With Halloween just past, this month's Featured Article concerns the artificial parasitic lifeform known as Sample Shoggoth.
Named after a type of protoplasmic monster from the Cthulhu Mythos, Sample Shoggoth is an amorphous black mass with colored bubbles that are not quite eyes or suckers, capable of swiftly shifting, extending and hardening into various shapes.

Attempting to extract it risks it lashing out and tearing its host apart, or leaving them a skin-and-bones shell close to death.

And of course, Touma Kamijou is participating. His terrible luck is still in full effect--he's gnawed on by a famished Index, castigated by a representative of the festival management committee, and zapped mid-competition by none other than Mikoto Misaka.
