Text: A mysterious man named Gilliam. He possesses unparalleled evil.
Right text: The story of the special esper team The Children's battles and growth is in Volumes 1-25 which are on sale now!!!
Margin: Previously: Black Phantom's brainwashing returned in Tim and he lost control! Aoi and Bullet risked their lives in an attack and succeeded in stopping him, but Aoi shed tears of relief when Kaoru and the others arrived. Meanwhile, a mysterious man named Gilliam was the one behind the return of Tim's brainwashing. Who is he...?
Bullet: How is Tim doing!?
Shiho: This is...
Tim: Why is everyone here?
Tim: And why was I asleep!?
Kaoru: Thank goodness!!
Aoi: You're back to normal, right!?
Shiho: The effects of the brainwashing have completely disappeared.
Minamoto: Did you sense something?
Shiho: I'm not quite sure...
Shiho: but the feeling is a bit different from before.
Shiho: It was hardly a good feeling the first time...
Shiho: but this time it's more...
Shiho: How should I put it...?
Gilliam: You're looking, aren't you?
Gilliam: Heh heh. You need to realize...
Gilliam: that when you stare into the darkness...
Gilliam: the darkness stares back at you.
Shiho: Oh, no!!
Shiho: He was waiting for me to make contact!!
Angel: Stay away from...
Angel: these children!!
SFX: Crack crack
Kaoru: Are you all right!?
Shiho: Thanks, Kaoru-chan.
Shiho: You saved me.
Shiho: Traces of the Boost from back then remain within Tim.
Shiho: Our power and Kaoru-chan's will...
Shiho: are even now protecting him.
SFX: Bah bah bah bah bah bah
Sakaki: Is everyone all right!?
SFX: Bah bah bah
Sakaki: We can take you to the medical research facility!
SFX: Bah bah
Sakaki: Get onboard!
Kaoru: We'll do it.
Kaoru: You need to rest.
Aoi: I'm fine. I can do this much.
SFX: Hee hee
Gilliam: Heh heh...
Gilliam: I did get a slight result.
Gilliam: I couldn't experience the Boost directly...
Gilliam: but I did get to see vestiges of it.
SFX: Spread spread
Gilliam: Ah ha ha!!
Gilliam: What wonderful children!
Gilliam: It looks like we're in for some fun times!!
On building: Medical Research Building
SFX: Rumble rumble
Tim: Sorry, Bullet.
Bullet: Don't worry about it.
Bullet: You don't even remember it, right?
Tim: They said this was an attack by an esper targeting the Children...
Tim: but why did they use me?
Bullet: That's still classified.
Bullet: I wasn't even told the details.
Bullet: And we're not allowed to discuss it.
Bullet: But don't worry.
Bullet: The time will come when the two of us can pool our information.
Bullet: Until then, let me keep your share of the doubts.
Sakaki: You've become a man,
Bullet: All this made me realize how much of a kid I am.
Sakaki: That's good enough.
Sakaki: No one is born a man.
Sakaki: Men are those who become men.
Tim & Bullet: Doctor Sakaki actually gave excellent human advice!?
Sakaki: I always give good advice!!
Kaoru: Minamoto, you and Aoi are staying here?
Minamoto: The health of our Level 7's takes top priority.
Minamoto: And a Teleporter like Aoi needs an especially thorough checking over.
Minamoto: The examination will take 2 or 3 days.
Minamoto: We won't be having any missions or training in that time...
Minamoto: so you can go see your parents if you wan-
Kaoru: Not a chance.
Minamoto: I thought you'd say that.
Minamoto: But the guest facility here is being remodeled...
Minamoto: so this is the only room all 3 of you can stay in together.
Minamoto: ...Do you mind?
Shiho: This room...!
Box: To be continued in Issue 24
Margin: There is still some uneasiness, but the incident is over! What is this room that lies before them in the medical facility?
