Who the fuck is Clover?

Sorry. I'll be quiet now.

Listen in: [English/Japanese]

(What's going on here? Do these two know each other?)

She was like that when I woke up.
I really wouldn't worry, though. She should be all right.
Her breathing is steady. I believe she's only sleeping.

Then she hasn't woken up since they kidnapped her.

Ah... kidnapped?
Begging your pardon, but... I'm afraid I don't understand what you mean.
...Where are we? And... who are you?

How about you tell us who you are first.
You leap out of that box dressed like some kinda robot, carrying an unconscious girl, and we've only got your word that you didn't make her that way. I think you owe us an explanation, pal!

Listen in: [English/Japanese]


I don't remember. I don't remember... anything.
I have no idea where I am, who I am, or even what day it is.

If you happen to know any of those things, I would very much appreciate it if you shared that information.
Not knowing one's identity is... vexing.

How are we supposed to take you seriously when you're wearing this... this... this robot suit! We can't even see your face!
Are you going to tell us someone forced you into that thing?

I assume so? It seems the most reasonable explanation.
When I woke up, I was wearing this... armor, I suppose you could call it?

You look pretty calm for a man who doesn't know who he is.

"Look"? That's an odd choice of words.
I'm wearing a mask. How would you know how I "look"?

Our amnesiac robot friend here is voiced by Travis Willingham in English and Daisuke Ono in Japanese. Travis Willingham mostly does anime dubs - he's Roy Mustang in Full Metal Alchemist, Portgas D. Ace in One Piece, and Zetsu in Naruto Shippuden - although you might also know him as the current voice of Knuckles in Sonic. He's also married to Laura Bailey. Daisuke Ono's breakout role was Itsuki Koizumi in The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, and since then he's been Shizuo Heiwajima in Durarara!!, Jotaro Kujo in JoJo's Bizzare Adventure, and Sebastian Michaelis in Kuroshitsuji.

Oh! She's waking up!

[Music fades out]

Al... ice...
Where... are we...?

VLR OST: [Placidity]

Listen in: [English/Japanese]

No... no, that can't...

Clover is voiced by Wendee Lee in English and Yukari Tamura in Japanese.

Yukari Tamura got famous as both the voice of Nanoha Takamachi in Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha and the author and artist of its adaptations' theme songs - plus she's been Suzuha Amane in Steins;Gate and Bernkastel in Umineko (game and animation both in both cases).

When? That's a difficult question...
I suppose... when I was born? I don't remember anything of my life. Assuming I had one...

Listen in: [English/Japanese]

It's a type of memory loss.
People affected by it retain knowledge like... language, social common sense, memorized facts, abilities they've learned...
...But anything that has to do with, um, themselves, is just... lost. It's a very serious condition.
Most research suggests that it's mainly psychological, not physiological, but in very rare instances it has been shown to result from severe head trauma.

Do you have any idea what might have caused it?

Maybe I had a really bad breakup? Ha ha ha...

Listen in: [English/Japanese]

This guy's obviously full of it!
Don't tell me you're actually buying this?!

Listen in: [English/Japanese]

Didn't I tell you that?

Yeah, well, I just thought...

There's a box here. Maybe it's some sort of locking thing, like the ones next to the elevators?


Hey... what do you think that is?


That graffiti over there.
See? On the wall.

"Two milkmen go comedy." I'm... not sure what that's supposed to mean.

Maybe it's saying that a pair of milkmen decided to become comedians?
Still just kinda sounds like nonsense, though...

I think it's somebody's way of saying hello.

Uh... what?

You heard me.

Yeah, I did, I just... What the hell was that supposed to mean?

An Anna-Gram?

You've never heard of an anagram?

It's a kind of, um, wordplay where you move the letters around to create something else. Right?

Exactly... Watch.

Oh... okay.
If you switch it around... Yeah, that makes sense. Huh...

Mm. Exactly.

Seems like somebody was expecting us, doesn't it?

Yeah, but...

Where are they?
Pretty rude to invite somebody over and not even offer them a drink.

[Music fades out]

He he he... Eee he he he he he he he...
Eee he he he he he he he he he he...


Look! Over there!

VLR OST: [Eeriness]

You can't say what I'm about to say before I say it.


I've got a plan, you know. I can't just tell you everything at once.

Athough things are starting to get exciting...
