Title: File 41 The One with Real Power
Peter: We'll demand two trillion dollars or about 180 trillion yen from the governments of the world.
Peter: Pretty cheap, right?
Peter: Considering the alternative is a continuous rain of nuclear fire across the world.
Text: A true unreserved evil!!
Bottom: The battle in the nuclear power plant! Volume 4 is on sale now!!
Peter: We just have to wait.
Peter: With that much money, we just have to match the currencies we keep it in with the scope of the each country's economy and we can make any country do whatever we want.
Peter: If they don't, we can cause hyper inflation. Or we could do the opposite.
Peter: The world would have to do as we say.
Peter: There have been kings controlling the world from the shadows like that in every age.
Peter: We just need to inherit that throne.
Hansel: Money sure is convenient.
Hansel: It can even make you the king of the world.
Hansel: Isn't that right,
Hibiki: It's Hibiki.
Fujimaru: This is Fujimaru.
Fujimaru: Have you been discovered?
Hibiki: Oh, you're worried about me?
Fujimaru: Y'know...this really isn't the time for that...
Hibiki: I'm fine. I've been well trained.
Hibiki: My eyesight is 4.0. If I keep my distance, a normal person won't be able to see me and I won't lose sight of them.
Fujimaru: I-I see.
Fujimaru: What are the terrorists you're following doing?
Hibiki: They're on the run, but it doesn't look like they're going to meet up with anyone else.
Hibiki: But it's odd...
Fujimaru: What is?
Hibiki: If I was in their shoes, I'd be trying to get away as quickly as I could. They must know we found out they tried to escape by disguising themselves as power plant workers.
Hibiki: And their pursuers could be using dogs, so I'd be running with all my might instead of leisurely walking.
Fujimaru: So they have some reason to be confident? Do they have some plan to keep anyone from coming after them? But there are definitely people coming based on your cell phone location information.
Fujimaru: My computer calculations say they should catch up to you within 10 minutes.
SFX: Type type
Hibiki: I'll just keep tailing them at this distance until then.
Fujimaru: If you sense danger, get out of there.
Hibiki: I know, I know.
Hibiki: I want to come back to you safely as much as you want me to.
Fujimaru: I-I'm hanging up now.
Fujimaru: Be careful!
Fujimaru: Kanou-san, where is the unit heading after the terrorists Hibiki's tailing?
Kanou: They reported they had reached this area.
Fujimaru: So they should catch up in another 5 minutes...
Fujimaru: Peter Pan...Do you have some trick up your sleeve?
Fujimaru: No, I'm over thinking this.
Fujimaru: Maybe they haven't noticed Hibiki trailing them, so they think they've gotten away and have just let their guard down.
Fujimaru: Think. This is Peter Pan you're up against.
Fujimaru: There has to be something!!
SFX: Run run
Snow White: Pant pant...
Snow White: A-Arthur...I can't go on!
Alexei: Just a bit farther.
Alexei: According to Peter Pan's instructions, we won't run into the enemy this way.
SFX: Pant pant pant
Snow White: But...
Snow White: I can't...
Alexei: Just another kilometer and we'll have reached the river.
Alexei: If we go in the river, the dogs can't track us.
Alexei: And if we head 2 kilometers downstream, we can escape on the rubber boat we hid there!
Snow White: O-okay...
Alexei: We'll be able to see the river once we get out of the forest! Just a bit further! Okay, we're-
Dog: Woof woof woof!!
Man: There he is. It's Hino Alexei!!
Dog: Bow wow
Man: Be careful! They're probably armed!
Dog: Woof woof woof
Snow White: A-Arthur...What's going on?
Alexei: Heh heh heh...
Alexei: Peter Pan betrayed us.
Snow White: Wha-...!?
Alexei: Peter Pan must have led us in the path of his pursuers to stop them.
Snow White: N-no way...
Alexei: Damn it. He sacrificed us in order to get away.
Alexei: Ha ha ha...
Snow White: You may have been away for 8 years, but you basically raised him, right? How could he betray you the man he thinks of as his father?
Alexei: It's for that very reason that he could betray me.
Snow White: Kh...Run for it, Arthur! I'll stay here and hold them off!
Alexei: It's no use, Snow White.
Men: We have orders from "Third-i" to shoot them!
Men: Don't go easy on them!
Dogs: Woof woof
Dogs: Bow wow
Men: Prepare for machine gun fire!
Men: Prepare the grenade launcher too!
Alexei: ...Snow White.
Alexei: Remove all of the cloths stopping your bleeding.
Snow White: A-Arthur?
Alexei: Put down your weapons!
Snow White: Ar...
Alexei: Drop your weapons or this woman's life is forfeit!
Men: Let go of the hostage, Hino.
Men: You have no way to escape!!
Men: What do we do?
SFX in corner of next bubble: Whisper
Men: "Third-i" said not to stop even if it means sacrificing a hostage.
Men: Look for an opening and give us a sign.
Men: The unit around back will aim for his head. If we're lucky, we can save her.
Men: Yes, sir.
Alexei: What's wrong!? Drop your weapons and prepare a helicopter!
SFX: Tremble tremble
Snow White: N-no, Arthur. They're going to shoot.
Alexei: I know.
Alexei: I'll make sure you live on.
Snow White: Eh?
Men: Now! Fire!
Snow White: A-Arthur!
Alexei: Carry out...your mission...
Men: We did it!!
Men: The hostage is alive.
Men: Make sure she's safe!
Men: Are you okay? Those are some bad wounds...
Snow White: Ah...
Men: This way! We'll get you to the hospital right away.
Snow White: O-
Snow White: Okay...
SFX: Chatter chatter
Men: Should we really have killed a man wanted internationally who had been locked up for 8 years?
Men: Well, the responsibility lies with the ones who ordered us.
Men: Yeah, I guess you're right.
Men: Hey, over here!
Men: You're in charge of retrieval.
Alexei: Carry out your mission.
Snow White: Peter Pan...!!
Fujimaru: Shit! He got us!
Minami: What is it, Fujimaru?
Fujimaru: The enemy hacker got us, Minami-san!
Kanou: What do you mean!?
Fujimaru: The location information from Hibiki's cell phone was fake! He hacked into the cell tower and set the system to give us information that would send us in the exact opposite direction!
Fujimaru: Damn! Hibiki's in trouble!
Peter: It looks like the enemy squad and Arthur have made contact. They've stopped moving.
Peter: Now we can get away.
Hansel: Will Arthur die?
Peter: It would be quite a problem if he didn't.
Peter: Otherwise we couldn't get the key to opening "Pandora's Box" where the true power of our organization lies.
Hansel: What do we do about the guy tailing us.
Peter: He's staying at quite a distance and yet is staying perfectly on our tail. This is no normal person. Fighting him would be dangerous.
SFX: Loading gun
Hansel: But on the other hand...
Hansel: we can't ignore him any longer.
Peter: Then I'll leave him to you and go get the vehicle we have hidden up ahead.
Peter: I'm counting on you.
Fujimaru: No matter how long you wait, help isn't coming! And they know you're following them. If you don't turn back now...!
Hibiki: I can't let them get away.
Fujimaru: What are you saying, Hibiki!?
Hibiki: Didn't I tell you? I'm going to be Mizusawa Hibiki, a Japanese citizen.
Hibiki: I can't let terrorists who are going to destroy my country get away!
Peter: Hansel, how about you show him the power of...
Peter: the youngest master sergeant in the French Foreign Legion.
Hansel: Roger that!
