Scene 17: Romantic Ghost Killer
1: --a diet member became a victim of a terrorist attack during a public speech.
2(2b): The SDF has been deployed to important governmental posts and are on guard now. The city is gradually displaying more and more caution towards the ESPers.
3(2b): Master...do you know how Ayumu-kun's been?
4: He's alright, for now.
5: He's just been shut up in his room, studying.
6(2b): Even at times like this, he doesn't show any signs of stress. What a guy...
7(small): remote view
1: --we are uncertain of the true faces of the enemy, and they can appear and disappear at any time.
2: It's been nothing but bad news lately.
3: Each day brings new gloom.
5: I know this isn't the time, but...
1: Wanna go on a date with me this weekend?
1: --lately, at the beach by the aquarium,
2: there have been reports of couples getting attacked by ghosts...
3: ...it may have something to do with an ESPer.
4: I was so surprised...
5(2b): In other words, he wants us to disguise ourselves as a couple and investigate the place...
6: Things have been pretty bad lately.
7: I guess it's best to help the people out as much as we can.
9: my heart is still beating.
1(2b): --I mean, I know what my own feelings are, but...
2: why did he have to purposefully call it a "date?"
3: That'll just make me think about it even more!
1: --Do you even have clothes for a date, Rinka-san?
2(2b): Nooo! Everything but my school uniform burned up in the fire.
3(2b): Ahh...ok then, I know a cheap place.
4(2b): Good thing it's still warm out! You can just go in a one piece. It's cool AND economic!
5: I'll let you borrow one of my bags.
7(2b): But I...I've never bought one of these before...
1: Well, if I have to buy something, I'd rather buy a T-shirt, or something I can wear normally too...
2: You can wear a one piece, no problem!
3: Besides, you may be going there to investigate, but it doesn't mean you AREN'T on a date!
4: This is your chance to show him your cute side, which he usually doesn't get to see!!
5: If he goes to the aquarium with you while you look gorgeous...
6: I'm sure that even Azuma-san will be starstruck!
8: --this may be my chance...I still wonder about Minami, though...
9: That reminds me, I saw on TV once that in countries with lots of terrorism, people bring guns when they go on dates...
1(2b): Now is finally time to use the money I've been saving up for years...that I rescued from the charred remains!
4: A piggy bank?!
5: This is all for a just reason!
6: To fight terrorism!!
1(2b): --I really am sorry...about keeping my ability secret...
3: I'm not with the terrorists.
4: I'm just me.
5: Hardly different from normal people.
6: That's not the problem here...
1(2b): If people find out about you...it'll be like I've betrayed the trust of the people!!
2(2b): Next week is the national assembly...losing my job won't be half the trouble!!
3: But...if it wasn't for my ESP,
4: I wouldn't have been able to save you.
5(2b): What should I...have done?
1: --finally, the day of the date came.
2: Do I really look alright..?
3: One piece - 1000 yen
4: Bag - rented from Murasaki
5: Light make-up - borrowed from Master
6: Sandals - 500 yen
7: Azuma-san...? I just left my house now.
8: OK, just wait there.
9: Break a leg!
10(2b): Alright. Shall we be off?
1: Teleportation makes meeting up so easy!
2: We can go anywhere, and it's absolutely free!
3: What an economic guy!
4: He's the best!
5: Want to eat something?
6: Sure. We can split it.
7(2b): --I checked up on the urban legends. Apparently, three couples were attacked by the ghost.
8: But no one's been actually hurt, so the police haven't gotten involved.
1: Do you think the ESPer had something against those couples...?
2: I dunno. Either way, it isn't any serious terrorism.
3: Maybe the ghost itself is some kind of illusion...
4: An illusion?
7(2b): Maybe someone has something to hide...and they don't want anyone coming near it.
2: a secret hideout or something...
3: Now that he mentions it...this place is pretty dead for a weekend.
4: But it might actually be a real ghost, too.
5: But that's fine with me.
6: It might be easier than fighting an instructor.
1(2b): I can't believe we haven't found anything yet...sorry for calling you all the way out here.
2(2b): No! This is so fun!! Besides, I didn't even get to go to the beach over summer.
2: I wanted to look out on a view like this
3: with someone I like...
4(2b): Only ESP can beat ESP...
5: --I know I'm still weak...
6: I know there are things...
7: only I can do.
8: And I want to do them as best I can.
9: That's how I've come to feel.
1: And it's all because
2: of spending time with you, Azuma-san.
3(2b): It's funny...at first
4: I thought he was just a weirdo.
5: What an eyesore...
6: Getting hot and bothered, are you?
1: If you want to get that hot,
2: then I'll send you both down into an inferno!
3: It's heeeeeere!!!
4: It came through the window...
1(2b): Hyahyahya!! I did it...
2: I finally...killed someone!
4: Scream until your voices reach "the one"...
5: Then I too will become...
6: an ESP terrorist!!
7: --you can use ESP?
1(2b): She's a hit-and-runner...a reserve terrorist?
2: These aren't my fighting clothes!!
3: What...how did you get over there?!
4: This is my only dress...
5: How dare you?!
1: It passed through her?!
3: She can turn transparent just like you!!
1: She's just...
2: like me?
3: Not only is she attacking people...
4: for a stupid reason...
5: She's an ESPer...
7: just like me...
1: Enough with the terrorism!!
3: The wannabe hero's
4: gotten in my way again, it seems.
1: We'll take her now, on suspicion of assault...
2: But we won't be able to keep for long.
3: Is her ESP really gone?
5: How dare you?!
6: I was so close to meeting "the one!!"
7: "The one?" Who's this person you keep talking about...?
8: Heh...isn't it obvious?
9: The god of the new human race.
1: He heard about my ghost attacks...
2(2b): and sent a servant to come test me...
3: They told me that if I wanted to join them...
4: I had to prove my power as an ESPer to them.
5: If only had I known that sooner...
6: I would have killed more people...
7: A murder test...
8: by the terrorists?
1: The ESP district
2: I wish to create
3: is one that fears no persecution, regulations
4: or idiotic censorship from the government...
1: One where people can evolve their own abilities and techniques.
2: A free paradise.
3(2b): --We'll use the sky tree to complete our plan.
4: Then, this city will have no choice but to meet our demands.
1(2b): --you plan to take over Shinjuku? Then control the humans?
2: It's our right as a superior race.
3: Now, how about joining me...
4: in order to perfect this new world?
5: Kuroi Kozuki.
1: I didn't raise you so that you could turn out like this!
2: At this rate you won't get into high school, or even get a good job!
3(2b): knock knock
2(2b): To Ayumu-kun - I found your glasses by the station after they were blown off you, so I snuck off and grabbed them.
3: Also, I made some cookies, so give them a try.
4: That girl...
I owe my life to you. You were so cool, like a true hero of justice.
5(2b): --I'm sorry! Please forgive us!!
1: ...what about me
2: was heroic...?
3: --Good morning, Rinka-san.
4: Your clothes were so cute yesterday, by the way.
6: you tell me?!
1: Let's hang out again,
2: on a REAL date.
3: --my life as I know it ends here...
4: I hope...we'll be able to.
5: Judging from what happened yesterday, our enemies have grown over the summer.
6: Even if I have no idea about what's yet to come.
7(2b): --true. I don't know how long we'll be able to relax like this...
2: That's exactly why,
3: As long as he's here...
4: I want to be with you...
--I feel like I can overcome
3: --This world will never revert
4: to what it used to be...
1: --no matter how many miracles
2: human love creates.
