A Spider Web
-> RTS Page for Little Jumper 4
TEXT1: Year 6, Class 4 Teacher: Satou Kaori
BOOK1: Nanshou Middle School Yearbook
BUBBLE1: So there's no trace of her in the names registry or any albums....
BUBBLE2: We won't find her at this rate.
BUBBLE3: Don't you remember anything, kid?
BUBBLE1: Dad! I'm not "Kid" - call me "Chima!"
BUBBLE2: If you have the energy to fuss over your own name, use it to remember your mother's.
BUBBLE3: In the future, knowing someone's nickname makes their real name unnecessary.
BUBBLE4: Then, what's your mother's nickname, Chima?
BOOK2: Nanshou Student Council Name Registry
SMALL BUBBLE1: cha (the sound of the plate hitting the book)
BUBBLE6: What's up?
TITLE: Chapter 4: A Spider Web
sfx: ban (BAM)
TEXT1: What a gap!
SMALL BUBBLE1: pushuuu (sound of door opening)
BUBBLE4: It's shaking!
BUBBLE5: It's shaking!!
SMALL BUBBLES2-4: gatatan (sound of train moving along the tracks)
BUBBLE7: I'm gonna dieee!!
SMALL BUBBLE5: puan (horn)
sfx: pushuuu (deflating)
sfx: guttari (she went limp)
BUBBLE1: H-How're you doing, Chima?
BUBBLE2: Don't tell me people in the future don't ride trains....
BUBBLE3: I-I'm fine!
BUBBLE4: I won't lose!
sfx: yuraaa (shakily rising)
BUBBLE1: Even if I do have to brave through this primitive, savage world, I won't be beaten!
(SMALL)BUBBLE2: But, a train that shakes doesn't make any sense!
BUBBLE3: For my mom's sake,
BUBBLE4: I'll do my best!
SMALL BUBBLE1: Would I be wrong
SMALL BUBBLE2: if I whack her one...?
TEXT1: I can understand that sort of single-mindedness, but hers seems a little off.
TEXT2: Still, I do kind of like that about her. Maybe I'm weird, too.
BUBBLE5: Wha... What's going on!?
SMALL TEXT: Huh?
BUBBLE7: I'm holding up my left hand like I'm supposed to, but the vending machine won't react!
BUBBLE1: I don't know how they work seventeen years from now,
SMALL BUBBLES1-2: charin (clink)
BUBBLE2: but if you don't put money in these vending machines, or tickets in a ticket machine, they won't react!
BUBBLE4: is so...weird!
BUBBLE5: So, wait, I can't access the information bureau?
BUBBLE6: Then, no one can check identities using those terminals activated by the invisible 2D codes in our left hands...
TEXT1: What a hassle...
BUBBLE7: Is that why people in the future don't care about names?
BUBBLE8: I'm certain people called my mom 'Ai'-san.
BUBBLE9: Everyone did.
sfx: uuuun (Hmmmmm)
BUBBLE1: All right!
BUBBLE2: And what else?
BUBBLE3: Was it her name? An initial?
BUBBLE4: Congrats, 'Ai'-san!
BUBBLE5: Hey, is 'Ai' you name? An initial?
BUBBLE6: Yes, it's...
sfx: boyaa (whoosh)
BUBBLE8: We went to a few resaurants... and I think she explained it at one of them....
sfx: boyaa (whoosh)
BUBBLE8: Ahhhh! If I only had another bite from that place,
BUBBLE9: I know I would be able to remember!
BUBBLE1: Shall we go then?
BOX2: we may be chasing after a clue that's
BOX3: as flimsy as a spider web,
SIGN: Cake Viking (Cake Buffet)
BOX4: but this is all for Chima's mother.
BOX1: I certainly don't mind lending a hand or two...
BUBBLE1: Yay! Cream puffs!
SMALL BUBBLE1: Awesome!
BUBBLE2: Whatever... Listen, you shouldn't take the son of a pastry chef to a cake buffet.
TEXT: We have plenty of leftovers everday, you know...
BUBBLE3: You're just spoiled, dad!
BUBBLE4: Grandpa's cake's are the best, right?
BUBBLE5: And that's why I can't eat stuff from other shops.
BUBBLE6: I see.
BUBBLE7: So? Do you remember anything?
BUBBLE1: Next is that European place!
BUBBLE4: You and Mom had a big fight that day.
BUBBLE5: Afterwards, mom took me with her to about five or six places to eat.
BUBBLE6: Are you serious!?
BUBBLE1: At the last place, mom was commended for something, and that's when I heard her name...
BUBBLE2: If I continue to eat in the same order of that day, I may remember it.
BUBBLE3: Anyway, I'm going to work hard, dad!
BUBBLE4: You don't have to work THAT hard...
BUBBLE6: this is ridiculous. Can't we go home yet?
BUBBLE7: Tough it out.
BUBBLE8: Information gathering is another one of our duties.
BUBBLE9: She may come into contact with the other rebuilt.
BUBBLE1: Please, just let me arrest her.
BUBBLE2: I even built this anti-shock wave protection device for this.
BUBBLE3: Until we get some vital information, letting her swim around is our best course of action.
BUBBLE4: Oh, right! Our next stop is that Japanese teahouse.
BUBBLE5: A-Are you sure about that...?
BUBBLE1: Hmmmmm. I guess this place is next...
BUBBLE2: Hey, let's stop.
BUBBLE3: We can try again some other time.
TEXT1: You did your best.
BUBBLE4: No, dad! I won't give up!
BUBBLE5: This is feeling of fullness is an important key as well!
sfx: brp... (whatever sound is used for being on the edge of vomitting)
TEXT1: Mom! I won't lose!
BOX1: She's definitely offbeat,
BOX2: but I like her single-mindedness.
BOX3: I like her passion.
BOX4: I guess it's something that I lack.
BUBBLE1: So she's my daughter, huh.
BUBBLE2: Though it would be just fine if she weren't...
BUBBLE1: What's wrong, Chima!?
BUBBLE2: Sorry, but I don't feel good.
BUBBLE3: You ate too much, silly!
BUBBLE4: Anyway, see if you can vomit in the bathroom.4k
BUBBLE5: Nooo... I can't move....
BUBBLE7: I don't want to throw up the food that you got me, dad.
BUBBLE8: Even though you had no money, you bought everything that I wanted...
BUBBLE9: You're crazy! Come on...!
BUBBLE10: Shall I call an ambulance?
BUBBLE1: Yes, please. Thank you very-
BUBBLE2: That won't be necessary.
BUBBLE3: Shall we depart? We're inconveincing the owner.
BUBBLE4: No way! I won't let you take us away from the public eye.
BUBBLE5: Won't it be troublesome if the ambulance arrives?
BUBBLE6: What do you think will happen
BUBBLE7: when the people of this epoch investigate the body of this rebuilt?
BUBBLE8: Your daughter would be captured by the government
BUBBLE9: and history would undergo a massive change.
BUBBLE1: That's still better than being caught by you guys!
BUBBLE3: Let's just spray some nerve gas and take over the store.
SMALL BUBBLE1: Hee hee hee
BUBBLE4: Jus try it!
BUBBLE5: Got a problem!?
BUBBLE6: Focus on the nerves connecting the glabella to your right eye.
BUBBLE7: Hold the image of a circle
BUBBLE8: while saying "drive on" in your head.
BUBBLE9: After the recovery disc materializes,
BUBBLE10: a menu will appear in your right eye.
BUBBLE11: Leave the "Memory" attribute alone,
BUBBLE12: but reset the "Body" attribute.
BUBBLE1: I hate fighting low-level competition!
BUBBLE2: I'll give you another piece of advice.
BUBBLE3: There's also a power level attribute in that menu! Be careful if you mess with the output!
BUBBLE2: Chi... Chima!
BUBBLE1: Chief, you gave them too much info!
BUBBLE2: She only ate an excess of food;
BUBBLE3: you didn't need to tell her how to use the disc!
BUBBLE4: Knowing how to use the disc
BUBBLE5: will make it easier for her to swim around.
BUBBLE6: Yeah...I suppose.
BUBBLE7: But who knows if that will lead us to vital info.
BUBBLE8: That's the real problem.
BUBBLE4: Thank goodness!
BUBBLE7: You're okay!
BUBBLE9: Thank goodness! (if "Thank God" fits better, use that.)
BOX1: Thank goodness.
BUBBLE1: This is the last place!
BUBBLE2: My stomach is all better, and my head is all clear!
BUBBLE3: Right! My mom was able to completely finish her meal here
BUBBLE4: and she was commended for it...
BUBBLE5: Congratulations, Ai-san!
BUBBLE6: Does "Ai" stand for something?
BUBBLE7: Yes, it sounds like the initial "I" from Ichinose.
SMALL BUBBLE1: Burp.
BUBBLE8: That sucks!
BOX1: And so, the spider web
BOX2: was torn to shreds.
