Cardfight Coalition

[VBEX] Number 2: S-Force

Moshi moshi, police?

Security Force
A secret organization created to defeat evil across time and space. A young new member has been granted the important role of introducing them. Will she be able to successfully fulfill this role?


S-Force Chase

This is my mission target: “I:P Masquerena”. She got away from me the other day when I was about to apprehend her…


S-Force Showdown

Our missions consist of jumping around all sorts of eras and dimensions by making full use of the latest technologies, in order to prevent crimes and disasters that may occur there before they even happen! As for the members of the organization, there’s plenty of weir…plenty of unique people!

Commander “Justify” is a calm and collected leader. Our members are dispatched to different eras and dimensions under his strategic orders. However, I have never seen the commander’s face! “Professor”-san supervises the scientific division. He keeps remodeling our base as he pleases, so he’s constantly receiving complaints…Apparently there’s some connection between him and his mission target, (the) “PSY-Frame(s)”, but he seems to enjoy being dispatched.

S-Force Pla-Tina

Next, I’ll introduce some stylish, yet kinda kook…I mean, unique members of the Security Force! First there’s “Pla-Tina”-san. She’s a lady that can manipulate space and time, but since she keeps smiling even when she’s angry, she can be very scary! “Orrafist”-san is the ace of the “Security Force” with a high arrest rate which he takes pride in. Apparently he joined the “Security Force” to obtain information on the mission target “Time Thief” by any means necessary. “Edge Razor”-san is the samurai of the “Security Force” who’s almost as superb as “Orrafist”-san. Despite his appearance, he specializes in team missions! Also, I haven’t seen this person’s face either! Finally we have “Gravitino”-san A new member that has been scouted by commander “Justify” himself. He has a power to manipulate space and time similar to “Pla-Tina”-san, and apparently he also doubles as a researcher on that subject in the organization. What do you think? Aren’t we just a bunch weirdos?

S-Force Orrafist

S-Force Gravitino

Our base “Bridgehead” was developed based on “Pla-Tina”-nee-san’s power and it’s equipped with a function that lets us move through space and time! We also have tons of high-spec mecha like the mass-produced autonomous “Dog Tag”s that the professor developed!

S-Force Justify

Commentary from the VBEX: “Wears a power suit with a near futuristic look that is about 3 meters tall. Since he specializes in hand-to-hand combat, he does not have any weapons like a pistol or a sword” (3m is about 9.84 feet)

End of chapter.

Translation Note:
The term 執行 (shikkou) is used repeatedly in the lore. There’s a number of ways to translate this, but essentially it would be enforcing or carrying out a policy, law or dictate that has been established. If we assume the S-Force are some sort of time-space police, then they would be “executing” the law, but we don’t really know if they are a police force or just vigilantes. While some of them have a sense of justice, others may have their own personal motivations so “carrying out justice” may also not be entirely accurate. The term in question is also flexibly used as a noun, verb, and noun modifier, so we opted for more vague options like “mission” or “apprehend”. This flexible use is seen more in fiction, where the context shapes what the term entitles, but here, the context is very limited.
