VLR OST: [Anxiousness]

According to these readings, he's in a very deep sleep.


What about the anesthetic? How long will it last?

He shouldn't wake up for a few hours.

I think that might be the virus's fault.

Yeah? How do you know?

H-Huh? Oh, um, well...

How much do you know about this Radical-6?

O-Oh, not much.

All I've seen about it is that newspaper article Sigma showed me.

You better not be lying.

Why would I lie about that?
I've seen other viruses that do the same thing. I was just making a guess...


Yes. At least, I think so.

So what kind of virus is Radical-6?

Listen in: [English/Japanese]

Look at this last line.
"Immediate quarantine of any infected patients is strongly advised."

I already explained this. That's not possible.

Why not?

But the virus is clearly real.

So? Do you know how that thing works? I bet there's a thousand ways to hack it.
Zero Sr. probably just programmed it so that it would spit out whatever he wanted.

Have any of you guys heard anything about any sort of viral pandemic?

Well, no... but...


What did you say?

Whoa whoa whoa! Alice, what the hell? Explain.

As much as I would love to, I'm sorry.
Time's up.


Hit the buttons on your bracelet.

Then we only have five minutes until the Chromatic Doors open downstairs.


As if you'd tell us even if there was time, right?


Right now we need to get to the elevator and head down to floor B.

What are we going to do about Quark?

Are you sure?

I can't just leave the boy here.
Besides, if we don't have Quark's bracelet, there'll be one team who can't open their secondary door.
If that happens...

...They'll get penalized.


I will carry Quark.
I will be able to move much faster than Tenmyouji.

Hn. You make a good point.
Look... are you sure about this? Can I trust you?

Fine. Just... be careful.

Of course.

[Music fades out]

We're running out of time here, people! Move!

VLR OST: [Strain]

At Phi's command we all began to run.
The door opened and we spilled out into the warehouse.

I don't know why they ran into the warehouse considering that's the opposite way from the elevator but whatever.

Also the bleeping dot clearly shows them not heading for the warehouse.

Chromatic Doors have opened.
Five minutes remain until Chromatic Doors close.

Listen in: [English/Japanese]

Who's going to go in which door?

Uh... What are our options?

We're almost out of time. Pay attention, we've only got time to do this once.
Just like before, there are only three possible combinations.

Three minutes remain until Chromatic Doors close.

I think the people who have the greatest disadvantage should get to choose.

What do you mean?

The people who have 1 BP.

So you, Phi, Luna, and Sigma?

Yes, exactly.

All right then. Who do you want to go with, Alice?

I'd rather die than get paired up with that prick.
Just... anyone but him.

Damn, that's a lot of hate.

What did you expect?! You betrayed me!

Hey, I told you already...
That was Quar-

I don't believe you.

What, you're telling me you trust him more than me?
"Anybody other than Dio" could mean Quark, you know. You willing to pair up with him?

Listen in: [English/Japanese]

Anyone other than Tenmyouji is fine.
My reasoning is the same as Alice's. He betrayed me last time.

I guess that's fair.

If we want to honor Alice and Phi's requests, then we can go with any option besides C.
So, A or B.

Hold on. We've got two other people with 1 BP.
How about you, Luna?

Clover and K did betray me last time, but...

They're both pairs now, though.
And since you're a pair too, there's no way you'd end up going through the same door as them.


What about you?

U...Um... Let's see...

You know what to do, thread.
