Scene 2: Look Out! Old Secrets and New!
The PCs reach Grandma's house without incident. She lets them in, but wastes as much time as possible by asking "So, is this your girlfriend?" of her grandson repeatedly, concentrating on Kiku, Kunikida's daughter (but pretty much any female PC will do). Once the PCs extricate themselves they can go search Yaegashi's old room, which Grandma has thoughtfully kept exactly the way he used to keep it. Grandma keeps showing up to bring the characters tea, tell the chosen girl what a catch Umeo is, and so on.
They find an old computer program, which Jun can get working with a little effort. It starts to run, and shows a perky, 15-year-old Momiji. "Hi! I'm Momiji! Which animal is on my underwear today!" A sequence of panties flash by before the mystified PCs until it settles on "Rhino Panties!!!". Before this can result in violence, a grenade crashes in through the window.
Mrs. Yaegashi's house is a large, two-story house with lots of rice-paper walls in the Tokyo suburbs. Yoshiki's old room has lots of computer books, computer parts, disks/CDROMs/optical storage/tape cartridges, etc.

Neat Things That Could Happen
Computer monitors make nice popping noises when
applied to people's heads.
Lots of computer media is usable as thrown weapons, or can be confused with "the" diskette.
People can get whacked through rice paper interior walls.
Grandma can go all Bruce Lee on the mooks.
Grandma can get endangered and held captive by Wolfgang.
Grandma can heckle Umeo about getting a girlfriend.
Wolfgang can drop a flash-bang and escape out a window to his waiting getaway car.
Finding the Bad Guys
The PCs can follow Wolfgang, if he escapes. He will high-tail it to the secret lab. The computer program from the disk (if accessed at the house or in transit) says that the Aragami are asleep, but being awakened by some external force. It gives a location in an underground lab belonging to the Daizan Corporation, and shows a very large disturbance happening very, very soon. It also locates the missing ex-TAC members inside the cherry tree in the park! The authorities, if contacted, "can't move without hard evidence" against Daizan Labs. Naturally it's up to the characters to stop this threat.
