2: They're feisty little ones, aren't they? I have one on the back of my head right now!
4: Stop dumping your misfortune on other people!
5: Or else I'm going to charge you for damages!
6: I see...

2: They stopped coming for us.
4: All of a sudden...
5: I feel really exhausted...
7: What's that around your neck?!
1: One of the Mandaragi seeds got really big...
2: and it looks just like you now!
3: That's right.

4: Just like me!
5: That's right! That withered husk down there
6: is the real manager who sent you a letter!
7: You were too late!!
1: Spirit Yo-yo!
2: You can't stop us unless you cut down the source! Now diiiiie!
3: Yo-yo Windmill!!
1: Phew... I was afraid the tree was going to let out one of those screams. They all dried up in an instant, though...
2: What should we do with the dried up manager?
3: I think if we place him in water, he'll turn back to normal, now that the source is dead.
4: She didn't even have time to scream before she died.
5: What are you doing, Enra?
6: Cleaning her up.
7: She didn't do anything wrong, after all...
