Episode 1: [A Better Place 2 Die]
Box: In the beginning of the 21st century, a meteorite struck a country in the far east.
Box: It did not result in a world-wide catastrophe.
However, it was enough to change the way things are in one country.

Page 2
Box: The area around the meteorite impact---known as "Moon Edge".
Man: Ah---
Girl: ...
Someone: Sorry, young lady,
But I would appreciate it if you don't stand over there like that.

Page 3
Girl: ...How come?
Someone: ---I'm looking for a mischievous kitten.
Someone: You standing there stands out too much.
Girl: A cat in a place like this?
Someone: No, a KITTEN.
Someone: ...And what are you doing here, young lady?
Girl: I'm also searching.

For a place to die---

Page 6
Is not a pleasant thing to say.

Do you think I'll die if I drop down from here?

Page 8
Man: Hm...
Man: Who knows---
Man: !!
Man: Don't move! If you don't get in the way---

Page 9
Man: !!
Man: Ah...!?
Man: !!
Man: You---!!
Man: ---Hoh.

Page 10
Man: Even if it's the Moon Edge, I still don't like seeing you wave around that toy in your hand.
Man: Who...!
Man: Who are you----!?
Man: Just an ally of justice happened to pass by.
Man: Let the girl go.
Man: Kuh...!

Man: Ah!!

Page 15

Page 16

Page 17
Man: ...I don't see any.
Man: From that height, we were lucky.
Man: It had at the height of 5 floors.
Man: If you need a change of clothes, just randomly pick something from there.
Man: Although there aren't anything for women.
Girl: ...
Man: ...I'm doing laundry.

Page 18
Man: ---Oh.
SFX: *Buuuun buuuun*
Man: It's me.
Man: Sorry, but there's no progress.

Page 19
Guy: No, it's not about that woman.
I have a request that takes top priority.
Guy: There's someone I want you to find.
A child in the early 10's---
Man: ...Sorry, I can't help you right now.
Man: I'm currently involved with a strange child---
Guy: A strange child?
Man: A young teenage girl who's wearing a straitjacket---
Man: ...Hey, what are---?

Page 20
...You lost her?

Page 21
Man: I-I'm sorry, well...an unknown man got in the way...
Man: ...
Man: H-however, I'm about to put in a search request,
Man: To the intelligence at Moon Edge.
Man: The brat's movement patterns are easy to figure out, so as soon as we---

Page 22
Man: Kah...
Man: Who told you to ask for help from people "below"?
Man: You useless scum.

Page 23

Page 24
Man: What are you---!?
Phone: ---
Guy: ...
Guy: A girl in a straitjacket huh...
Someone: Aaah!? The hell do you lot want---!?
Someone: Hey!! Ah! Kah---!!

Page 25

Page 26
Guy: ...You are in luck.
Guy: I just received information from a man who secured a person of said description.
Man: ...

Page 27
Man: ...I suggest that you don't get involved any further in this matter.
Guy: ...A threat?
Man: Just an advice.
Guy: ...Ok. Nothing happened.
Guy: No request and no records.
Man: Smart choice.
Guy: It doesn't matter to me who you people are.
As long as you pay the appropriate amount.

Page 28
Takeru: The name's Takeru.
Girl: ...
Takeru: It's self-introduction.
Takeru: Your turn now.
Girl: ...Why did you do something like that?

Page 29
Takeru: ...It's like saving someone drowning right in front of you, you know?
Takeru: Do I need a reason?
Girl: ...Even though I may be the evil one here?
Takeru: ...I guess that's true.
Takeru: I didn't think about that one.
Takeru: ...
Takeru: Here's a transmitter.
Takeru: It was attached to your clothes.
Girl: ...

Page 30
Takeru: No need to worry.
Takeru: It's already broken.
Takeru: Probably when we dropped down from the building.
Takeru: That's one good thing, at least.
Girl: ...What are you going to do?
Takeru: Let's see...if you tell me about your situation, I can help you.
Girl: That's impossible.
Takeru: Despite how I look, I'm actually quite reliable.

Page 31
Girl: ...
Girl: Kill...me.
Takeru: ...
Girl: You can't, can you?
Takeru: Why do you---

Page 32

Page 33
Takeru: What--?
Girl: Just look.
Takeru: ---!!

Page 34
An immortal body.

Page 35
Takeru: Im...mortal.
Girl: And a guinea pig of those people.
Takeru: Those people?
Girl: The ones who are doing research on monsters like me.
Girl: Those people from before are their underlings.
Girl: If you want to be useful, kill me.
Girl: It's the only way for me to gain freedom.

Page 36
Girl: I may die if you shoot my head.
Girl: If my head gets severed, or---
Takeru: Wai...wait a second!!
Takeru: But you shouldn't just die...
Takeru: Living has its good---
Girl: And is there any point in living on as those people's guinea pig?

Takeru: Hah

Page 43
Takeru: Hah
Takeru: Hah
Takeru(thought): What will happen...after I get away...
Takeru: Hah
Takeru(thought): Just ahead...
Takeru(thought): I've been told...that there's something for me...
Takeru(thought): What is it---

Page 44
...Let me take up some of your time.

Page 45
Man: Did you think---
That you could run away from our Gladsheim group?
Girl: If you want to kill me, go ahead...It's just what I wanted.

Page 46
Man: Oh I won't be killing you.
After all, you are our important guinea pig.
Man: ...Although, I have my interests.
Man: Very unique personal interests...

Page 47
Man: Just how far does your immortality go...
Man: And how much I have to cut in order to kill you.
I want to see the line in between life and death.
Man: It's just my little bit of curiosity.

Page 48
Man: ...What is the boss doing at a place like this---
Man: Just shut up and follow orders---
Man: Hm...!?
Man: Hey, stop.
No entry beyond this point.
Man: Tch...can't you hear me? Beyond this point---

Page 49
(Looks like he's dancing)

Page 50
Takeru: ...I'm not back to my normal condition yet.
Takeru: Forgive me if hit you in a bad spot...
Takeru: But then again...you did punch many holes through me.
So I guess it's just returning the favor.

Page 51
Don't move.
Throw away your weapons and show yourself.
Or else she will die.

Page 52
Girl: ...
Man: So you are the man in question...
Man: I heard that you were taken care of...
...But seems like I have to put up with incompetent subordinates again.
Takeru: Gladsheim...

Page 53
Man: !!
Takeru: You sure are carefree for an agent from Gladsheim.
Man: ...
Man: ...where did you hear that name?
Takeru: ...Who knows.

Page 54
Man: I'll deal with you later.
Man: Go take a nap for a while.
Girl: ...

Page 55
Well then---
We were interrupted, but let's conti---

Page 56

Page 57
Takeru: Phew---
Takeru: I must be really sluggish...
Takeru: To not have seen your gun.
Man: Kuh...
Man(thought): ...What's going on!?

Page 58
Man(thought): It wasn't a fatal wound,
Man(thought): But he shouldn't be able to move.
Takeru: What's wrong?
Takeru: It should be a familiar sight, no?
Man: ---!?
Man: Tch...!

Page 59
...That's right, it's better this way.

Man: Who are---
Takeru: The man you guys know very well.

Page 71

Page 72
Girl: Just now...
Girl: Who are---
Man: I'm an ally of justice passing by.
Girl: Why are you doing this---
Man: Didn't I tell you?
Man: Do I need a reason?
Girl: ...

Page 73
Man: Let's go.
Man: ...Hm?
Girl: ...Seems like I took up some of your time.
Girl: But it's enough now.
Man: Hey...!?

Page 74
Girl: The time will come when I get caught again.
Girl: Even if I get lucky and extend the time of my freedom,
There's no point in living on with this body of mine.
Takeru: What are you saying!?
If you stay alive, then I'm sure---!!
Girl: ...This last meeting by chance wasn't bad.

Page 75

Page 76
Takeru: It isn't by chance!!
I'm sure...that there was a reason we met!!
Girl: As if---!!
Takeru: ...We're the same.
Girl: ...?

Page 77
Takeru: I'm the same as you!!
Takeru: This body of mine---
Was also turned immortal by Gladsheim!!
Girl: ---!!

Page 78
Girl: ...You're...lying.
Takeru: You saw with your own eyes, didn't you?
Girl: ...

Page 79
Takeru: Don't talk about dying.
Takeru: I'm sure that there's a reason to live even with your body.
Takeru: Let's look for that reason together!!
Girl: As if...I can find it.
Takeru: ...If you can't...
Then the two of us will just have to create one---

Page 80
I'm sure there's a better place to die than here.
Until you find it---

Page 81
Let's live on together.

Page 82
Takeru: It's the bill for fixing the door and the interior.
Guy: ...
Guy: ...What happened to those men?
Takeru: Who knows.
Takeru: They took the kid and disappeared somewhere.

Page 83
Takeru: I was unconscious, so no idea what happened after that...
Guy: ...What misfortune.
Takeru: Thanks to you.

Page 84
Girl: Using those kinds of tricks,
Won't be able to deceive the pursuers.
Takeru: You should trust me, since we still have a long road ahead of us.
Takeru: Well, we'll just deal with it when the find out.

Page 85
Takeru: ...Oh yeah.
Takeru: I still don't know your name,
Young lady.
Konoha: ...
Konoha: ...Stop calling me young lady.
Takeru: See?
Konoha: ...
Konoha: It's Konoha...
Takeru: Konoha--- Konoha, huh...It's a good name.

Page 86
Nice to meet you, Konoha.
