5:30 AM – U__ Harbor, K__ Prefecture.
A VIP arriving from abroad mysteriously disappears in transit. The SORD team at Mihama Academy are presented with a new mission: finding and recovering him.
Whenever they appear to be closing in on this missing “package”, though, it somehow slips through their fingers.
Before long, the team’s thrilling chase descends into a deathmatch, pushing the combatants to their limits and beyond. Rena and Haruto, meanwhile, are taken on a journey deep into the past, to their first ever encounter.
“What are you good at?”
“I’m just a crybaby and a wimp… All I can do is kill…”
“Do you plan on buying me…?”
“If the price is right.”
Did Haruto really show Rena the path to salvation? Or is she on the road to hell…?

Name : Aoi Haruto (蒼井 春人)
Role : Protagonist
A former CIRS agent who now serves as a tactical instructor at Mihama Academy, and as a handler to the school’s students. Though he looks young, he has a great deal of experience on the field, and he still has lots of friends on CIRS’ current roster.
Haruto radiates warmth and gentility, but this has left him an object of teasing at Mihama – the girls under his charge tend to treat him like he’s just another kid. He can also be pretty tight-lipped about his past. Some of his memories are in fact rather vague, and there remain lots of gaps in his work history.
Gunplay really isn’t Haruto’s strong suit. He doesn’t often succeed in striking his target (though some people believe this apparent ineptitude to be a deliberate ploy on his part).
He has little interest in food, and will usually make do with just a salad.
Haruto will often issue strategic commands on the battlefield, but he rarely finds himself standing in the trenches. He uses a sword, but not one made in the Japanese fashion; it would certainly be a bit of a stretch to call it a katana.
“Haha, my classmates often tell me I’m a total asshole.”
Name : Fukami Rena (深見 玲奈)
Role : Main Character
A gunwoman who’s charged with shooting on Haruto’s behalf, due to his personal distaste for firearms. Rena’s a lively girl, amiable and warm in her dealings with just about everybody. She’s tall and well-proportioned, her limbs smooth and powerful. She makes sure to stay healthy and active.
Rena has a strong sense of responsibility, and tends to be quite cautious; she’s always scanning the environment for threats. Her loyalty to Haruto, her ‘Master’, and the docility she demonstrates around him, are most notable.
However skilled Rena is physically, she struggles quite a bit in the classroom. When told off, she quickly grows timid; she has a good appetite for learning nonetheless, and responds well to praise.
She favors an M1911-style pistol, and lets loose about two hundred rounds every day.
Rena also has a tendency towards obsession. Once she develops an interest in a handgun, she can’t make do with any other weapon until the heft of that particular gun is ingrained in her senses. Though law enforcement agencies having summarily dismissed the superiority of .45 ammo, Rena obstinately persists in using it, even going so far as to get lightweight bullets specially manufactured by the school gunsmith.
She has a motorcycle license, and when she’s feeling particularly ravenous, she’ll often sneak out in the middle of the night for ramen.
“I haven’t had a really filling meal recently – like sushi, or something nice and meaty…”
Name : Shishigaya Touka (獅子ヶ谷 桐花)
Role : Main Character
A sniper. Her mother is German, her father American. Growing up, Tohka learned self-defense techniques and riflery from her father, a former soldier, and his comrades; she was the youngest ever winner of a shooting competition in her hometown. In the wake of her mother’s death, she spent two years attached to a PMC (private military contractor) alongside her father.
She can be extraordinarily belligerent, and sometimes breaks into outbursts of violence. She is, in short, a classic tsundere. Though infinitely curious about the world, she has a pragmatic side, too: she won’t tolerate any nonsense. She possesses a measure of shrewdness and inner strength that belies her cute, childish exterior.
Whenever she was left home alone as a child, Touka would shove a shotgun in the face of any cold-caller who came knocking; she’s since become known for her shyness around strangers. She tends to take an instant dislike to anyone she meets. She’s clearly desperate to be regarded as a friend by others, though, however little effort she exerts in this regard herself.
She’s basically pretty bad at making friends. She also has a bit of a complex about her small stature, and it’s to compensate for this that she tries to act all grown-up.
“Really? Then listen up, all of you! Calling me ‘cute’ IS badmouthing me!!”
Name : Kujirase Christina Sakurako (鯨瀬 クリスチィナ 桜子)
Role : Main Character
An explosives and computer specialist, born in Shanghai to British parents. Of the 148 students at Mihama Academy, Chris is ranked eighth in terms of test scores, and she’s ended up in charge of helping the rest of the class with their studies. She comports herself well around other people, and ordinarily seems quite meek, but she’s said to become genuinely scary when she’s angry.
Just like Haruto, Chris isn’t too fond of guns, and generally refuses to carry one. In fact, her standard-issue handgun is a defective model that ought to have been returned to the manufacturer, and that doesn’t appear to bother her in the least.
She used to wear her beautiful blonde hair down past her shoulders. When she was in elementary school, though, she accidentally set off a bomb in the school toilets, and singed her hair; ever since then, she’s kept it short.
A helpful girl who’s proficient in every kind of household chore, Chris is something of a den mother to the other students: she prepares meals in the student dorm, cleans her friends’ bedrooms, and does their laundry. She also has rather poor eyesight, wearing contact lenses almost all the time. Only in the brief moment between her waking up and washing her face will you find her in glasses.
“I see. In that case, don’t hesitate to call for me if you do happen to step on a landmine.”
Name : Ikoma Murasaki (狗駒 邑沙季)
Role : Main Character
A self-proclaimed ‘Russian ninja’, Murasaki’s actual heritage is shrouded in mystery.
She makes all sorts of claims about her ‘ninja skillz’, including her certification as a ‘master ninja’.
Her real forte is disguise, and she takes on a lot of missions involving stealth and infiltration; her calling-card is the .22 subsonic ammo she always uses. Alongside easily concealable weapons like small-bore automatic pistols and her kunai, or Japanese dagger, Murasaki’s fond of katana swords and rifles.
Her personality can be difficult to pin down; she rarely displays her true feelings in front of others, and obviously has fun saying weird things to confound other people. Even during the summer, she wears a long scarf around her neck to signal her ninja identity. At first glance, it looks like the kind of scarf a normal female student might wear, but it’s actually woven from a mix of aramid fiber and synthetic protein, making it both bullet-proof and fire resistant.
Murasaki’s been friends with Haruto since she was a young child, and loves him like an older brother. Or could her adoration for him be something more?
She ranks third in close-quarters combat, her ferocious speed losing out to Haruto’s skill and Rena’s raw strength.
“… Yeah. I just like ninjas, that’s all. I an be anywhere and everywhere.”
Now it is the second one and the plot become more interesting than before. Our new homeroom teacher, Arisaka-sensei, want to know more with her students so she do “learn” their job to understand them. Not only that, we can know more with our heroines, Fukami Rena, than in previous one. In this volume, Fukami Rena’s past, is the main point and we can see “more” action in here. Same like the previous, it is still kinetic and you can finish it in 6 hour with auto mode (default speed). If you want to know her then just read it, but if it is not your “favorite” then just drop it and wait for the next volume to release
