It was unfortunately ended. It was serialized August 8 ~ October 14, 2008 in the 'Yahoo! Cartoon World' which is Yahoo! Korea's webtoon service. But When Yahoo! Korea ended on December 31, 2012, the author re-serialized this in Denma after the end of A Catnap A.E.
It has been translated into Japanese. Japanese version (Ip bypass required) Japanese version ((S.E.) ラミレコード, Ramirekōdo) is the version of Rami Record that translated in Japan. It's serialized by Line Webtoon. It's started on June 8, and it's closed on 29, 2015.
In the English version, the translator skips this work and translates 2. A.E., so the readers protest that why skips this work. This is because there is a religious problem (Christianity) in (1) (Korean, In Denma, it's (1) too) and a political problem (North Korean defectors) in throughout the plot. It may be a copyright issue with Yahoo ! Cartoon World, but it may not be because the Japanese version has been translated.
If this work isn't translated after January 5, 2019, when the Chapter 2 2. A.E. ends, it'll written the translation of it here.
Joshua's soul, who was murdered by cognation and scattered in the Intersecting Space of parallel universes... Starting from here, the religion of love and retribution 'Church of Madonna' ...You have waited a long time. 'Huh~!' Shall we start now?
Madonna worked as a butcher in the imperial kitchen. The new husband John, whom Madonna met there, became a wonderful father to her son, Joshua. Joshua, a saint who conveyed the message of faith, hope, and love. As the people who have been saved from the suffering of life through Joshua's sermon have increased, he's eventually sentenced to crucifixion by scribes of cognation who're threatened by his presence. And on the day of execution, saint Joshua in front of God experience the absolute solitude of the universe... Frustrated by Joshua's execution news, Madonna and her husband and the Joshua's 12 apostles jump into the deadly perils to save their son. Madonna's choice to save a dying son after her husband's death was "Virgo Intactium", an imperial super-secret space called the realm of God. With the collapse of the singularity that was the intersection of parallel universes, the Joshua's soul is scattered in each parallel universe. Madonna says that the soul of God, Joshua is survived, and that when he comes back here again, those who killed him will be dead. After a miraculous escape with his 12 apostles, people began to flock to Madonna. And a new sermon is passed on to the suffering people... This is the origin of the religion of love and retribution, Church of Madonna.
Madonna: Look at this! You greedy dogs who murdered a son of cognation sent by God to enrich their portfolio with! The son of God, Joshua's soul is survived without dying! When he comes back here again, those who killed him will be dead!
After a miraculous escape with Joshua's 12 apostles, people began to flock to Madonna.
And a new sermon is passed on to the suffering people...
Girl: Ugh, it's frustrating! I don't know why Holy visit is such a thing. Why should we fill in the quota for the ampoule? Nowadays who's going to find Joshua's reincarnated body and become Deva? 99% will become Deva according to their grades. This makes people tired.
Girl's friend: I don't know how it works.
Girl: The church should rather let us give more tutoring at that time, but they give such a trouble to preliminary nobles like us!
Girl's friend: Since the establishment of the House of Dancing Flowers, the person who found Joshua's reincarnated body and become Devas are the only two who has ever been. If someone goes to a Holy visit and gets hurt in an accident or die, the church only prayer.
Girl: Why did the church gives the money-less and the back-groundless children's work to us? Anyway, what about the party tomorrow?
Girl's friend: What are you doing? There you have to give Miser do a Holy visit!
Rami: *Smile* I'm agency Holy visit Miser. Are you having a party tomorrow? You may know the price... Now, pay half of the advance cash now.
Girl's friend: Oh! I think she heard our conversation.
Finally, the Intersecting Space opens. Every time we go to the Holy visit, everybody have a secret expectation, a romance with a handsome priest! I'm praying for my partner who's Guardian priest of I'll visit the parish, that he'll be pretty boy.
Oh, it started. When I move from Intersecting Space to parallel world, there's a subtle feel like the body and mind are spreading all over the place... (usually in this case, a tearful phenomenon occurs) Oh, what? Anyway, this is subtly addictive.
TV Announcer: The 25th North-South Culture and Arts Festival is held at the Ilsung Cultural Center Auditorium on the north side. We're continuing performance of South. Ms. Winnie, our Prima Ballerina's a pas seul... it's beautiful.
＊Embalming: This is a technique that injects preservatives instead of blood. It's an illegal activity here in the 1-307A District, and if you violate it, you'll be condemn to maximum penalty.
Denzo: Two months ago, I had no chance to find materials. I accidentally found a month-old grave. The name of the gravestone owner is Flower / Flora. I destroyed that grave because I tried to make it a bone tool, but I didn't expect it... I was very surprised. How does a dead body that is over a month seem to have fallen asleep? Above all, I was struck by her beauty. I've never seen such a pretty woman in front of my eyes. And then I got a very ardent feeling about her. I stroke her in every night...
Denzo: Flower / Flora? That's probably your name? Until I met you, I never once blamed death. What's your story? Why are you not able to leave your body from in this world?
Denzo: Someone said that human beings are small souls who drag their dead bodies around. Her body doesn't rot because the soul is trapped. I'm sure she's due to some intense desire that hasn't been done here yet. I'm sad if she lose her beauty, but I can't leave her like this. Because dead body is hell to soul... I want to help her. I hope her soul will be free without pain any more. As you can see, I'm not free because I'm very much out of law. This isn't hard for you guys in Church of Madonna here, is not it? I want to know why she still can't leave. And help her soul to leave the dead body.
Flower / Flora, her real name is Zea. She was a National Ballet Prima Ballerina. When she was 10 years old, she was escaping with her party from North, a Communist camp, alone and without family. She's so-called defector.
We came to South for freedom.
Her cause of death is overdose, suicide ... It's a shock.
This is the place where my Holy visit, is divided into the South and the North for the last 40 years due to a severe ideological confrontation.
Here, the relationship of Flower / Flora is only the adoptive parents of the South who're adopt to her.
Priest: Oh, I remember! Don't say anything. It was terrible on her funeral day.
We aren't able to communicate directly with her adoptive parents, so we listen to the priest who helped with the funeral and go to search for the people who had used violence from the funeral.
Pay Your Debt
Boss of lenders: This is something that she borrowed money from the beginning with the intention of taking away our money. Even though you may forgive the foe who killed your parents, you never forget the person who cheat your money. It's really hard to see how we will make the money, that bitch borrowed. The loan collateral was her sleek body, but she gone to hell by overdose, so what should we do? It would be better to take a candy from a child. But why our money? So that day we went there because to take her organs, and tussled over to the monks.
The next day, we arrive at the North Parish via the Palace. The Deva identifies the dead body and gives us the following cautions.
Deva in the North: The North Parish here's under strict control and oversight by the party so that it can't criticize the regime. When you leave here, you're immediately exposed to the Central Intelligence Agency's wiretapping device. Flower / Flora's mother comes here today because she listed on our Parish medical service list, and she has no idea that her daughter's dead body is here. I couldn't make any conversation for her because of the surveillance. If you know that you and dead body are in the doctor's office, it'll be a dangerous situation for everyone. So once you get out of this door, you must remain silent until you return to this room. Sister Rami, you much attention you need to be doing.
I have to keep silent because of the wiretapping device in Parish. I can't make a word to Flower / Flora's mother... I didn't expect it. If Flower / Flora's mother confronts the dead body in the doctor's office, and the unexpected situation happens because of the surveillance... Ah, I don't know, I don't know! If work is twisted, it's all Mother Madonna's fault!
Flower / Flora's dead body / Doctor / Flower / Flora's mother / Lookout member
In front of Flower / Flora's dead body waiting for her mother, suddenly my deceased mom comes to mind. Mom... I wonder how if she could her feeling of that time.
Denzo: Sister Rami! I really appreciate you. I don't know what to say to you. Thanks to that, I can concentrate on my creative work without being afraid anymore. Thank you very much. This is still incomplete, but I want to show you my first work. It'll be the way of a major artist... This work's title is 'Daughter, another name for a beautiful woman'.
It's later revealed in Denma that the background of this space is the universe eight. And the temporal background of this is also revealed to be 21 years ago in Denma. And a year later, A Catnap starts.
Joshua, a pioneer who's caught and tortured by the king on charges of disturbing the world and spreading dangerous teachings to the people. In order to protect Madonna's son's life shortly before Joshua's dead, she destroys the singularity of the Intersecting Space, the secret place of the kingdom. With the destruction of singularity, Joshua's soul is scattered into each of the intersecting spaces...
