Part 47

I had to re-record video 83 because I accidentally recorded my first run in low quality. This time I used a different strategy.

Japan's Bermuda Triangle?

The latest in a long string of bizarre incidents in Yamijima's waters, the ocean-going tuna boat S.S. Hanu disappeared off the coast of the island at around 4:40pm August 6th.
In 1976 (Showa 51) the entire population of Yamijima vanished after the undersea electric cable was mysteriously severed. In 1986 (Showa 61) the passenger vessel Bright Wing disappeared near the island. These and other numerous bizarre incidences, unheard of in any other location, have led many people to call Yamijima and its surrounding seas "Japan's Bermuda Triangle".

(NOTE: The boat disappeared in August 2003, the same time as the events of the first game. In addition, the name of the boat, "Hanu", uses the same kanji as the village from the original Siren, "Hanuda". This boat can also be seen behind Mamoru in the photo on his camera in Archive 088.)


A dog whistle belonging to Mikami Shu. Dog whistles emit a high-pitched sound that only canines can hear and which can be used to give them commands. To the human ear it sounds like no more than a gentle breeze over the earlobes.


Abe Soji's prized vintage oil lighter. A character has been etched on the side. The metal appears to have been scorched and the imprint of a dog's teeth is visible.
