Man's voice: Yes! Grand Member! That's Grand Member Maruo!
> A group is gathered around a fat man named Maruo...
Maruo: Man, the thing is, you don't have to deprive yourself of anything. Not a damn thing. When shit gets bad like this, you should just live how you want.
Thin woman: But are you sure people won't judge us?
Maruo: Why are you so worried? Are you happy?
Thin woman: Happy?
Maruo: Of course not! That's why we got to start living the way we wanna live! Who cares what other people think? I'll still love you!
Thin woman: So, I can do what I like... And you'll still love me? No matter what I am!?
Maruo: Yep! Do whatever you want! That's what Maruology is all about!
> The people are starting to riot! Do you want to stop the commotion?
> When you try to stop them, a Maruologist stands up.
Male Maruo follower: It looks like another Hunter's come to pull our Grand Member! Grand Member Maruo is as precious as the family jewels! Everyone! Let's cover our Grand Member!
Maruo follower: I have to be myself. I'll do what I want. So... I'll defeat you!
Male Maruo follower: Gah! Even without any inhibitions, we weren't strong enough!
Navarre: Inhibitions!? You hardly make any sense! Ugh, you can't even hear me, can you? Being a ghost is so frustrating!
> Maruo comes forward to protect his followers.
Male Maruo follower: Grand Member!
Maruo: You guys just aren't there yet. Now, just breathe guys. Inhale, exhale. You guys just weren't completely honest with yourselves, you got fooled by the fact they're kids. You can't be big and strong without being completely honest with yourself.
Male Maruo follower: Now I get it!
Hallelujah: What are these idiots babbling about?
Maruo: Come on guys, check this out. Bring it on, Hunters. I'm whipping out everything I got!
Maruo: If you just give in to your desires and do what you want, you'll start to like yourself. Feel the power of being yourself! Accept the way you look!
Maruo: Whew... I'm beat.
Male Maruo follower: What's wrong, Grand Member?
Maruo: Nah, I'm just... Screw it. I'm going home. I'm bored.
Female Maruo follower: You got bored so you just quit fighting? You really are honest to yourself!
Maruo: Man, Hunter Boy. You're pretty good at this fighting thing. But next time I see you, I'll show you what I really am.
Male Maruo follower: Man, you're as cool as you are fat. You better thank our Grand Member for letting you go, you stupid Hunters.

- > Flynn gives Lucifer a strange smile.
Hallelujah: Finally found you, Bro.
Abe: Glad to see you made it, Hallelujah. You ready for the truth?
Hallelujah: Bro, you're a demon!?
Samyaza: That's right. I go by Samyaza.
Hallelujah: Samyaza? My mother always said that name.
Samyaza: I used to have a girl on the surface. Your mother.
Hallelujah: But, Bro... that means you're my...
Samyaza: I couldn't stay and raise you. Can't exactly raise a kid and serve Lucifer. But look at how you've grown, you're almost like a bona-fide demon. Join me. Be our savior, the one who can kill God. We can build a world of demons for Lord Lucifer.
Hallelujah: I'm not like that.
Samyaza: Yes, you are. You're my son. You're both human and demon. You've got real potential to be strong.
Samyaza: Just do what I say. You've made it this far doing that. Together we're going to do great things with the Ashurai-kai. Come on, Hallelujah. You should be ruling humanity, not serving it.
> Hallelujah takes several steps back as if he's being overwhelmed by Samyaza's words.
> However, Gaston stops Hallelujah before he takes another step.
Gaston: You already know what your answer is. Hallelujah, whose side are you on? It was never about demons versus humans for you!
> Gaston's voice echoes across the room.
> Hallelujah's eyes fill with resolve.
Hallelujah: Thanks, Gaston. I was overthinking it. Fact is, I already made up my mind when I ignored his text.
> Hallelujah faces Samyaza.
Hallelujah: Bro... No. I've already made my decision, Dad. I don't care whose side I'm on, or what enemies I make. So long as I make those decisions myself. I help whoever I feel is right. And right now, that's this guy right here. So, sorry Bro.
Hallelujah: I can't be on your side.
Samyaza: That's a shame. I can't cut you any slack as my son. I've got a lot of fallen angels expecting me to do this right. No one's going to get in my way. I owe it to Lucifer.
Samyaza: You kids have become a nuisance to Lord Lucifer. You may be my son but I can't let you get in the way.
Samyaza: I guess you'll do... My son turned me down, but you know better, you know this world is screwed, right? Help me make a world for demons, for Lord Lucifer.
> Samyaza has invited you... What will you do?
Reject his proposal:
> You decline Samyaza's offer.
Hallelujah: You and me. Man. We're bros. I'm going to knock this out, just you watch!
> Hallelujah's trust in you deepens.
> The Assist Gauge increases.
Samyaza: Just like Hallelujah. You're ignoring the big picture. It's alright. I never did get around to disciplining my kid. Guess it's time to start.
> Samyaza is calm and collected.
> Samyaza's attack power increases. (+Tarukaja/Makakaja)
Accept his proposal:
Samyaza: I've been outdone by my own kid...
Hallelujah: A human would be proud of his son for growing into someone better than his father. See you, Bro... It's time to let go.
- Battle end
Asahi: You sure you made the right decision, Hallelujah?
Hallelujah: I don't know.
Nozomi: It's okay to be unsure. Somtimes sic there isn't a clear answer, or an answer at all. Sometimes all we can do is strive to do our best, to do what we believe is right. That's what it means to walk your own path. Heh, sorry for the sermon.
Toki: Well, you're not wrong.
Navarre: Indeed. I even felt... moved.
Toki: And now it's weird again.
Navarre: What did I say!?
Nozomi: Let's just keep moving.
> Defeating Samyaza has caused the air in the back of the room to distort...
Asahi: Alright! Let's go!

|4/10||Newscaster: ...Many were wounded in the subway derailment accident. The train schedule is disrupted, and there's no estimate as to when train service will resume. It seems that transit problems caused by the accident will continue into tomorrow morning.|
Protagonist: It's news coverage about the derailment. It looks like it was a major accident.
|4/11||Newscaster: The day after the tragedy, people are taking other lines to avoid the station where it occurred. This has caused transfer stations to become extremely crowded with passengers, and...|
Sojiro: Looks like all the trains are running late. If you space out, you're gonna be late to school.
|4/18||Newscaster: And now, politics. The Minister of Transport has made his first public appearance since the tragic train accident. He refused to respond to claims that he had ignored safety risks that may have led to the accident.|
Morgana: He ignored it, even though he knew about it? That sounds pretty serious.
|4/19||Newscaster: Next, our continuing coverage of the suspicions leveled at how the government handled the accident. Criticism of the government is on the rise, and the minister may be forced to resign. This incident drastically affected his approval rating, as evidenced by a poll conducted by this show.|
Morgana: Huh. So he's lost popularity because of the accident.
|4/20||Newscaster: The Minister of Transport, who has been under fire by the public, announced his resignation. The opposition party is blaming the prime minister for appointing him in the first place...|
Morgana: Sheesh... It seems like someone who was pretty high up was forced to resign.
|4/21||Newscaster: The investigation into the tragic derailment continues. Many other incidents similar to this one have been reported recently. In all cases, there was no warning or indication exhibited by the afflicted. Police have not released an official statement regarding this similarity, but...|
Morgana: So there've been a lot of strange incidents, huh? Seems like this world has got its own problems.
|4/22||Newscaster: More and more people have recently been falling victim to a certain type of scam. It's called a bank transfer scam, and they've been happening much more frequently in the city. Many young people have been victimized, and the police are being told to stay on the alert.|
Morgana: The victims are mostly young people? Oh, you'd better be careful, too.
|4/23||Reporter: Time for a special edition of "Discovery! Town Detectives!" On these irregularly broadcast specials, we share limited-edition items that are all the rage! Today, we're going to talk about Recover Oil! It's very popular among young women, and it's on sale now at Body Chop!|
Pundit: Oh, I think there's a Body Chop in the underground mall in Shibuya. I've always had a weakness for limited-time goods. I'm starting to want some Recover Oil myself.
|4/24||Male Host: Hi everyone! It's time to do some shopping! Here's what we've got for you today!|
Morgana: Oh, so this is the shopping channel that everyone's been talking about.
|4/25||Newscaster: Up next is politics. Criticism of the ruling party has surged, following the resignation of the Minister of Transport. A survey we conducted shows that approval ratings of the cabinet have dropped drastically. People's overall disapproval is higher than expected, as well as distrust toward the government.|
Morgana: It seems like everyone's not happy with the government. Being in a position of power must be tough.
|4/26||Interviewer: Pawn to 5-6 on the first move was unexpected. This just might lead to a Happy Central Rook. Ah, is there a special reason why it's called a Happy Central Rook?|
Pro Shogi Player: Well, the first shogi player to use that move was the kind of person who's always smiling. That's really where the name comes from. It has nothing to do with the actual strategy itself.
|4/27||Reporter: Today, we talk about Inokashira Park in Kichijoji on this edition of "Discovery! Town Detectives!" An oasis full of natural delights in the heart of a metropolis, it's great for families--and couples.|
Pundit: You'll also find people going on runs or sketching. It's a great place to relax.
|4/28||Newscaster: The long weekend starts tomorrow, and it looks to be sunny. However, users of public transport have expressed unease in regard to the frequent accidents of late.|
Morgana: Golden Week, eh? I want to go out somewhere with Lady Ann.
|4/29||Host: Hey, there! Next up is our special feature on the boy who's set to be the next Detective Prince! The original Detective Prince was Naoto Shirogane, but people are excited about this new one!|
Panelist: My daughter's a big fan of the new Detective Prince. He's a sleuth in high school and sooo handsome!
|4/30||Narrator: Led by a mysterious figure, the Feathermen reunite! However, their memories have been stolen! Is there any way they can regain their lost memories? Revive and fight, Phoenix Rangers! Next episode... "Don't Take Three Steps! You'll Lose Your Memories!"||-|
|5/1||Newscaster: It's been three weeks since the tragic subway disaster. In the course of addressing the accident, the Minister of Transport ended up resigning. Many questions, however, still remain unanswered, as police struggle in their investigation.|
Morgana: That accident happened right after you moved here to Tokyo, didn't it?
|5/2||Sharp Detective: Admit it. You were at the scene of the crime when it happened, weren't you?|
Agitated Woman: I-I have an alibi! I was nowhere near there! I wasn't even close enough to hear the gunshot!
|5/4||Newscaster: Today is Greenery Day, and popular spots all over town are filled with people. With the long weekend coming to an end, you can also expect similar areas to be crowded tomorrow.|
Morgana: Popular spots, huh? We should go out somewhere too!
|5/5||Newscaster: And now, an update on the arrest of the charismatic teacher, Suguru Kamoshida. A former Olympian in volleyball, he confessed to assaulting and sexually harassing his students. Police will be investigating his high school tomorrow to substantiate the claims.|
Morgana: It seems like the police will be coming to your school. Just act like you don't know anything.
|5/6||Host: Hey, there! Our next feature's on Japanese artist Ichiryusai Madarame! His many works fetch extraordinary prices, even overseas. He's truly a world-renowned artist.|
Panelist: Madarame takes in children with no family as his pupils, giving them a home, right? He's a saint...
|5/7||Commercial: This program is brought to you by KJ Mobile. Tomorrow on Good Morning Japan, our guest is Japanese artist Ichiryusai Madarame. A master who brings fantastical scenes to life, how does he feel about his latest exhibition?||-|
|5/8||Male Host: Hi everyone! It's time to do some shopping! Here's what we've got for you today! Two Calming Masks! Cover your face... and attain trainquility!|
Female Host: It's a fashion statement!
|5/9||Newscaster: Last weekend, the police visited the school where Mr. Kamoshida taught for questioning. The students found it hard to hide their bewilderment at the scandal surrounding a popular teacher. The police plan to finalize the arrest once they collect more evidence and finish investigating.|
Morgana: The school is swarming with police. Anyway, it looks like that's the end of this case.
|5/10||Newscaster: The scandal of Mr. Kamoshida's violence and indecency have made an impact in our society. The high school where he worked and the board of education have been inundated with protests. Even in town and on the internet, many parents can be seen speaking out about their anger and unease.|
Morgana: They're talking about Kamoshida again. Sounds like a lot of people have been complaining about him.
|5/14||Newscaster: Next up, entertainment. An exhibition featuring Japanese artist Ichiryusai Madarame opens tomorrow in Shibuya. Anticipation for the exhibition is high, with specials broadcast on TV and great ticket sales.|
Morgana: Hey, it's that old guy! I didn't think he would actually be famous...
|5/15||Male Host: Hi everyone! It's time to do some shopping! Here's what we've got for you today! Four bags of Protein! Drink this, and you'll be musclebound in no time!|
Female Host: Yes, if you really want to build muscle, you've got to try this.
|5/16||Sharp Detective: Your fingerprints were on the murder weapon--that's undeniable proof that you did it. Give it up.|
Crestfallen Woman: Detective... You've got me. I'll confess. I was the one who killed him...
|5/17||Newscaster: Next up, a report on Mr. Kamoshida's acts of violence. This scandal has rocked the sports world--everyone ever involved with him is being pressed for answers. The volleyball association is currently considering banning him permanently, and...|
Morgana: Drummed out of the volleyball association, eh? Well, he deserves it.
|5/18||Newscaster: Next, we have an update on the massive personal information leak. Recently, personal info stored by several domestic companies was decrypted and leaked online. Hundreds of thousands of people's info is believed to be leaked, and many are voicing their anxiety. According to experts, there is a high chance that an international group of hackers is involved...|
Morgana: So someone stole all that personal information about all those people...? Wow.
|5/19||Game Show Host: If you punch someone and hurt them, you've committed "bodily harm." Now, consider these two cases...|
A: Unconsenting cutting of hair
|Using noise to cause distres. (Knowledge +1)|
|5/20||Newscaster: Next up--entertainment. An exhibition of Ichiryusai Madarame's works opened in Shibuya earlier this week. Many of his pieces--from when he first started, all the way to the present--are on display. Praised by critics, the exhibition also shows the evolution of the master's style through the years.|
Morgana: Everyone's totally fallen for his lies. They'll find out soon enough, though, eh?
|5/21||Newscaster: May is already half over, and now it's the season for the leaves to start to bud. People are out and about in the city, enjoying the early summer breeze. In the city, people can still escape and enjoy nature by visiting Inokashira Park...|
Morgana: Hey, that park looks really nice. It might be a good idea to take a break and relax there.
|5/22||Male Host: Hi everyone! It's time to do some shopping! Here's what we've got for you today! Ever need an Adhesive Bandage? Well how about fifty of them!? The most basic of first aid needs!|
Female Host: You can get as many wounds as you want if you have these!
|5/23||Newscaster: It's the time of year when young people wearing suits come out in droves. The job hunt has begun. With the recent economic slump, many companies are limiting their number of new hires. Popular companies are overwhelmed with applications, accepting applicants at very low rates.|
Morgana: In their suits, everyone all looks the same. It must be tough to look for a job.
|5/24||Pro Shogi Player: Oh, no... That could have easily been avoided. He knows it, and I'm sure he regrets it. It's a nifu... That must be such a difficult loss to accept. I wish we could let him have some time to himself...|
Interviewer: Well then... Let's move on to the postmortem, where we analyze what happened in the game.
|5/26||Game Show Host: Confessions of crime, like the one we saw that lecher Mr. Kamoshida give, have this old appellation. Confessions of crime are the...|
A: "queen" of evidence
|"Queen" of evidence. (Knowledge +1)|
|5/27||Newscaster: The ongoing Madarame exhibition continues to draw in a constant stream of visitors. Turnout is much greater than expected, and those involved are pleased by its popularity.|
Morgana: Is it really that popular? What are they going to do once his wrongdoings are exposed?
|5/28||Narrator: Red Eagle and Feather Hawk get into a heated argument. Who is the true leader!? It's hero against hero in an epic shiritori battle--of wits! Revive and fight, Phoenix Rangers! Next episode... "Having the Last Word Actually Means You Lose!"||-|

Female Host: Everyone will be impressed by your traditional style as you click-clack down the street!
|5/30||Newscaster: Ichiryusai Madarame's exhibition has gotten rave reviews, even from overseas. He's received even more praise for his dynamic art style. Requests for commissions are flooding in.|
Morgana: It seems that even people outside of Japan love him too. I don't really get art...
|5/31||Pro Shogi Player: Well, the natural move to make here would be pawn to 4-3. But you asked about pawn to 9-5? I don't think I'd ever make that move. It's something a maverick--|
Interviewer: Oh, he just moved his pawn to 9-5...
|6/1||Newscaster: Wild-Duck Burger stock plummets after employee posted pictures of himself engaging in unsanitary practices. The scandal occurred just before a stockholder meeting, having dire effects on the fast food chain. As for the man behind the scandal, he claims that he was "fully nude at work before he realized it."|
Morgana: Why would anyone do that? Did he think he was being hilarious or something?
|6/2||Game Show Host: When talking about juvenile crime, you often hear about "probation" for reforming repentant offenders. Now, when it comes to probation...|
A: Overseas travel is prohibited
|Probabtion officers are unpaid. (Knowledge +1)|
|6/3||Newscaster: Even more visitors are coming to the Madarame exhibition in the last few days before it ends. Even those who only came out of curiousity find themselves entranced by his delicate imagery. The exhibition is scheduled to continue until June 5th.|
Morgana: That exhibition is ending soon, eh? I wonder what's going to happen.
|6/4||Narrator: Feather Hawk has regained his lost memories. But now, a new villain has revealed himself! The earth-shattering appearance of a new leader! Revive and fight, Phoenix Rangers! Next episode... "His Name Is Feather Red."||-|
|6/5||Newscaster: And now, news from artist Ichiryusai Madarame's press conference, in which he confessed to crimes. He has admitted to selling copies of his famous painting "Sayuri" as the genuine article. Police intend to thoroughly investigate Mr. Madarame for fraud...|
Morgana: Madarame is on TV! This is getting to be major news.
|6/6||Newscaster: The investigation of Mr. Madarame is still continuing now, on the night after his press conference. There's also reports of a strange letter from a group who call themselves "<group name>." Police are carefully investigating whether this group may have any relation to the case.|
Morgana: Oh, they're talking about the calling card we sent! And they said our name on TV!
|6/7||Newscaster: Next up is entertainment. Complaints about the authenticity of artwork are flooding in from buyers after the Madarame debacle. It seems this scandal will continue to cause confusion in the art world for some time.|
Morgana: The people who bought are from Madarame should have accepted the truth about him by now...
|6/8||Reporter: On "Discovery! Town Detectives!", we talk about Motomachi Chinatown, a popular attraction for foodies! So many Chinese restaurants! Yes, high-quality Chinese food is true perfection.|
Pundit: Good smells are coming from all over this place. It's easy to find something great to eat here.
|6/9||Newscaster: The artist's sudden change of heart came as a huge surprise to the art world. It is still unclear what led Mr. Madarame to confess his crimes.|
Morgana: It's just like with Kamoshida, right? He doesn't realize what happened to him.
|6/10||Reporter: Time for a special edition of "Discovery! Town Detectives!" On these irrgularly broadcast specials, we share limited-edition items that are all the rage! Today, we're going to talk about Soothing Soba, the dish that'll help you endure the summer heat! It's on sale now in convenience stores around Tokyo, and it's expected to sell out fast.|
Pundit: It even puts some Chinese food to shame. It's surprising you can buy it at convenience stores.
|6/11||Newscaster: We discuss the word going around town to help keep you in the know. Today, we cover "<group name>." The have high appeal among young people and are said to be involved in Mr. Madarame's confession. Their methods are unknown, and many are voicing concern that this group may be dangerous, but...|
Protagonist: It seems a lot of people have started talking about the Phantom Thieves.
|6/12||Newscaster: Up next, we discuss looming dangers approaching our city. Since the year started, scam victims have been on the rise, mainly in the Tokyo metro area. A massive mafia group is rumored to be behind these scam incidents, but...|
Morgana: A mafia group? Huh. I wonder who they might be.
|6/13||Newscaster: It's mid-June, and the sky hasn't cleared up yet. The Kanto region is expected to enter its rainy season soon. The Japan Meteorlogical Agency reports that we should be getting average rainfall this year.|
Morgana: That means there'll be more rain from now on, right? It's gonna be more humid...
|6/14||Newscaster: Up next, we discuss looming dangers approaching our city. A team of reporters followed a police investigator who is on the mafia case. What was clear is that there is little the police can do.|
Morgana: Even the police are having a hard time. We can't let our guard down.
|6/15||Reporter: On "Discovery! Town Detectives!", we talk about Seaside Park, which is popular among young people. Relaxing at the park is nice, and the view from the Ferris wheel is really something!|
Pundit: Yes, the Ferris wheel is really popular among couples. I'd love to ride it with a cute girl someday.
|6/16||Newscaster: In other news, there was an arson incident at a factory belonging to restaurant giant Haneruya. An employee was arrested, but claims to be unable to recall any details of the crime. When questioned about his motive, the employee insisted he did not know what came over him. Incidents with suspects whose motives are unclear have been happening often in the restaurant industry...|
Morgana: It's weird that they don't remember. How is anyone supposed to prevent these weird crimes?
|6/17||Newscaster: On our recurring feature about dangers approaching the city, we examine how police have responded. The police stated that they are dedicating all their efforts to prevent more victims of the mafia. However, they have failed to make good on that promise, and the public's unease has only grown.|
Morgana: They're hurting a lot of people. I really wish we could find some sort of lead.
|6/18||Newscaster: We have an update on the arson case at a factory for restaurant giant Haneruya. The arrested employee continues to state that he cannot recall ever committing the crime. With no testimony to link to a motivation, the cause remains unclear. Crimes with suspects unable to explain their motives continue to occur in the restaurant industry.|
Morgana: There's all sorts of incidents going on... Arson is pretty scary.
|6/19||Male Host: Hi everyone! It's time to do some shopping! Here's what we've got for you today! 20 boxes of Mental Floss! Floss with these and you'll magically remember things you never knew!|
Female Host: It's true, I always think about all sorts of random things while I'm just flossing my teeth.
|6/20||Sharp Detective: Crimes don't happen inside a conference room. They're happening out there in the real world. Understand?|
Confused Suspect: Um... Why are you telling me this?
|6/21||Newscaster: Now for our next story. At an event in the city, several people started feeling nausea and were taken to the hospital. The health department suspects food poisoning and is carrying out an investigation.|
Morgana: You should be carefull too. Even phantom thieves would get dragged down by a stomachache.
|6/22||Reporter: On "Discovery! Town Detectives!", we visit the Sky Tower, the new landmark in Asakusa! Wow, we're really high up! The view from the observation deck feels like you're walking on air!|
Pundit: I'm afraid of heights, so the street stalls in Asakusa might be a better fit for me... Hahaha.
|6/23||Game Show Host: Here's a question related to the fraud that Madarame recently confessed to. Consider the following...|
A: Paying a machine fake money
|Ordering food without money. (Knowledge +1)|
|6/24||Newscaster: Up next, we talk about dangers that are approaching our city. The mafia is suspected of being behind a rash of scams, and we've interviewed one of the victims. What we found was a young person suffering in the depths of despair.|
Morgana: One of the victims is on TV. I guess Kaneshiro got him, too.
|6/25||Narrator: Blue Swan and Pink Asas talk about love!? Feather Asas and Swan join in as well! No villain can withstand the power of girls' night! Revive and fight, Phoenix Rangers! Next episode... "I Want a Love So Strong, It'd Bring Me Back from the Dead!"||-|
|6/26||Male Host: Hi everyone! It's time to do some shopping! Here's what we've got for you today! Two Uji Matcha Flan! The rich flavor melts in your mouth!|
Female Host: Oh, I'd cry tears of joy if someone gave these to me as a present!
|6/27||Newscaster: The police have announced the amount of damage caused by the bank transfer scams last month. There's been markedly more damage than a typical year, and people fear public safety has worsened. Police are calling for people to be careful, but have yet to enact any effective countermeasures.|
Morgana: That Kaneshiro... He's really done it now.
|6/28||Interviewer: It's great seeing all these female shogi players nowadays. Do any in particular stand out to you?|
Pro Shogi Player: Ah, yes, I'd have to say Hifumi Togo. She does a very good job of balancing offense and defense. Not to mention, she's very pretty.
|6/29||Newscaster: The intermittent service interruptions have been fixed. The ISP has announced that the problems were caused by an external attack. The perpetrators did not issue a statement, but they are suspected to be an anonymous hacker group.|
Morgana: Attacking as a group... It must suck to be on the receiving end of that.
|6/30||Newscaster: Up next, we talk about dangers that are approaching our city. Today, we interview a man who was once a con artist. In our talk with him, we'll cover the skillful methods of con men, which are constantly evolving.|
Morgana: They really put a lot of thought into these scams. I wish they'd put all that effort to better use.
|7/1||Host: Hey there! It's time for the entertainment news! Popular idol Rise Kujikawa is releasing a new song! This time, the theme is "mature love"!|
Panelist: She's really gained a lot of sex appeal since she hit 20. And look at how sexy her outfit is, too.
|7/2||Newscaster: Although we've entered July, the rain still comes and goes, with the humidity remaining high. The Japan Meteorological Agency announced that the rainy season is expected to end next weekend.|
Morgana: It feels so gross when it's this humid. I also really miss the sun...
|7/3||Male Host: Hi everyone! It's time to do some shopping! Here's what we've got for you today! Ten cans of Freeze Spray! Perfect for cooling down during the hot summer!|
Female Host: Just be careful not to spray it on for too long!
|7/4||Sharp Detective: It's some strange writing at the scene of the crime. This must have been his dining message. ...I meant "dying message."|
Suspect: Was that a Freudian slip, just now, defective--I mean, Detective?
|7/5||Newscaster: On our recurring feature about dangers approaching the city, we discuss the rise of scams. Today, we'll be sharing the story of a woman who was a victim of such fraud. After she was scammed out of her money, she became emotionally unstable.|
Morgana: Emotionally unstable...? Those scammers are relentless...
|7/6||Newscaster: Some people were unable to access the internet again, but service has now been restored. As before, the ISP has confirmed that this was the result of an external attack. After examining the methods used, it's likely the attack was by an anonymous hacking group.|
Morgana: An attack by hackers? Does this kind of thing happen often around here?
|7/7||Reporter: Time for a special edition of "Discovery! Town Detectives!" On these irregularly broadcast specials, we share limited-edition items that are all the rage! Today we'll talk about Melon Pan, which is made by using lots of fresh, seasonal melons! Apparently they're the pride of Yon-Germain, the bakery over in Shibuya Station.|
Pundit: Oh, that looks like quite a luxurious snack. I'd love to try one next time I'm in Shibuya.
|7/8||Newscaster: Discontent with the police grows as they continue to be unable to prevent the frequent scams. Many claim the government's response is inadequate--this will likely affect approval ratings.|
Morgana: I guess that means we're the only ones who can fight back against someone like Kaneshiro.
|7/9||Newscaster: Kaneshiro, the suspect in the case, is the leader of a crime ring in Shibuya. Many people are surprised that such a major criminal was suddenly arrested. Police are also reasserting their stance that the "Phantom Thieves" weren't involved in the arrest. However, some outlets are reporting otherwise.|
Morgana: The police should just be honest. Why play dumb?
|7/10||Newscaster: Now, an update on the arrest of Kaneshiro, suspected mafia and scam ring leader. Just before his arrest, "calling cards" with the suspect's name were posted all over the area. Pictures of these were spread on the internet. Some claim these are proof the "Phantom Thieves" exist.|
Morgana: Putting calling cards up all over town was really effective. Getting famous might keep us pretty busy.
|7/11||Newscaster: Next, an update on the accident that occurred while the public was focused on the Kaneshiro arrest. At 8 o'clock this morning, a car went out of control in a highway accident that left four dead. The police intend to press charges for the deaths of the victims against the driver at fault. The man in question had no history of disease and was a driver for restaurant giant "Goodness Food."|
Morgana: Traffic accidents are scary... You'd better drive safe.
|7/16||Commercial: It's time for the Summer Mammoth Lottery! The pot this year is an astounding 800 million yen! You can only win if you buy a ticket! Tickets are one sale now until July 31st!|
Morgana: True, you'll never win if you don't buy a ticket... You want to try buying one?
|7/17||Newscaster: The fatal car crash on the highway on the 11th of this month has led to some unexpected after effects. Goodness Food's stock suddenly plunged, and general unease has spread throughout the market. Since the arson at its affiliate Haneruya, Goodness Food has been desperate to restore its image. With the vice president, who was called in as a trump card, now dead, the company is panicking. Goodness Food's rivals in the restaurant industry, however, are taking advantage of its slump.|
Morgana: It's one bad thing after another with this company. Hmm, I wonder if they're cursed or something.
|7/18||Newscaster: The following is the statement released by international hacker group Medjed... "To the Phantom Thieves causing an uproar in Japan: Do not speak of your false justice. We do not need the spread of such falsehood. We are the true executors of justice. However, we are magnanimous. We will give you an opportunity to repent your ways. If you agree to a change of heart, we will accept you as our own. If you reject our offer, the hammer of justice will find you."|
Morgana: "False justice," eh? Who do they think they are?
|7/19||Newscaster: Medjed, a group of crackers, recently issued an ultimatum to the Phantom Thieves. In the past few years, the damage they have caused has grown to several hundred billion yen. Even this year, there have been several cyber attacks attributed to Medjed.|
Morgana: What a mysterious group... Just what is their goal?
|7/20||Newscaster: The following is the latest statement released by Medjed. "The Phantom Thieves remain silent at our question. This proves that we are just. People of Japan, wake up. You must not worship the Phantom Thieves. We will discipline any who worship them. The punishment is the confiscation of possessions. We are Medjed. We are unseen. We will eliminate evil."|
Morgana: They're just acting without even waiting for us to respond! What are they planning to do?
|7/21||Newscaster: Medjed, a group of dangerous crackers, has called out the Phantom Thieves. Our show managed to get a "calling card" left by--as it says here--"The Phantom Thieves of Hearts." On it, they also claim that they will make their target "confess their sins."|
Morgana: Oh, we've gotten pretty famous. I guess it's no surprise that we're in the public eye now.
|7/22||Host: Hey there! We're in the thick of a hot summer, and the idols are turning up the heat too! Kizuna Fest is happening again this year, and it looks like the demand for tickets is huge.|
Panelist: I'm a fan of Kanamin Kitchen myself--maybe that's why I've just been eating meat lately... Hahaha.
|7/23||Newscaster: The Phantom Thieves of Hearts have been provoked in a statement issued by Medjed. As of now, no one has stepped forward and identified themselves as part of the Phantom Thieves. With the identities of both sides shrouded in mystery, everyone is watching for what they'll do next.|
Morgana: We were starting to get popular. I want us to live up to everyone's expectations, but these hackers...
|7/25||Newscaster: And now a news update on Medjed, who released a statement last night. The Medjed homepage has posted a declaration of victory and an announcement of their next crime. This is thought to be yet another provocation against the Phantom Thieves, who have yet to respond.|
Morgana: They're really getting carried away... Well, just you wait.
|7/26||Newscaster: Next, we have news on Medjed, whose statements have caused quite a stir. After issuing their second statement, people are concerned about an impending cyber attack. The Phantom Thieves, however, continue to remain silent.|
Morgana: This is really getting to be a big deal. I want to just go and take Medjed out, but...
|7/27||Reporter: On "Discovery! Town Detectives!" today, it's our special feature on summer vacation date spots! Right now, we're here at the planetarium in Ikebukuro! Looking up and seeing a sky full of stars is so romantic. And the atmosphere here is so soothing!|
Pundit: Such a magical place. If you want to get closer to someone, this is the date spot to visit.
|7/28||Newscaster: Although they left clues, hacker group Medjed has not made the target of their next attack clear. According to experts, there are many corporations that could be potential targets. Companies managing public transport and other utilities are pressured to take countermeasures.|
Morgana: Medjed is so creepy. They're really making a big mess out of all this.
|7/29||Newscaster: There's still no response from the Phantom Thieves to Medjed. What do you make of this?|
Akechi: Most likely, the Phantom Thieves simply don't have the means of confronting them. After all, Medjed is quite different from anyone they've gone up against thus far. It seems their best option is to reveal their identities before more people are needlessly harmed.
|7/30||Narrator: The enemy's controlling Feather Owl's body, making him eat plate after plate of delicious curry! Can Yellow Owl overcome the curry, or will he explode first? Revive and fight, Phoenix Rangers! Next episode... "When It Comes to Curry, Always Bet on Yellow."||-|
|7/31||Newscaster: Medjed has demanded that the Phantom Thieves reveal their true identities. The Phantom Thieves, however, have gain popularity on the internet as "allies of justice." Support for them is growing, with some saying they are the only ones who can defeat Medjed. The world will be watching what the Phantom Thieves do before the deadline on August 21st.|
Morgana: Everyone's counting on us. We can't let them down.
|8/1||Newscaster: It's time for a News Word Check, where we explain words that come up in the news. Today's word is... ..."Medjed." They are a notorious hacker group whose members' identities are still unknown. Medjed has carried out numerous cyberterrorism attacks and become known around the world. However, it is still unknown why they intend to attack Japan.|
Morgana: Our opponents are pretty famous, too. If they wanna fight, then let's do it fair and square!
|8/2||Newscaster: It's time for a News Word Check, where we explain words that come up in the news. Today's word is... ..."<group name>." They've been in the spotlight with their upcoming showdown with Medjed. The Phantom Thieves are a hot topic, and they are among the most commonly searched terms...|
Morgana: People really like us. We can't afford to mess this up now.
|8/3||Reporter: On "Discovery! Town Detectives!", it's our special feature on mature date spots, just in time for Obon! We're here in Jinbocho for the the sic Book Town, a veritable Mecca for any bookworm. Look at them all! It's just books, books, books everywhere you look. I'm speechless!|
Pundit: With how everything's digitized in this day and age, it's nice to flip through an actual book.
|8/4||Game Show Host: Pickpockets and cat burglars get charged with larceny, but what about these next two cases?|
A: Take money from a lost wallet
|Joyride, but return the car. (Knowledge +1)|
|8/5||Host: Hey there! Today, we've got a special feature on the unknown world of retro games! It's actually been quietly becoming a boom! Why don't YOU try revisiting your childhood?|
Commentator: That really takes me back. I used to play in secret so my parents wouldn't find out. A lot of people find old game consoles at second-hand shops and buy them out of nostalgia.
|8/6||Newscaster: We've got the latest news on hackivist group Medjed and the Phantom Thieves. We conducted a survey about the upcoming showdown between the Phantom Thieves and Medjed. 80% of respondents said they were interested, which indicates that it's getting a lot of attention.|
Morgana: Everyone's got their eyes on us! We have to take action soon.
|8/7||Male Host: Hi everyone! It's time to do some shopping! Here's what we've got for you today! Cool down your head this summer with a Coolifier Pad! Comes in a pack of 20!|
Female Host: These are also pretty useful when you have a fever, too!
|8/8||Play-by-play Announcer: And there's the siren! The high school baseball tournament has officially begun! In this first match, we have a team with only 13 members from a public school...||-|
|Newscaster: What's your opinion on all the excitement everyone's been feeling over this showdown?|
Akechi: I think for both Medjed and the Phantom Thieves, the attention is their motive behind their crimes. Hence, all the thrilling spectacles to amaze people. I advise viewers not to be so enamored if possible.
|8/9||Newscaster: A little over two weeks have passed since Medjed announced their attack. The police are gathering intel about Medjed and promoting better awareness of security. However... Expectations for police are low, as people focus on the Phantom Thieves' showdown against Medjed.|
Morgana: It's impossible for the police to do anything in this situation. We have to handle this on our own.
|8/10||Play-by-play Announcer: In the critical moment of the third match, the first-year ace Tanaka takes the mound! Despite suffering a serious injury right before the tournament, he's back in action!||-|
|Newscaster: Corporations have been scrambling for countermeasures in response to Medjed's statement. An estimate of the possible damage from a cyberterrorism attack has been announced. According to experts, such damage could reach trillions of yen.|
Morgana: Trillions...? These guys are too dangerous...
|8/11||Newscaster: People have begun flooding back to their hometowns in preparation for Obon. Trains and planes are packed, and traffic continues to be jammed on the highways.|
Morgana: Visiting home, huh? It must be nice to have a place to go home to.
|8/12||Newscaster: Medjed's announced threat to attack has been attracting attention overseas as well. This clearly indicates how these international hacktivists have grown in influence and notoriety. Choosing the Phantom Thieves as their opponenet is also thought to have increased their publicity...|
Morgana: There are even people in other countries talking about us. I guess we should be happy?
|8/13||Play-by-play Announcer: Things look bleak, after ending the fifth game of the second round with a 23-point difference. But they haven't given up! They're heading back into the minor league playoffs to give it their all!||-|
|Newscaster: Last night, the prime minister held a press conference. In response to Medjed announcing its plan to attack, he called for the people to "remain calm." However, what measures the government is taking to prevent this attack remain unclear. It's likely that criticisms of their weak stance against internet crime will only intensify.|
Morgana: Nobody can touch them... Futaba's our last hope, really.
|8/14||Male Host: Hi everyone! It's time to do some shopping! Here's what we've got for you today! 30 cans of Second Maid! It's summer, and that means it's festival time!|
Female Host: This flavor's really addicting!
|8/15||Play-by-play Announcer: Looks like it'll land right in front of the center fielder... No, he caught it! What a great play! He's only five foot five, but that was a fantastic play.||-|
|Newscaster: We have Goro Akechi here as our guest on the show today. People on the internet have high hopes in these phantom thieves. What are your thoughts on this?|
Akechi: I can't really condone it. Though, I may be somewhat responsible for that myself. Perhaps my remarks about the Phantom Thieves may have magnified their notoriety.
|8/16||Newscaster: People visiting their hometowns for Obon are heading back in droves. Airports and bus stations are teeming with people carrying souvenirs...|
Morgana: Wow, look at how packed it is. Everyone's so busy.
|8/17||Newscaster: Next up--the latest of the declaration of attack issued by hacktivist group Medjed. It's only days until August 21st, the day Medjed will attack, and corporations are scrambling. With no sign of a response from the Phantom Thieves, some suspect they've surrendered or ran away.|
Morgana: Huh? We did not run away! And we'll never surrender! Just watch and see what happens!
|8/18||Newscaster: Our coverage of Medjed continues. With Medjed's day of attack almost here, the anticipation over their showdown is at a fever pitch. People overseas are also showing great interest. Some are even betting on who will win. One bookie says that the odds are on Medjed's side.|
Morgana: People are really betting on this? And they think we're gonna lose?
|8/19||Play-by-play Announcer: Bases loaded, and it looks like they might be in big trouble. Can they get through this? Here's the pitch... Strike three! That's his tenth strikeout today! It's a heated pitcher's battle with neither team scoring runs in the tournament's final round...||-|
|Newscaster: The day of Medjed's attack is approaching. Any thoughts you'd like to share with our audience?|
Akechi: Medjed is extremely dangerous. Judging from their past actions, they'll make good on their threat. Of course, Medjed has only resurfaced because the Phantom Thieves recklessly provoked them. If the Phantom Thieves have any shred of decency, they should step forward and take responsibility.
|8/20||Newscaster: And now, our coverage of Medjed continues. August 21st--the day Medjed says it will attack--is hours away, and Medjed has been unnervingly quiet. If an attack does occur, we cannot rule out the possibility of it triggering a global recession.|
Morgana: The deadline's tomorrow, huh? It's not a surprise that everyone's panicking.
|8/21||Newscaster: Today is the day Medjed has said it will attack, and panic has spread throughout the city. Some citizens are trying to avoid going outdoors, and people have been in a constant state of worry. Many corporations have been working around the clock without sleep to prepare for the attack.|
Morgana: Nothing's changed yet. All we can do now is pray...
|8/22||Newscaster: That concludes our report on the hacking of Medjed's homepage. Now, for our next story. Temperatures are rising across the country, marking the hottest days we've had this summer. Today's temperature is at a record high, and many are escaping the heat by playing in the water. Throngs of people could be seen at the beach near the city, enjoying the summer weather.|
Morgana: You have to go to the beach in the summer! We should go!
|8/23||Newscaster: Hackivist group Medjed claimed they were going to attack, but... As of now, the kind of damage they were promising has yet to be seen. Meanwhile, people on the internet are celebrating, calling this a victory for the Phantom Thieves.|
Morgana: Whoa, this is huge! We won!
|8/24||Reporter: On "Discovery! Town Detectives!" today, we're having our special summer vacation edition! It's still not too late to hit the beach! It's close enough that you can even make it a day trip!|
Pundit: That sounds nice. It doesn't feel like summer without a beach trip. Maybe I'll buy a new swimsuit.
|8/25||Newscaster: The police have released a statement regarding the Medjed incident. They have stated that they are "investigating it carefully," with no mention of the Phantom Thieves. Many people have voiced their disappointment in the police, and...|
Morgana: The police really lost a lot of face. It's really not their fault, though.
|8/26||Host: Hey there! Our show is longer than usual today for our very special feature on the Phantom Thieves! After the commercial break, let's see if we can reveal some of the mysteries surrounding them!|
Panelist: Phantom thieves are extremely popular among young people. I hear some even think of them like gods.
|8/27||Newscaster: Now for our report on the Medjed incident that occurred a few days ago. People continue to praise the Phantom Thieves, who are thought to have prevented the attack. The Phantom Thieves' popularity, which began online, is expanding beyond the internet. Phantom thieves have become a social phenomenon, with everyone around town talking about them.|
Morgana: Everyone's really talking about us! It's like we hit the big time!
|8/28||Newscaster: The last Sunday of summer vacation has been sunny since morning, and the temperature has gotten warmer. Air pressure continues to be high, and it's expected that today's sunniness will continue tomorrow.|
Morgana: Looks like we don't have to worry about the weather! I can't wait for tomorrow!
|8/29||Newscaster: Next is news about the Phantom Thieves. <Group name>'s popularity is still going strong. Merchandise of them has even been produced, and sales have been very good due to their appeal. With their popularity still rising, this Phantom Thieves boom will continue for a while yet.|
Morgana: They're calling it a phantom thief boom! I'm so proud of us!
|8/30||Pro Shogi Player: Lance to 2-6... Hm, I don't know. I've got a bad feeling about that move. That kind of move tends to anger your opponent. Once provoked, they act very aggressively.|
Interviewer: That doesn't seem like a bad move to me, but... I suppose you speak from experience.
|9/1||Newscaster: Our next topic is also related to the Phantom Thieves. Many celebrities have started posting public apologies on their personal blogs and other outlets. The general opinion is that the reason why they are doing this is the Phantom Thieves. The rationale is that they will be spared by the Phantom Thieves if they apologize preemptively.|
Morgana: Some people are just confessing what they've done wrong on their own? They must be scared of us.
|9/2||Newscaster: The website of the hackivist group that threatened to attack Japan... has been attacked. But who did it? Could <group name> be possibly involved? We investigated to try and get to the bottom of this.|
Morgana: Wow, everyone's so interested in the Phantom Thieves. Make sure you don't blow our cover, OK?
|9/3||Narrator: Just when the situation looks grim for Featherman, a new ally appears! Donning a cloak of wind, a Feather Arrow will cleave the sky! Revive and fight, Phoenix Rangers! Next episode... "Feather Pink's Victory."||-|
|9/4||Newscaster: Other nations have also had their eyes on the activities of the Phantom Thieves. Foreign media outlets around the world have been reporting the fall of Medjed. Around the world, the Phantom Thieves are being praised for saving the world from this threat.|
Morgana: This is making the news in other countries too, huh? I never thought we'd come this far.
|9/5||Newscaster: A large typhoon has formed over the Pacific Ocean, swirling furiously. The Japan Meteorological Agency is concerned it will make landfall and is monitoring its path.|
Morgana: A typhoon, huh? I hope the plane will be OK.
|9/6||Newscaster: Medjed's cyberterrorism was not prevented by the police, but by a mysterious vigilante group. They're called the Phantom Thieves, and they're at the peak of their popularity. We're going to try to find out who they are. This spring was when they made their first appearance.|
Morgana: The peak of our popularity, huh? I guess we should be careful not to get too carried away.
|9/12||Newscaster: Sales of Phantom Thieves merchandise have been strong, and new players continue to enter the market. With Phantom Thieves inspired movies and TV shows in the works, this craze is still gaining momentum. With the economy in a slump, some think that this may help give it the boost it needs.|
Morgana: People are really making money off of us? Where's our cut?
|9/14||Newscaster: Praise for the Phantom Thieves has been unending. The "Phantom Thieves of Hearts" craze has captured the hearts of people of all ages. Why exactly do they have such strong appeal? We asked people around town for their thoughts.|
Protagonist: It looks like the Phantom Thieves' popularity is on the rise.
|9/15||Newscaster: The Okumura Foods headquarters building has had its windows broken two days in a row. Police suspect that this is the work of a single criminal and are currently investigating. Okumura Foods released a statement, saying they have "no clue" who the vandal might be.|
Protagonist: It sounds like the police are investigating Okumura Foods.
|9/16||Newscaster: This is a damaging blow to Okumura Foods, known for Big Bang Burger. Former Okumura Foods employees have begun raising their voices in protest. Their complaints include unpaid overtime and health problems caused by overwork. Some protestors started to get violent outside their headquarters in a fierce dispute with police. It's highly suspected that this protest is related to the window vandalism incident a few days ago.|
Protagonist: It sounds like a lot of people are protesting Okumura Foods.
|9/17||Newscaster: We have an update on the protest by ex-employees of Okumura Foods. After our initial report on the protest, many people voiced their agreement on the internet. They are particularly calling for CEO Kunikazu Okumura to take responsibility.|
Morgana: All those employees have definitely been suffering. They must be at the end of their wits.
|9/18||Newscaster: Next up: accusations of unethical business practices at Okumura Foods. The company has remained silent in response to questions from the media. Intense questioning from the media will likely continue until they get a satisfactory explanation.|
Morgana: We need to do something before Haru gets wrapped up in all this.
|9/19||Newscaster: Next up: accusations of unethical business practices at Okumura Foods. It has become clear that harsh work conditions have become the norm at Okumura Foods. Escalating criticism of President Okumura has considerably worsened the company's public image.|
Morgana: Our target's Okumura! People will definitely stop bugging us once we actually take him down!
|9/20||Newscaster: A man who posted a bomb threat on an internet message board has been arrested. He has testified that he claimed to be a phantom thief in his post because he wanted the attention. Police have warned people to be cautious of crimes that exploit the Phantom Thieves bandwagon.|
Morgana: I wish people would stop pulling stunts like this. But maybe this happens once you become famous.
|9/21||Newscaster: Our special feature today is on unethical business practices. Okumura Foods has gotten a lot of flak for how its work conditions have worsened in recent years. It's believed that significantly more workers are suffering than the general public is aware of. Some say it's natural to rely on the Phantom Thieves when the government has been ineffective.|
Morgana: He really is a bad guy... And we're the only ones who can take him down.
|9/22||Game Show Host: The Labor Standards Act defines worker rights and the punishments for violating these standards. Now, which of these is the punishment for forced labor, the most grievous offense?|
A: Ten years in prison.
|Ten years in prison. (Knowledge +1)|
|9/23||Newscaster: As the Phantom Thieves' popularity rises, another criminal has tried to profit from this trend. A man living in Tokyo was arrested by police for running a scam. He tricked victims into paying him money with the empty promise of getting to mee <group name>.|
Morgana: Some people are just really bad at heart. I'd like to take them all out someday, but...
|9/24||Newscaster: Continuing our series on unethical work conditions, we will tackle the labor problem, a hot issue. We followed a student who worked part-time at one of these companies. What we saw was a young person pressured by immense responsibilities.|
Morgana: Looks like Okumura Foods isn't the only company like this...
|9/25||Male Host: Hi everyone! It's time to do some shopping! Here's what we've got for you today! Sonic Socks! They're made with a special fiber that's a revolution in thin fabrics!|
Female Host: They're so light, it feels like your feet aren't wearing any socks at all!
|9/26||Newscaster: Okumura Foods continues to receive harsh criticisms from the public for its employee treatment. Employees have been frantically dealing with complaints, the exhaustion visible on their faces. President Okumura has not yet made a public appearance, as demand for him to make restitution grows.|
Morgana: So he's trying to hide, eh? Let's hurry and put an end to this.
|9/27||Newscaster: Now, for news about the alleged offenses of Okumura Foods against their workers. Former Okumura Foods employees who feel they are victims have formed an association and held a meeting. The association exchanged ideas among one another and vowed not to give up until justice is done.|
Morgana: Oh, they're all working together. It's tough to do something big all by yourself.
|9/28||Reporter: On "Discovery! Town Detectives!", we visit a very spiritual spot in Tokyo, Meiji Shrine. People come to enjoy the beauty of nature, and a few come to pray for help in finding love.|
Pundit: It's also the most popular shrine on New Year's and a great place to hang out near Takenoko Street.
|9/29||Game Show Host: The Information Age is not without its pitfalls. You may have done an information crime without knowing! Consider the following...|
A: Divulging someone's crimes
|Divulging someone's crimes. (Knowledge +1)|
|9/30||Newscaster: Okumura Foods has been rocked by allegations of unethical work conditions. Our reporters succeeded in getting an interview with a man who used to work for the company. What he described was a harsh work environment where employees are not allowed any freedom.|
Morgana: Whoa. Having a job sounds like a lot of hard work. What are you gonna do when you're an adult?
|10/1||Reporter: Time for a special edition of "Discovery! Town Detectives!" On these irregularly broadcast specials, we share limited-edition items that are all the rage! Today we're going to be talking about the relaxing and therapeutic scent of Refresh Aroma! With its special mix of autumn ingredients, this item has been flying off the shelves.|

Material Witness: ...Oh, so you're a cop, huh?
|10/4||Newscaster: People have been waiting for <group name> to make a move in response to Okumura Foods. Their influence has expanded beyond Japan--even foreign nations know about the Phantom Thieves. Some countries are even taking bets about what the Phantom Thieves will do next.|
Morgana: They even knew about us in Hawaii, right? We've really gotten famous.
|10/5||Newscaster: Next, we have an update on the phantom thief craze. The popularity of phantom thieves is as strong as ever. More people are becoming fans every day. Some, however, might be going too far with comments like, "I want them to destroy all evildoers."|
Morgana: I'm glad that we have fans, but not if they're genuine fanatics.
|10/6||Newscaster: Our next story is about Okumura Foods. Today, we take an in-depth look into Kunikazu Okumura, the man who made the chain what it is today. Mr. Okumura is well-connected in various industries, and it's even rumored he may enter politics.|
Morgana: The news is talking about Haru's dad. It seems he's got influence in all sorts of different areas...
|10/7||Host: Hey there! With Phantom Thieves fever at its peak, phantom fashion is hot right now! It's all about looking fabulous and mysterious at the same time! Girls really like this look, huh?|
Panelist: Oh, sure. If I were twenty years younger, I wouldn't mind a phantom thief stealing my heart... Hahaha.
|10/8||Narrator: The villain who has gathered together the Phoenix Rangers finally makes his move! What could be in the food tray he had delivered to them!? Revive and fight, Phoenix Rangers! Next episode... "Grilled Gizzard is My Favorite--But It's a Trap!"||-|
|10/9||Newscaster: Our next story is about Okumura Foods. Today, we take an in-depth look into Kunikazu Okumura, the man who made the chain what it is today. Mr. Okumura is well-connected in various industries, and it's even rumored he may enter politics.|
Morgana: The news is talking about Haru's dad. It seems he's got influence in all sorts of different areas...
|10/10||Newscaster: A Phantom Thieves calling card was delivered to the home of Okumura Foods president Kunikazu Okumura. The internet is rampant with speculation over the claims made on the calling card. Awareness of the Phantom Thieves is extremely high, and the world will be watching their next move.|
Morgana: We took care of it, but... We'll just have to wait and see what happens.
|Newscaster: This weekend, sports days and culture festivals were held at schools across the nation. The exhibitions reflected the students' personal desires, and many memories were surely made.|
Morgana: A culture festival sounds fun. Does your school do anything like that?
|10/11||Newscaster: Okumura Foods is in the public eye after receiving a calling card from <group name>. Ever since the calling card was sent out, people have clamored President Okumura's punishment. President Okumura has not made an appearance, and his response to the calling card is still unknown.|
Morgana: We've done what we can for now. Now we just have to wait.
|Newscaster: This is a repeat of an earlier report on President Okumura's urgent press conference. The president of Okumura Foods collapsed during his conference and was taken to the hospital. However, we just received confirmation that he passed away. Truly a shocking turn of events.|
Morgana: I can't believe he died...
|10/12||Newscaster: And now, an update on the sudden death of Mr. Okumura last night. Today, the police investigated President Okumura's home and other places he visited. They're looking into whether this was a crime of accident, but what caused his death is still unknown.|
Morgana: Sounds like the police even went to your school... What are they going to do?
|10/13||Newscaster: With the sudden death of their CEO, Okumura Foods is scrambling to deal with the aftermath. Stock prices are low--it's almost certain Okumura Foods is pressured to restructure their management. The public is watching to see how they handle the issues Mr. Okumura addressed in his press conference.|
Morgana: What's going to happen to Haru's company? I'm worried about that, too.
|10/14||Newscaster: Regarding the death of the CEO of Okumura Foods on the night of the 11th... It seems extremely likely <group name> was involved in the incident with Mr. Okumura. We've received reports that police are investigating them under suspicion of attempted murder.|
Morgana: They're blaming it on us. Everyone's changed their minds about us so quickly...
|10/15||Newscaster: Criticism of the Phantom Thieves is suddenly on the rise. After the press conference was broadcast, people are now calling them "criminals" and "murderers." On the street, people have also been expressing their concerns and fears about the Phantom Thieves.|
Morgana: Dammit! How could they... How can people just hate us like that so suddenly!?
|10/16||Newscaster: October 16th is World Food Day, and various food-related events are being held across the country. Big Bang Burger had been planning to hold a charity event. However, the event has been canceled due to the recent incident.|
Morgana: Things must be pretty chaotic for Haru right now. I'm starting to get worried about her.
|10/20||Newscaster: The cabinet's approval rating has dipped below 10%, its lowest point since their induction. The cause is thought to be discontent with how the government is dealing with <group name>. Evidently, Mr. Okumura's death has had severely adverse effects on the government as well.|
Morgana: I can sympathize. Our approval rating has gone way down, too...
|10/21||Newscaster: And now, our continuing coverage on the death of Kunikazu Okumura. Those in the know say authorities are undergoing major restructuring to prepare to arrest the culprit. We've also heard they're willing to resort to unorthodox methods. More on this as it develops.|
Morgana: ...This is getting pretty bad. Make sure you don't let your guard down.
|10/22||Newscaster: The police are continuing their investigations and efforts to arrest the Phantom Thieves. Yesterday, they spent the entire day conducting an investigation at a high school. However, it is unclear if they found any clues, and unease among citizens is at its peak. The government has been criticized by the public for allowing such a dangerous group to run free...|
Morgana: They think we're dangerous!? Why's this happening to us?
|10/23||Newscaster: Over ten days since it happened, Mr. Okumura's death has had a clear effect on the stock market. Stock prices of security companies are on the rise due to growing concerns about public safety. Overall stock market performance, though, is down, and phantom thief goods companies are suffering...|
Morgana: I never expected that even the economy would get worse... This isn't our fault!
|10/24||Newscaster: Next up is new about <group name>. We conducted a survey about the Phantom Thieves, who have been the target of intensifying criticism. Close to ninety percent of respondents said they do not support the Phantom Thieves.|
Morgana: The whole world's against us now... This could be bad.
|10/25||Newscaster: The prime minister has still been unable to form an effective plan to counter the Phantom Thieves. Criticism against him is not only coming from the opposition, but from the ruling party as well. If the ruling party does split, then a snap election may be a real possibility.|
Morgana: I don't know much about politics, but it sounds like there's a lot going on in the government.
|10/26||Reporter: On "Discovery! Town Detectives!", we're in Shibuya for the Wilton Hotel's super-popular buffet! All the food's so good, it's hard to choose! This is the place to go when you splurge in Shibuya!|
Pundit: I heard all sorts of celebrities and even political big shots go there undercover to eat. The man who everyone says will be the next prime minister goes there too. I'd love to go try it out!
|10/27||Newscaster: Today's feature is about efforts being carried out to reveal the identities of the Phantom Thieves. We consulted a profiling expert for his analysis. He determined that "they're either in their 20s to 30s, or in their 40s to 50s."|
Morgana: They're so far off the mark... Were they even trying?
|10/29||Narrator: Red Eagle is crushed after Black Falcon's shocking betrayal. However... He's not the only traitor! Revive and fight, Phoenix Rangers! Next episode... "You Again, Hawk?"||-|
|10/30||Newscaster: Another string of psychotic breakdowns has occurred. It's believed that all of them have been caused by the Phantom Thieves. The public remains terrified of the cruel and inhumane acts the Phantom Thieves are committing.|
Morgana: Dammit! What's going on? None of that's our fault!
|10/31||Newscaster: Next, a report on <group name> and the unprecedentedly large reward for them. People desperate for protection from the Phantom Thieves are keeping security companies busy. Events this horrific only happen rarely in history, and the terror among the people is palpable.|
Morgana: We've got a bounty on our heads. We don't have a choice--we have to find who really did all this.
|11/1||Newscaster: The uproar against the Phantom Thieves may be extending into politics. The cabinet's approval ratings hit rock bottom due to how they've dealt with the Phantom Thieves. With Representative Shido leading the criticism, many are starting to consider leaving the party. If the ruling party--the Liberal Co-Prosperity Party--splits, a snap Diet election is certain.|
Morgana: They're having a falling out because of us? I don't really get politics.
|11/2||Newscaster: Next up is politics. Highly supported by his peers, Representative Masayoshi Shido is rumored to be forming a new party. If an election does happen, it seems Representative Shido's group will be in the eye of the storm.|
Morgana: Sounds like there's going to be an election. You're still not old enough to vote yet, right?
|11/3||Newscaster: The police announced a reward for the arrest of the Phantom Thieves, the largest bounty in history. However, fewer tips have been sent in that expected. It's suspected people fear possible retaliation. The police are considering increasing the reward and are continuing to request information.|
Morgana: It just keeps snowballing... Is there really nothing they won't do to catch us?
|11/4||Host: Hey there! Today we do a thorough analysis of the Detective Prince, Goro Akechi, who's hot right now! We discuss his private life and the type of woman he likes... at only eighty percent speculation!|
Panelist: A lot of women have been calling him their ideal man, right? He's even more popular than some idols.
|11/5||Newscaster: The Phantom Thieves' reign of terror continues. Psychotic breakdowns--thought to be caused by the Phantom Thieves--show no sign of slowing down. Although police claim to have made progress in their investigation, many still have doubts.|
Morgana: This isn't just our problem... We have to stop those mental shutdowns from happening.
|11/6||Male Host: Hi everyone! It's time to do some shopping! Here's what we've got for you today! It's a Hachiman Belt! Just wearing it makes you feel more tough!|
Female Host: It's perfect for you flabby weaklings out there! You know who you are!
|11/8||Interviewer: Shogi players are supposedly in their prime from their twenties to thirties. What's your opinion?|
Pro Shogi Player: It's true that I'm not as fast at reading the board as I was in my twenties. It's definitely easier for the younger generation to win at speed shogi. Though wait, there is one exception...
|11/9||Newscaster: With no progress made to catch the Phantom Thieves, the cabinet's approval rating is at its lowest. The prime minister has once again emphasized that he will protect the safety of the people. Few, however, support him. If it comes to an election, the ruling party will fight an uphill battle.|
Morgana: They're at their lowest approval rating ever... Ours isn't so great, either.
|11/10||Game Show Host: This next question is an easy one. Who is considered to hold the most power in this country?|
A: The prime minister
|Me in front of my TV. (Knowledge +1)|
|11/11||Newscaster: Today, the House of Representatives has officially dissolved. Mr. Shido's new party, the "United Future," sent a motion of non-confidence against the cabinet. It was approved by a majority vote, which then led to a dissolution of the House. An election is expected to be held before the yearend, and each party has already begun preparing.|
Morgana: Oh, sounds like there's going to be an election. I wonder who's going to win.
|11/12||Narrator: The goal of the evil Daimaho was none other than to eradicate all birds from the face of the Earth! How will the Feathermen, who are slowly succumbing to avian influenza, get out of this one!? Next episode... "Broken Wings."||-|

Female Host: It's perfect for using it as a punishment on someone! Ugh, the smell's leaking out...!
|11/14||Newscaster: Next up--we report about the incident involving <group name>. Although we have received many tips, we still have not uncovered any new clues. The police are considering rescinding the reward money and will continue their investigation.|
Morgana: They're really treating us like we're major criminals! I'm not happy about that one bit.
|11/15||Newscaster: The chilly weather continues, and influenza is expected to start going around soon. According to the medical institution in Tokyo, the number of patients may rise even further next week.|
Morgana: The flu, huh? You'd better take care of yourself so you don't get sick.
|11/16||Reporter: Time for a special edition of "Discovery! Town Detectives!" On these irregularly broadcast specials, we share limited-edition items that are all the rage! Today, we're talking about the Angel Tart from the Taisho Store! It's available till Christmas!|
Pundit: Oh, I love Angel Tarts. I'll buy them, even if I have to wait in long lines to get them. When I see these on the shelf at the store, it makes me feel like Christmas is almost here.
|11/17||Newscaster: With the House of Representatives dissolved, each party has begun preparing for the next election. Topics of safety, particularly how to deal with the Phantom Thieves, are receiving a lot of attention. The key to winning the election will likely be how the parties address this challenge.|
Morgana: Are they just using us as scapegoats? They really just do whatever serves their interests...
|11/18||Host: Hey there! With the House of Representatives dissolved, what's going to happen to the Diet? Our special feature today is on Masayoshi Shido, who just might become our next prime minister.|
Panelist: Shido-san is popular as a man of the people. People really have high hopes in him as a politician.
|11/21||Newscaster: So far, the police have shared very little information about the boy believed to be the culprit. The police are likely being careful about what they reveal as this is a rare, unusual incident. The move has been successful, and there has not been any major outcry as of yet.|
Morgana: It's good for us that too much information hasn't made it out. We probably have Niijima to thank.
|11/22||Newscaster: The Phantom Thieves incident came to a shocking end as the leader committed suicide after arrest. Some are insisting for police to take responsibility for failing to prevent the suicide. But most of the public is praising Mr. Goro Akechi and his team for stopping the Phantom Thieves.|
Morgana: Looks like we really pulled the wool over their eyes! We better act now before they realize...
|11/23||Newscaster: The election date for the House of Representatives was announced today--election season has begun. Candidates from all parties have taken to the streets, asking for support from voters. United Future's Masayoshi Shido has been actively giving speeches in Yongen-Jaya and other areas.|
Morgana: Can you believe how popular he is? But that guy is such a bastard...
|11/24||Game Show Host: Election season is here, and it's on everyone's minds. Now, not many may know this about the Diet... The Diet decides things with a majority vote, but what happens if the vote is split fifty-fifty?|

Morgana: The election is on the 18th. We better make sure to settle things before then!
|11/26||Newscaster: A fierce battle begins as the date of the House of Representatives election is announced. The United Future, a new party led by Masayoshi Shido, is garnering a great deal of support. They have been winning the hearts of voters with powerful speeches and easily understood rhetoric.|
Morgana: Hmph. Just you watch! We'll have you in tears before long!
|11/27||Male Host: Hi everyone! It's time to do some shopping! Here's what we've got for you today! This Hot Water Pouch! With the 2 pack, you can survive the freezing winter!|
Female Host: Be careful not to burn yourself!
|11/28||Newscaster: We asked people for their thoughts on the House of Representatives election. They were asked which politician they thought had the most promise... ...The name we heard most often was Masayoshi Shido, the leader of the United Future party. It's just one more piece of evidence solidifying Mr. Shido as the front-runner in this race.|
Morgana: Just you wait! We'll knock you off your high horse soon!
|11/29||Interviewer: Pawn to 3-6, but this doesn't seem like it will lead to checkmate...|
Pro Shogi Player: Yes, this is quite an event. I think I've turned it around. Wait... Hm? If I take this and they take that, will I have enough pawns...? Wh-Whoa! I'm in trouble...
|11/30||Reporter: We're bringing you today's "Discovery! Town Detectives!" all the way from Yasoinaba! We're in front of Marukyu Tofu, which is the home of the famous idol Risette!|
Pundit: Rise Kujikawa went on hiatus for a bit, but maybe her unwavering appeal is from the power of tofu?
|12/1||Newscaster: December has begun. Around this time of year, people worry about money, and winter bonuses come in. However, most companies' bonuses appear to have gone down compared to last year. Many blame the government for the state of the economy, which will be a challenge to rebuild.|
Morgana: I want a bonus, too. If I work hard, will you give me one?
|12/2||Host: Hey there! Welcome to our feature on beautiful women who are thriving in tough workplaces! Our guest today is Yukari Takeba, who's a breakout hit on superhero shows while also going to college!|

|12/4||Newscaster: We're only halfway through election season, but it seems the victor is already clear. The United Future, led by Mr. Shido, has been dominating the other parties. Victory seems certain for them, and people have high hopes about having a new prime minister. As for Mr. Shido himself, he was once again out giving speeches, and...|
Morgana: At this rate, he's gonna be the next prime minister! We have to make him have a change of heart!
|12/5||Sharp Detective: You made the right decision to confess. Now, your trial should take your extenuating circumstances into account. But, why did you suddenly decide to tell me?|
Woman Who Confessed: It's because... I wanted to eat katsudon.
|12/6||Interviewer: Silver to 9-1? Your hand was shaking as you moved that piece.|
Pro Shogi Player: Oh, was it? I probably have no choice but to give up at this point. None of my opponents ever trembled while playing me, so I'm actually sort of jealous now.
|12/7||Newscaster: It's the latter half of election season, and competition is fierce, even in rural parts of the nation. Here, we have Mr. Taro Namatame, who is an independent newcomer. Having started as a politician's secretary, he worked his way up from the bottom in Inaba, and...|
Morgana: Isn't he a bit old for a newcomer? Huh. That kind of makes me want to root for him.

Suspect Under Investigation: Because the world sucks... I guess.
|12/13||Newscaster: With Mr. Shido's new party--the United Future--in the lead... ...The so-called perennial candidates are putting more effort into their speeches. In Shibuya, one candidate held up a sign while speaking vigorously and with passion.|
Morgana: I'm amazed they still do that when they've got no chance. Hey, wait, haven't we seen that guy before?
|12/14||Reporter: We're bringing you today's "Discovery! Town Detectives!" all the way from Yasoinaba! The Amagi Inn has a long history, and it's famous for its delicious food and relaxing hot springs!|
