#22. Not Even Demons are Safe!
1: Mable Iglesias, the vilest serial killer of our time...
2: This man has killed and eaten the flesh of over one hundred boys and girls, and now, at the Anzamalay Penitentiary in Mexico, he is about to be publicly executed...
1: Strangely enough, the families of Mable's victims have been invited to "watch" the execution as it happens...
2: Hurry up and kill him!!
4: Kill hiiim!
5: Give me back my daughter!
7: Go to Heeeell!!
8: Do you have anything left to say before you meet with the Lord?
9: Hey, Mr, Priest...
10: Do you have kids?
11: I have one daughter...
12: She's six.
1: Medium rare or well done? No, wait...
2: if she's only six, Mr. Priest...
3: then she'll taste the best if I eat her raaaaw!!!
4: chatter chatter
SFX: chatter chatter
crowd: Ohhhh! O, Lord... I don't believe it!
bottom: Medium rare = half-raw / Well done = cooked all the way through to the center
SFX: chatter chatter
6: Hurry up and send this demon to face the LORD!
2: I won't die! I won't die! I won't diiiiie!
3: Not yet! Not yeeeeeet!!!
7: Ohh, LORD...
1: And then, in front of all those people...
2: after a violent electric shock rocked the execution chamber, Mable Iglesias suddenly disappeared
3: without a trace...
4: The Mexican government hid the case... and one month passed...
SIGN: Hachi Park Station - Green Entrance
1: Makorin sure is late... I thought we were supposed to meet at 4? The movie's going to start!
3: Are you serious?!
4: What an idiot!
5: Yeah, go on, tell him!
SFX: GYAHAHAHAH DAHAHAHA
6: Geez... didn't anyone teach her cell phone manners?
1: Helloooooo?! Hello, Miyukyon?!
SHIRT: New Yorker
2: You're dropping out... huh?! What?! Hello?
3: I said, I can't hear you!!
5: Medium rare?
6: Or well done?
7: Ewww, gross...
8: What does that even mean?!
5: What is thaaat?!
6: It... it's horrible!
1: At that moment, I'm pretty sure I saw...
2: a creepy man's face, floating inside the flames...
3: Two hours later, at the Police Department - NII Building
4: This is the 13th case this month.
5: You really think the electrocution came from the cell phone breaking?
6: I hear that the testimony from the key witness is making this sound more like an actual case.
7: Like, indiscriminate terrorism or something... scary, huh?
8: That's why they were called here. To make sure it doesn't get out of hand.
1: They're called Kasukeshi...
2: They're a special Japanese counter-terrorism squad!
3: Tose guys?
4: they all look like they're minors, though... like they're in high school!
5: But I hear the selection process for Kasukeshi is extremely strict and grueling...
6: And people call them "modern ninjas," so I bet they're really something.
7: I see...
8: Anyway, now that they're here, that means we're off the hook!
9: You're right! I can finally go home for the first time in four days!
1: They're really making me wait... I feel like that's all I've been doing today.
2: I don't like these interrogation rooms... it makes me feel like I did something bad.
3: Ishida... Yumi...
4: Hey, Ryo, look at this!
5: This is the profile the witness drew.
PAPER: Ishida Yumi
1: He looks a lot like Mable Iglesias, that Mexican serial killer...
2: She's pretty good at drawing. Almost like a pro.
3: That reminds me...
4: Didn't you have an old friend named Ishida Yumi?
6: Mable was so infamous that even Japan did news reports on him. It's possible that this Ishida girl knew who he was.
7: But... the fact that Mable disappeared with his headgear on is something only a few people know.
8: Don't you think it's a high possibility that she really saw him?
1: "Medium rare or well done..." The latest victim, who managed to survive,
2: said she heard a creepy guy whisper that into her cell phone...
3: You think that was Mable?
4: This is just an idea, but...
5: What if right after Mable's body disappeared,
6: his soul...
7: or some kind of ectoplasm representation of his body remained in our world... invaded a telephone line, and somehow found its way to Japan?
8: All the Japanese victims so far had been boys and girls with big eyes under the age of 18... Mable's favorite type!
1: In that case,
2: that Ishida Yumi girl is also a possible target.
3: Maybe she'll be the next one to get cooked!
4: Don't you ever say that again!
5: Or else I'll rip your guts out...
1: THE END!!!
2: Otsuki, Ryo, we're moving out! Time to plan our next move! Got it?!
6: Oh no... I teleported to a bathroom!
7: I must have flown out from the interrogation room... this is bad!
2: N-no way...
1: Woah! I can't believe we'd meet in the bathroom like this! What a coincidence! Huh? But wait, does that mean... this is the boys' bathroom?!
2: This is the men's bathroom on the seventeenth floor of the NII building.
3: Oh no...
4: Uhh, that's right, I need to talk to the police. But the building was so big that I got lost...
5: I didn't sense anyone when I first entered this room... then she suddenly appeared. The rumors about her must be true...
6: Did you come to talk to the police too, Ryo?
7: No... I, uhh...
12: Oh, sorry, Ryo, this is from Makorin!
1: Hello, Makorin?
4: Medium rare...?
5: Or well done?
7: Get rid of that!
3: Hey, how about some mah jong tonight?
4: Sorry, but I've got a date tonight! Heheheh!
1: The lights went out...
1: He disappeared!
3: He's nothing but electricity... he has no body... how can I fight him?!
2: If you can really teleport...
4: Then teleport out of here this instant and run away,
5: while I completely my mission.
6: Ryo knows about my power?! How?! He wants me to run... but I can't control my power like that...
7: And we're finally together again... why do I have to leave already?! It's too sad!!
8: It's him...
9: He's the one who's standing between us!!
1: Have a taste of the lightning of God!!!
3: Ishida... disappeared!!
1: Wh-what are you...
4: That's what you get...
5: No one's going to get between me and Ryo...
6: Not even a demon!!
bottom: Ishida Yumi isn't floating here, she's just repeatedly teleporting into the same spot (Teleport Level 12)
1: I'm worried about Ishida...
2: I wasn't able to protect her...
3: What a disgrace!!
4: But Ryo, perhaps she teleported as a way to protect herself?
5: You mean you think she'll come back safely?
1: Ishida, you're all right!
2: Her hair is burnt, but she looks OK!
3: What? My hair?
4: Kyaaaah! What happened to my head?! This is horrible...
5: You don't remember why it happened?
7: Wait, Ryo, don't look at me!!
8: You're not allowed to look!
11: Can I have a moment to speak with Ishida?
12: No way! Absolutely not!
1: No member of Kasukeshi is allowed to share personal data with an outsider! It's an iron law!
2: Sure, Ryo, you can go talk to her. You're acquaintances, after all!
7: Can we talk for a bit?
8: I want to, b-but I'm too embarrassed...
9: Don't worry about it!
10: It was our first time seeing each other in eight months... and we only got to talk for a little bit, but I was so happy!
11: I'll have to fix my hair and go on a diet before we meet next... but I'm a little confused... what was Ryo's mission, anyway?
