Friends: Mononokeshima no Naki



I've got no choice.

Could that be...

Monster Island?

Naki of Monster Island

It really does exist.

It really exists!

It really does!

What were they talking about?

It was so easy to get to Monster Island!

It's been close all along!



What are you doing?

Why did you follow me here?!

You've also come to pick mushrooms,


You fool!

This isn't a place to come for fun.

I came to help Mom!

Fool, don't cry.

Alright, alright, I understand.

Listen, you have to keep quiet.

Be a good boy.

Do you understand, Kotake?


The rumor is true!

So many huge,

broad mushrooms!

Oh, aren't these 'Swallowtail' mushrooms?

We can make a huge profit

selling these, Kotake!

We'll easily make enough money

to pay for Mom's medicine!


You have to help gather!

Wow, those adults sure are cowards.

They won't even pass through Middlerock

because it's against the law.

It's like having Treasure Island right next to us!

They say monsters will appear?

Well then, let them appear!


Let's run for it!


You really chased them off, Naki!

It's not good, Gunjo.

He managed to get away.

Did something happen?

Takeichi broke the law.

What on earth?!

He said he was going to gather mushrooms.

You're here!

What's wrong?

What happened?

Mom, I'm sorry.

I wanted to get money...

beyond Middlerock...

I went to Monster Island.

How could you?!

Because I was worried about you.

Your strange cough never stops,

just like with Dad before he died...

That's why I...

Where's Kotake?

What happened to Kotake?!



Speak up and answer!

I heard the rumor that there were lots

of rare mushrooms growing...

Then monsters appeared!

I desperately...

tried to escape...

You left him behind?!



I'll go and rescue Kotake!

Please let me go!

Do you want to get killed?

You'll also be eaten by monsters!



I can see...

the rage of the monsters!

Their rage is seething out

from beyond Middlerock.

Cursing your son who has violated the ban,

rage is swirling around it!

It's unfortunate,

but you will have to give up on Kotake.

They've probably eaten him already.

Who would've thought Monster Island really does exist on the far side of Middlerock...

Will this pass by without any problems?

I don't know.

If, however, the legend is true,

the monsters were chased there back in the days of my great, great grandparents.

That will soon have been 200 years ago.

That was a long time ago.

In that case, could they have forgotten about the war and all that?

That's exactly the problem!

It's said that monsters live 10 times longer than we do.

The ones that lost the war and were chased to that island

are probably still alive...

Their rage has grown and grown without a doubt...

It's impossible to believe that they won't do anything.

If... the monsters get carried away by their rage and attack us...

Monsters are creatures that multiply with raging force.

I'm afraid their number...

has grown to over one thousand.

One thousand!

We have to hurry up and perform the ceremony to calm their rage!

Line up. Line up properly. Hey!

Is... everyone here?


Number yourself!





It's coming! It's coming!



That's your name, you know.

That's so true.

Enough already.

Anyway, we know everyone's

here without counting.

Now then.

The other one got away, huh.

It's been 200 years since the last battle.

That's quite a long time for humans.

This is the first time that a human has broken the law and come here.

If they know there are only a few monsters here,
