#15. Following the Fanged Man
1: Uaaahh! Straight over left field!
2: It's a comeback home run!
3: Wow! A home run! Look at that, Mika!
4: It's coming your way, Mika!
5: Leave it to me!
2: She caught it!
3: You caught it, right, Rin?!
4: Nice catch! You did it!
6: It's an orange...
7: Dammit! How could I get those two confused?
1: Wow, another one?!
2: This looks like a big one too!
3: This time it's going into right field, Mika!
1: What a great game! It was worth all the work it took to come out here!
2: Wow! It's going way up there!
1: Nice catch! Excellent!!
2: Wow, I can't believe that lady caught it!
3: Not bad catching for such a young girl!
4: /Looks like they're a couple... I can't believe he made HER catch it!
1: What's wrong, Mika? You're turning pale...
2: /Th-that man's face...
3: /It looks like his...
4: /It looks like his face!!
5: /He was wearing a hat that night...
6: /They're almost identical!
7: /He looks just like the man who attacked me and killed my brother...
1: /After losing our parents, my brother and I used our father's pension and worked part-time jobs to protect the house he left us. It was a hard life, but we worked hard and enjoyed each other's company.
2: /Then, one day, a hellish incident took place...
3: /It happened in the winter of my second year in high school, and my brother's first year of middle school...
4: /My brother was out playing baseball, and I had just finished my part-time job at a restaurant nearby and was preparing dinner.
SFX: DING DONG
1: /The man who appeared at the door then was that police officer... he was searching around for an arsonist who was said to be lurking around in the area, so I let him inside...
2: /Then, after he made sure no one was home...
3: /He quietly crept up behind me, just like a snake eying its prey!
2: Stay still!!
3: No! Nooo!
4: /I desperately called for my brother!
5: Tatsuo! Please come home, Tatsuo!
6: /But as soon as he had his arms around me, he showed his true colors.
7: Shuddap! Quiet down!
8: /As soon as I fainted, he bared his fangs...
2: Mika? What happened?!
1: Aahh! Tatsuo!
2: Shuddap! This all happened because you're being too noisy!
3: Just shut up, and no one else will interfere!
1: /Every day, I wore a cross necklace, a memento from my mother, around my neck. In that moment, I used it to slice two wounds in his back!
3: /That's when the neighbors arrived, just in the nick of time.
5: Hino-san, is something wrong?!
6: /The man took all his things and ran out through the back door...
1: /All that he left in the hallway was the cold body of my brother...
2: /He pushed me from loneliness down into despair, and I think about getting revenge on him every single day. I can't believe he's right in front of e now...
3: Wh-what's wrong, Mika? Why are you standing up?!
4: It has to be him!!
1: Ah, he's leaving.
2: He's leaving with that girl!
3: Come with me, Rin!
4: Alright, but where are we going?!
5: Just tell me what's going on! What did you see in the binoculars?!
6: I'll tell you later! Just hurry!
7: We're leaving? But this is the best part!
1: Wh-where did he go?!
2: He's gone!
1: It really is him!
2: /He looks just like him, but I can't do anything until I find out whether or not he has those scars on his back...
3: /I have to follow him. All the way to his house, if I need to, in order to find out the truth...
5: Hold on a minute. Are you following that couple?
6: Who the hell are they?
1: Don't tell me that man is the guy you've been searching for! The one who killed your brother...
2: Shhh! Be quiet!
3: They stopped moving!
4: They really are a couple!
1: They're splitting up!
2: Rin! Please follow that woman for me!
3: I'm going to follow the man!
5: /Even if he's really the man who killed my brother...
6: /I don't need to worry about him recognizing my face. After the incident, I had plastic surgery done when I was a junior and changed my face...
7: /The only thing I need to do is find out whether he has scars on his back...
8: /He turned the corner!
2: H-he's gone!
3: Wh-where did he go?
SIGN: Parking Lot
5: He drove here?!
1: wait! I didn't get his license plate!
2: I-I can't lose him here!
3: I need a taxi!
4: Oh no! There aren't any!
5: Oh no... I followed him all the way here, and now...
6: Ahhh... he's gone...
7: I have no choice now... I'll just have to focus on the woman Rin's following...
2: Ahh, Mika! How did it go?!
3: Unfortunately, he drove here, and got away in his car... what about you?
4: I'm still on her.
5: Look, she's going that way.
6: She sure seems fine walking down dark alleys like this...
1: How long is she gonna keep walking for?
3: Be quiet!
4: Or you die!
1: Ahh! Mika! It's a rapist!
2: He's attacking her! We need to help her!
4: That look on her face... she's no normal woman.
1: Mika, she's in deep shit! We need to do something!
2: Shhh! Quiet!
1: Aaahh! Mika!
3: She's a female cop?!
2: Why don't you come with me now?
3: Stand up!
1: St-stop! Please, don't shoot!
2: She's one hell of a cop, Mika! She took out that rapist in no time...
5: Fuckin' bitch!!
2: Woaaahh! She fired from her left just like it was her right -- AND in that weird pose!
3: I said it once, and I'll say it again -- she's one hell of a cop!
5: H-help... please...
1: Alright, loverboy,
2: stand up!
3: P-please! Just let me put on my pants!
4: Pants?! You've got to be kidding me.
5: You're a pervert, aren't you? I thought you could hardly bear to keep them on!
6: Now stand up and walk!
7: Yes ma'am...
8: /I'll have to find out what her name is and what precinct she works at...
9: /The man she's dating looks exactly like the man that attacked me... if I get close to her, then I might be able to meet him...
2: Wow! He forgot to put his pants on!
3: Wow! He's pretty big down there!
4: He's bigger than a horse!
1: She took him straight to the station...
2: Let's go inside and find out what her name is.
3: Oh, that woman who just came in? She's a lady cop who arrested a pervert...
4: Her name is Hayamizu Ryuuko. She's a pretty tough cookie, you know!
5: Hayamizu Ryuuko...
1: I'm Hayamizu... what do you want?
2: I just thought it was fantastic how you arrested that rapist...
3: Goodbye now...
4: /Hayamizu Ryuuko...
1: [28nd Precinct - A.K.A. the Crocodile Precinct
3: I found out where Hayamizu works and lives!
4: Really? That was quick! Good work!
5: She goes to a police academy... and she lives in a female officer's dorm in Hagiwara?!
1: You mean she's still going to school?
2: That's right... and she lives in the school dorm!
3: /Looks like we have no choice but to...
4: Hm? What's going on? You know you two need to report in to us once in a while!
5: Seems like you've been real busy investigating something all morning!
6: We were just making plans for a ladies' date on our day off!
7: That's right!
8: A ladies' date, huh? Don't you two have bigger things to worry about? Like the yearly exams? I'm hoping you'll bring us good results this year...
9: Otherwise, the Crocodile Precinct might get snapped off.
10: I have faith in you, though...
11: /The yearly exams...
1: She's doing horribly... she didn't even shoot inside the circle! What's wrong with her today?
2: She's been working at the Crocodile Precinct up until now?
3: Her body is rather delicate, you know... usually she always hits the mark perfectly... uhh...
4: Looking at her now, though, she looks like she doesn't even know how to use a gun.
1: She didn't get a single hit in with hip shooting either.
3: Kneeling shooting is also zero...
4: Same with prone...
5: It doesn't make sense... even if she's sick or something... I've never seen Mika do this badly before!
2: Aahh! Not again!
4: That's enough!
5: Mika... unfortunately, I think you'll need to go back to basic training.
6: You need to start over from square one. From tomorrow, I'm sending you back to the police academy!
1: Be careful!
1: There they are...
2: Forward march!
1: Phew, I made it! Mika, are you really going to go back to basic training?!
2: But I was ordered to...
3: Come on, don't give me that bull.
4: I know you failed the tests on purpose.
5: Oh? Who knows, I might really be that bad...
6: Fine, Mika... do as you like. I won't stop you. I know you must have a good reason. Whatever it is, good luck, alright?
7: Thank you for letting me have my way. I appreciate it.
8: Be safe...
1: /I know what Mika's after... she's trying to get close to Hayamizu Ryuuko...
2: /That's why she failed the exam on purpose... to get the boss to send her back to school!
3: /She wants to get close to Hayasui because of Hayasui's boyfriend... he's the one she's really after.
4: /Mika's really target is that man... the one who killed her little brother...
5: /The man with two cross scars on his back...
SIGN: Women's Police Academy
1: I'm Hino Mika. I was ordered by the 82nd Precinct to redo my training here.
2: The 82nd Precinct?!
3: So you slipped, eh?
1: Here, follow me. We don't need unskilled people here either, you know. You should remember that.
2: If your grades get too low, you're getting expelled! And unlike other schools, our training is extra rigorous!
SIGN: Changing Room
3: Change your clothes here. Normal clothes go on the left, uniforms on the right.
4: Yes sir.
1: Excuse me, but may I change now?
2: Since you got sent back, there's no telling what you might be up to. I have to keep a close eye on you and your belongings.
3: I'm just doing my job.
4: Regardless of your reason, no men should be allowed in the women's changing room.
5: Please wait outside.
6: You're talking back to your superior?
7: There's nothing but women here, you know. I've seen more naked women than I can count.
8: Just change. There's nothing to worry about it.
9: Sorry, but I'm not a stripper.
1: How dare you?! Fine then, I'll just have to change your clothes for you!
2: Who do you think you are, huh?! You couldn't even pass a damn test!
3: You don't want to see me when I get mad...
5: There. Just settle down. That's a good girl.
1: Now change your clothes. Here, I'll help you out.
2: Now raise your leg...
2: G-goddammit! H-how dare you?!
3: But you told me to raise my leg...
4: You think you can get away with this?!
5: Wh-what's wrong?!
1: Th-this new student resisted by orders!
2: A new student...?
3: She'll have to run 20 laps around the gym as a punishment, then.
4: No! 30!
5: B-but I...
6: The officers' word is law here!
7: Now run! Run in exactly what you have on right now!
5: Who's that?
6: An officer who was being sent back. She's being retrained right now.
1: Haa, haa
3: We're not finished yet!
SIGN: Women Police Dorm
1: /It's only the first day, and I'm already sick of this place.
2: /There was one stroke of good luck, though... I'm in the same room as Hayasui.
2: Wh-what are you doing?!
4: That's some way to talk to your seniors...
5: I'll say! She didn't even ask us before she went to sleep!
6: Your name is Hino Mika, isn't it? I've seen you somewhere before...
7: Oh, really? I can't say I recall...
1: No, I know I've seen you somewhere...
2: Let's just hurry up and give her the ritual!
4: Everyone goes through this ritual. Do your best.
5: Yeah! You have to do it, okay?!
6: Wh-what kind of a ritual is it?
7: Oh, it's nothing too hard. All the other newbies have done it.
8: We've been training so hard all day that we've gotten hungry now. So hungry we can't even sleep!
9: So we want you to sneak into the cafeteria and get some food for us.
10: They have a lot of canned food and drinks in there.
2: You want me to steal from the police academy?
3: No one said steal! It's just a ceremony!
4: Well? Are you gonna do it or not?
5: What happens if I say no?
7: Hino, it's in your best interest to do as we say. Trust me...
1: Fufufu... there she goes.
1: Wow! There really is a lot of food in here.
1: She went inside! Looks like it's time to let her have it...
2: OK! Ushishishi...
1: Oh no! This was a trap!
2: What? What's going on?!
3: Who rang the alarm? What's going on?!
5: I dunno, officer! Did something happen? It's really noisy!
1: What's wrong? What happened?!
2: I'm not sure, sir!
3: Was there a fire? A break-in?
4: Everyone split up and search the grounds!
5: Uheheheheh... this is really getting good now!
6: I can't wait to see where she tries to run to.
7: I know I've seen her somewhere before...
1: Oh no, it's them...
2: Nothing here either!
1: Hm? No one's in here, sir!
2: That's strange...
3: Perhaps it's a thief, sir? I know it may be hard to believe, but...
4: Use your heads, you idiots! This is a women's dorm! There's no telling what sorta pervert might sneak in here! And besides, this is an age when people can even sneak into the Prime Minister's mansion!
1: It's so cold!
3: H-hurry up and go away...
4: Alright, I guess we'll look somewhere else.
1: Wake up! I got your food!
4: How could you fall asleep after ordering me to steal like that?!
5: I brought lots of food for you!
6: Now eat!
1: H-how dare you?! You have no right to do this!
2: Goddammit! Hino!!
3: Would you be quiet already?!
4: (Oh no...
1: It's time to wake up, you reprobates! Didn't you hear the buzzer?!
2: Get up! Everyone is to report to the gym at once!
3: /Huh? It's morning already?
4: /Oh well. I have no choice but to keep working hard here... until I find out the truth about Hayasui Ryuuko's boyfriend, that is...
1: [Kitabata Manor
1: Young master, I've prepared your breakfast.
2: Young master!
3: Are you still asleep?
4: Huh? He's gone...
5: He must have gotten up already.
1: I wonder where he went? Off on a morning walk?
3: Is he in the bathroom?
4: Young master?
3: Why are you peeping on me?!
5: I-I'm sorry. I wasn't peeping.
6: It's just... breakfast is...
7: I-I'm sorry!
8: Wait, Ochiyo!
9: /Shit. She's seen my back now...
3: I'm so sorry, young master!
4: Why did you barge in there without knocking, Ochiyo?
5: I-I'm sorry. I... I'll do anything. Just please, forgive me...
1: Aahhh, young master. I saw nothing today... absolutely nothing...
2: That's right. You forgot everything.
1: Welcome back, sir.
2: Where's Naoki?
4: Hey dad, you're home.
5: Actually, I just stopped by. I still have to go back to work.
6: It's already noon! What are you doing still dressed like that?
1: I was just taking a shower.
2: You always seem so busy!
4: I wish you'd give me some work to do too. I'm really getting rusty at home here...
5: Young men need to work their bodies hard every day, right?
6: I know, I know.
7: It's just, there's no telling what you'll do if I let you out there...
8: But you can't just keep treating me like a child...
9: Being imprisoned at home like this is torture!
10: Watch your tone, Naoki.
11: Torture, you say... you know, if the world had its way, there's no way you'd ever be able to sleep in until noon again.
12: Without me, you'd be stewing in a prison cell right now.
1: And you dare call this torture?
2: I know, I know!
3: Geez! All you ever do is scold me!
4: Sensei, it's time.
5: Just keep enjoying yourself until I tell you otherwise.
7: Are you seeing any women right now?
9: You need to take responsibility for everything you do. I will not permit any more mistakes...
10: I know, dad!
2: I guess he's just going to keep me here as long as he's working as a government minister...
3: Take responsibility for everything I do, huh?
4: If I did that, I'd suffocate!
SIGN: Women's Police Academy
1: Hayasui-san, you've got a phone call!
2: Thanks, I'll be right there.
3: Eheheheh! It's your man, isn't it?
4: Must be exciting!
1: Mm... okay. Tonight? Sure. The usual place? Got it!
2: /Tonight... Hayasui's going to meet with that man tonight...
3: /The man who killed my little brother...
1: Alright. See you tonight, then...
2: OK, I know.
3: At 10 PM. It's date!
1: /Tonight at 10... that's when they're going to meet...
2: /The man I've been searching for, rain or shine, for the past years of my life... the man who took my brother...
3: /I abandoned my own name, my family, and even my youth to find this man... the man I hate more than any other... I'm going to see him tonight...
4: /I know it's him... all I can do is pray that he still has those wounds on his back...
5: /10 PM is after lights out. Hayasui's going to sneak out...
1: Ryuuko, you have a date tonight, don't you?
2: You need to polish your body extra hard!
3: Is it the same man as before?
5: Leave the sneak-out to us! We'll take care of everything!
1: Or so you say... but you always fall asleep beforehand! Hahaha...
1: Do you know Hayasui's boyfriend?
2: Nope, I've never met him.
3: I've never seen a picture of him, either. Don't even know his name!
4: I see...
2: Tch! She isn't half bad!
3: She's that agile, and she was still sent back here?!
3: Wh-what's wrong, Yokko?!
4: Th-the soap... it went inside!
1: Dammit! Just you wait!
2: I may be sexually frustrated, but I'm not that desperate!
3: Hey, be quiet! What are you doing in here?!
4: /Hmm... I'll need a car to follow Hayasui tonight.
5: /Last time, I lost him because he had a car and I didn't. I know, I'll call Rin...
1: [The Crocodile Precinct
2: Ahh! Mika, it's been so long! How's life been in school?
3: Oh, it's just he usual here. Huh? A car?
4: /I want you to sneak a car out from the office without telling the boss. I need it by 9 PM tonight!
5: Alright, leave it to me! Looks like you've locked on to your target, eh? See you later, then...
6: Who was that, Rin?
7: Oh, just some mah jong sales call. I told 'em to fuck off!
SIGN: Women's Dorms
1: /And she's off...
2: /If I lose her, it's all over...
1: /That must be their meeting spot...
2: /But I know that when he shows up, he'll come by car...
3: /This is going to make things difficult... what is Rin doing? She's already 30 minutes late...
4: /Hurry up, Rin! Otherwise this is all going to fail...
1: What'd you say, you scumbag?!
2: Shut up, you crazy woman! Where'd you learn how to drive?!
3: I'm in a hurry here! How are you gonna pay for this, huh?!
5: You're the one who crashed into me, you psycho!
6: He's here!
2: Oh no! She went inside!
3: Aaahh! They're leaving!
4: Get on. You're going after that car, aren't you?
5: Th-thank you! I really appreciate it!
6: In return, sleep with me tonight!
1: Well? What'll it be?
2: I'll stick to that car like white on rice! In return, all you need to do is keep me company for one night!
3: It's getting farther and farther away...
5: But in that case...
1: I want you to make absolutely sure that they don't notice us...
2: Get on, Cinderella...
3: Leave it to me!
4: What's your name?
6: I'm Hayashi Junya!
1: That's the car, right? He's really putting the pedal to the metal...
2: I want you to keep up with him, but don't let him get any ideas.
3: He can't find out...
4: Easier said than done!
5: Why are you following that car, anyway? Looked like a woman went in... did she steal your man from you?
6: You could say that...
1: Thanks to you, my jeep is fucked! Now I won't be able to make it to Mika in time!
2: You fat little turd! This is all your fault for being such a shit driver, you know!
3: And how dare you strike me?! If people find out I got hit by a woman, my ancestors will turn in their grave!
3: Oryahh! You're no woman! No quarter!
4: Woah! Is that a female pro wrestler or something?!
5: This is one hell of a fight!
2: Uuuu... aaahhh...
3: Howdya like that?!
4: Woah! A cobra twist!
5: This is awesome! It's live pro wrestling!
2: Mika! It's me! Rin!
3: Wait! Mika!
1: Where the hell is he taking her?!
2: /I know it's him... I just know it...
3: /I just need to find proof...
1: He's going into a back street...
SIGN: Restaurant - Ran
2: A restaurant, huh? Guess they're going to have dinner here.
3: Be careful!
4: I know, I know.
5: Let's follow them inside.
6: We need to find a table that's far away from theirs...
2: Two coffees over here, please.
3: You don't want them to see your face, right?
4: Yes... but he shouldn't recognize my face even if he does see me.
5: What? What does that mean? You've just been pining for him?
6: Wow, color me surprised... I thought for sure you were in love and someone got between you or something...
1: Your eyes.
2: What do you see in them?
3: The flames of revenge...
4: What's his name.
5: I don't know...
6: What? You don't know?! Then you have no idea who he is at all?!
7: That's right...
8: Geez! This is ridiculous. Here, I'll just go ask him myself!
9: Stop! I've been waiting for this chance for years... if you cause trouble here, then all my work will have been for naught.
10: For years?!
11: Wh-what kind of past do you have with that man?
12: I can't tell you about that right now.
13: Shh! He's getting up...
