Black Mage Hm, so the broom talks backwards. Fascinating.
Fighter (out of frame) Oh good lord no! Stop, I beg of you! Wait, what are… no, not the club, not there, it's far too lar--ARRRRRGH!!!
Black Mage Four white mages? It'll never work.
Fighter falls in front of Black Mage
Black Mage Do I have to do everything myself? Sheesh.
Fighter Kill me.
Black Mage Tempting, but I need you for a shield… I mean travelling cohort. Yeah.

Besides, it's time to kick some giant ass.

Giant looks confused. Black Mage charges up a blast and fires.
Black Mage HADOKEN!
