• Shuichi Yamamoto had awakened to find himself at a location which he did not recognize. While scouting the vicinity, he closed his eyes to recollect his memories.

    "Am I in Shibuya? Tokyo?" Shuichi questioned, pondering on the situation.

    Just then, a surge of remembrance entered him like an automobile crashing into a building.

    "I'm in the parallel universe," he stated, ambling towards a mirror.

    Upon reaching his destination, he found what he desired. A figure of himself appeared before him, its gaze menacing, yet benevolent.

    "... I am a Shadow, a manifestation of the true self," it responded.

    Shuichi smiled.
