Yakumo:   Konron...

Yakumo:   ...

Yakumo:   is a dangerous place.  Naparvha and the others have
	  certainly shrouded it in darkness.

--------------------- p.166

Yakumo:   Although there's some restrictions on the destination,
	  it's possible to go to any place you want via the Holy Land. 
	  It's just like the magic door in Doraemon.

[Doraemon: One of the most popular and longest-running kids' manga.
Doraemon is a cat-like robot from the future. His magic door is the 
most commonly used tool in the stories. -PY]

Yakumo:   (It's just as well Konron appeared above reclaimed land this time.
	  If it had been above some military base or nuclear power station,
	  I alone would have been unable to do anything..)

Yakumo:   First of all, if the Konron's presence was made known, it'd
	  be exploited by some terrorist or military group.  It's just as
	  bad as the presence of nuclear missiles.

--------------------- p.167

Pai:	  Thank you for all the hard work.  Thanks, Yakumo.

Pai:	  !?

Pai:	  What's wrong, Yakumo?  Hurry up and let me treat your wounds.
	  Pai has made some effective medicine for wounds.

Yakumo:   No, no, no.  I don't need it!  Step back!  Step back!

Pai:	  Nah!

Yakumo:   You silly...

Yakumo:   Wah!

--------------------- p.169

Yakumo:   <gasping noises>

Pai:	  Hmm?  What on earth was THAT?

Yakumo:   Sheeeesh, you...
	  A girl like you shouldn't be so curious!

(Shinjuku News Height)

TV:	  There were concerns that the locusts from Tokyo Bay would
	  reach Tokyo proper, but this morning it was confirmed that a
	  sudden fire at the reclaimed land has annihilated all the locusts.

Background:  Super-Time
Small words: Kanossa (?) stop it!
	     Marketing Paradise comes back!
Bottom:      AH! I can't remember Ueda-san's face...

TV:	  There was a poisionous gas emission after the fire.
	  It's fortunate that fire boats reached the site in time and put
	  the fire out.

Newspaper: Takada Yuzah... work amount.... "Mainichi ga Nichiyoubi" on sale 
	   on 8/20.

["MgN" is one of Takada's early works.  Note the little self-portrait! -IS]

--------------------- p.171

Kimie:	  So the crisis is over, right?

Wong:	  It seems that way... What are the two of them going to do?

Kimie:	  Well...

Kimie:	  What are they going to do?  Looks like Yakumo has decided
	  to say goodbye to his friends, and has resumed his travels.

--------------------- p.172

Kimie:	  Why does he travel so much...

Wong:	  He spent 4 years travelling around the world and investigating
	  things.  Yet the "Sanjiyan Humanization Rite" is still a mystery.

Paper:    Eyewitness accounts of mysterious flying objects above the
	  reclaimed land.  Mystery of Locusts.  UFO theory?!

Wong:	  Come to think of it, it's too dangerous for them to live
	  with ordinary people.

Kimie:	  Yes, I agree.

Kimie:	  Could I ask "Yougekisha" to take care of these two?

Wong:	  Sure.  That's the reason I came here.

Kimie:	  Really? Then I'll ask the lads in Sassoku-gumi [=a yakuza gang]
	  for fake passports...

--------------------- p.173

Yakumo:   Hongkong?

Yakumo:   What's up, Pai?


Yakumo:   You...  Leaving all the serious problems to me while you sleep
	  like a baby.  You're so cunning!
	  I even broke the promise with my friends...

Yakumo:   Sakuko... would she think that I've died?
	  I feel sorry for everybody...

Sanjiyan: Well, now...
	  It's all your fault!!

--------------------- p.174

Sanjiyan: You are but scum, scum in collusion with jackasses!!

Yakumo:   Waaahhh!!

Sanjiyan: Failing to honor the proud mission of the "Wu", you wilfully
	  overlook your own stupidity.
	  Where are the serious problems!!

Yakumo:   Er, well...

Sanjiyan: When my memory is fully restored, I shall bother you no longer.
	  Can you begin to understand Pai's solitude, living alone
	  in the Holy Land??

Yakumo:   Waaahhh! I'm sorry!!

--------------------- p.175

Sanjiyan: After all, I should praise you for your splendid efforts
	  against Taisoei.
	  I permit you to come with me.  You must bring the dagger of Konron.

Sanjiyan: Now we can start our journey.
	  But first, I have to get ready!!  Wait for me at that nearby park.

Yakumo:   Oh...

Yakumo:   YES!!

--------------------- p.176

Yakumo:   (Ah! It's been a long wait, Pai...
	  But I won't let you leave me again!!  No matter what's waiting
	  in store for us, I will definitely...)

Yakumo:   (And then, we will become human... Pai...)

--------------------- p.177

Yakumo:   How come she's so late? What's she doing?

Sign:	  Mr.Lady's Bar -Culture Shock-

Kimie:	  What?  Yakumo's arm was cut off and burnt at the trash dump?
	  Are you trying out some infantile prank on me?

Sakuko:	  But...

Friend A: But I did see Fujii, with a girl, carry a man and his arm...

Sakuko:	  Somehow I was brought back to my home later...

Kimie:	  To be honest, although I was told not to say it...
	  HE ran away last night.

--------------------- p.178

Friend A: RAN..

Friend B: ..A...

Sakuko:	  ..WAY??

Kimie:	  He borrowed too much money... since he was concerned that you guys
	  might get involved with his problems...  he left Tokyo during the
	  He can't see you again.

Sakuko:	  I see... actually, I feel kinda relieved.
	  From the very beginning, Mr. Fujii had been worrying...

Sakuko:	  But it's OK now. Fujii-kun chose his girl instead of the
	  restaurant..  that's really good.

Sakuko:	  As long as he lives, he'll definitely come back sometime and open
	  a restuarant with us.

--------------------- p.179

Friends:  Ah! Definitely...

Sign:	  Culture Shock: Reserved Tonight)

Kimie:	  Hmph!

Wong:	  How was it?

Kimie:	  I said something and sent them away..

--------------------- p.180

Sanjiyan: Puwah...^_^ ^_^
	  Dear me, I've been living this way for 4 years, and now I love this
	  kind of life.
	  However, when that guy's around, Pai's consciousness becomes
	  too strong and I can't come out!

Sanjiyan: Hark!  At least I'll have some fun tonight!

Kimie:	  Do you think it's OK?

Wong:	  W-well...

  Yotsuya:	At any rate, if I say it's a cold, it's a cold
		39! 39 degrees (centegrade)!  Woah!  What a
		temperature!  I said I'm taking the day of,
		take care of my desk for me.

  Yotsuya[remembering Pai's words]: Pai is a member of the immortality
		power weilding Sanjiyanunkara.  Therefore, until
		Pai becomes human, everyone is after her.

  Yotsuya:	In the bar, she wasn't like this at all.  Her imagination
		must be playing tricks on here with that fever.

pg. 204)
  Yotsuya:	If there really are things after the immortality
		power, then that's something I'd like to see.

pg. 205)
  Yotsuya:	I must be getting a little tipsy. 

  Yotsuya:	Well what should I expect drinking all this alcohol.
		I've got to think of what to do with this girl.

pg. 206)
  Pai:		Good morning!

  Yotsuya:	Hey!

  Pai:		Thanks very much for yesterday.  I don't have a way
		to thank you today, but...
  Yotsuya:	Hmmm.

  Yotsuya:	Well, the fever seems to be down a bit, but today
		you should probably rest a bit more.  Do you want
		to go to a doctor?

  Pai:		That's all right.  Thanks.  But if I stay here
		I'll be an inconvenience to you.
  Yotsuya:	Hey!  Where are you going?

  Yotsuya:	Do you even have a place to go?  You're lost aren't

  Yotsuya:	You must be hungry.  How about having some rice[i.e.,
		grub] and then going to the doctor.

pg. 207)
  Pai:		By rice(grub) do you mean rice(food)?
  Yotsuya:	uh, yeah.

  Pai:		Like, choushoku (breakfast in Japanese), and
		breakfast (in English) and zaofan (breakfast
		in Chinese).
  Yotsuya:	Yeah, I think so.

  Pai:		Like, rice and noodles and bread and beef and fish
		and, and,....

  Pai:		No! No! Pai!! Stop it!!  You've got to go.  This
		man will also be in danger if you don't.

  Yotsuya:	What weirdo...  Not the type that I want to
		spend too much time with.

  Pai:		Sorry, mister!!  Someday I promise I'll come
		to repay you.

  Yotsuya:	Hey!

pg. 208)
  Yotsuya:	Is this some kind of joke.  I can't just leave
		sick girl to herself.

  Yotsuya:	Hey!  Where did you go Pai!

pg. 209)
  Yotsuya:	Uhh...

  Pai:		Oh good!  Your alive.  Your legs broken, but
		your alive.

  Pai:		Good....

pg. 210)
  Yotsuya:	You really are a strange one, aren't you.  You
		feel so deeply.

pg. 211)
  Pai:		Heh heh...  But you are pretty unusual too mister.
		Coming with me to help me find my way home.

  Pai:		Even though your not my dachinko (friend) why are
		you so kind.

  Yotsuya:	I'm not nearly as nice as you are... and stop
		calling me "mister",  I have a name you know.
		Yotsuya Keiichiro.  Call me Keiichiro ["Keiichiro"
		is his given name].

  Pai:		Pai, by all means, will do something to repay you.
		Keiichiro, what do you want most of all.
  Yotsuya:	A scoop!

  Yotsuya:	As a present you can restore me to the society

  Pai:		Scoop....

pg. 212)
  Pai:		By "scoop" do mean like that commercial that
		Kyonkyon does...
  Yotsuya:	That's "soup"!!

  Pai:		Then do you mean those things that Mr. Malick bends...
  Yotsuya:	That's "spoon"!!

  Yotsuya:	Well, it was a joke, a joke.  I don't need an thanks.
		I just want to get you home.

  Yotsuya:	Well, do you recognize anything here?
  Pai:		No, it's no good.  Mama's store is no longer
		around, and I don't know where Yakumo lives...

  Yotsuya:	Well it can't be helped...  The only place I
		know is the bar where we met.

  Message board: To Yakumo, went to the "WFF" bar in Shibuya.  Pai.

pg. 213)
  Yotsuya:	You can't remember anything.  Not even which direction
		you came here from?

  Pai:		un unh. 
  Yotsuya:	Maybe if we get drunk again like before you will
		be able to remember.

  Yotsuya:	A joke, a joke.

  Pai:		That's right.  Inside Pai, there's another Pai.

pg. 214)
  Yotsuya:	Pai...

  Yotsuya:	Until you find you're way home, I'd like to hang
		out with you.

  Yotsuya:	But...

  Yotsuya:	it's so strange.  Before she could really hold her
		liquor, and today she's down after one glass.  (maybe
		it's the cold)

  Yotsuya:	Well, I guess we should be getting home.

pg. 215)
  Yotsuya:	Wahh!

  Customers:	Eiiiii!

  Yotsuya:	Ar...are you okey Pai....

  Yotsuya:	Wha...what... is that.

pg. 217)
  Yotsuya:	Hiiii!

pg. 218)
  Headline:	Mysterious explosion in Shibuya bar.

  Next to picture: By coincidence a reporter from this paper
		was on the scene.
  At bottom:	Police department investigation

  Boss:		You did good Yotsuya!!  This is a reall fine
		piece of work.  You got your scoop didn't you.

  Yotsuya:	I didn't write anything about what I really
		saw with my own eyes.  The real scoop is yet
		to come.
