Wow! It’s finally Miura time! Everyone’s favorite dapper boy! Aren’t you all excited?
…No one’s buying that, huh? *sigh* Welp, let’s get to it then.
I truly cannot believe you assholes.
Chapter 32: Nenji Ogata 4
May God have mercy on your souls.
Music: LONER (Azusa Chiba)
Maybe you’ve got a point. I should slow down and think a little… Still, though… …… Hey, are you even listening?
*sigh* I’m back… It’s happening all over again…
Consider League of Darkness
(That was weird… Why’d I think Fuyusaka looked like that League of Darkness lady? I’m not seein’ things, right?)
(That League of Darkness lady… She said somethin’ weird when she had me at gunpoint. She said I was the one who had this key in the first place. But none of this is ringin’ a bell… Can’t figure this out.)
Let’s head over and talk to Iori about what just happened.
This time, Nenji just bursts in, no hesitation.
You trying to pick on Iori now?
*shakes head* Please, Kisaragi. Just relax for a sec.
I’m beggin’ you here!
Well, let’s get to questioning.
Um… What do you mean?
It was some trick, yeah?
A test…? What are you talking about?
*sigh* Maybe you should actually explain what you’re talking about, man.
Use League of Darkness on Iori Fuyusaka
Okay, what’s your connection to that black catsuit lady?
League of… Darkness…? What are you talking about?
Use Key on Iori Fuyusaka
You told me somethin’ like I used to carry this key, right?
Ogata-kun, I’m really not sure I follow…
Ah, dammit. I gotta figure out how to say this right… Okay, so you haven’t said it yet, but you’re going to tell me soon…
I just wanna know what it all means.
I really don’t know what you’re talking about…
And so Nenji humiliates himself yet again to no benefit!
If we wait for a short bit, Ryoko will show up on the train platform.
We, of course, need to talk to her.
You’re here too…?
I have to go…
Use Key on Ryoko Shinonome
Though I guess it’s not really a normal key? Probably…?
Man, how do I say this…
Yeah, a key.
Shouldn’t we call someone over?
Someone like who?
Like… a station worker?
Nah, waste of time.
It’s just gonna throw us back to the beginning.
Hey… what’s going on with you?
Are you okay…?
Worth noting the three trains in this scene. The first is the one Iori and Okino get on. The second is the one Ryoko is about to get on. And if both of those leave, then there’s just the one Tomi gets on left.
Do I go after her?
We actually have to walk left this time. How novel.
Music: Deafening Silence (Mitsuhiro Kaneda)
Musta been her symptoms again. Looks like she passed out…
We don’t actually know about that yet, Nenji!
Why’s he with her? Why’re they both knocked out? …The hell happened here? Somethin’ in his hand…
Ah fuck, it’s Ida!
Label’s not tellin’ me much…
Music: Something’s Fishy (Kikuchi Yukinori)
What’re you talkin’ about, old man…?
It sounds like you know about Shinonome-kun’s condition. So you should already understand. The symptoms she endures come from that poison.
But even with all their sacrifices… They cannot stop the D-forces’ attack.
That’s all the big mecha kaiju, right?
Born in our future. Crossing time to destroy us. It all comes down to fifteen teenagers.
That is not the amount of teenagers that was advertised to me!
The “commanders” of the D-forces.
It is a curse. One we cannot escape.
Who even are you?
It doesn’t matter anymore. I’m just a man in the past now. But it was never the kaiju. The problem, the true blot on this world, was always the D-forces’ creator.
WE WERE THE WALKING DEAD ALL ALONG OH NOOOOOOO
Music: Time Drain (Rikako Watanabe)
…… Can you hear me? If you can hear my voice, then report.
…… I found Ryoko Shinonome. When I got on the train, I found her out cold… Sounded like the poison got to her.
Guy named Sekigahara was knocked out, too. That got anything to do with your key?
…I think I get what’s going on here. But those two don’t match up with my information. It’s definitely someone else. When you see this key… Well, no matter what it looks like, you should know it’s THE key.
What’s going on in that train…? Something’s not right there… When I’m inside the train, things always seem messed up.
You need to take a closer look.
He was with Fuyusaka…
Well, we’ve finally re-unlocked Hijiyama’s story progression. However…
…We’ve also unlocked Ryoko. I’ll leave it to you all to decide which is more pressing.
The poll is here.
