Find out what was so important in hell.
Masaki teleported Shinkiro to the underworld.
Shinkiro arrives in the underworld standing on red stone; around him is a sea of fiery blood and lava. Luckily a skeletal figure in a boat stands before him. The figure offers to take him through the underworld for a price. After a bit of chit chat the price they decide upon is Shinkiro’s soul, when he dies he will become a ferry man. The two chat and it is confirmed that Masaki did indeed arrive here. When Shrink asks where he should go the ferry man suggests the East Library. This is where Shinkiro spends the majority of his time in the underworld. He learns to read demonic because all the books there are written in it, and while he’s scavenging the library he notices a large book upon a pedestal. This book is the story of the universe from begging to end. Unfortunately the book is written in ancient demonic, so he learns that while he is there as well. Reading the book through and through takes Shink two years, but he learns that the world of humans works as a plane to balance the demonic and celestial ones; any change in the ordered chaos of our realm would result in a battle of the celestial and demonic realms on earth. He also learns that if enough people were sacrificed the gates to hell could be opened wide enough for the oni to come through, and that people are trying to do this. While there he also visits the tower of an old and incredibly powerful mage. In this tower the hostile affects the underworld has on the living are non-existent. Shinkiro finds a library written in arcane and returns to the east library to learn this as well. He returns and learns the basics of how magic works. Afterwards he finds an invisible passage staircase that leads into a well on our plane. The passage is one way. Three years in hell had ill-effects on Shink, his skin became gaunt, leathery, and stretched tightly over his bones. Three rip-like hole also appeared in the flesh over his abdomen. Talking with Masaki latter he learned that he could visit the celestial realm to restore his body, but he has yet to do so.
