Track 1The Paralyzing Wishing Well

 

Hey, did you see it?

One of the seven mysteries, the Paralyzing Wishing Well?

This well has been called the Wishing Well since a long time ago.

If you say your wish towards the bottom of the well, your wish will be granted.

Will you make a wish so that we can always be together?

Really? You make me so happy…

Hahaha…

 

[1:03]

I’ll grant that wish for you…

But in exchange… I’ll take you…

Once you’re paralyzed, you won’t be able to move.

Come with me… to the bottom of the well.

Don’t worry, I’ll move your body for you.

 

[1:43]

See? I’ll pull on your body parts using my snakes.

Your arms… your legs…

Let me entangle your body…

You feel so nice everywhere…

Now… let’s go.

What’s wrong? You look very scared.

We’re just going to fall into the well.

Your wish just came true, right? Since I’m with you.

Don’t worry. I’ll adore you in the darkness of the well.

Nobody will hear your screams, so nobody will get in our way.

You won’t be able to climb out, so you won’t escape either.

 

[3:01]

Hm? You’re so cute.

You look like you’re going to cry. You’ve turned very pale.

You’ll finally be fine. Let’s spend eternity together.

I’ll take care of you forever. Nothing will change.

Hahaha!

 

[3:59]

When a yokai and human fall in love, it can never be a happy ending.

If you want to resist this fate, come to me.

Hm? Are you awake? You look sleepy.

You can lean against me and sleepy…

But I think we’re getting off at the next station.

There’s quite a distance until the hotel. Can you walk?

You really are spaced out.

If you look so defenseless, I’m going to want to kiss you.

Haha! You’ve finally become your usual self. Walking around must’ve made you tired.

I mean, it’s me who made you walk so much.

 

[5:16]

School trips are so fun! Looking at souvenirs and eating different food…

It’s a bit lonely here, but that’s also what makes it special.

More importantly, I’m happy I can have you all to myself.

Let’s travel a bit tomorrow.

Apparently there’s a museum not so far away.

Are you still spaced out?

Yes, this school trip! All third years go on school trips at our school.

Now that you’ve gone up a grade, we can have more fun!

I’ve always transformed myself into a third year, but I’ve never had such a fun year.

I can go to events with you! And most of all, do you remember how you always called me Iriya senpai in front of others?

Now you call me without any honorifics! It’s great being in the same grade!

But… you’ll be graduating in half a year…

 

[6:30]

You’ll be leaving this school.

Well, I’ll… hm… what should I do…

I’ve been trapped in this school for 100 years, and there’s nothing I want to do outside…

I wish there isn’t such as thing as graduation.

Anyway, let’s talk about this later.

For now, let’s think about what we should tomorrow during our free time!

We need to look through the guidebooks later.

Hm? What is it? The guidebooks?

The Wishing Well? Yea, I think it was mentioned somewhere.

Wait a minute.

Hmm…. found it!

The Seven Mysteries of Nanagasumi Town.

One of the mysteries is the Paralyzing Wishing Well.

 

[7:51]

Your wish will be granted, but in exchange, you’ll be dragged into the well.

Hm? You saw this in your dream?

That’s… unsettling. You can never underestimate dreams.

I’m a bit bothered about something too.

Don’t worry! Here, I’ll stroke your head. Good girl.

Let’s go back to the hotel. The hot springs should wash away all your worries.

I’ve prepared a special room for you!

 

 

Track 2 Come to the Hot Springs

 

 

Please enter this room!

Are you surprised?

The hostess of this hotel let me rent this huge room! The view should be nice from the second floor.

Calm down! This happens often.

I’m a snake god, right? Humans have a tendency to make offerings to me.

I’ll be lonely alone, so you should join me.

I’ve got permission from the teacher, so don’t worry!

Haha. Why are you panicking now?

Why don’t you want to be in the same room?

I won’t eat you or anything. You’re so cute! There’s no need to run away.

Jokes aside, you should stay with me tonight.

 

[1:08]

Your dream has been bothering me a bit, and I feel a weak yokai power from this hotel.

It’s not strange for a yokai to be living in an old town, though.

But if something does happen to my cute girl, I need to be near you. Can I?

Now that I’ve got your consent, let’s relax in this big room!

Come here, on my lap.

What’s wrong? There’s no need to be embarrassed. Let me hug you from behind.

Good girl.

 

[2:06]

Trips are so fun. Nobody will bother us no matter how long I hug you for.

Other yokais are around at school, even at night, right?

But we’re all alone tonight.

Don’t you think sleeping together will be fun?

Why are you flustered? What were you thinking about? Tell me…

If you can’t tell me, maybe I’ll bite you.

Sorry, I’m bullying you too much.

Don’t worry, I won’t do anything inappropriate.

Anyway, we should go to the banquet room because it’s almost time to eat!

Oh yea, this room is small but it has an outdoor hot spring.

You should go in at night. The stars must look beautiful.

 

[3:26]

How’s the water?

Hm? What’s wrong?

Oh, did I surprise you because I’m in my snake form?

Hm? I wanted to join you.

Why not? The water’s cloudy and it’s dark and hard to see anything. There’s nothing to worry about!

If you’re just taking a dip with a snake, it’s fine, right?

Haha! Don’t look so troubled.

Here, can you put some hot water into this basin?

The hot spring is too deep for me while I’m in this form.

Thank you.

 

[4:08]

Well then, let’s see!

Outdoor hot springs are awesome!

Is it that rare for you to see a snake bathing?

I’m a snake god who controls water, you know? I like baths!

I’m really bad with the summer heat, but strangely, I’m good with hot water!

How about you? Have you recovered from your fatigue?

That’s great!

But… this is difficult for me to say, but…

I knew it. It showed up.

Don’t panic. I didn’t think it would show itself from inside the hot spring though!

It’s gonna attack!

Haha!

 

[5:20]

How impolite! I won’t forgive you if you lay your hands on my cute girl.

It’s gone.

Are you okay?

I’m glad I stayed with you just in case.

That wasn’t a ghost. It’s an illusion caused by yokai power.

Basically, someone’s trying to scare you.

I didn’t really think it would actually do it, though.

I’ll need to investigate this hotel.

 

 

Track 3More and More Traps

 

 

Yea, it looks like everyone’s asleep.

The corridor lights have been turned off and it’s pitch black.

We can walk around without being scolded.

So… are you really coming with me?

You don’t need to worry about me.

You even brought a backpack with you. Do you have some yokai defeating tools in there?

You’re so cute.

I guess I’ll be too worried to let you stay alone in your room.

Fine. I’ll protect you, so follow me and don’t stray.

Let’s investigate the hotel building.

We need to find the one who tried to scare you with that ghost.

 

[0:57]

I want to sleep soundly with you as soon as I can, too!

It’s here…

I didn’t feel it during the day, but yokai power is seeping from here.

Entry prohibited, huh?

It’s open now.

I feel bad for the hotel staff, but we’ll have to go in.

This is…

A well inside the room?

I thought they don’t use well water in this town anymore.

Yea… this is most probably the wishing well. I even feel the yokai power from inside.

Maybe something’s living inside.

Don’t worry. If it tries to harm you, I’ll bite it into bits.

 

[2:21]

It’s… not an earthquake, is it?

Why is the well shaking?

Watch out! Ow!

My scales are going to burn!

Are you okay?

Phew… why did hot water spew out from the well?

It disappeared?! Damn, the well itself was a yokai!

I can’t let it attack other humans.

 

[2:59]

Let’s go after it!

Be careful, it’s dark.

This is the big bathing room.

We didn’t use it because we used the bath in our room.

It’s not in this changing room.

Hm? The door leads to a hot spring? Maybe it’s in there, or…

There’s a room over there.

 

[3:44]

I feel yokai power. It’s in here.

I’m going to open it.

Huh? Nothing’s here.

I’m sure I felt yokai power just now.

Damn!

It’s hot… What’s going on?

What just started?!

The sauna?! That’s… the really hot room, right?

This is bad… I’m really weak when it comes to heat.

 

[4:31]

I need to get out of here!

It’s no use! It’s sealed with yokai power.

Stand back, I’m going to blow it away.

It’s too hot…

I can’t… use my power…

It’s getting hotter and hotter…

At this rate…

If only I had even a bit of water…

What are you doing…?

 

[5:23]

Canned juice? Did you buy it during free time?

Thank you. It’ll be a bit better… if I drink it.

I drank the whole can… but I still feel a bit dizzy.

Huh? Was that… coke?

Hahaha.

 

[6:14]

You’re a good girl. You bought my favorite.

I love you so much I don’t want to part from you.

Your skin is so cool and nice…

Hmm? You want to leave this place?

Can’t be helped then…

Say please!

I want you to ask me cutely.

Hahahha. So cute!

I’ll grant your wish!

 

[7:08]

I can blow away this door easily! There!

I blew it into smithereens!

It looks so cool outside, but… I’m so dizzy… I can’t walk.

Hm? Hmmm…

Maybe I’m not so alright!

So… can you… cool me down?

 

[7:45]

You’re so nice and cool…

Huh? I want you to carry me like this.

Please walk…. I’ll stick to you like this.

Hahahaha.

Your back is so nice and cool.

Even your arm…

Stroking your elbow to your shoulder… feels so nice…

 

[8:24]

Hmmm? Does it tickle?

But I’m more vulnerable to temperature differences than you, so I want human skin…

Can I wrap my snakes around you too?

I’m just so hot…

I’ve entangled myself with you.

Humans are so soft…

It makes me want to bite you. You look delicious.

Hm? Your body temperature is rising too…

Come on… let’s leave…

 

[9:25]

You’re starting to sweat on your neck.

My tongue is cold… so if I do this…

Right? It feels nice and cool. How does it feel?

I’ll cool you down.

You don’t need to be polite!

I mean, your breath is getting rapid and your face is all red.

I need to cool it down.

I’ll lick you… starting from your ankles…

Hm? You can walk even if I don’t cool you down?

We’re almost outside…

 

[10:21]

So cool…

Good work. Are you okay?

I’m okay.

You saved me.

This is… you know…

I need to thank you…

Your eyes are all watery and your cheeks are red. It must’ve been very hot.

I’ll… cool you down…

Your arms and legs… are also hot…

I’ll kiss everywhere that’s hot…

 

[11:19]

No… you don’t have the right to refuse.

All my snakes have cold tongues, so it’ll feel nice.

Come on… plead with me.

What do you want me to do?

You can’t say it?

Then you don’t need to… I’ll grant your wish anyway.

The snake by your arm will lick you from your wrist to your shoulder.

I’ll slowly take away the heat from your back and legs…It’s nice and cool, right?

Even you ears are red… how cute…

Huh? Heyyyyyyyy.

Geez…

Don’t fall asleep here! You’ll catch a cold.

But… I’m… sleepy too…

 

 

Track 4If You Fall, You Can’t Come Back

 

 

What a shame… just when I thought we managed to meet.

If only that snake wasn’t there, I would’ve been able to hear your wish.

Don’t be so scared. I just want to fulfill your wish.

That’s what a wishing well is supposed to do.

That’s right. I’m the wishing well.

I’m just talking to you by borrowing that snake’s body.

This is the most effective way, isn’t it? To be pressured by the one you love?

You won’t be able to resist if this snake lunges at you, right?

That’s why you’ll meet a tragic end.

If you don’t want that, make a wish.

 

[1:22]

Say you want to be happy. Okay?

Hahaha.

You still don’t understand?

Fine… I’ll tell you what this snake wants to do to you.

Let’s live together forever.

Yokais and humans… can never live together.

So… let me take away your time.

You won’t be able to live as a human anymore.

And then you can come with me to where I belong.

 

[2:30]

Good morning. You look pale. Are you okay?

It’s morning. Can you get up?

It looks like the well got away… but I don’t really remember what happened yesterday.

When I came to, we were on the floor of the big bathing room.I came back to the room before the humans can find us.

What happened… after we entered the sauna?

Anyway… I underestimated it.

For a snake god to… fail in capturing a well.

That yokai probably won’t show itself until it’s night.

We can leave it, but…

 

[3:36]

Hm?

Um… Do you think I’ll let you go alone?

What? That yokai… is calling you?

It was calling you inside the train too, right?

A person’s wish is full of his feelings.

Some yokais take advantage of that to do mischievous things.

Especially after bakus, nightmare-eating yokais, started decreasing.

 

[4:15]

If the well is trying to lure you, it must have some purpose.

I don’t want you to go knowing its a trap, but…

Okay. You’ll go see the wishing well alone.

But I’ll… follow you quietly.

 

[4:50]

Be careful. I’m possessing you, but the well won’t see me.

We don’t know what it’ll do to you.

Well, if it does do something, I’ll punish it.

Anyway, you’ve become very courageous compared to the first time I met you.

Humans can change so quickly.

Sorry, that was nothing.

We’re here.

Now… we’re at the well.

Try saying your wish.

 

[5:45]

That’s… your wish?

You want to… be happy with me?

What a sinful wish…

It reacted!

It’s coming!

I was waiting for you. You finally came.

I’ll grant your wish, but in exchange, I’ll take you.

 

[6:25]

It’s going to drag you in!

You won’t be able to escape from those arms.

Your body wont’ move, right?

Now… come… to the end you wished for!

I won’t let it. Leave it to me!

Well yokai! How are you try to take my girl away from me!

Snake god?! Where did you come from?!

I’m the only one who’s allowed to touch her!

 

[7:13]

Huh? A newt? That’s what it is?

Wait!

I’ve got you.

You’re lucky the snakes didn’t swallow you whole.

If you resist, I might accidentally stab you with my fangs.

Are you okay?

As you can see… it was a newt yokai.

What do you want to do with this?

Should I let one of my snakes swallow it?

You’re too kind. I won’t eat it then.

You can transform right?

Tell us why you, the protector of the well, did something so mischievous?

I thought the woman was alone… I didn’t think the snake god was here too.

You’re quite scared. I’m surprised you managed to transform.

So, why did a weakling like you try to get her?

 

[8:44]

Because she has a strong wish.

What’s wrong with granting people’s wishes? I’m a wishing well.

It’s not wrong, but your method is not particularly praiseworthy… dragging people into the well like that.

I’d say you have bad taste.

Method? Hahaha!

What?

I used to live a humble life. I granted people’s wishes and helped them.

But a hundred years ago… there was a water disaster in this town.

Ever since then, the water became dirty and the well couldn’t be used anymore.

Then the humans started getting creeped out by the abandoned well, and started their rumors.

The dead who fell into the well will climb out at midnight.

 

[9:48]

If the well grants your wish, it’ll drag you in.

These rumors… twisted me.

So… they twisted you… from a protecting god to a terrifying story.

That’s right. I’m just living as people want me to live.

No matter how much I want to help humans, I can… I can only do it this way!

Steam?!

 

[10:35]

It’s gone!

It said what it wanted to say and escaped.

A fallen protecting god… that became a bad yokai… huh?

 

 

Track 5I Was Always Scared

 

 

You can’t sleep?

Me too.

When that well spoke about itself, it reminded me of my past.

As you know, I used to be a protector of the village.

I protected people and the crops from water disasters, and made it rain when they needed it.

But one day someone must have started a rumor that I’m a monster.

People started fearing and hating me.

 

[1:00]

I started to hate myself. That’s how I became yamata-no-orochi.

Yokais cannot go against human thoughts.

If one person changes their thoughts, we can become twisted.

There’s no way a person’s heart will always be the same.

Don’t worry. I’m not upset.

It’s just…

Hey… you almost got dragged in, right?

When I saw that, I thought…

I should have dragged you in first.

 

[2:13]

I’m not joking. You’ll graduate this year.

Have you thought about what will happen after that?

I live in the school. You came to school.

We could meet without any problems because you had to come to school.

But from now on it will be different. There won’t be anything obliging us to meet at school.

Human hearts change easily. That’s why I became scared of the passing time…

Of you… forgetting and leaving me.

But when I saw that, I realized that I should just prevent you from changing.

 

[3:19]

Hey… do you want to stop time and live forever with me at school?

You’ll spend the same day over and over at school.

Even if you won’t be a human anymore, I’ll still love you.

So… come with me to where I belong.

What’s wrong? You don’t need to be scared. I’ll take good care of you.

Good for you! Your wish has been granted.

 

[4:06]

Throw away your life as a human and live with me for hundreds of years.

But you’re shaking. Are you sure you don’t mind being dragged in?

If we make a vow, you won’t come back anymore.

I want to make you fall… so far… that you won’t be able to come back.

Inside the deep… deep well.

You’ll… grant my wish, right?

Even if you can’t live as a human anymore.

If you accept this, you’ll face a horrifying consequence.

Resist him, like you did in your dream. Now hurry…

What’s your reply?

 

[5:04]

What…? Why?

You’re supposed to be scared! Not being able to live as a human should be tragic for you!

You understand?! You won’t be able to be with your friends anymore. You’ll lose every part of your lifestyle.

You still don’t mind?

How… can you nod like that?

That’s your reason?

You’ll be fine… because I’ll be there?

You won’t be scared as… long as I’m there?

As long as I’m there… even if everything else changes…

 

[6:17]

I’m sorry for testing you like that. I’m sorry.

I don’t intend to drag you in to myself.

I just… wanted to get rid of my doubt.

I was made into a monster because of selfish thoughts.

Because of that… I even hurt you.

That’s why I’m so scared of changing.

But… humans change.

You keep moving forward in time. I was always scared that you’ll be out of my reach one day.

But now I’m finally satisfied.

 

[7:24]

I’m the same. I’ll be okay as long as you’re here. As long as I’m with you, I’m not scared of
anything.

No matter what happens, no matter what changes, my feelings won’t change.

I won’t let anyone change them. No matter what.

Yea, I won’t doubt anymore.

I took a long road, but…

Hey, how long are you going to possess her for?

How did you know?!

I knew it!

 

[8:26]

I just thought you might be there. You’re good at hiding.

You were trying to get in our way, right?

That’s why you tried to lead her to the well.

Unfortunately, she’s not that weak.

I won’t let her, anyway.

Don’t be scared… I won’t swallow you whole.

More importantly, Well, what is your wish?

Do you want to be who you used to be?

Do you want people to love you?

 

[9:16]

I can grant your wish for you.

I didn’t intend to get involved in your problems, but I can’t leave you all twisted like that.

Now that my troubles are gone, I’m not scared anymore.

To change something, to fight back, to move forward…

I’m not scared of these things anymore.

So let’s rewrite the Mystery of the Wishing Well.

 

 

Track 6Making a Vow of the Red Thread in the Rain

 

 

It’s exactly Ushimitsudoki.

The bell really did ring. If what the well said is true, we can go outside now.

It’s… not the hotel corridor.

There’s just grass.

I wonder where we are.

We definitely got sent here by yokai power, but he said that he wanted me to leave the room and make it rain, when I hear the bell.

I don’t know why the well asked for that, but if that can make him happy, I’ll do it.

 

[1:09]

He said the well couldn’t be used anymore because of a water disaster.

Maybe he wants me to purify the water here, although there’s no guarantee the humans will use the well again.

Let’s believe in a miracle and do everything we can do.

Come here, rain clouds!

I’ll finally be showing off my true powers!

The dirt in the water will clear if we wait.

 

[1:56]

Oh, but I can’t let you get wet. Come here.

Can I talk until the rain seeps into the ground?

Snakes are quite cowardly.

I was always troubled about what I should do once you leave school.

Yokais can only live as humans imagine them.

I didn’t know if I was worthy to take your hand, even if I’m like that.

 

[2:48]

But I won’t doubt anymore. No matter what people say, I’m still me.

I’m the snake god who fell in love with you.

No matter what happens, no matter how twisted my heart gets or my form change… and no matter

how much time passes, I will continue to love you.

Nobody can take that away.

No matter what people say, I will make you happy.

So please give me your all.

 

[3:49]

As my wife.

Will you grant my wish?

Yes! I promise I’ll make you happy!

My wish finally came true!

Don’t cry. When you cry with happiness, it make me want to cry too.

 

[4:43]

Your clothes are getting wet.

How strange… the rain should be cold, but somehow it feels warm.

You don’t want to get cold though. Let’s go into the hot spring when we’re back in the hotel.

After all, we’re husband and wife now.

I want to take a nice, long dip.

You look cute when you’re troubled too.

Hey…

 

[5:24]

Can we make a vow? Close your eyes.

You will be mine, and I will be yours.

I vow that we won’t ever be taken apart.

 

[6:19]

Huh? Why are we lying down here?

Good morning. We’re in… the big bathing room? Why are we here?

Customers are coming!

No, maybe I should erase their memory once they’re here.

The well!

Why is the well in the bathing room?

Let’s hide behind it. Come!

 

[7:12]

Oh no… how should we get out.

I thought it’s only our school that’s here.

Why is the hotel so popular suddenly?

The signboard?

This hot spring uses Nanagasumi’s well water, a specialty of this town.

The well water bring you good luck.

Well water?! I thought people didn’t use it anymore.

Oh! I see…! That well… it can’t be underestimated.

 

[8:03]

We were sent back in time with that bell sound.

Shhh! They’ll find us!

I’m surprised too, but we were sent back in time because of the well’s strong feelings about the past.

Because I purified the water in the town, it’s really popular now.

Why couldn’t he just explain it to us first?

This well remembers nothing about us.

“Welcome”?! Do you remember what you did to us?!

 

[8:51]

Oh well. It looks like it’s having fun.

Hey, Well… no… Protector Well, no matter what happens, no matter how twisted your heart

becomes, no matter how much your form changes, live your life.

No matter what people say, you’re you.

That’s a good answer!

 

 

Track 7The Paralyzing Wishing Well

 

 

Hey, did you see it?

The moment one of the seven mysteries, the Paralyzing Wishing Well, was rewritten?

They let us off while we’re still in town!

We can enjoy going home together too!

The trip doesn’t end until we arrive home.

It was such a fun trip. We went in the hot spring together, bought souvenirs, and even helped a yokai!

The Paralyzing Wishing Well:

One day, a woman who made a wish to a well became paralyzed and had a dream.

 

[1:06]

“If you mix the well water into the hot spring, your wish will come true.”

When she did as she was told, her wish really became true.

From that day on, the well water was known as the Wish-granting Well Water, and attracted many tourists.

As expected of a protecting god! I’m sure the well won’t feel lonely now that there are so many tourists!

I realized during this trip that even though yokais are born from people’s thoughts and can only live as they are imagined, but I want to have a strong will and live by your side.

So that I can make you happy. Do you think my wish will be granted?

Hahaha! I’m glad you’ve given me your approval!

By the way, we’ll be on this train until the last stop, so you can lean against me.

 

[2:30]

Please go ahead. There’s no need to be polite.

We couldn’t relax at night because we were trying to solve that mystery, right?

So let’s make up for it.

Not by sleeping… but by loving.

Oh, I prevented people from going on this train, so we’ll be alone.

We’ll have about an hour, so I can adore you all I want.

Your scared face is so charming!

 

[3:13]

It makes me want to do things to you.

Brace yourself… because you’re already my wife.

I’ll fill you with you with happiness.

My feelings are for you only.

Hello! I’m Shinnosuke Tachibana, your ear-lover.

I’ve come back!

I’m Tachibana, acting as Iriya in Yugen Romantica Hatenkou.

Thank you for your support.

Is this my third recording? I didn’t think I’ll have three!

I’m having a lot of fun with this series.

Most of Rejet’s stories end with two discs, so a third disc is quite rare.

It must mean that you encouraged us a lot!

 

[0:59]

I realized the story becomes better and better with this Yugen Romantica series! Hahaha!

This is a situation CD, so at the start there was more possessing and more… kind of “sexual”

scenes. Like kissing and licking…

But in this CD I realized I didn’t kiss so much!

I thought this story was really interesting!

I think Rejet’s stories can be quite long, but this was perfect. This story was the perfect length.

Really!

 

[1:55]

It was really fun in many ways.

Apparently there’s some questions…

Hatenko? Hatenko refers to things like doing something people have never done before.

It sounds wild, but that’s not necessarily true. It’s just something new.

Something that nobody has ever done before.

I suddenly remembered last time that I used to watch the Wednesday special, “Kawaguchi Hiroshi Tankentai.”

Do any of you know this? You do? You do? You’re revealing your age, you know.

 

[2:44]

They have DVDs of this series now. It’s really fun and interested!

It’s something like this. Kawaguchi Hiroshi would go and find a man-eating tiger.

 

[3:05]

At the end, he finds out that the tiger is merely a pet! Like a circus tiger.

There’s so much to laugh about! It was so fun when I was a child.

The narrator is Tanaka Nobuo. He has a really nice voice, and the amazing thing about this is that

it’s around 60 to 90 minutes, since it’s a special.

He narrates for like 70 minutes! It makes me worried if he’s okay!

And also… when they go to meet a headhunting tribe, the narrator’s saying, “Nobody has ever crossed this line before,” but the camera man is on the other side!

Haha, so it’s not like nobody has ever entered the area.

Also, the opening of the episodes.

They have a synopsis!

It’s not a synopsis of the previous episode. It’s the synopsis of the current episode!

A digest version of the same episode for 10 minutes.

So they’d be like, “Let’s see if the headhunting tribe really exists!”

But then they already show the headhunting tribe at the end of the 10 minute synopsis.

What, you’ve already solved it!! What are you going to do for the next 80 minute?!

That’s what’s so funny about this series. Please watch Kawaguchi Hiroshi Tankentai after listening to Iriya!

 

[5:03]

Anyway… next time…

I wonder what it’ll be next time!

If you support us, we might have another!

I always talk about such random things. I hope it’s alright.

Anyway, I hope to come back again as Iriya! Thanks for your support.

That was Shinnosuke Tachibana acting as Iriya. Let’s met again! Bye!

 

[5:51]

Hey… sorry to disturb you right after you finished listening. Can I have some of your time?

Don’t be surprised. I’ve just possessed you.

Did you know that when you listen to these CDs, the real thing comes to you?

Don’t you want to actually be wrapped in snakes?

Like your back… don’t you think my scales feel nice?

Just kidding…

I didn’t come here to be mischievous.

 

[6:51]

There’s something I want to tell you directly.

It’s a bit embarrassing to say this, but thank you for loving me.

I’ve gratefully accepted your warm feelings for me.

Being cherished by someone is true joy.

This isn’t just to thank you, but if anything happens, you can rely on me.

I’ll grant any wish.

Of course, I’ll take something in exchange. Haha.

Just kidding. Don’t worry. I’ll let you off with this.

Haha. Thank you.

I guess I’ll let you off now.

But don’t forget that I’m always by your side.
