(Third person P.O.V.)
After watching the news report on the TV in the hospital waiting room area, Yuuko immediately realized that she quickly needed to find a place where nobody could see her so that she could change into her outfit and become Giganta. Fortunately for her, that would not be too hard to do as people were now being evacuated from the hospital by all of the hospital's staff, and also by police and JSDF members to a safe location so that nobody would get hurt, or worse, killed by Professor Shioda shooting missiles from his giant robot, or from any other weapons that the robot might have.
Yuuko made her way out of the hospital, making sure not to be spotted or to run into any cops or JSDF members who were evacuating people out of the hospital and large parts of the city. After making her way outside, Yuuko then began to dart through crowds of people who were being evacuated, but after about ten minutes she made it out and found an empty alleyway with a corner in it which led to a wooden fence. This alleyway was perfect for her to go into to change into her outfit and become Giganta.
Yuuko quickly hid behind the corner with the wooden fence and then summoned her outfit. She ran out of the alleyway and into the middle of the empty street. Like before, she used her will activate her powers and become a giant, stopping at 75 feet tall. She began to make her way towards Professor Shioda's location, the ground shaking with every step.
Giganta soon spotted Professor Shioda's giant robot. The robot's exterior paint job was a black and red. It stood at 90 feet tall, had horns on its head, a visor where the eyes would be, Professor Shioda, who was piloting the giant robot was waiting for Giganta to show up
"Are you looking for me, Professor Shioda?! Well, here I am!" Giganta said loudly. The professor then turned his giant mecha around and saw Giganta with her arms crossed and a serious expression on her face.
"Well, if it isn't the giant bitch who locked me up!" Professor Shioda said, irritation evident in his voice.
"Yeah, and I'm going to lock you up again, because that is where you belong," Giganta proclaimed seriously.
"Oh, come now. Spare me the corny heroic speeches of yours so I can get to killing you, already, 'Not-So-Little-Miss-High-and-Mighty'!" Professor Shioda said, annoyed.
After Professor Shioda finished his sentence, he fired a blast from the laser cannon in his giant robot's visor, trying to catch Giganta off guard, but thankfully, Giganta avoided it by shrinking and then the growing back to 75 feet. She quickly picked up a few cars and threw them as hard as she could at Professor Shioda's giant robot in retaliation, almost as if they were shuriken.
The thrown cars hit the robot's visor dead center, destroying its laser cannon and camera vision system, making the machine stumble around blindly, waiting for its backup vision systems to kick in so that its pilot could fight correctly once more. Once it did, the Professor was met with a hard right hook to the head of his giant robot from Giganta which sent his robot reeling back, making it fall.
After the robot picked itself up to face Giganta once again, two giant double-edged sword blades that were built into the robot's arms came out. The Professor was intent on using the dual blades to cut the giantess down to size. The robot then charged at Giganta and tried to cut her with one of its blades, but Giganta managed to dodge just in time by, once again, shrinking and then getting behind Professor Shioda's robot before growing back to 75 feet and then ramming into the side of it with her shoulder as the robot tried to turn around and face her, making the Professor's robot fall into a condemned building that was scheduled for demolition. Professor Shioda's robot then knocked over a Space Needle-like building as it got back up to its feet.
Giganta then picked up the Space Needle-like building that Professor Shioda's robot had knocked over earlier in order to use at as a weapon. Thankfully, there were no people inside of it. After Professor Shioda's robot got back up, it then charged at Giganta again, trying to cut her with the blades on its arms, but this time, Giganta blocked the blades with the Space Needle-like building that she was holding.
After blocking the attack, Giganta then countered by striking the robot with the blunt side of the building, knocking the robot back a little. Then, Giganta went on the offensive and struck the robot with the building again, only for the robot to block the strike with one of its blades which caused both the building and the blade to shatter into several pieces from the impact.
With both the building and one of the robot's blades destroyed, Giganta went in for a punch and hit the robot right in the head. knocking it back a little. The robot then tried to use its other blade to cut Giganta with a downward swing, but she managed to dodge it by sidestepping. However, after she avoided the robot's blade, it then kicked her in the stomach, sending Giganta back a little bit, knocking the wind out of her. Giganta quickly recovered, but was still trying to regain the oxygen that was knocked out of her. She continued to stand her ground.
Having created some distance between the two of them, he then switched to using his robot's long range weaponry—a giant gun that was mounted on the robot's right arm, and a flamethrower that was built into the robot's left arm. The Professor then pointed his flamethrower at Giganta.
Giganta realized what the Professor's robot was pointing at her and quickly got out of the way just before the flames of the Professor's flamethrower could hit her by shrinking and running into a small alleyway. Fortunately for her, the flamethrower of Professor Shioda's giant robot seemed to need time to cool down before it could be used again, which was just enough time for her to think of a way to prevent the Professor from using this weapon.
"Okay, so his robot has a flamethrower, but like all flamethrowers, it needs to cool off every time he uses it, so it'll need around two minutes starting now. I'm safe for now, but I have to think of something to keep him from using that flamethrower, and quickly." Giganta thought to herself, holding her chin with her thumb and index finger as she quickly began to think of a plan.
Giganta then figured it out. That's it! All flamethrowers have fuel lines, and since I couldn't see one sticking out of the robot, that means that the fuel line must be in the robot's arm. I just have to open up the robot's left arm and cut the fuel line inside to completely disable it, but I'm going to need something sharp in order to cut my way into the robot's left arm and sever the fuel line. Giganta thought to herself as she used whatever time she had left to look for something that she could use to accomplish her task.
Giganta then spotted a large piece of debris from the abandoned building which was damaged earlier by Professor Shioda's giant robot when he first came out and demanded that she come out and face him.
Giganta then ran out of the alleyway and just in time as the Professor shot his flamethrower into the alleyway. She then made it to the large, sharp piece of debris, grew back to 75 feet tall, and picked it up. The debris was about the size of a bowie knife in her hand.
Giganta then rushed at Professor Shioda's Giant robot which tried to punch her, having to resort to another tactic as the professor waited for the flamethrower to cool down. Giganta dodged the punch, got behind the robot, and then grabbed its left arm, quickly placing the sharp edge of the piece of debris on the robot's elbow joint. She made a downward diagonal cut which, took off a little bit of the robot's elbow joint. The Professor turned his robot around and tried to throw her off, but she managed to break her fall by tumbling and rolling. She quickly retreated into an area with several buildings, making it very difficult, if not impossible, for the Professor to shoot his flamethrower at her directly.
Giganta then picked up some empty, damaged cars in her free hand and threw them in a different direction to trick the Professor into thinking that she was in the area where the sound was coming from. The cars all landed in an open, empty area. The Professor's robot picked up the sound of the thrown cars crashing into the ground, and the Professor turned his giant robot, firing his robot's flamethrower in the direction of the sound, but he only ended up wasting fuel having fired at nothing. Professor Shioda had to wait another two minutes for his robot's flamethrower to cool down, leaving him wide open.
Giganta then snuck up behind the robot and grabbed its left arm, cutting its elbow joint in the same way that she did the first time, taking off a little more of the elbow joint. The Professor then threw Giganta off his robot again, but just like before, she just tumbled and rolled to break her fall and went into an area full of buildings again, but this time, Professor Shioda caught onto her tactic and tried to follow her so that he wouldn't fall for the same trick for a third time in a row.
However, Giganta managed to give the Professor the slip by hiding under a large bridge that was just big enough for her to hide under.
The Professor searched for Giganta around every building that she could possibly use to hide behind, but he did not find her. Giganta then cautiously peered around the bridge that she was hiding under to see that Professor Shioda was looking for her in his giant robot, but was facing away from her hiding place, and had his robot's back turned to her.
Giganta then cautiously reached for the top of the bridge, picked up a car while being careful not to get spotted by Professor Shioda, then carefully snuck up behind the Professor's robot while its back was turned. Professor Shioda then turned his robot around and was met with a car that Giganta had thrown at his robot's head, catching him by surprise, allowing Giganta to quickly get behind his robot again, grab its left arm, and once again cut the robot's elbow joint.
The Professor's robot threw her off once again, but just like the first two times, she tumbled and rolled to break her fall. Professor Shioda became enraged and shot his flamethrower in every direction like a spray, hoping to hit Giganta, but she managed to run away and get out of range of the flames. The Professor continued to fire his flamethrower, but stopped before it overheated and, once again, had to wait for it to cool down.
Giganta then took advantage of the situation and charged at the Professor's robot. She jumped and tackled the robot, knocking it over and landing on top of it. She then quickly put the robot in a crucifix hold, holding the robot's left arm down with both of her arms, the robot's right arm down with her legs. Giganta then used the sharp piece of debris that she was holding like a saw and made a fourth cut to the robot's left elbow joint, which severed the fuel line of the robot's flamethrower.
After cutting the flamethrower's fuel line, Giganta could feel the robot attempting to break free, but it didn't matter because she had accomplished what she needed to do to take the robot's flamethrower out of the fight, so she released the hold and quickly moved out of harm's way.
As the robot got back up, it switched to its gun. The robot raised its right arm and tried to shoot Giganta as it was getting back up, but because it was getting back up to its feet, it wasn't able to aim correctly. Giganta quickly saw the robot try to point its left arm at her and immediately realized what it was. She quickly got out of the way before the robot fired the shot, causing the robot to miss.
Giganta was startled and breathing heavily, but she quickly calmed herself down, and took a brief moment to look around before noticing a large park nearby. She smirked. "Wow. It looks like you can't even hit a stationary target three feet in front of you." She stuck her tongue out to taunt him.
The professor angrily tried to shoot her again, but she ducked and rolled out of the way, landing close to the nearby park. She placed the sharp piece of debris that she was holding in the park, successfully hiding it so that she could reclaim it later. Having moved out of the way, the second shot that the Professor had fired at her ended up hitting a billboard that was right behind Giganta, making a hole in it.
"Grrrr! Just die already!" the Professor shouted angrily.
The professor then fired another shot at Giganta only for her to dodge it by shrinking and then running away, making it harder for the Professor to aim at her. The professor then fired another seven shots at her, but kept missing because she continued to run, and her small height made it even more difficult to hit her. Giganta then grew back to 75 feet tall, quickly grabbed the largest piece of the of the now-destroyed Space Needle-like building, and threw it at Professor Shioda's giant robot, forcing the professor to fire several shots at the large piece of debris that was coming at him, blasting it into small, harmless pieces that showered the [rofessor's robot.
"Well, professor, it looks like it's time to clean up your act," Giganta said, mocking the professor again.
"OH, JUST SHUT THE HELL UP ALREADY!" Professor Shioda shouted, full of rage as he tried to shoot her again, only for her to avoid the shot by, once again, shrinking. She then ran into the large nearby park from earlier where she hid the large sharp piece of debris, the professor firing several shots at her as she did so, but just like before, she was too small to hit, so the Professor only ended up hitting some trees.
Giganta then ran behind an nearby abandoned office building and grew back to 75 feet tall. At her giant size, the building only came up to about her stomach area, just beneath her chest. She picked up the building and threw it at Professor Shioda's giant robot, forcing the professor to once again take aim and shoot down what was coming right at him and his robot.
The professor fired several shots at the building, blasting it to small pieces of debris which showered his giant robot, momentarily distracting him. While the professor was distracted, Giganta picked up the large sharp piece of debris that she used earlier in the fight. She swung it at the gun with all of her might, destroying the debris, and bending the gun barrel so badly that, if Professor Shioda were to try to fire another shot from the gun, it would ricochet inside, which wouldn't end very well for the professor's giant robot.
Giganta then kicked the professor's robot away, creating some distance between them. By the time the professor had realized that the barrel had been bent, it was too late. The Professor pointed his gun and tried to shoot her again, only for the gun to explode due to the bullet having ricocheted inside the gun, leaving the arm intact, although he was only able to move the upper half.
"DAMMIT! YOU'RE GONNA PAY FOR THAT, YOU OVERSIZED WITCH!" Professor Shioda shouted furiously, having become enraged after losing his robot's gun. Professor Shioda switched to using the only weapon that his giant robot had left—that, of course, being the sword blade in its right arm.
The robot charged at Giganta and tried to cut her, but she managed to dodge it. However, after she dodged the blade, the professor quickly swung his robot's damaged left arm at her, trying to use it like a club. Giganta managed to dodge the arm, but was not able to react in time to another slash of the robot's arm blade, which wounded her upper arm just above the elbow just before she moved a away from the robot.
Professor Shioda then made his giant robot charge at Giganta again and again, trying to cut her with its arm blade only for her to dodge and make her way to the robot's side where she grabbed the robot's damaged left arm and pulled as hard as she could until she ripped it off of the robot. As soon as she ripped the damaged arm off of the professor's robot, it kicked her away, making her drop the arm in the process.
Giganta then quickly tried to get back up to her feet, but only managed to get up to one knee because Professor Shioda's giant robot had rushed in and was trying to stab her with his robot's arm blade, but she managed to grab the arm of the robot with both hands just in time and tried to keep the robot's arm blade from stabbing her. It was a deadly game of reverse tug of war.
"Well, my dear Giganta, it's been fun. You put up good fight, and I am very impressed with your effort, but I'm afraid that this is the part where you die. But, hey; who says that the fun has to end there? Since you made me spend so much of my time fighting against you, I think that I will have a little fun with this city and all of the people in it. It will be one hell of party, but it's just too bad that you won't be around for it. Don't worry. I will give all of the people of this city your regards.
"Oh, and as for that little friend of yours that you mentioned before in our last encounter, well, I don't know who that person is, but if I find out who this friend of yours is, I'll be sure to introduce myself to them and have plenty of fun with them in your absence, so don't worry my dear," Professor Shioda said to Giganta, taunting her.
Giganta became angered after hearing what Professor Shioda had just said to her. "You won't be doing any of that!" she said angrily, her expression becoming one of rage.
Giganta then grew another 25 feet as a result of her anger. As a result, Giganta was able to push, not just the robot's arm blade, but the entire robot back, sending the robot reeling backwards. Giganta, who got back up on her feet, now stood at 100 feet tall, making her slightly bigger then the Professor's giant robot.
"Ha! You think that making yourself just a little bit taller is going to make a difference? I'm still going to cut you down to size, and into little ribbons while I'm at it!" Professor Shioda said aggressively before charging at Giganta.
The professor tried to stab Giganta with his giant robot's arm blade only for Giganta to block the attack and then grab the arm in one smooth motion. She then used the robot's own momentum to pull it down just enough for her to throw her legs over the robot, pull its arm between her legs, and take it down to the ground, putting the robot into an armbar.
Giganta then pulled the robot's arm with all of her strength until she ripped the arm right off of the robot. Giganta then stood back up and dropped the robot's now-severed arm on the ground. Professor Shioda's giant robot lay on the ground, both armless and motionless.
Giganta, who had sustained a bit of damage during the fight, stood with one foot on the chest of the giant robot, once again victorious against Professor Atsuhiko Shioda. "It's all over, Professor Shioda. Now, come out with your hands up, because it's time for you to go back to prison!" Giganta said loudly, a stern expression on her face.
"I don't think so, Giganta, because it's not over yet!" Professor Shioda shouted, his tone one of irritation.
"Oh, really?" Giganta retorted.
"Yes, really. Don't you remember those missiles of mine? Well, you see, here's the thing. The reason why I didn't use them in our fight is because, while I did say that I had missiles, and that I would shoot them at heavily populated areas of the city, I never said that they were in my robot," Professor Shioda said confidently.
"Hold on. What exactly are you trying to say?" Giganta asked seriously.
"It's quite simple. What I'm trying to say, my dear, is that I have two remote controlled missile-launching vehicles parked on the outskirts of the city, armed and ready to fire deadly missiles, and they come equipped with a timer. When it hits zero, the missiles will be launched automatically into the heavily populated areas of the city, and I just started the timer now, which means that you have two choices Giganta.
"Your first choice is to bring me in and send me back to prison, but that will cost you the lives of innocent people in the city. Your second choice is to go to the outskirts of the city and stop the missiles, but that will allow me to escape. So, Giganta what's it going to be? Will you sacrifice the lives of innocent people just to bring me in, or save the people of the city and allow me to escape in the process? It's your choice. Oh, and you might want hurry up and make your choice quickly, because you only have an hour and thirty minutes, starting now," Professor Shioda said confidently, a cocky smile on his face.
After hearing this, Giganta had no choice but to stop the missiles and allow Professor Shioda to escape, but before going off to stop the missiles, Giganta said one last thing to say to Professor Shioda.
"You evil bastard! Next time we meet, I'll make sure that you not only go back behind bars, but stay there!" Giganta said angrily before heading off to the outskirts of the city to stop the missiles, her giant size shaking the ground with every step that she took. Giganta had to walk, because if she ran, the chances of her causing damage to the city would be higher.
Because of this, it took Giganta an hour and twenty five minutes to reach her destination and get to the missile launching vehicles, leaving her with only five minutes left to stop the missiles. She estimated that the two missile-launching vehicles could carry around sixteen missiles, making a total number of thirty two missiles that Giganta had to stop.
Giganta looked around, attempting to come up with a plan. She caught sight of a large nearby mountain with no people on it. Giganta then picked up the two missile-launching vehicles and pointed them at the large empty mountain. The timer then hit zero and the missiles fired from the two vehicles, but the missiles only hit the mountain, only damaging it a little.
After stopping the missiles, Giganta then crushed the two vehicles in her hands, dropped them on the ground, and stepped on the both of them so that they could not be used again. Giganta then headed back to the city, the ground shaking with every step that she took. The city was saved, but while Giganta had gone to stop the missiles, Professor Atsuhiko Shioda had escaped using a hidden escape ship that resembled a jet that launched from his giant robot.
"Mark my words, Giganta; the next time that we meet, I will have my revenge," Professor Shioda said coldly, doing little to hide the anger, hatred and contempt that he was displaying as he escaped, flying back to his secret hideout.
Three hours later...
Yuuko was walking through the hospital and saw that many of the patients who had been evacuated had returned to the hospital. Yuuko saw the doctor whom she had spoken with before. He was looking at some papers on a clipboard. She walked over to ask something very important.
"Excuse me, doctor, but as you can probably remember, I'm the friend of Akihisa Yoshii, and I was hoping that you could tell me if he is OK or not," Yuuko said worriedly.
"Yes, I remember. There is no need to worry. Your friend is OK. While that little spill he took off of his bed did knock him out, it didn't cause any serious damage. Your friend should be back in his bed right now. However I don't know if he has regained consciousness yet. While I was with him, he was still unconscious," the doctor said calmly.
"Would it be OK if I see him?" Yuuko asked, still sounding worried.
"Sure. Go right ahead. He is still in the same room as before," the doctor said, still calm and collected.
"OK. Thank so much," Yuuko said gratefully.
"You're welcome," the doctor said before going back to reading what was on his clipboard.
After Yuuko had arrived at Akihisa's hospital room, she entered and saw that Akihisa was in bed and was still unconscious. She then walked over to Akihisa's hospital bed and ran her hand over his forehead, brushing a lock of his hair away from his face, making him stir in his sleep. He slowly began to open his eyes. Once his eyes had fully opened, he looked around and saw Yuuko standing beside his hospital bed, looking back at him happily, a relieved smile on her face.
"Ah… Yuuko, what happened?" Akihisa asked.
"When the ground violently shook, you fell out of your hospital bed and hit your head on the floor and got knocked out. I put you back in your bed and the doctor from before took care of you," Yuuko informed him.
"Oh, OK, but why was the ground violently shaking to begin with?" Akihisa asked, completely confused.
"Oh. Well, believe it or not, that crazy mad scientist guy, Professor Atsuhiko Shioda, escaped from prison and went on rampage in a giant robot to draw out Giganta because he wanted revenge, but thankfully, Giganta stopped him," Yuuko explained, a bright smile on her face.
"Oh, OK. So, does that mean that Giganta sent Professor Atsuhiko Shioda back to prison?" Akihisa asked curiously.
"Unfortunately, no. He got away in an escape ship that he had launched from his giant robot to avoid capture, but don't worry. As long as Giganta is around to save the day, Professor Atsuhiko Shioda and other people just like him will always be brought to justice," Yuuko reassured him.
"Yeah, you're right. At least she stopped him from leveling the city and hurting innocent people, so let's just be glad THAT he's gone for now. Damn. It looks like I missed one hell of a fight," Akihisa said, his left hand on the back of his head.
"So, Yuuko, where were you when all of this was happening?" Akihisa asked, worried, but at the same time, curious.
"Oh. I was evacuated to a safe zone along with all of the other civilians," Yuuko said with a straight face, attempting to sound calm to avoid suspicion. "Why do you ask, Akihisa?" she asked curiously.
"Oh. Well, I asked because I was worried about you," Akihisa asked kindly, a small smile on his face.
"It's OK, Akihisa, but you should be more worried about yourself right now. I mean, what if something were to happen to you?" Yuuko asked worriedly.
"I know, but I worry about those I care deeply about more than I worry about myself," Akihisa said kindly, the smile never leaving his face.
"Oh, Akihisa. Why do you have to be such a sweetheart?" Yuuko asked. She looked away from him for a moment before turning back to him, allowing him to see the blush on her face.
"I don't know. I guess that's just how I am. By the way, Yuuko, you're very cute when you're blushing," Akihisa said nervously.
"Oh… Um… Well, thank you, Akihisa. You are very sweet," Yuuko said shyly, still blushing.
"Oh. Well, thank you, Yuuko. I think that you are very sweet, too," Akihisa said, beginning to blush, too. The two of them then looked at each other in a brief moment of silence before speaking to each other again.
"Well, it's starting to get late, so I should probably head home, now. I guess I'll see you later, Akihisa," Yuuko said, the blush never leaving her face.
"Oh, yeah. Of course. See you later, Yuuko," Akihisa said before Yuuko left his room.
It had been a month and a half and all of Akihisa's injuries had fully healed. He was being discharged from the hospital. Yuuko, who had arrived earlier that day to walk Akihisa out of the hospital, was having a friendly conversation with him.
"Hey, Yuuko, thanks again for walking me out of the hospital, and also for bringing me my school work and homework," Akihisa said cheerfully, smiling as they made their way out of the hospital.
"You're welcome, Akihisa and it's nothing, really. I'm just glad that you are OK and can finally leave the hospital," Yuuko said happily, winking at him as they kept walking.
"Well, it's something to me, and I want to thank you for everything that you've done for me, Yuuko, and before you say anything, I insist, and I won't take no for an answer," Akihisa said nervously, but not without a smile on his face as he rubbed the back of his head, his face having gone bright red.
"Oh, OK. Well, if you insist, then I guess I might as well accept the offer. So, if you don't mind me asking, how do you want to thank me, exactly?" Yuuko asked curiously, her nerves getting the better of her as she, too, began to blush.
"Oh, I was thinking that we could maybe hang out, just the two of us, and I could treat you to whatever you want," Akihisa said nervously.
"Wait! You mean like a date?!" Yuuko asked, surprised.
"WHAT?! No! I didn't mean it like that! I mean, I'm not saying that we should go out on dates together—I mean, unless you want to and you want to call my way of thanking you a date. I have no problems with us going out on a date if you don't have any problems," Akihisa said, frantically, his face turning redder with embarrassment.
Yuuko blushed and remained silent for a brief moment before responding.
"OK. I'll go out with you, Akihisa. There's no need for you to be so nervous, but let's keep this date between us. After all, we don't want certain people to find out, if you know what I mean," Yuuko said, her blush deepening.
Akihisa then put his hand on his chin and took a brief moment to think before responding, his blush disappearing.
"Oh. You mean Minami, Mizuki, your brother, and the FFF, right?" Akihisa asked curiously.
"Right. So, when do you want to go out?" Yuuko asked curiously, still blushing.
"Oh. Well, how about next Saturday in the early afternoon?" Akihisa asked, smiling, his blush reappearing as he spoke.
"That's perfect. Well, I guess I will see you later at school until, then," Yuuko said, smiling.
"Oh. OK. Yeah. See you later, Yuuko," Akihisa said happily, smiling and blushing. They both went their separate ways.
Back at the hideout of Professor Atsuhiko Shioda…
"Damn you, Giganta. I swear that, one day, I will have my revenge!" Professor Shioda ranted to himself before checking his computer.
He looked at his computer's recent history and saw that someone had used his computer to do some online shopping. He then started to yell at his henchman, his voice irritated.
"Dammit! How many times do I have to tell you not to mess with my computer?! Honestly, it's like I you're a child who doesn't listen!" Professor Shioda yelled, his henchman apologizing for using the professor's computer while he was still in prison.
