Chapter 23: Teach Us, Kei-san!

Dan dadadaaan! It’s Q&A time with Ghost-chan!

Although the content is quite strange and I can’t really keep up with it!

Just so you know, it’s not because my brain is bad.

I was born in a different world, after all, and I feel like my knowledge from that time is conflicting with the reality in this one.

Anyway, Honoka doesn’t seem to have anymore questions she wants me to ask, so should I get my own questions out of the way?

“So… apparently Boss Nagi wants to hire us, but what does that mean?”

Right, let’s stop the difficult talk and start talking about why the heck we were brought here.

“…Eh?” (more…)

Chapter 22: Teach Us, Suzu-chan!

A woman with a foreign air about her stood in front of the car park of Narita.

She had a healthy, olive complexion, wavy dark hair, and a prominent nose, as well as a slender but robust stature.

Her skirt went almost to her knees, but that didn’t stop a few leer-ers from gazing at her shapely legs.

“Ms. Ergane.” (more…)

Chapter 21: What Kind of Movie is This?

When Daiki-san rushed into the police department and managed to make it into Unit 1’s office, barely on time, a weird atmosphere was floating about.

“Good morning…”

As he gave the customary greeting, Daiki-san’s sharp eyes surveyed each and every one of his team members’ face, and yet he couldn’t understand why they all had a face like they had just swallowed a stink bug.

“… Manabe-san, can I have a moment?”

Before Daiki-san could sit down, Supervisor Endou called out to him. (more…)

Chapter 20: A Troublesome Woman

In the residential area near Tsunatou’s main park, two very special houseguests were beginning to take their leave of a certain house.

*Yawn* Right, so it will be a day or two, but an expert will come over to check your weird Blessings out. So since it’s getting late, we’ll leave it for next time. Right, Kousei-kun, give me your phone so I can put you as a contact. Is that alright?”

“Th-that’s fine, but is it okay for me to have a kami’s number – No, before that, weren’t you originally here because of Honoka?!”

“Ah~ that… Well, she’s in your care!” (more…)

Chapter 19:  Undefined Terms

It was 9 AM in a certain office in a certain building in Washington DC.

*Briiing*

A short ring from a cellphone sounded, and the woman with gleaming silver eyes, seated at the gorgeous, mahogany desk covered in papers, gave a slight sigh of irritation.

When she checked her phone, however, her expression tightened and she stood up.

“…It seems I will need to go to Japan for a bit.”

“Wha-, but Secretary Ergane, there’s still the matter of the reception at the Hirshhorn –“ (more…)

Chapter 18: The House Call

“Aruji, what are your intentions on that young man?”

In a certain office above a small stationary store, the Witch and her assistant, Kei, walked in without turning the light on.

The Witch flopped herself down on the couch.

“Fufufu, I’m a neutral party, you know? What kind of ‘intentions’ could I have?”

“… That’s true as well.”

Kei doesn’t deny the fact that his Aruji actually has no intentions to control the kid. He knows her mind better than … well, no one else could even entertain the idea that they knew her mind.

“But… you know, seeing a kid like that…if he’s going to get into trouble anyway, I might as well take him in… It’s that kind of thing.” (more…)

Chapter 17: Meeting Unit 2 and the Witch

*Staaaaare*

In front of us are a woman with animal-like parts to her, a short and slim oni guy, a yakuza with a game console, and a guy with no particular notable qualities about him.

*Staaaaare*

… If you stare that hard, I’m going to blush~.

No, seriously, why are they all looking over here?

Every single one of them is staring right at me.

Why?! There’s a six-tailed kitsune right over here, though?! Isn’t that something way more interesting?!

The fact that I called her “that” is something I won’t be telling her any time soon.

Haa. What is with everyone…? (more…)

Cursed 016: The Kazekama and Unit 2

Chapter 16: The Kazekama and Unit 2

It was still early evening when Unit 2 reached their site.

Stoic Supervisor Isamu Ooishi.

Rough-mouthed, flashily dressed, game-carrying Arata Kamo.

Brash and flashily dressed in a different, the sword-carrying woman Katsumi Inukai.

Short and slim, wearing a traditional hakama and haori that seemed strange for everyday modern wear, Jurou Katou.

The thin, normal, but easily overlooked Gakuto Yamada.

It was a splendidly conspicuous group of mismatched people.

Although they were officially known as a crime investigation unit, their job was actually something quite different.

Although most people wouldn’t know. (more…)

Chapter 15: The Kazekama and Kousei

“What?! For real?”

I try to keep my voice hushed so Daiki-san doesn’t notice, but … un.

Even if I say pretty words like I try to avoid pulling people into the supernatural side of things, it seems a little late for the consideration.

“It often happens that people with stronger spiritual powers intrude on barriers.”

“…Is it my fault?”

I don’t know why I felt like I had to ask. Morbid curiosity.

“If I had to guess…”

Honoka pauses, tilting her head and thinking deeply.

“…It’s definitely not Daiki-san.”

“Gah-!”

I’ve never experienced a disappointment so strong that I actually almost fell over.

Hunched over, I semi-glare at Honoka.

“I could have told you that!” (more…)

Chapter 14: Food and Shopping

“What? Supervisor Endo was so mad he made all of Unit 1 go home already? That’s hilarious!”

Pounding her thigh with one hand and laughing “hyahyahya!” in a very ungraceful manner was the woman with a pink streak in her long ponytail.

“Cheh. We really need someone who can talk to people better. No wonder Unit 1 hates our guts. They do all that annoyin’ investigation work, and then we swoop in and nick it.”

The yakuza mob-looking man clenched his teeth in irritation as he said that, but made no sign to look up from his game.

Just like that, glued to the screen and with his thumbs tapping, he continued.

“But what do we got? Jurou’s a passive aggressive dwarf, Gakuto just fades into the background, and Katsumi’s a mouthy bitch.” (more…)
