- PREVIEW LIED.
- KANATA PISSED HERSELF.
- Translated synopsis (TV Tokyo)
Sitting in a chair, a teary-eyed Kanata continues to endure. Before her eyes, one black phone. Now, she is in the line of duty. And her mission: Headquarters enacted a state of emergency, and tasked her with communicating orders--
- Translated synopsis (homepage)
This time, Kanata sits in a chair, quietly continuing to wait. Broken bottles, wet laundry. The mess hall's frantic appearance only gives Kanata doubt and regret.
If she sighs that moment...if she were to wait out this time...
Before a teary-eyed Kanata is a black phone, which has yet to ring.
Private Kanata Sorami. Now she is on orders to wait for an extremely pressing emergency call from headquarters
The squad are asked to watch over the emergency phone and wait for a call to check it is still in order, so Kanata decides to take responsibility whilst the others go out for various tasks. Before Rio leaves, she gives Kanata a trumpet book, signed by an Iliya Arkadia. Later, Seiya, Mishio and the Priest arrive, and decide to help Kanata practise using a phone, but a mess is made when Mishio spooks Shuko. Yumina arrives at that point, scolds the others and gives Kanata a change of clothes. Afterwards, Kanata needs the toilet but can't leave her post, so she holds out until Rio comes back. The phone then rings and Rio answers, hearing a voice she's not too fond of asking her to save Helvetia.
