Tadashii Kodomo no Tsukurikata Chapter 17
(Teshima is being manipulated---)
Chapter 17: Marionetter
...We resemble each other, // so I think we have a good compatibility...
(and launches a bouncing attack!)
(His only hope, Raito, is behind a wall of stone. Tsuchida and Asuka are knocked out too, so Yuu is all alone. The mind-controlled Teshima launches a bold attack!!)
So... // let's do it?
No, no, we can't!!
I put a new function on it.
Teshima-san... // I'm sorry!
...Seems it was worth putting it on.
---A new function?
Yeah, it's for a time when you're attacked by a brain-washed girl again and I'm not around. // I set it so that the skin-computer amplifies your body's electric current and you can shoot it.
So that's the skin-computer?
Actually it covers my whole body, so you only have a few of the nearly one billion nano-machines.
Well, it are only a few nano-machines, so the power isn't all that great, but it's enough to make them faint for a while.
Tatsumi-kun, // what's the matter?
...No, // just thinking that help still might take a while.
...Yeah, // you're right.
(Panicking won't help us...)
But when the "ability-users" are on the move // I can't waste any time...
---In the worst case,
I still have a trump card, but...
if possible, I would like to avoid using it...
A- Are you okay, Teshima-san?
Aww, aren't you cruel...
To do that to someone that loves you...
Do you know how much effort it was to set up all of this...
That's just no good, Onii-san.
You have to take what's served to you.
The mind-controlling ability-user...
(Oh please) Just call me Marionetter.
...So, made your decision?
As to whom you're going to pair up with. Us or him...
Why are you doing all this?
Sure, it's true that I don't fully trust Raito...
But why would // I side with someone that
manipulates innocent girls!?
...I have trouble understanding the morals of the people of this age.
You have the desire, yet you talk about justice... // Or are you specially earnest?
Well, whatever. // Guess this means the negotiation fell through...
Well, // I'm not really against using force, you know.
! // A- Again...!?
Wh- // Why...
No use! // Sure, when I control them from afar you can release them with a little shock.
But when I'm close like this, they lose all their senses and I can control them freely...
That's the reason why I'm called the "Marionetter"!!
Let me tell you another thing, my control isn't really limited to one person.
Eh... // !
resign yourself, Onii-san...!!
Fully naked! Not good!
(In more than one way)
Tatsumi Raito...? No...
Looks like I made it in time.
Right now, I moved most of the nano-machines of the skin-computer over to you.
Through the skin-computer I'll give you instructions, so do as I say!
Lower your left leg and rely on your right leg.
So you say, but the two are holding on to me...
Now twist your body while you raise up!
Wh- What was that? (What's going on!?)
One of the skin-computer's powers. It amplifies your physical strength.
It's a power to stand against the outstanding power of the "ability-users".
However, you need the comprehension to continuously think of the next move and order it, so....
...Sorry, I have no clue what you're talking about.
(Tch.) That's okay. Just move as I tell you!
The only choice you have now is to defeat the "ability-user" directly yourself...!
(The tables are turned!? Raito's trump card gives new hope--- Time for the counter-attack!? See next time!!)
