Narration: Los Angeles
Little Tokyo----
1924----
Side: The unpredictable historical sci-fi picture scroll, Billy Bat finally resumes serialization!! And now in weekly form!!

Page 2:
Side: The voices for hopes of revival come one after another!! The continuation of the newest tankoubon, volume 9, starts with weekly serialization!!
Detectives: Another Japanese? [These Laurel and Hardy guys had names I think, but I don't remember them and they don't matter.]
What's the weapon?
Probably a Japanese katana.
He's got one long cut going from his shoulder down his back, splitting him apart.
He~~~~w! That's horrific......!!
The killer's gotta be a jap, right?
Of course. Only the Japanese swing around those katana things.
Devivie: No, Chinese frequently wield bladed weapons as well.

Page 3:
Detectives: What?
Reporters aren't allowed in here!
Devivie: I've been stationed here from New York.
I'm Detective Devivie.
Title: Chapter 78
Serial Murder Case (1/8)
Side: The chapters that will make up volume 10 will be published consecutively, 8 weeks in a row!!

Page 4:
Devivie: Ooh......
One slash from the back, eh......?
The Japanese have a philosophy called bushido.
It is not the style of a Japanese to attack from behind.
Detective: So you're saying it was a Chinese, then?
Devivie: No, I think an American, actually ............
Detectives: ..........
Devivie: Don't you think? The ones embracing ill will towards Japanese right now are Americans.
There are boycotts against people of Japanese decent......

Page 5:
Devivie: With Japan triumphing over China and Russia, they seem like they could defeat any opponent.
And on top of that, the movie actor Sessue Hayakawa is getting pay rivaling that of Chaplin and has taken up residence in a mansion.
But Little Tokyo is extremely crowded all over.
Seeing those frustrating things might............
You two feel the same way, don't you?
Detective: ...........
Quite the Japanophile, aren't you, Detective Devivie?
Devivie: Japanophile..........?
Well, no. Japan is just more of a developed nation than you two think. But more importantly......

Page 6:
Devivie: Some are calling it the Yellow Peril. That yellow-skinned races are becoming a threat to society. By embracing those ideas of racial discrimination, it's the Americans that are far more uncivilized.
He may be a victim of that discrimination.
Detectives: ..........
Policeman: Inspector,
I think it's likely that this hat belonged to the victim.
Look what was found underneath it............
Detective: This is......

Page 7:
Detectives: A bat..........?
My God. It's drawn in blood.......
Clearly this is the killer's signature.

Devivie: Ah...... no, I only just got in.

Detective: Last night's victim was a Japanese, but......
His name was Yuunosuke Toyoda.
A manager working for a gambling den in Little Tokyo.
What's with the flower?
Devivie: Ah......
It's...... nothing.
Detective: Sounds like you're up to something......
SFX: ZA...
SFX: GIRI...

Page 14:
Guy: Even if you claim he was from our gambling hall, we're on sound footing.
We're not crooked like you Americans.
Devivie: I see...... And, could you tell me about Mr. Toyoda's work behavior......?
Guy: Well...... There was nobody who worked like him.
SFX: ZUZU...
Guy: He wasn't the sort of man who made enemies.

Policeman: His wallet and envelopes full of cash are completely undisturbed.
Detective: So it wasn't robbery...... eh?
