For JAC only
J: On one side was the Shooter of the Magic Bullet trying to send a rain of nukes on the world...
J: and on the other was a certain nation that gave no heed to the ban on creating cloned humans.
J: And there was one man secretly controlling both terrorist organizations so they would act according to the plot he wished for.
J: He was the Storyteller.
Text: A year before the Neo Tower incident...
J: If that man is not stopped, Bloody Monday will not end.
J: Everything is progressing according to the wishes of the Storyteller.
Text: All 11 volumes of Season 1 and all 8 volumes of Season 2 are on sale now!
J: The Storyteller is this country's Prime Minister,
J: Kujou Masamune.
J: want the power needed to crush him.
J: Let me say it once more.

Title: File 9 A Fate Bound by Chains
J: Help me, Falcon.
J: That man does not care how many failures it takes before he achieves his goal.
J: He will never give up.
J: If the Storyteller is not eliminated, Bloody Monday will not end.
Box: Let's turn back in time a bit.
Box: I first realized this truth a year ago.
Someone: Ok. Everything looks in order.
Someone: What are you going to do now?
J: It would be too boring to just head back to Japan so soon.
J: I guess I'll go sightseeing with my companions.
Someone: It must be tough doing even what is essentially mercenary work.
Box: Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam
J: I need to work to survive.
J: are those two together!?
Michael: You were right.
Michael: That was definitely one of this country's high ranking officials he was with.
Michael: It seems Kujou Masamune...
Michael: has some kind of...
Michael: connection with this country.
J: Bloody Monday...
SFX: Creeping up...
J: and the Storyteller!!
SFX: Bang bang bang
SFX: Stand up
J: Read their lips.
Cain: Where is Pandora's Box?
Cain: One of the clones has it. She contacted me to say she is with Falcon.
Cain: Okay, you all gather up these bodies and leave.
Cain: I will handle the rest.
J: So he's finally making his move...
Man: This is our chance!
Man: If we...
Man: deal with him here, Pandora's Box will be in our country's hands!
J: Should I...
J: really eliminate him here?
SFX: Heartbeat heartbeat heartbeat
SFX: Bang bang
J: That would...
J: be meaningless.
J: We are now...
J: withdrawing from our role in the plan to acquire Pandora's Box...
J: for that country.
J: This is...
J: a turning point.
Fujimaru: You can't expect me to believe that.
Fujimaru: Old man Kujou can't be the one behind all the terrorist attacks!!
J: I'd say...
J: it's quite a believable story.
J: Is it...
J: because I'm a "murderer"?
J: Don't get so obsessed over that.
J: After all, you could just explain it away...
J: by saying that was a war,
Fujimaru: Enough with the sophistry!
Fujimaru: What you did was nothing more than murder!!
J: In the end, we BECAME nothing more than murderers.
J: But that's because...
J: we lost.
J: I have no intention to deny that I'm a murderer.
J: It's the truth.
J: Can you...
J: say the same thing to Mizusawa Hibiki?
J: Can you call her a mere murderer?
Fujimaru: didn't become like that because she wanted to!!
Fujimaru: What do you know!? She did that in order to survive!!
J: It's the same.
J: It was the same for me...
J: and also for K who had her ambitions crushed by you and was killed by you.
J: For Anzai Mako.
J: If you are going to complain and say that the environments people were born into permit them to act in certain ways...
J: then you are the one...
J: who is saying nothing but sophistry.
J: People cannot choose where they are born and it is not equal.
J: That is a truth that cannot be changed as long as people are people.
J: There is no point in having regrets over that.
J: And running from it will change nothing.
J: Just killing him...
J: would be meaningless.
J(thought): I will bring it all to light and eliminate all of it.
J: And yet there is a man who is using that false idea of equality...
J: to bring the world into his own grasp.
J(thought): This time, I will get rid of it all!!
J: And that is...
J: Kujou Masamune.
Fujimaru: If what you are saying is true...
Fujimaru: then I will help you.
Fujimaru: you have no proof.
Fujimaru: have no proof that I can...
Fujimaru: trust you.
J: I have not given you any proof or basis on which to trust me.
J: I'm not the type to pay in advance...
J: but I'll give you...
J: a sign of my sincerity.
J: Take it.
Fujimaru: Is that...really you?
Hibiki: can't you tell,
J: on the reunion.
