It's a present

You don't treat

people like this

You don't have

a cell phone?

I don't

It's useless and

it's a constraint

As a detective your

not too resourceful

Don't tell me what...


What's this about

That Kyoko Kondo

had stressed me

and it would keep

going till she dies


Ah, thank god

you're still there

I'm sorry about before

Forget it

If I don't tell you my

name and circumstances

You can't help me?

She was playing the

damsel in distress

I thought I could

remain anonymous

But I'm in such trouble

I'm not too difficult

to be won over...

Couldn't you help me?

There is no one

else I can trust

In that case...


Go ask something to

Mr. Minami a lawyer

at the Economic

Office in Sapporo

"Where was Kato last

year, February the 5th?"

Just this?

Just this

What if he doesn't tell

In that case tell me

how he responded

You are from

pest control?

Recently global

warming has increased

Even in Sapporo the

need for pest control

Well, owing to that...

owing to that our

market is expanding

Therefore I'd like

a legal consultation

I see, I see

How about it?

You don't seem

to know

But we handle only

major companies

So a small company like us

Should not come here?

I'd say, you need a better

match for your needs


Your putting me in a fix

For example, Sir

If I told you I'm recommended

by Mrs. Kyoko Kondo?

Who did you say?

Kyoko Kondo

You don't know her?

Well... No

Ah, I see

That Kyoko Kondo

Told me to ask you

"Where was Kato last year"

"February, 5th?"

What are you

talking about?

It's alright if

you don't know

Excuse me for

the trouble

Hi Gen!


What an ugly outfit

What's this

thing dangling?

I just got a $1,000 job

Good for you

come here

Come inside, a Russian

blond, top and bottom
