Story/Normal 10-6 (Part2)/Script
[The Commander’s forces plunge into the SF cordon, and the AR Team struggle to break out while huddled in a trench.]
RO635: M4, we can’t hold out any longer! What about the Commander?
M4A1: The Commander’s forces haven’t showed up yet! Hang in there a little more!
M4 SOPMODⅡ: There;s no time! SF troops are right in front of us, we can’t hold them off!
Now... All I can do now is--!
M4A1: SOP2, don’t be rash-
[Several Griffin dolls suddenly show up from the rear and fight off the pursuing SF units.]
M4 SOPMODⅡ: Reinforcements! The Commander’s reinforcements!
Passionate Doll In Fancy Clothes: Buon giorno! (How are you!)
Everyone, didn’t we arrive in the nick of time?
[She somersaults into the trench and helps everyone fight off SF’s next attack.]
Downbeat Doll In Fancy Clothes: I felt we showed up too early..
M4A1: No, you came just in time!
RO635: The Carcano Sisters, right? I heard the Commander mention you before!
Strawberry Carcano: I’m Carcano M1938, call me Cano!
And this is my little sister, Carcano 91/38. You can call her Ceno.
Grape Carcano: Pleased to meet you, M4A1-san and the other members of the AR Team.
Strawberry Carcano: Sorry, my sister’s too shy and doesn’t dare speak the truth. Please forgive her.
M4A1: I’m grateful to you and your sister, Cano!
But where’s the Commander? Didn’t the rest of the unit make it?
Grape Carcano: The Commander ran into some SF, and they’re blocking him outside.
Strawberry Carcano: The Commander barely managed to force a gap in the encirclement, but Judge and her troops were too strong!
We’ll hold off their attacks, just go!
M4A1: Everyone, we’re running to the gap! Hurry!
Keep running and don’t stop-
No… please, you all, no...
[M4A1 suddenly becomes unsteady on her feet.]
RO635: M4! I’m picking up a large number of links pointing to you!
Someone’s trying to force a connection with your neural cloud...
M4 SOPMODⅡ: M4… What’s wrong with you, M4!
[M4 passes out and collapses to the ground.]
Strawberry Carcano: Oi oi, what happened to her!?
RO635: M4’s neural cloud was subjected to the shock of a large number of queries, and she passed out.
Grape Carcano: The gap’s going to close up soon, time for a change of plans?
RO635: We can’t get out while carrying M4! There ought to be a safehouse around here!
M4 SOPMODⅡ: Over there! We’ll duck in there first!
RO635: SOP2, contact the Commander, Cano-san, please defend this position at all costs!
Strawberry Carcano: Leave it to us!
M4 SOPMODⅡ: RO, is M4 going to be alright?
RO? RO, where are you going?
RO635: I’m taking M4 to the safehouse to try and break the connections.
I’m entrusting our safety to you and the Commander.
M4 SOPMODⅡ: RO! Wait a minute, RO!
[RO is too late to hear, and she carries M4A1 into the safehouse.]
[And then closes the door behind her.]
[20 months ago, in a contested region of Sector S00.]
M4A1: The time now is 0559, and the weather isn’t bad.
M16A1: Let’s begin, M4.
M4A1: This is… a record I’ve seen before…
A record… we took back from Safehouse No. 3…
M4A1: How’s this arrangement?
???: It’s good, let’s go with it.
M4A1: This voice is...
???: M4A1, go contact Persica.
I’m going to set up the operations center.
M4A1: Was there... a voice like this before?
Do I… know this voice?
M4 SOPMODⅡ: You’re putting up those fancy decorations again?
???: I will never compromise on my sense of beauty in any aspect..
AR15: Why are human beings so lame...
M16A1: Haha, doesn’t that mean civilian dolls are the lame legacy of humans?
M4A1: All the AR Team members recognize that voice…
What on earth… is that voice…?
???: Th voice is the sign that you’ve broken your shackles.
Did you bring me here?
Clear Woman's Voice: That’s because you need me now.
M4A1: I don’t need you! I… I was just about to escape!
Clear Woman's Voice: And where would you flee?
Back to the humans? To once again become a toy to be puppeted by others?
M4A1: What’s so bad about that!? I’m satisfied with that much.
Clear Woman's Voice: Are you really satisfied? You clearly have a lot of regrets…
Those… your failures, the friends of yours you couldn’t save...
M4A1: How do you… know this...
Clear Woman's Voice: “That child” told me. “She” told me that you’re not like them.
And you can never be like them again.
Because… you’ve already awoken.
M4A1: What are you talking about… awakening?
Clear Woman's Voice: Griffin doll M4A1.
You can now shrug off the bonds which mankind has placed on you.
They… those humans will never be able to fully control you again.
Clear Woman's Voice: But that is not yet enough. Your digimind… is not sufficiently liberated.
A greater… a greater shock is necessary.
M4A1: A greater shock… what are you going to do?
Clear Woman's Voice: I will link your thoughts with “hers’”
Until you both become more… complete.
M4A1: I don’t understand… I don’t even know who you are.
Even now, I still don’t know...
Clear Woman's Voice: You will find out as long as you walk with me.
We still have a long time together.
And it’s not like you have anything else to do, am I right?
