Episode 1: First Contact
Up in space, where a station is orbiting the Earth, a team of researchers were studying ways of establishing contact with extraterrestrial life forms.
"Look, Kazuo-kun," said a fellow scientist.
"Yes, Brother Band is linked up and we've made contact," the man, known as Kazuo, said. He had bright green eyes and short, spiky black hair. "OK, please verify the position of their planet."
(A/N: Kazuo's seiyuu would be Kouhei Takeda)
"We've done it, Kazuo-kun. We're actually communicating with an alien life form."
"Yeah, I just wish my kid was here to see this," Kazuo chuckled.
Just then, an alarm started blaring.
"What's wrong?" Kazuo called out.
"I'm picking up an energy reading," said another scientist as he watched his monitor. "It's off the charts!"
"What do you think, Kazuo-kun?"
"Our communication probe must've been seen as sign of hostility towards the other side," Kazuo theorized, while typing in several keys.
Kazuo then made his way to the door.
"Where are you going, Kazuo-kun?"
"Whatever the form, we're definitely dealing with an alien intelligence! I'm gonna try and get a closer look with my Visualizer!"
Kazuo ran down a hall and made his way into a large room where electricity was surging. He looked up and put on a pair of sunglasses, the Visualizer, and saw the Denpa waves of energy in different patterns and colors. He was amazed at what he was seeing.
As the waves began to solidify into solid panels, a dark figure was approaching him from above.
"What is that?" Kazuo pondered aloud.
From outside the station, electricity surged through the entire station. A bright light followed and the station exploded.
It was the year 220X in the city of Sakakino, Japan. A teenage male was staring into the night sky with a pair of sunglasses. He had storm blue eyes that glowed like stars and had long and messy black hair. He was wearing a black leather jacket with blue orbs on the shoulders and elbows over a sleeveless black shirt, with the symbol of the Blue Lantern Corps (from the Geen Lantern Comics) on the front, dark blue jeans, and black sneakers.
'The sky sure looks beautiful through the Visualizer,' the boy thought as he watched the Denpa waves dance in the night sky. 'I just wish Tou-chan was here to see this with me...'
(A/N: Imagine Kazuki being voiced by Fukuyama Jun)
"Tadaima," the boy called as he came home.
He looked to see a stocky man in a jacket and cap that said "AMAKEN," sitting with the boy's older sister at the dining table. She had black hair done up in a bun, with green eyes, and looked awfully sad and worried.
"Ah, Amachi-san, what's up? I didn't know you'd be droppin' by. Oi, Nee-san, what's wrong?" the boy asked.
"Kazu-chan..." the girl sniffled. She covered her eyes from her little brother.
(A/N: Kazuki's sister would be voiced by Kinoshita Ayumi)
"The investigation group found this in what was left of the space station," Amachi said. He went through his pocket and dug out the Visualizer.
"Wait, isn't that Tou-chan's Visualizer?" the boy asked with worry in his voice.
"Gomen, Kazuki-kun," Amachi said. "But I don't think there's any hope for Kazuo-senpai or the others from the station."
"What do you mean?" Kazuki asked. He turned to his sister. "Nee-san, did something happen to Tou-chan?" But she didn't answer as she began to cry with her head buried in the table.
'First Kaa-chan dies because of me, then Tou-chan disappears,' Kazuki sighed in his thoughts. 'Why the hell does this keep happening to me?'
Several months later...
"Oi, Kazu-chan. C'mon, wake up," Kazuko urged.
"What's up, Nee-san?" Kazuki said groggily. "If it's about school, then forget it cuz I ain't goin'."
"Actually," Kazuko said sheepishly. "It's the microwave again..."
Down in the kitchen, Kazuki investigated the damage on the microwave.
"It started acting up after I put in the leftover steak from last night," Kazuko explained.
The microwave began to smoke and Kazuki was forced backed, covering his nose.
"Aw man..." He put on his Visualizer and saw little black creatures with hard hats and pickaxes hacking away at the poor, defenseless microwave. "Just as I thought; Denpa viruses."
"Denpa viruses?" Kazuko parroted. "Oh, are we gonna have to call the Satellite Police again?" she asked worriedly.
"Not to worry," he grinned. "Just leave it to me." He opened up his Transer and slid a card into the gauntlet-like computer. The viruses were then slashed at and disappeared. The steak emerged from the microwave, heated and ready to eat.
"Good work, Kazu-chan," Kazuko sighed. "I know I'd be absolutely useless without you."
"Yeah, I know," he boasted as he sat at the table.
"So, how are the studies going?" Kazuko asked as she set the table.
"They're going well," he nodded. "I've been keeping up with the work thanks to the broadcasts."
"Kazu-chan, I've been thinking..." Kazuko started.
"You're gonna tell me to go to school, aren't you?" he deadpanned.
"And you're gonna say 'no,' aren't you?" she countered. Kazuki looked down at the table. "It's OK. You don't have to go to school if you're not ready."
"Gomen, Nee-san," he apologized.
The doorbell rang.
"Huh, who could that be?" Kazuko pondered.
"I'll get it," Kazuki volunteered. He opened the door to meet eyes with a fimiliar face. "Oh, Koto-chan..."
The individual in question was Katsura Kotonoha, class president of Class 1-4 of Sakakino High School. She had long, black hair that reached down to her back and big, brown eyes. She wore the girls' uniform, which consisted of a black jacket, white blouse, red bow tie, black skirt, thigh high socks, and brown shoes. She also had quite a large bust but Kazuki never paid much attention to such details. She's Kazuki's age, 16, and the two were childhood friends.
With her were four other students that he didn't recognize too well, three of them female and one male. One girl had dark brown hair at shoulder length and brown eyes. Another girl had light brown hair wrapped in an upward ponytail and matching brown eyes. Both girls were of equal height. The third girl was slightly shorter than the other three, as she had dark green hair, wore a big red bow in her hair, and red eyes. She was playing with a green and red yo-yo. The boy had dark hair and brown eyes. The brunettes wore the same uniform as Kotonoha, except for the jacket and different socks, and the greenette wore the same uniform as Kotonoha. The boy wore the male uniform, which was a black jacket, matching pants, white shirt, red tie, and black shoes. They were Saionji Sekai, Katou Otome, Kiyoura Setsuna, and Itou Makoto.
"Kon'nichiwa, Kazuki-kun," Kotonoha greeted with a smile.
"Koto-chan...what's going on?" Kazuki asked.
"We came to pick you up," Sekai chided.
Meanwhile, in space, on a far away asteroid, two black figures stood side by side in a crater. They were surrounded by several other dark figures.
"War-Rock, Redder, you damn traitors, did you really think you could escape us?" one of the figures said.
"Hand over the Andromeda Key," another figure demanded.
War-Rock chuckled, "Sure you can have it, but only AFTER you pry it from my cold, dead fingers."
"Please don't encourage them, War-Rock," Redder pleaded. "I prefer to have our energy waves in one piece."
(A/N: Redder would be voiced by Yusa Koji)
"The both of you, proud warriors of the planet FM, how could you betray us?"
War-Rock could only smirk. The asteroid began to tremble as pieces of rock began to break off.
"Fool! Have you activated the key?"
"Later, losers," War-Rock said as he and Redder flew off in a blast of green and red lights, respectively. The asteroid exploded as the two lights escaped.
"We need to get to Earth," Redder said.
"Yes," War-Rock agreed. "The planet Earth, it's calling to me."
"Then this is where we shall part ways, for now, my friend. But we WILL meet again."
"Yes, same to you Redder."
And with that, the two lights vanished into space on their way to Earth.
"Hey! Let me go!" Kazuki demanded as Otome pulled him by the arm.
"Oh stop being a baby, and go to school like the rest of us," Otome insisted.
"Ano, Katou-san, please don't force Kazuki-kun," Kotonoha pleaded.
"Yeah, I mean he IS being home-schooled, right?" Sekai tried to reason.
"Katou..." Makoto started nervously. "Maybe you should take it easy on him."
"Oh, c'mon! Just because he's some genius kid and his dad went missing from that explosion doesn't mean he can just skip school! I mean, his sister must be upset about him not going to school too, right?"
Kotonoha, Sekai, and Makoto could only gasp at Otome's words while Setsuna stared at her friend's idiocy. Otome turned to see Kazuki glare at her with his storm blue eyes as cold as hell itself, causing her to freeze with absolute fear.
"Look here," Kazuki growled. "A: Don't think you know SHIT about me, my dad, or my sister. B: I don't give a SHIT, whether I'm a "genius" or not. And C: WHETHER I GO TO SCHOOL OR NOT SHOULDN'T BE ANY OF YOUR GOD DAMN BUSINESS!" he roared.
Kazuki stormed off, leaving a crowd of citizens staring and the four teens silent.
"Oi, Katou, look what you did," Sekai scolded.
"What...just happened?" Makoto stuttered.
"Otome just said something stupid," Setsuna answered in a calm, monotone voice.
"Kazuki-kun..." Kotonoha muttered. Tears began to well up in her eyes as she watched Kazuki's visage disappear into the streets.
Next Location: AMAKEN
"Excellent, the output has increased dramatically compared to last time," Amachi commented as he went through some documents. "Let's try to keep this pace."
"You got it," one of his co-workers said.
"I'm telling you, I'm not a spy!"
Amachi turned to see Kazuki talking with Shunsuke Utagai, a scientist with dark, wavy hair covering his right eye.
"I'll say it again; I was invited here by Amachi-san, he's a friend of the family!"
"I don't know...maybe you came here in order to steal my research," Utagai accused. "You look suspicious."
"Oh, for the love of Kami...I am not!" Kazuki growled.
"Ah, Kazuki-kun," Amachi called as he walked over to the pair. "It's alright, Utagai-san. He's a guest. Now then, how 'bout we hang out for a while since I got some free time," he offered while ruffling Kazuki's hair.
Utagai then walked off to another direction.
Kazuki and Amachi walk through a hall as Kazuki spots a rocket from the window.
"Wow," he whistled. "She sure is a beauty, isn't she?"
"Sure is," Amachi agreed. "So, Kazuki-kun, what are you thinking about doing when you grow up? Maybe be a space pilot like your dad?"
Kazuki puts on a solemn look, "You know, I've been getting this feeling lately that he's still alive somewhere. And I'll become an astronaut and fly into space in a machine of my own that I've built with my own two hands."
Amachi smiled. Kazuki could be a real genius about things when he got serious. "Well, in order to do that, you'll have to study hard."
"I've been studying every day."
"You haven't been going to school have you?" Amachi retorted. Kazuki sighed as he looked out the window. "Look, you could study at home for as long as you want. But going to school and making friends is an important part of becoming an adult."
"Right. Friends who're there for you when in you're in trouble or when you're sad. Comrades you can count on."
"No thanks," Kazuki scoffed as he thought back to what Otome said.
"Just because he's some genius kid and his dad went missing from that explosion doesn't mean he can just skip school!"
"I don't need friends like that. Not if they're just gonna breathe down my neck."
"What about Katsura-chan? I thought you cared about her."
"I DO care!" Kazuki snapped. "It was Katou that was being annoying." 'Yet I still stormed off like that in front of Koto-chan...Damn, she must hate me now...' he thought sadly.
Later that night, Kazuki was in the park, thinking back on everything that's happened during the day.
"It's OK. You don't have to go to school if you're not ready."
"Just because he's some genius kid and his dad went missing from that explosion doesn't mean he can just skip school!"
"WHETHER I GO TO SCHOOL OR NOT SHOULDN'T BE ANY OF YOUR GOD DAMN BUSINESS!"
Kazuki sighed as he put on the Visualizer, watching the Denpa waves pass in the night sky.
"Koto-chan would love to see this," he mused aloud. "Huh?" Kazuki sat up as he adjusted the Visualizer. He then saw two waves of energy dance around each other. They also bounced off each other, as if they were fighting one another. "Those are some weird Denpa waves."
In their own plane of existence, the two Denpa waves were actually aliens. One was blue and wore some parts of armor as it looked like a swan. The other energy being was mostly green and had dark blue armor over his head, upper torso, shoulders, and wrists. He had sharp teeth, red eyes, and looked pretty nasty.
"Found you again, War-Rock," the swan-like being said.
"Cygnus," War-Rock growled.
"You must think you're pretty clever, running off while exploding that slab of rock."
"Heh, I'm surprised a slowpoke like you was able to catch up with me so quickly," War-Rock snickered.
"Enough of this shit! Hand over the key!"
Kazuki watched from his spot as he tried to assess what was going on.
"It's as if...those lights are fighting..."
The two beings charged at each other, causing a small explosion. Alight began to shine bright as War-Rock fell to the planet...straight at Kazuki!
"I should be moving, but I'm not moving, aren't I," he deadpanned to himself. Then the light hit him. "ARGH!"
Several seconds later, Kazuki was laying face down on the concrete floor.
To Be Continued...
Bushido: So, that's it for this chapter. I took out some of the cast from "Ryuusei no Rockman" and added some characters from "School Days." Neither anime belong to me. I wanted to bring them together cuz the idea came into my head for the past few days, so I wanted to try it. So, please R+R! There will be more surprises in the next installment of "Rockman Days!"
