  11. AS: Saten Ruiko.
  12. AS: Sakugawa Middle School 1st Year
  13. AS: Lives in a District 7 student dorm.
  14.  
  15. Saten: There was a rumbling
  16. AS: Level 0.
  17.  
  18. 02
  19.  
  20. AS: There is almost no chance she used her power...
  21. AS: to destroy that building and...
  22. AS: scatter so much sodium chloride around.
  23.  
  24. AS: Based on her past, it is unlikely she belongs to a dark side organization with next-generation weapons.
  25.  
  26. AS: Her testimony changes every time a contradiction is pointed out...
  27. AS: and the polygraph says these are harmless bluffs.
  28.  
  29. AS: Could she be covering for the culprit?
  30. AS: Our leading questions suggest not.
  31.  
  32. 03
  33.  
  34. AS: Is she pretending to have done it for fun?
  35.  
  36. AS: Could be.
  37. AS: Although I still have to wonder why a District 7 middle schooler would be there at that time.
  38. AS: Hah!
  39.  
  40. AS: I bet she happened to be there while out having fun at night.
  41. AS: She said she did it for attention and now she can't back out.
  42.  
  43. AS: I could see a Level 0 student doing that.
  44. SFX: Beep beep
  45. AS: Yes?
  46.  
  47. AS: Um...
  48. AS: The suspect has changed her story.
  49.  
  50. 04
  51.  
  52. Saten: Come to think of it, maybe I didn't do anything.
  53. AS: What do we do?
  54.  
  55. AS: The polygraph says this is true.
  56. AS: We might have questions for her once the investigation of the crime scene is complete.
  57.  
  58. AS: And there are no more buses headed out today.
  59. AS: Have her stay the night.
  60.  
  61. 05
  62.  
  63. Saten: What about my phone?
  64. Saten(outside): Even if there's no signal here.
  65. AS: I obviously can't give you a device that can record audio and video.
  66.  
  67. AS: You're lucky we aren't arresting you for giving a false testi-
  68. AS: Excuse me.
  69.  
  70. AS: The protective custody rooms are full.
  71. AS: Why?
  72.  
  73. AS: There are rumors going around that we're close to war, right?
  74. AS: Well, there's talk of the alcohol imports being stopped because of that.
  75.  
  76. AS: So people are drinking like crazy while they can.
  77. AS: So the rooms are full of drunks?

  91.  
  92. Saten: Sighhh

  103. SFX: Pop
  104. Saten: Pwah!
  105.  
  106. Saten: Phew
  107. Saten: The hard part starts here.
  108.  
  109. Saten: If Uiharu was captured, she'll be in the prison area.
  110. Saten: This detention center is cut off from that by a tall wall.

  119. SFX: Slide slide
  120.  
  121. Saten: Uiharu said there aren't as many sensors on the inside where they have the AIM jammers.
  122. SFX: Slide slide
  123.  
  124. Saten: But there's plenty of security robots, so I can't head down.
  125.  
  126. Saten: And...
  127. SFX: Poke out
  128.  
  129. 09
  130.  
  131. Saten: The prison building entrance is too strictly guarded.
  132.  
  133. Saten: What about the other side?
  134. SFX: Slide slide
  135.  
  136. Saten: Why's it so dark in here?
  137.  
  138. Saten: Doesn't look like much security.
  139. Saten(small): A storeroom?
  140.  
  141. 10
  142.  
  143. Saten: That scared me.
  144. SFX: Heartbeat heartbeat
  145.  
  146. Saten: These are the robots destroyed in the trial.
  147.  
  148. 11
  149.  
  150. Saten: I knew it.
  151. Saten: They must assume no one would go where there's no escape...
  152. Saten: so security on the roof is lax.
  153. Saten(small): There's only a camera at the exit.
  154.  
  155. 12
  156.  
  157. Saten: I practiced youth olympics level running long jumps with Indian Poker.
  158.  
  159. Saten: So can I jump from here to there?
  160.  
  161. 13
  162.  
  163. Saten: No, not a chance.
  164. SFX: Gulp
  165.  
  166. Saten: I haven't tried it outside of the dream...
  167. Saten: so I have no idea how far I can jump.
  168.  
  169. Saten: My shoes are only sneakers.
  170.  
  171. Saten: The jumping point is a step up.
  172.  
  173. Saten: And my physical body is only my own.
  174.  
  175. Saten: The running long jump record for a middle school girl is only a bit past 6m, right?
  176. Saten: Isn't this more than that at the closest point?
  177.  
  178. Saten: There's no way I can make it.
  179.  
  180. SFX: Poke out
  181.  
  182. 14
  183.  
  184. SFX: Roarrr
  185.  
  186. SFX: Shiver
  187. Saten: If I fall the four stories to the ground...
  188. Saten: I'm dead, aren't I?
  189.  
  190. 15
  191.  
  192. Saten: Plus, I don't actually know Uiharu is even here.
  193. Saten: It might be best to leave this to Misaka-san or Shirai-san.
  194.  
  195. Saten: But...
  196. Saten: what if she really is captured here?
  197.  
  198. Saten: What if the long-range jammer keeps even Misaka-san from doing anything?
  199.  
  200. 16
  201.  
  202. Saten: This was my idea!!
  203.  
  204. Saten: And even if Misaka-san snuck in like this...
  205. Saten: she can't do any better than me without her powers.
  206.  
  207. Saten: The Level difference is no excuse!!
  208. Saten: A Level 0 like me might just be in the way...
  209.  
  210. Saten: but I can still make a difference if I'm prepared to put my life on the line!!
  211.  
  212. 17
  213.  
  214. Saten: I've stopped shaking.
  215.  
  216. SFX: Hoo
  217.  
  218. SFX: Tense...
  219.  
  220. Saten: I honestly don't know what justice really is.
  221.  
  222. 18
  223.  
  224. Saten: When I think about justice...
  225. Saten: Shirai-san is the first thing to come to mind.
  226.  
  227. Saten: She has powerful convictions she refuses to compromise on...
  228. Saten: and she acts on that belief.
  229.  
  230. Saten: Even if her tastes are a little weird.
  231.  
  232. Saten: Misaka-san is the same.
  233.  
  234. Saten: But...
  235.  
  236. Saten: Uiharu is a little different.
  237.  
  238. Saten: She looks up to justice...
  239. Saten: and wants to embody it herself.
  240.  
  241. 19
  242.  
  243. Saten: If they've captured her, it's so they can make her do something bad.
  244.  
  245. Saten: I can't let that happen.
  246.  
  247. Saten: She works so hard.
  248.  
  249. Saten: Gets herself into trouble.
  250.  
  251. Saten: And gets hurt.
  252.  
  253. Saten: But she still tries to do justice.
  254. Tessou: Stop that.
  255.  
  256. 20
  257.  
  258. SFX: Wham
  259.  
  260. Saten: I can't let someone...
  261. Saten: use her for evil!!
  262.  
  263. 21
  264.  
  265. Saten: It really wasn't...
  266.  
  267. Saten: far...
  268.  
  269. Saten: enough.
  270.  
  271. 22
  272.  
  273. SFX: Thud
  274. Robot: Beep?
  275.  
  276. Robot: Beep
  277. Robot: Beep
  278. SFX: Whirrr
  279.  
  280. Saten: But...
  281.  
  282. 23
  283.  
  284. Saten: As long as I can touch the opposite wall...
  285.  
  286. Saten: I'm A-OK!!!
  287.  
  288. 24
  289.  
  290. Saten: That scared me.
  291. SFX: Heartbeat heartbeat
  292.  
  293. Saten: These are the robots destroyed in the trial.
  294.  
  295. Saten: Are they storing the ones to be repaired?
  296.  
  297. 25

  304. Saten: Wait for me, Uiharu.
  305.  
  306. Saten: I'll break you out!!
  307.  
  308. Saten: F-for now, I should climb in a nearby window.
  309. Saten(small): My stomach hurts.
