[box]: St. Ursula’s Girls High School
: Seven Years Later
Makoto: Yes, there is, Sasaki-kun! / Dozens of girls from my school have been attacked already!
Sasaki: You liar. If that had happened, everybody’d know about it by now.
[inset (above logo)] : The years since graduation have flown by…. But even so, Mahora Academy remains as lively as ever??
Makoto: And I said, that’s because all it does is take everyone’s underwear!
Sasaki: Heh! What’s that supposed to mean?
Makoto: But it’s super terrifying! <aside: and scary! >
Sasaki: Well, my big sis apparently got attacked by a vampire around here once, so maybe there is something out there.
Makoto: A what?! That’s really scary!
Sasaki: Don’t you worry. Anything shows its face, and I’ll bust its head in!
Makoto: Wh—what’s that?
Makoto: Ah… Ahhh…
Nearly two years had passed since the existence of magic and the magical world was revealed to the world at large. / At places on Earth close to the spiritual world, vagrants from the magical world, magical beasts, and magical objects illegally came to Earth.
As such, there was a constant increase in the number of magical crimes, magical monster attacks, and magical disasters. The authorities were completely unprepared, and fell into chaos.

In order to protect the innocent civilians, a group of girls have begun working in secret.
They are the magical girls known as the Ministra Negi
Extra: WHAT?! You were attacked, too, Class Rep? / Are—are you all right?
Makoto: Y-yeah. The same thing happened to me as everyone else…
Extra: Then your bra and panties were stolen without a sound?!
Extra: What about him? Did he touch your breasts?
Makoto: Well, umm…
Makoto: Y—yeah. He… he groped them.
Extra: Gyahh! I knew it! / He’s a pervert! He’s a perverted poltergeist! / What’d he look like?
Makoto: He kind of looked like a tiger with horns growing out of his head… It was really scary.
Extra: Really?! That’s scary! I’d die if I saw something like that! / No, it could be worse. I mean, there’s that girl in the class next door that said she was attacked by a giant earthworm. / Yuck!
Extra: What are the police doing, letting something like that prowl around here! / They wouldn’t believe us if we told them about ghosts or monsters. / No—I heard a rumor that a squad that set out to hunt all came back empty-handed—and naked. / Really? Then somebody call in the SDF!
Extra: Can’t you do something about it, Class Rep? / A third of us have already been attacked! / The teachers are useless! / Even if we head home in groups, the whole group is attacked! / I’m so scared, I might stop going to school!
Makoto: I… Even if you ask me, I…
Makoto: Hah… / Things have gotten so hard…
Makoto: I can’t believe it was even interested in my underwear… / Ah..
Sasaki: Hey. / Come with me, Makoto.
Makoto: A… a specialist?
Sasaki: Yeah. A specialist at exorcising monsters. There’s not much else we can do by ourselves, after all.
Makoto: Sa—sasaki-kun, I didn’t know you were interested in that sort of thing… <aside: Occult magazines, and stuff… >
Sasaki: Of course I’m not! But that was a definitely a monster back there, right?
Sasaki: Ah, here it is.
Sasaki: She’s an old friend of my sister’s. Apparently, she became a detective after returning from studying abroad.
Makoto: A—a detective?
Sasaki: Yep. A detective specializing in monsters, ghosts, and mysterious phenomena.
Makoto: There’s really people like that, huh… She seems like someone straight out of a manga.
Makoto: Is anyone here?
Sasaki: She should be; I called ahead. / Oh, it’s open.
Sasaki: Excuse me; I’m the person who made an appointment…
Yue: Bgh… Hmm? / What is it?
Yue: Huh? You guys… Customers? / I really don’t have time for you today… / Wait? Aren’t you… Aren’t you Sasaki-san’s…?
[book]: Fluid Mechanics in a Vacuum
Sasaki: Ah, yes. Nice to meet you. I’m her little brother, Kagehisa.
Yue: That’s right… Well then, I guess I have to do it. / Ah—could you give me a minute to mix up some tea?
Yue: Here you go. It’s on the house. / You really look like you could use a boost.
Yue: … So let’s see here: girls are getting their underwear stolen by a monster on the way to and from school?
Makoto: Hey, this is really good!
Sasaki: You’re kidding!
Yue: To be certain, the number of victims and attacks is simply too large for a mere underwear thief.
Yue: Alright. I’ll take on your request.
Yue: Not that I really want to…
*ISSDA = International Solar System Development Association
Yue: If I want to work for the ISSDA, I don’t have time for things like this. <aside: I should have known the degrees I earned in the Magical World wouldn’t apply in this one. > [note: guessing slightly on blurred kanji here] / I shouldn’t, but… why should I spend the little time I have to work a case or two on something like this… <aside: Hah… >
Yue: Well, at any rate, I can’t just leave things as they are. After all, I’m the only specialist in the area. / And I need the money.
Yue: So let’s go get this taken care of. Please take me to the sight of the attack.
Yue: Hmm… This definitely looks like my line of work.
Yue: This was the work of a magical beast master… no. / A bug master… I think?
Sasaki: Whoa, what’s that?! So cool! Something’s coming from her eye!
Sasaki: Hey, Yue-san, look at this!
Yue: A long, silver hair… / That would mean…
Yue: It’s only been a day; the residual magical energy should still… / As I thought—a demon.
Yue: It seems the criminal is more dangerous than I had previously suspected.
Makoto: It is? Then…
Yue: Yes… I must get serious. And I’ll need your help as well. / I need to gather as much evidence as I can by tomorrow.
Yue: Oh? This is perfect. / You did well, gathering so much data in so short a time.
Sasaki: Class Rep is really popular, so…
Yue: With this, I can safely say that I’ll have the case solved before the day is out.
Makoto: Really? That’s amazing!
Sasaki: But Yue-san, look at this! Your mail is just piling up.
Sasaki: And this one’s from today… / Oh?
Sasaki: Ah, there’s some pictures of my big sis! And they’re from when you were in middle school, Yue-san.
Sasaki: This one guy seems to show up in a lot of the pictures, huh.
Makoto: Hey, he has a really nice smile!
Yue: Do you really have the time to be looking at such boring things?
Makoto: Might this boy be your boyfriend, Yue-san?
Yue: Why would you think that?!
Sasaki: I mean, he’s obviously a child!
Makoto: He isn’t? But looking at this picture, I really got that impression… / Oh? Was it unrequited love?
Yue: No, it wasn’t!
Makoto: But you look so happy in this picture, and…
Yue: People your age can always smile like that. / You should make sure this period in your life is a precious one, too.
Yue: C’mon—let’s stop talking about such stupid things and get going!
Makoto: Is—is it OK to be out in broad daylight?
Yue: I’ve cleared the area of people. / It doesn’t seem like the culprit cares whether it’s day or night.
[potion]: For When Serious
Sasaki: What the…
Yue: I’m the sort of character who gets stronger the more she drinks. <aside: I’ve mixed some of my best spells into this potion, so… > [note: some guessing here]
Sasaki: Won’t you have to go to the bathroom after drinking that much?
Yue: Yes, which means we’ll have to finish this before I have to go. / Ugeh.
Makoto: Um, err, Yue-san, / there’s something I haven’t told you yet…
Makoto: It’d be em—embarrassing if Sasaki-kun found out, so I didn’t want to mention it… um…
Yue: Hm hm…
Yue: So the culprit always thoroughly gropes its victim’s breasts… / I feel like I’ve heard that somewhere before…
Makoto: It—it wasn’t that thorough…
Yue: It’s coming….Adeat!
Yue: Come, then, underwear thief! / You cannot escape my barrier!
Thief (Paio?): Mwahahaha. / You’re quite the lively little girl, aren’t you?
Sasaki: Mon—mon—there’s really a gang of monsters!
Yue: I knew you were too powerful to be a mere underwear thief! / Might you be a spy sent to observe the security of this region? <aside: From the Imperium, or China, or America… >
Thief: Mwahaha. I fear “spy” is too strong a word to describe me. / I am simply one who has devoted her life to feeling breasts. / The underwear is just a souvenier.
Yue: Well then. / You’re just a good old-fashioned enemy of women!
Yue: Διος Τυκος (Lightning Ax)
Sasaki: What-what-what is that?!
Yue: It is magic.
Sasaki: And what are these?!
Yue: They’re a squad of Dragon Fangs [note: can’t make out the English/Latin/Greek/whatever name given, so making up my own]. They’ll protect you two.
Thief: Hmm… That was quite the impressive delayed spell, to have affected me that much. / Who are you, girl?!
Yue: I am the magical detective Ayase Yue. / I care not if you remember it.
Yue: Iaculatio Fulgoris [Lightning Javelin)
Thief: What—what the?!
Yue: This is it.
Yue: Jovis Tempestas Fulguriens!! [Lightning Storm]
Thief: Mhooo! / This is bad! I have no choice! / ..STRIP!!
Makoto: Yue-san, you’re amazing!
Yue: It’s just her clothes… / Dammit! It was just a shell!
Yue: Impossible! How could she disarm even my magical defenses with her bare hands?!
Thief: Mofufufu… I can’t blame you for being surprised. I was taught the Silent Self-Strip and the Silent Stripping techniques by none other than the legendary mercenary swordsman, The Thousand Blades himself.
Yue: Is that man making a nuisance of himself again?!
Yue: What— / You little…
Thief: Mofufu… It looks like being stripped naked isn’t enough to stop you, is it.
Yue: Ah… That’s… Stop… / Aahh…
Thief: Mofufufu… Not too bad. A light softness above your chest, making an interesting contrast with your ribs. / Truly, there are no such thing as bad boobies!
Yue: S—stop! / Oh… / I screwed up. I can’t believe I’m losing to someone like this! / This—this is bad. I’m losing my strength; at this rate, my prepared spells will… / E---Emitt…
Thief: Mofufuhyu! / I can’t let you do that! / How’s this feel?!
Yue: Ahh?! / I—I can’t… My power… it’s… it’s…
Yue: Flowing away!
Yue: Wait? <aside: It’s still here? >
