Usagi, followed by the lizard pack, and a possible other, encounters a komuso (Monk of emptiness) who invites him to stay the evening. The komuso tells Usagi of the 3 kinds of music: The music of mortals, which he plays with his Shakuhachi, the Music of Nature, which is the soul of the land, and the music of Heaven, which he strains to hear.
The next morning, the komuso returns, and attacks Usagi. In reality, it is the surviving member of 'Shi' (Issue #5). Usagi defeats the assassin, and finds the komuso mortally wounded. Just before he passes away, there are the faint sounds of music. The lizards remain at the grave, while Usagi leaves, taking his Shakuhachi to the temple.
