#14. And the Mystery Terrorist is...
1: You have ten minutes to make your visit, alright?
2: Narumi-kun won't be able to answer you because of his bandages. Please just let him write his answers.
3: Oh, he can write? Alright then...
4: Narumi-kun, we came to visit you.
5: How are you feeling?
6: I'm so glad you're still with us...
TEXT: THANK YOU VERY MUCH. IT'S ALL THANKS TO YOU Hino-SENSEI
1: I'm relieved to see you in such good shape.
2: Is there anything you want, Narumi-kun? Anything you want to eat or drink?
TEXT: I WANT TO TALK WITH YOU ALONE FOR A BIT
3: Alright, alright. I get it! No one likes me, no matter where I go!
4: Sit tight, I'll be out of your hair in a jiffy!
TEXT: SORRY FOR MAKING HER ANGRY...
5: It's okay. Now, what did you want to talk about?
TEXT: I TRUST YOU, SENSEI. I'LL TELL YOU ANYTHING YOU WANT TO KNOW
1: Good! I trust you too, Narumi-kun.
TEXT: I'LL BE HONEST, SO I WANT YOU TO BE HONEST TOO
TEXT: YOU GO FIRST!
TEXT: TELL ME WHY YOU REALLY CAME TO ST. NAVARONE HIGH. PLEASE TELL ME THE TRUTH
3: /Wait a minute... this person isn't Narumi-kun!
TEXT: YOU CAME HERE FOR A SECRET REASON, DIDN'T YOU? TELL ME THE TRUTH
1: /This is getting stranger and stranger... no matter how I look at him, he just doesn't seem like Narumi-kun... he certainly doesn't look like a boy who was covered in burn wounds just yesterday. And his body looks different...
1: /Narumi-kun's ears were also burned yesterday... but the man here has both his ears perfectly in tact! What kind of face is hiding beneath those bandages?
2: /Did they switch him out to keep him quiet?
3: WHAT'S WRONG, SENSEI? TELL ME THE TRUTH
1: Honestly, I'm surprised. What a strange question... I came to your high school to educate you, obviously.
2: Seems like you want a different answer, though...
3: Hmm... what did I come here for?
4: First off, I came here to check up on how smart you all were. And also to check on what was going on in your dorm...
TEXT: SENSEI, LET'S BE SERIOUS HERE. I AM. WHY WON'T YOU BE?
1: Fine then, I'll tell you. Fufufu...
2: Let's stop this little scribbling game and get to the point.
5: I came here to find out who's trying to pretend he's Narumi!
1: Wh-what's going on in there?!
2: What's wrong, Mika?!
1: Are you alright, Mika?!
2: Waah! Holy shit!
1: Someone, stop that man!
2: He's gone!
3: He got away!
5: What happened? Why did Narumi run away?
6: That wasn't Narumi at all!
7: A completely different person was bandaged up in there!
8: Wh-what? But that can't be!
1: I just changed his bandages in the morning!
2: And of course, he was Narumi then! How could have changed into someone else?!
3: Well, you saw what happened. As soon as I accused him of being someone else, he turned tail and ran.
4: Do you think the bandaged, injured Narumi would do something like that?!
5: This is unbelievable!
6: When could Narumi have switched out with that guy?!
7: Probably after you changed his bandages and went to lunch.
8: Then where's the real Narumi?!
9: Only the impostor knows...
10: This is terrible! I need to tell the director!
1: [Eventually, the school doctor found out and ordered a school-wide search for Narumi. All students took part...
1: Hmm... it doesn't seem like he's hiding on school grounds.
2: Did the impostor have any characteristics that stood out, Hino-sensei?
3: No... he only wrote messages to me, and never spoke. He even hid his face, hands and legs with bandages...
4: Perhaps we should take this to the police.
5: No... I refuse to let the police inside school grounds. And if this is made public, it will be a stain on our school's reputation!
6: Just try searching for him again! Look harder this time!
1: Heh... how should we know where Narumi is? He disappeared on his own, didn't he?
2: We've got better things to do!
3: When I get hungry, I'm going home, you hear me?!
4: Now, if it was some hot babe that was missing, then we'd be happy to search all night!
6: Can you believe them? That's how they're acting when one of their friends has gone missing!
7: Mika, don't you think that Narumi's been carried outside of the school by now?
9: But apparently no one's gone through the gate since noon. I think it would be hard to move his body out without anyone noticing...
10: Hmmm... guess we'll just have to look again.
3: What are you doing?! Pervert!
4: Sheesh... maybe I'm searching a little too hard here.
1: Might as well look in the boys' room while I'm at it, though...
3: A bandage...
1: N... Narumi-kun?!
2: What are you doing here?!
3: Come on out!
4: Is yourbody alright?!
5: Just get over here! Everyone's been worried sick about you!
1: Uwaaaahh! An explosion!
2: The police station exploded!
1: [The Crocodile Precinct
2: Wh-what?! An explosion?!
3: Yes, sir. A police station, a court, a bank, a restaurant, and then a soap club, one after another. It seems to be a string of random bombings.
4: There have been a lot of casualties so far. And due to all the damage, chaos is breaking out around the areas!
5: Have you found any suspicious people who might be the terrorists who caused this?!
6: Nothing yet, sir. It looks like they were time bombs... and we still have yet to receive any witnesses with clues.
7: We'll move out at once!
8: Yes! I'll come join you ASAP!
1: /Another bombing...
2: /Looks like things are escalating far beyond what happened at our precinct...
3: I can't sit around here anymore!
4: /I sent Mika and Rin to St. Navarone to find the terrorist, but maybe we had the wrong idea from the very beginning...
2: /No... this isn't Narumi...
1: Ahh... Ahh...
So you really can't find him, huh?
2: We looked in every nook and cranny around the school...
3: He must have been taken off school grounds, then...
4: Maybe he's out taking a walk on the town or something.
5: Then what about the man who switched out with Narumi?
6: Hmm... it must have just been some sort of prank...
1: I disagree.
2: /There's no way. That man did all that precisely to find out my secret...
3: Either way, let's search again tomorrow.
4: He may show up acting like nothing happened.
5: /I don't believe this... he really thinks Narumi could move around with such wounds?!
6: /The principal's only thinking about himself. He's afraid of letting this go public...
1: Hm? Where did Rin go?!
2: /I last saw her when were searching for Narumi, but she never came back...
3: /I wonder where she went?
4: /I guess she's still looking around.
5: Excuse me, have you seen Rin... er, Kakura?
6: Oh, the janitor? No, I haven't.
7: I haven't seen her!
8: Me neither.
10: Maybe she went back to her room, then. That must be it...
SIGN: Teachers' Dorm
1: I knew it. You did come back here...
2: I was worried! I didn't know where you had gone!
3: Rin... what's wrong? Are you alright?
1: Yeah, it's me!
2: Boss, we've received reports of more explosions. In Shinjuku and Shibuya... more time bombs went off!
3: There's still no telling how much damage was done. But I expect it to be big!
1: Alright! I'm still on my way to the scene. Call again when you find out more!
2: Yes sir!
3: Dammit... that's the seventh one today...
4: What's the damage report?!
5: We don't know the details, but many have been injured.
6: The flames have died down a bit, but it's still too dangerous to go inside.
7: There might be more bombs in...
3: Whoever's doing this is just trying to cause as much damage as they can!
3: A-are you all alright?!
1: He wasn't after the building!
2: He planted bombs specifically to hit the fire trucks and police cars as well!
3: Goddammit... I know this must be connected to the student from St. Navarone High...
4: What are Mika and Rin doing up there?!
1: Wh-what are you doing, Rin?!
2: Rin! Owww! It's me... Mika!
4: Aahh! Rin! Have you gone crazy?!
1: Aaaahh! R-Rin! Stop...
3: /Sh-she's gone crazy! Someone... something must have brainwashed her!
4: /With hypnosis or something...
4: Aahh! Rin... wake up! It's me... Mika!
5: Rin... Rin! Ahh, my bones are going to snap...
2: /Fu... it was so simple. Fufufufu...
3: /Now she's going to get her back broken by her pratnre and die...
4: /Hm? Someone's coming!
1: Wake up, Rin!
3: Oh no! This isn't going to work!
3: She's gone completely berserk!
2: The students are still studying?
3: Everyone, I need your help! Kakura-san's gone crazy!
4: We all need to work together and stop her!
5: Everyone, hur...
2: Their eyes... they're the same as Rin's!
3: Aaahh! Stooop!
1: Aahh! Rin!
1: Rin! Wake up, Rin!
2: Kukuku... we're going to play a fun game now...
5: Rin! No! Stop! Wake up!
4: Rin! I knew it!
6: Nevermind! You still aren't back to normal yet!
7: You're just attacking the first person you see!
8: Kill herrrr!
2: Graaah! Kiiiill!!
3: /Phew! In the end, she really did save me!
1: /There's a light on in the janitor's room.
2: /Ah... there's a stairway leading down below...
3: /They go straight down...
1: /This is a pretty deep tunnel... and it looks like there are multiple pathways that entwine with this one...
2: /It doesn't look that old, either... and there's no moss here, which means people must use it regularly.
3: /Maybe this is where all of St. Navarone's secrets are hidden...
4: /Hm? A door...
5: /A wire lock...
1: Ah! N... Narumi?!
2: Narumi-kun! So this is where you were!
3: Ahh! He's so cold!
4: Don't tell me he's already...
5: No. His heart's still beating...
6: But he's nearly frozen solid!
1: The color's returning to his lips...
1: The color's returned to his face, and his body is warm again...
4: It's too dangerous to stay here. I need to move you somewhere..
2: He was so heavy! Sheesh!
3: If I make him drink something warm, it may energize him and wake him up.
4: Uuuu... uuu...
SFX: WHAM CRACK
1: Guoohhh! Dryaaahh!
2: What's all that noise?!
3: Now what?!
1: Th-they're destroying the school!
2: St-stop! Stop this at once!
3: Hey! Stop, I said!
4: Your principal is telling you to stop!
6: Principal! Stay strong!
7: St-stop! Stop destroying my school!
1: /This is bad... I can't let them call the police...
2: /Stop! Stop, I said! Ahh, we have no choice... we have to call the police!
3: Uwaaahh! Look, it's Narumi!
4: Wh-where have you been?!
5: Where have you been, I said!
1: The noise out there is getting louder... did something else happen?
2: I'll go check...
1: Kukuku... good, good...
3: Narumi... er, Fake Narumi!
1: I finally found you! You're the one behind all the strange happenings here, and the one who planted that bomb...
3: What are you talking about?!
4: Fufufu... now it's your turn...
6: Ahhh! H-he's... behind you...
1: Ah! Narumi-kun!
2: You shouldn't be up like this... Narumi-kun!
3: /Shit... when did she find him?
4: Fufufu... fine... I'll just take you both...
1: Uwaaah! A time b... b...
3: Sensei! Get away from me, please! Hurry!
4: Everyone else, too! Run as far as you can away from me!
7: Narumi-kun... are you trying to sacrifice yourself to blow him up?!
4: Mika? Are you alright?
5: Ah! Rin!
6: Is it really you this time?! Are you OK?!
7: Of course I am! You think I'd let a little rumble like that stop me?!
8: Not that... I'm talking about your mind!
9: My mind? What's wrong with it?
10: So you're back to normal then, I suppose. Good. Please take Narumi-kun to the doctor's office for me!
12: Now to find out who you really are!
3: The student supervisor?! You're the one behind all of this?!
4: You hid behind your role as a teacher in order to brainwash the students and make them work as terrorists for you?!
7: Looks like you're awake now, Mr. Bomber.
1: Uuuu... and now...
2: it's all... over...
3: Unfortunately for you, I'm not finished yet.
4: Not until you tell me what you were using the students for!
5: Uuuu... it's simple, really. I'm a spy that was sent in by North Korea...
6: My mission was to bomb as many places as possible in order to create chaos so that the government could be overthrown...
7: All of the bombs were created late at night within the school... I brainwashed the students with my hypnosis... and led them to plant the bombs in different places around the city.
8: And that's not all. You also used the female students for yourself at night!
9: Sh-she wasn't a student... she was a woman from the city that I dressed up as a student... hypnotised, of course...
10: So Narumi resisted you, then?
1: No... he was the most talented worker I had. My hypnosis worked wonders on him, and he was very obedient...
2: But... then, one day, my hypnosis stopped working, and he started antagonizing the other students.
4: Because... his heart softened... he fell in love with someone...
6: That's right... I may be able to control people's thoughts and actions with my hypnosis... but I can't supersede instincts like love... I couldn't change him...
7: No matter what I did...
8: The students... have done nothing wrong... it was all... me... uuu...
1: You look much better today.
2: Ahh, sensei... thank you.
3: I'm fine now. I can't wait to step outside again!
4: And it's all thanks to you.
5: I'm glad to hear that.
6: You warmed up my body in the basement with your own, didn't you?
7: I can still remember it vaguely in the back of my mind.
8: That's right...
9: And now... I want you to warm me up...
1: No matter what the reasons were, you were still involved in the bombing... if you're a real man, then you need to take responsibility for your actions.
4: I don't know who you really are... but to me, sensei... you're...
