Additionally, a commemorative present campaign for an autographed script was started just before episode 18 first aired! (Please note: applications from outside Japan are currently unavailable).
It has also been announced that the sale of original frame stamps will also begin!
【Episode 18 “Confrontation”】
Shinpei came to Hito Shrine and visited with the priest Karikiri. Shinpei showed him a photo taken 70 years ago, and the photo included Karikiri bearing his present-day appearance. Shinpei cross-examines him, determining whether he is indeed the first head of Hishigata Clinic: Hishigata Shidehiko = “Shide”.
Before long, Shinpei learns that he is facing down the enemy of the deceased parents, and has to bring Shide down. However, while hesitating to kill Shidehiko who holds the form of a living human and not a “shadow”, Shinpei notices something off about Karikiri’s appearance.
