, and I don’t care. Let’s go home.

Elsword: Okay, here’s the El! At last, I can relax at home and do nothing for the rest of my life… Surely, the townspeople will give me millions of ED as a reward for my awesomeness!

Allegro: Help! Demons! 

Stella: Okay Elgang! Go get ‘em!

Elsword: … you’ve gotta be shitting me right now.

(The Elgang drives away the demons from Feita)

Eve: That was pretty easy…

Elsword: I know, right!? Why don’t these people just get their shit together and deal with their problems on their own!?

Ariel: The Velder Kingdom needs your help! They’re under attack!

Elsword: OH COME ON!!!

Raven: Hey Rena… soo…. are the two of us a thing… or…?

Rena: Umm… I’ll have to think about it…

Aisha: Ah! How romantic! I wish someone would confess to me someday…

Elsword: lol that’s never going to happen to you

Aisha: (slaps Elsword)

Eve: … human are so weird…

Vanessa: Oh thank god you’re here! We’ve had to retreat because the demons are too powerful!

(The Elgang drives away the demons from Velder)

Elsword: Too. Easy.

Elesis: Hey! Guess who’s back!

Elsword: Sis! It’s you! You’ve gotta help me. Everyone in Elrios has been asking us to do all these super-easy tasks! I just wanna go home and relax! But these stupid Velder Knights are so incompetent that they can’t even stop the nooby demon army!

Elesis: … you know I’m part of the Velder Knights, right?

Elsword: … u-uhh…

(Elesis slaps Elsword)

Aisha: lol I like your sister already, Elboy

Eve: Hey, who’s that over there!

Add: YAAAAHHHHH!!! (Attacks Eve and defeats her) Muahahaha… now you’re mine!

Elsword: Hey, get off of her, you creep! Shoo!

Add: Grrr, you may have won this time, but I will capture Eve, and I will get my hands on those Nasod codes! (flies away)

Elsword: What a weirdo… By the way, I didn’t know the word “code” could refer to boobs as well

Eve:

Aisha: (slaps Elsword) STOP THINKING ABOUT BOOBS!!!

Vanessa: Good job, everyone! Now send this letter to Hamel!

Elsword: Why can’t you do it yourself!?

Elesis: Shut up and do what she says!

Penensio: Aw crap, demons are here too! Please stop them for us!

Rena: This has been, like, the third region infested with the demons…

Elsword: Yeah, and I thought we could just go home and relax after retrieving the El… Hmph.

Chung: Hello! I’m Chung, and my father was possessed by the demons! Please help me!

Aisha: Oh you poor thing! We’ll definitely help you out!

Chung: Thank you!

Elsword: Ugh, too many girls are joining our group… Now we have 5 girls and only 2 guys!

Raven: Yeah, it sucks…

Chung: B-but… I’m a guy…

(The Elgang gets to the Ancient Waterway)

Add: (saves Eve) Hehehe… behold, your savior! 

Eve: Just because you saved me from Victor doesn’t mean I’m going to give you my codes… 

Add: Fine. Well, can I at least join you guys so I can watch you 24/7?

Eve: … that’s a little creepy…

Elsword: Yes! Join us! We need to have more guys in our group!

Chung: But I’m a dude!

(The Elgang gets to the Halls of Water)

Chung: Ran!!! My name is Chung Seiker. You turned my father to evil. Prepare to die!

Ara: No, stop! He’s my brother! 

Elsword: Oh crap! Another demon! Attack her! 

Ara: Wait! I’m just a normal girl with a fox hairpin that contains a fox spirit that takes over my body from time to time!

(Everyone starts beating each other up)

Ran: Now’s my chance! (teleports away)

Chung and Ara: NNNNNOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

Elsword: Well, I guess that’s that. Now I’m going home.

Chung and Ara: NO! YOU ARE GOING TO HELP US FIND RAN/AREN! NOW!

Elsword: More demons!? Are you serious!?

Emirate: Yeah, go get them for us, will ya?

Ara: Hey, how come Hamel is full of water while this place is completely dry?

Elsword: Who knows. Anyways, let’s get this over with…

(The Elgang defeats Karis)

Elsword: Okay, it’s finally over, right? It’s gotta be over now, right???

Elsword: aoijfoawiehfo8awhgowefoafjdsaf

Lu and Ciel: Hey! Let’s all team up!

Elsword: Oh fine… you can join us. You two seem normal enough

Ciel: By the way, FLAT IS JUSTICE!

Aisha and Lu: (sniffles) Yes! This man speaks the truth!

Rena and Ara: (smack Ciel over and over again)

Eve and Elesis:

Elsword: Hey Chung, why aren’t you cheering too?

Chung: I TOLD YOU ALREADY, I’M A GUY!

Ignia: Hey everyone! Let’s go defeat those demons together!

Elsword: Finally! Someone from town who’s willing to help us!

(Ignia betrays them)

Elsword: Never mind.

Elesis: Hey, it’s Scar! Let’s go get him!!!

(The Elgang defeats Scar)

Elesis: Check this out! I’m Super Saiyan! 

Elsword: No one cares. Can we PLEASE just go home now!?!?

Ignia: Alrighty, you’ve gathered all six Priestesses! That means you get to go to Elysion!

Elsword: What? No! I don’t want to go to another region! Please no!!!

(The priestesses teleport the Elgang to Atlas Station)

Elsword: shitshitshitshitshitshitshitshit

Add: OMG NASODS!!! (Fangirl scream)

Yuno: Welcome to Atlas Station! Some of the Nasods here are acting up, can you please help me subdue them?

Elsword: NO!

Yuno: (Ignoring Elsword) By the way, there’s a girl here who wants to join you

Rose: Hello, I’m Rose. I use a wide variety of guns and I can kick people too!

Rena, Eve, Chung, and Ciel: Copycat.

Elsword: Great, another girl… Oh well, we’ll need all the help we can get I suppose. So where do you come from?

Rose: Another dimension called DFO er, I mean, Empyrian!

Aisha: … okie dokie then.

(The Elgang goes through the first two dungeons)

Yuno: Ah, the Elysion Tower is kinda hard to navigate. I’ll tag along so I can guide you through!

Elsword: You better not betray us!!

(The Elgang reaches the boss stage)

Elsword: Wow, Yuno actually helped us. I can’t believe it.

Code Maya: Looks like it’s my turn to face you.

Elsword: Bring it!

(The Elgang defeats Maya)

Yuno: Great job, everyone! Let me call the elevator for us to reach the next sector

Code Maya: Traitor! (destroys the elevator controls)

Elgang: AAAAAHHHHHHHHHH!!!!

Yuno: Oh no!! (transfers energy from himself into the elevator) G-goodbye… my friends… and good luck…

Elsword: NNNNOOOOOO!!! The one guy that was actually useful and legit tried to help!!!! WWHHYYYYYYYY!?!?

Translator’s note: Although the title says “Red Restraints, it can also be read as "Red Shackles”. Perhaps, it’s hinting at the close bond between Elsword and Elesis. The comic does have some subtle sexual innuendoes… Read it with your caution.
