Drowning Fish

Drowning Fish

Who are you?

You like tropical fish?

Do you think it's possible to drown a fish?

No way. Fish can't drown.

...in the west, weather conditions

will be worsening.

Cloudy skies are...

...and now let's look at

current conditions in Tokyo.

Taking a look at our Ginza live feed,

we can see some heavy clouds overhead.

It's 20 degrees in Tokyo right now.

I think I'll be heading back after all.


What? It's too late for that now!


Just think back to when you were a kid,

swimming in the ocean or river.

I'm no kid, and this isn't any ocean or river.

Sometimes a man's got to fight

even when he knows he'll lose!

This is one of those times!

"No. 1 Well-Hung"

Cover it up!

It's time!


Ogata, wait!

No running!

Your dick!

What about your dick?

Ogata, what do you think you're doing?

Hey, let's wash this car.

Nah, gonna rain soon.

Intellect Bread:
Banana and Margarine

Snow Brand Milk

I'll go around the back.

You take the main entrance.

Who's there?

Who are you?

I said, who are you?

Um, your precious home

is being targeted by termites.

Let go!

That really hurts!

It... actually feels really good.


Well, all right.


Are you all right?

Stay back!

They're still alive. You'll get shot!

You bastards still won't give up?!

Stop resisting! Resist and I'll shoot!

I'm ordering you to stop resisting!

Surrender already!

Do as I say!

Stop! Look out!


You killed them?

It was self-defense!

These two are just right.

I'm not sure Inspector Shirasu is fit for this job,

much less Officer Akiyoshi.

Those two would make a good team.

Based on my self-taught name fortunetelling,

the combination of fifteen and eleven strokes

in their names is ideal for a work partnership.

That's just one point on the graph, anyway.

Has my judgment ever been wrong before?

What? Hey! Who are you?

You're Officer Munetaka Akiyoshi, right?

We're special inspectors from the National Police Agency.

Special... inspectors?

Let's go over it again, Inspector Shirasu.

I don't know what I don't know.

You allegedly shot and killed two criminals

and pocketed tens of millions of their yen.

You acted alone in that firefight,

embezzling the cash while keeping

your fellow officer out of the room.

Did you actually see this happen?

'Course you didn't.

That's why everyone thought you were

Ms. High-and-Mighty in the Academy.

You're Joe Shishido, are you not?

What are you saying? You're way off track.

Three days after the incident,

five million yen in cash was deposited

into an account in Joe Shishido's name

at a bank near your home.




This is security camera footage

of Joe Shishido making the deposit.

That's you, isn't it?

Turn it off!

Stop the video! Cut the power!

This isn't me!

I've had enough. You're a disgrace!

I have a proposition for you.

Let me get right to the point.

If you do what we ask, we'll agree

to overlook the crimes you've committed.

It's not a crime to dress up in women's clothes.

Certainly, cross-dressing itself

isn't against the law.

The problem is how you happened

to acquire those clothes.

We've searched your apartment.

You have quite a lot of women's

outfits and undergarments,

especially uniforms.



A nurse.

The Daiei in Himonya, third floor, ladies' clothing.

Japanese restaurant Yumean.

A Hato tour bus guide.

The Kokiriko pub in Nogata.

Cashier, Marusho Grocery, Edogawabashi.

A female SDF official

and a policewoman.

Of these, the policewoman's uniform

bears a striking resemblance to the one
