Little Jumper chapter 010
BUBBLE1: They're here.
SMALLBUBBLE1-3: uiiiiiin ((the high-pitched sound of an electronic device charging up))
BUBBLE1: The security looks tight.
BUBBLE2: Are we really going in?
BUBBLE4: No turning back!
BUBBLE5: Let's go, Pancakes!
BUBBLE6: How insulting!
BUBBLE7: Stop calling me Pa--

BUBBLE1: In the end
BUBBLE2: we couldn't break through the electromagnetic shield that surrounded the building,
BUBBLE3: and Kozakura-san used up all her strength, so we just went home.
BUBBLE1: What's an 'electromagnetic shield?'
BUBBLE2: I don't know, either.
BUBBLE3: I guess it's some kind of barrier.
BUBBLE4: What's a 'barrier?'
BUBBLE5: Please don't ask m--
BUBBLE6: Do NOT talk about these things with civilians.
BUBBLE7: And, why the hell do I have to wear this!?
BUBBLE8: I'm gonna kill you!
BUBBLE1: Why're YOU whining? You get to wear a cute maid's outfit!
BUBBLE2: I have to look like a regular employee since I'm still in middle school.
BUBBLE3: You're so lucky.
BUBBLE1: YOU'RE DEAD, PANCAKES!
BUBBLE2: STOP CALLING ME PANCAKES!
BUBBLE3: Try and do that again! You'll be working for me for the rest of your lives without pay!
TEXT: In a sillier outfit, too!
BUBBLE4: Y-yes, ma'am.
BUBBLE1: Kozakura-san, please act more maturely and endure this a bit longer.
BUBBLE2: Plus, if you drag me into this I won't get paid.
BUBBLE3: I'm already being forced to work here and wear this stupid thing...
BUBBLE4: You really expect me to take much more of this?
BUBBLE5: This is just until we rescue Fuwa-san, right?
BUBBLE8: Are those Fuwa-san and Narusawa-san guys inside
BUBBLE9: of that Iwakami Heavy Industries building?
TEXT1: Kozakura-san put a tracking device
TEXT2: on Himura Saeko, another Rebuilt.
TEXT3: The signal lead us there.
TEXT4: "Iwasaki Heavy Industries Prototype Research & Development Laboratory."
TEXT5: Iwasaki is the third largest industrial group in Japan, after Mitsushima and Tomozumi.
TEXT1: We've investigated around Iwasaki for clues about Fuwa-san and Narusawa,
TEXT2: but we've come up with nothing
TEXT3: That's not all...
BUBBLE1: There are sensors and high voltage cables blocking any infiltration paths inside, whether it's above or below ground.
BUBBLE2: We're at a loss.
BUBBLE5: can't you just forget about all this once you get info on your mom?
BUBBLE6: Well, that's what -I- wanna do.
BUBBLE1: Provision of that information will be properly handled,
BUBBLE2: but will not be released under my own discretion.
BUBBLE3: That matter will be attended to
BUBBLE4: after the recovery of my superior, Fuwa.
BUBBLE5: Nice. That's a public official for you.
BUBBLE6: Shut up! This has nothing to do with civilians!
BUBBLE7: Is it okay for you to be rude with your customers, miss waitress?
BUBBLE9: There's a way for you to infiltrate enemy territory.
BUBBLE1: This is a magnetic field stabilizer.
BUBBLE2: It will cancel out any unnecessary electromagnetic fields.
BUBBLE3: He'll get caught carrying something this big, right?
BUBBLE4: We have no choice, they aren't made any smaller than this.
BUBBLE1: Okay, listen: if you think you're going to get caught,
BUBBLE2: try and fool them.
BUBBLE3: gyuu (the machine has been turned on)
BUBBLE4: What will happen when he brings that inside?
BUBBLE5: The bodies of us Rebuilts are collections of unstable particles.
BUBBLE6: With the absence of magnetic fields that can disturb these particles,
BUBBLE7: we're able to pass through any substance.
BUBBLE8: Only the clothing in your disc will pass with you, though.
BUBBLE1: Here's our problem:
BUBBLE2: this machine needs to be activated inside of the building to disrupt the surrounding electromagnetic shield.
BUBBLE3: Unfortunately, the output is too small,
BUBBLE4: so the machine's effects only last twenty to thirty seconds.
BUBBLE5: Just walk up to the main gate without looking suspicious, okay?
BUBBLE6: Activate the device at 8PM exactly. We'll slip inside afterwards.
BUBBLE7: Good luck, dad!
TEXT1: 'Good luck'?
TEXT2: Just what are they expecting...?
BUBBLE1: If Ichinose, who is neither public security nor a Rebuilt,
BUBBLE2: heads straight up to the main gate and asks to meet with that Himura girl
BUBBLE3: they'll take Ichinose while letting their guard down.
TEXT1: Are you serious...?
BUBBLE4: I see! Yeah, that can work.
BUBBLE5: Since dad still exists seventeen years in the future, this should work out fine.
TEXT2: Do they really think
TEXT3: this will work out!?
SIGN: Iwasaki Heavy Industries Prototype Research & Development Laboratory Main Gate
BUBBLE1: Himura Saeko?
BUBBLE4: If she's not here, I'll just go home...
BUBBLE5: What section does this Himura belong to?
BUBBLE6: What's your business here?
BUBBLE8: I'm going--
BUBBLE9-11: Hee Hee Hee
BUBBLE1-5: Hee Hee Hee
BUBBLE7: Can I go home? Please?
TEXT1: Right this way.
BUBBLE2: You came here alone? Pretty brave of you, guy.
BUBBLE3: Wh-What should I do? What COULD I do?
BUBBLE4: I just don't know...
BUBBLE5: I need to get--
BUBBLE6: It's been a while,
BUBBLE7: Ichinose Hiroki.
BUBBLE1: It's me.
BUBBLE2: Narusawa Takumu, from Teishuin University.
BUBBLE3: Well, well!
BUBBLE4: It's rare for the professor himself to welcome our guests.
BUBBLE5: Come on, Ichinose.
BUBBLE6: We need to celebrate our reunion with a few drinks.
BUBBLE7: I've got a lot to repay you for, after all.
TEXT1: Uh, no...
BUBBLE1: Wait, wait!
BUBBLE2: I don't know you!
BUBBLE4: History's an interesting thing, huh?
BUBBLE5: Am I the chicken and you're the egg?
BUBBLE6: Or, are you the chicken and I'M the egg?
BUBBLE8: Bringing Chimari along to the past,
BUBBLE9: Was that a coincidence?
BUBBLE10: Or, was it fate...?
BUBBLE1: What are you after!? Why are you after Chima!?
BUBBLE2: "The Rebuilt are dangerous and
BUBBLE3: their recovery disc must be restricted."
BUBBLE4: The one who taught me that
BUBBLE5: was YOU.
BUBBLE6: Unfortunately, while in the future,
BUBBLE7: I doubted your words.
BUBBLE1: After fleeing to the past and becoming a Rebuilt myself, though,
BUBBLE2: I have to agree with you.
BUBBLE3: I was the fool
BUBBLE4: while you were the sage.
BUBBLE5: However, Ichinose!
BUBBLE6: You made a wrong decision!
BUBBLE7: That's why I'm here: to change the future!
BUBBLE1: Change the future?
BUBBLE2: I have no idea what you're talking about!
BUBBLE4: That's fine for now.
BUBBLE5: It may be fine for you, but what about--
BUBBLE6: It's 8PM.
BUBBLE2: Forgive me, Ichinose.
BUBBLE3: Himura-kun can be little extreme.
BUBBLE4: I heard that she attacked you all the other day.
BUBBLE5: I had no knowledge of that, I assure you.
TEXT2: It's time!
BUBBLE3: It's TJ-1 and her ridiculous strength!
TEXT1: Did she burst through the shield!?
BUBBLE4: Leave this to him.
BUBBLE5: Narusawa! You're under arrest!
BUBBLE1: Run, Chima!
BUBBLE4: I leave the rest to you, Kozakura!
BOX1: 'Whatever will be,
BOX2: will be', huh...
BOX3: What about the future!?
