헌팅 래빗 작전-4  헌팅 래빗 작전 (1)

The survey group completed their mission.

FAL How are things on your end, 57?

Five-seven Right on time. Everything is ready here.
The Rabbit's signal has been located. We can make the connection anytime.

Noel ...

FAL All yours, Mademoiselle Noel.

Noel Got it! Leave it to me.

Five-seven Then let's begin...

...

Noel Is this...the Rabbit?

Elphelt ...

Noel Um...hello?

Elphelt ...

Noel ...

FAL ...
Say something else.

Noel Huh? O-Okay.

Elphelt ...

Noel Are you...looking for the "Doll"? Please look at me! Am I the one you're looking for?

Elphelt ...

FAL No response at all. Have we failed?

Noel ...
Something doesn't feel right...

FAL What do you mean?

Noel She seems...a bit different...

Elphelt ...Annihilate...

FAL ...!

Elphelt Elphelt Valentine...
Here to annihilate all unworthy Dolls!

Connection broken...

FAL That was...

BOOM!

FAL Whoa! W-What's that?!

FF FN49 FAL! A surge in Sangvis numbers just ahead!

FAL What?! Where did they come from?!

FF FN49 No idea! It's like they appeared out of thin air! There's no sign of an intrusion from outside!

Five-seven FAL...we have a problem. The facilities in the factory have somehow been reactivated.
The scattered Sangvis units are revived...and their numbers are going up!

FAL Tsk. So we're the ones getting ambushed.
That communication module has always been a trap...

Intruder Finally caught on, eh?

FAL Humph... Not exactly surprising, Intruder.
Though I wonder...how much more foreshadowing have you written into your script?

Intruder No, I'm just a member of the audience myself. It's been quite entertaining how things have developed.
It's just that without a bait, the prey won't fall into the trap.
This is the final hunting ground. I look forward to your last performance...

Connection broken...

FAL We'll see, Intruder.
I'll make you realize...that you've made a mistake with the cast.

Five-seven FAL! The Rabbit is here!

Elphelt Dolls... Annihilate all Dolls...

Noel Has she...already made it this far?!

FAL Mademoiselle Noel, for the sake of us all...
If you want to make it back alive, give it everything you've got.

Noel Roger!
We're all definitely gonna make it back alive!

FAL Let's go, everyone...
This is the final Rabbit Hunt!

...

FF FNC (Pants) Th-That's way too overpowered...

FF FN49 How...could she still be on her feet...?

Elphelt Anni...hilate...all...Dolls...

FAL She seems a bit different from the other Sangvis Dolls...
Doesn't she have..."emotions" of any kind?

Elphelt ...

Noel Different...
Different...?
That's right! She IS different!

FAL What?
I remember you mentioned this before.

Noel She looks different from when I saw her as we passed through the Cauldron!

FAL Hmm?
So she isn't the Rabbit that you saw?

Noel She looks like her, but...
I need further confirmation!
If only...if only I could talk to her in person...

FAL This is not yet the time to meet her. We have to weaken her in order to approach her safely.
Reorganize our assault and keep at it until she makes a slip!

...

FF FNC That...should do it, right?

FF FN49 Is...is it over...?

Noel I'll go and take a look!

FAL Be careful, Noel.

Noel Hey, who the hell are you?

Elphelt ...
You...you are...

Noel ...!
Does she know me?

Elphelt D...Doll...
My...emotions...?
That's right... Valentine's...emotions...
Am...I...
Who...on earth...am I...?

Elphelt ARGHHHHHHHHHH!

Elphelt collapses and becomes still.

FAL ...
Stay put. I'll have a look.

FF FNC B-Be careful...

FAL ...
The neural pathways of her dummy network are cut off. She can't move at all.

Five-seven Dummy network? Then she's...

FAL Oui, just a modified S.F. dummy.
In other words...this isn't her master unit.

Noel That's not her?
S-So, where's the real Elphelt?

FAL If the dummy is here, then the master unit can't be far away...
Launch an immediate search at all suspicious locations nearby!

FF FN49 Understood!

Meanwhile, somewhere in the Sangvis factory...

Intruder So this is how it ends this time?
Nevermind. It's just a toy I picked up anyway...
You did pretty well for an amateur entertainer.
Then...thanks for your hard work. Looks like this is where we part.
Wait for the prince who'll come and wake you...Miss Rabbit.

...

Elphelt ...

Team FF has been searching for a while...

FAL Is the suspicious receptacle you found somewhere around here, 49?

FF FN49 Should be... There it is.

Noel The real...Elphelt...

Five-seven Bien. Leave this to me. I'll deal with it...

Receptacle ...
Authorization...Check...SP914 "Intruder".
Authorization complete.

Five-seven Sorted.

The lid slowly slides open...

...

Elphelt ...

Noel Ah...
This is...

FAL Well? Is this the girl you saw?

Noel Y-Yes! That's her!
She's the Observer that observed me!

Elphelt ...Ugh!

Elphelt Elphelt Valentine, here to annihilate all unworthy Dolls!

Team FF ...! (Raises gun)

Elphelt Hmm?
W-What's going on?!
Why are there so many guns pointed at me?!
Ah, are you humans? I'm really sorry!
That was a line I've been programmed to deliver every time I wake up! Please don't take it seriously!

FAL ...

Noel ...

FF FNC She doesn't seem dangerous.

Elphelt Uh...excuse me...?
What's...going on right now?

FAL (Sighs) This isn't really the place to talk. There could be remaining Sangvis units roaming about.
So...Mademoiselle Elphelt, oui?
Come with us. Rather than you asking us questions, I'm more interested in the answers you can give us...

After Team FF brought Elphelt back to base...

Elphelt That's to say...we've come to a different world together?

Noel Yes.

Elphelt This is certainly not my time, and "Science" is still widely in use here.
It really is a different world.

Noel That's right...
Since you appeared in the Cauldron, you must've come from another dimension as well, right?

Elphelt All I remember...is St. Elmo's Fire striking down...
Then I saw you in an unfamiliar place. I don't remember anything afterwards...

FAL Then you don't remember being used by Sangvis Ferri?

Elphelt I was slumbering the whole time... I don't know anything.

FAL (Sighs) We almost had our butts handed to us because of you...
Well, now we can hardly blame you for it, can we?

Elphelt I'm so sorry! I can't believe I've done such horrible things...

Noel It's not your fault! It's all because of that Sangvis Ferri person! And we're all fine now.

Elphelt Miss Noel... Alright!
Haven't you been looking for me this whole time? I'll do my best to help you in any way I can!

Noel Yeah! I need your power to send us back together!

Five-seven How do you plan on doing that?

Noel The Gate will open as long as an Observer is present.
We have to go back to where we first arrived.

FAL Where the lightning struck?

Noel Yes...that's the entrance as well as the exit.

FAL My days... I'm still having trouble believing this.
Travelers from another dimension...
If I report something like this to Helian, she'll definitely think my neural cloud is fried.
Commander, please do something about the investigation report.

Five-seven Isn't it fantastic, Mademoiselle Noel? You can finally go home.

Noel Miss 57... Indeed. After all, the things that belong to me aren't here.

Elphelt And I have my own mission to fulfill...
Thanks for saving me, everyone.

Five-seven Bien. As a gesture of farewell, we'll escort you one last time...
To where the lightning struck.

Noel and co. arrived at the scene...

Noel Right... If I use the Power of the Eye here...
Lux Sanctus, heed my call! Murakumo Unit, activate!

FF FNC Whoa?!

Noel's form starts changing...

Noel Phew...that seems to have worked.
I was worried I couldn't release this form.

FF FNC M-Magnifique...

FAL Well...NOW I truly believe you're from another dimension.

FF FN49 Incredible...

Elphelt I'm ready here, Miss Noel.

Noel Got it. Please give me a second...

Noel seems to be searching for something in the sky...

Noel Ah! Got it! The Gate!

FF FNC Gate? What gate? I'm not seeing anything...

Noel It's a conceptual object that can only be perceived with my power. Ordinary people can't see it.

FF FNC Okay... Another weird character setup of yours, eh?

Five-seven Thank goodness you weren't captured by S.F.
Otherwise we'd be in big trouble.

FAL Looks like it's time to say goodbye...

Noel Miss Elphelt, please hold on tight.

Elphelt Okay! Gotcha!

Noel Then, thank you so much, my friends from Griffin!

FAL Just don't come with any lightning bolts again.

FF FNC Hmm...
I'm kinda curious about their world. Maybe I should go and have a look?

FF FN49 ...Are you serious?

FF FNC ...Just kidding.

Elphelt Don't worry! Maybe we'll meet again some day!

Five-seven If so, I sincerely hope you'll be on our side.

Elphelt Heheh... If you introduce some nice husband material to me, I'll think about it.

Five-seven Oh...won't you consider girls?
See, I have "ears" just like yours.
If you'll take me as your "husband", I'll shower you with all the romance that you want... ❤

Elphelt With a girl...?!
A-Absolutely not! If we commit such taboo...
Then my femininity... My femininity will...!

Five-seven Heheh. What an amusing response.
It's an acceptable farewell gift.

Noel Finished your goodbyes? Good...
Let's go, Miss Elphelt.

Elphelt O-Okay! Then...

Elphelt See you, my friends!

Noel See you, everyone from Griffin!

FAL Au revoir, travelers.

Noel and Elphelt take to the sky...
And disappear together through a crack in the air...

Five-seven They vanished just like that...
If it weren't for the crater left by the lightning strike, I'd think I was dreaming.

FAL Remember what they said? "See you"...
Who knows? Maybe we WILL meet again.

FF FNC People from the future are so powerful...
They would make pretty good characters in fighting games, wouldn't they?

FF FN49 ...What makes you think that?

FF FNC Eh...I'm not sure either.

Rumbles...

FF FNC ...

FF FNC Hey, I'm hungry. Let's go eat something?

"Operation Rabbit Hunt" - Fin.
