Seeing her standing there caught me off guard, to say the least.
Why don't you come in?
It was you...
Yes. Are you surprised?
What do you want?
I wanted to talk to you about something.
Actually, it's a question I had.
It's about Miss Suzumiya.
What do you think of her?
Oh, brother. She is onto Suzumiya as well.
People always say that it's much better to regret
something you did, rather than regret something you didn't do.
What do you think about that?
Well, I'm not really sure people always say that,
but I think it means what it means.
Well then, let's pretend if you knew that if you kept things
exactly the same as they were right now, you'd be completely broke.
And let's say that you just didn't know how you could possibly make
things any better.
I wonder what you'd do about that.
I don't understand. Are you talking about the Japanese economy?
As a start, when you think about trying to change something,
anything, I mean nothing is going to change if you stay the same
Oh yeah, I guess if you're gonna put it that way.
Then you agree with me!
But you know, my superiors are extremely stubborn and lack any vision whatsoever.
But you can't have that kind of thinking out in the field.
If you just twiddle your thumbs, things will go from bad to worse.
And if that's the case, wouldn't it be OK to force change to happen,
when you know that it's all for the best?
What's she talking about? Is there a hidden camera in here?
Is Taniguchi hiding in the closet laughing at me right now?
I'm getting bored and just fed up watching something
that doesn't seem to be changing at all.
That's why I'm going to kill you and see how Miss Suzumiya reacts.
What the hell?!! Is she serious?
Wait. Hang on. What just happened?
Why is Asakura coming after me with a knife!!?
Oh, wait a minute. What did she just say?
"I'm gonna kill you"? なぜ? why?
Stop kidding around, you're gonna hurt someone with that!
Even if that's a rubber knife, you're scaring the hell out of me!!
Do you think it's a... joke?
Haaa... You don't wanna die?
You don't want me to kill you?
I'm sorry, but I just don't understand the concept of death
regarding organic life form.
Ok, this isn't funny anymore!!
I don't know why you're doing this,
but please just put the knife down.
Aha, I can't.
Because whether you care about it or not,
I really do want you to die.
Right now, I have the control of the flow of the data in this space.
Nothing can enter, nothing can leave.
I have no idea what's going on here.
If anybody understands, get the hell over here and explain it to me!
Oh, please. Won't you just give up.
You are gonna die no matter what, so let me kill you.
Just what the hell are you, anyway?
Uh-uh, I already told you it's useless.
Everything in this classroom is now under my control.
Wait, wait, wait!!
What the hell is going on!!?
She is gonna kill me to see how Haruhi reacts?!!
Haruhi, Haruhi! Man! she is popular.
And if that's the case, then why am I the one that's gonna die?!!!
Silly me I should've done this from the get-go.
I can't move!
Wait, that's not fair.
Your death is the perfect way to make Haruhi Suzumiya take
some sort of action, you see.
Finally, I'll be able to observe a huge explosion of data.
It's a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity!
Tell me about it!
Now you die...
Oooh, that hurts!!!!!
Wait, huh? I can move!
There are flaws in your program.
Your data-shutdown and spatial blockades are faulty.
It is how I detected you, why I was allowed inside.
You'll stop me?
But if I kill this human, Haruhi Suzumiya is bound to do
It's the only way for us to acquire more information.
You are supposed to be my back-up unit.
You are not permitted to act on your own.
You'll obey my orders.
What if I say no?
Your datalink will be terminated.
Would you like to try?
In here, I have the upper hand.
This classroom is the space where I control the data.
Commence request for datalink termination.
It was right about this time that I was thinking to myself.
Oh, man... these girls really aren't human.
Stay behind me.
You cannot defeat me while we're in this space.
Hostile interface, name "Ryoko Asakura",
Terminating datalinks to organic life form.
I'll stop your functions before that happens.
What the ... uhh!
How long will you last if you're protecting him on fighting me?
You need to stay right where you are. I'm fine.
Oh, no... You don't look fine at all.
With that much damage, I'm afraid you won't be able to interfere
with any other data.
Well, I'll finish it.
Now you die!
Do you mean your life for the last three years?
No. Commence termination of datalink.
It can't be...
You are an advanced interface.
That is why it took so long to hack into this time-space program.
But it's over now...
You modified your program with a detonation element,
I thought you seemed weak, but that explains it.
That's the reason you used all of your attack data when we started to fight.
Ah, this is a shame...
I guess I really was just a back-up interface.
I thought this was my big chance to get something to finally
happen around here.
I guess I lost.
Aren't you happy you get to keep living?
Oh, please be careful though.
The Data Integration Thought Entity has more interfaces
that are just like me.
Someday you might meet another interface that also seeks
Or perhaps the one pulling Nagato's strings will change his mind.
Till then, enjoy your life with Miss Suzumiya.
Hey Nagato, hang on!
I'll get some help.
No. My physical injuries are not critical.
This space needs to be corrected before I do anything else.
The corrupt data must be removed and the classroom rebuilt.
Are you sure you are really OK?
All processing power is engaged with manipulating and overriding data.
This interface will be repaired shortly after.
Repair in progress.
I forgot to re-create the glasses...
Actually, I think you look cuter without those things.
I don't really have a glasses fetish, anyway.
What is a glasses fetish?
Uhmmm... It's nothing! Never mind. Just forget it.
Nagato: I see...
What is up...
I FO FO FORGOT my bag...
Mom, Dad, If you saw how Nagato and me were positioned in a frame,
I know you think we were getting it on right now.
O.K. Take your time!!
Uhaha... oh man, what are we gonna do?
Leave it to me.
I'm adept at controlling data.
I'll make it so Asakura suddenly transfers.
No! Not that!
OK, I need to calm down now.
As for the last ten minutes,
I think it's safe to say I experienced something extraordinary.
This isn't a problem about whether or not I believe the crazy story Nagato told
me the other day, or any of other delusions ?
No. What happened just now made me realize what real danger feels like.
I was five seconds away from dying!!
There's no longer any doubt in my mind that Nagato is an alien, or
is at least involved with aliens in some fashion.
