Another Episode 4 — Put Flesh
Published January 30, 2012
A week following Yukari's death, Kōichi has lunch with Sanae to ask her thoughts on Mei and the story from 26 years ago. Afterwards, he encounters another classmate, Aya Ayano, whom he manages to save when they are nearly crushed by a falling sheet of glass. She promptly breaks down in tears, screaming: "I don't want to die!" Kōichi later goes to the puppet store to see Mei, but she refuses to tell him the rest of the story. As Sanae contacts Kōichi the next day over whether Mei actually exists or not, she is killed when the elevator she is riding falls down the shaft and crushes her.
