- Forced Telepathy
Kusuo narrates about how his life was like an rpg game of which his stats are all complete and he has the strongest possible equipment making him think it is the absolute pinnacle of a shitty game compared to Riki which he actually thinks is preferable but he thought he'd never want to be him. A sudden noise from a crowd caught their attention. Riki, thinking that it was a new ramen shop, ran towards it while Kusuo had already seen that it was a middle aged man who was ready to jump off a building and commit suicide any minute. Thinking that it may form bad luck on top of a "newly opened ramen shop", Riki dashed towards the rooftop even though it was just a cleaners store. After seeing the two of them, the man asked if they came to dissuade him. Intimidated by Riki, the man thought of jumping but Kusuo uses Telekinesis to make his hands rigid and he was unable to let go of the barrier on the top of the building, making the man think that he can't really kill himself after all. He confesses that his name was Soul Shout and that he wanted to die because he owed 10 billion yen, Riki and Kusuo listen to his story but Riki did not understand things at all and is still being an idiot. Soul Shout talks to Kusuo, telling him that he was an indie musician and giving him his CD. Kusuo was shocked when the man said he still had 10 thousand more CDs in his hands and not one of the CDs were sold. After hearing Soul Shout's songs, Riki was moved to tears and decides to help the man sell his songs. The scene changes to a man who saw the CD on the ground and picked it up, laughing at it when Riki suddenly appeared next to him and threatened him to pay for the CD he just took. Kusuo then scold Riki that it was extortion and the man said that they should just give up, but Riki still motivated him saying that he should hold a live singing at the park. However, it still failed as no one wanted to buy his CDs. Just when he was about to go, a big crowd of people appeared and asked if he was the one singing, saying that they couldn't get the song out of their heads and asked if they could buy the CD he had. Soul Shout started crying, Kusuo then explained how he had used forced Telepathy on the people in the vicinity to make them repeatedly hear the song. With two CD's left in the end, Soul Shout gave Riki and Kusuo each a CD.
