Noticing a scar on the kidnapper's arm that resembles the kanji for "fire," Senri vows to hunt down this "Fire Man." Thirteen years later, Senri is no closer to finding the elusive Fire Man, and the visions from Kazuto have long since ceased. But just when it seems like he has no leads, he spots a man on TV with the same scar as his brother's kidnapper.
