001 † video | action | open
[The video begins to reveal a young Japanese male in a high school uniform, staring intently at the journal as though he expects it to literally blow up in his face. The sight of the Welcome Center is clearly visible behind him. He stares at the journal for nearly thirty seconds, turning it one way, then the other, before tossing it up into the air and then catching it.
The boy scoffs at the device, muttering to himself in a flat and unemotional voice.]
This is stupid...
[With that, the feed shuts off.]
[If anyone happens by the Welcome Center, they'll find a very confused and skittish Souji out front. Despite how unfazed he seemed on the video, he's circling the immediate area, unable to stay still while he tries to figure out what's going on. Sure, the Welcome Center ladies tried to get him up to speed, but who's to say there isn't something more at work here? Staying calm is not one of Souji's strong points.]
