      信じるのって 現にきみ存在してるじゃない

      Whoa, you scared me. So you’re the Devil, huh?
      Wha…… “So you’re the Devil”? You believe the Devil exists?
      What do you mean? You exist right there, don’t you?
      Yeah, but, you really believe that? In this 20th century’s Japan? In this scientific civilization……
      Is it that outlandish?
      No no no, that’s not what I meant. It’s just that I’m taken aback by the fact that you really buy that I’m the Devil.
