Kanjirou Kasahara (笠原勘次郎, Kasahara Kanjirō) was one of the Abashiri Convicts.
Appearance[edit | edit source]
Kasahara had a long face with a pointed nose and black hair which formed a widow's peak with sideburns. He wore a dark vest over a robe tied with an obi as well as white trousers, and leg warmers that reached up to his calves. He also had his hands wrapped up, leaving his fingers exposed, to keep them warm. His Abashiri tattoo covered his entire upper body and parts of his arms
Personality[edit | edit source]
Kasahara was a very cautious man as he could not trust anyone, especially since his fellow prisoners had killed each other for their own desires. He appeared to not like direct confrontation as he would sneak around and kill someone from behind. He didn't 't seem to hold himself in high consideration either, as he just called himself a "small time punk" compared to his fellow prisoners.
Background[edit | edit source]
For unknown reasons, Kasahara was sent to Abashiri Prison. He became acquainted with Noppera-Bou and had a tattoo placed on his body. Sometime later, when the guards were escorting them as a guise to find the Ainu gold, the Abashiri convicts killed them and turned on each other so that they could claim the gold for themselves. In the midst of this bloodbath, Kasahara ran away, fearing for his life.
Plot[edit | edit source]
In the town of Otaru, when Saichi Sugimoto and Asirpa questioned a brothel owner about a tattoo, Kasahara approached the man, asking him what they had talked to him about. Finding out that they were looking for tattoos, he tailed them as they walked out of the village and into the woods. He wondered just how far they were planning to walk into the forest as he pulled out pistol, preparing to kill them. As he crouched under a fallen tree and came out on the other side, his head got caught in a trap set by Asirpa, which pulled him off the ground, and his clothes got caught in a tree stub, revealing his tattoo.
Kasahara, having been caught by the duo was bounded up and interrogated by Sugimoto asking where the other prisoners are. He reveals that he does not know, as the other prisoners had started killing each other, so he ran away, unable to trust anyone. He became mortified when Sugimoto revealed that the only way to get the tattoo was to skin them all, then told Sugimoto that he'd be better off hunting rabbits. But Sugimoto wouldn't have it, and so Kasahara became tied up in a position where the entirety of his tattoo could be soon. When Asirpa asked him what the man that tattooed him was like, he revealed his name, Noppera-Bou and that he didn't have a face. Before he could elaborate, he was shot in the head by an unknown sniper.
