Nobody knows...

when the world became this way.

One day,

the contagion suddenly started...

and humans lost the power

to connect with the city.

After that,

the city expanded on its own...

and humans were seen as

illegal residents... and exterminated.

It all happened...

long before I was born.


This way.

Be careful.

Yeah. Sorry.

You're too jumpy.

We can hear you.

It's still okay around here.

We might've just been lucky up until now.

- Don't let your guard down.

- But...

Zuru's right, you know.

I wonder if this is really the right path.

It is a bit different from the map.

It's an old map. The area must

have been rebuilt by the Builders.

Do you really think we'll be okay

on our own?

Let's go back.

Why the heck would we go back

when we've come this far?

It should be just beyond this passage.

I think.

Zuru, up there.

The exit.


Are you okay? Tae?

Thanks, Fusata.

Are you okay, Tae?

I'm sorry, Zuru. The spare battery.

We'll be in trouble when we get back.

It's just one battery.

Everyone'll be thrilled if we come back

with some sludge. Come on.


Zuru, what are you doing? Hurry.

A Builder!

Don't worry.

These guys don't pay

any attention to humans.

Okay, let's go. We're almost there.

It's making more weird stuff.

Let's go, Tae.

Whoa, this is...

I've never seen a place so big.

A watchtower!

That's why the grown-ups

told us not to come here.

Well, that's it. Let's go home.

Make sure the watchtower doesn't see us.

And how are we supposed to

get to the hunting grounds

while avoiding that huge thing?

Let's take another route.

We'll go through here.

It's a big detour.

There's tons of obstacles in the way.

Well, it can't be helped. Come on.

If the Safeguard appeared

in a place like this...

We've been trained as

Electro-Fishers, too, you know.

Sutezo said that Zuru's already as skilled

as a full-fledged Electro-Fisher.

But we took this gear without permission.

Pops is definitely gonna be mad.

Zuru, I'm sorry.

What? Tae?

You said it was for my sister's sake,


For us to go out hunting alone like this.

It's not just for Ito.

After all, there's almost nothing

left to eat in the village.

Thanks, Zuru.

We did it.

Look, over there.

Look at all the bugs!

It's the sludge pipes!


It's no good.

It's totally dried up.

But it's such a thick pipe.


The watchtower?

The Safeguard!


Yaichi! Above you!



Everyone, stay calm!

Remember our training, lure them in

then shoot!

Did you hear that, Shizu? Lure them to me!

I can't get them off me!


Damn it!

Shiro! Everyone!






Are you okay?


Yeah, this is no...

Wait, Fusata.

It stopped.

Take off your headgear.

I want to see your eyes.

- Hey.

- Zuru.


We're still in the watchtower's view!


The watchtower didn't react

even when she took her helmettals off?

Hey! Tae!

Are there...

any humans here

with the Net Terminal Gene?

Net Termi...?


You saved us... so I wish we could

do something to help you in return...

but we don't know what it is

you're talking about.

Wait. One of the grown-ups

might know something.

But before that, please, tell us...

what are you?

I'm Killy.

A human.

Our village is inside

the perimeter up ahead.

We'll be fine once we get back there.


That's the one place

the Safeguard can't enter.

We don't know why, though.

See, that's the perimeter up ahead.

Stop! Zuru, get away from him!

Sutezo, wait!

Why are you all showing your faces?

You'll be spotted by the watchtower!
