Starter (スターター, Sutātā) is the 12th chapter of Clockwork Planet manga series.
Within Grid Mie, Strega, Amaretto, and Vermouth, of the Five Great Families, infiltrate a factory for routine surveillance, as the factory has been consuming energy and resources very rapidly. After clearing through the entire security brigade undetected, they happen upon a large empty room with documents for an unrevealed weapon, which shocks the spies greatly. A rogue AnchoR bursts from a nearby room and effortlessly decimates the cyborgs using Bloody Murder. Vermouth deduces that such incredible firepower must come only from an Initial Y-Series unit. As a final act of desperation, he sends an electromagnetic message to Marie, hoping she will understand the plea for help, as AnchoR finishes him off.
