- Record1 Clockwork Apple
- My name is..no..as one of the members of Neo Arcadia's city administration bureau, I had no name.
- If a "name" is just a simple means of recognition, it is my serial number, TK-31.
- This series of numbers is what served as my name.
- In order to constantly maintain the humans' utopia, a strict administrative organization, consisting of a large number of mass-produced Repliroids like us, and a group of high-class Repliroids with real names, was necessary.
- The human society satisfied by the calm-hearted peace was replaced in number by the society of Repliroids with advanced functionality.
- I loved the system of the city Neo Arcadia, so supremely well-managed.
- Yes, up until the moment I took that word as my name!
- Coworker A: Look. It's Harpuia..
- Coworker B: So he really has been traveling with the current survey.
- Coworker C: If it involves even those guys from the administration bureau and the Hunters, it must be on a large scale. It's supposed to be very dangerous..a great treasure sleeping.
- TK-31: Hey, you..would you stop that chatter over there?
- Harpuia (in the background): ....Get the supply team going. Good. You are only to collect just the data that is here. Avoid independent action, and report any situations to the accompanying Hunters.
- TK-31: For an information facility from the previous age that kept the prototypes to have been discovered here is extremely unusual. It's natural that Master Harpuia, representing Master X's administration from the scientific branch, would come to supervise on-site. Actually, he should consider it an honor.. Heheheheh..
- Investigator A: The electricity is working..here?
- TK-31: It looks like a huge library.
- Investigator B: Whoa..there's an amazing number of doors. What could so many rooms possibly..
- Investigator B: ..H, hey!
- TK-31: At that time, I..had no idea what I was doing. That I would wander as though guided by something into the deepest data room and eat of the forbidden fruit that was the fragments of history sealed away in the darkness.. That reality would spread out unbidden before my eyes, and lift the veil..
- TK-31: What is this data room..? Ah..aah! Th, this is.... the huge power that led the world to destruction..Dark Elf. The above-first-degree war criminal, Doctor Vile. The end of the Elf Wars..the operation to completely control Repliroids. ..This is Master X! What.. what are they fighting against.. Omega..? What.. what is this record..! I've never seen or heard anything like this! That reminds me..that at the research facility in Area 7, the Baby Elves from the time of the great war are stored..
- (The alarm goes off.)
- TK-31: Huh. Wh, what..! An overflow?! History is rewinding.. Th, the Irregular Wars.. the Sigma Antibody Program.. Mother Elf.. L, light.. Saving the world.. The birth of hope.. This is.. Project Elpis!
- Harpuia: You! What are you doing over there?
- TK-31: Huh..!
- Harpuia: What's the matter.. what are you trembling at? Like I said..you were supposed to just gather data.
- (Harpuia turns off the alarm.)
- Harpuia: Someone like you, even if you were just interested and following your disgraceful curiosity..still shouldn't know pointless things. It doesn't matter. Forget everything you have just seen. Serial number..TK-31.
- Record2 Irregular Passion
- After that survey, I returned to Neo Arcadia and would have spent a week there. During an ordinary day passing peacefully, I felt like that incident was nothing more than some kind of hallucination, as though it had been an illusion projected by signal noise in my memory banks. Yes, no matter what I had seen, it was completely impossible for my feelings about Neo Arcadia to change at all.
- Repliroid: Hey. Don't you think the energy distribution quotas here have become stricter?
- TK-31: We administration bureau Repliroids are treated well despite that. I have no complaints.
- Repliroid: Hmph. That isn't all. The Irregular arrest rate has risen 8 percent. There has never been such an increase..until now. There's a lot of talk that there were no abnormalities in the group that was retired. Did you hear? The group that escaped staged an armed uprising, and engaged in Resistance act..
- TK-31: What are you trying to say! Just who are you..?
- Repliroid: I'm HE-22. I managed environmental preserves from the pre-war days on the environmental bureau.
- TK-31: Preserves..? Oh yeah..you presented the report on that survey.
- HE-22: Yeah. I made the presentation. That..submerged city was deleted from the records. You must notice it too. Something is happening..it's reached a very dangerous level.
- TK-31: Hey! If you keep talking like that, I'll report you to the police!
- HE-22: You don't get it! What is happening lately..to the Repliroids involved in that survey..
- (The Hunters show up.)
- TK-31: Huh..?!
- Harpuia: Nobody move! This is a warrant from the Hachishinkan. Serial number TK-31. You have been designated as an Irregular for treason against the state! I'm taking you into custody.
- TK-31: I, I..? An Irregular..?
- Harpuia: We will regard any who resist as Irregulars and retire them here!
- (An explosion occurs.)
- Harpuia: What? The Resistance?!
- HE-22: TK-31! This way!
- TK-31: I..treason..? No.. Neo Arcadia thinks I..thinks I..!*
- (Later, in the sewers.)
- HE-22: Looks like we got away. Hey, keep it together, TK-31! It's all right. The intelligence you have will be indispensable for freeing our comrades who would be retired on false pretenses. We've been watching carefully for an opportunity to get you out, since you are acquainted with Neo Arcadia's internal conditions and participated in that survey. First, let's get out of here. We'll set up a base of operations. We'll collect the Resistance members scattered around and make preparations for a rebellion.
- TK-31: First.. there's still something I have to do here. Let's head to the research facility in Area 7.
- HE-22: Area 7..? But that's crazy! In the middle of this tight security!
- TK-31: I want to find out what's going on there! That's why we have to!
- HE-22: What..are you saying is there? Hey! Are you listening to me?! TK-31!
- TK-31: Heheheheheh.. Stop calling me by my serial number. My name is really..Elpis! I am the one who was chosen to become the hope of all the Repliroids being oppressed in Neo Arcadia! To do that, Baby Elves, I'll need your..your power! That's right..power..more power!!
