Bottomless City

Stop Time: 16 hours, 66 minutes, 66 seconds

The elevators on this planet are special in that when you get on them, you never know where you will end up going. Because of this, they are rarely used. Hotel staff warn Tetsuro not to use them. As Kizaluna describes, when one goes into the four-dimensional space, one's subconscious emerges.


The following characters appear and are exclusive to this episode/stop:


Voiced by: Makio Inoue A resident of the Bottomless City, Kizaluna's plan is to bring Tetsuro and Maetel down on the 4-D elevator forever so Maetel can eventually marry him. He is a mechanical being who has done this before, as he shows Tetsuro the graves of various women he's killed after he's gotten what he's wanted. He pulls a gun on Tetsuro, but Maetel hits the gun out of his hands with her whip and shoots him dead.
