Title: File 38 A Momentary Chance Meeting
Bottom left: Ryuumon Ryou x Megumi Kouji
Kanou: And that's the end of Hino.
Minami: Look at that!!
Minami: Two people...
Minami: just jumped down from the helicopter.
Kanou: Tch. Those idiots! They really are desperate!
Kanou: There's no way they can survive a fall from that height.
SFX: Crack crash
Birds: Caw caw
Birds: Caw caw
Minami: They cushioned their fall with the trees!
Minami: I can't believe it.
Sakaki: No, Hino Alexei can survive that. He's a former cosmonaut and was in the special forces before that.
Sakaki: He's received the highest level of training Russia offers!
Sakaki: I don't know about the other person, but he isn't someone who would die from that!
Sakaki: Helicopter Unit Gamma Team, They landed about 300 m to the west!
Sakaki: Seal off the entire area and begin a thorough search of the area with the JSDF!
Sakaki: If you find Hino or any other member of "The Shooter of the Magic Bullet", capt-
Kanou: Shoot them!!
Kanou: There's no need to capture them and put them on trial!
Kanou: All those legal processes take too damn long. They'll just do something else!
Kanou: "Third-i" will take responsibility for it.
Kanou: When you find them, kill them!!
Kanou: We'll leave this to you, Sakaki!
Kanou: We'll search inside the building.
SFX: Dramatic action
Kanou: There could be some of them still hiding inside...
Kanou: so we need to be careful! Let's go, Minami!!
Fujimaru: Kanou-san, Minami-san!
Kanou: You're okay!
Fujimaru: Yes, somehow or other!
Fujimaru: More importantly, what happened to Hino!?
Kanou: We didn't manage to take him out.
Kanou: He jumped from the chopper and fled into the forest. But we'll get him.
Fujimaru: I see.
Fujimaru: She's-...Hibiki's injured!
Fujimaru: Please have her wound treated right away!
Kanou: That little agent?
Fujimaru: She isn't an agent anymore.
Fujimaru: She's "Mizusawa Hibiki".
Fujimaru: That's what she's decided.
Minami: H-hey, hey.
Minami: What's going on!?
Fujimaru: A-anyway! Please take her to the hospital!
Fujimaru: She was shot in the shoulder while covering me.
Minami: Ah! Makimura!
Minami: You take care of all the formalities needed to both put this girl under our care and transfer her to the hospital.
Fujimaru: Go with him.
Fujimaru: You were ordered to watch over my actions, right?
Fujimaru: By leaving me and going to the hospital, you can prove that you aren't an agent anymore.
Fujimaru: Got it?
Hibiki: Okay, take me with you.
Hibiki: Oh, one of my lower right molars is a fake tooth with a Morse code transmitter in it.
Hibiki: It also functions as a GPS locator, so they'll know where I am. We should probably check on that in the emergency medical transport before going to the hospital.
Makimura: O-okay...We'll do that.
Hibiki: See you...
Hibiki: Don't cheat on me, okay!?
Fujimaru: Just go!
Fujimaru: She still has no real knowledge of how normal people act.
Fujimaru: But I'm sure that'll change.
Fujimaru: That's why I want to petition Prime Minister Kujou to give her Japanese citizenship and enter her in the family register.
Minami: You understand,
Minami: right, Fujimaru?
Minami: That's much easier said than done.
Minami: She isn't just any girl. She's an agent of another country.
Minami: Are you...
Minami: committed to this?
Fujimaru: I am!
Minami: ...I see.
Minami: Well, good...
Fujimaru: Thank you,
Kirishima: This is Kirishima.
Kirishima: You really saved us, Fujimaru-kun.
Kirishima: Thanks to you...
Kirishima: we kicked their asses.
Fujimaru: Ah ha ha ha.
Fujimaru: You should tell Hibiki that.
Fujimaru: I'm sure she'd be glad.
Kirishima: Huh? ...Oh.
Kirishima: By the way, did you here what happened at the hospital regarding the power outage?
SFX: Put bag on
Fujimaru: Yeah, I did.
Fujimaru: They told me Haruka's surgery is progressing fine.
Kirishima: So you've heard.
Kirishima: "He" really is just as amazing as you.
Fujimaru: I know!
Sign: Satou General
Text: He used the hospital-wide intercom to ask for help in securing more fuel for the generator.
Text: They called out to every car stopped at the light to get gas from them.
Text: The hospital had plenty of things that could be used as pumps.
Text: And then they used a bucket relay system to get it all to the fuel tank of the emergency generator.
Fujimaru: because he promised.
Fujimaru: He promised...
Fujimaru: that he would take care of Haruka.
Kirishima: I'm praying...
Kirishima: the surgery will be a success.
Fujimaru: Thank you!
Team: This is the Infiltration Team! We've opened the door to the control room!!
Kanou: Okay, go in!
Kanou: There should be a few hostages...
Kanou: but like was said before, don't hesitate!! Eliminate the enemy!!
Team: ...Roger that.
Fujimaru: Let's go, Kanou-san!
Kanou: Infiltration Team?
Kanou: What is it!?
Team: found the terrorists.
Team: There were 4...I think.
Team: They're...already dead.
Team: It looks like they used a grenade or a bomb...
Team: to kill themselves.
Survivors: Cough cough
SFX: Quick movement
Team: W-we've found some survivors!
Team: It's the workers who were taken hostage!
Team: Are you okay?
Small text in top of bubble: Cough
Survivors: They just...blew themselves up all of a sudden...
Survivors: Cough cough
Team: Ah...It looks like you've inhaled the smoke.
Team: Someone! Get these people to the medical team!
Team: You're safe now.
Team: Are you workers from another country? You've had it really rough.
Survivors: Yes...Thank you very much...
Survivors: for saving us.
Kanou: Hey, Fujimaru!
Kanou: Stick with us!!
