Cover PageEdit

An unknown woman wearing a soft suit jacket and soft suit gloves and a second version of the soft suit bikini. Her jacket is unbuttoned showing the viewer her large breasts and slim waist, while she wears a determined and possibly threatening expression directed towards the viewer.


The chapter begins with the disguised Surviving Shorty Alien standing in Kei Kurono's class, telling Kurono telepathically that it has killed four of his "comrades" while his teacher and classmates are confused. The alien asks Kurono if he feels anything about the death of his comrades, but Kurono thinks that he didn't even know those people, causing the Shorty Alien to declare that it will kill everyone in the classroom. The teacher leaves nervously, telling the students to study on their own, and Kurono leaves also while the students go to investigate the alien. Kurono thinks that he doesn't have any comrades, but makes eye contact with Tae Kojima before he leaves, which distresses him. While walking down the corridor alone, Kurono thinks to himself that it's only natural to put his life before everyone else's, but is visibly shaking while doing so.

One of Kurono's classmates goes up to the alien, believing it to be a student, but is killed after asking why it is covered in blood. This causes the other students to rush for the door, screaming, but they are all killed, forming a corpse pile at one of the entrances. The only exceptions are Tae and Shion Izumi who chose not to run, the former sitting and covering her ears and eyes.

Kurono says to himself that he is pathetic while walking down the stairs, and when he realises that Tae would die too if he just left, stops moving and looks back up the stairs. The chapter ends with Kurono walking back and Shion Izumi facing off against the Shorty Alien.
