. Once again Yuta's past catches up with him in the present. A mansion has a man that keeps on returning to it after being killed. A mansion in which Yuta had worked at for awhile. The man that keeps on returning is also similar to a man he knew around the 1900s. The man looks exactly the same, except he was missing his left eye. And he keeps coming to the manor asking for a doll
The second story is called Mermaid's Mask
. Yuta and Mana stumble upon a boy who uses a "medicine
" to quickly heal his wounds. They find even more strangeness upon finding out about a kidnapping
.. or a fight over the custody
of the boy?
Hey, will I see you again?
Maybe. But when you're grown up... we may not recognize you. But you'll recognize us.
