Another Monster
go back

These two paragraphs are written on the front and back cover of the book, in English. Don't worry, my English is not as bad.

"Johan incident" once spooked Germany.
But the truth of the incident is still left undisclosed.
This document is a vivid report of the "Johan incident" put together
by an Austrian journalist,
who found similarities between
the "Johan incident" and a murder case
that happened in the suburbs of Salzburg
for which the writer was in the field.
Are you ready to accept the striking reality
that emerged out of the report!?

What is the reason and the process behind the destruction of
"511 Kinderheim" and how did it happen?
What is the secret and the purpose behind the experiment that took place
at the "Red Rose Mansion"?
Who were Franz Bonaparta and the mother of the twins?
And the story of the animated cartoon "The Magnificient Steiner" will now first to be unveiled!
What are the sinister horror novel "Dorn im Dunklen" and the picture book
"Das Schlafende Monstrum"?... A full reveal of the memo in Grimmer's note...
The mystery lurked in the picture book that was newly found...
...and is there another monster!?

For the sake of comprehension, it is recommended that you do not read the short story "The Awakening Monster" until after you have finished the book.
