"Fire Starter" - The amazingly wonderful alien and that box-head Canti move into Naota's house. Strange things are happening in Mabase. And stranger things are happening to our young hero. Horns grow out of his head. Abnormalities discovered in his brain. City on fire!! Are these weird things linked with arson? An elementary school burned down 6 years ago, ya know? That was where Naota met Mamimi, the mysterious high school girl who doesn't make any sense. Mamimi starts to confuse Canti with the "god" in her video game. Like the game and the real world, the past and present start merging. Oh yeah! And another weird thing appears in Naota's head... (Description copied from the Synch-Point release.)
