A Reimu scream in pain as the body breaks.
This mountain has a big yukkuri clan so there's a routine extermination done. Anon always joined the fun as his public duty and stress relieve. His favourite tool is a bat.
Strange thing that even after they destroyed the whole clan, they will soon grow back.
For Anon, he enjoyed beating the last yukkuri like this Reimu. Somehow, they got snapped real good compared to others. It gives him a great closure of the extermination.
Today, when seeing the corpse of that last Reimu, he thought of his recently captured abyuse Marisa back at home. He hasn't abyuse that Marisa much yet, so to prepare it, a nutritious paste might be a good idea.
He put Reimu's paste to his used lunch box and brought it home.
Back at home, Marisa is screaming in terror when seeing the paste. Anon lied to Marisa that it's just normal paste, but Marisa doesn't believe it. She seems to recognize the paste as from another yukkuri. Is it that death stench ? But Anon has heard cases where yukkuri could mistaken it as paste if they never know it's from another yukkuri.
Well, the view of Marisa cornering herself as far away from the paste is interesting, so he left them like that.
Next morning, strange thing grow from the paste. It looks like plants, but the stalk is coloured like paste and the leaves are red with pattern like Reimu's ribbon. On the stalks are strange fruit.
Marisa is still in distress, asking to be taken out of the box. Marisa must know about those plants to be this afraid.
As Anon is closing the lid again, suddenly the fruit burst and fly everywhere with great strength. Anon feels lucky because he had the lid, else it might have injured his eyes.
Marisa is not so lucky. She became victim of the bouncing seeds and took it easy forever with holes through her whole body.
Now Anon is really interested. What is this strange plant ?
He buried them and gave them water.
Next morning, baby yukkuri are endlessly born from the many stalks. As soon as they fall down, they start happily munch munching on their stalk.
They then declared their easy place and demand sweets sweets.
Anon understand now. This is something yet unknown yet. Seems that the death of many yukkuri would cause a change in yukkuri who realized it's the "last survivor of the clan". That explains the difference when Anon hits the last yukkuri with his bat.
The paste of that last yukkuri would then grow these babies to refill the population. So this is the explanation of why they never runs out of yukkuri population in the mountain.
For him, he had a wonderful new toy. He just hurt the baby yukkuri and then return it to the aquarium so they starts cannibalizing on it. Then he crush the last Reimu, whose from paste will again grow many new yukkuri.
