・Close Encounters of the Bird Kind?
Kasuga encounters a girl who swears up and down that her beloved pet chicken has been taken away by a UFO. Everyone she’s told, including the police, has brushed it off as her eyes playing tricks on her, but Kasuga sees her desperation and agrees to assist her in a UFO search. As he explores a certain park rumored to be a hotspot for UFO sightings, he witnesses a cow floating up toward a mysterious light…
・Home to Roost
Kasuga takes a nap on a Hawaiian beach. But when he wakes, his head feels heavy. He hurries over to a shop window to examine himself, only to find that a baby bird has taken up residence atop his head.
