Even with Dr. Amano's backing,

this still happened,

so you'd better make the best of it.

We knew you were coming

two weeks ago.

It seems he likes you.

He's unfriendly to people he likes.

Not me.

He never finds fault with me.

He ignores me completely.

I won't do as he says.

It's some sort of trick.

I'm leaving,

no matter what Red Beard says.

We are under the jurisdiction

of the magistrate's office here.

And it has appointed you


You can't hide or run away.

Thanks to you, I can go.

I'll take you to your room.

I mean, we share it until I leave.

Excuse me.

He's quite a genius,

but we don't get along well.

This is our room.

Your things are here already.

Where are you going?

Running away will make trouble!

Running away will make trouble!

She's worse again

and I'm out of medicine!

Please make me some.

Only Red Beard does that.

He's in his room.

Dr. Yasumoto!


No one's allowed in here.

Only Red Beard.

Osugi's different.

She's a nurse.

Is that a ward too?

The girl's father built it himself.

She's a special patient.

The whole house is a prison.

Osugi has the key

and no one gets in.

The girl isn't let out either.

She's called "the mantis."

It's a good nickname.

The female eats the male

after they mate.

She'd do the same thing.

No one knows who she is,

but it seems she's

the daughter of a merchant.

She killed three clerks there.

She'd seduce them first.

When they'd get excited over her,

she'd stab them with a hairpin.

Had they ever done

anything to her?

Red Beard says she was just

born that way.

An hysterical condition

rather than insanity.

It's really a pity.

She's very beautiful.

Why don't you eat, Yasumoto?

I don't want to!

Does it mean you're not hungry

or that the food doesn't suit you?
