315Cinema Collection: Rampage/Event Scenes
From The iDOLM@STER: SideM Unofficial English Wiki
“I am a hero!!”
Thank you very much for coming to watch the final day of Shadow 9’s cheering movie shooting!
(Cheers and applause)
I’m Seiji Shingen, acting as “Rich Spencer.” Haha, thank you. This is just like a live!
But today, I won’t be singing. In place of that, I’ll fire the place up with the topic of our next installment!
Now then, let’s get started. Let me introduce the exceptional staff members of our company, SION!
Yahoo! Everyone, doing well? I’m engineer, “Bill Gram,” actor, Pierre! Thank you for your time!
Good afternoon. I’ll be acting as SION’s scientist, “John D. Smith,” Yukihiro Kamiya.
Also a scientist, my character is “Jean Murdoch,” and I’m Sora Kitamura~. Please take care of us~.
Finally, I will be the protagonist of this movie. Acting as “Kenji Minamoto,” my name is Kuro Kiyosumi.
In Shadow 9, did you watch how Kyoji and the others worked? So cool, right? I watched it a ton!
I wonder what kind of story the next one will be like? I’m already excited for it.
There might be some mysteries scattered here and there throughout the previous episode that will get uncovered in this one.
The actors in this work will come together with their hearts as one, and we’ll challenge it with all we have, so please do expect good things from us~.
We will strive with our utmost ability so that everyone will be able to enjoy this movie.
Good morning~. Good work on the stage greetings the other day~.
Thundering applause / We learn that expectations / For us rise higher. We’ll have to get equally fired up too~.
Exactly. Because it is part of a series, we’ll have to ride on the momentum from the previous work, and connect to the next one.
Shadow 9 was well received, so I’m sure that’ll be a significant hurdle to overcome, but that just means the worth in giving it a try is more than enough.
Script I got, already read! So so interesting!
Pierre-kun, you sure are excited. Though, really, I am too.
Since it’s a story that follows up from Shadow 9, this set of developments couldn’t have happened if it weren’t a series.
Yeah. I was absorbed in flipping the pages, and time just flew by.
I felt the same. As I read the script, I began to anticipate the acting portion more and more.
I’m sure you must be thrilled to have such a pivotal role as well, Kitamura-san.
…You’re right~. I sure am excited~.
(But there’s no way I can openly enjoy it, honestly~)
Kitamura-san, is there something that’s worrying you?
Please don’t hold back and talk to us about it. We might be able to help you out somehow.
Yes. Sora is worrying, I’m worry. I, want to help.
Ahaha. It’s not that serious of a conundrum, really~. It’s just, I’m not skilled when it comes to science-related subjects~…
See, the script also has lots of difficult formulae and theories that show up in it, right~?
My role Jean Murdoch is young, and despite that, he’s a genius who’s become the head scientist. I guess I could say I’m worried whether or not I’d be able to act out that kind of role~.
I see. That’s what you were worried about?
I’m not good at studying either, so I can really sympathize with how you feel.
Everyone study, Chemistry, to do?
Studying~? Before that, I think it’d be best to improve my awareness on the parts that I’m bad with~.
How to solve, bad parts awareness? Hmm. So hard…
What to do…
Oh, I have an idea. How about we try out some simple recreation to fix it?
We’ll do science projects that you can see as games. It’ll double up on how you become more familiar with things and deepen your compatibility with it.
I think that might be able to help out your awareness on your weaknesses, if only a little.
Experiment!? Sounds fun! Sora, let’s do together!
I’m in favor of it as well. Kitamura-san, would you like to give it a try?
Sure. I’m glad for the suggestion~. Let’s give it a shot~.
Umm. Add color to the hot water, and then melt the borax. The amount will be…
Put in glue, spin spin, mix, mix, mix… Ooh…! Kuro, look! It became slime! Fufu, so fun!
Indeed. It’s quite the mystery. Should we try changing the proportions next time we make it?
Yukihiro-san, I made the morning glory-extract watercolor~.
Thanks. I’m ready here, too. Let’s get started with the experiment.
Okay. I’ll mix in the citric acid now~… Oh! It turned pink~.
Mine has turned a nice, pretty green. It changes depending on whether or not it’s an acid or base, doesn’t it?
Depending on the amount you put in, the intensity of the colors will change too~. Interesting stuff~.
You’re right… Ah, speaking of which, that thing’s also the same. Okay, later, let’s all…
I’ll put dry ice into the box, and… Okay. Everyone, pay attention. Let’s get started…
* pushes the box *
Wow! Round fog, came out! This, shape of air? Mystery.
Yeah. That’s why I chose to do this. I played with my niece using this before, and she was thrilled about it, almost like it was magic. I thought it’d go over well this time, too.
I see. Magic, huh~? That way of thinking about it never occurred to me~.
“Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic,”…
We’re working with chemistry this time, but this phrase fits it to a tee~.
Advanced technology… magic… Ah! That, I know! Arthur C. Clarke, right!
You got it. Ah, then by that vein, it’ll be easier to remember the difficult theories if I think of them like they’re curses~.
Fufu. When it comes to magic, you have experience as a mage. That must be in your field of expertise, Kitamura-san.
I guess so~. Then, when I’m in trouble, I’d like a certain elite inspector to lend me his help~.
Clarke's three laws are three adages that were written by Arthur C. Clarke, the British science fiction writer, regarding the future. There is a reference to the event Write for someone ~A Reminiscent Sky~ at the end of this chapter. The roles of Akahoshi Mitsumasa (Sora’s character) and Chuck Lowe (Kuro’s character) are brought up as the “mage” and “inspector,” respectively.
Sorry to keep you waiting. I’ve set up preparations for teatime.
I hope you’ll take a look at this one type of magical chemistry I have here.
A light blue herb tea… Is this…?
It looks like you know about it. This is herb tea known as mallow blue.
Amazing! Color like the sky… So pretty ♪ Thanks for the drink!
Oh, could you hold on a little bit? This tea has a surprise to it.
Surprise, what is it? …Huh… Huhhh? Wait, little by little, color changing?
It’s becoming more purple, bit by bit~. It’s like that watercolor from before~.
Exactly. I remembered this while I was halfway through that experiment.
Now then, everyone. For the end of the experiment, please squeeze the lemons you have on the side.
Lemon… put in… Wow! This time, became pink! Yahoo! So cool, so cool!
Lemons, huh… Aah, so that means this one’s…
Yep, exactly. Like the morning glory-colored watercolor from before, this one makes use of antioxidants.
The mallow blue tea was alkaline when it had just been poured. That’s why it was sky blue, just like a jewel.
When it comes in contact with the air, it becomes more neutral, and it gradually turns purple.
And finally, when you sprinkle lemon juice on top, it’ll become pink due to the acidity… How was that? Interesting, wasn’t it?
Yeah. It’s definitely intriguing. Maybe I should show it to Amane sometime.
I didn’t expect chemistry to be something that existed in such close proximity to ourselves.
Fufu. I’m really grateful that this sort of opportunity was prepared for me~. Thank you all~.
I feel like I’ll be able to face Jean Murdoch head on and be positive about things, going forward~.
Yaah! Tah! HAH!
You’re very skilled. Even though we were just warming up, I couldn’t help but get serious against you.
Seiji, fighting technique, amazing. Thank you very much, for spar!
You two have worked hard today. That was amazing force behind those movements…
Yeah. I was so engrossed in watching, I almost forgot to breathe~.
Thank you. But Pierre, you really are amazing. You’ll be a great mentor with this.
Yes. Being able to borrow Pierre-san’s help is terribly reassuring.
After all, my character, Kenji, has the character background of being a scientist who also dabbles in karate.
I considered heading to a dojo before beginning the actual training, but having Pierre-san accompany me for practice is an incredibly great help.
For good movie, I, work hard! Let’s work well together!
Same here. I will be looking forward to your guidance.
Lower, hip more. Aim body facing, here.
Ah, arm height, like this. Eyes, that way, look. And do this!
* lashes out *
I see… With this posture, the previous movement will be… like this!
* lashes out *
…Was that correct?
Yes! Kuro, amazing! Pretty stance! Did, do before?
No. I’ve never attempted karate even once before now. I am also surprised to receive such praise.
Oh, really? But Kuro, did just like advice said! So fast at remembering!
Hmm. This could be my experience in tea ceremonies aiding me. There are no textbooks when it comes to tea ceremony practice.
The principle behind it is “learning by watching” as you watch and imitate the teacher’s actions.
As a result, if that is why my movements are precise, that also means your actions are amazing, Pierre-san.
Thank you, Kuro. So happy, getting praise!
Take that! And that! And that!
Kuro-sensei, you’ve been repeating the same movements and nothing else, over and over, for a while now~.
It already looks perfect to me. Is there a part of it that you’re not satisfied with~?
There is. Even if I trace the example with great dedication, that does not amount to me genuinely attaining the skill.
I have to refine all the movements even further until I am able to understand it from head to toe.
No matter what you do, you face everything with all your effort. So diligent~.
It’s not like that. In the first place, I could say that my reason behind doing it is that I have no choice but to do it.
Because when it comes to moving my body, my ability to do so verges on being lacking in skill.
I can only attain it by continuing to repeat the movements candidly such that they are engraved into my muscle memory.
You also put in extra effort when it comes to dance lessons, don’t you~. I guess that’s a part of it too~.
…Ah, I got it. Basically, it’s like that~.
What are you referring to?
Fufu. Watching your approach on things has led me to realize something, too, I guess~.
There is a reference to another event that features a Kuro rank and Sora gacha SR pair. Sora commenting that Kuro puts in extra effort for dance lessons comes from Xmas Live 2017 -Side:Prelude-.
Sei! Hah! Taah!
Awesome! Kuro, gotten stronger! Form is also pretty!
Exactly. Each and all of your forms has great accuracy. I could hardly recognize you doing it.
Thank you very much. Everything was thanks to Pierre-san’s aid.
I’m sure the trainer will be surprised, too. I can’t lose to you, either.
Oh, you’re getting fired up. I’ll keep on drilling you on the foundations again today.
I’ll be in your care. Okay, first, let’s get started with the preliminary exercises.
Kuro, want to join? After you do your karate, I can teach you my self-defense forces fighting techniques too.
After watching you practice with Pierre, I started getting antsy. It might be worth drilling you.
Fufufu. Ah, Producer~. I have a little something to consult with you about~.
Kitamura-san. What were you talking about with Producer just now?
Fufu. It’s the second of Clarke’s laws~. And the answer to your question is coming soon~.
Clarke’s second law: “The only way of discovering the limits of the possible is to venture a little way past them into the impossible.”
Good work, everyone~… Phew, I barely made it in time for the meeting~.
Sora-kun, you’ve been busy recently. Aren’t you a little tired?
Sora, sit on sofa. When tired, rest, and recover. I, bring you drink!
Thank you. Actually, there was something I wanted to do before the filming happened~.
Something you wanted to do…? Is it some sort of lesson?
Yeah. I asked an acquaintance from university to do a little bit of special training~.
They’re vital to me building my role~. It’s stuff like basic chemistry knowledge and how to use tools for experiments~.
I see. An approach you can only take because you’re in university, huh?
A large part of it was that I wanted to learn how to use the experiment equipment before we started filming~.
Was that what you were consulting with Producer about the other day?
I asked them to get in touch with the creative side of things to hear about information on the machinery we’ll be using~.
That’s some amazing diligence there. No one would even think twice that you were aware of your weakness towards that subject.
Fufu. There’s lots I have to memorize, so I’m still struggling, though~.
But “The only way of discovering the limits of the possible… is to venture a little way past them into the impossible,” after all~.
The second of Clarke’s laws, wasn’t it?
You knew it, Kuro-sensei~?
I was interested in the words you said previously, so I looked them up.
I see. But with that being said, I’m currently pursuing my special training in earnest~. The real thing is yet to come, so look forward to it~.
Pierre-san, thank you very much for accompanying me so late.
Hey, on way home, let’s go eat takoyaki! I, stomach grumbly.
“Time to analyze the blood sample… Hmm. It looks like the concentration of adrenaline to be found inside the blood is still high.
At this rate, the level of aggressiveness will be too strong and I won’t be able to use it practically…
Hah! So maybe with this combination, I… No, it didn’t work… Dammit. One more simulation…”
Oh, Kitamura-san. You were here?
Good evening, Sora. Practicing acting, here?
Yeah. I was rehearsing the way I’d use the equipment while looking at the video~.
I thought it’d be good to drop in a few lines from my character while keeping the act in mind, too.
Is that so? I only had a brief glimpse, but you were very much in character as you did so.
Thank you. But I think I still have a ways to go~.
Even if I trace my example, that doesn’t mean I’ve genuinely attained the skill, right~?
I’ll continue to refine myself even more and pin down the Jean-ness perfectly~.
I see. Then, that means your handling of the experiment tools is one of the “forms” you have thought up for it?
You’re the one who made me realize that, Kuro-sensei~. I’m grateful to you~.
Oh, are the three of you also heading into final checks for the filming? You’re all so hardworking to be staying this late.
* stumbling in *
Haah… haah… You too, Seiji-san. You ran twice as fast as I did.
What a coincidence! To think that all of us would be gathered up now.
You seem to be tired, Kamiya-san. Would you like to take a short break now?
Yes, please… Haah… haah… I can’t walk another step…
Yahoo! I, go buy takoyaki! Everyone eat together!
Challenging lessons, / as we drink tea day by day, / the dates flow on by. We’re finally getting started with filming tomorrow, huh~.
I thought it was way ahead in the future when we did our onstage greetings, but time passed in the blink of an eye~.
We read through the script and did the action training as best we could.
I guess it’d be fine to say that we’re perfectly prepared for things.
Thank you for also showing up from time to time for the lessons, Producer.
Lots of snacks, made me happy. Please support, for filming, too!
Phew. I’m confident that we’ll do things well, but when we have it looming in front of us, I can’t help but feel nervous.
Huh? Producer, is it really okay for you to designate this job a huge success when it hasn’t even started yet~?
You say that to us after having watched our training this whole time…
It’s very reassuring. I will be able to focus on the following shoots without misgivings because of you.
…Aah. Could this possibly be something along the lines of “The first law”?
Fufu. Maybe so~.
Clarke’s first law: “When a distinguished but elderly scientist states that something is possible, he is almost certainly right. When he states that something is impossible, he is very probably wrong.”
“What’s the meaning of this!? I can’t get permission for the clinical trial… And what for?”
“Can you resolutely affirm that T-315 is perfect, without flaws? You can’t. That’s the reason.”
“But the secondary effects have disappeared. Even the issue with it feeding off of emotions can also be altered by changing the tolerance level…”
“I will not condone any failures in the ‘Talos Project.’ Permission for the clinical study is denied.”
“I won’t accept this! Give me permission, now…! Hey, CEO! I’m still talking to y—…”
“Please, wait! I can back up Jean’s research results as well.
There are also inhibitors to T-315, and we can deal with the unexpected outside circumstances well enough.”
“Thanks to the help of some helpful burglars, we’ve also finished demonstrating the results of the inhibitors.
So because of that, I’d like to request a test with the improved medicine on those persons…”
“Those guys are already in jail. Are you going to do it in their place, John?”
“Yeek! O-Oh, you kidder, you… I admire superheroes, but I think I’ll refrain from this one…”
“I will do it. I decided on it with Jean a while back. I have no qualms about it.”
“…! No! For now, you have to improve the drug immediately. This is an order.”
“Why do you go so far to be this cautious on this issue? It’s not like you.”
“Is there some other reason that you have no other choice but to do this?”
“…………Just improve the safety of the drug. I have nothing else to say.”
The filming is going well. Kitamura-san’s experimenting scene made it look as if his hands were flowing back and forth.
It’s thanks to you~. I feel like a little bit of the weight’s off my shoulders now~.
But the filming has only just gotten started. We can’t let up, so let’s keep going~.
“Jean, you’re still in the lab? What are you plotting by calling me out here in the dead of night?”
“Sorry about this. I wanted to borrow your help.”
“…Adjusting the machinery? Are you doing some sort of experiment right now? And that drug… it’s—! Jean!”
* backs off *
“You also agreed to the clinical trial, didn’t you? All I’m doing now is advancing the schedule.
If we produce results, that CEO will accept it. You and I will make this project a success!”
“…Do you know what you’re saying? The CEO was acting strangely, but you’re just as odd.
Calm down. Don’t rush the results. Give up for now and wait for permission when it…”
* uses a taser on him *
* collapses *
“You tried to settle things by negotiating… I guess I was right to have prepared a taser gun.
I’m sorry, but you’ll have to cooperate with me. I don’t have any more time left…”
Nice work with that scene, Kuro-sensei~. That was a good fake-fall~.
Thank you for the compliment. I studied demo videos online about taser guns for this.
It was true-to-life. I’ll have to practice that too. I want to add it to my repertoire for when I’m playing around with my niece.
With your niece…? I’d have to say, that seems to be quite the realistic kind of game…
I can do all sorts of ways of being done in. She won’t accept my acting if it’s half-baked, you see.
Hahaha! Leaving that aside, next up is your turn to shine. Go wild with all you’ve got, and make it flashy!
(Voice) “Jean-saaan~! Open up, please~! Jean-saaan~!”
(Voice) “Chief, I understand how you feel, but please calm down a little~!”
“Tch. They already noticed, huh? I have to hurry.
Kenji, you have no need to worry. It’ll definitely be a success. We’re going to be heroes. Kukuku…
This is good. There’s no confusion, no intense fluctuation. The brain waves are also showing changes that are going according to the simulation.”
* The ground rumbles, and flashes of light spark. *
“Haah… haah… haaah…”
“I did it! It’s a success! Hahaha! I finally did it! HAHAHAHA!”
“Hah… haaah… Kuh— uggh… UWOOOOOOOHHH!!”
“Kenji!? Dammit! What’s with these number values…? Impossible! WAAHH—…!!”
* flash of light *
“ Oh my gosh! The explosion-proof door got blown apart! At least he saved me the effort of unlocking the door!”
“B-b-b-but this— Isn’t he going on a rampage!? Oh to the noes, my figurines are…!!”
“Was I too late!? John, hand me the inhibitor! Bill, restrain Kenji with your gadgets!”
“I don’t have my laptop, so I can’t do anything~…!”
“At a time like this…!? Oh, fine. I’ll have to strain my body… C’mon, Doctor Karate!”
* Rich fights Kenji. *
* The ground rumbles. *
“Guh— This is unbelievable! I can’t believe it could also manifest extraordinary strength! This went beyond my expectations…”
* A drug hits Kenji. *
“I-It hit…! The inhibitor was a hit! Kenji-kun, are you hurt…?”
“Ugh… Kuh— G-get away from me! It’s too dangerous for anyone to… get close to me…! UWOOOH!”
* Kenji escapes the lab. *
“D-don’t let him get away… Ugh… Professor… I dragged… even your son into this…”
* Rich collapses. *
Shingen-san, do you have any injuries retained from the intense action scenes?
Haha. No problem. As you see here, I’m perfectly fit as a fiddle. I could go two or three more takes while I’m at it.
Yahoo~! I, also can keep going! Kuro, one more time, go?
N-no, thank you… I’d rather not. If I were to do that, I think I would collapse…
Pierre's Oh my gosh! line was originally written as Holy shit!, which makes for one of the few times an event story was altered after its installment.
“Kenji… I’m sorry… This shouldn’t have happened…”
“Ummsies. Chief, wanna hot dog?”
“John… What do you want? I’m not a chief or anything any longer. I’m just a criminal.
Damn it all. There were no mistakes in my composition. The drug was definitely complete…!”
“With this, your transaction with the army has gone down in flames. Your little sister must be worried, huh?”
“…!? You— Why do you know about that!”
“Ehehe. I’m well-informed. I know basically everything about the lab’s staff members.
For example, the CEO. He’s hired an exceptional agent behind the scenes. Basically, he’s employed a spy.
Plus, Bill-kun is secretly developing gadgets for that same agent.
Oh, and might I add. Chief, you’re leaking data to the army in exchange for your little sister’s medical treatment.
There still isn’t a cure, apparently. The fee for her hospitalization must be one hefty thing. I know.”
“Who… are you…?”
“I was late in my introduction, it seems. My name is ’T’… I’m an agent of the organization known as Phantom.
How would you like to consider coming to our side? We can pay much better than the army if your brains are with us.”
“…I refuse. Like hell I’d let my research be used for crimes. Security! Come get him!”
“Too bad, so sad. That won’t work. Both the camera and microphone have been set up. Underestimating the Phantom is a bad thing to do.”
“Is there no one here!? Dammit! The door won’t open… Hey! Someone, c… GWAH—!?”
* John incapacitates Jean, who collapses. *
“…There’s no way around it, then. I’ll silence you and have you help me out for just one last thing.”
John’s finally revealed his true identity. I’m already looking forward to how the audience will react.
Hmm. Shinonome said before that acting as an antagonist was interesting to do… He’s right. I might start getting hooked on this.
You say that as if you haven’t played a villain before~. I think Felix Han suits those prerequisites far well enough~.
You think? Ahaha. I didn’t really feel that personally. He’s just a refined, dandy guy in my head.
Fufu. If you had such a lack of self-awareness that you could say stuff like that, I guess you’re incredibly suited for villains~.
When John reveals himself to be T, his speech pattern changes from a dinky scientist to a smooth information agent. Fittingly, his pronoun of referring to himself changes from 僕 (“boku,” a more unassuming, polite method) to 私 (“watashi,” which is usually used for males who have a higher regard to themselves).
The character mentioned here is Yukihiro’s Felix Han, from Best Game 2 ~The Crucial Trigger of Destiny~, while Sora’s character in that was Justin Le. Reading/listening to the event may allow you to form your own opinion whether or not he was an antagonist.
“You’re awake? Please wait a moment. I’m finishing my preparations right now.”
“…What are you doing… lining up your figurines…”
“Cute, aren’t they? The angle is most important. …Okay, I got a nice picture.
Are you surprised? There’s a hidden camera set up inside my figurines. See, over here.
I put a lot of ingenuity into things. Actually, it’d be more appropriate to call it struggling.
You see, this lab has such strict security. I can’t even take a piece of candy out of here.
Thanks to that, trying to sneak out the test drug turned into a hot mess, just like a spy movie.”
“…What are you planning to do with me?”
“Well, I dunno. Might just put you in an experimental capsule and put you up for display at a museum or something.”
“…Hmph. That sounds a lot better than making me go crazy and forcing me to climb some skyscraper.”
“Hahaha! That sounds good. I’m looking forward to you making top news tonight.
The headline will be… Ah, yes. Dr. Murdoch… or should I say ‘Mad Dog,’ Howls at the Skyscrapers. Sounds good?
Fufu, I have to stir things up real nice. Let’s see. How about we double the concentration of the drug used on Kenji-kun?”
“…! What’d you say just now…? Kenji… You did that to him… You were the one who…
So YOU meddled with things that time! You did that to Kenji…! You did that to my research!
Damn it all, damn every last thing! When this takes effect, you’re the first one I’m crushing! I’ll destroy you!”
Phew… I guess my scenes as the scientist Jean Murdoch end here for the time being~.
Good work there. And starting now, you’ll be engaging in scuffles as the Mad Dog Jean.
Yep. I’m going to go on even more of a rampage than Kuro-sensei did, as a villain~.
“…Agh… Haah… They’ve cornered me… They don’t seem to be the army…
* He staggers as he continues walking. *
(What’ll I do… The inhibitor has taken a significant effect. I don’t have any strength to fight back now…)
There’s nothing else I can do left… But I can’t just stay quiet here…!”
* The air around him flashes, and someone comes to save Kenji. *
"хорошо. That’s one good Japanese soul you’ve got.
I’m done getting a hold of the situation. Hmph. Those are Phantom’s underlings following you. Pathetic guys.”
“Who are you…?”
“Mister Karate, the boss is waiting for you. Ride this drone. Don’t worry. It’s on autopilot.”
“Is this… Is this all right…? Um— Please don’t push me— UWAAAAHHHHHHH!!”
“…Gaah… Haah… I thought I was dead for sure…”
“The runaway boy’s made his way back home. Good grief. You’re really making me meddle too much.”
“CEO? …I… I deeply apologize… I will most definitely take responsibility for this.”
“If you mean that, then you better stop Jean with your abilities.”
“Stop Jean? What does that mean?”
“We don’t have any time, so I’ll cut to the chase. John— No, Phantom used T-315 on Jean.
And he used an excessive amount. Thanks to that, the guy’s gone crazy and run riot in the streets of New York before disappearing without a trace.”
“That’s terrible! Jean’s… But I… I don’t have any more strength to stop him now…”
“Use the drug one more time and regain your strength. I’m reluctant to make you do it, but you’re the only one who can do it.
I would’ve done it, but there’s a mountain load of tasks that require my attention aside from this.”
“I’ll… have to come into contact with that fear again…”
“Your father… Professor Minamoto stood up to that, too.
It was for the world’s… No— For your sake.
Follow me. I have to tell you the truth behind the Talos Project.”
And here’s where my scenes end. It’s been a while since I acted as Nazarov, so I had fun.
Kyoji, good work! So cool! Excited for completion!
I’m sure the scenes where Nazarov appears were enough to spark joy in the fans as well.
Thanks. You guys better work hard, too. I’m gonna watch it on the release date.
I look forward to it. We will make it a wonderful movie that won’t lose to the likes of Shadow 9.
Same as when Nazarov talked to Shinobu about his Japanese soul in Shadow 9, he calls it his “ﾔﾏﾄｿｳﾙ” (YAMATO SOUL).
“Okay, let’s get started!”
“Before you begin, I’d like to request something. Please give me the same concentration of T-315 as what was administered to Jean.”
“That’s bull. Are you planning to make a second monster run loose in the city?”
“We have no choice but to do that if we wish to hold him back.
Please believe in me. I will most definitely be able to control my power this time.”
“…Yeah, yeah. You got that from your dad. When you set your mind on something, you don’t listen to anything else!
All right, then. I have one condition, though. Don’t die, no matter what.”
* Rich injects the drug into Kenji. *
“Uggh… UUUGGGHHHH… GUOOOOHHH…!”
“Please, Kenji… It’s all up to you.”
* The ground rumbles, and the wall is smashed open. *
“Wha— What’s going on…!?”
“givE me… Hand mE the dRug… T-315! I haVE to… saVe my SiSt… UOOOOHHHH!!”
“Jean! Pipe down, would you!? …Damn. The strengthening hasn’t finished yet!”
“…!! …Ken…ji! You’re tryiNG to HURT Kenji aGAin, AREN’T YOUUUUU!”
“Don’t get in his way!”
* Rich attempts to stop Jean, but he’s affected by the backlash. *
“Guh—…! Wait… I’m not finished yet… I’m not letting you lay a single finger on Kenji.”
* The ground rumbles. *
“Haah… haah… Jean…”
“You made it in time…! Kenji, are you all right? Hey! Can you hear me?”
* They clash. *
It’s time for the final battle~. We’ll have to fire things up the best we can~.
Even behind the scenes of the battle between you two, we’ve got an all-star lineup of appearing characters. It’s sure busy here. Go and excite things with all you have!
We will. Taking care not to get injured, we will strike each other to the utmost of our abilities.
“Hey! Are you trying to destroy the building!? I’m docking the repair bill from your salaries!”
* Kenji leaves the scene and lures Jean out with him. *
“…I guess my words got through in a sense. I’ve left him to you, Kenji.”
* Rich’s phone rings. *
(Voice) “Rich-san, I found John-san! I’m pursuing him right now.”
“Quit it. Your opponent’s a pro at this. Your role here is over. Come back and provide support.”
(Voice) “There’s no need to worry. With my prized gadgets, I’ll… eek!?”
“Bill, what’s wrong!?”
(Voice) “I’ve got quite the zealous fan here, don’t I? But I can’t say I condone stalking.”
(Voice) “I’m so sorry…! He found me! Ah— My laptop’s…!”
(Voice) “If you think of chasing me any further than this, I’ll smash this guy into itty-bitty pieces. Toodle-oo.”
“Damn! Good grief. Making me meddle again…”
(Voice) “Boss. Perfect timing. Right now, I’ve lost contact with Bill.”
“John captured him just now.”
(Voice) “…! I’ll head over to rescue him.”
“No. You keep hindering the army’s movements. Kenji’s close to capturing Jean.
I’ll send the ‘newbie’ that you’ve been talking about to deal with the Phantom.”
(Voice) “I see. He’s the perfect man for the job. Roger that. I will carry out my mission.”
“Phew… I should’ve called my secretary to do this. I’ve never had to make this many calls at once.”
“It’s time to exterminate some ghosts. You ready?”
All right. It’s finally time for me to show off what I’ve got. I’m really looking forward to the next scene.
Me too! Practiced in my head, time and time again! End, practice together?
Good idea. Please, let’s. We can work together and make this the best scene it can be.
“All the necessary data is in place. With this, my job has come to an end.
Though it pains me to do this, you’ll be parting with me here.”
* trembling *
“Oh? You’re shaking, aren’t you. No need to worry. I’ll finish it in an instant.”
“Ooh! …What ideal circumstances I’ve found myself in! I can’t believe I was able to be tested in a scene of actual combat!”
“Don’t try to escape reality. You can’t even do anything without your laptop.”
“Yes, I can do something! Well, not now, but it’s ‘coming’!”
“…? Don’t m—…!”
* A drone shoots John and knocks him back. *
“A-a drone!? It carried your laptop to you…? Kuh…”
“Now the tides have turned! Come on, take a look at the possibilities of the new-model drone army!”
* rushes over at Bill and hangs him off the building. *
“Feh. You really underestimated me, didn’t you. Did you think you could defeat me with toys like that?”
“H-huh…? Huh huh huh!? Isn’t this bad!? Uwawawawa!!”
“It’s checkmate for you! …Wha—!?”
* Something knocks John away from Bill and places him in safety. *
“Jeez, man, don’t go sending chills up my spine. If I weren’t here, you would’ve kicked the bucket, right?
But, I guess these were the ‘ideal circumstances’ and timing for a helper like me to make his grand entrance ♪”
(Voice) “There’s a ninja here with me, too!”
“Phantom, prepare yourself! HAH!”
“It’s hopeless for you, even if you have more people on your side now! Haaah!!”
“Hmph. Then suit yourself. How will fighting 100 people feel like? Wizard! Bill!”
“Yes! Namu Amida Butsu! Huh? Abracadabra? Anyway, here you go! Ninja technique, body split!”
* Multiple Shinobus appear, and John knocks them out as they fade out. *
“…! Holograms, huh? A cowardly tactic… Hah! Tah! …Tch. Where’d the real one go!?”
“Right here! Haaaah!”
* Shinobu punches John, who falls. *
“Ghha—h… Fu… Fufu… But it’s already too late… No one can… stop the Phantom any… longer…”
Good work out there, Kaoru-san. It was perfect. Thank you very much for the help.
I could say the same to you all. Those were movements well-trained by practice. I’m looking forward to the complete movie.
Yahoo! I’m sure, audience, also surprise! We also surprise! Become good movie!
“UGAAAAAHHHH!!! Don’T gET in mY WAAAAYYYYY!”
“What kind of… It’s like a storm. Kenji… don’t get sucked up by your emotions.”
* Jean attacks Kenji. *
(My urge to destroy more and more keeps welling up like magma… At this rate, Jean will lose into it… And everything will be destroyed…)”
“Kenji. Power is used to save others.”
…Control one’s heart. To not let one’s heart be disturbed… For that is the understanding of martial arts… For that is becoming clear and serene as a polished mirror and still water.”
* Jean attempts to attack Kenji, but the latter parries. *
“Jean, I’m going to save you right now! Haaah!!”
* Kenji hits Jean multiple times. *
“Ghaack—…!! Haah… hah… haah… Ugh—“
* The inhibitor is administered, and he collapses. *
“The inhibitor has met its mark. I’m sure his rampage will stop here now.”
“Good grief. Each and every one of my staff members… They’re always making me meddle in their business.
…Jean. Why did you keep quiet about your sister? Why did you depend on someone else when I’m here?
Who do you think I am? I’m Rich Spencer, the super-rich genius!”
“…Um. He means that in the ‘I’ll definitely manufacture a medicine for her, so leave it to me!’ way of things.”
“…Ugh… Uuuh… Uwooh!! …ThaNK yOU, CEO… ThANk You, Kenji…”
“Thank goodness, Jean… I’m also… glad for… you…”
Phew… It’s done~. For some reason, I feel like I’ve burnt myself out~.
Yes. It’s almost as if I’ve used up all the vitality I had in my body.
Ah, Producer! How was, scene back there? Amazing?
Hm? “Clarke’s first law”? Umm, so basically…
Fufu. I guess it was a huge success after all~. Since it’s you saying that, you’re most certainly right~.
“With the birth of these new heroes, the Talos Project will head into its next phase.
Here and now, I announce the establishment of the Earth Protection Agency [PASSION]!”
“Um, I’ve been curious about this for a while, but does Kenji-san have a codename or anything?
See, like Nighthawk or Shadow 9. Is he actually going to be working with his real name?”
“Don’t just change the subject on your own… But if you’re worried about that, it’s already decided. C’mon, Kenji, go and tell them.”
“Yes. Allow me to re-introduce myself, then. I am Kenji Minamoto. My codename is…
“So that’s Earth… It’s a beautiful planet.
The more I look at it, the more I want it for myself.
I wonder what kind of greeting they’ll welcome me with? Kukuku… My blood is boiling!”
Thank you very much for coming to view Rampage today.
A standing ovation! Fufu. The audience’s excitement really came through to us~.
It looks like we were able to answer everyone’s expectations that were carried over from Shadow 9.
Yahoo! Surprise Nazarov, surprised you? Kept secret so long. Wanted to say, but I held back.
Hahaha! I’m sure people were shocked when Kaoru and Kyosuke showed up, too.
I can also hear people saying that they cried when the conclusion happened~. Thank you for that.
This one film brought out all sorts of emotions and became a lovely movie.
I’m also quite relieved that I was able to fulfill the assignment I was tasked with.
Though I may be getting ahead of myself, I am highly convinced that the next installment will be the best as well.
When that time comes, I would be glad if you were to come watch my companions’ skillful actions once again.
