Only for use by Illuminati-scans
NOOOOOOOW Kubo's past is done. And so we venture onwards to whatever. Attackiness.
[Hito Hitori Futari 57 Translation by Kewl0210]
Someone: Hello, this is Hotel Canary.
Title: Life57 Kubo's Past 4
Kubo: Excuse me, I'm a relative of a someone named Kawamoto Noboru that's staying there.
I received an odd phone call with him earlier, and since then I haven't been able to get in contact with him.
Someone: Huh...? What was the call about?
Kubo: Something like... It's all over for me.
I don't want to live... he said that sort of thing.
Kubo: I think he's in room 302. Do you think you could go check in on him for me...?
Are you all right?
What should we do? Do we open it?
We've got no choice.
SFX: UUUUUUH UUUUUUH
Kubo: Once Takagi-san had died and become nothing but a soul,
this was the last thing he told me.
Takagi: "I was wrong for using your spiritual powers all this time."
"If that power brings you pain, Kouji, then just live a peaceful life and never use them again..." He said.
Kouji: I thought
the same thing.
It was because of these powers
that I lost my partents, my sister, and Takagi-san.
So I intended for the capturing of the culprit in this case to be the final time.
Kouji: But... It was like a nightmare. Just by frequencies aligning, I would inadvertently see the feelings and lives of people...
this one time was odd.
Kubo: You, someone who killed little girls just for your own pleasure...
As soon as you knew you had nowhere left to run, you tried to leave this world through suicide, but I couldn't let you.
I saved you...
I felt I needed to see...
that you atoned here... on Earth...
Sign: Name Unknown
Kubo: And then
I can't see what comes next.
I can't see what sort of life of atonement you'll lead...
Kubo: It was so dark
I couldn't see anything.
Kubo: And then I searched as hard as I could to find the reason I couldn't see.
and then I finally
reached the answer.
Kubo: Why I couldn't see your life...
You came to, eh?
That was a miraculous comeback...
Kubo: I thought about it a little,
and I figured something out.
And that is...
because it was my own life...
With this incredibly useless power
I can't see my own life.
Ain't that a riot?
So that means
the one to end your life...
Kubo: will be me...
Kubo: I'll tell you one final thing...
The detective you shoved off the seventh story...
Kubo: So I'm getting revenge.
[And so that nameless bad guy dies.]
Paper: Suspect for serial young girl murders "killed in hospital"
Kubo: Takagi-san, I'm sorry...
But I can't go back now...
Kubo: Now that I've killed a person with my own hands, I can only fall into the dark work.
And... that's for the best.
That collage of tragedies that Kubo's spiritual powers created...
Kasuga: So why is this man
taking out his anger on us?
Riyon: That's because you're using powers to give yourself an advantage, old man.
And to the very end
Kubo didn't tell Takagi his life span.
I told you,
so he doesn't like us, I guess.
SFX: PUURURURU TOURURURU
Kasuga: This is Kasuga.
Guy: Prime Minister.
There's been a sudden change in Hajime-san's condition.
Riyon: It's begun.
Kubo's all-out attack...
