Translation Corner #8
Keyword #8: Noise Outbreaks
After the Noise had been classified at the United Nations General Assembly, private research agencies began an investigation into the outbreak occurrence rates.
Taking central Tokyo's population density, state of public affairs and economic status as a base, it was calculated that throughout their entire lives the current residents of Tokyo had a smaller chance of encountering the Noise than being involved in an incident with a random (human) attacker.
In order to stem the flow of excessive information regarding the Noise, the credibility of the numbers have been left in doubt, so public perceptions about the number of Noise outbreaks are still relatively doubtful.Currently, the only information that is clear is that the number of outbreaks near the Lydian Private Music Academy is unusually high.
This was really hard to translate so I can't really guarantee it's accuracy - but if what I ended up with is true then Noise outbreaks still occur frequently even outside of Lydian academy. It makes me wonder if Fine has complete control over all the Noise - or if they still occur randomly, independent of her action.
