Episode 4: Twisted Karma and His Last Bow is the fourth episode of Dai Gyakuten Saiban 2: Naruhodō Ryūnosuke no Kakugo.


Pipe in hand, Holmes looked down at the thick, rolling fog outside our window. "I wonder exactly how many mysteries are out there, hidden within this bed of fog," he said. Indeed, a most bizarre incident born of a curious advertisement ... a hell hound's mad gallop through the shadows of a serial murder, an executed man's graveyard resurrection in the dead of night ... and a commonplace killing in a small, forgotten room at the edge of town. There is, actually, always another side to every case that nobody knows of. "And it is that other side which compelled me to the scene of the crime, Watson. So, quickly now. Take your hat and let's be on our way, partner."

Investigation, Day 1Edit

10: 24 AM

It's been eight days since the trial of Benjamin Dobinbough. Ryūnosuke Naruhodō and Susato Mikotoba are now in the lobby of London's Bandol Hotel. Susato is still sad about Asōgi's father. She wonders if her father knew about the Professor's true identity, Ryunosuke thinks he probably did. Yūjin Mikotoba and Seishirou Jigoku are in the lobby as well, though Naruhodō has no idea who Jigoku is, until he produces his gavel and says "I find the defendant, Ryūnosuke Naruhodō... guilty!" Jigoku says it's his first time in London in ten years.

Naruhodō remembers that three people took part in the Japan-England exchange program sixteen years ago: Yūjin, Asōgi's father, and one other, that other person was Jigoku. Naruhodō asks what brings them to London. Apparently it took fifty days by ship for them to get here. Yūjin says that sixteen years ago, Jigoku was the one they wanted for the exchange program, he was just a bonus. Naruhodō brings up how they now know Asōgi's father was the serial killer, The Professor. His full name was Genshin Asōgi and he was studying at Scotland Yard to be a detective. Naruhodō asks if Kazuma ever knew what happened to his father at the time. Jigoku says he couldn't have because Genshin's official cause of death was "illness". However, Kazuma probably suspected something, as he was pretty adamant about wanting to study in Great Britain. Perhaps the real reason was to investigate his father's death.

Naruhodō then tells them that Kazuma Asōgi is alive, and was working as Barok van Zieks' "disciple". Neither of them knew this, so Naruhodō suspects Hart Vortex didn't tell them about it in his telegram. As far as they both knew, Asōgi "disappeared" on the ship a year ago. Yūjin wonders why didn't Vortex tell them, he says that in order to study forensic science/autopsy, he stayed at a big hospital located between common graveyards which were behind a prison. This is because those corpses used in autopsy research were often unclaimed (and were hence presumably supplied by the prison), so at that time Yūjin received quite a lot of assistance from Mr Barricade, the prison warden. Basically, they'd been in England six years and then Genshin was arrested for the serial murders. Jigoku stood as a witness in Genshin's secret trial, hoping to help him somehow. According to Yūjin, he overdid it to the point where it was almost like Jigoku himself was the defendant. After the trial, both of them had to return home to Japan, leaving Genshin behind. Yūjin reminisces about Susato with Naruhodō, but then says he has "one request" of him. But Susato interrupts by bringing the leader of the carriages to do a group photo of all four of them.
