Text 3: Undertaker Riddle
Text 4: Funeral 8 – The Undertaker Guides.
Text 5: Akai Higasa
Brad: That’s all the king said.
Hayato: Umm, that means… / the boss is calling me? // The one who might get my soul back… // Which means I’ve already achieved my aim!
In panel: I did it! Yay!
Hayato: My efforts have finally been recognised!
Brad: It doesn’t mean that…
Brad: It means that the boss wants to meet Hayato-sama, the holder of the Twilight Key.
Hayato: H-Huh? I see… // Oh well, as long I get to meet the boss… // Anyway, you’ve been calling me “Hayato-sama” for a while. / It’s creepy.
Brad: It’s natural to respect the holder of the Twilight Key. // What’s wrong with that?
Text 1: What kind of amazing power is the Twilight Key?
Text 2: In that world, it means that I’m called “Hayato-sama”, I get invited by the the boss and I’m suddenly great?
Text 3: It doesn’t feel real, it feels creepy.
Riddle: Ah, you have a worried look on your face. / You’re not going to accept the invitation?
Hayato: I’ll go! It’s the perfect chance to get my soul back, you see! // So where is the catacomb? Let’s go there right away!
Brad: Hayato-sama…don’t you know? // The catacomb is the where you go when you’re dead.
Hayato: Umm…but I’m still alive…
Brad: Don’t worry. / In your case, it doesn’t mean you’ll be dying, you’ll definitely return to the human world.
Hayato: So there’s no need to worry! / Okay! Remember what you said!
Riddle: If you’re that worried, then you don’t have to go…
Brad: Well, I’ll open up the entrance to the catacomb then. / Please come this way.
Hayato: Uh… // What are you doing?
Brad: We promise that our blood is loyal to the king…
Brad: In the name of our master…
Brad: Open the gates of eternal rest!
Hayato: Eh?! / Ah…!
Brad: This is the entrance to the catacomb.
Hayato: Wow…a massive building appeared in an instant… // [Hmm?] This is the entrance, but I don’t see a door anywhere…
Brad: Gloria in excelsis Deo
[Glory to God in the highest]
Brad: Glory to the catacomb!
Riddle: Let’s go, Hayato-kun.
Hayato: Eh… / No way…
Hayato: The entrance is below us?! // Uh… // Uwaaaaah!
Brad: Are you alright, Hayato-sama?
Hayato: Oww… / Is this makeshift entrance all you’ve got?!
Riddle: Ah…you just need to get used to it. // I was surprised at first too. // Anyway, look in front of you, Hayato-kun. / A beautiful scene just right for the world of the dead.
Hayato: The beautiful scenery in the world of the dead…something like a field of flowers?
Riddle: Welcome to the final destination of the dead.
Riddle: The catacomb of the souls.
Riddle Ah, you don’t have to be so frightened… / You’re unexpectedly delicate.
Hayato: No…a normal person would be scared! // Anyway, this massive castle is too atmospheric… // It wouldn’t be strange if a vampire lived here…
Brad: It’s the castle of judgement. / It’s where the King of the Catacomb lives and where the judgement of souls takes place.
Hayato: Judgement of souls?
Brad: Souls from all over the world are brought to this castle. / Then the king judges whether they will go to heaven or hell.
Riddle: By the way, souls that don’t go to heaven or hell end up working in this castle. / Brad and I are those incomplete people.
In panel: I’m not like you…
Hayato: Hmm… // In other words, the king is a huge demon… // What should I do? I’d be scared if something like that appeared…
Brad: Please come inside the castle.
Hayato: Waah…it’s huge!
Brad: Please watch your step.
Hayato: Scary… / It’s extravagant, but so creepy…
Brad: This is the King’s office.
Text 1: The king is on the other side of this door…
Text 2: Finally…we’ll finally meet…
Hayato: No matter how big and scary he might be… // I’ve got to say that
Hayato: I want my soul back…!
Brad: I’ve brought Hayato Sakura-sama.
[sfx] knock knock
Faust: Come in.
Brad: Excuse me.
Faust: This is the first time we’ve met. // My name is Faust.
Faust: I’m the king of this catacomb.
Text 1: Eh…
Text 2: Eh…eh…
Hayato: Eh?! / The king is a woman?!
Text 1: She’s really pretty though…
Text 2: Uh oh…my heart is beating really fast…
Riddle: Ah, what an amazing pile of documents…you’re busy as usual.
Faust: Sorry, even though you came all the way here, / I’m not ready to take a break from my work yet… // Could you wait over there?
Hayato: Over there?
Brad: Please sit down, Hayato-sama.
Brad: The chef’s special choux cream, made with the finest milk, has been prepared for you today, Hayato-sama.
Hayato: Wow! / Can I eat this? All of it?!
Brad: Please have it with this aromatic Earl Grey.
Riddle: You’re always such a brilliant worker. / Just what you’d expect from a workaholic.
Brad: Not really. // It’s natural for a secretary to support his master. // I’m nothing like a certain lazy undertaker.
Riddle: Well, my goodness!
Hayato: Scary… [They really don’t get on well…]
Faust: Sorry to keep you waiting.
Hayato: King! Good day! It’s an honour to meet you!
Faust: Hehe, what an interesting person you are. // You don’t have to be so formal.
Faust: It was actually me who wanted to meet you.
Riddle: Well…what did you want to talk about? / You didn’t call him here just to drink tea, did you?
Brad: Riddle, you… / How dare you talk to the king like that!
Faust: It doesn’t bother me. // That’s right…let’s get down to business right away. / Hayato Sakura // No…
Faust: The Crown Prince, future King of the Catacomb. // My successor.
Hayato: Umm…is this some kind of mistake? / I’m just a normal person…
Faust: No // The Twilight Key you hold qualifies you to become king. // Of course, I have one too.
Faust: The Twilight Key is a “god’s power”, one with the ability to destroy or create worlds. / Only the chosen ones are born with this power in their bodies. // Generations of people who possessed the Twilight Key have ruled the catacomb and supported it with that power.
Hayato: A god’s power…the Twilight Key is something so important…
Faust: However, the catacomb has been damaged by attacks from evil spirits. // At this rate, it’s clear that I won’t be able to keep supporting it with my Twilight Key… // That’s why I want you to become the next king and using a new power, support the catacomb instead of me.
Faust: As the king, I have a duty to protect the catacomb. // Please, Hayato Sakura.
Hayato: If you ask one of the other Twilight Keys…
Faust: People born with it don’t appear often…it’s just you and me right now.
Faust: But… / You’re not ready to become king yet.
Riddle: Part of your soul is missing, which means that the Twilight Key is incomplete. // Well, the king who stands at the summit of the souls should be able to solve that.
Hayato: That’s right! I came to ask about that!
Hayato: The missing part of my soul already ascended…so the king should be able to return it!
Faust: Yes…if it came here, then it should have been dealt with… / Brad
Hayato: If it came here…?
Brad: This is a list of the souls that have come here over the past few months. // From among those, these are the ones from Japan… / Tokyo…
Brad: Names beginning with “S”…
Brad: If the missing part of your soul ascended, your name should be written here. // Please check it by yourself.
Hayato: …. // Wha… / Why…
Hayato: It’s not here… / My name isn’t written here…
Riddle: That can’t be… / I’m sure we saw it ascending. // But it hasn’t come to the catacomb, which means…
Faust: Yes…in other words…
Faust: Hayato Sakura’s soul has // been stolen by someone else.
Faust: It’s likely to be the enemy / of the catacomb and us undertakers… // An evil spirit…
Text: The whereabouts of the stolen soul…this is the worst thing that could happen!
