However, when he gets there he discovers that Egos has captured the village elders and if he tries to resist, they will all be killed. They then drug him, so that he can’t speak, and when he is elected as the kami, they use the religious trial to torture him. When the Kyosuke and Shiro arrives to participate in the festival, Masao uses eye morse code to inform Kyosuke of the hostages. However, in their rescue attempt they are captured with the villagers and trapped with a bomb. It’s up to Kensaku and Maria to rescue everyone before it’s too late.
