"See, I thought that would be a good idea. Old Hell, in its majority, was kind of in a high watch regardin’ me, after Utsuho and I got into that little contest of ours and we almost blew up the Palace of Earthly Spirits. And by "almost" I mean it didn’t blow up ‘cause we melted it. However, this one big gal, and I mean big like an Outside World bulldozer, and there’s no doubt she ate three o’ those for breakfast every mornin’, name of Hoshiguma, said she liked my guts. Apparently she also heard how I almost made an Infinity Bomb with Suika’s gourd by the Hakurei Shrine, and now this. She invited me a drink."
"Now, things were goin’ mighty fine ‘till this point, but then this Oni gal noticed somethin’: That I wasn’t gettin’ drunk. See, the Hourai Elixir breaks up alcohol almost instantly, so it is pretty much impossible for me to get drunk, I just enjoy the taste of sake. So Hoshiguma notices and she’s like a big eyed puppy askin’ me how did I do that, ‘cause by now I should be dead of alcohol poisonin’, or at least alcoholic coma, and I tell her I can down any drink she has for me ‘cause I’m fiercely magnanimous like that. She took that as a challenge.”
"S-so, pbbbwahaha, so she brings out these bottles from like under a shelf, the label is faded and I swear to yer deity of choice they smell of the Asuka era, those bottles had to be older than me, by Izanagi’s nose hair, so she’s like "Ok, Fujiwara, you and me, let’s go", and damn right I ain’t gonna pass up on the chance to drink sake that good. I say "yeah, sure" ‘cause I have the Elixir in me, yeah? That damn thing was so strong that it overpowered the Elixir’s speed in breakin’ apart the alcohol.”
"I get shitfaced, is what I am tryin’ to say, the first time in ever, and boy am I a rowdy drunk, apparently. She was like, "Oi, Fujiwara, yer lookin’ tipsy!" and I am like "yer sayin’ yer better than me at drinkin’!?" and then we start crackin’ up some jokes, arms around the other, buttin’ heads and banterin’… Until we have the genius idea of havin’ a friendly fight in the midst of it. Turns out, my line of thought seems pretty aligned with that of Oni: I hate lies, love booze and adore a good tussle. Well, this tussle was so good, we demolished three districts of Old Hell and were chased by a horde of angry Oni… Then Hoshiguma and I beat them up, too. When I came to my senses, we were hidin’ somewhere near the Hakurei Shrine, in clothes I didn’t recognize, reekin’ of alcohol. I made a friend but I also made a lifelong ban from that place, bwahaha."
