헌팅 래빗 작전-2  인형섬멸 (1)

A week after the Lightning Incident. Griffin Control in Area S09.

FF FNC I see. So you're a soldier too?

Noel Yeah... I'm still trying to wrap my head around what I've heard about things in this world...

FF FNC I thought fashion from the future would be more stylish.

Noel S-Sorry...for disappointing you.
But...do you believe me?

FF FNC It's not like I don't believe you. I just don't really care either way...
Completing our mission is all that matters to us T-Dolls.

Noel T-Dolls...so you really aren't human.
If you're androids, are you equipped with things like rocket fists or thrusters?

FF FNC ...Are your androids equipped with such things?

Noel Hmm... They're more like cyborgs, I guess...

FAL Well, aren't you two getting along well?

FF FNC Oh, FAL. Is it time to eat?

FAL There's some bread, but let's talk about the mission first.
Ever since the Lightning Incident, S.F. has been launching attack after attack in nearby territories.
We've been receiving casualty reports from neighboring regions of Area S09.
Moreover...according to witnesses, there's someone with bunny ears among the Sangvis units.

Noel Bunny ears! C-Could it be...

FAL Unbelievable as it may be, that seems to be the one you were referring to.

Noel It has to be her! If we can find her, I can go back!

FAL At the moment, this bunny girl's motive is unclear...
But she's bothering us with all this trouble she's been stirring up.
Since she's your target as well, we have no choice but to work together.

Noel Fantastic! I have hope of going home!

FAL Sorry, Mademoiselle Noel, but let's not get too excited.
You're still under suspicion yourself, so your freedom is still restricted.

Noel Oh... I'm sorry... I forgot my place...

FAL The report has forecast the possible location of the next Sangvis attack.
Allez, girls, and get the one who's stuffing her face...
Operation Rabbit Hunt is about to begin.

FF FN49 Th-This is Point B... Evacuation of all residents confirmed.

Five-seven Point C also checked. There shouldn't be a problem, I suppose?

FAL Très bien. Now we just have to sit tight and wait for the rabbit to set off the trap...

Intruder Nice setup. Your effort is much appreciated.

FAL Intruder? How could it be you?!

Intruder Forgive me, I can't let you see the Rabbit for now.
But I trust that you won't be too offended if I take part in the show in her place?

FAL Both you and the Rabbit are on our bucket list.
Though it seems like we can strike your name off early.

Intruder Then thank you for your hospitality. Let us make the most of our chance meeting.

Operation in progress.

FAL How are things ahead? Still not done?

FF FNC Non, not time yet! Intruder really is a handful!

FF FN49 All we can do is slightly reduce her strength, but we're far from actually neutralizing her.

Five-seven I suggest we retreat for the time being, FAL. Wait for her supplies to deplete.

FAL Can't be helped. Break it off for now. I'll put together the next round of offensive ASAP!

...

FAL The hunt is over, Intruder.

Intruder That's quite alright. We've gained a lot.
Too bad we haven't been able to find the real "Doll".

FAL The real "Doll"?

Intruder What the Rabbit is looking for...
If she can't find it, then even I won't be able to prevent Dolls' annihilation.

Noel ...

FF FN49 What on earth is your objective?

Intruder Didn't you know? This is just a game.
You're still very far from clearing this stage, so do take your time and enjoy yourselves...

FAL Humph... Your death is the only thing we want to enjoy.

Intruder Then sorry, but I haven't finished the script yet...
Please let my name stay a little longer on your bucket list.

Five-seven Zut! Smoke screen!

FAL ...!
You think you can escape using such a cheap trick?!



Team FF focuses their firepower...

FF FN49 Sigh... She escaped after all.

FAL Tsk! Right under my nose.

FF FNC Looks like...we won't return empty-handed.

FAL ...?

FF FNC She seemed to have dropped this while running away... (Hands over)

FAL This...looks like...
(Chuckles)

FF FNC W-What is it?

FAL Humph... I think we're gonna meet again very soon, Intruder.

Back at Griffin Control after the operation...

Five-seven The Rabbit seems quite closely related to Sangvis Ferri.

FF FNC FAL has already reported the evidence. We'll hear from them in no time.

Noel ...

Five-seven Is something wrong, Mademoiselle Noel?

Noel Oh! Sorry. U-Umm...I was just thinking...
"The real Doll"... Could that be me?

Five-seven ...You're a Doll?

Noel How should I put it...? In a manner of speaking... I guess I am...
Of course, I'm not entirely sure...
Whether I'm the "Doll" that the Rabbit is looking for...

Five-seven That's to say you're the cause of all the trouble we've been having?

Noel Eep! I'm sorry! It's all my fault...

Five-seven Exactement. It's all thanks to a weirdo like you that we're working our butts off.

Noel (Whimpers) This awful feeling...of being blamed...
Seems pretty familiar...

FF FNC Well... You don't have to put it that way...

Noel Hmm?

FF FNC Noel appeared as the lightning struck, right?
If it hadn't been for the lightning, Intruder could have done us in right then and there...
Perhaps...Noel saved us.

Noel (Sobs) I-I'm so touched!
You're so nice, FF FNC! (Hugs)

FF FNC Ack! L-Let go! You're...squeezing too hard!

FAL ...We'll have to deal with this problem sooner or later.
If the Rabbit is after Noel, that makes our job easier.

Five-seven Oh, there you are.

FAL The result is out. That thing really is Intruder's communication module.
It's receiving a signal from a certain location, though the precise source is still unknown...
It does resemble the Rabbit's signal that we had detected before.

Five-seven Bien! That's good news.

FAL It's too early to celebrate, 57.
According to our surveillance, the signal is currently at an abandoned Sangvis factory up north. The factory has been inspected in the past.
Other than a sparse amount of Sangvis units wandering around, it is largely deserted.
Why would a clue be sitting at that sort of place... I have a bad feeling about this.

Noel Should we take the initiative this time?

FAL It's necessary to reinvestigate the site. Also...
Mademoiselle Noel, it's time you made yourself useful.

Noel Huh?

FAL If the Rabbit doesn't want to leave her hole...

FAL Then we'll give her a "carrot".
