SFX: CREAK
2: They use things like magnets, screws, and cogs to move like real people.
3: Did you make them, Hyou-chan?
4: That's right!
5: Wow! So Hyou-chan actually does work. I thought he didn't have a job... yeah, me too!
6: Ah! It's Miki-chan!
7: Oh, I knew you'd be here, Yuka!
8: Hyou-chan showed us his mechanical puppets!
9: Maki-san, thank you for always looking after my sister.
10: Naaw, it's nothing!
11: Hahaha...
12: Oh, that's right.

6: I thought you were watching the shop!
7: (Hmph
8: you've got a customer.
9: A customer?
10: Someone came saying they want to meet with Mugen himself... so I came out to fetch you. Please come back when you can.
11: Hmmm....
12: I just hope they've only come to order some puppets.
SIGN: Mugen's Puppet Shop

13)
SFX: SKRITCH
1: Excuse me... you are Mugen, are you not? The famed puppeteer from Aizu...
2: A master of "Kuhou," who's also known as the Phantom Tengu...
3: No, he isn't.
4: Wh...
5: Who's there?!

14)
1: Hi...
2: Nice to meet you. I'm Mugen the 17th.
3: Um... then... who's this?
4: Hahaha. He looks pretty real, doesn't he?
5: That's the previous Mugen... in other words, my master. He passed away three years ago, so I made this replica of him.
6: [Kyoho Gang Boss' Estate]
7: The economy's been bad, lately...
8: and making puppets doesn't bring in as much as it used to.
9: But my ancestors used to work as shamans as a side job, so I thought I'd try and take after them.
10: Hahaha...
11: It's kind of embarrassing to say out loud.

15)
1: So you're the Mugen...
2: You look rather long...
3: Well, yes... um... so, are you my client?
4: That's right! My name is Takeichi!
5: I heard you can use some kind of spiritual art called kuhou.
6: I want you to use it to help me...
7: Kuhou is a type of mystical art...
8: The art of the beings known as "tengu." Kuhou allows humans to use the same abilities as these mythical creatures.
9: Tengu possess the following abilities: flight, superhuman strength, telekinesis, mind-reading, invisibility, clairvoyance, water-walking, razor wind, spirit waves, and illusionary arts.

16)
1: Now, even though I can use kuhou...
2: I can only use a certain number of the total abilities.
3: First, please tell me what the problem is.
4: To be honest, there are certain things I can and can't do...
5: Well then,
SFX: SLIP
6: look at me...
SFX: SHOOH
7: The doctors said it was ichthyosiform erythroderma, a rare skin disease.
8: But no matter how many skin transplants I tried getting, nothing worked... as you can see.

17)
1: I went to every hospital I could find. All the spiritualists I contacted eventually gave up.
2: But then I heard about you...
3: Looks like...
4: this is the result of some kind of grudge!
5: A grudge?!
6: You're suffering from a very powerful curse.
7: Can you think of anyone who may bear a grudge against you?
8: There are roughly two ways to curse people. The first is called "Enmi," where the curser crafts a voodoo doll of the person they want to curse. Here, they can either shoot it with an arrow (Soma style), crush it with a hammer (Tenjin style), or pound nails and needles into it (Needle style).
9: Straw dolls and other shrine-based curse rituals like the "Ushi no Koku-Mairi" were all derived from this.

18)
1: The second way is called "Kodoku," which is the art of cursing through vermin. This method involves putting dozens of animals that were classically thought of as vermin together in a box: poisonous snakes, dogs, foxes, lizards, praying mantises, centipedes, and locusts, to name a few.
2: After all the animals have killed each other and only one remains, that animal may be used to curse someone else. Separate curse chants exist for each type of animal.
3: So... what do you think, Housuke?
SIGN: Mugen
4: It's probably Kodoku... but the curser may have employed Enmi as well.
5: Hmm... I suppose you may be right.
6: What shall we do? If we tried to use "Reflect"(*)... we may end up killing the curser.
*: The art of reflecting a curse back on to the curser.
7: If he's been cursed that badly... the curser must have had a good reason.
8: I think we should try finding them and speaking with them...
9: Oh boy...
10: /The curser and the cursed...
11: /Which is the sadder one?

19)
1: Sis...
2: Wahh!!
3: You're going out again?
4: But it's so late...
5: Yuka...
6: It's alright. Don't worry.
7: I'll be right back.
8: /And besides...

20)
1: /It'll all end tonight...
SFX: KLAK
2: /The barrier's been broken!!
SFX: FWAP
3: Y...
4: You're...
5: So it was you...

21)
1: Maki-san...
2: Why are you here...
3: A man named Takeichi hired me.
4: It took me a lot of work to find this place, you know.
5: You must have...
SFX: FSSH...
6: some reason for doing this, right?
7: Can you tell me... about it?
8: /It happened two years ago...
SFX: BLAM

SFX: THUD
2: Tch! What kind of idiots would walk through a hunting ground like this?!

5: Yes sir.
SFX: CLICK
SFX: BLAM

23)
1: He created an alibi for himself and escaped the police investigation afterwards.
2: So I used the cursing art that my family's trained in, and...
3: I understand how you feel,
4: but this is a dangerous art. You should stop it at once!
5: Why?!
6: He's the bad one here...
7: Ah... hey!
SFX: GRAB
8: What--
9: Noo!
10: I knew it...
11: The vermin did this to you, correct?

24)
1: Kodoku is a frightening technique. At this rate, you'll die in the end too.
2: I don't care! As long as... as long as I can kill him...
3: What about Yuka-chan?
4: Ah...
5: No! Don't step into the configuration...
