Yuri: S-sorry... w-why do you remember all that?

Yuri: By the way, big bro... you don't have to eat dinner at home all the time.
You can go eat out with friends or something...

Ataru: Nah, we don't have money for that...
But I won't tell anyone that we're poor...

Yuri: Huh? Really?
Ataru: Of course! It's too shameful to admit.


Yuri: You know
it sounds like you're bluffing...

Yuri: Maybe you don't have friends?

Yuri: I've never seen you hang out with them,
you're always alone, grinning while you're on your phone...
You don't have friends, do you?

Ataru: H-hey now...

Ataru: I do have some
genuine 'friends'.


Yuri: Really! Sorry then.
Introduce me next time, ok?

Ataru: Thanks for the meal...
Yuri: Ignoring me now?

Ataru: Besides,

Ataru: didn't we decide to always have dinner together.?
Ever since mom and dad passed away in that accident...

Yuri: Yes...
that's true.

So, today is the 25th, right?

Marble: Everyone, you should have a number on your arm.

Ataru: nr 410

Marble: The person with nr 25!
Horiuchi: Me?!

right text: The author, Okushou, is a university student and script-writer! The desperate game 'Real Account' displays his genius!

Marble: Hm, 520 followers, quite a bit huh.

Horiuchi: What is your point?!

Marble: Well, actually


Horiuchi: Guaaaagh!!


sfx: z-wup
Marble: Oh?

Right! Explain properly!

Marble: OKAY


Marble: When you die
your followers will die mysterious deaths with you!!


people: No...?!

Marble: From now on I'll have you play my game.

Marble: Only the person who 'clears' it completely
will be allowed to return to the real world.

Ataru: G-game? Clear...?
What is he talking about?!
It can't...

Marble: And
everything that happens here


text (marble): will be live broadcast
all over the country.

Yuri: Big brother...!

Marble: So, each and every move, everything you do
will be watched. Be careful!

Yeah! Answer us!

Marble: I have no obligation to tell you.

guy: I'm out of here! Waaah!
sfx: dash

sfx: bsha
guy: Guhe-

Marble: You cannot escape. On top of that, because of him
his 302 followers also died~
sfx: f-wup


text (marble): The 10.000 people here were gathered for a certain reason or goal.
I wonder who'll be able to clear the game?

text (ataru): A certain reason...or goal...
What...is going to happen here?

Marble: Wel, this concludes our opening ceremony.
Let's play an easy game! It's called...


text: True Follower Diagnosis

Marble: The rules are very simple
There's no need for all of you to do anything.


Marble: The ones playing are those who are watching this broadcast.
Now, dear audience, from now on these 10.000 people here will die one by one.

Marble: And you, their followers, will consequently die as well.
I'm sure you'd hate that.

Marble: That's why!

Marble: For only 3 minutes
you are allowed to un-follow people!


Marble: Now, go ahead and save yourself! As for the people in here

Marble: this means that your followers will break their bonds with you.

Marble: For those 'in a relationship',
do you believe your partner will stay with you?

Marble: Those who have their family members follow them, no worries!
I'm sure they're worried about you and keep following you!


Marble: Oh, before I forget. In your case,
if your follower count drops to 0,
unfortunately it's Game Over for you.

text (ataru): Huh... but then
I don't have a girlfriend, or family

text: Well, there's Yuri but... no, I don't want her to be in danger...
There's no guarantee I can clear this...
I need some to stay...


text (ataru): Otherwise
I'll die...

text: Is there someone you can truly reach out to?

Marble: By the way, just like the people in the real world you can check out your situation
on your mobile phone.

Marble: C'mon

text: Do you have someone's 'trust'?

Marble: Countdown


text (ataru): My online friends are always nice to me...
How many... will I have left...

guy: Hehe... I've got over 1500 followers so...
I'm safe...

guy: What the hell!
What's going on?!
screen text: followers

Marble: During this time only
you can freely call or message people in the real world.

guy: Oi, Kanako! Help me out...
Kanako: I'm sorry.


Kanako: I don't want to risk dying...
for you.

guy: Guaaaargh!!

guy: Why...

screen: followers : 0

Marble: After all


Marble: that is what humans are like!

Ataru: W-why...

Yuri: Big brother... why

text (Ataru): It's not yuri?
Someone else...


text (Ataru): Someone else...
saved my life??

Marble: Now then, from the initial 10.000, we are down to
4684 contestants!

Marble: In short


Marble: the amount followers you have left now


Marble: is the number of people who truly care about you more than they fear death.

Marble: Isn't that great.


Marble: About half of you over huh? Conversely, you could say that the 5316 others
were not needed by anyone at all!!

Marble: The result of your everyday behaviour
is this!!

Marble: But but, those who unfollowed are also crying...
even though they actually killed them! Fools!!

Ataru: Ch...
sfx: glare


Marble: Finally
those who got to 0 followers and died are in the way.
