SFX: Bang bang
SFX: Ricochet ricochet
Kanou: Pant pant. Damn, I just can't hit them.
Kanou: And yet you managed to hit them.
Kanou: I'm losing confidence in myself here.
Kurata: I hope Mamiya-san is okay...
Kurata: Maybe my radio is broken.
Kurata: I can't seem to contact him.
Kanou: I can't...
Kanou: contact Makimura either.
Kurata: Does that mean...?
Kanou: Don't be silly!
Kanou: They wouldn't get taken out so easily!!
Kurata: We just need to believe that they are on the way to secure their route...
Kurata: while we make sure to secure the other route!
Kanou: Don't lose your focus, Kurata!
Text: Volume 1 is on sale now!
Kurata: One other thing, Kanou-san.
Kurata: The escape routes are the cornerstone of Exodus...
Kurata: so could you tell me what they are?
Kurata: If we get split up...
Kurata: I want both of us to be able to carry out the mission.
Kanou: That's a good point.
Kanou: The escape rou-
Voices: Were they over there?
Kanou: We can't let them find us! Let's go!
Mamiya: This is Condor.
Mamiya: Report your situation in Morse code.
SFX: Tap tap
Kurata: This is Pigeon.
Kurata: I still haven't gotten the information from Kanou.
Kurata: How about you?
Mamiya: We can't count on him anymore.
Mamiya: By a fluke, he realized what was going on...
Mamiya: and γ-team took him out before I could get any info out of him.
Mamiya: Don't kill Kanou yet.
Mamiya: Stay with him and keep him alive as long as possible so that we can keep tabs on Third-i's movements.

Title: File 19 Budding Feelings

Men: Move all these plants over by the Party Floor windows.
Men: We can use them to hide behind in case a helicopter attacks.
Fujimaru: Not good!
Fujimaru: If they move those at Point 1...!!
J: Using the plants to hide themselves is such a pain and so plain.
J: If they want cover from snipers, they could make a perfectly good human wall by having the foreign VIPs stand there.
Fujimaru: What are we going to do!?
J: All we can do...
J: is find some way to move those plants back...
J: or put a spare there.
Fujimaru: We can't move them back...
Fujimaru: so we'll have to use the spares!!
Fujimaru: Who has one!
J: Jacob does.
Fujimaru: Good! Thank goodness he's still on the party Floor!
Fujimaru: Okay, have him-
J: I can't.
J: Jacob can't leave that floor.
Fujimaru: That's right.
Fujimaru: The terrorists aren't allowed to take independent actions.
J: That's one of the pieces of information your hacking gave us beforehand.
J: Any independent actions will be seen as the actions of a disguised enemy or a traitor.
J: They will either be restrained or shot on the spot.
J: By having them all watching over each other, unity is guaranteed between these soldiers with no command and without knowing who the others are or what they look like.
J: It's a pretty good idea.
J: Cain and Abel have a spare too...
J: but it would completely ruin the schedule to have them return to Point 1.
J: We'd never make it in time.
J: Your boasting...
J: about how you are going to rescue all 220 of them has suddenly...
J: become impossible.
J: If we have Jacob do anything too forceful, the other blocks could become more alert.
J: That would be a problem.
Fujimaru: We need an excuse.
SFX: Scratch scratch
Fujimaru: But what...?
Fujimaru: That's it.
Fujimaru: What if he was accompanied by a hostage?
Fujimaru: Like taking the hostage to the bathroom or something?
J: That could indeed work as an excuse...
J: You understand, don't you?
J: We need a hostage that we can explain the situation to and have act.
J: That leaves...
J: only one option.
Fujimaru: We have no choice.
Fujimaru: In order to quickly recover within the limited time...
Fujimaru: we have to go with that.
Girl: Why are they lining up those plants?
Girl: What's happening?
Boy: Papa and mama look so scared...
Boy: Uuh...Are we...going to die?
Haruka: Don't cry, okay?
Haruka: You're a boy, right?
Haruka: If you look like that, you'll worry...
Haruka: your new friend.
Fujimaru: Can you hear me?
Fujimaru: If you can, tap your back teeth twice.
SFX: Tap tap
Fujimaru: There is...
Fujimaru: something I need you to do.
Fujimaru: To be honest...
Fujimaru: I don't want to ask this of you.
Fujimaru: very dangerous.
Fujimaru: You are the only one I can ask.
Fujimaru: If we can't recover now, our rescue operation will fail.
Fujimaru: If you're willing, tap your back teeth twice.
Fujimaru: If you have the slightest doubt, do it only once-
SFX: Tap tap
Haruka: I'll do it.
Haruka: there is something I can do...!
Haruka: I will do it...
Otoya: Once the party is over...
Otoya: I have something I want to talk with you about.
Otoya: And something I want to give you.
Fujimaru: First, look over at the tallest of the masked terrorists.
Fujimaru: He is currently holding his right hand to his ear.
SFX: Look around
Fujimaru: Go over and speak to Kujou pretending you have to use the bathroom.
Fujimaru: When that man approaches, tell him you need to go to the bathroom.
Fujimaru: If you understand...
Fujimaru: tap your back teeth twice.
SFX: Tap tap
Boy: What is it?
Haruka: That's right.
Haruka: I must...
Haruka: make sure everyone returns home safe!
Otoya: Mizusawa Hibiki.
Otoya: When you shot...
Otoya: before I did it wasn't because Fujimaru told you, was it?
Hibiki: No, Fujimaru would never tell me to do that.
Hibiki: I can tell.
Hibiki: I'm just that in love.
Otoya: Next time...
Otoya: I will shoot.
Otoya: If you really aren't a weapon...
Otoya: and are a human who is prepared to dirty her hands for the man she loves...
Otoya: then just like you did not allow me to become a murderer for Fujimaru's sake...
Otoya: I do not want you...
Otoya: to dirty yourself any more for Fujimaru's sake.
SFX: Hee hee
Hibiki: as you wish.
Hibiki: really do...
Hibiki: And also...
Hibiki: change others.
Hibiki: People are...
Hibiki: And not just Fujimaru.
Hibiki: Tons of kind people are out there.
Hibiki: It's scary.
Hibiki: If I wonder if the person might be kind...
Hibiki: or have those who are kind to him...
Hibiki: I might not be able to pull the trigger.
Hibiki: And then it would be me...
Hibiki: I don't want to die.
Hibiki: I want to live...
Hibiki: and have Fujimaru embrace me once more.
Hibiki: One day, I want to have his child.
Hibiki: And not a child like me that never knows her mother or father.
Hibiki: An irreplaceable-
Hibiki: I will overcome all of this
Hibiki: And return to Fujimaru's arms.
Hibiki: Let's hurry. We don't have time.
