[OPENING CREDITS]

[TITLE CARD]


KEN and a GIRL with long, brown hair are sitting by a table, eating ice cream and laughing.

GIRL
Actually... There's something I wanted to talk to you about, Izumi...

KEN
What is it? Oh, is the music too loud?

GIRL moves closer and giggles.

VOICE
There you are!

Camera switches to a smug, red-haired boy.

KEN
Hoshi! 

Camera switches back to KEN. The girl is nowhere to be found.

HOSHI
I've been looking for you. Come on, I have something important to show you.

KEN
Are you... sure?

HOSHI stands still, expression unchanged.

KEN
Are you sure you want to show me something, and not the other way around?

HOSHI
What are you talking about? You can show me whatever you want later! Now come on!

The boys start walking through the grassy land. 

CUT TO:
A shot of a tall, gray building.

HOSHI
There we are! A suspicious facility! 

KEN
(smiling)
Oh! It really is suspicious! Let's get in!

By next shot, we see KEN already inside. He seems to be alone. 

KEN
I wonder where this corridor leads!

VOICE
Ken! What are you doing here?

A purple-haired WOMAN walks in.

KEN
Huh? Who are you, Miss?

WOMAN
That- Thet's not important. Come on, I'll take you to your parents.

CUT TO:
KEN and WOMAN walking into a room. WOMAN closes the door behind her.

KEN
Oh- There's no one here!

WOMAN
Ken... Do you really not know who I am?

KEN
Huh? Of course not!

WOMAN
(voice breaking)
Ken... Do you really not know what all of us had in common?

KEN turns around. In the place of the WOMAN stands a large mirror. We do not see KEN's reflection.

KEN (taking a step back)
No... 

VOICE
Big brother!

KEN turns his head. 

CUT TO: 
CARON and BARRICAN running towards KEN across a street. Camera switches back to KEN; he's now standing before a store window.

KEN
Caron! Why are you here?

CARON
Did you forget? We're supposed to go with mom and dad to a science museum!

CUT TO:
KEN, CARON, their MOTHER and FATHER walking around showcases.

MOTHER
Wow, incredible! Science has made such a progress.

KEN looks around, disinterested, until he notices a half-open door. He sneaks in with a mischievous look on his face.

CUT TO:
A room full of scattered pages, broken screens, disassembled machines. KEN crouches before an old desk. His is trembling.

KEN
What... is this?

A close-up of his hands. He is holding a photo of himself.

VOICE
Human body with Juralian strength. A love for humanity tainted with Juralian ruthlessness. The only weapon strong enough to fight the invasion... 

KEN turns around. In the door stands his FATHER.

FATHER
Juralians were stronger than us and masters of disguise. In the face of possible eradication, we had no choice. To destroy Juralians... we had to become Juralians ourselves. We attempted to combine with them many times... All our experiments failed. All but one.

KEN
What... are you saying, father?

FATHER
You know, Ken. Deep inside... you always knew.

KEN
No! It's a lie! CHARGING GO!

[TRANSFORMATION SEQUENCE]

KEN shoots FATHER, who falls down. MOTHER nd CARON run in.

MOTHER
Dear!

CARON
Big brother! What have you done?

KEN
Move away! That's not our father! It's a Juralian!

MOTHER
Ken! How can you say such things!

KEN
That's the only possibility! Otherwise...

KEN falls down. His entire body is rapidly switching between human and Juralian form.
