Tokyo Babylon Summary

Tokyo Babylon: v. 2 by CLAMP

"Tokyo Babylon - Vol. 2/Dream": Subaru, an onmyogi (one from a rare class that can commune with spirits and put them to rest), dreams of a day in his past when his childhood friend, Mitsuki, told him she hated him because he was "different." But, the next morning, Mitsuki turns out to be Subaru's very next job - she is a rape victim hiding in the dream world, in an attempt to escape from the horror of her reality. In this dream world, Subaru comes to Mitsuki. She explains to Subaru that her harsh words back then were her attempt to explain that she was in love with him, and that his dream was of her calling out to him. Finally, Subaru convinces his childhood friend to return to the world of the living. "Tokyo Babylon - Annex/Smile": Subaru's twin sister, Hokuto, happens upon a foreign girl being harassed by men. Acting on her intuition, she steps in to save the day. On the run, the girl reveals to Hokuto that the men were from the police, and that she is an illegal "gaijin" who has been ostracized by the Japanese since she moved to Tokyo to work and send money home to her family. Hokuto listens to the girl's problems, and lets her know that there is no such thing as a "gaijin." Everyone is the same race - the human race. Hokuto assures the girl that she has at least one friend in the big city of Tokyo - her.
