—That's all.




=Well?//How's your fever?

=97 °F.

=That was a quick recovery.
=Must have something to do with the page limit.

=Here's the paper.

=And the New Year's letters.
=Looks like you only got advertisements.

=That's because we're in mourning. The grandfather on my Dad's side passed away last year.
=And your family still went to Hawaii?

=Well,//They had a karaoke party the night of the funeral.




=What's wrong?


[headline]Murder in Yomogi Park

=A man shot to death in the bushes.

=Time of death, approximately 10pm to 12am.
=Skillfully carried out,//Possibly the work of a professional killer!?

=A professional killer?
=Hah-hah,//A girl like that?

=Maybe she's a killing machine trained from birth by some sort of secret organization...

=Idiotic,//Why would a killing machine show up at my house.

=Maybe because you know something about the secret organization...
=How the heck would I know that!?
=I haven't even been outside these past couple days.

=I went to the video store the day before yesterday, but—

[bag]Rental Videos

=...No way.

=I'm terribly sorry.
=Oh no, it was my fault.

=Thank you, thank you.

=That guy was holding videos too...

=—I knew it.
=This isn't the anime I rented!

=So this is the tape about the secret organization...?




[button left]PLAY
[button right]STOP

=I might've missed something important.//Lemme rewind it and have a re—al good look.


=Is this the sort of thing a college applicant should be watching this time of day?

Gotta patch 'em all!


=The snow's starting to melt.

=Well then, guess I'll head for the police station—
=Whoa, hold up—!

=Oh,//—Well, you know.
=You're gonna leave a sick person behind!?

=Your fever's gone, though.
=Oh, but—
=I still feel dizzy,//And nauseous.

=Besides, I really think it'd be easier to explain things if I went with you.//Right? Let's go tomorrow.
=And it's gonna get dark pretty soon.

=It's still 3 o'clock.
Time for the 3 o'clock news


=I don't think the police want to be bothered on New Year's Day.

=—But,//What about your studies?

=Hey, I know!//You can help me study!//You're probably smarter than me.

=Done deal!//Let's do it.

=This one's wrong.
=And this one.
=And that one.

=Are you sure you can't remember anything about yourself...?//I guess this stuff gets stored in a different part of the brain...


=See the bump?
=Oh, yeah.

=I must've tripped or hit my head somewhere while I was walking around,//And it made me lose my memory.
=A young girl walking around on her own at midnight? On New Year's Eve?

=It looks easy on TV shows though. All they have to do is hit their head again, and voilà! Everything's back to normal!
=I wonder what "normal" is...

=—But why would I be carrying around a knife...?

=Or a gun,//Or a stungun...

=Now I remember!


=I was baking rice cakes!





=That one's//wrong.

=Don't give up//...Hajime.


=I don't care if she's a murderer anymore...

=January 2nd, 2000—




=Good morning.

=You were studying?//This whole time?

=You kept cheering me on in your sleep, so...//Yeah.

=I'll go get the paper.


=I think the newspaper's on holiday,
=For today—


=—Uck! They're headed for my house.

=Don't know her name!




=A-Are you okay!?


=There's a door out back.//Hurry!

=Your answer?
=I know!//I'll handle the rest!

=Okay,//Then on my birthday—
=Just go!

=My birthday?



=Do you live in this house?

=You've heard about the murder in Yomogi Park, haven't you!

=Where's the gun!?
=So it was real.

=You'd better not be hiding anything!
=We arrested the culprit last night, and he says he left it on your doorstep on New Year's Eve.


=You arrested//...The culprit?
=Where's the gun!?

=Why didn't you tell us immediately!?
=Don't be so judgmental, Yamada-kun.

=The gun was buried,//In the snow—

="To Mr. Hajime Toshino..."//A letter for you, maybe?

=Thank you for your cooperation!//—Have a nice day!


[letter]To Mr. Hajime Toshino

=Manami Nonomura?
[letter]Manami Nonomura


=Well well,//What a happy day!
=Forget about all that B2K computer crap!
=It's Y2K, mister.

=By the way, big brother.//I haven't seen Manami-chan around. Where is she?

=Ohh—//That's right, I remember!
=She went to confess to the guy she likes on New Year's Eve.
=On New Year's Eve?

=Yeah,//She said she didn't wanna regret it in case the whole B2K thing happened.
=Dude, it's Y2K.

=Isn't it dangerous?//Letting a girl go off on her own at night—

=Don't worry!//She takes Aikido classes.
=Plus, I gave her a knife and a stungun just in case.

=—But,//Today's already the 2nd of January.
=2nd, 3rd—Who gives a damn!//It's all part of the holidays!
=C'mon, drink up!

=According to this letter...

=Apparently, she saw me on the bus about 2 months ago and took a liking to me, but—

=That was right around the time when I was in the hole, and really had to buckle down and start studying for my entrance exams...

=My phenomenal last-minute concentration prevented me from noticing,//That such a cute girl was on the lookout for me.

=—And,//Page 6 of the previous chapter.
=Happy New Year!

=The Environmental Crisis,
=The Population Crisis,
=The Food Crisis,

=The Educational Crisis,
=Dino Crisis...
=With all these crises at hand,

=There's only 1 more year to go until the dawn of the 21st century...

=—By the way, her birthday is on January 3rd.
