[Enra Series #4] The Centaur
SIGN: Satsuma Kengorou
2: You're Akarinashi Enra-san, the freelance exorcist, correct?
3: I've been waiting for you.
1: As you can see, my yard's a mess. It's all covered in horseshoe marks, as well..
2: Is there a wild horse running around?
1: A horse monster would be a more precise term, I suppose. Please come upstairs.
2: Wow! They're even on the ceiling.
3: It always goes wild at night.
4: Here it is.
3: No way...
4: And it's female!
5: But how?!
*: A half-man, half-horse creature that appears in old myths.
2: Her upper half looks worn and beaten, but her bottom half looks shiny and brand new...
3: Really? My hobby is collecting unusual stuffed animals, and this is supposedly an antique from the 19th century that I had to work very hard to buy from a European dealer...
4: A... stuffed animal?
5: This is stuffed?
6: /My cousin, Akarinashi Enra,
7: /is a middler schooler at an all girls' school. She's also a slightly famous exorcist.
1: /In her spare time, she works to help people
2: /who are suffering from supernatural problems.
3: OK, Amane. Call mom and tell her
4: we'll be staying overnight here.
5: /I'm Kusugi Amane,
6: /her clever manager!
7: You need to pay 300,000 up front before the exorcism!
8: And don't tell Madame Enra about this!
SFX: DING DONG
2: Shouldn't be too long now...
3: According to what the man said,
4: it usually gets up around this hour.
1: These things are all so creepy...
2: No matter how you look at them.
3: Who would collect these things?!
4: What is this even supposed to be?
5: It's gotta be a fake, right?
1: Do you remember seeing that TV show that talked about how there was supposedly a mermaid mummy at some temple somewhere?
2: (Mullet's trail
2: (Monkey's head
3: (Smoked to a crisp
SIGN: Holy body
4: These are all like that, right?
5: What about her, then?
6: Someone probably just took the body of a horse
7: and attached it to a mannequin!
1: Wh... what was that?!
2: Her face looks really realistic for a doll...
3: Hey, Amane, look around...
4: I just took a look myself, but...
5: they are indeed fakes.
6: Humans are bizarre creatures who seem to enjoy using dead animal bodies as toys.
7: Creating these sorts of things is an act of blasphemy against the god who gave them their shapes.
1: The same goes
2: for her!
3: The horse body is real, but...
SFX: KNOCK KNOCK
4: her upper half is just a skillfully designed doll.
5: It's just a 100-year old antique...
1: The power went out!
2: Enra! Did you just see the horse...
3: Shh! Amane! Be quiet!
SFX: CLOP CLOP
4: That sound!
5: it sounds like hooves...
SFX: CLOP CLOP
6: A-Amane! It's too dangerous to stay in here! Let's run outside!
7: I thought we were supposed to wait in here for something, Enra?!
1: It's... angry?!
3: It looks really angry!
6: /This horse's body...
7: What is it?
8: What's going on? Did it wake up again?!
2: Amane! Just stay there!
3: I know why the horse is so angry!
4: Leave this to me!
SFX: CLOP CLOP
1: This way, horsey!
2: /Time to set you free!
3: This way!
5: Spirit yo-yo!
1: Spirit thread bind!
1: Mom, can you please come pick us up in the van?
2: I found a patient I want to care for.
3: You're taking them both with you, Enra? Amane, take a look at the horse's body.
1: /Woah... it's huge...
2: That horse's body is male.
3: That's what she was so angry about.
4: She didn't want to be stuck to a male body... uh, Enra, what about the collector?
5: Leave him here!
6: (Still knocked out
7: She may be a doll,
8: but she's still a woman!
