Here’s another great episode in the making (as always)! Man, I feel that I’m praising this show too much!
Anyways, walking beside Shoutarou-kun is police officer Hiroki Utsumi, who always try keeping Sakurako-san away at the crime scene (to no avail) and now he’s off-duty today. Of course, he’s not here to relax…
…as Utsumi asked Sakurako-san for help regarding his friend Fujioka-san, who is about to die soon because of a curse that was passed down to generation after generation.
While Fujioka is perfectly fine (apart from coughing occasionally), he feared about the family curse despite having a beautiful wife and daughter.
That curse involves Fujioka’s dog Hector as well as a painting that was kept in a storage area. Normally, Sakurako finds it absurd as there’s no clear connection between the death of his family (which occur among male members) and the curse itself.
However, I have a gut feeling that Fujioka is planning his death as if he’s been hit by the family curse.
So when Sakurako asked him regarding the cursed painting, Fujioka-san hesitates as if he’s hiding something. That’s an indication that there’s a secret behind the family curse!
Tune in next week to find out the answer when Sakurako and Shoutarou solves this mystery…
