Plot

The police knocks on Dr. Tenma's door and wake him up to inform him that doctors Udo Heinemann, Oppenheimer and Boyer were dead.

The press stands outside of Eisler Memorial Hospital to try to get the news on the killings when Tenma arrives. When he makes it in it is all a chaos: people are waiting to be operated on, police wants an initial report on the case and the twins have escaped.

At Udo Heinemann's funeral Tenma is standing with Dr. Becker while Eva is crying inconsolably. Dr. Becker and Tenma are walking away from the funeral when they are stopped by Inspectors Egon Weißbach and Heinrich Lunge.

After the deaths of Dr. Heinemann, Dr. Oppenheimer and Dr. Boyer, Tenma is appointed Chief Surgeon of Eisler Memorial Hospital. Eva meets with Tenma a cafe, saying that he want to make him up, but Kenzo leaves.

Nine years later, in 1995, the police are investigating a series of middle-aged couples in Western Germany. One of the suspects involved in the murders, Adolf Junkers, is seeing in Düsseldorf running from a "monster". Junkers is hit by a car.

Junkers is brought to Eisler Memorial Hospital.

Lunge informs Tenma about him still working to solve the Eisler Memorial Hospital murders.
