[00:08] ---
    So, what kind of research are
    they doing here to have thieves break in?
[00:14] ---
    Atmospheric continuum mechanics.
[00:22] ---
    What is that, exactly?
[00:24] ---
    This is a research facility for a company
    that compresses air and sells it.
[00:33] ---
    You mean like oxygen tanks?
    What would anyone be after here?
[00:53] ---
    Are you all right? What happened here?
[00:58] ---
    What the...? These are no ordinary thieves.
[01:04] ---
    Get back!
[01:19] ---
    What was that?
[01:23] ---
    It's frozen? Someone's ability?
[01:26] ---
    No...
[01:27] ---
    Hey!
[01:31] ---
    They cut up the floor.
[01:33] ---
    Did they connect with the subways?
[01:37] ---
    They got away.
[01:47] ---
    --Good morning!
    --Good morning!
[02:01] ---
    Early this morning,
[02:02] ---
    the atmospheric continuum mechanics
    research facility in School District 4
[02:06] ---
    was broken into, and experimental
    equipment was stolen.
[02:16] ---
    Tch.
[02:49] ---
    "#01 Accelerator
    (Academy City's Mightiest Esper)"
[03:04] ---
    "There you are!
[03:05] ---
    You can't be outside when
    it's well past your checkup time!"
[03:10] ---
    says Misaka Misaka, criticizing you.
[03:14] ---
    "What's more, today's the big day
    when your head bandages come off,"
[03:19] ---
    says Misaka Misaka--
[03:20] ---
    This isn't a holiday or anything like it.
[03:23] ---
    Huh?!
[03:27] ---
    "It is a holiday! It is a holiday!
[03:30] ---
    A holiday! A holiday!
    A precious, important, not-to-be-missed,
[03:35] ---
    significant, momentous day to remember!"
[03:37] ---
    asserts Misaka Misaka in a loud voice!
[03:40] ---
    Yeah, all right, all right.
[03:42] ---
    Holiday! Holiday! Holiday! Holiday! Holiday!
[03:50] ---
    Hmm, your wound is just about all closed up.
[03:53] ---
    You don't need the bandages anymore.
[03:55] ---
    Now, next up,
[03:57] ---
    I have to do a simple examination.
[03:59] ---
    Don't need one.
[04:01] ---
    That bullet to your head
    has caused some brain damage.
[04:05] ---
    It will have mainly affected your
    speech, numerical, and motor skills.
[04:11] ---
    But there is still a lot we
    don't know about the brain.
[04:15] ---
    Under certain circumstances,
    this could prove life-threatening to you.
[04:19] ---
    Are you threatening me?
[04:21] ---
    I just want to provide the
    best care for my patient that I can.
[04:25] ---
    Tch.
[04:28] ---
    What is your name and background?
[04:30] ---
    Accelerator.
[04:32] ---
    Once first-ranked among seven
    Level 5 espers in Academy City.
[04:38] ---
    My ability is controlling all vectors,
    like momentum, heat, and electricity.
[04:43] ---
    At one time, I took part
    in Project Level 6 Shift, and,
[04:46] ---
    as a result, I have to rely on this piece
    of junk to be able to walk and talk right,
[04:53] ---
    ending up a basket case, which
    brings us up to today. That about cover it?
[04:57] ---
    Hmm, no problems there, I'd say.
[05:03] ---
    Nice sense of sarcasm you got there.
[05:08] ---
    Ah, some other Misakas!
[05:12] ---
    What is the matter, Last Order?
[05:14] ---
    "Is the bandage-removal-celebration
    party coming along okay?"
[05:18] ---
    verifies Misaka Misaka,
    unable to contain her eager heart.
[05:23] ---
    "Readiness status is relayed among us
    clones via the Misaka Network,"
[05:28] ---
    says Misaka, expressing some doubt.
[05:31] ---
    "I know that, but this is my first
    time throwing a party for someone,
[05:36] ---
    so I can't help but check,"
    says Misaka Misaka...
[05:40] ---
    After all, today is--
[05:44] ---
    Huh? What are you doing?
[05:47] ---
    Nuh'ing.
[05:58] ---
    Antiskill. I need to see whoever's
    in charge of the hospital.
[06:02] ---
    O-Okay.
[06:09] ---
    If you all, who keep Academy City safe,
    show up in full tactical gear,
[06:13] ---
    can I assume you aren't here for a checkup?
[06:15] ---
    I'd feel a lot better if we were.
[06:17] ---
    How's the chest wound coming along?
[06:20] ---
    Coming to visit a sick friend
    while you're at it? I'm coming along fine.
[06:23] ---
    So, what's happened?
[06:27] ---
    Early this morning, a research lab
    in School District 4 was hit by thieves.
[06:32] ---
    Apparently, it's a facility
    that researches air,
[06:35] ---
    but behind the scenes, they were
    also developing a secret weapon.
[06:38] ---
    That's what got stolen.
[06:40] ---
    A secret weapon?
[06:42] ---
    The facility has declined
    to provide us with any specific data.
[06:46] ---
    If they can refuse to share
    information with Antiskill,
[06:50] ---
    they must be involved
    with the governing board.
[06:52] ---
    Yeah, they must be.
[06:54] ---
    From what I've seen,
    it's something like a water cutter,
[06:57] ---
    which can slice through just about anything.
[06:59] ---
    So, how are the thieves who stole
    this secret weapon connected to this place?
[07:04] ---
    After checking into
    similar research in the database,
[07:07] ---
    it seems that the stolen secret weapon
    is for use against Accelerator.
[07:13] ---
    Indeed, that's something
    I'll bet the governing board would want.
[07:18] ---
    This all means that the thieves
    who have this secret weapon
[07:21] ---
    are probably coming here, aren't they?
[07:23] ---
    My read is that it's a good possibility.
[07:26] ---
    Still,
[07:28] ---
    your numbers are pretty small
    if you mean to intercept them here, huh?
[07:32] ---
    When news reached the VIPs
    that a secret weapon had been stolen,
[07:36] ---
    they started carrying on
    about being the targets,
[07:38] ---
    and are monopolizing most of our personnel.
[07:41] ---
    More worried about themselves
    than some hospital?
[07:43] ---
    That's some prize-winning corruption.
    I wish they would go over there.
[07:47] ---
    Listen up, Accelerator!
    It's time for your radical operation!
[07:57] ---
    Sounds like they're here.
[07:58] ---
    Ito!
[08:02] ---
    Excuse me, but could you
    call Accelerator down for me?
[08:06] ---
    I know he's here.
[08:09] ---
    I'm afraid we can't honor that request.
[08:10] ---
    Put down the weapon
    and surrender yourselves at once.
[08:13] ---
    By the book, huh?
    Oh well. If you won't page him...
[08:20] ---
    ...I'll just have to...
[08:22] ---
    ...do it myself!
[08:29] ---
    Fire!
[08:36] ---
    Everyone, fall back!
[08:38] ---
    --Emergency! Emergency!
    Armed intruders in the hospital!
[08:42] ---
    --Why aren't you taking shelter?
    --Emergency! Emergency!
    Armed intruders in the hospital!
[08:43] ---
    --Why aren't you taking shelter?
    --All patients, please follow staff
    instructions and take immediate shelter!
[08:43] ---
    --You hear the announcement, right?
    --All patients, please follow staff
    instructions and take immediate shelter!
[08:45] ---
    --So what if I do?
    --All patients, please follow staff
    instructions and take immediate shelter!
[08:47] ---
    --These thieves are apparently after you.
    --All patients, please follow staff
    instructions and take immediate shelter!
[08:49] ---
    They stole a secret weapon that's
    being developed with you in mind.
[08:53] ---
    Oh, they did?
[08:55] ---
    Then again, while you're still probably okay,
[08:59] ---
    they're likely to turn the
    whole hospital upside down, so...
[09:02] ---
    Huh?!
[09:04] ---
    "If they turn the hospital upside down,
    that includes the kitchen, right?"
[09:08] ---
    says Misaka Misaka,
    running off to ensure the ca--
[09:11] ---
    to ensure that they are moved to safety.
[09:14] ---
    Hey!
[09:16] ---
    I'll keep Last Order safe.
    You hurry up and get out of here.
[09:23] ---
    Tch.
[09:31] ---
    Oh, Accelerator!
[09:37] ---
    Look, that won't work.
[09:40] ---
    Damn, being that bulletproof and
    with a blade that sharp, what do we do?
[09:46] ---
    They're coming through!
[09:53] ---
    Come on, where's Accelerator?
[10:00] ---
    Tch.
[10:04] ---
    Hiro.
[10:11] ---
    Okay, what will it be?
[10:13] ---
    Yomikawa...
[10:15] ---
    What is it?
[10:16] ---
    That man behind the armed girl--
[10:18] ---
    it looks like he's the one carrying
    the magazines for that weapon.
[10:22] ---
    What if we went after him,
    and then push her to use up her ammo?
[10:26] ---
    Not bad. But who are they?
[10:29] ---
    I've determined the culprits' identities.
[10:31] ---
    Takata Yoko.
[10:32] ---
    Kidera Minori.
[10:34] ---
    Nakahara Hiromi.
    All three are high school students.
[10:39] ---
    They're just children, all right.
[10:41] ---
    Which means you don't want to shoot them.
[10:43] ---
    That's that, then.
[10:48] ---
    It's not my way to point guns at children.
[10:50] ---
    Huh? You're radical. So, what will you do?
[10:54] ---
    I'm just gonna do this!
[10:56] ---
    Radical!
[11:12] ---
    Well, aren't you radical?
[11:17] ---
    No killing.
[11:20] ---
    Tch.
[11:22] ---
    "I went through trial and tribulation
    all morning to make these,
[11:22] ---
    "Kitchen"
[11:25] ---
    and here are the fruits of my labor.
[11:28] ---
    I can't afford to lose these,"
    mutters Misaka Misaka to herself.
[11:33] ---
    Are they really that important?
    Is this some kind of holiday?
[11:38] ---
    Yes, today is an important day. It's his...
[11:44] ---
    So...
[11:45] ---
    Okay, let's take that and get to shelter.
[11:48] ---
    What about him?
[11:50] ---
    I'm sure he's already gotten out.
[11:51] ---
    "You told him to run away?"
    questions Misaka Misaka.
[11:56] ---
    Yes.
[11:57] ---
    "That might have the opposite effect,"
    says Misaka Misaka, worried about him.
[12:06] ---
    Are you okay?
[12:08] ---
    I'm fine.
[12:09] ---
    Hey, fall back! We have to regroup.
[12:12] ---
    What? You're falling back again?
[12:15] ---
    Hey, can't you mess with their density?
[12:18] ---
    N-No, my ability only has
    a range of about three meters.
[12:23] ---
    That's seriously lame.
[12:24] ---
    Sorry.
[12:28] ---
    Yomikawa!
[12:30] ---
    We can't go any farther.
[12:41] ---
    We can't fall back any longer.
[12:44] ---
    What's that? You're not falling back again?
[12:47] ---
    Does that mean you're
    all ready to get carved up?
[12:51] ---
    Ito, Takahashi,
    we'll take all three of them together.
[12:55] ---
    What are you nattering on about?
[12:58] ---
    The plan is for all three of us to go,
    and whoever isn't cut up stops her?
[13:03] ---
    Then it doesn't matter
    which one of us she goes after.
[13:07] ---
    What was that?! How radical!
[13:09] ---
    I can slice through all
    three of you, no problem!
[13:20] ---
    Hiro!
[13:23] ---
    Damn, man.
[13:27] ---
    You keep raising a racket right next
    to my bedroom. Knock it off!
[13:36] ---
    I get it. You must be Accelerator, right?
[13:40] ---
    Are you the one who's
    trying to pick a fight with me?
[13:44] ---
    If you can break through a wall
    to come at me, you're pretty radical, huh?
[13:49] ---
    I've been anxious to meet you!
[13:57] ---
    Doesn't look like defeating
    you is going to be that simple.
[14:00] ---
    Looks like defeating you
    is gonna be that simple.
[14:04] ---
    "Ah, there you are!
[14:06] ---
    I was worried that you didn't
    get away, and went off to fight,"
[14:10] ---
    says Misaka Misaka, sounding
    like she's your guardian for once.
[14:15] ---
    Wait!
[14:21] ---
    Tch.
[14:27] ---
    "That startled me.
    I wasn't expecting the ceiling to collapse,"
[14:30] ---
    says Misaka Misaka, unable to
    conceal her shaking from this surprise.
[14:36] ---
    You're hurt. Did you get hit by the rubble?
[14:39] ---
    Nothing hit me.
    I haven't had any action in a while,
[14:42] ---
    and my wound opened back up, that's all.
[14:44] ---
    Yes! That's blood!
[14:47] ---
    Ah! N-No! H-Huh...?
[14:50] ---
    Don't take me so lightly.
[14:53] ---
    Maybe I should take a little bit
    more genetic material with me!
[14:57] ---
    Don't do it, Yo!
    You don't have to take things this far!
[15:01] ---
    Tch.
[15:02] ---
    Well, radical. Let's go.
    Take one of Hiro's magazines.
[15:06] ---
    Huh? We're leaving Hiro here?
[15:09] ---
    Don't talk back, just do it, Kidera.
[15:14] ---
    S-Sorry.
[15:15] ---
    Let's go.
[15:21] ---
    They got away. Check our status.
[15:24] ---
    The children are all clear.
[15:26] ---
    Good. Secure the boy.
[15:28] ---
    --Anyone who can keep up,
    we're going after them.
[15:29] ---
    --What was that bag?
    --Anyone who can keep up,
    we're going after them.
[15:30] ---
    --It's...
    --Yes, ma'am.
[15:31] ---
    --Huh?
    --Yes, ma'am.
[15:32] ---
    Never mind about the bag,
[15:35] ---
    Misaka Misaka is more
    worried about your injury.
[15:38] ---
    Tch.
[15:41] ---
    Damn it, what's the use?
[15:44] ---
    If you're going after
    them, we'll take my car.
[15:46] ---
    Don't need it.
[15:47] ---
    Shouldn't you preserve
    your battery as much as you can?
[15:51] ---
    Can you even drive?
[15:53] ---
    You took a gunshot to the chest,
    and your bandages aren't even off yet.
[15:57] ---
    If I rupture a blood vessel,
    will you reconnect it for me?
[16:01] ---
    Not on your life.
[16:07] ---
    You really do go to great
    lengths for that girl.
[16:10] ---
    I just can't stand having those
    punks getting the better of me.
[16:13] ---
    They did get away
    with your genetic data, too.
[16:16] ---
    She really does think the world of you.
    That's why she spent so much time--
[16:21] ---
    Huh?
[16:22] ---
    Anyhow, where should we go?
[16:25] ---
    Standard villain theory says
    that they'll first go underground,
[16:28] ---
    to avoid any satellite surveillance.
[16:30] ---
    "School District 7
    underground drainage channel"
[16:30] ---
    There's an underground sewer near here.
[16:33] ---
    Then that's the place.
[16:35] ---
    Underground again.
[16:36] ---
    Let's look for another entrance.
[16:43] ---
    Listen, Yo...
[16:45] ---
    Huh?
[16:47] ---
    Do you think they caught Hiro?
[16:49] ---
    Ugh, are you still on that?
[16:52] ---
    If you're that concerned,
    why don't you go help him on your own?
[16:54] ---
    I couldn't.
[16:56] ---
    That stuff you're carrying is
    radical first-ranked genetic data.
[17:02] ---
    We take that to the right lab and
    play our cards right, and we're billionaires.
[17:07] ---
    Once we have that, we'll think
    of some backdoor way to rescue Hiro.
[17:11] ---
    But first, we have to make
    a clean getaway, right?
[17:14] ---
    Then why are you doing that?
[17:17] ---
    I want to make sure
    we give any pursuers the slip.
[17:20] ---
    Or did you really think we can get
    away clean with you along, slowpoke?
[17:24] ---
    Then why not just bring
    an end to everything right here?
[17:29] ---
    What are you talking about?
[17:31] ---
    You can't even get close to me.
[17:43] ---
    Super-radical! That was way beyond radical!
[17:51] ---
    Radical! How are you not hurt?!
[17:54] ---
    Disappointed, are you?
[17:57] ---
    The cat's out of the bag about your weapon.
[18:00] ---
    Nitrogen, right?
    That last explosion employed nitrogen,
[18:05] ---
    which turns solid at
    anything under -210 degrees.
[18:07] ---
    So your little toy is actually
    an ultra-high-pressure water cutter,
[18:12] ---
    which uses the melting of solid nitrogen.
[18:15] ---
    But the clincher is using the
    unseen nitrogen that gets spread about
[18:20] ---
    to deprive anyone
    who gets too close of oxygen.
[18:22] ---
    Get your filthy hand off of me.
[18:24] ---
    You got it!
[18:28] ---
    I'm surprised you thought
    you could get at me with such a trinket.
[18:33] ---
    Now then, how come you guys,
    who are standing in the middle of the nitrogen
[18:36] ---
    don't get deprived of oxygen?
    It's because of you,
[18:40] ---
    someone who's way too unsteady
    to just be carrying the goods.
[18:43] ---
    You're able to control
    the concentration of gases in the air--
[18:47] ---
    something of an aero-separator, right?
[18:49] ---
    You maintain enough breathable
    air around you and your pals.
[18:53] ---
    But now that I know about it, you're done.
[18:56] ---
    You see, my ability
    to manipulate any kind of vector
[18:59] ---
    is upwardly compatible to yours!
[19:08] ---
    I've now revealed all your tricks.
[19:12] ---
    Fine, just let us have your genetic data.
    Don't be so stingy!
[19:18] ---
    Don't even bother.
    I'm not like that preachy Level 0.
[19:22] ---
    If you want to keep going,
    I won't hold back anymore.
[19:25] ---
    Your blood will be mine!!
[19:30] ---
    Radical!
[19:37] ---
    Yo!
[19:39] ---
    Well? Do you want to still keep going?
[19:41] ---
    No! You're going to kill Yo!
[19:44] ---
    If you want to keep fighting,
    I-I'll take you on.
[19:49] ---
    Huh?
[19:55] ---
    Tch.
[20:01] ---
    If she's so important to you
    that you'd risk your life,
[20:04] ---
    you should have stopped
    her before she did all of this.
[20:12] ---
    Earlier today, at around noon,
[20:13] ---
    the trio who attacked a hospital
    in School District 7 were arrested.
[20:17] ---
    --The three suspects in this case
    also stole a weapon under development
[20:17] ---
    --"Ah! Thank you!" declares
    Misaka Misaka, full of gratitude!
[20:20] ---
    --from an atmospheric continuum
    mechanics research facility...
[20:20] ---
    --"Ah! Thank you!" declares
    Misaka Misaka, full of gratitude!
[20:21] ---
    --from an atmospheric continuum
    mechanics research facility...
[20:21] ---
    --Shut up.
[20:23] ---
    "Huh?" says Misaka Misaka,
    making her discontent known.
[20:27] ---
    So, what is that, exactly, anyway?

    "If you really want to know,
    I would be willing to reveal it to you,"

    her games and giving this to you!

    and not worrying about spoiling anything!
