#3. Demons Laugh in the Women's Prison
SIGN: FEMALE PENITENTIARY
1: Get out!
2: Get out, I said!
1: Huh. So this is what a prison looks like.
2: What a dreary place...
3: No talking!
1: Akazawa Mie.
2: Arson and blackmail. 20 years old.
3: Katori Shizuka. Seven accounts of pickpocketing. 30 years old.
4: Hino Mika. Murder and assault. First offense. 22 years old.
1: Here, you all need to work hard at reforming yourselves so that you can go back out and be fruitful members of society.
2: Also, make sure to listen very carefully to your supervisors.
3: Tch! What are we, dogs? They think they can do whatever they want with us! W-wait a minute! Do you think that guy just now was the Warden?
4: The Warden?
5: No, that was the head of security. It's my third time in here, and I've never even seen the Warden.
6: Rumor has it that the Warden's a she.
7: Heh! A female warden, huh? She must be some woman.
1: How long are you two going to keep yapping for?!
3: Get in the shower and then change into your prison clothes!
4: If you think this is like school or the real world, then you're in for a world of pain!
6: Those who don't follow the rules here never get to see what's outside of these concrete walls ever again!
3: Aaahhh! They call this a shower?! It hurts!
5: Fuck! Those supervisors said they were going to turn up the water pressure to "sterilize" us... this is insane!
1: Everyone, get in the right corner! Cover your ears, or else the water will blow out your eardrums!
1: What's the name of that tall girl?
2: Hino Mika, sir. Murder and assault.
3: Hino Mika?!
4: Something wrong, sir?
5: Hmmm... when you get a chance, send her file up to my office.
6: Y-yes sir.
7: Something about her calmness.... isn't right.
1: [One month ago...
2: [82nd Precinct--
3: [A.K.A. The Crocodile Precinct
1: Show me that slide once more.
2: As I just explained, this is the central entrance to the Wakamoto Women's Prison.
3: There are approximately 350 prisoners and 86 staff members.
4: Now, I'd like to ask the both of you something. Have you ever heard of the "rear exit" to prison?
5: The rear exit?
6: Yes. In other words, when a prisoner dies and is released from prison.
7: The back exit is used to dispose of the dead, hence the phrase...
8: Boss, cut to the chase. You want us to investigate this prison because there's been a shitload of bodies going out through the rear exit, right?
9: Yes, I suppose that's the gist of it.
10: There are really that many people dying in there?
1: Yes... five last month, and already eight this month... apparently, they all died of disease.
2: Are you kidding me?!
3: Did the Legal Affairs Bureau run any investigations?
4: Yes. Several times, apparently. They even enhanced the medical facility in the prison, but still couldn't figure out why so many were dying.
5: And all five died of different diseases, so it was no epidemic.
6: I'd like to send one of you in on a false accusation so that you can bring back some data for us.
7: Alright, I'll go in first. This sounds like fun, doesn't it, Mika?!
8: Rin... where do you think you're going, a spa?! It won't be easy to escape from the prison, either.
9: Who's gonna escape?! I don't wanna leave until I crush every last one of 'em!
10: Alright then, I'll start with the paperwork.
11: I want you to write your reports in code on rocks and deliver one every three days. Got it?!
1: Boss, do you have any slides that show who the Warden is?
2: Unfortunately, we weren't able to get any.
3: All we know is that the warden is apparently a woman.
4: She probably keeps her face hidden to avoid retaliation from prisoners who have been released.
5: [Three days later...
6: [Rin was admitted to the prison for attempted murder...
7: [Every three days, she would climb up to a watch tower and hide a stone that she had written her report on. However, she only managed to do this three times... then, no more came. This left the precinct with no choice but to send in Mika...
1: /Something must have happened to Rin...
2: Hmm... that unusual way of walking... is that Rin?!
1: /I knew it!!
2: /She looks so withered... and there are leather straps binding her hands and neck...
3: /They must have found her sending a report out...
5: /Rin... I want to call out to you and give you some kind of reassurance, but if I do that, they'll find out we're connected somehow...
1: What's wrong? You were a lot more energetic a few days ago! Why can't you walk any faster?
2: What are you staggering for?!
3: I guess the fasting must've gotten to her.
4: Heheheh... I guess so.
5: Hey, where are you walking? We're headed this way!
6: Stupid cow! Listen to us for once!
1: /Oh, Rin...
2: Hey! Wake up!
3: You're not allowed to sleep on this nice a floor!
4: Wake uuuuup!
5: It's still too early for you to die, pig!
6: Hey! Wake up!
1: What the hell are you doing?!
3: Fucking rent-a-cop... are you really all just a bunch of pussies?! You took away my food and water, and you still can't fucking beat me...
SFX: HAA HAA
4: Ahh... uaaahhh!!
1: Oh no. Rin...
SFX: HAA HAA
1: Haha, look at her! She's about to keel over!
SFX: HAA HAA
2: Fuck her up!
4: Hah! That was easy! Now get her outta here!
1: What a pain in the ass...
2: Don't worry. She'll get a rear exit soon... heheheh...
3: Is that the one who's been causing all those problems?
3: Yes sir!
4: Her name is Kakura Rin. We put her in solitary confinement under suspicion that she had been communicating with the outside.
5: Did she confess?
6: Not yet. She's pretty tough, and we haven't been able to break her yet.
7: Mmm... I suppose you'll have to be rougher, then.
8: Get her out of here.
1: Hey, do you know a fat girl named Rin?
3: Yes you do. She's locked up in solitary confinement or something right now.
4: I just want to know why she was thrown in here.
5: I don't know!
1: I told you, I don't know!
2: And stop looking this way when you talk, would you? If a guard catches us, he'll give us hell!
3: She was in your cell, wasn't she? How could you not know her?
4: Just shut up already! If you want to know about Rin so bad, then ask her!
5: Over there! That girl under the tree. She knows everything.
6: She won't tell you for free, though. Try asking her on your break.
7: Alright... thank you.
8: Hey! No talking!
1: Kakura Rin?! Oh, that fatass klutz?!
2: I'm going to require a little payment if you want to know anything.
4: Heh! Cigarettes?! Hiding them in your hair... that isn't a bad idea.
5: So, apparently, Rin was communicating with someone on the outside... she was, you know, a spy or something!
6: Where did they put her?
7: I think they moved her from solitary confinement to one of the punishment cells underground.
8: Underground punishment cells?
1: Where are they?
2: Heheheh... gimme one more.
3: The entrance to the underground is in the left corner of the Block 4. The guard who watches it is an asshole, though.
4: He has a weak point, though... you-know-what!
5: If you want to get in to the punishment cells, you'll have to deal with him that way. Try going up to him after dinner... fufufufu...
2: Where are you going?!
3: Umm... I heard that Kakura Rin was moved here yesterday...
1: Yes, hello... My name is Oinuma, head of security at the Wakamoto Female Prison.
2: Yes. I'm calling about the investigation I requested yesterday...
3: What? Mmm...
5: Oh? I see...
6: Hmm... interesting.
8: Thank you very much...
2: How did it go?
3: She's suspicious, alright.
4: I tried investigating Hino Mika's assault case, but there was no actual record of it anywhere.
5: Heheheh... I'd imagine so.
6: I just tried investigating her murder case, and I found nothing but holes.
7: It's true that someone died, but the real murderer apparently committed suicide moments after and the case was closed.
8: Then is Hino Mika...
10: She's a spy that someone sent into our prison to snoop around!
1: We'll have to throw her in solitary confinement and get her to fess up, then.
2: No. For now, we'll just survey her and see what she does. Watch her, but don't let her know what's going on.
3: Then we'll catch her red-handed.
4: And don't tell anyone about this. Use the utmost caution when investigating her.
5: Understood, sir...
6: We need to find out who sent her here, and what they hoped to find...
7: Shall we inform the warden?
8: Yes. I'll take care of it.
9: Alright, free time's over! Line back up at your cells!
1: Line up!
2: 1, 2, 3! Cell 1 is accounted for!
3: Cell 2 is accounted for! Cell 3 is accounted for!
1: Don't move! We're going to take roll now!
2: Where's Cell 7?!
4: Wh-what's going on here?!
6: Looks like something happened.
1: What's wrong? What happened?
3: Hino is missing from Cell 7!
5: Hino Mika?!
6: That's right. Free time is over, and the bell rang, but...
7: She's a new one, so she may have gotten lost.
8: We need to find her at once.
9: No! I'll take care of this!
10: Shit... she isn't wasting any time, is she?
11: We have to find her!
1: Heheheh... who do you wanna see, huh?!
2: Kakura Rin? The girl he came here yesterday?
3: That fat piggy? They stuck her in punishment cell 4.
4: Cell 4... I hope they give her food and water.
5: Heheheheh... you know, you talk a lot like our warden does...
6: The pig was ordered to fast for three days. I heard she really did a number upstairs.
1: Heheheh... you know that information isn't free around here, right?!
2: Let me see her first.
3: Hell no!
4: But... free time is already over...
5: Heheheh... you're in my castle now. Those two-bit guards out there aren't stupid enough to come in here. They know that if they did, they'd just get all their asses kicked. By ME!
2: You've got some body...
SIGN: Fire Extinguisher
2: You reap what you sow!
1: Rin! Wake up!
2: Ahhh... ahhh...
3: M... Mika?!
SFX: HAA HAA
6: Mika... w... water...
SFX: HAA HAA
1: Th-thank you... Mika...
2: Just hang in there, alright?!
3: Someone's coming!
4: Mika! Hurry up and hide!
2: Sh-she must have done this!
3: Find her!
6: H-hey! Who did this to you?!
7: Ahhh... uuuu...
10: She must be in the punishment corridor!
1: Get out here!
2: Hino! We know you're hiding in here!
3: Show yourself, Hino!
1: Mika... you have to get away...
2: Dammit! Where did she g?!
4: Here she is! Inside this cell!
6: There she is!
SFX: BLAM BLAM
1: I got her!
4: Meddling bitch!
1: I knew you were the one behind all of this!
3: I'm going to take out one of your legs now, you feisty little whore, so you can never go scampering around my prison ever again!!
1: Ahhh... Warden!!
3: The mysterious warden really is a woman! But she looks far too young...
4: Warden! This one's name is Mika. She knocked out the guard to the punishment corridor and was trying to escape.
5: She also didn't appear during roll call...
1: I'm the one who knocked out that guard.
3: Wh-what did you say, Warden?!
4: Now, now, didn't you hear me? I'm the one who assaulted that guard, with the intent to kill him.
5: He tried to make a pass on ME, of all people...
6: Now, what is that woman's name? Hino? Send her back to her cell.
7: Y-yes, ma'am...
1: /I don't understand... why is the warden covering for me?
SIGN: CELL 7
1: Where have you been? You didn't come to the lights out roll call!
2: I went to go see someone.
3: What?! Wait, how did you get back here without getting punishment?
4: Punishment? Why would I get any punishment?
5: I only went to go see the Warden.
6: Huh? The Warden?!
7: You really met her?!
9: Th-this is my third time in here, and I've never even met her...
1: Perhaps you're just lucky...
2: So, what kind of an old lady is she?
3: Old lady?! She has a scary face, sure, but she's very young... about the same age as us.
4: Wh-what?! You think we're gonna believe that shit?!
5: Everyone around here calls her the old fox! And apparently she's worked here for 20 years...
6: Is that the truth?
7: Why would I lie? I'm not trying to brag, but I'm a three-time veteran!
8: But she didn't look that old at all.
1: She probably just paid a lot of money to have plastic surgery done on her whole body.
2: Or maybe she's found some secret to retaining a youthful appearance.
3: ...plastic surgery?
4: /More importantly...
5: /Why did she cover for me back there? I don't get it...
3: Stop working and come with me.
5: So... where are we going?
6: Just be quiet and follow me.
7: I'm going to have to blindfold you now.
1: Now we can continue.
2: You can remove the blindfold.
5: Wondering why I brought you here? I'll tell you...
6: I want you to pass water into my mouth, like you did in the punishment corridor yesterday.
1: What are you, deaf or something?!
2: Answer me!
1: What's wrong? Didn't you hear me?
2: Come over here...
3: I want you to pass this water into my mouth. Just like you did yesterday.
4: You may be able to get away with silence in the outside world, but it won't work here!
2: Time to find out more about you. Fufufu...
3: First of all, what kind of a relationship do you have with the fattie in the punishment cell? And you came into this prison to spy on us, didn't you?
1: Hino... I already know so much about you. I know you came in here on false charges...
2: Who sent you in here? You're trying to collect data on how we run things around here, aren't you?
3: I don't know what you're talking about.
4: All I did was kill someone. That's why I'm in here.
5: I know for a fact that you weren't the murderer!
6: If you don't want to tell me the truth, then I'll have to make you!
2: Fufufu! You think you can stop me with that? I'm still impressed, though... now I know for sure that you're a cut above the rest...
3: I'm going to take my time with you... I'm getting excited already! Fufufu...
4: It's fine if you don't want to spill anything. Just keep on resisting me. Fufufu...
5: /Either way, she'll cough up all her secrets along with her own blood!
6: Get down! You're not allowed to stand on that!
1: Hee hee hee... ho ho ho!
3: Wh-who's there?!
1: It's Oinuma, sir.
2: What is it? If you need something, you're just going to have to wait!
3: We've got an emergency situation!
4: There's been a riot in Block 5!
5: Wh-what?! A riot?!
6: I'm very sorry, ma'am! It seems that about twenty to thirty prisoners all rioted at once! If a chain reaction happens, we could be in big trouble!
7: Wh-what?! Then what are you wasting time coming to me for?!
8: Sorry... it was just all so sudden...
9: Did you expect them to give you a warning or something?! What kind of an idiot would do that?!
10: I'll get out there at once!
11: Th-thank you!
1: But before that, I want you to put her in a punishment cell!
2: Yes ma'am!
3: And don't forget to shackle her!
4: Y-yes ma'am!
5: What caused the riot?
6: Well... I'm not exactly sure, but a prisoner from Block 5 made a rear exit three days ago, right? That may be why...
1: Morse code! It's Mika!
2: Rin! They got me!
3: I knew it! Mika!!
4: The Warden knows everything! I'm no match for her!
5: That's bullshit! Are you hurt?
6: Yesterday, they finally started giving me food again. I got a pretty hot bod now, you know! I lost 10kg!
7: What about you?
8: She whipped me, just like a race horse!
9: What? They shackled you too? Shit...
1: This is so fucked up!
3: Why are we the ones who always have to do the dirty work for the precinct?! Why do I have to keep risking my life and staring death down the fucking nose every week?!
4: What's wrong, all of a sudden? This isn't like you, Rin...
5: The more dangerous, the more difficult a job... the better it pays. And besides, I heard you applied specificially to the Crocodile Precinct because you wanted to work there...
6: Yeah, I know. I know all that. But if we die here, it'll have all been for fucking naught!
7: But you should be prepared for that.
8: What about you, Mika?! Huh?
9: You came to the Crocodile Precinct for a reason, didn't you?!
10: It's just my hunch, but...
1: Hey... do you hear noise coming from above?!
2: We got off topic, so I forgot to mention it...
3: There's been a riot in Block 5!
4: A riot?!
1: Bring out the Warden, dammit!
2: I don't want to make a rear exit!
3: We're gonna burn this place down!
1: What are you standing around for? Bring out the tear gas!!
2: Um, if I may, ma'am... tear gas is very effective indoors, but when used outside, it doesn't work very well... And when taking the wind direction into account, hosing them down seems to be a better option...
3: Hah! You think water will be enough to stop them?!
4: Hurry up and prepare the tear gas! I don't care how you fire it at them, just do it! Suppress them quickly and without waste!
5: You're the head of security, aren't you?! Fight as if your entire career depended on it!
6: Y-yes, ma'am!
1: Fire! Fiiiiire!!
2: Ahhh! It's gas!
3: Tear gas!
4: Stop panicking! Just throw the shells back!
5: Yeah! Let's go!
6: We can't let those rent-a-cops beat us!
1: Watch out!
3: Fire! Keep firing!!
1: Waaahhh! The gas is coming this way!
2: Hack, wheeze!
3: B-bring out the masks! Aagghh! Hack, wheeze!
4: Fire! Fiiiire!
5: Get 'em!!
1: The noises are getting louder... I bet the guard to this area went out to help them.
2: Huh? You want to escape?!
3: We can't miss this chance...
4: But you're shackled! You can't move! How can you get out?
5: Oh... alright! Gotcha!
1: F... fire!
2: Did someone set the inside on fire?!
3: H-hey! #4! What are you doing in there?!
4: Ahhh! The sheets are on fire!
7: Try anything funny, and I'll snap your neck!
8: Huh? Wh-what's wrong?!
1: Ahh! Cut my tie!
2: If you want your partner to stay alive, then open the bars!
4: Hurry it up, or else his neck gets snapped!
6: Hell yeah!
7: Now open them all up! All of them!
8: Yeaaah! We're free!
1: Now it's your time to go into the slammer!
3: Mika! I did it!
4: Thanks, Rin!
5: Anytime! Can you move?!
6: I'm fine now.
7: Alright, now let's go up there and party!
1: Let's run up to the surface and join in on the riot!
2: It's time to have our revenge!!
2: Wait. We need to focus on...
4: Hey! Rin!
5: Get 'em!
1: Warden! Why did you want us to climb up into the tower?
2: Load up all the guns with real bullets!
3: Nothing else is going to cut it! We need real bullets here!!
4: What? Real bullets?!
5: B-but there are a ton of guards mixed in with the prisoners down there! It's too dangerous to use real bullets...
6: No excuses! Arm yourselves, NOW!!
7: Take aim!!
1: Doryaaaaahhh! Eat shit, you assholes!!
1: You little shit!!
2: I'm gonna fucking kill you!!
1: What are you waiting for?! Take aim!!
2: Y-yes ma'am!
3: And fire!!
1: Waaahh! They're shooting at us!
3: Kyaaa! Stoooop!
1: Kukukuku... fufufu!
2: Is she fucking crazy?! She's shooting at anything that moves!
3: Kyaaaa! Stop! Stoooop!
4: Stop! Warden, please! Stop!
6: Kyaaaa! Stoooop!
8: Give me the intercom.
9: Yes ma'am!
1: Attention all prisoners! You'd better not budge an inch! Anyone who does will be shot without warning!
2: And don't even think about talking back!
3: What is she doing...
5: Gather up all who took part in the riot and line them up in the courtyard.
6: Also, strip them all naked!
7: Y-yes ma'am!
1: Looks like the riot ended... but what stopped them?!
1: /I don't think I can make it to the exit door...
2: /Rin's out there too...
3: You all broke prison rules, and on top of that, you committed the cardinal sin of any prisoner -- you started a riot!
4: You are to stand there until the Warden orders you to leave! All those who move or speak without instruction will be dealt with!
1: What are you doing? Let me go!
3: Let me go, I said!
4: Let me goooo!
6: Special Cell 13
8: Nah, she's no good!
1: Hey! Is someone over there?!
1: What is this...
2: a torture room?!
