I guess...I'm dead...? Oh well...

Can't say I'm really bothered.


You're our lucky winner!



You've been quite the sinful soul.

But you're in luck.

You've just won yourself a trip back to the world below.

Looks like you're going to get a second chance!


Where are you going?

You're about to slip out of the cycle of reincarnation.

You'll never have another chance at life.

Don't you care about that?

I don't care...

The answer's no.

Really? Why?

Kinda seems like

more trouble than it's worth.

Or maybe it's just

that I had enough of that

damn place the first time around.

But you don't remember what happened there, right?

So it's not like you have any bad memories.


I guess, but...

So there's no problem, right?

Besides, it's not like either of us can do anything to change it.

What The Boss says goes.

The Boss?

I guess...you might call him the father of all creation.

Are you...

...an angel?

If that's how you'd like to think of me.

Oh yes, I forgot to introduce myself.

My name's Purupura.

I've been charged with being your guide.

This door leads to the world below.

There you'll become a boy named Makoto Kobayashi.

Makoto Kobayashi...

Who is he...?

Why him?

I don't know. I'm just telling you what The Boss told me.

Well then, if you will.

Wait a sec...

I'm not...

Come on, come on.

You'll have plenty of time to think later.

Time to go.

Are you...an angel...?


Three days ago, Makoto Kobayashi tried to commit suicide by overdosing on pills.

He's due to pass away soon.

When he dies, his soul will leave his body...

...leaving you free to slip in in his place.



If you complete your training successfully, you'll reenter the cycle of reincarnation.

And you'll be reborn anew.

What do I mean by 'training'?

Well, we in the business call it a 'homestay'.

Makoto comes from a four person family.

Ah! Makoto!

Makoto! Makoto!



Excuse me, let me take a look.


His pulse has restarted...

Hook him back up to an ECG.


He's come back...

Makoto's come back from the dead!



Sorry, but you'll need to stand back a moment.

Makoto, can you hear me?


Is this my voice?

Ah...it's Makoto's.

Ah...it's Makoto's.

What do you want? Water?

A m...mirror.

A mirror?

What's wrong? Do you want to see your face?

It's not a mirror, but if you want to see your face...

Can you see?

Nothing wrong, right?

That's fine.


Ah! Makoto!

What's wrong? Do you feel ill?

My stomach... My chest... It feels like I'm being stabbed.

I feel awful.

This is my father.

This is my mother.

This is my older brother, Mitsuru.


This is Makoto Kobayashi, the person I've become.

After a week spent in hospital...

...and a range of tests, a conclusion was reached:

There was nothing at all the matter with Makoto's body.

His parents were told that his heart was another question, but...

There really wasn't really any need to worry there.

Because Makoto's heart wasn't inside him anymore.

Mine was.

What's wrong?

Is it hard to go back?

Not really...

I've laid out a bunch of dishes I started making yesterday.

All your usual favourites.

I'll go heat them up in a sec.

Ah, we're using the Japanese styled room today.


Come in, come in.

It's nice to use this room every now and again.

You could've carried his luggage to the washroom.

Your brother's been busy studying, but I made sure he came along today.

I wanted us all to come get you together when you were discharged.

Oh, you should light a stick of incense for granny too.
