SFX: GA KAH
Someone: ---That is the situation.
Currently the cause of the explosion
and the scope of the damage is unknown.
Both possibilities of it being an accident or an act of terrorism have not been ruled out.
Someone: All those currently nearby the Terminal, please vacate the area immediately
and take shelter in the government-designated evacuation centers.
SFX: WAaAA KYAaAa
Thank goodness you're okay!
I am sorry.
I... chased after him as fast as I could,
and caught up to him, too.
Handwritten: SUUU HAA SUUU HAAA
Kagura: I figured it was just some pervert, yes?
He'd just hugged me out of nowhere so I kicked him into outer space.
Shin: Um... Ya know, uh...
he might've been covering you, Kagura-chan.
Kagura: Huh? Why would an underwear thief do that? Covering? He had something covering him, that is for sure. ["him" in italics]
Shin: Hey, a minute ago, I saw something that kinda looked like Gin-san's ghost.
You don't think...
Kagura: Never mind that. What is all this ruckus going on here?
in the world happened to that?
Okita: That's because you two had ta drag your feet like you did.
Wh-What do you mean by that?
You're not saying all this commotion has to do with Gin-san, are you?
Okita: Well, yeah, that, too.
I'm talking about that, though.
If only you guys had worked with us, it would've been over and done with in no time.
But what ended up happening was our pray got swiped from us.
Guy: We've just received a report!!
It seems that Prime Minister Donald Zurump's villa
has been attacked by the antigovernment group, the Shireidan.
The Shireidan has already been subjugated by the guards, but...
Guy: Mr. Zurump was injured during hostilities with the Shireidan
and has perished.
I repeat. Prime Minister Mr. Donald Zurump
has been assassinated by an antigovernment organization.
The government has judge this assassination of Mr. Zurump and the explosion at the Terminal to have been simultaneous terror attacks enacted by the same organization.
Y-You're kidding, right?
That person wouldn't... get done in that easi-
Okita: The ones that did it weren't some antigovernment organization.
Okita: I got this security camera image through some illegal channels.
It was all recorded, clear as day.
It's almost like
trying to show off the crime he'd done.
Taka: Hey, you're late.
Done giving your farewell greetings to your comrades?
This might be the last time you'll get to see a festival in Edo as well.
what the hell...
did you do?
What... is this supposed to be...?
Taka: The religion's next target is Earth's Altana.
In order to revive Utsuro's body which they have in their possession and to create immortality,
they need either the heart you have or a massive amount of the Earth's Altana.
I expect they're quite surprised at what's happened about now.
Taka: Especially given that the Terminal they were targeting
got eaten up by some random terrorist.
On top of that, the country that protects that Terminal
just lots its center, and has been sent into a state of chaos.
Add together their impatience with this good opportunity I created for them,
then even those sham gods gazing down at the earth from the heavens
will have to descend.
So for that,
you used Edo
are trying to save a being that could destroy the world.
not understand waht that means?
SFX: DO DOU
Taka: It seems like
Taka: aren't fit
to carry that.
SFX: PIKI PISHI
Taka: I'll put this to good use.
Zura: I can't have you hogging all the glory.
Taka:Blowing up the terminal
and cutting down a country's Prime Minister.
Do you really think that just one terrorist could do something like that,
The only ones that could possibly do that
is either the Prime Minister
or this Joui Patriot, Katsur Kotarou.
Insert: The prince of madness still ain't dead!!
