Be careful. Someone might see.

I'll go see who it is.

I'm so sorry.

And the other matter?

I mean Della Togashi.

Didn't find him yet.

No easy task.

After all... it's Della Togashi.

The boss said find him, so find him.

We're after Della Togashi.

Get the car.


I'll never do this again.

I promise.

He dragged me kicking and screaming.

But I didn't dare resist too hard...

Can you say this to his face?



Please accept my sincere apology.

It seems you made the first move.

In which case...

you're a dead man.

Just a minute!


Things between Mari and I are not what you think.

How long's it been?

How long? Well...

How many times?


Give me a straight answer.

How many times?

Or too many to count?

This was the first time.

This week.

You wanna know so bad, I'll tell you.

We did it a bunch.

At his place... at my place...

In your car, too...

Boss, that's not true.

It was just to get your attention.

She felt ignored. She still loves you.

You're joking, right?


I was fed up of being with him.

Watch your words!

I don't care.

If you're killing us, get on with it.

It's cold.

It's really damn cold.

No, it ain't.

Kurokawa-san, please...

We were buddies, right?

Shut the hell up.

Excuse me.

Feet a little lower please.

I just had my nails done.


It took ages.

But normally...


Call me when it's set.

Damn... if only Della Togashi were by my side...

Good old Della would help me.

You know him?

An acquaintance more than a friend.

For real?

Is this Della Togashi in the photo?

Probably... but the focus is awful.

Can you bring him here?

Della Togashi?

I'm a big fan.

I've always wanted to meet him.

If you bring him to me, I'll let you off the hook.

No problem, right?


You've got 5 days.

He's probably busy... could I have a week?

If the boss says 5 days then 5 days it is.

5 days, then...

God, that was scary...

My feet are filthy...

Are you angry?

Damn right... after all those lies.

How lucky that you're friends with Della.

Once we hook 'em up, let's quit this town forever.

Who is he, though?

Della Togashi...

Where do I find him?

I thought he was a friend?

Never even met him.

Wait a damn second.

If I hadn't said that we'd be fish food...

I don't believe it.

I'll look for him. Who is he?

Some fashion designer?

A hitman.


The best sniper ever.

I'm okay, everyone.

Mr. Manager...

Not a word.

Let me use your shower.

My feet are crispy.

The boss did this?

And he threw Mari out. Get her a hotel room.

A stiff drink for me.

You're lucky to get out alive.

It depends on this guy.

I'll be swimming with the fishes unless I find him in 5 days.

Who is it?

Della Togashi.

The hitman?

Is he that famous?

I've heard of him.

I'm the only one who hasn't.

Where's he live?

Nobody knows his true identity.

He works alone.


"The Phantom Assassin".

So how do I find him?

If you found him he'd stop being a phantom.

It's hopeless.

This was taken in town.

That's on this street.

Go check all the hotels.

You promised to find him, right? Didn't you?

What the hell do we do?

I'm not going in the damn sea.

I'm in the same boat.

I knew something like this would happen.

I've been so worried.

That Mari is trouble.

Everyone says so.

You should feel sorry for her.

Why her of all people?

We've known each other for ages.

When I first started working here,

she was in the chorus line.

We kept each other's spirits up.

I worked like a madman and became manager.

She became the boss's girlfriend.
