|“||What does anyone else have to do with me?||”|
A frail and gloomy young man with an ability to control marionette, he suffers from ambylopia due to the fact that he has been living at the bottom of the sea for most of his life. Consequently, he cannot see things clearly and instead relies on his sense of smell to discern between Fallen Angels, Food Souls and humans. The marionette he controls is a beautiful female girl aged around 12 years old and in her hand is a lantern that exudes Soul Power to attract Fallen Angels. After using the girl to lure in Fallen Angels, he would then proceed to kill them using exceptionally cruel methods.
Monkfish is also a type of anglerfish. In Japan, there is a saying "Fugu in Kansai, Anko in Kanto". Based on how much the Japanese loves pufferfish, this saying is testament to the delicacy of anglerfish is comparable to pufferfish. Its liver is called "The Foie Gras of the sea" and just like foie gras, Ankimo is delicate, fresh and is enough to leave an aftertaste in one's mouth.

Humph, hello, ignorant humans. My name is Hinako.
This gloomy idiot behind me is my servant. Ugh, it makes me angry to mention this guy.
If not we are being connected by fate at the beginning, I won’t keep this plain, dull guy next to me.
You should know that right? We are called as “Yokai” in Sakurajima. Indeed, we are quite different from humans.
Let's say the idiot behind me.
On the day we “reincarnated”, we were really hungry…… Really, really hungry……
Don’t know if you ever experience that hunger.
Just like a burning fire, burning from your stomach to the throat. The stomach acid corrodes the stomach wall, the burning spreads all over the belly, trying to digest the organs.
You wanna throw up but nothing you can vomit.
Hunger, just like a beast, makes you swallow everything in front of you. The world in your eyes shaking fiercely, like the world may reverse at any time.
No matter how hard you scream, or pray, the hunger that can never be fulfilled, always follows you.
Just like you were controlled by an irresistible force. So you should understand why we are looking for food in between the human’s screaming, right?
“Monster!!! Get off, you monster!!!!!!!”
Monster? How cute I am, how come I’m a monster?
With a crunching noise, I turn my head confusedly.
Then I found out, the crunching noise was coming from my joint. My arms twisting into an unbelievable angle, they fold, twist, shake with a weird look.
But why don’t I feel hurt?
…… Right. I just remember. I can’t feel hurt. Because I’m not “human” Nor “Yokai”.
I. Am a “puppet”.
A puppet belongs to Ankimo, that idiot.
Hi-Hi, Ni-Nice to meet you. I-I’m Ankimo.
I-I’m Hinako’s servant. I…… I……
I-I’m a “Yokai”.
People said I represent the ominous.
Indeed I brought an ominous Hinako.
And because of this ominousness that I was born with. On the day we “reincarnated”, we had been covered with hunger.
A normal hunger can be tolerated, but when a hunger that can kill your mind is oncoming, I always lose my mind.
But Hinako didn’t give me up. She talked to me, and she told me what she wanted too.
Hinako is just that cute, she has the most beautiful black hair in this world. Her eyes seem to be reflecting the galaxy. A prettier dress can only make her beauty more amazing.
Me-Me such a dirty man, how come I can be Hinako’s servant……
Every time I’m controlled by hunger, and after I awake, I’m always colored by a nasty red.
That is a red that doesn’t match with me.
From the human’s fear, I know I’ve done something like a “monster” again.
The weird corpse that doesn’t form a shape is being attractive for an unknown reason.
“Run! As the monster cannibalizes each other! Let’s run!”
The humans run screaming, I swallow subconsciously while looking at the corpse.
“Idiot…… I’m… hungry…… Idiot…… I’m hungry……”
Hinako’s weak voice is still echoing around my ears.
“Idiot…… Idiot…… You want me to be hungry?……” “I-I don’t!” “Then eat…… Eat…… Its “liver” can make us not hungry……” “Re-Really……” “Idiot! How dare you doubt me!”
Liver, does taste good……
“Cough, You… are…… Cough……”
Hinako hides behind me scaredly, her white hands hold my cloth tightly, and take a look at that weak man stealthily.
“Idiot, is this guy sick, let him go hurriedly, don’t infect me!” “Hi-Hinako……”
I look up, this man carrying a medicine kit, his face has some unusual darkness.
Compared to the “dead men”, “monster corpses” I saw, he is less lively than those.
“You… two, cough, are the “Yokais” who are looking for livers? Cough cough……”
The look of this man coughing, just like he is gonna cough out his lungs. With his weak, heavy breath, he walks slowly to me, walking around me and Hinako.
Hinako looks scared, she holds tight to me, shrinks behind me. But she seems curious to this man, sometimes sneaks out and stares at this man.
This is the first time someone has come close to us.
Unlike the people attracted by the lantern light of Hinako, this man didn’t scream when he saw me eating the monster’s liver. He walks around us repeatedly, full of excitement in his eyes.
Although he kept coughing, he still didn't stop. Later, his sight stopped on me.
…… He… is weird……
Even when I act normal, most people always keep their sight on beautiful Hinako.
Although this doesn’t make me hate this man like I hate those humans, but…… His sight makes me uncomfortable……
I never saw eyes like this.
The people lured by Hinako always look at her with obsession…… Those monsters lured by Hinako always look at her with greed……
I’m familiar with those eyes looking at Hinako.
Those people always look at me with fear. Those monsters always look at me with craziness.
I’m familiar with those eyes looking at me.
But this man is different from others, his face has glasses on it, the transparent glass reflecting my face.
It is still the plain, dirty look that Hinako doesn’t like.
The eyes behind the glasses look clear and focusing, flashing some light that is too bright for me.
“Interesting…… Do you… wanna be my test body……”
That man finally speaks a complete sentence without coughing.
“Humph, how dare you didn’t look at me, bastard! Look at me!!”
Perhaps the contemplation of that man angers Hinako, she changes her afraid look and runs in front of me, and kicks that man’s leg violently.
I barely saw her being so mad……
“How dare you stare at my servant like that! He is my servant! Who allowed you to stare at him?!”
Ah…… Sure enough, Hinako still cares about me……
Thump—— With a thumping sound, that weak man falls on the ground with Hinako’s light kick.
“I-I didn’t kick too hard!!!!!”
Hinako like a scared little beast, sneaks back behind me but still sneaks out her head to look at that man on the floor.
“Cough, sorry… for scaring you…… The medicine I was testing yesterday… is still working……”
The man gets up wobbly.
“Idiot, he looks weaker than you.”
Hinako’s low voice comes from behind me.
“Cough, don’t worry…… Cough cough……”
It is still the coughing that seems he is gonna cough out his lungs, but his speaking is particularly steady.
“I’m Fugu Sashimi, or—— The “Pharmacist” of the Hyakubun House.”
Ah…… Hyakubun House…… What’s it again……
I remember…… I heard it before…… They said… The Hyakubun House has an elixir that can cure any illness……
“Do you want, cough…… Ms. Hinako…… Cough…… not hungry anymore?……”
After all, My dumb servant and I follow that guy who called himself “Pharmacist” to the so-called Hyakubun House.
That is a paper door standing on an empty hilltop, which has weird patterns drawn on it.
“Cough, here…… Cough cough…… Here is the entrance……”
The flimsy door just stands on the hilltop lonely, that sick man coughs and opens the door, and let us go in.
Is he an idiot? This door is like furnishing! Aren’t we still on this mountain after walking through it!!
Humph, this guy must be making fun of my dumb servant.
“Bastard, are you fooling us! I won’t be fooled!” “Cough, Ms. Hinako…… I’m not… fooling you…… Cough cough……
…… Tsk, troublesome.
Talking to this guy is just like he's gonna fall in front of me at any time.
“Cough, please have a try…… Cough cough……” “Ah, fine, fine, don’t talk again! I’ll just try, okay!!! The coughing is annoying!!! Idiot, bring me there!” “O-Okay Hinako.”
In the dumb servant’s arms, I close my eyes and go through the door.
“See, it is just……”
I open my eyes, the view in front of me just shut my mouth, the empty mountain suddenly changed into a washitsu full of medicine-smelling after we walked through the door.
“Achoo——” “Hi-Hinako…… Are you okay?” “Humph, I won’t sneeze!” “…… Ouch…… Hinako…… It hurts……”
I step on him with my tiptoe violently and keep looking around.
“Cough…… Sorry…… This is my medicine room…… Cough……”
The man turns back and closes the washitsu door, and the paper door suddenly disappears, which becomes a full medicine cabinet.
The dumb servant throws weird eyes at me, I promptly clear my throat and stand up.
“What is the way you said that can stop us from being hungry?
The man who called himself a pharmacist didn’t reply. He hunches his back and climbs up a ladder aside, the wobbly look makes me doubt that he would fall at any time.
The finding sound continued for a long time, the man finally found something in the cabinet on the top.
It is a little bottle that would make a sound when you shake it, it looks like it’s empty.
“Cough…… Eat it.”
That white bottle that is kinda spooky under the candlelight is cold and exuding chill, I look at the dumb servant take the medicine bottle, can’t help but swallow.
“Hinako…… Can… we eat it……” “…… Of-Of course not! Are you the little kid in those villages! Dare to put any stranger’s food in your mouth!” “But……” “Shut up, let me think!”
I let the idiot shut up with anxiety, I stare at the little bottle which has an abnormal look.
The hunger that was restrained after the killing started to spread in my body again, the terrible feeling like burning the soul, is ripping my mind.
“Monster!!!!!! You monster!!!!!!!” “Get off, monster!!!!!!!!!!” “Go get off!!!!!!! We’re not welcoming you!!!!!!”
The look when people screaming at us shows up in my mind, I hold my arms tightly.
I’m not a monster. Don’t look at me like that.
I’m hungry…… I just don’t wanna be hungry.
I’m hungry…… Only the monster’s livers can temporarily fulfill the hunger.
“Do you not want it……”
The man speaks calmly, he reaches his hand out, wanna take back the bottle from the dumb servant.
“Bastard! The thing you give to me! It is mine! Eat it!”
I take the bottle and put the only pill into the dumb servant’s mouth.
“Hey—————— Pharmacist—— I’ve helped you to find a test body, why don’t you accompany me——“
A whiny voice with a charming ending, the flirtatiousness in the words is afraid that most men can't stand it.
But for this young man, apparently he is not in the most men's range. “Cough…… Housemaster, I didn’t agree to accompany you after I found a test body, cough cough.” “Eh—— But the others will accompany me——” “Don’t confuse me with those “humans”…… Cough……”
The noise of pounding medicine continued, the young man just like he didn’t hear the voice behind, he kept putting strange medicine into the medicine bowl.
“‘Hey, Poisoner, where is my food for today!’ Hinako said……”
The teen voice was soft, and with a bit of timidity, the voidly weak feeling made others outline a gloomy, weak teen in their mind.
But the first sight after turning the head back, was a girl who is pretty as flowers.
The girl wearing a complicated but pretty dress, the look when she tilted up her chin can attract everyone’s eyes.
“‘Humph, are you amazed, Poisoner, this is the new dress that my dumb servant prepared for me, does it look good?’ Hinako asked……”
The teen’s weak voice came from behind the girl, a sentence with two different tones, which is ridiculous like the crappy actor who made money from puppet shows on the streets.
But no one cared about the unusualness, the young man who was pounding the medicine just held up the bowl calmly, he poured and mixed the liquid into the prepared medicine aside.
With the young man’s deft movement, a pill appeared in his hand soon.
The teen reached out his hand and take over the pill from the pharmacist’s hand, then with a gulping sound, the black, strange pill was swallowed.
“‘Phew—— Though it isn’t fulfilling like having livers, it’s better than before, Poisoner you did improve! Hinako said……”
The teen’s timid voice didn’t get a reply from the pharmacist, so the wordless him just shrank himself into his corner.
“Recently, cough…… Did Ms. Hinako feel better?” “Ye-Yes!” “Is it? That’s great.” “‘Then we gotta go, Poisoner!’ Hinako said.”
Slam—— As the door closed.
The pounding sound started again in the washitsu.
“What a badass~ The puppet could never become a real “Yokai” or “human”, and you still use this as a reason to let him become your test body~” “Cough…… This kinda physique that can swallow “monsters” but won’t get infected is too rare. If I miss it, I may not get another one.”
