Bus Gamer - TV Special 2 & 3 () 47m
We pick up at the cliffhanger the first episode left off at, and continue with the story of our three anti-heroes. Their lives resume their normal pace after the first match, and they start preparing for the next. Significant complications arise when Saitou picks up a gun during one competition, and then later combats a policewoman in a gaming arcade. Their next game occurs at a beer-garden (rooftop restaurnat), where they are surrounded by dozens of innocents, all of whom could potentially be their opponents, including the policewoman from earlier.
This concludes with the third episode. Not because the story ends... but because it's a teaser, the funds gave out, the ratings sucked, or some other unknown reason. It ends long before they get the billion yen prize, and before any major backgrounds or foreshadowing is completed. [gdh]
