Why Is This Happening? Why Me... is the second episode of the Ajin anime adaptation.
Kaito takes Kei Nagai into the hills on his motorcycle. While stopping for fuel, Kei is recognised by two criminals in a van who have just abducted a schoolgirl. The criminals follow them and when the boys stop by the side of the road, the criminals attack. The leader pins down Kei and chokes him to death to see if he revives. As Kei loses consciousness a mummified figure or "Black Ghost." materialises nearby. Kei comes back to life and screams again, immobilizing everyone. Kaito recovers first and they flee again on the motorcycle, pursued shortly thereafter by the criminals, who are in turn followed by the Black Ghost. Meanwhile Yu Tosaki orders tranqilizer guns for the police as the best way to stop Ajin. Kaito and Kei manage to cross a railway line, but as the criminals cross the tracks behind them, the Black Ghost immobilizes the driver, and their van is destroyed by an oncoming train. The Black Ghost is heard repeating Kei’s words.
