In The Forest Hides a Light
Not only work on artificial intelligence, but also teleportation? It seemed the Kirijo Group was doing its best to stay ahead of the curve no matter what field it was, from the mundane everyday needs of Japan to the most cutting-edge of tech that would change society. "Interesting. Well, thank you, Dr. Stephen!" Omura answered with a cheerful smile, content with the response for now. That happy demeanor continued to radiate from him as he nodded to the young woman who introduced herself as their tour guide, "No need to apologize, Sako-sama. Your duties called for you to speak to the people; a tour group can wait when there's pressing matters at hand."
"Ah, and I'm Hisoka Omura, ma'am. Wonderful to meet you!"

That sounded like something out of a sci-fi story...Sarah thought to herself as she listened to the people talking around her. She didn't really have anything to contribute on the subject but all of it did sound very fascinating.
Introducing herself was however something she was good at. "I'm Sarah Nakamura! It's a pleasure to meet you!"
@Minerva @Yun Lee @Hida Tomonatsu
Nanako was the last student to step off the bus, yet worked her way to the front of the group after checking in with Kawakami.
"We are grateful for your time, Sako-sama. I'm sure that managing such a crisis is important. The work done here is important for the good of the nation. I am Nanako Shiori, an it is a pleasure to meet you," she said, introducing herself with a bow.

"Right. Off we go then." Makoto said, leading the group. You all would be led into the main hall of the building.“Oh, tour guides and stuff, yeah,” Junko said suddenly as she snapped back into reality. Her eyes widened slightly and she ran a hand through her less than well kept hair. “Tours are...cool and stuff, yeah. Let’s go look at some stuff. Sounds like a lot of fun.”
It was hard to tell if she was sarcastic with that almost monotone way of speaking.
"So, welcome to the Tokyo Diet. Sorry about the mess. It is split into six floors, and two meeting halls: The House of Councillors and the House of Representatives." She gestured to the building. "It was built in 1920-1936 after fifty years of debating n how the building should look, and was designed by Watanabe Fukuzo based on designs by German architects Wilhelm Böckmann and Hermann Ende." She said towards the building. She gestured to several paintings on the ceiling. "These were painted by art students rather than professional artists."
She looked at her watch and sighed. "You all were supposed to watch a session of the House of Representatives today, but as you saw, that's not happening."
"Did I say something wrong?" Doctor Zelenin asked, raising her eyebrow with a laugh. She tapped on a tablet for a moment and smiled. "Just let me know if you need help with anything. I'm the Study hall monitor today."Itsuki Akiyama

Itsuki grumbled something unintelligible under his breath before he properly responses.
"Fine... Just fine..." He muttered.
Had this only been a few years ago, there was a good chance he would have jumped ship, but times have changed since then... And besides, he wouldn't have much room to maneuver soon if he kept getting kicked out of every school he went to.
❝ Oh? Do tell. ❞ Kiseki rose an eyebrow at Bjorn's remark on sneaking them in. It didn't matter much to her, but if it meant not using the money pickpocketed from some poor classmate, she could put that money towards something else later down the line.

Andrew James (Andy/AJ)
Andy looked over at him with a skeptical eyebrow and he didn't know what to say to him. " Yeah, pretty sure that you didn't even teach me any of the trick that I know, I learned most of them back in the state." He would have moved out of way, but he wasn't quick enough to do that and he looked over at him. " Well, I would love for you to be an investor in my future endeavors, but you see, I like my investors to see my schemes and be involved before I give them a cut."
@Sark @Minerva @Gummi Bunnies @Chaos
Well, through whatever ways, legal or illegal, through line hopping and jumping into bathroom stalls strategically, you got through into Tokyo Skytree and movie."Now that... is actually an alright scam..." Bjorn hummed to himself, stroking his chin and beaming. "I'm proud to say that I taught you everything you know, lad." He reached over to A.J. and ruffled his hair with his abnormally large hands, laughed as he pushed his friend's head to the side. "Cut me in on the scheme, and maybe I'll let you consider me as... an investor in your future endeavors. How does that sound, short stuff?"
"Oh, I wouldn't dream of it," Bjorn smiled, wrapped his linked fingers behind his head and smiled a devious smile. "With any luck, I might be able to find us a way in without paying at all..."
@Gummi Bunnies @Yun Lee @Lucky
As you rode up the elevator, an advertisement on a screen played a preview for a future film that involved Medusa being defeated, and an ad for a concert by pop sensation Mashita Kanami, with a brief segment of a song by her.
You arrived and the elevator opened to...
A large man in a black suit.
"Tickets, please." He said, holding out his hand.
Looks like it wasn't going to be that easy.

Meanwhile, the movie would start in New York City. A mafia boss required a "cleaner" to clean up the corpses in his cover restaurant, only to get someone who he thought was the assassin responsible.
Jerry Youngman plays the villain.
