Reigen is of course looking for the gullible, that believe in the supernatural. He sets up a stand to offer exorcism help. Mob and Reigen are interrupted by Shinra Banshomaru, the greatest psychic of this century. He claims that they don’t have any jurisdiction to put up their stand. As challenges their so called authority, but a potential client arrives. She claims that spirits are attracted to her. Mob confirms that a spirit of a middle aged man is following her.

Shinra is uncertain who would take such a job, and of course Reigen claims the job. Shinra decides to help, Reigen asks Dimple to tail him. He seems to be concerned for Shira’s safety. He asks some children about what they’ve seen. He becomes weird and the girls think he’s a pervert. A guy in a read raincoat runs pass him and he tackles him. This reveals that the man named Akarain isn’t wearing any clothing. We get a seen that’s similar to the fighting game genre, with Akarain vs Shinra. Akarain flees. The human faced dog turn out to be a dog with a face written by marker.
Hey aren’t you thirsty
Shira catches up to Akarain. This turns out to be his plan all along. He attacks Shinra with a taser. At this point it seems like Shinra doesn’t have any psychic powers. After knocking Shinra out, a skinny woman dragging several dolls behind her, stating hey, aren’t you thirst over and over. Akarain attacks her with his taser. She reflects the electricity on him, knocking him out. Shinra uses Spirit Hold. It doesn’t have an effect. The woman sinks under the water and rises under Shinra throwing him into the lake. She tries to drag him under water, but Dimple possess him awakening his latent powers.
Dimple verses the Dragger
The fight between Dimple (in Shinra’s body) and the dragger is a dynamic battle. The animation is spectacular ask they fight through the trees. Dragger attacks with a series of clawed weapons. Cornered, Dimple considers abandoning Shira when his achilles tendon snaps. However, Mob’s faith in him prevent him from doing so. Just before the Dragger kills Shira, Mob saves them. She flees. Dimple claims that the Dragger was given life from “the imagination of masses.”
Fear is used to power her. The lake begins to expand, trapping Reigen and Shinra. However, because Mob doesn’t have a childhood fear of the Dragger he’s able to defeat her. Mob’s ignorance saved him. Reigen, Mob and Dimple head to find the “Dashing Granny,” but it turns out she just an old lady that runs. Mob is embarrassed that she beat him, becoming Mob’s “first traumatic experience with urban legends.”
