Finally here is the last part of CMMD, the epilogue.  Since there are images that have text on them, I' m just going to post the text and the link to the image.  Please read the end of the epilogue to see some notes regarding the next volume. 

Epilogue

  Gavin Hunter who has regained consciousness on the medical room inside the hospital, immediately noticed a girl sitting beside him.
  With a short hair wearing a baseball cap low on her eyes, a rough character with jeans and trainer.  Age is around 16~17 years old.
"Miller huh...."
  Her smile was unfriendly, at most her lips were not stiff.
"Don't push yourself"
  She gently said.
"Just a while ago, there was a communication from Wraith.  That kid was safely delivered into his hands.  And displayed power which are beyond expectations."
"Is that so...."
  Nothing but a coarse voice came out.  Lightly getting up, he looks around the medical room.  Immediately near is the electro-cardiogram monitor, playing a systematic electronic sound.

"....that's good.  I didn't think that we would actually complete it.  We made it.  Thank you.  it was because of you."
"No.  It's a debt to that person----Sagara-san for helping me.  if he didn't arrive, I still might be somewhere in Siberia in a state of trance."
"Well, that's true"
"But, I only helped.  In the end it was because that kid----Al himself.  he designed his own body, an ordinary AI would not be capable of that.  That person called Bunny sure is incredible."
"I see. The [strongest AS] huh"
  Hunter muttered, looking absent minded at the ceiling.
  Even if it is false, to raise a personality and instinct for an artificial intelligence, it won't fail in its own bodily function.  By only connecting into a network, its creativity, and its compatibility will not be given birth.  Standing on the ground, feeling the heat and wind, exposing itself to the utmost limits in combat is important.  That is why that AS----is the most advance artificial human body, would it not be necessary to put in something.
  Hearing of it this far, the [experimental] ARX-5 is not only an AS.  The ARX series thus far, was manufactured in the research room, assembled with special materials.  And then they have not heard of a [super natural phenomenon] occurring while measuring with a high precision measurement device.
  Dramatic variation was shown starting from the ARX-6.  The first pseudo [human body]---- loaded into a remodeled M6, that system functioned squarely.
  Then towards 7.  Next towards 8.  With fierce vigor the completion advances.
  That strange gravitational field generation ability, that itself is already important for the military, thinking of the geneology of this ARX series, is there a connecting element here?
  That's right.  The late Whispered Bunny Morauta, did he notice anything?
"I don't know about that"
  Having asked this question at another whispered in front of his eye, Miller's dark face nodded.
"Being able to help build the ARX-8, I gradually understood.  Could it be that, what Bunny was aiming for was...."
  She cut her words.  Hunter waited patiently for a reply, but she did not say anything after that.
  Having arranged for the rehabilitation, he took notice of the burden on her mind, he changed the topic.
"It seems that you were attending on me"
"Eeh. It's because I was worried."
"I'm alright, Miller.  Why don't you go to a safer place."

"Yes.  If just for a little while, I will do it"
  She lightly stroke Hunter's worn out face, and made a small smile.

Notes to Approaching Nick of Time:

At first I had decided not to translated NOT seeing that HunterSeeker from Animesuki had already graciously provided the detailed summary (which is almost like a complete translation), which the links can be found on the following:

Prologue and Chapter 1
Chapter 2
Chapter 3
Chapter 4
Chapter 4 continued
Chapter 5
Chapter 5 continued and Epilogue

However, since HunterSeeker also suggested that I continue with NOT, I will do so just for the sake of completion and continuity.  Not to mention that I only recently acquired NOT.  However, I don't think I would be able to finish NOT that quickly seeing how I still have other matters to attend to.  In any case, if you really want to know what happens in NOT, the links above are provided for your convenience.  Also don't forget to thank HunterSeeker for the great service he's been doing for the community.
