Introduction[edit | edit source]

~The final truth~

- Massacre Chapter -
This story introduces the unit inside and out, using all the actors.
This is no longer a story, it's a public autopsy for all to join.
As they say, after loving someone,
cut open their belly and eat their organs.
It's the same with stories.
The difficulty is quite mild. Well suited for those with pride.
