Title: File 63 A Dangerous Gamble
Kanou: Restrain that man!
Sakaki: Yes, sir.

Minami: That woman is the terrorist who was in the party hall.
Minami: I'm sure of it.
Nik: Technically, she's a mercenary hired by the terrorist group.
Nik: She wasn't a woman who would be easily killed even if she was injured.
Nik: She was a skilled veteran warrior.
Nik: His eyes and hands have been taken.
Nik: To "open" Pandora's Box, you need a password and the current president's eye, fingerprint, and voice.
Kanou: And that's what's been taken.
Kanou: Minami, inform the American government of the president's death right away.
Kanou: They may be able to invalidate Pandora's Box.
Nik: No, if they could do that, it would be useless.
Nik: The only person other than the president who can stop it is Dupe.
Nik: And he's already dead.
Kanou: And did...
Kanou: one of your people do that, too!?
Nik: but I'd like to know about that, too.
Minami: ...What do we do?
Kanou: Forget contacting them.
Kanou: Let's cover up the president's death for a bit.
Minami: Are you serious?
Kanou: I am.
Kanou: If we haven't secured Pandora's Box first, America might very well attack us over the president's assassination.
Minami: What do you mean?
Kanou: I'm saying the American military stationed in Japan could very well send some strategic bombers to Karuizawa.
Minami: A-a nuclear strike!?
Kanou: That's the only way to ensure the destruction of Pandora's Box as long as we don't know who has it.
Kanou: They'll fight fire with fire. If the entire world is under nuclear threat, it would be better to end it with only a few hundred thousand dead.
Kanou: America has started wars for smaller reasons and this country has been nuked twice already.
Nik: How wise of you.
Text: Heh heh.
Kanou: ...Dammit. Disguise President Adams's body and take it out of here.
Kanou: For now, we'll hide him in with the injured in a Third-i emergency medical vehicle.
Sakaki: Yes, sir.
Kanou: Make sure no one else finds out about this.
Kanou: Don't even let anyone else in Third-i know about it other than people I deem need to know!
Sakaki: Yes, sir.
Kanou: We WILL make sure a third atomic bomb isn't dropped on this country!!
All: ...Yes, sir!
Fujimaru: ...Seriously, Kanou-san?
Kanou: Yes, we need to find Pandora's Box as quickly as possible.
Fujimaru: U-understood. I'll do everything I can!
Otoya: Do you have any ideas?
Fujimaru: I do actually.
Kujou: Will there be enough antiviral?
SFX: Step up
Man: Yes, Prime Minister Kujou.
Man: The JSDF took a large amount from Third-i storage and flew it over and dropped it down by parachute.
Kujou: I see.
Kujou: Including me, the members of the cabinet during the virus terrorist incident 2 years ago already received the vaccine.
Kujou: If that's why Minami-kun and Kanou-kun of Third-i are fine, then it should stop my symptoms too.
Man: We believe that to be the case, yes.
Kujou: Then I want to return to my duties. The top priority is rescuing the president.
Kujou: To do that we...
Shioda: Prime Minister Kujou!
Kujou: Who are you?
Shioda: I am Shioda of Third-i.
SFX: Pull out
Shioda: He is Second Lieutenant Jones from the US Marine Corps's Brave Team.
Hansel: I am Second Lieutenant Alex Jones of the Marine Corps.
Shioda: It is an honor to meet you.
SFX: Hold out
Kujou: ...Sorry, but it is possible I was infected by the virus.
Kujou: As I'm sure you know.
Shioda: Oh, yes. Excuse me.
Hansel: Gretel, you idiot.
Shioda: Not good. I let the sense of security due to being vaccinated get the better of me...
Shioda: We have something to discuss with you.
Shioda: Would be okay if we moved elsewhere? It's a rather sensitive topic.
Kujou: Everyone in this room is an important member of the government.
Kujou: We can talk here. I don't mind.
Shioda: Well, then...
Shioda: We would like for you to hand the object you received from the president in the party hall over to Second Lieutenant Jones.
Kujou: ...What are you talking about?
Hansel: Prime Minister.
Hansel: Third-i may not have been informed yet, but we have already rescued President Adams.
Hansel: I am here on orders from the president.
Kujou: Then have him come here himself.
Kujou: Is that all you wanted to talk about?
Shioda: P-prime minister.
Shioda: The president is injured, so...
Kujou: Then I will head there with my SPs.
Kujou: Even if the president did leave something with me, it would be a secret between the two of us and I wouldn't be able to hand it over to Third-i or the American military.
Shioda: Then gather your SPs and...
Person: Kyaaaaah! What!!?
Shioda: Hey, what're you-!?
Hansel: We don't have time, Gretel.
Shioda: T-true enough.
Shioda: Prime Minister, hand over Pandora's Box.
Kujou: ...I can't do that.
SFX: Pat pat pat
Shioda: It isn't here?
Hansel: It should be.
Shioda: What do we do? Third-i will be here soon after hearing that gunfire.
Hansel: Let's take him to the hideout.
Shioda: If you don't, I'll kill you and carry your body there.
Kanou: Is everyone okay?
SFX: Stand up
SFX: Slow movement...
Makimura: This is Makimura, Kanou-san.
Makimura: It just doesn't feel like I'm alive.
Makimura: Even with carbon armor covering even our heads, it just doesn't feel right to turn your back on armed terrorists.
Kanou: It was an emergency. We had no choice.
Kanou: Listen up, everyone. The operation to exterminate the terrorists is beginning now.
Kanou: Prime Minister Kujou chose to be the bait for this himself.
Kanou: We can't fail.
Kanou: Do you understand?
Makimura: Who's tailing the terrorists?
Makimura: Is it Third-i or the JSDF?
Kanou: But don't worry.
Kanou: No one is more suitable for this than "her".
Kanou: Not even among us.
