Welcome to Akihabara, agent.
If this is your first time here, you may find the culture a bit unusual, to say the least. But to those who lead their lives here, it's a paradise. They see it as a safe haven from the outside world, where they can celebrate the music, the games, the shows, and the characters they love.
We're here to keep it that way.
None of them know what's happening here. What's watching them, hunting them, picking off their friends who get lost after dark. Why those friends resurface as hopeless shut-ins, barely able to speak, let alone walk outside ever again.
We're still gathering information for now, but check back soon for the latest on our contacts, intel, equipment, and techniques.
For Japan and humanity,
Acting Director Ryuji Sejima
