Killing Bites (2018) s01e03 Episode Script

I really have no redeeming quality

Killing Bites.
A proxy war that has been carried out for generations
between four zaibatsu conglomerates
with their representations on the line.
Having aligned with the Ishida Zaibatsu,
Brute Ratel was being carefully monitored
by the other zaibatsus.
-Over here!
-Please look this way!
So cute!
-Over here!
How did this happen?
Killing bites!
Mixed screaming tears the silence
Fine tuning your senses in the wild,
Only the winners will live tomorrow
Well-sharpened fangs and biting insanity
We don’t need a reason to fight
All we seek is strength
A spiral chain of life promises
The unstoppable evolution makes
The heartbeat come alive
Starving like crazy, left dry hearted
Putting on my fighting spirit,
Time to stand up
Shout and roar!
Unleashed roaring shakes up the darkness
Fearlessly taking a painful step
Piercing sins lurking in this world
The truth’s swallowed up the lie, gazing at everything
What is going on here!
Why are there high school girls cozied up next
to Nomoto!
He's got his own harem!
Why is this happening right now?
Actually, who is this girl?
I want to ask, but
Things have been awkward since the incident.
I've been having trouble looking
at Hitomi's face.
-Y-- Yes?
Not you.
You, Cheetah Girl.
You going to be following me all day?
If we're not going to do it, then leave.
I'm here to keep an eye on you so you don't.
If you ruin the Destroyal,
I'm the one who'll get in trouble with my brother.
Who the hell is that?
You're a Brute, and you don't know who my brother is?
Besides, what's with you and doing it?
Shut up! I would've done it earlier
if it weren't for you.
-What are they going to do?
-It's a cat fight!
-Could it be a threesome?!
-What is this? A dating sim?
Nomoto! I've had enough!
What are you doing flaunting these girls at us?
-Are you making fun of us?
Um, I'll leave then.
Not so fast!
You've just thrown these bunny rabbits
in the wolf den.
Did you think we'd just let you leave?
Wh-- What are you insinuating?
Well then.
We saw them.
These two girls are animal-ear cosplayers, aren't they?
The best way out of this situation
is for you to wear these outfits.
-Not my problem. I'll kill you.
-I'm fine with it.
What? Really?
I'd be happy to teach this bloodthirsty rookie
that there are other skills to learn in the world.
You've got nothing you could teach me.
Then can you do this?
Isolated transformation.
You only partially transform
to conserve your energy.
How do you do that? Tell me!
I don't mind, but first
You have to get changed.
You bitch!
By the way, give me back my underwear!
What? It's my battle trophy.
Well, I'll be waiting outside then!
I saw it again.
Mr. Nomoto!
Where did these guys come from?
The Photography Club and Film Club
were also interested.
You're not going to back out now, are you?
Oh, um, no
Sorry to keep you waiting!
-So cute!
-Look this way!
This really does take less energy.
It's like riding a bike on the easiest gear.
Could you do a pose?
-Yes! Please!
What kind of pose am I supposed to do?
Just stick your butt out a little.
Like this?
More, so the tail lifts the skirt up.
Like this?
-That's perfect!
-You have an amazing body!
These guys are loving it.
Ratels are not only fearless,
they also have a strong sense of curiosity.
That allows them the flexibility to handle
any kind of situation.
Uh, oh.
This is actually kind of fun.
I've never seen
Hitomi make a face like that before.
What a sad group of guys.
Getting all worked up over that.
You seemed to be having fun.
Y-- You mean you were!
Well, I'll teach you more skills that
will come in handy in battle.
So make sure you listen to what I say.
Fine then.
she's really good at controlling Hitomi.
Nomoto, was it?
I'll be borrowing her for a little bit.
You don't have to worry,
nobody will be trying to kill you
until after the Destroyal is over.
-Want to go to a cafe?
-I feel like pancakes.
Destro-what? What is she talking about?
I was worried for a while,
but Hitomi's in a good mood.
Everything should be okay for a--
Hi, there, we meet again.
Th-- This guy is
He's the lion!
Is Ratel not with you?
You're frightening him.
-Leave us.
-My apologies, Miss Yoko.
Pleased to meet you.
I am the granddaughter of Mitsukado Zaibatsu's
President Yozan,
Yoko Mitsukado.
Mr. Nomoto.
Something serious has happened.
What do you mean?
Yuya Nomoto.
I request that you withdraw from the Destroyal.
Um, what do you mean?
Instead of a one-on-one match,
multiple Brutes enter the battle royale.
I don't understand why this is happening so suddenly.
Getting defeated in the Destroyal
means certain death.
Death? And Hitomi is going to enter this?
Reiichi Shidoh is behind this.
That man is treating the Killing Bites as a test site
for his own research.
I cannot forgive his attempt to appropriate
our ancient and honorable battlegrounds.
I'm not sure what you want me to do about it.
I can try talking to Hitomi,
but I'm not sure she'll withdraw.
You don't understand, do you?
You'll be entering too.
The Destroyal
is real-life chess games where Brutes are the pieces.
The players who move these pieces
are you, the financiers.
Your decisions
will determine whether Ratel lives or dies.
Are you prepared to participate
in a game with her life on the line?
Yes, you are an excellent chess piece, I have to admit,
but if the player behind you is an idiot,
you won't survive the Destroyal.
It's not too late to find another financier.
You should just re-enter later.
Are you listening?
I'm fine with him.
-I told you, a slow little weakling like--
-The weak are able to sniff out the strong.
That's why he'll never go against me.
In other words, I'll be able to do everything my way.
What? What did you just say?
Um, well
I'll ask Hitomi, and if she's fine with me, we'll do it.
One wrong decision could kill someone.
Why are you leaving that up to her?
Because if I made this choice without her,
Hitomi might just kill me.
Fine then.
-We're leaving, Leo.
-Yes, Miss Yoko.
I'm speechless.
Considering he has Shidoh's support,
I assumed he was no ordinary fool,
but it turned out he was just that.
If I stayed any longer,
his stupidity would have rubbed off me.
You made a wise choice.
But now it's clear.
I will defeat Ratel directly at the Destroyal.
You're going to enter, Yoko?
You've been too lax with Shidoh.
That man,
he is trying to make the Killing Bites his own.
But I am thinking about letting him.
This Destroyal,
will be my means to test his worth.
But we are talking about someone
who defeated Leo here.
What piece are you planning to challenge her with?
There is no need for concern, we will use Kido.
This Destroyal
should prove more bloody than usual.
There aren't enough words to thank you,
Director Shidoh.
With Ratel on our side,
President Ishida can finally expect good results.
Oh, and of course, when victory is ours,
we will offer whatever support we can.
Improving the Bureau is a top priority
I'm home.
-Oh, Hitomi, about the Destroyal--
-I'm in.
-You're in too.
-I thought so.
Thank you very much, Ms. Hitomi.
You're going to enter too, right?
My decision may decide her fate.
Will I really be able to do it?
I am entered as a Brute of Ishida.
However, the Destroyal requires a three-man team.
We will need to recruit one more Brute.
How boorish.
Yes, understood.
Our leader seems to really take issue with Shidoh.
Hey, Big Guy,
you find our third yet?
Not yet.
Did they all say no?
Ishida Zaibatsu doesn't have the assets
to secure elite talent.
It seems there's been some interference as well.
-What do you mean?
-Most likely, other zaibatsus are interfering.
But the deadline for entry is tomorrow.
-Nomoto, you have to do something to fix this.
-What? I mean, what can I do?
There's only one person left then!
This Brute isn't affiliated with any zaibatsu,
and dislikes fighting in general.
A Lone Therianthrope?
The Destroyal?
Wait, it's a girl?
Maybe she's really strong when she transforms
like Hitomi.
But I'm a rabbit.
-I understand you are not powerful.
I've lost all my Killing Bites matches.
I got beat so much, I lost all backing
and eligibility.
She's no good at all!
So you should really find someone else.
We can't do that!
Ms. Inaba, please join our team!
I beg of you!
But I won't be any good at all.
That is not true! We need your help!
-You need me?
-Yes, we do.
And if we win the Destroyal,
you will be able to restore your reputation.
I will be able to get back my reputation?
We will either win and be recognized,
or we will lose and die!
It is one or the other.
Die? N-- N-- N-- No way then!
Ms. Inaba, please wait!
Big Guy. Leave this to me.
Look, Bunny Bitch, enough with the crap!
You'd better enter.
If you don't enter, we can't either!
And that'll cause problems for Mr. Shidoh.
I'm not sure why that's my problem.
Even rabbits have something they can do.
I'm sure you'd make good bait.
N-- N-- N-- No way!
I'm never going to enter!
Ms. Inaba!
I think you've only frightened her.
Nomoto, you go convince her.
-I don't think I can.
-I'll kill you if you fail.
Y-- Yes, ma'am!
I feel like I'm getting trained.
Excuse me.
Would you like a drink?
How am I supposed to convince her?
Why did you become a Therianthrope, Ms. Inaba?
You don't look like the fighting type.
I've never had any redeeming qualities about me.
I'm slow and clumsy, bad at sports and school,
and my family and friends always made fun of me.
That's why when they told me
I was compatible for Therianthropy,
I jumped for joy.
But how are rabbits good at fighting?
All I'm good at is running away.
So there's no point in someone like me
entering in the Destroyal.
Um, but you know, take me for instance.
I have no redeeming qualities,
and I've been chosen to enter as a player.
Being weak doesn't equal you being meaningless.
So, what I'm trying to say is
Even the weak can contribute in some way.
Yeah, that's it, probably.
So, um
I think you have a point.
Could I have this then?
Don't mind if I do.
What did you do to it?
It's not me!
What are you doing?
When rabbits are attacked,
they run into their burrows they've dug
to escape the danger!
Don't dig now!
Ow, ow, ow, ow!
Huh? It doesn't hurt?
Then where did the blood come from?
It can't be
I've had other Brutes withdraw from
joining Ishida.
You're the only one left.
The horned lizard!
When facing their natural enemies,
they shoot blood from their eyes to drive them back!
Stang Blood.
She's so fast.
Now you can't run.
How could you catch up to me so fast?
Oh, you're plenty fast.
You're just blind.
I don't think so.
She shoots stuff out of her eyes!
She'll have to hit me first!
What was that?
Enough with the stupid magic tricks!
That's what all you mammals amount to.
You're no match for the versatile attacks of the reptiles.
It doesn't matter what animal you're based on.
The one with the sharper fangs win!
That's what Killing Bites is!
Even rabbits have something they can do.
Even the weak can contribute in some way.
Rabbit ears are like a radar, pinpointing
the origin of sound, as each ear picks sounds individually.
There's someone else right behind her.
Nice one.
Hitomi, Ms. Inaba.
Over here.
She's a Brute for Sumitomo.
-Did you?
I didn't kill them.
S-- Sister?
Hey, tell everyone that Bunny Bitch did this.
Or I'll tell Shidoh what you did here.
O-- Okay.
Does that mean I won then?
We're not supposed to be fighting anyone right now.
That's right.
Ms. Inaba, you haven't been registered
to the Destroyal yet, so there's no issue.
That's the first time I've ever won!
She's never won anything before?
Mr. Nomoto, I'll enter the Destroyal!
You will?
Yes! I won, after all.
I beat a Sumitomo Brute!
Watch out world, here I come!
Thank you very much!
What is it?
You didn't kill those Therianthropes.
You got a problem with that?
I'll kill you.
No, um
You're right! I got one too!
Use the 100 million yen from before as your funds.
By the way, Hitomi,
I heard you fought Yatsubishi's Rowdy.
But you made the right choice
not killing her.
Well, I guess that's thanks to this guy too.
All right, Nomoto.
Let's train for the Destroyal.
-What now?
-Let's head to a park.
I mean, I won't be fighting, and I--
Shut up. Just come already.
Wait, Hitomi!
Stop making a scene.
Are you injured or something?
Do you not see these crutches?
You can’t follow your desires
And do whatever
Curiosity killed the cat
You need to stay away
Even with your delicate smile
And baby blue tears
You can’t camouflage
Your dangerous aroma
Don’t let her bite you
With those fangs that look harmless
Whatever the way you look at her
She is a beast
Guide them, Oshie!
Man, this is fun!
I couldn't disagree more!
Look over there! A drink I've never seen before
in that super old vending machine!
Yay, it's not sold out!
How is it? Is it good?
The Greater honeyguide bird is always on the watch
for areas of interest for the Ratel.
We're in the middle of class!
However, Oshie isn't a Therianthrope!
New report.
Ishida Zaibatsu's Brutes have all been chosen,
but they appear harmless.
Therefore, I project that
Sumitomo Zaibatsu will maneuver to assassinate Ratel.
Next time, "That's Why I Told You To Stop, You Scum!"
End report.
