- The whole crew is surprised
Magnus:*surprised*Shishio....is on this island?
Marimo:*dead serious face*Yeah....I dont know why but I just feel it.I'm sure he is on this island.
Magnus:*dead serious face*Marimo.....why this island?
Marimo:*dead serious face*This island is.....the Misty Island.The mist blocks the visitors to see the dead bodies that are all around the island.There is a little legend about this island.It's said that whoever comes on this island.....will die suffering enourmous pain.Thats why people started to call this island......*shadowed eyes*....Hell.
