-We open with Yoriko in a candlelit room introducing us to the tale that we're about to see...A tale of screams & fears that happened on a very hot summer day. And it's all true!
-It's supposed to get up to 40 degrees C (104 degrees F) today? Man, that's hot!
We didn't know that you're THAT superstitious, Ken! And besides, Saori accidentally dropped her ice cream cone on your head so that doesn't really count as a bad omen, does it?
-Even a fortune read by Yoriko seems to forecast bad luck for Ken today! Uh oh, now Kaneko's dropped her ice cream cone (Knocked from her hand by a soda can dropped by a passing bird)-Look out, Ken!
-Nice save on the can, Natsumi! Sounds like you broke something in those trees though-Let's take a look, shall we?
-Doesn't it seem a bit dark & chilly in these trees? Oh wait-There it is!
Relax, Miyuki-The soda can damaged a small shrine here. You should fix it ASAP, Natsumi! And apologize! NOW!
-Not only is the talisman torn but in trying to fix it Natsumi accidentally breaks off one of the shrine's doors! A possible curse, huh? I've got a bad feeling about this...
BTW, I didn't know that Miyuki could move that fast! Don't worry, Miyuki...Natsumi & Ken will fix it later, OK?
-OK guys, we know the air conditioning's out of order so you can stop drooling over Aoi's "cleavage" now! Also, Miyuki's technical expertise doesn't extend to AC units so you'll all have to deal with the heat until the AC's fixed tomorrow. The Chief seems to be handling the heat very well though-He's one "cool" cat, isn't he?
-Enough! Miyuki, let's go on patrol!
A good idea except that once on patrol they find out the AC in "Today" isn't working either (Even though it was working fine yesterday)...And that's not all! The brakes!
At least the emergency brake works & just in time, too! But once back at Bokuto Station Miyuki can find nothing wrong with the brakes-Why did this happen?
-Things are starting to get freaky now: First Yoriko hears a woman's voice over her headset saying "I won't forgive you" as she's dispatching a police unit to an accident scene & then in the women's bathroom Saori also hears the same woman's voice even though she's the only person in there! The ghost of the legendary "Weeping Policewoman"?
-After Kaneko leaves for the day & Ken goes to make tea, Miyuki finds herself all alone in the squad room. It's already dark outside with a thunderstorm rolling through so Miyuki's not having a good night so far...And now the building's power has gone out!
Wait a minute-What's that on the hallway floor???? EEYAHHH!!!!
Once down the hallway Miyuki runs into...A poltergeist? NOOO!!!
-Ken comes back to the squad room & finds Miyuki gone but he also finds what scared Miyuki so: The "poltergeist" was actually Natsumi who accidentally spilled some somen on her head when she slipped in the hallway & the object on the floor was the head of crash dummy that Saori was looking for.
-Don't scare us like that, Yoriko! So you think that the "Weeping Policewoman" (Whose dream of marriage was cut short due to a traffic accident) is after Miyuki?
Ken's on the way, Miyuki-Hang in there!
-Yikes, it's the "Weeping Policewoman"! Oh, it's only Aoi-Thank goodness!
Also, the Chief just came in to warn everyone about the water in the hallway so...What are you all looking at? My pants-No, it's not what you think! I just slipped & fell in the hallway...Really, I did!
-Ken's search for Miyuki leads him into the archive room where he finds...Miyuki?
His flashlight also gives out right then but it must be her, right?
Meanwhile, Natsumi goes out to the shrine & with Aoi's help repairs it so that it's good as new (Almost, anyway) along with apologizing for breaking it.
-The power's back on! The curse is lifted!
What's that, Ken...You said that Miyuki would follow you forever? Where did he get that from? Speaking of Miyuki...
...Here she is, carrying a toolbox! Apparently she had been working to repair a short in the building's switchboard after noticing that the auxiliary power didn't kick in when the lights went out. She was also working alone so if that was the case then who was Ken with all this time?
-Looks like Ken's going to be a happy man for a while...But the real terror is yet to come? Probably once he finds out who "Miyuki" really is...A girlfriend from the afterlife, eh?
