genuine 'friends'.

Introduce me next time, ok?

Let's play an easy game! It's called...

37

text: True Follower Diagnosis

Marble: The rules are very simple
There's no need for all of you to do anything.

38

Marble: The ones playing are those who are watching this broadcast.
Now, dear audience, from now on these 10.000 people here will die one by one.

Marble: And you, their followers, will consequently die as well.
I'm sure you'd hate that.

Marble: That's why!

Marble: For only 3 minutes
you are allowed to un-follow people!

39

Marble: Now, go ahead and save yourself! As for the people in here

Marble: this means that your followers will break their bonds with you.

Marble: For those 'in a relationship',
do you believe your partner will stay with you?

Marble: Those who have their family members follow them, no worries!
I'm sure they're worried about you and keep following you!

40

Marble: Oh, before I forget. In your case,
if your follower count drops to 0,
unfortunately it's Game Over for you.

text (ataru): Huh... but then
I don't have a girlfriend, or family

text: Well, there's Yuri but... no, I don't want her to be in danger...
There's no guarantee I can clear this...
I need some to stay...

41

text (ataru): Otherwise
I'll die...

text: Is there someone you can truly reach out to?

Marble: By the way, just like the people in the real world you can check out your situation
on your mobile phone.

Marble: C'mon

text: Do you have someone's 'trust'?

Marble: Countdown
start!!

42

text (ataru): My online friends are always nice to me...
How many... will I have left...

screen text: followers

Marble: During this time only
you can freely call or message people in the real world.
