Title: Life56 Kubo's Past 3
Takagi: I understood
that Kouji was hiding something.
important that was.
Takagi: Oh, Kouji?
Um, I'd like to meet with you if I can, do you have some time?
What's brought on this sudden change?
about that slaughter of an entire family in Katsushika Prefecture...
We're really ashamed we couldn't catch the culprit.
Kubo: I know who did it.
He's in Shizuoka.
Narration: This incident wasn't publicized, but my position within the station rose dramatically.
All because Kouji used his spiritual sight to find information on the murdered in an unsolved case and told me about it.
Day after day
like he was hurrying something...
SFX: UUU UUU
Takagi: And then, that incident occurred.
Three children went missing around Setagaya. And then the corpses of two of them were found.
The culprit had chopped up the bodies, stuck them in his trunk, and dumped them on the Shuto Expressway.
Then a week passed with the welfare of the last child, six year old Shimabara Mio-chan, still unknown.
Takagi: What's going on, Kouji?
You're here, aren't you?
Takagi: What's wrong?
You haven't been picking up your phone recently, have you?
did something happen?
don't want to live anymore.
Kouji: This world is hell.
Takagi: The thing you're hiding is the cause of this, isn't it?
Do you wanna talk about it...?
At this point, I won't be surprised no matter what you tell me.
I was talking it over with my wife, and we decided.
Takagi: We though that before you turn 20, we could officially become your family.
We don't have any kids.
If you're okay with it, that is, Kouji.
So please, don't try to carry everything on your own.
We'll help you, so please, talk to us about it.
Kouji: I can't.
Kouji: This is one thing
I can't talk about!
Takagi: I understand, Kouji.
Please don't cry anymore.
Kouji: I'm sorry.
Takagi: It's okay.
I know that those powers of yours cause you pain sometimes.
Takagi: I'm sorry for you...
Kouji: There are people like this in the world.
They show no anger
Takagi: But Kouji, as a detective, I have to ask this.
Where is the killer behind the serial young girl murders...?
That six year old girl is in danger.
Please, tell me.
Why is it that after all that spiritual seeing you've done, you've refused only this one time?
I'm a detective. I want to save that girl no matter what it takes.
look for me.
Kouji: The girl is still alive.
The culprit is nearby.
I can't tell him his life span.
Kouji: I can't tell him
that he's about to die...
Kouji, is that you...?
My body won't move.
Kouji: The culprit ran into the apartment
and after a struggle
you fell from up there...
Takagi: The girl... is she all right?
Kouji: She's okay... She's in one of the rooms. The culprit got away, though.
Takagi: I see.
She's all right...? Good.
Kouji... Please call an ambulance and get help.
what's wrong, Kouji?
Are you trying to say
that there's no help for me now?
Takagi: So this is...
what yo were hiding...
You knew this would happen so you didn't say anything...?
Takagi: That must've been hard...
