Episode 4: The Run
Rohan meets a young man named Yoma Hashimoto (Sho Kasamatsu) at a members-only gym. Yoma is a fledgling model, a lethargic and elusive young man who starts going to the gym after his office president orders him to “build up his body”. However, after this day, Yoma becomes obsessed with running, and his obsession with “running” gradually goes beyond the norm. Yoma shows up in front of Rohan one day for the first time after a while, appearing much more confident. He then proposes to Rohan that they have a running contest on treadmills.
Episode 5: From Behind
A man named Masazo Kinoto (Ennosuke Ichikawa), who works in the sales department of a company that undertakes resort development, comes to Rohan’s house. When he invites him in, the man comes crawling in with his back against the wall. When he took off his shoes, sat down on a chair, and drank tea, he smiled affectionately, but never showed his back to Rohan. This strange behavior aroused Rohan’s curiosity, and he forced himself to look at the man’s back. Suddenly, something abnormal attacks Kinoto since his back was seen, and then moves on to affect Rohan.
Episode 6: Mutsu-kabe Hill
Rohan goes bankrupt after purchasing a forest on Mutsu-kabezaka Village for the sole purpose of reporting on the legend of a yokai lurking there. Rohan visits the village with Kyoka in pursuit of the mystery of the legend, but finds no clues. Just then, Rohan is confronted by the heiress of the most prominent family in the village, Naoko Osato (Rio Uchida). Naoko tries to find out the reason why Rohan visited the village, but it seems that she herself is hiding something. After reading Naoko’s memories with Heaven’s Door, Rohan learns the shocking truth about Naoko and Mutsu-kabe Hill.
Marie Iitoyo reprises her role as Rohan’s editor, Kyoka Izumi. In the adaptation of Episode 6, her character is replacing the role of Minoru Kaigamori, a male editor of Rohan.
