BiographyEdit

Ju-tsu5

Toshio's ghost growls over Tsuyoshi.

At some point, Tsuyoshi and his family moved to the Saeki house. He had a girlfriend named Mizuho Tamura.

Tsuyoshi invited his Mizuho to his house, where she met his family. Their relationship thrilled Kanna, and she constantly teased them. Yuki asked him for a picture of Mizuho, but Tsuyoshi refused to show her one.

As Tsuyoshi left for school, he found a ringing cellphone in the garbage. Intending to return it to its owner, Tsuyoshi picked and heard nothing but a mewing. Tsuyoshi insisted to have an answer and, concluding it was a prank, asked if the caller was watching him. As someone personally answered his question, and Tsuyoshi found a ghostly boy sat by his side. Spilling a viscous black stain from his mouth, the ghost growled and Tsuyoshi was taken by the curse.

AftermathEdit

Mizuho looked for him at school but only found the cellphone and Tsuyoshi's bycicle. Alone in the building, she was haunted by Toshio's ghost and caught by the curse as well.
