Scene: Hikaru-chan walking through New York City.
Next scene: Madoka is logging into Internet using a Macintosh 500-series
Powerbook. She is using a generic modem program. The text of her screen
is, in English:
Welcome to the Inter Network. Yokohama JAPAN. (8:27 am on Thu, 22 Dec 1994)

Welcome to Internet provider WIN
(World-wide Information Network)
Next scene: She is typing: TAP! TAP! TAP! Suddenly her modem program inexplicably
changes to Netscape.
Back to Hikaru: She is running up the stairs to her apartment in New York.
Her feet make the same TAP! TAP! TAP! noise as Madoka's typing. For some
reason, she is going up the fire escape. She opens the door to her apartment
and says, "I'm home." She calls out "JG" which is the
name of her cat, and says, "Are you hungry?" (in English, written
in katakana). Her cat meows. She says, "Yes, yes. You like beef bowl,
right?" We see a poster of a woman in a sexy bikini-like outfit with
shear cloth over it, with the text ATLANTIS AUDITION.
Outside the apartment: Three sinister-looking people are outside. One's
foot makes the TAP! sound. "That's the apartment," says one, a
bearded hispanic-looking man. A dark-skinned woman says, "Yes, her
name is Hikaru Hiyama. She's the Japanese rich bitch we're looking for."
