The Ranma ½ intro sequence #5 starts up, and then is cut short by the station symbol and an announcement.
"We interrupt this broadcast for a special news bulletin."
The symbol changes to a view from a helicopter. The sound of the rotor blades forces the reporter to yell so she could be heard over the noise. The camera is focused on Furinkan. A stream of students is pouring out the front doors, while gunshots are heard. Police cars are stationed around the school, with various news crews just behind them.
"We're here live at Furinkan High School, where a scene of mass violence has broken out."
Some gunshots are ring out and three students fall to the ground.
"Just minutes ago, three students, Mishka Jamnishmi, Gendo Yahoska, and Hikaru Gosunkugi, produced hidden weapons and proceeded to blast everything in sight. Currently they are somewhere in the third floor, and it is believed they have hostages."
The majority of the students have now gotten to cover. The police begin to open fire with tear gas.
"…We have just received word that they are by the south wing, facing the school swimming pool. We're now moving in for a closer look."
The view shifts around the school until it focuses in on a window directly above the Furinkan pool. Through it can be seen at least 7 people. Three are holding rifles and pistols. All three look scared and desperate, with haunted expressions. One of the three is also holding another student at gunpoint and screaming out the window.
"GET BACK! GET BACK OR THEY ALL DIE!"
The police begin to move back. One, a high-ranking officer, picks up a megaphone and starts talking.
"What do you want?"
"WHAT DO WE WANT? WE WANT SOME RESPECT. WE WANT WHAT YOU DENIED US! WE WANT REVENGE! WE WANT-"
A voice from inside the building yells, "LOTS OF WOMEN, AND FAST!"
All three turn and panic. Immediately, gunfire is heard coming from the room. "KILL THEM! KILL THEM ALL!"
The officer turns to a group who have the tear gas launchers. "Do it!" They immediately fire the gas cartridges into the building.
Screams rise from that room above the pool as gas begins to leak out. Bullets fly all over the place. Pings are heard as rounds hit the 'copter. The reporter screams.
"God! Get us out of here!"
As the camera zooms out, 7 people fall from the building to the pool below. The second they hit the water, there is a bright flash.
When the flash clears, everything from floor 2 on up of Furinkan high is flying wreckage. Pipes belch flames into the air on the remaining floor. There is a loud clang, and the sound of tearing metal.
"No! Oh God, NO!"
The last thing that is seen before static replaces the live feed is the ground rushing up to meet the camera. Screams are the last thing heard. Then static.
To be continued.
