Men: Is that it!?
Kashiwagi: What is it?
Men: It's that top secret matter...
Kashiwagi: You mean...
Kashiwagi: the Level 7 that is...
Kashiwagi: going to start training here?
Men: Yes, the rumor is that it's a small-
Men: I-I have to get to work!!
Men: Me, too!
Chief: Are you...
Chief: the new staff member?
Kashiwagi: My name is Kashiwagi Oboro.
Kashiwagi: I've been assigned to the executive department, chief!
Chief: I see.
Chief: This place has more sensitive information than even the HQ.
Chief: Refrain from spreading rumors!
Kashiwagi: Yes, sir!
Kashiwagi: The chief himself has come to the laboratory...
Kashiwagi: and he's skipping there.
SFX: Hm hmmm hm hmm
Kashiwagi: BABEL certainly has...
Kashiwagi: some odd publicity.
Kashiwagi: This is an important department and it won't look bad on my old school or for bureaucracy.
Book title: Management
Book author: Drucker
Kashiwagi: This organization has a ways to go.
Kashiwagi: It looks like there is a real reason to work here.
Chief: For so long our country had no Level 7's...
Chief: and now we have 3!!
Chief: Aoi-kun is still being monitored at her own home, but she will eventually come here.
Chief: And they are all 4 years old!!
Chief: Japan's future is here!!
Mother: I know you'll be lonely...
Mother: but be a good girl.
Mother: We'll make sure to come see you on every visiting day.
Minamoto: You said that...
Minamoto: but wasn't it actually...
Minamoto: tough to be separated from your parents at that age?
Shiho: But I was a Psychometer...
Shiho: so I knew why it was happening.
Shiho: Mama was on the verge of neurosis at having her daughter always reading her innermost thoughts...
Shiho: and I knew that everyone around me was afraid of me.
Shiho: If I'm here...
Shiho: no one has to be troubled.
Shiho: And I have a servant here.
Book: The Spider's Thread
Chief: If you need anything else, just ask, okay!?
Chief: You can have picture books, toys, and snacks!!
Shiho: Hey, chief.
Shiho: When will this "Kaoru" girl...
Shiho: be coming here?
Chief: You read my mind, didn't you!?
Chief: I told you not to do that! And you're supposed to be training to keep your powers in check.
Shiho: I can still see this.
Chief: I see, so you saw it!!?
Chief: That's our country's treasure for you!! What an amazing level!!
Shiho: Enough of that.
Chief: She's been here...
Chief: for a year now.
Chief: She's a Psychokinetic.
Chief: Her power control has stabilized and her limiter is doing better...
Chief: so I was thinking of introducing her to you soon.
Shiho: prefer being alone.
Shiho: Even if she's the same level...
Shiho: I bet she won't like me either.
Chief: What she doesn't like...
Chief: are her own powers.
Chief: With her powers, she could end up hurting someone she cares about.
Chief: You two are the same.
Chief: I'm sure you'll make good friends.
Shiho: We aren't the same.
Shiho: Of course the child who can read your mind will be the disturbing one.
Chief: you'll know before long.
Shiho: Who's she?
Chief: Nogami Aoi-kun.
Chief: She's a Level 7 Teleporter.
Chief: She was found earlier than you...
Chief: but you have more experience here.
Chief: Try to get along with her.
Shiho: If she was found before me...
Shiho: why was she only now brought here?
Kashiwagi: She was discovered by an examination of her psychic waves...
Kashiwagi: but we didn't know then if her powers would actually activate or not.
Kashiwagi: Teleportation requires many different powers at once.
Shiho: Who is she?
Chief: My new secretary.
Chief: I chose her because she is very good at her job.
Shiho: Well, whatever.
Shiho: Nice to meet you.
Aoi: Nice to meet you...
Aoi: Mom is busy with Yuuki...
Aoi: and it'll help dad with his job if I come here...
Aoi: It would be better if I'm not there, so I just have to bear with it...
Shiho: This girl...
Shiho: is cute but annoying!!
Shiho: She pisses me off!!
Shiho: She's just a normal kid!
Shiho: She's just lonely because she misses her family!!
Shiho: She only had something bad happen to her because of her powers once...
Shiho: so why is she acting like she has it worst!?
Shiho: What a cute stuffed animal.
Shiho: Can I see it?
Paper: Shitty bear
Minamoto: That's horrible.
Shiho: she looked so much happier than me.
Shiho: And I also felt that...
Shiho: I should just make her hate me before she became afraid of my powers.
Shiho: soon afterwards...
Shiho: met Kaoru-chan.
