Episode 1: I’m Jack! This is a terrifying amount of spiritual force. To think a monster like this existed… I’ll be in the front! Please support me from behind, Miyako-san! Once this is over, it’s Halloween party time! Don’t get in Miyako’s way~! Oh? Who are you two! I-It talked! Just what are you! My name is Jack-o-Lantern! I’m here to destroy Halloween! Destroy Halloween? …We won’t let you. We’ll defeat you here. What’s with you?
Being a party pooper when we’ve just met. I won’t forgive those who get in my way! Incoming! Shinobu! Yah-! You’re too slow! Miyako-san, I’ll handle his attacks! Now! That’s our Shinobu~!
Miyako’s going to do her best, too~! Wawawa! You all aren’t half bad-! Attagirl!
Shinobu! That boy’s got nothing on us! Shinobu and Miyako are the strongest~!
Take this~! *grunt*
I-I knew I couldn’t unleash my power in this world. For now I’ll… Bye-bee~! Ah~! Don’t run away~! Miyako-san! Let’s hurry and chase him! Meanwhile… [protagonist] was walking home from work through a quiet residential area. Move, move, move-! …Wait, are you a human-! You! I’ll pull pranks on you if you don’t give me treats!>”I don’t have treats.”
>”Happy Halloween.” Yup! Happy Halloween! …Wait, what? You don’t have treats! Don’t bother greeting me if you don’t have any! Jack~! Prepare yourself~! Uwah-! They followed me here! Heheh, don’t think you can beat me in tag! Run away~! He sure seems to be having fun… Ah, [protagonist]-san, are you okay?>”Did something happen, Shinobu-chan?”
>”What are you up to, Miyako?” [Protagonist], good timing~! Trick-or-pudding, hand over the pudding~ Miyako-san, now’s not the time for… *gasp* You’re right,
we won’t be able to have our party if we don’t hurry! I’ll let you give me the pudding later! You look like you have nothing to do, [protagonist]. Help Miyako and Shinobu out~ And that’s what happened… Please, could you help us stop Jack? You’ve no right to refuse! Let’s protect Halloween together~!>Help the two of them out. Thank you! In that case, let’s chase after him! W-We lost sight of him~! He’s a nimble one~ He said he would destroy Halloween, but I wonder what he meant by that… Let’s find him and ask him about that, too! This is just a guess,
but he must be blended into this crowd… I can’t tell because
there are so many people in costumes~ Waaaah! Give those back-! A child crying? I wonder what that’s… My treats-! What are you doing-! Shut up-! These are mine now! If you won’t play with me, at least hand over the treats! That jerk, he’s an adult
and he’s stealing treats from kids! This is unforgivable-! Give everyone’s treats back!
You shouldn’t bully kids! And hand over some pudding to Miyako
while you’re at it-! Geh! You already caught up to me? Yah-! Awawa! That’s dangerous! What are you doing, attacking us all of a sudden! You pests are so persistent-! You… you’re Jack, aren’t you? To think you’ve possessed a villager… Please set him free right now. I need this body for my revenge! I won’t give it up so easily! *grunt!* T-This is a problem… If things are like this… In that case, Miyako will attack and drive you out of him! No, Miyako-san! If we attack him like this,
it will hurt the possessed person! Auu… T-That’s true… I won’t let anyone get in my way… Haaaah! *grunt!* The two of you, please step back! I’ll do something about this! That’s no good! Miyako will help, too-! You can’t win if you can’t attack this bodyー *grunt* Aaah! T-The paaaain! I knew this body wouldn’t cut it-! H-he’s acting kinda weird! The body probably isn’t fit for him… It should be impossible for him to unleash all his power
inside a body with little spiritual force. Ah, hold on! I have an idea. There-! Magic!? Miyako-san, watch out! Kyaah-! Shinobu! Shinobu-! You! How dare you do this to my Shinobu!! Miyako…san… Shinobu, get a hold of yourself! I’ll take you to a hospital right away! I’m sorry, Miyako-san… When I said we would have a Halloween party together… [Protagonist]-san, please take good care of Miyako-san. Shinobu! Shinobu, wake up-! …u-! I won’t forgive you!
How dare you do this to Shinobu-! Mm? H-huh? What am I doing in a place like this… Eh… C-Could it be you’re back to normal? Then Jack… He escaped on us again~! This is so frustrating~! Mm…
