It has been a month, it passed away, the old man looked at his son in a way that was different from before. He gives Kazuto more workloads to reduce the time he spends with Professor Mizuno. She senses what Masaki is planning to do and thus tries her best to find the time to talk to Kazuto.
However, he’s slow on the intake; the homunculus just follows whatever his father orders him to do. Professor Mizuno bit her lips as she sees Masaki’s actions toward his son, Mizuno calls her son to arrange a meeting behind Masaki’s back. Kazuto glances at the professor, wanting to talk to her but he keeps being distracted by his father.
His father keeps assigning him some task that requires him to kill people on the spot. Masaki smiles at her satisfyingly, knowing that the woman knows what she’s up to. Kazuto smiles at the man, knowing that the man gives him more souls to eat. The more souls he eats, the more powerful he is.
Masaki is planning to build him as a perfect killer that he can utilize in his mission. If Masaki’s mission succeeds, then the homunculus will no longer have a future. It has to be now, the woman then proceeds to execute the plan. She won’t delay her plans anymore further. Tonight will be the day where she evacuates him.

“Wake up” the woman wakes Kazuto up from his slumber.
Kazuto smiles as soon as he sees the familiar woman before him. He misses her so much that he instinctively hugs her. Professor Mizuno hugs him back warmly. She then hurries him to get up, of course, surprising the homunculus. The woman then dresses him neatly as she then cups his forehead.
“Um, what happened?” the homunculus asks the woman.
“Just follow me Kazuto-”.
However, when she was about to take him away the father gets in forcefully into Kazuto’s room. The woman was caught red-handed by the man who raises him. The woman shields the puzzled homunculus behind her, Masaki is furious with the woman involved in his personal affair.
For him, the woman is merely a scientist that has no relation to his family affair. As the man slowly walks toward the professor, she backs away while shielding Kazuto behind her. The only thing she receives was a slap on her cheek. After that the man pulls her away from the homunculus, seeing how his father treats her like trash pains the homunculus.
“Stop it! Father!” he pushes his father away from her, the glare on the homunculus face is visible enough for Masaki to know that he angers his son.
Professor Mizuno breaks free from his villainy father’s grasp, but nonetheless, she was powerless to stop him. Kazuto growls as he instinctively carries her away from the man that hurts her. Kazuto carries professor Mizuno’s bridal style, through the window in his room. He lands on the bushes perfectly.
His eyes glow brightly as the man looks antagonistically toward the father who raises him. However, rather than joyous; the woman is concerned about Kazuto’s aggressiveness. She’s afraid that the young man will hurt himself more if he keeps protecting her. The scientist told the young man to set him down.
“But professor, my father might kill you-”.
Without any further ado, the scientist injected something into the young man’s body. At that moment, he can feel his body jolt. He slowly lost his consciousness, but he can feel someone carrying him. It seems to be a hooded man showing up out of nowhere. There’s a commotion at the front gate, a truck is ramming through Masaki’s mansion gate.
Kazuto barely could open his eyes due to the injection, the woman seems to rush the hooded man something.
“Take this child away! Please!” the woman urges the hooded man to take the unconscious homunculus away.
Kazuto blinks his eyes as he was thrown in the passenger seat of the truck, the man drives next to him but the young homunculus realizes something. He doesn’t see any sign of Professor Mizuno anywhere. There’s a scream next to him, the sound of the hooded man screaming for Professor Mizuno’s names painfully.
Kazuto is too drowsy to even know what happens, Professor Mizuno drugs him and he feels his head turn hot. He gives in to his sleepiness amidst the havoc they’re in.
* * *
It was a few hours passed by, the truck drives on as the mysterious truck driver cries for an unknown reason. Kazuto is still sleeping peacefully on the passenger’s seat, a note was given to the truck driver before they left the mansion premise.
The truck driver reads the content of the note, the scientist not only drugs the homunculus to sleep but also drugs him to lose his memories of the day he was kidnapped away from Masaki’s possession. The mysterious driver will deliver the homunculus to Ikebukuro as promised, that’s what he promised toward Mizuno.
“Damn that woman leaving me behind” the driver cries while he drives the truck away from his pursuers. The homunculus has yet to wake up to see how many people are going after the driver’s head. Not even the sound of gunshot woke up the homunculus, the streets are engulfed with the sound of screams and screeching tires.
“DAMN IT! THIS LITTLE PIECE OF SHIT IS THE CAUSE OF MIZUNO’S DEATH!” the driver cries as he tried his best to run away.
* * *
The homunculus is drowning in pit sand, an unending hole in which he drowns. In that pit hole, he can feel his mind slowly rotting as the memories with him dissolve into nothingness. The warm voice that calls him out during his down days.
He doesn’t understand the reason why his memory disintegrates and the fact that the panicked face of Professor Mizuno face disappears from his mind. He doesn’t want to forget but in the end, he returns to his old innocent self that doesn’t know anything.
“Why does it hurt inside?” the homunculus thought to himself.
Kazuto blinks his eyes as he is awakened in a motel room, his head feels like spinning. The young man looked at the piece of paper on the nightstand, it’s paper with writing on it. Something was written on it, instructing the man to get dressed and go to the city where the paper instructed.Kazuto doesn’t remember what happens before, but all he knew that he has to follow the instruction on the paper. The young man dresses up, he prepares his suitcase that is already displayed next to his bed. It was written by none other than Professor Mizuno, he knows her handwriting pretty well.The young man then went off from the motel, with cash in his hand. He paid the motel counter with the cash the Professor prepared. He was later instructed to get on a subway train toward Ikebukuro. In his head, the professor must have sent him
Inside the apartment is nothing but an empty room, the room is not that big. The size of the apartment is studio-sized, while the living room space is minimalist. The kitchen is right next to the dusty grey couch. Kazuto enters the dusty room, finding any sign whether there’s a sign of someone used to live here.Sitting on the grey couch is a small wide table with a LED television. Kazuto explores the room next to the living room. Inside the small room, there’s nothing but dust and boxes inside. Unpacking the boxes, he finds several books and decorations in the card boxes. He’s unsure of what he needs to do with the boxes, regardless he’s clueless about what he wants to do.Just when he’s about to unpack the whole thing, there’s a soft knock on the door. Kazuto warily walk to the entrance, peeking
It was another day for the homunculus to survive, his stomach is growling in hunger as he looks inside the fridge. It’s nothing but an empty fridge on display. He needs to buy something to eat, but as far as he concerns the Homunculus is just a few years old, unable to do chores by himself since he used to be pampered by his so-called father.The only thing he could make was a tepid coffee that Mizuno taught him, he likes the americano particularly. Iced americano particularly feels fresh for the homunculus to drink, he finds it strange afterward that he’s unable to sleep after drinking that delicious drink. He’s unknown to the liquids substances and the caffeine he chugged on for years affects his sleeping schedule.Mizuno once scolded him for being addicted to the caffeine, but it was too late for Kazuto since he&
Shinzou is painting in his bedroom, fully focusing his attention on the canvas in front of him. He was never been a science whiz himself so unlike his mother; the man doesn’t care about her mother’s job as a scientist. Even if she urges him to embrace his bloodline, the only thing he feels for science is hatred since her fascination toward science makes her stray from him.She never comes to see him amidst her projects, her fascination turns into an addiction that makes the whole family become a mess soon after. Divorced and taken by the mother, Shinzou regrets the decision since he was left behind in the house to look after himself. Her mother is preoccupied with her job, barely shows her presence to the lonely child.The luxurious apartment they purchased isn’t exactly heavenly to him now that he knew something wa
Hunger takes over his senses when the man can feel his stomach grumbling due to hunger. The last thing the homunculus remembered was the familiar face of the crimson tuxedo informant entering his view. After hours has passed, the fatigue and hunger took a toll on his entire body. He’s hungry for a soul to devour. However, the informant's images keep popping into his brain. Blossoming into the homunculus gray-colored brain. Sadly enough, his quiet time didn’t last that long. The sound of footsteps resonates in the hallway, alerting the homunculus about the presence of strangers gathering in front of his apartment. Kazuto goes into his bedroom, uncertain about what he should do next. He remembered the words from the professor were not to attract attention. However, he was beyond hungry at that point. He’s starved for human souls, and the berating sound of a metal baseball bat irritates Kazuto’s ears. His scarlet pupils shine in the darkness, an entity whispering inside his mind for
“I love you, Kazuto” the woman spoke in the boy’s mind. Kazuto who passed out earlier was immediately awakened by the voice of Professor Mizuno. He gasped when he saw the men in his house were all bathed in crimson liquid. The homunculus touched them, but none of them move from the floor. Their eyes are peeled open as if horrified by something that just occurred. Kazuto knew that it was her doing, the Goddess of Death made her movement. He was hungry for souls, but now he no longer feels that hunger. He can surmise that the Goddess of Death has satiated their hunger. Each of the men's chest and arteries are ripped brutally, his room is the perfect crime scene for a slaughterhouse.Kazuto still remembers the professor's messages, and that is not to cause any scene. However, he already causes a huge scene in the apartment he’s going to stay in. He’s quite surprised that no one has entered the apartment to report the violence and murder he committed. It was an old apartment, but there
The cleaners manage to clean Kazuto’s apartment, and no blood is to be spotted in that apartment. They clean the apartment, spotless from the red liquid and any corpses. The kids did their job well, Shu can sense the money will flow into his account. He had to divide the money amongst them.Even though Shu hates Cain’s guts, he saves them from starvation and abandonment. He only wants to return the favor to Cain, even if Cain never asked for anything back. However, it was personal for Shu. The teenager dislikes being in a debt, to someone else. However, it was his first time seeing Cain taking interest in a puny-looking human.The white-haired young man looks as if he’s an ill man waiting for someone to pick him up. He’s certainly not the sharpest man for following Cain. The informant smells bad news, nothing about Cain is sincere and genuine. He lies as he breathes, the ultimate trickster that will never cease to disturb your day if you possess something he wants to have.“Is that gu
It was strange to see the homunculus sleeping in his residence. A peculiar feeling occupies the informant's mind as he sees the young man lying on the sofa, sleeping with tuna sushi still inside his mouth. Cain can’t help but feel rather disappointed with the homunculus, he was expecting a smarter being, a Godlike human who can use the bestowed power cleverly. However, Kazuto was far from smart, he’s a clueless boy who knows nothing about the evilness in the world. Cain was expecting someone who is orderly, cunning, and evil to the core. He investigated the young man after all, who he truly is. A homunculus that had the soul of Izanami, the Goddess of Death. Cain touches Kazuto’s cheek, pinching his flesh to wake him up. He wants to tell him to go to his spare bedroom, but the young man is too sleepy to wake up. Cain carries him
