Saten: “Uah, today’s quite hot as well. I’m sweating just from the time it took to get here.”

Mikoto: “With how strong the sun was on the way here, it may have been necessary to bring a hat or a parasol.”

Saten: “And yet, something like this is a bit fresh.”

Mikoto: “‘Fresh’, isn’t this the same family restaurant as always?”

Saten: “A situation where I’m with Misaka-san and it’s just the two of us, doesn’t that not happen very often?”

Mikoto: “Is that so? I don’t really feel that’s the case.”

Saten: “I don’t remember it happening much—”

Mikoto: “Well fresh is nice I suppose. But there isn’t much to talk about when it’s just the two of us.”

Saten: “Now that you mention it, they made a new sport club in front of the station!!”

Topic ‘Sports Club’ Acquired

Mikoto: “Hee, that’s right. What kind of equipment is there?”

Saten: “Well, I don’t know since I haven’t actually been there. ……Uwaah, that topic didn’t pan out after all!”

Mikoto: “It certainly didn’t pan out∼”

ULJS00354_00005.jpg

Saten: “Hmm. It really looks like Uiharu isn’t coming.”

Mikoto: “Kuroko isn’t answering her cell either.”

Saten: “For even Shirai-san not to, could it be something related to Judgement?”

Mikoto: “I feel like thanking them for putting in such efforts in this shitty heat. But for them to be so busy they don’t even contact us, I wonder just what could they be doing.”

Saten: “Still, since it’s summer vacation wouldn’t several of groups have been cutting loose?”

Mikoto: “Speaking of which Antiskill should be taking care of it then. Judgement’s jurisdiction should have originally been limited to the schools.”

Saten: “Ahh, that’s for sure.”

Mikoto: “Isn’t Kuroko always being forced to write written apologies for having taken action outside of school?”

Saten: “……To get reprimanded for having resolved the incident, that feels somewhat pitiful.”

ULJS00354_00006.jpg

Kongou: “Somehow you guys seem quite subdued.”

ULJS00354_00007.jpg

Mikoto: “Ah……Kongou-san.”

Kongou: “Good day, Misaka-san.”

Saten: “Ah, hello.”

Mikoto: “That’s right. Since I can’t get ahold of Kuroko, Kongou-san, is there something——I guess you wouldn’t know.”

Kongou: “Oh my, why would you arbitrarily decide such a thing?”

Mikoto: “Because, you two shouldn’t have the kind of relationship where you would be in contact with each other.”

Kongou: “Quite so.”

Mikoto: “I know, right?”

Kongou: “Relating to that point, though it is exactly as Misaka-san says……”

Kongou: “Even without any contact from her, isn’t there a way to know of Shirai-san’s actions?”

Kongou: “On my way here, I happened to catch sight of Shirai-san dashing off with another member of Judgement.”

Kongou: “I don’t know what it was, but based on her appearance, she isn’t immediately coming here.”

Mikoto: “I see, so that’s how it was.”

Kongou: “By the way, if that seat’s empty, do you mind if we share a table?”

Mikoto: “Aren’t you meeting up with somebody Kongou-san?”

Kongou: “Actually I had come here because I felt like reading by myself.”

Kongou: “But since I see that Misaka-san is here and has some free time, I’m offering to accompany you.”

Saten: “In other words, Kongou-san also has some free time.”

ULJS00354_00008.jpg

Kongou: “Well then if you’ll excuse me.”

Saten: “Ah, that’s Shirai-san’s seat……”

Kongou: “A person whose not here doesn’t get a seat right? Am I wrong?”

Mikoto: “It’s not especially the case that Kuroko always sits there, so whatever.”

Mikoto: “Feel free, Kongou-san.”

Kongou: “So, what were you talking about?”

Kongou: “Please pay me no mind and continue the conversation.”

Saten: “……Conversation, what were we conversing about? Misaka-san?”

Mikoto: “We were talking about how ridiculously hot it is today.”

Kongou: “I concur. With the excessive rays of the sun plus the high level of humidity, it’s been causing me trouble when it comes to styling my hair.”

Mikoto: “If it’s you Kongou-san, creating wind to cool it……is something like that impossible?”

Kongou: “If Misaka-san wishes, I can offer to cool things down right now.”

Kongou: “Doing such with an ability is something that’s impossible for Shirai-san.”

Saten: “Her rivalry with Shirai-san is quite stringent huh.”

Mikoto: “Somewhat……”

Kongou: “Is there something the matter?”

Mikoto: “Uh-uh, it’s nothing at all.”

Kongou: “Good grief, due to this heat even Ekaterina-chan isn’t eating, that’s how on edge she is……”

Mikoto: “Huh. Snakes can’t regulate their own body temperature, so I feel a bit sorry for her in this heat.”

Mikoto: “Speaking of being on edge”

Saten: “What what, what is it?”

Kongou: “Oh my, is this a new conversation topic?”

Mikoto: “How do I put it……isn’t the state of the town a bit strange?”

Mikoto: “It’s not like Kongou-san’s pet, but doesn’t it seem like people are on edge?”

Saten: “Oh, so you also think so Misaka-san?”

Mikoto: “Also?”

Saten: “For me as well, it’s been weighing on mind just a little bit.”

Saten: “However I feel that there’s no specific foundation behind it.”

Saten: “But it Misaka-san has been thinking the same thing, surely the atmosphere is quite strange.”

Mikoto: “Hmm—……”

Saten: “Shirai-san and Uiharu have been busy with Judgement and the like. It could be that’s due to there being something strange about the town’s situation.”

Saten: “Ooh, perchance, couldn’t this be a premonition of some major incident?”

Mikoto: “Why do you seem to find that enjoyable……”

Saten: “Because it is!”

Saten: “It’s something for which the city’s agencies for maintaining public order have all begun taking action together!”

Saten: “The nature of it is kept hidden from us ordinary civilians!!”

Mikoto: “We don’t know that it’s being hidden.”

Saten: “Then why isn’t Uiharu answering her cell? Even Shirai-san is occupied.”

Mikoto: “It’s simply that they don’t have any spare time to answer the phone since they’re so busy with work for Judgement.”

Mikoto: “Didn’t Kongou-san say as much?”

Saten: “Tsk-tsk-tsk, you’re quite naive, Misaka-san.”

Saten: “They are involved in a major incident, one which they mustn’t let the two of us who are ordinary civilians find out about.”

Mikoto: “Ha……”

Kongou: “Certainly as Misaka-san was saying, the city’s atmosphere has had the impression of being quite touchy.”

Saten: “Right, the understanding person understands it after all.”

Kongou: “Well since an ordinary person like yourself notices as much.”

Saten: “Oh, Kongou-san replied to my conversation!”

Mikoto: “Though I’m also an ordinary person.”

Kongou: “That’s why I said it that way.”

Kongou: “Since you who are ordinary people have felt it, it’s certainly possible that something is occurring.”

Mikoto: “Kongou-san, do you know something?”

Kongou: “Not really, I’m not aware of exactly what is occurring.”

Kongou: “Nevertheless, there’s no need to bear such anxiety.”

Kongou: “Since Shirai-san isn’t here, shall I offer to resolve everything?”

Kongou: “Well, unlike Shirai-san, I cannot cling to you always wherever you go, Misaka-san.”

Mikoto: “Is my image really as always being together with Kuroko like that?”

Kongou & Saten: “It is.”

Mikoto: “Come on, you two didn’t have to overlap your voice……hmm∼, so it’s like that.”

Saten: “However, this has become even more suspicious.”

Mikoto: “Eh? What has?”

Saten: “The strange city atmosphere we were talking about!”

Saten: “It’s no lie that it’s some kind of interesting event, like a UFO crash!! Right right!!”

Mikoto: “S-Saten-san? Aren’t you leaping to conclusions a bit?”

Kongou: “Indeed. UFOs and the like are unscientific.”

Saten: “What are you saying!?”

Saten: “Since they actually exist and use some kind of force to fly in the air, then they’re scientific!”

Kongou: “They actually exist?”

Mikoto: “Who knows……”

Saten: “The universe is vast!”

Saten: “There may even be planets where the laws of physics here on Earth don’t apply!!”

Mikoto: “I’m sorry to say this, but the laws themselves are the same everywhere.”

Kongou: “Just so.”

Saten: “That could be so for the science of Earth, but if they’re unknown lifeforms their science may possibly be different!”

Mikoto: “About that……I do understand that there are events that the current laws of science can’t explain.”

Kongou: “Indeed, just so.”

Mikoto: “Kongou-san, you’re agreeing with both sides.”

Kongou: “I’m just following along with you, Misaka-san.”

Mikoto: “Haa……”

Saten: “So if we agree, then it’s that isn’t it? Isn’t it time for the thing we regularly do every time?”

Mikoto: “That……huh.”

Kongou: “What is ‘that’?”

Mikoto: “I-It’s nothing important.”

Mikoto: (If even Kongou-san participates, won’t this get even more complicated?)

Saten: “Let’s investigate Misaka-san!! By our hands shall the mysteries of Academy City be elucidated!!”

Saten: “And then we’ll receive the miraculous weapons of the space aliens!!”

Mikoto: “Eeh—……. Even with it being this hot out……?”

Saten: “Let’s do it, by any and all means!”

Uses phone.

Saten: “Look! Just as I thought! Look at this, Misaka-san! This traffic information, don’t you think this is strange?”

Saten: “Not only is there traffic, but there are also areas which have been blocked off by traffic, isn’t that strange? No, it absolutely is strange!”

Mikoto: “Eh? Eh? Traffic information? Blockades? Saten-san, what’s with you all of a sudden?”

Saten: “It’s fine isn’t it? Here in Academy City, places have appeared that nobody can enter!”

Saten: “It’s 30,000% suspicious!”

Saten: “It’s not at all an exaggeration to say this is perfect for UFO landings!”

Mikoto: “I-I wonder about that, ahahahaha……”

Mikoto: (Putting UFOs and space aliens aside, it’s possible that some kind of incident is occurring……)

Mikoto: (However, that doesn’t make it necessary for us to explicitly stick our noses where they don’t belong……)

Saten: “Misaka-san, you don’t have any interest in unknown technology?”

Mikoto: “It’s not that I’m not interested.”

Saten: “If that’s the case then there’s nothing to worry about, is there?”

 

CHATTIN’!!

Kongou: “Before unknown technology, shouldn’t we first begin by studying technology that modern day science can explain?”

Saten: “Nono, isn’t something like that lacking in romance?”

Mikoto: “Romance huh.”

Saten: “Romance indeed. And romance means outer space! And outer space means Saturn!”

Kongou: “……How did you get to that?”

 

Saten: “In other words Romance=Saturn!Click here to activate interrupt. Otherwise continue reading.

Mikoto: “Well, it’s not that I don’t understand it to some degree—”

Saten: “I know right, as expected of Misaka-san! After all, doesn’t that guy have rings attached? Doesn’t that give it something of a special feeling?”

Mikoto: “‘That guy’ you say……”

Saten: “There ought to be a reason of some kind for that.”

 

Saten:”A reason it must have rings attached.

Saten: “Perhaps, it could be that that guy can’t swim—”

Kongou: “……I very much wish to confirm this, but we are talking about Saturn right?”

Saten: “That’s right, why? Those rings, they could be like a swim ring.”

Kongou: “Isn’t there no gravity in outer space? Something like a swimming ring would be unnecessary.”

Saten: “A spaceship…. In other words since it’s like a ship shouldn’t there be an ocean?”

Kongou: “Ahh, I get it.”

Mikoto: “Ahaha. Kongou-san, Kongou-san”

Kongou: “Hah, for me of all people got dragged in the other party’s pace.”

Saten: “Having said that, Misaka-san, Kongou-san, shall we go swimming after this?”

Mikoto: “Eh!? What? Was that what we were just talking about!?”

Kongou: “Misaka-san, can we be sure this person alright?”

Saten: “Yah—, when I thought about how the rings of Saturn are similar to a swim ring, I kind of felt like swimming.”

Mikoto: “But I haven’t prepared any kind of swimsuit.”

Saten: “Hou, well then let’s go shopping for swimsuits then! Right now, Seventh Mist is having a sale.”

Mikoto: “It’s fine since I have free time now but……how about you Kongou-san?”

Kongou: “I will politely decline. Those sorts of cheap swimsuits don’t match my skin.”

Saten: “Ehh, that’s too bad.”

Mikoto: “Certainly, Kongou-san impression doesn’t fit with sales. I’m at fault for forcibly inviting you.”

Kongou: “Please don’t mind me and have a good day.”

Saten: “Well then, how about the two of us get going, Misaka-san. We’re shopping at Seventh Mist!”

Mikoto: “Reasons huh……”

Kongou: “There isn’t any romance in Saturn. It’s just a planet. Even it’s rings, it’s been established that those are pieces of ice on the scale of a few meter to a few centimeters across. Don’t you think there’s no room in there to interpose something like romance?”

Mikoto: “Well, it’s as Kongou-san said.”

Continue below

Saten: “To start with let’s begin examining to find proof of this!”

Kongou: Even if it’s a planet in the solar system, it isn’t a place that can be reached by a satellite probe. In other words, what you just spoke is something that we already know everything about. Isn’t there no place to interpose romance?

Continue below


Saten: “What’s this—? The two of you aren’t interested in things like space and UFO? Well then I guess there’s no other way.”

Mikoto: “By no other way, you mean you have given up?”

Saten: “I’ll just investigate it on my own. And then I’ll send you a shock photo that’ll knock you off your feet!”

Saten: “You unknown technology, prepare yourself to be photographed!! YAHOO!!!!!!”

Topic ‘Unknown Technology’ Acquired

Mikoto: “Putting aside UFOs, I am concerned with how busy Judgement is.”

Kongou: “Even considering the roadblocks that have been established throughout Academy City, we don’t actually know the reason for them.”

Mikoto: “How about we investigate the cause of the uneasy atmosphere in Academy City at the very least.”

Saten: “At the very least? Even though there’s a terrible hidden truth behind it!”

Mikoto: “Wait a minute, calm down, Saten-san.”

Saten: “It’s futile so to try and convince me, it’s my mission to expose the truth to the light of day!”

Mikoto: “How did it become like this……”

Saten: “For that reason, let’s investigate this mystery!”

Mikoto: “Hold it, wait wait!! Since I’m going with you don’t run off on your own!!”

Mikoto: “Wawawa, got my cell phone and my purse……if I don’t hurry Saten-san will be gone.”

Kongou: “……Running off like that, just why would she do such a thing?”

Mikoto: “It’s a bit difficult to explain……”

Mikoto: “In any case, since I can’t leave her alone, it may be rude but you’ll have to excuse me here.”

Kongou: “Please wait, Misaka-san.”

Mikoto: “I have to chase after Saten-san though.”

Kongou: “I shall accompany you. Today it is my intention to spend the whole day with you, Misaka-san.”

Mikoto: “……Intention, is it.”

Kongou: “Now then, let’s go! Before we lose sight of that person!”

Scene 2

Fufufufu. This is called observing the enemy’s actions.

ULJS00354_00009

Mikoto: “Now that I have agreed to purchase a swimsuit, I also kind of want to go swimming.”

Saten: “Oh, it’s fine! I had expected as much!”

Mikoto: “Swimsuits then.”

Saten: “Sure.”

Mikoto: “Even if it’s clothes that you are carrying, wouldn’t you want them to be cute looking one?”

Saten: “Ahh, I understand, I totally understand. A swimsuit is a part of one’s fashion.”

Mikoto: “Indeed, quite so.”

Mikoto: “As expected, I think it’s important that the swimsuit match the location.”

Saten: “Matching the TPO is the basic necessity.” {Time, Place, Occasion}

Mikoto: “That new sports club we were talking about, that would be the place right?”

Mikoto: “The swimsuits I’ve owned up until now probably aren’t a match for it so I’m a bit anxious about that place.”

Saten: “That’s it!! I just thought of something interesting!”

Saten: “We’re purchasing swimsuits at Seventh Mist, and from there we’ll be heading to the aforementioned sports club.”

Saten: “So then, why don’t we compare and see which swimsuits match the atmosphere of the new sports club?”

Mikoto: “Hee, how interesting. The let’s go and focus on choosing a swimsuit.”

Saten: “Great, then it’s settled! Let’s hurry to Seventh Mist!”

ULJS00354_00011

Saten: “We’ve arrived—!!”

ULJS00354_00010

Mikoto: “Thank goodness it’s as cool inside the store as one would expect. It’s so hot outside……”

Saten: “Now then. The match has already started. I’m going to look over there.”

Mikoto: “I should also choose one huh. In truth there is a swimsuit I’ve been considering.”

ULJS00354_00012

Mikoto: “I hope they’re not sold-out. ……Ah, there! Here it is!”

Mikoto: “Though if Kuroko saw it, she’d probably make numerous complaints again……”

Mikoto: “It’s fine though. What’s cute is cute. To start with, let’s check it real quick.”

Mikoto: “So, the dressing room.”

Saten: “Ji∼∼∼∼……” {TN: Onomatopoeia for staring}

Mikoto: “Wawah!? Saten-san, weren’t you choosing from the ones over there!?”

Saten: “Fufufufu. This is called observing the enemy’s actions.”

Saten: “The swimsuit Misaka-san selected, you really like it huh.”

Mikoto: “I-It’s not like I particularly care about such things. Usual, just the usual amount.”

Saten: “You really like it riiiiiight? What kind is it? Please show show me∼”

Mikoto: “Ehh, t-that’s, umm……!”

Saten: “Come on——”

Mikoto: (W-What should I do? I wonder if she’ll laugh at me for being childish.)

Saten: “Come come!!

Choices:

 

Sports Club

Mikoto: “It’s for the sports club! S-So I’ll get this one!”

Saten: “Hou……. So it’s a swimming race swimsuit is it? However, isn’t it true that you want the swimsuit that you’ve been holding all this time?”

Mikoto: “N-No way, that’s, not it really. See, I just picked this one up by mistake.”

Saten: “Is that so……? Then, you’re getting this swimming race type?”

Mikoto: “Y-Yeah. Considering TPO, it definitely should be something like this.”

Saten: “I syee. I was hesitating over a swimsuit with a cute design. But, if Misaka-san is attacking along those lines, I’ll also go with a swimming race swimsuit.”

Mikoto: “I-Indeed.”

None

Saten: “Oh, so is that the swimsuit that Misaka-san has chosen?”

Mikoto: (Uwah, it’s been seen!)

Mikoto: “T-This is, uhm.”

Saten: “Isn’t it fine, isn’t it fine—! It’s so cute, and it really suits you! “

Mikoto: “Eh, i-is that so……. I-It’s not childish?”

Saten: “Not at all——. That’s the fashion this year you know, ones like this.”

Mikoto: “Wah, r-really……? Well then, I-I’m going with this one—”

Continue below and select Scene 3



Saten: “Well then, we’ve bought our swimsuits, so let’s to the sports club!”


Scene 3

It’s called a candid shot Uiharu.

ULJS00354_00013.jpg

Saten: “We have purchased new swimsuits. So now let’s enjoy them in the pool!”

Mikoto: “Yeah, it’ll be nice to cool down a bit from being in this heat.”

Mikoto: (I’m going to enjoy my cute swimsuit.)

Mikoto: (While Kuroko would say several things if she saw it, I like it so it can’t be helped.)

Mikoto: (It’s not as though I bought it expressly to show it to Kuroko……)

Mikoto: (It’s fine if I keep it a secret from Kuroko.)

Saten: “Say, Misaka-san. Isn’t that Uiharu and Shirai-san over there?”

Mikoto: “Ehh?”

Mikoto: “Those girls, aren’t they in the middle of working for Judgement? I don’t think it’d be a good idea to hinder them.”

Saten: “OI—, UIHARU—”

Mikoto: “WAAH!”

Uiharu: “Huh, oh, Saten-san, Misaka-san.”

Kuroko: “Oh my, Onee-sama! To be able to encounter you in such a place!”

Kuroko: Surely Onee-sama and I are tightly bound together by destiny!”

Mikoto: “H-Hey, get off me, it’s too hot!”

Saten: “What are you guys doing, Uiharu?”

Uiharu: “We’re on patrol. We checking around to see if there are any suspicious people and such.”

Mikoto: “If it’s suspicious people, I’ve got one clinging to me right here!”

Kuroko: “Onee-sama, don’t tell me to let go of you∼……huh, what’s this bag?”

Mikoto: “Th-That’s……!”

Saten: “I felt like going to the pool with Misaka-san, so the two of just bought swimsuits.”

Kuroko: “P-Poooooool!?”

Kuroko: “In other words, that means Onee-sama at the pool!?”

Saten: “Isn’t that what I just said?”

Saten: “Do you know about the new sports club that opened near hear?”

Saten: “We were just on our way over there.”

Kuroko: “Onee-sama……at a sports club……”

Mikoto: “Ah, s-say, Kuroko”

Kuroko: “Disregarding me, the two of you……are monopolizing Onee-sama’s swimsuit figure to yourselves!?”

Kuroko steals the bag

Mikoto: “Ah, hey!!”

Kuroko: “I need to check to see just what sort of swimsuit that you’ll be wearing while hiding it from me!”

Kuroko: “……With that, huh, another adorable one.”

Mikoto: “S-Shut up, it’s fine enough alright!”

Saten: “Uiharu—, this is the swimsuit I bought! It’s so cute, look look!”

Uiharu: “S-Saten-san, please don’t do things like hold out a swimsuit in the middle of the street like this.”

Mikoto: “G-Give it back already! Geez!!”

Mikoto: “W-Well then with that, seeya!”

Kuroko: “……Hold it!”

Mikoto: “Heh!?”

Kuroko: “Uiharu, what kind of plans do we have for today after this?”

Uiharu: “Eh, well, after we patrol the 7th  School District, we don’t have any particular instructions……”

Kuroko: “Indeed. Well then, let’s go, Uiharu.”

Uiharu: “Eh, w-where to?”

Kuroko: “Didn’t Konori-senpai say it during the meeting?”

Kuroko: “Nowadays, with the prevalence of peeping photos at the pool, we must be cautious and not neglect our surveillance.”

Uiharu: “However, the pool’s outside our jurisdiction……”

Kuroko: “No! Since the pool is a place within the 7th School District, it’s fine to include within the scope of our patrol!”

Uiharu: “Eeeh!? Is that okay? Deciding that so arbitrarily.”

Kuroko: “This is part of my duties! Now that’s settled, Onee-sama!”

Mikoto: “Y-Yes!?”

Kuroko: “Uiharu and I will be accompanying you to the pool.”

Uiharu: “But we don’t have swimsuits.”

Kuroko: “Things like that it’s okay if we purchase them on the way! You should resolve yourself to this, Uiharu!”

Mikoto: “Hold it, why did it come to this?”

Saten: “Now now, Misaka-san, it’s perfectly alright. The number of people has just swelled is all!”

Kuroko: “By the way, Onee-sama, is that sort of adorable swimsuit really suitable for a sports club?”

Mikoto: “I-I wonder……i-isn’t it fine for it to be cute.”

Kuroko: “Nope, a cute swimsuit is no good since it doesn’t fit with the TPO, is what I would say.”

Kuroko: “With something like that, wouldn’t be better off going to a resort facility instead of a sports club?”

Saten: “I think it’d be fine either way, wouldn’t it? So long as you can swim as you please.”

Mikoto: “W-Well then let’s do that.”

ULJS00354_00014.jpg

Saten: “Hyahoy! My, this is ideal pool weather!”

Kuroko: “Shall we play with the beach ball again? And then why don’t we sip some drinks?”

Mikoto: “Heh, we should take advantage of the artificial beach. It’s not much different from the real thing.”

Uiharu: “Is this really fine I wonder……”

Saten: “Hey, Uiharu! DON!!”

Splash

Uiharu: “Wapuh!? What did you do that for, Saten-san!!”

Saten: “You did come all the way here. You should make up your mind already and just cut loose.”

Saten: “If you’re worried the worst that can happen is you get scolded later. Look, see Shirai-san?”

Kuroko: “Onee-sama∼! Try to catch me∼! Ahaha, ufufu……”

Mikoto: “No way. It’s too bothersome.”

Kuroko: “Not easy to convince are you.”

Kuroko: “Well then, I will everything in I can to induce you to chase after me, using this hand……”

Mikoto: “Wai! Can you stop moving your hands like that? What in the world are you scheming!”

Kuroko: “Ufufu. That’s a secret∼.”

Uiharu: “Shirai-san has completely gone into private mode.”

Uiharu: “It kind of feels like she lost herself somehow.”

Saten: “Right? Therefore, you should flip your switch as well, Uiharu!”‘

Uiharu: “Understood! Today I will play to the fullest extent! Saten-san, let’s go down the slide, the slide!”

Saten: “Alright then! I accompany you as much as you like∼”

Mikoto: “Oh, that sounds fun. Kuroko, we’re also going sliding!!”

Kuroko: “Sliding with Onee-sama!? Please let us go together!”

Mikoto: “It’s fine I guess, but if you cling to me more than necessary, the consequences will be severe!”

Kuroko: “Oh my, Onee-sama. Did you forget that this is a pool? Use of electrical shocks is strictly prohibited.”

Uiharu: “Shirai-san, it’s no good for a Judgement member to disrupt public morals!”

Saten: “Now now, it’ll be fine, Uiharu. Today let’s put aside rank and go all out!”

Uiharu: “Uwah, Saten-san! Please don’t cling to my swimsuit.”

Teleport sounds

Uiharu: “Huh, Shirai-san? What are you doing?”

Kuroko: “No, it’s nothing?”

Uiharu: “……Didn’t you just teleport?”

Kuroko: “Noo waay right♪ Look Uiharu, those two are coming back.”

Teleport sound

Saten: “I’m back, Uiharu. Huh? Where’s Shirai-san?”

Uiharu: “Eh, she was right here until just now.”

Mikoto: “What, is Kuroko not here? Can’t be helped then I guess.”

Teleport sound

Kuroko: “What about me?”

Mikoto: “Ah, Kuroko. Where did you go?”

Kuroko: “I-I didn’t go anywhere.. I’ve been here with Uiharu the entire time.”

Mikoto: “Really?”

Uiharu: “Certainly Shirai-san was with with me, but to say that we were together the whole time……”

Kuroko: “Such a minor nuance is okay to ignore. Look look let’s play let’s play, ei eei!”

ULJS00354_00015

Mikoto: “Just a, what are you doing!”

ULJS00354_00016.jpg

Kuroko: “Onee-sama, using electric shocks is prohibited.”

Mikoto: “I know that even if you didn’t say it twice……”

Mikoto: “Puwah! That’s it!”

Saten: “Ooh, if it’s now I can surpass Tokiwadai’s Railgun, I’m getting in on this!”

Mikoto: “Even Saten-san!?”

Uiharu: “Umm……excuse me, EI, EI!”

Mikoto: “Bubuh, stop Uiharu-san! It’s in my nose, there’s water in my nose!”

Saten: “An opening!!”

Mikoto: “Ah! No fair!!”

Mikoto: “Puwah! Just a second, Saten!? Just wait a bit!!”

ULJS00354_00019

Saten: “I get it I get it. Having water up your nose is quite unpleasant.”

Saten: “Look look, Uiharu is becoming your companion in nasal discomfort.”

Uiharu: “Hyah, stop it Saten-san!”

Saten: “Shouldn’t I water the flowers on your head?”

ULJS00354_00020.jpg

Uiharu: “Bubuh, Saten-san hyah, if it means having nasal discomfort, I don’t want to be acknowledged as a companion!”

Saten: “Wahahaha—, it’s not me it’s the water∼”

Mikoto: “Is there a difference?”

ULJS00354_00021.jpg

Uiharu: “Hyawawah, it’s cold.”

Kuroko: “I-I’m so envious. I dream of having such a scene with Onee-sama……”

Mikoto: “Eh? What was that Kuroko?”

Kuroko: “Prepare yourself, Onee-sama!”

Mikoto: “Bahaa, now you’ve done it Kuroko!”

ULJS00354_00022.jpg

Kuroko: “Yaaaaaan, it’s cold, I’m quite pleased with this comfortable cold.”

Mikoto: “Uwah……she’s pleased. I have to pull back!”

ULJS00354_00000.jpg

Kuroko: “Take this! Revenge!!”

Mikoto: “Buhaa, got me again……hold it Kuroko, you won’t get away!”

Saten: “I’m also going to join in! You should join in as well, Uiharu.”

Uiharu: “Ahaha……just how is this patrolling for those who take peeping photos, I wonder.”

ULJS00354_00001.jpg

Mikoto: “Mmm∼! We really let loose in there!”

Uiharu: “Unsurprisingly I’m worn out now……”

Saten: “How slovenly for a member of Judgement.”

Uiharu: “Misaka-san and Saten-san have way too much energy.”

Saten: “Shirai-san doesn’t look especially tired. Look.”

Kuroko: “Fufu……fufufu.”

Mikoto: “Huh? Kuroko, is that a digital camera your holding?”

Kuroko: “Hayi!? T-This is nothing at all. I was just reviewing some photos I took the other day……”

Uiharu: “Huh? But Shirai-san, weren’t you using that digital camera in the pool?”

Kuroko: “U-Uiharu! Too much……!”

Mikoto: “……Kuroko.”

Kuroko: “W-What is it, Onee-sama?”

Mikoto: “May I see that digital camera for just a bit?”

Kuroko: “T-This is important equipment of Judgement, so an ordinary person like Onee-sama can’t just look as you please……”

Uiharu: “Eh, isn’t this you private property?”

Kuroko: “Shh, shh!! Be quiet Uiharu!”

Mikoto: “Kuroko?”

Kuroko: “………………Yes.”

Mikoto: “Let·me·see·it·you·hear·me!”

Kuroko: “Yes……say, Onee-sama, is this fine?”

Mikoto: “It’s this button for the display……WHA……!?”

ULJS00354_00016

Mikoto: “You, just when did you take this!?”

Saten: “T-This is……”

Uiharu: “A swimsuit photo……? Or rather, a peeping photo……?”

Saten: “Uwah, she really was photographed.”

Uiharu: “Even from this angle……”

Mikoto: “………………Kuroko.”

Kuroko: “N-No, you’re wrong about this Onee-sama.”

Kuroko: “This is merely what you would call a small reckless expression of my love for Onee-sama……”

Kuroko: “T-This is also for Judgement, since without someone to watch people cannot help but to direct lewd gazes at Onee-sama’s beautiful face……”

Saten: “Ah, here’s a photo of Uiharu.”

ULJS00354_00021

Uiharu: “W-W-Why is there even a photo of me!? Just when did you take this, geeeez!!”

Kuroko: “Well, an accident or something I should say, or rather the fire in the soul of a cameraman suddenly……”

Saten: “Ohh, amazing amazing. Your photograph is as cute as those in a graveur magazine, Uiharu∼.”

Kuroko: “Right!? When I realized that I reflexively pressed the shutter button.”

Uiharu: “That’s not the issue! Why would just arbitrarily take it, I’m so ashamed, ugh.”

Mikoto: “If that’s the case, if I advance it even further……”

ULJS00354_00019

Mikoto: “As I thought, you also took ones of Saten-san.”

Saten: “I don’t particularly mind. Wow, it’s quite a good shot isn’t it.”

Saten: “This photo, I didn’t notice you taking it at all. How did you do this?”

Kuroko: “Well, you see, I set the waterproof digital camera using Teleport and activated the shutter by remote……”

Saten: “Ooh! So that’s how you photographed this. Shirai-san, don’t you have quite the talent for photographing?”

Kuroko: “I-Is that really so? I should set my sights on that profession then……”

Mikoto: “Don’t get taken in by her rhythm!”

POW!!

Kuroko: “AITA!!”

Mikoto: “Saying you were patrolling due to an increase in peeping photo victims, and meanwhile weren’t you yourself a perpetrator of such peeping photos!?”

Kuroko: “No way those are peeping photos! Please call them impulsive acts born of love!”

Mikoto: “It’s the same thing!”

Mikoto: “So I’m erasing the data!”

Kuroko: “Ahh, my beautiful work……”

Kuroko: (But, if there’s a photographing chance, there’ll be many more after this. Gufu, gufufufufu……)

Mikoto: “……And now, I’m destroying this digital camera.”

Kuroko: “What was that!?”

Mikoto: “You just said goodbye to your debut performance.”

Kuroko: “Uhuh, even though that I only purchased that digital camera……”

Kuroko: “So that I could do this while saying shutter chance!”

Camera flash

Mikoto: “KYAAA!?”

Mikoto: “Why you! Where’d you run off to! Kuroko—!!”

Kuroko: “Ohoho, you’re still so naive, Onee-sama! I’ve prepared numerous other digital cameras!”

Kuroko: “For today’s scene, I’m satisfied with a shot of Onee-sama’s exposed short pants!!”

Kuroko: “Ooohohoho!! Ooohohohohoho!!”

Mikoto: “Kuuuuh! She got me! I need to vent my anger somewhere!!”

Uiharu: “Umm, I’m just thinking but”

Uiharu: “Don’t Misaka-san and Shirai-san share the same dorm room? As to where Shirai-san is planning to return to……”

Mikoto: “That’s it! That fool Kuroko, when she gets back I’ll char her black!!”

Mikoto: “I’m going to hurry back so I can set a booby trap! I’ll see you two tomorrow!”

Mikoto: “I absolutely won’t let her get away!!”

Saten: “Sure thing, then at the usual place.”

Uiharu: “I wonder if Shirai-san will be okay.”

Saten: “Tomorrow we can enjoy hearing all the details at the usual family restaurant.”

Uiharu: “It would be a good thing if Shirai-san also comes.”

Saten: “Well then, we should also be returning soon.”

Uiharu: “Quite right.”

Saten: “I also got a nice shot.”

Uiharu: “……Huh?”

Saten: “You also want to look, Uiharu?”

ULJS00354_00000

Uiharu: “Ah……this is Shirai-san?”

Saten: “It’s Shirai-san no matter how you look at it.”

Uiharu: “Just when did you……”

Saten: “Though she didn’t notice me taking it, when I saw Shirai-san taking photos of Uiharu.”

Uiharu: “Then, Saten-san also took peeping photos?”

Saten: “That’s bad for my reputation. They’re not peeping photos. It’s called a candid shot Uiharu.”

Uiharu: “I don’t think that’s all that different……”

Saten: “In any case, isn’t it cute? The time that Shirai-san was swimming with Misaka-san.”

Uiharu: “I don’t understand how, ‘it’s cute so it’s fine to take it,’ is a good reason.”

Saten: “Well, she also took photos of us, so with this we’re even.”

Uiharu: “They were erased by Misaka-san though right?”

Saten: “Oh, you’re right. Then we should also erase this one.”

Saten: “Now then, let’s head back.”

Like this, Misaka and company’s summer vacation continued to pass entirely uneventfully…….

THE END?


Scene 4

You can swim at amazing speeds

ULJS00354_00013

Saten: “Speaking of swimming race swimsuits, it’s nice that they were produced with the latest technology for the sake of upping your time.”

Mikoto: “Yeah, I hear that they incorporate materials and designs that reduce water resistance.”

Saten: “As expected of Academy City’s racing swimsuits, they are the cutting-edge of the cutting-edge.”

Saten: “You can swim at amazing speeds.”

Mikoto: “Hmm, is that so? Though it may just be possible that there are also swimsuits like that, but……”

Mikoto: “Since the ones we bought were cheap, shouldn’t we not expect them to have such an effect?”

Saten: “I guess you’re right……hmm, that’s too bad.”

Mikoto: “However, it does give you the mindset of a swimmer. Let’s measure our times when we get there.”

Saten: “Ooh, how interesting! Then it’s a competition, Misaka-san!”

|

ULJS00354_00004

Kuroko: “Now then, I won’t lose if it’s a swimming race!”

Mikoto: “……Tch, why are you here!?”

Kuroko: “Oh my Onee-sama, how cold. You should be overjoyed at this unexpected reunion!”

Mikoto: ” H-Hey, don’t cling to me!”

Saten: “Why are you here as well, Uiharu? Weren’t you patrolling?”

Uiharu: “About that, while we were patrolling in the vicinity of Seventh Mist, we caught sight of Misaka-san and Saten-san.”

Saten: “Eh? For just such a reason?”

Uiharu: “Since we saw the two of you entering this place, Shirai-san spoke up and said we had been switched over to pool patrol.”

Mikoto: “What unexpected reunion! Weren’t you just tailing us!?”

Kuroko: “It’s exactly as you say. Ohohohohoho……”

Kuroko: “However, this is af·ter·all! an official patrol. Ohohohoho……”

Mikoto: “Ah, you were serious! Konori-senpai ordered you to?”

Kuroko: “Fufun, right on the mark! Recently, there has been an increase in the victims of peeping photos at the pool.”

Kuroko: “That is to say that that was the patrol, even if Konori-senpai didn’t explicitly say to unilaterally stop it.”

Mikoto: “It that true?”

Saten: “Since peeping photo images have been popping up on the net, you can’t be too careful.”

Mikoto: “I’d hate for it to pop up on the net……if I discovered someone taking peeping photos I’ll electrocute them.”

Kuroko: “Onee-sama, an electric shock would probably spread through the pool. That would involve ordinary civilians outside of the peeping photo takers.”

Mikoto: “……That’s certainly the case.”

Kuroko: “So that that doesn’t happen, you must immediately call on me.”

Mikoto: “It sounds like an excuse you just came up with though.”

Saten: “Now now, it’s alright isn’t it? Let’s all have fun together for now!”

Mikoto: “Given that the two of you are wearing swimsuits, this was certainly your intention from the start.”

Saten: “We also selected perfectly state of the art swimsuits though∼”

Kuroko: “By the way Onee-sama, that swimsuit is new, right.”

Mikoto: “Yeah, I did just buy it with Saten-san but……”

Mikoto: “Wait, why are you aware of all the swimsuits I own?”

Kuroko: “If it’s about Onee-sama, I know absolutely everything! This is the form of my love……!”

Mikoto: “Ah sure sure……Saten-san, about that competition we spoke of earlier, let’s do it.”

Saten: “Sure! You come as well Uiharu, we need someone to time us to decide who’s the fastest!”

Uiharu: “I’m not very confident.”

Mikoto: “Alright, first it’s me and Saten-san. I won’t lose.”

Saten: “Same here!”

Uiharu: “Well then, here we go. Ready……go!!”

Mikoto: “Take this!!”

Saten: “Oryah!!”

Splash

ULJS00354_00002.jpg

Mikoto: “Hah, we swam and we swam. That was really fun.”

Mikoto: “It feels good showering after a workout. It also feels refreshing.”

Saten: “Swimming all out without paying any mind to the other guests, it was right to choose the sports club huh.”

Mikoto: “How did I not know that a place like this was so close by? We should all come and play here again.”

Kuroko: “Certainly yes! It would be nice if it was just the two of us next time, Onee-sama.”

Kuroko: “With no one to get in our way it’ll be like spending an affectionate holiday on a private beach.”

Mikoto: “What do mean affectionate? That sounds especially dubious.”

Kuroko: “If you want to know, I can offer to teach you directly. Ufufu.”

Uiharu: “Eeeh, you’re saying we’re not invited?”

Kuroko: “If a child like Uiharu was there, it wouldn’t be affectionate.”

Uiharu: “I’m not a child you know!”

Mikoto: “Something like me being alone with Kuroko is a no-no. I’ll be more at ease if Uiharu-san and Saten-san are also invited.”

Saten: “There you have it, Uiharu. Thank goodness right?”

Uiharu: “YEAH!”

Mikoto: “Ah, I also bought shampoo and conditioner. There’s some left. Do you all want to use some?”

ULJS00354_00005.jpg

Uiharu: “Wah, as expected of Misaka-san. I’ll borrow some∼”

Mikoto: “Got it, coming your way. Pass!”

Uiharu: “Wawawawa! I received it, thank you so much.”

Uiharu: “Ahaha, it certainly is quite different from not having any shampoo∼”

Mikoto: “Right? If it’s just a shower it’s not as satisfying.”

Saten: “Say, I’ve been wondering about something for a bit. Uiharu, do you properly remove your hair ornaments when you wash up?”

Uiharu: “Hmph, of course. I don’t wear anything when I shower.”

Saten: “Eh, I was certain that if it was Uiharu you would wash up while still wearing it.”

Uiharu: “Saten-san, just what do you think I am!?”

Saten: “Hm, a living creature called Uiharu?”

Uiharu: “Someone like Saten-san is like a living creature called Saten-san.”

Uiharu: “Oh, Uiharu speaks.”

ULJS00354_00006.jpg

Saten: “Ah, Misaka-san, is alright if I also borrow your shampoo?”

Mikoto: “It’s fine. I purchased it thinking that everyone could use it.”

Saten: “Hey Uiharu, pass it here!”

Uiharu: S-Sure. Coming your way, Saten-san. Heave-ho……did you get it?”

Saten: “Thank you thank you.”

Saten: “I’ll be using this, Misaka-san.”

Mikoto: “Go ahead. Use as much as you like.”

Mikoto: “It’ll end up being thrown away when we leave the pool so don’t hold back.”

Uiharu: “This shampoo has such a nice fragrance huh∼ Isn’t it something quite pleasant?”

Mikoto: “Ooh, I only just noticed, but this is something only sold in beauty parlors.”

Saten: “It’s somewhat pleasing to have such a commodity at my disposal.”

Saten: “You could say that it understand a girl’s essence.”

ULJS00354_00007

Kuroko: (Though I thought I would be the first to borrow it, those two have completely taken the initiative……)

Kuroko: (With this my plan to go and retrieve directly from Onee-sama’s position using Teleport has been ruined.)

Uiharu: “Shirai-san? You suddenly became so quiet, are you alright?”

Kuroko: (My Direct Teleport Strategy has been discarded is all.)

Kuroko: (However, using the same fragrance of shampoo as Onee-sama……some kind of situation will surely sprout from this.)

Mikoto: “She really has been quiet. You okay, Kuroko? Are you dizzy from the shower?”

Kuroko: “……Hah! Ah, no, it’s nothing at all!”

Kuroko: “M-May I also use Onee-sama’s shampoo?”

Saten: “Huh? There’s none left inside. Sorry, Shirai-san.”

Kuroko: “……No, I didn’t think it was refined anyways.”

Mikoto: “Sure you might say that, but you’d use it if you could……”

Mikoto: “Anyhow, you always complain that this kind of cheap item isn’t suitable for your hair.”

Kuroko: “Ugh, s-such a thing……I said no such thing.”

Uiharu: “But Shirai-san, didn’t you say that you use nothing but shampoo you have chosen?”

Kuroko: “When time and circumstances permit it.”

Mikoto: “You don’t need to specifically not use it. Just be patient until we get back to the dorms.”

Kuroko: “Haa……that’s right. If only I had borrowed it sooner……”

Kuroko: “Well, today I’m plenty satisfied from Onee-sama’s swimsuit figure, so this is acceptable.”

Mikoto: “Kuroko, did you say something?”

Kuroko: “I said that next time we come back to visit I will select an even sexier swimsuit.”

Mikoto: “Kuroko’s sense is just barely legal right……if you swim in something like that, you’ll get a warning from Judgement.”

Uiharu: “Hah!! Now that you mention it I forgot that we were working!!”

Uiharu: “What should we do……we haven’t even been in contact. Konori-senpai is likely to be angry.”

Kuroko: “I already pr-prepre-prepared myself for that.”

Mikoto: “Isn’t your voice trembling?”

Mikoto: “Well, Kuroko is also scared then. Let’s change quickly and head back.”

Saten: “Let’s do that then.”

|

ULJS00354_00001

Mikoto: “……Phew, the wind feels nice.”

Kuroko: “I’m a little bit chilly…… Uuh, what should I tell Konori-senpai.”

Female: “KYAAH! Pervert!! SOMEBODY!!”

Kuroko: “Muh! An incident has occurred! An unforgivable pervert!!”

Saten: “If a pervert gets captured, you can use the excuse that you were patrolling the pool!”

Kuroko: “Saten-san, you’re a genius! Let’s go, Uiharu!!”

Uiharu: “Wawah, at least wait until I can attach my armband!!”

Mikoto: “Great! Let’s go give Kuroko and her a hand.”

Saten: “That sounds interesting! Let’s do it!”

Kuroko: “Stop right there you pervert! This is Judgement!”

Uiharu: “Ah, the culprit is holding a camera! It’s possible he was taking peeping photos.”

Saten: “Waaaaaaait, enemy of womankind!”

Mikoto: “Phun, you won’t get away!!”

Thus Misaka and the others’ summer vacation continued to be lively…….

THE END?

Scene 5

Time for Saten-san’s decisive interview assault!!

ULJS00354_00012.jpg

Saten: “Yahoo!”

Mikoto: “Wait a second. Just calm down Saten-san.”

Saten: “No way Misaka-san, I am calm already!”

Kongou: “No matter how you look at it, you don’t look as though you’ve calmed down.”

Mikoto: “You have excessive tension, Saten-san……huh?”

Saten: “What’s the matter?”

Mikoto: “Hmm∼, I wonder what.”

Mikoto: “……That’s it, I thought something was strange; Antiskill isn’t here.”

Saten: “Oh my—now that you mention it.”

Mikoto: “And you could that in place of them there are instead several groups wearing Judgement armbands.”

Topic ‘Judgement Armband’ Acquired

Kongou: “That is certainly the case. Even on my way here I noticed a large number of people with Judgement.”

Saten: “It feels like they’re substitutes.”

Mikoto: “Substitutes?”

Saten: “Hmm well, could it perhaps be due to Antiskill being recruited for some big job or another?”

Saten: “As it seems, could they be entrusting the other odd jobs like patrolling to Judgement?”

Mikoto: “Saten-san, have you heard of any such thing happening up until now?”

Saten: “Not at all since I’m not part of Judgement.”

Topic ‘Antiskill’s Substitute’ Acquired

Mikoto: “Well the same can be said for me…… Kongou-san. have you heard anything?”

Kongou: “While there are times they reluctantly provide assistance at individual crime scenes, I haven’t heard anything about them serving as outright proxies.”

Saten: “However, if that’s the case, those repairing the UFO in order to fly to Saturn——”

Saten: “It isn’t Judgement but rather Antiskill! Uumu, I get the impression that the skill level of the guards has risen slightly.”

Mikoto: “No, see now Saten-san. As I said regarding that stereotypical flying saucer……”

Saten: “However Judgement must be indirectly influencing it!!”

Mikoto: “Err……”

Saten: “Using that as a beginning, let’s build up points of contact towards reaching the central core itself!!”

Saten: “Now then, commencing information gathering!!”

Mikoto: “Just a minute Saten-san. Who are you planning on asking for information?”

Saten: “Isn’t it decided Misaka-san? We’re gathering information straight from the center of Judgement!”

Mikoto: “As though they’ll answer if you ask about such a thing……”

Saten: “Ah, I found a Judgement member over there!”

Mikoto: “Hold it, Saten-san!?”

Saten: “Time for Saten-san’s decisive interview assault!!”

Mikoto: “Wait up I said!”

Kongou: “……She’s already going over.”

Kongou: “Is she always just like that?”

Mikoto: “That’s not exactly the case.”

Kongou: “……She isn’t coming back is she?”

Mikoto: “Ah, it’s true. Just where did she run off to I wonder. Perhaps I should call Saten-san’s cell……”

Kongou: “……She’s not picking up?”

Mikoto: “No answer.”

Kongou: “At this rate, won’t she deliriously interrogate every Judgement member she notices one by one?”

Mikoto: “Quite possibly.”

Mikoto: “……There’s no other way, I have to get to where she’s going before she does.”

Kongou: “If she notices her cell phone ringing, would she try to call you back?”

Mikoto: “I’d say it’s doubtful that there’s time for that. Saten-san is considerably wound up after all.”

Kongou: “Well then, wouldn’t it be fine to just let her do as she likes?”

Mikoto: “I don’t think that’s the case……she might stick her nose into something dangerous.”

Kongou: “You’re really considerate towards your friends, Misaka-san.”

Mikoto: “Since that’s the case, I’m sorry Kongou-san. We’ll have another opportunity.”

Kongou: “If that’s the case, allow me to assist you as well.”

Mikoto: “Eh, you will Kongou-san?”

Kongou: “Another pair of hands will allow you to search more efficiently. Do you want me to make some phone calls?”

Mikoto: “Ah, sure. That’s fine……do you by chance mean Wannai-san and Awatsuki-san?”

Kongou: “I do indeed. Well then, excuse me for a minute……”

Kongou: “Hello, it’s me. Where are the two of you right now?”

Kongou: “……My, that’s surprisingly close. Well then, I wonder if we could meet up immediately……yeah.”

Mikoto: (She’s truly summoning them……)

Kongou: “Thank you for waiting, Misaka-san. Our reinforcements will rush over here immediately.”

Mikoto: “I-I see, thank you.”

Mikoto: (I feel bad for Wannai-san and Awatsuki-san.)

Kongou: “Until those two get here, shall we decided where we are going to search?”

Mikoto: “Sure, let’s do that.”

Mikoto: “You wouldn’t happen to know where she may have run off to do you?”

Mikoto: “I wonder, for the places she could have gone to from here, there’s the business district, the park, and Saten-san’s school I guess.”

Topic ‘Business District’ Acquired

Topic ‘Park’ Acquired

Topic ‘Sakugawa Middle School’ Acquired

Kongou: “Well then, where should we head to begin searching? Please let me hear you thoughts, Misaka-san.”

Mikoto: “Since Saten-san ought to be travelling while gathering information, I think she won’t have gone all that far. “

Kongou: “I see……”

NOTE: For the next several scenes, it is ESSENTIAL you keep track of which Topics you acquire until you reach either Scene 13 or Scene 14 (there are only 3 to worry about). Also, for the 3 Topics acquired just above (Business District, Park, and Sakugawa Middle School) as well as the 3 that will be acquired in the upcoming, you should keep track of which ones you’ve used in decisions scenes. If you see a choice that you selected in a previous decision, ignore that decision and choose from those left over.}

CHOICES:

 

Business District

Kongou: “If she’s gathering information, wouldn’t she head somewhere with lots of people? Shouldn’t we search the business district?”

Mikoto: “There is some truth to that sowe might as well.”

Continue reading below and the select Scene 7


 

Sakugawa Middle School

Mikoto: “Let’s go to Sakugawa Middle School.”

Kongou: “What is the basis for that?”

Mikoto: “Saten-san has unusually high tension, so it might end up functioning like a homing beacon.”

Kongou: “If Misaka-san says so then I’ll accompany you.”

Continue reading below and select Scene 8


 

Park

Kongou: “In this dry weather, it ought to be a place where you can rehydrate. Wouldn’t the park be ideal?”

Mikoto: “It is quite hot today as well. There is merit in going there then.”

Continue reading below and select Scene 9


 

None

Mikoto: “Hmm∼, Saten-san’s destination……I can’t predict it.”

Kongou: “What’s the matter?”

Mikoto: “Ah, since we heard her say a little bit about catching a member of Judgement it’s we should probably go directly to the subdivision.”

Mikoto: “If it’s Uiharu-san, she very well may happen to know something.”

Kongou: “……Must be tough for you, Misaka-san.”

Kongou: “However, let’s visit the Judgement subdivision.”

Continue reading below and select Scene 6



Kongou: “We’ve settled on a destination, so now……”

Wannai: “Good day.”

Awatsuki: “Good day.”

Kongou: “Good timing you two. I offer you my praise.”

Mikoto: “Sorry for making you accompany us.”

Wannai: “No, please don’t worry about it.”

Awatsuki: “What is it that we can do?”

Mikoto: “I want to search for my friend. It’s Saten-san, you should know her face.”

Awatsuki: “Yes, we surely know it.”

Kongou: “I think we should split into groups to search, so how about you two go and search separately?”

Wannai: “Yes. If we find Saten-san, we will contact you immediately.”

Awatsuki: “Well then, we’ll be going.”

Mikoto: “Thank you. Good luck.”

Mikoto: “Well then let’s get going as well, Kongou-san.”

Kongou: “Yes, I shall accompany you.”


Scene 5.5

ULJS00354_00013

NOTE: From this point forward, I’m defining a variable S, which has a starting value of S=0. Wherever you see S=S+1, raise the value of S by 1.

S=S+1

NOTE: If S is now equal to 5, skip this mini-scene and proceed to Scene 13

Mikoto: “Saten-san, just where did she run off to?”

Kongou: “Those two haven’t caught sight of her yet either……”

Mikoto: “In any case, we have no choice but to continue searching around here.”

Kongou: “Where should we go next?”

Mikoto: “About that……”

CHOICES:

{TN: Remember, simply ignore any choices using Topics you haven’t obtained or which you have already used. Failure to keep track of which choices you’ve obtained can result in repeating scenes. For convenience, I’ve italicized all Topics and choices acquired after Scene 5}

 

Business District

Kongou: “If she’s gathering information, wouldn’t she head somewhere with lots of people? Shouldn’t we search the business district?”

Mikoto: “There is some truth to that sowe might as well.”

Proceed to Scene 7


 

Sakugawa Middle School

Mikoto: “Let’s go to Sakugawa Middle School.”

Kongou: “What is the basis for that?”

Mikoto: “Saten-san has unusually high tension, so it might end up functioning like a homing beacon.”

Kongou: “If Misaka-san says so then I’ll accompany you.”

Proceed to Scene 8


 

Park

Kongou: “In this dry weather, it ought to be a place where you can rehydrate. Wouldn’t the park be ideal?”

Mikoto: “It is quite hot today as well. There is merit in going there then.”

Proceed to Scene 9


 

Seventh Mist

Mikoto: “Perhaps she’s at Seventh Mist. If one considers a place that’s easy to get to from here and is also cool, that place would be the standard. It doesn’t even cost any money.

Kongou: “I would also prefer a place to cool off.”

Plaza Note: If starting from Scene 5 you chose None(1), Seventh Mist, and None(2) IN THAT ORDER to obtain this topic, this choice will not be initially available despite obtaining the topic. This is due to having more choices than the game can offer so you have to use up another choice (not None) before this choice becomes available.

Mikoto: “Perhaps she could be at the plaza. Saten-san didn’t eat anything a the family restaurant. In that state I think she’d immediately get hungry.”

Kongou: “Then, why the plaza?”

Mikoto: “We always go to the plaza because they sell crepes there.”

Kongou: “Buying sweets? How improper.”

Mikoto: “Well even though you say, shouldn’t you try them at least once? They’re amazingly delicious.”

Kongou: “I have taken great pains to restrain myself. Anyhow, Saten-san being drawn in by the smell of crepes means there’s a high likelihood she’s in the plaza.”

Mikoto: “Well that’s basically it. Let’s go to the plaza.”

Proceed to Scene 12


 

In Front of the Station

Kongou: “If she said she was going around making inquiries of Judgement members, I did notice a group of Judgement members in front of the station.”

Mikoto: “It’s the place with the most people coming and going. So even Judgement would need to divide the work up into several parts.”

Kongou: “Then let’s go there immediately.”

Proceed to Scene 11


 

None(1) Option replaced if you’ve viewed Scene 6.

Mikoto: “Hmm∼, Saten-san’s destination……I can’t predict it.”

Kongou: “What’s the matter?”

Mikoto: “Ah, since we heard her say a little bit about catching a member of Judgement it’s we should probably go directly to the subdivision.”

Mikoto: “If it’s Uiharu-san, she very well may happen to know something.”

Kongou: “……Must be tough for you, Misaka-san.”

Kongou: “However, let’s visit the Judgement subdivision.”

Mikoto: “In any case, we have no choice but to continue searching around here.”

Kongou: “Where should we go next?”

Mikoto: “About that……”

CHOICES:

{TN: Remember, simply ignore any choices using Topics you haven’t obtained or which you have already used. Failure to keep track of which choices you’ve obtained can result in repeating scenes. For convenience, I’ve italicized all Topics and choices acquired after Scene 5}

 

Business District

Kongou: “If she’s gathering information, wouldn’t she head somewhere with lots of people? Shouldn’t we search the business district?”

Mikoto: “There is some truth to that sowe might as well.”

Proceed to Scene 7


 

Sakugawa Middle School

Mikoto: “Let’s go to Sakugawa Middle School.”

Kongou: “What is the basis for that?”

Mikoto: “Saten-san has unusually high tension, so it might end up functioning like a homing beacon.”

Kongou: “If Misaka-san says so then I’ll accompany you.”

Proceed to Scene 8


 

Park

Kongou: “In this dry weather, it ought to be a place where you can rehydrate. Wouldn’t the park be ideal?”

Mikoto: “It is quite hot today as well. There is merit in going there then.”

Proceed to Scene 9


 

Seventh Mist

Mikoto: “Perhaps she’s at Seventh Mist. If one considers a place that’s easy to get to from here and is also cool, that place would be the standard. It doesn’t even cost any money.

Kongou: “I would also prefer a place to cool off.”

Mikoto: “Great, let’s go then.”

Now that you mention it, I was discussing various things with Saten-san the other day

Mikoto: “Hello.”

Kongou: “Pardon the intrusion.”

Konori: “Oh, Misaka-san. Kongou-san as well, hello to you.”

Mikoto: “Say, has Saten-san come by here?”

Konori: “She hasn’t come today.”

Mikoto: “Is that so……”

Kongou: “Well then you wouldn’t happen to know where Saten-san is right now would you?”

Konori: “Why?”

Mikoto: “Just now we lost sight of Saten-san……”

Mikoto: “Konori-senpai. You wouldn’t happen to know where Saten-san ran off to?”

Konori: “A place she ran off to huh……. Now that you mention it, I was discussing various things with Saten-san the other day.”

Konori: “Just give me a second to remember. Hmm∼∼”

Konori: “That’s right. She was all worked up about a bargain sale at Seventh Mist.”

Topic ‘Seventh Mist” Acquired

Mikoto: “It is indeed a topic Saten-san would like.”

Konori: “I’m sorry but that’s all we talked about.”

Mikoto: “No, it’s useful as a reference. We’ll go search around there.”

Kongou: “Well then, let’s go, Misaka-san. If you’ll please excuse us.”

Scene 6.1

Konori: “If it’s about Saten-san, she hasn’t come here.”

Mikoto: “I do feel that she may possibly come here to meet Uiharu though……”

Konori: “Now that you mention it, Uiharu-san hasn’t come back in a while either.”

Mikoto: “Say, where is Uiharu-san?”

Konori: “She ought to be patrolling in the Plaza.”

Mikoto: “It’s just as you assumed.”

Kongou: “Saten-san hasn’t been here since before has she?”

Konori: “She hasn’t come here.”

Mikoto: “Same as before.”

Konori: “Have you checked out Seventh Mist?”

Konori: “Since Shirai-san is patrolling there right now, it’s possible they met by chance and are standing around while chatting.”

Mikoto: “We’ll search there. Pardon for the intrusion.”

Scene 7

However, rather than saying she’s in the middle of patrolling, isn’t she in the middle of shopping?

ULJS00354_00015.jpg

Kongou: “There’s surely no mistake that Saten-san came to this place.”

Mikoto: “I wonder just where that confidence is coming from.”

Kongou: “Since ancient times it has been say, ‘A spy conceals himself in a crowd of people.'”

Mikoto: “So it’s like the saying, ‘You hide a tree in a forest.'”

Mikoto: “Saten-san isn’t particularly trying to hide herself though, so she isn’t actually a spy.”

Kongou: “I-Isn’t that just some minor detail? Come now, let’s search for Saten-san!”

ULJS00354_00017.jpg

Kongou: “We haven’t found her huh.”

Mikoto: “Even if she was here, with such a large crowd, it’s highly likely that we wouldn’t notice her.”

ULJS00354_00018.jpg

Judgement Member: “Aah, why do I have to do this sort of outdoors work……it’s so hot.”

Kongou: “Oh my, there’s a Judgement member.”

Mikoto: “However, rather than saying she’s in the middle of patrolling, isn’t she in the middle of shopping?”

Judgement Member: “Well, I can also use this opportunity for shopping, so it isn’t bad once in awhile.”

Mikoto: “Um, excuse me. Have you seen a girl with long hair and wearing a white flower ornament in her hair?”

Judgement Member: “Hmm? Since I’m busy right now can this wait until later?”

Mikoto: “That doesn’t seem to be the case though.”

Judgement Member: “Keeping tabs on fashion is also a job of Judgement. ……Ah, this is a nice one.”

Judgement Member: “Don’t you think so?”

Mikoto: “Eh? H-Haa……it’s not bad I guess.”

Judgement Member: “Great, let’s buy it. This one too, and I’ll by that one as well.”

Mikoto: “Say”

Judgement Member: “Ah, I’m sorry. What were we talking about? If you’re a lost child, this area’s map sign should be over there.”

Oh my, you’re the audience member from just now

ULJS00354_00000.jpg

Mikoto: “This is the middle school Saten-san and Uiharu-san attend.”

Kongou: “Compared to Tokiwadai, it’s somewhat subdued.”

Mikoto: “Rather than subdued, it feels like an ordinary middle school.”

Mikoto: “Hey, let’s ask the girl watering the flowerbeds over there.”

ULJS00354_00001

Mikoto: “Sorry, can I borrow a moment of your time?”

Student of Sakugawa: “Sure, what is it?”

Mikoto: “We’ve been looking for someone and were wondering if you knew Saten Ruiko.”

Student of Sakugawa: “……Hm∼?

Mikoto: “U-Um……what?”

Student of Sakugawa: “That uniform, you’re from Tokiwadai.”

Mikoto: “That’s is the case.”

Kongou: “Fuuh, even if I’m hiding it, my aura is noticeable it seems……”

Mikoto: “Heh?”

Kongou: “Indeed, I am surely the true star boasted of at Tokiwadai, Kongou Mitsuko!!!”

Student of Sakugawa: “……S-Sorry. Who?”

Kongou: “You don’t know of me!? For you to not be aware of such common knowledge.”

Kongou: “With such a thing, aren’t you going to lose face from now on?”

Student of Sakugawa: “I-Is that really so?”

Kongou: “While it would be fine if it ended with just losing face……”

Kongou: “To not know about me, that’s the same as living without seeing the light of day.”

Kongou: “Should you continue walking down the wrong path in life like this, won’t you end up living you life in the shade?”

Student of Sakugawa: “T-That’s troubling!”

Kongou: “In that case, take this opportunity to commit it to memory.”

Kongou: “The star of Tokiwadai, the one who shall one day bear the burden of Academy City itself, that is I, Kongou Mitsuko!!”

Student of Sakugawa: “Y-Yes!”

Kongou: “Such an obedient reply. I am pleased.”

Student of Sakugawa: “Umm, thank you very much.”

Kongou: “Oh my, if it’s gratitude then by all means. It is also the duty of a celebrity to enlighten the masses.”

Kongou: “……Fumu, I just thought of something good.”

Kongou: “Please call your friends over.”

Student of Sakugawa: “Eh?”

Kongou: “I’m saying that I will give you all my autograph. Come, hurry now!”

Student of Sakugawa: “Y-Yes! I’ll call everyone over right away!”

Mikoto: “Hold it, Kongou-san. Didn’t we come here looking for Saten-san?”

Kongou: “It is also a duty of a star to respond to the voice of her audience. Isn’t that what is called noblesse oblige?”

Mikoto: “To begin with, we’re just ordinary middle school students……”

Mikoto: “Kongou-san, I’m going to go to the staff room and ask if Saten-san has been there.”

Kongou: “OOHOHOHOHO, OOHOHOHO!!”

Mikoto: “……She didn’t hear me.”

Kongou: “Please treasure it for life.”

Student of Sakugawa: “Yes!”

Mikoto: (She’s been thoroughly tainted by Kongou-san……)

Student of Sakugawa: “Say, the two of you were looking for Saten-san right? If it’s Saten-san, I just caught sight of her in front of the train station.”

Topic ‘In Front of the Station’ Acquired

Mikoto: “You waited here to tell us that then? Thank you, we’ve been looking for her all over.”

Student of Sakugawa: “Well, it would be annoying if I was found by Judgement, so I’ll be heading off now.”

Mikoto: “Sure, seeya.”

Scene 9

After kicking, the point is to hurriedly back away and avert your gaze

ULJS00354_00003.jpg

Kongou: “This is a surprisingly popular place.”

Mikoto: “That’s because, if you’re thirsty, this is the cheapest to quickly rehydrate.”

ULJS00354_00004.jpg

Kongou: “Oh, there’s a vending machine here. Strawberry oden, guarana aojiru……”

Kongou: “They’ve gathered some unusual things here.”

Mikoto: “Kongou-san, do you not drink things like this that much?”

Kongou: “Yeah, this is only my first time seeing such a thing.”

Mikoto: “My throat’s dry as well, so how about we stop for a quick drink? Since you’re with me, if you like I can treat you.”

Kongou: “Thank you. Now which one should I get……”

Kongou: “Well then, I shall presume to accept your kind offer and have this habanero pineapple juice.”

Mikoto: “Oh, to choose that one, you have a discerning eye as expected Kongou-san.”

Kongou: “Is there something about this juice?”

Mikoto: “Successive drink maniacs have been mowed down by it, and in less than a week of it going on sale it became difficult for even a stalwart person to obtain.”

Mikoto: “You won’t find it anywhere else in the 7th School District other than here.”

Kongou: “Fuun, so that’s it.”

Mikoto: “Okay. Kongou-san, step back for a moment.”

Kongou: “Eh? Misaka-san, you aren’t going to put in money?”

Mikoto: “Angle check, approach distance check……alright then! CHASER!!”

Mikoto: “Okay, there you go.”

Kongou: “You get juice from the vending machine by delivering a roundhouse kick?”

Mikoto: “After kicking, the point is to hurriedly back away and avert your gaze.”

Kongou: “The lives of the masses are something unfathomable to someone like me whose from the upper class……”

Kongou: “Well then, I’ll help myself.”

Skill-Out (1): “Oi, move.”

Quickly shoves his way between the two.

Kongou: “Kyaa! Ah, the juice spilled all over.”

Mikoto: “Are you okay, Kongou-san? Ah, thank goodness. Looks like it didn’t get all over your clothes.”

ULJS00354_00005.jpg

Kongou: “…………Kuh, apologize!”

Skill-Out (1): “Aah? You’re to blame for being so sluggish.”

Kongou: “Not apologizing to someone you bump into is the extreme of being impolite!!!”

Blows him away.

Skill-Out (1): “Gyaph!!”

Mikoto: “Hey that was overkill Kongou-san! You actually caused him to faint.”

Kongou: “Making a mess of the habanero pineapple juice that I received as a treat from Misaka-san is an act deserving of divine punishment!!!”

ULJS00354_00006.jpg

Judgement: “……You guys?”

Mikoto: “Uh, Judgement.”

Judgement: “To thoughtlessly use your powers in town……”

Mikoto: “S-Sorry. Now, won’t you also apologize Kongou-san?”

Kongou: “It’s this man’s fault for bumping into me!”

Judgement: “Thank you, you’ve been quite helpful!”

Mikoto: “Eh?”

Judgement: “This man is from a brutal skill out gang that we’re in the middle of chasing right now.”

Judgement: “I’m truly thankful.”

Kongou: “It’s merely to be expected. “

Judgement: “He was escaping so quickly I felt sure I would have to call upon Shirai-san for help.”

Mikoto: (Shirai?)

Mikoto: “Say, do you know Kuroko?”

Judgement: “Oh my, now that you mention it, that uniform……it’s Tokiwadai’s. By any chance are you Shirai-san’s rumored forbidden lover?”

Mikoto: “That’s wrong!!”

Judgement: “Kidding. I understand, Misaka Mikoto-san. You are quite famous.”

Kongou: “Famous? For your name to known within Judgement, does that mean you get into a lot of mischief Misaka-san?”

Mikoto: “W-Well about that. Aha, ahahahaha……”

Mikoto: “Say by the way, have you seen a girl with long hair and a white flower ornament over her ear?”

Judgement: “Long hair with a white flower decoration over her ear? I was chasing this man so I wouldn’t have noticed.”

Mikoto: “Is that so……”

Judgement: “I wonder if perhaps Shirai-san has seen her. She was in the park until I switched with her.”

Kongou: “My, so this is the store where all of the masses do their shopping.”

Mikoto: “Is this your first time at a store like this, Kongou-san?”

Kongou: “Eeh, for things that I need I ask my usual merchant to bring them.”

Kongou: “There’s never been a case where I’ve gone shopping alone.”

Mikoto: “Heeh. Even though doing such things is actually quite enjoyable. If it’s okay with you how about I show you around?”

Kongou: “You’re fine with that?”

Mikoto: “Let’s look at the stores around here while we search for Saten-san.”

Kongou: “Well then I will graciously take you up on your offer.”

Mikoto: “Since Kuroko is patrolling this area it’s possible we’ll bump into her if we wander around.”

ULJS00354_00009.jpg

Mikoto: “With foreign products, it can be enjoyable just to look at them even if you don’t buy anything.”

Kongou: “Oh my, a necklace like this is perfect for Ekaterina-chan. Don’t you think so?”

Mikoto: “S-Sure. It quite suits her.”

Mikoto: (A snake wearing a necklace is it……)

Kongou: “Experiencing the lives of the masses like this is quite enjoyable.”

Mikoto: “Indeed? I’m glad you are pleased with this.”

Kuroko: “……Onee-sama?”

Mikoto: “HII!? Oh it’s you, Kuroko. Don’t startle me, I was just looking for you.”

Kuroko: “Just what on earth is this, Onee-sama!”

Kuroko: “Even though, for the sake of peace in Academy City, I had to endure working even if it meant ignoring Onee-sama’s love call……”

Mikoto: “I-Is that so.”

Mikoto: (I would like to retort to that ‘love call’ part, but I need to be patient for now……)

Kuroko: “For you to be disregarding me and to be together with this girl I cannot stand! KIII!”

Kongou: “My, are you jealous?”

Kongou: “Misaka-san and I are no longer ordinary friends.”

Kongou: “Since our relationship can be described as partners, there’s nothing strange about us spending the day off together.”

Kuroko: P-Partner!? Just who would permit such a thing!?”

Mikoto: “U-Umm, Kuroko. You’re wrong, it’s not like that.”

Kongou: “With the various places we’ve been and the things we’ve done together, the two of us have raised our friendship, and we can now understand each other’s feelings.”

Kongou: “Indeed, for me and Misaka-san, our relationship is already unobjectionably that of childhood friends!”

Kuroko: “Understand each other’s feelings? Childhood friends? What foolishness!”

Mikoto: “Calm down Kuroko, let me explain.”

Kuroko: “I am currently on patrol. I ask that you keep it short.”

Mikoto: (Uwah, she’s in a bad mood)

Mikoto: “Say, you remember Saten-san right?”

Kuroko: “What about Saten-san?”

Mikoto: “We were with her until just now but we lost sight of her.”

Kuroko: “Wouldn’t have been fine to try calling her.”

Mikoto: “She doesn’t answer my phone calls and I’m worried because Saten-san’s been in high tension since this morning.”

Kongou: “Right? Misaka-san?”

Mikoto: “Aah, sure. Indeed……”

Kuroko: “Onee-sama!!”

Mikoto: “But, well, shouldn’t you be glad? Even though you’re busy, I have a friend who I can search for her together with.”

Kuroko: “Good grief, Onee-sama……you really are naive.”

Kuroko: “Well whatever. In deference to you being such a kindhearted person, I’m willing to forgive a little infidelity.”

Mikoto: “What’s with ‘infidelity’?”

Kuroko: “If I catch sight of Saten-san while on patrol I’ll detain her and contact you Onee-sama.”

Kuroko: “Is that fine?”

Mikoto: “Yes, if you please.”

Mikoto: “Now then, Kongou-san. Let’s head to the next place.”

Kongou: “Then let’s get going.”

Wannai: “……Although we’ve searched all the places we can think of.”

Awatsuki: “Are there any other places left?”

Mikoto: “There may be a possibility. In any case we can only keep searching.”

Wannai: “Yes.”

Awatsuki: “Yes!”

Mikoto: “Well then, since there are other places yet to check please keep it up.”

Wannai: “Sure, we’ll contact you if we find her.”

Scene 12

Haaaaa, the single moment of pure bliss that is the fresh strawberry cream crepe……

ULJS00354_00011

Mikoto: “Though we came all the way to the plaza, I wonder if Saten-san is here.”

Kongou: “Although it can be described with just the word plaza, it’s quite a lot to search.”

Mikoto: “The crepe seller’s cart is just over there so let’s consult with him for a bit about it.”

Mikoto: “Huh? Uiharu-san?”

Uiharu: “Uwawawawa, Misaka-san!? Why are in this sort of place!?”

Mikoto: “Umm, we came here looking for Saten-san, have you seen her by any chance? We can’t reach her by cell.”

Uiharu: “Saten-san is it? I haven’t seen her—”

Uiharu: “I’m also a bit busy, so with the exception of Judgment, I’ve disabled all calls……”

Mikoto: “So that’s why you didn’t answer you cell. Hm∼, just where did Saten-san go I wonder.”

Uiharu: “Did something happen to Saten-san?”

Mikoto: “Hm∼, sort of.”

Mikoto: “We were talking about various things at the family restaurant, and then her curiosity got stimulated and she ran out and left.”

Kongou: “She was in quite the unusual state, and so we have been searching for her.”

Uiharu: “Ah, hello Kongou-san. So Kongou-san, you have also been searching for Saten-san then.”

Kongou: “Affirmative, I could not overlook how worried Misaka-san is about this.”

Uiharu: (It would be better if I didn’t inform Shirai-san about this……)

Mikoto: “Do you perhaps have an idea of where Saten-san might have gone?”

Uiharu: “Indeed, have you been to Seventh Mist? There’s a bargain sale that Saten-san had her eye on.”

Topic ‘Seventh Mist’ Acquired

Mikoto: “We haven’t searched there yet. Thanks, we’ll try there.”

Mikoto: “Do you perhaps have an idea of where Saten-san might have gone?”

Uiharu: “Um∼, it might seem conventional but have you searched in front of the station?”

Topic ‘In Front of the Station’ Acquired

Mikoto: “We haven’t searched there yet. Thanks, we’ll try there.”

Mikoto: “Also, I want you to let me know if you should find Saten-san.”

Uiharu: “Sure, once I’m done patrolling I’ll search for her by accessing the security cameras when I get back to the subdivision.”

Mikoto: “Ah, that may be helpful.”

Uiharu: “But then……well, please keep it a secret that I was eating a crepe in the middle of patrolling.”

Mikoto: “I understand.”

Mikoto: “Well then, we’ll go search somewhere else while we wait for your call.”

Now then, come with me you two

ULJS00354_00015.jpg

Mikoto: “Have you found Saten-san?”

Wannai: “No, we searched in this school district but we didn’t find her.”

Mikoto: “Same here. Even though we’ve tried every place we can think of……”

Kongou: “Considering places we haven’t searched yet, could it be she left this district?”

Mikoto: “Hmm. In any case, for the moment, I should head to the Judgement subdivision and consult with Kuroko and Uiharu-san.”

Awatsuki: “Sorry we weren’t helpful.”

Mikoto: “No no, I should be apologizing. Thank you for your cooperation.”

Kongou: “Then I shall excuse myself here. Farewell.”

Mikoto: “Sure, take care on your way back.”

Mikoto: “Now then, if I don’t get a move on soon I won’t make it back to the dormitory before curfew.”

Yomikawa: “Hey, get a move on already.”

Saten: “……Yes.”

Mikoto: “!? Saten-san!!”

Mikoto: “Excuse me, what on earth happened?”

Yomikawa: “Hm? You know this girl?”

Mikoto: “Yes, I’ve been searching for her all day.”

Mikoto: “Saten-san, where on earth did you go?”

Saten: “I was chasing after……a UFO.”

Mikoto: “UFO?”

Saten: “There was something sparkly white gently floating in the sky and I chased it with everything I had……”

Saten: “I didn’t realize I was standing in the middle of the road, a car nearly hit me, and this Antiskill person rescued me.”

Yomikawa: “I was just in the middle of escorting her to my superiors.”

Yomikawa: “Even though all the surrounding roads ought have been blockaded, for you to have been acting so inattentively……”

Mikoto: “Uh oh.”

Saten: “What should I do, Misaka-san? Am I going to be sent to the penitentiary from now on?”

Saten: “Or else will I be buried in the darkness for having hindered the higher-ups?”

Mikoto: “No, something to that extent……that shouldn’t be the case, right?”

Yomikawa: “After a strict inquiry, you will be given a complete scolding.”

Saten: “Eh, that’s all? I’m not going to be strapped to some gear in an underground machine room or anything?”

Yomikawa: “……Hey, does this girl always give such an impression?”

Mikoto: “Haa, relatively speaking……”

Yomikawa: “Great, I understand then.”

Yomikawa: “If you want to work so much, you can send the entire summer vacation doing voluntary service.”

Yomikawa: “Together with you!”

Mikoto: “EEH!? W-Why me as well?”

Yomikawa: “Doing it with two people is more fun than by oneself.”

Mikoto: “Please wait just a moment. That sort of reason……”

Yomikawa: “You’re Tokiwadai’s Railgun, Misaka Mikoto, right?”

Mikoto: “Yes, that is……indeed the case.”

Yomikawa: “Lately, there’s a rumor that’s been spreading within Antiskill and Judgement. Do you know of it?”

Mikoto: “Eh? There was something like that?”

Yomikawa: “Haven’t there been incidents recently in which cleaning robots have successively short-circuited?”

Yomikawa: “And without exception, in every case a young girl with short-cut hair wearing a Tokiwadai uniform was seen.”

Mikoto: (C-Could she be implying that it was me?)

Yomikawa: “Just recently, there were 5 in the business district.”

Mikoto: “UH”

Yomikawa: “2 in front of the station.”

Mikoto: “Uh, uh……”

Yomikawa: “It’s impossible to specify it’s this girl in particular, but if it’s like this, wouldn’t we be short-handed for keeping the streets clean?”

Mikoto: (S-Shit……I’ve been exposed.)

Mikoto: “I’ll do it, please let me do voluntary service!”

Yomikawa: “Nice dedication.”

Yomikawa: “Now then, come with me you two.”

——After this, Misaka and Saten were made to clean the city until the end of summer vacation.

END?

UWAH, your body is hot Saten-san!

NOTE: Keep track of the value of the [S] variable defined above (it should have a value between 2 and 4 inclusively if you did it correctly). It won’t be used for a while, but it will be relevant again when you reach Scenes 48 and 49.

ULJS00354_00016.jpg

Mikoto: “She isn’t anywhere at all.”

Kongou: “Good grief, just where exactly could she have run off to?”

Ringing

Mikoto: “My, it’s from Uiharu-san. Hello?”

Uiharu: “[Misaka-san, I’ve found Saten-san!]”

Mikoto: “Truly? Where is she?”

Uiharu: “[Right now, Saten-san is in an alleyway 3 blocks ahead from your current location.]”

Mikoto: “In an alleyway? Why is she in such a place?”

Uiharu: “[I can’t see well because a building signboard is creating a blind spot but……]”

Uiharu: “[she’s together with some small children, and they’ve been surrounded by people who don’t look all that nice.]”

Mikoto: “What was that? That’s dangerous, isn’t it?”

Uiharu: “[Shirai-san is also on her way, but whether she’ll make it in time……]”

Mikoto: “I understand, I’m going.”

Uiharu: “[Eh? B-But it’s dangerous!]”

Mikoto: “Dangerous? For who?”

Uiharu: “[Well, for the men who have surrounded Saten-san……]”

Mikoto: “You understand then.”

Mikoto: “Whether it’s Skill-Out or whether it’s some smooth talking lolicons, surrounding girls like that is the worst.”

Mikoto: “I’m going to bring the hammer down on those guys.”

Kongou: “That sounds somewhat enjoyable.”

Mikoto: “Let’s go, Kongou-san. We’re going to save Saten-san and those kids!”

ULJS00354_00017

Mikoto: “Where are you, Saten-san!?”

Kongou: “Can you hear our voices? If you’re here please answer.”

Saten: “Ah. Misaka-san, Kongou-san! I’m over heeere.”

ULJS00354_00018

Mikoto: “Saten-san, what’s happening? Are you okay?”

Saten: “As you can see, I’m protecting peace on Earth!”

Mikoto: “Wah, Saten-san, you’re still in such a high tension mode……”

ULJS00354_00019

Skill-Out (1): “Oi, so now there’s more brats.”

ULJS00354_00020

Skill-Out (2): “Heh, that just means more purses, right?”

Skill-Out (2): “If you don’t want to see a painful experience, you’ll hand over all your valuables.”

Kongou: “How exactly did it come to this I wonder?”

Saten: “These aliens are trying to abduct this child!”

Skill-Out (1): “Just how many times do I have to tell you. We aren’t aliens!”

Saten: “Fufun, you can’t fool my eyes!”

Saten: “With that totally totally out-of-style fashion sense, those awfully long torsos, the extremely short legs!”

Saten: “Your aliens no matter how you look at it aren’t you!?”

Mikoto: “S-Saten-san? It’s true that the clothes they’re wearing are awful looking but……”

Skill-Out (2): “O-Oi, you all”

Kongou: “This was far to reckless. Just what were you planning to do if we hadn’t shown up?”

Saten: “Eh? Umm, in that situation err……”

Skill-Out (2): “Oi I’m talking here! Don’t just keep talking while ignoring us!”

ULJS00354_00021.jpg

Skill-Out (1): “You all, you think that after picking a fight with us that’ll we’ll just let it end with that? Well?”

Mikoto: “Shut up. You think I’d let you touch me so easily?”

Kongou: “In the middle of a conversation was it? Why don’t you calm down a little.”

Skill-Out (1): “Aah? What’s with you guys——”

Spark.

Mikoto: “Don’t touch me!”

Kongou: “Silence!”

Uses Air Hand to blow him away.

Skill-Out (1): “GUWAAAAAaah!?”

Saten: “Ooh∼. Splendid!”

Skill-Out (2): “What the? What did you do? Shit, you’re espers!!”

Skill-Out (2): Shit, we’ll remember this! Let’s get out of here you guys!!”

Boy: “Eh……? Just now, did you Onee-chan’s just beat those guys by any chance?”

Saten: “Thaaat’s right! Those aliens’ plot was vanquished before the power of justice!”

Boy: “……Is this Onee-chan okay?”

Mikoto: “Maybe not completely okay……ahaha.”

Boy: “Besides, I didn’t say a single word beforehand about needing to be helped.”

Mikoto: “I see. I appologize for getting involved on my own.”

Boy: “……If only I could have used my ability as well.”

Mikoto: “…………”

Kongou: “Now then, we have found Saten-san.”

Kongou: “I will go escort this uncute child to a safe place.”

Saten: “Ah, then I’ll come with you.”

Kongou: “I alone am sufficient. If you’re there some unexpected turmoil may occur.”

Saten: “Oh my, so harsh.”

Kongou: “Misaka-san, please take care of here.”

Kongou: “I’ll contact Wannai-san’s group so don’t worry about them.”

Mikoto: “Thank you. I’ll have to thank those two as well later.”

Kongou: “Well then, this is it for me. Good day to you. Come now, we’re leaving.”

Boy: “Say, Onee-chan!”

Saten: “What’s up?”

Boy: “Thanks for saving me.”

Saten: “Oohh, you should also be careful about aliens!”

Saten: “See you two some other time then.”

Mikoto: “Let’s head back ourselves.”

Saten: “What are you saying, Misaka-san? The search for the UFO will continue from here!”

Mikoto: “Eh, we’re still continuing that conversation?”

Saten: “Naturally!”

Saten: “As a result of my going around questioning Judgement members who were walking around here, I have obtained some interesting information.”

Mikoto: “I-Indeed……I’ll ask just in case, but what kind of interesting information is it?”

Saten: “According to what all the Judgement members said, at present Antiskill has been entrusted with an pressing big job.”

Saten: “So, all of their other typical jobs have been handed over to Judgement.”

Mikoto: “I understand. So the students of Judgement have been acting as substitutes for Antiskill.”

Saten: “It appears Judgement has been made responsible for dealing with traffic accidents and such as well as blockading roads, which they aren’t experienced in doing.”

Mikoto: “I see. So thus explains city’s tense atmosphere……”

Mikoto: (……Even though she was acting so suspiciously, how was she able to get them to confess so completely?)

Saten: “What’s the matter, nyah?”

Mikoto: “I-It’s nothing at all.”

Mikoto: “However, just what kind of pressing big job would require that they gather all of Antiskill?”

Saten: “Indeed! That’s exactly the question! Don’t you think it’s suspicious? It’s suspicious, right? No, it is suspicious!”

Mikoto: “I-I don’t think it’s quite that suspicious.”

Saten: “Therefore it must be a UFO!! Handshakes with aliens, going to Mars, abducting cows, and sukiyaki!!” {TN: Sukiyaki=similar to beef vegetable stir fry}

Saten: “There will invariably be crop circles, ears of wheat that have been blown down, outbreaks of locusts, and tsukudani!!” {TN: Tsukudani=preserved food boiled in soy}

Mikoto: “S-Saten-san?”

Saten: “Look Misaka-san, there are UFOs flying over our heads!! We need to hurry and catch them!!”

Mikoto: “Ah, wait just a minute.”

Mikoto: “UWAH, your body is hot Saten-san! This is bad. Perhaps she has sunstroke.”

Saten: “Hm∼, it’s been extremely hot since this morning. An alien’s secret weapon, nyah?”

Mikoto: “First of all, I need to take you somewhere cool.”


Scene 15

Nice to see you, Onee-sama. Nevertheless it is quite hot.

ULJS00354_00000.jpg

Mikoto: “Are you okay, Saten-san?”

Saten: “……Yes. Thanks to you I’m now considerably more at ease.”

Uiharu: “Ah, Misaka-san and Saten-san have been discovered.”

Kuroko: “Nice to see you, Onee-sama. Nevertheless it is quite hot.”

Mikoto: “Much appreciated you two. Seems you’ve been busy as well.”

Mikoto: “To have patrol work during the hottest time of the day of all things, you really drew the short straw on that.”

Kuroko: “The senpais were monopolizing all the morning and evening ones, so there was nothing we could do.”

Mikoto: “Judgement includes those as young as elementary school students. Are those children participating in the patrols?”

Kuroko: “No way, it’s restricted to middle and high school students.”

Uiharu: “Say, are you okay Saten-san?”

Uiharu: “From what I heard from Misaka-san, I understand most of the situation but……”

Uiharu: “Although you were experiencing heat stroke since this morning, you were missing until just now and moreover got involved with Skill-Out.”

Mikoto: “Well rather than getting involved with it’s more like she picked a fight with them……” {TN: In Japanese, the words used for ‘getting involved’ and ‘picking a fight’ are written with the same Kanji.}

Mikoto: “She’s fine. Until just now she was yelling about abductions and horumonyaki.” {TN: Horumonyaki=fried cow or pig entrails. Ironically, it literally means fried hormones.}

Uihaur: “HIII!! Isn’t that quite serious in a number of ways!?”

Mikoto: “Now now, just relax. Incidentally, Kuroko.”

Kuroko: “What is it?”

Mikoto: “Antiskill has completely vanished from the city. And they’ve left Judgement behind as a replacement.”

Mikoto: “Does that mean that some terrible incident in occurring?”

Kuroko: “T-There’s nothing at all!!”

Mikoto: “Truly?”

Kuroko: “There is no major incident occurring that would make Onee-sama reflexively start salivating and stick her nose where it doesn’t belong!!”

Mikoto: “…………”

Kuroko: “I-It’s no use, Onee-sama.”

Kuroko: “Even if you use that silent attack, I have a duty of confidentiality as a member of Judgement.”

Kuroko: “Therefore I absolutely won’t tell you.”

Mikoto: “I see, in that case there’s no other way. I’ll give up on Kuroko and go after Uiharu-san.”

ULJS00354_00001.jpg

Uiharu: “Fuwah?”

Mikoto: “Look Uiharu-san. Isn’t this the vanilla ice extra large parfait you were looking forward to just now?”

Mikoto: “Surely you want to cool off your body after patrolling under the hot sun in this heat wave–.”

Uiharu: “Eh, eh? Umm.”

Mikoto: “If you would like this spoon, how about you open wide–?”

Uiharu: “FUWAAH!!!!!!”

ULJS00354_00002.jpg

Kuroko: “BUH!! Antiskill is busy escorting the a VIP due to the Grim Reaper Kakiko!!” {TN: Kakiko is the name, but the word can also mean a blog post.}

Kuroko: “Therefore Judgement has been recruited as their replacements to run the usual patrols!!”

Mikoto: “Ahmm……so that’s it.”

Kuroko: “I told you, I told you everything so stop it, stop!!”

Kuroko: “Or rather do it with me instead, ahhhhh……!!”

Mikoto: “What’s Grim Reaper Kakiko?”

Kuroko: “Uh……”

Uiharu: “Sh-Shirai-san, you can’t talk about it.”

Kuroko: “E-Even if I know not to talk about it”

Mikoto: “It’s fine, just tell me a little something about the Grim Reaper Kakiko.”

Saten: “You’re talking about the Grim Reaper Kakiko!!”

Mikoto: “Uwah!!”

Uiharu: “Saten-san has been revived!”

Scene 16

……At any rate, it’s another urban legend on the net, huh

Saten: “You’re talking about the Grim Reaper Kakiko, right. It’s an urban legend spreading on the net……”

Saten: “……Or something like that!!”

Mikoto: “……Like that? What do you mean?”

Saten: “Hmm. Generally with urban legends, isn’t it’s the case that you don’t know who said it first?”

Saten: “But for the Grim Reaper Kakiko, it’s perfectly clear.”

Saten: “It’s enough if you simply look it up on the bulletin boards. There’ll be postings under the handle ‘Grim Reaper Kakiko’.”

Mikoto: “In other words, Grim Reaper Kakiko isn’t so much a story on the net, but rather a character?”

Saten: “Correct. This poster would suddenly appear on the bulletin boards and rudely interrupt the topics that were being discussed up until then.”

Saten: “So, suddenly they be like, ‘_____-kun’s wall outlet is accumulating dust. If it’s not cleaned soon……'”

Saten: “‘it’s possible he’ll die from a fire,’ and they just leave peculiar advice like that.”

Mikoto: “Uwah……. You’re saying they use people’s real names?”

Saten: “Yes, that’s why it’s so frightening.”

Saten: “Everyone’s been asking, ‘Could this be some new response system for predicting murders in advance?'”

Saten: “They’ve been cracking down hard on them recently, so even obvious pranks aren’t allowed.”

Saten: “If you do make one, Antiskill is likely to raid your room.”

Mikoto: “It’s too risky for them to be doing it for fun.”

Saten: “Yes. Therefore the true intentions held by the Grim Reaper Kakiko isn’t just about making murder predictions.”

Saten: “They say, ‘This is advice for the sake of saving your life,’ and such……”

Mikoto: “Huuh.”

Topic ‘Grim Reaper Kakiko’ Acquired

Mikoto: “So regarding this Grim Reaper Kakiko’s advice, how accurate are they in reality?”

Kuroko: “If they were invariably accurate we’d have already arrested them.”

Saten: “Which reminds me, there was a theory that Grim Reaper Kakiko is just putting on an act.”

Mikoto: “What does that mean?”

Saten: “That they give out the advice then cause the incident. They can then say that it was avoided thanks to them.”

Saten: “But, there isn’t just one Grim Reaper Kakiko. It’s become a somewhat stereotypical way of trolling people.”

Saten: “It almost feels as though for time being you just call yourself Kakiko just be be a hinderance.”

Saten: “Therefore there shouldn’t be any meaning to chasing after the character ‘Grim Reaper Kakiko’ I would think.”

Mikoto: “I get it. Thanks to Saten-san I understand the basics regarding Grim Reaper Kakiko.”

Mikoto: “——Then”

Mikoto: “Just now, didn’t you say that Antiskill is busy guarding a VIP because of Grim Reaper Kakiko, Kuroko?”

Mikoto: “What’s that about?”

Kuroko: “Uh……t-that’s……”

Uiharu: “Shirai-san, what should we do?”

Mikoto: “Answer me, Kuroko.”

Kuroko: “Haa……there’s no other way.”

Kuroko: “……There was advice from this Grim Reaper Kakiko.”

Mikoto: “What kind?”

Kuroko: “Today there’s a VIP giving an address at the international exhibition hall in the 3rd School District. Her name is Ichizawa Akiko.”

ULJS00354_00003

Kuroko: “The topic of the address in general has not been revealed, but it seems that a sizable number of people will be attending.”

Topic ‘Ichizawa Akiko’ Acquired

Saten: “In other words, Ichizawa Akiko is some kind of alien right?”

Kuroko: “Then, as for the Grim Reaper Kakiko,”

Saten: “Uwah, she disregarded me so easily.”

ULJS00354_00004.jpg
Name: Ichizawa Akiko; Employer: ____Space Research Institute – Outer Space Physics Research Team; Position: Too small to make out.

Kuroko: “The Grim Reaper Kakiko kindly gave some advice on this.”

Mikoto: “What kind?”

Kuroko: “That Ichizawa Akiko may possibly encounter terrorism on the way to the international exhibition hall.”

Kuroko: “And that therefore Antiskill should raise their preparedness……etc. What bullshit.”

Topic ‘Crime Prediction’ Acquired

Mikoto: “So then you’re saying they gathered up all the Antiskill members in the city?”

Uiharu: “If it was an ordinary posting I think it would have been treated as a prank.”

Uiharu: “It’s a different story though if it concerns a VIP.”

Uiharu: “I imagine Antiskill is frantic to avoid the worst case scenario.”

Saten: “So they’re putting in that much effort even though they could just postpone the address.”

Kuroko: “There are several planning to come to this address as ambassadors from cooperative agencies outside of Academy City.”

Kuroko: “They can’t change their plans at the last minute.”

Mikoto: “……If it were postponed or canceled over a prank, the ambassadors would not be amused.”

Mikoto: “Having said that though, it would become a major problem if they ignored it and a terror attack truly did occur.”

Uiharu: “Yes. Because of that the adults felt they had no choice but to enforce a more fortified defense upon the address.”

Mikoto: “……At any rate, it’s another urban legend on the net, huh.”

Mikoto: “Although escorting the VIP is fine, shouldn’t there be someone pursuing the key individual that is the Grim Reaper Kakiko?”

Kuroko: “From Antiskill’s correspondence, it seems they prefer to first ensure that Ichizawa Akiko’s address is a success.”

Kuroko: “They plan to track them down once the address is over.”

Mikoto: “In other words, if the Grim Reaper Kakiko’s murder prediction is actually that person’s plan to cause an incident……”

Mikoto: “Putting aside the level of damage, the actual incident won’t be stopped.”

Kuroko: “That may be so, Onee-sama, but”

Kuroko: “Uiharu and I, during the breaks between the chores that have been imposed upon us, have been pursuing any trace of Grim Reaper Kakiko.”

Mikoto: “……Just the two of you?”

Uiharu: “There are a reasonable number of people in Judgement who feel the same way.”

Uiharu: “We feel it be best if the the Grim Reaper Kakiko’s location is discovered quickly.”

Uiharu: “We’ve been in contact with such people through the net.”

Kuroko: “That said the amount of work is tremendous, so we haven’t been able to meet up in person.”

Ringing

Kuroko: “Speaking of the devil.”

Mikoto: “Who is it?”

Kuroko: “A member of the Grim Reaper Kakiko investigation team, Atatsu Chiyo-senpai. Excuse me for a moment——Hello?”

Uiharu: “For Atatsu-senpai to be calling, I think it’s possible there’s been some development.”

Uiharu: “I sorry, but with this we will be……”

Mikoto: “Wait.”

Mikoto: “That investigation team, couldn’t they always use some more people?”

Kuroko: “Onee-sama……you’re trying to poke your head into something unrelated to you once again……”

Kuroko: “No, it’s useless to say anything. I understand. I understand completely.”

Mikoto: “Hey, listen Kuroko.”

Mikoto: “The prediction of this Grim Reaper Kakiko person, it’s possible it’s just a simple prank.”

Mikoto: “But, during the Ekomichi Rampage Incident, those guys were being manipulated by the nonexistent Ishigaki Miho.”

Mikoto: “It’s possible the same thing is happening this time.”

Mikoto: “For both the attackers and those being attacked, we have to stop it before it comes to that.”

Saten: “Me too! Can I cooperate with you guys as well. Such a thing can’t be permitted to happen again!”

Kuroko: “Onee-sama and Saten-san……I understand how you two feel.”

Kuroko: “I will discuss with Atatsu-senpai if you two can join the investigation team.”


Scene 17

In recognition of her achievements, she has been granted the authority to investigative independently.

ULJS00354_00005

Kuroko: “Yes, that’s right. These two wish to cooperate in the Grim Reaper Kakiko investigation……Yes.”

Saten: “It’s dragging on considerably. It’s as though volunteers are unnecessary.”

Mikoto: “Kuroko, may I speak to this Atatsu-san? I’ll negotiate directly.”

Kuroko: “Let’s see, to put it on speaker……it’s this button.”

Atatsu: “[Volunteer helpers huh. Well, we can’t have too much assistance but……]”

Atatsu: “[……Could these people be someone on the Grim Reaper Kakiko’s side?]”

Kuroko: “No way! They’re my friends. The likelihood of that is ten-thousand to one, no a hundred-million to one.”

Kuroko: “I understand you’re being discreet, but I can offer my personal assurance in this case.”

Atatsu: “[If Shirai-san is willing to say something to that degree, there shouldn’t be any issues in their reliability.]”

Mikoto: “Ah my bad. I also heard you since you’re on speakerphone.”

Atatsu: “[S-Sorry about that.]”

Mikoto: “Not at all. Such a cautious individual is reassuring.”

Mikoto: “So she’s the leader if the Grim Reaper Kakiko investigation team. Is she some kind of big wig within Judgement?”

Uiharu: “Misaka-san, you don’t know about Atatsu-senpai?”

Mikoto: “Eh? I-I don’t her but……”

Kuroko: “If we’re speaking of Atatsu Chiyo, she, having often resolved difficult cases, is a super elite within Judgement.”

Saten: “Hee, that’s quite amazing.”

Uiharu: “Just wait a moment. Right now, I’ll show you Atatsu-senpai’s records from Judgement’s database.”

Uiharu: “So then, have a look. Her personal history is repeatedly filled will brilliant achievements!”

Saten: “I don’t quite understand it, but there really is quite a lot written in her personal history.”

Uiharu: “She’s already what you would call a ‘living legend’.”

Kuroko: “For Atatsu-senpai, in recognition of her achievements, she has been granted the authority to investigative independently.”

Mikoto: “I see, so that’s why she started up the Grim Reaper Kakiko investigation team.”

Topic ‘Atatsu Chiyo’ Acquired

Atatsu: “[Well that’s enough talking about me. I wonder if it’d be fine if we returned to the previous topic.]”

Kuroko: “Of course.”

Atatsu: “[Well then, this may be sudden but could you head to the 7th School’s District’s Internet Cafe Savanna?]”

Atatsu: “[You’re the ones who are closest. From what we discovered on their server’s bulletin board, that place is quite suspicious.]”

Uiharu: “Did they not use a proxy server or anything?”

Atatsu: “[Even if they did, there are many ways of investigating regardless. Moreover, to start with……]”

Atatsu: “[Isn’t it the case that the Grim Reaper Kakiko uses a different technique because murder predictions are easily exposed?]”

Mikoto: “Understood. So what is it we should investigate there?”

Atatsu: “[The advice about Ichizawa Akiko was posted three days ago.]”

Atatsu: “[Therefore, if we consider it sensibly, I don’t think that Kakiko is currently there.]”

Atatsu: “[For the time being, it should be appropriate to review the security camera footage but……]”

Kuroko: “If the culprit is making regular use of that store, this may be a perfect chance to detain them.”

Atatsu: “[Since we want to know whether the Kakiko has been transmitting from there, that generally means investigating each personal computer and router.]”

Atatsu: “[When you’ve finished specifying the machine, contact forensics so someone with psychometry can take over.]”

Uiharu: “But when it comes to the computers in a net cafe, they’re used by several tens of people a day.”

Atatsu: “[This is just to be certain, okay. We have to do everything we can.]”

Uiharu: “Understood.”

Atatsu: “[That’s all I have to communicate. Report to me if you learn anything.]”

Atatsu: “[Oh that right. I said it just before, but you can contact me at——]”

Kuroko: “Understood. We should call your direct number, right?”

Saten: “Direct number?”

Atatsu: “[Saying that it’s a voluntary investigation may sound fine, but the short of it is that it’s unofficial.]”

Atatsu: “[Since it’ll be troublesome if it were to come out prematurely, I want you to contact me directly at my desk at the branch office.]”

Uiharu: “Roger that.”

Atatsu: “[Well then, until next time.]”

Mikoto: “Hmm, so Atatsu-san herself doesn’t move from her own personal inquiry department.”

Mikoto: “I guess she’s like the Judgement version of an armchair detective.”

Uiharu: “Since she resolves incidents by doing that, Atatsu-senpai is truly amazing∼”

Kuroko: “Now then, that’s enough chattering. Let’s make our way to the scene.”

Mikoto: “Right, the internet cafe Savanna.”


Scene 18

Everyone wants to investigate together with Misaka-san

Uiharu: “This is the internet cafe that Atatsu-senpai told us about.”

Topic ‘Net Cafe Savanna’ Acquired

Kuroko: “KEHO KEHO. At any rate the atmosphere is quite bad……I can’t imagine just what is so enjoyable about a place like this.”

Kuroko: “Let’s finish investigating this place promptly.”

Kuroko: “The clerk-san over there, if I may bother you for a minute. We’re with Judgement.”

Uiharu: “We’ve noticed traces that someone who may be related to a certain incident has been making postings on the net from this shop.”

Uiharu: “We would like permission to check over the terminal records.”

Saten: “Ooh, those two are kind of cool. They’re acting as expected of Judgement, or something like that.”

Mikoto: “Saten-san, you should probably not say that to Uiharu-san. It would surely depress her.”

Saten: “Ehh, but my intention was to praise her.”

Mikoto: “It makes it sound as though she normally isn’t very Judgement-like.”

Saten: “Isn’t that how it truly is though?”

Mikoto: “Ahaha, you’re quite harsh Saten-san.”

Kuroko: “We’ve taken the security camera records as well. Uiharu, can you run the playback on the monitor?”

Uiharu: “Yes, I’ll play it now.”

Mikoto: “I see……huh, is this all the camera recorded?”

Kuroko: “The clip is of the front entrance, and this one is of the back entrance. These are the only ways in and out of the store.”

Mikoto: “With just this we can’t know who was using which table.”

Saten: “It’s because nowadays net cafes are even used as temporary lodging facilities I guess.”

Saten: “If they places cameras in every corner of the shop it would raise questions about privacy.”

Mikoto: “How inconvenient……what should we do Kuroko?”

Kuroko: “U∼m. For the moment, I can pose the question to Atatsu-senpai when I report this to her.”

Kuroko: “Hello? May I please speak to Atatsu-senpai? This is Shirai from the 177th subdivision.”

Mikoto: “It feels a little like they’d give out the security camera data and terminal records if you just asked.”

Uiharu: “Yes, it did feel that way.”

Mikoto: “Is it typical for them to cooperate like this with students like us?”

Uiharu: “It’s possible it was transmitted over the adult’s network.”

Uiharu: “The information about Judgement’s authority being temporarily enhanced that is……”

Saten: “It seems she got through to Atatsu-san by phone.”

Kuroko: “……To summarize, we’ve hit a deadlock here. Going forward, how ought we continue the investigation?”

Atatsu: “[In that case, you should investigate all of them.]”

Atatsu: “[There are cameras showing them entering and leaving.]”

Atatsu: “[Therefore, it ought to have recorded the faces of everyone and the times they arrived and departed.]”

Atatsu: “[There’s no choice but to go through them all.]”

Mikoto: “Umm, can I say something real quick?”

Atatsu: “[Misaka-san is it? Go ahead.]”

Mikoto: “Is that truly alright? That is, it’s certain we will reach the right answer after spending enough time on it.”

Mikoto: “However, the limit in which to identify the Grim Reaper Kakiko is already approaching.”

Atatsu: “[The Grim Reaper Kakiko isn’t a fool.]”

Atatsu: “[Even if it did gain access from a terminal outside of its home, I don’t believe it would have left any trace.]”

Uiharu: “What do you mean by that?”

Atatsu: “[To avoid having their face seen by the cameras, I wonder if perhaps they wore sunglasses or a mask. And gloves as well.]”

Atatsu: “[I told you to investigate the machines just before, but if you were aware that you were doing something that you ought to feel guilty about, what would you do?]”

Kuroko: “Let me see, to start with I think it would be common sense to take countermeasures against psychometry.”

Atatsu: “[Yeah, like spreading oil on one’s palms or wearing large oven mitts whenever you handle something……]”

Atatsu: “[makes it harder to read residual information, or so says a report that I’ve seen.]”

Atatsu: “[……Of course, it does depend though on the methods of the one doing the reading.]”

Uiharu: “But even if they somehow did take countermeasures against psychometry, why would they also wear sunglasses or a mask?”

Uiharu: “There are only a limited number of cameras inside the location itself. For such a trick to be necessary……”

Atatsu: “[Do you think the Grim Reaper Kakiko completely understood where all the cameras were before entering?]”

Kuroko: “That is……”

Atatsu: “[If they weren’t able to do so, wouldn’t you imagine that it’d be entirely necessary to apply additional countermeasures when entering the store?”

Uiharu: “AH, could it perhaps be this person?”

ULJS00354_00008

Mikoto: “Let me see.”

Uiharu: “From the security camera, look, it’s this person.”

Mikoto: “This guy is……”

Uiharu: “Sunglasses and a mask, plus a knitted cap. And even gloves.”

Saten: “Putting aside the sunglasses that are just passable, the rest aren’t things you would wear outside under the hot sun.”

Atatsu: “[If his appearance stands out to that degree, it may be possible to track him using the records of security robots and downtown surveillance cameras.]”

Uiharu: “I-I’ll try it!!”

Atatsu: “[Please do, Uiharu-san.]”

Atatsu: “[As for me, I’ll alter the schedule data to extend your leisure time for a little bit.]”

Kuroko: “Please do.”

Atatsu: “[Well then, contact me if you learn anything.]”

Kuroko: “Phew……. Thank to Atatsu-senpai we obtained some potent information.”

Saten: “Misaka-san, what should we do now?”

Mikoto: “Let’s see, to start with I want to clear up the identity of that person in the knit hat.”

Topic ‘Person in the Knit Hat’ Acquired

Saten: “Well then wwe should go around investigating as we pursue that guy.”

Mikoto: “Since we have so little information at the moment, in might be a good idea to split up and investigate.”

Kuroko: “So, splitting up! In that case Onee-sama and I will be jointly investigating as a pair, right!?”

Mikoto: “Who said anything about that?”

Kuroko: “Ufufu, if it’s you Onee-sama, even if you don’t say anything, Kuroko understands how Onee-sama really feels.”

Mikoto: “You understand nothing at all.”

Saten: “In that case Misaka-san, will you perhaps be pairing up with me to investigate?”

Mikoto: “Eh?”

Saten: “That is, to be personally designated by Misaka-san is somewhat embarrassing, but I’m happy about it.”

Uiharu: “If it’s me, I can solidly support Misaka-san’s deductions with data!”

Mikoto: “Wa-Wait just a moment, even you Uiharu-san……”

Saten: “Ahahaha, everyone wants to investigate together with Misaka-san.”

 

Saten: “So then, who will Misaka-san form a pair with?

Mikoto: “U∼m, will you join up with me Saten-san?”

Saten: “Misaka-san has decided! You must have good eyes to have chosen me as a partner!!”

Kuroko: “O-Onee-sama, for you to have chosen someone other than me as a partner, Kuroko is, Kuroko is……uuh.”

Ducks aside

Misaka: “I’m juuust a bit worried about Saten-san today. She did succumb once to heatstroke.”

Kuroko: “……I’ll consent to it then.”

Saten: “What is it?”

Mikoto: “Ohh, it’s nothing at all. Now then, how about we go and investigate?”

Saten: “Roger. Uiharu, Shirai-san, we’ll meet up with you again later!”

Proceed to Scene 38


 

Kuroko: “Naturally, it’ll be me right?

Mikoto: “Well then, Kuroko, you’ll be investigating together with me.”

Kuroko: “ONEE-SAMA! As expected of Onee-sama, you were kind enough to choose me! Kuroko is, Kuroko issss”

Mikoto: “That’s enough of that! Would you like me to scold you for not being diligent?”

Kuroko: “Naturally that is the case of course!”

Mikoto: “If you would please investigate as well, Saten-san, Uiharu-san.”

Saten: “Understood.”

Uiharu: “You do your best as well, Misaka-san, Shirai-san.”

Mikoto: “Thanks. Let’s go, Kuroko.”

Kuroko: “Yes, Onee-sama!!”

Proceed to Scene 20


 

Uiharu: “I want to be useful to Misaka-san.

Mikoto: “Well then, Uiharu-san, I wonder if you could please accompany me?”

Uiharu: “Eh, m-me? You’re fine with me?” {TN: Kuroko’s image literally dropped off the bottom of the screen during this line}

Saten: “Oho, Uiharu, your attitude is quite different compared to just now. Even though you said ‘I’ll solidly support her!’.”

Mikoto: “Indeed, I’m interested in seeing just what you can do, Uiharu-san.”

Uiharu: “YES, I’ll do my best!”

Kuroko: “……Onee-sama, what in the world is the meaning of this? Even though Onee-sama has always chosen me!”

Mikoto: “Saten-san, I’m sorry but could you please take good care of Kuroko?”

Kuroko: “What are you implying by saying ‘I’m sorry but’!?”

Saten: “Then if you could please do the same for Uiharu, Misaka-san. Now now, Shirai, we’re going to investigate∼.”

Kuroko: “Onee-sama∼∼!!”

Mikoto: “Now then, shall we get going as well?”

Uiharu: “YES!”

Proceed to Scene 28


Mikoto: “U∼∼m……let’s see……”

Mikoto: (It seems like it’ll cause a commotion no matter who I choose……)

Mikoto: “Hm∼, as I thought, rather than forming pairs, shouldn’t we investigate individually?”

Kuroko: “Eeh∼!? Why should we?”

Mikoto: “Spreading out an investigating individually is more efficient and we need to gather a lot of information in a short period of time.”

Uiharu: “Certainly it is as Misaka-san says.”

Mikoto: “Well then, let’s all meet up here afterwards. Commence the investigation!”

Proceed to Scene 19

It was a little bit of, that is, a fight

ULJS00354_00009.jpg

Mikoto: “……Now then, before the VIP address, I must capture the Grim Reaper Kakiko.”

Mikoto: “I want to start by gathering information about the character in the knit cap but……”

Mikoto: “I just need to ask someone who would know how to obtain such information.”

Mikoto: “Oh, those guys over there should be well acquainted with this area’s delinquents.”

ULJS00354_00010.jpg

Mikoto: “Hey, I have something I’d like to ask you about.”

Skill-Out (2): “Haaan!? ……Ah! You’re that stupid brat from before!!”

Mikoto: “Before? Ahh, you’re that Skill-Out hack who was extorting money from the child!!”

Skill-Out (2): “Don’t call me a hack! How dare you do what you did back then!”

Mikoto: “You reap what you sow.”

Skill-Out (2): “Shaddup!! The present me won’t be caught unprepared like I was last time.”

Skill-Out (2): “This time it’s our turn to take you down!! Prepare yourseeeelf!!”

Mikoto: “Ah geez, have you not learned your lesson? You lost to me once already.”

Skill-Out (1): “We’ll be victorious the second time!!”

Mikoto: “THAT’S THE CONCLUSION YOU CAME TO THEN—!!”

Skill-Out (2): “GUWAAAAAaah!?”

Skill-Out (1): “Oi, what was that just now……s-shit……run awaaay!!”

Skill-Out (2): “O-Oi! Wait! Wait up! Damn, I’ll remember this!!”

Mikoto: “Ah, j-just a second……! ……They’re all gone.”

Mikoto: “W-What should I do……?”

ULJS00354_00011.jpg

Mikoto: “Haa……Kuroko, have you and the others come back?”

Kuroko: “Ah, welcome back Onee-sama. With this all of us have gathered.”

Uiharu: “We just reported the status of our investigation to Atatsu-senpai.”

Saten: “Misaka-san, did you get ahold of any new information?”

Mikoto: “Uh. Nothing of the sort.”

Saten: “You as well Misaka-san, huh. It was the same for Shirai-san and myself.”

Kuroko: “No matter who we interviewed, they were all so nervous, so we could ask them anything.”

Uiharu: “It seems that a rumor has arisen about ‘Middle school girls who are hunting Skill-Out members’.”

Saten: “Even though I hadn’t heard anything about such an urban legend until just now.”

Saten: “Why would such a story spread so quickly?”

Mikoto: “……Sorry. I think that’s probably my fault.”

Saten: “Misaka-san, what exactly did you do?”

Mikoto: “Ahaha. It was actually quite trivial. It was a little bit of, that is, a fight.”

Kuroko: ……Haa. Onee-sama.”

Mikoto: “I-It was unavoidable. Skill-Out suddenly came and attacked me.”

Kuroko: “I understand the situation, but with this we won’t be able to conduct an investigation for a short while.”

Uiharu: “Indeed.”

Mikoto: “Uh……. Sorry.”

Atatsu: “[I’ve been made aware of what happened. Much appreciated, Misaka-san.]”

Mikoto: “WAH!! Atatsu-san!? Y-You were on the line?”

Atatsu: “[Yep, the whole time.]”

Atatsu: “[If it’s become impossible to conduct inquiries then it’s necessary to reorganize the investigation. Please give me some time.]”

Kuroko: “Acknowledged.”

Atatsu: “[I hate to do this, but Shirai-san’s acquaintances are to be excluded from the investigation.]”

Mikoto: “EH”

Saten: “Can’t we continue to cooperate with you?”

Atatsu: “[Thank you. But based on these results, I will be designating who will be investigating the Grim Reaper Kakiko.]”

Atatsu: “[Well, bye then.]”

Saten: “N-No waaay∼”

Mikoto: (Sorry Saten-san……)

THE END?


Scene 20

Don’t be making light of inquiries

ULJS00354_00012.jpg

Kuroko: “Now then, Onee-sama. Let the two of us pick up the trail of that person in the knit cap and arrest him!”

Mikoto: “Sure. But even if you say to arrest him, we don’t have any reliable clues, do we?”

Kuroko: “Starting with this cafe Savanna, should we make inquiries as to whether anyone has seen the person in the knit cap?”

Mikoto: “Inquiries? Again with such an awful investigation method, huh.”

Kuroko: “Don’t be making light of inquiries.”

Kuroko: “Regarding the target being pursued, Atatsu-senpai surmised that they entered the store after applying more countermeasures than necessary.”

Kuroko: “If her thinking is correct, it’s highly likely that someone around here saw the person in the knit hat.”

Mikoto: “I get it, perhaps it’s just as you say, Kuroko.”

Kuroko: “Well then, let us immediately begin conducting inquires around here. Please just leave this to me.”

Mikoto: “Ah, Kuroko……there she goes again.”

Kuroko: “This is Judgement. Is it alright if I ask you a few questions?”

Mikoto: (Kuroko is diligently making inquiries.)

Mikoto: (With that high tension she has when it’s just the two of us, she’d just abdicate investigations……at least that’s what I kind of thought.)

Kuroko: “Ah, you over there. I’m with Judgement. Is it alright if I ask you a few questions?”

Mikoto: (Kuroko, you being really diligent about this. It seems my assistance is unnecessary.)

Kuroko: “Onee-sama, I was able to obtain two eye-witness testimonies regarding the person in the knit cap.”

Mikoto: “Ehh, already?”

Kuroko: “I was able to obtain testimonies from both the area of the central east 10th School District as well as the area of the central west 10 School District.”

Topic ‘Central West 10th School District’ Acquired

Mikoto: “That’s amazing. I’ve revised my opinion of you.”

Kuroko: “Oohohoho! If I put in serious effort, this level of investigation is easy.”

Mikoto: “Heeh, how reliable.”

Kuroko: “Nevertheless it’s quite hot today……fuuu.”

Mikoto: (Kuroko’s complexion looks kind of bad. Perhaps her physical condition had deteriorated……)

Kuroko: “Oops, I of all people shouldn’t be speaking of heat or cold during an investigation.”

Kuroko: “Now then, let’s continue making inquiries.”

 

CHATTIN’!!

Mikoto: “Hey Kuroko, are you alright?”

Kuroko: “What do you mean? Rather than that, let us please come to a decision on our next destination.”

Mikoto: “However, your complexion seems poor.”

Kuroko: “I’m just a bit worn out from the heat is all. Uiharu and Saten-san are also persevering.”

 

Kuroko: “There’s no time to spare for something like resting.

Mikoto: “It’s decided. Let’s rest for a bit before we investigate the 10th School District.”

Kuroko: “Eh? O-Onee-sama, I can still keep going even without specifically taking a rest.”

Mikoto: “Don’t misunderstand me, Kuroko. I’m saying this because I want to rest. It has nothing to do with you.”

Mikoto: “Okay, let’s go.”

Kuroko: “……Thank you so much, Onee-sama! I will go wherever Onee-sama goes!”

Proceed to Scene 21


Kuroko: “Aside from that, Onee-sama, which should we investigate, east or west?”

Mikoto: “Let’s see……”

 

Central East 10th School District

Mikoto: “How about we start by investigating the east.”

Kuroko: “Acknowledged.”

Mikoto: “……”

Kuroko: “W-What are you staring at so much? If it’s about me you shouldn’t worry yourself. Come!”

Mikoto: “Well then let’s head to the central eastern area.”

Proceed to Scene 23


 

 

Central West 10th School District

Mikoto: “How about we start by investigating the west. That way is closer to here.”

Kuroko: “Acknowledged.”

Mikoto: “However, I forbid you from overworking yourself. You must properly take care of your physical condition, Kuroko.”

Kuroko: “Thank you very much. But Kuroko is fine.  Now then let’s head on over.”

Kuroko: “Haa∼∼. I have been revived∼∼. To tell the truth, I was exhausted.”

Mikoto: “As I thought, you weren’t at all fine. If you’re feeling tired it’s perfectly fine to say so honestly.”

Kuroko: “I don’t want to be told that by the person who behaves rashly whenever an incident occurs.”

Mikoto: “Uh.”

Kuroko: “Besides, I’m with Judgement.”

Kuroko: “For the sake of securing the culprit, I have long since been resolved to throw away my life.”

Mikoto: “Kuroko……”

Kuroko: “Which is why, as soon as I’ve drunk this orange juice, let’s continue the investigation.”

Mikoto: “Sure, of course. Your condition has improved somewhat.”

Mikoto: “Strong convictions and dynamism. Just what one would expect from Judgement.”

Mikoto: “I’m glad that I chose to pair up with you, Kuroko.”

Kuroko: “O-Onee-sama!? Why all of a sudden?”

Mikoto: “What, it’s no good? I was just stating my honest feelings.”

Kuroko: “No, I glad. For Onee-sama to praise me to that extent has made me deeply emotional.”

Mikoto: “Really?”

Kuroko: “Yeah. The words Onee-sama graced upon Kuroko included what may possibly be the words of highest praise!”

Mikoto: (I suppose I am usually quite severe when speaking to Kuroko……)

Kuroko: “Haaa∼∼. Onee-sama, Kuroko is, Kuroko is so blessed∼∼……. ……HAH!?”

Kuroko: (If I display a good scene here, could it be that I’ll able to firmly grab hold of Onee-sama’s heart?)

Mikoto: “What’s the matter, Kuroko?”

Kuroko: “Onee-sama, could you please wait here for a short while. I’m going to continuing making inquiries.”

Teleports

Mikoto: “In that case I’ll go with you as well……Kuroko? Where’d she head off to all of a sudden?”

ULJS00354_00015.jpg

Kuroko: “I’m right here, Onee-sama.”

Mikoto: “Wait a, why did you sit in the seat right next to me?”

Kuroko: “Fuh fuh fuh, naturally it’s because the use of my finishing move has been decided upon.”

Mikoto: “Although I am aware of your ability……”

Kuroko: “When you’re mostly investigating through inquiries, you spend a lot of time travelling on foot. Are you with me so far?”

Mikoto: “Uh-huh.”

Kuroko: “Inferring B from information obtained from point A, travelling to B to obtain information about C……”

Kuroko: “By doing this repeatedly, the information becomes linearly linked.”

Kuroko: “Reasonably, the longer this line is the most time it takes to conduct inquiries.”

Kuroko: “However! If it’s me, the time spent travelling can be shortened to almost zero!”

Kuroko: “It wouldn’t be an exaggeration to say that every clue is in the palm of my hand!”

Kuroko: “Therefore it’s fine if Onee-sama sits here and waits for the results of the investigation.”

Mikoto: “Eh, but, when you’re in such bad shape, will you be okay using your ability repeatedly like that?”

Kuroko: “Please don’t worry about me. I’ll be returning shortly after completing the investigation.”

Kuroko: “And with that, I’ll be heading out!”

Kuroko: “Hah, hah……this is Judgement. I’d like to ask you a few questions……”

Kuroko: “Is what I’d say if there was anyone here. In the first place, where is this……?”

Kuroko: “I guess I got myself a little too∼ fired up before.”

Kuroko: “At times like this, I shouldn’t panic unnecessarily and and check my location on GPS——geh, my cell’s battery has died!”

Kuroko: “I-I can’t get back……”

Kuroko: “Aah∼∼, it wasn’t supposed to end up like this∼∼!!”

ULJS00354_00003

Kuroko: “I-I’ve returned……”

Mikoto: “Kuroko! Where have you been!? I was worried!”

Kuroko: “Haa, I got splendidly lost……. Did anything happen with the person in the knit cap?”

Mikoto: “…………”

Uiharu: “Just a short while ago, Ichigawa Akiko was attacked. We still don’t know the full story though……”

Kuroko: “W-What was that!?”

Mikoto: “We were unable to prevent the Grim Reaper Kakiko’s prediction……”

Kuroko: “Kuh……it’s because I was too slow……”

Due to the attack on Ichigawa Akiko, the investigation team was disbanded,

and the true identity of the Grim Reaper Kakiko vanished into the shadows…….

That aside, can you lend me your ear, Misaka-san?

ULJS00354_00018.jpg

Kuroko: “This is the central west 10th School District.”

Mikoto: “Since there’s not much time until the VIP’s address, how about we start making inquiries.”

Kuroko: “Acknowledged. ……Huh?”

Kongou: “Oh my, would you look at this.”

Kongou: “For me to encounter Shirai-san twice in one day, could it be that you were looking for me?”

Kuroko: “I have absolutely no reason why I would be doing such a thing.”

Kongou: “No, I understand even without you saying so. You can’t help but to be oh so worried about me, correct?”

Kuroko: “Fhun, just who would be worried about you of all people?”

Mikoto: “Thank you for earlier, Kongou-san.”

Kongou: “Not at all, it was but a simple task.”

Mikoto: “How about that child who got attacked by those Skill-Outs?”

Kongou: “I properly escorted him home.”

Kongou: “He was seemingly uninjured, and was entirely obedient on the way back.”

Mikoto: “I see, I’m glad.”

Kuroko: “S-Say, just what on earth are you talking about?”

Kongou: “What we’re talking about is something only Misaka-san and I know, and which Shirai-san does not.”

Kongou: “Could you perhaps refrain from interrupting.”

Kuroko: “O-Onee-sama!? When I wasn’t there, by no means were you doing these such things and those such things……”

Mikoto: “It’s absolutely nothing like whatever it is you’re imagining, so please calm down.”

Kuroko: “……That so. In that case I suppose it’s fine but……”

Kongou: “That aside, can you lend me your ear, Misaka-san? I have something to say privately.”

Mikoto: “That’s fine, but what exactly is it about?”

Kuroko: “AAH, Onee-sama! It’s dangerous for someone other than myself to get that close to you!”

Mikoto: “Be quite, Kuroko. At the very least I’m certain that it’s not as dangerous compared to you.”

Kuroko: “Aah, no way……Onee-sama”

Kongou: “Misaka-san, you’re looking for a person wearing a knit cap right?”

Mikoto: “Eh, how did you know that?”

Kongou: “Everyone in town was talking about it. How Judgement was searching for someone wearing a knit cap.”

Kongou: “I have obtained some encouraging information regarding that person.”

Mikoto: “Is that true, Kongou-san?”

Kongou: “Yes. In Misaka-san wishes it, I would be delighted to share it with you.”

Kuroko: “Onee-sama, you mustn’t listen to her.”

Mikoto: “Why? It’s possible it’s useful information.”

Kuroko: “She says information, but at best isn’t it just hearsay she happened to hear while wandering aimlessly about?”

Kuroko: “I can’t believe that she’d have acquired better information then an investigation pro like myself.”

Kuroko: “Of course, I’ll will leave the decision whether to listen or not up to Onee-sama, however……”

 

CHATTIN’!

Mikoto: “Now now, let’s just listen to what she has to say without comment.”

Kuroko: “I see then, I cannot go along with that.”

 

Kongou: “Haaa…

Kuroko: “Oh my, such a big sigh. Kongou-san seems to be quite tired.”

Kongou: “Based on your complexion it’s no worse than it is for you, Shirai-san. Isn’t it surely you that is quite tired? If so you’re welcome to take the day off. If it’s about being Misaka-san’s partner, shall I kindly offer to be your replacement?”

Kuroko: “I’m not tired at all! We’re busy right now, so we don’t have any spare time to spend on your idle gossip.”

Kongou: “Wha, idle gossip was it!?”

Kuroko: “I’m sorry but that’s just how it is. Let’s go, Onee-sama.”

Mikoto: “Just a second, Kuroko!? I’m sorry Kongou-san, since that’s how it is……”

Kongou: “Ah, Misaka-san! Wait! Aah, she already left. Well, I’ll have plenty of additional chances. I’ll just go collect information some more.”

Proceed to Scene 21


Kongou: “So you still won’t make use of someone’s good will. Well, it’s fine. Allow me to continue what I was saying.”

 

Kongou: “In the vicinity of a certain building

Mikoto: “Building…? Say Kongou-san, do you perhaps know where that building is?”

Kongou: “I have pinned down it’s location of course.”

Mikoto: “You’ve gotten me a bit interested. Will you tell us about that building?”

Kongou: “Of course. Allow me to guide you there. Well, let’s head on over.”

Proceed to Scene 24


Kongou: “Someone was seen who may or may not have been the person wearing a knit cap……. That person in the knit cap,”

 

Kongou: “was also wearing a mask and sunglasses,

Mikoto: “That’s him! With the mask and sunglasses! Since he also has the knit cap that makes bingo!!”

Kuroko: “Certainly it does match the image of the person we’re pursuing quite precisely……”

Mikoto: “Kongou-san! Can you guide us to that abandoned building?”

Kongou: “S-Sure…it shouldn’t be a problem……”

Mikoto: “Please let’s hurry!”

Proceed to Scene 24.5


Kongou: “and was inside of a derelict multi-story building. It’s possible he’s dismantling the building for a part-time job. That is the story that I heard. Was there anything in that you found helpful?”

Mikoto: “Sure, thank you, it was a real help. Let us know if you hear any more interesting stories.”

Kongou: “Sure, with pleasure. Well then, with that I’ll be excusing myself. I beg your pardon. Oohohohoho.”

Kuroko: “……That was a waste of time, Onee-sama.”

Mikoto: “Such was the outcome. I won’t criticize Kongou-san who didn’t mean anything bad by it.”

Mikoto: “However, I am a bit tired. Shall we take a short break?”

Kuroko: “What are you talking about? If we do that we won’t be able to make up for the time we lost quarreling just now.”

Kuroko: “As before, it appears there’s no choice but for me the investigation pro to give it my all.”

Kuroko: “Now then, we’re going to get right back into making inquiries!”

Mikoto: “Ah, wait just a minute! Kuroko!”

Proceed to Scene 21


Mikoto: “I’m sorry, Kongou-san. We’re in a bit of a hurry.”

Kongou: “That’s too bad.”

Kongou: “Well then I’ll leisurely tell you about it next time. If possible when Shirai-san isn’t around.”

Mikoto: “Aah, sure. That’s fine.”

Kuroko: “Onee-sama!?”

Kongou: “Well then, I’ll beg your pardon. Oohohoho!”

Kuroko: “Fuu, she finally made herself scarce.”

Mikoto: “Kongou-san isn’t all that bad, but time is precious at the moment.”

Mikoto: “Given that this is a criminal investigation, I trust your opinion as a pro over the opinion of an amatuer.”

Kuroko: “O-Onee-sama……!”

Kuroko: “W-Well then let’s continue to push on with the investigation without pause! Let’s go!”

Mikoto: “‘Go’ you say, but where? Just a minute Kuroko, wait up! Geez!”

NOTE: If you have already viewed Scene 23, proceed to Scene 21

Mikoto: “Hey Kuroko, are you alright?”

Kuroko: “What do you mean? Rather than that, let us please come to a decision on our next destination.”

Mikoto: “However, your complexion seems poor.”

Kuroko: “I’m just a bit worn out from the heat is all. Uiharu and Saten-san are also persevering.”

 

Kuroko: “There’s no time to spare for something like resting.

Mikoto: “It’s decided. Let’s rest for a bit before we investigate the 10th School District.”

Kuroko: “Eh? O-Onee-sama, I can still keep going even without specifically taking a rest.”

Mikoto: “Don’t misunderstand me, Kuroko. I’m saying this because I want to rest. It has nothing to do with you.”

Mikoto: “Okay, let’s go.”

Kuroko: “……Thank you so much, Onee-sama! I will go wherever Onee-sama goes!”

Proceed to Scene 21


Kuroko: “Aside from that, Onee-sama, which should we investigate, east or west?”

Mikoto: “Let’s see……”

 

Central East 10th School District

Mikoto: “How about we start by investigating the east.”

Kuroko: “Acknowledged.”

Mikoto: “……”

Kuroko: “W-What are you staring at so much? If it’s about me you shouldn’t worry yourself. Come!”

Mikoto: “Well then let’s head to the central eastern area.”

Scene 23

Though it’s wasteful, I’ll have to dispose of them

ULJS00354_00000.jpg

Kuroko: “This is the central east 10th School District.”

Mikoto: “We just finished patrolling the area, but there doesn’t seem to be anyone who was wearing a knit cap.”

Kuroko: “For the time being, let’s inquire of those people gathering over there in their free time.”

Kuroko: “You over there, I wonder if I could have a minute.”

ULJS00354_00001

Skill-Out (1): “Aah? ……That armband, you’re with Judgement? What business do you have Miss Judgement-sama?”

Skill-Out (2): “By no means, did you perhaps believe we were some kind of baseball team? You should get lost before I use this bat to smash your head in.”

Skill-Out (2): “Or would you prefer this iron pipe?”

Kuroko: “I only want to ask a few questions. I didn’t come here looking to buy a fight.”

Skill-Out (1): “Hmph, even if it wasn’t your intention, we’re always having a bargain sale on fights, aren’t we?”

Kuroko: “In contrast to my appearance, I’m not all that generous. What should we do, Onee-sama?”

Mikoto: “Let’s see, if I take them at their word, I guess we should accept that lovely bat and an iron pipe that they’re holding.”

Kuroko: “Acknowledged. Well then.”

Repeated teleports

Skill-Out (1): “Uwah!? O-Our weapons disappeared?”

Skill-Out (1): “Ah, our personal weapons! Why you, without me even noticing!”

Kuroko: “Onee-sama, look at these splendid articles those gentlemen from Skill-Out let us have.”

Mikoto: “Thank you. However I can’t handle this many bats and iron pipes.”

Mikoto: “Though it’s wasteful, I’ll have to dispose of them.”

Skill-Out (2): “HII!? Our weapons……they were instantly melted into goop……”

Kuroko: “Now then, all of you men of Skill-Out.”

Kuroko: “I’m just asking to be sure, but is there anything left in your special bargain sale inventory?”

Skill-Out (1): “HIIII!? We’re already closed for t-today! We’ll do whatever you say so please spare us!!”

Mikoto: “Have you seen anyone in this area wearing a knit cap?”

Skill-Out (1): “Knit cap? No, we’ve been in this area all day and I don’t remember seeing that——not at all.”

Mikoto: “Hmm……”

Kuroko: “There are few people passing through here, so perhaps we’d better check some other places.”

Mikoto: “Indeed. For the moment, how about we leave the central east?”

Kuroko: “Aside from that, Onee-sama, which should we investigate, east or west?”

Mikoto: “Let’s see……”

 

Central West 10th School District

Mikoto: “How about we start by investigating the west. That way is closer to here.”

Kuroko: “Acknowledged.”

Mikoto: “However, I forbid you from overworking yourself. You must properly take care of your physical condition, Kuroko.”

Kuroko: “Thank you very much. But Kuroko is fine.  Now then let’s head on over.”

Kongou-san, you watch too much television

ULJS00354_00002.jpg

Kuroko: “So this is where that suspicious building that caught Kongou-san’s attention is?”

Kongou: “Yes, that correct. Look, isn’t it indeed suspicious?”

Mikoto: “What do you think Kuroko?”

Kuroko: “I’m sorry to say this, but to me this looks like just an ordinary construction site.”

Mikoto: “I see……. I also feel that this is a normal construction site.”

Kongou: “N-No way! Misaka-san, look properly!”

Kongou: “Look, isn’t this the kind of place where bad men who start fights would hide out!?”

Kuroko: “Kongou-san, you watch too much television.”

Mikoto: “While some people from Skill-Out certainly gather here, it seems that they all subsist on only cup noodles.”

Kuroko: “Fuh, we came all the way out here and there aren’t any clues.”

Kongou: “……!! Wait here for just a moment you two. I’m going to head over and gather information!”

Mikoto: “Ah.”

Mikoto: “……Given how she’s going around asking questions without being concerned about whom she asks, will Kongou-san really be alright I wonder?”

Kuroko: “As far as that area is concerned, I don’t think it’s necessary to be worried.”

Mikoto: “Though it’s fine if that’s the case……”

Kuroko: “Ah, she’s returned.”

Kongou: “I have good news for you two. I have pinned down the location that person in the knit cap has been coming and going from.”

Mikoto: “EEH!?”

Kuroko: “Kongou-san, lying is bad. It’s a lie.”

Kongou: “It is a clear fact. I heard about it exactly from those bad men.”

Kuroko: “Hooooow very questionable.”

Kongou: “If you’re going to criticize me, why don’t you do it after we’ve investigated the location in question.”

Kuroko: “I understand. I won’t forget those words.”

Kongou: “I shall guide you to our destination. Now then, let’s get going.”

Mikoto: “Eeh, aah, sure. If you would please.”

ULJS00354_00020.jpg

Kuroko: “So the derelict building Kongou-san mentioned, the one that the person in the knit cap has been coming and going from, is around here then?”

Kongou: “Yes, there’s no doubt that’s the case.”

Mikoto: “Hmm……. Since there’s not much pedestrian traffic here, you’d be able to see quite far from higher up……”

Mikoto: “If it’s a place to hide something, the highest point might be the best place.”

Kuroko: “It’s quite possible the person in the knit cap is hiding around here.”

Kongou: “The information I acquired is no lie. He is certainly hiding here.”

Kuroko: “Whatever.”

Mikoto: “In any case, it’s better carefully investigate from this point forward. Both of you pay close attention.”

Kuroko: “Uh……acknowledged.”

ULJS00354_00022.jpg

Kongou: “Misaka-san, it seems like the entrance door is locked, what do you think we should do?”

Kuroko: “Just a, Kongou-san. To thoughtlessly turn a doorknob is beyond careless!”

Kongou: “Oh my, I’m sorry. I’ll try to be more cautious next time I try to turn it.”

Kuroko: “Please never turn it again!”

Mikoto: “Ahaha……”

Kuroko: “Well then, Onee-sama, what should we do?”

Kuroko: “Assuming the entrance is locked, it’ll be simple to infiltrate using my Teleport.”

Mikoto: “Yeah. But it’s possible there’s a trap inside. Besides, if possible I want to maintain the entrance……”

Mikoto: “A single bad decision could lead to great disaster. If we don’t proceed carefully from here……”

Kuroko: “Tell me what you’re thinking Onee-sama.”

 

Kuroko: “Please rely on me at times like this.

Mikoto: “I’ll be relying on you, Kuroko.”

Kuroko: “YES, leave it to Kuroko to unlock the door. Well then, let’s begin immediately.”

Proceed to Scene 26


Mikoto: “Hmm, let’s see……. You’ve been working hard, Kuroko. I’ll be the one to open the door.”

Kuroko: “If Onee-sama says so, then I’ll leave it to you.”

Mikoto: “Now then, where should I attack from……”

Proceed to Scene 25


Scene 25

Of course I was listening to you properly!

Mikoto: “Hmm……seems the door uses an electronic lock.”

Mikoto: “The program has been messed with quite extensively huh……”

Mikoto: “It’s be troublesome if it shuts down from improper handling so I want to save hacking as a last resort.”

Kuroko: “Onee-sama. As expected, in this case my teleport……”

Mikoto: “Be quiet for a bit Kuroko. You’re distracting me. Hmm……”

Kuroko: “Are you able to unlock it?”

Mikoto: “J-Just wait for a moment geez. Really, how should do this……”

ULJS00354_00003

Kongou: “Phew. Roughly 15 minutes have passed since we got here.”

Kuroko: “If we stay in front of the door for an extended period of time, the likelihood of our pursuit target noticing us gets higher.”

Mikoto: “I-I get it. ……Umm, I wonder if there’s some way to unlock the door……”

Kuroko: “Like I said, with my Teleport!!”

Mikoto: “Be quiet, Kuroko! I decided that I would be the one to unlock the door!”

Kuroko: “So stubborn, Onee-sama.”

Mikoto: “U∼∼∼h how should I do this then?”

Mikoto: “……Say Kuroko, I hate to ask but could you go buy me a beverage from the convenience store on the main street.”

Kuroko: “A beverage, you say?”

Mikoto: “It would also be a great help if you took Kongou-san with you. Your choice of beverages is a little strange, Kuroko.”

Kuroko: “Hah? If it’s about Onee-sama’s tastes, I perfectly understand them from beverages until underwear.”

Mikoto: “I’m telling you to take Kongou-san away. Have a little sense.”

Kuroko: “Ha, so it’s like that then.”

Mikoto: “And also, you will erase all memories relating to my underwear, immediately.”

Kuroko: “Y-Yes……”

Kongou: “What’s the matter?”

Mikoto: “I’m interested in what kind of juice Kongou-san will pick out, that’s all∼.”

Kuroko: “Kongou-san! This is a match to see who understands Onee-sama’s tastes better!”

Kongou: “I shall take you up on that! Well then Misaka-san, we’ll be right back.”

Mikoto: “Take care……good, they’ve gone.”

Mikoto: “Now then, let’s settle things here quickly.”

Mikoto: “Hello, is there anyone inside∼? It’ll be dangerous if you stay there∼”

Mikoto: “……I can’t confirm any bioelectricity, so it seems that there’s no one there.”

Mikoto: “Arcade coin, arcade coin……”

Mikoto: “Distance check, aim check……I don’t need some small key to open it.”

Mikoto: “That door……I’ll blow it away!!”

ULJS00354_00006

Mikoto: “Phew. So that was all it was in the end.”

Kongou: “I just heard a dreadful sound, but just what on earth……”

Kongou: “Wait, the door is now a large hole!! How exactly did it turn out like that!?”

Mikoto: “Well∼, since I was in front of the door, a kind person who was passing by opened it for me.”

Kuroko: “……Onee-sama, it was really you who did it huh.”

Mikoto: “Because, I thought that was the quickest way.”

Kuroko: “In the first place what was that, talking about a kind person who passed by! No one would be deceived by that explanation——”

Kongou: “There really are some kind people in this world huh.”

Kuroko: “Wait, you actually believed it!?”

Kongou: “Eh? What do mean by that?”

Mikoto: “Nothing! Nothing at all!! Ahahahaha.”

Kuroko: “……Huh? Onee-sama, isn’t’t there a smell as though something is burning from inside the building?”

Mikoto: “……Sniff sniff. Now that you mention it, there is. Could there be something burning?”

Kongou: “There’s a large number of  jute bags piled up here. It might be there’s something inside of them……”

Kuroko: “This is, there’s gunpowder inside!!”

Mikoto: “Eeh!?”

Kuroko: “Onee-sama, Kongou-san, let’s get out of here!!”

Mikoto: “U-Underst……”

Kongou: “KYAAaah!?”

ULJS00354_00003

Konori: “……Good grief, though it’s fortunate that everyone is safe thanks to Shirai-san’s Teleport”

Konori: “On the other hand, wasn’t it possible that you all could have been killed? Do you understand that?”

Kuroko: “Yes, were are entirely aware of that.”

Mikoto: “S-Sorry.”

Kongou: “I sincerely apologize.”

Konori: “It’s truly fortunate that there weren’t any pedestrians in the vicinity.”

Konori: “From the start when it come to you all, the sense of danger far exceeds normal situations. Due to this, from now on……”

Mikoto: “Haaaa……I wonder how much longer Konori-senpai’s lecturing will continue……”

Kuroko: “I estimate that it’ll continue for another 3 hours.”

Kongou: “No way……I’m already at my limit.”

Konori: “Hey, are you listening to what I’m saying?”

Mikoto: “Y-Yes.”

Kuroko: “Of course I was listening to you properly!”

Konori: “In any case, your independent investigation of the Grim Reaper Kakiko is to be completely suspended!”

Mikoto: “EEH!?”

Konori: “Until the end of summer vacation, you will do voluntary service everyday and submit a 700 page written apology!”

Kuroko: “N-No way!”

Konori: “Any complaints?”

Mikoto: “……None.”

Thus the search for the Grim Reaper Kakiko was suspended…….

THE END?


Scene 26

If not for my power, this door would not open forevermore

Mikoto: “Kuroko, I think I understand, but don’t suddenly take action by charging in using Teleport.”

Mikoto: “Firstly, let’s carefully check to see if it’s possible to open the door from the outside.”

Kuroko: “So we’ll keep Teleporting as a last resort then. Understood.”

Kongou: “Wait just a moment. If we’re going to try opening it from the outside, then I shall cooperate as well.”

Kuroko: “Muh, Onee-sama has already decided that I shall be the one to unlock the door.”

Kuroko: “Could you just obediently stay over there, Kongou-san?”

Kongou: “No, if not for my power, this door would not open forevermore.”

Kongou: “You should just relax over there without overworking yourself, Shirai-san.”

Kuroko: “I alone am fine!”

Kongou: “My, such a stubborn person. It’s fine though, since I will unlock the door sooner than you.”

Kuroko: “W-What was that!? Kuh, if that’s how it is then I won’t lose!!”

Kuroko: “Kongou-san, I will absolutely unlock the door before you do.”

Kongou: “Fine then. I accept this challenge of yours.”

Kuroko: “Well then, let the match begin!!”

ULJS00354_00007

Kuroko: “So……this door, it’s a one door-two locks.” {TN: ‘One door-two locks’ was in English for some reason.}

Kongou: “To have such a solid lock on an abandoned building, as expected it’s likely something’s up.”

Kuroko: “Yeah, and in addition it’s possible some special device has been attached to the door.”

Kuroko: “Kongou-san, can move away from here for a second?”

Kongou: “It’s you, Shirai-san, who should step back. You’re hindering the investigation.”

Kuroko: “I could say the exact same thing about you.”

Kongou: “What’d you say?”

Kuroko: “What was that?”

Kongou: “Shirai-san, take you hand off of the doorknob.”

Kuroko: “Kongou-san is the one who should let go.”

Kuroko: “Like this, we look like a pair of newlyweds peacefully  unlocking the doorknob to their new home!”

Kongou: “MAAAH!? Me and Shirai-san, newlyweds? I-I absolutely refuse such a thing!”

Kuroko: “That’s why you should withdraw from here. I will surely be the one to be wed to Onee-sama!”

Mikoto: “Surely not, surely not.”

Mikoto: (Haah. I can’t leave this to the two of them.)

Mikoto: “Hm, what do we have here? Though it’s painted the same color as the wall……a switch?”

Mikoto: “It’s in a strange place to be an intercom. There’s signs it’s been used often……”

Mikoto: “Having said that, I wonder if it’s okay to push it. Hm∼∼∼, let’s just push it.”

Kuroko: “Eh?”

Kongou: “That sound just now……”

Mikoto: “It’s as you thought, this here is the door’s hidden switch.”

Mikoto: “Kuroko, Kongou-san, let’s go.”

Kuroko: “Eh, aah……y-yes……”

Kongou: “In the end it was Misaka-san who unlocked it.”

Kuroko: “So it seems. What on earth were Kuroko’s troubles……”

Mikoto: “Now now, it’s fine so long as it’s open. Let’s call Uiharu-san and Saten-san.”

ULJS00354_00008

Kongou: “Hmmn……this building, this is a stronghold for ruffians?”

Kuroko: “So it seems.”

Kongou: “Suu……”

Kongou: “Speaking to all ruffians! If you are hiding here please obediently show yourselves!”

Kongou: “Since I, Kongou Mitsuko, have come, already——mguh, mguguuh!”

Mikoto: “Just, just a moment, Kongou-san!? You’re just going to suddenly shout something?”

Kuroko: “What will we do if the person in the knit hat were to notice!?”

Kongou: “……Puha”

Kongou: “Why is it necessary for us to enter by stealth? Aren’t we on the side of justice?”

Kuroko: “While that may be the case.”

Kongou: “On top of openly giving one’s name, I think we ought to give the them chance to surrender.”

Mikoto: “Hmm. I think what Kongou-san is saying sounds well reasoned.”

Mikoto: “However, our current opponent is one who used urband legends to disseminate a prediction about a terror attack.”

Mikoto: “We ought to consider that from the start this isn’t an opponent that can be understood with well reasoned arguments.”

Kuroko: “Besides, we received instructions from Atatsu-senapi to officially investigate.”

Kuroko: “Wouldn’t it be inexcusable if, due to your breaking in and introducing yourself with a loud voice, he inadvertently escaped?”

Kongou: “Nevertheless, as someone who walks the path of a noble, I refuse to behave like that to outwit the opponent.”

Mikoto: “T-Then in that case, how about we handle those places that require stealth?”

Mikoto: “It’s fine if Kongou-san waits for a report on the outcome of the great plan.”

Kongou: “Fumu, I see……you’re saying that as someone who stands above, it’s necessary to make decisions with a capricious mind.”

Mikoto: “Indeed, that’s it!”

Kongou: “I understand. I must give consideration to your circumstances.”

Kongou: “I shall immediately step aside.”

Mikoto: “We’ll report later on the outcome.”

Kongou: “I’m expecting a good report from you. Well then, don’t hurt yourselves or anything.”

Kongou: “I beg your pardon. Oohohohohohohoho.”

Kuroko: “Phew, she finally withdrew.”

Kuroko: “After Uiharu and Saten-san arrive, it’ll be the end.”

Mikoto: “Indeed. We should prepare ourselves.”

Mikoto: “There’s still some time until those two get here.”

Kuroko: “Oh my, that is the case……”

Mikoto: “Kuroko, isn’t your complexion a bit bad?”

Kuroko: “N-No that isn’t the case. It’s the same as always.”

Mikoto: “You just saying that while pretending to be fine.”

Mikoto: “It’s not unreasonable. You have been running around in this sunlight.”

Mikoto: “Now that I think about it, we passed an shaved ice shop on the way here.”

Mikoto: “Shall we take a short rest and rehydrate?”

Kuroko: “But, is it alright to leave the scene of the crime?”

Kuroko: “We are understaffed, and we don’t know when the Grim Reaper Kakiko might return.”

Mikoto: “Indeed, in that case——”

Kuroko: “Onee-sama, what are you doing?”

Kuroko: “Huh? A video call?”

Mikoto: “[Hey, Kuroko. Can you see me?]”

Kuroko: “Onee-sama? Why are you doing this?”

Mikoto: “With this the entrance to the building can be seen from your cell phone.”

Mikoto: “Since the battery won’t last, it won’t hold for very long, but if it’s just until Uiharu’s group gets here it’s enough.”

Kuroko: “I see, this way we’ll know immediately if someone comes.”

Mikoto: “Well then, how about we go rest for a little?”

ULJS00354_00011

Mikoto: “Ah here it is, this is the shaved ice stand.”

Kuroko: “Onee-sama, thank you so very much……”

Kuroko: “For you to have put together this oh∼so∼sweet moment of leisure for the two of us!”

Mikoto: “Uwah, my hand, don’t hold my hand!”

Kuroko: “Ahn, Onee-sama is feeling shy……even though no one is watching.”

Mikoto: “I’m not being shy!”

Mikoto: “Or rather, don’t behave in such a stifling way after we’ve been walking around so much in this heat.”

Kuroko: “You’re saying such unkind things, huh……”

Mikoto: “Don’t say such worthless things, let’s hurry up and order. Hmm, which flavor……”

Mikoto: “I’ll have strawberry……and you, Kuroko?”

Kuroko: “I shall also have the same as Onee-sama……HAH!”

Mikoto: “Mm?”

Kuroko: (Wait a moment, Kuroko……!)

Kuroko: (The mistake of ordering the same flavor, are you really going to make the same mistake again……!?)

Kuroko: (That scene you experienced on that day……did you forget about that tragedy!?)

ULJS00354_00013.jpg

Kuroko: (Next to me who had ordered the same strawberry flavor as Onee-sama, Saten-san who had ordered lemon……)

ULJS00354_00014

Kuroko: (Calling it c-c-comparing of flavors, she shared an in-i-indirect……kiss with Onee-sama……!!)

Kuroko: (There’s no mistaking that this is a chance provided to me by Onee-sama!)

Kuroko: (This time for certain I shall accomplish my revenge when there is no other temptation for Onee-sama.)

Mikoto: “Say Kuroko? Are you going to order?”

Mikoto: “Hmm, I guess it’s fine just to order one for her. Excuse me, one more strawberry……”

Kuroko: “Wait just a moment!!”

Mikoto: “Wah!?”

Kuroko: “S-Sorry but nothing like strawberry for me! F-For me, yes, the Blue Hawaii!”

Mikoto: “……I don’t really get it, but sure. Excuse me, with that strawberry, add a Blue Hawaii.”

Mikoto: “Here, Kuroko’s portion.”

Kuroko: “T-Thank you very much.”

ULJS00354_00015

Kuroko: “You alwaaays get strawberry, Onee-sama.”

Mikoto: “I like this one. Ittadakima—su! ……MM∼!!”

Mikoto: “This brain freeze is unavoidable.”

Kuroko: “How improper, Onee-sama. Well then, I as well……M∼!”

Mikoto: “Aren’t you no different Kuroko?”

Mikoto: “Is Blue Hawaii good?”

Kuroko: “It’s so-so. Incidentally, why is it called Blue Hawaii?”

Mikoto: “Who knows……does it come from Hawaii?”

Kuroko: “No way, I’m pretty sure that isn’t the case, although……”

Mikoto: “Now that you mention it, I haven’t had something like Blue Hawaii for a long time……”

Mikoto: “Say Kuroko, is it okay if I have a mouthful?”

Kuroko: “W-Wha!?”

Mikoto: “Like I said, let me have a taste.”

Kuroko: “I-I-Is this alright!?”

Mikoto: “Heh? What is?”

Kuroko: “N-Nothing, w-w-well then, h-here.”

Mikoto: “Thank you……gulp.”

Mikoto: “Yeah, this is also quite good. Well then, here’s a return gift.”

Kuroko: “HAUAAH!?”

Mikoto: “Hm, you don’t want it? Now that you mention it we did eat just before.”

Kuroko: “P-Please wait just a moment! I do, I do want it!”

Mikoto: “Hm……? Well, by all means, here you go.”

Kuroko: “Uh, i-ittadakimasu……!”

Kuroko: (H-HAA……I, with O-O-O-Onee-sama, my deepest desire, an ii-i-i-direct……kiss……!)

Kuroko: (At last……this day has finally……!)

Kuroko: “Aah, Onee-sama……at this moment right now I will be crossing over a line with Onee-sama……!”

Mikoto: “Hurry up and eat it, do you want it to melt?”

Kuroko: “Ha, i-ittada, ittadaki……”

Kuroko: “Ah, eh, huh……?”

Kuroko: “W-What is it, somehow everything before my eyes is getting dark……”

Kuroko: “S-Somehow, I, feel, a bit……dizzy……”

Mikoto: “Kuroko!? KUROKO—!”

…………

……………………

Kuroko: “Hah!?”

Mikoto: “Oh, you woke up.”

Kuroko: “T-This place is……?”

Mikoto: “You don’t remember? You suddenly collapsed when we were eating shaved ice.”

Mikoto: “It was probably heatstroke……good grief, you shouldn’t put on airs like that, though I am glad we quickly came to eat shaved ices.”

Kuroko: “Hah……! W-Which reminds me, what about that shaved ice……!? My indirect kiss with Onee-sama……!?”

Mikoto: “It already melted though.”

Kuroko: “N-No way∼……huh, a handkerchief? It’s cold……”

Mikoto: “I used ice from the shaved ice salesman to cool the handkerchief.”

Kuroko: “T-Then this is Onee-sama’s……!?”

Mikoto: “I’m lending it to you, so make sure to return it afterwards.”

Kuroko: “Onee-sama’s handkerchief as a present……! Kuroko is deeply moved! I will treasure it for life!”

Mikoto: “No, like I said, please return it……”

Mikoto: “……Shit, this is bad Kuroko, we’re nearly late for the rendezvous!”

Kuroko: “Haaaaa……Onee-sama’s handkerchief……aaah……heh, the time? ……AAH!”

Mikoto: “Let’s go Kuroko, Uiharu-san and Saten-san are probably already waiting for us!”

Kuroko: “Yes, Onee-sama!”

If [S<4], proceed to Scene 48. Otherwise proceed to Scene 49.


Scene 28

From here we need to pursue the person in the knit cap, but……

ULJS00354_00016

Mikoto: “From here we need to pursue the person in the knit cap, but……”

Uiharu: “Presently our clues are the information about his appearance, namely the knit hat, sunglasses, and mask……”

Mikoto: “The only certainty is that that guy,”

 

Mikoto: “from this internet cafe,

Uiharu:”Shouldn’t we investigate this shop further?”

Mikoto: “However, there weren’t any traces found, right?”

Uiharu: “The suspect believes that this shop is safe enough despite using it to make postings. Therefore, I think there’s a high possibility he may make use of this place once more.”

Mikoto: “Hmm……”

Uiharu: “D-Did I say something strange?”

Mikoto: “No that’s not it. I was just thinking about whether we could ambush him. It’s going to get hot pretty quickly from here on out. Okay then. Let’s stake out this shop.”

Proceed to Scene 29


Mikoto: “has been making postings……. Which route should we take to pursue him?”

Uiharu: “Let’s see now……”

 

Person in the Knit Cap

Mikoto: “As expected we should chase after the person in the knit cap. After all, wearing sunglasses with a knit cap under the blazing sun like this? It may have been the person’s intention to conceal their identity, but I think it would really stick out.”

Uiharu: “On top of having established the suspect’s characteristics, if we analyze the footage from the town’s security cameras, I think it’s possible to chase him.”

Mikoto: “Sure, well then let’s get going. This is your chance to show your skills, Uiharu-san.”

Uiharu: “Y-YES. I’ll start analyzing the footage immediately.”

Mikoto: “Please do.”

Proceed to Scene 30


 

None

Mikoto: “As expected we should chase after the person in the knit cap. After all, wearing sunglasses with a knit cap under the blazing sun like this? It may have been the person’s intention to conceal their identity, but I think it would really stick out.”

Scene 29

Impatience is forbidden during a stakeout

ULJS00354_00019

Uiharu: “Misaka-san!”

Uiharu: “It appears that the person in the knit cap has made use of this shop numerous times before.”

Mikoto: “Truly?”

Uiharu: “Yes, I just asked the shopkeeper about it, and it appears he comes a few times a week.”

Uiharu: “If we stand guard here, it’s possible he’ll come again.”

Mikoto: “Assuming he’s not aware that we’re pursuing the Grim Reaper Kakiko, there should be a possibility of him returning here before the crime takes place huh……”

Mikoto: “It might be alright even if we gamble our remaining time on a stakeout.”

Uiharu: “Understood. Please wait just a moment.”

Uiharu: “I have linked my terminal to the cameras displaying this shop’s entrances and exits.”

Uiharu: “Since it’ll be difficult to wait here, let’s move to a nearby cafe or family restaurant and monitor it from there.”

ULJS00354_00020.jpg

Mikoto: “…………”

Uiharu: “…………”

Mikoto: “So he hasn’t come.”

Uiharu: “Impatience is forbidden during a stakeout.”

Mikoto: “But if we consider the international conference schedule, I believe there isn’t much time left until the Grim Reaper Kakiko’s crime occurs.”

Mikoto: “As expected, now isn’t the time to be waiting around. Let’s change our plans.”

Uiharu: “From here on out, how about we use the cameras installed throughout the city to follow the trail of the person in the knit cap?”

Uiharu: “Though compared to lying in wait here, I don’t know which one is more certain……”

Mikoto: “It feels like we’re in agreement on this then. Okay, let’s switch our investigation method to that.”

Uiharu: “Understood.”

Scene 30

Going by the footage, the suspect turned right into this alleyway……

ULJS00354_00006
ULJS00354_00017.jpg
ULJS00354_00021.jpg

“……Found him. That aforementioned person.”

Mikoto: “Which way is he going?”

Uiharu: “That way. That is to say……here, I’ll display the areas covered by surveillance cameras on the map.”

Mikoto: “Wah, it’s easy to understand if you display it like that.”

Mikoto: “Therefore, after the knit cap guy went walking up this road he was here and here, which would be where this surveillance camera is.”

Uiharu: “I’m pulling up the footage records now. Concerning the analysis software……I have it on display.”

Mikoto: “Amazing amazing, you work fast Uiharu-san. I’ll follow you for eternity!!”

Uiharu: “N-Not at all. The one that’s amazing is the Judgement database.”

Mikoto: “Don’t be so modest.”

Mikoto: “Being able to separate the recorded data into useful information and ordinary noise, that depends on the person using it.”

Uiharu: “M-Maybe so, but it’s nothing that amazing. Let’s head to the location of the next surveillance camera.”

ULJS00354_00023.jpg

Uiharu: “Going by the footage, the suspect turned right into this alleyway……huh?”

Mikoto: “What’s the matter?”

Uiharu: “This surveillance camera up ahead hasn’t been installed.”

Uiharu: “To be precise, they were installed, but they have broken down and aren’t functioning.”

Mikoto: “So having come this far the trail just ends huh.”

Uiharu: “We do at least know that the person in the knit cap entered this alleyway but……what should we do?”

Mikoto: “In any case, let’s go in.”

However, having turned into the alleyway, there was a pile of junk blocking the road.

Mikoto: “This is, what’s with this?”

Uiharu: “I’m checking.”

Uiharu: “I got it. Apparently there was a dispute between fellow Skill-Outs a few days ago.”

Mikoto: “So there’s this mountain of trash, and also the breakdown of the surveillance cameras……”

Mikoto: “To have to give up even though we were able to chase him this far thanks to Uiharu-san is disappointing.”

 

Mikoto: “I guess it’s my turn now……

Mikoto: “Alright, now it’s my turn!”

Uiharu: “Eh? How are you going to handle this?”

Mikoto: “The same as always. Since there’s no way to advance, I’ll just make one!”

Uiharu: “Y-You can’t Misaka-san! Please be as peaceful as possible!”

Mikoto: “……Yes~. Well then should we clear this junk one piece at a time then?”

Uiharu: “Indeed.”

Proceed to Scene 32


Uiharu: “We can’t advance further than this. How inconvenient. Misaka-san, what should we do from here on out?”

Uiharu: “Please leave it to me!”

Mikoto: “What is it?”

Uiharu: “Though the suspect was recorded as having entered this alleyway, the recording didn’t show him leaving.”

Mikoto: “So he mustn’t have travelled along this road then.”

Uiharu: “In other words……there must be another road that he did travel along.”

Mikoto: “Fumu, so it’s something like that huh.”

Uiharu: “I should expand the area of installed surveillance cameras subjected to video analysis. However, it’s impossible with this portable-use terminal, so let’s return immediately to the 177th Subdivision.”

Mikoto: “Understood. Let’s return to the Seventh School District right away.”

Proceed to Scene 31


Scene 31

Huh? There was a quick response from the server……

ULJS00354_00003
ULJS00354_00024

Uiharu: “Even if the cameras in the alleyway have been demolished, they can’t be expected to have slipped passed every camera.”

Uiharu: “……I’ll track him down without fail.”

Mikoto: “You’re quite enthusiastic, Uiharu-san.”

Uiharu: “YES, leave it to me!!”

Mikoto: “Well then, I’ll brew some coffee.”

Mikoto: (I should pay close attention so as not to hinder Uiharu-san.)

ULJS00354_00005

Uiharu: “Surveillance cameras in the area……he wasn’t photographed by this one, not this one either……”

Mikoto: “You want some, Uiharu-san?”

Uiharu: “Thank you very much. ……For some reason I can’t track his trail on the specified date.”

Uiharu: “Even though such a sweltering appearance should stand out, why can’t I find him……”

Mikoto: “Perhaps he entered one of the cameras’ blind spots and removed the hat and sunglasses.”

Uiharu: “There is that possibility.”

Uiharu: “I’ll check to see if there isn’t a similar character in the footage I was investigating for the past minute.”

Mikoto: “S-Say……Uiharu-san. How is it?”

Uiharu: “Three days ago, five days ago, a week ago, here as well, here as well, disappearing into the surveillance cameras’ blind spots.”

Mikoto: “That so……”

Uiharu: “……However, do not worry.”

Uiharu: “There is no way that he was able to escape from all the surveillance cameras……fufufufu.”

Mikoto: “Umm, Uiharu-san?”

Uiharu: “Places where the person in the knit cap wouldn’t be photographed……in other words places which are in the surveillance cameras’ blindspots……”

Uiharu: “A person going into and out of those……a person who changes his attire……”

Mikoto: “Uiharu-san, want to take a short break? Aren’t your eyes tired?”

Uiharu: “I’m fine. There’s still another two weeks to go.”

Mikoto: “The human eye is different from a camera. You’ll damage your eyesight if you keep watching in fast-forward like that.”

Uiharu: “……Indeed, there’s a difference in the limits between the human eye and a camera.”

Mikoto: “Right right.”

Uiharu: “I see……in that case, it should be fine to use image verification.”

Mikoto: “Eh?”

Uiharu: “I’ll call up one month’s worth of surveillance camera footage, and run the image verification function……”

Mikoto: “One month period……eh?”

Uiharu: “There’s 32876 suspicious individuals.”

Uiharu: “From among those we narrow it down to those individuals with sunglasses and knit caps and those with similar physiques……”

Mikoto: “Say, Uiharu-san. Shouldn’t we take a short break?”

Uiharu: “Just a little bit more. Ah, narrowed it down to 1287 cases.”

Mikoto: “1287 cases……that’s quite the number. As I though a short break is……”

Uiharu: “It’ll be hard to investigate them one by one, but if we use Judgement’s servers we can check them in half a day.”

Mikoto: “Half a day……no way……”

Uiharu: “By calculating out their identity, we can search for if they have an alibi for the day in question. Let’s also borrow processing power from the network in the vicinity……”

Mikoto: “Say, Uiharu-san……? Isn’t doing it to this degree bad?”

Uiharu: “It’s alright. Please trust in the power of Judgement!”

Uiharu: “That’s right, Judgement alone is insufficient. A little from those at Antiskill……”

Mikoto: “U-Uiharu-san!? That’s much too risky……”

Uiharu: “It’s fine so long as it’s just a little bit.”

Uiharu: “……Yeah, so long as it’s just a little bit…………fufufufufufufu……”

Mikoto: (No good, her eyes can only see what’s in front of her……I guess there’s nothing to do but wait for it to finish processing.)

Mikoto: “I’ll just go brew some fresh coffee.”

Uiharu: “Huh? There was a quick response from the server……”

ULJS00354_00000.jpg

Yomikawa: “OY!!”

Yomikawa: “Is the one who brought down Judgement and Antiskill’s servers here?”

Mikoto: “T-This is bad……”

After that, Misaka and Uiharu were severely reprimanded by Yomikawa for 3 hours.

ULJS00354_00003

Mikoto: “U-Umm……hello∼.”

Konori: “Welcome, Misaka-san.”

Mikoto: (Aah, her gaze is somewhat intense today.)

Mikoto: “Say, are Kuroko and Uiharu-san here?”

Konori: “Shirai-san just went out on patrol and Uiharu-san is……haa……”

Mikoto: “Is something wrong?”

ULJS00354_00001.jpg

Yomikawa: “Good, next!”

Uiharu: “……Uuh, next is for the 146th Subdivision……”

Konori: “She’s apologizing to the subdivisions inconvenienced by her bringing down the servers with a written apology to each……”

Yomikawa: “You’ve only written 30 so far.”

Uiharu: “Sorry. I’ll do it faster!!!”

Mikoto: “Say, was it really that serious of a thing that she did?”

Konori: “To start with she improperly monopolized the servers, starting by tampering with task prioritization.”

Yomikawa: “Critical tasks were suspended everywhere, until in the end the servers crashed!”

Uiharu: “Uuh, I’m sorry……”

Konori: “That being the case, you shouldn’t be showing up here right now, Misaka-san.”

Mikoto: “T-That’s so huh……”

——After that, no one saw Uiharu until the end of summer vacation.

THE END?


Scene 32

How about I ask them again∼

Loud clanking noises

Mikoto: “Phew, we’ve made it so that we can advance further.”

Uiharu: “……Haa.”

Mikoto: “What’s the matter, Uiharu-san? Tired?”

Uiharu: “Ah, no. That’s not what it is. I’m thinking about how unreliable I am.”

Uiharu: “Whether it’s being laid back while on duty, or else being useless when it really matters.”

Mikoto: “That’s not the case at all. We’ve only come this far thanks to you, Uiharu-san.”

Uiharu: “But……”

Mikoto: “Everyone isn’t cut from the same cloth; it’s unreasonable to expect someone to do everything by themselves.”

Mikoto: “To start with, if we’re speaking of which of us hasn’t been helpful thus far, that would be me.”

Uiharu: “N-No way.”

Mikoto: “Since Uiharu-san has been doing everything thus far, it should be time for me to show what I can do.”

Mikoto: “Having said that, I need to do something real quick. Can you wait here for a little, Uiharu-san?”

Uiharu: “Eh? Where are you going?”

Mikoto: “I’ll be right back. Well then I’m off.”

Uiharu: “Misaka-san, just what is it that you’re planning……”

Crash

Uiharu: “HYAH!?”

More crashing followed by agonizing screams

Uiharu: “S-Something is happening it seems. I was told to stay here but……”

Uiharu: “Could it be……Misaka-san!? That’s where she went!”

|

ULJS00354_00002

Uiharu: “Misaka-san! Has something happened!? WAH!”

Skill-Out (1): “Ugugu……”

Mikoto: “Uiharu-san. Even though I just finished telling you to wait there.”

Uiharu: “Aah, as expected……”

Mikoto: “Didn’t you say that a conflict between fellow Skill-Outs had demolished the surveillance cameras?”

Mikoto: “In other words, this area is their turf. Therefore, I made a few inquiries.”

Uiharu: “In my opinion though this doesn’t feel like you making a few inquiries……”

Mikoto: “Ahaha. Well pay no mind to their stubbornness. If I fire off 2 or 3 shots they’ll immediately fess up.”

Uiharu: “Didn’t I already tell you to be gentle!”

Mikoto: “I was just gently asking them about a few things! The one who attacked was this person. It was legitimate self-defense.”

Uiharu: “Mi∼sa∼ka∼sa∼n∼?”

Mikoto: “Uh, sorry……don’t get upset over such a thing, Uiharu-san.”

Mikoto: “I obtained some information.”

Uiharu: “Information? What kind of information?”

Mikoto: “The destination of the person wearing the knit cap.”

Uiharu: “EH!?”

Mikoto: “A building in the 10th School District’s center, and conversely a building on the outskirts of the 10th School District.”

Topic ’10th School District’s Center’ Acquired

Topic ’10th School District’s Outskirts’ Acquired

Uiharu: “Two destinations?”

Mikoto: “Either one is a fake, or else both are fakes, though it’s also possible both are correct information.”

Mikoto: “How about I ask them again∼”

Skill-Out: “………………”

Uiharu: “Y-You’re overdoing it, Misaka-san!”

Mikoto: “I wasn’t even being serious at all∼. These guys are just beyond weak.”

Mikoto: “Putting that aside, let’s decide where we’re going to go from here.”

Mikoto: “It appears the knit cap guy went either to the 10th School District’s center from here or to the 10th School District’s outskirts.”

Uiharu: “Which of them should we investigate?”

 

10th School District’s Center

Uiharu: “Umm…shouldn’t we investigate in the center area? It’s closer to here.”

Mikoto: “So because it’s the closer location.”

Uiharu: “Yes!! It’s possible he mixes into a crowd in order to escape pursuit.”

Mikoto: “Understood. Let’s go the the center of the 10th School District.”

Proceed to Scene 33


 

10th School District’s Outskirts

Mikoto: “I think that the place on the outskirts is suspicious.”

Uiharu: “Indeed. The person in the knit cap is avoiding the public gaze, so rather than the central area he’d likely hide in the corners.”

Mikoto: “Yeah. Let’s head to the outskirts of the 10th School District.”

Proceed to Scene 34.5


 

None

Mikoto: “U∼m…. There’s too little material for a decision, so we can’t come to an agreement on to investigate I guess.”

Uiharu: “Did those Skill-Out people say anything else? It’s fine even if it’s something trivial.”

Mikoto: “U∼m……. I don’t really recall anything. I don’t think they said anything in particular.”

Uiharu: “Is that so……. Misaka-san, for the moment why don’t we return to the 177th Subdivision?”

Mikoto: “We’re giving up?”

Uiharu: “No way! I just had an idea.”

Mikoto: “Understood. Well then let’s return to the 177th Subdivision.”

Proceed to Scene 31



Scene 33

They’re giving off the impression of it being the latest fad, aren’t they?

ULJS00354_00003

Mikoto: “Let’s see, this area, you did say it’s behind a fashion-oriented vocational school……”

Uiharu: “……Yes.”

Mikoto: “So in the end it was just a fashion-oriented vocational school!!!”

Uiharu: “There are even people wearing knit caps who can be seen here and there.”

Uiharu: “They’re giving off the impression of it being the latest fad, aren’t they?”

Mikoto: “Kuh, we’ve been tricked!!”

If you have previously viewed Scene 29, skip to Scene 34. Otherwise continue

Mikoto: “Can’t be helped, let’s choose another piece of information to follow-up up on.”

Uiharu: “Certainly, there is that abandoned building on the outskirts of the school district.”

Mikoto: “Quite so. It would be nice if that information wasn’t false as well……”

S=S+1

Proceed to Scene 34.5


Scene 34

……Wasn’t it roughly in this direction?

Mikoto: “Eh!? It’s already this time?”

Uiharu: “We’ve already run out of time for today.”

Mikoto: “Indeed, let’s head back for today.”

Uiharu: “By the way, which way is the station?”

Mikoto: “……Wasn’t it roughly in this direction?”

Uiharu: “Eh, wasn’t it this way?”

Uiharu: “Let’s rely on a navigation system.”

Mikoto: “Yes let’s.”

Uiharu: “Huh? The electromagnetism around here is bad. I can’t pick up the satellite.”

Mikoto: “Eh? Ah, it’s the same for my cell.”

Uiharu: “It’ll be no good unless we head to a major street. Let’s get going.”

——In the end, by the time Misaka returned to her dormitory, it was unfortunately 5 minutes after curfew…….

For the rest of summer vacation, she was ordered to do the dormitory’s weeding.

THE END?


Scene 34.5

ULJS00354_00004.jpg

Mikoto: “Here it is. The building the person in the knit cap has been coming and going from.”

Uiharu: “It feels somewhat ominous……the walls could even collapse at any moment.”

Mikoto: “It seems to have lapsed considerably from lack of use. It would be better if they immediately demolished it.”

Uiharu: “Perhaps they can’t find a buyer or something like that.”

Mikoto: “There might be a back door or something……KYAAAAAAA!?”

Uiharu: “W-What’s the matter?”

Mikoto: “B-Bug!! A bug with lots of black legs sprouting from it!!!”

Uiharu: “Oh, it’s just a bug. I had thought the person in the knit cap had shown up.”

Mikoto: “S-Say, how about we don’t investigate here? There’s no way I’ll believe that someone would live in this kind of place.”

Uiharu: “We cannot stop the investigation just because a bug showed up!”

Mikoto: “Uuh, yes……”

ULJS00354_00005.jpg

Uiharu: “In any case, let’s check if we can get inside. Is this the entrance here?”

Mikoto: “Indeed, I didn’t find another entrance and the windows all have boards nailed over them.”

Mikoto: “Huh……it won’t open?”

Uiharu: “I guess it’s locked.”

Mikoto: “Well, I guess that’s the case. It would be locked regardless of whether it’s being used or not being used.”

Uiharu: “What should we do?”

Mikoto: “Even if it’s locked, we can’t just give up at this point.”

Uiharu: “Well then, let’s try and find some way to unlock it.”

Mikoto: “U∼∼∼m”

Uiharu: “Though it appears to be old, this is a considerably reliable electronic locking system.”

Mikoto: “How should we go about releasing it?”

Uiharu: “It’s a system I haven’t seen before. I might be a bit uncertain……”

Mikoto: “It’ll be troublesome if it becomes impossible to release because we tampered with it carelessly, huuh.”

Uiharu: “The lock itself is rusty,”

 

Uiharu: “and it does seem to be falling apart……

Mikoto: “For this, how about I just break it?”

Uiharu: “M-Misaka-san!? What exactly are you thinking?”

Proceed to Scene 35


Uiharu: “Misaka-san, look at this.”

Mikoto: “This is……a slot to insert an authentication key?”

Uiharu: “There’s signs of an authentication key being inserted and it’s like only the surface has rusted.”

Mikoto: “If the slot is being used, then that means that the electronic lock is functioning even now. In that case there’s nothing we can do.”

Uiharu: “‘Nothing we can do’, so you’re giving up?”

Mikoto: “No way! There’s no mistake that this place is suspicious. Let’s call Kuroko and Saten-san over.”

Uiharu: “Eh, you’re going to call Saten-san as well?”

Mikoto: “Even though it’ll be dangerous since from here we will be raiding the culprit’s hideout……”

Mikoto: “Wouldn’t it be bad if we left Saten-san by herself and the person in the knit cap approached her?”

Mikoto: “Besides, I don’t think she’d remain still by herself.”

Uiharu: “To be sure, that definitely is possible.”

Mikoto: “And compared to if was just the three of us, we might come up with better ideas if all four of us are there.”

Mikoto: “Even if we’re going to use hacking, we should ask the opinions of those two first.”

Uiharu: “I’ll contact the two of them right away!”

Uiharu: “Attaching this building’s map data……”

Mikoto: “Until those two get here, why don’t we take a short break—”

Proceed to Scene 36


Scene 35

I’m underneath you, Misaka-san∼

Uiharu: “As expected, it has to be here.”

Mikoto: “Indeed, even though we’ve been around the entire building once already, there aren’t any other entrances or exits.”

Mikoto: “As I though, we have to break the lock……”

Uiharu: “It’d be nice if we had something like a crowbar or a hammer.”

Mikoto: “Unlike Disciplinary Guidance, we don’t carry such mundane objects.”

Mikoto: “Can’t be helped, let’s try having the two of us use a ramming attack.”

Uiharu: “Indeed, let’s do that.”

Mikoto: “On the count of three then.”

Mikoto: “One two”

Uiharu: “THREE”

Crash

Mikoto: “One two”

Uiharu: “THREE”

Crash

Mikoto: “It’s not opening easily huh.”

Uiharu: “Let’s get a longer running start and hit it with everything we’ve got.”

Mikoto: “One, TWO”

Uiharu: “THREEE!!”

ULJS00354_00006.jpg

Mikoto: “Ouch ouch ouch……I guess we hit it with a little too much force huh?”

Mikoto: “It opened Uiharu-san!! Huh? Uiharu-san?”

Uiharu: “Here, over here……”

Mikoto: “Even if you say here, it too dark to see anything……”

Uiharu: “I’m underneath you, Misaka-san∼”

Mikoto: “Underneath? AH”

Mikoto: “A-Are you alright, Uiharu-san?”

Uiharu: “Yes, somehow……KHIN!!!”

Mikoto: “U-Uiharu-san? Where does it hurt? Are you okay?”

Uiharu: “Misaka-san……I-I can’t stand.”

Mikoto: “I-I’ll call an ambulance right away!”

ULJS00354_00003

Kuroko: “Uiharu has a strained back. She’s on bedrest for one week.”

Mikoto: “I feel bad for Uiharu-san……”

Kuroko: “Onee-sama, what exactly did you do to Uiharu?”

Mikoto: “I-I didn’t do anything particularly strange or anything. I mean we were just unlucky.”

Kuroko: “And then you contacted Atatsu-senpai about the person in the knit cap’s hideout.”

Kuroko: “I was told to pass on a message: ‘Leave the rest to me.'”

Mikoto: “No other way is there……”

Thus, Misaka and the others were dissociated from the Grim Reaper Kakiko investigation…….

THE END?


Scene 36

Ouch ouch ouch……just hurt my buttocks is all

Mikoto: “Ah, mail just arrived. From Kuroko’s group, they’re on their way here.”

Uiharu: “With Shirai-san’s Teleport, we’ll at least be able to do something about the locked door.”

Mikoto: “Let’s leisurely wait until Kuroko and Saten-san to get here.”

Uiharu: “Ah, Misaka-san. If you lean against the door, your clothes will get dirty.”

Mikoto: “Eh, really? ……Wa, wawawa.”

Clanging sounds

Mikoto: “UWAH!!”

Uiharu: “Misaka-san!?”

ULJS00354_00007.jpg

Uiharu: “A-Are you okay, Misaka-san?”

Mikoto: “Ouch ouch ouch……just hurt my buttocks is all. At any rate.”

Mikoto: “Even though it was no good however many times we tried it, how did it open just from me leaning against it?”

Uiharu: “Ah……a nail fell out.”

Mikoto: “Nail?”

Uiharu: “It appears that a broken hinge was held together by a nail. It must have fallen out I guess?”

Mikoto: “I feel like a fool for having earnestly examined the lock and having searched for other entrances.”

Uiharu: “Now now, circumstances aside the door is open now, so let’s just wait until Shirai-san’s group gets here.”

Scene 37

To wish for something that much……

ULJS00354_00008

Uiharu: “We have some time until Shirai-san’s group comes.”

Mikoto: “It feels as though the investigation has been advancing rather smoothly. It’s thanks to you Uiharu-san.”

Uiharu: “Th-That’s not that case, rather I haven’t been that useful at all.”

Mikoto: “You don’t need to be so modest. Leaving that aside, what should we do with our free time?”

Uiharu: “Ah, that’s right.”

Mikoto: “Hm?”

Uiharu: “Would you excuse me for just a bit, since I should go collect some data right now?”

Mikoto: “Data?”

Uiharu: “Yes, things like the blueprints to the abandoned building, the kind of data that may be helpful when we investigate it later.”

Mikoto: “Ohh, that’s reassuring. Would you please?”

Uiharu: “You’re requesting it of me even though I was the one to propose it.”

Mikoto: “I’ve always thought so, but you’re very good at sorting collected Data, Uiharu-san.”

Uiharu: “Is that so? Something like this is quite ordinary……”

Mikoto: “That’s not true at all! Can I look for just a second?”

Uiharu: “Eh? H-haa……?”

Mikoto: “Hmm, it’ll be easier to see if I sit next to you.”

ULJS00354_00009.jpg

Uiharu: “Eh, eh, eh……!?”

Mikoto: “Umph, there. Don’t mind me, go on go on.”

Uiharu: “EH, M-Misaka-san, a-aren’t you too close? Somewhat, a bit, ooooh”

Mikoto: “What’s up?”

Uiharu: “Oooooh, i-it’s nothing……”

Mikoto: “Heeh, in any case this is amazing, Uiharu-san. Your data retrieval is very accurate.”

Uiharu: “This is just from experience, just experience.”

Uiharu: “Shouldn’t you also be able to manipulate computer terminal data, Misaka-san?”

Mikoto: “Well for me, how should I say it? I only search for and collect data.”

Mikoto: “It feels like it’s fine so long as I can understand it, that’s why I wish I could do it properly like you, Uiharu-san.”

Uiharu: “To wish for something that much……”

Mikoto: “And yet you’re always being so modest about it, Uiharu-san.”

Mikoto: “You possess the proper skills for protecting the peace of Academy City as a member of Judgement.”

Mikoto: “I think you should feel more proud of that.”

Uiharu: “Ah, thank you very much……!”

Uiharu: “…………”

Uiharu: “Yeah, that should do it then. I have finished collecting the data.”

Mikoto: “Great, and just in time too. Let’s go meet up with Kuroko and the others.”

Uiharu: “Yes!!”

If [S<4], proceed to Scene 48. Otherwise proceed to Scene 49.


Scene 38

At times like this, only the people of the olden days would wander around blindly

ULJS00354_00010.jpg

Mikoto: “Now then, where to begin our investigation. Would it be fine to question people in the vicinity?”

Saten: “Tut tut tut. At times like this, only the people of the olden days would wander around blindly.”

Mikoto: “The olden days……”

Saten: “This is the day and age where the rumors of an individual spread at the speed of light through the network.”

Saten: “In other words it’s an information war. Please just leave it to me!”

Mikoto: “Saten-san, what are you doing?”

Saten: “Heheheh, I’m posting on this area’s local site.”

Saten: “‘Information Wanted on a Person in a Knit Cap!’, if I report such a distinguishing feature, he should be found immediately.”

Mikoto: “It would be nice if things go that smoothly.”

Mikoto: “Well, I suppose, if he’s wandering around under this hot sun, that may be the case.”

Saten: “OH! It’s here it’s here!! Misaka-san, the response was immediate.”

Mikoto: “Eh, already!? That was fast.”

Saten: “It seems the net has been in an uproar over a ‘suspicious person whose been lurking around.'”

Saten: “Ah, the information just keeps coming. If it’s like this we might get our hands on some plausible clues.”

Mikoto: “And so, what did they write?”

Saten: “According to the latest information, some people saw a person wearing a knit cap in the shopping district.”

Mikoto: “Well then, should we go to the shopping district?”

Saten: “Ah, but there’s one other piece of information……”

Mikoto: “Eh?”

Saten: “Similar to the profile of the person in the knit cap, information has come in about a person in a helmeted cap.” {TN: In Japanese, knit cap and helmeted cap are written and pronounced very similarly. Knit cap is ニット帽 while helmeted cap is メット帽.}

Saten: “Information just came in stating that this one was in the park.”

Topic ‘Person in the Helmeted Cap’ Acquired

Mikoto: “Person in the Helmeted Cap huh……though it is similar, isn’t it unrelated?”

Saten: “Is that really so though? Though it’s absolutely certain there’s a person in a knit cap……”

Saten: “For some reason I feels bothered about this one as well.”

Mikoto: “Is this Saten-san’s intuition?”

Saten: “Perhaps you could call it intuition, or else you could say that since seeing the post I have held a definite interest in this one.”

Mikoto: “Saten-san, don’t forget what our objective is.”

Saten: “O-Of course!”

Mikoto: “At any rate, nothing will start with us just standing around here. We must advance the investigation.

Saten: “Misaka-san, which piece of information do you think is suspicious?”

Mikoto: “Let’s see……”

 

Person in the Helmeted Cap

Mikoto: “From what you’ve been saying that helmeted cap has been strangely on your mind.”

Saten: “Right right!? It’s really been on my mind!”

Mikoto: “W-While it’s not exactly like that…… As expected, the sure thing——”

Saten: “STOOOP! Stop thinking about it!”

Mikoto: “Fueh?”

Saten: “Let’s investigate the person in the helmeted cap that has so captured your interest Misaka-san! How’s about we head to the park immediately!”

Mikoto: “Eh……? Ah…………. Yeah, sure. Let’s head to the park.”

Proceed to Scene 39


 

Person in the Knit Cap

Saten: “Thinking reasonably it would be the person in the knit cap.”

Mikoto: “S-Saten-san is saying the reasonable thing!? Are you okay?”

Saten: “Why are you looking at me with those kind of eyes? Even I was thinking about it seriously. As a user who uses the internet, someone like the Grim Reaper Kakiko, who seems like a criminal who take delight in people’s reactions, is something I cannot permit!”

Mikoto: “Ooh, Saten-san is being unusually diligent. Well then, the person in the knit cap is fine then?”

Saten: “Absolutely. Now then, let’s head to the shopping district!”

Proceed to Scene 40


 

None

Mikoto: “Hm~, which one should we go with……”

Saten: “If you’re that worried about it, why don’t we start by investigating the more interesting one?”

Mikoto: “In other words, you’re saying the person in the helmeted cap. I guess it’s fine since the park isn’t too far away.”

Saten: “If it’s been decided then we should hurry. Let’s go to the park!”

Proceed to Scene 39



Scene 39

……It certainly does look that way

Saten: “According to the information, the person in the helmeted cap ought to be around here.”

Mikoto: “Let’s see, helmeted cap, helmeted cap……hmm.”

Saten: “AHH! I found it, I have found it Misaka-san!”

Mikoto: “Eh, where is it? Wait, could you perhaps mean that person?”

Saten: “There’s no one else that it could be! It’s gotta be them, we have to make contact immediately!”

Saten: “If he shows even slightly suspicious behavior, let’s hit him with a railgun right away!”

Mikoto: “W-Wait just a minute Saten-san. I think that’s the wrong person.”

Saten: “Ehhh, why’s that? Isn’t he wearing a helmet?”

Mikoto: “Certainly he is wearing a helmet but……isn’t that person just an ordinary construction worker?”

Saten: “……It certainly does look that way.”

Mikoto: “It says there’s construction on a burst water pipe. As expected it seems he’s an ordinary worker.”

Saten: “Haaaaaaaaaaaa.”

Saten: “In other words, I ended being taken in by false intelligence……”

Mikoto: “Yeah∼, it’s unfortunate but that seems to be the case.”

Saten: “Kuuuh, even though I thought it was important information due to the strangely suggestive writing style.”

Mikoto: “On the net, there are some people who purposefully inflate the importance of things.”

Saten: “Yes……”

Mikoto: “Don’t feel bad about it. With this we’ve now understood that the person in the knit cap is the likely candidate.”

Mikoto: “There were eyewitness accounts of the knit cap in the shopping district. Let’s go search there now!”

Saten: “……That’s right! The investigation begins from here.”

Saten: “Alright, the person in the knit cap! We will absolutely catch him!!”

S=S+1

Proceed to Scene 40


Scene 40

Though he was sighted here, I guess it’s not certain that he’s here now

ULJS00354_00012.jpg

Mikoto: “Somehow we’ve ended up coming all the way to the 10th School District.”

Saten: “Misaka-san, according to the information on the bulletin board, the person in the knit cap seems to be around here.”

Mikoto: “Fumu……. We did take a quick glance around, but there wasn’t anything like that.”

Mikoto: “Though he was sighted here, I guess it’s not certain that he’s here now.”

 

Click here if you previously viewed Scene 39

Saten: “Uuh, perhaps we lost sight of him due to getting manipulated by the false information about the person in the helmeted cap…….”

 

Click here if you did not view scene 39

Saten: “The postings were made in realtime, but there’s a time lag since the actual sightings.”

Mikoto: “Those eyewitness accounts, do they end here?”

Saten: “The last sighting of the person in the knit cap was in this area.”

Mikoto: “Even the internet’s information has dried up……I wonder what we should do.”

Mikoto: “What should we do going forward? Personally I think we should try to gather information from around here. Or else, do you think”

 

Mikoto: “we should try to get more information from the internet?”

Saten: “Just what I want! To follow the internet’s information wherever it takes us, isn’t that interesting?”

Mikoto: “Rather than interesting, I think it’s the only considerable option. At any rate, the entire volume of information is immense after all. Though there’s also a lot of noise, if there’s a way of sorting out useful information it could be a reassuring resource.”

Saten: “Though I am usually just using it for idle chatting huh. Ahahaha.”

Mikoto: “Somewhere within all that, there’s necessary information.”

Saten: “I see. Well then, let’s solicit information from the bulletin boards once more!”

Mikoto: “If you would please.”

Proceed to Scene 43


Saten: “Umm… It might be more difficult to obtain any new information compared to what we’ve obtained so far. That person in the knit cap was sighted here yesterday…… Therefore the time requirements are further narrowed. As expected I guess we should conduct straightforward inquiries.”

Mikoto: “Understood. Let’s inquire about eyewitness accounts around here.”

ULJS00354_00000

Mikoto: “Umm, I give up.”

Saten: “……We’re stumped huh.”

Mikoto: “I didn’t at all account for getting lost while conducting inquiries.”

Saten: “Since the scenery doesn’t change wherever we go, for us to go back the way we came from……”

Mikoto: “Haa……this is shameful even for me. This is no way to gather information.”

Mikoto: “Geez. It’s only at times like these that my cell’s GPS doesn’t work.”

Saten: “Though this isn’t really my thing, Misaka-san, is there something up with the electromagnetic waves?”

Mikoto: “It isn’t as though we’ve left the effective range for cells or GPS.”

Mikoto: “Though there wasn’t any advance notification, perhaps it’s emergency maintenance.”

Saten: “While you might not notice it normally, at that moment you need GPS∼, it’s quite painful.”

Mikoto: “Umm∼, what should we do……”

If you’ve seen Scene 39, skip to Scene 42. Otherwise, continue with Scene 41.


Scene 41

Misaka-san, is there something up with the electromagnetic waves?

Saten: “Certainly there is a building over there facing the other street……”

Saten: “In that case, since we came from that direction……Misaka-san, I think I somehow figured out where we are.”

Mikoto: “We can return to the station?”

Saten: “If we can make it to a major street I can manage somehow or another.”

ULJS00354_00001.jpg

Mikoto: “Haa, we wasted a considerable amount of time huh.”

Saten: “Since we haven’t gathered any good information through inquiries, as expected should we search on the net?”

Mikoto: “Sure. Rather than lose time by getting lost, that way should be better.”

Saten: “Well then, let’s continue soliciting information on the person in the knit cap from that earlier site.”

Saten: “Perhaps some new information will be posted while we’re on our way back to the station.”

Mikoto: “Please proceed.”

S=S+1

Proceed to Scene 43


Scene 42

(Well, I can’t tell her that we got lost)

Mikoto: “Ah……Looks like a call from Kuroko.”

Mikoto: “……Yes. What is it Kuroko?”

Kuroko: “[Onee-sama, just where is it that you’ve wandered off to?]”

Mikoto: “Where you say……we’ve been investigating in the 10th School District.”

Mikoto: (Well, I can’t tell her that we got lost.)

Kuroko: “[Just a short while ago, Ichizawa Akiko was attacked!]”

Mikoto: “What’d you say!?”

Kuroko: “[Uiharu and I have been called to help with aftermath cleanup. We have to head there immediately.]”

Mikoto: “We will——”

Kuroko: “[The Grim Reaper Kakiko investigation has been suspended for the moment. Please Onee-sama, you both should return to the dorms.]”

Kuroko: “[I’ll give you the full detailed account once things settled down. Well then, if you’ll excuse me.]”

Saten: “What’s happened, Misaka-san? That call, that was from Shirai-san?”

Mikoto: “The investigation has been suspended. Let’s return to the 7th School District.”

Misaka and company were unable to obstruct the Grim Reaper Kakiko’s crime prediction…….

THE END?


Scene 43

That store, it’s the kind of place that’s dimly lit with only low quality surveillance cameras

ULJS00354_00002

Saten: “Noow then, how about we steadily accumulate information, nya?”

Mikoto: “How is it? Was there any new information?”

Saten: “Wait just a moment. Fumu fumu……I see, hmm.”

Saten: “It’s hopeless.”

Mikoto: “What is it?”

Saten: “Well you see, there are eyewitness accounts of someone wearing a knit cap.”

Saten: “However there’s information that the knit cap is white, but also information that it’s light blue.”

Topic ‘Light Blue Knit Cap’ Acquired

Topic ‘White Knit Cap’ Acquired

Mikoto: “Eeh? Has wearing knit caps in the summer become fashionable? No, that not it is it.”

Saten: “So the question is which knit cap to pursue. What color was the knit cap we were targeting?”

Mikoto: “Which one was it I wonder……”

Mikoto: “Wait just a minute, the surveillance camera footage should have been forwarded to my cell.”

ULJS00354_00008

Mikoto: “Looking at it once again, which do you feel it is?”

Saten: “It appears to be……white, but given the graininess of the image, it feels like you could also say it’s light blue.”

Mikoto: “Ah geez! Why couldn’t it have been a clearer image?”

Saten: “That store, it’s the kind of place that’s dimly lit with only low quality surveillance cameras.”

Mikoto: “White or light blue. Which on is the knit cap we’re pursuing……”

Saten: “Being limited by the low quality footage, there’s no use arguing about it here. If it’s like this, we should decide entirely on intuition!”

Mikoto: “Um∼…the white or light blue knit cap……I wonder which. “

 

White Knit Cap

Mikoto: “Umm…… The first impression is white!”

Saten: “No objections! It also appears to be white to me.”

Mikoto: “Well then let’s pursue the white knit cap.”

Saten: “Roger!”

Proceed to Scene 44


 

Light Blue Knit Cap

Saten: “If it’s a difficult color to see, then it would be light blue.”

Mikoto: “Well then, it’s decided. Let’s pursue the light blue knit cap!”

Saten: “Acknowledged!”

Proceed to Scene 44.5


 

None

Mikoto: “Mmm, I can’t come to a good decision. However, we can’t not make a decision as to which one. Alright, we’ll decide by a coin flip. If it’s heads then it’s white, tails is light blue. Is that fine?”

Saten: “In this situation, it’s alright to rely on divine intervention.”

Mikoto: “Well then here goes.”

Saten: “Heads!!”

Mikoto: “Alight, let’s pursue the white knit cap.”

Proceed to Scene 44



Scene 44

Perhaps we were a little over reliant on information from the net

ULJS00354_00005.jpg

Saten: “It seems the person in the white knit cap was observed around here.”

Mikoto: “Hmm, there isn’t such a person to be found.”

Saten: “There’s also information on addition sightings. We should check over there.”

Mikoto: “Indeed, let’s hurry.”

Saten: “This way!”

|

Saten: “We haven’t found anything like a white knit cap huh……”

Mikoto: “Huh? Weren’t we just here?”

Saten: “Ah, now that you mention it……I guess there were duplicate eyewitness accounts.”

Saten: “In any event the one’s that sighted him here, they were written several minutes earlier.”

Mikoto: “There were writings that said he was over by the 10th School District as short while ago.”

Saten: “Hmm, moreover on top that, there were postings in which he’d been seen in this area from before that.”

Mikoto: “Could it be……are we being lead astray?”

Mikoto: “It’s from Kuroko. Hello, what’s the matter?”

Mikoto: “Eh? Ichizawa Akiko was attacked?”

Saten: “EEH!?”

Mikoto: “Yeah, I got it. Saten-san and I will return to the 7th School District immediately. Bye.”

Saten: “Misaka-san……”

Mikoto: “It’s as you heard. It seems we didn’t make it in time.”

Mikoto: “Perhaps we were a little over reliant on information from the net.”

Saten: “Uuh, how vexing……

Mikoto: “It seems the pursuit investigation into the Grim Reaper Kakiko has been suspended. We should let Antiskill take it from here.”

Saten: “Yes……”

THE END?


Scene 44.5

ULJS00354_00003.jpg

Saten: “According to the information on the net, we should reach the light blue knit cap by taking a left at the next corner.”

Mikoto: “Okay.”

ULJS00354_00004.jpg

Saten: “This is certainly the place but……isn’t this an unused abandoned building?”

Mikoto: “An abandoned building huh. Let’s see, this one perhaps? With no name plate or sign, doesn’t it seem authentic?”

Saten: “It’s in the vicinity of building with sooty appearances that have fallen into ruin. This is bingo isn’t it?”

Mikoto: “Then, this means that the person in the light blue knit cap has been coming and going from here doesn’t it?”

Saten: “Yes. From what was said about the site location, this building is unmistakably it.”

Mikoto: “A person who’s been coming and going huh……look, there’s still footprints.”

Mikoto: “Whether or not it’s the aforementioned individual’s, it seems unmistakable that someone has been coming and going from here.”

Saten: “As expected, this place is the hideout of the knit cap right!?”

Mikoto: “From here we should collect information about our adversary. If there are any neighborhood residents who are eyewitnesses we can get in contact with them.”

Saten: “Yes! I’m all fired up!”

|

Saten: “He was here, he was here! Someone witnessed a person in a light blue knit cap, he was definitely here!”

Mikoto: “As expected this seems to be the place. Alright, we’ve finally located him.”

Saten: “Ah! Then I’ll contact Uiharu and the others.”

Saten: “Ah, Uiharu? Hey hey, is Shirai-san also there?”

Saten: “Tadah! I have big news to share with you!”

Saten: “The Saten-Misaka Team has located the hideout of the aforementioned person in the knit cap!”

Saten: “Praise me, praise me! Eh? The location? Ah, let’s see. Yeah, it’s not too far from there. We’ll wait okay!”

Saten: “Contact completed. It seems those two are relatively close by.”

Mikoto: “Until then, how about we investigate the entrance?”

Saten: “Ooh, you’re quite motivated Misaka-san!”

ULJS00354_00006

Mikoto: “I’ll check it out first. It’s possible there may be traps.”

Mikoto: “……Hm. There aren’t any electrical traps. However, there seems to be an electronic lock installed.”

Saten: “Oooh, as expected! How elegant it is being the strongest Electromaster!”

Mikoto: “No, this much is no big deal.”

Saten: “No way, for me something like that is truly amazing!”

Saten: “Either way, if we unlock it in advance won’t it be easier to enter when it’s time?”

Mikoto: “About that, that’s if it’s possible.”

Saten: “If that’s the case, then how about  we unlock it beforehand?”

Mikoto: “Indeed, how about we check around for a bit?”

Saten: “Hmm hmm. Hohoh… This is an electronic lock huh. Even though it’s an abandoned building, for it to have a functioning electronic lock,”

 

Saten: “That means it must be running with electricity huh.”

Saten: “If it’s electronic……”

Mikoto: “Indeed, would you leave this to me? I think I’ll be able to manage somehow.”

Saten: “Kyah!? As expected of Misaka-san, I’m floating! Then if you would please, Sensei!”

Proceed to Scene 46


Saten: “Misaka-san, could you perhaps entrust this to me for now?”

Mikoto: “Eh, to you Saten-san?”

Saten: “Eheheh. The truth is i have quite a few secret methods. Even for a Level 0 there are ways of handling such a lock as this! I feel we are underestimated!”

Mikoto: “Ooh! Sounds somewhat promising. Well then if you would please.”

Saten: “Just leave it to me!”

Proceed to Scene 45


Scene 45

Huh, it didn’t open. Why is that I wonder

Saten: “Tadah! This is my secret plan!”

Mikoto: “……A cell phone?”

Saten: “YES! Not only is it that kind of thing, it also comes withincludes the latest downloadable hacking tool.”

Mikoto: “Saten-san, even though there was that kind of thing, you really haven’t learned from experience huh.”

Saten: “Oh my? Misaka-san, didn’t your tension just drop?”

Mikoto: “Well∼, sort of……I guess.”

Saten: “But that’s okay! You’ll be in high spirits immediately once the lock has been unlocked!”

Saten: “And with that said, connector∼on!!”

Mikoto: “Wai, you’re seriously using it?”

Saten: “Of course! Starting up the tool……now.”

Mikoto: “Wait wait! Stop Saten-san!!”

Saten: “It’ll be fi∼ne! Oh, it’s working! I’ve got a good feeling∼”

Mikoto: “Aah……”

Saten: “Huh?”

Clang

Saten: “Oh? There was some kind of error on the screen, but it unlocked right?”

Saten: “Huh, it didn’t open. Why is that I wonder?”

Mikoto: “The system probably powered down when it detected interference from the hacking tool.”

Saten: “……Could it be that it was something I did?”

Mikoto: “Seems that way.”

Mikoto: “For this kind of electronic lock, before the system goes down it quickly secures the lock so that it’s impossible to cancel.”

Mikoto: “This is oversimplifying it, but if I was to compare it to something, it’s been broken from the inside.”

Mikoto: “If it’s like this, it won’t open from just ordinary methods. At any rate let’s wait for Kuroko and Uiharu-san.”

|

Kuroko: “……Good grief, why did things end up like this while we were coming to meet up with Onee-sama?”

Mikoto: “Sorry Kuroko……I have no response to give you.”

Saten: “I’m sorry! I wanted to be helpful to everyone, but in the end I was just a bother.”

Saten: “Next time for sure, I will be helpful!”

Kuroko: “……I’m sorry to have to say this, but there won’t be a next chance.”

Mikoto: “Kuroko?”

Saten: “W-What do you mean by that?”

Atatsu: “[As expected it seems this was too much of a burden for ordinary civilians. You have been removed from the investigation.]”

Mikoto: “Say, couldn’t you give us a chance to redeem ourselves?”

Atatsu: “[There isn’t any spare time to waste on another chance given our limited window.]”

Atatsu: [Shirai-san and Uiharu-san, you should wait there until the locksmith arrives.]”

Uiharu: “Acknowledged.”

Atatsu: “[You two civilians, please head back before it gets dark. Thank you for cooperating with us until now.]”

Kuroko: “There you have it. It’s unfortunate, but the matter is decided.”

Mikoto: “It’s vexing, but it seems that this is all that we can do……”

Thus, Misaka and Saten were removed from the Grim Reaper Kakiko pursuit investigation…….

THE END?


Scene 46

Even with several months I couldn’t unlock it by brute force

Mikoto: “Saten-san, can you step back for a minute.”

Mikoto: “Just as I thought, though it appears to be an electronic lock that’s commonly sold, it seems the inside has been tampered with considerably.”

Saten: “You’re able to understand that much?”

Mikoto: “Sort of……”

Mikoto: (I shouldn’t tell her that I’ve unlocked this type of electronic lock before……)

Mikoto: “The key authentification pattern is unbelievably long.”

Mikoto: “Even with several months I couldn’t unlock it by brute force.”

Saten: “Brute……what is that exactly?”

Mikoto: “Aah, it’s a system where you try every possible electronic key pattern.”

Mikoto: “I think that, in all probability, it’s also been combined with a mechanism that will lock if you fail a few times……”

Mikoto: “I got it. This signal huh.”

Saten: “Wah, the door’s lock has been released! It’s a bit late for this, but Misaka-san is amazing.”

Mikoto: “Putting aside the unlocking key, the technology isn’t all that praiseworthy.”

Saten: “That’s not what I meant, for someone like me it’s certainly easy to believe that an electric shock and such is hard work.”

Saten: “However, to to be able to completely overturn such an understanding, that’s a Level 5 for you.”

Mikoto: “I feel relieved to hear you say it like that. After all there are numerous people who feel unpleasant about that.”

Saten: “I don’t feel that way at all! Not in the least! My sense of respect towards Misaka-san has been deepened!”

Mikoto: “Ahaha, thanks.”

Mikoto: “Now then, since we’ve opened the door, and given that we’ve summoned Kuroko and Uiharu, let’s get our posture in order.”

Saten: “In that case, I already emailed them. They’re on their way here.”

Mikoto: “Then let’s wait until they get here.”

Scene 47

So this is the hat specialty corner huh……ugh!

ULJS00354_00007

Mikoto: “……It’s so hot. Just what’s on earth’s up with this sunlight.”

Saten: “While we’re waiting for Shirai-san and company, what should we do?”

Mikoto: “Hm∼, it’s too hot for us to wait here. If we did, Saten-san’s heatstroke would certainly come back.”

Mikoto: “Until those two get here, how about we take refuge in a nearby store?”

Saten: “Ah, if you’re going to put it that way, there was a store I saw just before that caught my eye.”

Mikoto: “Heh, what kind of store?”

Saten: “A general store. They had a lot of interesting things lined up there.”

Saten: “Since they seemed to have working air conditioning, why don’t we go and cool off while we take a look?”

Saten: “Ah, but we shouldn’t go too far away from the hideout we worked so hard to locate huh.”

Mikoto: “There’s no one here now, but there’s a possibility that the Grim Reaper Kakiko will return during the period when we’re away.”

Mikoto: “M∼∼, that’s it. Wait just a moment, Saten-san.”

Saten: “Misaka-san, what are you doing?”

Saten: “Wah, a television call from Misaka-san? This is showing the entrance to the hideout building huh.”

Mikoto: “Well? Since there appears to no other entrance to the building, if it’s like this we should be fine.”

Saten: “As expected of Misaka-san! Nice idea!”

Mikoto: “Well then, let’s take a peek at the store that caught your eye, Saten-san.”

Saten: “YES.”

ULJS00354_00008.jpg

Saten: “Misaka-san, please look at these sunglasses!”

Mikoto: “Uwah, what is that, heart-shape? That’s some taste.”

Saten: “It feels like ‘just who would buy something like this’ huh.”

Saten: “How about this one?”

Mikoto: “Ahahaha! You totally look like a suspicious character!!”

Mikoto: “What about this? A fake moustache?”

Saten: “Ah, so this area is for the disguise goods. Look, there are even some kind of hats.”

Mikoto: “AHAHA! So suspicious! Wouldn’t this be more of a costume than a disguise?”

Saten: “How about you as well Misaka-san? Something like this is a good match.”

Mikoto: “……Well? Does it suit me?”

Saten: “Buhahahaha! So good so good! I don’t think something more amusing than this exists.”

Mikoto: “Even for a store like this, taking a minute to peek around is so enjoyable.”

Mikoto: “So this is the hat specialty corner huh……ugh!”

Mikoto: (This hat is……a Gekota Cap!?)

Mikoto: “Ah, auh……”

Saten: “Hm, did something happen?”

Mikoto: “Uh, n-no, nothing……”

Mikoto: (If I were to have this thing when we leave here to break into the enemy’s hideout, Kuroko would certainly say something.)

Mikoto: (What to do? Do I buy it now, or should I ask the storekeeper to reserve it……?)

Saten: “Ah, mail from Uiharu. They’ll be arriving here shortly.”

Mikoto: “Heh!?”

Saten: “Let’s go Misaka-san! With this we’re one step closer to unmasking the Grim Reaper Kakiko’s true identity!!”

Mikoto: “Wah, wait up, Saten-san!”

Mikoto: (I’ll just have to memorize the location of this shop. I’ll come back to buy that cap afterwards……)

Mikoto: (Wait for me until then, Gekota Cap!)

If S<4, proceed to Scene 48. Otherwise proceed to Scene 49.


Scene 48

Uiharuu, is it alright if I can just have a mouthful of a taste of that?

ULJS00354_00009.jpg

Mikoto: “Everyone has gathered then.”

Kuroko: “This is the building that the person in the knit cap has apparently been coming and going from.”

Mikoto: “Indeed. Let’s get to it right away then.”

Uiharu: “Yes! Let’s go, Saten-san!”

Saten: “U-Umm……before that”

Mikoto: “Hm, what happened? Was there something else, something you forgot perhaps?”

Saten: “It’s not that I forgot something or anything, but before we head in, that is……”

Saten: “Shouldn’t we eat something?”

Mikoto: “Ha?”

Uiharu: “S-Saten-san, are you hungry?”

Saten: “Ahaha……you see, before coming here I was wandering around a lot so”

Kuroko: “Given that we’re just about to raid the hideout of a suspect, doesn’t that warrant some feeling of tensions?”

Kuroko’s stomach growls

Saten: “…………”

Uiharu: “…………”

Kuroko: “……Gehon. If Uiharu is so hungry that her stomach is making that kind of request, then I guess there’s no helping it.”

Uiharu: “Eh!? Me? Wasn’t it Shirai-san who made that noise just now?”

Kuroko: “S-Somebody like me would never make such a vulgar sound!”

Saten: “Now now now now, isn’t fine for everyone here to be hungry?”

Saten: “Just over that way, there was a delicious crepe shop!”

Saten: “Why don’t we head over there?”

Uiharu: “Delicious crepes……that could be good……”

Mikoto: “Crepes huh, that should be fine right? We haven’t even discussed our plans for raiding the hideout before us yet.”

Uiharu: “However, is it okay for us to be too far from this place……?”

Mikoto: “My phone still has enough battery to be used as a monitoring device, so I don’t think we should have to worry if it’s for a short while.”

Saten: “Then it’s settled! Well then let’s get going everyone~!”

ULJS00354_00010.jpg

Mikoto: “Ah, it’s delicious.”

Uiharu: “It really is, so delicious. ……Amph.”

Saten: “For Uiharu, uttering a word of complaint would be quite strange.”

Uiharu: “Even so what I said won’t change. Delicious things are delicious.”

Kuroko: “Certainly this flavor is quite something……”

Saten: “Hehheh, I have confidence in my olfactory sense that was able to discover this place.”

Mikoto: “Uhuh, the cream is light, and the sweetness is very rich.”

Mikoto: “This was well made.”

Kuroko: “Onee-sama, while being in a daze is perfectly alright, there’s some cream on your cheek.”

Mikoto: “Eh, where?”

Kuroko: “It’s just so slovenly. I-I-I’ll clean it up for you……”

Saten: “Misaka-san, over here, look.”

Saten: “I don’t have a handkerchief……well no problem. Lick.”

Mikoto: “Hyah!?”

Kuroko: “SA-SSSSaten-san!? What did you do just now?”

Saten: “Heh? Well I didn’t have a handkerchief so I licked the cream off of Misaka-san’s cheek.”

Kuroko: “You can’t just lick it off! How shameless, how enviable……”

Mikoto: “Come now, it’s fine isn’t it? I was a bit surprised though.”

Kuroko: “Not fine at all! After all the rugged roads I’ve travelled to reach the level of licking……”

Saten: “Uiharuu, is it alright if I can just have a mouthful of a taste of that?”

Uiharu: “No way!”

Uiharu: “You say just a mouthful Saten-san, but aren’t you going to end up eating half!?”

Kuroko: “I’ve been completely ignored!?”

Mikoto: “Now then……everyone, we’ve all filled our stomachs.”

Kuroko: “Just until I get my lick!”

Mikoto: “You heard me say that we’ve finished filling our stomachs, right?”

Kuroko: “……My apologies.”

Saten: “Well then, let’s brace ourselves for raiding the opponent’s hideout!”

Proceed to Scene 49


Scene 49

A large number of rockets were manufactured here!

ULJS00354_00000.jpg
ULJS00354_00001.jpg

Kuroko: “……Just what is this? It feels as though this was some kind of factory.”

Saten: “There’s a mountain of iron pipes. What kind of gargantuan machine could cut all these pipes?”

Saten: “Just what is this place?”

Uiharu: “Saten-san, please don’t touch more than is necessary. It’s essential that we preserve the crime scene.”

Saten: “This here looks like some kind of diagram for something, but for what?”

Mikoto: “Can I also have a look at that? ……75 mm rocket ordnance!?”

Topic ‘Rocket Ordnance’ AcquiredOnee-sama, resisting is no good!!

Uiharu: “Eh? ……Then, this entire mountain of pipes……!!”

Kuroko: “This is gunpowder and explosive mixing patterns. And this is for remote control electronic circuits……”

Riiiing

Kuroko: “It’s from Atatsu-senpai. Yes, this is Shirai.”

Atatsu: “[It seems you’ve located the Grim Reaper Kakiko’s hideout. What can you tell me about it?]”

Kuroko: “I’m sorry to say it, but we were unable to capture the Grim Reaper Kakiko individual. But……”

Kuroko: “We know what the Grim Reaper Kakiko is doing.”

Uiharu: “A large number of rockets were manufactured here!”

Atatsu: “[I see……are there any traces that someone has been living there?]”

Mikoto: “No. The machine tools are also cold. There’s even a small layer of dust that’s collected.”

Mikoto: “Nothing here’s been disturbed recently.”

Atasu: “[So that’s how it is. If they were planning to cause the incident today, they must have finished setting up ahead of time.]”

Uiharu: “Th-Then, the mountains of pipe that’s scattered all around here……?”

Atatsu: “[Those aren’t rockets, I would guess those are leftover parts.]”

Atatsu: “[If the Grim Reaper Kakiko is truly doing it, they must have already set up at the location.]”

Atatsu: “[They would have also taken the main rockets along with them.]”

Mikoto: “……This is no joking matter. Even just the unused parts number in the scores……”

Atatsu: “[For an accurate count of how many rockets the Grim Reaper Kakiko sent out, I suppose there isn’t anything like a manufacturing record is there?]”

Atatsu: “[Since they are entirely handmade it’s possible there won’t be any records left, but……]”

Atatsu: “[If we figure out the quantity of explosives, we might be able to infer from there.]”

Kuroko: “Can you please wait just a minute? Is this a trash can?”

Saten: “It seems to be one, but what are you going to do with it?”

Kuroko: “Perhaps inside……there was!”

ULJS00354_00002.jpg

Kuroko: “There were a number of receipts left behind. Though they were subdivided among several stores, all sorts of materials were purchased.”

Kuroko: “7 mm diameter, 2 meter long steel pipes……let’s see, they got their hands on nearly 100 of them.”

Uiharu: “However, aren’t the ones left lying around here only about 1 meter?”

Atatsu: “[The length was adjusted by cutting them in half. Those are the launchers.]”

Kuroko: “If that’s the case, there could be as many as 200 tubes. Among those, the amount that are piled up here would be……”

Uiharu: “About 50 tubes.”

Atatsu: “[A simple subtraction problem.]”

Atatsu: “[The Grim Reaper Kakiko will likely fire about 150 rockets from the specified site.]”

Uiharu: “A hundred……and fifty……?”

Kuroko: “Isn’t that nearly enough for a carpet bombing!”

Kuroko: “If such a thing were to hit Ichizawa Akiko’s convoy, even Antiskill would be defenseless!!”

Kuroko: “The bulletproof vehicle won’t withstand it, and even Antiskill who are covering it will meet with the same result.”

Kuroko: “Even if they tried to hurriedly get away, from the start the scope of the blast radius is far beyond that!!”

Uiharu: “Atatstu-senpai!! Is it possible to get in contact with Antiskill!?”

Uiharu: “For now perhaps they can change the travel route, and then afterwards take cover in a shelter……”

Atatsu: “[That could work but……shit!! No good. Those guys won’t listen to the opinions of children!!]”

Kuroko: “Onee-sama!!”

Kuroko: “If we use my Teleport, we can cut off the travel route for Ichizawa Akiko!!”

Kuroko: “Rather than trying to persuade Antiskill like this, our heading there directly will be faster!!”

Atatsu: “[Regarding Ichizawa Akiko’s transport route, it’s being treated as secret information so even I haven’t been informed of it.]”

Atatsu: “[However, calculating backwards from the lecture schedule, they’re bound to begin transporting her soon.]”

Mikoto: “Kuh, there’s no time huh……”

Atatsu: “[I’ll keep requesting that they change the route. I’ll contact you again afterwards.]”

Kuroko: “……She hung up. Onee-sama, what should we do?”

Mikoto: “Knowing all of this, we can’t just feel relieved.”

Saten: “Absolutely not!”

Mikoto: “From the information collected up until now, it might be possible to conjecture the site of the attack against Ichizawa Akiko……”

Saten: “Let’s do it!”

(0%)

Mikoto: “Let’s think this through starting from the very beginning. “

Choices (0%)

 

Person in the Knit Cap

Kuroko: “Couldn’t the Grim Reaper Kakiko be trying to implicate the person in the knit cap?”

(30%)

Uiharu: “Eh? Isn’t that strange?”

Kuroko: “How exactly?”

Uiharu: “Weren’t we saying until just now that the ‘someone who’s been posting crime predictions as the Grim Reaper Kakiko’ was the person in the knit cap themselves?”

(15%)

Saten: “So since the ‘person in the knit cap’ = ‘Grim Reaper Kakiko’, by Shirai-san’s reasoning wouldn’t the Grim Reaper Kakiko be targeting themselves?”

Ichizawa Akiko

Uiharu: “Actually, it’s obvious once you’ve seen the number of rockets that were prepared.”

Uiharu: “In what way does the criminal intend to attack Ichizawa Akiko?”

Choices (40%)

 

Rockets

(60%)

Uiharu: “……That is, it goes without saying that they’ll use the rockets that were produced here.”

Mikoto: “Just where the heck would they have set those up I wonder……?”

Choices (60%)

 

Rockets

Uiharu: “The culprit produced the rockets in this room……”

 

Ichizawa Akiko

Saten: “The rockets, how far can they fly? I’m curious about the distance of their range.”

Mikoto: “It depends on the specific type, however these are homemade. If we also consider accuracy, wouldn’t it only be in the tens of meters?”

Saten: “Ah, I see. Aiming at someplace from here in Academy City, wouldn’t it go SPAH if you shot it?” {Not sure what sound this is (しゅぱーっと)}

Mikoto: “Indeed……”

Saten: “Well then, that’s a little bothersome.”

Mikoto: “How so?”

Saten: “Because, if there wasn’t a place for them to fly, they wouldn’t be able to reach the attack coordinates. With 1 meter iron pipes, they’re going to fire 150 of them? Don’t you think that Mr. Knit Cap would look suspicious doing that?”

(70%)

Kuroko: “Saten-san!!”

Saten: “Wah, I’m sorry! Doing such a thing would be clumsy and tiresome and what not, wouldn’t it!?”

Kuroko: “No, it’s as you said Saten-san!”

Mikoto: “It was so simple. When it comes to carrying that many rockets, it’s always best to have them near the point of attack.”

(80%)

Saten: “Eh? Eh?”

Uiharu: “In other words, within Ichizawa Akiko’s transfer route, it would be best if the location of the point of attack was close to this hideout!”

Saten: “Eh? Eh?”

Uiharu: “In other words, within Ichizawa Akiko’s transfer route, it would be best if the location of the point of attack was close to this hideout!”

Ichizawa Akiko

Kuroko: “Since they chose Ichizawa Akiko, can’t it be inferred that she’s somehow tied to all this?”

 

Rockets

Saten: “The rockets, how far can they fly? I’m curious about the distance of their range.”

Mikoto: “It depends on the specific type, however these are homemade. If we also consider accuracy, wouldn’t it only be in the tens of meters?”

Saten: “Ah, I see. Aiming at someplace from here in Academy City, wouldn’t it go SPAH if you shot it?” {Not sure what sound this is (しゅぱーっと)}

Mikoto: “Indeed……”

Saten: “Well then, that’s a little bothersome.”

Mikoto: “How so?”

Saten: “Because, if there wasn’t a place for them to fly, they wouldn’t be able to reach the attack coordinates. With 1 meter iron pipes, they’re going to fire 150 of them? Don’t you think that Mr. Knit Cap would look suspicious doing that?”

Kuroko: “Saten-san!!”

Saten: “Wah, I’m sorry! Doing such a thing would be clumsy and tiresome and what not, wouldn’t it!?”

Kuroko: “Well then, if you would please take care of things after this.”

Yomikawa: “Aah, leave it to me.”

Yomikawa: “However, we completely failed to notice that the attack preparations were occurring at this place.”

Yomikawa: “As for the remaining problem, we haven’t yet discovered the culprit themselves.”

Kuroko: “Are there no clues in regards to those people?”

Yomikawa: “Even if we did, I have no reason to tell you what they are.”

Yomikawa: “From this point on you’re entrusting this to Antiskill, right?”

Kuroko: “……Eeh, I understand.”

Uiharu: “With this the investigation has ended……hasn’t it?”

Saten: “What are you saying! Even though the culprit hasn’t been captured yet!”

Uiharu: “Eh, b-but, after this we’re entrusting it to the people from Antiskill right……?”

Mikoto: “If we hadn’t said that at the time, it just would’ve gotten noisy.”

Uiharu: “Eh, th-then……!?”

Mikoto: “That Antiskill is officially taking action is reassuring. For the sake of that we had no choice but to assent.”

Mikoto: “We shouldn’t have a reason to discontinue our investigation.”

Saten: “However we just turned over that hideout to Antiskill. What will we do from now on?”

Kuroko: “Indeed. In that case, how about we return once more to that internet cafe from earlier?”

Kuroko: “I think there’s nothing we can do other than search for clues from the crime predictions and the surrounding area.”

Mikoto: “Yeah, it’s possible there’s still something we’ve overlooked.”

Kuroko: “Though if we were to suspend our investigation in deference to Antiskill this would be over for us.”

Uiharu: “Yes, I’m starting.”

Uiharu: “This is a prankster taking advantage of the situation, this here is a false alarm caused by the spread of false rumors……”

Uiharu: “There’s too much noise, so it’s difficult to trace the originator. Hm~.”

Uiharu: “I’m going to trace back the information a little further.”

Saten: “MISAKA-SAN, SHIRAI-SAN, UIHARU!!”

Uiharu: “‘A VIP who was a scheduled to give a lecture at the international exhibition hall was attacked by mysterious terrorists’……!?”

Uiharu: “‘It is presumed that the criminal behind the attack penetrated the strict security and abducted Ichizawa Akiko’……”

Uiharu: “No way……!”

Mikoto: “They completely outwitted us in the end……”

After half a day, Ichizawa Akiko was found restrained inside an abandoned building.

However, she wouldn’t say anything about her kidnapper, so the true story behind the incident never became public……

BAD END

Onee-sama, resisting is no good!!

ULJS00354_00006

Uiharu: “Though I do understand that there are no other methods……”

Uiharu: “Given that Ichizawa Akiko is an important person in the administration, will it really be that easy to meet with her?”

Mikoto: “Hmm, to be frank, the possibility of that is low. However, even so we cannot just give up.”

Saten: “It’ll be fine! If we say that we’re Judgement, we’ll surely get to meet with her.”

Uiharu: “I-Is that so? While it’d been fine if that was the case……”

Mikoto: “In any case, nothing ventured nothing gained. Come on, let’s go.”

Kuroko: “Excuse me. You are with Antiskill are you not?”

Yomikawa: “Hm, what’s your business?”

Kuroko: “We’re with Judgement. We’d like to meet with Ichizawa Akiko.”

Yomikawa: “Ha? Ichizawa Akiko? What are you talking about?”

Mikoto: “Ichizawa Akiko is being targeted by a terrorist! Her guard must be strengthened immediately!”

Yomikawa: “J-Just wait a minute! I’ll ask headquarters about it right now!”

Yomikawa: “Yes, yeah, there’s four people here calling themselves Judgement……”

Yomikawa: “I see. Yes, acknowledged.”

Saten: “Is she going to show us to where Ichizawa-san is?”

Yomikawa: “Oi! Restrain these four!”

Mikoto: “EH, EEH!? Hold on!!”

Crackle

Kuroko: “Onee-sama, resisting is no good!!”

Kuroko: “I am with Judgement! Whatever this is, I demand an explanation!”

Yomikawa: “Headquarters reported that there is a possibility of the attack perpetrators attempting to make contact while posing as Judgement.”

Yomikawa: “We’ll listen to your story in detail afterwards.”

Saten: “Eh, w-what’s this, could it be, you don’t think we’re the culprits, do you!?”

Mikoto: “We came here to help Ichizawa Akiko dammit!”

Misaka and company were restrained by Antiskill as suspects in the attack on Ichizawa Akiko.

By the time they were clear of suspicion and released from custody, it was already after the Grim Reaper Kakiko had implemented their plan…….

BAD END

Found it! In all likelihood the planned point of attack is here!!

Uiharu: “But, please wait.”

Uiharu: “Ichizawa Akiko’s transport route is a top secret among top secrets. Since we don’t know what it is, what should we do…….”

Ring

Atatsu: “[Can you hear me? I sent Ichizawa Akiko’s transport route data to Uiharu-san’s terminal.]”

Kuroko: “Uiharu, check it immediately.”

Uiharu: “It’s certainly been delivered. I just received it.”

Uiharu: “However, this is S-Class classified date? How exactly did you obtain it?”

Atatsu: “[Is it necessary that I explain my methods now?]”

Atatsu: “[I sent it thinking it would be of use to you all, but if it’s not useful you should delete it.]”

Mikoto: “No, it’s very helpful. This is exactly the data we wanted.”

Atatsu: “[I’ll continue requesting for the security to be strengthened.]”

Atatsu: “[I’ll entrust you guys with deciding what to do next. Bye.]”

Kuroko: “Ichizawa Akiko’s transport route, if we combine it with what we just concluded……”

Uiharu: “Found it! In all likelihood the planned point of attack is here!!”

Topic ‘Point of Attack’ Acquired

Mikoto: “If their intention is to attack using the rockets, the target is unmistakable.”

Mikoto: “To start with, Saten-san, Uiharu-san, you leave the building.”

Mikoto: “If it’s as Atatsu-san said, there are volunteers from Judgement. You go and call out to them.”

Mikoto: “There are rocket parts remaining here. The same for the gunpowder. Therefore there’s plenty to choose from.”

Mikoto: “Keep on searching here for any clues we may have missed. Understood?”

Scene 53

I guess you’re flipping a switch right now while laughing out loud

ACTION SEQUENCE

Kuroko and Mikoto teleport into the air several stories up. A convoy of vehicles appears on the road below.

Kuroko: “There it is.”

Mikoto is shown falling while facing upwards.

Mikoto: “They’re already here!”

The rockets are shown approaching. Press triangle twice to shoot them down with lightning spears. Fail and get blown up.

The convoy screeches to a stop. More rockets close in on them. Mikoto blasts those as well.

Mikoto: “Okay, Kuroko!”

Kuroko Teleports in and transports Mikoto to the surface.

Mikoto: “Now then, bring ’em on!”

A large quantity of rockets start approaching.

Mikoto: “Huh, they multiplied!?”

Mikoto: “Ahh geez! I’m not taking back what I said! Bring it!”

A triple input of left, right, and triangle (any order) is necessary to shoot them down.

Kuroko runs up to an Antiskill officer.

Kuroko: “What are you doing!?”

Judgement: “You are!? Those explosions!?”

Kuroko: “I’ll explain later! In any case just get away from here!!”

Judgement: “The tire’s have been damaged! It seems there was a trap on the roadway as well!!”

Kuroko: “Onee-sama! The car’s no good!”

Mikoto: (Did the Grim Reaper Kakiko completely predict our actions?)

Mikoto: “This probably isn’t over yet! You accompany the VIP and escape from here!”

Judgement: “However, if they target us while we’re in transit……!”

Mikoto: “Use Kuroko! She’s a Teleporter!”

Kuroko: “What about Onee-sama!?”

Mikoto: “It’s fine just hurry up! Trust me!!”

Kuroko and the Antiskill run off.

Mikoto: (……You skillfully had these made and scattered everywhere.)

Mikoto: (This has been extremely fun for you huh.)

Mikoto: (I guess you’re flipping a switch right now while laughing out loud.)

Mikoto: (I guess you find the scene of me panicking to be be very amusing.)

Rockets are shown closing in as Mikoto prepares her electricity. She blasts them without so much as flinching.

Mikoto: (Certainly it has been following your plan until now.)

Mikoto: (Murder predictions in the form of net advice——)

Mikoto: (——you then ensured that events have been following those——)

Mikoto: (——and even getting everyone in the area screaming ‘kyaa kyaa’ and ‘wah wah’, all that was entirely included in your plans)

Rockets approaching.

Mikoto: (You’re a genius.)

Mikoto: (You’re shrewd.)

Mikoto: (I haven’t stopped any one of your methods.)

Mikoto: (You think you’re so cool?)

Mikoto: “Don’t underestimates MEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!”

The rockets start closing in. You have to spam the triangle button to blast them all. Misaka goes on a lightning rampage.

Sequence Complete

The full sequence starts at about 3:01.


Scene 54

You’re wrong. It was the other way around

ULJS00354_00004.jpg

Mikoto: “The attack stopped……? Seems I shot down all of the rockets that’d been prepared.”

Mikoto: “In the end, the culprit never once made an appearance, huh. Even though I get that, it infuriates me.”

Teleport

Kuroko: “Is it over?”

Mikoto: “We should contact Antiskill and the Judgement volunteers and get them to investigate this.”

Mikoto: “While I think it’s probably okay, just to be sure we should check if the surrounding buildings to make sure there are no remaining usable rockets.”

Mikoto: “However we have to cautious of explosive traps.”

Mikoto: “Causing us trouble by having us deal with the aftermath so you can escape was also part of your plans then huh.”

Mikoto: “……Shit! I’m seriously pissed!!”

Kuroko: “I’ve already finished contacting Antiskill. And, speaking of which.”

Yomikawa: “Are you safe? You said you were Judgement but……”

Mikoto: “……I’m kind of a fake.”

Mikoto: “And the VIP, Ichizawa Akiko? She hasn’t been injured has she?”

Yomikawa: “That is the case, however……”

Yomikawa: “The one on board this van wasn’t Ichizawa Akiko.”

Mikoto: “What was that?”

Yomikawa: “In truth, it was a body double.”

Yomikawa: “That one from Judgement……what was her name again? Aah, that’s right. Atatsu Chiyo-san!”

Yomikawa: “A little before, she contacted us with a warning.”

Yomikawa: “Though we were suspicious of it at that point in time, just in case we changed the security measures.”

Yomikawa: “As far as Ichizawa Akiko is concerned, she was escorted along a different route under minimal guard, so you can relax.”

Mikoto: “…………”

Mikoto: (Wait……)

Yomikawa: “I feel sorry for all of you, but this was also to protect the safety of the target.”

Yomikawa: “After all, at the time of the attack there was no way for you to know that the one here was a body double.”

Yomikawa: “Therefore we couldn’t reveal it to you.”

Yomikawa: “However, if this already used up all of their rockets……”

Mikoto: “You’re wrong. It was the other way around.”

Mikoto: “The Grim Reaper Kakiko’s actual goal was to change the transport route!!”

Mikoto: “Since they judged it to be difficult with her being normally surrounded by a large number of Antiskill members, by causing the people to disperse……”

Mikoto: “They decreased the number of people directly protecting Ichizawa Akiko!!”

Yomikawa: “Wait just a moment. That means……”

Mikoto: “Contact Ichizawa Akiko’s escort team immediately!! Hurry!!”

Yomikawa: “……No one’s answering. Why!?”

Mikoto: “The real one, you said she only had a few defense personel right?”

Yomikawa: “If the real one stood out too much, the body double tactic would have no meaning……”

Mikoto: “In all likelihood, the real Ichizawa Akiko also came under attack.”

Yomikawa: “What was that!?”

Mikoto: “In that situation, it was so simple that there was no need to prepare rockets……”

Yomikawa: “Kuh, I’ll contact the main force immediately and……!!”

Mikoto: “We’ve been completely screwed with by the Grim Reaper Kakiko! This situation, is Atatsu-san aware of it——”

Ring

Mikoto: “Uiharu-san? I was just about to contact you——”

Uiharu: “[Misaka-san, this is serious!!]”

Mikoto: “……What’s the matter?”

Uiharu: “[We found Atatsu-senpai!]”

Mikoto: “Eh? Haven’t we been keeping in contact with Atatsu-san since before?”

Mikoto: “Found her you say, what does that——”

Uiharu: “[The genuine Atatsu Chiyo-senpai was being confined!]”

Mikoto: “Genuine? What do you mean genuine!?”

Uiharu: “[The Atatsu-senapi we’ve been in contact with was a fake!]”

Mikoto: “What was that……?”

Uiharu: “[The real Atatsu-senpai had been kept in confinement for the past few days.]”

Kuroko: “Then, just who was the Atatsu-senpai who was at the 18th School District’s subdivision?”

Uiharu: “[I-I don’t know. I also don’t know what on earth is going on……]”

Mikoto: “W-Wait a minute.”

Mikoto: “You showed me Atatsu-san’s data when you introduced her to me, right?”

Mikoto: “Wasn’t that Judgement’s official record?”

Uiharu: “[About that……we discovered traces that the database had been altered.]”

Mikoto: “Judgement’s database was altered? Is something like that possible?”

Uiharu: “[I can’t believe it either. But it’s a fact that it was overwritten.]”

Kuroko: “Then, that data of Atatsu-senpai that we saw was complete bullshit?”

Uiharu: “[We contacted the school affiliation that was written for her in the data, but they were entirely unaware of Atatsu-senpai.]”

Uiharu: “[It’s certain that,  in that school district’s database, the school affiliation for Atatsu-senpai was overwritten with a different school.]”

Uiharu: “[Furthermore the portrait photograph that’s registered for her is also completely fake.]”

Mikoto: “Fake?”

Uiharu: “[In order to match the photograph to the corresponding person, we used a recognition program but……]”

Uiharu: “[It returned an error that it couldn’t recognize it. It must have been designed to be like that.]”

Mikoto: “So that face is for someone who doesn’t exist huh. What about the other data?”

Uiharu: “[We’re currently investigating that, but we have no idea how far the rewriting goes, nor were we remotely aware that it had been……]”

Mikoto: “……Understood.”

Mikoto: “Uiharu-san, can you keep looking for anything about Atatsu Chiyo?”

Mikoto: “I don’t think there’ll be any major clues left behind but……”

Uiharu: “[Yes, I understand. I’ll notify you immediately if I find anything!]”

Mikoto: “……From the start, it all been according to that person’s plan.”

Mikoto: “What do you mean by that, Onee-sama?”

Mikoto: “Think back. At the time we located the Grim Reaper Kakiko’s hideout, did somebody notify Atatsu Chiyo?”

Kuroko: “N-No……now that you mention it nobody contacted her.”

Mikoto: “That’s altogether beyond just good timing. And important information was always being brought by that person.”

Mikoto: “SHIT!!”

Mikoto: (……The Grim Reaper Kakiko made a variety of murder predictions.)

Mikoto: (While at a glance pretending it was helpful advice, in reality those comments were filled with nothing but ill will……)

Mikoto: (The character of the Grim Reaper Kakiko was just one person on the net, which then steadily multiplied……)

Mikoto: (It’s to the point that the original can no longer be determined, no, to the point that the original has no significance to begin with.)

Mikoto: (However)

Mikoto: (The Grim Reaper Kakiko really did exist.)

Mikoto: “We were deceived.”

Mikoto: “We were manipulated by Atatsu Chiyo……no, by the Grim Reaper Kakiko.”


Scene 55

[……Atatsu-senpai, no, who are you?]

ULJS00354_00000.jpg

Atatsu: “Nice to meet you. Ichizawa Akiko-san.”

Ichizawa: “…………!”

Atatsu: “Oh my, I of all people had completely forgotten.”

Atatsu: “I completely apologize for that.”

Atatsu: “With your mouth covered with packing tape, it’s only natural that you cannot speak.”

Atatsu: “This might be a bit painful, but please be patient.”

ULJS00354_00001.jpg

Ichizawa: “……KUHAH. Who are you? What are your intentions?”

Atatsu: “Oh my, you don’t know me? I’m the Super Judgement Member, Atatsu Chiyo-san.”

Atatsu: “Oh, that’s right. That was just a suitably produced identity.”

Atatsu: “It’s easy to understand since I don’t at all resemble the real Atatsu Chiyo.”

Atatsu: “That was really quite rude of me.”

Ichizawa: “……What are you talking about?”

Atatsu: “This makeup isn’t needed anymore huh.”

Ripping sound

Atatsu: “Well, I might as well show you my true face.”

Atatsu: “I think you’d regret it terribly after the fact if you didn’t know the face of your adversary.”

Rip

Ichizawa: “…………”

ULJS00354_00002.jpg

Atatsu: “Oh sorry, I still won’t tell you my name. It’s no fun if you know everything from the start now is it?”

Ichizawa: “What’s your goal?”

Ichizawa: “To go as far as to slip through Antiskill’s security, all so you could pinpoint me who you were targeting……”

Ichizawa: “This can’t just be some indiscriminate kidnapping for money.”

Atatsu: “If I wanted money, I could have been more efficient in my allotment of force.”

Atatsu: “Well, I do admit that money is necessary for achieving my goals.”

Atatsu: “For something like that though, it’s only right to raise that before beginning your plan, right?”

ULJS00354_00001

Ichizawa: “I’m asking you what your goal is.”

Atatsu: “Oh, how scary.”

Atatsu: “However, I wonder if it’ll be alright to answer that.”

Atatsu: “Despite how it may seem, I have a reputation for excelling at being considerate of the feelings of others.”

Atatsu: “For something that would be so shocking for you if revealed——”

Ichizawa: “I won’t ask you a third time!! I’m asking you what your goal is!!”

Atatsu: “The ‘Eighth Level Red’.”

ULJS00354_00003.jpg

Ichizawa: “No……way……!?”

Atatsu: “Oh oh oh oh……”

Atatsu: “Even though I obediently answered you when you said ‘answer me’, what kind of reaction is that?”

Atatsu: “Rather, you should be filled with gratitude for my generosity——”

ULJS00354_00001

Ichizawa: “Don’t you realize?”

Ichizawa: “The ‘Eighth Level Red’. Do you understand just what the hell that is!?”

Atatsu: “Is there even a slight possibility of my coming into contact with that term and yet not understand it?”

Ichizawa: “Kuh……”

Atatsu: “It wasn’t that hard to access the entire system.”

Atatsu: “Since I possess the level of skill to rewrite the Bank and Judgement’s database.”

Atatsu: “However, it’s a different story where the ‘Eighth Level Red’ is concerned. That has a self-sufficient security system.”

Atatsu: “Even if I can access the system in general, I can’t use the control system for the ‘Eighth Level Red’.”

Atatsu: “In order to break into that control system, your assistance will be necessary, madame.”

ULJS00354_00001

Ichizawa: “Stop joking around!!”

Atatsu: “So you realized that I was joking. Good good, you’re not an idiot.”

Ichizawa: “You think I’d surrender my security key?”

Atatsu: “To begin with it’s not something you can just hand over, right?”

ULJS00354_00002

Atatsu: “For the security key to the ‘Eighth Level Red’, the brainwave patterns of top class researchers is used.”

Atatsu: “Therefore it’s impossible to just get the password or something from somebody.”

Atatsu: “Well, Psychometry isn’t all that rare an ability in this city, so don’t you think that’s a reasonable approach?”

ULJS00354_00001

Ichizawa: “If that’s the case……!!”

ULJS00354_00002

Atatsu: “However, have you ever considered this?”

Atatsu: “The possibility that espers could exist in this world who can directly copy a person’s brainwave patterns.”

ULJS00354_00005.jpg

Boy: “Hey, is it my turn yet?”

Atatsu: “Allow me to introduce him. This is the Level 2 Telepath, Futaishi Kyousha-kun.”

Atatsu: “Though usually he’s not a very useful child—”

Atatsu: “If you tamper with his brain just a bit using a Testament, he’s quite wonderful.”

Atatsu: “He’s been remade as a special esper-chan who can copy another person’s brainwaves.”

ULJS00354_00003

Ichizawa: “You said a Testament!!”

Ichizawa: “Just where, something like that……just using that thing is serious enough———”

Atatsu: “Even if it’s a rare item, even if it’s been banned, once it’s been introduced to the world it cannot be withdrawn.”

Atatsu: “It’s something that exists somewhere.”

Ichizawa: “If you make a mistake in using it, couldn’t you have caused irrevocable brain damage?”

Ichizawa: “If you use the Testament for optimization he can never return to his original personality! What exactly do you think humans are!?”

ULJS00354_00005

Atatsu: “There’s no need to worry about that.”

Atatsu: “I’m experienced in that sort of treatment after all.”

Ichizawa: “Who the hell……are you?”

Atatsu: “For those guys on the executive board of directors, it seems this is something they desperately want to keep hidden.”

Atatsu: “For something like a Testament, so long as you have the connections and the money, it’s as easy to obtain as buying gum at the convenience store, isn’t it?”

Atatsu: “Compared to that, the search for that gentleman was much more difficult.”

Atatsu: “While those types that can interfere with a person’s thought can be found everywhere……”

Atatsu: “Those that can copy brainwaves are considerably less so……”

Atatsu: “For that reason, I incited the Longicorn into collecting hair samples, did you know?”

Atatsu: “Having said that though, you were also just as difficult weren’t you?”

Atatsu: “Even your home was private information.”

Atatsu: “I couldn’t find it just by peeking into Judgement and Antiskill’s database.”

Atatsu: “I thought I could use ‘Disciplinary Guidance’, but it failed with such low quality goods.”

Atatsu: “Because of that, I ended up having to do it myself.”

ULJS00354_00003

Ichizawa: “To go to such an extent……”

ULJS00354_00001

Ichizawa: “To go to such an extent, just what is it you want with the ‘Eighth Level Red’!?”

Ichizawa: “Not just me. You got a lot of people mixed up in all this!!”

Atatsu: “Nyah nyah nyah, I’m nyot listening.”

Atatsu: “Now Futaishi-kun. Why don’t we finish up this bothersome task already?”

ULJS00354_00003

Ichizawa: “P-Please wait!!”

Ichizawa: “You understand don’t you? What it means to copy someone else’s brainwaves into your own brain……!!”

ULJS00354_00005

Futaishi: “Shut up. A loser is a loser, so make your preparations.”

Futaishi: “I’m not at all concerned about what happens to your brain as a result of using my power.”

Atatsu: “Indeed, indeed. This is a game.”

Atatsu: “It’s Futaishi-kun’s victory if you copy her brainwaves. If you’re unable to do so, it’s this Onee-san’s victory.”

Futaishi: “There you have it. It’s also my first time using this ability. Please cooperate Oba-san.”

Atatsu: “That’s wrong. Didn’t I tell you to call her Onee-san?”

Futaishi: “Oh right. Well then let’s get going. Hold still, Onee-san.”

Ichizawa: “You idiot!! Your brain’s the one that’s in danger!!”

Futaishi: “Eh……?”

Spark

Futaishi: “AUGH!?”

Sound of Futaishi falling to the ground

ULJS00354_00002

Clapping

Atatsu: “Yes, nicely done.”

ULJS00354_00003

Ichizawa: “Copying brainwaves, that is to say that if they become fixed, both your body and mental functions are completely suspended……”

ULJS00354_00001

Ichizawa: “Do you realize what you’ve just done to this child!?”

Atatsu: “Oh come on, it’s not as though I was deceiving Futaishi-kun after all.”

Atatsu: “Since he never asked what would happen when he used his ability, I just never told him.”

ULJS00354_00003

Atatsu: “With this I’ve obtained Ichizawa Akiko’s security key. The ‘Eighth Level Red’ will also end up in my hands.”

ULJS00354_00001

Ichizawa: “Why you……what are youuuUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU!!”

Ringing

ULJS00354_00006.jpg

Atatsu: “Hm? My my, Shirai-san of Judgement is it?”

Kuroko: “[……Atatsu-senpai, no, who are you?]”

Atatsu: “Let’s see, who indeed.”

Atatsu: “At this moment, your phone is connected to call tracing equipment if I’m not mistaken.”

Atatsu: “But that’s fine. Allow me to save you some time.”

Atatsu: “In the 7th School District there’s the remains of a karaoke box called ‘Forkball’.”

Atatsu: “Please come to room #104. I’ll show you something interesting.”

Kuroko: “[Wait right there! This conversation still……!]”

Atatsu: “The conversations is over! Seeya∼”

ULJS00354_00001

Atatsu: “Well then.”

Ichizawa: “……I-If you’re going to kill me then hurry it up.”

Atatsu: “Kyahn how cool✰”

Atatsu: “However those are troublesome thoughts. I have no desire to hurt or wound people when it’s not necessary for my goals.”

Atatsu: “……However, I will kill anyone if it’s necessary for my goals, didn’t you know?”

Ichizawa: “Tch!!”

ULJS00354_00002

Atasu: “Kukukuh, no need to be so startled, I’m not going to kill you, didn’t I just say as much?”

Atatsu: “Here, this cell phone is a present for Ichizawa-san.”

Atatsu: “Since the power hasn’t been disconnected, if you hold it Shirai-san will come and help you.”

ULJS00354_00001

Atatsu: “All, righty……children are quite heavy when they’re unconscious huh.”

Atatsu: “Well then if you’ll excuse me. After this, it’s fine if you cooperate with Antiskill and Judgement.”

Atatsu: “But pray that you don’t reach the level where you become an obstacle to my ‘goals’.”

Atatsu: “If you do, then I’ll have no choice but to put an end to your life that I have specifically spared.”

Event Log

 

Even though there’s a terrible hidden truth behind it!

Misaka and Saten were at the usual family restaurant. With Shirai and Uiharu absent, Kongou showed up there. The three of them have noticed that the city was in a strange state.

 

Fufufufu. This is called observing the enemy’s actions.

While they were talking about Saturn, Saten suddenly brought up swimming. Misaka and Saten went to buy swimsuits.

 

It’s called a candid shot Uiharu.

On the way to the pool, they met Shirai and Uiharu. Noticing Shirai’s suspicious actions, Misaka destroyed Shirai’s digital camera. (END)

 

You can swim at amazing speeds

Shirai and Uiharu were waiting for them at the pool. After the four of them played in the pool, they chased a pervert that suddenly appeared and disappeared into the city. (END)

 

Time for Saten-san’s decisive interview assault!!

On a rampage, Saten headed downtown and disappeared. Concerned, Misaka pursued Saten together with Kongou.

 

Now that you mention it, I was discussing various things with Saten-san the other day

Searching for information about Saten, they showed up at the subdivision. They listened to what Konori, who was at the subdivision, had to say.

 

However, rather than saying she’s in the middle of patrolling, isn’t she in the middle of shopping?

They tried looking for Saten in the business district. However Saten wasn’t there.

 

Oh my, you’re the audience member from just now

Faced with a student who was astonished by their Tokiwadai uniforms, Kongou behaved as though she was a celebrity. Misaka went to look for Saten in the meanwhile, but she wasn’t there either.

 

After kicking, the point is to hurriedly back away and avert your gaze

Having the juice that Misaka treated her to get spilled, Kongou was enraged. This resulted in the arrest of a man from Skill-Out.

 

I’m worried about that Kongou Mitsuko being together with Onee-sama……

They ran across Shirai on patrol. She said she’d notify them if she discovered Saten.

 

I Kongou Mitsuko was accompanying you, and yet I have nothing to show for it……

They came across Wannai and Awatsuki in front of the station. The pair had also not yet found Saten.

 

Haaaaa, the single moment of pure bliss that is the fresh strawberry cream crepe……

They came across Uiharu stealthily eating a crepe in the middle of patrol. She said she’d notify them if she found Saten. In exchange they kept her eating a crepe a secret.

 

Now then, come with me you two

She discovered Saten being dragged away by Antiskill. The two of them were made to clean the city for the duration of summer vacation. (END)

 

UWAH, your body is hot Saten-san!

Uihara got in contact with them to say that she had found Saten. They defeated some men who appeared to be from Skill-Out who had surrounded Saten and a boy.

 

Nice to see you, Onee-sama. Nevertheless it is quite hot.

Misaka made Saten who had heatstroke rest at the family restaurant. They were then joined by Shirai and Uiharu who had finished their patrols.

 

……At any rate, it’s another urban legend on the net, huh

Since a crime prediction regarding an attack on a VIP was posted on the net, Antiskill was busy serving as the VIP’s bodyguards. Shirai and the rest were investigating the ‘Grim Reaper Kakiko independently.

 

In recognition of her achievements, she has been granted the authority to investigative independently.

They made a request for Misaka and Saten to cooperate with the ‘Grim Reaper Kakiko’ investigation. Under direction from the Atatsu Chiyo, the leader of the investigation team, they headed to an internet cafe.

 

Everyone wants to investigate together with Misaka-san

A ‘Person in a Knit Cap’ was shown in the surveillance camera footage. After this, Misaka and company split up to investigate.

 

It was a little bit of, that is, a fight

Misaka independently inquired of Skillout members in the vicinity. All the members fled though, so no clues were obtained (END)

 

Don’t be making light of inquiries

Shirai made inquiries in the immediate area and obtained two eyewitness testimonies regarding the ‘person in the knit cap’.

 

Geh, my cell’s battery has died!

Shirai freely used Teleport to continue investigating, only to end up becoming a lost child. During that time, the incident occurred. They had failed to prevent the crime. (END)

 

That aside, can you lend me your ear, Misaka-san?

By chance they once again met up with Kongou. She said she had encouraging information about the ‘person in the knit cap.’

 

Though it’s wasteful, I’ll have to dispose of them

They question a group of Skillouts who were hanging out but didn’t gain any information about the ‘person in the knit cap’.

 

Kongou-san, you watch too much television

The building Kongou said was suspicious turned to just be a Skillout gathering place.

 

Of course I was listening to you properly!

Misaka forcibly blew away the entrance to the abandoned building using her Railgun. However there was gunpowder in the building that caught fire, which exploded. They survived safely due to Shirai’s Teleport, but the investigation ended in failure. (END)

 

If not for my power, this door would not open forevermore

With Kongou’s information, they went to a derelict building where the ‘person in the knit cap’ had been coming and going from. By chance they discovered a hidden switch and were able to unlock the entrance.

 

F-For me, yes, the Blue Hawaii!

Misaka and Shirai took a rest until Uiharu and Saten met up with them. Having decided to eat shaved ice, Shirai ordered the Blue Hawaii flavor, but she had an ulterior motive.

 

From here we need to pursue the person in the knit cap, but……

Misaka paired up with Uiharu. They had a discussion about investigating from that point on.

 

Going by the footage, the suspect turned right into this alleyway……

Uiharu discovered the ‘person in the knit cap’ by analyzing previously recorded footage from the city’s surveillance cameras. The pair gave pursuit, but when they got there it was a dead end.

 

Huh? There was a quick response from the server……

Freely using Judgement and Antiskill’s servers, Uiharu ran an image search. As a result, the servers went down and she got stuck writing apology letters. (END)

 

How about I ask them again∼

They obtained information from a nearby Skill-Out turf on what seemed to be two destinations of the ‘Person in the Knit Cap’.

 

They’re giving off the impression of it being the latest fad, aren’t they?

There were a large number of fashion vocational schools there, with numerous people in knit caps.

 

……Wasn’t it roughly in this direction?

There were a large number of fashion vocational schools there, with numerous people in knit caps. Furthermore, a lot of time passed due to them getting lost, causing them to miss the dorm’s curfew. (END)

 

I’m underneath you, Misaka-san∼

The pair rammed the door down but Uiharu strained her back and couldn’t move as a result. The investigation of the abandoned building was taken over by Atatsu. (END)

 

Ouch ouch ouch……just hurt my buttocks is all

They finally arrived at the building that appeared to be the the destination of the ‘person in the knit cap’. The entrance was locked, but they successfully opened it with a bit of good luck.

 

To wish for something that much……

Misaka and Uiharu had some spare time until they met up with Shirai and Saten. Seeing Uiharu skillfully organizing data, Misaka found it interesting.

 

At times like this, only the people of the olden days would wander around blindly

Misaka paired up with Saten. Saten posted a request for information on the person in the knit cap on the internet.

 

……It certainly does look that way

They pursued the ‘Person in the Helmeted Cap’ that was on their mind as being similar to the person in the knit cap. However at that place were waterworks workers.

 

Though he was sighted here, I guess it’s not certain that he’s here now

They went to the shopping district based on information from the net. They had to decide whether to conduct inquiries in the area or whether to rely on eyewitness accounts from the net again.

 

Misaka-san, is there something up with the electromagnetic waves?

The pair got lost while making investigations.

 

(Well, I can’t tell her that we got lost)

The pair got lost while making investigations. They were then informed by Shirai that the VIP had been attacked. The investigation was a failure. (END)

 

That store, it’s the kind of place that’s dimly lit with only low quality surveillance cameras

New information was posted on the net. Among them were two types of information, one relating to a ‘white knit cap’ and the other to a ‘light blue knit cap’.

 

Perhaps we were a little over reliant on information from the net

The pair was contacted by Shirai while searching for the ‘white knit cap’. The VIP had been attacked. The investigation was a failure. (END)

 

Huh, it didn’t open. Why is that I wonder

Due to Saten using a suspicious hacking tool the electronic lock further solidified, becoming impossible to release. Misaka and company’s investigation came to an end. (END)

 

Even with several months I couldn’t unlock it by brute force

From the information on the ‘light blue knit cap’, they discovered a suspicious abandoned building. The entrance was locked with an electronic lock, but as far as Misaka the electromaster was concerned, unlocking such a thing wasn’t an issue at all.

 

So this is the hat specialty corner huh……ugh!

Misaka and Saten had some free time until they met up with Shirai and Uiharu. Misaka discovered a Gekota Cap, but she missed the chance to buy it.

 

Uiharuu, is it alright if I can just have a mouthful of a taste of that?

The four of them as a group realized that they should all fill their stomachs before rushing in. They had a meal a a crepe shop.

 

A large number of rockets were manufactured here!

In the abandoned building, there were tracesof a massive quantity of rockets being produced. Following the clues they’d collected up until that point, they considered whether there was any action they could take.

 

Quick, connect to a live network news site!

Misaka and the others had once again returned to the internet cafe, but then an attack on the VIP was reported on the news. (END)

 

Onee-sama, resisting is no good!!

Seeking to meet with the VIP directly, they conversely came to be suspected by Antiskill, and were arrested. (END)

 

Found it! In all likelihood the planned point of attack is here!!

Due to the transfer route acquired by Atatsu, they anticipated the point of attack. Misaka hurried to the scene using Shirai’s Teleport.

 

I guess you’re flipping a switch right now while laughing out loud

Misaka and Shirai hastened to the scene where the convoy escorting the VIP was under attack. One by one, the rockets that had been launched were successfully shot down by Misaka’s lightning attacks.

 

You’re wrong. It was the other way around

They successfully protected the police van, but it was a body double. Ichizawa Akiko’s transport route was changed according to the proposal by Atatsu Chiyo.

 

[……Atatsu-senpai, no, who are you?]

The person calling herself Atatsu Chiyo was certainly the ‘Grim Reaper Kakiko’. Utilizing Futaishi Kyousha who possessed the ability to copy brainwaves, she achieved her goal, obtaining the ‘Eighth Level Red’.

  1. Thanks. Is there a way to download the ISO patch to a physical copy of this game?

    Also, is there any chance of the last chapters being translated in the ebook?

    Like

    1. Currently no patch exists for this game specifically. The index game patch is playable on real hardware, but I don’t believe it can be applied to the physical copy (I might be wrong though).

      As for the final chapters, I intend to finish them immediately after Slashdog 2 at the latest. At that point I’ll contact Kotcrab about a possible patch.

      1. WOW! Thanks jeruTz!
        So, how does the Index patch get installed on the system exactly? Does that require modification? I have been told that the downloads only work on the digital games. Hopefully, I can just transfer a ISO file to the hardware?

        Also thanks for scheduling time to finish translating this ebook! I’m looking forward to it!

      2. The patched ISO file can be played on real hardware using custom firmware. I’ve never done it myself though so I’m not familiar with the process.

    1. It’s the action sequence scene. I forgot to number it and WordPress keeps freezing when I try to edit it. (This chapter is way to huge).

      EDIT: Fixed now.
