Kage Onna
Story: Kawamura Kanako (Sugisaki Hana) moves to the apartment that Natsuno (Yokosawa Natsuko), her senior at her part-time job, had lived in until recently, and begins her dream life of living alone. However, there is something like a small black spot on the bedroom wall. At first, Kanako does not care about it. But this spot grows larger every day and starts becoming human-like in shape. “Natsuno-san knew something of the situation but hid it?” Kanako’s good friend Ayami (Ishii Anna) tells her to press Natsuno for an explanation. However, Kanako hesitates even though she acknowledges that it is a “little strange” because she cannot bring herself to do this to her senior whom she is grateful to. Meanwhile, Kanako explains the situation to the landlord and is relieved to have the wallpaper replaced. But right after this, a bigger human-like black spot comes out.
Cast: Sugisaki Hana, Ishii Anna, Shirasu Jin, Yokosawa Natsuko
