Side: The New York Taxi Driver, Randy Momochi. One more man chosen by Billy, but will he be the key to escaping this dilemma?!
Devivie: You... can talk with the bat...?
Devivie: Kuhaha!! What desperate bullshit to try to keep yourself alive longer!
Randy: It's not bullshit.
Devivie: You're not even a mangaka...
Randy: That's right, I'm a taxi driver.
Devivie: So how do you talk with him, then?
Randy: Check my shirt's chest pocket.
Devivie: Th... This Billy Bat is...
Our Chuck Culkin version...
Y... You don't mean to tell me you talk with this?
Randy: That guy's always...
been my taxi navigator.
Devivie: Is he saying something?
If you're not bullshitting me, then tell me!
It's been a while since we've talked, hasn't it?
Randy: He's saying to read.
If you read Zofuu's manga...
what you want to know is written there.

Guy: I don't remember getting called by your boss.
Because I've made him so much money off him.
Guy: We're sayin' that we're not gonna allow you to quit just because you're ahead.
Guy: Get lost. No matter how many times it is, I'll always win.
Guy: What'd you say, asshole?!
You saying you're cheating or some shit?!

Devivie: I'm home.
I'm home, Cissy.
Devivie: What's wrong? You seem down.
Cissy: Sorry. It's nothing, really.
Devivie: I'm the one who should be sorry. Your body is in a precious state right now.
And yet I left you for work in the middle of the night.
I got a call from the station. There was another murder of a Japanese American...
Devivie: I know. Let's go for a picnic on my next day off.
Of course, only if your body feels up to it.
Being downtown is depressing. Let's go somewhere pleasant...
Cissy: S... Sure. That's a good idea.
SFX: KARI KARI SHA SHA
SFX: KARI KARI SHA SHA

I can't change the future with manga!!
Guy: The stuff the bat tells me to draw just becomes reality.
The bat tells me, so even in gambling,
I can know what wins before it happens.
Some manga plot I made up on my own
won't do a goddamn thing.
Not a goddamn thing...
There's something in my head...
SFX: SHA SHA
Guy: This is a restaurant...?
SFX: SHA SHA SHA SHA
Dog: Is... is that true, Cissy?

Yes, my husband is the Japanese American killer.
SFX: KAH KA
SFX: SHAH SHAH
Guy: Th... This is...
[The text in the comics are the same as the last page]
Detective: Anyhow, this'll be a secret between me and you for now.
Understand, Cissy? Do all you can to make sure he doesn't find out.
Detective: You did good telling me all this.
There's no need to worry, I'll handle the rest.
Detective: Good night.
SFX: KAH KAH KAH
I just can't believe it...
Guy: It's so unlike you to worry like that, division chief.
Devivie: Why don't we have a little talk?
Detective: Ah... N... Naw.
It's nothing, really...
Devivie: Go ahead, tell me all about it.
What's on your mind?
Detective: N... No, it's really
nothing to worry about...
Devivie: For example...
Devivie: maybe you found out who the Japanese killer is?
Side: With Cissy having revealed a secret heard by the division chief, will that secret be buried in the darkness by a raised katana?!!
Bottom: Chapter 83 / End Continues in the unpredictable next issue!!
