A strange little story with a woman trying to find something to buy, alien store clerks trying to sell her things she doesn’t want, and a male clerk hanging to the ceiling saying that he can play anything as long as he has a guitar. The clerk falls onto some mirrors and bleeds to death. The woman doesn’t get what she wants and the alien clerks all disappear into hell. The last panel shows photos of the Beatles in frames with broken glass.

Start of the “Seikai Youbi” (聖灰曜日) series. Usually, “曜日” (youbi) means “day”, like Getsu Youbi is Monday, and Ka Youbi is Tuesday. There is no Seikai Day in the Japanese calendar. This chapter is “選ばれたヒツジは” (Elected Sheep). It’s a random collection of pictures set to random text.

A pair of aliens discover a long-nosed dream sucker alien. The dream sucker is ill, and the other two plumb its memories to find out why. Turns out that it had gone to Earth, and gorged itself on the dreams of various people, including Akira Ogawa, Shigeru Mizuki and Kuniko Tsurita. They give it an energy drink as medicine, and end up killing it. While, on Earth, the appearance of an alien results in books being written, people going on talk shows, and the Japanese army trying to use American rockets to enter the space race. The rockets drop the Army in the middle of Vietnam while the war is still going on. The two aliens wish they could have discovered the location of such a stupid planet, but they can’t so they go traveling off somewhere else.
