Title: Life55 Kubo's Past 2
Sign: -tani Police Station
Takagi: How's that boy doing now?
Guy: No change.
He won't eat or drink
Takagi: Oh, I see.
Guy: Also, Takagi-san...
It's been 49 hours...
and he hasn't slept at all.
Takagi: I bought hamburgers.
I've never had one before, but these things are pretty damn good.
Kubo: This is really
the 2nd time, isn't it?
Kubo: When you were on a trip with your wife,
you had some, didn't you?
do you know that?
Kubo: I know
other things, too.
I killed my mother and little sister.
please execute me.
Takagi: So, why don't you tell me?
About how you killed those two,
about what you did before you turned yourself in?
You're the only one that knows, right?
SFX: GOBUH GOFUH
Call an ambulance!
TV: Bottom of the 6th, the Giants are at bat.
DON DON DON
have I ever eaten hamburgers before?
Wife: You have.
Remember, we ate them in the car when we were stuck in traffic that time we went to Atami.
WIfe: Why do you ask?
Taka: It's nothing..
Taka: There's this twelve year old boy who's under so much stress, he's got a hole in his stomach.
SFX: WA DON DON
Taka: I've got to help him...
I talked to my wife about it, and you were right. That was my second time eating hamburgers.
It was only the second time, even though you eat pizza so often...
Taka: Okay, then
tell me one more thing...
Takagi: What is it you're carrying?
You can't try to take the blame yourself.
First of all, you don't have any motive at all for killing your parents, right...?
I know you're trying to stick up for someone.
But you shouldn't suffer through it on your own.
So please, talk to me.
Takagi: strange power of yours...
It's not normal,
what you've got.
Kubo: I wish this thing never existed!
It's because of this power
that everyone got so fucked up...
Takagi: Tell me about it.
I'm your ally.
Takagi: Kouji can see people's pasts and futures.
He sees everything like a slide show. The good, the bad, and everything in between.
And he also has that power of "possessing with evil".
It's hard to believe,
but he can make it so another person has suddenly been injected with lethal poison.
But it seems that that evil cannot be fired unless it is pulled from a place Kouji calls the "Darkness Realm".
And the more you use it, the more your body breaks down.
Takagi: It also seems that Sawako, his little sister, had power greater than Kouji.
To use his phrasing, "She was like a girl that stood in the passage between Earth and the Darkness Realm."
For a girl of only 7 years old, that power was too incredible to bear.
Her heart and mind grew ill
and she infected her mother with evil.
I think I'll keep a record on Kouji as he continues down this checkered life.
Narration: December 24th 2008.
Takaghi: Oh, I'm glad you came.
Kouji, my wife has been working very hard
all afternoon to bake a cake, and I've been dying to try it.
Hm... What's wrong?
Do you not wanna spend Christmas with us?
Takagi: C'mon, make yourself at home.
Kouji: This person...
has no life span.
