SynopsisEdit

Yoshida Wants a Cat

Yoshida wants a stuffed cat.

Tomoko visits a video game store and sees Yoshida playing Pachinko. Yoshida notices her staring and invites her over to help her get a cute stuffed cat doll from a crane game. Tomoko is reluctant throughout the whole thing, but becomes more worried as she sees how much Yoshida wants this cat.

As she continues to fail under Yoshida's intense stare, Tomoko grows more afraid that Yoshida will beat her up if she fails to get the toy. 15 minutes and 1K of Yoshida's yen (1,000¥ ≊ $10) later, Tomoko still has not won the prize. While intense, Yoshida calmly adds another 500¥ to the machine and tells Tomoko to keep trying. Tomoko gets close and frustrated as Yoshida becomes more desperate, pressing her face against the glass.

Tomoko decides to take a bathroom break despite Yoshida's protests that they are "this close!" Another girl walks past Tomoko towards the desperate Yoshida. After debating what she should do, Tomoko vows to return to the "Game of Death" only to find two younger girls trying to get her prize. She does not notice a smiling Yoshida receiving a "SECA" bag from the girl who walked past Tomoko. Instead, Tomoko yells at the two girls, who protest there was no one at the game when they arrived. Tomoko screams that if she fails she will be killed by the delinquent. Yoshida hears this and lifts her up by her shirt collar. On her back, in the SECA bag, is the stuffed cat doll.
