Fujimaru: Can you hear me!?
Fujimaru: They're after the nuclear missile firing switch that the American president is said to carry when he visits a conflicted area.

Title: File 56 The Fear That is Thrust before Them
Fujimaru: They're after Pandora's Box!!
Fujimaru: If they get it, they will have control of the world until America can prevent the missiles from firing!
Fujimaru: That's what they're after!!
Minami: D-damn it...!
Makimura: Wh-what are you doing, Minami-san!?
Minami: I'm setting this dress on fire!!
Minami: I'm a living biological weapon. I can slow down the spread of the infection if I burn myself to death!!
Makimura: It's been more than 5 minutes since you showed your symptoms!
Makimura: Your death would accomplish nothing!!
Minami: ...You're right. There are more important things I need to be thinking about.
Minami: We need to take out those 5 mercenaries...No, we need a way to protect Pandora's Box!!
Minami: I can't believe I'm going to retire like this...
Minami: The younger members protecting the outside will be laughing at me over this!
Makimura: B-but how are they fine with that deadly virus all over the place?
Minami: You idiot. They've clearly taken the vaccine.
Minami: A vaccine that prevents Bloody-X from getting to the point of showing symptoms with a success rate of 100% was developed.
Minami: I took it last time, but it looks like its effects have long since worn off.
Makimura: I see...
Makimura: So they're planning on using that vaccine as bait to get Pandora's Box from the president!
Minami: No, the vaccine takes at least a few weeks to take effect.
Minami: They most likely have the antiviral!
Makimura: The antiviral?
Minami: Yes. It can save someone who hasn't shown symptoms yet with a pretty high success rate.
Minami: They must have decided a gun wasn't enough of a threat for the president and went with the fear of a merciless virus.
Minami: I'm still fine...somehow...
Minami: Wait. I see... Could it be that...?
Fujimaru: Please! If you don't stop them, the world will be theirs!!
SFX: Wind blowing
Kanou: M-my, god...
Kanou: I have to at least take out Nik. He's the most dangerous one!
Nik: I still see life in your eyes. You never disappoint, Ikuma.
Nik: If a man like you were to live as a mercenary, you could amass quite a fortune.
Nik: But since you insist on being a dog of the state, all you get is a dog's death.
Fujimaru: Shut up!!
Nik: It's no use.
Nik: You should know that.
Fujimaru: I WILL kill you here!!
SFX: Bang bang bang
Nik: You think you can kill me when you can barely stand?
SFX: Run run
Nik: Farewell, Ikuma.
Nik: You had true skill.
SFX: Wind blowing
Nik: Take pride in that as I send you to hell.
SFX: Jump back
Nik: Tch. So Gide's team is already gone.
Nik: Perhaps I should have spent a bit more on my sacrificial troops.
SFX: Various gunfire
Guy: He went in the party hall with the hostages!!
Sakaki: Kanou!!! Are you all right!?
Kanou: S-Sakaki's team!?
Kanou: Stay back! I've been infected by Bloody-X!
Sakaki: We know. And don't worry about us.
Sakaki: The climate here in Karuizawa tonight has lowered the virus's activity so you won't infect someone outdoors unless you come into direct contact with them.
Sakaki: That's what Kirishima told us.
Kanou: I-I see...
Sakaki: Kanou...I'm sorry.
Kanou: It can't be helped.
Kanou: It comes with the job.
Kanou: The man who just ran off was the leader of the mercenaries hired by the terrorists.
Kanou: He's a monstrous warrior named Nikolai Glazunov.
SFX: Cough cough
Sakaki: Don't speak. You need to rest.
Kanou: No, let me do my job to the very end.
Kanou: That will be the proof that I lived.
Kanou: Minami is inside the party hall.
Kanou: She must be showing symptoms too and the hall must be contaminated with the virus.
Sakaki: Yes, we heard. The protective suits will be here soon.
Sakaki: We won't approach carelessly.
Kanou: Now that we know they're after Pandora's Box, we have to stop them no matter what.
Sakaki: What does the target look like and where is it!?
Sakaki: Did the president go out to the party with it on him?
Kanou: I don't know...
Kanou: And the terrorists most likely chose this method because no one knows.
SFX: Step step step
Nik: Mr. President.
Nik: I hope my men have not treated you rudely.
Adams: I'm tired of hearing about this virus.
Adams: What do you want?
Nik: I was thinking...
Nik: I would take Pandora's Box.
Adams: And what is that?
Nik: You can't lie to us. And the virus isn't going to wait.
Nik: If you take it in the next 10 minutes...
Nik: this antiviral has an almost 100% chance of saving you.
Nik: But after 30 minutes, the odds drop to 80%. In 60 minutes, it's 50%. And in 100 minutes, 15%.
Nik: After 2 hours, it's pretty much guaranteed that you will show symptoms.
SFX: Pull out...
Nik: You will get a fever of over 40 degrees and blood will come out of every hole in your body.
Nik: Every mucous membrane in your body will rupture. Your blood vessels will rupture. You'll suffer in agony and die as you turn into a mass of blood.
Nik: President Adams.
Nik: Where is Pandora's Box?
Hansel: Will the president speak?
Peter: I doubt he will at first.
Peter: If he didn't have enough guts to resist at first, he wouldn't have fought in that fierce presidential election.
Peter: Because I anticipated that, I'm analyzing the images from the hotel's security cameras.
Peter: I WILL find it.
Peter: The president will be useful once again when I do.
SFX: Type type type
Fujimaru: Damn it! I WILL find Pandora's Box!!
Fujimaru: Peter Pan must be trying to find it using the security cameras, too. I have to stop him and find it first!
Shioda: The Pentagon has contacted Third-i!
Fujimaru: What is it, Shioda-san!? I'm busy, so just tell me!
Shioda: The orders from Pandora's Box...
Shioda: can't be easily controlled from within the Pentagon.
Inaba: So if an order to fire a nuclear missile is sent, they can't stop it?
Shioda: The safety feature for that was "Dupe", but he was taken out by someone.
Fujimaru: Can't they stop the missiles from launching by physically removing the control unit from them?
Shioda: It will take 10 hours to make only 10% of them unable to fire. And for all of them...
Shioda: it will take more than 4 whole days.
Inaba: The first demand they will probably give is to stop all work towards making the missiles unable to fire.
Inaba: And most likely the enemy hacker will easily be able to tell if work continues.
Shioda: And their next demand will be something unimaginable.
Shioda: Every country in the world will have to obey no matter what it means they must sacrifice.
Shioda: It will be an "Imperial Command".
Fujimaru: Those bastards! I won't let them do this!!
