  5. Anti-Skill: Do not leave your room yet.
  6.  
  7. Anti-Skill: We have finished downstairs.
  8. Kaibi: Take care of the one over there too.
  9. Voice: Ahh, ahh. What a disaster.
  10.  
  11. Kakine: A dark side agent cares about their team's living arrangements?
  12. Kakine: Trying to score extra points?
  13. Voice: Now, now. Be nice.
  14.  
  15. Kakine: So that guy's one of Academy City's Kiharas, right? What did the higher ups say?
  16.  
  17. Voice: They said it was an accident due to a miscommunication between teams.
  18. Voice: That means they hope to get something from his research.
  19.  
  20. Kakine: What?
  21. Voice: Don't get so upset.
  22. Voice: That also means it's only a hope.
  23. Voice: They'll call it even by overlooking whatever kind of retaliation you send his way.
  24.  
  25. 116
  26.  
  27. Voice: You and he are free to do as you like.
  28.  
  29. Kakine: Dammit. Abandoning us when it matters most, huh?
  30.  
  31. Yobou: That Kihara Souji guy is dangerous.
  32.  
  33. Yobou: But his methods felt thrown together at the last second.
  34. Yobou: He was using brainwashed DA Arouse members...
  35. Yobou: but that means he's acting alone and doesn't have his own team to work with.
  36.  
  37. Yobou: Not that many teams have a chance of winning a fight with School.
  38.  
  39. Yobou: Whatever he wants...
  40. Yobou: Academy City's higher ups see his experiments as something that might possibly show results. In fact...
  41. Yobou: Could his research provide something worth sacrificing Kakine-san for?
  42.

  44.  
  45. Souji: Hm, hmm.
  46. SFX: Type type
  47.  
  48. Souji: Hmm, hm.
  49. Souji: Hmmm.
  50.  
  51. Ringo: Ah.
  52. Ringo: Gh.
  53. SFX: Twitch
  54. SFX: Ksh
  55. SFX: Ksshh
  56.  
  57. Souji(outside): Hm, hmm♪
  58. Souji: And we're go.
  59. SFX: Type

  64.  
  65. Kakine: Hi.
  66. Souji: Hello, hello. You got here fast.
  67. Kakine: Not really.
  68.  
  69. Kakine: Because you "substituted" fake data in for everything from your position on the satellite maps to your package delivery records.
  70. Kakine: So my team had to split up.
  71.  
  72. Souji: Well, good work all the same.
  73. Souji: Still, you're just in time. I'm about to complete the specimen's tuning.
  74.  
  75. Souji: This experiment's gonna be a blast.
  76. Souji: My theory says she'll be able to reproduce Accelerator's power exactly.
  77.  
  78. Souji: Amata-san's been feeling blue since the original got himself injured, but this should cheer him up!
  79. Kakine: Sorry, but I really don't care.
  80.  
  81. Souji: Hm, that's mighty strange. I thought you were after data on Accelerator.
  82. Souji: Doesn't this give you what you want too?
  83.  
  84. 119
  85.  
  86. SFX: Step
  87.  
  88. Kakine: I'm looking for a person, not data.
  89.  
  90. Kakine: I'm here for Yuzuriha Ringo.
  91.  
  92. Souji: Oh, wow. Looks like we've got a knight in shining armor on our hands.
  93.  
  94. SFX: Grind grind
  95. SFX: Beeeep
  96.  
  97. Souji: Have at it.
  98.  
  99. Souji: Your princess awaits.
  100. SFX: Snap snap snap

  134. SFX: Jump
  135. SFX: Boom boom
  136.  
  137. 123
  138.  
  139. SFX: Clap clap clap
  140.  
  141. Souji: Ohh, it's just as I theorized, but seeing it live is so much more exciting!
  142.  
  143. SFX: Appear
  144. Souji: Is this how Amata-san felt, I wonder?
  145.  
  146. SFX: Mutter mutter
  147. DA: For justice.
  148. DA: For absolute justice.
  149.  
  150. Souji: Oh! But, but.
  151.  
  152. Souji: My experiment is against real, live Level 5, so maybe my version is better.
  153.  
  154. SFX: Fwoosh
  155.  
  156. 124
  157.  
  158. SFX: Slice
  159.  
  160. SFX: Stab
  161. DA: Ugh.
  162.  
  163. Souji: Wow, an attack that only pierces people? That's nasty.
  164. SFX: Lean
  165.  
  166. Souji: But that just means I've gotta substitute my shield for human flesh.
  167.  
  168. Souji: Taking out the enemy leader.
  169. Souji: It's so standard I'd call it cliche, but you just had to take a stab at it, didn't you?
  170.  
  171. 125
  172.  
  173. SFX: Boom
  174.  
  175. SFX: Roar

  177. SFX: Zwoosh
  178.  
  179. SFX: Gween
  180.  
  181. SFX: Roar
  182.  
  183. Kakine: She deflected it.
  184.  
  185. 126
  186.  
  187. Souji: Yeah, that ain't gonna work. You can't hold back or take things slow against her.
  188.  
  189. Kakine: I wasn't trying to hold back.
  190.  
  191. SFX: Rip
  192.

  213. SFX: Bwoosh
  214.  
  215. Kakine: I'm not bothering with every little thing!
  216.  
  217. Souji: Oh, he's way up there.
  218. Souji: Hm?
  219.  
  220. 128
  221.  
  222. Kakine: Be crushed.
  223. SFX: Wave
  224.  
  225. SFX: Thoom
  226.  
  227. Souji: Oh, wow. What is this!?
  228. Souji: It's like a giant foot on my back.
  229.  
  230. Souji: Fascinating!
  231.  
  232. SFX: Appear
  233. SFX: Strain
  234.  
  235. 129
  236.  
  237. Kakine: She's fast.
  238. SFX: Pull back
  239. Kakine: What's with her?
  240.  
  241. SFX: Wham
  242.  
  243. SFX: Strain strain
  244. Kakine: It's like she doesn't care if she damages her own body.
  245.  
  246. SFX: Strain
  247.  
  248. SFX: Boom
  249.  
  250. SFX: Alight
  251. SFX: Crash
  252.  
  253. Kakine: The Gs damage her as she uses her power to accelerate herself.
  254.  
  255. Kakine: That wouldn't happen with the real #1.
  256. SFX: Pant pant
  257. SFX: Wobble
  258.  
  259. Souji: What? Worried about Ringo-san's body?
  260. Souji: She'll be fine.
  261.  
  262. 130
  263.  
  264. Souji: I originally worked in cyborg tech.
  265.  
  266. SFX: Clack
  267. Souji: So I can give her damaged body some substitutes afterwards.
  268.  
  269. SFX: Bam crash
  270.  
  271. SFX: Boom
  272.  
  273. SFX: Fly
  274. Kakine: With her power, she could keep forcing herself to move even if I crushed her arms and legs.
  275.  
  276. Kakine: How can I stop her without killing her?
  277. SFX: Boom boom boom
  278.  
  279. 131
  280.  
  281. Kakine: Damn, it's never going to end.
  282.  
  283. SFX: Vanish
  284.  
  285. SFX: Appear
  286. SFX: Strain strain
  287.  
  288. SFX: Reach out
  289.  
  290. SFX: Wham
  291.  
  292. 132
  293.  
  294. SFX: Boom
  295.  
  296. Kakine: Gwah!
  297.  
  298. SFX: Crash
  299.  
  300. 133
  301.  
  302. Ringo: I can't hear anything.
  303.  
  304. SFX: Fade
  305. Ringo: Why?
  306.  
  307. Ringo: Things happen right in front of me, but I can't do anything about them.
  308.  
  309. Ringo: I can't take it anymore.
  310.  
  311. Ringo: Save me, Kakine.
  312. SFX: Squeeze
  313.  
  314. Ringo: Kill me.
  315.  
  316. 134
  317.  
  318. Souji: Oh, dearie me. Maybe she overdid that one.
  319. Souji(small): This could be bad.
  320.  
  321. SFX: Twitch
  322.  
  323. Kakine: That hit told me all I need to know.
  324.  
  325. Kakine: She's pretty good as a substitute for Accelerator.
  326.  
  327. Souji: I am honored you think so.
  328. Kakine: But only as a substitute.
  329.  
  330. Kakine: She isn't reproducing the Accelerator data I want.
  331. SFX: Brush
  332.  
  333. 135
  334.  
  335. Kakine: There's other research into temporarily boosting powers beyond the esper's control.
  336. SFX: Pat pat
  337. Kakine: And even with the cyborg substitute parts, the burden on her body makes it unlikely she can fight for all that long.
  338.  
  339. Souji: I already told you she was a substitute. So she inherits the same manufacturing problems the original has.
  340.  
  341. Kakine: Fair enough. I guess you don't want me picking apart your project when the research is still ongoing.
  342. Kakine: But I do think you've done a decent job here.
  343. SFX: Tug
  344.  
  345. Kakine: You temporarily got her fighting evenly with a Level 5.
  346. SFX: Sway sway
  347. Kakine: But Level isn't just a measure of fighting strength or power output.
  348.  
  349. Kakine: It's a combination of various sorts of potential...
  350. Kakine: like technological growth or application to other fields.
  351.  
  352. Kakine: But that potential is harder to judge than fighting strength.
  353. Kakine: You have to look to the future of something that's still undergoing research, after all.
  354.  
  355. Souji: What's your point?
  356.  
  357. 136
  358.  
  359. Kakine: Do you...
  360. Kakine: really understand the value of a Level 5?
  361.  
  362. Souji: Kh.
  363.  
  364. Kakine: You only view us through the lens of what you can understand...
  365. Kakine: and tried to make a substitute using only the technology you knew.
  366.  
  367. Kakine: I'll show you the truth.
  368.  
  369. Kakine: Can your minds...
  370. Kakine: keep up with my Dark Matter?
  371. SFX: Fwoosh
  372.  
  373. SFX: Bright
  374.  
  375. 137
  376.  
  377. Kakine: My Dark Matter is a type of matter that does not exist in this world.
  378.  
  379. Kakine: The natural world...no.
  380. Kakine: Even this small space contains countless forms of matter and they create their phenomena based on various laws.
  381.  
  382. Kakine: But if I add in the new form of matter called Dark Matter...
  383.  
  384. SFX: Distort
  385.  
  386. SFX: Flash flash
  387. SFX: Burn
  388.  
  389. Souji: If he adds in the new form of matter called Dark Matter...
  390.  
  391. Souji: each and every phenomenon will result in something entirely different from normal.
  392. SFX: Freeze freeze
  393.  
  394. 138
  395.  
  396. SFX: Bubble bubble
  397. DA: Eek!
  398. DA: Ohhhh!
  399. SFX: Thud
  400. Souji: Thus creating a space full of surprises for ordinary people.
  401.  
  402. Kakine: However.
  403.  
  404. Souji: The Dark Matter's user is an exception.
  405.  
  406. Kakine: I'm calculating what will happen in this space as I create it.
  407.  
  408. Souji: So this is a demonstration of the #2's possibilities.
  409.  
  410. Kakine: If you truly understand Level 5s...
  411.  
  412. Kakine: then comprehend these possibilities.
  413.  
  414. SFX: Flash
  415.  
  416. 139
  417.  
  418. Souji: Wow.
  419. Souji: Incredible!!
  420.  
  421. Souji: 1000...1500...1800.
  422. Souji: So many phenomena are unfolding at once!
  423.  
  424. Souji: I understand it! I do!
  425. Souji: This is the world as a Level 5 sees it!!
  426.  
  427. Souji: 2000...2200...2700...
  428. SFX: Spark spark
  429.  
  430. SFX: Burn
  431. Souji: It's still going.
  432. Souji: The possibilities continue to expand!
  433. Souji: 3000.
  434.  
  435. SFX: Sweat sweat
  436. Souji: 3300.
  437. Souji(thought): Yes, and...
  438. Souji(thought): This is...
  439.  
  440. Souji(thought): My...
  441. SFX: Drip
  442. SFX: Freeze
  443.  
  444. 140
  445.  
  446. Souji(thought): Limit.
  447. SFX: Drip drip
  448. SFX: Wobble
  449. Souji(small): Hee hee hee
  450. Souji: Goddammit.
  451.  
  452. SFX: Fall
  453.  
  454. SFX: Thud
  455.  
  456. SFX: Crunch crunch
  457.  
  458. SFX: Flash
  459. Kakine: Hey.
  460.  
  461. SFX: Look up
  462.  
  463. Ringo: Why?
  464.  
  465. 141
  466.  
  467. Kakine: They say the heart...no.
  468. Kakine: The brain's electrical signals can be influenced by sound and light, so I copied that.
  469. Kakine: Maybe you couldn't see or hear anything that was going on...
  470.  
  471. Kakine: but it could reach you through my Dark Matter.
  472.  
  473. Kakine: Still, using this power is a pain.
  474.  
  475. SFX: Grab
  476.  
  477. Kakine: So if you've got something to say, do it like normal.
  478.  
  479. 142
  480.  
  481. 143
  482.  
  483. SFX: Gasp
  484.  
  485. Kakine: Is your body okay?
  486.  
  487. Ringo: Kakine!
  488. Ringo: Um.
  489. Ringo: Sorry.
  490. Ringo: I...
  491.  
  492. Ringo: I'm hungry!
  493.  
  494. Kakine: Pff
  495.  
  496. 144
  497.  
  498. Kakine: Heh heh heh ha ha ha ha!
  499. SFX: Growwwl
  500.  
  501. Kakine: Way to ruin the mood.
  502. Ringo: Meat is fine, but I want a galette.
  503.  
  504. Kakine: Ha ha ha ha
  505.  
  506. Kaibi: I thought he'd gotten the better of us, but looks like you took care of it.
  507. Kaibi(outside): What even was all this?
  508. Yobou: You made a mess of things again.
  509. Kakine: Only half of it was me. She did-
  510.  
  511. SFX: Bang
  512.  
  513. SFX: Fall
  514.  
  515. 145
  516.  
  517. Kakine: People call you stubborn, don't they?
  518. Kakine: Give up already.
  519.  
  520. Souji: Gh.
  521. Souji: Ah.
  522. SFX: Wobble wobble
  523. Souji: N-no, I'm not giving up!
  524. Souji: I'm a researcher, so I never give up!
  525.  
  526. SFX: Bang bang
  527. Souji: How do those wings relate to your Dark Matter power?
  528. Souji: My bullets bounce right off them!
  529.  
  530. Souji: Show me Dark Matter again! I'll understand it this time.
  531. SFX: Pant pant
  532. Souji: I'll keep trying until I do.
  533.  
  534. Souji: Oh, how exciting! What fun!!
  535. SFX: Bang bang
  536. Kakine: Sigh. Okay, fine.
  537.  
  538. Kakine: I'll show it to you again.
  539. SFX: Step
  540. Kakine: But just seeing it would be boring, right?
  541.  
  542. Kakine: I'll let you truly experience it this time.
  543.  
  544. 146
  545.  
  546. SFX: Slice
  547.  
  548. SFX: Pour
  549.  
  550. Souji: So fast!
  551. Souji: A human turned to sand!!
  552.  
  553. Souji: Your power is utter nonsense!
  554. Souji: Is this sand my cells!?
  555.  
  556. Souji: An analysis...
  557. SFX: Pour pour
  558. Souji: of my...
  559. Souji: composition...

  564. SFX: Blow
  565.  
  566. Ringo: What happened?
  567.  
  568. SFX: Rub rub
  569.  
  570. Kakine: The problems chasing you are gone.
  571.  
  572. 148
  573.  
  574. SFX: Yawn
  575.  
  576. Kaibi: You dealt with him, so let's withdraw already.
  577. Kakine: First, we need the Accelerator data that Kihara Souji put in Ringo.
  578. Kakine: Although it won't be enough to make up for all this.
  579.  
  580. Yobou: Found the data.
  581.  
  582. SFX: Pop
  583.  
  584. SFX: Pop pop
  585. Kakine: Hm, that's far from complete. Oh?
  586. SFX: Pop
  587.  
  588. Kakine: A self-destruct program?

  597.  
  598. Kakine: Ringo!
  599.  
  600. Kaibi: What happened!?
  601. SFX: Focus
  602.  
  603. Yobou: Her organs are sent...
  604. Yobou: a shut down command under certain circumstances?
  605.  
  606. Yobou: Odd. This part doesn't fit with the rest.
  607. Yobou: The descriptions are entirely different from Kihara Souji's base program!
  608.  
  609. Kakine: Dammit all! Hey, wake up!
  610. Kakine: Ringo!!
  611.  
  612. 150
  613.  
  614. Kakine: Ringo!!
  615.  
  616. Kakine: Dammit.
  617.  
  618. Ringo: Kakine.
  619.  
  620. Ringo: Can you do something...for me?
  621. Kakine: Don't act like you're about to die.
  622.  
  623. Kakine: Hey, can't you cancel the shut down command!?
  624. Yobou: Probably not with the equipment we have here!
  625.  
  626. SFX: Clutch
  627. Ringo: Kakine...please.
  628.  
  629. Ringo: I want you...
  630. Ringo: to remember me.
  631.  
  632. 151
  633.  
  634. Ringo: No one...remembered Tomoka's name.
  635.  
  636. Ringo: Ryuugou Tomoka...lived there.
  637. Ringo: I still...
  638. Ringo: remember her.
  639.  
  640. Ringo: I killed her...
  641. Ringo: so I remember.
  642. Ringo: So...
  643.  
  644. SFX: Touch
  645.  
  646. Ringo: I remember Tomoka...
  647. Ringo: so you remember me.
  648.  
  649. Kakine: Is that your idea of salvation?
  650. SFX: Clench
  651.  
  652. 152
  653.  
  654. SFX: Let go
  655. Kakine: To hell with that.
  656.  
  657. Kakine: I already remember everything about you.
  658.  
  659. Ringo: Really? Even Tomoka?
  660.  
  661. Kakine: Don't underestimate the Level 5 brain.
  662.  
  663. Researcher: You were implanted with a part of the #1.
  664.  
  665. Researcher: But this is an image of the #2.
  666. Researcher: His thought patterns and calculation methods are of course entirely different.
  667.  
  668. 153
  669.  
  670. Ringo: Wow! Wow!
  671. Ringo: That's so pretty!
  672. SFX: Point
  673. Tomoka: Eh? Y-yeah.
  674. SFX: Jump
  675.  
  676. Tomoka: It's amazing he can grow wings like that.
  677. Tomoka: Just like an angel.
  678.  
  679. Ringo: An angel?
  680. Tomoka: Um, they're like messengers of god maybe?
  681. Tomoka: I'm not really sure, but I think they go around saving people.
  682.  
  683. Ringo: An angel, wow.
  684. Tomoka: Those wings are a surprise. But he is the #2.
  685. Ringo: The #2.
  686.  
  687. Tomoka: Weren't you listening? That's the #2 Level 5.
  688. Tomoka: Kakine Teitoku.
  689.  
  690. Ringo: Kakine...Teitoku.
  691.  
  692. 154
  693.  
  694. Ringo: I wish I had his thoughts...
  695. Ringo: implanted in me.
  696.  
  697. Ringo: Remember that...
  698. Ringo: I wanted...yours.
  699. Kakine: Ringo!
  700. Kakine: Hey, Ringo!
  701.  
  702. SFX: Touch
  703. Ringo: Your wings...
  704. Ringo: are...
  705. Ringo: so pretty.
  706.  
  707. 155
  708.  
  709. SFX: Thunk
  710.  
  711. SFX: Squeeze
  712. Kakine: Goddamn it all.
  713.  
  714. Kakine: Don't look so damn satisfied!
  715.  
  716. 156
  717.  
  718. SFX: Type type
  719. Kuroyoru: Oh, that's good. This place hasn't been touched yet.
  720.  
  721. Kuroyoru: Man, School and the Hound Dogs were all over the other bases already.
  722. Kuroyoru: I was only a victim caught up in it all, so they really should have left a consolation prize for me.
  723. Kuroyoru: Oh!
  724.  
  725. Kuroyoru: Hmm, Kihara Souji-kun started out in medicine making artificial organs.
  726. Kuroyoru: Got anything more than that?
  727.  
  728. SFX: Pop pop
  729.  
  730. SFX: Type
  731.  
  732. 157
  733.  
  734. SFX: Rumble
  735.  
  736. Kuroyoru: Oh, what have we here?
  737. Kuroyoru: Hmm.
  738. Kuroyoru: I see.
  739.  
  740. Kuroyoru: These look pretty nice.
  741.  
  742. Yobou: I couldn't find any other code resembling the self-destruct program.
  743.  
  744. Yobou: Since School's intel network and authority turned up exactly zero leads...
  745.  
  746. 158
  747.  
  748. Kaibi: This was city leadership. And at a very high level too.
  749. Yobou: Correct.
  750.  
  751. Yobou: But I did figure out when it was added into Kihara Souji's program.
  752. Yobou: It was just as we had secured Yuzuriha Ringo.
  753.  
  754. Kakine: So I was the target, not her.
  755.  
  756. Kaibi: But why?
  757.  
  758. Kakine: Who knows. Probably just one of many plans.
  759.  
  760. Rakko: What's been going on recently?
  761. Yobou: I'll explain later.
  762. Kakine: For him anyway.
  763.  
  764. Kakine: But.
  765.  
  766. 159
  767.  
  768. Kakine: I refuse to accept that...
  769. Kakine: our lot in life is to have everything taken from us.
  770.  
  771. Kakine: I'll show you first-hand that your rules...
  772. Kakine: don't apply to me.
