Spoiler Warning: Plot and/or ending details follow
Kagerou Days I
- In the midst of the world that has turned black and white, in tears, Hibiya stands by Hiyori's blood covered body that is sprawled on the ground, refusing to admit the death of his friend. Within the loud voices of the cicadas, the swaying heat haze stands close, seemingly laughing at him. All he can do is to tell her, even though it is too late, that he had loved her.
Kagerou Days II
- Hiyori experiences the moments in her dreams over and over again, walking in the the same park, and talking about the same things with Hibiya, but every time, he dies in the end, then the dream ends up repeating itself. At 12:30pm, she offers for them both to return home, grabbing his hand to which he blushes at, which she finds quite uncomfortable yet inevitable. Thinking about how she hates the noisy cicadas, the swaying heat haze, and summer itself, she looks up, as an iron pole comes down towards her.
Kagerou Days III
- The chapter starts with Shintaro summarizing the events that had happened in the morning, which are how he met the Mekakushi Dan. The timeline then switches to present-day, while the Mekakushi Dan is walking home from a day at the amusement park. As they cross a road, they spot a crowd gathering in the front of a park. Curious, the gang creeps closer to see what is happening. In the middle lays a young boy on the ground and another, older one, sits next to him. Knowing they cannot do anything, the gang passes without too much notice. However, Shintaro notices how Ene, with a shocked face, recognizes the sitting boy and mumbles, a name; Konoha. Shintaro looks down and asks what she said. When he looks up again, he sees an ambulance picking up the young boy and the the other following. As the ambulance leaves, Ene tells Momo to hurry and follow the car. Some confusion goes between Momo and Shintaro, before the novel ends.
