In the materials Tomoe gathered for me, there's a paragraph about five pieces of mirror passed down through the Himuro family for generations. These pieces were said to seal off the Hell Gate and protect the region from a great disaster. They might have something to do with the current hellish situation.
Five Holy Mirrors in shrines around the area all broke in a small earthquake the other day. When I heard about it, it gave me the idea for this next work of mine. I think I bought a news article about it with me when I came here. It says there were only five Holy Mirrors in existence.
But according to some legends, there is another -- the True Holy Mirror. The folklorist also mentions this in his research documents, the ones I found here in the mansions. (I think I dropped the research documents somewhere when I was trying to escape that cursed woman.)
Here are my theories. I think that the five mirrors that were destroyed in the earthquake the other day had the role of "watching over" the True Holy Mirror. I don't think it was the earthquake that broke the five Holy Mirrors in the shrines.
I think it was a signal that the seal on the Hell gate that the Himuro True Holy Mirror provides had broken for some reason. The five mirrors were trying to warn us.
