Rio1: Arago, help me... My hands are...
Arago: Hang in there just a little longer!!
Arago: I'll go move the crane right now!!
Arago: Ergh! How the hell do I work this thing!?
Arago: Arggh! I can't figure it out!!
Right side (vertical): A monster appeared in the form of Ewan, this time it has taken the shape of Rio!!
1: He's using the same power as earlier, making himself look like Rio this time...
2: I've gotta save both of them but, I don't have the time or the means!!
3: Which is the real one, and which is the fake...
1: Which one!?
Arago: Tell me something that only you and I would know!!
Rio: Something only we would know!?
Arago: Anything is fine!!
Rio: When we were kids, you always used to tease me by putting slugs on my forehead!!!
Arago (small bubble): Uh...
Rio: I really looked forward to the apples I got for lunch, but you always ate them!!
Rio: And you were always flipping my skirt too!!
Rio1: Arago, I hate you!!
Arago 1: Uppercut!
1: It's no good, asking this kind of question was a waste
2: Because this guy is taking all of this right out of my memories.
1: I don't have time!! What should I do... Time is...
Rio: Arago... ...Please...
Rio: I'm the real one.
SFX: Shiver shake
Rio: I can't...
Rio: Hold on...
Right side: ((the story so far))
Left side (vertical):
Top Box: Character Info:
Below: Arago Hunt. After the Patch Man's surgery, he now has part of his older brother Ewan's body and a strange power in his hand. Succeeding his older brother's will, he became a police officer, and has now been selected to become a detective for the criminal investigations department.
Right side (vertical): Top Box: Character Info:
Below: Rio Butler. Arago's childhood friend. She's a police officer from a special department.
Arago: Just made it...
Rio: Arago, are you okay!? You shouldn't have done something so reckless!! That was completely reckless!!
Arago: Yeah, I'm fine, I'm fine. It was nothing.
Arago: And you, managing to hang on like that for so long.
Rio: Yeah, I can't even lift my arms now.
Rio: It was lucky you managed to figure out that I was the real one.
Rio: I'm so glad.
Arago: You have a little better opinion of me now?
Rio: A much better opinion.
Arago: All my hard work was worth it, then.
Rio: Yeah! Thank you.
Arago: Was I pretty cool?
Rio: Jeez... Arago, you...
Arago: Ha ha,
Arago: I'm glad.
Arago: I've always wanted to hear that, but you're always grumbling instead.
Arago: Where the hell is the real Rio, huh!?
Arago: The real one doesn't have such a glittering aura, you're really trying to keep me from looking behind...
Rio: No, no way...
Arago: I already knew.
Arago: That both of you were fakes without even asking!!
Rio: How, how could you know that!?
Rio: Our transformation should have been perfect!!
Arago: "Time will provide the answer."
Arago: It was the blood, the blood that was soaking though Rio's bandage.
Arago: Over time, the blood should have dried and become darker.
Arago: But on your bandage, the blood was always bright red.
Arago: Because you copied the Rio that I last remembered...
Arago: Trying to be too exact backfired, didn't it?
Arago: It was a pretty clever trick, both reading my mind at the same time to match both of their appearances and their words, right?
Arago: From the start, when you called me from Rio's cell phone, you were both already fakes.
1: That's far enough!!
2: Unless you don't care what happens to that woman!
1: This is a detonator!
2: Look behind you!!
1: If you come any closer...
SFX: Tick Tick...
3: The woman's life is over.
1: Use this to stab yourself in the chest.
1: If you die, the woman will be saved...
2: And you'll give us your power.
Arago: Do you know why I have this power in the first place?
1: When the Patch Man died his power was inherited by you, one who doesn't know anything.
(T/N: The kanji used for "Patch Man" here literally translates to "The King of Town".)
2: You don't know that power's value. You're completely unqualified to even handle it!!
Arago: Ah, how worthless.
Arago: This thing, I'd love to be able to get rid of it, but...
SFX: Za! Za!
1: Hey! Weren't you listening? That woman's life...!!
Arago: Sorry but this thing is just a cross that I must bear.
Arago: Whether you pray or cling to something else, nothing will help you now.
Arago: I will use this cross with all my might to dig all the guys like you out of every corner you hide in.
Arago: Idiot! Rio can't see anything right now.
SFX: Pashi Pashi
Arago: This power, if I wanna use it, I can use it as much as I like, right?
1: Even if you kill me, you'll never accomplish anything!
2: My companions will keep coming, one after another!!
Arago: Then let 'em come!! I'm not gonna run or hide!!
Arago: But you know, if you're gonna involve people other than me, then...
Arago: You'd better be prepared to deal with the consequences!!!!
1: Ca- can you hit this face!?
2: Your dead older bother's face!!
Arago: Ewan didn't have that kind of sleaze-bag face.
Arago: You bastard!!
SFX: Para para
Arago: I already beat the crap out of him, but I coulda used him for more info about his buddies...
Arago: Well, whatever.
Arago: It'd be too troublesome---
SFX: Step Step
2: Ewan... is it you?
Panel 5 (thin bar):
SFX: Beep beep beep beep...
SFX: Beep beep beep...
1: Why am I in the police station's sleeping room?
2: How strange, I was sure I went home yesterday... and then...
1: I can't remember anything after that, except a dream about Ewan,
2: But I have a feeling it wasn't the first time...
1: Even now... it's like I can still feel his touch...
Joe: Yo, Rio-chan!
Rio SFX: Zawa Zawa
Rio: Hold on!!
1: Hey, Arago Hunt!
2: On Braem's case, you though you beat me, didn't you!!
Arago: No, I didn't really...
1: But I'll definitely be the one to catch the murderer!!
2: Don't you dare butt in!!
Arago: Yeah, yeah. Thanks for your hard work...
1: You'll never catch them in this lifetime, though.
Rio: You're amazing Arago,
Rio: What an incredible feat!
1: The fake!?
Memory bubble 1: Arago, could you
Memory Bubble2: Check for me?
Rio: Bu- but don't misunderstand. It's only because Joe-san told me to tell you that.
Rio: I don't really...
Arago: Thank god, it's the usual Rio.
Arago: What the heck, you're in a good mood today, huh.
Rio: Yeah, a little.
Arago: I had a really nice dream.
Arago: Ugweh, what the hell is this coffee!?
Rio: Do you really hate it?
Arago: Who the hell can drink something this bitter!!
Rio: But Ewan used to like it.
Rio: That's what my seniors told me.
Rio: Just take a sip.
Arago: One sip?
Arago: ...Huh? I'm surprised.
Arago: Yeah, the bitterness is kind of like a chocolate bar...
1: The coffee that Ewan liked, I like it too---
Arago: Yeah, it's not bad, this firearm's division coffee.
Rio: Is it making your tongue a little more like an adult's?
Arago: Leave me alone.
SFX: Fu fu...
1: "Woe to the man whose heart has not learned while young to hope, to love - and to put its trust in life."
2: Joseph Conrad
Joe: It really is the truth.
Joe: Now then...
Joe: Back to work.
Joe: Let's see...
Joe: Where are you now---
Joe: Patch Man.
Right side (vertical): The veteran policeman was also chasing the Patch man!? A new bizarre case begins... the next issue!!
