1: This is space shuttle Eagle! Come in, HQ!
2: We're Code QL with damages from an unknown source!
3: We crash-landed at point 524136. We request immediate pickup!
4: Is "it" safe?!
5: Well, about that...
1: Umm, how should I say this... It seems that part of it escaped from a hole in the hull...
2: We still have the rest, though.
3: SHIT! How many times did I tell you? This is a top secret mission!!
1: New York
2: When the monster that appeared and destroyed the geothermal plant got near the volcano,
3: a humanoid monster appeared and started fighting with it.
4: Soon, the initial monster became overpowered, and was finally swallowed up into some strange spatial rift.
1: I heard the stories, but wow! They really do look like monsters!
2: That film crew was so lucky! Since they got this scoop all for themselves, they must have gotten one heck of a bonus!
3: They analyzed the residue that was leftover, and it turns out both of them really were from another planet...
4: What's the giant's deal, then?
5: Oh no...
6: We've got nothing but questions now...
7: Is that giant on our side? Or...
SFX: GWEEEEN GWEEEEN...
1: But it didn't fight back against the army at all. It just... disappeared.
2: It hurt so bad when I turned back into Zima...
2: Hey, you three! Great work! BSNN is ecstatic!
3: After all, our ratings are at 78% right now!!
SFX: CLAP CLAP CLAP
4: Thanks to the monster, right?
5: Nope! Not quite! You, you creative journalists, even when danger was right in your face, you didn't run! You kept the cameras rolling, and that bravery of yours grasped the hearts of the whole world!
6: Anyway, we got a week off now, so...
7: No phone calls whatsoever!
8: Don't be silly! We're waiting 24/7 for you geniuses to bring us in another big fish!
9: No way!
10: The truth is, today, I heard a NASA space shuttle crashed...
11: That's a job for a TV reporter!
1: Hey, just hear me out! Apparently, there was something really important in that shuttle.
2: The CIA, then.
3: Anywho, what I want you three to do is...
4: What's wrong, Hiroto? You aren't thinking of actually... taking the job?!
1: Well, you know what they say - Japanese people work too hard!
2: But Hiroto, you're usually right about these things, so maybe it'll be another big scoop!
3: If it isn't, I'll take you both out for the West Coast's finest!
4: With what money?!
2: Is something wrong with the car? Did they give us a piece of junk after all?!
4: Aaahhh!! Wh-what is that?!
SFX: SCREECH SCREECH
1: What the hell?!
2: Wh-what is that? Some kind of creature? Or an alien?!
3: Hold on!
4: It looks like it's exhausted...
5: It seems like an infant, and it isn't hostile either.
6: Forget about it! Just leave this stuff for the police to sort out!
7: The phone's out...
1: A NASA carrier!
3: Hey, it's shaking.
4: Like it's really scared or something.
5: It can't hear us... it's still just a baby...
6: That wasn't an attack back there... It merely got scared by the car and tried to protect itself.
1: Maybe the boss wasn't full of crap after all...
3: I'll take care of it...
1: Guess we didn't make it in time.
2: That carrier must have scooped up the rest of it.
3: Hey, you!!
4: What are you doing over there?!
5: We're a film crew from Planets.
6: What happened here?
7: You don't need to know.
8: We're policemen who were hired by NASA for a special protection mission... Did you happen to see something on your way here?
1: H... e... l... p...
2: What do you mean... 'something?'
4: H... e... l... p... Re... nia...
5: Fine, just get out of here!
6: But depending on what you record, the government reserves the right to censor it before it goes on air!
1: Hiroto... chief...
2: The baby... it talked to me...
4: What intelligence! It learned to speak in such a short period of time?!
1: It's running away?!
2: Wh-what the?!
1: It's searching... It's puffing up itself and desperately searching for something!!
1: This... is bad...
2: I must... hur... ry...
