Really the premise isn't established until the end of the first volume.
[Hito Hitori Futari 2 Translation by Kewl0210]
Riyon: You've gotta be kiddin' me.
The drunkard I've gotta protect is the Prime Minister...?
Whadda ya mean?
He's too important to have 514 days to live.
Title: Life 2
The Prime Minister and Riyon
SFX: SUU ZUUUH
Riyon: I really don' wanna do this.
If I stick with this much of a VIP I just know it's gonna be trouble.
Kasuga: Vu... Vu.
Riyon: Huh? He apologized?
He must be havin' some bad dream.
Riyon: Well, I can't say I blame him.
Right now this guy doesn't have anybody protecting his soul.
Riyon: Okay, I get it. Whether he's the Prime Minister or whoever, it's my job to protect him...
[And there she goes...]
[His head's actually a rubix cube.]
[And inside, it's a ball pit.]
Riyon: Woah, there are this many black balls?
This's gotta be what's causing the nightmares.
Well, looks like it's up to me.
Time to clean up.
this is where you guys came from, isn' it?
Go right along back to your own world.
Riyon: Bye byyye!
[AAaaand time passes.]
Newspaper: Cabinet approval rating goes down 4 points to 9.6%
TV: Good morning.
This is Wake Up Japan.
Guy: It finally seems that a movement to dismiss Prime Minister Kasuga will be coming from within the People's Allies Party. What are your thoughts?
Guy 2:I think it's the natural move.
I suppose Prime Minister Kasuga's centripetal force really is falling. There's no denying he's lacking the leadership to pull this country along.
Now then, let's hear from some people on the street.
Woman: Well, right now I don't think anything'll change no matter who does it, don't you think?
Man: Why's he clinging so hard to the seat of Prime Minister?
In any regular company, if you can't do your job, you lose it.
Man: Don't you think it's odd?
It's because there's no one in this country that can fire an incompetent Prime Minister.
I have your necktie for today.
Are you... not feeling well?
Kasuga: ...No, I'm fine.
Guy: So, how's he doing this morning?
Woman: He didn't seem that well, but...
Guys: Well, he's gotta be hungover.
He's already on the brink of collapse.
It's true, he may be at his limit.
But even if we try to help him, he just shuts himself off from people so much...
He lacks the caliber to stand at the top of this country.
It may be time to replace him.
People: Good morning.
Reporter: It seems that there will be a movement for your dismissal at the joint plenary meeting of party members of both houses of the diet. Could we have a statement on that?!!
Do you have any thoughts about resigning?
They're getting gooey and sticking together. I can't pick them up at all!
You've really just gotta get yourself together!
Riyon: It's because of all these gaps that black balls are getting in.
Could ya get ahold of yourself!
Box: Chief Cabinet Secretary
Kasuga: For you to come to a place like this, it must be pretty important, right?
Anzai: I couldn't disturb you during your precious studying time.
However, Prime Minister...
If there's a movement for your dismissal at the joint plenary meeting, it's nearly impossible it'll be voted down.
Kasuga: If you say it's nearly, then it's not 100%.
Anzai: If you have a meeting with Kiyonaga-san, it will create a possibility.
Kasuga: So you're saying to bow my head to Kiyonaga
in order to protect the seat of Prime Minister...?
Anzai: What happens will all depend on what you think, Prim Minister.
If you do feel like meeting with him,
We could even set it for this evening...
Anzai: I'll be perfectly blunt,
I think you realize it yourself, but you are currently standing on the edge of a cliff.
Among the party and the populace, there isn't a single person who has confidence in you.
Will you try to make a big comeback?
Or continue to sink?
Please make a decision.
Box: Former Prime Minister People's Friend Party
You won't be sorry.
Kiyonaga: There's nothing as shameful as being dragged down from a height.
I can prepare for you a way to bow out after some triumph.
Your name will remain after your death...
Riyon: HA HA HA HA HA HA
What's with this?
Riyon: He's being possessed by evil like crazy!!
Kasuga: The nation is angry
at your thickheadedness and incompetence...
But to still cling to your seat of power makes them doubt your humanity.
They want you to just primptly disappear!
Box: Cabinet Prime Minister
