#25. Evil Incarnate, Sharpening its Claws
1: [Crocodile Precinct
3: The Minister of Justice is coming to our precinct?!
4: That's right. He just came to the headquarters, so he should be on his way.
5: U-understood, sir. Is this some sort of emergency?!
6: The Minister will speak to you about it personally -- alone.
7: Y-yes sir!
8: I-I will await him, then.
1: Boss! Did you just say the Minister's coming here?!
2: Minister Kitabata?!
3: That's right! He's coming straight here!
4: Clean up that area right now, Takashina!
5: Where did Mika and Rin go?!
6: I think they went out...
7: What terrible timing... let's just get this place cleaned up!
8: Yes sir!
9: Mika, looks like someone important's here.
10: I wonder who?
1: He's too far. I can't tell who it is...
2: I'm going in alone.
3: What did you just say, Minister?! Hino Mika?!
4: That's right! This is a direct order! Relocate her to a foreign country at once!
1: I want her relocated in a foreign country! Did you hear me?!
2: In a foreign country?!
4: Minister, what did Hino do? Why does she need to be sent away so suddenly?
5: If she caused some sort of trouble, then it's only right that I, her chief, should know the details...
6: There's no need for me to explain all that here. Just get her relocated!
7: And let me know the country within three days!
8: Did you hear me, Ogata?! This is a direct order from me!!
1: Please wait! Minister!
2: Hino is one of my most capable subordinates. I... I can't just send her away without a good reason!
3: Ogata... are you saying you're going to defy a direct order from Kitabata Raizou, the Minister of Justice?
4: But Minister... please, listen to what I'm saying!
1: Hino was already sent on a mission to the USA by your orders one year ago.
2: We forced her to get on that plane without any sort of explanation.
3: Of course, I had no means of explaining the reason to her either.
4: Why are you still treating her as a nuisance?
5: Do you bear some sort of personal grudge against Hino, sir?
1: Not being concerned about every little detail about a case is part of an officer's job!
2: Obeying orders as soon as they are given, regardless of your own personal knowledge, is the true duty of a police officer!
3: Am I wrong, Ogata?!
4: N-no, sir. You're exactly right.
5: But Minister...
6: What possible reason could the Minister of Justice have to target a female officer like this?
7: Shut up! I didn't come here to listen to you whine! You're sending Hino Mika out of the country, and that is final!
1: And I'm prepared to deal with you if you fail to obey my orders.
2: Also, Ogata... this is only between me and you.
3: Do not speak word of this to anyone! Understood?!
4: /If he's that serious about this, then he'll surely make it impossible for Mika to return to Japan once she's sent out this time...
5: /What happened between those two?
6: /There must be something... they must have some sort of past!
1: Rin! Take care of these for me!
1: /That's her! Hino Mika!
1: /But... she doesn't know who I am...
1: Hey, Mika, that man just now...
2: Yeah... I was trying to figure out where I've seen him before.
3: Pfft! Mika, I can't believe you!
4: I just remembered... that's our ultimate leader!
5: Ultimate leader?!
6: That's right. The Minister of Justice, Kitabata-san!
7: Oh, right... we should have given him a salute, then.
8: Maybe we would've got a bonus! Hahaha!
1: /So that's Hino Mika... it's my first time seeing her up close... there was a glimmer in her eyes...
2: /She has fangs... she kicked my assassin out the window... it's clear that she's no normal woman...
3: /But I won't let her lay a finger on my son... so long as blood is pumping through my veins...
1: Did something happen, boss?
2: You look really deep in thought...
3: Oh, it's you...
4: D-don't worry. It's nothing.
1: He wants me to send her out of the country without any reason...
2: And with his power, he'll be able to make it permanent...
1: So you really did come here to drink, Ogata... I found out where I want you to send the girl.
2: I even prepared all the documents for you.
3: She'll be sent away in one week's time... to Alaska!
1: Hahaha! I didn't know there was a club like this around here!
2: Yeah! And they aren't saggy old grannies, either! They're young and hot!
1: Yeah, baby!
3: Next, take off your undies, sweetie!
4: Theeee end!
7: Some strip show this is!
8: This is fraud! Pure fraud!
9: I paid 5,000 yen to get in here! I didn't come to see some little girl dance around!
10: Give us back our money!
1: Shut up! Whoever said there was going to be a strip show in here?
2: All we had to do was say we were going to dance for you, and you animals came running!
3: Shuddap! We each paid 5,000 yen for this shit! If you're gonna dance, you need to take more off!
4: Take it all off!
5: Yeah! Damn straight!
6: Fine. I'll take it all off...
7: But you know how the police are about adults forcing minors to perform lewd acts...
8: Shit... I don't believe this!
9: She totally got us...
10: Now scram!
11: They virtually robbed us at gunpoint...
12: Just when I thought I'd finally see some perky, juicy ones...
1: Kids these days! Sheesh!
2: Heheheh! And good riddens! Be sure to come back next time!
3: Like hell we will!
4: Heheheh... it's so easy to make money on the fly.
1: That Ritsuko girl is really something...
2: She's really figured out how she needs to manipulate my father's authority...
1: Boss, what did you want to talk to me about?
1: What? Overseas?
2: Yes. It's an order from above...
3: Again?! This is the same thing as when I was sent to the USA! Is this a mission or a relocation?
4: It's a relocation. For a long time.
5: Boss, I refuse.
6: If you insist on going through with this... then please take this instead.
7: I've been carrying it with me the whole time.
8: N-no, I-I can't accept that right now!
9: Boss... I can't leave Japan right now.
1: Why? Why do I have to leave Japan?
2: I'm sorry, but I don't know the details...
3: /Again... that shadowy hand is reaching out to me again... whenever I start to get close, it always comes for me...
4: Mika, I know that you're working on a personal case right now, but... did anything unusual happen to you in your past?
5: Boss, as I told you earlier, I can't tell you about it yet.
6: I see.
7: Anyway... I absolutely refuse to leave the country.
8: If you insist on sending me, then I will quit.
9: I understand, Mika...
1: /She will leave for Alaska in one week!!
1: Hino said she didn't want to leave?!
2: So what?!
3: Sending her to Alaska is my order! Making it happen
4: is YOUR job!
5: I understand, Minister, but she is still a precious subordinate of mine!
6: I can't simply send her away without some sort of explanation...
8: Forget it! I'll get someone else to handle it!
1: Mika, come quick! The boss got into an accident out in the road!
2: What? The boss?!
4: Stay with us!!
5: Ahhh... Mika? It's alright... just listen to me, Mika... you can't go to Alaska... you have to keep working... you have to crack that case! Understand?!
1: Listen to me, Mika! You have to crack this case no matter what you do!
2: This is my... no, the last order from the Crocodile Precinct!
3: I will. Thank you so much...
5: I-I won't let something like this kill me...
6: Are you alright, boss? What happened? Who did this?!
7: Hurry up and call an ambulance!
1: Goddamit! It was a hit and run!
2: Mika! I'm going to go call for backup!
3: Who could have done this... goddammit!
4: Please do! Apparently it was a navy blue dump truck!
5: Rin! Stop standing around and call an ambulance!
7: Outta the way, mofos!
10: No, boss! Be quiet! You can't speak now!
1: Looks like the truck missed a bit...
2: He was definitely severely injured, though...
3: Failure is still failure. We need to end this for good now.
1: But Minister, why go so far to eliminate Ogata if all you want is Mika? With your power, can't you just send her abroad on your own?
2: It's possible... but do you think she'd accept it if I was the one to order her?
3: Nothing will change... she'll just submit her letter of resignation and quit.
4: And if she sees me give the order, then she'll start to suspect that I'm involved.
5: I understand sir... but I still think pursuing Ogata is dangerous. If he were to say something about you...
6: That's why we need to make sure he doesn't!
7: He's a fool... how dare he measure me against one of his worthless subordinates, only to choose her in the end?!
SIGN: CENTRAL SURGERY ROOM
1: I'm just glad he's still with us...
2: But his arms, legs, and head got hit pretty hard, so we'll have to be careful.
3: But he's conscious! That's what's important!
4: He'll be back to normal with a little rest.
1: What about the boss's order, Mika? To crack that case...
2: Yeah, I know.
3: You don't need to worry about the boss.
4: I'll keep watch over him.
5: Thanks. I'll still come every day to check on him, though.
6: And don't let us catch you sleeping all the time just because the nurses are on a full shift!
7: I know, I know. Just relax and go crack the case!
1: /There's Ritsuko!
2: /Finally, I found that bitch... I shouldn't have wasted all that time wandering around the clothes sections!
3: Now she's all ours! I gotta go tell Mika!
4: /All we need to do is catch Ritsuko, and we'll find out who really killed Mika, as well as who's targeting her now!
5: /Ritsuko knows all the secrets...
6: Yes, it is a bit expensive.
7: But they're all very nice pearls.
1: Can I see that one too?
3: Sorry, but I just don't like any of these.
4: Yeah, I'm getting bored.
5: Let's go home!
6: That guy was such an idiot! Heheheh...
1: Wh-what do you want? You really like popping out unexpectedly, don't you...
2: What was your name again? Mika? What do you want from me?
3: There's a lot we want!
4: I saw you steal the jewelry from that department store.
5: Depending on the circumstances, it could earn you two or three days in a cell.
6: What? A cell?! What do you mean by that?!
7: Shuddap! What, do you need us to show you our black leather pocketbooks? You really wanna do it that way?
8: What? Y-you people are cops?!
1: That's hilarious. You sure don't look like one!
2: And so what if you are?!
3: She thinks she can arrest you? Kyahahaha!
4: Where's the proof that we stole anything?!
5: Yeah! What exactly did I steal?!
6: Tch! Enough of your bullshit!
7: Ahh! Wh-what--
9: Let's strip her, Mika!
2: Hah! That hiding place is the oldest one in the book!
3: You still gonna play innocent now?!
1: Well? We've got our proof now, don't we?
2: You've been caught red-handed!
3: Looks like Rin got the best of you!
4: Even if you were caught shoplifting in the department store, there's no way the security guard would try and check in that place.
5: Dammit! You're going to pay for this! You hear me?!
6: C'mon! What are you two standing around for? Get 'em!
1: We're gonna fuckin' kill you!!
1: Anyone up...
2: for a barbecue?
5: Hmph! Look at 'em! Some loyal friends they are!
6: Now stop squiggling, Ritsuko. You're comin' with us.
7: You idiots... if you take me to a police station, you're the only ones who'll get in trouble! You don't know anything...
8: Ritsuko, don't think we haven't figured out what's going on here. You're being backed by someone very big right now...
9: Even if someone catches you, that someone makes sure that you never get put away. Which means that you and your gang have been stealing, doing drugs, and basically doing whatever you want... however.
1: It doesn't how matter how big your guardian angel may be... once the crocodiles bite, we never let go!
2: Got it?! Then just shut up and come with us!
3: You can save the complaints for later.
4: What are you doing, Mika?!
1: Hurry up and get in!
1: Ahhh! Nooo!
2: Goddammit! Who was in that car?!
3: I don't know... but he must have been following her.
4: Just when we were about to make Ritsuko talk!
1: I was surprised to see you show up so suddenly like that.
2: Still think I'm useless? I've been following you for days.
3: You looked like you were in trouble, so I was glad I could help.
4: Who was that woman, by the way?
5: Hino Mika. She works for the Crocodile Precinct or something.
6: Hino Mika?!
7: Th-that woman... is Hino...?!
8: /I think I've ran into her several times before, but that was the first time I saw her face clearly!
9: /So... that's Hino Mika...
1: Oh yeah, that reminds me. Seems like Mika's searching like mad for you... Kitabata Kazuya.
3: Wh-what are you doing?!
4: Isn't it obvious? I can't let her keep running around like this!
5: Are you retarded?! This is why people keep calling you a stupid rich boy!
6: That's no normal woman back there! She's a cop, and she works for the Crocodile Precinct!
1: But only an idiot would wait for her to come get him!
2: You don't need to panic. You'll have a ton of chances to get her later... by using your dad's power, for example. You'll be able to do whatever you want to her. Heheheh...
3: I owe her now too. I wouldn't mind helping out.
4: Now stop being such a grump!
5: There's no way she can take us if we work together.
6: If only I'd had my shiv with me, she'd be in pieces now...
