Chapter 4: Never-Ending Nightmare
Remember the man hanging from the cross in the last episode? He has some interesting information to share.
The island where the group is stranded is some sort of human disposal. The man they saved recalls another group that was dumped in it by the Yakuza and tells them that people who are a threat to the government or businesses are left in there to rot – Long story short: no one is coming to save them.
Uehara, being the smart young lady she is, notices that the man wasn’t hanging like the others. Apart from being the only one alive, he didn’t have nails hammered in his hands and feet, so suspicion about him being partners with Kaoru arise, which they are somewhat right. The man is what he calls a caretaker.
Another very important piece of information given by the man, which sparks a lot of hope in Uehara, is that Kaoru doesn’t kill people immediately. He calls his captives sacrifices/offerings and Kaoru enjoys torturing and slowly killing them before he decides to eat them. The man was hanged because he had let one of the victims escape.
By the time the group gets to the village, the sun is going down. And it doesn’t seem like a good thing at all.
This is getting crazier as we go! We still don’t have much information about the people from the island, do you believe that they are from the religious group talked about in chapter 3? Also, what does this man mean about being the caretaker? He didn’t elaborate much about his role so it makes me really curious.
