Every year on June 16th since Antonio was a baby, Maria peels off his skin bit by bit while leaving his blood, bones, and flesh intact.

Antonio's hair that was shed from prior months would be placed on top of the head of her creation to complete the full body work of art, which she called "This Year's Antonio".

She adapts her technique over time, while Antonio's body adapts to survive the pain. Rather than taking photographs of her child like a normal person, Maria obsessed over the texture of Antonio's skin, and wanted to preserve it each year.

He also offers prayers to the citizens of Morioh because the town had mysteriously detached from the country and become its own island.

Bariya addresses that they know Yoshikage Kira isn't the murderer and they will not go after him at this time. The real killer was framing Kira by using his name. Bariya asks for Kira's assistance in providing any information to solve this case so that Kira can demonstrate that he is cooperative.
