  12. Mikoto: I'd noticed she was only using one arm.
  13. Mikoto(outside): I just thought she was holding back.
  14.  
  15. Kimi: Tch.
  16. SFX: Throb

  28. Mikoto: Is that...?
  29.  
  30. Uiharu: I will use this station.
  31.  
  32. Suzu: If knowledge of Kimi's power...
  33. Suzu: is what led to Honoka's fate, should we really be looking into it?
  34. Suzu: If word gets out...

  37.  
  38. Suzu(thought): No, I need to trust her.
  39. Suzu: Um, I couldn't break the encryption, but I could show you what patterns I've already tried.
  40. SFX: Type type
  41.  
  42. Uiharu: I appreciate the offer, but I've already broken it.
  43. Suzu: Oh, I see.

  47. Text:
  48. *March 9
  49. The System Scan failed to detect a power in Shundan Kimi. She has been designated a Level 0.
  50.  
  51. *September 26
  52. An odd AIM Diffusion Field was detected, suggesting we have simply failed to detect Shundan Kimi's power.
  53.  
  54. *November 2
  55. The creation of a black hole was detected from the gravity waves at Sun-Earth Lagrange Point L5. It vanished after 0.0000025 seconds. A change in Shundan Kimi's AIM Diffusion Field was confirmed for that same period of time.
  56.  
  57. *December 5
  58. A connection between Shundan Kimi's power and the black hole's creation has been accepted. This suggests she could be the theoretical being known as a Holistic Esper.
  59.  
  60. *January 4
  61. We succeeded in reproducing Shundan Kimi's AIM Diffusion Field. Based on the scale of the grown field, we estimate a black hole appeared in the Orochi Galaxy approximately 12 billion light years away.
  62.

  65. Text:
  66. *January 31
  67. We have submitted for an update to Shundan Kimi's Parameter List entry saying she will become the 9th Level 5.
  68.  
  69. *February 7
  70. We have begun investigating the creation of a wormhole supported by Shundan Kimi's power. This could solve the entire world's energy problem. However...
  71.  
  72. SFX: Scrape scrape scrape
  73.  
  74. Text: This power is extremely delicate and it is difficult to control the size and location of the black hole.
  75. In the worst case, the Earth and the entire Solar System could be destroyed, so this experiment requires the utmost care.
  76.  
  77. SFX: Steam
  78. Mikoto: That was close.
  79. Mikoto: I can divert the electricity, but the heat nearly roasted me.
  80.  
  81. Mikoto: But if she keeps shooting like that...
  82. Mikoto: she'll run out of energy pretty quick.
  83.  
  84. Mikoto: Hopefully, anyway.
  85.  
  86. 06
  87.  
  88. Suzu: A...black hole?
  89.  
  90. Suzu: Are you saying that's Kimi's power?
  91. Uiharu: She apparently has the power to create a black hole somewhere in the universe.
  92.  
  93. Uiharu: And...
  94.  
  95. Uiharu: Setting aside this odd phrasing where they seem to assume in advance she would become a Level 5...
  96. Uiharu: This says developing her power could possibly create a connection with a black hole billions of light years away...
  97.  
  98. 07
  99.  
  100. Uiharu: but it could also create a black hole close the Earth.
  101.  
  102. Uiharu: The benefit made some of the researchers wanted to continue the research while the risk made others want to eliminate her.
  103.  
  104. SFX: Beep beep
  105.  
  106. Uiharu: The medical room's alarm!?
  107. SFX: Beep beep
  108.  
  109. Uiharu: There's no time.
  110.  
  111. Uiharu: But what does that power have to do with Saten-san's condition?
  112.  
  113. 08
  114.  
  115. Suzu: Kimi said she had a dragon inside her.
  116.  
  117. Suzu: I thought it was a metaphor at the time, but now...
  118.  
  119. Uiharu: Um! Can I operate the long-range AIM jammers from here?
  120. Suzu: Eh? Yes.
  121.  
  122. SFX: Huff puff
  123.  
  124. Kimi: Huh?
  125. SFX: Twitch
  126.  
  127. 09
  128.  
  129. Kimi: The AIM Jammers?
  130. Kimi: That Uiharu girl.
  131.  
  132. Kimi: What a disappointment.
  133. Kimi: I was hoping she would hack a military satellite and destroy the entire facility.
  134.  
  135. Kimi: Besides, the dragon has already left my control.
  136. SFX: Gather gather
  137. Kimi: The AIM Jammers are not enough...
  138.  
  139. Kimi: to stop it now.
  140.  
  141. 10
  142.  
  143. Uiharu: I knew it.
  144.  
  145. Uiharu: It's a different wavelength.
  146. Uiharu: That dragon is separate from her power.
  147.  
  148. Suzu: Then what is it?
  149.  
  150. Mikoto: Where do you get all this energy from!?
  151.  
  152. 11
  153.  
  154. SFX: Rumble
  155. SFX: Boom crash
  156. Mikoto: She isn't connected to HIM.
  157. Mikoto: So how can she use this power so much?
  158.  
  159. Uiharu: Could the black hole be the energy source?
  160.  
  161. Uiharu: Black holes tear part anything that moves too close and emit jets of ultra-high energy.
  162.  
  163. Uiharu: That energy would be too much for any individual to handle...
  164. Uiharu: but what if the dragon is leeching off of that somehow?
  165.  
  166. 12
  167.  
  168. Uiharu: That would explain why the dragon was drawn to her.
  169.  
  170. Suzu: But in that case...
  171.  
  172. Uiharu: We're fighting against a black hole unless we can separate the dragon from Shundan Kimi.
  173.  
  174. SFX: Beep beep beep beep
  175.  
  176. 13
  177.  
  178. Uiharu: Not even Misaka-san can do that.
  179. SFX: Beep beep beep
  180.  
  181. Uiharu: What power could possibly do that?
  182.  
  183. Uiharu: Saten-san.
  184.  
  185. Uiharu: What esper could do it?
  186.  
  187. SFX: Clench
  188. Uiharu: No one like that exists.
  189.  
  190. 14
  191.  
  192. Uiharu: If it doesn't exist...
  193. Uiharu: we just have to create it.
  194.  
  195. SFX: Type type type
  196.  
  197. SFX: Type type type type
  198.  
  199. Kimi: Those mechanical eyes...
  200. Kimi: have left me.
  201.  
  202. 15
  203.  
  204. Kimi: All the long-range AIM jammers...
  205. Kimi: are directed at the guard building?
  206.  
  207. SFX: Type type type type type type type type type type type type type

  211. Text: What has happened to Uiharu!?
