Finally the story is advancing somewhere!!

As we’ve all suspected now, Mochi is some kind of Jungian psychopomp, although one should always be wary of her motives (snacks, cuddles).

Mochi sfx:
くんくん kun kun = snif snif
ブルブル, ぶるぶる buru buru = wag wag (I mixed up the kana and couldn’t be bothered to fix it! Don’t do this, kids)
ペロペロ pero pero = lick lick
ファー fua- = yawn
