So have my... Excuse me... I've managed to keep us on the air until now, but I'm out of tricks. It's time for me to sign off. This concludes our broadcast day.

Virtue's Last Reward

End or Beginning

End or Beginning

The newscaster kills herself.

The Suicidal Newscaster appears in the "End or Beginning" segment. A TV turns on in Akane Kurashiki's headquarters. She talks about the destruction caused by Radical-6, hopes for a day when the virus will disappear from Earth, and shoots herself in the head with a handgun on April 13, 2029.


  • It is unknown if she was infected with Radical-6. However, given that her speech on the live TV seems to be in real-time instead of slowed down, she likely wasn't.
