Risechi! Risechi! Risechi! Risechi! Risechi! Risechi! I quit.
Huh? I'm going to resign.
Huh? Wha- wait.

I imagine your fans must be worried because of your sudden break.
Are you suffering from any health problems? No, my health isn't an issue or anything.
Is it related with your mental health? Huh? No, it's not.
Is it true you'll be taking your R&R in Inaba? Yes.
Excuse me, but why the break? This means Risechi is here for real! Rise has no further comments.
I can't believe an idol's coming out here! We shall now take a commercial break.
This has everything I need.
Aqua Balance can sate your quenched body.
Hello? Yeah, it's Rise.
Milk? Okay.
Yeah, I don't mind.
Hey, isn't that her? Grandma, you take it easy.
No way! Isn't that Risechi? You dropped this.
You should have said so sooner! Oh, sorry.
You gave it back to me, so thanks.
Note: The cell phone strap is made of ganmodoki, fried tofu fritter made with thinly sliced vegetables, kelp and egg whites.
Oh, that strap Huh? It looks tasty.
PRESS CONFERENCE REGARDING RISE KUJIKAWA'S HIATUS Analogue Doesn't your grandmother run a traditional tofu shop in Inaba? Yeah Do you know when you'll return to work? No, not yet.
Say, do you think we'll run into Rise-chan? I did.
So are you looking to retire? Onii-chan, you saw her? You saw Rise?! I don't know.
Probably.
That's so cool! Was she as cute as she is on TV? How will you be spending your time? I haven't decided yet.
Isn't Inaba where they've had some unsolved serial murders? Well, we're out of time, The best thing about this town was how quiet it is, but it's been crazy here this year.
but stay tuned for these commercials.
Analogue I know that I am the only true you.
Aim for your true self! For licensing, go to Your Future! What? Amagi, you know Rise's family? Marakyu is probably the traditional tofu shop they were referring to.
We carry their tofu.
Oh, that place! So if we go by the tofu shop, we could see Rise? Hold it! This isn't the time for this kind of silliness.
If the cases up till now were linked with the TV, she might be targeted next.
But it's not like Rise's never been on TV before, you know? I looked into it, but Rise-chan's only connection is with the belated Ms.
Yamano! They appeared on one or two shows together.
With all that fuss about her taking leave, she's the talk of the town.
And to top if off, she's moving here! Good point.
If our assumptions are correct, she fits the criteria.
What do you mean? If he goes after Rise, then the killer is targeting people from this town who go on TV.
It will eliminate the assumption that he's targeting people related to Ms.
Yamano's murder.
Oh, now I get it! Are you sure? But we still don't know the killer's motive.
Maybe he has a grudge against us? I mean, I know a shitload of people who hate my guts.
Amagi-senpai, how about you? Ever pissed anyone off? Nope.
Come on, Yukiko! Everyone's done that, maybe without even realizing it.
Nope.
I-I guess not Err, in any case, I have no idea what everyone's done to cause such animosity.
Well, we can ask him for his motive once we catch him! For now, we should keep an eye on Rise.
I'm telling you, that's Rise! Are you sure? Doesn't she seem somehow different? I'm dead sure! That chest! Those hips! And her beautiful thin legs! W-What're you looking at me for?! Narukami, what do you think? They're fine.
Say what?! I have to disagree.
Jiraiya! Chie, Jiraiya is Hanamura's Persona.
Yours is Tomoe.
Chie's is Tomoe.
Senpai, are you taking this seriously? What is Chie's? A Chie Pet? We are.
Then should we check out the tofu shop? Yukiko and I have to run by the Faculty Office, Chie's is the Chie Pet, Tomoe.
Chie's moe! we'll catch up later.
Okay, let's go! Just so you know, this is for our investigation.
This isn't about seeing Rise in the flesh! Enough with the excuses already.
There's a bunch of weirdoes hanging around.
Marakyu Tofu Shop Same goes for us.
Sold Out of Tofu W-What the hell?! I can't go back now after coming all this way to see Risechi! E-Excuse me! Didn't you see the notice? We're out of tofu.
No way I-It's really R-Risechi! Are you Rise? No honorific titles? Huh? You're the guy from yesterday Hello! What?! You already know each other? That's not fair! Didn't you come to get some tofu? I certainly did! And we're sold out.
Oh, um Note: Ganmodoki is the fried tofu fritter Rise's cell strap is patterned after Six ganmodoki please.
Nice ad lib! Six Ganmodoki it is.
She's got attitude problems.
You're one to talk.
Ummm Man, I'm glad I came.
We've cleared our mission for today.
We still have a job to do.
A job? Come again? Have you noticed anything strange lately? Oh, yeah! That's right.
Anything strange? Like a stalker? Have you ever heard of the Midnight Channel? You mean that program last night? Huh? Did you watch it? Yeah, since I'd heard the rumors.
But the girl on the TV wasn't me.
Huh? I've never worn that swimsuit in a promotional video.
Besides, my chest isn't that big.
Yeah, I see Down, boy! The person on that show might get kidnapped.
Huh? I bet it's hard to swallow, but we aren't lying or pulling on your chain.
Hey! You're upsetting the neighbors, so beat it! Excuse me- Hey there.
What? H-Hey! What are you doing here? Tatsumi Kanji Uh, well, right! We're here to get some ganmodoki! Here! Marakyu Tofu Shop Later.
Let's go, come on! Thanks again.
Come again.
Do you have a moment? I'm Adachi from the Inaba Department.
You're a policeman? I'm sure you've heard, but this area has been dangerous as of lately.
Why did you suddenly decide to get some R&R here? I got tired.
Honestly, I don't mean to scare you, but But there's a chance I might get kidnapped, right? Those three guys just warned me.
I'll be careful.
They did? Well, I have work to attend to H-Hey, just a second! Since she's in town anyway, she should have asked our chief to help for the day.
Digital TV Protecting today so we have a tomorrow.
For a safe future! Digital TV D-Doujima? I only came to warn Rise Kujikawa based on my gut feeling.
How could some high school kids that don't know the situation beat me to it? Expression Eloquent Courage Brave Understanding Generous Knowledge Informed Diligence Strong Diligence Strong Courage Brave Understanding Generous Knowledge Informed Expression Eloquent Senpai, why are we stalking her? We might find the guy who's after Rise if we tail her.
Keep your eyes peeled for suspicious characters.
But we look damn shady as well.
What on Earth are you guys doing out here? You look really suspicious.
Are you the killer? Hey! Thanks again! You really do deliver anywhere, don't you? Just leave the bowls.
I got the extra large.
Mine is roasted pork! I got tanmen.
Note: Tanmen - Chinese noodles served with vegetables and meat in broth.
Don't touch my steak and rice! The kitsune ramen's mine.
Here, here, here! The set's mine.
What?! What's a detective doing out here? Doujima-san ordered me to- Well, see, I overheard you making an order while doing some legwork for Doujima.
Talk about timing, eh? Jeez, why do we have to eat with a cop? She's moving.
Great, let's go! But we haven't eaten yet! C'mon.
At least let me eat my tofu.
Hey, look.
The killer? What?! That hit the spot.
You bastard! You little-! Hold it, punk! Just leave Risechi to me.
You're coming with me! Ow, ow ow! Narukami-kun, watch her.
Me? Wait, dammit! I'm going to pummel you! You can't! It'll be the police's fault if the suspect gets hurt! What's going on? What are you doing?! I'm just your typical Risechi-loving fan.
You're hardly "typical" when you murder people! Murder? What are you talking about? Save it for the station! Whoo! I've always wanted to say that! Now get up! I didn't! I appreciate your help in apprehending the killer.
Go on! Keep up the pace! So it's all over now? The case is solved? Boo-yeah! But he could just be a fan.
Did I get kidnapped by a wimp like that? No way.
Is it safe here? We can see if someone's coming from any direction.
I'm used to having stalkers.

Rise's Perfect Body!! Rise's Perfect Body!! The girl everyone makes such a fuss over isn't the real me.
Risechi, huh? That's just an idol made up to sell.
No one has seen the real me.
Impressive! You suck.
That hurts! Sorry.
Look! I can do it, if I try.
That's cute! The killer(?) has been caught.
Hurry back with Risechi.
Looks like the coast's clear.
Okay.
It's getting dark outside, so let's go.
You never told me your name.
Narukami Yu.
I'm Kujikawa Rise.
I heard that on the news last night.
The Midnight Channel last night Yeah.
I caught a glimpse of her in the store when I passed by this morning.
It looks like the variety show only starts up once they've entered the TV.
Didn't we discuss how the person inside the TV could be producing the show? They could be subconsciously showing us their inner thoughts.
But then, what's up with the fuzzy program that comes on before they go missing? It could be the killer's warning.
But who's he warning? And why? Ask the culprit.
Is it possible that what the killer is thinking is being aired, so it looks like a warning? So we're seeing who he's bent on targeting next? Are you saying it's his fantasy of "I'm going to attack you!"? Wouldn't that mean that pervert from earlier wasn't our guy? All we know for sure is that Kujikawa Rise is in danger.
Kujikawa? Oh, Narukami-kun! Starting up school today? I'm tranferring to one of their first year classes.
I'm here to file the paperwork.
I see.
That shoe box is yours? Yeah, it's for second years.
So you're my senpai.
Be sure to show me the ropes, Narukami-senpai.
I just transferred here last April myself.
They weren't here when I arrived.
I wonder how they heard about this.
Let's take a different route.
No Tres- passers Allowed on School Campus No Tres- passers Allowed on School Campus No Tres- passers Allowed on School Campus No Tres- passers Allowed on School Campus No Tres- passers Allowed on School Campus This is like a TV drama.
Pretty cool, huh? Daidara We can't sneak through Rise! Mr.
Inoue? Tatsuhime Shrine What brought you here? I couldn't go along with this as your manager, Rise Kujikawa.
I'm not an idol anymore! I'm not some doll that needs her time managed by others.
About that movie where you were given the starring role Are you trying to force me to perform again? Just go.
Kanami has taken your role.
Kanami? Mashita Kanami? I'm going to back up Kanami as best I can! Are you okay? Are you sure you aren't deceiving yourself? What would you know?! As if you know a damn thing! You're just like everyone else.
No time to waste, but make your pace It's okay to remove copy and paste I'm doing my way.
You do it your way Don't just follow your left, find the right way Stereotypes Too many hypes I'm the epitome of new types Having the fear is power to my soul Cuz I overcome them That's how I roll Expose your thoughts Don't be afraid of making mistakes Rules prevailing in That may be your greatest rival Believe in faith and your heart Your true soul Stop being in the shades Come on out in the open sun Beauty of the child of destiny Delightful days are rich with density of love Thorny path, there's no easy way for real bliss So I keep on fighting for beauty of destiny Don't jump into this just for some fun.
Eh? If you aren't careful, you could get hurt.
If you're gonna play, do it elsewhere.
Okay Err, I'm sorry.
Are you fighting again? It's nothing.
Don't worry about it.
Maru-Q! There's a bunch of Risechis? Why does this feel so strange? No, you're wrong! My glasses! My glasses! What the heck?! Goodbye forever.
