  109. Misaki: I have people checking all the medical facilities in the city...
  110. Misaki: but no luck so far.
  111.  
  112. Misaki: Did I misread this? Or...
  113.  
  114. Misaki: This is that boy's information ability.
  115. Misaki: I visually translated it so you could see it.
  116. Misaki(outside): I also let Shirai-san see it.
  117.  
  118. Misaki: Thinking about it will only confuse you, so try to feel it instead.

  148.  
  149. Uiharu: Thank goodness! I couldn't reach your smartphone...
  150. Uiharu: so I feared something might have happened.
  151.  
  152. Junko(outside): Oh, my smartphone was crushed below the rubble.
  153. Junko: Sorry for worrying you.

  166. Uiharu: It was a bit of a tricky search, but...
  167. Uiharu: Um...
  168.  
  169. Uiharu: Something strange is happening.
  170.

  186.  
  187. SFX: Creak
  188. SFX: Fall
  189.  
  190. Man: Stop that. It reduces my looks variable.
  191. Ayu(edge): Oh?
  192. Ayu: But it ups your cuteness by a lot★
  193.  
  194. Man: Cuteness?
  195.  
  196. 17
  197.

  214. Ayu(outside): Right?
  215. Ayu: "I saw her too"
  216. Ayu: "So did I!
  217. Ayu: They just keep coming.
  218.

  222. Ayu: And all of the sightings are so confusing.
  223.  
  224. 18
  225.  
  226. Ayu: Sometimes she's an evil spirit.
  227. Ayu: Other times she's just a cute girl.
  228. Ayu: Or a monster, or the grim reaper, or a murderer.
  229. Ayu: She changes roles as much as an opera star.
  230. Ayu: But the common word is...
  231.  
  232. Junko: Academy City Urban Legends?
  233.  
  234. Uiharu: Technically, it is a type of Indian Poker that lets you experience the Academy City Urban Legends.
  235. Junko: Those cards!
  236.  
  237. Uiharu: They're spreading like wildfire among the obsessed.
  238. Uiharu(outside): Here, Saten-san.

  250. Ayu: Miss Bee has started buzzing around★
  251. Ayu: She will find this place eventually.
  252.  
  253. Man: I'm surprised.
  254.  
  255. 20
  256.  
  257. Ayu: Right!?
  258. Ayu: I didn't think you'd look this cute either★
  259. Man(outside): I thought I said no.
  260. Man: Not that.
  261. Ayu(outside): Yay!
  262. SFX: Clap
  263.  
  264. Man: That you have such a high opinion of...
  265. Man: Shokuhou Misaki.

  271. Ayu: their reasons.
  272.

  326.  
  327. Ayu: If all the espers believe in the same rumor...
  328. Ayu: it might just come true.
  329.  
  330. Ayu: The Academy City Urban Legends were...
  331. Ayu: disseminated as an experiment to that effect.
  332. Ayu: Or so some think.
  333.  
  334. Ayu: And Indian Poker was used to do so.
  335.  
  336. Ayu: Yuuri Senya and...
  337. Ayu: the Academy City Urban Legends...
  338. Ayu: are becoming closely linked.
  339.  
  340. Ayu: As more people learn about her...
  341. Ayu: she becomes linked to the AIM Diffusion Fields filling Academy City.
  342. Ayu: And she can...
  343. Ayu: receive that power without limit since she lacks the bonds of a body.
  344.  
  345. Ayu: So...
  346. Ayu: she is like a power receiver.
  347. Senya: Ohh!
  348. Senya: Chawahh!

  352. Ayu: That is what...
  353. Ayu: Ideal tried to do...
  354. Ayu: using all of you.
  355.  
  356. Ayu: The problem with Indian Poker is that you don't know what kind of dream will be recorded.
  357. Ayu: But if you control the sleeper's mind...
  358. Ayu: and have them dream the dream you want...
  359. Ayu: you can make any card you need.
  360. Ayu(outside): It requires some preparation, though.
  361.  
  362. Ayu: Even Miss Bee's inferior version can do all this.
  363. Ayu(outside): Pretty cool, right?♥
  364.  
  365. Ayu: Hey.
  366.  
  367. Ayu: Could I have saved you all if I was a Level 5?
