Apologies for my bumbling about with the puzzle. Long night and distracted by a recording hiccup that apparently didn't carry over into the actual video.
And now for the files!

Novelist Takamine's Notes 6 - Takamine's last hope
"I'm about to go to the shrine deep within Himuro Mansion, where they say a piece of the True Holy Mirror is kept. The curse has already left its mark on my four limbs. There's no escaping it. About the only thing left now that I can do is try to reseal the Hell Gate. It's my last hope.
I've already found four of the Buddha statues I need to get a piece of the mirror. And I've managed to find an old document that tells of the location of the fifth statue.
'Make observance to the Buddha,' At the base of the large gate, 'So that the souls of the piteous maidens,' Can reach up to the heavens.'
If all goes well, no one will ever have to read these notes, and I can use them toward the content of my next book. In closing, I would like to thank my assistant and my partner, Tomoe Hirasaka.
If it weren't for the words she left with me, I wouldn't have been able to complete this, my final work. If I don't return, please give her a decent burial.
Signed, Junsei Takamine,
